Still far more worrisome than global warming: solar coronal mass ejections

“Still far more worrisome than global warming: solar coronal mass ejections” (2017-02-01). Space climate alarmist Anthony Watts reminds his readers about space weather (Coronal Mass Ejections) and tells them that we can’t pay any attention to climate change (which is a commie lie anyway) until every other risk has been averted first.

A CME “would plunge our society into darkness and chaos as our sensitive electronics, networks, and power systems fail world-wide”!!! But “global warming worriers” are apparently “blind to this looming and certain threat and prefer squabbling over a few tenths of a degree change in temperature that may or may not be entirely man-made.”

Coronal Mass Ejections are scary!

Anthony presents a Coronal Mass Ejection in cartoon form.

A significant CME aimed at Earth could undoubtably cause serious trouble for our electricity transmission networks and the devices connected to them, as well as affecting commercial satellites. This is a serious matter in electrical engineering circles.

But methinks Anthony’s space climate alarmism is more concerned his own smug energy-intensive technology bubble than he is about humanity in general. How will Anthony receive President Trump’s tweets? Your average African or Southeast Asian subsistence farmer would ride out this kind of transient tech disaster easily, assuming they haven’t already watched their soil blow away or be poisoned by relentless anthropogenic global warming.

  1. Tony has always been a Koch/Heartland Institute paid science denier. I deal with his propaganda everyday and have been doing so for many years. Only serious paid fools still deny scientific consensus.

  2. I thought you would actually debate his points of view with some sort of science. You know you can go onto WUWT and debate people there if you want to. A

    Actually show them they are wrong.

    [Anthony said nothing about this, just implied that a CME is “scarier” than global warming. In a first-world way. Regarding your suggestion, there is no debate at WUWT, just smug self-delusion and censorship of criticism. – Ben]

  3. Hi, please clarify why you think Mr.Watts is a science denier and explain how concensus science works as opposed to the normal scientific methods. I read a wide range of blogs and like to understand the motivation behind their existence.

    I do hope you can help.

    Kind regards,


    [Oh, god. “consensus science”? You’ve read just enough blogs to latch on to a pathetic denialist straw man.
    Anthony is a science denier because:

    • He turns against any scientist that he thinks will follow the denialist agenda but DOESN’T (see Richard Muller’s Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature study).
    • He favours snide personal attacks and baseless insinuation of corruption against climate scientists over rational criticism.
    • He has never adjusted his whack-a-mole “arguments” as a result of contradictory scientific evidence. – Ben]

  4. I have to agree with “Dean”. I don´t see the point of this posting? You didn´t like WUWTs article? And?…Obviously there was nothing wrong with it and the image of the sun – earth perspective is entirely correct and surely not of WUWTs making.

    [So four paragraphs is too hard to keep straight in your head? Anthony’s article is a transparent and baseless attempt to distract and minimize. Perhaps a twelve word sentence is also too hard to focus on. – Ben]

    • Also concur. The transparently dishonest bias Watts displays ( and allows via oddballs like Worrell, Archibald et al) needs to be challenged.

      If you “don´t see the point of this posting” then then I suggest you remove your blinkers.

  5. I’ve listened to some of that Suspicious Benzoyl character & The Adaptable Man. I’ve never heard them quantify anything or provide any useful analysis that’s relevant to the topic (Suspicious Benzoyl has something about ~11.5 year cycle might make 0.13% change in Amundsen Sea air pressure, that’s about it). It’s all pretty cartoons like the Charlie Watts thing you’ve copied. I can’t listen to all the hours of it because it’s a waste of my life. It’s same as Jehovah’s Witnesses, they want you in their world wasting your life on that, they want you standing at the door arguing instead of having a real life with interesting reality.
