'I think global warming is real. I don’t think that’s deniable. And I do think human activity contributes to it.'
The U.S. 'can’t be acting unilaterally' especially 'when folks in China are doing things to the environment that we would never be done in our country …There’s no use in denying global warming exists. The question is what we do to deal with it.' Christie also expressed skepticism about cap and trade programs.
Warmist warns: 'On the issue of climate change, we now face a choice of three sorts of politicians: deniers, panderers, and leaders. Given the extremely narrow window for climate action, the only kind of politicians we can now afford in high office are climate leaders...with Democrats being panderers and Republicans deniers (though with a growing set of panderers among the new breed of [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie Republicans)'
Moore: 'You, Mother Nature, with all your horrific damage, death and destruction you caused last week, you became, ironically, the undoing of a Party that didn't believe in you or your climate changing powers,' Moore wrote, referring to Hurricane Sandy. 'Thank you Gov. Christie for your new bromance with Obama. You know, you really didn't have to!'
Last week, media outlets across the globe claimed that there has been rain for the first time at the Greenland summit. “Rain fell at the normally snowy summit of Greenland for the first time on record,” read CNN’s headlines. Others went a step further and declared it a sign of climate doomsday. “Rain On Greenland Ice Sheet, Possibly A First, Signals Climate Change Risk,” read another headline. Unfortunately, for the mainstream media, climate history nearly always comes back to haunt their claims of unprecedented events. Records reveal that this is not the first rainfall in Greenland, and certainly not the first on the Greenland summit peak, which stands at around 10,000 feet.
NY Post: Ponder this rhetorical question, posed by a columnist at The Hill: “Could climate change finally expose China as a global outlaw?” So it wasn’t the concentration camps that did it. Or the ethnic cleansing. Or the slave labor. Or the decades of collectivist-induced economic misery and authoritarian control. Or the state censorship. It was Beijing’s violations of the Paris Accord.
Indeed, certain pundits have been openly envious of the ability of Chinese Communists to compel their citizens to adopt carbon-mitigation policies. The commissars must be such a disappointment to them.
OSI Arctic sea ice minimum since 2012 ftp://osisaf.met.no/prod_test/ice/index/v2p1/nh/osisaf_nh_sie_daily.txt
September minimum trend has contradicted Al Gore’s predictions of an ice free Arctic. Whether sea ice has turned the corner and will start a recovery still remains to be seen. One thing is certain: The predictions of an ice-free Arctic soon made a decade ago were flat out wrong.
