Countdown to another big climate yawnfest 🥱

PA Pundits - International

By Peter Murphy~

Former Vice President turned nine-figure millionaire, Al Gore, long a global warming celebrity, will be among several speakers next month for a series of “TED Talks” to launch “Countdown,” which is a global initiative to deal with the “climate crisis.” The Countdown is pushing to reduce global carbon emissions in half by 2030 “in the race to a zero carbon world …that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone” (emphasis mine).

No one is against “safer, cleaner and fairer” in the abstract, which is why such terms are used incessantly in commercials, and by interest groups, politicians, salespeople and hucksters alike. I’m especially curious about that word “fairer” when it comes to climate activism. “Fairness” also is a subjective term; one person’s definition of fair is not necessarily another person’s.

From a political or policy standpoint, fairness is about who gets and who pays. The various…

    PAPI: In keeping with the goal of reducing climate emissions by half in ten years, Mr. Gore should announce he is downsizing from his mansion in upscale Belle Meade, Tennessee.

    Are scientists boring speakers? Perhaps, since they comprise only 6 percent of the presenters who will make the case for global warming and transforming our society.

    Is entertainment the objective?
    the speakers’ line-up heavily skews toward activists, entertainers and other non-scientists

    The ‘case for global warming’ is not the point, it’s the attempt to attribute it mainly to humans that is the issue. More disrupting than transforming.

    Fairness, I think, involves ceasing the assets of all members of the Davis Group and its mgt. All assets of Soros and his minions. Ceasing all social media companies and regulating them so that they can censor no more than the phone company does people calling each other.
    Ceasing the assets of all NGOs that spend less than 95% of their income on direct aid to physical projects, or spend more than 1% of their income on lobbying or media.
    Criminal civil rights felony charges on any conspiracy or action to falsify votes with prison and fines of $100,000 per false vote or ballot.
    For starters…

    Global warming, continues to fade.
    And seems Al wants to add meaning to his meaningless life- so, the dumpster diving.
