Posted on 02/26/2014 6:30:32 AM PST by Texas Eagle
We had both higher temps and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today
Selected Highlights of Dr. Patrick Moores Feb. 25, 2014 testimony before the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee:
There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earths atmosphere over the past 100 years.

What’s a global warming nut-job to do these days?
Even the usual suspects are beginning to pull their heads out.
He’s going to get lambasted by his now former peers.
If it wasn't for Climate Change, we wouldn't have beautiful natural wonders like The Great Lakes, Niagara Falls, Yosemite National Park, Glacier National Park, etc.
10,000 years ago, the area we now call The United Kingdom was under a thousand feet of ice.
There are many other reasons to embrace Climate Change. These are just a few.
In the case of Secretariat of State John Kerry and President Valerie Jarrett's clean, articulate, black (Joe Biden's words) mouthpiece, Barack Obama (if that's his real name), you double down.
If things warmed up, lots of marginally habitable areas would become more people friendly. Places like northern Canada, Siberia etc.
The Real Headline
“Greenpeace Co-Founder Chills Out”
Not to mention Michigan.
The steam coming out of their ears will contribute more to climate change than my SUV.
Michigan would just turn into Florida without hurricanes or sharks.
It will be a miracle if someone from his group doesn’t firebomb him within a week.
After all, CO2 is yummies for green plants. Too much CO2? The trees we hug can nicely take care of that.
Both unusually hot and unusually cold times were known to have high CO2 levels.
Trying to predict what the earth is going to do with climate, especially on the basis of a single dimensional factor, is right now less reliable than crystal ball gazing. The earth heats up. It cools down. It has never had anything like anthropogenic CO2 before. But maybe, just maybe, God isn’t a dunce?
And then those green plants convert the CO2 to Oxygen which we in turn inhale and convert to CO2 when we exhale.
It's almost as if someone designed this planet to work this way.
Oops. I mean Someone.
Plus, a lot of those green plants become yummies for humans and animals.
I'd move back in a heartbeat, to NW lower peninsula that is.
The best part for us here in the south would be we wouldn’t have to put up with the yearly migration of the “snowbirds”.
Surely this ‘breaking news’ article on an obscure website will be picked-up by the major ‘news services’ and widely broadcast.
They vote Democrat.
Who runs the “Junk Science” ping list these days?
I just finished reading Super Freakonomics (fascinating book, BTW) and the writers pretty much shot to pieces the whole global warming threat.
It went something like this: When I was in school, we learned CO2 was plant food. Is it causing the planet to warm? Well, the planet is warming, this is not in dispute, and it has been warming for the past 12,000 years.
It also has periods where it cools. In fact, during the 1970s, Global COOLING was the great fear. The argument was that we were polluting the air so bad that heavy particles in the atmosphere were blocking the sun and causing temperatures to drop. The result were a myriad of clean air laws to combat this. So perhaps global warming today is nothing more than good environmental stewardship?
Today, CO2 in the air is around 350 ppm. 100 years ago, it was 250 ppm. 80 million years ago it was 1000 ppm (about the same as the inside of a typical office building). Hydroponic grow rooms use an atmosphere enriched with 1400 ppm of CO2.
We also know that CO2 is not a good greenhouse gas. The real culprit is methane. So we need to ban beef and all go on a vegetarian diet, right? Oops, turns out 98% of all methane is produced by decaying plant matter.
So if the globe is warming, is this even bad? That depends. If you are in the business of selling heating oil, global warming is very bad. If you are in the business of growing food, global warming isn't bad at all (and, as you said above, increased CO2 in the atmosphere is very, very good).
They are some of the most rude, obnoxious and just plain ignorant people you would ever care to meet.
On top of that, the south also gets the “snowbird” winos, sorry lets go PC here, HOMELESS.
Thousands of bums from the north come south for the winter.
Luckily I now live where I don’t have to put up with them.
Like I said, where I live now I don’t have to put up with them.
When I lived in Corpus Christi the snowbird winos swarmed the city every year.
Rude, obnoxious, and ignorant?
People from the north would be driving on the beach and get stuck in the sand. OK anyone can get stuck in the sand, no problem.
You would think when someone tries to be nice and pull them out of the sand they could at least be nice back and say thank you.
Not people from the north. I don’t think they even know how to say thank you.
Somehow it was always everyone else’s fault but their own for getting stuck.
Non stop bitching.
After you pull them out they would drive right back into the soft sand and get stuck again. Again with the complaints and non stop bitching that it’s everyone’s fault they got stuck but their own.
Pull them out a second time, without so much as a thank you, and surprise! surprise! drive right back in and get stuck a third time.
This was not the exception, it was the norm for people from the north.
I also don’t like hearing people from the north, who somehow always believe they have to be the loudest person in the room, going on and on about how people from Texas, and the south in general, are ignorant, stupid, racist.
That’s what they think of Texas and the south they can keep their goat smelling butts up north as far as I care.
Many snowbirds are liberals.
Consider yourself lucky.
A friend of mine was selling real estate in Austin a couple of years ago.
He said he never understood what his dad and I were talking about when we said how obnoxious people from the north were.
After a couple months selling real estate he said the only people more obnoxious then the liberal Californians moving into Austin was the liberal New Yorkers moving in.
Heck, they try their best to deny the medieval warm period even existed despite ice core and other data stating unequivocally that yes it did indeed happen, and it was much warmer than today.
“... Secretariat of State John Kerry ...”
Heh, heh. No kidding.
That's why I've been saying scroo the Men Seeking Men Media for years.
They are not going to do our dirty work for us.
Not to hijack my own thread, but, as much as I enjoy listening to the big boys of Conservative talk radio, it's annoying when they get their panties all wadded up when the NYT or CNN or (insert name of major news service here) don't cover a story or doesn't cover it to their satisfaction.
It makes me wonder. Do the executives at Ford rant and rave when Government Motors won't fix a flaw in one of its vehicles?
Isn’t that the truth...
