(And I will comment)
A couple days ago, President Obama went to Georgetown University to give a speech about his energy policy. And no liberal would talk about an energy policy without invoking the church of climatology.
Church is correct! 40 years ago they were lamenting the coming ice age!!! Then Al Gore in cahoots with deliberate liars at the CRU and IPCC used faked charts and fudged numbers to assert that we were entering and age of high heat and the sea levels would rise and mankind was in danger and the sky is falling and...wait...several years later and still no New York City underwater? Still no big sea rise? Still no real overall change in the climate? Well, Al did get a Nobel Prize and has a house bigger than some small towns. So there is that...who knew a hockey stick would be associated with liars rather than BLACKHAWKS?
In his speech, Obama lamented the existence of “climate deniers,” comparing them to flat-Earthers. “We don't have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society," he said. "Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it's not going to protect you from the coming storm."
The idea that there was a time when Christians and other “uneducated” people believed that the Earth was flat is a complete myth. That myth was promulgated largely by Darwinists in the latter part of the 19th century as a way to discredit Creationists. There wasn’t ever a time when the consensus among Christians was that the Earth was flat. This lie was perpetuated to show that Christians held to their “religious dogma” in spite of evidence discovered by “brave” and “objective” scientists who were persecuted by Christians for their discovery. So in reality, opponents of Columbus’s voyage didn’t actually say that they were concerned he might fall off the edge of the Earth. Their concern was mostly about how far he would be going in unknown territory and how much it would cost to finance such an expedition.
Mankind knew the Earth was round. The Bible says it is round. Maps from before the time of Christ had Antarctica on them! One Greek computed the circumference of the globe very accurately long before the Dark Ages, which were brought on by a solid establishment of people who did not want to consider real science and dug in their heels about any new ideas. It was Christians who did good science, established all the major scientific disciplines and convinced the nobles and rulers that the Earth (they KNEW it was round) revolved around the Sun and not the other way around. There was NEVER a group of scientists or philosophers who went around claiming a flat Earth was the way it is.
What we do see throughout history is that the establishment of any particular field of study, whether it be science or medicine, is usually the group that holds fast to its theories in spite of new evidence and findings that might show the establishment to be in error. They hold on to their theories for political and financial reasons. They use their own clout to silence and/or ridicule those that threaten the status quo that they’ve created for themselves.
So we have Darwinists and Climate Alarmists. Both of these groups (and they intermingle) deny evidence to hold onto an hypothesis that is unscientific and supported by lies.
And that’s just what the whole anthropogenic global warming myth is all about. They want to maintain their theories so they can benefit politically and financially from them. They can twist the scientific data to make it say whatever they want. And any scientist who tries to expose them for trying to cram inflated data inside a pre-formulated theory is ignored or discredited. We all know how an establishment treats whistleblowers.
Like the Michael Mann hockey stick graph? Yep. Any sensible climatologist knows that CO2 is plant food, it is too small a percentage of the atmosphere to do anything to the temperature and actually the more we have, the better plants grow! Oh, and their definition of "greenhouse gases" means the ocean is the biggest culprit! Are they going to fine the ocean?
Arctic ice is at a high point for last ten years...imagine that?
In the same energy policy speech, Obama claimed that the 12 warmest years in recorded history all occurred in the past 15 years, and that this warming is contributing to an increase in severity and frequency of storms.
That is just BS. People have deliberately changed weather stations in North America to artificially give high readings...but still many of the warmest temperatures were actually in the days of the Great Depression. Obama is wrong about his data.
And what’s contributing to all this warming? A rise in carbon emissions. Apparently there have been about 400 billion metric tons of carbon emissions permeating the atmosphere because of human activity over the past 15 years.
Bring it on!!! Carbon in the air feeds plants. Duh!
But German climate scientist Hans von Storch showed that despite these record carbon emissions, the global temperature has risen just .06 degrees Celsius (.11 degrees Fahrenheit), “a value very close to zero,” as Storch said. So, why aren’t we facing record temperature increases to go along with the record carbon emissions? Storch said he doesn’t know:
In other words, he believes that humans are contributing to global warming, but he sees that the evidence isn’t consistent with that belief. He doesn’t know why the evidence isn’t there, but since he knows that anthropogenic global warming is real, there must be some explanation that he hasn’t found yet. He’s assuming the very thing he’s trying to prove. And that’s just what the global warming alarmists like Obama do. They take their view on faith in spite of evidence that contradicts their belief system. And they’ll use their clout to discredit any scientist who threatens the status quo. Obama et al. benefit politically and financially from the pseudoscientific/religious dogma of the church of climatology.
The alarmists were actually hoping to set up carbon exchanges and make big money. Al Gore was one of the bigger investors. It was always a plan to make money for elitists in the know and hold down the development of Third World nations. The UN and the green-nuts and the Al Gores of this world do NOT want the mostly non-white Third World nations developing their nations, they want them simple and uncivilized and easy to exploit. They want to keep getting the natural resources from these countries on the cheap. The Alarmists are a mixture of greedy money-hungry tyrants and so-called Progressives who want to keep Africa and South America primitive as long as possible.
