New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Edward Markey are the main members of Congress behind the “Green New Deal” sham proposal (that’s an absolute embarrassment by the way), and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to move it forward:
Hey, look at that! The Dems’ emergency proposal that they say would save the planet from a fiery demise will get a vote. Progressive climate change alarmists like Sen. Markey must be thrilled, right? Well, no:
Give McConnell at least a hundred “called your bluff” points. The Dems don’t want this steaming pile of multi-trillion dollar socialism brought to a vote because they don’t want to be on record.
Polar vortexes have been areas over the earth’s poles for almost as long as there’s been an earth. The term “polar vortex” was first used to describe the atmospheric low-pressure areas as far back as 1853. So naturally lefties like Elizabeth Warren are trying to tie the age-old occurrence to man-made climate change, pledging to get rid of it if only we transfer a few trillion dollars of wealth to liberal schemes under the guise of “saving the planet.” Vote for Elizabeth Warren in 2020 if you want to end the modern scourge of weather:
What a condescending embarrassment.
But for now it’s not totally clear that Warren’s decided to commit to the 2020 race, which is what this is all about:
Gee, I sure hope she runs and wins so this polar vortex goes away!
I don’t know about you, but I’m smelling a PULITZER with this one:
This is a TV cop show that’s begging to be made! Suggested titles:
Straw & Order: Special Food Court Unit
Columbo Got Demoted
K Street Blues
Strawsky & Hutch
Or maybe the show’s title should be “The Counterproductivity Cops”:
On the first day the law took effect, a Starbucks store downtown threw away large bags filled with straws, a move that seemed to defeat the purpose of the ban.
Gee, do ya think so?
Imagine how much less polluted the world would be if liberals weren’t aggressively trying to save the planet.
They don’t believe their own BS
A bunch of climate change alarmists are meeting in Davos, Switzerland this week, and they’re more determined than ever to personally melt the polar ice caps to prove their point:
If these people try and “save the world” much longer we’re all going to choke to death on their fumes:
Political and business leaders and lobbyists are opting for bigger, more expensive aircrafts, according to analysis by the Air Charter Service, which found the number of private jet flights grew by 11% last year.
“There appears to be a trend towards larger aircraft, with expensive heavy jets the aircraft of choice, with Gulfstream GVs and Global Expresses both being used more than 100 times each last year,” said Andy Christie, private jets director at the ACS.
But the rest of us are supposed to change our diets to lawn clippings and tofu and give up fossil fuels because there’s a “planetary emergency,” or something. They don’t even believe their own BS.
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.
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.
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…”
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:
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.”
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.
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?
