DailyDirt: Out With A Whimper

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Our planet's environment is in a delicate balance with the ecosystem that's largely invisible. We have a thin ozone layer protecting everything from harmful UV rays. Plants seem to be doing a great job of supplying breathable oxygen. It's a bit concerning when human activity throws off something in the atmosphere on a large scale, but we might be able to do something about it. The first step, though, is admitting that we have a problem. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Well, actually it was non-climatologists that were screaming bloody murder back in the 70s...

    Nevertheless, conflating environmental destruction with the CAWG hypotheses has never been validated. Yet they keep insisting it to be true despite every one of their predictions failing starting with Mann's Hockey Stick climate model which completely fell apart after post-hiatus 1998 when global average tempruatures and CO2 rates officially deviated from one another. Yet alarmist extremists still insist on using it as a valid point of reference.

    All the while they actively combat skeptics aka 'deniers' for questioning the mainstream narrative (only to fail and be investigated themselves such as Rico21) and claim that we're all corrupted by the oil and gas industries despite the fact that the creators of the industries have divested everything in fossil fuels followed by investing,such as the Rockefellers, everything into so-called renewables despite the fact that it produces 60 thousand times more waste and releases toxins into the atmosphere that are 30,000 times more potent than co2:

    Shall I go on? The rabbit hole goes even deeper...
