Understanding Natural Variability

Humans don’t have much control over the climate outside of their living room, so all large scale climate changes are natural variability

This entire climate conversation is a bunch of contrived BS, with idiotic words like “forcing”  We don’t push the climate around, the climate pushes us.

    The AGW scare is the epitome of human naivety. Reminds me of Suzuki’s incongruent “humble” speech.

    if I hear polar vortex one more time

    After the great 2004 tsunami, I watched a report on local Thai villages that organized to throw large quantities of food into the sea. They explained, and were convinced, the sea’s behaviour was a result of some transgression they had made against her. They were making offerings to appease some spirit. It’s human nature to believe we and our activities are significant in the bigger picture.

    • Andy Oz says:

      Clare Graves work explains that observation:
      Purple
      Tribal cultures make sacrifices to appease the sea spirits
      Red
      Power god individuals say the sea spirit gave him it’s power over water
      Blue
      Absolute one right way thinkers believe it is an act of god and perhaps punishment for our sins. The people who died broke the rules. Some climate nazis reside in this zone, particularly many government scientists and communist econuts.
      Orange
      Entrepreneurs and most scientists would think about building away from tsunami zones and installing tsunami warning systems and evacuation procedures. Skeptics generally fall in this level.
      Green
      Environmentalists who believe that humans are the ultimate cause of all things bad and a tax on everyone will pay for white elephant systems to attempt to stop the tsunami and the earthquake. On the good side of this level, health professionals such as medicines sans frontiers supply emergency medical assistance after disasters.

      Clare graves discovery explains why climate alarmist nazis think the way they do, and why there is conflict between their views and the views of skeptics.

    In order to believe in the AGW scare one would have to swallow the idea that the weather would always be lovely were it not for the industrial revolution even though we have records of droughts, floods, and such dating back to Biblical times. One also has to believe that minute increases temperatures are uniformly catastrophic.

    The bad thing is that the leftists amongst us were singing the praises of the Soviet Union right up until the day it collapsed. These clowns will cling to the AGW scare right up until the day it collapses.

    • Gail Combs says:

      The left is still singing praises of the Soviet Union and be moaning its passing.

      However now they have a new model. The European Union and that is the model they want to use for Global Governance. Global Governance: Lessons from Europe: What can the world learn about global governance from the diplomatic model of the European Union?

      This is another article taken from a speech by the French socialist that was head of the World Trade Organization, Director-General Pascal Lamy. It is from a speech at the Oxford Martin School, Oxford University on 8 March 2012.

      Global governance requires localising global issues” — Lamy

      ….There is one place where attempts to deal with these challenges have been made and where new forms of governance have been tested for the last 60 years: in Europe. The European construction is the most ambitious experiment in supranational governance ever attempted up to now. It is the story of a desired, delineated and organized interdependence between its Member States. How has this endeavour coped with the challenges I have just outlined?

      First, on the question of efficiency, Europe scores in my view rather highly. Thanks to the primacy of EU law over national law. Thanks to the work of the European Court of Justice in ensuring enforcement and respect for the rule of law. And thanks to a clear articulation between the Commission, the Parliament, and the European Court of Justice. It also scores highly from the point of view of redistribution policies. The European structural funds and cohesion policies have overall played a key role in the development of European regions and Member States.

      The picture is more nuanced if we look at the issue of leadership. Europe has had a relatively good record in terms of leadership as long as the leadership of the Commission was accepted. It is the Commission who pushed through the creation of the internal market in the early 1990s and of the euro in the late 1990s, two key successes of the European construction project. But today, leadership is blurred by the competition between the Commission and the European Council. This competition does not only affect Europe’s leadership, it also weakens coherence of European actions. It affects the manner in which Europe is perceived abroad.

      Finally, legitimacy is the area in which, in my view, Europe scores less well. We are witnessing a growing distance between European public opinions and the European project. One could have expected that the European institutional set up, with growing powers entrusted to the European Parliament would have resulted in greater legitimacy. But this is contradicted by the declining numbers participating in elections to the European Parliament. Europe continues to be seen as distant, far away from the everyday lives and concerns of citizens. Despite constant efforts to adapt the European institutions to democratic requirements, over the past 50 years, there has been no resulting democratic spark. Euros cepticism is on the rise, often encouraged by politicians who are tempted to use Europe as a scapegoat for the difficult decisions they have to take at home, a fortiori in times of crisis. Legitimacy remains a litmus test for Europe.

      … I nevertheless believe that it teaches us valuable lessons for global governance. Let me try to lay out a few pragmatic ideas for a possible way forward to bridge the global governance deficit.

      In terms of institutions, the European integration process shows that supra-national governance can work.… (wwwDOT)wto.org/english/news_e/sppl_e/sppl220_e.htm

      As Lamy explains in that speech and elsewhere “legitimacy” is the major problem for the globalists.

