Trump ignores Gore’s advice, instead picks skeptic to head EPA & dismantle climate agenda


By: - Climate DepotDecember 7, 2016 7:08 PM with 2041 comments

Climate Depot’s publisher Marc Morano statement on President Elect Donald Trump’s selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt pick for EPA chief: 

“President-Elect Trump’s appointment of Scott Pruitt is a breath of fresh air. No longer do we have to suffer under President Obama’s ridiculous EPA ‘climate’ regulations. It is also refreshing that a Republican President is not throwing the EPA over to the green activists and the media by appointing a weak administrator. Christine Todd Whitman he is not! See: Bravo! Trump appoints ‘a fierce critic of the EPA’ — to head EPA! & Cheers! Trump picks leading EPA critic to head agency & NYT: ‘Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Climate Change Denialist, to Lead EPA‘ & Wash Post: Trump names Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma AG suing EPA on climate change

Trump’s pick of Pruitt finally means that a Republican President is standing up the green establishment! Historically, EPA chiefs have been among the most pro regulatory members of past Republican presidents from Nixon through Ford, Reagan and both Bushes. Trump has broken the cycle!

Climate sanity has been restored to the U.S. EPA. No longer do we have to hear otherwise intelligent people in charge in DC blather on about how EPA regulations are necessary to control the Earth’s temperature or storminess. See: Huh?! Obama advisor John Podesta claims EPA CO2 regs (which don’t impact global CO2 levels) are needed to combat extreme weather: ‘The risk on the downside you’re seeing every day in the weather’

No longer do we have to endure GOP presidents avoiding battle over the green agenda by picking EPA chiefs that were timid at best. We know how bad GOP EPA picks have been in the past because many former GOP EPA chiefs endorsed President Obama’s EPA climate regulations. See: EPA chiefs who served under Republicans press for climate action

If climate skeptics were worried about Trump’s meeting with Former VP Al Gore earlier this week, the pick of Pruitt is reassuring. Basically Trump listened to what Gore had to say at their New York City meeting and then he exercised his good judgement and did the exact opposite. Also see Climate Depot’s new 44 page consensus busting ‘State of the Climate Report’ \


Kudos to Trump for standing up the well funding climate establishment by picking Pruitt.

The UN Paris climate change agreement and the EPA climate regulations claim to be able to essentially save the planet from ‘global warming’. But even if you accept the UN’s and Al Gore’s version of climate change claims, the UN Paris agreement or the EPA’s alleged climate regulations would not ‘save’ the planet.

University of Pennsylvania Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack has noted, “None of the strategies that have been offered by the U.S. government or by the EPA or by anybody else has the remotest chance of altering climate if in fact climate is controlled by carbon dioxide.”

In layman’s terms: All of the so-called ‘solutions’ to global warming are purely symbolic when it comes to climate. So, even if we actually faced a climate catastrophe and we had to rely on a UN climate agreement, we would all be doomed! (See Keynote Speech by Marc Morano on the case for climate skepticism)

Even the proponents admit these EPA regulations are purely symbolic.

EPA Chief Admits Obama Regs Have No Measurable Climate Impact: ‘One one-hundredth of a degree?’ EPA Chief McCarthy defends regs as ‘enormously beneficial’ – Symbolic impact

Former Obama Energy Chief slams EPA climate regs: ‘Falsely sold as impactful’ – ‘All U.S. annual emissions will be offset by 3 weeks of Chinese emissions’ Former Obama Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Charles McConnell: ‘The Clean Power Plan has been falsely sold as impactful environmental regulation when it is really an attempt by our primary federal environmental regulator to take over state and federal regulation of energy.’ – ‘What is also clear, scientifically and technically, is that EPA’s plan will not significantly impact global emissions.’ – ‘All of the U.S. annual emissions in 2025 will be offset by three weeks of Chinese emissions. Three weeks.’

And after all the green stimulus bills, subsidies and regulations, overall energy use has not really changed all that much in over 100 years.

Reality check: In 1908, fossil fuels accounted for 85% of U.S. energy consumption. In 2015, more or less the same

TRUMP PICKS PROMINENT CLIMATE SKEPTIC AS EPA CHIEF

Celebrate! Trump to pick ‘ardent opponent’ of Obama climate agenda to run EPA – In an interview with Reuters in September, Pruitt said he sees the Clean Power Plan as a form of federal “coercion and commandeering” of energy policy and that his state should have “sovereignty to make decisions for its own markets.”

Trump’s Pick for EPA Has a History of Fighting the Agency

Professor: EPA health claims ‘are groundless’ – ‘Carbon dioxide is not a factor in smog or lung issues’  – Prof. Ross McKitrick on Sun News on June 2, 2014 – McKitrick on Air Pollution: The models get ‘more deaths from air pollution than you were death from all causes’ – ‘Particulates and soot are at such low levels in the U.S. — levels well below what they were in the 1970s. The health claims at this point are groundless coming from this administration.
I noticed these numbers coming up for Ontario for how many deaths were caused by air pollution. What struck me — was knowing that air pollution levels were very low in Ontario — but they were extremely high in 1960s. So I took the same model and fed in the 1960s air pollution levels into it: How many deaths would you get? I did the calculations and you quickly get more deaths from air pollution than you were death from all causes.
In other words, the streets would have been littered with bodies from air pollution if it was actually that lethal. The problem with all of these models is they are not based on an actual examination of death certificates or looking at what people actually died of — these are just statistical models where people have a spreadsheet and they take in an air pollution level and it pops out a number of deaths. But there are no actual bodies there, it is all just extrapolation.’

        “Real Hope & Change”

        Hope is just about all Climate Deniers have. Reality is not on their side.

        Is it possible there are people so stupid they cannot see why a person who is paid by the fossil fuel industry is not a reliable source of information on the dangers of that industry’s product?

      For sure! This new appointment of Pruitt feels like such a major relief, from decades long imposed & unwarranted burden(s) upon American Businesses, and the American Worker. If I was employed by the EPA, I’d be getting my Resume in order…

        Your resume, indicating that
        1.) you drive an SUV
        2.) you heat your house with coal
        3.) you use an air conditioner all the time when it’s warm
        4.) you have a wood-burning fireplace

      Yes we just pull trough Spanish and Vatican inquisition not burned or cooked in boiling oil and here we go again.Those who have monopoly on printing money are behind this scam.Some four decades ago UN Lima declaration states that capitalism is not sustainable,earth could not support capitalism.So these liars invented in fifties by club of Rome climate scare which most gullible’s are buying.Since they know capitalism is out for them to stay on top is to sell you carbon credit.How good is that,making billions without doing nothing,apart from telling a lie.They use secret technology scalar wave to disturb climate create earth quakes tsunami floods hurricanes destroying food source bio warfare diseases viruses HAARP towers to manipulate your mind,and list goes on for ever.I better stop before they send drone my way.Do not believe in any independent media they are all in their hands.Kosher media moderator will delete my post as usual , truth is against community guidelines.

      The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and insome places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway

      Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change inclimate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

      Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

      Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

      Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

      Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

      Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

      * * * * * *
      I must apologize.

      I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported
      by the AP and published in The Washington Post – 93 years ago.

      This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence?

            This all used to be “anti-pollution and emissions,” acid rain, loss of ozone, until they took the lead out of gas and we pay more for it, took the fluorocarbons out of hairspray, air conditioners, etc., and again we paid more for that. Looking to expand the cash cow Al Gore concocted a ‘global warming’ scheme, —now called “climate change,” weather disturbance and a host of other names to fit the snowflake narrative. In the end it seeks to TAX all Citizens on anything that has a “Carbon Footprint.” Use of Wood, Metal, Fuel, Concrete, Dirt, and even FOOD will cost everyone allot more money under this SCAM! As we know the far left and Snowflakes have ZERO talent when it comes to protesting SCAMS! Trump knows all this and he really stuck it to Gore, not once, but twice and turned the knife 3 times,… Al Gore and his Snowflakes all have ZERO TALENT PERIOD.!.!

            In fairness they chose the perfect medium on what to call their nonsense, “Climate Change”. When Global Cooling was proven ridiculous then Global Warming proven more ridiculous, they chose the safest term available. Climate change can be applied to anything. For instance, the record snow and cold in Chicago and surronding areas this week is climate change. Because they are tired of these events exposing the ridiculousness of global warming.
            If they were smart, they would try to come to a happy medium and work with Republicans. I don’t buy climate change but I am behind cleaning up the air we breathe. I would like sensible agreements that make the air quality better for everyone and I think everyone can get behind that. But when you take it to extremes and predict in 2008 that water rising would completely engulf NYC in 2015, you look like a fool. Also if we are going to use oil anyway, then why not get as much of it from North America as possible and become energy independent of those savage and intolerant middle eastern nations.

            The calamity will likely not happen in your lifetime. I find it interesting that conservatives love to talk about “future debt” and our “future generations who should not have to pay for our expenditures,” but do not give a shit about protecting the environment for their grandchildren. The hypocrisy and stupidity is glaring. The rest of the world is laughing at stupid Americans, who do not educate themselves, who do not know history, do not know how government works, and blame all the wrong people.

            Job number one: Teach Americans that the Earth is over 6000 years old — since most Americans are Bible thumpers, and refuse to recognize facts.

            Then we can proceed. Until Americans actually accept facts as facts, we will get nowhere, and will have to suffer with the stupid claims of people on this page.

          • DCW left coast

            Here is what your fellow travellers on the insane left were telling us 50 odd years ago . . .

            These are the predictions made on the first earth day in 1970.

            Didn’t believe them then, don’t believe them now . . .

            1.”Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald

            2.”We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” — Washington University biologist Barry Commoner

            3.”Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” — New York Times editorial

            4.”Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

            5.”Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich

            6.”It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day

            7.”Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to
            include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine
            conditions…. By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” — North Texas State University professor Peter Gunter

            8.”In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half.” — Life magazine

            9.”At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” — Ecologist Kenneth Watt

            10.”Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” — Paul Ehrlich

            11.”By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate… that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn’t any.'” — Ecologist Kenneth Watt

            12.”[One] theory assumes that the earth’s cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun’s heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” — Newsweek magazine

            13.”The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” — Kenneth Watt

            Here’s a fact for you-the entire environmental “movement” was started with lies,outrageous claims that were lies and the original enviro whacko bible-Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring” was based on deeply flawed science.
            Dr Carson was full of shit-millions have contracted and died from tropical insect borne diseases since the book of lies led to the banning of DDT.
            The current “climate change” tripe is just Silent Spring on ‘roids.
            The climate has been changing since long before the first human figured out how to harness fire,and long before the first drop of oil was used by humans.
            CO2 is not,never was,and never will be a pollutant.
            The only source of “clean” and renewable energy that can even come close to meeting demand for power is hydro-electric-but…
            the enviro-whackos are still filing lawsuits and getting dams torn down,along with enriching their lawyers.
            The enviro-whackos have turned the Sacramento/San Joaquin river delta from one of the most fertile,productive agricultural areas in the U.S. into a desert all to “save” a 3″ fish-the delta smelt-that’s going to go extinct anyhow.
            They’re doing a similar thing to another part of Commifornia because of another 3″ fish-the santa Ana sucker-only this time it’s a ban on drawing residential drinking water -from an existing reservoir-that is going to leave around a million people without water for drinking,cooking,bathing,laundry or growing their own vegetables.
            The enviro-whackos pushed things way too far-with well over 90% of the claims being outright lies-or based on lies-or in the case of “climate change” by using flawed data input into the 127 or so computer models,leading to flawed “results” from every single computer model. Every. single.one.
            By the way-polar bears are not anywhere near extinct-a claim made in the 1990’s and repeated several times a year since then.
            Polar bear populations are stable or increasing in every area they are found.
            Those of us not brainwashed who are capable of critical thinking have had enough of the bullshit-enougfh of the lies,half truths and obfuscation from the climate change cultists and the enviro-nazis.
            By the way-do some actual research into the “99% consusus” claim,and the “settled science claim”-the facts show both to be pure,unadulterated male bovine excrement.

          • Lemmings Hotline

            no, this is about 20,000 dollar a minute lectures and third world money grabs and the Clinton Foundation. I wonder how much the earth heated up when Mrs Clinton had the Khadaffi Libyan govt overthrown and replaced with ISIS.?

          • Vood

            Absolutely, it’s always been about a money and power grab. In fact nearly everything done by politicians is a money/power grab. Any program that uses taxpayer money is a scam that benefits politicians in the end. Obama’s hand-out to the renewable energy companies to the tune of 150 BILLION dollars went -where? Many of those companies went out of business! -But not before donating to the DNC or paying for over inflated “speaker’s fees”.

