Climate Hype and Covid Tripe
Heat suits are now popular accessories among the WEF elite.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Back in the late 70’s Leonard Nimoy narrated a great climate warning that foretold how the world would soon be plunging into another humanity-destroying ice age. Today, it would be fire. Whether the world dies by fire or ice, there is always a new calamity in the news we should be afraid of.
“Hold it!” you yell. “You're the editor of The Daily Doom! You love calamities! They sell!”
Actually, what I love is truth. There are a lot of calamities that are not told, especially economic ones and health ones that the government wants to cover because it created them, and it wants to dodge the blame; or because it is still creating them, and it wants to continue its political agenda by pretending disastrous side-effects are not happening. I want to tell what isn’t being told in the mainstream news. There are also calamities that may be real, such as really hot weather, but are exaggerated anyway or appropriated to sell what the government or corporations want to sell. I want to give some perspective on the distortions.
As for the second point, “they sell,” they don’t sell really. At least, that is not my experience … after investing a year into The Daily Doom. Nor am I surprised they don’t sell after putting more than a decade into The Great Recession Blog. In fact, I shall soon be going back to real work and having to find a way to continue The Doom within a four-hour midday window that I am carving out in that work experience. One cannot fund something off their savings forever (but, thanks to those who are helping, I’ll keep trying).
There are a lot of juicy conspiracy theories out there I won’t touch. I could try to write The National Enquirer and publish stories about the Clintons biting heads off babies and feeding their bodies to Chelsie as she was growing up because that is what reptilian children need for nutrition, and the heads make good snacks for the parents; or I could publish all the stories I find about Klaus Schwab being seen on the street with hints of reptilian skin showing through his ultra-high-tech alien cloaking suit, but I try to stay with stories that I think are true, not stories that simply sell. So, The Daily Doom is not as juicy as many other sites.
Now, I may be wrong, and people are rarely reluctant to tell me I am; and I may just be depriving myself of the economic benefit that could be derived from selling conspiracy heroin, but so be it. I’m going to stay with only the conspiracies I believe have a strong shot at the truth while also debunking the
mainlining mainstream narratives that are popularly believed but overly hyped.
That is why, today, I start with the summer heat wave. I am actually surprised that only one of the stories I read blamed the Hawaii wildfires on climate change, even while saying no one had any idea how the fire started. If you don’t know how it started, how can you know it is due to climate change? Maybe it was due to an environment-saving catalytic converter on a jeep parked in a field of tall dry grass in the summertime in the normally desert part of Maui on an extremely windy day.
I like to publish the stories about climate calamities because weather is often amazing, but I am also leery whenever I hear the same climate mantra in every single story of weather disaster. At that point, it becomes clear that some group of people clearly have a story to sell. You don’t get that much harmony on something so hard to prove to the point that it floods every story of every flood and burns up every story of every heatwave throughout the year without some central major group, such as the WEF, pushing a single chosen narrative.
So, today, I’ve included a story in the headlines from a leading climate expert who broke away from her colleagues to now claim the whole human-caused explanation of climate change is a fake narrative. (See the headlines in boldface below.) This climate scientist, who originally drove some of the early climate-change narrative, now comes out of the closet and calls it “a manufactured consensus.” And she does this in the mainstream media, laying out the pressures she has faced since turning away from the narrative she helped launch.
Why did she turn? She says she took the scientific approach and analyzed what her critics had to say about her own work, and the science led her to believe she was WRONG. But you better not stand with the science and against the popular narrative. Judith Curry, the scientist who switched sides because she had no side she wanted to sell, tells John Stossel how the narrative is being pushed:
Media loved her when she published a study that seemed to show a dramatic increase in hurricane intensity.
“We found that the percent of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes had doubled,” says Curry. “This was picked up by the media,” and then climate alarmists realized, “Oh, here is the way to do it. Tie extreme weather events to global warming!”
…Curry’s “more intense” hurricanes gave them fuel.
“I was adopted by the environmental advocacy groups and the alarmists and I was treated like a rock star,” Curry recounts. “Flown all over the place to meet with politicians.”
But then some researchers pointed out gaps in her research — years with low levels of hurricanes.
“Like a good scientist, I investigated,” says Curry. She realized that the critics were right. “Part of it was bad data. Part of it is natural climate variability.”
Curry was the unusual researcher who looked at criticism of her work and actually concluded “they had a point.”
Don’t go where the science leads you. They won’t love you for that. You are only a media darling so long as your “science” goes with the flow.
