Five Ways to Stop the Threat to Global Health From Climate Change


First, we need to think of it in terms of opportunity. Tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st Century. Apart from the human misery escaped if we cut some of those lost trillions of dollars, imagine the net benefits if we invest the deferred losses in social good!

Second, achieving a decarbonized global economy as no longer primarily a technical, economic or financial question, it is political. As Al Gore loves to say, our capacity to survive climate change is all down to political will. And political will is a renewable resource.

Third, we need to proceed as though global health equity, sustainable development and the international policy response to climate change are inseparable. We cannot hope to cut emissions deeply enough on a global basis if the sum of our national greenhouse policies leaves billions with no prospect of poverty alleviation, and the poor health that attends poverty.

I’ll leave it up to you to read the rest, but, it sure seems like this is all about pushing far left politics, doesn’t it?

The danger of climate denial

It’s Memorial Day, and the forecast is for renewed mocking and derision regarding man-made climate change from the know-nothing, science-averse wing of the Republican Party. President Barack Obama’s warning — issued during his commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduation ceremonies Wednesday — that climate change represents a national security threat seems certain to provoke that kind of stormy reaction.

For those who actually serve in the military, however, the response is far likelier to be something along the lines of a matter-of-fact “yes, sir.” Whether it’s flooding or more severe storms at U.S. Navy bases or the manner in which thawing permafrost is damaging military facilities in Alaska, the evidence of the changing global climate is pretty obvious to the men and women in uniform. With climate-induced rising sea levels already causing problems for some coastal communities, the Coast Guard is certain to be on the front lines of this particular challenge right along with the National Guard.

Of course they say “yes, sir”, because their bosses have told them to, along with gay marriage and other Progressive policies being enforced on the military. No one is actually denying climate change: the argument is on causation. Will the Baltimore Sun give up their own use of fossil fuels to deliver their paper, and stop killing trees to publish their paper?

Perhaps what Senator Cruz and others should do is simply visit the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis where faculty have been looking into how much damage climate change will have on coastal facilities around the Chesapeake Bay and what are the most cost-effective strategies to deal with it. That might teach them why the Navy and the other branches of the military can’t afford to be climate deniers anxious to appease special interests or play to certain voters: They have a country to defend. As Mr. Obama observed, “climate change impacts every country on the planet.” It’s no laughing matter to imagine a future president who would ignore such an obvious security threat for no good reason beyond some measure of short-term political gain.

Yes, let’s let them visit and ask the Naval members exactly what their opinions are in private, without the command influence of those above them who are Cult of Climastrology members, who demand Obedience. Changes in climate will always have effects on life, some good, some bad. A massive change in the climate from an asteroid 65 million years ago had a pretty bad effect on dinosaurs, but led to the rise of the mammals, and Mankind. The climate changes, there’s no need to assign blame to Mankind. Unless someone has a political agenda.

All that said, it’s beyond shameful that the Baltimore Sun uses the occasion of Memorial Day to push its wholly unscientific political doctrine. All for new taxes, as well as for more government and less personal freedom, freedom which our military members gave their lives to defend.

Washington Post Makes Good Point On Memorial Day http://www.thepiratescove.us/2015/05/25/washington-post-makes-good-point-on-memorial-day/ http://www.thepiratescove.us/2015/05/25/washington-post-makes-good-point-on-memorial-day/#comments Mon, 25 May 2015 11:01:30 +0000 unconditional loyalty and obedience repay full abraham lincoln stated speeches ceremonies and memorial statuary the bureaucrats our brave men and women fought owe war dead obedience and discipline unconditional loyalty unquestioning obedience http://www.thepiratescove.us/?p=39596 Here’s the Editorial Board on What We Owe

I N MAY 1945, the German army, known then as the Wehrmacht, issued a final statement acknowledging its defeat after “almost six years of heroic fighting,” during which “The German soldier, true to his oath, has in the service of his nation achieved feats that will never be forgotten.” The statement, which of course leaves out quite a lot, concludes thus: “The dead compel us to unconditional loyalty, to obedience and discipline toward the Fatherland, bleeding from countless wounds.”

On this Memorial Day 70 years later, many of the peoples whose nations fought that war (including Germans) have long since concluded that we owe our war dead no such thing. We owe them lasting honor for what they give up for their country, for lives cut short in youth or destroyed by physical or mental wounds. But the greater debt is for certain freedoms defended — freedom from the demand for loyalty without moral boundaries, from unquestioning obedience to higher orders and from discipline without law or mercy.

The debt we owe is still growing today, and it is beyond our means to repay in full. Abraham Lincoln stated it succinctly at Gettysburg with his series of negatives: “We can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground.” As Lincoln had it, the greater part of that work had been done by the war dead, and completing it was more than a matter of speeches, ceremonies and memorial statuary. It was, and is, a steady and abiding commitment to government chosen by, conducted by and dedicated to the good of its people, and a willingness to sacrifice to ensure the survival of that form of government — including the minimal but often neglected obligation to pay attention to what our leaders are doing, to listen and speak out and vote. In short, to make the thing work.

At first blush, it almost seems as if the WPEB is telling us that we must be Loyal to Government, but, taken in total, they’re stating that there should be a commitment to preserving our governmental system, as laid forth within our founding documents. To hold Government accountable, from the politicians to the bureaucrats.

Our brave men and women fought for the freedoms in our system. They fought against totalitarian/authoritarian governments in Europe. Interestingly enough, Lincoln fought to increase the power of the federal government, reducing the power of the States. Something to think about.

A question for the Washington Post: what, exactly, are they doing to hold government accountable to the People, when their coverage is extremely partisan, and the side they have chosen has more in common with the Germany of World War II? One which does, in fact, demand “Unconditional loyalty and obedience” to a government and the Party leaders? One which, after decades of trying to destroy our military, is now working overtime to turn it into a breeding ground of Progressive (nice fascist) ideals?

