Mayorkas: ‘No decisions’ on Title 42, border as thousands of migrants flood Texas

"Mayorkas has repeatedly refused to call the situation on the border a “crisis,” instead, characterizing the current state as a “significant challenge.”


That word crisis seems to have taken on a new meeting in this age… fact, we can now manufacture whatever crisis‘s we want, where none exists and cover up those that DO exist To suit our needs.

A fake climate crisis is used to describe the planet greening up during this current climate OPTIMUM.


But this below is NOT a crisis?

Southern border apprehensions hit a record 2.4 million in fiscal 2022

The numbers from the last 2 years added up are much greater than the previous 10 years added up.

Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds

Global Greening

Global Green Up Slows Warming

"The paper’s authors reviewed more than 250 published articles that have used satellite data, modeling, and field observations, to understand the causes and consequences of global greening. Among the key results, the authors noted that on a global scale greening can be attributed to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Rising levels of carbon dioxide increase the rate of photosynthesis and growth in plants."

metmike: Why isn't this paper, based on 250........let me repeat that number 250 published articles using the best technology known to science............getting much news coverage?

Because they don't want you to know this. 

From the projections: According to climate models, the future looks even greener. The second map shows what the green-up might look like in the future based on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) climate model, under a scenario in which increases in greenhouse gases lead to almost 5° Celsius (9° Fahrenheit) of warming by the end of the 21st century. Specifically, it shows the predicted change in the growing season’s “leaf area index” from 2081-2100 relative to 1981-2000. The chart below the map shows the predicted changes by latitude. Notice that high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere are still expected to change the most

                Satellite data shows the per cent amount that foliage cover has changed around the world from 1982 to 2010.

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world's arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.

Figure 1: Trends in Leaf Area Index around the planet. Note the units are in hundredths (10-2) of meters per square meter. An increase of 25 (Purple, right end of scale) is actually an annual change of .025 square meters per year. Note that the largest greenings are in fact over the South American, African, and Australasian tropical rainforests.

The variable usually shown is the Leaf Area Index (LAI), an interesting measure of vegetation density. A value of 1.00 means that one square meter of the sensed vegetation, if the leaves were spread out, would entirely cover a square meter.

Plants with exceedingly dense vegetation (think of your over-fertilized tomato plants by the end of summer) have LAI values far in excess of 1.0, and some, such as sparse grasslands, may be quite a bit less than 1.0, indicating the presence of a lot of bare ground.

A new paperby Simon Munier, of France’s Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques, and several co-authors, segregates satellite-sensed LAI data into different vegetation types, taken over the period 1999-2015. This allows the researchers to quantitatively determine the amount of greening that is taking place over time, depending upon the vegetation type.

Terrified of Climate Change? You Might Have Eco-Anxiety


What to know about eco-anxiety

Written by Jennifer Huizen on December 19, 2019  Medical news

Eco-anxiety refers to a fear of environmental damage or ecological disaster. This sense of anxiety is largely based on the current and predicted future state of the environment and human-induced climate change.

According to a 2018 national survey, almost 70% of people in the United States are worried about climate change, and around 51% feel “helpless.”

Anxiety around environmental issues may stem from the awareness of a rising risk of extreme weather events, losses of livelihood or housing, fears for future generations, and feelings of helplessness.

This article discusses eco-anxiety, including what it is, the common symptoms, and how to spot and manage it.

The Environmental Burden of Generation Z

Washington Post

"Kids are terrified, anxious and depressed about climate change. Whose fault is that?"

Children suffering eco-anxiety over climate change, say psychologists


Psychologists Warn Parents, Climate Change Alarmists Against Causing 'Eco-Anxiety' in Children

9/17/19 Newsweek

Children With “Eco-Anxiety” Are Being Seen By Specialists. Should You Be Concerned?

IFL Science:

Parents told not to terrify children over climate change as rising numbers treated for 'eco-anxiety'

"Rising numbers of children are being treated for “eco-anxiety”, experts have said, as they warn parents against “terrifying” their youngsters with talk of climate catastrophe.

Protests by groups such as Extinction Rebellion, the recent fires in the Amazon and apocalyptic warnings by the teenage activist Greta Thunberg have prompted a “tsunami” of young people seeking help.

A group of psychologists working with the University of Bath says it is receiving a growing volume of enquiries from teachers, doctors and therapists unable to cope.

The Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) told The Daily Telegraph some children complaining of eco-anxiety have even been given psychiatric drugs.

The body is campaigning for anxiety specifically caused by fear for the future of the planet to be recognised as a psychological phenomenon."

