White House Science Czar: "'Global Warming' is a Dangerous Misnomer"
Cybercast News Service ^ | 9/15/10 | Eric Scheiner

Posted on 09/15/2010 10:29:06 PM PDT by Nachum

John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, says that the term "global warming" is "a dangerous misnomer” that should be replaced with “global climate disruption." At the Environmental Protection Agency's 40th celebration of the Clean Air Act on Tuesday, Holdren said, "I think one of the failures of the scientific community was in embracing the term 'global warming'. Global warming is in fact a dangerous misnomer." And in a speech last week in Norway, echoing remarks he made at a 2007 speech at Harvard University, Holdren said the

First it was Global Warming, because we were all going to bake. Then it turned into Global Climate Change because they weren’t sure whether we would bake or freeze, but they were sure it had to do with temperature. Now apparently it’s Global Climate Disruption, because they aren’t even sure the temperature will be any different than it otherwise would have been, but still, it’s going to be really bad, and it’s all our fault.

Global climate disruptions are RANDOM events. Mankind has NOTHING to do with these events. Liberals are full of hot air.

First it was Global Warming, because we were all going to bake.

Oh no it was NOT "First" global warming! It was the "Next Ice Age!" I don't know how old you are, but I remember that meme from when I was a kid in the 1970's! We were all going to freeze to death due to the global freeze that was coming!

It was BS as the "Next Ice Age!" It was BS as "Global Warming!" It is BS as "Global Climate Change!" AND, it will BS when they change the nomenclature for this meme in about two years!

The Dems have destroyed countless careers with their insane lynch mob of Al Gore global warming fundamentalists and now that they’ve been thoroughly discredited they are furiously backpedaling and devising a new fraud to frighten the public into submission. The sky is falling. The sky is falling.

They keep trying and throwing terms at the wall hoping one will stick. I still use GW. Makes them squirm and try to explain why I should call it something else. They called it Global Warming for years and told us why, the “science” hasn’t changed according to them, but the terminology has.

I also remember that meme from my childhood. Also, the same things that were supposed to freeze us to death, later, were supposed to bake us to death.

Hmmm...sounds like Stimulus Bill, followed by Jobs Bill, then changed to Recovery Bill...

Or, Democrats to Moderate to Liberals, to Progressives...

All the same thing and all full of crap.

Changing the name, doesn’t change the game. It only served to confuse people and fool them into believing the hype.

But most aren’t being played anymore...we’ve woken up.

A quick google search shows that just last year this idiot Holdren was claiming that global warming was happening so fast that he was recommending a system of air conditioning the planet. Here’s a quote from an article on HuffPo explaing Holdren’s global air conditioning insanity:

“One option raised by Holdren and proposed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays.”

Nightline had an interesting segment this evening on rogue waves. Apparently there has been a recent increase in giant catastrophic rogue waves. They posited this as the cause of ships that just disappear. Not time enough to send a distress message when one of these hits.

To know how the climate has been disrupted, you would have to know what we were supposed to get, that we didn’t get.

Of course, they don’t know that, or even if there is any difference. So they can claim that anything is a “disruption.”

This is just b.s. as a foundation for new taxes — I live in British Columbia which has already gone for this big-time and it is not making any economic sense. We’re lucky that there would have been a boom, because now we’re just getting a flat line. If we would have had a flat line, we would be in a depression. Anyway, that’s my economic theory, and I based it on climate science (LOL).

When I first read this article a while back, I was all on board for it! Of course, I thought that Holdren and some of the HuffPo people were the "pollution particles" that were going to be shot into the upper atmosphere!

Now, I just am not really that interested in this solution.

What is the cause of a rogue wave? I understand regular waves are the result of currents and wind.

It's almost laughable! When I see this crap, I think of a Marx Brother's/Monty Python movie premise: you are in the hospital listening to the doctor's discuss your medical condition (you have to pee - it occurs naturally (like the climate)).
We think we have a problem.
We think we know what it is.
We think we know how to solve it.
But, we KNOW we need lots and lots of YOUR money and control over YOUR life to fix it!

You start to think you should have used the dirty, nasty, putrid smelling restroom at the gas station across the street!

Rogue waves are a function of harmonics. If a number of waves converge, and happen to be of a similar frequency and amplitude, they will reinforce each other to form one giant wave, which only exists so long as its component waves are converging. As they move past each other, they separate into the original waves again. Since the open ocean doesn’t really have a fixed “level”, it can be difficult to detect some of the larger waves, such as those caused by seismic activity or large storm systems over the horizon. However, if several of those large waves intersect, they basically climb over each other, and become visible during the interaction.

Well, it was a mistake. Called “warming”, all you can blame on SUV’s is, well, warming. Called change, news anchors can blame every windstorm on SUV’s. That’s a problem when the models on CO2/Warming start to be wrong.

Has anyone been watching the new commercial from clean coal?
Some dude is calling CO2 a pollutant and says we are going to bury it.
I feel like filing a truth in advertising lawsuit making them prove CO2 is a pollutant.

Does anyone here recall a recent post about the melting of glaciers in Europe that described how artifacts from hundreds of years ago are being revealed as glaciers recede? I believe it mentioned clothing, shoes, etc.

I would like to read the article again but can’t find it using various search terms. If you have a link to the story please post it. Thanks.

Yes, this allows them to blame any kind of climate change on progress and allows the anti-capitalists to try to regulate us back to the stone age.

Wow. So, if the weather occasionally acts unpredictable and unseasonal, it won’t be because it is...weather...it will be because it is “global climate disruption.”

So, if I come out of my house today, and it is 30 degrees with black ice on the road, instead of 45 degrees as it will normally be, that will be evidence of “global climate disruption”?

These vermin will not give up. They are like cockroaches that fly in the face of reality. They are determined to control us through taxation and constriction/reduction/destruction of our energy industries.
