GASP!: Climate Change Alters Tea Taste?

Yes, you read that right. Someone has actually (scientifically, I'm sure) related "manmade global climate disruption" to the changed taste of tea. There are so many ways to pick this apart as a scientist that it's not funny. Someone throw the BS flag, please. Need more bullshit? Read the GASP! series and visit Dr. Brignell's warmlist page to grasp the depth of the stupidity associated with this pseudo-science religion that refuses die amid scandal upon scandal.

GAUHATI, India -- Tea growers in northeastern India say climate change has hurt the country's tea crop, leading not just to a drop in production but also subtly altering the flavor of their brew.

Record Winter Storm Slams Eastern U.S. (Caused by Humans, Of Course)

Empirical evidence mounts each winter, even in the face of dire "record warm" predictions. But don't worry folks; the global warming pipe dream is still alive. The New York Crimes says so. No matter what the's caused by warming. Scam protected.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A band of frigid weather snaking its way up the East Coast on Sunday threatened to bring blizzards and a foot of snow to New York City and New England, while several states made emergency declarations as the storm caused crashes on slick roads.

Airlines grounded hundreds of flights Sunday along the Northeast corridor in anticipation of the storm, affecting major airports including New York's JFK and Newark. Airlines said more cancellations were likely as the storm progressed. Travel misery began a day earlier in parts of the South, where a rare white Christmas came with reports of dozens of car crashes.

NYT: Record Cold Caused by Warming (They're Serious)

I've been saying this for years, but try not to swallow your tongue anyway. These guys in the media (and the leftist "thinking" establishment) can't accept that they've been completely bamboozled by a climate cartel intent on global governance and global economic control. That's all this bullshit is. Average Americans know it. But the so-called 'smartest among us' are apparently the greatest morons. Every recent winter has been record setting in terms of COLD and the summers HAVE NOT been record setting in terms of WARMTH, despite predictions to the contrary! So, the shift has been to blame the cooler climate on warming in both summer and winter. Can anyone else see the imbecility of this crap besides me?!!!!

All of this cold was met with perfect comic timing by the release of a World Meteorological Organization report showing that 2010 will probably be among the three warmest years on record, and 2001 through 2010 the warmest decade on record.

How can we reconcile this? The not-so-obvious short answer is that the overall warming of the atmosphere is actually creating cold-weather extremes. Last winter, too, was exceptionally snowy and cold across the Eastern United States and Eurasia, as were seven of the previous nine winters.

For a more detailed explanation, we must turn our attention to the snow in Siberia.

Annual cycles like El NiƱo/Southern Oscillation, solar variability and global ocean currents cannot account for recent winter cooling. And though it is well documented that the earth’s frozen areas are in retreat, evidence of thinning Arctic sea ice does not explain why the world’s major cities are having colder winters.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Global Shamming would like to wish everyone a Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year. Please enjoy all the warm weather outside, brought to you courtesy of that evil capitalist carbon atom.

A storm system off the Northeast Coast will unleash a paralyzing blizzard along a vast swath of the I-95 corridor today.

The storm is no joke and threatens to shut down major highways in the region and could close some major airports, creating a nightmare for those souls heading home after the Christmas holiday.

[From - Weather News | Dangerous Blizzard to Slam Philadelphia to Boston]

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A winter storm that brought a rare white Christmas to parts of the South was barreling up the East Coast early Sunday, with forecasters predicting 6 to 10 inches of snow for Washington and blizzard conditions for New York City and New England.

Airlines canceled hundreds of Sunday flights in the Northeast corridor, with more likely to come as the storm intensifies.

Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina declared states of emergency early Sunday or Saturday night. As North Carolina road crews tried to clear snowy and icy highways, Mid-Atlantic officials spent Christmas Day preparing for up to a foot of snow, plunging temperatures and high winds.

MOSCOW, Dec 26 (Reuters) - Moscow's Domodedovo airport was closed and thousands of Muscovites were left without power on Sunday after a heavy overnight snowfall, the RIA Novosti news agency said.

It quoted an airport spokeswoman as saying flights at the airport, Russia's busiest, were halted after two electricity substations were knocked out.

"The airport service is suspended," the spokeswoman, Elena Galanova, was quoted as saying, adding that it was not clear when operations would resume.

The Moscow United Electric Grid Company said about 100,000 people in the region were affected by power outages, according to RIA.

The temperature in Moscow hovered around zero degrees Celsius on Saturday and early Sunday. Some rail services were also disrupted.

PARIS (Reuters) – Hundreds of travellers trapped by icy weather spent Christmas Day queuing for flights in Europe on Saturday after sleeping on camp beds overnight in Paris and Brussels airports.

Travel disruptions this month have upset year-end travel for hundreds of thousands of people and raised questions about the air industry's lack of preparation for icy weather.
Flight schedules were returning to normal in Paris, thanks to fresh deliveries of de-icing fluid from Germany and the United States.

Thulsa Doom Obama and EPA Say 'Screw You, America'

What does a dictator do when he's 'stymied by Congress' (which was elected by the American people to stop his ass)? Act unilaterally, of course. And remember (after decades), the EPA FINALLY admitted that there's no danger from saccharin. How long before these liberal morons will let go of the great 'global warming scare' and move on to the next scam?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Stymied in Congress, the Obama administration is moving unilaterally to clamp down on greenhouse emissions, announcing plans for new power plants and oil refinery emission standards over the next year.

In an announcement posted on the agency's website late Thursday, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson said the aim was to better cope with pollution contributing to climate change.

"We are following through on our commitment to proceed in a measured and careful way to reduce GHG pollution that threatens the health and welfare of Americans," Jackson said in a statement. She said emissions from power plants and oil refineries constitute about 40 percent of the greenhouse gas pollution in this country.

