Hey, remember when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that fighting global warming was our generation’s World War II? It was an idiotic remark, but then she pushed policy to back up her words. Alas, the Green New Deal was born. An economic disaster, which seeks to transition the nation off of fossil fuels in a decade, kill farting cows, upgrade all buildings to energy efficient standards, whatever those may be, and eliminate the combustible engine. It’s the epitome of intrusive government and it comes with a $90 trillion price tag. This is on top of the far left’s jobs guarantee, free college, and Medicare for All. It’s a socialist mess. But hey, at least we’ll be doing something to help curb global warming which is such a threat…that one of Greenland’s key glaciers actually grew (via NBC News):
NARRATIVE FAIL: A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is now growing again https://t.co/zVMdTsp0iI— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) March 26, 2019
A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a new NASA study finds.
The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually. But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary.
“That was kind of a surprise. We kind of got used to a runaway system,” said Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland ice and climate scientist Jason Box. “The good news is that it’s a reminder that it’s not necessarily going that fast. But it is going.”
Yep. We’re back to this again: Predictions of doomsday and then…nothing. Remember the Arctic Ice Cap? It was supposed to disappear by 2013. It ended up growing by some 533,000 square miles. This is why betting on these folks’ predictions are straight trash. No, I’m not willing to bet trillions in economic output and activity on people who have been dead wrong. In the 1970s, the Earth was supposed to be undergoing a cooling period that could see periods of glaciation breakout across the Northern Hemisphere. It didn’t happen. As for the wild weather touting the pro-global warming crowd clamors about on an annual basis, yes, we’ve had some bad storms. Yet, in 2013, it was the calmest hurricane season in 30 years and the quietest Tornado season in six decades. It’s a mixed record and I’m not willing to kill the U.S. economy from people who have predicted disaster for decades only to be proven with the hard fact that we’re still here and alive. The glacier is growing everyone. That’s good news.
I guess we’re all going to die in 12 years because Democrats refused to vote for the legislation they said we needed to avert all our untimely deaths.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 26, 2019
In the meantime, rabble, rabble, rabble.
