How slow and stupid we are …

I read Sam Carana and anything from Guy McPherson; he has a critical enquiring mind, one of the youngest Professors ever appointed in the USA.

The slowness,  blindness and inaccuracy of the IPCC is astounding. I think I’m correct in saying didn’t include subsea methane release in their most recent ‘modelling’ (highly inaccurate anyway) and ignored melting Arctic ice. Lewis Carrol could have written the script. Levels that are in the short term are the levels that will destroy us, say x130 for methane; theres no medium or long term worth considering, we’ll not be here.

Anyways, 2C will come and go v quickly, better start thinking 3C plus, which of course means human life is teetering and gone.  Think about it, feedback loops of enormous world encompassing comprehensivity, nature in the raw so to speak, grain production areas disabled, theres nowhere else it can be done, corporations had better get ‘superfood’ substitutes developed v quickly. Thank God I don’t live in a large centre of population, water distribution / delivery / pumping and sewage disposal will become so critical.  And so on and so on …

So many pundits / governments / media voices seem to wish to project a false prediction that somehow or other 2 degrees C of warming will leave us all at a levelling off, when in fact the whole system of nature is now a frightening series of triggers and feedback loops revving up to go faster.

  • ice loss
  • jet stream
  • weather patterns
  • sea level rise
  • methane
  • green growing things ‘go in reverse’ for CO2 conversion
  • algae / diatom crash the oceans die (witness diatom / bryozoan symbiosis ie coral reef.
  • grain production
  • insects (pollinators) gone
  • aluminium levels
  • drinking water
  • power stations are nearly all coastal
  • etc

Bill Maher at his best …

I was going to use the title ‘What would a dick do … ” but maybe google frowns on such direct address … instead we can read the title Bill Maher at his best and hear how the Republicans or more accurately the twisted self interest of over-wealthy benefactors can turn the ear of what should be a democratic process; wow America is hijacked !!!

btw … money DOES corrupt.

trump; traitor, progenitor of evil, cretin.

… oops sorry to offend any cretin. But its true, trumps many chaos, many denials are near beyond number.

Yes you had porn stars and paid them off even though dollar bills were never requested, never required.

Yes you ring hapless contractors and offer them cents on the dollar.

Yes. you steam roller through to bypass any semblance of paying a tax bill or accurate and honest accounting.

trump is quite hapless, the kid that never did homework, sailed along on ‘front’ and brazen disregard.

My particular axe to grind tonight is his breathtakingly pathetic performance at G20 re climate change. 

As usual a few ignorant and off target remarks and trump thinks, fools himself he ‘has it in the can’. Here in the north east of England we would call him ‘donnard’. It means stupid, dim, irrelevant, thick, of catastrophic bad performance; pretty well sums up the whole White House pantomime and its sick tired entourage. His baseless tissue thin platitudes surely can not still fool anyone?

Heres a useful succinct resume as what we are up against with the idiocy of trump; remember, his only qualification is a reality tv show of low merit.

Donald Trump Said Really Stupid Things About Climate Today. Here Are 8 Facts He Ignored.

 

trump and his many pronged attack on decency and intelligence
trump and his many pronged attack on good sense, established values and decency …

 

postscript; I am most certainly critical because the nonsense we see and hear and the divisive low brow garbage Presidency of donald j trump can not be allowed to develop into mainstream and accepted as ‘normal’. It is not normal in any shape or form to wreck, sow fear and anxiety, to deride ordinary people, to alter and manipulate impressions, views, free speech ie his achingly tiresome attack of the Free Press.

The man is useless. The photo-op (as with KJU NK) is quite shallow and basically pointless, but KJU loves all of this, propelled from hardly of importance to worldwide coverage.  trump feeds the world his photo-op lead story nonsense knowing fine well theres endless appetite for his trivia, this unthinking tissue thin nonsense.  This obscures a more critical debate or recognition of the dismantling and regressive backward motion of his Presidency. Witness EPA, Universities etc being told to not mention climate change or even accept such peril is at hand. This to my mind is a War Crime.

