Hey, the First Church of Global Warming-Climate-Change-what-have-you, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party, says it’s settled. Let the burgeoning regulations and higher taxes begin. We have to kill more jobs to save humanity. Dissent will be punished. Undoubtedly by the Democrat IRS.
No matter what you think of the latest Democrat report that a) the globe is warming b) it’s all our fault and c) more taxes and higher energy costs will save humanity:
“Since even immediate and total shutdown of [ALL] carbon dioxide-emitting vehicles, power plants, and factories in the U.S. would decrease global warming by only a hypothetical and undetectable two-tenths of a degree Celsius by 2100, it is misleading to imply, as the report does, that the Obama administration’s climate policies can provide any measurable protection from extreme weather events.”
China and India are likely to have bigger impacts and they don’t have a truculent fool for a president. Not that this will stop the Democrats, you understand. All rather similar to the other Democrat lies that Obamacare would reduce health care costs and if you like your insurance you can keep it.
Via Watts Up With That.
Real scientists (as opposed to those corrupted by the federal dole) know the climate is far too complicated for any computer model yet devised to measure what’s happening today, let alone a hundred years in the future.
Like they say, GIGO: garbage in, garbage out. So this is not a surprise:
“49 former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden last week admonishing the agency for [its] role in advocating a high degree of certainty that man-made CO2 is a major cause of climate change while neglecting empirical evidence that calls the theory into question.”
Read. It. All.
Obviously, someone didn’t get the memo. Pelosi, et al, are shocked. Truly shocked. What do you mean, real science is never settled? Not to the Donks.
“The Great Hurricane of 1780, also known as Hurricane San Calixto, the Great Hurricane of the Antilles, and the 1780 Disaster is the deadliest Atlantic hurricane on record.
“Over 20,000 people died when the storm passed through the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean between October 10 and October 16. Specifics on the hurricane’s track and strength are unknown since the official Atlantic hurricane database only goes back to 1851.”
This was long before carbon dioxide from fossil fuels began to accumulate in the atmosphere. Hurricane Katrina, et al, have been pikers by comparison.
As usual, the Gorebot and the other warmingistas are claiming that Arctic ice is melting at a record pace. The coasts will soon be inundated by the rising oceans. They told you so. Except that it’s pure B.S.
“The lowest amount of ice was no where close to 2007 this year as one can see at this link http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.arctic.png,” says anti-warmingista meteorologist Joe Bastardi of Weather Bell. “It is low, but over the coming decades it will come back….to demonstrate the balance I feel is simply being attained….”
Bastardi’s meteorologist colleague at WB, Joe D’Aleo (AKA Dr. Dewpoint) adds this:
“I want you to see that the changes are real but that they tie with natural factors. Man has an effect on the climate primarily locally through land use changes and urbanization and through our emissions of primarily aerosols but… natural factors still dominate as shown by the extremes of recent years.”
As always, however, the warmists also will blame AGW for this week’s unusually early cold snap in the Northern Plains, since they claim that all weather extremes prove their greenhouse/global warming/climate change theory. How convenient. The proof against that is its own logical absurdity.
Meanwhile, the Gorebot (who, fascistically, calls AGW skeptics like Bastardi, D’Aleo [and me] “racists”) will choose his own “reality” today, raising money via ten dollar donations to keep his Lear jet and his Tennessee mansion polluting the atmosphere he claims to be so concerned about—while others hand him the mockery he deserves.
