I’m going to buy one of these.
About “organic farming” I mean. It’s no bloody good for producing food if that’s what you want to do, but it sure keeps the townies busy, trying to do what they call “live off the land”. If it wasnt sad it would be funny to wacth them.
People like me didn’t spend the last 10,000 years trying to not do organic farming, onyl to go back to it now.

In the last few days, we have had a lot of stuff about volcanoes. Mainly because our old friend, Iceland, has decided to do its normal thing from over the last 40-or-so-million-years, and produce large volumes of asthenosperic materials, for high-level-projection, in short order. Indeed, an even cursory look at geological maps of Iceland will show an even shorter history of eruptions than that.
The Icelanders ought to be our friends. Indeed, those of us who live here in the North West are probably more closely related to them than you can shake a stick at. But today, I thought I would type rapidly, and without too much affore-thought, about modern civilisation, economics, and (you’ve guessed it) climate change. We people of today, in “New Britain, a YOUNG COUNTRY” as the disgusting and over-grasping pig Blair put it, once, have never seen a real volcano. Nor indeed has anyone else alive today, or even whoever has been alive in the last 70,000 years or thereabouts. (We think….)
What would happen to the AGW movement, which sets out to destroy humanity on purpose, and is by way of almost succeeding now, if there was a real volcanic eruption? You knowof what I speak! The kind from a crater the size of Wyoming, and which carries on for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years? If not thousands? They could,and have done in the past. Planets, especially large and massive rocky ones close(ish) to suns, are big objects with a lot of inertia, in respect of the organisms which might cling tenuously to life on their surfaces. It’s fortunate that they’re mostly as big as they are, or we’d have other difficulties too.
Let’s suppose that Yellowstone goes belly-up, tomorrow. The odds are it probably won’t, but it could. Should we apply the “precuationary principles” to such as event, and indeed could we even do so?
Almost immediately, pretty much all the agricultural land of North America will vanish. Along with it, about half the world’s acreage of grain and other plant crops, in productivity terms. Forget the “people” – to GramscoStalinists, people who live in North America are mere dross or statistics. Unless they are Mexicans or “blacks” but that won’t help much as Mexico and New Orleans (where of course Gramscians say all “blacks” live and all are “disadvantaged”) will be under the ash too. The stratospheric dust and ash clouds will persist for years, maybe decades or centuries. No growing-land will be safe anywhere, and billions may die.
At first, GreeNazis will rejoice. Food will still be avilable, at a price, and the metrosexual kinds will eat, for a while. But the planet has about 66 days’ supply of primary foods for humans at any one time. After the “little local shops” have run out first, and the “locavores” have begun to get restive and angry about “failure of government initiatives to ensure supplies for families, workers and young people”, thngs will start to get exciting. People will start to rob for food and to rob food: Police forces, especially in the UK, will start to behave like they have been itching to for years, deploying all the guns they have been hoarding and training with, especially against “terrorists”. The familes of Police will eat tolerably well, for a time….
The sky will be a dark grey colour most of the time, and it will seem very cold, all the time. The sun will not appear to heat the air at all. Yorkshire-sized icebergs, carrying their own microclimates, will travel as far as Tenerife before melting. The Shetlands may have to be abandoned, along with their oil and gas – which will become a prized commodity. No surviving GreeNazis will dare to speak openly of “bio fuels”, for fear of being made to watch their children being lynched and eaten, before they themselves are spitted and roasted over the fire, fed by their children’s uncollected fat. Saudi Arabia might dry up completely and rains there may fail.
A small Ice Age might be triggered. Two or three thousand years, no more than that, if we are lucky: a mere blip on the paleogeological temperature record.
The precautionary Principle suggests to us two here, that we ought to do the following, given the 1,100 trillion tonnes of Oxygen depositied, for our benefit, in today’s atmosphere:-
(1) Burn as much fossil fuels as we can pump, to make concrete and steel to build as many nuclear power stations as we can fill with nuclides, as fast as possible,
(2) Pay the Chindians to mine as much coal as their hearts can spade up, to help same process,
(3) Raise the atmospheric CO2 percentage to about 1% asap (that’s nearly 30 times the present level!), to promote regrowth of plant life as fast as can be managed, given that air temperature /could/ be a limiting factor.
