Green Hysteria Is Destroying German Economy

This blog has reported many times that the mighty German economy is heading into trouble because it’s political elite, led by wannabe saint Angela Merkel is more concerned with climate change scaremongering and importing millions of illiterate, unemployable their world migrants in an orgy of virtue signalling.

The bigest single industrial sector in the German economy, automobile manufacturing, currently acts as the real engine driving the country’s economy, but as taxes rse to support a burgeoning welfare bill, and sales plummet due to the pomotion of expensive, inefficient and, it has to be said, incredibly dirty electric cars, it looks as if the situation may be in fora dramatic change for the worse according to new report from economists Matthias Weik and Marc Friedrich in a commentary at the online news portal of the (German Midsize Companies News – DMN).

This blog would not normally advise readers to take not of economists’ speculations but in this case their conclusions coincide with the opinions of a number of hard headed businessmen who see trouble ahead for the economic powerhouse that propos up the European Union.

Weik and Friedrich base their view of the economic direction of the German economy and how it is seriously threatened by the country’s obsession with climate considerations based on very dodgy science, and an irrational policy of opening the borders to all arrivals from third world nations, and how policymakers are neglecting key industries on evidence that Germany’s ruling elite are unduly influenced by certain left leaning academics whose thinking is heavily influenced by the so called Cultural Marxism of The Frankfurt Schoool of twentieth century econopmics.

Weik and Friedrich say German politicians have been naive and too easily influenced by noisy minorities and attention seeking scientists and  in their panic to save the planet from an alleged climate meltdown have, in the process of ruined the German economy.

“Everybody is talking about the climate, yet no one is talking about the economic climate,” Weik and Friedrich say. in common with many investment managers and industrialists, the two economists warn of a coming recession, one that will be “hard as nails” as the green activist and Social Justice Warrior onslaught on western, and particularly German industry intensifies.

According to the Weik and Friedrich, already “the seasonally adjusted and real order intake of German industry fell by 8.6 percent compared to the same month last year! For the tenth month in a row, it is going down!” So while the government and the Bundesbank juggle figures frantically, in fact Germany is already technically in recession. (The usual measure for growth / recession is GDP but when a government pumps €billions into the economy so it can hand out massive benefits to immigrants, which they spend in the economy, the resulting ‘growth’ is illusory.

“Companies such as Deutsche Bank, BASF, Bayer, Siemens, Thyssen, Ford have begun “massive job cuts or announced plans to do so in anticipation of the hard times ahead.”

The authors say that words, such as “unemployment” and “layoffs”, will soon be dominating the media and that “no one will talk about the shortage of skilled workers anymore, let alone climate change”.

The consequences of a major recession in manufacturing would send economic shock waves not through Germany but also throughout the European Union (EU) which massively relies on revenues generated by the German automotive industry, as has been well documented for years.

Weik and Friedrich write that Germany’s green and globalist policies have “negligently gambled away” prosperity and that the “coming climate change in the economy will nip all irrelevant sham debates in the bud.”

They add: “The heated discussions and hysteria are a sign of the famous late Roman decadence and a warning sign of the crash. For many who demonstrate today, there will be no jobs in Germany tomorrow.”

Eco Nuts Are Back, Threatening To Shut Down Heathrow

 

All planes grounded after

Planes at Heathrow grounded by a previous (unconnected) drone incident (Picture: http://www.lindaikejisblog.com/ )

Yesterday’s story featured a bunch of eco – hypocrites, rock band The 1975, whose latest album features eco – wunderkind Greta Thunberg reading a plea for us all to adopy zero emissions lifestyles to save the planet and who will shortly be jetting off on a world tour to promote their message (and album sales of course.)

Today we report on the eco – psychopathes of Extinction Rebellion and their insane plan to shut down Heathrow Airport by flying drones into the approach and take off flight paths of aircraft using the world’s busiest airport.

The eco-warriors have grown more ambitious but no more intelligent since their attempt to shut down London by blocking main roads in and out of the city centre anatagonised people rather than gaining support for their movement.
This time they’re calling themselves ‘drone activists’ and are planning to ground flights at Britain’s Heathrow throughout September.A drone activist group calling itself Heathrow Pause and described as a splinter of environmental group Extinction Rebellion has warned that on September 13 its members will be flying drones around Heathrow, forcing the grounding of flights as part of a protest at the planned expansion of the airport.

These protests cause a dilemma for many people, because while almost everyone wants to save the world, many of us believe the problems are not carbon dioxide emissions but population explosion and the toxic shite dumped in the environment by manufacturing processes and the kind of careless consumption promoted by governments, economists and scientists for decades as a means to maintain ‘growth.’

