Czech President Klaus wants AGW debate with Gore

First, it's important to note the source of this story--earthtimes.org. Their web site says:

As such www.Earthtimes.org is a leading website that publishes news reports and the latest information relating to the human environment...
To me, this means Earth Times is part of the global warming propaganda machine. You can see it in their article below, when they put climate alarmism in quotes, but list the words "global warming" without the quotes in their rather sycophantic paragraph on Gore's "accomplishments." They state Gore's global warming resume as if it's unequivocal that his awards were legit. That's what propagandists do--they shut down debate by dismissing detractors as idiots. I contend that Gore won an Oscar and Nobel Prize for NOTHING! Both awards were just cheapened even more--so congrats liberal ding-dongs!

First, I would just tell President Klaus BRAVO! He makes some terrific points below. Second, good luck getting Al Gore to debate anything. He's an incompetent nitnoid politician--not a scientist.

Czech President Klaus ready to debate Gore on climate change | earthtimes.org:

Washington - Czech President Vaclav Klaus said Tuesday he is ready to debate Al Gore about global warming, as he presented the English version of his latest book that argues environmentalism poses a threat to basic human freedoms. "I many times tried to talk to have a public exchange of views with him, and he's not too much willing to make such a conversation," Klaus said. "So I'm ready to do it."

Gore a former US vice president who has become a leading international voice in the cause against global warming, was co-winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Gore's effort was highlighted by his Oscar winning documentary film An Inconvienent Truth.

Klaus, an economist, said he opposed the "climate alarmism" perpetuated by environmentalism trying to impose their ideals, comparing it to the decades of communist rule he experienced growing up in Soviet-dominated Czechoslovakia.

"Like their (communist) predecessors, they will be certain that they have the right to sacrifice man and his freedom to make their idea reality," he said.

"In the past, it was in the name of the Marxists or of the proletariat - this time, in the name of the planet," he added.

"It could be even true that we are now at a stage where mere facts, reason and truths are powerless in the face of the global warming propaganda," he said.

Klaus alleged that the global warming was being championed by scientists and other environmentalists whose careers and funding requires selling the public on global warming.

"It is in the hands of climatologists and other related scientists who are highly motivated to look in one direction only," Klaus said.

Carbon ration cards coming to UK

Lol-3 LOL! I've tried telling you...this is socialism in environmental clothing...if there's even a difference. Capitalism must suffer to save the Earth--Bill Clinton said so himself! This is effectively a tax...it has the same effect.

If only global warming were real...but it isn't, so this is just more big-government garbage.

Every adult in Britain should be forced to carry 'carbon ration cards', say MPs | Mail Online:

Every adult should be forced to use a 'carbon ration card' when they pay for petrol, airline tickets or household energy, MPs say.

The influential Environmental Audit Committee says a personal carbon trading scheme is the best and fairest way of cutting Britain's CO2 emissions without penalising the poor.

Under the scheme, everyone would be given an annual carbon allowance to use when buying oil, gas, electricity and flights.

Animal Death-Watch: Walruses, Eels, and Penguins

LolThese are old articles that I never got around to covering. Please feel free to browse the other posts in the Animal Death Watch series. At this rate, all the animals on earth will be dead in no time. Considering everything that global warming causes, we should all be walking knee-deep in various carcasses and corpses each and every day.

Global Warming Blamed for Walrus Deaths | LiveScience:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)-In what some scientists see as another alarming consequence of global warming, thousands of Pacific walruses above the Arctic Circle were killed in stampedes earlier this year after the disappearance of sea ice caused them to crowd onto the shoreline in extraordinary numbers.
Penguins now threatened by global warming - Telegraph:

Global warming is threatening one of the most endearing symbols of Antarctica - the penguin.

Four species of penguin are facing a dual threat from loss of nesting sites and a shortage of food.

Scientists study Lake Champlain eel decline - Environment- msnbc.com:
Biologists do not fully understand the reason for the decline. Theories include climate change, pollution, and overfishing of young eels.

