Warmers Use Magic to Create the Illusion of Science
Townhall Finance ^ | Jan 07, 2014 | John Ransom

"Sire, I have been misunderstood.I will explain.There are two kinds of prophecy.One is the gift to foretell things that are but a little way off, the other is the gift to foretell things that are whole ages and centuries away.Which is the mightier gift, do you think?"—Hank Morgan, the Connecticut Yankee, in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

In Mark Twain’s classic A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, Hank Morgan, who calls himself the Yankee of the Yankees, uses science over and over to create the illusion of magic to support the notion that he is in fact the mightiest magician of all-time. In the end, the illusion, along with misapplied technology is what does him in.

Today, global warmists use magic to create the illusion of science, misapplying technology along the way. And those illusion are killing them right now.

Yesterday I wrote about how increasingly frustrated global warming alarmists were, practically throwing tantrums as real-time data shows that global warming models do not accurately model temperatures.

Their illusions, in other words, are being increasingly shown as delusions.

Had the misfortune of watching CNN this morngin and had a segment on some author of some global warming study... But the talking head news-babe made it clear that “we don’t call it global-warming anymore” (pretty obvious why, since the segment was about the arctic blast)

In the GW Alarmists view, it is the heater in your car that makes the engine warm up.

Well I’d say the temps here in the naion the last few days disagree stronly with global warming. I expect some liberal idiot scientist to step up any day now and say that there is always a cooling down period that is followed by a global warming period.

But they have FAITH in their climate models...

Al Gore said it - They believe it - That settles it.

Further proof that anthropogenic global warming/climate change alarmists are part of a RELIGION.

I think the “media” is being disingenuous with their coverage of this “cold blast”. Everything I’ve seen on FNC this morning was using wind chill temperatures not the measured temperatures. They even have the words “wind chill” added to all of their maps. The problem with that is most people living here can’t read that or pay no attention to it. Those who can read don’t know what “wind chill” means. They should post the actual measured temperatures. JMO.

Hilarious! These "warmers," Obama Administration, MSNBC and MSM employees in general are wild, great comedy -- not since Monty Python's Flying Circus has there been anything like Obama Jivethon's Lying Circus.

Here's Monty Python explaining how coconuts could have been found in England during the middle ages.. from the movie The Holy Grail. The discussion starts at about the one minute mark.

I caught CNN last night with Gingrich and Van Jones.

Gingrich made two great points:

1) What is the correct global temperature, Mr. Expert?

2) Even if you accept manmade global warming, you cannot tell us there will be a catastrophe coming. A 1 to 2 degree increase in global temperatures will not devastate the planet.

So, why the urgency to “do something”?

You're entirely correct, WayneS. Let me add this, please: the fake religion of "anthropogenic climate" whatever it's being called today is for consumption by the masses, whereas the real point of communism remains unchanged: it's the shortest, straightest path to power for the vanguard of the revolution.

Frankly, that's the only thing that scares me about global warming....

...that someone with money (Bill Gates? Richard Branson?) might get a bee in their bonnet to "do something", actually do it, and REALLY screw things up.

climate phobia

OK, so why don’t we go to war with these wealth-stealing alarmists by coining a term like the ones that they have falsely create for us: “CLIMATE PHOBES”
Yes, a suggestion for bloggers and pundits: From now on climate fear peddlers are to be properly and frequently called “climate phobes”!

“CLIMATE PHOBES”

I like it, but how about fear of temperature?

“TEMPERATURE PHOBES”

Yes, you’ve heard of temperature probes....these people are temperature phobes!

I think to truly take-off it will have to be a mere 2-syllables, as buzzwords are typically very simple.
How about therefor, “TEMPERA PHOBES”? Would that work?
Or rather I still think we are where they have tried to back off the global warming label and are using the climate change one since warming wasn’t working out all the time. So to stay on topic and in the spirit of simplicity, how about “CLIMA PHOBES”?
