First Snow of the 2020 / 2021 Winter

Filed under: Life — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:50 PM (17:50)

Albuquerque’s first snow day of the 2020 / 2021 winter season is upon us, about 60 days before the official start of winter (21 December) —

The one thing I absolutely hate about snow is driving through it.

It seems as though every idiot, imbecile, and moron in Albuquerque picks snow days to go for a drive across town.

Aside from that, I love snow days. They’re the one thing that I miss from Pennsylvania.

Quote of the Day for Sunday, 12 January 2020

Isn’t it funny how liberals tell YOU that you can’t have a valid opinion of climate change because “you aren’t a scientist,” and yet they make climate heroes of a former Tenn. politician whose only qualification is that his father was a Senator, a bunch of Hollywood actors who have no qualifications at all, and a 16-year-old kid who has openly admitted she is skipping school.

Podesta is WRONG on CO2 and Population Growth

Filed under: Politics, Science — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:56 AM (04:56)

On 23 January 2018, the Washington Post ran a rather silly op-ed piece by John Podesta and Timothy E. Wirth titled Women’s rights issues are climate change issues.

Just when you think that the willful insanity of “intersectionality”[1] hasn’t gone far enough, something like this comes along.

In that article, they made the following assertion —

Recent research has reinforced the understanding of the benefits of helping families plan the timing, spacing and number of their children. Brown University researchers showed that slowing population growth can enhance economic outcomes and reduce emissions simultaneously.

To summarize the article, Podesta and Wirth say that slowing population growth will stop or slown down climate change, thus leading to better lives for all, and that’s why the dams holding back the rivers of public money must be torn down.

Still, Podesta and Wirth have it backwards — as per capita wealth and standard of living improve, population growth slows down.

This has been known since the 1990s.

If he’s truly concerned about this, I’m sure they’ll be willing to lead the way on reducing the population and controlling carbon dioxide emissions.

In particular, they can volunteer to stop exhaling so much of the carbon dioxide they think of as a “poison.” Both Podesta and Wirth have already done their bit of pissing in the gene pool, so we’ll have to settle for half a loaf here.

In fact, it seems that while carbon dioxide doesn’t seem to be the planet-killing greenhouse gas that the eco-fascists claim it is, it IS responsible for increased plant growth around the world. That’s not just me spouting off the top of my head here, that’s from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)[2] — one of the “go-to” governmental agencies on the climate-change / global warming “issue,” per the eco-fascists themselves.

As for the population “issue,” I’ve already noted that Podesta and Wirth have done their “damage” (I don’t know what their kids are like, so the quotation marks might be unnecessary), but they still, rather hypocritically in my opinion, insist that OTHER PEOPLE’S lives be publicly managed.

See “The Stork, by Nina Haley (embedded below) for an example of this sort of thinking —

Notice how after the stork-dropped bundles land on the ground, there’s an explosion, followed by babies, houses, and SUVs?

Take a closer look at the instances of when there’s multiple storks flying in formation. Don’t they look something like this?

That’s the U.S. Army Air Corps’ 384th Bomb Group en route to their target during World War II.

How about this one?

Didn’t the storks dropping baby bundles in Haley’s video clip look a bit like those B-17s dropping ordnance?

Basically, the most realistic way to describe the mindset of the population limiters and regulators is the term antihumanist[3] — “humans are basically bad, thus they need to be limited and controlled.”

In conclusion, all I need is mailing addresses for Podesta and Wirth. That way, I’ll know where to send the plastic bags, so that they can lead by example on these “issues.”

Quote of the Day for 30 December 2010

“What’s really ironic is that, if someone claims to see a flying saucer, which hurts no one and costs nothing, debunkers come out in force. But let a former vice-president claim environmental apocalypse is upon us, and suddenly we’re appropriating billions and changing our lifestyles.”
