Climate activist Bill McKibben, who was key organizer of the NYC climate march in September 2014, wasted no time in blaming the massive blizzard bearing down on the Northeast on ‘global warming.’ McKibben tweeted.
But what McKibben left out was that less snowfall was predicted to happen with ‘global warming. The UN IPCC was very clear in its predictions: See: In 2001, the IPCC predicted milder winters and less snow. Experts are hoping no one remembers – UN IPCC 2001: ‘Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms’
UN IPCC Lead Author Michael Oppenheimer was also very clear in his predictions: See: NYT in 2000 quoted ‘Oppenheimer on the pathetic spectacle of the unused sled in his stairwell, symbol of a warming world: ‘I bought a sled in ’96 for my daughter,’ said Oppenheimer, a scientist at the nonprofit Environmental Defense Fund. ‘It’s been sitting in the stairwell, and hasn’t been used. I used to go sledding all the time. It’s one of my most vivid and pleasant memories as a kid, hauling the sled out to Cunningham Park in Queens.’
Also in 2000, scientists in the UK boldly predicted the end of snow due to ‘global warming.’ See: Flashback 2000: ‘Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past’: According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become ‘a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.’
Put these people in a rubber room. They need mental help.
Dr. Ball: 'The key phrase in the hottest 2014 claim is, “on the record”, but that only covers approximately 100 years. In the climatologically meaningful 10,000-year context, it is among the 3% COLDEST.'
Seems to me, the only thing settled is that liberals continue to ignore real science/data and refuse to debate the issue.
Princeton Physicist Dr. William Happer:
Observational data show clearly that the predictions of unacceptable warming by more carbon dioxide are wrong...There is no observational support for the theoretically dubious claim that ‘more carbon dioxide will cause unacceptable global warming, or more extreme weather’
'Data has been manipulated, honest scientific debate has been stifled, educational institutions have been turned into brain-washing centers for the cause, and trusting citizens have been misled by much of the mass media'
'And what is the great danger that this noble cause purports to save us from? Human emissions of carbon dioxide, a transparent, odorless, non-toxic gas, essential for plant growth and contained at about 40,000 parts per million (ppm) in our own breaths. Carbon dioxide has been mercilessly demonized as ‘carbon pollution’, when in fact it is a benefit to the planet. Agricultural production has increased substantially and the Earth is greener today with the 400 ppm current levels of carbon dioxide than it was with preindustrial levels of about 280 ppm. And two or three times higher levels would be even better.'
Why are you liberals afraid to debate the issue?
I have an experiment for lefties. Put one foot in a bucket of ice water. Put the other foot in boiling water. On average, you'll have a great temperature for bathing!
Do Greenhouse Gases Affect Antarctica? NASA Empirical Evidence Proves They Don't
CAGW proponents have a long-held belief that CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases are rapidly warming the Antarctica continent along with the surrounding oceans...further, this out-of-control warming is quickly melting sea ice and the South Pole's massive ice sheets...turns out, it's a case of unrepentant denial of climate reality.....
Way back in 1988, a NASA climate expert gave testimony that the 'high latitudes' (i.e. polar) would experience greater warming due to growth of human greenhouse gases (GHGs), including CO2 emissions.
This prediction was seized upon by global warming advocates as "proof" that the South Pole's unprecedented warming would melt sea ice and cause melting ice sheets to collapse, raising ocean levels and thus submerging worldwide coastal areas.
Indeed, there is strong evidence that GHGs have risen considerably - even to a greater extent then the feared 'business-as-usual' scenario NASA/GISS experts promulgated.
Yet the newest empirical research completely counters the fears and beliefs of the CAGW crowd: over the satellite era, some 30+ years, Antarctica's ice sheets have slightly grown and the South Pole's sea ice extent is at record levels.
Then there is the proverbial elephant in the CAGW room: the Antarctica region is not warming, per the advanced satellite technology of NASA. Those stubborn facts are indisputable and unequivocal.
Yet, denial of this empirical scientific evidence remains widespread, preventing a rational debate about the real implications of the ongoing natural climate change.
In its latest annual report, Planned Parenthood quantifies the total tax money it received at $528.4 million, or 41% of its total revenue, with 327,653 abortions committed. At a conservative estimate of $451 for the average abortion, that makes about $150 million in revenue directly from ripping children apart.
The strategy of daring Obama/Democrats to veto a host of pro-life bills will pay dividends. Americans out of the loop on this issue may then get the opportunity to see how radically pro-abortion Obama/Democrats are, and perhaps get a primer on how science indisputably shows that pre-born children are in fact innocent human beings.
Those who are for snuffing out those lives, be it by vacuum aspirator, by forceps, or by poison, should be given every possible opportunity to defend that position.
You won’t find it in the American media, but the U.K. Daily Mail has obtained confirmation from an administration spokesman that President Obama spent most of yesterday watching the NFL Playoffs.
According to an administration official, President Obama spent most of his Sunday watching National Football League games on television.
What a loser.........
A U.S.-led coalition airstrike killed at least 50 Syrian civilians late last month when it targeted a headquarters of Islamic State extremists in northern Syria.
The civilians were being held in a makeshift jail in the town of Al Bab, close to the Turkish border, when the aircraft struck on the evening of Dec. 28, the witnesses said. The building, called the Al Saraya, a government center, was leveled in the airstrike. It was days before civil defense workers could dig out the victims’ bodies.
The U.S. Central Command, which had not previously announced the airstrike, confirmed the attack Saturday in response to repeated McClatchy inquiries.
Where's Cindy Sheehan and the anti-war leftists & media??? Hmmmmmmm??????
