751 Responses to Obama To Address Global Warming In Coldest SOU Address In History

  1. The puppet master asked the muppet master to raise the temperatures for him. It’s now 95 degrees according to GISS

    • Allen Clark says:

      I guess Obama is going to sign an executive order to make it illegal to disagree with anybody that believes we are in a global warming. He does have the power and there is no question that he is smarter than all the rest of us and we need his guidance.

  2. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Looks like Gaia is sending Barry a very focused message.

    Buy long underwear.

  3. Kepler says:

    I’m sure he will still sneak in a couple of brow wipes to remind everyone that global warming is “worse than we thought”.

  4. Andy Oz says:

    Ooooo!
    Climate Change we can Believe in!!!
    He’s just so inspirational!!
    10-1 the carbon tax is mentioned.

  5. omnologos says:

    positive anomaly up north and negative anomaly in the south means it’s bloody cold everywhere

  6. Shazaam says:

    Oh the irony…….

    If his heated undershorts make him sweat, it’ll freeze on his face.

  7. Ted says:

    Each of the following facts completely dispels the nonsense of global warming.

    -Ice ages have been coming and going for eons.
    -The last 15 years have shown zero warming.
    -Man produces less than 1/2 of 1 percent of C02 on the planet.
    -It was warmer in the 15 century than it is now.
    -The greatest warming in the 20th century was between 1935 and 1950.

    Liberals can’t handle facts.

    • HelloHello says:

      all correct

    • I am no Liberal, but your facts are false. You can read various scientific studies. I focus on fact. You are very misleading. Global temperatures are rising. That is FACT. The argument you political types make are if it is man made or not. That is up for debate. Check your facts against numerous scientific and meteorological documentation but some of the largest universities on the planet, then get back us. Thanks!

      • Declaring FACT with capital letters doesn’t change the fact that satellites show the Earth cooling since 1997

        NASA and NOAA Confirm Global Temperature Standstill Continues

        In a joint press conference NOAA and NASA have just released data for the global surface temperature for 2013. In summary they both show that the ‘pause’ in global surface temperature that began in 1997, according to some estimates, continues.

        • Awtrey says:

          Let us all accept that the earth’s climate is changing, and further, let’s accept that it is warming due to the amount of CO2 that is being put into the atmosphere by the use of fossil fuel. Present concentrations of CO2 are about 400 parts per million (PPM) and CO2 concentrations re increasing at a rate of about 2 PPM per year. Most climatologists agree that a concentration of 450 PPM is the point at which earth’s temperature will increase by 2 degrees Centigrade. Most climatologists also agree that a 2 degree rise in global temperatures is the point when bad things really start to happen… sea levels rise, coastal cities flooded , crops fail, etc. Let’s accept that too. So what to do? The key thing to know is that climate change is a global issue which cannot be resolved by the Western nations and the USA. The USA is putting much effort and a lot of money into alternative energy sources AKA, wind, solar and biomass for the primary reason of mitigating the effects of global warming. Sure. These alternative sources do lessen the production of CO2. The amount of CO2 not produced by this alternative energy is swamped by the CO2 produced by China, India and the developing world, and will be for the foreseeable future, because the USA cannot possibly ramp up enough alternative sources to make a difference.

          There are many who claim “someone has to lead the way”, “we must do something”. Faced with some facts should we waste time, effort and money to no avail?

        • steelyal says:

          Nasa in 2013 noted the growth of ice on both poles. Do they have a point of “view” ?

      • Jeff Wallace says:

        Heating and cooling of the earth is consistent with sun spot activity and it has more effect on earths temperatures than anything else including CO2 emissions and the ozone. Get a clue people, this global warming BS is a scheme to collect money from those who have and give it to the puppetmasters who then take for themselves and then give the remainder in the form of income redistribution to the non-productive lazy and dumb asses.

        • Ernest Bush says:

          Posting the same comment twice does not make it any truer. Let’s not accept that CO2 is causing global warming since it hasn’t warmed in 17 years while CO2 continues to rise. Let’s not spend any more billions chasing the dark fantasies of the global warming cult. Most scientist do not believe a rise to 450 ppm of CO2 will result in a massive change in global temperature, whatever that is. In fact, observations do not support any of your fevered fantasies.

  8. Craig Taylor says:

    I guess our “Failure-In-Chief” will blame racism for the supposed global warming..All those racists farting at the sight of him..Like cows warming the climate..

  9. Dwayne Keith says:

    Can some lefty loser please explain to me how sticking American industry…an by extension the American consumer and the American worker…with taxes aimed at combating climate change impact the Chinese or the Indians? We are and have been on a trajectory cleaning up our act here in the USA. Slap tariffs on goods coming from the offending countries if you must but leave the USA alone until such time as everyone else is greener than we are. It is all a ruse to attack capitalism. The communists didn’t disappear. They changed their name to progressives or community organizers. Green is simply the new Red.

  10. John Warrener says:

    If you want to keep your Global Warming, you can keep it….period!

  11. You Can’t Even Spell Liberalism Without L – I – E – S

  12. c. s. says:

    t’s true…we are jealous that Al Gore is now on his way to be a billionaire by trading stocks based on air. This is the reason that we want the climate scare to cease. Truth hurts.
    I could just see Ron Hubbard, Peter Braubeck and Al Gore setting around thinking about how to make money. Ron says “I got it. I create a religion based on fussy psuedo science ideas. It seemed to work for Kellogg.” Then, Peter states ” no, I’ll privatize water and sell it in plastic bottles for the price of softdrinks. I create a water shortage scares. No one can live without water!” Then, Al states “you guys are lame. I’m going to privatize air.” Peter and Ron look at Al in amazement and say “what? You can’t do that.” Al said “you watch. And I’ll tell the public to their face that if I’m lying that it would be the greatest scam in history. Oh, I’ll let them breathe inward. I’ll use the government to fine them when they breathe out.”
    Peter and Ron think “you’re the man, Al.”

    If this isn’t about money, why did 134 countries walk out on the request of being distributed $0.5 trillion annually to keep their own citizens in the Stone Age?
    Scientists need to pay their debts and ex-wives too. Why should Justin Bieber live the good life? He didn’t study hard.

    • marg1 says:

      Type in “Jessie Ventura, Rothschild, Strong, global currency” to see quite a convincing take on what is actually happening with the global warming scam.

  13. What a joke this guy is. He will surely blame the cold weather on global warming.

  15. Bill Doss says:

    Ya here we go. A theory or hypothesis that every event proves but nothing can disprove..ingenious. ..simply ingenious

  19. bob says:

    Of course it’s global warming when you have your head up your ASS!!

  20. Machismo says:

    Obama is becoming a laughing stock, but of jokes, and not taken seriously as a world leader. Not only by the World realm, but by his own people. No one believes a word he says anymore because of all of the broken promises and out right lies to the US Citizen. The Middle class is under economic attack while the President ,US Senators and Congress are lavish with their own customized health Care plans. Everything they do is not serving the General public, but destroying from with…Like Rome.

  21. Juan Ortega says:

    This cold weather is all Bush’s fault, but as we speak, Al Gore is working feverishly in his garage lab to remedy the situation.

  22. fortsteve says:

    Will anyone other than news pundits be watching this idiot talk? His presidency is on it’s way down the slippery slope of irrelevancy and total failure. The mid term elections cannot come soon enough.

  23. Hiram Hannah says:

    Truly, does nobody understand that 2013 was the fourth hottest year in recorded history?

    Nine of the 10th warmest years on record have happened in the 21st century. The hottest year was 2010, according to NOAA.

    It’s not a liberal or conservative thing. It’s reading a gauge.

    • More accurate satellites showed 2013 10th warmest since 1979, close to the median.

    • Steve Beckle says:

      That’s not the point. It’s never been proved to be man made, so attempts to control it through punitive treaties and taxes is stupid.

      • paul johnson says:

        true, like what is man going to do to corral Mother Nature? Hell, we’re one gamma ray burst from the sun from being totally toasted on this planet. It’s not to say that we can’t try to keep things in line, but it shouldn’t be done in a punitive measure such as taxes or over reaching regulations from the EPA Nazis.

    • jakester says:

      This is bogus bull. You and those with your leftist ideology make up statistics and put them out there hoping that no one will check them. This trick is old, tired and no longer effective. Al Gore is a fraud and so are you…..

    • Frozen says:

      The thing that is never brought up is that weather records go back about 150 years. 150 years of records vs billions of years of this planet’s existence means absolutely nothing. Did SUVs and farting cows end the ice age? 10,000 years ago the sahara desert was green and full of life. Those Egyptians with their polluting chariots and pyramids must have been the cause of that too.

    • 14.4% of ALL years are rated #1. 62.9% of ALL years are in the top 10. When you’re coming out of the coldest period in 10,000 years, and start recording temperatures at the bottom, you’re going to get records. Lots of them:

  24. Hill411 says:

    Obamaclimate, if you like it you can keep it. PERIOD! If you like your rainfall, you can keep it. If you like your sunshine you can keep it. If you do not like cold weather, it will be equally distributed among everyone. TOO HOT? Same thing! What! You haven’t read the legislation? No problem! We will find out what is in Obamaclimate after we pass it. Trust me.

