    They used to get away with it.

  2. Andy Weiss says:

    She seems sincere. She acts like she believes in her cause. Why do people look at the same data and come up with such different opinions?

    • glacierman says:

      Her career depends on it. What good is that PhD without the cause?

      • Latitude says:

        A Washington DC ‘airport ticket agent’ offers some examples of why the US is in so much trouble!

        1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

        2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts ..”

        Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod is in Massachusetts , Cape Town is in South Africa ..”
        His response — click..

        3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

        He replied, ‘Don’t lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!” (OMG)

        4. I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada ?”

        I said, ”No.”

        She said, ”But they look so close on the map” (OMG, again!)

        5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas .. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas … When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.” (Aghhhh)

        6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week.. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.

        I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

        7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?” I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’

        He replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”

        After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno , Ca. is (FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage..

        8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii ?” (Come to think of it I think it would be cheaper! – Too bad Kerry won’t be on board for the ride)

        9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright from Ala who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?”

        I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.” (Damn good question!)

        10 Senator Dianne Feinstein (One of the Democrat’s most senior member of congress) called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola , Florida . Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?”

        I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane.

        She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”

        11 Mary Landrieu, La. Senator, called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. “Oh, no I don’t. I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.”

        I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!” (I believe she’s blond)

        12 A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ”I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York .”

        I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ”Are you sure that’s the name of the town?”

        ‘Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the man.

        After some searching, I came back with, ”I’m sorry, sir, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a rhino anywhere.”

        ”The man retorted, ”Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!”

        So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ”You don’t mean Buffalo , do you?”

        The reply? ”Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”

        Now you know why the Government is in the shape it’s in!

        Could ANYONE be this DUMB?

        YES, THEY WALK AMONG US, ARE IN POLITICS, AND THEY BREED!!!

        Latitude,

        That was excellent.

    • suyts says:

      I think it is the “filtering view of belief.” She believes it to be true, so she sees it to be true. But, her statement about the Texas winters isn’t the most egregious.

      “Who doesn’t want renewable sources of energy?” Hayhoe told Yale e360 senior editor Fen Montaigne. “Who doesn’t want cleaner air and a thriving economy? Who doesn’t agree that we should be conservative with what we have? I think this is the way to move forward on this issue.”

      If she thought about it for a second, she’d know our renewable composition can not supplant our traditional sources of energy. Given that she lives in Texas I’m shocked she doesn’t understand the harm she’s advocating.

      Then she has the audacity to bring up the economy? It is her advocacy that is killing this nations economy. If we are ever to get out of the economic doldrums that we’re in, we’re going to have to once again become a production based economy. Our factories and refineries are going to have to start making products. This requires reliable, available, and cheap energy. Not energy contingent upon the wind blowing. Her advocacy condemns people to poverty. All she has to do to see the effect her advocacy would wrought on the U.S. is to look at some poverty stricken nation or place. Notice the squalor and ecological damage in addition to human suffering that poverty brings.

      If these people, including our friend Dr. Hayhoe, really gave a thought about the earth, and more importantly the inhabitants of the earth, they would change their advocacy. I would encourage Dr. Hayhoe to reconsider her position.

      The trouble is, she really believes it. Some people just don’t learn. Just look at Trenberth.

  3. Mike Davis says:

    Read closely: Winter temperatures are increasing at NEARLY every station WE LOOKED AT! Selective research gives you the answers you want.
    I am certain that with my limited knowledge I could find a series of stations in any state to give any trend I wanted to promote! I would only need to know what land use changes had occurred over the last hundred years or in this case picked the start and end dates that provided the desired answer.
    Glacierman made the best explanation: What good is a PHD without a cause?

    She does pay attention to data?
