☕️ OVERHEATED ☙ Friday, July 28, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS 🦠
Today, we debunk the climate narrative and you won’t believe what they haven’t been telling you, and a contentious House committee hearing on surgical mutilation of minors drives dems nuts.
Good morning, C&C, it’s Friday! This morning I take a crack at debunking the climate narrative and you won’t believe what they haven’t been telling us, and a contentious House committee hearing on surgical mutilation of minors drives dems nuts.
Note: the Childers family’s annual summer vacation continues this week and next, so posts may be shorter and later than usual. If it doesn’t show up on time, don’t panic! We’ll return to normally-scheduled programming week after next.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 Let’s talk about the new climate psyop. Sometimes I wonder whether the powers that be were encouraged by how well the covid psyop worked on a whole lot of people, some of whom are still wearing masks and whining that we aren’t. These unfortunate souls were so susceptible to the government’s psychological suggestions that they would be happier staying masked forever. They have found meaning and a complete life purpose in the CDC-supplied goal of mask Nirvana, a kind of salvation-by-works religious conviction.
Surely you’ve seen all the climate hysteria lately, and probably seen lots of counter argument. But there are some things they haven’t been telling us, that are in themselves complete explanations for any increased world temperatures we might be living through this summer. It’s not carbon dioxide, as crypto-marxist, faux protest group “Extinction Rebellion” wants you to think:
Ready to learn something? Let’s meet the historic, record-shattering Hunga Tonga volcanic eruption of 2022, which I bet you never heard of. Back in January 2022, you were probably distracted by covid mandates or maybe by Biden calling himself “Senator” again. The short version is an underwater Pacific Ocean volcano named Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai, 490 feet under the waves, massively erupted, bigger than any other modern eruption, even bigger than Mount Pinatubo.
You never heard about it since it was underwater and nobody died. But the erupting lava instantly vaporized fantastic, unimaginable amounts of sea water, which billowed into the atmosphere, changing the water composition of Earth’s atmosphere and heating it up for years. In only a few days, the superheated water from the Hunga Tonga eruption blanketed the globe, pole to pole, East to West.
The eruption was so big it could be clearly seen from space.
Here’s an August 2022 headline about the eruption, straight from the NASA website:
“Unprecedented” is accurate but doesn’t do it justice. Here’s how the rocket-slash-climate experts at NASA described Hunga Tonda as one of the most dramatic events in modern history:
When the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted on Jan. 15, it sent a tsunami racing around the world and set off a sonic boom that circled the globe twice. The underwater eruption in the South Pacific Ocean also blasted an enormous plume of water vapor into Earth’s stratosphere – enough to fill more than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. The sheer amount of water vapor could be enough to temporarily affect Earth’s global average temperature.
The not only injected ash into the stratosphere but also large amounts of water vapor, breaking all records for direct injection of water vapor, by a volcano or otherwise, in the satellite era. …The excess water vapor injected by the Tonga volcano … could remain in the stratosphere for several years. This extra water vapor could influence atmospheric chemistry, boosting certain chemical reactions that could temporarily worsen depletion of the ozone layer. It could also influence surface temperatures … since water vapor traps heat.
“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said Luis Millán, an atmospheric scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California.
Over the next year it would turn out that NASA badly underestimated the amount of water Hunga Tonga vaporized into the atmosphere. Current estimates are three times higher than the original: scientists now think it was closer to 150,000 metric tons, or 40 trillion gallons, of super-heated water instantly injected into the atmosphere. Talk about a greenhouse. Water vapor — humidity — is a much more effective greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
A new study published in April this year analyzed the 1-year aftereffects:
With a year’s hindsight, the 2023 researchers also concluded that Hunga Tonga was one of the most remarkable climate events in modern history, and its effects are expected to last for years:
[D]ue to extreme altitude reach of the eruption, volcanic plume circumnavigated the Earth in only one week and dispersed nearly pole-to-pole in three months. The observations provide evidence for an unprecedented increase in the global stratospheric water mass by 13% as compared to climatological levels. As there are no efficient sinks of water vapour in the stratosphere, this perturbation is expected to persist several years. The eruption has also led to a 5-fold increase in the stratospheric aerosol load, the highest in the last three decades yet factor of 6 smaller than the previous major eruption of Mt Pinatubo in 1991.