      • Hiram Hannah says:

        But it’s warm at my house. Isn’t that all that matters? I’ve never met denser material in my entire life.

          Read: “If you disagree with me, I wont consider the value in what you’re saying. I only think under one condition — how to justify the preconceptions I’ve been given.”

          “In political jargon, useful idiot is a pejorative term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The term has been used to refer to Soviet sympathizers in Western countries. …”

    • Jennifer says:

      Why is everything always compared to 1880? Why do we think that 1880 – as our planet is emerging from the Little Ice Age – is the ideal global temperature?

      • John (Omaha) says:

        Salient point. I would add that beyond ‘ideal’, perhaps a word to replace it could be ‘pertinent’. The left always does that. Like the last 17 years showing no warming, now they want to go back exactly 30 years. More or less and their point is shown for the farce that it is: They have no idea how the earth’s climate naturally changes, nor do they have any idea the potential impact or lack of an impact man has. But they know they trust the government. And the government knows it wants money and power.

    • Ernest Bush says:

      Surely you don’t think anybody serious on this site is going to accept a chart from any site that has the word progress in it and is a dot org to boot. Can you say Soros money? In addition that chart is known to be a work of fiction by most of the people who comment on this site. What this means is that obviously you are a troll.

  30. itsy_bitsy says:

    It’s time for Gore and Obama to stop the phony “global warming” mantra! It’s cr@p whose only purpose is to force the country into giving up the most efficient fuels for FAR less efficient ones! If your electric source uses coal, you can depend on it when you turn up your thermostat, same goes with other fossil fuels, but if you are depending on solar or wind to provide you with the same you are an idiot! So why is this so important to liberals? Because they and their friends get rich rapidly when we are forced into using their “green energy”! Give me natural gas, coal and oil any day! I have lived in a house that used wood burning stoves and solar heat and even though it was located in a temperate climate, I wouldn’t do it again! Solar is fine for hot water heaters and that’s about it as far as I’m concerned!

  31. Jack Cane says:

    The mere fact that Obama and Al Gore are big proponents of the anthropogenic
    global warming theory is near certain proof the theory is a total crock.

  39. Blandly Urbane says:

    I think the speech should have to be made outside like his inaugural

  40. JohnWolf says:

    Even the Obama supporters are not that stupid

  41. Here are some facts about the global climate:

    1.) At one time, the Arctic regions were tropical. Now they are not. It got colder.

    2.) At one time, the entire northern regions of the globe were covered in a mass sheet of ice known as glaciers. In some areas they were over two miles thick. Now they are not. It got warmer.

    In summary: over the course of time, the earth has heated up, and things have gotten warmer. Oh–and, over the course of time, the earth has frozen, and things have gotten colder.

    Have you ever noticed that there is a big yellow thingy in the sky? It is called the sun, or “Old Sol.” Old Sol goes through similar cycles: heating and cooling.

    Do you think that the sun’s activity and the earth’s temperature changes are related?

    Hmmmmm…..it’s something to think about.

    Has mankind impacted the earth?

    Certainly we have. Have we created the great bogeyman, ‘GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE?’

    In a word, “no.”

    Our scientific records are a tiny snapshot of our earth’s story. Catastrophic weather and climate changes have been occurring since the very first day of earth’s long and glorious path.

    We can be certain that, with our without our assistance, the earth’s climate will continuously change. Carbon tax or no carbon tax.

    There are many well-meaning people that wish to “save the planet.”

    We all should save the planet, but we also should not be duped by the Al Gore’s of the world who make VAST FORTUNES off of the cause-du-jour.

    There is a great autobiography that deals with this subject matter. Not global warming/cooling/climate change, but with the real subject matter at hand: ultimate governmental control, a la Mao’s Red Book.

    Make no mistake, the ruse of ‘man-made global warming’ is a plan to control every aspect of your life from a centralized and very powerful government. They know how you should live, and they will tell you how to do so!

    As someone said in an earlier post: “Green is the new Red.”

  43. jerry2286 says:

    I thought Dear Leader promised to take care of all this stuff in his grand speech after descending from Mount Olympus?

  44. Sir Charles Fredrickson says:

    The 17-year pause in global warming is likely to last into the 2030s and the Arctic sea ice has already started to recover, according to new research.
    A paper in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics – by Professor Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr Marcia Wyatt – amounts to a stunning challenge to climate science orthodoxy.
    Not only does it explain the unexpected pause, it suggests that the scientific majority – whose views are represented by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – have underestimated the role of natural cycles and exaggerated that of greenhouse gases.
    The pause means there has been no statistically significant increase in world average surface temperatures since the beginning of 1997, despite the models’ projection of a steeply rising trend.
    According to Dr Hawkins, the divergence is now so great that the world’s climate is cooler than what the models collectively predicted with ‘five to 95 per cent certainty’

  45. Dunning_Kruger_Effect says:

    Obama is the perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger effect:

    “…when incompetent people not only perform a task poorly or incompetently, but lack the competence to realize their own incompetence at a task and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else.”

    Put more crudely, they’re too stupid to realize they’re stupid.

Yeah, it’s been below freezing for the past few weeks now and I have seen more snow this year than the past 3! How about saying this, “Ladies and gentlemen, I have been lying to you since the day I was elected. I am a useless community organizer with no political skills whatsoever. I became president so that I could cheat each and every American citizen out of hard earned money so that my family and i could go on vacation 23 times a year. I really have no business being president. I can barely balance my checkbook and I use Quicken. Basically i am a racist fraud who could care less about you people who put me in office. SO thank you for believing my lies and trusting a con artist like myself. Goodnight” APPLAUSE

        But how likely is that, eh?

        VERY. Obama will do his best to stay there forever.

        “I would put [my administration] up against any prior administration since FDR,” Obama said. “We didn’t ask for the challenges that we face, but we don’t shrink from them either.” He continued, “And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. It will require common effort, shared responsibility, and the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one.”

    Gore has made over 200 million fear mongering with his Chicken Little predictions and the progressives like Obliar see the carbon off set scheme as a way to re-distribute world wealth….

    If the globe is warming, its been warming ever since the last ICE AGE without any help from man.

    I urge people who think this weather pattern is unusual to do two things:
    1) look up “Polar Vortex” on the ‘net, it’s not a new thing, it’s always been there
    2) look at a map or look on Google Earth. see how air from Hawaii has a straight shot all up and down the North East Pacific from the Bering Strait to California. It’s not unusual for warm air to move up past Alaska, through the Yukon, well into the Northwest Territories.
    Neither phenomenon has anything to do with “climate change”. Man’s CO2 has nothing to do with climate change, either.

  58. freedomfan says:

    This is all anyone needs to know about Global Warming:

    Warmists want to confiscate your money but they won’t tell you how much.

    They say it will keep the planet from melting, but they won’t tell you how much it will actually lower global temperature.

    They say it is critical for the environment, but they won’t tell you who will get to spend your money.

      It’s a scheme…Deposition: EPA plotted to alter ‘the DNA of of the capitalist system’

      The Environmental Protection Agency is out to change the very foundations of capitalism, according to sworn testimony from a former agency official.

      The EPA had been working on a project to make capitalism more conducive to environmentalism.

      Former EPA official John Beale told House investigators in his sworn deposition that while at the agency he worked on a project meant to find ways the government could “kind of modify the DNA of the capitalist system.”

    • Shazaam says:

      It’s not just the money. It’s the attitude. They believe they are helping to save the planet and thus anything goes. Tampering with the data to reinforce their beliefs? Well and good according to their “standards”. Exposing their theories to the real facts and honest analysis? Not gonna happen if they can avoid it. Thus the plethora of fact-free arguments and name calling supporting CAGW.

      Thus those who question their “settled science” (and thus their beliefs) and the need for more grant money are labeled “Deniers”.

      Works the same with the gun control advocates (who humorously enough always seem to have armed security personnel). Though they don’t get the joke. Here’s the latest bit of gun control research they will be denouncing at full volume soon: http://stupend.us/2014/01/23/study-finds-firearms-may-be-inanimate-objects/

    ► PEER REVIEW: The act of banding together a group of like-minded academics with a funding conflict of interest, for the purpose of squeezing out any research voices that threaten the multi-million dollar government grant gravy train.

    ► SETTLED SCIENCE: Betrayal of the scientific method for politics, money or both.

    ► DENIER: Anyone who suspects the truth.

    ► NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Leftist Nutcase Prize, unrelated to “Peace” in any meaningful way.

    ► DATA, EVIDENCE: Unnecessary details. If anyone asks for this, see “DENIER,” above.

    ► CLIMATE SCIENTIST: A person skilled in spouting obscure, scientific-sounding jargon that has the effect of deflecting requests for “DATA” by “DENIERS.” Also skilled at affecting an aura of “Smartest Person in the Room” to buffalo gullible legislators and journalists.