EPA: CO2 Supplants Saccharin as Environmental Threat

Seems like the politics, fear campaigns, and brouhahas of the present day will always give way to the next generation of scams designed to implant further government regulation, oversight, and control. CO2--that gas that you exhale every moment--has been deemed a 'threat' for climatic warming by our lovely liberal government (though the weather outside is currently frightful). You can see where the scares of old end the scrap heap of history. No more 60 Minutes news stories with the nervous, chain-smoking CEO on saccharin's dangers now.

Now the obvious conclusion that no one seems to be making in our "skeptical media." If the EPA thinks saccharin is not 'a threat after all then maybe CO2 isn't either. I guess we'll have to wait a few decades for the newest, lamest scare to come along.

CHICAGO – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has dropped the artificial sweetener saccharin from its list of hazardous substances, the agency said on Tuesday.

The white crystalline powder used in diet drinks, chewing gum and juice was dubbed a potential cancer-causing agent in 1980. While a review by the National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer cleared saccharin in the late 1990s, it has remained on the EPA's potential hazard list.

[From EPA Says Saccharin Not a Threat After All -]

The Obama administration has said it will regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants amid opposition from industry and Republicans in Congress.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it would regulate emissions from fossil fuel power plants by 2011 and petroleum refineries by 2012.

President Barack Obama is pushing the EPA to cut emissions after a climate bill failed in Congress this year.

But Republican lawmakers have said the EPA's new rules will harm the economy.

Empirical Winter Worsens for Warming Believers

A look at recent cold weather news from around the globe here in one of these "warmest years on record." Empirical evidence has looked like this for the past several years during winter. Weird how alarmists either look only at warming-related empirical data, or they now proclaim that these winter weather events are caused by warming too.

“We could really see some big avalanches that we haven’t seen in 50, maybe even 100 years if this kind of snow comes in like they say,” Toepher said.
For too many people safety isn’t a concern. When it snows, people will come despite the warnings.

[From Avalanche Danger Could Be Worst In Colo. History « CBS Denver – News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of Denver]

But in this city, hard by the Snow Belt beneath Lake Ontario, there is no need for any caveat. By this time, every year, it has snowed so heavily and so often that any more would be incomprehensible.

Syracuse has met the incomprehensible. As of Tuesday, even before winter had officially begun — at 6:38 p.m. Eastern time — 71.9 inches of snow had fallen this month, making it the city’s snowiest December on record.

[From In Syracuse, a Record December Snowfall -]

The snow will likely continue across metro Atlanta through Saturday night before ending Sunday morning.

"Across the north Georgia mountains, the precipitation should fall as snow the entire time, allowing 2 to 4 inch accumulations there," Nitz said.

In a statement issued early Thursday, the National Weather Service predicted that 1 to 3 inches of snow could fall across metro Atlanta, with accumulations of an inch or less south of the city.

[From Atlanta weather | Snow accumulations likely on Christmas Day |]

Winter is already in full swing in the Colorado high country as a WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect through Tuesday night for nearly all mountain areas in Colorado, which could see 12 to 36 inches of snow.

The mountains surrounding Vail, Aspen, Snowmass, Crested Butte, Telluride and Silverton should see 1 to 3 feet of snow by Tuesday evening with the heaviest snow on west-facing slopes.

Journalists Were Once Ultimate Skeptics

Not any more. "Journalists" are advocates for liberal causes; they don't question shit. Look at all the ignored climate scandals. Look at all the empirical evidence (i.e., cold) that prompted the language shift from "global warming" to "climate change" and then, finally, "global climate disruption" (Obama's minions). The fact that so many "smart" people can't see through this crap is truly fascinating.

Well, you must be wrong because Fox News Washington Bureau Chief Bill Sammon is getting a raft of garbage from liberal activists masquerading as journalists at Media Matters, some liberal bloggers and a scattering of real journalists who ought to know better.

Why? Politico’s headline captures the controversy perfectly: “Fox editor urged climate skepticism.”

A journalist being skeptical? Who would ever have thought such a thing could be. I don’t know, maybe anybody who has heard this (attributed long ago to a crusty desk editor at the illustrious City News Bureau in Chicago): “If your mother tells you she loves you, check it out.”

In other words, we journalists are paid to BE SKEPTICAL.

More Death of Climate Fad: Pelosi's Panel Sacked

So much for ol' Bug Eye's climate panel. It was dumb while it lasted. LOL! More evidence that this fad and myth will only be a footnote in history.

Republicans will eliminate the House committee created by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to highlight the threat of climate change, Representative James Sensenbrenner, the top Republican on the panel, said today.

In one of her first acts as speaker in 2007, Pelosi, a California Democrat, created the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming to draw attention to climate-change science and showcase how a cap on carbon dioxide needn’t be a threat to economic growth.

Republicans, who won control of the House in the Nov. 2 election, have opposed legislative efforts to regulate carbon emissions as a tax on energy. When the panel convened today, Sensenbrenner, a Wisconsin Republican, said that the hearing “will be the last of the select committee.”

Death of Climate Fad: Thulsa Doom Frees Big Energy from Oversight

How do you know that global warming is a DEAD POLITICAL MOVEMENT? Because liberals got what they wanted and it didn't work out in their favor. The economy shrunk just as they wanted to 'fight global warming,' but the economy's showing over the past few years will kill their chances at regaining or maintaining power (as the elections of 2010 showed). Therefore, global warming is now deader than dead; liberals have seen where it ranks with Americans, and it's no replacement for a good economy. It's a footnote in history, and I'm glad my children have witnessed this utterly ridiculous bullshit, so that they can teach their kids to watch out for government shenanigans (i.e., power and tax grabs for noble causes).

