Here's a response I sent yesterday to Mark:

----------------------------

Global warming is real, but not just due to fossil fuels.  Many of the extreme weather events are actually the result of covert weather manipulations/weather warfare.

Skeptical Science will never acknowledge the covert activities.  It's an establishment mouthpiece, used to debunk many "conspiracy theories" that are actually true.

The Deep State uses global warming and covert geoengineering (chemtrailing and HAARP) to divide-n-rule the left and the right, who each get half of the truth.

5G IS MEANT TO BE A WEAPON, for total population control and enslavement by those at the top of the pyramid.  It can be used to kill people, to make them ill (specific illness can be chosen at will), to control their mental state, etc.  It isn't primarily about profit.  Listen to scientists explain such technology:

France and Germany have NOT banned WiFi in schools.  Some localities in these countries might have.  Not the whole country.  Both countries are firmly in the hands of the NWO, just like the US.  The state of Bavaria in Germany issued recommendation to its residents to choose landline over WiFi, a number of years ago.

Our friend Mark Crispin Miller forwarded this essay widely. It is published on a rightwing, racist (fascist), anti-semitic website (you can judge from all the disgusting comments I included below -- don't read them if you have a normal stomach!). I re-send it here because it exemplifies the most potent of the creepazoids' arguments (similar to the climate-change denyer Michael Crichton on this issue), and we should know about them and be able to refute them scientifically, as well as morally.

And ALSO because the very real issue of global climate change has being hijacked by liberal politicians whose refusal to understand climate change and destruction of the planet in the context of global capitalism undermines the strength (and importance) of our environmental movements. They open themselves and all of us to specific challenges because of sometimes shoddy research and presentations, let alone the pathetic non-solutions they propose which feed into bolstering capitalism instead of excoriating it. We need (again) to reclaim our own movements.

Still, I don't believe that most of us are able to effectively refute the technical and pseudo-scientific arguments made herein (aside from the obvious fascist statements by proponents of it). So, since a strong climate justice movement needs to be able to articulate effective responses to challenges such as this, I am submitting it here for us to make point-by-point rejoinders to it, to strengthen our movements.

I start off with a post from Mark Crispin Miller himself, who apparently took a bit of flak for forwarding this article (below) from a white supremacist website. It's worth it to read the two articles below Mark's disclaimers first, to see how much of the "scientific" misinformation presented there we all are able to understand and refute. That's our challenge.

P.S. We can and should also go to the original website and post our own comments there. Take on the bastards, especially because lots of people read these sort of sites who remain silent because they just don't know what to make of them nor how to refute the claims made there. Our interventions, thus, are important!

From Mark Crisipin Miller:

The "heretical take" that I sent out yesterday riled some of my subscribers, in part because
the source is (ferociously) right-wing, and in part because the piece itself contains misinformation.
Since I asked for any corrective material that people ought to see, I was glad to get this link
from my old friend Brad Friedman: https://skepticalscience.com/ .. It seems quite sound, so
I encourage all those interested in this issue to go there (and if anyone has problems with
that piece, I hope they'll let me know).

Now, I myself have problems with the global warming narrative, but not because I don't
believe it's true. It seems to me that the oceanographic evidence alone is strong enough
to make the case. What troubles me, rather, is how the New York Times et al. highlight
only that environmental threat, while blacking out or playing down or laughing off the
many other grave environmental dangers facing us.

For example, there's Fukushima -­ or, rather, where is Fukushima, in the NYTimes or
anywhere else? From those outlets you would never know what that ongoing disaster
has already done to the Pacific Ocean, which is not just gradually rising due to climate
change but also increasingly and lethally polluted with cesium and other radioactive
contaminants -­ which, according to Reuters, have been found as far north as Alaska's
Bering Strait. (I sent that piece out last month.) While "climate change" is everywhere
we look throughout the media, Fukushima is nowhere to be found.

Likewise, from "our free press" you would never know that WiFi is an environmental
danger, grave enough to move the governments of France and Germany to ban its
use in schools. Worse, the corporate media has totally blacked out the likely
catastrophic impact of 5G, which all of them are avidly promoting on behalf of the
huge advertisers pushing it. The same commercial bias explains the media's
long criminal silence on the carcinogenic effects of cell phone use -­ just as they
once blacked out the growing meddical consensus on the dangers of cigarette
smoking, except that this black-out is even worse, in that the risks of cell phone
use are (very quietly) acknowledged by the cell phone companies themselves,
in the fine print of their product information.

And while we're all bombarded endlessly with news about the threat of climate
change, and its impact on the oceans, there's very little news about the range
of poisons, other than the nuclear outflow from Fukushima, that have long since
salted all the waters of the world: pesticides, chemical fertilizers, detergents,
good old-fashioned sewage­and oil. While going on and on about what fossil
fuels will do to Earth's temperature, "our free press" has long since
clammed up completely vis-a-vis the toll of the BP oil-spill in the Gulf of Mexico:
https://grist.org/business-technology/what-bp-doesnt-want-you-to-know-about-the-2010-gulf-of-mexico-spill/

And then there's glyphosate, a terrifying danger, here and now, to the environment
and our food safety, as well as GMO's. While "our free press" has now and then,
and quietly, reported on the former, they've actively denied that there is anything
to fear from GMO's. (The Time's Jane Brody is, as usual, as staunch denialist on
this controversial subject.) That glyphosate has had a catastrophic impact on
marine life in those ever-rising oceans is a fact that's also been blacked out
by "our free press."

These are only some of the erasures long effected by the media's over-emphasis
on climate change per se; and, through its one-eyed emphasis on fossil fuels as the
primary cause of global warming, "our free press" has totally blacked out the mammoth
US military contribution to the problem. How many people know that the Department
of Defense is the worst polluter on the planet?
https://www.projectcensored.org/2-us-department-of-defense-is-the-worst-polluter-on-the-planet/

And how many people know that corporate agribusiness­which is to say, the crap
they scarf down aat McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's­also has contrributed
enormously to climate change? The emphasis on fossil fuels alone has largely
whited out the fact that animal agriculture accounts for some 15% of globing warming.
(On this subject I recommend the documentary Cowspiracy, which, although it
exaggerates the environmental impact of agribusiness, is still an important exposé
of an environmental threat with which the top green groups have been bizarrely
unconcerned.)

