Monday Mirthiness: A ‘psychic’ view of climate change

Psychic Medium Ian Scott writes via our “submit story” link:

Climate Change Please Use Common Sense.

Climate change, global warming the heated debate goes on and on. A handful of scientists say one thing and a handful of scientists say another ? which scientists do we believe ? “none of them”. Lets all use our common sense, “I know” many of you are now asking what’s that.

A Climate Change Skeptic ?

Earth is a living breathing organism just like any other living thing, it feels, it hurts, it cries, it grows and changes. If we remove all minerals and metals from any living thing will it survive ?. If we drill enormous holes in any living thing and withdraw it’s fluid constantly, I ask you, will it live ? the common sense answer is, of course not. Scientists words are not gospel they can be paid off just like anyone else to say whatever suits their or their payee’s purposes. The governments answer to tax and throw money at it, is futile, the corporations ( banks, electricity, mainstream media, ) run this world and the biggest ones are the oil company’s they literally hold everyone on the planet to ransom. Oil has been the cause of many wars on earth including the ones happening now.

Unfortunately we are all powerless against these corporations as they hold the influence in governments and now with the TPP they will literally own the governments. This is where all the false reports come from it is very similar to a handful ( not all ) of viral posts or viral youtube videos, the more money you have the more views or lies you can afford. Unfortunately money, greed and power are the goals of most people on the planet, “money makes the world go round” well yes it does, in a world of money, greed and power. With enough money you can make people believe anything you want them to.

Climate Change Conspiracy

Every living being on the planet should understand this common sense factor about global warming, it should not take any guessing and trying to prove anything from anybody, scientist or not. It does not take a genius or psychic for that matter to comprehend the damage we are doing to the earth. Now the solution is as many of us know already is free and renewable energy but the corporations hold this from us too. Climate change has effects on humans, animals, plants and all living things. If common sense is used these corporations paying millions to make us believe climate change is not real, will go broke trying. © by psychic medium Ian Scott

“With enough money you can make people believe anything you want them to.”
So let’s calculate how much money it would require for Mr. Ian Scott to believe that “Earth is a living breathing organism just like any other living thing, it feels, it hurts, it cries, it grows and changes.” A quick calculation…
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-1FOP3gO5UPg/UA2DsXc55XI/AAAAAAAAAIc/qtaptkS0ihI/s1600/proof.gif
and you can see that it would require slightly more than one Money Bin’s worth of money to make someone believe this. For those of you that don’t know how much a Money Bin’s worth of cash is, here is an accurate depiction:

So, like, it’s precisely those hive-bozo, eco-emetic retch-boogers, like the one in the topside post, that have literally turned me into a chronic commode-hugger (BARF!!!–I’m sorry…yes…yes…I feel much better now…thank you) and that have made of the blogosphere a veritable, greenwashed vomitorium for millions of hapless, up-chucker victims, just like moi. Speakin’ of which, there’s a disturbing rumor goin’ around the web that a video of that infamous, and until recently thought apocryphal, bump-and-grind, thong-event spectacle Eli Rabett made of himself at last year’s “Cookie-Tossers Festival”, hosted by the “Bulemics for Gaia” community, that reportedly clinched, for him, his upset big-win of the the “Mr. Gag-Reflex” title, thus ending David Appell’s two-decade winning “streak” in that competition, which, in turn, reportedly, had ol’ Dave throwin’ a totally age-inappropriate, big-baby, sore-loser temper-tantrum (tough titty, Dave!). And let me just say that if that video shows up without a trigger-warning in the header, I’m gonna sue every Gaia-freak geek-ball in the Galaxy under the RICO statute!

Bruce Cobb

Holy toledo. I don’t think the guy has a brain, nuch less common sense.

This guy has no idea what is talking about, he says
Quote: “money makes the world go round” well yes it does/end quote.
Fact that our planet is turning around its axes has nothing to do with money, which was invented more than 4.5 billion years ago before our it started.
He needs to learn few facts::
All planetary and stellar systems are born from the collapse of dense interstellar clouds. As an interstellar cloud collapses, it fragments each collapsing independently and each carrying part of the original angular momentum. The rotating clouds flatten into protostellar disks, out of which individual stars and their planets form.
The very slight rotation that the cloud has in the beginning is increased dramatically when the collapse takes place (conservation of angular momentum). Planets form from material in this disk, through accretion of smaller particles. The dynamics of a rotating body is of course controlled by forces like gravity Kepler’s laws are a direct consequence of gravity.
Angular momentum is given by L=m*w*r2 where m is the mass, w is the angular velocity in radians per second, and r is the radius of the circular motion.
So there it is. /sark

Then there is this little tid bit
================================================

================================================
Wonder if Psychic Medium Ian Scott saw this coming
================================================
“Now the solution is as many of us know already is free and renewable energy but the corporations hold this from us too”
================================================
I wonder what makes Ian Scott think that??? If “Free (affordable) and Renewable Energy” (beyond current 25% capacity factor Solar production and 30% capacity factor Wind production both of which require 10’s of thousands of acres to produce the same quantity of electricity that a single 12 acre Nuclear facility can) were even remotely available is there any corporation in the world that could effectively “Hold this from us too”??
The missing caveat to his factors is the necessity of “Affordable” as there is no such thing as “Free Energy” and current renewables are far more costly than traditional sources.

