Two Years Ago, Arctic Melting Was Blamed For The Warm Winter In The US

This winter. experts said the cold, snowy weather was caused by Arctic warmth and melting.

Two years ago, the experts said the exact opposite.

    The climate scientists are the JIm Bakkers and Oral Roberts’ of the movement – pure criminals, far from insane; calculating frauds collecting millions in grants and leaving the carbon footprints of entire cities as they fly from this carbon conference to that, all around the world.

    The faithful are by and large like the gullible victims of televangelists and Nigerian letter scammers, who’s lack of intelligence or woeful education has left them unable to discern fact from fiction or to investigate for themselves what is credible and what is fanciful nonsense.

    What will forever distinguish the CAGWing farce from previous mass delusions is the number of scientists from other fields who believed that computer models, which are really no more than absurd meteorological forecasts, could predict the future 10, 20 or 100 years from now (and to a degree of precision [plus or minus a couple of degrees]. Not only has nobody succeeded in the field of futurology to any great degree, but meteorologists can’t even do it more than about 24 hours in advance and even then, only incredibly imperfectly.

    • Andy Oz says:

      100% agree Anto.
      For some light entertainment, the satellite photo of Greenland offer some spectacular views of the north west glaciers right now.
      http://www.arctic.io/explorer/
      The low sun shows the geography of the Greenland archipelago almost in 3D and the glaciers can been seen so clearly. (I was looking for Flight MH370, but no luck)
      The NE glaciers are under a cloud of steam, according to alarmists, so we can”t see them melting. Oh well, maybe next week when the skies clear.

      • Anto says:

        Nice, Andy. You can zoom into to a very tight resolution there. Absolutely zero “green”. A hard life for anyone, let alone a bunch of vikings who called it “Greenland”.

        Now, picture this in a world which we are told is suffering from runaway CAGWing:
        Although Greenland is dominated by icecaps, Eirik found green pastures perfect for animal grazing and waters teeming with marine life within the deep fjords of the south-west coast. When Eirik returned with several hundred emigrants in AD 986, and the official settlement of the island began, large herds of cattle and sheep were brought from Iceland and kept on the wide meadows at the head of the fjords. Eirik was the leader of both the Eastern Settlement and the Western Settlement, which was between three to four hundred miles north.

      • Anto says:

        Since Mann & clowns assure us that Greenland is now so much warmer than it was back in the Vikings’ time, you’d expect that people would be flocking there for the balmy conditions it offers.

        Nuuk is the capital and largest city of Greenland. It is the seat of government, as well as the country’s largest cultural and economic center. In January 2013, it had a population of 16,454.

    Fraud is the first word that comes to mind.

  3. Morgan says:

    Two years ago, global warming caused us to have a mild winter. This year, global warming caused us to have a severely cold winter. I want the other kind of global warming, not this kind.

    • Mohatdebos says:

      Yes, but mild and wonderful was considered “extreme” weather, while this horrible cold and snow is “normal.”

  4. omanuel says:

    Climategate exposed the “modus operandi” of post-1945 government science, the “natural seeds of self-disclosure” In every lie, the basis for a common scripture in almost every religion:

    Truth is victorious, never untruth.”

  5. Edmonton Al says:

    My thought is that the MSM is getting more and more worried about loss of viewership, that they are pumping out more and more “scare” stories.
    The truth goes out the window.

    • Gail Combs says:

      The MSM is OWNED by the bankers. (See my Commentdetailing that ownership.)

      The Bankers have a vested interest in CAGW.

      World Bank Carbon Finance Report for 2007
      The carbon economy is the fastest growing industry globally with US$84 billion of carbon trading conducted in 2007, doubling to $116 billion in 2008, and expected to reach over $200 billion by 2012 and over $2,000 billion by 2020

      Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after ‘Danish text’ leak: Developing countries react furiously to leaked draft agreement…

      The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions.

      The document was described last night by one senior diplomat as “a very dangerous document for developing countries. It is a fundamental reworking of the UN balance of obligations. It is to be superimposed without discussion on the talks”….
      (wwwDOT)theguardian.com/environment/2009/dec/08/copenhagen-climate-summit-disarray-danish-text

      CAGW was ALWAYS about a power grab.