I don’t go with the flow. I’m not anyone’s darling, not a Democrat darling, not a Republican darling. Not a ReTrumplican darling either. Oh well. There is no popularity reward in, at least, trying to tell the truth. I can say from years of experience and observation, the people who are popular are those who belong to a club and who sell only what the club wants to buy. It doesn’t matter at all whether it is a liberal club or a conservative club so long as you sell only what the club wants to hear. Stray, and you’ll be rapidly punished.
That was Curry’s experience. All sides will hate you the moment you are not shilling for their side. And, so this scientist’s colleagues, who loved her for awhile, suddenly hated her and started doing everything they could to shut her down.
Then the Climategate scandal taught her that other climate researchers weren’t so open-minded. Alarmist scientists’ aggressive attempts to hide data suggesting climate change is not a crisis were revealed in leaked emails.
“Ugly things,” says Curry. “Avoiding Freedom of Information Act requests. Trying to get journal editors fired.”
It made Curry realize that there is a “climate change industry” set up to reward alarmism.
Some people think The Daily Doom is alarmist. Well, it is if there are alarm bells that need to be rung. Thus, if you read the economic news I posted today, you see plenty of alarms being rung. That is because there is plenty of reasons to sound economic alarms all over the world right now, but Biden and his buddies don’t want you to hear them because Biden is campaigning now on his great economic achievements. That’s the official narrative out of the White House. Stock analysts and major investors who want to see their portfolios remain high in value also don’t want you to hear it because they’ll lose money or sales the second people’s opiated eyes are opened. However, as you can see in those headlines, reality keeps crashing in on their fantasies. Relentlessly.
In the case of climate change, there are also people who do not want the full truth about the weather to be shared — only the side that supports the narrative. Who are those people?
“The origins go back to the … U.N. environmental program,” says Curry. Some U.N. officials were motivated by “anti-capitalism. They hated the oil companies and seized on the climate change issue to move their policies along.”
The U.N. created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
“The IPCC wasn’t supposed to focus on any benefits of warming. The IPCC’s mandate was to look for dangerous human-caused climate change.”
“Then the national funding agencies directed all the funding … assuming there are dangerous impacts.”
The researchers quickly figured out that the way to get funded was to make alarmist claims about “man-made climate change.”
Over the past year, it seems the human-caused climate change argument has become superheated — more than the weather itself. Another commentator in today’s headlines writes,
It’s clearer than ever what the next and final phase of the globalist cartel’s power grab over humanity will be. It’s now taking shape all around us.
Global warming hath become… Global Boiling.
I recently reported my own local story of how Governor Jay Inslee is using climate issues that do not even exist in my state to grab more power for the Washington Dept. of Ecology (his favorite group of acolytes) to seize more state authority over water rights. I demonstrated with photos of the exact region he’s claiming greater control over, how his “emergency drought” was causing the river to run higher than normal and leaving the fields around for miles greener than ever!
Inslee’s problem is that he is a power-hungry, liberal authoritarian who thinks big brother always nows best and should rule. He doesn’t want the fields to remain green as run by individual, climate-ignorant farmers because he wants to order the water to stay in the river … to save the salmon … and to provide water supply for more housing developments to hold all his sanctuaried immigrants and feed his big real-estate/developer donors.
So, Governor Outslee needs to sell the lie that the greening of the fields is leading to the drying of the river, and the drying of the river is causing the death of the fields, which he did by claiming, ironically, that farmers are being impacted by the drought when they are actually only being impacted by Outslee’s irrigation restrictions made possible by his drought declaration. (You can see for yourself that the river is co-existing just fine right alongside the verdant fields of environmentally responsible farmers that don’t need Outslee’s help: “Washington’s ‘Emergency Drought’ Pushes Rivers toward Flood Conditions.”)
That is right in step with what this other commentator writes:
… a CNN apparatchik admits that the next engineered crisis will be Climate Change™, which will be pushed at all costs by way of diktats from the top.
He also says,
Most of you have likely already noticed the [often not so] subtle changes creeping into all the weather channels and sites. Language is gradually being dialed up to drum up a tenor of fear and calamity in even the most innocuous of weather reports.
If you’ve been reading The Daily Doom for even just a couple of months, you’ll remember most likely how I’ve carried a lot of stories about truly hot weather but also noted all along the way how much the stories are being hyped, even by the National Weather Service and other major weather media, using things like the newly created “heat index” to pump already hot numbers like 105 degrees even higher to 115 degrees of “heat” so they can put bigger numbers in their clickbait headlines.
