Despite Record Cold and Snow, the Blizzard of Lies on Global Warming Continues
Political Realities ^ | 01/22/14 | Mike Miller

Posted on 01/23/2014 2:25:27 AM PST by LD Jackson

How ridiculous does the weather have to get before the alarmists stop trying to scare us with global warming fears?

The week after the biggest freeze to hit North America in 20 years, Democrats in Washington began a campaign to demand that news outlets do more stories to scare people into believing global warming is real. It seems that after more than thirty years of telling us the world was about to end if we didn't act now by raising taxes on energy (as if that would have the slightest effect on the climate) polls show fewer and fewer Americans are buying the "sky is falling" scaremongering.

So, after receiving instructions from their Democrat masters news media outlets obeyed by ramping up the scaremachine (1,2) just as another record blizzard and cold machine grips an area from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic and northeast (1,2). Despite telling us for years that lack of snow was proof of global warming the warmongers turn on a dime and tell us exactly the opposite (2), none of which was predicted by the models they claim as proof of their theory.
Anyone up for sledding on the Nile? Snow in Egypt December 2013
And it's not just the United States. When was the last time you saw snow on the Spinx and Pyramids in Egypt? Try, NEVER, as it hasn't happened in more than 100 years. But it did happen in December.

Still, if the numbers of cold and snow events were not so numerous and record breaking you might have to concede they are just weather events. As the L.A. Times editorial which demands action on climate change before it's too late (haven't we heard that one before?) says: "Underlying many of the misperceptions about global warming is the myth that climate — a long-term trend — is the same thing as isolated weather events. " Yet don't the scaremongers trot out every example of  extreme weather to suggest global warming theory is right, even if they predicted just the opposite earlier?

A good example comes from the wildfire started around Los Angeles last week by some homeless men trying to keep warm (it was cold don't you know?). Reporting on the fire, KTTV Meteorologist Rick Dickert said:

DICKERT: We see wildfires every month now in Southern California. With global climate change, all the atmospheric scientists agree that our summers long longer, hotter, and dryer with shorter windows of rain and snow.
Let's put aside the big fib that "all atmospheric scientists agree because they don't. But while there is a severe drought in California, droughts come and go. A recent study in the peer reviewed journal "Nature" concludes there has been "little change in global drought over the past 60 years." And in the United States, droughts are actually less severe than they were during the 30's and 50's. I have to point out that this information comes from the U.S. government, not Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. According to the study in Nature, if anything, drought has been "overestimated." The number of wildfires in the U.S. and the acerage burned is "far below average" as reported in the same L.A. Times whose editorial board wants to scare us into higher taxes on energy. Do the editors not read their own paper?

As I've said before, it's not just wildfires or droughts that are in abeyance. It's all extreme weather events from hurricanes to tornadoes to days over 100 degrees. All exactly the opposite of what warmongers predicted.

Expect the baloney mobile of global warmongering to continue as long as governments and green investors can raise taxes or make a profit from the big scare. The fact that we're freezing and shoveling more snow than ever won't make a dent in their delusion!

Never argue with a Global Warming/Climate Change hoaxer. They will drag you down to their level of stupid and beat you with experience.

Yes, they absolutely would, and predict doom and destruction within 5 years. Their solution would be higher taxes, and more government control. If the climate somehow remained unnaturally static, they would predict doom and destruction within 5 years. Which could only be solved by more government control, and higher taxes.

The Creator is making it crystal-clear that global warming is bunk; that man in his arrogance has no influence over the climate in any way, shape or form. Repentance is what they should really worry about...

Never argue with anyone who you know deals not in facts. Just ask the simple questions to extract the truth and they stop trying to argue.

Just ask the rhetorical questions and all of a sudden they have to think about the answers they don’t know and can’t BS their way through. If they don’t answer the question and try the BS anyway, interrupt them with the exact same question. If they come back with a BS question, just interrupt them again and say “I asked you first”.

I would like to tie down all the warmists, have them submit to polygraph tests, and see how many of them admit they despise the free-enterprise system. Most of the huckstering about “global warming” is simply many people who can’t stand the fact that there are rich people and poor people...and they’re not among the rich. Of course there are the conmen like Al Gore who got filthy rich off the whole scam.

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 sun’s 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?

There are more than a few of us that believe that anthropogenic “climate change” is far from settled science.

With the breakup of the Soviets, the world domination communists had to go somewhere. They were not going to change their DNA.

They all went into the world-wide environmental movement.

They exist right here on FR... true believers. They were all over threads here yesterday.

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/heatherginsberg/2014/01/19/un-climate-chief-says-communism-is-best-way-to-fight-global-warming-n1779973

Climate change has been a popular topic of conversation lately and it appears the United Nations is taking a stand on the environmental changes. The UN climate chief, Christiana Figueres, also apparently knows about how government systems affect the climate. Oh wait, no she doesn’t.

She stated earlier this week that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. She also said that communist China is instead the best model.

Even though China is the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggles with major pollution issues of their own, apparently Ms. Figueres thinks that means they are “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming.

“Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.”

Once a theory quantum leaps into a religion, for no reason other than some external man-made influence, beware.

Heavens Gate worshipers call from the grave.

Brilliant idea! A fun way to have to deal with these liars.

OT: Love Si and the DD clan. They always make me laugh out loud for real. A real pick-me-up at the end of the day!