          • Earn nest

            Notice how all they do is to dismantle the curbs the founders tried to put on central government to try to keep what was already known to be a natural consequence of power in check.

          • Scoobym3

            Like the electoral college? Trump won the popular vote in more states than The Criminal did. The whole point was so bigger states with yuge populations don’t over ride the rest of the country. Liberals always want to change the laws they don’t like.

          • Honest John

            Yep, only when they don’t serve their current purpose. The founders were very astute in formulating the Electoral College to prevent elections (well at least make it MUCH HARDER) from being stolen from a single ballot box. OK, the JFK election was stolen by the Daley Democrat Machine in Chicago – at least JFK was a decent POTUS in spite of this.

          • Scoobym3

            I saw a documentary on the mafia. It made an interesting case that the mafia actually was able to help JFK win the White House.

          • Mister Lackey

            Vood,
            I call it “crisis construction”;

            1. Create the perception that there’s a crisis (whether is real or fake is unimportant).

            2. Proffer pre-determined, convenient solutions to said “crisis”.

            3. Lobby your solutions into law.
            4. Profit and gain power by government force.
            5. Enable and empower your friends and the aligned, and repeat.
            As you aptly indicate, the basic architecture for these scams has been in place for many years, and it keeps the masses at bay as they are relentlessly swindled by many among the greedy and ambitious.

          • CB

            “I call it “crisis construction””

            The trillions and trillions of dollars wasted could have reforested a lot of areas around the world. The trillions and trillions of dollars wasted could have brought clean water and sanitation to billions around the world. The trillions and trillions wasted could have restored and reclaimed a lot of polluted rivers around the world. The trillions and trillions wasted could have brought social goods like education, health care, better living conditions, and advanced technologies to the poor all around the world.

            The things that those trillion and trillions could have done still need doing; however, they will not be done because politicians destroyed the credibility of science and the environmental movement. In every survey over the last ten years environmental issues have fallen further and further down the list of the global population’s concerns.

            The frauds and their political paymasters have no one to blame but themselves. They will not be the ones to pay the price, that will be the world’s poor, you know those folks the liars are always proclaiming that they need their compassion (again as only defined by the fascist left). This is the reality of leftist progressive compassion – empty, soulless, and bankrupt of any morals or ethics.

            Simply saying that human activity causes Gorebull Warming does NOT make it so. In FACT the AGW Hypothesis is UNPROVEN SCIENCE.
            If the “Science” existed . . . you would post it.

            The United Nation’s own Inter-governmental panel on climate change found back in 2013, the world’s global warming stopped in 1998.

            The idea that global warming paused, what 18 years ago now is frightening to people who make their living off of scaring the public about global warming.

            But now, even the UN has come out and said that warming stopped.

            What is fascinating about this new study is that it finds that over a time period when greenhouse gases were rising rapidly, “results support previous findings of a reduced rate of surface warming over the 2001-2014 period.”

            Lead author Jonathan Fyfe cites the 2001 to 2014 period.

            The United Nations Inter-governmental panel on climate change which cites 1998 to 2012 when it says in the UN IPCC technical briefing of 2013, page 37,

            Despite the robust multi-decadal warming, there exists substantial inter-annual to decadal variability in the rate of warming, with several periods exhibiting weaker trends (including the warming hiatus since 1998) (Figure TS.1). The rate of warming over the past 15 years (1998–2012; 0.05 [–0.05 to +0.15] °C per decade) is smaller than the trend since 1951 (1951–2012; 0.12[0.08 to 0.14] °C per decade).
            The best minds in the world, working for the organization pushing climate change and global warming the most – the United Nations – says that at best temperatures have risen between 0.08°C to 0.14°C per decade between 1951 and 2012. But between 1998 and 2012 they may have gone down by -0.05°C or gone up by 0.15°C.

            The United Nations doesn’t know if temperatures went up or down between 1998 and 2012, now some of the top scientists pushing global warming say that they think things have slowed down if not outright stopped.

            We know that there is no such a thing as self-heating greenhouse and yet new theories have been invented to argue something that cannot be argued.

            We know that there is nothing in common in IR spectra between CO2, methane and water and yet they have been classified together as ‘greenhouse gases’ because they absorb infrared radiation, together with millions of other molecules.

            We know that CO2 in the atmosphere could not be detected by a standard IR-spectrometer and yet that property of CO2 has been used to argue for the existence of a greenhouse effect.

            We know that all the knowledge about the physical world comes from experiments that can be validated and not from calculations that cannot be validated. And yet, everything about man-made global warming is about calculations and NOTHING about measurements.

            Forget everything you think you know about oil

            ‘Black Gold Stranglehold’ explodes common myths

            Published: 10/18/2005 at 1:00 AM

            If you believe that oil is a fossil fuel, be prepared to have your thoughts turned upside down.
            If you believe that the U.S. has no choice but to rely on foreign oil until we ultimately run out of the precious resource, prepare to be challenged by new views that “have the opportunity to help give birth to a new generation of oil politics and economics.”

            WND Books’ newest release, “Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil,” by Jerome R. Corsi and Craig R. Smith, explores and debunks some of the popular myths surrounding the international and domestic politics of oil production and consumption to provide Americans with beneficial information while being held in a virtual stranglehold at the gas-pumps.

            In “Black Gold Stranglehold,” Corsi and Smith expose the fraudulent science and irresponsible politics that have been sold to American people in order to enslave them. By debunking several myths, Corsi and Smith provide an outline for progress that would help to establish America as energy-independent.

            Be prepared to be challenged by:

            The myth of fossil fuels: Corsi and Smith argue that the deep abiotic theory of oil is a more reliable theory than the fossil fuel theory. It rejects the contention that oil was formed from the remains of plant and animal life that died millions of years ago. Instead, they believe in Thomas Gold’s argument that oil is abiotic: “a primordial material that the earth forms and exudes on a continual basis” and is “pushed upward toward the earth’s surface by the intense pressures of the earth’s core and the influence of the centrifugal force that the earth exerted upon the specific gravity of oil as a fluid substance.”

            The running-out-of-oil myth: The 1970s scientific study known as Hubbert’s Peak, predicting we would exhaust oil reserves by 2003, has been proven false. We are currently sitting on “more proven petroleum reserves than ever before despite the increasing rate at which we are consuming petroleum products. New and gigantic oil fields are being discovered at an increasing rate, in places the fossil fuel theory would never have been predicted as possible.

            “Overlooked by modern researchers is the work of Eunice Foote, who, three years prior to the start of Tyndall’s laboratory research, conducted similar experiments on absorption of radiant energy by atmospheric gases, such as CO₂ and water vapor. The presentation of her report at a major scientific convention in 1856 was accompanied by speculation that even modest increases in the concentration of CO₂ could result in significant atmospheric warming.”

            “Https://www.youtube.com/embed/BC1l4geSTP8”

            We know that no gas molecule of the open system, as our atmosphere is, can possibly control temperature.

            We know that there are two very different mechanisms that drive dynamics of CO2 exchange between air-waterand air-biomass and therefore there is no such thing as global levels of CO2. Levels of CO2 above the water mass, covering 70% of the Earth surface is controlled by solubility of CO2 in water which is solely driven by temperature; while levels of CO2 above the biomass that covers most of the land surfaces is solely driven and controlled by photosynthesis.

            Texas has been cooling since 1995, but that doesn’t suit NOAA’s global warming agenda. So they keep cooling the past further and further to create the appearance of a warming trend.

            The UN bans skeptical journalists from climate summit for holding views not particularly helpful.

            The Earth is heading towards another ice age as solar magnetic activity is set to drop by up to sixty per cent in the next fifteen years.

            Winters may be getting colder in the Northeast.

            The Weather Channel video uses young kids, scaring them about their lack of a future to promote global warming fears.

            Looking to the hypocrites who are perpetrating this scam we have our Secretary of State who never saw a Global Warming photo op he didn’t like. On one Trip to the Antarctic, Kerry produced as much CO2 as an average American does in one year.

            CO2 is a “trace gas” in air and is insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight per molecule as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat producing 99.8% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.2% of it. For this we should destroy our economy, starve the world, cause hunger, riots and wars?

            There is no “greenhouse effect” in an atmosphere. A greenhouse has a solid, clear cover trapping heat. The atmosphere does not trap heat as gas molecules cannot form surfaces to work as greenhouses that admit and reflect energy depending on sun angle. Gases do not form surfaces as their molecules are not in contact.

            The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD Micheal Mann erased for his “hockey stick” was several Fahrenheit degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was 500 years of world peace and abundance, longest ever.

            Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 rises followed temperature by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. Therefore temperature change is cause and CO2 change is effect. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

            Methane is called “a greenhouse gas 20 to 500 times more potent than CO2,” by Heidi Cullen and Jim Hansen, but it is not per the energy absorption chart at the American Meteorological Society. It has an absorption profile very similar to nitrogen which is classified “transparent” to IR, heat waves and is only present to 18 ppm. “Vegans” blame methane in cow flatulence for global warming in their war against meat consumption.

            Nutty Hillary hated Khadaffi . . . from the 90s . . . and was instrumental in his demise. She had her Ambassador Stephens at Benghazi negotiating with the Turks to move weapons to the Syrian Rebels. That is why she left the 4 Americans to die . . . as they never told their story.
            The Syrian Rebels became ISIS . . . who Obama called the JV Team as they marched into Iraq and took over much of the state.
            Hence . . . Oby and Hillarious created ISIS . . . and are directly responsible for the Deaths of 10s of thousands.
            You have to be an insane leftist marxist/progressive to spout the nonsense you spout. You keep referring to “Science” yet you post NONE ! ! !

            Ill explain the point for the uninformed. Science has to be uninfluenced by money and politics to be legitimate and accepted. If you want billtions of dollars of taxpayer money to support “climate change” policies, you will have to go back to the drawing board and start with unadulterated data, because we the people don’t accept the cat food that has been fed to us. Too much money has been made by the people tooting this theory. Your personal attacks don’t help your argument, they just force us into the closet… the closet trumpians fooled you all into believing you had it made in the shade, and Hillary thought she had a get out of jail free card. her time is coming.

            The Clinton’s behavior is pretty obviously utterly self-serving and pretty obviously in the realm of what would/should/could get “little people” into serious legal problems. What did the Clinton’s sell for their many millions other than access to US govt assets / influence. Don’t forget the petty crime of stealing the White House and Air Force One silverware and whatever else has been covered up plus renting out the Lincoln Bedroom. Shameless grfiters!.

            This is what they taught us in school: “Litterbug, litterbug, where is your pride? Making a mess of the countryside! Litterbug litterbug shame on you look at the terrible things you do!” I could no more throw a cup out of a car window, than I could drop garbage on my way from Mexico. Now in school the song is, “Can a *******a get a table dance.” And of course, thanks to Bill Clinton, B.J.’s in 7th grade. Thanks Bill!

          • Steven Foster

            it’s more about money. They’re eyeballing hundreds of billions of dollars that will go to international organizations with no accountability to anyone.

          • dss

            It costs billions of dollars in research to find sustainable energy sources that are clean. Or would you rather spend three trillion dollars on destroying Iraq? Between one project and the other, I would rather support science and industries that are struggling to prevent pollution, and make life on our only livable planet sustainable. Your keeping your head in the sand, and supporting vapid defenses is not helping, and you should be embarrassed to sound so stupid in public.

          • Steven Foster

            Lol. Is it even possible for a liberal to say anything without mentioning iraq. How about we not tax and than spend the money at all? Why throw it down the garbage chute of “clean energy”

            “I don’t remember us enticing Iraq to invade Kuwait”

            Of course you don’t… because our media didn’t tell us what was going on…

            Western oil companies in Kuwait were draining Iraq’s oil reserves from underground. Kuwait owned a tiny sliver of a deposit that was primarily located under Iraq, and they were using that tiny sliver to drain the entire thing dry.

            They were stealing Iraq’s oil.

            …and, when Saddam Hussein brought the matter to the Arab League and OPEC, they rebuffed him.

            That’s why he invaded.

            Oops.

            The scientists, in order to get grants must tow the global warming mantra. If they do not, no more grants, no feeding of family in any scientific field, and no life. the fact of the matter is, of course that this is all kick back money. It is the biggest industry in the world. Slamming big corporations with regulations with which they have no choice to cooperate.

          • mostlynew

            So few understand the scientific community’s climate hustle. The only grant money available to challenge it come from industries under fire – the studies that result are automatically discounted, as well as they probably should be. Built on that is an enourmous political- commercial structure that collapses upon close inspection. All this so green weenies can feel good about themselves. The rest of us be damned.

          • dss

            It sounds like you think pollution is a good thing. It sounds like you are for poisons in the environment. Do you not realize that “regulations’ mean preventing big companies from pollution our lakes and rivers? Do you know who dirty our nation was before the EPA? Do you realize how many people die of cancer because of some of the most insidious pollutants that are poured into our air and water?

