L.M.A.O Global Warming jihadist doing the Global Warming Jihad, So Again The UN Has Renamed Global Warming/Climate Change Again, So For Global Warming jihadist Now it Back to Climate Disruption? Global Warming jihadist are, Brainless, Mindless,Idiotic, Imbecilic, ridiculous, Inane, Empty-headed; Informalhalfwitted, Dimwitted, Dumb, Moronic
When "global warming" data was exposed as a fraud a few years ago, big government control freaks changed its name to climate change, enabling the anti-capitalist movement to blame pretty much any natural disaster on the phenomenon and justify limiting the use of fossil fuel energy. Polling shows that not only is global warming/climate change not a major concern for most Americans, but that the use of the different terms doesn't make a difference in peaking a person's interest on the issue.
Now, the UN is changing the name of
global warming, climate change again.
Same propaganda, different name.
President Obama is at the UN in New York Tuesday to give a speech about climate disruption/change/warming.
CNSNews.com) – Climate change may be “the most serious challenge we face on the planet,” Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday, saying people don’t need to accept his or Al Gore’s or the U.N.’s word on the matter – just “listen to Mother Nature, who is screaming at us about it.”
Addressing a meeting in New York opening a week of U.N. climate-related events, Kerry said there was still time to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, “but it is absolutely imperative that we decide to move and to act now.”
“You don’t have to take my word for it. You don’t have to Al Gore’s word for it,” he said. “You don’t have to take the IPCC’s word and the Framework Convention – all those people who are sounding the alarm bells. You can just wake up pretty much any day and listen to Mother Nature, who is screaming at us about it.”
Kerry compared climate change to terrorism, poverty and the spread of non-conventional weapons and said it could be argued that climate change was the most serious issue of all.
“When you think about terrorism, which we think about a lot today; poverty, which is linked obviously to the levels of terror that we see in the world today; and, of course, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction – all of these are challenges that don’t know any borders.
Climate change, he said, “ranks right up there with every single one of the rest of those challenges. You can make a powerful argument that it may be, in fact, the most serious challenge we face on the planet because it’s about the planet itself.
“And today, more than 97 percent of all the peer-reviewed studies ever made confirm that.”
Kerry expressed frustration at congressional opposition to the administration’s climate initiatives, saying “Common sense is not particularly common right now.”
He added that President Obama had acted unilaterally on the issue – a reference to the Climate Action Plan unveiled in a speech at Georgetown University in June 2013 – “because we don’t have a Congress that yet completely buys into it – and we have one house particularly that not only doesn’t but fights back against the science.”
The high-profile meetings at the U.N. this week, including a leaders’ summit hosted by secretary-general Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday, aim to provide momentum ahead of a major U.N. conference in Paris, France in November 2015, when a global agreement on cutting emissions of “greenhouse gases” – carbon dioxide and other substances blamed for climate change – is meant to be adopted.
Kerry on Sunday convened a group of foreign ministers to discuss the issue – a first ever meeting on climate held at that level.
He told Monday’s event that the ministers had “agreed that we would meet again next year to hold all the nations that were there accountable, and to measure ourselves about what the targets are we set as we go into Paris next year.”
Climate on the ‘front burner’ in foreign relations
Kerry, who championed the global warming cause during his almost three decade-long Senate career, stressed the top priority he was giving the matter as secretary of state.
“I’ve also set a directive to every single one of our 275 missions, embassies, consulates, that the chiefs of mission are to put this issue on the front burner in all of our interventions with our – with the host countries, wherever they may be,” he said.
“Well before Paris, we need to make sure that the major economies of the world are publicly putting forward their mitigation goals, and the United States needs to do that before March of next year, and we are committed to doing that.”
Kerry said the agreement to be reached in Paris would be the most important one since the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the global treaty that required industrialized countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The 2015 agreement may also be a “demarcation point,” indicating whether or not the international community has the chance of solving climate change, or not, he said.
The rise in temperatures along the U.S. West Coast during the past century is almost entirely the result of natural forces — not human emissions of greenhouse gases, according to a major new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Northeast Pacific coastal warming since 1900 is often ascribed to anthropogenic greenhouse forcing, whereas multidecadal temperature changes are widely interpreted in the framework of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which responds to regional atmospheric dynamics. This study uses several independent data sources to demonstrate that century-long warming around the northeast Pacific margins, like multidecadal variability, can be primarily attributed to changes in atmospheric circulation. It presents a significant reinterpretation of the region’s recent climate change origins, showing that atmospheric conditions have changed substantially over the last century, that these changes are not likely related to historical anthropogenic and natural radiative forcing, and that dynamical mechanisms of interannual and multidecadal temperature variability can also apply to observed century-long trends.From a Seattle Times newspaper story: (h/t Dale Hartz)
The vast majority of coastal temperature increases since 1900 are the result of changes in winds over the eastern Pacific Ocean, the authors found. But they could find no evidence that those weather patterns were themselves being influenced by the human burning of fossil fuels.
