It is interesting to watch the “transition” of a regular guy, Bill, of Tinyhouse Prepper as he “gets it” about the Global Warming scam and the reality of our present cooling regimen.
He has the same experience a lot of us have had. Starts with “curiosity” about what he needed to prepare for, then he got the “usual” attack by the warmistas with the “pile on” of appeal to authority (“you are not a scientist” or “you MUST listen to the REAL Climate Scientists”). Well, no. We’ve seen their email and know they are “lying for effect” (The “Nature Trick” for one…) We’ve seen the rewrite of the IPCC report to invert the “findings” to make the policy section match the desired goal of grabbing control. We’ve seen those “scientists” erase the very hot 1930s and the 30 year cold plunge into the mid ’70s from the data records (the ’70s that I lived through AND remember…).
When you have directly observed someone lying, why would you treat them as a “source of authority”? Eh?
So the inevitable transition happens. You trust your own eyes, memory, experience, observations. Then you start the search for other information that might be less biased, adjusted, manipulated; frankly you start looking for truth in the forest of lies.
For Bill THP, he does, IMHO, look a bit too much at “YouTube Channels” (and of them, a couple that are more prone to “excitability” than I like…) and not enough at analysis sites. Then again, I regularly get “beat up” with complaints about NOT being emotional about things. I just don’t do the emotional thing much, being hard core “centered” and “at peace”. I’m also way over the top analytical and don’t mind at all being in the middle of a few GigaBytes of data looking at the bytes. So maybe it is me more than Bill.
Hopefully he’s looking at some of Tony Heller’s stuff. A science oriented channel by someone heavy with clue, who also presents things in a way approachable by a regular joe or jane.
Now this video isn’t all just realizing and seeing. Bill also does a bit of a Dig Here! into some particulars on crops and planting. He cites pages from some places I’d not thought to look, so on my ToDo List is to watch this again, and find the URLs for places like the crop insurance report and others.
Then he talks about crop losses last year in Canada. I had not heard of wheat in Canada having problems last year ( I wonder why…) so that’s put me onto another idea: Find historical records for crop production in Canada and plot it. Being further north, Canada will have “issues” from cold before the rest of us. Similarly crops in Russia, Finland, Sweden, Norway – even Germany, Poland and Ukraine might be indicators.
So there’s a few reasons to watch this video. From the human sympathy for a “fellow traveler” getting pelted by the same Warmista Drones, to the “watching someone get it”, to the way he does his “self proving up” and then collecting the data sources he’s used to add to the kit. Besides, he’s just a nice guy and does cool stuff. (In one video he install a cubic foot or so sized wood stove in his tiny house. I didn’t even know they existed. Just right for warming a small bungalow in the woods, efficiently, while having a place to keep your pot of coffee warm on top! Made in Canada, BTW.)
As he notes, his major focus is NOT Global Warming or Grand Solar Minimum stuff and he’s not going to change that. He’s continuing to focus on “Prepping” stuff and “Tiny House” stuff. His spouse, Elizabeth, does videos on cooking, so when Bill made his version of a pile of bricks rocket stove, she did the cooking on it demo. They are both just nice regular folks, and with some interesting ideas in their videos.
Oh heck, why talk about them when I can link them in for anyone interested:
Here’s his rocket stove and Elizabeth cooking. 24 minutes:
She uses “Thrive” brand freeze dried vegetables and meat. I’ve not bothered laying in a stock of freeze dried stuff. I had done that 30 years ago when the family was larger and space much more dear. Then about 20 to 15 years ago “ran off the stock” and used it up. It was a bit old and needed some ‘rotation’ anyway, and I was having trouble meeting all the bills, so it was a nice financial relief to avoid food costs for a few months. Everything was fine and taste was quite good. So on my “maybe soon” list is to once again look at buying some #10 cans of freeze dried stuff. It really is good and does keep easily for years.
Then, here’s the one on the wood stove. It would be just right for a small cabin in the woods, or maybe even for that one cool week in a home in Florida ;-)
Here’s the one where Bill installs the tiny wood stove. 24 minutes:
They have several other videos of doing different things with the stove. I’ve not watched most of them (yet ;-) but it is exactly what I wish I had in the living room for just heating that one room.
So there you go. Hopefully you find their videos interesting and useful.
