Vegan Protests and Violence By James Reed

     Vegan protesters stormed, well, strolled into a pizza joint in Brighton UK, and one oldish angry guy punched a female protester in the face. I am no lover of fine vegan food, the fibre giving me terrible flatulence, but this act of violence must be condemned, and rejected. But that is not my main concern. I was interested to read about other UK protests where the vegans seemed to break the law, but, surprise, surprise, nothing happened:

“Brighton has seen a number of protests in restaurants led by Direct Action Everywhere, which has seen members in court because of their demonstrations. They previously raided a McDonald's wearing pig and chicken masks before spraying fake blood on the floor. A Sussex Police spokesman said: 'Incidents involving animal rights activists at several restaurants in Brighton on Sunday evening, in which protesters with loud hailers chanted slogans at diners, have been reported to police. 'It was alleged that at one establishment a protester was punched by a customer, and at another activists were thrown to the ground. 'Several activists have chained themselves to the exterior of Brighton town hall. 'Police are investigating and are meanwhile monitoring the situation. 'Currently no arrests have been made but if criminal acts are found to have taken place, appropriate action will be taken.'”

Greentopia By Viv Forbes


    

They planned the Land of Make Believe. They wanted water without building dams, cheap reliable electricity without burning coal or gas, transport without using petrol or diesel, food without farmers or fishermen, employment without factories, and metals and motor fuels without refineries. Their countryside was uglified by paddocks of magic mirrors, forests of whirling bird slicers and spider-webs of access tracks and power lines that delivered abundant electricity when it was least needed. But the taps went dry, cattle and crops died, lights went out, seafood and rice came from Vietnam, metals were smelted and refined in China, trains were built in India, cars and trucks came from Japan, motors fuels were imported from South East Asia, and savings fled to Zurich. Welcome to Green Australia.

Greta, Now be a Good Girl and Listen to the Kind Billionaire! By James Reed

     Remember the old saying,” children should be seen, but not heard.” When did that die out? Surely in the early post WWII era, since the 1960s brats did not listen or shut up. Neither is this generation, Z, the last one, with any luck (i.e. Biblical Second Coming).
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7515969/Greta-Thunberg-surrendered-completely-catastrophism-says-billionaire-fashion-CEO.html

“French business magnate Bernard Arnault, 70, has described climate activist Greta Thunberg as 'demoralising for young people'. The billionaire Chief Executive of LVMH made the comments while speaking at his luxury giant LVMH's sustainability event earlier this week. Arnault said that while Greta was a 'dynamic young girl,' she has 'surrendered completely to catastrophism.' Arnault's giant group boasts Fendi, Christian Dior and Givenchy among its brands. 'I find that her views are demoralising for young people,' the fashion CEO continued. 'I prefer positive solutions that allow us to get towards a more optimistic position.' He added that there was a positive side to economic growth, pointing out that it had helped to create jobs and lift many people from poverty. 'If we don't want to go backwards, we still need growth,' he said.”

Time to Hear from Sensible Adults By Viv Forbes

     3 October 2019, Climate alarm has fractured western societies into four main groups – the Silent Majority, the Red Green-ants, the Noisy Street Children, and the Wise Elders.

     The Silent Majority do the work of the nation. They pay the nation’s bills and taxes and only make their presence felt at election time. They despise most career politicians but many fear reprisals from Big Government or Big Business should they be seen speaking out. But when sufficiently aroused they toss out the chicken-littles and turn to leaders like Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro and Boris Johnson.

Ha! Has! Getting it Wrong, Wrong, Wrong On Ocean Warming By James Reed

     I am pleased to have found, while reading Amerika.org a fantastic site, Retraction Watch.com, where we can follow big time boo-boos in scientific papers. I went hunting for dirt on climate change, something that makes the climate of my blood boil. Here, enjoy:
  https://retractionwatch.com/2019/09/25/nature-paper-on-ocean-warming-retracted/