      Lamy, former World Trade Organization and possible new head of the EU, outlines the ‘Concerns’ being shoved down our throats:

      Pascal Lamy: Whither Globalization?: Is the globalized world of the 21st century being managed with a system — and a mindset — designed for a century that has faded away?

      ….In the same way, climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well…

      Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life?…

      At the same time, globalization is blurring the line between national and world issues, redefining our notions of space, sovereignty and identity….

      …finance is not the only area where domestic issues are turning into global concerns. Countries claim the right to use national resources as they see fit. But the byproduct can be greenhouse gases or disappearing fish stocks or raw material shortages — which impact the interconnected world we share…

      Then Lamy lets the real cat out of the bag:

      Economic, environmental, even social issues are becoming more global, but our politics remain local. Presidents, parliamentarians and bureaucrats are answerable first and foremost to national constituencies — whose interests remain largely domestic. Voters find it hard to understand, and accept, that their jobs can be displaced because of investment decisions in China….

      This raises a final challenge: How to provide global leadership? Mobilizing collective purpose is more difficult when we no longer face one common enemy, but thousands of complex problems….

      The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed.

      And that is where Environmenta ‘Causes’ and CAGW comes in. To provide a clear and compelling vision of why a new global Government matters.

      But the decision was not recent. and he lets that cat out of the bag too.

      All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty — rooted in freedom, openness, prosperity and interdependence.
      (wwwDOT)theglobalist.com/pascal-lamy-whither-globalization/

      In other words the decision to trash the USA and the US Constitution was made in the 1930s and FDR was on board with that decision. Much of the ‘reinterpretation’ of the Constitution to allow a powerful federal government is directly traceable to FDR.

      A critical point was the reinterpretation of the Commerce clause.

      The Commerce Clause: Route to Omnipotent Government

      After President Roosevelt threatened to pack the Court to dilute the influence of the uncooperative “nine old men,” a majority of the justices took to the most expansive definition of the commerce clause like a drunk to drink. The Court blessed the secretary of agriculture’s power to set minimum prices for milk sold intrastate.[within state] “The marketing of intrastate milk,” wrote the Court in the 1942 Wrightwood Dairy case, “which competes with that shipped interstate would tend seriously to break down price regulation of the latter.” Yes, so? What was the Court’s point? Only that nothing — especially not liberty — should be permitted to get in the way of the national government’s power to regulate the economy…

      Enter Roscoe Filburn, an Ohio dairy and poultry farmer, who raised a small quantity of winter wheat — some to sell, some to feed his livestock, and some to consume. In 1940, under authority of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the central government told Mr. Filburn that for the next year he would be limited to planting 11 acres of wheat and harvesting 20 bushels per acre. He harvested 12 acres over his allotment for consumption on his own property. When the government fined him, Mr. Filburn refused to pay.

      Wickard v. Filburn got to the Supreme Court, and in 1942, the justices unanimously ruled against the farmer. The government claimed that if Mr. Filburn grew wheat for his own use, he would not be buying it — and that affected interstate commerce. It also argued that if the price of wheat rose, which is what the government wanted, Mr. Filburn might be tempted to sell his surplus wheat in the interstate market, thwarting the government’s objective. The Supreme Court bought it.

      The Court’s opinion must be quoted to be believed:


      [The wheat] supplies a need of the man who grew it which would otherwise be reflected by purchases in the open market. Home-grown wheat in this sense competes with wheat in commerce.

      As Epstein commented, “Could anyone say with a straight face that the consumption of home-grown wheat is ‘commerce among the several states?’” For good measure, the Court justified the obvious sacrifice of Mr. Filburn’s freedom and interests to the unnamed farmers being protected:


      It is of the essence of regulation that it lays a restraining hand on the self-interest of the regulated and that advantages from the regulation commonly fall to others.

      After Wickard , everything is mere detail… Under this maximum commerce power, the government has been free to regulate nearly everything, including a restaurant owner’s bigotry. The Court has held that if Congress sees a connection to interstate commerce, it is not its role to second guess.