Since the ocean is the biggest driver of temperature changes along the coast, the authors tracked land and sea surface temperatures there going back 113 years. They found that virtually all of the roughly 1 degree Celsius average temperature increase could be explained by changes in air circulation.
“It’s a simple story, but the results are very surprising: We do not see a human hand in the warming of the West Coast,” said co-author Nate Mantua, with NOAA Fisheries Southwest Fisheries Science Center. “That is taking people by surprise, and may generate some blowback.”
Atmospheric controls on northeast Pacific temperature variability and change, 1900–2012
James A. Johnstone and Nathan J. Mantua
Over the last century, northeast Pacific coastal sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and land-based surface air temperatures (SATs) display multidecadal variations associated with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, in addition to a warming trend of ∼0.5–1 °C. Using independent records of sea-level pressure (SLP), SST, and SAT, this study investigates northeast (NE) Pacific coupled atmosphere–ocean variability from 1900 to 2012, with emphasis on the coastal areas around North America. We use a linear stochastic time series model to show that the SST evolution around the NE Pacific coast can be explained by a combination of regional atmospheric forcing and ocean persistence, accounting for 63% of nonseasonal monthly SST variance (r = 0.79) and 73% of variance in annual means (r = 0.86). We show that SLP reductions and related atmospheric forcing led to century-long warming around the NE Pacific margins, with the strongest trends observed from 1910–1920 to 1940. NE Pacific circulation changes are estimated to account for more than 80% of the 1900–2012 linear warming in coastal NE Pacific SST and US Pacific northwest (Washington, Oregon, and northern California) SAT. An ensemble of climate model simulations run under the same historical radiative forcings fails to reproduce the observed regional circulation trends. These results suggest that natural internally generated changes in atmospheric circulation were the primary cause of coastal NE Pacific warming from 1900 to 2012 and demonstrate more generally that regional mechanisms of interannual and multidecadal temperature variability can also extend to century time scales.http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2014/09/16/1318371111.abstract

NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce…Veteran Meteorologist: “Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse” -
- See more at: http://notrickszone.com/2014/09/21/noaa-devolving-to-an-orwellian-political-farce-veteran-meteorologist-fox-is-guarding-the-henhouse/#sthash.XdhviVm6.dpuf
People’s Climate March’ Al Gore freak show invades New York - Marxists, idiots, and hypocrites on parade?
New York is no stranger to infestation. If you’ve spent ten minutes in the city, the odds are you’ve had some kind of run in with its legendary “cockroach and rat problem.” Over the weekend, though, the Big Apple faced a new sort of vermin - namely, Marxists, ex-hippies, Gaia worshippers, and at least one hypocrite movie star.
This weekend, you see, was “The People’s Climate March.” Thousands took to the streets of Manhattan to wander around, carry signs, and yap about how they want “climate justice.”
As usual with these sorts of events, the crowd was made up of a variety of different demographics. There three big ones were hardcore Marxists, climate change true-believers, and elderly hippies who feel a need to glom on to whatever protest marches past their living room window.
Just like at the occupy protests; no one at this event really seems to know exactly what they want. They only know that they don’t like what they have, and they’re damn sure not interested in whatever it is they think they’re about to get. What that is remains a mystery.
So, Reason magazine sent a microphone and camera out into the madness in an attempt to figure out just what the protesters were after. The results were about what you’d expect:
So they’re demanding something, they just can’t quite figure out what it is.
That’s probably not surprising, given that some of their favorite high-profile attendees can’t seem figure out if they’re protesters, or just a couple of globe- trotting, carbon producing, millionaire hypocrites.
Here’s a bearded Leonardo DiCaprio marching among the hoi poloi.
Leo is an expert on Arctic ice because he was murdered by an iceberg in a movie once. Recently, he’s more famous for his regular use of private jets and his World Cup trip aboard “Topaz.” It’s a $678 million dollar mega-yacht owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.
Remember, kiddies. Carbon is bad unless it’s produced by your private jet, and oil is bad when it comes from Canada. UAE oil buys really big yachts on which you can party with supermodels, so that’s a different story.
