I wish this Climate Hysteria would “bust-out” like you did‼️ (actually all-in with KQ was a good play😏)

What happens when everything turns electric and there's a power failure with a hurricane approaching? No way to escape (car isn't charged). No way to hunker down - everything in the house is powered by electric. Has no one thought of this?

As an electrical engineer, I also get a headache when they claim ditching nuclear, natural gas, and oil (baseload power generators) for wind and solar (intermittent power generators) is the way forward. It is simply not possible with the levels of baseload power needed to run our cities.

The alternative? No heat and no air conditioning at the complete mercy of mother nature. Alex Epstein said it best when he explained fossil fuels have allowed humans to achieve "climate mastery". Exponentially fewer deaths for a supposed slight increase in global temps would be an okay tradeoff for most people.

Want to or not, you are probably going to have to keep writing about this topic - only because it is THE "existential issue" that will be used to control every single person on the planet for the rest of our lives.

I mean, respiratory viruses (and the mRNA vaccines to defeat them) will of course still be used as a tool, but "Climate Change" is the biggest hammer in our rulers' tool box.

You're looking at it from the wrong perspective. Anthropogenic climate change is another "wedge" issue that the left uses to manipulate society. The computer models ARE wrong. The data is manipulated, just like COVID data was manipulated. Look at it from an historical perspective: weather data is only 100 or so years old and the climate on planet earth has been changing for billions of years.

I’m not a man made climate change believer but read Alex Epstein’s book Fossil Future and you’ll quickly realize the way we survive climate events is by using energy and really the only energy that allows prosperity are fossil fuels. So if we want mass destruction, devastation and suffering we can give into the climate alarmists and destroy our fossil fuel production before we have a legitimate alternative. Or we choose life and continue to use fossil fuels.

Who in the northeast was measuring rain 1000 years ago?

The lack of critical thinking skills drives this hysteria. I blame our educational system and the introduction of “experts” for just about everything. Question everything including the data and how it is presented. Then draw your own conclusions. Seems simple enough.

Alex -- thank you so much for posting this! You are spot on, as usual. I have been following Bjorn Lomborg for years now and he is the real 'voice of reason' in the climate change debate (or is there a debate?). I highly recommend his book: "False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet." Again, thanks for being a voice of reason on yet another topic.

Nicely said, Alex.

Man made climate change is a scam.

Lets take care of the planet, but not to the detriment of everyone on the planet.

This is just the climate version of the covid portion of the control crisis. Always the scariest numbers, always blaming you for them.

Well said as usual. Yeah, I have fantastical conversations with my 'Chicken Little' friends. Its like speaking with 6 year olds who think the 'store closing in 15 minutes' announcement will lock them in for the night if they don't run out immediately. My 6 year old actually thought that and it was funny...coming from a 6 year old.

Thanks for crying “help!” for us all. I read Shellenberg, Koonan, Lomborg and others. I’m very tired of the hype and irrational scare tactics. NO ONE screeching out there seems to be able to impartially look at the science behind all aspects of this. Their data juggling and skewing leaves me incensed.

But the Environment, in general, seems to be ignored. Where is the clamoring for clean water? For invasive species? Effective forest management? Recycling in the time of mercury containing lightbulbs and dangerous electric car batteries and solar panels? How about the wind turbine burial grounds for blades and turbines?? ( not to mention dead Eagle). The WSJ had an in depth piece about the communication industry and it’s abandoned lead cables all over the country-in the water mostly- poisoning us. I’m sure Build Back Better has no interest in this! They’d rather subsidize the electric car I don’t want ( with MY tax dollars).

Our government and the elite “thinkers” would rather we “redecorate the house” with exotic new stuff, while the foundation crumbles and the roof leaks.

Go to the Rush Limbaugh archives and find the episodes where he is talking about this subject. He was spot on.

I'm so glad that you addressed this that I became a paid subscriber today! I'm so sick of this "weather porn" that's causing all the talking heads to hyperventilate. I've lived in Texas for nearly 60 years and seen all kinds of weather. Until it freezes in July, you can't convince me that we're that out of whack. Unless that happens, my winter coat will stay in the closet for 3-4 more months.

Just like Covid-19, climate change is a grift to money-launder taxpayer funds and gain more power and control over the every man and woman. That’s it.
