Leftist Nutbag Alert! Obama Regime Calls For Wooden Skyscrapers To Stop Global Warming

Obama Regime Calls For Wooden Skyscrapers To Stop Global Warming – Moonbaterry

It’s not your imagination. The anti-human envirofascist luddites who rule us really are trying to force us back to the Middle Ages in the name of their preposterous global warming hoax. Now they want us to go back to constructing buildings out of wood – even high-rise buildings:

The White House launched a new campaign to sell its global warming agenda to rural America: “sustainable” buildings, including skyscrapers, made out of wood to lower carbon dioxide emissions.

The Agriculture Department (USDA) announced it was launching a new $1 million program to promote wood as a “green” building material to boost rural economies, as well as a $1 million competition “to demonstrate the architectural and commercial viability of using sustainable wood products in high-rise construction,” according to Department.

Skyscrapers made out of wood. They are serious.

The project… combines parts of President Barack Obama’s Climate Action Plan and the administration’s push to win over rural America using green jobs. The USDA hopes to spur the use of wood technologies in industrial building projects like “tall buildings and skyscrapers, as well as other projects,” claiming that such buildings would produce be more energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions.

According to the bizarre ideology of our rulers, wooden buildings make the weather more hospitable for man-eating polar bears by “storing atmospheric carbon,” thereby preventing the global warming that so conspicuously does not exist.

These lunatics know as much about building as they do about running the health insurance industry. But they are in charge, so they will have their way.

Among the many obvious downsides of wooden skyscrapers are excessive cost, structural weakness, warping, termites, and fire hazard.

On the positive side, Muslims won’t have to hijack airliners full of people to knock them down. A fast-moving Cessna ought to do the job.

Coming soon: government-subsidized high-rises made out of dung. They will be the ultimate in sustainability, and help us to celebrate multiculturalism by embracing the Third-World techniques favored in Obama’s ancestral homeland. Uniquely among government initiatives, dung skyscrapers will actually reduce costs, because the District of Columbia can produce a nearly infinite supply of the building materials required.

Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore Says There’s No Scientific Evidence Of Man-Made Global Warming

Greenpeace Co-Founder: No Scientific Evidence Of Man-Made Global Warming – Daily Caller

There is no scientific evidence that human activity is causing the planet to warm, according to Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, who testified in front of a Senate committee on Tuesday.

.

.
Moore argued that the current argument that the burning of fossil fuels is driving global warming over the past century lacks scientific evidence. He added that the Earth is in an unusually cold period and some warming would be a good thing.

“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” according to Moore’s prepared testimony. “Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species.”

“It is important to recognize, in the face of dire predictions about a [two degrees Celsius] rise in global average temperature, that humans are a tropical species,” Moore said. “We evolved at the equator in a climate where freezing weather did not exist. The only reasons we can survive these cold climates are fire, clothing, and housing.”

“It could be said that frost and ice are the enemies of life, except for those relatively few species that have evolved to adapt to freezing temperatures during this Pleistocene Ice Age,” he added. “It is ‘extremely likely’ that a warmer temperature than today’s would be far better than a cooler one.”

Indeed, cold weather is more likely to cause death than warm weather. RealClearScience reported that from “1999 to 2010, a total of 4,563 individuals died from heat, but 7,778 individuals died from the cold.” Only in 2006 did heat-related deaths outnumber cold deaths.

In Britain, 24,000 people are projected to die this winter because they cannot afford to pay their energy bills. Roughly 4.5 million British families are facing “fuel poverty.”

“The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming,” Moore said.

“When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time,” he added. “Then an Ice Age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today.”

Moore, a Canadian, helped found the environmental activist group Greenpeace in the 1970s. He left the group after they began to take on more radical positions. He has since been a critic of radical environmentalism and heads up the group Ecosense Environmental in Vancouver, Canada.

Moore’s comments come after President Obama declared global warming a “fact” in the State of the Union. His administration has attempted to argue that the recent U.S. cold snap was influenced by a warmer planet.

Climate scientists, however, have been struggling to explain why global surface temperatures have not risen in the last 17 years and why atmospheric temperatures have been flat for the last decade.

“From 1910 to 1940 there was an increase in global average temperature of [0.5 degrees Celsius] over that 30-year period,” Moore said. “Then there was a 30-year ‘pause’ until 1970. This was followed by an increase of [0.57 degrees Celsius] during the 30-year period from 1970 to 2000. Since then there has been no increase, perhaps a slight decrease, in average global temperature.”

