Warming Panic is Nothing But Marxist Garbage

‘Imbeciles…moronic stuff’: Physicist Unleashes on European Green Deal’s as a ‘standard Marxist garbage plan’ – ‘Insane suicidal goal of net-zero emissions’

The truth that warmists continue to dodge

Activists are exploiting these terrible bushfires to whip up an astonishing fear of man-made global warming and hatred of sceptics like me. But know what makes me sure, even after this fiery devastation, that the global warming menace is exaggerated? It’s warmist scientist Andy Pitman, who has once again confirmed exactly what I’ve been saying. How horrified he’ll be to hear it.

You may remember Professor Pitman, the director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. He last year was recorded admitting to fellow warmists that droughts — like this severe one that’s fed the fires — are NOT caused by global warming.

“As far as the climate scientists know there is no link between climate change and drought,” he said.

“There is no reason a priori why climate change should make the landscape more arid.”

Indeed, despite the drought, Australia’s rainfall over the century has increased, not fallen.

Pitman and the ABC were naturally mortified when I and others started to quote him. Pitman is now furious that former prime minister Tony Abbott last week quoted his admission, too, in The Australian.

But in his anger, Pitman let slip a fact that sceptics like me have tried for years to point out.

Pitman complained that “Abbott quotes me on drought … when in fact for 15 years I have been warning that the risk of fires is increasing as a consequence of climate change”.

That’s because, he said, the extra carbon dioxide we emit is actually plant food that causes “greening”, meaning we get more leaves and even trees to burn in a drought.

But Pitman has been too honest. Most warmists have dodged this truth, because it undermines their fear campaign.

You see, it’s actually sceptics like me who have for years argued that global warming is greening the planet, and that this is, overall, a good thing.

As renowned physicist Freeman Dyson says: “The whole earth is growing greener as a result of carbon dioxide, so it’s increasing agricultural yields, it’s increasing the forests and it’s increasing growth in the biological world.”

NASA has found that an area about twice the size of the continental United States got greener between 1982 and 2009. This helps to explain why world grain crops keep setting new records.

But wait! A greener planet. Bigger crops. Fewer cyclones, too. Is this really something we want to stop?

This goes to the key question that sceptics like me keep asking.

We don’t deny the planet has warmed. We instead question whether the warming we’re seeing — less than predicted — is all bad.

We particularly question whether it’s smart to spend billions or even trillions to cut emissions in a largely symbolic attempt to “stop” all this.

Of course, some warmists will say: look at these deadly fires! Don’t they prove global warming is deadly?

In fact, tragic as they’ve been, they are far from our worst, measured either by deaths or area burnt.

What’s more, our bush this summer was dried out by a drought that was caused primarily not by global warming but by a natural and regular change in ocean patterns called the Indian Ocean Dipole.

When that dipole pushes warmer water in the Indian Ocean east to Australia, we get rain; when it replaces that with cooler water, we get drought.

Last December the Bureau of Meteorology warned the dipole had pushed so much cool water our way that we get no real rain until April. We’d get no rain to stop the fires.

Well, the bureau was wrong. The dipole suddenly decayed a couple of weeks ago, and we’ve since had lots of rain over eastern Australia, with more to come this week.

So, thanks to Pitman, the sceptics’ case is even clearer.

Do we really want to spend a fortune to slash our emissions in a largely futile attempt to “stop” a warming that isn’t anything as dangerous as we’re told?

Or would it be far cheaper and infinitely more effective to finally do all the fuel reduction burns needed to keep down the fuel loads in our forests?

After all, even Pitman is blaming extra fuel loads for the intensity of the flames.

Yet Victoria, for one, has over the past five years burnt only half the area recommended by the royal commission into the shocking 2009 fires that killed 172 people — four times more than died in this summer’s fires.

But that’s one more topic warmists hate. Reason is their enemy, and only fear is their friend.

FACT CHECKING ABC FACT-CHECK

Read it n weep into your tofu breakfast alarmists

No photo description available.

THE CLAIM : ABC Fact-Check asserts that;

‘’Social media has been rife with claims that the majority of the fires have been deliberately lit. A number of prominent politicians and public figures have also suggested that arson, not climate change, is the main cause.’’

https://www.abc.net.au/…/is-arson-mostly-to-blame-…/11865724

THE EVIDENCE :

It wasn’t ‘social media’ that first made these claims, it was the ABC themselves. Back in the 22nd September last under headline; ‘Bushfires Deliberately lit by cunning, versatile criminals expert warns’.

The ABC article quotes Dr. Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson;

‘’the great majority of bushfires are deliberately lit by “cunning, furtive and versatile criminals. About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson. The remainder are usually due to reckless fire lighting or even just children playing with fire.’’

“The more dangerous fire bugs will come out on the high fire danger days … they’re cunning, they know where to light and they know how to light a fire.”

The ABC article them listed a few recent fires in Queensland;

* Taskforce Overcross, which was set up by police this month, found 23 bushfires were thought to have been deliberately or carelessly lit, with action taken against 21 juveniles and nine adults.

* The bushfire in the Gold Coast hinterland that destroyed 11 properties and the historic Binna Burra Lodge is still under investigation.

* Two teenagers were charged over the Peregian Springs blaze and there have also been “suspicious” fires at Geebung on Brisbane’s northside, Pimpama on the northern Gold Coast and in central Queensland.

* Backpackers who accidentally started the Stanthorpe and Applethorpe fires on the Granite Belt will not be charged.

* Police dealt with a 12-year-old boy under the Youth Justice Act, over a deliberately lit fire that destroyed bushland in Logan and two 14-year-old girls were also questioned over a bushfire that came close to homes at Ormeau on the north Gold Coast.

Another article published by the SMH on the 18th November titled, ‘Arson, Mischief And Recklessness : 87% of fires are man-made’ noted;

‘’There are, on average, 62,000 fires in Australia every year. Only a very small number strike far from populated areas and satellite studies tell us that lightning is responsible for only 13 per cent. Not so the current fires threatening to engulf Queensland and NSW. There were no lightning strikes on most of the days when the fires first started in September. Although there have been since, these fires – joining up to create a new form of mega-fire – are almost all man-made.’’

https://www.smh.com.au/…/arson-mischief-and-recklessness-87…

THE VERDICT : ABC’s Fact Check’s attempts to play down the number of deliberately lit bushfires, and imply ‘climate change’ is the cause, simply doesn’t stack up.

    NO, THEY’RE NOT IMBECILES – THEY’RE

    “STUPID LIKE A FOX!”

    😉

    HYPOCRITES’ SUBJECTIVE DOUBLE STANDARDS ALWAYS SEEM INSANELY STUPID WHEN CONSIDERED AS OBJECTIVE TRUTH, BUT MAKE PERFECT SENSE TO SELFISH CRIMINALS, BECAUSE THEIR FRAUD MOTTO IS ALWAYS THUS:

    “THERE’S NO MONEY IN SOLUTIONS, SO PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY – AGAIN!”

    What it REALLY means to leftists, is:

    See? Now it makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
