Global computer usage has more ’emissions’ than aviation industry, say researchers

Will Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter et al., be renouncing their carbon (CO2) ‘sins’ at UN COP26 in Glasgow?

Nahh, didn’t think so.

And so, the hypocrisy train rolls on. Choo-choo!

Climate obsessives drone on about such things endlessly, and pointlessly. Attacking all aspects of modern technological life on the basis of an irrational fear of trace gases leads nowhere good. Time for a complete re-think.

Global computer usage produces twice the greenhouse gases as the aviation industry, new analysis suggests.

Figures from Lancaster University reveal emissions from computing account for almost four per cent of all greenhouse gases spewed into the atmosphere, compared to two per cent for air travel, says the Telegraph.

Previous studies had claimed that computing’s share of global emissions was between 1.8 and 2.8 per cent, however the researchers of the new paper say this was an underestimate.

Health Dept. Launches New “Office Of Climate Change And Health Equity”

Smart move!

After all, Covid-19 has an eventual ‘used-by’ date.

Big government statists well aware that they can’t use a virus, forever, to limit your selfish ‘excesses’ in their authoritarian quest to “Build Back Better”.

The unlimited timeline of “climate change” — a far more appropriate ‘crisis’ to control you while remaking civilisation in their own image.

Top work, our dear ‘planet saviours’! (Sigh)

In times of open deceit and authoritarian behaviour, the prophetic words of the wiser may provide a semblance of solace through understanding …

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely
exercised for the good of its victims
may be the most oppressive.”

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched a new Office of Climate Change & Health Equity.

The staff will report to the White House’s task force on climate change and focus on how climate change risks the health of Americans, particularly the poor and minorities.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal:

“The new office is likely to spur initiatives touching on many aspects of healthcare, HHS officials announced Monday. It is expected to offer protections for populations most at risk—including the elderly, minorities, rural communities and children, and the office could eventually compel hospitals and other care facilities to reduce carbon emissions.

“Asked how HHS would reduce carbon emissions from healthcare facilities, Mr. Becerra said: ‘We will use every authority to its greatest advantage because it is time to tackle climate change now.’

“Officials said one of the first tasks…

UK Govt under fire as nuclear industry claim they have been banned from COP26

More living proof that the “save the planet” agenda has absolutely nothing to do with odourless, invisible, trace gas CO2.

Tallbloke's Talkshop

COP26_2021Opponents of nuclear power, of which the most obvious would be rival industries like wind and solar power, must have a strong influence within the UK government if there really is a ‘no nuclear’ policy for the forthcoming climate show. Are they serious about trying to change the weather via energy policy, or not?

Up to 15 applications from nuclear-related bodies are understood to have been rejected by Mr Sharma’s COP26 Unit in the Cabinet Office, says The GWPF.

Alok Sharma has come under fire for preventing a series of nuclear bodies from displaying exhibits at the COP26 climate change summit.

In an open letter to Boris Johnson’s minister in charge of the event, global nuclear industry leaders revealed that “every application” so far to put on nuclear-related exhibits or events at the UN summit had been rejected.

The move comes despite senior Tories insisting that…

UK Relying On Europe For A Fifth Of Its Power

UK theoretical ‘windmill’ capacity = 24GW, but is running at less than 2GW.

Windmills are your enemy, not the fossil fuel tech that happens to create and sustain, symbolic UNreliables.

The real enemy of ‘sustainability’, is symbolism itself.

We’re currently relying on Europe for 16% of our electricity, as wind power plummets once again. Last night the proportion reached 20% as solar power disappeared.

Our thousands of wind turbines have a theoretical capacity of 24 GW, but are running at less than 2GW. Yet we plan to double that capacity in the next few years.

Are there any grown ups in charge of our energy policy?

What If It’s Global Cooling, Not Warming?

“Sorting the wheat from the chaff is quite literally a full time role, and one thing that gets honed like a sword on an anvil is the skeptical critical thinking part of our brain.

Trust but verify is so very important. And what I do know is that the entire global warming narrative, together with ‘the science is settled’, is complete utter nonsense. It has been extraordinarily successful, too.”

More, rational food for thought.

Wouldn’t it be ironic that instead of the planet-warming over the next 30 years, it actually went into a cooling phase?

When we first heard of sunspot activity and forecasting climate based on the level of solar spot activity we thought this was pixyland stuff.

However, when we “opened our minds” and started to dig deeper we realized there was something going on here. Make your own minds up. We aren’t trying to change anyone’s view but rather encourage you to open your perspectives.