Anyone else have a link or hotty-fest going on? Let me know so I can add you to the list. (BTW, since someone asked, the reason I leave links for the previous week up (or you might see a *) is because they are place holders for later in the day or for next weeks. Easier than rewriting all the time. Also, the listing order has to do with how they are added over time, not how good a post is. I just copy and paste from the previous week, then edit. If you see one of the *’s, go ahead and check out the blog anyhow, see if there is an update. I cannot update with my Android during the day.

It’s The Summer Of Cli-Fi http://www.thepiratescove.us/2015/05/24/its-the-summer-of-cli-fi/ http://www.thepiratescove.us/2015/05/24/its-the-summer-of-cli-fi/#comments Sun, 24 May 2015 11:48:20 +0000 cli fi climate fiction novels saci lloyd and david thorpe pointed minds subversive viral ideas summer blockbuster starring george clooney based cli fi sexusal uk telegraph a wide eyed teenager named casey played a disney theme park hits theaters the world the logline for tomorrowland is deceptively complicated http://www.thepiratescove.us/?p=39591 What is Cli-fi? No, it’s not something sexusal

(UK Telegraph) Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.

David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could ‘infect’ their minds with ‘seriously subversive viral ideas’.

“I like writing for children because their minds are still forming,” said Mr Thorpe whose novel is set in a coastal Wales ravaged by climate change and rising sea levels.

“They are asking all sorts of questions about how the world is working. Their minds haven’t been tainted by ideological bias, they are still open minded about it.

“You can try to be seriously subversive and try to infect their minds with these viral ideas that they can explore on their own to make it exciting. When I was that age I loved having my mind boggled.”

In other words, they are using cli-fi to indoctrinate children, to scare children, to put fear in their minds, and give them all sorts of anxieties. It’s intellectual and spiritual child molestation, using a flawed and failed “science”. It started with Al Gore’s horribly bad movie “An Inconvenient Truth”, full of many errors. In the UK, schools must warn of bias and errors when it is shown, per a High Court order.

George Marshall, one of the writers in attendance, “founder of the Climate Outreach Information Network and author of Don’t Even Think About It: Why our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change”, has taken issue with the way this is being portrayed in the comments for the story

As one of the participants in this event I strongly object to the slant suggested in the byline that we were discussing a strategy for “activists” to “target children”. Policy makers across the political spectrum regard climate change to be one of the key issues of our time and were we discussing the ways that artists and writers respond to this in their work. Of course children’s writing should be a part of this, but, as Saci Lloyd and David Thorpe pointed out, good writing for all ages is driven by strong stories and characters not by political messaging. I would add that I never said that people are “bored” by science, but rather that attitudes are formed by narratives not data: a conclusion, incidentally, derived from rigourous cognitive research.

To which socalpa has responded

Do you then deny an intent to manipulate the young by introducing an element of Fear regarding Weather/Climate ?

“attitudes are formed by narratives not data:” ?

Why then must a “narrative” be introduced to young minds ?

Is it because the data shows different implications then the ones desired by the writers ? Clearly, the actual science shows many contradictory scenarios for the future impacts of Global Warming. The catastrophic scenarios largely debunked by this centuries science.

This is political. Otherwise, a narrative would not be needed.

Meanwhile, more climate-fiction at the movie theaters

(Daily Beast) George Clooney’s new summer blockbuster shames us for our roles in global warming and a potpourri of other earthly calamities.

Never has commercialism and idealism blended so beautifully, and still so discordantly.

A $190 million summer blockbuster starring George Clooney based on an area in a Disney theme park hits theaters, presumably hoping to rake in at least that much at the box office. Its narrative goal, however: to get you to stop caring so much about the vapid capitalistic things that are ruining us all and instead maybe do something to make the world a better place.

Is this the same George Clooney has multiple McMansions and takes lots and lots of fossil fueled travel around the world?

The logline for Tomorrowland is deceptively complicated for a film so aggressively blunt with its message. That message, by the way? We have the power to save the world, should we choose to use it.

It’s Al Gore by way of Captain Planet, Disney-approved.

We’re introduced to a wide-eyed teenager named Casey (played by Britt Robertson), the daughter of a NASA engineer, who refuses to accept the end of the Space Race era, and the optimism and spirit it embodied.

The next part is the wee bit of sci-fi wonkiness: Casey is recruited by an ageless adolescent android who gives her a pin that transports her to Tomorrowland—a Jetsons-like utopia where the brightest, purest minds in the world were meant to gather to manufacture the brightest future possible.

OK, so, a summer blockbuster (we’ll have to see how the box-office figures work out) that’s preachy and, well, preachy. Just what everyone wants in a summer movie. One which tells us that we should bow down to the “experts” and allow them to manufacture our futures.

It does delve into more than just “climate change”, featuring a myriad of other issues, to be clear. But, of course, the Cult of Climastrology is working hard to subsume all those issues, such as poverty, obesity, starvation, and real ecological problems, under the One True Banner of “climate change”.

Can’t I just watch a movie and read a book?

Speaking at a Commencement Ceremony for the Naval Academy today, Vice President Joe Biden warned graduates that they would have to be prepared for the devastating effects of climate change.

“We’ll rely on you, the United States Navy, to lead in solving these emerging problems,” he said, pointing to the massive devastation caused by a major typhoon in the Philippines.

If your company president and his flunky VP are telling you to Do Something and to Believe in something, do you, at the least, pay lip service? Especially if you are a high ranking officer in the company?

And then Joe jumped in his fossil fueled vehicle to head back to his home, surrounded by multiple fossil fueled Secret Service vehicles.
