Walter Williams
The Competitive Enterprise Institute has published a new paper, “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.” Keep in mind that many of the grossly wrong environmentalist predictions were made by respected scientists and government officials. My question for you is: If you were around at the time, how many government restrictions and taxes would you have urged to avoid the predicted calamity?
As reported in The New York Times (Aug. 1969) Stanford University biologist Dr. Paul Erhlich warned: “The trouble with almost all environmental problems is that by the time we have enough evidence to convince people, you’re dead. We must realize that unless we’re extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years.”
In 2000, Dr. David Viner, a senior research scientist at University of East Anglia’s climate research unit, predicted that in a few years winter snowfall would become “a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.” In 2004, the U.S. Pentagon warned President George W. Bush that major European cities would be beneath rising seas. Britain will be plunged into a Siberian climate by 2020. In 2008, Al Gore predicted that the polar ice cap would be gone in a mere 10 years. A U.S. Department of Energy study led by the U.S. Navy predicted the Arctic Ocean would experience an ice-free summer by 2016.
In May 2014, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius declared during a joint appearance with Secretary of State John Kerry that “we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.”
Peter Gunter, professor at North Texas State University, predicted in the spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness: “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions. … By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
Ecologist Kenneth Watt’s 1970 prediction was, “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000.” He added, “This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
Mark J. Perry, scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan’s Flint campus, cites 18 spectacularly wrong predictions made around the time of first Earth Day in 1970. This time it’s not about weather. Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated that humanity would run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold and silver would be gone before 1990. Kenneth Watt said, “By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate … that there won’t be any more crude oil.”
[Image: Walter-Williams-pic1.png]There were grossly wild predictions well before the first Earth Day, too. In 1939, the U.S. Department of the Interior predicted that American oil supplies would last for only another 13 years. In 1949, the secretary of the interior said the end of U.S. oil supplies was in sight. Having learned nothing from its earlier erroneous energy claims, in 1974, the U.S. Geological Survey said that the U.S. had only a 10-year supply of natural gas. However, the U.S. Energy Information Administration estimated that as of Jan. 1, 2017, there were about 2,459 trillion cubic feet of dry natural gas in the United States. That’s enough to last us for nearly a century. The United States is the largest producer of natural gas worldwide.
Today’s wild predictions about climate doom are likely to be just as true as yesteryear’s. The major difference is today’s Americans are far more gullible and more likely to spend trillions fighting global warming. And the only result is that we’ll be much poorer and less free.

  Screw the NBA & China
Posted by: k.d. - 10-09-2019, 01:59 PM - Forum: Sports - Replies (18)

A Philadelphia 76ers fan says he was tossed out of a preseason game after showing their support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, according to NBC Philadelphia
[Image: silver%201.JPG]NBA commissioner Adam Silver
Sam Wachs and his wife brought signs which read "Free Hong Kong" and "Free HK" to Tuesday night's game between the Sixers and the Guangzhou Loong-Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association. According to Wachs, he lived in Hong Kong for two years and supports the anti-government movement. 
"We were just sitting in our seats near the Chinese bench," said Wachs. 

Quote:As they were sitting, Wachs said security confiscated their signs. He then said they were kicked out of the game during the second quarter by security after they yelled, “Free Hong Kong.”
“We were saying, ‘Free Hong Kong,’’ Wachs told NBC10. “What’s wrong with that?” -NBC Philadelphia
The alleged incident is the latest in a string knee-bending to communist China after the NBA lost nearly all of its Chinese sponsors after a now-deleted pro-Hong Kong tweet by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey triggered Beijing
Quote:The National Basketball Association lost almost all of its major Chinese sponsors in the country, the league’s biggest market outside the U.S., as the government flexes its economic muscle after a tweet backing Hong Kong’s protesters triggered a backlash.
A local joint venture of Nissan Motor Co. was the latest to distance itself from the U.S. league, joining China’s largest sportswear maker, the second-biggest dairy firm and a smartphone brand who all said they were pulling out. State television CCTV and tech giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. said Tuesday they won’t show NBA’s pre-season games.
In the latest China controversy involving the basketball organization, Beijing is resorting to a time-tested strategy of targeting businesses it deems to challenge its political interests -- especially those questioning its sovereignty over certain territories. The furor, triggered by last week’s tweet by an official with the Houston Rockets, has imperiled the NBA in a multibillion-dollar market. -Bloomberg
"Beijing takes a zero-tolerance attitude to any perceived foreign interference in its internal affairs," said said Hugo Brennan, principal Asia analyst at global risk consultancy Verisk Maplecroft (via Bloomberg), adding "This explains why it is adopting such a hard-line stance."
Perhaps that explains why Rockets star James Harden was forced to grovel for yuans profusely apologized in an awkward on-camera moment; proclaiming "we love China" while standing next to All-star teammate Russell Westbrook. "For both of us individually, we go there once or twice a year. They show us the most important love," he added. 



