DEAR YOUNG PEOPLE: THREE WORDS

June 1, 2017

After today’s announcement about our country’s non-participation in the Paris Accords,  I see there has been a lot of hysterical,  illogical,  non-scientific pronouncements coming out of Mainstream Media,  Social Media,  and Hollywood actors and actresses.

I trust  there are many among us with love for our planet,  love for our country  (The United States of America),  a love for science and invention,  and a can-do attitude.    Therefore,  I give you,  the up-and-coming generation,  THREE WORDS:

Zero.   Point.   Energy.

 

BIG BANG

 

Zero.  Point.  Energy.   (it goes by other names and there are variations)

_______________________________________________________

 

  1.    It’s all around you;  you just have to find a clever  way to get it.

 

2.   It’s challenging, dangerous work;  don’t get killed.

 

3.    “Fossil” Fuels  are not made from “fossils.”    The planet isn’t about to run out of  smooshed dinosaurs – and there is no such thing as peak oil.  Therefore,  you have plenty of time for this project.

 

4.   “Solar power”  and “wind power”  require more electricity  (generated from coal, etc.)   to create its electricity  than what these techniques can  even generate.      So far.    It may take a very long time to make this technology viable.

 

5.   It will soon become apparent to all just how lethal nuclear power plants are.   It is the most deadly way humans have ever invented in order to simply boil water and generate steam.

 

The three words:  Zero Point Energy.    The old-timers will laugh at you;    but you will be on a righteous mission and you’ll save the planet.

Just keep your newly discovered technology:  Open Source!

THE BIG SISSIES

June 7, 2016

This must be Sissy Weather –

Sissy Pond

See any goldfish in there?     Nope.

I have more than three dozen so far this year, and they’ve all disappeared because it got a little chilly out there.   The big sissies.   They’ve been gone all day.

For my part,  I’ve been enjoying the cool winds all day.   I kept the windows open today, in 62 degree temperatures, so now my house is . . .  about 62 degrees inside.   It’s going to get down to the low 50s tonight – and I’m NOT turning on my furnace.    Quilts,   hot tea, and a stack of books are what cold houses are for!

We’ll see.

Sisssy herbs

The Weather Channel has not announced our three or four spells of “unseasonably:  cold weather this Spring  –  temperatures   “way below average.”    (They do, however,  enthusiastically announce wherever the temperatures are warmer than average.  Must be that that “climate change” is going in only one direction.)

I’ve been much more active in this cool weather.

I’m just getting started on my herb garden,  and I promised myself I’d take a year or two off of tomato growing.  Maybe the Great Midwestern Tomato Blight will be done by then.    I live around enough Amish farmers to make a trip to the Farmer’s Market a  better alternative.

 

All of my neighbors are busy trying to keep up with late Spring yard chores, so that the summer’s growth doesn’t become overwhelming.    Like these pretty flowers surrounding St. Joseph –

sissy invasion

I didn’t plant those flowers.    Every day they seem to get bigger and thicker.   Turns out they are an “invasive species”  and they are efficiently invading my space.   So rather than “growing” things  this year,  my summer will be busy “ungrowing”  things.

Sometimes we need to  stop growing things,  to “ungrow,”  to cut back, to weed out — oh, I think I’m talking other things:  my books,  my extra possessions that are “extra”  for no particular purpose,   all my photos,   and all the photos on my computer desktop waiting to be used . . .

I’ve just taken a kind of interlude from more serious issues.    I need the courage and prudence to say things in just the right way,  because our civilization is at stake.   It’s so easy to let it go,   to make no remarks,   for “good people to do nothing,”  —  to be a big Sissy.

Sissy white pond

Well.      That’s not our gray sky through the trees.   That’s still looking down at the pond, at the empty pond;  still nobody there.

The big sissies.

LET’S DO ICE

August 4, 2015

( Global Rulers are demanding our money.   They’re in charge, because few will rise up and oppose,  even though only a minority of “scientists” and “popular opinion polls”   agree with their Scheme to justify their theft of money from good citizens of the world.)

Ice

The justification is that there is “climate change”  —  which I found discussed in my science books many, many decades ago  —  and that we must believe that human activities are suddenly responsible  and we must agree that a few of the countries of the world must be beaten down economically to “pay for”  aeons old climate change.   Originally it was “global warming”  and massive ice melts and ocean rises.

The man that They put into the chair of the president of the United States promised the American people that he would make the ocean waters recede — by seven inches worldwide !! — and that man promised that one of the ways he would do it is by “making our utility bills skyrocket.”      (His word, not mine.)

Skyrocketing utility bills?   Skyrocketing prices for electricity, heating, and air conditioning?

That’s the Plan for us proposed this week by the Barack Hussein person,  seconded by a strange religious “prophet.”

2 Marxists understanding each other

So “let’s do ice,”  because that is the most comical “evidence”  for man-made climate change.

CHART   Ice global sea iceSee the up and down blue lines on the chart?    That’s a record of the extent of global sea ice.  It’s how much ice has covered the globe from time to time — since 1979.   The chart’s curves do not match the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.  No relationship between carbon dioxide and ice formation or ice melting.

Ice coverage tends to go up and down,  but remains about the same throughout the decades.   No rise in ocean levels.    No loss of ice for the polar bears.

ice polar bearThey know what to do in ice and in water.   Especially when their environment is not really changing!

Here is an aerial view of last year’s ice coverage in the Arctic region.   The Red line shows the average amount of ice cover.  The picture is from 2014.

Ice Aerial Average Ice Red lineNot much difference.     The polar bears are safe.     Shame to the elementary school teachers who caused some of their children to have nightmares about drowning, starving polar bears  (as reported in news stories).   Shame to the adults who believed the spurious science studies.   Shame to the adults who shrug their shoulders on the issue.

As undersea volcanoes increase, certain ocean currents warm up,  bringing warmer air;  therefore certain coastal glaciers recede, even as other glaciers are increasing, worldwide.     Carbon dioxide doesn’t make ice or melt ice.     It’s not the very small  amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,  less geologically speaking now than there has been in the past — before humans.

There is no global climate change.   The ice tells us that.

Mount Erebus, Antarctica

I guess the Barack Hussein person doesn’t have to work his magic on ocean levels.

And he really doesn’t have to cause our utility bills to rise — or cause large regions of this country to lose their means of making a living,  shutting down coal fields.

But he will try.

Because he has an agenda.   He has a Scheme.  He’s doing the bidding of our World Rulers.   He is well protected.  A man wo considers himself above the Law cannot be stopped.

And never has it been known that the public dares to defy its Caesar.
