Climate Delusion: Washington Post Claims More Plant Growth Is Bad

In climate crisis mythology, everything that happens or doesn’t happen is somehow a problem – and it’s always your fault, according to the miserablists.

Is it better or worse to have a global climate that benefits plant growth? The obvious answer would be, better. However, now that it is has been shown that global warming benefits plant growth, climate activists and their media allies want us to believe more plant growth is bad.

The Washington Post is the latest to assert that more plant growth is bad, consistent with other ridiculous claims seeking to advance the alarmist Climate Delusion. In a January 25 article, titled, “We can’t recall the planet if we mess up: Climate change is risky business,” the article’s first asserted example of an ongoing climate crisis is, “The [National Climate Assessment] says there is at least a two-thirds chance that your asthma or hay fever will get worse because of climate change.” (

    Any change is bad, unless pre-approved by the Central Committee.

    Pretty much every debate on every issue is now like this. One side simply refuses to acknowledge that the argument is nuanced, and that benefits (or disbenefits) exist. The Brexit debate was the same. The EU only has benefits, no costs. Climate change only has disbenefits, no costs.

    Its tiring because you simply cannot get any true engagement on the issue.

    What a turnabout since the Egyptians used to worry the Nile would not flood, bringing another harsh drought.

    All this shows is the total lack of real scientific knowledge, which is nor surprising when you look at the universities and colleges here and the US now, or that the whole ‘climate change’ story is nothing more than a front for the likes of Goldman Sachs and the UN to make money off the gullible taxpayers of the developed nations. In fact thinking about it it is both, they can’t have a carbon tax unless they can convince people that the sky is falling.

    Microsoft Strives for a Carbon-Free Future. A Setback in Fargo Shows the Hard Reality.

    Software giant ran diesel generators to power its North Dakota campus due to forces it couldn’t control on the day of its bold climate pledge
    Jan. 30, 2020

    Hours after Microsoft Corp. MSFT -1.48% pledged to eliminate its carbon emissions within a decade earlier this month, the company was forced to fire up fossil fuel generators to power its corporate campus in Fargo, N.D.

    The software giant ran the diesel-burning machines for about five hours to keep the lights and heat on for 1,600 employees. It is one of about 100 big companies in the Fargo region ordered to do so by the local electric cooperative, which faced high demand for power. Microsoft receives a significant discount on its electricity rates in exchange for using backup power a few times a year.

    The problem for Microsoft was entirely of their own choosing.
    They could have chosen to stay properly hooked up to the dependable, reliable and low cost power grid.
    Stockholders in Microsoft and the other many “woke” companies need to hold management and Board Members accountable for their wasting of company resources on wasteful energy choices that damage shareholder values.