We might, just might, if we did all this, now, avert a fully-major human disaster, in which billions of people will die. Ought we not to do this for the children? Afeter all, the probability of this is far higher than AGW…
…in here…you can respect his intellectual honesty about eco-fashion green-ness etc.
Michael mentions “little shops” just below, but aside from the taxation-threats lined up by the GramscoFabiaNazi food-rationists against foods, of whatever kind, this caught my eye. Below is comment (just inside the 1,000 character limit) which I’ve posted on The Daily Wail:-
Modern supermarkets are the greatest boons to Mankind. If you didn’t want them, they’d not exist.
Admit it: you know you must, and you _/know in your heart/_ that these places exist because _/you/_ the customers want them to.
You, I, everyone here all know that we couldn’t function, in the post-modern, socialist hell-hole of frenetic slave-labour just to pay basic bills and taxation, that is “Britain, a Young Country” (remember that Tony Bliar gag?) without these convenient, cheap places.
Yes, “little local shops” are lovely. But Councils, which is to say “Soviets”, have ensured that you can’t either drive to them (pedestrianisation) or park near enough to enough of them to buy enough at one trip to make it worthwhile to try.
RIP UP all pedestrianisation schemes. (Wicked pernicious town-wrecking, on purpose by Stalinists.)
SAW OFF all parking meters and block in the holes.
SACK the “wardens” so they can go and serve you your fresh veggies at “little shops” instead.
VAT on food? Counting Cats has noticed and all. i don’t seem to see much on it in the press so it’s maybe on the cards.
Hope they’re not ration-cards, neither.
Saw this just now, this is the way that tobacco went. Now it’s all yours turns!
God, how I hate this “gate” nonsense, but it does express succinctly what’s been going on.
And to continue the Boss’s Day Of Small Things, I know it’s late but It says over at the Daily Express that “salt kills 40,000 people a year.”
Experts say this so it must be true.
Well I suppose we all have to die of something so it might as well taste nice. It puts the term food-fascism in a new light, and so why don’t we just send all these experts to a state-health-farm, in the far north somewhere, with nothing but boiled root vegetables to eat, that’ll fix them.
Personally I recommend tiny little wet-finger-touch-helpings of sodium monohydrogen-glutamate, as a hor-douevre. It actually tastes quite good. You can buy 500g and 1Kg shrink-packs of it at the local Chinese cash and carry in Manchester.
See exactly how far GramscoFabiaNazis have publicly and proudly regressed, even having themselves trumpeted in a News Paper, towards pre-capitalist-barbarian-warlordism and naked primitive tribalism.
Perhaps Brown would like to f*** the female employees too? After all, he thinks they are his. He is behaving like a pre-colonial African “Big-Man”.
I wonder which one will be the Great-Wife? Don’t yet form an orderly-queue, all you Cadbury employees, until you are safely employed by someone other than The Gorgon, who thinks he owns your firm…
“Ministers will say” that “the professions” should “stop recruiting young people in private education”.
I’m not sure what the duty-Chimpanzee type writers dislike more: the notion that the governmentists will “say” that people who have paid twice for their children’s education must now get nothing at all, or that this “government” has decided that it is a set of farmers, who farm animals called “The Middle Class”, that can be farmed for taxation-revenue as required by varying the size of said farm.
This is quite a snook in the eye for the RSPB wallahs and all those spiteful and righteous people who like to annoy and bully us folk.
I know he does not mean it and would not eat Robins, but it just releases some of the anger we need to do.
This worries me intensely. I am not a violent man: no really, I am not. But we really, really may have, one day, to cook, and eat, for our lives, all these nasty, anti-farming and anti-technology people.
The existing borders of GramscoFabiaNazi deliberate wickedness have just been breached.
And where “Film Stars” embrace something, I know already to run in the opposite direction. I often wonder why, despite all the wealth and privilege that they can command, they yet do and say what they do.