Also milling about was paranoia-advocate and “climate change” profiteer Al Gore.
Al used to be famous for being a former Vice President and failed Presidential candidate. Then he had a brief career in science fiction films. Lately, however, he’s better known for his decidedly “not-green” collection of mansions, which have an “inconvenient” tendency to rack up utility bills in excess of $30,000 a year. Just prior to his split from Tipper, the Gores owned four homes such as the one pictured below:
In fairness to Al, he evidently installed a couple or solar panels, and we’re sure they probably provide some percentage of the electricity required to heat that beautiful pool.
As always, we’re not suggesting that wealth is bad. We like wealth. We’re big fans of success. However, the fact is that these multi-millionaires are marching in an anti-capitalist rally while singing songs about the environment. ...All while enjoying a lavish life of supposedly destructive private jets, mega-yachts, and multiple homes that consume enough power to light a small neighborhood.
The hypocrisy of their involvement is painfully obvious - but what else should should we expect from an environmental movement that can’t be bothered to pick up its own trash?
Somehow this doesn’t seem too green to me #trashoverload #climatemarch pic.twitter.com/vNaQsfmjo0
A Mexican ecologist has blown the whistle on the corruption, lies and incompetence of the wind industry - and on the massive environmental damage it causes in the name of saving the planet.Patricia Mora, a research professor in coastal ecology and fisheries science at the National Institute of Technology in Mexico, has been studying the impact of wind turbines in the Tehuantepec Isthmus in southern Mexico, an environmentally sensitive region which has the highest concentration of wind farms in Latin America.
The turbines, she says in an interview with Truthout, have had a disastrous effect on local flora and fauna.
When a project is installed, the first step is to "dismantle" the area, a process through which all surrounding vegetation is eliminated. This means the destruction of plants and sessilities - organisms that do not have stems or supporting mechanisms - and the slow displacement over time of reptiles, mammals, birds, amphibians, insects, arachnids, fungi, etc. Generally we perceive the macro scale only, that is to say, the large animals, without considering the small and even microscopic organisms...Then there is the damage caused by wind turbine noise:
....After the construction is finalized, the indirect impact continues in the sense that ecosystems are altered and fragmented. As a result, there is a larger probability of their disappearance, due to changes in the climate and the use of soil.
There is abundant information about the harm caused by the sound waves produced by wind turbines. These sound waves are not perceptible to the human ear, which makes them all the more dangerous. They are also low frequency sound waves and act upon the pineal and nervous systems, causing anxiety, depression (there is a study from the United States that found an elevated suicide rate in regions with wind farms), migraines, dizziness and vomiting, among other symptoms.But the wind turbine operators are able to get away with it because the system is so corrupt.
What happens is absolute corruption. I have to admit that generally there are "agreements" behind closed doors between the consultants or research centers and the government offices before the studies are conducted. They fill out forms with copied information (and sometimes badly copied), lies or half truths in order to divert attention from the real project while at the same time complying with requirements on paper. Unfortunately, consultants sometimes take advantage of high unemployment and hire inexperienced people or unemployed career professionals without proper titles. Sometimes the consultants even coerce them into modifying the data.Though Professor Mora is talking specifically about Mexico, what she says applies equally well to supposedly more transparent democracies such as Britain, Australia, the US, Canada and Denmark. The wind industry is necessarily one of the most corrupt enterprises on earth because it depends for its entire existence on government favours, backhanders, dishonest environmental impact assessments and on regulators turning a blind eye to the known health problems caused by wind turbine noise. Without crony capitalism, the wind industry simply would not exist.
Research centers, pressured by a lack of funding, accept these studies. It is well known that scientists recognized by CONACYT (National Counsel on Science and Technology) accept gifts from these companies, given that they need money to buy equipment for their laboratories and to fill their pocketbooks to maintain their lifestyles. This is the extent of the corruption. Upon reviewing these studies, it is clear that the findings are trash, sometimes even directly copied from other sources online. These studies tend to focus on the "benefits of the project" and do not include rigorous analysis.
The Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) does follow-up to the studies, but everything can be negotiated. The bureaucrats have the last word.
Here are some links to a few of Breitbart's hits on the subject. As I can personally testify from a decade spent covering this scandal, there are few forms of life on the planet lower than those parasites who make their fortune out of bird-chomping, bat-slicing eco-crucifixes.

