Skip to comments."Warming Up" To Junk Science (EVERYTHING "Proves" Global Warming)
Posted on 12/28/2010 6:29:36 AM PST by suspects
you spent part of Christmas weekend stuck in a foot of snow - er, make that climate fluff - you may have found yourself asking Whatever happened to all that global warming Al Gore kept yelling about a few years ago?
According to members of the government/science funding axis pushing the theory of Anthropomorphic Global Warming - aka Your Pick-Up Is Frying Our Planet - the mountains of snowfall across North America actually prove the Earth is warming. Believe it or not, they say, warming actually makes the Earth colder.
Sounds crazy, but as the Potsdam Institute of Climate Research announced last Tuesday, man-made global warming could cause polar winds to make their way to Europe and North Asia, whereby the probability of cold winters triples.
See? More cold proves global warming.
That very day a Professor Stephan Rahmstorf released a report saying climate change means we have to anticipate milder winters rather than cold ones, and that even our cold winters have gotten warmer.
He says more warmth, not more cold, is proof of global warming. And who is this nut? Hes a scientist at the same Potsdam Institute.
Which is why climate change is the perfect mantra of the modern bureaucrat and big-government activist: The evidence always proves you right.
You might be surprised, for example, to learn that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming. You might be even more surprised by the news that, since 2002, temperature trends have been downward, though by statistically insignificant amounts.
But the real kicker is that the guy who happily reported these facts is uber-warming activist...

Well, I wouldn't burn anything in a wood stove anyway. It might catch on fire.
However, 'stone age' men burned their wood in or on something, and used it not only to cook, but to provide heat. I believe they made their stoves out of rocks, instead of iron, or brick, but they had stoves.

Yup. Stone, clay, and brick, but Ben Franklin’s steel fireplace was definitely a quantum leap in heating efficiency, though not designed for cooking.
We actually have a soapstone heating stove, as well as a cast iron one. Our water is heated in a steel stove, and our cookstove is Amish-built with steel.
Could be OCD
In other words, they would be LIKE GODS, deciding who lives, who dies. Of course, THEY are always on the KEEPER list. Always.
So, you returned to the Iron Age.
Original Comment Duplicates????
Memorize this little passage from Dicken's Christmas Carol. It's an exchange between the Gost of Christmas Present and old Scrooge.
Repeat it when encountering those who want to decrease the surplus population.
"Man," said the Ghost, "if man you be in heart, not adamant, forbear that wicked cant until you have discovered what the surplus is and where it is. Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be that in the sight of heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man's child. O God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust!"
> So, you returned to the Iron Age.
Well, I guess you could say we have one foot in the stone age and one foot in the iron age.
AGW is more certain than GW. Adding CO2 to the atmosphere results in warming. What is pure BS is CAGW, there is no evidence of amplification of the slight warming from the extra CO2. As for GW, as said above, there is no statistically significant GW trend in the last 15 years. That implies that the small amount of AGW is exceeded by natural variations.
Quite a stutter you’ve got there.
Of course, if this current cooling continues, we may be praying for more CO2 in the air.....
“We call it layering in MI.”
Same thing I call it;>) You wanta see climate change? Come down here where we just had snow the day after Christmas and I can still see snow on the ground from my window. We actually EXPECT snow at least once every winter now even though we used to go year after year without a flake. We don’t expect a white Christmas though, the only one I had ever seen was Christmas eve of 1989, I don’t know whether you can call this a white Christmas but it’s close enough.
Back in the seventies we had deer hunters whining about not being able to sit on a stand in December without sweating! Now they are bundling up like Eskimos.
Heads they win, tails we lose.
“...We actually have a soapstone heating stove...”
With a glass (treated of course) door or side window, airtight soapstone wood stoves emit more of a warmth than heat. I say more enjoyable than a fireplace where 90% of that heat goes up the chimney.
> With a glass (treated of course) door or side window
Ours is a Hearthstone Mansfield with a glass door.
> emit more of a warmth than heat
Well said! It’s a great stove. The warmth permeates the entire house, once the stone heats up. Doesn’t heat up as quickly as cast iron or steel, but I like the warmth better.
Funny how the television versions don’t quote that line. But they do make Scrooge to be a miser.
