The Green New Scam

Last week I got the urge to research the effect of carbon dioxide on global warming. I must have looked at charts on a dozen different websites. What I found was not what I hoped to find. Chart after chart showed CO2 levels rising yearly. My inner brain began to trickle information to the front of my mind. Most notable was a vacation camping trip I took with my kids. We went to Arizona and one of the stops was between Phoenix and Tucson at a place called Biosphere 2. It was intended to be a giant experiment to determine if man could survive in space in a man made atmosphere replicating that of Earth.

Inside Biosphere 2 was a much smaller experiment. In fact, I would call it a tiny experiment showing the result of CO2 on plant growth. Biosphere 2 is a three acre glass topped structure that is hermetically sealed off from Earth’s atmosphere. The tiny experiment was three twenty gallon aquarium tanks set up side by side. Tank 1 had a normal CO2 level, Tank 2 had a generous percentage more CO2, and Tank 3 had a ridiculously high percentage above normal CO2, they all had the same amount of light. The test was to see the effect of CO2 levels on corn growth. In Tank 1 the corn was normal, kind of what we see in the fields near the 4th of July. The CO2 level was increased in Tank 2, and surprisingly the growth was hearty and healthier looking than normal, but in Tank 3 the corn was a shriveled dried up mess. The CO2 level in Tank 3 was increased to double digits above normal. That experiment stuck with me. Rising CO2 levels gives us a an agricultural advantage, and too much CO2 dries up the earth and burns the crops. That is when I put the brakes on writing about the CO2 hoax and global warming.

Then yesterday, the idea light turned on and I got a new insight. In all the charts and articles about global warming there was not a single one that showed a temperature rise on the earth’s surface or atmosphere. If there is such a report the green new dealers are hiding the facts. In order for the Arctic ice caps to melt the air temperature at the pole has to rise. Another thing that is missing is any data that indicates a rise in water levels other than that caused by the tides and the position of the moon relative to Earth. I also remember seeing another shocking video on rising water levels in Venice, Italy. They showed knee high water covering St. Mark’s Square. My God, I thought, is it really happening? A few weeks later I saw another article that explained that the high water in Venice is cyclical, and is attributed to seasonal tides. The news station made a scare piece that would make one believe that the ice caps are melting. The Venetian locals have learned to live with rising water as we will if ever our coastlines begin to go under water. No where have I found one article that takes the opposite approach and identifies a phenomenon that cancels the effect of rising CO2 like what if the hole in the Ozone layer acts as a vent that draws excess CO2 out into the stratosphere? Is no one interested in playing devil’s advocate?

Notice how the hole in the ozone layer hovers over Antarctica, the same spot that will melt away because of rising CO2. Also notice that the hole keeps getting bigger even though earthlings paid the price of changing out freon from air conditioners world-wide.

Another part of my research was to compile a list of cars, trucks, busses, locomotives, ships, and airplanes that contribute to CO2. The worldwide transportation component accounts for 40% of the CO2 load, but I have yet to see a single article about how walking and bicycle riding can reduce CO2. If you want to make a personal contribution break out your trusty Schwinn, air up the tires, oil the chain, and start pedaling. Not only will you reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, you will lose weight, sleep better, and generally be healthier.

Fossil fueled Electricity is the number two contributor to the CO2 load just behind light vehicles. What I don’t see is a projection of how converting cars from fossil fuel to electricity will affect electricity generation. I guess we will worry about that when it actually happens. That conversion is not just a USA problem it is also a world-wide problem. China is of course the world’s largest polluter and is far ahead of where the USA was in the nineteen forties. If the United States worked overtime and created a pollution free atmosphere the air flow around the planet would change out our pure air and mix it with stinky Chinese air. We pay to clean the air, and they continue to pollute. In my mind we are the slaves of the Chinese.

As a kid, I remember very well how polluted the air was on the Southside of Chicago. We had a concentration of steel mills and oil refineries that spewed tons of caustic gasses and ash into the sky, the stink was amazing. We made great strides in eliminating the problem by losing the steel mills to Korea, and the refineries to the gulf coast. We cleaned our atmosphere by worsening someone else’s. As the world becomes more intelligent and uses more computers it also becomes an electrical energy hog. By concentrating on reducing car emissions by converting to electricity we have pushed the electrical generation problem off toward the fantasy of wind and solar, neither of which will suffice. If the politicians were smart they would send China a monthly bill as payment for the U.S.A. filtering their crummy air.

During the nineteen eighties I had to determine why our products were failing in the pristine eastern region of Canada. After microscopic examination of the failed products I determined that the plastic was being attacked chemically. Why and how does that happen in the deepest forests of the continent? Finally, after much study I blamed it on acid rain. How did the rain get loaded with acid so far in the wilderness? The answer was that the air became polluted by smoke pouring out of smoke stacks eight hundred miles away that were modified and made taller to move the pollution away from a population center. The smoke reached a layer of air moving eastward and fell out over the forest where our product was used. The pollutant mixed with the rain and caused the rainfall to be very acidic. An example of one area solving its pollution problem by transferring it to another area. We came to our conclusion after learning that the fish in that area were dying from lake water that was highly acidic.

