Of course: U.N. finds way to tie soccer team being trapped in a cave in Thailand to climate change

They’re SO predictable.

They say that to a hammer everything looks like a nail, and the same is true when it comes to United Nations bureaucrats and “climate change.” Here’s the latest evidence:

And there’s this from the U.N. weather alarmist in question:

“It is the start of the monsoon season in Thailand,” she said. “I’ve been looking at the weather forecast there for Chiang-Rai, for the region, every day for the past week. Every day it has consistently shown the risk of thundershowers; now they haven’t, fortunately, materialized.”

So the thundershowers she forecast didn’t materialize. She says that’s a result of man-made climate change, but might I offer another radical explanation: She got the forecast wrong. It’s a crazy suggestion, I know.

They’s SO predictable.

Climate Change Alarmism on Parade — a two-act play, starring Bette Midler

I’ve always said that no matter what happens outside, climate change alarmists will link it to man-made climate change. One of the left’s biggest panic-button pushers about global warming is Bette Midler, who proved that point quite nicely.

First up we have this from yesterday:

June/July heat = Effect of climate change that must be reversed before we all die in a man-made eco crock pot. Got that?

Rewind the tape to the exact same date, except five years earlier in 2013:

June/July cole = Effect of climate change that must be reversed before we all die in a freezer of humanity’s making.

And yet liberals mock non-believers for not being able to grasp their “science.”

Notorious fuel terminator from Hollywood challenges Trump to get more ‘green’ on gas

If only we could tap Hollywood eco-hypocrisy as a clean energy source.

Arnold Schwarzenegger traveled all the way from California to Austria by bicycle, rowboat and kumquat-powered golf cart in order to sound the alarm about fossil fuels and ask President Trump to join the cause:

Arnold Schwarzenegger is urging President Donald Trump to join in efforts to promote green energy, saying he would have “a lot of victories.”

The former California governor spoke Tuesday at the R20 Austrian World Summit, an offshoot of a Schwarzenegger climate change initiative. Schwarzenegger has sparred with Trump, who last year announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

Schwarzenegger said: “Those of you who resist because you can’t imagine success without fossil fuels: we ask you to join us. Everyone. Also you, President Trump: Join us.”

Schwarzenegger’s certainly doing his part to get rid of fossil fuels — he’s burning as much of it as he possibly can so there’s none left for the rest of us:

I wonder if Ah-nuld got to the emergency summit on ending fossil fuels on this:

Arnold Schwarzenegger – Gulfstream III

The body builder turned actor, turned State Governor decieded in 2011, that he needed his own private jet.

For a cool $38 million he got himself a fabulous private jet.

The Gulfstream 3 has a capacity for 12 passengers and can go a range of 6,760 km

“Climate crisis” y’all!

If only we could tap Hollywood eco-hypocrisy as a clean energy source.

This week’s Albert Gore Jr. Award for Brazen Achievement in Eco-Hypocrisy goes to…

HAHAHA!

Here’s a shot & chaser so hot it could single-handedly trigger a global warming apocalypse all on its own.

Singer Katy Perry is very concerned about man-made climate change caused by fossil fuel emissions:

Fortunately Mother Nature suspends all natural law if an eco-hypocrite celeb has needs on the night of a gala or awards show:

What’s even more amazing is that they’re shocked more people don’t buy into their BS.

Elizabeth Warren’s Earth Day plea: Elect Dems so things like the BP spill won’t happen again (Um…)

Give it a rest, Dances With Identity Fraud.

Another Earth Day is upon us, which means a fresh round of sanctimonious “fossil fuels and capitalism are killing the planet” BS from rich liberals tweeting on iPhones from their private jets en route to one of their many mansions. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is among Dems all over the Earth Day lectures.

Check out how Dances with Identity Fraud is putting an Earth Day spin on the BP spill and trying to make it about Trump:

That’s not the touting of liberal regulatory prowess Warren thinks it is. When the BP spill happened, the Democrats already had full control of Congress AND the White House for nearly a year-and-a-half. But sure, let’s blame the guy who didn’t even take office until almost seven years later.

Also, the Animas River spill didn’t happen under Trump and the Republicans — it happened during the regulation-happy EPA under Obama. Take your “shilling for the regulatory genius of the bloated bureaucracy” shtick back to the teepee, Fauxcahontas.

On a related note, this cracked me up this morning: EPA chief Scott Pruitt’s Earth Day observance might be enough to hospitalize triggered liberals:

Pass the smelling salts, Leo!

*****

Just for fun, here’s a portion of something I wrote for Earth Day a few years ago. I think it still holds up:

Why am I so grumpy about Earth Day yet again this year? Because I don’t like being preached to about what I should be doing, especially when I already do it. For starters, in my house, we celebrate Earth Day every day, like no doubt many of you do. How so? We don’t leave lights on in rooms that nobody is in. We keep the thermostat fairly low (mostly because I’m usually too hot). We carpool when possible. We don’t waste gas. We pick up trash when we’re out walking. We volunteer to clean up the river walk, and we plant trees because we like trees — not because we’ve fooled ourselves into believing that planting trees is our noble contribution towards helping make Al Gore’s mansions carbon-neutral.

As such, I tend to get a little put off when being preached to by mega-hypocrites who swim in their own heated pools, travel in private jets, play sports under bright lights at night, heat cavernous homes they’re not even living in for months at a time, trash national monuments when celebrating politicians who are going to save the environment, and ride in limo caravans to speeches where they tell the rest of us how our pickup trucks, lawn mowers, hamburgers and 75-watt light bulbs are killing the planet. I mean… F**K. YOU.

