The Farce is Strong in This One

Save a Life ... Surrender your Knife!

There is [...] a ban on people under 18 buying knives – going so far on the absurdity scale as to ban underage purchases of plastic knives! No joke. One woman in her 20s was even barred from buying spoons without proper ID:

There is no absurdity ... no end, to which Progs will go to control society.

More @ ZH.

From Moderate Malaysia

... comes the niqab for your bottom:

Maternity pants that ensure a woman’s ‘intimate parts’ are covered up during CHILDBIRTH go on sale in pharmacies in Malaysia to ‘protect women’s modesty’, By Jay Akbar, Daily Mail, June 26, 2015
Created by online store MamaPride which sells the product for around £20
The trousers cover the woman’s thighs, knees and ankles during childbirth
Small opening in the crotch has enough room for baby to make its way out
Claims some Malaysian women do not agree with men delivering their child

A Malaysian clothing company has created maternity pants which conceal a women’s ‘intimate parts’ during childbirth.

It would truly be a tragedy, if for some reason, a non-relative male doctor were to see said mother's ankles.

... the details from Geller.

Green Suicide Watch

Euro-greens are off the rails ... bound and determined to destroy Western civilization:

A Dutch court has ordered the government to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25% by 2020, in a case environmentalists hope will set a precedent for other countries.

Campaigners brought the case on behalf of almost 900 Dutch citizens.

They argued the government had a legal obligation to protect its citizens from the dangers of climate change.

Government lawyers did not immediately comment on the ruling at the court in The Hague.

Jasper Teulings from Greenpeace called it a "landmark case".

"It shifts the whole debate. Other cases are being brought in Belgium, the Philippines. This is the start of a wave of climate litigation."

But, don't worry, they'll be wishing for warmer days when the first European and North American crop failures hit ... starvation has a way of shattering smug value systems:

The past few decades have been characterized by a period of relatively high solar activity. However, the recent prolonged solar minimum and subsequent weak solar cycle 24 have led to suggestions that the grand solar maximum may be at an end. Using past variations of solar activity measured by cosmogenic isotope abundance changes, analogue forecasts for possible future solar output have been calculated. An 8% chance of a return to Maunder Minimum-like conditions within the next 40 years was estimated in 2010 (ref. 2). The decline in solar activity has continued, to the time of writing, and is faster than any other such decline in the 9,300 years covered by the cosmogenic isotope data1. If this recent rate of decline is added to the analysis, the 8% probability estimate is now raised to between 15 and 20%.

... and a bit more; something to do with the Thames freezing.

Some Catholic Sanity

... for a change:

One of the Roman Catholic Church’s most brilliant minds refuted many of the arguments presented in Pope Francis’ latest Encyclical, Laudato Si (Praise Be To You), contending “the purpose of the earth is not the keeping of the species going on and on down the ages.”

Rev. James V. Schall, S.J., a retired professor of political philosophy who wrote in October that “the purpose of Islam, with the often violent means it can and does use to accomplish it, is to extend its rule, in the name of Allah, to all the world,” now critiques the Holy Father’s letter on the environment.

[...]

hese range from the oceans, to the rivers, to the land, to the forests, to the insect and animal species. Even though many species of plants, insects, birds, and animals disappeared before man was on the planet, all present species seem to have a “right” to exist and continue in their current form. How this right relates to human purpose is the point of controversy.

[...]

“The question is: What does Pope Francis make of this spirit that pushes these ecological and political movements that seek to control the world?” writes Schall. “Such anti-Christian forces work to establish a world-state in complete control of nature, population, and economy. The Pope clearly is opposed to abortion, single-sex marriage, and such deviations. But many who seem closest to him certainly advocate these Lord of the World concepts. However we evaluate it, it seems worrisome.”

From the Man Who Stopped the Rise of the Oceans

... comes more comedy gold:

Speaking at an event held in a private home in San Francisco on Friday evening, President Barack Obama warned: "Well within our children’s lifetimes, on our current pace, the oceans go up maybe two, maybe three, maybe four feet."

Sure Barrack, and I've got a good moon property to sell you.

From the IPCC:




... that's 500mm max ... over a 100 year stretch ... which is about 19 inches according to the IPCC. But the genius in the White House has it at 4 feet. I guess that that halt in the rising of the oceans didn't work out too well.

And Sarah Palin is the stupid one?

The Farce is Strong in this One

You'd better get used to your flatbread:

Bread dough prepared with flour grown in a future climate with elevated atmospheric CO2 may not rise properly, claims Dr Fitzgerald, a senior Australian research scientist with the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources.

No Oil ... No Welfare State

The welfare state, which Progs feed off of, has come about because of one single factor ... FF:

Every human being on Earth requires energy to survive (see list on Figure 1). Be it a handful of rice for the poorest Bangladeshi or the excesses of suburban life in the West, everything we do requires energy and in 2014 86% of that energy came from FF and 11% from legacy hydro and nuclear plant. Only 3% came from alternative sources. Worryingly, in a step back towards 19th century squalor, much of that 3% came from felling and burning forests.