“This in itself tends to negate the validity of the computer models, as CO2 emissions have continued to accelerate during this time,” the former environmental activist added. “The increase in temperature between 1910-1940 was virtually identical to the increase between 1970-2000.”

“Yet the IPCC does not attribute the increase from 1910-1940 to ‘human influence.’” Moore continued. “They are clear in their belief that human emissions impact only the increase ‘since the mid-20th century.’ Why does the IPCC believe that a virtually identical increase in temperature after 1950 is caused mainly by ‘human influence,’ when it has no explanation for the nearly identical increase from 1910-1940?”

UN Climate Chief: How Do You Fight Global Warming? Why, COMMUNISM, Of Course!

UN Climate Chief: Communism Is Best To Fight Global Warming – Daily Caller

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

.

.
China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

“They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”

Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.

Communism was responsible for the deaths of about 94 million people in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century. China alone was responsible for 65 million of those deaths under communist rule.

Environmentalists often hail China as a model for fighting global warming, since they are a “leader” in renewable energy. The country set a goal of getting 15 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020. In 2012, China got 9 percent of its power from renewables – the U.S. by contrast got 11 percent in 2012.

However, the country still gets 90 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly from coal. In fact, Chinese coal demand is expected to explode as the country continues to develop. China has approved 100 million metric tons of new coal production capacity in 2013 as part of the government’s plan to bring 860 million metric tons of coal production online by 2015.

China has publicly made big efforts to clean up its environment. The country’s booming industrial apparatus has caused so much pollution that the skies have been darkened over major cities and the air quality has heavily deteriorated.

The Wall Street Journal notes that China’s air quality was so bad that about “1.2 million people died prematurely in China in 2010 as a result of air pollution” and Chinese government figures show that “lung cancer is now the leading cause of death from malignant tumors. Many of those dying are nonsmokers.”

The Soviet bloc’s environmental track record was similarly dismal.

The Communist Party’s National Action Plan spent $275 billion to combat rampant pollution through 2017, including reducing particulate matter 2.5 levels in the Beijing region by 25 percent.

The Global Warming Tipping Point Is Near (Andrew Thomas)

The Global Warming Tipping Point Is Near – Andrew Thomas

Malcolm Gladwell’s great book The Tipping Point presents the case that sudden seismic shifts in society can result from small events, if the right factors are present. Tipping points happen when momentum toward an idea builds and finally crosses a threshold where it is evident that a major cultural change has occurred. The global warming tipping point is coming, but not the one anticipated by climate change “experts.”

.

.
Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory has been dominant for the past three decades as absolute fact in the public mind. In the last several years, however, cracks in the fortress of “settled science” have appeared, and public opinion has begun to shift. Increasingly, alarmist predictions have failed to come to fruition.

In 2004, NASA’s chief scientist James Hansen authoritatively announced that there is only a ten-year window to act on AGW (presumably by transferring mass quantities of taxpayer funds to global warmist causes) before climate Armageddon destroys humanity. Well, that window has now shut tight, and AGW is AWOL.

Al Gore, the high priest of AGW theory, has closed all of his Alliance for Climate Protection field offices, and laid off 90% of his staff. Contributions have all but dried up since 2008.

Australia’s conservative government has severely curtailed the country’s climate change initiatives and is in the process of repealing its business-killing carbon tax. A group of German scientists predicts dramatic global cooling over the next 90 years toward a new “little ice age.”

Of course, even many “low information” folks have an awareness of the record increase in Arctic sea ice, as well as the current highly-publicized predicament of the cadre of wealthy global warmists stuck in record-high sea ice while on a cruise to the Antarctic to prove the absence of sea ice.

Now the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has quietly downgraded their prediction for global warming for the next 30 years in the final draft of their landmark “Fifth Assessment Report.” The effect of this is that they are tacitly admitting that the computer models they have religiously relied-upon for decades as “proof” of AGW theory are dead wrong.

The tipping point is near. I can smell it.

More Leftist Douchebaggery From The Global Warming Alarmists

The Graphic That Puts The Lie To The IPCC’s “95% Certainty” Humans Responsible For Global Warming – Independent Journal Review

.

It should be generally understood at this point that the entire point of the long-running “global warming” gag is for tiny centralized bodies of officials to gain control over industrialized economies and engage in global wealth redistribution. The damage to the quality of life for millions of people in underdeveloped economies is collateral damage, and the end of the agenda is complete control over “the environment” (that is to say, all the human beings in it).

