Major report warns climate change
could raise temperatures by 10 degrees

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ben Geman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2013 1:34:10 PM

A major draft federal report concludes that climate change is already affecting U.S. residents through heat waves, droughts and other changes, and warns that temperatures could increase as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit if global carbon emissions keep soaring. The third National Climate Assessment, released Friday, said there’s “unambiguous evidence” that earth is warming, and that climate change over the past 50 years is driven primarily by human activity, especially from burning fossil fuels. “Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense, including heat waves,

Comments:
Right on cue they start laying the groundwork for cap and trade. Lamar Alexander says "I believe climate change is due to a combination of factors..." For a Republican to even utter those words is pure insanity. No wonder we are in such trouble in Washington.

It´s Whack A Mole time for climate change!
It has nothing to do with carbon emissions but there is a lot of Green in pretending- just ask Al Gorzeela!

This released just after the international scientists stood up and said there was no man made increase in temps.
They think us stupid.
The earth is warming, and has been for 21k yrs or so.
We didn´t do it and we cannot tax it away.
When it gets down to the cutting, we should eat the scientists first.

I feel confident enough to predict that by August 1, 2013 the temperature in NYC will be more than 20 degrees higher than it is today.

The national assessments have always been founded on the IPCC. Now that the IPCC has said there has been no warming despite a very significant increase in man based CO2, This federal body has to move in an protect their ability to raise taxes based on carbon emissions.

From the report: "Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense"

These are the same goobers who told us - - post-Katrina - - that glo-bull warming was making hurricanes "more frequent and/or intense" - - and yet - -

- - and yet since they made that "scientific projection" 7 1/2 years ago not a single Category 3 hurricane has struck the US mainland. Or - - to put it in their style of rhetoric - - "the longest period without a hurricane EVER!"

There´s no shaming or embarrassing these people. They lust after government grant money - - and they´ll write or do anything to get it.

There seems to be an open competition to produce the most outrageous predictions while staying within the settled parameters of ´settled science´. The winners apparently get more government grants and two weeks at Disney World.

I would assume in a lower avg.income in this economy would put pressure on people to cut spending where thee can and energy consumption has to be one of them. Nobody is intentionally wasting energy except liberals living in huge mansions and flying private jets like AlGore.

Punishing people for using a necessity of life is an absurdity.They´re already complaining about the decrease in gas tax from hybrids which should mean less CO2,if in fact that´s causing GW,which I doubt. I don´t think the CO2 compound holds together in open space but I´m no scientist.

I love the verb ´could.´ Yes, the temperature could rise 10 degrees. It could also fall 10 degrees, or it could stay the same. No matter how the temperature changes, the initial statement is still true.

A major report, it´s a major report. The National Climate Assessment and Development and Advisory Committee was formed in 2010 and is part of the Commerce Dept. The scientific basis of the report is shaky at best. The chair of the committee has his phd in biology the two co-chairs are an economist and an environmental attorney. Propaganda and The Hill loves to spread it.

While we´re speculating let´s look at the other side. Trying to solve a climate change that turns out isn´t really happening could disrupt the economy so severely that there is mass starvation, war, and only a few million humans survive along with just a few animals and virtually no forest.

23 degrees in the AZ desert today, and colder the next 3 days. A probable record. This is anecdotal, and as useless as the basis for any warming data. People who advocate global warming are fools or criminals.

To see how preposterous global warming/climate change claims have become, simply think of a malady humans want to avoid. Take tooth decay. Do a search for tooth decay and global warming. Or flatulence and global warming. Or dandruff and global warming. Or obesity and global warming. Little remains on this planet, good or bad, that has not been "linked" to cyclic changes that were here long before we were, and will be here long after we are gone.

If they did, why didn´t they come out then to contradict the "not people are causing warming report" but that lucky old sun that having episodes of higher level of raduation levels of UV and IR emissions.These warming guys are just looking for more research dollars and know they get them from you know who.

Just in time to save the NY times nine:

The New York Times will close its environment desk in the next few weeks and assign its seven reporters and two editors to other departments. The positions of environment editor and deputy environment editor are being eliminated. No decision has been made about the fate of the Green Blog, which is edited from the environment desk.

Hmmm... thought the "warming" was supposed to be "global"...

Guess the Chinese did not get the memo

Or maybe it´s just in their Kommunist nature.
Uncooperative contrarians.

Orrrrrrr....
Mebbe the Chi-coms and Ruuskies are workin´ together to fake the cold wave,
so as to thwart any efforts to stop "Global Warming."
And soon, as we know, it´ll be "too late."
By this they intend to ruin the U.S.
All part of their Godless Diabolical Deviousness... Sha-Zammm.

It´s not global warming - like the pro abortion crowd prefer the phrase pro choice, warming alarmists prefer "climate change" these days. Getting colder? Climate change. Warmer? Climate change. If they could just explain what gas guzzlers they drove a hundred thousand years ago to cause that "climate change," then I´ll give them a hearing. Absurd and fatuous, just like Al the bore Gore.

It is embarrassing when our guys express ignorance on climate issues to the extent a leader in Congress and chairman of an relevant committee says that sun spots cause higher temperatures on Earth, apparently unaware that sunspots are only an indicator of solar activity.

It is vital we skeptics put our knowledgable people in Congress to thwart the ecochondriacs the correct way.

Maybe they should tax China and India (the 2 largest CO2 producers in the world) and mandate that those 2 countries drop their CO2 emissions to US levels.

Bet if the UN actually got seriously interested in taxing China and telling them how to run their industry, the entire man-made global warming nonsense would go away.

Of course, who actually believes that this is about the weather in the first place?

Reality Check!!
If anyone will bother to go check the ONLY truly global temperature set available -- NASA´s low atmosphere monitoring multiple satellite system, they will find the "global warming" ended about 2000 and has been flat ever since; and trending slightly downward the past couple of years.
And if you look at the whole 40 year record you will notice it looks a lot like a sine wave.

If you do a quick Internet search for "Gwyneth Paltrow," you´ll find an onslaught of furious comments about the actress. Alhough the 41-year-old often stirs up controversy (thanks to everything from her touting her own wood-burning pizza oven to referring to her recent breakup as a "conscious uncoupling"), this latest reaction is due, in part, to a New York Post open letter to Paltrow regarding an interview she gave on the challenges of being a movie-star mom. On Wednesday, Paltrow, who announced her split from husband Chris Martin this week, told E! News, “I think it´s different when you have an

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Following several years of "constructive dialog" with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the "transgender community." "It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue," Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ´s Community Relations Service kicked off its new "transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training." The training will help law enforcement agencies "improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
