Rising Scepticism about Global Warming

I’m always pleased to see new people coming on sceptical about Global Warming. Donald Trump doesn’t believe in it (and neither to several other Republican presidential candidates). And now Vladimir Putin has joined in:

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes global warming is a “fraud” — a plot to keep Russia from using its vast oil and natural gas reserves.

Putin believes “there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries, including Russia,” Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and Putin critic, told The New York Times.

And a society of French mathematicians:

As the United Nations gears up for its next international conference on climate change in Paris next month (COP 21), a scathing white paper released by a society of French mathematicians calls its fight against global warming “absurd” and “a costly and pointless crusade”.

“You would probably have to go quite a long way back in human…history to find [such a] mad obsession,” according to a translated summary of the document released in September by the Paris-based Société de Calcul Mathématique SA.

Christopher Booker explains why the upcoming Paris conference will be a flop. Among other things:

China, now easily the world’s largest emitter, contributing 24 per cent of the total, plans by 2030 to double its CO2 emissions, not least by building 363 more coal-fired power stations. India, now the third-largest emitter, plans by 2030 to treble its emissions. The fourth-largest emitter, Russia, despite slashing its emissions after 1990 by closing down much of its old Soviet industry, now proposes to increase them from their 2012 level by up to 38 per cent.

I hope he’s right. Christopher Monckton was saying recently that they had the whole thing sewn up to create a world government.

In other news, the radicals are fighting each other:

Germaine Greer has spent a lifetime courting controversy in her relentless and often provocative battle to advance women’s rights but now it is the high priestess of feminism herself who has been accused of betraying women.

Greer said she was pulling out of giving a lecture at Cardiff University after female students there branded her ‘transphobic’, and lobbied for her to be banned.

What had the 76-year-old professor done to warrant this fury?

She had once expressed the opinion that even if a man had himself castrated, he would not look, sound or behave like a woman. She also said that ‘a great many women’ think ‘male to female transgender people’ do not ‘look like, sound like or behave like women’.

And for once I agree with her.

    Analysis by Judith Curry on why Climate mitigation simply doesn’t work at all.
    Unless your one of the unscrupulous “grabbers” who invest in and promote it.
    Every body else pays more of course.

    It is irritating that everything is lumped under the term “transgender”.

    It used to be that top of the pile was a true blue hermaphrodite. That is a person with the reproductive organs of both sexes. Extremely rare, but they do exist.

    Then there’s the far more common “pseudo” male or female hermaphrodite.

    All these are perfectly natural. The children were born that way.

    Then there’s your standard issue cross dresser that we’ve had since we started wearing clothing that’s gender specific.

    And now we have a plethora of guys and girls who have operations to remove the bits they don’t want, then follow up with massive dosages of hormones to make the physical changes.

    They’re really just sex changers’ and that shifted to “transexual”. I wholly agree with Greer that irrespective of what they appear to be, they are still men or women.

    Caught up in all this are the real intersexed people, the ones we used to know as hermaphrodites – and Longrider claims to be one. In fact he penned a piece on this a few days back, though he refers to himself as transgender:

    http://www.longrider.co.uk/blog/2015/10/24/the-monster-is-eating-its-own-tail/

    However there’s no absolute specific with real intersexed people; there’s a table listing the most common medical conditions (the stats came from the USA):

    Not XX and not XY: One in 1,666 births
    Klinefelter (XXY): One in 1,000 births
    Androgen insensitivity syndrome: One in 13,000 births
    Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome: One in 130,000 births
    Total number of people whose bodies differ from standard male or female: One in 100 births
    Total number of people receiving surgery to “normalize” genital appearance: One or two in 1,000 births.

    And it’s Klinefelter that we see most frequently. It’s with these people we see most of the problems. They’re all considered male at chromosome level and a good many parents do their best to raise them as such. Some don’t, simply because they have a vagina – and in fairness those parents may well be correct. Raised as a girl, they’re sterile but can and do become extraordinarily good wives and (adoptive) mothers.

    Here’s a reasoned post from a serious blog on the issue of “pseudo” female hermaphrodites:

    http://sites.psu.edu/245spring2015/2015/02/25/intersexion/

    However the web and most notably tumblr has provided a platform for the many kids with Klinefelter and they are extremely open as well as pornographic in nature (so I leave it to Frank to decide whether to leave these links live):

    This lad’s had his boobs removed and has had a hysterectomy. He’s taking testosterone to make a mountain out of a molehill. He’s American:

    http://myjourneytoselfove.tumblr.com/

    Then there’s a Canadian chap who doesn’t much care for operations, so he’s got the whole lot and he’s quite happy to let it all hang out:

    As you can see there is a very big problem being a young man with thudding great breasts, a vagina, a male skeleton, a scraggly beard and a weight issue.

    So with respect to Ms. Greer and even her critics, they really need to know what they’re actually talking about. And neither of them has been given the right to speak for trans people, any more than Arnott has for non-smokers.

      Sscot In Singapore if I remember right these kinds of people would prostitute themselves for years to earn enuf money to be made a whole person via an operation. Rather than using the issue for political pandering and sickening the rest of society goverments might just open up a few surgery units to make em what thye want to be rather than the massive genetic fluke they became.

      I will say that’s the most disgusting picture Ive ever seen,but I can understand your use of it to get the point across your trying to make.

      • smokingscot says:

        In truth it wasn’t my intention to have the photo come up as it has. I thought it’d just be a standard link.

        No the young chap in the photo is NOT someone who has been surgically altered. He was born thus.

        As it’s generally accepted it’s caused by a hormone imbalance in the womb the condition is becoming increasingly common, partly because the female hormone oestrogen was once used as a way to get chickens to grow faster (and still is in some parts of the world) and possibly with the widespread use of “the pill” that can get into the water supply via septic tanks.

    “She had once expressed the opinion that even if a man had himself castrated,.. ”

    Which, it appears, Jenner has yet to have done. Nor is it clear that s/h/it will.
