Who leans left, falls left. The Dirty 129

This is a summary of When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff, focusing on connections and parallels between the short lived “ban alarmism” and climate alarmism.  From January 28 through  February 8, a number of Silicon Valley and Washington state corporate executives participated in an attempt to topple President Trump, orchestrated by the Left after President Trump signed  the original order, Executive Order No. 13769 Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States on January 27.  WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson, one of the Attorneys General United for Clean Power, filed a stinky lawsuit against President Trump and succeeded to halt implementation of the Executive order.  129 corporations, who hold monopolies in Internet search, “social media,” TV and movie streaming, as well as other markets for speech and press, filed an Amici Brief supporting the rogue Attorney General against the President.  Their reaction to the Executive order was so out of proportion that an analogy with climate alarmism immediately sprung  to mind.  Here, I do not recite the original Executive order because I expect that readers did not trust to the Fake Stream Media reporting about it.

Some of the social dynamics behind this overreaction are described in the essay When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff.  This new low looks like a development of climate alarmism, compressed in time from 30 years to 10 days and happening on the scale of corporations instead of nations.  Like a small scale experiment with societal instability, one might say.   Continue reading Who leans left, falls left.

Tech Workers Protest Trump?

The fake news networks (FNN) widely reported a demonstration of about 150 alleged tech workers against President Trump in connection to the immigration order. The photos from the demonstration show massive presence of UNITE HERE! – an extremist union whose captive membership consists mostly of unqualified workers.

This collage attempts to capture the spirit of the demonstration. The original photo had the word ‘justice’ in place of ‘$15/hour’.

I appreciate the sacrifice of these tech workers (if there are any; see the fake scientists demonstration) for the sake of profits of their employers who advocate unrestricted immigration from low-wage countries that replace American tech workers.

Published in WUWT: Why Silicon Valley Embraced Climatism

14 Reasons why Silicon Valley embraced Climate Alarmism is published in WUWT.

Additional points:

  1. Silicon Valley consists from a large number of individuals with very similar professional backgrounds and a small pool of knowledge.  Communication in such groups tends to reinforce their preconceived notions.  Another place with this social phenomenon is Hollywood.
  2. The psychological types dominating these places might be totally opposite – egocentric actors and actresses in Hollywood vs introvert computer professionals in Silicon Valley (sorry for the stereotypes) – but their effect might be the same: discounting opinions of outsiders, even on subjects in which those outsiders have interest, knowledge, and experience.
  3. Privileged (in comparison with the manufacturing, energy, and other basic industries) political status of the software industry, also similar to that of Hollywood.
  4. Recent influx of “content creators” with hard left views.

Banned from Reddit for three days

It is getting more weird on Reddit.  I have been banned after re-posting the link to my article, pointing to the math errors in IPCC climate models and to the failure by so-called “climate modelling community” to develop specialized chips that would have allowed it to produce its garbage predictions thousands times faster: Continue reading Banned from Reddit for three days

Google: hard-Left search engine?

There is an interesting comment on my WUWT article from somebody with insider’s knowledge of Google Search backroom operations. This is a direct quote that cements the need for a skeptical search):

There are countless other reports of manipulation of conservative sites and blogs. With Google’s longstanding policy of favoring inbound links from .edu and .gov blogs, they’ve effectively created their own hard-Left political search engine.
