Tinyhouse Prepper Does A Nice Summary Of Global Warming BS

I occasionally look at stuff about the Tiny House ‘movement’ and about folks who live in RVs. I’ve lived ‘on the road’ a fair amount while working and that’s a kind of ‘tiny house’ issue (be it a hotel room, or 4 days in a car on the road…)

Similarly, living in Quake Country and having gone through a 7 quake and been without electricity a few days, being “prepared” is just part of the landscape requirements.

So I’ve watched a couple of Tinyhouse Prepper videos from time to time. That means YouTube feeds me more ;-) So this morning, this one popped up. In it, ‘Tinyhouse Prepper’ looks at Climate Change / Global Warming.

Now part of what I find interesting is just how effectively the ‘Prepper’ mind set deals with the Global Warming fraud. We look at potential threats and we assess them objectively looking for demonstrated risks and then plan what mitigations are needed. It can be lethal to get that wrong, so we tend to be rather careful and thorough about it. Do I need 32 gallons, or 64 gallons of water to get through a post-quake water system outage? How many weeks (or months) of food? What bracing on the house? Will a tent be needed and what is the right one for this weather and climate? Where to store it so it isn’t destroyed if the house collapses or burns?

That was partly why I started looking at “Global Warming” a decade+ back. Thinking: “This looks bad. I need to look into it and see how bad, where, and what will happen.” What I found was a lot of fuzzy thinking, errors, and flat out lies from the Warmistas, and well reasoned well supported logically consistent analysis from the Skeptics. Then I did a LOT of my own, which largely showed it was a ‘Politically Driven Process’ for economic change / domination / money suckage.

So here’s another Prepper who essentially follows the same path. What is it? How bad will it be? What mitigations are needed? And arrives at the same end point: Warming is BS, we need to prep for cold and snow and crop losses from cold wet windy fields.

While I come at things with a very strong computer sciences, data analysis, and math background; it is nice to see the same conclusions from a regular guy (not a “Geek”).

His video has some interesting details I’d missed. In particular the record snow in Hawaii (and ends with a startling photo of an iced over frozen truck on a mountain there – looking more like Wyoming in winter than Hawaii). So he’s got graphs, and photos, and news stories from a variety of sites. All presented in an orderly way by a Regular Guy. It gives me hope that more Regular Guys “get it” too. One need not be a math and computer wiz / geek. 29 minutes.

Anyone interested in “being prepared” ought to look at some of his other videos too. A “Tiny House” does not have a lot of room for things like a year supply of food or a few hundred gallons of water & extra fuel. It takes special care to make that work on a smaller scale.

    Interesting video, but I doubt that his appeal to believers in AGW to listen with an open mind will work. They cling to their belief, lately reinforced by the good oldie “the end of the Earth is coming” much like the typical Democrat still unable to believe that Trump won.
    On that last, its over 3 weeks since Labor lost the Australian Federal election (against all the predictions by the polls) and they are trying to explain the reasons for their loss.
    The Little Ice Age started with a series of severe storms (involving much loss of life) but heavy rain is blamed for the food shortages starting in 1315-1320AD, so his comment about the shortening of the growing season is pertinent. Indoor hydroponics might well help the struggling citizen – although the Greenies will try and ban it.

    Interesting but very USA focussed. I wonder if any folks in Oz have put together a similar Youtube ?

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    Hypnotic but also a good physical representation of how multiple harmonic motions can fall into and out of phase. Like sun spot cycles, ocean oscillations orbital eccentricity etc.

    @Bill in Oz, I am shivering South of Brisbane. Joanne Nova is a great source for AAGW (Anti-Anthropogenic Global Warming) and her husband David Evans produced some complex arithmetic proof that the cooling follows sunspots by an 11 year lag. There are some ideas why, but that doesn’t matter, the real proof is that it hindcasts perfectly which nobody else’s models do. You may recall that around 2010 there was a looooong period with no sunspots. Everybody was waiting for solar cycle 24 (which has just ended) to start. I suggested buying a few sweaters and some coal at the time. It gives me no pleasure to be a Casandra, more people die from cold than from heat.

