Superstition In Congress

Representative David McKinley, West Virginia.

Is the climate changing? Absolutely.

No it isn’t.

CO2 causes asthma

No it doesn’t. Human breath contains 40,000 PPM CO2. The change in atmospheric CO2 levels over the past century is only one quarter of one percent of the level in human breath.

Congress parroting propaganda.

    Superstitions know no borders, and can make people stupid enough to debate real experts…

      Elizabeth May:
      “We would be, but for human contributions to the greenhouse effect, looking at global cooling right about now because we are between two ice ages. And Tim’s right, Ten thousand years ago, Canada was under several kilometers of ice and we were in an ice age. We’d be coming back round to that now. The earth would be cooling now, except that we’ve burned so many fossil fuels.”
      And that’s a bad thing how?

        GEE, CO2/Mankind causes

        1. Earth to not sliding into an ice age (Ruddiman;s Hypothesis)
        2. The greening of Earth.
        3. A warmer earth causes
        ….a. shrinks the deserts.
        ….b. less Hurricanes
        ….c. less tornadoes
        …..d. less blizzards

        And the Librotards think this is bad?

        BTW the drop into glaciation occurs with in decades not centuries.

    I have several SXSW concerts on my DVR, wonderful performances by great artists, but I would have walked out on this year’s event…

    Talk about your bad trip, only this time it’s not the acid that’s brown, it’s the shirts.

  3. “… but I repeat myself.”

  4. A C Osborn says:

    Steve, of course the Climate is Changing, it always has and always will providing there are an Atmosphere, seas and a sun.
    Do you think they mean that the Rate Of Change is changing, or the amplitude of the Changes is changing?
    As we all know they are not.

  5. Yes, as usual the adherents to the religion have it backwards. As a physician who has managed many asthmatics teetering on death, I can state categorically that asthma causes CO2. When the airways close and it becomes very difficult to fully empty the lungs the amount of CO2 In the body rises dramatically – a sure sign of ventilatory failure. Asthma in turn can be caused by many other ingredients in the air, let’s say for example smoke from indoor cooking fires in the absence of access to electricity or gas.

    • annieoakley says:

      Now that makes sense.

    • DD More says:

      ” Asthma in turn can be caused by many other ingredients”
      Is this not a trigger mechanism and not the cause? Research I have seen and talking to Dr Smith, who in the late 1950’s identified a genetic cause of asthma. Currently mother / father / both with asthma equates to around 60% to have with the children.

      • yes there can be some genetics and yes external triggers are not independently causative. It would be more accurate to say these external exposures are for most people cause or trigger of an asthma attack, however with extensive environmental exposure to airway irritants over a longtime, some people will have asthma they woudl nototherwise have had – so for some it is in fact a cause.

  6. Snowleopard says:

    Since CO2 is now “legally” a pollutant in USA per EPA, and if human breath really contains two orders of magnitude more CO2 than ambient air, how long will it be in USA before humans need a pollution waiver to breathe?

  7. omanuel says:

    One possible solution would be to convert two one-page sequels to CIimategate into a children’s book (with lots of pictures) on:

    “Our Beautiful, Bountiful, Benevolent Universe – God”

    Click to access Sequel.pdf

    Click to access Sequel2.pdf

    And include these credentials for the author:
    PhD, Nuclear Chemistry
    Postdoc – Space Physics
    Fulbright Scholar in Astrophysics
    Former NASA Principal Investigator
    for the Apollo Lunar Science Program

      Humans were “dumbed down” after Stalin emerged victorious from WWII so “elitist globalist” could rule the world.

      How dumb? How many pay for TV channels of ads dispersed with educationally worthless trash?

      How many can understanding every atom is a combination of

      a.) Two forms of one fundamental particle, the compact neutron (n) and the expanded hydrogen atom (H), and
      b.) Two forms of energy, rest mass (m) of particles and restless energy (E)

      These reversible change as the universe

      1. Expands: n => H; m => E: Entropy increases

      2. Contracts: H => n; E => m; Entropy decreases

      If a neutron were as big as a dime, its decay product would be a hydrogen atom as big as New Tork City!

      How many school children and politicians can understand?

    And the Globe keeps spinning.

    The Boston Globe

    Climate activists say snow record is nothing to celebrate

    They can spin all they want, but I think even most of the progressives in the eastern capital of Progressive Land are buying it these days.

