Hypocrite Gore Claims 8.6M; Reality: 17K

Fun to watch this idiot flop around like a fish out its climate-fear-sustaining water. The economy is in the toilet (remember, a lot of these liberals wanted just that to stop 'global warming'). Then the AP tried to do these liberals a favor once the recession hit by saying that--surprise, surprise--the recession had LOWERED warming!

One good byproduct of this lie is something liberal socialist idiots will never understand: Americans will only care about the environment when they have secure incomes, homes, wealth, etc. A poorer America may help the myth of global warming, but it also, ironically and thankfully, will kill expansion in the belief of the global warming religion!

Fewer and fewer believe the crap anymore, especially because they're already paying higher energy prices that have been artificially inflated to promote alternative energy and the Green Fad. And Obama's criminal push of government-subsidized alternate green energy is a bust (duh) and did NOT save the economy (duh).

The alarmist global warming movement is all but dead.

Not content with having invented the internet, the great Climate Science communicator Al Gore appears to have developed still more miraculous skills of late: the ability to turn 17,000 into 8.6 million – just like that.

The figures refer to the number of "views" for Gore's special "24 Hours Of ManBearPig" which this column helped celebrate the other day. Gore claims that as many as 8.6 million flocked to his thrilling festival of climate fear; but a nasty cruel man called Charles the Moderator at Watts Up With That? has "done the math" and reckons the figure is probably more like 17,000. And that, he believes, is a generous estimate. (H/T John from CA).

So whom are we to trust? An evil climate denying website run by evil climate deniers? Or a loving family man who has selflessly made it his mission to travel the world acquiring as large a carbon footprint as possible in order to spread the word that we should all drastically reduce our carbon footprints?

Solyndra Croaks; Thulsa Doom Wipes Egg Off Face

I've written before extensively in this blog about the Green Fad and silly, government-backed solutions to so-called global warming. Here's more proof that the bullshit IS NOT economically viable. Don't get me wrong…I'm all for alternative energy, simply as a means to reduce foreign energy dependence. My reasons have NOTHING to do with stopping climate change (that doesn't exist).

So, Obama tries to subsidize and back this hooey crap and it fails miserably. The global warming light bulbs and cars are failing too. It's all going to fail, because these 'solutions' are nothing more than boondoggles for a problem that is believed less and less by the public, no matter how much Al Gore whines.

Newly uncovered emails show the White House closely monitored the Energy Department's deliberations over a $535 million government loan to Solyndra, the politically-connected solar energy firm that recently went bankrupt and is now the subject of a criminal investigation.

Thulsa Doom Obama Halts Own Smog Rules

Looks like Obama wants to get re-elected now, plain and simple. I don't think that's happening, however. You've done far too much damage to the country with your liberal, elitist, Marx-loving social experimentation. That ivory tower academic shit doesn't work in real life.

Furthermore, how can he "overrule" an organization that was just acting on his direction in the first place? It's obvious the EPA was being used to shield him from criticism over the stupid global warming moves he was throwing onto our economy.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday scrapped his administration's controversial plans to tighten smog rules, bowing to the demands of congressional Republicans and some business leaders.

Obama overruled the Environmental Protection Agency — and the unanimous opinion of its independent panel of scientific advisers — and directed administrator Lisa Jackson to withdraw the proposed regulation to reduce concentrations of ground-level ozone, smog's main ingredient. The decision rests in part on reducing regulatory burdens and uncertainty for businesses at a time of rampant uncertainty about an unsteady economy.

Hurricane Irene and Computer Modeling

We all know how 'really smart' consensus scientists are telling us that we're at doom's door with respect to climate change; they use really sophisticated computer models to predict that in 18 months to 7 years to 8 years to 1000 years (all depends on the alarmist idiot to whom you listen), we're all going to be swimming in melted ice water, because we keep burning fossil fuels--the byproduct of which heats up the planet (they say).

Now consider something more manageable--a single storm, with FAR FEWER variables than an entire climate system. Computer models can't even get a single storm right. And hurricane season predictions have been even less accurate. So, are you going to believe stupid models, because models are only as good as the people who create them. The entire climate of the planet is FAR MORE COMPLEX than a single hurricane. And if someone has an agenda to support their theory, it's very easy to design the model to do whatever you want it to.

Instead of admitting that they screwed up on the intensity and overhyped the devastation and doom with respect to Hurricane Irene (which the media did in spades, by the way), the alarmists have already started blaming global warming for Irene (which was a creme puff of a storm unlike its predicted 'catastrophic intensity'). Saw that one coming from a mile away!

While forecasters have gotten better at estimating the trajectories of storms because the winds propelling them, known as steering currents, have gotten easier to predict with computer models, projecting intensity is driven by dozens of variables that make modeling more difficult, Clark said.

[From Irene Forecasters Missed Storm’s Intensity While Correctly Predicting Path - Bloomberg]

Hurricane Irene: Harbinger of Climate Change?

Of course, we all KNOW the real answer to this idiot's question. The answer is no…so called global warming is not causing or strengthening tropical cyclones. It's utter bullshit. Even NOAA admits it. But we see this story repeated with nearly every tropical weather disturbance; global warming is attributed as the cause. The reality is far more benign than they would have you believe.

So why do liberal morons in the media continue the hype? Because they're trying to prop up the global warming myth--a myth which is reeling under its own ridiculous weight. It's the same reason they attribute NEARLY EVERYTHING deemed bad to global warming; for the government to be granted more control by its citizens, there must be a collective perception of some threat. It's as simple as that.

The scale of Hurricane Irene, which could cause more extensive damage along the Eastern Seaboard than any storm in decades, is reviving an old question: are hurricanes getting worse because of human-induced climate change?

The short answer from scientists is that they are still trying to figure it out. But many of them do believe that hurricanes will get more intense as the planet warms, and they see large hurricanes like Irene as a harbinger.

