It was never really about climate or the weather, was it. ‘The Environment’ merely the emotional ruse necessary to guilt you into unquestioning obedience, compliance, faith, and belief.
By Clay Waters ~
New York Times climate reporter Cara Buckley issued a weirdly casual “news” profile of the “gentle” leader of a radical anti-humanity movement called Voluntary Human Extinction, datelined (naturally) Portland, Oregon, under the admirably honest headline: “Earth Now Has 8 Billion Humans. This Man Wishes There Were None.” So enthusiastic was Buckley that this sentence was included in her online byline: “Buckley interviewed Mr. [Les] Knight in Portland and was surprised to find him curiously uplifting.”
The praise for the humanity-loathing human began at the start. Not even Tucker Carlson could hamper Knight’s good vibes.
For someone who wants his own species to go extinct, Les Knight is a remarkably happy-go-lucky human.
He has regularly hosted meteor shower parties with rooftop fireworks. He organized a long-running game of nude croquet in his backyard, which, it should be mentioned, is ringed by 20-foot-tall laurel hedges. Even Tucker…

Estimated “loss and damages” from human caused climate chaos:
India $6.6 trillion a year
Brazil $5.1 trillion a year
Mexico $2.9 trillion a year
Indonesia $2.5 trillion a year
Argentina $1.6 trillion a year
Iran $1.1 trillion a year
Perhaps the more logical question would be, how much “loss and damage” would have been incurred without fossil fuel proliferation throughout the western and developing worlds?
By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~
This preposterous claim shows the dangerous absurdity of the “loss and damage” doctrine. At this rate of damage the global total would run around TWO HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. There is not that much money in the whole world.
The $800 billion a year is from a report presented by Colombia at COP27. The mainstream green press either did not notice or decided to ignore it, lest it raise issues best left alone until the proposed UN Loss and Damage Facility is created.
Look at it this way. Colombia is a relatively small country with a GDP of around $300 billion a year, about the 40th largest in the world and just 0.4% of the global total. Its “loss and damage” claim is roughly 2.5 times its GDP, so let’s assume that ratio globally.
World GDP is about $81 trillion, which multiplied by 2.5…

“… if wind and solar energy is so cheap, why do they need any incentives?”
They lose, you pay. Welcome to ‘green’ central planning!
Bloomberg posted “Renewable power’s big mistake was to promise to always get cheaper” because they went too far with the cheap-energy pledge. Vesta now says that led some people to think “that energy and electricity should become free.”
Renewable-energy producers have long touted the promise of cheap electricity, an assurance that’s helped them eat into the dominance of fossil fuels. But the pledge has gone too far, according to the world’s biggest wind-turbine maker.
From the Bloomberg’s posting:
“Soaring commodity costs and supply-chain bottlenecks have wiped out profits for much of the wind industry this year. Vestas expects itsprofit marginto be around -5% in 2022”.
“The output from the turbine has never been more valuable,” Andersen said. “But we are losing money in manufacturing a turbine.” Vestas has raised prices more than 30% in the past year to help stem losses.”

“The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself.“

“It’s safe to say we’ve seen it all now.”
This is how WeatherZone.com–unlikely sceptics of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) religion–opened their article reporting on extremely rare, if not unheard of, avalanches in Victoria in November.
Their overt surprise not out of context.
Climate models from the 1970s have consistently predicted that CO2-induced
global warming climate change should be causing a significant decline in total snow cover. However, global snow cover has actually increased since at least the start of the record (Connolly et al., 2019), leading to some scepticism within the scientific community about the validity of UN IPCC climate models that directly drive costly global warming climate change catastrophism.
Perhaps that same healthy scepticism may well increase, amongst academics and mainstream media institutions, thanks to
global warming climate change narrative-contradictions like ‘Avalanches in Victoria in November!’
Though, don’t hold your breath. The ClimateChange™️ eco-scare is strong and will not die quickly. Too many jobs, reputations, taxpayer trillions, and egos are now at stake.
Oh, just a November Aussie avalanche
ANTHONY SHARWOOD, 03 NOV 2022, 10:38 AM AEDT
It’s safe to say we’ve seen it all now.
We’ve seen snow fall in late spring and even in summer on the Australian mainland. We’ve also seen Aussie winter snow so heavy that it caused avalanches – a hazard more commonly associated with much more mountainous countries, but which does happen here. There have even been fatalities over the years.
But we’ve never seen an out-of-season snowfall with heavy enough accumulation to cause a significant snow slide. Until now.
Snowy Mountains local Steve Smith (not a great cricketer but definitely a better skier than his famous namesake) got up early on Wednesday morning to take advantage of the unseasonable snowfalls, which you can read about here and here.
No ski lifts are open at this time of year, so he drove up towards the Charlotte Pass ski resort, where he hiked up the slopes of Mt Guthrie to earn a few turns on about 30 to 40 cm of fresh November snow.

