In 2015, the Obama administration made an agreement with China based around China increasing their CO2 emissions for at least 16 years.  They called this a “climate change agreement.”

CO2 emissions in the US have been declining for over a decade, as China’s emissions skyrocket.

Climate Goals Pledged by China and the U.S. – The New York Times

Karen Carpenter was an extremely talented singer/drummer in the 1970s and 1980s.  In 1973, she saw a picture of herself which she didn’t like, and became obsessed with losing weight, even though she was very thin.  She hardly ate anything and took 80-90 laxative pills per night. In 1983 she died of heart failure weighing 91 pounds.

This is what happens when people develop mental illness where they become terrified by something they need to survive. Whoever is financing the climate change scam, wants western civilization gone. Donald Trump identified what is going on nearly a decade ago – one of the reasons why people on the political left are working so hard to get rid of him.

The US could drop off the face of the earth, and it would have little or no impact on either atmospheric CO2 or climate, but that isn’t the end game here.

    NOAA falsifies all their temperature records, past and present.

    Why do we believe their CO2 records?

    Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about the motivations involved in this whole climate change debate. It’s very difficult to tease apart the ones driving the direction of the discussion from those that simply follow suit and add “volume” to one side or the other of the argument. I also think many people with vastly different motivations glom onto the AGW bandwagon, because whatever their “end” is, the AGW movement provides those means in spades. For example, those pushing renewable forms of energy as the only viable means of producing electrical power use AGW as a weapon to kill coal and gas. Those pushing the use of electric cars use AGW to kill off the internal combustion engine. The militant vegetarians/vegans can use it to suggest that eating meat is hurting the earth. Those who resent “rich” people (i.e., Americans) use AGW to suggest that any number of modern conveniences are now, all of a sudden, a threat to the world. Driving, flying, A/C, meat, dairy, having children, and any number of new sins that lie just around the corner are all to be laid at the feet and sacrificed in the name of AGW. Those that hate the US can use it to undermine our economy and entire way of life.

    Thus, AGW is a one-stop-shop for those various extreme factions that want to effect radical societal change in a very short time. This, I believe, is why the “denier” label was introduced and weaponized. The very first time I saw it used in print, I recognized it for what it was: an unmistakable and intentional echoing of “holocaust denial,” bringing with it all the force and weight of that term and ascribing it to the new “deniers” of climate change. The AGW movement has gained significant traction and momentum in society, which in turn is seen as progress towards those many “ends” that are so powerfully desired by so many different extremist groups of people. For this reason, any question or challenge to the AGW party line is seen as an attempt to derail it, and *must* be countered with a religious fervor. This is why the media has monolithically pushed this false concept of “settled science” and viciously attacked anyone who dares to challenge the AGW orthodoxy.

    And so, the issue written in the headlines is not really the issue. AGW is just a means to a wide variety of ends. This is why they alarmists and hysterical warnings of imminent doom are trotted out by people who should, and do know better. AOC knows the world isn’t going to end in 12 years; she admitted this some weeks after she first made this statement. Yet, she felt the ends she is seeking justified yelling “fire” in a crowded theater. These ends will justify much more than alarmist rhetoric before it’s over.

      That is the beauty of their scam. If it is decided that governments need to regulate CO2, they will have license to regulate every human activity. They will control every aspect of our lives.

    The plan is working in Germany:

    Germany’s Economic Backbone Suffers From Soaring Power Prices

    Mittelstand companies weighed down by higher electricity costs are struggling against competition from U.S. and China

    “We’re constantly trying to improve energy efficiency,” said Klaus Schmidtke, a spokesman for Georgsmarienhuette GmbH, which employs 1,000 people and feeds steel parts into the supply chain of Volkswagen AG. “But to be blunt, we’ve not been able to offset rising electricity prices.”

    Wholesale power rates on a tear across Europe, and apart from consuming less, there’s little that companies can do about it. The surge can be traced back to jumping demand for generation fuels from coal in China to natural gas in Japan. And that globalization of the energy market is eating away at support for Merkel’s transition away from coal and toward clean energy.

    The companies, together households, had to cough up hundreds of billions of euros to pay for Merkel’s transition to an economy based on mainly solar and wind. That put them at a disadvantage against competitors from China to the U.S., as well as other European nations.

