Global Warming Activists Stumped by New Claims that Earth Is Actually Cooling
Posted by TNO Staff— on September 8, 20130
A new leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—a body which was the source of the original “global warming” claims—has said that new evidence shows that the earth is actually cooling down rather than heating up.
The new report not only directly contradicts all the previous reports, but also makes a mockery of the huge taxes and “carbon footprint” industry which sprang up around the “global warming” scare of the last few years.
According to the report, there has been a 60 percent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, the equivalent of almost a million square miles.
In a rebound from 2012&#8242;s record low, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
The report has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after it was predicted that the Arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
The original predictions led to billions being invested in green measures to combat the effects of climate change.
The change in the predictions has led to UN’s climate change’s body holding a crisis meeting, and the IPCC was due to report on the situation in October. A pre-summit meeting will be held later this month.
But leaked documents show that governments who fund the IPCC are demanding 1,500 changes to the Fifth Assessment Report—a three-volume study issued every six or seven years—as they claim its current draft does not properly explain the pause.
The extent to which temperatures will rise with carbon dioxide levels, as well as how much of the warming over the past 150 year, a total of 0.8C, is down to human greenhouse gas emissions, are key issues.
The IPCC says it is “95 percent confident” that global warming has been caused by humans—up from 90 percent in 2007—according to the draft report.
However, US climate expert Professor Judith Curry has questioned how this can be true as that rather than increasing in confidence,“uncertainty is getting bigger” within the academic community.
Long-term cycles in ocean temperature, she said, suggest the world may be approaching a period similar to that from 1965 to 1975, when there was a clear cooling trend.
At the time some scientists forecast an imminent ice age.

Obama could learn from Reagan:

Thanks to the 1981 act, 20 million new jobs were created. Inflation dropped from 13.5% in 1980 to 4.1% by 1988 and unemployment fell from 7.6% to 5.5%.

The net worth of families earning between $20,000 and $50,000 annually grew by 27% at the same time the real gross national product jumped by 26%. The prime interest rate was slashed from 21.5% in January 1981 to 10% in August 1988.

The amount of individual tax revenues rose from $244 billion in 1980 to $446 billion in 1989. Total tax revenues jumped grew by almost 100%, rising by 99.4% during the 1980s producing 92 months of healthy economic growth - the longest period of peacetime in the post WWII period.

Marginal tax rates were cut from a top rate of 70% to 28% while revenues to the U.S. government from all taxes nearly doubled – increasing from roughly $500 billion to an astronomical $1.1 trillion in 1990 - benefiting the Clinton administration.

What can we say about Obama's big government policies, higher taxes and excessive federal government regulations?

WHO MY BABY DADDY?

The following are all replies that Cleveland, Ohio women have written on Child Support Agency Forms in the section for listing 'father's details;' or putting it another way... Who's yo Daddy? These are genuine
excerpts from the forms!

1. Regarding the identity of the father of my twins, Makeeshia was fathered by Willie McKinley. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of Marlinda, but I believe that she was conceived on the same night.

2. I am unsure, as to the identity of the father of my child as I was being sick out of a window when taken unexpectedly from behind. I can provide you with a list of names of men that I think were at the party if this helps.

3. I do not know the name of the father of my little girl. She was conceived at a party at 3600 Quincy Ave. where I had sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so good that I fainted. If you do manage to track down the father, can you please send me his phone number? Thanks.

4. I don't know the identity of the father of my daughter. He drives a BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto in one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact BMW service stations in this area and see if he's had it replaced. That would be the daddy.

5. I have never had sex with a man. I am still a Virginian. I think that my son's conception was ejaculate stuff on a tawl and that he is an axident.

6. I cannot tell you the name of Alleshia dad as he informs me that to do so would blow his cover and that would have cat aclysmic implications for his wife. I am torn between doing right by you and right by him. Please advise.

7. I do not know who the father of my child was as they all look the same to me.

8. Tyrone Lairston is the father of child A. If you do catch up with him, can you ask him what he did with my Otis Redding CDs? Child B who was also borned at the same time ... well, I don't have clue.

9. From the dates it seems that my daughter was conceived at the Art Museum; it really was in the room with the statues of them peoples with they legs cut off.

10. So much about that night is a blur. The only thing that I remember for sure is Delia Smith did a program about eggs earlier in the evening. If I had stayed in and watched more TV rather than going to the party at 8956 Hough Ave., mine might have remained unfertilized.

And my personal favorite...

11. I am unsure as to the id entity of the father of my baby, after all, like when you eat a can of beans you can't be sure which one made you fart.