Talk About a 'Bone Head': Brand Deniers!

This liberal lunatic starts off his piece by wanting to physically brand climate change 'deniers' and 'skeptics' the way that Nazis tatooed Jews during the Holocaust, an event in which many liberals these days no longer believe--secretly--happened, partly because they're Palestinian sympathizers who clandestinely loath Zionists, who are, ironically, very liberal in their politics. Weird, huh?

But, I digress. One is left wanting to ask (no pun intended) the question: Why does this author want to "Scarlet Letter" a group of people who question a semi-religious theory based on REAL scientific stipulations in which the alarmists simply dismiss (like this writer does)? What's the point of that? To make them targets of violence? To ostracize them? To make them targets of social discrimination and hate? This sort of thing isn't new when it comes to so-called deniers and the liberals who hate them.

You see, these climate alarmists are unhinged, left-learning people. The truly frightening part is that they're unaware that they're unhinged. This one starts off by wanting to DISCRIMINATE against a group of people based on their audacity to question the CONSENSUS. Branding human beings is a form of discrimination, but these liberals only accept discrimination when it fits their purposes, and then they attempt to hide their discrimination in new terminologies and paradigms to confuse the easily confusable among us.

On the other hand, these morons have NOT had their orthodoxy shaken one iota, even after all the countless scandals, empirical evidence, and scientific evidence to the contrary. All they have left is fear...and they continue trying to use it against the clueless masses.

Strange how the author is concerned about the planet we will leave our children and grandchildren while seemingly UNCONCERNED about the REAL, STINKING ECONOMY we're giving to them RIGHT NOW!!! And guess what? Green fad bull shit enacted for a trumped up lie WILL ONLY MAKE THE ECONOMY WORSE!!! But hey...that's what liberals wanted to cool the planet down, remember?

Surely it's time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

Not necessarily on the forehead; I'm a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ''Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?''

On second thoughts, maybe the tattooing along the arm is a bit Nazi-creepy. So how about they are forced to buy property on low-lying islands, the sort of property that will become worthless with a few more centimetres of ocean rise, so they are bankrupted by their own bloody-mindedness? Or what about their signed agreement to stand, in the year 2040, lashed to a pole at a certain point in the shallows off Manly? If they are right and the world is cooling - ''climate change stopped in the year 1998'' is one of their more boneheaded beliefs - their mouths will be above water. If not …


Aside from the frothing fringe of the environmental movement, no one is secretly pleased about global warming. We'd all rather it just went away. Who needs to feel guilty about having a long shower, flying to Paris or eating T-bone steak?Who needs to be worried about their children and grandchildren and the way we are pushing the burdens of our time on to them?

Greenhouse Gases Drop to 15-Yr Low

Remember when prominent liberals said that we needed to cool the U.S. economy to fight global warming?!? Weird how the mainstream liberal media doesn’t follow-up on those earlier proclamations, now that people are struggling in this limp economy. Why aren’t Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Browner, and other liberals all proclaiming their efforts at fighting climate change a success by the crippling of the U.S. economy through socialist policies? Hmmm? Anyone?

Thulsa Doom Obama is getting what he wanted. High fuel prices. Government dependence. Higher debt and deficits. But lower carbon emissions. This country is heading to hell.

In total, in 2009 emissions of the greenhouse gases, which are linked to climate change, were the equivalent of 6,640 metric tons of carbon dioxide, down from 7,062 metric tons in 2008 and a high of 7,265 metric tons in 2007. U.S. emissions in 2009 were more than 7% greater than 1990 levels, the report said.

Charles Manson: "We're Doing Bad Things to the Atmosphere"

All you need to know is that Charles Manson is Californian, a convicted murderer, and a global warming alarmist. Enough said. Don’t worry, Charlie. All alarmists ‘trail off’ in their ridiculous fear mongering.

'Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere.

'If we don’t change that as rapidly as I’m speaking to you now, if we don’t put the green back on the planet and put the trees back that we’ve butchered, if we don’t go to war against the problem...' he added, trailing off.

Unbelievable! NYTs: 'Green' Energy Increasing Fuel Prices, Hunger

Hard to believe, but the liberal NYTs is actually (FINALLY) saying the truth: the stupid, fruitless "green fad" is killing our country and the world FOR ZERO BENEFIT. It's WAY past time for the global warming myth to die.

But with food prices rising sharply in recent months, many experts are calling on countries to scale back their headlong rush into green fuel development, arguing that the combination of ambitious biofuel targets and mediocre harvests of some crucial crops is contributing to high prices, hunger and political instability.

CA Judge Halts Cap and Trade

Wow! Really?! Could someone involved in the government of California actually have a brain? I mean, I know some people who live in California who have brains...I even know some liberals out there with brains (who are just dimwits at politics and science). But one doesn't usually expect a government official--be they judge, congressman, or governor--to take too many conservative stances. It's "anything goes" out there on the left coast.

A San Francisco superior court judge has put California's sweeping plan to curb greenhouse gas pollution on hold, saying the state did not adequately evaluate alternatives to its cap-and-trade program.

In a 35-page decision, Judge Ernest H. Goldsmith said the Air Resources Board had failed to consider public comments on the proposed measures before adopting the plan, which affects a broad swath of the state's economy. In particular, the judge noted, officials gave short shrift to analyzing a carbon fee, or carbon tax, devoting a “scant two paragraphs to this important alternative” to a market-based trading system in their December 2008 plan.

Rick Perry: Death Knell Tolls for Climate Alarmists?

Since Rick Perry announced that he's running for President today to save us all from the socialist known as Thulsa Doom Obama, we can all delight that he may finally kill this ridiculous stupidity called climate change, which is being used as a vehicle to create--yet even more--expensive government solutions.