Nature is retracting a 2018 paper which found that the oceans are warming much faster than predicted by previous models of climate change. The article, “Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition,” appeared at last October but quickly drew the attention of an influential critic who said the analysis was flawed. The authors agreed, and within three weeks the paper received the following update: We would like to alert readers that the authors have informed us of errors in the paper. An implication of the errors is that the uncertainties in ocean heat content are substantially underestimated. We are working with the authors to establish the quantitative impact of the errors on the published results, at which point in time we will provide a further update. At the time, Ralph Keeling, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif., and a co-author of the article, was gracious about the error. The San Diego Tribune quoted the researcher saying: When we were confronted with his insight it became immediately clear there was an issue there. We’re grateful to have it be pointed out quickly so that we could correct it quickly. Now, nearly more than 10 months later, Nature is pulling the plug on the article. As the retraction notice states, the journal came to feel that the uncertainties in the analysis were too significant to let the paper stand:

Tearing Holes in the Fabric of Reality? How Could That Not be Good? By Brian Simpson

     We all know that science gets it right all of the time, that the first atomic bombs did not ignite all the hydrogen, and the atomic colliders did not create black holes destroying the earth. Thus, play God and push on to the final frontier and literally tear holes in the fabric of reality. If the Dr Frankenstein’s did not kill us before, we must have a blank cheque to do anything, that their sick mathematical minds can cook up:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/physicists-are-creating-lasers-powerful-enough-rip-holes-fabric-reality

“Earlier this month, the physics journal Physical Review Letters published a paper discussing how new technology could allow a high-velocity laser to pierce “through [the] fabric of the Universe.” The trick, according to a researcher at the Université Paris-Saclay, is to anchor and focus the laser using a mirror made of plasma. In an analysis written for Ars Technica, physicist and writer Chris Lee broke down the logistical hurdles the new technique could overcome. By consolidating a 5-10 petawatt laser for around 5-5000 joules of energy for somewhere between a picosecond or femtosecond, scientists can muster an intensity of 1022W/cm2, which is when a plasma state kicks in and creates a conductive gas of excited particles whose electrons reflect light. Other laser experiments have concentrated as much as 200 petawatts of power on a target for less than a trillionth of a second. Using a plasma mirror, scientists can reach 1029W/cm2 and accelerate electrons to the point where they will be “generating real charges from the apparent nothingness of empty space.” “The way the mirror oscillates also means that the light frequencies are all multiples of each other,” writes Chris Lee. “The mirror reflects all these colors together, and they add up to a pulse that is even shorter in time. In fact, the pulse goes from being 20fs in duration to 0.1fs (a femtosecond is 10-15s). This by itself increases the intensity by a factor of 100. The shorter wavelength also means that the light focuses to a smaller spot. “The end result is a factor of 1,000 higher intensity for the same input laser and a simple mirror swap.”

Wind Turbine Pollution! Take That Green Saint Greta Thunberg! By James Reed

     I don’t like picking on children, but climate change activist Greta Thunberg is different, since, following her UN rave, she picks on adults. So, let’s go. First, renewables, yes, but even the sacred wind turbines take massive quantities of resources to make, and break down, getting dumped:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-09-27-non-recyclable-wind-turbine-blades-buried-in-landfill.html

“Hundreds of giant windmill blades are being shipped to a landfill in Wyoming to be buried because they simply can’t be recycled. (Article by Adan Salazar republished from Infowars.com) Local media reports several wind farms in the state are sending over 900 un-reusable blades to the Casper Regional Landfill to be buried. While nearly 90 percent of old or decommissioned wind turbines, like the motor housing, can be refurbished or at least crushed, fiberglass windmill blades present a problem due to their size and strength. “Our crushing equipment is not big enough to crush them,” a landfill representative told NPR. Prior to burying the cumbersome, sometimes nearly 300-foot long blades, the landfill has to cut them up into smaller pieces onsite and stack them in order to save space during transportation. To make matters worse, the blades aren’t exactly compostable. The Casper Solid Waste Manager tells Wyoming News Now they’ll take hundreds of years to biodegrade. “So Casper happens to be, I think it is, the biggest landfill facility in the state of Wyoming. These blades are really big, and they take up a lot of airspace, and our unlined area is very, very large, and it’s going to last hundreds of years.” As if that’s not bad enough, NPR reports researchers estimate the US will soon have to grapple with over 720,000 tons of blades over the next 20 years, “a figure that doesn’t include newer, taller higher-capacity versions.” So much for saving the environment.”