In the name of job creation and clean energy, the Obama administration has doled out billions of dollars in stimulus money to some of the nation’s biggest polluters and granted them sweeping exemptions from the most basic form of environmental oversight, a Center for Public Integrity investigation has found.

The administration has awarded more than 179,000 “categorical exclusions” to stimulus projects funded by federal agencies, freeing those projects from review under the National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA. Coal-burning utilities like Westar Energy and Duke Energy, chemical manufacturer DuPont, and ethanol maker Didion Milling are among the firms with histories of serious environmental violations that have won blanket NEPA exemptions.

Cancun: Scientists Want to Ration Developed World

Remember when I wrote about prominent liberals in this country (and elsewhere) who said that we must 'shrink the economy' to stop global warming? Well, they've gotten their wish, and thus (following the 2010 election results), you can bet your ass that global warming as an issue is now dead. Americans aren't buying it and prefer wealth to poverty.

I've said this for years: Global warming is nothing but a means to--finally--circumvent capitalism and advance socialism. The intellectual elite figured they had finally found a way to sneak it past all of us simpletons. After all, what's more noble than trying to save the planet? If you raise taxes, you're doing it to save the planet. If you harm wealthy, developed countries to redistribute wealth to the underdeveloped Third World, you're doing it to save the planet. If you kill off oil as the primary source of energy (and kill oil companies and capitalism in the process), it's all done to preserve Mother Earth.

Why would scientists really want to do anything except advance science? Because most of them are left-leaning intellectual elites; they know better than you about things and want to save you from yourselves. But don't worry...they're not narcissists or anything.

In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.

This would mean a drastic change in lifestyles for many people in countries like Britain as everyone will have to buy less ‘carbon intensive’ goods and services such as long haul flights and fuel hungry cars.

Prof Anderson admitted it “would not be easy” to persuade people to reduce their consumption of goods
He said politicians should consider a rationing system similar to the one introduced during the last “time of crisis” in the 1930s and 40s.

Need you any additional evidence that we're dealing with a bunch of tree-hugging hippy psycho-libs? This climate scam is dead...deader than dead. It has been dead for years, but it really had a cardiac arrest with the exposure of the recently revealed scandals involving prominent players of the so-called climate 'consensus.' Die a good death, global warming garbage. Even if the news media refuses to acknowledge reality.

With United Nations climate negotiators facing an uphill battle to advance their goal of reducing emissions linked to global warming, it's no surprise that the woman steering the talks appealed to a Mayan goddess Monday.

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddess Ixchel in her opening statement to delegates gathered in Cancun, Mexico, noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also "the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you -- because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools."

Did CA Reverse Course on Crap-&-Tax?

No clue if California passed this or not, but I hope they reversed course. If they passed it then they give me hope that their state is not entirely stupid.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- If California were a country, it would be the world's 19th largest polluter. Recognizing that, a few years ago lawmakers here passed AB 32, a first in the nation 'cap and trade' type anti-global warming bill.

But come Tuesday, voters here have the opportunity to turn back the clock. Proposition 23 would stop the state's "Global Warming Solutions Act' from taking effect in January.

Proposition 23 would put a hold on the new emission standards until the state's unemployment rate drops to 5.5 percent or less for an entire year. The last time that occured was in the 1970s.

New Term: Gore-pocrite

Al Gore has been caught in hypocritical climate behavior so many times now that he deserves a new term: Gore-pocrite!

Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to – if possible – use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits – for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution – any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined.

It starts to form a pattern.

Virgin's Space Tourism Will Increase AGW

Global warming, climate change, or 'global climate disruption' (as Thulsa Doom Obama's minions like to now call it) is complete BS, but it's interesting that 'climate champion' Richard Branson would be responsible for something like this...LOL!

Climate change caused by black carbon, also known as soot, emitted during a decade of commercial space flight would be comparable to that from current global aviation, researchers estimate.

The findings, reported in a paper in press in Geophysical Research Letters1, suggest that emissions from 1,000 private rocket launches a year would persist high in the stratosphere, potentially altering global atmospheric circulation and distributions of ozone. The simulations show that the changes to Earth's climate could increase polar surface temperatures by 1 °C, and reduce polar sea ice by 5–15%.

Gov't Motors' Volt is Really Oil-to-Volt

Surprise saps! There are no 'shovel-ready' jobs as Thulsa Doom Obama has himself FINALLY admitted, after touting them for a year to pass the huge 'economic stimulus' that didn't stimulate anything except voter discontent, and it turns out that 'green tech' is a big ol' lie, too, at Government Motors.

The 'electric car'? It's a gas-powered hybrid. Surprise!

Green Technology: Government Motors' all-electric car isn't all-electric and doesn't get near the touted hundreds of miles per gallon. Like "shovel-ready" jobs, maybe there's no such thing as "plug-ready" cars either.

The Chevy Volt, hailed by the Obama administration as the electric savior of the auto industry and the planet, makes its debut in showrooms next month, but it's already being rolled out for test drives by journalists. It appears we're all being taken for a ride.


The gasoline engine has been found to be more than a range-extender for the battery. Volt engineers are now admitting that when the vehicle's lithium-ion battery pack runs down and at speeds near or above 70 mph, the Volt's gasoline engine will directly drive the front wheels along with the electric motors. That's not charging the battery — that's driving the car.

Vaclav Klaus: Climate Change "no threat"

There's plenty of stuff to read by the Czech President on this blog. Thank you for your leadership, Sir.

