Climate Idiocy is Back

Yes.  Climate has been changing ever since the Laurentide Ice Sheet began to pull back from places farther south than Chicago.  St. Louis, perhaps?

Three serious reality checks:  No amount of political hype shuck and jive would have changed the ultra-slow motion melting.

Second reality check:  The world was never intended to support well north of 7.5 billion people.   And as we informed subscribers this week, if there is a major breakthrough in anti-aging medicine, we could be heading well north of 18-trillion humans in short order.

This is also why the Mexican border must continue leaking:  because the inflow of illegal drugs is killing an increasing number of Americans through overdose and suicide.  Two key reasons cited by CDC for the decline in American longevity overall.

So far, the data is abundantly clear:  We can’t buy a “climate answer” and with can’t allow the increasing pop-bomb which, oh by the way, happens to discriminate against Anglo countries which are being over-run by people who couldn’t solve their problems at home.

We desperately need not the lefty political spew but rather a global population problem.  Which we see the left pressing through inityi8atives like late-term abortion.

That’s what the data says.

What’s NOT said is there is another way:  Crash the industrialized world, choking the life out of it with punitive court decisions that will jump costs and crater profits such that the resulting economic decline will continue the roll-over of the lower-middle to a life of despair (ergo suicide) and escape (ergo, the drug epidemic).

But, just in case, here comes a federal court ruling that threatens to collapse the recent progress in American energy development.  You know, the one that has freed us from subservience to the OPEC’ers.

This Obama appointee, and BTW FISA Court member, (connect any dots you care to imagine, lol) is responsible for this gem:  “US judge halts hundreds of drilling projects in groundbreaking climate change ruling.”

Friend, this is legislating from the bench.  Democrats have been doing it for decades, so it’s nothing new.

Thanks to ad-hungry social media, which has been sabotaged with automated public belief-shifting tools, “climate change” has progressed from a very simple engineering problem (limited reproduction) and transition to higher fuel economy cars into a poisonous stew of half-wit ideas championed by political shills who (in turn) massively profit from “climate hysteria.”

Since Everything is a Business Model, we see effort to market gender-change (among other things), destroying the borders, and most recently the outrageous proposal to allow non-citizens to vote.

This “package” of climate, sexual-bending, and tearing down borders, is being foisted on the American middle class which (sadly) doesn’t see it coming.

AS always, the Left is using the Courts in order to further a political agenda.  They’re super-pissed that if Ruth Bader-Ginzberg falters, Trump will be allowed to name another Supreme Court Justice  though with less than two-years to the 2020 president purchase (it’s not an “election” – it’s a buy-off…) the left will be trying to subvert, through whatever means they can think of…right up to and including a restructuring of the High Court to make it easier for the leftists agendas to being law of the land.

It’s all such an elegant replay of 1929 and the balance of the Great Depression, it’s literally sickening.  Last time this “court packing” idea came along?  “Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937.”  Wiki it and you’ll see how it played:

“he Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937 (frequently called the “court-packing plan”) was a legislative initiative proposed by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to add more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Roosevelt’s purpose was to obtain favorable rulings regarding New Deal legislation that the court had ruled unconstitutional.[3] The central provision of the bill would have granted the President power to appoint an additional Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, up to a maximum of six, for every member of the court over the age of 70 years and 6 months. “

While there’s not really much in the way of “news” going on, we see that an attack of climate hysteria has begun to really “dig-in” and will halt (which means kill) lots of drilling projects.  And, at the same time the Lefty is working to subvert the Courts which is why stories like “Three ways dems want to remake the Supreme Court” demand your utmost attention.

Thank you.

(I should really only write about climate on Sunday’s since it is a full-fledged religion these days.)

The astute reader will have to agree with us, the  fundamental issues afoot in the world haven’t changed.  We still have not figured how to make the capitalist system responsive and able to easily weather economic declines.  We have not recognized that after three children, no more, and we still are not taxing machines that remove job opportunities from humans.

Those are the major roadblocks to a balanced future bad sadly none of the political parties have a clue.

The simple truth is the World is like a big aquarium.  Where the fish keep voting themselves more food to breed more fish.  Religions that promote larger-than-replacement family sizes are, in our view, committing crimes against humanity.  We’re in the midst of a Global Population War…that the Anglos have already lost due to political stupidity…and the courts.

We now return you to a more measured read of human failings.

Fed Kills Rate Hikes

Let’s talk about Immigration Pseudo-Growth. Yes, the Fed decided not to raise rates and we have hinted in our numerous stories about “lower-for-long” (L4L) that this was baked in the case.

But, the real story is the GDP growth rate released in the Fed supporting data out Wednesday because it makes precisely my point.

See the problem?  Projections are that GDP will only grow by 2.1 percent this year.  Then under 2 percent for years after 2019.  That totally sucks.

