Newly sworn in Democratic Party Congresswoman for New York, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appahe calrently suffering delusions of grandeur after only two weeks in the job, is proposing a legislative package which she calls a “national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II,” according to a letter the sent to colleagues.
The specifics of the plan, dubbed the “Green New Deal,” will be released next week – however Ocasio-Cortez lays out several goals in the letter, including reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions “through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers,” while creating millions of “good, high-wage jobs,” according to Bloomberg. The plan also aims to ensure prosperity and security while investing in US infrastructure and industry.
The “Green New Deal” will also fight racism apparently. Climate change and racism? Who is she going to appoint as VP, David feckin’ Blaine.
It is just empty words of course, this hippy – dippy, cultural Marxist, virtue signalling tartlette is saying nothing new, in fact what she is saying tells us she does not have a single original thought in her ethnically diverse little head. Miss Ocasio-Cortez simply is exposing her delusional belief that heaven can be recreated here on earth with enough government intervention in everything. It is an idea that has been tried many times over the past 100 years, and failed, creating a wave of humanitarian crises, every time. To think it might world this time simply because it is dressed up in green propaganda is either insane or stupid but probably a little of both.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is good; it is plant food. Most of it comes from natural cycles, and before the industrial age it was headed to dangerously low levels in the atmosphere(240 parts per million – at 200 ppm everything dies,). Without sufficient levels of atmospheric CO2 plants die, and then so would all animals who depend on them as food. And then the animals that depend on animals that depend on plants for food, for food. It was perhaps fortunate that mankind figured out how to liberate large amounts of CO2 that was stored in the ground as coal, oil and natural gas. On the other hand nature has a wonderful way of balancing things and maybe, just maybe the system would have thrown itself into reverse with CO2 levels rising to several thousand parts per million as they have in the past according to paleo – ecoologists, (ironically CO2 sometimes reached those dizzy levels during past ice ages although in other prolonged periods of intense cold it fell, which ought to suggest even to the thikest scientists that CO2 levels have little effect on mean temeratures.
As far as CO2 in the atmosphere being the driver of temperature goes, the actual science (as opposed to the computer modelling,) shows that it has a negligible effect at best. The primary greenhouse gas, water vapour moderates any CO2 effect by raining out, so that the overall greenhouse effect is stable; this is the saturation effect which limits the amount of greenhouse gas the atmosphere can hold. Furthermore, the ice core data shows that CO2 is the effect and temperature is the cause when it comes to the relationship between atmospheric CO”2 and temperature. What drives the ice ages with intervening inter-glacial warming periods (like today’s warming) are the Milankovitch cycles related to changes in the eccentricity of the earths orbit, changes in its axial tilt, and the precessional cycle. Shorter term variations in temperature are related to a multitude of cycles in solar activity.
Just like socialism/communism, global warming is a government run plunder and control scam, which means this political bimbo is doubly self identifying as a scam artist. I wouldn’t want her managing my company’s finances, and certainly wouldn’t recommend American voters to support any party that takes her ideas seriously. Far too many nations in the developed world have incompetents holding high office simply because of their ability to recite bullshit that appeals to university brainwashed millennials the. Alexandria’s highest economic attainment in life before being elected was employment as a bartender (which as relavent experience of suitability for high office is somewhat better than Barack Obama’s ice cream slinger, community organiser and, allegedly, professional cocksucker.
One must suppose however, those Bambi eyes and beestung lips play well to members of the great unwashed with poor intellectual skills.
A report from a new study conducted by University College London’s may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry. The report challenges the academic establishment’s standard narrative of mass displacement in Africa being principally responsible for the creation of refugees in Africa and casts doubt on a number of other assumptions about global problems.
Hurricane Harvey Climate Catastrophe Man Made?As we reported last week the Hurricane Harvey disaster which has hit the U.S. states of Texas and Louisiana has shown characteristics never before observed in any hurricane or tropical storm since records began. Meteorological depressions (because that is what hurricanes, typhoons and other intense storms are,) move and once over land quickly weaken as air pressures become normalised. Harvey has stayed in the same area, dumping massive amounts of rain on the heavily populated coastal strip and causing $$$billionsworth of damage through flooding and high winds.
Fulfilling another campaign pledge, US President Donald Trump yesterday announced the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate pact and that he will work to renegotiate the international agreement in a way that treats American workers better. “So we are getting out, but we will start to negotiate and we will see if we can …
Even as the inbred idiot Prince Charles was babbling to a hand picked audience about the skid marks in his underpants being caused by Climate Change, a somewhat more scientifically literate person, Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert, a retired geologist and data computation expert, has confirmed what those of us dubbed ‘climate deniers’ have been telling you for years …

It is customary for US Presidents, when they leave office either having served two terms, been defeated in an election, or of their own volition, to fade quietly into the background. This is largely good manners, for an ex President to appear to be trying to intervene on political issues and influence events or public …
The Paris summit on climate change approasches, which means the tree hugging fascist tendency are turning up the volume to eleven again. Trouble is they cannot produce a shed of evidence to back up their wild claims of imminent catastrophe because global warming only exists in their mathematical models, in the real world it is not happening/
The carbon dioxide driven climate change scam is back on the agenda as yet another monstrously expensive and fossil fulel gobbling jolly for politicians, scientists, freeloaders and general wankers gather to eat, drink, talk a lot and do nothing about a problem that exists in mathematical models but not in the real world.
The real problem here is that, driven by the hysterical warnings of self interested pseudo-scientists, politicians have set unachievable targets for reducing emissions while demanding that national economies keep growing.
This blog has always been sceptical of the scientific case for climate change. And we admit that NO we are not climate scientists, NO we have not published research papers in ‘peer reviewed’ science journals. Of the three main contributors (all retired or semi retired) one is an engineer who still lectures in engineering and …
