’600 page litany of doom’: Weather Channel Co-Founder John Coleman slams Federal climate report: A ‘total distortion of the data and agenda driven, destructive episode of bad science gone berserk’

Update: ‘Climate Hustle’ or ‘American Doomsday’?! Obama climate report panned by scientists – ‘Pseudoscience’ ‘sales pitch’ ‘follow the money’ ‘total distortion’ ‘false premise’ ‘outdated & wrong’ ‘failure’

John Coleman’s Blog for Wednesday, May 7th

The sky is falling. “Climate Change” is running wild and disaster is certain unless we immediately stop burning coal and oil and move quickly to “green energy” to eliminate use of fossil fuels. Heat waves, huge floods, powerful storms, droughts and rising seas are on the verge of killing millions of us and destroying our civilization. That is my summary of the new Federal Assessment of Climate Change issued by a Obama administration team of more than 300 specialists guided by a 60-member federal advisory committee produced the report. It was reviewed by federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.

This 600 page litany of doom and gloom has received extensive coverage by the panting anchors of the national media who feel important when tell their audience that “the sky is falling.” Horrible pictures of storms, floods, drought and heat waves leaped out of the TV sets as the New York and Washington DC headquartered media was particularly excited to tell us how the huge increases in floods and storms was the worst in that part of the nation.

If you accept the picture painted by this report, the weather was just right, steady and nice in the historic past but because our industrialized society has powered its heating and air conditioning, its transportation by train, plane, cars and trucks, generated it’s electric power to run our lights, computers, television and smart phones with fossil fuels it has triggered this nightmare of awful storms, droughts and heat waves.

I am deeply disturbed to have to suffer through this total distortion of the data and agenda driven, destructive episode of bad science gone berserk. The only good news is that I least where I am and on the channels and websites I saw I was not further insulted by fawning TV Weathercasters visiting the White House and interviewing the President. I best I can tell, on a national level, that turned out to be a non-event (thank goodness).

Please allow me to hold your attention for a few minutes to explain why I don’t buy into this Climate Change alarmism. The climate of Earth has never been “normal” or stable. It has continuously changed through this planet’s 4.5 billion year history. Powerful storms, floods, droughts, heat waves and ice and snow storms have come and gone as long as Earth has existed.

The current bad science is all based on a theory that the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the exhaust of the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in “the greenhouse effect” causing temperatures to skyrocket uncontrollably. This theory has failed to verify and is obviously dead wrong. But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers.

When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.

They call people such as me who debunk their non-scientific silliness as “deniers” and claim we are flat-earthers and shills for “big oil”. It is insulting and maddening. But I will not be silenced. And neither will the thousand others, many of them with Ph.D.’s and on the faculties of major universities who are working to stop this bad science that labels CO2 as a pollutant and blames it for every shift in the weather.

We will be gathering, we global warming skeptics, at Heartland Institutes 9th International Conference on Climate Change, July 7 – 9, 2014 in Las Vegas. You can learn about that conference at http://climateconference.heartland.org/. I will be one of the speakers at the breakfast session on Tuesday July 8th. Look at the list of speakers on the website and you will see an impressive group. A group of the powerful Ph.D.’s in the group have recently published a complete scientific document that totaling destroys the climate change alarmism of the US Democrat Party and the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. You can find that publication on line at http://climatechangereconsidered.org/.

In the meantime, through blogs, and radio and television interviews whenever any of us can get on the air we will continue to try to debunk this way of climate alarmism. For instance, I will be on the air on WLS Radio in Chicago with Bruce Wolf & Dan Proft on Wednesday morning (today) at 8:45 AM Chicago time (6:45 AM San Diego time) and do my best to tell the real story of climate and weather. You can listen to that broadcast on line at

All of this not withstanding, my life is sooo good. Every day is fun and relaxed since I have ended the tread mill life of grinding out all those TV weathercasts a day. I now do my dancing for fun only. LOL

Blog for Tuesday, May 6th

The President of the United States has decided to make Climate Change a major issue of the last two years of his Administration.  This deeply saddens me but I won’t give up my effort to debunk the horrid distortion of science that has led to this Climate Change Alarmism campaign.  First of all, please, believe me, there is no significant man-made global warming. There is a minor warming trend continuing as Earth continues to go through its normal, natural climate change from Ice Age to Interglacial period which in ten thousand year or so will fade into another ice age.  The activities of mankind in powering our civilization with fossil fuels has had no significant impact on this natural process. And this chart shows that the warming has stalled now for 17 plus years:

TWEET

So today to launch his new campaign the President has invited a group of television Meteorologist to the White House to interview him on the topic.  The barrage of publicity will be deafening.  I deeply regret that the global warming/climate change thing has become a partisan political issue.  Al Gore made global warming a Platform issue for the Democrat Party and it is now accepted without serious study or scientific consideration by a vast majority of liberals in this country.  And, as politics goes, the Republican Party denies global warming because it is a key issue of the other party without even studying the science.

There are thousands and thousands of scientists who know without a doubt that the entire matter is based on bad science. We fight with everything we have to inform the public of the truth, but the dominate liberal media shuns us and the global warming team calls us names and insults us. We know we right and we try to explain that this global warming campaign is costing us billions in tax dollars every year and driving up the our cost of living by well over a thousand dollars a year for the average family (and the cost is increasing dramatically in the coming years as the government enacts cap and trade regulations.)  One dramatic increase is in the cost of corn.  This is leading to hunger and perhaps thousands of deaths per year in the poorest nations of the world.  It is not a small, “who cares” matter.  You can get my explanation of how this all got started and what the bad science is all about by watching my videos on this website or following my links to active climate change debunking websites of scientists I greatly respect.  I get you to set politics aside and study the science of the issue.  It is important.  Meanwhile, somehow I will get through the next 48 hours or so of massive publicity on the issue.

Best regards,

John Coleman

    Ah yes, the weather channel..best known for misogyny and blatant discrimination against female employees…just shove it

    • BornAgain123

      That is the NEW Weather Channel….a fully owned and operated subsidiary of NBC and Comcast….two left wing operations. If you have complaints about the Weather Channel today, call NBC or Comcast!!! The Weather Channel founded by Mr. Coleman was dedicated to….surprise, surprise….WEATHER!! Today’s WC has bought into the global, warming, change, disruption myth! It ain’t John Coleman’s WC anymore, sadly.

      • Independent Latino

        Well said!

    • user z

      I think you are confusing them with the current White House administration.

    • Raffi256

      Weather Channel is one of those things that seems like an anachronism today. Like Blockbuster Video. In the days before the Internet, people used to have to sit and wait for their local weather forecast on a TV channel instead of just viewing it instantly.

          You do realize none of this has to do with weather. Weather, that we have been having for abaout4 billion years give or take. If you are so worried about CO2, quit exhaling.

          • coppersmom

            I think you should go rally for the XL pipeline, which takes crude from Canada..pipes it down the midsection of America…creating the environmental risks here, not there..and dumps it at Port Arthur, from whence it is shipped to China and Japan..You’ll be convinced it’s a patriotic move…fyi…I used to do the weather forecasts…I know what weather is..May your environment suit your attitude.

          • Chris Coulter

            Actually…

            1) Keystone XL only adds a much needed connection to the existing Keystone Pipeline network, so it’s hardly something new.
            2) Pipeline transport of crude oil is BY FAR the safest method available today.
            3) The whole reason that the crude oil will go to Louisiana is because that’s where the best refineries in the world are located.
            4) The majority of exports will be of refined petroleum products (gasoline, diesel, distillates, etc.) which are far more valuable than raw crude and also far less damaging to the environment in the unfortunate circumstance of a spill.
            5) So what if the refined products go to Japan or China or Botswana? The Canadian producers will just ship the crude there anyway where it will be refined in far less efficient and far less environmentally safe refineries and there will be no boost to the U.S. Economy. Might as well make a few bucks while trying to keep the planet cleaner…

          • skhpcola

            It would be best to ignore the psychotic she-hag “coppersmom.” She is unstable and clinically retarded, so there is no use trying to be rational with the stupid beeyotch.

            On topic, you forgot to mention that there are currently 2.5 million miles of pipelines buried in the US. Leftists would love to push the narrative that pipelines are evil and dangerous, but the fact is that coppersmom and other filthy leftists are anti-humanist trash. It bothers them that we can afford to live in comfort while they feel guilty about it. The D-bag ideology is evil…people like coppersmom feel morally compelled to advocate for things that destroy wealth and squelch entrepreneurship. They are sick in body and soul and can’t be cured.

          • coppersmom

            There are more than a few leaks in your rebuttal.
            I appreciate that pipeline transfer is in some respects safter than sea transport, but this oil will eventually be transported over water, in any event. The crude will go to Texas, actually, Port Arthur. The refineries will produce massive pollution due to the increased production. It will not be bringing in oil for Americans to refine and use. There will be no disconnect from our need to buy oil from the Middle East, if xl is built. We have one nation. You want to cut it literally in half with a nasty, dangerous flammable goop tube forevermore. They’ll be jobs created, by golly to install the sucker…but very few to maintain. This is a permanent, idiotic scar on our essence.f it. And how do I know what I know? I was a reporter in Santa Barbara, California for many years…just google oil Santa Barbara. I also covered pipeline and LNG issues as considered by the California legislature..I’m no bumpkin.I have ridden 8 foot waves at Rincon in the middle of the ’69 platform blowout oil spill, and been coated from head to toe,famously.

          • Biggy Johnson

            Then you must support making ethanol illegal. It has been proven to create more pollution to produce and transport than the gas it replaces. Also You must be for more Nuclear plants if we could lower to coat of electricity in the USA we could make all electric cars more cost effective and get off the oil.

          • Biggy Johnson

            Oh and lastly rather than insulting us or the weather channel, please stick to the point where is the error in his data that temperatures have not actually gone up?

          • jekyllisle

            Wow Biggy Johnson just schooled you…you should probably stick to Mother Jones and leave real conversations to others

    • Freedom?

      Even IF that were true.

      How does that makes facts false?

    Yes, when the dollars drive the “science” you cease to get science.

    • Andy Ricks

      What dollars? Be specific

      • smwils

        I believe she is referring to all of the $$ going to Obama cronies in the form of subsidies. Remember “Solyndra”???? Wake up and get a clue….

      • Bob

        The government decides which research gets funding. If a proposal is written that can be used to advance the theory of the day and help provide “support” for what the ideas the government wants to advance then that proposal is more likely to get advanced. If the research in question looks at an issue from a way that might refute the conventional government approved wisdom then it is less likely to be approved. I do not work in the global warming area but I have seen this at work in other areas on a small scale. It does not even have to be an intentional bias. If a bureaucrat has enough funding to support one more research project and they can select a proposal the could build the case for corn being used in ethanol or an alternative proposal to examine switchgrass use for the production of ethanol the corn proposal could easily be funded because it would be perceived as more valuable since it is looking at an existing area of interest. Switchgrass research would still get some funding but it would take longer to build a good base of research and by the time the results are in the infrastructure might already be in place for the use of a different fuel. Plus, established names with “good” results get more funding since they have a proven track record and know the process. So the early success of the dominate belief can lead to long lasting effects.

        Sorry others answered negatively to your very reasonable request. I hope this helps.

        • Cincinnatus

          @Bob – You are a real DUPE, or a covert demoncrat. Andy p Ricks was NOT asking a serious question. Just look at some of his other posts. He is like all neo-Communist demoncrats. They have swallowed (or furthered) the SCAM of AGW, either without researching the real science and economics, or in spite of it. When you stoop to their level to try to explain it to them, you do not do the cause of truth any good.

        • nostudme1

          Solyndra?

        • Ugh

          What you don’t mention are the players, those that assist with the funding allocations. If Warren Buffet owns more land in corn crops you can bet your bottom dollar research money will be allocated to corn ethanol. They feed off of each other with everybody else money!

          • X30X

            WITH Charlie Munger AND Son being right in there as well; can Warren Buffet be far behind, or is he The Lead-in Man, they ALL being Berkshire-Hathaway!

      • Steve

        I believe she’s referring to the billions of dollars going to Federal agencies such as USGS, NOAA, USFWS, NASA, USFS, BLM, EPA, DOD, DOE, DOC, NSF – I could go on. These agencies budgets have been increased or restructured over the past 10 – 15 years to focus significant resources on demonstrating the effects of Human Caused Global Warming, now referred to as Climate Change. I hate to say it, but having worked as a scientist in one of these agencies for more than 32 years I can attest to the claim that many scientists (certainly not all) will follow the trail that leads to more funding. This is often done, not as a blatant misrepresentation of facts, but rather by ignoring reasonable hypotheses in favor of those that support a preconceived narrative that will keep the funds coming in.

        • S Johnson

          “Some” Scientists are human after-all. Yes, we are easily manipulated and biased to ensure our own survival. Not an excuse, just a fact.

      • coffeedrinker88

        Well, one it talked about it in the article, $2.6 billion in grants for man made climate change research. Not to mention the millions in guaranteed “loans” for companies like Solyndra (529 million) ECOtality (113 million), Abound SOlar (70 mil), and Fisker Auto (139 mil). Then add on the billions more in subsidies from the Sunshot Intitiative. There are more if you do a little research.

        Is that specific enough for you?

      • Lucifer49441

        The dollars that fund the research. Please understand that at the end of the day, climate “scientist” have any product to sell to the end user. No 3d television, better smart phone, faster computer etc. Because they only have data, they rely on tax payer money for funding. Since their research is mind numbingly boring, they won’t get money like space exploration.

        So they need a dooms day scenario for continued funding.

        • The_RS_Gadfly

          It’s actually simpler than that. When the top level bureaucrats sit in their office discussing funding for the next fiscal year they ask “what’s got the attention of the elected politicians who give us our funding this year?” If that’s AWG or Climate Change, that’s what they move their focus to. Because at the end of the day, it’s not about the official mission, it’s about growing their specific agency’s head count so they are more important and can move on to bigger and better things.

          Trust me. I’ve been in the office when the conversations are held. These days nobody is more invisible to the elite than the help desk guy fixing their PC.

          • Lucifer49441

            agreed

          • X30X

            NASA is now a prime example!

      • P_Ang

        “But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers.”
        Straight from the article.

      • BenDoverPls

        Two kinds of dollars.

        There are the dollars that fund research and studies. Often times those dollars dictate the published outcome.

        Then there are the dollars that interested parties hope to obtain in the future based on the changed in the attitudes and beliefs of the citizens and/or consumers. (Al Gore falls very much into this category.)

        Many times the dollars that pay for “research” are spent in order to generate the future dollars.

      • Nunya Bidness

        NIH and NSF are the two primary funding bodies that receive U.S. taxpayer money and use those monies to award Grants to U.S. and world laboratories. Department of Energy and Department of Defense are also huge allocators of public funds to scientific grants. All of that money is subject to “political wind shift” so if your research thrust does not align with the accepted narrative it is not funded. It has always been that way but not to the extent it is today. Researchers today must parrot the global warming narrative in order to get another grant which, in turn, funds the payroll of laboratory personnel, apparati and consumables used in the research setting.

      • Shlomi Dori

        Your question is so poorly articulated that I would never take an extra breath to answer it.

      • mewp12

        Most of the “climate” experts receive grants to come up with guess what global warming. they don’t want to lose their piggy bank. Most scientists do not believe in this. Nor do Geologists. Want to know about climate change? read a geology book.
        a real one.

          • TripleA60

            World debt is over $75 Trillion dollars as world governments continue to just pump money into their economies just to keep them afloat. (As the US has been doing for years at the tune of 85 Billion a month).

            World governments need new cash flow to continue their lavish spending spree and this is where they are going to find it.

            Regardless weather you believe in Global Warming or not. Does anyone think that giving world governments Trillions of dollars is going to fix anything…

            All it boils down to is money grabbing, Regulation, Control (with control being the forefront of thought from the governments)

            As soon as NBC bought TWC I stopped watching. TWC went from an informative network to Al Roker’s circus! And they even fired the hurricane hunter pilot because monitoring hurricanes as a reservist took “too much time away from her job”. Pathetic!

          • Maggie

            rick,
            AND they’ve started ‘naming’ winter storms (big or small), like they do hurricanes. Why? Well, because it gives people the conditioning/impression that ‘Oh no! The snow storms are so bad now the weather experts have to name them!’ … Except that this is the AGW pushers’ way of skirting around the fact the winters are not warmer or les snowy. Whatever happens the AGW pushers grab it and twist it into proof they are right. So wrong are they, and so little do people believe these guys, that they once again have to change the terminology from 1970s ‘new ice age/global cooling’ to 2000s ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change’ when things didn’t heat-up to now “global climat disruption’ today so that that AGW pusher umbrella covers anything and everything.
            The weather ‘science and seriousness’ today isn’t much more than that flashing and thundering smoke and mirrors illusion the “Wizard of Oz” was controlling from behind the curtain in order to frighten, and thereby control, the masses.

