The Global Warming Crisis is officially over

Anthropogenic global warming Luddites

February 25, 2009

Do you people have reading comprehension problems? I just got another “You don’t even believe in ‘Global Warming’ whines.

What part of “I am one of Global Warming biggest fans” is it you just can’t grok?
Given that the most common historic weather pattern for most of North American, Europe and a big chunk of Asia is to be under several kilometers of glacial ice, you should be having those knee bones hit the floor and thank whatever Deity you worship that you live in an age of global warming.

Unless you are one of those Algore cultists who refuse to acknowledge basic science and geological records that show that drastic climate change is a solid scientific fact that predates the industrial revolution (i.e. when mankind started producing greenhouse gases by burning fossil fuels in a large scale manner) and in fact predates the existence of mankind on the planet by a very long fornicating time.

A good way to tell that these AGW proponents are cultists and not based in reason and actual science is their refusal to logically debate the subject. They call you a “denier” and try to shut down debate. Arguing from emotion is easier than debating facts, which is why the AGW cultists don’t want to debate, but instead want to shut down any and all debate on the subject.

Most of those cultists will point to Al Gore’s fear mongering propaganda film. You know the one, it was based on the slide show he put together to pitch his business. A business that sells “carbon credits” to gullible morons. Carbon credits that he gets for free as an employee and tells you that those “offsets” make up for his his giant mansion with the heated pool and flying around the world in private jets that put out dozens “SUV Years” worth of green house gases per mile.

On the subject of “deniers”, you won’t find a better example of Al Gore. In putting together his pitch, he had to deliberately deny solid scientific facts about history in order to support his “hockey stick” graph. Historic facts like the Little Ice Age that ended near the closing of the nineteenth century. In geological terms, that was about five minutes ago. So the records are pretty easy to check. The Thames river froze solid enough during the Victorian and Edwardian period that the city of London had “Ice Festivals.” People built shacks on the in the middle of the river and people walked out to them for a good three months out of the year. This was well documented in the literature and newspapers of the time. During the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries, Londoners complain if they get a little snow. A fairly significant change in temperature, but according to Algore’s graph, that period is a flat line. He also denies the earlier Medieval Warm Period. A period of history were there are records of wheat being grown on Greenland and London was a well know wine producing region. There are still streets in London with names reference vineyards and wine production dating back to that period. He had to edit these fairly recent examples of more extreme climate change out of his data in order to make things look worse than they really are and get you scared enough to believe his bullshit.

So, let’s review. Al Gore faked the data, i.e. he lied, in order to prove his theory is his fear mongering propaganda film. A film designed to build business for his company that sells “carbon offsets.” A business model that has been widely documented to be a scam in news organizations including the New York Times.

Let’s review some of the “scientists” who back the Cult of Algore, including the ones who were warning everyone that the world was entering another Ice Age and that Global Cooling was the threat. That was before they found out that the money was better on the “Global Warming” side of the street. Go check Time magazine from 1974. Global Cooling was going to destroy civilization as we know it.

If you don’t believe me, do your own research. The facts are there. Hell, Penn & Teller did an episode of BullShit! on the subject.

Let’s review a few facts. Yes, pollution is very bad. Cutting back on overall fossil fuel use is good. Moving to cleaner energy sources such as wind, solar and nuclear (yes I said Nuclear you Luddites, and the founder of the GAIA movement in the UK and one founders of Greenpeace agrees with me) is good. Being taken in a simple scam such as “carbon credits” is bad.

The “Global Warming” fear mongers couldn’t even predict a short term climate change, such as the recent period of cooling that started in 1998. That is why they now call it “Climate Change” and will spout complete nonsense including trying to claim that the cooling is a sign that “Global Warming” is happening even faster.

Come on people! Open your mind! Review the facts. Ask questions! Why was Communist China, now the biggest producer of dirty green house gases (yes, they passed the US, which is reducing its own rate of emissions faster than the European countries that signed the Kyoto Protocols), given a free pass to pollute at record rates in the Kyoto Protocols? If things really are as bad as Algore and the rest of the Fear Mongers are telling you, why did Communist China get a free pass to build a new dirty coal fired electrical plant every month? The US and other Western nations tax gasoline, and one of the reasons for the tax is to reduce its use. Communist China on the other hand, subsidizes gasoline prices. Their goal is for more people in Communist China to buy cars and drive them more often, making the problem of “Man Made Global Warming” worse? Why did Al Gore and the other nations that supported the Kyoto Protocols agree to that if this really and truly is a global crisis?