Javert Chip

I assumed this was sarcasm. If “Psychic Medium Ian Scott” is for real, YEEEECHHHK!

Leonard Lane

My Psychic told me that CO2 and leftist politics would cause a million degrees heating of the earth’s surface, but we could all escape if we grew wings and feathers and flew up to the tops of the higher mountains where it would remain cooler. I am so upset, I made an appointment for next week.

You have a weird psychic where do hang out ! What has someone’s polical stance got to do anything do love to have fight have a vilian do you like yourself
[Site policy forbids duplicate user-ID’s for the same person. Stop it. Use your name, and no other name. Stop the petty insults as well – they do not make the case you intend to convince other readers to follow. .mod]

Try writing a real opinion attacking is for children is everyone on this hateful and negative not allowing others to have a point of view.

You gave your point of view … now we are giving ours.
Also, did you forget that sentences begin with capitals and end with periods?

MarkW

Interesting. Disagreeing with you is the same thing as not allowing you to have an opinion.
In other words, no one is allowed to express an opinion that differs from yours, because that would mean you can’t have an opinion.
To conclude, no one else is permitted to have an opinion. Once you have stated yours we are obligated to either agree with you, or remain quiet.

Eustace Cranch

Mr. Scott, it’s easy to fling around touchy-feely catch phrases and paint with a broad brush. How about offering some details? Define “greed” and give us some specific examples. Explain to us exactly how corporations “run the world” and again give some examples. How exactly do corporations control your life personally? Because I can’t think of a corporation I’m unable to walk away from if I choose. If you don’t like how the world works- tell us, how would you have it work? What’s your alternative to those evil corporations?
And about that “free” renewable energy- show us the math & physics. I think you’ve fallen into that trap of thinking that “taking someone’s word for it” and “knowing” are the same thing.

Hello love the use of words you have, excellent. It’s just an opinion piece it’s worth nothing. But it helps us to think and see another’s point of view. Greed is having everything and as much as you can have but still are wanting more. Greed is not helping others who live in the same home as you earth. I could go on but… it’s not worth it.
free energy my friend comes from the sun. No hocus pocus alien machine.
Corporations have money lots of it, if they want something they have it, right or wrong. Thank you for commenting

Bernie

Bwahahahaha. glurg. snork!

Now that I’ve regained my composure, this reminds me of a sermon I heard back in the ’60s.
“Now everybody knows the earth turns on a giant axis that God put there. Man thinks he is so smart because he can drill down in the earth and pump out the oil and use that. Now you tell me what will happen when those axis run dry? The whole dang thing will grind to a halt, that’s what will happen. It is common sense; plain as day.”

ShrNfr

Will Guam flip over due to the sudden stop? Inquiring minds want to know.

Bryan A

It would be Maug if it did

Very good you are correct but not with details that all sounds a bit silly to me

“Will Guam capsize?”
Two interesting things to consider: (1) the officer giving testimony before the committee simply blinked once — hard — and calmly assured the Congressman that, no, islands do not tend to flip over if they get too top-heavy and (b) most importantly, Congressman Johnson (how I cringe that I share the same surname) continues to be re-elected. While the military officer has, by now, no doubt, retired to a miniscule pension, that genius behind the microphone will probably have millions when he finally decides to leave Congress. That, my fellow Americans (and observing others), is the “climate change” adventure in another guise.
Somebody hand me a beer and some extra-salty peanuts. If I have to watch that show, I might as well get comfortable.

..Hey, if he’s psychic, why didn’t he tell us this 10 years ago ?? D’oh ..!!

Mike McMillan

He was still in grade school.

James Francisco

Marcus. You reminded me about a headline you never see and that is…psychic wins lottery.

They all the time they just don’t tell anyone. Why would call attention to yourself like that what a silly comment

I did and have been for over 30 years now it is a shame I have to enter negativity to express my view. And get noticed.

Getting yourself ‘noticed’ is not what your are in desperate need of.

