Climate Weenies Using Apollo Anniversary To Pimp ‘Climate Change’

First there’s John Schwartz at the NY Times, which uses vast amounts of fossil fuels to gather, manufacture, and disseminate the news, especially in a form where trees have been killed to make paper. Though, in fairness, their carbon footprint has gone down since they so often never leave the NY Times building, instead relying upon reading tweets and placing phone calls to find ways to defend Democrats and assail Trump

We Went to the Moon. Why Can’t We Solve Climate Change?

Could a “moon shot” for climate change cool a warming planet?

Fifty years after humans first left bootprints in the lunar dust, it’s an enticing idea. The effort and the commitment of brainpower and money, and the glorious achievement itself, shine as an international example of what people can do when they set their minds to it. The spinoff technologies ended up affecting all of our lives.

So why not do it all over again — but instead of going to another astronomical body and planting a flag, why not save our own planet? Why not face it with the kind of inspiration that John F. Kennedy projected when he stood up at Rice University in 1962 and said “We choose to go to the moon,” and to do such things:

“ … not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win …”

Yes, Schwartz really used that JFK quote to pimp Hotcoldwetdry idiocy. Did I mention that this was not in the opinion section?

But President Kennedy did not have to convince people that the moon existed. In our current political climate, the clear evidence that humans have generated greenhouse gases that are having a powerful effect on climate, and will have a greater effect into the future, has not moved the federal government to act with vigor. And a determined faction even argues that climate change is a hoax, as President Donald Trump has falsely stated at various times.

The evidence is so clear that Schwartz provides none of it.

In 1970, Dr. Logsdon wrote a book, “The Decision to Go to the Moon,” that laid out four conditions that made Apollo possible…..(snip)

What would be the “action-forcing stimulus” for a climate moon shot, he asked? He suggested it would have to be something deeply dramatic and immediate, like “Manhattan going under water.” What’s more, he noted, “Apollo did not require changing human behavior” as fighting climate change would, through the need for measures like carbon taxes or changes in consumption patterns.

Weren’t we told by ABC News that Manhattan would be under water by 2015? And Excitable Jim Hansen said in 1988 that Manhattan’s west side would be under water in 20-40 years, and it is not happening. Further, notice that to push ‘climate change’ would require that Government force change in people’s attitudes and lives. Weird that, right?

Why Apollo 11’s giant leap gives us hope for climate change today

And there’s

And then

Apollo 11 made us believe we could do anything – the truth is it could hasten our downfall

(It spends time telling us technology is bad because we rely on it too much, unlike the 1400’s which the Cult of Climastrology wants to bring us back to)

Part of the reason we don’t is the expectation that technology will save us. If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can develop new antibiotics, replenish the soil and restore the tropical forests. We can stop climate change by building machines to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. (And anyway, we can build walls to keep out the rising seas.) All we need is better politicians.

It’s always something with these people.

      Try again. Race hate and racial incidents are down since the community destroyer left.

      No, it’s as phony as you are.

      trump is unfit to be president.

      No, but you are unfit to be on the Internet.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        “Race hate and racial incidents are down…”

        This would be the appropriate time for you to present your evidence.

        According to the DOJ, hate crimes (including racial hate crimes) increased from 2016 to 2017.

        The number of hate groups (white nationalists, black nationalists, neoNazis, skinheads, KKK, anti-Muslim etc) has been on the rise.

        Sorry, but global warming is as real as tRump’s lust.

    According to the available data racism has declined in America. That’s just a fact even though facts don’t matter to racist leftists who see EVERYBODY else as the racist. I would be willing to advance the idea that racism has increased in minority communities based on the continuous and monotonous barrage of racist accusations forwarded in the press on everybody from Beauty Queens to authors to web sites. Of course anyone who says anything about the Four Screaming Harpies MUST be a racist just like anyone who said anything about Hussein.

    Trump is more fit, more talented, more successful than any president since Reagan and only a brainwashed idiot would say otherwise.

    Trump 2020 Get the illegals and America haters the hell out!!!

