US Democrats Supernut Formulates “Green New Deal” To Fix Climate And “Repair Historic Oppression”

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.

Brand New Tesla Model S Spontaneously Combusts And Spontaneously Comusts Again

It is well known that Tesla Model S Cars, like Spinal Tap drummers, have a tendency to spontaneously combust. There have been several instances in the past two years, usually occurring after an accident or collision, not always immediately after but several days after. This led one safety expert in California to suggest there is a serious problem with the battery pack.

Tesla Cars deny there is a problem of course, well they would, wouldn’t they? In a recent court hearing over one case the company bizarrely claimed that one of it’s cars had burst into flames after somebody fired a bullet into the battery pack.

But now there has been a case of spontaneous Tesla Model S combustion (perhaps that’s why they call it the model S,) that does not involve a bullet, or a collision

A Tesla Model S that was not being worked on or driven  spontaneously combusted on Tuesday, catching fire in a tyre shop parking lot near the Bay Area, San Francisco according to NBC news. After the fire department arrived and the Tesla was subsequently towed away, it then reignited a second time at a tow yard.

The owner of the tyre shop said after the vehicle arrived on a tow truck, they noticed a “hissing sound” coming from it shortly before the vehicle went up in flames. The batteries in the vehicle continued to burn long after the flames were put out, the fire department concluded, and there was no indication that anyone was shooting at the batteries this time.

“It’s a brand new car, I just got it three months ago, there’s only 1200 miles on the car,” the owner told NBC Bay Area. The report stated that the owner will likely not replace the car with another Tesla due to “a lack of customer service” and “safety concerns”.

“No more Teslas,” the driver told NBC. “If this car was in the house and we were on vacation, and this thing caught fire in the garage, the whole house could go under!”

Food Fascists Demand Tobacco-Style Sin Taxes to Slash Meat Consumption

https://grist.files.wordpress.com/

Sky-high sin taxes on meat have been branded “inevitable” in Britain after a study asserted that the move could “save hundreds of thousands of lives” as well as helping stop climate change.

Researchers at Oxford University urged ministers to consider the move, claiming that hiking the cost of red meat by 14 per cent and processed meat by 79 per cent could prevent 5,920 deaths in Britain a year and save the NHS an annual sum of £750 million on healthcare costs.

Lead researcher Dr Marco Springmann, from the Nuffield Department of Population Health at Oxford University, said: “The consumption of red and processed meat exceeds recommended levels in most high and middle-income countries.

“This is having significant impacts not only on personal health, but also on healthcare systems, which are taxpayer-funded in many countries, and on the economy, which is losing its labour force due to ill health and care for family members who fall ill.

I hope that governments will consider introducing a health levy on red and processed meat as part of a range of measures to make healthy and sustainable decision-making easier for consumers.

“A health levy on red and processed meat would not limit choices, but send a powerful signal to consumers and take pressure off our healthcare systems.”

The Institute for Economic Affairs’ Chris Snowdon described the numbers in the study as “unfeasibly large”, stating that even if one takes the “outlandish” health claims to be true, the authors appear to have made “a classic mistake” of so-called public health research when calculating potential healthcare savings.

It also claims that processed and red meat kill 2.4 million people a year. This is nonsense, the figures, obviously plucked out of thin air, are seventeen times higher than the previous estimate (from last September).

Pointing out that “people who live to a ripe old age tend to cost a lot of money”, he explained in the Spectator that studies of this kind often make the assumption that “someone who avoids a diet-related disease will avoid every other disease and never trouble the health service again”. In fact it is impossible to prove an 80 year old meat eather with bowel cancer developed the disease as a result of eating meat. by the same criterium it is also impossible to prove that a healthy 90 year old vegetarian would not have stayed healthy so long had they eaten a steak or a chop occasionally.

“An unholy alliance of ‘public health’ campaigners, environmentalists and vegetarians will be working night and day to make this happen. Taxing food is the next battleground for the nanny state,” the Institute of Economic Affairs’ (IEA) director of lifestyle economics told The Sun newspaper.

 

The Dark Story Behind Global Warming aka Climate Change

By F. William Engdahl via Information Clearing House

The recent UN global warming conference under auspices of the deceptively-named International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded its meeting in South Korea discussing how to drastically limit global temperature rise. Mainstream media is predictably retailing various panic scenarios “predicting” catastrophic climate change because of man-made emissions of Greenhouse Gases, especially CO2, if drastic changes in our lifestyle are not urgently undertaken. There is only one thing wrong with all that. It’s based on fake science and corrupted climate modelers who have reaped by now billions in government research grants to buttress the arguments for radical change in our standard of living. We might casually ask “What’s the point?” The answer is not positive.

