Elizabeth Warren’s Wonderful New Green World

February 1, 2019

By Paul Homewood

 

 

The US version of Jeremy Corbyn thinks that cold winters are due to global warming!

Perhaps she might like to ask NOAA why their heavily tampered temperature data shows the total opposite, with extremely cold winters a thing of the past:

Of course, NOAA’s adjusted data might be wrong!

 

 

Meanwhile, Warren’s voters in Massachusetts and the rest of New England are relying on those very same fossil fuels, which she wants to demonise, for 52% of their electricity today.

A further 25% comes from nuclear, which her green friends also want to ban.

And the amount of gas used for electricity generation is dwarfed by consumption by domestic and industrial users:

The hard left Senator wants children to be able to grow up in a world where they can breathe the air & drink the water (which of course they do already).

If she gets her way, however, they will all freeze in their beds first.

    As the BBC said yesterday, when reporting on the polar vortex, climate change is likely to cause more extreme temperature variation (hot and cold).
    The extremely gullible will believe that.

    I worked on and off just north of Cleveland Ohio as an Engineer for over fifteen years round the turn of the century. The winters were awful, minus forty near the lake (Erie) shore were not uncommon. The lake froze over late October and became three feet thick in a normal year. They also occasionally had “ice storms” where cloud cover from the Lake would slip over the land at say minus twenty or more and pour in short sharp terrential rain which froze on instant contact with the ground. They brought traffic to an immediate stop with thick ice on the glass which then froze them to the ground. In less than an hour things started to recover.

    Are they still happening?

    There really are two types of people in the world, those who want to be left alone and those who want to tell everybody what to do. sadly the first group never learns that if you give the second group an inch, they will take every penny you own and waste it.

      Such a cynical outlook! Damn, I wish I had said it first! Now I’m going to have to steal it!

    It’s a fact that people who are no good at anything go into politics, where they are right at home amongst equals. Most of them couldn’t run the proverbial.

    Just look at the leaders of the main parties in the UK. Would you trust any of them to do anything sensible?

    The Left has no platform except pandering to social causes. It’s about time they come up with something useful for governing.

    Just an couple comments based on 7 decades of casual observation: I, my children and my grandchildren have been able to breath and drink water. My children and my grandchildren may have had cleaner air than I did. Three generations have been well fed. We’ve lived in NC/VA, New Orleans, Michigan and Alaska and survived all kinds of extreme weather. My kids, over a 21 year period, went to school in Michigan, played outside and my son and I hve camped out at -25F. The Michigan crew is doing quite well in this extreme weather event.

    I’ve survived extreme heat in the South during the days before air conditioning.

    I’ve seen polio victims in iron lungs. Measles, mumps, chicken pox and pertussis were fairly common when I was a child. TB was common enough that we had mobile x-ray screening. My grandkids will see none of that.

    Has anyone asked Fauxcohantas what country she is talking about?

    Anyone really seriously worried about extreme weather (including sea level peaks) would advocate for more spending on improving sea walls and other infrastructure. That of course would boost those nasty construction corporations, and would not demonise a particular section of the economy, hence it totally fails to appeal as a policy for the nasty Left.

      It doesn’t fit the agenda, true. The idea is to destroy the energy industry, drop population back to the levels of pre Little Ice Age days, which, if we are to believe the scientists at one of those Universities in the UK, was caused by colonization killing off native populations in the new world with disease, thus, in effect, leave these resources for the elite to use at a later date. Attempting to preserve civilization as it is would be counter productive.

      • February 2, 2019 12:33 pm

        Yes, climate change is not a problem to be dealt with, it is a problem to be exploited for political purposes. The Green/left worldview is that everything was perfect until colonisation then capitalism happened. They bury the fact that Homo sapiens decimated animal species as we spread across the world tens of thousands of years ago.

