Activists and Hypocrisy

Via Pirates Cove

(UK Daily Mail) Activists are calling for cigarette packet-style labels on disposable coffee cups to remind people they are harming the environment when they buy them.

Anna Warren, a communications officer for North Sydney Council, has started a petition to make coffee cups ‘uncool.’

She wants drinkers to keep a plastic cup on them at all times and re-use it to save the environment.

This is what I mean about being a bit unhinged

The paper cups are not recyclable due to their waterproof plastic lining and are the second biggest filler of landfill space after plastic bags with 2.6billion thrown away every year.

Ms Warren is encouraging the big coffee brands to introduce labels reminding drinkers that the cups go to landfill, similar to the ‘smoking kills’ reminders on cigarettes.

Using non-recyclable cups to shame people into recycling?

Your shockingly not very shocking news of the day

So, how bad will climate change really be…………..

Pirates Cove has the reveal

(UK Express) CLIMATE change is likely to be markedly less severe than forecast, a study claimed yesterday.

It predicted that the impact could be up to 45 per cent less intense than is widely accepted.

So, we are not all going to perish then?

Why does the Gore Cult of Climate Change hate science?

The SCIENCE is SETTLED! Right? No?

At least not to Think Progress

From the link

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reportedly planning to further restrict the use of scientific evidence in rule-making. The plans are inspired by efforts championed by one of Congress’ most notorious climate science deniers, House Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX).

The EPA’s initiative was discussed during a closed-door meeting on March 15 at the Heritage Foundation — a Washington, D.C. think tank known for promoting climate science denial and which was instrumental in influencing Trump’s transition team — E&E News reported Friday.

If adopted, the plan would require the EPA to rely only on scientific studies where the underlying data used by the researchers is made public. The impact would be to impose a dramatic burden on EPA officials effectively limiting their ability to introduce new protections for health and the environment.

So, Think Progress hates science hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Cult of Climate Change to “skeptics” SHUT UP or else!

Dissent must be punished!

Calls to punish global warming skepticism as a criminal offense have surged in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, but it hasn’t discouraged climate scientists like Judith Curry.

A retired Georgia Tech professor, she argued on her Climate Etc. website that Irma, which hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Saturday, was fueled in large part by “very weak” wind shear and that the hurricane intensified despite Atlantic Ocean temperatures that weren’t unusually warm.

That is the kind of talk that could get policymakers who heed her research hauled before the justice system, if some of those in the climate change movement have their way.

“Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the Sept. 1 headline in the Outline. Mark Hertsgaard argued in a Sept. 7 article in the Nation, titled “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

Remember when dissent WAS patriotism? Yeah, not so much anymore

Forcing nations to adhere to climate pacts? How totalitarian

Statists gonna be Statists

Quite possibly one of the most cultish headlines from Warmists of all time

Adhering to global climate pacts should no longer be optional
With millions affected by soaring temperatures around the globe and forest fires ripping through continents as we speak, curbing industrial poison is anything but an abstract aspiration

And Warmists complain when I note that this is all about Progressive (nice fascist) politics rather than science.

Of course, the fire the article refers to is the one along the French Riviera. Sadly for these Warmist, officials suspect arson, not Hotcoldwetdry.

As whales continue to wash up on the world’s shores with piles of plastic in their stomachs, the issue is no longer a theory that we can optionally espouse as a worthy cause.

In short, they would like to see an international State, because national sovereignty is bad for the environment or something

Members of the Gore Cult of Climate Change working harder to indoctrinate our kids

Because critical thinking and exploring all the facts is, well, dangerous apparently

A fight is being waged to ensure the science behind global warming is taught in US schools as some states move to wipe it from the curriculum. Is the United States raising a new generation of climate-change deniers?

See, those evil climate-change deniers are waging a war on science

Brandie Freeman is a high school science teacher in the southern US state of Georgia. She recently opened her mailbox one morning to find something unpleasant lurking inside: A book, ostensibly a teaching guide, with the title “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming.”

Oh the horrors! An unpleasant book, cleverly disguised as a “teaching guide” lurking, maybe even stalking poor Brandie Freeman!

Oh but there is more

It wasn’t entirely a surprise. Freeman had a heard about the publication – produced by the Heartland Institute, a climate-change denial group with links to the fossil fuel industry – from fellow teachers. The group has reportedly sent out 25,000 copies to teachers around the country in March, and plans to send out 200,000 in total.

AHA!!!!!!!! Wait did I use eight exclamation points? Of course I did, I must warn all of you that there might be “teaching guides”, with links to, the evil fossil fuel industry lurking in your mailbox, waiting to make you question climate change science. If you encounter such a thing lurking in your mailbox run away! And remember comrades that climate change science is settled! It is scientifically settled scientific science. But back to poor Brandie Freeman

Freeman says most of her colleagues in “more liberal” states chucked their copies “straight in the recycling bin.” But in Georgia, which she describes as “very conservative,” Freeman felt the book posed a real danger.

Danger, oh yes comrades! Dangerously dangerous danger! If students are allowed to question the scientifically scientific science of climate change, well they might do some research on the subject. Research leads to questions, which leads to more questions, and eventually to thinking!

“As soon as you just even open the door to your students that there is doubt among scientists – which there isn’t – then that allows them to have the seed planted that they can go to these climate-skeptic websites.”

See, there will be no thought seeds planted on Brandie Freeman’s watch!

Let’s rename Earth Day something more appropriate shall we?

How about money grubbing Leftists Day?

March for Science events to take place around the globe

Thousands of people are expected to attend March for Science events around the world to promote the understanding of science and defend it from various attacks, including U.S. government budget cuts.

The March for Science was dreamed up at the Women’s March on Washington, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January. Saturday is also Earth Day.

As Jo Nova explains

The March for Science is on Saturday.

Will J Grant and Rod Lambert struggled with the message behind the “March for Science” at The Conversation. We should march, they said a month ago, because “science is a human process”, which will be news to people who thought science was about evidence and reason instead. On Saturday they will be marching for the kind of science that is “passion” and “belief”. Don’t turn up thinking this is about the dispassionate Laws of Physics. You’ll be at the wrong rally.

The March seems to be fighting strawmen. It is supposedly about “Encouraging scientists to share their research” (as if scientists like to hide their research). We know they hide their data, their methods and their adjustments, but when the ABC turns up to interview them, they don’t seem to hide their opinions. They hide their declines but don’t hide their Nobel Prizes (even if they didn’t get them). Do they need encouragement?

Jo’s #1 conclusion about the march?

Those who can’t discover something useful have to march in the streets instead. The March is one big Pat-on-The-Back for the crusaders for taxpayer funds.

Ah taxpayer funds, that are enriching certain people . That is the “green” they care about
