‘Global warming’ ‘Climate Change’ to Get Rebranding? 

What would it take for these supposedly educated fools to learn how to investigate such claims for themselves, to actually go about reading things that take a different view from the ones they hear all the time for which there is not an ounce of evidence? If they did do that, I would consider them actually educatable. As they are, they are just conformist nongs without a thought of their own.

But whatever blood may be on whichever hands, that blood is running a bit cold at the moment. It’s all part of the marketing plans these morons think is needed to get their message across about how the planet is heating, or cooling, or whatever it is doing that fits the narrative.

These are the kinds of sophisticates who in my time used to think Uri Geller could bend spoons with the power of his mind. Although equally nonsensical, it did not endanger their own future or their future prosperity.

    1984 ‘new speak’ keep inventing other meanings.

  2. They won’t learn until they get what they wish for, but when the cars can’t refuel, the tablets and phones can’t recharge and they are sitting in the dark and cold.

    Then they will learn and not before.

    No, that’s when they get REALLY feral.

    This is basically just latter day bobby-soxers.

    Every time you see one of these mobs, it’s predominantly girls – with a small sprinkling of insipid boys, most of whom who look like they’re just filling in time until they become Greens staffers and/or candidates.

    No, it will be the fault of capitalists, conservatives, Christians, white supremacists, homophobes, misogynists, IsIamophobes, transphobes etc.

    Imagine how we simpletons thought that, as we got richer and more “sophisticated”, we would become wiser and less prone to dumb propaganda.

    We have made fools of ourselves — all because of self-hatred.

    Grand Solar Minimum
    Cold and dry.
    Shortened growing season.
    Crops will be subject to frost damage and cold-diseases.
    There will be famines.
    Invest in poly-tunnels.

    With his incredible psychokinesis and telepathic powers Uri Geller could have brought World peace, solved World poverty, cured cancer, demonstrated nuclear fusion, even stopped climate change and all he did was bend spoons.

    Here’s my explanation: I blame the bomb.

    Allow me to go into detail … technology is what people do, and what people have always done. Over time we got good at it, because the empirical “Scientific Method” really works. It works exponentially … as you get good at one thing, the other parts become easier and power builds upon power.

    However, as technology put new luxury goods into the hands of the common man, it also put horrific weapons into the hands of the military and continues to do so. The “Boomer” generation is the first that lived all their lives under the shadow of global nuclear annihilation, as has every generation thereafter. Finally they came to the (possibly logical) concept that technology is bad, because technology cannot be trusted not to kill them. The next step is to destroy empiricism itself and destroy science as well.

    Now, how to destroy science? It’s difficult to fight an idea … you can’t kill an idea with a knife or a gun … the idea lives in people’s heads so you must move your battle into people’s heads. Fill their heads with shit … push the science out, and bury it in noise. That’s how you fight an idea.

    It won’t work of course, but that seems to be the strategy. Sad to see nice kids becoming the fodder.

    San Francisco breaks cold record as Bay Area freezes…

    Should make it easier to clean the faeces off the streets. If they ever bother.

    I’d have more respect for the thermageddonists if they would debate the science. But they hide, wimp out at the last moment, go full lawfare and are generally obnoxious. Probably because they know themselves the data doesn’t support their position.

  15. Tel

    They won’t learn until they get what they wish for, but when the cars can’t refuel, the tablets and phones can’t recharge and they are sitting in the dark and cold.

    You can be 100% sure there are a bunch of people crouched and ready to blame Capitalism, blame Neoliberalism … blame everyone else for the things they caused. It’s standard Leftist strategy.

    “The planet’s blood..”

    ..
    Is that, like, lava?
    Because having that on your hands would bloody hurt.

  17. Arky

    Hath not a planet hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?

  18. Oh come on

    Glenn Reynolds labels them credentialed rather than educated. It’s a more accurate adjective, for certain.

