'If their crusade succeeds, cars, meat, and seaside holidays will be for the rich, just as they were a hundred years ago'
Alexander Tomský: "Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the communist empire, the West has been pushing two ideologies...One proposes to build a new hierarchy of social and societal justice (equality), multiracial and multigender (LGBTQ+) minorities. The majority, silenced and intimidated by political correctness and egalitarian legislation, will hopefully sooner or later reject the new political religion; accusations of transphobia, innate white racism, and the enforcement of consent that there are no substantive differences between men and women are not sustainable in the long run.
The latter ideology, which has also found a home in the European Union, will have an economic impact. For the first time since its foundation, the Union has an agenda to impoverish Europeans, and it makes no secret of it. According to The Economist, which quotes enthusiastic Eurocrats, the "Green Deal" is nothing less than a painful revolution that will fundamentally change the lifestyles of Europeans, securing the EU's place in the world (presumably an honourable one) and purpose for a generation. ...
However, the energy and climate revolution promoted here last week by EU Vice-President Frans Timmermans is a truly insane and costly road to nowhere in economic terms, an "oo-topos", as the ancient Greeks used to call an unworkable utopia. Rebuilding the power grid, replacing gas boilers and cookers, producing green electricity for all vehicles simply cannot be done. ... the Puritans of the Green Deal intend above all to reduce the consumption, rampant consumerism, and free lifestyle of Europeans. If they really believed we would be baked in twenty years' time, they would be promoting nuclear power stations. If their crusade succeeds, cars, meat, and seaside holidays will be for the rich, just as they were a hundred years ago.
Klaus: "That this package can do any good for the planet is something only green activists, only the advocates of the utterly unsustainable doctrine of climate alarmism, can think. Only people who believe in an immediate linear or even exponential relationship between the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and the average global temperature. I am not one of these deluded individuals who have managed to garner such absurd media coverage. Man's role in the evolution of global temperatures over the long term is completely negligible. Moreover, CO2 has already played its potential role in influencing temperatures. The intention of carbon neutrality is an anti-human policy. It has almost no connection to temperature."
Paul Homewood: "It is absolutely clear that the number of strong tornadoes has declined since the 1970s. Alarmingly, however, this page has been 'disappeared', and the link now comes up with this:
Fortunately Wayback still has a copy of the original web page, and I also have it on file. It is blindingly apparent that NOAA found their original assessment far too inconvenient, something that should be kept out of the public domain at all cost."
Climate chauses wind speeds to decrease...Except when climate change causes wind speeds to increase...
Claim: Atmosphere expert Professor Paul Williams, of the University of Reading, told the Financial Times that winds have ‘generally weakened over land over the past few decades’. He said one explanation for plummeting wind speeds could be ‘human-related climate change’, that would see poles warming ‘faster than tropics in lower atmosphere’ areas. Prof Williams said: ‘This would have the effect of weakening the mid-latitude north-south temperature difference and consequently reducing the thermal wind at low altitudes.’