Awkward?
The pro-Hong Kong controversy comes as the NBA embarks on what was supposed to be a key week for the organization in China - with exhibition matches scheduled for the Brooklyn Nets (recently bought by Alibaba co-founder Joe Tsai, notes Bloomberg), who will face the Los Angeles Lakers in an Oct. 12 exhibition match in Shenzhen - near the border with Hong Kong. 
At this point, the game may be off due to the controversy despite both teams already being in Shanghai. Scheduled Wednesday press conferences were postponed "given the fluidity of the situation," according to the league. 
A Wednesday evening "fan night" featuring NBA players and Chinese pop stars was canceled after local celebrities decided to pull out of the event
Quote:Workers were seen stripping a giant NBA banner in a mall in downtown Shanghai, while state-run CCTV said the league should apologize to Chinese fans and withdraw its comments. Some users demanded refunds from Tencent for their NBA subscriptions after the blackout of the preseason games.
The backlash has intensified after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver defended Morey’s right to free speech. Silver refused to apologize and said the NBA doesn’t dictate what people can or can’t say, sparking further anger in a nation that restricts free speech. China’s Communist Party-backed Global Times fired back in a tweet saying “free speech is never free.” -Bloomberg
After Silver's comments, China's state television network CCTV said in a WeChat post that he should sincerely apologize for the Chinese fans for "false comments that offended China."
Meanwhile, as The Onion satirically reports: 
Chinese Officials Respond To NBA Controversy By Moving Millions Of Citizens To NHL Re-Fanification Camps
[Image: mzc2aqobru5sw9scsrta.jpg]
BEIJING—On the heels of recent pro-Hong Kong comments by Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey, Chinese officials responded to the criticism Tuesday by moving millions of Chinese citizens to NHL re-fanification camps. “To show that China will not tolerate this flagrant disrespect for our nation amongst the ranks of the NBA, we intend to enlighten our citizens in the ways of the National Hockey League,” said Vice Premier Han Zheng, overseeing the first of many re-fanification ceremonies in a detention center outside of Beijing where citizens were encouraged at gunpoint to throw NBA merchandise into bonfires and subsequently issued compulsory Sidney Crosby jerseys, posters of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Blu-ray copies of The Cutting Edge. “With this action, we will undo the harmful legacy of basketball on our nation’s psyche, using unyielding exposure to the ways in which hockey aligns with the values of China, a dynasty not unlike that of the Boston Bruins. By the time our citizens board their trains back home, they will not remember that such a thing as the NBA ever existed. All they will know is the joy of a slapshot, the grace of a goalie, and the unlimited potential of the St. Louis Blues in the postseason.” At press time, sources confirmed that officials were forcing unpaid re-fanification camp labor to construct hockey arenas nationwide.

  Banning Rifles?
Posted by: k.d. - 10-07-2019, 05:19 PM - Forum: The Nation - Replies (10)

On September 30, the FBI issued a press release noting they have published their 2018 crime statistics. Most notable about the report is the fact that despite constant fear mongering by the mainstream media and the government that crime is running rampant, the number of violent crimes decreased 3.3 percent as compared to the previous year. Also contained in the report were the numbers and causes of deaths in murder cases. Although the FBI did not make the comparison themselves, when reading the data we can see the number of murders carried out with knives or cutting devices was five times higher than the number of murders carried out with rifles.

Sounds like knives should be the issue.

