Man’s C02 emissions are like a fart compared to a volcano eruption, or forest fires. Yes the climate is changing, like the tropical planet we had when the dinosaurs roamed, or like the many ice ages that we have had. The climate is always changing, but man’s contribution is negligible. Throwing money at the problem only makes the rich, richer. It’s laughable to think that the same people who can’t keep the sidewalks free from homeless crap are going to clean the planets atmosphere.February 12, 2022 at 10:18 pm #205195
Woke Army’s war on climate change
U.S. Army releases plan to address climate change
By David Knowles·Senior Editor
Thu, February 10, 2022
The U.S. Army unveiled a new strategy Tuesday for dealing with global disruptions caused by climate change, which it says “endangers national and economic security. . . .”
Part of the Army plan includes making all military installations more self-sufficient in terms of energy and water needs, but it also calls for a sweeping transformation to sources of clean energy, switching to an all-electric fleet of noncombat vehicles by 2035 and for the development of electric combat vehicles by 2050.February 12, 2022 at 11:18 pm #205205John B.Participant

France Travel: Many Short-Haul Flights Outlawed From April
Alex Ledsom Senior Contributor
The French government has become the first large economy to ban short-haul flights where a train or bus alternative of two and a half hours or less exists–a move which was voted on in 2021 and comes into effect in April 2022.
The ban is an attempt to reduce the country’s carbon emissions arising from plane travel–a move which The Guardian reported could eliminate 12% of French domestic flights.
Comment: so, if 100 people decide to drive their cars for two hours, how much CO2 does that save vs all take a flight?April 7, 2022 at 10:34 am #207560SHANNON DParticipant
I have always asked these “environmental Nazi’s”, if Co2 is such a problem we should plant more trees..April 7, 2022 at 11:35 am #207562
Earth’s warmer periods are its most prosperous. The world has experienced great growth because we are in one of its warmer periods between ice ages, creating longer growing seasons and increased evaporation causing more precipitation (rainfall). Earth’s cooler periods are it’s driest, less productive.
Exactly what harm is going to come from warmer climate? The oceans are not rising like these alarmists predicted. How many times have you seen these climate alarmists fret over the artic polar ice cap melting? Do you know how much the ocean would rise if the entire ice cap melted? Answer: 0 inches. Melting ice in water does not increase water level period, otherwise the melting ice cubes in your glass of tea would cause it to overflow.
Well, then they will fret over ice on land melting, like Greenland. Well, you know during warmer periods the atmosphere is holding a lot more water which has a greater greenhouse effect than Co2.
The global warming increase has fallen well below even the most conservative projections. Some models projected us having great temperature increases by now. In order to add to average temperature increase they shut down most rural reporting stations and primarily just use those inside cities which cities are usually a little warmer.April 9, 2022 at 3:41 pm #207626James NParticipant
Ever drive by a landfill that’s been plowed over and see those pipes venting methane and whatever else directly into the air. I wonder if they have regulations on that? Or do they just want to destroy the ranching industry so little billy gates can make burgers out of dandelions.May 23, 2022 at 12:16 am #209517
New Evidence Shows Global Warming has Slowed Dramatically Over Last 20 Years
Further scientific evidence that global warming starting to run out of steam over two decades ago has been presented by an international group of leading scientists. In a major re-evaluation of data from meteorology balloons rising through the troposphere, the scientists confirmed that temperatures have mostly paused since around 1998. The discovery can only add to pressure to re-open the so-called ‘settled science’ debate around global warming and the central part it plays in the 30-year rush towards Net Zero. . . . The slowdown since 1998 observed in the balloon data is confirmed by accurate satellite data, which also shows a current pause of about 91 months.
The article also states, “An earlier pause from 1998 to 2012 has been largely wiped from all the major surface temperature datasets.”
Now why would that data be wiped? It’s like why would Hillary wipe the data off of her email servers? But thankfully we have weather balloons and satellites as a fall back to wiped ground based data.
Didn’t a couple of years ago climate alarmists Greta Thornburg, Biden, and others say we had 12 years to fix it or we’re doomed?

“New Evidence Shows Global Warming has Slowed Dramatically…”
Hence, the term “Climate Change” – whether we get hotter or cooler, the drum can still be beaten…May 23, 2022 at 3:03 pm #209547James NParticipant
Ordinary people aren’t manipulating weather patterns like the government or military does. Long known fact that Beijing manipulated the weather so the opening ceremonies of the Olympics were clear both times. Weather was manipulated when Chernoybl was going down so the radiation wouldn’t travel to Moscow. And how many countless other times that we don’t know about.
What kind of effect does that have on a global system like weather.
Like I said before, the Green New deal and all its incarnations are just the rats carrying the fleas which spread the plague that is Agenda 2030.May 23, 2022 at 10:46 pm #209557
Do any here who voted for Biden have buyer’s remorse? The U.S. went from energy independent under Trump to the Eco Freaks in the White House who view oil as “evil” derailing the oil industry. Diesel fuel is up 75% from a year ago.
Diesel Crisis Looms as US Supplies Running on Fumes
Kyle Bass, the chief investment officer at Hayman Capital Management, was blunt in his assessment of the situation, blaming today’s dire situation on environmental activists and organizations.
“@GretaThunberg and @Earthjustice will have contributed to children around the globe dying from lack of food availability because their climate shaming didn’t come with a complete understanding of proper, incremental energy transition policy,” Bass wrote on Twitter last week.
“When the East coast runs out of diesel this summer, maybe then we will have a few of the galaxy brains in DC think they might have mortal errors in their energy transition plans.”May 24, 2022 at 1:02 am #209560
President Biden seems to praise high gas prices as ‘incredible transition’ Americans must go through
“Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said, seeming to justify or praise those sky-high prices Americans face at the pump.
