Laurie David Continues Her Global Warming Chicken Little Act
NewsBusters ^ | August 27, 2007 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 08/27/2007 4:43:49 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Storms! Floods! Riots! Looting! Blackouts! These are all the things that Laurie David is back to warning us about in her latest Huffington Post blog, This is the Face of Global Warming:

As severe storms and the resultant flooding continue to batter the Midwest with deadly results, the media is filled with scary stories of the destruction and misery being inflicted. We see headlines about 300,000 Chicagoans without power, state of emergency declarations across four other states, dozens killed by storms from Texas to Minnesota, flooded interstates, and thousands of flooded homes and businesses. It's now commonplace to see news footage of people being rescued off their rooftops, many saying goodbye to their homes for good.

Yeah, like we never saw footage of extreme climatic events before. Going way back, we can even read of weather catastrophes in the Bible. Ever hear of Noah and the Great Flood, Laurie? Or was that another example of Global Warming? Now Laurie David seems a bit upset that EVERY unusual weather event is not immediately ascribed to Global Warming:

But no news outlet has had the courage to state the obvious: This is the face of global warming. This is it. While no single weather event can be directly pinned to global warming, these are the predictions of the world's best scientist come to terrifying life. Scientists are certain that these deadly events will only become more common -- and more extreme -- as the earth continues to heat up. More intense rainfall, more extreme flooding, more crippled infrastructure and unsanitary conditions, more homes and businesses lost. More, more, more...

More, more, more... Cluck! Cluck! The sky is falling because not every news outlet is buying into Laurie David's Global Warming fantasy. Ms. David then takes which are weather events that have been happening for centuries and works herself into a Global Warming alarmist lather while simultaneously engaging in her obsession about Karl Rove:

These glimpses from storm-ravaged Middle America ought to be a wake-up call. How many more American lives must be lost and property destroyed for this administration to take action?

What will the next pictures look like? Blackouts? Looting? Riots?

Will it have to reach the level of Southeast Asia, where the worst floods in recent memory have affected an estimated 28 million people? In Bangladesh at least 678 are dead and over 50,000 are suffering from flood-related diseases -- millions more now find themselves homeless.

What's it going to take for this White House to act? I hope not that.

Karl Rove should do one last thing before he heads back to Texas to spend more time with his family, bailing out his own flooded basement: he should have the courage to demand that the administration face this problem and DO SOMETHING.

Yes, Laurie. I'll DO SOMETHING. I plan to watch again that hilarious South Park episode, Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow, which accurately satirizes Global Warming alarmists such as yourself.

The Galveston Flood of 1900. Surely this was caused by Global Warming.

Heppner, Oregon, washed away by Global Warming in 1903

Clearly there was significant Global Warming in the 1900s.

LAURIE DAVID: "Scientists are certain that these deadly events will only become more common..."

Oh God No! The wind, rain, and clouds are all going to become more "commoner!"

Now, if the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi had collapsed during a surge down the Mississippi, from a flood caused by torrential rains, do you suppose the industrious ants of Capitol Hill would be calling for a gasoline tax increase? Of course not, they would be calling for a Carbon Tax to apply to ALL forms of energy.

As a result of global warming, doncha know.

A matter of physics and chemistry: Carbon dioxide could increase to several magnitudes of its present concentration in the atmosphere, and have absolutely no detectable influence on earth’s average temperature. Water vapor ALONE has many times the effect as a greenhouse gas, than CO2 ever could.

Just because there is so much of it, and the variation of its concentration in the atmosphere changes literally from minute to minute.

7 of the 11 hottest years in the USA all occurred before 1955.

Unfortunately, more people are jumping on the BS line, with new shows on the Discovery and “Science” Channel, in addition to the “Global Warming” Weather Channel.

Laurie, don't forget the thousands who died in Paris in 2003. Oh, wait! Does it count if socialists die in extreme weather conditions?

I’m reading up on the Antarctic in anticipation of a vacation trip to that continent.

Antarctic Science, editied by D.H.W. Walton, Cambridge University Press, 1987

Page 220

(I haven’t had to do footnotes in years, so pardon me.)

