Tomkiewicz: 'These [Hitler] 'deniers' might as well have been called skeptics in their day...I could not and would not 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of my family and deprived me of my childhood'
Climate Depot Response: 'Your skeptic/Holocaust denier comparisons do 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of your family.' You are not exempt from being offensive due to your horrible suffering'
'Denmark, an early adopter of the global-warming mania, now requires its households to pay the developed world's highest power prices — about 40¢ a kilowatt hour, or three to four times what North Americans pay today. Germany, whose powerhouse economy gave green developers a blank cheque, is a close second, followed by other politically correct nations such as Belgium, the headquarters of the EU, and distressed nations such as Spain'
'No one —scientist or otherwise — has yet come up with the definitive explanation of first life forms on earth. There is no conclusive bridge between self-replicating molecules capable of mutation (a definition of life) and primordial, lifeless, dimly-lit planet Earth of some 3 billion years ago. So even most erudite thinkers must resort to aliens, life-bearing comets, God — or, in my case, beats-the-heck-out-of-me'
'...although they have this theory which isn't panning out the way they thought it would. Great. So much for the value of consensus huh? To his credit, at least, Lovelock admits to the mistake. Would that the rest of the alarmists had that sort of integrity. Instead, many choose to double down and make themselves even less credible'
'Mann begins his account by re-cycling his original outright lie that we had asked him for an 'excel spreadsheet...Mann brazenly repeated his earlier lie to the Penn State Investigation Committee. Needless to say, the 'Investigation' Committee didn't actually investigate the lie by crosschecking evidence, but accepted Mann's testimony as ending the matter. In the book, instead of leaving well enough alone, Mann once again re-iterated the lie'
'THE GREAT RAINFOREST HEIST': Green groups 'actively promote industrially logging Earth's last old forests. Through their support of the existing 'Forest Stewardship Council' (FSC), and/or planned compromised 'Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation' (REDD), they are at the forefront of destroying ancient forests for disposable consumer items – claiming it is 'sustainable forest management' and 'carbon forestry'
'Analysis notes 7 other publications have found global sea level rise from tide gauges to be significantly less, from 1.2 to 1.9 mm/yr, and mentions the Holgate 2007 paper which found sea level rise decelerated over the 20th century'
From 80,000 to 12,000 years ago, when CO2 concentrations lingered near or below 200 ppm, many new or recent studies suggest that when directly comparing region to region, it was as much as 6°C warmer than today even during this ice age period. This has prompted some scientists to “exclude atmospheric pCO2 as a direct driver of SST [sea surface temperature] variations”.
Sean Sublette, a meteorologist at Climate Central, who pointed out that the 1960s through 2010s saw between one and three storms each decade before the June 1 start date on average. It might be tempting to ascribe this earlier season entirely to climate change warming the Atlantic. But technology also has a role to play, with more observations along the coast as well as satellites that can spot storms far out to sea.
“I would caution that we can’t just go, ‘hah, the planet’s warming, we’ve had to move the entire season!’” Sublette said. “I don’t think there’s solid ground for attribution of how much of one there is over the other. Weather folks can sit around and debate that for awhile.” Earlier storms don’t necessarily mean more harmful ones, either.
