Energy Ban Before There is an Alternative


Armstrong Economics Blog/Energy Re-Posted Sep 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

A House committee last week advanced serious legislation to combat climate change. Biden already went to OPEC to ask them to increase production because gasoline prices have jumped. These people are hopeless. They are passing legislation for an agenda and cutting off the supply BEFORE there is a system with renewable energy, which is only a theory. Nobody believes that we can create enough electricity to provide everyone with a car as if nothing changed. That is what this COVID lockdown is really about — altering the economy, destroying jobs, and ending commuting. They are not telling people straight up, for why would you still have major office buildings when that is part of the plan to end commuting to save the planet? California has already passed legislation banning natural gas in new buildings.

Now Congress is pushing to end all oil drilling in most US offshore waters, thwart potential mining in the western part of the country, and invest billions of dollars in conservation. The $31.7 billion measure, approved 24-13 by the House Natural Resources Committee, would also impose new fees on oil and mining companies while funding drought relief, conservation, and other programs. It is now set to be folded into a broader multi-trillion-dollar social reform and climate change bill that is taking shape in the House. They will attach it to that so it is buried in a seven-foot stack of paper.

They are pushing this agenda in what they are calling “a once-in-a-generation opportunity to advance a bold, ambitious investment in the people of the United States.” The legislation “will confront the damage being done by climate change, put our country on a more sustainable and equitable economic and environmental path, and create millions of jobs,” according to the Democrat chairman.

This is like saying the medicine you are taking now will be replaced maybe in five or ten years, so we will outlaw it now to prepare. This is the greatest example of total mismanagement, perhaps in history. All of this renewable energy is theory — that’s it. Fine, I am installing solar panels on the roof. But if there is a storm and clouds for several days, you have no energy, all your food goes bad, and you could even starve. That’s why you cannot simply throw everything else out now and think you can live off the sun forever.

A Technical Study in the Relationships of Solar Flux, Water, Carbon Dioxide and Global Temperatures, July 2021 Data


From the attached report on climate change for July 2021 Data we have the two charts showing how much the global temperature has actually gone up since we started to measure CO2 in the atmosphere in 1958? To show this graphically Chart 8a was constructed by plotting CO2 as a percent increase from when it was first measured in 1958, the Black plot, the scale is on the left and it shows CO2 going up by about 32.0% from 1958 to July of 2021. That is a very large change as anyone would have to agree.  Now how about temperature, well when we look at the percentage change in temperature also from 1958, using Kelvin (which does measure the change in heat), we find that the changes in global temperature (heat) is almost un-measurable at only .4%. As you see the increase in energy, heat, is not visually observably in this chart hence the need for another Chart 8 to show the minuscule increase in thermal energy shown by NASA in relationship to the change in CO2 Shown in the next Chart using a different scale.

The next chart is Chart 8 which is the same as Chart 8a except for the scales. The scale on the right side had to be expanded 10 times (the range is 50 % on the left and 5% on the right) to be able to see the plot in the same chart in any detail. The red plot, starting in 1958, shows that the thermal energy in the earth’s atmosphere increased by .40%; while CO2 has increased by 32.0% which is 80 times that of the increase in temperature. So is there really a meaningful link between them that would give as a major problem?

Based to these trends, determined by excel not me, in 2028 CO2 will be 428 ppm and temperatures will be a bit over 15.0o Celsius and in 2038 CO2 will be 458 ppm and temperatures will be 15.6O Celsius. This is what the data shows no matter what the reasons are, so I have no idea how the IPCC gets to predict that the world will end in ten or even twenty years.

Carbon Dioxide CO2 is not making “ANY” dangerous changes to the global temperature!

The numbers tell us — there isn’t any problem!

The full 40 page report explains how these charts were developed and why using NASA and NOAA data that are used without change to prove that The New Green Deal is not required and any attempt to complete that plan will be a worldwide disaster.

The Threat of an Ice Age is Real


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Aug 6, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Most people have NEVER heard of the Beaufort Gyre, a massive wind-driven current in the Arctic Ocean that actually has far more influence over sea ice than anything we can throw into the atmosphere. The Beaufort Gyre has been regulating climate and sea ice formation for millennia. Recently, however, something has changed; it is not something that would create global warming but threatens a new Ice Age.

