Former UN IPCC Lead Author Dr. Richard Tol: ‘One of the startling facts about climate change is that there are very few facts about climate change. Climate change is mainly something of the future so we are really talking about model projections’

EIF 2014:UN Climate Change efforts destined to fail, as Beijing will shape policies for years to come, according to University of Sussex Professor Richard Tol. WRIN.tv speaks with Dr. Richard Tol during the recent European Insurance Forum about climate change, and its impact on the insurance industry. He is a Professor at the University of Sussex, and the Professor of the Economics of Climate Change at the Institute for Environmental Studies and Department of Spatial Economics at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.
According to Dr Tol, “One of the startling facts about climate change is that there are very few facts about climate change.  Climate change is mainly something of the future so we are really talking about model projections.”  
Dr. Tol feels that the impact of climate change is a “symptom of underdevelopment and mismanagement. For example (hurricane) Katrina devastated New Orleans. How much of that was due to bad weather and how much to bad management of the costal defenses.&q…

WAPO accuses the left of scientific misconduct? Well slap me down, The Insiders: The left is to blame for the distorted global warming debate

The problems of the warmsters continue–when even the robots at the WAPO see a problem?I will say I am amazed. Maybe its a head fake?
The New Republic’s recent article by Jonathan Cohn, “Obama’s new rules for coal plants are a B.F.D.,” exemplifies what is wrong with the political debate on climate change. The piece is ostensibly about the new Environmental Protection Agency regulations that will limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, but it serves to make the left’s tired case for action on global warming. In pushing the left’s climate change agenda, Cohn cites the same old claims that get repeated ad nauseam. He even purports to answer a list of “frequently asked questions,” but actually relies on vague talking points supplied by the usual suspects on the left instead of providing any precise, clear information. What scientists say about global warming isn’t the problem; the problem is what political professionals and ideologues say when they enter into the conver…

Global Warming Insanity Has Gone Beyond Satire

It is now obvious that the Warmist movement will go to any lengths to try to frighten and intimidate the public as their cause goes slowly down the drain.  I can scarcely believe what I have just read in the respected climate blog, climatecentral.org. Last August, I wrote a satire article for AT, titled  “Global Warming Responsible for Epidemic of Rail Disasters?”  Although the article was clearly labelled “Satire”, several left-leaning blogs reposted it as fact, including Time-Warner Cable (until they realized it was a joke).  My post was obviously an over-the-top analysis of rail disasters linked to global warming, making fun of the apocalyptic predictions of global warming alarmists: The devastation that this will cause is incalculable.  Passenger deaths will rise to the millions.  Poisonous fumes from wrecked tank cars will pollute the atmosphere; noxious chemicals will be released into rivers and lakes, destroying the ecosystem.  Flammable liquids will be ignited, causing horrific,…

America’s Highest Ranked Climate Charlatans: Obama and Kerry, The Myth of the Climate Change 97%

John Kerry, our Secretary of State, continues to provide reasons to believe he is either too stupid to hold such a high position or too willing to tell lies to keep pace with President Obama.

Their views on “climate change” are so lacking in scientific fact that they are telling people we’re all doomed if we don’t abandon vast traditional U.S. energy resources and continue to throw more billions at “renewable energy” that provides a very costly three percent of the nation’s huge energy needs. Meanwhile, nations in Europe, China, India and elsewhere are abandoning solar and wind, and building coal-fired plants.
At a Boston College commencement speech on May 19, Kerry outdid himself talking about climate change. “If we make the necessary efforts to address this challenge—and supposing I’m wrong or scientists are wrong, 97 percent of them all wrong—supposing they are, what’s the worst that can happen?” The worst is more wasted billions spent on something mankind can do nothing about and …

Antarctic Sea Ice Area Above Normal Every Day For The Past 30 Months

The world’s leading climatologist – James Hansen forecast that Antarctica would see peak sea ice loss, but Antarctic sea ice has been above normal every day for the past 30 months. arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/timeseries.south.anom.1979-2008 http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/effects/downloads/Challenge_chapter2.pdf

CLEANER AIR COULD MEAN HIGHER ELECTRIC BILLS, the current rules are expected to force power companies to shut down 68 coal plants across 20 states between 2014 and 2017,

NEW YORK (AP) -- Electricity prices are probably on their way up across much of the U.S. as coal-fired plants, the dominant source of cheap power, shut down in response to environmental regulations and economic forces. New and tighter pollution rules and tough competition from cleaner sources such as natural gas, wind and solar will lead to the closings 
of dozens of coal-burning plants across 20 states over the next three years. And many of those that stay open will need expensive retrofits.
Because of these and other factors, the Energy Department predicts retail power prices will rise 4 percent on average this year, the biggest increase since 2008. By 2020, prices are expected to climb an additional 13 percent, a forecast that does not include the costs of coming environmental rules.
The Obama administration, state governments and industry are struggling to balance this push for a cleaner environment with the need to keep the grid reliable and prevent prices from rocketing too muc…

Gore, Obama and Socialist LibDems Back on Big Lies Again

hey’re baaaaaaaack.  The people from the left, or as they say more properly in Latin, la sinistra, or ‘sinister ones’, are back at their lies, cheating, duplicity and sheer untrustworthiness.