James Bull

Or the old gag about the psychic conference being cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
James Bull

Or because I’m short in stature it would be small medium at large

UK Sceptic

30 years? So tell me, was it tea leaves? Goat entrails? Which end of a wall a snail crawls up? What you’re experiencing here isn’t negativity, it’s reality. Comes as a shock to you apparently.

MarkW

When you say stupid things, expect to get laughed at.
Only children believe they have a right to have everyone agree with them.

Negative people will always find something to fight about it’s all they see. Children do the same

Well you can’t argue with that logic! Sign me up!

The heck with that, I want the power ball numbers.

Which begs the question, “How many times has he hit the lotto?”

If Greed money and power is what you want stay negative and think that is the answer to a happy life.

Bryan A

Funny thing is, most psychics want that too. Hence the bimonthly readings at $49.95 each and monthly astrological charts at $100.00 per.

UK Sceptic

And what you’re doing, basically calling us names because we don’t agree with your pseudo-intellectual blather, isn’t negative in any way?
Hypocrite!

No not at all just having fun with you guys over there in intellectual land

MarkW

Notice how people who say stupid things are the first to complain that others aren’t being nice to them.

he he thank you for helping my cause by commenting silly billy

JohnWho

“Man with crystal balls should not sit down quickly on a concrete bench.”
Now, that’s common sense properly applied.

Resourceguy

This is psychic positioning for a spot in the next administration. The current crop of psychics with executive orders is moving on to the next golden ring.

At least he honestly identifes himself as a psychic instead of using computers and models to claim he’s a scientist.

BFL

+100!!

Now that’s funny.

But he’s a *psychic*! Which means that the doesn’t have to have those non-organic, anti-natural things like “computers” or “models” and certainly, like, you know, “scientists.” Don’t you understand, man? It’s all about feelings and self-revealed “truth”! Get with it or get off the planet, man!

Thank you

Bryan A

Not meaning to be negative Scott. I have certainly known of 2 people with predictive ability one of which was my grandmother. Problem is, most times (998 out of 1000) when people see the term Psychic used, it is generally followed by “…reading $49.95” and so very little credence is given for the claim of ability. It is almost always seen as a Scam where people send you pages of documents containing astrological charts with various unrecognizable symbols representing planetary alignments and zodiacal houses then include a bill for $100.00 or more. Nothing personal though

Yes that’s so sad check my site I don’t do any of that it’s all free. I can only speak for myself and there good and bad people in everything

Bryan A

Nothing personal Scott. Most of the time when psychic is used, it is often seen in the same realm as Snake Oil remedies. 998 times out of 1000 the purported psychic just wants your money. Like those that will sell you an astrological chart containing zodiacal houses and related planetary alignments with a bill for $100 or more. While I have known 2 people with true predictive ability, I have known far too many that appear to be in it just for the money. Again nothing against you personal, just purported psychics in general.

It’s Ok my intent was to create exactly this. I knew because I’m psychic the readers of this site would react this way. Giving a platform for my way of seeing things to reach others, I got a great link out of it, and people are visiting my site. I thank wuwt for their exposure. I would say on my part I succeeded in my magic, you can learn it @ my website.

UK Sceptic

I take it you don’t “get” sarcasm either.

Yes I do thank you

MarkW

You really thought that was a compliment?
Not much of a psychic.

Oh having fun with you guys over there in serious intellectual land chill out my man

Robert Austin

Is this Ian Scott genuine or is this just a parody of the abysmal ignorance and stupidity of the Kumbaya green set.

Smart Rock

Check out his link. He does appear to be what he says he is, a psychic. This is the kind of thing that happens when a society gets rich enough so lots of people don’t actually have to do anything to feed, clothe and house the rest of society.
As they used to say when I was growing up in England “it keeps them off the streets”
Thanks, Anthony for a little light entertainment!! Makes a nice change from stuff that makes us angry.

CaligulaJones

“He does appear to be what he says he is, a psychic”
Every so often here in Toronto, the police bust psychics. I’ve never really be able to understand how they can bust some, yet I can walk past people who actually advertise they are psychic.
Maybe they really are, in that they can see the cops coming…

gnomish

in Berzerkley they license psychics – the gov protects you from the flybynight kind, right?

Yes you can find me at my website there is a link in the article

Every living being on the planet should understand this common sense factor about global warming

Does he include viruses in that, or only bacteria upwards.

Pat from country Vic

Your remark is offensive and discriminatory to amino acids and, in fact, all carbon based molecules.

I’m afraid the “sense” exhibited here is more “common” than you might think.

