NYU Prof: Fight climate change with hormone treatments on small children, ‘closes the growth plates’

Published on Oct 5, 2015

Interviewed on the Sunrise Weekend morning show, NYU Professor Matthew Liao promotes hormone treatments on children ‘when their small’ to close their ‘growth plates’ and thus stunt child growth. Professor Liao says this helps fight climate change since ‘larger people consume more energy than smaller people.’

PROFESSOR MATTHEW LIAO: “There’s this technique called preimplantation genetic diagnosis. And, what you do there is you can — it’s a technique that’s used for — sort of for fertility clinics.

HOST ANDREW O”KEEFE: “Right. So, IVF treatments and things?”

LIAO: “IVF treatments and you can get rid of — you can sort of detect sort of genetic diseases. So the idea is that maybe you can use the technique like that to select smaller children.”

O’KEEFE: “Okay. So a range of potential options that you select the genetic material that is bound to lead to smaller children.”

LIAO: “That’s right. That’s right.”

O’KEEFE: “But, it requires in vitro fertilization?”

LIAO: “That’s right. So that would require in vitro fertilization. Another possibility is you can use hormone treatments. So these are — we already give hormone treatments to children who are expected to be very very tall, excessively tall.

O’KEEFE: “Oh, okay.”

LIAO: “And, so you can give them –”

O’KEEFE: “You give them the hormone treatment in utero now do we?”

LIAO: “No, you give them when they’re small. And, so it closes the growth plates.”

HOST MONIQUE WRIGHT: “With the idea that smaller people would be more — or have a smaller carbon footprint?”

O’KEEFE: “Would they consume less?”

LIAO: “That’s right. So, other things being equal larger people consume more energy than smaller people. They also, for example, it takes more energy to transport larger people. They — you need more clothes — fabrics to clothes larger people rather than smaller people. They wear out shoes, carpets, et cetera, et cetera more than smaller people. So think of the life time carbon footprints. That’s quite a lot.”

Climate Change is altering the shape of the Planet (blame your car)

Climate Change is altering the shape of the Planet (blame your car)

It’s taken five years to figure it out, but apparently climate change is even worse than the last time we thought it was worse. Who knew? Once upon a time, glaciers were at a constant perfect position. Life was paradise on Earth and all the animals were happy. But then mankind built that first planet-destroying coal powered station in 1880 and now mountains are being moved, the Earth is changing. Or at least, that’s sort of what the press release implies. What this tale is really about is the way the media hyperbole is just another excuse to repeat The Climate Mantra even if has nothing much to do with what the paper. What were those observations again? If Nature, the formerly esteemed journal, was half what it used to be, it would have helped young Michele Koppes keep a longer term perspective, and not lace the press release with baseless speculation. Probably she’s seen a few too many Greenpeace-BBC specials and thinks Antarctica is warming (when the satellites show it isn’t). And curiously, the part that is warming happens to be right over the edges of the tectonic plates where the volcanoes are. She might think climate models work […]Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)

Hurricane Joaquin? Blame It On Climate Change! Claims Debunked

Hurricane Joaquin? Blame It On Climate Change!

By Paul Homewood Another cretinous report from the Daily Beast. It would be difficult for them to have got more wrong: As Hurricane Joaquin devastates the Bahamas and feints toward the east coast of the United States, and as American communities hunker down for superstorm potential, the connection to climate change is already clear. What’s more, a new study shows there’s a lot more of this sort of thing to come. Already, Joaquin is being compared in advance to Superstorm Sandy, which devastated so much of the Atlantic shore, including New York City, only three years ago. Such frightening anticipation may—or may not—turn out to be justified in this case. Chances are growing that Joaquin will swing north and out to sea, but predictions keep changing and hurricanes don’t always cooperate with prognosticators. Taking every precaution to prepare for heavy rainfall and flooding, the governors of Virginia and New Jersey declared a state of emergency on Thursday as the approaching storm’s winds are topping 125 miles per hour. On Friday, rains from a combination of systems, including Joaquin, were flooding the Carolinas and forcing evacuations. What’s all this about? The simple answer is “temperature.” Hurricanes love warm water and the sea surface temperatures in Joaquin’s path are the warmest ever on record. Thank humans for that. Last year broke all records for the hottest year and highest emissions in modern history. That’s our doing. Now 2015 is already bound to best last year’s record. Sea surface temperatures are merely reflecting this trend, expanding the five oceans as they absorb more heat from the atmosphere. To date, sea levels have risen roughly four feet over the past several centuries, which makes for even more ferocious storm surges when they land on shore. (And the seas aren’t stopping; they keep rising.) But warmer air, of which we now have plenty, also loves water, holding more and more moisture as we heat up the planet. Couple this trend with melting ice sheets and glaciers and you see that hurricanes, such as Joaquin, have no shortage of precipitation. By now, in the United States, this trend shouldn’t surprise anyone. Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy should’ve sufficiently educated everyone on extreme weather trends. What people may not have realized, however, is that the “extreme” will be getting more “normal”—that is, more frequent—and that is a terrifying prospect. …
