Actually, most of my posts here are odds & ends, and once again, I’m a bit delinquent in my updates. As always, my comments are in cayenne, and I recommend having a flash-blocker installed when viewing the page, so that multiple vids do not auto-run. I hate when that happens. ~Rich~
Global temperature change observed over the last hundred years or so is well within the natural variability of the last 8,000 years, according to a new paper by a former Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) lead author.
Our Dear Leader has recently threatened to take on limiting carbon emissions through regulatory agencies, since Congress “won’t act”. I’d like to remind everybody that a Democratic controlled Senate refused to ratify Kyoto years ago by a vote of 99-0.
Many, if not most people believe than man is on the road to causing catastrophic global warming, after all, Al Gore, Barack Obama and legions of others tell us incessantly that the science is settled, why there is even scientific “consensus”, even though the very concept of scientific consensus is antithetical to the concept of science itself.
Climate Forcing! Feedbacks, The PDO and The AMO! Aerosols, Greenhouse gases, the Sun and the Clouds, oh my! Don’t forget La Nina and el Nino, the Little Ice Age, and the Medieval Warming Period, to say nothing of cows belching and farting…and especially politics!
Here is my RichTAkes! on Anthropogenic Global Warming!
(as always, my comments appear in cayenne, and the use of a flash-blocker to disable auto-play is recommended due to multiple embedded vids.)
“It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion.”
Perhaps the preeminent US climate scientist, Lindzen was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was lead author of Chapter 7, ‘Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,’ of the IPCC Third Assessment Report on climate change.
One of the most telling features of climate science is just how few climate scientists changed their minds as the evidence changed. The pause in global temperature in the last 15 years or so has been unexpected. Now we know why:
“We check the main predictions of the climate models against the best and latest data. Fortunately the climate models got all their major predictions wrong. Why? Every serious skeptical scientist has been consistently saying essentially the same thing for over 20 years, yet most people have never heard the message.”
“The biggest threat to Obamacare is not Republicans. The biggest threat is Murphy’s Law, along with its corollary, the Law of Unintended Consequences. These are the most powerful laws in the world. They are even more powerful than the Affordable Care Act, and they are the nemesis of all master plans. Evidently, the President and his merry band of wonks had never heard of them.”
So now the Veterans from the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions have to once again parachute behind enemy lines in their wheel-chairs and walkers, wielding canes to visit their own WWII Memorial in the National Mall in DC., 70 years after they sacrificed blood and treasure to take Omaha Beach. Obama is being petulant, vindictive, and imperialistic. If he doesn’t get his way he is going to deliberately spread the pain around to the people whom he is supposedly serving, in a blatant act of political hypocrisy.
His behavior is nothing more than the childish exhibition of the petulance of a seven year old. Whaah!