Rick Myer

I think he makes about as much sense as any of the climate “scientists”

“…Every living being on the planet should understand this common sense factor about global warming, it should not take any guessing and trying to prove anything from anybody, scientist or not. It does not take a genius or psychic for that matter to comprehend the damage we are doing to the earth…”

When a psychic can’t see or Predict the basics…
The Earth is 8,000 miles, (12,875km), in diameter.
The largest or deepest mines barely scratch this surface. Mineral deposits can be found down to 25 miles, (40km).
Man has mostly confined themselves to obvious surface deposits. There are far more deposits hidden in the Earth than man can understand.
All water, metals, minerals are eventually recycled. If not by man, then by tectonics. Only those tiny things we send into space escape recycling, temporarily.
Any CO2 mankind sends into the air will be converted back into sugars and starches by plants.
Ian Scott’s claims regarding damage we are doing to Earth are imaginary. What is obvious is Scott’s deep depression belief that man causes damage to Earth. Earth is so large, compared to all of mankind that Earth barely notices mankind.

“…Now the solution is as many of us know already is free and renewable energy but the corporations hold this from us too…”

Perpetual energy machines have proven false time and again. Claiming that there is such a thing as ‘free’ or ‘renewable’ energy is incredibly childish and ignorant.
What the eco-loons call ‘renewable’ or ‘free’ is available only at great expense requiring heavy industry efforts of mining, smelting, refining, machining, construction, fabrication, development, testing and maintenance.
Yet, virtually all of the heavy industries are unable to rely upon allegedly ‘renewable’ energy as the sources are unable to control output.
Only a fool, a psychic, a Socialist, or an ‘Occupy Wall Street member’ believes Corporations have any responsibility for withholding such technology. Even Politicians realize that solar and wind require substantial subsidies to entice businesses into such risky investments.

MarkW

Back in the 70’s, the tin foil hat crowd was claiming that there was a 100mpg carburetor, but the oil companies had bought up the patent and were sitting on it.
I think Ian comes from the same clan.

Marcus

..But there is a 100 mpg “carb burn eater”….It’s called a 12 speed bike and a lot of really cold water !

BFL

Well there is that 376 mpg Opel supposedly certified by Guinness, but wouldn’t want to drive it to work daily. And it’s available for only $425,000. Smokey Yunick also was able to get high mileage rates by using preheated/vaporized gasoline but apparently the lean mixture was rather hard on engine components and nothing ever came of it.
http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1089107_opel-p1-376-mpg-record-holder-still-for-sale-at-425000
http://www.376mpg.com/

@marcus… Time for an upgrade. Back in the day, a 12 speed was the hot setup. But now that we have 10 and 11 cog cassettes from Shimano, SRAM, and Compagnolo, 20 and 22 speed bikes are the norm, or 30 and 33 speeds with a triple crankset. On a good day, I can burn upwards of 1000 calories per hour @ 25 mph, which works out to be about 775 mpg (assuming 31,000 calories to a gallon of gas, and assuming that I could drink the stuff)

David Smith

Thomas,
I’ve built my own fixie and chuck it around the centre of London. The ever present feeling of being a hair’s breadth away from a painful death under the wheels of a bus, cab, or truck helps to keep my weight down – I find the intense fear a good bowel loosener. I have to say, I love it.
I find gears an unnecessary distraction.

James Francisco

I heard the 100 mpg story in the 60s. Some versions said the auto manufactures bought the rights and we’re just sitting on them. I was around 10 years old and knew that was BS then. What a world savior he or she would be if there was such a thing. Does any sain person think that an inventor of such a device would allow a world saving device to go unused?

Leo Smith

100mpg is perfectly possible, if the drag factor is right and the engine is right
Nothing to do with the carburettor though

Free energy comes from wind and solar not some et made up free energy thing you are all going on about. Weird

Jtom

If solar and wind deliver free energy, then why are you still on the grid???

Patrick MJD

On my way to work today, at a green light crossing for us pleb peds, a cyclist rode right across in front of me. And they wonder why they get abused. I have a solution for that…and the cyclist won’t like it!

Takes a fool to recognize a fool

Who didn’t see that coming? Interesting that a flood is climate change—I distinctly remember floods clear back to when I was 6 or 7 and we were drying out my grandfather’s basement after a flood. He lived close to the river and it happened now and then. No one yelled “global warming” or anything like that—just “Where’s the mop?” Then there was the massive 1993 flood of the Midwest that lasted for weeks. No “global warming” chant there either. Was there some magical event that suddenly made global warming the cause of everything? If so, that’s not science—I think that would make it a god and then it would be religion.
Anyway, Paris might want to come up with a serious evacuation plan for the future since even believers admitted there is no real effort by the world to stop increasing CO2, and it’s doubtful there ever will be and it may not help. So pay out some bucks and get a plan.

I recently saw a post on instagram showing the various flood levels from historical floods in Paris. The current one was near the bottom.

Dougmilne

Yes Millie, that old saying “money being the root of all evil” is as real today as it was yesteryear.