Heres a useful precis of the idiocy and hopelessness of a latter day Wizard of Oz, puffing and grunting but actually quite hopeless …

Trump’s G20 Trip Was More Bizarre and Embarrassing Than You Thought

I suggest for instance  … Ignorance of “liberal democracy” from the above where trump is hopelessy unable to understand what is actually meant by ‘western liberal democracy’ and thinks in his usual pointless wordsalad response that it is states out west run by LBGT enthusiasts that he is required to comment upon.

soundbite soundbite soundbite  …

Vast swathes of ‘ornery folk have forgotten theres a thing called books, of knowledge, precedent, history, depth and learning.

Who pulls the strings of trump?

I’ve said all along the trump we see and hear is a paste-board mask for more powerful and clued-up individuals.

trump: I’m frightened now.

The dreadful nastiness of donald j trump now needs to be reined in. His intent is clear and he represents a regressive mindset far worse than anything visualised as ‘the swamp’. trumps downward spiral needs to now be reined in, for decency to be pressed upon him and his unsuitability for high office made clear. However today we read trump and his tweets are getting most unpleasant, sinking to lower depths of ignorance…

Ilhan Omar, isn’t she lovely, its in her face! Likewise with AOC, these are valuable and much needed people.

Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met are Moslem and Pakistani. To berate such people is silly trending toward sick. Offenders such as trump and I guess Stephen Miller and others in the creaking decrepit wagon called the White House have most evidently inadequete and shrivelled cold hearts, their paucity of human compassion is deplorable. It also indicates they seem to have read so little, never sampled the world at large as from the printed page; their minds and hearts have never got out of first gear. As with all con artists, fantasists and bluff merchants anything other than a ten second bar-room soundbite is beyond them. Nothing wrong with such brevity in its self among ordinary folk but not fit for a President.

We know for instance trumps only reading of a serious newspaper is to work across the page with his bigboy marker to see how many times his name appears, theres no comprehension, no insight, no learning. The racists such as we see attaching themselves to the trump bunker and to trump himself are narrow and cold, certainly lacking in completeness as civilised humans.  Perhaps their own guilt and shame fuels at lashing out at others they perceive as different, after all trump has quite happily mocked the handicapped. With climate change ahead we haven’t time for this nonsense. trump is immature, always was and is ignorant, always was.

Little better than a snot-nosed playground bully from the backward class.

I see a great similarity with Mao and trump, both were determined to establish chaos and set people against each other. And Mao of course just like trump in his ignorance could never accept the notion he had made a mistake, or did not understand practical reality, both are highly impractical. Likewise, Mao and trump will so quickly turn against a previously devoted member of staff. The similarities of Mao and trump are quite uncanny.

Its quite accurate to compare Mao and trump as alike …

  • insulated from reality.
  • impractical in the extreme, Mao was extraordinarilly impractical.
  • endlessly creating chaos, delighting in chaos.
  • turning upside down established practices and customs.
  • secretive, above the common masses as if breathing rarified air.
  • hidden schemes and projects.
  • brazen, capable of violence, no compassion, much like trumps beloved sharks.
  • thinking only of themselves.
  • knowing how to manipulate/control media, to create a cult, to create fear.
  • can do no wrong.
  • will easily drop and destroy anyone that served them.
  • deliberately sets person against person.
  • its trump / Mao they serve, not the nation.
  • experts are ignored.
  • sycophants promote absurd non-truths and their masters ignorance zealously.
  • Russias influence on 1950’s and 1960’s China has never been fully revealed… just as with trump!
trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth ..... a misguided and dangerous fool, the ultimnate con-man.

