Obama dire climate report more certain than ever
Associated Press ^ | May. 5, 2014 12:34 PM EDT | Seth Borenstein

Posted on 05/05/2014 9:57:09 AM PDT by Olog-hai

The Obama administration is more certain than ever that global warming is changing Americans’ daily lives and will worsen—conclusions that scientists will detail in a massive federal report to be released Tuesday.

Once people thought global warming was more in the future and more of an issue in other parts of the world, but the National Climate Assessment will emphasize how the United States is already paying the multibillion-dollar price for man-made climate change, said study co-author Donald Wuebbles, a climate scientist at the University of Illinois.

“We’re already seeing extreme weather and it’s happening now,” Wuebbles said Monday. “We’re seeing more heat waves, particularly in the West and in the South.” …

On the hottest days of a Texas summer, the heat records are always compared to 1924-1925. And no air conditioning back then! We are wimps compared to the Texans of old.

More than when? And less than when?

They honestly think there are enough of us that are both stupid and trusting of them that they can pull this crap to micromanage the lives of all americans.

“The Obama administration is more certain than ever that global warming is changing Americans’ daily lives and will worsen”

And the only thing that will fix it is if we pay higher taxes, give away all our liberty to the government, and buy carbon credits from al gore.

They are certain of global warming. I am certain of financial disaster due to record annual deficits. Who do you think will be proved right?

Sorry, AP, but were you talking about those D students who real scientists told to change majors to something requiring no intellect - such as politics are journalism?

Oops, that’s “politics or journalism”, not “politics are journalsm”. However, the latter does have a certain logic to it...abeit with sloppy grammar.

You’re exactly right. The degree to which “the science is settled” is directly proportional to the number of times the assertions are repeated.

Look into the stupid chicken story.

The researchers were in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can stand up to the hazards of global warming.

Yes it is affecting us big time.
By government interference in our daily lives and wasting money on useless programs.
The warming itself, if any, we can adapt to easily and with less cost than useless prevention programs.

I agree. Global warm, um, climate change is affecting my life. Today it is sunny and calm. Yesterday it was sunny and windy! The day before that...it was rainy! I can’t take all of this climate change...the pressure. Do I need a jacket...do I need an umbrella...should I turn on my windshield wipers...should I turn the heat up or down...if only my government would do something to help me!

Seriously, this has been the first spring in a while that feels and looks like -— spring. And the season before that was cold and harsh. A lot like -— winter.

Kerry made the environment and climate change a top priority at the State Department. Under Hillary the Dept. had money for green projects at their embassies but no money for security at Benghazi.

hal ogen:" Their paid anti-science “scientists” just can’t stop being dishonest and undermining science by their foolish and impudent utterances.

They are already bought and paid for through FEDGovt. grants designed to find justification for further grants.
This type of behavior is encouraged by educational institutions which are constantly looking for new funding sources
The last time these folks publicly released information about their models and statistics
they were found to be flawed , and ficticious, and not repeatable.
Science requires that tests, models, and statistics need to be repeatable in order to be considered "science".
These are funding hoars and bores .

“Climate change” is a falsely benevolent pretense for exercising government tyranny over American food and energy production.

I just visited the Australian government’s Bureau of Meteorology website the other day.That website says that Australia’s “mean” or “average” (can’t recall which) temperature has risen,nationwide,by 0.8 degrees Celsius between 1900 and 2010.I think that that’s about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit.Of course they failed to mention if there was evidence that temps had changed to the same degree before,lets say,the internal combustion energy,central heating/air conditioning and electricity.

Where is the hot spot?

No smoking hot spot

1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.

Each possible cause of global warming has a different pattern of where in the planet the warming occurs first and the most. The signature of an increased greenhouse effect is a hot spot about 10km up in the atmosphere over the tropics. We have been measuring the atmosphere for decades using radiosondes: weather balloons with thermometers that radio back the temperature as the balloon ascends through the atmosphere. They show no hot spot. Whatsoever.

If there is no hot spot then an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming. So we know for sure that carbon emissions are not a significant cause of the global warming. If we had found the greenhouse signature then I would be an alarmist again.

The question is, who will most likely financially benefit from laws that are passed to ‘fight’ this imaginary global warming threat.

Now this idiot thinks he’s a trained meteorologist.This clown can’t even forecast with any accuracy that his health care plan will function as he claims.

People that believe him are as stupid as he is.

“And the only thing that will fix it is if we pay higher taxes, give away all our liberty to the government, and buy carbon credits from al gore.”

And commit to giving trillions of our printed dollars to third world shitholes because they are “more affected” by our evil emissions, meanwhile reducing our own population to living in caves lit with candles, using bicycles for all transportation needs like China did in the 1970’s and eating gruel three times a day. (Except of course if you are a member of the ruling elite or their billionaire minions, in which case no such limits will be imposed, because after all, some pigs are more equal than other pigs.)

Such is the vision of the “Progressives” for we peasants.

Horse apples. They better bring some real data. I’ve been here a long time, and some years are warmer, and some are cooler, than others.

The real travesty is that anyone paying the least bit of attention knows their models don’t predict the past. It is pretty well documented. Why we should think their prediction of the future is worth anything is beyond me.
