Persistent Lying Bastards.

Here we go again. We supposedly hit a CATASTROPHIC level of (GASP SHRIEK) CO2 levels. And, WHAT, exactly, happened?

Gold star for you if you said NOTHING. From The Daily Caller.com

 

Greenhouse gas levels reach record highs, nothing happens.

What the lying bastards see.

 

Here is REALITY. Damn near a MILLION square mile increase in ice coverage THIS YEAR ALONE.

Scientists have warned that carbon dioxide and methane levels reached record  highs in 2012, reports the World Meteorological Organization.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were 141 percent above  pre-industrial levels last year.

“As a result of this (increase in greenhouse gases), our climate is changing,  our weather is more extreme, ice sheets and glaciers are melting and sea levels  are rising,” said WMO secretary-general Michael  Jarraud.

Yet the evidence suggests that weather has not gotten more extreme and that  sea levels rises have been below United Nations estimates. Furthermore, arctic  sea ice reached record levels this year despite much higher greenhouse gas  concentrations.

Most importantly, according to skeptical scientists, global temperatures have  not risen since 1998 despite findings that global greenhouse gas emissions 35.6  billion metric tons in in 2012 — a record high.

According to research from scientist Roger Pielke of the University of Colorado, hurricanes have not  increased in frequency, intensity or normalized damage in the U.S. since 1900.  Similarly, Tornadoes and tropical cyclones have also not become more intense or  frequent since 1950 and 1970, respectfully.

U.S. floods have not increased in frequency or intensity since 1950,  according to Pielke, and droughts have become shorter, less frequent, and  smaller over the last century. Globally, floods have changed very little in the  last 60 years.

“It is misleading and just plain incorrect to claim that disasters associated  with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have increased on climate  timescales either in the United States or globally,” Pielke said in his  testimony before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

On a similar note, Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, the “skeptical environmentalist,” writes: “Historical analysis of wildfires  around the world shows that since 1950 their numbers have decreased globally by  15%… The world has not seen a general increase in drought. A study published in  Nature in November shows globally that ‘there has been little change in drought  over the past 60 years.’”

The world panicked when failed presidential candidate and environmentalist Al  Gore said that the “entire north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 years.” He  predicted this in December 2008.

However, reports this year indicate that Arctic sea  ice coverage was 29 percent greater in September of this year compared to the  same time last year — with ice covering 533,000 square miles of ocean more than  last year.

The south pole has also fared well, despite rising greenhouse  gas emissions. Antarctic sea ice hit a 35-year record high in September —  covering nearly 20 million square kilometers of ocean with ice. The previous sea  ice coverage record was in 2012, meaning there have been two straight record  high years.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data show the sea levels only rose 1.1 to 1.3 millimeters per year from 2005 to 2012. This  is actually below the rate of sea level rise from 1954 to 2003.

UN officials hope to use record high greenhouse gas levels and claims of  extreme weather to compel the international community to agree to a stronger  climate agreement at the next round of major climate negotiations in 2015.

Delegates are already headed to Warsaw, Poland for another round of climate  negotiations set for next week, but nothing substantive is expected to come out  of this round of talks.

“As we head towards Warsaw for the latest round of climate negotiations,  there is a real need for increased ambition by all countries: ambition which can  take countries further and faster towards bridging the emissions gap and a  sustainable future for all,” said Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of  the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

“However, increased national ambition will not be enough to meet the  scientific realities of climate change, which is one reason why a universal new  agreement — able to catalyze international cooperation — is urgently needed by  2015,” she added.

A recent UN report found that global temperatures could  rise by as much as 8.64 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions  aren’t cut. However, global temperatures have been flat since 1998, and some  scientists have even been going back to the theory that the earth was  cooling.

“Attention in the public debate seems to be moving away from the 15-17 year  ‘pause’ to the cooling since 2002,” writes Dr. Judith Curry, the chair of the  School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology.

“There is a very good correlation of sunspots and climate,” writes Professor Cliff Ollier of the School of Earth and  Environmental Studies at the University of Western Australia. “Solar cycles  provide a basis for prediction. Solar Cycle 24 has started and we can expect  serious cooling. Many think that political decisions about climate are based on  scientific predictions but what politicians get are projections based on  computer models.”

All the facts, charts, observations, apparently mean NOTHING to the shitheads gathering in Warsaw next week to CONTINUE the charade.

WE know it’s bullshit, THEY know it’s bullshit. I guess the lure of “easy money”, like that of selling illegal street drugs, is just too much to resist for these liars.

I grow weary of harping on these frauds, BUT, I will continue to do so.

  1. “Don’t confuse me with facts ~! My “mind” is already made up~!”

    Sounds about right.

  2. Kathy says:

    Is anyone dying because of these high levels of methane & carbon dioxide? No. Is anybody even getting sick from it? No. So stop wasting time and money on it and move on to a real problem.

    • tannngl says:

      Actually, many have died in Russia with the horribly cold temps during the winters there for a few years. The reports are of colder than usual temps there.

      But when they catch on that the world is cooling…
      then we will have to decrease those carbon footprints

    • Clyde says:

      That’s the WORST part of this, Kathy. Not ONE SINGLE GODDAMN DEATH can be attributed to “global warming”, yet these assholes are telling us mankind is going to all die BECAUSE of it. Dumb asses aren’t smart enough to know EVERYONE on the orb IS GOING TO DIE at some point. F#$%&*g fools piss me off.

  3. CW says:

    Let’s not bicker and argue over whether the earth is heating or cooling. Just hand over your money and go live in a hut (unless your an elitist lib, then you can keep your jet-set lifestyle so long as you keep lecturing to the plebes).

  4. Hardnox says:

    Good post. Harp away. Shining daylight on this worldwide fraud is important.

  5. Hardnox says:

    Btw, I’m looking forward to hearing what the GW asshats have to say come spring after they experienced this coming winter which is forecast to be a cold one.

    • Clyde says:

      The stupid bastards WILL blame it on man-made global warming. Christ, you CAN teach a one-trick pony MORE than one trick. Unlike THESE assholes.

  6. WTXGunRunner says:

    Clyde, continue on with your Crusade. It certainly IS a worthy cause. These Idiots haven’t changed their story in decades. Sadly, the American populace had dumbed itself down enough to where now, it is beginning to make sense to these people. You know the people I’m talking about, the ones that demand a trophy for every child and the like. Saddens me to NO end. Great piece!

    • Clyde says:

      Thanks, WTX. Just seems like every day, we see these stories about NO “change”, and here come the Gorons, with thumbs in their ears, going NAHNAHANANH I CAN’T HEAR YOU in complete denial of facts. Pisses me off.

    clyde,

    It’s hard not to carp on these lunatics when you know they are lying. This is just a way to get our nation to give up it’s natural resources to hand them over to the UN so they can get rich for themselves. It’s all a plot to destroy us, not any other nation. Rape of our country is what I read today under the UN. And that is exactly what it is.
