Here in Texas, it appears that we will have a bang-up weekend. As I sit here at noon on Friday, the current temperature is 70F degrees or 21C. The sun is shining, and I have lots to do just in case we get another cold snap before Halloween.
You might wonder why I am focusing on the weather.
Not all that long ago, there was something called the Star Registry. This company would pick a star and give it your name or any name you choose for a fee. As proof, they would send you a pre-printed certificate with the star’s coordinates and, of course, your name.
While it might be the perfect gift for someone who has everything, it is possibly one of the largest scams around until now.
Climate change is one of the scare tactics that ‘scientists’ and other hucksters use to change the behavior of the masses. You will see protestors who could not tell you what CO2 stands for, spending their valuable energy protesting cheap energy to put in place that the globalist wants to control.
The simple facts are that there are wars, so the defense companies can sell better weapons. Yes, real people are killed, and lives are lost on both sides, but those that want the money from the sales or creation of weapons will push the need for such things.
We here in the states are told that certain world leaders are evil. They…you possibly are told that the American president is evil. The lies continue; if money is spent and the media has something to perpetuate hate, nothing will change.
Emotional tragedies sell air time. The game goes on, whether it is for a pillow or some drug that has you ask your doctor if death is right for you.
This latest scam to stop climate change is a device that extracts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and, through large equipment, shoves the gas deep into the earth, where it will never harm another soul. They want you to buy carbon credits as gifts for the person with everything.
The earth already handles CO2 handily by using it as food for plants, trees, and so on. In return, the plants emit something called O2 or oxygen. Huh… Don’t we need oxygen to breathe to live?
The protestors should be fighting the people who are destroying the rainforest or those who harvest timber to the point of leaving barren land to be washed away in the rain.
As far as electric cars are concerned, I think there is far more under the hood than they tell us. ‘Under the hood is a metaphor. I want to know how much pollution is created when making these batteries. I would also like to know where these raw materials come from. I would also like to know who is mining these materials. Now add to those facts this little nugget. When the batteries no longer work, what happens to them? Is there a company that is going to dig a large hole in the earth and put the inert material back in the soil?
Before you rush out and make Elon any richer, we should know what the life cycle is of those batteries.
The exciting thing about fossil fuel is that it is renewable. “What…TW, you are crazy.”
Well, no, not really; I am a writer and think creatively.
Fossil fuel is named because it was created by dead plants and other biological things like animals.
The CO2 that we emit today feeds the plants, which will eventually become fossil fuels. Time is the operative word.
We have the means to destroy all human life on this planet. We also have the nut jobs that think there can be winners and losers with nuclear bombs.
Using the variable time in the life equation, we already have ample evidence of what happens when nuclear material is mishandled. Chernobyl is 34 years after the accident, and we only have another 20,000 years to wait before the land is habitable again. That is twenty thousand years!
If any imbecile launches a nuke of any kind, it will take eons before that target area is safe to inhabit. Those bombs used in Japan were woefully inefficient. What is the cancer rate in Japan these days? Do we believe that the radiation only affected Japan?
If you could afford a Geiger counter that correctly identifies the types of radiation you are exposed to daily, you would find that radiation from Chernobyl, Fukashima, and other sources would be all around you, including your food.
That milk on your Wheaties contains radiation. How much radiation does it take to bastardize your DNA in cells to grow cancers that are malignant enough to end your life?
That’s where we are, folks.
I find it fascinating that doctors will order a CT scan as their first diagnostic test, which is equivalent to 50 chest x-rays, without looking for a less dangerous method to get the image they think they need.
We pollute our environment for money. Those that dumped tons of DDT in the Pacific Ocean by Catalina Island are not paying the price for their treachery. They were fined. They were fined less than the cost to properly dispose of the poison. The manufacturer that dumped the tons of DDT went out of business. This happened through the ’60s and ’70s. With no regard for humans and animals, they found a way to care for their little problem. DDT has a half-life of 35 to 65 years.
If Greta wanted to complain about something, that is one I would support. The real question is, what are other people doing with their toxic leftovers from manufacturing? I am more concerned about countries that don’t give a shit about what they allow into the environment.
Now we circle back to the batteries in these EVs.
Where are the defunct batteries going?
Recycling these batteries is the only real option, but the challenges are daunting. What toxins will be released in the process of recycling them? What toxins will be put into landfills?
What toxins are released, creating batteries?
Is it possible we are attempting to fix something that doesn’t require fixing? Are we inventing yet another star registry?
