Democratic States Deploy Greta Thunberg Drones To Lecture People Who Go Outside

U.S.—Several Democrat-controlled states have released new Greta Thunberg surveillance drones into the wild to lecture people who go outside.

The drones include a camera to catch people going outside and a screen playing a Greta Thunberg lecture. They fly along beaches and hover over parks, shouting and chasing off people who try to have a little fun or live without fear.

“How dare you! You are robbing me of my dreams and my childhood!”

one drone shouted at a couple hanging out on a California beach, though they were hundreds of feet away from anyone else.

“You have stolen everything from me! EVERYTHING!”

Some models of the drones are also equipped with tasers that shock people and chase them back into their homes while Greta warns about global warming, coronavirus fears, and the need to submit to the coming one-world government.

“I am an expert! Fear me! Listen to me about everything!”

The number of drones being shot out of the sky has gone way up in most of these states, except in California where you can’t buy guns and ammo.

German Farmers Block Hamburg In Revolt Against Globalist Environmental Regulations

German farmers are blocking roads in Hamburg with their tractors to protest against environment regulations as the rural revolt against globalism spreads across Europe.

4,000 tractors arrived in Hamburg yesterday in a massive rebuke to what protesters assert is government bullying amidst efforts to impose Green New Deal-style control measures.

Placards displayed on the tractors included one that read, “No farm, no food, no future,” with farmers expressing their fury at being blamed while their contribution to the economy is ignored and ministers refuse to engage in dialogue with them.

“The rules, which are coming from the German government, are so hard for us that we can’t work on our farms,” Klaus-Peter Lucht, Vice President of the regional Farmers Association, told RT.

“We can’t make good crops. We can’t have good fodder for the dairy [cows].”

The kilometer long convoys of tractors caused “considerable traffic disruption” across the city, according to authorities.

Hamburg is just the latest site of a rural revolt against globalism that is sweeping Europe.

Last month, thousands of Dutch farmers descended on the Netherlands capital to protest against a government proposal that livestock production be slashed by up to 50% in the name of preventing global warming.

Demonstrators were angry that the same restrictions they may be hit with will not apply to the aviation industry.

The Yellow Vest movement in France, which is set to mark its first anniversary this weekend, also began as a backlash against onerous gas tax hikes and other regulations impacting rural workers.

Global Warming Goodness Slays Drought In South West

A Strong Start to Sierra Snowpack

https://eoimages.gsfc.nasa.gov/images/imagerecords/144000/144552/sierra_tmo_2019042.jpgFebruary 15, 2018 – February 11, 2019

In Spanish, Sierra Nevada means “snowy mountain range.” During the past few months, the range has certainly lived up to its name. After a dry spell in December, a succession of storms in January and February 2019 blanketed the range.

In many areas, snow reports have been coming in feet not inches. Back-to-back storms in February dropped eleven feet (3 meters) of snow on Mammoth Mountain—enough to make it the snowiest ski resort in the United States. More than 37 feet (11 meters) have fallen at the resort since the beginning of winter, and meteorologists are forecasting that yet another storm will bring snow this week.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquired these natural-color images of the Sierra Nevada on February 11, 2019, and February 15, 2018. In addition to the much more extensive snow cover in 2019, notice the greener landscape on the western slopes of the range.

Statistics complied by the California Department of Water Resources indicate that the mountain range had a snow water equivalent that was 146 percent of normal as of February 19, 2019. It was just 44 percent of normal on Thanksgiving 2018. Last season, on February 15, 2018, snow cover was at a mere 21 percent of normal.

Some of the snow has come courtesy of atmospheric rivers, a type of storm system known for transporting narrow, low-level plumes of moisture across long ocean distances and dumping tremendous amounts of precipitation on land.

The condition of Sierra Nevada snowpack has consequences that go well beyond ski season. Spring and summer melt from the Sierra Nevada plays a crucial role in recharging California’s reservoirs. Though conditions could change, California drought watchers are cautiously optimistic that the boost to the snowpack will insulate the state from drought this summer.

The reservoirs are already in pretty good shape. Cal Water data show that most of the reservoirs are already more than half-full, and several have water levels that are above the historical average for the middle of February.

Harvard Study Shows Oceans Are Getting Colder

https://d33wjekvz3zs1a.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/New-Ice-Age.jpg

(Armstrong Economics) This winter, 2019 is once again extremely brutal in Europe. Exceptionally heavy snow has fallen as far south as Greece in the range of even 3 to 5 feet in various places. This is the third year of extreme cold in Europe which has been fueling more resentment about global warming taxes. Once again, Europe has been thrown into economic chaos for much of the region is not able to cope with snow lacking the historical experience. In places like Germany, the jet stream exaggerations have cause exceptionally hot summers, though shorter in duration, where hotels and houses never bothered installing air conditioning. This is the typical pattern that is serious for it also precedes droughts.

Meanwhile, scientists have revealed that the oceans are still getting colder at deeper levels in a slow-moving trend that was set in motion by the last Little Ice Age. The idea that the oceans have been retaining the heat so that is why the planet has not warmed up as forecast 30 years ago flies in the face of those ideas as well.


The ‘Little Ice Age’ hundreds of years ago is STILL cooling the bottom of Pacific, researchers find

  • The Little Ice Age brought colder-than-average temps around the 17th century
  • Researchers say temperatures in deep Pacific lag behind those at the surface
  • As a result, parts of the deep Pacific is now cooling from long ago Little Ice Age

As much of the ocean responds to the rising temperatures of today’s world, the deep, dark waters at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean appear to be doing the exact opposite.

A Harvard study has found that parts of the deep Pacific may be getting cooler as the result of a climate phenomenon that occurred hundreds of years ago.

Around the 17th century, Earth experienced a prolonged cooling period dubbed the Little Ice Age that brought chillier-than-average temperatures to much of the Northern Hemisphere.

Though it’s been centuries since this all played out, researchers say the deep Pacific appears to lag behind the waters closer to the surface, and is still responding to the Little Ice Age.

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/01/04/18/8135376-6558285-image-a-18_1546625203152.jpgA Harvard study has found that parts of the deep Pacific may be getting cooler as the result of a climate phenomenon that occurred hundreds of years ago. The models suggest In the deep temperatures are dropping at a depth of around 2 kilometers (1.2 miles)

‘Climate varies across all timescales,’ said Peter Huybers, a professor at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

‘Some regional warming and cooling patterns, like the Little Ice Age and Medieval Warm Period, are well known.

‘Our goal was to develop a model of how the interior properties of the ocean respond to changes in surface climate.’

The Medieval Warm Period was a period lasting between the 9th and 12th centuries during which Earth’s climate leaned on the warmer side.

It was followed not long after by the Little Ice Age, which lasted from the 16th through 19th century, though some argue it began even earlier.

According to researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Harvard University, this long-ago cooling period could still be showing its face in the temperatures of the deep ocean.

‘If the surface ocean was generally cooling for the better part of the last millennium, those parts of the ocean most isolated from modern warming may still be cooling,’ said Jake Gebbie, a physical oceanographer at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

To test this, the team compared measurements taken during the 1870s by scientists on the HMS Challenger to modern data.

During the study in the late 1800s, the researchers of the time dropped thermometers deep down into the ocean between 1872 and 1876, collecting more than 5,000 measurements in total.

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/01/04/18/8135380-6558285-image-a-19_1546625239394.jpgAround the 17th century, Earth experienced a prolonged cooling period dubbed the Little Ice Age that brought chillier-than-average temperatures to much of the Northern Hemisphere

‘We screened this historical data for outliers and considered a variety of corrections associated with pressure effects on the thermometer and stretching of the hemp rope used for lowering thermometers,’ Huybers said.

