These Climate Scientists Are Fed Up and Ready to Go on Strike

The world is being threatened with the horrors of a strike, a walkout, by "climate scientists", (link), excerpt below:
New York Times said:
It was this frustration that led Dr. Glavovic, 61, a professor at Massey University in New Zealand, and two colleagues to send a jolt recently through the normally cautious, rarefied world of environmental research. In an academic journal, they called on climate scientists to stage a mass walkout, to stop their research until nations take action on global warming.

Predictably, many researchers balked, calling the idea wrongheaded or worse — “a supernova of stupid,” as one put it on Twitter. But the article gets at questions that plenty of climate scientists have asked themselves lately: Is what we’re doing with our lives really making a difference?
These bleats by these climate novelists don't impress me. They come out with "fear porn", see Time Is Running Out to Avert a Harrowing Future, Climate Panel Warns,excerpts below:
New York Times said:
In northern Kenya, where drought has been ravaging crops and pastures, “people are still dying by the day,” said Fatuma Hussein, a program manager with Power Shift Africa, a think tank. “They are not even able to provide food for their animals or themselves.”

Some herders are moving their livestock to wetter regions, Ms. Hussein said. But vulnerable countries will not manage without support from rich nations, she said.

In Central America, climate adaptation measures that are effective today may no longer be feasible in the years ahead, said Debora Ley, an energy specialist based in Guatemala who contributed to the report. Between rising seas, droughts, and mudslides worsened by deforestation, Dr. Ley worries that some communities in the region may face collapse. “You can live somewhere, but if you’re prone to floods for six months out of 12 in a year, then can you really consider that habitable?” she said.
To my knowledge, Central America has always had horrible weather. See "Where Does the Word 'Hurricane' Come From?" (link) An excerpt: " The English word "hurricane" comes from the Taino (the indigenous people of the Caribbean and Florida) word "Huricán," who was the Carib Indian god of evil.Their Huricán was derived from the Mayan god of wind, storm, and fire, "Huracán." When the Spanish explorers passed through the Caribbean, they picked it up and it turned into "huracán," which remains the Spanish word for hurricane today. By the 16th century, the word was modified once again to our present-day "hurricane." An area that births the word "hurricane" is no meteorological paradise. As to fear porn, "had enough"?

That gives anti-left posts more credibility. You see, he's very liberal, so if he attacks something people think is on the left they have to believe him.

It's really clever. @JBG

No one noticed. We're so screwed. Or, at least, our children are.

Huh? Do you really follow my rather sparse posting history? I'm flattered.
Lol, don't kid yourself. All I have to do is click on your name. Takes 3 seconds to look at every thread you've ever started.

Surely you knew you couldn't get away with lying like that?

I mean, if embarrassing yourself publicly is your thing, then I guess you should go right on reciting RW/Trumpist bumper stickers and insisting people should believe you because you say your are very liberal.... anonymously on the internet.

It certainly didn't boost this joke of a denier thread.

The IPCC..........

"That will change immediately if global emission rights are distributed. If this happens, on a per capita basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there. This will have enormous implications for development policy. And it will raise the question if these countries can deal responsibly with so much money at all."

"But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole."

And then from this 'new' 'research'....

"Even so, the world’s poorest nations are more and more scuffling with local weather shocks and can possible require a whole lot of billions of {dollars} per 12 months in monetary help over the subsequent few a long time to shield themselves — help that wealthier nations have to this point been sluggish to present."

They have already admitted the quiet parts out loud...this is just a part of the agenda.

I'm not lying and I don't enjoy a personal attack. You don't know my views on most public issues. I happen to favor solving the problems of actual poor and working class people to addressing elite, hypothetical concerns such as "climate change." There are enough small businesses scraping by to survive and enough people living from paycheck to paycheck.

Also, many of the solutions have real problems of their own. See this: Hunt for the ‘Blood Diamond of Batteries’ Impedes Green Energy Push (link to title) and another thread on which you are probably going to accuse me of not being a liberal, Electric Cars Are Not Particularly Green - Blowing Up Mountain Not Environmental Virtue. The quoted article, The Lithium Gold Rush: Inside the Race to Power Electric Vehicles in the far from "denier" New York Times (link), points out that there is much environmental damage from manufacturing electirc automobiles. An excerpt from the article states:
New York Times said:
Atop a long-dormant volcano in northern Nevada, workers are preparing to start blasting and digging out a giant pit that will serve as the first new large-scale lithium mine in the United States in more than a decade — a new domestic supply of an essential ingredient in electric car batteries and renewable energy.
The mine, constructed on leased federal lands, could help address the near total reliance by the United States on foreign sources of lithium.
But the project, known as Lithium Americas, has drawn protests from members of a Native American tribe, ranchers and environmental groups because it is expected to use billions of gallons of precious ground water, potentially contaminating some of it for 300 years, while leaving behind a giant mound of waste.
“Blowing up a mountain isn’t green, no matter how much marketing spin people put on it,” said Max Wilbert, who has been living in a tent on the proposed mine site while two lawsuits seeking to block the project wend their way through federal courts.
I think everyone is so busy trying to look good, they're not thinking about what they are advocating.