The South Korea meeting of the UN IPCC discussed measures needed, according to their computer models, to limit global temperature rise to below  1.5 Centigrade above levels of the pre-industrial era. One of the panel members and authors of the latest IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, Drew Shindell, at Duke University told the press that to meet the arbitrary 1.5 degree target will require world CO2 emissions to drop by a staggering 40% in the next 12 years. The IPCC calls for a draconian “zero net emissions” of CO2 by 2050. That would mean complete ban on gas or diesel engines for cars and trucks, no coal power plants, transformation of the world agriculture to burning food as biofuels. Shindell modestly put it, “These are huge, huge shifts.”

The new IPCC report, SR15, declares that global warming of 1.5°C will “probably“ bring species extinction, weather extremes and risks to food supply, health and economic growth. To avoid this the IPCC estimates required energy investment alone will be $2.4 trillion per year. Could this explain the interest of major global banks, especially in the City of London in pushing the Global Warming card?

Scaremongering IPCC Pushes Climate Hysteria with New Doomsday Report

Those discredited jokers, gropers and fake scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have surpassed themselves in the idiocy stakes in their latest Summary for Policy Makers. It is just a rehashed version of the farrago of adjusted data, dubious science, wailing and gnashing of teeth and eco-fascistic edicts on how we shall all live our lives in the future.

Here are a few of the main points:

Sea levels are rising. (As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries),

The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.

Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster,(no mention of how many of the thirty – something thousand delegates to the Paris climate conference turned up in private jets, oh no, us ordinary punters must change OUR lifestyles but the elites must live ever more lavishly, in order that they may be at their best when dealing with the onerous tasks involved in saving the planet.)

$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
, (even though these ‘sustainable’ sources have failed to prove they can supply the baseload required by modern, developed societies.)

Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms

Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase

You can read a Summary For Policy Makers of the IPCC report, published by the IPCC. If you’re a sucker for punishment just click the link. It covers all the points I’ve referred to but the prose style doesn’t make for good bedtime reading.

Using the comparision to a religious cult favoured by many of us Warmageddon sceptics, Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation describes the latest science fantasy publication as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more. He’s right. None of the predictions made by the Warmageddonist lobby over the past twenty years have been correct. Snow is not a folk memory, the arctic sea ice has not disappeared, the predicted 50 million refugees displaced by rising sea levels must be wearing Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility.

The reason people no longer believe the “last chance to save the planet” bollocks is first, we’ve heard it many times before, second, it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and free speech (which governments, aided and abetted by Google and Facebook, want to abolish,) we have access to all the scientific research projects conducted by diligent researchers according to the scientific method (i.e. no adjusted data,) and these reports make sense.

Take that tired old line on vector borne diseases. Anyone who has followed this saga or researched it thoroughly knows that this claim was debunked years ago by an expert epidemiologist, Paul Reiter.

As far back as 1998, just as the hysteria was starting to rev up, Reiter delivered a lecture on this subject to the Cooler Heads Coalition:

All attempts to link specific recent outbreaks to climate change cannot survive a confrontation with the facts. In all cases, local conditions (such as the banning of DDT, land use changes, or foreign contact) account for expansions of disease vectors or increases in infection rates.

Yet here is the IPCC, trotting out the same old scare stories as if no one’s paying attention.

What is new, or new-ish, is the IPCC’s overdue acknowledgement that the Paris Climate Accord was a failure. What would be really meaningful is if the IPCC would admit that its attempts to push the globalist agenda by creating a big scary monster have failed.

Meanwhile an independent (and not nearly so enthusiastically reported by mainstream media) audit of the key temperature dataset used by climate models has exposed more than 70 problems with the data which render it “unfit for global studies.” It’s worth reminding warmageddonists, who tend to have short memories, that all the projections and predictions made by “climate scientists” to date have been based on output from ;mathematical models’ of the climate rather than empirical observation.

The problems identified in the data include zero degree temperatures in the Caribbean, 82 degree C temperatures in Colombia and ship-based recordings taken 100km inland.

The audit concluded that the people running these mathematical models are deliberately exaggerating temperatures to support a theory of global warming utilizing global averages that point to very different outcomes to what is being forecast after the data has been adjusted.

