Whatever we reduce, China and/or India increase by double (or so). Even the Euros are going the wrong way despite their smug posturing.

Plus glaciers are growing (per NASA) and its getting colder.

Clarice,

Brilliant Pieces. LOL funny and true when you think about it. Parscales just bought a new rocking chair:)

JimNJ,

The problem isn’t new kind of ships or field tactics. None of that will work without a change in command leadership and training. You have to start at the academies but that will be hard now that they are all wrapped up in PC, diversity and social justice BS. Ask any grad from the 60’s and 70’s. The cadets, middies and falcons can’t even march correctly.

I saw an article that claimed that comedian Kevin Hart's car didn't have modern safety innovations.

Huh?

https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/classic-cars/before-the-crash-kevin-harts-1970-cuda/ar-AAGOBGn?li=BBnb4R5

He was driving a 1970 "Cuda. That's wrong? I drove a 1968 Camaro for more than 30 years.

I don't care how many "safety features" your new cars have, if you lose situational awareness, you're dead or you killed somebody else.

Drivers of new cars are getting lazy.

Old Lurker

I'm sorry.

I simply do not accept that man made greenhouse gas emissions mean a damn thing; I do not think that measured actual warming free of manipulation or rising oceans free of manipulation or storm frequency and strength free of manipulation are much different than man has experienced in the past; I do not accept that some warming is a bad thing nor do I think it can be avoided even with no mankind to blame it on; I do not think any of the smart people have any idea what the global temps will be in 100 years, not do I think that the oceans will rise much more because of man than they already will from the "from the beginning of time" cycles of glaciation and melting which in turn is caused but solar cycles and tilting earths.

But baying at the moon or casting virgins down deep wells will not do anything at all to change what is coming. Nor will enslaving the most productive humans and hitching them to the wagons carrying the masses produce the next Wheel, Cotton Gin, or Steam Engine.

Deal with it.

“Thousands of protesters earlier sang the Star Spangled Banner and called on U.S. President Donald Trump to “liberate” the city.”

No. Hell no.

If Trump acting in the direct interests of the US helps a pro-democracy movement there, great. But I do not want any US involvement with these protesters.

Because they oppose the Chicoms I think there’s been some presumption that they’re unvarnished “good guys”. I don’t think we know enough about them and their ultimate “war aims”.

JIB,

I agree, but when you have a head of service issuing a new mandate it gets all the underlings to re-think.

If China is our next threat I think war games are affecting our thinking. We are probably adapting based on those war games.

I didn't read the msn story, Jim, but the brief Fox version actually made a reasonable point. The car had a 700+ hp engine. If you are going to build a quasi race car, you are smart to add a race harness as well as a roll bar or roll cage.(neither of which are "modern")

Are other articles suggesting airbags or traction control, or something truly modern by 70 Cuda standards?

I didn't pay too much attention to the Kevin Hart story when it happened. One article describes the car as a two seater. Another notes that three people were in the car at the time of the wreck. I'm not sure what good two harness would do for someone riding on a lap, unless you are filming a kinky movie.

Also, I read that Hart fled the scene and went home, leaving the other two in the wreck. Hmmmm.

Absolutely no evidence man is having any effect on long-term climate.

Absolutely no evidence man could affect long-term climate even if we wanted to, other than perhaps unimaginable nuclear war creating the “nuclear winter”.

That the only “solutions” advocated by its hucksters are a global fascism with them in power makes motives easy to question.

Part of the weight chopping was to compensate for the additional weight of the motor package. This was a show car that, if anything, could have been further engineered to be a straight line bruiser.

It would never be a Mulholland Drive slot car.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

One of the things I never understand is why the climate hysterics go nuts about carbon. What plants NEED in order to live is .... carbon dioxide. If you reduce that too much, crops will struggle and perhaps fail.

The whole thing is a scam, and while I want clean air and no junk killing animals and fish in the ocean, it seems to me that these same people who are carrying on about the climate don't give a hoot about poop on San Francisco streets or trash all over Los Angeles left by homeless people.

I personally believe that we are entering a cooling period, as demonstrated by NASA telling us the glacier in Greenland is growing. I think we should be figuring out how to keep everyone warm.

OL,

Agreed, I could do an essay disputing the "supposed" Climate Warming. I won't bother to do so here as I don't think anyone here needs to hear it.

But in oral arguments I can demolish almost any counter-argument. It's not even hard. I've been following this issue in depth for more than 15 years.

When you argue with people who only read headlines and you know the specifics, it's easy.

After a short while they want to change the subject of the conversation.

