We are finally having a rainy, cold winter in Southern California, so I’m getting into studying up on reservoir levels, such as at Lake Cachuma near Ojai.

[Note: as a commenter pointed out, I’m confusing, Whooping Crane / Whooping Cough-style, Lake Cachuma near Solvang in Santa Barbara County with Lake Casitas.]

That’s a beautiful mountain valley town near the Ventura coast that almost burned to the ground not long ago. Ojai (which Charles Norman would point out has been the center of New Age hoo-ha in California since the 1800s) used to be great because the proximity of the cool ocean kept it green. But it pretty much stopped raining in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties about a decade ago. Now, though, it’s raining (and snowing on 8,800 foot Mt. Pinos). And Lake Cachuma is finally above 50% full (or empty, as you prefer).

The Lompoc Record reports on the trout release yesterday in Lake Cachuma in rather privacy-infringing terms:

As with previous releases, the fish from Mt. Lassen Trout Farms Inc. in Paynes Creek are triploid trout, meaning they are sterile, which prevents them from breeding with any wild stock that might be living in the lake.

For anglers, planting triploid trout improves the fishing experience because sterile fish will put all their energy into growing, rather than expending some of it on spawning, so they are larger and fight harder when hooked.

Aquaculturists say breeding sterile trout also results in higher-quality fish with brighter coloration.

“By planting fish in the lake, Santa Barbara County Parks hopes to encourage outdoor activity when people tend to spend less time outdoors,” the County Parks spokesman said.

“Plus, during winter months, cooler water temperatures are ideal for releasing rainbow trout,” he added.

Spending time outdoors has its benefits, he noted, because exercise and physical activity produce endorphins that may improve the ability to sleep, which in turn reduces stress.

Okay …

Personally, I’m a big fan of Global Cooling, especially in warm places. For example, it’s been snowing in Maui, not just on top of the 10,000 foot high volcano, but down to 6,000 feet this week.

My least favorite dreams tend to be about giant tidal waves, while my favorite dreams are often about cold weather in warm places. For example, I can vividly recall a pleasant dream from several decades ago when I lived in Chicago about a cold winter in which glaciers formed on the north side of the Hollywood Hills and spilled out halfway across Ventura Boulevard.

In contrast, I had a terrible nightmare about when I was living on the 21st floor overlooking Lake Michigan and a giant tidal wave 180 feet tall wiped out the lower 18 floors, leaving me and my enormous Survivor Guilt okay.

    In the last 45 years, the mean age of first-time moms has gone up by five years — from 21.4 years old to 26.3....The U.S. is far from the top when it comes to pushing the age-at-first-birth limit. In some countries, the mean age of mothers when they start having kids is over 30.

    Depends on where you live. In the hipper cities, (white & asian) women aren't so much as encouraged to wait as they are encouraged (nay, expected) to do many more interesting things in their 20s and 30s until they suddenly realize time's up.

    Blacks fish, but they don't generally fly fish. I have a friend that works at one of the Big Box Outdoors places. She works in the gun department, but occasionally fills in in fishing. She said the only blacks that ever asked about waders were preachers using them for baptizing. Blacks generally fish with the less expensive kind of casting reels and rods or with the old straight poles and bobbers, nothing fancy.

    Fly fishing and fly tying is a white thing.

    I worked with a black guy who spent all his money at Cabelas and the HD dealer. He had the full fly fishing get up. He used to have a nice 9 foot 5/6 weight fly rod. On opening day of trout season, he’d load it up with monofilament and poke it out over all the little kids crowding the banks and drop power bait to the waiting trout. Apparently, size does matter.

    Down south there is in fact legitimate negro fishing-lots of it. But it's not remotely like the 'LL Bean Negro' fantasies of our Ruling Class minions in the ad business.

    Uh, ok.

    If it is all the same to you, I’ll stick to my Dr Who dream where I am in the Tardis with Rose, Amy, Clara, AND River Song. Or just Amy.

    But if it makes you feel any better, I do have one nightmare:

    I wake on a Freighter at sea, containers, barrels everywhere, and I am searching….for something….and of all things, there is Hillary. Her, me, an empty ship, and the next thing you know, I am bending her over a barrel, doing to her what she has been doing to the taxpayers all these years….. Oh, and it just doesn’t knock the cobwebs, she likes it… a lot. Next thing you know, I am back on land and she is following me everywhere, work , Church, Chess Club even. Everyone, even Chess Club, begins to know my standards are so low I did Hillary. And that is just the beginning of the nightmare.

    I've often wondered if maybe Freud was right about a lot of his theories. At least as they apply to his fellow Jews. It obviously resonated with his clients and colleagues. To the Jewish mind, maybe it all had the ring of truth to it.

    It's obvious that psychology is very different for different groups of people. If you are a therapist with a primarily NE euro descended patient base you are going to treat a lot of anxiety and depression. If you are treating blacks you are not going to see much in the way of anxiety disorders.

    A couple at my church just came back from Africa. They can't stop talking about how happy the Africans are all the time. They sing and dance. They don't worry about tomorrow all the time. Their take away is that we should be more like the Africans. My contention is that we CAN'T. All our ancestors with that psychology froze to death in the European winter.

    Anxiety is the double edged sword gifted to us by natural selection. We lay awake at night worrying about things we can't possibly control; the upside is this creates a society with tremendous social and financial capital.

    We have anxiety and depression and the Jews have... whatever crazy stuff Freud was taking about.

  17. “Personally, I’m a big fan of Global Cooling, especially in warm places.”

    You won’t be when sustained lower temperatures start significantly reducing crop yields.

    ““By planting fish in the lake, Santa Barbara County Parks hopes to encourage outdoor activity when people tend to spend less time outdoors,” ”

    Social engineering knows no bounds when our betters decide what’s best for us.

  18. Incel trout is almost as novel a concept as black fly fishermen. I’ve been fly fishing since I was 13, and have traveled a bit doing it, and have only seen one black person at it that entire span of 46 years. He had no clue what he was doing, and was simply accompanying his boss on a sales excursion (they took a client fishing). I’m sure there must be a few blacks who genuinely enjoy the aesthetics of fly fishing, I’ve just never run across one.

    I’m sure I’m triggering someone using the term “black.” I need to read Titania’s new book when it’s released, so I’ll be up on Current Year etiquette.

One toddler at the reception that day fell into the lily pond, and a lot of us were thinking the smart thing to do was to fall in as well while pulling him out.

If oceans rise as shown in Blade Runner, it may be necessary to build the orbital solar shade NASA has studied, and crank the global temperature down to quickly lower sea level again.

  28. Trout, Dating & Gene Pools

    The metaphors seem weak here, but what the hell, might as well take the bait from our Steve Sailer Savior, becoming fishers of men (and women) in hopes of landing an armchair “keeper “of some Deep (and not *too* banal) Thoughts.

    Unlike, salmon, trout, like humans, do not die as a result of spawning. For both members of a human pair bond, there are costs in rearing a young human up to its own reproductive age. A 2 am booty call is replaced by a baby call for food or consolation or a clean, dry diaper. A visibly pregnant female is less attractive not only to those seeking to cuckold her mate, but also to her mate. (It is not trivial that most pregnant human females have continued interest in intercourse). The effects of a previous pregnancy on a human are quite visible for variable lengths of time. Many women and men “let themselves go” following marriage, though this is limited by the prospect of infidelity.

    A single male or female human will have more “energy” to put into “growing,” that is to say, staying “hot” via body building, grooming and dressing -or to put it another way, becoming a better “catch” – a “higher-quality fish with brighter coloration.” Flogging this further, a single human in prime condition can be a challenge to land.

    Plenty of OTOH’s come to mind and the above can be expanded to note that while more women than men have reproductive success, men have a longer reproductive age. All things being equal, a woman in general prefers to mate with a single, unencumbered male (while reserving the option for her own later infidelity), a middle-aged male with considerable resources who has demonstrated skill, intelligence and lack of impulsivity in raising offspring to at least childhood with a spouse has some appeal. It’s difficult not to add that many women, as well as men, are attracted to a potential mate who is accompanied by friends of the same sex and that such a “band of brothers” might be one capable of defending the tribe as well as herself. Following up on the previous thread of how women might have selected for *relatively* non-violent males, one poster (not me) seemed to suggest that a band of brothers (having in common high intelligence, low impulsivity, group loyalty, etc), in general can beat a “band of murderers.” Of course, after marriage, a woman will typically try to limit the time a husband spends with his buddies. Moderation in all things; women (at least those living in a healthy society) prefer men who are not too wimpy, yet not too rape-y or murder-y.

    The climate forcing that was leading us into another ice age peak (technically, we’ve been in an ice age for millions of years, only we’re also in a minimum known as the Holocene) has been overwhelmed by the industrial age. This forcing is unlike any others. It has been a much more rapid increase than evolution has had to deal with for a very, very long time. Which means, the equilibrium temperature at current CO2 levels is much higher than the current temp. Factor in all the frozen water stored above sea level in Greenland and Antarctica. Melt/collapse lags ocean temps, and ocean temps lag equilibrium (theoretical) CO2 forced air temps.

    Shorter version: We’re all fucked. Our grandkids are fucked in the ass.

  36. Blog posts like these are why Sailer is truly the best.

  37. I am not sure how they created the sterile triploid trout. But the advantages of non-breeding species usually result from sterile hybrids like the mule. Or random mutations like the Navel Orange.

    One sought after game fish is the fearsome Tiger Musky, which is the sterile cross of the Northern Pike and the common Muskellunge. They are basically fresh water barracuda, whose favorite food is ducklings.

    Another fun fact about the trout stocked in Lake Cachuma is that they provide the food source for a population of really huge Largemouth Bass. Once a bass gets big enough to eat the endless supply of six-inch rainbow trout they keep throwing in the lake, it can grow to truly monster size.

    Due to this stocking, Southern California reservoirs such as Cachuma and Castaic produce more record size bass than the places you would normally expect, like Florida or Texas.

  38. “The Rage [And Age] Of The Incels”?

    It can not go unnoticed by those who have wasted a lot of time on the beer-reviewed “journals” of cable television “nature” channels that in a lot of mammalian species a dominant male has exclusive access to a harem of females. -Which makes for a lot of unhappy incel bachelors. Challenges for control of the harem are one-on-one and the females are content to accept the results of those contests. Human sensibilities are anthropomorphically offended when learning that when a male lion takes over a pride he kills the cubs of the previous ruler – and that the lionesses then go into heat. As posted earlier if a white male “Lone Ranger” complains of genocide being carried out by non-white males, a female “Tonto” is (if she senses that it would be prudent to change to the winning side) apt to say, “What do you mean ‘*we*,’ Kemosabe?”

    The outcome of such non-human contests is to some extent eugenic, but such bands of animals haven’t evolved much in the way of intelligence and there would seem to be a limit on the size of such bands compared to us homo saps. A human who has recently given birth is in need of considerable assistance and protection. Some of that can be given by her relatives, but the aid given by the child’s father has probably been important in human evolution. It is at least plausible that small groups of incel male humans banded together to kill a dominate male who had been “hogging” all of, or more than his “fair share” of females. An evolutionary struggle between monogamy and various degrees of polygamy has likely been of considerable antiquity. In a small band of hunter-gatherers a male who is better than average at hunting might be able to “afford” say, four or so, females.

    In more advanced societies with higher levels of resource inequality, some harems have been enormous. Those societies might be relatively weak with respect to fighting off invaders (why should I fight for that fat sumbitch who gots all the womens?) and for the many bachelors, unhappy, but, as has often been noted, could be successful if those incels are harnessed in wars for land, treasure and foreign booty booty. If memory serves, some tribes of Zulu forbade marriage for young males until they had washed their spears in blood and some horse nomads had a similar requirement of decapitating an enemy.

    The ancient Romans seem to have had some tradition of monogamy which was arguably diminished during the “degeneracy” (to a greater or lesser degree) of various Roman emperors. I wish that I could remember where I read an assertion that in the presence of a particular conquering Germanic tribe, “even the Romans are chaste.”

    “The Rage Of The Incels” by Jia Tolentino in the New Yorker (link below) might be worth a look. She struggles to understand the viewpoints of some other people (some of whom are nutjobs), but overall seems grotesquely un-self aware. Like nearly all leftists, she’s committed to genocidal war on non-totalitarian white males and frequently resorts to name-calling rather than rebut some arguments. In particular she gives little or no evidence of finding much wrong with, to logically extend the argument, a society in which say, .0001% of the men (generally exceptionally handsome and/or wealthy) have all or nearly all of the heterosexual intercourse (with the possible exception of prostitution). She is deficient with respect to the nuances (yeah, the word gags me) of cause and effect and is strong in the way of projection.

    It would be fun to go through her piece piece by piece, but I’ve been hogging too much (mostly meaning that I’m lazy and want to run some errands) of what looks like a sparsely populated comment thread and would love (OK, not really, am often more chagrined by than grateful for the vasty deeps of knowledge exhibited by most of the posters here) to see others do a better job of that than could Your ‘eepishly ‘umble Servant.

    There’s a risk in discussing incels that another poster or troll could write something along the lines of, “Yeah, I bet that *you* are a pathetic incel loser.” A rebuttal of, “I’m married; of *course* I’m an incel!” is tempting, but (not that it should matter), while I deeply, deeply regret not having more kids, have had five children by three women –adding like comic Jonathan Winters who said after claiming that during World War II he had shot a Japanese gardener, “Not that I’m proud of that.”

Inherited from me (I suppose) by one only of my children, though I did not know that about my son until recently, and he did not know it about me. I mean the terrible recurrent dream (beginning with memory) of the Great Wave, towering up, and coming in ineluctably over the trees and green fields. (I bequeathed it to Faramir.)

    Blacks fish, but they don’t generally fly fish. I have a friend that works at one of the Big Box Outdoors places. She works in the gun department, but occasionally fills in in fishing. She said the only blacks that ever asked about waders were preachers using them for baptizing. Blacks generally fish with the less expensive kind of casting reels and rods or with the old straight poles and bobbers, nothing fancy.

    I remember fishing one time for trout that had been stocked at catchable size. I like to use an ultra-light rig, but I still remember holding my rod up, wondering ‘is that a fish on there?’

    Now, hook a wild trout. No such uncertainty arises.

    I’m not a purist; if the trout are stocked as fingerlings, they’re fine. But trout planted at ten inches or whatever? I’m genuinely not interested. Good bass food, I guess.

    Seriously, if all dreams are sex dreams ( I am pretty sure Freud said that) tidal waves…..that can’t be good.

    I’ve often wondered if maybe Freud was right about a lot of his theories. At least as they apply to his fellow Jews. It obviously resonated with his clients and colleagues. To the Jewish mind, maybe it all had the ring of truth to it.

    It’s obvious that psychology is very different for different groups of people. If you are a therapist with a primarily NE euro descended patient base you are going to treat a lot of anxiety and depression. If you are treating blacks you are not going to see much in the way of anxiety disorders.

    A couple at my church just came back from Africa. They can’t stop talking about how happy the Africans are all the time. They sing and dance. They don’t worry about tomorrow all the time. Their take away is that we should be more like the Africans. My contention is that we CAN’T. All our ancestors with that psychology froze to death in the European winter.

    Anxiety is the double edged sword gifted to us by natural selection. We lay awake at night worrying about things we can’t possibly control; the upside is this creates a society with tremendous social and financial capital.

    In the US, the median age of a woman when she has her first child is [already] 30 for those with master’s degree.

    Perhaps Surprisingly, Indians REALLY Aren’t That Intelligent (On Average)
    Lance Welton

    India is a confusing place. It is able to send hordes of extremely intelligent and highly-motivated scientists to the USA, yet its city centres are so chaotic that tourists have to pay street urchins to throw themselves into the road just so that they can cross it. The land of the Hindus is pursuing its own space program, yet vast areas of the country lack electricity, running water, and even people who can read. What does this say about Indian IQ?

    The late J. Philippe Rushton gave an answer to this question back in 2007: Indians Aren’t That Intelligent (On Average). But much more evidence has since been developed.

    A country’s average IQ is a massively important predictor of national accomplishment and national average living standards, as Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen showed in their seminal 2012 book Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences, as well as in their earlier book IQ and the Wealth of Nations.

    For a few years now a German psychologist trained in political science called David Becker has been tracking down and collating every possible source that might permit assessment of any nation’s IQ. The young researcher, who is based at Chemnitz Technical University in East Germany (the city was known as Karl-Marx-Stadt under Communism) places all his research online so that those who criticise national IQ data can easily have their criticisms refuted. He clearly presents his methodology, in a way which Lynn did not, so that critics can see precisely what’s he’s done, how he’s done it and why: samples are rated for reliability, for example.

    On this basis, Becker has also recalculated all of Richard Lynn’s much-denounced National IQs. Significantly, his calculations strongly correlate with Lynn’s—see the results at ViewOnIQ.org.

    As part of this project, Becker has also updated and recalculated the Indian IQ, the most recent known study of which was published in 2015 [Gender Performance on Intelligence Quotient Test among Medical Students in a Government Medical College, By B. Uppu et al., IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences, 2015]

    Incredibly, considering all of the “Raj from The Big Bang Theory” types populating science departments at America’s top universities, Becker’s meta-analysis of 11 studies revises the Indian average IQ downwards. Lynn and Vanhanen calculated it to be 82.2, but Becker has found it to be a mere 76.24.

    How can a country with an IQ only six points above that of Sub-Saharan Africa churn out scientists of such high calibre and even begin to take people into space?

    The answer: it is not merely in the geographical sense that India is a subcontinent—defined as a large mass of land separated by mountains from the rest of the continent. It is also continent-like in terms of its population.

    India and China both contain over a billion people, but in China those people are overwhelmingly of one ethnicity, Han, and speak one language, Mandarin. The situation in India could hardly be more different.

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/3c/Language_region_maps_of_India.svg/480px-Language_region_maps_of_India.svg.pngThe national languages are Hindi and (still) English. However, there are at least 780 distinct languages spoken in India, with most—though not all—of these languages being associated with a distinct ethnic group, rather as is the case with languages in Europe. Around 78% of Indians, and especially those in the north, speak Indo-Aryan languages that are distantly related to English, such as Hindi (41% of India’s population), Bengali (8%), and Gujarati (4.4%). Most of rest, particularly those in the South, speak Dravidian languages, such as Telegu (7.1%), Tamil (5.9%) and Kannada (3.6%). Some even speak language “isolates” unrelated to any other known language.(See Wikipedia’s List of languages by number of native speakers in India.)

    There are also about 225,000 Anglo-Indians—down from some 2 million at independence in 1947. These are native English speakers, and usually Christian, ultimately descended from a union between an English colonial and a (usually female) Indian. Over the centuries, Anglo-Indians have married each other, effectively creating an ethnic group.

    India is divided into 29 states and 7 territories, many of these states are named after their dominant ethnic group and its language. And, crucially, there seem to be exceptional IQ differences between these states, paralleling the way in which southern India is rich and northern India is poor.

    Richard Lynn and Indian psychologist Prateek Yadav explored differences in intelligence between Indian states in a study published in the leading journal Intelligence in 2015. [Differences in cognitive ability, per capita income, infant mortality, fertility and latitude across the states of India, By Richard Lynn & Prateek Yadav, Intelligence, 2015]. Drawing upon data from all 29 states plus 4 territories, they found a very clear pattern.

    Southern India is markedly more intelligent than northern India; the correlation between latitude and their test of cognitive ability being -0.43. Even more significantly, coastal India is more intelligent than inland India, the correlation between closeness to coast and average intelligence being -0.60.

    The most intelligent (on average) area is a territory called Daman and Dui, two islands that were part of Portugal’s historic Goa colony, seized by India in 1961. (American pundit Dinesh D’Souza is descended from Goanese converts to Catholicism). Unfortunately, the authors do not calculate IQ scores, merely presenting average scores on standardized school tests. These islands are followed, in average score, by Kerala, a southern coastal state. The least intelligent, and also poorest, India state is Bihar, an inland northern state, close to Bangladesh.

    Helpfully, Lynn and Yadav tested a host of other variables, meaning they were able to reasonably hypothesize as to the causes of these differences. A key factor: Islam. Around 20% of India’s population is Muslim and the Muslims overwhelmingly live in the north. Indeed, the Muslims were politically dominant in northern India—building the Taj Mahal and other such achievements—until the British fully took control in the nineteenth century.

    The correlation between the percentage of Muslims in a state and its intelligence was -0.32. The authors propose that a likely reason is inbreeding. Hindus tend not to marry cousins, but Muslims tend strongly to marry their cousins. Cousin marriage elevates the probability of double doses of mutant genes, meaning that the brain works less well, so intelligences starts to fall. The more inbreeding there is in a nation the lower its IQ tends to be [Inbreeding depression and IQ in a study of 72 countries, by Michael A. Woodley, Intelligence, 2009]

    Coastal India, they suggest, is more intelligent because there will have been greater breeding with European traders. This is most obvious when we consider that the most intelligent part of India is two islands which were run by Portugal until 1961. (American pundit Dinesh D’Souza is descended from Goanese converts to Catholicism). We would also expect that ambitious and intelligent Indians born in the interior would be likely to migrate to the wealthy coastal towns. Intelligence predicts migration, as the eminent intelligence researcher Arthur Jensen noted in his 1998 book The g Factor.

    It is perhaps no coincidence that the only Indian citizen to win a Nobel Prize in the hard sciences—Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (right)who took the Physics prize in 1930—was a Tamil from Madras. Madras is (where else?) on the southern coast.

    It is India’s ethnic diversity which explains why it displays extremes: intellectual brilliance yet grinding poverty. This may be a problem for India, in that it is the population’s average intelligence—which predicts so much about the fate of nations. With its low average IQ, India is corrupt, unfair, and shambolic.

    This is perhaps why so many highly intelligent Indians are desperate to come to the West—probably reducing India’s average IQ even further in the process, but certainly not improving the GOP’s chances.

    That's funny, but in Texas you see a lot of black people fishing in lakes and the coast, although I have never seen any in actual waders doing fly fishing.

    I think Texas still has decent sized communities of rural blacks who grow up fishing, hunting and riding horses. Also fish a classic staple of the classic Southern American diet from which all soul food comes.

    Down south there is in fact legitimate negro fishing-lots of it. But it’s not remotely like the ‘LL Bean Negro’ fantasies of our Ruling Class minions in the ad business.

    The metaphors seem weak here, but what the hell, might as well take the bait from our Steve Sailer Savior, becoming fishers of men (and women) in hopes of landing an armchair "keeper "of some Deep (and not *too* banal) Thoughts.

    Unlike, salmon, trout, like humans, do not die as a result of spawning. For both members of a human pair bond, there are costs in rearing a young human up to its own reproductive age. A 2 am booty call is replaced by a baby call for food or consolation or a clean, dry diaper. A visibly pregnant female is less attractive not only to those seeking to cuckold her mate, but also to her mate. (It is not trivial that most pregnant human females have continued interest in intercourse). The effects of a previous pregnancy on a human are quite visible for variable lengths of time. Many women and men "let themselves go" following marriage, though this is limited by the prospect of infidelity.

    A single male or female human will have more "energy" to put into "growing," that is to say, staying "hot" via body building, grooming and dressing -or to put it another way, becoming a better "catch" - a "higher-quality fish with brighter coloration." Flogging this further, a single human in prime condition can be a challenge to land.

