Global Warming: Angst and Anxiety Syndrome (negative manifestations arise from fear)

“Since it is generally acknowledged that humanity have a desire to be happy and that they have the right to pursue happiness, we ask this question: Would it not be wise for people in all walks of life to work toward the healing of those conditions which they bring upon themselves through their unfruitful anxieties?

We avow that there are lawful concerns and that men and women should make reasonable provision for their future and for eventualities which they know from personal experience may arise. But it is so unnecessary for them to become apprehensive about life in general, or even life specifically, to the point where their apprehensions unbalance their thinking, their emotions, and their entire psyche.

Anxiety is the great warp of life. It warps perspective without producing any perceptible benefit whatsoever. Anxiety is the cause of people's tendency to hoard the goods of this world. Like frantic squirrels they pile up their winter's supply of nuts. They accumulate an oversupply of every imaginable item, and they deprive themselves of happiness by their unwarranted concerns and their unnecessary and time consuming preparations for every eventuality.
Just as we do not expect that the students will cease to be providential, so we do not expect that they will become unduly involved in antici- pating a doomsday that never arrives...”

Note: Until lately, the ‘human miscreation’ of ‘induced global warming’ had mostly been due to our not understanding the blanketing effect of carbon dioxide on infrared radiation. However, this single physical law shall now begin to increasingly inflict natural consequences upon all life on the planet because of our continued unsequestering of vast amounts of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide. 

The kinds of protections that God and His Angels provided that we routinely take for granted shall not be sufficient to totally protect us from ourselves — because God Almighty Himself bestowed Free Will upon us, protecting us from what we now knowingly inflict upon ourselves would be a violation of Cosmic Law.

However, any efforts that we take to mitigate the cause of our self inflicted curse will be blessed and multiplied exponentially. So, do not allow fear to blind you to the truth of what is, nor be driven into despair — neither attitude leads to the right kind of action!

Rigid Denial:

The Jesuits and Franciscans Who Survived Hiroshima and Nagasaki

In Hiroshima, a group of eight Jesuit priests lived in a presbytery near the parish church less than a mile away from where the first atomic bomb ever dropped on a city exploded well within the total death and devastation radius. Keep in mind this was a blast that killed 80,000 people almost instantly and up to a total of 140,000 eventually.
All eight priests in their home building sat in the direct kill zone while for miles around nothing but ashes remained. They were not only “virtually unscathed from the effects of the bomb” but none of the group suffered either the ill-effects of radiation or major injuries from the bomb blast.  Furthermore, while their building received some damage, unlike others it still stood.
While it is true that small numbers of other civilians in the blast area survived, all presumably suffered, and most if not all eventually died from radiation sickness.
What is truly miraculous is that radiation sickness did not affect ANY of the Jesuits at that time or decades later.
Why were these eight priests spared in an area of total death and destruction?

"In a strange parallel to what happened at Hiroshima, the Franciscan Friary established by St Maximilian Kolbe in Nagasaki was likewise unaffected by the bomb which fell there. St Maximilian, who was well-known for his devotion to the Blessed Virgin, had decided to go against the advice he had been given to build his friary in a certain location. When the bomb was dropped, the friary was protected from the force of the bomb by an intervening mountain. So both at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, can we see Mary’s protective hand at work?"

Why Have Russia’s Siberian Fires Been Under Reported?

For the past two months, widespread fires have been burning unchecked in Siberia. If you did not know, then ask yourself why? And why do we know more than we want to about Epstein, but not this stupendous event relating to advancing global warming. To see how small the media coverage has been, search:
russia siberia fires 2019 —
Then note the news organizations reporting and those not reporting and the overall lacking amount of coverage.

Though it’s tempting to think it’s simply part of the climate change denial and disinformation effort, I’m also remembering some of the near misses by significant sized asteroids that were not reported until they had actually passed (even though we’d been tracking them). Possible asteroid strikes and rampant global warming induced forest fires cause angst that might feed already heightened anxiety levels.

Perhaps, with the European heat wave and related coverage along with the preceding climate news from Australia etcetera, it was just too much. Or maybe, because it’s in Siberia, we just don’t care. Not click worthy? Whatever the reason(s), I find it disheartening that YouTube has been providing better coverage of this event than established news media.

Fighting Climate Change With Condoms

The world’s population is projected to jump to 9 billion by 2050, with more than 90 percent of that growth coming from developing countries. In countries with access to condoms and other contraceptives, average family sizes tend to fall significantly within a generation.