As expected, the comparisons showed most of the world’s oceans has been warming up over the last century.

In the deep Pacific Ocean, however, temperatures are dropping. This effect could be seen at a depth of around 2 kilometers (1.2 miles).

According to the team, this could influence our understanding of how much heat the ocean has absorbed in the last century, suggesting it could be as much as 30 percent less than previously assumed.

Their findings are published in a new paper in the journal Science.

‘The close correspondence between the predictions and observed trends gave us confidence that this is a real phenomenon,’ Gebbie said.

‘Part of the heat needed to bring the ocean into equilibrium with an atmosphere having more greenhouse gases was apparently already present in the deep Pacific,’ Huybers said.

‘These findings increase the impetus for understanding the causes of the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age as a way for better understanding modern warming trends.’

Convincing Feeble Minded To Keep Voting The Rest Of Us Into Slavery Has Never Been Easier

In an interview that aired Monday, Jerry Brown called the president a “saboteur” in the fight to combat climate change, and in a thinly veiled threat said that “something’s got to happen to this guy.” Speaking to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell at an environmental summit in San Francisco last week, Brown tore into Trump for the president’s tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria and urged voters to vote for Democrats in November’s midterm elections in an effort to thwart Trump’s agenda, according to Fox News.

‘Father of Global Warming’ Scientist Finally Admits Theory Was A Scam

https://cdns.yournewswire.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/climae-change-scientist-678x381.jpg

The scientist widely known as the “Father of Global Warming” has admitted for the first time that data used to promote his climate change theory was false and fradulently manipulated by Al Gore to suit an agenda. 

In 1986 the former NASA scientist, James Hansen, testified to Congress during a hearing on global warming organized by then-Congressman Al Gore to produce scientific models based on a number of different scenarios that could impact the planet.

According to Hansen, Al Gore took the data provided in a “worst-case scenario” and intentionally twisted it, rebranding it as “Global Warming,” making tens of millions of dollars in the process.

The model was titled “Scenario B” and was one of many provided to Congress by Hansen, however it left out significant factors meaning it didn’t reflect real-world conditions. This didn’t stop Al Gore and climate alarmists using the data to mislead millions of people all over the world.

However a new study that compares real-world data to the original Scenario B model — finding no correlation — has received Hansen’s backing, with the “Father of global warming” admitting he is “devastated” by the way his data has been used by climate alarmists.

Real World data shows “the science is not settled”

The dire climate prediction that was taken from Hansen’s data model “significantly overstates the warming” observed in the real world since the 1980s, according to the new analysis.

https://cdns.yournewswire.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/scientist-global-warming-theory-false-data-34718.jpgDr. Ross McKitrick, known as the ‘Father of Global Warming’, says real world data shows no global warming has occured.

Western Journal reports: Economist Ross McKitrick and climate scientist John Christy found observed warming trends match the low end of what Hansen told Congress during a hearing on global warming organized by then-Congressman Al Gore.

“Climate modelers will object that this explanation doesn’t fit the theories about climate change,” the two wrote.

“But those were the theories Hansen used, and they don’t fit the data.

“The bottom line is, climate science as encoded in the models is far from settled.”

Cato Institute climate scientists Patrick Michaels and Ryan Maue wrote that “surface temperatures are behaving as if we had capped 18 years ago the carbon-dioxide emissions responsible for the enhanced greenhouse effect.”

“But we didn’t. And it isn’t just Mr. Hansen who got it wrong,” Michaels and Maue wrote in The Wall Street Journal in June.

The WSJ op-ed set off a fierce debate over the accuracy of Hansen’s predictions.

Several media reports interviewing climate scientists claimed Hansen’s predictions — issued in 1988 — were pretty much correct.

Hansen’s dire global warming predictions turned 30 this year, sparking fawning media coverage of their accuracy.

The so-called “godfather” of global warming even told The Associated Press “I don’t want to be right in that sense.”

Some scientists moved the goalposts and argued even though Hansen’s temperature predictions were off, he got the radiative forcing from greenhouse gas emissions correct.

https://screenshotscdn.firefoxusercontent.com/images/dc0ddd6d-a992-4af4-9087-af5e30e301ed.png

However, McKitrick and Christy’s analysis takes into account such objections, pointing out that Hansen’s prediction of carbon dioxide emissions was actually close to what was observed — there just wasn’t much warming.

It turns out Hansen’s worst-case scenario projection of global warming, known as Scenario B, only takes carbon dioxide emissions into account, but still showed too much warming, McKitrick and Christy wrote.

“What really matters is the trend over the forecast interval, and this is where the problems become visible,” McKitrick and Christy wrote.

Hansen’s conclusion, they wrote, “significantly overstates the warming.”

Armstrong Economics: Prepare Now For Global Cooling – Food Shortages Ahead

Winnipeg Grain Exchange Closing Right in Time for the Cycle

Canada’s last commodity exchange is closing. The Winnipeg Grain Exchange, which was established in 1887, will shut down for good after its owner transfers the bourse’s only remaining futures contract to New York. It is ironic that when a decision like this is made, it is often a sign of a major change in trend. Wheat peaked during the first quarter of 2008. We are just now starting to play with the Downtrend Line in preparation for a commodity boom into the 2024 time period.

I have been focusing on the energy output of the Sun declining and how we are headed back toward the climate getting much colder. People like Al Gore are politicians. He has no expertise in climate whatsoever. Nevertheless, he runs around the world arguing for global warming, preaching something that to him has become just a religion. He is THE person who made global warming a presidential issue that has stigmatized the entire world and prevented people from actually just looking at how everything works.

The markets are lining up and what they are showing is that we are in store for climate change, but it’s getting much colder and that is far worse than global warming. Civilization expands when the climate warms, and it contracts when it gets cold. This is also why Kim Jong-Un of North Korea used missiles to force the West to accept his country back into the world fold. Why? North Korea lost more than 2 million people when the crops failed in 1995/1996. The summer of 2017 saw a dramatic decline in crop production in North Korea, down by some 30%. They are headed to another cycle of cold and starvation. His father’s policies of feeding the army first has created a 1 million man army with nothing to do. People joined the army just to eat.

Everything we see in the computer’s projections WARNS that we are indeed in for climate change, but it is a natural cycle not caused by humankind. We are looking at a sharp rise in food prices in the years ahead. The closing of the Winnipeg Grain Exchange is strangely the way the commodity industry always works. You see mining companies close at the lows and expand at the highs. They can never see the future even when it punches them in the face. So stockpile food as we enter this period of rising prices. There will be shortages in the years ahead.

U.S. Had Its Coldest April In More Than 20 Years (video)

Below-average temperatures spanned the Rockies to the East Coast

Everyone seems to be wondering, “What happened to spring?” Last month, a persistent flow of Arctic air blanketed the eastern two-thirds of the nation. Record cold, and even snow in some areas, delayed the onset of warm spring-like conditions.

Let’s dive deeper to see how April 2018 and the year to date fared in terms of the climate record:   

Climate by the numbers

April 2018

The average April temperature across the contiguous U.S. was 48.9 degrees F (2.2 degrees below average), making it the 13th coldest April of the 124-year record, according to scientists from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. This was the coldest April since 1997. The month saw record- and near-record-cold temperatures from the Northern Plains to Gulf Coast and the Northeast. The Southwest was warmer than average.