Another "flat earth" scientist debunks global warming stupidity

Just so you know, not everyone is marching in step like a zombie. Dr. Douglass at the University of Rochester is pointing out some "inconvenient truths," and Steven Milloy of junkscience.com made some great points about a subject that global warming alarmists hate to discuss--the sun and it's role in heating and cooling the Earth.

FOXNews.com - Study: Part of Global-Warming Model May Be Wrong:

Part of the scientific consensus on global warming may be flawed, a new study asserts.

The researchers compared predictions of 22 widely used climate "models" — elaborate schematics that try to forecast how the global weather system will behave — with actual readings gathered by surface stations, weather balloons and orbiting satellites over the past three decades.

The study, published online this week in the International Journal of Climatology, found that while most of the models predicted that the middle and upper parts of the troposphere —1 to 6 miles above the Earth's surface — would have warmed drastically over the past 30 years, actual observations showed only a little warming, especially over tropical regions.

"Can the models accurately explain the climate from the recent past? It seems that the answer is no," said lead study author David H. Douglass, a physicist specializing in climate at the University of Rochester.

FOXNews.com - It's the Sun, Stupid - Opinion:
When the international global warming alarm-ocracy gathers for its annual convention on the balmy island of Bali next week, is there any chance that the delegates will look up at the big yellow ball in the sky and ask, “Could it be the Sun, stupid?”

New research suggests that would be a great question for them to consider.

A recent study from the Journal of Geophysical Research (November 2007) reports that the sun may have contributed 50 percent or more of the global warming thought to have occurred since 1900.

Researchers from Duke University and the U.S. Army Research Office report that climate appears to be insensitive to solar variation if you accept the global temperature trend for the past 1,000 years as represented by the so-called “hockey stick” graph — which claims to show essentially unchanging temperatures between from 1000 to 1900 and then a sharp uptick from 1900 to the present. But the hockey stick-graph has been relegated to the ash heap of global warming history.

GASP!: Climate change goes after fairer sex

Add this to the list of things caused by global warming--part of the fear approach in AGW indoctrination duality. Here we see that women are truly facing demise at the hands of capitalism.

Please see our other posts in the GASP! series. Newsbusters' Noel Sheppard did a great write-up on this.

Women bear the brunt of climate change:

Bali, Indonesia: They have to walk to fetch water, fodder or fuel wood. They have to work longer hours in fields that fetch less and less. After floods and storms, they still have to put food on the plate.

Women bear the brunt of climate change every year, a global network of women's groups pointed out here.

Snowing and skiing...in LATE MAY!

Oh yeah, it’s really warm out there in late spring. Still snow...someone tell the lefties in Vermont that there’s global warming, and hurry! And it looks as if the liberal Northwest is having the same story...snow, snow, snow, with record-breaking ski seasons. Yep, global warming sure is a problem...and it’s almost June!

Oh that’s right...they’ve
revised their gloomy predictions on this past winter because of La Nina (10 more years of Pacific-driven cooling NOW expected to mask global warming...LOL!). How convenient...or inconvenient for them (depending on how one looks at it).

Mud, snow to greet Memorial Day hikers

There's nothing like a little fresh snow and lots of old mud to liven up an early summer hike.

Which is exactly what people are likely to find near the peaks of Vermont's higher mountains this Memorial Day weekend, due to the snowy winter and some fresh flurries this week.

At 5 p.m. Tuesday, 18 inches of snow remained on the ground near the top of Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak. The snow cover includes some of the 3.5 inches of fresh fluff that descended on the mountaintop Monday. More light snow is likely over northern Vermont summits today and Thursday, the National Weather Service in South Burlington said.

In Burlington, the latest spring snow flurry on record came May 31, 1945, according to National Weather Service data.

No snow will fall in the valleys this week, meteorologists said. Instead, chilly rain showers are forecast with temperatures in the low- and mid-50s. That's about 15 degrees colder than normal for this time of year.

Long range forecasts suggest this weekend will turn sunnier and warmer.

Many ski areas finish with record-breaking seasons

Ski areas throughout the Northwest had such great snow in the 2007-08 winter that neither its November absence nor its road-closing, midwinter surplus could prevent a banner year for the winter-sports industry.

