Perhaps it's time to stop the arguing and apply our collective brain power toward what is REALLY happening. The past 300+ years have been in terms of earth's climate both unusual and extraordinary. Among experienced guitar players who electron tube based amplifiers there is a bit of wisdom that goes like this, " Your amp ALWAYS sounds it's best just before it blows up." Having done this myself a couple of times I can say it is true. Perhaps the earth is on a similar path. History and archeology both show that the past 300+ years of earth's climate are indeed a rare occurrence. Prior to that from the last ice age some 12,000+ years ago until the Maunder Minimum, earth's climate was anything but stable. Extreme cold periods to extreme warm periods and everything in between was the norm. Stability of climate IS a rare occurrence. We have been most fortunate to have lived during this period.

Yet, since Einstein, what was once called science has morphed into "scientism", something much more resembling a religion than the discovery of and building upon the facts of things in the physical universe. This is not to blame Einstein but what governments and men have built upon Einstein's work which Einstein himself named THEORIES and maintained basic doubts about his own work. Some men built a devastating bomb based on Einstein's theories and the corruption of science was complete after cosmology, astrophysics and all of physics was subdued. Prior to that Tavistock, Carnagie and Rockefeller corrupted fully and totally subdued the science and practice of medicine. Humanity has now been totally physically and mentally devastated having been enslaved to these and the so-called science of "economics" by way of central banking Keynesian theory.

Today we have a tool called the internet. In the past 20 years the quantity and availability of knowledge has exploded. The powers that be have tried extremely hard to ward off this expansion and spread of knowledge by labeling those pursuing this knowledge and exposing the truths of this world "conspiracy theorists", a derived term from no man's friend or helper, the main control arm of the deep state, the US CIA who initially coined the term "conspiracy theory". Today they are in the final stage of their battle as they have co-opted the national and local media in all it's forms and are now doing what they can to censor and by policy make illegitimate and even illegal dissemination of the knowledge and truths of their activities against humanity. But the flow of this knowledge is much, much greater than they can effectively stop. It really is too late for them.

Some of this knowledge seems, at least for the moment, quite incredible since it flies in the face of all the lies and misinformation we have been taught since kindergarten from schools, parents, movies, TV shows, news media, government. These lies have made the foundation of knowledge in tis society and throughout the western AND eastern world. Yet many in both the east and west have followed a different track,. Scientists who took science seriously and pursued facts and truths instead of fame and grants. Doctors and medical researchers who trust their own research and results more the than government approved BIG Pharma lies and profit-driven entities who are the motivated drivers of allopathic medicine as practiced in the US.

This has been quite the challenge to us to sift through all of these things that fly in the face of we've been taught and what we have practiced over the course of our lifetimes. In a very direct way we are living through a global revolution. Not one fought with armies and weapons of death but one which challenges all that we have built within our minds and hearts and hands over the course of our lives. We fight with ourselves. And as in ANY revolution there will be winners and losers. Lives will be and have been lost by both weapons and ignorance and recalcitrance. We here at GIM II are, so far, the winners/survivors of this revolution. Still, there are many battles engaged now and more to come in the future. The revolution is NOT over. Neither will it be over when, some say IF, Trump buries the deep state and their lies. Funny how words and ideas so outlive men, remaining alive for centuries and even millenia. Yet it is often these words and ideas that are those rooted in the truths and realities of life on this earth and this earth's part in the galaxy and the universe.

Yes, despite the efforts of NASA and NOAA and the IPCC, much truth has come to light concerning our weather, our climate on earth and the processes and energies powering all of this. Much of what we have been taught and much of what is reinforced by daily weather forecasts, news and "authoritative" agencies and voices whose existence and survival are predicated on the lies supporting the powers that be, is indeed mostly ALL lies. This amounts to systemic and systematized error. Not trying to be a Cassandra here, however, the time is NOW to make a concerted effort to root this stuff OUT of your thinking, practice/believing and conversation. We are entering a time when it is imperative that your thinking and action become rooted in facts and truth. I know some are challenged by current political and legal actions of the messy, dirty US government. Fortunately, this thread and this post IS not about politics. The political role here is as all current political endeavors, to build power and pile up money at someone else's expense. That is precisely what ALL IPCC "climate change" lies are about. Fact: You can only counter lies with facts and truth. So, it's time to load up on these.

