  1. Check out this wonderful opening line of "journalism": Heh. Sea level doom is an "established fact!" Manhattan WILL be underwater in a few years. Lady Liberty will be up to her chin in ocean in a few more. It's a fact. An established fact. And the evil billionaire isn't obeying us! Damn it! We must be allowed to punish him! But until then, the best we can do is find solace in our smug fantasy that his property investments will be underwater soon. That'll show him to disrespect us and our Narrative™! How utterly gauche and uncouth of this Peres thing to not heed his betters. J
  2. The key sentences in the above: "That at some point this chronic reality do reach a breaking point and I think for our generation it reached that, I wished I didn’t have to be doing every post, but sometimes I just feel like people aren’t being held accountable. Until, we start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let them have it.” Yup, we need to get down to the business of punishing the Others™. Gaia thirsts for blood. Violence is virtuous in the name of stopping climate doom. Killing is the cure. J
  3. OCASIO-CORTEZ ON MILLENNIALS: ‘WE’RE LIKE THE WORLD IS GOING TO END IN 12 YEARS IF WE DON’T ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE’ ‘At some point these chronic realities do reach a breaking point’ Jan 21, 2019 10:17 PM By Tom Elliott Play Video The world is going to end in 12 years unless the government takes action, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Monday at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. Here’s an excerpt from her interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates: “And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change. You’re biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II. And I think for younger people looking at this are more like, how are we saying let’s take it easy when 3,000 Americans died last year, how are we saying let’s take it easy when the end person died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system? How are we saying take it easy, the America that we’re living in today is dystopian with people sleeping in their cars so they can work a second job without healthcare and we’re told to settle down. It’s a fundamental separation between that fierce urgency of now, the why we can’t wait that King spoke of. That at some point this chronic reality do reach a breaking point and I think for our generation it reached that, I wished I didn’t have to be doing every post, but sometimes I just feel like people aren’t being held accountable. Until, we start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let them have it.”
  4. Ohmyfuckinggad! Weather in Nukualofa, Tonga Now 77 °F Partly cloudy. Proof of climate doom! If this keeps up at the current rate, Tonga will melt into glass and be completely underwater in three weeks. It's settled science. The only cure is to create a one-world government with absolute power and then to immediately begin torturing and killing deniers and skeptics and their children and pets. J
  5. And climate doom alarm mongers say exactly the same thing when weather doesn't support their doomsaying. When they feel that they can take advantage of weather as a scare tactic, they conveniently forget how caustically they scolded others on the distinction between weather and climate.
  6. Oh, no! More proof of man-made global warming/climate doom: https://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2019/01/15/4-7-magnitude-earthquake-reported-off-coast-of-ocean-city/ 4.7 Magnitude Earthquake Reported Off Coast Of Ocean City... Its settled science, brah. I mean just look around. You can see the global warming, man. J [Edited to change the color so that it's hotter and scarier]
  7. When I read the headline, I knew that they'd have to find a way to somehow work global warming climate doom into the story: Earth’s magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we don’t know why Earth’s magnetic field is what allows us to exist. It deflects harmful radiation. It keeps our water and atmosphere in place. But now it’s acting up — and nobody knows why. --- In the near future, man-made climate doom will be first suspected to cause this magnetic pole dance, then it will be openly blamed, and finally it will be announced to be settled consensus science, you fucking science deniers! J
  8. Judy the fucking science denier betrayer whore is at it again: National Climate Assessment: A crisis of epistemic overconfidence Posted on January 2, 2019 by curryja | 101 Comments by Judith Curry “You can say I don’t believe in gravity. But if you step off the cliff you are going down. So we can say I don’t believe climate is changing, but it is based on science.” – Katherine Hayhoe, co-author of the 4th National Climate Assessment Report. So, should we have the same confidence in the findings of the recently published 4th (U.S.) National Climate Assessment (NCA4) as we do in gravity? How convincing is the NCA4? https://judithcurry.com/2019/01/02/national-climate-assessment-a-crisis-of-epistemic-overconfidence/

    Newbsie

    OMG, Newbsie loves death. He worships it! It's his sense of life and his view of existence. Death is his metaphysical value judgment! Everything to him is doom, frustration and despair. Heh. But, seriously, cool painting. J Michael Newberry November 25, 2018 · He has borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how? (Stealing Shakespeare) mixed media, 24x20”, private collection. My attempt at a gesture oil sketch, I like it. Skulls are dark, light, anatomical, morbid; serving artists well. #skull #mixedmedia #naturemorte 4646 14 Comments
  10. It's settled science, so shut the fuck up! No coverage for anyone who disagrees. It's right to silence dissenting opinion. Real science is consensus followed by shutting dissenters the fuck up. Science is about not tolerating criticism. It's about refusing to hear it. Plug your ears. http://www.climatedepot.com/2018/12/31/watch-chuck-todd-bans-climate-deniers-from-nbc-news-meet-the-press/
