Morano: 'With Obama now invoking God, this report is a serious threat...Governments cannot control weather and climate...but the report implies we can control the weather. At the same time it wants to control the economy. It's as though the World Economic Forum report looked at Obama's green stimulus and instead of seeing a fiasco -- which it was -- they looked at it and said wow, how can we expand this globally'
World Economic Forum: 'Only a sustained and dramatic shift to infrastructure and industrial practices using low-carbon technology can save the world and its economy from devastating global warming' -- 'The extra spending amounts to roughly $700bn a year until 2030'
Support more 'subsidies' for solar industry or you hate your grandchildren! 'Mann appeared at news conference organized by a state representative, Greg Vitali, to promote two bills that would provide subsidies for solar installations and increase the amount of electricity that the state's electric power utilities must generate from renewable sources of energy'
Worse, they said Obama's focus on 'green jobs' was a failure that went to companies like Solyndra instead of new technologies. ''That outcome,' said MIT, 'was an entirely unnecessary black eye for the clean-energy effort.' It slammed Obama for searching for shovel ready green jobs, adding that 'the rush to fund energy projects meand that the choices made were not always wise'
'The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform released a new report of 'over 150 emails that contradict statements by the President, Secretary Chu, and White House and DOE officials.' The emails reveal a series of questionable practices, including coercion, cronyism and, cover ups.'
Obama pledged in 2011 to put 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2015...pumped roughly $5 billion into electric vehicle industry. Sales are underwhelming despite the efforts, barely reaching 5% of target...Obama subtly moved the goal posts & declared success. 'By 2015, U.S. will be able to produce enough batteries and components to support one million plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles'
Paul Homewood: "It is absolutely clear that the number of strong tornadoes has declined since the 1970s. Alarmingly, however, this page has been 'disappeared', and the link now comes up with this:
Fortunately Wayback still has a copy of the original web page, and I also have it on file. It is blindingly apparent that NOAA found their original assessment far too inconvenient, something that should be kept out of the public domain at all cost."
Climate chauses wind speeds to decrease...Except when climate change causes wind speeds to increase...
Claim: Atmosphere expert Professor Paul Williams, of the University of Reading, told the Financial Times that winds have ‘generally weakened over land over the past few decades’. He said one explanation for plummeting wind speeds could be ‘human-related climate change’, that would see poles warming ‘faster than tropics in lower atmosphere’ areas. Prof Williams said: ‘This would have the effect of weakening the mid-latitude north-south temperature difference and consequently reducing the thermal wind at low altitudes.’
