Venus, Earth’s Eeeeeeeevil Twin, Highlights Our Hotcoldwetdry End Game

It’s been a while since I featured a truly bat guano insane article from Grist (I actually do check the site almost every day). Here we go

No Venus envy here: Earth’s evil twin shows us the climate change endgame

Imagine Earth with toxic air, stifling heat, no water, and no signs of life — sort of like Los Angeles. This is a world laid bare by massive and catastrophic climate change, and believe it or not, it isn’t science fiction. It’s our neighbor, Venus, and it’s more similar to Earth than you might want to believe.

Venus and Earth have a lot in common: They’re practically the same size, they’re made up of basically the same stuff, and early in the life of our solar system they were nearly identical, right down to oceans and moderate atmospheres. But then climate change arrived on Venus — the same processes that are playing out on our planet today with rising carbon dioxide and an increasing greenhouse effect — and transformed the planet into an uninhabitable, 900-degree wasteland swathed in clouds of sulfuric acid.

Um, yeah. What caused that greenhouse effect with rising CO2 and swathed in clouds of sulfuric acid? There no fossil fueled vehicles. No fossil fueled flight. No fossil fueled power plants. No life taking long showers, leaving their DVRs plugged in, refusing to buy local, refusing to use 2 sheets of TP, and no life “spreading awareness”. So, what actually caused Venus to be Venus? Could it possibly have been……*gulp*…..nature? Oh, and its location in relationship to that massive nuclear furnace in the center of the solar system?

But then climate change arrived on Venus

Yes, we can count the years back to the exact time when life on Venus was so sweet, calm, peaceful, and a down-right tropical paradise.

If only man hadn’t turned on the air conditioning on Venus. WE could still be living there.

I think some of these warmists should go live there- now!

Having just watched some NatGeo or Discovery channel show about the planets,I can tell you that the scientists have not confirmed that Venus was ever a paradise. And as the second planet from the “Sun” it is quite possible that the planet never was and could never ever be like the Earth, with or without our evil greenhouse gases.

Warmists say the darndest things.

Forget Venus. I’m looking for signs
of intelligent life on this planet.

Apart from JG.. Trish is always first to know. Our resident troll is ignorant of being the last. He refuses to even be on the list.

Isn’t MAN part of “nature” ? if we aren’t natural what are we supernatural ?

You are right. We are part of nature. Thus, anything we do is natural.

welcome to our side.

and Teach remember solar radiation/energy/heat comes in the form of UV (ultraviolet) waveform which easily passes through greenhouse gases. When it strikes Venus it is reradiated off in the IR (infared) energy spectrum which is easily absorbed by greenhouse gases. Just like here on Earth. And solar radiation does pass through the vacuum of space quite easily, our moon has no atmosphere and is subject to extremes of heat and cold. Our greenhouse gases are like a blanket that should keep us warm and comfy, but now that blanket is getting to heavy and we are too hot.

you are completely bat-guano full to the tilted brim with idiocy. It’s actually detrimental to society the harm that your choice of ignorant lifestyle inflicts.

The sun only emits UV rays?

our moon has no atmosphere and is subject to extremes of heat and cold.