The Attack of the 5 G Drones By Brian Simpson

     I saw the terrible Spider-man movie Far from Home, which basically had an evil guy use drone technology, based in space, to shoot up places. Now it seems the same idea is being used in reality, so it is your fault, Spidey, and you deserved to have your secret identity exposed at the end of the movie, which introduces the “Secret War” theme, just to spoil the movie:
  https://www.wakingtimes.com/2019/08/22/giant-5g-drones-are-being-planned-for-the-skies-over-hawaii-then-the-world/

“Massive football field sized drones flying in the stratosphere, beaming down toxic 5G radiation into the earth, into the ocean, into our homes, into our bodies. Sounds like something out of a science fiction nightmare. But if the sponsors of the HAWK30 program, tech giant SoftBank of Japan, defense contractor AeroVironment of California and Alphabet, the parent company of Google, have their way that nightmare will become a reality this fall for some Hawai’i residents and eventually for much of the world’s population. The HAWK30 program, proposed by the Research Corporation of the University of Hawai’i(RCUH), wants to use the Hawaiian island of Lana’i in Maui county as a launch pad for unmanned drones, HAPS (high altitude platform stations) flying at 65,000 to 80,000 feet carrying wireless communications relays and transmitting 5G signals into air, land and sea in a three-phase program. In the final phase of the surreal plan, tiny Lana’i island becomes a drone manufacturing plant, launch pad and mission control center to fly massive drones throughout the equatorial belt.”

Green Zombie Marxism By James Reed

     I have been discussing the social construction, by the elites of Climate change teenage activist, Greta Thunberg, and so have others, probably doing a better job than me. Here the following author nails it fair and square, seeing her creation as the latest Marxist zombie manifestation:
  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2019/09/greta-thunberg-is-latest-manifestation.html#more

“Why is Greta even a thing, and why do certain powerful people want to make her such a thing? I think what we are seeing here is part of a long-running pattern that has infested Western societies for nearly a century now, namely the pattern of a Leftist elite and its increasingly absurd search for what is known as "The Revolutionary Class." This concept of "The Revolutionary Class," by the way, is yet more evidence of the deeply bourgeois nature of Marxism, as it simply means finding someone to outsource all the dirty work of the revolution to. Yes, "The Revolutionary Class" is actually "The Revolutionary under-Class." As is well known, the revolutionary ideology of Marxism never succeeded because it failed to connect to its first-choice "Revolutionary Class," namely the industrial proletariat. Marx's central idea was that the proles would become radicalised enough to allow one group of elite Whites (him and his chums) to displace another group of elite Whites. Sadly for the followers of the Marxist cult, this only happened in freak conditions like WWI-period Russia, with mass starvation and military defeat, or weird power vacuums like post-WWII China, after the Japanese army had spent more than a decade hammering away at the Nationalist government. But back to the main point, which is this: The pattern of the bourgeois Zombie Left constantly seeking a "Revolutionary under-Class" to do its dirty work and help it accrue power helps us to understand exactly what the phenomenon of Greta Thunberg and the "Extinction Revolution" is.

A Climate Change Temper Tantrum By James Reed

     This is pretty good theatre, theatre of the absurd, that is. Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg was at the UN telling off all of the adults for creating modern civilisation and all of its comforts: “This is all wrong...You all come to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words—and yet, I'm one of the lucky ones.”  Whoooaha! I think this young lady has “issues.” And she needs to be getting some help, not telling the world how to act. But, that is how clown world is run today.

No Meat, We are British (No Cars Either) By Richard Miller

     Here is the future rushing up to destroy us. Will the sheeple let it happen yet again? Maybe “sheeple” is not a good word for them, since sheep don’t eat meat, but soon, none of us will either:
  https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/eating-meat-illegal-vegans-michael-mansfield-qc-labour-conference-a9115656.html?utm_source=amerika.org

“Eating meat could become illegal due to the ecological damage it does to the planet, a top British barrister has said. Michael Mansfield QC believes the government should introduce tighter legislation to make activities which destroy the natural world illegal – and in the future this could even include banning the consumption of meat. “There are plenty of things that were once commonplace that are now illegal such as smoking inside,” said Mr Mansfield, who will present his ideas at the Labour party conference on Monday. “We know that the top 3,000 companies in the world are responsible for more than £1.5tn worth of damage to the environment with meat and dairy production high on the list. We know that because the UN has told us so. “I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous to think that one day it will become illegal,” he said. Currently 25 per cent of global emissions come from agriculture, with livestock contributing to 80 per cent of that. Industrial agriculture relies on fossil fuels to create fertilisers and machinery to harvest crops and transport animals. Farmed animals also produce half of the world’s methane emissions.