    ► JUNK SCIENCE: The use of invalid scientific evidence resulting in findings of causation which simply cannot be justified or understood from the standpoint of the current state of credible scientific or medical knowledge.

  66. fibsernum says:

    The fact that we have extreme cold is evidence of global warming, not a refutation of it. Only a simpleton does not understand that the atmospheric pollution created by excess carbon emissions traps heat and causes melting of the polar ice with resultant redirection of the jet stream, which can send the northern U.S. into an ice age, while causing extreme heat and drought in the south. Unfortunately simpletons, such as those writers on this site, are out there in far too many numbers. They sit around arguing politics, rather than looking for solutions. Do you nuts actually think that if a Conservative is elected president, environmental problems will cease to exist?

    • justin says:

      The southern ice cap is at a 35 years high in thickness. It not only is not melting, it is increasing. If people like you believe that if it’s breaking records in cold winters, it is global warming. If hurricanes become less frequent, it is global warming. It the temp of the planet does not follow the predictions, it is global weirding. Is there anything, anything that would make you question your assumptions ? This is the definition of a religious belief.

    • George O. says:

    • UnCommonSense says:

      Hey fibsernum, So the heat because of carbon emissions is trapped and causes the polar ice to melt, redirecting the jet stream to the Northern U.S. Then where does the air which is about -25 degrees F. in N. Dakota come from? They call it a “Polar Vortex” but that can’t possibly contain -25 degree air, as the air at the pole has warmed enough to melt the ice! Now do you see why you guys make no sense??

      – The earth has been heating and cooling in cycles for millions of years… a mere 10,000 years ago the polar ice cap reached as far south as New York City.

      – We have more to worry about cow farts polluting our atmosphere with methane.

      – And my favorite FACT… all you left-wingnut liberal ‘tards spend your time raising alarms, yet you all still drive cars, use electricity, heat your homes – rampantly burning the very fossil fuels which you claim are killing the planet. Such hypocrites… FOOLS!

      Your statement of melting of polar ice, please explain why there is MORE Ice at the south pole then last year?
      I want your FACT DATA from a factual source (Third Party) to be presented on this board to my reply.

      If I pollute and you tax me, and another does not pollute and he buys my “credits” how does that stop global warming

      During the time of the big lizards and small mammals , the amount of CO2 in the air was 2200 ppm NOT 400 ppm like today. How come the earth did not die nor the animals perish then and they had LARGER Forests during that time.

      Explain how one MAJOR eruptions of a large volcanoes produces MORE CO2 in one eruption then humans can produce in five years. How can your plan stop that?

      The three major earthquakes, Indonesia, Chile, and New Zealand brought the earth from 25.5 degrees to 23 degrees thus allowing the earth to rotate faster and absorb more heat. How do you purpose to over come the faster rotation and the realignment of previous degree? Would you suggest a large chain with a hook on it and everyone pulls in the opposite direction to reset the earth?

      How come MARs, Pluto are ALSO experiencing global warming. Is it because their beings have disregarded algores dire warnings and continue to drive their suvs?

I personally think it beyond arrogant to think we have the power to change the weather.

    Sorry about that first attempted comment.
    Here’s what’s happened. TV weather reporters have switched from being meteorologists to foxy looking chicks with spectacular physiques. Women see these weather reports more than men do and they’ve taken from it something like this: Gosh, that woman delivers the weather report and I’m a woman, therefore I must know a lot about weather, too. So, women talk about weather quite a bit these days and express their opinions about global warming. “I think”, “I believe”, “I feel” are usual phrases they use. They’re never talking science and few have ever been educated in meteorology or even algebra 1. The female psyche desires security and safety above all else, and notions promoted by Al Gore about global warming really get them upset, and they want something to be done to make them safe. This is a fear motivation and with it they are assisted by the vocabulary acquired from watching the weather “babes” on TV, which helps them prattle on about weather. Make no mistake, because of their huge numbers they are a mighty political force and will surely vote carbon credit taxation or anything related, so that they can feel safe and secure.

    Liberals like to avoid dealing with real problems by obsessing on contrived topics like “global warming” or a “war on women”. Here’s an example: A couple of years ago I attended a reception held at the Silicon Valley Marriott. The topic of global warming came up and as you can imagine being on the “left coast” there were some pretty strong opinions about it. One lady, whom I was told was a former candidate for a state-wide office was particularly outspoken about the stupidity of “tea-baggers” and their “denial” of science “facts”. After listening to her drivel for a while I posed this question to her…”OK, so you claim that global warming is going to kill us off unless we listen to “science” – but even you’d have to admit the chance of us dying in the next 5 minutes from global warming is zero – correct?” She replied “well, probably yes, but what’s that got to do with anything?” I responded “There’s a peer-reviewed field of study where the scientific consensus is nearly unanimous that the entire Bay area is due for a devastating earthquake – in fact, if you look out the window (we were in a suite on the 5th floor) you can ACTUALLY SEE the San Andreas fault – a proven killer. Yet you and ~5M people deny this scientific fact every day putting your lives and the lives of your children at great risk – not to mentioned causing a financial calamity! And yes, there is a small, but non-zero possibility that a lethal quake could destroy this entire hotel in the next 5 minutes – Now who are the backwards, stupid anti-science deniers?” She mumbled something about statistics being misleading and changed the topic of conversation…..

    • Al G. Funguy says:

      “I wonder if the big shiny thing, which appears every morning, has anything to do with the temperatures on earth.”

      It’s generally ignored as the TSI (total solar irradiance) varies very little, 0.4%. However, the temperature changes claimed in global warming are likewise very small relative to 273 Kelvin. So I don’t see how it can be so easily ignored. Probably it’s being ignored because the sun’s behavior is too hard to predict.

      Also, my understanding is that the irradiance at specific frequencies (e.g. ultraviolet) changes much more wildly.

      Changes in the solar wind can also affect weather directly: “A 2009 peer reviewed article[2] found that low clouds contain less liquid water following Forbush decreases, and for the most influential events the liquid water in the oceanic atmosphere can diminish by as much as 7%” – from Wikipedia.

  93. This is just perfect, the Liar-In- Chief out to spread more lies over the already debunked global warming crud.

      You just have to love all the stupid comments below about how the weather here in this country is so cold, that global warming can’t be real…

      Newsflash …. How can people be so ignorant! Global Warming has nothing to do with how cold it is this winter or how much snow we get. It is related to the melting of the polar ice caps on the poles, as well as the shifting weather patterns. How can people make such ridiculous arguments and be so uninformed?? I am embarrassed to be an American when idiots(read below) relate scientific facts to politics. As if the rest of the world could give a sh… about Al Gore ….. really!

      How long does it take for plastic to breakdown? What about nuclear waste? How many species are we directly responsible for eliminating? How long does it take for the countless varieties of chemicals we’ve thrown out there to breakdown and become benign? Explain to me how both poles have all sorts of man-made chemicals there?

      It’s a completely ignorant, head in the sand statement to say that we humans have not effected the environment nor have a lasting impact. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ we have, it is a matter of what the full ramifications of that impact are.

      You’re right, nothing is permanent. In cosmic terms, why worry about it, right? The Sun will burn out eventually. So, hell, let’s just throw caution to the wind.

      I was just taking issue with your ‘puny’ humans having no impact on the planet. It’s so painfully obvious that we do have an impact, it’s shocking that you’d convince yourself otherwise. Hell, you can’t eat too much fish because of the Mercury content. At what point will Mother Nature ‘reverse’ that for us if we bury our heads in the sand as you seem to be telling us is the best course of action?
      I can only hope that you don’t work too hard on denying the obvious or that at least you’ll be in the small minority. I’d prefer to not have to worry about things like, “Gee, my kids already had fish this week, is it safe to let them eat it again?”

      Like I said, it’s not a matter of ‘if’, it’s a matter of what that impact means now and for the future.

      But, then again, if I keep my head in the sand with you, maybe that 800 pound gorilla in the room will go away too.

      We all know you deny global warming cause you think it’s a Dem thing… And I don’t care what Al Gore says or does. He is not a scientist. He didn’t make up the global warming issue. When I want to actually learn something scientific, the only thing to do is go to the scientists themselves. The AGW hypothesis was first proposed in 1896, but it took the advent of supercomputers and a lot of increased understanding of how the atmosphere works for scientists to get to this level of confidence that AGW is likely. I hardly think a few flippant comments by internet amateurs are going to counter that very strongly.

        You are the ignorant one. Supercomputers —- garbage in garbage out. There are a lot of assumptions made when putting the data needed to attempt a conclusion in this area. The problem is that grants and other money only support one point of view in this argument so it promote the unscientific method of starting with a conclusion and working backwards to make it work. If they don’t they lose their funding and or careers. If you want to come to a reasonable conclusion you allow dissenting views.