Wind Turbines Killing Alarming Number of Bats: Scientists

By Melissa Colorado

Wind turbines are a critical piece of a cleaner future, but they're turning out to be anything but good for some critical wildlife.

Scientists say the spinning blades are killing an alarming number of bats that are needed to help farmers kill off crop-eating insects.

The specific species of bats – hoary bats – are helpful because they love to eat nocturnal insects, according to Dr. Winifred Frick, chief scientist at Bat Conservation International.

"Actually provide real economic value to America’s farmers," Frick said. "It's been estimated that bats provide in the billions of services to America’s farmers in terms of eating all sorts of different crop pests."


        How are bats affected by wind turbines?        


Dead bats are found beneath wind turbines all over the world. It’s estimated that tens to hundreds of thousands die at wind turbines each year in North America alone.

Unfortunately, it’s not yet clear why this is happening.

Predicted Crisis according to them for over 3 decades(that keeps NEVER happening) from climate religion perpetrated by high priests blatantly violating their own tenets:

"United Nations Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked

Associated Press – Jun 29, 1989"

   UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. 

   Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP. 

   He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control. 

   As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday. 

   Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study. 

   ″Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what’s worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesn’t have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?″ he said. 

   UNEP estimates it would cost the United States at least $100 billion to protect its east coast alone. 

   Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. 

   Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse. 

   The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown. 

   The difference may seem slight, he said, but the planet is only 9 degrees warmer now than during the 8,000-year Ice Age that ended 10,000 years ago. 

   Brown said if the warming trend continues, ″the question is will we be able to reverse the process in time? We say that within the next 10 years, given the present loads that the atmosphere has to bear, we have an opportunity to start the stabilizing process.″ 

   He said even the most conservative scientists ″already tell us there’s nothing we can do now to stop a ... change″ of about 3 degrees. 

   ″Anything beyond that, and we have to start thinking about the significant rise of the sea levels ... we can expect more ferocious storms, hurricanes, wind shear, dust erosion.″ 

   He said there is time to act, but there is no time to waste. 

   UNEP is working toward forming a scientific plan of action by the end of 1990, and the adoption of a global climate treaty by 1992. In May, delegates from 103 nations met in Nairobi, Kenya - where UNEP is based - and decided to open negotiations on the treaty next year. 

   Nations will be asked to reduce the use of fossil fuels, cut the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as methane and fluorocarbons, and preserve the rain forests.

To be clear, I don't affiliate with either party.

Just an objective, independent scientist moderating an ANTI-echo chamber based on authentic facts, evidence and science. 

For the record, I'm for greatly increasing LEGAL immigration and LEGAL admission of refugees.

For increasing humanitarian aid to foreign countries  and increasing assistance to the poor/less fortunate at home. 

These people invading at the Southern Border are almost all good people that just want a better life that they know is likely in the US. They're giving up everything they have and know in their native country because that's not very much compared to what they might get in the US.

Don't blame them. 

There's more to this story relating to why this administration is not addressing it and the amounts of Fentanyl/drugs and potential harmful people not vetted that are getting in but just don't blame these people for doing what people that originally came to our country did...........and we see them as pioneers and hero's for it!

This is supposed to be a man made climate crisis for growing crops:


A brief history of U.S. #corn yield growth since the 1860s  Notable growth in yields was seen after the adoption of modern fertilizers in the 1940s, which made drought years esp. in the 1980s stand out more than before (compare with 1930s Dust Bowl for example).



And it's somehow worse than the 1930's NATURAL weather crisis(an entire decade called the Dust Bowl)?

Supposed crisis:

1 degree of slow, mostly beneficial warming in a world where many times more people still die from extreme cold than extreme heat.

And hundreds of times more life dies from cold than from heat.

Study: Cold kills 20 times more people than heat

Not a crisis. The Holocene climate OPTIMUM based on authentic science that featured temperatures 2 deg. C WARMER THAN THIS in the higher latitudes and LESS ARCTIC SEA ICE, just 9,000-5,000 years ago:

Holocene climatic optimum

Of 140 sites across the western Arctic, there is clear evidence for conditions that were warmer than now at 120 sites. At 16 sites for which quantitative estimates have been obtained, local temperatures were on average 1.6±0.8 °C higher during the optimum than now. Northwestern North America reached peak warmth first, from 11,000 to 9,000 years ago, but the Laurentide Ice Sheet still chilled eastern Canada. Northeastern North America experienced peak warming 4,000 years later. Along the Arctic Coastal Plain in Alaska, there are indications of summer temperatures 2–3 °C warmer than now.[9] Research indicates that the Arctic had less sea ice than now.[10]

"As many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by people, according to the U.S. Department of Interior. Some human-caused fires result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, downed power lines, negligently discarded cigarettes and intentional acts of arson. The remaining 10 percent are started by lightning or lava."