            If Pruitt is allowed to run the EPA, we are fucked. He is a known lobbyist for the oil industry and he is currently suing the EPA on behalf of big business, so they can pollute OK. You think he cares one iota for the health of the citizens of OK? No, he does not. He is on the take from big business, and he is the Attorney General, whose job it is to defend laws, not sue the EPA. Putting Pruitt in charge of the EPA will lead to the poisoning of your backyard and mine, our rivers and our streams.

            You must be against humanity. I guess you like the idea of pollution. Or maybe you are a big business troll…which I suspect most people on this page are….Paid trolls to support big oil and gas. Either that, or you are just another moron who thinks pollution is not dangerous.

            Are you also angry that doctors and chemists are given grants to find cures for disease? Your comment makes me think that you deny science at every level. Or are you actually for medicine, while denying that pollution is harmful?

            Big corporations polluted our nation within an inch of its life before the EPA was founded by President Nixon. In fact, we are dying of cancer because of the toxins in our environment. Are you against humanity? Are you for illness? Sounds like it. You sound like an uneducated asshole. I hope your realize this.

            Dear Mongoloid,
            You remind me of a girlfriend that I took out on my yacht one time for a swim out in the bay. She said, “It must be high tide the water is so deep.” Global Warming is a billion dollar industry designed to redistribute wealth. Nobody knows what the weather will be like in fifty days, never mind fifty years.

          • Scoobym3

            Think about it. How rediculous does it sound that liberals think man can actually affect the weather? Only god can do that but liberals will believe in global warming before god.

            “Dear Mongoloid” Funny

          • Scoobym3

            Doctors and chemists are not interested in curing disease. They are only interested in “treating” disease. For example, Type II diabetes used to be called Adult Onset Diabetes because it used to take that long for our current American diet to destroy the pancreas. Now kids are getting Type Ii diabetes. Instead of coming out with more drug treaments for diabetes, doctors could educate patients on diet. There’s no money in that. Same with cancer. Sugar feeds cancer but oncologist still tell cancer patients they can eat anything while they are getting poison, i mean “treatment”.

          • FrancesEve Drake

            The only problem with that lie is Ernido that they only distribute the wealth to themselves. The “narrrative” is that it is to balance the poverty in “third world countries”. I live in a third world country. Since BHO took office in 2008 EVERYTHING has deteriorated just like in the US. They say that when the US sneezes we have a cold (lol). So forget the LIES about redistribution of wealth to the poorer nations and EYEBALL THE TRUTH — taking the money from people and putting it in their own coffers.

            You’re 63 – surely you have lived long enough to realize what a sham the Democrat Party has become?

You’re either one of the elites at the party, or you’re one of the servants fetching their drinks.

            No self-respecting woman could ever vote for Clinton and its disgusting she was the best the DNC could offer. She’s a racist, a criminal and a disgusting female who aided & abetted a serial predator for 25 years, covering Bill’s crimes and destroying any of his victims who dared to speak out.

            I wasn’t a Trump fan when I voted for him, but his actions since winning the election have assured me America made the best decision possible on November 8th to save America from the gutting and plundering that is the Left, restore common sense and leave us be to earn our own money and live our lives with as little intrusion as possible.

At risk of typing all day, let me summarize: social security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, micro aggressions, safe spaces, billions of $ and nukes to Iran, destroying our military, $20T in debt, endless rounds of golf (one even interrupted a service member’s wedding which he knew about but played through anyway being the selfish, hateful pr1ck he is), attacking and maligning whites…gosh the list of ways the Left destroys the “little guy” is endless.

            What a gullible moron: “It’s a ‘CHART’ of the world’s average temperature and yes charts include graphs”

            A “chart of the world’s average temperature” is not the same thing as “the world’s actual average temperature is it?”

            The distinction is lost on gullible leftists like you.

            Would you like to see a chart on how the standard of living has improved in Cuba since Castro took over; poor old faithful Fidel painted it up on his death bed. Micheal Moore has just endorsed it: “More communists prefer Cuba over any other Marxist paradise” the famous Marxist scientist has proclaimed.

            97% of all Marxism scientists agree.

            In Cuba they dine on ambrosia and drink nectar. (It turns out that to the commie gods, their ambrosia is cat shit and their nectar is Al Gore’s piss)

            Are you trying to say that an average represents nothing physical. I.E. you can’t hold an average in your hand?

            You can’t hold gravity in your hand either.

            Is your argument then that Gravity doesn’t exist?

            My goodness you are stupid.

            Earth faces another ICE AGE within 15 YEARS as Russian scientists discover Sun ‘cooling’
            http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/723481/Earth-ICE-AGE-big-freeze-solar-activity

            At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
            http://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/climate-change-scare-tool-to-destroy-capitalism/

            We have been told now for almost three decades that man has to change his ways or his fossil-fuel emissions will scorch Earth with catastrophic warming. Scientists, politicians and activists have maintained the narrative that their concern is only about caring for our planet and its inhabitants. But this is simply not true. The narrative is a ruse. They are after something entirely different.

            If they were honest, the climate alarmists would admit that they are not working feverishly to hold down global temperatures — they would acknowledge that they are instead consumed with the goal of holding down capitalism and establishing a global welfare state.
            http://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/another-climate-alarmist-admits-real-motive-behind-warming-scare/

            As reported on the Deplorable Climate Science Blog site; NOAA claimed record heat in numerous locations is September in Africa and the Middle East. This is a remarkable feat, given that they don’t have any actual thermometers in those regions. In fact, NOAA doesn’t have any thermometers on about half of the land surface. Satellite temperatures showed that September was close to normal in those regions which NOAA declared to be record hot. Not only is the land data fake, but much of the ocean data is fake too. The global surface temperature record is garbage. This is the 21st century, and it needs to be replaced by satellite temperatures which show little or no warming this century.

            Perhaps you should have actually looked at the document fool . . .

            The United Nations Inter-governmental panel on climate change which cites 1998 to 2012 when it says in the UN IPCC technical briefing of 2013, page 37,

            Despite the robust multi-decadal warming, there exists substantial inter-annual to decadal variability in the rate of warming, with several periods exhibiting weaker trends (including the warming hiatus since 1998) (Figure TS.1). The rate of warming over the past 15 years (1998–2012; 0.05 [–0.05 to +0.15] °C per decade) is smaller than the trend since 1951 (1951–2012; 0.12[0.08 to 0.14] °C per decade).

            Never seen a UFO . . . but I just bet you have !

            SIMPLE EXPERIMENT . . . you too can be a scientist . . .

            The following is a summary of the makeup of the earths’ atmosphere:

            Imagine, if you will, viewing the atmosphere in “parts per million”. Using a vessel capable of holding 1 million equally sized grains of sand; the vessel content would be as follows:

            Nitrogen – 76.55 % or 765,500 grains of sand. Color White
            Oxygen – 20.54 % or 205,400 grains of sand. Color Pale Blue
            Argon – .91 % or 9,100 grains of sand. Color Light Tan (sand)
            These three gases make up 98% of the earths’ atmosphere; the remaining 2% are the so called “Greenhouse Gases”, without which we would freeze to death. Your vessel is now 98% full.

            Next add:
            Water Vapor – 1.95% or 19,500 grains of sand. Color Medium Blue.
            CO2 – .038% or 380 grains of sand. Color Black (“it’s a terrible hazard to humans”- quote source the EPA)
            Methane – .012% or 120 grains of sand. Color Dark Blue – (the methane number will include miscellaneous gases that are too small to measure here).

            Your vessel is now full!

            Now, of the 380 grains of Black sand that represent CO2, 364.8 (96%)are introduced to the atmosphere “naturally”- volcanoes, sea floor expansion, wet lands, etc., the remaining 15.2 grains (4%) represent mankind’s contribution to CO2 in the atmosphere. This, of course, assumes that mankind is not a “natural” entity in the makeup of life on earth.

            The 15.2 grains of Black sand are the complete volume of CO2 attributed to GLOBAL Human Activity. As industrious as the U.S has been let’s assume that we are responsible for 25% of the human contribution of atmospheric CO2 (total of 1% of the CO2 in the atmosphere). Therefore, we would be responsible for 3.8 grains of Black sand in the vessel.

            In order to correct this terrible injustice to the earth we would have to eliminate all manufacturing, all food processing, any and all industry. Business such as hotels, restaurants, bakeries, yes even “government”; shut down every plane, train, bus, motor home, SUV, and PRIUS. Homes would have to go unheated and ALL of the 300 million people in the United States would have to Stop Breathing!!!!, which renders all conditions above moot. Once all of this is accomplished you can remove 3.8 grains of Black Sand from your vessel. (Removal of the 3.8 grains assumes you are the last man standing.)

            California being what it is, if the rest of the country is unwilling to participate, then California can forge ahead on its’ own. Therefore, with the size of the California population being about 10% of the nation as a whole, once all California industry is eliminated and all residence Stop Breathing, you can remove .38 (POINT 38) grains of Black Sand from your vessel. The .38 grains would likely be offset with Dark Blue grains of sand from all of the methane emitted from the dead bodies after breathing stops.

            I hope this has put the issue in a usable perspective for you. Introduce “SOUND SCIENCE” to the nation, perhaps we can move forward with a logical approach and eliminate some of the misguided and damaging legislation that is currently being proposed in this country for an absolute farce. Maybe then we get get some of our industry back from overseas and regan our natyions prospertiy.

            Deflect, deflect and deflect some more . . .

            YOU have zero science . . . merely “Belief” and “Scare” . . . you are bat-chit krazy man . . .

            Some more facts on CO2 . . . ALL proven Science . . .

            We know that there are two very different mechanisms that drive dynamics of CO2 exchange between air-water and air-biomass and therefore there is no such thing as global levels of CO2. Levels of CO2 above the water mass, covering 70% of the Earth surface is controlled by solubility of CO2 in water which is solely driven by temperature; while levels of CO2 above the biomass that covers most of the land surfaces is solely driven and controlled by photosynthesis.

            We know that the only way to know exact numbers about CO2 concentrations above the water and biomass surfaces is to measure them at the surface levels, which we do not do, and therefore use of CO2 levels measured at a single point on the globe and at 4000 meters altitude (Mauna Loa Observatory, MLO, at Hawaii) represents one of the most miss-used high accuracy dataset in the history of modern science.

            We know that the total emissions/reabsorption of CO2 by nature makes emissions of CO2 by burning fossil fuels totally insignificant and lost in the instrumental accuracy levels.

            We know that the levels of CO2 that we live amidst in our everyday lives have nothing in common with the observed CO2 levels at MLO based at an altitude of 4000 meters above sea level.

            We know that there is no difference between CO2 levels accurately measured 200 years ago and last year – they all go up and down depending when and where you measure them.

            We know that there is no possible correlation between CO2 levels dissolved in water in its liquid state and CO2 levels found in ice, i.e. water in its solid state.

            We know that it is CO2 that makes major contribution to the width of tree rings. So, no CO2 means no tree rings and no life.

            Are all these REAL Scientists wrong ? ? ?

            Not that the fascist, anti-science left would actually have the intellectual honesty to review this, but here are peer reviewed scientists – in their own words – on the scam of BIG GREEN MONEY global warming: (sorry for the bad line breaks, but from a 400 page paper I did on the scam)(author)

            “Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical.” – Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology and formerly of NASA who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent
            scientists of the last 100 years.”

            “Inevitably in climate science, when data conflicts with models, a small coterie of scientists can be counted upon to modify the data…That the data should always need correcting to agree with models is totally implausible and indicative of a certain corruption within the climate science community.” Dr. Richard Lindzen, MIT

            Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

            “The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists,” – Indian geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the
            Planet.

            “Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.

            “The models and forecasts of the UN IPCC “are incorrect because they only are based on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for example, solar activity.” – Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera, a researcher at the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico

            “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” – U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA.

            “Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.” – . Geoffrey G. Duffy, a professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, NZ.

            “After reading [UN IPCC chairman] Pachauri’s asinine comment [comparing skeptics to] Flat Earthers, it’s hard to remain quiet.” – Climate statistician Dr. William M. Briggs, who specializes in the statistics of forecast evaluation, serves on the American Meteorological Society’s Probability and Statistics Committee and is an Associate Editor of Monthly Weather Review. (Note: there really IS a Flat Earth Society, at http://www.theflatearthsociety…, whose president Danieel Shenton, thinks “the evidence suggests fossil fuel usage is contributing to global warming.” (See http://www.tinyurl.com/ozn2wfe. So much for Obama’s comment that “We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society.”

