Scientist William Briggs reacts Planned Parenthood claim: The most appalling announcement came from Planned “We Can Get Baby Hearts For You Cheap” Parenthood. They tweeted, “The climate crisis’ negative impact on the environment could have devastating effects on people’s reproductive health. #ClimateMarch.” “Reproductive health” is an evil euphemism for killing the lives inside would-be mothers. And here PP is implying the climate “crisis” will slow the rate of this killing.
Gore Effect: The threat of a major snowstorm is already putting Denver-area climate marches on ice. With the Washington Postreporting on how the “sweltering heat” in our nation’s capital is providing a relevant backdrop for the “People’s Climate March” tomorrow, the foot of snow expected in Colorado tomorrow has already postponed one of the several planned protests in the state...But one out of the twelve protests in Colorado has already been postponed due to an impending snowstorm. The National Weather Service’s winter storm warning projects six to 12 inches of snow, but there is potential for up to two feet in the Denver Metro Area.
... In December, a small group of Colorado activists protesting global warming were similarly met with extreme cold.
Hollywood's Laurie David, the Crying Activist & producer of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth": "After the election, it took me two weeks to just stop crying. I was just anticipating what was to come and what has come was worse than what I was crying about," David told The Hollywood Reporter. "We lived through George Bush, we lived through Newt Gingrich, but that is nothing compared to what is happening." With two national marches planned over the next seven days - the Science March on Saturday and the People's Climate March a week later - David is back in action and renewing her efforts.
Another climate imponderable: Global warming will cause increase in exercise, but exercise increases global
UK Times Flashback 2007: Exercise Causes Global Warming - Walking to the Shops ‘Damages Planet More Than Going By Car' - "Walking does more than driving to cause global warming, a leading environmentalist has calculated. Food production is now so energy-intensive that more carbon is emitted providing a person with enough calories to walk to the shops than a car would emit over the same distance. The climate could benefit if people avoided exercise, ate less and became couch potatoes. Provided, of course, they remembered to switch off the TV rather than leaving it on standby..."The troubling fact is that taking a lot of exercise and then eating a bit more food is not good for the global atmosphere. Eating less and driving to save energy would be better."
Science says so: Global warming will make you exercise more in 2099!
Journal Nature study: "We combine our historical estimates with output from 21 climate models and project the possible physical activity effects of future climatic changes by 2050 and 2099. Our projection indicates that warming over the course of this century may increase net recreational physical activity in the United States. Activity may increase most during the winter in northern states and decline most during the summer in southern states."
"Here we conduct an empirical investigation of the relationship between meteorological conditions, physical activity and future climate change."
