Slow learners

The AGW/CC crowd is still doubling down on their global warming theme, despite being literally trapped in the expanding ice.
Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
At this point, one begins to suspect that they won't change their tune until they're actually being hunted down by the wild polar bears roaming Los Angeles.

Have they no consideration for the hungry polar bears? Don't they care enough to reduce their carbon footprint, stop using diesel fueled boats, and become beat scat for the good of the planet? For no greater love hath a man than to layth down his life for the Earth.

Right when we reached peak "Global Warming", and right before its transition surgery to "climate change", there was talk about the inevitable polar bear migration and the resulting interracial bear unions between grizzly bears and polar bears. Sensationalist articles were published hypothesizing the arrival of the Pizzly Bear - feared for its hybrid vigor, its aggression, and its desirable fur. The Pizzly was briefly a latent talking point to legitimize a multicultural America. In hindsight, it is hilarious.

Wild polar bears in L.A. could easily be explained away. They already have an "everything that happens is Climate Whatever" mindset.

Drop off extra heating oil, coats, supplies, whatever is needed, no rescues. Give them time to think about it. Hopefully out of reach of phone service, mobile data, etc. Absolute misery for phone addicts, but amplified time to think about it. Then again, they might snap, being that they're already close.

Blogger Jack Ward September 09, 2019 9:41 PM  

Pay attention! The solar minimum, this time around, is shaping up to be...interesting. Like little ice age interesting; or worse. We really are overdue for a major pole switch and the next glacial. And, it can happen quite quickly. Particularly if there is an assist from an asteroid minding its own business and running into the planet. Or, Yellowstone, which is also overdue, pops the big one. Mount St.Helen would be embarrassed. David the Good might become one of the most valuable people on Planet Earth. And, David is now living in one of the sweet spots to survive all this ice age stuff. Can you imagine central America becoming comfortably moderate temps wise? With real winters and summers?

And the modelers have no clothes:

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/09/07/propagation-of-error-and-the-reliability-of-global-air-temperature-projections-mark-ii/

In my prior experience, climate modelers:

· did not know to distinguish between accuracy and precision.

· did not understand that, for example, a ±15 C temperature uncertainty is not a physical temperature.

· did not realize that deriving a ±15 C uncertainty to condition a projected temperature does *not* mean the model itself is oscillating rapidly between icehouse and greenhouse climate predictions (an actual reviewer objection).

· confronted standard error propagation as a foreign concept.

· did not understand the significance or impact of a calibration experiment.

· did not understand the concept of instrumental or model resolution or that it has empirical limits

· did not understand physical error analysis at all.

· did not realize that ‘±n’ is not ‘+n.’

Maurice Strong is the communist who invented the hoax of Global Warming.

Go down the rabbit hole of Strong and his cousin, Anna Louise Strong.

It's a case for Miles Mathis, but budding Miles Mathises can search for both those names + jewish.

No one ever talks about the science of climate change it's only always the rhetoric.

No one who believes in climate change/AGW/climate chaos or whatever they call it now actually understands the science behind it. They only know that climate scientists say so. They know they're making a difference. They know that even if they lie, cheat or do despicable deeds it's for the proverbial good. They are on the right side on History as written by Netflix and CNN. They know they are the enlightened as they follow orders and repeat by rote the same drivel.

One of my supervisors at work listens to a podcast regularly called Skeptoid, with a guy called Brian Dunning (who by the way is a convicted felon).

Dunning recently had an episode about "Science Deniers" and kept trying to use ACC/GW as one of his examples. One of which was that "deniers" frequently use Physicists and Mathematicians and Chemists and Computer Scientists as examples of scientists who dissent from the ACC/GW hypothesis instead of Climate Scientists.

Because only prophets of the Climate Change Myth can correctly interpret the esoteric Climate Scriptures. Or something. Damn your expertise with math and data collection and computer languages which allow you to see the errors in the modeling.

Yes. One of the ways they deal with any evidence that AGW/CC may be in doubt is that they have accepted the notion that in SOME way mankind is destroying Earth. So no matter what the immediate truth is, we have to constrain mankind to avoid the inevitable destruction. And so the ends justify the means, no matter what.

Of course one of the consequences of their blind insanity is that they make sane people reflexively oppose them, and so we get a completely binary discussion of the ecological issues. The "right" mostly advocates balls to the wall economic "progress" because they couldn't possibly agree with the greenies on anything. Despite a personal queasiness about pollution issues, for example.

It's all a big racket. Hundreds of millions of dollars in funding from the the government and Fortune 500 businesses goes to these organizations and universities who promote these falsehoods. Now when applying for the grants they have to make the case for AGW/CC so they can go on their deviancy cruise to the North Pole or wherever it is they go (hopefully to hell one day) to gather their false data and incorporate it into ever whatever is the cause de jour. Like most scientific studies whoever pays the piper calls the tune. THIS is why they will never ever tell the truth which is that weather changes are not due to modernity but are a natural consequence of living on a violent planet.

The racket is no joke. Check out the numbers from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change alone(11.2 billion over 15 years):

https://climatefundsupdate.org/publications/climate-finance-thematic-briefing-adaptation-finance-2018/

I recall Vox saying something about how AGW/CC alarmists are just grant-seeking scientists being used to justify global government. The UNFCCC has plenty of smoking guns in that regard...

Dedicated AGW cultists will never change. Recall that early Christians believed Christ's return was imminent...2000 years ago. The fact that he didn't show hasn't shaken the truly faithful.

Of course, comparing the pseudo-science communists to Christians is silly. The former are knaves or fools who desire nothing but dominion over their fellowmen. The latter are concerned with the fate of their own souls.

Blogger dc.sunsets September 10, 2019 8:25 AM  

Everybody believes something.

As people in the West turned their backs on Christianity, pagan religions returned (mixed with Cargo Cultism.) Add the underlying belief that resources are no longer limited, and you have a recipe for murderous zealotry...and that's exactly what we see, from the pseudo-religion of communism to climatism and equalism. A real religion deals with that which cannot be seen. Pseudo-religions ultimately concern themselves with Lenin's famous dictum: "Who/whom? Who is doing what to whom?"

i note that the series for Global Temperature starts ... in 1884. ie - the end of The Little Ice Age.

i would be frankly shocked if the 'time machine' didn't demonstrate warming from that. and i sure as hell would not want to live near the Great Lakes prior to 1900.

if the series started at the beginning of the Medieval Climatic Optimum, it might have something interesting to show.

I've lost count of how many of these abortive expeditions we've had, where they go to document the disappearing ice only to be overwhelmed by ice. We've probably spent more money rescuing these fools than they've spent imperiling themselves.

Considering that the USAF and others have consulted some "climate change" expert regarding the timing of rescue missions before, perhaps they should simply look at his past statements. Since he and Al Gore have stated in the past that the Arctic passage would be clear of ice in 2016, simply tell them to stop whining, the ice will be gone any time now. No need to add to the carbon pollution and further destruction of the ice by sending a rescue expedition. Be kind to mother Earth, dang it!
