Global Warming Makes Air Opaque

former (Colorado Springs) Mayor Mary Lou Makepeace was equally candid, saying she believes in human-caused global warming and prioritizes it as a concern. If we don’t do something to stop it, Makepeace said, “our children won’t be able to see Pikes Peak.”

  1. Because CO2 is pollution. It’s carbon, and carbon is black and sooty.

    CO2 makes the air shine golden in Australia.

    Forecast surface temperature in the northern hemisphere on 30/03/2015.
    Who will stop cold?,87.71,395

  5. Below is a link to the original editorial in the Colorado Springs Gazette. Some readers made sure the former mayor’s candid answers were not the only idiocy on display and added their own in the comment section:

    I propose we create a logarithmic scale*) to quantify the energy of explosive stupidity released in climate alarmist declarations, something like the Richter scale. As stupid as Mary Lou Makepeace’s statement was, she sounds extremely sensible compared to Donna Edwards (D-MD) here:

    ( – A group of House Democrats labeling themselves the Safe Climate Caucus held a press conference today to warn that if Congress does not address global warming, the country could face dire consequences, including detrimental effects to California wines and an end to Vermont skiing.

    One Democratic representative even worried that global warming could destroy the state of Maryland.

    “If we do nothing about what is happening, it will destroy our economy, it will destroy our state, and it will have a broad impact not just here in this country but around the world,” Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said at a press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday.

    Rep. Donna Edwards is a Democrat expert on climate change:

    4:19: Watch Bjørn Lomborg tell her how effective it is spending money on “cutting CO2 emissions” and watch her cutting him off.

    *) I don’t have a name for the scale yet

      I believe you’d need to have a scale per “industry” as politicians, reporters, actors and others all seem to have different ranges of stupidity.

      As for the political scale I’d humbly submit Pelosies after Nancy or Browns after Corrine. Rates of random, spurious and detrimental events must be Bidens I mean, that’s a “no brainer” in more than one sense.

      For actors it would really be a toss up between Paltros and Penns (Sean NOT Jillette.) They seem to be tied in the incoherent world view category. The hypocrisy scale here would be Actori as it would be difficult to parse out a single major contributor.

      I don’t watch or listen to news so I may be behind the curve for reporters but I think that Mathews or Mats after that idiot Chris may be appropriate. They would replace the old scale, Rathers, that were retired due to inaccuracies. There may be better candidates here since like the actors, there are a massive number to choose from. Maybe we just call them megaHacks?

      That “expert” on climate change is an anti-science dolt and propagandist – afraid of a boogeyman – purveying anti-scientific alarmism, and wanting my tax dollars to pay for it.

      She clearly has no idea what CO2 is.

      No skiing in Vermont????

      I live on the boarder of Vermont and we still have thick ice and snow on the ground from January’s snow storms! I ran out of places to plow the snow way back during February. The snow drifts were over my head.

      This insanity is very disturbing to watch, all the chatter about no snow while we struggle to move mountains of snow.

    Someone elected this dumb bint mayor? That’s right up there with Guam tipping over.

    The current temperature in the Northeast US.

    She’s right! I cannot see Pike’s Peak this morning! It’s worse than she thought!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Gator it is EVEN WORSE than she thought! Not only can’t I see Pike’s Peak this morning, I can’t even see the Smokey Mountains or the Atlantic ocean!!

      • See below. Don’t go out. Watch out for schoolchildren. Let husband know. Don’t drive your big truck. Only Prius and Audi pass through roadblocks. Must go now.

        • gator69 says:

          I wrote my own similar parody a few years back, and thankfully Cheap Trick forgave me…


          The bulb police, twisty bulbs make me see red
          The bulb police, I wish they all would drop dead
          The bulb police, sent by the IPCC, oh, no

          Those bulbs are pushed by creeps
          And the light hurts my eyes
          Incandescents are cheap
          And they will shine throughout the night, so bright

          ‘Cause they’re working for me
          And now I can see
          Every single night
          They’re better, that is plain
          The greens are just insane

          The bulb police, they must be fracked in the head (fracked on the head)
          The bulb police, stay clear or you will eat lead (you will eat lead)
          The bulb police, they’re coming to arrest me, oh, no

          Well, I can’t tell lies
          They’re made with mercury
          And when they fall, Oh (bleep)!
          From the room I must flee, in fright, aint right

          ‘Cause they’re poisoning for me
          They’re toxic debris
          Every single night
          They’re driving me insane
          That light just hurts my brain

          I try to read, they’re dim, headache, all for the arctic zone
          They don’t last long as advertised or glow with a warm tone
          They’re blinding me, I only hope, the Bulb Act will get done
          They irritate me, we can all thank that jerk James Hansen

          ‘Cause they’re truly crappy
          And sold by decree
          Every single light
          They’re driving me insane
          Those lights just hurt my brain

          The bulb police, they must be fracked in the head (fracked on the head)
          The bulb police, stay clear or you will eat lead (you will eat lead)
          The bulb police, they’re coming to arrest me
          The bulb police (police, police)
          The bulb police (police, police)
          The bulb police (police, police)
          The bulb police (police, police)
          The bulb police (police, police)
          The bulb police (police, police)

    • Reporting live from Boulder. Having second thoughts. Yesterday, Colorado Springs children saw Pikes Peak for the last time. Today it’s gone. Global warming turned the air opaque. Just like the Mayor said.

      Climate is worsening by the hour. Faster than anybody thought. Here is the change overnight:

      This is the view from our house:

      Boulder children started setting up Nuremberg Tribunals in school gyms. I hear they rounded up a few climate deniers. How did they find them in this air? People are afraid to step out. Nobody would find their way back. Deniers don’t dare at all. Schoolchildren are patrolling street corners. Checking people’s papers at entrances to supermarkets and cafes. Priuses and cars with correct bumper stickers allowed into Whole Foods parking lot. Bicyclists too.

      It’s dangerous and scary. Old and young most vulnerable:

      Knocks on the front door! Back door too! Can’t see anything. Take care, y’all. Dogs are barking. Signing off and destroying my hard drive.

        March, 2047 the “Diary of Colorado Wellington” is published after being found in a hidden attic apartment above a 24 hour organic deli and adult toy shop. First they came for the light bulbs… well, you know the rest… [wipes away tear]

        Fade to Black

      • emsnews says:

        HAHAHA, 🙂

        My mountain disappeared this afternoon, too. No one could see it even from less than a tenth of a mile away. The air was totally white!

  11. oeman50 says:

    That Pike’s Peak comment is probably due to the fact that all of the pictures of stacks that “spew” CO2 into the atmosphere are shown with billowing clouds of water vapor (the other greenhouse gas). And then, for good measure, they take the picture with the sun in a position that makes them ominously dark. Must be that carbon in the CO2.

  12. Curt says:

    You don’t understand. Our children will have a mutation so their eyes can only detect long wave infrared. So inreased GHGs will prevent them from seeing as far.

    • nielszoo says:

      So the pictures I’ve taken of our Moon with my LWIR camera are fake? How did they do that? I mean, I pushed the button myself… my my these skeptics are clever.

  13. Dave N says:

    ..and alarmists wonder why skeptics have an issue with relating CO2 as “carbon”? The trouble is that many of them wouldn’t even bother correcting her, lest they be also labeled with the D word.

    The stupid: it burns
