Life In The Dark Ages

ScreenHunter_181 Feb. 27 12.54

We have a government of people obsessed with controlling the climate by legislation or executive order. In the past, these people would have been openly ridiculed as lunatics.

Even if you believe Hansen’s bullshit, the ability of the US government to control global CO2 levels is so small as to be almost irrelevant.

    I agree with your assessment, Steven.

    We live in very interesting times, that George Orwell correctly forecast in 1946 when he was dying of tuberculosis.

    “To maintain the distinction between samurai and commoners, the government conducted raids called “sword hunts” or katanagari. Commoners discovered with swords, daggers or firearms would be put to death. Of course, this also discouraged peasant uprisings.”

    Real Science says “Even if you believe Hansen’s bullshit, the ability of the US government to control global CO2 levels is so small as to be almost irrelevant.”

    I agree, Steve, but your statement seems to concede the warmers’ point that CO2 matters. The geology evidence is clear that CO2 is irrelevant in temperature history. CO2 is a trailing indicator of temperature cycles in the oceans.

    I think you concur, but sometimes we all get lulled into using the language/constructs of the warmers because they flood the zone with illogical gunk.

    I’ve never understood why both Pielke Sr and Pielke Jr buy into the CO2 meme. They’re both bright, accomplished, and thoughtful – – until they talk about “de-carbonizing the economy”. Yikes! The best predictor of improvement in the human conditiion has been the per capita consumption of hydrocarbons.

    cheers

    The Senate has confirmed President Obama’s pick to run the U.S. Treasury.

    During his work at Citigroup, Jack Lew had invested heavily in funds in Ugland House while he worked as an investment banker at Citigroup during the 2008 financial meltdown.

    ” The unit he oversaw invested in a hedge fund “that bet on the housing market to collapse.”

    Ugland House is a building located in George Town, Cayman Islands Located on South Church Street, the building is the registered office address for 18,857 entities and has for years been linked to tax avoidance strategies. During his first presidential campaign, U.S. President Barack Obama referred to Ugland House as “either the biggest building in the world or the biggest tax scam in the world.
