The climate change movement: July 28, 1995 to August 14, 2020 RIP

Why I'm calling it?
Well this happened over 3 months ago and no one freaked out about it, not even a peep.
Even I think it's pretty significant.
https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...ce-melt-again/
It happened last year they kind of freaked out about it, then it repeated this year and crickets. The crickets are deafening and I can't take it any more.
I checked some of the other climate change posts on different forms and most of them haven't been updated in months, since before the plandemic.

I said it would be finished by 2022 and it seems like they have been riding a dead horse for about the last 3 or 4 years.

Input fatigue.

Everyone is running about in circles shouting "We're gonna die" about today's viral video. People really can't multitask

I was just wondering yesterday how far one would have to move to offset a given predicted rise in temperature.

Based on the graph below, it seems every 1 degree latitude results in 0.5 degree C (about 1 degree F) change in temperature.



1 degree latitude is about 69 miles.

If temperatures were expected to rise 2.5 degrees C in 100 years, a person would need to move 5 degrees latitude, or 345 miles to offset it (about 3.5 miles per year). I guess we'll see everyone in Sacramento moving to Medford in the next 100 years.

Supposed to be 100 degrees the next couple days here in what has otherwise been a pretty mild summer.

They tried cap and tax when they had the unvetoable super majority and it still failed.
The new green deal is all the tax, none of the cap and more free shtuff.
The new green deal was dead on arrival in the senate. Most of the senate democrats wouldn't even touch it.
2 reasons you know they gave up on the new green deal as a standalone bill.
1 If they knew it could pass on its own then why did they try to roll the new green deal in with the china virus stimulus package.
2 AOC only gets 1 minute at the convention.
3 climate change worrying hasn't polled above single digits for about 8 years.

I'm sure it will briefly return in zombie form for a little while when the virus burns it self out and fake race riots run out of money.

It was more about 'do you have a moment to talk about...', as I hear a cult frame of mind.

Via Suspicious 0bservers:

Global Warming, Climate Change, Green New Deal.... It's all gradualism. Catastophism will eat their lunch.

If the weather warfare floods and locusts don't get us first.

I'd missed yesterday's S0, there's this:
news.osu.edu: Warming Greenland ice sheet passes point of no return
Quote:
The glaciers have shrunk back enough that many of them are sitting in deeper water, meaning more ice is in contact with water. Warm ocean water melts glacier ice, and also makes it difficult for the glaciers to grow back to their previous positions.

That means that even if humans were somehow miraculously able to stop climate change in its tracks, ice lost from glaciers draining ice to the ocean would likely still exceed ice gained from snow accumulation, and the ice sheet would continue to shrink for some time.

“Glacier retreat has knocked the dynamics of the whole ice sheet into a constant state of loss,” said Ian Howat, a co-author on the paper, professor of earth sciences and distinguished university scholar at Ohio State. “Even if the climate were to stay the same or even get a little colder, the ice sheet would still be losing mass.”
They go on to talk about rising sea levels. But if it shuts down the Gulf Stream, then ==>Snowball!

Oh that's nothing the lack of magnetic field on earth will get us first. I think it was a week ago the Coronal hole stream knocked out Australian communication satellites, that's not even a solar storm. So now we have mundane space weather damaging stuff.

Reverse lightning strike on the Oriental Pearl tower in Shanghai?

Suspicious 0bserver's position is that this is the penultimate Solar Minimum. The next one will blow a shell of material off the Sun in a micro-nova in the mid-2030s.

Future archeologists will interpret it as meteors. Like we do with 0bserver's Trench.

I didn't say earth's magnetic field was going to flip.
But since 1860 the earth has lost 20% of the field strength, most of that 20% since 2000.
Thr north and south poles have moved more in our lifetimes than they did previously going back to the1600s.
This may be a magnetic excursion, where the poles move so far then go back. The earth's magnetic field strength is pretty much guaranteed to drop at least 50% and will likely fall below 20%.
For all we know the only thing that might be able to flip the poles is when a super solar storm hits during a magnetic excursion and pushes the poles a full 180 degrees. The magnetic excursion may be a regular event happening every 10 to 20 thousand years.