For snow to fall, all of the layers of air that the snow falls through once it leaves the cloud must be sub-freezing.
|Laws of physics |
Water is nearly 800 times denser than air and much heavier
in Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, Alice says she cannot believe impossible things. The Queen of Hearts surprised: “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Therefore, suppose we compare two events:
- Global warming advocates argue that the oceans are absorbing the extra heat that their computer models predicted, which has mysteriously vanished. The missing heat over the last 18 years has been going into the oceans.
- Yet, the Arctic Sea Ice Cap aound the North Pole has grown by 43% since 2012. As confirmed by satellites from orbit, the Arctic ice pack has grown by 1.715 million square kilometers in the last two years, as reported in England’s Daily Mail. That is the size of the truly massive state of Alaska.
- So, might we ask a question? Yes, you with your hand up.
Note that ice in the Arctic is free-floating. There are no landmasses in the Arctic, around the North Pole (except the Northern tips of Canada, Russia, and Alaska). The massive continent of Antartica surrounds the South Pole. But in the North, the ice is soaking in ocean water.
The Economist confidently waffles that “The mystery of the pause in global warming may have been solved,” in “Davy Jones’s heat locker”. The oceans “may be” absorbing the warming.
But wait: Why didn’t the oceans absorb the previous warming first in the past? Why was there a 20-year period of warming without the oceans sponging any of it up back then?
And what could be more persuasive than a fact that “may have been” found -- but, perhaps not? Tell me what “may have been” discovered, and I will follow you anywhere. (Sarcasm mode.) But this argument is now dominant in the mainstream news media, as the American Thinker analyzed in “The Economist Strains to Salvage AGW Theory”
Oh, but there is a third argument: They say that shifting wind patterns called a “Polar Vortex” have pushed freezing air farther South than usual. Recent freezing winters and cold weather snaps should not make us question their warnings of global warming, argue the global warming advocates.
Obviously, shifting cold air southward requires warmer air to move in behind in another location to replace it. A vacuum or low pressure must be filled in, by pulling warmer air up from the south.
So if a “Polar Vortex” pattern cools North America, then warm, southern air pulled up behind must be warming the Arctic region. Yet we are seeing a 43% increase in Arctic ice.
People who are well-informed know that the global warming superstition is based exclusively on computer models. Those models are essentially video games, like virtual reality. You may have heard the saying “garbage in, garbage out.” Speculation put on a computer is still speculation.
Normally we have real-world evidence of a scientific hypothesis. In that case, statistical models or computer models can help us analyze the real-world evidence.
Here, however, man-made global warming is based on nothing but a fantasy enhanced by computers. Remember: the question is whether human industrial activity is causing global climate change, or whether natural variations such as with the Earth’s orbit are to blame. The issue is not whether the Earth’s temperature varies, but whether humans are causing it.
So when events in the real world dramatically contradict what the global warming computer models predicted, they have nothing left. If the models are wrong, the entire concept is wrong. This is different from models which build on real-world evidence.
On a similar point, are we forgetting basic high school biology? Carbon dioxide (CO2) gets converted into oxygen. It doesn’t stay as CO2. While snorkeling in the Bahamas for badly-needed exercise, I recently witnessed photosynthesis in action:
Small bubbles floated up everywhere in the water. As far as the eye could see, streams of bubbles rose up from the sea grass as I swam along the Bahama flats in the Abacos.
It’s called photosynthesis. Plants convert sunlight and carbon dioxide into energy and complex carbohydrates using chlorophyll as a catalyst. They release oxygen.
The streams of bubbles floating up through the water are the oxygen from miles of sea grass. We cannot see the oxygen produced on land. Under water, you can see it happening right in front of your eyes.
The sun was shining. Miles upon miles of sea grass were busily converting carbon dioxide into oxygen. Those plants are sucking carbon dioxide out of the water every minute, every hour, all day long, every day, with no vacations. About every foot in every direction, there was a line of bubbles. Every bubble was followed by another in the same column about eight feet behind.
Just the Bahama Island flats alone are over 2,400 square miles. All that sea grass is sucking up carbon dioxide and converting it into oxygen at a fantastic, staggering rate. Compared with the thousands of bubbles per minute I could see within a few hundred yards, quadrillions (thousands of trillions) of such bubbles throughout the flats are flowing every minute from carbon dioxide converted into oxygen.
Worldwide, the oceans are teeming with the most abundant life forms on the planet: free-floating algae and other phytoplankton. These are plants. (Zooplankton are tiny animals which eat phytoplankton).
