What we owe our kids on climate
CNN, by James Hansen

Original Article

Posted By:poison spring, 12/8/2013 7:16:40 AM

Science has brought us incredible gifts: life-saving vaccines and clean water, air travel and instant communication. Modern life is built upon the knowledge that the scientific community has gathered and that society -- markets, governments, workers -- put to use. We have our ancestors to thank. But will our descendants thank us? Have we put to good use the knowledge we are gaining today to help those who will come after us? That question is now before one of the highest courts of the United States. As a scientist who has spent the past half-century documenting how mankind is fundamentally altering our climate,

As a NASA employee in charge of US temperature records, James Hanson took over $1.2 million in brides from the global warming industry. (They called them speaking fees and honorariums). He should be in jail, not free to make yet more money from his failed predictions.

I´m teaching my kids all about critical thinking. The basic lesson for youngsters, which adults often fail, is that if something sounds too good to be true, it´s probably a fraud. Conversely, if something sounds too bad to be true and if only the government can remedy it with your money, it´s more likely a fraud. I hold up Jim Hansen as an example of the latter.

We don´t "owe" our kids anything. But it would be nice to make sure our buildings are weather-proof, and not built on a flood plain. And this time of year, it´s nice to lend them a car with heated seats.

Prosperity can easily cope with any climate event. Poor societies can be savaged by ordinary storms. Best if our kids are born into prosperity.

Oh thank you # 3. I feel the same way. We owe our kids everything we can do until they´re grown. After that, we owe them nothing. They can learn and figure things out as they age - same as we did. Not that I want to destroy any part of earth - but all this green energy stuff is a giant con created by wealthy people who want even more money. I still don´t know how AlGore came to own carbon offsets. How can he sell something that doesn´t exist?

As I look out at the ice covering the trees and think that this is the longest freeze I can remember in december- early december at that. And the longest freeze i can ever remember happened in january just three years ago.

But even with my own experience making nonsense of their claims i would be willing to listen- to data and experimental results. But i have never been able to find anyone who would present any. And here hansen just drones on as if his thesis is established. Apparently because his thesis falls apart when held open for inspection.

Everyone has a right to his or her opinion, but that does not mean that every opinion can be honorably held. A small but important distinction.

If Hanson wants to parade his ignorance, fine. But he should not be doing it in the character of his position in a taxpayer funded government office.

What we owe our kids on climate, and education, and defense, and everything else, is HONESTY. We´re not getting it from the bull shi**er in chief and we did not get it from James Hansen, who lies by omission by not saying up front that he himself is not educated in atmospherics or climatology or anything else closely related to climate. He is no better prepared by education to judge this issue than most Lucianne.com readers, and he has demonstrated by his repeated dishonesty that he is no more to be trusted than Barack Obama.

Money raised, but Newtown memorial

A project to build a memorial and a center for nonviolence just outside Saratoga Springs has been put on indefinite hold by its backers because of bureaucracy and burnout. Organizers had already obtained about $1 million in pledges toward the roughly $1.2 million cost of the project, which is called The Lighthouse Memorial. Christopher Porter, one of the initial backers, said the center was originally intended to honor the victims of last December’s shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The project was broadened to include all victims of violence.

Keene - Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday he has no doubt man-made global warming is real and all levels of government must invest in more robust infrastructure to deal with the uptick of extreme weather events. Cuomo’s comments came a day after heavy rains caused streams and rivers to jump their banks and flood a swath of counties in upstate New York. Heavy rains and saturated soils left more than 15 households in Johnsburg stranded Friday after rushing waters ripped culverts and bridges from Barton Mines Road in North River. “It’s going to happen again,” Cuomo said

Saratoga - If it hadn’t been for a politician having a little free time to explore his interest in history, an important local historical site might have been lost.[Snip]The grassy knoll, which is about one mile south of Schuylerville, was the place where Gen. John Burgoyne surrendered his sword to Gen. Horatio Gates to end the 1777 Battles of Saratoga. In 1927, a state historical marker was erected to mark the site, although the land had been in private hands since the Revolutionary War. The spot where the 6,000-member British Army laid down their arms is said to be at the park at Fort Hardy.

British rock guitarist Alvin Lee, a member of the band Ten Years After, has died aged 68. His family announced on his official website that he unexpectedly died on 6 March following complications during routine surgery. The Nottingham-born musician rose to fame after appearing at the Woodstock festival in 1969. The band, who had eight Top 40 albums in the UK, had their biggest hit in 1971 with I'd Love To Change the World. "We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician," said the statement from his wife and daughters.

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.

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'

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.

"He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not
