Warmist Want You To “Connect The Dots”

Because any slight change in day to day weather obviously means we’re all doooooooooomed! So says hyper-warmist Bill McKibben

(Grist) The Williams River was so languid and lovely last Saturday morning that it was almost impossible to imagine the violence with which it must have been running on Aug. 28, 2011. And yet the evidence was all around: sand piled high on its banks, trees still scattered as if by a giant’s fist, and most obvious of all, a utilitarian temporary bridge where for 140 years a graceful covered bridge had spanned the water.

Floods never happened when CO2 was below 350ppm. It goes up when people fly/drive from Vermont to Washington D.C. in order to be arrested while protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. Like McKibben.

Which is what we must do. As long as this remains one abstract problem in the long list of problems, we’ll never get to it.  There will always be something going on each day that’s more important, including, if you’re facing flood or drought, the immediate danger.

If only there was something that Warmists could do within their own lives, like not taking fossil fueled trips to get arrested while protesting.

But in reality, climate change is actually the biggest thing that’s going on every single day. If we could only see that pattern we’d have a fighting chance. It’s like one of those trompe l’oeil puzzles where you can only catch sight of the real picture by holding it a certain way. So this weekend we’ll be doing our best to hold our planet a certain way so that the most essential pattern is evident. At 350.org, we’re organizing a global day of action that’s all about dot-connecting; in fact, you can follow the action at climatedots.org.

Finally, Warmists are going to use this day of action to change their own lives.

In Portland, Ore., city dwellers will hold an umbrella-decorating party to commemorate March’s record rains. In Bandelier, N.M., firefighters in full uniform will remember last year’s record forest fires and unveil the new solar panels on their fire station. In Miami, Manhattan, and Maui, citizens will line streets that scientists say will eventually be underwater. In the high Sierra, on one of the glaciers steadily melting away, protesters will unveil a giant banner with just two words, a quote from that classic of western children’s literature, The Wizard of Oz. “I’m Melting,” it will say, in letters three stories high.

Or not. McKibben provides multiple paragraphs highlight more of the tired “spreading awareness.” Why should anyone believe their mule fritters if they will never take action themselves?

It’s sunny here in Raleigh, with a 30% chance of rain later. Obviously, that’s because I drove an SUV to work. It was never hot/cold/wet/dry before 350ppm.

    There’s a pair of geese who for the last four years come to lay eggs in the window box outside of my office. It has to be global warming. No seriously, instead of nesting in the high open grass in a field next to our complex, or in the woods down below the parking lot where the foxes live, this poor couple of geese are forced by global warming to (make a smart decision) have their chicks (goslings?) way up high where they are safe from predators, and can protect them easily, I know because they also squawk and fly at people walking to and from their cars.
    So in conclusion, I believe the geese have become wiser because of global warming.

  2. If only you hadn’t use air conditioning, Trish, those geese would be less safe.

    Geese are kinda weird. I’ve seen them nesting at Triangle Town Center here in Raleigh on these little grassy islands with trees that are all around the parking lot many times.

    Yes, bad office buildings using power to heat and cool all of us “people”! Oh, and at my home as well…BAD Trish!
    They used to fly south from PA, but now that people are feeding them in parks, farmers fields provide grain and they’ve found out that dumpsters can provide food, they leave for a shorter period of time and are back in early Spring!

    You know, I too am starting to believe in global warming. Instead of in marshes or remote lakes, geese around here are residing on city parks and golf courses.

    Imagine that!!!

    And come on, if that banner on the Sierra glacier is large enough and those believer stay long enough, they could actually help stave off some of the melting by blocking years and years worth of sunshine.

    At least, then they will be doing something… productive.