Not Even the Sky is the Limit to Their Greed! By Brian Simpson

     The race is on for the mega-capitalists to eat up the rest of the universe, creating the cosmic space economy, and the empire of Star Wars:
  https://theconversation.com/india-has-it-right-nations-either-aim-for-the-moon-or-get-left-behind-in-the-space-economy-121497

“In 2018 382 objects were launched into space. By 2040 it might easily be double that, with companies like Amazon planning “constellations”, composed of thousands of satellites, to provide telecommunication services.
The satellite business is just a start. The next big prize will be technology for “in-situ resource utilisation” – using materials from space for space operations. One example is extracting water from the Moon (which could also be split to provide oxygen and hydrogen-based rocket fuel). NASA’s administrator, Jim Bridenstine, has suggested Australian agencies and companies could play a key role in this. All up, the potential gains from a slice of the space economy are huge. It is estimated the space economy could grow from about US$350 billion now to more than US$1 trillion (and as possibly as much US$2,700 billion) in 2040.”

Who Funds Greta Thunberg? By Bruce Bennett

     With the “success’ of the climate strike across the world, as a media attention grabber, the focus should be on the teenage leader of the movement, Greta Thunberg. Does she raise funds by selling tasty vegan food, made by elves? No, she is funded by George Soros et al.:

Harry Potter and Markle the Sparkle, Save the Planet in Their Great African Adventure By Peter West

     Keeping up with the Pope and other trendies are our interracial Royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are flying to Africa, with even Markle’s hairdresser, to save the world from climate change:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/09/22/prince-harry-meghan-markle-flying-to-africa-with-climate-message/

“Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, make a long haul flight to Africa on Monday to spread their climate advocacy to a new audience. Baby Archie will join them on the 10-day visit along with a team of 13 assistants including a “social media officer” and a hairdresser for Markle. The Sussexes’ first tour as a family comes after the duke and duchess flew to Rome to watch Meghan’s close friend, fashion designer Misha Nonoo walk down the aisle with oil tycoon Michael Hess on Friday. Highlights of the latest trip will see the duke and duchess visit a township in Cape Town to tour a workshop supporting children and young girls, and visit another near Johannesburg where they will learn about a project tackling rising unemployment. Malawai, Botswana, and Angola are also on the itinerary. The past two months have been busy for the Royal pair, with them spotted at one stage taking four private jet flights in just 11 days. Their  seemingly constant air travel has not been without controversy. Last month a barefoot Duke of Sussex stood before an elite audience of business leaders and celebrities gathered at Google’s annual deluxe retreat in Sicily to warn immediate action is needed to avoid an approaching climate catastrophe. The Evening Standard reported Prince Harry, 34, is understood to have insisted the future of the planet is a humanitarian issue, not a political one, and the world must act to avoid disaster.”

Here Comes Another Mining Boom … and the Need to Take in a Billion Migrants Who Will Mine with Picks and Shovels! By James Reed

     I remember well when the mining boom was on some time back, and the government used this as an excuse to engage in basically open borders legal migration, as part of its program to dispossess the dispossessed majority, now minority. Well, that boom could be back:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7471843/More-20-000-mining-jobs-set-spring-Australia-five-years.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“More than 20,000 mining jobs will be available over the next five years as $40billion worth of infrastructure projects in Australia's are given the go ahead. A new report released on Tuesday by the Australian Resources and Energy Group [AMMA] announced thousands of jobs as electricians, electricians and geologists. The 'boom' of mining jobs could see tens and thousands of Australians raking in big bucks, with some occupations paying six-figure salaries. 'Australia's mining industry is facing new workforce demand at levels not seen since the previous investment and construction boom,' AMMA Chief Executive, Steve Knott AM, said. A forecast of available jobs includes 8,660 mining plant operators and 2,847 heavy diesel fitters. An estimated 4,180 engineers, technicians, geologists and other related roles are needed as well as 4,110 supervisors, administration and management jobs. At least 970 other trades such as electricians, mechanics and maintenance jobs are also forecasted.”