Perry calls global warming "all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight." Unlike many of the other GOP presidential candidates, he hasn't expressed concern about climate change in the past, so he won't have to do any back-pedaling. Notorious climate denier Marc Morano is a big fan: "Based on climate views alone, anyone who is holding their nose voting for Mitt Romney because there's no other viable candidate will now rejoice to have an option with Rick Perry."

Doh! Here they are trying to blame the summer heat (and everything else) on global warming and this pesky story shows up.

March 2011 ended up as the coolest March globally since March of 1994. The actual global temperature anomaly for the lower troposphere last month was negative 0.026 C. This is also the first month since June of 2008 that the global temperature anomaly was in the negative.

Obama's Global Warming Cars Aren't Selling

Why aren't Obama's global warming cars selling? Because they suck, they're too expensive, and global warming is a pseudo-scientific myth.

Peruse Chevrolet's February sales release, and you'll notice one number that's blatantly missing: how many Chevy Volts were sold. The number – a very modest 281 – is available in the company's detailed data (PDF), but it apparently isn't something that GM wants to highlight. Keeping the number quiet is understandable, since it's lower than the 321 that Chevy sold in January.

GASP!: Sixth Mass Extinction In Progress!

It's been awhile since we last saw an extinction story attributed to 'evil capitalist transgressors,' but here you go...right on cue from the lefty media. Along side the Yucatan impact event that did in the dinosaurs comes the sixth mass extinction event: Capitalism's evil use of oil to create and bring products to market has pushed us over the edge. Soon, the entire Earth will be devoid of life, thanks to your love of computers, video games, automobiles, fast food, and other things that affluent western capitalists love. Aren't you ashamed of yourself? Karl Marx, Chairman Mao, and Che Guevara would be very displeased.

If you need some more climate fear, check out the GASP! series and/or Dr. Brignell's warmlist.

But the new threat is man-made, inflicted by habitation loss, over-hunting, over-fishing, the spread of germs and viruses and introduced species, and by climate change caused by fossil-fuel greenhouse gases, says the study.

Evidence from fossils suggests that in the "Big Five" extinctions, at least 75 percent of all animal species were destroyed.

NPR: Deniers are like 'Birthers' and 'Flat Earthers'

Liberals at NPR are still at it, but they're so smug and arrogant that they can't see that their stupid f'ing argument works in reverse. A climate change "denier" could say that BELIEVING in climate change is tantamount to believing Obama wasn't born in the U.S. or that the Earth is flat. Are you guys really this goony?

And this whole "all educated scientists accept that climate change as fact" is full of crap. First, isn't it an oxymoron to call scientists "educated"? Aren't all scientists, by definition, educated? Secondly, there are THOUSANDS--REPEAT--THOUSANDS of "educated" scientists who DO NOT BELIEVE THIS BULLSHIT. It's all politics, plain and simple. Yes, climate change that occurs on Mother Nature's calendar is real. Anthropogenic global warming IS NOT REAL. It never was real.

"We're not covering the birthers. We are not covering them. There's a whole movement within the conservative group about questioning something that Obama has said as fact, 'I was born in Hawaii, when it was the United States.' The group that questions this, some of whom are commentators...I don't know any who are Democrats, but they are primarily conservative commentators and people who follow them question if Obama is [a citizen]," she further explains.

"I think the challenge in our society now is that we are questioning facts. It's not opinions we are debating. I mean, what are the facts? Is the world flat? Is that the next question we're going to debate?" Ms. Liley wonders.

Mr. Schiller chimes in later saying, "The main point here is that it is not our responsibility to present the opinion of a non-scientist through our science desk. All educated scientists accept that climate change as fact. On the political side, however, where it is not accepted as fact, and the fact that debate is happening is news and it's really important news. And our point of view requires that we cover that debate, if for no other reason than to have Americans understand there are still people who believe that it is not fact."

Nuclear War to Stop Warming?

So, exactly what are these clowns saying? Are they proposing a small nuclear war as a solution that will 'reverse global warming' (which doesn't even exist, or are they saying (for the first time) that nuclear war is a way for man to actually change the climate? Nuclear war is one of the few ways man could actually alter the climate (for a short time); CO2 IS NOT a way man can significantly alter the climate, even for a short time (or definitely not a LONG time as they're saying).

For the record, I'm thoroughly shocked that the majority of National Geographic Channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks!!

Earth is currently in a long-term warming trend. After a regional nuclear war, though, average global temperatures would drop by 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) for two to three years afterward, the models suggest.

Global Weirding? They Can't Back That Up

At first we were told that anthropogenic global warming was a result of man's CO2 emissions and that we'd see less and less snow and ice. Ice would melt and raise the sea levels, flooding cities. Then, when it was obvious that empirical data showed we were actually cooling more than warming, they said that dynamic weather variability was the result of manmade 'climate change.' Another group said that global warming was merely being 'masked' by the La Nina effect; that was why we were experiencing cooler summers and winters. Dynamic weather referred to anything deemed 'unusual,' such that a blizzard or freezing temperatures would give the same support to the renamed 'climate change' as a would a heat wave or tornado outbreak. I call these sudden grasps at explaining non-correlating empirical data CLIMATE REVISIONISM.

Somewhere in the midst of the mounting empirical evidence to the contrary, climate scandal upon climate scandal erupted. Interested powers tried to put the genie back in the bottle, but it was too late.

As the public continued to reject the idea of manmade global warming or climate change, Thulsa Doom Obama decided to go with the new moniker of 'global climate disruption.' And most recently, the term 'global weirding' came into vogue. No matter what alias they use, it still all comes down to an indictment of capitalism as the driving force behind a climate gone mad. Americans aren't buying it, and neither are Europeans. The rat radar is up and detecting something foul.

Last week a severe storm froze Dallas under a sheet of ice, just in time to disrupt the plans of the tens of thousands of (American) football fans descending on the city for the Super Bowl. On the other side of the globe, Cyclone Yasi slammed northeastern Australia, destroying homes and crops and displacing hundreds of thousands of people.

