    Global-warming proof is evaporating


    Global-warming ‘proof’ is evaporating



    December 5, 2013


    The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way.

    Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed.

    Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. Back in 2005 I and others reviewed the entire hurricane record, which goes back over a century, and found no increase of any kind. Yes, we sometimes get bad storms — but no more frequently now than in the past. The advocates simply ignored that evidence — then repeated their false claims after Hurricane Sandy last year.

    And the media play along. For example, it somehow wasn’t front-page news that committed believers in man-made global warming recently admitted there’s been no surface global warming for well over a decade and maybe none for decades more. Nor did we see warmists conceding that their explanation is essentially a confession that the previous warming may not have been man-made at all.

    That admission came in a new paper by prominent warmists in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics. They not only conceded that average global surface temperatures stopped warming a full 15 years ago, but that this “pause” could extend into the 2030s.
    Mind you, the term “pause” is misleading in the extreme: Unless and until it resumes again, it’s just a “stop.” You don’t say a bullet-ridden body “paused” breathing.

    Remarkably, that stoppage has practically been a state secret. Just five years ago, the head of the International Panel on Climate Change, the group most associated with “proving” that global warming is man-made and has horrific potential consequences, told Congress that Earth is running a “fever” that’s “apt to get much worse.” Yet he and IPCC knew the warming had stopped a decade earlier.
    Those who pointed this out, including yours truly, were labeled “denialists.” Yet the IPCC itself finally admitted the “pause” in its latest report.

    The single most damning aspect of the “pause” is that, because it has occurred when “greenhouse gases” have been pouring into the atmosphere at record levels, it shows at the very least that something natural is at play here. The warmists suggest that natural factors have “suppressed” the warming temporarily, but that’s just a guess: The fact is, they have nothing like the understanding of the climate that they claimed (and their many models that all showed future warming mean nothing, since they all used essentially the same false information).
    If Ma Nature caused the “pause,” can’t this same lady be responsible for the warming observed earlier? You bet! Fact is, the earth was cooling and warming long before so-called GHGs could have been a factor. A warm spell ushered in the Viking Age, and many scientists believe recent warming was merely a recovery from what’s called “the Little Ice Age” that began around 1300.


    Yet none of this unsettles the rush to kill debate. The Los Angeles Times has even announced that it will no longer print letters to the editor questioning man-made global warming. Had the Times been printing before Columbus, perhaps it would have banned letters saying the Earth was round.


    Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to push to reduce supposed global-warming emissions. Last month, the president even signed an executive order establishing a Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience that could dramatically expand government bureaucrats’ ability to restrict Americans’ use of their property, water and energy to reduce so-called “greenhouse gas emissions.”

    Such attempted reductions in other countries have proved incredibly expensive, while barely reducing emissions. But damn the stubbornly weak economy, says President Obama, full speed ahead!
    This, even as new data show that last year the US median wage hit its lowest level since 1998 and long-term unemployment is almost the highest ever.
    People have a right to religious and cult beliefs within reason. But the warmists have been proved wrong time and again, each time reacting with little more than pictures of forlorn polar bears on ice floes and trying to shut down the opposition. (More bad timing: Arctic ice increased by almost a third this past year, while that at the South Pole was thicker and wider than it’s been in 35 years.)

    In war and in science, the bloodiest conflicts always seem to be the religious ones. Time for the American public to say it’s no longer going to play the victim in this one.

    Let's face it, MMGW was a Marxist plot to tax the developed world via the UN and start a one world gov't.

    Cultural Marxism (Secular Humanism mixed with Marxism including its major tenant- MMGW) is the opiate of the godless progressive masses.

    NOAA: Slow Atlantic hurricane season coming to a close

    No major hurricanes formed in the Atlantic basin - first time since 1994

    It's freezing cold because it's warming!

    Back in 2004, I posted on another forum that we had stood in line until 4AM at Home Depot waiting for plywood to board up our windows as a hurricane was heading our way.

    Many asked why we were SO foolish as to not already HAVE the plywood to cover the windows, living in a hurricane area.

    I answered, because if we did have plywood window coverings, they would be 55 years old since that was the last hurricane to hit our area of FL.

    By the way kudos to HD for staying open and shipping in truck load after truck load of plywood. They ran an organized waiting line snaking thru the store. broke out all their patio furniture for people to rest on and brought around hundreds, thousand? of icy cold bottled water and fruits. gratis. Lowe's across the street did the same.

    We weathered [no pun intended] that storm with a loss of a small piece of facia board. However the next storm 3 weeks later, DESTROYED the house with the plywood window coverings UP.

    Now the trusses are reinforced with more wood in the braces than the original trusses had. The gable ends are now wood grained concrete, and the windows have steel shutters. And the garage doors are all but armored.

    No storms since.

    And for the insurance haters. Rebuilding the house cost 50% more than its assessed value. Insurance paid every penny. They asked a few questions, not many, but paid.

    That's climate change!! Be afraid, be very afraid........

    What is the insuperable line?
    How much evidence must there be
    To prove what is plain for all to see?
    Must there be unanimous consent -
    Are we now ruled by sole dissent -
    In the progress of time?
    . . .
    The overwhelming scientific evidence indicates that global warming is occurring at an accelerated rate caused by hydrocarbon emissions into the atmosphere, and that anthropogenic activity is a significant contributing factor. What we know is that the polar icecaps are melting as evidenced by satellite imagery and decrease in mass verified by scientific measurements in situ. We also know that climate change occurs naturally as evidenced by core samples of the earth's surface. However, what we are seeing now is abrupt climate change; which the evidence links to the growth of the earth’s human population and activities over the past 250 years; and, most dramatically, in the last half century. What we know is that there is only a thin layer of ozone that shields the earth from the sun’s rays; and that it is being depleted by industrial emissions into the atmosphere resulting in the rise of the ocean temperature that generates the earth’s climate conditions. Just a small change in ocean temperature will affect the thermohaline conveyor leading to more harsh winter weather, reduced soil moisture and more intense winds in regions that provide the significant portion of the world’s food production, and cause a dramatic decrease in the human carrying capacity of the earth’s environment. The true test of science is empirical evidence - not political correctness. We must stop playing politics with this issue, and resolve to do something about it.

    You might want to update your propaganda.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-29-year.html

    September 2013,

    "A chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year an increase of 29 per cent.

    The rebound from 2012s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

    Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russias northern shores."

    "We must stop playing politics with this issue, and resolve to do something about it."

    And, what should we do about it? Of course, from the left all we hear is we must raise taxes a lot and redistribute income. That has nothing really to do with global warming or, as the brighter have started calling it anthropogenic climate change. With that, you can demand astronomical taxes for the weather whether it's warming or cooling.

    When I was in junior high, I learned that the U.S. and Europe were once covered with incredible glaciers. Know why they're gone? It's called global warming. It was those darn cave men driving their SUVs. Mars is getting warming, too.
    http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast09feb_1/

    I don't know what I did to cause Mars to get warmer but I'm sure it's my fault.

    When the sun explodes and incinerates the earth the last sounds we'll hear is, "It's all George Bush's fault. If only we'd raised taxes we could have......"
