Skip to comments.Climate Blues: How Environmentalists Chill Out in a Warming World
Posted on 05/24/2014 8:51:36 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Studies warning of an Antarctic ice sheet collapse. A wildfire season that could shatter records. Shellfish eaten away by oceans turned more acidic due to greenhouse gases. U.N. and U.S. reports stating that climate change is advancing more quickly.
Everyone gets down about their work from time to time, but for environmentalists, they can sometimes quite literally be dealing with the end of the world as we know it.
Its hard to stay perky when scientists conclude that tragedy, such as the loss of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is inevitable, says Denis Hayes, a veteran activist who co-founded Earth Day in 1970.
The scale of the mess were in, environmentally, is enough to push anyone to the edge of their sanity, adds Dougald Hine, co-founder of The Dark Mountain Project, a group of activists fully expecting ecological, and social, collapse across the planet.

NOW.....if the man had stated that “The scale of the mess were in, environmentally, is enough to push anyone to the edge of ..... sanity, Id roundly applaud this situation,,,,,
The eco-lunatics are getting more and more desperate, and so long as they get support from the media and the left, are likely to become more and more violent.
Global Sea Ice Skyrocketing

Global Sea Ice Extent is 913,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean and is well above the one standard deviation mark.

We were greeted with fresh May snow this morning! Unofficially Id say 3 to 4 inches on the ground when I arrived around 8am.

Around the 41 minute mark youll see what he is predicting for the next 20 years - a drastic drop in global temperature.
Who knew that liberals were ever “Perky”?
They seem perpetually ticked off to me.
Always have a bee in their bonnet about something.
Herein lies the problem for the environmentalist these days, and this is likely to be one of several important factors in the demise of the whole movement. Once you convince people that something is "inevitable," you've effectively told them that it's a waste of time to even give a damn about it anymore. I suspect this is one reason why environmental issues are never important to most people.
And for the rest of us who know that anthropogenic global warming is a massive scientific fraud (now renamed “climate change” since warming didn’t happen), the worry is not so much.
The Left wants the debate kept at whether theres global warming. We need to turn the debate away from that somewhat silly argument. The argument about scientific data and evidence of whether or not "global warming" exists can go on from now 'till Moses. (The Bible does indicate a warm-up and a rising sea in the last days.) It is really beside the point. The more the Right argues this wrong point, the sillier the Right potentially looks and the stronger this oft-unspoken presumption of man-made causes seems to get.
Instead, the Right needs to steer the debate to where the real point is: THE CAUSE. As there may be some debate about whether theres global warming, theres no real true, scientific debate that man is causing global warming. Arguments need to be advanced to first get this somewhat stealth presumption "out" into the open and then to defeat this Leftist excuse for more government tyranny over our lives. It should be fairly easy to win the debate over this really silly presumed notion.
Oooo, you're not keeping up.
Now it's called "climate disruption" to increase the fear factor.
When Reagan swiftly abandoned the solar goal, trimmed my budget by 80 percent, fired most of my staff and all of my contractors — two of whom went on later to win Nobel prizes — I was absolutely crushed,...
I sure do miss Ronald Reagan!
Pretty much sums it up. That’s also the problem too, saying, like my professor was willing to say, that “it’s a manageable issue” makes a world of difference.
You can add this to the pile:
Hey Jack, could you send that post to as many Enviro-Nazis and Leftist Congressmen as you can?
Green is ice present in 2013, which was not present in 1992. Red shows the opposite.
HISTORY OF THE SUBJECT
The [news media] is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant
and the crazy crazier.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them

Sure! Why not? It’ll p.o. them, but I don’t mind a bit.
Sea Ice News Volume 5 #2 NOAA forecasts above normal Arctic ice extent for summer 2014
Joe Bastardi was saying that when the Arctic sea ice comes back in the Fall combined with the Antarctic sea ice extent it will possibly break the global sea ice extent record.

NBC forgot to throw in Paul Ehrlich’s newest claim - that we’re going to have to eat each other’s dead bodies to survive because of global warming.
