Who’s Up For The Coming Climate Crash?

I’m still waiting for the LA Times to declare they will no longer use fossil fuels to gather and distribute (their dead tree edition) the news

Newsletter: I’m an alarmist on climate change, and you should be too

Good morning. I’m Paul Thornton, and it is Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022. Allow me to be the first half-Norwegian to wish you a happy Leif Erikson Day tomorrow. Let’s look back at the week in Opinion.

Interestingly, Paul fails to mention how he’s given up his own use of fossil fuels and made his life carbon neutral. Even though he’s an alarmist

This week we published an op-ed piece that I wish could run every day — though maybe with a few updates to more fully explore its theme. That piece was Eugene Linden’s ” Hurricane Ian and the coming climate crash,” which focused on the economic disaster looming over South Florida in the wake of Hurricane Ian, as the insurance industry realizes it cannot cover all the claimed losses in an area hit repeatedly by intense storms and pulls out entirely from the market. So the crash, for Linden’s purposes, is economic.

But the term “climate crash” evokes so much more, and appropriately so. The unsustainability of offering home insurance policies in flood and fire zones gets at a particular pocketbook issue — a very important one, sure — but “climate crash” could also apply to long-term climactic instability upon us. For example, consider a new study by climate researchers at the World Weather Attribution Group, which showed that the once-every-400-years drought underway in the Northern Hemisphere can now be expected to occur every 20 years. This is the drought that dried up rivers in Europe and China (which, by the way, is experiencing another heat emergency) and continues to desiccate California and the rest of the western U.S. Once every 20 years isn’t a drought; it’s an aridification that renders our entire water delivery system obsolete and will soon force our retreat from exurban communities and mountain villages that will burn every 10 years instead of once every few generations.

I’d call that a “climate crash.”

There’s no proof, just supposition, that any of that is caused by Mankind outputting greenhouse gases. But, since it’s a cult, they just Believe.

The fires too. Even the spread of diseases similar to COVID-19 and MPX. All are symptoms of a looming ecological and climactic collapse that can only be mitigated by ending our reliance on fossil fuels.

And there you go again, blaming COVID and monkeypox on ‘climate change’. Sigh

It might even turn you into a climate voter, because this country needs a lot more of them. Global warming and democracy’s decline merit top consideration by voters, but the crises are far from the top tier of concerns heading into the 2022 midterms, which are dominated by so-called pocketbook matters like inflation and gas prices. “I get it,” writes Nicholas Goldberg. “People have bills to pay and lives to live. But don’t be fooled. The big threats — especially to American democracy and to the fate of the planet — may seem abstract, but they matter more than ever.” L.A. Times

Doubtful. Poll after poll after poll show that ‘climate change’ is at the bottom of the list when put up against real issues, like the crap economy. Once again, it may be popular in theory, but, not in practice.

    Wait, so how many predictions to eventually add to the list of gloom and doom that never happened did he squeeze in there? A “new study” by “climate researchers”? World Weather Attribution Group are only doing the work that media alarmists used to do following any weather event, immediately blame man made warming with no evidence save their already made-up minds. Except they do it with more impressive letters after their names. When they get called out by actual scientists about their claims, they soften their rhetoric but by then it doesn’t matter. As the old adage goes, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” But following a weather event that doesn’t fit their narrative, oh, that’s just weather as opposed to climate. I encourage taking anything they say with a grain of salt and doing your own checking, and of course, follow the money.

    Let me guess – yet another “climate model”? That sounds like a real iffy hypothesis.

    Deniers should just relax.

    Taxpayers will pay to rebuild FL so Hurricane Barron can destroy her again in 2 years. Taxpayers will upgrade the TX energy infrastructure so that only 941 Texans will die in the Great Blizzard of 2024. Taxpayers will finance the water infrastructures of southern CA, AZ, NV etc so people can turn their piece of the desert into a finely trimmed lawn. We’ll build walls, seawalls that is, around Florida, NYC, Boston.

    The world’s peoples will adjust to floods, hurricanes, desertification, heat waves, wildfires, melting permafrost.

      the only deniers are those who deny MMGW is a scam.

      Conservatives will thank you for realizing it is cheaper to remedy these events as they occur than to destroy our entire economy and nation of your magical religion. We should not have to support your religion. It’s in the Constitution.


      P.S. You forgot New Orleans etc. for walls and New England etc for deadly snow falls.

      With you radicals every weather event is a climate emergency.

    Then again, to some of us, “doing our own checking” means checking to see which way the wind is blowing or what the party line is that day…

    “The world’s people’s will adjust to floods, hurricanes, desertification, heatwaves, wildfires and melting permafrost..”
    Gee, thanks. You like the world’s peoples have always done? With comparatively less technology and brain power than in times past? Scary…By the way, any evidence those listed events above are getting worse or that “sea walls” will need to be built? Didn’t think so….