        It is not proven science that the earth is warming or cooling. For instance what is the mean temperature of the earth? No one knows so how can they tell which way from mean we are going in. CO2 another unproven theory.

        Yet many are ready to spend untold $ trillions of dollars to solve a problem they don’t know for sure exist. At the same time they would sentence undeveloped countries to forever poverty. I think that something that has these kinds of consequences would be open the all scientist without political interference.

The devices that measure these things say that the polar icecaps are NOT melting…..so you can come in off the ledge and be proud to be an American again. Now get ready for the next shock…in the year that the “scientists” say was one of the “warmest on record” there were more LOW temperature records broken than high temperature records (http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/12/31/record-cold-temperatures/4264237/), we had record lows for hurricanes/typhoons, record lows for wildfires in the US, record lows for tornados, snowfall in Australia (in the Summer), snowfall for the first time in 100 years in parts of the Middle East….basically the exact OPPOSITE of what the Global Warming Alarmists (aka “Gore-ites”) predicted. Even the IPCC was forced to admit in a Sept 2013 report that there hasn’t been any warming for at least the last 17 years (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24173504)…both NASA and NOAA confirm that what they call a “pause” in the warming is continuing (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/17470-nasa-data-global-warming-still-on-pause-sea-ice-hit-record)….AND now they are predicting that this “pause” in warming could last into the 2050’s ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2485772/Global-warming-pause-20-years-Arctic-sea-ice-started-recover.html).

        • billy smith says:

          TSZodiac — Great post but I doubt it will change the minds of the idiots that believe in the hocus pocus of man made global warming. The fact that someone can use the argument that ‘just because it’s cold right now doesn’t mean it’s not warming’ and then simultaneously say that 1 year, 10 years or even 100 years of melting polar ice caps (which aren’t actually melting right now but increasing) is a way to show that MAN has changed the environment is one of the most pathetic arguments that can be made and is contradictory to it’s own assertion towards what is a ‘useful’ data set.

          Even if we had 100 straight years of melting ice caps that would be just a BLIP in time to be measuring these cycles which take tens of thousands of years. A 100 years of data is as useful as one days temperature when looked at in comparison to the long freeze/thaw cycles that accompany any gradual shift from an ice age to an interglacial medium, at which point temps would slowly, cyclically warble until reaching a new ice age.

          Any rational,reasoning human being could see and understand this, but then, no one ever accused global warming alarmists of being rational or reasoning, and they are barely human as well.

      • Heftyjo says:

        Actually there are a number of climate scientists that disagree on the extent to which humans are influencing the climate. It’s readily accepted that the global climate temps have been rising since the 1800’s; however the level warming is not significant. Certainly not significant enough to warrant what some UN reports advocate spending the equivalent of a Apollo Moon programs amount of money every year for the next 50 years to mitigate a .6-1 degree Celsius rise in global temperatures. But these dissenting opinions are often conveniently left out of the finalized reports when they pass through the bureaucratically politicized final report. Imagine that, the politicians find another way of generating revenue through taxation and cronyism and they do everything possible to paint an unanimous consensus that something, anything, must be done! Say it ain’t so….

        It’s also not in question that humans can and do affect the environment around them. But to the degree of which human caused green house gases influence the global mean temperature is in question. The evidence suggests that the climate isn’t as sensitive to the human green house gas contribution to the atmosphere that early adopters to the green house theory suggest. The facts show that there has been no significant warming in the past 16 years. This has lead the global warmists to proclaim that the heat is hiding down in the deep oceans. And one day it’ll rise up and BAM! We’re all toast. This is boogey man logic at best. There isn’t enough data recording on deep water temperatures to even being to describe in any detail that the heat is hiding down there. Not to mention that the laws of thermodynamics prohibit such an explosive warming of the atmosphere that the latest round of fear-mongering from the warmists propose.

        The Earth’s climate has dealt with asteroid impacts, supervolcanoes, and continental drift; and yet seems to variate in her own time, and pulse up and down irregardless. This would suggest that the Earth’s climate would not be susceptible to a positive feedback loop that would develop into a runaway global warming scenario. In fact, the Earth’s climate over the billions of years that it has been around has shown that it is more of a neutral feedback system. It takes 100’s of millions of years for things to change on the large scale as is evident that Earth atmosphere was originally a methane rich environment and gradually developed into a nitrogen/oxygen rich environment. We are truly blessed with the right mix of water versus land and more importantly a large Moon that not only torques our axis enough to keep it stable but also flexes the Earth core enough to keep it hot and producing a magnetic shield against solar radiation. Thus the reason that we are possible to even exist is because we’ve the good fortune of a dynamic planetary environment that on the large scale remains stable enough to produce life; irregardless of external pressures and forcing by outside events. I reject the view that we humans are a cancer on this Earth. That we are somehow reducing its opulence in its place in the Universe. No, we are here to observe the Universe in all it’s glory. We exist so that the Universe can know itself. We consume the latent entropic energy in the Universe through our endeavors to know, learn, and understand why we are even here. Therefore, we should grow, we should expand, we should enrich ourselves; not only in money but in mind. The warmist want to take that all away. They want to draw down the population, they want to move us back to the pre-industrial society when we didn’t know these things, when we didn’t understand. And yet they say this must be done to be good to the Earth, to the Universe that put us here so that it could know itself. To be “environmentally conscience” is to deny everything that that term even implies.

      • NeoPatriot says:

        The point is not if there is global warming which NOAA has estimated to be between 1 and 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past 100 years.
        The real points are;
        Is this small increase in average global temperatures is being caused by increased levels of Carbon Dioxide? The answer from science is inconclusive at best.
        Do coal fired power plants produces significantly higher levels of CO2 emissions compared to Natural Gas fired plants? 20 to 40% more according to most studies but Obama has taken it upon himself to shut down coal plants across our country bringing our power grid to dangerously low levels.
        Will an international Carbon tax paid to the global bankers led by such firms as Rothschild Ltd and Blood & Gore Co. (real name) solve the problem? No it is another banker rip off.

        We do have real environmental problems in the world; Fukushima, leaking and outdated nuclear power plants, GMO, oil spills, strip mining, acid rain, pharmaceuticals in our water supplies etc. but there is no real evidence that CO2 levels of 0.4% of our atmosphere is one of them.

        • ddn123 says:

          You know why we have mountain topping and strip mining? There is a thing called the Byrd Rule, named after Sen. Byrd of WV. The Byrd rule requires that over half of coal burned east of the Mississippi be mined east of the Mississippi. Why? Because, coal mined in Wyoming (quite easy and safe to do with little impact on the environment) is cheaper than mining cola 1000 of feet under the ground in the Appalachia. This are the rules that environmentalists will not attack because they are in bed with politicians that have to take their pound of flesh to do any work. If you got rid of the Byrd rule, the Appalachia would enjoy less impact from mining operations that require moving a lot of dirt to get the coal.

        Truth is humans have had an impact on their environment for some 300,000 years.

        The last great Ice Age melted because of global warming when man’s was hardly present on the planet. So how do you know the same natural cycling of climate isn’t happening now regardless of man’s environmental impact or presence on the planet? But if the present global warming (“climate change” just to be safe) IS related to man, then aren’t you actually saying man’s population growth? And if that’s the case, what do you think we should do to control it?

      • TJP says:

        The polar ice caps are at the highest level they’ve been for years. The world has not warmed for close to two decades. Even if Global Warming were continuing unabated, however, we are still at least a few degrees below optimum for life on Earth (more plants and animals die from cold each year than heat), and at current scientifically-supported trends, we aren’t likely to see that for centuries. Never mind move into danger areas. You do know there were warming periods thousands of years in the past that were comparable to what we’re seeing now?

        But let’s assume for the sake if argument you are correct. It’s irrelevant. The solutions proposed by environmentalists – Cap and Trade, carbon taxes, regulatory restrictions, alternative energy subsidies, etc. are all worthless, since they’re either ineffective or significantly increase our energy and production costs. What happens when our production costs go up? That’s right, production shifts to countries that pollute far MORE – China, for instance, which pollutes 4x as much per unit of production. As long as we pollute less than developing countries, and we do, any attempt at regulation or restriction will tend to both destroy our economy and increase, not decrease, global pollution.

        Assuming you are a true believer, therefore, the only workable solution is to subsidize research alone, and leave it up to the market to implement. Tech that both saves money and produces less greenhouse gases will be implemented voluntarily, and only then will China, India, etc. be forced to implement as well if they want to compete. Subsidizing bad technology, on the other hand, actually delays implementation of the good stuff. How much money has been thrown into corn ethanol or car batteries filled with toxic pollutants, that should have been saved for basic research in biomass or solid-state batteries? How about implementing solar panel power plants, vs research into compressed-air energy storage and solar collection? Subsidies for wind farms in areas with little wind and/or no connection to the energy grid? Etc. The “green” industry is corrupt up to its eyeballs.