Just who exactly are the “flat-Earthers?”
The same guys who cannot yet tell you for sure if it will rain in Chicago two weeks from now. The same guys who lied about temperatures to scare people into kowtowing to idiocy. The same people who apparently feed Obama what to say, because I doubt Barack Obama knows much of anything about climate at all. He does know how to divide and conquer. That is all he has done since taking office. He tries to wreck the economy, make the central government more powerful and to cause hate a distrust between various groups in the USA. He wants people of one color to hate people of another. He wants class distinctions and mistrust between them. He wants to be subject to Islamic Law and shred the Constitution. He ignores habeas corpus and takes warlike actions without any notice to Congress at all. He fills the judiciary with liberal loonbats. He wants homosexuals and heterosexuals to be at war. He wants the young to resent the old and the old to mistrust the young. He is doing exactly what a guy with a funny mustache did in the 1930's in Germany with the exception that Hitler tried to cause the economy to boom while Obama tries to kill it.
Tad Cronn says:
"It’s tantamount to kicking the ladder out from beneath the feet of many Americans struggling in today’s economy," Sen. Mitch McConnell said about President Obama's announcement of his strategy for fighting the phantom menace of global warming on Tuesday.
Obama announced his plan to regulate power plant emissions, vehicles, buildings and appliances while funneling more taxpayer money into "green" power projects. He also called for an international agreement on greenhouse gas emissions.
"I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that is beyond fixing," Obama said to an audience of college students at Georgetown University. "As a president, as a father and as an American I’m here to say we need to act."
He has already condemned them to a future of massive and incredible debt from his ludicrous spending!!! Look at the top left of my blog for the debt clock spinning away!
Act like a bunch of Chicken Littles afraid the sky is falling.
Scientists who aren't on a government payroll have pointed out that there has been no warming for 16 years. Even government scientists have had to do verbal gymnastics to maintain the global warming story.
In early January of this year, climate mongers were ecstatic at an announcement by NASA that 2012 had been the ninth warmest year on record. But buried in that report was this quote: "The five-year mean global temperature has been flat for the last decade, which we interpret as a combination of natural variability and a slow down in the growth rate of net climate forcing."
What it really means is with no CRU and IPCC lies and with satellites taking temperatures from on high and deep-diving drones checking temperatures in the oceans, they cannot fake the fraudulent idea of rising temperatures any longer!
In February, the U.N.'s chief of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, admitted that, whoops, there's actually been no warming for 17 years, the same length of time as the previous warming period that got everyone worked up about global warming in the first place. Pachauri tried to cover by saying it would take 30 years of no warming to prove the "crisis" was past.
Some scientists who've looked at the satellite data say the flat temperature period has been more like 23 years.
Imagine that? Looking at the EVIDENCE instead of listening to Al Gore?
The NOAA's State of the Climate report in 2008 said that a period of 15 or more years without warming would be enough to prove a discrepancy between climate predictions and reality. But the Chicken Littles keep trying.
Flat is flat. In his speech Tuesday, Obama mocked those who are skeptical about global warming, saying, "We don't have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society."
Funny thing, the real Flat Earth Society BELIEVES in global warming...and a flat Earth. I guess the IQ level at Flat Earth HQ and the White House is equivalent?
Says the PRESIDENT of the Flat Earth Society and the Campaign Every Day Society and the Spend Other People's Money Society!
But a meeting of the Flat Temperature Society might be in order so that the carnival barkers of climate change can at least come up with a rationalization for how flat temperatures equal global warming.
Don't hold your breath, though, because the global warming agenda has always been promoted through mass hysteria rather than verifiable data. Just ask all those "endangered" polar bears that aren't drowning.
Polar Bear populations are growing or stable. You think Polar Bears hate warm weather? Then why do they hibernate in the coldest part of the winter? Hmmmmm?
Every report is accompanied by tales of increasing "extreme" weather, even in years that are relatively free of the usual natural disasters. Global temperatures going back more than a century are deemed reliable despite no consistent standard being enforced for taking measurements and some of the most appalling physical and social conditions existing at weather stations across the globe over the past 100 years and even still today.
"The planet is warming," Obama said. "Human activity is contributing to it. We know that the costs of these events can be measured in lost lives and lost livelihoods."
Lies! When the climate does get a bit warmer, it is better for crops. If carbon emissions rise, plant food is freely available. When the climate warmed in the Medieval Warming Period, it was a time of plenty for all as crops grew farther North and harvests were better. It is colder climates that endanger food supplies and people!
Against the specter of planetary disaster, Obama offers an economic catastrophe. Lost lives and livelihoods will be the result as his plan, which does not require congressional approval. As power plants cut back production or close, there will be less power for people suffering from cold or hot weather. As costlier electricity raises prices of just about everything, more people will lose their jobs and be forced to go on the government rolls just to survive.
