Yesterday I was very interested to see Marc Morano appear for about 15 minutes on Alex Jones’ Infowars, starting at 1 hour 38 minutes into the show below. It was an interesting show featuring Ted Nugent, Tommy Robinson, as well as Marc Morano. Alex Jones is pulling in lots of interesting people.
My interest was piqued by the appearance of Marc Morano because he’s a prominent climate sceptic, with his own website, Climate Depot. And Alex Jones is a right wing talk show host who has evolved into a right wing video channel anchor. What was he doing there? Most climate sceptics talk to other climate sceptics, and argue with climate alarmists. It’s a whole different subject.
But then I’d forgotten that Marc Morano was one of the leading figures in the Swift Boat Veterans who did such a great job in sinking Al Gore’s presidential ambitions back in 2000 (or was it 2004?). At the time I wanted Al Gore to win, because I thought anyone would be better than George W Bush, so I was a bit distressed at the way Al Gore got shot up by the Swift Boats. How things change: I’d probably now think that anyone would have been better than Al Gore. (P.S. H/T Walt below, this is all wrong. It was John Kerry who got swift-boated, not Gore)
But Al Gore promptly re-invented himself as a climate guru, with An Inconvenient Truth (2006). And so my guess is that Marc Morano followed Al Gore into climate science, because where Al Gore went, Marc Morano would follow. Anything Al could do, Marc could do better.
And Marc Morano was on Infowars touting his new book The Politically Incorrect Guide To Climate Change (which I ordered after hearing what Marc Morano had to say to Alex Jones).
And what Marc Morano was saying was that the Gun Control people were using the same playbook as the Climate Control people, including the use of lots of chiiiildren. And when Morano started referring to “Climate Control”, and how Gun Control were using the same tactics they’d developed, I found myself vigorously shaking my head, and interjecting; “No. They’re both using the same tactics as Tobacco Control, developed decades before either of them!”
For we’re up against Gun Control, Climate Control, and Tobacco Control (except Gun Control seems to have completely disarmed us Britons already in ways that they now want to disarm Americans by repealing the 2nd Amendment). And here in the UK we’re also up against the EU, which might aptly be renamed EU Control or Euro Control, because it’s yet another central control outfit.
So Marc Morano could see that Gun Control and Climate Control were two peas in the same pod. Why couldn’t he see that both of them were in the same pod as the much older pea of Tobacco Control? And I happen to know that Marc Morano smokes cigars, because I saw him doing so during a documentary about him going to one of the Copenhagen climate conferences. So as a smoker, Morano must know exactly what’s happening to smokers. And he’s probably heard of Tobacco Control, He doesn’t have to rename it to bracket it together with the two other Control organisations and see that we’re up against Tobacco Climate Gun Control. Control, Control, Control. It’s always about Control.
It’s bothering me more and more that none of these people fighting Gun Control and Climate Control and EU Control never ever mention Tobacco Control. Why don’t they? Are they still as brainwashed about tobacco as everyone else? Maybe they are.
Anyway, Marc Morano said enough things of interest to me to go order his book. He also said that when he’d been in Britain he’d been surprised at the number of people who knew about Alex Jones and Infowars: “You’re a rock star in the UK, Alex!” (Or maybe it was someone else who said that.)
And right now I’m a lot more interested in Climate Change than I ever have been before, because two or three months back I had my first ever new idea about climate change when I came up with what I’m now starting to call the Dress Theory of Ice Ages, and it’s so simple that anyone should be able to understand it:
Dress Theory: When the Earth becomes dressed in ice, the ice acts as a layer of insulation, and the rock surface beneath the ice warms up. And when the rock has warmed up enough, it starts melting the ice above it. And when the insulating layer of ice has all melted off, the Earth’s surface rock, now undressed of its garment of ice, cools back down again. And when it’s cooled down enough, the ice returns. And the cycle repeats. It’s exactly the same as what happens when us humans get dressed because we’re too cold, and then get undressed because we’re too hot.
I’m still working on it, refining the code in the simulation model of it I’ve been constructing (but getting interrupted by the series of mini ice ages we’ve been experiencing in the UK, including the latest one right now).
And this very much relates to climate. Because as far as I can see, when the ice returns the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere drops, and it gets colder everywhere. And when the hot rocks beneath the ice finally melt off the ice, and come into direct contact with atmospheric air, they heat the atmosphere, and heat it pretty rapidly. So the end of an ice age, and the start of an interglacial period, sees a flip from a cold climate to a hot climate almost overnight in geological terms. And we’re now living in an interglacial period, about 12,000 years after most of the ice melted, and the Earth has been slowly cooling for 12,000 years, and the heat flow from inside the Earth has now dropped to just 65 Watts/m² at the Earth’s surface: next to nothing. We’re approaching the start of a new ice age, when the glaciers will start growing and spreading, and air temperatures will start to flip back from hot to cold.
So, the way I now see it, we shouldn’t be worried about Global Warming; we should be worried about Global Cooling. And we should encourage more Global Warming, by pumping lots more CO2 into the atmosphere, because it might help delay the onset of the next ice age.
