What the chemtrails climate change deniers don’t get is I am not saying that this is not going on. I just refuse to look into to it all because these people are constantly trying to distract and take the discussion away from what is important.
Each and every one of them is a closet climate change denier (yes, denier, not “sceptic”)
If we are being sprayed to modify the climate clearly the whole thing is a huge failure as global temperatures reach new records.
The trolls and the falsifiers are on the attack
This demonstrates a la-Nina which is having little effect on global temperatures, especially ocean temperatures
Yesterday was a terrible day.
The day after hearing Guy McPherson speak in Wellington I badly needed a day of recovery way from the internet. Much of it was spent just sitting in a char.
Unfortunately, some of it was spent with a iPad in my hand so I wasn't exactly taking a real day off.
In my sensitised and grieving state I came across the following from someone who until yesterday was a Facebook "friend".
Mr. Ulsacker says:
"The biggest enemy of climate change truth are the climate change predictions by people with something to sell to you.
"The second biggest enemy of climate change truth are the proponents and followers who fail to hold fanatical predictions to account.
"Those two factors alone have been enough to completely wreck the entire movement for decades."
I am here to tell people that I will not tolerate libel and ad hominem attacks on my friend, Guy McPherson
This morning I woke to a private message which alerted me to the item below in which he tried to convince me that I had to look into chemtrails …
“In the interests of becoming more aware it is important to believe in the possibility of everything until you know otherwise... “
It seems by refusing to entertain the ideas of the chemtrails proponents I am a fascist?!
“Blocking certain discussion topics is ignorant and fascistic behaviour...exactly who are you serving?”
Interestingly soon after I reponded to a private message in which he pointed my attention to his well-reasoned piece (sic) the Facebook piece was removed.
Yesterday I was in a pretty brittle state so I responded with a few comments of my own on Facebook:
"I am in grief over the world, especially the natural world from what I know to be abrupt and catastrophic climate change.
"If I read so much as one word of libel attacking Guy Guy McPherson (as opposed to disagreeing with, or discussing technical aspects) like one person today I will react instantly by defriending.
"t does not matter in the slightest what positions they take on other subjects (such as Russia and geopolitics).
"One word even suggesting that theories about chemtrails" are science will elicit the same response.
" do not need "friends"like that."
"We live in such a crazy fucking world where some half-baked idea that someone dug up from the back of their mind is called fact and scientific data collected over a generation or more or logical thought is called an "opinion" or a "religion". Beam me up, Scotty. Get me out of here"
What irritates me most is that a generation of people have arisen that are a product of a dumbed down “education system” who are incapable of rational thought or of determining what is science and what is not.
Truly a “post-fact world”
By contrast I am old enough to have gone through a good, liberal education that taught me a few skills.
"I first heard about global warming back in 1988 and heard the message of Teddy Goldsmith, founder of the Ecologist who said back then more or less what Guy McPherson is saying now. No one sent him hate mail or death threats. He was just an eccentric old man making dire predicaments.
*This was the time when we were warned that we had a 10 year window of opportunity to do something.
"My grief began, not with hearing Prof. McPherson's message - although it has pushed it home - but with the Copenhagen COP15 meeting when it became obvious world leaders had no intention of doing anything but sit on their hands while suppressing those who tell the full truth.
"A generation later we have a dumbed-down population who wouldn't know a fact when they see one.
"The angry denial and insistance on turning reality on its head is, I believe, an emotional response of people incapable of rational thought to something that is very real, resembling a train bearing down on us.
"The further we go the more my patience is wearing thin.
" am looking at ways of withdrawing from the world of social media. If I had my health I'd have done it yesterday but I feel right now like a sitting target."
Getting back to Mr Ulsaker, it is difficult to determine when he says “those two factors alone have been enough to completely wreck the entire movement for decades” what movement he refers to.
Turns out from reading the thread that he means that Al Gore and Guy McPherson (somhow coflated) are the “falsifiers” and the “fanatics” and the “science’ is represented by Dane Wigington and the proponents of chemtrails/geoengineering theories.
Furthermore bullshit (and dare I use the term "false news story"?) below are regarded by this little group of deniers as "science".
By the way these people were upset at being called deniers - sorry, they are "sceptics"

And this is from the Washington Post - not my favoured source of information.
When considering changes in global temperature, it's always important to look at the big picture, rather than obsess over short-term effects
