Let's face it, we're all on a road to nowhere and we're all trying to get the most out of this life....most are polite, kind and willing to help out a neighbor in need.  

 

We probably all recycle, don't litter and so on, we're still on a road to nowhere, I don't let that depress me it's just the way it is.  I've accepted my mortality and while I do not want to pass away anytime soon, I know I will and that 1/2 my life is over already.  For me having faith that there is a God (Christian) has helped me with this area.

You have a fair point in the rest of your post, but the above remains to be seen.

Provides fantastic farming opportunities if this continues.  We can replace the agriculture that will be decimated due to drought with that further north.  

 

Cmon...  Change is good.  Remember?

Back to the OP, it could have been worse if climate alarmists were correct five decades ago, Peconic Bay could be under a glacier today. Back in 1970, the concerns were that industrial air pollution would prevent sun light from hitting Earth and all water in rivers and lakes would evaporate. Anyone reading that back in 1970 should have given up fishing and moved to the Amazon.

Chicken Littles the lot of you. Every generation has seen the demise of man laid bare before them. As if things could be shown to adequately foretell. 

 

This is all about control over people and their money. Pay us for the safety we offer from the planetary doom we promised or else. Equality provided through open theft. 
 

Trump made it official yesterday that America has indeed withdrawn from the Paris Accord’s promise of piles of American cash. Monies earmarked for redistribution by the UN as they saw fit. Without the Americans funding everything, we can look for it to simply fade away until the next communist gets control. Elect Warren and you will see renewed world wide interest in American’s money.

 

 Will adding three dollars to the price of a gallon of gas excite you near as much as it has the Europeans ? How would you enjoy considering the amount of electricity your various small appliances will cost to run ? That is the life the commies envision for all of us. When they say green, they mean our money.

 

The clue that this is a giant hoax is everywhere. You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Gullible Warming is dead as far as any of it’s intended purposes are concerned. We laughed it away.

Since some one mentioned the 11,000 SCIENTISTS.  Here is part of an article. If someone knows how to load it w/o links that would be helpful.

 

“‘NBC: More than 11,000 Scientists Issue Fresh Warning: Earth Faces a Disaster.’ ‘CNN: Climate Emergency: 11,000 Scientists Warn of Untold Suffering.'” The Guardian, Al Jazeera, U.K. Independent newspaper. It turns out “there was no study, there was just a press release. And it wasn’t 11,000 scientists, it was 11,000 random people who put their names on a web page.” This was a total managed lie. There was no study. There were no scientists.

Those non scientists are correct about the solution to glowbull warming.

Drive-Bys All Report Fake Climate Study
posted by Premiere Networks -  Nov 11, 2019
RUSH: Our buddies over at Power Line discovered something. Last week (I don't know if you saw it, there was a story, and it was big out there) "that 11,000 scientists had issued a report contending that the Earth faces a 'climate emergency.' NBC News ... described a 'study' produced by an 'international consortium of more than 11,000 scientists.'" There's a "screen shot of a Google search illustrates the coverage," a page of a Google search:

"'NBC: More than 11,000 Scientists Issue Fresh Warning: Earth Faces a Disaster.' 'CNN: Climate Emergency: 11,000 Scientists Warn of Untold Suffering.'" The Guardian, Al Jazeera, U.K. Independent newspaper. It turns out "there was no study, there was just a press release. And it wasn’t 11,000 scientists, it was 11,000 random people who put their names on a web page." This was a total managed lie. There was no study. There were no scientists.

People went on a Web page and asked others reading it to put their signature on it. That was then presented as a scientific paper. It's kind of like these two skeletons that put together Center for Science in the Public Interest that banned coconut oil, MSG. They weren't scientists. They were just a couple people that didn't want you to eat what you wanted so they created an icon, got a fax machine, got the media going. It was all made-up stuff.

 

Here's the story:

More than 11,000 scientists issue fresh warning: Earth faces a climate emergency

A new study identifies six key areas for critical changes, including addressing the planet’s swelling population.

An international consortium of more than 11,000 scientists is backing a study with a dire warning: Earth is facing a climate emergency.

The new study of how human activities have impacted the planet over the past four decades declares that harmful greenhouse gas emissions are rapidly rising, that governments are making insufficient progress in tackling the crisis, and that scientists have “a moral obligation to clearly warn humanity of any catastrophic threat.” The findings were published Tuesday in the journal BioScience.

 

The research, led by ecologists William Ripple and Christopher Wolf at Oregon State University, identifies six key areas in which governments, businesses and members of the public can make critical changes, including addressing the planet’s swelling population, which has been a contentious topic in the climate debate.

The authors say family planning services and other social justice efforts that promote full gender equity should be enacted to help stabilize the world’s population, which is increasing by approximately 80 million people per year.

