Typhoon Haiyan ´the result of climate change´
Telegraph [UK], by Harriet Alexander

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/12/2013 6:51:15 AM

Naderev "Yeb" Sano, representative for the Philippines at the UN Climate Change talks, broke down in tears as he addressed delegates in Warsaw. Mr Sano, whose family is from Tacloban--one of the worst hit areas--announced that he was going on hunger strike until "a meaningful outcome is in sight". Representatives from 190 nations have gathered in Poland to try and thrash out a new pact to fight global warming. "What my country is going through as a result of this extreme climate event is madness. "We can fix this. We can stop this madness. Right now, right here," Mr Sano

Of course! So is the absence of hurricanes and the historically low number of US tornados this year.

Climate Change giveth.
Climate Change taken away.
Blessed be Climate Change

So the fact that we in the US had zero hurricanes is due to what? I know the Philippines just got hammered but we din´t get a single hard storm. If it was due to climate change, then why didn´t we have the worse hurricane season in history? Or even one hurricane? Phenomena of nature are just that. Man made disasters are things like Obambicare. There is a difference.

This is the long term result of the Bush environmental policies. He purposely created more carbon in the US to protect us from hurricanes, but that means more powerful storms will form elsewhere? Prayers to the Philippinos, but lets keep it factual.

I am always amazed at how many people actually drink the Kool-aid of that environmentalist whacko Algore. He found a way to make millions off of suckers when he was no longer relevant in politics. Oh, I just had a thought. These are the people who don´t believe in God so they can´t blame Him for disasters. Hmmmmmm.

It´s very true that, to the communists masquerading as environmentalists concerned about "climate change", huge storms, lack of storms and normal levels of storms are all "proof" that climate change is occurring.

Likewise, both droughts and excessive rainfall are both equally proof that climate change is occurring.

Now it would be fine to simply let these kooks go on believing this nonsense, but the drumbeat behind this movement is that civilization must be turned over to them so that they can remake society in their vision to save us all from us destroying the world.

All they want is total control over all assets, legislation, energy, and thought. Nothing more, and then they can save us.

We can stop this madness. Really? Mankind has dreamed of controlling the weather for centuries. I have news for you - it isn´t going to happen. And we can´t change the climate either. Global warming and cooling has been going on for eons. Typhoons, hurricanes and storms happen. We human beings can´t prevent that no matter what Algore says.

#3, don´t forget the Evil Dick Cheney Katrina weather machine! My guess is a slight error on the coordinates; instead of "West" longitude, he punched in "East" and the gigantic storm hit the Philippines instead of New Orleans this time.

All sarcasm aside, thoughts/prayers/massive humanitarian aid to the folks in the PI.

I believe that they have a big typhoon hit the Philippines or someplace in the Western Pacific Ocean region every few years. Back during the Second World War as the allies were closing in on Japan, a typhoon ran into the US Pacific Fleet while it was at sea and about 28 ships were either sunk or heavily damaged. So typhoons in that area of the world are a fact of life and are nothing new.

Climate "change?" The climate on this planet has been changing ever since God created Heaven and Earth. And hurricanes and typhoons have always been part of the weather pattern. Of course, any storm is just an excuse to push marxist economic policies. They whine about "climate change" today because "global warming´ was proven to be a hoax. But they´ve cried wolf on this for so long now that anyone with any sense is no longer paying them any attention. Climate change has become a cliche, so I guess they need to come up with a new name for it again.

In the Philippians, one day their climate didn´t have a major typhoon, the next day their climate did.
There you go! Climate change.
I wonder how many major typhoons have hit that area in the last 60,000 years.
Oh, dang, we don´t know. Let alone the last million years.
Oh, yeah, there have been a few Ice Ages and Global Warmings in that time period.

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months.

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box. The book was due for publication this autumn and Townsend had sent “a few wonderful pages” to her editor, Louise Moore, earlier this year. It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

Global solar dominance in sight

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