There is a normal cycle that appears to be about 5.4 years where it reverses direction and spins counter-clockwise, expelling ice and freshwater into the eastern Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic. The 5.4-year cycle is interesting for it is two pi cycle intervals of 8.6. The immediate cycle has suddenly expanded to two 8.6-year intervals, bringing it to 17.2 years as we head into 2022.

What you must understand is that this Beaufort Gyre now holds as much freshwater as all of the Great Lakes combined. Why is that important? Saltwater freezes at a lower temperature than the 32 degrees F at which freshwater freezes. The difference between the air temperature and the freezing point of saltwater is bigger than the difference between the air temperature and the freezing point of fresh water. This makes the ice with salt on it melt faster, which is why we salt the roads in an ice storm.

Now, think of the Beaufort Gyre as a carousel of ice and freshwater. Because it is now spinning both faster and in its usual clockwise direction, it has been collecting more and more freshwater from the three main sources:

  1. Melting sea ice
  2. Runoff from the Arctic Ocean from Russian and North American rivers
  3. Lower saltwater coming in from the Bering Sea

Indeed, Yale has warned that this current could “Cool the Climate in Europe,” which is precisely what we are witnessing. Cyclically, the Beaufort Gyre will reverse direction, and when it does the clear and present danger will be the natural expulsion of a massive amount of icy fresh water into the North Atlantic. Remember now, freshwater freezes faster than saltwater.

This is not a theory. We have previous records of reversals in this cycle of the Beaufort Gyre from the 1960s and 1970s, where there was a surge of fresh Arctic water released into the North Atlantic that resulted in the water freezing. There has been a lot of work done on this subject, which, of course, is ignored by the climate change agenda that only seeks to blame human activity. Nevertheless, AAAS, of which I am a member, states plainly:

“Arctic sea ice affects climate on seasonal to decadal time scales, and models suggest that sea ice is essential for longer anomalies such as the Little Ice Age.” 

Socrates has been given just about every possible database I could find over the past 50 years. Because of the extended 17.2-year cycle in the Beaufort Gyre, the risk that a larger than normal expulsion of freshwater into the Atlantic can disrupt the Gulf Stream, which is the sole reason why Europe has been moderate in climate. But that has NOT always been the case. We know that the Barbarian invasions into Rome during the 3rd century were primarily driven by a colder climate in the north. The invasion of the Sea Peoples ended the Bronze Age and those from the north migrated into the South storming Mesopotamia and Northern Africa.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL

It is just not created by humans.

Perhaps we are now at the tipping point and they cannot keep saying that the extremely cold winter is also caused by CO2 and global warming. The collapse of the gulf stream has nothing to do with CO2. This may result in a major confrontation that these people have been seriously wrong and what they are doing to the economy in trying to shut down fossil fuels at this point in time could result in tens of millions of deaths if the gulf stream collapses.

The CO2 Propaganda Agenda


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Aug 3, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: You are misleading everyone. Climate Change is real, and the danger is CO2 must be eliminated. Everyone knows that.

HV

REPLY: Obviously, you just read the propaganda. Do you remember science class? CO2 is vital to the planet. They assume that everyone is a moron. If there were zero CO2, there would be no plant life. You should commit suicide now and save the planet; every breath of oxygen you take in, you exhale CO2. You are the threat they are talking about.

That is why Gates wants to reduce the population. You cannot ever get to zero CO2 without reducing the population. Even the founder of Greenpeace admits this was all contrived as a leftist agenda and that zero CO2 is not attainable.

The United Nations Climate summit was so rigged that it was criminal. Joe Biden rushed to have the USA support this corruption. Not only did the United Nations block countries that it deemed were uncooperative, but NO scientist was allowed to speak to give the other side. This has been a deliberate agenda, which was the prelude to this agenda 2030 for the Great Reset.

You better wake up. You are the problem in their eyes and they intend to keep you locked up, unemployed, and hoping you die to save the planet.

There is No Danger from Carbon Dioxide Causing a Global Catastrophe!


