The Jonestown Massacre encapsulates the “lemming” approach to what environmentalists are continually telling us on a daily basis and what they first described as AGW (anthropogenic global warming), then “global warming” and later “climate change”. They enlisted some quasi scientists who presented biased (selective data) and often non-peer reviewed reports. Those scientists in the main, are dependent on taxpayer funded government grants (local and multinational) to ensure their claims align with political posturing.
As a result, politicians of all stripes have jumped on the bandwagon to declare we are in the midst of a “climate emergency”. The foregoing recently occurred here in Canada as our House of Commons declared a “climate emergency”. The “motion” was brought forward by Canada’s current Environment and Climate Change Minister, Catherine McKenna and was supported by all parties with the exception of the CPC! Additionally, many cities, towns, counties and municipalities in Canada have formally passed motions similar to what passed in the House of Commons declaring a “climate emergency” in their communities. The Huffington Post recently reported 447 have done so across Canada!
According to the media and some recent polls climate change ranks as one of the “top issues” on the minds of voters in the upcoming Federal election. One should expect the Green Party will rank it higher on their list than the economy or job creation but it will also rank high with the NDP and the LPC. One should expect it will rank lower on the CPC and PPC list but will still elicit their attention. In the unlikely event Elizabeth May and the Green Party won the election the plans they would make are sarcastically anticipated in a recent “tongue in cheek” article written by Robert Lyman. He wrote it in response to a tweet where; “Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, warned Canadians that we would face ‘unsafe levels’ of heat and ‘climate catastrophe’ if we do not transition off fossil fuels before the next election. It has charitably been interpreted that ‘by the next election’ she meant four year from now (i.e. 2023).”
It is unfortunate that candidates for all the parties shouldn’t be required to spend forty-four minutes watching a relatively old CBC News documentary. The documentary is titled “Doomsday Called Off (2004)” and references the UNIPCC’s (International Panel on Climate Change) prediction on “disastrous global warming” due to mankind’s use of fossil fuels. The documentary reviews some of the IPCC’s forecasts; with observations, research and comments from internationally acclaimed climatologists. The IPCC predictions; such as rising ocean levels that will swallow the Maldives (located in the Indian Ocean), are shown to be falsehoods. Predicted ocean level rising also seems to be a problem in the Pacific Ocean as a report from Australia tracking over 100 years of sea levels starting in 1914 at Fort Denison, Sydney noted sea levels were actually lower in 2019 than 1914.
To reinforce the coming of the “Doomsday”, a favourite action of those quasi scientists, environmental groups and politicians, is to select data reinforcing their beliefs. One such recent example was when Environment Canada (EC) omitted a century’s worth of observed weather data in developing computer models on the impacts of climate change. The “climate models” developed by EC were used by Minister McKenna to push for more action which presumably will lead to further increases in the carbon tax in the event the Liberals are re-elected.
Yet another contact of mine led me to a one (1) hour recent documentary titled: “Climate Forcing | Our Future is Cold”. It has received over 221,000 views since its publication on August 28, 2019 and destroys the premise “the science is settled”. It highlights the various model(s) used for the studies has, “three insurmountable and “relatively obvious flaws”! The scientists appearing and vocalizing the documentary go through those flaws in detail. They highlight the omissions of the models used by the reported “97%” of “scientists” who stake their future on continuing grants via their political masters in the UN and elsewhere. I would recommend those who either believe or don’t believe the science is settled to spend an hour watching the documentary.
One article I was alerted to recently was a Kurt Schlichter article headlined in the US media company, Townhall as, “Climate Change Is a Hoax”. The article, in an amusing way, highlights how the various forecasts of an ice age or global warming have been around for decades and the time when the disastrous event is forecast to happen is invariably missed. The following from the article will please the skeptics; “only a climate denier – Climate, I deny thee! – might wonder why we should hand over one, ten, a hundred trillion bucks to people who have never once been right about their predictions. You evidently hate “science” if you expect the “science” people to be correct at least one time in a half century.” Along those lines it was also recently reported that Chancellor Merkel of Germany “pledged a 54 billion euros ($60 billion) program to put its climate target back on track without abandoning its long-standing policy of zero deficit spending.” To put both Schlichter’s article and Germany’s pledge in context; Germany has the second highest residential electricity rates in the EU and as recently reported 340,000 electricity customers in Germany have their power cut off each year for failing to pay bills. Apparently “climate change” actions will create “energy poverty”!
Climate Change is also blamed for major environmental catastrophes including hurricanes, 100 year floods, etc. and this is gaining momentum as insurance claims reputedly rise. It is interesting to look at the flooding aspect as it has hit home in Ontario with two 100 year floods reputedly occurring in just the last three years. If environmentalists and those who profess to be journalists would do some proper research, perhaps, they would be intrigued, nay, enlightened by what real scientists and experts are reporting with the aid of actual weather reports dating back over 150 years. One such recent report from Dr. John Robson labelled; “Urban Flooding – Rainfall hasn’t increased, so what’s changed?” is one such short video with several “experts”. One disclosure notes the UN IPCC reported: “In the United States and Canada during the 20th Century and in the early 21st Century, there is no compelling evidence for climate-driven changes in the magnitude or frequency of floods”! Despite the foregoing available information, the author of an article reporting the “two 100 year floods” published on the TVO website Sept. 20, 2019 suggests “people must better prepare themselves for climate-change-related disasters.” Perhaps the writer should “better prepare” to compose fact-based articles or write fiction!
Related to the flooding but ignored by the media and environmentalists is the more probable cause of much of the flooding around Lake Ontario. Specifically, the flooding in 2017 and 2019 connects to the International Joint Commission’s (IJC) Plan 2014. The “Plan” was signed off on December 5, 2016 by outgoing US President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Plan 2014 was launched January 2017 and the first 100-year flood occurred that year followed by yet another in 2019! Plan 2014 was designed to increase and retain higher water levels in Lake Ontario with one prime objective aimed at increasing wetlands. Sarah Delicate who heads up United Shoreline Ontario has compiled a fact-based video; Understanding PLAN 2014 for Municipalities which lays out the objectives of the “Plan” and the outcomes! The outcome was; major flooding occurred around all of Lake Ontario and cost residents, businesses and municipalities in Ontario and New York State hundreds of millions of dollars. On top of that the “Plan” was basically finalized by a “secret” panel.
Conclusion: The time has come for those quasi-scientists to admit they can’t honestly conclude mankind’s activities and use of fossil fuels has had any significant influence on the “climate”! By doing so, they would hopefully placate environmentalists and politicians who seem intent on destroying the improved state of humanity while severely impacting the economies in numerous countries.
No need to keep feeding us the continuing saga of “climate change” and the reputed “emergency” we face! Mandating mankind to use industrial wind turbines and solar panels to power the globe will ensure the progress we have seen globally to improve the state of impoverished nations will cease.
Stop feeding us the Kool-Aid and destroying mankind’s progress!
