                                   WHAT FOSSIL FUELS ?
                 THE REAL PROBLEM IS UNNATURAL GAS


Here is a typical extract from one of these propaganda pamphlets, ingeniously constructed so as falsely to imply that our impact on the climate is a great deal larger than what is measured. For instance:
“... the significantly increased emission of CO2 and other greenhouse gases by humans is rapidly intensifying the effect and making the atmosphere noticeably warmer.”...



Another misleading passage says:
“Methane is mainly produced in the stomachs of ruminants such as cows – which is why our meat consumption noticeably amplifies climate change – but also in rice cultivation, on waste dumps and in sewage treatment plants.”
Actually, the largest methane sources are likely to be abiogenic.


... And the largest biogenic source of methane is not what Congressman Sensenbrenner bluntly calls “cow farts”.  It is termite ants... even if... all of the five-sixths of a degree of warming since 1950 was our achievement, one-sixth of that five-sixths of a degree is a sizzling one-seventh of a degree.

                     REAL LIVE  VIRAL DENIAL  AT

Attention, Citizens! 

The #COVID19 Emergency Is Over!

FORGET THE FAKE MSM "ARITHMETIC CONSENSUS "
1 / 424  = . 1%,  BECAUSE WILLIS  SAYS SO
Around the world, both state and local governments looked at wildly exaggerated computer model projections of millions of virus deaths...

The virus hardly affects anyone—it has killed a maximum of 0.1% of the population in the very worst-hit locations. One-tenth of one measly percent...

But on the other hand, more than thirty million workers in the US are unemployed... these lockdowns are far, far more destructive than the virus... It’s like … it’s like … well, about the only example I can think of which has equivalent idiocy is if a mosquito were to land on your head and you grabbed a sledgehammer to get rid of it...

The... lesson of the emergency is the extreme importance of —“ Nefas fit nocere magnopere   Primum non nocere”, which means “This is one dangerous idiot First, do no harm”...

 Of Quinine And Chloroquine

After all the people saying we shouldn’t take chloroquine because of the side effects, let me... say I moved to the Solomon Islands, in 1984... after stopping chloroquine, I got malaria... my mad mate Mike told me... to take three weekly doses at once (1500 mg, or 900 mg of base), then the same thing 24 hours later, then the same thing on the third day... So I started using his plan, and I never got full-blown malaria again. 
Just take nine weeks worth of chloroquine [4.5 grams] in three days... I say that anyone who gets the virus should at least try it.
WHAT COULD
POSSIBLY  GO WRONG ?

That would put 53 mg/kg of chloroquine into a 190 pound adult,  but the National Institute of Health warns:

"the lethal dose of chloroquine is... 
30-50 mg/kg"

and the Poisoning & Drug Overdose handbook cautions:
"Chloroquine overdose is common, especially in countries where malaria is prevalent, and the mortality rate is 10–30%"

    VISCOUNT MONCKTON'S MORE INTELLIGENT OLDER
            ROLE MODEL FALLS VICTIM TO CORONAVIRUS

QUADRANT SADLY REPORTS THE PASSING OF A GREAT MAN:
Valé the “Loins of Longleat” Alexander Thynn 7th Marquess of Bath ...passed away in early April at the age of 87, he was among the first coroneted victims of coronavirus (Could he have caught it from one of his lions?)
Elizabeth I...to see Longleat... had a courtier write to Sir John Thynne  in 1574. Five centuries later Elizabeth II was... attending a Thynne family wedding — where the cake was said to be laced with LSD. ERII was observed to exhibit no side effects, so it is presumed she had declined but had let them eat cake...
But the wildest cat in the park , Alexander... wasn’t always like that. Young Alexander (from 1946, Viscount Weymouth), had followed the traditional route: Eton (a member of Pop), the Life Guards, Oxford (president of the Bullingdon), before going to Paris to paint. There, in the City of Light, something happened – he converted to polygyny, pantheism, and pretty well everything that would annoy his father.

     THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY ECHO CHAMBER :
                                    INSIDE AND OUT

Jennifer Metcalfe

Abstract: 
Blogs provide potential for publics to engage more deliberatively through dialogue in controversial science than one-way dissemination methods. This study investigated who was commenting on two antithetical climate change blogsites; how they were commenting; and the quality of their dialogue. Most research into science blogs has focused on bloggers rather than commenters. This study found that both blogsites were dominated by a small number of commenters who used contractive dialogue to promote their own views to like-minded commenters. Such blogsites are consolidating their own polarised publics rather than deliberately engaging them in climate change science.

Discussion and conclusions
In this study, I set out to examine the comments on two climate change blogs to determine how the conversations generated by these comments reflect the potential of blogs for two-way deliberative dialogue. The analysis of comments indicated that most commenters engaging with both blogs wanted to disseminate information and knowledge or express an attitude, which is more reminiscent of one-way communication. Discourse analysis also showed that most comments were contractive in nature with commenters proclaiming or disclaiming and not listening to the views of others...

Using qualitative methods, I investigated the comments on two antithetical blogs on climate change science: https://skepticalscience.com/ and http://joannenova.com.au/. These blogs were chosen because they were well-established, had global reach, were written by science communicators, and aimed to use scientific information as their base. 

I chose antithetical blogs to examine whether commenters opposed to the consensus science of climate change engaged differently to those supportive of it. My reasoning was that such an investigation might reveal how commenters with such polarised views might be engaged more deliberatively with the science. However, my investigation of two climate change blogs among thousands does not intend to be generalisable or representative of all climate change blogs...

The blogs examined appeared to create and maintain their own publics as a small number of dominant commenters sought and reinforced information congruent with their own views. This is a similar finding to an analysis by Collins and Nerlich [2015] of commenters to online Guardian articles on climate change. With each blog having a core group of commenters tending to dominate the dialogue, there is even less likelihood of significant deliberation amongst commenters. This is not surprising given science bloggers often aim to create publics with similar political and ideological points of view [Luzón, 2013]...

This analysis of the comments on two antithetical climate change blogs indicates a narrowing of scientific debate to one dominated by a few major commenters who have little patience with others who disagree with their point of view; commenters are chanting to their own choir. This means that, at least for these two blogs, there is little deliberation of climate science and its role in society. 

Consequently, it is likely that such blogs are unlikely to engage publics more deliberately in a dialogue about publicly controversial science. Rather, the dialogue that occurs in these blogs offers spaces for like-minded people to share information on controversial science topics through one-way communication.

        CAN HYPEROBJECT ORIENTED CHRONO-TOPOGRAPHY
     REIFY THE CONTINUING CRISIS OF CLIMATE ONTOLOGY ?

FURTHER PROOF 

SPINOZA WAS WISE IN AVOIDING A PHILOSOPHY Ph.D :
In this paper, I take up the theme of Spinoza's ars vivendi in relation to its
temporality; duration as the very rhythm of life. In the face of an intensifying
climate crisis, our experience of the rhythm of life in the everyday and its 
implications for the deep time of climate futures seem increasingly out of joint.
Building on Morfino's argument of the necessary relationship between ontology and history, I explore the connections between the rhythm of life and our  (Western) comprehension of the climate crisis. 
This framing provides insights into a fatal confusion. This confusion is fueled by the chrono-topography of the modern capitalist city,  its intensification of a perceived separation of daily life from bioenergetic processes; and it is amplified in object-oriented ontology, which, in its treatment of climate as a hyperobject, both accepts and reifies a split between ontology and history.
I argue, in contrast, that to think of the world as multi-relational and multi-temporal provides us with tools to assess the politics of the multitude in relation to the climate crisis, to better comprehend the complexity of the conjuncture and the schematization of divergent climate futures, and to fashion a responsive and responseable ars vivendi.

YES, TUCKER, BUT FEW SCIENTISTS CLASSIFY CAMELS AS FISH

Daily Caller founder & Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson says of the deadly coronavirus' origins: 

"[M]any in  the intelligence world... suspected  right away that the story the  Chinese government  was telling about this virus was almost certainly a lie. 