  9. Mike says:

    The stuff coming out of Congress is pollution.

  10. BallBounces says:

    … which means every time we breathe out a polar bear loses its wings. Or something like that.

  11. scizzorbill says:

    Methinks he’s confusing climate with weather. Climate is what you can expect. Weather is what you get.

  12. SxyxS says:

    Human breath=40.000 ppm co2!!??
    Considering how much even the smallest fraction co2 (officially) can heat up even an entire planet i wonder why human breath isn’t 400++ degrees hot.
    (but maybe it is but we don’t know and maybe fire breathing dragons are real.They just use 40.000 ppm co2 to create amazingly hot temperatures)

    • emsnews says:

      It is the old ‘a butterfly flapping wings in Amazon brings on hurricanes’ story. 🙂 You may inhale but not exhale.

    • nielszoo says:

      I keep waiting for that jet of superheated plasma to shoot out the top of the can every time I open a soda outside in the sunlight over warm ground. I’m really afraid of the plastic bottles ’cause if they vaporize that makes all kinds of toxic gas. Funny, it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe the Climateers are wrong about that CO2 stuff.

    A quote for your readers and you to contemplate: “That reminds of something I read recently to the effect that liberals have hearts that bleed so profusely that it often prevents oxygen from getting to their brains and results in extreme lightheadedness, and cloudy and defective decision-making. ” Mark J. Perry, University of Michigan, Flint.

    There is a spike around the time that greedy capitalist Henry Ford raped the planet, exploited workers, repressed women and came out with his evil Model T. Then again when he came out with his even more evil Model A. Aside from that, hardly any change.

    • rah says:

      My grandfather on my fathers side grew up with the age of motorization. He learned his mechanics on the steam engines used on farms. From there he learned the internal combustion engines. He had a Ford Dealership that went bust with the depression. During that time he raced. Highly modified Model Ts that could make well over 80 mph even on the dirt of the county fair ground horse racing tracks he raced on. He held the national track record for 1/4 to 1/2 mile tracks for a couple years doing that. Told me there were many a night when he fell asleep on his feet working on his race car.

      He and I became close when I was 14 years old and helped him build a house out in the sticks on some land Dad had bought on the Tennessee River in Hardin County, TN. He showed me two tool sets in large wooden chests. They were the tools issued by Ford to their dealerships. Back then they issued a new set for each model year of Model T’s and later the Model A’s. Each chest had several trays with the slots for each specific tool and the full set of manuals and as I remember they were complete and like new.

      During WW II he made his living rebuilding cars. Vehicles that normally would have been totaled were rebuilt during the war because the auto manufactures turned their full production to war weapons and materials. He taught me some of the real craft of body working. The way it was done before fiberglass bondo was developed with zinc filler.

      After his death I never found out where those tool sets went. I have inquired through out my family and never gotten an answer. I would hate to think what they might be worth now.

      • Andy DC says:

        Interesting to hear that, what enterprising people like your grandfather did back in the day. Wonder what did happen to his tools.

        • rah says:

          He also had the brass steam whistle from the original ‘Maid of the Mist” steam boat that gave tours of the Niagara falls. Hooked it up to the air compressor in dads shop and tooted it. Said it didn’t sound the same as with steam.

    • nielszoo says:

      He’s also responsible for making charcoal briquettes… a double whammy in the evil CO2 department. Clever guy actually. He wanted people to drive more so he made charcoal out of scrap wood from the coachwork of the Model T and sold charcoal and picnic grills in kits at his dealerships. That company is now known as Kingsford and was renamed by Ford in honor of a relative, E.G. Kingsford, who supposedly brokered the deal for the land the charcoal plant was built on. (The Kingsford naming thing’s from the Net, so take it with a grain of charcoal… could be bunk, but it’s a nice story.)

      More worker exploitation. Forcing them to drive in the country with their families and picnic. You KNOW he’s evil if he’s for a stable, nuclear family.

  15. Alan Moorhouse says:

    In fact a good cure for hyperventilation which can occur during an asthma attack is to breath in and out of a paper bag. This is because the extra CO2 calms the breathing.

    Just shows what an ignoramus he is and shows what the whole establishment is like as they don’t dare to pick him up on it.