LONDON, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Climate change is not a threat and the consequences of global warming will not be catastrophic, the President of the Czech Republic said on Tuesday.

Vaclav Klaus is a vocal sceptic on the topic of global warming. He published a book in 2007 in which he said global warming had turned into a new religion, an ideology that threatens to undermine freedom and the world's economic and social order.

"Global warming in the last 150 years was modest and future warming and its consequences will not be dangerous or catastrophic. It doesn't look like a threat we should respond to," he told a lecture in London on Tuesday.
"I don't see empirical evidence of human-caused global warming. I see so many mistakes in the methodology of science and modelling," he added.


However, public opinion has shown resistance to strong action to combat climate change, especially after a U.N. summit in Copenhagen last year failed to seal a global deal on cutting greenhouse gas emissions and scandals emerged surrounding climate science.

U.N.'s Pachuri Surprised by Scandal Outrage

These schmucks just don't get it. In one year, SEVERAL climate change scandals were revealed (see Climategate, NASA-gate, Glacier-gate, Rainforest-gate, and Netherland-gate). All of these "respectable, scientific" agencies were caught manipulating data, hiding data, destroying data, conspiring to limit legitimate scientific debate (from skeptical climate scientists), and in this case, quoting environmentalist propaganda as scientific fact (when, IN FACT, it wasn't true). The media has been in an accomplice by REFUSING to cover any of these stories.

All of these scandals prove what 'deniers' and 'skeptics' have been saying all along: global warming is a trumped-up capitalism killer. That's all it is and ever will be.

The head of the UN climate science body has admitted he was taken entirely by surprise by the ferocious public reaction to a blunder in its report on Himalayan glaciers. But he insisted the controversy had not set back efforts to secure action on climate change.

The mistake, a false assertion that the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035, exacted severe damage to the reputation of the IPCC and its head, Rajendra Pachauri. It also provided further fuel to the controversy over the emails stolen from East Anglia's climate research unit and released online a year ago today.

GASP!: UN Conference: 'We Are Destroying Life on Earth'

See the silliness of this? You'd think the U.N. climate folks didn't realize that they were just caught up in climate change scandals, whereby they were doing some shady things to paint a picture far worse than reality as it relates to manmade global warming.

Need more fear and silliness? See the GASP! series and warmlist.

Despite the U.N.'s fear that biodiversity may be at risk, scientists over the past decade have identified new species at an unprecedented rate. The 2008 World Wildlife Fund (WWF) study First Contact in the Greater Mekong reported that 1,068 species were discovered or newly identified by science between 1997 and 2007 -- averaging two new species a week. And the Census of Marine Life -- an ambitious, 10-year project to catalog the diversity of the world's oceans -- recently concluded, having identified more than 6,000 potentially new ocean-going species.

Scientists have a growing understanding of the wealth of life on Earth, and the conference argues that our diversity is being threatened. The two-week U.N. meeting faces an uphill battle as it tries to institute sweeping steps to protect and restore ecosystems such as forests, rivers, coral reefs and the oceans that are vital for an ever-growing human population. Issues of funding will be a key problem delegates will need to iron out -- both who pays for the program and who reaps the rewards of the world's biodiversity.

Gore: EtOH 'Not Good Policy'

Really Al? If you had asked us back about 3 years ago when you started in on this biofuels business, we could have told you what a moron you were being (kind of like the moron you're being on everything related to this science-warping, global-warming bullshit). How about going a step further? Why not admit that this entire thing is one giant, government-backed boondoggle (because it is). Climate fear is nothing but a means to seize greater power and resources for the government, which means that capitalism must take it on the chin for socialism to prevail.

Of course (like a lot of liberal policies), biofuels had a different effect than intended. It raised the price of food (making the poor more at risk in the world) and raised the price of fuel (making the economy worse...something a lot of liberals wanted anyway). And since global warming isn't real, it didn't do a damn thing to the climate.

ATHENS, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore said support for corn-based ethanol in the United States was "not a good policy", weeks before tax credits are up for renewal.

U.S. blending tax breaks for ethanol make it profitable for refiners to use the fuel even when it is more expensive than gasoline. The credits are up for renewal on Dec. 31.

Total U.S. ethanol subsidies reached $7.7 billion last year according to the International Energy Industry, which said biofuels worldwide received more subsidies than any other form of renewable energy.

"It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for (U.S.) first generation ethanol," said Gore, speaking at a green energy business conference in Athens sponsored by Marfin Popular Bank.

700 Alarmist Scientists Plan Campaign (Against 31,000+)

Apparently these schmucks have conveniently forgotten Climategate, NASA-gate, IPCC-gate--all of the climate scandals that broke over the past year and demonstrated what a bunch of shit this global warming lie is. Stay out of politics?!?! These alarmist, fear-mongering buttholes have NEVER stayed out of politics. All they've done is to seek global taxation and regulation to 'save us from ourselves.'

This is SO EASY to counter; simply enlist the THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of SKEPTICAL SCIENTISTS. Then maybe the world will get the picture that there is NO UNQUESTIONED CONSENSUS.

Reporting from Washington — Faced with rising political attacks, hundreds of climate scientists are joining a broad campaign to push back against congressional conservatives who have threatened prominent researchers with investigations and vowed to kill regulations to rein in man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

The still-evolving efforts reveal a shift among climate scientists, many of whom have traditionally stayed out of politics and avoided the news media. Many now say they are willing to go toe-to-toe with their critics, some of whom gained new power after the Republicans won control of the House in Tuesday's election.

On Monday, the American Geophysical Union, the country's largest association of climate scientists, plans to announce that 700 climate scientists have agreed to speak out as experts on questions about global warming and the role of man-made air pollution.