They treat their index as if it is the actual temperature, talking about how the latest situation broke “heat” records, by which they mean “heat index” records, knowing full well their heat index, unlike raw temperatures, has only been around a couple of years. So, it’s not a hard record to break … especially when they keep fine-tuning how it works!
Just tweak the dials a little next year (to refine the measure “for more accuracy,” of course), and use the new numbers in next year’s headlines that run hotter still. The tell is that they are doing that even in a year when raw temperatures have been off the charts, but off-the-charts is no longer hot enough.
I’ll go where the truth goes, even if it is the end of the world by fire, but I won’t go where the hype goes. So, yeah, I’m sounding climate alarms, but most of my alarms have been about how the media is manipulating the news to make it even worse. They are getting desperate because they have not sold the climate agenda they want to sell, so they are pushing harder. They see the current burst of heat as their opportunity, so they dived on it.
Now, it is not all conspiracy. It is also corporate sales. Some of these sites have advertising to sell, and who doesn’t like popularity? Hyping the news helps with both.
I remember the old days, where storms were merely storms, rain was rain, and high temperature was simply a muggy summer. Now the slightest inclement event is dressed up with scary graphics and scarier-yet modifiers. On weather dot com, for instance, the routine drizzle is now a ‘potential threat’ or alarmingly escalated to a ‘severe weather alert’.
Ah, the old days when Walter Cronkite’s news was allowed to simply be boring.
As with “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” or “Chicken Little” — stories that probably can no longer be counted on as common childhood literary culture, having been replaced by the important “Now I sing my LGBTQs” alphabet lyrics and “Bobbie’s Daddy Has a Baby that Is Neither Boy nor Girl” — these alarmist weather tales will eventually not be listened to when they need to be because the hype has to keep growing in order to be heard over all the other hype until it becomes a cacophony no one really pays attention to, other than as entertainment.
The lies will make real alarms harder to sound when they are necessary. So, I publish the stories of cataclysmic weather but actually try to DE-hype them with my commentary. They are bad enough without the hype and the questionable conclusions of cause. It would probably sell a lot better to use them to say the world is ending soon (and maybe it is), but I refuse to go beyond where the story will go without the hype.
The pernicious pox hoax and max vax hype
Even more destructive, in my opinion, is all the government downplaying of seriously dangerous truth because the government doesn’t want you to know. On that front, I have many stories today about government efforts to suppress the truth about the government’s own extreme Covid alarmism while also suppressing the truth about the government’s vaccine hype.
The government does this by claiming that truth is alarmist. It is alarming, but it probably should be. It, at least, should be given serious attention, and some key critics are now raising alarm about the coverups:
Senator Ron Johnson now comes right out and declares Covid was “pre-planned by an elite group of people.” That is what the conspiracy theorists were saying. Now, as with UFOs in congress, some members of congress are saying it.
This is very concerning about what has happened, what is happening and what continues to be planned for our loss of freedom.
— Senator Ron Johnson
Johnson points out that, just as is the case with climate change, there are very few people in congress even willing to look at what he has to say because they all pushed the vaccine, and they don’t want be made aware of the fact that the vaccines they pushed might have caused injuries and death. It’s inborn natural denial.
These members of congress are unlike Curry, who acted as a scientist should, Johnson says:
So many people just simply don’t want to admit they were wrong, and they are going to do everything they can to make sure that they are not proven wrong.
Johnson says we need more Americans to listen to the truth, to be exposed to the truth. That is why I compile The Daily Doom and write these essays, but I won’t pretend I have a clear lock on it. The truth is hard to sort out amid all the lies, even when truth is all you want. I am sure that in trying to filter out lies that are mere conspiracy hype — and there have always been plenty of those around — I sometimes filter out things that are true that merely sound like unsubstantiated conspiracies to me.
However, if those same claims start reaching a level of evidence that does substantiate them, I will certainly publish them. On the other hand, I probably sometimes publish stories that I think are true but that are just more fake news. There just isn’t time when aggregating the day’s news stories each morning to research them all before publishing them daily when you are a one-man operation, but I do the best I can to raise alarms that should be raised and to tamp down hype that is a false alarm.
I won’t pretend I am always right. The quest is truth, but zeroing in on it — among mainstream news that hides the truth it doesn’t like and conspiracy sites that may publish a lot of hype that is not, at least, substantiated enough to convince me — is hard when there is just so much misinformation flying around from all sides.