That’s when trouble struck. As he started skiing down, the snowpack broke away from itself and started sliding in large chunks, triggered by his skis. Look carefully and you can see his tracks to the right of the slide in the image above.
Below is a shot of the same slide from a different angle.

Frighteningly, Steve was caught in the slide but as he told Weatherzone, “I just relaxed and rode it out for a few seconds. No big deal. Pretty gentle terrain in there.”
For the record, Steve is an experienced back country skier who has had avalanche training. He skis with a full safety kit, and so should you if you ever venture out to the back country in any season.
But it was still a lucky escape, as avalanches can bury you even on gentle terrain like the terrain in the images above.
“Take care out there,” Steve warned his fellow back country adventurers who will doubtlessly be heading out in flocks in coming days before this November snow melts.
“Out on the higher alpine terrain, I reckon the avalanche risk is real for a few days till it settles down.”
Image: Same avvy, from a slightly different angle. Source: Steve Smith.
If you do happen to be heading to the high country of Victoria and NSW this weekend for any reason, the forecast is for cool, partly cloudy weather with the chance of a light shower or two (of rain, not snow), especially on Sunday.

The ultimate irony of ironies?
After spending upwards of half a trillion euros of taxpayers money on useless UNreliables (windmills and mirrors), ‘green’ Germany is now resorting to bulldozing an Energiewende wind ‘farm’ in order to expand a ‘dirty’ brown (lignite) coal mine to keep the lights on.
What a hot mess this ‘green’ ideology has now become.
The literal cracks visible for all to see…
German energy company RWE has begun dismantling a small wind farm to make way for the expansion of an adjacent lignite coal mine, a move the company willingly acknowledges as “paradoxical”.
RWE has already dismantled one of the wind turbines at the Keyenberg wind park in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The remaining seven turbines are expected to be dismantled throughout next year, as RWE expands its operations at its Garzweiler coal mine.
“We realize this comes across as paradoxical,” RWE spokesperson Guido Steffen said in a statement. “But that is as matters stand.”
The driving factor behind the decision is the fear of energy shortages driven by the Russia invasion of Ukraine, and the lack of imported fossil gas from Russia.
RWE decided in late-September to reactivate three coal-fired power plants that were previously on standby. The three plants, each with a capacity of 300MW, would resume operations “to strengthening the security of supply in Germany during the energy crisis and to saving natural gas in electricity generation.”

New research confirming ‘green’ ideology, not climate change, makes bushfires worse.
via Phys.org (Climatism bolds)
Southeast Australia’s bushfire crisis culminated in the devastating bushfire season of 2019 and 2020 that burnt nearly 25 million hectares of bush.
Our new research demonstrates how the scale of this disaster blew out due to legislation introduced in the 1970s, which was based on idea that nature should be left to grow freely without human intervention.
We investigated the bushfire history of one of the worst hit areas: Buchan on Gunaikurnai Country in Victoria.
We found no bushfires burned there for almost a century until the mid 1970s, following the establishment of the Land Conservation Act of 1970—legislation that sought to protect the Australian bush from humans.
This legislation banned farmers from mimicking Aboriginal burning practices by using frequent fires to promote grass for livestock. As a result, the amount of flammable trees and shrubs exploded in the region.
It was only after this prohibition on burning that catastrophic bushfires became an issue in the Buchan area.
The prolonged neglect of southeast Australian forests under the guise of conservation means our forests now carry dangerous levels of fuels.

The study :
They call anyone who dares question climate change dogma a “climate denier”, yet the litany of alarmist, dud-predictions by ‘climate experts’ go completely unaccounted for.
Being a member of the Global Warming cult is a license to lie.
Oh yes, this prediction was made in 1995. East Coast beaches are still there. How can it be that learned alarmist scientists could be wrong?
Alarmist have made a vast number of predictions of doom over the years. None of which have lived up to its billing. This just one of them and they are still making them.
