Early humans witnessed global cooling, warming, and massive fires from comet debris impacts says major study

global temperatures 20,000 years

    

New research suggests toward end of Ice Age, human beings witnessed fires larger than dinosaur killers

On a ho-hum day some 12,800 years ago, the Earth had emerged from another ice age. Things were warming up, and the glaciers had retreated.

Out of nowhere, the sky was lit with fireballs. This was followed by shock waves.

Fires rushed across the landscape, and dust clogged the sky, cutting off the sunlight. As the climate rapidly cooled, plants died, food sources were snuffed out, and the glaciers advanced again. Ocean currents shifted, setting the climate into a colder, almost “ice age” state that lasted an additional thousand years.

Finally, the climate began to warm again, and people again emerged into a world with fewer large animals and a human culture in North America that left behind completely different kinds of spear points.

This is the story supported by a massive study of geochemical and isotopic markers just published in the Journal of Geology.

The results are so massive that the study had to be split into two papers.

“Extraordinary Biomass-Burning Episode and Impact Winter Triggered by the Younger Dryas Cosmic Cosmic Impact ~12,800 Years Ago” is divided into “Part I: Ice Cores and Glaciers” and “Part 2: Lake, Marine, and Terrestrial Sediments.”

The paper’s 24 authors include KU Emeritus Professor of Physics & Astronomy Adrian Melott and Professor Brian Thomas, a 2005 doctoral graduate from KU, now at Washburn University.

“The work includes measurements made at more than 170 different sites across the world,” Melott said.

The solid line defines the current known limits of the Younger Dryas Boundary

    

The KU researcher and his colleagues believe the data suggests the disaster was touched off when Earth collided with fragments of a disintegrating comet that was roughly 62 miles in diameter – the remnants of which persist within our solar system to this day.

“The hypothesis is that a large comet fragmented and the chunks impacted the Earth, causing this disaster,” said Melott. “A number of different chemical signatures – carbon dioxide, nitrate, ammonia and others – all seem to indicate that an astonishing 10 percent of the Earth’s land surface, or about 10 million square kilometers, was consumed by fires.”

According to Melott, analysis of pollen suggests pine forests were probably burned off to be replaced by poplar, which is a species that colonizes cleared areas.

Indeed, the authors posit the cosmic impact could have touched off the Younger Dryas cool episode, biomass burning, late Pleistocene extinctions of larger species and “human cultural shifts and population declines.”

“Computations suggest that the impact would have depleted the ozone layer, causing increases in skin cancer and other negative health effects,” Melott said. “The impact hypothesis is still a hypothesis, but this study provides a massive amount of evidence, which we argue can only be all explained by a major cosmic impact.”

Extraordinary Biomass-Burning Episode and Impact Winter Triggered by the Younger Dryas Cosmic Impact ∼12,800 Years Ago. 1. Ice Cores and Glaciers

Abstract

The Younger Dryas boundary (YDB) cosmic-impact hypothesis is based on considerable evidence that Earth collided with fragments of a disintegrating ≥100-km-diameter comet, the remnants of which persist within the inner solar system ∼12,800 y later. Evidence suggests that the YDB cosmic impact triggered an “impact winter” and the subsequent Younger Dryas (YD) climate episode, biomass burning, late Pleistocene megafaunal extinctions, and human cultural shifts and population declines. The cosmic impact deposited anomalously high concentrations of platinum over much of the Northern Hemisphere, as recorded at 26 YDB sites at the YD onset, including the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 ice core, in which platinum deposition spans ∼21 y (∼12,836-12,815 cal BP). The YD onset also exhibits increased dust concentrations, synchronous with the onset of a remarkably high peak in ammonium, a biomass-burning aerosol. In four ice-core sequences from Greenland, Antarctica, and Russia, similar anomalous peaks in other combustion aerosols occur, including nitrate, oxalate, acetate, and formate, reflecting one of the largest biomass-burning episodes in more than 120,000 y. In support of widespread wildfires, the perturbations in CO2 records from Taylor Glacier, Antarctica, suggest that biomass burning at the YD onset may have consumed ∼10 million km2, or ∼9% of Earth’s terrestrial biomass. The ice record is consistent with YDB impact theory that extensive impact-related biomass burning triggered the abrupt onset of an impact winter, which led, through climatic feedbacks, to the anomalous YD climate episode.