The unique nature and magnitude of the global stratospheric perturbation by the Hung eruption ranks it among the most remarkable climatic events in the modern observation era.
But I bet you never heard anything about Hunga Tonga, did you? Thanks, media. Better late than never, though. And if I’m doing my job right, you’re starting to think, hey, maybe the hot summer weather this year might have something to do with this historic volcanic eruption last year? If so, you aren’t the only one. Here’s another study, from April this year:
Say hello to the “global warming” plume most completely ignored by corporate media. These researchers were even more direct in connecting the “historic heat wave” to Hunga Tonga:
We find that the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai eruption produced the … largest perturbation of stratospheric water vapour observed in the satellite era. … fter two weeks, due to dilution, water vapour heating started to dominate the top-of-the-atmosphere radiative forcing, leading to a net warming of the climate system… This is the first time a warming effect on the climate system has been linked to volcanic eruptions, which usually produce a transient cooling.
The story made the science news, which makes it even more surprising that corporate media somehow found a way to successfully ignore the story. Here’s an EOS headline from March of this year:
See that? Hunga Tonga warming could last five more years. At this rate, the plume will likely outlive Joe Biden.
Corporate media isn’t ignoring the story because it lacks for dramatic graphs and charts. Here’s a chart I found showing how atmospheric water vapor increased recently compared to the prior twenty years. The atmosphere’s water concentration is off the chart:
See that? For the first time since tracking began, the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere is pegged out at the maximum, across the board.
Here’s why corporate media is ignoring the most dramatic climate even in modern history: because you can’t legislate underwater volcanoes. You can try, but they won’t listen. So what’s the fun in that? Corporate media only exists to further political ends. Since volcanoes aren’t subject to politics, why bother?
“Okay Jeff,” you say, “nice volcano theory, but does anything back it up?” Well, yes, I’m glad you asked. The Ethical Skeptic, who has done so much great work crunching covid mortality figures the last few years, recently turned his attention to the climate. He’s been noting another startling fact that you probably never heard of: for some reason, worldwide ocean surface temperatures have bafflingly jumped rapidly this year — much too fast for any cause to have been atmospheric.
First, although Antarctic ice has just very recently started melting quickly, and a lot, it is during a record cold winter in Antarctica right now, which is why you haven’t heard about it. The melting is pretty dramatic:
Ethical’s theory is that the oceans are heating up due to increased activity in the Earth’s molten core. Like the kind of activity that could cause giant underwater volcanoes to erupt. Various data support his theory. One study he often cites found dramatically increased water temperatures at abyssal depths — deep, deep underwater, where increased air temperatures have little or no effect.
In other words, Ethical is suggesting that the water is heating the air — instead of the other way around. And the Earth’s core is heating the water. It’s a theory that explains everything.
Meanwhile, “science” is baffled. From just a month ago, in mid-June:
See? But though scientists are baffled, corporate media and its repulsive allies are busily blaming ocean warming on carbon dioxide — a ludicrous notion. Here’s one example from Vice News (a promoted tweet!). In a clip showing ocean water bubbling around, attached to an article about rising Red Sea temperatures, Vice doesn’t quite claim carbon dioxide is heating the water, but it sure strongly implies it:
I’ve run these next headlines before, but they are worth repeating. The following 2023 stories all show scientists have lately been discovering deep-sea “hydrothermal vents” that are “hot enough to melt lead”:
That’s pretty hot. What causes boiling-hot, deep-ocean vents? Volcanic activity. Magma from the Earth’s core is heating up the water, which is venting out, raising ocean temperatures and putting even more water vapor into the atmosphere, which heats the air through greenhouse effects.