            Well you do realize that, as the entire country has adopted singular names for hurricane events, to better track and monitor them, The Weather Channel, has made it part of their agenda to name winter storms. This is not anything for them except a marketing ploy. It’s not an agenda on their part

          • Emily Agner

            Exactly! You hit the nail on the head. There are actual environmental dangers that deserves the medias attention, except they focus on the fear inducing lie called Climate Change. It is publicly funded by the government and exaggerated by the media in hopes of scaring the people into wanting government control. Fear encourages people to give up their own rights in exchange for protection against an imaginary foe. I do not have to believe in Climate Change to be an environmental activist, nor does the government always have to be the answer to every problem.

            You need to understand that most of the problems of the US are a result socialist policies of the past including some republican ones.Look what happened to the russians when they went socialist, how about Venezuela in the few years Chavez and the head red have had control. They can’t feed themselves anymore.
            Seems that you would prefer that no one make anything and that the morons in charge go ahead and destroy the US economy. It is clearly coming and I am sure your ilk will try to blame “capitalsts” for its destruction. But really it is caused by 50 years of moronic “pay the voter to vote for me ” policies.

          Professional climatologists — who live and profit from the funding of politician spreading climate hysteria — can’t stand looking at a much broader picture of climate. They are relying upon data taken accurately over a period of a few decades. This isn’t even a “drop in the bucket” of Earth history. Climatologists WANT to find “global warming” and links to mankind — because they make their living from it. Liberal politicians just want CONTROL.

I don’t give a rats *** about Obama. every thing we do has a consequence the caps are melting sea levels are rising, so much so that cites in Florida are getting flooded a lot more and the infrastructure which was enough to deal with it in the past is no longer adequate. and maybe you should be asking which side stands to make more money the fossil fuel industry, who has a death grip on our government or NASA? because according to this guy NASA is fudging the science? Here is a tip don’t just take someones word actually look things up. In fact look up water levels in Miami Fl, then look pics of the polar caps and compare ones from 20 to 30 years ago to ones taken in the last couple of years. Then ask yourself what could cause these changes? Does ice melt if it stays the same temperature? When it gets colder or hotter?

      As a recipient of said funds I would like to ask you how we should fund scientific research without federal dollars. I am most intrigued of where these moneys would come from. Hey, did you know most NSF allocated moneys for projects extend decades in to the past? I work for a group in ecological study that publishes many findings in scientific journals, some arbitrary, some pivotal, but all true.

      See the thing with science is that we give you the facts, hard data not opinions, and it is up to the reader to interpret the data how they see fit. So it’s a lot like a Rorschach test watching someone interpret scientific data, you really see where they stand as a human being. Those swiftest to jump to conclusions about hard data having an “agenda” typically do not understand what science or the scientific method are.

      • Ugh

        Research should never be funded by special interest groups and the government is a special interest group! There are many ways upon which research can be funded by universities, but they are too busy using those dollars to build football stadiums and thinking how to pay college players.

        and the IPCC “scientists” gave us lies and a left-wing agenda.

        Do you UNDERSTAND THAT?

        Or will you STILL INSIST we believe the LIE???

        To answer your question….research is not completely dependent on government. There is also PRIVATE research. But that research is not usually driven by a POLITICAL AGENDA. Its driven by a market agenda. You know the market, which is PEOPLE!

        But then your research has to show something that benefits the market, you know, the PEOPLE.

        And as soon as they find out your “research” is a politically driven agenda, you will be CUT OFF!

        Thats what you fear. The truth!

When your predictions do not come true you change the terminology or use any normal weather patterns such as a rain storm and say it was due to climate change. Your credibility is shot! These predictions put you on the same playing field as Religious Fanatics screaming the world is going to end.

        You do not offer facts, nor hard data. How do I know? Error bands and tolerances. I cannot seem to find those on scientific charts coming from those of you examining climate any more.

        Since no instrument in the world is without error, and no methodology is without assumptions, AND given the fact that your reports offer neither….We are only left with the quite logical conclusion that your results are sculpted to meet the desire of your masters.

        Nice daydream. Too bad it doesn’t really work that way. The NSF is as political an organization as any other government agency or office. Just the choosing of whom and what to fund is rife with politics.
        How about this … fund the research with your own money. If anyone thinks it’s of value, they can purchase the data from you. Competitors can evaluate if your data is any good or not, and expose bad methodology, bad science, bad procedure … or validate. Eventually, the marketplace will expose the frauds, reward the honest. Your outfit can thrive or ail based upon trustworthiness. It’s called an open free market.

        Nonsense reply.
        The entire AGW argument is centered around misleading, manipulated or outright fabricated data. It is not science and as such should not be funded.
        Most reasonable people would agree that the government can be utilized to further legitimate research efforts, but there is no oversight of the process. You’ve got the inmates running the asylum, and so we continue to fund the ridiculous AGW fairytale, along with countless other worthless projects that are a complete waste of taxpayer resources.

        You allow the the MSM to state the debunked claim that 97% of scientist believe it when it was an annonymous 3 question survey where 92 of 97 (unverified scientists) believe in this hoax. It was mentioned again on MSNBC or NBC last week.

        But using the same unverified method, 31,000 signed a petition with 1,000′s declaring themselves to be scientists.

        Does the MSM mention 31,000 vs 97, just to be fair and impartial? Of course not.

        Michael Mann sued someone for defamation. When they asked for his records to prove his ‘scientific research’ – he refused because his fake science would have been exposed.

        In his speech warning about the MIA, Eisenhower also

        ‘…. noted that the technological revolution of previous decades had been fed by more costly and centralized research, increasingly sponsored by the federal government.

        “Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields… ,” Eisenhower warned. “Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity.”

        While continuing to respect discovery and scientific research, he said, “We must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

      • Lebowski genmay

        So when you omit data points you are still just giving us facts, but not all of them. The scientific method is… You have a hypothosis and you test to verify it or not. What we have now are “scientists” that have a fanatical belief and test to backup their belief. Any scientist that says Settled Science, isn’t a scientist. In an ecology of BILLIONS of years, using a 100 year window, you can’t form a pattern. How did the Earth emerge from the last ice age if the global temperature only rises due to man made sources? The planet goes through cycles mainly controlled by that giant ball of energy in the sky called the Sun. When the sun gets warmer, so does the Earth.
        BTW, the “science” that is funding by the government is usually for government uses, IE to further government agendas. Science is done in private labs all over the world every day because companies want to develop better more efficient means to create and build products.

        Have you noticed those institutions known as Universities? ….throughout history, they were the unbiased centers of open debate and independent research. A number of the more successful became quite rich on patents on technology. ….THAT is where research funding should be found, just like in the rest of the private sector.
        Unfortunately, they are now hot-beds of political profiteering and true research and free exploration of ideas are suppressed …. all thanks to political extortion.
        Government money is NOT a blessing, but a curse.
        I assure you, if the government subsidized fast food, we’d soon discover no one could afford it without the government paying 90% of its (newly inflated) cost.
        Look at the oil industry:
        WITHOUT funding from the government, and largely over the objections of regulators, the oil industry developed horizontal drilling and hydrolytic fracturing, enabling an explosion of energy independence world-wide ….. if only the governments would allow it.
        (Oh, and the terrible “subsidies” to the Oil Industry are essentially the R&D credit that is available to everyone, and for which President Obama just signed a permanent extension.)
        In short:
        Free Enterprise will fund R&D out of the competitive advantage true knowledge and productive innovation that flows from honest R&D.
        It is easy to say, and impossible to prove either way, “well things would have been worse” if the government had not “invested” in X, Y or Z. ….precisely because it is easy to say, it is said; precisely because it cannot be proven, it rewards the lazy.
        Wean yourself and our society from the ideologically driven political gamesters (gangsters?) and we will see an explosion of job creation, productivity, wealth, and new, innovative companies and technologies.

        Gotta be a troll, that’s my suspicion. “As a recipient of said funds I would like to ask you how we should fund scientific research without federal dollars.” Ever heard of soliciting funds from those that would believe in your research? Novel idea huh? Maybe if you could solicit funds from donors believing you could recycle sunlight, you wouldn’t need goverment funds either.

        Funding can come from private philanthropists and foundations. This model is not new, and the Smithsonian Institution employed this model from its inception. In fact, philanthropy is how much of science was funded before politicians figured they could use “science” to manipulate voters. The American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, etc. get their funding from donations, and provide grants for a great deal of research.

        Second, if you are an honest scientist (but I repeat myself, for science requires unyielding honesty), then you would know that science starts with a null hypothesis. This assumption of hardcore skepticism that there is no effect of an experimental condition under study prevents the scientist from the bias of “discovering” findings that fit a pre-determined expectation that prompted the investigation in the first place.

        Third, analysis of data is not up to others “to interpret as they see fit.” Science requires replication of conditions until the results recur time-after-time so there is no room for interpretation. And if the predicted outcomes do not recur, then the conditions are dirty, the experiment is a mess, and the “findings” are worthless: this is the current state of climate “science” whereby all the [apocalyptic] predictions have failed to occur. In fact, those climate predictions from 5, 10, 15, 20, 25-years ago have been dramatic failures. Since the predicted climate apocalypse has not occurred, nor even a rise in global temperature over the last 17+ years, it is clear that those benefiting from climate science funding are behaving more like a cult than real scientists. (The Climate Catastrophe Cult is an issue for anthropologists and sociologists to study.)

        Fourth, if you were a real scientist then you would further know that scientists are human beings, and are subject to extremes of self-delusion and subtle biases that will affect their work. In fact, many “findings” in medicine, pharmacology, and the social sciences are simply not able to be replicated, while others have been found to be simply fraudulent invention or manipulation of data. For a fuller elaboration of this point, see http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21588057-scientists-think-science-self-correcting-alarming-degree-it-not-trouble .

        Fifth, it is clear that you are not a scientist, but a troll, for you are so blind about these matters of science, and the scientific method. And you know, the intentional misdirection and misinforming of others shows lack of intellectual integrity, if not outright malice towards others.

        Finally, as Professor Glenn Reynolds says: “I will believe that burning carbon fuels are a problem when the people who tell us they are a problem start living like it”…Note the hypocrisy of Al Gore and our president (and family) who jet all around the world for vacations and golfing, etc. without one care for their carbon footprint. … Not by their words, but by their actions will they be known (i.e. found out).

    • muhamedikbar

      It’s funny, when I was in college I took a course as an elective titled….the history of science. A few takeaways from the course….everyone should be required to take the course. science has been wrong over the course of history WAY more often than they’ve been correct as It’s evolving, what works today will not be in 50, 100, 200 years. lastly, we got in-depth into funding, and throughout the years up until the past 100-200 or so, science was funded mainly by the church, they had an agenda then. now it’s funded by government (church for liberals), they have an agenda now. no matter who funds it they have an agenda…no one can deny this, it’s indisputable and in no way objective or free from bias.

    • Maus

      They love to say, 98% of climate scientists agree that blah-blah-blah-blah. They add, “….and the vast majority of studies confirm…”. Okay, so how can the “science” be “settled”? It can’t be, because under the long-accepted Scientific Method, if a theory is not validated 100% of the time, then something is wrong with the theory. Also, in “hard science” tests and models are refined to give a better validation of the theory, rather than tweaked until you get the results you want.

      When someone wants to include the East Anglia e-mails in a “serious discussion” about so-called climate change, we can start moving forward to exposing this fraud for what it is. The “hockey stick” graph has been proven to be terribly flawed, so that’s why Lefties moved on to “climate change”. It’s a house of cards that were dealt from the bottom of the trick deck that the Left likes to use.

    Laughing at the Global Warming Fruit Cakes. Here is my solution to their myth. If a liberal business can build an electric car that has the conveniences of a modern car and costs $22,000, I WILL BUY IT. If a liberal company can build solar cells that will cost $1,000 and will generate enough power for my house, I WILL BUY IT. If a liberal company will build a wind generator that will power my house for $1,000, I WILL BUY IT. If a liberal company will come up with a replacement for fossil fuels that work as well, I WILL BUYT IT. Here is the rub,,,, liberal FLAP THEIR LIPS wanting republicans to solve their problem. Stop complaining, stop flapping your lips and pointing fingers,,,,,,,, WE WILL BUY IT. Until then,,,,, shut the h*** up you whiners.

      • SRussell55

        Correct. it is about money,,,,,,, the money they want from us.

    • Raffi256

      The funny thing is that’s a likely outcome. Rooftop solar power already beats out local utility rates in a lot of areas of the country, even without government subsidies, and in 15 years that’ll be true almost everywhere. You could provide the entire world’s energy needs with a 16 sq mile solar array in some bright corner of Arizona, it’s totally the future.

      • SRussell55

        I’m not an expert. But I do know the average home, using AC, needs more than 30 solar panels on their home. Entry level costs with installation $15,000, usually a lot more. Solar only works if the sun is shining bright so night you are still using utility systems. The payoff will take several years. And, at some point, just like electric cars cause reduced gasoline taxes for our roads, the government will need to tax your solar panels at a huge rate,,,,,,, just because. This is something that liberals need to solve rather than flapping their lips all day on global warming. I have heard enough,,,,,,,, try to solve it yourself rather than making me feel bad. JUST DO IT.

        • Raffi256

          Well there’s a lot of companies that lease rooftop solar systems to you with no upfront costs (I sound like a salesman now). The lease rate is always less than your electric utility cost, so you end up saving money. So they only do business in areas where they can undercut local utilities. And you only pay them for usage so they have an incentive to maintain the system properly.

          If you project out, and assume millions of people will adopt solar at some point, you’ll have what’s essentially a massive distributed power utility, where most of the power is generated at the point of use, which is way more efficient than transmitting it from a power plant hundreds of miles away. Traditional utility companies will turn into “wire companies” where they just own the wires linking one building to another and distributing power loads. Large batteries are necessary to provide buffering and nighttime power, but it’s all doable. Lots of old power companies will fight tooth and nail though, and likely look to government for protection.

          • SRussell55

            WOW,,, you are a salesman. Here is the spin. Every single day,,,,, a company goes bankrupt. Every sing day,,,, a company announces something is wrong. Every single day a company will announce a major change. Every one of them. These roof top companies TODAY,,,, man,,, they are great. FREE,,,, free,,, free. For life??? What is the company says,,,,”Our revenue is down and we need to stop offering free power and we need to start charging you for it.” Do you think that (could) happen based on daily business news stories? And,,,, after the utility companies shut down generating plants because,,, YOU USE SOLAR,,,,, what do you do? Oh,,,, and we know the government is going to need more because you aren’t paying taxes on your utility bill like you DID. Your idea is digging a hole that at some day you may/may/not, bury yourself in. Good luck with that.

      • coffeedrinker88

        That’s not 100% true. I used to live in an ideal area for solar panels (hi desert, 300+ days of sunny skies per year, moderate temps in the winter and rarely above 110 in the summer) where, for about $30,000, I could get a solar panel system that would have powered my home and basically reduce my electric bill to net zero dollars for the year. The problem with that is it was about a 6.5 year ROI but the panels had a usable life of 5 years, the storage batteries about 7 years and the inverter about 10 years. So just as I would have been seeing the cost benefit of the purchase I would have had to start replacing the equipment.

        Like SRussell55 stated, it’s not a complicated formula, it has nothing to do with green or not green if a better option is provided people will buy it. If it’s not a better option people won’t… no matter how much the govt. tries to scare people.

    It is difficult to pass restrictive regulations and controls without the means to justify such. Climate change serves such a purpose. For politicians, such regulations are ‘necessary based on scientific study’. An easier justification than stating they believe that government can make better personal decisions than can the individual. When carbon credits are issued to the population, those in the political, cultural, and entertainment elite will be exempt from such.

    • coffeedrinker88

      The set up monitoring stations at locations around the world, collect the data and then average it over a period of time. One thing not mentioned often is that the global warming administrators (I can’t call them scientists) when the data was not supporting their guesses got smart and they would place their monitoring stations in a place that would grow in the next 5 years. So they would monitor it and when buildings started going in and roadways were built around the monitoring station the average temp in that area would go up and they would point to that and say… see, the temp is going up and it’s because of man. But they would leave out the part when monitoring stations in non populated areas showed a drop in average temp now they just leave those monitoring stations out of the equation all together.