Such are my concerns about this issue. Please feel free to weigh in.

Mark sends this Postscript:

From Josh Mitteldorf:

Charles Eisenstein has a recent book on Climate, which says that human activity (capitalism gone mad) is destroying the
ecological foundation of our own human life as well as the natural treasure into which humanity was born, that CO2 is one
tiny piece of this picture, that there are huge uncertainties glossed over in the narrative of global warming as it has been
presented in the liberal media ... but that it really doesn't matter what you believe about CO2 because we need to completely
change everything about the way we relate to our planet and to each other, and as we learn to live in harmonious and sustainable
relationship, the CO2 issue will be handled organically, so to speak.

While this is a faithful account of Charles's message, I'm not doing justice to his book, which (like everything Charles writes) is
deeply thoughtful, full of revelations, fun to read, and -- in the end -- full of hope and confidence. Also like everything Charles writes,
it is offered free in full, or for a contribution.

From Rob Williams:
And don't forget GEOENGINEERING.

Earth Day, 2019: Fifty Years of Apocalyptic Global Warming Predictions and Why People Believe Them, Part 1

April 19, 2019 / 23 Comments / in Featured Articles / by Peter Baggins, Ph.D.

https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/0  

Two of the most important problems that the so-called Green New Deal will attempt to solve at the cost of incalculable trillions are global warming and its consequences, including drought, famine, floods and massive starvation. You may recall that Obama in his 2015 State of the Union speech declared that the greatest threat facing us was neither terrorism nor ISIS. It wasn’t nuclear weapons in rogue states either. “No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” said Obama.

His entire administration including Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry, frequently repeated the claim that climate change was the greatest threat facing the world. It was a sentiment Obama stressed again during an Earth Day trip to the Florida Everglades where he said, “This is not a problem for another generation. It has serious implications for the way we live right now”.

More recently, presidential hopefuls like Beto O’Rourke, along with most Democrat candidates, declared their zealous support for the Green New Deal in forecasting that the world will end in 12 years if nothing is done. “This is the final chance, the scientists are absolutely unanimous on this ­ that we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis. Not to be melodramatic, but the future of the world depends on us right now here where we are.”

This leads to the question I pose in this brief, data-driven, essay: What kind of track record do the politicians and their experts have in their climate predictions? After all, some of these predictions were made 10, 20 or even 50 years ago. Can’t we now look back at their predictions and begin to hold them accountable?

As others have done, I have chosen to begin with the first Earth Day “Celebration” in 1970. Now who can be against Earth Day? It’s a charming idea, and I have been an enthusiastic supporter since my college days in Ann Arbor, when we celebrated the event on the campus of the University of Michigan.

Here’s what the experts were saying almost a half century ago on Earth Day, 1970:

1) “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
­ Harvard biologist George Wald

2) “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,”
­ Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day

3) “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human
abitation.”
­ Washington University biologist Barry Commoner

4) “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100–200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years. … Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born. … [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.
­ Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

5) “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions …. By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
­ North Texas State University professor Peter Gunter

6) “In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half.”
­ Life magazine

7) “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable. … By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate … that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any. … The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
­ Kenneth Watt

Global Warming and Massive Starvation

I will focus my attention on the two most important predictions: Global Warming and Massive Starvation. If we return to the failed prediction of global cooling noted above, we can put the temperature data in a wider perspective. NASA data show that a period of warming in the 1920’s and 30’s was followed by two or three decades of cooling temperatures, from the 1940s to 1970. At that time many experts, including Carl Sagan, warned us of a possible ice age­only to have the climate change on them. From the 1970s to the late 1990s, scientists began to record slightly warmer temperatures. Curiously, as we look back at this period NASA sounded the alarm for global warming while a short time later the New York Times cited NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] data showing no warming over the past 100 years in the US.

[]


[]


Since then, group think and political correctness, plus rewards in government grants and university promotions, have created incentives for nearly everyone to jump onto the current bandwagon of projecting an escalating warming trend. Once again we came back to the doomsday scenario that characterized 1970’s.

Then, out of the blue, the darned climate changed again. Global temperature data has been roughly flat since about 1998, even cooling by ..056 degrees C from February 2016 to February 2018, according to official NASA global temperature data. Of course, this is just a two-year trend.

You may have noticed that nearly all of the doomsday theories seem to begin with the phrase, “if current trends continue.” But, as I have just reviewed, current trends don’t continue. Global temperatures go down, then up, then stay flat. Population growth tapers off, new oil reserves are discovered, agricultural yields increase at even higher rates. Doomsday forecasters always overestimate gloomy trends and underestimate human ingenuity in problem solving.

This raises the question: How would an informed citizen make sense of our current predicament?

Without question there has been an increase in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities. A majority of scientists believe this to be the primary source of the global warming that has occurred.

Just how much warming has occurred?

The scientific consensus is that the average temperature of the Earth has risen about 0.4 °C over the past 100 years. This is far less than experts predicted. And therein lies the problem: scientists are better at observation than prediction.

[]

A case in point: experts from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate carrying out global warming research have now predicted that average global temperatures could increase between 1.4 and 5.8 °C by the year 2100. Notice the nearly 5-fold difference between the conservative and more liberal (one is tempted to say “progressive”) estimates. This strikes me as akin to meteorologists predicting tomorrow’s high as somewhere between 40 and 80 degrees. Not much of a forecast if you are trying to decide whether to head to the beach or not. The confidence interval seems pretty safe, but the precision leaves much to be desired. Just how much faith should one put in such projections, given the flawed models and track record of failed predictions?

Regarding the other staggering Earth Day forecast of widespread starvation into hundreds of millions, recent satellite data from NASA and NOAA offer a compelling explanation for the spectacular failure of these predictions.

Almost half of Earth’s vegetated lands have shown significant greening over the past 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a recent study published in the journal Nature Climate Change. An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions.