            “For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?” – Geologist Dr. David Gee the chairman of the science committee of the 2008 International Geological Congress who has authored 130 plus peer reviewed papers, and is currently at Uppsala University in Sweden.

            “Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate changes after the fact.” – Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland, who reversed his belief in man-made warming to become a skeptic, is a former member of the Dutch UN IPCC committee.

            “Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.” – Atmospheric physicist James A. Peden, formerly of the Space Research and Coordination Center in Pittsburgh.

            “Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.

            ______________________________________

            This is all so silly when the facts are so simple:

            CO2 is a “trace gas” in air and is insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight per molecule as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat producing 99.8% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.2% of it. For this we should destroy our economy, starve the world, cause hunger, riots and wars?

            There is no “greenhouse effect” in an atmosphere. A greenhouse has a solid, clear cover trapping heat. The atmosphere does not trap heat as gas molecules cannot form surfaces to work as greenhouses that admit and reflect energy depending on sun angle. Gases do not form surfaces as their molecules are not in contact.

            The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD Micheal Mann erased for his “hockey stick” was several Fahrenheit degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was 500 years of world peace and abundance, longest ever.

            Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 rises followed temperature by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. Therefore temperature change is cause and CO2 change is effect. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

            Methane is called “a greenhouse gas 20 to 500 times more potent than CO2,” by Heidi Cullen and Jim Hansen, but it is not per the energy absorption chart at the American Meteorological Society. It has an absorption profile very similar to nitrogen which is classified “transparent” to IR, heat waves and is only present to 18 ppm. “Vegans” blame methane in cow flatulence for global warming in their war against meat consumption.

            Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

            Most scientists and science educators work for tax supported institutions. They are eager to help government raise more money for them and they love being seen as “saving the planet.”

            This report was from The Washington Post, November 2, 1922 – 93 years ago:

            “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at
            Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well-known glaciers have
            entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.”

            “The ability of certain trace gases to be relatively transparent to incoming visible light from the sun, yet opaque to the energy radiated from the earth is one of the best understood processes in the atmospheric sciences.”

            “It is an indication of how science is gradually being influenced by political views. The reality hasn’t been keeping up with the [computer] models. Therefore, if people are proposing to do major changes to the world’s economic system we must have much more solid information.” —Climate Change apostate, Professor Lennart Bengtsson

            “Pay no attention to the man behind that curtain!” —Eco-religionists and power-hungry politicians, in unison.

            I will keep pounding the podium, and saying it over and over: This whole Global Warming/Climate Change agenda is political and economic, and has very little to do with real science. There is no crisis!

            From the Global Warming Policy Foundation: “Scientists in Cover-Up of ‘Damaging’ Climate View.”

            In an echo of the infamous “Climategate” scandal at the University of East Anglia, one of the world’s top academic journals rejected the work of five experts after a reviewer privately denounced it as “harmful”.

            Lennart Bengtsson, a research fellow at the University of Reading and one of the authors of the study, said he suspected that intolerance of dissenting views on climate science was preventing his paper from being published. “The problem we now have in the climate community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of a climate activist,” he added.

            Professor Bengtsson’s paper challenged the finding of the UN’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that the global average temperature would rise by up to 4.5C if greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were allowed to double.

            It suggested that the climate might be much less sensitive to greenhouse gases than had been claimed by the IPCC in its report last September, and recommended that more work be carried out “to reduce the underlying uncertainty”.

            The five contributing scientists, from America and Sweden, submitted the paper to Environmental Research Letters, one of the most highly regarded journals, at the end of last year but were told in February that it had been rejected.

            A scientist asked by the journal to assess the paper under the peer review process wrote that he strongly advised against publishing it because it was “less than helpful”.

            The unnamed scientist concluded: “Actually it is harmful as it opens the door for oversimplified claims of ‘errors’ and worse from the climate sceptics media side.”

            Professor Bengtsson resigned from the advisory board of Lord Lawson of Blaby’s climate sceptic think-tank this week after being subjected to what he described as McCarthy-style pressure from fellow academics.

            The world was created to be much more resilient than these climate-bloviators want to admit. There is a proper place for earth-care, but practically everything out of the Climate Change movement has nothing to do with it.

            “CO2 is .04% of the atmosphere and can warm nothing. ” – DCW left coast

            The average temperature of the earth is about 400’C above absolute zero.

            .04% of 400 = 0.16’C

            So at a minimum we can expect 0.16’C of warming from a doubling of CO2.

            But in reality the value is about ten times larger because the primary components of the the atmosphere, nitrogen and Oxygen are transparent to Infared Radiation. So CO2 plays a much larger roll in keeping the earth’s surface insulated than it’s simple proportion would indicate.

            When you learn how to add and subtract this will be obvious to you.

            I agree with most of what you posted. However, regarding using oil, it would be great to get most of it from NA and forget supporting the awful ME regimes, it is a global market and as long as private companies are developing oil resources, they are going to put it on the global market to get the best price. So the gov’t would have to force NA companies into some kind of regional marketplace and I don’t think we want that for many reasons. So I think the energy independence thing is kind of not really a realistic possibility given the nature of world markets. It would be good to support North American energy development so that we could be independent if the world situation deteriorated.

          • Freedom & more freedom

            I was in the oil drilling business here in Texas. I do not understand why we need one drop of oil from outside the USA. With the new huge oil/gas discovery in Texas and allowing new refineries to be built we can easily be energy independent. Drain the swamp and it can be done

          • Truthasaurus Rex

            I’ll paste from above why; :)…We (the USA.inc) use Mid East oil because if we weren’t, another country e.g.- China, India or Russia would have that access. It’s a strategic move and well thought out when you consider the alternatives…We now have operations, with OUR people in those countries…Trust me when I suggest, the Man, makes NO mistakes…Everything has a purpose. And, as an American and student of big Oil for decades…I hope that we stop using it and collapse those scumbags in Dubai…They were capping wells in Prudhoe and north slope Alaska in the 90’s because we have TOO much oil. That area has enough oil to run the world forever…As I am sure you know, if you follow mining reports, texas wells, once thought run out are now refilling.

          • Freedom & more freedom

            I agree with you as I understand the political aspects behind it, however, we the tax payers, we the Americans are being drained in our balance of trade for it. If we were to free up our energy sources we could supply the free world with their needs.
            By the way, the new Texas find can supply the USA its entire needs for 20 to 30 years. There are energy fields in Ohio, Penn, W. Virgina and who knows where else.
            Peak Oil equals BS

          • Truthasaurus Rex

            Peak oil is indeed bullshit and I wish we had a say so in how our energy sources are distributed but, unfortunately, we are just slaves (legally) on the Federal Plantation…We no sooner have a say so in oil policy than we do on Pentagon spending…

            The Marcellus in the eastern U.S. is one of the largest gas fields in the world. If we would fast track LNG facilities on the east coast we could export gas to Europe and the resulting windfall would be a tremendous boost to the economies of the Pennsylvania and West Virginia. If New York doesn’t want to participate, the taxpayers of that state might disagree with their foolish political leaders. Presently new LNG (liquefied natural gas) facilities are meeting resistance from the federal and local governments and losing massive opportunities to create wealth in those states, not to mention the federal government. And the environmental interests should be happy since natural gas is a very clean energy source.

            I’ll give you a different perspective as a USAF vet…We (the USA.inc) use ME oil because if we weren’t, another country e.g.- China, India or Russia would have that access. It’s a strategic move and well thought out when you consider the alternatives…We now have operations, with OUR people in those countries…Trust me when I suggest, the Man, makes NO mistakes…Everything has a purpose.

          • rockyndallas

            Large American oil companies, supported by our government decided that they would focus on the world’s largest remaining reserves because huge companies need opportunities of that scale to ‘move their needle’. Smaller oil companies that have stayed in the domestic search for energy resources have transformed our energy resource base by the introduction of new technologies and concepts. These companies have ushered us into an age of energy independence and the possibility of becoming a major exporter of fossil fuels, thereby providing a huge boost to our domestic economy. If we would simply take care of our own business here in America it would matter far less what other countries do. Our fixation with the Middle East was predicated entirely on the assumption that we needed their production. That is no longer the case and they have less leverage as a result. You have a point as it relates to what we have done in the past, but fortunately we no longer have to worry about such things,

There is no fixation and YOU are not “WE”…”We” aka “them” dba USA co. inc. … “They” didn’t go to the mid east because “They” needed to or were worried about depleting inventory…”They” went to steal it from the A-rabs…Most likely funded and logistically supplied by the as yet to be formed Israel…:)…Veritas vos liberabit.

            There are of course all kinds of averages, there is a mean, a mode, and a median. In addition there are effective averages and root means squared averages. Moreover all types averages can be distributed over spacial or temporal distributions. Finally for continuous functions all types of averages can be sampling averages or fully integrated averages. Which combination of averages and methods are appropriate for measuring the “average” temperature of the planet?

            If you were not an lazy, ignorant, fool you would have lifted a finger and found out. How many decades have you been procrastinating, and content with your ignorance?

            In assessing weather the earth is warming or not is a metric that increases as global temperature increases. The metric chosen is a weighted average surface temperature, which is taken to be sum over_all_regions (region_area * temperature)/ total area.

            This metric converges to T when T is constant over the entire surface of the earth, and is a discrete approximation to the integrated average over a surface as defined by physicists using calculus.

            The limit of the above summation equals the integral average of the surface.

            It all sounds so simple to a simpleton shit-for-brains. The “experts” (armies of shit-for-brains, like you) tell us that global warming doesn’t really “warm the globe” which on its face is a bullshit statement and its not really possible to tell which localities are exempt from its wrath.

            Thus New York City can experience really bad “global warming” while Albany 100 miles away can be totally exempt from “global warming” over the same centuries.

            Now if we “average” 1000 thermometers from New York City with one from Albany and the “average” of the 1000 from New York indicate the globe has warmed 5 degrees F and Albany has stayed the same over the same century, just how much will the globe have warmed using these 1001 thermometers as a proxy for global temperature rise over the last century ?

            You can use addition, multiplication, long division, differential or integral calculus. You can write a 10,000 line hunk of bullshit Fortran code or even use a spread sheet. Its not that hard.

            Just tell me to a precision of 0.01 degrees (like the “experts” do) how much the globe has warmed over the last century using these two cities as a proxy for “global warming”

            How much “information” is required to “average” the thermal energy of every molecule of planet earth?

            By the way any proper measurement of average heat content is measured in joules, not degrees. There is a huge difference, but this simple fact may be lost on you.

            If its not the average heat content of the entire planet, then which subset of its molecules are included in “average ‘heat content’ of the Earth” be precise.

            If you were smart you would do a statistical analysis of the error in order to characterize it. Compute the standard deviation, ensure that it is normally distributed, look at some residuals etc.

            Most scientific measurements are proxy measurements. Kelivin for example didn’t measure anything on his own but relied on the proxy measurement of the spectra of CO2, made by other scientists.

            They couldn’t detect long wave photons directly in Kelvin’s time, so they used a bolometer and a thermocouple to make their crude measurements.

            The temperatures of Lake Victoria can actually be determined by oxygen isotope ratios of sediments and mollusc cross sections taken from the lake at different depths and dated via carbon dating.

            Undoubtedly there are other methods that can also be used.

            The temperatures of Lake Victoria can also be determined by “scientists” consulting an ouija board shit-for-brains. The error bars for each are about the same shit-for-brains.

            Unverifiable models used to reconstruct precise temperature data from the past is how Lord Kelvin achieved his “peer reviewed” age of the sun at no more than 30 million years.shit-for-brains.

            Mother-of-pearl or nacre (pronounced nay-ker), the lustrous, tough-as-nails biomineral that lines some seashells, has been shown to be a faithful record of ancient ocean temperature.
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9cf3b0569b92c6e7fcc699c3b5a3625269c7b90743cc45c0187b1b4e7a3d3994.jpg
            Writing online Thursday, Dec. 15, in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, a team led by University of Wisconsin-Madison physics Professor Pupa Gilbert describes studies of the physical attributes of nacre in modern and fossil shells showing that the biomineral provides an accurate record of temperature as the material is formed, layer upon layer, in a mollusk.

            “We can very accurately correlate nacre tablet thickness with temperature,” says Gilbert, explaining that mother-of-pearl is formed as mollusks lay down microscopic polygonal tablets of the mineral aragonite like brickwork to build layers of the shiny biomineral.
            The work is important because it provides scientists with a new and potentially more accurate method of measuring ancient ocean temperatures, improving on methods now used with other biominerals to tease out the record of the environmental conditions at which the materials formed in the distant past.

            “Everyone else measures temperatures in the ancient world using chemical proxies,” says Gilbert, referencing methods that, for example, use ratios of isotopic oxygen locked into tiny fossil shells made by marine microorganisms known as Foraminifera to get a snapshot of ocean temperatures in the distant past.