Several resorts - including the Summit at Snoqualmie - set new highs in skier/snowboarder visits and others, like White Pass, had seasons that ranked among their all-time best.

Snoqualmie's total of 714,000 user visits through April 30 already was more than 100,000 higher than its previous best winter. Washington's 49 Degrees North and Oregon's Mount Hood Meadows both set all-time records for skier visits, and White Pass had one of its top five years, with about 130,600 visits.

In all, Washington ski resorts will finish with about 2.1 million visits, about 50,000 off the record winter of 2001-02.

Meanwhile, the
fruitcakes in San Francisco continue to show their true colors—the fruity colors of the AGW rainbow! A pollution tax is on the way for you true believers out there to halt the global warming that doesn’t exist.

They’ll feel better about themselves soon, because you can see in the article that they’re admitting this effort is for nothing—it will do nothing
except raise taxes, which is all the liberals really want anyway. After you feel better about the tax, you San Franciscans can return to your lattes and various other socialist and liberal activities.

SF Becomes First In Nation To Charge 'Pollution Fee'

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Bay Area Air Quality Management District's board of directors on Wednesday approved new rules to charge businesses a fee for the pollution they emit.

The group's board of directors voted 15-1 on unprecedented new rules that will impose fees on factories, power plants, oil refineries and other businesses that emit carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases.

The agency, which regulates air pollution in the nine-county Bay Area, will be the first in the country to charge companies fees based on their greenhouse gas emissions, experts say. The new rules will take effect July 1.

The modest fee -- 4.4 cents per ton of carbon dioxide -- probably won't be enough to force companies to reduce their emissions, but backers say it sets an important precedent in combating climate change and could serve as a model for regional air districts nationwide.

Obama: We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want!

Just so that you're aware (even though you might be infatuated with goo-goo eyes and Beatle-esque fainting spells), Obama is as full of crap about global warming as McCain, Bush, and Clinton. They're all idiots on this subject of so-called "unassailable science."

The socialists are coming for your affluence, America. Are you going to let them just take it from you, or are you going to resist them?

AFP: Obama camp spies endgame in Oregon:

Pitching his message to Oregon's environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to "lead by example" on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.

GASP!: Prince Charles predicts 18 months until doom

Prince-Charles-CaricatureWe had an entry earlier this year about Prince Charles and his “super-intelligent” pronouncements; it's obvious those incestuously-enlarged sound catchers of his are tuning in way too many cosmic rays, which are melting his brain.

Have you noticed how the media and concerned parties organize the global warming propaganda campaign?

They primarily use a two-pronged approach—indoctrination duality. The majority of articles focus on fear—scaring you to the point that you'll demand political action. Fear-inspiring articles describe endangered animals, flooded coastal cities, wars, impending cannibalism, increasing storms (and antithetically…greater droughts), melting polar ice, increased diseases, and so on. As a matter of fact, it's laughable to review the plethora of horrors already ascribed to global warming by the media and others.

The other AGW propaganda approach is to “educate” us on the things we do that are contributing to global warming. Most of these things we do, for which the media and hypocritical celebrities and politicians assail us, are related to affluence and capitalism—two currently unpopular American ideals. (Only socialist elites can be wealthy, because only they can utilize wealth RESPONSIBLY!) A recent example is obesity, but there are many other examples: SUVs, computers, cows (we omnivores raise them to eat, but they poot out a bunch of methane), air travel, old-fashioned light bulbs, toilet paper (Sheryl Crow later claimed it was all an elaborate joke used to inspire AGW discussion), and so on. In other words, oil is the fuel of capitalism, and capitalism is destroying the planet. Socialism is the only solution to save the earth, but don't think the socialists will suffer while you give up your creature comforts and pay more taxes.

Why do they use this indoctrination duality? We've discussed that thoroughly as well.

