Senator Sanders says that scientists are “virtually unanimous” that humans are already causing devastating climate change.
Bernie Sanders Wrecks Republican Plans By Offering Climate Change Amendment To Keystone XL
Republicans need to demand that he produce evidence to back his wildly fraudulent claims up. Not one single thing he said has any basis in fact, or any documentation to back it up.
Sanders goal is to give Obama political cover for a veto. Hopefully the Republican leadership will not let him get away with this fraud. There has never been any survey which has asked scientists anything remotely close to Sanders’ claims.
Only 52% of American Meteorological Society members believe that humans are primarily responsible for global warming, much less believe that it is a catastrophe.
Unfortunately 97% of our national legislators are only as informed as their advisors.
I don’t hold too much hope in any of our congressional leaders making any meaningful objection to Bernie and his fellow travelers claims.
scientists are “virtually unanimous” that humans are already causing devastating climate change.
so its just me?
I am confused. How do the democrat elites stay in power (or regain it) by blocking one pipe line?

Seems they had an interesting bill pass the house.
I am not at all sure I like this bill. It seems to me it can be very easily gamed to declare someone like Steve McIntyre as ‘not an expert’ while allowing several WWF and Sierra Club types in as ‘advisors’
Way too complicated and redundant. Abolish the EPA and there is no (Political) Science Advisory Board needed at all. The EPA is an organization stealing land, water and cash for inside the beltway dreams and schemes.
When graphs or facts are presented, it would be nice to reference their origin. 99.34% of all people like me would appreciate it. 🙂
Hoover over the picture/graph and it will give you the link
personally I would use a mouse, but if you think a vacuum cleaner would work better who am I to challenge? [*smirks behind hand*]
Never type a comment before at least one cup of caffeine. Especially when you can not spell worth a damn.
“Proof? The Treason Party doesn’t need stinkin’ proof! Demanding ‘proof’ is the way we traitors shut you up! There is no way in hell that you can ever ‘prove’ anything to us traitors–and you are NOT allowed to use our favorite tactic ever again!”
the mere fact that politicians speak out in support of the warmist meme should be all the warning the ordinary person needs . after all we have all heard the true saying “how do you know a politician is lying ? their lips are moving.”
Can anyone produce any evidence at all that the minute warming of the past hundred or so years and the lack of any warming in the past twenty years has in itself caused one iota of a problem, in itself? There is really nothing but vague pronouncements. Where is the evidence?
gregole: Have a look here. Maybe it’s just the thermometers that are causing the warming.
No it is the manipulation by ClimAstrologists that is causing warming as Steve has been carefully pointing out.
GEE, who ya gonna believe?
On the one hand we have this text.
On the other we have this article at Judith Curry’s site.
LiG = Liquid in Glass
MMTS = Minimum/Maximum temperature sensors.
SWAG I would thing the new thermistors would be a lot more ‘responsive’ to changes in temperature and therefore would give higher readings for Max temperatures and lower for min temps.
This can be added to the info in my comment HERE.
Cenentafriend made an interesting comment on the new rain gauges.
Seems they read low…. OH MY A DROUGHT!!!!
First thing they should do is ask for their definition of “climate change”, and ask whether the regular swings from warming to ice ages before humans even evolved into existence are counted in that.
That’s the trouble when the complex is perverted into the simplistic: it usually means that simpletons are responsible.
Until they can explain Dansgaard–Oeschger events they can not claim CAGW exists. Dansgaard-Oeschger events, Bond events and Heinrich events that cause global temps to change 8C, 10C and even 16C in dramatically short times and no one really knows why.
Gail you have it right.
“nobody knows why”
Ergo, how can anyone rely on a model that has CO2 as the sole climate driver?
“Nobody knows why.”
Very true — but we can add a little bit more. “Nobody knows why — but when we consider the absolute failure of Global Climate Models based primarily on the radiative effects of CO2, we can at least say that CO2 is NOT the reason.”
It’s almost like pop culture. The words of today are most important. Any real facts are quite irrelevant.
Have you forgotten that superstitious savages believe, truly believe that words CREATE things through magic?
Naturally, they’d cast spells using those magic words–after consuming their magic mushrooms.
It’s been very many years since the shooms…😏
“Have you forgotten that superstitious savages believe, truly believe that words CREATE things through magic? ”
Savages, yes, but also people who have grown up with waaaaay too much power. These are people who believe (based on their own, personal experience) that words create reality.
“Send a man with a car.”
“I want this room painted a darker color.”
“Steak? No, lobster…”
“I feel like going to the islands for a week or two.”
“I have this great idea!”
They say something — and it happens. They don’t need to check with their boss. They don’t need to transfer funds to their checking account. They don’t need to pick up the kids at daycare first and then drop the laundry off at the cleaners. They don’t need to know HOW it happens, or WHY it happens or even WHO is actually bringing the thing to fruition. All they have experienced for years and decades, maybe even all their life, is just “Say something, and it becomes real.”
Personally, I think that a large percentage of the people we have in power are sociopaths — but even if someone started off decent, started off sane, the experience of living in a world where words create reality would drive someone at least a little wacky. The human metabolism was not designed for us to stay healthy on a diet of 100% wedding cake all the time. Human psychology was not designed for us to stay healthy on a diet of too much power, either.
It ain’t natural….
McConnell is going to vote this scam in the Senate. My crystal ball says, “I see increased taxes all the way to the horizon.”
I’m pretty sure that excess co2 makes planets grow faster and bigger. That’s a fact. Easily demonstrated by adding co2 to a green house. You can extrapolate that to the whole earth and I guarantee trees will grow. Co2 has a cycle just like water does. Co2 rains down, goes into the oceans and is the source for sea shells. No acidification of the oceans. Trees are made of sequestered carbon!
People seem to think carbon stays in the air forever. It doesn’t. Its what trees are made of you controlling green peace douche bags!
What? You can grow a barn with just water, CO2 and sunlight! 🙂

I’m a scientist (chemistry PhD) and I’m not virtually or even remotely unanimous. My calcs suggest 2XCO2 is about 0.7 C/doubling. Which, if you do the arithmetic, is harmless.
I suppose there are plenty of unanimous scientists out there that disagree with me. Please tell me where my analysis is wrong. No one has in 4 years. But then I do know data, modelling and stats as I work in those areas. All the information you need to replicate it is in the text below the HadCET graph. The model has been working well for 3 years so far.
Goldman Sachs should get into Climate Science, they are only $105 the oil price today lol http://www.businessinsider.com.au/goldmans-jeffrey-currie-calls-150-oil-2013-1
The activists would rather have the oil sands transported by train or truck that’s spewing CO2 before and during the transport with the possibility of crashing or derailing and spilling their load over a secure pipeline? Is that liberal thinking?
Obummer’s good buddy Warren Buffett owns the rail line.
It is just another example of crony capitalism.
Sanders is at least an avowed Socialist – which means he is more honest than 97% of the other democrats. 😉
Bernie Sanders is a lunatic voted into power by Vermont pothead aging hippies.
There are red states and blue states. Vermont is tie-died.
I almost took a job there and but I came to my senses first.
Sanders has laid the trap. Each statement (1) (2) and (3) is true.
(1) Do you want to claim climate change is not real?
(2) Do you want to claim that man, through deforestation, urban heat islands, etc has not had an effect on climate?
(3) Do you want to claim that climate change does not cause devastating effects? (See Little Ice Age).
If the Right had a sack, they’d add an amendment with a 4th statement that says something like:
(4) However, there is no evidence linking human activity to catastrophic events caused by climate change.
