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

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
These bastards won’t give up.
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.
You are getting warmer...try again.
It’s dead Jim,,
A new name for the same hustle.
They can’t lie fast enough to keep up with the weather.
Climate disruptions are also called weather.
What ever shall we do?
Our only hope is to have our property and freedoms confiscated before it's too late.
Agreed! Global Hoax hits the bullseye!
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.
Yes John let’s just say global climatilogialshitamessofus would help people to truly understand your dumbass point.
Call it what it is: VAT
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).
Don’t forget that it was “Global Cooling” during the 70’s!
It’s as if the Federal Government is being run by superstitious Medieval Physicians - “have a spoonful of Mercury, apply some maggots overnight, we’ll give you a blood-letting in the morning and you should be feeling as good as new.”
It must be a colossal bitch when a God you don’t believe in creates a world you can’t control.
No, in 1977 Holdren wrote about Global Cooling.
It’s all horse hockey too, where’s my degree. One I had not heard before; seems that if you break open a persimen seed there is the image of a knife, fork, or spoon. This yr. it’s a spoon and means a lot of snow. This is up in midwest,,,we’ll see what the Farmers Almanac has to say.
What is the cause of a rogue wave? I understand regular waves are the result of currents and wind.
The Earth Has A Fever
It's worth billions of bucks, thousands of academic job grants, economic/political/private property control.
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.
Shooting random man made crap into the air good, naturally occurring CO2 bad.
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.
They should just say, “Send us your money, all of it.”
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.
Let’s call it what it is ultimately, “Global Redistribution of Wealth”. There, now let’s have the “probable” forecast of tomorrow’s weather.
Here you are!
Weather changes. Whoop!
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.
My personal position is that all these visionaries from Erlich to Holdren and beyond is that if your prediction is proven false in time, you will be executed by stoning
Exactly! Legislate, because it’s our fault!