Come on now: Scientists say “apocalyptic predictions” about global warming by the U.N. are NOT credible


Image: Come on now: Scientists say “apocalyptic predictions” about global warming by the U.N. are NOT credible

(Natural News)
Adding to the general confusion and disagreement about the true dangers of global warming, a new study has determined that the UN’s “apocalyptic” global warming predictions are completely overstated.

Researchers from the University of Exeter used new calculations to determine the likely impact that greenhouse gases would have on global warming, and they were able to discount extreme scenarios like the UN’s prediction of the world warming by as much as 19.8 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100. They’ve now reduced the range of potential outcomes at the end of the century by more than half.

Their modeling method looked at how much our planet’s average surface temperature would rise should the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere double.  While past attempts to determine equilibrium climate sensitivity have looked at the historical temperature records, the new study focused on the year-to-year global temperature fluctuations. They analyzed how responsive short-term temperature changes were to slight bumps in the climate regardless of greenhouse gas emissions.

While the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the UN has predicted that equilibrium climate sensitivity would be in the range of 1.5 to 4.5 degrees Celsius, the new study sees a range of 2.2 to 3.4 degrees Celsius. This means the “end of the world” according to the UN is not as close as they would like you to believe.

However, the researchers concede that their new model does not take any possibility of rapid climate shifts caused by the planet itself into consideration. For example, the thawing of the carbon-rich permafrost on the planet, ice sheets melting in Antarctica, or a gulf stream collapse could all cause a big shift.

Experts are praising the new study

Their “ingenious” approach was lauded by University of Leeds Professor Piers Forster. In a companion article published in the journal Nature, he wrote: “The idea underpinning this work is so enviably simple that it will make climate scientists ask, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’”

This study is not likely to go down well with some global warming alarmists, however. A professor from the University of Colorado Boulder, Roger A. Pielke Jr., called the new study “clever” on Twitter, writing: “If your climate advocacy is grounded in ‘[it’s] gonna be bad, really bad’ arguments, then new science (‘not as bad’) puts you in an awkward position. No doubt some catastrophists will today feel a need to diss the new study lest they give evil deniers due.”

You may recall a similar story last year about how global warming climate models are blatantly incorrect and biased toward churning out overblown predictions designed to frighten the masses. On that occasion, a paper that was published in Nature Geoscience concluded that faulty software models were used by the IPCC and widely cited by those with a vested interest in furthering the global warming narrative. They showed that climate change was not quite the urgent threat to our planet that it had been made out to be. Is anyone starting to notice a pattern here?

Top 10 "causes" and "proof" of global warming – that aren’t actually happening at all

Image: Top 10 “causes” and “proof” of global warming – that aren’t actually happening at all

(Natural News)
Every single global warming believer and propagandist has changed their name for the big “science-based” lie to “climate change” because it’s just too dang obvious that nothing humans are doing is making the world “heat up.” The global warming scam has been thoroughly debunked, on every level, including science, data, and by Mother Nature herself. Still, it’s the “most pressing environmental challenge of our time!” We must all band together and get rid of carbon dioxide so we can all freeze and starve to death – which is the actual realized nightmare if we do what the global warming alarmists want us to do.

So here’s a better plan. Let’s all band together and talk about one of the biggest “science” hoaxes and Ponzi schemes ever besieged upon mankind, weighing on the consciences of want-to-do-right humans who just can’t seem to get enough from the fake news networks, including their own local news and newspapers. From fake causes to fake “proof,” we hear all the reasons humans are causing the earth to heat up, the oceans to flood all the coastlines, the glaciers to quickly melt, and all the humans to suffocate from the heat, droughts, lack of food, and overwhelming population growth.