Some climate alarmists would have us believe that these storms are yet another baleful consequence of man-made CO2 emissions. In addition to the latest weather events, they also point to recent cyclones in Burma, last winter's fatal chills in Nepal and Bangladesh, December's blizzards in Britain, and every other drought, typhoon and unseasonable heat wave around the world.

But is it true? To answer that question, you need to understand whether recent weather trends are extreme by historical standards. The Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project is the latest attempt to find out, using super-computers to generate a dataset of global atmospheric circulation from 1871 to the present.

As it happens, the project's initial findings, published last month, show no evidence of an intensifying weather trend. "In the climate models, the extremes get more extreme as we move into a doubled CO2 world in 100 years," atmospheric scientist Gilbert Compo, one of the researchers on the project, tells me from his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder. "So we were surprised that none of the three major indices of climate variability that we used show a trend of increased circulation going back to 1871."

Patronage Alive-and-Well with EPA Rules

Thulsa Doom Obama--in true Chicago-thug fashion--is sidestepping Congress and using the EPA to institute global warming governance, which will harm the economy even more than it's already harmed. Just as Obama has issued many 'exemptions' for Obamacare to select unions and other supportive entities, he's going to do the same with the EPA rules that will harm other businesses. It's strong-arm politics designed to get the one with the strong arm what he wants. In this case, the Chicago thug is obvious.

Maybe GE CEO Jeff Immelt's closeness to President Obama, and his broad support for Obama's agenda, had nothing to do with this exemption. But we have no way of knowing that, and given the administration's record of regularly misleading Americans regarding lobbyists, frankly, I wouldn't trust the White House if they told me there was no connection.

Obama Caught in Record Winter Storm

Another record-breaking winter (the last several winters have been extremely cold, icy, snowy, miserable, and deadly). These winters have followed cool summers too, though you'll always find a news story proclaiming whatever year it is to be 'the hottest ever.' Yet, the liberal indoctrinators continue the hue and cry about climate "denialists," even after numerous climatology scandals and empirical evidence surface to demonstrate the complete, utter failure and dishonesty of manmade global warming theory and its proponents. The boondoggle has been exposed long ago.

Of course, the global warming alarmists, the faithful, and the zealots will continue to say that the record cold PROVES global warming is real. Just like record heat PROVES global warming. Record ANYTHING to them PROVES global warming. It’s all bullshit. Empirical data proves nothing except that this is one muddy picture, and that’s just the way alarmists like it. The easier it is to snow (no pun intended) the more intellectually challenged among us, the easier for them to consolidate social and political controls to reshape society in the way they deem “Earth friendly.” Capitalism is rejected and socialism is embraced in a clandestine way.

New York City and Philadelphia are just two of the communities across the mid-Atlantic that broke daily snowfall records on Wednesday. For a more elite group that includes New York City, this month is now the snowiest January in history.

Relevant Global Mean Temperatures

Fantastic blog and post by one of the 'skeptical' scientists that liberals say don't exist. He's talking about the urban island effect and its influence on global mean temperature increases that have the 'consensus' shitting their pants (or, more truthfully, taking us all for a ride). Take a minute and read this...

After having digitized the old data and after a few subtle statistical manipulations, one of their conclusions is that the airport in Nairobi, Kenya gives the dominant warming signal in the most well-known surface temperature datasets. This confirms the familiar warming influence of tarmac and other urban achievements.

Unleash the Lawyers of Climate Change

What always follows junk science and stupid politics? Lawyers and lawsuits, of course. After all, most politicians are blood-sucking lawyers. Need to find something that stinks? Just follow the rats surrounding it.

Thankfully, truth is winning out and this garbage has been exposed for the boondoggle that it is.

PARIS — From being a marginal and even mocked issue, climate-change litigation is fast emerging as a new frontier of law where some believe hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake.

Compensation for losses inflicted by man-made global warming would be jaw-dropping, a payout that would make tobacco and asbestos damages look like pocket money.
Imagine: a country or an individual could get redress for a drought that destroyed farmland, for floods and storms that created an army of refugees, for rising seas that wiped a small island state off the map.

GASP!: Global Warming to Cause 'Cataclysmic Super Storm'

Yep...another disaster prediction issued by warming alarmists. Throw it on the pile. Except this one gives no specific date or date range; it's just that we're 'overdue,' especially due to 'rising atmospheric temperatures.' (Which aren't rising, by the way...) It's all a bunch of bunk.

Here's one thing I will guarantee you: We will ALWAYS have unusual weather events, because weather is unpredictable and REAL climate change is unstoppable (and NOT caused by capitalism). This is why North Africa is now a desert (normal, cyclical climate change on the Earth). Almanacs and historical accounts have long recorded unusual, record-breaking weather and climate events. That will continue. Even if we enacted every stupid global warming solution that liberals have dreamed up, the weather and climate will still behave in an oblivious fashion. We're mere gnats on this Great Earth.

Get more fear in the GASP! series and warmlist, you kooks.

It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.

The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.

The risk is gathering momentum now, scientists say, due to rising temperatures in the atmosphere, which has generally made weather patterns more volatile.

Lawmakers Seek to Stop Climate Probe as ‘Significant Error’ Revealed

Interesting to see these two stories on the same day. On one hand (continuing the recent, lengthy series of scandal-ridden ‘scientific’ revelations), activist climatologists are forced (again) to admit their errors that, of course, originally erred on the side of supporting manmade warming. On the other hand, activist politicians are trying to block efforts by other politicians to investigate just such scandals, perpetrated by just such activist scientists.

But we’re supposed to still believe this nonsense amid all of the scandals and empirical evidence to the contrary or risk being labeled as ‘deniers’ or some other equally silly social insult. Amazing how this group is able to set the agenda for what’s politically correct in terms of childish name-calling.

