Where’s All the Global Warming?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

I don’t normally like to bash others just because they have a different point of view. However, regarding this topic, I take pleasure in verbally beating up on those members of the Church of Perpetual Heat; the man-made Global Warming nuts.

 

We in realville, as Rush calls it, realize that a cold winter does not equal a global cooling trend, but neither does a hot summer prove global warming.

 

Yet that is exactly what we hear from the so-called warming experts whenever the temperature drifts above 100°F. When the temperature dips, the same fools either ignore it or call it climate change.

 

We don’t normally hear from the “true believers”. We hear mostly from those who have and continue to benefit financially from the warming farce and those who just want control.

 

One can’t really blame the ignorant true believer. They have been pummeled, year after year, with the propagandist threats of “change your lifestyle to save the planet and reduce your carbon footprint”.

 

Yet here we are setting negative temperature records across the United States and it’s not even winter.

 

The city of Portland Oregon, with its record-setting cold temperatures, opened warming shelters this past weekend. The director of a local Portland nonprofit said his main job was just to keep people alive.

 

At the same time we in the United States are freezing our backsides off, the UN climate chief, Christiana Figueres, is busy trying to shut down coal-fired power plants worldwide.

 

As we know, coal is dirty and icky and pollutes mother Earth. It causes excess greenhouse gases which leads to global warming, don’t you know. Tell that to Portland’s homeless, dying in the streets from exposure.

 

The head of the World Coal Association, Milton Catelin said Figueres is, “ignoring reality. She comes from a perspective where the only challenge in the world today is global warming”.

 

Figueres is a man-made global warming nut, who just happens to come from tropical Costa Rica, where the high temperatures year-round are in the mid-80s and the lows in the high 60s, so naturally she has experienced nothing but warming.

 

A few days ago Rush Limbaugh mentioned a ridiculous article written in 2000 by Charles Onians. It appeared in the UK independent and was entitled: “Snowfalls Are Now Just a Thing of the Past”.

 

He wrote that warming, “is now accepted as reality in the international community”. He claimed that warming manifests itself in warmer winters and hotter summers. Brilliant!

 

The money quote is: “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is”. I guess “the children” didn’t attend any NFL games this past weekend or end up in a multicar pileup due to excessive ice and snow.

 

So here we are, a mere 13 years after Mr. Onians wrote his dimwitted article, and what do we hear?

 

A new cold temperature record has been set in East Antarctica. Although when all there is is ice and snow, how does one tell East Antarctica from West? Just asking.

 

Anyway, the temperature recorded was… are you ready for this?… -135.8°F. What does the U.N. have to say about that, Ms. Figueres?

 

Makes one wonder just how cold it would be without all this man-made global warming?

Forget Global Warming!? Earth Undergoing Global COOLING

Forget global warming!? Earth undergoing global COOLING since 2002!

Climate Scientist Dr. Judith Curry: ‘Attention in the public debate seems to be

moving away from the 15-17 year ‘pause’ to the cooling since 2002’

Growing number of scientists are predicting global cooling: Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory: ‘We could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years’

‘Sun Sleeps’: Danish Solar Scientist Svensmark declares ‘global warming has stopped and a cooling is beginning…enjoy global warming while it lasts’

Prominent geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook warns ‘global COOLING is almost a slam dunk’ for up to 30 years or more

Australian Astronomical Society warns of global COOLING as Sun’s activity ‘significantly diminishes’

Climate Depot Exclusive Round Up of Global Cooling  predictions  

Professor Judith Curry of, the chair, School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, on June 14, 2013: “Attention in the public debate seems to be moving away from the 15-17 year ‘pause’ to the cooling since 2002 (note: I am receiving inquiries about this from journalists). This period since 2002 is scientifically interesting, since it coincides with the ‘climate shift’ circa 2001/2002 posited by Tsonis and others. This shift and the subsequent slight cooling trend provides a rationale for inferring a slight cooling trend over the next decade or so, rather than a flat trend from the 15 yr ‘pause’.”

Climate Depot Note:

Many scientists in recent years have noted the recent global cooling and predicted many years to decades to centuries of more global cooling. Below is a sampling of scientists and studies on global cooling.

UW-Milwaukee Professor’s Peer-Reviewed Study Predicts 50 Years of Global Cooling – January 2010: ‘A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor is making headlines for his work suggesting the world is entering a period of global cooling. “Now we’re getting a break,” Anastasios Tsonis, Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at UWM, said in an interview with the MacIver Institute. Tsonis published a paper last March that found the world goes through periods of warming and cooling that tend to last thirty years. He says we are now in a period of cooling that could last up to fifty years. read more

Pump Up The Warming… Global That Is

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 Question: what happens when the Sun sets? It gets dark and gets cooler.

Now, what happens when the Sun rises? It becomes light and warms.

