Green protests thwarted by cold, rainy weather

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

h/t Daily Caller – Yet another round of green protests seem to be fizzling, as protestors choose to stay warm indoors, protected by the fossil fuel powered conveniences of modern civilisation, rather than braving cold wet conditions outside.

According to the Daily Caller;

Hurricane Joaquin has really put a damper on a number of anti-global warming rallies set for this weekend at several East Coast colleges.

With Joaquin heading north, environmental activists are opting to stay indoors, curl up and read a good book this Friday and Saturday, instead of protesting rallying for more policies to fight global warming. The group Know Tomorrow has planned climate rallies at schools across the country, but cold rain and an oncoming storm likely have many reconsidering.

Several rallies planned at colleges in the Washington, D.C., area have literally no one registered to attend on Facebook or on Know Tomorrow’s website. Rallies at The George Washington University, Howard University and Baltimore’s Morgan State University combined have only two people registered to attend.

In the Boston area, Know Tomorrow’s “Day of Action” with 17 local colleges has been moved from the Boston Common to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel because of the rain and winds, according to Politico.

From the Boston Herald;

TODAY at the RITZ CARLTON! KNOW TOMORROW . . . .

I am teaching Prana Power Yoga™ TODAY at 2pm at a very important event in Boston, and I hope you join me and many others as we come together to KNOW TOMORROW.

To face climate change it’s going to take all of us — a movement in which each and every one of us takes action to motivate our political and business leaders to protect our planet and our society.

TODAY, Bostonians have the opportunity to come together for climate action. KnowTomorrow, a student run organization, is having its local national Day of Action event at the Ritz Carlton on the Boston Common. Join us and enjoy FREE yoga, food and music, while focusing on climate change and the need for all of us to take action

Moving indoors means fewer embarrassing photos of greens protesting against fossil fuels, dressed in petroleum based plastic cold weather goodness.

No doubt though all this unfortunate activist reliance on plastic, artificial heating, and other products of a high tech, fossil fuel powered civilisation will be a thing of the past, once greens start producing nature friendly cold weather gear from their unicorn wool farm.

I am getting way more worried about the Pause and global cooling than I ever was about “global warming” now called Climate Change. We live in a marginal growing area that heavily depends on irrigation and heat units in an average length growing season further restricted by being in a valley. If we lose lets say 75-100 heat units we would lose a lot of ag. and a large industry associated with it that so far provided thousands of jobs and income for many associated industries,. So please Global warming return soon!

Plan to grow barley, oats, and rye. Oats can germinate just above melting point of water as does barley. Kale for greens… can grow in light snow… Oh, and learn to love radishes at 25 to 35 days to harvest… Barley and oats are grown in Alaska, so you ought to be able to do it…

I’ve been growing them for 5 years now at my place and I can verify that the plants survive -35C temps, nasty north winds, blossoms can survive frost and harvest is in June. One of the most nutritious plants going and is good in most soil types.

Buckwheat: The ideal growing temperature is about 70 F and yields best with cool nights.
At least some of the old New England town histories do have local crop information.

Please stop worrying about climate. You will be long dead before any major changes take place, warming or cooling. Your descendents will adapt just as they have for thousands of years. Unless, of course, you get fulfillment from worry. If that is the case then carry on. It seems a little weird though.

Maybe they have Wizard of Ozz syndrome and fear they will melt if exposed to the rain.

Well we can’t have competition between individuals. It would dim the self esteem of those who aren’t up to putting in the hard work . We prefer a more task sharing team spirit, where every team member qualifies for the same grade, regardless of who actually does the work.
That way everybody succeeds and feels good about themselves.

These young people behind Know Tomorrow have grown up with a different definition of Learning guiding K-12 and higher ed. The official definition is now changing values, attitudes, beliefs, or behaviors. A false belief, like CAGW, that motivates and drives desired behaviors IS Learning under this new definition, It is not accidental in the least and the new Next Generation Science Standards will make this far worse as incorrect Virtual Reality images will allow these false perceptions of how the world does and can work to be thoroughly internalized at an unconscious level. I am not speculating. I read all the relevant reports and appendices others ignore to NGSS.
We are deliberately cultivating Know-Nothings to be reliable Agents of Change.

Hopefully while the potential protesters are passing their time, they will be reading the adventures of Prof Shukla and his colleagues comparing it with how Prof Wigwam was chased and condemned for plagiarism of some boiler plate quotation or Willie Soon accused and punished for some minor issues. Prof Shukla and his colleagues are excellent role models for young and future leaders that bastion of knowledge and learning called universities are trying their best to protect.

The cold rain in the eastern USA was not caused by Joaquin, which would have brought conditions warmer than the mid-Atlantic and Northeast USA are experiencing if Joaquin would have come ashore. Instead, the cold rain was caused by a nor’easter unrelated to Joaquin.

