Hot Russian Climate Porn

Russian Heat

The first thing if you are a self-respecting catastrophic anthropogenic global warming proponent — you have to make use of the summer. I mean, if you cannot capitalize on the hot part of the year, what good are you to the movement?

But you see, there is a chasm to be bridged over. You have to switch over from constantly beating the “weather is not climate” drum during the winter, loosen up on your inhibitions and sense of shame, and start saying: “A-ha! Now here’s weather we can actually call climate”.

Someone has to make the first leap. This summer, Michael Tobis has taken credit for doing that. It is the Russian Heat Wave™ that moved Tobis, it seems.

It feels to me, too, like I was first to say this publicly. I wonder if I really did manage to kick off the public conversation. I am pleased if I did.

This one really is different.

Explaining why is going to be tricky,…

All you need to do is be bold. Once you work up courage to overcome instincts holding you back – if you can break free, then the rest will follow (apparently).

I think that in terms of very public first movers, Michael Tobis was right in there. It takes one person to stand up and take that risk and say what needs to be said, and it takes a wave of others to follow in their wake. [Michael Tobis] has given courage to others to say their own thing on this.

On what basis has Michael Tobis taken “this risk”?

I want to explain my thinking in some detail on this, but I really don’t have the time to do it justice right now.

Observe the citation pressurehead building – with scientists who all point to the other person as the source.

This is Rob Carver speaking:

I agree with Michael Tobis’s take…

My hunch is that…

This is Brad Johnson speaking:

Some scientists are now stating the obvious: … Michael Tobis is “hazarding a guess” that …

And what did Tobis think like, during the unusual winter in the United States?

Not every bit of weather weirdness is anthropogenically forced.

This is how you do alarmism

You make up the story as you go along – the proof can come later. Not the other way round – which is how science, which the CAGW proponents are full of, is done.

“If you ask me as a scientist whether I have proved it, the answer is no — at least not yet.”
-NASA’s Gavin Schmidt

I wonder if it rates a real paper somewhere. That would be a novelty…

What is climate porn?

The Russian Heat Wave™ is climate porn, pure and simple. What is this climate porn? It is not an easy thing to pin down. But evidence for its sordid existence is solid. AGW sympathizers Ereaut and Segnit recognized it some time back – we see it everyday in our newspapers and magazines, with our own eyes. And it seems we all like it.

The debate over global warming and extremes has been well characterized as “climate porn.” And like porn it is not going away anytime soon, and perhaps nor should it, as everyone really seems to like it.

But to truly answer the question - “what is climate porn?” - one has to know what “what” is, what “is” is, and what “pornography” is. Help is available to answer to last part of our problem though. Please listen to Bill Hicks below for that ( ladies, cover your ears at the appropriate moments).

If we learn’t any from this brief video, it is this:

What is pornography?
Anything that lacks artistic merit and causes sexual thought.

So, what is climate pornography?
Anything that lacks climatic merit and causes global warming thoughts

  1. One of the problems of climatologists and the political ‘elite’ who promote it, is that they assume the ‘lesser mortals’ out there, are as dumb as they are.

    When losing an argument, charlatans and scoundrels resort to cant, lies and hyperbole, which only further undermines their already flimsy conjectures.

    Game set and match ancient one!

    Look at what Kevin Trenberth said last winter:
    “So one of the consequences of a warming ocean near a coastline like the East Coast and Washington, D.C., for instance, is that you can get dumped on with more snow, partly as a consequence of global warming.”

    They have to say something every season. Spring is “late”, summmer is “hotter”, winter is “snowier”. Whether these things are true or not is an entirely different thing, but they have to keep you reminded – that is the main goal.
