There's some bad math in that piece. Needs editing!

Regular articles tell us that climate change hurts the vulnerable, especially trans-sex workers in Indonesia, and other various woke issues. Climate is the domain of anti-capitalist, neo-marxist media and minorities.

The truth being that climate change in the form of warming protects the vulnerable, as little as it does. Warmer temperatures benefit all life on earth. I wish I could have see what the earth was like outside of an ice-age when it could be up to 13 degrees warmer.

Conrad Black: Washing away the climate lunatics
Canada at risk of turning into Europe

I have written here and elsewhere countless times before of the dangers of responding prematurely to alarmist concerns about climate change. Dr. Benny Peiser of the British Global Warming Policy Foundation spoke to the Friends of Science Society in Calgary earlier this month, warning that Europe’s extremist net zero carbon emission policies may get to Canada even though they are now running into extreme problems in Europe. The North American media has not much reported on the widespread and often violent farmer protests in Europe, which has caused every government that has been put to the test to scale back their aggressive climate change policies.

For a long time, it was a political free lunch: everybody loves the environment, and the climate change issue was very skillfully transformed by the left into an assault on the capitalist system from a new angle in the name of saving the planet. As long as the heavy costs of displacing fossil fuels by so-called renewable energy were carefully disguised and diffused, everybody could wallow in collective self-praise for doing the healthy and environmentally responsible thing.

The burden of subsidized wind and solar farms didn’t appear on peoples’ energy bills, though eventually they were placed on the back of the taxpayer. Now, however, net zero policies are directly eating into the earnings and savings of the public and in most of Europe, the taxpayer rebellion is exploding, and the advantages of democracy are being reaffirmed as elected governments scamper to the rear, explaining that there has been a misunderstanding. When the German government tried to compel the people of that country to change their gas boilers for heat pumps at a cost of thousands of dollars per home, what critics called “boilergeddon,” it produced a so-called green-lash.

Further to the above article:

and this is what our Liberal idiot "Environment and climate change" (lol lol) minister doesn't get, nor do the Greens, nor do the NDP. You are hurting people, financially, now to the point where it's making a real difference in their lives. And you can't show anyone why you are doing it. You just want to use guilt and shame, and that doesn't work when someone is choosing between eating and heating. Reap the whirlwind.

I always read Conrad Black's NP articles. They are truthfully insightful and well written. The taxpayer rebellion hasn't exploded enough. The GreenPLibs will hopefully learn their lesson beyound votes. If GM CEO gets a pay cut for screwing up EVs, I think the NDP/Greens/Liberals also deserve a pay-cut for wrecking Canada.

Black is most likely correct in predicting the outcome of the kook’s plans
It is now clear in Europe, as it long has been in the private sector of the United States, that with whole industries and millions of jobs at stake, implementation of net zero policies in the West would make China the dominant economic and industrial power of the world. Even our most naïve and insipid global warming crusaders are unenthused by that bone-chilling prospect. Although Germany has finally acted to protect its auto industry, it is not yet doing the same for the public. It is still officially planning to ban weekend driving to meet climate targets. If the federal German government proceeds with such an insane plan, it will sink without a ripple at the next election.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

:up: :up: :up: The net zero plan governments are mandating directly upon the people is one thing, tax's. At the base of the new EV technology and its mandates are tax's, from taxing other countries cheaper offerings of it to the people, to buying off economy opportunities. Its all one thing, taxes upon the consumers. Taxes on the taxes are an absolute joke. Tax other countries EV's, then charge the consumer tax on the tax.
I was hoping these revolts were going to start this spring. Its time.

We should be making clouds. As measured by satellite, global cloud cover can change as it also does on other planets such as neptune in response to solar radiation, might it be variations in UV or other bands. Neptune's clouds wax and wane by solar radiation as well. As the theory goes, fewer clouds, more warmth.

Londoners coming together to protest "ULEZ" - ultra low emissions zones - in London. Good to see people standing up to the man-made climate change Klimate Kook thugs. This crap is coming here to Canada, especially if that idiot Guilbeault is still in charge of fairy tales.
Anti-Ulez protests reignite debate over London’s car pollution clampdown
Noisy movement highlights how scheme has become a key battleground for Tories and Labour ahead of the local elections

Kingsley Hamilton drove his vintage double decker “stop the Ulez” bus in circles around Yorkshire Grey roundabout in south-east London last Saturday as part of a protest against the capital’s vehicle emissions charge.

“You’ll know me from being arrested for taking down Ulez cameras,” Hamilton said, referring to a case last year where he was charged with breaking a traffic camera.

He had been stopped by police in the middle of the night while carrying gloves, tools and anti-Ulez stickers not far from a disabled camera. The charges were later dropped.

The incident has not dimmed his verve for protest. “The argument that [Ulez] is keeping the dirty air out of London is nonsense,” Hamilton said, referring to the recent expansion of the ultra-low emission zone scheme, which levies a fee on vehicles that do not meet environmental standards.

yup - this is more trash from the alarmist idiots at "Climate Central". I like how they somehow get called "scientists" even though they just make stuff up and of course, the media gloms on to it and prints it, no matter how insane and stupid the crap they are spewing is. What else is new.
NASA’s climate change websites may be the biggest cache of alarmism in the Federal system, but the massive website called Climate Central may be the biggest in the world and it certainly is the flashiest. They claim to do research and reporting, but what they call science and news is actually just speculation and advocacy. (NASA is one of their sponsors.) While not billed as an education site, the content is all non-technical, so it is probably widely used to teach alarmism.

Climate Central’s motto is “Researching and reporting the science and impacts of climate change” but it is mostly just model-driven nonsense. Here are some of the top junk stories, as of this writing:
https://www.cfact.org/2017/08/07/climat ... pure-hype/

Of course, if you call out this total bag of turds for their alarmist garbage, you'll get the usual crowd of Klimate Kooks calling you a "denier". You must believe in the "Klimate Krisis" at all costs.

This year, we’re seeing some warming coming,” he said. “What the potential impacts are depends on how the weather plays out.
So...it's May, yup, and its getting warmer, yup. Now just wait and see what weather you can try to blame on climate change?

These people sound more idiotic by the minute.

I'm thinking this has to be James Lindsay style takedown! Some skeptic has gotten inside the machine and is putting out the most ridiculous stuff possible to make alarmists look sooooo stupid!

Like so any of the climate change believers on Castanet actually believe this article has any credibility?
