An odd blind spot, considering that Charles Koch and the late David Koch enjoy(ed) a combined net worth estimated at $117 Billion
, and a small but very estimable fraction of that has gone into funding of MMGW skepticism. From Wishy Washy Pedia as of today's date:
So you may not care about them -- but they seem to care about us, and the public in general, as well as our elected officials, and what we collectively think. And isn't it curious that out of all the videos and other information you've posted in support of MMGW skepticism, such a large proportion turns out to have Koch money behind it.
We're dealing here with the issue of Political Intersectionality (beyond its more narrow definition), as also witnessed by your alignment on this issue with the NeoFascist and AntiEinsteinian Claude Badley.
This is quite funny that you would rag on me for my intersectionality while you and Claude are in are in bed with George Soros. So don't throw baseless rocks and stones if you don't expect the same in return. Or are you saying that there is a basis to be worried about?
In any case, I'm going to side with my Boomers on this one.
No, what I admitted is to spending enough time to go through 15 minutes of the transcript of the Heller/Goddard video. In that amount of time, I concluded that the man is a charlatan, for the reasons I explained. Capeesh? I've been studying this issue for years, and heard and read plenty of material on both sides of the debate, thank you very much.
Well, apparently you also believe that the several orders of magnitude greater money provided to the shit pseudo-scientists (whores) that report to the geopolitical globalist agenda of the UN's IPCC and their unproven hypothesis of H2O cloud amplification, have greater merit than the real scientists who get summarily defunded and forced to retire thanks to the likes of Al Gore and the whore science funding mechanism of Western academia and government.
Instead we listen to fake whoror [sic] stories about polar bears and arctic seals who are in actuality very happy, except for some unlucky ones who are cherry-picked from all the hoards of polar bears merrily running around.
The direct predecessors of these psuedo-scientists were telling us in the 1970's that the next Milankovich Ice Age was immanent .... but they got the timing and other aspects wrong, so then we come to the equally fake Global Warming scare, where they conveniently seize upon poor little CO2, a key plant nutrient, as the apocalyptic scapegoat. And we can clearly see, that as the central pillar of AGW that there is no correlation whatsoever between CO2 levels and temperature. The sensitivity has been criminally overestimated by probably a factor of 10.
This has caused a rash of hysterical, do-gooding (n)eoLiberal assholes to go flying around the globe in private jets preaching to tribal peoples to please maintain their harsh, primitive caveman lifestyles, for the sake of all life on Earth, but to especially help the nice assholes to maintain their luxury lives. This is Neocolonialism 2.0 .... and ironically we now know that raising developing peoples out of such poverty means that the global population will soon plateau and even diminish because of this.
Still waiting for this information, as I'd like to have the opportunity to address this.
You could simply watch that video and see that NASA altered their temperature graphs, or are you actually saying that this is wrong? (No, you have already admitted that this was a reinterpretation of the data, as if the real scientists originally couldn't interpret and plot graphs properly.)
As time permits, I'll go back and watch it for you again, but now I will also school you on just how fucked up the measurement of global surface temperature always was, and that now it is even worse in the post Boomer era. (I actually already covered some of this embarrasing shit.)
Let's hope so. And even if climate change wasn't an issue at all, shouldn't the issue of fossil fuel depletion and exhaustion be motivation enough for a transition to renewable sources? That is, unless you also believe cornucopian theories of virtually infinite abiotic carbohydrate supplies, readily accessible to us on the surface. The reality is, of course, that increasingly extraordinary means are being used to maintain adequate supplies of liquid fuels.
The video from Mark Blyth lost me at the 0:19 second mark, where he says he's fully in the pay of George Soros, and the pay is not that good.
Well, how much are you and Claude getting from George Soros?
And, please stop misrepresenting my positions. I have already stated, like many AGW catastrophe 'skeptics', that I don't know if oil is abiotic or not, and that, in any case, we should always be appropriately frugal with the use of such resources. Also, that where appropriate (including economically) that so-called green technologies are good.
It would be better for all of us if the debate focused on the science and not on all the fake scare stories and grant driven predictions
Not exactly the same thing, eh? "We IPCC Scientists can Do the Impossible for Breakfast, just as long as you give us enough grant money."
Yes, that is the same thing. Be careful what you quote.
What that (doing the Impossible for Breakfast) means is pulling whatever a priori conclusion the IPCC political masters want out of their whore asses ... or get fired.
As you've correctly noted before, the intersectionality of all this also places me uncomfortably in line with Donald Trump, and we can use this to help predict that Trump et al.
will take a great fall, and along with it, that the AGW Skeptic positions and lives will be apocalyptically terminated (as provocateur Claude Badley and ilk enthusiastically encourages). But, this does not mean that they will be wrong, just DEAD. Thx, they say.
Back in the day, the pseudo-scientists said that Global Cooling would cause weather extremes (beyond the normal range of variability) and it did not, and now their descendants have been saying that Global Warming would identically cause the same weather extremes, and it has not.
While there is no explanatory correlation with CO2, there is a tight historical correlation with solar activity and cosmic rays. The latter which vary greatly in intensity over long scales of time. And in the immediate, the only realist laboratory of the Earth will be tested, as the Sun is now entering a minimum, and after all the last decades of plateau, it is now cooling.
It used to snow where I live once every 3 years, now it is snowing for the second time in one month, and it will likely snow again next week. This after a very unusually cool summer, and the whole country is experiencing record cold temps. Of course, you will say this is from warming and CO2, because this is your new religion for the new age, the scary Beast that will motivate the forming of its new order, including Blyth's global economy.
That said, I am not one to say that there is no reason to be afraid of climate change. No, there is every reason to be afraid of it, as Brian Fagan pointed out. And when we have only just moved into the years of the latest Mini Ice Age, will our fragile (advanced) societies be able to withstand the cold, whether you want to say it is from Global Warming or not?
When the Trump Administration wont show us their documents and their witnesses there is something wrong. But this doesn't preclude that there is an even bigger problem than with them. The same goes when we can't see the Alarmist data sets, albeit some of us Boomers can get the broad outlines from their cherry picked time scales and more.
The "ensembles" of bull shit data can and do deliver whatever range of predictions that the IPCC politicos desire. And those predictions failed miserable, such that a reasonable person would first consider that the data, if not the iterative algorithms, and presumptions were suspect. But no, the whole craven industry decided to double down ala Trump. As If the a priori political agenda wasn't bad enough, people now have to justify their criminal careers and all the taxpayer money made off with. and all the trillions of tons of CO2 it placed in the atmosphere running the supercomputers to create their sham spaghetti models.
There are a whole lot of problems in the world that should be getting attention, and every last joule devoted to CO2 itself is depriving us from attending to them by the same amount. But, somebody
will benefit from this globalist scam, and it will not just be about Koch and friends money.