            The method devised by Gilbert and her collaborators is extraordinarily simple: using just a scanning electron microscope and a cross section of shell, it is possible to measure the thickness of the layered microscopic tablets that compose nacre in a shell. The thickness of the tablets, explains Gilbert, correlates with ocean temperature as measured in modern shells when ocean temperatures were known at the time the shells were formed.

            The new work by the researchers from Wisconsin, Harvard, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides a novel physical approach to measuring past climate, says Gilbert, an expert in biomineral formation.

            “If what you are measuring is a physical structure, you see it directly,” says Gilbert. “You just measure nacre tablet thickness, the spacing of the lines, and it corresponds to temperature. When the temperature is warmer, the layers get thicker.”

            The following graph shows how global humidity levels are increasing as the planet warms.

            The correlation between Mother of pearl deposits and ocean temperature at the time of the deposit is calibrated with modern temperature records.

            The models show that because there is a continent rather than an ocean at the south poll, there will at first be a strengthening of the southern polar vortex that will keep the air over the south poll, over the south poll, and limit mixing with surrounding air.

            Thus there will be a minor cooling effect initially. But eventually – a few decades after the north polar vortex begins to destabilize, – which we are now seeing – the southern polar vortex will follow the same path and temperatures over the Antarctic will begin to warm as well.

            There is zero probability that any cycle is responsible for the observed warming.

            But it is good to see you admit – contrary to your earlier denialism – that the globe is actually warming.

            The fact is, the wind strength in a real forest, is close to zero due to the fact that the trees – particularly conifer’s produce so much wind resistance.

            Liar… Liar. Pants on fire…

            Climate sensitivity describes how sensitive the global climate is to a change in the amount of energy reaching the Earth’s surface and lower atmosphere (a.k.a. a radiative forcing). For example, we know that if the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earth’s atmosphere doubles from the pre-industrial level of 280 parts per million by volume (ppmv) to 560 ppmv, this will cause an energy imbalance by trapping more outgoing thermal radiation in the atmosphere, enough to directly warm the surface approximately 1.2°C. However, this doesn’t account for feedbacks, for example ice melting and making the planet less reflective, and the warmer atmosphere holding more water vapor (another greenhouse gas).

            Climate sensitivity is the amount the planet will warm when accounting for the various feedbacks affecting the global climate. The relevant formula is:

            dT = λ*dF

            Where ‘dT’ is the change in the Earth’s average surface temperature, ‘λ’ is the climate sensitivity, usually with units in Kelvin or degrees Celsius per Watts per square meter (°C/[W m-2]), and ‘dF’ is the radiative forcing, which is discussed in further detail in the Advanced rebuttal to the ‘CO2 effect is weak’ argument.

            https://skepticalscience.com/print.php?r=258

            Climate Analysis

            Over the past 35 years, the troposphere has warmed significantly. The global average temperature has risen at an average rate of about 0.13 degrees Kelvin per decade (0.23 degrees F per decade).

            Solar Radiation and the Earth’s Energy Balance.

            Radiation transfer from Sun to Earth.

            Properties of Solar radiation: The Sun is located at the center of our Solar System, at a distance of about 150 x 106 kilometers from Earth. With a surface temperature of 5780 K (degrees Kelvin = degrees C + 273.15), the energy flux at the surface of the Sun is approximately 63 x 106 W/m2 (Do you know what law of radiative transfer do we use to calculate this number? Check the link to radiative heat transfer.) This radiative flux maximizes at a wavelength of about 0.5 μm

            LOL. The Global temperatures that are of concern are Global surface temperatures of course. This is because we live on the surface of the Earth, and not suspended 5 miles in the air.

            You will find that as you go even higher in the atmosphere, the temperature trend actually goes negative. The stratosphere is cooling.

            LOL. This is a verified prediction of the Global atmosphere models as well as back of the envelope calculations, and is a result of lower amounts of IR making it to the stratosphere and the reduced density of the stratosphere as the lower atmosphere warms and expands.

            Of course they do. The oceans hold vastly more energy than the atmosphere, and take longer to heat up or cool down.

            “computers and their programs are the antithesis of science shit for brains.” – sirgareth

            Computers have been an integral part of science since computers were invented.

            Without computers, the computer you are now using wouldn’t have been possible to construct.

            Computers allow the solution of problems that are impossible to solve with individual equations.

            Computer programs are to physics what calculus is to algebra.

            The ignorant often think that there is an equation that allows the prediction of any aspect of any system.

            That is false.

            It is a very rare situation where any single equation embodies the solution to a physical problem.

            Even simple physical systems like pendula have no exact solutions. The exact solutions that exist are based on the assumption of a restoring force that is proportional to pendula displacement. But this is only an approximation to the real world situation.

            Similarly it is presumed that spring displacement observes the hook equation. But i fact, hook is only an approximation. There is no exact solution.

            Similarly there is no exact solution to orbital mechanics. In fact no generalized solution exists for orbital mechanics with more than 2 bodies. And none exist for 2 bodies in General Relativity.

            The only way the positions of the planets can be found aeon’s in the future is to actually run a computer model of the solar system.

          • VendicarDecarian0

            The first climate model used a pencil, and was computed by Lord Kelvin in the mid 1800’s.

            His simplistic model calculations showed a climate sensitivity of about 3’C, which is pretty much what the current computer models show.

            Here is one he did do shit-for-brains:

            With his mathematical models, Kelvin rather pompously demonstrated that the earth must have been a hellish ball of molten rock only a few tens of millions of years ago, and that the sun could not have been shining for more than about 30 million years. Kelvin was actually modeling what he thought was global and solar cooling. A majority of his fellow physicists (97% ?) supported Kelvin.(peer reviewed?)

            However 3 trillion Has been spent on George Bush’s war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, and at least another trillion is scheduled to be spent on that.

            In addition 5 trillion has been spent keeping AmeriKKKa out of the near depression that the Republican Party created during the Bush Administration’s time in office.

            OK shit-for-brains, enlighten us by reprising us of the “average” temperature of the sun.

          • VendicarDecarian0

            “reprising us of the “average” temperature of the sun”. – sirgareth

            LOL. Since I have not computed the average temperature of the sun for you (LOL), It can not be “reprised” by me.

            You have used the word incorrectly. Also you omitted the “for” from the phrase “reprising for us”..

            LOL. If you are going to use words, you should know what they mean, NutJob.

            In any case, to the calculation. Since we are dealing with the earth’s surface temperature, the sun’s average surface temperature will be calculated.

            As you correctly indicated earlier, there are many ways to define the average, and in this instance I will define it as in terms of the Boltzmann distribution such that Total Power Output per unit area, (unit radiant exitance) = sigma * T**4.

            Solar energy generation is measured to be 3.828 E26 watts.
            Sigma = Boltzmann’s constant = 5.670 E -8
            Sun Surface Area = 6.09×1018 m**2

            So the Average solar temperature computes to be 5770’K

            Current measurements for T are actually 5772 K

            Solar output varies by a factor of 0.03 over the solar cycle or about +-20’K in the average surface temperature.

            LOL!

          • sirgareth

            You missed on so many points I don’t have time to enumerate then all shit-for-brains.

            First I said the sun not its surface and even If I did specify its surface, the sun is graced by sunspots that vary in number and magnitude all the time. Sunspots are considerable cooler than other areas of the surface. The correct answer is that its impossible to offer more than a gross estimate.

            Secondly, global warming is about atmospheres not surfaces so even your assumption is wrong headed shit-for-brains

            Thirdly, where suns surface is “approximately” (precision is not possible) 10,000 F whereas the outer corona is over 3,500,000 F.

            OK shit-for-brains which contains more heat a cubic meter of the surface at 10K F or the outer corona at 3.5M F?

            Don’t bother answering, I’m growing weary of schooling you “perfesser”

            The independent BEST climate reconstruction puts the error in modern measurements of global average temperature at close to zero. The error bars are indistinguishable from the thickness of the pens used to draw the plots.

            “Al Gore never got close to a science course in college;”

            Scientist Roger Revelle was one of Gore’s professors at Harvard.

            “As early as the 1980s, the energy industry began taking steps to prevent the public from believing that humans are warming the planet. Revelle’s belief until his death that global average warming in the 21st Century would probably fall in the range of one to three degrees Celsius, a position well-known to his colleagues, held great sway in science circles and policy bodies. Revelle’s student at Harvard, Al Gore, was gaining public attention through the 1980s and he was passionate about what Roger had led him to see.”

            Gore wanted to create a sense of panic so he could make even more millions than he already had by selling carbon offsets through his own company. Forbes referred to him and his partner in 2013 as, “Al Gore and his carbon credit huckstering partner David Blood, both principals at Generation Investment Management (GIM).” Congress never passed the cap-and-trade legislation he needed.

            People like Gore look ridiculous, but they are dangerous sociopaths who are willing to exploit others to enrich themselves. He must have known his propagandistic predictions weren’t true, but he needed others to believe it. No wonder the movie was banned in British schools unless there was a balanced discussion.

            The bulk of the energy emitted by the sun is in the visible range. That is why our eyes evolved to see the visible range. We don’t see heat.

            In any case the majority of energy from the sun passes though the atmosphere, is absorbed by the ground, converted to long wave infared radiation and re-radiated away from the surface. This long wave radiation is what is absorbed by CO2 and 50 percent of the time re-radiated back down toward the earth.

            Since there is more long wave radiation moving outward from the earth than inward from the sun, the net effect is warming.

            Anyone who cares to eat.

            “As you must realize if the sun cools” – FollowDaStupid

            Photons emitted at the core of the sun take something on the order of 100,000 years to reach the sun’s surface. They diffuse outward from the core very slowly due to the very high density of the plasma, and the fact that the plasma is of course composed of electrically charged particles.

            Plasma acts as an effective shield for electromagnetic radiation.

            The long transfer time has implications for the rate at which the sun can change temperature. Since the reserve energy that is slowly making it’s way to the surface of the sun is so large, and the speed so slow, there is essentially a constant reserve of energy below the sun’s surface that is being released into the layers above.

            Since the reserve is essentially constant and the sun’s emission rate is governed by the radiance curve of a black body where E = sigma * Area * T**4, there is no way for the sun’s output to change by more than a couple of percent, without a significant change in it’s surface area, which translates to a change in it’s radius.

            E = sigma * 4 * pi * R**2 * t**4

            t will also be a function of r, but this will be related to the depth of the compression wave that any breathing mode will reach.

            Roughly speaking delata V will be proportional to delta t. and if we set the depth of the compression wave to be 10% of R, we get R**2-(R-1000)**2 is proportional to delta t.

            So delta t is proportional to -1000R

            So dE = sigma * pi * R**2 * (r0+k*1000R)**4 dt.

            Since dE must be close to zero due to the very large reserve of E, then dt must be even smaller.

            In practical terms dt can not change by more than a few percent over time periods longer than a century.

            So the proposition “if the sun cools”, isn’t going to happen any time soon.

            It just ins’t physically possible.

We eliminated a lot of particulate pollution, which was smart. No we’re going after CO2, which is ridiculous. To think humans are going to completely change the climate of an entire planet in a matter of decades is so silly.

            As an example, the same kinds of people claim that a nuclear war would put the Earth into a Nuclear Winter. Yet, nearly 2,000 nuclear warheads have been detonated since 1945, and the climate didn’t even flinch.

            The reality is, most of what mankind does is a drop in a very large bucket. It’s why Fukushima hasn’t irradiated the whole Pacific like some nuts claimed it would. It’s why you could literally dump every nuclear reactor and every bit of nuclear waste into the Pacific and not change much.

            These people overestimate our ability to change climate and underestimate how vast this planet is. It’s like ants living in a hole in your wall being worried about changing the temperature of your living room.

            A CRACK IN ANTARCTICA IS FORMING AN ICEBERG THE SIZE OF DELAWARE

            An iceberg the size of Delaware is starting to break away from Antarctica. It began with a small crack, but has now grown 70 miles long and more than 300 feet wide. When it reaches the edges of the ice sheet, the state-sized chunk will drift away into the sea.
            The crack is a third of a mile deep—reaching all the way to the sea below. It’s a relatively new rift in the ice sheet, called Larsen C, but is following in its icy brethren’s footsteps: Larsen A and B both broke away from the main Antarctic sheet in the last two decades in much the same way. All three began with clefts in the ice and eventually floated away to disintegrate.

          • Not sure what this has to do with the price of tea in China.

            It in no way describes to what extent human activity contributes to it. That is my point. The climate changes, has always changed, and will always change. There will be a glacial period in the future at some point. There will be a much warmer period at some point as well, when the Ice Age we are currently in (and have been for all of human history) finally ends.