The average precipitation for the month was 2.41 inches (0.11 of an inch below average), which ranked near the middle of the record. Record dryness was observed in parts of the Southwest and mid-Mississippi Valley with areas of record-wet conditions in the Northwest.

Year to date | January through April

The average U.S. temperature for the year to date (January through April) was 39.8 degrees F (0.7 degrees above average), placing it near the middle of the climate record. This was the coldest start of the year for the nation since 2014. Average precipitation for the year to date totaled 9.58 inches (0.11 of an inch above normal), ranking it near the middle of the climate record.

Other notable climate events

  • Polar outbreak chilled the nation: Twenty-two states had April temperatures ranking among the 10 coldest on record. Eight states had their second coldest April on record and two states — Iowa and Wisconsin — were record-cold and saw record snowfalls. The April snow cover across the contiguous U.S. was the fifth largest on record for April and the largest since 1997.

  • Rain pummeled paradise: During April 14-15, heavy rainfall inundated the Hawaiian island of Kauai and caused major flooding and landslides. A rain gauge near Hanalei on Kauai’s North Shore reported 49.69 inches of rain in 24 hours, which set a potential new national record.

  • Western warmth and dryness triggered wildfires: Warm and dry conditions in the Southwest and Southern Plains sparked an early start to wildfire season. In Arizona, the Tinder Fire burned more than 12,600 acres, and in Oklahoma, a series of grass fires burned more than 340,000 acres.

  • Drought worsened in parts of the U.S.: By the end of April, about 28 percent of the Lower 48 states were in drought, down slightly from 29 percent at the end of March. Drought conditions worsened across the Southwest and Great Plains, and improved in parts of the West, northern Plains and Southeast.

‘Global Warming’ Strikes Sahara Desert With Vengeance

https://i0.wp.com/shtfplan.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/saharasnow-e1515499871463.jpg

It snowed 16 inches in the Sahara Desert near the town Ain Sefra in Algeria after a storm hit on Sunday. This is the third time in 40 years that snow has fallen on the city.

Residents also awoke to snow in 2016 and 2017.  But this time, they got about 16 inches of the white stuff. While the actual town of Ain Sefra only saw a few inches of snow, the sand dunes in the desert, which is on the outskirts of the town, were covered.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/20180109_snow1.png

“We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5 pm,” said Photographer Karim Bouchetata. When Bouchetata says “again”, the photographer is referring to another snowstorm not long ago. In 2016, the town known as “The Gateway to the Desert saw deep snow shortly after Christmas and it caused chaos, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy.

But children made the most of it, sledding down the desert sand dunes and building snowmen.

The cold snap comes as Europe and the United States froze in bitter temperatures. Winter Storm Grayson, battering the US east coast, has seen the sea freeze in Cape Cod, along with the Niagra Falls in stunning scenes.

“Cold air was pulled down south into North Africa over the weekend as a result of high pressure over Europe,” said a spokesman for the Met Office earlier. “The high pressure meant the cold weather extended further south than normal.” Ain Sefra is about 3,281 feet above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.

The Sahara Desert covers most of Northern Africa and it has gone through shifts in temperature and moisture over the past few hundred thousand years. Although the Sahara is very dry today, it is expected to become green again in about 15,000 years and was green in the past.  This change was blamed on “global warming” or “climate change.”

Pope (Jesuit Communist) Says Humanity Will “Go down” If It Does Not Address Climate Change

ABOARD THE PRIVATE PAPAL JET (Reuters) – Pope Francis said the recent spate of hurricanes should prompt people to understand that humanity will “go down” if it does not address climate change and history will judge those who deny the science on its causes.

https://dailycrusadernewsdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/2017-09-11t150033z_3_lynxnped8a14b_rtroptp_4_pope-colombia.jpg?w=1024

“If we don’t turn back, we will go down,” Francis told reporters on Sunday on the plane returning from Colombia. Francis strongly backed the 2015 Paris agreement on reducing global warming, from which the United States withdrew this year.

Francis spoke as hurricane Irma pounded central Florida as it carved through the state with high winds, storm surges and torrential rains that left millions without power, ripped roofs off homes and flooded city streets.

Francis was asked about recent hurricanes, including Irma and Harvey, and if political leaders who do not want to work with other countries to stem global warming should be held morally responsible for future effects on the planet.

“You can see the effects of climate change and scientists have clearly said what path we have to follow,” he said, referring to a consensus by scientists that global warming is caused by human activity such as fossil fuels.

“All of us have a responsibility, all of us, small or large, a moral responsibility. We have to take it seriously. We can’t joke about it,” he said. “Each person has their own. Even politicians have their own.”

Ahead of the Paris summit in 2015, Francis wrote a major encyclical, or papal letter, on the care of the environment which backed the gradual elimination of fossil fuels to stem global warming.

The accord, agreed on by nearly 200 countries, aims to cut emissions blamed for global warming. The United States committed to reducing its own by 26 to 28 percent, compared with 2005 levels, by 2025. Many world leaders criticized Trump for pulling out.

“If someone is doubtful that this is true, they should ask scientists. They are very clear. These are not opinions made on the fly. They are very clear. Then each person can decide and history will judge the decisions,” he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris agreement shortly after visiting the Vatican in May. The Vatican had urged him to stay in the accord.

A Vatican official said at the time that the U.S. move was a “slap in the face” for the pope and the Vatican.

Final Push For California Cap-N-Trade Extension Is About Money, Not Global Warming

https://i0.wp.com/image.sbsun.com/storyimage/LG/20170714/LOCAL1/170719699/AR/0/AR-170719699.jpg&maxh=400&maxw=667

Gov. Jerry Brown is racing to convince state lawmakers to extend California’s cap-and-trade program which puts a price on carbon emitted by polluters, including oil refineries like the Valero Benicia Refinery seen Wednesday, July 12, 2017, in Benicia, Calif. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)

There is one thing that is not up for discussion as Gov. Jerry Brown battles to win support for the extension of California’s cap-and-trade program: the flow of cap-and-trade funds to the bullet train.

“If that’s a killer for you, then you have a dead body,” Brown told this newspaper’s editorial board.

The governor is urgently pressing the Legislature to pass Assembly Bills 398 and 617, two bills that are the product of months of private negotiations to reauthorize the cap-and-trade program for an additional 10 years. It’s currently set to expire in 2020.

What’s the rush? Brown says the world is hurtling toward catastrophic climate change that will lead to 47 percent of the planet having temperatures of 130 or even 140 degrees, with suffering and migration that will destabilize the world. “It’s damn real,” he said.

For the sake of argument, let’s agree that climate change is happening, catastrophic and entirely our fault.

California accounts for only 1 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. We could shut down the entire state, turn off all the generators and shoot all the cows, and it would have absolutely no effect whatsoever on the global climate.

But the governor says California’s cap-and-trade program serves as a model for the world, inspiring other governments to adopt similar policies to reduce greenhouse gases.

The idea of cap and trade is that regulators place a statewide cap on greenhouse gas emissions and require permits for each ton of emissions that a facility produces. Some permits are given out at no charge, and the state holds back a large share of them to sell at quarterly auctions in order to raise revenue.

The revenue goes into the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, and the legislature spends the money on politically favored projects connected to the climate. The connection is sometimes thin.

As of January, according to the governor’s budget summary, $3.37 billion had been spent this way. Those billions of dollars were pulled from the pockets of people who were paying higher prices for everything manufactured or transported in California.

In 2016, the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office said cap and trade had added 11 cents to the price of a gallon of gasoline, 13 cents to the price of diesel. Earlier this year, the LAO estimated that if the cap-and-trade program is extended for 10 years, it will add 63 cents to the cost of a gallon of gas in 2021, rising to 73 cents in 2031.