The investigation has discovered (not really, all thinking people have known for years what was going on,) that “that climate models have been tweaked to produce results favourable to supporters of global government, and scientists double down on that cheat by feeding the computers with incorrect (aka ‘adjusted’) data, which renders their projections of future temperatures and the influence of human activity on climate meaningless. It also points out The Paris Climate Agreement’s adoption of 1850-1899 averages as “indicative” of pre-industrial temperatures is “fatally flawed.” The entire Paris Climate Agreement has an agenda to eliminate effectively the advancement of society and attempt to reset the clock to the pre-Industrial Revolution. This entire theory that before the Industrial Revolution, our planet’s atmosphere was somehow pristine and uncontaminated by human-made pollutants has been also proven to be completely bogus with archaeological finds showing human activity was affecting the environment 2000 years ago.

An indication that rather than simple scientific concern for the environment, there is a rather unpleasant and authoritarian political agenda at work in the warmageddonist agenda is revealed in the IPCC reports recommendation that we should all eat less meat and propaganda should be employed to nudge everybody towards a vegetarian or vegan diet. Now there are plenty of conservative vegetarians, it is not just a left wing thing, but for the left everything is political thus vegetarianism cannot be a matter of individual choice, it has to be made a political issue.

According to a report in The Guardian:

Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet, according to the scientists behind the most comprehensive analysis to date of the damage farming does to the planet.

The new research shows that without meat and dairy consumption, global farmland use could be reduced by more than 75% – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined – and still feed the world. Loss of wild areas to agriculture is the leading cause of the current mass extinction of wildlife.

The new analysis shows that while meat and dairy provide just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. Other recent research shows 86% of all land mammals are now livestock or humans. The scientists also found that even the very lowest impact meat and dairy products still cause much more environmental harm than the least sustainable vegetable and cereal growing.

Like all the statistics quoted by the Warmageddonist cult, figures cited in The Guardian’s report should be taken with a pinch of salt. 86% of all land mannals???? Does anybody know how many rats populate the sewers and dumps of the world’s cities, or how many monkeys there are in the Brazilian rain forest? Does anybody really know who many squirrels live in the vast woodlands of northern USA and Canada. Can anybody honestly say they have counted all the vast herds of Caribou in northern Scandinavia and Siberia? The probems of arriving at a reasonable estimate of how many small mammals inhabit the vast landscapes of Africa and Asia are insurmountable.

The new audit of climate data and scientific methods also argues that even the most simple basic quality checks have not been done on the HadCRUT4 dataset, which is managed by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. The audit exposed that estimates (guesses,) were made to cover uncertainties arising from thermometer accuracy, homogenization, sampling grid boxes with a finite number of measurements available, large-scale biases such as urbanization and estimation of regional averages with non-complete global measurement coverage.

Some have described this politicisation of climate science as a front in the elite’s war on the middle class: Remember the late Maurice Strong? In 1992 this Cultural Marxist activist and proponent of global government was the chair of the UN’s World Commission on Environmental Development (also among the world’s biggest crooks – remember the “food for oil” scam?) said that the middle class lifestyle was unsustainable, and then went on to list a whole series of items that were not sustainable including eating meat…watch this video as 13 mins 45 seconds for the quote.

Strong’s career was quite amazing, from a lowly oil company bureaucrat from a poor background, he grabbed an opportunity to work for The United Nations and while there saw that the elites were planning for the destruction of democratic societies and a move to global governance by a central bureaucracy supported by academics.

in China, but still the power behind Obama and the liberal House and Senate of America. To start to understand this man and his influence read his statement below to a group of reporters.

“In order to save the planet, the group [GIM] decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about? This group of world leaders [GIM] forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse.”

Maurice Strong – regarding Generation Investment Management LLP

Like his close associate George Soros, Kyoto architect Strong, was one of the archtects of the Kyoto agreement, and the brains behind the global warming scare as a means to swing public opinion behind the Cultural Marxist plan for global government. He was also a member of the “Chicago Climate Exchange” an initiative to create a market for trading carbon credits designed to make its founders billions on climate change.

The audit report has exposed the dishonesty built into the climate change scare and the entire global government scheme. The climate treaties, accords and agreements, from Kyoto to Paris appear to be directed at the goal of making fake news the norm. Anomalies in IPCC data it has identified include at St Kitts in the Caribbean, the average temperature for December 1981 was zero degrees – unusual for the Caribbean to say the least, normally the average for that time of year is 26C. For three months in 1978, one weather station in Colombia reported an 82 degrees Celsius average – hotter than the hottest day on Earth. Can it be that these ‘scientists’ whom we are told we must believe because they are so very clever, do not know the difference between Celsius and Farenheit? Then in Romania, one September the average temperature was reported as minus 46°C, which has never happened as Romania is quite a long way from either the north or south pole. The published data revealed scientific survey ships have reported ocean temperatures from places up to 100km inland.

