The climate cult, protesting against global warming, with a petrochemical (glue), that doesn’t work because it’s too cold.
Cannot make this stuff up, anymore. 🤦♂️

The Daily Mail headlines it: ‘Eco-mob’s global warming protest fails…because it is too COLD!’ — Climate obsession can do strange things to some people. Does the phrase ‘sub-zero temperatures’ mean anything to them?
– – –
The orders were simple: Run out onto the road, glue yourself to the tarmac and stop drivers from getting through, says the Daily Mail.
But for two climate activists in Germany, that plan didn’t work out quite as they’d hoped because sub-zero temperatures stopped the glue from working properly in an embarrassing lack of foresight.
The ‘Last Generation’ activists, who were protesting against global warming, desperately poured a bucket of glue over each other before sitting stone-faced in the middle of the road in Munich this morning.
But the freezing temperature scuppered their plans and instead of being stuck to the road, the pair of protesters sat glumly…

Bravo. Nuclear fusion, *the* future of clean, cheap, abundant, unlimited energy, IMHO. It’s what powers the sun (stars). And, the main ingredient, available from the sea… H2O!
By Adam Houser ~
Nuclear fusion has been pursued by researchers for years as the key to the world’s energy future. Clean, efficient, reliable, and powerful, nuclear fusion would change the world, and undercut the debate between solar and wind and fossil fuels almost overnight.
Yet for decades researchers have failed to prove that nuclear fusion can work in the real world, despite hundreds of millions (if not more) spent by governments and foundations across the world.
Now, however, scientists may have turned a corner. According to Fox Business, US scientists working out of a California laboratory “achieved a net energy gain in a fusion reaction.”
Fox Business reports:
“Scientists have been struggling since the 1950s to harness the fusion reaction that powers the sun. But no group has been able to produce more energy from the reaction than it consumes.
“Though developing fusion power stations at scale is still…

And, how many more taxpayer-trillions need to be torched at the alter of ClimateChange™️, scarring the land with useless, industrial eco-crucifixes and mirrors, before the suicidal ‘fog of Green’ clears?
Drax power station, generating 7% of Britain’s needs, is partly converted to burning imported woodchips.
Staying warm, or even alive, takes priority over tedious climate dogma. Energy policy related to electricity generation is exposed as pitifully inadequate when the wind dies down and the days are short. The demise of cold spells in winter has been greatly exaggerated.

Emergency plans to fire up old coal plants have been triggered by National Grid as cold weather sparked fears of a supply shortage, says Energy Live News.
Two coal-fired generation units at Drax power station in Yorkshire have been instructed to be warmed up and ready for potential usage today.

Go woke, go broke.
Corporations, slowly beginning to realise that slavish adherence to ClimateChange™️ ideology will cripple their own interests, too.
It’s the irreparable damage being done to the poor and middle class–who fund it all–that is of actual concern, IMO.
How long the MainstreamMedia™️ continues their “climate crisis” fantasy/narrative is where the rubber meets the road. It is *all* in their hands, unfortunately.
Crazy world of climate finance [image credit: renewableenergyfocus.com]
Finance giants don’t like hefty fines for exaggerating their supposed climate virtues, or law suits for not acting in the best interests of their clients. Solution: leave their net-zero climate club.

Vanguard, the world’s second-largest asset manager, announced that it is resigning from a global net-zero initiative.

Shortly before COP26, last year’s United Nations climate conference in Glasgow, financial institutions were rushing to announce their climate commitments, says Grist (via Gizmodo).
The conference’s leadership and Mark Carney, a special envoy appointed by the United Nations to push private finance to invest in climate solutions, announced the creation of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero, or GFANZ.

Why don’t/won’t they call it “carbon [dioxide] literacy training”?
They don’t dare to, obviously.
CO2 is not pollution
Sounds like a bizarre make-work scheme dreamt up by climate obsessives. Will they hear about photosynthesis?

Belfast councillors are to undergo “carbon literacy training” to ensure they understand the science behind climate change, says the Belfast Telegraph.
It comes as the council is working to reduce its carbon footprint, recently announcing it will transition its vehicles that are currently powered by diesel to hydrotreated vegetable oil.
Earlier this year, the council adopted a target of reducing the city’s carbon emissions by 66% from its level in 2000 by 2025.
A Climate and Resilience Committee has also been established to help the council achieve its ambitions.

Don’t they all end with “unrealistic declarations” to allow room for themselves for the next COP, and the next, and the next…?
Why solve a ‘problem’ when the problem is the solution?
“The Conference of the Parties…Highlights that about USD 4 trillion per year needs to be invested in renewable energy up until 2030 to be able to reach net zero emissions by 2050.”
Rinse and repeat…
By Dr. Jay Lehr and Steve Goreham ~
Therefore it is really time for us all to stop taking any of the information broadcast out of the annual United Nations climate conferences called Conference Of The Parties seriously. The 27th such conference which convened in Egypt this month concluded with the following statement.
“The Conference of the Parties…Highlights that about USD 4 trillion per year needs to be invested in renewable energy up until 2030 to be able to reach net zero emissions by 2050.” That which would eliminate all life on earth that depends on carbon dioxide which is all life on earth.
This does not include reparations for loss and damage. That potentially much greater financial flow (as it is called in UN speak) is extra.
The precise nature of this called for transformation of the financial system is not specified but easy money seems…

“Global Warming” gives you a licence to lie.

The severe weather forecast Europe says we are likely to have a cold early winter. The blog authored by Renato R Colucci, makes these forecasts: (click to enlarge charts)
“Snow Extent in the Northern Hemisphere now Among the Highest in 56 years Increases the Likelihood of Cold Early Winter Forecast both in North America and Europe.”
“Snow extent in the Northern Hemisphere at the end of November represents an important parameter for the early winter forecast. This year snow extent is running much higher than average and according to existing global estimates, it is now beyond the highest ever observed so far. Winter forecast, especially in its early phase and in Europe, might be strongly influenced by such a large snow extent, although many other factors need attention.” (My emphasis on sentence,)
The posting also shows that fall snow extent is increasing lately. The following charts show the trend.
