U.S. scientists make official
statement claiming that man IS to
blame for global warming - despite
data being ´inconclusive´

The American Geophysical Union has definitively linked climate change to humanity’s reliance on fossil fuels. In a statement, the Union said that humanity is the major influence on the global climate change observed over the past 50 years. It claimed that human-caused increases in greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed global average surface warming of roughly 0.8°C (1.5°F) over the past 140 years. ´There is only one thing that is going straight up … that is the greenhouse gases that we are just pumping at an exponential rate,´ Gerald North, an atmospheric scientist at Texas A&M

FTA: Speaking to Georgia Tech climate scientist Judith Curry, Pielke said the statement was an inaccurate view of climate change dominated by the emission of carbon dioxide and a few other greenhouse gases.
He said that during the review process, other views were never given an adequate opportunity to be discussed.

In other words, we don´t need no stinkin´ evidence. We will get enough grant money to fund a lavish retirement if we claim to blame humanity for a fuzzy concept called climate change.

Is anything today not political?

Once again underscoring the universal truism - - - -

All leftists are lairs. If they weren´t liars - - they wouldn´t be leftists.

Ain´t it amazing how all this glo-bull warming stuff - - which was dormant for years - - not even called glo-bull warming any more - - starts crawling out from the woodwork as soon as Zippy gives the cue?

I despise leftist liars.

There is a world of difference between hard science and political science, and the scientific method certainly doesn´t include consensus. The end of the fiscal year is rapidly approaching, and grants for research don´t go to honest scientists, sorry, climate deniers!!!

Did they consider greenhouse gasses escaping from undersea as well as above ground volcanic activity? Do they know and understand The Milankovitch Cycles? The answers are No, and No. Their conclusion is meaningless inconclusive inaccurate and unpersuasive. No cigar for you.

When I was a kid growing up, my dad liked to garden. He liked yard work so much that he set up this little plexiglass house in the back so he could grow his plants better and faster.

That little house was a blessing for him, because it worked to give his seedlings and new plants a healthy start in life. It seemed to have its own little climate, moisture evaporating up to the ceiling, and recondensing into little moisture droplets that dripped back down on the plants that gave it off in the first place.

How cool, I used to think.... what a neat little place. I learned about life and the world from that little house, and of course it was called....

The Greenhouse. Those ´gases´ created in that little house HELPED THOSE PLANTS LIVE and grow.

I resent the use of the term ´greenhouse gases´ now to symbolize something bad.

Other than that little skip down memory lane, as far as this article is concerned....

When "science" decides that facts and proof no longer matter, science has no meaning. More and more, liberal scientists postulate a theory, like Globull Warming and think their job is done, simply by creating a theory. The media takes the theory as proven fact. A theory is only the BEGINNING of scientific investigation. Until it is proven it is only someone´s opinion, no matter how well informed. As contrary proof is discovered, theories must be reformed to accommodate the new information. However, the liberal scientist just throws out a new unproven speculation and THAT is then treated as fact. The best liberal practice is to push the event horizon out 100 years or more so that proof or disproof is not possible and then to insist on urgent action in support of their unproven theory.

At some point, the average person begins to lose confidence in ALL science because of the agenda driven liberal science. Real problems are dismissed with the fake and things can become very bad.

A&M just removed itself from serious consideration as a major scientific institution by lining up at the enviro-statists trough of free grant money. No serious scientist can consider man as the sole contributor to climate change. Earthquakes, volcano releases, millions and billions of lightning strikes, methane releases from the ocean floor, and the polar caps far overshadow any contribution by man.
It´s a money scheme and I am ashamed of A&M for being part of it.

As America turns further and further away from God, the further they get away from truth. The left, the media and the Democrat Party has taken the stand that we don´t need God; what we need is more of them (government and marketing). That is called pride and that is what caused the fall in the Garden and it´s what is causing the fall of this nation today.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and pride comes before the fall and most Americans are choosing pride.
When people turn away from God and elevate themselves to deity status, there is no limit to what they will say or do the have their way. Their agenda and narrative takes precedence over truth, logic and facts. It is hard to imagine, but the people who have no fear of God have no sense of right and wrong; they go hand-in-hand. Without that knowledge, they are left to make choices and take stands based one what they think is best for them, not based on what is right or wrong. In fact, right and wrong doesn´t enter into the equation, only their self-serving interests.
They don´t know and they don´t know they don´t know, but they are making decisions that are destroying this nation. They don´t care because they are getting rich and gaining power and influence.

1. Man generates a lot of CO2 and emits it into the atmosphere.

2. CO2 is a greenhouse gas that allows the atmosphere to retain more heat from the sun. Each additional unit of CO2 adds to the warming in a precisely calculable manner at a logarithmic rate. That is each additional unit adds a smaller increment of warming than the previous unit.

3. That amount has been calculated and at the current level a doubling of CO2 (say from 400ppm to 800ppm) adds 1.8C or 3.24F warming to the atmosphere. At the current rate it will take more than a century for a doubling of CO2. That´s not catastrophic warming.

4. But there are feedback effects. Warming causes water to evaporate and water vapor is a greenhouse gas too. The theory is that this will cause much more severe warming. Climate scientists argue about what the atmospheric warming sensitivity to CO2 is given the effects of water vapor. That´s where they come up with catastrophic numbers.

Here´s my point. Even the climate catastrophe skeptics agree with points 1, 2, and 3. They don´t agree with number 4. In fact some research indicates the feedback effect is even negative because clouds reflect sunlight and water vapor convection through clouds rising transport heat high in the atmosphere where it radiates off into space. Nobody knows the real sensitivity number but since global temperature hasn´t risen in 17 years while CO2 has continued to climb the hypothesis that water vapor actually has a negative feedback (to counter CO2 warming) is strengthened. That, of course, is heresy in the church of global warming.

FTA: “He concluded: ‘The relative role of each in altering atmospheric and ocean circulation features, and even the global annual average radiative forcing, however, is still uncertain.’

And we are freaking out because? Somehow this statement doesn’t jive with the headline.

If the entire population of the globe stood shoulder to shoulder, we would not cover the state of Rhode Island. The emissions produced by mankind are infinitesimal compared to natural processes. Yet we are throwing the world out of balance, and the only thing we can do is raise taxes?

The absurdity is enough to raise the temperature of the globe.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners.

Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem.

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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,