  11. Climate change expert Aaron Doering charged with choking his fiancée A well-known climate change expert and professor at the University of Minnesota choked and brutally assaulted his fiancée, who told cops she fears he will kill her, according to a criminal complaint... “Aaron has received millions of dollars in grants; has published more than 80 journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings; and is the coauthor of two books, The New Landscape of Mobile Learning: Redesigning Education in an App-based World and Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching...” https://nypost.com/2018/12/28/climate-change-expert-aaron-doering-charged-with-choking-his-fiance/ ---- I wonder what triggered it. Did she express some minor skepticism of or disagreement with his settled science? Disrespected his authoritay? Millions in grants. And he's just one of the thousands of climate douches on the dole. J
  12. Judy the fucking science denier is dumping cold water on the climate doom money grab again: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/dec/27/judith-curry-sea-level-study-disputes-climate-disa/?fbclid=IwAR13JHSjwAnjj3SlNjzKx8JhVp0oTEe3FBlr4X68_vGI6fwQQq6YS7YuSMw No, I didn't call her a denier, I really didn't. I wouldn't do that. I'm a true scientist, not someone who uses intimidation tactics. Huh? My having falsely accused her of science denial is in my written testimony? Hey, look over there! What's that? Yeah, over there. Behind the thing. Hmmm, I thought that I saw something. Anyway. Um, what were we talking about? Oh, yeah, have you seen the Gaga version of A Star is Born? Heh. J
  13. A couple of days ago, on the issue of saving the world from climate doom: "We need to invent technology that's never even been invented yet." -- Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez
  14. Years ago I saw a great variation on that cartoon: First panel, titled "Then," shows that same cartoon of a man holding a sign prophesying doom, with people walking by laughing at him. The second panel, titled "Now," shows a man holding a sign which states that we are not doomed, and all of the people walking past are laughing at him. J
  15. "If we don't take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon." https://www.npr.org/2018/12/03/672893695/david-attenborough-warns-of-collapse-of-civilizations-at-u-n-climate-meeting We need to control and punish people. The little people. In fact, it may not be enough to just punish them. We need serious sacrifices. Human sacrifices. Blood. That's the only thing that will stop Climate Doom. We've backed off of the scare tactics and ridiculous predictions for a while, so now it's time to bring them back. Most people have forgotten by now how silly our previous doomsaying was, so now it'll be fresh again and more effective, especially if we can get useful idiot celebrities to go along with it, and extra-especially if we can get celebrities with a veneer of an illusion of gravitas, like non-scientist Sir David F. Attenborough! He was knighted by the queen. Were you knighted by the queen? No? Then shut the fuck up. It's settled science. We have to kill some people, lots of them, and enjoy doing it, in order to save existence. J
  16. We have to start punishing people now in order to avoid extinction. It's settle science. If you're a Denier, then you are causing our extinction, and we therefore have the right to stop you with any means necessary. We've tried to do it legally, and we've tried to do it only slightly violently. You didn't listen, so the next step is blood. Damn, it's going to be fun and gloriously righteous to punish the Deniers/Nonbelievers/Infidels! https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/nov/17/thousands-gather-to-block-london-bridges-in-climate-rebellion
  17. Oh noes! Muh, muh climate doom! Muh settled science! Muh alarm! Muh, muh, muh panic! https://reason.com/blog/2018/11/14/widely-reported-ocean-warming-study-is-w Widely Reported Alarming Ocean Warming Study Is Wrong Skeptic of catastrophic climate change projections is right about significant errors in alarming new study...
  18. Climate deniers caused the fire. We need to punish them. Dishing out punishment is virtuous. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/jerry-brown-climate-change-deniers-definitely-contributing-to-the-new-abnormal-of-wildfires/ The deniers thought their wrong thoughts, and those thoughts caused thought waves which created sparks, and the thoughts dried out brush and wood, and made the temperatures super hot. It's settled science. If you disagree, then you are a science denier and will be punished accordingly. J
  19. Trump should pivot, and rename it the Affordable Universal Transgender Muslim Climate Doom Space Force. Dems would increase funding.
  20. It really looks desperate. Heres more of classy, civil Obama: http://www.theamericanmirror.com/obama-unhinged-mocks-hillarys-emails-ebola-trump-migrant-caravan-in-under-90-seconds/ Remeber when ex-presidents had the dignity to fade from view, and then only occasionally return to elegantly deliver a few sage observations? Heh. Not Barry the agitator. Can't control himself. And he can't get beyond his favorite tactic of lying about his opponents via straw men. "They're saying that if our plan to make X happen succeeds, then the consequences will be horrific doom Y and Z. Fear mongering! Th th that th th that's all they've got is f f f fear-m m m mongering." ("Intellectual stammer," as the left press dubbed it.) And yet no one has ever made the statements that Barry claims. Rather, they are just the fear-mongering smears that he has invented about Them. Jumping around, sweating and stammering. Stumbling and bumbling. And the leftist media wishes us to believe that Barry is the ultimate in calm, deliberate sensibility, where Trump is the emoting, gesticulating infant throwing tantrums.
