Remember when this winter started with good rains in.the west all these articles by climate "scientists" and globahomo agitprop "news" corporations about how this will be a dry winter for the drought stricken west despite initial rains. Fuck you moron sell-outs, this will go down as one of the wettest winters in recent history in the west. Reservoirs should be full to the brim but I'm sure politicians made sure there is enough drainage and poor planning so they can keep promoting state of emergencies and fuck over their constituents.

Republican 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy declared during the first GOP primary debate that “climate change” is a “hoax.”

Ramaswamy triggered a furious response from the Fox News audience and his fellow candidates while making the bold declaration.

During the Fox News debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Ramaswamy came out swinging.

The successful American entrepreneur jumped in on a question about “climate change.”

Before others spoke, Ramaswamy said he was the only person on the debate stage that was “not bought and paid for.”

“Let us be honest as Republicans,” Ramaswamy said over the top of the other candidates as he took control of the conversation.

“I’m the only person on the stage who isn’t bought and paid for, so I can say this,” Ramaswamy said, provoking outrage from his rivals and boos from the audience.

“The climate change agenda is a hoax,” Ramaswamy declared.

“We have to declare independence from it,” he added as the crowd erupted.

“The reality is the anti-carbon agenda is the wet blanket on our economy.”

Yeah, Ramaswamy is worth about $1 billion. I think Trump is worth at least $5 billion going by all the estimates on his net worth ranging from Bloomberg to Forbes.

But one thing is that Ramaswamy is gaining popularity and exposure, which is going to help him later even if he loses. I don't see him going away into obscurity.

And he is right about energy and oil policies. Just look at North American and world rig counts on Ycharts.

Chevron's CEO said because of Birdbrain Biden's energy policies, there was less incentive for oil and gas companies to increase exploration and production.

Let alone look at electricity prices such as for Florida Power and Light, which is investing a lot in solar..

CO2 Does not control Temperature. It is Temperature that controls CO2...

I hadn't hear that before, but I bet it's true.


Natural CO2 sources account for the majority of CO2 released into the atmosphere. Oceans provide the greatest annual amount of CO2 of any natural or anthropogenic source. Other sources of natural CO2 include animal and plant respiration, decomposition of organic matter, forest fires, and emissions from volcanic eruptions. There are also naturally occurring CO2 deposits found in formation layers within the Earth’s crust that could serve as CO2 sources.

Majority? How about 97%, is that possible?

Also interesting:


Is the airborne fraction of anthropogenic carbon dioxide increasing?
December 31, 2009
American Geophysical Union
Most of the carbon dioxide emitted by human activity does not remain in the atmosphere, but is instead absorbed by the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. However, some studies have suggested that the ability of oceans and plants to absorb carbon dioxide recently may have begun to decline and that the airborne fraction of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions is therefore beginning to increase. In contradiction to those studies, new research finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.

Plant respiration?
462   AmericanKulak   2023 Aug 29, 8:07am  

Plants diffuse CO2 out their leaves.

He said the carbon dioxide released by plants every year was now estimated to be about 10 to 11 times the emissions from human activities, rather than the previous estimate of five to eight times.


Hmmm, maybe this explains why during the highest CO2 levels in history, was also the time we had massive plant life and forests stretching up into Svalbard

I dunno. Plants still use more CO2 during photosynthesis than they create during cellular respiration. I would say the high CO2 levels allowed that massive plant life to occur.

More than 1,600 scientists, including two Nobel laureates, declare climate 'emergency' a myth

The global coalition of scientists say that politics and a journalistic frenzy has propelled a doomsday climate change hysteria. The signatories also ask other scientists to "address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming."

"I was adopted by the environmental advocacy groups and the alarmists and I was treated like a rock star," Curry recounts. "Flown all over the place to meet with politicians."

But then some researchers pointed out gaps in her research—years with low levels of hurricanes.

"Like a good scientist, I investigated," says Curry. She realized that the critics were right. "Part of it was bad data. Part of it is natural climate variability."

Curry was the unusual researcher who looked at criticism of her work and actually concluded "they had a point."

Then the Climategate scandal taught her that other climate researchers weren't so open-minded. Alarmist scientists' aggressive attempts to hide data suggesting climate change is not a crisis were revealed in leaked emails.

"Ugly things," says Curry. "Avoiding Freedom of Information Act requests. Trying to get journal editors fired."

It made Curry realize that there is a "climate change industry" set up to reward alarmism.

"The origins go back to the…U.N. environmental program," says Curry. Some U.N. officials were motivated by "anti-capitalism. They hated the oil companies and seized on the climate change issue to move their policies along."

The U.N. created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

"The IPCC wasn't supposed to focus on any benefits of warming. The IPCC's mandate was to look for dangerous human-caused climate change." ...

This is how "manufactured consensus" happens. Even if a skeptic did get funding, it's harder to publish because journal editors are alarmists.

"The editor of the journal Science wrote this political rant," says Curry. She even said, "The time for debate has ended."

"What kind of message does that give?" adds Curry. Then she answers her own question: "Promote the alarming papers! Don't even send the other ones out for review. If you wanted to advance in your career, like be at a prestigious university and get a big salary, have big laboratory space, get lots of grant funding, be director of an institute, there was clearly one path to go."

That's what we've got now: a massive government-funded climate alarmism complex.