In other words, the Sun is the source of the earth’s warmth. It’s hard to dispute that scientific and oh so obvious fact. And without it (the Sun), the Earth would be a dark, cold, lifeless rock.

Yet scientists discovered long ago that the warmth from the Sun is not consistent. Sunspots affect the Sun’s warming of the earth and they (sunspots) appear to run in regular cycles. The next to be the 25th recorded cycle. So it could accurately be stated that sunspots cause global warming and cooling.

On average the earth is warmer when sunspot activity is high and cooler with less and there has been a lot less sunspot activity lately, coupled with the weakening of the Sun’s magnetic fields that cause sunspots; steadily weakening since 1995. Funny how there hasn’t been any warming since 1998  – shortly after the weakening. Yet the man-made global warming fanatics insist that sunspots are not a factor. read more

George (C)Looney Blames Hurricane on Global Warming

 

 

In the wake of the typhoon that hit the Philippines, George Clooney has said that arguments against global warming are “stupid” and “ridiculous.” So where has Clooney been during this year’s very quiet hurricane season?

“Nearly one year after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast, the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season has not produced a single land-falling hurricane in the U.S. Instead of having above-average storm activity, as the seasonal hurricane outlooks unanimously called for, the season has been quiet — notable for its inactivity.”

The earth has been around for a long time. It’s difficult to say whether this or that weather event is the worst or best we’ve ever seen since we don’t have records of best and worst weather events. There’s an interesting storm story in the New Testament book of Acts that went on for days: read more

NatGeo Propagandists Defend IPCC Warming Claims

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

The latest IPCC report has been released on global climate change. To everyone’s surprise the report warns of catastrophic global warming on the horizon. Surprise!

 

The IPCC did have to admit the obvious… well kind of… that there has been no warming recently. But just you wait… you’ll see… the earth will start boiling again any day now.

 

Propagandists such as National Geographic online sprung into action highlighting the major IPCC claims as virtually irrefutable proof of warming. Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.

 

Here are just the two biggies, with of course my accompanying comments.

 

Before I touch on these points, I would like to correct one thing. Last week I wrote that “climate scientists” had overestimated the Earth’s sensitivity to CO2 emissions by some 30%. Well, I am man enough to admit I was wrong. The overestimation wasn’t by 30%. It was actually some 40%. That’s almost half! Knowing that, how dependable do you think a simulations outcome would be when the data you input is off by almost half? The IPCC scientists are either the dumbest smart guys on earth or criminally negligent. It is the latter and they know it and don’t care… I’m certain of it.

 

But just for fun – let’s go through 2 of their silly claims. read more

Global Warming Lives at the IPCC

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

So the U.N. IPCC high priests of Global Warming are meeting this week. No doubt flying in to Stockholm, Sweden on private pollutant spewing jets.

Despite all data to the contrary, their final report on the scourge of manmade global warming, to be released on Sept. 30 will surely be chock-full of dire predictions of Armageddon unless America reverts to third world status.

Yet some have started to recognize the graffiti on the walls at the “Church of the Burning Planet”, as Larry Bell calls it, that temperatures have been flat to cooling for the past 17 years.

Mr. Bell wrote that of all publications, The New York Times reported on June 6: “The rise in the surface temperature of Earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.” Reporter Justin Gillis went on to admit that the break in temperature increases “highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system”, whereby the lack of warming “is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists.”

Maybe the New York Times is the harbinger of a global climate shift? Could this be the opening salvo to the eventual shift from the warming hysteria to cooling? They were the first to do a 180 from cooling to warming in 1981, when just 6 years earlier Newsweek had their infamous, “The Ice Age Cometh” cover story that scared the crap out of many. The NYT even published their own article in 1975 entitled “Major cooling may be ahead”. read more

Al’s Global Warming Mega-Church

By: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh once again spoke of the hoax that is global warming. It’s in the news again, don’t ya know.

 

This is a real pet peeve of mine. I’ve done many articles disclaiming this hoax. As Rush stated, how otherwise brilliant people can just buy into the lie is fascinating.

 

It just shows that it is indeed not science but a religion and for others, it’s the politics of money, power and control.

 

The evidence so clearly shows there is no warming and hasn’t been for over 15 years. Recall the published e-mails of climate “scientists” falsifying and deleting data to achieve the necessary result. Yet the obvious manipulation by these climate hacks seems to hold no sway to the true “warming believers”.

 

The latest revelation of the climate scientists is that there is 95% certainty of global warming and it is man-made.

 

And there you have it. Proof positive! All they have to do is announce it and the religious faithful will just eat it up.

 

Rush said it is especially prevalent with the twenty-something crowd. I agree. I believe they have an ongoing struggle to be relevant and will thus latch onto any feel-good cause. They ask for no data, no proof, and no evidence.

 

And there is plenty of real data out there. There is also plenty of doctored data. That unfortunately is what makes the headlines.

