Posted on 01/08/2014 3:01:58 PM PST by nickcarraway
All kinds of people and organizations, from media to scientists, have been pushing back against the idea, popular among the Rush Limbaugh set, that recent bitingly cold weather disproves global warming. Rather, they say, global warming actually causes this extreme weather, by making the polar air mass more unstable. That's now the official line of the White House, which is embarking on a bit of a media blitz to deny the notion that one cold snap means climate change is a lie. In a video released Wednesday, President Obama's science and technology advisor, Dr. John Holdren, made the two-minute case.
"The fact is that no single weather episode can either prove or disprove global climate change. Climate is the pattern of weather that we observe geographically, and over the seasons, and it's described in terms of averages, variations, and probabilities," Holdren soberly explained. To further make the point, according to BuzzFeed, the White House plans to dedicate one of its "We the Geeks" sessions to the polar vortex, throwing a team of scientists and experts at the issue, presumably to offer well-reasoned, scientific explanations.
But well-reasoned scientific explanations can only do so much in the face of conspiracy theories and insinuation. "In the middle of a hoax, theyre perpetrating a hoax, but theyre relying on their total dominance of the media to lie to you each and every day about climate change and global warming," Limbaugh said on Monday. Beat that, science.
In the long term the sun is getting hotter.
Obama’s people doubling down on stupid.
Someone needs to end this nightmare now. This nation is dissolving in front of our eyes because of this criminal communist element. I am disheartened, disgusted and depressed.
Well, since big business will enforce belief in it, I guess he can afford to...
You are not alone on this.
Ok, see you next summer when there is a heatwave.
The Global Warming scare is just another scam/scheme like Obamacare, dreamed up as an issue to justify increased taxes to fund more Big Gov and more wealth redistribution.
Ignorance is Strength
Freedom is Slavery
Cold is Hot
Same. And it is not going to get better. We MAY do OK in the mid-terms, but that’s it. All the demographics are radically against us. The RINO lead GOP is Dem-lite. We lose 7-10 Senate seats in 2016 guaranteed, gay marriage will be the law of the land ... it is a long long list. It’s times like this I’m glad I’m old.
Arctic explorer to eskimo:
“Am I close to the North Pole?”
Eskimo: “You`re getting warmer!”
An easy way to avoid confusion and embarrassment:
Just remember these two rules about Global Warming:
1 - Record setting cold, snow or ice does not disprove the existence of Global Warming. They are just anecdotal evidence of a temporary condition and cannot be regarded as valid indicators.
2 - Record setting warm temperatures, drought, rain, storms, melting ice, or other unusual conditions are undeniable empirical evidence that man caused Global Warming is destroying the planet, and maybe even the entire galaxy.
I’m going to confess I’m lukewarm on this. Part of my issue is that science works to prove its explanations wrong. That is something I never see mentioned - or have I missed it?
i will be looking forward to the white house explanation regarding how super-size SUV’s and other acts of repulicans have altered the worlds and sun’s axis to cause the current polar vortex.
It’s utterly laughable to see these guys NOW making the point that climate is not the same as weather after years of using every tornado, hurricane, heat wave, flood, and forest fire as PROOF that “global warming” is a REAL BIG PROBLEM threatening all human life on Earth. These people, Holdren chief among them, are dishonest worms.
Let me answer, please.
You’re absolutely right.
In fact, scientists should always be skeptical. They should especially be skeptical of their own theories, and work hard to always ensure the data leads to impeccable results.
That the left-wing community of so-called scientist/political agitators want to label anyone who doesn’t agree (that global warming is due to human industrialization) a denier—like they are Nazi sympathizers, is down right despicable and has no merit in science.
A logical Ad Hominem fallacy.
I took from that was that he was drunk the rest of the time..
When a scientist only gets funded for saying global warming is real he has no incentive to actually conduct real science
.....aaaand in other neus:
Nobama peeeed in the ocean causing globull flooding!
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Let’’s put it in context. Here
In times past, I would have been in your camp. Lukewarm on the whole issue. However, I am old enough to remember the Coming Ice Age that was in vogue in the mid 70’s. When that was being written about, a list of solutions was pushed. These included, quit using fossil fuels, including coal and petroleum. Instead, use solar and wind instead for power generation. When they switched to Global Warming, imagine my surprise when the solutions were identical! The other red flag was that these wizards of smart gave us some dire predictions to watch out for, and not a single one has panned out. The poles still have ice, drought has not starved the planet and the hurricanes that were supposed to decimate the east coast have not materialized. When they can’t get it right in the near term, why should I trust that they have it right in the long term? And why should I gamble the worlds economies that they will.
