She seems to confuse being a climate scientist with being a climate eco-activists. But since most climate scientists are unable to tell the difference, I guess that is understandable.

Is this a case of an old windbag corrupting the youth? Or a fanatical teenager corrupting the elderly? It’s hard to tell nowadays.

“I’m going to hang around D.C. until the weather gets iffy, then fly back to Montecito, where they don’t have any weather. They DO have cute shops offer hand-knit hats that look cool on TV. To save the polar bears, you see. Or to save African peasants, or to sacrifice African peasants — I can’t remember which.

“As for American peasants, like the ones in Northern California throwing out their food after random blackouts, well then, let them eat canned goods. Or cake. Or get generators like I’ve got for ALL my mansions.”

Attention Moderators….lewd reference in the true statements below:

At Gretta’s age + maybe a few years, Hanoi Jane was having her ^!^$ (i.e. mammary glands) more or less on display on film for $$.

Should not the great Greta mimic the great Jane Fonda in her methods of attracting an audience in a few years hence…for the great CAUSE??

Perhaps Greta, or the “97% who all agree”, can fill the missing blanks in this table.
Within 10% will do, as I appreciate that these numbers fluctuate from time to time.

Volcanoes = ppm
Oceans= ppm
Swamps = ppm
Bush fires = ppm
Other = ppm
Coal Power stations = ppm

TOTAL = 410 ppm of CO2

The important question being …who would play Elle Mae in a remake of the Beverley Hillbillies today?

Miss PC herself Amy Schumer or Our Aussie and excruciatingly unfunny comic Hannah Gadsby…
Though given Hannah does …Bat for the other team..an Aussie cricket term for Gay (probably illegal to use that term nowadays) she might be best served in the fabulous Miss Hathaway role played perfectly by Nancy Kulp…Later in life…In 1989, Kulp gave an interview to author and homosexual activist Boze Hadleigh in which she said,…As long as you reproduce my reply word for word, and the question, you may use it … I’d appreciate it if you’d let me phrase the question….There is more than one way. Here’s how I would ask it: “Do you think that opposites attract?” My own reply would be that I’m the other sort — I find that birds of a feather flock together. That answers your question.

Modern day Hollywood would have Miss Hathaway swooning over Elle Mae and would completey ruin both The Movie and most of the good roles in the series…And Jed would, on the advise of Woke banker..Mr Drysdale from Goldman Sachs…leave all the Bubbling Crude…Oil That is…in the ground to save the family BackBlocks….and The Raccoons…and The Gators!
While Ellie Mae and Miss Hathaway stay in Beverley Hills and form The Lesbian Ladies Club for Hot Chicks and Climate Justice.
Naturally the movie stinks and bombs to blazes.
Anybody got any actual real hotties to nominate for a new Elle Mae?

RE: Golden Pond

The boy warming up to the old grouch who took him fishing made the picture. “Young pipsqueak befriends crotchety geezer,” is a great theme. That’s what made “The Wizard of Oz” so endearing. Dorothy wins over everyone in the end, even the bogus Wizard. That theme could be used more often, after half a century of cops & robbers, secret agent pyrotechnics, chase scenes, choreographed bloodletting, cheesy romcoms, and doomsday disaster films.

It’s odd when you think about it, why kids charming geezers isn’t done more often, what with the grotesque oversupply of sourpuss, over-the-hill movie stars from the now-geriatric, baby boomer generation. They (we, I’m sorry to admit) always did take themselves too seriously, and have failed in the self-deprecating humor department.

Years ago I remember one of those short real life things Readers Digest had.
A guy related that he went into a bar in a small town and saw a “new guy” sitting at the bar.
He decided to have some fun and went up to him and claimed he was sitting in his seat.
The “new guy” looked up and him and calmly picked up his beer and went to an empty booth.
Mentally gloating, he looked over at the “new guy” and realized it was Chuck Norris. (They were shooting part of a film in town.)
He went up to him and said (paraphrased), “You could have kicked my ass. Why didn’t you?”
Chuck’s answer, again paraphrased, was, “There are some things worth fighting for. A bar stool isn’t one of them. Sure, I could kick your ass, what would that prove?”