So apart from barking up the wrong tree on cause, the eco – nutters seem to target the wrong people with their brainless stunts. People have to travel on business and move goods around the globe, people want to go on holiday, and many actually want to come back from holiday before theor money runs out.

And who wouldn’t choose a week on the beach over protecting some small, unknown glacier in Iceland.

Perhaps activists need to take this into account when planning their public relations campaign. At the moment the environmentalists seem to believe that they can annoy the public into changing their behaviour with a series of seriously. Last time I checked that was called bullying and was a favourite tactic of fascist and communist groups that deal in authoritarianism.

The extremists targeting Heathrow say a legal loophole will allow them to fly drones near the airport without breaking the law. They will be flying toy drones at head height within restricted airspace which they believe will force all air traffic to be stopped without violating air safety regulations.

Some members claim they have discussed the plans with police in advance. This could cause hard liners to question their commitment, as telling the authorities in advance where, when and how you intend to disrupt air traffic give the cops chance to round up the would be perpetrators, charge them with conspiracy and bang them up on remand.This news blog would wholly approve of such action. Anything that gets a bunch of crusties who stink of patchouli oil off te streets and out of our nostrils improves the environment.

This latest plan to force us to care about climate catastrophe tells us as much about the intelligence of eco warriors as their belief that pissing off people who hope to persuade to share your point of view is  not usually the best way to boost support for a cause.

The activists justify their protest action by insisting they are raising awareness of climate change, but is there anyone in Britain for example that is not aware of the scaremongering or prophecies of doom over climate change that have been thrown about for the past twenty years? Or for that matter that all the prophecies of disaster have failed to deliver, the polar ice caps still exists, the Himalayan glaciers still exist, polar bear numbers are increasing, sea levels are rising no faster than they have since the end of the last ice age and we still get snow in winter, despite all the warning of the scaremongers. And most people in Britain, apart from crusties, university brainwashed liberals and Jeremy Corbyn supporters are aware of that.

Rock Band The Flying Hypocrites Embark On World Tour

Climate activist GretaThurnberg and fairy tale character Pippi Longstocking – Secret twins)

As Eco – activism wunderkind and Pippi Longstocking lookalike Greta Thurnberg swans about in New York after crossing the Atlantic in a zero emissions superyacht made of carbon fibre (the manufacturing of which produces far more than your or my car or even my brothers V8 Range Rover will throughout their useful lifetimes,) rock band The 1975 have set off on a world tour to publicise a new album which features for one of its tracks the aforementioned Froken Thurnberg reading one of her sanctimonious but scientifically defunct essays on climate change.

For a bunch of British boys ‘the 1975’ seem to lack the usual appreciation of irony as, according to an open letter written to the lads by Conservative MP David T C Davis, in their zeal to make the world understand how important it is that we all heed the Swedish Pippi Thurnberg’s message about the urgency of adopting zero emissions lifestyles, they will be jetting off with their road crew and all their heavy equipment to gigs in South Korea, Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and a series of venues across the USA.

And they will not be travelling anywhere by camel train, ox cart, horse drawn barge or even £4million carbon fibre superyacht, these Extinction Rebellion supporting zealots will be flying round the world by Jumbo Jet to teach us all about how irresponsible and selfish we are in flying off on business or pleasure trips by jet aircraft.

Maybe like Pippi Longstocking Thurnberg, The 1975 are far more enlightened than we know, and understand the extent of the climate catastrophe far better than a mature adult can ever hope to. Or maybe they are just a bunch of wankers who are so far up their own arses they have completely lost their self awareness.

Macron’s Amazon fires antics are just a globalist effort to oust Bolsonaro

International political opponents of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and their media allies are cynically exploiting and exaggerating the impact of the fires in the Amazon to demonize the ‘Trump of the Tropics’.

The plight of the Brazilian rainforest hasn’t dominated the international headlines to the current extent since the late 1980s heyday of Sting earnestly pleading for donations while standing alongside impassive tribal chiefs.

Leonardo Di Caprio, Madonna, and Cristiano Ronaldo have taken to social media to sound alarm about the burning “lungs of the world” that produce “20 percent of Earth’s oxygen.”

Emmanuel Macron not only stated the same claims in his own tweet, but made the “international crisis” of the Amazon fires the last-minute headline theme of his home G7 summit, urging the world to #ActFortheAmazon, as the leaders of the top Western powers pooled together $40 million in (rejected) donations.

Surely, something extraordinary is happening in Brazil?

Well, not really. First let’s clear out the straightforward myths. The Amazon does not produce 20 percent of the world’s oxygen, nor is it the “lungs” of anything, as it consumes as much of it as it creates. In the internet era it should be easy to debunk this within three minutes, without requiring special statements from NASA scientists.