So when the IPCC came out with their revised-down statement that they are “95% certain” that mankind is responsible for (non-existent) global warming, then we should recognize that they are no longer even saying how much global warming there is. That is to say, none, despite the surge in CO2 emissions (except for the U.S., which has been cutting per capita emissions since 2000).

It’s as if climate never changed before man was around, which is ludicrous; but nonetheless people believe it out of intellectual laziness and on the word of so-called scientific “experts,” who have become paid government employees who all of a sudden have no doubt whatsoever about the complex science of climatology – even though their computer models fail over and over again. Heck, they can’t even get the weather right, let alone the climate forecasts.

The prime directives of the environmentalists is as follows:

* Never admit false information
* Don’t ever give the long-term climate context
* Never say how you can fix the problem of climate variability
* Always blame mankind for the behavior of nature
* Claim more economic control is needed
* Demand more money to “fix” the problem

So the ultimate question is this: If politicians are willing to confabulate about the “science” of global warming, what else are they willing to lie about? Wars? Economy? Ask yourself that question as you’re turning power over you life to a bunch of unelected officials and impudent bureaucrats

If this needs to be spelled out, check out Forbes’ article about Barbara Boxer’s own climate panel contradicting her own claims and President Obama’s imperious statement, “I don’t have much patience for people who deny climate change.” Yes, climate changes – we all know that. Here is what Forbes wrote about the awkward exchange:

During yesterday’s Environment and Public Works hearings, Sen. David Vitter asked a panel of experts, including experts selected by Boxer, “Can any witnesses say they agree with Obama’s statement that warming has accelerated during the past 10 years?” [...]

After several seconds of deafening silence, global warming activist Heidi Cullen, who formerly served as a meteorologist for the Weather Channel, attempted to change the subject. Cullen said our focus should be on longer time periods rather than the 10-year period mentioned by Obama. When pressed, however, she contradicted Obama’s central assertion and said warming has slowed, not accelerated.

Fine, we’ll focus on longer than just the ten-year (actually, fifteen year) period. In addition to the graphic above, pulled from the “denier” website WattsUpWithThat?</A, there’s also the matter of the infamous “hockey stick” of Michael Mann, which erases the Medieval Warming Period in Europe and past epochs of warmer climates:

……….

It’s almost like climate “changes,” no matter what human beings do. Politicians, however, never change.

EPA admits war on coal will do squat to aid environment

Of course not, because a cleaner earth is not what the EPA is after is it?

Via Daily Caller:

The Obama administration is effectively banning the construction of new coal-fired power plants, a move officials admit will have little to no impact on global warming.

“The EPA does not anticipate that this proposed rule will result in notable CO2 emission change,” the agency writes in its proposal to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

“EPA knows there aren’t benefits,” Dan Simmons, director of regulatory and state affairs at the Institute for Energy Research, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “EPA and environmentalists are being disingenuous when they claim this rule will have an impact on the climate or the environment.”

Meet the new Marxists, same as the old Marxists

 

Leaked UN report calls BS on Global Warming Al Gore hardest hit

Oh no, what will Al do now?

Via Beltway Confidential:

Global warming alarmists, Al Gore, we need to talk.

Well, this is awkward. A leaked report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that the world is not warming but is actually cooling, and will continue to get colder until the middle of the century.

You remember the IPCC, right? It’s the group whose 2007 report on global warming said that snow would disappear from everywhere but the highest mountains, icebergs would melt causing sea levels to rise, deserts would spread, people would die in heat waves and pretty much the earth was going to end if we didn’t immediately destroy our carbon-fueled economy with job-killing government regulations.

Well, that’s not happening. In fact, the Arctic ice caps have grown by 60 percent since 2012.

About time for Gore’s cult-like followers to start screaming about us freezing to death if we do not act.

 

And you thought Al gore was nutty about Climate Change!

Meet Rep. Rush Holt, Moonbat, Leftist, Alarmist, Panic Monger, and all around moron

U.S. Senate candidate Rush Holt said his claim made Monday that “millions will die” if something isn’t done to address global warming was reality, not hyperbole.

“I think it’s no exaggeration at all to say that millions will die. And in fact there’s pretty good evidence that millions already have died because of climate change,” Holt, a congressman from central New Jersey who’s seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, said in a Star-Ledger editorial board meeting this morning.

