    It would appear then that slightly increasing concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide and temperature stasis over 20 years have done absolutely nothing to threaten the Penguins In 2008, historian Meredith Hooper published her book: “The Ferocious Summer. Adélie Penguins and the warming of Antarctica.” (Greystone Books, Vancouver, British Columbia.) We are told that “This book is a fascinating and alarming report from the frontlines of global warming” and not surprisingly we find the following message on the book’s front cover from serial alarmist Dr. David Suzuki: “Like canaries in a coal mine, penguins present an undeniable and urgent warning of...

    The Great Recession Blog ^ | February 3, 2019 | David Haggith
    I wrote months ago about the coming mini ice age. Recently the reality of this cooling trend became mainstream news because of a new scientific study affirming it, and even more recently, the midwest decided to remind us of what mini ice ages might feel like. The reason for all of this is told here: The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018, and the sun’s ultraviolet output has sharply dropped. New research shows that Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding. “We see a cooling trend,” says...

    Powerline ^ | 2 Feb 2019 | Steven Hayward
    As everyone knows, the upper midwest, including Power Line Central Command in Minnesota, has been suffering from some extreme climate change this week. Because everything is caused by climate change. Even Donald Trump’s hairdo. Out here at Power Line Pacific Command on the Left Coast, we’re having some rain, but otherwise I’m in my shirtsleeves as usual. But first, we have to lead with this (and happy Groundhog Day, by the way):
  • How cold is it? Londo Molari from Babylon 5 explains how cold it is.... ~ Humor

    Londo Mollari: When I said my quarters were cold, I did not mean, 'Oh, I think it's a little chilly in here, perhaps I'll throw a blanket on the bed.' No, I said it was cold, as in 'Oh, my left arm has snapped off like an icicle and shattered on the floor!' This is highly inappropriate, Captain! Sheridan: [smirking] You're right. There are several other parts of your body I'd much rather see snapped off.
  • The New Language of Climate Change (the latest strategy to dupe deniers)

    Politico ^ | 1/27/19 | BRYAN BENDER
    PHOENIX - Leading climate scientists and meteorologists are banking on a new strategy for talking about climate change: Take the politics out of it. That means avoiding the phrase “climate change,” so loaded with partisan connotations as it is. Stop talking about who or what is most responsible. And focus instead on what is happening and how unusual it is - and what it is costing communities. **SNIP** The hope is to persuade the small but powerful minority that stands in the way of new policies to mitigate climate change’s worst long-term effects - as well as the people who...
  • Are electric cars worse for the environment? (sure looks that way)

    **SNIP** To answer that question, I used the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s most recent long-term forecasts for the number of new electric vehicles through 2050, estimated how much electricity they’d use, and then figured out how much pollution that electricity would generate, looking at three key pollutants regulated under the U.S. Clean Air Act—sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and particulates—as well as CO2 emissions. I compared them to the emissions of new gasoline-powered vehicles, using the EIA’s “real world” miles-per-gallon forecast, rather than the higher CAFE standard values. What I found is that widespread adoption of electric vehicles...

    A skunk may be after my flowers. I used to have a flower garden in my backyard. A few years ago I decided to move my flowers to the front yard so my neighbors could enjoy them. I found that I could keep some them blooming in the winter by surrounding them with water in containers and covering them with transparent tarps. On warm days I uncover them so can enjoy the ones that are still green or even blooming. They often begin growing again in early March so they are doing well by the end of April. A week...

    China is the leading emitter of CO2 among the nations of the world. Its CO2 emissions are more than double those of the United States. Yet, the Paris Accord negotiated by former President Obama exempts China from contributing to pollution emission reductions. On top of that, the Accord obligates signers from developed nations to pay less developed nations $100 billion per year in climate related aid starting in 2020. Xie Zhenhua, China’s lead envoy at the United Nations conference on global warming in Poland, castigated the developed countries for “neglecting to compensate us for the environmental damage they have done...

    Newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MY) vowed to "mete out sweet revenge" in response to Donald Trump Jr. sharing a meme predicting that if her socialist views are implemented Americans would end up eating their dogs. "He may think he's clever mocking me," Ocasio-Cortez said, "but in another month I'll have the subpoena power I need to make his life a living Hell. On the specific topic of eating dogs, though, Junior is overlooking the positive impact that would have on mitigating global warming. So really, the joke is on him." In related news, Google advised journalist John Stossel that...

    It is incredibly important to understand that as the weather turns bitterly cold in the north, people will begin to migrate south. This not merely cause the Greeks to become the Sea Peoples, but during the Year without a Summer in 1816 even in the States when six inches of snow fell in June and every month of the year had a hard frost, people began to migrate. The temperatures had dropped to as low as 40 degrees in July and August in New York City during 1816. People also called it ‘Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death’ and the...

    There is a lot more to Climate Change than the dire predictions that we will be eating each other by now. The Sahara Desert was once lush and green. Then the weather systems shifted and the once fertile land turns to desert. The Sphinx is believed to have the face of Khafra of the 4th dynasty during the Old Kingdom which was carved perhaps around 2500BC. Some believe that the Sphinx predates the Egyptians and was actually a lion because there appear to be what some claim are water erosion marks. If true, then the original Sphinx may have existed...

    Believe it or not, pretend Scientists are actuall proposing to create a synthetic Volcanic Winter by spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere the same as a volcanoe when it erupts. These pretend research scientists at Harvard and Yale universities have published in the journal Environmental Research Letters proposing to inject an aerosol (SAI) to reduce the rate of global warming. They have propsed a completely unproven attempt to alter the planet using a technique involving spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. They argue to deliver the sulfates...

    While NASA has now confirmed that the outer atmosphere is getting cooler, it seems desperately insane for people to keep denying the possibility the Global Cooling is taking place rather than Global Warming when the former brings famine and the latter brings economic expansion as civilizations rise. The rise of Rome was due to global warming as was the case after the Dark Age when they call that the Medieval Warming Period which was 950 to 1300AD. The concern from just a technical model perspective is that the warming period we have had post-1600 and the low of the Little...

    Millions would like to tell Obama to "get on that 'widdle girlie bike and 'wide', 'wide' far, far away" Give that guy an Academy Award! The guy they call the ex-president of the U.S. who, according to the fawning mainstream media, was “the smartest guy in the room”. Barack Obama, henpecked by overbearing wife, Michelle and mentored in so many moves by former top advisor Valerie Jarrett, both of whom liked to remind the world how “tired” he was, has come out of ‘Resistance’ trashing President Donald Trump as ‘Confused, blind, shrouded with Hate…and having Mommy Issues’.
