Study of centuries of weather
suggests record warming ahead

Los Angeles Times, by Monte Morin

Posted By:addicted_to_coffee, 3/10/2013 12:54:19 PM

First the good news: In the last 11,300 years, humans have endured a planet warmer than today´s, even as they set about building their earliest civilizations. Now the bad news: That will no longer be true 87 years from now, according to scientists who have conducted a comprehensive analysis of the planet´s climate history since the world´s ice sheets began their most recent retreat from North America and Europe.

Comments:
utter crap.

They just keep postponing Global Warming until one day they´ll get it right. It´s true that over the last 10k years 90% of the time was warmer than it is today. Humans survived.

With each passing MSM BS piece we´re treated to, the era of accurate record keeping is moved back by centuries and , in some cases, millenia. Maybe there is some credible information in tree rings but the rest of it is highly suspect. Did I say highly suspect? I meant lying.

They used to predict the end of the world within 10-15 years, but became laughingstocks after the 10-15 years ended and nothing had changed. At least now they are giving themselves 80-100 years to become laughingstocks.

The Big Lie (German: Große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. It was defined by Adolf Hitler in his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf as a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously". Computer projections of "warming" by the climate alarmists have failed numerous times. But if they nonetheless can persuade enough sheep (media + politicians) that the sky is falling, they can control (POWER) and regulate ($$$$) all energy-related human activity, going so far as remotely controlling your thermostat, what you eat, and imposing public transportation.
Is it any wonder that their sky-is-falling hysteria is implacable?

"By the end of the century, climate warming models predict an additional increase of 2 to 11.5 degrees, due largely to carbon emissions, the study noted."

This is exactly what was said about the 21st century, during the 1990´s. Hitler said if you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it.

The next "disaster" is always predicted to be just around the corner. As the corner is started to be turned and the disaster doesn´t emerge they move the prediction to the next corner and use "new" methods to support the new prognostication. That is necessary because the "science" used to predict the disaster from the previous corner has now been completely debunked.

And note that Michael Mann wasn´t discredited because of what he was trying to say. He was discredited because his math was wrong. It turned out that almost any data fed into his model ended up as a hockey stick. The data didn´t matter. He created a model that produced hockey stick graphs and then tried to tell us that the data showed warming. Baloney. He also refused to submit his findings to review and when he was finally forced to, they were immediately shown to be defective. Did Mann know the problem with his research? I´ll bet he did and didn´t care. Any article that uses Michael Mann as a source is of very dubious credibility.

So when this "new" information is released to the scientific community and peer validated then we can give it some consideration.

I´m not holding my breath.

The number of propaganda pieces claiming unprecedented warning has suddenly increased. It´s a media push because Obama´s newest gestapo chief is about to ram a bunch of prosperity killing regulations down our throats, all in the name of global warming.

The facts, as we are best able to determine them, are that it was warmer in the Middle Ages (we can tell from WRITTEN records... no Tree Rings necessary, thank you). It was warmer still during the Roman Period and warmer even than that in the Minoan period. No surprise that it might have been warmer still before.

So, this time it´s different? WE caused this? \\

Gee, I´d always thought all the heat came from the sun... that CO2 was plant food in the air... and we´re rather insignificant critters as far as the earth is concerned.

Oh, and yeah... Save the planet. It´s outlasted asteroid strikes, dinosaurs, massive volcanoes and glaciation. There isn´t enough ice mass left to make the oceans rise by 65 feet (do the math).

And quoting James Hansen isn´t going to get you anywhere.

In a year when California Democrats are worried about motivating their voters, Gov. Jerry Brown heard another unwelcome message Saturday: Some Democratic activists are bristling over his administration´s policies on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Appearing at a state Democratic Party convention in Los Angeles, Brown found himself forced to speak over a noisy group of sign-waving protesters in his first major campaign speech since formally declaring his candidacy last month.

Republicans fighting a yearslong unionization effort at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee painted a grim picture in the days leading up to last week’s vote. They said if Chattanooga employees joined the United Auto Workers, jobs would go elsewhere and incentives for the company would disappear. Now that workers have rejected the UAW in a close vote, attention turns to whether the GOP can fulfill its promises that keeping the union out means more jobs will come rolling in, the next great chapter in the flourishing of foreign auto makers in the South.

Resist the Siren’s Call of ’Originalism’
Bloomberg.com, by Cass R. Sunstein    Original Article

“Originalism” is an influential theory of constitutional interpretation. In the 1960s, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, a prominent liberal, marched proudly under the originalist banner. In the modern era, originalism is championed by Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, the court’s most conservative members. In its least attractive form, practiced by politicians rather than judges, originalism is ideological posturing with a constitutional veneer -- a naive or cynical way of attributing the views of the current political right to the Constitution’s ratifiers. But for all those who seek to restrain judicial power, originalism should be attractive. At the same time, the

One of the best arguments for health-insurance reform is that our traditional employer-based system often locked people into jobs they wanted to leave but couldn´t because they feared they wouldn´t be able to get affordable coverage elsewhere. This worry was pronounced for people with pre-existing conditions but not limited to them. Consider families with young children in which one of the parents would like to get out of the formal labor market for a while to take care of the kids. In the old system, the choices of such couples were constrained if only one of the two received employer-provided family

It´s been decided that vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, which allow cars and trucks to "talk" with one another and their surroundings, will move from just research to actual implementation thanks to a recent approval. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to put V2V technology in all new cars and trucks as a way of avoiding traffic accidents and fatalities. For example, your car could let you know that another vehicle ahead is about to blow through a stop sign in an attempt to avoid a crash.

Bakken Crude More Dangerous

Crude oil produced in North America’s Bakken region may be more flammable and therefore more dangerous to ship by rail than crude from other areas, a U.S. regulator said after studying the question for four months. The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced its preliminary conclusion three days after a BNSF Railway Co. train carrying oil caught fire after a collision in Casselton, North Dakota. The regulator “is reinforcing the requirement to properly test, characterize, classify, and where appropriate sufficiently degasify hazardous materials prior to and during transportation,” it said in a statement posted on its website today.

A group of 10 U.S. Senators introduced a bipartisan bill on Thursday to eliminate the corn ethanol mandate, arguing that current law raises the cost of food and animal feed and damages the environment. The bill, introduced by Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat; Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican; and eight cosponsors, faces an uphill battle as many lawmakers from agricultural states support the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)that dictates that rising volumes of ethanol made from grains, including corn, be blended into motor fuel.

American football is a violent game and it is rare that one ends without injury. A dislocated shoulder, broken ribs, cracked collarbones, or a torn ACL -- this and more is what we watch on the weekends. Aiming for the quarterback is axiomatic. If defenders can hurry, shake, or hurt the quarterback, he can lose his rhythm or be driven from the game, leaving the offense in the hands of a second or even third-string player.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.
