Driven by China and India, global Co2
to reach record high next year: study

Hindustan Times [New Delhi, India], by Samar Halarnkar

Bangalore - Driven by China and India and seemingly unaffected by an economic slowdown, global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will reach a record high in 2012, according to new figures made public on Sunday. Emissions from the burning of fossil fuels - mainly the use of coal to generate electricity - will rise to a record 35.6 billion tonnes, a 58% rise above 1990 levels, said a study released by the Global Carbon Project, a partnership of scientists established in 2001 to create a knowledge base about global warming. The latest warning - in a slew of dire reports since November

India and China are biggest polluters? Quick - punish all industries in the USA and let re-locate over there!

The answer is obvious. North America and Europe must reduce their production by 90%. That way the world will survive yet another environmental Armageddon

Notice how they do not say the global temperature has actually gone up, or that the raise in CO2 is actually attributable to human activity. They only refer to dire warnings.
The global temperature has not risen in the past 15 years, and human activity accounts for only about 4% of the CO2 in the atmosphere.

So we not only need to fund millions of windmills here but another several million for India and China. This will keep factories buzzing. It would be a lot cheaper just to learn to live with climate change.

As we´ve seen with Sandy,this country is totally unprepared to deal with disasters. Our enemies can see that and know where to target to knock our survivability out.We´re supposed to kneel and bow to the central planners who can´t even get food or housing to disaster victims.

Instead of doing a better job on preparedness we´ll spend billions developing car batteries that explode.

China and India won´t even let us take part in their new trade organization, so the likelihood of those countries agreeing to lower their carbon omissions on our urgings is zero.

If Western environmentalists believe it´s critical to reduce globabl carbon emissions, they´ll have to take things into their own hands, maybe by volunteering to stop breathing for a few hours each day.

of course they don´t talk about all the volcano´s that have erupted this year and spewed into the atmosphere ton´s of sulfuric acid, CO2, ash and a whole host of other chemicals. each time an volcano goes off equals about 100 years of mans industrial revolution pollution. Guess don´t let the facts get in the way of a political agenda

They use some really big numbers. The 35 Billion Tons equals an additional 2 parts per million in the atmosphere. That means you have 10,000 rolls of pennies and you´re adding just 1 penny to the mix.

You know, any of these numbers don´t take into account the fact that the U.S. EATS CO2. The calculations just spew the estimated CO2 output from our industrial activity. We´re one of the most forested nations in the world and just about the most sparsely populated. And we have thriving agriculture.

China meanwhile has to import wood to make chopsticks.

Still this is a good fact to keep handy, when the discussion turns to CO2.

I don´t think CO2 levels have zoot to do with global temperature, even a tiny bit does all that a bunch can do, and water vapor is the much, much bigger deal anyway so unless you´re going to put all the oceans in a baggy, that´s that.

Still, it might be a good thing to keep an eye on CO2 levels, at some point it does become a problem for mammals who like to breathe, no matter how happy it makes plants.

I´ve seen satellite pictures that have massive coal smoke swinging from China across the Pacific and up over British Columbia and Alaska. They said it could cause more rain and snow there. (!!)

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

Grandma Hillary Is a
Double-Edged Sword in 2016
Time Magazine, by Haley Sweetland Edwards    Original Article

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’
New York Daily News, by Leslie Larson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:32:07 PM     Post Reply
Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst
since 2008, as GOP brand surges

Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:11:25 PM     Post Reply
A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

Colorado Democrats
abandon divisive abortion bill

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place. Day and his accountant have been appealing the penalty for nearly a year which is due on April 15.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will. (Snip) For a radical progressive who once harbored negative stereotypes about folks on the right, it was a turning point

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