But, America’s “Global Gag Rule” thwarts the international family planning and health services effort.

It should be noted that the population growth in developing countries exacerbates efforts to curb carbon emissions:

Organized Global Warming Deniers

It seems that the ‘forces of darkness’ in the world have increasingly coalesced in the form of organizations specifically designed to propagate disinformation about ‘artificially induced climate change’ aka ‘global warming’. In the United States, they fly under the banner of nationalism claiming to be patriotic. In actuality, they’re primarily hacks for monied interests that benefit from the status quo that will necessarily have to transform if we are to mitigate the worst of what’s ahead. 
In short, Global Warming is about the blanketing effect that CO2 and other greenhouse gases have on infrared radiation. Nothing more, nothing less. All else is politics, which is “warfare in slow motion”.
Some of the lost souls are:
“CO2 Coalition”
Mercer Family Foundation
Heritage Foundation
Heartland Institute
Patrick Moore
William Happer 
Frank Clemente

"Why The Choir Was Late"

I first read this in Paul Harevey's book "The Rest of the Story".  The way he told it was far better than anything I could find on the internet, but follow along for a most remarkable true story:

When a Nebraska church exploded in 1950, no one was injured because every member of the choir was late arriving for practice that evening. As unbelievable as this story is, it did happen. Despite the explosion's taking place five minutes after choir practice was scheduled to begin, not one of the fifteen people who should have been present had yet arrived when the building collapsed....

The Travesty of Environmental Groups Supporting Increased Immigration, Etcetera

I used to donate to several environmental groups. Not anymore. The ones I’d supported have now all strongly allied themselves with the immigration cause and moved away from environmental resource protection. The worst betrayer is the Sierra Club. If the other organizations send me Take Action emails; and, if I agree, I respond. But, no more money from me until they take a more bipartisan posture. 

If you’re wondering whether or not an organization that you contribute to supports a cause that you do not, simply search: ‘organization’s name + cause topic’. And, if you are searching for organizations that support what is important to you, search “organizations that against/support ‘cause’”. Then vet them for other causes that you might be in favor of or not in favor of.

A dollar a day for something you believe in is a good thing; but, you have to be involved enough and knowledgeable enough to be sure that you’re putting it in the right arena.

Here are some organizations that I’m liking the looks of:
Nature Conservancy
Citizens Climate Lobby
Inside Climate News
Climate State
350 Action 

Represent Us (though not an environmental group, they are anti-corruption) and corruption is a major factor regarding climate change and environmental protection inaction:

What Were Safe CO2 Levels?

Mankind could reasonably claim ‘innocence by ignorance’ for the crime of “anthropogenic global warming” until 1984. That’s when the documentary “The Greenhouse Effect and Planet Earth” (31 minutes) was televised. If you watch just the first minute, you’ll see why.
Indeed, oil companies themselves, at that time, also warned the public, as did every successive US President (until the current one). We can rightfully blame any number of shady characters for disinformation campaigns and such; but, in the end, almost all of us are to blame to varying degrees. Thus, with this back story,

Carbon Dioxide’s “Goldilocks Zone”

Once upon a time, on this planet long long ago, a Great Oxygenation Event occurred and caused all life to slow as Cyanobacteria began to grow. Soon, all biospheric Carbon Dioxide nearly disappeared and so did all forms of life, too. But then, long term volcanic action saved the day and paved the way to restoring CO2 to much of its former glory.

Life gradually resumed and then it exploded, with all of Earth’s current biology seen in the former forms of our primordial ancestors. But then, on several occasions, CO2 became a monster instead of a savior whenever long term basaltic volcanic flows caused too much of it to be dumped into the biosphere so that great extinctions did follow. Afterwards, however, each time new forms of old life would gradually reappear and life did resume.

And so now, today, without the help of any heavy long term volcanic action, CO2 is again beginning to play a premiere role in the upcoming and ongoing extinction. Civilized life (in the form as we know it) is approaching a critical point of transition, and the fate of almost all  other life forms sharing our biosphere will be effected (with our demise being to their long term benefit).

Conclusion: Though the story of life on Earth shall continue on and on thru the annals of time and, as the current chapter is still being written, what we “do or don’t do” “in the now” will influence what happens thence, just as what occurred in the past manifests itself hence.