Here’s another reason I won’t participate in Earth Day celebrations: I refuse to acknowledge, symbolically or otherwise, that electricity and fuel — and the generation and refining thereof — is the problem and that civilization can be saved by turning itself into North Korea for any length of time.

The harnessing and generation of electricity are among the greatest discoveries ever. It’s helped make the world safer and more sanitary. Electricity runs the equipment that is used to make the medicine that saves lives. It runs the cameras, televisions and computers that allow us to see evils that are being perpetuated around the world that we might not have otherwise known about. And fossil fuels, an energy source that there is currently no substitute for when it comes to powering the masses, will remain a necessity for the wellbeing of the human race no matter how many times progressives click their heels together three times while repeating “There’s no place like Solyndra… There’s no place like Solyndra…” We should be celebrating electricity and fuel instead of pretending it’s some sort of cancer that needs to be cut out of our lives. Notice I said “our” lives, meaning the “regular” people — the rich eco-hypocrites, who will of course still fly on private jets and own multiple mansions, have no intention of ever living by their own proposed rules.

I’ll say this though: The co-founder of Earth Day wasn’t a hypocrite, at least when it comes to composting.

Of course: NY Times charters private jet around the world to sound alarm about devastating effects of fossil fuel emissions

You can’t make this s**t up!

The New York Times is making a personal contribution to Al Gore’s cause by finding reasons for alarmism wherever they may exist (or not):

Among the alarms being sounded by New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristoff is, of course, the ravages of man-made “climate change”:

I came to Easter Island while leading a tour for The New York Times Company, and those of us in the group were staggered by the statues — but also by the reminder of the risks when a people damages the environment that sustains it.

That brings us to climate change, to the chemical processes we are now triggering whose outcomes we can’t fully predict. The consequences may be a transformed planet with rising waters and hotter weather, dying coral reefs and more acidic oceans. We fear for the ocean food chain and worry about feedback loops that will irreversibly accelerate this process, yet still we act like Easter Islanders hacking down their trees.

OK, that was all just a buildup to the “you can’t make this sh*t up” part of the post. Here’s why the Times is able to sound those climate change alarms all around the world this year:

Helios, ‘science’ denier! Al Gore’s got a new scapegoat if his predicted global warming apocalypse fails to materialize

Like clockwork, the beginning of a new year has brought with a fresh batch of “last year was the hottest year on record” claims. However, if the doom and gloom “science” crowd’s temperature rise predictions fail to occur, they won’t say they were wrong, but rather blame the sun for getting cooler:

Will the coming years mean human extinction from overheating, or freezing to death? Doesn’t look like the “science” is settled:

A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think “what’s the big deal,” but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th century when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the “Maunder Minimum”.

Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team studied the past event and concluded that we are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a “grand minimum” — a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

According to the study, titled Ultraviolet Flux Decrease Under a Grand Minimum from IUE Short-wavelength Observation of Solar Analogs and published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, this grand minimum will be 7 percent cooler than such periods from the past.

Scientists also said that the Sun might have another cooling period in a decade.

Guess we better fire up some more engines and burn some tires in order to speed up the rate of global warming so we don’t all freeze to death! Though Al Gore’s reaction will be something like “My warming predictions were spot-on, it’s just that the sun cooled off and ruined it.” Gore will then accuse Helios of being a “science denier.”

You might recall that another excuse for why the predicted sea rise hasn’t yet engulfed coastal areas isn’t that the melting ice caps aren’t raising water levels, but rather the sea floor is sinking. I shit you not.

They’ve certainly got all the bases covered.

Obama leads climate change army pretending they’re fighting back at ISIS by not canceling a f***ing meeting

Islamic terrorists have killed hundreds in recent weeks and their spread has sparked worldwide travel warnings. With that in mind, here’s a direct quote from the President of the United States about the announcement that a conference on climate change in Paris will not be postponed: “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be.”

Obama actually said that:

Yep, terrorists are shuddering in fear at climate change alarmists’ refusal to cancel a conference where ISIS’ (and others) atrocities will be blamed on fossil fuel emissions.

I can only imagine what would have been said if Winston Churchill, after the first London Blitz, responded “the best rebuke to this is to not cancel the Art Fair, am I right!?

Unless something changes quick we really are screwed beyond recovery.

Bill Nye’s argument for abortion is as stupid as his arguments for everything else

Bill Nye the “fake science guy” is a world class dipshit, and the libs love it!

That’s what passes for “logic” on the Left. Fortunately, people with functional brains have dismantled Nye’s “debunking” of pro-life positions:

Nye’s central argument is that human embryos should not be protected by law, because many of them perish from natural causes before they implant in the womb. Based on this, he claims that if you think life begins at fertilization and is worthy of protection:

Then whom are you going to sue? Whom are you going to imprison? Every woman who’s had a fertilized egg pass through her? Every guy who’s sperm has fertilized an egg and then it didn’t become a human? Have all these people failed you?

That statement is irrelevant to the issue of abortion, just as the statement that “all people eventually die” is irrelevant to the issue of murder. Both of these issues are about people actively ending the lives of others, not nature taking its course.

National Review also did a good job of setting Nye’s straw man on fire.

Keep in mind that’s the guy the White House trots out to support their climate change “science.” But his “argument” will make total sense to the people who believe there’s such a thing as free health care and college, and that’s all that matters to the Left.

What a surprise: Fighting ‘climate change’ is now over a $1.5 trillion racket and July was the hottest month ever

You know, if we had an honest and inquisitive media, it’s possible that some intrepid reporter might want to know if “data” like this…

…could possibly be influenced by numbers like this:

Press headlines never say “July 2014 was the hottest month ever, say scientists whose grant money hinges on hottest months ever.” Go figure.