The MSM doesn't inform, it issues propaganda.

The Infamous Ignatz

While it's true CO2 is a trace gas, the physics of how more of it in the atmosphere traps more heat is simple and well known. And that there is considerably more than 150 years ago is also well known.
What is not known is how the earth's climate works, so the simple knowledge that more CO2 traps more heat is not very useful. I've mentioned it a couple of times lately, but will do so again; even NASA, climate change central, admits that climate models' ability to model cloud behavior and feedbacks is so rudimentary that their resolution must increase one hundred fold to give the models the ability to make useful climate projections. Consequently the models largely ignore clouds. IOW, they don't even have enough information to know what garbage to put into the front end of the GIGO equation.
At the bottom of the little ice age we were perilously close to a CO2 starved climate. A warmer, more CO2 rich planet is a planet more conducive to habitability and life, virtually all life. There is actual science and actual observations that strongly support that.
All the rest of it, all the catastrophism about mass extinctions, inundated cities and islands, dead reefs from acidified oceans, hockey stick temperature trends, famines, droughts, super hurricanes, abandoning fossil fuels, etc, is the point of the ascientific spear of left wing authoritarianism/totalitarianism. Period.

Tom Bowler

This is Robinson Meyer, expert on nuclear power and author of the article linked by TM above, "There Really, Really Isn’t a Silver Bullet for Climate Change." The title is encouraging but then you get into the article where you find that he likes AOC's Green New Deal.

The subheading spells it out: Nuclear power might be part of a Green New Deal, but it can’t meet all U.S. energy needs. I'd have thought that was obvious. If he didn't look like he's 14, I might have mistaken him for an old school lefty: "It's the nukes that should go and not me!"

Interesting stuff on the guy comes up when you do a search on him. Mostly articles he has written, but I thought this little bio on Business Insider was interesting:

Robinson Meyer is a writer and musician based near Chicago and a regular contributor to TheAtlantic.com.

I think that bio was written sometime in 2016, since he is now a staff writer at Atlantic, rather than just a regular contributor.

Anyway, among the articles listed under his Business Insider bio are:


The average American is personally responsible for melting 645 square feet of Arctic ice every year

Robinson Meyer, The Atlantic Nov. 5, 2016, 7:08 PM


A new report argues you're more likely to die in a mass extinction than a car crash

Robinson Meyer, The Atlantic Apr. 30, 2016, 7:59 PM


This is what happens when the president sits down next to you at a cafe

Robinson Meyer, The Atlantic Mar. 13, 2016, 2:46 PM


That last one was very popular with editors at Atlantic, since they published it three times in all, first on Nov. 22, 2014, at 7:15 PM, and then again Oct. 17, 2015, at 6:00 PM.

The article is about Obama visiting a "bar-cafe-restaurant" trying to get millennials to sign up for ObamaCare. Robinson Meyer happened to be there.

I'm not inspired by Robinson Meyer's knowledge, insight, or wisdom on the subject of Climate Change (formerly known as "Global Warming" formerly known as "Global Cooling"), or any other subject for that matter -- even though he has figured out that nuclear power will never replace all other sources of energy.

He ends his No Silver Bullet article with this bit of amazement at conservatives support for nuclear power.

“It is interesting to me that conservatives flock to nuclear power. They point to France! I can’t get over that,” Ori told me last week, sounding bewildered. “It’s a state-run industry in France."

Talk about non sequitur.

What does not amaze me is The Atlantic actually paying people to write such utter bullshit. That's what the left is about, after all. Democrats are getting wackier by the day on the subject of climate change, and the media's job is to try to make them sound sane.

Well, Ori, TVA is a state-run industry also as is the Washington Public Power System for starters. What a maroon.

Over 75% of EDF production is nuclear. In fact, France is the largest exporter of electric power in the world. Close to $3 billion a year. Trouble is that the watermelon tribe has infiltrated France's energy policy and now France wants to reduce its nuclear production down to 50% by 2035. Of course, as with everything the green & red want to do has unintended consequences like decommissioning and waste disposal of spent fuel.

Sweden has been through this or attempted to and found out replacing dispatchable baseload nuclear is not as easy as 1,2,3,,,,go green.

I really have to agree with Gus. The vast swath of humanity INCLUDING within this very country no longer possesses the critical thinking skills required to separate the wheat from the chaff of debate points and counterpoints. (Much of but not all) Science itself has taken a great leap backwards to pre-Galilean times to where now can coexist "good" science and "bad" science, and where one stands on that determines the funding one receives. Since we have no shortage of emotions, we have no problem feeling really really sad about "things".
