A mental disorder of the gullible
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes CLIMATE ANXIETY. This contrivance is an affliction effecting two generations of children and adults who have been inundated with nonsense from people working hard to get a bit of attention, or support a big government agenda. It’s fear of an imaginary boogie man. It’s a fart without the methane.
First, if you are a victim of this completely made up problem, understand this. Nothing of what you’ve been told would happen “in ten years”, for the past 2 and a half decades, has ever come to pass. NOTHING. They made it up!
Further understand, CO2 is not a devil gas. It is not a toxin. Just because B. Hussein’s abusive EPA called it that doesn't make it so. CO2 is an important part of life in our world. It is good. We need it. It represents .04% of our atmosphere and sustains life. The only danger associated with CO2 today would be trying to intentionally suppress it.
BUT…according to the people who have instilled this panic in you, this magic gas is causing extreme weather. Follow any news feed about weather for the last 20 years and you’ll find no such trend. They tell you CO2 is causing drought and flood very selectively, and hot and cold.
The same charlatans who filled you with this baseless anxiety used to say the CO2 just caused heat. But since the actual data didn’t support that, they changed their marketing ploy with the term “climate change”.
Now every time a place gets wetter or drier, hotter or colder, stormier or more placid, the kook makers say See? That’s climate change. They are fixated with individual weather events to support their silly claims. But when you point out that these weather events are not part of any pattern they shriek, this is not about the weather!
But, of course it is. Weather is the ONLY way the climate they refer to manifests. All weather events are climate driven events. And there is no evidence of any patterns that support any REAL alarmism. And yet they keep pumping it into you and your kids.
The earliest children to be victimized by this agenda driven bullshit are now reaching their 40’s. All their lives they have been told the sky is falling, and we have scant months to reverse everything about the way we live or face imminent doom. But here we are, no closer to the end of all life than we were in 1950. In fact we’ve made incredible improvements in all areas environmental.
But, MJ, the oceans are RISING!!!!
Indeed they are, my frightened buttercup. And they have been since the peak of the previous Ice Age. They rise a minuscule amount every single year. But if you go to the beach in Sea Isle City today, it will look like it did when it was a fishing village and nobody from Philly owned a house there yet. Today, it’s just loads more fun.
Eventually, the town will no longer be there. But it won’t happen in your lifetime…or you kids’, or their kids’, or their kids’ lifetimes. Who knows, the houses back a block from the water may still be standing when the sun inevitably expands and devours the planet.
Shit, I just gave you something else to panic over. Relax. That’s not going to happen for at least 30 years. [wink] We’re good.
But…but…MJ, what about Lake Meade or the lake in Iraq that are disappearing!
Hmmm. You got me there. Those are REAL disasters! But they have absolutely ZERO to do with CO2 or “climate change” or “global warming”, or any other imaginary garbage.
The destruction of those lakes are the result of piss-poor planning and the daming of the rivers.
When we discovered a place in Souther California which was a sweet spot to live in, everybody and their brother wanted to go there. Hollywood made this worse. Commerce of all types took off. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough water there to support the growth.
To fix this, southern California just tapped into rivers hundreds of miles away and pumped the water in. It deserves mention that the process comes at a huge loss just to evaporation and aerosolization as the water travels west.
At no time for the next 90 years did anyone in California say we have to plan better. We have a finite water supply. Nope, they just kept right on building. Avocado farming, the worst natural sponge in existence also became popular. Now rivers in the west are indeed running dry. And we now have Vegas growing like a cancer and drawing on the same water supply!
The answer to this problem is not to be found in putting food in your gas tank or blanketing natural vistas with solar panels or windmills. The answer can be found by hitting this button.
Lake Sawa’s story is similar. For a while the Climate Change Cult said the lake was drying up because of the Devil Gas. Not true.
With the massive expansion of commerce and trade, thanks to the United State Navy, countries of little means suddenly became players. Food production and factories saw explosive growth. The waterways were barely able to maintain life in the region prior to development. The aquifers and fissures associated with Lake Sawa were drained off in short order. It was a matter of a few decades.
They too can exploit the dreaded rising oceans in much the same way as the previous link suggests. But if I know people and governments, they won’t. Neither will California.
Oh sure! But what about the glaciers?
Again, there is no denying that glaciers are retreating. Do you know what they’ve been doing since the last Ice Age? That’s right! Retreating. Some of the bigger ones we know of since recorded history have had periods of advance and retreat. But that was due to episodic weather. Mostly, the glaciers are doomed until the next Ice Age. I think that starts next summer.
The good news for 90% of civilization is we don’t have to rely on glaciers to survive.
I was reading a piece about climate anxiety in preparation for this piece. This one is from Yale. It’s written in support of the religion of climate change. And it mentions the “doomsday” glacier1. Ooooooo. Very scary.
Supposedly, there is a glacier in Antarctica the size of Florida that is going to fall in the ocean, get this, within five years! Or at least, it will melt away faster.
Well, we’ve heard stories about the poles before. Polar bears were supposed to be extinct by now. They are thriving. Ice sheets were going to disappear. They are bigger now than they were then. And as the clock ticks, people with publications like Yale Sustainability will torture us with crazy scenarios regarding the “doomsday” glacier.
Now, before you start to hyperventilate, consider the size of the oceans. Drop an ice cube in it waters the size of Florida, maybe a few hundred feet thick (I am assuming the ridiculous with that). It would look impressive. And it would definitely raise the total ocean level by and inch or so…MAYBE. The actual effect would have to be calculated because we would see no real evidence of it. And then, as the ice melts, it’s own volume will shrink. Crisis over.
The climate alarmists aren’t going to tell you the back end. They will grossly exaggerate the initial effects. They have grant money to collect from people who want you taking Valium to treat your climate anxiety. The same benefactors want you to believe that the climate is something they will “save you” from when you let them take over your lives.
If you want to fear something, FEAR THAT! Other wise, get on with your lives. The end is not nigh.

Like the Mann hockey stick graph, these people make things up to scare the weak-minded and indoctrinate kids. Don’t fall for it.