With its higher cost of living, California’s poverty rate is 20.6 percent, the highest in the nation, and economic distress is evident. In May, state finance officials said sales-tax revenue came in far below expectations, likely because wages were lower. The governor’s January budget proposal said that over the past four years, “the percentage of wage and salary growth from high-wage sectors dropped from 50 percent to 36 percent of total growth.” Cap and trade began in 2012.

Is the cap-and-trade program contributing to the loss of high-paying industrial jobs in California?

There’s no time to think about it, because the vote to extend the program will probably happen on Monday, just one week after the bills were made public.

It’s about money, not climate. The governor’s budget summary says extending the program to 2030 will lessen volatility in the quarterly auctions and boost revenues. And then there’s the bullet train.

As of January, $800 million of cap-and-trade funds had been spent on high-speed rail. And in the rail authority’s 2016 business plan, there’s a letter to legislative leaders from the California High-Speed Rail Peer Review Group about the financing for the initial operating segment from San Jose to Wasco.

“Most important,” they write, is “the Authority’s ability to securitize cap-and-trade funding when needed in the future.”

Securitizing is the process of borrowing future revenues by selling bonds to investors. The longer the time period of guaranteed revenue, the more that can be borrowed.

“Extending the C&T program beyond 2020 and defining the Authority’s share of the proceeds is one potential way to achieve at least part of the funding objective,” the experts wrote.

The business plan says the first segment of the bullet train will need $5.3 billion in committed cap-and-trade funds, plus another $5.2 billion borrowed against future cap-and-trade revenues to be collected between 2025 and 2050.

But the cap-and-trade program expires in 2020.

Is it starting to make sense? The voters approved a bullet train that would be built without a tax increase and operated without a public subsidy. Cap-and-trade funds are not tax revenues, so they can be spent building high-speed rail forever.

A vote to extend the cap-and-trade program is a vote to fund the bullet train with ever-higher prices for food, gasoline, electricity and everything that’s made or moved in California.

That’s the real path to catastrophe.

UPDATE: It passed.

Geoengineering Is The Primary Cause Of Global Climate Change, Not CO2

Nonstop Chemical Geoengineering Has Pushed the Planet into Climate Chaos

chemtrails22015 Set to be the Hottest on Record Because of the Intensified Chemtrail Operations Nationwide

Warmest December in memory was deliberately manufactured
to coincide with the historic U.N. Climate Conference in Paris  

State of the Nation

The world was warned by a military pilot member of Operation Indigo Skyfold.  “Blue Jay 1”, as he is known, revealed to the world community of nations that starting in January of 2015 the skies of the planet would see a considerable increase in the amount and intensity of chemtrail operations.

“All pilots on leave are required to report to their CO by Dec 15th for special training operations, to qualify for Indigo Phase 2 flights, expected to be initiated by January 21, 2015.”
(Source: OPERATION INDIGO SKYFOLD: The Most Secret Covert Black Operation In World History)

As indicated from the volumes of anecdotal evidence posted on the Internet, there is no question that the pilot whistle blower (Blue Jay 1) was absolutely right in his prediction.  The fact that 2015 has now gone on record as the hottest year in recorded history is also a testament to the overriding influence that chemical geoengineering has on planet Earth’s climate.  Particularly when chemical geoengineering is used in tandem with highly advanced HAARP technologies, out-of-season weather events and unseasonal climate calamities can be fabricated quite quickly and impressively.


The current global regime of chemical engineering has been intensified
considerably over the past 3 years since 2012.  Since January of 2015,
chemtrail operations have been conducted with extraordinary zeal.
Geoengineering the skies across the USA — 24/7 — has profoundly
altered the local weather patterns and normal climate trends nationwide.
2015 has seen a substantial uptick in chemtrailing operations everywhere,
as the sun rays are blocked and mold counts have increased dramatically.
The most significant consequence of this constant chemcloud cover and
acceleration of the hydrological cycle is the exacerbation of climate change.
The deliberate implementation of this worldwide climate engineering
agenda via coal ash-containing chemtrail aerosols* has greatly contributed
to every facet of Global Climate Change.


*U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails

Certainly the folks in New York City are surprised to be gallivanting around in shorts and tees during the holiday season, as are those who live in the nation’s capital.  What is particularly curious is that no one (with societal standing) throughout these bastions of intelligentsia and political power, respectively, has made the obvious correlation between the exceedingly high temps and the practically permanent state of chemclouded skies.

chemtrails-criss-crossHow is that so?  Don’t politicians and lobbyists, research scientists and academics ever look up at the sky?

If they did, they might see something like the preceding photo.

New World Order = One World Government = CO2 ‘Management’ Regime

There is actually a very good reason why no one ever from the establishment — political or scientific — ever talks about chemtrails or chemclouds in public.  They are strictly forbidden from even mentioning such a super-secret program that undergirds the New World Order (NWO) agenda to create a One World Government.  Hence, there is never any official word issued from government or weather reporting agencies despite their high level of awareness regarding the chemtrail aerosols sprayed overhead (as in directly over their heads).  Until now!

CRACKED! Top Climate Scientist Admits to Ongoing Geoengineering

Now that the geoengineers have sufficiently ramped up their spraying programs to create continuous cloud cover over vast swaths of the United States, Canada and beyond, they have conditioned the populace to believe that this is the new normal.  You know, it’s also called climate change.  Or Global Climate Change (GCC) when they want you to believe that this is an overarching planetary climate pattern directly caused by human activity, specifically anthropogenic CO2 generation.

Well, GGC certainly is caused by humanity, except most of any climate change is being purposefully geoengineered by the geoengineers.  They (NWO globalist cabal) have conveniently forgotten to mention that because of their fixation on CO2 production, and its calculated control.  Only by fastidiously controlling carbon inputs and outputs can a “Global Carbon Control Matrix” be put into place.  Because it is CO2 which must be strictly controlled in their New World Order, they already have designed a full-blown Global CO2 ‘Management’ Regime.

One World Government Initially Emerging As Global CO2 ‘Management’ Regime

MMS

There are many reasons why they intend to bring this misguided scheme to full fruition. It has nothing to doing with being good stewards of Mother Earth and everything to do with maintaining absolute dominion over every cubic inch of the biosphere.[1]  Some are even convinced that they are intent on destroying the biosphere.  Kind of like they have waged endless wars as a means of promoting disaster capitalism.

In this way they will use the profound and pervasive environmental destruction as an explanation for creating a whole new global economy based on carbon trades.  Carbon emission trading has already become the new biz with its carbon credits and carbon taxes and everything in between.  Carbon cap-and-trade schemes also run the gamut as do other corporate approaches to offset GHG reductions.  Of course, all of these carbon tricks of the trade are merely a pretext to super-regulate every aspect of the biosphere … staring with CO2.

What follows is a quote from the historic REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN which spells out their intentions with Agenda 21 and the Agenda 2030.

“GROSS POLLUTION of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass extinction by nuclear weapons as the principle threat to the survival of the species.”

The REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN (RFIM) is distinguished for many reasons; however, the key takeaway is that the NWO cabal that commissioned it has since implemented its recommendations.  The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development falls under the purview of the U.N. and is a perfect manifestation of the plan to foist a One World Government (OWG) onto the world community of nations.

This has been happening incrementally over several decades just as the same ruling cabal foisted the European Union on much of that continent.  Such an overarching worldwide plan can only be executed by a new global superstructure or One World Government.  In this fashion the administration of geoengineering programs will take place at a supranational level so that citizens and nation-states no longer have a say about any facet of their weather or general environment.

