    Default Here, you heartless bastards ...

    Take your post hoc ergo propter hoc and shove it where the sun never shines ... which apparently is Indonesia.

    How climate change is hitting vulnerable Indonesian trans sex workers
    Nearly 93% of respondents saw decreased income during the rainy season


    Btw, have you guys ever noticed that "climate change" is only blamed for negatives, but never ever for anything positive? You'd think it might be a bit more ... oh, I don't know ... 50/50.

    God forbid they publish a complementary article to the above one, like Indonesian Umbrella Sales Up Thanks To The Evil Molecule.

    Or, Billions More Can Eat Thanks To Increased Atmospheric Plant Food and More Favorable Growing Conditions. Helping global starvation seems kind of like a little plus, wouldn't you say?

    This negative bias alone exposes that the entire claim is pure fraud ... not that it isn't self-evident for a thousand other reasons.

    Yes, I've said this before, would it be better or worse if average temperatures went up or down by 1-2 degrees F?

    What guarantee was ever given that the weather wouldn't or shouldn't change in the first place?

    The "climate" here varies 120 degrees F each year, depending on whether it's winter or summer. I still see little old ladies at the grocery store in the middle of winter; I guess they're a stronger stock than those women in Switzerland? I don't believe that, but it's what the state media wants us to believe.

    It's more accurate to say the "weather" in your area varies by 120F each year.

    Weather is what actually happens. Climate is a mathematical abstraction; you might say it is the strange attractor of weather.

    "Climate" is arbitrarily defined as the 30-year moving average of the weather of an equally arbitrary region.

    So let in the insanity. To claim that the global climate - the 30-year average across a globe that varies from -126F to 136F - has increased 1.5F over the past 150 years, and that 100% of that change in the time series, (i.e., the change in the signal) can be blamed on CO2 released by man, and 0% can be attributed to the stupendous natural variability (i.e., the natural "noise"), is SO. FUCKING. STUPID.

    For most of the last 500 million years, the Earth has been about 20F warmer than today, and life absolutely flourished. No tipping points. No run-away feedbacks. No boiling oceans.

    The only things endangered by a 1.5F warming are snowflakes who don't even know which bathroom to use to take a dump.

    Professor Valentina Zharkova and the Little Ice Age Which Has Already Started

    Professor Valentina Zharkova and the Little Ice Age Which Has Already Started
    Astrophysicist Professor Valentina Zharkova explains that instead of CO2, it is the Sun that drives the climate change and because of its decreasing activity we should be ready for a colder period.

    However, her research has focused on the Sun and she can confirm that, unlike CO2, the Sun plays a major role in Earth's climate change. So much so, in fact, that Zharkova's research suggests that we have entered a colder period, or essentially a little ice age, in the next 30 years, as the sun's activity weakens in the context of global warming.

    In other words, there is not a question of Zharkova - or any other scientist who is justifiably skeptical about the omnipotent power of the CO2 molecule to warm the air - denying climate change. On the contrary, climate change and the cooling or warming of temperatures are very real, she asserts. For example, Zharkova points out that in Scotland, where she has lived for many years, the weather was much warmer 2,000 years ago. "The Romans were growing grapes and making wine in Scotland at that time, for example," she says.

    However, between 1645 and 1715, for example, the period known as the Maunder Minimum, when the Sun's activity weakened particularly sharply, the weather in Europe became much colder. Britain's major rivers – such as the Thames and Tyne – could be skated on, and the Dutch canals regularly froze over. Alpine glaciers widened and absorbed large areas of arable land, and the ice mass expanded strongly southwards from the Arctic. Temperatures across the planet were much lower – in Europe and North America, for example, up to 5 to 7 C colder in places. This is a huge change.


    Zharkova estimates using some previous research that on average - which of course means much larger changes from region to region - the Earth's temperature will fall by 1 degree Celsius over the next 30 years, and not rise, as the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns us.

    She explains that such abrupt changes depend on the cycles of solar activity. When the Sun is less active, its decreasing magnetic field causes a decrease in irradiance. Less solar radiation means less heat. According to Zharkova, such a change occurs every 350-400 years (grand solar cycle or GSC), and she says we entered one of the Grand Solar Minima (GSM) separating GSCs in 2020. This GSM will continue until 2053 after which in cycle 28 the solar activity will return to normal.
    The sun's output and Earth's relative position in orbit are more influential to the surface temperature than a trace gas in the atmosphere? Shocking conclusion!

    A reminder:

    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.

    And this just in: Antarctica Is Colder, Icier Today Than At Any Time In 5,000 Years - Climate Change Dispatch

    More evidence emerges that Antarctica has undergone rapid glacier and sea ice expansion in recent centuries, in line with the long-term and recent Antarctic cooling trend. [emphasis, links added]

    West Antarctica’s mean annual surface temperatures cooled by more than -1.8C (-0.93C per decade) from 1999-2018 (Zhang et al., 2023).


    Not just West Antarctica, but most of the continent also has cooled by more than 1C in the 21st century. See, for example, the ~1C per decade cooling trend for East Antarctica (2000 to 2018) shown in Fig. ES1 (right).

    Doncha know, Rip; global warming causes more snow and colder temperatures?

    (This is indeed what these psychopaths say.)