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Kye,

    How do you propose to get the “America haters” out? Would you revoke the citizenship of Americans who criticize trump or America? Based on what you know of me, should I be exiled during trump’s second term?

    trump singled out 4 US Representatives, black, Muslim, Hispanic, and lied about them. It was a cynical political stunt and he caught some crap for it, threw his spittle soaked shouters under the bus, then later called them “patriots”. Classic trump.

    • formwiz says:

      Yes and Hell, Yes.

      trump singled out 4 US Representatives, black, Muslim, Hispanic, and lied about them.

      No, as usual, you lie about them.

      Actually, he didn’t. He just said he wasn’t comfortable with it. A lot more honest than most Lefties.

  6. Kye says:

    Listen Elwood, you address me then complain when I respond. Just stop bothering me. Trump “singled out” four Congress people and NEVER MENTIONED THEIR SEX OR RACE!!!! YOU racists did! He was referring to their anti American banter and opinions and YOU and all your commie friends in the media KNOW IT!!! So don’t come here with the “innocent little girls” act cause it won’t work. He told them to fix their own places and THEN come back and tell us how they did whether it be a district like AOC or a country like the Mohammadan terrorist.

    And yes, people like you should be exiled. Not because you hate Trump or me or the guys here but because you Hate America and seemingly always have. We need Americans who want to help not hate America and if that shoe fits you then so be it.

    Trump 2020 Throw the America hating racists out!

    Kye,

    You’re gaslighting. In his awful twits, tRump referred to Congresswomen who should “go back to where they came from”.

    Then his Nazi style rally in NC he was bathed in the adulation of his troops chanting “Send her back!”, after he listed all 4 Congresswomen by name.

    If you don’t see the racism in this, you’re making excuses.

    Senator Sanders is a socialist, and both he and Senator Warren are more liberal than the 4 Congresswomen. So why did tRump single out 4 minority women for ridicule? Puh-lease. It’s like Viagra to old white men.

    Here’s the deal: If you could, you WOULD kill or deport those you and tRump deem to be anti-American.

    • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      The “send her back” chant is as American as it gets — it’s everyday Americans being hilariously inappropriate; poking a hole in the joyless, pompous smugs who responded exactly as they hoped. Harmless fun.

      As always, ther bunny suit lies.

      The man’s exact words

      So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough.

      Then his Nazi style rally in NC he was bathed in the adulation of his troops chanting “Send her back!”, after he listed all 4 Congresswomen by name.

      Wait till you see the Democrat convention next year. Remember they wanted to have a little high sign all to themselves was Idiot Boy was nominated. And they even had a Sieg Heil, “Yes We Can!”.

      If you don’t see the racism in this, you’re making excuses.

      No, it’s not racist because the response in this country to anyone who doesn’t think things are to his liking is, if you don’t like it, leave.

      Applies to white folks, too. Especially the ones who said they were moving to Canuckistan.

      Senator Sanders is a socialist, and both he and Senator Warren are more liberal than the 4 Congresswomen.

      Sure, they are.

      So why did tRump single out 4 minority women for ridicule?

      Because Tom Perez said they were the face of the party.

      Duh.

      Puh-lease.

      Sounds a little queer there.

      It’s like Viagra to old white men.

      Fauxcahontas? Now I know why you like guys.

      Here’s the deal: If you could, you WOULD kill or deport those you and tRump deem to be anti-American.

      And your problem is…?

  9. Nighthawk says:

    The first time I was called a racist in my life was the first time I spoke publicly against Obama and his policies. It has happened numerous times since then, either directly to one of my posts or indirectly because certain individuals/groups paint ALL Republicans/Conservatives/Trump Supporters with the “racist” brush.

    If racism is on the rise in this country it’s only because, no matter what someone says or does, if it involves a minority, it’s racist. Say Obamacare is a disaster? You’re racist! Call AOC an idiot? You’re racist! Refuse to wear a hijab? You’re racist! Tell someone to move aside because they have too many items for the express lane? You’re racist!

    Cue me getting called a racist in 3….2….1….

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Pity the poor white man. You criticizing the ACA was not racism, unless the only reason for your criticism was because President Obama was a black man. Criticizing a Congressperson for their policies is not racism. But Trump picking out 4 women of color to defame was an example of racism.

      It’s not that difficult guys. We all know what tRump is doing: distraction and stroking his base.
