Honestly, I just don’t know who to believe anymore. I’m not intelligent enough to be able to decipher whether or not people like you and James Hansen are correct, or if people like John Clauser, Richard Lindzen and Ivar Giaever are correct. I just find it all exhausting at this stage.
Listen up fellow LSWMs, your only acceptable opinion on the changing weather can be found on the WUWT website. From game theory (Nash equilibrium), your best move now is to double down and buy that Porsche or whatever you are into and go out and eat ribeye steaks with jumbo shrimp, because what you don’t consume now someone else will, the elites most of all.
I know our warmist host believes that by changing our diet and ending the use of fossil fuels we can survive in some fruitarian paradise. Good luck with that. But I am not an autist and can dress myself so this is hard for me to accept.

“She’s drunk, if I don’t rape her, someone else will.”
Here’s the difference between you and me.
I found something that I love, dearly, with all of my heart: The living Earth, God’s humble attempt at creating something beautiful.
And I’m going to do what I can, to cherish and protect it. And to make it clear that I do not consent to its annihilation.
What the ultimate outcome will be is secondary to the simple fact that I will not betray it. I will not abandon my love for it.
I can respect your perspective here, but I don’t recall your response to those critics (such as myself) who bring up the issue of animal predation. Perhaps I missed it.
That’s kind of a deal-killer for me, with respect to any romanticized version of Nature. If you mean to love a rich and verdant Earth bereft of any sentient beings, I can get behind that. Otherwise, I cannot shake the feeling that life on this planet is in some ways comparable to a haunted house. There is always something vaguely sinister lurking in the background.
It’s easy to stand on a hilltop surrounded by lush plant life and write paeans to “Pure Nature”, but I’m always thinking of the millions of insects and critters doing very nasty things to each other deep in the nooks and crannies that are not so obvious to the naked eye, upon that hilltop.
As the song says, “Everything looks perfect from far away…”
Yes, evolution by natural selection is fundamentally evil, this is a prison planet for torturing souls. Devour to survive – is, always has been and always will be. There is no good reason why we should be trapped in material bodies compelled to eat (cause suffering to) other living beings just to avoid our own suffering, and aroused to bringing more life into this cursed world.
“It’s easy to stand on a hilltop surrounded by lush plant life and write paeans to “Pure Nature”
Yes, that is right. That is one of the reasons I don’t travel unless necessary – so that I don’t have to see animals suffer in the wild. Rintrah is right about the monstrousness of factory farms, but being in the Netherlands he does not see nature in tooth and claw.
This is why I think Christ (who was God) died as he did. It was an apology to mankind and to nature. He was saying, “I can’t even save my Son/Myself in this material realm., and I suffer as you do and I suffer at the sight of your suffering.” “I am suffering with you, and I am dying with all of you, but there is more than the material world and you need to love one another in this material world as well as you can.” So maybe the Cathars (who were vegan/vegetarian) were right, maybe even overall. And maybe Christ the man didn’t quite understand this, or maybe those who wrote his words didn’t catch this. Fortunately no-one from my sect will read what I just wrote, haha. Well, they’d forgive me.
Although there is no official theory which can explain the new enormous ocean heating (only the core theory of TES can), it was clear to me that CO2-Warriors will do everything to misuse this effect for their propaganda. And because of the inscrutably complexity they will have success with this tactic.
So sad to see how the world descents into an ocean of lies.
Read your enemy on nitter, or do you fear his reasoning?
He already discarded this (if I remember right you will have the wrong side of the planet for this ship emission theory).
I have the impression you feel yourself infallible because of your exceptional mental powers. But intelligence does not protect you from being fooled. You should always be able to completely discard all your worldviews. Only by this way you can develop new thoughts.
Socrates: “I know that I know nothing”. All our scientific knowledge is based on axioms, and axioms are unproven assumptions. It all hovers over the nothingness.
But I feel like this all is pointless for you because the fanatic in you is willingly to even sacrifice the truth only for the win.
Do you really think if the Earth’s core was causing global warming, we wouldn’t have noticed by now?
Do you really think there would be some obscure anonymous LSWM guru on Twitter, who was the only one who figured that out somehow?
Just link me to the relevant posts then.

LSWMs always turn into these giant “open-minded” critical thinkers when it comes to the entire planet’s future, but would you also follow this logic if you had thyroid cancer?
Your Quote: “Do you really think if the Earth’s core was causing global warming, we wouldn’t have noticed by now?”
We always treated the inner Earth as blackbody with a constant heat emission. It was our hubris.
Your Quote: “Do you really think there would be some obscure anonymous LSWM guru on Twitter, who was the only one who figured that out somehow?”
You and me and him, we are all outsiders. If this is reason enough for you to discard him then why should I not discard you?
And by the way: I think he is way more clever than both of us.
Your Quote: “Just link me to the relevant posts then.”
So I have to do your homework?
TES Quote: “If this were ‘container ship sulfur emission reductions’ then the largest ocean warming would have occurred when the sun’s geographic position was directly over the MOST ocean surface (Dec 2022).
Instead, the opposite is happening.” (read more there and counter it)
“I found something that I love, dearly, with all of my heart: The living Earth, God’s humble attempt at creating something beautiful.” May your religious faith deliver you from condemnation.
You recently wrote an essay about religious conversion and transformation. At the time I couldn’t understand why you chose to explore Paul the Apostle.
In a way you are Saul of Tarsus. You defiled the Earth with your bitcoin mining participation. An epiphany of some sort directed you to repent of your wicked ways, and now you exhort LSWM to see the divinity of Earth. Sin no more, prodigal son. You are now Paul.
XR is the guerilla marketing department of Big Green Capital. Their fake activism lends credibility to fake “green” solutions like EVs, carbon ofsetting, ESG, renewable whatever, organic labelling, and so on.
XR convinces woke leftist types that they are on the right side of history as long as they share inspirational videos on their niche blog.
In “greenwashing”, they are the ones doing the washing.
I am a bit disappointed that you actually fell for it.
