Obama Says Global Warming Is a 'Major' Problem, But ISIS 'Not an Existential Threat'

Image
CNSNews.com) - "Groups like ISIL can't destroy us, they can't defeat us," President Obama told reporters in Argentina on Wednesday. "They're not an existential threat to us," he said.

A few sentences later, he described climate change as a "major" problem.

On a day when morgues and hospitals in Brussels were still trying to identify the dead and the grievously injured, Americans among them, Obama described the terrorists as "vicious killers and murderers who have perverted one of the world's great religions, and their primary power, in addition to killing lives, is to strike fear in our societies, to disrupt our societies."

So-called "greenhouse gas effect" of CO2 does not exist at all! “Carbon Pollution” Claptrap?

Image
When will the governments (and their all too numerous “useful idiots” of the media) state the unadulterated truth to the people? Carbon (like in wood, coal, oil, natural gas) is an energy source—not a “pollutant” Presumably, any government has the right to levy a tax on anything they want. In that sense, a tax on “carbon” or any energy source would be no different than a tax on food or clothing; it’s all coming out of your pocket. However, the right to levy taxes does not give government a right to call “carbon” (by their interpretation really meaning “carbon dioxide”) as a form of “pollution.”
Carbon Tax Whether Canada’s recently elected Prime Minister or any of the country’s provincial premiers think that a “carbon tax” is a good thing or not is all irrelevant. Governments always have the option to place levies and taxes on anything they choose. Whether the people they claim to represent and work for will find such charges acceptable or not can be gauged on the outcome of the next g…

Obama-Backed Solar Plant Could Be Shut Down For Not Producing Enough Energy

Image
California regulators may force a massive solar thermal power plant in the Mojave Desert to shut down after years of under-producing electricity — not to mention the plant was blinding pilots flying over the area and incinerating birds.

The Ivanpah solar plant could be shut down if state regulators don’t give it more time to meet electricity production promises it made as part of its power purchase agreements with utilities, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Ivanpah, which got a $1.6 billion loan guarantee from the Obama administration, only produced a fraction of the power state regulators expected it would.

Germany mulls ‘mammoth’ 95% cut in emissions by 2050

Image
Germany is drawing up an action plan to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 95% from 1990 levels by 2050.

Drawing on a public consultation launched last year, the environment ministry expects to present the proposal to cabinet before the summer recess.

It is a “mammoth task with profound implications,” environment minister Barbara Hendricks said at a conference in Berlin. “No sector will be excluded from this transition.”

The long term target is at the higher end of the 80-95% range agreed across the EU, based on holding global temperature rise to 2C.

Hendricks stressed the importance of the aspirational 1.5C limit on global warming agreed at last year’s UN climate talks in Paris.

“There are places in the world where the extent of global warming can mean the difference between survival and destruction,” she said.

No Global Warming For 58 Years: What The Government Is Hiding

Image
Junk Science: NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration seemed eager in January to declare that 2015 was the hottest year on record. But they left out data that tell a somewhat different story. When comparing temperatures, it would seem instructive to include a lengthy timeline. That’s not what happened, though, when NASA and NOAA came together to scare the public with their announcement, according to a skeptical website. “In their ‘hottest year ever’ press briefing, NOAA included this graph, which stated that they have a 58-year-long radiosonde temperature record. But they only showed the last 37 years in the graph,” says Real Science. Why would NOAA do such a thing? Because the fuller story contradicts the man-made global warming narrative. The government was “hiding the rest of the data,” says Real Science, which “showed as much pre-1979 cooling as the post-1979 warming.” Indeed, when temperature data going back to 1957 are attached to the front of the 1979-2015 …

Cruz: As President, I’d prosecute Hillary on e-mail server if Lynch takes a pass

Image
Does this beat four years of Supreme Court nominations when it comes to choosing the nominee for the Republican Party? Ted Cruz has to hope so. Stumping through Florida, Cruz told Sean Hannity at a rally interview to be broadcast tonight that if Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch aren’t up for prosecuting Hillary Clinton in the e-mail scandal, he certainly will be:
Appearing during an Orlando rally that also served as an interview to air on Fox News’s “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity asked Cruz if he’d continue to go after Clinton.
“Let’s say that the FBI makes a criminal referral to the Justice Department and it is ignored. And you become president, the statute of limitations had not passed — would you aggressively go after Hillary Clinton if the FBI believes she committed felonies?” Hannity said.
“Absolutely yes, and there is a principle here that matters,” Cruz said.
“This country was founded on the principle that no one is above the law, and whether it is the Clintons or whet…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New Report Says Science Can Estimate Influence of Climate Change on Some Types of Extreme Events WASHINGTON — It is now possible to estimate the influence of climate change on some types of extreme events, such as heat waves, drought, and heavy precipitation, says a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The relatively new science of extreme event attribution has advanced rapidly in the past decade owing to improvements in the understanding of climate and weather mechanisms and the analytical methods used to study specific events, but more research is required to increase its reliability, ensure that results are presented clearly, and better understand smaller scale and shorter duration weather extremes such as hurricanes and thunderstorms, said the committee that conducted the study and wrote the report. “An increasingly common question after an extreme we…

Claim: Higher ozone, lower humidity levels associated with dry eye disease? Really? More Liberal Bull Shit Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) disease can occur in anyone, but people 50 years of age or older are at greatest risk of developing it.

