Global Warming Continues Assault on US
RightWingPatriot.com ^ | January 30, 2014 | RightWingPatriot

Posted on 01/30/2014 6:26:24 PM PST by rightwingerpatriot

Global warming is an evil scourge that has played havoc across the US recently. Temperatures in my home state of Florida have plunged with the latest cold snap, forcing me to turn on my home's heater to combat the insidious freezing power of global warming. As cold as it has gotten in Florida, other parts of the South were harder hit. In Alabama, thousands of students were trapped in their schools and forced to stay overnight. The biggest spectacle took place in Atlanta, Georgia, where roads shut down as thousands of drivers were stranded. It was like watching a scene of devastation out of The Walking Dead with bumper-to-bumper traffic sitting idle in the snow. Global warming then went on interfere with air travel with over 3100 flights cancelled on Tuesday alone. All in all, a grand total of 140 million people spread throughout 34 states were under a winter weather advisory or worse. Curse you, global warming!

How do I know that global warming is behind all these arctic temperatures? Because such scientific luminaries such as Bette Midler have told me so. Midler tweeted, "If you live in The South and still believe Climate Change doesn't exist, wake up. And buy a snow shovel." While I despise the progressive left, I do have to admire their linguistic dexterity. We were told that man-made global warming was going to devastate the planet and that the science was settled. Then a funny thing happened. It seems that all the scientists who agreed that the science was settled had far-left political views that advocated statism and that they financially benefited from the global warming agenda. When asked to look at the original data that they based their research on, it was wiped out (something that no scientist ever does), and then correspondence was found showing them colluding with one another over the hysteria. Finally, real science came out and showed that temperatures had been flat for fifteen years. Suddenly, as if by magic, global warming became climate change. Now it didn't matter if it got too hot or too cold, the culprit was climate change. When your lie is exposed, then the progressive left just changes the definitions of the content of the discussion.

The truth is that global warming/climate change is essentially a cult whose adherents are anti-liberty and pro-big government. They were successful for a while convincing people of their big lie, but once huge winter storms came every year, people began to open their eyes and see the truth. Now the global warming fanatics are on the defensive, so they're constantly pushing the new narrative that climate change leads to devastating cold snaps. Practically every media outlet and leftist groups repeatedly spew this lie in order to reverse the tide of public opinion. Of course, dissent can't be tolerated so moderators of sites such as the science forum on reddit or editors of opinion pages won't even allow climate change skeptics to even voice their arguments. You just can't have an open debate when you're pushing a lie, can you?

Wasn’t it AlGore that said the ice caps would double in size and we would never have another hurricane again?

Oh. wait.......

Global warming as a MSM/progressive term has been gone for years.

It’s all about Climate Change now.

They made a very adept transition to allow any plus/minus 2 sigma weather event to be hyped as a crisis that needs govt intervention.

It was a bit warmer today, but parts of I-10 in Florida are still closed.

Global warming always forming never ending forever spending.
Climate change and carbon credit the end will always justify the means.

The greens will not die so stay alive and solarize.
Long live the climate of change. Spend with us as we re-arrange
last years data and fix the standard cost of doing nothing.

I was watching a show about Hurricane Sandy last night and caught a particularly ignorant line of reasoning that they were stating as fact.

They said that hurricane sandy was much worse due to the effects of climate change and that sea levels had risen a foot and a half OVER THE PAST 200 YEARS.

My first question was what started the sea levels to rise if it wasn’t global warming then? When did it stop being caused by something else and how did you decide it was the result of global warming. I also want to know why we never talk about the eastern seaboard subsidence and erosion I learned about in grade school? Have they magically stopped?

Reminds me of a news article a year or so ago when they announced that global warming had reduced the size of a glacier in Norway or someplace similar. Scientists found plant life that had frozen there about a thousand years ago and were excited. The mantra though was how destructive man-made global warming was in how the glacier was eroded. My thought was that the plant life existed in a warmer clime so where was the man-made global warming then? I don't remember vikings driving SUVs around. :)

Its why our educational system is working so hard to destroy real critical thinking skills. People like you and I ask problematic questions.

I live on the central Gulf Coast.

I have been boating and fishing these waters all my life.

We have a thing called tide charts. People, way smarter than me, calculate the tides. They accurately predict the comings and goings of the tides YEARS in advance.

The water levels have not changed very much in the last several hundred years.

Do the water levels change over large amounts of time? Probably. Can mankind alter them? No!

ALGORE is an enemy of the state.

How can anyone who’s watched the weather prognosticators try to get even close to what’s happening with the cold and storms this winter believe in anything like global warming??? - We’re watching the Monday weather forecast carefully because we have to drive 25 miles to the doctor for my wife then - just tonight one local Philly TV channel said we could have anything from no snow to up to 3 and a half inches on Monday, depending on the model you watch - guess we’ll not cancel the appointment quite yet - but the warmists can tell us that in fifty years the sea level will rise 6.3 inches and the temperature go up 2.7 degrees - amazing......

I was being very tongue-in-cheek as I can't help being snarky with those who think that global warming leads to polar temperatures. :)

The children of Atlanta should be so pleased that, despite the predictions of global-warmists that there would soon be a generation that knows nothing of snow, it will not be them.

But I'm sure that somewhere on the earth there must be a child somewhere that will never see snow. How very sad.

To use the term “climate change” as anything abnormal for earth is about as unscientific as you can get on the matter.

The climate - the term people use when they really mean the weather - is and always was and always has been changing since the earth was created, and the giant forces that determine actual long term changes and their “ups and downs” are larger and more influential in setting up those cycles than any input of man.

The modern human problem is that folks like the global warming alarmists are taking advantage of the short term memory - in the long life of earth - of a mere few human generations who are led to believe, in error, that what they have been accustomed to for their brief lives is, or was, some sort of “norm” and any noticable alteration of that is some sort of “unnatural” occurance.

What earth history shows is for the weather to NOT be changing over the course of time is what would NOT be natural for earth.

Many places on earth that are now desert have the evidence beneath them that they were once as “green” as anywhere else on earth, and other places on earth that are now very warm have evidence beneath and within them that they were once under mile high fields of ice, for centuries and in some places more than once before.

If there is anything to be done about actual “climate change” it is to use our ingenuity to adapt to it and where needed mitigate its affects. That will be the most effective, efficient and legitimate use of our time and resources, and immensely less wasteful to our economic lives and our health.

The Earth is getting cooler not warmer

global warming is a hoax

so they started calling it climate change

but not even 1 hurricane this year. the climate hasn’t changed .it’s actually pretty stable for the past 200 years.temps about the same, sea level the same etc.. there’s no more hurricanes, no warming, no cooling over that time.

BUT it could start cooling because of the Sun’s solar cycles slowing down.this is the first cold year of colder ones to come

is a mini ice age on the way? Scientists warn the Sun has ‘gone to sleep’ and say it could cause temperatures to plunge

2013 was due to be year of the ‘solar maximum’
Researchers say solar activity is at a fraction of what they expect
Conditions ‘very similar’ a time in 1645 when a mini ice age hit

Our local Gannett newsrag had an editorial page cartoon today depicting a buck-toothed individual (intended, I think, to portray a hayseed from flyover country), who said this: “Since it’s cold outside my door, global warming can’t be happening.” Then in a following panel: “And since it’s flat as far as I can see, the Earth is flat.”

No agenda here! < /sarc >