    • Rick from Rye

      Since 1970 they can use satellites to measure global temps, including the oceans. Land based measuring is subject to flaws: NOAA has been forced to close 10-20% of their temp measuring sites because they were located on airport tarmacs, too close to building heat exhausts etc. In addition, the shutting of Siberian temp stations in the 1990′s due to Russian financial crises is reported to have produced much/most of the reported warming in the 1990′s. Warmists will note ‘yes, Chicagoi was cold, but someplace else was warm’. They will not mention that temps are flat to down over the past 18 years. Any discussion of ‘warmest temps ever’ must be taken with a grain of salt: the thermometer was invented in 1650, anything before then is a guess. Keeping that caveat in mind: it was 4-7 degrees warmer in the medieveal optimum (900-1300), and even warmer in the Roman optimum (100-400), yet the oceans did not swell 20 feet, the world did not burn to a crisp. Mankind flourished, and we call those warm temps an optimum. People survive in the mideast with temps well above the 65 degree global average. Cold temps kill.

    4 – Then they perform experiments to test their hypotheses.
    5 – The computer models create data exactly as expected.
    6 – Then they get real-life data that doesn’t fit the hypothesized data.
    7 – Then they alter the data or revise their hypotheses to fit the data by back-dating it.

    Psychopathy is the most complex and most destructive of mental disorders. A list of people assessed as psychopathic includes Jeff Skilling at Enron and Bernie Ebbers at WorldCom, corporate psychopaths who destroyed their own companies, damaged the careers of thousands of their employees, and destroyed billions of dollars of corporate value. Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy were serial murder psychopaths, Bundy murdered dozens of young women and Gacy murdered dozens of young men. Casey Anthony murdered her own daughter so she could party, and was assessed as a psychopath.

    Awareness of psychopathy is building more and more rapidly, and we are now beginning to realize that financial and political psychopaths are doing major damage to our Republic. Dr. Clive Boddy has made a credible argument that the 2008 worldwide financial meltdown was the product of financial psychopaths working with political psychopaths. If you lost money in 2008 and your financial well-being has been declining, thank a psychopath.

    One characteristic of psychopaths is that they ignore real world problems (employment, national debt) to concentrate on non-problems (global warming). Non-problems can be emotionally charged and can be used to create social tensions and polarizations. Psychopaths do not care one way or the other about global warming, but can gain money and power by exploiting the polarizations that they have created. If Al Gore cared about global warming he could live in a smaller mansion and avoid flying around the world in his private jet liner.

    Psychopathy is complex but can be studied and understood, to great profit.

Hitler polarized German society on an xenophobic basis, us-versus-them. Stalin and all Communists polarize the world between classes, as do neo-Marxists such as Obama. Militant Islamists polarize the world on a religious basis, and non-militant Muslims are worse than Infidels.
        By far, most psychopaths operate on a family and community level, and there is much info on the internet concerning psychopath enablers on a local level. There is not so much information for major political psychopaths, but Antonio Gramsci created “Cultural Communism” eighty years ago and fills that void. Gramsci proposed that cultural institutions be infiltrated and captured: academia, media, political parties, churches. The Democratic Party, the Mainstream Marxist Media, and the Marxist professors are children of prescient Gramsci’s efforts. Psychopaths are not stupid, but they are dedicated to destroying themselves and everyone else that they can, supporters and opponents alike.

        To quote myself: “Psychopathy is the most complex and most destructive of mental disorders.”

        Generalizations are not useful in dealing with the topic of psychopathy. Every psychopath is unique in the neurological and environmental factors that shaped his or her development. There are about three million psychopaths in the USA, few of whom are sufficiently ambitious and intelligent to become corporate executives or senior
        politicians. But one percent of three million is 30,000 psychopaths in high positions. Most psychopaths operate within families and communities, and perhaps there are about twenty-thirty percent of prison populations that are psychopathic.

        All psychopaths are manipulative and identify vulnerable enablers to help in accomplishing their corrupt, larcenous, and murderous aims. This is true of all psychopaths operating in any environment. We are indebted to Antonio Gramsci, an Italian socialist that was active about eighty years ago, who provided a template for psychopath enablers. Gramsci proposed a “Cultural Communism” that was to infiltrate respected organizations with the object of capturing them for Marxism. All your academic, media, and political psychopath enablers are grand-children of Antonio Gramsci.

        Major psychopaths can be identified by Dr. Robert Hare’s Psychopathy Check List (PCL) and by neurological exams (EEGs, fMRIs, CAT scans). Psychopath enablers have deficient personalities that require a boost from a stronger psychopathic personality in order to function. This pattern seems fixed in stone, and was evident in the rise of all Marxist states including Nazi Germany, and in the other great psychopathic system, militant Islam (as opposed to non-militant Islam).

        We are engaged in a struggle for survival against psychopathic systems (Obama, Putin, and militant Islam), and there has been no similar struggle since the defeat of Germany and Japan in WWII. All psychopaths fail, and create massive social and economic damages for supporters and for opponents as they fail.

        Good luck.

        All psychopaths fail, as you might expect of the world’s worst mental disorder. Psychopathic failures entail massive social and economic losses for both the psychopath’s supporters and for his opponents. WWII was a the occasion of the failure of German and Japanese psychopaths. The collapse of the Soviet Union saw the failure of Marxist psychopaths. Obama and his enablers will fail; the only question is, how costly will it be for the rest of us?

        That deadly ban, augured by Rachel Carson’s pathetically unscientific Silent Spring, was no different than the agenda driven politically motivated Climate Change pseudoscience which Dr. Coleman is calling out.

        • Raffi256

    “The climate of Earth has never been “normal” or stable. It has continuously changed through this planet’s 4.5 billion year history. Powerful storms, floods, droughts, heat waves and ice and snow storms have come and gone as long as Earth has existed.” This says it all and it is perfectly logical. But I fear logic is in very short supply among the brainwashed.

  • John Trapp

    The very basic data one has to look at is just the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere. It’s 0.04% or zero point zero. The mass of the atmosphere is 5 quadrillion metric tons which might as well be infinity when it comes to man. For man to raise that percentage of 0.04% to even 0.05% would be absolutely impossible, there is just not enough cars, factories, coal burning in the world to do that, and even if we could, it would still be a zero point zero percentage. Plus since when did CO2 ever cause a greenhouse effect? Water vapor is THE cause of that, not CO2, it’s how Venus became a greenhouse planet. But there’s not big money in water is there. Al Gore couldn’t have made a billion dollar fortune trying to ban and regulate the ocean. What people have to do is STOP voting Democrat! STOP IT! That is the REAL crisis going on here. I’m not saying Republicans are perfect, but the Democrat party has gone so far left in the past 30 years it’s destroying the country. I mean for Gods sake, we got a hardcore Marxist in the White house, and one who is sympathetic to radical Islam, a guy who actually assisted radical Muslims in taking over Egypt which is why the Egyptians rebelled. How insane is that? A country that is mostly Muslim actually rebelled because the government became TOO Muslim. That’s the kind of psychopath we have in the White house.

    A lot of people don’t seem to realize that making you feel bad is the whole point. Young people are coming into this thing on the tail end, all full of pee and vinegar. Alternative fuels are NOTHING NEW. This has been going on for a long time. The problem is alternative fuels can’t compete with fossil fuels and they know it. So, the only way to get people to buy your product is to FORCE them to buy your product (government health care anyone?). How do you do that?…Fear and self loathing. Fear is a powerful motivator and the scumbags pushing global warming know it. Nobody really wanted their product until they were guilt tripped into the whole “we’re killing the planet” (weep) garbage.
    If climate alarmists REALLY wanted to “save the planet” their energy sources would be really cheap, readily available, and easy to make. Alternative fuels are NONE of those things.

  • Dude

    When did science stop following the scientific method? The man-made global warming theory was proposed, then it was tested by comparing the predictions in the models to actual results. These results did not match the predictions at all.

    Thus, according to the scientific method, ie. science, the theory is FALSE. Who exactly is “anti-science” again?

    • Raffi256

      The theory isn’t true or false, it just has some percentage of certainty, but it’s non-zero. Like you know it’s relatively accurate if multiple models converge on the same thing. However even if it’s only 1% likely that man-made global warming is true, it would be a mistake to actually run the experiment and find out if we’re right or not. Science is a great and all, but there’s some experiments that shouldn’t be ran.

      • Dude

        The theory failed. That is obviously true. Scientists need to examine the results of the failed theory and draw the proper conclusions. That is how knowledge accrues and science advances.

        There is no such thing as science by consensus or a theory having some identifiable percentage of certainty. That’s absurd.

        Making major economic policy based on unproven (or in this case disproven) theories is incredibly dangerous and stupid. Well, it’s stupid for We the People. For the puppet masters pushing this theory, it’s a great way to increase their power and money.

        And that’s what it’s really all about, my friend – increasing power and control of a small elite group over the people.

        • Raffi256

          Actually it’s a central tenant of the scientific method that you cannot prove ANYTHING with 100% certainty and that is certainly true with climate models that are all inherently probabilistic anyway, just like weather forecasts are.

          If you asked a bunch of climate scientists, do you believe that it’s certain mankind is the driver behind climate change today? They’d say “No, you cannot know this for certain”. But if you asked, should we keep pumping trillions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere and hope that nothing bad ever happens, they’d say “No way”.

          Sure there are political forces at work however, you should counter them by proposing solutions that don’t require the state, not by attacking the underlying science.

          • Dude

            They may say “no way”, but the science does not back that conclusion. Their opinions are not science.

            The solution is a true free market, which is the best economic structure to create innovations in power generation and in everything else. If you really believe that man-made global warming is a real threat, then the worst thing you could do is to give more power and money to government to solve the perceived problem.

            Our government is corrupt beyond belief and cannot be trusted with any more power or money from us.

          • Raffi256

            There’s a lot of science behind the climate change, there’s also a lot of bullshit. Horrible reporting is to blame, it takes a ton of effort to separate fact from fiction. I used to be a big climate skeptic, but then realized that the skeptic arguments were even more ridiculous than most of the stuff spewing from climate change folks, I called them out on a ton of bullshit. So ultimately, I’m just willing to accept the non-zero possibility of man-made climate change, since after looking at both sides it seems like a reasonable thing, and there is a massive shitstorm of evidence, I mean you could spend your whole life reading about this stuff…

            “If you want to disprove all of it, you’ve got your work cut out for you.”

            I’m sorry, but the AGW THEORY has yet to be proven. We cannot disprove something that has not been proven. The burden is upon the AGW believers to definitively prove the theory of man caused global warming by strict scientific methods. That means including ALL data collected in an honest process that does not favor one consensus. This has not been done to this point. The act of collecting surface temperatures is so distorted that it is not reliable. By eliminating data points that don’t fit the narrative, the AGW community has invalidated their conclusions thus failing to prove their theory.

    So all we need propose is to build a pipeline network to capture the melting polar ice and Greenland glaciers and transport it thru Canada to where it is hot. We can set up sprinklers misters and recharge our reservoirs, lakes, and underground aquifers. Let’s work with what we have. Right? I am sure they will want to pursue that plan. Puts people to work helping people. And if designed right it can generate enough power thru generating stations and siphons, just like Mulholland did before WWII for Los Angeles. No new technology is required. Lots of jobs created., cool clear water for everyone, deserts transformed to beautiful farmland producing food for the hoards of destitute, asthma cured because of the misters that reduce smog and cool and humidify the air, And there is enough water trapped in Greenland, antiarctia and the polar regions to last us about 3000 years and longer if we recycle it. AND ALL BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING. I say BRING IT ON…!!!!! Or we can try and stop it in order to have the same crappy unpredictable weather we have always had. So would you rather have cool clear water from the north or Drought, petulance, disease and death?

    • Raffi256

      CO2 is discussed because it acts as a temperature amplifier. I.e. CO2 blocks infrared from radiating into space raising temperature, raising temperature decreases the ability of the deep oceans to store CO2, in turn raising the CO2 level even further, and so on in a loop. That’s why folks raise the alarm bells on CO2 emissions, because there is a danger of setting up a run-away feedback loop.

    In the meantime, i can say two things that render such modeling useless. No engineer (I am one) would model the “heat sink” without taking account of the “heat source” particularly if the interest is in what is the output of a heat source to heat sink system. Yet we do this with global warming. Try applying for funds to study the sun? A solar astrophysicist would starve. Yet “Google” this: long period irregular variable. If you do you find that astrophysicists characterize our sun as one. Hmmmmm. Number two. I dwell in very large numbers for other reasons (numbers measured not by zeros but by thousands of feet in pica ten pitch). Using bounding assumptions i doubt (have not looked at this in detail) that the amounts of CO2 produced by the earths fauna far dwarfs anything mankind could produce through manmade functions, and the capacity of the earth’s flora to consume our manmade CO2 is far greater than our ability to tax the natural system with manmade functions. If we use the “Jay Forrester” digitized method for modeling the flora – fauna interaction with respect to O2 and CO2 we would have what electronics engineers would classify as a “push pull” amplifier, which is a rock solid amplifier design. [Amplifiers utilize feedback loops to boost input signals to a desired stable output.] The modeling would show that practically nothing can shift the balance between O2 output of the earth’s flora, its consumption by fauna, and then the corresponding output of CO2 from the earth’s fauna, and its consumption by the earth’s flora. In other words it does not matter what output of CO2 occurs from manmade sources, the balance cannot change any more than one side or another side of a push pull hi fi amplifier can favor the positive or the negative output of the source sine wave. One side or the other grows or reduces to stabilize the input of CO2 from manmade sources to a stable output.

    • Atilla Thehun

      Well, almost. Amplifiers usually use negative feedback to reduce distortion. This actually reduces the output signal level. Further, what happens on the “top” half of a wave going through a push pull amplifier doesn’t affect the “bottom” half. That’s why you can have asymetrical waveforms. Maybe you want to think about a phase locked loop as a better example.

    If they are using feedback loops in the models, the results are rigged (either intentionally or unintentionally) to deliver the output wanted by the modeler. I have proven such with a Jay Forrester model of “the Limits to Growth.” Simply design the circuit to deliver the output wanted. If you want unmitigated disaster from global warming, simply have at least one more positive feedback than negative feedbacks. If you want steady state, see comment below, have an equal number of positive and negative feedback loops. If you want the output to crash downwards, then have at least one more negative feedback loop than the positive feedback loops. This result always happens whether the loop models are two to one, one to one, or one thousand to one thousand to one. Inputs and relationship assumptions only shape the curve and provide amplitude to the curves, but the end result is always a function of the numerical majority of one sign or another of the feedback loops. So if i were a global warming modeler, and i do all the research and work i want to do, and create a model and the result is steady state…. well that cannot be right. I have to change the model output to unmitigated disaster by adding one feedback loop or changing a sign because that is what makes sense to me, not steady state.

      People are quick to attack others when they mistype something. Problem is nobody reads the comments, they just see the ones on the top screen and attack/support, then off to the next article. Thsi means the people who were mad at whatever you typed wont see your correction, and still think they have “won” some argument, probably calling you a liberal or something because they didnt understand what you type, or read something you didnt mean to word that way. If I see something I dont agree with, I usually ask them to explain, then proceed to rip them a new one, factually, and backed up with sources. I get called names at that point, but that is the sign of a weak argument.

        It is a simple Saul Alinsky tactic when someone cannot possibly defend their position. It is just like playing the race card, a perfect example that the person has nothing to support their position.

        Remember Saul gave the lying left their dishonest debate tool belt. He told them never debate the actual topic if their position was weak or zero but to, ridicule their opponent, attack the credibility of the source, attack spelling or punctuation…, or if all else fails play the race card.

      As opposed to Gore, Soros, Obama and all their fellow travelers who lost their shirts on the Chicago Climate Exchange because they could not get their Carbon Tax Credit scam operating. They were positioned to make billions until the e-mails exposing the Global Warming hoax leaked out.

      How come after Al was so sure the current coastlines would be underwater by now he went and built his mansion right on the coast?

      Now, they are doubling down on the CCX in order to recoup their loses. NBC has been beating the Climate Change Drum even last night re-showing footage of heavy rains as proof of climate change. Strange they did not report the lowest number of tornadoes on record this year.Funny how when lying progressives don’t want cold weather to ruin their scam they remind us Weather is not Climate but when they want to make bad Weather an example of Climate Change all of a sudden weather is climate.

