4 annoying ways climate change
will make your life a bummer

The Week, by Chris Gayomali

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 4/10/2013 7:30:26 PM

Within the next few decades, carbon emissions could cause global temperatures to rise between 4 and 11 degrees Fahrenheit, melting ice caps and causing sea levels to rise. The price of crops like coffee and chocolate will skyrocket, and countless cuddly animals around the globe could be wiped out. And yet, a lot of people find it hard to really care about climate change. But don´t be fooled: Climate change will affect you. Here´s a brief sampling of ways that warmer temperatures will suck the fun out of your life: 1. Your flights will be more turbulent

Comments:
Was your flight bumpy? Did you slip and fall while skiing? Did your ferret die? Guess what is to blame???

Raving moonbats!

Climates have always changed.

Maybe next year we can get worked up in a frenzy about the darkening of the sun [each day].

Think of the TRILLIONS in lost productivity due to this climate change hoax.

So...to recap...the *last* go-round of cataclysmic temperatures didn´t occur...

...but *this* time...

I get the feeling the bulk of the carbon output from most of these ´climate experts´ is bong-related.

Damn sure isn´t like they´ve gotten *any* of their major predictions in the last few decades even close...

I think I´ll go with the observation of the MIT professor, who actually has a Ph.D. in
a hard science...

He recently said that people many years from now will find it puzzling that anyone
today would go into a tizzy over a possible one degree or so change.

You notice this writer-moron has decided that temperatures will rise 4-11 degrees?
Someone please take away his bath salts before he´s found eating the face of

In 1997 the gathered scientific community consensus was there had been a statistically significant (barely) increase of one degree over the previous 100 years. There was NOT a statistically significantly correlation with the activity of men. For the next 16 years, there has been no change in the global ave temperature. So how does that translate into 4 to 11 degrees in the next few decades? Is this idiot aware that Fargo ND has flooded 4 of the last 5 years because of the exceptional snow melt?

There is only ONE way ´global warming´ will affect your life, and that´s if enough liberals vote in politicians that pass laws that steal your hard-earned dollars so they can pass it out to their green friends, who in turn vote for them and contribute to them. That´s the ONLY way, and we´d better wake up.

Reminds me of two things I was on TV long ago.

"Nick of Time" episode of The Twilight Zone with Jim Shatner and Betty Kelly, couple at a diner who get a few correct answers from fortune-telling machine, so that Shatner´s character starts to fall into its thrall. They get away, as should the rest of us, then two older characters come to the diner to beg the machine as to when they can safely leave town.

The other is an old, old cartoon, like the really old Terrytoons. I´ve tried hard to find it. Black and white, no dialogue, just music, animal characters, some sort of allusion to Orson Wells´ "War of the Worlds" broadcast, some of cartoon´s characters make a big toothy pumpkin-like mask fitting in front of the Moon to look make it look scary, and they get everybody panicked. Then the ruse is figured out and the other animal characters have the scammers in hot pursuit.

Ukraine conflict tests Obama´s
credibility on the world stage
CBS News, by Rebecca Kaplan    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 3/3/2014 6:23:14 PM     Post Reply
The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

Harare - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has thrown his weight behind Uganda´s draconian anti-gay laws and hinted at a crackdown on gays in his own country, state media reported Monday. He castigated the West for punishing Kampala with aid cuts after President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a bill that banned homosexuality in the east African country. "They (the West) want to tell us... that it´s a violation of human rights, that is what they are doing to Museveni right now," Mugabe said.

Western leaders from President Barack Obama to Chancellor Angela Merkel are telling Russia not to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty. Vladimir Putin’s response as he prepares for military conflict: What about ours? Putin has been warning the U.S. and other North Atlantic Treaty Organization states for at least six years not to impede Russian interests in Ukraine, particularly in Crimea, where the Black Sea Fleet has been based since its founding by Catherine the Great in 1783 after the Ottoman Empire ceded the peninsula. Putin told a closed NATO summit in Romania in 2008 that the military alliance was threatening Ukraine’s very

Italy´s culture minister demanded explanations on Sunday after more collapses this weekend in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii raised concerns about the state of one of the world´s most treasured archaeological sites. Pompeii, preserved under ash from a volcanic eruption in 79AD and rediscovered in the 18th century, has been hit by a series of collapses in recent months and years which have sparked international outcry over the neglect of the site. Officials said the wall of a tomb about 1.7 metres high and 3.5 metres long collapsed in the necropolis of Porta Nocera in the early hours of

The West is blinking in disbelief – Vladimir Putin just invaded Ukraine. German diplomats, French Eurocrats and American pundits are all stunned. Why has Russia chosen to gamble its trillion-dollar ties with the West? Western leaders are stunned because they haven’t realized Russia’s owners no longer respect Europeans the way they once did after the Cold War. Russia thinks the West is no longer a crusading alliance. Russia thinks the West is now all about the money. (Snip) Behind European corruption, Russia sees American weakness.

Washington Dam Has 65-Foot Crack

Engineers have started emergency procedures to stabilize a Washington dam after they found a 65-foot crack in the structure. The Wanapum Dam, a hydroelectric project located on the Columbia River in Grant County, Wash., is still running after divers discovered a 65-foot crack that is 2-inches wide. The problem was first identified after an engineer noticed a “bowing” in the roadway above the dam and later discovered that a concrete spillway was raised above the water by 2.5 inches, according to Grant County Public Utility District spokesman Thomas Stredwick. “Since we’ve noticed the issue, there’s no additional movement for that spillway

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

Missouri executed its fourth inmate in as many months early Wednesday, even as the issue of capital punishment has sparked a new and reshaped political debate in the state and across the country. The Midwestern state has become a key battleground: As lethal-injection drug supplies have been disrupted, states have been scrambling to adapt, and Missouri lawmakers from both sides of the aisle aren’t happy with what they say is excessive secrecy about the process and questions about whether the sentences are being competently carried out. The issue crosses party lines. Missouri’s Democratic governor and attorney general are both pro-death

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