Canberra Does Know the Difference between Chinese Ownership and Investment By James Reed

“Sky News host Alan Jones says Canberra “doesn’t know the difference” between Chinese ownership and investment. The broadcaster said China owned 29 per cent of Australian foreign-owned farmland and “a lot of this happened while Morrison was treasurer”. “We love investment because our capital base is not big enough, but that's different from ownership," he said. "And when Chinese interests own our water, our coal, our dairy farms, our beef farms … we're entitled to ask where does this end and what's the agenda."

What the Environmentalists Have in Store for us By James Reed

Andrew Bolt on the Climate Change Fanatical Cult By James Reed

     The difference between me and Andrew Bolt, is that Andrew is a real journalist, while I am just a rank amateur, even though I have been writing for what, a century? No, not that long; maybe five years, perhaps 10, I don’t remember. Anyway, here are some great articles on the madness around the climate strike, involving the institutions I have a fanatical hatred for myself, the universities:

Running on Empty By James Reed

     Bad news with some regions looking to run out of water, not because of climate change, but natural variability, and government mismanagement:
  https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/sep/15/parts-of-regional-nsw-set-to-run-out-of-water-by-november

“Parts of regional New South Wales could run out of water as early as November with data showing the worst-case scenario for the state if there’s no rain or government intervention. The projections from NSW’s river operator and bulk water supplier WaterNSW show without significant rain the first towns to lose water supply will be Dubbo, Cobar, Nyngan and Narromine with the Macquarie River forecast to run dry by November. The Macquarie River experiences an average inflow of 1,448GL annually but in the past two years has seen just 97GL enter the river system, the data shows. It has been described as a “critical” situation by the NSW water minister, Melinda Pavey, who told reporters in Canberra on Sunday the government is doing “everything humanly possible” to make sure the state gets through this devastating drought. The NSW government has committed $130m for extra bores and pipelines to reduce water lost in transmission, she said, citing a pipeline to extend Tamworth’s water supply by 18 months and $30m for bores in Dubbo. Australia’s longest river, the Murray, has been severely affected with 901GL of water entering the system in the past 12 months compared with its annual average of 5000GL. The data shows that Menindee Lakes – which is a source of flows for the Lower Darling and is a vital fish nursery – received just six gigalitres of water in the past year. Its annual inflow average is 1,387GL. The lakes sit within the town of Menindee which experienced mass fish deaths along the Darling River last summer.”

Confess Your Sins Against the Gods of Climate Change! By James Reed

     Clown world is in full swing, and I write this piece as the climate strike by angry school kids, and even some so-called enlightened capitalists, who have let their workers out of their day cages to protest, is underway. As if some school kids and university students are going to change the growth economy. All it will do is create more hardship for the very people the Left were supposed to support, workers and unemployed, if anything is done at all. Wait … stop press … in the right of the screen a news item just popped up:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7484625/School-children-admit-dont-care-climate-change-just-want-day-off.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“A group of school children who attended the climate change protest have admitted they just wanted the day off of school. More than 50,000 people flooded Sydney's streets as they made their way to the Domain to take part in the protest, calling for governments and businesses to commit to a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2030. As the sea of people made their way to the event at midday on Friday, some school students on scooters could be seen heading in the opposite direction - appearing disinterested in the event. In the heart of the city police were spotted wrestling with a man holding a plastic bag of rubbish as protesting onlookers watched on in horror. One elderly woman was left sprawled on the ground in pain as officers arrested the man and dragged him away from the crowd punching and screaming. A group of 14-year-old boys straggling at the back of the crowd near the Domain told Daily Mail Australia they weren't interested in the protest. They said they were just happy to be out of the class room. One of the boys said they were going to go to Subway for lunch as they were hungry. When asked why they came out for the event one replied: 'I just wanted the day off school'. 'A lot of our friends said they were coming so we thought we should come too.'”