This nor’easter which has been blowing here in eastern Virginia for about a week now. Typical fall storm. If the greenies are going to let normal seasonal weather keep them indoors they won’t get out much, specially as winter will be arriving soon. My neighbors who have a crabbing and seafood business OTOH don’t have the luxury of not going to work – in an open boat in 25kt winds.
Joaquin I note this saturday morning is still churning just NE of the Bahamas and having no effect whatsoever on US weather; nor will it have.

“Know Tomorrow?”
So here is another instance of classic climate science where the future is certain, only the past ever changes.
The latter thanks to the continuous data gymnastics of the gatekeepers of GISS and the other land based temperature statistics.
And let’s not forget, Hurricane Joaquin is just another case of incontrovertible proof of global warming/climate change/imminent Thermageddon.
Nevertheless, I still feel sorry for the intense gullibility of these ‘save the planet’ ecolooons. If protest marches are still like they were in my youth, they are a great place to pick up/meet members of the opposite sex.

Oh dear , metered wind power 0.3GW . less than 1% of UK requirements . Thank goodness for the 2GW being sold to us from the 42GW currently being supplied from the nuclear power plants of France.

“PLENTY OF CO2 FOR ALL THE WORLD”S PLANT LIFE FOR MANY YEARS TO COME . 🙂 :-)”
CO2 levels are basically irrelevant to plant growth when there is insufficient water (or too much).

Horticulturists around the world disagree. They enrich CO2 levels in their greenhouses.

Lets be clear, stromatolites were the first organisms to use photosynthesis to make oxygen by some several hundred million years before plants. So, pumping CO2 into a greenhouse allows current food plants to use their food sources, (Light, water, nitrogen and CO2 etc) more efficiently.

More CO2 allows plants to use what water there is more efficiently.

Too much water? tell that to the creeping water primrose on my lake

Then there’s cattails, waterhemp, arrowhead, pondweed etc. (ad nauseum).
CO2 at 400ppm means just as much to them as the trees in my timber acreage or the crops in my tillable land.

Standing in the snow 5 weeks into Autum protesting about Global Warming, are these people brain dead?

Now just who would want to stay cooped-up in their Dorm room all weekend when they can go “partying” at the Ritz Carlton with everything being paid for by “green” donors and government Grants?

These types of climate events are nothing more than cult-like indoctrination and ideological reinforcement of the troops. In addition to the chance to socialize with like-minded climate bots, they get an afternoon of free music, “power yoga” (whatever the heck that is), and snacks.

It rained and was cold up in Boston.
For heat, fossil fuel warms Ritz Carlton.
With the protest on the fritz
they went inside to the Ritz
What Climate Change means they are lost on.

‘Protesting at the Ritz’
Have you seen the well to do
Greens up and down the Avenue
On those famous thoroughfares
With their noses in the air
Raincoats, mittens, pulled up collars
Shivering cold but with lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a bang up protesting time
Now, if you’re green
And don’t know the NGO on which to lean
Then you go where warmth and fashion sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Different types who wear a heavy coat
Rain pants, boots, scarves round the throat
When the weather’s for the shits
Head out to the Ritz
Tryin’ hard to be a climate trooper Specially hard when the weather’s a pooper
Come, let’s mix where DiCaprio sits
Private jets, yachts and mansions
In their mitts
Puttin’ on the Ritz

TODAY, Bostonians have the opportunity to come together for climate action…and the need for all of us to take action

Are these people idiots – what action? Getting together to plan another day of action? Having a day of not charging their cell phones or watching cable television?
My recommendation is getting together and discussing the story of “Chicken little” or “The boy who cried wolf”. Or if they are convinced of the end times getting together to discuss the Biblical “Book of Revelation”. Plenty of woe and punishment for humanities transgressions there. Might even be a few verses that could be interpreted as climate change related.

Having a day of not charging their cell phones or watching cable television?
But how will the protesters tell each other which ones of them showed up in the local cable news blurb? How will they network?
We’ve got to make posters, we’ve got to make signs
But to do so, it seems that we need some supplies.
I need posterboard, I can’t make it myself.
But it’s 10-cents a sheet at the store, it’s on sale,
An example of economy of scale.
(It’s so evil!)

More worrying is that some did see fit to turn out in the Snow to protest Global Warming

October 3, 2015 1:50 pm

The last four days or so our sky here 100 miles north of NYC has been typical grey winter clouds accompanied by a cold rain and howling winter like winds. I am putting up extra wood again this year….. Not directly related to this post but I am really getting angry that so much MSM articles keep using the phrase carbon pollution or reduction of carbon in their stories. CO2 has been sidelined by just Carbon. Ridiculous.

unicorns: the most profitable business ideas of Norman settlers in greenland was the sale of non-African ‘ivory’ on the Norwegian mainland.
Problem:
How do I explain the possession and sale of ‘1’ walrus tooth, a whale rib – ‘1 whale rib’.

I just want to push up the Retail Prices:
1 horn. Unicorn.
