MORE GLOBAL WARMING MYTHS
Fiedor Report On the News #276 ^ | 9-6-02 | Doug Fiedor

Posted on 06/08/2002 10:43:45 AM PDT by forest

So, the eco-whackos at EPA sent out one of their regularly scheduled "Administrative Reports" on global warming to the United Nations again. This time, some desk- bound, far-left resident bureaucrat also sent the "report" to the media as an "official" administrative response.

. . . Yawn. . . .

Problem is, they forgot to show it to the adults in the administration first. So, the "report" received a couple days free play by the liberal media before President Bush put the kibosh on that foolishness.

Perhaps a little about the public schizophrenia of these bureaucrats and their counterparts could be instructive. For instance, back in the 1970s, the capitalism haters on the far-left started rumors that, if Man did not change his ways, Man would cause a new ice age. They brought out their charts and graphs -- and trotted out a couple scientists who happened to be famous in fields that had nothing whatsoever to do with climate changes -- and attempted to convince the masses.

Many of us still remember those hilarious stories of "nuclear winter" and one wag even got on TV and postulated that a certain volcano out in Washington could and might throw the whole Northern hemisphere into winter when it blew its top. It was all sensational stuff, so the national media encouraged them to babble on. Eventually, the volcano did bring up a major Earth belch, but there was no affect on the nation's weather and those "scientists" finally had to go away and be quiet.

Well, it's always something. So, when they regrouped, they came back with a full court press of charts and graphs, and of course, their silly computer models. Yeah, it's global warming this time.

But wait just a cotton-picken' second here! They were 100% totally wrong last time. They still cannot get a five day weather forecast correct. Yet, we are expected to not laugh in their faces when they "project" massive global warming problems twenty years down the road?

How silly!

Back in my school days, a few decades ago, I was taught that the Earth is still coming out of the last ice age. All indications seem to point to the truth of that. Glaciers are still melting, there is a very slight warming trend sometimes evident in some areas of the world. Crops are growing better in many areas of the world. And, more and more people are moving to northern areas and are living relatively comfortably.

There's something not to like here? What?

Oh, the ozone hole.

What do we actually know about that ozone hole? Turns out, not much. That's because we do not really have any history to fall back on. Yet another problem is that we are in a rather goofy sun-spot cycle that is not always behaving as expected. That could very much affect the ozone and our weather.

What really affects the ozone hole? In truth, we do not really know -- not for sure, anyway. Two bits says the sun's activity has a great deal to do with it.

In the Northern Hemisphere, we like to watch the northern lights(1), or Aurora Borealis. That light show is caused by a collision between a combination of the gases in the atmosphere and the billions of incoming electrically charged solar particles from the sun. Does that activity affect the ozone?

Of course, there are also "southern lights"(2) that are just as spectacular. How do these activities affect our atmosphere and how long has this been going on?

Oh, never mind. We don't need to know that. The eco-whackos want us to believe they have all of nature's answers and it is the capitalists who are the perpetrators of all ills.

So, okay, they will admit that it is periodic activity of the sun causing some of our atmospheric cycles. Therefore, they branched out a little and now would have us believe that man is expanding the planet's carbon dioxide -- one of Earths most plentiful gasses -- and that is what will cause global warming.

Cute story; but no cigar that time, either. Because, one newly active volcano can put as much CO2 in the atmosphere in a few minutes as the whole of our nation can in a decade. So, how many active volcanoes are there in the world at any one time? Besides, all the green stuff these eco-whackos like to see growing would prosper greatly if there were any increase in CO2. Are our farmers noticing larger and faster growing crops yet? For more of the real story on CO2, visit the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change.(4)

There's yet another little problem that needs addressing. All these "scientists" quoted so liberally by the popular media are government funded through grants and whatnot. And, let's face it folks, those liberal bureaucratic holdovers from the Clinton Administration will not give out grants to researchers working to disprove the global warming myth. All these university people know that they either stick with the party line or not get any more free money.

In short, we should treat them today just like we did back when they came out with all those silly "global cooling" stories: Laugh at them.

Global warming is real!

I've noticed an undeniable temperature rise where I live over the last several months. I'll bet most of you have too!

If I remember correctly that is not quite accurate. It did have an effect on the weather but the effect was very short lived. Six months to a year I believe. Volcanoes do have an effect on the earth's weather but unless it is a super volcano or several blowing their tops in a very short period the effect is extremely short lived. Even if that were to happen the earth would be back to near normal in just a few years. Maybe three to five.

Hmmm, now that you mention it, I've noticed that too.

