There’s no satisfying these lunatics, is there?

For years they have been ordering us to work from home to save the planet. Now the bright sparks have cottoned on that it has made bugger all difference!

They won’t be happy till we are back in the dark ages, with no technology and no life.

    Why blame big tech companies? it’s our choice.

      “It’s our choice”

      That’s the problem, isn’t it. They don’t want it to be our choice.

    We have a lot of footprints in snow here in Washington State, so a carbon footprint is not of concern. Snow footprints are better for one’s health than Zoom meetings and other on-line activities.
    After making footprints in snow, sitting with feet toward a nice fire while sipping a comforting drink is of utmost importance.
    Gaia approves. I asked.

    And telling us this right after telling us not to drive our cars but charging us for it if we do? Insanity on steroids.

      “ us not to get the benefits that Brexit should give us.”
      So, what benefits does this clown think a no deal TransEnd will give us?

    They use technology to warn us about using technology..makes sense.. 😦

      ON yet another level of irony, anti-social big tech who are behind it.

    It’s the old ratio – 80% of us are fools the other 20% are not.

      My concern is that there is a lot less than 20% of us….

    If you remember, last year they reckoned bitcoin was using 0.21% of the world’s energy, like adding another Switzerland.

      I was listening to a programme about the role and scope of big data storage, servers and the like. One of the tech persons said that the servers and storage worldwide consumed 1% of global electricity but by 2030 they would be consuming 6%. These are big numbers. I don’t knowhow many extra windmills that would take but it is bad news for birds and bats.

    And no difference in the way the climate works.

    You are right Paul. The one thing about environmentalist/alarmists is that they will never be satisfied. They will always come back for more and more. Its never ending and never can be as, if they stop, they will have nowhere to spend their anger and then what would they do.

    This is definitely true, and the message must be spread far and wide!!

    Only idiots will believe it, and hopefully they will stay off the Internet and stop bothering us.

    Nuclear power, problem solved. Or should that be non problem solved?

    Just seen Amazon’s green washing advert on TV, at the end windmills come up and in the whistling wind you can clearly hear the unbearable pulsating whhhk whhhk whhhk whhhk noise pollution they create!

    Until the insane governments ban all diesel trucks and trains, it’s our RESPONSIBILITY (yes, you and me) to consume as much fried food as possible! Renewable diesel from used frying oil supplied about 4.2% of the daily fuel requirements before restaurants and bars were closed to ‘save’ us from ourselves.

    https://www.freightwaves.com/news/restaurant-grease-for-renewable-diesel-in-short-supply

    Many inhabited parts of the world are inaccessible by boat or train, requiring some version of a truck/lorry to deliver needed supplies to where the people are. As shown in an earlier post here, a large tractor-trailer (Tesla?) requires ~4,000 homes’ worth of electricity to charge its batteries. System not quite up to the planned demand… battery tech will save(?) us; except for the CO2 emitted during their construction and transportation.

    Where does this insanity end? As envisioned/known by the greenies/alarmists, there will be enough electricity to charge all the EV’s – all the EV’s they say we’re allowed to plug in.
    Can’t plug in? Check your bicycle tires’ air pressure. We’ll be told that we have to live right next to the (electric) rail system. Major high rises. Built using all-electric machinery, all materials delivered by EV’s of varying sizes.

    A drop in calamari and fries (and Mexican deep-fried ice cream!) consumption might be reflected in reduced coronary heart disease – in 10 to 30(?) years. Our various country’s health systems will laud that improvement, but decry the unexpected drain on the system by older people living well past our actuarial pull dates.

    And since when has a “carbon footprint” caused climate change???

    I wonder if I get it right ? They think that using the internet causes global warming? I suppose that means they will keep off the internet and stop harassing the rest of us.? That will be best for all concerned and they can print newspapers if they can source the paper and ink “ethically “.

    I should think that PM Johnson is only trying to survive until he gets Brexit done as politicians have to consider if they can manage to keep the party together for long enough to accomplish what they have inhand at any given time. It will be ten years before the anti motoring legislation ,if there is any ,would come into effect and anything can happen before then.. He may be more wily than is generally admitted….. see Yes Prime Minister for instruction.

    It has been apparent for some time that the efforts of sceptics demonstrating the deception exaggeration and lies promulgated by the climate fanatics is going nowhere. Politicians in the major democracies are simply ignoring facts in favour of media interpretation and promotion of ‘public opinion’, which translates to votes in a politician’s eyes.- that’s democracy, like it or lump it.
    What we are experiencing is the start and growth of a new religion. Like all religions it is simply a belief system, counter-factual and irrational – that bestows enormous benefits on its’ promulgators, commonly called priests in the past. It is serving as a useful stalking horse and camouflage for those on the political left to further their aims of violent revolution to change society in their interests – aka Lenin 1919; rational discussion and debate is far from
    their thoughts at any time.
    Regrettably we sceptics cannot win this battle, and battle it is, simply by offering continuing exposure of the lies and deceit, no matter how accurate and well done.
    The underlying reason for this state of affairs is the doubt felt by so many ordinary people that our current economic system, based on continuous growth in all metrics, can truly continue in the long term in the same manner. This has been a continuing issue in many ordinary people’s minds since the discredited Club of Rome’s forecast of catastrophe in the ’70’s. The promises (threats) of the fanatics to return us to the 18th century falls, strangely, on welcoming ears in many areas.
    What is required is an urgent examination and discussion of ways to maintain current wealth levels in the West, whilst hopefully improving those elsewhere, in a manner which does not require growth of population and increased sales/profits for every company everywhere every year (or quarter in USA).
    Japan seems to be quietly exploring this path with a declining population and no immigration but no reported diminution of wealth. Their industry has long taken the long term view and avoided the scrabbling short-termism of the West.

    Many CEO’s of major companies are starting to recognise this in their own way by publicly accepting the climate fanatic’s position and promising new ways of doing things. Rightly or wrongly they are simply accepting the inevitable – in their eyes – and ensuring their companies and shareholders will maintain their position and survive in the new paradigm.

    I wonder when Sir Humphry will come up with taxing the use of the internet to get rid of unwanted / questioning sites and the people who access them and to raise lots of money from the poor-people. A similar, apparently “world-saving” scam to the greenhouse gas one. Money raised, the rich get richer and all problems solved.

    Speaking of “damaging the environment<" and everything else…
    Editor’s Note: Boris Johnson, who rejected fracking, now wants to take the United Kingdom right into the wind power trap just like the idiots in California.

    I had high hopes that Boris had a head on his shoulders, instead of a cabbage. Looks like I got that wrong.

      I’m surprised they haven’t already begun to place a nuke station in every village, I think that’s where they are going, nuclear is cheap in money terms even if it renders the area uninhabitable.