Over 11,000 scientists warn Earth facing climate emergency

NOV. 6, 201904:03

“Lots of scientists have steered away from talking about population because it’s controversial,” said Steve Easterbrook, director of the University of Toronto’s School of the Environment, who was one of the study’s signatories. “The policy recommendations the study makes about gender equity and making family planning available to bring down the birth rate — these are completely consistent with studies of what we need to do in response to climate change. I’m glad to see it given more prominence than it normally gets.”

The study says countries should replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources while also investing in technologies to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Governments should also end subsidies to fossil fuel companies and wealthier countries should support poorer nations in transitioning to cleaner energy sources.

In addition, nations need to sharply reduce emissions of potent pollutants such as methane, soot and hydrofluorocarbons, which are human-made compounds that are commonly used in air conditioning, refrigeration and aerosols, the study finds. The researchers say that reducing these short-lived pollutants could slow the planet’s short-term warming trend by more than 50 percent over the next few decades.

Climate change mitigation efforts should focus on protecting and restoring ecosystems such as forests, coral reefs, savannas and wetlands, which naturally absorb and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, they added.

The study also says people should eat mostly plant-based food, which will improve health and lower greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, and economies should prioritize carbon-free initiatives and sustaining ecosystems, rather than focusing on GDP growth and the pursuit of affluence.

Climate warning: California continues to burn, new data triples estimates of global flooding

The study is based on 40 years of data that show how human activities have affected the planet, including changes in fossil fuel consumption, carbon dioxide emissions, rates of deforestation and global surface temperatures. The authors warn that climate change is intensifying faster than most scientists predicted and is “threatening natural ecosystems and the fate of humanity.”

Urgent action is needed, the researchers caution, “to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis.”

The report’s signatories include scientists from 153 countries, known together as the Alliance of World Scientists.

“I was concerned that we are now making the environment a political issue, and the environment should not be seen as a partisan issue,” Leslie Duram, a professor of geography and environmental resources at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, said of her motivation to endorse the study’s findings. “I want us all to realize that we, as human beings and inhabitants of this planet, need to come together to take action to help preserve the environment.”

The study does highlight some progress that has been made, such as a 373 percent increase in solar and wind energy consumption per decade since 2000. But the authors point out that in 2018, solar and wind energy use was still 28 times smaller than fossil fuel consumption.

The new study reiterates many of the same findings as seminal reports from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, but does emphasize the need to address the planet’s swelling population, which has been a contentious topic in the climate debate.

Easterbrook said that part of his motivation to sign the study was to support the recent youth-led movements calling for climate action.

“There have been plenty of people willing to criticize these kids that perhaps they don’t understand the science, but it’s increasingly clear that a lot of the youth leading these protests understand the science much better than any of us,” he said. “It was important for us scientists to say: yes, the situation is that dire.”

Thanks J!

Such a great headline-  11,000 SCIENTIST's! 

 

They just went back to their research-just in case there were any doubters and released in unison. Pay no attention to those that blurted out that it's about redistribution of wealth (but believe everything else aoc & her handlers say). 

Socialism is the only solution! The lemmings are ...........dy,,,,,,, flourishing?!!

 ...when they say green, they mean our money.

Here's the common planet wide delusion that America is rich enough to spread the wealth.

 

What freaking wealth?

 

America is $23 trillion in debt, so the next time you hear someone saying America needs to redistribute its wealth, remind them of the debt, and tell them let's start with redistributing the debt first.

In my many years on this board I have learned that calling those you disagree with stupid and/or uneducated is the surest sign of an argument lost.

Mr Hirdy lost me when he denied the climate had never changed before now.  I brought up the Ice Ages, the Medieval Warming Period and the Little Ice Age to name a few and he denied it.  A science denier through and through though he thinks he is like educated and smart.  Brainwashed is more like it.

Here you go.  The climate is cyclic going through periods of warming and cooling, governed by the Sun, interplanetary forces, the oceans, the magnetic poles, etc., etc.  And they react together in such ways as to be very difficult to predict.

 

Like everyone, I am all for cleaning up the planet and I want to keep pollution to a minimum.  But MM Global Warming is just another Marxist hoax to stampede people into giving up their freedom and their money.  Some of its backers are fellow travelers, some are sheep.

If you research who was best a predicting global temps over the past 30 years it's been a team of Russian geophysicists.  Same ones that are predicting a cooling trend due to the super grand solar minimum.

 

The "scientists" who are providing models to the UN IPCC have been off from 100% to 500% depending on model and model generation.

 

(Don't worry all you "orange man bad" fans, these Russians have been at it long before Trump got serious about politics.  Even before Putin came to power.)

Those would be the same scientists who would have had guaranteed incomes for life if the US had remained in the Paris Accords.
