'Moral call to rest of the world' on climate from hardest hit countries, Obama says

Recommended Posts

Climate change is God's way.  Don't thwart the will of God. The Paris Accord, it was only the USA that was paying money; all the rest of the world was getting a free ride.

So Obama is the new Gore, how lovely! Climate change is real, and in January, Canada's Dictator Trudeau will force the cash cow Carbon tax on the Canadian population, we are

not amused.

Geezer

There is no fixed state for the planet. Sea levels have been higher before etc. CO2 levels which plants love have also been higher. That humans think they have any effect is in part arrogance and in part Y2K like greed.

 

Pollution in large conurbations is an entirely different and actual problem caused by humans and can and should be addressed. I.e. London smog in the '50's. City dwellers should have electric cars but we don't all need or have to have one. 

 

Deforestation is bad locally but the oceans can absorb and do absorb more carbon than forests. Lack of forests is a problem for forests is a problem for forest dwellers, so we have have a responsibility there, but not for the planet. 

 

Taxing carbon is simply a money grab. 

 

Maybe worshipping Gaia as an entity could be the new call and be the new religion if it isn't already and have all inhabitants on the same page and not bickering over resources.

Only a fool believes our activities and numbers have no effect.

...and I could say that only a fool believes that humans will make any long lasting effects either way. 

Pollution? Yes. Effect the planet? No.

Was it bad for the planet when the climate was a lot warmer, breadfruit in Canada, or when CO2 levels were higher, plants love it. How could all those huge plant eating dinosaurs have survived for millions of years if plants could not outgrow the demand by taking advantage of the higher CO2 levels.

There is no such thing as a "denialist brigade".

 

At most, there may be a "denialist platoon", but the vast majority of those who criticize the mandated climate narrative have a much broader and more nuanced view of the situation.

 

Some are concerned about dubious data recording practices; some are appalled by the shoddy statistics employed in some major scientific papers; some point out the anti-scientific nature of claims of absolute certainty, and others broadly accept the science but dispute the policy recommendations.

 

It is, though, a standard SJW tactic to try to lock all opponents into a single cage (and a false one at that). One of the worst pieces of "science" in the whole debate was an attempt to prove that climate skepticism was causally linked to a belief that the moon landings were faked. 

 

The author, one Stefan Lewandowsky, thought he was shoring up his social justice credentials with this attempt, but only succeeded in making a global fool of himself.

 

It's also notable that the climate zealots are always trying to portray climate skeptics as irrational lunatics, when their own side encourages and enables people like Greta Thunberg to travel the planet saying that we are most likely heading to the "end of our civilisation as we know it."

 

That really is a bit rich.

You're funny. There is no denialist brigade you say. Then you accuse anyone that isn't to be a SJW. Talk about rich!

I didn't say that, or anything close to it. Stop making stuff up.

Denialism runs deep. 

 

The trouble with these conflicts is that especially in the USA the issue has become extremely politicized. It shouldn't be. It should be facts based.

 

So if you're not an actual scientist in the field, the most rational thing is to pay attention to the VAST MAJORIY of global scientists that are. The denialists can always find a few outliers but it's much more prudent for the future of the planet to listen to the VAST MAJORITY. Sure there is a small chance they are wrong, but the price to pay for ignoring them is just too high.

Jingthing's response was another of the SJW's tactics.  Put words into posters' mouths.

Get on a plane, fly half way around the world to deliver a speech. Imagine there was all sorts of security and he needed additional space. So, let's say the entire first class cabin? How does that help this cause? Malaysia capital of oil palm plantations and deforestation.

 

The message emplores what's left of the middle class and the working poor to do their bit. Obama will just have another piece of cake.

 

How does eight years of useless wars he is responsible for in central Asia help warming?

 

Obama has taken up the gauntlet now Gore has been outed as a fraud.

 

In the end who cares? China will do nothing. Because China will do nothing, US will do nothing. Corporations will do nothing. 3 billion poor will do nothing. 3 billion middle and up really don't care. Let's all stop the noise and pretending and accept our fate.

 

Hypocrite much?

 

 

Straight talk....the only people benefiting from this are the retailers who are now charging money

for a bag.

 

Plus the big O....who probably charges 400K a pop for lending his august presence and baritone voice

to a hall full of the virtuous.