If you haven't yet, you REALLY need to spend some time and effort to learn the fundamentals of Electric Universe Theory. Our ancient ancestors left a RECORD of events and built civilization around what they OBSERVED in the skies over this earth. What they saw no longer exists over this earth as this earth in this solar system is blasting around the Milky Way galaxy at ~ 77,000MPH. Yeah buddy! We're haulin' balls! Along this journey this solar system is doing two (2) things; 1) we are NOT moving in a straight line. We are moving UP and DOWN crossing an imaginary straight line extending out from the center of the galactic core and, 2) Along this journey we are passing through "clouds" of plasma and cosmic dust/debris.

Here's an "artist's conception" of what the Milky Way galaxy looks like from a top-down view. Remember this pic is based on ALL data collected from numerous satellitites and space missions from NOT just NASA but also from other space agencies around the world...

View attachment 126401

The following picture is also an "artist's conception" of our solar system traveling through "the local cloud" of plasma, dust/debris. Much of the data for this pic is from Russia...

View attachment 126402

In the following video NOTHING, including motion, is to scale. It merely shows the travel of our solar system around the galaxy, the planets following the sun and the going UP and DOWN crossing the galactic plane...


This crossing of the galactic plane AND the various clouds we pass through more than ANYTHING else are what causes "climate change" and brings on ice ages, climate minimums and maximums. These things are what changes the "galactic climate" which affect our sun. Our sun, in turn, must deal with these energies as it distributes them through our little solar system. Sometimes the sun heats up with excessive energies and sometimes our sun cools and must "blow off" un-needed cosmic gak. when the sun "blows off" this gak like in coronal mass ejections (CMEs) this gak is spread throughout our little solar system. Sometimes it's good, more often than not it can be bad for power grids, communication systems and anything else we power with electricity. On much more rare occasions these ejections/expulsions from the sun can be quite horrific taking lives perhaps even causing extinction events.

Ben Davidson of Suspicious0bservers.com has put together a series of videos exploring the history of this solar activity. To date there 24 videos all of various lengths. Very, VERY much worth your time and attention. Here's the link to the playlist:
Sounds really sciency. Must be true.

Does it explain why the upper atmosphere is cooling while lower atmosphere is warming?
Does it explain why nighttimes and winter are warming faster than daytime and summer?

it occurs to me that they are trying to create warming with the aerial spraying. creating blankets to hold the heat in -- instead of letting it radiate back into upper atm

thankfully, they are pathetic failures at it

REPORT: A Massive, Private Climate Change ‘Resiliency’ Program Is On Its Last Legs
The Rockefeller Foundation is planning to pull the plug on its 100 Resilient Cities initiative as early as the summer of 2019, Bloomberg reports.

he 100 Resilient Cities program is the largest privately funded climate change resiliency program in the United States. The Rockefeller Foundation began the program in 2013 with the goal of funneling money into the infrastructure of 100 cities across the world, preparing them to endure the effects of climate change.

The project is shutting down and the Rockefeller Foundation will lay off about 100 people working on the initiative as soon as the summer, sources told Bloomberg.

Now, If we could just get the US Government out of the funding and grant business too that would significantly put the brakes on the Manmade Climate Change issue.

I had just watched the beginning of a new series on Nat. Geo a few days ago. It had continually brought up the dangers of Global Warming. The only things it didn't do was blame man, or admit the Sun has any part in warming.
Then this past week this comes out ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.
The fix as Sam Kenison would say is "MOVE!!! MOVE!!"

Thomas Massie And John Kerry Square Off Over Climate Testimony

Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie and former Secretary of State John Kerry squared off on Twitter on Wednesday after Massie criticized Kerry’s testimony in a climate change hearing. During the House Oversight Committee hearing, which took place Tuesday, Kerry appeared as an expert witness and took questions on the national security threat posed by climate change.

After a heated exchange, Massie took to Twitter to vent his frustrations. “Have you noticed that the scientists who feel most qualified to weigh in on climate science are political scientists?” he tweeted on Wednesday morning. Kerry responded by sharing a tweet from Rolling Stone that mocked Massie, along with his own comment, “It’s almost as if someone said ‘Congress has hit rock bottom’ and Massie replies with ‘hold my beer.'”

Massie fired right back. “It’s almost as if someone said ‘No one has less knowledge of science, a higher opinion of himself, and a bigger carbon footprint than Al Gore’ and Kerry replies ‘hold my champagne, I’m going to testify as a climate change expert,'” Massie tweeted.

Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also testified at Tuesday’s hearing, arguing that climate change is a “threat multiplier” that can dramatically increase the inherent risk of things like natural disasters, military actions and even public health emergencies.

WHAS 840am in Louisville, KY has Leland Conway AM talk show that starts in Louisville 9:00am. From 8:00am - 9:00am Conway broadcasts to WLAP-AM in Lexington where he first started in Kentucky.
Tom Massie is fairly a regular guest for the Lexington broadcast. IDK if Conway carries or re-broadcasts Massie during his Louisville show time.
Massie is even better than this exchange makes him.
I wish we had him as our Congressman instead of Andy Barr.

