Bernie Sanders sounds alarm about threat posed by fossil fuels (and is doing his best to burn away as much of it as possible)

Hypocrisy, socialist-style!

Shot & chaser time!

Actually there are three shots here from Bernie Sanders just to get everybody to understand what a dire crisis the burning of fossil fuels has apparently brought about:

And the chaser is frankly not that surprising because most of these climate change uber-alarmists are hypocrites of the highest socialist order:

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for “transportation.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” Jones said.

Got that? A senator from Vermont who says burning fossil fuels is going to be the death of us all torched a s**tload of gas flying private around the country to campaign for other people.

Progressive utopia update: Switching to renewable energy will end racism and ‘economic injustice, or something

Same old socialist song and dance

Anybody who actually chooses to pay attention knows that all the “climate change” doom and gloom talk is all a giant wealth grab (even the French are starting to figure it out). And where there’s a wealth grab, you’ll find social justice warriors clinging to the movement like lampreys on a shark. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even been sworn into Congress yet and she’s already figured that out:

How switching to indeterminate energy sources that would in the process cause the price of the only available existing energy sources to skyrocket would “help” the poor is anybody’s guess.

Here’s another national treasure who appeared with Bernie Sanders saying to act on “climate change” is to take action in favor of “gender equality”:

Here’s the capper: Leaders of the annual “fleece the masses” meeting disguised as a “Climate Conference” said this is what’s going to be required to save humanity:

In a rare intervention, presidents of previous UN climate summits issued a joint statement as the talks got under way, calling on states to take “decisive action… to tackle these urgent threats”.

“The impacts of climate change are increasingly hard to ignore,” said the statement, a copy of which was obtained by AFP. “We require deep transformations of our economies and societies.”

All this alarmism is a giant “transfer the wealth” cult, and anybody who doesn’t acknowledge that is an easy mark or in on the sham.

Harvard, Yale scientists have a plan to do something about that pesky sun warming the earth

When real life collides with The Simpsons

The “scientific” left in this country are determined to do something about a problem they say threatens the whole of humanity, even if they have to accidentally kill everybody in the process:

That’s just how I like my “settled science” to sound — with alleged solutions that start with “it sounds crazy, but…”

From CNN:

Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.

The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

Nothing better than an “as-yet unproven way to tackle” a problem that is as-yet unproven. But at least they’re admitting that it’s the sun that is in fact warming the world.

When real life collides with The Simpsons:

Quintessential Obama: Americans unwilling to take steps on climate change because of their ‘hate, anger, racism and mommy issues’

More like “projection”

I’m not even quite sure what to make of this, except that the president who pledged to “fundamentally transform America” in 2008 didn’t quite get the job done and seems a but, er, frustrated:

Anybody want to do the psychology homework behind why he connected people who don’t want to waste money on any more “green jobs” shams that were prevalent during Obama’s presidency and why that amounts to “mommy issues”? Paging Dr. Freud! It isn’t hard to see why Hillary thought that “basket of deplorables” comment would help propel her to the White House — that kind of thing worked for Obama.

I’m going to go ahead and diagnose Obama with a big case of old-fashioned, garden variety “projection.”

Global warming alarmists pissed off by Canadian gov’t report that nukes their narrative about polar bears

Perfect

It seems that reality isn’t cooperating with one of the “we’re all gonna die from man-made climate change” crowd’s most cherished talking points, and they’re not liking it:

Polar bear numbers are so high they threaten native Inuit populations, a controversial Canadian government report has found.

The animals, which have become one of the enduring symbols of the environmental cause, are growing in such numbers that they cannot currently safely co-exist with humans in northern Canada, the report suggested.

But the findings have been bitterly contested by environmental scientists who say that climate change has simply pushed the bears closer to humans as they search for food.
[…]
Wildlife experts often use images of emaciated polar bears to show how habitats are coming under threat due to ice shrinking and sea levels rising.

For example just a few months ago footage emerged of a polar bear prowling around on thin ice in the Nunavut territory in the northernmost region in Canada.

Wildlife experts said that the photos showed how the polar bears’ habitat is coming under threat due to human-induced global warming.

