So she spent the afternoon reading these articles about Global Warming.

The United States is in the grip of frigid winter weather but the New England Journal of Medicine is warning this month that the World Health Organization’s (WHO) 2014 prediction of 250,000 deaths each year between 2030 and 2050 from global warming may underestimate the threat.

WHO said deaths would be contributed to, among other things, malnutrition, heat stress and malaria. Read MORE.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘The World Is Going to End in Like 12 Years if We Don’t Address Climate Change’

by Matthew Boyle:

Devout socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says that the world will stop spinning in a dozen years if “climate change” is left unchecked. Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a new plan in Congress she calls her “Green New Deal” to confront climate matters.

“I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is–your biggest issue is ‘how are we going to pay for it?’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war–this is our World War II.” Read MORE.

At least 1,500 private jets are expected to descend on Davos and nearby airports in Switzerland this week as the international financial and political elite gathers to talk about global climate challenges.

That would be up from the more than 1,300 aircraft movements seen at last year’s forum, despite climate change registering as the top risk factor identified for the global economy in a survey of World Economic Forum (WEF) movers and shakers last week. Read MORE.

 

FLASHBACK: Exactly One Decade Ago Today Al Gore Prophesied The North Pole Would Be Iceless

by Wes Walker:

Al Gore is basically the Bernie Madoff of Environmental Science … and he’s made himself a tidy sum while doing it.

Al Gore has made some very — Bold — predictions in his day. Predictions that haven’t exactly worked out the way he said they would.

The 2008 video has been deleted (surprise, surprise) but he said it again in Copenhagen in 2009: MORE.

One Decade Ago Today Al Gore Prophesied The North Pole Would Be Iceless

by Wes Walker

Al Gore is basically the Bernie Madoff of Environmental Science … and he’s made himself a tidy sum while doing it.

Al Gore has made some very — Bold — predictions in his day. Predictions that haven’t exactly worked out the way he said they would.

The 2008 video has been deleted (surprise, surprise) but he said it again in Copenhagen in 2009:

 

He didn’t just repeat it there, he doubled down. The climate change crowd still hails him as a hero for helping to mainstream his pet political issue. And they get really prickly if you start poking around at any of their sacred cows.

Headlines get packed with trendy buzzwords like ‘settled science’, ‘scientific consensus’, or ‘climate change deniers’. You can’t tackle the Al Gore issue without addressing those too, so let’s deal with that first.

None of those phrases are actually “science”. They’re marketing and framing of an issue. They have nothing to do with science itself. A historical example can help show what we mean.

Back in the 1980s there was a ‘HUGE’ news story about a breakthrough discovery. Scientists had discovered “Cold fusion” — or so they claimed. There was only one problem — their model turned out to be unrepeatable and was eventually proven to be bogus.

That’s the cool thing about true science. Either it is true, or it is false. If it is false, all the pretty words in the world cannot force it to be true.

Which takes us back to Al Gore. First, he lose(sic) a court battle over ‘Nine Critical Errors’ he made in his movie ironically named: “Inconvenient Truth”.

In September, he spouted propaganda that got him publicly slapped down by a PHD grounded in actual facts: Read the rest of this article at clashdaily.com.

RIP: Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Dies – Called Global Warming a ‘Hoax’

 

Coleman: ‘When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.’

‘The current bad science is all based on a theory that the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the exhaust of the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in “the greenhouse effect” causing temperatures to skyrocket uncontrollably. This theory has failed to verify and is obviously dead wrong. But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers.’ climatedepot.com

Delingpole: Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ – Fact-Checked…

Meteorologist Roy Spencer has written a book which fact-checks Al Gore’s latest climate-disaster-porn movie An Inconvenient Sequel.

Spoiler alert: Gore’s scaremongering ‘facts’ are all inconveniently untrue.

Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, begins his book An Inconvenient Deception kindly, by noting that he much prefers the new movie to its 2006 Oscar-winning prequel An Inconvenient Truth.

It was much less of a PowerPoint presentation and more of a human interest story. It follows Gore over the years as he tries to convince fellow politicians, foreign heads of state, and the public that the climate crisis is real. While some have considered Gore’s role in the movie to be too self-indulgent, I thought it showed some humanity in someone many people over the years have considered too “stiff”.

But there the praise ends. When Spencer saw the movie, he was one of only three viewers in a 750-seat theater – and one of these people walked out half way through. This local reaction is borne out by the movie’s dismal reception at the box office. No one is going to see Al Gore’s terrible new movie. And – scientifically speaking, at least – they’re really not missing much.

Here are some of Al Gore’s dubious claims rebutted.

Greenland Melting

Gore is shown visiting cryospheric expert Konrad Steffen.

“Surface melting is shown with dramatic aerial video. Rivers of meltwater form and plunge down into huge holes in the ice sheet called “moulins”.”

But:

“What isn’t mentioned is that this happens every summer, naturally.”

In fact this is a good example of Gore’s favorite cheat: show dramatic footage of a natural event – eg ice melting rapidly – and then leave the viewer to infer that this is another disastrous and unprecedented consequence of man-made climate change. It spares him the risk of telling flat out lies which might get fact-checked later. The viewer’s imagination does all Gore’s dirty work…

Meanwhile, in the real world, remember, Greenland recently recorded its coldest temperature ever measured in July for the Northern Hemisphere.

Flooding in Miami

Gore wants you to believe that this is caused by climate change. After all, in his previous movie he predicted sea level rises of 20 feet.

Sadly in the real world sea level has continued to rise at the same rate as for the last 150 years – about an inch per decade.

Miami has always been beset by tidal flooding – so called “king tides”. But the other big problem is that its land has been sinking at a rate of around an inch per decade (3mm a year). Neither this, nor the sea level rise, has anything to do with climate change.

She’s Created an Environmentalist Monster

09/14/2015:  Today Rush Limbaugh talked about a mother sending her son off to college: “Bidding my college-bound son good riddance. I have raised a sweet, thoughtful, environmentally conscious monster—and soon I will be free.”

By Ronnie Cohen

My son, Cory, will leave our Northern California home to start college back East in the fall, prompting other mothers to offer condolences about my soon-to-be-empty nest. Though they expect me to break into tears, my overriding emotion when my youngest departs will be relief. I will finally be freed from the constant scrutiny of the ever-vigilant eco-warrior I raised.

I can do nothing right in my teenage son’s eyes. He grills me about the distance traveled of each piece of fruit and every vegetable I purchase. He interrogates me about the provenance of all the meat, poultry, and fish I serve. He questions my every move—from how I choose a car (why not electric?) and a couch (why synthetic fill?) to how I tend the garden (why waste water on flowers?)—an unremitting interrogation of my impact on our desecrated environment. While other parents hide alcohol and pharmaceuticals from their teens, I hide plastic containers and paper towels. Continue reading at psmag.com.