Bad?  It’s really much worse because we’ve become economically addicted to immigration as a growth-engine, the same way the stooges of the EU got addicted to immigration as “pseudo-growth” – though it’s a winner if you happen to be a bureaucrat.  Let me explain.

First, the population in the US was scheduled to increase 7-10ths of one percent this year.  With the huge inrush from south and central America, though, we’re penciling in a more likely 0.8 percent.  Which means?

When you back out 0.8 percent pop growth from 1.8 percent actual (which is in the range of outcomes next year) what we see is an economy that may grow (absent the immigration bump) about one percent.  This is one reason why we expect markets will falter this year and come tumbling down because working harder to a one percent increase in GDP means that the marginal rate of return is about to go negative.

The defining book on how all this works remains Joseph Tainter’s Collapse of Complex Societies 1ed (New Studies in Archaeology).  Buy the (wildly overpriced) paperback so you will have something to refer to when the web fails.

How does pseudo-growth from immigration work?  Three stages to it appear in my studies:

  1. There is an Initial positive impact.  New arrivals need to buy a place to live,. they need food, and that means some growth as new shops open and so forth.
  2. Then there is growth as the social cost of a competing culture shows up:  More social stress, so here comes ESL funding, here come more bureaucrats to put our hexalingual government documents.  More jobs of ICE *(idiots of the left notwithstanding)
  3. Then comes the institutionalized bump as taxes go up on everyone to pay for all the accrued social costs and with that we begin to pay the social costs.  But as we see with anti-Semitic spewing politicians now going to Washington, there will be pseudo-growth in the political sphere.  Competitive fund-raising and “bidding and buying” of America’s changed future.

One could argue that this is graceful.  We don’t take sides on it, other than to say it’s a damn shame that the really big money in all this will go to lawyers.  But, stripped and sold out by earlier legions of politicians, America is now a land where only weather, sex, and ideas can be monetized.  For everything else?  See China.

See why I’m taking a break and heading for a casino as soon as this is clicked to publish?  Last dance on the Titanic.


Dow futures down 100 said the smiling day-trader who will close a short position before getting “out of pocket.”

Gold’s up nearly $14 bucks because in a no-growth world of equities, other than “accounting trickery earnings” how much money do you figure you can make in a one-percent growth rate economy?

One born every minute, though.  So good luck on finding a Greater Fool to sell to.  Bitcoins were at $4,044 when I checked so a good stock of candidates there.

Philly Fed Data

Just out this a bump in the current activity but a decline in the 6-month view in the data:

Red track is up, black trace is down, following?  Stocks discount the future some months out, so not a constructive report for markets.

Solar and wind firms call the ‘Green New Deal’ too extreme.  D’uh.

And why might I think of this as good news?  (More for moi?) U.S. whiskey exports dry up as tariffs bite.

OK, to the casino after closing a position.  Yee-haw… a few trip notes tomorrow…

  1. Humans are still subject to foundational natural laws. When any species overpopulates, something will happen to decimate that species. Interested in taking bets on which one will nearly wipe out humans? I’m putting my money on famine with a side order of pestilence.

  2. Hmmmm – G – U be talking about the same FISA judge that had visited Obummer White House on several occasions ? The one whose visits to WH are public record = visitors log, and said logs were being “held up/denied/withheld/Occulted by the Obumer library cabal? FISA Declas. is coming – gee I wonder what Vonn Mueller is stalling for?

    Yuse want greater longevity – cultivate De/virtue 24/7, and collect Qi. How to collect and work with Qi ….

    • You are right. My Dad cultivated his character, and deep love and service for his family and extended that love and caring to others. He lived 23 years after a congestive heart failure diagnosis, and always refused a pacemaker, and he lived long and happy. When he passed at 85, he didn’t look a day older than mid 50’s and he glowed. The last dream I had of him after he passed showed him on the other side looking to be in his mid 30’s , happy, energetic, having fun, keeping an eye on all of us, AND still glowing.

    • Qui Qui? You got an French Owl in your pocket?


      Qi Qi! Got plenty of that!

      Ca$h talks!!!!! bullsh!t wok’s!


  3. Climate Crumbles Conservatives’ Commonsense. (CCCC)

    Once again, if 97% of all reputable engineers said the bridge was defective, would you drive your family over it?

    Or rather would you demand that it be retrofitted? (Are you guys also against buying yearly fire insurance too? (Where the odds of a fire are like 1 in 400 rather than 97 out of 100?)

    So, Make America Cool Again. (MACA.) Build a Wall Against Global Warming.

    Had to go to sound bites because it seems that’s all that Conservatives can understand nowadays. LOL. Best, Mike.

    • `I don’t play bridge.
      I look at data (unadjusted)
      When I look, nothing to panic about.
      Now, let’s talk about the climate judge, shall we? Care to make a side bet on whether he’s one the FBI insiders “shopped” the Trump case to?

