The verdant landscapes of Iceland, through a new lens – The Washington Post headline says, talking about a bunch of pictures taken in Iceland showing nearly only ice, desolation and cold! I have noticed over the years, the warmists who are screaming about global warming, talk endlessly about how much they love the desolate tundra, worry that Antarctica might have a single plant grow and other hysteria coupled with propaganda that cold is beautiful even as these same clowns hold all their stupid meetings and anti-warm demonstrations in hot places like Cancun, one of the least icy places on earth that never had ice, ever, in the last 65 million years!
This insanity is so ferocious, the title of this photoessay uses the word Verdant – Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Origin of VERDANT
modification of Middle French verdoyant, from present participle of verdoyer to be green, from Old French verdoier,from verd, vert green, from Latin viridis, from virēre to be green
All the landscapes in this photo album are barren and leafless! All! Not one leaf is seen. Why would the Washington Post editors use this utterly ridiculously wrong word to describe a tundra-type cold landscape? Even during the Ice Ages, Siberia had more trees than Iceland! True, they were mainly stunted willows. But still, they were trees.
Curious to see if this mania, this propaganda to turn words like ‘verdant’ on its head to fool people into thinking that lovely landscapes are glaciers, I googled ‘Ice Landscapes are beautiful’. I got a ton of items talking about how beautiful ice is.
This mania for viewing icy, desolate places as ‘beautiful’ is amusing. Greenland’s Beautiful Icy Landscapes – My Modern Met is a typical example of this. Yes, ice can be beautiful just like deserts can be very beautiful. But both are also deadly places where humans would struggle to survive.
A Shifting Landscape: Images of Greenland’s Ice – Good Nature claims. Of course, the landscape has been mostly ice for at least 2 million years which I would suggest is ‘unchanging’ rather than shifting from one thing to another like the verdant temperate zone belt does between winter and summer.
Arctic landscape captured beautifully by photographer Peter Cox … and Finland’s ‘Ten Most Beautiful Landscapes’ — VisitFinland.com both celebrate severe cold. Funny that the Guardian, land of Global Warming is Evil, has this story from last year! Beautiful Antarctic landscapes belie a hard edge to life lived on the ice.
When I google ‘warm climate landscapes are beautiful’ I do not get the same stuff. Instead, I get Landscape Plans for Dry Climates | Home Guides | SF Gate or Texas Landscaping Ideas – Landscaping Network and Heat Tolerent Plants, Hot Weather Plants – Wayside Gardens.
There is a Balmy and beautiful: 10 places with gorgeous weather, all the time …but it stands alone on the search engine page. The only offering in this search engine page is this: The Natural Beauty of New Zealand | Immigration NZ which is trying to lure people to New Zealand.
Over the years, Google has become increasingly stupid. It worked ten times better back in 2000. Today, it is barely functional. Any list of entries quickly deteriorates to off topic suggestions. Often, in less than 5 entries. It used to be a great tool. Each year, it gets stinkier and stinkier.
The West Coast Google staff believe that we are all going to roast to death so I would suggest this inability to get any listings that verdant landscapes are beautiful is deliberate programming.
Now on to the California Drought which is over.
What will it take to end California’s drought? 11 trillion gallons of rain …was issued just six days ago. Oh, the poor babies! The drought continues! NOT! The Man-Made California Drought – House Committee on Natural Resources…is insane. Humans didn’t cause this drought which is identical to many previous droughts due to California being a severe desert to winter rainforest climates all in one long state that runs north to south.
Actually, the GOP in California are complaining that farmers aren’t getting enough irrigation. But the reality is, California has several million people and a rain rich/drought dry ping pong climate.
The #1 Google listing on my search ‘California drought ended’ is this: California drought not likely to end this winter, experts say – San Jose Mercury News from early last November! HAHAHA. It has poured since then. The ‘climate experts’ were, as usual, 100% wrong and this prediction of these stupid climate experts came after the rains already began! Boy, were they all pissed as hell that it was raining so they snarled, ‘It will NOT rain!!!!’
I bet they all did an ‘anti-rain’ dance with rattles and feathers.‘ Are we there yet?’: How much more rain will end drought? is yet another article whining about the rain. The ‘experts’ who couldn’t predict the weather much less, the climate, all whine that California will need lots and lots of rain and worse, that this is IMPOSSIBLE. So there!
Storms are all over the US today. Of course, the dry desert regions are not getting the same level of rain and snow as the VERDANT eastern half of the nation but this climate has existed for millions of years, except when it turns into Iceland during Ice Ages! Then it isn’t verdant at all.
Here is the 48 hour forecast for the US:
Oh my god! We are doomed! Look at the huge cold front sweeping off the Pacific Ocean, bringing heavy rain and snow to the West Coast! The horror! Oh! Wait! This is another COLD FRONT sweeping in!!! There is a brief warm front as a cold front sweeps into the verdant regions of the entire East Coast, too. I suppose the California climate experts will all be out in force, screaming, ‘Go away’ at the storms.