So Long, Crap-and-Tax

Looks like the proverbial CO2 poot winds have been taken out of these scam sails. Hallelujah!!!

The air has been taken out of the carbon trading market.

The only national carbon trading market in the U.S. will close its doors next month, due to stalled legislation in Congress and Republican gains in the midterm elections -- a major setback in efforts to regulate so-called greenhouse gases, which environmentalists argue contribute to global warming.

Since 2003, the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has operated a voluntary network where companies can pledge to meet annual targets for the emissions of carbon from their factories and businesses. Those below the targets can sell surplus allowances or bank them; those above can purchase credits to offset their emissions -- similar to President Obama's stalled "cap and trade" legislation

But according to an advisory posted to the exchange's website, participants simply didn't want to trade in carbon credits without a legal requirement that they do so. Jeff Sprecher, chief executive of the InternationalExchange and CCX's owner, confirmed to the Financial Times that participants in the CCX's cap-and-trade system wanted to pull out.

$700K Cow Burp-Fart Study

Your tax dollars hard at work. We all know how detrimental farts are to the environment. Please shove a cork in it, immediately.

DURHAM – University of New Hampshire and outside researchers are creating a computer model to help organic dairy farmers cut greenhouse gas emissions such as methane, because Beano probably isn't an option.

Nitrogen- and carbon-based greenhouse gases are produced via a complicated system at dairy farms that is affected by everything from the weather to the soil to the feed to cow burps, among other things.

"Cows emit most of their methane through belching, only a small fraction from flatulence," said the project's principal investigator, Ruth Varner of UNH's Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space.

UNH has been awarded a $700,000 U.S. Department of Agriculture grant to create a computer model that measures the amount of greenhouse gases an organic dairy farm produces and thus provide ways to cut those emissions.

It has ALWAYS been about socialism...ALWAYS about wealth redistribution. Never doubt that. Soros is wealthy...why doesn't HE fund this garbage himself?

At least $65 billion might be raised by taxing foreign-exchange transactions and auctioning pollution permits, a United Nations panel said today in a report recommending ways to finance aid for fighting global warming.

The panel, which includes billionaire investor George Soros and Larry Summers, director of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council, said selling carbon-emissions permits would generate $38 billion and a financial transactions tax an additional $27 billion, according to the report released today.

NOAA and Old Farmer's Almanac Duel

So who's going to be right? Will NOAA's warming-centric prediction--one that has been increasingly WRONG--hold true for the winter, or will the Old Farmer's Almanac (80-85% accuracy) win the day with its colder-than-normal winter? We've seen how NOAA has blown it over the past several years; the world has had DEADLY COLD winters since 2008, even though NOAA, NASA, and other AGW proponents of the "consensus" tried to prop up "warmest <fill-in-the-blank> on record" claims. All of this while story upon story touted record cold and winter events in China, Russia, United States, and many other places around the world.

Here's my prediction: OFA wins by a mile!

DUBLIN, N.H. – Most of the country will see a colder-than-usual winter while summer and spring will be relatively cool and dry, according to the time-honored, complex calculations of the "Old Farmer's Almanac."

New Study Says Ice Melts Overestimated

And this story comes from a left-of-center news source, so one might come away with the feeling that AFP would prefer to soften the blow to the global warming faithful as much as possible, considering the strength of this data. I'm sure none of the other news organizations (like Reuters or AP) will pick this up, or they'll try to frame it in someway that continues to hold on to the pipedream of manmade global warming.

If scientists were wrong about this, and they were heavily involved in multiple recent climate scandals, and their predictions about climate calamities continue to falter, and their hurricane season predictions (in terms of strength and number) continue to be wrong, a thinking person needs to ask herself what else could "consensus" scientists have incorrect?

Climate: New study slashes estimate of icecap loss

PARIS (AFP) - - Estimates of the rate of ice loss from Greenland and West Antarctica, one of the most worrying questions in the global warming debate, should be halved, according to Dutch and US scientists.

In the last two years, several teams have estimated Greenland is shedding roughly 230 gigatonnes of ice, or 230 billion tonnes, per year and West Antarctica around 132 gigatonnes annually.

Together, that would account for more than half of the annual three-millimetre (0.2 inch) yearly rise in sea levels, a pace that compares dramatically with 1.8mm (0.07 inches) annually in the early 1960s.

CA Overstated Pollution by 340% to Pass Diesel Laws

Sounds amazingly like all the global warming scandals that have surfaced over the past two years. Please note everyone: Scientists (even "consensus" ones) are not infallible human beings; they have political inclinations which CAN AND DO (sometimes) bias their research.

Please don't fall for the arrogant liberal maxim that says normal, "uneducated" folk are unintelligent morons who can't think their way out of a paper sack. Common sense is sometimes useful in sniffing out the rats in one's science.

California grossly miscalculated pollution levels in a scientific analysis used to toughen the state's clean-air standards, and scientists have spent the past several months revising data and planning a significant weakening of the landmark regulation, The Chronicle has found.

The pollution estimate in question was too high - by 340 percent, according to the California Air Resources Board, the state agency charged with researching and adopting air quality standards. The estimate was a key part in the creation of a regulation adopted by the Air Resources Board in 2007, a rule that forces businesses to cut diesel emissions by replacing or making costly upgrades to heavy-duty, diesel-fueled off-road vehicles used in construction and other industries.

Ted Turner: Global Warming a 'Survival Issue'

Good ol' commie Uncle Ted. He's just looking out for us. Yes, Ted, we have to pick our fights. And I choose to fight against you, your ilk, and your false fear mongering. Remember, Ted was the one who stated that global warming would turn us all into cannibals.