In fact the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and TPIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) are two integral initiatives which have significantly advanced the outright globalization of all land, water bodies and courses, and other natural resources.  Although neither agreement appears to provide such powers, they are only the first step at stripping sovereign nations like the USA of their constitutional rights and liberties.  Slowly but surely the goals of the RFIM are being fulfilled in ways that are both startling and totalitarian.

Chemical Geoengineering and Climate Change

What they have also forgotten to share with the human race is a crucial little factoid.  That fact concerns water vapor, which is by far the most plentiful of all the greenhouse gases (GHG).  The GHG, of course, are those which have been identified as the main contributors to climate change.  They chose CO2 for obvious reasons but then curiously ignore water vapor altogether.  Here is the list of the top 4 GHG from Wikipedia in descending order of amount and contribution:

Screen Shot 2015-12-26 at 4.05.24 PM

Now consider the following excerpt about water vapor.

Water Vapor
Water vapor tops the list of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The earth continuously produces water vapor, which evaporates and then goes up to the atmosphere. Clouds, fog, and haze are all part of water vapor, with steam being the main fossil fuel combustion byproduct. Steam from water comprises up to 70 percent of the total greenhouse effect.
(Source: Top 5 List of Greenhouse Gases)

What is truly critical to understand is that water vapor is the number 1 greenhouse gas.  In terms of total volume and total effect which directly impact the current global climate trends, water vapor far exceeds CO2.  More importantly the actual percentage of manmade CO2, also known as anthropogenic carbon, is a fraction of what is produced by the biosphere exclusive of the human race.

This discussion ought to seriously alarm any person who is involved in the raging global warming debate.  The reason: because if there really is a scientifically established trend of rising of temperatures globally, it is due to the massive increase in water vapor which is being generated from chemical geoengineering programs via chemtrail aerosols.  This particular source of the GHG water vapor is by far the greatest. It is also the easiest to control.  All they need to do is shut down all geoengineering programs until a new baseline can be determined across the whole range of GCC contributions factors.

Nonstop Chemical Geoengineering Has Become The New Normal

The globalists who are behind this unrivaled ruse have spent billions trying to convince humanity that their (each individual’s) carbon footprint is to blame for the climate chaos. No one denies that much more CO2 is generated by an industrial civilization. However, compared to the ongoing and incessant chemtrail operations conducted around the globe, the real anthropogenic culprit would be geoengineering, not industrial operations and/or energy consumption.  Although both industry and geoengineering are responsible for spewing enormous amounts of coal fly ash into the atmosphere.

maxresdefault2

Simply put, the rain events worldwide and global cloud cover have entered a whole new league ever since chemtrailing and chembombing have become such a common sky-polluting practices. The geoengineers have pushed the edge of the envelope with their atmospheric manipulation in ways that are now having a tremendous influence on worldwide weather patterns. The longer term climatological impacts are likewise being seen and felt as never before.

Because “chemical geoengineering has become the new normal” there can only be one disastrous result.  The world community of nations has been experiencing those weather calamities for many years now.  Each country has a tale of weather woe to report no matter where they are located.  Drought now routinely alternates with deluge, as do catastrophic wind storms whip up with greater frequency.  Each season — in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres — now brings freak weather events and unpredictable climate chaos so often that they are also the “new normal”.

Because the geoengineers are so determined to control the world’s climate, they have essentially been conducting a massive experiment with the entire biosphere.  Now that the delicate balance within Earth’s atmosphere has been upset for so many years, it is impossible to know what the climate would be like without all the artificial weather modification.  The now pervasive programs of ongoing chemtrail spraying are now so intense and unrelenting that 2016 promises to bring much more of the same climate chaos.

Hottest Year On Record Proves The Geoengineers Can Produce Global Climate Change

At the end of the day one firm conclusion will be drawn from the current geoengineering paradigm.  That any and all dramatic changes, which have been observed regarding global weather patterns, are directly attributed to the out-of-control chemical geoengineering regime that now overlays much of the planet.  That 2015 is shaping up to be the hottest year on record stands as a testament to this.

Although many refuse to admit that relentless geoengineering can in fact increase temperatures both regional and globally, this past fall and the current winter have proven the now obvious.  This deliberate manipulation of public opinion around global warming has only served to allow the geoengineers to maintain their fundamentally flawed paradigm.  In so doing they have been empowered to conduct an extremely dangerous experiment in which all of humanity now sits as does the now famous frog in his/her pot of soon-to-be-boiling hot water.

Many go so far as to deny that the glaciers have been melting at record rates all over the world. Just because they have disappeared because of geoengineering techniques doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. Soon the ambient ocean temps will be so out of whack that coastlines everywhere will be forever altered.  Since many residents of the world live near the shorelines, this development alone will continue to proceed with overwhelming effect.  Just like New York City was buffeted by Superstorm Sandy and Manila is blasted by one typhoon after another, other major megalopolises are likewise exposed to the ravages of geoengineered climate change.

Planet Earth is being systematically geoengineered into a slow-motion extinction level event.

Everyone has heard by now that if you tell a BIG enough lie enough times it will eventually become accepted as the gospel truth.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
— Joseph Goebbels: On the “Big Lie”

The two biggest lies that humankind is now facing on a daily basis are as follows:

• That CO2 generation from human activity is the primary cause of global climate change

• That organized chemical geoengineering programs do not exist and that all chemtrails are really contrails

Both of these highly consequential notions are being repeatedly misrepresented by governments and the mainstream media (MSM) alike.  Likewise the entire Military-Industrial Complex and related Fortune 1000 companies completely support this covert global endeavor of weather modification and climate engineering.  In fact the U.S. military has taken the lead role first in the execution of Operation Cloverleaf[2], and later on in the implementation of Operation Indigo Skyfold.  Both highly vetted Air Force and Navy pilots are primary personnel who fly the specially retrofitted airliner which emit the coal-ash based chemtrail aerosols.

Each of them is supported by every organ of government and provided with a prodigious amount of resources to maintain these outright lies.  The entire corporate sector has been likewise enlisted to maintain the unending coverup of both the blue skies and the conspiratorial plot–chemical geoengineering.  They have both been indefatigably assisted by the MSM at every turn in this ongoing Con of the Millennium!

The real problem with the ever-worsening planetary predicament is that eventually the biosphere will exceed critical points of no return.  Crucial breakpoints have already been observed which have caused ecosystems to collapse.  Isn’t that what continuous drought and regular deluge will do?  The once great state of California is a perfect example of what the other 49 states can expect.

Relentless Chemtrail Spraying and HAARP-manufactured weather events radically alter California’s climate

Because the true effects of geoengineering are so insidious and under-the-radar, the entire planet is literally being set up for a slow-motion ELE (extinction level event).  Only because an apocalyptic event has not yet occurred on the scale of the Great Flood or the “Sinking of Atlantis” do many blow off such speculation as the stuff of a fertile imagination overly influenced by Apocalypse consciousness.  However, the signs and omens now abound everywhere.  Harbingers of an environmental Armageddon show up uninvited everywhere and anywhere, especially by way of meteorological devastation.

All anyone has to do is look at their local weather, or tune into the national weather events. An even better barometer reading will come from a quick scan of the regional or global news reports concerning major weather events.  They now occur with such frequency that they cannot be ignored. As a matter of fact, if the historical weather records were carefully reviewed, the following conclusion would become clear.  That the number of deaths and amount of damage from weather-related events has seen a steady and often precipitous rise, especially since the implementation of the perpetual and purposeful geoengineering programs.