Obama wants to save the world from the imaginary climate beast, even if he has to kill the American economy to do it.
No, he WANTS to kill the economy so the government can step in and take over more of it! That is what Communist/Socialist tyrants do. I predicted what Obama would do to the economy before he was ever elected. He is doing exactly as I both predicted and feared - grown government, stopped as much energy production as possible, rewarded cronies, undermined the normative morality and supported every evil agenda the radical greenies and omnisexuals push out...while living like a king.
Meanwhile, a report from across the Pond:
Government Weather and Climate Science is a Proven Disaster.
“It occurred to me…” At what point does the thick skin required for leadership become completely insensitive?"
Barack Obama’s draconian plan to stop climate change is based on the certainty of forecasts of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) under the control of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). It is parroted by all national weather agencies as WMO members. This, despite the exposed corruption, manipulated science, and failed predictions (projections).
A few weeks before Obama’s announcement, on March 18 in Exeter, England, another WMO member, the United Kingdom Meteorological Office (UKMO), held a meeting to discuss the unusual weather and try and understand the...
“disappointing UK weather over recent years.”
In fact, the need for the meeting and the programme indicates how little they know about weather and climate. What is really disappointing for them is the complete failure of their forecasting. They need an excuse for failure, but in doing so expose their incompetence.
Their total failure over decades could only happen in government or government sponsored industry. In the natural world, that advocates of more government generally favor, elimination would have occurred. Typical of government, failures and redundancies are perpetuated as people preserve their jobs. Give any problem to government and they will create structures that quickly work on sustaining themselves rather than achieving resolution. Can you think of any non-government agency that could be wrong 13 out of 14 years as the UKMO was and yet maintain their jobs or business?
The title of the meeting says “unusual weather”, but it is not unusual at all in the short or long term. In a study of weather variable for 14 years at a southern UK location Neil Catto shows nothing unusual. Here are the maximum and minimum temperature records, but all the others are similar.
On a longer scale the 354 years Central England Temperature (CET) shows the slight warming and cooling trends since the nadir of the Little Ice Age, but no dramatic or unusual patterns, just natural variability.
It also shows the Sunspot Cycle 24 and 25 predictions that correlate with previous cool periods and anticipated cooling in the immediate future. Indeed, the cooling since 1998 is part of that trend an expected to continue. The change in trend caused a change in terminology from Global Warming to Climate Change, a practice enjoined by the UKMO.
Failure to include just this solar relationship alone in their models is one reason the IPCC and national models fail. Another is they assume an increase in CO2 causes a temperature increase when the opposite occurs in every single record we have. Further evidence of their failure is the success of Piers Corbyn’s forecasts such that it was proposed in Parliament they close the weather office and contract his services. Ironically, a former employee of the UK weather office Hubert Lamb left that agency to set up the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia because he could not get support for his attempt to improve forecasting by understanding past weather patterns. He explained in his autobiography,
There is an old comment that, “the unusual weather is more unusual than usual.”
It is implied in the reason for the UKMO meeting and further evidence of their ignorance of weather and climate. If you disagree, consider the level of inaccuracy of their forecasts. In fact, the pattern of weather is perfectly normal and well within natural variability. The mechanism is also reasonably well understood and has been in the literature for at least 50 years.
The boundary between the cold polar air and the warm tropical air is called the Polar Front. It is a very distinct temperature boundary traditionally measured by the Zonal Index – the temperature difference between two latitudes. This difference translate to pressure difference, which determines wind speed. As a result a very strong wind, technically called the Circumpolar Vortex, but more commonly called the Jet Stream blows. This wind was discovered in the 1940s and wave patterns in the wind delineated by Carl Rossby in 1946. Rossby Waves are sinuous waves that vary between Zonal and Meridional.
Each creates very different weather patterns including wind direction, temperature fluctuations, precipitation events and intensity. The most extreme in terms of variability occur with Meridional Flow and that is precisely what has occurred in the last few years. Increased Meridional Flow accompanies a cooling trend as the historic record shows and the current weather patterns demonstrate.
Hubert Lamb, among other things, was studying the change in cyclonic patterns as they influenced the UK weather pattern. His work is well documented in his many articles and his amazing two volume set of Climate, Past, Present and Future published in 1977. He understood what was happening, but because of the unholy alliance to pursue a political agenda between the UKMO and the CRU, was ignored. It is time to close the weather office as they, like all government weather offices, have proved are political, unaccountable and scientifically wrong.
It is time to close the books on so-called Anthropic (Man-Made) Global Warming!
- Man does not cause warming. Carbon emissions are plant food, for pete's sake!
- It isn't warming anyway. The temperatures have been stable for about 23 years.
- If it was warming, we could not stop it.
- If it does begin to warm, it will then begin to cool again. It always does.
- The only way to control the weather is to control the Sun. I do not think anyone on the globe is qualified for the job!!! Certainly not Barack Obama!
