Environmentalists Becoming Hysterical As “Climate Change” Scam Falls Apart

 The “Climate Change/Global Warming” crowd is reaching the point of hysteria. Fewer and fewer people are taking them seriously anymore.
Their drastic, proposed global regulations are being rejected by many countries around the world. 
And, many of their dire predictions just haven’t come true – the computer models upon which they base their alarmism have proven to be false.

All of this rejection is making them more desperate and looney. 
Now, they are proposing bizarre solutions to stop the non-existent “global warming” that isn’t happening. reports:
(Bloomberg) – As talks aimed at slowing global warming drag on, researchers are pushing new ideas that some are calling last-ditch attempts to avert the worst effects of climate change.
Some proposals are uncontroversial, such as using charcoal to lock carbon dioxide into soil or scattering carbon-absorbing gemstones. Richard Branson, the billionaire chairman of Virgin Group Ltd., has offered a $25 million prize for the best solution in the field known as geoengineering.
Other ideas to cool the planet have scientists worried about unintended consequences. There are proposals, untested at scale and with uncertain costs, to block the sun’s rays with airborne particles or seed the oceans with carbon-absorbing iron. That they’re even being considered reveals both frustration over government inaction and skepticism that policy alone will solve the problem.
And, this is called “mainstream” by the national media!  No wonder no one trusts either the nightly news or the government anymore. gives more details:
“For the last 20 to 30 years, governments, at the back of their minds, have assumed that mitigation is the main way forward,” said Mark Maslin, a fellow at the U.K.’s Royal Geographical Society. Researchers now realize that the planet needs “other urgent ways of dealing with CO2.”
Interest in geoengineering comes after two decades of United Nations talks that have yet to produce a global climate-change agreement. Envoys from about 200 nations will meet December in Paris, where they’re expected to finalize a pact to curb carbon emissions.
So what are these crazy ideas that are being pushed now? explains:
Tinkering with the planet’s climate may carry more risk than efforts to reduce carbon emissions, said David Titley, a professor in Pennsylvania State University’s department of meteorology.
“Climate intervention involves techniques that are of high and unknown risk,” he said. “The risks for mitigation and adaptation are understood and manageable.”
Branson’s Virgin Earth Challenge began in 2007 and announced 11 finalists in 2011. The winner must be able to remove 1 billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere annually for 10 years and be economically viable, among other criteria. Branson hasn’t said when the prize will be awarded, if ever.
The goal is to “find true breakthroughs and hopefully create new ways of attacking the climate change problem,” Branson said in an interview.
“CO2 reduction at any sufficient scale is unlikely to happen soon, considering the fact that the priorities of China and India are on developing their economies, and both dispose of huge coal reserves,” said Olaf Schuiling, scientific adviser at Smart Stones, one of the Earth Challenge finalists.
Smart Stones, based in the Netherlands, is working with olivine, a yellow-green mineral found abundantly in the earth’s crust. Once a favorite of Egyptian jewelery makers, olivine absorbs CO2 as it weathers. The idea is to mine olivine, crush it and scatter it over land.
A ton of olivine can capture about a ton of CO2. Cost estimates range from 3 pounds to 41 pounds ($4.60 to $63) a ton. “I could make sure that every year as much CO2 is absorbed by this method as is emitted by humans,” he said.
 There you go – to save the planet we all need to scatter little green rocks everywhere!  Sounds like something out of the Wizard of Oz.  But it gets even more silly as reveals:
Another finalist is Zurich-based Climeworks AG, which is developing mobile systems to capture CO2 in filters. The gas is injected into greenhouses to promote plant growth or used in carbonated drinks.
The Biochar Co., also a finalist, takes waste wood from lumber mills and bakes it at high temperatures to produce biochar, a black compost-like material that can be added to soil to boost its quality and productivity.
Biochar also locks CO2 into soil for hundreds or even thousands of years. For every pound (454 grams) of biochar added to soil, about 1.5 pounds of CO2 is sequestered, the company said.
This reminds me of the old tales of the “rainmaker” in America’s 19th century midwest and west.  During times of drought, the “rainmaker” would come into town and offer to make it rain for a price. 
The desperate and gullible farmers would pay the price and hope for the best.  During the night, the “rainmaker” would silently slip away and go onto the next dry town. 
It was a scam then just like these goofy ideas are money-making scams now.
If some eccentric billionaire offered you $25 million dollars to invent something to help the planet, it might make all of us into instant inventors.

And, of course gullible politicians like President Obama might just throw billions of taxpayer dollars at similar scams. (Solyndra comes to mind.)
I’m just waiting for some Hollywood type to latch on to one of these scams and hold a telethon to promote it.  Maybe they could have a special holiday where everyone holds their breath for 30 seconds to reduce the amount of CO2 breathed out by humanity.
Whatever the case, when you mix irrational environmentalism with big “green” bucks, this is what you get.


  1. We are heading into a new Little Ice Age with shorter growing seasons. Plants will need every little Part Per Million they can get. CO2 is plant food and these creeps are doing expensive and destructive things to make it easier for us to starve. It's not just about the money and control, it's also about population reduction.

