Climate Strike

What was accomplished? Seriously? It’s true that kids are not learning anything in the public schools. So letting the kids skip school to shriek and carry signs that the government needs to do something now to fix the environment. What’s wrong with the environment?

Our environment is the cleanest it has ever been. The world is greener. The largest polluters are China and India. So this rant about the climate is serving what purpose? Who is it helping? The short answer no one. This is nothing more that hysteria brought on by environmental activists whose goal is to increase a socialist agenda.

When Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent (AOC) made the claim that the world has only 12 years left before we destroy ourselves. Using what evidence? The fake news media picked up on AOC’s claim and flooded the news stream with this narrative. How is this science? I can make a claim that a diet of only chocolate cake provides you with all the daily nourishment your body needs. And then you get diabetes.

As I have asked before many times, which is more preferable? A warming world or a freezing world. In a freezing world, seasonally growing cycles would be smaller. There would be mass starvation. You would have to use more fossil fuels to heat homes and businesses. Solar and wind would be useless in a freezing environment.

In a warming environment, growing seasons would last longer. More food would be available. More time to enjoy the outdoors. As more plants and trees thrive, the more cleaner the air will be. I still believe solar and wind are larger polluters than fossil fuels. To create solar farms you must clear cut trees. The same with windmills. Plus the damage to birds and wildlife is profound. The amount of environmental damage green technology causes is alarming. People don’t realize how much fossil fuel energy needs to go into constructing solar and wind farms.

In Hawai’i, solar and wind farms eat up valuable farmland that could be used to reduce our dependence on shipping in food from the mainland. The cost of produce in Hawai’i is expensive because it has to be shipped in. Most environmentalist in Hawai’i are gardeners, they are not farmers. They don’t understand what farming and ranching is about. Environmentalists believe food comes from it’s natural habitat, a supermarket.

Now convince a bunch of ignorant kids that the planet is warming and the seas are rising because the polar ice caps are melting demonstrates a huge ignorance to science. It’s really sad because instead of learning the life skills needed to be successful in life, they are being fed a diet of science fiction. These kids will not listen to actual climate scientists, but they’ll listen to an autistic child testifying before a brain dead Congress and United Nations that the planet is burning. It’s madness.

It’s Aloha Friday, Again!

Happy Aloha Friday! One again I’m looking towards a relaxing weekend. The weather is overcast with occasional showers. There’s a storm to our south witch could bring heavy rains including thunderstorms. My dogs hate thunderstorms. What’s strange is they are perfectly okay with fireworks. Finally got my vehicle serviced. Oil change and tire rotation.

The results of all this rain makes for lots of waterfalls. Watching the waterfalls is lots of fun. However, tourists need to mind getting too close to the falls. Water coming from the higher elevations moves fast and it is very dangerous. Stay safe out there.

 

 

 

Fire Ants

Fire ants on Hawai’i island are a real nuisance. They are everywhere and they have a nasty sting. They are really tiny but deliver a big bite. The fire ants are an invasive species that no one really knows how they got to the Hawaiian islands. There are lots of theories but nothing has been proven. The fact that here are here means we have to somehow manage them.

When I lived in Guam the fire ants lived in the ground and produced mounds of red dirt. Here the fire ants live in the trees and they migrate in swarms from tree to tree. They use the trees as bridges to spread the colony. Here’s a video on the history of little fire ants in Hawai’i.

Little fire ants are a such a problem that they effect animals and live stock. My cats and dogs eyes are cloudy because of the fire ants. This was confirmed by a veterinarians’ examination. We had thought our animals were developing cataracts but that wasn’t the case. The fire ants get into homes. They’re usually found in the electrical outlets. I’m not sure what attracts them to the electrical outlets but you can see them squeezing from the outlet covers. Some homes are more infested than others.

Luckily there is a working solution to control the spread of the little fire ants. Bait and Barrier is a USDA solution to control the fire ant problem. The barrier is a granular compound that the ants eat and then soon die. They won’t cross the barrier after they figure out there is a poison waiting for them. The bait is a solution that combines a chemical that sterilizes the fire ants from reproducing. The ants eat the solution and carry it back to the colony and it prevents the queen from producing eggs. The solution is sprayed on trees and leaves. It contains corn oil and peanut butter which attracts the ants. A poison which sterilizes the ants is mixed into the liquid solution. It is very effective. We have reduced the fire ant population. It doesn’t eliminate the fire ant problem, it just controls the problem. The application must be regularly applied to effectively control the little fire ant problem. So far, so good.

 

 

 

Confess Your Climate Sins

The fake news channel NBC is asking Americans to confess their climate sins. Tell us: Where do you fall short in preventing climate change? This is seriously being asked by NBC and people are either trolling the channel or actually confessing what they believe are climate sins.

At first I thought this was a joke, but NBC is serious and NBC has a website dedicated to polling people’s sins on the climate. They even categorized climate sins. Here’s a snapshot.