Predictions of worldwide doom are not new to the global warming era; such predictions go hand-in-hand with the history of man, and they've all been wrong thus far. Please review other articles here on this blog where we've had various soothsayers predict our demise at the hands of “anthropogenic global warming”: Al Gore's prediction gives us about 8 more years; the Brit Chicken Little gives us about 40 years; and a Nobel Dodo says we'll run out of atmosphere before we run out of oil.

And you can see what happened with global warming predictions this past year; we were supposed to have an awful, warm winter due to global warming! Instead, it was a record setting, cold winter that reversed “global warming” to 1930s levels (against the dubious baseline) and led to La Nina climate revisionism to explain away failed climate predictions. Now they tell us that La Nina will mask “global warming” for about 10 years. LOL! They must salvage what's left of their reputations and stop you believing sheep from backsliding and turning against the nonsense.

I live here in San Antonio. Four days ago, the forecasters predicted a beautiful, sunny Saturday for us with no precipitation. Guess what? It rained on Saturday, and I noticed they had “revised” their forecast that day. There wasn't much precipitation, but it rained, and it was completely overcast for the first part of the day; the forecast two to three days earlier was entirely WRONG. The smartest among us can't accurately predict our day-to-day weather more than a day or so out, yet many of us are true believers and give full buy-in when the “experts” tell us we'll all be done for in a certain amount of time UNLESS WE ACT NOW (and it's that “act now” part for which they really need you). Let's see…where else have I heard “act now”? Oh yes…infomercials and telemarketing! Talk about your purveyors of truth.

Prince Charles: Eighteen months to stop climate change disaster - Telegraph:

In one of his most out-spoken interventions in the climate change debate, he said a £15 billion annual programme was required to halt deforestation or the world would have to live with the dire consequences.

“We will end up seeing more drought and starvation on a grand scale. Weather patterns will become even more terrifying and there will be less and less rainfall,” he said.

“We are asking for something pretty dreadful unless we really understand the issues now and [the] urgency of them.” The Prince said the rainforests, which provide the “air conditioning system for the entire planet”, releasing water vapour and absorbing carbon, were being lost to poor farmers desperate to make a living.

Obesity now blamed for global warming too

LOL! See, I told you. We fat, greedy, affluent, lazy Americans are all to blame, from our gas-guzzling SUVs to our gluttony-induced pizza binges. We Americans are the epitome of evil; we are gassy, bloated CO2 bags, transforming the Earth into a living greenhouse hell by belching and pooting it into oblivion.

One small problem...global warming is a lie.

Obesity contributes to global warming: study | Health | Reuters

GENEVA (Reuters) - Obesity contributes to global warming, too.

Obese and overweight people require more fuel to transport them and the food they eat, and the problem will worsen as the population literally swells in size, a team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine says.

This adds to food shortages and higher energy prices, the school's researchers Phil Edwards and Ian Roberts wrote in the journal Lancet on Friday.

"We are all becoming heavier and it is a global responsibility," Edwards said in a telephone interview. "Obesity is a key part of the big picture."

Senate AGW bill could send gas prices through the roof

Get ready. Barbara Boxer, John McCain, and all the global-warming-believing fruitcakes are going to pass this BS and hit you in the wallet. You think gas prices are high now? Just wait until these idiots try to "save the Earth" from nonexistent BS.

Global warming is NOT REAL PEOPLE. Wake up! Talk about a recession...this crap will definitely push us and the world over the edge.

Senators Warn Bill Could Spike Gas $1.50 to $5 a Gallon:

Worried about gas prices hitting $4 a gallon and beyond? Imagine if they were $6, $7 or even $8 a gallon. Those levels are a certain possibility should Congress pass cap-and-trade legislation, which could face a vote in early June.

Inhofe spoke at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 15 to introduce the “We Get It!” campaign – a program founded by evangelical Christians that question the merits of global warming alarmism. According to Inhofe, the bill will make it to the floor of the Senate on June 2.

The Embarrassed Beatle

Paul Mccartney Veg AdLOL! See the other blog entries here where we’ve talked about the hypocrisy of the rich, famous, and elite in telling you to do something to “save the planet” while they antithetically behave as they want (and buy carbon credits from themselves to “feel less guilt”).

