In support of his position, Graham argued that Republicans need to appeal to young people who support the climate scare. Marc Morano, the publisher of the influential Washington DC-based Climatedepot.com, responded, “I can’t imagine that any millennial who cares about this is going to be voting Republican because they are activists at their core. If you’re a millennial and you’re skipping school and all excited about the Green New Deal (GND), there is no way Republicans can appeal to them with some sort of lite version of the GND.”
“You don't capitulate to young voters because they have been brainwashed into believing that mankind is driving a climate 'crisis,'” said Morano. “You lead and reveal to them that what they think they know just ain't so.”
Morano explains why so many Republican support climate alarmism: “They just don’t want to be seen as ‘evil deniers’ and they are prepared to give in wherever they can. They want to have less toxicity in the media, in town halls, in social circles around the Washington establishment. By supporting the climate scare, they’re going to be better liked, less embarrassed by their positions and can say, ‘you can’t call us deniers anymore!’ That gives them a level of comfort at parties, campaign events, speeches and town halls.”
Clearly, what is now urgently needed is for the Trump administration to go ahead with the President’s Commission on Climate Security. Then there would be an alternative federal climate change report with the seal of the U.S. government on it. Morano summed up, “We’ve never had a challenge to the UN from an official source. A Presidential Commission report would be the first one ever. Let’s just hope that it goes through.”
Futurism: And, of course, it all connects to climate change. “If you have all of this going on when you’re right near the waterline, in some cases in San Francisco, then you have to worry about big storms that sea level comes up and inundation more frequently,” Parsons told NBC. Parsons also says he’ll be studying Manhattan next, according to NBC, to further study the effects of sinking on coastal cities in light of rising sea levels.
CNN: The Arctic Ocean has been warming since the onset of the 20th century, decades earlier than instrument observations would suggest, according to new research. The study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, found that the expansion of warm Atlantic Ocean water flowing into the Arctic, a phenomenon known as "Atlantification," has caused Arctic water temperature in the region studiedtoincrease by around 2 degrees Celsius since 1900.
Francesco Muschitiello, an author on the study and assistant professor of geography at the University of Cambridge, said the findings were worrisome because the early warming suggests there might be a flaw in the models scientists use to predict how the climate will change. "The reconstructions suggest a substantial increase in the Atlantic Ocean heat and salt transport into the Nordic Sea at the beginning of the 20th century, which is not well simulated by (climate models)," Rong Zhang, a senior scientist at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, who was not involved with the study, told CNN. "It's important to understand the cause of this rapid Atlantification, as well as the discrepancies between the model simulations and the reconstructions."
Scott Adams: "Fake News Play of the Year: CNN posts an article that debunks human-caused climate change (or at least the models), so they do it on Thanksgiving so no one notices and give it a misleading framing to conceal it."
