What If the Jerry Won World War II? Fictional & Historical Scenarios

What if Hitler and the Nazis had won World War II? This is perhaps the greatest historical ‘what if’ of all time. The map above shows just how close they came.

This has led both novelists and historians to speculate about might have happened if Germany had won the war and how they might have done so. Below we’ll look at a few fictional scenarios (with maps) where they do win and what that means for the rest of the world. This will be followed by some historical speculation about whether or not Germany really could have won.

Ultimately, it was only Hitler’s dual blunders of first invading the Soviet Union and then declaring war on the United States that led to his downfall.

Face of the day

Three doctors who certified a woman as autistic so that she could die by euthanasia are set to go on trial in Belgium.

The sisters of Tine Nys told investigators that her suffering was caused instead by a broken heart after a failed relationship, and that she had falsely claimed to be autistic to two doctors and a psychiatrist.

She had told them her suffering was “unbearable and incurable” so that she could qualify for euthanasia under Belgian law, the Daily Mail reports.

Nys was given a lethal injection in April 2010, just two months after her diagnosis of autism, and died aged 38. Her sisters and her parents were at her bedside.
Campaigners in the UK say the case highlights the dangers of introducing euthanasia here.

Nys’s family claims that the law was broken because she was never treated for autism and so it had not been established that she was suffering unbearably and incurably – the key criteria for a mercy killing to go ahead.

The three doctors have been charged with failing to comply with the legal conditions for euthanasia and poisoning. If found guilty they are almost certain to face jail.

The criminal case in Ghent is the first since euthanasia was decriminalised in Belgium in 2002.[…]

We are being softened up

Science News

I have lost count of the number of times I have read articles from the department of “Settled Science” that had words to the effect that “current climate models do not include the effects of (insert newly discovered process here)”

It baffles me how it is possible to come up with new terrestrial processes or cycles or phenomena which have hitherto been excluded from the climate models when we have been told with utter certainly and utmost sincerity exactly what the models predict will happen if we dare tip over some magical increment in temperature above some mythical perfect period in the past.

But there is another paper coming that does just that.  Eureaka alert has the story:

As the Antarctic ice sheet melts, warming of the atmosphere will be delayed by about a decade but sea level rise will accelerate, according to new research scheduled for advance online publication in the journal Nature. end quote.

They are craftily already building the narrative to explain why, when CO2 keeps increasing, the temperature has not followed the soaring trajectory predicted by the models. quote.

Frozen turtles killed by global warming

So, it is not the plastic bags, or the plastic straws (turtle snorkels) killing the turtles, it is simply weather delivering a sudden cold snap that is catching them out and basically freezing the poor critters.  This from ABC. Quote.

In just one morning, dozens of “frozen solid” sea turtles were discovered washed up on beaches in the north of the United States, with wildlife volunteers saying most were beyond saving.

More than 80 turtles were found on the shores of multiple beaches in the Cape Cod region of Massachusetts on Thursday.

Most of the turtles were dead, Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary communications coordinator Jenette Kerr told the Cape Cod Times.

We are at well over 400 cold-stunned turtles [this year] — 82 today, the vast majority of them frozen solid,” Ms Kerr said on Thursday.