Don’t forget to check why hundreds of actual real scientists in the field of global climate have left the UN’s IPCC, stating that the reason was the organization was motivated by politics and not real science.

Let’s review. Is global climate is change real? Hell Ya! It’s being going on long before Homo Sapiens wandered out of Africa and will continue. Is Al Gore and the rest of the AGWs fear mongers running a scam on the gullible? Hell Ya! Let’s be real, it’s just a scam. Calling it a conspiracy would be insulting to the people who are intelligent enough to come up with decent and semi-plausible conspiracies. Is pollution bad and should intelligent people work in ways to reduce it? Hell Ya! I’ll bet most of the people would read this are doing more for that than Al Gore or any one of that breed of hypocritical limousine liberals. Just look at how the rate of death from lung diseases have sky rocketed in Communist China since they started building an extremely dirty coal fired electrical plant a month. Then ask yourself why the IPCC or the UN Human Rights commission isn’t doing a damn thing about it.

Let’s compare this to another science/pseudo science debate. Evolution and Intelligent design. In this case, I’m the Evolution side which looks at all the evidence and draws a logical conclusion based on the full range of scientific data. You Algore Cultists are the ones selectively cherry picking only the stray bits of science that fit your narrow viewpoint of what you feel must be true. Except in this case, I’ll give bonus points to the Intelligent Design folks because they at least admit their bias.

Update: The Japan Society of Energy and Resources isn’t buying Algore’s bullshit either.

Update: Hardly surprising, the Penn & Teller video I linked to earlier in the post has “been removed for violations of terms of service.” No other videos of Bullshit! episodes, just this one mocking the AGW cultists High Priest Algore. Here is a link they haven’t shut down yet,and another of the first segment. Why are the AGW cultists afraid of open and honest debate of the actual science of the subject of climate change.

About that Global Warming thing…

January 11, 2009

The meteorological institute of Germany warns metal earrings on people’s body could cause dangerous freezing with the current extreme conditions in Europe.

Consider this comes from Pravda, but this article claims that the current warming cycle is ending and that the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.

Climate Change

December 19, 2008

First off, Climate Change is a hard scientific fact. The Earth’s climate has change drastically over time and odds are that it still will. Keep in mind that most of that extreme fluctuation has happened before Homo sapiens arrived on the planet and there has been recorded climate change before the Industrial Revolution.

So when “supposedly” smart people like soon to be VP Joe Bieden says that he thinks that climate change is 100% due to the effects of man, you have to wonder about just how long he’s been on crack.

With actual real science, if the facts don’t fit your theory, you change your theory. With the Cult of Algore “Global Warming” conspiracy types, there is a solid history of changing the facts to fit their so-called “theory”.

One of the early and most blatant ones was the “Hockey Stick” graph used in the infamous Al Gore propaganda film. In order to get that “Hockey Stick” graph, which they needed to “prove” their so-called “theory”, it was necessary to both edit out relevant data and hack the algorithms to edit out both the Little Ice Age and the Medieval Warm Period.

Continuing that policy of editing the facts to fit their so-called “theory”, is Seth Borenstein’s propaganda piece disguised as a “science” article. Note his very carefully selection of dates. Yup, there was a brief warm period during the Clinton years, but it has been cooling since then. A fact Borenstein is very careful not to note, except for the rather bizzare statement that a global cooling trend “actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.” No facts or cites to back that up, just an unsupported “proof by assertion.” The article also has the typical watermelon America bashing, leaving out the fact that the US has slowed it’s rate of carbon emissions more than the Western European countries that signed the Kyoto Treaty. He also engages the typical “Bush Bashing” by leaving out the fact that it was President Bill Clinton who killed the Kyoto Treaty by not sending to the Senate for ratification. President Clinton could read the writing on the wall, and the unanimous Senate vote stating that they opposed the treaty. Yup, every single democrat present (98 Senators voted) voted against the Kyoto Accords before they were presented to the Senate.

