Glaciologist: "It's probably just simply a natural event that's just been waiting around to happen." - 'This is not just another sad climate change story. It's more complicated.' 'This is probably not directly attributable to any warming in the region'
Journal of Geography & Natural Disasters Kelly, J Geogr Nat Disast 2016, 6:1 'A survey of official weather sites and the scientific literature provides strong evidence that the first half of the 20th century had more extreme weather than the second half, when anthropogenic global warming is claimed to have been mainly responsible for observed climate change.'
'According to NOAA, the number of tornadoes has been steadily growing since the 1950s, despite a drop in numbers in the last five years. -- But with increased National Doppler radar coverage, increasing population, and greater attention to tornado reporting, there has been an increase in the number of tornado reports over the past several decades. This can create a misleading appearance of an increasing trend in tornado frequency.
'The bottom line is that the NOAA headline graph is grossly dishonest...NOAA themselves know all of this full well. Which raises the question – why are they perpetuating this fraud?'
Prominent Princeton U. Physicist Dr. WIll Happer to U.S. Senate: ‘The increase of CO2 is not a cause for alarm and will be good for mankind’ - ‘Children should not be force-fed propaganda, masquerading as science’
National Geographic : 1967 Feb, Page 194 - 'These records show that Alaska's ice masses advance and retreat in direct correlation with cyclic changes in sunspot numbers. Sunspots coincide with strong electrical energy discharges from the sun.'
Kerry stated, we must act quickly “to avoid the catastrophe we will inevitably see if we allow carbon emissions to go up, and up, and up.” Moreover, he added, “We need to speed it up dramatically because we are in a race against time.” ...“What we do right now, today, matters,” Kerry told the audience. “We don’t get a second chance on this one.”
Sting sings a 'global warming' tune: 'Seems things are worse than some had feared'
Only Sting’s eco-hypocrisy may be on par with Leonardo DiCaprio and James Cameron. And that’s saying something. His lavish lifestyle, which hardly meshes with his environmental message. Imagine the energy required to pay Sting’s bills. Here’s The Daily Mail dishing on Sting’s lifestyle circa 2008: He keeps no fewer than four homes in Britain with his wife, Trudie Styler, including the 800 acre Lake House estate in Wiltshire. The home has 14 bedrooms and 8 baths...Sting’s band The Police topped the list of groups with the largest carbon footprint.
His former cook Jane Martin told an employment tribunal how “opulent extravagance reigned” at the home, and there was “no regard to cost, expense or wastage” of food or drink.
Dr. Happer: 'I can’t see any reason to reduce CO2 emissions. Doubling or quadrupling current CO2 levels will be good for the world. The economic burdens you talk about are all pain with no gain for most of the world.'
'I don’t question that the earth has warmed since the end of the Little Ice Age, but I am persuaded that most of the warming was due to natural causes, about which the governments can do nothing.'
'Isn’t the freedom to think what we like and say what we think at the very heart of the scientific endeavor? If so, then how did we get ourselves into this fix? The situation seems to many of us to be truly scandalous — one that historians of science are going to be making hay out of for decades and centuries to come.'
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry told E&E News in a Jan. 3 interview: 'The one thing we know is that the commitments we’ve made, in Paris, will probably prevent about two-tenths of a degree of warming by the end of the 21st century. What is the point?'
Terence Corcoran: Trudeau’s Liberals just got struck by the first shot in Canada’s carbon-tax rebellion
Trudeau lambasted by single mom over hydro costs: “I’m asking you, Mr. Trudeau, how do you justify to a mother of four children, three grandchildren, with physical disabilities, and working up to 15 hours a day, how is it justified for you to ask me to pay a carbon tax when I only have $65 left in my paycheque every two weeks to feed my family.”
Trudeau: 'We have to realize that we are in a time of transition right now, that the world is moving off of fossil fuels and that is a good thing and that is an important thing. Because quite frankly, the extreme weather events that are coming are going to be incredibly expensive.'
Trudeau: 'We are facing a challenge where we have to change behaviours.'