Besides all of the causes, we’ve also heard all the “results” of global warming, from intolerance to violent upheavals, to Trump support and right on down to Trump denial disorder. So let’s bring it all out “into the light” – all the lies, deception, and population reduction theories that the psycho-eugenicists, globalists and the intolerant leftists (undercover American communists and socialists) spiel out like psycho-babble while calling it all “science!”

Here are the top “causes” of global warming, along with “proof” as offered by the climate change propagandists and the fake news media

  1. Too much automobile exhaust – of course, nearly every human being must feel guilty enough to contribute to the globalist’s bank accounts, so why not accuse everyone who owns motor vehicle!
  2. The greenhouse effect – only middle-class Americans are responsible for global warming. Rich white dudes flying around the world in leer jets (who own three homes and six vehicles) are only needed to help everyone else understand the damage we’re all doing to the planet.
  3. We’re destroying the ozone layer – your cars and your aerosol sprays are destroying the planet, but corporations that spray deadly chemicals on our crops are saving the starving, over-populated planet by killing bugs and weeds. Sure!
  4. Too many cow farts (according to the corrupt EPA) – Oh yes, there is a “study” for every Ponzi scheme invented by the crooks at the EPA! Hey, let’s call it the “Clean Air Act” and get all the moronic Americans to back up their own financial demise.
  5. There are just too many people on Earth and we must depopulate to save the important people and provide for “the greater good.”
  6. Only higher taxes can fix the (fake) carbon problem of too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that’s “trapping solar energy” as proclaimed by the Supreme Court.
  7. Al Gore needs to get richer to the tune of $15 trillion and doesn’t want to be proven a serial liar like Bill and Hillary.
  8. NASA charts prove it (even though they altered data themselves).
  9. A frozen, dry planet would be better than a warm, lush one.
  10. Anything proclaimed as “Science!” must be true and those who don’t bow down are “anti-science!” and should be jailed immediately.

Bad science is behind fake global warming, toxic GMOs and the massive prescription drug epidemic

When they say “It’s not about the money,” it’s ALWAYS about the money. Through excessive taxes, levies, guilt, and hollow threats, the globalists want everyone to fork over more of their hard-earned money for a fake global crisis that’s been dismantled and debunked thoroughly and entirely. Not only was the East Coast of the USA just hit with a massive “cyclone bomb” of freezing weather and snow, but the global warming scare has fallen apart on all fronts recently. Now all the alarmists are trolling social media and fake news using the term “climate change” so they can blame any threatening weather on humans and support the fake science they’ve been brainwashed to believe. The fact is that we’re actually at the beginning of a long cooling phase, but the alarmists don’t want to ever talk about that.

If you really think about it, most alarmists are the same “sheeple” who drink fluoridated tap water, take prescription medications, eat conventional (GMO) food daily, and watch fake news religiously. They’ve all been dumbed down and drugged up.

Climate change alarmists want to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which would actually make worldwide temperatures plummet. Currently, carbon is at record LOW levels for Earth’s history. Plus, it’s volcanoes that put most of the carbon in the atmosphere, not humans, so you were saying?

The real goal of the globalists is to reduce population by killing off a few billion people using toxic vaccines and bad healthcare. Haven’t you heard Bill Gates at the TED convention – he literally brags about it.

If you disagree with global warming, the elitists and the mass media regard you as a terrorist who wants to destroy America. You are “anti-science” and anti-American. You are the reason the earth will heat up and we will all die from floods, starvation, and mass pollution. Since global warming is a big lie and is being dismantled now, you must call it “climate change,” that way any severe weather events can be blamed on the “deniers.”

If you really want to make changes that are sustainable and friendly to the ecosystems around you, support local farmers, buy organic products, boycott corporations and never ever pay any attention to the fake news mass media cry-bullies. Now watch this highly informative video from the Health Ranger, Mike Adams, proving that carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant.

