Tuesday Tittering

With everything going on, there’s plenty of topics and our resident cartoonist, Josh, has the ammunition.

The new IPCC report went down like a lead balloon as it made contact with reality.

NetZero – Borderline failure.

Like his work? Buy him a pint.

I guess I didn’t know the meaning of tittering.

I have got to say it! A man in a scarf and Covid mask ran around a courtroom indiscriminately feeling womens breasts. Or as one might say. A muffled titter ran around the court.

Josh should add a mask to his demonstrator. That would complete the picture.

It is the act of laughing nervously, often at something that you feel you should not be laughing at.

So I chuckled instead of tittering at the MI6 tweet above.

John Kerry is trying very hard to blame Ukraine on climate change.

…or is he blaming “Climate change on Ukraine?”

In either case, Kerry is clearly delusional.

Is Kerry the guy the tank ran over? That would be a Reality Check even he could not ignore.

That guy survived being run over by that Russian tank!

When I first saw it I thought, there’s no way anyone lived through that, but he did. There was only one passenger and bystanders had to pry him out of the car. it looked like the treads went on either side of the victim, not over him.

I would have liked to have been standing beside that road with an anti-tank weapon in my hands about that time. I would have exacted a little justice right then and there.

The new IPCC report went down like a lead balloon as it made contact with reality.

Given the pathologies of the human mind, it’s amazing we were ever able to climb down out of the trees. The left has an amazing ability to ignore reality. (It’s a matter of degree. There are many on the right who can also do so. Is it 10:1 or 2:1? I don’t know.)

I have a dearly beloved relative who will trumpet this report to everyone he knows. Except me. 🙂

One has to wonder why the Red army isn’t using electric vehicles.

Could it be that it’s because out in the field there is nowhere (and no time to wait as a sitting duck) to charge, but plenty of places where you can stop and refill with diesel – assuming you have your logistics sorted out.

The Russians, as far as I know, don’t go in for checking their white privilege or their pronouns.

But electric vehicles often use lithium batteries, and we all know what would happen if a lithium battery was hit by an explosive device, don’t we?

I see a slight flaw in that plan! The armour advances driving all before it then has to stop and wait while the support stops every few miles to recharge, probably from mobile Diesel gen sets. Making themselves perfect targets for a counter strike.BRILLIANT

Fictional letter:

“Dear Enemy,

Could you please postpone this battle for a few more hours? Our tank batteries haven’t finished recharging yet.

And BTW, would you happen to know if there are any recharging stations on the battlefield? “

Funny thing is the Russian army apparently can’t protect their tanker trucks.

I saw a report, and actually a video in which the video it appeared the drone was not much more than 1 K or so away, of what was said to be a Turkish provided drone shooting a missile to destroy a rocket launcher in a column of Russian vehicles.

The story stated the Ukrainians were using the drones to destroy air defense missile vehicles and TANKER TRUCKS. I would assume such drone fired missiles would not be suitable for destroying tanks, and stopping the advance by stopping the refueling is showing the word how and electric vehicle army would perform.

Too bad Ukraine doesn’t have A 10 aircraft, the 40 mile long column of military vehicles would look like the Iraq, Kuwait highway of death after Desert Storm. Most of the damage there was by AC130s due to no anti-aircraft weapons to endanger the slow flying planes.

A couple of A 10s and pilots willing to risk their lives for their country could fly the length firing their 30 mm cannons and destroy hundreds of vehicles.

Both they and the Chinese have living memory of the misery of living under Marxism. They know better.

The problem is that the Chinese, and to a lesser extent, the Russians are slipping back into totalitarianism, if not full blown Marxism.

Matt McGrath has an article on it. Usual hysterics; worse than previously thought, ‘technology not the solution’, running out of time etc.

The head of the UK secret service MI6, Richard Moore, tweeted that the entire Ukraine tussle is about LGBT+
So watch yer tittering!!

https://twitter.com/ChiefMI6/status/1497287654441984007

“With the tragedy and destruction unfolding so distressingly in Ukraine, we should remember the values and hard won freedoms that distinguish us from Putin, none more than LGBT+ rights. So let’s resume our series of tweets to mark #LGBTHM2022

Not known if anyone ever said the IPCC is all about LGBT+

Biden is not coming to the rescue for Europe because it might have carbon emissions associated with it. Good luck.

Tom Abbott

Exactly right. I think Biden actually thinks CO2 is just as dangerous, or more so, than is the madman Putin.

Biden is disconnected from reality.

There are some in his administration who are connected to reality, but unfortunately, they are all criminals, who use CO2 fear for other, nefarious, selfish purposes.

The big problem with the latest IPCC report is that it is based on IPCC science, And, that science is wrong. Unfortunately, most skeptics also continue to believe in IPCC science. No wonder we never make any headway.

IPCC science treats the greenhouse effect as a top down phenomena. Heat trapped high in the atmosphere warms the planet below. That’s not how it works.

The warming produced by greenhouse gases is at the bottom of the atmosphere and then radiates upward through the atmosphere. Because of this, the warming effect maxes out when the lowest layer of the atmosphere, the boundary layer, reaches thermal equilibrium with the surface. We are already there today.

Skeptics have an opportunity right now to start attacking climate alarm by putting forth a united front with the real science on their side. Pointing out the big scientific error is key. It is also easily defended and makes the IPCC scientists look inept.

I have a habit of miss reading things on first glance, quite often I find my take on it better than the original (but that’s just me) anyhoo my first look at the ipcc logo had me read UNEP as INEPT which I think just about sums up the whole UN.
Reminds me of one of my recordings of the Goons where Ned Seagoon says “Form a committee to form a committee to form a committee”, Just endless layers of committees having meetings to discuss the next meeting.

All the best in your new home, are we able to know where you have escaped to?
From one source I heard that Commifornia was thinking of bringing in an exit tax for businesses to encourage them to stay?