Usual trump botch job …

Clueless in some respects, calculating nasty and cruel in others. To quote the Idiot in Charge … “They don’t put their best people in these caravans,”  … we haven’t got the best ppl in the WH either, in fact the dregs, the utter dregs of  wealth obsessed scum.  Third rate reality tv does not make a statesman …. but it does hone skills and help become master of the five second soundbite, to act the part, to pretend.

trump is a case of self-promotion gone crazy. A shallow facile world of branding, hype gone mad, pretence, stand off … all the usual con man tricks and honed sharp from the endless evasion of creditors large and small.

‘I suspect thou art not a Christian’…  to borrow a line from John Hustons 1953 film.

The planet is bent achingly under the threat of global warming, time is drastically short and this gold-plated turd would rather go golfing, cannot read slimmed down donnie-sized briefings and endlessly fools and cons his way through every day, aided and abetted by personnel without morals, without integrity and no shame.

Notice how nasty and vindictive and revengeful our rhetoric has become at the horrifying spectacle of a clowning bigot that can barely read hijacks a democracy; trump has proven himself many times over to be a wrecking ball.

trump is wasting our time.

Three generations from brothel keeper to president.

Thinking is an ongoing thing …

How sad to see the present state of the Mueller report ie Tuesday 26th March 2019.

trump most certainly in his outward at least low brow fashion most definitely will insist all thinking upon the matter is now closed. To shut down any intellectual or plain basic common sense enquiry to the trump mind is now dead and finished. How sad.

What prompted me to write this post is this bizarre piece from the bbc …. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47698811

Wow, some sort of collective lobotomy must certainly have occurred in the bbc news room to issue such biased unthinking nonsense. I will say in bbc defence their evening radio programme ‘The World Tonight’ 10pm r4 generally has more bite to it, closer to some critical thinking.

To inject some ‘thinking’ into this post, to help join up the many crappy little dots called the trump Administration and all the dirty connections lets read a critique to the situation so far ….. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/2663585/posts/2219372963

We also read this morning that a billion dollars is going via a military conduit for the needless wall under completely needless and mis-applied Emergency Powers. Theres already sufficient wall in all the places that matter, ‘the wall’ to trump is merely a hellbent dogma spewed at rallies to whip the crowd up and give ’em something to think about meantime. Remember his backdrop of rally attendees are handpicked for the camera, the man in the hard hat etc all stereotypes and recently once he had shouted ‘bullshit’ to the crowd he triggered a pre-arranged chant of ‘USA USA USA’ etc. Its all a con, all fakery, something he excells in, stage managed like a tv reality show, one must admit possibly the most qualified in the country to do so.

trumps wall is totally needless, merely an exercise in human misery (and impending climate change which he will not openly admit) ….. to aid protect the excessively wealthy when everything ‘goes wrong’ for the ordinary person. When trump says he’s going to get ‘the mexicans’ to pay for the wall he really means the taxpayer. This is plain and simple trumps flip-flop reversal in so many instances. He calls the media fake when he himself is exercising fakery on a Grand Scale!

Now that Muellers Report is proving a watered down version of what most people had hoped for trump feels vindicated and emboldened for further new levels of craziness, incompetence and affront to decency and good sense. To push the unspoken agenda of his bigotted cohorts themselves mostly pickled in excessive wealth and utterly remote from ordinary peoples aspirations, hopes and fears.

Lets do some more ‘thinking’ …. this man Robert Reich can aid evaluation of how nasty and hopeless trump really is. He’ll say anything to win praise, to gain support at that instant.  Maybe hopeless isn’t the right word, more like ‘say anything at the time to protect his position’…. I had a mother like that and maybe thats why i hate such underhand deceit.

trump cares nothing for the ordinary person, for education, medical assistance or basic priveliges or rights for the ordinary general population. All are signs of totalitarianism / Fascism. His vacuous and quite useless promises re coal are hopelessly out of date, of bringing back jobs again hopelessly out of date and his denigration of for instance China quite obscene considering how much profit the West makes from importing goods from China. trump will bankrupt America much as he has done with his own inherited wealth. trump will say anything for a five second soundbite.