AP Global Warming Alarmists Fear Winter Olympians’ Line of Work Threatened

The Associated Press is freaking out about global warming threatening the future of the Winter Olympics. AP Sports Writers Andrew Dampf and Eric Willemsen contributed to a doom-and-gloom story — run by USA Today Sports — stating that warming weather conditions are hampering U.S. and foreign Olympic ski team training opportunities. The AP’s “exclusive” agenda-driven panic attack, world competition is underway in anticipation of the 2018 Games in South Korea.

The AP’s dire take on the Olympians’ desperate search for good powder schusses around inconvenient truths and implies they’re practically having to re-route around Dante’s Inferno. Notice the months mentioned below; they’re summer months:

The hellishly named “Lucifer” heat wave that baked Europe in July and August wreaked havoc on teams’ schedules. Canadian skicross racers had to cancel plans to train on Italy’s Stelvio glacier that turned a sickly gray, rerouting to Mount Hood, Oregon, instead. Canadians endured issues elsewhere, scrubbing a planned summer training trip to Argentina because of hostile weather and extreme winds. … (French ski team member Ben Cavet) was shocked by the visible deterioration of his regular venue for summer training .

Last year, the aerials team stopped water training at its headquarters in Park City, Utah, in mid-October, then sat and waited a month for snow that came late to the mountain that hosted the Winter Games 15 years ago. The World Cup season began in China, and the Americans were forced to travel there not having set foot on snow in months. The results, not surprisingly, were dismal: not a single podium and only one finish in the top 5.

Mild temperatures and lack of snow in Germany, Croatia and Michigan hit the 2015-16 season with multiple cancellations and venue changes. Last season began with events in Colorado and Alberta scrubbed because of lack of snow.

Last year? Two years ago? How bout we get back to this year and the powder Olympians and non-Olympians are finding.

<<< Please support MRC’s NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today. >>>

Ben Cavet, a member of the French team and a global warming alarmist, says, “It is worrying, very worrying,” he added. “What scares me about global warming is that you can see that the world is suffering in some of the most beautiful places on Earth.”

Once more the reader is yanked back to summer: “Austria’s Moelltaler Glacier closed from Aug. 15-Sept. 7 because of what its operators said were “water gutters in the ice” and other safety concerns.” Does snow not morally melt in August? One bright guy gets it — Umberto Capitani from an Italian ski area, who said, “Partly it was because of the heat.”

It only gets worse for these alarmists, as global warming leads to additional problems. AP’s report says, “Environmentally minded athletes are wrestling with the moral dilemma of contributing to atmospheric pollution with their widening search for snow. We take planes to go overseas. We take cars every day to go training,” said French snowboard-cross racer Pierre Vaultier, gold medalist at the 2014 Sochi Games. “We are not examples about how to decrease global warming.”

They aren’t the first people to complain about global warming while leaving giant-sized carbon footprints. Think “Al Gore.”

AP also frets over warnings “that worse is to come for winter sports, and that more warming will render proven Olympic venues unsuitable, even with greater use of artificial snow-making.” The writers already fear that Winter Games between now and 2030 are in jeopardy due to global warming.

Scientists who haven’t given in to fear and panic say warming and cooling climates are part of the Earth’s history. The slight 20th century rise in global temperature is within the bounds of natural temperature fluctuations over the past 3,000 years. Also a 2013 study published in the peer-reviewed journal Boreas found that summer temperatures during the Roman Empire and Medieval periods were “consistently higher” than temperatures during the 20th century. (Leif Kullman, “Ecological Tree Line History and Palaeoclimate – Review of Megafossil Evidence from the Sweedish Scandes,” Boreas, 2013).

And that was before there were cars and factories on the planet. Before Al Gore’s many travels, too!

Thirty years of fear mongering, and global warming still hasn’t destroyed the planet

Image: Thirty years of fear mongering, and global warming still hasn’t destroyed the planet

(Natural News)
When we hear “experts” talking about how global warming is going to destroy our planet in 25 years, it’s natural to wonder how much of a possibility that really is. Is Earth going to become completely inhabitable and cause all of us to die a miserable death? They’ve got a lot of predictions and projections, and they seem very convincing. However, it is worth keeping in mind that they said the same thing 30 years ago… and it never came to pass.

