Pres. Biden’s Global Warming Solution: The Iran Nuclear Deal

Post by solutions »

.

Yesterday (Sat Feb 20), I posted on our bulletin board (at viewtopic.php?f=629&t=2034&sid=db903a5e ... ac31f04c1c) an exchange of e-mails with John Karls on the subject of “Seeding The Earth’s Atmosphere To Halt Global Warming.”

Research on that topic was discussed in the third paragraph of the Postscript of the 4/5/2019 letter that we sent to each of the Democrat Presidential Candidates, which was then attached to a letter to the Moderators of the first five Democrat Presidential-Candidate Debates.

That postscript said --

********** 4/5/2019 Presidential Candidate Letter Postscript **********

“It is well known that large volcanic eruptions will throw into the atmosphere gases and dust particles whose shading of incoming solar radiation can cool the earth for months and even years.

“[This has caused some wags to remark (however, true) that Global Warming can be solved by occasional, small nuclear wars which, of course, will be much more likely if a nuclear-arms race occurs between “The World’s Greatest ‘State Sponsor of Terrorism’” (The U.S. State Department’s long-standing legally-required description of Iran) and “The Gulf Cooperation Council” (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, The United Arab Emirates, and Oman).]

“In a similar vein, there has been research on seeding the earth’s atmosphere with various substances to achieve the same effect as volcanic eruptions or small nuclear wars. Such an approach (vs., for example, merely adopting the most economical energy source which happens to have no carbon emissions) is likely, at the very least, to incur legal liability. After all, The Russian Federation refused to ratify The Kyoto Protocol for many years because Global Warming would increase Siberia’s growing season -- until the European Union finally agreed to subsidize Russia’s economic loss. [Similar economic disparities were bridged in the Paris Climate Accord by the U.S. promising to adopt uneconomic measures virtually immediately in return for the world’s other great carbon polluters’ adopting uneconomic measures in the distant future.]”

******************** End of Postscript ********************

The second paragraph of that postscript bears repeating --

“This has caused some wags to remark (however, true) that Global Warming can be solved by occasional, small nuclear wars which, of course, will be much more likely if a nuclear-arms race occurs between “The World’s Greatest ‘State Sponsor of Terrorism’” (The U.S. State Department’s long-standing legally-required description of Iran) and “The Gulf Cooperation Council” (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, The United Arab Emirates, and Oman).”

Why?

Two days ago (Thursday Feb 18) President Biden announced his intention to grovel his way back into the Iran Nuclear Deal (aka JCPOA).

On Inauguration Day (Jan 20), we sent a FedEx Overnight letter to President Biden imploring him NOT to grovel his way back into the Iran Nuclear Deal. A copy of that letter (and FedEx tracking information) is available at viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2021&sid=eafa0b3f2 ... d88329d2ec and at viewtopic.php?f=619&t=2022&sid=eafa0b3f ... d88329d2ec.

**********
Our letter listed the most glaring inadequacies of the Iran Nuclear Deal --

(1) It does NOT provide for “anytime anywhere” inspections,

(2) It does NOT impede at all Iran’s development of nuclear-capable short-range and inter-continental ballistic missiles (which are typically launched with such slogans painted on their sides as “Death to Israel” and “Death to the Big Satan” aka the United States – BTW, Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has often, even in the wake of the JCPOA, led crowds in chants of “Death to America”), and

(3) It guarantees Iran nuclear weapons by 2030.

***********
Our letter pointed out that --

“Supporters of the Iran Nuclear Deal have argued that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who was born in 1939, is likely to have departed the scene by 2030. However –

(1) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is just as rabid as his predecessor, Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who ruled Iran from 1979 when The Shah was deposed until 1989.

(2) So why should anyone think that Iran’s theocratic dictatorship -- only approved candidates are permitted to run for INFERIOR offices NOT INCLUDING “Supreme Leader” -- would produce a successor for Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who is any different from him or from his predecessor?

(3) After all, the record shows that since 1984, Iran has headed the list of the world’s “State Sponsors of Terrorism” (a list that the U.S. State Department is required to maintain under Sec. 6(j) of the Arms Export Control Act and under Sec. 620A of the Foreign Assistance Act and a list it took Iran only 5 years after the Shah was deposed to head continuously for the last 37 years).

(4) And worst of all, Iran’s behavior has grown continually worse (rather than better) in the wake of the Iran Nuclear Deal.

**********
Our letter spelled out in greater detail the point of the second paragraph (quoted above) of the Postscript of the 4/5/2019 letter to the Democrat Presidential Candidates (including Candidate Joe Biden) as follows --

(1) A nuclear Iran will immediately cause the so-called “Gulf State Six” to go nuclear!!! After all, they have no more faith in the so-called American “nuclear umbrella” than President Charles de Gaulle who pulled France out of NATO in 1966 in order to develop French nuclear weapons which the U.S. then derisively called the “Force de Frappe.”

[The “Gulf State Six” could immediately buy nuclear weapons from, say, Pakistan or North Korea, if not on the “black market” from a variety of sources.]

[As you know, the ‘Gulf State Six,” more formally known as the “Gulf Cooperation Council,” comprise Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (aka UAE), Qatar, Bahrain and Oman.]

(2) A nuclear war between Iran and the “Gulf State Six” might well constitute “Valhalla - The Twilight of The Humans” and would, at the very least, mean that –

• With the world’s prevailing winds flowing from west to east, half of the world’s population could be wiped out by nuclear radiation, and

• With half of the world’s oil supply coming from the Persian Gulf or downwind from the Persian Gulf and becoming radioactive, the world could become impoverished overnight.

***********
Conclusion

It would appear that President Biden is intent on groveling his way back into the Iran Nuclear Deal even though he is on notice that his decision will result in wiping out half of the world’s population and impoverishing the world overnight!

At least his decision will put enough particles in the world’s atmosphere that we won’t have to worry about Global Warming again for a while!