Conclusion

There is only one reason why the planetary civilization finds itself at the edge of the climatological precipice.  That reason:  Most of the people of the world are clueless about what is occurring right above their heads.  Many are willfully ignorant of the chemtrails; others are simply unaware and uninformed.  The continual government disinformation campaign has been so effective that many don’t even know what to think.  Then there is the small but vocal minority of truth-seekers who know exactly what is going on.

Hence, the only way forward is through a deliberate campaign of education and edification. The education piece clearly delineates the facts about geoengineering; the edification part explains the necessity of mobilizing around the urgent need to terminate the chemtrails post-haste.  When most people come to understand that the hazardous waste product from coal-fired power plants — coal fly ash — is the main ingredient in chemtrails, they will join this movement—yesterday!

Peer-Reviewed, Court-Admissible, Scientific Research Paper Published Exposing Geoengineering and Coal Fly Ash

Truly, if ever there was a plot to commit genocide against the whole human race, the present system of ever-intensifying chemical geoengineering programs is it.  Therefore, the people must be made aware and motivated to respond accordingly.  After all, no one likes toxic chemicals  being sprayed on them all day long for years on end.  Nor does anyone like the blue skies being unceasingly polluted, particularly when the pollution becomes so dense the sun rays are forever blocked.

Who, pray tell, wants their sunny days stolen from them week after week … only to be replaced with days of toxic chemtrail drizzle?

The REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN (RFIM) should not be underestimated for it clearly outlines the future of the New World Order.  Both U.N. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are manifestations of the basic game plan recommended by the RFIM.  Therefore, this is a very good place for many to start.  The following link provides an important essay which breaks down the whole NWO strategy to corral the human race into a pen of fear and apprehension about the future viability of the biosphere.

Report from Iron Mountain: How War Will Be Replaced By Environmental Destruction To Traumatize Humanity

Editor’s Note

Many people are now aware of the major scams being run daily by the global elites on the inhabitants of this planet.  Who, for instance, is not aware of the international crime syndicate known as the Federal Reserve and the global Central Banking System?  However, of all the cons and shams there is none greater in scope and complexity than manufactured Global Climate Change via chemical geoengineering and HAARP.

That they even attempted, much less continue to perpetrate, such a preposterous scheme only betrays their level of sheer desperation.  They do know that, when a critical mass of residents get wind of their ploy for total planetary control, they will be frogmarched out of their plush offices and posh estates and into the same pot of hot water they have been ever so slowly heating up.  There they will be left in a stewpot of their own making, never to take over the kitchen again.

Special Note

Hey people, it really is time to LOOK UP.  Link up.  Stand up.  Speak up.  Get up.  Talk it up.  And a lot LOT more.

We all possess a fundamental right to not be chemically assaulted by anyone, or any entity under the sun. Likewise, we all have the right not to have our home and property chemically trespassed by anyone, or any entity under the sun.

Therefore, we all have a fundamental right not to be sprayed by the chemical geoengineering programs currently in operation throughout the USA. Does anyone have the right to walk onto your property and indiscriminately spray toxic chemicals wherever they wish? We think not. Should they do so, repeatedly, they might end up in an institution for the criminally insane!

Is there any business, organization or governmental entity that possesses the inherent power to conduct itself in this same manner? We don’t think so, lest they be responsible for chemical assault or trespass. Furthermore, we would challenge anyone in in the U.S. Federal Government, to cite a single instance where anyone, or any entity, possesses the legitimate (does not transgress inviolable rights), statutory power to engage in such intrusive and outright harmful behavior.

After all, chemical assault is chemical assault no matter who is spraying the toxic chemicals … or how secretly they conduct the chemical trespass.
(Source: Taking A Stand Against The Unrelenting Chemtrail Assault …)

It is truly inconceivable that such a destructive and harmful government program is running 24/7 right over our heads and hardly anyone notices.

Because so few have taken notice, We the People are now forced into a geoengineered corner.  And there’s only one way out of that corner.

Think of our collective predicament as the American colonists did.  They knew that there was only one way out of the nascent British Empire.  With each year came a different form of oppression in the form of so many dictatorial “Acts” issued by the Crown.  As follows:

1733 – Molasses Act
1764 – Sugar Act
1764 – Currency Act
1765 – Stamp Act
1765 – Quartering Act
1766 – Declaratory Act
1767 – Townshend Revenue Act
1773 – Tea Act
1774 – Intolerable or Coercive Acts

What’s the point?  The American people are now dictated to by another despotic tyranny. Now we have the patently unlawful and covertly executed Geoengineering Act administered by the U.S. Federal Government.  This is just one of many other unwanted  national initiatives that have been imposed on the citizenry such as GMO foods, fluoridated water, mandatory childhood vaccinations, circumcision without consent, as well as a whole slew of taxes and fees which have kept many in the state of perpetual poverty.

None of these compare to the fouling of our air.  What could possibly come close to the poisoning of the ambient air that we breathe with so many highly toxic contaminants?!

NASA says Antarctic has been COOLING for past SIX years

ANTARCTIC temperatures have cooled over the past six years, according to US space agency NASA.

PUBLISHED: 15:51, Wed, Nov 25, 2015 | UPDATED: 16:44, Wed, Nov 25, 2015
Heimdal Glacier in southern Greenland, in an image captured on Oct. 13, 2015, from NASA Langley Research Center's Falcon 20 aircraft flying 33,000 fee

An intensive scientific study of both Earth’s poles has found that from 2009 to 2016 overall temperature has dropped in the southern polar region.

NASA’s Operation IceBridge is an airborne survey of polar ice and has finalized two overlapping research campaigns at both the poles.

In the last few weeks NASA has revealed the overall amount of ice has increased at the Antarctic and the amount of sea ice has also extended.

Coupled with the latest announcement of slight cooling in the area, it has fueled claims from climate change deniers that human industrialization is not having the huge impact on global temperature as often is claimed.

Map showing the extent of ice during the NASA studies

Christopher Shuman, a University of Maryland, Baltimore County glaciologist working at Goddard, said: “Field data suggests that there’s been a modest cooling in the area over the 2009–2015 time period, and images collected during that time by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on the Terra and Aqua satellites show more persistent fast ice (sea ice that is attached to the shore) in the Larsen A and Larsen B embayments”

However, Mr Shuman warned that in some areas of the Antarctic, glaciers continued to melt at significant levels, despite  the slight temperature drop.

At the south polio, the mission observed a big drop in the height of two glaciers situated in the Antarctic Peninsula.

Mr Shuman added: “These IceBridge measurements show that once the ice shelves collapse, even some cooling and a good deal of persistent sea ice is not able to hold back these larger glaciers and they continue to lose mass overall.”

NASA has found that overall the amount of Antarctic ice has increased

During one flight in the Peninsula that mapped the drainage area of several glaciers, a drop of more than 490 feet (150 meters) in the height of two glaciers since IceBridge last plotted them, in 2009, was measured.

Both glaciers, called Green and Hektoria, were tributaries to the Larsen B ice shelf, which disintegrated in 2002.

After the ice shelf collapsed, it stopped buttressing the glaciers that fed it, and glacier elevations have fallen dramatically since then.

A study published in 2012 showed average elevation losses of up to 82 feet (25 meters) per year for the lower Green and Hektoria glaciers from 2006 to 2011.

Many scientists believe the climate is gradually heating up and we will be looking at droughts and water shortages in the long term

A NASA spokesman said:”So IceBridge’s discovery that both are still losing ice fast many years after the loss of the adjacent ice shelf is “not all that surprising given what we have observed with other sensors,” said Mr Shuman.