  6. Andy DC says:

    It’s hot because it is hot and it’s cold because it is hot and it is anything in between because it is hot. It is all entirely consistent with a catastophically warming planet. Then if all else fails, fudge the data and rig the thermometers. We are all going to die!

    • ccglea says:

      It’s interisting that when a scientist make a croect prediction, your labeled a “denier” and/or your work was not “peer reviewed”. When your predictions are wrong, you just make anothr prediction that will probablyly be wrong, or your prediction was wrong bevause of climate change or you come up with some absurd prediction that somehow is “peer reviewed”. It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad and dangerous.

  7. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Self serving greed drives a lot of lies, deceptions and fraud.

    Scientists are no different. Add a few dollops of narcissism and desire for fame and voila! you get the IPCC crew.

    • Gail Combs says:

      It is not even greed. It is “He who holds the Money Strings” controls people.

      All it takes is firing a few people and trashing their reputations and blackballing them so they can never get another job in their field to make the rest of the Sheeple become “Team Players” or at least keep their heads down and their mouths shut.

      Honesty is NOT the best policy.

      Honesty will turn you into a beggar and put you and your family out living on the street. If you are fired you do not even get unemployment insurance and you will not ‘Qualify’ for welfare or food stamps or anything else until you are dead broke. (I have been there, so I KNOW.)

      • Fred from Canuckistan . . . says:

        Greed and power . . . double the nasty. Amazing how the public thinks academics are all nice collegial folks seeking the truth when in fact universities are the nastiest, back stabbing treacherous organizations ever.

        • Gail Combs says:

          AMEN!

          That is why I want to DEFUND scientists and Universities.

          They have been traitors for a lot longer than most people realize.

          ““Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” ~Henry Kissinger

          The grab for control of the Food Supply began with FDR and his darn “Commerce Clause” Actually it began before that.

          CHAPTER NINE The Agricultural Depression [SECRETS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE By Eustace Mullins]

          William McAdoo was replaced in 1918 by Carter Glass as Secretary of the Treasury. Both Strauss and Glass were present during the secret meeting of the Federal Reserve Board on May 18, 1920, when the Agricultural Depression of 1920-21 was made possible.

          One of the main lies about the Federal Reserve Act when it was being ballyhooed in 1913 was its promise to take care of the farmer. Actually, it has never taken care of anybody but a few big bankers. Prof. O.M.W. Sprague, Harvard economist, writing in the Quarterly Journal of Economics of February, 1914, said:

          “The primary purpose of the Federal Reserve Act is to make sure that there will always be an available supply of money and credit in this country to meet unusual banking requirements.”
          (wwwDOT)whale.to/b/m_ch9.html

          Then the elite, with the help of Milner’s Round Tables really got their act together.

          …With World War II, America saw its agricultural system intentionally subjected to political policies that radically transformed it. What was once a decentralized system that provided a means to self sufficiency and independence for tens of millions of farmers was purposefully centralized into a capital-intensive fossil-fuel dependent system that restructured local economies, permitting their wealth to be extracted by what are now transnational cartels…

          This transformation was the result of organized plans developed by a group of highly powerful — though unelected — financial and industrial executives who wanted to drastically change agricultural practices in the US to better serve their collective corporate financial agenda. This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations. CED has influenced US domestic policies [ever since]…

          Composed of chief executive officers and chairmen from the federal reserve, the banking industry, private equity firms, insurance companies, railroads, information technology firms, publishing companies, pharmaceutical companies, the oil and automotive industries, meat packing companies, retailers and assisted by university economists — representatives from every sector of the economy with the key exception of farmers themselves — CED determined that the problem with American agriculture was that there were too many farmers. But the CED had a “solution”: millions of farmers would just have to be eliminated….

          In a number of reports written over a few decades, CED recommended that farming “resources” — that is, farmers — be reduced….