If you still believe in this, the tooth fairy will be coming to visit you soon too.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – A climate change study that projected a 2.4 degree Celsius increase in temperature and massive worldwide food shortages in the next decade was seriously flawed, scientists said Wednesday.

The study was posted on the website of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and was written about by numerous international news agencies, including AFP.
But AAAS later retracted the study as experts cited numerous errors in its approach.

"A reporter with The Guardian alerted us yesterday to concerns about the news release submitted by Hoffman & Hoffman public relations," said AAAS spokeswoman Ginger Pinholster in an email to AFP.

"We immediately contacted a climate change expert, who confirmed that the information raised many questions in his mind, too. We swiftly removed the news release from our Web site and contacted the submitting organization."

Even after all the empirical and actual evidence (not to mention scandals), the elitist kooks out there--propagandizing under a veil they call "science"--refuse to acknowledge that their little demonize-CO2 escapade has failed. No one--except for liberal elitists--is falling for the BS any longer.

This blog has covered numerous dire climate predictions in just three short years, ranging from 18 months (Prince Charles) to now 1000 years. Of course, we've seen that the dingbat known as Prince Charles was proven wrong so early that he had to modify his 18-month prediction a few times; I have no idea upon what authority he feels he can make predictions and be taken seriously...but the media sure takes him seriously.

But there have been many predictions from so-called knowledgeable scientists. So, who's right? Which one of these geniuses do we believe? Are Americans really this stupid? Our history is full of idiot religious leaders prophesying the end times, which never came to pass. In my opinion, there's no difference between these religious zealots and the climate zealots. Climate change is the new religion, and it DEMANDS faith from its followers.

Even if humans stop producing excess carbon dioxide in 2100, the lingering effects of global warming could span the next millennia. The results? By the year 3000, global warming would be more than a hot topic - the West Antarctic ice sheet could collapse, and global sea levels would rise by about 13 feet (4 meters), according to a new study.

Using a computer model, researchers looked at two scenarios - an end to humans' industrial carbon dioxide emissions by 2010 and by 2100 - stretched out to the year 3000.

Even if humans were to stop emitting excess carbon dioxide - or if they figured out a way to completely capture it - the effects of global warming would continue to accumulate. That's because previously emitted carbon dioxide lingers in the atmosphere and the oceans, unlike land, warm only gradually, according to one of the study researchers, Shawn Marshall, an associate professor of geography at the University of Calgary.

Flashback: Gore Said Snow and Ice Disappearing a Year Ago

Now what does Al Gore say (after the record winters of the last few years)? Oh, he says that is caused by warming too. See the stupidity yet? No matter what happens, they'll say it's caused by manmade global warming. That way they can cram there government regulations and taxes down our throats to 'save us.'

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 14, 2009 (ENS) - Snow and ice across the planet are melting much faster than anticipated, and the cryosphere - the Earth's ice and snow cover - is very vulnerable to climate change, finds a new report presented today at the United Nations Climate Summit by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Snow cover is diminishing, and glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps are melting rapidly, with the greatest reductions in the Andes and the Rockies, the report shows.

HONOLULU, Hawaii -- After failing to get climate-change legislation through Congress, the Obama administration plans on pushing through its environmental policies through other means, and Republicans are ready to put up a fight.

On Jan. 2, new carbon emissions limits will be put forward as the Environmental Protection Agency prepares regulations that would force companies to get permits to release greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.

Climatologists Urge Chinese-Style Dictatorship

I have been so ridiculed here on my own blog for ever considering the 'conspiratorial' notion that liberal types (including MOST most professors in any university will identify as liberals) want to harm capitalism and replace it with some form of socialism, using global warming as the means to finally get that done (because 'they're trying to save the planet,' remember?).

Well here you go, morons. We've seen how NASA's global warming activist, James Hansen, has openly called for socialism. This clown is not a scientist, because real scientists stick to science and leave the politics to politicians. Here's more of the same. Liberals--for whatever fucking reason--love tyrants like Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, and Che Guevara. They think--stupidly--that if America was like these failed communist states (or had leaders like these idiots and murderers) then all the world would be right and the Earth would 'cool.'

Don't believe me? Many prominent liberals have called for a slower economy to fight global warming. Well, now we have a slower economy and it's very cold. I guess it worked, LOL!

The nation's most prominent publicly funded climatologist is officially angry about this, blaming democracy and citing the Chinese government as the "best hope" to save the world from global warming. He also wants an economic boycott of the U.S. sufficient to bend us to China's will.

NASA laboratory head James Hansen's anti-democracy rants were published while he was on a November junket in China, but they didn't get much attention until recently. On Jan. 12, the hyperprolific blogger Marc Morano put them on his Climate Depot site, and within hours, the post went viral. In a former life, Mr. Morano was chief global-warming researcher for Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican.

According to Mr. Hansen, compared to China, we are "the barbarians" with a "fossil-money- 'democracy' that now rules the roost," making it impossible to legislate effectively on climate change. Unlike us, the Chinese are enlightened, unfettered by pesky elections. Here's what he blogged on Nov. 24:

Animal Death Watch: Record Cold Endangers Sea Life?

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. The Animal Death Watch series has almost exclusively focused on living things dying or going extinct because of 'warming,' but here's a proven, real-world example of animals dying from exposure. More extinction stupidity at Dr. Brignell's warmlist page.

Thousands of dead starfish that littered a beach near Charleston last weekend are the first signs of what might become a disastrous winter for coastal sea life. They died because water was chilled to a lethal temperature by frigid weather earlier this month.

With coastal waters already hovering near critical lows, biologists worry there might be a mass die-off of shrimp, sea trout and red drum as the season turns cold again.

William Gay, owner of Port Royal Seafood, said he has heard Beaufort crab trappers talk about dead shrimp showing up in their crab pots, but said the cold water hasn't yet affected his business.

