Obama's Climate Change Folly


Obama's climate change bill is so loony it makes even his insane financial policy look like the work of a competent government. If the world's future is in the hands of politicians and scientists is there any hope at all for saving civilisation?

Obama's Climate Change Bill Today Barack Obama's much hyped climate change bill will be debated by Americas House Of Representatives.

As I understand it the climate change bill includes a cap and trade proposal. So we rich people get to buy up the carbon allowances of all the people who cook on fires made from dried camel dung. So we actually get to pollute more.

And then China and India (roughly a third of the world's population between them) say hey, your people all have cars,power showers, jacuzzis and plasma TVs, why shouldn't ours? And they fail to agree a joint policy in Copenhagen.

Meanwhile as the thawing of the permafrost in Siberia and Alaska accelerates, the loggers keep cutting down rainforests of the equatorial belt so we in the west can sit at tables made from rare hardwoods as we chomp on our steaks and burgers.....

Like other western leaders including Britain's Cordon Brown, Obama has been seduced by the siren song of scientists who are sure if they are just handed enough money they will be able to come up with a magic CO2 bullet and reverse or at least halt climate change. As always with the science lobby, the more rational people listen to their blandishments the more we are reminded of that old maxim about scientists: often in error, never in doubt. The supporters of scientific solutions to climate change would argue that a theory stands until it is disproved. That is a fine argument when indulging in academic debate in the faculty rooms of universities.

The problem is climate change needs rapid decisions not endless debate. We have wasted too many decades on the ludicrous and futile squabbles that go on between scientists already and in considering some of their crackpot schemes to tinker with the earths weather systems we have to realise these experiments cannot be tried out on a small scale under controlled conditions. Seeding rainclouds, spraying particles in the upper atmosphere or promoting algae blooms in the oceans all look promising on paper. We must bear in mind however the evidence that any of these things will work is purely based on theory, speculative equation solving. The consequences should the experiments go wrong are simply unimaginable, and climate change science has an almost zero success rate in predicting future climate events from past trends so a bookie would be giving very longs odds on their predicting anything correctly based on some equations in which made up data is used for the variables and constants.

Scientists are nothing if not arrested adolescents and obsessive wankers though. Their mindset will simply not entertain failure. And with people like Obama and Brown, both the equal of any scientist in terms of ill - founded arrogance, intellectual vanity and egomania, prepared to back any crackpot scheme that offers a quick fix so they can strut and pose and preen as they are acclaimed the saviours of civilisation, such is their hubris they are deaf to all cautions. Both men think if they wish a thing to be then it will be.

Brown's efforts to control CO2 emissions, not a guaranteed fix by any means, are based on covering the landscape with giant wind turbines. So when the wind doesn't blow we are sit shivering in the dark. Brown and his government show little interest in more realistic sustainable technologies because these, while offering a feasible, low risk energy source, are too long term to help Brown's government be re-elected.

Obama on the other hand, apart from supporting zero benefit schemes like biofuel is pinning all his hopes on a carbon trading system. The US Government will crate a market in CO2 emissions and nations that do not use all their allowance will be able to sell part of their allocation to more developed nations that exceed theirs. The next global crisis then would be due to dealers trading in notional toxic emissions as they traded in toxic debts and notional to cause the current one. Obama's climate bill, as insane as his economic policy, is like all his other policies just the wishful thinking of a man so lost in narcissism he has seldom set foot on Planet Reality.

How Our Creature Comforts Are Baking The World
As the arguments rage on between the Climate Science Wankers lobby and the sceptis, realists and out and out deniers we observe that still nobody who gets media coverage, nobody who is talking sense about climate chaos, carbon based fuels, deforestation or over population is really being heard. Quite simply there are too many of us and we want too much. Who needs science or politics to understand that?

The Futility Of Wind Farms.In some ways the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition has made quite a good start in government. One area they are set to fail badly however is energy. Driven by politically correct thinking the coalition are set to follow Labour down the road that goes through wind power and eventually leads nowhere. Wind turbines look fine on paper. If they generate at their optimum output for 365 days a year the contribution to energy needs looks like a viable business proposition. The problem is due to the limitations of the technology and the vagaries of the weather wind farms are doing well if they operate at a quarter of their potential output.
Obama Diplomatic Goof Over LockerbieThe Obama Adminisdtration showed gobsmacking arrogance in summoning Scottish and British justice miniters to give evidence before a Senate committee into the release on humanitarian grounds of Abdelbaset al - Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber. It demonstrates nothing has changed since the Bush administration were in power.
The Gulf Oil SpillAs America, the greens and the progressive left get hysterical about oil leaking from the BP Deepwater Horizon well in the Gulf Of Mexico, The Daily Stirrer engineering expert Xavier Connolly tried to put the extent of the environmental catastrophe and its effects on marine life and human communities in perspective for our readers...
Obama And The Lockerbie BomberThe Daily Stirrer has commented many times on the racist nature of the Obama administration and the detestation of "white" people in general and the British in particular that President Barack Hussein Obama can barely be bothered to conceal. No matter we say, Britain benefits little from the so called "special relationship", the myth of which has been perpetuated by..
Did BP Lobby For Lockerbie Bomber's ReleaseThe latest measure of politically correct socialist insanity from the "progressive left" othertwise known as the populist authoritarian Labour party has come via the accusation that oil giant BP lobbied Gordon Brown's government for the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. We hope this is a total fabrication because BP, already in trouble for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig's exploding and millions of gallons of crude oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the uncapped well, may not be able to withstand a new crisis while Barack Obama is clutching at straws in his efforts to save his failed Presenency.
David Cameron Shoots Himself In The Face David Cameron had got off to such a good start in his relations with America, putting Obama in his place about economics and deficit spending, revealing plans for withdrawal from Afghanistan, pointing out the BP has not been British Petroleum for many years and getting some concessions for convicted pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon. So why has it gone wrong?

The exponentially higher intensity of 5G frequencies however, takes the health risks to humans to a whole different level.

Criminal damage in Cambridge reveals the police soft peddaling on Extinction Rebellion crimes Nobody is allowed to walk on the grass outside Trinity College Cambridge.

Otherwise, set one foot on that sacred turf and you will soon find yourself experiencing the full force of Newtonian gravity; rugby-tackled to the ground by a puce-faced porter in a bowler hat.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical. However, reports have pushed back against one "conspiracy theory" about the origins of the virus that has now infected as many as 70,000+ people in the central China city of Wuhan alone (depending on whom you believe).

Corona Virus: Should We Worry
The official data coming out of China and from other sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest an exponential growth rate. With more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic, many people are asking should we in the west be worried and how bad might things get?

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.

Quitaly Back On As Salvini Prepares To Take On The EU
