    I don't know why I'm back here blabbering on this stuff, anyhow as I mentioned to you folk before that "Donald" in Gaelic means "Ruler of the World" and of course you folk that read your Bible will find some verses which state "at the last trump", so if DJT returns as President at the next election well........... There is other stuff as the "little horn" will rule the world,but it is just speculation, but as you say "worse things could happen".

    A Revelation About Trees Is Messing With Climate Calculations

    This research could help refine estimates of what the atmosphere was like before industrialization. Maybe we’ve been undercounting the world’s aerosol population by overlooking a large portion of those that come from trees. If so, climate models will need retooling.

    By quantifying how trees make clouds, scientists could better predict the climate’s future—and past. Industrial emissions reduce some warming through radiative forcing, since sulfur aerosols can create reflective clouds. But if biogenic aerosols were more abundant than expected before industrialization, then the contributions from industry matter less.
    Perhaps it isn't us. The horror.

    Stumbled upon this one on YouTube today.

    Wind blades and solar panels head for landfills after being replaced

    I like how they just kind of gloss over the solar panel recycling. Like, those panels will be thrown away one day too guys.

    And apparently burning things to produce energy is fine as long as those things are not oil, gas, or coal.

    There is emerging concern that the frequencies of wind turbines, both the acoustic woosh, and low frequency electromagnetic noise can interfere with heart signals, and offshore, drive marine mammals to suicide.Opps, another example of GW hubris going south. Of course these new concerns can all be BS too and we should assume it.

    I need to have this guy on the podcast. Exposes the pseudoscience brilliantly. And Stump, do me a favor and repost this frequently, so it doesn't get lost.
    Done.

    This is really a pretty damn good thread, you should read the whole thing. Bumping this so it doesn't get lost:

    Really, think about this: A 4.6 billion-year-old planet with an 8000-mile diameter, with a molten core (heat, etc.), with an atmosphere that is only 50 miles/240,000ft thick (being rather generous), that orbits a star only 93 million miles away with 330,000 times the earth's mass and that emits enough radiation to burn your naked ass in 30 minutes, is having its weather unalterably changed over the course of the next 5/10/15 years (whatever it is now) by the presence of a weak greenhouse gas, CO2, that happens to now be at its lowest level in damn near the entire history of the planet -- a history punctuated by global glaciations while that weak greenhouse gas was far higher than it is now -- and that also happens to be the basis of plant life (and therefore atmospheric oxygen), a gas whose greenhouse effect is dwarfed by that of water vapor (on a planet with a surface area that consists of 70% water), and that geologically is currently in an interglacial period. The models that generated this political bullshit have predicted nothing correctly -- not sea level change, polar ice cover, or weather.

    And everybody believes it anyway, to the extent that they are handing the management of the world's economy to elderly megalomaniacs with an agenda based on their own personal power. You're not even allowed to question it -- otherwise sensible people have agreed with the ridiculous premise that CO2 is a deadly poison that must be eliminated from the surface of the earth. Every August, everybody runs around like it's not supposed to be hot. Every time there's a drought, everybody acts like it's the very first time it's been dry too long. "Hurricane season" started in June, and how many hurricanes have devastated the coastlines already inundated by the molten ice caps? How many times over the past 20 years of this shit have the hurricane predictions been correct? This is a classic example of a pseudoscience, exactly like astrology. It's not falsifiable, and it has predicted nothing correctly. And in classic leftist fashion, anyone who disagrees is guilty of "The Pseudoscience of Climate Denialism."

    Really, the children are in charge now, seeking validation for "caring about the planet," running around yelling about "carbon" -- the 4th most abundant element in the physical universe --being a deadly poison. Their managers are common criminals whose entire agenda is money and control, and we are letting it happen. It is the result of the shitty science education we received in the government schools, and it probably cannot be stopped.

    And in addition, the Government that brought you the flu from China, lockdowns, and vaccines that killed far more people than the flu, the Government in charge of "public education", the war(s) in Asia, the economy, and pronouns wants to also be in charge of the weather.

    Carbon dioxide does not cause warming.

    "In other words, carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas. Only in academic theory are there greenhouse gases that retain temperature from day to day. In the real world, they do not exist. The reason carbon dioxide causes no warming in our atmosphere is that it cools too quickly.

    These tests further prove that no gas — whether carbon dioxide, nitrogen, methane, or even humid atmospheric air — retains heat from day to day. They all cool too quickly. Prolonged warming, if it occurs, is caused by the Sun."

    Nice catch. We're going to try to have the guy on the show.