[]  




[]

This greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States, or more than two million square miles of extra green leaf area per year, compared to the early 2000’s. That increase represents an enormous amount of food to feed a hungry planet, which is one reason the Earth Day predictions of mass starvation never materialized.

Because the mainstream media refuses to report such important data as this is from NASA and NOAA that do not support their doomsday narrative, I have never actually met anyone who knew anything about this when I mention it. I only learned about this myself a few years ago because of Matt Ridley, whose excellent blog I recommend without reserve:

You may remember from high school biology that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase photosynthesis, spurring plant growth. Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to chemically combine carbon dioxide with nitrogen drawn in from the air with water and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are the main source of food, fiber and fuel for life on Earth. The good news is that the impact that this greening has had in reducing hunger and starvation around the globe is undiminished, despite going unreported. When is the last time you heard a report of massive human starvation of hundreds of millions, or even tens of milions. How about 1 million … do I hear a hundred thousand, anyone? Anyone?

Fact Check: Fewer and fewer people die from climate-related natural disasters.

This is clearly the opposite of what you hear from the mainstream media, which loves to provide as much coverage as possible of one disaster after another. A more rational analysis would examine the average number of deaths per decade from 1920-1917. But this would show a “huuuge” decline in deaths caused by climate change, and we can’t have that now can we? The data below are from the most respected global database, the International Disaster Database.
[]
In contrast to the dire Earth Day predictions of 1970, climate-related deaths have been declining strongly for 70 years. Notice that this decline in the absolute number deaths occurred while the global population increased four-fold. Thus, the individual risk of dying from climate-related disasters has declined almost 99% from the 1920s to the present day. Our increased wealth and technological capacity to respond to natural disasters has greatly reduced our collective human climate vulnerability – Good news for rational beings, bad news for Democrat candidates.



Fifty Years of Apocalyptic Global Warming Predictions and Why People Believe Them, Part 2

April 21, 2019 / 15 Comments / in Featured Articles / by Peter Baggins, Ph.D.

[]

Scientists have known for some time that their predictive models of global warming were at increasing odds with the data. More recently, they have begun to pinpoint some of the faulty assumptions in the models used to make projections (not observations) of global warming. One example of this type of correction is a 2018 article published in the prestigious journal, Science.

Nitrogen availability is a central controller of terrestrial plant growth and, thereby, of the carbon cycle and global climate change. It has been widely assumed that the atmosphere is the main source of terrestrial nitrogen input. Surprisingly, Houlton et al. now show that bedrock is just as large a nitrogen source across major sectors of the global terrestrial environment.

Climate scientists have long known that plants offset some of the effects of climate change by absorbing and storing CO2. But they assumed that the ability to plants to perform this function was limited because the availability of nitrogen in the atmosphere was limited. As an earlier 2003 study published in Science stated, “there will not be enough nitrogen available to sustain the high carbon uptake scenarios.”

But this idea that the only source of nitrogen for plant life came from the air has been refuted in a more recent article, also in Science. Now we know that there are vast storehouses of nitrogen in the planet’s bedrock that plants can also feed on. In light of these findings, Ronald Amundson, a soil biogeochemist at the University of California at Berkeley, told Chemical and Engineering News that “If there is more nitrogen there than expected, then the constraints on plant growth in a high-CO2 world may not be as great as we think.”

With more nitrogen available, plant life might be able to absorb more CO2 than climate scientists have been estimating. This  “has the potential to change all projections related to climate change,” because there could be more carbon storage on land and less in the atmosphere than the models assume.

For interested readers, a series of articles on this topic reveal other evidence of weaknesses in climate models used to predict future warming. These models failed to predict a decade-long pause in global temperatures. Nor have various calamities that were supposed to have occurred by now materialized. And a recent paper published in another prestigious scientific journal, Nature, has also concluded that the planet is less sensitive to increases in CO2 than the computer models assume.

Of course the sky is falling, but maybe not as fast as is being predicted by the left-wing media. Beware of self-serving socialist projections based on outdated computer models, or sometimes just nothing at all. The notorious AOC and her ilk can get away with unprecedented levels of ignorance given the current state of American journalism as long as the errors are in the left direction. But any curious citizen can look back at what previous “experts” claimed was supposed to happen over the past half century and confirm just how erroneous and exaggerated their claims have been all along.

Over thirteen years ago, Al Gore declared the earth to be in a “true planetary emergency” with only a decade left to save the planet from global warming. The former vice president said, that “unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return.”

Gore’s movie, Inconvenient Truth, was found by a British judge to contain nine errors. The judge said it could not be shown to students unless it included a notice pointing out the errors. Here are nine of Al Gore’s guilt/fear producing predictions that never materialized.
  1. Rising Sea Levels Threatening Coastal Cities and Islands
  2. Increased Tornadoes
  3. New Ice Age in Europe
  4. South Sahara Drying Up
  5. Massive Flooding in China and India
  6. Drastic Loss of Arctic Ice
  7. Polar Bear Extinction
  8. Dramatic Rise in Global Temperature Due to CO2
  9. Katrina a Foreshadow of Future Increase in Hurricanes

Gore’s point of “no return” was back in 2016. Of course, his movie won an Oscar, and the hero of Hollywood was fast-tracked to becoming the first “carbon billionaire.” In just 7 years between 2000 and 2007, Gore’s assets soared 50-fold from an estimated $780,000–$1.9 million to “well in excess” of $100 million. Besides his hit movie, Gore used his climate panic lobbying to sway the government to invest in the economic sectors he was poised and ready to profit from. By 2008, Gore put $300 million into a campaign to promote climate fears while offering carbon reduction solutions that benefited the firms he was invested in. When the sympathetic Obama Administration introduced a “renewable energy” solution for the economy, fourteen of the tech firms Gore was invested in had received and/or benefited from over $2.5 billion in loans, grants, and tax breaks.

Democrats count on the public to forget each dire warning that they issue about the end of the world in ten years. Then ten years later they make the same predictions. And the shocking thing is that somehow the public does forget, or at least the Democrats do. As each new generation of American schoolchildren are indoctrinated to believe this doomsday prediction, they march to protest “climate inaction” and set out to save the planet.