FYI - Thomas Massie lives off the grid and has been off the grid for 10+ years. His farm land holds numerous solar arays for electricity. He also raises chickens in a solar powered, computer controlled, motorized coop. The coop slowly moves on tires just a few feet on a scheduled program. The chickens get fresh grasses and insects as there is no floor on the mobile coop. The chicken manure does not build up and fertilizes the soil along its path. Plus the set up is predator proof .

Massie is far more green than Kerry's wife's ketchup.

Weather is not climate.
Just because you are cold, does not mean the entire earth has cooled. It's warmer in Alaska and Iceland than Michigan right now.

World hunger has not been solved because I just ate lunch.

The permafrost is still melting. We are still approximately 1c above baseline for the 20th century.
The oceans are rising. 90% of worldwide glaciers are in decline.

Can you explain why the Greenland Ice Sheet has GROWN two consecutive seasons '16-'17 and '17='18 ?

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/09...arently-gains-mass-for-the-2nd-year-in-a-row/
1) There's a 20 year cycle known to affect that particular glacier. So you want to cherry pick not only your favorite glacier on earth but also ignore the last 17 years when it was losing ice at a shocking rate?

2) 90% of the world's glaciers are losing ice and have been doing so for at least a half century.
The rate of ice loss is accelerating, just as the rate of ocean level rise is accelerating.

Provide your source(s) please.
Because the Greenland Ice Pack is recovering and another Climate-Control ship had gotten stuck in ice...AGAIN.

So you want to cherry pick 20 years ?
How about 3 Million years ago when C02 was higher then than it is now. 1/3 of the globe was covered by ice AND Man was not to blame then.

Yet man became a dominate specie and our little machinery is to blame for a crisis that is NOT.

The climate is changing...as it always had. IF the climate changing is the biggest threat to humanity (as we're being told) behind Donald Trump, then why did the Paris Accords do so little to address it other than providing totalitarian leaders the "talking points" which enabled the US and a few other Western countries to be greatly penalized while allowing huge polluters such as China and India to get off scott-free?

It's a ruse my friend...a redistributionist ruse being used by the Marxist globalists to gain more control.

And none of it has anything to do with CO2 or my SUV.

In fact, there is credible evidence that increased CO2 levels in the atmosphere come AFTER the warming, Increased CO2 is the result, not the cause, of "global warming."

It's all about the sun. What else could possibly be causing "global warming" on Mars, that little solar-powered Rover?

...and there's not a damn thing we can do about it other than measure it. Off to get some beans, salami and warm pepsi then park out by the dairy farms to add my indifference with the moo cows. Ready!!??.....grunt/push

It's all about the sun... except that solar radiation has been dropping since the 1970's.
It doesn't even correlate, never mind cause the accelerating global warming.

Yes, co2 levels have risen during past climate changes.
Co2 is both a cause and an effect of climate change. It's a positive feedback loop.
The heat-trapping properties of co2 were quantified in 1860.
Basic elementary chemistry from the time of the civil war. Never been disproven.
Set up a lab and try to replicate Tyndall's experiments.
Oh, never mind, climate skeptics don't do lab research. Or field research.
But they do a lot of conferences and media appearances. ;)

No, if the whole earth warms up on average, it's global warming.

How about Heartland Institute? Even 1 expert in glaciology?

The real issue to me is pollution, industrialization, habitat destruction, war, contamination of food from chemicals etc. Global Warming is a political move by the "Globalist" to consolidate power and tax the world - not fix anything.

The state of the Great Lakes: What to expect from climate change
By Jack Nissen and Karen Hopper Usher | May 24, 2017

Link leads to a typical fear mongering fantasy bullshit.

Forget the fact that not one thing the algore said was going to happen to the Great Lakes has happened, or is happening.
Matter of fact the opposite has happened. We are looking at possibly record high lake levels for 2019.


I agree with Harry:

Harry on November 12, 2017 at 12:23 am said:
You cowardly little morons are so easily manipulated by fear propaganda. Just two years ago you were convinced the great lakes would dry up because that’s what you were told to believe. You’ll beleive anything that scares you that’s how ignorant you truly are. You’re cowards who’ll gladly throw away your childrens quality of life for the benifit of billionairs like Al Gore.

How many scientists does 8-chan have measuring glaciers?
If you want to talk scientists, explain why they have to lie about the "97% of scientists agree with agw" BS that they push? There's no such thing a a 97% consensus among scientists. Not even close.