The truth sometimes even comes out from the least likely sources. For example, I would not normally think of the European Parliament — that vast unelected body that governs the European Union — to be a fountain of truth about Covid. Yet, in the news today, two Members of the European Parliament push back hard on the EU’s drastic Covid policies and on vaccine manufacturers.
The unelected Christine Anderson, a German MEP, actually claims the so-called "pandemic" was a beta test—conducted by unelected globalists—to see how easy it would be to seize totalitarian control, under the pretext of a global "emergency”:
"The goal, ultimately, is to transform our free and democratic societies into totalitarian societies. Their goal is to strip each and every one of us of our fundamental rights, of freedom, democracy, the rule of law. They want to get rid of all of this."
"In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite concerned about the well being of regular people, and it isn't any different now... For god's sake, stop complying. Start rebelling. They are out to get you if you do not resist."
OK. Didn’t see that coming from that particular space. I do not usually think of EU government as rejecting totalitarianism; however, this is an example of why I am as likely in my quest for truth to publish mainstream stories or quotes from the EU governing body as from anywhere else. Truth is wherever you find it. Recognizing truth when it is buried in so much trash, however, is not easy.
Another MEP, at this same congress, pointed out how the vaccines were far more dangerous than have been reported at levels larger than ever expected
… which suggests there are many more adverse affects than the official data show and with rates of serious harms and deaths never previously recorded for any vaccine.
Even a former vice president at Pfizer goes on the record in the stories I posted today, stating that the Covid pandemic was planned and coordinated in advance.
So, the truth is coming out, but the protection of the planners of pandemics continues. So does the press’s protection of itself. Those who strenuously and daily pushed the politically correct narratives are going to remain reluctant to publish stories about considerable vaccine harm. Far be it from CNN or others to admit their vaccine advocacy or their attacks on those who countered the accepted Covid narratives were WRONG.
In Canada, for example, the Supreme Court has just refused to hear the complaints of churches that were shut down during Covid quarantines. Ideas like free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly apparently do not apply in Canada any more than they did in the US during Covid. These are inconveniences that needed to shoved aside for the greater good to protect people from the vile Covid carriers who refused to mask up or social distance or get vaccinated.
Some forms of quarantine that temporarily go against those rights might be OK IF they really were necessary to save humanity from a serious pandemic. However, evidence is emerging that the vaccines were dangerous and that people had legitimate reasons to fear them and refuse them. Their right to question all of that should never have been questioned.
Other evidence is coming out that some totalitarian measures did not work, such as masking and social distancing that went so extreme as to shut down churches or that became so idiotic as to force people to wear a mask going into a restaurant but then allow them to sit and cough over everyone’s food at their table for an hour while they ate.
Shouldn’t people be seriously punished for stripping away people’s constitutional rights when it turns out their reasoning, even IF it was well-intentioned, was WRONG? If they are not punished, how seriously will anyone take those constitutional rights during the next apparent crisis that presents itself (or is concocted as the case may be)? How many more times in the future will those basic human rights even more easily be cast aside? I’d say, if you are going to, in an autocratic manner, strip people of basic human rights that society has historically enshrined in its highest laws, then you darn well better be right about the absolute necessity of doing so, and you sure better fear being wrong.
Good intentions (if they even are good intentions), don't cover for such wrongdoing. An example of misplaced good intentions can be found in another headline today about a somewhat famous Hawaiian actor who is asking everyone to stop visiting Maui so tourists don’t take precious resources away from helping those in need. You mean resources like JOBS? Take people who are in need, and shut down their jobs for a year! The actor flies high above the normal jobs sphere, so he is probably not thinking about how many people worked as waiters and waitresses in Lahaina now need, more than ever, waiting jobs in other Maui towns. They lost their jobs, and this guy is trying to make sure they cannot get another job anywhere on the island for well over a year, as he states it will take over a year to recover! So, stay away from Maui to help those who all need to find new jobs now that their old jobs burned to the ground.
Sure, it would make sense to ask people to stay out of the Lahaina area because congestion by a bunch of lookie-loos isn’t going to help. But actors are not the best equipped for solving crises with their bright ideas even when their intentions are good, as I suppose this actor’s intentions probably are.
Well-intentioned dragons can do a lot of harm with their own fires, so those who thought they were protecting humanity during Covid need to be held accountable in some serious manner for so easily and rampantly and completely and rapaciously stripping away basic human liberties to put in place ill-formed solutions. You should never be able to do that without fear of serious reprisal if you are wrong.