            With or without humans, the climate will change. Pointing to something changing and saying “look! we’re doing that!” is silly at best and grossly arrogant at worst. There is no full model of the climate, so we cannot predict how it will change or what, if any, effects human activity contributes.

            Overall, a recent estimate puts Antarctic net mass balance at -71 ± 53 gigatonnes per year8, so just negative over the 19 year survey. Mass losses are increasing in West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula. The mass balance of West Antarctica is dominated by dynamic losses from the Amundsen Sea sector, and dynamic gains from the Kamb Ice Stream8. From the period 2005-2010, Shepherd et al. (2012) estimate the mass balance of the entire Antarctic Ice Sheet to be -81 ± 37 gigatonnes per year8.
            An unweighted average of recent estimates suggests that Antarctica moved from a weakly negative mass balance in the 1990s to a faster rate of mass loss at a rate of between -45 and -120 gigatonnes per year7. Larger dynamic losses in West Antarctica are being partially offset by increases in accumulation over East Antarctica.

            Accelerating total mass losses from Antarctica
            The GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellite gravity mission shows that total mass loss in Antarctica is accelerating over time. They found that total mass loss increased by 26 ± 14 gigatonnes per year from 2002 to 20099. Rignot et al. (2011) found a smaller acceleration of 14.5±2 gigatonnes per year from 1993-20115, but this change is still three times larger than that found for mountain glaciers and ice caps.

            Did Al Gore say “climate change” or “global warming” in his video “An Inconvenient Truth”? Have to admit I only watched outtakes from it myself; hard to get too motivated from my vantage point:

            –I took Environmental Physics from respected enviro-scientist John Harte in 1979 (he was a close associate of Ehrlich and Holdren)–the course explained the “greenhouse effect” but there was no panic, the big thing the curriculum emphasized was we were running out of everything especially oil

            –I still have my copy of the “Club of Rome” they made me read in college in 1978, it stated flatly that we would run out of oil by…..2015

            In my 6th grade science text a decade earlier than that it showed a graph of the previous Ice Ages (note the plural) and how the last one ended 12,000 years ago when the ice sheets started melting from as far south as Sacramento…it simply said “it is going to get warmer until is stops and starts getting cold again as it did in the previous cycles”

            when the NY Times isn’t even as coherent as an old elementary science text it kind of tells you where we are. The childish insistence of only “man made” change is pathetic.

            We know that there is nothing in common in IR spectra between CO2, methane and water and yet they have been classified together as ‘greenhouse gases’ because they absorb infrared radiation, together with millions of other molecules.

            We know that CO2 in the atmosphere could not be detected by a standard IR-spectrometer and yet that property of CO2 has been used to argue for the existence of a greenhouse effect.

            We know that all the knowledge about the physical world comes from experiments that can be validated and not from calculations that cannot be validated. And yet, everything about man-made global warming is about calculations and NOTHING about measurements.

            I remember the comping ice age thing well. Here is how is see it: Fear sells, liberals are more emotion over thought and bingo, they pedal something to be fearful of. The climate has always been changing. What causes it, hair spray, hydrocarbons, cow farts? Too many government grants going to so called scientists to “prove” what they’ve been granted to push.

          • MikeB

            The real reason for the hysteria is they want to spread the wealth with billions going to monetary support and grants for the third world in the name of coping with global warming. How do you think they got the pope to buy into this scheme. More than likely didnt tell him the whole story and he bit, doesnt hurt that he has a revolutionary history coming from South America.

            The term “Global Warming” describes that the seas are warmer and warming faster than they normally would. Some parts of the Earth will experience extremes in temperature, because of climate disruption. Some experience colder temps and unusual amounts of snow, while other parts of the world have record temperatures and extreme drought.

            The recorded record warmth in this nation goes up every single year. This is a fact. It is affecting our local climate. In some parts of the world, like China, their severe manmade drought is preventing rainfall. The rivers are drying up. Their crops cannot grow.

            In Syria, their civil war began with many years of record drought in Syria. People had no food. They had to migrate to other parts of the country, and rather than feeding them, Assad decided to kill them. The entire debacle began with unabated drought.

            (Sigh!) How I long for the good old days when every day featured temperatures of 58-81F and soft and salubrious breezes blew throughout the day and night, when there were no hurricanes (or harricanes as Jerry Lee Lewis used to say), tornadoes, or severe winters. Then Man had to go and eff it all up. Back in the day all we had to contend with were droughts, poisonous snakes, wild animals, smallpox, leprosy, the Black Plague, malaria, polio, cholera and an average lifespan of less than thirty years. Those were the Good Old Days.

            If I’m not mistaken the Ozone hole was real and has pretty much been reversed but that would be one case where a specific action HAs yielded the result that we were after. Man made “global” level climate change is impossible for us to create or stop

          • Wished he would have picked Myron Ebell for the position. Ebell has been on his transition team wrt environment/EPA issues and his position was more inclined to dismantle the EPA.

            – Freeze the regs at 2010 levels and repeal all regs since ’10
            – 10 yr ‘holiday’ on any new regs to stabilize the business environment
            – Dismantle the Fed EPA agency – morphing 20% of it into Interior Dept
            – 50% of current EPA budget block granted to states for enforcement of 2010 regs and general oversight of environment
            – No current Fed EPA employee may seek state level position (i.e., the purge of the leftist running the EPA)

            The EPA must be DISMANTLED – they cost individuals and businesses over $1 trillion dollars a year and also loss of productivity (incalculable) on top of that – its time to delete this leftist parasite agency.

            I hope certain limits would be placed on how much the states can regulate, perhaps under the interstate commerce clause. I hate my home state with their shutting down nuclear power plants and hydroelectric plants which has driven the price of electricity so high that we are rivaling electric costs in Hawaii yet have a much hotter climate. This is driving business out of state, not to mention the high cost to households which alone adds up to billions a month over the approximately 10 million households in this state.

            In a move so stupid that it could only happen in government they’ve taken out so many power plants that we no longer generate enough electricity to meet demand. In addition, they are going to close the last nuclear plant in the state which generates nearly 10% of our electricity. On top of it, they have mandated that a certain percentage of cars on California roads be electric and this percentage increases each year. Where is all this electricity to come from? Also, if electric cars were the way to go people would be buying them without the government having to provide job robbing subsidies and under force of law to buy them. So much for a market economy.

            ANY agency that in effect WRITES LAW (and calls them regulations) usurps the role of Congress. Therefore, ALL such agencies must suffer one of two fates (or a combination of the two): 1. Every single reg and change of regs MUST pass Congressional debate and approval resulting in a BILL which then goes through the system to become an actual law. Or, 2., While agencies can be tasked to help enforce laws, NO agency shall be permitted to make a law/regulation except those governing their own internal operations. Legislating is the job of our Legislative Branch, never of alphabet-soup agencies. I know, #Libtards, this takes all the fun out being bureaucratic dcikheads. Too bad, so sad.

          • sirgareth

            Science starts as theory until facts prove the theory or disproves it.

            except for denialists will ALWAYS say that climate research based on modelling is totally devoid of utility, despite that scientific methods are employed as assiduously in that area as they are in all others, and ignoring that scientists, using models, have predicted warming (which is what we’re getting) for the last forty years

          • sirgareth

            Modeling a theory that has no method of disproof is a fool’s errand.

          • Nick

            You don’t model theories. Theories ARE models. Theories are ideas or explanations of how things work. They aren’t expected to be exactly representative of reality, but rather are expected to provide a measure of predictability. Theories are just about always replaced – through time – by better theories. What denialists don’t get (or don’t WANT to get) is that you can’t prove theories in the scientific sense; and this is because you can never know enough about the natural world to consider all effects, and you can never observe with absolute precision and accuracy (so they say THERE’S NO PROOF! – as if proof is something easy or possible to come by).

          • sirgareth

            Yes theories are models, but 10,000 lines of fu’ked-up Fortran code is not a theory.

            There are no theories that can accuracy predict the stock market or the millions of micro-climates will perform over the next 100 years or how much more ice will accumulate in the Antarctic over the same time period.

            As Yogi Berra put it: “predictions are really hard, especially about the future”

            The hubris of this fake charlatan climate scam is offensive; carnival barkers have more credibility.

            Yes, you can model natural behavior if you stick to what is actually known which is precious little. For instance people who grow vegetables indoors in real greenhouses , have modeled how much better they grow if more CO2 is introduced into the air and these models ALWAYS work.

            We will never be fooled by the ignorance of foisting the megadeath of socialism on the world for scads of theories, none of which have ever worked, for results that add even more misery to people’s lives.

            I do not know if the next century’s millions of climates will be marginally warmer or cooler here or there over the next century, but neither does anyone else. NO ONE knows more than me about this and I freely admit know nothing. Why cant we have the same honesty from these fake fortune tellers who call their crystal balls “science”

            It makes me nauseous. .

            For almost all of the world’s populations warmer is better and more CO2 feeds more plants, animals and people. 400 ppm is near carbon starvation to a food hungry planet.

          • Nick

            It’s the easiest thing in the world to do to criticize the work of others (without offering anything better). And, since nobody has done better than those folks at NCAR, NOAA, and NASA at predicting global temperature averages, they should be listened to and/or challenged with a better model(s). CO2 doesn’t “feed” anyone. If conditions aren’t near-perfect for growing the crops that civilization has counted on for sustenance these thousands of years in the present age, then many fewer folks will be eating. The plants did fine on this planet with 280 ppm, and 400 ppm doesn’t need to be augmented for the sake of plants. Civilization has never known 400 ppm or above (or even above 280), and those who welcome higher CO2 levels aren’t operating on theory, but rather just wishful thinking. Good luck. And with this, I permanently conclude my remarks to you in this discussion.

          • Nick

            Steam engines (and other engines) are analyzed by thermodynamic cycles – not phlogiston.

          • sirgareth

            Thermodynamics was in its infancy 150 years after phlogiston theory was working very well for the planet. It could inform one how much energy one could get from boilers based upon the phlogiston content of various fuels.

            Phlogiston theory worked very well; it wasn’t junk science like man-made climate change whose theories have always demonstrably failed.

            I don’t think you understand at all, do you actually think that quantum theory is “finally correct” or even converging on “the truth?”

          • Nick

            ok, didn’t see this comment until just now; I don’t think that phlogiston theory has anything on modern thermodynamic theory; I studied thermodynamics in engineering school, and we didn’t dwell on phlogiston, ; that notion has been supplanted by far better theory; and with this, I really do conclude

            Please state a Fact about the actual Temperature of THE EARTH cooling or warming in anything but a cyclical fashion since the creation of earth! That is scientific “Climate Change” boodrow

            What pulled us out of the last Ice age??? Oh I would guess more Ice?>NOT How many Ice ages have we had since the creation??? Get over the BS and try to reason with some facts not THEORY from people that are directly being paid to find climate change – Self fulfilling jobs! Oh and scientist are the ones being PAID!

            Ozone is likely the most misunderstood thing surrounding this silly climate argument. Yes there IS a huge hole in the ozone layer and it happens every night (and has since our planet had oxygen in the upper atmosphere).

            The misunderstanding comes in the radical nature of O3. It’s unstable and rarely exists beyond a few seconds before the extra oxygen atom is released, returning the molecule to O2. Knowing this it is unavoidable that ozone will be lost regardless of what mankind does to help or hinder it.

            The attention must turn to how ozone is created in the upper atmosphere, since the creation rate must exceed the loss rate to have any ozone concentration at all.

            Ozone is created by bombarding O2 with UV rays which breaks the molecule up into 2 free radical oxygen ions. The loose oxygens end up finding a very short lived home attached to a nearby O2 molecule, making it O3.

            So it isn’t O3 that protects us from UV light, it’s simple O2 that is driven to become O3 by the complete consumption of a UV photon. Therefore ozone in the atmosphere is a product of the UV light and oxygen.

            As long as there is oxygen in our atmosphere, and a star belching UV at us, there will be plenty of ozone. This is how God rolls. After all He’s the engineer who made our skin automatically convert UV light into a self-protection from …. UV light. Genius!

            Almost like a negative feedback loop, as is the fact that when there is increased CO2 in the air more plants grow more quickly.

          • sirgareth

            The truth is that positive feedback loops are rare and always catastrophic. Light a match when you smell gas and you might discover a real positive feedback loop.

            They don’t occur in nature because all of these loops have already run their courses and left us the stable hunk of rocks and dirt we live on,.

            Striking a match creates a small positive feedback loop. After the the feedback loop has run its course, striking the match again will never burn you.