Senator Belittling Cow Fart Research Lambasted

Thank the Almighty we have legislators willing to stand up to stupidity when they see it. Cow fart research is just plain stupid and is nothing more than politics. But what about the scientist who said there was no link?

Among those projects was a $700,000 grant from the Department of Agriculture to a team of environmental scientists at the University of New Hampshire to study greenhouse gas emissions – the chemicals associated with global warming – in the dairy industry.

Coburn's "Wastebook" quotes one of the project's researchers telling a local New Hampshire paper that "cows emit most of their methane through belching, only a small fraction from flatulence."

Schwarzenegger, the Clima-nator

Schwarzen-a-hole really let the lefties out in California work him over. He started off as a fiscal conservative with half a brain but ended up more left-leaning than John McCain or Lindsey Graham (and those schmucks are pretty left-leaning). I ask you to just remember this clown's hypocrisy, as he drives around in his gas-guzzling Hummers. All of these liberal politicians are hypocrites when it comes to their own personal behavior's 'effect on warming.'

Schwarzenegger, who counts legislation combating global warming as one of his signature achievements in office, suggested he might be interested in a post dealing with energy or the environment.

"I'm a big believer in environmental issues," Schwarzenegger said, who added that he wanted a post where he could use his "celebrity power … knowledge and experience" to impact public policy. "I've traveled the world. … I'm very familiar with the world."

It's not a far-fetched idea. Obama has often mentioned Schwarzenegger as someone he's like to have in the Cabinet, citing his work on climate change. For months, there have been rumors in Washington that the former action star might join the administration as a climate change czar or as an adviser on energy and the environment. The White House has repeatedly declined to comment on personnel issues.

Oft-right Soothsayer: Ice Age Coming

Of course, this prediction could be as flawed as all the recent warming predictions and the 1970s ice age predictions. But this person isn't the first to utter an antithetical prediction of late, and it certainly is cold outside.

He seems to get it right about 85 per cent of the time and serious business people - notably in farming - are starting to invest in his forecasts. In the eyes of many punters, he puts the taxpayer-funded Met Office to shame. How on earth does he do it? He studies the Sun.

He looks at the flow of particles from the Sun, and how they interact with the upper atmosphere, especially air currents such as the jet stream, and he looks at how the Moon and other factors influence those streaming particles.

He takes a snapshot of what the Sun is doing at any given moment, and then he looks back at the record to see when it last did something similar. Then he checks what the weather was like on Earth at the time - and he makes a prophecy.

Dec 2010, Cancun: Temps Drop to 100-yr Low!

An older story, but a goodie. How many times have we seen ironic stories like this that plague the alarmist faithful?

The irony: As negotiators from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun to strategize ways to keep the planet from getting hotter, the temperature in the seaside Mexican city plunged to a 100-year record low of 54° F. Climate-change skeptics are gleefully calling Cancun's weather the latest example of the "Gore Effect" — a plunge in temperature they say occurs wherever former Vice President Al Gore, now a Nobel Prize-winning environmental activist, makes a speech about the climate. Although Gore is not scheduled to speak in Cancun, "it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival," jokes former NASA scientist Roy W. Spencer.

WikiLeaks: US Manipulated Copenhagen

Surprised? I think not. Global warming (or whatever you want to call it now to fit reality) morphed into worldwide politics and trapped the grant-seeking climatologists along with it. See how the liberals in our government used underhanded diplomacy to force other nations into our line of thinking? Chicago politics gone global.

Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.

The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.

Climate Revisionism and the Church of Warming

When was the last time you ever thought you'd see liberal-leaning types defend a flawed theory much the way that conservative religious zealots defend their sometimes fanatical religious practices?

Global warming (including all of its many aliases--climate change, AGW, global climate disruption, etc.) has turned into a religion of the left. It has many of the hallmarks of a cult-like religion: the now discredited 'Bible of Warming'...the IPCC reports; the scandal-ridden professional prognosticators of the CRU, IPCC, and NASA (think Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker, and many others ); the Climate Inquisition known as the "Consensus," which would love to destroy any professional scientist who dares to speak a contrary word; the coming 'Climate Armageddon,' featuring the end-times as a result of the world's love of capitalism; the 'Climate Anti-Christ,' which would be anyone of prominence coming out against global warming; the 'Climate Messiah,' which is none other than Al Gore (no disrespect intended to the real Christ of two millennia ago); a 'Climate Holy Spirit' in the form of the Green Fad that is currently ongoing (including forms of 'Climate Redemption' such as dumb global warming solutions); religious articles of faith and holy relics, such as ice cores, tree rings, and urban-island temperature measurements; predictions of things to come (simply moved forward in time when they don't come to pass...just like real religious zealots); the demand for unquestioning faith of its followers; and the false prophets and me, for example. These are all elements of religion that global warming--as a political movement--now possesses.

Given that much of the 'evidence' and most 'predictions' have been exposed as bogus or just plain WRONG, you'd think it would shake the faith of climate alarmists. What occurs is that the believers REVISE predictions and expectations based on the exposed flaws of past predictions (think 'loss of snow and ice' and 'increased hurricanes'...which have been failed predictions). This is exactly what's done in religion today; this is what's done by those who love Nostradamus--make reality fit the template (i.e., make the square peg fit the round hole). Everything is REVISED to fit the template. I call it 'Climate Revisionism.' It's the reason that believers want to cast away the term 'global warming' for 'climate change' or 'global climate disruption.' That way, they can't be wrong. Any weather or climate phenomenon deemed 'unusual' can be used to fit the template, whether associated with winter (cold), summer (heat and cyclones), or somewhere in-between (thunderstorms and tornadoes).

This is a big problem for those who see human-caused global warming as an irreversible result of the Industrial Revolution's reliance on carbon-based fuels. Based on global warming theory — and according to official weather forecasts made earlier in the year — this winter should be warm and dry. It's anything but. Ice and snow cover vast parts of both Europe and North America, in one of the coldest Decembers in history.