Nor does it help to post decades-old pictures with fires from various places across the globe, which is something every person namechecked above has done. One assumes, particularly because of their boss’ stated dislike of ‘fake news’, that there must be someone on the French president’s staff who is able to perform a Google image search.

International opposition to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, dubbed “the Brazilian Trump” have spun a fake news story about the fires that according to mainstream media and establishment politicians are destroying the Amazonian rain forest. In fact the globalist carel are cynically exploiting and exaggerating the impact of the fires, started deliberately for completely legitimate reasons, in the Amazon to demonize the ‘Trump of the Tropics’.

The plight of the Brazilian rainforest hasn’t excited the showbusiness wankerati to the current extent since the late 1980s when former schoolteacher and rock star turned wannabe messiah Sting took to the airwaves earnestly pleading for donations to preserve the way of life of rain forest natives while standing alongside impassive tribal chiefs with unsold Police CDs inserted in their lower lips.

In response to the current crisis, Leonardo Di Caprio who flies round the world in his private jet to warn people of the dangers of burning carbon dioxide producing fuels, Madonna who still performs high kicking dance routines while wearing scanty outfits  in front of sad old men who fantasise about golden showers, and Cristiano Ronaldo an ageing football star and all round cunt, have taken to social media to sound the alarm about the burning “lungs of the world” that produce “20 percent of Earth’s oxygen.”

Emmanuel Macron not only stated the same claims in a speech at last weekend’s G7 summit, but made the “international crisis” of the Amazon fires the screaming headlinefor the world;s Suday papers, urging the world to #ActFortheAmazon, as the leaders of the top Western powers pledged $40 million in (rejected) donations (which Bolsonaro turned down, telling Macron, “You couldn’t even save Notre Dame.

Surely, something extraordinary is happening in Brazil isn’t it? you might well ask.

Well, no. It’s all bollocks. First let’s clear out the statistical lies. The Amazon does not produce 20 percent of the world’s oxygen, nor is it the “lungs” of anything, as it consumes as much oxygen as it creates. In the internet era it should be easy to debunk this within three minutes, without requiring special statements from NASA scientists. It’s basic fucking biology FFS, look up photosynthesis.

As for the propaganda pictires of raging fires lit by farmers burning crop stubble on land that might, just might, have once been rain forest but is noe under cultivation,, apart from many being decades old and showing far from raging fires  or from sites hundreds of miles from the Amazon and some not even on  the same continent, which is something every attention seeking has – been namechecked above has done. One assumes, particularly because of their boss’ stated dislike of ‘fake news’, that there must be someone on the French president’s staff who is able to perform a Google image search.

The whole Amazonian wildfires scare story is fake news , partly to whip up hysteria about climate change because nobody except university brainwashed wankers believes the Caron Dioxide fossil fuels bullshit any more, and partly to pave the way for a regime change coup in Brazil where President Bolsanaro is guilty of putting the interests of brazil’s people ahead of the interests of global corporations.

Finnish Climate Study Finds No Evidence That Humans Caused Climate Change

A team of Finnish climate researchers led by J. Kauppinen and P. Malmi of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Turku, have have published results of a project which found that the likely human contribution to a rise of 0.1°C in global temperatures over the past 100 years century is just 0.01°C. This is in direct contradiction of  the catastrophic global warming narrative built by research grant phishing Warmageddonist scientists and the bureaucrats of the  UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The UN has of course been making political use of Warmageddonist doom prophecies to advance its Agenda 21 and Agenda 30, both of which look like plans for global governance when subjected to critical scrutiny.

Kauppinen and Malmi write in their research analysis paper, dated June 29, 2019, that their research proves that GCM-models used in IPCC report AR5 fail to calculate the instances of the low cloud cover changes on the global temperature. They claim this is why the models used to make the case for catastrophic warming give a minimal natural temperature change, assigning a substantial change to the contribution of the greenhouse gases in the observed temperature.

This is the reason why IPCC has to use a considerable adjustment of data to compensate for the too small natural component. Further, scientists drafting reports for the IPCC have to leave out the strong negative feedback due to the clouds. Also, this paper proves that the changes in the low cloud cover fraction practically control the global temperature.

Kauppinen and Malmi explain:
“The climate sensitivity has an extremely large uncertainty in the scientific literature. The smallest values estimated are very close to zero while the highest ones are even 9 degrees Celsius for a doubling of CO2. The majority of the papers are using theoretical general circulation models (GCM) for the estimation. These models give very big sensitivities with a very large uncertainty range. Typically sensitivity values are between 2-5 degrees.