So if you use plastic straws, eat meat, use air conditioners, use vehicles with fossil fuels, use toilet paper, and waste food, you are a sinner. People have actually confessed sins against the climate and I find some of the confessions hilarious. Is one category of climate sin a greater weight of sin? Are their venial and mortal climate sins? Is there a Ten Climate Commandments etched on a stone somewhere?

The lists go on and on, ad nauseam. This global warming hoax has actually become a real religion, complete with sins to confess. So where do you go for penance? What absolution is provided? Is there some high priest at NBC that will review your confessions and then provide some forgiveness?

This is inline with the democrat party hysteria that we only have 11 or 12 years left before the end of the planet. I guess NBC gets their scripture from their high priestess Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent (AOC). I suppose Mayor Pete Burrigieg is one of the high cardinals in the church of climate crisis. He’s always making biblical condemnations of Americans if they don’t adhere to his interpretation of his religious piety. The false prophets of climate change.

What worrisome is this influence on the weak-minded that actually believe this nonsense. Even worse how this false religion affects children. The left is already using children as propaganda pawns to push a socialist global warming crisis. Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist who is credited with raising global awareness of the risks posed by climate change, and with holding politicians to account for their lack of action on the climate crisis. However, this child is either autistic or suffers from Asperger syndrome. You can tell she’s parroting a narrative she’s been scripted to repeat. No one will challenge her because they’re afraid of the blacklisted by the left for being against a defenseless little girl.

The left is using children as spoke-persons for climate shaming. This is child abuse. Plain and simple. The left thrusts these kids into the media spotlight as untouchables to the goal of implanting a socialist scheme to impose government regulations to control your life. What you can eat, drive, work, life, what homes you can live in. It’s insidious and wrong on all levels.

 

 

 

Constitution Day

Today, September 17th, 2019 is Constitution Day. This is when we review the the supreme laws of the United States of America. The words “We The People” written in large bold text lets all Americans know the inclusiveness of the document.  The opening preamble

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

These words were meant for all citizens of the United States. The document defines the government and the three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. There is no other document like this in the world. Occasionally members of the elected government need to be reminded who the document was written for.

In 2011, during the regime of the Obama corruption, the Tea Party representatives elected to the House read passages of the Constitution to remind the democrats and then Obama that all legislation must cite the part of the Constitution that justifies its existence. Even today the democrats slur and distort the meaning of the Constitution. Every once in a while, these elected Representatives need a reminder who they work for and why they are there to represent, we the people.

Sometimes an entertainment show brings it all to television in a story from the stars. One such show was the classic “Star Trek” where Captain Kirk and crew visit a planet where a terrible war was waging for centuries by a people with extremely long lifespans. The Yangs and Congs were at war for so long they had forgotten their own history, even why they were at war. The war reduced their society to stone age level of technology. As a kid growing up in 1968 I remembered this episode vividly.

It was then I became aware of the Constitution and our system of government. At that time my Social Studies History classes taught the Constitution, the Magna Carta, and American history. We celebrated Columbus day, Independence day, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Sadly, many of these moments in American history are no longer taught in schools. Like a parallel universe.

 

 

 

The New York Slimes

The record of leftist fascism. This is the New York Times. The standard bearer of fake news. The democrat paper for criminals.

The amount of hatred and slander this rag produces isn’t suitable to wrap fish in or line a bird cage. It stinks of excrement. I really hope they go out of business, but they won’t because New York is a leftist haven of intolerance and ignorance. People that read this garbage live in a bubble that excludes any world view but their own ignorance.

The New York Slimes rubbish is a predator of truth and real journalism. After this fake story about Justice Kavanaugh was published, I knew it had to be a false accusation. I was proven right. I went on Twitter to search for comments regarding this story. As usual, the left was in full meltdown mode. They believed the story because the NY Slimes is the paper of record. The NY Slimes would not publish a false story. All the lefties called for impeachment of Justice Kavanaugh. It was another attempt by the left to falsely accuse an innocent man of a crime that never happened. Even the witness in the story said the incident never happened. Why lie to your readers New York Slimes?

President Trump was right in calling the fake news media the enemy of the people. They are enemies of truth and decency.

 

 

 

Daily Bread

Our Sunday starts with an early bright sunrise. It’s quiet and relaxing. Our weather is warm but trade breezes keep everything cool. The weather will start to change soon as we approach the end of the year.

The international space station (ISS) is scheduled to fly over Hawai’i at 8:50 PM this evening. I’m hoping the cloud cover will clear up for a good spotting. I’ve seen these passing’s many times before and even filmed it on clear evenings. Using my cellphone of course. I don’t have any sophisticated recording equipment. Still on some nights you can actually see the solar panels on the ISS. That’s always fascinating.

I don’t have anything scheduled this upcoming week so that will give me plenty of time to do yard work. I’m watching the global markets and the Stock Market. One of my favorite financial news shows is Mornings with Maria Bartiromo. It’s real news and with any news it does have opinion, but they make that clear during the broadcast. The DOW is expected to reach new record highs and that’s good for the economy.
