Another Rebranding: From 'global warming' to 'climate change' to 'climate restoration'
American Thinker ^ | 04/16/2018 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 04/16/2018 9:58:24 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The increase in the atmospheric trace gas of CO2 has so far failed to deliver the catastrophic consequences predicted by the alarmists like Al Gore.  The headlines about "the end of snow" are now an embarrassment after a winter of abundant frozen precipitation.  At least a  decade ago, the fraudsters relabeled their purported peril "climate change," allowing any unusual weather to be blamed on mankind's use of fossil fuels.

Now another rebranding is being proposed.  Michael Walsh noticed, at PJ Media:

The Left, in the form of the think thank RAND, has gone full Luddite:

Since the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, society has organized efforts to limit the magnitude of climate change around the concept of stabilization – that is, accepting some climate change but holding it within acceptable bounds. This report offers an initial exploration of the concept of  climate restoration – that is, approaches that seek to return atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases to preindustrial levels within one to two generations. Using a simple integrated assessment model, the analysis examines climate restoration through the lens of risk management under conditions of deep uncertainty, exploring the technology, economic, and policy conditions under which it might be possible to achieve various climate restoration goals and the conditions under which society might be better off with (rather than without) a climate restoration goal. This report also explores near-term actions that might help manage the risks of climate restoration.

"Luddite" is a good term, for it connotes opposition to the Industrial Revolution, which was (and remains in its "Information Age" version) dependent on the combustion of carbon-based fuels for electrical generation and transportation.  The longing for some imagined paradise of living in harmony with nature is even more pervasive in modern history.

The climate does not need restoring. It is just fine like it is. What idiots don’t see is that weather is the mechanism by which the Earth redistributes excess heat and ultimately gets rid of it.

Daytime the Sun bathes the Earth in heat. Nighttime the Earth radiates most of the head out into space. Has been happening since the beginning of the Earth, and will continue until liberals destroy it.

Wouldn’t getting back to pre-industrial levels likely involve eliminating a few billion people from the planet as well?

Its not about climate change... er, climate restoration.

Its about promoting human extinction. Someday, they’ll be honest about it.

Yup...

Letting people die of cold and extreme heat is the real goal.

If you believe humans are at fault for the weather, eliminate them.

Doing away with technology is only a cover for far more radical goals of the anti-anthropocentric Left.

For the first time since Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring”, Econazi pseudo-scientists have named the actual goal of their Charade:

“...climate restoration...to return atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases to preindustrial levels within one to two generations...”

Its human extinction they’re really after.

Like the nutso lawyer who carbonized himself this weekend.

That’s how seriously they take it.

The blows keep coming. The more re-branding and re-naming they do; the more they are losing.

A true restoration would require the elimination of blue-green algae and the evil devastation they have wrought upon the world..

They destroyed virtually all life on Earth by dumping poisonous OXYGEN into the atmosphere. If we’re going for restoration, we should restore Earth to its original pristine oxygen-free atmosphere of a couple billion years ago.

They tried "Climate Disruption" when Climate Change didn't seem to be scary enough but it didn't catch on ...

Mar 12, 2015 @ 08:52 AM 11,048
The Little Black Book of Billionaire Secrets Forget Global Warming And Climate Change, Call It 'Climate Disruption' Jeff McMahon , Contributor From Chicago, I write about green technology, energy, environment.

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

People have learned to cope with change by thinking it's not all bad, but climate change is all bad, according to a climate scientist at Argonne National Laboratory who says it's time to replace the term climate change, itself a replacement for global warming, with a new term: climate disruption.

⛽️🔥. We need more of them to be that committed. Maybe a mass inferno for 4/22 to prove how much they care? Hemi is gassed up and a couple of tires to help celebrate.