The inconvenient truth for Gore, Obama, and the current crop of Democrat hopefuls is that there is no planetary emergency. Not one of their dire predictions has come to pass. Why do they and their multitude of followers continue to believe their doomsday prophecies in the face of 50 years of disconfirmation? It turns out that psychologists have a compelling explanation.

In the 1950s, psychologist Leon Festinger became intrigued with a news story about a doomsday cult led by Dorothy Martin, a suburban housewife who claimed she’d received messages about the impending flooding of the Earth. Festinger was already developing his theory of cognitive dissonance and recognized the situation as a unique laboratory to study what would happen when a deeply-held belief was disconfirmed. He saw this as a case that would lead to the arousal of dissonance when the prophecy inevitably failed. He thought that altering or denying the original belief would be very difficult, as Martin and her group were fiercely committed to it. For an excellent application of cognitive dissonance theory to the liberal mind, see here.

Thus began a unique observational study of this small apocalyptic cult that laid the foundation for one of the most influential psychological theories in the history of the field. Martin claimed to have received messages from “the Guardians,” a group of superior beings from another planet, who said a flood would destroy the world on December 21, 1954. Three psychologists and several more assistants joined the cult and observed proceedings firsthand for months before and after the predicted apocalypse. Many of the group members quit their jobs and disposed of their possessions in preparation for the apocalypse. When doomsday came and went, Martin claimed that the world had been spared because of the “force of good and light” that the group members had spread throughout the world. Rather than abandoning their discredited beliefs, group members adhered to them even more strongly and began proselytizing with fervor.

Festinger had predicted exactly this reaction. He argued that proselytizing provided a way for them to gain more social support and thus lessen the dissonance of disconfirmation. As Festinger wrote, “If more and more people can be persuaded that the system of belief is correct, then clearly it must after all be correct.” As he wrote in his classic book about the case, When Prophecy Fails, the group’s belief system did not just remain intact, it became even stronger.

This has close parallels with today’s climate alarmists who have been forecasting the end of the world as we know it in ten years and renewing that prophecy with more fervor with each passing decade since 1970. The pervasive cultural and institutional power held by the Democrat media (film, the talk show universe (whether morning, noon or late-night), TV news broadcasts, major newspapers and magazines, etc.) represent a particularly powerful form of social support. After all, if you are in a position of tremendous institutional or political power, then not only are you hugely confirmed by the colleagues who share your beliefs, but questioning them would threaten everything you hold dear: job, reputation, future career and social standing. Festinger paid special attention to this role the society plays in keeping dissonance at bay: “The more people who hold a belief in common with you, the greater the amount of consonance that is built up and the less dissonance that is encountered when there is a disagreement.”

The doomsday paradigm initiated by true believers on Earth Day in 1970 and echoed by multiple generations of Democrat leaders from Gore to Obama to the current “Green New Deal” continues to develop widening cracks as the ratrio of contradiction to reality increases. The cognitive dissonance caused by being on such intellectually shaky ground insures that this doomsday belief system will remain intact for the foreseeable future, producing more denial and dysfunctional thinking, more hysterical calls and campaigns for the moral exclusion of “climate deniers”, and more desperate measures against them.

If environmentalism restricted itself to truly caring for our natural resources, I would have no problem with it. However, with the secret science and questionable funding that these environmental groups possess taints the whole barrel. It turns out that many claims that environmentalists make have no basis in fact and are not based on good, honest, scientific investigation. This is why environmental scientists have to hide their data, as it does not fit their agenda. A good example of this is the so-called global warming crap, now renamed climate change. For one, the climate is always changing. The East Anglia emails in which data was purposely falsified by climate scientists comes to mind. Not only that, the climate scientists purposely installed temperature monitoring sensors in cities, contrary to manufacturers recommendations and good scientific practices, in asphalt-covered parking lots, and other heat sink areas in order to prove their (faulty) hypothesis. This is scientific dishonesty at its worst.
It turns out that the solar system is in a cooling cycle due to decreased solar activity. There are two long-term solar cycles that reinforce themselves when in phase and cancel themselves out when out-of-phase. Look up the Maunder minimum. There are no SUVs on Mars or other planets, yet they are also experiencing the same solar variability.
Environmentalism has been the method used to impose communist principles on western society, especially in the USA.
Environmentalists are not content with promoting clean water, air and land, but are hell-bent on controlling human behavior, and yes, promoting extermination plans for much of humanity as these anointed types consider mankind to be a pestilence (except for themselves) to be reduced in population by any means necessary.
Environmentalists HATE the God-given concept of private property and have imposed government-backed and enforced land use controls on private property owners without compensation, clearly an unconstitutional taking of private property. If environmentalists want to control land use, let them purchase it themselves, not by government force. Today the only method of negating government-imposed land use restrictions is shoot, shovel, and shut up.
If environmentalists had their way, the earth’s human population would be reduced by approximately 90%, with the remainder to (be forced) to live in cities, in soviet-style high rise apartments, utilizing bicycles, buses and trains for transportation. The use of automobiles and access to pristine wilderness (rural) areas would be off-limits to us mere mortals, and would only be available for these anointed environmentalists.
The endangered species act is another abuse of environmentalism. Species are always changing, to adapt to their environments-survival if the fittest. In fact, the hoopla over the spotted owl (that placed much northwest timber land off-limits to logging) turned out to be nothing but scientific misconduct and arrogance. There are virtually identical species in other parts of the northwest.
More scientific malpractice occurred when government biologists attempted to plant lynx fur in certain areas to provide an excuse for making those areas off-limits for logging or development. Fortunately, these scientists were caught, however, no punishment was imposed.
In order to promote the false religion of “global warming” aka “climate change”, NASA “scientists” purposely installed temperature sensors in city parking lots and roads contrary to good scientific principles and practices in order to “skew” the “global warming” results.
In a nutshell, today’s environmentalism IS communism like watermelon-green on the outside and red (communist) on the inside.
It is interesting to note that communist and third-world countries have the WORST environmental conditions on the planet. Instead of the USA and other developed countries spending billions to get rid of that last half-percent of pollution, it would behoove the communist countries to improve their conditions first. Here is a question for you environmentalists: Why is there a push for restrictive environmental regulations, but only on the developed first-world countries, and not the gross polluters such as India and China?
    Sophie Johnson says: Thank you, Dr Baggins! I wish there were at least half the number of replicas of you as there are vicious journalists and politicians pushing the global warming message. And it is not even just a message they are pushing. These servants of mega-criminals have an agenda. Just observe what has been happening in London: ‘Eco warriors’, i.e., dimwits by the several thousands who cavorted around in central London (‘dancing’, they call it), and brought the city to a standstill, were treated by police as loveable little angels. Who told the police to behave that way? What is there to love about cretins who jetted in (and thus brought off a major feat of earth pollution!) to browbeat us about our greenhouse-gassing lifestyles? And who paid them to perform their outsized circus act? Causers of much smaller nuisance than these fools ­ say, for instance, a few hundred Friends of Palestine protesting the latest atrocities Israel is inflicting upon the people of Gaza ­ would have been given no quarter by the police if they had stepped out of line in any way. Indeed, many of such a crowd of protesters would probably have been tragged off to prison and prosecuted for ‘hate crimes’. Soros comes to mind quite naturally. What does he, and what do his ilk, want to achieve with their false climate-change prophecies? It is certainly Soros et al. who are financing the huge crowd of you cretins’ jetting about the world to carry the message of our imminent demise in enormous numbers. What is the objective of Soros et al.? That is the great threat we are facing.