The Week’s Sleaziest, Cheesiest, and Queasiest Headlines
BERNIE SANDERS FINALLY BLOWS A GASKET
It has long been an established fact that not only is Bernie Sanders the angriest man in politics—he may be the angriest man who ever lived. For all the jibber-jabber you hear about how Donald Trump is seething with anger and hatred, anyone with an open heart and a functioning set of eyeballs could tell that at any given moment, Bernie Sanders was a mere fidgety “OY!” away from a debilitating stroke.
Last week, while Joe Biden was once again forgetting his own name and swallowing his dentures, the 78-year-old Sanders—who, if you recall, is so far into his dotage that he smashed his head on a shower door in the spring which necessitated a huge, embarrassing bandage on his head—finally succumbed to his own self-directed lifelong path of impotent rage and had some sort of cardiac event that landed his wrinkled, pickled ass in a Las Vegas hospital for surgery on a blocked artery.
From his hospital bed, the crabby, doddering socialist—who wants us to believe that a man who can’t even keep two screaming hippos in check is qualified to sit on our nuclear arsenal—exploited his own near-death experience to make some political point about “Medicare for All.”
Senator Sanders, you are only a victim of your own hatred and envy. We shed not a tear for you and hope that you’ve learned your lesson.
NEW YORK MAKES IT ILLEGAL TO SAY “ILLEGAL ALIEN”
In New York City—where you can already be fined a cool quarter-mil merely for stating the fact that a man who claims he’s a woman is still a man—you can now be fined an additional $250,000 for stating the simple fact that an illegal alien is an illegal alien, provided that the authorities are able to determine that your weird obsession with the truth was spawned from a deep-seated inner hatred.
According to a 29-page directive issued by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights—which apparently exists to sue you into pauperdom if you exercise the basic human right of free speech—not only are you forbidden from calling a spade a spade, you are even forbidden from threatening to call authorities and tell them that someone has committed a crime by being in this nation unlawfully.
The directive explains why the term “alien” is hurtful and is thus deserving of harsh, exacting, painful punishment:

Quote:‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other.’ The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.
It then goes on to propose several potential scenarios in which the sin of hate can be committed:
Quote:A hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would ‘offend’ hotel guests or make them uncomfortable….An Indian immigrant family complains to their landlord about mold and cockroaches in their unit. The landlord tells them to ‘just deal with it’ and threatens to call ICE if they file a complaint in housing court….A store owner tells two friends who are speaking Thai while shopping in his store to ‘speak English’ and ‘go back to your country.’
Even the simple basic human act of making fun of someone’s accent can now burden you to the tune of $250,000.
Why do people think that overpriced, overcrowded, open-air mental hospital is a great place to live again?
MIGRANTS RAISIN’ HELL IN GREECE
It seems as if nothing good ever comes from Lesbos.
Ungrateful Afghan migrants on the Isle of Lesbos have been raising a stink in protest of overcrowded camps, a problem they could have avoided merely by staying in their sparsely populated and prehistoric homeland.
“It has long been an established fact that not only is Bernie Sanders the angriest man in politics—he may be the angriest man who ever lived.”
But no, just like all modern migrants, they need to poop where they eat and make their hosts regret ever being nice to them. On the Sunday before last, spoiled and petulant migrants set fire to an olive grove outside their camp, killing a mother and her child. In a separate incident, the Greek driver of a speeding car carrying 12 Afghan migrants—some of them huddled in the trunk as if they were common Mexicans—ran a red light and was killed. One migrant was seriously injured and three others slightly injured. But that speeding car is a metaphor for Greece—killing itself while trying to save others.
ILLINOIS: ABORTION CAPITAL OF THE MIDWEST
If you’re a woman who lives in Missouri and are so irresponsible that you spread open your legs like the Jaws of Life and allowed a man to shoot his filthy seed inside you without contraception but seek to murder the tiny life growing inside your body, you may be chagrined to realize that the entire state harbors only a single abortion clinic—and one that is fighting constant legal attempts to shut it down.
Illinois, on the other hand, is one giant fetal meat-grinder, which has pregnant woman from across the barren and ugly Midwest flocking there to rid themselves of their unwanted spawn. And since August of 2018, Planned Parenthood has been building a super-secret mega-clinic in Illinois a mere 13 miles from Missouri’s only abortion facility, one that will sate the feticidal cravings of 11,000 women every year. It’ll be like one giant, airplane hangar-sized homicidal vacuum cleaner chewing up fetuses before they ever have a chance to smell a flower or see the sunshine. And if you find that remotely distasteful, it’s because you hate women and fear their vaginas.
LATEST PRETEEN DREADLOCK-CHOPPING HATE-CRIME HOAX SENDS NATION INTO SPIRAL OF DESPAIR
If there’s anything that will set race relations in the USA back 400 years, it’s the tendency of certain Peeps of Color to fabricate violent acts of hatred against themselves because they are either unable or unwilling to conceive of a world in which white people aren’t constantly boiling over with hatred for them.
Amari Allen is a 12-year-old black girl who attends Immanuel Bible Church in northern Virginia. She recently garnered national headlines after claiming that three white boys at the church held her down, called her ugly, and chopped off her dreadlocks in a searing act of racial hatred.
The press naturally ran with the story like Jesse Owens running from German Shepherds until Allen admitted she’d made the whole thing up. The New York Times, which should be dragged before an international tribunal for denying the Holodomor, made a point of noting the accuser’s race and that of her alleged assailants when the story broke, while it magically scrubbed their races in the headline to the follow-up story.
The church pastor publicly apologized for the fact that little Amari smeared their reputation but felt the need to insist that “our nation was sewn from the fabric of racism,” and even if young black girls are exploiting that fact now, we must always keep our eyes on the prize and never forget all the evil that was done long before any of us was born.
PORTLAND’S GREAT $195 MILLION GENDER-NEUTRAL URINAL-REMOVAL SWINDLE
The city of Portland, OR is an overwhelmingly white place that simply can’t stand overwhelmingly white places.
It also can’t stand the biological reality of sexual dimorphism, which is why it recently voted to bleed taxpayers to the tune of $195 million merely to remove all urinals from the Portland Municipal Building. That amount of money could be used to cut every single homeless person in Portland a check for $14,000, but no—the City Matriarchs decided it was more important to spare the one-tenth of one percent of the population that identifies as a gender different from the one they were correctly assigned at birth the extreme discomfort of seeing a urinal and being reminded that we are born with anatomic differences that make it impossible for women to void their bladders in urinals.
Portland, will you please do the right thing and secede?
HILLARY CLINTON: DEALING WITH BILL WAS LIKE TAKING CARE OF A TRANSGENDER CHILD
World-famous husband-batterer Hillary Clinton—who, for all we know might have a huge penis and a pair of testicles the size of avocados—recently used a disturbing simile to explain why she decided to stay by her husband Bill’s side even after he humiliated her by getting humjobs from a chubby female intern half her age.
She likened it to an experience she had with a friend whose little girl claimed she wanted to be a boy. They all researched the topic of transgenderism and offered the helpful advice that, sure, it won’t mess up your child’s mind to indulge their delusion, because it’s not as if, hey, nearly half of all “transgender” people attempt suicide or anything.
But yes, she actually said that sticking with Bill was a noble and “gutsy” move akin to avoiding the sin of transphobia with a deluded young child, rather than a cunning and ice-cold power move from a woman who makes robots look compassionate.
KANSAS CITY MAN RAPES AND KILLS HIS DAUGHTER, BLAMES SLAVERY
Jerry Bausby is a 43-year-old black man from Kansas City, MO, who was recently sentenced to consecutive life sentences for raping and murdering his daughter, whom he cursed from birth by naming her “Daizsa.”
According to a prosecutor, Bausby only mentioned his daughter once in a 45-minute speech at his sentencing, instead focusing on “racism and what he viewed as slavery in modern America as forming him into what he was.”
Funny—as far as we can recall, slaveowners discouraged slaves from murdering their children because it cut into the profit margin.
STUDY: WHITES LEAST LIKELY TO USE “HATE SPEECH” ON TWITTER
It’s always a treat when “anti-racist” technology that is constructed solely to depict whites as irredeemable agents of hatred winds up proving quite the opposite. A recent study at the University of Cornell in which artificial intelligence was programmed to detect “hate speech” and “offensive content” found that on Twitter, “tweets written in African-American English are abusive at substantially higher rates.” It also concluded that “black-aligned tweets” are “sexist at almost twice the rate of white-aligned tweets.
What’s depressing is that they apparently needed a robot to tell them this. Have they been sleeping under a rock for the past generation?