“I’ve worked all my life and I’m way too young to retire at 65, so I looked around for something to do and this looked like the most important area. It’s a survival issue for the human race, for life on the planet, so I decided to concentrate on it.

“It is a survival issue. We choose to do this because it is so important. Failure is not an option because if we fail here, it is just unthinkable. The consequences are just so great. We have to deal with this,” Turner said.

“We almost lost the bison in this country, and I dedicated part of my life to bringing the bison back. We have to pick our fights and fight hard and we can’t afford to lose this one,” he said.

2010 Cyclone Season Marks 33-Year LOW

Ever since Katrina in 2005 (a devastating hurricane season for sure), climatologists and various authorities on tropical weather have predicted "stronger than average" hurricane seasons. While the Atlantic season did appear active this year, no major storms hit the United States, even though there have been no shortage of cyclonic doom predictions since Katrina.

AccuWeather predicted the United States would be hit by five named storms in 2010; it didn't happen. And AccuWeather is one of these groups that peddles global warming nonsense. Previous seasonal predictions since 2005 have also failed to materialize.

And the oft blamed culprit for these dire predictions that don't materialize? You guessed it: manmade global warming.

The only problem with these silly (failed) predictions is that Mother Nature didn't cooperate, once again proving that our climate is enormously complex and still capable of baffling the so-called smartest among us.

Update: Current Year-to-Date analysis of Northern Hemisphere and Global Tropical Cyclone Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) AND Power Dissipation Index (PDI) has fallen even further than during the previous 3-years. The global inactivity is at 33-year lows and historical where Typhoons form in the Western Pacific.

While the North Atlantic has seen 15 tropical storms / hurricanes of various intensity, the Pacific basin as a whole is at historical lows! In the Western North Pacific stretching from Guam to Japan and the Philippines and China, the current ACE value of 48 is the lowest seen since reliable records became available (1945) and is 78% below normal*. The next lowest was an ACE of 78 in 1998. See figure below for visual evidence of the past 40-years of tropical cyclone activity.

Animal Death-Watch: One Third of 'Extinct' Animals AREN'T!

This just goes to show you that alarmists can knee-jerk and overreact, and that includes climate scares. The overreaction in that regard continues unabated, scandals be damned. See more of the Animal Death-Watch series to see what horrors alarmists say await Earth's animals at the hands of evil Western capitalism.

Conservationists are overestimating the number of species that have been driven to extinction, scientists have said.

Montana Gets September Snow

I guess this is that 'global climate disruption,' huh? 'Climate change' didn't do enough to throw off the laughable shackles of 'global warming,' given that we've seen record-setting winters and colder summers recently. More empirical evidence to show you that the Earth is not being heated by American capitalism.

Snow began falling in some areas of north central Montana and along the Rocky Mountain Front early on Friday, leaving some people checking their calendar to see if it is still, in fact, summer.

A rain-snow mix in and around Great Falls turned to all snow around 10 am in some areas. Up to an inch of accumulation may be possible throughout Friday, and temperatures will remain in the upper 30s to low 40s.

TX First to Challenge 'Consensus' in Court

Given that the EPA, NOAA, NASA, and other government agencies have continuously cited the now-discredited IPCC's latest climate report (that openly exaggerated and even relied on environmentalist rantings instead of hard science), Texas is the first to tell the EPA to take their regulation of CO2 as 'pollution' and shove it.

Don't mess with TX, you socialists.

The state of Texas today sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a federal appeals court in Washington DC, claiming four new regulations imposed by the EPA are based on the 'thoroughly discredited' findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and are 'factually flawed,' 1200 WOAI news reports.  

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says the rules are illegal and if imposed, will cost Texans in higher energy costs and tens of thousands of lost jobs.  

"The state explained that the IPCC, and therefore the EPA, relied on flawed science to conclude that greenhouse emissions endanger public health and welfare," Abbott said. "Because the Administration predicated its Endangerment Finding on the IPCC's questionable facts, the state is seeking to prevent the EPA's new rules, and the economic harm that will result from these regulations, from being imposed on Texas employers, workers, and enforcement agencies."

High-Level Inquiry on IPCC: "Little Evidence"

This will not stop the alarmist idiots out there who continue to herald the coming apocalypse at the hands of evil capitalism. Meanwhile, the United States continues to suffer at the hands of a socialist government designed to inflict major harm on capitalism--and it has done just that.

A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.

It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.

The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false claims that Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.

Thulsa Doom Obama: 'Global Climate Disruption' Instead of AGW

So, Thulsa Doom and his team realize that the public thinks 'anthropogenic global warming' is a steaming pile of caca...because it is. And rebranding global warming as 'manmade climate change' didn't much work either. People weren't fooled, especially considering all of the climate scandals that were exposed recently.

So what's a pinko-leftwing-socialist-environmentalist to do when his boondoggle is threatened? Why, change the name yet again, of course. That way you simpletons will know that the freak snow storm in April you experienced is really YOUR capitalist fault too!

He said the climate change change-up likely derives from flagging public support for their bill to regulate emissions. He said the term "global warming" makes the cause easy to ridicule whenever there's a snowstorm.

"Every time we're digging our cars out -- what global warming?" he said. "(Global climate disruption is) more of a sort of generic blanket term, I guess, that can apply in all weather conditions."

Thulsa Doom Obama Ignorning "Green" Jobs in New Stimulus

Duh! Even my young kids are able to see the futility of attempting to replace efficient oil--the current fuel of capitalism--with inefficient "green" substitutes like wind, solar power, electric cars, and goofy light bulbs. In a perfect world, it would be great to reduce our dependence on oil for a variety of reasons, most important of which is national security.