If you’re not yet convinced of the stupidity of this global warming nonsense, you’re a zombie.

I think it’s more probable that Sir Paul is embarrassed that this little nugget was made public; I’m sure he’s not losing a lot of sleep over it.

Paul McCartney 'horrified' as his eco car is flown 7,000 miles from Japan

The Lexus LS600H, which costs £84,000, was a gift from Lexus to the 65-year-old former Beatle, who helped promote the hybrid vehicle.

But instead of arriving by boat as expected, the car was flown to Britain on a Korean Air flight, creating a carbon footprint almost 100 times bigger than if it had come by sea.

Sir Paul is a vocal advocate of vegetarianism and has long been a poster child for environmental activism.

April 2008 - Record cool temperatures!

LOL! Ahhh...it's waaaarrrrrrrmmmmmmiiiiiinnnnnggggg!


The average temperature in April 2008 was 51.0 F. This was -1.0 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 29th coolest April in 114 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.

2.39 inches of precipitation fell in April. This was -0.04 inches less than the 1901-2000 average, the 54th driest such month on record. The precipitation trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.01 inches per decade.

Ice melting fast--sound familiar?

So this story appears again and again, almost month after month, like some demented mantra the media must chant to convince you of impending doom.

Please note something important they give away in the beginning of the article, figuring you’re too dumb to see the importance of it. Satellite Arctic ice measurements started in 1978! That’s 30 freakin’ years ago, folks! Now, get out your calculator and divide 4.5 Billion (Earth’s estimated age) by 30—the number of years they’ve apparently measured Arctic ice accurately (assuming they look at it on some semi-regular, recurring basis). You’re left with the number of years that they HAVE NOT MEASURED THE ICE: 150,000,000 separate periods of 30 years. Do you realize what a statistically flawed sample that is?
They haven’t accounted for 4,499,999,970 years at the North Pole!! And how often are they taking measurements? Each decade? Weekly? Monthly? Yearly? And didn’t they first start measuring the ice because it was presumed Arctic ice was GROWING in the 1970s, when Newsweek and other rags proclaimed we were threatened with a new “ice age”? If it GREW then (during a coming “ice age”) any retreat over the past 3 decades could just be a leveling-off or a return closer to a true baseline. Please don’t be a dolt, and don’t fall for these continual, unrelenting scare tactics.

Japan scientists warn Arctic ice melting fast
TOKYO (Reuters) - Arctic ice is melting fast and the area covered by ice sheets in ocean could shrink this summer to the smallest since 1978 when satellite observation first started, Japanese scientists warned in a report.

Gore: Myanmar cyclone caused by AGW!

Wow! I didn’t see this one coming (sarcasm definitely intended). To Al Gore, every disaster is caused by global warming. Review where John Kerry blamed a tornado outbreak on global warming. Look here to see all the things for which global warming is blamed. See here where this past record-setting winter was caused by global warming. Me thinks they protest too much. This is an utter crock of crap. I’m sure the 2004 tsunami was probably caused by global warming too.

Al Gore Calls Myanmar Cyclone a 'Consequence' of Global Warming

Using tragedy to advance an agenda has been a strategy for many global warming activists, and it was just a matter of time before someone found a way to tie the recent Myanmar cyclone to global warming.

Former Vice President Al Gore in an interview on NPR’s May 6 “Fresh Air” broadcast did just that. He was interviewed by “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross about the release of his book, “The Assault on Reason,” in paperback.

“And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated,” Gore said. “And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”

Hollywood Hypocrites

LOL! Of course rich, spoiled, elitist celebrities don’t practice what they preach. We’ve seen this years before global warming. How many wealthy Hollywood lurkers have we seen bemoan the plight of various challenged groups (i.e., the poor, AIDS patients, homeless vets, etc.)? How many of them open up their own pocket books and dole out some solutions in the form of cash? What we mostly hear from them is hot air, which as you know is not good for global warming.