When Reagan took office, unemployment was 7.7%. It declined steadily during his eight year term and was 5.5% when he left office. While Obama talks vaguely about saving jobs while unemployment remains in the high 7% range - not even including those who stopped looking - Reagan created nearly 20 million jobs.

Under Reagan, productivity grew at a 1.5 percent annual rate, This was lower than in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s but much higher than in the post-Reagan years. Under Clinton, productivity has increased at an annual rate of just 0.3 percent per year--the worst presidential performance since that of Herbert Hoover.

It is an unfortunate human trait to look for some kind of moral wrong or legal malfeasance, in specific events to incite general public outrage either to benefit someone or to cast aspersion on someone else. Shortly after Republicans won a House majority in the 2010 midterm elections a corrupt Republican, Darrell Issa, promised his only job as chairman of the House Oversight Committee was to have “seven hearings a week, times 40 weeks” investigating the Obama Administration when the 112th Congress began. Issa was desperate to find a scandal to take down President Obama and has investigated everything from the 2009 federal stimulus program to fabricating President Obama’s part in the scandalous Republican government shutdown two months ago.

Issa has wasted taxpayer time and money for three years looking for Obama Administration scandals he subsequently never found, including the tragic deaths of 4 American diplomats in Benghazi Libya on September 11 2012. Issa’s scandalous investigations aside, it was revealed yesterday that an extensive investigation into the attack on the diplomatic outpost that claimed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three diplomats’ lives found no involvement of al-Qaeda or other international terrorists groups whatsoever like Republicans have claimed for over a year. Instead, the attack was precipitated by, as first reported, by extremist Christians in the United States.

....For the past year-and-a-half Republicans led a phony search for a Benghazi scandal wasting taxpayer time and money, but why did criminal Issa never investigate the Christian extremists for making, promoting, and releasing the video that clearly fueled the attacks that killed four American diplomats? If the criminal really wanted to get to the bottom of who was responsible for the attacks he would have begun immediate investigations into American Christians and not President Obama.

Issa can hardly claim Christian extremists were innocent in provoking the attacks because American non-profit Media for Christ obtained film permits to shoot the movie in August 2011, and the project was promoted by Morris Sadek by email and on the blog of the National American Coptic Assembly. By early September, the film was dubbed into Arabic and broadcast on September 9 on Al-Nas, an Egyptian television station; at this point it is prescient to reiterate the video “had prompted protests for hours the day before (the Benghazi attack) at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.” The extremist Christian pastor Terry Jones, known for a Quran-burning controversy that led to riots around the world and endangered American soldiers knew of the video’s existence prior to the Benghazi attacks and promoted it by announcing his plan to show the 13-minute trailer at his church on September 11, 2012. It is incomprehensible that the video did not incite protestors to attack the diplomatic outpost due to “anger at a U.S.-made video denigrating Islam,” or that extremist Christians are not culpable for the violence in Benghazi.

The New York Times Turns Republican Benghazi Hoax Inside Out

The New York Times laid down the smack on Benghazi scandal enthusiasts Saturday by making some very bold claims of its own. The Times says that “Benghazi was not infiltrated by Al Qaeda,” that “Anger at the video motivated the initial attack,” and that “The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi.”

The Times explained that “Fifteen months after Mr. Stevens’s death, the question of responsibility remains a searing issue in Washington, framed by two contradictory story lines”:

As usual, things were not so clear cut. A book previously reviewed here, The Benghazi Hoax, has detailed how the right wing engineered a scandal out of whole cloth by misusing and fabricating “evidence.” It has also become clear that the media, after first questioning the Republican claims, later became complicit in their spread and perpetuation.

This new piece by the Times is sure to be as unwelcome. FoxNews immediately “debunked” the Times’ claims, calling “liar liar” by repeating all the lies they’ve already told (of course, FoxNews was the key player in the hoax and have the most need to sustain it now). The Blaze, not surprisingly, calls these claims by the Times “shocking”– particularly use by the Times of the word “spontaneous,” a word that rips the entire Republican hoax to shreds.

Republican leaders are insistent that this was an al Qaeda assault. It had to be in order for the Obama administration to be shown guilty (never mind that al Qaeda killed 3,000 Americans without making Republican George W. Bush guilty).

Nothing The New York Times says will influence the right wing scandal machine in the least (as the FoxNews coverage attests). All the facts in the world won’t do that in a party that cites the Bible without reading it first. Facts are their worst enemy, emotion – angry, fearful emotion – their biggest friend. They will continue to insist on their version of events because it is the version – fact-free as it is – most congenial to their agenda.
