I have heard many people say "We have proven that climate change is man made so we must do something!" This is usually followed by cheers and applause. Haha. Why do people believe this?

If it's us, we can do something to stop it.

I always ask the question "What is the ideal temperature of the Earth?" No one has an answer. If there is an ideal temperature then we should be able to say why it is ideal. What is the goal? If we can reach this goal how will the economy and biodiversity be affected? Should we target lower ocean levels, or larger glaciers, or perhaps it should be warmer in temperate areas to grow food, or perhaps it is a temperature that supports bio-diversity.
Not more than c. 2º than now. The CO2 ppm level that will trigger that increase has been identified, and we are running over it now.
Keep the temp down, and everything else is taken care of. Don't, and there's a domino effect.
Stopping global warming will entail that some bastards don't get to make shitloads of money the way they used to. Other folks can make money with the changes. Not stopping GW will fuck the economy in epic unimaginable ways.
GW is already leading to loss of habitat, but so is population growth.
GW does not enhance agriculture; it disrupts weather patterns, especially floods & droughts. The net effect is loss of agriculture. Fisheries are also already being negatively impacted.

I also never hear what I would think is the most important story. If we know change is coming, let's predict the change and make mitigation plans. Some areas (such as coastal areas) are talking about mitigation.
What are the plans for massive shortages in food? For the relocation of the billions of people who live in coastal cities? Venice is talking about building dykes.
Not only are he Chinese are the biggest drivers of GW, they see its effects as an opportunity to overthrow the West.

People treat It like a nuclear holocaust.... like it will blow up the world. It will not blow up the world.
I think we've already established that AOC is complete fucking retard.
Instead it will make thousand of differences on a local level. It will simply be a local problem for everyone.
That's a good way of putting it. Still, some local problems will be utter disasters. The folks affected aren't just gonna sit there. They'll migrate, leading to the collapse of less seriously affected areas. Leading to violence. Leading to wars. Leading to me running out of 00 buck.

Also, it feels like most of the environmental organizations are just on a mission to advertise these days. They are not as focused on positive action.
Fear-mongering and urgent appeals work to a certain extent to generate donations. But it's not a good approach for general advocacy and persuasion.

I have given money to the Nature Conservancy for decades. I love the idea that they purchase important piece of land and then protect them from development. They are pushing for practical ways to improve the ecosystem and make larger contiguous uninhabited spaces. But lately... all they talk about is warming. They are spending too much time on this topic. They should be focused on acquiring land that will mitigate the effects of climate change.
Mission creep. Maybe they got taken over by SJWs.

Climate change.... as much as we bitch about it.... we can't stop it.... so what do we do now?
We can stop it, but we've been fiddling and diddling for too long, and now it will be much harder than just 10 years ago (thanks, obama!) We need binding carbon limits, and that can only be done with diplomacy &/or sanctions against the worst emitters. Those are the 'developing' nations, which leftists don't want to touch, so they pick on the lifestyles of ordinary Americans. The 'green economy' of obama was a complete scam -- a slush fund for his biggest donors who created fake companies to get gov't $$$. The 'New Green Deal' is fucking delusional.

First thing, we need to shift to renewable energy, and the gov't can drive that. FSS, we built Liberty Ships! We can do this. As a side bonus, then we can finally nuke Mecca.
Second, we need to thwart China, and maybe lop off a few of her grasping tentacles.
Then, we need to lower the goddamn population.

I stopped donating to the Nature Conservancy when all of they talked about was the rain forest. They seemed to lose focus on local conservation and go along with whatever the big "global" issues were. It may be that it increases overall contributions, but it looked to me like they were losing sight of the mission to work locally.

It wasn't as bad as I expected. Only one person brought the election up, with a dig at Queensland, but no one else took the bait.
KiwiInOz wrote: There are people out there who believe in cosmic balance and that justice will prevail. If Game of Thrones has taught us anything, it's that it aint so (and that tits and dragons sell). Perhaps Labor needed to have more tits and dragons in their superior policy offering.
Well, that's always the case. In 2007, I was certainly torn between the NBN proposal on one hand, and Internet Filtering on the other.
I'm a bit disappointed because the country does need to move on with its energy transformation and addressing food and water security wrt climate, but recognise that it will happen despite the conservatives best efforts. It will just be slower and potentially more painful than it needed to be.
I still feel there are too many mother hood statements in the way climate change is discussed, and very little actual real proposals. It's too much of this:



An example is banning plastic straws, which the local ACT government is investigating. The overwhelming majority of the plastic waste that ends up in the oceans comes from India and Africa, yet the tiny fraction that comes from the relatively well off and generally environmentally conscious Canberrans is what will save the Earth. That framing is obviously wrong, and certainly turns me off. I'm not even necessarily against the proposal. What annoys me is the way it is being pushed as something that must be done to save the environment when that is clearly not the case. It's the same elitism that rubbed Queenslanders the wrong way when Bob Brown decided to convoy through rural areas (and I like Bob Brown).

