K-Dog frivolity.

So how is this going to play out.  Trump wants everyone back to work and America has not had a consistent lock-down to eliminate the infection enough so that it won't immediately come back.

People are under a complete delusion that Trump is doing a good job when he isn't doing anything but making the rich richer than they already are in this.

Are people going to wake up and say WTF or is it going to be more yeah, masks, ventilators, cool we are covered, what are they used for?

We got testing bitches?



WTF

Reminds me.....Mort Drucker, RIP.

I once worked in that hospital, as did the missus. I went to school for four years, right across the street.

If you are at point of death from Covid19, you are probably in a coma and or on a ventilator, unable to speak. I know she means well discouraging people exposing themselves, but she would do better to point out things like cases of lasting damage or lasting sickness in younger cohort.

Sheepish St Bernard dog rescued from English mountain

https://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2020/07/28/sheepish-st-bernard-dog-rescued-from-english-mountain.html

Sixteen rescuers were called out to save a St Bernard dog stranded on an English mountain, in an embarrassing episode for the member of a breed more famed for rescuing stricken humans from the icy dangers of the high Alps.

The pooch named Daisy collapsed while descending from the summit of Scafell Pike in northwest England with her owners, Wasdale Mountain Rescue team according to a statement on their website Sunday.

After showing signs of pain in her legs, she sat down and refused to get up, it said, and with nightfall fast approaching, local police called in the rescuers for help.

Upon reaching the stricken pooch, the team "carefully introduced themselves to Daisy... and with the help of a treat or two members were able to assess her condition and administer analgesia for the pain."

Maneuvering the 55-kilogram dog onto a stretcher in order to carry her off the hill required "plenty" of treats, they added.

"From there on, apart from the odd little adjustment, the evacuation was found to be not that much different to a normal adult evacuation."

Video from the five-hour evacuation showed the team fording a river and hauling the stretcher over a fence.

After the team reached the bottom of the hill, a relieved Daisy got back on her feet and even managed a slight, sheepish wag of her tail.

"She apparently feels a bit guilty and slightly embarrassed about letting down the image of her cousins bouncing across the Alpine snows," the rescuers said.

First bred as pathfinders and rescue dogs by monks living in the St Bernard Pass between Switzerland and Italy, St Bernard dogs have been credited with rescuing hundreds of people over the centuries.

Younger generation fail to notice environmental decline due to generational amnesia risking conservation longevity
21 August 2020

https://www.britishecologicalsociety.org/younger-generation-fail-to-notice-environmental-decline-due-to-generational-amnesia-risking-conservation-longevity/

By Emilie Aimé


Young people are not as aware of environmental changes compared to the older generation, according to a new report published in People and Nature, by Royal Holloway, University of London and international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society London) due to a phenomenon known as Shifting Baseline Syndrome (SBS).



A murmuration of starlings, once a common sight but unfortunately increasingly rare as their numbers in England alone declined by 87% between 1967 and 2015. Photo credit: © Daniel Biber, Germany, Shortlist, Professional, Natural World & Wildlife, 2018 Sony World Photography Awards.

The UK-based paper showcases a reduced awareness of issues such as the decline in bird biodiversity and abundance within their area compared to several years ago – meaning vital naturalist knowledge is being lost over generations without people noticing.

This worrying gap in knowledge and perception surrounding environmental data and conservation needs between the older and younger generation could hinder efforts to emphasise the urgent need for conservation action for declining species.

SBS describes a persistent downgrading of perceived ‘normal’ environmental conditions with every new generation, leading to under-estimation of the true magnitude of long-term environmental change on a global scale.

The presence of SBS could impact the validity of traditional and local ecological knowledge and participatory techniques as well as conservation target-setting. However, despite increasing recognition, there has been little empirical evidence for SBS, until now.

The study used large-scale online questionnaires to collect public perceptions of long-term biological change regarding ten UK garden bird species, such as Goldfinch, Blue Tit and House Sparrow, as well as demographic information and measures of knowledge and experience of the local environment.

A paired data approach compared social perceptions to a large-scale longitudinal biological dataset provided by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). Using information theoretic and model selection techniques, the authors estimated the relative importance of multiple demographic, social and psychological predictors of SBS.

This provided a comprehensive framework for exploring and a proving actual evidence of SBS and its impacts on perceptions of conservation need for species in decline.

Lead author and PhD student, Lizzie Jones from Royal Holloway’s Department of Biological Sciences and ZSL’s Institute of Zoology, said: “There needs to be more intergenerational communication about the environment and conservation issues. People tend to compare current ecological conditions to reference points set within their own experience, forgetting or ignoring valuable historical information.

“This research supports the need to encourage greater intergenerational communication and increase experience of local nature. Knowledge of past environments is critical to evaluate current conditions, comprehend change and set effective conservation targets for the future.

“Discovering evidence of SBS in public perceptions of animal and bird species experienced within everyday life demonstrates that this is a pervasive social issue, not only in niche contexts such as fisheries, but in public perceptions of local nature.”

