Climate change heats up again (LAUGH ALERT)
Chicago Tribune ^ | July 11, 2010 | Clarence the Crosseyed Page

Posted on 07/11/2010 9:35:39 AM PDT by Chi-townChief

Here's a question to the global warming deniers who sarcastically called me a dope during last winter's back-to-back-to-back blizzards on the East Coast: Is it hot enough for you now?

As temperatures topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit, breaking records in the nation's capital, and the pavement turned into a skillet, my thoughts raced back to the frigid days of last winter's "snow-pocalypse."

Those were the days, you may recall, when Sen. James Inhofe, a proud Oklahoma Republican friend of the oil industry, and his family built an igloo on Capitol Hill and christened it "Al Gore's New Home." I might now suggest a "new home" for Inhofe: an air-conditioned doghouse powered by solar panels.

But I would be scientifically wrong to make that suggestion, just as Inhofe and other deniers of climate change were wrong last winter when they suggested that any single weather event, whether it is a blizzard or a heat wave, offers evidence of climate change.

Ya gotta admire the tenacity of these Global Warming Suckers like Clarence here - they're really trying to hand in there. I can imagine Page excitedly telling his fellow Global Warming Gestapo, "Do you know that temperatures have risen 80 degrees in just the last 6 months!!!"

The Dems are going to try to push cap & trade thru in the lame duck Congress.

Even the public schools I attended taught me that, in the northern hemisphere, it’s cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

I have been driven from my sailboat in Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island by overpowering heat in the last three hours.
BIG DEAL!!! My log shows that at least once in the last four out of five years the same thing has happened. Exception was LAST summer....weather stunk.
I looked up the “strange occurrence” it is called SUMMER.

Well at least they are pushing this fraud in the SUMMER instead of in the WINTER.

Looks like the author is confusing ‘WEATHER’ with ‘CLIMATE’...

Translation: A hot summer day is a good reason to implement a socialist command economy.

You have to at least admire them for their audacity.

Perfect Clarence. Just perfect. In another few months it will be -30 here. Get a clue, numbnutz, I'm from North Dakota and I'm all for global warming.

Regardless, that is far more in the hands of God than humans, 'cause we're just along for the ride.

It has been unseasonably cool here in the Pacific Northwest and LA just set a record for low temperature (since 1926). As usual, you can find a warm spot and a cool spot but only one gets widespread news coverage.

Spot reports are meaningless but thankfully most Americans have caught onto the progressives fraud that congress wants to pass.

The climate change people have lost their audience, even Gore's sexual dalliances & divorce (and being compared to John Edwards..what no paternity suit yet?) have muddied his name as any spokesman of anything.

Some others have or will retire, as in state supported Federally funded Natural Resources. However the World Bank has just approved $4.9-million grant for climate change adaptation projectssupported with $40.45 million co-financing from the Participatory Irrigation Development Project (PIDP) and another US$10 million from the Environment and Natural Resources Management Project (ENRMP), two ongoing government projects which are also financed by the World Bank.

Clarence;

Its unfortunate that anyone has been sarcastic with you. Allow me to be the first to be straight-forward and sincerely call you a dope without being sarcastic in any sort of way.

BTW Clarence yes, in this hemisphere, global warming does indeed occur twice per year. Its called summer. Once per year in the Northern hemisphere and once per year in the Southern hemisphere.

Remember: global warming fanatics vote for Democrat. They are real suckers for counter productive ideas. Besides spending billions on unworkable alternative fuel schemes and global warming research (grants to academics who exaggerate the evidence to line their pockets), these are the same folks who gave us:

mortgages for people who can't afford them as a way of being socially noble, high taxes that destroy jobs and cause companies to re-locate, perpetual welfare that rewarded single motherhood, a US president bowing to foreign monarchs.

Is there nothing these clowns won't believe in as long as it trashes our country?

Ummmmmm......do these idiots understand that during the summer.....it’s hot? Back in the days prior to Los Angeles geting all the water they needed to survive, temperatures would get up to 135 degrees F. Even today, in the Fresno, Bakersfield area, 115 is not unheard of.

It’s actually been unseasonably cool and overcast in Southern California, Clarence, so I’m not sure I understand your point.

LOL. I have told people that I believe in global warming AND global cooling. It happens daily and seasonally. Both happen due to the tilt of the earth, and due to sunspots.

Lol, I went to a Walter Reed Freep a few years ago in Washington, and in March it was pretty bitter, sleet, snow, rain, etc.

We began to chant:

“What do we want?”

“GLOBAL WARMING!”

“When do we want it?”

“NOW!”

NOT ONCE HAVE I HEARD THE FOLLOWING ANSWERS TO SOME SIMPLE QUESTIONS:

How would you fix global warming?
How would you get the temperature just right?
What is the right temperature?
What is the plan to correct the temperature if you are wrong?

When someone can give me these answers with proof I will start listening. Until then, STFU you stupid Marxists.

The media whores are all in on the scam, so what choice do they have? They look like fools due to Climategate. A brief stretch of hot weather during summer is no evidence of global warming.

"Do you know that temperatures have risen 80 degrees in just the last 6 months!!!"

What he probably doesn't realize is that global average temperatures have cooled 4 degrees (C) in the last 6 months. Happens every year as we go from perihelion during our winter to aphelion during our summer.

Make that seasonal global cooling and long term global cooling (see my previous post).

But last week, as Washington boiled in tropical heat and humidity, the British scientists at the center of that "scandal" were cleared by a six-month British government inquiry into the affair.

But last week, as Washington boiled in tropical heat and humidity, the British scientists at the center of that scandal were "cleared" by a six-month British government inquiry into the affair.

If you google "Climategate whitewash" you will find a plethora of information about how sick the scandal truly was, and to what lengths vested government interests will go to try to rehabilitate the "global warming" scam. There are literally trillions of taxpayer dollars hanging in the balance, and the politicians and their connected keepers remain desperate to enrich themselves - - they were so close just a year ago!

It is only natural that Page would love the idea of eternal, wanton government confiscation of limitless $trillions$ from hard-working white taxpayers in order to fund reparations and the expansion of the Euro-style socialist welfare state here in America. That is the very crux of the communist Ubama's agenda, and he has counted all along on the "global warming" scam to fund it.

What to do, oh, what to do...?

If it didn’t change, there would not be a need for the word “climate”.
