In Warmist world, everything is linked in one way or another to “climate change”. If it isn’t, they’ll create a link
My prognosis is very likely to be very good, despite the ominous sounding diagnosis — a small well-defined pancreatic neuro-endocrine tumor (PNET). Today, Thursday, I had surgery at Johns Hopkins to remove it. It wasn’t causing symptoms (that I’m aware of).
Well, I’m glad to hear that Joe got it taken care of. I hope you have a long life, Joe, keeping me and other climate realists amused with your brand of climahypocrisy and doom-saying.
There are many analogies between dealing with early stage climate change and dealing with early stage diseases, analogies I’ve often made myself. As you can imagine, I’ve thought of a few more in the last several weeks.
So one big difference between this PNET and global warming is that global warming is highly likely to be fatal to a livable climate and modern civilization if left untreated. Still, I think it safe to say that most people would take it out, but then most people act considerably more risk averse toward worst-case scenarios in their own life than society is acting towards the business-as-usual scenario of unrestricted emissions of greenhouse gas.
If only there was something Warmists could do, like making their own lives “carbon neutral”…..say, I wonder how big the carbon footprint is for that hospital and for the surgery?
Indeed, if you use Google you can find the unofficial first rule for surgeons is, “Eat when you can, sleep when you can, and don’t f@ck with the pancreas!”
And, with a one-word change, that will eventually be the rule for humanity. The sooner, the better.
Hmm, if that’s the case, then Warmists should stop making recommendations to enact policies that will change the climate.
