If youre like me this will send chills down your spine.
Nature Climate Change recently published a paper that contends that temperate zones will see reduced crop yields by 2030, presumably plunging the world into a man-caused famine not seen since the last time communists were in charge.
From Blue and Green Tomorrow:
As more data have become available, weve seen a shift in consensus, telling us that the impacts of climate change in temperate regions will happen sooner rather than later, said Professor Andy Challinor, lead author of the study.
Yes, any time I see the word consensus in the context of the "settled science" of global something I break out into a cold sweat, I hyperventilate and my sight grows dim.
And that should happen to you too.
Because I next wonder: How much is this going to cost me exactly?
But then I remember, upon studied reflection, that every time the WeatherNazis come to a consensus about anything theyre as wrong Hitler was in invading Russia without winter clothing.
Oh, dont worry, he said. Its gonna be a lot warmer than people think.
Certainly, its a lot warmer for him now.
For the estimated $100 billion annually that we will be spending on climate change programs by 2020, Im thinking that there might be a better way to spend that money, like terraforming Mars for human population or throwing a really big Fourth of July Parade.
These are certainly better ideas than the rationing of electricity, wearing clothes made exclusively of hemp and dating chicks with hairy armpits.
Or driving a Chevy Volt.
But the news gets worse for liberals.
The indoor hemp industry apparently produces the same amount of carbon in the atmosphere as 3 million cars.
'[I]ndoor Cannabis production uses 1% of the nations entire electricity consumption,' reports Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researcher Evan Mills in the Huffington Post. 'This comes to energy expenditures of $5 billion per year.' While 1% may not seem like a lot, the report claims that smoking one single Cannabis joint is equivalent to running a 100-watt light bulb for 17 hours. That Cannabis cigarette carries two pounds of CO2 emissions."
I don't know what a gram of dope costs these days, but that's a lot of carbon for a gram.
While the doomsday date for the final destruction of mankind due to global warming gets pushed back farther and farther, Im wondering if any of these WeatherNazis actually understand human history.
It would be wonderful if human activity could warm the planet.
The danger to civilization isnt a warm planet, but a cold one.
It was only with the retreat of the last Ice Age that the ascendancy of modern man took hold. Without that, wed all be living in caves, each of us ineligible to be president of the United States because wed all still live in Kenya.
Instead we live in the house of cards that the president of the United States builtwho by the way was born in Hawaii, a place much warmer than most of the globe; and presumably what Montana will be a lot like in the global something future.
Weather does influence culture, but not in the ways the alarmists would have you believe.
A new study by Matthew Ransonno relation (my relatives know how to spell)made possible by a fellowship from Harvard, predicts that because of global warming crime will spike, with your daughters unsafe to roam the streets day or night.
The results show that temperature has a strong positive effect on criminal behavior, writes Ranson, with little evidence of lagged impacts. Between 2010 and 2099, climate change will cause an additional 22,000 murders, 180,000 cases of rape, 1.2 million aggravated assaults, 2.3 million simple assaults, 260,000 robberies, 1.3 million burglaries, 2.2 million cases of larceny, and 580,000 cases of vehicle theft in the United States.
See and all this time I thought that dinosaurs failed to adapt and thus became extinct.
I never knew it was dino-on-dino crime caused by high global temperatures.
And so reports like these send chills down my spine.
Because believe me: Itll cost us. One way or another, itll cost us.
Thats the liberal way.

You’re gonna send the brain dead hippies into an apoplectic fit of hysteria with that factoid, Westy.
Braking? How about Breaking?
Don’t we have one of those cartoons showing the man carrying a sign saying, “The End of the World is Near.” to post with these AGW threads?
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Siberia.......
the new temperate acreage is so vast it is uncountable

And, after all, it’s “settled science”!
“Settled Science Breaking Into a Cold Sweat”
They need not worry.
Progressive causes will be with us for generations as a goose-stepping electorate keeps pulling the lever for them.
Science is not consensus.
Nor is it ever settled.
Here in Denver, on the 12th of May, we’re shoveling A FOOT OF “GLOBAL WARMING” from our walks and driveways.
As I recall, the Nazis all debunked Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity as “Jew Science”. That was also “settled science” and “consensus” in Hitler’s Germany.
That is indeed how it is misspelled at the link.
The alarmists should get a good chuckle over that!
Oh, dont worry, he said. Its gonna be a lot warmer than people think.
Piers Corbyn thinks otherwise.
In his talk, Piers Corbyn described the failure of standard meteorology (SM) in outlook, theory, and practice. He included: signals in real meteorology data unexplained by SM; real role of jet stream, stratosphere, electro-jets, magnetosphere, solar wind, solar corona, and the Moon; the total inability of SM to explain: sudden stratospheric warmings and its consequences, tropical storm intensifications, angular momentum concentration in tornadoes; and the need for something else such as electromagnetic plasma explanations; the theoretical basis of non-standard long range weather forecasting on a real planet; a summary on his WeatherAction forecasting skill and examples; and the future of forecasting and meteorology, climate ‘science’ and science in general.
Piers Corbyn began recording weather and climate patterns at the age of five, constructing his own observation equipment. He obtained a first-class honors degree in physics at Imperial College London. In 1969, he became the first president of the Imperial College Students’ Union to be directly elected by the student body. He later studied astrophysics in 1979 at Queen Mary College, London, and then began examining the relationship between Earth’s weather and climate and solar activity. Following many years of weather prediction as an occupation, Piers formed WeatherAction in 1995, where he sells web-accessible long-range monthly forecasts for Britain and Ireland, Europe, and the USA plus special forecasts of ‘Red Weather periods’ and related increases in thunder/tornado and earthquake risk.
If they’d just let them grow it in the sunlight...
This is as far as I got before having to post. I will finish the article following this. But I had to roll my eyes. The most "reduced crop yields" risk we face has far more to do with government regulations, restrictions and incentives than weather. Further proof of the farce that is Man Mad Global Warming.
No I'll read the rest of the article.
Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....
...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...
....to increase it's magnetic field....
and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....
(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.
The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.
Good luck surviving with less electricity and GE modified seeds.

Dude, that harshes my mellow.
Yeah....and a 1.2 degree drop in global temperature results in a estimated 21% drop in grain production.
Looks like we headed for another Maunder Minimum.
