One of the biggest problems in the world today is hubris, especially among leftists, government leaders and global elites. Hubris that they can control the environment, even if there was a “climate emergency”. which there isn’t. Hubris that they can predict the path of an epidemic (they failed miserably) and stop its progress with new, untested vaccines (they failed again). Hubris that their computer models can predict the future (they have repeatedly failed in the past and show no signs of improving). Much of mankind has fallen in love with its technological miracles, but there is little reason to be so impressed. Nature and other circumstances have a way of ruining man’s best-laid plans.
A bunch of imbecilic leftists so worked up about “climate change” that they refuse to have children.
Well, yea! This means far fewer leftists in future generations!
We are currently witnessing the two biggest scandals and scams of our generation: the government created Covid panic and climate change. It is now painfully obvious that Dr. Fauci and many others pushing the Covid fear narrative are horribly corrupt, lied, withheld information, and browbeat opposing voices all in the name of power and wealth. The exact same thing has been going on in the climate change movement for decades. The world needs to wake up to the fact that many so-called scientists are not honest, well-meaning individuals but like all humans are corrupted by power and money, especially when obscene amounts of government money are involved. In addition, our goverment and those that work for it often do not have the people’s best interest at heart. Fauci is a poor scientists as has been documented for 40 years but is a conniving bureaucrat and politician who destroys all in his path. He and many others involved in Covid and the climate movement have done irreparable harm to science. It is time for the real scientists to take over.
Former CDC chief got death threats from other scientists over lab-leak theory:

Fauci’s book pulled over growing scandal:
The man apparently feels spaying reflective particles into the atmosphere to stop “climate change” is a good idea. What could possibly go wrong?
This is the problem with extremely wealthy, cloistered elites…they believe their own bullshit! Upset the natural balance of things and Mother Nature may not like it. A cold spell could become far worse with such geo-engineering, for example.
The other day GM pledged to sell only electric vehicles by 2035. no doubt virtue signaling to the new corrupt or not very bright leaders in the federal government. Some actual experts view this a pure fantasy. First off, the CO2 footprint of electric vehicles from creation to end of use is greater than combustion engine cars. So they do nothing to address “climate change”. Second, new fossil fuel or nuclear powerplants will have to be built to provide the electricity necessary, something the greenies oppose. Finally there is the battery problem. Car batteries require large amounts of lithium and other rare earth metals to function. These materials are RARE (thus the name), expensive to mine and cause tremendous environmental damage. So, massive fleets of EV’s will never come to pass. When the leftist elites say they want a “clean energy” future what they really mean is that only those with the power and money (like themselves) will be allowed to have cars, travel extensively or fly on planes. Modes of transportation will be dramatically restricted through government fiat or expense all in the name of “saving the planet”. This is the leftists Utopia: freedom for the elites and misery for all others.
A formerly credible Canadian newspaper ran an opinion piece stating that your lawn is a sign of racism and colonialism. Just when I thought leftists couldn’t get any dumber someone comes up with this.
My only consolation is that this came from Canada, though I am sure there are numerous Marxist environmentalists in the US thinking, “yeah man!” Fortunately, most Canadians do not seem to be this nutty or stupid, as the comment section is brutal. It is deliciously ironic that they same people decrying “climate change” and who believe that by banning fossil fuels we can control the Earth’s environment believe that taming the weeds in your yard is bad. Hypocrisy, double-think and insanity…the ways of the left.
If there are two more annoying, loathsome people than Greta and Vedder I would like to see it. Please, make it stop!
I guess “climate change” also caused the bubonic plague in the Middle Ages, the smallpox and polio epidemics in the 1800s and 1900s, the Spanish Flu in 1918, and every other pandemic in history. No, your Popeness, Chinese people eating bats caused this. Unfortunately the Pope is a leftist, and he is also not very bright. But I repeat myself. It is painful to say that.
Normal people are getting fed up. These worthless wannabe terrorists need to receive more of this. Force is all the understand.
Highest poverty rate in the nation. #4 in homeless rate. Millions without power. Highest taxes in the nation. Filthy cities. Third-world diseases. Corrupt state-run boondoggles. These are just a few of the symptoms of a leftist-borne crisis. Leftist politicians and special interest groups are destroying California. I have traveled to many places around the world, including Bangkok, Jakarta and Sao Paulo. What you see there is fabulous wealth and very close to it abject poverty. Right now I would say California has much more in common with those cities and countries than it does its fellow American states. California is failing and it will soon be a crisis.