George Carlin: “Climate Change” Is A Euphemism (soft talk)

First, listen to:
George Carlin on Soft Language”
and/or read:

I think that George Carlin would’ve agreed that ‘climate change’ is a euphemism for Global Warming, which in turn, is soft talk for “planetary temperature increase caused by the blanketing effect of carbon dioxide on infrared radiation that will complete the Sixth Extinction already initiated by environmental degradation, biodiversity loss and ecological crisis that’s amplified by the overpopulation problem which we will now solve by burning every last bit of the remaining fossil fuels, even going so far as tapping into methane hydrate to make doubly sure that we completely and totally desecrate God’s Creation and then blame it on Him by saying that it was His Will.”

George Carlin: Circling the Drain

‪George Carlin, in the above four minute clip of an interview, says that he found a very liberating position for his 'comic voice' - that of not really caring if the outcome for the human experiment was successful or not. He gives up on wanting a positive outcome, and that he was now rooting for the "comet".‬

‪He, also,  said that he loves and treasures individuals / that the whole universe can be seen in their eyes when he meets them. But, he cares not for the groups they identify with and belong to -- that people give up their value as individuals for the sake of the group.‬

‪He does not blame politicians for our woes. "You get what you deserve, and you deserve what you get". Remember, that in the Preamble, it says We The People -- not them, these or those. People who hate government are committing suicide, because it's about self-government.‬


Climate Change: Merging Mitigation and Adaptation

Most ‘Deniers’ generally accept that our biosphere is warming, yet don’t accept the validity of the greenhouse effect. This, necessarily, eliminates most of their support for mitigation efforts — however, the secondary benefits of such (environmental improvements that improve the quality of life, etcetera) does attract some good Will from them.

Adaptation, however, is beginning to become more necessary (for some more than others).

“The distinction between mitigation and adaptation to climate change is somewhat artificial, and if we are to address the problem of climate change we need to start thinking of mitigation and adaptation in tandem – in one common box instead of two separate boxes, as we tend to do.... we are already locked into a certain degree of global warming and even very stringent mitigation action today will not be enough to stop the impacts of climate change for several decades (in the best case scenario); hence human society will have to adapt. However, we will reach certain tipping points beyond which adaptation will not be possible; so we have to mitigate NOW. Since mitigation reduces the rate and magnitude of warming, it also increases the time available for adaptation, potentially by several decades.”

“....the intersection of mitigation and adaptation with other societal goals can strengthen the basis for climate action. With a focus on meeting multiple objectives, increased co-benefits, and reduced adverse side effects, climate action can become much easier to undertake... the costs of action would be insignificant if one took the co-benefits into account – such as energy savings, reduced air pollution and better health, more efficient water and energy use, and job creation, among others...”

Global Warming: Comeasurement of Water Vapor and Carbon Dioxide

If you could bring all the clouds and water vapor in the atmosphere to the surface, it would form a ‘liquid’ layer less than an inch deep, and clouds alone would create a layer no deeper than a coat of paint. If just this past year’s carbon dioxide emissions could be confined to an undiluted layer of pure CO2 at the surface of the Earth, the layer would be about 1.5 inches thick. Now, multiply that.....

Global Warming & Average Human Life Expectancy

Before modern medicine, advanced agricultural, and improved  technology came along, the human population level was not as big a threat to other life forms as now. Indeed, human mortality rates and manifestations of the four horsemen kept our numbers much more in check. The average human life expectancy was much lower than now; but, we are now approaching a time when no amount of ingenuity nor scientific advancements will keep the former level of average human life expectancy from reasserting itself. 

For the average individual, this means that the former level uncertainties of survival will resume as average global temperatures increase due to the increased blanketing effect that CO2 and other greenhouse gases have on infrared radiation. Nothing more, nothing less. Everything else is politics.

Sago Palms: Bane of Dogs, Humans and Animals

Also known as Cycas revoluta, this palm species is not only toxic to dogs, but also to humans. The seeds and nuts of sago are the most toxic parts of the palm. This palm contains a toxic chemical called ‘cycasin’. When ingested in large quantities (any part of the plant), it can harm the liver and neurological system permanently. Other than this, diarrhea, dizziness, bleeding from orifices, hind-limb paralysis, and seizures are a few signs a dog will show after its ingestion.
Poisonous Palms

Sago Palms, or Cycas revoluta, are very pretty as a landscaping plant, but they are VERY poisonous to dogs, cats, and humans

Cycas Revoluta, or the Sago Palm, has a deceiving name. It is not a palm at all, but a ‘cycad’. Poisonous to animals and humans. Sago seeds are a yummy treat. They can’t help but enjoy the crunchy nutty flavor.