This ad was in the Wednesday July 28, 2021 Washington Times Newspaper

The properties of carbon dioxide have been mischaracterized and distorted by leftist politicians, professors, and even scientists who are influenced by left-leaning institutions that provide funds for research. Be aware of reporting from your favorite conservative sources to see if they use this information to set the record straight. Essentially, the information contained in the attachment effectively contradicts with accurate scientific facts the long-running media narrative about humans causing climate change with the use of fossil fuels which add carbon dioxide to Earth’s atmosphere. The information that you will see is self-explanatory and will likely make it more difficult for the human-caused climate change narrative to persist.

Pass this on to your friends …

Devastating Floods May be the Beginning


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Jul 22, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The climate activists come out with every disaster and blame climate change. The brush fires in Australia were climate change yet termite hills were taller than a truck for they have evolved to withstand natural brush fires. The collapse of the condos in Florida was immediately claimed to be caused by rising sea levels when it was faulty construction. Here we go again claiming extreme weather is all caused by CO2 and the flood in China is evidence of their theory with NO historical documentation whatsoever. The truth is that there was massive flooding in China in 1931 as pictured here.

This is NOT something new as they always claim. Indeed, nature conspired against Emperor Wang Mang in 11AD, who like Biden, was trying to create massively overvalued money which also ruined the economy. His wuzhu coins were set at 560 times their metal content which was not well received by the people.

Meanwhile, the Yellow River flooded killing many thousands that eventually caused a great famine and a plague. This led to civil unrest as a sign from heaven. Peasants migrated south and banded into larger groups. One of these groups rose, known as the Red Eyebrows, and they were strong enough that they defeated one of Wang’s armies. This led to widespread rebellions even in the capital. They stormed the palace and in a grand last stand, about 1,000 palace guards defended Wang to the last man. The rebels then killed Wang Mang bringing an end to his brief dreams of creating a new dynasty.

These floods are NOT something new. They have been taking place for thousands of years. The real problem is more than the immediate deaths from drowning. The crisis that has often followed is crop failures, starvation, and the rise of plagues from such events.

Today, if the masses stormed the White House, Biden would probably think it’s a party. They would be hanging the wrong guy. It’s the power behind the throne this time.

This is a photo of the Paris flood of 1910. The flood in Europe is also not unknown. We should expect rising floods with the greatest peak in this cycle arrives during the 2032-2037 time period and in the Western United States droughts.

So instead of blaming soccer moms for driving the kids and people who commute to work, just maybe we should be looking at extreme weather from a cyclical standpoint

The Latest Fraud of CNN


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Jul 14, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

CNN is deliberately misleading the public, and they REFUSE to do any real investigative reporting. They should be shut down as a propaganda organization that is against the national security of the United States. Anyone who would bother to just look at how that statistic was created would be ashamed to repeat it. CNN and others are intimidating scientists who are afraid to tell the truth, for they will be canceled, ridiculed, and may even lose their job.

In 2009, the University of Illinois sent a survey online to about 10,000 scientists with the following two questions:

QUESTION #1

Do you agree that global temperatures have generally risen since the pre-1800s?

QUESTION #2
Do you think that human activity is a significant contributing factor?


Only 3146 responses were received of 10,000, and of that 31%, 90% said yes to the first question but 82% said yes to the second question.


This is how the fraud was carried out by people who have used this survey. They narrowed down the responses and found that among meteorologists who responded, only 64% said yes to the second question, so about 1/3 said NO!

Then disregarding all the others of the 3146 responses, they focused on only 77 who described themselves as “climate experts” without any proof of their credentials and found that only 75 said yes to the second question.

Therefore, when we divide 75/77 we get to their claim of  97% of all scientists in the world say there is a climate emergency that warrants raising taxes and seizing property.

This was only 2.3% of those who bothered to respond, and I doubt that they would agree with the solution which is COMMUNISM!


0.0075%

If we take the 75 responses of 10,000 scientists surveyed, that means only 0.0075% agreed that there is climate change with some human causality. Why are they lying to the entire world? Because behind this movement is the destruction of capitalism and the resurrection of communism. And people wonder why our computer has been forecasting that the financial capital of the world is moving to Asia? Climate change activists are trying to recreate the Marxist experiment all over again.
