  • Read some of Naomi Klein's works. She straight up calls for rigid, heavy handed, Socialism and Communism as her preferred economic system. She's argued that Progressives should turn land and home owners into renters through high property taxes, and other government regulation to discourage private ownership of land because she argues this makes people more likely to vote a Progressive agenda.

    She's a idiot and ideologue of the far Left who's ideas on economics are so badly disproven you'd have to dig them out of a landfill. Her "solutions" are all massive government, centralized control of the economy, and society, and would destroy the lives of billions if implemented.

    • Research Team Slams Global Warming Data In New Report: "Not Reality... Totally Inconsistent With Credible Temperature Data"

      http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...-inconsistent-


      Still, the larger issue is confusing Nature caused cycles of climate flux, hopefully still on a trend warming away from another "Ice Age" rather than cooling towards such, with false data and models overplaying the human caused factors (which are near negligible).

        • EXCLUSIVE: Al Gore’s Home Devours 34 Times More Electricity Than Average U.S. Household

          EXCERPT:
          On Friday, Al Gore’s sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” – “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” – arrives in movie theaters across the country.

          But there’s another inconvenient sequel worth noting and, like most sequels, this one is even worse than the original.

          Gore’s hypocritical home energy use and “do as I say not as I do” lifestyle has plunged to embarrassing new depths.

          In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

          It gets worse.

          • A Geoengineering ‘Cocktail’ Could Dull the Pain of Climate Change
            Combining multiple climate engineering strategies at the same time could dampen the impacts of global warming while avoiding loses in global precipitation levels.

            • Al Gore's Fiction Sequel Tanks BIGLY!

              Hilarious! Looks like the people are a tad more skeptical about Al Gore's "premonitions". I think we are just getting wiser as a population.

              • Big data finds the Medieval Warm Period – no denial here

                EXCERPTS:
                ...
                According to author Leo Tolstoy, born at the very end of the Little Ice Age, in quite a cold country:
                The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.
                So, our new technical paper in GeoResJ (vol. 14, pages 36-46) will likely be ignored. Because after applying the latest big data technique to six 2,000 year-long proxy-temperature series we cannot confirm that recent warming is anything but natural – what might have occurred anyway, even if there was no industrial revolution.

                Over the last few years, I’ve worked with Dr John Abbot using artificial neural networks (ANN) to forecast monthly rainfall. We now have a bunch of papers in international climate science journals showing these forecasts to be more skilful than output from general circulation models.

                During the past year, we’ve extended this work to estimating what global temperatures would have been during the twentieth century in the absence of human-emission of carbon dioxide.
                ...
                Typical of most such temperature series, it zigzags up and down while showing two rising trends: the first peaks about 1200 AD and corresponds with a period known as the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), while the second peaks in 1980 and then shows decline. In between, is the Little Ice Age (LIA), which according to the Northern Hemisphere composite bottomed-out in 1650 AD. (Of course, the MWP corresponded with a period of generally good harvests in England – when men dressed in tunics and built grand cathedrals with tall spires. It preceded the LIA when there was famine and the Great Plague of London.)
                ...
                There are, however, multiple lines of evidence indicating it was about a degree warmer across Europe during the MWP – corresponding with the 1200 AD rise in our Northern Hemisphere composite. In fact, there are oodles of published technical papers based on proxy records that provide a relatively warm temperature profile for this period. This was before the Little Ice Age when it was too cold to inhabit Greenland.

                The modern inhabitation of Upernavik, in north west Greenland, only began in 1826, which corresponds with the beginning of the industrial age. So, the end of the Little Ice Age corresponds with the beginning of industrialisation. But did industrialisation cause the global warming?...

                        For the irreparably ignorant: The "hills" are glacial maxima. The "valleys" are glacial minima... the periods during which human remains and other archaeological artifacts are natutally exposed. Only a total fracking petard would think that recent glacial retreats were unusual in the overall context of the Holocene.


                        It seems as if the patients are exerting even more control over the mental ward now, than when I disconnected a few months ago.

                          Ever consider that those "human remains" might result from a time "way back" when the glacier wasn't there ???

                          (Or could have been persons trying to cross a glacier and fell into a crevese?)

                            What we are living through today is an organized nation wide attempt to implement the strategies of Anti-American Communist Saul Alinsky as laid out in his book Rules for Radicals.
                            Sen Ranker Recommending Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky If you are not familiar with Alinsky, below are his 8 levels of control needed for a communist/socialist state. Alinsky has been talked about featured and complimented by national leaders of the Democratic Party such as Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton as well as local leaders such as Kevin Ranker who featured Alinksy as a model on his recent speaking tour.
                            According to Alinsky there are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social/communist state.
                            1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
                            2) Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
                            3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes and this will produce more poverty.
                            4) Gun control – Remove people’s ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
                            5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of people’s lives (food, housing and income).
                            6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to; take control of what children learn in school.
                            7) Religion – Remove the belief in God from the government and schools.
                            8) Class warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take from (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
                            One of the fundamentals of the Alinksy implementation model is to isolate and marginalize your enemy. That is what this organized alliance of the Extreme Media (Network news, WA POST, NYT, etc.) the deep state, and the George Soros funded groups are attempting to do to Pres. Trump.

                                Too bad it's not a published paper....you can always find some loons that hold a contrary opinion to established science.

                                Here's a great video from an actual climate scientist that clarifies the issue of "natural cycles."
