Ever get the feeling you’re being lied to?

Thursday/Friday blog

First, apologies that my website disappeared for a while. It seems the company hosting my website had a complete breakdown. And as I guess most of its engineers were probably skiving at home, it took a while to fix the problem.

Is the Earth really boiling?

Last year we were told that the world was burning and the (IMHO) idiot UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, warned us that it was ‘code red for humanity’:

This year it’s apparently even worse as we supposedly experience the hottest July ‘since records began’ (though we’re never told what that actually means) and Guterres upped the ante by declaring that we’re now in the era of ‘global boiling’:

Our ever truthful, ever helpful BBC have changed the colour of their weather maps to reflect the fiery Armageddon facing us, from this:

To this:

And now, on snouts-in-the-trough, I’m pleased to bring you for the first time the latest BBC weather map:

But then I thought it might be worth checking the facts rather than the usual BBC and mainstream-media climate-catastrophist nonsense.

Here’s the latest chart based on NASA satellite data showing how much of the Earth’s land was burnt each year from 2001 to 2022:

And here’s a comparison of the burned amount (on the left chart) and the number of times wildfires get mentioned in the media (on the right chart):

Have you ever thought we’re being manipulated by our rulers and the compliant click-bait-hungry mainstream media as they soften us up for and nudge/coerce us to accept their 15-minute cities, individual carbon budgets and car-free, insect-eating, cold and miserable ‘climate-lockdowns’ future?

    Assume this is the great work of the nudge unit who like to use threats and fear to enforce state communism.

    Worth reading the Alistair Heath piece in daily telegraph which outlines the horrifying soviet system that has been imposed on britain without the consent of electorate. Here is a couple of quotes.

    Unbeknown to most voters, the central planners have also been unleashed on Britain – not to maximise the production of widgets, but to make sure we reach net zero.

    A green nomenklatura now yields immense power. Tories, Labour, Lib Dems: all have signed up to legally binding five-year plans, known as “carbon budgets”, which stipulate a detailed programme to re-engineer society to cut emissions by a specific amount. Scandalously, what the electorate thinks of these grossly under-scrutinised plans matters little.

    Did you know, dear reader, that we are now on our fourth such carbon budget, valid from 2023 to 2027? Did you realise that the next two – up until 2037 – have already been enshrined in law, making a mockery of the next two or even three general elections? Were you aware that all of the consumer-facing changes – in 18 months, no newly built home will be fitted with a gas boiler, in seven years’ time, it will be illegal to buy new petrol cars, in 12 years, you will no longer be allowed to replace your existing boiler like-for-like – have been accounted for in the plans, gravely limiting room for political manoeuvre? Did you realise that any significant deviation from these carbon budgets could trigger legal action from pressure groups?

    All this is starting to have the feel of Marianne Antoinette with rich mps often living in grade i listed mansions largely immune from all the above impoverishing the prols in a uk which will start to look more like their beloved Cuba every day as this nonsense rolls out.

    Not lies, propaganda, as Paul says. Ideologies have taken over and are being adopted by many organisations, companies, banks, political parties and NGOs. The ideologies are everywhere with no obvious group of people promoting them, so nobody can be held accountable. This makes the ideologies even more acceptable by the masses. But there is undoubtedly a controlling elite behind it all which is the case throughout human civilisation but in the past we can identify the elites – Pharos, Emperors, Kings, the Church, tyrants. Then they came up with the greatest con trick of all – democracy, and we fell for the belief that we were in control of the politicians. A new version of feudalism is on its way.

    Here’s an interesting snippet – Smithsonian Magazine, Feb 28th, 2017.

    ”While wildfires are a natural phenomenon usually sparked by lightning, it turns out the recent destruction isn’t all Mother Nature’s fault. A new study shows that 84 percent of wildfires in the United States are started intentionally by humans or by human activity.”

    ”Researchers from the University of Colorado, Boulder’s Earth Lab took a deep dive into the U.S. Forest Service’s Fire Program Analysis-Fire Occurrence Database, analyzing all wildfires recorded between 1992 and 2012. The researchers found that humans caused more than 1.2 million of the 1.5 million blazes in the database.”

    ”Debris burning starts the most human-caused fires, at 29 percent, with arson the cause of 21 percent of fires. Equipment use causes 11 percent of fires, while campfires and children playing with fireworks or matches each cause 5 percent of fires. The Fourth of July, predictably, is the biggest day for wildfires, with 7,762 fires ignited on that date over the 21-year study period.”

    I doubt that much has changed since 2017.

    The Telegraph has a good article -but behind a paywall

    Net zero is a trojan horse for the total destruction of western society -Alister Heath
    public is not being told the truth about net zero

    Maybe someone could download and post online –
    The left wing sections of the press notably Guardian and Mirror run lots of climate change propaganda