    Too many obstacles to the theory that Carbon dioxide is a leading cause for global warming. First the oceans absorb a good deal of that gas. Secondly the oceans are the prime product of oxygen. Thirdly even if all the regulations are implemented in the US against Carbon Dioxide emissions we have no control on the emissions of other nations such as China and India. Even if we do have control on other nations the carbon foot print produced by earth alone is large and that includes the animal kingdom.

  • Consultofactus

    Let’s do a little critical thinking about a key concept in AGW known as the “global mean temperature” (aka average global temperature). And for the sake of this discussion let’s forget about the vagaries of actually measuring temperature and pretend it’s about as easy and accurate as finding out a person’s age. As it turns out accurately measuring temperature data is not as easy as you think, but let’s ignore that for now.
    Our critical thinking will take the form of a thought experiment calculating the ”global mean age” of humans to a very high degree of accuracy. This thought experiment will have access to the time and date of birth of every person on Earth and will be updated continuously to reflect births and deaths. This highly accurate tabulation is possible because this is a thought experiment. And typical of thought experiments a few hypothetical quantities will be used for expository purposes so don’t waste your time debating minutia – stick to the big picture. Also for you public school products the arithmetic mean is what we’re talking about here and it is identical to what you know as the “average”.
    It turns out that the global mean age of humans was 27.214483 years on January 1, 1993 and by January 1, 2013 decreased by 0.1537 years. Sounds plausible but just what does that tell us? Not to be repetitious, but the accuracy of resulting “global mean age” is excellent. And remember, the thought experiment does not lack for sample size – it includes the entire population of the Earth tabulated continuously.
    Time for critical thinking – what does one make of the fact that the global mean age has decreased 0.1537 years since 1993? Is that “good” or “bad” for humanity? Did the average age decrease because of an increase in the birthrate or because more seniors passed on – or both? Also we know that infant mortality, gender mortality and longevity are dependent on many geographical, socio-economic, genetic and biological factors. But all this detail is ground to a slurry by averaging disparate data points in some gigantic statistical sausage maker of a calculation. The fact is that this incredibly accurate and all-inclusive global mean age statistic is next to useless in developing informed conclusions about the state of humanity and worse yet, invites conjecture based on “anecdotal texturing “.
    Now back to AGW and the much touted average global temperature…just why should the air temperature on a street corner in Bonn, Germany be averaged with the air temperature over a soy bean field 61 miles due north of Kansas City with the air temperature over a spot in the ocean 57 degrees south latitude 151 degrees east longitude? Are those data significantly coupled and if so how does that coupling change over time? What did that system look like 100 or 500 or 1,000 years ago – no one knows! And even if the Earth were literally covered with absolutely accurate temperature sensors the global mean temperature would leave us grasping at straws just as the global mean age did in out thought experiment.
    And yet this statistical phantasm of a “global average temperature” is supposed to be the oracle by which we view the immense complexity of global climate? What a joke!

  • Will Malven

    The tragedy is, it doesn’t matter how much contradictory data is published, how many real (not on the AGW payroll) scientist contradict the AGW dogma, or how little of what they have been predicting would occur actually does occur, liberals will never back away from AGW.

    It’s a religion to them. It is not about science, it’s about belief and they have bought the propaganda hook, line, and sinker.

    “Science” that doesn’t allow debate, “science” that tries to shout down or suppress opposition, “science” that is “settled,” isn’t science at all, it’s politically motivated dogma.

    • Mike

      Ah, you are missing an important point. We have a current administration who IN THEIR OWN WORDS have told us we are the problem and are deliberately trying to lessen the influence of the USA world wide. I guess reasonable people could debate that position and I would be glad to take the position the world is a better place because of the USA than a world without the USA and maybe the former Soviet Union and how about total world domination by Muslims.

    Conservatives need to look through the lie and realize that Cap In Trade HAS ALREADY STARTED. The Waxman Markey bill from 2009 and California’s AB32 DEMAND a 60% GHG reduction in the next 20 years and n 83% reduction by 2050. To start with, soon kiss wood stoves, fireplaces, pellet stoves, yard burning goodbye. Next, feel the increased price of TRAVEL. Travel is considered by the greenies as the main contributor to GHG. Next they come for your homes, restricting sales until the home is updated for energy efficiency.
    Rush and the gang whine almost every day now about the crazy climate related proposals, as if these are some liberal pipe dreams. They are already screwing you. ICLEI canvassed every county, city and town in your country and influenced your local commissioners and planning departments to include severe limitations to GHG in their GENERAL PLAN, which dictates all future land use.
    Deborah Tavares (YouTube) ties this together by describing the CAP (climate action plan) that every locality must conform with or lose state, fed and NGO funding.
    We need to stop laughing about cow farts and rising seas and concentrate on REPEALING Waxman Markey and AB 32 as well as Cap In Trade. Did you know California is already the #2 carbon market behind the EU? And it just got started.

      I would have no problem discussing CO2 with a liberal as long as that discussion did not have the sword of redistribution hanging overhead.

      It would be so helpful to have the discussion/debate/REAL scientific method used to evaluate the “theory” without the political hysteria.

      First explain temperature changes on other planets in our solar system. No SUVs there.

      Then and only then if CO2 can be PROVEN to be a threat, we can evaluate the human part of the CO2 equation and if it makes sense to cripple the energy supply to our economic engine all while knowing fully well China and India will continue to spew out CO2 like a galactic cow fart.

      No, progressives want to start stealing our money, limiting our growth without any plan to stop China/India and without first PROVING there is a problem.

  • Marty Moose

    I am going to have to respectfully disagree with you, Dr. Coleman, regarding your comment on the “dramatic increase in the cost of corn”. It is the increasing world demand for meat and our government’s policy to rent the least productive land (CRP program) from the farmer that has driven the cost of corn higher rather than our ethanol policies. Only in years of severe drought (such as 2012) or severe wet (such as 1993 or 2013) has the price of corn exceeded the cost of inflation from a baseline year of your choosing. The production of ethanol was originally subsidized by the government through the policies of tax credits (refunding the taxes paid on each gallon produced). Now that the industry has matured, those tax credits are no longer available and the ethanol industry must compete with traditionally refined gasoline on a dollar for dollar basis. One could argue that the EPA’s mandate that the fuel industry be required to use 13 billion + gallons of ethanol each year is a form of subsidy but, even without the mandate, ethanol is the most economical and ecologically friendly alternative to reach the EPA’s octane requirements for a gallon of gasoline. The bi-products of ethanol production are DDG’s (dried distillers grain) and corn oil. DDG’s are a high protein staple feed ingredient used for livestock so the net decrease in feed available for livestock due to ethanol is negligible. Corn oil can be used for many things from cooking oils to bio-diesel. The biggest drawback of ethanol production is the volume of water it takes to process the corn. We have seen a temporary decrease in the meat supply, particularly beef (herd sizes are down due to lengthy droughts in the south and lack of productive pasturelands) and pork (PED virus epidemic leading to severe mortality losses among piglets) which is causing an appropriate market reaction of higher retail prices. This has nothing to do with the price of corn. Corn prices are 50% lower today than they were at this time just 2 years ago. By far, the greatest increase in the cost of our food is due to the correspondingly higher costs of transporting that food. In the end, however, you and I both still spend a smaller portion of our income on food than anyone else in the world. The market forces will drive us to expand our beef herds and develop a vaccine for the PED virus in pork which will, eventually, lower their base costs. If prices do not come down on the retail end at the same time, it will be because the cost of transporting those products has risen even further. Be sure you thank the Lord for the American farmer the next time you ask His blessing on your food. (P.S. I’m in total agreement with everything else you said about global warming. Thank you for your insight.)

    • Phaelnot

      Let me guess, subsidized farmer, midwest…maybe Iowa. Forgot about the blizzard in the Dakotas, Wyoming Etc. where “cattle” were not subsidized? Ethanol is the most economical and ecologically friendly alternative? You must be growing corn. And…not to mention the damage Ethanol does to older car and truck fuel systems. Look, I grew up in the Dakotas, ranchers were driving 20 year old pick-ups while the “subsidized” farmers were driving new 4WDs every year, and would always load up on the “free” cheese with bumper stickers reading “It’s hell to be poor”. Go vote Democratic again, you need the subsidies.

      • Marty Moose

        Nice try. Not a farmer. Not growing corn. Not subsidized. Never voted for someone calling themselves a Democrat (although I held my nose and voted for Romney which was pretty close). My pickup is a ’98 and I pump 10% ethanol blended gas into it all the time. No fuel system damage after 180,000 miles. I suppose we could go back to the good ‘ole days of leaded gas but, as the EPA guidelines for octane requirements currently stand, ethanol is the most price competitive and ecologically friendly option when compared to the oil derivative competitors. The farmers driving the new 4WD trucks in your area were probably taking advantage of the tax-deductability of their work vehicles just like any salesman can deduct the expense of driving his Ford Fusion for business purposes. I grew up poor on a farm (you did get Iowa correct) and would be more than willing to live the poor life of a small farmer if it were just me. Fortunately, I have a wife and 2 children I’m responsible for supporting and cannot afford to take on the risk of being a farmer. If you are not a farmer, I would wager that your income is not at risk every time it rains or doesn’t rain or some other weather event. I agree that livestock farmers should also have insurance available to them just like the grain farmer does. Just last year, I know of a turkey farmer who lost 100,000 30-pound birds due to a long hot spell. Being a typical farmer, however, he absorbed the cost himself and replaced those birds with more, hoping to turn a little profit on the next batch. I actually work in an industry that competes directly with the local ethanol facility but I’m still objective enough to see the overall value of the product – it creates a profitable market for corn growers and reduces the amount of tax dollars going directly to the farmer in some other form of price subsidy (i.e. PIK or LDP). Thank your parents for me for being ranchers and doing their best to raise a little food for the rest of us who like to eat.

        • Phaelnot

          My pick up is an ’89, grew up west dakotas, college east dakotas, got tired of the farmers bitchin’ when the ranchers were takin’ it in the shorts. My predjudice. Thanks for responding. I just hope they don’t go for the 15% Ethanol, that will be the death of my ’89. My income depends on clients that are unsure of what’s next, as a small business owner. Maybe I should consider farming…thanks for your politeness, wish I could say the same for myself.

  • pugwis

    Duh! The clue to the failure of the theory of global warming was Al Gore. Once he built that band wagon for everyone to jump on, for the money to flow into his pocket, the theory was suspect. When the government climbed onboard, every thinking person on earth knew the wagon was carrying a load of bulshyt and Al was the driver. Notice the terror of global warming in China, India, Germany, Russia, Spain, Africa, and the other 196 countries? Al didn’t go over quite as well over there, except in Swedish and Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize judges. Well, you have to accept the fact that scientists have families, want to buy new cars and take vacations. Most scientists have a tough time finding a job. Using their degrees to add credence to ridiculous theories that pay big money is a human characteristic. Now they have a job as long as they keep the media and politicians hyped on CO2. How many German scientists suddenly “discovered” that Jewish blood was different than Aryan blood in WWII. The leading scientific country on earth at the time suddenly believed in mysticism, bogus biology, and mythology. Same as global warming. If the world does heat or cool, it isn’t because of humans or belching cattle. “The Earth Abides” is more than a science fiction story. It is a fact of life. The earth does what the earth wants to do despite the fleas sucking its juices and crawling across its skin. We aren’t going to affect it.

    The lead investigator behind NASA’s SABER study, James Russell from Hampton University, informs us that “Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats”,* meaning when CO₂ gases rise into the upper atmosphere, which they must because they are robust absorption vehicles for heat (heat rises/cold falls), that’s when these formerly lower atmospheric gasses unload their heat packages, otherwise CO₂ and nitric oxide can’t be “natural thermostats”.

    You see, Ladies and Gentlemen, as we were taught in grade school (and as Meteorologists are instructed in Meteorology 101, proving the Meteorology profession was co-opted by Marxists), warm air rises and displaces the colder air atop. That colder air then moves back down towards the ground. As THE robust gasses for latching onto heat (Infrared Radiation/IR), [man-made] CO₂ and nitric oxide are therefore responsible for COOLING the planet to a greater degree then it would be otherwise. In other words, if man-made CO₂ and nitric oxide are decreased, all other variables remaining constant (such as the energy output of the Sun), global temperatures will dramatically INCREASE.

    It is during the night, when one side of the Earth isn’t being bombarded by light, that heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the lower atmosphere are especially adapt at displacing/replacing the greatly less heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere, and unloads their heat cargoes into space. This cycle continues all night. Hence, the more CO₂ and nitric oxide any particular area of the Earth has, the greater the cooling effect will be for that area.
    —————————————–
    *“Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats,” explains James Russell of Hampton University, SABER’s principal investigator. “When the upper atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) heats up, these molecules try as hard as they can to shed that heat back into space.” — http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/22mar_saber/

    As with everything else the left does, the whole climate change agenda is about nothing more than control and redistributing wealth.
    By mandating oppressive regulation, they can force behavior modification on the public and extort wealth from the private sector.
    In reality not one of these supposedly well meaning progressives give a hang about ecology and the hypocritical manor in which they conduct themselves in their personal lives proves it.
    Spewing all the manufactured, sensationally fatalistic mumbo jumbo in the world isn’t going to convince the public especially when they don’t see the predictions come to pass and they realize that their energy bills ‘will necessarily skyrocket’ when the left has anything to do with it.

    If he lies on-average 462 times daily for the next 2 years,
    462 X 730 = an overall growth of nearly 29 inches is predicted.

    Thank you John Coleman for speaking truth to power. The “Global Warming” scam is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated. There have been climate changes many times in the few billion years the earth has been around and most of them occurred well before man arrived on the scene. So even if the present “Global Warming” fraud were true, which is unlikely, it’s a real stretch of the imagination to blame it on man. Obama and the hucksters’ “solution” for this non-event is to undermine the American economy and to transfer sovereignty from the individual nations and surrender power to the UN. Wake up folks, Obama is a pathological liar and is trying to destroy our great nation.

    Considering the earth has been experiencing climate change since the earth first formed an atmosphere, it’s darn near impossible to pin global warming on man.

    Man-made global warming is a theory and predictions about global warming are
    made with computer models based on global warming theories.

    The theory dictates the model and the computer models confirm the theory.

    In scientific circles this is called ‘confirmation bias’.

    Let me see, the LAST report we got from the IPCC in Sept of 2013 showed NO WARMING for the last 18 years….and their excuse was that the Ocean “absorbed” all the heat…however, the ocean’s are not warming…so now comes the Great Deceiver to pound the Agenda home….so which is it? No warming according to the IPCC or TERRIBLE warming according to the Messiah and his minions? BTW – the ONLY “weather predictor” that continues to be nearly spot on (including this past Winter, where the Alarmists – INCLUDING our Beloved Overlord – said we would have above normal temps) was the Freaking 200 year old FARMERS ALMANAC ! They were the ONLY weather predictor that correctly called the Freakishly cold winter – IN ADVANCE….using their tried and true method of the Sun’s activity, history and their own “secret sauce”….Time for EVERYONE to stand up, call or email your Congressional Representatives and let them know you don’t buy this BS anymore !

    • http://batman-news.com Mizram

      From the IPCC report you mention:
      “Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any
      preceding decade since 1850 (see Figure SPM.1). In the Northern Hemisphere, 1983–2012
      was likely the warmest 30-year period of the last 1400 years (medium confidence). {2.4, 5.3}”
      .
      Where does it say there was no warming for the last 18 years?

      • TSZodiac

        Here’s a really good article on it, from BBC news – entitled “Global Warming PAUSE central to IPCC Climate report” -http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-24173504
        The IPCC itself acknowledges that this “pause” is occurring – and they blame it on the oceans absorbing the “warming”….hmmm….maybe the oceans weren’t hungry for warm in the 10 years prior to that or something?