A cautionary tale? You bet. Prognosticators who wrote the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, global warming report in 2007 predicted an inevitable, century-long rise in global temperatures of two degrees or more. Only higher temperatures were foreseen. Moderate or even lower temperatures, as we're experiencing now, weren't even listed as a possibility.

Since at least 1998, however, no significant warming trend has been noticeable. Unfortunately, none of the 24 models used by the IPCC views that as possible. They are at odds with reality.

Empirically Frigid February

Yeah, I know, I warming is causing all this record-setting, deadly cold. (My ass...)

If colder-than-normal temperatures continue into February, this winter could possibly set records for the coldest winter ever in some parts of Georgia. Record low temperatures were set at Macon, Savannah and Alma Jan. 14. Macon reported 16 degrees, breaking the old record of 19 degrees set that date in 1970. Savannah and Alma reported 18 degrees, surpassing the old records of 20 degrees set at both locations in 1964.

[From Georgia eyes coldest winter ever | Freeze Damage content from Southeast Farm Press]

The average temperature in January 2011 was 30.0 F. This was -0.8 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 37th coolest January in 117 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.


The fresh snow was especially troublesome in Tulsa, Okla., where many roads were still impassable from last week's record 14-inch snowfall. The previous storm kept students out of school for at least six days. Mail, bus and trash service were only recently restored.

Five more inches of snow fell Wednesday in Tulsa, according to the National Weather Service. That raised the city's total for the winter to 25.9 inches, breaking the previous seasonal record of 25.6 inches, set during the winter of 1923-24.

PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – The demand for electricity could reach record high levels on Thursday morning, as temperatures reach a record low. Many people across North Texas will be struggling to stay warm. This means that rolling power outages could potentially return.

As cold temperatures rolled into the Metroplex last week, and the entire area was covered under a blanket of snow and ice, people became enraged when their power went out. The high demand for electricity late last week forced the Electric Reliability Council of Texas to coordinate rolling outages. This process, called load-shedding, is designed to take strain off of the state’s electric grid.

[From North Texas Could See More Rolling Blackouts « CBS Dallas / Fort Worth]

In fact, some temperatures across the state Thursday morning were lower than the North Pole which was a balmy 16 degrees.

In Bartlesville, the temperature reached 28 degrees below 0, an all-time record for Oklahoma. It also sets an all-time record for the city.

The previous state record was -27 in Watts in 1930 and -27 in Vinita in 1909.

AGW Scientist: Prove Global Warming DOESN'T Exist!

In another climate science attempt to turn acceptable statistical practices in science upside-down, they now want to use a reverse null hypothesis on us 'skeptics.' What would Carl Sagan say?

Trenberth is the Climategate scientist who wrote the email stating: "The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t." That statement--strictly violating the stipulations in Carl Sagan's Baloney Detection Kit--brings a whole host of other questions that I won't get into at this time very deeply. Questions like: "Didn't you guys say that the cooling is being caused by the warming?" (or) "I thought you guys said the El Nino and La Nina effects are masking global warming?" In fact, Trenberth is bluntly stating the truth to his colleagues; Mother Nature is NOT following their template, and they have no real explanation why. They've so fallen in love with their pet theory that they're attempting to dodge-and-parry any legitimate criticism to protect this politically-correct, pseudo-religious climate zealotry.

Now, he wants to reverse long-honored scientific principles, such that "deniers" and "skeptics" must PROVE that global warming DOES NOT exist, instead of he and his colleagues having to prove that it DOES EXIST. Bizarre huh? Scientists who are so enamored with their pet theories that they're willing to toss scientific convention aside in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Proves what I've said all along. Global warming is BS and it's being propped up by liberal dopes who KNOW it's BS for the sake of advancing socialism and harming capitalism.

What Eschenbach focuses on, though, is Trenberth’s absurd demand that the “null hypothesis” on AGW theory be reversed. That is, instead of having to prove AGW exists, what people should now be required to prove that it doesn’t exist. (!)


Eschenbach goes on to offer a long list of things climate ’scientists’ should do if they’re ever to be taken seriously again:

Stop avoiding public discussion and debate of your work.
Stop secretly moving the pea under the walnut shells.
Enough with the scary scenarios, already.
Speak out against scientific malfeasance whenever and wherever you see it.
Stop re-asserting the innocence of you and your friends.

We Freeze Because It's Too Warm?

Oh, I see, professor. The climate is becoming more 'dynamic' because of manmade greenhouse gases. But what about when your climatology brothers said that future snows would be a 'rare and exciting event'? You guys want it both ways; and we're all just NOT that dumb.

But before we write off our current cold snap as the British weather playing its usual tricks, we still need to explain why the Arctic high pressure has strayed so far south. And here, says Prof Maslin, is the more likely, and more subtle, link with climate change. "For me," he says, "this shows that the climate is becoming more dynamic, and thus large shifts in the wind patterns are possible – in this case, sub-tropical air being trapped further south than usual."

In other words, we need to remember that while the average temperature is rising, climate change also delivers more extreme weather, from chills to heatwaves. Today, we're stocking up on snowshoes – but best to invest in some air-conditioning as well.

Warming's Rotten Corpse

Older article...but it's the climate party for which NO ONE showed. The scam is dead. Rest in pieces, scam.

Scams die hard, but eventually they die, and when they do, nobody wants to get close to the corpse. You can get all the hotel rooms you want this week in Cancun.

The global-warming caravan has moved on, bound for a destination in oblivion. The United Nations is hanging the usual lamb chop in the window this week in Mexico for the U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, but the Washington guests are staying home. Nobody wants to get the smell of the corpse on their clothes.

Everybody who imagined himself anybody raced to Copenhagen last year for the global-warming summit, renamed "climate change" when the globe began to cool, as it does from time to time.