We also hear them implore us to donate!!?? I love it when rich people tell me—an average Joe with an average income—to donate and help someone else. Give me a break! Therefore Mr. and Mrs. Celebrity, stop driving SUVs and private jets! Give the environment a break! I don’t care how many carbon credits you buy from Al Gore. This especially goes for Arnold Swarz—how-ever-you-spell-it-enger and Al Gore. Al Gore, with his new Oscar, should feel right at home in the BS cauldron of Hollywood.

You hippy-crites! When it comes to saving the planet do celebrities practise what they preach?

Is the hot air emitted by celebrities when they spout ecological platitudes a greenhouse gas? If so, then the melting of the polar ice caps just moved a step closer, following calls by Trudie Styler, a leading celebrity ecological hypocrite - call them hippy-crites for short - for the general public to eat more locally grown vegetables.

Campaigning against food miles might seem an unlikely cause for Styler, given that a tribunal last year heard how she ordered her personal chef to travel over 100 miles to make a bowl of pasta for her youngest child and has sold olive oil and honey from her Tuscan estate, Il Palagio, 1,000 or so miles away, in Harrods in London.

Clinton: Ignore experts when I say so

This is quite telling; I wonder if anyone else will pick up on it. Here we have an avowed believer in global warming alarmism, a theory which stands only on the authority of "consensus" experts--elites, if you will. Mrs. Clinton should be well acquainted with the subject of elitism, since she happens to be a Jedi Master of said subject.

Now, when it's politically expedient, she urges the media to discount what the experts say and embrace the opinions and desires of "average folk." The implication is that the citizenry knows better than any expert economist when it comes to lowering gas prices.

I actually agree with her on this in some respects (gas taxes stink and drive up the costs for us all), but I especially agree when applying her same standard of elitist-dismissal to global warming theory. People aren't stupid. You can tell them there's human-induced global warming until you're blue in the face (based on the fact that you’re smarter than they are and know better), but empirical evidence (never mind all the scientific evidence we’ve seen from other experts) means a lot to the average citizen. People are aware of the harsh winter we just had; they’re not dumbbells.

Clinton discounts economists in gas tax debate

Pressed to name an economist who supports her plan to temporarily suspend the federal gas tax, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said today that commuters, truck drivers and other gas customers know it would make a difference.

“We have to get out of the mindset where somehow elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantage the vast majority of Americans,” Clinton said during an appearance on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos at the Conrad Hilton Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. “I’m not going to put my lot in with economists because I know if we did it right ... we would design it in such a way that it would be implemented effectively.”

GASP!: Sharks are gonna eat us!

In our new installment in the GASP! series, we cover an article that points out how you should be afraid of all the harm you're causing by breathing, pooting, and burning fossil fuels--you awful person! As a result, if you step out into the beautiful waters surrounding our great country, you might just be eaten by a globally-warmed, vengeful shark.

There have been four fatal attacks this year so far, while there was only one last year; sounds like an upsurge that can only be explained by manmade global warming, since AGW causes everything else. There's currently no warming and won't be for 10 more years. LOL! If the cooling waters of La Nina are masking warming then why would sharks be driven to be more active and attack so early in the year, especially since winter appears still very active? The theory is that warmer waters drive shark attacks and hurricanes, but we're currently cooler than the baseline average; some are currently claiming that our cool winter this year was caused by an unexpected La Nina, but that still doesn't jibe with sharks attacking people because the water's warm--it's cool! La Nina! Remember?!

A little history review will show you that shark attack spikes are NOT UNPRECEDENTED. Darn! Those pesky climate alarmists are foiled again by truth and history.

Surge in fatal shark attacks blamed on global warming | Environment | The Observer:

'The one thing that's affecting shark attacks more than anything else is human activity,' said Dr George Burgess of Florida University, a shark expert who maintains the database. 'As the population continues to rise, so does the number of people in the water for recreation. And as long as we have an increase in human hours in the water, we will have an increase in shark bites.'

Some experts suggest that an abundance of seals has attracted high numbers of sharks, while others believe that overfishing has hit their food chain. 'I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it's a convenient excuse,' Burgess said. Another contributory factor to the location of shark attacks could be global warming and rising sea temperatures. 'You'll find that some species will begin to appear in places they didn't in the past with some regularity,' he said.