        What I find hilarious is you use a quote that is SUPPOSED to support an argument for man made global warming, yet you don’t READ what you’re quoting….let me give you an example: You see “Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade”…but you FAIL to SEE the most important 2 words in the sentence…”SINCE 1850″ ! In the next sentence, you FAIL to READ and understand the word “LIKELY”….you know, for something that’s supposed to be “SETTLED SCIENCE”…the word “likely” seems oddly out of place – wouldn’t you agree? What does the word LIKELY mean? It means that THEY DON’T KNOW. As for the first sentence, “Since 1850″ is very telling because: does that mean that the warming stopped and then started again? Does that mean that we are simply experiencing a NATURAL cycle that our science hasn’t been around long enough to observe and understand?
        Like most AGW alarmists – your heart is in the right place, but you are being MISLED by interests that want your MONEY. You are a bad human who is causing the destruction of the planet, and you must PAY to correct it. The truth is that the world’s economies are collapsing – even Fed Chairperson Yellen said just yesterday that the US deficit will continue to grow and be unsustainable in 10 years. They need a new way to tax you and I ….
        Before I close, I URGE YOU to THINK FOR YOURSELF – the Archaeologic record is CHOCK FULL of incidents of climate change, and some can be RAPID… its why there are abandoned Viking settlements in Greenland (due to the onset of the “Little Ice Age” – Archaeologists will tell you that this onset happened within the space of a decade), its the reason that there are Marine fossils in the desert southwest of the US…. did these things happen because of the Vikings overuse of fossil fuels to power their personal watercraft, or because the dinosaurs were driving too many SUV’s ? OR – just possibly – was this due to a NATURALLY occurring cycle which we haven’t been around long enough to observe? These “scientists” want you to believe that they can ABSOLUTELY tell you – based on less than 300 years of observable data (and in some cases less than 200 years!) – what the climate is going to do …on a planet that is a BILLION years old ! Laughable…I think a much more “LIKELY” scenario is that a cabal of interests got together to take advantage of a Solar Cycle that would provide a 7-8 year period of higher temps…they bought a politician who they thought would be an American President to be their pitch man….one problem….he didn’t win, and then a war started (most likely by another cabal of interests – and MAYBE even to combat the other cabal’s interests). So they went to Hollywood and the environmentalists and made a movie to push their cause, and sent their pitch man ALL OVER THE WORLD in his private jet with an entourage of SUV’s to pitch their idea for a brand new CARBON TRADE market…problem is, the wars and opposition slowed their progress. They couldn’t get their agenda accomplished during the proper Solar Cycle…and temps started to drop (as they always do – all you have to do is go back and look at the pitch man’s graphs shown in the movie – they show a steady up and down temp curve until we come to the present when the pitchman’s graph just keeps going up). But the temps began to come down – or “paused” as the IPCC would have us believe….and then something really telling happened – the named changed from man made global warming to man made CLIMATE CHANGE….pure PR move to keep the movement alive as the warming stopped. Substantially ALL of the “predictions” made by the Global Warming crowd have never come to fruition – in fact, in MOST cases, the exact OPPOSITE has occurred. I live on the beach in Florida – our seas aren’t rising, in fact, the beach in my back yard keeps getting WIDER (more beach !). In 2013, the US experienced historic LOWS in Hurricanes, Tornados, wildfires, AND TEMPERATURES. We just had one of the coldest winters on record – does this mean we’re going to have an ICE AGE? Probably not – but, just like your quotes above, they show nothing but what humans have OBSERVED over the last 200-300 years. THINK FOR YOURSELF – stop believing “scientists” who were already caught cooking the books to support this agenda…AND bloated, greedy politicians who have a bigger “carbon footprint’ than everyone you know – COMBINED ! I have faith in you – read the words that are important – and watch the Farmers Almanac, because they continue to be FAR MORE correct in their predictions than do any of these paid schills that stand to make money off this scam !

What does the word LIKELY mean? It means that THEY DON’T KNOW. As for the first sentence, “Since 1850″ is very telling because: does that mean that the warming stopped and then started again? Does that mean that we are simply experiencing a NATURAL cycle that our science hasn’t been around long enough to observe and understand?

        Here’s a really good article on it, from BBC news – entitled
        “Global Warming PAUSE central to IPCC Climate report” -http://www.bbc.com/news/scienc…

        The IPCC itself acknowledges that this “pause” is occurring -
        and they blame it on the oceans absorbing the
        “warming”….hmmm….maybe the oceans weren’t hungry for warm in the
        10 years prior to that or something?

        What I find hilarious is you use a quote that is SUPPOSED to support an
        argument for man made global warming, yet you don’t READ what you’re
        quoting….let me give you an example: You see “Each of the last three
        decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding
        decade”…but you FAIL to SEE the most important 2 words in the
        sentence…”SINCE 1850″ ! In the next sentence, you FAIL to READ and
        understand the word “LIKELY”….you know, for something that’s
        supposed to be “SETTLED SCIENCE”…the word “likely” seems
        oddly out of place – wouldn’t you agree? What does the word LIKELY mean? It
        means that THEY DON’T KNOW. As for the first sentence, “Since 1850″
        is very telling because: does that mean that the warming stopped and then
        started again? Does that mean that we are simply experiencing a NATURAL cycle
        that our science hasn’t been around long enough to observe and understand? Like
        most AGW alarmists – your heart is in the right place, but you are being MISLED
        by interests that want your MONEY. You are a bad human who is causing the
        destruction of the planet, and you must PAY to correct it. The truth is that
        the world’s economies are collapsing – even Fed Chairperson Yellen said just yesterday
        that the US deficit will continue to grow and be unsustainable in 10 years.
        They need a new way to tax you and I ….

        Before I close, I URGE YOU to
        THINK FOR YOURSELF – the Archaeologic record is CHOCK FULL of incidents of
        climate change, and some can be RAPID… its why there are abandoned Viking
        settlements in Greenland (due to the onset of the “Little Ice Age” -
        Archaeologists will tell you that this onset happened within the space of a
        decade), its the reason that there are Marine fossils in the desert southwest
        of the US…. did these things happen because of the Vikings overuse of fossil
        fuels to power their personal watercraft, or because the dinosaurs were driving
        too many SUV’s ? OR – just possibly – was this due to a NATURALLY occurring cycle
        which we haven’t been around long enough to observe? These
        “scientists” want you to believe that they can ABSOLUTELY tell you -
        based on less than 300 years of observable data (and in some cases less than
        200 years!) – what the climate is going to do …on a planet that is a BILLION
        years old ! Laughable…I think a much more “LIKELY” scenario is that
        a cabal of interests got together to take advantage of a Solar Cycle that would
        provide a 7-8 year period of higher temps…they bought a politician who they
        thought would be an American President to be their pitch man….one
        problem….he didn’t win, and then a war started (most likely by another cabal
        of interests – and MAYBE even to combat the other cabal’s interests). So they
        went to Hollywood and the environmentalists and made a movie to push their
        cause, and sent their pitch man ALL OVER THE WORLD in his private jet with an
        entourage of SUV’s to pitch their idea for a brand new CARBON TRADE
        market…problem is, the wars and opposition slowed their progress. They
        couldn’t get their agenda accomplished during the proper Solar Cycle…and
        temps started to drop (as they always do – all you have to do is go back and
        look at the pitch man’s graphs shown in the movie – they show a steady up and
        down temp curve until we come to the present when the pitchman’s graph just
        keeps going up). But the temps began to come down – or “paused” as
        the IPCC would have us believe….and then something really telling happened -
        the named changed from man made global warming to man made CLIMATE
        CHANGE….pure PR move to keep the movement alive as the warming stopped.
        Substantially ALL of the “predictions” made by the Global Warming
        crowd have never come to fruition – in fact, in MOST cases, the exact OPPOSITE
        has occurred. I live on the beach in Florida – our seas aren’t rising, in fact,
        the beach in my back yard keeps getting WIDER (more beach !). In 2013, the US
        experienced historic LOWS in Hurricanes, Tornados, wildfires, AND TEMPERATURES.
        We just had one of the coldest winters on record – does this mean we’re going
        to have an ICE AGE? Probably not – but, just like your quotes above, they show
        nothing but what humans have OBSERVED over the last 200-300 years. THINK FOR
        YOURSELF – stop believing “scientists” who were already caught
        cooking the books to support this agenda…AND bloated, greedy politicians who
        have a bigger “carbon footprint’ than everyone you know – COMBINED ! I
        have faith in you – read the words that are important – and watch the Farmers
        Almanac, because they continue to be FAR MORE correct in their predictions than
        do any of these paid schills that stand to make money off this scam !

          • IndigoRed

            It’s a mistake to think that “scientist” means the person actually knows anything about climate beyond the daily weather report. It’s also a mistake to think that all those with PhD’s and signed the report are science scholars. Some have been found to be Arts PhDs. and engineers. Just because someone can design a bridge doesn’t mean they know a damned thing about planetary climate. And some of the names among the 31,000 scientists worldwide attest they never saw the reports and never signed the petition or UN report.

          scientists, as a rule, generally agree on nothing. it is the job of scientists to be skeptical. except today scientists have their livelihoods threatened, and in some places even their freedom, unless they get onboard this political theory. it reminds me of Galileo’s time. and if you recall, even Galileo recanted his theory when his freedom was threatened. scientists aren’t leading this cause–politicians are.

    Study funded by the Koch Brothers finds climate change is speeding up.
    The BEST team vindicated climate science — see Koch-Funded Berkeley Temperature Study Does “Confirm the Reality of Global Warming.” Equally important, if you read the key paper, they found:
    we find that the global land mean temperature has increased by 0.911 ± 0.042 C since the 1950s…. our analysis suggests a degree of global land-surface warming during the anthropogenic era that is consistent with prior work (e.g. NOAA) but on the high end of the existing range of reconstruction.

You also might want to explain the last 17 years with no increase in mean temp. Or the studies on Cosmic Rays and cloud formation. Or….

    I graduated high school in 1972 and in my junior year, our science teacher proclaimed that the earth was on it’s last legs and that we had less than 30 years of life as we know it on the planet. He was, basically, regurgitating the message from environmentalists during the first Earth Day in 1970. We were stunned in part because we believed him (he was the “cool” teacher) and for me personally, and a number of my peers, this proclaimation sent us in a spiral of depression, anxiety, and doubt. Why go to college and plan a future when we our offspring clearly wouldn’t survive what was sure to be a dystopian existence. (Hey – teenagers thrive on drama).

    I see the same thing among my son’s high school friends who accept this garbage and that’s what disturbs me the most. We’re creating hopelessness and anxiety in this generation.

Whole books have been written about it. The Germans brought the art to a whole new level. Now, with the Internet we’re seeing it brought to an even higher level (well, higher volume, lower content as the masses are not nearly as well educated as they used to be).

  • http://www.DNotice.org/ Dean Jackson

    The lead investigator behind NASA’s SABER study, James Russell from Hampton University, informs us that “Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats”,* meaning when CO₂ gases rise into the upper atmosphere, which they must because they are robust absorption vehicles for heat (heat rises/cold falls), that’s when these formerly lower atmospheric gasses unload their heat packages, otherwise CO₂ and nitric oxide can’t be “natural thermostats”.

    You see, Ladies and Gentlemen, as we were taught in grade school (and as Meteorologists are instructed in Meteorology 101, proving the Meteorology profession was co-opted by Marxists), warm air rises and displaces the colder air atop. That colder air then moves back down towards the ground. As THE robust gasses for latching onto heat (Infrared Radiation/IR), [man-made] CO₂ and nitric oxide are therefore responsible for COOLING the planet to a greater degree then it would be otherwise. In other words, if man-made CO₂ and nitric oxide are decreased, all other variables remaining constant (such as the energy output of the Sun), global temperatures will dramatically INCREASE.

    It is during the night, when one side of the Earth isn’t being bombarded by light, that heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the lower atmosphere are especially adapt at displacing/replacing the greatly less heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere, and unloads their heat cargoes into space. This cycle continues all night. Hence, the more CO₂ and nitric oxide any particular area of the Earth has, the greater the cooling effect will be for that area.

    As for Venus’ dense CO₂ atmosphere, the unexplained heat differential for that planet is explained by the robust volcanism present there.**

    Recall man-made global cooling?*** It quietly vanished from the headlines circa 1980, re-placed by man-made global warming. Man-made global cooling didn’t pan out, so Plan B went into action–man-made global warming.

    So what’s really going on , you ask?

    Quacks such as “climate scientist” Katharine Hayhoe**** aren’t really quacks, but are Marxists with an agenda that calls for advocating global calamity…to further sabotage the economies of the West, as tasked by Moscow & allies. That’s why the central banks of the West (and Japan) are all following low interest rates sabotage policies that blocks net (new) capital formation. Without higher, market-based, interest rates that lure-in capital for new long-term productive business ventures, there can be no economic recovery in the West, precisely what Moscow & allies want.

    Take a look at the main paper of the Russian Ministry of Defense…see if you notice something odd…

    http://www.redstar.ru/

    “Krasnaya Zvezda” is Russian for “Red Star”, the official newspaper of Soviet and later Russian Ministry of Defense. The paper’s official designation is, “Central Organ of the Russian Ministry of Defense.” Note the four Soviet emblems next to the still existing Soviet era caption titled “Red Star”(!), one of the Soviet emblems including the image of Lenin, the man who removed the independent Russian nation from the map, supplanting it within the new nation called the USSR, a murderous one-party government that spread violence throughout the world in order to “liberate” the world, and bring into existence a one-world Soviet dictatorship! If the “collapse” of the USSR was real, then the “Red Star” caption, four Soviet emblems and Lenin’s image could not form the masthead of the Russian Ministry of Defense’s newspaper, due to their association with the Soviet Union and its ideals of world revolution. Imagine the official paper of the German Ministry of Defense is named “Das Third Reich”, where next to the caption are four Nazi emblems, one of the emblems sporting a profile of Adolph Hitler’s head!

    Then for Russian Naval vessels, take a look at the following photo from 2013, and note what’s still appended to the bows (enlarge picture)…

    http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/08/9225/

    See the Soviet era Red Star still attached to the port bow, near the anchor!

    Those pictures were taken in 2009, 2004 and 2013, respectively, not before the “collapse” of the USSR. As you can see, the distinct Soviet era nationality emblem of the Communist Party…the distinct-designed Red Star… is still present. That political symbol of the Soviet government would have been immediately removed in early 1992 if the “collapse” of the USSR were genuine. As the legal emblem of the USSR and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the distinctive Red Star nationality emblem can only be present if Communists are still in power in Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the USSR.

    Now, the distinct Soviet roundel (a roundel is the nationality emblem on military aircraft that identifies the nation the aircraft belongs to) is a five-pointed Red Star with a white border area and an outer thin red line, as the link immediately below shows…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:URSS-Russian_aviation_red_star.svg

    Now, take a look at the Soviet nationality roundel on a Russian military aircraft in 2009:

    http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia—Air/Sukhoi-Su-25SM/1606418/L/

    Take a look at what’s still on Aeroflot aircraft…

    http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.airplane-pictures.net/images/uploaded-images/2013-8/31/316500.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/316500/vp-bdn-aeroflot-airbus-a319/&h=853&w=1200&sz=342&tbnid=LpEalOG0f8GrcM:&tbnh=101&tbnw=142&zoom=1&usg=__G489DWC7zsP5bnmGg5-Pi0QB8xs=&docid=xUpoGn9FHxnMDM&sa=X&ei=evRRUtGuJNGs4APLsoDICg&ved=0CC4Q9QEwAA

    Note the Communist emblem of the hammer & sickle stenciled on the Aeroflot aircraft’s fuselage! Imagine the Swastika still on Lufthansa commercial aircraft!

    The Soviet Air Force Base outside the town of Engels (Saratov Oblast District, Russia) named Engels Air Force Base (the only Soviet Air Force Base named in honor of Engels; none were named after Marx nor Lenin), is STILL called Engels Air Force Base, and the adjacent town is still called Engels. Both town and air base were named after Marx’s colleague Friedrich Engels…

    Engels Air Force Base:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engels-2

    Also, notice the modified Soviet Red Star roundel, created in 2010, 19-years after the collapse of the USSR (people were talking about the inexplicable continued use of the Soviet roundel, so instead of creating a new roundel for the new Russian nation, which was supposed to have occurred in 1992, the Duma instead merely modified the Soviet roundel!). Here’s the Soviet roundel, for comparison…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:URSS-Russian_aviation_red_star.svg

    The only difference between the two roundels is the addition of the narrow blue trim bordering the red star. Imagine the German Luftwaffe using a modified Nazi Swastika on its aircraft!

