Climate Depot response: 'We are still scratching our heads as to why Newt refers to Pelosi ad as some kind of 'debate' that was 'misconstrued'. Mr. Gingrich, please just admit your whopper of a mistake and stop trying to spin your embarrassing behavior'
Listen Now: (Begins at 18:50) Morano: 'Gingrich is spinning and spinning very badly. It is quite shocking to see how poor he is handling this. Newt not only gave aid and comfort to the enemy, he was the enemy! Newt praised Kerry, one of the most laughable U.S. Senators when it comes to AGW. Kerry is an embarrassment when it comes to the science'
Morano: 'Newt calculated AGW would sell to the GOP & that is the most stunning & misguided interpretation of modern politics, science and economics. That is an epic fail...I guess sitting on a love seat with Pelosi is a 'debate' to Newt if you look at way he 'debated' Sen. Kerry -- by preemptively conceding the entire debate in his opening remarks. A debate to Newt is capitulation to your opponent & that is very, very scary'
Update: Gingrich on radio (Begins at 14:20): 'I am for incentives for bio-fuels such as ethanol which have a much lower impact on the environment'
Climate Depot Response: 'Wrong again, Mr. Gingrich. You never once uttered the word 'incentive' or implied it was a 'debate' on that couch with Pelosi. Please improve your inaccurate spin, instead of continuing to insult our intelligence.'
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.’
