The current wildfires are already the deadliest in California history. Wildfires are normal in California, but their extent and the damage in this and previous years are unprecedented.
The MSM claims that the proximate causes are low humidity and strong winds. But these factors have always been there, and California successfully put down fires—even before firefighters were equipped with drones, satellite cameras, and the Internet.
Climate alarmism (rather than “climate change”) seems to be the real cause of out-of-control wildfires. The manifestations of climate alarmism include the following:
- Neglect of energy infrastructure. Falling or “slapping” power cables are considered to be the largest single cause of ignitions causing fires. The solution—burying cables underground in dangerous areas—is discussed but not implemented. The Democratic Californian government has other budget priorities, such as subsidizing solar power, electrical cars, and green billionaires.
- Sharp decline of government competence. The climate change agenda works as a negative filter, allowing the detection and elimination of honest and competent people in institutions controlled or influenced by the government. The remaining dishonest and incompetent individuals hire more of their kind, and so on. Together, they raise climate alarm higher and confuse the government even more. Among the most affected professionals are meteorologists. Meteorologists are expected to forecast weather conducive for wildfires, allowing firefighters to prepare and dispatch resources by time and location. Naturally, the failure to forecast and prepare delays response, allowing fires to grow out of control. General government incompetence also exacerbates the mismanagement of forests, water, and other natural resources.

Renowned physicist and mathematician Professor Freeman Dyson is a liberal. Nevertheless, he rejects climate alarmism and alleged “scientific consensus” that increase in the air CO2 concentration from burning fossil fuels and other human activities is harmful, or causes dangerous global warming. But he has found and published a solution to this non-problem about ten years ago. The solution is accumulating extra CO2 in the top soil. Those who considered increase of CO2 in the atmosphere to be a problem had plenty of time to discuss, test, and start implementing his proposal. See Edge.org, August 9, 2007 (9,800 words).

Examples of the fakestream media bluff on climate change, headlines:
Did Michael Gove really try to stop teaching climate change? (BBC, June 12, 2017)

Do you know that the Hammer of Witches has been peer reviewed?
In or around 1487, the theological faculty of the University of Cologne peer reviewed the Hammer of Witches (the quoted edition is Mackay, The Hammer of Witches: A Complete Translation of the Malleus Maleficarum. Cambridge University Press(1)): Continue reading Peer Review of “Weather Cooking”
This development is described completely differently in the different media:
The rebel alliance begins: Governors of New York, California, Washington form a coalition to fight climate change – according to FastCompany.
THE TREASONOUS SECESSION OF CLIMATE CONFEDERACY STATES . Prosecute Governor Brown for treason – according to FrontPageMag.
I find myself in the middle between these extremes. It is just another act of sedition by demonrats.
The media blackout of what looks like an act of climate terrorism, continues.
Following the ridiculous “March for Science,” at which third-rate performers and copywriters pretended to be scientists, unidentified shooters opened fire at the office of Dr. John Christy. Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer (who both work in the same building) are two of the prominent scientists who developed measurement methodology and have been maintaining the only truly global temperatures record — the satellite temperatures dataset.
Dr. Roy Spencer commented after the shooting:
“When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass.”
Ignored by the FSM, this news was reported by Breitbart, Daily Caller, Washington Times, and WUWT.
The so-called “climate science” is based on the output of extremely complex computer climate models that cannot be understood by humans. Even worse, these models are incorrect because they contradict well-known principles of mathematics and the information theory. Other important points:
- Computers are built around silicon chips.
- Silicon (in the form of silicon oxides) is the main component of ordinary stones and rocks.
- Silicon chip output is interpreted by so-called “climate scientists” as the prophecy of future climate changes for decades, hundreds, and thousands of years into the future. Prophesies that were made 20-30 years ago have already been shown false.
- “Climate scientists” form a closed cast that claims nobody else can understand their “science,” including famous physicists and mathematicians. Very few of these “climate scientists” have scientific achievements outside of the “climate science” or related environmentalist frauds. These “climate scientists” and their political/financial sponsors have persecuted dissenters and have used government power to do so.
- These “climate scientists” are not scientists or even ordinary frauds, but the priests and shamans of the climate cult.
“Climate science” is a cult and has been called so by distinguished scientists many times. This is not merely a metaphor. Continue reading Stop Establishing Climate Cult!
Yesterday, Bill Nye, a third sort actor playing a “Science Guy” on TV, while talking on the air to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, accused CNN meteorologist Chad Myers of being a “climate change denier”, and demanded action.
Nye: “And you know, here at CNN you have, essentially, a climate change denier meteorologist. Knock yourselves out, but this is a big problem and it’s not going to go away.”
Cuomo: “A bigger conversation for another day.”
Today, Chad Myers announced his conversion to Climate Cult!
When has the United States of America turned into Climatistan?
In 2012, the Government of California made the word DENIERS its official name for the opponents of Climatism, and has devoted a special page on its website to insulting us: https://www.opr.ca.gov/s_denier.php [permalink 1][permalink 2]. But the ALARMISTS got even non-controversial data wrong, and replaced it only when alerted by a “denier”. Obscurantist morons! Continue reading “Deniers” is now an official term in California
More fun with Google tools. This time I used the Google Trends Correlate feature to find out what the term climate scientists really means, because most of these so-called scientists are really frauds, charlatans, and impostors. Continue reading “Climate Scientists” as revealed by Google Correlate
What do alarmists not want to let the “deniers” do? Google does a good job indexing the Web and placing the most relevant and referenced results on top. In the spirit of science, I let the data guide me, and ran a Google search for “don’t let the deniers *“. Continue reading Alarmists Chant: “Don’t let the deniers…”
Science in the Public Square: Global Climate Alarmism and Historical Precedents, Richard Lindzen.
The central idea of the article is a vicious feedback loop: Scientists make meaningless or ambiguous statements => Advocates and media translate statements into alarmist declarations => Politicians respond to alarm by feeding scientists more money => [a larger number of scientists and pseudo-]Scientists make meaningless or ambiguous [or false] statements …
One precedent was “Lysenkoism”:
In the Soviet Union, Trofim Denisovich Lysenko (1898- 1976) promoted the Lamarckian view of the inheritance of acquired characteristics. Continue reading Richard Lindzen: Iron Triangle and Iron Rice Bowl, 2013
