Climate Change killed only 70% during a heat wave?

Saw this this morning:

Do people really not see how stupid a lot of this climate change hysteria sounds?  Got some questions.

  • How does one determine who died of “climate change” and who just died because it was hot?
  • If Paris has not experienced increased temperatures since then, wouldn’t that mean it wasn’t actually climate change, but just a fluke really hot summer?
  • If it definitely was “climate change”, and it’s not been that hot since, then that means the “climate change” must have been fixed, right?
  • If “climate change” only accounted for 70% of the heat-related deaths, what caused the heat that killed the other 30%?

Maybe we should take a quick look-see and see what’s actually happened in Paris since then.  This shouldn’t be too hard.

OK, “climate change” means the “climate” has changed, right?  Not just some one-off weather incident like a heat wave, but that it has “changed”.  Right?

Right.

Given that the “climate” is almost exactly what it was in 1998 gives no support at all to the argument that Paris has experienced “climate change”.  Therefore, the event of 2003 was simply what was previously referred to as a “heat wave“.  Once it passed, Paris’s climate returned to normal.  And for several years after that “heat wave”, it was actually cooler than it had been before the speculated “climate change” occurred just in 2003 that killed 70% of the people who died during that event.

Now that Paris is obviously cooling, since it’s not as hot as it was in 2003, does that mean we go back to the Impending Ice Age scare of the 70’s?

 

CNN goes to bat for Hillary again, don’t question her health

Even with headlines like:

Hillary Clinton faints during speech

Which came from CNN.  As well as numerous bizarre comments during her speeches such as increasing taxes on the middle class and dizzy spells during speeches, CNN is quick to assure us all that her health and mental state are just fine.  And, even though there has never been any reason to question the health of Trump, the fact that there are no headline events reflecting his health is the reason we should cast doubt on his health.

I kid you not.

Clinton’s health is fine, but what about Trump?

Seriously, Gregory Krieg wrote this.

Nothing to look at there according to Krieg, that’s a perfectly healthy mind at work there.

That makes all the sense in the world.  Since the wealthy don’t pay enough taxes, she wants to tax the middle class even more.  Krieg, that’s another momentary black-out.  Either she really does plan to tax the middle class, which she now denies, and forgot to lie about it, OR, she got confused again, which would lead the average person to think something’s just not quite right.

And, my favorite:

Absolutely nothing to worry about there, huh, Krieg?

And why does Krieg, ergo CNN, think we need to worry about Trump instead of all that lunacy?

Snopes going to bat for a liberal, again?

Dan Evon at Snopes is just all bothered by the meme implying John Kerry said that refrigerators and air conditioners are AS dangerous as ISIS.  He even states that the meme is “ridiculous”.  That’s his word, not mine.  But, he’s right.  Here’s what Kerry actually did say, according to Evon:

Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations — defense ministers and foreign ministers — as we were working together on the challenge of Daesh, ISIL, and terrorism. It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we — you — are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself. Week after week, month after month, year after year, we continue to see new evidence, scientific evidence, tangible evidence, of the danger that climate change poses to life on our planet. Last year was the hottest year in recorded history by far. Last month, the hottest month recorded. The month before that was the hottest month recorded. 2016 is on track to be hotter than last year. And the decade was the hottest decade in history, and the decade before that the second hottest in history, and the decade before that the third hottest in history.

That’s right, Dan.  Kerry didn’t say hydrofluorocarbons used in refrigerators and air conditioners were of EQUAL threat, he said they would end life on the planet whereas ISIS isn’t really much of a threat to the world since it’s now losing.

Snopes used to be objective and non-partisan.  People just trusted that Snopes was non-biased when quoting their rebuttals to rumors.

Now, not so much apparently.  Dan Evon is embarrassingly wrong on this one and obviously doesn’t even care.  I mostly cited his story when rebutting his story.  Kerry, according to Evon’s own quotes, DOES mention ISIS, refrigerators, and air conditioners, and does say their use is MORE dangerous than ISIS.  Snopes needs to fact check Snopes a lot better.

There’s not much we can do about Snopes’ biased “debunking”, but we can help John Kerry achieve his utopian dream of no more air conditioners:

About Cruz’s Trump endorsement

Ted Cruz not endorsing Trump would have meant something if it weren’t for this:

Ted gave his word he’d support the nominee.

As of last night’s self-absorbed speech that meant practically nothing, that nothing means even less because it very openly laid bare how seriously Cruz takes his own word. Not that most voters really seem to care about a candidate’s word any more, Cruz pretty much just negated any impact his speech might have had by not raising his hand in the past. No damage whatsoever to Trump here. The Republicans who seem to think having Hillary as president is better than having a member of their own party still feel that way. Cruz could have brought some of them into the fold, but refused to do so. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t like Cruz before, he’s politically toast now.

And best I recall, John Kasich accepted the pledge as well.

And oddly enough, the only one who withheld from asserting he’d support whoever the candidate was, was Trump.
