Rare

We had a real thunderstorm last night. Real t-storms are rare here, less than one a year. Mostly we get convective popups, with 15 minutes of heavy rain announced by one small lightning. Last night was an hour of heavy rain, with some hail and continuous lightning. Fortunately no major wind in this part of town.

The east side of town got a tornado. No doubt about it. Look at the picture. Straight winds can’t do that. Lightning can’t do that. A falling tree can’t do that. Only a tornado. Several of the commenters saw a funnel cloud and circling debris.

Real tornados are extremely rare here. Every few years a funnel cloud tries to descend but doesn’t hit. In the 30 years I’ve lived here, this is the first actual hit.

I checked 1957, the year when EVERY FUCKING PLACE ON EARTH had a tornado. Sure enough there was one in ‘rural Spokane county’, on exactly the same day. The ’57 hit was on open farmland, about the same longitude and 5 miles south of yesterday’s hit.

The “weather” bureau didn’t predict the serious thunderstorm, didn’t predict the tornado, and so far hasn’t deigned to notice the tornado.

Next day, they got around to noticing it, and added another tornado on the west side of the metro area.

Fucking idiots

New Satanist has been pushing the Carbon genocide for decades. They got on board the “virus” holocaust with equal demonic frenzy, but “virus” isn’t really their main thrill-kill. They’ve been itching to get back to carbon torture.

Now they’re back, with the same brainless idiotic satanic frenzy.

The world’s biggest facility for removing carbon dioxide directly from the air is running behind schedule in Iceland, after punishing Arctic conditions froze machinery and forced the Swiss company behind it to make modifications. The Climeworks “Orca” plant to the east of Reykjavik is a direct air capture facility, which uses geothermal energy to power fans that funnel air into collector units. Inside, CO2 is heated, piped and stored in basalt rock as calcium carbonate, permanently locking away the carbon. Operations have been ramping up towards the plant’s capacity of removing 4000 tonnes of CO2 a year. But Christoph Beuttler at Climeworks tells New Scientist that this is taking longer than planned. While the team knew Icelandic weather could be extreme, he says the winter just gone was especially harsh, with low temperatures stressing mechanical elements of the machines.

We must pray harder to Gaia! We must build bigger prayer wheels to stop the burning burning furnace! But unfortunately the burning burning furnace is freezing our prayer wheels. More money! More money!

Reprint on scam-spotting

Previous item led to this from last year.

Another where’s the guild question. In this case I’m not really puzzled by the absence of a guild response because I know exactly how and when the guild was subverted and flipped. It happened 20 years ago.

The current “virus” holocaust is based HEAVILY on cheating with software.

The use of software to create and expand a fake crisis began with the Carbon Cult, with Mann’s fake hockey stick models showing exponential increase of CO2 “pollution”.

A more visible example for outsiders was VW’s diesel cheating. Diesel is intrinsically and incurably MORE DIRTY THAN GASOLINE, but the Carbon Cult flipped the comparison and redefined diesel as clean because VW bribed them to flip. VW then used software to fake the numbers. The control computer in each car sensed when the car was connected to an official test rig, and outputted artifically low numbers.

Same thing with the “virus”. Exponential models can’t possibly represent reality because reality is never exponential. Governments use the models because governments want to kill everyone. Software processes the “cases”, and HIPAA prevents us from checking the “cases”. Even if the “cases” were honestly counted, “cases” are THE WRONG FUCKING MEASUREMENT. Just as with diesel vs gasoline, the holocausters have flipped medicine upside down, redefining “cases” as dirty.

The proper MEANING of “cases” isn’t in the models, so we don’t get to hear it.

From a modern perspective it seems obvious that ABSTRACT software makes cheating easier, but this total misuse wasn’t always normal. There was a guild spirit in software that tried to protect the craft from misuse and cheating.

When did it change? 2000. Dotcom. Cheaters took over the biz.

Computing began with the government census, at a time when the government wanted accuracy. From 1890 to 1990 software mainly served corporate accounting. Computers were seen as fancy adding machines, and they were REQUIRED to be strictly honest.

