Imagine …

Imagine you lived in a very safe upper-middle class neighborhood in America, with almost no crime. There is always electricity, gas, light, heat, communications and food available. You have Internet access no matter where you are or what you are doing. Your local gas station always has low cost fuel available. You can drive anywhere you want knowing that there will be fuel available for your car 24 hours a day. You can hop on a plane and go anywhere in the world. Your stores are packed with food and there is a restaurant on every corner. Criminals are afraid to enter your neighborhood, because they know that many homeowners have the ability to defend themselves.

Now imagine that you are willing to throw it all away because CNN told you there is a climate crisis, and that evil NRA members are going to come shoot you with black assault rifles.

In the 16th century, many people believed witches cooked up storms.

Now they believe Republicans cause them.

    My sincerest apologies to John Lennon…

    “Imagine”

    Imagine there’s no Hansen
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to shill or lie for
    And no Michael Mann too
    Imagine all these people
    Giving us some peace…

    You may say I’m a denier
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And blame climate on the Sun

    Imagine no alarmists
    I wonder if you can
    No screed allowing plunder
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine no more people
    Scaring all the world…

    You may say I’m a denier
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And put focus on the Sun

    Then there is this…

    It is hard to believe B Sanders believes in this climate emergency hoax. I think he is just a Big Brother operative/puppet who sold his soul to have an easier life in the so hated 1 % elite.

    Progressives could solve this problem themselves, without Conservatives. All they need to do is black-out out each large city in the United States for a few days each month on a rotating basis. Or introduce electrical austerity measures after business hours for all non-essential uses.

    This would stop global warming and save all of the natural landscapes from wind, solar and mining.

      The really keen ones could go further and secede, returning to their yearned for better time – say the 7th century – along with some like-minded Islamists and communists. Maybe when the rest of us see what a great time they are having, we’ll all choose to follow their example.

    Toured Regensburg today and that’s exactly one of the topics covered, but not as an analogy for climate change insanity.

  5. Emslander says:

    It’s arrogance on the scale of King Ozymandias to believe that we puny human beings can do anything about the climate.

    I was curious what the symbols on the green banners meant…

    Extinction Symbol

    The symbol above represents extinction. The circle signifies the planet, while the hourglass inside serves as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species. The world is currently undergoing a mass extinction event, and this symbol is intended to help raise awareness of the urgent need for change in order to address this crisis. Estimates are that somewhere between 30,000 and 140,000 species are becoming extinct every year in what scientists have named the Holocene, or Sixth Mass Extinction. This ongoing process of destruction is being caused by the impact of human activity. Such a catastrophic loss of biodiversity is highly likely to cause widespread ecosystem collapse and consequently render the planet uninhabitable for humans.

    Holocene, or Sixth Mass Extinction? I can’t find “Sixth Mass Extinction” listed anywhere as an epoch.

    30,000-140000 species going extinct annually? Can they give us a list? From that spread of numbers, it appears that they have no idea.

    Scientists say this? Not unless you count grantology and alarmology as science.

  7. Gator says:

    A few years ago I looked into these weenie extinction claims, and this was what I discovered…

    As long as species have been evolving, species have been going extinct. It is estimated that over 99.9% of all species that ever lived are extinct.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extinction

    List of all species that may have gone extinct since the invention of “CAGW”…

    1979 – Last sightings of the Javan tiger.
    1981 – The Puhielelu hibiscadelphus becomes extinct.
    1981 – Last sighting of the green-blossom pearlymussel
    – The 24-rayed sunstar.
    1985 – The platypus frog
    1989 – The golden toad
    – The Atitlán grebe
    1990 – The dusky seaside sparrow
    1994 – Saint Croix racer
    1997 – The Hainan ormosia

    Ten in forty years. How many species are there? Good question!

    About 8.7 million (give or take 1.3 million) is the new, estimated total number of species on Earth.

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110823180459.htm

    So they are predicting 1,450,000 species extinctions? Well, at the current rate, that would take 5,800,000 years.

    Alarmists just aren’t real good with math. Maybe instead of using models, they should try a calculator.

      If I’m not mistaken in all places poverty levels have gone down the environment has improved. If not for coal and oil there would be no tree left in the US.

    • paul courtney says:

      Gator: You’re using denialist math again! See, those ten in forty years are actually counted (we’ll call that “the data”), but what of the undercounted areas of the globe? As in CliSci, we recognize that the arctic was undercounted, and we know LOTS of critters went extinct in the southern hemisphere that were not counted. If you want “global extinction” numbers, apply adjustments and voila! 140,000. Which is also data! Error bars only go up in CliSci, so you can select the upper bound by using more numbers! As a bonus, you can call the upper bound “data”. Please try to stay up.
      Sarc off, Mr. Heller, congresswoman AOC is asking you to post that view of Miami Beach (The Gleason Show intro, right?) showing catastrophic sea rise swallowing the City AAAAuuuuuugh! Thanks

    Gator, you’re a hoot, brother! Keep it up.

    Remember the movie Zardos? Great performance from young and well-stacked Sean Connery.

    A group of elite humans had perfected technology to the point where they were immortal (unless aging was imposed as punishment by other members of the group) and were largely indestructible. They could choose to do anything … but since they had already done it all there was nothing left for them … other than leave simple lives and be very polite to one another. These elites repressed the normal (mortal) humans by flying around in a giant stone head, intimidating and where necessary killing anyone outside their special group who might start building any rival technology.

    The only thing that was any danger to these technological elites was boredom and then slipping into madness because of the drudging monotony.

    Anyone who hasn’t seen it … don’t waste any more time.

    • arn says:

      You forgot to mention that the elites had exterminators who took
      “care” of the common people(nowadays journalists,celebrities,politicians)
      and that they were heavily involved into metaphysical occult stuff(bohemian grove,hellfire club etc))

    Runs this week. Theme is that the left has failed to cause a recession just by talking about one.
    Tuesday called at 12:30 for a run to Dexter, MO then to Paragould, AR, then back home. Departed at 14:00 Tues. day and got back home 34 hours later.
    Thursday called at 20:30 to take a load to Rochester, NY that was supposed to leave NLT 17:30. Delivered on time at 11:00
    Friday. Took a break and got home at 06:30 this morning.
    I have had more last minute emergency calls in the last 6 weeks than I had total during the first 7 months of the year. Things normally don’t start getting this stupid until October when the grocery warehouses start stocking up for the holiday season. Truck traffic is still up big time. Usually from Friday night through Sunday night finding truck parking is a breeze. But I noticed on the way home last night and this morning that every rest area and truck stop was full or nearly so.

    Had to deal with some rough weather up on I-90 driving home last night. Wind advisory was 25 mph with gusts over 50 mph and the trailer I was pulling was practically empty. Usually when I have to deal with winds up on I-90 it’s blowing in from the north over lake Erie. This time it was a south wind. Heavy thunderstorms in places also. BTW NWS radio reported lake water temperature off Rochester to be 45 F. I listened to their lake conditions report TWICE through because I thought I had misheard it the first time.

    • rah says:

      It does show a little patch of colder water right off of Rochester. Rain from them squall line of the cold front missed us here. Though my grass is still green the ground is very hard. The crops, my yard, and the frogs could use a good soaker.

      • Stewart Pid says:

        I don’t know for sure but I figured the patch of cold is from the Niagara River and the stirring up of the water column caused by the river flow.

    Hi all, its J. from Austria!

    Today a female friend of mine called me a “Klimasünder” (climate sinner). It was funny bec. this strong independent woman is known for being an atheist.