(I think that happened the day before his chute didn’t open and returned it to a feminist rally.8-)

Thanks for the comments, but here’s a Reality Check: Fonda was in North Vietnam posing for pictures with the NVA, who subsequently utilized her to their propaganda advantage. The VC were a Marxist faction inside South Vietnam, they were 11% of the population at the start and 19% of the population at the end. My twin brother (bird dog pilot) and I (ride-along program with pilots-I was an Air Traffic Controller) flew over many enemy and we both saw less than 1% armed VC, the other 99% were uniformed and well-equipped NV Regulars. The left and their cooperating media tried to present the VC as defending their country, but not true. Sort of like today, where the left and their cooperating media present Climate Change as Republicans driving large SUV’s and trying to destroy our planet.

Reply to  Ron Long
October 14, 2019 5:15 pm

I know that, Ron. Bad habit of mine using VC for everything in North Vietnam, that’s all. I was at NAVPHOTOCEN in Anacostia Flats 1967-1970. I look back at that and still wonder if the draft was really the issue, or was it something else?

Reply to  Sara
October 14, 2019 5:29 pm

As we all remember, micro-manager Lyndon Johnson was the President during the critical years of the Vietnam War. He was no Commander in Chief. The Vietnam War Memorial was dedicated NOVEMBER 13, 1982, honoring 58,000 American troops who died. U.S. forces inflicted over a million enemy fatalities, essentially wiped out the Viet Cong as a fighting force during the TET Offensive debacle, yet involvement by politicians forfeited our victory. North Vietnamese colonel, Bui Tin, received the unconditional surrender of South Vietnam on April 30, 1975.

Bui Tin explained how the protests by “anti-war peace demonstrators” (the most successful propaganda program ever operated by the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies) was key to the Communist “victory”:
“Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio at 9 a.m. to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement …
… Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and ministers gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses …
… We were elated when Jane Fonda, wearing a red Vietnamese dress, said at a press conference that she was ashamed of American actions in the war and that she would struggle along with us.”

After the war, Bui Tin became vice chief editor of the Communist Party’s official newspaper in Vietnam, People’s Daily, but he grew disillusioned with Communist corruption and, in 1990, fled to Paris.

In an interview, Bui Tin stated:

“The roots of the Vietnam War – its all-encompassing and underlying nature – lie in a confrontation between two ideological worlds: socialism versus capitalism … totalitarianism versus democracy …

The conscience of America was part of its war-making capability, and we were turning that power in our favor. America lost because of its democracy; through dissent and protest it lost the ability to mobilize a will to win.”

Commenting on this dangerous trend is retired Major General Patrick Brady, considered the most decorated living veteran. Major General Patrick Brady wrote, June 4, 2013:

“The greatest danger … the feminization, emasculation and dismantling of our military.

The two most important elements of national survival are the media and the military …

We know the media are failing – God help us if the military does also ….

Wind turbine blades being disposed of in Casper landfill

The Casper landfill will soon be the home of more than 1,000 decommissioned wind turbine blades and motor housing units.

According to Cindie Langston, solid waste manager for the Casper Regional Landfill, the materials will be deposited in an area of the landfill designed to hold construction and demolition material.

CRL is one of the few landfills with the proper permits and certifications to accept the decommissioned turbine materials.


Each turbine blade will need between 30 and 44.8 cubic yards of landfill space, using a total of 448,000 cubic yards of the 2.6 million yards set aside for construction and demolition material.

Salute returned, and thank you for going beyond the call to debrief Colleen and Bonnie. I corresponded with the families of Baron 52 as well. I instructed two of the co-pilots who were killed and went through EC-47 training with them at England AFB in Alexandria, LA. Sonny’s wife was six months pregnant when he was killed. I still have a letter I got from “Kiwi’s” mother (he was the Z-console operator, 21 years old), in response to my letter telling her all about “a day in the life of….” on our missions. I will be buried with that letter and the small New Testament my older sister gave me before I deployed that I kept in a leg pocket in my flight suit on all 109 missions plus FCFs and training sorties.

This is a copy of the bulletin from the memorial service held for the 8 man crew of “Baron 52,” lost over Saravane, Laos in February 1973, less than a week after the phony “ceasefire” that supposedly ended hostilities in the Vietnam war.

I often wondered how many names on the Vietnam Memorial Wall are of National Guardsmen and Reservists. One hundred and forty Medal of Honor recipients were in the National Guard. Six thousand seventy-seven members of the National Guard or Reserves died in Vietnam.

