Obama Establishes Another Government Bureaucracy to Handle Global Warming Fantasy

19 October, 2012

Nope.  It doesn’t matter one iota to Obama and his communist buddies that, despite all the dire prophecies of doom coming from the AGW alarmist crowd, the Earth’s temperature has remained stable for the past 16 years… 

Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead!:

Interior Dept. creates climate change committee
By: Audrey Hudson – Human Events10/19/2012

The Obama administration is creating an advisory committee on climate change to advise the federal government on future operations.

The Interior Department announced the new bureaucracy in a recent federal registry notice along with a call for nominations by Nov. 19 to seat the 25-member board.

The notice specifically states membership will be comprised of state and local government employees, non-governmental organizations, Native American tribes, academia, individual landowners and business interests.

“In addition, the committee may include scientific experts, and will include rotating representation from one or more of the institutions that host the (Interior Department) Climate Science Centers,” the notice said.

The climate centers were created to provide scientific information to help land, water, wildlife and cultural resource managers to monitor and adapt to climate change on regional and local levels.

Yup, nothing like a bunch of New World Order, hippy charlatans posing as scientists!  This bad, VERY bad!

More Debunking of AGW: Earth’s Surface Temperature Has Remained Relatively Stable for Past 16 yrs

15 October, 2012

Of course, the same Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmist charlatans who tout every seasonal hurricane or heat wave as proof positive that AGW is real are suddenly embracing the notion that we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions based upon a mere 16 years of data:

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it
By David Rose – The Guardian UK

The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.

The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued  quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

This stands in sharp contrast  to the release of the previous  figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.

[…]

Here are three not-so trivial questions you probably won’t find in your next pub quiz. First, how much warmer has the world become since a) 1880 and  b) the beginning of 1997? And what has this got to do with your ever-increasing energy bill?

You may find the answers to the first two surprising. Since 1880, when reliable temperature records began to be kept across most of the globe, the world has warmed by about 0.75 degrees Celsius.

From the start of 1997 until August 2012, however, figures released last week show the answer is zero: the trend, derived from the aggregate data collected from more than 3,000 worldwide measuring points, has been flat.

Not that there has been any  coverage in the media, which usually reports climate issues assiduously, since the figures were quietly release online with no accompanying press release – unlike six months ago when they showed a slight warming trend.

The answer to the third question is perhaps the most familiar. Your bills are going up, at least in part, because of the array of ‘green’ subsidies being provided to the renewable energy industry, chiefly wind.

[…]

[A]ccording to increasing numbers of serious climate scientists, it does suggest that the computer models that have for years been predicting imminent doom, such as  those used by the Met Office and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are flawed, and that the climate is far more complex than the models assert.

California Proving What We All Suspected: AGW Laws Are Nothing More Than Vehicles For The Government To Soak Up More Of Your Money

18 June, 2012

Behold, the AGW Slush Fund in action:

California to Use Revenue from Carbon Auctions to Reduce Huge Fund Deficit
By Gary Hunt – OilPrice.com

And you thought the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32) was all about limiting greenhouse gas emissions, didn’t you?  Think again.

There is a brewing fight in Sacramento over how to spend the gold expected to start pouring in when the Golden State starts its carbon cap and trade program.  The original intent of AB32 was to use the proceeds from the carbon permit auctions to invest in technologies and programs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Makes sense, right?

But the law was passed in the boom times of 2006.  Today six years later as the first carbon cap auction is being readied for later this year, California has a $16 billion general fund deficit and more than a few pet projects are going begging for money.

[…]

The only way California is going to dig itself out of this fiscal hole is by winning the lottery.

[…]

California’s mega-millions winning ticket is Governor Brown’s 2012-2013 State Budget proposal to take 80% of the carbon tax revenue or about $500 million per year to reduce the budget deficit for the coming two years.  The quarterly carbon credit auctions are expected to produce $660 million to $3 billion per year. The Governor’s budget assumes California will net $1 billion from such auctions to start. The $500 million of revenue take assumed in the first year proposed budget will be used to offset existing General Fund costs for current emissions regulation activities, and the remaining revenues will be used on new programs to reduce emissions.

UK Aid Helping Anthropogenic Global Warming Proponents Force Sterilize and Kill “Poor” People in India

30 April, 2012

Just ghastly!

Where is the outrage?  Move along, nothing to see here.  Pay no attention to Agenda 21:

UK aid helps to fund forced sterilisation of India’s poor

Gethin Chamberlain – The Guardian/Observer UK

Money from the Department for International Development has helped pay for a controversial programme that has led to miscarriages and even deaths after botched operations.

Tens of millions of pounds of UK aid money have been spent on a programme that has forcibly sterilised Indian women and men, the Observer has learned. Many have died as a result of botched operations, while others have been left bleeding and in agony. A number of pregnant women selected for sterilisation suffered miscarriages and lost their babies.

The UK agreed to give India £166m to fund the programme, despite allegations that the money would be used to sterilise the poor in an attempt to curb the country’s burgeoning population of 1.2 billion people.