The paper also points out that the most serious flaw identified was the shortage of data. For the first two years, from 1850 onwards, the only land-based reporting station in the Southern Hemisphere was in Indonesia, then a Dutch colony. There were ship observations at the time but Australian records were not started until 1855 in Melbourne, behind Auckland, New Zealand, which started in 1853. The data used to calculate ‘pre – Industrial Revolution temperatures for these regions appears to have been completely fabricated.

According to records of the HadCRUT4 dataset on which calculations are based, it was almost 1950 before data from even half of the Southern Hemisphere was available. Yet they claim global warming has taken hold for 100 years prior to that. Tthe Paris Climate Agreement takes the HadCRUT4 average from 1850 to 1899 as an “indicative” temperature or pre-Industrial Revolution. There is absolutely no possible way the data set being used to support all this Global Warming is even valid for any forecast. And in fact the Industial Reovlution is generally accepted to have begun a hundred years earlier.

The program is operated by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) could be viewed as an attempt to develop an entirely new class of bioweapons that would prompt other nations to seek similar weapons, they cautioned.

New Report On Middle Aged Drinkers Shows Scientists Are Idiots

A new study by ‘scientists’ in Australia claims a warning for middle aged people that they risk embarrassing themselves through drinking is more effective at improving behaviour than highlighting the health implications.

The report claims that adults aged between 30 and 65 have only “minor” concerns about the health effects of alcohol. The truth of this can easily be observed as, in spite of frequent scaremongering campaigns by governments and their tame ‘scientists’ a huge number of people who drink more than the ridiculous recommended limits advised by governments are living happily and healthily to a ripe old age.

The study, carried out in Australia, not a country noted for abstemiousness,  by the University of Adelaide, analysed interviewee’s responses about alcohol consumption from 13 previous papers, finding that for the middle-aged people without an existing drinking problem, the “principal barrier to reductions in alcohol consumption is not the lack of information about health risks”.

The report was vague about what the principal barrier to reducing alcohol consumption actually is, probably because it relates to people having completely lost confidence in ‘scientists’ and never having trusted government anyway. Thus the punters do not have much dificulty working out that all these scare stories floated by ‘scientists’ are nothing more than a scam to justify imposing the kind of punitive tax levels on alcohol as have failed to stop about 30% of people from smoking.

People simply do not like government pokenoses telling them what they can and can’t do. Government meddling in private lives only ever results in an enormous, catastrophic clusterfuck.

The Austrialian researchers suggest, (extremely idiotically, even by the idiotic standards of ‘scientists’) public health campaigns to reduce alcohol consumption could be more effective if they focus on the risk of behaving inappropriately after drinking too much, although, predictably, no definite examples of what kind of inappropriate behaviour they mean. An enthusiastic rendition of My Way at a Karaoke night maybe?

Acceptable drinking was classed as that which “was appropriate to one’s age or stage of life”, allowed the group to still meet their responsibilities and adhered to social norms, they found. Again that is just sanctimonious drivel. What responsibilities? What social norms? Science is supposed to be about precision, not about vague platitudes.

The report stated: “The drinkers in these studies were aware of public health messages, but drew upon alternative narratives to re-frame their behaviours in ways that minimised or dismissed personal risk. Health was either described as a minor concern or not considered at all.”

Lead researcher Emma Muhlack said: “It is surprising that health does not strongly factor in the way that this group thinks about their drinking. Well Emma, let Boggart Blog help you out, human beings are individual. Pseudo – science like your report seems to start from the assumption that we are all stereotypes who have no free will and are quite incapable of making our own decisions.

“We knew very little about the decision-making processes that go into the alcohol consumption of middle-age drinkers. The results from this review help us to better understand how drinking alcohol fits into their everyday lives and which factors may need to be taken into consideration when attempting to reduce alcohol consumption in this group.” Ms. Muhlack added.

The fact is that just as people have their own limits on how drunk they want to get, they have their own standards on behaviour, so a public health campaign, no matter what kind of behaviours it targets, is unlikely to engage the attention of more than a very small percentage of the target group. It has been known for example, since I was studying sociology fifty years ago, that middle aged people are less susceptible to peer pressure than they young.

The researchers suggest that campaigns which focus on failing to meet responsibilities because of alcohol and the possible loss of respect may be more effective than health messages.

Perhaps the researchers are thinking of a follow up report suggesting using targeted ads on social media. But again, middle aged people are less likely to be heavily addicted to social media than millennials, and also social media advertising is notoriously ineffective.

Now back bench conservatives have forced him into a change of mind.