Scientists: Some Sea Levels 'Could Fall'

Interesting read from someone who still espouses global warming as reality. Even they admit the doomsday predictions are WRONG.

The incorrect belief that ocean water is evenly distributed lives on in the debate over climate change, says Stammer. The rising sea level is widely viewed as the most threatening consequence of global warming. Images of Bangladeshis wading through floodwaters are a favorite horror scenario used by some environmentalists. "But people act as if the water from melting glaciers were distributed as uniformly in the oceans as the water in our bathtubs at home," says Stammer.

But the reality is counter-intuitive. According to the most recent estimates, the sea level is expected to rise by about 1 meter (3.28 feet) -- on average -- in the next 100 years. This is the number that will be mentioned again and again during negotiations at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico over the next two weeks. "But this average value doesn't really help coastal planners," says Stammer.

Global Warming (Climate Change) Now 'Global Weirding'

As I predicted long ago, the new tactic--now that climate predictions continue to FAIL--will be to call anything that happens 'global warming.' In other words, the warming climate is causing all unusual weather events. But I have news for you psychos out there; we have hundreds of years of written accounts of 'unusual' weather and climate events, dating back to the global floods of ancient times (not to mention the Medieval Warm Period...a time that alarmists don't want you to bring up).

This bullshit is such a complete and utter farce. It's a failed government power grab. Interesting that Europeans seem to be awakening from their stupor far faster than we are.

So then the mantra became “climate change.” The liberals formerly known as “warmists” began predicting that we would experience fundamental changes in our weather. Scientists at the University of East Anglia — the Harvard of climate change — said snow would be “a very rare and exciting event.” Children wouldn’t know what it was.

As for summers, in the wake of Katrina “change-ist” groups like predicted “global warming will make hurricanes even worse in the future.”

What happened? Nothing. Europe has had three winters in a row of snow and cold temperatures. In the Atlantic, “there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of hurricanes in the last five years,” according to meteorologist Art Horn. “The total energy in all hurricanes around the world has plunged since 1993. The opposite of what was predicted.”

So the new fall back is “global weirding.” The site has a “Weird Weather Watch” page. The uber-liberal Huffington Post ran a story in August headlined “Global Weirding”: Extreme Climate Events Dominate The Summer.”

With Bulb Ban, Prices Skyrocket on AGW Bulbs

Apart from the deadly mercury these new, stupid, unpleasant global warming bulbs possess, they're (predictably) raising prices after the older, cheaper, better bulbs were banned. Any surprise that this liberal stupidity generated more expense for the masses? This is what awaits us if the government moves in and forces us to abide by ridiculous laws and regulations to halt something that IS NOT HAPPENING!!!! This is just like Prohibition; it's doomed because the masses will reject it.

Retailers also claim bulbs that currently cost only 33p are expected to sell for more than £1 within three months. Some will cost £3 or more.

The move comes as Britain is gearing up to phase out the last incandescent light bulbs in an effort to meet climate change targets.

The EU has already banned shops from buying stocks of 100watt bulbs and stopped them stocking up on any type of frosted incandescent bulbs.

Enviro-nuts Try to Prop Up Global Warming with Sex

If this doesn't tell you how doomed this cult is then nothing will. When the nutjobs start trying to "shock" you into believing their bullshit using nudes and blood (and I argue that they've been trying to shock us for years into believing), that's when you know the death knell is sounding for manmade climate calamities as a mythological tool to advance socialism.

Need more proof that these psychos have been making ridiculous claims for years to scare people? Read our GASP! series or Dr. Brignell's warmlist to get an accurate picture of the media hype.

Environmentalists and scientists are concerned about the massive drop in public interest in the topic over the last year. Now they are looking for new strategies to turn the tide. They're searching for so-called "mind bombs" -- highly emotional images that reduce a complex problem down to one core message.

Some environmental organizations are placing their bets on the shock factor. One commercial in a campaign by the British-based environmental organization 10:10 showed a teacher blowing up two students who were skeptical about cutting their carbon emissions, with fountains of blood spraying the others in the class. Other 10:10 videos have the same fate befalling recalcitrant office workers and footballers. But the campaign proved a dud -- it sparked massive protests and was quickly withdrawn.

Average 2010 Temp 1 Deg Below "Normal"

Amazing. NOAA (and their buddies at NASA) always try to play the manmade climate change game, but read the last paragraph too. I've bolded the most interesting parts.

The main culprit behind the cold temperatures in December 2010 was the same one which caused the cold winter of 2009-2010; a strongly negative North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and Arctic Oscillation (AO). When these atmospheric oscillations are in the strong negative phase, they essentially “flip” the weather pattern across North America, with upper-level high pressure and relative warmth over Greenland and Northeastern Canada and upper-level low pressure and cold over the eastern Continental United States, including Florida (Figure 1). This pattern forces the jet stream to plunge south from northern Canada into the southeastern U.S., transporting Arctic air masses into Florida.


As mentioned above, South Florida experienced its hottest summer on record in 2010 (with the exception of Naples which recorded its second hottest recorded summer). Despite the record hot summer, average yearly temperatures at the main climate sites will end up around 1 degree below normal, which will be the coolest calendar year since the early and mid 1980s, and among the top 10 on record (except for Miami). At secondary sites Miami Beach and Moore Haven, it was the coolest year on record (please note caveat below table).

Ten Ships Trapped in Arctic Sea Ice

Oh yeah...that arctic sea ice certainly is disappearing at an alarming rate. Tell that to these poor souls.

Rescue efforts are under way to evacuate more than 600 crew on 10 ships trapped in ice in the Sea of Okhotsk.

The ice is up to 30cm (12 inches) thick in some places, according to the Russian news agency Itar-Tass.

Signals are reported to have been received from a fishing boat and a research vessel which are in the greatest distress, stuck in the ice about 12 miles (19km) from the coast.

The sea rescue centre says three tugboats have been dispatched.