    Some are even starting to produce their own electricity, while others have shifted production abroad in a last-ditch effort to keep up with Chinese, South Korean and U.S. competitors who pay far less for electricity.

    And Australia:

    BlueScope invests $1 billion in the US amid concerns of Australian energy prices

    “We still face energy costs in this country that are too high.

    “The energy costs for our investment in North America are about a third of what we would pay in Australia.”

    I guess these folks have not heard the message: SOLAR & WIND ARE CHEAPER!!!

    Solar now ‘cheaper than grid electricity’ in every Chinese city, study finds

    If these companies only read Carbon Brief instead of their monthly monthly electricity bill, they would be fine!

    China is where those George Carlin called “the owners” have been building their model society of centrally managed hybrid of communism for the masses and crony capitalism for those at the top of the economic and political pyramid. Technocracy, the end game of progressivism essentially.

    Because of this China was allowed to keep its domestic content laws and other protectionist policies while getting free access to the US market. Economists do their part saying that one-way free trade is a good thing.

    Trump’s tariffs are too little too late and they don’t do anything at this point except make americans pay more for goods. That might have helped in the 1980s and 90s as leverage for China to drop their protectionist policies to get two way real free trade and environmental protection. Now it’s too little too late. China has too much of the manufacturing base now. The economists however think low priced goods at chinese expense benefits americans. But it’s not about the product, it’s about where it is made.

    The idea was always to move the means of production to China. To impoverish the free(ish) societies and promote the model centrally planned and controlled society. This is done through moving the capital to model society, China. The tooling, the factories, the know-how. That’s what was wanted.

    That’s also why China gets a pass not only on real pollution but CO2 as well. The desire was to close down industry in the USA at whatever cost required. Subsidized goods, turning Chinese cities into polluted cesspools, whatever it took.

    Minnesota, eh? While dairies are being driven out of business there, others have bought into the warming stories and tried their hand at grapes and wineries.

    Sections titled “Bad Weather” and “Extreme Crop Losses” sum up the problem.

  6. Don B says:

    From the NYT July 1, 2017 article:
    “Over all, 1,600 coal plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries…..”

    Those 62 countries signed the Paris Climate Accord, promising to someday start to think about maybe reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

    Because you have nowhere here that people can leave tips, I’ll just put this here and hope you see it.

    Last year’s extreme snowfall wiped out breeding of Arctic animals and plants

    In 2018, vast amounts of snow were spread across most of the Arctic region and did not melt fully until late summer, if at all. Publishing on October 15 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, researchers documented the consequences of this extreme weather event at Zackenberg, Northeast Greenland by extensively monitoring all components of the local ecosystem for more than 20 years, allowing them to compare life in the extreme year of 2018 to other, more “normal,” years.

    The Arctic is home to a diverse and specialized group of organisms, highly adapted to life under the severe climatic conditions. But now the Arctic is changing, and the region is experiencing both long-term warming and retreating snow-cover. At the same time, climatic variability and the risk of extreme events is increasing. While the consequences of longer-term change are well-documented, we know almost nothing about the impacts of climatic variability and extreme events on the Arctic ecosystems.

    The 2018 snow conditions resulted in the most complete reproductive failure ever encountered at Zackenberg, and only few plants and animals were able to reproduce due to abundant and late-melting snow. While poor reproduction had been observed in individual species before, such poor reproduction across all levels of the ecosystem had never been seen.

    ok. so if the cow operation doesn’t get expanded, does that mean the existing vegetation in those fields will never decay and the deer that eat it will never poop? what is swamp gas?

    • Gamecock says:

      Or milk will be gotten elsewhere. This court order restricts supply. Not demand. People will get their milk elsewhere. Same number of cows, same manure, just elsewhere.

      Frankly, if government is going to screw with the dairy industry, more smaller, dispersed farms is better. A 6,000 cow mega farm is easy pickings for government regulators.

      Government and environmentalists fighting to keep dairies small makes me smile.

  10. Bob G. says:

    I doubt Minnesota has more dairy cows now than it had 45 years ago during the global cooling scare. It’s just that the herds got larger. Tiny Veblen, SD is home to about 10,000 dairy cows. I drove through Veblen recently and the heat was tremendous!! LOL