The first indication of that was the torrent of obvious nonsense coming from official sources in Beijing.

Initially, Chinese officials claimed the virus had jumped from an obscure, scaly animal called a pangolin, which was sold in the Wuhan wet market. That explanation didn’t make sense. Wet markets are seafood markets. Pangolins are mammals. So for that matter are bats."

ALAS FOR TUCKER, THE CALLER REPORTS:

Here’s A List Of Some Of The Most Unusual Animals, Reptiles Available At A Typical Wuhan Wet Market
Chris White  Tech Reporter,   March 30, 2020

 DON'T LIKE STIR FRIED FOX NEWS ?
TRY THE LIVE WOLF CUB REPORTER TARTARE:
 

Vendors at Wuhan, China’s so-called wet markets sell everything from peacocks to kangaroos, and even an occasional camel or cat, according to reports in February.
Experts say these wet markets are where coronavirus, or COVID-19, originated in early December 2019 before hitting the United States, where it has killed nearly 3,000 people. Clerks in the market list crocodiles, wolf pups and cats as menu items, the South China Morning Post reported in February.

New York Times investigative reporter Muyi Xiao posted in a Jan. 20 tweet what he said was a copy of the menu
Here are some of the animals included in the picture Xiao posted:
  • Peacocks
  • Bats
  • Snakes
  • Foxes
  • Deer
  • Dogs 
  • Ostriches
  • Camels
  • Hedgehogs
NPR’s Jason Beaubien explained in a Jan. 31 article why people call them wet markets.
“I visited the Tai Po wet market in Hong Kong, and it’s quite obvious why the term ‘wet’ is used,” he wrote at the time.
“Live fish in open tubs splash water all over the floor. The countertops of the stalls are red with blood as fish are gutted and filleted right in front of the customers’ eyes,” Beaubien noted.
He added: “Melting ice adds to the slush on the floor. There’s lots of water, blood, fish scales and chicken guts. Things are wet.”
Scientists say the virus made its appearance through a process that ends in a the creation of a zoonotic disease, a virus that leaps from animals to people.
Here’s the process, according to researchers.

Wild and exotic animals are mixed with domesticated species in an environment that weakens the animals’ immune systems, leading to a mix of genetic code that can spread from one species to another, according to biologist Kevin Olival

     WILL THE STRATEGIC DISINFECTANT  INITIATIVE 
     MAKE CORONAVIRUS IMPOTENT AND OBSOLETE?

The White House Office Of American Innovation
has risen to the President's daring challenge:
“Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and... supposing you brought the light inside the body, either through the skin or some other way. And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute --  is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside, or almost a cleaning?"
   with a brilliant new Strategic Disinfectant Initiative:

But to be fair, stay tuned :
A trial to see whether two anti-malarial drugs could prevent Covid-19 has begun in Brighton and Oxford.
Chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine or a placebo will be given to more than 40,000 healthcare workers from Europe, Africa, Asia and South America.
All the participants are staff who are in contact with Covid-19 patients.
The first UK participants in the global trial are being enrolled on Thursday at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals and the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. 
They will be given either hydroxychloroquine or a placebo for three months. At sites in Asia, participants will be given chloroquine or a placebo.
These are the first of a planned 25 UK sites, with results expected by the end of the year. 
The trial is open to anyone delivering direct care to coronavirus patients in the UK, as long as they have not been diagnosed with Covid-19. 
It will test whether the drugs can prevent healthcare workers exposed to the virus from contracting it.

          THE TIMOTHY LEARY OF THE CLIMATE WARS

 Can Psychedelics Treat Climate Grief?
 ASKS COVERING CLIMATE NOW FOUNDER MARK HERTSGAARD IN THE NATION :



In his best-selling book How to Change Your Mind, journalist Michael Pollan reports that 80 percent of terminally ill patients...  felt less anxiety and depression after taking psychedelic drugs. 

Mark Hertsgaard, environment correspondent for The Nation... interviewed Pollan 
Mark Hertsgaard: 

Let’s be clear—in those clinical trials, terminally ill patients took psychedelic drugs... the results sound remarkable... Do those experiences and your other research suggest that psychedelic drugs can be an antidote to climate grief?