For the last three decades, activists and scientist alike have been sounding the alarm that our planet is on the brink of experiencing a global warming apocalypse. If we don’t stop using fossil fuels entirely, they insist that we are destined for a future of doom and gloom.

It would all be very frightening were it not for the fact that we keep hearing this over and over and it has yet to become reality. It has happened so often, in fact, that the Daily Caller recently put together a list of the many occasions on which experts have gotten their doomsday predictions completely wrong.

For example, there was the time 25 years ago when 1,700 scientists signed a letter to warn that society would collapse if pollution and overpopulation weren’t dealt with immediately. Their group, which now counts 15,000 members among its ranks, has recently issued another warning, and it’s hard to take them seriously considering how wrong they were the first time around.

In another highly publicized warning, Prince Charles said we had just 96 months to save the planet from an irreversible collapse in terms of climate and ecosystem. That was in July 2009, so some quick math tells us the deadline has come and gone. We’re pleased to report that this predicted collapse did not occur, and we feel even better about the warning when we consider the fact that he lobbied lawmakers in the U.K. to institute policies that would help his own investments in a Bermuda sustainable forestry company.

Speaking of expired deadlines, if the group of world leaders who met at the Vatican are as prescient as they seemed to think they are, our last chance to save the planet passed two years ago. Likewise, at a May 2014 meeting with John Kerry, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said we had just “500 days to avoid climate chaos.” Once again, the deadline came and passed – is the world now beyond the point of being saved?

Getting it wrong again and again

Some of these predictions merely failed to come to fruition, but others actually predicted the opposite of what happened. For example, environmentalist George Monbiot said in 2002 that within just ten years, the world would have to choose between using arable farming to feed our planet’s animals or using it to feed the people; doing both would no longer be possible at that point. Interestingly, at the time he wrote that, 930 million people were undernourished; that number has now dropped to 805 million.

In one of the most damning predictions, senior U.N. environmental official Noel Brown said that entire nations would be wiped off the planet by rising sea levels should we fail to reverse global warming before the year 2000 rolled around. That was 17 years ago, and we haven’t seen the sea swallow up a single nation yet. That hasn’t stopped them from continuing to sound the same warning even now.

If that all sounds completely over the top to you, consider this: a cover story that recently appeared in New York magazine actually said that the extreme global warming alarmism that we keep hearing about – and that never pans out – is actually too tepid.

‘Global Warming’ 30 years on: How and why it never came to pass

Global Warming

    

For at least three decades scientists and environmental activists have been warning that the world is on the verge of a global warming “apocalypse” that will flood coastal cities, tear up roads and bridges with mega-storms and bring widespread famine and misery to much of the world.

The only solution, they say, is to rid the world of fossil fuels – coal, natural gas and oil – that serve as the pillars of modern society. Only quick, decisive global action can avert the worst effects of manmade climate change, warn international bodies like the United Nations, who say we only have decades left – or even less!

Of course, human civilization has not collapsed, despite decades of predictions that we only have years left to avert disaster. Ten years ago, the U.N. predicted we only had “as little as eight years left to avoid a dangerous global average rise of 2C or more.”

This failed prediction, however, has not stopped the U.N. and others from issuing more apocalyptic statements.

To celebrate nearly three decades of dire predictions, The Daily Caller News Foundation put together this list of some of the most severe doomsday prophecies made by scientists, activists and politicians:

1. Apocalyptic warnings on repeat

A group of 1,700 scientists and experts signed a letter 25 years ago warning of massive ecological and societal collapse if nothing was done to curb overpopulation, pollution and, ultimately, the capitalist society in which we live today.

The Union of Concerned Scientists put out a second letter earlier this year, once again warning of the dire consequences of global warming and other alleged ecological ills. Now numbering 15,000, the group warns “soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out.”

“We must recognize, in our day-to-day lives and in our governing institutions, that Earth with all its life is our only home,” the scientists and experts warned.

It’s a terrifying warning – if you ignore the fact that none of their 1992 warning has come to fruition.