NASA Detects Drop in GlobalFires


Note Australia in the bottom right. Blue is less burned area.

"Globally, the total acreage burned by fires each year declined by 24 percent between 1998 and 2015, according to a new paper in Science that analyzes NASA’s satellite data, as well as population and socioeconomic information."

Irrefutable NASA data: global fires down by 25 percent

  / 1 day ago September 16, 2020
Using satellite technology, NASA determined that between 2003 and 2019, global fires have dropped by roughly 25 percent. This makes the “climate change is worsening wildfires” argument completely moot.

One of the most interesting things researchers have discovered since MODIS began collecting measurements, noted Randerson, is a decrease in the total number of square kilometers burned each year. Between 2003 and 2019, that number has dropped by roughly 25 percent.


As populations have increased in fire-prone regions of Africa, South America, and Central Asia, grasslands and savannas have become more developed and converted into farmland. As a result, long-standing habits of burning grasslands (to clear shrubs and land for cattle or other reasons) have decreased, explained NASA Goddard Space Flight scientist Niels Andela. And instead of using fire, people increasingly use machines to clear crops.

As you can clearly see from the authentic data/evidence and science, the gatekeepers who control messaging can manufacture anything they want and convincingly sell it to people that want to believe it. 

Whether its turning the current climate optimum for life on this planet into a climate crisis (and take advantage of good people who sincerely want to do the right thing to save the planet by intentionally scaring them to enrich themselves with their self serving objectives-crony capitalism-politics-scientific/green project governmental funding) or telling us that a real crisis is not really a crisis on the southern border because they have self serving objectives there.

“Breathtaking”: The White House Releases Its Climate Heavy Hitter on the Polar Vortex

“A growing body of evidence suggests that the kind of extreme cold being experienced by much of the United States as we speak is a pattern that we can expect to see with increasing frequency as global warming continues,” Holdren asserts. Watch it:"


This air mass came from Siberia, usually the coldest place on the planet in December.

The higher latitudes like Siberia have been warming at a much greater rate than the rest of the planet (exactly like what happened during every other similar warming event (including the last one, The Medieval Warm Period, 1000 years ago that was this warm) especially in the Winter.

So the coldest places are warming the most........not a bad thing.

Question that one of my elementary school chess students could answer. 

If it's 3 deg. C warmer in Siberia during the Winter's because of global warming the past 100 years, when the jet stream comes out of Siberia, with a cross polar flow that takes it thru Canada, then deeply penetrating the US and dumping the Siberian air into our country..........will the temperatures be warmer or colder in the US when the source region of the air mass has warmed 3 deg. C??

Yes, I know what the theory of Arctic amplification is that's used to claim extreme cold is increasing because of the polar vortex breaking off and heading very far south, as the temperature gradient weakens and the jet stream weaken.

So how do you explain the dozen times that the exact same thing happened  BEFORE climate change, obviously from natural variation and why can't the same atmospheric physics causing it in the past, not be happening again, causing the exact same response and cold in the US?

Answer: Because all extreme weather, including extreme cold and snow must be caused by man made climate change..........blatantly violating the "Golden Rule of Climate Extremes"

Here it is again:

We should keep in mind, the golden rule of climate extremes:

The Golden Rule

 Considering the substantial confusion in the media about this critical issue, let me provide the GOLDEN RULE OF CLIMATE EXTREMES. Here it is:

The more extreme a climate or weather record is, the greater the contribution of natural variability.

Or to put it a different way, the larger or more unusual an extreme, the higher proportion of the extreme is due to natural variability.       



Here's the jet stream forecast for early Friday. Climate change played almost no role in this.

The current drought was not caused by climate change/global warming…..just the opposite.

its  the result of the current, extremely long lived  La Niña which is cold water anomalies in the tropical pacific. The opposite of a global warming pattern.
this is part of why global warming has paused the past 6 years

the best opportunity to end the drought will come from the slight, mostly beneficial warming resuming(with an El Nino, ideally) which caused the previous 3 decades of growing weather to be the best in the last 1,000 years.

add the beneficial CO2 during that time and growing conditions on the planet were the best since well before humans existed.

that’s why we’ve had massive global greening!