    Engels city:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engels,_Saratov_Oblast

    In fact, Engels city still has Lenin Square…

    http://www.acase.ru/online/en-hotel-volga-id1101002.jsp

    …and Saratov city (right across the Volga River from Engels city) still has its massive statue of Lenin…

    https://www.google.com/search?q=lenin+statue+in+saratov&es_sm=93&tbm=isch&imgil=LfJIIl3Tp8qeyM%253A%253Bhttps%253A%252F%252Fencrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com%252Fimages%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcR5zkOLDChdSE6h4wmAyBsLGcU1DS5JHiiE63xsK1LU5L4bL2lU%253B600%253B458%253BQ6CnSVdaWPTqRM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Frussiatrek.org%25252Fsaratov-city&source=iu&usg=__hEHeAQYzDCvpPfUTbdJsEWUxBmE%3D&sa=X&ei=R6NkU8vyA-alsASArIGwCQ&ved=0CC4Q9QEwAA

    In fact, approximate 97% of Lenin’s statues that existed before the fake collapse of the USSR are to this day still standing….

    http://www.saint-petersburg.com/monuments/ploshchad-lenina/

    The only statues taken down were in those locations where foreign tourists would travel the most, and those statues were lovingly disassembled and placed in museums or parks, waiting there for their planned resurrections–after the defeat of the West…

    The fraudulent “collapse” of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Moscow & Allies, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

    Notice that not one political party in the West demanded verification of the collapse of the USSR, and the media failed to alert your attention to this fact, including the “alternative” media. When determining whether the “former” USSR is complying with arms control treaties, what does the United States do to confirm compliance? Right, the United States sends into the “former” USSR investigative teams to VERIFY compliance, yet when it’s the fate of the West that’s at stake should the collapse of the USSR be a ruse, what does the United States do to confirm the collapse? Nothing!

    It gets worse–the West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested and detained the 6-million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union’s Ministry of the Interior control the populations of the larger cities during the period of “Perestroika” (1986-1991)!

    I have researched most of the names pushing we are burning up .
    99.9 % are all Liberal .
    Few know Karl Marx a dead beat who did not support wife and kids was a Veggie and
    Green-e dating back to 1872 .He railed against over population when there was less than 1 Billion on earth .Not like now with 7.6 Billion on earth .
    As well as
    Long before Sky Scrappers , Planes , Cars ,Trucks,Buss’s
    Ocean liners Oil tankers and electricity .
    He saw it as part of total control mechanism of the Hoards .
    Lein was a Green-e as well dating back to 1917 .
    AD Health care while doing away with the Constitution and Bill of Rights … Marxism lives .
    Man kind becomes nothing more than potted plants .
    Over 90 % of greenies have money in the game or are receiving Federal grant money to push their false agenda .
    It this was taken to court a Judge would throw the wimpy case out of Court because of lack of solid proof and evidence as well as fine the lawyers .
    The so called Models have to assume while there is no concrete proof for their countless assumptions .
    It is all about …. What If and maybe’s ?
    Plus it is killing the middle class presently with its coming far higher cost for everything using energy .
    To quote Saul Alinsky 1937 : I love and support the poor while I hate the middle class .
    Obama worked 4 years for the Saul Alinsky Foundation pushing Alinsky’s marxist beliefs .

    A. Less than 44%

    B. Less than 24%

    C. Less than 14%

    D. Less than 0.04%

    The correct answer is D, less than 0.04%. The exact amount is .0389% or 389 / parts per million molecules.

    Some years go, at the very beginning of my courses in geology, we were introduced to “The Scientific Method”. Those in other science disciplines listened to similar lectures. Outside, the liberal arts majors were busy protesting this-and-that on a daily basis. Their ignorant, shrill, alarmist voices seem to carry the day with media and politicians.

    • http://batman-news.com Mizram

    The Global Warming Petition Project – a petition signed by over 31,000 scientists worldwide, over with 9000 phd’s.

    The Petition Text:

    “We urge the United States Government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto,
    Japan in December, 1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would
    harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind.

    There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”

    Furthermore, evidence of definitive man-made climate change is going on right over our heads most of the Fall and Winter months. High flying jets dispense nano-particulate aerosol desiccants into the skies nationwide. ‘Chemtrails’ as they are widely known are non-dissipating artificial clouds dispensed from high flying jets. The particulate spreads out into a cirrus ‘cloud’ haze which absorbs atmospheric moisture, lowers the humidity and diminishes the low pressure weather systems’ ability to generate precipitation / rain. This trend has been observed for several years. Based on the research we’ve done, the West coast ‘drought’ is manufactured, it is man made with the use of aerosol spraying of nano particulate chemical desiccants. The proof of this manipulation is the particular TIMING of the jets dispensing aerosols into the skies just a couple of days prior to a low pressure system arriving off the West coast and is KEY to understanding this weather manipulation on the West Coast.

        According to a number of revisionists, the Holocaust was grossly exaggerated. Some argue that there is no evidence that poison gases (zyklon B) were systematically employed in the camps. Some of these revisionists even argue that had Britain negotiated with Hitler’s Reich, Hitler would have relocated Europe’s Jews to Madagascar. So, even though you argue vigorously for the truth of the Holocaust with irrefutable evidence, there are scholars who repudiate the extent and cause of this genocide by arguing there is no irrefutable evidence.

I am sorry but you re one of the illiterate that got us into this mess. Go away. People like you are a dime a dozen.

    GLOBAL WARMING SCAM – being proven FALSE !!!!

    What a bunch of baloney..

    • Matt

      I think it is the deniers who are actually coming unglued. Even Evangelicals are on board now. They are hardly “Kenyan Communist Muslim Brotherhood Marxists for the Saul Alinsky School of destroying white men.”

      • trebor86

        No ‘they’ are not on board… ‘We’ still think it’s politically motivated/untrusted ‘science’

        • Matt

          Many have embraced it. They argue that God gave the earth to man and man is the steward of the planet and is responsible for its viability. Lunatics like Dobson, the Christian Taliban, live in the Bronze Age so they rejects it..Do some research.

      • jcd0101

        ohh so a bunch of unqualified priests now climb on board the SCAM EXPRESS
        and to you that makes it fine ?

        • Matt

          As opposed to 98% of the world’s climatologists who, by your lights, are unqualified. But you are qualified?

          • jcd0101

            well lets see
            90% of their computer models are all WRONG
            100% of all their claims are proven WRONG
            all of the billions of dollars these over educated morons demand (from the USA of course)
            just goes into their corrupt pockets

            Almost all of these so called EXPERTS have been wrong 90 – 100% of the time

            But according to your logic
            we should all listen to THEM ??
            are you NUTS??

            I have a better track record of predicting the weather than they do..

            more than 2 weeks out ???

            you cant.. the models dont work that far out
            but you seem to believe that these flipping over educated morons
            can predict the so called Global Warming scam 100 YEARS !!!!!

            PLEASE !!!

  • http://www.DNotice.org/ Dean Jackson

    The lead investigator behind NASA’s SABER study, James Russell from Hampton University, inadvertently informed us that “Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats”,* meaning when CO₂ gases rise into the upper atmosphere, which they must because they are robust absorption vehicles for heat (heat rises/cold falls), that’s when these formerly lower atmospheric gasses unload their heat packages, otherwise CO₂ and nitric oxide can’t be “natural thermostats”.

    “You know, that’s why all I can do is laugh when these global warming monkeys tell me that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. It is not, and I have live, precise experimental situations in over 30 sites around the world that prove that it is not. These guys create a model in their computers, based on arbitrary assumptions, and then ignore all the experimental evidence to the contrary. My experiments show that INCREASING ATMOSPHERIC CO2 IS CORRELLATED WITH A DECREASE IN ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURE in my agricultural environments.”**

    You see, Ladies and Gentlemen, as we were taught in grade school (and as Meteorologists are instructed in Meteorology 101, proving the Meteorology profession was co-opted by Marxists), warm air rises and displaces the colder air atop. That colder air then moves back down towards the ground. As THE robust gasses for latching onto heat (Infrared Radiation/IR), [man-made] CO₂ and nitric oxide are therefore responsible for COOLING the planet to a greater degree then it would be otherwise. In other words, if man-made CO₂ and nitric oxide are decreased, all other variables remaining constant (such as the energy output of the Sun), global temperatures will dramatically INCREASE.

    It is during the night, when one side of the Earth isn’t being bombarded by light, that heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the lower atmosphere are especially adapt at displacing/replacing the greatly less heat-laden CO₂ and nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere, and unloads their heat cargoes into space. This cycle continues all night. Hence, the more CO₂ and nitric oxide any particular area of the Earth has, the greater the cooling effect will be for that area.

    As for Venus’ dense CO₂ atmosphere, the unexplained heat differential for that planet is explained by the robust volcanism present there.***

    Recall man-made global cooling?**** It quietly vanished from the headlines circa 1980, re-placed by man-made global warming. Man-made global cooling didn’t pan out, so Plan B went into action–man-made global warming.

    So what’s really going on , you ask?

    Quacks such as “climate scientist” Katharine Hayhoe***** aren’t really quacks, but are Marxists with an agenda that calls for advocating global calamity…to further sabotage the economies of the West, as tasked by Moscow & allies. That’s why the central banks of the West (and Japan) are all following low interest rates sabotage policies that blocks net (new) capital formation. Without higher, market-based, interest rates that lure-in capital for new long-term productive business ventures, there can be no economic recovery in the West, precisely what Moscow & allies want.

    Take a look at the main paper of the Russian Ministry of Defense…see if you notice something odd…

    http://www.redstar.ru/

    “Krasnaya Zvezda” is Russian for “Red Star”, the official newspaper of Soviet and later Russian Ministry of Defense. The paper’s official designation is, “Central Organ of the Russian Ministry of Defense.” Note the four Soviet emblems next to the still existing Soviet era caption titled “Red Star”(!), one of the Soviet emblems including the image of Lenin, the man who removed the independent Russian nation from the map, supplanting it within the new nation called the USSR, a murderous one-party government that spread violence throughout the world in order to “liberate” the world, and bring into existence a one-world Soviet dictatorship! If the “collapse” of the USSR was real, then the “Red Star” caption, four Soviet emblems and Lenin’s image could not form the masthead of the Russian Ministry of Defense’s newspaper, due to their association with the Soviet Union and its ideals of world revolution. Imagine the official paper of the German Ministry of Defense is named “Das Third Reich”, where next to the caption are four Nazi emblems, one of the emblems sporting a profile of Adolph Hitler’s head!

    Then for Russian Naval vessels, take a look at the following photo from 2013, and note what’s still appended to the bows (enlarge picture)…

    http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/08/9225/

    See the Soviet era Red Star still attached to the port bow, near the anchor!

    Those pictures were taken in 2009, 2004 and 2013, respectively, not before the “collapse” of the USSR. As you can see, the distinct Soviet era nationality emblem of the Communist Party…the distinct-designed Red Star… is still present. That political symbol of the Soviet government would have been immediately removed in early 1992 if the “collapse” of the USSR were genuine. As the legal emblem of the USSR and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the distinctive Red Star nationality emblem can only be present if Communists are still in power in Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the USSR.

    Now, the distinct Soviet roundel (a roundel is the nationality emblem on military aircraft that identifies the nation the aircraft belongs to) is a five-pointed Red Star with a white border area and an outer thin red line, as the link immediately below shows…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:URSS-Russian_aviation_red_star.svg

    Now, take a look at the Soviet nationality roundel on a Russian military aircraft in 2009:

    http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia—Air/Sukhoi-Su-25SM/1606418/L/

    Take a look at what’s still on Aeroflot aircraft…

    http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.airplane-pictures.net/images/uploaded-images/2013-8/31/316500.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/316500/vp-bdn-aeroflot-airbus-a319/&h=853&w=1200&sz=342&tbnid=LpEalOG0f8GrcM:&tbnh=101&tbnw=142&zoom=1&usg=__G489DWC7zsP5bnmGg5-Pi0QB8xs=&docid=xUpoGn9FHxnMDM&sa=X&ei=evRRUtGuJNGs4APLsoDICg&ved=0CC4Q9QEwAA

    Note the Communist emblem of the hammer & sickle stenciled on the Aeroflot aircraft’s fuselage! Imagine the Swastika still on Lufthansa commercial aircraft!

    The Soviet Air Force Base outside the town of Engels (Saratov Oblast District, Russia) named Engels Air Force Base (the only Soviet Air Force Base named in honor of Engels; none were named after Marx nor Lenin), is STILL called Engels Air Force Base, and the adjacent town is still called Engels. Both town and air base were named after Marx’s colleague Friedrich Engels…

    Engels Air Force Base:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engels-2

    Also, notice the modified Soviet Red Star roundel, created in 2010, 19-years after the collapse of the USSR (people were talking about the inexplicable continued use of the Soviet roundel, so instead of creating a new roundel for the new Russian nation, which was supposed to have occurred in 1992, the Duma instead merely modified the Soviet roundel!). Here’s the Soviet roundel, for comparison…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:URSS-Russian_aviation_red_star.svg

    The only difference between the two roundels is the addition of the narrow blue trim bordering the red star. Imagine the German Luftwaffe using a modified Nazi Swastika on its aircraft!

    Engels city:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engels,_Saratov_Oblast

    In fact, Engels city still has Lenin Square…

    http://www.acase.ru/online/en-hotel-volga-id1101002.jsp

    …and Saratov city (right across the Volga River from Engels city) still has its massive statue of Lenin…

    https://www.google.com/search?q=lenin+statue+in+saratov&es_sm=93&tbm=isch&imgil=LfJIIl3Tp8qeyM%253A%253Bhttps%253A%252F%252Fencrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com%252Fimages%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcR5zkOLDChdSE6h4wmAyBsLGcU1DS5JHiiE63xsK1LU5L4bL2lU%253B600%253B458%253BQ6CnSVdaWPTqRM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Frussiatrek.org%25252Fsaratov-city&source=iu&usg=__hEHeAQYzDCvpPfUTbdJsEWUxBmE%3D&sa=X&ei=R6NkU8vyA-alsASArIGwCQ&ved=0CC4Q9QEwAA

    In fact, approximate 97% of Lenin’s statues that existed before the fake collapse of the USSR are to this day still standing….

    http://www.saint-petersburg.com/monuments/ploshchad-lenina/

    The only statues taken down were in those locations where foreign tourists would travel the most, and those statues were lovingly disassembled and placed in museums or parks, waiting there for their planned resurrections–after the defeat of the West…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallen_Monument_Park

    The fraudulent “collapse” of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Moscow & Allies, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

    Notice that not one political party in the West demanded verification of the collapse of the USSR, and the media failed to alert your attention to this fact, including the “alternative” media. When determining whether the “former” USSR is complying with arms control treaties, what does the United States do to confirm compliance? Right, the United States sends into the “former” USSR investigative teams to VERIFY compliance, yet when it’s the fate of the West that’s at stake should the collapse of the USSR be a ruse, what does the United States do to confirm the collapse? Nothing!

    It gets worse–the West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested and detained the 6-million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union’s Ministry of the Interior control the populations of the larger cities during the period of “Perestroika” (1986-1991)!

    1. We live in a society that promotes innumeracy and scientific illiteracy.
    2. Weather has been a formally quantified, recorded science for only about 130 years. this is short time in the scope of the Earth. We rely on reasonable and proper extrapolations and interpretations for long-term theories but we really don’t know much about multi-century cycles.
    3. There is more than a little arrogance in any proposal to affect global weather trends in any lasting or meaningful way; this will not preclude some people from profiting from the attempt. The profiteers
    will tell you to pay no attention to the man behind the curtain and do not compare anything labeled “green” with the effect of putting one ice cube in a swimming pool.
    4. Natural laws have no pity; you can’t successfully negotiate with a hurricane.
    5. “100 year storms” is a man-made category – if those type of storms occur more frequently it’s because the theory that established the category is wrong, not the weather.

    The mainstream media are willing dupes of the climate alarmists. The problem has morphed from “global cooling” to “global warming” to “climate change” and now to “climate disruption.” These politically andfinancially motivated “scientists” and their leftist political masters have had to recognize that the earth is not in danger of getting disastrously cold, disastrously hot, or that global climate is rapidly changing in any direction. So now the “theory” is that the global average temperature stays about the same but we get floods and landslides and blizards and tornadoes and hurricanes and lions and tigers and bears.

    This is nothing but a leftist political stunt in a midterm election year in which they fear getting badly whipped so they’re playing to the cheap seats. A pox on all their houses.

    Probably one of the more amusing comments I heard from the climate fascists was from Al Gore himself who once called the atmosphere “a Thin layer covering the earth”. Thin layer? The atmosphere is 80 miles high, what “thin” layer is this idiot talking about? Imagine if the atmosphere was the ocean and we were living 80 miles beneath it’s surface, how much of a “thin layer” would he think that is?. How far is 80 miles? Imagine driving 80 mph on the freeway, it would take you one whole hour to drive 80 miles. Just sit down and do a thought experiment: Look at the clock and imagine you are speeding along at 80 mph going higher and higher into the sky, and do that for an hour. That’s how high that is. To suggest that humans could have any kind of impact on that amount of gas, 5 quadrillion metric tons of a gas 80 miles high, is as insane as it gets. This is exactly why millions of years of volcanoes, meteor strikes, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, even over 2000 nukes detonated (that’s right, 2000) have done absolute squat to change the atmosphere past the “point of no return” as the climate fascists so often like to say. But me driving my gas powered moped is going to do it, isn’t that true Mr. Gore.