2. The planet will be “uninhabitable” by the end of the century

New York Magazine writer David Wallace-Wells published a 7,000-word article claiming global warming could make Earth “uninhabitable” by “the end of this century.”

Wallace-Wells’s article warned of terrors, like “Heat Death, “Climate Plagues,” “Permanent Economic Collapse” and “Poisoned Oceans.”

“Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century,” Wallace-Wells wrote.

3. Prince Charles’s global warming deadline passed…and nothing happened

Prince Charles famously warned in July 2009 that humanity had only 96 months to save the world from “irretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse, and all that goes with it.” That deadline has passed, and the prince has not issued an update to when the world needs to be saved.

Though the recently-released “Paradise Papers” show Charles lobbied U.K. lawmakers to enact policies that benefited his estate’s investment in a Bermuda company that does sustainable forestry. So, there’s that.

4. ‘Ice Apocalypse’ Now

Liberal writer and climate scientist Eric Holthaus claimed manmade global warming would set off the “ice apocalypse” at a pace “too quickly for humanity to adapt.”

Holthaus warned the wholesale collapse of two Antarctic glaciers – Pine Island and Thwaites – could happen sooner than previously believed, resulting in “flooding coastal cities and creating hundreds of millions of climate refugees.” Sounds terrible, but his conclusions aren’t really backed up by the science.

“I think his article is too pessimistic: that it overstates the possibility of disaster. Too soon, too certain,” Tamsin Edwards, a scientist who’s studied Antarctica, wrote in The Guardian about Holthaus’s article.


Comment: As noted above, our inter-glacial period seems to be ending and we’re moving into an ice-age – but it has nothing to do with human activity.

5. 2015 is the ‘last effective opportunity’ to stop catastrophic warming

World leaders meeting at the Vatican issued a statement saying that 2015 was the “last effective opportunity to negotiate arrangements that keep human-induced warming below 2-degrees [Celsius].”

Pope Francis wants to weigh in on global warming, and is expected to issue an encyclical saying basically the same thing. Francis reiterated that 2015 is the last chance to stop massive warming.

But what he should really say is that the U.N. conference is the “last” chance to cut a deal to stem global warming…since last year when the U.N. said basically the same thing about 2014’s climate summit.

6. France’s foreign minister said we only have “500 days” to stop “climate chaos”

When Laurent Fabius met with Secretary of State John Kerry on May 13, 2014 to talk about world issues he said “we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.”

Ironically at the time of Fabius’ comments, the U.N. had scheduled a climate summit to meet in Paris in December 2015 – some 565 days after his remarks. Looks like the U.N. is 65 days too late to save the world.

7. Former President Barack Obama is the last chance to stop global warming

When Obama made the campaign promise to “slow the rise of the oceans,” some environmentalists may have taken him quite literally.

The United Nations Foundation President Tim Wirth told Climatewire in 2012 that Obama’s second term was “the last window of opportunity” to impose policies to restrict fossil fuel use. Wirth said it’s “the last chance we have to get anything approaching 2 degrees Centigrade,” adding that if “we don’t do it now, we are committing the world to a drastically different place.”

Even before that, then-National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center head James Hansen warned in 2009 that Obama only “has four years to save Earth.”

8. Remember when we had “hours” to stop global warming?

World leaders met in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2009 to potentially hash out another climate treaty. That same year, the head of Canada’s Green Party wrote that there was only “hours” left to stop global warming.

“We have hours to act to avert a slow-motion tsunami that could destroy civilization as we know it,” Elizabeth May, leader of the Greens in Canada, wrote in 2009. “Earth has a long time. Humanity does not. We need to act urgently. We no longer have decades; we have hours. We mark that in Earth Hour on Saturday.”

9. United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there was only 50 days left to save Earth

The year 2009 was a bad time for global warming predictions. That year Brown warned there was only “50 days to save the world from global warming,” the BBC reported. According to Brown there was “no plan B.”

Brown has been booted out of office since then.

10. The U.N.’s top climate scientist said in 2007 we only had four years to save the world

Rajendra Pachauri, the former head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in 2007 that if “there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late.”

