In October one of the main culprits in the global warming hoax published new data that undermines their own theory of global warming. The UKs MET Office, more formally called the UK's National Weather Service, updated global temperatures for 2012 and the new dataset shows that an unlikely event has occurred, according to their own models: Global warming has been halted for 15 years and counting.
While the MET Office accused critics of cherry-picking a starting point and nitpicked about language-for example the Daily Mail reported that the Met Office report [was] quietly released, while the Met office whined they just updated the data and there was no report at all- they dont dispute that from 1997 until the halfway mark in 2012 there has been no statistically significant rise in global temperatures.
Data such as this and a better coordinated scientific effort at debunking the science behind global warming is poking some serious holes that establishment technocrats would rather normal people like us not know about.
Fortunately however, some honest technocrats have been recruited for seven years in a row in a gathering that seems to be growing some legs in an effort to confront, debunk and demystify global warming.
In May of 2012, the Heartland Institute hosted its biggest ever- and seventh ever-International Conference on Climate Change, known affectionately as ICCC7, which might be a mocking reference to the UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change known as IPCC. For my money ICCC7 would look a LOT cooler on a t-shirt, pun intended.
A record number of think tanks, concerned policy makers, scientists and citizens got together in Chicago to look at the science behind global warming theories and explain why the science is wrong. ICCC7 also invited 50 UN scientists who support the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Changes perspective, but none agreed to attend, according to the Heartland Institute.
One of the most compelling presentations at ICCC7 was by Stanley Goldberg, a research scientist with the Hurricane Research division with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
He says the link that we have all heard through mainstream media about more violent storms caused by a rise in global temperatures are mostly manipulated by our ability to better observe weather globally. In one compelling case he shows how it used to be that between 100 and 75 percent of the observed storms in pre-satellite days made landfall, once satellite technology was available, the percentage of observed storms that made landfall fell to 59 percent. The implication is that since the decrease in storms making landfall accompanies advances in technology and does not represent an increase in the number of storms that make landfall, the only explanation is that through technology our ability to observe storms is better than its has been in the past.
The same can be said about temperature data as well. With temperatures showing a total increase of .75 degrees Celsius to make it THE WARMEST PLANET EVER IN RECORDED HISTORY! can we really be sure that its not our ability to measure and manipulate data that is not responsible for some of the increase?
Because heres the reality that none of the scientists tell you: There is no such thing as an average global temperature. Its a mathematically impossible concept.
Absolute estimates of global average surface temperature are difficult to compile for several reasons, says the National Climatic Data Center. Some regions have few temperature measurement stations (e.g., the Sahara Desert) and interpolation must be made over large, data-sparse regions. In mountainous areas, most observations come from the inhabited valleys, so the effect of elevation on a regions average temperature must be considered as well. For example, a summer month over an area may be cooler than average, both at a mountain top and in a nearby valley, but the absolute temperatures will be quite different at the two locations.
In other words, the ability to measure global temperatures is hindered by our ability to observe temperatures. Is it just coincidental that our increased ability to observe temperatures coincides with our observations of a global warming trend?
There is a tendency, says Goldberg, by some of the media, government and certain scientific circles to attribute almost ANY increase in natural disasters to AGW, which he jokingly calls Al Gore Warming.
If its bad, he concludes, it must be AGW!
But heres the real rub: None of the so-called solutions put forward by Kyoto, the Cap and Trade crowd and others with the ability to implement solutions attempts, under their own scientific theories of global warming, to reverse the warming trend. For example, if you assume that today renewable energy contributes about zero to energy production and assume that by 2040 renewable energy will contribute an optimistic 20 percent of all energy production, you still get fossil fuel use of about 112 percent of todays figure, when you include energy demand growth forecasts.
Under global warming theory this does nothing to halt or reverse any warming. All it does is ask American consumers to subsidize the development and use of cheaper fuels in developing nations, while putting the American economy at a disadvantage relative to India, China, Russia and other developing nations.
So heres to the climate warriors on the right side of science. They dont have to win. They just have to help us hold out a little longer, and let the climate do the rest.
AGW = Al Gore warming. LOL! Thank you Stanley Goldberg.
This issue is one of the most frustrating things I have to deal with at work! I have been teaching General Biology for almost 30 years at a community college in NC. I work with several wonderful people of all religious and political beliefs, but they ALL believe in AGW! The textbooks also present this concept as fact. Scientists are supposed to be objective and modify their theories when they discover evidence that contradicts the theory. It’s like this particular issue is so “sacred” to them that they don’t even want to admit that there might be another side to the issue. Without coming on TOO strong, I let my students know that there are many studies that indicate AGW is a bunch of “hot air” and that they should examine all of the evidence before they blindly accept what political correctness says is fact.
People seem to love Snake Oil Salesmen - they nearly voted Algore in as president and fortunately lost but given the second chance, those silly people voted Barry Obama in getting pretty much the same Snake Oil.....which in all probability we will all drown in.
Al Gore’s Apple Stock Options Earn Him $29 Million In Shares
Eric Brown | January 18 2013
Al Gore may have just made close to $100 million from the sale of the Current TV network, but it appears the former U.S. vice president is not done pocketing the big bucks quite yet. Gore this week bought roughly $29 million worth of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock for pennies on the dollar, making him even richer than ever.
A U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Form 4 filed on Thursday shows Gore exercised his option as an Apple director to purchase 59,000 shares of the company for $7.475 a stub on Tuesday. Apple closed at $500 per share on Friday. This means Gore paid $441,025 for stock now worth $29.5 million. Sure beats government work.
Al Gore, the charlatan and hypocrite, is now rolling in his Arab oil money at his seaside villa while flying around the country in a private jet and being driven in limousines to speaking engagement where he berates us for having too big a carbon footprint and being dependent on fossil fuels. It is ironic that the dire predictions of rising sea levels in his movie should have by now inundated his seaside mansion. I also see not a single windmill or solar panel powering his mansion. The man is a total phony yet is still adored by the media.
The big problem is that the State of CA has fully embraced global warming and has restructured and integrated its entire agency directives to combat climate change through regional government. It has become thoroughly embedded in our government through AB 32, SB 375, Cap ‘N Trade, regional Integrated Water and Resource Management Plans, Regional Transportation etc. Its purpose is to undermine the authority of local elected government, place private property under unelected stakeholder groups so that it can be reallocated and economically benefit the elite/bankers.
