Global warming is ´almost definitely´
caused by humans, UN report claims

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Sarah Griffiths

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/3/2014 9:25:26 PM

Global warming is unequivocal and human influence has been the dominant cause since the mid-20th century, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC´s full and final findings on the state of the planet’s climate have been published and the report, which was put together for the UN, says that limiting climate change will require ‘substantial and sustained’ reductions of greenhouse gas emissions. The findings of the report, which includes the comment that global warming is ´almost definitely´ caused by humans, were approved by the member governments of the IPCC in September. The final version has now been released to

Almost Definitely is the same thing we used to say in East Texas. Purt Near. Over Yonder. A Bugs Bill, and the ever popular Might Nigh.I hope you catch my drift?

The universe "almost definitely" used to revolve around the earth, until Copernicus proved otherwise.

Most of this stuff from the UN is to help it get taxing authority and world law.

Something like a jet fuel carbon tax on all airlines would please them very much. Other world-wide taxes to follow.

But it is hard to justify a world tax if the activity taxed and the problem to be solved is not world-wide. Fuel use and climate are. So the UN blames nearly every ill of the universe upon those and will continue to do so.

I thought "the science is settled." When did "almost" sneak in there? Was it when the arctic ice grew by 70 percent in the last year? Or when the "pause" was finally acknowledged? Or when it kept snowing each winter, when it was supposed to not snow after 2008? If the White House were to say that the President "almost definitely" was born in America, would that be reassuring, or would all hell break loose?

I call BS. Plants are crying for more CO2. They evolved under conditions of much higher CO2 conditions....

2000ppm 150million years ago
almost 5000ppm 500million years ago

200ppm during the interglacial, the level below which plant life shuts down.

We are dangerously close to that level of CO2 at Hansen´s limit of 350ppm.

Blood-soaked Crimea,

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Edward Lucas    Original Article

Back in the days when British schools taught history and poetry properly, every child knew about the Charge of the Light Brigade. The epitome of military foolishness, when the flower of the British cavalry attacked Russia’s artillery batteries in the Battle of Balaclava in 1854. The blundering diplomacy which caused that war is less well known. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, whose poem immortalised the fiasco, would have struggled to versify the complex Anglo-French attempts to shore up the Ottoman empire, amid an obscure squabble about religious privileges in the Holy Land. The Crimea, setting for that most infamous calamity, is a peninsula with

Ukraine´s former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko has appealed for the West to adopt ´strongest means´ to intervene in Russia´s occupation of Crimea if diplomacy fails. In an interview with CNN´s Christiane Amanpour, Tymoshenko, freed last week after the riots throughout the nation, said that if Russia is allowed to ´take away´ Crimea, life will change ´practically everywhere in the world.´ She added: ´Then we have to accept... an aggressor, can violate all the international agreements, take away territories, whenever she likes.´ ´We can’t afford this in the world.

Ukraine says Russian forces controlling the strategic region of Crimea are demanding that the crew of two Ukrainian warships surrender. Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Maksim Prauta said four Russian navy ships were blocking Ukraine´s anti-submarine warship Ternopil and the command ship Slavutych in Sevastopol´s harbour. He said the Russians ordered the crew to surrender within the hour or face Russians storming and seizing the ships and crew. It has also been reported that Ukrainian forces in Crimea have until 3am to surrender or face attack from the Russian fleet. The ultimatum came from the commander of Russia´s Black Sea Fleet Alexander Vitko, which has

At last, Washington has found a fight it does not want to have. When the Russian parliament authorized the deployment of military forces in Ukraine, sending black-clad gunmen into the former Soviet Republic, it might have been expected to touch off yet another battle between the White House and congressional Republicans. Instead, there has been a conspicuous absence of saber-rattling on both sides — an acknowledgment, perhaps, of the complexity of the situation in Eastern Europe, as well as the public’s overwhelming distaste for foreign entanglements. For Democrats and Republicans who spent much of the last century competing to be Moscow’s most

Russia has said China is largely "in agreement" over Ukraine, after other world powers condemned Moscow for sending troops into the country. Hundreds of Russian soldiers have surrounded a military base in Crimea, preventing Ukrainian soldiers from going in or out. The convoy blockading the site, near the Crimean capital Simferopol, includes at least 17 military vehicles. Russian troops are also reported to have taken control of a ferry terminal in the city of Kerch on the eastern tip of Crimea, which has a majority Russian-speaking population. Ukraine´s defence ministry said two Russian fighter jets violated the country´s air space in the Black

Barack Obama is the second U.S. president in a row to badly misjudge Vladimir Putin. In 2001, after his first meeting with Putin, George W. Bush famously told Colin Powell, his secretary of state, that he thought the Russian leader was religious. “Powell, I looked into Putin’s eyes and I saw his soul.” To which Powell replied: “Mr. President, I looked into President Putin’s eyes and I saw the KGB.” Barack Obama hasn’t made that mistake. But in the wake of Russia’s invasion of the Ukranian region of Crimea, it’s worth remembering that in 2008, Obama ridiculed John McCain for warning

Russia has delivered a deadline to Ukrainian forces in Crimea to surrender or face military action after troops seized key installations in the peninsula. The ultimatum came from the commander of Russia´s Black Sea Fleet Alexander Vitko, which has a base in Crimea where Russian forces are now in control. According to the agency, it reads: "If they do not surrender before 5am (3am GMT) tomorrow, a real assault will be started against units and divisions of the armed forces across Crimea." It comes as Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev discussed the situation in Ukraine with US Vice President Joe Biden by

On CNN, Fareed Zakaria interviewed Princeton and NYU professor Stephen Cohen about his article in The Nation this week in which he argues that Vladamir Putin is not the "neo-imperialist thug" he is accused of being. Asked about Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine, Cohen said that Putin did not create the crisis and had no choice but to react. Cohen also said that next to Mikhail Gorbachev and possibly Boris Yeltsin, Putin was the least authoritarian Russian ruler in 400 years.

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

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have