Is it just me or are Leftists not the most unpleasant people to be around, doom, gloom, pessimism, the sky is falling, and on and on. Note that I have said before that Leftism is an , they just cannot get enough bad news.

 

Scientist To Climate Change Alarmists In Senate: Global Warming Not Causing Extreme Weather

Scientist Tells Senators: Global Warming Not Causing Extreme Weather – Daily Caller

In a Senate hearing Thursday, environmental scientist Roger Pielke of the University of Colorado said it’s “incorrect” to claim that global warming is spurring more extreme weather disasters.

.

“It is misleading and just plain incorrect to claim that disasters associated with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have increased on climate timescales either in the United States or globally,” Pielke said in his testimony before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. “It is further incorrect to associate the increasing costs of disasters with the emission of greenhouse gases.”

“Hurricanes have not increased in the U.S. in frequency, intensity or normalized damage since at least 1900,” Pielke added. “The same holds for tropical cyclones globally since at least 1970.”

Senate Democrats pointed to the increase in extreme weather events like hurricanes and tornadoes as evidence of global warming. California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer said that “climate change is real” and human activities were the cause, adding that people can “look out the window” to see evidence of it.

“Heat waves, droughts, wildfires and floods – all are now more frequent and intense,” said President Barack Obama in his State of the Union address.

Pielke, however, notes that U.S. floods have not increased in “frequency or intensity” since 1950 and economic losses from floods have dropped by 75 percent as a percentage of GDP since 1940. Tornado frequency, intensity, and normalized damages have also not increased since 1950, and Pielke even notes that there is some evidence that this has declined.

Pielke noted in his testimony that droughts have been shorter, less frequent, and have covered a smaller portion of the U.S over the last century. Globally, there has been very little change in the last 60 years, he said.

“The absolute costs of disasters will increase significantly in coming years due to greater wealth and populations in locations exposed to extremes,” Pielke added. “Consequent, disasters will continue to be an important focus of policy, irrespective of the exact future course of climate change.”

Senators sparred over predictions and claims made about man-made global warming. Democrats argued that the effects of global warming can be felt today and Republicans argued that evidence of human-induced warming is thin.

“I would note that it has not been titled ‘Global Warming: It’s Happening Now,’” said Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter. “Maybe that would have been too ironic given the Earth’s stagnant temperature for the past 15 years, a fact that is currently confounding climate scientists and modeling experts who predicted otherwise.”

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe, a longtime critic of global warming claims, pointed to a set of Obama administration talking points on the “do’s and don’ts” when talking about global warming.

The talking points suggested not leading with economic arguments, not talking about scientific consensus surrounding global warming, and instead focusing on extreme weather.

Prior to the hearing, Republicans on the committee released a report that called into question many past global warming claims made by Democrats, as well as Obama administration policy proposals.

This didn’t deter Senate Democrats who continued to argue that global warming could be seen today. Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, who caucuses with the Democrats, both pushed for taxing carbon emissions.

Republicans criticized the lack of White House testimony at the hearing.

“It is unfortunate we don’t have any witnesses here from the Obama administration,” Vitter said. “Just weeks ago, President Obama announced a sweeping climate action plan, which will undoubtedly tighten the federal government’s grip on our economy.”

“If the president is going after greenhouse gases, he won’t stop at coal,” said Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso.

Boxer, who chairs the committee, said no one from the administration was invited because they would be called in for future hearings on global warming.

Oh Good Freaking Grief! Less ice = Climate Change, and More ice = Climate Change

The latest from the Al Gore Church Cult of Climate Change Via Pirates Cove

One of the bad parts about having a heavy interest in the whole anthropogenic global warming debate, what Warmists call “climate change” in order to blame everything on Mankind, is that it is often like being in an airport full of Hari Krishna’s, Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Occupiers who just won’t stop their insanity (which might not be fair to the first two) (via Tom Nelson)

Increased Ice-Formation in Antarctic Sea Caused by Climate Change: Study

The records of melting ice in September 2012 showed that ice is disappearing at an unprecedented rate in Arctic sea. But on the other side, a record high of ice formation has been recorded in Antarctic sea.

After such results, scientists want to know that if nature is playing an equivalent game negating all the speculations that global warming is due to human intervention.

And the recent studies done in this regard shows that the answer to this speculation is `no’ and suggests that human activities are mainly responsible for the change in weather throughout the globe which includes lessening of ice in one ocean and thickening in other. The records of the ice formation on Antarctic sea reveals that the summer melt of land ice on Antarctic Peninsula have increased 10 times in last 600 years which is highest level in last 1000 years.

