Exorcist Don Antonio Mattatelli: “All natural disasters, such as hurricanes and earthquakes, demonstrate that the end of the world is coming It will not be the end of the world in general, but of this world yes. Natural phenomena so sudden and powerful shows that, there is no confidence in the future and we have come to an end of modernity”.
Flashback Gore: 'Every Night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of revelations' - (UK Guardian - 4 min. into video) - Excerpt: "Mother nature is making these points very persuasively. Every Night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of revelations. And people notice this, and they hear from from their parents and grandparents it didn't used to be this way. You know when their are record floods and record droughts and record wildfires and sea level rising when the streets of miami florida, some of them flooding during high tide, people can't fail to notice that."
Climate change has been blamed for a dizzying array of absurd woes, from the dwindling number of customers at Bulgarian brothels to the death of the Loch Ness monster. Most of us can see through these silly headlines, but it’s far harder to parse the more serious claims when they’re repeated in good faith by well-meaning campaigners.
Consider the recent assertion by Unicef’s Bangladesh head of mission that climate change leads to an increase in child marriages. Between 2011 and 2020 globally, more than 140 million girls under the age of 18 will become brides, leading to curtailed education and reduced lifetime earnings, more domestic violence, more deaths from complications due to pregnancy and increased mortality for the young brides’ children. By all accounts, child marriage must be taken seriously. In Bangladesh, nearly 75% of women between the ages of 20 and 49 reported that they were married before they turned 18, giving the country the second-highest rate of child marriage in the world. As the Unicef head tells it, climate change has been a major cause, as warmer weather has worsened the flooding, pushing people to the cities, leading to more child marriages. This entire string of logic is wrong. The frequency of extreme floods in Bangladesh has increased, it’s true, but studies show their magnitude and duration have in fact decreased. And Bangladesh is far better at adapting today than it was a generation ago. In 1974, a flood killed 29,000 people and cost 7.5% of the country’s gross domestic product. A slightly larger flood in 2004 killed 761 people and cost 3.3% of GDP.
Tony Heller: 'Throughout history, hate groups have looked for scapegoats to blame things on. In the 16th century progressive hate groups blamed bad weather on witches, and burned tens of thousands of witches at the stake. In the 1930’s and 1940’s progressives put millions of Jews in gas chambers as scapegoats for Germany’s problems, and now progressive hate groups blame the weather on people who resist their climate scam. They want to criminalize and prosecute free speech and scientific inquiry. Mark Hertsgaard says flooding in Texas and Bangladesh was caused by global warming skeptics. He says that people who resist the largest scam in history are murderers.'
Daniel Cohan, an associate professor of environmental engineering, tweeted that Harvey should be used as a discussion point for climate change issues, because it contributed to the hurricane in the same way that Islamic terrorism did to the terrorist attacks. He has since deleted the tweet. “Did we avoid discussing contributors to terrorism when recovering from 9/11,” Cohan wrote on Twitter Friday, referring to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. He was replying to a tweet from California congressional candidate Mike Levin suggesting it would be wrong to avoid linking climate change to the factors causing Harvey.
In a now deleted tweet, Eichenwald wrote, “I’m not a scientist. I used a climate change equation &, using sea surface temps, predicted Irma intensity growth & timing. 100% correct.” Well, one meteorologist, Ryan Maue, called BS on Eichenwald’s mathematics, as did other data crunchers from other outlets, including The Washington Post
Brad Johnson, formerly of Think Progress and currently with Climate Hawks, declared today: "Climate disaster response rules 1) save lives 2) global warming is here 3) put officials who reject science in jail." Johnson linked to an article demanding "climate change denial should be a crime."
Warmist Mark Hertsgaard in The Nation: "The victims of Hurricane Harvey have a murderer—and it’s not the storm...What makes this so infuriating is that it shouldn’t be happening. Experts have warned for decades that global warming would increase these sorts of weather extremes and that people would suffer and die if protective measures were not implemented."
"The first step toward justice is to call things by their true names. Murder is murder, whether the murderers admit it or not. Punish it as such, or we encourage more of the same."
"It is past time to call out Trump and all climate deniers for this crime against humanity. No more treating climate denial like an honest difference of opinion."
"When the president announced in June that he was withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord, I wrote in The Nation: 'To refuse to act against global warming is to condemn thousands of people to death and suffering today and millions more tomorrow. This is murder, even if Trump’s willful ignorance of climate science prevents him from seeing it.'"
"That judgment grows more apt with each passing day we don’t reverse course. Knowing what we know in 2017, expanding fossil-fuel production is like Big Tobacco continuing to addict people to its cancer sticks: technically legal but, in effect, premeditated murder."