The air pollution problem is huge and complex. I would like to see a viable solution to it in my life time, but I fear that will not happen. One suggestion that I have is to go backwards in civilization. We must go back to the days when there were no industries, or gasoline gulping cars, and we didn’t need so much electricity. Trash your computers, TV’s, phones, lights, and air conditioners, then, we might be able to make a dent in rising CO2 levels, but will we affect a change on global warming?

In closing, picture this, a world that exists one hundred years from now, and civilization has made the ultimate sacrifice to reduce CO2 levels to normal. Yet, with all that sacrifice the planet has continued to get hotter as it normally does in a cyclical way, and the ice caps have melted anyway. How will we answer to that? We will have wasted a hundred years of human effort causing untold misery on several generations of people on solving the wrong problem. What will the politicians say to that? What will their spin be? WiIl we believe it, or will we buy into what ever bull crap Uncle feeds us, and we drink the cool aid. I for one, would like to be here a hundred years from now to fend off the leaders who will lie their way out of the problem, and blame it all on Trump.

Preaching to the Choir

I know, I know, this will be old news to my readers because you are affected by the same phenomenon, but it will make me feel better to get this off my mind. But really?? Eight dollars a pound for strawberries? Okay, so they are out of season at the moment, and it is a holiday week so the vendor can charge an arm and a leg for something I want, but I think this is pushing the window too far. During the season, that same container of strawberries will cost $1.79 and I will avoid buying because it is too expensive. Imagine what I will do when they are $7.99. Yep, I’ll avoid them and my love for sweetness will have to find something else to satisfy my appetite, like left over Halloween candy. As I write and the stress of seeing that high price begins to flow from my body I am happily gorging on 3 Musketeers and Snickers bites. That is definitely not KETO.

What is the underlying cause of this rising price phenomenon? It is th evil word spelled “i-n-f-l-a-t-i-o-n. “What is inflation in regard to money? Webster defines it as “a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.” Do we understand how the purchasing value of money changes? It’s simply the government printing money to pay its bills. So, if our national budget is a trillion dollars, and Uncle spends a trillion dollars more than he has, and prints a trillion to cover, the dollar just lost half of its value. The seller who once paid $4.00 a pound for strawberries now has to pay eight, for the exact same pound of berries, they didn’t get bigger, they didn’t get sweeter, there are still the same number of berries in the container and you didn’t get a single damned thing more for those extra four dollars because the value of the dollar just shrunk by a hundred percent. The simple problem for you and me is that our pay did not grow accordingly. In the case of a senior citizen like me who lives on a fixed income which means I can’t, or won’t get a raise in pay, inflation is as deadly a as COVID-19.

And, that my friends is why I believe I am preaching to the choir, because the people who can do something about it are not sitting in the same church as you and I. They are sitting in Congress and are deaf to everything but campaign contributions. What is our option? We have to vote the bastards out of office, and that means we have another one to three years to survive, and sadly, some of us won’t make it. In the meantime, we have to vote when we can, and pray that our country doesn’t go bankrupt.

Trial By Television

I didn’t watch the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, but I did read a few headlines about it and of course now I am in overload listening to and reading headlines about this so called unfair trial. The only reason it was unfair is because the people who on the spot proclaimed this young man guilty wanted to see him hang. By their demonstrations they telegraph a message to America that they do not believe our system of justice works. They do not believe the jury was being fair, because they are all racist. I don’t even know if any of the people that were killed in the protest that caused this ruckus were of color. The people protesting don’t believe that this system based on a jury of your peers works. Neither do they believe that the jury must make their decision on the basis of two things, the law, and the evidence presented. The jury cannot make a decision based on a video shown on NBC news or CNN, they can’t make their decision based on news reports published in news papers. They must adhere to that which is presented by lawyers to the jury during the trial, and that the lawyers must adhere to very strict rules in how they can present their case. The judge is there as a referee to make sure every one plays by the rules.

Our unifying president who swore upon his mother’s grave to bring unity to the country has not moved one millimeter towards unifying the country. Instead he prefers to add fuel to the fire. At another time and with another unifying president I remember an incident when a white policeman was ridiculed by President Obama because he did his job and challenged a black college professor that the cop caught breaking into a house. It turned out to be the professor’s home and he had locked himself out. In a move to unify the country Obama reacted by making an insulting comment about the white cops racist action. Eventually, all the facts came out, and we learned that the cop did not know it was the man’s house, the cop did not know the man he caught was a college professor, the cop knew only that he was called to check out a break in. The newspapers had a field day crucifying the policeman and covering for Obama’s too quick reactionary response. The whole thing was papered over by the cop sitting down with Obama over a beer, but only after the news media went over board decrying that America is a racist country.

As long as there are many races of different colors racism will be an issue. It would be nice if we could as a country have a do-over on the matter of slavery. It might be a little bit easier. As it is, leveling out the race issue will take at least two more centuries.