    ‘These are the kinds of sophisticates who in my time used to think Uri Geller could bend spoons with the power of his mind.’
    The left, and statists more generally, have managed to harness this tendency towards insane belief. A remarkable achievement. Their success depends upon a deference to authority backed by infinite repetition, and the left’s specialty, threats of extreme aggression against dissenters. This particular belief system harnesses end-of-the-world tendencies, original sin, scientific ignorance, and a voluntary media.
    We who object need to lift our game by orders of magnitude.

    Maybe we found one college kid that discovered something other kids are too dumb to consider.
    Western Population stagnation = higher immigration = nasty effects?
    Even for Australia

  21. yarpos

    The sign is funny. “The Educated” from a group that will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid actually learning anything about the topic, preferring memes and slogans. You scratch beyond the superficial and they are usually clueless.

  22. Gyro Cadiz

    Liars gonna lie.
    Scammers gonna scam.

  23. Chris M

    I forgave the blond one. Besides we all did crazy things as kids. Education system + media is a super messed up mechanism intended to produce this stuff.

  24. egg_

    Sounds more like Dumb & Dumber with their tongues frozen to steel than Luigi the Unbelievable benda-da-bloody-spoon.

  25. struth

    History shows us they do not learn.
    They start killing the ones they blame.
    These children have been brainwashed by Western hating Marxists in our schools.
    Anyone blaming these children may wish to grow up themselves.

    It all starts in our schools………and nobody is willing to confront the filth in our education system doing this.
    No one is holding them accountable so what does anyone expect to be happening?

  26. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Tintarella, on this site, has invented a wonderful term for such ‘education’:

    These deluded young girls and most schoolchildren today are ‘severely educated’.

    Left wing activist declared insane and not fit to stand trial for his actions.

    That’s what UC Berkeley is turning out these days … angry at the white supremacists, angry at climate change, member of every special interest victim group you care to name … oh and homicidal.

    It all starts in our schools………and nobody is willing to confront the filth in our education system doing this.
    No one is holding them accountable so what does anyone expect to be happening?

    Perhaps offer some meaningful alternatives to the Marxism in schools? At least get material out there to help kids understand they are being manipulated and used.

  28. struth

    The problem is their parents were also brainwashed.
    This has been going on ever increasing since I was in school and I’m 52.

    Watch: John Stossel Destroys Climate Change Myths in Terrific Video

    John Stossel is just so great at debunking myths.

    This past week, he took on the myths surrounding climate change in a terrific video.

    Stossel invited climate change activists to a debate at the Heartland Institute.

    Small problem? They didn’t show up. As Stossel notes, climate change folks like Al Gore never show up to his invitations.

    Scientists did show up to debunk some of the common myths being pushed by folks like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other extremists.

    Stossel noted how over the years he’d covered so many scares that had turned out not to be what people claimed, that in fact, we’re living longer than ever.

    Yet the alarmists like Greta Thunberg say “entire ecosystems are collapsing” and we are on the brink of “mass extinction.” Politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and former Vice President Joe Biden proclaim, “We have 12 years years left.”

    The scientists took on that myth. “Please, let’s have a discussion!” begged astrophysicist Willie Soon.

    Pat Michaels, former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, dissected the 12 year/extinction claim. “It’s warmed up around one degree Celsius since 1900, and life expectancy doubled, yet that temperature ticks up another half a degree and the entire system crashes? That’s the most absurd belief.”

    And what happens when in all likelihood we’re all still here in pretty much the same condition in 12 years?

    Climatology Professor David Legates predicted, “In twelve years it’ll be 12 more years.”

    Exactly. How long has this been going on? Since at least the 1970s when folks pushed the spurious claim we might be entering a new ice age.

    Willie Soon said it was all about emotional handwaving.

    But, as the scientists explained, we adapt and address conditions. That’s the human way.

    Stossel asked the scientists, “You acknowledge though the water is rising?”

    Legates agreed. “Yes, the water has been rising for approximately 20,000 years.” Alrighty, now.

    The scientists also debunked “global warming is making storms worse” and that carbon dioxide is only a harm both of which they pointed out are wrong.

    Another myth? Government can somehow save us.

    “The Obama’s administration’s model projects that the amount of global warming that would be saved going to zero emissions tomorrow … would be 14 hundredths of a degree Celsius,” according to Michaels.