Bookkeepers and their adding machines were the honest end of the system. After the bookkeeper had carefully verified the accuracy of the double-entry ledger, the accountant walked in and arbitrarily moved numbers around to cheat on taxes. This may be unfamiliar to outsiders, but it was standard procedure. You can see the setup powerfully in this Racket Squad episode.

The machine was the honest end, and the human accountant was the criminal.

The dotcommers reversed the paradigm. They used the software itself to create false impressions of their wealth and corporate solidity, then used software to manipulate the market, and had no compunction at all about ruining lives to EXPONENTIALLY increase their wealth.

More specifically, how did software switch in the public mind from an adding machine to an authority, from a fact to a command?

In the Racket Squad episode, the boss tells the bookkeeper to release an arbitrary and dishonest set of numbers. The bookkeeper refuses. Boss says “Are you calling me a liar?” Bookkeeper says “No, but my adding machine doesn’t lie either.” In that situation we can see clearly who’s lying.

The trick seems to be AI. Most people don’t understand that AI is still an adding machine. The AI hype by both commercial and governmental propagandists has persuaded us that AI can make its own decisions independent of human input, while remaining impartial and mechanical.

Can’t have it both ways. The trick conflates the demons who are writing the intentionally bad predictive models with the computer that doesn’t lie. Because the DECISION POWER has been falsely transferred to the computer, we don’t blame the demons who actually DECIDED to write counterfactual and unrealistic math models.

If most people learned math in the context of job-related problems and projects, they would understand the stages of this process better. They’d know that the PROGRAMMER can lie, even if the CPU doesn’t lie.

Corporate personhood

The fiction that a corporation is a person usually serves to make life easier for evil corporations. Judge Alsup takes it seriously.

First, reprinting from 2019.

= = = = = START PARTIAL REPRINT:

In an age of infinitely fake outrage and fake action and fake every fucking thing, it’s hugely refreshing to see genuine RAGE by officials who HAVE THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING about the rage.

= = = = =

William Alsup, The Only Legitimate Federal Judge, says:

“Usually a criminal on probation is forthcoming and admits what they need to admit. You haven’t admitted much,” Alsup told lawyers for the company at a hearing Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco.

“There’s a clear-cut pattern here: that PGE is starting these fires.”

Most important is what Judge Alsup DIDN’T say. He DIDN’T say “Global warming started these fires”, because Global Warming DIDN’T start these fires. PGE started these fires. It’s possible for a utility company to AVOID causing fires, as Avista has proved. PGE did not follow Avista’s example.

For the first fucking time in modern history, we are placing the blame for a weather-related event on the CORRECT CULPRIT.

It wasn’t RUSSIAN_MEDDLING or ALT_RIGHT MEDDLING or GLOBAL_WARMING or SMIRKING_WHITE_PRIVILEGE or any of those nonsensical mythical ENTITIES multiplied by Deepstate to create chaos and exterminate Deplorables and MISPLACE BLAME.

The fires were caused by PGE, and a Federal JUDGE placed the blame on PGE. Historic first. Unprecedented.

= = = = = END 2019 REPRINT.

At that time Alsup placed PGE on probation.

Now he has submitted a report on the unrepentant corporate PERSON:

Rehabilitation of a criminal offender remains the paramount goal of probation. During these five years of criminal probation, we have tried hard to rehabililate PGE. As the supervising distict judge, however, I must acknowledge failure.

While on probation, PGE has set at least 31 wildfires, burned nearly 1.5 million acres, burned 23,956 structures, and killed 113 Californians.

PGE has pled guilty to 84 manslaughter charges for its ignition of the 2018 Camp Fire in Butte County, is facing 5 felony and 28 misdemeanor charges from the 2019 Kincade Fire in Sonoma County, is facing pending involuntary manslaughter charges from the 2020 Zogg Fire in Shasta County, and is facing a civil suit by five counties from the 2021 Dixie Fire.

So for these five years, PGE has gone on a crime spree and will emerge from probation as a continuing menace to California.

HARDASS and personal.

At one time I pleaded for a more consistent use of corporate personhood. Judge Alsup is doing it!
