Climate Change
Man-made climate change due to the "pollutant" carbon dioxide (CO2) will destroy civilization! We must take drastic measures to save the planet now! This has been the multi-decade international campaign of some scientists, Hollywood types, leftist politicians and the media, popularized by the 2006 documentary film with Al Gore, "An Inconvenient Truth". The upcoming 5th Assessment report [AR5] of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is being trumpeted as further proof (they are now 95% sure of man-made global warming). The Gray Area actually believes that humans are doing harm to the environment, but the facts don't support that climate change is affected by humans. This is not just from the 2009 "climategate" scandal, but a growing number of scientists also agree. This will come as heresy to the leftists who have built their belief systems or careers on this campaign, but it is nonetheless true - facts don't support the claim. The Global Warming Primer, Second Edition, by the NCPA provides counterpoints to the film's message. "The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas, exhaled at high concentrations by each of us, and a key component of the biosphere's life cycle. Plants do so much better with more CO2 that greenhouse operators often increase the CO2 concentrations by factors of three or four to get better growth. This is no surprise since plants and animals evolved when CO2 concentrations were about 10 times larger than they are today." The Earth has had cyclical weather patterns since its creation. Ice sheets covered and retreated around the globe four times. We are currently in the 5th warming cycle over the last 400,000 years, and it is the least severe, according to "The Big Picture" at There is scientific data ad-nausea-um on the subject of climate change at that site. So why the high volume messaging that man-made climate change exists - follow the money and the political advantage that comes from it. Government funding for academic research, growth of government bureaucracies, excuse for raising taxes, tax payer funded subsidies and a big lure for charitable donations. So, as you read the left and right positions on climate change below, remember, the truth is "petroleum saved the whales", "coal saved the forests" and "wealthier is healthier".

The 2024 election emergency

from The Gray Area:

The climate crisis continues to get panicked airtime in the legacy media and from left wing politicians around the world. Expect no 'deceleration' from either on this subject. It is the political emergency we are facing for the 2024 election cycle.

We all know that the 2024 Presidential election will both mirror 2020 and upgrade the lunacy. It was considered critical by the worldwide left that a Democrat be elected President of the United States in 2020, or their agenda would be set back decades. Now that they achieved that and re-established their agenda, a little taste of sin means that another Democrat President in 2024 is even more critical.

Expect all hell to break lose both before and after the election. Before the election, another round of emergencies and associated hysteria if everyone does not follow orders. After, if by some wild chance a Republican is elected President, expect prolonged protests & riots in the streets. Not an 'insurrection', of course, just citizens honest concern for the country and the planet.

Where does climate change fit in here - it is the supposed emergency, an existential crisis. What it is, is a political strategy! As Steven E Koonin points out in his book Unsettled, climate change is neither a hoax or a crisis.

Below are two posts from earlier this year reacting to climate catastrophes that were supposedly occurring in plain site. They fit into and shed light on today's discussion very well.

'endless climate absurdities'

'simplistic political narratives'