Sometimes it snows in May...even with global warming

LOL! Remember, the consensus experts predicted a "warm winter." But seeing the truth, they have now grasped onto a new tactic of deception--La Nina revisionism.

May blizzard shuts down parts of S. Dakota - UPI.com:

RAPID CITY, S.D., May 2 (UPI) -- The mayor of Rapid City, S.D., Friday pleaded with residents to stay home as a May blizzard closed down streets and highways in parts of the state.

"Please, stay off the roads until the weather clears. The wind is still gusting to 50 mph with heavy snow," said Mayor Alan Hanks. "There are very few businesses that are going to open, so take a day off and enjoy it."

Global warming taking a 10-year vacation!

Cartoon Sun 6
On a cool May afternoon in 2008, an alarmed climate alarmist schemes:

"Wait! 100-years of global warming was more or less erased in one year! We need a way out of this debacle; our reputations are in jeopardy! I've got it! We'll just say that global warming is taking a decade hiatus...perfect! Surely the temperatures will begin migrating towards warmth again within a decade; all good sine waves eventually head back towards the positive. Then we'll be back in the climate-consensus-manipulation business."

We've seen this coming folks; I've already written about how they've been claiming that the cooling we've seen is caused by global warming OR that La Nina is driving the cooling trend and "masking" warming (they'll deny until they're blue in the face that solar weather has anything to do with our climate). But few in the media seem willing to entertain the idea that AGW is a bunch of bunk.

Everything possible is being dreamed up or manipulated to prop up the notion of human-emitted CO2 as the "boogeyman" of our climate. Their little theory is blowing away like a fart in the wind (or at least CO2 in the wind), and we've talked here about why they must salvage this baloney at all costs. Now, there is far too much money at stake, and far too many "experts" are on record as espousing this completely baseless drivel (in science and politics, REPUTATIONS ALSO EQUAL MONEY).

IN ONE YEAR (2007-08 winter season), the temperatures moderated in the reverse direction (below the questionable "long-term average" baseline THEY established); the global mean this winter was 0.7°C below the "long term" average (I use their words "long-term" loosely, because there's nothing statistically "LONG-TERM" about how they came up with their baseline).

Need I mention again that the temperature (against their baseline) has ONLY FALLEN since the proclaimed 1998 high (when El Nino was supposed to be warming the Earth), while CO2 keeps going up? This means (again if you believe their baseline-and why should you when they're wrong about everything else?) that our temperatures are now at 1930s levels-with AN EVER INCREASING CO2 SATURATION! So, the very basis of their theory is done--IT'S SHOT! Therefore, enter La Nina to save the day. We must keep the faithful believing in the faith! There MUST be a reason global warming is being "masked"! LOL! So many "consensus experts" can't be wrong.

Just remember, when Galileo published his theories about the Sun being the center of the known universe (opposing the Earth-centric theory espoused by the Roman-Catholic Church), other thinkers of the day produced intricate, complex mathematical models by which we could continue propping up the church-backed myth that the Earth was the center of the solar system, such that it would jibe with the observed movements of the heavens. Galileo's theory was perfect; it easily explained the movements of the heavenly bodies in terms of elliptical or circular orbits, but it also required one to accept the notion (now known fact) that the Sun was the center of the solar system.

This was heresy at the time! Galileo was threatened, branded with "D" for "denier" or "skeptic," if you will; he dared to poke the consensus opinion (the "smart" people) of the day with a stick. Galileo was also eventually silenced and forced to recant his "heretical" counter-theory, eventually vindicated only after his death. Sounds a lot like what's going on right now with the consensus-deemed "unassailable theory" of manmade global warming. It's utter nonsense...it's in danger of being totally exposed. Advocates and alarmists aren't happy with this recent turn of cold and snowy events, so it's time for "shields-up!"

