Human Extinction through “Climate Change”?

Pirates Cove take a look at the latest from the Cult of Gore

Humanity has survived millions of years of constantly changing climate. We’ve gone through hot, we’ve gone through ice ages. Humanity has spread from the wilds of Africa to the tips of the world. We live in warm, cool, cold, hot, wet, arid. We live in mountains, we live on plains, we’re on islands, we’re in the middle of continents. Obviously, now, a tiny increase in global temps is Doom

Great points, and ones that make far more sense than the DOOM theories the Climate Change Cultists spew Propaganda that leads to questions like this

Will climate change cause humans to go extinct?

I see a lot of resources talking about near-term human extinction, or the fact that thanks to climate change my generation will see the end of humanity. How likely is an outcome like this? Is there any hope for our futures?

And, the Cult of Catastrophic Climate Catastrophies sees another false narrative die

Pirates Cove destroys yet another narrative shrivel up and die

Hey, remember when the Cult of Climastrology was blaming carbon pollution for the wildfires in California (a state that has long been subjected to wildfires because of the geography, natural climate, and idiotic environmental policies)? Most recently the Camp Fire? Well now

Pacific Gas & Electric power lines caused California’s ‘deadliest and most destructive wildfire’: officials

California authorities said Wednesday that power lines owned and operated by the Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. (PG&E) caused the state’s most destructive wildfire ever – it killed 85 and nearly destroyed an entire city.

Lines owned by the San Francisco-based utility sparked the deadly, fast-moving Camp Fire on Nov. 8 in the Pulga area of Butte County, the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said in a news release. In total, the blaze burned 153,336 acres and destroyed in excess of 18,000 structures.

“The tinder dry vegetation and Red Flag conditions consisting of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures promoted this fire and caused extreme rates of spread, rapidly burning into Pulga to the east and west into Concow, Paradise, Magalia and the outskirts of east Chico,” the agency said.

The city of Paradise – population 27,000 — was nearly wiped out as residents evacuated and their homes and vehicles were engulfed in flames. Investigators also found a second nearby ignition site involving power lines owned by PG&E and vegetation that sparked another fire.

“This fire was consumed by the original fire which started earlier near Pulga,” Cal Fire said.

Of course, it is also true that wildfires existed loooongggg before any cars, or electricity, or anything else the left blames. Wildfires are part of nature

Wine, and Climate Change Whiners

Via Pirates Cove

How Does Your Love of Wine Contribute to Climate Change?
Consumers don’t have access to much information about how businesses operate, but they can ask questions and focus on one tangible item, the bottle.

Consumers mostly do not care in the least, they just want some wine, not a lecture from anti-science buffoons.

The exquisite vulnerability of grapes to nuances of weather makes wine both particularly susceptible to climate change and a harbinger of what’s to come for many other agricultural products.

Do wine consumers have a role in encouraging producers to take stronger steps to combat climate change? Some in the wine industry think they do, particularly by throwing their economic support to companies that are already acting decisively.

“The consumer is the key to this,” Adrian Bridge, the chief executive of Taylor Fladgate, the historic port producer, wrote in an email. “Changing our own behavior matters, and asking others to change theirs as well. This does mean buying from companies that are doing a good job and avoiding companies that are not.”

Things like grapes are always going to be vulnerable to things like weather. Always have and always will.

It’s equally important for consumers to make clear to the wine industry that fighting climate change is an urgent issue. Both through their buying decisions and through old-fashioned advocacy — which might include letters and emails to producers, importers and wine publications, as well as direct conversations with wine merchants and restaurateurs — consumers must demand that the wine industry take action.

Please go read it all folks. The madness of the people who worship at the Gore Cult of Climate Change never fail to astound me with their nonsense

You can no longer parody the left, example # 13,188

Pirates Cove has this

That leads to the UK Sun, which has many pictures of the idiot lying in the road, and authorities trying to unglue her. Obviously, other outlets were covering

Nutty, on steroids

Then they came for our burgers

Oh the Green New Deal. It really is a maniacal attempt at control

Remember, the original release of the Green New Deal included

We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.