Again, talking about a changing climate, that is correct, but talking about “climate change due to human CO2 emissions”, not so correct.

Earth is a living breathing organism just like any other living thing, it feels, it hurts, it cries, it grows and changes. If we remove all minerals and metals from any living thing will it survive ?

This planet was fine and dandy before we got here and will be fine and dandy long after we’re gone. I’d recommend this psychic try channeling George Carlin.
http://www.icomedytv.com/Comedy-Videos/ID/335/George-Carlin–The-Planet-Is-Fine-Transcript-0739.aspx

This psychic was clearly channelling Arthur Conan Doyle, whose book “when the Earth screamed” has Professor Challenger hurt the Earth (in order to get its attention) by drilling.
If the Earth is indeed growing, then we need to kill it before the resulting earthquakes destroy us.

Cutting down 1000s of trees, filling the ground and ocean floor with concrete,covering sq miles of land with solar panels, killing thousands of birds a year with bird choppers and getting zero benefit is ok with this nut?

When did I say that do your research before making such strange bs. Check my website.

Really, I thought it was something Anthony ran across that he forgot to publish on April first.

No, there are a surprising number of at apparently sincere people who think this way. Whether it’s sincerity or just lucrative is hard to say, but they are out there.

Javert Chip

Even dim-witted and poorly educated people want to be “relevant”; nobody likes being useless just because they know or have achieved absolutely nothing. There are a variety of ways to accomplish this:
1) Claim a Nobel prize without actually winning it
2) Run for president (2016 USA only)
3) Tattoos. Lots of Tattoos
4) Dye your hair various glow-in-the-dark colors
5) Be a psychic
6) Correct other people’s grammar & punctuation in web postings
7) Do a climate model and/or study

Ha Ha your funny the world laughs at your jokes your ego is now stroked and at his expense you feel smarter, congratulations

John Robertson

Well the Team UN IPCC TM changed the common definition of science.
So why not “Common Sense”?
As noted above this kind of emoting is all too common these days.
In fact there was a lovely obituary written for Common Sense running loose on the internet a few years back.
Hans Christian Anderson wrote this tale all too well decades ago, shame school children do not get to read “The Emperors New Clothes” anymore.
“Everybody knows” is one of those certainties, you can be certain the speaker has never given it a moments thought.
In my opinion, belief in an animate planet, being convinced of CAGW as a fact, are clear indicators of character.
Banishment is the only just punishment for fools of this calibre.
There really are people ,too dangerous to be loose in your community.
When the true costs of this mass hysteria are compiled, somebody is going to pay..That is just the way we are.
Hopefully we will scapegoat the right fools and bandits this time around.

Common sense tells me that psychic mediums are not to be believed…just like AGW zealots.

ferdberple

Now the solution is as many of us know already is free and renewable energy but the corporations hold this from us too.
=====================
Why doesn’t Google give us all free energy over the Internet? Think of all the new customers they would get with their free energy. The advertising revenues from AdWords would more than pay for the energy.
All we would need to do is plug our cell phones into the cigarette lighter in the car, and tune in Google on the Internet. With all that fee energy we could drive forever in our electric cars, and put the evil oil companies out of business overnight.
The problem is obviously Google. They are holding this free energy from us.

Didn’t Google give up on renewables?

Free energy comes form the sun

mike

Yr: “Free energy comes from the sun”
Well Thrive-On, I mean, like, that’s a kick-butt zinger-comeback, if ever I heard one. But I’m a little confused, here. I mean, like, you speak like a “regular-guy” Oz-dude, and everything, while Tom O., in contrast, favors a more up-tight, big-bore sort of utilitarian, carping bot-speak, as the vehicle for his quip-mongering. And then there’s Psychic Medium Ian Scott’s manner of speech–a painstakingly-constructed, stilted, pseudo-oracular gibberish, of a quirky sort that your standard-issue, generic dumb-kid just might mistake for a simultaneous, Babelfish translation of the Enochian. So what’s the deal here, anyway? I mean, like, you three are all the same guy, aren’t you?–aren’t you?

Patrick MJD

It is called COAL! Free, ultra concentrated, sunlight! Just have to dig it up and use it!

MarkW

The energy is free, however the collector is hideously expensive.

Hey, can I get published, too? You or I could do better.

If we remove all minerals and metals from any living thing will it survive ?
===============
how about mercury amalgam? Is it OK to remove this from the earth? Why do we remove it from people’s teeth?
And what about Arsenic? Should we remove this from the earth? It is poisonous living things, so it must also be poisonous to the earth? If we leave it in the Earth won’t it kill the earth?
And what about Lead? Doesn’t this cause brain damage? Is the Earth brain damaged as a result of all the lead left in the ground?

Marcus

..Are psychics eligible for government grants to study “Glo.Bull Warming” ? Why should they have to do a study if they are psychic ? Shouldn’t they already know ?

Well… if science don’t work, bring in the mystics. I guess.
Just as an aside, I see that some comments were deleted because of some cursing or inappropriate words. Whatever happened, I think I understand. When “arguments” such as these are put forward, the choices are to [a] kick the cat (which annoys the wife), [b] curse a blue streak (which annoys the neighbors, and the wife), or [c] sit back, take a long drink of an alcoholic beverage and think about a nice, warm beach filled with women who cannot be bothered to wear very much in the way of clothing because, you know, global warming.

Yeah science is guessing and mishaps anyway bring the real people in

The silly thing is that ALL the cultural relativists subscribe to the notion that this guy has the right to his view and should be coddled not shamed. Further, he has a point about corporations suppressing our access to free or at least low cost renewable energy. AND if you think that his scheduled hormone therapy and surgery is a crazy permutation of what we used to think of as medical science you are simply a troglodyte denier right wing conspiracy theory believing fellow traveler of some nasty hater group and SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

Actually,$40 a barrel oil ain’t half bad. Compares to $20+ in 1970. The price of gasoline back then was %1.76 in 1970. Considering they’ve raised the gas tax from about 5 cents to 85 cents gas is still a bit cheaper.
As commonsense tells us, there’s no sense in nonsense, just as there’s no sense in most opinions. Just ask two win kinda sewers.

I’m a bit mystified. I admit I don’t follow his “logic” too well, and I certainly don’t believe much of his argument, but it occurs to me that the comments, for the most part, have me wondering as to who is the most bigoted and to who is the most unreasonable. I don’t agree with Ian, and I doubt that this work of his is in anyway prophetic – although it is someone pathetic. However, I really don’t think he deserves the derisive attacks that most of the comments are. Freedom of speech is, after all, freedom of speech. There is nothing that says you can’t disagree with him, but why pile of the deriding and malicious comments? Is that the qualities that “skeptics” display best? It seems to be the ones displayed most often.

Tom O

That’s “pile on,” not pile of.

“Pile of” seems about right, Tom, for Thrive On News and psychic medium Ian Scott.

” I certainly don’t believe much of his argument…”
I’m curious as to the parts you do “believe”.
His writing appears “all” fabricated to me.

Michael 2

Tom O “…me wondering as to who is the most bigoted and to who is the most unreasonable.”
Perhaps I am, depending on how such things are measured and to whom it matters. But bigot is such a limiting word suggesting a capacity for only two ways of looking at something. Better yet is “polygot.”
This is a science blog, more or less. Readers here are probably not reading other points of view so occasionally it is worthwhile to bring one of those points of view HERE to avoid the echo chamber syndrome that plagues so many blogs.
It is refreshing to escape the binary language of moisture vaporators (us versus them); to read an entirely different viewpoint that helps re-calibrate our sympathies to relatively more normal CAGW believers that worry about simply running out of oil rather than anthropomorphizing the Earth.
I got three paragraphs into this piece, eyebrows raised, before I burst out laughing. I do actually have some empathy for Earth itself and a metaphor of a living thing is worthwhile when not carried to an extreme. It is just as easy to consider Earth a *fruit* and the oil and coal a *gift* to mankind; to fail to use these gifts would be an *insult* to mother Earth.

MarkW

What happened to my freedom of speech? I can no longer call BS when BS is obvious?

MarkW

One of the problems with leaving your mind open, is that if you are not careful, your brains just might fall out.

JohnKnight

Tom,
“There is nothing that says you can’t disagree with him, but why pile of the deriding and malicious comments?”
Mr. Scott himself makes several deriding and malicious comments (predominately toward anyone who is even skeptical of the climate alarmist attitude, and some to humans in general; i.e.~ Unfortunately money, greed and power are the goals of most people on the planet”) . . so, why exactly does he not “deserve” what he got here?
You remind me of SJWs spouting all manner of hateful things about all sorts of people, and then shouting “hate speech” when someone reacts negatively . .
I suspect you are part of the recent drive to censor the internet, frankly.

It’s Ok I really don’t mind it shows exactly what we are dealing with on climate change hateful negative afraid to loose their business people in fear.

MarkW

Why is it that so many people who advocate for renewable energy, are unable to write coherent sentences?

Javert Chip

Tom
Wow! your PC orgasm just about knocked me over.
Unlike George Mason’s Shula, nobody on this thread is proposing to RICO Scott for his speech.
Freedom of speech is fine; we’re just amazed at Scott’s breath taking display of freedom of stupid.

Thank you so much, it’s quite ok I did this knowing full well what would happen, I’m a psychic right ! I get it you believe this I believe that who cares live with each other. If don’t have to fight or hate something or someone just because they don’t believe what we do. Everybody has a right to have their own beliefs and that should respected no matter what we do or believe in. Nor what colour, race or creed we are from.
A plant is a living thing agree yes you sort of have to. Then in my wildest imagination I can’t understand how you can not believe earth is alive, this is common sense. Love and Light Ian Scott

It’s in YOUR mind/imagination that the earth is alive. The earth has no concept of what it is, not what lives on it. It has no idea that it will be consumed by a start that is consuming it’s fuel and will eventually FAIL! Not only do you not know much about this rock you IMAGINE has some “feeling” you also have no idea about solar systems, or anything actually outside your IMAGINATION.

It could be due to Toxoplasma gondii. That would also explain a lot of other things that are going on, including the Bernie & Trump phenomena.

tadchem

I am the child of a technical writer and a professional proofreader, so I found this post quite cringeworthy. Aside from that, however, one need not be a psychic to sense the operation of a nascent paranoia here.

Javert Chip

Nascent?

tadchem

I’ve seen full-blown paranoia many times. He’s not there yet.

Really thank you so much you have made yourself look extremely clever. I never said anything about being a professional writer, You said that. The paranoia is in you because you have acknowledged it not me. Look at yourself to see what is inside of you.

MarkW

If I notice that someone else is acting paranoid, this proves that I’m paranoid.
I don’t know what drugs you have been taking, but I would advise cutting down the dose.

I can’t bring myself to read past the first couple of paragraphs, such is the distraction caused by his retarded writing skills. An adult who writes like that should be embarrassed.

Ian deserves no mercy, really. His belief system is just a pile of comfortable fantasies without the benefit of the perspective produced by a well rounded education.
I don’t think 99 of 100 people have the merest conception of the vast volume of the earth.

Perhaps id is the delusive effects of the prescriptive produced by a well rounded pill

Michael 2

He appears to be Australian. “Ian is a popular Australian psychic medium and has over 30 years of experience and is an amazingly accurate Psychic Medium. His intuitive connection with a clear direct channel brings forth past lives, messages from beyond and emotional healing.” (from his website.)

Javert Chip

Exactly how does Ian demonstrate the accuracy of his “messages from beyond”?

MarkW

He asks for a repeat, and if he gets the same message that proves his accuracy.

Was this junk published, or is Anthony throwing junk at us for fun? Are there really people out there who buy into this freak’s ideas? If so we are doomed. Doomed I say.

Dig this: “Earth is a living breathing organism just like any other living thing, it feels, it hurts, it cries, it grows and changes. ” Now, that’s deep. Deep, I say.

Is WUWT running short of material?
If so, a shout out for articles might be better than publishing drivel?
I’ve got a couple sitting on the shelf that could be ready to go in short order. I’m sure others do as well. Just holler if you want ’em.

Oh come on now. The post was plainly marked as humor and the title clearly told us that he is a nut. We need a bit of humor now and then. Not every post needs to be deadly serious with the fate of western civilization riding on the it.
Of course a man once said, “Western Civilization? It would be a good idea!”

The other man once said, “Civilization is a transition from barbarism to decadence.”
When most of the “scientists” agree with “psychics,” this transition is complete.

I can help you with that – the answer is “not well”

This is the kind of critical thinking we get from Bernie supporters…

Jeez Tom, this is your second “tsk tsk” comment, so I can see the idle chatter, here, on this thread (I hope you haven’t lumped moi in with all the rest), has been a real drag for you and has left your normally chipper “aura” all “low-energy” and peaked-lookin’, and everything. So I hope I’m not out of line if I recommend that you visit Ian Scott’s on-line shop, which is linked to the latest, and apparently only edition of Ian’s “Thrive on News–Free Spiritual Magazine”, a cutting-edge publication of which Ian is “the owner, writer, and editor”, and that features, in what is apparently its sole article, ever, (not counting the gushing, attached testimonial, I mean), an admiring account of Ian, so complete in its exploration of the many forms in which Ian’s essential “grooviness” bravely manifests itself, amidst the dross and mockery of this tacky, earthly plane of existence, that it could almost be used, without changing a single word, even, as advertising copy–not that Ian would ever be interested in such a thing, of course. .
I mean, like, I’m thinkin’, Tom, an order for a coupla of Ian’s “Druid-Boy T-Shirts”, and, maybe, a really cool, “Genuine Alder Wood” Ogham Protection Amulet, strung on “Genuine Leather”, and that comes in a packaging that remarkably resembles laminated paper and fossil-fuel derived plastic, but is obviously no such thing, that would look just darling on your cat, and–what the hell! might as well go on a shoppin’-binge splurge, here, since we’re talkin’ about gettin’ you out of that funk, you’re in, right Tom?–you might even want to put one of those far-out “Dream Catchers” in your virtual shopping cart (the “Spirit of the Cat” example is especially mind-blowing) would do wonders to get you back on a good-vibe roll, I’m thinkin’. Check it out, Tom!

Javert Chip

Tom
(sigh)
If what you’re trying to say is you’re disappointed in (the rest of) us for not embracing Ian’s cow poo, you have judged correctly.
Somebody has to make real decisions, do real work and pay real taxes so guys like Ian can live off the fat of the land.
But then Ian knew he’d get this response.

Sure did proving a fact and that is skeptics and negative thinkers will attack others simply because that is what they do. No real honest opinions just attacks. Those that attack others is in fact a hatred or mis like for themselves. Basic psychology. Many blessings Ian

MarkW

Translation: I’m used to people laughing at me. However in order to protect what’s left of my sanity, I’ve convinced myself that the problem is in those other people who don’t believe as I do.

Brad Keyes is a sceptical psychic. You may find his predictions more suitable.

Being idle, I had a quick look at this bloke’s website. Do not go there, you’ll need new pair of shoes, it is a total ‘merde’

You should shout yourself a new pair of shoes anyway be kind to yourself. Then hop on over to thrive on news

Here is a link from another website http://channelingerik.com/channeling-an-alien-part-one/
This is the interesting bit
Q: So if the heat emanates from within and rises to the solid surface, why don’t we have a generally cooling effect? What keeps the center of Earth hot?
AE: Magnetism, both generated and received. The example we would use are your coils for sparks, in automobiles, your transportation devices. The magnetic field expands then collapses around the coil. The introduction of electricity into a coil creates the magnetism which then collapses onto the coil as the electricity is interrupted, and a spark is made. Earth magnetism does this also, with the steel and iron Earth contains. The magnetism of the sun, your star has great effect on this. Remember, as your guardians have told you, most of Earth’s solid surface is covered by water and the effects of surface heating and cooling are limited to hard land, a small portion of the surface creates the season effects. The vast portions of water absorb the surface heating effect with almost no consequence. The rise of heat to the hard surface under water has little short term effect on climate and weather; it does control the patterns of Earth surface weather.
Q: We’ve been told before, global warming or climate change is not a human effect.
AE: No, it is not and humans cannot yet affect climate and weather. Magnetism does this.
Any scientists wish to comment on this

MarkW

When electricity warms something, there is a loss of energy in the electric circuit.
So each time through the magnetism to electricity back to magnetism loop. Energy is lost. There is nothing to replace that energy. So if this were truly the mechanism that’s keeping the earth’s core warm, the earth’s core would have frozen solid billions of years ago.
Let me see if I have this straight. Heat can only escape from the earth from dry land, water is apparently a perfect insulator? Try getting into a tub of unheated water and see how long you keep warm. Sheesh.
And even better, this heating from dry land is what creates the seasons?
I’m hoping that the person who created this web site was having a lot of fun.
Because if he’s serious, he needs immediate psychiatric intervention.

Oh stop it, I don’t claim to be anything else than what I’ve stated. [snip]

And my comment is based on what you have stated.

Last night I had to console mother earth, she was crying. ( eyes rolling in my head ) ….. don’t touch the baby asteroids, they need to grow up to become planets! I have to go see the lizard king now.

Are you ok mate see lifeline or a psychologist they can help with your problem. You know if your seeing lizards something wrong. love and light

Patrick MJD

If you are talking of LifeLine here in Australia, then bad call. These people deal with real issues.

Patrick MJD

Actually, your comment is a very shallow and selfish comment to make if indeed you are talking about LifeLine here in Australia. They actually help real people in the community who suffer from real problems such as alcohol/drug abuse, domestic violence and suicide thoughts/attempts. So to use their name in the way you have is disgusting and derogatory to the services, real services, these people provide to the community nationwide. A clear indication, IMO, how disconnected from reality you are.

Highly resistant to applied engineering. Always going OHM all the time…

In the comic strip “The Perishers”, the character Wellington predicted that when the oil had been pumped out of the Earth, it would seize up and stop rotating.
The psychic is right about the TTP, of course, but you don’t need to be psychic to see that.

Excellent, that was what I was hoping to hear it doesn’t take a psychic to realize we are killing the earth.

Patrick MJD

We are? Have evidence of that given much of the earth is largely uninhabited and explored, especially the 7/10ths of the surface covered in water.

MarkW

I don’t see any evidence that we are killing the earth.
In fact the earth has been getting much healthier in recent decades.
