Maine’s Bangor High School says Hello Kitty Christmas tree can stay after all. Pagan rituals are again allowed in school! HAHAHAHA. Much of Xmas since the mid-1800’s is pagan practices. Before this, people who were Christian went to church and had various rituals that existed at least since King Henry VIII’s day or the Catholic and Orthodox rituals that are around 1,000 years old. So happy Yule to everyone and burn a log for the gods of winter, the Solstice is here. The sun will begin rising earlier and earlier in the morning.
What is particularly funny here is, in the southern hemisphere, today is the longest day in the year and it is summer. Antarctica’s ice is melting a little bit and the ice in the North Pole is growing rapidly. This winter is an el Nino winter which means half of the North American continent is having really warm weather such as where I live in New York. It is 60 degrees at 6am today! This is scaring the NY global warmists to death, they want super cold weather.
Meanwhile, Greenland May Seek UN Climate Deal Opt-Out Amid Emissions Goal as the people there realize, during Ice Ages, Greenland is like Antarctica. Nothing will grow there. Experts who understand Ice Ages know that the people who are really doomed are anyone in Canada. All Ice Ages begin at Hudson Bay. Alaska NEVER has glaciers except where there are ones in the mountains today. It is significantly ice-free and this is why global warmists should cease whining about Alaska, it is nearly exactly like Australia: the climate is roughly the same no matter how much temperatures swing from brief highs to long lows.
Our President has been pushing hard on this issue. Leftists have embraced it so hard, it hurts: Climate Deniers are More Dangerous Than Trump and More Deadly Than ISIS
So, global extinction? No worries. Death of not insignificant but still far smaller numbers of people due to a terrorist attack? Major. What color ties Trump prefers? Even more major.
Deaths from warmer weather have been nearly nil. Terrorist attacks have killed many people they are mainly in Muslim-ruled nations right now but it has insidiously spread as has other forms of human on human violence though it hasn’t reached the annihilator levels of say, WWII. Another Ice Age, on the other hand, will annihilate many humans except in Australia, South America and Africa. But in Eurasia and North America, it will be a vast killer.
All of civilization has grown during the warm era we are still in. ‘Dark Ages’ like the one the followed the destruction of the Minoan era empires or the fall of ancient Rome, happened because the climate got colder. Small variations towards colder climates leads to the fall of entire civilizations. This should concern everyone. Here is an interesting article about how ‘scientists’ have to be totally befuddled by this information as they struggle to understand repeated glaciations: NOVA | What Triggers Ice Ages?
Between 52 and 57 million years ago, the Earth was relatively warm. Tropical conditions actually extended all the way into the mid-latitudes (around northern Spain or the central United States for example), polar regions experienced temperate climates, and the difference in temperature between the equator and pole was much smaller than it is today. Indeed it was so warm that trees grew in both the Arctic and Antarctic, and alligators lived in Ellesmere Island at 78 degrees North.
But this warm period, called the Eocene, was followed by a long cooling trend.
We are still in the midst of the third major cooling period that began around 3 million years ago…
Plate collisions disrupt these carbon fluxes in a variety of ways, some tending to elevate and some tending to lower the atmospheric carbon dioxide level. It has been suggested that the Eocene, the early warm trend 55 million years ago, was caused by elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide and that a subsequent decrease in atmospheric carbon dioxide led to the cooling trend over the past 52 million years. One mechanism proposed as a cause of this decrease in carbon dioxide is that mountain uplift lead to enhanced weathering of silicate rocks, and thus removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
In addition, the collision of India and Asia led to the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas. While topography may not be enough to explain the cooling trends, another mechanism may account for changing climate. The uplift may have caused both an increase in the global rate of chemical erosion, as well as erode fresh minerals that are rapidly transported to lower elevations, which are warmer and moister and allow chemical weathering to happen more efficiently. Through these mechanisms, then, it has been hypothesized that the tectonically driven uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas is the prime cause of the post-Eocene cooling trend.
This is what irritates me the most: all these deliberations about the Ice Ages focuses on forces that are UNCHANGING. The Himalayan mountains have been rising for the last dozen million years as has the mountains in North and South America. This makes the history of Interglacials so obviously important: if it were getting only colder and colder, this may be a reason but it get suddenly much, much warmer for brief pulses of time! None of the ‘geological’ explanations tell us why this happens if it is earth plate movements.
Note in the graphs above that dust storms shoot upwards as the Ice Ages progress and then drops again when the Interglacials happen! Why are there vast dust storms during Ice Ages? Well, it is painfully obvious: there is less water on land. Huge unimaginable droughts happen. So the warmer regions like Alaska or Brazil will have lower rain amounts! Not to mention, Africa.
This takes us to an obvious thing: human evolution. We are the Naked Apes, after all, and the hammer and anvil that forged us and made our brains big and invented language and other skills was the horrors of sudden Interglacials and long Ice Ages and the dramatic effect these had on Africa. Humans lived on the edge of the rain forests and the wild swings in climate exposed us greatly. What worked during warm epochs was a disaster during Ice Ages which is why humans figured out pretty fast, how to kill animals with furry skins and wear these in lieu of natural fur.
There is no way humans could have lived on much of this planet even during Interglacials, stark naked. It is impossible except in, say, Brazil or Hawaii or other humid, warm places mostly on the equator and surrounded by oceans. I would even suggest that humans descended from near-naked apes 3 million years ago. We know that modern apes all have extensive fur. Our fur is mainly on our heads and at sex organs or in males, the chest oddly enough which is where most mammals have the least fur, most fur on animals are on the backs, we have virtually none there.
Enough with the naked apes at Xmas! UK Government attempting to keep details of secret security pact with Saudi Arabia hidden from public | UK Politics | News | The Independent
In March, a series of decrees promulgated by the Interior Ministry extended Saudi Arabia’s extended the definition of further to include “calling for atheist thought” and “contacting any groups or individuals opposed to the Kingdom”, as well as “seeking to disrupt national unity” by calling for protests.
Both Liberal Democrats and Labour have called for Mrs May to provide details of the deal to Parliament and expressed concern that such an agreement should be done behind closed doors without any public scrutiny.
“Deals with nations like Saudi Arabia should not be done in secret,” said the Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron.
“Parliament should be able to hold ministers to account. It is time to shine a light onto the shady corners of our relationship with Saudi Arabia.”
“It is time we stood up for civil liberties, human rights and not turn a blind eye because the House of Saud are our ‘allies’”.
And our rulers have secret deals, too as does Israel. So much for supporting civilizations that are humane and have the rule of law. No nation aside from maybe North Korea is as repressive and evil as Saudi Arabia. ISIS is molding its own self on the Saudi ideal.

And last of all, the Democrats continue to misunderstand how democracy works: Las Vegas GOP debate attracts 18million viewers leaving NFL and Adele in the dust while the DNC slug fest dies on its feet, put on at inconvenient times at the behest of Hillary’s pals and ignored mostly by the media and the public. This is a disaster for the DNC. People like to have choices. Not dictates! Support for Hillary is skin deep.