But the reality is that oil can't be replaced as efficiently given present technology, except for possibly nuclear energy that brings its own set of problems. We should be exploring new energy sources, but do we need to destroy capitalism to do so? If you're a liberal socialist, the answer is "hell yeah."

Of course, this could be Thulsa Doom's pathetic, late attempt to save himself and his party, which has seemingly already destroyed with his mini socialist revolution.

After months of hype about the potential for green energy to stimulate job growth and lead the economy out of a recession, the results turned out to be disappointing, if not dismal. About $92 billion - more than 11 percent - of Mr. Obama's original $814 billion of stimulus funds were targeted for renewable energy projects when the measure was pushed through Congress in early 2009.

Even some of the administration's liberal allies have expressed skepticism over the original stimulus package's use of green investments as a way to spur quick employment growth at home.

Scientists: U.N. Climate Panel Should Avoid Propaganda

Still reeling from all the climate scandals that have proved just what a bunch of crap manmade global warming is (much to the dismay of Bill Nye), scientists continue trying to save their own reputations and stop the moronic liberals among them from destroying science for political purposes.

(Reuters) - The U.N. climate panel should make predictions only when it has solid evidence and should avoid policy advocacy, scientists said in a report on Monday that called for thorough reform of the body.

The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was widely criticized after admitting its 2007 global warming report wrongly said Himalayan glaciers would vanish by 2035 and that it overstated how much of the Netherlands is below sea level.

Liberals Tell Gore 'Victim' to 'Suck It Up' To 'Save Planet'

Yes, by all means, Ma’am, please don’t tell the police. That will definitely lead to the world’s destruction by global warming.

See what absolute morons these alarmist people are?

Just for the record, police later found that there was not enough evidence to proceed.

"He pleaded, grabbed me, engulfed me in embrace, tongue kissed me, massaged me, groped by breasts and painfully squeezed my nipples through my clothing, pressed his pelvis against mine, rubbed my buttocks with his hands and fingers and rubbed himself against my crotch, saying, 'You know you want to do it.'"

Finally she got away. Later, she talked to friends, liberals like herself, who advised against telling police. One asked her "to just suck it up; otherwise, the world's going to be destroyed from global warming."

Major Error Leads to AGW Book Withdrawal

Interesting. Laurie David is the environmentalist psycho-woman recently implicated in the tabloids as having an affair with Al Gore, which allegedly led to Gore’s separation from his wife of 40 years, Tipper. No clue if that’s true, but David and Gore are good buddies and share the same warped, doomsday beliefs.

More and more people are rejecting this ridiculous global warming garbage. I recommend to all parents that you deprogram your children (as I’ve done with my own) when they come home with that global warming fear garbage scared into them by the socialist school teachers.

Also note how they’re going to stop using the hyperbolic DeCaprio video that blames “global warming” on man’s “addiction to oil.”

Millard Public Schools will stop using a children's book about global warming -- but only until the district can obtain copies with a factual error corrected.

A review committee, convened after parents complained, concluded that author Laurie David's book, "The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming," contained "a major factual error" in a graphic about rising temperatures and carbon dioxide levels.

Mark Feldhausen, associate superintendent for educational services, this week sent a letter to parents who complained, including the wife of U.S. Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska, outlining the committee's findings.

"Although the authors have pledged to correct the graph in subsequent editions, the committee recommends that this correction be made to all MPS-owned texts before using it with students in the future," Feldhausen wrote.

Corrected versions will continue to be used in Millard's sixth-grade language arts curriculum, he wrote.

However, the district will cease to use a companion video about global warming, narrated by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, he wrote.

The committee found the video "without merit" and recommended that it not be used.

Scientist Asks: Where Is Alarming Sea Level Rise?

Sir, the sea-level rise is up the alarmists' butts. That's where you can find it.

CHICAGO -- Global warming advocates say rising sea levels will soon drown Venice. But a top scientist says they're full of hot air -- and he says he’s got the data to prove it.

In a new scientific paper, Nils-Axel Morner, former emeritus head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden, says that observational records from around the world -- locations like the Maldives, Bangladesh, India, Tuvalu and Vanuatu -- show the sea level isn't rising at all.

Morner's research, revealed Monday at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, demonstrates that there is no “alarming sea level rise” across the globe, and it says a U.N. report warning of coastal cities being deluged by rising waters from melting polar ice caps “is utterly wrong.”

Beware Coming Chill, Scientist Warns

We've seen stories like this before. Of course, like most climate predictions, these could prove wrong too. It's just interesting that there is no REAL consensus.

Contrary to the commonly held scientific conclusion that the Earth is getting warmer, Dr. Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University and author of more than 150 peer-reviewed papers, has unveiled evidence for his prediction that global cooling is coming soon.

“Rather than global warming at a rate of 1 F per decade, records of past natural cycles indicate there may be global cooling for the first few decades of the 21st century to about 2030,” said Easterbrook, speaking on a scientific panel discussion with other climatologists. This, he says, will likely be followed by “global warming from about 2030 to 2060,” which will then be followed by another cooling spell from 2060 to 2090.

Easterbrook spoke before a group of about 700 scientists and government officials at the fourth International Conference on Climate Change. The conference is presented annually in Chicago by the Heartland Institute, a conservative nonprofit think tank that actively questions the theory of man's role in global warming. Last year the Institute published Climate Change Reconsidered, a comprehensive reply to the United Nations' latest report on climate change.

Huge, Honkin' Climategate Whitewash Blames U.N.

The "reviewers" admit that the CRU "may not have used the best methods" for analyzing temperatures and "failed to store its data and keep full records," but they say no lapses in integrity? What about all the emails conspiring to omit published research from skeptical scientists? What about the emails and computer designed to 'hide the decline'? Instead, the panel attempts to shift the blame solely on the IPCC for exaggeration. So, the alarmists have no resorted to finger-pointing to save their butts.