    • God Mike.. Insurance is basically putting coins in the slot machines.. your betting you will have a need to collect .. they are betting not..
      what is funny is IF.. a person put that same money in lets say savings bonds.. two grand a month becomes four grand a month double every seven years.. you would be a multi millionaire after twenty years or so…. unfortunately big banking and state regulations require you to have it. Its all a business model. the reason.I think is that. there is a good chunk of people that would spend it..

      Global Warming.. that is the same thing.. We haven’t moved to make the USA or any other country the next wonder of the world.. we build destroy rape and pillage the earth.. we use so much electricity.. ( much of it is vampire electric use that we don’t really see) I am not sure but think we must be getting close to four or five things that use cell technology per person as well..
      We as humans cannot afford to do that.. cut co2.. build a simple window sill filter everyone should make one.. and its pretty dang easy to do.. .. simple doesn’t take much to make and will clear 25 lbs of co2 out of the atmosphere per day. do the math 700 million times 25 a day.. now take that to the globe.. co2 emmisions are taken care of… cities. plant tree’s.. six per person or one small co2 the same thing.. it takes six to ten trees per car per year to handle the waste exhaust..Or one a simple replaceable and recyclable filter per person on lamp posts around the city.. and the awesome thing is the dang filter can be solar powered and cost under ten dollars to make buying retail.. you could probably build them for a dollar or two wholesale.( they have plastics that absorb co2 as well.. the problem I see with that is expelling the co2.. well you are just putting it back in the atmosphere and you have to have a way to contain or dispose of that there are other materials as well that absorb co2..most of which are ok but…. the co2 filter I have always suggested you get beneficial results plus a useful byproduct that can be sold and utilized..) instead we as guardians of our planet plant asphalt and concrete.. and we like SEX… yup god save us.. It is a nice pastime activity…. the cost of trying to retrofit the planet is not affordable by the people of the planet.. and carbon taxes.. that is just a joke.. a business model just like insurance..
      instead put the money into infrastructure.. strengthen out grid.. fix our bridges and roadways water lines and gas lines.. put americans back to work.. to try and fight global warming.. I fear the time has come and gone my friend.. even if we stopped all emissions globally right now the rates will continue to increase for fifty years.. and we would have to stop expanding right now.. that will not ever happen.. I hate the term global warming.. its climate change is going to happen.. it will happen again.. our presence and actions are speeding it up.. but we are not the cause.. as the earth warms so does the center of the earth .. there will be more volcanic action more earthquake actions.. temperature and storm fluctuations.. this is a given.. you and I imposing a carbon tax is just going to give some joker a bigger number on a sheet of paper.. he will do a shimmy shunga as he dances around his golden pillar and the change will happen anyway..

  4. George:
    You nailed it about the growth=”prosperity” delusion that’s been forced down our throats. There’s only so many square feet on this orb and the more it gets taken up/occupied/abused by the “kids” younger than 50yoa along with their demands for equality, priority, yada yada, it doesn’t take a “seer” to recognize the train-wreck we are headed toward. The cliche of “A train wreck is a thing of beauty to watch, as long as you’re not on the train” will hold true…

    Us “outbackers” will hopefully survive the mess and get back to “keeping it simple, stupid (KISS) even though life will change dramatically. EBM will still be around but hopefully the “business” of survival will lead to better interaction among those of us who survive the crash and burn of the idiocracy,

    Enjoy the casino trip and say “Hi” to my money if you’re anywhere near Vegas. We’ll be doing our weekly “gambling” with lotto games around here… had a 2 week “win streak” that netted a whoppin hundred bux for our $10/week support of the State/National lotto system.

  5. “US judge halts hundreds of drilling projects in groundbreaking climate change ruling.”

    The decision stems from an environmental lawsuit. WildEarth Guardians, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and the Western Environmental Law Center sued the BLM in 2016

    The decision is the first significant check on the climate impact of the Trump administration’s “energy-first” agenda

    First of all, please tell me how a 2016 lawsuit can possibly be a check on any Trump Administration initiative?

    Second of all, as far as I could tell from the WEG and Court websites (don’t even mess with the Guardian or the WaPo, they just copy/pasted the original from WEG and claimed it as “journalism”), no one seems to have defined “greenhouse gases.” Could this be because the two most-prevalent “greenhouse gases” are water and oxygen — both thousands of times more “greenhousy” than argon, CO2, methane, ozone, and all the toxic fluoride compounds, combined?

    • Or could it be because as the concentration of CO2 goes up, its impact as a greenhouse gas decline geometrically?