IPCC uses these papers to estimate global temperature anomalies and climate sensitivity.

However, there are a lot of papers, where sensitivities lower than one degree are estimated without using GCM.

The basic problem is still missing experimental evidence of the climate sensitivity.

Low cloud cover controls practically the global temperature. It turns out that the changes in the relative humidity and in the low cloud cover depend on each other. So, instead of low cloud cover, we can use the changes in the relative humidity in order to derive the natural temperature anomaly. According to the observations, a 1 % increase of the relative humidity decreases the temperature by 0:15°C.

The IPCC climate sensitivity is about one order of magnitude too high because a strong negative feedback of the clouds is missing in climate models. If we pay attention to the fact that only a small part of the increased CO2 concentration is anthropogenic, we have to recognize that the anthropogenic climate change does not exist in practice. The major part of the extra CO2 is emitted from oceans, according to Henry`s law. The low clouds practically control the global average temperature.

the last hundred years, the temperature is increased by about 0:1°C because of CO2 therefore:

The human contribution was about 0:01°C.”

The J. Kauppinen and P. Malmi report is the latest of many reports from research projects which provide evidence to challenge the scare tactics pushed by the purveyors of the climate change hypothesis and politicians seeking to use the climate change scare to erode our rights and liberties.

The facts show the climate models that have been proven wrong at every step, the Earth’s climate is much more complicated than the algorithms that can be programmed into a computer application could deal with, simply because there are so many unquantifiable effects acting on the climate. The CAGWARTs (Carbon- driven Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Trolls still haven’t raised teir heads from their computer screens long enough to work out why the satellite temperature data says, Earth hasn’t warmed in twenty years , why there is still snow in winter, cool spells in summer, why Polar Bear numbers are incresing and where the 50 million people who were due to be displaced by rising sea levels by 2015 have disappeared to, (clue: they’re not hiding under harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility.)

Macron Threatens G20 On Climate Then Backs Off

France’s boy president and current climate scaremonger in chief and leading European federalist Emmanuel Macron arrived in Japan for the G-20 summit full of sound and fury, which like the stuff of Macbeth’s soliloquy in Shakespeare’s play turned out to signify nothing. Having started with a threat that France would refuse to sign the concluding statement unless it included a renewed committment to actions agreed in The Paris Accord of 2015 according to Bloomberg.

French boy president Emmanuel Macron and Prime minister Abe of Japan: (picture: Reuters)

If we are not able to get around a table and defend the climate, then France won’t go along with it,” he said. “It’s that simple.”

Then, probably because is aides were reminding him in stage whispers that The Paris Accord did not committ some of the world’s biggest carbon dioxide emitters, including China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Mexico and Turkey to do anything on the grounds that they are ‘developing nations, the boy president began to backpedal. One of his entourage suggested that it was impossible to discuss hypotheticals, and another said that the threat wasn’t a threat – rather, Macron was simply indicating France’s priorities.

European Council President Donald Tusk took issuer with Macron’s comments, saying during the Thursday press session that G20 leaders should instead help Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe draft a positive final declaration rather than threatening to boycott it.

Hours later, Macron rewound his position during a press conference with Abe, saying that he had only meant if France’s climate initiatives weren’t adopted, “We’ll have met for nothing.”

By Friday, Macron had backpedalled even more, saying only that climate would be a major issue at the G-20, a statement which did not contain a threat of any kind.

As Bloomberg notes, “Climate and bio-diversity have always been major issues for Macron — partly because the landmark 2015 Paris Accord was signed in the French capital while the former Goldman Sachs investment banker was a minister in Francopis Hollande’s socialist government, and we should not forget the even more politically significant fact that the French Green Party made major advances in May’s European parliamentary elections,, to become serious contenders alongside marine Le Pen’s EurosceptIc Rassemblement National to challenge Macron’s globalist, Europhile, neoliberal party. Macron has calculated that voters favoring tougher action on the environment could be an important source of support as he fights to stave off Le Pen’s challenge.

Scientists Accidentally Prove Global Warming Is A Hoax

Looks like scientists just admitted that the claims by global warming religionists is just a bunch of B.S. … but they probably didn’t realize that’s what they did.

A new report on climate change by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research made the accidental admission that the earth has seen these same levels of CO2 in the past and was not “destroyed” by it all.

As reported by the extremist, left-wing site Think Progress:

Wait…. so let’s get this straight: the last time we have CO2 levels like this was “three million years ago”?

When man was not around to cause it?

…And…and the earth is still here for us to talk about it?

Didn’t they just admit that even if man is contributing to some rise in temperatures, natural causes also contribute AND the earth won’t be destroyed by it?

Not in 12 years… OR in three million!
