My thought is that eventually those con-job (confidence trick) eyesore turbines will prove to be mega-mistakes.
The theory seems plausible enough—ships used natural wind power for millennia (most today use oil) (some even use atoms) …
But I think wind-turbines should be funded only by voluntary pubic subscription—
… Little Virginia, how nice …
“Yes, Pest? … Pet?”
“Sir—what you’ve just written? Is that a typo?
“No, Sweet Child. Think about it for a moment. Stet.”
—with no exceptions.
If you’re a bird lover, or perhaps into the defining moment—
—you can cut to the chase by cutting ahead to 1:35. (The fox, no fool, would vote for more wind farms …)
only by voluntary subscription!
Let’s see where we’d go from there (not far, I guess …)
I had a brief flurry on the topic of
—and am now throwing down a gauntlet for all comers. I’ll open with this simple range-finder—
“TIME DOESN’T EXIST”
—which I can cheerily expand*. Savage it if you can. (Sure, time exists—what else do we measure with all those clocks, hmmm?). Anyway it’s blatantly and absurdly obvious: movement is change of position (obviously with respect to time) and everything in the universe is moving …
AND NOW (ouch)
I’ll leave you with this challenge (which you won’t have time enough to accept) (so make some time) and
in Fitzgerald’s translations of Khayyam’s ‘Rubaiyat‘. The original Khayyam is a bit different from Fitzgerald’s, so I gather that the work we love is mostly Fitz’s (he was too modest).
As for Time not existing—there are schools that hold Time to be simply an eternal ‘now’. Cute. Others think that there’s no such thing as a ‘now’ … the moment you find a now it’s promptly a ‘was’ and the next ‘might be’ becomes an is.
Enough for now*, more soon.
* Notice all the ‘temporal’ references? ‘Open‘, ‘brief‘, ‘soon‘, and ‘now‘ … and I’ve only just started* (ouch). Everything is time based. (Get used to it: no time = no nuthin’.)
FOR MISS GRETA
AND ALL WHO
sail her—so dry those tears, we have it in hand …
JUST WRAP YOUR MIND
around this one if you seek solace:
Hot or cold? It’s so hard to keep up with shifting targets. Anyway, this is given us by real Scientists (and they should know—they’re experts.)
I’m off now to flash up the barbecue and savage some sausages while trying desperately not to dread climate changes. (Dammit, I confuse easily—am I still to paint my roof white, or should it now be black?)
AND HER ALARMIST POWER BASE
this simple question:
What colour is your roof?
Because … if it isn’t polished silver, or at least white—
—you are insincere. Actually, you would be a BS merchant out to profit from other peoples’ good faith, or their gullibility, or both … and quite two-faced.
So, Alarmists … don’t tell me, show me.
Lead by example—or quit your blasted squawking; shut up and sit down, crawl back under your rock and wait until some other sucker comes along.
when you can tell me how to save the planet from the ‘unprecedented’ swings in temperatures, in a manner that doesn’t involve killing off millions of innocents … I shall be all ears. (Mind you, a good brisk all-out nuclear war would indeed drop the temperatures a bit—once that ‘nuclear winter’ thing kicks in.)
how the religious feel
when their beliefs are being denigrated …
I refer to the parallels between Global Warming Alarmism versus the (misnamed) Climate Change Denial*; many of whose practitioners are vociferously anti-The One True Faith.
The above is simply a way of saying that both sides have fervent believers very set in their ways. Both teams also have
God (oops) Science on their side, and both can spout endless texts, relics, and accredited Prophets to prove their case.
the damned denialists are low key compared to the Alarmists. Just like religion we mere mortals are threatened with annihilation and eternal damnation if we don’t recant and cross over—before it is too late. Actually, according to some prophets it’s already several hours past midnight.
The one thing the Alarmists won’t do is step back and actually practise what they preach. Just as with Abrahamic religions, it’s a case of
“Do as I say! Not as I do!”
if we don’t promptly turn over the means of production and distribution to their absolute control:
- You’re a BLOODY DENIER, and
- given half a chance
- they’ll send in the heavies.
Be warned: in times to come it could get a little rough (religious wars are the worst kind).
BUT FOR NOW
all is still sweetness and light, and will stay that way until the cuts start biting. Here, have thee a nice agnostic—
—some of her imagery is well worth a peep—
—make of it what you will.
Now have yourself a wee Alarmist prophet—
—who kept ‘wagging’ school to lecture Grown Ups about why we (sinners) are all murderous pigs.
FOR OBVIOUS REASONS REFUSES
She is indeed a busy person. I enjoy her writings, more concise than mine—even though we are sometimes polar opposites:
- She’s a Christian.
- I’m an unclassifiable (nearest label, ‘atheist’).
But at times we’re on parallel tracks. Like this below—
“…They are not a new phenomenon, the Chloe Swarbricks and so many others convinced their youth gives them superior insights, advantages, thinking and experience denied previous generations – in spite of the fact that so many other cultures, equating age with accumulated learning and wisdom, accord considerable respect to their own elderly. Worldwide today, Green parties, predominantly representing a youth vote, are embracing a kind of eco-fanaticism which has them panicking about ‘the planet’. Their claim that we have a ‘climate emergency’ is used as justification …”
Spot on (rubric mine). Anyway, it’s from: CLICK HERE (be advised, she’s a devoted devout devotee of Big JC—so discussion is out. A pity, she often otherwise makes sense …)
“Yes, Mr God, Sir?”
“She may be wrong about Me, Dog … but she’s spot on about that Anthropogenic Global Warming nonsense!”
“But your Dad saw it all billions of years ago, Sir—?”
“He set it all up, Dog! Don’t forget that, it’s important.”
“Aye aye, Sir.”
Given, that the only
then if we are to believe hysterical little girls our planet is doomed to its upcoming Heat Extinction. The logic is unassailable:
- Carbon dioxide is a Greenhouse gas
- that will cause the planet to heat up
- beyond a Doomsday tipping point—
—and WE are pumping out all the carbon dioxide we can produce.
Unless we can somehow suck some of it back in? Or at least stop producing the damned stuff—by law, at gunpoint if we have to … and we damned well HAVE TO (haven’t you been paying attention? Sheesh!)
What hope through yonder window peeks?
—’tis the sun, and Sol be his holy name. Now look closely at the pic … do you see any spots? Nary a one, no?
Which at this stage of the game is apparently a wonderful thing—when this happened a few centuries ago the world entered a chilly patch, peasants all over the place died not from the heat but from the terrible cold.
Now ponder this WOTIFF:
WOTIFF our spotless cold cancels out the Global Warming?
If you can’t figure it then consider statistics: imagine a statistician with his head in the oven and feet in the fridge—on average he’s comfortable.
If uncomfortable yourself go look at the historical records of global temperatures (and all possible meanings of the word “unprecedented”).
If still unhappy I can provide you a solution but you’d have to give me absolute power to implement it … your children will be eternally grateful (trust me, I’m a dog). Experts never lie—
You can take refuge in God already knows what’s happening, and He’s onto it (so don’t get him mad) —
