The Dark Halls Of Superstition At The US Capitol

In yesterday’s Senate EPW hearing, Democrats repeated over and over again that Mann-made CO2 is causing sea level to rise on the East Coast, and was going to drown us all.

So let’s try correlating actual sea level measurements vs. CO2. Manhattan and Atlantic City have the longest tide gauge records on the East Coast, and both showed that sea level rose much faster vs. CO2, when CO2 was below 315 PPM.

The reason for this is because there is no correlation between sea level and CO2. The apparent sea level rise is due to a linear subsidence of the land, rather than rise of the seas.

    Only the ignorant still believe in unicorns. But then that covers most of government in DC.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Has our nation’s deliberative body at the Capitol been ordering-up chicken entrails for the purpose of feeding their egos? Or ‘forecasting’ the climate future?

    They had best look closely at the general in November …

      Sean Thomas at the UK Telegraph describes these meetings perfectly.

      When it comes to climate change, we have to trust our scientists, because they know lots of big scary words

      Whither the weather? As you may have heard, a conference of national forecasters assembled this week….

      ….most of this reportage has been second-hand. Unprecedentedly, I had direct access to the meteorologists concerned, as I was in Exeter in spirit form, and I managed to speak to the principal actors.

      First, I asked Stephen Belcher, the head of the Met Office Hadley Centre, whether the recent extended winter was related to global warming. Shaking his famous “ghost stick”, and fingering his trademark necklace of sharks’ teeth and mammoth bones, the loin-clothed Belcher blew smoke into a conch, and replied,

      “Here come de heap big warmy. Bigtime warmy warmy. Is big big hot. Plenty big warm burny hot. Hot! Hot hot! But now not hot. Not hot now. De hot come go, come go. Now Is Coldy Coldy. Is ice. Hot den cold. Frreeeezy ice til hot again. Den de rain. It faaaalllll. Make pasty.”

      Startled by this sobering analysis, I moved on to Professor Rowan Sutton, Climate Director of NCAS at the University of Reading. Professor Sutton said that many scientists are, as of this moment, examining the complex patterns in the North Atlantic, and trying to work out whether the current run of inclement European winters will persist.

      When pressed on the particular outlook for the British Isles. Professor Sutton shook his head, moaned eerily unto the heavens, and stuffed his fingers into the entrails of a recently disembowelled chicken, bought fresh from Waitrose in Teignmouth.

      Hurling the still-beating heart of the chicken into a shallow copper salver, Professor Sutton inhaled the aroma of burning incense, then told the Telegraph: “The seven towers of Agamemnon tremble. Much is the discord in the latitude of Gemini. When, when cry the sirens of doom and love. Speckly showers on Tuesday.”

      It’s a pretty stark analysis, and not without merit. There are plenty of climate change scientists who are equally forthright on the possibilities of change, or no change, and of more hot, or less hot, or of rain, or no rain, or of Britain turning into the Sahara by next weekend, or instead becoming a freezing cold Frostyworld ruled by a strange, glistening ice-queen – crucially, it all depends on the time of day you ask them, and whether or not they had asparagus the day before…..

      Now there is a journalist who has a real handle on Climastrology.