Draft dodgers? Cowards? Naw, that would be Bill Clinton. John Kerry got FIVE deferments before his rich connections landed him a berth in the Navy. His last deferment was “to study FRENCH in Paris”….longer than his three month Medal-harvesting tour in Vietnam.

She never recovered from her AI induced climactic (sic) episode in Barbarella. Inspired by the song by the Beach Boys, Good Good Good Vibrations. They weren’t from California by any chance?
Jane Fonda is doing what all lame brained Hollywood stars seem to be doing. She is jumping onto a convenient band wagon. The fact it isn’t going anywhere and the fact it won’t cost her anything is glossed over by the compliant news of this un-historic event. Big news!! “Hollywood old timer goes to Washington….briefly, once a week”
Her slogan is– “Come on you grannies, we only have 12 years left”
The natural honesty of that slogan, is in sharp contrast to the climate crisis lies driving the grannies on.
Hey maybe it will inspire Hollywood to present a new award at the annual awards jamboree, maybe call it “The Granny Award” it has a certain ring to it, don’t you think?

This comment may not make it past the Mods, but I will post it and let them decide.

In July 1972, a few months before I arrived at DaNang in South Vietnam, Hanoi Jane Fonda was giggling and having her photo taken in a North Vietnamese AAA gun seat.

comment image?w=800&h=420

In November 1972, our second child was born. In December 1972, a few days before I arrived at DaNang, the North Vietnamese shot down an A-7D pilot from DaNang (do a search on Tony Shine). In February 1973, our squadron lost an aircraft with 8 of my friends. Do a search on “Baron 52.” They and the rest of us are the pilots Hanoi Jane Fonda wanted her Communist comrades to kill.

There was a story covered by CBS in the 1990s about his daughter going over and finding some of the remains of his ship and getting his helmet back from a Vietnamese who had taken it from the site shortly after the shoot-down.

Daughter solves mystery of pilot’s Vietnam death – CBS News

Lt. Col. Anthony Shine was flying on the border of North Vietnam and Laos on December 2, 1972 when his plane descended a cloud covering for reconnaissance and he was listed as missing in action.

His daughter, Colleen Shine, was 8 years old at the time. Later in life, she wanted to find out what exactly happened to her her dad, who is now listed among the more than 58,000 other names of those killed in Vietnam on the memorial wall.

Over the years, the military repeatedly told Shine that any further searching was useless.

Shine said, “Finally in 1995, they told me (they found his) crash site. They believed there was nothing more we can learn…he was killed in action. Any parts of the aircraft would have been scavenged by villagers for scrap metal and any remains would have been washed away in floods and the erosion. And so I went to Vietnam…to have peace with knowing, in war, there will be casualties where you never have an answer, and I thought that would be the case.”

But instead, she found answers and proof of where her father died.

You are very welcome. It was an honor to be considered worthy to wear the uniform of the United States military and to serve my fellow Americans. I stood on the shoulders of giants.

Military veterans are an amalgamation of unique individuals, melded together in the crucible of wars past and present and bonded by duty, honor, sacrifice, blood, love of family and love of country. The trait we most cherish above all others is candor…lives depend on it on the battlefield.

More so than through any other community, the bonds, associations and friendships formed through the military and law enforcement and firefighters and other emergency responders are lifelong, and we mourn the loss of our comrades until we rejoin them again someday in formation in Heaven.

Early Blizzard Wallops Vulnerable Crops
Farmers who planted late after rainy spring face new threat from early freeze

By Jacob Bunge and Kirk Maltais, WSJ
Updated Oct. 14, 2019
Farmers who delayed planting in waterlogged fields this spring face a new threat as they race to harvest their crops: snow.

Heavy snowfall and high winds over the past several days buffeted northern Farm Belt states where many farmers faced historic planting delays last spring. The early blizzard bookended a trying year for U.S. farmers. Crop prices generally remain under pressure because of high supplies and slackened demand as a result of the U.S.-China trade war. And many crops now threatened by a freeze are immature because they were planted so late.

Roger Rix, who farms near Groton, S.D., was hustling with his sons last Wednesday to harvest soybeans before the storm hit. He suspected two-thirds of their soybean acres would still be in the field when the storm was forecast to arrive this week.

“We know the snow’s going to be a disaster,” Mr. Rix said.

