… MUST BE GLOBAL WARMING

According to The Weather Channel, “a potentially major winter storm” is bearing down on the Deep South this week … extending what has already been an exceedingly chilly season.  The system is expected to bring “a swath of frozen and freezing precipitation” as far south as Charleston, S.C. and Savannah, Georgia – two cities which have issued winter storm watches for the first time since February 2010.

So in the immortal, oft-repeated words of the local radio announcers from Groundhog Day, “don’t forget your booties cause it’s cold out there …”

As was the case during the recent “Polar Vortex,” we suspect a loud debate will soon begin as to whether this latest Arctic blast has anything to do with global warming … or, as is increasingly the case, global non-warming.

As it relates to that debate let’s get something out of the way up front:  It is impossible to argue with a global warming supporter.  How come?  Because every weather pattern they witness proves their point. Hot summer? Global warming. Mild summer? Global warming. Warm winter? Global warming. Frigid winter? Global warming. Whatever the thermostat is doing – and for however long it does it – supporters of global warming see nothing but the validation of their belief.

That’s cult-like behavior, people.

Anyway, according to the latest data from NASA the global warming “pause” that began seventeen years ago continued in 2013.

Wait … what? Global warming has been on hold for nearly two decades? That’s right …

Meanwhile as of October 2013, Antarctic sea ice extent was at its highest level in recorded history – putting a continental-sized crimp in the whole “polar ice caps are melting” theory.

Miss this information? Of course you did … the data was virtually ignored by the mainstream media, which has been parroting global warming propaganda for years (roughly as long as global warming has been on hiatus, actually).

Ironic …

Don’t get us wrong: This website supports market-based conservation and environmental protection. We believe in the Biblical notion of stewardship  … and embrace the scientific discovery of new technologies which maximize efficiency and renewability. But that process must be driven by the private sector, not government – as the ill-fated ethanol experiment has laid bare.

Around 10,000 years when the last Ice Age (you know, the one that carved out the Great Lakes and created Niagara Falls and Long Island) was ending, was it due to the global warming caused by the cavemen driving their SUVs to work in their factories? Or maybe it was just the natural long-term warming/cooling cycle of the planet? Regardless, Global Warming talk always reminds me of this…http://youtu.be/qJUFTm6cJXM

There are also indices that we may be heading into another Maunder Minimum with regards to Solar activity. The original Maunder Minimum, a few hundred years ago, was associated with cooler temperatures in Europe and elsewhere.

These ‘experts’ can’t tell me with any level of certainty what the weather will be like 2 days from now but they are certain that we’re all screwed due to global warming?

…up to 95 percent of solar radiation is literally bounced back into space
by both CO2 and NO in the upper atmosphere. Without these necessary
elements, in other words, the earth would be capable of absorbing
potentially devastating amounts of solar energy that would truly melt
the polar ice caps and destroy the planet.

“The shock revelation
starkly contradicts the core proposition of the so-called greenhouse gas
theory which claims that more CO2 means more warming for our planet,”
write H. Schreuder and J. O’Sullivan for PSI. “[T]his compelling new
NASA data disproves that notion and is a huge embarrassment for NASA’s
chief climatologist, Dr. James Hansen and his team over at NASA’s GISS.”

Dr. Hansen, of course, is an outspoken global warming
activist who helped spark man-made climate change hysteria in the U.S.
back in 1988. Just after the release of the new SABER study, however,
Dr. Hansen conveniently retired from his career as a climatologist at NASA, and reportedly now plans to spend his time “on science,” and on “drawing attention to [its] implications for young people.”

I really hope you aren’t one of those people who, like Limbaugh, believe that the polar vortex thing was invented by the liberal media to defend global warming, even though Al Roker showed a book from the ’50s that laid out a description of the very same phenomenon.

Also, the Antarctic ice isn’t the polar ice that has been disappearing. The polar ice that has been melting over the past decades is in the northern hemisphere and is still disappearing. You’re on the wrong side of the planet, buddy.

I’m not one for global warming alarmism and I see the damage that programs like cap and trade can do, but I don’t buy this “global warming isn’t happening” bullshit that Republicans who take checks from fossil fuel industries drone on about. I think both sides are full of shit and we should be focusing on making as little impact to our environment as possible, as well as reducing our energy consumption and dependencies on non-renewable sources across the board in any and every way possible. Fuck global warming, that’s better for humanity in and of itself.

As per usual, Global Warming Deniers fabricate stories and invent their own “facts”.

The statement
“Anyway, according to the latest data from NASA the global warming “pause” that began seventeen years ago continued in 2013.”
is not true.

Despite the fantasies of Global Warming Deniers, the earth continues to warm at the rate of 4 Hiroshima atomic bombs per second – running 24/7 – including the years from 1998 to present.

I lean pretty conservative, but let’s be honest, the “it’s cold now, therefore global warming is disproved’ is a pretty dumb argument. Look at the historical temperature averages. Example- St. Louis used to get below 0 degrees several times a year. It got below 0 this year for the first time since the 1990s.

John,
What you notice is weather – the issue is climate. There are three perspectives:
1. Man’s activities are causing the climate to change
2. The climate ain’t changing
3. The climate is changing but you and I have noting to do with it
The truth is that the earth has been far warmer and far colder than it is now and that we had nothing to do with it then either.

In order to blame global warming on humans one must ignore
the impact of volcanoes (above and below sea level), natural methane leaks from
numerous lakes, nature caused forest fires (all over the world, we’ll ignore
man caused forest fires for this discussion) and the affects of sunspot
activity as well as other natural CO2 sources. I remember being taught that
there were at least three ice ages in the North American continent before man
could even generate enough CO2 to kill a single Tyrannosaurus Rex. Couple this
with the fact that these global warming alarmists won’t share methodologies or
computer models for outside peer review (read the hacked emails that they were
working to keep this information from their peers), moving data points (one
report I read said they dropped 2,000 of 6,000 world wide data points without
adjusting past data for the same dropped data points) and to top it all off one
of today’s chief global warming alarmists was a global cooling alarmist in the
late 70s early 80s (can’t remember his name but he was one whose emails were
hacked, talked about having to make treaties with Mexico to start moving
Americans down there). No, you can’t convince me with this garbage that, if
real – big if, global warming is being caused by or even substantially
contributed to by humans and anyone who is convinced is just wanting something
to be scared of.