      • Chad Burke says:

        All of the ‘science’ you point to is nothing but manipulated or cherry picked data. Do the research yourself. Overall polar ice caps are freezing earlier and over larger areas than ever. There has been no warming over the past 17 years. There is no increase in catastrophic weather events. The next time you read an article about a glacier melting try to remember they’ve been melting for 10,000 years because we’re coming out of a nice age. If you see a study about ice caps melting, ask yourself why the author is focused on a small area rather than overall ice mass. AGW is about money and nothing else, maybe when another twenty years pass without any of their threats coming to fruition you’ll finally get it.

      • glc says:

        how cold it is has nothing to do with but how warm it is dose , interesting by the way the polar ice is NOT melting just ask the people who were trapped in the quickly expanding ice at the south pole at the peak of SUMMER down there. liberals never let the facts get in the way of an argument

      • adambreel says:

        Just keep calling people stupid and maybe everyone will believe you. I guess mocking and ridiculing has replaced scientific method. Another graduate of Jon Stewart University. The fact is the models that predicted global warming have not been verified by empirical data. They predicted substantial temperature increases by now and that has just not occurred. If the models are not predictive then they are not correct, that is how scientific method works. So just keep calling people names I’m sure that will substantially help your cause.

      • Mikey, you seem like a nice enough guy that is passionate about the planet. Your mistake is mixing arguments. You are correct that we are not being good stewards of the home that God has provided us and put us in charge of. We’re using unsafe chemicals in our environment, polluting it, and wasting materials by discarding used products in landfills instead of recycling. However, no truly intelligent person believes in (man made) global warming aka (man made) climate change aka Anthropogenic Global Warming or whatever the next misleading term for “human-caused” climate change is. I don’t “deny global warming cause I think it’s a Dem thing”. I do deny (man-made) global warming cause I think it’s a Dumb thing. I do believe in true climate change that has taken place on our living planet over time. Oceans have turned to plains, and plains to oceans. Forests have turned to deserts, and deserts have turned to forests. I can’t make an argument, with a straight face, that those planet hating Egyptians would still have grass and trees around the pyramids if they would’ve just quit driving those big SUVs after building them. Oh, on that “melting of the polar ice caps on the poles” thing,,, two words… Akademik Shokalskiy. It and its 52 passengers just got back home after being trapped in pack ice for over two months.
        Hey Chris Turney, let me get this straight… you got stuck in Antarctic pack ice that froze around you on your way to study the effect of “global warming” on melting Antarctic pack ice? PRICELESS.
        Oh… that’s right… this just proves that anthropogenic climate warming global change exists because it’s an offset caused by the affects of abnormal warming at {insert random location here}.
        No dude … It’s called WEATHER!

      • First, before posting Obamabot rubbish about a nonexistent global warming, have someone with basic English check your spelling and grammar. As an example, one does not “effect” the environment, the AGW hypothesis is that humans AFFECT it. So-called experts have been warning alternately of global warming and a New Ice Age for over 140 years, during which time the global temperature (all scientists, pro-AGW and anti-AGW agree on this) has risen … wait for it, 0.8 degrees. And, again generally agreed to, there her been ZERO warming for 17 years and counting.
        .
        The idea that man-made CO2 put into the atmosphere (Algore’s favorite hypothesis) was knocked on the head in the early 1970s. The fastest buildup of man-made atmospheric CO2 was during the 30 years after 1941, when industrialized nations worldwide went into a frenzy of armaments and – in the post WWII boom – rebuilding and producing consumer goods like cars and refrigerators. And the temperature went down steadily for those 30 years.
        .
        Earth’s temperature has gone up and down steadily for as long as this planet has existed in solid form. A thousand years ago (The Medieval Warming Period) it was much warmer than today, warm enough for the Vikings to establish a community of cattle grazing and sheep farming in Greenland, and grow wine grapes in what is now Newfoundland (which they named Vinland, or “wine land.”) Then, a few hundred years later, there was the Maunder Minimum, or Little Ice Age, when it was so cold that the Thames in London froze to a depth of two feet and more, and became a highway for wagons, and shops set up business, parties and ox roasts took place etc.
        .
        The sun (tilt, sunspots) has more influence on global temperatures than anything man has ever done or can do. Going back to the 1970s (and earlier); here are some predictions:
        .
        “The question is again being discussed whether recent and long-continued observations do not point to the advent of a second glacial period, when the countries now basking in the fostering warmth of a tropical sun will ultimately give way to the perennial frost and snow of the polar regions.” – New York Times, Feb. 24, 1895
        .
        Professor Gregory of Yale University stated that “another world ice-epoch is due.” He was the American representative to the Pan-Pacific Science Congress and warned that North America would disappear as far south as the Great Lakes, and huge parts of Asia and Europe would be “wiped out.” – Chicago Tribune, Aug. 9, 1923
        .
        “The discoveries of changes in the sun’s heat and southward advance of glaciers in recent years have given rise to the conjectures of the possible advent of a new ice age – Time Magazine, Sept. 10, 1923
        .
        “America is believed by Weather Bureau scientists to be on the verge of a change of climate, with a return to increasing rains and deeper snows and the colder winters of grandfather’s day.” – Associated Press, Dec. 15, 1934 .

        “After a week of discussions on the causes of climate change, an assembly of specialists from several continents seems to have reached unanimous agreement on only one point: it is getting colder.” – New York Times, Jan. 30, 1961
        .
        “Like an outrigger canoe riding before a huge comber, the earth with its inhabitants is caught on the downslope of an immense climatic wave that is plunging us toward another Ice Age.” – Los Angeles Times, Dec. 23, 1962
        .
        “By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half . . . .” – Life magazine, January 1970
        .
        Because of increased dust, cloud cover and water vapor, “the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” – Newsweek magazine, Jan. 26, 1970
        .
        “The United States and the Soviet Union are mounting large-scale investigations to determine why the Arctic climate is becoming more frigid, why parts of the Arctic sea ice have recently become ominously thicker and whether the extent of that ice cover contributes to the onset of ice ages.” – New York Times, July 18, 1970
        .
        “In the next 50 years, fine dust that humans discharge into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuel will screen out so much of the sun’s rays that the Earth’s average temperature could fall by six degrees. Sustained emissions over five to 10 years could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.” – Washington Post, July 9, 1971
        .
        “It’s already getting colder. Some midsummer day, perhaps not too far in the future, a hard, killing frost will sweep down on the wheat fields of Saskatchewan, the Dakotas and the Russian steppes. . . .” – Los Angles Times, Oct. 24, 1971
        .
        “An international team of specialists has concluded from eight indexes of climate that there is no end in sight to the cooling trend of the last 30 years, at least in the Northern Hemisphere.” – New York Times, Jan. 5, 1978
        .
        Some of these “experts” even suggested INCREASING power station and other particulate emission to increase the greenhouse effect, even spreading soot at the poles to trap more sunlight heat. The whole global warming industry is a hoax, a typical socialist wealth redistribution scheme to send billions (MORE BILLIONS, Obozo has already sent $100B) of out taxes to Third-World crap heaps, ostensibly to help them reduce their CO2 emissions (from wood and camel dung fires?), when in reality it will go straight into their dictators’ Swiss bank accounts.
        .
        Enjoy the Algore/Obozo KoolAid.

        When it’s warm, it’s global warming. When it’s cold, it’s global warming. When the weather is stable, it’s global warming. When the weather changes, it’s global. You’ve it all. Just remember, the Earth has been warming up for more than 10,000 years since the last Ice age, and the climate keeps changing for thousands of years.

      • SojournerTruth says:

        The weather patterns today are no different than what they have been for the last one hundred years. There have always been years of drought and years of flooding, years of hurricanes and tornadoes and years of relative calm. Scientist trying to push a political agenda is nothing knew. The global warming hoax of the ’60’s was the Population Bomb. By the year 2000, we were all going to be starving to death and homeless because of over-population. The whole hoax was ginned up in order to support abortion and to scare people into having fewer children and using contraceptives. Global warming was created in order to scare people into buying more expensive energy and forcing people to accept tax hikes that will “reduce our carbon footprint,” all B.S. to support the growth of government and the loss of individual liberty. You need to a reality check. You’re being duped by crafty people who are trying fleece you of your hard earned cash. Wake up before it’s too late.

      • Mike Genest says:

        No one serious suggests that one cold day or even an entire Winter disproves the AGW hypothesis. In fact, I don’t think anyone of substance asserts that the 17-year pause in warming disproves it. But, the point is : it’s an hypothesis and that means it needs to be tested against data. It has grossly failed the tests so far. The various models are way off. Now, might there be some refinement or new hypothesis to fix the models so that they produce better results in future? There might, but that is speculation, not even rising to the level of hypothesis. So, what you have is that AGW has failed to present a hypothesis that passes the test of the last 17 years. Against that what you have is AGW advocates wanting to make massive changes in our global economy, the cooling impact of which they have no validated model to predict. We can hypothesize pretty well what those changes would mean for our economy (people, especially the poor will suffer dramatically). The only reasonable explanation for this seems to be that these people want to empower themselves and their one-world agenda. Of course, if that’s not true please show proof.