In related news, there were thunderstorms here tonight. Apparently, thunderstorms have NEVER EVER occurred before and right wing bloggers or “climate change deniers” if you prefer, are to blame. Yes, that is sarcasm, and no it is not too far removed from the BS the Left spews.

 

What wretched beasts Democrats are

Here they come folks, the tragedy pimps, using the Oklahoma tornado to push their global warming BS. As Limbaugh said on his show today, global warming, or climate change, is not at all about science, it is all about politics. And to moral retards like Barbara Boxer, all is fair in politics

Via Daily Caller:

California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer blamed the tornado that devastated Oklahoma on global warming during a Senate floor speech Tuesday, using the opportunity to push her own plan to tax carbon dioxide emissions.

“This is climate change,” Boxer said. “This is climate change. We were warned about extreme weather: Not just hot weather, but extreme weather. When I had my hearings, when I had the gavel years ago — it’s been a while — the scientists all agreed that what we’d start to see was extreme weather.”

Of course, wild fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes are not new, they have been happening for a long long time, but, I guess these cretins will say anything as long as they can raise more revenue.

“Carbon could cost us the planet,” Boxer added, plugging her own carbon tax bill, co-sponsored by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The least we could do is put a little charge on it so people move to clean energy.”

See! Tornadoes will be sweeter and kinder if we all pay more for “clean energy”. Horse shit!

Speaking of great piles of feces, David Sirota is blaming the GOP for the tornado

Via Salon:

With GOP-backed cuts to forecasting agency, experts warn future storms will go undetected and more lives lost.

Was the severe weather system culminating in yesterday’s Oklahoma City tornado intensified – or even created – by climate change? That question will almost certainly bebatted back and forth in the media over the next few days. After all, there is plenty of scientific evidence that climate change intensifies weather in general, but there remainlegitimate questions about how – and even if – it intensifies tornadoes in specific.

One thing, however, that shouldn’t be up for debate is whether or not we should be as prepared as possible for inevitable weather events like tornadoes. We obviously should be – but there’s an increasing chance that we will not be thanks to the manufactured crisis known as sequestration.

As the Federal Times recently reported, sequestration includes an 8.2 percent cut to the National Weather Service. According to the organization representing weather service employees, that means there is “no way for the agency to maintain around-the-clock operations at its 122 forecasting offices” and also means “people are going to be overworked, they’re going to be tired, they’re going to miss warnings.”

Summarizing the problem, the American Institute of Physics put it bluntly: “The government runs the risk of significantly increasing forecast error and, the government’s ability to warn Americans across the country about high impact weather events, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, will be compromised.”

See, it is all fair game for playing politics. EVERYTHING is to be blamed on your political opposites. No wonder ass hats like Sirota are always so nasty.

Batshit Crazy Congresswoman: Global Warming ‘Will Destroy’ Maryland

Congresswoman: Global Warming ‘Will Destroy’ Maryland – CNS

A group of House Democrats labeling themselves the Safe Climate Caucus held a press conference today to warn that if Congress does not address global warming, the country could face dire consequences, including detrimental effects to California wines and an end to Vermont skiing.

One Democratic representative even worried that global warming could destroy the state of Maryland.

“If we do nothing about what is happening, it will destroy our economy, it will destroy our state, and it will have a broad impact not just here in this country but around the world,” Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said at a press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday.

Representative Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) feared that global warming could damage the ancient forests and vineyards in his district.

“Climate change is going to impact my coastal district not just in terms of coastal communities and infrastructure but also the health of our oceans and coastal fisheries,” Huffman said.

“It will impact the great ancient forests in my district [and] it will even threaten to impact the world-class quality of the wine produced in Sonoma and Mendocino counties,” he said.

Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) worried there might not be any skiing in Vermont and that the state’s famous maple trees could also be threatened by global warming.

In introducing Vermont Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), Blumenauer said Welch “comes from the state of Vermont that climate change is going to have – there will no longer be skiing and even the maple trees will be threatened.”

Despite the dramatic claims, Rep. Edwards insisted that she and her colleagues were not alarmists.

“The fact is that those of us who are here are not alarmists, we are not eco-hystericals, we’re not socialists,” she said. “We care about our climate and we want to do something about it.”

Guess what is to blame for Frankenstorm?

