This is IT. This is the year we find out if the “Alarmists” were right.

From : Global Warming Acceleration: El Nino Measuring Stick Looks Good. (Nov, 14 2023) James Hansen, , Makiko Sato, Reto Ruedy

“They do not preach that their God will rouse them a little before the nuts work loose.”

— From “The Sons of Martha” by Kipling (aka “The Engineers Creed”)

The cognitive dissonance between this report from James Hansen and what’s on the news is striking and at times “mind-melting”.

This week I watched Chris Hayes on MSNBC do a 10 minute segment about how GREAT the economy is doing and how Democrats need to talk about that more. He went on and on about how inflation is dropping, jobs are everywhere, the stock market is booming, and the Biden IRA is getting projects done across the country.

He just cannot understand why people FEEL so gloomy and anxious about the FUTURE. He blamed the “messaging” of the Democrats.

Then, you contrast that, with this, and “cognitive dissonance” happens.
