Sure, there has been Global Warming-- and Cooling-- for eons.  In the 1970's we were told that we would experience Global Cooling. The opposite happened. So, then we were told of Global Warming-- with the added warning that WE are causing it and that "carbon" is at fault. We have been warned of imminent catastrophe, that the oceans will rise and engulf us, that major climate and weather changes will occur. Every new storm and flood promotes a flood of blame of Global Warming.  But for ten years, we actually had Global Cooling instead. Wags amused us by photographing Global Warming conference venues snowed in, during record cold snaps. So, the Global Warming experts have now retooled and simply became "Climate Change" experts.

 

Since then, much of the "Warmers'" research and statistics have been debunked.  32,000 scientists signed a petition that man-made "Global Warming" is hokum.  A strong correlation of temperature vs solar activity has been documented.  Some prominent "Warmers" have recanted, their "science" demolished.

 

But, in spite of ALL this, folks like Al Gore have actually doubled down......

FLASHBACK: Gore earned a 'D' in Natural Sciences in college...

 

This would amusing, if it wasn't for the major policy changes which they have driven and enormous costs incurred, trying to solve problems that do not seem to actually exist.  Cap and trade is now a reality in California, along with hundreds of other (some draconian) environmental and energy laws now on the books, with more in the pipeline. We are trying to roll most of these back and instead focus on real problems-- problems that might actually have solutions.

 

With the terrible financial, economic, social and REAL natural disaster problems we have to contend with, it is "silly," as our misguided Bloviator-in-Chief might say, to be focusing on this warming stuff.

Chris Christie, New Jersey Governor, Plans To Pull Out Of Greenhouse Gas Initiative

this is VERY big news

Good news for New Jersey. In Ventura County, mayors Dennis Gillette of Thousand Oaks and Patrick Hunter of Moorpark pledged their cities to the Mayors Climate Protection Agreement - and I don't recall any pulic debate or discussion. We should send them a Constitution with Article 1 Section 10 highlighted: "No State shall, without the Consent of Congress...enter into any Agreement or Compact..., or with a foreign Power, ...." I wonder what the City laws say.
Good point-- I'll sign it!

Global Warming Charlatans Feel the Heat

By Alan Caruba

The University of Virginia, after vigorously resisting a Freedom of Information Act (FOI) request for data related to the emails of Michael Mann, was the subject of a court order to make them available. While global warming is known worldwide for its claim that manmade warming would doom the Earth, the names and machinations behind the fraud are far less well known.

Mann, a climatologist, was part of a relatively small clique of charlatans who, working for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), conjured up all manner of “proof” that the Earth was on dangerous trajectory, heating up. Mann invented the “hockey stick” graph that demonstrated this bit of climate magic.

With Al Gore as the most famous face of global warming, Mann and others lent credibility to the IPCC that called for massive reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions resulting from energy use of fossil fuels, primarily oil and coal.

Mann’s problem began when the “hockey stick” graph was debunked and demolished as bogus. All this occurred while Mann was on the faculty of the University of Virginia and while large amounts of research grant money were being received by the University to support Mann and others.

Since 1990, it is estimated that $100 billion of taxpayer’s funding went to support “climate research” by thousands of scientists who, it turned out, were unable to find and certainly not measure any evidence of human influence on global temperature.

The same thing was occurring across the Atlantic in England where the University of East Anglia was home to Mann’s IPCC co-conspirators. On May 25th, the Guardian reported that Nobel Laureate, Sir. Paul Nurse, complained that the British version of FOI was being used to “harass” some climate scientists by requesting data and other research materials.

Given the collusion of both the University of Virginia and of East Anglia, it should come as no surprise that both institutions held their own boards of inquiry and cleared the climate scientists on their staffs of any wrongdoing. That explains why the court had to have had dragged them into demonstrating the probity of their activities.

This is far from a spat between some universities and their scientists, and "skeptics" challenging the global warming fraud. It most certainly is a fraud when global warming claims are used to impose a huge cost to consumers when utilities and other large emitters of carbon dioxide are required by law to utilize “alternative” sources such as wind and solar power or to install multi-million dollar technologies to needlessly reduce CO2 emissions.

Plainly stated, CO2 emissions have zero effect on the weather or the climate.

David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey, who have brought a law suit, American Electric Power v. Connecticut, all the way to the Supreme Court, note that “It is impossible to determine whether emissions by any particular power plant—or U.S. electricity production as a whole—have affected warming trends and, if so, how.” A decision is pending.

The global warming hoax, which at one point involved a scheme to sell “carbon credits” to industry and businesses so they could continue to emit CO2, enriched those selling the credits in both the U.S. and Europe until the global warming hoax began to implode in November 2009. The exchanges selling the credits closed their doors.

It was in November 2009 that a huge cache of emails between Mann and other IPCC scientists was imported to the Internet where it rapidly became clear that they were very worried that the Earth had entered a natural cooling cycle in 1998 and discussed how to pressure scientific journals to not publish the research of skeptics refuting the hoax.

The IPCC continues to propagate global warming lies, only now it is called “climate change.” Any pubic figure that uses the term “climate change” is lying if for no other reason than the climate of the Earth has been and is always in a state of change.

As courts in the U.S. and England continue to require the global warming charlatans and their universities to make known their alleged “scientific research” and email exchanges to further the hoax, a larger question looms. Should not such activity be deemed a deliberate fraud and should not injured parties, including the whole populations of America and England have a standing in court to see that they are punished?

Unanswered is the role that the mass media played in spreading and defending the global warming hoax. On Memorial Day, when we celebrate the sacrifice of fallen heroes to preserve liberty, the Washington Post published a bizarre editorial criticizing “climate skeptics” for using the FOIA to find out why Mann and the University of Virginia received funding while participating in a massive deception. Unmentioned were comparable Greenpeace FOIA efforts against climate skeptics.

It's worth noting that the global warming/climate change fraud is still being perpetrated in American schools from coast to coast.

Already, a number of Republican candidates for the presidency have refuted global warming or an earlier role in advocating it. For too long, politicians have not just been wrong, but often deliberately ignorant of the truth.

Justice may be slow, but it will be served and that is a lesson the entire scientific community should take note. As more revelations occur, even the mainstream media will be unable to protect the global warming/climate change perpetrators or to be their co-conspirators.

I heard that Romney is for regulations because of the human contribution to global warming. (Please tell me this is all a nightmare.) This doc is going on out to my neighborhood mailing list. If only people would be curious and think. Maybe this will help. Thanks George

Three Industrial Powers Leaving Kyoto Agreement

 

“It’s over: UN’s Kyoto Protocol Destined for Scrapheap of History.” So reads the headline on the Climate Depot story disclosing that Japan, Russia, and Canada will not join a second round of carbon cuts under the Kyoto Protocol.

And with the United States stating that it will remain outside the treaty, the agreement appears all but dead, according to the Climate Depot website, which chronicles the opposition to global warming alarmists.

Developed nations signed the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, agreeing to legally binding commitments on curbing greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming.

Those pledges expire at the end of 2012, and a second agreement would be needed to continue the protocol. But at the recent meeting of the G-8 nations in France, diplomats from Japan, Russia, and Canada confirmed that they would not join a new agreement, AFP reported.

They argued that the agreement did not require developing nations — including China, the world’s leading carbon emitter — to make emission cuts.

President Barack Obama said at the G-8 dinner that the United States would not join the new protocol.

The U.S. signed the agreement in 1997, but in 2001 President George W. Bush said he would not put it to the Senate for ratification.
