Global warming I tell ‘ee

Texas sees one of its coldest winters in decades as temperatures drop

  1. The problem is that the whole thing is based on the claim that more CO2 in the atmosphere will cause significant warming. It is now self evident that this claim is false. It is at least plausible that other effects such as floods and droughts could follow from the warming effect of the CO2. The warming making it colder isn’t plausible at all. If you claim that something causes warming and it gets colder instead that means that you are wrong, it really is that simple.

    Indeed. If it is hotter, colder, wetter, dryer, windier, less windy, if the seas rise or fall, if the polar caps get bigger or smaller, if there are deserts or floods, in fact if we have any weather at all, it is proof of ‘climate change’ and even if the change is good it is bad and something must be done.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    I have been talking about climate change on line and in real life for about 35 years now. Maybe longer.

    In all that time, precisely no evidence of climate change due to anything mankind has done has turned up – with the minor exception of the production of soot and dust that may be damaging glaciers.

    I think it is more likely to say Texas is frozen because Gaia is displeased about the election fraud.

  4. Ah but they gave that lede a magnificent funeral:

    Concerns about power outages due to the high demand for energy across the state prompted officials to urge residents to conserve where possible.

    “Concerns” about power, you say? In a state that proudly bills itself the world leader in oil and gas production? Yes:

    Texas power grid operators start rotating blackouts as state sets record high power demand – Austin-American newspaper.

    But why? Even the local paper is coy about the actual reason for this mysterious inability of the energy capital of the Western world to keep both the heating and the lights on when it actually needs both.

    A quick bit of further googling yields:

    Nearly half of Texas’ installed wind power generation capacity has been offline because of frozen wind turbines in West Texas, according to Texas grid operators.

    Will we learn anything from this predictable failure of “green” leccy to deliver the goods when it’s needed most? Anything at all? Bueller… Bueller… Anyone?

    Now imagine how much worse off they’ll be when they’re reliant on the unreliable green energy grid to pull double duty: powering both buildings and millions upon millions of vehicles.

    Thanks George W!

  6. All that solar power, made in China with the slave labour of Uighur…we must ban goods made by slave-labour…so we must ban solar power made in China. Oh, no one else is making it. We must buy more solar power made in China. No. We must…Pop.

    It’d take a heart of stone not to laugh.

  7. All you climate change deniers should look at all the things that anthropogenic climate change has caused:

    More lesbians and homosexuals
    More transsexuals, including MTF and FTM
    Covid
    Brexit
    Migration (as if free healthcare, housing and benefits weren’t a big draw)
    Rising sea levels so that most of the UK is flooded
    Melting ice (how come that the melting ice in a G&T doesn’t make it bigger?)
    More Labour/SNP/Plaid/IRA twattery
    More stabbings
    Racism (like BAMEs dying from Covid)
    More pandemics coming from China …