It has nothing to do with carbon dioxide.
Hysterical corporate media articles about global warming ignore all these facts. They ignore Hunga Tonga. They ignore rapidly melting Antarctic sea ice. They ignore abyssal water heating and related deep-sea data. They only want to show you the summer heat map and run clips of cantankerous teenage climate propagandist Great Thunberg whining that your SUV is literally killing everybody’s grandma and will eventually burn the Earth into a pile of hot ash.
Don’t you believe it. “Science” has only the barest notion of what heats and cools the Earth, and they even refuse to grapple with the evidence they do have. The climate has been changing ever since God created the World. It is the pinnacle of human hubris to believe that we know what the optimal global climate is, or to think we can somehow freeze that optimal climate into place without breaking everything else.
🔥 “Na, na, na, na, we can’t hear you…” Fox News ran an uplifting story earlier this week headlined, “Democrats storm out of congressional hearing on gender reassignment surgery.”
So you know it must have been good.
In a committee hearing discussing a bill limiting gender treatment for minors, Representative Kat Cammack (R-Fla.), who happens to be my Congresswoman, asked the Committee’s technical staff to play a short video of University of Oregon “expert” surgeon Dr. Blair Peters, while he was explaining how adolescent gender mutilation, I mean reassignment, surgeries work. That’s when the democrats freaked out.
Here’s part one, where Kat starts her five minutes, asks for the video, and then democrats immediately begin objecting and even calling for the hearing to be completely adjourned:
After a short recess so democrats could take a look at the video before Kat played it, the democrats renewed their various objections, including claiming they couldn’t hear Dr. Blair on the video, and called for a voice vote to stop it from coming into the record. When the chair found the committee had approved the video by voice vote, the democrats then called for a member-by-member roll call vote. When they lost that one, they walked out.
Here’s the second part of the clip. The video of Dr. Blair begins around 4:30, if you want to skip to that part.
In the clip, Dr. Blair explained how the University of Oregon was handling the bold new frontier of castration followed by creating a fake vagina for young boys whose genitals have not yet fully formed. Dr. Blair admitted they are basically making it up as they go along:
You know, we've maybe done a couple a handful of pubertally-suppressed adolescents as a field and no one's published on it yet. Um, OHSU is just putting our first series together as we're kind of learning and figuring out what works. But it's really changing things, because you don't have enough tissue to line the vaginal canal. So you either have to take a skin graft, or take skin from elsewhere, or use some artificial product.
The way that we're dealing with it is by using a robot, and we're basically performing intra-abdominal surgery. So we're using peritoneum, which is the inner lining of the abdomen, to line most of the vaginal canal, and by doing that it allows us to use all of the remaining tissue externally to create a vulva and try to make an aesthetic result.
Sounds great. Medical C&Cers: Could using part of your abdominal lining to create a fake vagina have any complications?
Now, you could maybe understand the democrats walking out if Representative Cammack played a clip of some neo-nazi, trans-hating domestic terrorist. You know, like part of a Moms for Liberty conference or something. But gauging by his speech, demeanor, and job, Dr. Blair is hardly a rock-ribbed conservative. If I had to guess, my bet would be the good doctor voted for a barely-conscious, gaffe-prone old man for president last time around.
In other words, Dr. Blair is a fellow liberal, an experienced gender surgery practitioner, and should have been a credible source for the democrat committee members. He’s literally pro-trans. But the democrats refused even to sit silently in committee while a liberal gender surgeon discussed the very surgery they were voting on. It’s not that they didn’t want to hear it, which would have been bad enough; they already watched the video during the recess.
The democrats stormed out of committee because they didn’t want to be in the room when the video was played. They were terrified that the trans lobby would say they “sat by” and let a real gender surgeon describe the horrifying procedure. Because, if there is one thing that democrats cannot tolerate, that one thing is facts.