The scientific research into historical temperature records was misrepresented by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which failed to consider uncertainties the scientists had reported concerning the raw temperature data.

The inquiry panel of leading scientists, nominated by the Royal Society, said that the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit may not have used the best methods for analyzing temperature records. The Unit also failed to store its data and keep full records of exactly what it had done, preventing other scientists from checking all its findings.

Cows Off the Hook, Now

Looks like cows are NOW being given a reprieve as co-culprits of global warming (not really "co-" because humans farm and then eat the it's still OUR fault), whereas we were once told that Al Gore's cow-chomping tendencies were the ultimate in global warming hypocrisy (so many examples of Gore's hypocrisy from which to choose). LOL! The article implies that CO2 is the most potent greenhouse gas, and that's a lie. Methane is far more potent. Water vapor...yes, water the MOST potent greenhouse gas; CO2 is CHUMP-CHANGE compared to H2O.

I'm sure the EPA will declare H2O a public emergency soon.

"It's been generally assumed that if you increase livestock numbers you get a rise in emissions of nitrous oxide. This is not the case," he said.

Estimated nitrous oxide emissions from temperate grasslands in places like Inner Mongolia as well as vast swatches of the United States, Canada, Russia and China account for up a third of the total amount of the greenhouse gas produced every year. Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas after carbon dioxide and methane.

But Dr Butterbach-Bahl pointed out that the study did not take into account the methane produced by the livestock or the carbon dioxide produced if soil erodes. He also pointed out that much of the red meat eaten in the western world if from intensively farmed animals in southern countries.

He said the study does not overturn the case for cutting down on red meat but shows grazing livestock is not always bad for global warming.

Now We Have NASA-gate

Once again, we have to rely on Fox News and the British press to report these legitimate stories. Wonder why the lefty press is ignoring it? Hmmm? Anyone? Bueller?

Hansen's GISS at NASA is using the flawed data from another scandal (East Anglia) and thus making itself into another climate scandal. So, we now have three different but interrelated climate scandals: East Anglia's CRU (Climate-gate), U.N. IPCC's flawed climate report (too many "-gates" to mention), and now NASA's flawed climate data (based on CRU's climate data).

These morons represent the "consensus." The flaws are easy to see for anyone with a brain, but the Kool-Aid drinkers won't go quietly.

Not everyone is sipping the global warming Kool-Aid.

Concerns about the validity of NASA's climate research are being raised following revelations that the space agency admitted its data was less accurate than other weather trackers'. Disturbed by these reports, as well as the growing Climate-gate scandal that has left global-warming theorists reeling, Senators John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and David Vitter (R-La.) have written a letter to space agency chief Charles Bolden demanding answers.

"The American people deserve to learn the truth about the data," Barrasso told, stressing the risks of basing public policy on science that remains largely undecided.


The letter, expressing concern with NASA's newly revealed use of data from the East Anglia University's Climatic Research Unit, cites interviews with CRU's chief Phil Jones and programmer Ian "Harry" Harris, both of whom denigrated the quality of the CRU data. "No uniform data integrity, it's just a catalogue of issues that continues to grow as they're found. This whole project is SUCH A MESS," Harris reportedly commented.

NASA Climate Data Inferior to Climategate Data, Space Agency Says

So much for James Hansen's GISS data and the NOAA data that predicts gloom and doom on a monthly basis; we've already seen multiple instances where this data has been proven untrustworthy.

Scandal-ridden UEA CRU data is 'more accurate' than the data invalidated by the Climategate scandal.

It doesn't take a scientist to look at this mess and discern that it's nothing but a political propaganda campaign and witch hunt against all scientists not willing to go along with the imaginary "consensus."

NASA was able to put a man on the moon, but the space agency can't tell you what the temperature was when it did. By its own admission, NASA's temperature records are in even worse shape than the besmirched Climate-gate data.

E-mail messages obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that NASA concluded that its own climate findings were inferior to those maintained by both the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) -- the scandalized source of the leaked Climate-gate e-mails -- and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Center.

The e-mails from 2007 reveal that when a USA Today reporter asked if NASA's data "was more accurate" than other climate-change data sets, NASA's Dr. Reto A. Ruedy replied with an unequivocal no. He said "the National Climatic Data Center's procedure of only using the best stations is more accurate," admitting that some of his own procedures led to less accurate readings.

Climategate Scientists Cleared by One-Day Panel

Is anyone surprised by this? I predicted this long ago. The reputations of the university, scientists, and politicians involved are all on the line, should the information--the proof--that this manmade global warming is nothing but trumped up nonsense (because it is) becomes common knowledge. Millions in climate research grants are on the line, and the universities directly benefit from those grants.

Two more panels to go, but they'll reach the same conclusion, even though the humiliated Phil Jones of the CRU has more or less admitted that global warming hasn't happened in 15 years and that there were global warm periods that preceded the industrial age.

And this all preceded similar scandals with the U.N.'s IPCC, where Dr. Pachuri admitted fault and political hyperbole in its Nobel-winning report, the pseudo-science of which was directly fed by Jones' CRU at East Anglia. This is A SCAM. Nothing else. And Obama continues on...

More Professor Lovelock: We Can't Save the Planet

Though this guy obviously believes that man has warmed the climate with CO2 (dumb), he's at least smart enough to say that we're not at fault and there's nothing we can do to change anything (i.e., dumb AGW solutions). This article takes a different tone than the previous one. Amazing how different media outlets can paint such contrasting pictures using the same material.