Truth is, this World/Universe isn’t even close to being figured out yet! Should we do our best to control pollution and garbage, sure, but the more these “scientists” and the MSM try and silence their critics simply for questioning the data, the more it makes sense to question their data. Science should never be set in stone, and “Global Warming” supporters should know that since they themselves have had to change it to “Climate Change” since their own predictions have turned out to be… DEAD WRONG!

Only computers, which only give forecasts twenty years from now. And it is no co-incidence that Earth Day, along with the whole environmental movement, is another drive for more power by the Socialists, which include Obama and most of the Democrats. As Rush said, Obamacare stinks, our foreign policy stinks, our national unemployment stinks, so why not whip up some climate change ballyhoo?

    The Indians Started Global Warming

    I live on an estuary on the Gulf Coast of Florida. About 15,000 years ago the polar caps basically covered much of the US down to about Tennessee. The reason my location means something is that back then the Gulf Coast shoreline was about 150 miles west of me. If I dig 1.5 feet I hit water. So, the coastline is close now.

    During this great ice age, the paleo-man (aka Indians) crossed the frozen Bering’s Straights from Siberia. They walked across the ice, which was typical of the time, into what is now Alaska and after many many generations lived in all areas of both North and South America.

    Now, one of the reasons the Indians flourished over the next several thousand years was because of the abundance of large (over 100 pounds) clueless mammals across both continents. Today North America has only 10% of the large mammals that roamed the lands before the Indians showed up. But that’s another story.

    As the Indians flourished and spread throughout the land, they made fires to cook the meat they took and to form weapons, tools, etc. All those millions of fires over all those thousands of years created anthropologic global warming. There’s no other explanation for it. This caused the glaciers (now polar caps) to melt so badly that the ocean rose so that the Gulf Coast shoreline receded 150 miles over the centuries that followed. In other words, the beach disappeared by 150 miles.

    So, that is proof that man caused global warming. Because of the Indians immense carbon footprints, today we have far less land than we did before they melted the ice caps with their camp fires. But, once and for all we should all now accept the fact that man causes global warming. Thank the Old One we no longer burn camp fires. Anyone burning a fire is risking melting what little polar ice we have remaining. So, that’s proof of man-made global warming. There’s no other explanation.

    We just learned that Earth’s temperature (oh, that’s another thing. We are still cooling from formation and we have a terrific molten iron core that is really hot and a bunch of rock under terrific pressure generating tremendous heat – and we all know where heat goes – up through Earth’s core and mantle to heat up things like mine shafts) has stabilized over the past decade or two. Well, as an olive branch from all to all, let’s just say that all the global warming zealots put enough pressure on enough individuals all around Earth that we finally put a stop to anthropologic global warming. So, it’s over. Thank The Great One that global warming is finally over.

    Great. Now can I go back to my bbq and mow my lawn???

    The global warming scientists can not get their model to replicate the past, and when it’s predictions don’t match what happens, they “tweak” the data to match, run it again and say things are even worse. Michael Creighton foreshadowed to day in his book, “State of Fear.” Don’t you hate it when fiction writers get the future right?

    • FreedomFan

    • TIM HARRIS

      Michael Creighton actually started out to write a book about Global Warming but during his research he found out that there was no proof of it, so he changed the theme of the book. Since then he hasn’t had any of his books turned into movies.

    • Nick697

      It’s a hypothesis, not a theory. In science, a theory is an explanation for natural phenomena supported by facts and empirical data. A hypothesis is also an explanation, but not so supported – in other words, a hypothesis is a guess. Its only basis is a series of computer “models” which are no more valid than the people writing the code – and so many times independent examines have found these to be either faked (see Climategate and Hockey Stick Graph) or so composed that any data fed in – even “noise” – will always produce the predetermined result. In this, it resembles a religion, its priests are software writers and its altars are computers. Despite the evidence before their eyes, its adherents stick to it as fervently as the Jim Jones group did. Challenge them and you’re called a denier, the modern version of a heretic. Ask them to supply facts, and they stick their fingers in their ears and chant LALALALALALALALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!

      • merkinmuffy

        Have the warmers ever proposed a climate pattern that can disprove global warming, Nick? Have they ever submitted a report to a respected scientific journal that can be tested and peer reviewed? I’m not aware of anything!

        • Nick697

          I don’t understand the question. Why would people committed to proving global warming submit papers arguing the opposite?

          • merkinmuffy

            Every scientific theory must have a way to disprove it, even if it’s hypothetical. For example, Newton’s laws of gravity could be disproved if apples floated in the air instead of falling from trees. Warmers will admit to no event that would prove their theory wrong, even though the laws of science say there must be something that could potentially disprove it, no matter how unlikely.

          • Nick697

            The problem with that rationale is that anthropogenic global warming/cooling/changing is a hypothesis, not a theory. Both are explanations for natural phenomena, but a theory is the product of empirical evidence, and is supported by fact. A hypothesis is not; it is, in fact, a guess.
            Now there is anything inherently wrong with a hypothesis (in fact, many theories began as hypotheses and then evidence was found to make them empirically-supported theories.) A good example is the atomic theory, first propounded as a hypothesis in the late 18th century, at a time when many scientists (called “natural philosophers” then) believed in alchemy. The word atom actually comes from two Greek parts – “a,” meaning not, and “tome,” meaning to cut. In other words, something that cannot be cut because it is the smallest particle that exists. It was only in the early 20th century that sub-atomic particles could be identified.
            .
            The problem comes when a hypothesis is repeatedly disproven by empirical evidence, but its adherents – for financial, political, stubborn, etc. reasons – will not admit it. In this, it resembles a religion. Today’s manmade global climate change priests are like the Inquisition of the middle ages. Back then, if you challenged their “revealed truth” that the sun circle the Earth, you faced torture and burning at the stake. Today there are probably a few AGW believers who would like to do the same to the deniers.

To this point, no one has successfully proven ANY man caused climate change by any valid scientific method.

To answer your question, you can do some of your own research as it is readily available with a simple Google search. Here is the first thing that popped up on my last search. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/feb/01/leaked-emails-climate-jones-chinese

            The AGW scientists discussed how they ignored data that did not support their conclusions and also how they placed temperature gathering equipment in urban “heat zones” which is a big no-no as it artificially raises temperatures that are NOT reflective of the actual climate.

            Now, why don’t you explain the famous “hockey stick” chart and how the predictions of all of those climate models have not been anywhere close to accurate? You know, the models that all of the hysteria is based upon. If the science is so “settled”, as your messiah Obama says it is, why all of the deviation from the models by the climate?

That is extraordinarily dangerous to think you are the final say. When did the science of weather come to a definitive conclusion? It only does in the closed mind of a progressive.

  • 303skibum

    Right, and the fact that we continue to break records for heat year after year mean nothing. 97% of climate scientists agree that we’re heating up the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels.

    • Strong Vader

      The truth is the truth or the truth is a lie. Are the claims of the 97% science-based ‘truth’ or are they fabrications of an agenda-driven climate change industry? It seems obvious that there are far too many holes in the man-made global warming track record, with far too many qualified scientists concluding that the science is flat out wrong, for it to be the genuine truth. And if some of it is bogus then the whole house of cards is held together by nothing more than deceit.

    • Nick697

      Try to keep up. After a series of brutal, record-breaking winters in Europe, with record lows and snow falls, towns cut off for weeks etc., the global warming tinfoil hat brigade quietly changed the alarm to “climate change.” Then, (despite the occasional Sandy or Katrina), as evidence of the last few years being on average among the quietest in hurricanes and typhoons, no sea level rise, and arctic ice increasing by 60% (an area half the size of Europe) 2012-2013, a record cold winter in N. America, snow in Cairo for the first time in 120 years, etc., the new buzz words are “climate disruption.” Nobody explains what that exactly means, but it makes good cliché material and helps these people avoid so much derision.
      .
      Note, also, that when you bring up these things, the stock answer is “weather and climate are not the same.” Actually, climate is a summation of world weather, but in any case note that when there is the occasional drought, or California’s drenching rain, or a tornado or two, or any extreme phenomena as have been occurring since time began, the global warmers – sorry, disrupters or whatever – say “see, it’s evidence of what increasing CO2 is doing to our planet.” Gee; suddenly climate and weather are the same. Can you say “hy-poc-ri-sy”? I knew you could.
      .
      For more hypocrisy, one only has to say Algore. He warned 15 years ago that the sea level would have risen by a foot or more by 2012, engulfing low-lying shore areas – at the same time he was buying another mansion, this time on a California shore. He also sold his TV station to a bunch of Arab oil sheiks (oil?!) and flies around in a carbon-spewing private jet, while making tons of money in carbon trading. Incidentally, he uses over 20 times as much electricity as the average American. One other Algore prediction: By 2013, he warned, the arctic ice cap would have totally disappeared.
      .
      As to your question of burning fuel with impunity: There is no – zero – empirical evidence that increased atmospheric CO2 has any perceptible effect on global temperatures (or weather). In fact, the fastest increase was during the 30 years after 1940. During the WWII years all the mechanized countries went into a frenzy of armament, ship, factory etc. building, and in the post-war boom a similar huge output of steel for reconstruction and consumer durables like cars and refrigerators. 90%+ of this activity was driven by coal-fired power stations, spewing out record CO2, plus sulfur and nitrogen oxides, particulates etc. And global temperatures went down. Down to the extent that the predecessors of today’s climate “scientists” were predicting a New Ice Age, and suggesting such remedies as increasing particulate emission and even covering the two poles with soot to absorb more of the sun’s heat.

    Thanks to the war on drugs America has drugs of all kinds everywhere, as of course the government is importing them. Thanks to the war on terror we have more terror, government sponsored, than ever before, I mean they’ve been caught red-handed pants-down running guns to the terrorists in Syria, Libya, and to the mexican cartels. Then they failed to rescue our ambassador for fear of getting caught conspiring with the enemy. I suspect they’re running guns to the inner city ghettos like Chicago as well as part of their fairy-tale dream of disarming America by encouraging the inner city youth to kill one another and any unfortunate enough to be exposed to them.

    Then they told us we could keep our health plan and our doctor if we liked them, an outright on-going lie. To think that the President bald-faced lied right to our faces for months and months knowing full well the truth. They even expect us to be accomplice to murdering babies by paying for others to annihilate their children.

    And now after being crowned the single most dishonest pathological antisocial group of folks on the face of the earth, they naively expect we’ll
    believe even one word of the glo-bull warming agenda 21 nonsense BS. At this point we wouldn’t believe them if they said the sky was blue.

    It is best to assume EVERYTHING the government tells us is a lie. Hitler used fear to control the German people, leading them to ruin.

    • Nick697

      97% of scientists believed for centuries that stress and spicy foods/alcohol cause gastric ulcers. It was, in the words of Algore, Obozo etc. “Settled Science.”
      .
      Then, in 1980, a couple of “denier” scientists in Australia discovered that the culprit was actually a stomach-dwelling bacterium – Helicobacter pylori – that some people have and others don’t. To prove the theory, one of these guys was brave enough to culture H. pylori and swallow a beaker full of the organism; and soon after developed the disease (it is curable with antibiotics.).
      .
      Notice the difference. Unlike the global warming tinfoil hat brigade, who don’t use empirical evidence – actual observation – (unless by only recording from thermometers placed where they will give the predetermined data, and eliminating records from the ones which do not), the Australians used factual data. Manmade global warming is not a theory, it is a hypothesis (a fancy name for a guess). And every year, empirical evidence emerges that proves the hypothesis to be bunk. But, like a religion, its adherents refuse to hear anything against their beloved belief.

  • Gene

    Did anyone actually bother figuring out what the graph means? And why the mean, year after year, is not zero as stated, but just above +0.2 as an average, year after year?

    • Nick697

      I.e. one degree by the end of the century, if the trend continues. But the Earth doesn’t cooperate. Many respected climate scientists are now confident that we’re in for global cooling. The latest symposium of the International Astronomical Union agrees.
      .
      In any event, warm or cool, the only relevant point is whether man is having any effect on this natural cycle or not. Those without a financial, political or other bias say no, and the cycle almost certainly has more to do with sunspot activity. Solar physicists give an example: 1630 to 1700 sunspot activity was at the lowest level in 11,000 years, giving birth to the Maunder Minimum, when the globe endured three quarter of a century of bitter cold such as we have not experienced since (imagine 75 years of last winter’s temperatures.)

      • Gene

        Nick, you misunderstood the data again – what it shows is *yearly* trend, so 0.2 of anomalous change per year, over 17 year time period, so this is much more than 1 degree in a century. Anomaly is being defined as outside of expected outcomes, meaning outside of expected heating/cooling that may already be happening naturally, with sunspots/cycles activity included. The graph actually refutes your statement, along with the article itself.
        Scientists already know about global heating/cooling over centuries and this is not under dispute that Earth cools and heats over centuries due to sun activity/etc. What they are demonstrating in this graph is the *ANOMALY* in this expected heating cooling cycle. Go to the website that this data is being pulled from and research it for yourself.

        • Nick697

          No, I don’t misunderstand the data; it is you who don’t understand statistics. The graph doesn’t show a compounding. Look at it again, for Pete’s sake. During the entire period from the beginning of 1997 to this year, the temperature delta has been 0.2 degrees (not 0.2 degrees per year.) If this were to continue, it would mean one whole degree rise by the end of the century. And even this is meaningless. A large body of opinion is forecasting a global cooling in the near future.

    Funny how the liberals go on and on about climate change despite the bad science behind many of the studies. They are even suggesting arresting dissenters. Really? Arent they the ones who are supposed to be proponents for tolerance?
    Why don’t they use some of that energy against REAL problems like uh lets see….. Fukushima perhaps! Please people we have the science already about cancer links and radiation. There is a real problem in Japan and it will effect more than just Japan. Yet many of the scientists are kept away from studying the problems that this ongoing disaster is causing for the Ocean and humans.
    Put that money and wasted energy to better use. We have a problem that needs attention now. Oh I forgot its not about spending money on solutions its about collecting carbon Tax

    A friend posted this info-graphic on his facebook page today. Apparently, a weatherman from the weather channel thinks is proves climate change is a lie/conspiracy.
    my reply below:
    Interesting! According to this figure the average annual temperature is 0.2C brrrr….
    Of course, that’s what happens when you use poorly weighted averages…
    And, by the way, the current climate change models have shown it gets warmer in the summer, and colder in the winter… on average… lets see… if you use average annual data… warmer in summer, colder in winter… OH! MY! That would produce a net zero change… ZOmg! you just proved the current climate change models… unintentionally… but brilliant nonetheless.

    Look. Did you actually think the weatherman was a scientist? I never give welders advice because i know nothing about welding… why then do so many non-environmental scientists think they know the field better than we do… ?

    Nice graphic though, a perfect example of the bad science promoted by the Anti-climate change propaganda machine… and another example of general scientific illiteracy of the general populous.

    Don’t let your dislike for a party or a president cloud your reasoning skills.
    or… in other words, don’t be a dumbass.

    • Ian Deal

      95% of future climate estimates over the past 20 years were above actual temperatures. From my PhD statistics coursework, we would say that is evidence of bias. Actual scientists would be hell bent on discovering the reason for this bias and correcting it instead of being puzzled by the “pause” in global warming. I don’t need to be a climatologist to understand that existing computer models are completely insufficient to base energy policy on, especially when the recommendations are for trillions in spending, a lowered standard of living for billions, and 0 guarantee that there would be any real impact on future climate.

      • Brett Marshall

        i smell wet behind the ears. if you had any experience in any science, you would know two things…. first that, there are people that know more than you do, and second you would have a better defense than to quote your statistics prof. I smell the arrogance of fresh degree. don’t worry kiddo… you’ll have some experience in a couple years.

        • Ian Deal

          How odd. Climate scientists violate one of the most fundamental aspect of the scientific process and your inference is that I’m relying on a quote from a stat professor. I taught statistics at GA Tech for five years. The scientific method rests on statistical inference. We view error as random (just as likely to be wrong in either direction) vs. biased (consistently wrong in one direction). The assumption is that random errors balance out, while biasing errors present a false view. Bias can come from numerous places such as sampling, observation, recording, etc. That 95% of estimates of future temperatures were above what was observed, is clear evidence of bias. The scientific method requires the identification of that bias so it can be corrected. Defense of being wrong or denial of objective evidence is unscientific.