        BTW, the advent of supercomputers produced those failed models.

        more CO2 is good for the atmosphere and good for plants. thats why its added to greenhouses (i realize this may be confusing to you). Its actually a cooling gas. have you ever done any experiments on your own using CO2? didnt think so.

        stop buying the AlGore brand fake science.
        He’s a conman, and you’ve been conned. get over it.
        ———————————-
        “As reported by Principia Scientific International (PSI), Martin Mlynczak and his colleagues over at NASA tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and following a recent solar storm that took place between March 8-10. What they found was that the vast majority of energy released from the sun during this immense coronal mass ejection (CME) was reflected back up into space rather than deposited into earth’s lower atmosphere.

        The result was an overall cooling effect that completely contradicts claims made by NASA’s own climatology division that greenhouse gases are a cause of global warming. As illustrated by data collected using Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER), both carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), which are abundant in the earth’s upper atmosphere, greenhouse gases reflect heating energy rather than absorb it.

        “Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats,” says James Russell from Hampton University, who was one of the lead investigators for the groundbreaking SABER study. “When the upper atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) heats up, these molecules try as hard as they can to shed that heat back into space.”

        I am embarrassed YOU are an American.

      • ddn123 says:

        As an aerospace engineer, I do understand facts. Half your comment has nothing to do with the average global temperature (which has not risen over the last 15 years) and more to do with quality of life. You list the following

        How long does it take for plastic to breakdown?
        What about nuclear waste?
        How many species are we directly responsible for eliminating?
        How long does it take for the countless varieties of chemicals we’ve thrown out there to breakdown and become benign?
        Explain to me how both poles have all sorts of man-made chemicals there?

        None of these effect global climate. They do effect your quality of life and in some cases–nations with extreme proverty or ignorance–can impact your life expectancy. So plastic does not break down and there is a bunch of trash floating around the oceans. That is just an example of people not knowing how to throw out trash. Nuclear Waste? Again, Governments are lazy and do not know how to manage their own laziness. But nuclear waste is for the most part confined to small (relatively) small areas. How many people die from radiation poising a year? Species elimination has more to do with suburbanization, alien species invasions, etc… Beside about half the endangered species in the US are in the Hawaiian islands because the islands were the most susceptible to alien species displacement and competition.

        I could go on and on and refute most of your argument. Most of your concerns are most prevalently felt in countries with more government control of resources (the industrial waste in the former USSR, the poverty resulting from the caste/socialist system of India and the corruption in the third world are good examples) and not a result of burning fossil fuels.

        The principle problem is the intervention of government into the free market system that distorts the more efficient allocation of resources. For instance, the idiotic endless study of the keystone KL pipeline and NY State banning hydro fracking lead the US to rely on more costly and inefficient uses of energy (solar, wind, coal). Wind and solar are driving up the cost of electricity which only hurts the average consumer for no clear improvement in environmental measures (don’t go talking about CO2 because it is clear the climate models don’t understand the global temperature/climate impact of rising CO2–none of the models have/had predicted the flat temperature measurements over the last 15 years). Wind/solar takes up a bunch of space, kills birds and raises electricity costs. The subsidies prevent the market from using the price function to reward winners and losers. Explain how one windmill farm can kill tens of Golden Eagles every year and be given a pass while the EPA jumps down the throat of one oil producer that had one duck end up dead in a facility?

        Free markets, properly administer allow individuals to most efficiently pursue their life. This does not mean we do not need a clean water/clean air act. But it does not mean we need a government that uses hyperbole to pursue political goals that have nothing to do with science and more to do about social justice.

        Should I go on about the destructive results of ethanol because the climate change/global warmists got all bent out of shape over MTBE?

      • Par4Course says:

        Climate change (a cycle of warming and cooling) has been a constant on earth forever. There is no proof of the AGW hypothesis. To the extent the globe has warmed in the last 100 years (perhaps 1°), it’s impossible to say why. This is especially true when there has been no warming in the past 15 years despite the increase in atmospheric CO2.

        The AGW hypothesis is just another excuse to expand the size and scope of government.

      • Phil Dennis says:

        Cold(no pun) fact. If man is causing the destruction of Earth with global warming the Earth will cleanse itself. Man will die off thereby eliminating the problem. Not all but many and the Earth will go on and man will rebound and the cycle goes on until the sun implodes a few billion years from now. That is unless other ways bring about a balance like thermonuclear war, global pandemic, asteroid strike. So let’s all go hide wringing our hands and ignore the known verifiable and tangible threats we face while Al goes on making his billions by preaching his hypocrisy from his private jet or from the comfort of his 9 million dollar mansion.

        Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a “true-believer;” an individual who has completely consumed the CAGW kool-aid.

        He knows almost nothing of the actual science, but he knows all of the propaganda lines and buzz words. He gets so exercised over any skepticism that he virtually hyperventilates as he spews all of his collect wisdom and knowledge onto the page . . . none of it containing any real FACTUAL information, but filled with assumptions and assertions streaming from his absolute faith in what these pseudo-scientists have told him as they go to the bank to cash their latest grant checks.

        Hey, Mike, for all your ranting and raving, you have missed one very small factor . . . there is no physical, scientific proof of a causal relation between the increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 and increased global temperatures–lots of assumptions have been made, lots of assertions based on theories, but no actual proof, no experimental data, nothing that any real scientist would consider capable of elevating AGW from being nothing more than a theory.

        Correlation is not causation. You can’t, as climate scientists have tried to do, simply assume that because two things appear to correlate, there is a direct relationship between them.

        The models have never fit the data. Each level of new data they get forces them to “tweak” their models to explain why the data deviate from predictions made by their precious models. The first thing anyone should know about computer models is that THEY ONLY REFLECT THE BIASES OF THE PROGRAMMERS WHO WROTE THEM. If the scientists who wrote the program expect to see predictions of AGW, then that’s what they will find, unless they are exceptionally careful in their efforts to avoid any assumptions. Of course, we all know from their emails at the CRU that they weren’t interested in facts, only in preserving their academic domains and careers.

        Real scientist don’t try to prove their theories right, they try to DISPROVE THEM. Real scientist don’t look to “consensus,” SCIENCE ISN’T A DEMOCRACY IN WHICH YOU VOTE TO DECIDE WHICH SOLUTION IS THE CORRECT ONE.

        If you can’t debate it, it’s not science, it’s religion. If you won’t allow dissent, it’s not science, it’s religion. If you attempt to suppress those who disagree with you, it’s not science, it’s religion. AGW is a religion with very little actual science to support it’s claims.

        Educate yourself, fool:

        Remember you not the Time Magazine cover from 1974 depicting the Earth in an ice cube because there was no doubt an ice age was coming? I sure do. You may also want to investigate Time’s positions in 1974 and in 2014 for their thoughts on the Polar Vortex. Seems over 40 years they flipped their opinion of the exact same weather event. In other words, blowing with the breezes of the “time”. Have you not read, or perhaps have you intentionally ignored, the data coming out of the champion of control, the UN, about the “pause” or heard about the faking of data in the UK? Regardless, it matters not because the entirety of the argument is about control. Control over how people live (“you can’t set your thermostat at 72 degrees” while the reported Oval Office winter temp is “hot enough to grow orchids”) not only through onerous regulation driving up the cost of business and subsequently the cost to the consumer but the taking of your/my/our money to “offset” these alleged crimes against humanity. Funny story, about 20,000 years ago wide swaths of North America were under 3.5 to 4 kilometers of ice yet somehow without the help of what you clearly consider to be dirty modern humans it melted. How inconvenient.

      • Dennis says:

        The supermodels running on the supercomputers have over predict temperature increase twice. The first time the modelers added sulfur dioxide making clouds to their models and surprise that lowered the temps to reality. But, the rate of increase did not change and now the temperature is lower than what the model predict like in the lower 4% of prediction. This is in part because scientist know where only 60% of the carbon dioxide is.

        On the other side the sun – cosmic ray – low level cloud theory has high ( 90%) agreement with temperatures in the arctic and agreement which long term temperature patterns. That is why there are studies under way at CERN to investigate the kinetics of the relationship between the three.

        The AGW hypothesis supporters are very unscientific in says the question is answered and all questioning should stop. Just remember one counter example of a scientific law disproves the law. So, all scientific questions are always open to question. In this case the failures of the models are very good reasons to question the hypothesis.

        Newsflash…the leading weather scientist at MIT agrees that the earth has warmed but not enough to give anyone any concern. He has stated that the science is not there to prove that man can control the weather. Your points are more towards pollution. There is no doubt man is polluting the earth and I would think you would find that most conservatives agree we should not pollute the earth out of basic logic, not because it affects the weather. Mercury in fish is caused by mans pollution. Nuclear waste is caused by mans pollution. These should not be tolerated. China is the biggest polluter on the planet and when you discover a way to stop them let everyone know. Also when it comes to carbon dioxide nature produces more than we ever could imagine. Do your research and simply Google the carbon dioxide emissions of ONE volcanic eruption which, the last time I looked was natural. Compare that output to the emissions of cars in the US. When you do you will be one step closer to being an informed liberal. I pray that all tree hugging libs just open their minds and do nonpartisan research and rather trying to prove that humans are warming the earth and look at the real science.