MP:
The first person I talked to about this was Rachael Petersen, an environmentalist... developing software... to watch fires around the world in real-time This was incredibly depressing work... and as a result entered into a serious depression. She received psychedelic therapy, and while it was not a panacea, she felt it helped her, allowed her to reset and continue to do this difficult work.



MH: But climate grief is different in important ways from an individual facing a terminal diagnosis. Climate grief is not necessarily about your own death but more about the death of the world around you—a kind of collective, civilizational death.

MP: Yeah, and here’s what the parallels break down a little bit because part of what psychedelic therapy seems to do for individuals is reconcile them to death. And that sort of acceptance is the last thing you want in a climate activist!

MH: Are psychedelics relevant to climate grief in any other ways?

MP: Yes...

MH: You’re a parent. I’m a parent; my daughter just turned 15. A big part of my climate grief relates to the future she’s going to inherit. And not just her but the countless other kids around the world in her generation. Can psychedelics be helpful to parents dealing with climate grief?

MP: I think potentially [it can], to the extent that many years of doing this work has dug a certain groove in your mind...  Think of psychedelics as a fresh snowfall that fills all the grooves, allowing you to take a new path down the hill.

MH: I’ve covered climate change as a journalist for 30 years, and when people ask, I always say that the only solution to climate grief for me is taking action—doing something to make me feel I’m having an effect on this. Taking action is clearly a climate solution. Are psychedelic drugs, in a different way, also a climate solution?

MP: No,

                              IT'S SPRINGTIME FOR GODWIN

CLIMATE ETC. FAN SETS GENESIS BACK 4000 YEARS

The pre-flood and pre-coal world was marked by abundance, health, and prosperity. The average human lifespan lasted many hundreds of years, and the climate across the globe was temperate and pleasant. Unfortunately.... , with the exception of a few select Environmentally-Conscious and Planet-Loving individuals, the society that indulged in coal burning was led down the wrong path into climate denial, idolatry, and incest. 
This all came to a head in the year 1536 of Creation (2225 BCE), when God put together His Incest Action Plan and foretold of the horrible events that would come to pass in terms of floods, drought, killer storms, wildfires, and sea level rise if the Incest Budget of the Paris Incest Agreement Plan was not obeyed.
NOAA is a righteous and upright climate science organization and God instructed NOAA on what to do about the sea level rise issue. He told NOAA that the only way to save the planet was to build an Ark large enough to hold two of each species on earth including humans and to put them all on the Ark which will float on the sea level rise. God gave exact instructions on how the ark was to be built. It was to comprise three stories: the top for NOAA climate scientists and their families; the middle for the human couple to be saved and for the animals; and the bottom for trash to ensure that no plastic shall be left behind in the ocean. It was to measure 300 cubits in length, 50 cubits in width, and 30 in height.  Electric power for the ark would be provided by wind turbines so the ark can have light and heat and power for air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, and microwave ovens..
Finally, in the year 1656 (2105 BCE), The West Antarctic Ice Sheet disintegrated and collapsed just as NOAA had foretold and rapid and irreversible sea level rise began just as NOAA had foretold and which the climate deniers and sinners had denied.
After the seventeenth day of the collapse of the WAIS the sea level  rose steadily and irreversibly for forty decades until the face of the earth was entirely submerged, covering the summits of the highest mountains. Finally, the sea level rise subsided, but the waters continued to churn under violent tropical cyclones of unprecedented intensity and destructiveness that had formed in all six cyclone basins. After this period of time, the oceans were calm and the sea slowly began to return to its pre-Flood and pre-coal level.
NOAA sent out a raven and then a dove on a mission to survey the earth and to report on the sea level and climate condition of the planet and the birds returned with positive signs indicating that the planet and the climate had stabilized. It was thus that on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei of the year 1657 (2104 BCE), the sea level and the climate had fully returned to their pre-Flood pre-coal conditions so that NOAA and the breeding pairs of all the species on earth including humans disembarked to begin the long task of re-populating the earth.