How have actual Scientists responded to Borenstein’s article? Noel Sheppard has compiled a short list:

In his latest screed, he screams: “global warming is accelerating”

How then does he explain the fact that the mean global temperature (as measured by satellite) is the same as it was in 1980?

How can global warming be “accelerating” when the last two years have seen dramatic cooling? Is this guy totally removed from all reality?????

He completely ignores any evidence contrary to his personal beliefs, and twists everything to meet his preconceived notions. — David Deming, University of Oklahoma

Global warming is not “accelerating”: global warming has stopped. There has been no statistically significant rise in (mean global temperature: MGT) since 1995 and MGT has fallen since 1998.

The Earth has been warming from the Little Ice Age (LIA) for 300 years so, of course, the warmest years happened recently. But that warming from the LIA peaked in the El Nino year of 1998. MGT has been near but below that peak for the last 10 years.

Arctic ice advances and recedes over decades. 2007 saw a minimum in Arctic ice cover in the short period that it has been monitored using satellites. But 2008 saw the most rapid growth in Arctic ice cover in that same period and Arctic ice cover is now back to the average it has had in the period. Also, 95% of polar ice is in the Antarctic and Antarctic ice is increasing.

Nobody can know if the recent halt to global warming is temporary, permanent or the start of a new warming or cooling phase. But it is certain that anybody who proclaims that “Global warming is accelerating” is a liar, a fool, or both. — Richard S. Courtney, a UN IPCC expert reviewer and a UK-based climate and atmospheric science consultant.

There is a lot more. Go read it all.

There is more at Hot Air as well.

Cutting back on pollution is a “Good Thing.” Promoting Junk Science to line Al Gore’s pockets and support Socialists put out of a job by the fall of Communism is a “Bad Thing.”

CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers chimes in with some actual rational thought on the subject.

About that Global Warming Thing..

December 9, 2008

It looks like its going to get very cold in Southern California.

“We know we are due for a winter storm sometime this year. The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region. With this, may come low elevation snow.”

Normally, I’d blame Canada for this type of weather, but this time it looks like the Russians.

About that Global Warming thing…

November 25, 2008

As I’ve said before, I’m a big fan of Global Warming.
Weather Channel co-founder Joseph D’Aleo and other scientists are not.

Armed with statistics from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climate Data Center, D’Aleo reported in the 2009 Old Farmer’s Almanac that the U.S. annual mean temperature has fluctuated for decades and has only risen 0.21 degrees since 1930 — which he says is caused by fluctuating solar activity levels and ocean temperatures, not carbon emissions.

Data from the same source shows that during five of the past seven decades, including this one, average U.S. temperatures have gone down. And the almanac predicted that the next year will see a period of cooling.

HT to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, who notes:

The global-warming movement exists to provide cover for statists who demand central control over energy production. That’s an inconvenient truth that has begun to emerge as global temperatures fail to meet expectations of increase. Rather than admit that more research is needed, global-warming activists have increased the hysterical tone of their efforts, demanding immediate action and giving dire predictions of catastrophe without it.

Over 31,000 scientists have now signed onto the Global Warming Petition Project, demanding more skepticism and a return to scientific inquiry into climate change rather than political propaganda. They face an uphill battle in convincing the beneficiaries of research dollars from Washington to risk their funding by acting like scientists.

Global Warming Cultists: A reality free zone

November 21, 2008

You see quotes like this, “especially with the world finally seeing the effects of global warming”, in regards to “carbon emissions” and you have to wonder what reality these people are tuning into?

Earth to cultist! It hasn’t been getting any warmer on a global scale for the past decade!

We haven’t even seen swings in climate lately that we have in fairly recent (on a global scale) history. Such as wheat grown on Greenland or the Thames freezing solid for months.

Climate change happens. It’s a naturally occurring process. Given that one of the most common weather patterns for a good chunk of North America is to be under hundreds, or even thousands, of meters of glacial ice, I say bring on the “Global Warming!” Those who pay attention to such matters prefer that to “Global Cooling.”

The seas rise a few meters and the Kennedy Compound submerges, along with Streisand’s mansion. Big Whoop. Temps drop a handful or two of degrees Celsius and we loose a lot of farmland.