Precisely why there are so many people who are shouting from the rooftops now, including me. We know one event doesn't prove anything, but now that the AlGores have bitten, they can't use it again without being hypocrites, if that bothers them.
The more they keep talking about warming.....the colder it gets. Pretty soon they will talk us into the next ice age!
Climategate was the beginning of the end of the AGW/CO2 fraud. The clingers are so invested in the political scam they can’t even come to terms with the obvious fraud. Scientists can’t even tell if any warming is not just naturally occurring.
Katrina will be glad to hear that.
Same old, same old, it seems.
Ah yes, the old, “Global cooling is caused by global warming!” bologna again....
In the 70s, the leftists blamed global cooling for the polar vortex. I don’t remember what we were supposed to do about it.
Interestingly, it appears that the anti-God leftists are arguing that the current temperature of the earth is precisely and exactly what it needed to be for optimum life, and that ANY deviation up or down is a cause for alarm.
Almost like someone DESIGNED the climate with us in mind.
Of course, I’m sure there is some evolutionary scheme that explains it. Maybe natural weather selection or something.
If I had to trade national Gay marriage for the appeal of Obamacare, I’d do it in an instant. Gay Marriage is part of a long moral decline for which there are many other things including easy divorce, the sexualization of culture, and the welfare state’s skew toward single parenthood. Gay marriage won’t be a sea change.
But Obamacare is actually destroying our economy. It is the stepping-stone to single-payer destruction of our health care system, and the empowering of a generation of politicians.
Frankly, if Gay marriage became nationwide by supreme court fiat, it would take an issue off the table that we never figured out how to fight effectively.
There you go rationalizing again. Maybe you should consult the Bible for a little perspective on the homosexualization of society. In biblical terms, the normalization of homosexual marriage is the final act of mankind’s rejection of God and the invitation of His judgement.
Matthew 24:37-39; 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17: 28-30; 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
The common thread between the days of Noah and the days of Lot is sexual perversion and overall human depravity and a lackadaisical view of God and man’s descent into abomination.
You say we can handle the normalization of homosexual marriage... you are inviting God’s judgement on all of us... no thanks!!

Wrong — ALL climate change is 100 percent natural, 100 percent of the time. Global climate change is 100 percent natural, 100 percent of the time. The FACT is, AGW is entirely political in origin, and is entirely sustained through political activity by demagogues — and has absolutely zero science behind any of it. THAT has been proved EACH AND EVERY TIME we have been forced to fund research, and by that I mean, actual scientific research, not the agitprop that is sometimes passed off as if it is scientific.
One hundred out of one hundred lobbyists for the big, politically connected, Sea-Wall construction companies agree wholeheartedly.
I disagree. I think Congress is a very serious cause of climate change, and we can only destroying Congress immediately. It's the only solution.
‘Im going to confess Im lukewarm on this.”
There is no valid scientific basis for being “lukewarm” on the subject of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), also known as Climate Change. The entire AGW conjecture is based upon pseudo-scientific claims which the scientific principles and experimental evidence demonstrate to be respectively contrary to the fundamental laws of physics and contradicted by observations.
THIS GLOBAL WARMING THING IS OMINOUS..
WE MUST START A HEADLONG FURIOUS DRIVE TO BUILD SEA WALL UP AND DOWN THE COAST OF FLORIDA
One hundred out of one hundred lobbyists for the big, politically connected, Sea-Wall construction companies agree wholeheartedly
UM YES I/M UNDOUBTEDLY THEY WORK FOR COMPANYS WHOSE CEOS PUSH IMMIGRATION ‘REFORM’ BECAUSE THEY WANT MASS BORDERLESSNESS SO AS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DIRT CHEAP LABOR SUBSIDIZED BY TAXPAYERS WHO’RE PROVIDIN’ THEIR SLAVES WITH FOOD HEALTHCARE AND OTHER ‘FREE STUFF’
SO IT WORKS OUT WELL FOR ALL OF THOSE OUTFITS BUT NOT SO WELL FOR AMERICA AND IT’S HARD WORKIN TAXPAYERS....TAKE A LOOK AT THE BRAINY BEAUTY ANN COULTER AS SHE SETTLES THE IMMIGRATION HASH OF TOO HAPLESS BOYS AND A RECENT INTERVIEW ON LARRY KUDLOW’S CNN OFFERING ...
HERE SHE TEACHES US EVERY THING WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IMMIGRATION...PLEASE WATCH THIS EVERYONE...IT’S FASCINATING AND YOU GET TO LEARN TONS:
“I am disheartened, disgusted and depressed.”
The left will claim that you need to take off the 3-D glasses.
Little confused on this polar vortex. Cold molecules are slow moving as opposed to warm molecules fast moving so cold never displaces hot, hot always displaces cold
so, how does the cold weather displace warmer weather?
