Chile explodes: Expensive climate policies spark mass riots, just like the Yellow Vest protests in France

Santiago metro train, Chile
Another case of out-of-touch politicians trying to impose their costly climate obsessions on the people and meeting strong resistance. Not getting the message yet?

Climate activists and the United Nations are suffering a major black eye this week as protests and riots resulting from high energy prices have erupted in Santiago, Chile, says The Epoch Times (via The GWPF).

Chile, which is hosting a major U.N. climate conference in December, earned praise from climate activists for recently imposing a carbon dioxide tax on conventional energy sources and switching the Santiago Metro system to renewable power.

Now, the people of Chile are rising up and firing a shot across the bow of other nations considering similar energy taxes and expensive renewable energy programs.

Watch “Rich White People Push Wokeness As A Status Symbol, Hurting Poor People”

Centre-left journalist Tim Pool reports on the pretty obvious – that those with power, money or influence advocate for that which they themselves do not practice. Hypocrisy 101.

Science Says: Get used to polar vortex outbreaks

So how long have they been measuring?
The first continued measurements of the stratosphere were taken by Richard Scherhag in 1951 using radiosondes to take reliable temperature readings in the upper stratosphere (~40 km) and he became the first to observe stratospheric warming on 27 January 1952. After his discovery, he assembled a team of meteorologists specifically to study the stratosphere at the Free University of Berlin and this group continued to map the northern-hemisphere stratospheric temperature and geopotential height for many years using radiosondes and rocketsondes.

In 1979 when the satellite era began, meteorological measurements became far more frequent. Although satellites were primarily used for the troposphere they also recorded data for the stratosphere. Today both satellites and stratospheric radiosondes are used to take measurements of the stratosphere.

So yeah let’s extrapolate from where there’s a paucity of data 🤨

P. S. The vortex wandering is more likely to be due to solar/lunar influences.

Changing polar vortex patterns and wavy jetstreams – do they suggest solar magnetic changes as sunspots decline, or another 0.01% of trace gases in the atmosphere, or something else? Much scientific head-scratching, although research has been going on for a while.

It might seem counterintuitive, but the dreaded polar vortex is bringing its icy grip to parts of the U.S. thanks to a sudden blast of warm air in the Arctic, writes Seth Borenstein.

Get used to it. The polar vortex has been wandering more often in recent years.

GIRAFFES Just Aren’t Going To Know What Snow Is

What the jetstream giveth in warmth, it can easily taketh away.

P.S. Jamie if only all cold weather was ‘weather’….if there’s an opportunity the climate change meme wants it all;

SOUTH AFRICA GIRAFFES SNOW - CLIMATISM SNOW in the Savannah – Climatism


Snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event.”
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”
Dr David VinerSenior scientist, climatic research unit (CRU)

THE planet’s “climate control knob” – CO2 – dumps a load of fresh global warming on the South African Savannah.

THE Guardian reports with no mention of “CLIMATE CHANGE”!?

ALAS, every organisation has rules and a code of conduct. The Guardian’s is easy…

HOT = CLIMATE

COLD = WEATHER

Spotted: giraffes in the snow

Antelope, rhinoceroses and elephants also photographed in icy conditions after late snowfall in South Africa

Animals more used to desert heat have been photographed enjoying the snow after a cold front brought snowfall to parts of South Africa over the weekend.

Hothouse Earth

When you receive finding from the EU, expect to be covered in c**p. The only reason this was the top story on the beeb since yesterday is due to desperation. As Joe B has capably shown its the Atlantic stupid and not trace gas.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Latest crap from the warmist establishment, gleefully blown up by the BBC

Climate change: ‘Hothouse Earth’ risks even if CO2 emissions slashed

It may sound like the title of a low budget sci-fi movie, but for planetary scientists, “Hothouse Earth” is a deadly serious concept.

Researchers believe we could soon cross a threshold leading to boiling hot temperatures and towering seas in the centuries to come.

Even if countries succeed in meeting their CO2 targets, we could still lurch on to this “irreversible pathway”.

Their study shows it could happen if global temperatures rise by 2C.

An international team of climate researchers, writing in the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, says the warming expected in the next few decades could turn some of the Earth’s natural forces – that currently protect us – into our enemies.

Each year the Earth’s forests, oceans and land…

Claim: London could run out of WATER in decades thanks to climate change and population rise

The only wrong kind we have is not weather, that will do as it always does, but swamp dwelling, ambulance chasers which sadly we may never run out of. The biggest threat we face is drowning in the effluent from their bloated, pustulent ignorant cake holes.

To pick up on what Kip wrote

[we should be cornered concerned with] an ever increasingly populous mostly focussed in the drier South – where we are more likely to pick up a drier continental flow than the more Atlantic influenced North and West – and a lack of reservoirs to deal with these dry patches we often hit along the way. According to a 2013 BBC article only one resevoir was built in London in the past 100 years:

Another day, another climate scare. This time it’s not enough rain, or – believe it or not – ‘climate change’ bringing the wrong kind of rain, to London as the Evening Standard reports.

Millions of extra litres of drinking water must be sourced to stop parts of London running dry over the coming decades, Thames Water has warned.
