Greta Thunberg deleted a post predicting the end of the world in 5 years, from back in 2018. The prediction is from a 'top scientist'. LOL. Even Greta can't be honest. I hate to tell you Greta, but it was the activists who stole your childhood.

If I read that right, the 'top scientist' said if we haven't stopped using fossil fuels in 5 years the world would end. That's good news though. We can use all the fossil fuels we want now because it's too late to do anything about it.

Scientists should stick to science and quit pretending to be fortune tellers.

Like telling a doctor to just tell you there is a black dot on the x-ray and not wanting to get an actual diagnosis of what it is and what could happen in your future? I mean, since we don't want to know the future those meteorologists should find a new line of work, it's not like they are "scientists" right?

Actual diagnosis is a good thing.
Speculation and guessing, not so much.

especially when it costs mankind trillions of dollars, all in the name of fighting something that doesn't even exist.

But you know they are getting them younger and younger into this stupid cult. Case in point:
Young environmental advocates from the O.V. Jewitt School also lent their voices to the cause.

“This is important to because we’ve been causing lots of garbage and we should do something about it,” said Preet Preet, grade 5 student at O.V. Jewitt School. “And most and most of the pollution comes from garbage and factories. And we should do something because some day the planet will die and we can maybe save it from not dying.”
Why are they polluting these young children with this garbage? "The planet will die" - come on, why are they stressing these young kids out like this?? For what? This is why it's just so obvious that these "climate alarmists" aren't just lunatics, they are truly evil people, bent on subjugating and then destroying everyone on this planet.

In this case a TOP DOCTOR tells you, you have 5 years to live. You arrange your life accordingly, make plans, quit your job, spend money, say goodbyes. After 5 years, you discover there really was no black dot and the doctor was incompetent.

Obviously the TOP SCIENTIST should find another profession. In this case "James Anderson" at Harvard is an environmental jutnob.

Another climate debate - WON by Koonin.
Appears as though the support for large and rapid reductions in emissions is not rational, and is not what most people want.

Yet, another climate debate won by Koonin-on-tour, against Andrew Dressler. Videos are in both links.

Of course most people don't want large and rapid reductions, because there is no need for it. So that's why the CBC and other horrible media outlets only publish "worst case scenarios" in their media reporting, to try and scare people. Frightened people will do just about anything you ask them to. People who are not scared just won't care. So it's all about the stupid alarmist fear mongering. And then when you say "You are crazy" to these fear-mongering lunatics, you get "how dare you!!!" as a response. Such nuttery.

That’s right! Light bulbs, modems, routers, computers, anything with a digital clock, anything charging, not to mention laundry, electric hot water tanks and heating. Unplug it all until the world is saved. (Until further notice)

First the Finns dump their far Left leader, and now they have their nuclear power plant coming online to save Europe from extinction. Way to go Finland! I knew they had more potential than just producing Jari Kurri and Teemu Selanne!

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/compani ... e0e2&ei=24
HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland's much-delayed Olkiluoto 3 (OL3) nuclear reactor, Europe's largest, will begin regular output on Sunday, its operator said on Saturday, boosting energy security in a region to which Russia has cut gas and power supplies.

Nuclear power remains controversial in Europe, primarily due to safety concerns, and news of OL3's start-up comes as Germany on Saturday switches off its last three remaining reactors, while Sweden, France, Britain and others plan new developments.

OL3's operator Teollisuuden Voima (TVO), which is owned by Finnish utility Fortum and a consortium of energy and industrial companies, has said the unit is expected to meet around 14% of Finland's electricity demand, reducing the need for imports from Sweden and Norway.

Forget about meat, the production of rice is responsible for 10% of emissions in the form of methane. (If one cares about emissions)


https://www.climatedepot.com/2023/04/18 ... e-ignored/

Marc Morano wrote: The big picture is this: This isn’t necessarily about shutting down rice production. This is about the climate agenda coming from the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, academia,the corporate world, identifying every facet of modern society as being a climate ‘problem’ that needs managing and thus a takeover. So whether we’re talking about transportation, whether it’s airlines, whether it’s gas-powered cars, whether it’s eating meat, whether it’s high-yield agriculture, it’s all allegedly creating a ‘climate emergency’ and thus global elites want to take over and ‘manage’ them. They are looking for a managerial revolution. They want to put themselves in charge of saving the planet and thus put themselves in charge of all aspects of modern society.

My significant other sure cares about my emissions when I eat rice! :biggrin:
Sadly my Wife recently passed away so I purchased a bottle of 20 year old scotch and poured it on her grave.

I did filter it through my Kidneys first.
