Study: 8 out of 10 Pinoys suffer from climate change
GMA News ^ | June 22, 2013 | by Rouchelle R. Dinglasen

Posted on 06/22/2013 4:34:34 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

A World Bank-commissioned study revealed that eight out of 10 Filipinos “personally experienced” the impacts of climate change in the last three years.

The study conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) disclosed that 85 percent of respondents claimed to have suffered from climate change. Of this figure, more than half or 54 percent described their experience as “severe” to “moderate.”

Also notable is how about two-thirds or 63 percent of survey respondents admitted that they did not participate in efforts to reduce the ill effects of climate change.

This would be funny if it weren’t for the billions of dollars pouring down the drain without doing anyone except bureaucrats and “scientists” a bit of good.

The good news is that they can all come here under the amnesty deal.

Worse than the bureaucrats and “scientists” are the mega-hustlers like Al Gore who are raking in hundreds of millions. It’s no different than crime syndicates or drug rings — the top “lords” or capos are making the big hauls at our expense.

“So, Mr. Pinoy, have you personally suffered the impact of climate change over the past three years?”
“Oh yeah. Man, it was extra hot last year. I got a terrible sunburn a couple times. And the ice in my pina colada melted too quickly.”

What a bunch of bunkum.

Suffering from the “moderate to severe” effects of an alleged one or two degree F temperature increase over the course of a century? Darwin could tell us what will happen to individuals who are that delicate. I’ve experienced almost daily temperature swings ten times that size, annual swings of 100 degrees or more, and a memorable storm that produced more than a fifteen degree decrease in a half hour.

And they don’t list the loaded questions they asked the people, do they. Betcha they didn’t account for the recent high level of volcanic activity either. Just like measuring 400 ppm of CO2 on the summit of Mauna Loa; utter junk science.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s so hot and / or rainy in the Philippines all the time that its impossible to discern any effect one way or the other, and frankly no one cares.

The 400 ppm announcement was wrong but the measurements of CO2 there are long-settled science, see http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/about/co2_measurements.html for example. There are variations no matter where in the world CO2 is measured, mostly from diurnal and annual vegetation and temperature fluctuations, mainly due to plant respiration. For example CO2 can spike at night as plants release CO2 or slowly rise in the fall as leaves decay and release CO2.

Measuring on top of a volcano that releases CO2 may seen problematic, but the contamination from the volcano is detectable as the prevailing winds on Mauna Loa shift from the trade wind direction (E) to other directions. The idea that there is way to sample volcanic CO2 and produce the steady rise shown is easily debunked. There are independent studies showing the same rise around the world with different annual variations and noise, but a matching slope.

This phoney baloney news is just a prelude, so don't discount it even though it may sound goofy now.

It's a clue that eco-nutcases are paving the way to declare "climate change" as a legitimate sickness on a par with other unusual illnesses such as Gulf War Syndrome and Agent Orange Disease.

In other words, if you're suffering from "Climate Change-itis", ObamaCare will be right there to insure you can get taxpayer-paid treatment at the luxurious AlGore Climate Change Treatment and Rehab Center in Rancho Mirage, California.

There is no such thing as “long-settled science”. It’s like thinking that “credible government” exists.

Ship them all here, empty the island. Then I'll move there. Problem solved. I get to carry the heavy burden of knowing I'll be affected by the horrors of climate change, and they can be safe in the knowledge that climate change will never occur in the United States because our betters have looked out for the common good.

I remember during my lfetime when we held scientists in high esteem.

And now, in my latter years, I have learned to distrust everything that comes from their mouths. They have sunk, IMO, to the level of politician - that’s low.

FROM THE ARTICLE “Likewise, the survey results showed that about one-third or 38 percent of respondents have “only little” understanding of climate change, while 14 percent have “almost no understanding” of the subject. Only 12 percent of respondents said that they have “extensive” knowledge on climate change, while some 35 percent has “partial but sufficient” understanding.”

So some 52% of respondents had little to no understanding of climate change and this is somehow a legitimate survey.

Don’t you dare question political correctness! Global warming is a fact, the science is settled. Al Gore said so. Al Gore cannot be questioned!!

The politically correct crowd would NOT give any credence to your wife being Filipina, and thus having some better idea of what’s going on in the Phillipines than their “experts” who have never been there!

Reading through papers that describe the CO2 measurements, the equipment is solid enough. That's long-settled engineering, and can hardly be disputed without tossing basic physics (e.g. spectral analysis). Then they have to smooth out the natural and man-made fluctuations, depending on the location (some are natural settings like an island in the Mediterranean , some are industrial areas in Germany). In any case they describe their process and in most cases produce a curve that shows mostly the same rise and annual wiggle as Mauna Loa. Remote southern locations like Antarctica produce less annual wiggle but the same overall rise.

It's possible to argue there is a closed circle of science that produces the same results. But it is not possible to argue that the Mauna Loa volcano matters nor that there is a conspiracy of some sort. It could be bad science, but that is extremely unlikely at this point.

“A World Bank-commissioned study revealed that eight out of 10 Filipinos “personally experienced” the impacts of climate change in the last three years.”

A real professional “journalist” editor would have given this report a different title - my correction in [ ]; as follows:

“A World Bank-commissioned study revealed that eight out of 10 Filipinos [believe that they] “personally experienced” the impacts of climate change in the last three years.”

And they have every reason to believe that. They have been told over and over by the media that the storms and floods that they have exepericed, and that Phillipine Islands have experienced since time immemorial, ONLY are happening - in their time - due to “global warming”.

“The study conducted by the Social Weather Stations”

translation - social scientists sticking their finger up in the “social environment” to see which way “popular belief” is flowing.

Is it a study about “global warming” of “climate change”?

No. Its about people’s popular beliefs.

You sure put your faith very quickly in man-made equipment. Who calibrates the calibrators? And are you trying to say that CO2 emission from an active volcano is a constant? (Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984 after all.) There is no accounting for anything on an unpredictable piece of real estate that may start extruding molten rock at any time, and it certainly is the worst place in the world to measure any average atmospheric content of any particular gas.

Coming from the World Bank, I can imagine the questions...

“Do you want more money? Do you NEED more money to cope with climate change? Have you been harmed by climate change?”

And note, it is now climate change...so if the world turns colder, it will still be a cause for taxation and regulation.