As Jennifer G. Hickey writes online in Newsmax.com on 18 May 2014 in ‘Scientists Rebut White House Global Warming Claims’, “A group of independent scientists, economists and meteorologists has issued a pointed response to the scientific foundation of the Obama administration’s claims that humans are drastically changing the climate by burning fossil fuels.”
I am personally pleased that the Libs, the “lyin left” as we so better know them, have stopped blaming George W. Bush for all the imaginary visions these people suffer through just to not have to face the truth of their failings not only of themselves but of their dealings with the whole socio-communist Party so improperly named Democrat, a derivative of the word democracy which today is totally foreign to them. 
No, their left-minded actions…

WHEEL OF FORTUNE' HOST PAT SAJAK: 'GLOBAL WARMING ALARMISTS ARE UNPATRIOTIC RACISTS'

The 67-year-old Wheel of Fortune host tweeted a strange accusation Monday night that declares global warming activists are "unpatriotic racists."
The television host actively supports conservative political causes, and has written several articles for conservative magazine Human Events. He frequently opines about the weather on Twitter, and many view his recent tweet as an outright denial of climate change.

Sajak took to Twitter again on Tuesday after news outlets began to cover his tweet. He writes, "Sometimes it's fun to poke a stick in a hornets' nest just to hear the buzzing." http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2014/05/20/Wheel-of-Fortune-host-Pat-Sajak-says-global-warming-alarmists-are-unpatriotic-racists

Scientist On PBS: Lock Up Politicians Who Question Climate Change.

Image
Canadian geneticist David Suzuki urged Western governments to lock up politicians who question man-made climate change, telling PBS’ Bill Moyers “our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!” Suzuki appeared on “Moyers and Company” earlier this month to express his abject frustration over politicians, in both Canada and the United States, who refuse to accept the “settled science” on man-made global warming. “Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!” he asserted. “If we are in a position of being able to act, and we see something going on and we refuse to acknowledge the threat or act on it, we can be taken to court for willful blindness.” “I think that we are being willfully blind to the consequences to our children and grandchildren,” Suzuki continued. “It’s an intergenerational crime.” Moyers, a well-known climate alarmist, didn’t push back a bit — instead gently tabling the idea as impractical. “The problem is, if that shoul…

L.M.A.O The Climate Change Fundamentalists., in persuading the rest of us the sky is falling is that they keep changing their explanations. L.M.A.O

Climate change fundamentalists are predicting an apocalypse. Human depredation in the form of unbridled materialism is the cause. Any dissent from the fundamentalists’ doomsday prophesies if their radical prescriptions to save humanity and Mother Earth are not followed is regarded as heresy. 

Charge the well-funded climate change “deniers” with committing “criminal negligence” for “their willful disregard for human life,” says Lawrence Torcello, a philosophy professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After all, heretics must be punished.

Stop job-creating energy independence initiatives such as the Keystone XL pipeline, says the former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, James Hansen, which he called the “fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the planet.” Hansen was arrested during the course of a civil disobedience protest against the pipeline as he sat in front of a banner proclaiming, “Witness for Climate and Creation.” Who knew that a pipeline transport…

Climate debate not settled but thugs and bullies out in Force, Teeth Showing

So thousands of scientists disagree with the IPCC, the evidence is not convincing.

Here is more on polling. You know that the claim of the green left is that 97 % of scientists are supposed to be convinced of anthropogenic warming of a catastrophic nature requiring immediate action if the world is to be saved.
Right.

Climate Change Remains Unsettled, Say 31,072 Scientists

While the United Nations and the Obama administration assert that climate change is settled science and requires dramatic regulatory oversight, 31,072 U.S. scientists have signed the Petition Project, saying the issue remains decidedly unsettled.

"There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will in the foreseeable future cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate," the petition says.

"The purpose of the Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of 's…

Are global warming alarmists running out of ways to describe the certain destruction that will surely befall us?

Image
t seems with every passing year these religious zealots try to one-up themselves by pushing the urgency envelope – from global warming to climate change to climate shift to climate destruction to climate catastrophe to climate chaos.


I read an article on May 14 that claimed in its headline that this past “April was the second warmest ever recorded.” This obviously is supposed to scare us, and for some, who still believe this crap, it probably does. But as is usually the case with these articles meant to scare the general public, toward the end, it states that in the United States it was the 46th warmest. Now, that’s not very alarming is it? It would be like two climate scientists standing in the kitchen – one next to the oven and the other well away from it. The headline would read, “Hottest Kitchen on Record,” because the researchers used only the temperature observed by the scientist standing beside the oven. The fact is, these global warming clowns don’t really have a clue what the…
