Climate Change

This is, by far, the toughest subject I have tried to tackle, so bear with me as I try to illustrate why and how I made a 180º degree turn. In the interest of brevity and clarity, I’m not going to mince my words

I started this post in Sep, 2014 which was not long after being awakened from my brain dead existence in late 2013. The original content of this post clearly shows that I was a believer in global warming at that time. Even then, the cracks were beginning to appear as it became clear to me that anyone using the term “global warming” was a complete idiot. I really wanted to believe; being an old hippie from the 70’s, anti big business, anti war, and so on.

Now, 2 years after arising from a very long coma, with my brain efficiency improving (I hope), I can re-examine this subject from a fresher personal perspective:
# 1, follow the money.
#2, all central and most major banks are the most evil entity in existence.
#3, almost all politicians are corrupt to their core, the higher they rise, the more so.
#4, most major corporations are a detriment to our lives
#5, it is all about power and greed, NOTHING else matters.

In my view the central issue is energy. Cheap and abundant energy is the key to social & economic progress.
The first world became the dominant  global power because of carbon energy.

3 worlds

The second world evolved from the communist bloc during the Cold War, and also has access to carbon energy.
The third world is all the remaining countries who have considerable resources, but not the technology or funding to develop said resources.
Currently, the 2nd world is seriously challenging America’s global hegemony, while America is trying to prevent 3rd world development of their carbon resources, through restrictions born of their Climate Change agenda. Of course, the USA will be more than happy to provide wind & solar power to the 3rd world in exchange for access to their natural resources.

If the list of videos below appear overwhelming, then you can watch the video immediately below. It summarizes the issue in less than 8 minutes.

11 years of burning  fossil fuels at current rates before the the climate system is pushed past the tipping point.

The fossil fuel industry and skeptics haven’t done the slightest thing to refute the above statement.

Maximum CO2 release by 2050 = 565 Gigatons <> Proven Reserves in the ground 2,795 Gigatons 
80% must stay in the ground = $20 Trillion Write Off for the Fossil Fuel corporations

Economics

In 1963, my first year at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia U), my favorite course was Economics 211 (introductory economics, usually called 101). It was a very popular course and had an excellent professor, Muriel Armstrong.

I was a Commerce student following an accounting major degree, but I fell in love with economics. What I liked most was how economics made sense of daily life. There are many “things” in life that we intuitively feel are somehow connected to other things , sometimes related, sometimes not. For example “supply & demand”.  We know intuitively if there is a lot of something, the price will be relatively accessible. If there is scarcity, then the price will likely go up  and keep rising.

In my 2nd year, I switched my major to economics. (accounting was brutal with 15 hr assignments, which seriously cut into my drinking time at the (in)famous Stanley Tavern). That year. 1964, I signed up for Price Theory (Economics 411) which, if I recall, was a newly emerging theory. What a pile of bullshit! Tons of highly complex formulas that had absolutely nothing to do with the real world. And this was before computers (which were just emerging), so it took hours to generate data that had nothing to do with anything.

I may not be the smartest guy around, but I sure ain’t the dumbest either.  Over the last 50 years, my attitude has been: if I can’t make sense of what a talking head is spouting at me, then it’s likely a pile of bullshit. (are all you politicans listening?) This attitude has served me well, especially with regard to economics (and other areas not relevant here). Whew! and all this, just to say.

What kind of idiots are we electing? When a government runs a deficit, that means that they are putting money into the economy, which is exactly what they should be doing to stimulate the economy. Even the IMF, the worst banking whore on the planet says so. So what does Harper, a so called economist, do? He’s going to run a surplus, taking money out of the economy!

Harper has the worst economic growth record of any PM in the last 80 years.  Will someone please go to Harper’s riding and let the voters know what their “representative” is doing.

Time to get rid of all these ‘politicians’, and elect some decent, moral Canadians who care about our country and its future.
