The Paris Climate Accord fraud

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a great assessment, and puts into perspective the fact that climate science on the political discourse is nothing more than a cudgel. The left have been more than willing to take any institution or viewpoint that has the respect of people and tear it apart in a transparent effort to get their way. The fact that people do basically nothing to "combat global warming" yet get praised because they pointlessly signed onto some accord, demonstrates its a social movement, and nothing more. It's a microcosm of the era we're in of virtue signaling. You don't need to do anything virtuous, just demonstrate you agree with the left (signaling your virtue), and don't be an impediment to giving them their way.

 

As a result of this political hijacking and weaponizing of the sciences, the consistent lack of results of models and doomsday prophets, should there be any actual "climate emergency" the climate sciences demonstrate, the inevitable result is no one believes it until we see it come to fruition. A classic "boy who cried wolf" scenario. It makes little sense to cave to people trying to abuse the trust people had in science just because they want their way. Give them nothing.

Currently 8F and the wind is howling, send me some.

 

Anyway on the subject I always thought it was amusing that it was called the Paris Accord, one of the Brexit related issues is that the French are very well know for agreeing to all sorts of things if they feel it makes them look good with no intention of following through on implementation, seems a cultural issue. 

 

Now it is called virtue signalling, the problem arises when others participate and think they should do something.

It was 80F here on Saturday when I had to go to Downtown LA for this thing with my SIL (who is still here until this weekend). Crazy. Much more normal today, about 60F, a little hazy.

Well -15F last night, weather forecast has a winter storm warning, starting tomorrow.

 

It is the wind... The cold I can deal with.

BC and other Canadian provinces are trying to pass stricter laws/implement ridiculous policies (in tandem with the federal government) and screw Alberta's resource sextraction industry.

We have had a bit this week, wind blew out my driveway today, but blew in my path so digging to do in the morning, as long as the wind is ok I can keep it clear with my ATV, otherwise I have friend with a Backhoe.

 

If it just lay nice and bright and even all would be fine, it is the wind.... Looks like we are just about to hit minus again, at least it will be warmer tomorrow.

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.
