Learn a little something.

GENEVA — There's a strong chance an El Nino weather event will reappear before the end of the year and shake up climate patterns worldwide, the U.N. weather agency said Thursday.

The El Nino, a flow of unusually warm surface waters from the Pacific Ocean toward and along the western coast of South America, changes rain and temperature patterns around the world and usually raises global temperatures.

An update Thursday from the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization puts the odds of El Nino at 60 percent between June and August, rising to 75-80 percent between October and December. It said the expected warming would come on top of the effects of man-made global warming.

It doesn't matter if it's the UN , FIFA, the Iraqi government or even the US congress corruption is everywhere but in life you deal with the cards you get not the ones you wish for.
The only thing to prevent corruption is red tape but remember Reagan said we don't want any red tape it slows down business. That is an open door for corruption to move right in.

But you deniers want to cherry pick issues rather than look at the big picture which all tells the same story and it's not corrupt.

We have numerous issues slick. Mainly our issues come from libtard azz hats. The big picture? You libtards want to pass all this feel good horse manure but do not have a clue how to do it,or how to pay for it. First we have to pass the bill to know what's in the bill. That's worked out real well so far.LMAO
For your common sense abilities you libtards should start with finger paints instead of brushes. The big picture. That's really funny.

Many years ago, sleepy, sleazy, slimy, steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars were so enamored with fossil fuel power, they crowed that renewables would be hard set to produce 1% of grid. Renewables soared past 1%. Of course, sleepy, sleazy, slimy, steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars backed-up, retrenched & said renewables couldn't ever produce base power. Renewables powered up further & in some areas, are a healthy percentage of base power, altho they were never toted as base power. Still, sleepy, sleazy, slimy, steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars think they win victories, still toeing the baseline.
Meanwhile, wind turbines are well taller than the Space Needle, ever more efficient, & wringing fantastic quantities of electricity out of wind. & now there is the wonderful possibilities that huge off-shore wind farms may tap enough energy from hurricanes & typhoons as to disrupt the storm systems......... spectacular!!!!!!! Of course, sleepy, sleazy, slimy, steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars have never marveled that such a possibility exists.
Sorry... the study trumps your bullshyt.

Climate change nonsensus: Only ~47% of Australian geoscientists endorse strong action to reduce fossil fuel emissions
From a comment at The Guardian [surprised they didn't delete it]:

Alan Mcintire commented on The claim of a 97% consensus on global warming does not stand up.

07 Jun 2014

From the June 2013 issue of "The Australian Geologist",

http://www.gsa.org.au/pdfdocuments/TAG%27s/TA...

from page 12, 53% of the members of the Geological Society of Australia
DISAGREED with the statement endorsing strong action to reduce fossil fuel emissions. OBVIOUSLY there's no 97% consensus.

We don't call our political opponents that name out of respect for history and the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. There's never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation, that's how you can know it's a hoax and man made catastrophic climate disruption is pseudoscience.

LONDON (Reuters)- Global economic output could rise by as much as an additional $2.6 trillion (£1.53 trillion) a year, or 2.2 percent, by 2030 if government policies improve energy efficiency, waste management and public transport, according to a World Bank report released on Tuesday.If financing and technology investment increased, global GDP could grow by an additional $2.6 trillion, or 2.2 percent, a year by 2030, the World Bank said. Climate policies could also avert at least 94,000 premature deaths a year from pollution-related diseases by 2030, improve crop productivity and prevent around 8.5 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases being emitted - the same as taking around 2 billion cars off the road.
Notice how they change the argument from climate to economics? The climate is cooling now, nobody is afraid of man made climate change when our politicians are discussing taking away our cars, vans and light trucks with higher energy taxes; the problem is our politicians can't or don't want to grow the economy so why would we believe they can manage the climate? If a climate tax can solve global warming, then our climate wasn't broken in the first place.

Those geologists work to produce products consumers will buy, as opposed to climatologists who produce nothing more realistic than computer models. Still, plenty of speculators want to drive up energy and fuel prices to protect their colleagues and employers; think billionaire Tom Steyer stopping the XXL pipeline to help his billionaire railroad tycoon friends like Warren Buffet or Obama and his crony pal Jeffrey Immelt at GE.