    On the other hand, it was always clear to me that AGW/Climate Change was a scam. Sadly, as somebody smarter than me (it may have been Mark Twain), you can’t argue somebody out of an opinion that they haven’t argued themselves into. i.e. once a position is held on faith, anything you say only confirms that belief.

    Here endeth the lesson. :)

    I have a paper in hard copy by Professor Alexander, ‘A critical assessment of current climate change science.’ (April 2006) that I downloaded in 2011, but I can’t get Google to retrieve it. I discuss it in some detail on my blog, see below. It is a detailed study of the river flow of the Vaal River, South Africa’s major river, and its synchronicity with the double sunspot cycle such that Professor Alexander was able to predict the South African floods of 1995 and 2006. https://beththeserf.wordpress.com/2018/12/23/56th-edition-serf-under_ground-journal/ I have found some of its significant data reproduced in a shorter publication by Alexander on Professor Pielke’s blog. It includes in its Tables 9 and 10, on pp 23/24 of the original paper. Figure 9 is very important. It demonstrates the unequivocal synchronous relationship between annual sunspot numbers and the annual flows in the Vaal River. Note the alternating above (rising) and below (falling) flow sequences. Note also their synchronous relationship with sunspot numbers; as well as the statistically significant (95%), 21-year periodicity in the flow data that is synchronous with the double sunspot cycle.


    Professor Alexander observes that in a number of his memos and publications he has demonstrated an undeniable linkage between changes in solar magnetic polarity and concurrent changes in South African rainfall and river flow.

    ‘As long ago as in 1995 at the international IGBP conference here in Pretoria after I presented my Floods, droughts and climate change study,’ says Professor Alexander, ‘I asked the question, What causes El Nino? I received the joking response that if I could answer that question I might qualify for the Nobel Prize. Well, I can now answer that question. It is the direct consequence of changes in solar magnetic polarity. The occurrences during the past months, January and February 2006, have provided the proof that I needed.’ A critical assessment of current climate change scice, April 2006 p29.

    Something to file away in your preparedness file – how to handle tear gas cannisters.

    @Larry L:

    Wonder if there will be a market for CamelBack packs with a hose and nozzle?

  8. Steven Fraser says:

    @EM: when I was a scout, we BURIED things we wanted to preserve/protect from the elements. Taken to the logical extreme, a ‘stash’ algorithm.

    When ‘tiny-housed’, it is not necessary to keep it ( all reserve resources ) indoors.

    Plastic is your friend in such circumstances. Also other people whom you trust.

    Reminds me of a re-implementation of the ‘pioneer ethic’

    I was thinking the same thing, like the Indian packs wild land fire fighters used, or those large super soaker squirt guns.

    On the bury and preserve note – another bit of triva I came across a while back:
    The VC protected buried fire arms and ammo in a tropical environment and hide them by using simple expedient dry bags.

    They put the stuff inside lengths of truck tire inner tubes sealed at the ends, and tossed them in the rice patty where no one would look for them.

    Speaking of “cold”, we are going to have a couple of cold days, relative to the mean, today and tomorrow. Overnight low was below 60F this morning. Forecast low tonight is expected to be in the low to mid 50sF. Average for this date is about 70F. Highs in the low to mid 80s; where the average is 90F. Just a week or two ago, it was “supposed” to be warmer than average. It was, but not nearly as much as the forecast said.

    Some of the references down-stream of that by different authors mention Table 9 so might give you a cross reference if that isn’t the paper you are looking for

    Ian, thx. One of the papers ‘An Assessment of the likely consequences of global warming on the climate of South Africa, (‘Nov 2005,) a longer paper than my 55 page doc, has cross references to the April 2006 Technical Report, including charts.Tomorrow I’ll do a detailed check. :)
