Historic Heatwave

“we live in an unscientific age in which almost all the buffeting of communications and television-words, books, and so on-are unscientific. As a result, there is a considerable amount of intellectual tyranny in the name of science.”

    in Tony’s video he details how Democrat senator Tim worth tried to scam the public by sabotaging the air conditioning in the Capitol building on the day of the hearing in 1988. my question is when is the Democrat party not trying to scam the public? I’m 65 years old and my entire life I’ve been hammered with scare stories from the left. in the late sixties we were running out of topsoil and we’re all going to starve. then came the coming ice age which later on became global warming which later on became climate change. it seems to me we’ve been running out of oil for almost 100 years. funny that the same people that told us we’re running out of oil don’t seem to worry about running out of electricity by electrifying everything. Russia Trump collusion scam went on for years. then they put 10 years of scams into one scare with the covid-19, wear masks, 6 ft apart, get an untested vaccine saga. that one is still playing out. Let’s not forget 90 some felonies Trump supposedly committed. I would trust a drunk gambling addict more than a Democrat politician.

      68 yrs here and you are correct. Acid rain that turned out to be Pine Beetles killing the trees and Ozone hole that would DESTROY THE EARTH…except it is a recurring problem century after century…4.2 Billion yrs old Earth and Humans at 25,000 yrs as Sentient beings and we think we KNOW all everything. the facts.

        I seem to remember that the ozone hole seems to have been discovered and rediscovered coinciding with DuPont’s patents on various refrigerant gases expiring, and then they presented a “just discovered new gas” just in time to maintain their near-monopoly with a new patent.

        • It was heavily backed by the US aviation industry following the failure of the Boeing 2707 project, in order to destroy the market for the Anglo-French Concorde. Strange how an industry which showed absolutely no concern for airport noise and atmospheric pollution suddenly developed a conscience. Remember, it is not the politicians, but who is bribing them which determines the next scare. Always follow the money.

        oh yes. acid rain. you can’t hide from that one. lol. if we’re listing hoaxes and scares alphabetically I think Alar would be next. lol. we’ve been 6 years away from the tipping point for something like 75 years. lol. on the bright side for a moment, U.S. industry has discovered a new source for copper and it’s environmentally sound – EV charging stations in Oakland California. lol.

        • Carson’s ‘Silent Spring’ which led to the banning of DDT and subsequent deaths of tens of millions of Africans to malaria, which was the first heavily promoted scare story. A pity nobody saw the genocide in the subtext. At least Ehrlich in ‘the Population Bomb’ was straightforward in declaring the intention of wiping out much of humanity. All these care stories are heavily sponsored by the usual Malthusian, rich psychopaths.

    Ah, the spring/summer of 1988. Where I lived in the midwest, I remember that spring and summer vividly … as the summer that I realized I had somehow been transported to the fabled California coast. Every single day for two months, no rain, beautiful blue skies, temperatures in the mid- to high-eighties. Every single day, I went for a long 25 mile bike ride along the local river after work.

    For me the worst heat wave year was the summer of 1980 here in Arkansas. I have (not so) fond memories of getting a wind burn on my left arm driving my un-air conditioned telephone company truck. Somehow I survived temperatures approaching 110F. I was a central office technician and, while it was cool in the offices, I had to drive to our small remote offices every day. It was brutal. At least I spent part of the day in air conditioned comfort but our linemen and cable splicers were stuck outside all day. So I judge Arkansas summers by the standard of 1980. As I write this it’s 97 outside-cool by the standard of 1980.

    By the time I retired in 2012 all of our vehicles were air conditioned. It makes me wonder if the climate crazies have thought about leading a push to ban air conditioning in vehicles. I certainly don’t want to give them any ideas.