The AGWs also start chicken little’ing about AGW whenever there’s a hurricane, tornado, drought, forest fire, heat wave, etc. somewhere on the planet, but then they lecture everyone else about how “weather is not climate” whenever there’s extreme cold waves, record ice at the poles, record snow, etc.. There hasn’t been any global warming for 12 years and even the IPCC is admitting now that the climate models they based on their hysterics on are completely incapable of predicting anything accurately.

        Do you live in an electricity free cave, survive at ambient temperature, and travel around on the back of some beast we have yet to drive into extinction? If not, please put a sock in it! Maybe it just stays comfortably warm in there from your self proclaimed brilliance reflecting off of the cavern walls?

        Oh, and if we as ignorant Americans cause you that much embarrassment the simple solution would be to just paddle somewhere else..

        The cap in global warming is not ice cap it’s cap and trade. Just looking or the Romans used Christianity to control the people global warming is the new religion to control the people. The sun controls the heat of the earth that’s why all the other planets in our solar system are heating and cooling at the same rate. The question you have to ask yourself is if you found out that global warming was a lie would you be disappointed?

        Oh geez, your post is riddled liberal fantasy disguised as fact.

        The Earth was warmer during the time of humans. The Viking grew barley crops on Greenland….today liberals warn if Greenland’s ice melts at all the world will end. Your MATH DOESN’T ADD UP.

        And Plastic takes eons to break down. SO WHAT.

        So what if some day we need to close down Area 51 and make it one giant landfill of nothing but plastic. HOW EXACTLY is that going to garner the end of the world????

        This is the 16th straight year of cooling and brainwashed Global Warming Alarmists refuse to accept or contemplate THOSE facts.

I am a very conscious citizen who recycles extensively. I treat the planet (and people who deserve it) with great respect. But seriously, this whole Global Warming Alarmism thing is a huge scam designed to keep Tax Dollars funneling into academia where hyper-liberal professors keep the sham of global warming alive. I’m sick and tired of liberal dishonesty. Dishonesty is the foundation of modern-day Democrats and global warming is just one more example of it.

      • And the ice is THICKENING!!! On both caps it’s thickening. You hear about your fellow geniuses who got stuck in the ice at the South Pole because they believed like you that ice was melting? On the other side of the world they have found the ice at the North Pole ice sheet grew 533,000 THOUSAND square miles in one year. The ice is growing, not melting. Your global warming is nothing more than a myth constructed by liberals who don’t care about the environment, but care about controlling you. They can’t force you to live their way, unless they can justify it with some “noble cause” thus global warming.

        OK….lets have a real debate on man made global warming. Lets get a panel of scientists on both sides of the issue to debate the issue. So far global warming advocates have simply said ‘the science is settled’…no debate is necessary. Reality is that there are MANY prestigious scientists who do not support the man made global warming theory but their voices are muffled and ignored all together by people like you who consider those of us who are skeptical at best as a bunch of idiots.

        If one looks at those who are pushing the global warming hoax, it is clear that their agenda is to create an all new tax structure which is nothing more than another form of wealth redistribution. Your comments are vacuous in view of the MANY predictions that have already failed on the part of the left. Sea ice in the North Pole is not receding….it is growing. After hurricane Katrina the leftist global warming scientists stated that we were entering a period of unprecedented hurricane activity. Yet the past seven or eight years have been punctuated by extremely low hurricane occurrences. The list of already debunked claims about global warming is a long one…..and I suspect that trend will continue….but you one world globalists who want to tax everything will keep on with your mindless drivel

        Mike, just because we do not buy into the leftist power grab that the whole “man-made climate change” hoax is truly all about, does not mean that we love fossil fuels and plastic. To the contrary, most of us believe in a rational timeline and fiscally responsible shift to finding REAL answers to new energy sources. We also believe in clean air and a healthy environment. But carbon dioxide is as “clean” as oxygen itself. In fact, it IS oxygen for all plant life.

        If you cannot see the leftist agenda behind AGW, you are severely naive. All you have to do is look at the push to move trillions of First World funds to Third World countries. Like that is somehow really going to solve the problem. And the only ones who will be helped are the corrupt leaders of those nations, who will make sure that half of it goes into their secret Swiss accounts.

        Likewise, all this AGW research, funded by left leaning governments, has simply kept the scientists who created them employed. Its in their own self interest to keep the research coming. Meanwhile, ALL of them failed to predict the “pause” in warming that has happened over the last 15 years…. Follow the money.

Just look at who is making money off the Global Warming hype. The earth has and always will fluctuate between warming and cooling periods, this is nothing new nor earth shattering. Profiteering off of the masses of the ignorant who are not smart enough to see the hype is based on dis-proven, manipulated and false data is far more destructive to planet and its people.

        Looking for science Mike? Here you go:
        1. In appx 3,5 billion years our decendants, if our species survives, will have to vacate the planet. The sun in its death throes will expand and engulf the earth.
        2. The largest determining factor for our climate is the SUN. Turn it off and see what happens after 8 1/3 minutes. Temperatures have varied widely over the mllenia due to sun activity. Ex. 2500 years ago Carthegenian General Hannibal crossed the Mediterranian with his elephants, traversed the Italian Alps to attack Rome from the north. The mountain passages were open, not frozen. Over the years the passages have been alternativly open and frozen with ice ages, little and major.

        Actually, one of the most prominent scientists in the world – at MIT – is an anti-global warming scientist. And since no computer models agree, and since the Global Warming pseudo-scientist lied repeatedly, and made millions, no one really believes anything people such as you have to say.

        The Earth has always undergone climate change, and recently experts are wondering how much, if anything, is related to man’s activities as compared to the Earth doing its thing, as it has done for millions of years.

        The key thing with the left, besides making billions, is to take over the world through world regulation about Global Warming. “Climate Change” won’t get them there, so any way they can lie, distort and falsify will work for them. It is all about one-world government.

    CLIMATE CHANGE GLOSSARY
    PEER REVIEW: The act of banding together a group of like-minded academics with a funding conflict of interest, for the purpose of squeezing out any research voices that threaten the multi-million dollar government grant gravy train.
    SETTLED SCIENCE: Betrayal of the scientific method for politics or money or both.
    DENIER: Anyone who suspects the truth.
    CLIMATE CHANGE: What has been happening for billions of years, but should now be flogged to produce ‘panic for profit.’
    NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Leftist Nutcase Prize, unrelated to “Peace” in any meaningful way.
    DATA, EVIDENCE: Unnecessary details. If anyone asks for this, see “DENIER,” above.
    CLIMATE SCIENTIST: A person skilled in spouting obscure, scientific-sounding jargon that has the effect of deflecting requests for “DATA” by “DENIERS.” Also skilled at affecting an aura of “Smartest Person in the Room” to buffalo gullible legislators and journalists.
    JUNK SCIENCE: The use of invalid scientific evidence resulting in findings of causation which simply cannot be justified or understood from the standpoint of the current state of credible scientific knowledge.

    No matter what scientists or anyone in the West wants or does, China, India and Africa are going to control humanity’s approach to anything related to global cooling or warming. China and India have about 55 percent of the world’s population. China does not give a hoot what Al G or that ignoramus on this board say. China is going to pollute to build manufacturing to feed the 1 billion Chinese in abject poverty. Same for India and Africa.

    Here’s how you can detect a Communist/Leftist of any persuasion: They will tell instruct you to belief the opposite of what you know to be true. This is the first step in gaining control of any population. For instance, we all know that there have been many ice ages–cooling and heating cycles of enormous magnitude, occurring with no influence from humanity. We know that modern methodology tells us there has been no increase in the average global temperatures for 15 years and even a slight drop. We all know that the global warming movement had to be re-branded into “climate change” or what the rest of us call weather when it was proven to be false and supported with falsified data.
    The President of the United States will instruct us to believe that the currently seasonably cold is really a result of what was sold as global warming and at the same time tell us we can’t make judgments based on daily weather events. In other words, don’t believe your lying eyes.

  136. Jack Frost says:

    One thing I am pretty sure of is that it’s virtually impossible to have a rational public discussion of matters such as “man made climate change” (nee “global warming”). All the talk will NOT change the realities. The venomous bias of the “herd of independent thinkers” led by such cheerleaders as Al Gore, Obama, et al, makes it hard to overlook their heavily vested political and financial conflicts of interest – not to mention they know less about the subject than my dead cat. Matters of reality aren’t really governed by “talk” and “votes”. My humble OPINION is that the “progressives” have usurped a seemingly “scientifically based” issue to use as a hammer to squash their “infidels”.