Here’s the TRUTH: the climate disaster death rate has declined by 98% over the last century, even as carbon emissions have risen. The average person is 50X less likely to die of a climate-related cause than in 1920. Why? Fossil fuels.
And 8x as many people die from cold temperatures as warm ones. The right answer to all temperature-related deaths is, again, more abundance of fossil fuels. These are inconvenient truths for the climate cult. The real emergency isn’t climate change, it’s the man-made disaster of climate change policies that threaten U.S. prosperity.

There is no climate emergency

Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more
scientific. Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in
their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately
count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures

Natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming

The geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the
planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases. The Little Ice Age
ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we now are experiencing a period of warming.

Warming is far slower than predicted

The world has warmed significantly less than predicted by IPCC on the basis
of modeled anthropogenic forcing. The gap between the real world and the
modeled world tells us that we are far from understanding climate change.

Climate policy relies on inadequate models

Climate models have many shortcomings and are not remotely plausible as
policy tools. They do not only exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases, they
also ignore the fact that enriching the atmosphere with CO2 is beneficial.

CO2 is plant food, the basis of all life on Earth

CO2 is not a pollutant. It is essential to all life on Earth. More CO2 is favorable
for nature, greening our planet. Additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth
in global plant biomass. It is also profitable for agriculture, increasing the
yields of crops worldwide.

Global warming has not increased natural disasters

There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes,
floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent.
However, there is ample evidence that CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly.

Climate policy must respect scientific and economic realities

There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and
alarm. We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy
proposed for 2050. Go for adaptation instead of mitigation; adaptation works
whatever the causes are.

'Mad' Green plan for 30mph speed limit on Scotland's busiest motorway is PASSED by Glasgow council

Transport Scotland has said it will work with the city administration with a view toward implementing the proposal after councillors ignored warnings about the impact on the city economy

A Scottish Green plan to cut the speed limit on part of the M8 to 30mph that was branded 'madness' by the Scottish Conservatives has been passed by Glasgow City Council. We previously reported that Councillor Christy Mearns had lodged a motion asking for action on the city centre stretch of the road.

During a Sunday press conference, Governor DeSantis responded to federal officials and other woke leftists who’ve been claiming that Hurricane Idalia somehow proves their idiotic manmade climate change theory.

The Governor used facts and history, which cause a reaction in woke leftists similar to what happens when you bury a vampire in crucifixes and garlic.

DeSantis cited an 1896 storm with 125 mph winds and, most timely, Florida's 1935 Labor Day hurricane, both of which caused massive destruction and deaths, and both of which predated “manmade climate change.”

In his inimitable non-nonsense style, DeSantis made it clear, even to people who live in Portland:

"So, I think the notion that somehow hurricanes are something new, that’s just false. And we’ve got to stop politicizing the weather and stop politicizing natural disasters. We know from history there’s been times when it’s very busy in Florida, late ‘40s, early ‘50s, you had a lot of hits of significant hurricanes.

So, I think sometimes people need to take a breath and get a little bit of perspective here. But the notion that somehow if we just adopt, you know, very left-wing policies at the federal level that somehow we will not have hurricanes, that is a lie.

And that is people trying to take what happened with different types of storms and use that as a pretext to advance their agenda on the backs of people that are suffering. And that’s wrong, and we’re not going to do that in the state of Florida."

Presidential politics aside, we Floridians are grateful to have a commonsense, plain-talking Governor instead of a Bob Peters-like WEF clone.

A new study by a team of mostly Bay Area scientists that found human-caused climate warming has increased the frequency of extremely fast-spreading California wildfires has come into question from the unlikeliest of critics — its own lead author.

Patrick T. Brown, climate team co-director at the nonprofit Breakthrough Institute in Berkeley and a visiting research professor at San Jose State University, said his Aug. 30 paper in the prestigious British journal Nature is scientifically sound and “advances our understanding of climate change’s role in day-to-day wildfire behavior.”

But Brown this week dropped a bomb on the journal — as well as his study’s co-authors who are staunchly defending the team’s work. In an online article, blog post and social media posts, Brown said he “left out the full truth to get my climate change paper published,” causing almost as much of a stir as the alarming findings themselves.

Brown wrote that the study didn’t look at poor forest management and other factors that are just as if not more important to fire behavior because “I knew that it would detract from the clean narrative centered on the negative impact of climate change and thus decrease the odds that the paper would pass muster with Nature’s editors and reviewers.” He added such bias in climate science “misinforms the public” and “makes practical solutions more difficult to achieve.”

On Thursday, Nature shot back. “When it comes to science, Nature does not have a preferred narrative,” Editor in Chief Magdalena Skipper wrote in a statement to the Bay Area News Group.

Of course Nature has a preferred narrative, that of the globull warming religion.

California bill forces companies to report all emissions, even from contractors

Companies that fail to submit verifiable inventories or have errors in their inventories could face $500,000 fines and litigation from the California Department of Justice.

Under a new emissions law waiting to be signed into law by California Gov. Gavin Newsom, emissions could be counted multiple times over as companies are forced to submit costly inventories of all emissions, even commuting and emissions from contractors. Critics say this bill will drive vertical integration under larger corporations that would stop doing business with smaller companies that struggle to measure their greenhouse gas emissions.

SB 253, authored by Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, would require companies with over $1 billion in revenue doing business in the state to count and report all emissions from the company, its subsidiaries, and every source of indirect emissions from up and down the value chain — from emissions created by the production of the energy used by the company all the way to employee commuting and emissions from the company’s contractors.

Wiener is the one that passed the pro-pedophilia bill recently.

So here we see a connection between pedophiles and the attempt to destroy all human life by reducing all plant food emissions.