[…]

Court documents filed in India earlier this month claim that many victims have been left in pain, with little or no aftercare. Across the country, there have been numerous reports of deaths and of pregnant women suffering miscarriages after being selected for sterilisation without being warned that they would lose their unborn babies.

Yet a working paper published by the UK’s Department for International Development in 2010 cited the need to fight climate change as one of the key reasons for pressing ahead with such programmes. The document argued that reducing population numbers would cut greenhouse gases, although it warned that there were “complex human rights and ethical issues” involved in forced population control.

[…]

Human rights campaigner Devika Biswas told the court that “inhuman sterilisations, particularly in rural areas, continue with reckless disregard for the lives of poor women”. Biswas said 53 poor and low-caste women were rounded up and sterilised in operations carried out by torchlight that left three bleeding profusely and led to one woman who was three months pregnant miscarrying. “After the surgeries, all 53 women were crying out in pain. Though they were in desperate need of medical care, no one came to assist them,” she said.

Among All Groups, More Dems Think Mild Winter in U.S. Caused By Anthropogenic Global Warming

21 March, 2012

Sheesh, no wonder they keep electing idiots to office:

Poll: Split on cause of warm winter

By TIM MAK – Politico

While the vast majority of Americans agree that it has been warm winter, there are sharp partisan differences over whether the cause is global warming, a new survey Wednesday shows.

Indeed, 79 percent of Americans believe that the winter, which officially ended with the beginning of spring on Tuesday, was warmer than usual, according to Gallup.

But the consensus ends at the cause of the mild winter. A majority of Republicans – 51 percent – believe the warmth is due merely to normal variations in year-to-year temperatures. Only 19 percent ascribe the warmer than usual winter to global warming.

On the other hand, a plurality of Democrats – 43 percent – believe that this past season’s temperate temperatures were caused by global warming, while 37 percent said that the temperatures were due to normal variations in year-to-year temperature.

Among independents, 51 percent attribute the warmer-than-usual winter to normal variations, while a comparatively higher percentage – 28 percent – points to global warming.

EnvironMENTALism Gone Wild: ‘Entrepreneur’ in Chile Arrested for Removing Ice From Glacier

2 February, 2012

When you get right down to the core of it, it’s just freakin’ ice!  And, despite what the AGW mob would have you believe, the Earth can always make more:

Glacier thief arrested in Chile
Police hold man on suspicion of stealing five tonnes of ice from a glacier in Patagonia to sell as designer ice cubes for cocktails
– Rory Carroll, Latin America correspondent – guardian.co.uk

Climate change sceptics have acquired a new explanation for why glaciers are retreating: it’s not global warming, it’s theft.

Uh…  Nope.  No bias whatsoever in that sentence!  /sarcasm

Police in Chile have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing five tonnes of ice from the Jorge Montt glacier in the Patagonia region to sell as designer ice cubes in bars and restaurants.

Local media reported that last Friday police intercepted a refrigerated truck with an estimated £3,900 worth of illicit ice allegedly bound for whiskies, rums and cocktails in the capital Santiago.

Authorities have accused the driver of theft and are considering adding violation of national monuments to the charge sheet.

Scientists say Jorge Montt, part of the Bernardo O’Higgins national park, is retreating by half a mile a year, making it one of the world’s fastest shrinking glaciers.

Environmentalists have cited it as evidence that man-made climate change is warming the planet. Sceptics have cited other explanations for retreating glaciers, but theft – until now – was not one of them. It may be the only case in which both sides agree human activity was to blame.

NASA Warns of Earth’s Destruction By Aliens if You Don’t Jump Aboard the Anthropogenic Global Warming Bandwagon

Is it just me, or is the AGW crowd getting even more desperate?:

"Ack-ack-ack ack!!!" Translation: "Reduce your emissions or die!!!!"

Pay Your Carbon Taxes To Al Gore Or Space Aliens Will Attack
Global warming alarmists invent new hoax after failing with everything else

Paul Joseph Watson

Friday, August 19, 2011

Having failed with drowning polar bears, global superstorms, rising sea levels and a myriad of other manufactured hoaxes, global warming alarmists have invented a new threat to try and persuade us to pay carbon taxes directly to Al Gore and the global elite – vengeful environmentalist extraterrestrials from outer space.

“It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim,” according to a Guardian report.

A new study conducted by researchers at Nasa’s Planetary Science Division posits that “green” ETs might get angry at Bubba driving his gas-guzzling SUV and respond by wiping humankind off the face of the earth to “protect other civilizations”.

“Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. “These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets,” the authors write.

Is it really any wonder why polls show belief in global warming is collapsing? A recent Rasmussen survey found that 69 per cent of Americans believed scientists had likely falsified climate change data to push their agenda.

They’ve fed us with drowning polar bears, overpopulation paranoia, global superstorms and all manner of manufactured lies in an effort to terrify people into accepting the hoax and blithely handing over their carbon taxes to Al Gore and the Rothschilds, but none of it has worked. Gore’s Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has all but collapsed. The fact that they have now resorted to playing the “alien invasion” card illustrates how desperate and discredited the climate change cult has become.