    Plenty of OTOH's come to mind and the above can be expanded to note that while more women than men have reproductive success, men have a longer reproductive age. All things being equal, a woman in general prefers to mate with a single, unencumbered male (while reserving the option for her own later infidelity), a middle-aged male with considerable resources who has demonstrated skill, intelligence and lack of impulsivity in raising offspring to at least childhood with a spouse has some appeal. It's difficult not to add that many women, as well as men, are attracted to a potential mate who is accompanied by friends of the same sex and that such a "band of brothers" might be one capable of defending the tribe as well as herself. Following up on the previous thread of how women might have selected for *relatively* non-violent males, one poster (not me) seemed to suggest that a band of brothers (having in common high intelligence, low impulsivity, group loyalty, etc), in general can beat a "band of murderers." Of course, after marriage, a woman will typically try to limit the time a husband spends with his buddies. Moderation in all things; women (at least those living in a healthy society) prefer men who are not too wimpy, yet not too rape-y or murder-y.

    Have as usual droned on far too long, but hope that others will chime or interestingly un-chime in along these lines.

    Personally, I’m a big fan of Global Cooling, especially in warm places. For example, it’s been snowing in Maui, not just on top of the 10,000 foot high volcano, but down to 6,000 feet this week.
     
    The climate forcing that was leading us into another ice age peak (technically, we've been in an ice age for millions of years, only we're also in a minimum known as the Holocene) has been overwhelmed by the industrial age. This forcing is unlike any others. It has been a much more rapid increase than evolution has had to deal with for a very, very long time. Which means, the equilibrium temperature at current CO2 levels is much higher than the current temp. Factor in all the frozen water stored above sea level in Greenland and Antarctica. Melt/collapse lags ocean temps, and ocean temps lag equilibrium (theoretical) CO2 forced air temps.

    Shorter version: We're all fucked. Our grandkids are fucked in the ass.

    My least favorite dreams tend to be about giant tidal waves, while my favorite dreams are often about cold weather in warm places. For example, I can vividly recall a pleasant dream from several decades ago when I lived in Chicago about a cold winter in which glaciers formed on the north side of the Hollywood Hills and spilled out halfway across Ventura Boulevard.
     
    Move to Uranus. It's cold there.

    In contrast, I had a terrible nightmare about when I was living on the 21st floor overlooking Lake Michigan and a giant tidal wave 180 feet tall wiped out the lower 18 floors, leaving me and my enormous Survivor Guilt okay.

    I know of no climate scientist who says we have only 5-10 years left before dire results. For you to imply that is dishonest and misleading.

    What climate scientists had been saying is that we have only 5-10 years left to get CO2 under control before irreversible effects start to kick in. It's too late. We're out of time. Irreversible effects have already started and since CO2 is higher than before the start of the industrial age, the effects which lag will only continue to worsen and there is nothing we can do about that.

    Yes. When I watched that I thought Ojai must be a nice place to be from. I’ve never been there, but it seems like it would be really nice if it weren’t in Hitlerfornia.

    It’s funny what triggers a brain into long-term recall. I read your post and saw the town “Ojai”, which triggered a spat of “I’ve heard of that place before”. After I went to do a task I put it aside and then all of a sudden, it came to me. Ojai is the town where Colonel Steve Austin’s (The Six Million Dollar Man) parents lived and there was a show episode oriented around that. I remembered because I loved that show as a kid.

    Natalie has taken down all her videos again in another auto-da-fe so she’ll probably put them up again in a week or so. Other than her YT channel she has been pretty quiescent. Searching for “Natalie Hynde” on Google News pulls up stuff on her mother and her 2014 “besetting” where she superglued herself to a male compatriot to block fracking drilling in Balcombe, nothing more recent. She admitted on a YT post she did stuff like this because “she got off on it”.

    I had a dream where UR closed down and I had to go out and do some work instead of reading about Zionists all day.

    Terrifying
