Thankfully the world can only handle one "crisis" at the time.

The other day we had politicians coming out in Norway saying we should not forget Covid-19 just because there is an election in the US :D

And obviously "climate change" is completely forgotten. People are now encouraged by politicians to buy and drive cars. It's all quite amazing. And still some actually believe that these structures are the right ones.... for every day that passes I think Eric Weinstein is more and more correct. The Portal is an amazing podcast by the way. And his recent visit to Lex Friedman's podcast is very good - for anyone wanting to get to know him a bit (only scratches the surface in that one, but got to start somewhere).

joe is gonna rejoin the paris agreement , and pledges big amounts of money for climate infacstruture and many jobs in green energy -its not a good idea- it is essential for a future , and don't kid yourself that it can be done later , yery unstable jet streams causing caotic weather patterns around the world are here to stay and will only amplify if we continue to emit carbon gas as we are presently

October 2020 was the 4th warmest October, tied with 2017, since adequate global data began in 1880. Global temperature was +0.90⁰C relative to 1951-1980 and +1.13⁰C relative to 1880-1920. The January-October 2020 mean of +1.03°C relative to 1951-1980 is nearly even with 2016 (+1.04°C). For practical purpose 2020 and 2016 are tied for warmest year. 2020 could pass 2016 in the next two months, because 2016 was stuck in La Nina mud. 2020 is in a deeper La Nina, but 2020 is buoyed by 4-year growth of greenhouse gases (and possibly by less aerosol cooling, if only we knew the aerosol forcing). ... er2020.pdf

Wait, what?

Why would the church of AGW admit to an unknown? Surety of faith IS required, and questioning SHALL be considered blasphemy.

And Simon. Unless you are the author of that link you provided, put that copied text in your post in quotes to make it look a bit less plagiarized.
