In the 1970s the Earth was cooling. In the early-2000s the Earth was warming. Now, if it is warm or cold outside it’s… Climate Change! And it’s man’s fault. And you should write a check to pay for it. So we hear it’s not about weather it’s about climate. So this explains away any shift in temperatures… whether it rains or […]
What are always the three themes of science fiction/invasion films? Either the aliens come to Earth to conquer, to warn, or to co-exist. England’s The Guardian delved into the topic of Global Warming via alien invasions taken from a serious (supposedly) scientific paper titled “Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity?”
I came across this article today regarding Time DeChristopher… self-proclaimed Global Warming “warrior.” He’ll be enjoying three hots and a cot for the foreseeable future.
What did he do?
He bid on oil and gas leases in 2008 but he didn’t have the money to pay for them. His idea was to win the auctions, refuse to pay, and thus scuttle the deal for everybody, which ended up happening.
The Daily Mail, a British paper, reports that Stan Cox of Kansas lives without A/C and he thinks everyone else should, too. His reasons? By running your air conditioning you’re hurting Mother Earth and will cause even more hotter Summers which will lead to a vicious air conditioning Global Warming cycle:
Mr Cox, 54, says he saves money and the environment by keeping the air-conditioning switched off – and he rarely breaks into a sweat.
According to England’s Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman, unless billions of dollars is spend to fight “global warming” everything from WiFi to food supplies will be put at risk. Even the Rail Minister (this is a real position?) agrees:
Despite the need to cut the deficit, the Government is committed to investing in our transport infrastructure through vital projects such as the Thameslink upgrade, Crossrail, the proposed High Speed rail network and more electrification of the rail network.
In the Liberal Police State by the Bay, a new plan is afoot to “monitor” how much energy non-residential buildings consume. The new law sounds inoffensive but the collection of data can only fuel the Police State further:
He signed into law legislation requiring owners of nonresidential buildings to figure out how much energy their building consumes, which then must be disclosed to the public every year. In addition, the law requires commercial buildings in excess of 10,000 square feet to conduct energy efficiency audits every five years.
The collected information will be used to shame building owners for target by Greeners who think they should consumer less electricity. The goal is to help San Francisco meet it’s “Global Warming” targets according to the new mayor.
It seemed for several years that the Global Warming Lie was working. Kyoto in the 1990s wasn’t signed by the U.S. but many countries did sign on even though they never really did much with it except castigate Americans for being ignorant or greedy or doubters. And as long as those countries didn’t need to actually do anything the illusion could continue that mankind really was causing the world to warm. Socialists and Communists signed on because they saw it as the best way to kill capitalism and further their own political goals.
But the “success” of Global Warmers was, in the end, their undoing.
Fantastic claims about seas rising, nations being flooded and disappearing, children growing up without snow where it had once been common scared a lot of people.
The United Nations, that bastion of intellectual and moral superiority has denied credentials to journalist, filmmaker, and Global Warming skeptic Phelim McAleer. Mr. McAleer has a dangerous history of asking politicians and scientists embarrassing questions that challenge them to explain why mankind is causing Global Warming.
Mr. McAleer also has a habit of asking his questions whilst filming. Turns out the U.N. doesn’t like that, either. In a move which surely angered the hypocritical Left, he made a movie titled Come Fly with Me where he documented how most people who attended the Global Warming conference in Copenhagen flew there even though these people believe flying destroys the planet.
In a sop to large agricultural states, agri-business, and Global Warmers, Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has approved a proposal to increase the percentage of Ethanol in our gasoline. For cars, the blend is currently 90% gas and 10% Ethanol. The EPA wants to increase that to 15% Ethanol.
If “E15″ arrives at a pump near you it’ll be designed only for cars built after the 2006 model year which are “Alternative Fuel” vehicles. Try and use it in anything older and eventually the stuff will destroy the fuel delivery systems of any car by eating away at the petroleum-based tubing and gaskets.
Oil companies don’t want to refine the stuff – and gas stations don’t want to sell it – because what if they are sued because a customer’s car became damaged by using the E15? Who is going to pay those legal bills?
Ironically, the higher Ethanol standard is supposed to reduce smog but may actually increase pollutants.
Hal Lewis is a Professor Emeritus at the University of California at Santa Barbara’s physics’ department. He had been a member of the American Physical Society for 67 years but, because of that organization’s silence in the face of the “global warming” lie, he sent in a letter of resignation. The letter has been reprinted numerous times online but may be found here. In his letter, he essentially talks about the flood of money into “global warming” science and how this has corrupted the field and produced false results. Coming on the heals of Climategate where emails were made public exposing the lies behind “global warming” scientists, Mr. Lewis’ letter will probably produce little attention from the media as they disagree with anybody would would refute the certainty that mankind is changing our planet’s climate.
