Anniversary of a Global Warming Fail

by: the Common Constitutionalist

With the onslaught of snow that buried much of the east coast this past weekend, I recall a prediction of just a few years ago. It was part of an article from 2006 which was updated in 2012, entitled “20 THINGS YOUR GRANDKIDS MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE.”

The article began with: “So here we look at 20 things that our grandchildren may never see by the year 2050…” The number one item the British authors were dismayed about was: “British winters are getting warmer and wetter, due to global warming. Climate experts predict that temperatures could rise by a minimum of 2.5C by 2050. This may mean that we’ll see no snow in the future – and our grandkids won’t be able to build real snowmen or enjoy snowball fights.”

I’m sure you noticed the caveat of “temperatures could rise,” not temperatures will rise.

Now some might say I’m nitpicking and the climate science, like any science, is not exact. In science, they say, one never gives definitive statements like “will.” That’s true except that warming alarmists, I mean scientists, have repeatedly declared that the science of global warming is settled – this all “credible” experts agree. Settled science is pretty definite, is it not? So why use hedge words like “could” and “may” instead of “will” and “shall?” Hmm. read more

Podcast – Terror Alert Close To Home – The Global Warming Agreement

In this episode I share my personal experience of see something – say something and how it pertains to domestic terror. What did I find? Listen to learn.

I also discuss the recently released Climate Alarmist COP 21 Agreement, which is really just a money laundering scheme. And as the alarmists attempt to fleece us – in Germany, a less publicized meeting of evil climate denying actual scientists convened to once again debunk the scam of man-made global warming. read more

Climate Change Is Abnormal

Ever wonder where Brits vacation? Me either, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Evidently a lot of people from the UK holiday on the Mediterranean Sea. They head to the beach resorts in Spain and Portugal and other coastal countries.

Well, “Holidaymakers fleeing the UK for their traditional summer break are likely to opt for alternative destinations to avoid the sweltering heat, which has this month seen thermometers in Cyprus hit a whopping 63°C. The frightening predictions, calling an end to their traditional Exodus to the Mediterranean, were made by the European Commission investigating the savage effects of climate change.”
Now, I’ll grant you, that’s pretty darn hot. If that reading is accurate, that is 145°F – astounding actually. So it’s been a really hot summer. Naturally that is proof of global warming. Hot summer = global warming. Cold winter = global warming.

“The findings are based on a conservative estimate that global temperatures will rise by an average of 2°C by the end of the century.”

And how did they develop this finding? Why, computer models of course, which are consistently wrong or wildly overstated. So a few hot summers equate to catastrophic global warming, yet when someone says that a few cold winters must disprove the theory, that’s apparently nonsense. Cold winters are just weather. See how this works? read more

The Real Political Science

 Even as climate alarmists amplify their call for a worldwide tax on carbon dioxide emissions in the name of preventing global warming – penguins, polar bears, Himalayan glaciers and Arctic sea ice are all thriving.

With dire proclamations of ice free Arctic summers vehemently debunked, the latest data indicates that both wildlife and the environment in earth’s coldest regions has not experienced the catastrophic devastation predicted as a result of man-made climate change.

Forecasts that Canada’s polar bear population would significantly decline due to global warming have been proven completely inaccurate. The latest study shows that the Hudson Bay area polar bear population has remained steady at around 1000 – the same number found by a 2004 study, confounding the “doom-and-gloom” predictions of environmentalists about the demise of the polar bear (which) have failed to come true,” reports the Canadian Press.

“We are not observing these impacts right at this moment in time. And it is not a crisis situation as a lot of people would like the world to believe it is,” said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut’s director of wildlife management.

Gissing added that their survey of Polar Bear population could yield twice as many as earlier predicted.

Meanwhile, Live Science reports, “A new study using satellite mapping technology reveals there are twice as many emperor penguins in Antarctica than previously thought.”

Using state of the art technology that can single out penguins from other birds, researchers counted almost 600,000 penguins around the coastal regions, almost double the previous estimate of 270,000-350,000.

But it’s not just wildlife that is contradicting the claims of climate change alarmists, the environment itself is not behaving as global warming data models predicted.

Satellite data produced by French researchers shows that glaciers in the western Himalayan region are “putting on mass” rather than melting completely as doomsayers had warned in a 2007 UN IPCC report, which claimed that most of the region would be ice-free by 2035.

Despite the findings, BBC News, an ardent promoter of climate change propaganda, blamed the thickening of the glaciers on man-made global warming. When the earth last showed similar activity back in the 1970′s, the same scientific establishment, which now pushes anthropogenic global warming, blamed the changes on global cooling.

New research from the Arctic’s Bering Sea also found that ice is thickening.

“The amount of floating ice in the Arctic’s Bering Sea – which had long been expected to retreat disastrously by climate-alarmist organizations such as Greenpeace – reached all-time record high levels last month, according to US researchers monitoring the area using satellites,” reports The Register.

The article points to a 1999 Greenpeace prediction that sea ice in the area “could vanish altogether,” another piece of alarmist propaganda debunked by reality.

Despite a multitude of data that continually serves to eviscerate the pseudo-science behind man-made global warming, illustrating again that the earth has gone through natural warming and cooling cycles since its very genesis, climate change snake oil salesmen like NASA’s James Hansen, who this week will call for a global tax on CO2 emissions, continue to ignore real science in pursuit of their political agenda to exploit heartfelt environmental concerns for profit and power.
