Re: Global Warming Refresher

IPCC have no explanation. Temps are stalled not increasing

 

snip-

However, climate scientists including United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) lead author Hans von Storch report temperatures have remained essentially flat for the past 10 years, and indeed for the past 15 years.  Storch told Der Spiegel that 98 percent of IPCC climate models cannot replicate the prolonged pause in global warming, and IPCC may need to revise its computer models to correct their apparent warming bias.

During yesterday’s Environment and Public Works hearings, Sen. David Vitter asked a panel of experts, including experts selected by Boxer, “Can any witnesses say they agree with Obama’s statement that warming has accelerated during the past 10 years?”

For several seconds, nobody said a word. Sitting just a few rows behind the expert witnesses, I thought I might have heard a few crickets chirping, but I couldn’t tell for sure. We’ll give Obama the benefit of the doubt and count the crickets in the “maybe” camp.

After several seconds of deafening silence, global warming activist Heidi Cullen, who formerly served as a meteorologist for the Weather Channel, attempted to change the subject. Cullen said our focus should be on longer time periods rather than the 10-year period mentioned by Obama. When pressed, however, she contradicted Obama’s central assertion and said warming has slowed, not accelerated.

Several minutes later, Sen. Jeff Sessions returned to the topic and sought additional clarity. Sessions recited Obama’s quote claiming accelerating global warming during the past 10 years and asked, “Do any of you support that quote?”

Again, a prolonged and deafening silence ensued. Neither Cullen nor any of the other experts on the panel spoke a word, not even in an attempt to change the subject.

Boxer may have envisioned her high-profile global warming hearings as an opportunity to build momentum for congressional or EPA action to restrict carbon dioxide emissions. Instead, the very global warming activists she called to serve as expert witnesses delivered a crushing blow to President Obama’s central justification for expensive new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions.

Re: Global Warming Refresher

 

 Ok, So lets take this to the inevitable. At some point, human population will simply collapse

( earlier predictions were around the year 2100, now its within our lifetimes; 20-40 years). 

 

I know some of you think that Climate Change means we will wake up one day and the temp gets to be 154 degrees on the the fourth of July, the corn shrivles, and livestock dies but thats not how it will go. Atleast I hope not.  But It will be massive catastrophic weather.. drought, floods etc that fails to feed the 7 Billion Peeps. And it wont take long to spiral down to local unrest, war, starvation, disease ..whatever.

 

The good news there will be survivors and finally  all the cars will sit and rust.The fracking will cease and the tar sands and rain forests can slowly recover.

 

The bad news is all the Nuclear plants will go into Meltdown causing a half trillion years of an

UNrecoverable toxic radiating mayhem. Even the mighty Cockroach cannot withstand that.

 

The few survivors slaughter their children out of sheer kindness.

So, Thank You to those too dumb or too greedy to see, accept, change or even get out of the way.

Re: Global Warming Refresher

interesting reading but if there was a real profound revelation on page 3 ---------- I didn't get there.

 

Hot ////////cold or profiteering off of either has never got me too riled.

 

But when we slip into the idea that the earth is fragile and mighty man is distroying it --------------- we find ourselves in a comic book.

 

Maybe it is the location but the earth i live in will chew up and spit out this society when it feels like it.  There is nothing weak about it.   rebuild itself in a short time -------and be ready for the next society to get full of itself.   Man or beast.

Re: Global Warming Refresher

Sw,

 

so it is ok to pollute the water, air, land and oceans because Mother Earth is indestructible?    I guess we can start planting corn and soybeans at Chernobyl because Mother Earth has cleaned it up.
