The Summa Contra Gentiles sequence will return next and not this week as announced last week. Why? Because I forgot the zombies were going to take to the streets—again. Like last week, this post will remain on top through tomorrow (new post Monday). Stay tuned for updates.
Stream: Raw Emotion, Not Science, on Display at People’s Climate March
…and the worst are full of passionate intensity.
Madness. Last week came March for Science spokesmodel Bill Nye and his perversions passing for “science”, and now comes shifty George Soros with his tens of millions injected into the populace to stir up heated feelings of “science”.
We resist, they say. We build, they claim. We rise, they threaten.
These declarations are from the homepage of the People’s Climate March, as brave and as forthright as any communist slogan.
Did they say climate march? Not quite. Instead, a mob which gathered for, in their words, “climate, jobs, and justice”. Jobs? Justice?
What happened, you might ask, to global warming? Forgotten. Well, it’s impolite to mention it because, of course, it has gone missing. The planet’s top scientists, having spent billions in the search, are more than a little embarrassed about not being able to find it. It’s gauche to mention it, so let’s leave them in peace and maybe, at long last, and after spending a few billion more, they’ll surprise us all.
Let’s instead talk about these marchers. Why do they say they “rise”? Well, they want to “Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers.”
Global warming has been attacking immigrants?
They want to “Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.”
Global warming is preventing people from unionizing?
They want to “Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all, not an economy that feeds the machinery of war.”
Global warming feeds the machinery of war?
“We needed a mass mobilization to stand up against Trump’s attacks on our climate and communities and fight for a new economy that works for people and planet.”
Donald Trump has attacked the climate?
Why? Why are they there? A goodly proportion of the agitated could not tell you why the sky is blue. I’d bet a significant fraction wouldn’t know whether the sun orbits around the earth or whether it’s other way around. Fewer than 5% could describe the Coriolis force. And I would wager that nearly none, maybe even zero, could discourse about the limitations and error potential of cloud parameterization schemes.
It’s a burden, and we’re sick of it, but click on over to read why we should be sick of it.
Update HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

There was a march? Who knew. Guess the one in Colorado got snowed out. Didn’t even know there was one. I suppose I should read those OFA emails I get. Sigh.
He he! Climate change zombies!
Everybody knows the sky is blue because the atmosphere scatters blue light about 10 times more than it scatters red light. That’s why you have those brilliant red sunrises and sunsets, because all the blue light has been scattered.
Google Rayleigh scattering.
I celebrated Earth Day 2017 by reading this article, and following links there-from:
including “Deutsche Physik”, “Cosmic ice”, “Lysenkoism”, etc. (I might have followed the SA link from Brigg’s blog, I don’t remember; I certainly didn’t find it from SA directly – I long ago abandoned them due to their insufferable preachiness and their perceived bias.)
In the current CAGW debate, I found the parallels obvious, in terms of which side is trying to silence the other for political reasons. It wouldn’t surprise me if the CAGW folks read the same material and reverse the parallels. Readers will have to decide for themselves who the “deniers” are in this latest reenactment.
Is the sky actually blue? I bet if you asked a hundred climate scientists that question, you’d be hard pressed to get 97% agreement on the answer.