    Karlfried says:  The climate is very important. …..We should use energy, we should not waste energy. ….. Nonetheless, we, the white folks, have a number of tasks to do. ….. One thing is to use technological and sociological measurements to avoid excessive energy waste. ….. That is important, it is a task that needs much money, and much knowledge, both in the scientifical and in the sociological field, but it can be done. …. In Germany we are in the midst of that process…..We change our energy basis to different sources (and have done so since many decades)….The must trustful and cheap deliverers can sell us our needed important energy: formerly oil from Saudi Arabia, later oil and gas from Great Britain, Norway, Russia, USA …. Also we save energy in the housing area and we make our own wind electricity and biomass electricity. ….. We call it an energy-mix. ….. It is expensive, but the largest part of the machines and materials for that purpose are made in Germany, in our country itself. ….. So , if you see the whole picture, it costs us nothing than some work. …… It keeps our industry and researchers busy and it will lead our country into the future……It is a try and error game: We test and try many things and ways, some are good, some are bad. ….. So step by step, these things are being done. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Climate change maybe a danger or may even be an advantage (better yields in many areas of the world). …… Nonethelesse, climate change is not the only thing that we Germans have to think about. ….. Our largest problem in Germany, our problem number one: is the very high and still growing number of ….nonwhite.. noneuropean.. nonchristian (and/or non-wotan-believers….Wotan is the old god of the Germans)…..persons coming into our country, staying here and increasing their number both by babies and new such incomers. ….. It is an invasion that will kill us within few decades (within ten to twenty years). In theory that can be handeled easily: If 51% of the Germans will elect a political party that says: "Until here and no further. Go out of our country". Than within months the problem will be solved. In our neighbour-countries such parties have 20 to 30% of the votes and they might have more in the next elections.

    Denis Rancourt says: Love the article. Please, you must read my highly related report published this month: http://ocla.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/OCLA_Report_2019-1.pdf “Geo-Economics and Geo-Politics Drive Successive Eras of Predatory Globalization and Social Engineering: Historical emergence of climate change, gender equity, and anti-racism as State doctrines”, by Denis G. Rancourt, Ontario Civil Liberties Association, OCLA Report 2019-1, April 2019. Denis Rancourt, PhD Researcher, Ontario Civil Liberties Association (ocla.ca)

      Eric says: 1. Baggins article is salient – compelling. 2. Denis Rancourt, your excellent report makes compelling reading & I highly recommend it to any readers with a mind to comprehend & the heart to understand the true controlling interests that are seeking final domination of the worlds assets, including people as just another commodity to be exploited. A perfect update on the book “Report from Iron Mountain” (1966) – same philosophy & policy implementation to promote the current root of all evil agenda. Many thanks

        TJ says: That book could have been called Report from Steal Mountain.

        Peter Baggins says: Dear Dr. Rancourt, I greatly enjoyed reading Part 2 of your report and I agree that current social justice warriors are best viewed as members of a new activist religion. In Part 2 of my essay you will see how I explain the enduring quality of their “faith” in withstanding the repeated failures of their prophecies. Beginning with the succinct insight of Camus, writing in 1956: “Pour qui est seul, sans dieu et sans maître, le poids des jours est terrible. Il faut donc se choisir un maître, Dieu n’étant plus à la mode. “, you arrive at the conclusion that global warming has become one of the canons of a powerful state-religion – the others being gender equity and racial social justice. I can’t think of a trio of topics that have become more politically infested and deranged than these three. Let me share with the TOO audience one of your conclusions which I also endorse. These three “state doctrines followed a similar path … The government, scientific, academic, education, NGO, and media sectors embraced and promoted the new paradigms of global concern …There could never be enough climate change prevention, gender equity, or racial social justice; and all problems and risks were due to deficits in climate change prevention, gender equity, and racial social justice.” I wish you well in continuing your important work, which often must feel like “sweeping back the sea with a push broom”.