  21. Sully is giving opinions while trying very hard to avoid saying anything: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/we-saved-155-lives-on-the-hudson-now-lets-vote-for-leaders-wholl-protect-us-all/2018/10/29/554fd0e6-d87c-11e8-a10f-b51546b10756_story.html?utm_term=.0a6acdf74d88 Here’s some of Sully’s philosophy: "In every situation, but especially challenging ones, a leader sets the tone and must create an environment in which all can do their best. You get what you project.” Really? Is that true? Hmmm. So, when Obama projected cool confidence in the lie that we could keep our doctors and insurance plans, and save $2500 per year, we got what he projected? When he projected supreme calm and certainty when calling ISIS the “JV team,” we got what he projected? Omaha’s fabulous tone made up for his failed ideology and magically delivered what he projected? More Sully: "Whether it is calm and confidence — or fear, anger and hatred — people will respond in kind. Courage can be contagious.” Yeah, and Trump supporters view him as being courageous, and they are catching that contagion themselves. Trump stands up to the activist leftist press where previous Republican leaders feared to do so. So, Trump would be an example of courage, right? Is that what Sully is saying? Sully continues: "Today, tragically, too many people in power are projecting the worst. Many are cowardly, complicit enablers, acting against the interests of the United States, our allies and democracy…” Name names, Sully. Have the courage to do so! It’s a bit cowardly to deal in vagueness and innuendo, no? Who are you talking about? Give examples. How do we know that you’re not 'projecting the worst' right now if you won’t identify specifically whom and what you’re talking about? Sully: “...encouraging extremists at home and emboldening our adversaries abroad...” WHO is doing so? Do you mean Trump, or Maxine Waters, or whom? Sully: “...and threatening the livability of our planet...” Seriously?!!! The “livability of our planet”? Climate doom? Such statements don’t sound like the cool, deliberative leadership that you’ve just been promoting, but rather like the panicky fear-mongering that you’ve been denouncing. Sully: "Many do not respect the offices they hold; they lack — or disregard — a basic knowledge of history, science and leadership; and they act impulsively, worsening a toxic political environment.” You got that right. Most people who run for or hold political office disregard basic knowledge, specifically of the history of economics and the consequences of horrible ideologies. Sully: "The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame — a timeless beacon of right and wrong — seems dead.” Shame is dead? Yeah, I think that’s a legitimate sentiment. The left is shameless in its attacks. That began with GW Bush. The left saw that their lack of shame was effective, and increased it against McCain, and then ever more so against Romney. Trump’s immunity to it has made them lose their minds in ramping up their shamelessness. Sully: "This is not the America I know and love. We’re better than this.” Again, I don’t know what Sully is talking about. Which ideals does he value? Is he saying that we should always be nice? Is that his ideal? Socialism is okay, or communism, or even a monarchy or dictatorship, just as long as the leaders are nice when imposing those systems on us, and they speak calmly and gently? Sully: "Our ideals, shared facts and common humanity are what bind us together as a nation and a people.” Which ideals? Have the courage to name them. Sully: "Not one of these values is a political issue, but the lack of them is.” Which values? Civility over everything else? Sully: "When I volunteered for military service during wartime…” Aren’t military service and war the opposite of civility? So, then, we must assume that incivility is sometimes acceptable to Sully? Sully: "I took an oath that is similar to the one our elected officials take: 'I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'” Great! So then Sully must be saying that those who have ideologies which are opposed to the Constitution are our enemies, and we should fight against them? But do so nicely, unless we have to kill them military-style? And now I wonder what Captain Phillips would think of all of this. He and Sully should have a debate. J
  22. And, by the way, what the fuck? Things are fucking nightmare dictatorship horrible because of Trump, but, at the same time, they're great because of Obama? So how does the "logic" of this work? Obama caused this surging economy, it was just on delay-effect and it took until Trump's presidency, and, what, Trump's policies of repealing Obama's stupid shit didn't have a negative effect on the economy, and Trump's tax reduction doesn't count as either stimulating the economy or as canceling or opposing Obama's policies? Just like the unfalsifiability of leftist climate "science," all outcomes are proof of Obama's brilliance and success, and of Trump's being a failure doofus? Hahahaha! J
  23. To Ocasio-Cortez, climate "science deniers" have been cast in pretty much the same role that her fellow socialist Hilter cast the Jews. Scapegoats who need punishments. The "deniers" are the cause of all of our woes. They're evil, they're an existential threat, and they must be eliminated. Final Solution time. We're the heroes, saving humanity. They're the villains, and our extermination of them will therefore be virtuous. Not to mention fun! We're going to get to do some mass killing that we've morally justified. It's going to be so bloody and exciting. We'll show those fuckers.
  24. The left is using the same tactic in regard to the Khashoggi issue that they use for climate doom. Unfalsifiability. Just like all possible outcomes prove catastrophic manmade climate change, all potential choices of courses of action in response to the Khashoggi killing are wrong. Our Billy is even participating. It's the reason he won't answer questions about the proper course of action. He and the rest of the left wish to reserve The ability to condemn, no matter what.