There is a wealth of experimental evidence recording people’s long-term impacts on the natural environment, from species extinctions and habitat loss to climate change. However, conservation baselines are often formed using more recent information.

By focussing on more recent timescales, we at more at risk of losing perspective on the true magnitude of long-term environmental change, as historical environmental information is lost over time and people do not notice.

Looks like a good thread to wake up. 

Suddenly I'm moved to make this announcement, for the record.

As some of you know I have roots in peak oil and years ago became active as K-Dog on James Howard Kunstlers 'Clusterfuck Nation'.  JHK is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Homeland Security Deep State and his blog is troll central.  But that is off topic and worth pages.

What I'm moved to announce is that JHK finally had enough of me and banned me the Monday before the Cow Hat Insurrection.  The thought that the timing is suspicious suddenly hit me and caused me to come here.

On Monday before the insurrection I read JHKs Monday article.  I paused and from the bottom of my heart honestly expressed myself.

Quote
JHK I think you and Trump are on the same meds and they need to be balanced.  You have some of the same mental deficiencies he has.

That is how I remember it.  It is very close to what I typed.  I don't consider what I wrote bannable but master of the troll farm did.  At the time I figured JHK was being a little pussy and said to myself; 'Well fuck him, all right then.

Then Wednesday happened and I was overjoyed that JHK had banned me two days earlier.

 :multiplespotting: :multiplespotting: :multiplespotting: :happy1: :multiplespotting: :ernaehrung004: 

I want no connection with that right wing asshole who I once confused with a human being.  Mr. Sociopath had once pretended to care about the human future and he took a lot of people in.  Then his pendulum swung to Trump.  My involvement on his 'Clusterfuck Nation' blog became strange even before JHK admitted to kissing orange ass.  But I had trouble giving up my version of chasing cars.  I had a score to settle.  My version is messing with government trolls.



There I go again.  My fingers want to express.  Next I'll be explaining why I have my own custom made tracking globe on my website and what it has to do with Clusterfuck Nation, Peak Oil and JHK.  Stay on topic!

My involvement as I said at Clusterfuck Nation had become strange.  I had been banned a few times before for contrary opinions and JHK and I had exchanged emails.  A long and bumpy ride.  15 years.  In the context of history JHKs banning of me, considering the timing, is strange. 

I admit I deserve it.  If somebody told me my meds needed balancing I might take umbrage; but I could take the joke and I have said far worse on the blog.  RE has commented that he does not know why JHK put up with me as long as he did.  I admit I have been a bad dog and it was time to slip the collar.  But my joy at having inked divorce papers from Clusterfuck Nation.

 :multiplespotting: :multiplespotting: :multiplespotting: :happy1: :multiplespotting: :ernaehrung004: 

Made me slow to appreciate that JHK could be involved in a deep state sort of way.  JHK became a Trump mouthpiece months ago and I already know he has a finger in the deep state pie.  It fits.  Could internal disturbance have been concocted by those who only have half a loaf?  Time to dump the biggest critic on the blog then.  Only Mike Pence knows.  Someone ask his hairdresser.

The hardest part of writing off JHK completely for me....and I did that sometime back, although I sometimes still read him......was his delusional view that somehow a fucktard like Trump was going to make anything better in the world.

I was perfectly okay with his critique of the liberal platform.....but the whole "the enemy of my enemy is my friend” approach to politics is crazy.

The liberals running off the rails....is one issue. The idea that Trump was some kind of legitimate foil.....fighting the good fight.....that is bullshit.

It seems to be a mark of the people who drink the Trump Koolaid.

Trump good because Biden bad. Sorry, nah....not so.....

This has been Ashvin’s message now for months.

But it doesn’t hold water.

This is the bit I stuggle to understand. In my opinion Trump's biggest campaign promises was to make America great again and clearing the swamp. The first tagline is problematic due to its purposely vague objective but I believe most people who subscribe to MAGA use this to describe a 50's or 60's America which was the so called golden age when the American middle-class was at its strongest and most secure and social mobility was at a high point (thus the American dream seemed like the real deal then). On this metric I don't believe anything has been achieved on that end as social inequality is just as high if it not higher than it was in 2016. In addition social mobility has not improved markedly either. So where is this greatness gone or was greatness simply going to back to a time when racism/sexism was more mainstream and acceptable?

As for clearing the swamp... I think even by Trump's own admission (if you believe all the election fraud claims he makes) the Democrats are as corrupt as ever. I do not see any improvements in the Republican side either and all the powerful interest groups and lobbies retain their standing from before. Nothing has changed here so to me this is another fail. If Trump can't deliver on those two big goals that was supposed to bring the powers that be back to account then how can anyone say Trump has been an ally for the common man? If anything not only has Trump maintained the status quo but if anything he has exacerbated existing trends by purposely putting acolytes in positions of power regardless of merit. This includes senior positions in his office and the judges on the supreme court which will allow future administrations to try similar strategies in the future, not to mention to use the fraud card if elections don't go your way...

This is true, to a point.