…finally they can bring in rationing. Eugenics without the overt killing-staff.
Andy “the Gau-leiter” Burnham has spoken. So you do what he says, all right?

His comments came as a series of reports suggested that tens of thousands of lives a year could be saved in Britain alone by cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
The warning comes less than a fortnight before international leaders are due to meet in Copenhagen for crunch climate change talks.
Cutting animal farming by a third could significantly reduce emissions and save around 18,000 lives a year in Britain because of the resultant drop in cases of heart disease if people eat less red meat, scientists estimate.
Another 5,000 early deaths from lung problems and other conditions could be prevented by better home insulation and reducing the use of carbon based fuels.
Reducing our dependence on cars could improve also health, as well as lower emissions, the studies found.
Switching to walking instead of driving for many journeys could also cut deaths from heart disease by up to 4,200 cases a year.
The move could also save around 200 deaths a year each from dementia and breast cancer.
The series, produced by the Lancet medical journal, calls on health ministers around the world to recognise the danger that global warming poses.
Scientists also called for a reduction in other greenhouse gases as well as carbon dioxide, such as ozone, which has been shown to cause lung problems. (I thought ozone was good? ed.)
Reducing emissions would also cut air pollution across the world, reducing deaths from heart problems, lung conditions and other acute illnesses, especially in large parts of the developing world which still suffer from high levels of pollution.
Mr Burnham said: “Climate change can seem a distant, impersonal threat – in fact the associated costs to health are a very real and present danger.
“Health ministers across the globe must act now to highlight the risk global warming poses to our communities. We need well-designed climate change policies that drive health benefits.”
Ed Miliband, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said an ambitious deal to cut climate emissions had to be reached in Copenhagen.
“To protect the world’s health we must stop dangerous climate change happening and limit temperature increases to no more than 2C.
“An ambitious and fair deal in Copenhagen will not only have major benefits in terms of reducing the climate change-related spread of infectious diseases and risks to food supply, but will also result in immediate green benefits in terms of a healthier environment and lifestyle (Baldur von Schirach) [he didn't say that, I did, and I also muttered "Walter Darré" under my breath] for a low carbon Britain – and a low carbon world.
“This is why we are going to Copenhagen to secure an ambitious, effective and fair deal for everyone,” he said.
Margaret Chan, of the World Health Organisation, warned that “no mercy” would be shown for humans’ mistakes over climate change.
…”Experts said” (of course they are, of course they did.)
…and you did not speak up, for you were not a loaf, a sausage or a corn-flake…
First, persuade Teh Masses (which you have de-educated on purpose, by ruining the schools and then saying that Television is all that matters) that it is harmless fun. You do this by paying fingered and bribed members of the Enemy-Class to partake in simulations using insects etc. Then set up proper Stalinist Show-Trials, for those whom you really fear and want dead.
Aztecs knew what to do with celebrities. We are not only the same and no better, but our “masters” use them to further degrade us as a people.
As to GramscoFabiaNazis: Antonio Gramsci was a dietician, like Tony Blair: whereas Lenin, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez (who has just died) Marx, Stalin and Hitler and Gordon Brown were all force-feeders. I am labasted here sometimes for use of the GFN term. I do no eschew the tactics of Gramsci – we ought to learn from them, pick them up, and use them to utterly overturn, for all time and for ever, the works of today’s British GFN Enemy-Class. Then, safe for a little time behind our waters, we can turn to the rest of the world that is currently enslaved, which is for all practical purposes all of it.
All over again. All still to do: what a waste of eight or ten, or twelve or twenty generations of Men. And, with hindsight, how deliberate was the plan to prevent that, and how astonishingly blind we have been, to not see it.
Our sovereign-space-miners and asteroidal-mineral-traders, and JovoSaturnian-Lunar-resource-extractors, whom we could have had by now, are nowhere to be seen. They might have been prospecting for methane, water, Iridium, Gold and diamonds to just play with as Woolworths-jewellery-for-kiddies’-parties-and-goody-bags,more Tungsten for proper light bulbs, and the like, could be At The Stars, by now.