If Climate Change is de facto science, then why am I forced to believe in it?
"Climate Change" ? What happened so "Global Warming " ? debunked too often ?

How about Heartland Institute? Even 1 expert in glaciology?

You realize the glaciers have been shrinking since before the industrial age, right? There are classical paintings of the Alps from the 1600s that show glacial location and paintings from the early 1700s that show either the glacier retreated OR was gone altogether?

Did you know Captain Cook discovered some glaciers in what is now known as Alaska and the next European explorers to come to the area only several decades later found those same glaciers had retreated by tens of miles?

I did not know that about Cook.
Yes, I know glaciers began to shrink before the industrial age. Axial tilt explains that, for the most part.
Based on the known natural cycles (axial tilt and solar radiation reaching earth, ie Milankovitch cycles), we should be cooling, not warming.
None of the known causes of past climate change explain current warming and melting, never mind why it is happening at an accelerating rate.

And... you're avoiding the question I posed.
Please find me a glaciologist who does not accept human-caused global warming.

I didn't know there was such a thing as a "glacialogist". I did see a video the other day of a congressional testimony by some climate change "dissenters", one who worked with NASA to develop remote sensing technologies for temperature detection and another who is a climate expert at a major university who both attested that the climate is warming slightly, but it's impossible to tell if humans are THE cause. Which is the point...it's impossible to tell if humans are THE cause (versus a component)...because the warming has been going on for so long.

Do we have to go over this again?
Global warming is the increase in average temperatures worldwide.
Climate change includes all the changes to climate, and anthropogenic climate change is human caused.
Scientists use both terms.

George Bush did push the term "climate change" instead of "global warming" in 2000 election, because polling data showed that people thought climate change was less scary than global warming.

It's Official: Human-Caused Climate Change Has Now Reached 'Gold Standard'

DAN ROBITZSKI, FUTURISM
27 FEB 2019
New analysis of 40 years' worth of satellite data shows that it's a near-certainty that humanity is actively causing global climate change.

Climate deniers often claim, in the face of overwhelming evidence, that the planet is heating up and natural disasters are becoming more intense and common just because that's the way it is - incorrectly insisting that humanity's love affair with fossil fuels has nothing to do with it.


Now, scientists say the chances that that's true are just one in a million.

According to the research by scientists at California's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, that's because climate data has now reached a so-called "gold standard" of scientific evidence - there's only a one in a million chance that ongoing climate change could have been caused by anything other than humanity, reports Reuters.

"The narrative out there that scientists don't know the cause of climate change is wrong," Benjamin Santer, the scientist who led the research, told Reuters. "We do."

The scientific research process almost never eradicates uncertainty: researchers test their hypotheses to get a better understanding of the world, but there's almost always some other factor out there that could have impacted their findings.

In other words, a gold standard is not something that's taken lightly.

The new analysis looked at the three largest satellite data sets used by climate scientists. It shows that two of those data sets reached the gold standard of certainty that humanity causes climate change back in 2005, and the third did in 2016.

That level of certainty, highly uncommon in scientific research, makes humanity's impact on the planet very clear. And now we have to figure out what to do about it.

"Humanity cannot afford to ignore such clear signals," reads the analysis.

40 years worth of data. Got it...bam. Solid as a rock. *eye roll*....

The 97% Claim is bogus.
"...the 97 percent claim is authored by John Cook, who runs the popular website SkepticalScience.com, a virtual encyclopedia of arguments trying to defend predictions of catastrophic climate change from all challenges. .....
...Where did most of the 97 percent come from, then? Cook had created a category called “explicit endorsement without quantification”—that is, papers in which the author, by Cook’s admission, did not say whether 1 percent or 50 percent or 100 percent of the warming was caused by man. He had also created a category called “implicit endorsement,” for papers that imply (but don’t say) that there is some man-made global warming and don’t quantify it. In other words, he created two categories that he labeled as endorsing a view that they most certainly didn’t.
The 97 percent claim is a deliberate misrepresentation designed to intimidate the public—and numerous scientists whose papers were classified by Cook protested:

“Cook survey included 10 of my 122 eligible papers. 5/10 were rated incorrectly. 4/5 were rated as endorse rather than neutral.” — Dr. Richard Tol

“That is not an accurate representation of my paper . . .” — Dr. Craig Idso

“Nope . . . it is not an accurate representation.” — Dr. Nir Shaviv

“Cook et al. (2013) is based on a strawman argument . . .” — Dr. Nicola Scafetta

Think about how many times you hear that 97 percent or some similar figure thrown around. It’s based on crude manipulation propagated by people whose ideological agenda it serves. It is a license to intimidate."...