          • Brett Marshall

            It should not surprise you that i call you out when you fail
            to state a case succinctly. You actually did not say anything worth addressing, other than “i had a class during my Ph.D… and I learned something there… its called ‘bias’ ”

            As an environmental scientist (not a climate scientist), i
            have used many statistical tools and between my MS and Ph.D. i have more than enough stats credits to have an additional MS in statistics. In fact, my greatest criticism of global science is similar to yours…there is only one globe; there is no replication to develop even the simplest of measures of dispersion about an average. Ideally we would have 20 earths and 20 independent civilizations. I think this is what you are getting at… climate scientists do not do things the way i can… or the way you would… whatever you do…
            however, you are missing something entirely. You have misidentified /mischaracterized the scientific method. The scientific method rests upon deductive reasoning–not upon statistical inference. Statistical inference is a tool to support deductive reasoning. The distinction is subtle, but important nonetheless… and you are nonetheless wrong. Your oversight is not only
            self-serving, but also relevant to your incorrect assessment the validity of climate models. What you will have forgotten (if you believe your assertion of the nature of the Scientific Method) is that if you can sample 100% a population you do not need statistical inference to support or drive your deductive reasoning. THANKS Satellite Technology!

            Additionally, there are statistical techniques to address uncertainty (that I can never use in my field) that are common when the
            absolute size of a population is known and you know the proportion of the absolute population of that was sampled. These techniques are used when you read a poll. when a poll reports a margin of Error of 5%, it is NOT because they had a population of 20 USA’s and got an average response and used the dispersion to estimate 95% CI’s… no… they used established statistical knowledge of uncertainty. it is a similar underpinning to Climate statistics.
            It is clear from your argument that you either do not understand this, or you forgot it. Again, either way this is self-serving on your part.

            In fact, the precautionary principle and the importance of
            type-2 statistical error in resource management decisions is painfully lacking in your assessment of the situation. I’m going to take a guess that your Ph.D was … probably pseudoscience… like political science, or policy… where you only need to have a superficial understanding of inference. Again it is only a guess…

            In the mid-1980′s when i got out of the Army and started
            college, we were learning about nuances of the climate models… and we were cautious about them as one should be before implementing policy that could be costly. By the late 1990′s all (ALL) the scientists who had been refuting the science behind human caused climate change had started publishing papers that
            affirmed the effects of humans on climate. Note that despite the propaganda, these scientists would have become more famous if they could have refuted the climate models. In the 2000′s The Bush administration started Censoring scientific societies and spreading the propaganda that there was credible doubt in the scientific community. They produced the first serious “theory” on global resistance to human-caused climate change came out… funded of
            course by… yeah you know… not that that matters… But by 2005, the so-called “Iris Effect” was completely refuted because they had extrapolated evaporation coefficients from the tropics and applied them globally. This was the last serious counter theory human-influenced climate. And its science was shaky. Seriously shaky… and it was promoted by petro-funded think tanks like the one that sponsors this site. Oh wait… what was that you said about denial?

          • Ian Deal

            I am having a difficult time taking you seriously. Either you are intentionally obscuring the conversation or you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I made a very simple, non-controversial statement. Climate models consistently overstate the rise in temperature. The models are biased. The appropriate statistical test for this is quite basic. I could extrapolate this error to the 17 year hiatus of actual warming, but I did not. The idea that satellites are providing the universe of temperatures on earth is also inaccurate. Indeed, one of the explanations for a lack of expected warming is that the warmth is trapped in the deep ocean, an area that we can’t measure with any accuracy. At no point have you addressed the actual argument.

          • Brett Marshall

            Its ok, son, i have a hard time taking you seriously also. the fact that i have to point out where my observations relate to yours is just sad. Equally sad to me is the fact that you have “taught five years of statistics” but don’t understand that with this kind of pattern suggests there is an additional covariate… rather than true bias.
            as far as your closing sentence… i say this to you. YOU followed up on my statement of how foolish this article was. Thus you never clearly presented an argument of any substance… to me, your attempt to obfuscate the problem is what is important and what i adressed. If you were as serious about this as you pretend, you would be working on your own model rather than armchair quarterbacking from your propaganda think tank. its clear you have an agenda… excuse me for not helping you get there Mr. pseudoscience. oh i am sorry, Dr. Pseudoscience.
            now, you’ll have to excuse me, i have some models to work on in the name of science…

          • Ian Deal

            For all that you have written, you never responded to my original simple point. What is biasing all of these models? Why are they all wrong in the same direction? I’m not saying I know the answer; I’m saying this is a fundamental issue on this topic. Is the bias coming from the underlying assumptions about CO2 forcing or some form of measurement error?

          • Brett Marshall

            ok you are just silly. i posted an original reply regarding the absurdity of this story using this weatherman’s graphic that supposedly refutes climate change (not addressing you). You go on a rant with made up statistics and irrelevant credentials, about every other climate model ever written… i dismiss your nonsenseical rant by teasing you… but you persist… so i persist… and now i realize, you actually think that, because i dismissed this weatherman’s terrible model… TERRIBLE… that somehow i owe you an explanation of all the climate models ever written… claiming that that is the original topic… If you were half as critical of a thinker as you pretend to be, you would be all up in this weatherman’s shiznit about his bad science… but… oh… that’s right… as bad as his science was… it supported your agenda… so you loved it… dum dum dum de dum dum dum… your think tank must be running dry… maybe you should apply at mcdonnalds at least you would be doing something to serve society… and isn’t that what its all about? maybe you could be happy… :P

    Congratulations all you GW deniers. You have shown that you are less intelligent than forests or single celled ocean dwelling organisms. A key measure of intelligence is how quickly you notice changes in your environment and and how well you respond to those changes. Forests are moving towards the poles, or up the sides of hills and mountains. They are moving up at a rate of about 10 feet per year.

    Those single celled critters that I mentioned. They are moving towards the poles at ten miles per year. They to this because higher and closer to the poles is where cooler is. So congratulations all you GW deniers. You are dumber than plants and single cell organisms.

    One more bit of evidence. Statistics underlies the evaluation of GW evidence. If you do not understand the math of statistics then you are as qualified to comment on GW as someone who does not speak English is qualified to critique Shakespeare. If you can not follow the proof of
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaussian_integral.

    then you lack the basic mathematical competence to comment on GW. But most of you are mathematically illiterate and can not come up with the answer to this in less than 30 seconds. “A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?”

    And I am sure that your responses will consist, not of logic or evidence, but of some version of name calling. That is what 9 year olds do or what people do when they lack both logic and information to support their positions

    How ironic… the IPCC and its army of global warming alarmists may have fooled people about dangerous man-made global warming. But they just could not fool Mother Nature.

    Those temperature model projections based on various CO2 model scenarios found in the IPCC reports… none of them even acknowledged a possible temperature pause. Yet that is what Mother Nature has done … produced a temperature pause.

    In effect, Mother Nature has well and truly rendered obsolete all those the IPCC reports thus demonstrating that the IPCC has engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct.

      Ok, add to that the incredible VOLUME of the atmosphere…. and the BILLIONS of TONS of these ‘toxins’ that would be required to even appear at a detectable level, anywhere. And guess what? You end up with a farce, a joke, and a sad commentary of your sanity and the sanity and grasp of reality of those who share your delusion.

      So again, show me PICTURES of at least 2 or 3 commercial or military jets being ‘filled’ with this stuff. Show me the machinery mounted on them. Show me tanks. Show me staff. Show me the paperwork and communications trails, emails, docs required to support and maintain a global conspiracy to kill and poison Earth’s population.

      What do you say? You can’t? Because there is a cover-up?

      Get real. And before you post this c. rap, I highly advise you be careful of not mixing the name of the Most High in with your psychobabble. THAT is not O.K.

    Even if climate change/global warming is a myth, isn’t it still a good idea to try and burn less fossil fuels?

    • jlglex99

      The fact that reducing fuel consumption is (or may be) a good idea does not justify the fraud.

    Dear John Coleman,
    You are right man is not the problem of Global Warming. The pollutants man puts into the atmosphere ( just look at the pollutants China puts into the atmosphere every day ) one volcano spews more pollutants in one eruption then man puts into the atmosphere in a few hundred years. There are fifty or sixty volcanic eruptions every year.
    Man wants to stop Coal, Oil, & Natural Gas production, and turn to Solar Power ???

  • elizabetta

    the moron who wrote this has obviously never read any of the thousands of studies published over the last two decades by tens of thousands of climate scientists who all agree that human activities are driving global warming. Most of the so called scientists who deny global warming are philosophy majors and religious scholars – none are climate scientists. Obviously they are not qualified to have an intelligent opinion on global warming. Of the tens of thousands of climate scientists who do the studies, 97% go on the record in agreement that global warming is caused by human activities. If you want to hear an intelligent discussion on climate change, read the actual studies in scientific journals instead of a non-scientists idiotic opinion of what the studies said.

        You are dangerously misinformed. The last 9 months have been the hottest on record since humans have been able to accurately measure temperature. Something like 9 of the last 10 years have been the warmest years on record, each being hotter than the last. These conspiracy and hoax websites where you’re getting your information are of the same calibre as the conspiracy websites saying that George Bush was behind 9/11 – full of lies that rational people should look into instead of merely repeating and making themselves look like dunces. People need to educate themselves and learn to tell the difference between real science and conspiracy websites.

      • elizabetta

        You are dangerously misinformed. The last ten years have been the warmest on record. If you look at climate charts for the last 100 years, rather than charts that start with an abnormally hot year, you will see that temperatures have climbed steadily.

      • elizabetta

        Jimmbo, temperatures have been the hottest over the last decade of any since people have had the ability to accurately record temperatures. These are facts. You should stop getting your information from hoax and conspiracy websites. All hoax and conspiracy websites used flawed reasoning and lies to convince people that mainstream knowledge is all wrong. Note the hoax and conspiracy websites devoted to all that “proof” that George Bush was behind 9/11 – do you believe that, and go around embarrassing yourself by posting their charts and evidence? What about the hoax and conspiracy websites devoted to debunking the Holocaust, the moon landing, the space station, etc….. If you believe this rubbish, you are either extremely gullible or maliciously blind. Go to credible sources for information on climate change and stop trawling conspiracy and hoax websites.

  • jimmbbo

    The scientific method DEMANDS that a theory and all supporting data be made available for skeptical review. If it withstands such a review over time, it is accepted. At any time, the theory may be investigated and either supported or found erroneous. Einstein’s theories are being poked almost a century after he proposed them.

    Fast forward to Saint Algore the Large of the Church of Manmade Global Warming… Ever since 2006 he and his sycophants have pontificated that the “science is settled”… Psst… Science is NEVER settled, and the data that has been collected since His Eminence proclaimed “The Settlling” clearly casts doubt upon the theory, yet the Warmist Gestapo continues to chant the catechism of MGW causing death and destruction, and the ONLY solution is to give gooberment money to fix it…

    Since science can NEVER be “settled”, by definition, MGW “science” is not science AT ALL…

  • dihard

    Coleman does not have a degree in any science, let alone meteorology. His degree is in journalism. He was a weatherman, but never a meteorologist. His opinions are as an amateur. I’d like to know more about these 30,000 “scientists”……. What are their professional organizations? Who funds their “organization?”

  • Clay

    Very refreshing. I have been a weather geek since age 9. I am even more of a weather geek than the typical weather geek. I look at weather data for hours sometimes. Maybe it calms me and gives me something to do? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I am getting sick and tired of this global warming rhetoric. What really disgusts me is that very intelligent people are falling for the global warming hoax. And why are they falling for it? Because they still believe in the peer review process. They are counting on that process to show them the evidence that proves global warming. But, they are making a mistake in their thinking. They have decided to discount the thousands of scientists that are daily debunking human caused global warming. It’s a common mistake that they make. It is a pattern of thinking that comes about through media and social manipulation. Conspiracy theory has become a dirty word in America, and sometimes conspiracy theorists are quite insane. The media and the government has learned how to use conspiracy theory as a key word in a brainwashing process. This word is used to tab people that don’t go along with the government as out of touch, weird, socially undesirable, ugly, outcast, stupid, and weird. The government casts people into the conspiracy theory category when they stand against the government. This is how they have seduced intelligent, high IQ people. These people are busy people and don’t have the time to research global warming, so they accept the conspiracy theory tab that the government puts on real climate scientists who are sounding the alarm bells and warning us that the government and the media is blatantly lying to us.
    This is very frustrating. In the last five years I have painstakingly studied weather data for the last 100 years. The average temps have not gone up, but rather they have remained relatively stable. While there are warm periods that last 7-12 years, there are also cold periods that last 7-12 years. In addition, the USA is like a teeter-totter. When the east coast is warm, the west is cold. This is a common weather pattern. So the media and government focuses their attention on the side of the USA that is warmest and ignores the cold side of the nation. They do this blatantly.
    Enough said. I am deeply ashamed at our government. They do not realize that they are taking us down a road of distrust that can never be fixed. I am also disgusted with the Weather Channel. What a terrible show it has become. What a shame. I used to watch it religiously, now I have learned to go to other weather forecasters because at least they have the good sense to keep politics out of the very unpolitical weather forecast.

  • dawndawnb

    It’s funny how climate alarmists will dismiss John Coleman because he’s “just a meteorologist” and not a climatologist, but they will accept the word of Al Gore, whose expertise is in lying to get elected, as the undeniable truth.

    meanwhile organizations (notice non are scientific) that deny climate change

    American Enterprise Institute

    The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) has routinely tried to undermine the credibility of climate science, despite at times affirming that the “weight of the evidence” justifies “prudent action” on climate change. [1]

    For years, AEI played a role in propagating misinformation about a manufactured controversy over emails stolen from climate scientists [2], with one AEI research fellow even claiming, “There was no consensus about the extent and causes of global warming.” [3] A resident scholar at AEI went so far as to state that the profession of climate scientist “threatens to overtake all” on the list of “most distrusted occupations.” [4]

    AEI received $3,615,000 from ExxonMobil from 1998-2012 [5], and more than $1 million in funding from Koch foundations from 2004-2011. [6]

    Americans for Prosperity

    Americans for Prosperity (AFP) frequently provides a platform for climate contrarian statements, such as “How much information refutes carbon dioxide-caused global warming? Let me count the ways.” [7]

    While claiming to be a grassroots organization, AFP has bolstered its list of “activists” by hosting “$1.84 Gas” events, where consumers who receive discounts on gasoline are asked to provide their name and email address on a “petition” form. [8] These events are billed as raising awareness about “failing energy policies” and high gasoline prices, but consumers are not told about AFP’s ties to oil interests, namely Koch Industries.

    AFP has its origins in a group founded in 1984 by fossil fuel billionaires Charles and David Koch [9], and the latter Koch still serves on AFP Foundation’s board of directors [10]. Richard Fink, executive vice president of Koch Industries, also serves as a director for both AFP and AFP Foundation. [11]

    Koch foundations donated $3,609,281 to AFP Foundation from 2007-2011. [12]

    American Legislative Exchange Council

    The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) maintains that “global climate change is inevitable” [13] and since the 1990s has pushed various forms of model legislation aimed at obstructing policies intended to reduce global warming emissions.

    ALEC purports to “support the use of sound science to guide policy,” but routinely provides a one-sided platform for climate contrarians. State legislators attending one ALEC meeting were offered a workshop touting a report by a fossil fuel-funded group that declared “like love, carbon dioxide’s many splendors are seemingly endless.” [14, 15] Another ALEC meeting featured a Fox News contributor who has claimed on the air that carbon dioxide “literally cannot cause global warming.” [16, 17]

    ALEC received more than $1.6 million from ExxonMobil from 1998-2012 [18], and more than $850,000 from Koch foundations from 1997-2011. [19]

  • climatescaper

    Climate change can take at least 2 major avenues….temperature, stalling weather patterns. These are both attributable to a quieter sun. I believe the deniers are missing an important aspect of the argument. There is a plausible physics and correlation theory regarding why there is a quieter sun since year 2010. See website landscheidt.info. Any book for the lay public since 2011 that does not mention some of the following in their glossary is not up to speed and I don’t buy it: Geoff Sharp, Theodor Landscheidt, Nicola Scafetta, Nir Shaviv, Ian Wilson, Henrik Svensmark, K.G. McCracken.