  137. Fact: Coldest temperature ever recorded happened July 31 2013 in Antarctica measuring -135.8 below zero.
    Fact: This year the Antarctic Ice doubled, and is slow to retreat during their summer months right now.
    Fact: Arctic Ice at the north pole increased by 1/3 this past year.
    Fact: the average temperature medium for nov-dec-jan so far for the entire united states is below freezing;
    Fact: while mild conditions exist up the west cost, and unusually mild in coastal Alaska for this season, it is not all unusual occurrence, much like England never freezes because of the gulf stream, right now the warm air from Hawaii is riding up the coast north. Its a natural occurrence.; the rest of the country is completely freezing over, all the way to the gulf of mexico and central florida.
    Fact: at one time the ice and snow extended all the way down to the equator covering 99% of the earth, only way life existed was at hot springs and volcanic areas, thermal spots.
    Fact: global warming exists, but not at all affected by man.
    Fact: the great lakes are more frozen than they have been in decades, Erie completely frozen over.
    Fact: we are on track to have the most snowfall ever recorded in Chicago.
    Fact: everything on earth consumed and expelled, created and destroyed is and including you have come from the earth, not a foreign place, and its there in the earth everything becomes renewed, by rain, snow, wind, solar radiation, ozone, ocean currents, the moon and most importantly the sun. Humanity is such a small part of the vastness of earth, and just a pin prick when it comes to the atmosphere.

    if you believe global warming is caused by man, or influenced by man. You are either promoting or selling something or you have a complex which makes you feel you’re important. In terms of the planet, you’re not important… this planet and universe is easily capable of cleansing and removing you. I suggest you respect your delicate delusions and try not to impress them on others.

He has to continue to back it. He is not the kind of person to back down from what he believes is a political gain unless he can see a political gain from it. This is not science it is politics. It has become a Democrat belief. I wouldn’t be surprised if he began using the “deniers” propaganda statement. Time will eventually prove them completely wrong.

Instead we have the coldest winter I’ve ever seen, throughout the USA and the majority of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is likewise reporting cold temperatures. You publish graphs and charts with colors on them claiming warming as if that should make us believe you.

    Unfortunately for your position, the facts just don’t measure up with your claims. You’re the boys who called Warming. You kept running around screaming “Warming, Warming!” and yet nothing happened, and people just don’t believe you anymore.

  147. highplainzdrfter says:

    Hey Mike H., ever heard of a big yellow disk in the sky that effects the weather? The solar cycle is at a high right now, but the sun is not heating up this go round. Our weather is inversely proportional to the suns activity with a small lag effect because it takes a while to heat up the ocean. CO2 is only 1/3 of 1% of the atmosphere, you’re cracked if you actually believe it is CO2 changing the weather. And finally, you don’t send partisan hacks like AL Gore out to be chicken little, we conservatives believe this is motivated for votes and money.

It gets warm in the summer and cold in the winter, it’s been that way since the beginning of the earth, it’s not a amn-made phenomenon.

    • Al Gore uses a chart spanning 600k years. Over the past 600k Al Gore’s chart proves that climate change in the norm. There is no period on Al Gore’s chart that spans 600k years that climate wasn’t changing. If climate wasn’t changing we should be worried. Please Mr Buzzcut, identify a period on Al Gore’s chart when climate wasn’t changing. Just what data are you relying on to reach the conclusion that climate shouldn’t be changing? Climate change is well recorded in our most ancient books. Climate change drove the Israelites to Egypt and slavery, climate change drove Mohammed and his followers out of the Arabian peninsula, climate change drove the Vikings off Greenland, Climate change helped trigger/influence the French and American revolutions, climate change aided the decline of the middle Egyptian empire, and the list goes on and on and on.

Then, when 2012 rolled around Gore could claim “It’s working!”

    Why isn’t Gore in jail?

Please welcome Professor Barack Obama addressing the Congressional amphitheatre of politicians and political junkies on the political junk science called global warming.

    Well, we won’t really know just how horribly hot the planet has been this past year until the NCDC manipulates the temperature data. The link below has a graph (3rd from the top) that shows how much the glowbull warmerers falsify actual temperature data to create ‘man-made global warming.’ Notice actual temperatures back to 1900 are reduced by as much as 1.75 degrees while today’s actual temperatures are raised by 0.25 degrees. And VOILA! Glowbull Warmering! Also, notice the obvious hockey stick shape of the temperature manipulations over time. This whole hoax is as phony as a 3 dollar bill.

    Well, it’s nice to know that warming alarmists will never use a record warm winter as evidence of AGW, then. Because certainly they know that any legitimate scientific theory would never use opposite and conflicting results as part of it’s predictive model, by definition. Otherwise it disqualifies itself from any rational consideration. Surely they understand this, yes? Bueller…?

  192. Not one comment on here in support of global warming? Is the entire readership of this site that naive? Since its common knowledge that the majority of americans treat science as if it’s an opinion, I expected some to adopt the opinion of John Stewart and the Daily show. Or is Fox still all the fuss these days? My question is: none of you understand climate change because you haven’t done research on it, all you have heard are a few anecdotes about it from media figures, so why are you getting so worked up about it?

    • Andy OZ says:

      Why do you support lies,deceit and fraud? Alarmists are new order lemmings. I’ve researched this since 2001 and know it is a scam as do thousands of qualified scientists.

      • From your verbiage and use of vague meaningless idioms I’d say you’re college aged, and love orwell, kurt vonnegut and bill hicks, but what do you know about climate change? Given your extensive history researching the subject, you must have handy access to some relevant studies and peer-reviewed research that you can share?

        • DirkH says:

          See, DWAI; the Null hypothesis is that the climate, or to be more precise, we’re only talking about “Global average temperature” here, is brown noise, ok?
          So, the proponents of the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming have to make a prediction that invalidates the Null hypothesis; otherwise their theory is not a scientific theory.
          We don’t have to prove ANYTHING. THEY have to come up with predictions. While they try to wiggle their way out of the scientific method’s terminology by claiming they only make PROJECTIONS not predictions (which, if we accepted that, would already suffice to call them unscientific), let’s just assume their model runs count as predictions, and what do they predict, you can look that up in the IPCC reports, is progressive warming with higher CO2.
          But it hasn’t been warming for 17 years, look it up yourself.

Anyway, I didn’t see a single reference on your blog, and thus the whole site looks like one big farce claiming to provide credible scientific information. The interesting thing about the picture at the top of the article is precisely what you said – on the aggregate it shows a warming north america. The fact that 1/3 of North America is currently experiencing a cold spell means absolutely nothing, as you astutely observed… Do some research on rossby waves, the influence of a thickening atmosphere over the arctic, and the impact of arctic sea ice loss (something that really cannot be debated) and there you will find a few credible hypotheses on the impact of a warming planet *on the aggregate*. And don’t call climate change a null hypothesis, you’re making the math and stat ladies of this site cringe.

    The real danger to America is not gay Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a filthy gay muslim like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a gay Obama presidency than to restore the necessary,commonsense ,Godliness and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a creature for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr.gay Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the gay fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a gay Obama, who is, after all, merely a gay fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

  198. Dylan Christensen says:

    I was reading a news article about the record cold we’ve been having all across the U.S., and I came across a comment that REALLY made me realize how stupid and ignorant global warming advocates really are. AND I QUOTE:

    “Global warming deniers need to understand the complexity of what is happening. The mere fact that it’s getting colder doesn’t mean that it isn’t getting warmer. The increased heat produced by the burning of fossil fuels has been momentarily diverted into the subterranean depths of the oceans and into the stratosphere, which has altered the subterranean and jet stream currents, thereby producing polar vortexes that tumble down into the southern reaches of the United States, pushing the warmer air even higher into the stratosphere and subterranean ocean currents, making it colder when, of course, it is really warmer, once your consider temperatures higher-up and lower-down in our pristine environment. Confirmation is readily apparent to scientists. For example, deep sea mollusks on the ocean floor are no longer producing their heavy winter covering but instead are developing bikini-like coverings. The MIT supercomputers made precisely this prediction.” – A zombie

    SO…after reading this incredibly stupid comment from somebody who claims to be an expert, here is what I have gathered: Apparently heat doesn’t like the cold and buries itself deep into the ocean (at the bottom of the ocean) and the rest of the excess heat goes up into the stratosphere (yet somehow weather satellites don’t detect the excess heat). This somehow makes a “hot/cold/hot sandwhich” (heat is the “bread” and the cold is the “meat”) And this causes the water to look like it’s freezing up on the poles, but it’s actually just a “bikini” on the surface. NOW if all that garbage were true, that would mean that HEAT DOES NOT RISE, and it would also mean that our space technology that gauges temperatures and weather phenomena is non functional, inadequate, junk. Global warming advocates have taken on a role of “heads I win, tails you lose” Please let me know if I’m missing something…

    • Dylan Christensen says:

      **correction: it isnt the water wearing bikini’s, it’s the mollusks…mollusks wear bikinis to stay warm….

    • Linz says:
