Secretary of State Kerry lashes out at climate change skeptics
FoxNews/AP ^ | 2/16/2014

Posted on 02/16/2014 6:04:46 PM PST by RoosterRedux

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world's "most fearsome" destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat.

In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet.

A day earlier, the U.S. and China announced an agreement to cooperate more closely on combating climate change. American officials hope that will help encourage others, including developing countries like Indonesia and India, to follow suit.

China and the United States are the biggest sources of emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases that cause the atmosphere to trap solar heat and alter the climate. Scientists say such changes are leading to drought, wildfires, rising sea levels, melting polar ice, plant and animal extinctions and other extreme conditions.

Also in the Jakarta speech, Kerry said everyone and every country must take responsibility for the problem and act immediately.

"We simply don't have time to let a few loud interest groups hijack the climate conversation," he said, referring to what he called "big companies" that "don't want to change and spend a lot of money" to act to reduce the risks.

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?

Kerry is lashing out because he doesn't have the evidence to approach the problem calmly.

Proof is easy to provide. If Kerry has proof...provide it.

Accuser! Shoddy science! Imperiling he planet! Kettle, meet pot. There is ample evidence of shoddy "science" by global warming adherents. If anyone skews the stats, it's them.

Taxing us for the act of breathing upon the moment of birth because we exhale? It's a double winner for liberal democrats - it's a means of encouraging abortions.

Here come Obama's 'Necessarily Skyrocketing' Electricity Rates

President Obama’s infamous words—saying electricity rates will “necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade program that would impose a costly energy tax on American consumers—are set to come true. Just ask the market.

Although cap and trade is not law, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) backdoor train wreck of energy regulations is forcing utilities to file for significant rate hikes in years to come because of the upgrades they will have to make or the complete shutdown of older plants.

China and the United States are the biggest sources of emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases

Then why do ALL of the plans to "stop globull warming" leave China out?

As far as I know, unlike warmers, flat-Earthers don't want the rest of us to waste trillions of dollars in support of their weak claims.

Now that effing French-looking Jon Effing Cary has effed up in the effing middle east, he is effing taking on the effing task of further effing up the effed up economy with this effing man-made global warming effing nonsense.

But I effing predict this will effing make him several effing times richer than he effing is effing now. Then he can effing retire to some effing mansion in effing France, where he effing came from.

You effing know I am effing right.

John Kerry rates right up there with Joe Biden when it comes to intellectual veracity, and considerably lower in the personality department. A smarter man would recognize his obvious limitations, and not tempt fate by insulting people who know more than him.

Holy Smoke!

If anything is “shoddy” is was Kerry’s navigation out from An Thoi towards Cambodia, where he claimed that drunken So. Vietnamese troops shot at him and his little boat when they were celebrating Christmas.

The ARVN in the Delta were mainly Buddhists and didn’t celebrate Christmas

Secondly, there was an armed patrol boat system in place to keep American naval craft from straying into Cambodia.

Thirdly, American naval personnel down there said he didn’t go anywhere near Cambodia.

If anything from Vietnam, Kerry should have gotten the “Golden Middle Finger” medal for lying faster about “combat wounds” for a 3 and out than any other man in military history.

By the way, he went to the White House for the dinner for French President Hollande, and guess what, HIS WIFE WASN’T WITH HIM. HE WAS ALONE.

What was she doing, stomping on tomatoes to make Heinz Ketchup?

Or trying to line up TV auditions for him as Lurch in a new “Addams Family” tv show?

If I remember right the prognosticators of changing climate (around the 60’s or 70’s) stated absolutely for sure that the times we are in right now would be an almost unbearable cold, icy time......the opposite of Gorebull warming.

” - - - “The science is unequivocal, - - - “

This is a statement that a Scientist does not ever make.

We as Scientists are always skeptical, and continually try to find a better test of an idea.

Global Warming, Global Cooling and Climate Change are all ideas that Politicians have used to extort tax dollars from the populations of their various Countries.

None of the three above mentioned Weather ideas has had a single, objectively testable, documented, published, Cause and Effect.

GW, GC and CC have all failed to move from junk science speculation to the higher level of a serious hypothesis.

All three weather speculations are just that: weather speculations.