And then AOC and staff walked this back after the release, claiming it wasn’t the real document meant to be released (it was, and that link has links to the initial document), and the liberal media provided cover.

But, was it real? Consider this piece by the very left leaning UK Guardian, which is not shy about showing its biases, especially on ‘climate change’

What the Green New Deal will mean for your hamburger

Amid the various critiques of the proposed Green New Deal, few capture the alarmism of the American right quite like Sebastian Gorka’s now viral claim that the deal’s proponents “want to take away your hamburgers … this is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved”.

While it is debatable whether Stalin would have rejoiced in a vegan United States, it is true that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal for a low-carbon economy would require a major reduction in livestock production. But there doesn’t need not be an either/or choice between the Green New Deal and meat consumption: the solution to the Green New Deal’s hamburger problem lies in Silicon Valley’s “clean meat” startups.

Cellular agriculture technology can already produce meat that is virtually identical in genetics and flavor to industrially produced meat, and it can do so without harming any animals. Last week, the UK thinktank Chatham House released a report urging EU policymakers to promote rapid regulation of and investment in this new technology. The United States needs to do the same. Government investment in scaling up alternative proteins should form a backbone of the Green New Deal’s commitment to job creation, industrial innovation and food security.

Every year over 9 billion land animals are slaughtered in the United States. Beyond being a nightmare for animals, industrial agriculture contributes 14% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Cows make up 41% of that, and the United States is home to just under 100 million of them. Reducing our carbon footprint must entail abandoning industrial agriculture, but changing people’s minds about eating meat is difficult, and getting them to actually eat less meat in even harder.

Yeah, no thanks

So, a Flatulent cow, a Communist, and a Useful Idiot walk into a bar……………..

William Teach has the golden idiocy of the Notorious AOC

On premiere of ‘Desus & Mero’ show, Ocasio-Cortez explains ‘farting cows’ reference in ‘Green New Deal’

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., defended the Green New Deal after the recent rollout of the New York Democrat’s policy proposal got a lot of attention over “farting cows.”

In an appearance Thursday night on the premiere of Showtime’s late-night “Desus & Mero”show, the comedy pair hosts of the program asked the freshman congresswoman why she thought the initial reaction focused on “cow farts.”

“In the deal, what we talk about, and it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture, it’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.”

Also, she’s admitting that the farting cows thing was meant to be in the GND resolution. It was yanked out after being laughed at, of course.

“But we have to take a look at everything,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “and what we need to realize about climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives, you know?”

Ah, there it is, the poison pill of Leftism taking a look at “everything”

And therein lies the problem with the Cult of Climastrology and Modern Socialism: they want the Government involved in everything. I’d say “right now it’s farting cows. Next week it could be your use of natural gas in your house and the energy efficiency of your home”, but, they’re already coming after that.

British Statism over evil natural gas

Via Pirates Cove comes the latest in Leftism

Natural gas, propane, and similar fuels have been used for a long, long time in homes for heating and cooking. It’s cheap, it’s affordable, and it’s reliable. A goodly chunk of restaurants use it, as well. But, Warmists have a bee under their burr

Climate change: Ban gas grid for new homes ‘in six years

New homes should be banned from connecting to the gas grid within six years to tackle climate change, UK government advisers say.

They want new-build homes in the countryside to be warmed by heat pumps – and cooking done on induction hobs, rather than using gas boilers and hobs.

In cities, new housing estates and flats should be kept warm by networks of hot water, says the report.

The water could be heated by waste heat from industry.

An alternative approach is to use heat pumps, which draw warmth from the sea or lakes; or burn gas from waste.

The report, from the independent Committee on Climate Change, recommends these changes are made to new homes at first because it’s much more economical that way. They say it costs £4,800 to install low-carbon heating in a new home, but £26,300 in an existing house.

And please, worry not, we all know that central planners never EVER get anything wrong, so………….