  6. All I can say is; Gearge is right! What errogance, what hubris, to think that “man” can effect the weather and change the climate!! When there is evidence that the climte data has been rigged and played with. Science has nothting to do with cliemate change. Like the 9th Circus out in Cali this radical, leftest Judge will be overturned and her ignorance and predisposed bias will be layed bare for all to see. They should impeach her for pailing to follow the law.

    • The hell of it is, WI, that the judge will not be scored-down for making such an egregious miscarriage of law. That’s the problem with the fed benches. If they get it wrong, they should suffer some pain. Lose more than xx percent at the SupCo and kick ’em down from the bench or at least bar them from hearing an immigration, environmental or whatever else their bias is overriding legal judgement on…

  7. “What’s NOT said is there is another way: ”

    Global bad crop year…

    Send the survivors to the tombs … I mean shelters.. Pop off a few high altitude nukes.. Our grid is pretty accessible so are the grids in other countries.. EMP’s take out 98% of the population .. The doors to the tombs open. We’re good to go. The earth’s environmental aspects will stabilize itself in about fifty years.
    There’s little damage the earth can stabilize..mankind moves forward.. Lets be real here.. Crypto or dollar.. Neither is really valuable unless you place values with it. The true goal is survival..existence.. You need assets from every walk of life.. I’m sure that’s one way..

    Of course I am fairly confident that they realize that having an asset that paid for a sheet of paper to gain prestige and job placements isn’t the way to do it

      • LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL Nope Bill… all of that has probably been in the planning stage since before I was born. LOL LOL LOL LOL

      • unfortunately.. I wasn’t invited to join in the deep tombs..( I mean shelters LOL) that is for special people and I don’t fit that category being a bottom feeder…
        I believe that there isn’t any such thing as secret information.. I believe that all information is released then discredited.. that way if it ever comes up.. why didn’t you tell us.. they can come back and say.. well we did.. it isn’t our fault you didn’t want to listen to us..
        since I wasn’t invited.. then that makes it MY responsibility to plan for my family and myself.. which is why the Mormon church has been saying for over a hundred years.. be prepared for the unexpected.. yet what is it.. last statistics I read was something like six percent have.. its a personal choice..

      • I don’t know if every Mormon Church does it but I remember a YouTube video of what happens when they reach through the curtains to take initiates’ hands and show them some of the secrets of the Church’s beliefs. I don’t remember everything but there was a definite extraterrestrial theme to a lot of it and maybe cataclysmic changes through the ages. If that’s true then I can understand the admonition for all Mormons to have a year’s worth of food on hand.

  8. You could have had an alternative headline that said Trump Idiocy is Back! After bashing a dead Senator and War Veteran, in a sickening, mentally disturbed way, he and his staff are doing exactly the same thing he criticized Hillary on ad infinitum. The White House is using private emails and What’s App to communicate with foreign governments and to conduct official government business. Where are the double standards of this “regime”?

    Each day, the Banana Republic of Trump just get’s weirder and weirder. Like his inherited wealth, of around $500 million that he mismanaged through a series of 6 bankruptcies and so on, Trump inherited an Economy and world status on the rise, only to see it about to implode under his watch.

    To make matters worse, according to US Joint Chief Of Staff Dunford, “Russia has used new technology to undertake “information operations, cyber operations, economic coercion, political influence, [and] unconventional military operations to advance [its] objectives. China, meanwhile, is racing toward development and potential domination of 5G mobile networks, which Dunford worried could affect not only “potential vulnerabilities in our systems… but also exchanging information with our allies and partners.” He argued that “any future capability along the lines of 5G has to be trusted,” and that Chinese domination of the technology could put the United States and its allies at a “competitive disadvantage.”

    For a President that wants America to “WIN”, he sure seems like he is positioning us to lose. Whose team is this guy really on. We need to bench this idiot.

    • Tell us who ISN’T “nukin’ futz” in D.C. today Marco? I’m not even sure Senator Paul still believes in The Constitution any more. Bernie’s encouraging us to go the way of NZ and turn into another offshoot of the kneelers. Occasional Cortex is just the tip of the Idiocracy wave (have you seen the articles that say she was the result of a casting call?). Omar, thank you pres. O’bummer for stacking the 5th Cong. Dist. with Muslims, gets a free pass at everything she does while everything else is falling apart out here in Fly-over Country. Oh, and you’re about to be swallowed up in a wave of plagues out in your Left Coast paradise:
      “Medieval” Diseases Flare as Unsanitary Living Conditions Proliferate” – Does Gucci make disposable booties? They do make $870 tennis shoes that are made to look dirty so you can fit in with all the commoners and still feel good about yourself.

  9. Just read The Mote in God’s Eye again, and now onto The Gripping Hand. Overpopulation leads to collapse, that’s the message.

    I’ve never read the Gripping Hand, published in 1993. The characters all have personal computer assistants in their homes and space ships that they call by name. Was the current Alexa et al technology already planned in 1993?
