Democrats “Believe In Science”

By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.

  • Galileo Galilei

Last night Martin O’Malley announced that “Democrats believe in science” right before he said that “we” can make the electrical grid 100% wind and solar by the year 2050. I’m not sure who “we” is, but I am pretty sure that the sun doesn’t shine at night and that the wind doesn’t blow all the time. Only a complete, utter moron would base the grid off of intermittent low intensity energy sources.

In 2008, science believer Robert Kennedy Jr. blamed the demise of Virginia snowfall on Sarah Palin.

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.

When he was born in the 1950’s there was very little snow, but a sharp drop in temperatures from 1955 to 1960 led to a large increase in snowfall in the 1960’s – which is what he remembers. Since then, DC area snowfall has returned to normal levels.

Washington DC is facing  the possibility of a monster snowstorm later this week, with my favorite cycling destination right in the middle of it.

There has been no long term trend in temperatures or snowfall around DC, and also no change in the frequency of hot days.

Democrats confuse science with superstition.  They refuse to look at facts, and instead rely on their own echo chamber propaganda as the basis of their beliefs.

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

  • Galileo Galilei

Science is not a belief system. It is a process which requires thought and discussion to progress – not censorship sand dogma.

It is surely harmful to souls to make it a heresy to believe what is proved.

The Satellite Deniers

2016-01-17-16-52-39 2016-01-17-16-51-37

The climate mafia has enlisted these two handsome gentlemen to discredit satellite temperatures. Neither of them knows anything about the topic, but their specialties are talking climate trash for cash – so they were perfect for the job.

Satellites are a problem for the climate mafia, because they show just how bad recent surface temperature fraud is.

Wood for Trees: Interactive Graphs

The claim from the climate clowns is that satellite temperatures have to be adjusted for error, unlike surface temperatures which they say “hardly need to be adjusted.

Wow! All this data tampering for nothing?

They do have just one minor problem however. The 1995 IPCC report, authored by none other than NOAA’s own Tom Karl, showed that satellite temperatures matched NOAA balloon data, and that neither showed any warming since 1979.

There is no legitimate basis for disputing the satellite temperatures. This is just one more layer of fraud piled on by the usual clowns.

Barack Obama’s “Climate Deal” With China

2016-01-17-10-00-25

FACT SHEET: U.S.-China Joint Announcement on Climate Change and Clean Energy Cooperation | whitehouse.gov

In 2014, President Obama announced a “breakthrough climate agreement with China.”

Over the twelve months after the historic deal, China approved 155 new coal fired power plants, almost one every other day.

2016-01-17-10-04-562016-01-17-10-04-48

an astounding 155 planned projects received a permit this year alone, with total capacity equal to nearly 40 percent of operational coal power plants in the United States.

China’s CO2 emissions are skyrocketing, and will continue to do so for at least the next 15 years.

China is not worried about sea level rise. They are financing a new runway in the Maldives.

China’s leadership is more than happy to play along with Barack Obama’s efforts to wreck the US economy – but it has nothing to do with climate.

The NASA Global Warming Hiatus

In 1988, NASA’s James Hansen predicted 1.3C warming above 1960 by the year 2015, under his “Business as Usual” Scenario A, with exponential growth after the year 2000.

Closeup of the hiatus since 2002.

2016-01-17-07-19-56

Instead of what Hansen predicted, NASA temperatures nearly flatlined after 2002, and are tracking Hansen’s zero emissions after the year 2000 Scenario C.

2016-01-17-06-46-35

Even after all their data tampering, NASA still shows the hiatus. And more importantly they show that increasing CO2 has had no detectable effect on the global temperature. Temperatures are where Hansen expected them to be without any increase in atmospheric CO2.

Global Wierding In January 1937

January 1937 was the coldest on record west of the Mississippi River, and the warmest on record east of the Mississippi. If this happened now, Bernie Sanders would call for immediate global communism to alter the jet stream.

2016-01-17-05-13-34

docs.lib.noaa.gov/rescue/mwr/065/mwr-065-01-c1.pdf

To make matters even more disconcerting to climate experts, this climate change horror came less than a year after one of the coldest Februaries on record in 1936.

2016-01-17-05-20-26

docs.lib.noaa.gov/rescue/mwr/064/mwr-064-02-c1.pdf

And July 1936 was the hottest month on record in the US, with the possible exception of July 1901.

2016-01-17-05-23-27

Atmospheric CO2 was below 310 PPM at the time.

Trip Savings

I’m just back from two car-free weeks in Maryland/Washington DC. My local transport costs.

  1. $24 round trip (fossil fuel powered) bus fare to DIA
  2. $20 round trip (fossil fuel powered) Metro fare from DCA
  3. $60 (fossil fuel powered) taxis
  4. $10 (fossil fuel powered) Marc train
  5. $10 Bicycle brake pads

Total $124

Had I used cars :

  1. $20 round trip driving to DIA
  2. $120 parking at DIA
  3. $500 car rental DCA

Total $640

I saved over $500 and was happy on my bicycle vs. miserable in the traffic. Plus the airport buses are much more convenient than driving.