Another aspect is that no party saying that something major must be done about electricity generation and mining in order to solve climate change, is that it is all supply side. Not one of them has a population/immigration position to address the demand side (because that would be racist). Seems to me the best thing that could be done is to help Africa and India develop as fast as possible so they are wealthy enough to become environmentally conscious themselves. All the evidence suggests that environmental preservation becomes a higher priority once a population becomes wealthy enough that lower needs have been met.
But I am heartened because a) ScoMo has a chalice to his lips that was poisoned by him, his team, and an unrelenting future and b) Government Senator Arthur Sinodinos has put it out there that the Government needs to pull its head out of its posterior and position for a future with renewable energy etc.
I dunno. I agree there are uncertain future events on the horizon, but ScoMo has the remarkably free position to have won the election without making any real promises, or be beholden to anyone in the party. He's rid of Abbott who would have been the major havoc maker on the back bench. While I agree he will find ways to screw it up, he has a free hand to do whatever he wants, and thus has a very low bar to clear to maintain reasonable popularity.

Quillette on the election in Oz:
Progressive politicians like to assume that, on election day at least, blue-collar workers and urban progressives will bridge their differences, and make common cause to support leftist economic policies. This assumption might once have been warranted. But it certainly isn’t now—in large part because the intellectuals, activists and media pundits who present the most visible face of modern leftism are the same people openly attacking the values and cultural tastes of working and middle-class voters.

When I saw this article, I thought it was a little overwrought. Now, I'm not so sure. I have family in the APS, and apparently there are people there who seem seriously depressed. Like to the point where other staff are worried about them and talking about it. I've also had my own encounters with people who have non-ironically said "Fuck Queensland" to me assuming I had the same opinion. I'll be with a group of progressives in a few hours, so I think that'll be a much more painful experience than I was expecting.
There are people out there who believe in cosmic balance and that justice will prevail. If Game of Thrones has taught us anything, it's that it aint so (and that tits and dragons sell). Perhaps Labor needed to have more tits and dragons in their superior policy offering.

I'm a bit disappointed because the country does need to move on with its energy transformation and addressing food and water security wrt climate, but recognise that it will happen despite the conservatives best efforts. It will just be slower and potentially more painful than it needed to be.

But I am heartened because a) ScoMo has a chalice to his lips that was poisoned by him, his team, and an unrelenting future and b) Government Senator Arthur Sinodinos has put it out there that the Government needs to pull its head out of its posterior and position for a future with renewable energy etc.

I thought this just passed Australian election was relatively benign, if uninspiring. I wasn't too surprised by the result, but given that where I live was never going to be a surprise in the outcome, I didn't invest too much into my decision. I only cast a formal vote for the Senate.

Peterson & Milo.



I suppose I have to ask 'why?' I can't see any reason why anyone would have any association with Milo now; it was clear from the early days when he was running The Kernel that he was on the grift.

Once again I heard my wife say today "I can't believe it, the cheaper flights have all sold out". Then I learned that airlines use cookies to target repeat searches and only offer more expensive tickets on the second search. Clear airline cookies and save hundreds of dollars.

Haha. My wife keep misgendering my daughter's FTM trans boyfriend. She keeps calling the two of them "the girls"... and then she gets mad at me for not correcting her. Oh man. My explanation is that my daughter's boyfriend is the least male man I have ever encountered. He does not even present as a decent bull-dyke.... he is so feminine that the subconscious mind just calls him a female. Man oh man.

I'm pretty much content to let authors decide how their stories go, and have no sympathy for the woke complaining about season 8 being so unfair to the Mother of Dragons. All the same, there was nothing but the sensation of a balloon taking seventy five minutes to deflate during that last episode. Perhaps GRRM is being more wily than I credit him for and is watching the TV writers end the series one way, and then he will deftly substitute something better into the books.

I'm getting round to thinking that whether Brexit is a good or bad idea, what ought to concern us most is which is the greater evil - letting a population decide it's fate and possibly suffering economic trials as a result, or having political masters who can refuse to follow a democratic result as they feel they know better. I think some economic tribulation would be a worthwhile price to pay to avoid the latter, which is the classic road to totalitarianism.
This is actually the defining moment for whether the UK goes totalitarian or not. If the government can ignore a clear majority in a referendum, it can do anything.