No, not George W. Bush, no not the Republican Congress, not even the awful uniforms the Oregon Ducks play in. No, it is global warming, er climate change of course!

As if on cue, folks have come forward to claim that Hurricane Sandy, and the resulting Frankenstorm, are the result of “Climate Change.”  This completely  factual fictitious phenomena, of course, is the fault of humans, and, in particular, ones that live in western countries that have a capitalistic system.  So, it should not be a surprise when the story came from the completely unbiased NPR (National Progressive Radio).  So, let’s take a look at at least one comment from from midst of the blah-blah…

This is not to say progress isn’t being made. One thing that does seem clear is that warmer oceans (a la global warming) mean more evaporation, and that likely leads to storms with more and more dangerous rainfall of the kind we saw with Hurricane Irene last year. In addition, a paper published just last month, used records of storm surges going back to 1923 as a measure of hurricane activity. A strong correlation between warm years and strong hurricanes was seen. Thus if you warm the planet, you can expect more dangerous storms.

Shall we shred this?

1.  ”a la Global Warming?”  You mean the “Global Warming” that stopped in 1998?  For those of you that hadn’t read about it; the British (very quietly) released a report based on thousands of information sources.  That report showed that global temperatures had not risen since 1998!

2.  If you also recall, right after Katrina, we we told by the bestscientists political hacks available, we were going to get slammed with many more STRONGER hurricanes that were going to hit the continental US.  But, all out intrepid author has to cite were two CATEGORY ONE storms?  I mean, if warm water powers hurricanes, why weren’t Irene and Sandy category five MONSTERS?

Well, you get the idea.  But, no matter what the facts are, the claims of AGW, and now “Climate Change” will go on and on.

Bravo! Matt shreds it well. To add a bit more let me point out what has been blamed on climate change

Hot weather

Cold weather

Tornadoes

Forest fires

Flooding due to heavy rains

Drought caused by too little rain

Hurricanes

More hurricanes, unless there are ever fewer hurricanes, then that will be the fault of climate change too

Famine

Obesity

The piss poor officiating in SEC football games

Those awful uniforms the Oregon Ducks wear

OK those last two I made up, I was testing you

Anything else you want to blame if you are Left of center reality, or if you actually like those Oregon Duck uniforms

To be pefectly fair I do like some of the Oregon Duck uniforms

Not THESE Oregon Duck uniforms mind you

I DO like these uniforms though

I should have been a mascot!

Out: climate change. In: dirty weather

Old Al Gore is preaching a new sermon to his flock at The Gore Cult of Global Warming Climate Change Dirty Weather. William Teach exposes Gore’s latest load of BS!

(Al Gore’s (big energy sucking) Journal) We are in the midst of a tremendously hot summer. Between crops withering across the Midwest, fires in Colorado, and severe heat waves sweeping the entire country, a lot of people are saying out loud, “I’m too hot!”

Climate Reality has been working to raise awareness of the climate crisis, its links to the massive pollution from dirty energy, and the“dirty weather” it creates. Starting this week in Austin, TX, the Climate Reality “I’m Too Hot” ice cream truck will be distributing sweet treats to folks across the city to raise awareness of the reality of climate change. Learn more and make sure to visit them this week in Texas.

Hmm, I’m assuming the ice cream truck is a fossil fueled on, since if it was powered by something else, they would be trumpeting it. Furthermore, doesn’t ice cream make people fat? And aren’t fat people bad for globull warming?

Good Freaking Grief! Gore is just looking for a new cash cow here. And he will use the money he scams people out of to increase the size of his own Sasquatch-sized carbon footprint 

 

Heartache for Gorezilla Antacrtic ice shelves not melting after all

Wait, I thought the science was settled.

Twenty-year-old models which have suggested serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and found to be wrong, so much so that it now appears that no ice is being lost at all.

“Previous ocean models … have predicted temperatures and melt rates that are too high, suggesting a significant mass loss in this region that is actually not taking place,” says Tore Hattermann of the Norwegian Polar Institute, member of a team which has obtained two years’ worth of direct measurements below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctica – the first ever to be taken.

That is the thing about science, sometimes scientists are wrong

According to a statement from the American Geophysical Union, announcing the new research:

It turns out that past studies, which were based on computer models without any direct data for comparison or guidance, overestimate the water temperatures and extent of melting beneath the Fimbul Ice Shelf. This has led to the misconception, Hattermann said, that the ice shelf is losing mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass, leading to an overall loss of mass.

The team’s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted …
