Yipes: Fossil fuels are greening the planet

Hey, wait a minute. Aren’t fossil fuels and the Greens quite distinct? Isn’t the former the nemesis of the other? Isn’t the so-called runaway greenhouse effect and, uh, its attendant global warming, supposed to create deserts at least as far north as Minneapolis-St. Paul?

Hmm. Instead, it seems, vegetation up there (and even farther north) is growing like mad. More plants, more trees, more grass. Well, these things do take in CO2 in order to grow, and so, taking in the CO2, they are, indeed, growing. Duh.

UPDATE:  The Gorebot didn’t get the memo, or, more likely, he got it but didn’t want to read it as it conflicts with his plan to raise taxes. And, naturally, Obutthead is still leading with his behind. As what they’ve left of our economy dies, get ready for the new Ice Age.

Record low Arctic sea ice? Not

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.

Weather is proof of global warming

The Gorebot and the mosquitoes

I’ve always figured that old Army journalist Al Gore took one look at the acclaim and money that greeted Michael Moore’s fraudulent documentary on 9/11 and said to himself, "Ah ha, I can do that!"

And he did. And his Oscar- and Nobel-winning Inconvenient Truth is as big a crock as Moore’s opus. But I missed the bit where Gore claims AGW will increase insect-borne diseases such as malaria. The example he used of mosquitoes fluttering their way to Nairobi is wrong. But, in the spirit of MM’s crockumentary, the Gorebot uses it anyway. Of course. Money and fame are the aim.

Meanwhile, for those who find the Gorebot too annoying to spend much time with, there are these hundred reasons why climate change is not man-made. And New Scientist’s rebuttal which, curiously, only addresses half of the hundred reasons. Ran out of space, I guess. On the Net?

Another scorcher

KVUE meteorologists are predicting another unseasonably hot day, with a high of 97 degrees and a low in the 70s overnight, and similar temps through what has usually been a cool and wet Memorial Day weekend. That should bring smiles to the Global Warming apocolyptees, though these warm and cool periods came and went long before anyone heard of the Gorebot and his minions. And with cooling oceans, a decline in the average worldwide land temperature and the U.S. average temeprature, a thickening of the pack ice in the Arctic and more hints of global cooling, GW is looking more like a fraud every day.