Ocean Cooling to Briefly Halt Global Warming, Researchers Say

April 30 (Bloomberg) -- Parts of North America and Europe may cool naturally over the next decade, as shifting ocean currents temporarily blunt the global-warming effect caused by mankind, Germany's Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences said. Average temperatures in areas such as California and France may drop over the next 10 years, influenced by colder flows in the North Atlantic, said a report today by the institution based in Kiel, Germany. Temperatures worldwide may stabilize in the period.

``Natural variations over the next 10 years might be heading in the cold direction,'' Wood said. ``If you run the model long enough, eventually global warming will win.''

The world will become at least 2.5 degrees Celsius warmer by 2100, compared with the pre-industrial period, Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, said in March.

Steven Milloy of junkscience.com had a terrific write-up on this very subject (he beat me to the punch :D):

Junk Science: The Great Global Warming Race

Can global warming's vested interests close the deal on greenhouse gas regulation before the public wises up to their scam? A new study indicates alarmist concern and a need to explain away the lack of actual global warming. Researchers belonging to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, reported in Nature (May 1) that after adjusting their climate model to reflect actual sea surface temperatures of the last 50 years, "global surface temperature may not increase over the next decade, as natural climate variations ... temporarily offset the projected anthropogenic warming."

You got that? IPCC researchers project no global warming over the next decade because of Mother Nature. Although the result seems stunning in that it came from IPCC scientists who have always been in the tank for manmade global warming, it's not really surprising since the notion of manmade climate change has never lived up to its billing.

The bottom line of global warming - and that is why so many are behind it - is that its many vested interests are on the verge of a financial and political bonanza, something that scientific facts and climatic realities are likely only to spoil.

So when global temperature doesn't behave as predicted, excuses and explanations must be found to prevent the almost-mature golden goose from being roasted for dinner. The spin on the Nature study provided by its authors to The New York Times is that, "We're learning that [natural] climate variability is important and can mask the effects of human-induced global change. In the end this gives more confidence in the long-term projections."

Did Dr. Gray and CSU reach compromise on warming lie?

So, it sounds to me as if CSU had initially intimidated Dr. Gray, famed hurricane forecaster, for speaking his mind about the global warming lie, but it appears they've come to some behind-the-scenes agreement that requires him to keep his mouth shut about the intimidation he suffered. Is the quid pro quo that he keeps his position and continues his work?

I'm glad there are scientists like Dr. Gray, Dr. Christy, Dr. Reiter, and Dr. Lindzen out there who are brave enough to speak up about the AGW myth. Remember...Galileo was eventually silenced as well by religious authorities; now, the new religion is global warming, and its authorities are attempting to silence the few, brave voices willing to state the truth--global warming is one of the greatest scams (maybe the greatest in history) ever perpetrated on mankind; it must be the greatest in history, because it's a worldwide phenomenon of deceit, thanks to the flow of misinformation through the Internet and other electronic media venues.

Hurricane Expert Says His Global Warming Views Haven't Affected University's Support

William Gray, a professor emeritus at Colorado State, is a skeptic of man-made global warming and once said that pro-global warming scientists are "brainwashing our children." An article Monday by the Houston Chronicle that was cited by FOX News claimed that Gray's views had prompted the university to stop promoting his renowned annual North Atlantic hurricane forecasts. The Chronicle quoted a memo Gray sent the university last year accusing it of trying to stifle his views on global warming, but Gray issued a statement Tuesday saying that his status at the university hadn't changed.

Record snowfall in AK (nearly May)

Here we are a few days away from May and we’re still seeing record snowfall and cold in the great age of “global warming,” during the “warmest winter on record.” It was around 45°F a few mornings this week in San Antonio, TX! Maybe the cold, once present at the poles, has shifted towards the equator, while the poles are now the new temperate regions (LOL)?

Anchorage digs out after record snowfall:

Anchorage continues to dig out from a snowfall that set a record for the day and the month.The National Weather Service says 17.2 inches fell at its office just south of Anchorage's international airport and 22 inches fell in northeast Anchorage on Friday and Saturday.

The heaviest snow fell between 3 and 6 p.m. Friday at a rate of almost two inches per hour.

The monthly total at the weather service office is now 29.7 inches, breaking a record from 1963 when 27.6 inches fell during April.