Fonda, forever known as “Hanoi Jane” to those who took offense to her stand against the Vietnam War, is worth $100s of millions. Enjoys a jet-setting life, ensuring she is yet another foolish ‘celebrity’ that consumes vast amounts of resources while preaching at others not to consume so much.
Her remarkable talent in overacting in every role Hollywood gave her, meant she was the darling of all those self appointed grandees of socialism that infest the US cinema industry.

Just a slight clarification, people didn’t take offense to her stand against the Vietnam War. There were lots of people who stood and protested the war, and that’s their constitutional right to do so. It was the actions she took while standing against the war – specifically going to North Vietnam and participating in VC propaganda (photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, broadcasts on Radio Hanoi, etc).

For your added enjoyment,…..

Jane Fonda’s Broadcasts on Radio Hanoi…American POWs being tortured in North Vietnamese prisons were forced to listen to them. Some POWs were taken to Cuba to be used in medical experiments, generally the ones who had been tortured so badly they could never be returned without having to explain how they became so disfigured and crippled while in captivity.

From July 8 – 22, 1972, the American actress Jane Fonda visited North Vietnam at the invitation of the “Vietnamese Committee of Solidarity with the American People.” During this period, she recorded at least 19 propaganda interviews that were broadcast by Radio Hanoi. Twelve of the speeches focused on American servicemen as their primary target. Fonda’s key themes included: demands to halt U.S. bombing of North Vietnam, allegations that the Nixon Administration was “lying” about the war, endorsements of the Viet Cong “7 Point Peace Plan,” claims that the U.S. military was violating international law and committing “genocide” in Vietnam, and statements of confidence in North Vietnam’s continued resistance and ultimate victory over America.

Listed below are all available transcripts of Jane Fonda’s Hanoi broadcasts, as recorded by the CIA’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS). Slightly redacted versions of several broadcasts also appear in the Congressional Record for Sept. 19-25, 1972, “Hearings Regarding H.R. 16742: Restraints on Travel to Hostile Areas.” The transcripts are listed by the dates on which they were originally broadcast by Radio Hanoi.

May she never find peace and be plagued by conscience until the day Satan calls her home.

The reality is that the climate change that we have been experiencing is very small and is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Even if we could somehow stop the Earth’s climate from changing, extreme weather events and sea level rise would continue because they are part of the current climate. The optimum climate has not been defined but even if it were defined, we do not know how to achieve it. Protests will not work to change Mother Nature’s control of the Earth’s climate one iota.

Jane Fonda = Not a nice person

In 1979, she came with Tom Hayden to speak in Ann Arbor MI, to University of Michigan students at Hill Auditorium. The speaking engagement paid them $5,000.

I was not there but had 2 friends who were thrilled to have the opportunity to be their chauffeurs to the speaking engagement.

They had obtained the use of a new Cadillac to take them some 40 miles to the event but when they showed up, Fonda was irate because she insisted it would not match the image she wanted to portray(even though she was a millionaire).
So they got rid of the Cadillac and got a Volkswagen and again, Fonda was upset, so she went and got a Grand Prix which she thought would give them the best image when they would be seen getting dropped off and picked up at the speaking engagement.

The 2 students above, who interacting with her, were treated like pions and went from being fans to greatly disliking her and her, as her handlers were also rude and demanding.

Hayden and Fonda ended up being 45 minutes late to the engagement because of all the issues with her/them getting just the right car for her image but they never apologized to the 4,000 spectators waiting at Hill Auditorium.

Then, when it was time to speak, Fonda seems unprepared and only spoke for 15 minutes. The University Activities Center was so unhappy with them, that there was a discussion about withholding part of the $5,000 agreed upon to pay them beforehand.

You can read about some of it as it appeared in the local paper afterwards:

So we have a coalition of the ignorant to impress on the non-ignorant, that they know more about science than those that have actually studied the subject.
Children are inherently ignorant. I was one, and have raised several in my household. They maintain a diminishing level of ignorance as they learn more. Some are poor at learning, and decide that “action” is more important than understanding.
And many older people have stopped learning, and forgotten what they did know at an earlier age. Especially if they are not required to produce new understanding and new more efficient systems in order to earn their living in a competitive world.
“Ignorant people unite” and smite the ones that actually are productive, and produce the modern world, you would quickly die, without.
