Climate Models are All Wrong

from The Daily Caller:

Princeton Physicist Points Out The Obvious: Climate Models ‘Don’t Work’

Princeton University physicist William Happer is not a fan of models used to predict future manmade global warming, and stars in a new educational video laying out the reasons he believes climate models are faulty.

“And I know they don’t work. They haven’t worked in the past. They don’t work now. And it’s hard to imagine when, if ever, they’ll work in the foreseeable future,” Happer said in a video produced by PragerU. read more

Is it Time to Flip the Script on Global Warming?

Well, here we go again. An event that was infinitely predictable and virtually right on schedule.

Sky News posted an article on December, 27, 2017 entitled: “Scientists predict ‘mini ice age’ could hit UK by 2030.” The article’s subtitle is: “A model of the Sun’s magnetic activity suggests the River Thames may freeze over within two decades, experts say.” Thank you to The Blaze for drawing my attention to it.

The Sun? The Sun you say. How on Earth (get it) could that huge ball of fire in the sky, that determines all seasons and sustains all life, have anything to do with a changing climate. Don’t we know by now that a changing climate has only to do with man – and more specifically, Western man. And by man, I don’t mean the all-encompassing “mankind,” but rather the endangered species known as Western White man. It’s our fault, for centuries-long “harassment” (latest buzz word) of the planet – for inventing fossil fuels and burning them with reckless abandon, thus giving the Earth a temperature. Don’t go blaming the Sun!

I can see the headline now: “Next Ice age coming – Millions will Parish – Women and Minorities Hardest hit.” read more

An Ocean Reclaims Part of a City

from the American Spectator:

On a day in which Boston got walloped with 13.5 inches of snow, Mayor Marty Walsh fingered a familiar suspect for the assault upon the city: global warming.

Ignore the moon influencing the tides, the near-hurricane force winds, the foot-plus of snow, or the fact that because of massive land reclamation projects the Shawmut, once synonymous with peninsula, no longer resembles Florida, Baja California, or any other promontory that juts into the water. Global warming did it.

“If anyone wants to question global warming,” hizzoner explained, “just see where those flood zones are.” read more

It’s Moving Day for Santa

Global warming nuts are at it again, and this time they have attempted to co-opt Christmas, by telling us that Santa is a “Climate Refugee.”

I can think of no better way for radical leftists to celebrate the holiday than to scare the crap out of children. And not just any leftists, but trusted government leftists – because really – if you can’t trust your government to be honest with your kids, who can you trust. Am I right?

“There is no country on the planet that can walk away from the challenge and reality of climate change, And for our part, Canada will continue to fight for the global plan that has a realistic chance of countering it. We have a responsibility to future generations and we will uphold it,” the young and dashing Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, recently, told the United Nations General Assembly.

That September proclamation has now been followed by a warning to the world’s children, as a “Canadian government website claims that Santa Claus is relocating his workshop, elves and reindeer to the South Pole to escape the effects of global warming.” read more

Now Bitcoin Causes Global Warming?

from IBD:

The green movement has found many things in modern life that cause global warming, but the latest really left us scratching our heads: Trading Bitcoins. At this point it might be easier to ask, is there anything that doesn’t cause global warming?

No, it’s not a joke. Just about anything these days (Hat tip: The Daily Caller) even remotely connected to civilization, human flourishing and comfort is, we’re told, a “cause” of global warming. It’s a crucial element of the Global Warming religion, which has only waxed even as real religion has waned. read more

Liberal States to Enact Climate Change Rules

Despite 23 Years of no Warming!

from the American Spectator:

President Donald Trump announced his administration would withdraw the United States from the agreement. These pledges have led four states — Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, and New York — to enact climate and energy policies based on the Obama-era social cost of carbon (SCC) calculations, which attempt to quantify the long-term economic damages associated with emitting one ton of carbon dioxide into the air. The Obama administration concluded for every ton of carbon dioxide released, $36 worth of damage occurs.

The SCC is based on flawed scientific and economic assumptions. As a result, the dozens of regulations imposed on the energy sector that were based on these calculations significantly and needlessly increase the cost of electricity without delivering any measurable environmental benefits. read more

Shattering the Global Warming Myth

from the Daily Caller:

STUDY: Satellites Show No Acceleration In Global Warming For 23 Years

 Global warming has not accelerated temperature rise in the bulk atmosphere in more than two decades, according to a new study funded by the Department of Energy.

University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists John Christy and Richard McNider found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record it showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s.

“We indicated 23 years ago — in our 1994 Nature article — that climate models had the atmosphere’s sensitivity to CO2 much too high,” Christy said in a statement. “This recent paper bolsters that conclusion.”

Christy and McNider found the rate of warming has been 0.096 degrees Celsius per decade after “the removal of volcanic cooling in the early part of the record,” which “is essentially the same value we determined in 1994 … using only 15 years of data.” read more

No City Uses 100 Percent Renewable Energy – Not Even Close

from Climate Depot:

Alex Epstein: Gore’s sequel ‘lies’ about alleged ‘100% renewable energy’ city of Georgetown TX

Epstein: “Gore shows us the town of Georgetown, Tex. and its use of 100-per-cent renewable energy. Stories about “100-per-cent renewable” locations like Georgetown, Tex. are not just anecdotal evidence, they are lies. The Texas grid from which Georgetown draws its electricity is comprised of 43.7 per cent natural gas, 28.8 per cent coal, 12 per cent nuclear, and only 15.6 per cent renewable. Using a virtue-signalling gimmick pioneered by Apple, Facebook, and Google, Georgetown pays its state utility to label its grid electricity “renewable” —  even though it draws its power from that fossil-fuel heavy Texas grid — while tarring others on the grid as ‘non-renewable.’” read more

Warmists Lie about the Paris Climate Agreement

from IBD:

For Climate-Change Hypocrites, U.S. Is Too Frackin’ Much

The tut-tutting and tsk-tsking about the U.S. withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement knows no end. But as yet another news story shows, the Paris deal is an utter fraud and should be considered as such.

As Francis Menton of the Manhattan Contrarian blog recently pointed out, a July 9 New York Times headline couldn’t hide the paper’s disgust and contempt for President Trump for once again telling the G20 group of nations that the U.S. would not fulfill President Obama’s unkeepable climate promises under the Paris accords.

“World Leaders Move Forward On Climate Change, Without U.S.,” the Times headline sneered. read more

Global Warming Science – It’s Settled – They Lied Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

How many times would you put up with being cheated on in a relationship? How many times would you tolerate being lied to? Is it one and done? Or maybe 2 – 3 – a half a dozen?

Obviously, this is a loaded question. It would depend on a number of factors. Independence vs. interdependence – or maybe just how forgiving a person is. Maybe it’s a relationship of convenience – like the Clintons – more a business partnership than a personal, loving relationship.

But what if the relationship were between you and cause? A cause you felt so strongly for, people considered you “wedded” to it. A cause like…oh…I don’t know…Global Warming.

What if you were all-in on man caused global warming because, as experts have oft-repeated, the science of global warming is settled? But then you found out that the cause you’ve been wedded to is almost entirely a lie? What would you do? You just may have to reevaluate your loyalty. read more