I predict that we will begin experiencing global cooling in just three more months!

We've been experiencing global warming since the end of the last ice age.

Now, they were upset that we might have some global cooling, and then they became upset that there might be some global warming. Will they go bonkers if we experience some global-sameness?

That's BS, we're having snow down to 4000 ft.

It's 1200 hours and 58 degrees here at 500 ft elevation...what warming trend... ??

Global Warming is a myth, we go through cycles...

Stop the attacks by the wacko, enviro-nazis terrorist's on our Freedoms !!

Freedom Is Worth Fighting For !!

Uh, I think you missed the guy's point. Most of the people in the northern hemisphere are experiencing a current warming trend which will probably persist for a few more months before there's a major cooling trend. Of course, these alternating heating and cooling trends have been going on yearly for millenia; in less-hysterical times they were called "seasons".

So, the "report" received a couple days free play by the liberal media before President Bush put the kibosh on that foolishness.

Polics is a game and only the best players win. All elections are decided by swing voters. Those that vote for the Repubicans sometimes and Democrats other times always determines the winner. Neither party has a majority of supporters. If one party did it would always win. But in the real world the party that gets the wishy washy middle wins.

The middle is not pro greenie and it is not anti greenie. It is middle greenie. It is the middle on everthing. The trick is for a winner to convince the middle that the winner is really middle to. So if the left can position the Republican as anti Greenie the left guy will tend to get the squishy middle guys vote. The left just needs the appearance of middling along.

But if the left guy is painted leftie and bush is painted sorta center to the middle, then bush wins.

Then the media prints a headline that says Nation makes turn to the right. Bush claims victory for the right agenda. But to get their the middle has to see Bush as the middle.

But if the left gets the squishy middle by moving to the right,the media prints a headline that says Nation makes a turn to the left. Gore claims victory for the lefts agenda.\

The game is the squishy middle. Nothing helps your image with the middle like a report mailed to a UN waste basket that says global warming could be very real. The squishy middle forgets the rejection of the Kyoto treaty and says... gee Bush is pretty centerist isn't he.

To turn left or right, you have to first go to the center. All other attemps fail.

Of course, the Earth's global warming trend has recently gone into thermal runaway.

The average temperature in North America has gone up 65 Degrees F in the last 6 months since December. At that rate, it will be 215 Degrees F by June, 2003.

I was in Portland, OR when St. Helens blew. Though only 50 air miles away, we didn't even hear it because it blew the opposite direction. We did get some glass in the air from the second blow. But I don't recall any change in the weather, at least nothing to write home about.

They are using this myth about global warming for two reasons! One! for the EPA to justify its existence hence it has to "protect the envirement andTWO! Like prohibition, it is an issue made to order to let the bloated FEDERAL GOVERNMENT have more control over the citizenry. The earth has been in existence for millions of years and the USA for what 225 years? so now the big brothers in Wash DC are going to "SAVE" the earth by turning us into a third world nation?I'm going to store my two cars and buy an ox cart to go to work in!HA

But I bet you the people down under are experiencing over the past few months steadily lowering temperatures. It's definitely global cooling.  ;-)

It wouldn't have been much of a change. Maybe a two degree drop overall for that summer if that. The ash and debris would have blocked a small, very small, almost itty-bitty portion of sunlight. If you weren't looking for it you would not have noticed it at all.

Instead of being 92 it was 90.05. Big whoop-de-doo.

A really big blowout like in the 1800's could cause more change. I think England had a year where it snowed in June? not sure of the year but it was the early 1800's. The next year things were back to normal.

I was involved with this. I'll make a long story short.

The environmentalists in Pennsylvania were trying to switch all the asphalt area of the Pennsylvania Turnpike to cement. Asphalt is oil based (bad) and cement slag (good) based. In 1992, they switched a good portion to cement.

Results: That wooded area is dying at a record pace because of the heat and radiation reflecting from the cement. Don't believe me? Drive from Breezewood east, up the big hill to the next exit. You will see trees dying by the millions.

Of course, now they are switching back to asphalt.

You bet it is. Just come to Texas in June, July, or August and see for yourself. It gets hot as hellz. Oh, if you come in Jan. or Feb. wear your parka. We have global cooling too.

Snowing in 7 western states this morning (June 9th), according to the radar map. Seems pretty late in the year for snow.

Global warming is nothing but pork for scientists. Global warming is used by politicians to gain power. Global warming is pure B.S. I don't buy it, too bad. Research scientists use the issue to get MONEY. Politicians use the issue to control the money, that gives them power. What do you think of that greenies?
