MIT to Obama: Only 4 years
left to stop global warming

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2013 10:21:23 AM

In a bruising open letter to President Obama, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is urging the administration to give up its bungled, politically-driven green energy program to focus exclusively on new taxes and industries aimed at fixing global warming. "You have the power and the opportunity to lay the groundwork for a new clean-energy policy that will help us avoid the worst consequences of climate change," said the letter, published in the MIT Technology Review. "It is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late."

It is so disturbing that once respected institutions are prostituting themselves in supporting the fraud that is global warming. I say again, it gets to the point that you can´t believe anything you read anymore because you don´t know if it really is based on facts or it is pure propaganda.

If they would just go ahead and call it a religion they could admit they care nothing for the scientific method and quit lying about it.

The article does not say WHO wrote the letter. Obviously the SCHOOL did not write the letter, someone at the school wrote it. Maybe the ??? (I´d say janitor, but I don´t want to insult them).

I sympathize w/ Karen - MIT was once an *objective* university...

Somewhat less than amusing to see how often the ´science´ behind this scam is debunked - to be countered simply with louder ´warnings´. No ´dire warning´ issued by *any* authority - most notably the IPCC - has come to pass, nor as *any* empirically proven thesis been offered, and the trolls keep on trolling. Nothing sells like ´salvation´ - or more accurately - nothing taxes like the intangible.

Global warming? Not a snowball´s chance in Hell.

You´re more likely to see some loud-mouthed ´greenie´ sell his opinion outlet to Islamist fossil fuel hustlers...

Wait...that was last week. Next bug-a-boo?

What effect, acting alone, will the U.S. economic collapse as a result of acting on this fraud have on Climate....oh, I know, the Chinese, Indians and other nations who give this whole issue the bottom of the shoe will gain and we´ll lose, problem solved. Meanwhile, climate and nature go their happy way.

Thank you Poster #9, I didn´t know of Richard Lindzen. For those who are wondering, according to Wikpedia Richard Lindzen is a atmospheric physicist and Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "He is a well known skeptic concerning catastrophic global warming[2] and critic of what he states are political pressures on climate scientists to conform to what he has called climate alarmism."

Poppycock. Greenland was green 1000 years ago. Check out Greenland´s temperature history.

By the way, which nerd speaks for MIT? And why is it "four years". Greenland was warmer for 400 years, from 800-1200 AD.

Do they mean that Global Warming that stopped of its own accord 14 years ago with the Sun´s natural cycle? And forced them to rename the phenomenon "climate change" because there was no such thing as warming?

I´m an MIT casualty (alumnus) and clearly recall all the Commie utopia crap that passed for political insight there during the 1980s. "Eat the Rich" was popular basement graffiti, second only to "No Toad Sexing Allowed" in ubiquity around campus. (Clearly economics is one area that "MIT" is not synonymous with genius or wisdom.)

There has not been consensus on ´global warming´ among the atmospheric science professors there, much less globally. And much of what I´ve seen from the climate-change alarmists has failed to rise to the minimal standards of scientific discipline that was taught to us as freshmen there.

Not to worry...everyone open the windows and doors of your homes and turn your air conditioning to cool on full blast. We´ll have everything cooled down before sundown today!!

There, that will fix the problem, is a realistic solution, and is based on facts and physics as much as the ridiculous headline of this article!!!

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

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

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.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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