            It never got traction with the left. For one thing, it wasn’t a hole but a thinning of the atmosphere over the poles and had been going on forever. Just not sexy enough to sell, so Gore moved on to something that was shinier. If you want to have fun with your lefty friends (or family), offer $20 to anyone who can name Gore’s first climatic disaster vehicle (i.e. ozone hole). You will NEVER have to pay out.

          I remember that BS too. It was the same NASA rocket scientist who now is funded by none other than George Soros, James Hansen, who invented the hockey stick theory to explain the coming Ice Age back then and when that balloon didn’t fly used this same failed theory to scare us about global warming. And Al Gore has been making millions from it and the crooked Franklin Raines who enriched himself cooking the books at Fannie Mae also stands to make a fortune from this lie because he owns the patent on the idea of Carbon Credits which steals money from consumers to give to carbon credit traders. Is it any wonder thinking people are tired of this BS and elected Donald Trump?

          Because “There was no scientific consensus in the 1970s that the Earth was headed into an imminent ice age. Indeed, the possibility of anthropogenic warming dominated the peer-reviewed literature even then.” A review of all peer reviewed scientific literature on climate change from the 70’s can be found here.

          Given that this nonsense of anthropomorphic climate change was really just a smokescreen for their real objective, a one world government enslaving everyone for benefit of a relatively few, self-anointed “elites,” then yes, they are loons for thinking we would willingly swallow their codswallop without real proof, which they cannot produce.

          There have been many ice ages. If you do not know this, go learn something. I am not sure what you are reading about “murmurs,” but you, sir, should be embarrassed. You probably believe that the Earth is 6000 years old, as do your friends. If you do not believe that, then congratulations. Zero population growth is a means to prevent the raping of resources in communities where resources are scarce. If you do not understand, yet, how land in Africa is drying up at exponential proportions, and historical man-made drought in China from so much pollution is preventing rain, and causing their rivers to dry up….the please google it and learn something. Your ignorance is obvious and should be embarrassing to you.

            Why is this always happening far away?
            Perhaps it is because of their local practices and poor management.
            Like the snow in the Himalayan mtns that decreased after they cut down all the trees in the 19th century . . . today with reforestation the snows are returning.
            China is a cesspool of pollution and disregard of nature, especially where they MINE Rare Earth Minerals for windmills, batteries and solar panels. Thousands of square miles of devastation and destruction. Rivers, lakes and communities destroyed as well as the health of workers.

        Actually per NASA – the Icebergs are growing… The Greenhouse theory on Climate Change is so outdated bs from the 60s… We now know that Climate Change had a plethora of variables like Solar Flares, Sun Activity, the Changing of of Axis affecting Earth’s Electromagnetic layering systems… And Electromagnetic layering systems themselves in constant change which has very little to do w Human Behavior… Fact Most Astrophysicists do NOT think that Humans cause Climate Change because there is absolutely no scientific proof of this… Only people ignorantly assuming the Green House Model is Fact which it isn’t….

      • Joe Perrino

        As for Global Warming, it is nothing more than more lies and deception from the left. You would think that we live in a time of reason but the Global Warming alarm is dressed up as science, yet it isn’t science. It’s propaganda. There is no evidence that 20th century global warming is linked to anthropomorphic greenhouse gases. The left has made it a defining moral and political cause in our age. Any criticism, no matter how scientifically rigorous, is considered illegitimate. Worse, you are quickly labeled a flat earthier and guilty of climate genocide. Any politician disagreeing with the radical environmentalist commits political suicide The truth is that the world’s climate is always changing and there is nothing unusual about our current temperature, and there is no scientific evidence that today’s temperature is driven by CO2 or man made, despite being told that it’s been proven beyond a doubt. Not one of the large climate changes in the past 1,000 years can be explained by CO2. The ice cores show that. There have been times when CO2 was 3-10 times higher. CO2 does not drive temperature. As for the IPCC, it like every UN panel is political. The vast number of names they boast as their support are not only non scientists, but many resigned out of disagreement about GW. The UN did not remove their names. Bottom line, there are many scientist that disagree with man made GW. Patrick Moore, co-founder of Green Peace calls it a political activist movement. Not environmental. It’s all about money. Hundreds of thousands of jobs depend on GW now. Its become a big business. You want funding? Then tie your project, research what ever to GW. Money will flow. Disagree and you will starve. Like the evolutionist, the global warming alarmist use censorship and intimidation to push their agenda. These tactics should be obvious to people. Developing countries like Africa are not allowed to develop despite having large quantities of natural resources availiable. The global warming crowd force them to use expensive energy producing methods such as solar panels so that their hospitals can not properly take care of their patients. People are dying as we speak because of this lie. Cheap availiable energy is the main reason for the increase and quality of earth’s population in the 1900’s. So what do we know? The earth’s climate has always been changing. In the past, there have been colder and warmer periods than today. This current warming period is about 200 years old and is coming out of the Little Ice Age of the 1450’s to 1850’s. Pictures show the river Thames frozen over. Before that was the Medieval Warm Period between 1000 and 1400. Temperatures then were higher than today. That has always been given as the reason for the great cathedrals built during these times. Man had a longer growing season which translated into more food. People thrived during this warm period. Chaucer mentioned vineyards in northern England. Areas that vineyards can not grow today because it is too cool !!!! The period before that was even warmer. The polar bears obviously survived that time. So why the hysteria over temperatures today? Follow the money. As for warming in this past century, 75% occurred before 1940. Before the great industrial boom. After 1940 instead of shooting up because of increased industrialization, it dropped for 40 years. When I was a kid, the NYT was warning of an imminent ice age. So, the facts actually did not and has not fit the theory that man made CO2 causes global warming. In fact CO2 is only 0.054% of the gases in our atmosphere. As for green house gases, water vapor makes up 95% of all green house gases. Everything else is insignificant. So if warming is due to green house gases, we should see more warming in the middle of the Troposphere than at the surface. That is how green house warming theoretically should work. 6 miles up should experience the most warming. All models predict that. But that is not what is happening. Warming is occurring at the surface more than at 6 miles up. That would suggest that the warming is not due to greenhouse warming. Every recent ice core survey now reveals the same result. CO2 LAGS behind temperature increase by 800 years. It does not drive temperature as the alarmist would like us to believe. In fact temperature increase causes CO2 to increase. CO2 follows temperature. This is astounding news but as with evolution, the facts and truth are suppressed by the powers to be. The very fundamental assumption of climate change is therefore wrong. CO2 is not a pollutant, nor are we the major source of CO2. Volcanoes produce far more CO2 than man and and more still from animals, bacteria and dying vegetation. But the biggest source of CO2 are the oceans. They act as a reservoir for CO2. The lag period is because oceans are so large and take a long time to heat up. As the earth gets warmer, the oceans then heat up and then the start releasing CO2. So if it is not CO2, what does cause warming. Strange as it may be, it is that massive thing in the sky. The Sun. The most accurate weather forecasters have been those who study the Sun. Namely, the Sun Spots, which are intense magnetic fields. Actually weather forecasters in centuries past knew that increased Sun Spots meant warmer weather ahead. During the Little Ice Age there was very little solar activity. Very few Sun Spots. Hence the colder weather. We have had some 15 years of less solar activity lately. That is the reason for recent cooler weather since 1998. In fact solar activity has been found to be intimately linked to temperature over the past 400 years. Increase solar activity translates into increase temperature. In conclusion, solar activity not CO2 is driving the weather. On top of that we have know that the Sun influences weather both directly and indirectly. We know that cosmic rays help produce clouds when they hit water droplets that then produce clouds. If the Sun’s activity is high, solar wind will push these cosmic rays away, thus less clouds will form, therefore the earth will become warmer because there are less clouds. Less solar activity, more clouds will form and clouds have a cooling effect. Temperature and cosmic rays have an inverse relationship.

        Oh yes. I’ll be copying and pasting this one. Thank you MAGAnum.

        Finally it’s been pinned down to the 1920’s and I think I have the answer. It was those d^mned roaring twenties “Flappers”. Of course we’ve been told that ‘ladies’ don’t have flatulence. But the reality is, those 20’s girls ate a LOT of asparagus and boiled eggs and when you combine that with bathtub gin, ‘you got’ flatulence. So imagine this . . . there they all are . . out doing the “Charleston” . . swinging those thin skirts hither and yon and the ‘flatulence’ builds up and VOILA! . . . . you got it. GAS. And we all know “gas” is just another pollutant and pollutants up and down the eastern seaboard migrated over to all those countries who are leading the pack with pollution. Here they are listed. The world’s most terrible polluters:

        The countries that are presented here are ranked on the basis of the average PM2.5 pollution.

        Bahrain – 57 ug/m3. …

        India – 59 ug/m3. …

        United Arab Emirates – 61ug/m3. …

        Mongolia – 64 ug/m3. …

        Egypt – 74 ug/m3. …

        Iran – 76 ug/m3. …

        Bangladesh – 79 ug/m3. …

        Afghanistan – 84 ug/m3.

        …..coming in at Number 1….. Pakistan 101/ug/m3

        BUT Al Gore wants me to buy an electric lawn mower. uh huh . . . not going to happen.

        You understand, of course, that the earth is comprised of a north AND southern hemisphere, and like all other natural elements over which physics has a say, for every action you site (all northern hemisphere) there has been an equal and opposite reaction in the southern hemisphere; ergo, maybe ice cap north gets smaller (debateable) while the southern ice cap increases to historically large proportions. Then there’s the “we’re all gonna die” crowd yapping about the polar bears’ demise, when all evidence points to increased populations. GREAT PICK, Mr. Pres-elect.

      • Docjoe54

        In the early 70’s, I, too, was a bone-headed mark for the environmental movement. There were books like The Population Bomb, Famine 1975, and publications vacillating between global cooling and global warming. Hydrofluorocarbons in spray on deodorants were going to destroy the ozone layer, but we had to stop producing ozone or it would have other dire consequences.
        All the predictions eventually proved to be pure B.S.
        I then came across a chapter in an ecology book (I believe it was published by Mother Earth News) which argued that in order to create a more sociology just political system, we had to make environmentalism a religion. The argument was to toss out the idea of worshipping God and instead worship the planet for the purpose of implementing Marxist ideals. In retrospect, it was a clear indication of the direction of where the movement was heading.
        This is in stark contrast to wanting just clean air and pure water; the environmentalists are using their pseudosciences as a Trojan Horse for socialists/communist agendas.
        Even the founder of Green Peace has abandoned the environmental movement as it has transmogrified, or more specifically, been hijacked by fanatics who are focused more on political change than a clean environment.
        I must emphasize that this is not a conspiracy theory on my part, but clear observations on what has been happening for nearly a half century.
        As far as the environmentalists are concerned, no policy is good enough. Drilling and fracking ruin the earth. Windmills kill birds. Even wood-burning fireplaces (which have been around before the invention of the wheel) are even banned in some cities.
        Hollywood stars can burn more fuel in a private jet in one weekend than most of us do in a lifetime, so they can galavant about the globe preaching about sustainable energy.
        THEY are allowed to live in luxury, but the rest of us should starve and freeze in the dark.

        John, one must presume you’ve calculated the correct ambient temperature for Earth’s atmosphere; that you fully understand Earth’s geological record; and that you know what it’s going to take to stop Earth’s climate from changing.

        Truthfully, you and people like you are seeking pariah status, and getting there quickly. The earth’s climate has changed constantly for billions of years. The concept, that the sequestration of a trace of a benevolent gas, will prevent “negative” climate change is absurd. The concept of defining financial winners (crisis pushers, political class, corporatists, and the aligned) and losers (the poor, productive classes, upstarts, consumers) by government force, will stop climate change, is among the greatest frauds of all time.

        Wake up, John, otherwise the most your going to do is continue to co-opt worthy environmental goals for a notorious scam.

        And yes, about 1/2 of Americans are rather gullible (one might even say stupid), just not the 1/2 you’re indicating

        • VendicarDecarian0

          Here is a graph of the lat 11,000 years.

          Note the rapid spike of temperatures over the last 150 years. Unprecidented over the history shown.

          The Earth is now warmer than it has been for the last 120,000 years.

          “And yes, about 1/2 of Americans are rather gullible (one might even say stupid)” – Jaybird

        And it’s the CAGW crowd that specializes in cherry-picking time periods. “Let’s scare them with a graph and count on the fact that most americans didn’t pay attention in science and math, so the majority will believe anything we say if we just keep screaming! We don’t have to say it’s only 120 years we’re talking about and there’s no baseline data to hold us accountable. Those idiots will never know the difference!”

        Nice try. Hopefully these useless and economically harmful regulations can be rolled back about 30 years. Have a nice fit.