  2. It blows me away that such a big deal is being made over a natural gas CO2 that plants thrive on. Is this an actual effort to clean up the planet or a distraction from all the real pollution destroying our air, land, and water? Got to wonder when instead of discussing pollution and how to clean it up we are all arguing about the weather.

  3. Climate meme debunked as the ‘tropospheric hot spot’ is found

  4. They should turn their focus towards geo-engineering and start encouraging folks to get their blood checked for elevated levels of barium for starters.

  5. Gigs up scumbags...

  6. "Some proposals are uncontroversial, such as using charcoal to lock carbon dioxide into soil"

    How is that not controversial? Burying huge amounts of charcoal would require huge amounts of energy from petroleum, spewing more CO2 into the air. It would actually be more efficient to leave coal in the ground, but that would shut down 40% of US electricity production...

    "The idea is to mine olivine, crush it and scatter it over land."

    Another idea that would burn huge amounts of petroleum energy...

    "takes waste wood from lumber mills and bakes it at high temperatures to produce biochar"

    The baking and burying, again, require large amounts of energy, with the only current energy source to run the burying machinery being petroleum, exactly what the greenies want to burn less of.

    How did all of these otherwise intelligent people suddenly lose their ability to think this through?

    In my wilder moments of fantasy I've wondered if believers in the Gaia Hypothesis ( could subscribe to the proposal that because geologic processes over the history of the planet sequestered vast amounts of carbon under the surface, making it unreachable to the carbon-based life above, Gaia had to invent humans to dig it or pump it back to the surface where it could be burned, putting it back into circulation among all lifeforms (via plants first) as CO2. By this theory, it would be our duty, our reason for being here as intelligent life, to bring carbon to the surface and burn it.

  7. People need to understand that this false construct of 'climate change' being foisted by the NWO elite (0.01%) like the clowns in the Bilderberger /Mad Hatter's tea party... is a contrived orchestration to shoehorn in Agenda 21 & for them to get even more filthy rich with their carbon credit scam the research....cheers

  8. Eventually we won't be able to make more babies.

  9. Never mind about fiddling with the climate finding ways to lock up CO2, what about the real problem of nuclear pollution from Fukushima and finding ways to mop that up. Far more important, seeing as we managed to survive much warmer climates and ice ages without any technology at all.

  10. Climate change is all natural and is controlled by the Sun and always has been, making human's feel guilty for things has always been the elitist approach to controlling behavior and resources. I am more astonished by the lack of intelligence of the average person to believe in this 21st century scam of scams.

  11. "Is this an actual effort to clean up the planet or a distraction from all the real pollution destroying our air, land, and water?"
    It's a distraction.
    CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and humans create lots of it. But nowhere near enough to have the dire temperature increases predicted by the IPPC (the CO2 is at too low a concentration).
    We can't even measure the global temperature within the tiny ranges specified because our tools are too blunt and the climate is too chaotic. Statistically, for the whole planet - rather than just locally at the very point and specific time of measurement - it's like trying to measure the diameter of a thread of cotton with a ruler! i.e. The margin for error is far greater than the range we're trying to measure.....
    What we have here is a 1980s theory, which may or may not be incorrect, but which is increasingly looking to be incorrect. Some organisations supported the theory in good faith (the environmentalists), and others nefariously (government, carbon traders, big oil, certain scientists and scientific bodies etc).
    But even if the AGW theory proves to be correct, it's still a major DISTRACTION from a LOT of far more evil environmental woes. After all, a warmer world is probably better than a colder one. e.g. Few people recall the European Famine of 1315, a result of idiosyncratic global cooling, but we have a collective memory in the tale of Hansel and Gretel!

  12. Judy, you just hit the jackpot with your post. Indeed, plants will need every tiny Part Per Million they can get; as, CO2 is plant food; and these cretins are doing expensive, destructive things to make it easier for us to starve. The European Famine of 1315 (caused by a rapid cooling event) eventually led to the Black Death (bubonic plague) that wiped out around a third of the continent's population. What these scammers are doing isn't just about money/control, it's also about population reduction of 90%.

    The Georgia Guidestones says it all.

  13. " “Climate Change” Scam Falls Apart"
    Soon to be replaced by eco-sustainable, endless, misery
    With $6 Billion, Ted Turner will unleash the United Nations Foundation to
    Mind Control the dunderheads, with Agenda 21.

  14. IPCC got it wrong -- By lowering clouds, Greenhouse gases Cool.
    Net warming, of the near surface atmosphere, is from higher Potential Temperature. (heat flow is perpendicular to the Potential Temperature lines)
    (3 kilometer, 700 millibar, is warmed from above and from below)

  15. Fukashima will be responsible for that long before earth changes affect births

  16. I've always been opposed to nukular power...but suddenly, I'de like to see a reactor built in Detroit!(By shoddy civil-service union workers...just to hasten the Fukashima effect!).