“What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment,” he said.

Well, it’s 2017 and no new U.N. climate treaty has been presented. The only thing that’s changed since then is that Pachauri was forced to resign earlier this year amid accusations he sexually harassed multiple female coworkers.

11. Environmentalists warned in 2002 the world had a decade to go green

Environmentalist write George Monbiot wrote in the UK Guardian that within “as little as 10 years, the world will be faced with a choice: arable farming either continues to feed the world’s animals or it continues to feed the world’s people. It cannot do both.”

About 930 million people around the world were undernourished in 2002, according to U.N. data. By 2014, that number shrank to 805 million. Sorry, Monbiot.

12. Global warming apocalypse 1980s edition

The U.N. was already claiming in the late 1980s that the world had only a decade to solve global warming or face the consequences.

The San Jose Mercury News reported June 30, 1989 that a “senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000.”

That prediction didn’t come true 17 years ago, and the U.N. is sounding the same alarm today.

Crying Wolf (Again): UN Chief Warns Global Warming Is “The Defining Threat Of Our Time”

Speaking to attendees at the United Nations climate talks in Bonn, Germany, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (shown) warned that the world may have only five years to Doomsday, unless concerted action is taken to keep global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. Climate change, said Guterres, is “the defining threat of our time,” and requires concerted action by the international community.

“There’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate,” he insisted. The UN honcho was addressing the 23rd annual “Conference Of the Parties”(COP23) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which was scheduled to run from November 6-17. However, as with virtually all UN conferences and summits, it ran into overtime, wrapping up early in the morning on Saturday, November 18, around dawn.

Before ascending to his current position as secretary-general of the United Nations, otherwise known as the corrupt Dictators Club, Guterres had distinguished himself as a lifelong Marxist-globalist, becoming secretary-general of the Socialist Party of Portugal, prime minister of Portugal, and president of the worldwide Socialist International. As UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Guterres was a top architect of the disastrous (and still ongoing) “refugee” tsunami that flooded Europe with over one million (mostly Muslim) migrants from the Middle East and Africa in 2015.

Global Warming ‘Weaponizing Smallpox’ on CBS’s ‘Madam Secretary’

We’ve heard all the usual warnings about the dangers of global warming, like rising sea levels and uncontrollable weather patterns. However, the reemergence of smallpox was a new one for me. CBS’s Madam Secretary dives into that latent threat in the latest episode.

The November 19 episode “North To The Future” begins with a Russian ecological dissident escaping to the United States only to later be diagnosed with smallpox. With Russia being one of the few countries that carries a sample of the extinct disease, the U.S. administration quickly accuses the country of biological warfare, though the Russian ambassador firmly denies it.

However, with the help of retired U.N. Ambassador Kat Sandoval (Sara Ramirez), they soon discover that Russia wasn’t behind the spread of smallpox, Mother Nature was. Or at least that’s how Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) explains it to the president.

Dalton: How does an eradicated disease just show up in Siberia?

Elizabeth: Well, Mr. President, our working theory is permafrost.

Jay: The permanently frozen soil under the topsoil in Arctic regions.

Russell: We’re aware.

Elizabeth: Permafrost is so cold, organic matter inside anything that dies in the Arctic doesn’t decompose. Carbon dioxide in plants, anthrax inside infected reindeer, smallpox in humans, remains frozen in the ground, dormant.

Jay: Until the permafrost thaws, like it’s doing in Siberia. Then, it all gets released.

Elizabeth: And the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet.

Dalton: So Russia isn’t weaponizing smallpox. The Earth is.

Elizabeth: If we don’t act fast to work with Russia to contain this, we could be looking at a global pandemic.

First of all, considering real-life measurements on the Arctic ice caps and permafrost have fluctuated in the past, I’m certainly not taking a fictional show’s word on climate science. Second of all, if floods, hurricanes, lack of crops, and uninhabitable temperatures in disaster movies weren’t enough to convince people climate change is a threat, what makes the show think adding smallpox to the mix will help? Finally, just like their attention on “fake news,” the refugee crisis, and the non-essential government employee, this plot only shows how drastically out-of-touch with reality Madam Secretary continues to be.

The show spends the rest of the episode diving into methods to stop the melting process in Russia despite their current hostile relationship with the United States. After sending in their proposition to reintroduce a wooly mammoth-like species to the permafrost areas (I’m being serious), we’re left wondering just how much more alarmist they can be in portraying the effects of global warming to us science-intolerant knuckle-draggers. I expect the next time around might include locusts.

CW’s ‘Supergirl’ Unveils New Trump-like Villain, Calls Global Warming Skeptics ‘Morons’

CW’s Supergirl has now had almost five extra months to come to terms with the Trump Presidency. At this point, the show could either move on like the rest of the country or double down in disgrace. Unfortunately, the October 9 premiere “Girl of Steel” doubled down and doesn’t show any signs of letting up its liberal, anti-Trump slant.

Let’s start with the moderate stuff and work our way up the ladder. Since the lackluster season two finale, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) became Press Secretary to female President Olivia Marsdin (Lynda Carter), which is sadly not the most unbelievable thing we have to take in this episode. Right off the bat, she answers a question about whether the president believes in climate change.

Cat: Okay, Carl.

Carl: Does President Marsdin believe climate change is real?

Cat: Uh, yes. Yes, Carl. As a matter of fact, she does. She also believes that two plus two equals four and the Earth is round because the President is not a moron. Any third grader knows that global warming is the biggest threat of our time. And I’m happy to report that the intellectual capacity of our President is not inferior to that of an eight-year-old. Next question.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they wanted to appear on Newsbusters this week. And what does this remark on climate change have to do with the plot? Absolutely nothing. It’s just yet another excuse for the show to remind us how enlightened they are when it comes to “science.” Forgive me for thinking that people who call those who have the slightest doubt about the religion of climatology names are the actual eight-year-olds.

However, that’s nothing compared to the actual plot of the episode which features its own Trump-like villain. Here we meet Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar), originally a media mogul in the DC comics, who is now a…real estate mogul. Not just any real estate mogul, mind you, but one that seems to play golf, have sexist behaviors, and make pointed remarks about the media.

Let’s take this scene, for example, after he purchases the magazine company CatCo and is confronted by fellow business owner Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath).

Morgan: Lena, twice in my office in as many days. [Sing-song voice]People are gonna start talking.

Lena: Morgan, you have all the charisma of a Michael Douglas movie from the ’90s.

Morgan: You didn’t come all this way just to flatter me, did you?

Lena: I came because I have a proposition.

Morgan: Ooh, good. I do like propositions.

Lena: Now, you know I don’t agree with your waterfront development. But you are still the best developer in National City.

Morgan: Let me get you a drink before that compliment leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Lena: Your work is why I have invested in your portfolio and why I intend to invest more.

Morgan: Let me guess… You want me to stay away from Catco?

Lena: Oh, come on, Morgan. Catco isn’t good business for you and you know it. There’s a city out there that needs to be rebuilt. That’s what you’re good at. Focus on that.

Morgan: You know you can take the Luthor logo off your name, but people still aren’t gonna trust you. And that’s a really easy sentiment to reinforce once I have Catco’s editorial under my control. People love to believe what they read.

Lena: Using Catco to defame your enemies and promote your own agenda. That’s despicable.

Morgan: Oh, no. That’s good business.

Lena: I’ll see myself out. 

If that’s not enough for the show, the episode later reveals him to be personally behind an attack on the city just to boost his new development. I know from experience that Supergirl has been far from subtle when it comes to their social justice issues, but this guy might already be clinching the top liberal bias instance of the third season. The other moments we could have just accepted them and move on, but now we have an evil, capitalist, Trump-like punching bag for several more episodes.

I’m sure the writers feel smug about portraying a Trump figure as the bad guy, but the downside is that real life doesn’t work that way. The moment the episode is done Trump will still be president, and he will be president for long after this season ends. With propaganda like this, you can count on it.