Oh yea, it's another one of Obamas wars, so it's just A-OK......And still not a word from the left on the 1,000's of civilian deaths with Obamas drone strikes.
Still not a word about Bill Clinton from liberals/femizazeeez on this. Just like they don't dare say a word about Izlams treatment of women in sharia law - forced to be covered up, no driving, forcedClit-erectomies.
Why is the left so afraid of an independent Special Prosecutor to investigate potential IRS abuses/being weaponized? This issue should be of concern to all Americans, left or right....if you care about America.
Since Obamacare became law, employers have been griping about the definition of "full time" work - 30 hours a week. It means that any employee working 30 hours a week or more had to be covered by health insurance. This has resulted in more part time workers being hired and employers cutting back the hours of some workers to under 30.
Republicans see an opening to cripple Obamacare by boosting the definition of full time to 40 hours a week. To that end, bills have been introduced in both houses of Congress.
President Obama will probably veto the legislation. But there may be a chance to override that veto as many Democrats support the idea.
This is the first salvo fired against Obamacare by the Republican congress. Expect many other attacks as the GOP looks to whittle Obamacare away piece by piece.
And all the while, carbon dioxide (CO2), which is not a pollutant, has increased.
Carbon Dioxide is, in fact essential to life on the planet. Without it there are no plants, therefore no oxygen and no life.
At 385 ppm current levels the plants are undernourished. The geologic evidence shows an average level of 1000 ppm over 600 million years.
Research shows plants function most efficiently at 1000-2000 ppm. Commercial greenhouses use the information and are pumping C02 to these levels and achieve four times the yield with reduced water use. At 200 ppm, the plants suffer seriously and at 150 ppm, they begin to die.
3,000 ops cancelled as demand rises
More than 3,000 operations have been cancelled by the NHS in the first two weeks of this month as an "unprecedented demand" takes its toll.
Labour's shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said: "This is yet another sign that, under David Cameron, the NHS is simply not working.
"Standards of patient care are slipping by the week and now more and more people get ready for an operation only to face a last minute postponement.
"The chaos in A&E is spreading through the NHS. Hospitals are in danger of becoming overwhelmed as the Government takes social care away from older people and makes it harder to see a GP. These cancellations help to explain why operation waiting lists are at a six-year high."
Welcome to socialist guv't run single payer "utopia".........
And this diddy from the Obama/Sharpton/Holder/deBlasio marchers:
"We are going to killTWOcops for every one of us"
And don't forget this Obama/Sharpton/Liberal chant......PIGS IN A BLANKET!!!!!!
Blanket being a body bag.
Hillary Clinton is suffering a serious case of Kennedy deja vu.
This time it’s U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III who wil help derail Clinton’s White House path by endorsing her potential 2016 opponent, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, much the same way the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy backed Barack Obama in 2008.
“Whatever (Warren) wants to do she’s going to excel at,” the 34-year-old Kennedy said in interview with Herald editors and reporters. “She has been adamant that she’s not running for president and I take her at her word for that. We'll see if she changes her mind.”
Kennedy could be an ace in the hole for Warren, the freshman Democrat who has energized liberals around the country with her attacks on greedy banks, Wall Street and Washington’s cozy relationship with lobbyists.
lol......Poor Hillary, the brain-damaged, Bubba-Bill abused drunk can't catch a break.
By the way, I get a charge out of the Boston Newpaper describing Lez Warren as having energized liberals around the country with her attacks on greedy banks, Wall Street and Washington’s cozy relationship with lobbyists.
Lez Warren is a $$$$ multi-multi- millionairre TOP 1%-er, who did battle for the TOP 1% and EVIL corporations/lobbyists at her law firm. Her WHOLE CAREER was built on catering to "greedy" Banks, Wall Street corporations and lobbyists.
Liberals foiled again. They were praying/crying for a white, male, Tea Partier.....and all they got was another liberal black muxxlim.
Bill Clinton has no degree from Oxford. The Rhode Scholar Rapist was tossed out of Oxford for raping 19 year old Emily Wellstone, beginning a pattern that will make Bill Cosby look like a boy scout.
There are a total of 8 instances where Bill Clinton was accused ofRape. Hillaryran theNuutttz&SluuttzzDefense, a true war on the sexuallyAssaulted women.
These do not inclue any of the concentualAffairsBubba engaged in.
This is going to be brought out inGREATdetail, if Hillary chooses to run.
HAVANA — President Raúl Castro declared victory for the Cuban Revolution on Saturday in a wide-ranging speech, thanking President Obama for “a new chapter,” while also reaffirming that restored relations with the United States did not mean the end of Communist rule in Cuba.
In a televised speech that lasted less than an hour at the end of Cuba’s legislative session, Mr. Castro alternated between conciliatory and combative statements against the United States and the rest of the world.
0bama apologized to the head communist by giving him a gift of millions of dollars, while allowing him to continue being a repressive money-grabbing communist, complete with horrible human rights violations including forced labor & gulags.
Obamas weak, horrible deal got the USA NOTHING.
Because the unborn, according to science, are human, the leading cause of death of black Americans is abortion. More blacks are aborted each year than die from the other 7 leading causes of death combined.
Eighty percent of abortion facilities are in minority neighborhoods, and blacks are three times as likely to kill their unborn child as whites are. If black lives mattered to liberals, they’d be up in arms over this racist effort by organizations like Planned Parenthood.
Instead, the same folks who are ignoring the facts of the Ferguson case and imputing nonexistent racism to the Garner case are strong and proud supporters of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations that target blacks.
You libs hate 3D Sonograms too, don't you?