However, a new report, drafted by the Nunavut government completely contracts these widely-held claims about declining populations.

The draft report, which is set to be published by the end of this year, claims that polar bear populations are much higher than scientists estimated – and are actually increasing.

If nothing changes the global warming alarmists might find themselves left with no choice but to go up there and start knocking off some polar bears so real life more closely matches their narrative.

Scientists forced to go full ‘science denier’ on their own alarmist report about ocean warming

So much for “settled,” peer-reviewed “science.”

This article, as well as the “study” cited, should all appear in the dictionary under the definition of “confirmation bias”:

Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth’s oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are.

Two weeks after the high-profile study was published in the journal Nature, its authors have submitted corrections to the publication. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, home to several of the researchers involved, also noted the problems in the scientists’ work and corrected a news release on its website, which previously had asserted that the study detailed how the Earth’s oceans “have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.”

“Unfortunately, we made mistakes here,” said Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at Scripps, who was a co-author of the study. “I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.”

Uh oh, the “settled science” denial is coming from inside the house!

Can we now call those same scientists “science deniers”? That’s now it works, right?

No, the media doesn’t exaggerate or make stuff up, why do you ask? Part 4,305: Hurricane ‘journalism’

Hurricane Florence brought with it another opportunity to play “what’s wrong with this video” thanks to a Weather Channel reporter:

The Weather Channel’s explanation is as embarrassing as the video:

“It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted,” the network said.

Science! Except people who are exhausted exaggerate less, not more.

Oh, and keep in mind that these are the same people pushing climate change alarmism, but I’m sure they wouldn’t exaggerate about that stuff. /s

The above video reminded me of this classic:

JOURNALISM!

Washington Post editorial board spots more Trump collusion, this time with… a hurricane?

Gee, why do so many Americans distrust the media?

The Trump presidency has made liberals so effing insane that even the mainstream media is heavily infected with TDS. Here’s just one example:

Trump hasn’t even been in office two years and already he’s trying to help destroy the Carolinas, or something:

President Trump issued several warnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice.

Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.

As Rahm Emanuel once said, “never let a crisis go to waste,” and the mainstream media was paying attention. In other news, the mainstream media wonders why two-thirds of Americans view them with skepticism.

Next up from the WaPo editorial board: Hurricane Florence and how Russia made it worse with Trump’s help.

Latest awful thing that global warming denial has helped cause: Aretha Franklin’s death

Science!

The list of things that are alleged to have been caused by global warming (the preferred summertime usage) and climate change (the preferred wintertime usage) “denial” can already wrap twice around the Earth at the equator, and thanks to Stevie Wonder the list just got a little longer:

Stevie Wonder visited the ailing star days before she died and said that at that point she was unable to speak.

“We have to celebrate her life and continue the legacy by letting people of all the various genres hear the music that influenced us all,” Wonder told CBS This Morning’.

Wonder drew a line between the increase of cancer and the ignorance of global warming. “I just feel that all these various diseases that we have and all that is happening in the world in part is because there are those who don’t believe in global warming, don’t believe that what we do affects the world,” he said. “What we eat affects the world and affects us. I just hope that people will grow up out of the foolishness and know that we all, by how we think, how we view, how we treat others, we will never unlock the key until we truly let go of the hatred, the bigotry, the evilness, the selfishness. We do that and we can unlock some of those things that keep us in this place”.

A 76-year-old woman passed away. If that’s not enough evidence to convince you man-made global warming is real and an emergency, nothing will.

GREEN movement: DNC decides after 2 long months that maybe fossil fuel industry donations aren’t all that bad after all

THAT didn’t last long

My tweet best summed up how I feel about this story:

The DNC just wanted to make sure they remain fully committed to the “green” movement:

The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations.

The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party “support[s] fossil fuel workers” and will accept donations from “employers’ political action committees.” It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote.

The new resolution nods to “forward-looking employers” that are “powering America’s all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology.”

Just watch now, in an Al Gore-ian twist, the Democrats will spin this to their angry base by pledging to spend the fossil fuel company donations to support candidates who will warn the world that fossil fuels are destroying the earth.