          Denis Rancourt says: Eric, and Dr. Baggins, Thank you both very much for reading and recommending my report. I’m finding it almost impossible to get popular intellectuals to look at it! Dr. Baggins, I’m loving your multi-part series. My many contributions to Climate “denial”, both scientific and political, are listed here, on my blog that Facebook blocked as “spam”: http://climateguy.blogspot.com/2014/02/denis-rancourt-on-climate-science.html Many of my social theory articles are here: https://dissidentvoice.org/author/DenisRancourt/ Cheers, DR

          Barkingmad says: “Our increased wealth and technological capacity to respond to natural disasters has greatly reduced our collective human climate vulnerability.” “The good news is that the impact that this greening has had in reducing hunger and starvation around the globe is undiminished, despite going unreported. When is the last time you heard a report of massive human starvation of hundreds of millions, or even tens of milions. How about 1 million … do I hear a hundred thousand, anyone? Anyone?” The earth is overpopulated. At some point technology will cease to work as you describe. Since when is mass starvation the only issue? Why are you making it look that way? There is nothing desirable about 100 billion people living cheek by jowl in 8 X 10 foot rooms in 30-story apartment buildings stretched as far as the eye can see, subsisting on lab-produced pellets synthesized from god-knows-what.* It has nothing to do with whether or not people area sucked into buying the climate change story. No wild spaces, no old forests, no wild animals left, no room to breathe and enjoy Creation. Just the beloved Human Species, social chaos, and lots of government offices making sure you all behave. More is better? Well, is it? Hint: those billions of people living like ants in ant hills won’t be White folks. Why are white people moving from inner cities to suburbs to exurbs to outright rural areas? And the few who can, run away to the hills and mountains. *Soylent Green, anyone? “The name of the product itself is a portmanteau of soy and lentil, which is what it’s made of in the book. Soylent Green is introduced as being made of plankton, but as the film unfolds, the main character discovers that it’s manufactured from dead bodies.”

            m___ says: Barkingmad says: “Our increased wealth a… ” Indeed, the whole issue is politicized, but real. First in assessment: toxicity, waste, pollution, what we call derivatives of what must go for progress. Battery chicken humanity, palm oil and corn syrup obesity, media junk, political junk. Imagine the cost of having an overpopulated globe in herding that blob of consumers to enrich (in the relative sense only), a tiny elite. Power play on a pile of dung. There is no such thing as quality of desire, long term goals, and as the second tier intellects here are whispered at: carry on as we go, our issue, is the only issue. Keep on the track! It is a scripted world we live in, and the script is made up as we go. Are there no real issues then, certainly, the dynamics of human populations, migrations, their absolute numbers are truly catastrophic. On the sole base of no question asked of why engineer a sophisticated global system to have humans with no added value in holding pens. Ridiculous article, not by pointing to the “hoax” of climate change, it’s political and media exploitation, but by lacking the suggestion as to where the interferable cores of the human long term future are located. The author is stark blind, or he is one more bread writer, selling dog food by the scoop. When one takes away the context of the problem, indeed the problem disappears. Oh my, one crackpot for another, anyhow, the “public”, the “reader” asks for more. Educating the masses requires some-one close enough to master the language of Joe.

              TJ says: This population increase is not from nature. Someone one wants it. A symptom of Keynesian pseudo-economics, unlimited paper money, Statism, jews, and so on. I did some analysis not too long ago- correlating the rise in the funny money with the population rise, especially the negro population. R=1.00. . . It seems we are all “nigger rich” as that horrible expression puts it. Picture: http://www.insiderzim.com/wp-content/uploads/Boy-with-zimnotes.jpg btw American “money” has the same metaphysical status as Zimbabwe “money”- economic nihilism.

              Muriel Kinsella says: How are governments across the globe pushing this narrative? I first got involved in the subject when I stumbled across Judith Curry’s work. It was an eye opener

                Peter Baggins, Ph.D. says: Hi Muriel, If you are reading Judith Curry, you are clearly on the right track. Governments, the UN, the Academy and all of the mainstream media are pushing this narrative. Peter Baggins Early runs of some next-generation climate models to be included in the next United Nations report predict way more warming than their predecessors. “These new climate model runs are basically gifts to skeptics, since they clearly reduce the credibility of the climate models for attributions of recent warming and also for 21st century projections,” climate scientist Judith Curry told The Daily Caller News Foundation. So far, at least eight of the 15 models have extremely high estimates of climate sensitivity. Climate sensitivity refers to the long-term warming from a doubling of carbon dioxide concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. The latest E3SM runs peg climate sensitivity at 5.3 degrees Celsius. That’s well outside the range of what the IPCC considers to be likely ­ which is somewhere between 1.5 and 4.5 degrees Celsius.

                Floda says: February 6, 1851 – Black Thursday In Australia The Melbourne Argus PROBABLY one of the most terrible days of which there is any record in Australian annals was Thursday, the 6th of February, 1851, commonly known as Black Thursday. But a small proportion of our present colonists have any recollection of that day, as our total population then only amounted to about 70,000 souls, against the 350,000 of to-day. But such of their number as have access to files of the newspaper published at the time, would do well to turn them over, and, as a warning for the future, glance at the narrative of the disasters of that dreadful day. We find it recorded that as early as seven or eight o’clock in the morning, the thermometer stood at 117° in the shade. At mid-day it sank to 109°, but in the afternoon it rose again, and at four o’clock was 113°. Monday last was about the hottest day of the present season ; yet the thermometer did not stand above 95° in the shade. Our readers who felt inconvenienced by the increase of heat between that and the usual 70° or 75° will have some difficulty in imagining the sensations produced by a still further rise of 20°. The intense heat of Black Thursday was not it’s only peculiarity. From early morning it was accompanied by a hot wind, almost of the strength of a hurricane, and throughout the day the surface of the country was exposed to the full power of it’s withering influence. Bush-fires raged across hundreds of miles of country, sweeping along with almost the rapidity of lightning, and destroying, nearly instantaneously, men, women, and children, crops and homesteads, fences and gardens, and vast quantities of cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, and fowls. From the whole land arose a cry of utter desolation.

