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.

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.

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.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards.

This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

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