Who Gets Chronic Dry Eye, and Why Do They Get It? Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) disease can occur in anyone, but people 50 years of age or older are at greatest risk of developing it. While Chronic Dry Eye is more common in women, it also occurs in men.
In many people, Chronic Dry Eye can be caused by or associated with:
Growing olderChronic Dry Eye disease is more common in people 50 years of age or older Hormonal changesChronic Dry Eye disease is associated with hormonal changes, which are very common among women who are experiencing menopause or who are postmenopausal InflammationChronic Dry Eye disease may involve inflammation: Inflammation may affect the glands, which can decrease tear production Inflammation can also affect the glands’ ability to create and maintain the lipid layer, or top layer, of the tear film. The lipid layer slows tear evaporation Other conditions Chronic Dry Eye may be associated with other eye or health conditions. Some o…

Claim: Higher ozone, lower humidity levels associated with dry eye disease? Really? More Liberal Bull Shit , Dry eye can be a side effect of some medications, including antihistamines, nasal decongestants, tranquilizers, certain blood pressure medicines, Parkinson’s medications, birth control pills and anti-depressants.

Facts About Dry Eye | National Eye InstituteWhat are the causes of dry eye?Dry eye can be a temporary or chronic condition:
Dry eye can be a side effect of some medications, including antihistamines, nasal decongestants, tranquilizers, certain blood pressure medicines, Parkinson’s medications, birth control pills and anti-depressants. Skin disease on or around the eyelids can result in dry eye. Diseases of the glands in the eyelids, such as meibomian gland dysfunction, can cause dry eye. Dry eye can occur in women who are pregnant. Women who are on hormone replacement therapy may experience dry eye symptoms. Women taking only estrogen are 70 percent more likely to experience dry eye, whereas those taking estrogen and progesterone have a 30 percent increased risk of developing dry eye. Dry eye can also develop after the refractive surgery known as LASIK. These symptoms generally last three to six months, but may last longer in some cases. Dry eye can result from chemical and the…

Greenhouse gas ‘bookkeeping’ turned on its head
CARNEGIE INSTITUTION
Washington, D.C.–For the first time scientists have looked at the net balance of the three major greenhouse gases–carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide–for every region of Earth’s landmasses. They found surprisingly, that human-induced emissions of methane and nitrous oxide from ecosystems overwhelmingly surpass the ability of the land to soak up carbon dioxide emissions, which makes the terrestrial biosphere a contributor to climate change. The results published in the March 10, 2016, Nature, revises our understanding of how human activity contributes to global warming.

Co-author Anna Michalak of Carnegie’s Department of Global Ecology remarked, “Typically we think of land as a net ‘sink’ of carbon dioxide. But we found that the sign of the human-induced impact is reversed if we also take into account methane and nitrous oxide.”

Claim: Shipwrecks, tree rings reveal Caribbean hurricanes in buccaneer era? So Your Telling Me That In 1492 Christopher Columbus did not deal with Caribbean Hurricanes Real?? Were Are The Recored For The Vatican, You think They Have Them?

On August 3, 1492, Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain, with three small ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina. On October 12, the expedition reached land, probably Watling Island in the Bahamas. Later that month, Columbus sighted Cuba

Shipwrecks, tree rings reveal Caribbean hurricanes in buccaneer era
UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA

Records of Spanish shipwrecks combined with tree-ring records show the period 1645 to 1715 had the fewest Caribbean hurricanes since 1500, according to new University of Arizona-led research. The study is the first to use shipwrecks as a proxy for hurricane activity.

The researchers found a 75 percent reduction in the number of Caribbean hurricanes from 1645-1715, a time with little sunspot activity and cool temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere.

“We’re the first to use shipwrecks to study hurricanes in the past,” said lead author Valerie Trouet, an associate professor in t…

Scientists Finally Admit That Al Gore Climate Models Are Failing To Predict Global Warming

Image
A group of scientists recently put out a new study confirming the 15-year “hiatus” in global warming. That study made headlines, but what went largely unnoticed was a major admission made by the paper’s authors: the climate models were wrong.

“There is this mismatch between what the climate models are producing and what the observations are showing,” John Fyfe, Canadian climate modeler and lead author of the new paper, told Nature. “We can’t ignore it.”

“Reality has deviated from our expectations – it is perfectly normal to try and understand this difference,” Ed Hawkins, co-author of the study and United Kingdom climate scientist, echoed in a blog post.

This is a huge admission by climate scientists and a big victory for skeptics of man-made global warming who have for years been pointing to a mismatch between climate model predictions and actual temperature observations.


Overall, the paper is an admission by prominent members of the ‘mainstream’ scientific community t…