    Elizabeth Warren’s bid to win the presidential race for the Dems in 2020 is now looking even more unlikely. Having catastrophically failed to prove that she has North American Indian blood in her veins (in fact, less than the average American citizen!) she has now failed to burnish her Green credentials ‘bigly’.

    Some of us have sufficiently long memories to remember exactly what the warmunists predicted in the 1980s and 1990s for winter now – no snow and mild stormy wet winters, including the end of skiing in the Alps. Their current pretence that the continued presence of hard cold winters is somehow proof of their CAGW theory is sophistry and relies on the goldfish memories of the millennial generation.

      Agreed Chris, but the Snowflakes are taking it in.

    There have been some power outages because of the weather, not much fun when your gas heating boiler needs electricity to run. Wind and solar would of course ensure total reliability of supply…

      Just as well we all have our wood burning fires and stoves. When the electric and gas grids go down and the oil is rationed and coal banned from sale, i’ll stay warm by continuing to grow and cut trees. Such is ‘progressive’ politics.

    Allow me to chime in on Focahontas. President Donald J. Trump (amid howls from the left that he is “un-presidential”) has had a lot of fun with her claim to be part American Indian. It turns out she has less of that DNA than most other Americans. In a play on her campaign banner: Warren 2020, Trump tweeted: Warren 1/2020th. How can he be “un-presidential” as he IS the President?

    By far the best are his tweets after her disastrous commercial as just the average squaw swilling a beer in her kitchen It is on par with John Kerry’s Ohio duck hunt when he went into a local store and said, “Can I get me a huntin’ license?” You could tell they were more at home with white wine and brie.

    Here is The Donald’s first tweet on Jan. 13, 2019
    “If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas, did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!”

    My personal favorite is the second one:
    “Best line in the Elizabeth Warren beer catastrophe is, to her husband, “Thank you for being here. I’m glad you’re here”. It’s their house, he’s supposed to be there!”

    For someone who wants us all to be poor, here are her income tax disclosures as a Senator:
    According to the federal income tax returns uploaded to her Elizabeth Warren for Senate website, Elizabeth Warren’s total income per year:

    2008: $ 831,021.00
    2009: 980,670.00
    2010: 954,721.00
    2011: 616,181.00
    2012: 424,993.00
    2013: 1,070,909.00
    2014: 1,607,114.00
    2015: 1,173,829.00
    2016: 762,785.00
    2017: 972,654.00

      The Donald’s unpresidentiality is why I like him so much, wish we had someone similar to vote for here in the UK.

        Jacob Rees-Mogg is my wish for Prime Minister. The Victorians had honesty and integrity. Back to the future, since everything post 1960 (1908) has been dishonest and dissembling.

        Is it not refreshing to have someone who calls a spade a spade? He is plain spoken and says what he thinks. That is what makes a person successful as a businessman, a real-estate developer, etc. We have had enough of the so-called “educated” Harvard faculty lounge types. “Nuance” is a euphemism for lying.

    According to NOAA the trend for winter (DJF) average temperatures from 1997 (El-Nino) through 2017 in the US Upper Midwest region is getting cooler at minus 1.1°F per decade.

    More CO2 is needed?

    I was operating a fleet of lorries in the winter of 1962/3 when we endured weeks of very low temperatures, and of course we were told by the experts that this was the start of a new ice age. In those days it was called weather! Nowadays of course the purveyors of ‘bullshit’ call it climate.In the Cambridgeshire Fens where many people work outdoors it’s still known as weather!
    A healthy New Year to you all.

    I’m so glad that light weight is not a Republican. Almost as glad as I am that I will never have to be stationed in Massachusetts again.

    “Green” propaganda about the “Anthropocene” is the exact reverse of reality. The real Anthropocene, a mass extinction of animal species, happened when Homo sapiens emerged and spread around the world, hunting and burning. We are now in a reverse-anthropocene, for example only a few centuries ago people ate blackbirds in pies, now we put out food for them in the winter, at least in prosperous countries, made that way by … combustion of fossil fuels.
