Fevers of various kinds including ebola get folks put into quarantine. How about earth fever?

Quote:
Another organizer at COP 20 is the Nigerian environmental leader Nnimmo Bassey. He said: “Before I left Nigeria, my temperature was gauged twice, to determine if I have high fever or if I have Ebola. Now, the temperature of the Earth has gone 0.8 degrees above preindustrial levels. If the Earth was to go through the same process ... it would’ve been quarantined because the Earth would’ve been judged to have high fever or Ebola. But, we can’t quarantine the Earth. We need to find who are the climate criminals and quarantine them.”


Relatedly one wonders whether fossil fuel and overpopulation pushers will finally get a name they have earned - environmental terrorists.

I think all denialists should also considered as environmental terrorist too.

Convince them with evidence, not by throwing them in jail. As the planet continues to gain heat, and continues to warm, and the effects become more and more obvious, it will become harder and harder to dismiss it.

I was a skeptic not too long ago, and the evidence convinced me.

Obviously the quarantine was offered as a metaphoric analogy to ebola and not meant to be taken literally. Being a skeptic is very different from being a denialist. Denialists simply ignore the evidence to pursue a preexisting agenda.

Denialists are such a gullible stupid group.

Don't allow them in the underground 20 to 100 year fortresses.
Then blow Yellowstone. Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. :mrgreen:

Fiddling with global warming conspiracy theories while Rome burns

Posted on 11 February 2015 by dana1981

"It shouldn’t need to be said, but the Earth really is warming. Air and ocean temperatures are rising fast, ice is melting across the planet, ecosystems are shifting, sea levels are rising, and so on.


The latest zombie climate myth to rise from the dead involves the oldest form of global warming denial. It’s a conspiracy theory that the Earth isn’t really warming; rather, fraudulent climate scientists are “fiddling” with the data to introduce a false warming trend.

In The Telegraph, which is a mostly serious UK newspaper, Christopher Booker calls scientists’ adjustments to temperature data “the biggest science scandal ever.” These accusations have echoed through conservative media and online blogs, even being aired on Fox News (three times).

In reality climate scientists process the raw temperature data for very good reasons. Sometimes temperature monitoring station locations move. Sometimes the time of day at which they’re read changes. Sometimes changes are made to the instruments themselves. In each case, if adjustments aren’t made, then biases will be included in the data that don’t reflect actual changes in temperatures.

Richard Muller at UC Berkeley was skeptical that climate scientists were doing all these adjustments correctly, so he assembled the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) team to check the data for themselves. The biggest initial financial contribution to the project came from the Koch brothers.

As Muller discusses in the video below, his team confirmed that the Earth’s surface temperatures are warming. In fact, BEST finds that NASA, NOAA, and the UK Met Office have slightly underestimated the warming over the past 15 years."

"The words are hurled around like epithets.

People who reject the findings of climate science are dismissed as “deniers” and “disinformers.” Those who accept the science are attacked as “alarmists” or “warmistas. ” The latter term, evoking the Sandinista revolutionaries of Nicaragua, is perhaps meant to suggest that the science is part of some socialist plot.

In the long-running political battles over climate change, the fight about what to call the various factions has been going on for a long time. Recently, though, the issue has taken a new turn, with a public appeal that has garnered 22,000 signatures and counting.

The petition asks the news media to abandon the most frequently used term for people who question climate science, “skeptic,” and call them “climate deniers” instead."

Well, whatever, zombies or climate deniers should be quarantined. On another planet, like Jupiter. Too much cost, compost 'em instead.

I hadn't been to climate crocks for a long time.
It would be nice if the ecologically ignorant were merely composted to Replenish the Earth. :mrgreen:

Lets see if the quarantine is a nice room at the Hyatt Regency with videos and a free mini bar, okay.

"Environmental terrorists." Please climb down off of that cross.

The climbing down is easy, Milt.

It's getting someone willing to pull the nails out that's the hard part.... 8)

How intriguing! Are you sure you didn't just want Wayne and Iowa to stuff it? LOL...
I too was once a skepticalismist. You likely recall that. Now I read the Science journal too often to think otherwise... And am constantly trying to convince my friends about it, as well. However, my friends are all right-wing conservative super religious Christians - not saying this is really a bad thing, just, well, it'll never work... ](*,)

Hiya, H Farm!
Long time, no post!

Don't worry; it was the same way with me for a while, though it was mostly because my computer was down. It's been slow around here the last few years, but things are picking up a bit recently.

Hi there! Good to see your non-avatar emblazoned face again. LOL.
Maybe I can help with that a bit. My life is a little calmer right now, although college and running a shed business don't help. (I plan on planting trees to offset my sheds. Eventually. For now I'm a hypocrite.)
