Man-made Global Warming – er Climate Change – is a joke. There hasn’t been any global warming in 18 years. Of course as soon as the Warmers discovered it was no longer warming they changed the name to Climate Change. Now every weather event is blamed on Climate Change which is to say humankind is at fault.
Along the way Warmers have used computer climate models to predict the future, touting the model’s output as gospel. But the computer models are only spitting out what has been programmed in. Garbage in, garbage out. To convince skeptics they have resorted to falsifying data and creating hysteria with alarming conclusions that were just dreamed up to get a frightened populace to go along with their absurd claims. There is and never has been any drop off in the Polar Bear population. As a matter of fact Polar Bear populations are on the rise. The Antarctic is not losing ice, it is gaining ice. Arctic melting has reversed itself and now is going the other way. Al Gore told us that by now Boston, New York, Baltimore, Miami would all be under water. They, of course, are not.
The impetus behind this hoax is the money. $4.7 billion per year of taxpayer money is allocated to Global Warming Research. Grants are only given to Warmers not deniers. If you do not accept the theory of man-made Global Warming then you will not receive any federal grant money.
But when the Warmers try to pin every weather event – drought, flooding, hurricanes, forest fires, snow storms, freezing temperatures, hot summers, typhoons, tsunamis, tornadoes etc – on man-made Global Warming – er, Climate Change – consider this: Any theory that covers everything, covers nothing! – The Lexington Libertarian
Here is an example of a Warmist in full blown superiority mode:
The most pressing world issue we face today according both to common sense and our own president is climate change. It’s been more than a decade since Al Gore’s controversial documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” brought global warming to the forefront of scientific, political and social commentary. The jury is in; global warming, climate change, call it what you will, is fact. To argue otherwise anymore is an exercise in rhetoric, not rationality or reality. – Harrison Finzel
A foregone conclusion is, “A result that is obvious to everyone even before it happens.” Who cares about data, evidence, or thoughtful analysis? Saddam Hussein winning reelection in 2002 was a foregone conclusion. We were told that with 100 percent turnout, he won the election 11 million to zero. Actually counting the voters or votes is unnecessary with such a foregone conclusion.
Global warming is another example of a foregone conclusion. Whatever the weather of the day, the cause is global warming. Seventy inches of snow recently fell in Buffalo. Slate concluded that this is further evidence of global warming. If it was 75 degrees and sunny that week, is there any doubt that Slate would reach the same conclusion? The only difference being that at least warm temperatures and global warming could have a logical connection.
Lake effect snow in Buffalo is not unusual. Cold arctic air picks up moisture over the Great Lakes and deposits it over land. The only thing unusual about the recent snow is its severity. Buffalo residents described it “as the worst in memory.” The Washington Post however already reached its foregone conclusion that we should not believe our own eyes; “Dear snow-trolls: Winter weather does not refute global warming.” Seems that any weather, warm or cold, wet or dry, storms or lack of, points to the foregone conclusion of global warming, just as every single person in Iraq made it to the polls on election day and voted to reelect Saddam.
Blame it on the polar vortex, according to climate scientists. Warming oceans and melting ice are weakening the vortex, causing colder, snowier winters. Huh? This year has given us, “The earliest ice on some of the Great Lakes in at least 40 years.” Arctic ice is decreasing as Antarctic ice is increasing, meaning a shift, not a net loss. How does one reasonably draw conclusions from conflicting and contradictory data? Unless the conclusions are foregone and data is simply window dressing.
Not just Ferguson, but also the Arab Spring riots. The Center for American Progress found a link between global warming and the Arab Spring. They believe, “The consequences of climate change are stressors that can ignite a volatile mix of underlying causes that erupt into revolution.” Never mind that a, “toothless and feckless foreign policy” led to much of the Middle East tumult. Instead it was a foregone conclusion that global warming was responsible.
What about Putin’s aggression in Ukraine? Could climate change be behind this too? Blogger John Casey makes this case, although not in the usual way. He believes that Putin’s moves, “May also be the first steps the Russians are taking to prepare for the coming cold!”
Silly Albert Einstein looked to physics and quantum mechanics in his quest to create a unified field theory. He should instead have used global warming as the theory explaining all the forces in nature. Climatistas have done just that. With a foregone conclusion that the planet is warming and human activity is the cause, all weather, hot, cold, or just right, bolsters this foregone conclusion. Just like in Iraq where Saddam received every single vote, regardless of who voted and how they marked their ballots.