    An insignificant difference for global warning. But a killer for the country. “You’ll sure have an impoverished dark country,” he said.

    But, as Stossel observes, the other side doesn’t want to debate, they just want to impose their will, without question.

    So why are politicians so eager to push all this on us? One word: control.

    “It all starts in our schools………and nobody is willing to confront the filth in our education system doing this.”

    The most woke universities in the US are now suggesting that entrance exams will be dropped because they are discriminatory to minorities. I’m serious, and so are they.
    We have gone from protests against “the man” to protesting in favour of “the man” – from wanting freedom, to wanting conformity. When the inevitable damage reaches critical, the backlash will be long, loud, ugly and go way too far. It won’t be the “deniers’ against the wall either…

    What would it take for these supposedly educated fools to learn how to investigate such claims for themselves, to actually go about reading things that take a different view from the ones they hear all the time for which there is not an ounce of evidence?

    Educated fools? You mean people that have a consistent view of what a government should do and why?
    Different view? What would that be?

    Setting aside that conservatives were largely responsible for building the environmentalist bureaucracies the world over, meaning you have no credibility in your sudden opposition to it since about 2008 anyway, what IS your different view?

    At no point have conservatives provided an alternative and consistent view of what a government should do and why to that of environmentalists.

    The greenies are wrong and evil, but you have nothing to counter them with…

  32. Mark M

    At no point have conservatives provided an alternative and consistent view of what a government should do and why to that of environmentalists.”

    Conservative or not, the ” alternative and consistent view” is to do nothing because it is a scam.

    One thing is for sure, over 100% of climate zombies prefer protest signs created from 100% fossil-fuels.

  33. struth

    Iampoyda.
    You believe anyone who calls themselve conservative is conservative.
    You also believe these godless morons are the only ones who can think logically.
    You are a buffoon.
    You judge the world as the simplistic collectivist you are.
    No wonder you are confused.
    And god knows we’ve tried but you are beyond reason and help.

  34. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Weather obsessed ignorant illiterate innumerate anti-scientific ahistorical idiots.

    Exactly the sort of imbeciles responsible for Idiocracy now looking like a documentary instead of the satire it originally was.

  35. Iampeter

    Conservative or not, the ” alternative and consistent view” is to do nothing because it is a scam.

    Right, which is not an alternative view. It just shows what you’re against not explain what you are for instead.
    To have an alternative view would require understanding and support for individual rights, rights-protecting government and capitalism. Conservatives don’t understand nor support these concepts.
    Even if they did muster some kind of response, they would then have to explain why they didn’t do so during the Howard years when it would’ve done the most good.
    So there’s no way forward for conservatives on this issue. Or on any issues really. It’s over.

    You believe anyone who calls themselve conservative is conservative.

    No, I believe politically illiterate, religious and nationalist collectivists, are conservatives, precisely because I don’t view the world as “the simplistic collectivist that YOU are.”

    You also believe these godless morons are the only ones who can think logically.

    Kinda proving my point there, Mohammad Atta.

    I look forward to your next response, struth. I’m sure it’ll prove my point even more as you rant, rave, evade and project.

    Hey, maybe you and your buddies should move to the Middle East. You’ll be happier there than in the West which you neither understand nor support. No “godless fools” there to bother you.

  37. struth

    No, I believe politically illiterate, religious and nationalist collectivists, are conservatives,

    Well, then, as I said, you are a buffoon.

    It is that simple.

  38. Iampeter

    Well, then, as I said, you are a buffoon.

    It is that simple.

    But you called me a “godless moron” just like a religious collectivist would.
    Not to mention that you have no knowledge of politics and have never put forward any individualist or political argument. You didn’t even know basics like politic is about individualism vs collectivism until you learnt it from me.

    All you have is religious and nationalist collectivism. As do most conservatives.

    Calling it correctly does not make one a “buffoon.”

    I know it’s a stock image but the preponderance of young women (and not so young sometimes) who are beholden to the Gaia cult is , frankly, scary.