Concentrations of cycasin, the primary toxin in cycads, are highest in the seeds and roots, but present in all parts of the plant. Ingestion of as few as one to two seeds can be fatal in dogs. Mortality has been reported to vary between 32% and 58%.

Dying Orchards, Missing Fish as Climate Change Fueled Europe’s Record Heat

“Earth’s hottest June on record was followed by a sizzling July that either tied or exceeded another global extreme. New studies point to global warming connections.”

Mild late winters are increasingly morphing directly into hot summer-like temperatures, often without beneficial spring rains, and trees are having a hard time keeping up with the changes. Some are dying, reflecting the global warming damage seen in forests elsewhere.

My Comment: Meanwhile, “artificially induced  climate change” is a human miscreation caused by the increased blanketing effect that CO2 and other greenhouse gases have on infrared radiation. Nothing more, nothing less. Everything else is politics.

CO2 Has Now Surpassed 413 ppm: What Does That Even Mean?

Since the start of the Industrial Revolution, when people began burning fossil fuels on a vast scale, global temperatures have risen about 1 degree Celsius, or about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, with the warming driven by the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide, from about 280 ppm to more than 410 ppm for the first time in recorded history.

CO2 constitutes a minuscule 0.041% by volume of the atmosphere.
With this in mind, how much is that in terms that I can visualize?

Note: If just this past year’s carbon dioxide emissions could be confined to an undiluted layer of pure CO2 at the surface of the Earth, the layer would be about 1.5 inches thick. Now, multiply that.....

Note: If you could bring all the clouds and water vapor in the atmosphere to the surface, it would form a liquid layer less than an inch deep, and clouds alone would create a layer no deeper than a coat of paint.

Degrees of Human Callousness

As I observe people driving oversized vehicles and building oversized homes, it seems to me that they believe cheap oil will continue on relatively forever. It, also, occurs to me that they either don’t believe in the greenhouse effect, or else they simply don’t care about further amplifying it.

These factors point to a certain ‘density of character’ that belies the level of insightfulness necessary for advanced cooperative efforts if our society is to survive the upcoming trials, much less thrive. This apparent lack of sensitivity towards self and towards others is, also, indicative of a soul that’s calloused enough to block the spirit’s efforts to guide and protect. Indeed, it’s doubtful that the nurturing of the soul is even taken into consideration, and it’s likely that the idea of karma and group karma are alien concepts not worthy of application.
Note: If humans were angelic, any form of government would work because our actions would be purely cooperative and mutually beneficial.

The 1984 Climate Change Documentary (we were very clearly warned)

“During the late 1970s it became increasingly clear that the planet was warming, culminating in the landmark Charney report, published in 1979, The Charney Report: 40 years ago, scientists accurately predicted climate change.

This 1984 documentary outlines our understanding of global climate change at the time.

Topics discussed include, the scientific consensus, weather patterns, sea level rise, adaptation, climate actions, or the greenhouse effect.

There's weather, and then there's climate. Weather patterns come and go, but forecasting has become much more accurate through improved meteorological techniques. Climate change is harder to predict. But, as the CBC's Peter Kent shows in this 1984 documentary, it's happening. Carbon dioxide levels in the Earth's atmosphere have been steadily rising...”

Mega Eruptions: Disrupt Climate and Often Extinction Events

In looking at mass extinctions, LIPs (large igneous province events) induced almost all of them. But not the one created by Cyanobacteria called the Great Oxidation Event. In the other cases, either excessive amounts of sulfur dioxide SO2 or CO2 carbon dioxide were pumped into the atmosphere in such huge quantities that the biosphere was polluted to the point that much of life died off. With SO2, it was global cooling. With CO2, it was global warming. 
Note: Large amounts of sulfur dioxide lead to short-term cooling (on the scale of tens of years), while carbon dioxide and methane cause long-term global warming (lasting thousands of years).

Since 1965, Presidents and Oil Industry Leaders Warned Us About Global Warming

Though the first clear scientific warnings about global warming came at the same that Milankovitch Cycles were defined, succeeding clarions were sounded more and more until in 1965 government and oil industry leaders sounded a warning that was clear and dire — and the source unexpected. “This report unquestionably will fan emotions, raise fears, and bring demand for action,” the president of the American Petroleum Institute (API) told an oil industry conference, as he described research into climate change caused by fossil fuels.

Every President Since JFK Warned About Climate Change:
