CBC lies about global warming causing volcanoes to erupt (in Canada...)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on the CBC falsely claiming that global warming will cause Canadian volcanoes to erupt.

Canada's volcanoes are very small and located far from populated areas, so the threat their eruptions pose is negligible.

CBC even interviewed a scientist who admitted that CBC's claim is merely a theory being debated by graduate students.

By the way I posted . Who allows you nuts to post this unverified garbage to go to the public as true . Still no names .

Also note key feature of this troll’s MO – note below how “Andrew” tries to claim that I have posted “Who allows you nuts to post this unverified garbage to go to the public as true ?” then proceeds to answer that alleged quote. That is his standard MO since day one, that quote was not posted by me yet the troll claims it was me, he does this over and over in his replies under his various monikers whenever possible.

From another article, the troll has admitted yet again though denies on this thread, several monikers on the go currently as of latest count.

… They do block my email. I have to set up new email accounts to be able rejoin. Every single time you see me use a new name, it’s because The Rebel have banned me. It’s laughable that you think I change names to try to fool people, when I post in the exact same style, say the same exact things and use the same colorful words that offend you. Not to mention the fact that I also go back and use some of the same names that I have used before. … "

Hey Andrew, will you admit you are also Jay Kelly?

Jimmy et al is a keyboard thug, Andrew, you have tag-teamed with him a few times…why did you align yourself with a foul mouthed bigot???

Andrew free speech only works when the left uses it but not when the right uses it . The arrest of Tommy proves this . What is a democracy trying to hide .
The only group left is the younger generation that you can brain wash . That’s why the left wants to lower the voting age . But that will open a can of worms for the left . For they will want the age for pot any anything else lowered . And why not if you think they are mature enough to vote .
Tammie she sure showed her hand this time .

You can say whatever you like. It’s called “free speech”. The onus is on the individual to read the idea and determine its merit – and even if it’s a bad idea, if it provokes thought it’s not a waste of time to discuss it. No, not everything that you hear must be absolute total truth – and assuming it is is what gets people into trouble. I realize the “need to be told how to think crowd” has trouble with it – these are the ones who post youtube videos or blocks of someone elses’ text instead of writing their own arguments – but in practice, it’s good for both creativity and critical thinking to be exposed to diverse ideas.

Andrew that you believe that a ice capped mountain can prevent a volcanic eruption . Who in the hell came up with such bs . Who allows you nuts to post this unverified garbage to go to the public as true ?

Andrew so i can make up any wild theory and it is to be considered true until disproven like this one? I am going to remind you of this in the future. "
It’s not true (or false) nor a “theory” until you have substantial supporting evidence, enough that you can convince a skeptical audience that your idea has some merit. But yes, you can posit pretty much any hypothesis you want. The hard part is convincing other people that your hypothesis is correct.

ANDREW, if the melting of the ice in North America caused the volcanos to erupt then is an ice age the accepted ideal climate?

Another question: If the melting of the ice cap caused the volcanos to erupt then what caused them to stop? The pressure that was underground is still there but very few volcanos in spite of the current lack of ice caps holding them in check."
If it’s an influence, it’s probably a subtle one, nobody has claimed a definitive causal link- it’s being argued in terms of possiblye influences on potential risk, which is hard to quantify and certainly not “climate change causing volcanism”. The argument is that it could be an influence. Don’t argue against your own misunderstanding. (The actual primary focus of the CBC article is rock-slides caused when glacial melts destabilize slopes, something based in actual observation)

“Finally the problem is that he CBC was proclaiming this hypothesis as a fact. Thats the problem. You said yourself that it cannot be proven so why does the CBC talk about it as though it is? "

What specific part of the article proclaimed the volcanism argument as fact? Talking about the existence of hypothesis does not endorse it as “fact”. The only real proclaimed fact in the CBC piece is the observation that receeding glaciers destabilize mountain bedrock, supported by the observation that melting and receding glaciers have caused landslides.

Hysterically funny!! The closer we get to the general public understanding what a complete lie ‘Man Made Global Warming’ actually is, the more off the wall and shrill the warmists become. Leave it to the big thinkers at the CBC, who, clearly, are all in bed with ‘M.M.G.W’ to publish something even more hyperbolically stupid as this. One wonders how, in light of this and so many other crazy claims made by desperate warmists, anyone who cares a whit about his reputation can possibly allow their names to be associated with this utter nonsense?

Andrew by the way since you pro abortion crowd says only women can have a say then you also can only have a say in parenting and schooling if you have kids, DO YOU? If not then your opinion does not matter according to progressive rules.

Andrew there is more likely to be another terror attack than an eruption but you say we are ignorant for worrying about that.
commented 2018-05-26 04:02:52 -0400
Andrew science says it has nothing to do with it. The onus of proof is on the CBC to back up their BS , not the other way around.
commented 2018-05-26 04:01:40 -0400
Andrew 100 km is not close proximity and mud flows are hardly a huge disaster when they take that long to reach a location. SO WRONG AGAIN!
And yeah the risk is NEGLIGIBLE! An airport shutdown for a short time is not a big deal. Your pathetic wordplay does not change the meaning of Negligible.

I bet the next phase of the scientific bullshit money grab scam is to declare man made global warming climate change will trigger global cooling. How else are they going to explain a cooling period? These professional liars can only blame cow farts so many times before they need to invent another excuse to steal your money.

So Stephenson now has a phd in volcanology/geology as well. Just how many phds does that make now, twenty, thirty? Such a troll. "

Scientific principle is the same in all fields. Hypotheses cannot be “lies”.

“Drew Wakariuk commented 43 mins ago
Andrew Stephenson they are not large please tell us what large populations they are close to? And Gobull Waming has nothing to do with them erupting. "

Um, Vancouver? Most of Metro Vancouver is less than 100km from either volcano. Baker’s clearly visible from most of the region and a lot of the lowlands in and around Vancouver and nearby cities would be susceptible to mudflows.

You can’t say conclusively that it doesn’t.

Andrew your example is that of NEGLIGIBLE impact. Did you miss that word in the story above? "

I didn’t miss it. It’s wrong. Neither the risk of it happening, nor the economic consequences, are negligible. Risk is small but not trivial, and consequence could range from minor to catastrophic. Even a small eruption would probably shut down Vancouver’s airport for the duration, something of non-trivial consequence.
