There isn’t a blue state and city (along with many red ones) that doesn’t have a “climate mitigation plan” or something similar in place to ward off the imaginary crisis that has generated billions in wealth for ESG capital and for politically connected figures like Al Gore.
California has taken the lead in basing disaster responses on the myth that snow and cold temperatures were going away and that the future would be defined by “climate change” and warming temperatures.
Like most blue enclaves, California didn’t plan for real-world climate variations. Now people are dead.
A dozen deaths have been reported in mountain towns, many of them elderly people cut off by the snow, under a political system that had decided to pretend that snow was a relic of the distant past.
Snow was supposed to disappear. Climate mitigation strategies often acted like it didn’t exist or as if the defining climate situation would involve less and less of it, not more and more.
There have also been many other storm deaths.
Preparations were not made. And that’s not just a California issue. Disaster response and climate risk management has entirely come to mean relying on an environmentalist narrative that blames the weather on human industrial activity and presumes that the weather will follow its political guidelines.
What happens when it doesn’t? People die.
Environmentalists lied, Californians died.
Environmentalists didn’t lie. Nobody said snow is going away. Nobody ignored “real-world climate variations.” The planet is warming up. The data is plain and easily available. Stop lying.
Certainly state and local governments, in blue and red states, should do more to prepare for weather variation and extraordinary events. Certainly those preparations would save lives and property. This means state and local budgets should increase. It means more public spending, higher taxes, more stringent regulations. I am glad you’ve seen reason and agree this is the right way to go.
Moron Mickorn makes it easy again.
“A ‘no snow’ California could come sooner than you think” LA SLimes Dec 3, 2021.
Lots of such examples, liar.
We managed to “prepare for weather variation, for over a century, without more spending, taxes, or regulations, before we started wasting money on “climate mitigation plan(s).” We all “see reason and agree” mickorn’s a lying moron.

Moosehorn has to have his say 🙂
Yep, I believe in allowing leftists to make fools of themselves, as well as demonstrate their bigotry and antisemitism when they show us what they really think. Sticks and stones and all that..

“The data is plain and easily available.”
World Metereological Organization. You know, the people who actually know?
Check out their website. Maybe you’ll learn something.
Mo de Profit says
The World Meteorological Organisation? Is that the one that funds geo engineering projects? The likely cause of the current storms?
GISS NASA are one of the four main data bases for world temps. Here’s an example of how they adjust those temps to fit the meme of AGW. Check the light yellow ‘raw temp’ graph in the background.
Here’s the graph of the original data pre-2010 before they started ‘homogenising’.
And these are the people who actually know?
Somewhere in his head, but he doesn’t even know where to start to look for it, there is so little in there it shouldn’t be hard for him to find it.
So, higher taxes will fix the climate? Who knew?
Hmmmm. Can any of these climate scientists tell us peons what dollar figure buys a degree of global cooling? They should have this calculation at-the-ready when they propose turning the earth upside down and killing off a big portion of humanity.
I read a book written by an Ausi geology professor, Plimpton I believe. He floated the not un-realistic theory based on how slowly geology moves, his thought was the Earth is still emerging from the last ice-age and this slow warming is the continuation of this trend. He also says: So? Who determined the ‘correct’ temperature of earth, anyway? Who could make such assertions.
based on what proof? Maybe 10C higher the optimum temperature for Earth, but because we have been on this rock such a very short time in geological references, how would anyone know?
There has been no change in global temp in the past 8 years. As best as can be determined, earth has warmed 1.3 degrees in the past 100 years though measurements are questionable. Hardly a crisis. Temp changes have far more to do with sunspots and realignment of the poles than to Co2. There is no proof that CO2 has any effect o9n weather. The whole thing is a scam which foolish sheep, led by nefarious shepherds are taking all of civilization over a cliff. Environmentalists are greedy liars and the kickbacks to politicians including Biden are encouraging evil.
Greedy? How much money has Al Gore made off this scam? And the U.N.?
Craig Austin says
Climate stasis s a complete myth, change is constant. There is absolutely no evidence of a static climate on a global scale over an appropriate timescale.

The climate change hoax and hysteria is similar to several fringe Christian preachers who were exclaiming for everyone to be prepared for the rapture in Sept of 1988. The righteous would simply be lifted into Heaven, while the rest damned to hell. That morning everyone woke up and went about their business with no such rapture. Only God knows such things.
This lead to AL Gore, who’s made millions of the climate hoax. Gore said in a mere 10 years we would be at a “point of no return.” We wouldn’t be able to recognize Manhattan as it would be gobbled up by the seas. Drastic measure had to take place such as giving AL Gore your money in order to stop the world from this imminent catastrophe. To no one’s surprise that prediction came and passed, as Manhattan is still here.
It’s been well over 50 yrs since the first Earth Day and every dire prediction from the “experts”, “politicians” and Leftist “scientist’s” have never come to fruition.
And yet, the climate scam artist’s are still going at it.
It’s no accident that Earth Day, is on V. Lenin’s birthday.
And earth day guy chopped up his girlfriend and hid her, i think, in a closet. .
Thank you. I was going to mention that careful coordination between the two dates.
If Al Gore is lucky he doesn’t live in Medieval Europe. This sort of weather hoax might foster a torch and pitchfork party.

There is some excellent heavy snow removal equipment being manufactured these days. If there was some leadership some good snow removal equipment could have been brought in.
Yes, but then there would be less money for the lefty politicians to spend on themselves and their donors.
There is a change to the planets climate coming, but there isn’t enough money on the planet to cause it to go away.
Mark Luhman says
The question always remain how much and which way. No one has that answer. One thing we do know the tropics won’t change much at all. The tropics have not change plus or minus 1 c in the last 24 million years. CO2 across the world have varied wildly in that time.
The climate always changes. We’re lucky to be living during a warmer period; often it changes for the colder and that’s pretty terrible.
Spurwing Plover says
Up here in Etna Ca In Scott Valley in Siskiyou County right on the Oregon Border we have snow it snowed last week and it was two years a go the L.A. Times claimed it would never snow again and they got show on L.A. and Hollywood. frankly that liberal rag should apologize to their readers and subscribers for its Lies
Well, at least the GOVERNOR was able to ESCAPE!!!
Isn’t it funny how everything leftists say saves people culls them. Maybe there’s some sort of connection…

In the 50s, in Miami, we used to stomp on the ice atop all the puddles while walking to the school bus stop. Sr441 was being built, we also started small fires of scrap wood to keep warm until the bus came. Going home we were in the shirts. Carrying our jackets under our arms.