UN IPCC : ‘Code Red For Humanity’

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth
Fmr President of the UN Foundation

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a
false-front for the urge to rule it.”

– H.L. Mencken

No, it is not “code-red for humanity”.

Ergo, ‘DON’T PANIC’!

There’s no need to if you choose to follow known data, and not alarmist UN climate models that drive manufactured global-warming-hysteria.

In fact, the opposite of ‘hysteria’ is true if one is willing to acknowledge that thanks to technology (fossil fuels) and human ingenuity, we are ~99% less likely, now, to die from a climate related event than we were ~100 years ago.

Via Bjorn Lomborg:

Furthermore, shouldn’t we at least ‘scientifically’ assess climate conditions of the recent past in order to objectively analyse present conditions in order to avoid; unhinged, costly, desperate and political ‘solutions’ to a perceived problem that simply does-not-even-exist in the first place based on known data?

A recent post by Tony Heller, in response to the UN’s latest climate ‘assessment’, highlights the wise adage of letting “cooler heads prevail”, or at the very least, allowing past historical events a time-and-a-place for comparative analysis in order to help manage ‘public hysteria’ that appears to be based, purely, on the conclusions of a highly politicised UN body and compliant mainstream media.

Code Red For Humanity

The UN says “code red for humanity”

According to the National Climate Assessment, heatwaves have plummeted over the past century.

US heatwaves were far worse during the ‘dust-bowl’ era of the 1930’s.

Like medical science, climate science has been completely corrupted.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as editor of The New England Journal of Medicine” (1).

More recently, Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, wrote that “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness” (2).

Skeptical of medical science reports?

Time to assume that health research is fraudulent until proven otherwise? – The BMJ

President Eisenhower sounded the alarm 60 years ago.

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

Could Pacific Northwest heatwave, European floods have been caused by the Sun?

Jet-stream blocking, as a result of weakening of the sun’s output, appears plausible, and certainly consistent with the current-and-rapid (~2 year) cooling cycle of the global atmosphere, despite record and rising CO₂ ’emissions’.
https://www.drroyspencer.com/latest-global-temperatures/

Just don’t mention “the sun” – one might just as easily be cancelled, or labelled a “climate denier” … all under the guise of ‘science’ and scientific discovery, of course.

Of course they could have been. The question is, were they? Assigning weather events to ‘global warming’ is ambiguous without a full definition of what the assigner means by that term. Jet stream blocking events discussed below are well-known to meteorologists, and constantly claiming them as evidence of a new human-caused problem with the climate is a stretch, to say the least.
– – –
The recent record-shattering heat wave in the Pacific northwest and devastating floods in western Europe have both been ascribed to global warming by many climate scientists, says Science Under Attack.

But an alternative explanation, voiced by some climatologists yet ignored by the mainstream media, is that the disasters were caused by the phenomenon of jet-stream blocking – which may or may not be a result of global warming, and could instead arise from a weakening of the sun’s output.

Climate Change : An Excuse For Political Incompetence

“Without any evidence, when flooding occurs today, climate alarmists point their collective fingers at the trivial emissions of anthropogenic carbon dioxide.

The German spa town of Bad Schandau is sited in a valley on the banks of the river Elbe. Not surprisingly, the town has been flooded many times, as the town’s collection of flood markers show…”

IF the corrupt mainstream media dared educate and expose their audience to historical weather-related ‘disasters’, as scientifically laid out in this elegant post by Dr John Happs, the legitimacy of their “climate crisis” and “climate emergency” proclamations, along with their ongoing politically-motivated ‘climate change’ agenda would be severely compromised, if not terminated in totality.

For this precise reason, the elite-media-cabal wilfully continue their anti-human, anti-science endeavour of bias-by-omission… If it never happened in the past, then current (media-hyped) weather ‘extremes’ must be “unprecedented”, caused, obviously, by the sins and excesses of ‘evil’ mankind.

Good read.

By Dr. John Happs ~

People have always been drawn to the coast and rivers because of their scenic locations. In earlier times there were clear advantages from riverside and coastal living since they provided easier trade and communication with other parts of the country and overseas. Around the world, building on the fertile soils of riverside floodplains has been widespread and still continues even though we know that floodplains are plains that will always flood.

Queensland Floods 1974

Climate change received little or no mention by the media or politicians during the inundation of Queensland floodplains in 1974:

After this event, houses were rebuilt only to suffer later flooding. There were floodplain inundations in Queensland during 2011, 2012, 2013, 2018, 2019 and 2020. The more recent floods were met, not with expressions of regret for allowing building to continue in these areas, but with the anticipated cries of “global…