“Ice cores from the Antarctic ice cap can provide baseline information on CO2 levels for before the industrial revolution and insights into the consequences of CO2 changes contained in the geological record. The latter reveals a very interesting paradox. The mean level, and total change in CO2 over the past 100 years, is not significantly different from that which pertained during the 5000 years of warming marking the end of the last ice age 20,000 years ago. This appeared to have been accompanied by a mean temperature increase of about 7 degrees C, but no such increase has occurred in the past century. It is unclear how this paradox can be resolved...:

“It is unclear how this paradox can be resolved.”

People are convinced, it is going to be very difficult to turn this around. It is not expected, by them, to cause any real harm for years.

She is right...a series of floods rampaged through 4 states and severly altered the landscape(600 foot high volcano was under hundreds of feet of swiftly moving flood waters that created a gravel bar 200 feet high and miles long)and the cause was directly linked to global warming...the Glacial Lake Missouls floods of 10,000 years(or so) ago. Link provided to this event caused by President Bush(who else?).

From your link:

Spies have noticed activity at the Davids' sprawling 76-acre compound in the island's Chilmark neighborhood - which they call "Camp David."

Seventy-six acres on Martha's Vineyard? I knew SEINFELD had been very good to Larry David but had no idea how good......

From the UCONN library web site:

“The Flood of 1936
On March 12, 1936, rain began falling across Connecticut. The state had already been covered with a blanket of six to eight inches of snow. Rains poured down for the next nine days and dropped up to fourteen inches on already saturated and frozen land. These incredible forces of nature unleashed on Connecticut the greatest floods in its history to that date. The Connecticut and Farmington Rivers and all of their tributaries became raging torrents. Ice flows added to the destruction. Water and ice tore out bridges, highways, roads, and railways. The dam at New Hartford burst, and homes and buildings were washed away or destroyed. Fourteen thousand people were left homeless, several were dead or missing, and epidemic disease threatened the population. The National Guard was called to action as the ravaging floods paralyzed business, traffic, communication, and home life, as the cities and towns along the rivers became the principal centers of destruction.”

My dad was in the naval reserves at the time. His unit got called to duty to try to save merchandise from stores in the flooded area.

I’m happy to report that the local liquor store got its merchandise back.minus a few bottles that somehow “disappeared” along the way.

Hey I'm no "scientist" but if we have more rain wouldn't that cool down the earth's temp? I mean if it's raining all the time then the evil carbon dioxide would not rise into the atmosphere and the surface would be bathed in cooling rains.

But hey what do I know, I use as much toilet paper as necessary to get the job done!

OK.

Check my dates for me:

20,000 years ago marks the end (maximum ?) of the last Ice Age? Thought that was 50,000 years ago.

Or is 10,000 years ago marking the recovery from the last (minor) ice age? (Assume 12,000 years ago being the Clovis campsites that were introduced by people crossing the Bering Sea on foot from Siberia only to get wiped out by a comet impact in Canada); and the beginning of agriculture in the lower MidEast valleys?

Are we overdue for the resumption of the last minor ice age by 2000 years?

Or at the peak of the routine 100,000 year Ice Age max temperatures, getting ready for a major drop of ten degree C in the next 800 years?

Who knows anymore?

The problem is the media is populated with celebrity sensation junkies trying to make their (dubious) careers on the backs of facts they don’t understand that don’t even mesh because everyone is fiddling with them.

I just know from what I’ve read that the Arctic is warming, but the Antarctic is cooling. That the sun plays a major role in this and the hysteria is nuts from the climate change commies.

“What’s it going to take for this White House to act?”

Thing is, she and the others of similar thought will criticize even that!

One would have thought that the Bush Doctrine, which promised to rid Iraq of a brutal dictator and sow the seeds of real democracy in the Middle East, would have sent the left into a frenzied dance of joy ... but no.

No wonder Micheal Savage calls liberalism a disease. It’s a mental disorder, for sure, who can only see the world in terms of black and white.