      “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

      To improve policy coherence, we need to build consensus…. To achieve consensus, we need to strengthen the system’s legitimacy by better reflecting the interests and concerns of citizens…. [This is where Maurice Strong’s NGOs come in. They give the illusion of ‘reflecting the interests and concerns of citizens’ and therefore fool people into thinking there is a consensus even though the elite’s foundations are the ones running the NGOs via ‘Donations’]

      Governing this globalized world can be messy and frustrating. But the fiction that there is an alternative is naïve and dangerous. Naïve because it ignores that we are becoming more — not less — dependent on one another. Dangerous because it risks plunging us back to our divided past — with all of its conflicts and tragedies.

      This article was adapted from Pascal Lamy’s speech, “Whither Globalization,” presented at the Council for the United States and Italy conference in Venice, on June 4, 2011.
      (wwwDOT)theglobalist.com/pascal-lamy-whither-globalization/

      The reason Lamy talks of Interdependence and ‘Danger’ in ‘our divided past — with all of its conflicts and tragedies.’ Is explained in this article by Dale C. Copeland, “Economic Interdependence and War: A Theory of Trade Expectations,” International Security, Vol. 20, no.4 (Spring 1996)

      Does economic interdependence increase or decrease the probability of war among states? With the Cold War over, this question is taking on importance as trade levels between established powers such as the United States and Russia and emerging powers such as Japan, China, and Western Europe grow to new heights. In this article, I provide a new dynamic theory to help overcome some of the theoretical and empirical problems with current liberal and realist views on the question.

      The prolonged debate between realists and liberals on the causes of war has been largely a debate about the relative salience of different causal variables. Realists stress such factors as relative power, while liberals focus on the absence or presence of collective security regimes and the pervasiveness of democratic communities.(1) Economic interdependence is the only factor that plays an important causal role in the thinking of both camps, and their perspectives are diametrically opposed….

    That is probably the most concise summary of climate and the CAGW fraud I have read anywhere.

    AMEN

  7. It’s just like how they portray the jet stream as a force that moves weather around, Greg Laden describes it as drunken due to AGW. What a crock.

  8. Gail Combs says:

    I think the Elite set-up two models for a global government. One was the Soviet Union and the other was the European Union. We know that they had now problems with experimenting on live children as John Dewey’s experiments in Chicago, funded by John D. Rockefeller.

    In 1894, Dewey was appointed head of the department of philosophy, psychology and education at the University of Chicago which had been established two years earlier by a gift from John D. Rockefeller. In 1896, Dewey created his famous experimental Laboratory School where he could test the effects of the new psychology on real live children.
    Dumbing Down America

    We also know that the Bankers funded the establishment of the Soviet Union. We know this from Congressman McFadden speech in Congress on the Federal Reserve Corporation, 1934

    …Some people who think that the Federal Reserve Banks United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.

    “These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. “Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country…

    “Roosevelt did what the International Bankers ordered him to do!

    “Do not deceive yourself, Mr. Chairman, or permit yourself to be deceived by others into the belief that Roosevelt’s dictatorship is in any way intended to benefit the people of the United States:

    “He is preparing to internationalize this Country and to destroy our Constitution itself in order to keep the Fed intact as a money institution for foreigners. “Mr. Chairman, I see no reason why citizens of the United States should be terrorized into surrendering their property to the International Bankers who own and control the Fed. The statement that gold would be taken from its lawful owners if they did not voluntarily surrender it, to private interests, show that there is an anarchist in our Government.

    “The statement that it is necessary for the people to give their gold- the only real money- to the banks in order to protect the currency, is a statement of calculated dishonesty!

    “By his unlawful usurpation of power on the night of March 5, 1933, and by his proclamation, which in my opinion was in violation of the Constitution of the United States, Roosevelt divorced the currency of the United States from gold, and the United States currency is no longer protected by gold. It is therefore sheer dishonesty to say that the people’s gold is needed to protect the currency.

    “Roosevelt ordered the people to give their gold to private interests- that is, to banks, and he took control of the banks so that all the gold and gold values in them, or given into them, might be handed over to the predatory International Bankers who own and control the Fed….

    “Roosevelt cast his lot with the usurers. “He agreed to save the corrupt and dishonest at the expense of the people of the United States.

    It is no wonder the bankers drove McFadden from office and when he continued to travel the country and give speeches they had him assassinated.

    If Global Warming really IS the biggesy threat to humanity, why isn’t the AGW crowd trying to do something that will actually stop it or reverse it and do so cheaply?

    For $20-30 billion and a few dozen KC-135 sorties, we could lay enough sulfur aerosol in the lower stratosphere to geoengineer the coldest year in the last century by next year.

    It’s an inexpensive way that won’t have a century lag. Immediate results to fight the greatest threat facing humanity would result in a Nobel Peace Prize. Right?

    Wrong. There isn’t any money or power in that.

  10. Brian H says:

    The AGWarmists want cooling? Be careful what you ask for–you may get it. Virtually every crisis attributed to Warming is actually a consequence of cold, and you get crashed agriculture, hypothermic death, and massive deflection of fuel resources to heating as a side benefit.