                Charlie says: This narrative is FALSE because it DOES NOT address Human Overpopulation. It’s another scam 1. It’s total program is to make the negro destroyed inner cities “seem” cool to the dumb downed White snowflakes. 2. It demands all working class people flood back in to the ruined cities so that the elite can have their “natural” playgrounds restored for them to freely wander without the unwashed masses. This is so the elite can sport shoot wildlife with their pop guns from helicopters. 3. It demands barriers and insulation for the elite from the unwashed masses locked in to the ruined, violent, negro destroyed cities where the unwashed will be rape fodder for the savage brown races. milan says: “No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” said Obama. Sorry but for the initiated the threat, the real threat was and always will be sin that is the pollution of the human heart and character of mankind as defined by the biblical record. period! As for climate change one should read Gerry Fox’s book on the subject Climate Change the Work of God. In that unbelievable book one will find out very quickly that the bible has an enormous amount to teach on the subject. And the proofs WOW just wow. Carl Sagan’s view that extraordinary claims require extraordinary proofs is well spelled out in Fox’s book. and here for your reading pleasure just a small taste: “When I shoot at you with my deadly and destructive arrows of famine, I will shoot to destroy you. I will bring more and more famine upon you and cut off your supply of food. I will send famine and wild beasts against you, and they will leave you childless. Plague and bloodshed will sweep through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I the Lord have spoken.” (Ezekiel 5:16) “I also withheld rain from you when the harvest was still three months away. I sent rain on one town, but withheld it from another. One field had rain; another had none and dried up. People staggered from town to town for water but did not get enough to drink, yet you have not returned to me,” declares the Lord. “Many times I struck your gardens and vineyards, destroying them with blight and mildew. Locusts devoured your fig and olive trees, yet you have not returned to me,” declares the Lord. “I sent plagues among you as I did to Egypt. I killed your young men with the sword, along with your captured horses. I filled your nostrils with the stench of your camps, yet you have not returned to me,” declares the Lord. “I overthrew some of you as I overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. You were like a burning stick snatched from the fire, yet you have not returned to me,” declares the Lord. (Amos 4:7–11) The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, even if these three men­Noah, Daniel and Job­were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 14:12–14) Rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. When the wall collapses, will people not ask you, “Where is the whitewash you covered it with?” “Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. (Ezekiel 13:11–13) The Lord will cause people to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.” (Isaiah 30:30) RoyAlbrecht says: In Hamilton Ontario, the Jew-Limey-Masonic infested Spiritual Hell Hole into which I was born, circa the turn of the millennium, Earth Day was organized by a hyper-Crypto-Zionist, Canadian Polish-Jew, in philanthropic garb. (Name is irrelevant, but can be provided upon request) This particular Jew, who also operated a private recycling business as his main source of income had been an acquaintance of mine since middle school. He lived only a few blocks from me on the other side of the local synagogue, so to say that, “I knew him well”, would be an understatement. At one point, during the most destructive yet coordinated phase of my then (((attempting to be destroyed))) life, I was actually maneuvered into exchanging a space in his warehouse for providing all-round trouble shooting services. While there, I was busy scavenging through his skids of outdated desk top computers, monitors, printers, routers and other PC paraphernalia…, that he was paid to pick up on contract from the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board…, and rebuild them into usable internet surfing systems while studying computer-repair and programming basics through a correspondence school in the USA. After repairing, maxing-out and reselling “total functioning packages”, the remains were sent to a PC recycling plant owned by yet another Jew where the gold and other precious metals were extracted, before heading to yet the last Jew in the scrap metals recycling chain-of-disposal process. (In case it has not dawned upon the reader by now, almost the entire waste disposal industry throughout the West is largely oligopolized by Jews) We worked almost next to each other for over two years separated only by a very thin wall with a very large opening. I mention this only to demonstrate that not only did I know the man in charge of Earth-Day-Hamilton personally, (Pop. 1/2 a million people) but I was privy to many aspects of ALL his various…, (mis-)dealings. From what I gathered, Earth Day is above and beyond the aforementioned aspects in both comments and the essay itself, YET ANOTHER of the assorted means of keeping the masses preoccupied with trivialities so as to prevent them having the time or inclination to notice the 800 lbs. Jew-Satanic-Gorilla at the Helm (no offense to any real gorillas intended). Earth Day is particularly effective in this regard. It destroys traditional Aryan culture in that it offers points of “in-harmonious-(cognaitive)-dissonance”…, (not to be confused with “harmonic resonance” in something like, “Ave Maria”) of “..Multi-farious Misfits…” of every Jew Orchestrated, Anti-Kultura Movement imaginable. It has an especially pointed appeal towards children. An intellectual kaleidoscope of sensory distraction and mind warping propaganda wrapped in the garb of all-consuming, everlasting virtue. A masterpiece of Satanic intent by any measure of the Aryan Nationalist imagination. After all, what aspect of existence does not in some way involve “…waste…” ? If one can (((oligopolize))) the concept of and means of waste’s (((“…virtuous disposal…”))), combine it with (((SJW-supporters))) of every stripe imaginable, and wrap it in a Colourful and Harmonious package of Diversity, Tolerance and Hatred of Racist, Anti-Semitic Nazïsm, by the end of primary school if your children are not openly rebelling against you, you have done something correctly. Earth day is a kind of children’s training ground in preparation for a smooth transition into mega-fecal-festivals like Woodstock, Glastonbury and Roskilde.

                  Chalie says: CSI Leasing an example of the Joo dominated computer waste cycle. Lease (not sell) the goyish computers then take back the worn out junk and resell it through their subsidiary EPC (Executive Personal Computers) and then dismantle and recycle what can be resold for the metals and then pay a goyish hillbilly under the table to dump the remainder in a waterway somewhere so as to destroy the evidence and connection to the joo.

                  NOTES TO PART 2
                    anarchyst says:

                    If environmentalism restricted itself to truly caring for our natural resources, I would have no problem with it. However, with the secret science and questionable funding that these environmental groups possess taints the whole barrel. It turns out that many claims that environmentalists make have no basis in fact and are not based on good, honest, scientific investigation. This is why environmental scientists have to hide their data, as it does not fit their agenda. A good example of this is the so-called global warming crap, now renamed climate change. For one, the climate is always changing. The East Anglia emails in which data was purposely falsified by climate scientists comes to mind. Not only that, the climate scientists purposely installed temperature monitoring sensors in cities, contrary to manufacturers recommendations and good scientific practices, in asphalt-covered parking lots, and other heat sink areas in order to prove their (faulty) hypothesis. This is scientific dishonesty at its worst. It turns out that the solar system is in a cooling cycle due to decreased solar activity. There are two long-term solar cycles that reinforce themselves when in phase and cancel themselves out when out-of-phase. Look up the Maunder minimum. There are no SUVs on Mars or other planets, yet they are also experiencing the same solar variability. Environmentalism has been the method used to impose communist principles on western society, especially in the USA. Environmentalists are not content with promoting clean water, air and land, but are hell-bent on controlling human behavior, and yes, promoting extermination plans for much of humanity as these anointed types consider mankind to be a pestilence (except for themselves) to be reduced in population by any means necessary. Environmentalists HATE the God-given concept of private property and have imposed government-backed and enforced land use controls on private property owners without compensation, clearly an unconstitutional taking of private property. If environmentalists want to control land use, let them purchase it themselves, not by government force. Today the only method of negating government-imposed land use restrictions is shoot, shovel, and shut up. If environmentalists had their way, the earth’s human population would be reduced by approximately 90%, with the remainder to (be forced) to live in cities, in soviet-style high rise apartments, utilizing bicycles, buses and trains for transportation. The use of automobiles and access to pristine wilderness (rural) areas would be off-limits to us mere mortals, and would only be available for these anointed environmentalists. The endangered species act is another abuse of environmentalism. Species are always changing, to adapt to their environments-survival if the fittest. In fact, the hoopla over the spotted owl (that placed much northwest timber land off-limits to logging) turned out to be nothing but scientific misconduct and arrogance. There are virtually identical species in other parts of the northwest. More scientific malpractice occurred when government biologists attempted to plant lynx fur in certain areas to provide an excuse for making those areas off-limits for logging or development. Fortunately, these scientists were caught, however, no punishment was imposed. In order to promote the false religion of “global warming” aka “climate change”, NASA “scientists” purposely installed temperature sensors in city parking lots and roads contrary to good scientific principles and practices in order to “skew” the “global warming” results. In a nutshell, today’s environmentalism IS communism like watermelon-green on the outside and red (communist) on the inside. It is interesting to note that communist and third-world countries have the WORST environmental conditions on the planet. Instead of the USA and other developed countries spending billions to get rid of that last half-percent of pollution, it would behoove the communist countries to improve their conditions first. Here is a question for you environmentalists: Why is there a push for restrictive environmental regulations, but only on the developed first-world countries, and not the gross polluters such as India and China?

                    alan says: Dr. Baggins is very generous in granting and allowing ‘the left’ the benevolence of ‘ignorance’, malleability and being easily persuaded to embrace stupidity. I am not as gracious with the left as Dr. Baggins. I do grant and accept the notion that their irrational stupidity is an easy target, but these people and their owners have always associated ‘panic’ with a source of easy income. Let’s face it; stealing beats working. The now famous quote from parasite Rahm Emanuel is their ‘sacred creed’. “Never let a crisis pass before extracting the maximum amount of profit”. That is my paraphrase, but you get the gist. Gore was a master at this. Bush (W) was too stupid to be anything other than ‘bush’, but the Clintons, the Gores, the McCains and McConnells and Obamas of this vulnerable experiment we call a ‘constitutional republic’, and all of the handlers of the ilk mentioned above and their progeny and predecessors, have only one agenda; global control of everything that ensures the position of money control, and power distribution. They have no other agenda. Their agenda is their only ‘god’. And the ‘corporate leadership’ of this agenda is none other than the parasite money cabal, owned and operated by the zio-rothschild entity, solidly encamped in City of London and Washington DC, and in New York, that wonderful place that the Jews happily refer to as ‘New Jerusalem’. We must stop coddling these cancers in our midst, and begin to expose them for what they are, and apply the only effective remedy for this corrosive disease. Excise the tumors, and throw them out!

                      Deep North says: Environmentalist are worried over a small increase global temperatures. They wish to drastically alter our way of life to prevent this. What happens if global temperatures cool? Will they want humanity to increase the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere? This amounts to regulating the climate over several decades if not centuries. Are we to believe this is possible? These are very abstract concepts that general public could care less for. The elites should be focusing on overfishing, plastics in the ocean, deforestation and the ever increasing suburban sprawl among other things. The Third World needs to understand that natural resources aren’t unlimited and should check their population growth.

                        Charles Frey says: Decades ago, some of us conspiracy freaks found out about the US Army [ weaponizing ] Weather Modification Program in Alaska. A subsequent, televised investigative one hour piece by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation metamorphosed us freaks into the omniscient. Google PROJECT HARP. Luckily, the funding public and US enemies du jour have been ‘ reliably ‘ informed, by the ever transparent Pentagon [ 9/11 CFO; Rabbi – son of Rabbi, Dove Zakheim ] that this Project was cancelled. Or, far more likely, transferred to the DOD’s DARPA under Steven H. Walker and a shiny new deodorized acronym. All of its ‘ accomplishments ‘ will have been passed, gratis, to Israeli Intelligence Collection and been incorporated into its Policy, before Washington even files it. As soon as a method for a localized drought in Iran, Syria, Turkey, Russia or even the EU, can be induced. Far more effective than blocking all oil sales and US rationalized confiscation/unmitigated theft of billions in gold from accounts unwisely deposited in GB, that other sharer of our [?] trumpeted common Western Values. Keeping the essential, raison d’état multiply-profitable caldron of ISIS topped up and bubbling – its fire, coincidentally fueled by Christians.

                            Trenchant says: As I understand it, solar activity affects cloud formation and this, in turn, terrestrial climate. Check out “The Cloud Mystery” on YouTube. https://phys.org/news/2016-08-solar-impact-earth-cloud.html

                            Robert Dolan says: Sadly, the environmental movement has become nothing more than high level jewing. I used to be an environmentalist and I used to give to all the groups. I finally discovered that the entire movement is connected to globalism, the UN, Agenda 21, etc. Major jewing. I gave to the Sierra Club for many years until a jewish donor convinced them to sellout on immigration. The bastards sent me an email asking me to march with them to give amnesty for illegals. I called their office and screamed at them and told them to go to hell. I was furious and wounded by that betrayal. I no longer give to any environmental orgs.

                              TJ says: I used to be an environmentalist- now I love smog. It was David Gelbaum who gave the Sierra Club [Carl Pope] One Hundred Million Jewish Federal Reserve Notes, in exchange for the Club not mentioning immigration.

                                TJ says: Before the Pope was bought off, the Sierra Club held the [correct] position that mexicans [mestizos, not Whites] are a form of pollution.