          Some of the report’s authors would go on to work in government to implement CED’s policy recommendations. Over the next five years, the political and economic establishment ensured the reduction of “excess human resources engaged in agriculture” by two million, or by 1/3 of their previous number…

          CED members were influential in business, government, and agricultural colleges, and their outlook shaped both governmental policies and what farmers were taught. Farmers found themselves encouraged to give up on a farming system that employed minimal outsourced inputs and capital and get “efficient” by adopting instead a system that required they go into debt in order to purchase ever more costly inputs, like fossil-fuel based fertilizers, chemicals, seeds, feed grain, and machinery.

          CED’s plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers’ lives ended in suicide …..

          The local, decentralized food distribution networks that were previously in place became subject to corporate buyouts, vertical integration and consolidation, leaving farmers with fewer and fewer outlets to sell their goods. With this consolidation of grain handlers, railways, food processing, meat packing, brewing and beverage makers, cereal makers, food retailers and restaurants, more and more of the food dollar went to processors and retailers, which gained increased market power.

          Farmers, meanwhile, were and continue to be squeezed on both ends: by input suppliers putting upward pressure on selling prices and by output buyers exerting downward pressure on their buying prices. This analysis is confirmed…

        • Gail Combs says:

          An interesting comment by Lenin (who was sent to take over Russia by the US bankers)

          “The Socialist Revolution in the US cannot take place because there are too many small independent farmers there. Those people are the stability factor. We here in Russia must hurry while our government is stupid enough to not encourage and support the independent farmership.” V. Lenin, the founder of the Russian revolution
          (From Anna Fisher) link

          This is why farmers have been forced off their land in the USA for the last hundred years. The ultimate goal is UN Agenda 21 Transit Villages the modern version of Feudal fiefdom.

  8. The scientists are incompetent, deluded (by false theories: the “greenhouse”, and radiative transfer as a proxy for atmospheric warming), and utterly careless of their professional responsibility to adhere to the observable facts, especially definitive evidence against the consensus, which they have committed fraud to distort and/or suppress. They are insane to believe they can get away with it. The reporting media are suborned, and have criminally cast aside THEIR professional responsibility, to uncover the truth rather than the politically-preferred lie. The Insane Left is a dog gone mad, biting at the very hands that feed it, our constitutional system of governance of, by and for individuals having inalienable rights above those of the state.

    As a wise–albeit fictional–man once said, in a moment of utter clarity, in a situation much like our own today: It’s a madhouse, a madhouse.

  9. The Iconoclast says:

    A credulous media, or should we say a conspiratorial one, breathlessly reports every claim without even asking about its conflict with the last one. Mencken, were he alive today, would not be trumpeting the consensus and castigating “deniers”. Anytime there was a “consensus”, he smelled a rat. Of course he’d probably be forced into retirement, or worse.

    I think the deal is that most all the embracers of AGW/climate change are like, well, it’s good to head that way even if the reasons for doing it aren’t true.

    I have a concern that, after the whole thing is in a shambles, guys like Paul Ehrlich will still be sought out for interviews and fawned over and never asked hey, you’ve been wrong about the big stuff for your entire career, wanna account for that?

    When you are schizophrenic both scenarios can be true at the same time.

    • Gail Combs says:

      They are not schizophrenic. I would call them Meglomaniacs. They think they will be well rewarded for their treachery but history shows most are put to the sword in the consolidation of power after the ‘revolution’

      Who wants a KNOWN traitor at their back?

      Also the Elite want to eliminate a lot of ‘Useless eaters’ and what is more useless than ‘scientists’ who can’t follow the scientific method? or Academics who only teach highbrow propaganda?

  12. rw says:

    I wonder if any of you will ever notice that the patterns of explanation that you tend to favor are the mirror image of the patterns favored by the warmists when they try to ‘explain’ the denialists?

    • Gail Combs says:

      Of course we have noticed. It is called PROJECTION:

      Psychological projection… a defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world.[1] For example, a person who is rude may accuse other people of being rude.

      Although rooted in early developmental stages,[2] and classed by George Eman Vaillant as an immature defence,[3] the projection of one’s negative qualities onto others on a small scale is nevertheless a common process in everyday life.[4]
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection

      Thus ‘Den!ers’ are accused of being well funded and funded by Big Oil when it is Warmists who are actually well funded by the likes of British Petroleum, Shell Oil and various national governments.
