"Al Roker has this to say to all the haters out there: The polar vortex is real, and anyone who doesn't believe that can "stuff it."
Roker got the last word on the "polar vortex" controversy Wednesday morning when he pulled out an old college textbook from 1959 that contained a term ID for the weather condition.
His comments were aimed at those, like conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh, who claim that the polar vortex is a made-up term and a "left-wing media conspiracy."
"Let me tell you something," he said on "Today." "We've never used the phrase 'global warming' or 'climate change' in conjunction with this... Okay?! So for all the doubters out there, STUFF IT."
Al Roker lacks a college degree and has no formal education in meteorology or climatology...

Roker is just a talking head...

Not surprised that someone belonging to a party that has replaced the term "utilization management" with "death panels" would believe that "Polar Vortex" is a newly coined word.
You just can't help exposing your ignorance on a regular basis.
Who said that "Polar Vortex" is a newly coined word?

Please explain your confusion.

Liberals don't know where to draw the line between compassion and gullibility. But gullibility is how they get votes and stay in power. Plain and simple.
Doing unto the least of these is a charge given to all of us. The liberals keep throwing the federal government in the mix to do what we're supposed to do ourselves.
The thing that always gets lost on them is there will always be a food stamp program and welfare aid. But creating un-incentives to work to support oneself and be able to stand on one's own two feet is their idea of compassion.
now that's funny! the religious cult member that worships a proven false idol talking about gullibility...

i think the irony meter just disintegrated...

Here you go:
https://www.cai.org/bible-studies/vatican-bil...
"Vatican financial operations can trespass into semi-illegality at times because of their diversity and secrecy. Scandal erupted in the eighties to the astonishment of millions of Catholics and the chagrin of many who genuinely thought the Vatican was engaged only in charitable operations.
By and large, however, its investments are well looked after by those financial experts whose experience is second to none! The Vatican's traditional financial dealers are a mostly non-Catholic fraternity of Protestants, agnostics, non-Christians, Jews and even atheists.
Its traditional financial transactions have been handled for years by the great banking concerns of J. P. Morgan in New York (mostly for American investments), Hambros of London for British investments, and the Swiss Credit Bank of Zurich for European investments - without mentioning the Vatican's own concerns such as Banco di Roma, Banco Commerciale, Banco Santo Spirito.
Now, it must never be forgotten that all the above form only the "liquid" financial assets of the Holy See......
"The claim that such property is not owned by the Catholic Church is like saying that a Communist dictatorship does not own anything because all the property is owned by the people.
When the Catholic Church sells a piece of land or buys one, the bishop as a rule signs the deed, which means his See becomes the owner or receives the money. Whether the transaction is localised to the diocese, or deputised from the national hierarchy or from the Vatican, is basically irrelevant since ultimately it concerns the property of the Catholic Church."
what does any of this have to do with the IRS???...

<quoted text>IPCC Lead Author Says Climate Models Are Failing
July 13, 2013
JAMES M. TAYLOR, J.D.
James M. Taylor is managing editor of Environment & Climate News, a national monthly...
United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change lead author Hans von Storch told Der Spiegel that climate models are having a difficult time replicating the lack of global warming during the past 15 years.
“So far, no one has been able to provide a compelling answer to why climate change seems to be taking a break," said Storch.
Storch said the models say the planet should be warming much more than it has.
"According to most climate models, we should have seen temperatures rise by around 0.25 degrees Celsius (0.45 degrees Fahrenheit) over the past 10 years. That hasn't happened. In fact, the increase over the last 15 years was just 0.06 degrees Celsius (0.11 degrees Fahrenheit)-- a value very close to zero," Storch told Der Spiegel. "This is a serious scientific problem that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will have to confront when it presents its next Assessment Report late next year.
98 Percent of Models Wrong
IPCC may have to revise its climate models to reflect real-world climate conditions, Storch noted.
"At my institute, we analyzed how often such a 15-year stagnation in global warming occurred in the simulations. The answer was: in under 2 percent of all the times we ran the simulation. In other words, over 98 percent of forecasts show CO2 emissions as high as we have had in recent years leading to more of a temperature increase," Storch told the magazine.
"If things continue as they have been, in five years, at the latest, we will need to acknowledge that something is fundamentally wrong with our climate models. A 20-year pause in global warming does not occur in a single modeled scenario. But even today, we are finding it very difficult to reconcile actual temperature trends with our expectations," he explained.
Rewards of Scientific Method
“Hans von Storch is simply doing what all real scientists do: examine the most recently available data and use it to guide your path to conclusions,” meteorologist Anthony Watts, proprietor of the popular WattsUpWithThat.com climate science website, told Environment & Climate News.
“The nature of science is to go where the data tells you to go, not to go where you believe you should, and that is what von Storch is doing as a scientist,” Watts explained.“Meanwhile, those who go in the direction they believe they should go—or are told to go—are continuing on like lemmings marching to the sea, blissfully unaware that the road of science has a U-turn sign up ahead. The belief-system pileup at the U-turn will be something to behold.”
“The latest admission regarding the failure of IPCC's climate models in accounting for the stasis in the global temperature trend for the past 15 years is really no surprise,” Cambridge, Massachusetts climate scientist Willie Soon said.“It is merely professor Hans von Storch reporting the scientific evidence in an honest manner. The IPCC climate models have a long history of predicting too much warming, and Storch’s observations show that is still the case.
“There is a strong disconnect between carbon dioxide emissions and global temperatures. The evidence for this is every day becoming more difficult to deny,” Soon added.
Again, the IPCC is the UN's brainchild since 1990.

After 250 scientists from the U.S. disputed their data, another agency was created to look into it, and their report didn't shine too favorably on the IPCC's "transparency" and minimizing of errors".

But the IPCC is still the liberal propaganda expert on global warming.

"In a month it will be at the used bookstore for a dollar like most of these books. Who buys them? They throw out a few salacious lines of red meat for the rightwing idiots to entice them to buy it. Save your money dummies."

Now tell us what was asked. "a few salacious lines?" Why is it ok for Obama to repeatedly lie and distort in his two autobiographies? The White House didn't have to deny that he lied. They counted on the media to ignore and it as usual. Imagine if it had been Bush or Romney that wrote lie after lie. It would be front page and similar to when Sarah Palin's emails were scrutinized, the lies would have been dissected and front page news.

But the proof of Obama's willingness to tell a lie — even one about his late mother — about his past in order to score political points has already been well established.

Most Americans don’t care about the president’s old girlfriends or place much importance about the proper sequence of events in his life. Nor should they.

But the myth he wove about Ann Dunham’s death is the sort of damning falsehood for which he still deserves to be held accountable.

That he won’t be is a much bigger story than anything uncovered by Maraniss. You wonder if someday historians will be writing about the main stream media's complicity in electing Obama, downplaying his shady, unvetted past and under-reporting his failures as president.

You may say I am a liberal but I'm actually a moderate
And I'm not the only one

And Homer will be president in 2017...