So, confusingly, the new details of further glacial melt have fueled those who believe we are causing global warming and polar ice melt.

At the Arctic north pole, the project collected much needed measurements of the status of land and sea ice at the end of the Arctic summer melt season.

The results of these have yet to be published, but the whole issue is set to be debated in full at a clime change conference in Paris later this month.

This Discovery Will Change The Climate Change Debate

       Dr David Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.

A MATHEMATICAL discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer Dr David Evans may change everything about the climate debate, on the eve of the UN climate change conference in Paris next month.

A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.

He has found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.

He has fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.

It turns out the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has over-estimated future global warming by as much as 10 times, he says.

“Yes, CO2 has an effect, but it’s about a fifth or tenth of what the IPCC says it is. CO2 is not driving the climate; it caused less than 20 per cent of the global warming in the last few decades”.

Dr Evans says his discovery “ought to change the world”.

“But the political obstacles are massive,” he said.

His discovery explains why none of the climate models used by the IPCC reflect the evidence of recorded temperatures. The models have failed to predict the pause in global warming which has been going on for 18 years and counting.

“The model architecture was wrong,” he says. “Carbon dioxide causes only minor warming. The climate is largely driven by factors outside our control.”

There is another problem with the original climate model, which has been around since 1896.

While climate scientists have been predicting since the 1990s that changes in temperature would follow changes in carbon dioxide, the records over the past half million years show that not to be the case.

So, the new improved climate model shows CO2 is not the culprit in recent global warming. But what is?

 

Dr Evans has a theory: solar activity. What he calls “albedo modulation”, the waxing and waning of reflected radiation from the Sun, is the likely cause of global warming.

He predicts global temperatures, which have plateaued, will begin to cool significantly, beginning between 2017 and 2021. The cooling will be about 0.3C in the 2020s. Some scientists have even forecast a mini ice age in the 2030s.

If Dr Evans is correct, then he has proven the theory on carbon dioxide wrong and blown a hole in climate alarmism. He will have explained why the doomsday predictions of climate scientists aren’t reflected in the actual temperatures.

Dr David Evans, who says climate model architecture is wrong, with wife Jo Nova

“It took me years to figure this out, but finally there is a potential resolution between the insistence of the climate scientists that CO2 is a big problem, and the empirical evidence that it doesn’t have nearly as much effect as they say.”

Dr Evans is an expert in Fourier analysis and digital signal processing, with a PhD, and two Masters degrees from Stanford University in electrical engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering (for which he won the University medal), Bachelor of Science, and Masters in Applied Maths from the University of Sydney.

He has been summarising his results in a series of blog posts on his wife Jo Nova’s blog for climate sceptics.

He is about half way through his series, with blog post 8, “Applying the Stefan-Boltzmann Law to Earth”, published on Friday.

When it is completed his work will be published as two scientific papers. Both papers are undergoing peer review.

“It’s a new paradigm,” he says. “It has several new ideas for people to get used to.”

Introducing “The American Opportunity Carbon Free Act”… what?

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse delivers a weekly speech on climate change on the Senate floor, a series he dubbed “Time to Wake Up.” (Photo credit: Office of Sen. Whitehouse)

Stupid American voters are being heavily conditioned by main stream media for the next massive tax increase before they’ve had a chance to deal with the last one, Obama Care.

Remember Cap and Trade? This one, “The American Opportunity Carbon Free Act”, reported as being formally discussed in the US Senate on a weekly basis since last November’s mid-term elections is a proposed tax on fossil fuels used by manufactures. This revenue act would also assess fees for other greenhouse gas emissions and tariffs on products from countries who aren’t taxing their manufactures in the same way.

Below is a prime example of how government has been using main stream media to scare stupid American voters into accepting the climate change lie behind “The American Opportunity Carbon Free Act”, before it ultimately gets crammed through congress like Obama Care. This makes me wonder if Jonathan Gruber, the highly compensated consultant architect of The Affordable Care Act, made famous for referring to the rest of us as “stupid American voters” have been hired to help sell this one too.

The key words and punch lines CBS editors built the following article around are highlighted in red. The same re-occurring themes found in all global warming / climate change propaganda articles.


Mega-Droughts To Become The New Normal

https://i0.wp.com/stateimpact.npr.org/texas/files/2011/11/51636665.jpg

A stock pond south of Dallas dries up due to a drought. Conditions like this could become more commonplace in the later part of the 21st century due to global warming.

Large sections of the United States will endure “persistent droughts” in the coming decades that will be worse than anything experienced in the past 1,000 years.

Comparing the conditions to the Dust Bowl but lasting several decades, researchers writing in the journal Science Advances warned Thursday that the Southwest and Great Plains will be hit by these “mega-droughts” in the later part of the 21st century. Such events have been linked to the fall of civilizations, including the decline of the Anasazi, or Ancient Pueblo Peoples, in the Colorado Plateau in the late 13th century.

“The story is a bit bleak,” said Jason E. Smerdon, a co-author and climate scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, part of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. “Even when selecting for the worst mega drought-dominated period, the 21st century projections make (those) mega droughts seem like quaint walks through the Garden of Eden.”

86611.jpgA representation of the summer moisture in the US Central Plains and Southwest is shown. The brown line represents the variation in dryness since the year 1000; the lower the line on the graph, the drier the conditions. Colored lines to the right side of the graph represent what climate models see ahead: a trend toward dryness not seen in the previous millennium. Cook et al., Science Advances, 2015

To come up with these projections, researchers turned to the North American Drought Atlas which recreates the history of drought over the previous 2,005 years, based on hundreds of tree-ring chronologies, gleaned in turn from tens of thousands of tree samples across the United States, Mexico and parts of Canada.

Taking the Atlas data, they then applied three different measures of drought – two soil moisture measurements at varying depths, and a version of the Palmer Drought Severity Index, which gauges precipitation and evaporation and transpiration. After that, the researchers applied 17 different climate models to analyze the future impact of rising average temperatures on the regions and compared two different global warming scenarios – a continued rise in greenhouse gas emissions and one where they are moderated.

The results, according to the study, point to a “remarkably drier future that falls far outside the contemporary experience of natural and human systems in Western North America, conditions that may present a substantial challenge to adaption.”

“The surprising thing to us was really how consistent the response was over these regions, nearly regardless of what model we used or what soil moisture metric we looked at,” said lead author Benjamin I. Cook of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. “It all showed this really, really significant drying.”

Today, 11 of the past 14 years have been drought years in much of the American West, including California, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona and across the Southern Plains to Texas and Oklahoma, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a collaboration of U.S. government agencies.

The current drought directly affects more than 64 million people in the Southwest and Southern Plains, according to NASA, and many more are indirectly affected because of the impacts on agricultural regions. As a result, states have imposed water restrictions, aquifers have been drawn down and reservoirs such as Lake Meade and Lake Powell are at historic low levels.

“Changes in precipitation, temperature and drought, and the consequences it has for our society – which is critically dependent on our freshwater resources for food, electricity and industry – are likely to be the most immediate climate impacts we experience as a result of greenhouse gas emissions,” said Kevin Anchukaitis, a climate researcher at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Anchukaitis said the findings “require us to think rather immediately about how we could and would adapt.”

The current study on so-called medieval droughts adds to a large body of research linking climate to worsening droughts in parts of the Southwest. The driver, for the most part, is warming in recent decades brought on by increasing greenhouse gas emissions mostly from the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities.

“The results … are extremely unfavorable for the continuation of agricultural and water resource management as they are currently practiced in the Great Plains and southwestern United States,” David Stahle, professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arkansas and director of the Tree-Ring Laboratory and who was not involved in the study, said.

Aiguo Dai, a University associate professor who did not take part in the study but has done studies on past and future droughts across the globe including the United States, said its findings were “fairly convincing” and hopefully will motivate policy makers to take action.

“This provides huge warning sign for society, for the governments to take action to slow down global warming,” Dai told CBS News. “If they don’t, its likely the Southwest could become unsuitable for agriculture or many other activities.”

The Truth About Climate Change

What’s really going on?

by Kit Daniels | InfowarsThe Truth About Climate ChangeThis polar bear isn’t suffering from “climate change” – he’s just swimming at the zoo.

Man-made “climate change” is largely a myth promoted by politicians to scare the public into accepting a vast expansion of government to supposedly stop “global warming.”

Global warming is a manufactured problem played up by the government to instigate a public reaction – fear – the government then exploits to offer a predetermined solution: the expansion of government at the public’s expense.

This strategy, now known as the Hegelian Dialectic, has been used successfully by politicians for millennia to expand government, which can only grow at the expense of individual liberties.

The Bush administration used the strategy successfully in 2003 when it gained enough public support for the invasion of Iraq by claiming the country had weapons of mass destruction, and the war ultimately expanded the military-industrial complex and America’s emerging police state.

Today “global warming” is used as the bogey man because it allows the United Nations to scare the world’s population into believing “man-made climate change” is too big of a threat for their country to handle alone and thus it can only be “defeated” through the expansion of the U.N. at the expense of their nation’s sovereignty.

And state-funded scientists are given thousands and even millions of dollars to help promote the myth of “global warming” by fitting their data into the fearmongering agenda.

“This was viewed as the most likely to succeed because it could be related to observable conditions such as smog and water pollution – in other words, it would be based partly on fact and, therefore, be credible,” G. Edward Griffin wrote in his book The Creature from Jekyll Island. “Predictions could be made showing end-of-earth scenarios just as horrible as atomic warfare.”

“Accuracy in these predictions would not be important; their purpose would be to frighten, not inform.”

And the latest claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record certainly rejected accuracy in favor of fear.

“Any temperature claim of ‘hottest year’ based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous ‘hottest years,’” Marc Morano of Climate Depot reported. “This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges.”

“The claim of the ‘hottest year’ is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts; ‘hottest year’ claims are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18-plus-year ‘pause’ or ‘standstill’ [in warming.]”

The standstill he refers to can be found in Remote Sensing Systems satellite data that shows there has been no significant rise in global temperature since Oct. 1996, which is more than half the 36-year satellite record.

And this pause in warming could last at least another decade.

“The Great Pause is a growing embarrassment to those who had told us with ‘substantial confidence’ that the science was settled and the [climate change] debate over,” climate analyst Lord Christopher Monckton wrote. “Nature had other ideas.”

Pope Francis’s Edict On Climate Change Will Anger Deniers And US Churches

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/static/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2014/12/26/1419630151866/Pope-012.jpg?w=620&q=20&auto=format&usm=12&fit=max&dpr=2&s=501ab1407a8fb367302c1a312cbacf96

Whiskey Tango Texas Summary:

  • Frances jumps into politics to push radical environmentalism agenda at crucial upcoming UN climate meeting in Paris.
  • Pope argues for a radical new global financial and economic system.
  • US evangelical movement has declared the environmental movement to be “un-biblical” and a false religion.

He has been called the “superman pope”, and it would be hard to deny that Pope Francis has had a good December. Cited by President Barack Obama as a key player in the thawing relations between the US and Cuba, the Argentinian pontiff followed that by lecturing his cardinals on the need to clean up Vatican politics. But can Francis achieve a feat that has so far eluded secular powers and inspire decisive action on climate change?

It looks as if he will give it a go. In 2015, the pope will issue a lengthy message on the subject to the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, give an address to the UN general assembly and call a summit of the world’s main religions.

The reason for such frenetic activity, says Bishop Marcelo Sorondo, chancellor of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, is the pope’s wish to directly influence next year’s crucial UN climate meeting in Paris, when countries will try to conclude 20 years of fraught negotiations with a universal commitment to reduce emissions.

“Our academics supported the pope’s initiative to influence next year’s crucial decisions,” Sorondo told Cafod, the Catholic development agency, at a meeting in London. “The idea is to convene a meeting with leaders of the main religions to make all people aware of the state of our climate and the tragedy of social exclusion.”

Following a visit in March to Tacloban, the Philippine city devastated in 2012 by typhoon Haiyan, the pope will publish a rare encyclical on climate change and human ecology. Urging all Catholics to take action on moral and scientific grounds, the document will be sent to the world’s 5,000 Catholic bishops and 400,000 priests, who will distribute it to parishioners.

According to Vatican insiders, Francis will meet other faith leaders and lobby politicians at the general assembly in New York in September, when countries will sign up to new anti-poverty and environmental goals.

In recent months, the pope has argued for a radical new financial and economic system to avoid human inequality and ecological devastation. In October he told a meeting of Latin American and Asian landless peasants and other social movements: “An economic system centered on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it.

“The system continues unchanged, since what dominates are the dynamics of an economy and a finance that are lacking in ethics. It is no longer man who commands, but money. Cash commands.

“The monopolizing of lands, deforestation, the appropriation of water, inadequate agro-toxics are some of the evils that tear man from the land of his birth. Climate change, the loss of biodiversity and deforestation are already showing their devastating effects in the great cataclysms we witness,” he said.

In Lima last month, bishops from every continent expressed their frustration with the stalled climate talks and, for the first time, urged rich countries to act.

Sorondo, a fellow Argentinian who is known to be close to Pope Francis, said: “Just as humanity confronted revolutionary change in the 19th century at the time of industrialization, today we have changed the natural environment so much. If current trends continue, the century will witness unprecedented climate change and destruction of the ecosystem with tragic consequences.”

According to Neil Thorns, head of advocacy at Cafod, said: “The anticipation around Pope Francis’s forthcoming encyclical is unprecedented. We have seen thousands of our supporters commit to making sure their MPs know climate change is affecting the poorest communities.”

However, Francis’s environmental radicalism is likely to attract resistance from Vatican conservatives and in right wing church circles, particularly in the US – where Catholic climate sceptics also include John Boehner, Republican leader of the House of Representatives and Rick Santorum, the former Republican presidential candidate.

Cardinal George Pell, a former archbishop of Sydney who has been placed in charge of the Vatican’s budget, is a climate change sceptic who has been criticised for claiming that global warming has ceased and that if carbon dioxide in the atmosphere were doubled, then “plants would love it”.

Dan Misleh, director of the Catholic climate covenant, said: “There will always be 5-10% of people who will take offence. They are very vocal and have political clout. This encyclical will threaten some people and bring joy to others. The arguments are around economics and science rather than morality.

“A papal encyclical is rare. It is among the highest levels of a pope’s authority. It will be 50 to 60 pages long; it’s a big deal. But there is a contingent of Catholics here who say he should not be getting involved in political issues, that he is outside his expertise.”

Francis will also be opposed by the powerful US evangelical movement, said Calvin Beisner, spokesman for the conservative Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, which has declared the US environmental movement to be “un-biblical” and a false religion.

“The pope should back off,” he said. “The Catholic church is correct on the ethical principles but has been misled on the science. It follows that the policies the Vatican is promoting are incorrect. Our position reflects the views of millions of evangelical Christians in the US.”