All that algae and other phytoplankton are sucking up mind-boggling quantities of carbon dioxide worldwide every second. The oceans cover three-quarters of the Earth’s surface. The quantity of plant life in the oceans dwarfs the amount of plants on land.
Life-giving, perfectly clean carbon dioxide is what fuels plants. The more carbon dioxide available, the faster plants busily convert CO2 back into oxygen. That is the cycle of life. Increased carbon dioxide causes plants to flourish, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide.
The superstition that humans are causing global warming is collapsing and entering the mockery phase.
The United Nations, eager to grab money and power as the global regulator (and taxer) of carbon emissions, is sponsoring a “climate summit” on September 21 in hopes of capturing the attention of heads of state coming to New York for the UN General Assembly. Unfortunately for the scare-mongers, Barack Obama will be fairly lonely when it comes to heads of state of world powers.
The UN is claiming “about 120 heads of state” will attend, but when it gets down to particulars, the significant powers, aside from Obama, are largely otherwise occupied. Watts Up With That? reports:
The imminent climate summit in New York is rapidly turning into an utter embarrassment for President Obama and UN Secretary General Bank Ki-Moon, in addition to becoming a bit of a punishment round for national deputy leaders.
Aussie PM Tony Abbott today defended his decision not to hop on an earlier flight to America, so he could attend the UN climate conference in New York, because he has more important matters to attend to, such as running the country.
Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi have also indicated they likely won’t attend the summit.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has indicated he will not be attending.https://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/stephen-harper-to-skip-un-climate-summit-183946998.html
Even Angela Merkel, President of über green Germany, will not be attending the UN climate summit. http://notrickszone.com/2014/05/26/merkel-snubs-new-york-ban-ki-moon-climate-conference-burying-the-global-climate-agreement/Nevertheless, true believers in the media and green front organizations are going all out in trying to whip up enthusiasm for a movement that is stumbling badly in the wake of reality’s stubborn refusal to conform to the predictions of the doomsayers for the last 17 years. The Louisville Courier-Journal breathlessly reports on Kentuckians being bussed to a march in New York City to coincide with the summit.
Two bus-loads of people from Kentucky are headed to New York City this weekend, where they plan to join what's being billed as the largest climate change march in history on Sunday. (snip)
It's all meant to support a United Nations Climate Summit on Sept. 21, where world leaders and as many as 120 heads-of-state are expected to gather and announce plans for reducing carbon emissions. U.N. members are working toward a new climate agreement and sustainable development goals to be concluded next year. (snip)
When a source uses “as many as” twice in a short article, it usually means a brave effort to make the number look big.As many as 100,000 marchers are expected in New York at the People's Climate March.
Bur what no propagandist, march, or "summit" can disguise is that the climate theories have failed to explain the real world phenomena of the last 17+ years, and that those who want to grab control over economic life are going to be in need of a new excuse for their power-grabs pretty soon, unless the weather turns around.

It appears that reality is not cooperating with the myth that man-made CO2 is causing global warming. Recent satellite images show that both the Arctic and the Antarctic sea ice have dramatically increased in size and thickness.
Despite Al Gore’s 2007 apocalyptic predictions that in just 7 more years the Arctic ice cap will be “completely gone,” it has instead dramatically increased by 43% in size since 2012. The North Pole ice cap grew by 1.715 million square kilometers, an area the size of Alaska, in the last two years. In solidarity, the South Pole ice cap has also reached record-breaking levels, and not stands at 20 million square kilometers, the highest level since records began.
Al Gore (2007): "The [Arctic] ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as 7 years from now."
ARCTIC Ice Cap: Ice sheet growth has been dramatic. The North Pole ice cover has reached 5.62 million square kilometers. “This was the highest level recorded on that date since 2006 and represents an increase of 1.71 million square kilometres over the past two years” an impressive 43 percent.
ANTARCTIC Sea Ice Cap: “Scientists have declared a new record has been set for the extent of Antarctic sea ice since records began. Satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometers covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent. That is roughly double the size of the Antarctic continent and about three times the size of Australia.”
Our planet’s actual climate continues to expose the fraud and junk science that Al Gore and other Global Warming cult followers have been spreading over the last few decades. Scientific observations show that there’s been no increased global warming for the last 17 years. None of the hysterical weather predictions and doomsday climate scenarios Al Gore and his minions promised us ever materialized.
Of course, it may be that our weather satellites have been compromised by the Koch brothers and both the North and South Poles are now part of the vast right-wing conspiracy. After all, in Al Gore’s universe anything is possible!