    Pollution follows the 80/20 rule. To get rid of the first 80% is fairly easy and not costly but the remaining 20 % will cost you 80% of the total bill to remove it. That last 20% is just not cost effective to reduce it

  • Beaver Eater

  • EmeraldAl

    The EPA had a purpose but now only exists to create reasons for it’s existence. At the expense of everyone else and the planet. If they cared about pollution, how does shutting down industry so that the only players left are in countries that do not give any concern to the environment?

    • TheApana

      It’s used as the left’s Gestapo to infringe and destroy property rights, lead to imposing a breathing tax (carbon tax), and destroy small businesses/farms with asinine regulations.

    Tucker Carlson just destroyed a Democrat California congresswoman who was spouting a lot of uber-leftist talking points about the EPA nominee but could not come up with anything specific and could not demonstrate any scientific knowledge of the topic. Democrats hated George W. Bush for eight years (and perhaps still do) and tried for his entire presidency to trivialize and delegitimize him. I would expect them to continue their politics of personal destruction against Donald Trump and anyone whom he appoints to his administration. Just label Democrats the DISLOYAL opposition.

          Oh yes I can. Bush…war with Iraq WMDs. Iraq had nothing to do with 911. This war was to eliminate Sadaam Hussein who was standing in the way of the New World Order. Same with Assad.

God works in mysterious ways as does Mother nature. To me, the canary in the coal mine will be when the Maldives are under water, and that hasn’t happened yet. lol.

  • Conservative Not Republican

    Regarding anything which Trump does that sends liberals into apoplectic seizures, I’m reasonably confident that I will agree with 99% of those actions. I certainly like his pick for the head of the EPA. Personally, I would like to see the EPA done away with all together, as it is completely unconstitutional, but for the moment, this will do.

    Perhaps now, the EPA won’t designate a rain puddle in someone’s backyard as a “wetland”.

    This is like a dream come true…. A president who gets it.

    He calls terrorists, terrorists.

    He’s going to build a wall and command homeland to actually stop illegal immigration versus being an UBER service from the border to wherever they want to go.

    He just put a AGW skeptic in charge of the EPA and will trash any agreements President FecaI Midas put us in coupled with a machete to all these ridiculous regulations.

    He will gut the federal government payrolls.

    He will smack the IRS upside their well deserved heads.

    The Department of Indoctrination (education) is in for a rude awakening.

    Now if he will just withdraw us from the UN and kick them out I stand ready to call him the best president ever!

    Truth: Intelligent, rational, scientically supported non political educated person to head EPA.

  • Billion003

    I can tolerate the global warming point of view if it serves as a broader proxy for energy efficiency. Those that supplied Gore with doomsday “research” about a decade ago have been proven extraordinarily wrong. Of course, we know the broader agenda had nothing to do with global warming or climate change (or whatever doomsday idea they’re now claiming – it was always scam) But all things being equal why not use less energy in all forms of generation?
    I use various high efficiency light bulbs because I’ll pay less at the end of the month. I keep my heat down a bit because its just not that big a deal to do it. I keep more money in my pocket. My stance is “Eco” in that it is “Econ” – ECONomical.

    • Ghostmaker

      If you want economical electricity generation then you must use nuclear power. Like France has.

      • Billion003

        Personally, I’m not big on nuclear. But it is what it is. What I am for is increased efficiency overall. I think there are worlds of potential savings if real effort was put into efficiency and conservation.

  • larry weitzman

    I know a Scott Pruitt, he is a world champion race car driver and nothing would be sweeter to see the other Scott Pruitt dismantle the EPA as if he were Scott Pruitt the race car driver, lightning quick.

  • Engineer IKB

    First this chicken-little climate stuff was called “Global Warming”

    That did not work out, so now they call it “Climate Change.”

    As if the climate has ever been static.

    And this whole worry is based upon going from 300 parts-per-million to 400 parts-per-million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That is a change of only one part in ten thousand parts !

    This is proportionally equivalent to one day out of 27 years, or to ten cents out of a thousand dollars ! ! !

    This is a very, very, very tiny change in a climate system of many, many, many factors, most of which we cannot measure very accurately, and some of which we do not even know about.

    And IF the climate was as sensitive to this one part in ten thousand as the worriers claim, it would have been bouncing around all over the place in the record of history and of pre-history.

    But it hasn’t bounced around like that.

    This whole climate panic is ridiculous on the face of it.

    • • • •

    And:

    There ARE NO climate scientists.

    Science requires repeatable experiments with unchanged controls.

    There is only one climate, and you cannot do a repeatable experiment with a separate control on something unique.

    Even doing sequential experiments changes what you are working on.

    All the stuff masquerading as climate “science” is speculation done on incomplete, inaccurate computer models, being fed guessed parameters the accuracy of which no-one knows.

    • Annie Bodyhomenow

      I agree with what you say. I would like to add; if something needs to be done to help our planet, it should start in China (from the article: ‘All of the U.S. annual emissions in 2025 will be offset by three weeks of Chinese emissions. Three weeks!’) and India.

      These are also the places that have no child labor laws, which undercuts our workforce. If they didn’t have the children working, the workforce in their countries would shrink and they would have to pay more to adults. Their products would not be as tempting a bargain when their prices subsequently rise, making shoppers look at the quality again in American products.

      • John from Oz

        No problem. Sometimes a good man wants to work himself out of a job and I suspect Mr Pruitt would be extremely satisfied if that did happen. And if he did work himself out of the job Mr Trump will have plenty more opportunities for a man of his talent. His skills as a Swamp Drainer, honed in the EPA ,will set him apart for much bigger things in the future.

        • Red-Pilled Conservative

          I suspect that Finbar means the bureaucrat would be fired after undoing the regs, not Pruitt.

      And why did these compassionate planet lovers do this? For the children? No, because those tiny little life-savers could put a hole in the ozone — never mind that all of the inhalers ever used in all of mankind COMBINED don’t amount to the same “greenhouse gases” created by a SINGLE trip to an environmental confab on one of Algore’s planes.

      Regressives put the interests of environmentalist kooks above the health of “the children.”

    Not to mention the “data” itself which keeps not fitting the “models” over and over and over again year after year, also proven FALSE.

    It is encouraging that Trump has chosen a skeptic to head the EPA. The progressive left cottons no debate, no skepticism about climate change. They forget that all scientific knowledge is tentative and provisional, and nothing is final. Science is not a closed system. The “conclusion” that debate is closed on the question of human causation of climate change, and that there can be no rational skepticism, is emotional, not scientific.

    In 1982 at the height of his supposed ‘fame,’ insufferable ‘actor’ Ted Danson appeared in a ‘Global Warming’ PSA. Finger wagging, Danson admonished viewers that, quote, “Boston and New York City wouldbe under water in ten years unless we ‘did something’ about Global Warming.”

    1992 came and went. 2002 and 2012 did, too, with Boston and New York still high and dry. Good thing: We’d have missed a bunch of Red Sox championships.

    In the midst of all this, Danson and his equally insufferable activist wife Mary Steenbergen built a gigantic millionaire’s mansion behind huge gates (as elite Libs often do) on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Why does this matter? Well, Martha’s Vineyard would have been first to be swallowed up by the ocean had Danson’s 1982 prognostication come true. But they built there anyway.

    So one of two things must have been true: Global warming was a problem and we fixed it, or it never was a problem to begin with.

    And the epilogue is this: A few months ago Obama made the same dire prognostication Danson did. You don’t need to be reminded what the definition of ‘insanity’ is, do you?

  • taxpqayer1

    Just one of many reasons I have supported Trump for some time. He came to our little corner of the world this summer when the Progressives in Seattle blocked him from holding a rally in their area so Trump came to Lynden Washington and gave the rally at the fair grounds. I knew I was going to keep supporting Trump but went mainly to see who would show up at the rally. I was so pleased to see the crowd seem to be the same mixed that came to the grandstand shows at the fair. Young and old, male and females, mixed races, children too and all so well behaved. A small group of nasty and loud loons outside mostly from Seattle. I was so hearten to see with my own eyes who Trump supporters really are. And knew despite the heavy attacks from the main stream press that Trump really had a chance. Though I had already made up mind to support Trump I will guess that some that went made their decision to vote for him while looking at the people surrounding them. Some, in the main stream news, made a big point that well attended a rally meant little in elections, Romney was mentioned often as that example, but Trump may have won the election because of his rally’s. People went by the thousands and saw the other attendees as people like themselves not the “deplorables” as they were so often cast as. Just to add i have watch of his “thank you tour” shown on Lou Dobbs for example. Now I really have hope for our country’s future.

    There’s no global weather tax that’s going to enable man to control the weather.

  • joeysdad

    We have had decades of liberal leadership to deal with the problem, but their only solution is higher taxes and centralized power which does no good except make the elites richer. Its time to move on.

    And how much taxpayer $$$$$ have been spent on fraudulent studies?

    • Larry Gibb

      Enough to have many so called “scientists” living high on the hog.

  • Larry Gibb

    Cancelling the huge Air Force One with 8 billion dollar price tag should make the greenies happy.

    Hey all you UN Officials what’s that running down your leg, are you melting?

    People that can review unaltered temperature and pressure data and conclude there is no global warming are not skeptics. We are rational.

    the left should be bleeding from their ears soon

  • AbsolutelyRight

    President Trump knows he can’t build his historic wall with the fanatical lunatics at the current EPA in the way.

    This is fantastic news for people of true science everywhere!

  • Gregson14

    The sound that you hear… is “the Left” collectively tearing out their hair and rending their clothes!…

    • Larry Gibb

      Well I think the other sound is Trumps “deportation” position losing air, from what I am reading.

  • Eric Meckes

    That’s great news, old Al just lost his pension, but what about Rahm Deadfish Emanuel? Why was he giving input today at Trump plaza?, and I just saw where Trump is doing the Chris Christie talking about what chums he and Obama have become, like 30 or so conversations they’ve had and saying what a great guy Obama is? “He’s a really nice wonderful smart guy and really loves this country” Those words came out of Trumps mouth and I wanted to puke.

    Gore is a crazy loon, why even meet with him.

    • Larry Gibb

      Similar hair?

  • Kevind0824

    Rest assured patriots. Remember Trump is a masterful manipulator.

  • vando1

    globalism is dead. climate change was the mantra of globalists.

    • hammerstamp

      Yeah, ‘climate change’ was intended to be their cash cow.

  • OldOllie

    There is no context in which “hide the decline” can be construed to mean anything except “falsify the data.” Global warming is nothing but a leftist hoax that they can use to boss people around and take their stuff.

    • vando1

      a bit more than a hoax, more like a conspiracy in the end.

      • OldOllie

        Actually, it’s more like an industry.

        • Paul Kersey

          A conspiracy-industry to siphon $ $ $ $ from America to less wealthy countries – penalizing / taxing success thereby stifling industrial progress and reducing the standard of living of the more successful country. There ya go !

  • J Lo

    There are places in the governments dark corners where radicals and communists have gathered a toe hold and have been allowed to operate with impunity. The EPA is one of those, the Department of Education and The Labor Department are a couple of others. In order to drain the swamp – or a significant part of it, we need to expose these dark corners and discard the radicals who dwell there. This announcement is a good first step – however, much, much, more to do.

  • Bill Sims

    Trump told Gore, “I will give you a chance to say you were wrong” If Gore doesn’t Trump is going to tear into him like a pit bull on crack.

  • MadamSmith

    UN official Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III, admitted what’s behind the climate issue: “One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy … One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”

    Nothing more needs to be said!

  • Rick

    Pruitt has been a great attorney general for Oklahoma. He has been battling stupid EPA regs for years, like their demand that we reduce emissions at coal fired plants because there was too much dust in the air during the West Texas drought. Congrats Scott.

  • Carol J

    Donald J. Trump is a genius!!!

  • Northstar

    Here’s my message to the idiot Sky is falling Dem Prog.. You have been “CONDITIONED” from childhood to “FEAR” dirt, dust and noise. Because the masters of the Dem Prog human and business shake down Mafia could make money from it. Because of that you have become denutted males and mentally sexually confused women. Who honestly with purple and pink hair look like human freaks. Time to grow up. You want a “good” environment to live in. Stop being the lazy azzes and bend your OWS and Indian encampment or BLM march azz over and pick up your garbage. Man and the advancement of man will always create noise, dust dirt. How do you think we advanced from a cave. Now grow a set of balls men be men and women learn to love to be women. Unprogram the garbage they have brainwashed you with. We have so much country (land) and untapped and potential resources in this nation. Your generation should be the most prosperous. But letting the few who brainwashed you, to running a shake down criminal enterprise out of “weather” you will wallow in Govt slavery and poverty. Again wake up and take some dam pride in yourself and your nation..

    Finally we will be rid of that radical climate extremist Obama appointed and bring back sanity to the job.
