We are not going to die from climate change

My annual birthday-month fund-raising drive for Behind the Black is now on-going. Not only do your donations help pay my bills, they give me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Tony Heller today published this quite thorough review of the failed climate predictions by global warming scientists/activists, while also providing a great summary of the real state of our climate.

You can disagree or question him on one point or another, but the overall data once again illustrates the uncertainty that surrounds climate science. We really do not know what is going on, and any predictions that claim we do are hogwash.

Above all, take a look at the section on the benefits of increased CO2 in the atmosphere. This data is widespread and robust, and has been confirmed by agriculturists for decades. The planet is getting greener and as a result more fertile as there has been an increase in atmospheric CO2.

Meanwhile, the fear-mongers insist the world will end in just over eleven years, based not on any real data but on their emotional desire for catastrophe.



  • “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” Ocasio-Cortez told Coates. “This is the war — this is our World War II.”

    And she gives the game away. I have long posited that the under-35 crowd is fustrated that all the big battles were fought before they came along. Defeat tyranny? Check. Eliminate institutional racism? Done. Restore the environment in the Western world? Yepper. Social equality for females? Work in progress, but the major groundwork has been done.

    So we have a bunch of people who want to Do Something, but there’s no Big Cause to get behind. Unless you invent one. Or several. I am sure the readers of this blog can think of many socially useful endeavors for smart young people, but they all likely require work and committment and a skill set beyond ‘rabble-rousing’.

    Someone should point out to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez that even WW II had be financed; and as a result we have Federal personal income tax withholding.

    Great stuff!

    As Mike Lee has said in the Senate getting married, having kids, and raising them is the greatest thing that most people can do. It’s sad that there are so many people anxiously avoiding being useful adults.

    If packed in as densely as New York all the people of the whole planet they would fit into a single mega city smaller than Texas.

    The whole rest of the planet could be used for food.

    We could probably go as high as 10 times as many people as we have now before we go Soylent Green.