 

For people like Al Gore who have become super rich off the hoax, one needs no proof. His truth is the truth.

 

Yet, as I stated, there is no real science to support their claims. In fact, the unaltered science claims the exact opposite.

 

Just look at the graphs below. This is empirical/scientific data. The unaltered data shows cooling, not warming and that just won’t do.

 

James Hansen worked at NASA’s GISS (Goddard Institute for Space Studies) He is now a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University. Maybe if you’re lucky, he will be teaching your impressionable children all about global warming. Or at least his made-up version. Below is some of Hansen’s “scientific” handiwork. read more

Save Us From the Warming Hoax

The United States will “do more” before it’s “too late” to prevent “dangerous” global warming, President Obama told Berliners. If Congress won’t act, he will, by regulating carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, increasing subsidies and reducing environmental overview for wind and solar projects on federal lands, and issuing other rules that will adversely affect economic growth and job creation.

Indeed, his Environmental Protection Agency is already devising new rules that will sharply curtail carbon dioxide emissions, by regulating thousands of facilities that use hydrocarbon energy – and thus ultimately almost everything Americans make, grow, ship, eat, and do.

However, the manmade global warming “disasters” exist only in computer models and assertions by scientists who are addicted to billions in government Climate Armageddon grants. Moreover, the “preventative measures” are far worse than the disasters EPA claims to be preventing.

Even the most diehard alarmists have finally recognized that average global temperatures have hardly budged since 1997, even as atmospheric levels of plant-fertilizing CO2 climbed steadily. For many areas, the past winter was among the coldest in decades; the USA and Britain just recorded one of their coldest springs on record; and satellite data show that Earth has actually cooled slightly since 2002.

NASA Makes Another Useless Global Warming Prediction

Junk Science: A new NASA study says global warming could “increase the risk for extreme rainfall and drought.” We’ve heard this sort of threat many times before and, no, there’s nothing to see here.

According to NASA: “Analysis of computer simulations from 14 climate models indicates wet regions of the world, will see increases in heavy precipitation because of warming resulting from projected increases in carbon dioxide levels. Arid land areas outside the tropics and many regions with moderate rainfall could become drier.”

How about that? Heavy rain in soggy regions and drought in the parched ones.

Pardon us if we don’t get too excited about this. If it happens, the world will deal with it. But there’s a good chance this forecast will end up like many of the other global-warming predictions of doom.

Who can forget that acclaimed 2007 film made by Al Gore, in which the former vice president and failed 2000 White House candidate said sea levels would rise by 20 feet “in the near future” due to man-made global warming? So, if we might employ today’s vernacular, how’s that working out for you, Al?

Not so good, he’d say if he were honest. The “near future” has come and gone, and the sea has not risen 20 feet, or 10 feet or even a single foot. No coastal city has become the new Atlantis and no beach resorts have been overrun by the ocean.

Years before Gore made his blustery prediction, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted that man-made warming would increase sea levels from 11.8 inches to 39.4 inches by 2100. Eleven years later, in 2001, it revised its prediction. The new range was 3.5 inches to 34.6 inches.

Another revision, this one in 2007, put the range between 7.1 inches and 23.2 inches, again by 2100.

Eco-Terrorists New Film

“Greedy Lying Bastards” follows “An Inconvenient Truth” in the climate change  alarmism documentary film genre. The difference is this film lacked Al Gore’s  name to give it momentum, although it has gotten some help  from CNN.
The film is the creation of former eco-terrorist Craig  Rosebraugh and actress Daryl Hannah of “Splash,” “Kill Bill” and “Bladerunner” among others. The film made a mere $45,000 its March 8 opening weekend,  according to Box  Office Mojo, which rated it the 400th movie of the past 365 days, and the  46th movie its March 8 opening weekend.

The documentary says it “investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to  tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is  not only a reality but also a growing problem that is placing us on the bring of  disaster,” according to the official website. The trailer, website and reviews  for the film all make it out to be a collage of tried and true lefty climate  change claims, complete with storm footage and villainization of the Koch  brothers and the oil industry.
The Los Angeles Times said that “longtime  followers of this hyper-partisan topic may not find much terribly new or  revealing here.” After an initial limited showing, the film was released in more  theatres on March 29.
Rosebraugh, the film’s director, has been an  outspoken activist for both the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation  Front, both of which are classified as domestic terror groups by the FBI. In a  press release on both groups, the FBI stated that “eco-terrorists and animal  rights extremists are one of the most serious domestic terrorism threats in the  U.S. today.”
One of the movie’s main targets is U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe,  R-Okla. Inhofe told The Tulsa World that he was not surprised that the film  targeted him, and he was proud of it on March 28. Inhofe was formerly the  ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. An  outspoken conservative, Inhofe was also a winner of the Family Research  Council’s “True Blue” award for a consistent conservative voting record.
