Ponder this

Those that despise people will never get the best out of others and themselves.

Climate Foibles

Stuff the NY Times and the Eco-nazis won’t tell you. MSNBC and CNN has no desire to publish anything of this sort. Rest assured WE shall.

October Arctic surprise: Rapid recovery of ice extent

  1. October Arctic Surprise: Rapid Recovery Of Ice Extent
    Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 7 October 2017 In recent years, October has seen some rapid recoveries of Arctic ice extents.  But this year may become something special.
    With the early onset of Siberian snow cover and the resulting surface cooling, ice is roaring back, especially on the Asian side. Consider the refreezing during the last 11 days through yesterday.
  2. Tony Abbott, Green Attacks And Ridley’s Paradox
    Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism, 10 October 2017 Tony Abbott, former PM of Australia, gave the annual GWPF lecture on Monday night. Predictably, the talk has been attacked, thereby giving it lots of publicity, and equally predictably, there is no substance to the attacks.
  3. Green Activists Face Up To 21 Years In Prison As Judge Rejects Climate Change Excuse
    The New York Times, 10 October 2017 A lawyer for an environmental activist convicted of targeting an oil pipeline in North Dakota said he doesn’t think a judge’s decision disallowing the threat of global warming as a defense to justify the crime would be grounds for an appeal.
  4. Germany’s Green Caste System Contributed To Merkel’s Electoral Losses
    Daily Caller, 9 October 2017  The country’s hefty solar subsides have created a have and have-not type caste system in Germany, the report notes. Germany’s poorest citizens began joining ranks with Merkel’s chief political opponent after subsides caused electricity bills to skyrocket.
  5. Germany Set To Widely Miss Climate Targets, Environment Ministry Warns
    Clean Energy Wire, 11 October 2017 Germany’s environment ministry fears high emissions from coal-fired power plants and transport will make the country miss its 2020 climate targets by a wider margin than previously anticipated. The ministry’s warning adds further pressure to make fast progress on climate-related issues in upcoming talks aimed at forming a new government following September’s general elections.
  6. Obama’s Clean Power Plan Is Finally Getting The Axe. But Climate Skeptics Want More
    E&E News, 11 October 2017  The Trump administration today will officially announce the end of the Clean Power Plan, a regulation limiting planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But the conservative crowd that’s skeptical about climate change says its work is just beginning.
  7. CEI Analysis: EPA Proposes Clean Power Plan Repeal Rule
    Competitive Enterprise Institute, 9 October 2017 On Tuesday, October 10, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is expected to release the agency’s proposed rule to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CCP). The CPP, which aims to reduce U.S. electric power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, was the Obama administration’s marquee domestic climate policy and principal regulatory component of the U.S. emission-reduction pledge under the Paris Climate Accord. On Friday, October 6, someone leaked the repeal rule a few days before its official debut. In this post, I provide excerpts and offer commentary on the leaked document.

Iniquitous Individuals

Some creative individual has an opportunity to make a full length animated feature that should be a winner. Call it, “Hollywood: Despicable You!” Let it feature all the effete twits who pompously talked down to America about our right wing morals, our uncaring insensitive ways and anti-women beliefs. To them we are racist, rapist, gun toting wife beating caitiffs. That’s just on Mondays.

Now the overcoat has parted and their Godhead Harvey Weinstein is thrust onto stage center pantless. Weinstein wishes to play the victim now that he’s exposed.

Of more interest is the deafening silence from Hollywood and the tangle-footed scramble by the Jackasses to give back the semen coated dollars they eagerly sought during campaigning. Of course no one knew anything a forehand. Well this circlejerk is so loathsome, it will taint most of the amoral prigs in Hollywood.

Weinstein sexual harassment controversy exposes Hollywood’s double standard

When the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape leaked one year ago, capturing then-candidate, now-President Trump bragging in coarse terms in 2005 about being allowed to grab women because he was a celebrity, Hollywood had a meltdown.

Cher called Trump a “scumbag carny barker” on Twitter. Comedian Patton Oswalt labeled him a “sexist creep.” Actress Emmy Rossum wrote: “misogynistic entitled pig.”

This week, amid revelations that Oscar-winning movie and television producer Harvey Weinstein had a long history of sexually harassing women, Hollywood’s response was largely muted. Film studios on Friday all declined to comment. [snip]

The sordid allegations against Weinstein put Hollywood and Democrats in an awkward spot.

Over the years, Weinstein has given generously to Democrats and liberal causes, contributing more than $600,000 to Democratic politicians and groups, according to federal records. He donated tens of thousands of dollars to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Obama’s oldest daughter, Malia, worked as an intern for Weinstein Co. in New York last summer prior to enrolling at Harvard University. Weinstein also has contributed to the Clinton Foundation, whose website states that the producer provided well over $100,000 as of June.

Ah! Those so sensitive toward women’s issues, the Jackass Party, the Clintons, Obama, Liberal politicians across the land and of course the enablers in Hollywood who in complicity kept their mouths shut, allowed many less than powerful women be abused, coerced and threatened because they had a job and wanted to keep it.
The next question is from where did the money come and who handled the payoffs.

Illegal Immigration

California pols and the media won’t admit it but the Hep A didn’t spring up like Venus on the half shell. Nor didn’t is come about just in the homeless shelters and on the streets.
Unfettered immigration with no health checks will allow all sorts of communicable diseases to enter the Country; given the penchant of the Gen-X and Y not to immunize their kids, that has the potential for a disease holocaust rivaling the Spanish Flu of 1918.

California Hepatitis A Outbreak on Verge of Statewide Epidemic

The California hepatitis A outbreak is on the verge of reaching statewide epidemic status, as cases have spread through homeless tent cities from San Diego north to Sacramento.

California health officials have reported that at least 569 people have been infected with the hepatitis A liver disease and 17 have died since a San Diego County outbreak was first identified in November. Cases have migrated north to homeless populations in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Sacramento over the last 11 months.

Although local and state authorities have tried to underplay the risks and severity of the outbreak, the most recent annual totals for cases of hepatitis A in the United States was 1,390 in 2015, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). California only reported 179 cases during the same year.

Another explanation may be the city’s decision to ban plastic bags, which deprived homeless people of an alternative means of disposing of human waste when bathrooms were not available.

The last major hepatitis A outbreak was 900 cases and 8 deaths in Pennsylvania in 2003. The infected suffer flulike symptoms and jaundice, but the disease can progress to death. Since 1998, national hepatitis A incidence rates had been “progressively lower each year” due to the development of a “safe and effective hepatitis A vaccines in 1995–1996.” [snip]

The City of San Diego was forced to sign the Spencer Settlement in 2006, which forbids its Police Department from enforcing the city’s “Illegal Lodging Enforcement Guidelines” between the hours of 9 pm to 5:30 am.

California, with 115,738 homeless, now accounts for about 21 percent of America’s total homeless population. Due to legal settlements against vagrancy laws, about 72.3 percent of California’s homeless are unsheltered, usually living in tent cities.

California public health officials are desperately scrambling to offer vaccine injections to the homeless, but many in the population are under legal warrants and do everything possible to avoid being identified. [snip]

In the entire piece published never was there a mention of an illegal immigrant anywhere in the text. Are the powers that be telling us that all illegals are immune to these diseases? Must be!

Moms against everything

The rounds had barely stopped ricocheting before the Left set their hair on fire and began yowling for gun control. The following is illuminating.
