Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
Comments: Good news: the offer´s been extended, so there´s still time to save the world from Global Warming, even though Al "Chakras" Gore had us all dead by now.
This "new study" is nothing but a vast rightwing conspiracy to lynch the good intentions of "progressives" who want to save the planet. It was funded by the Russians, climate deniers, white nationalists, and people who say "boobs" on TV.
We realized that many of the doomsday predictions had too short of a timeline, and were in danger of the ´doom date´ being reached with no apparent end of the world in sight.
We have now recalculated the date of doomsday, and placed it far enough in the future that the predictions made today, intended to frighten the sheep into accepting carbon taxes and artificial limits on their freedom, are no longer in danger of being shown for the fantasies that they are.
When, (at a future date when everyone involved with today´s fraud will be long retired) the new doomsday dates are being approached, a new revision, pushing the date of doomsday still farther into the future, will of course be established. We leave it to the future supporters of the hoax to devise a suitable explanation, with fancy enough sounding Bovine Scatology to convince the gullible audiences who will be paying attention at that time.
There used to be people (maybe there still are?) wandering around downtown areas wearing togas, sporting long hair and shouting dire warnings, " The end of the World is coming". And now these people are sitting in universities and government offices and being paid fortunes by American taxpayers for their prognostications. Go figure.
Even if we do everything AlGore and his acolytes declare, Doomsday is STILL coming. In 6 billion years, the Sun will expand into a Red Giant (Russians?) and sear the earth. BUT! That is only if we survive the oncoming collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the Andromeda galaxy in 4.7 billion years! Oh, the Humanity s/o
How is it that this article can pretend to seriously discuss "flaws" in the model when the model has been outed as a 24 carrot fraud?
They faked the data that fed the math behind the model plain and simple. They also relied in changes in thermal capacity of objects such as concrete adjacent to where measurements were taken. It hasn´t warmed in 18 years, the antarctic icecap was growing while the arctic icecap shrunk in the 90´s and now the arctic icecap has regained most of its loss.
And they would have already had us abandon the economic system and governance system that have led to the greatest prosperity, best human condition, and most benevolence toward others in history of earth.
These are dangerous people they have absolutely no credibility. Don´t believe a word of what they have to say now that their narrative has passed it´s freshness date and they have to spin the new version of why we have to hand everything over to the globalists. And people wonder why its so easy for some to believe in wild conspiracy theories.
CO2 did not become the problem because it is a Greenhous gas (Which it is not) but rather because it is the by product of all human activity. And human activity, itself, is the devil in the church of Gaia.
Arguing with these new religionists is like arguing the ´Transubstantiation´ with orthodox Catholics.
No, no, no, no... a thousand times no! Opposing scientific views are not the way to make Al Gore cry. Taking away his family-size bag of Cheetos without explanation is the way to make him cry. Articles like this one in the Telegraph only inspire him to make another unwatchable, plot-free, humorless piece-of-caca movie with perpetual loop footage of imploding glaciers and boiling polar bears. I thank God that this self-approving windbag was defeated by "W". The feeling of joy in 2000 was no doubt eclipsed by the feelings in November 2016 but each win was exciting in its own way. A richer country than ours would find some National Park money to carve the faces of Gore, Kerry, and Hillary Clinton into a mountainside cliff and call it Mt, Losemore.
Two things have always held the climate warming brigade into question for me. Around the year 900 the earth was a lot warmer according to every competent person without one auto, one smoke stack nor one utility facility, all the things the warmers claim cause the earth’s warming did not even exist yet. Yet these geniuses claim they know with mathematical certainty what the temperature will be 100 years from now, when they can’t tell you with any accuracy what it will be next Tuesday.
Climate change has become a distraction that has taken attention away from real problems like hurricanes. More focus needs to be on building codes, flood control, the electric grid, and other infrastructure.
The free range chickens are coming home to roost. I guess all those hurricanes are really a breath of fresh air purging the polluted skies. This is really hilarious to listen to. The models were wrong? For real the pointy headed, taxpayer funded, white lab coat wearing, loons ´blew it´ and it was all a hoax because of an incorrect model. This is 7th grade Science Fair stuff.
Not news to the many of use who have paid close attention to this and have not "previously thought" that anything serious was going on, other than the giant hoax to gather power and money to a few a the top.
NASA, among others had lots of evidence that their models were wrong as early as 2000. Look up Ferenc Miskolczi - I think I am spelling that right. He is a real physicist [originally from Hungary] who has specialized in atmospheric science since 1975. He may be retired now. He has been attacked since he came out in 2008 when presented a paper at a ´deniers´ conference. He pointed out that the greenhouse equation used in the super computer models is faulty. They use the old equation that values atmospheric depth as infinite. [When the equation came out in the 1920´s - the math by hand was too long & difficult - the infinity sign made it ´easier´. Plus they did not have a good measure of atmospheric depth.] He had done all sorts of research finding depth of atmosphere and modelling using several different equations. He told his bosses at NASA this and was ordered to shut up.
The sad thing is, the science no longer matters. Alarmists are pushing draconian measures to transfer money from wealthy nations to poorer nations under the auspices of the Climate Control Police, which just coincidentally accrues the massive amount of power that goes along with massive amounts of money to those in control. Why? Because it´s apparently the "right" thing to do. You see, the government knows better than the people how to spend their money. So the government takes your money and distributes it as they see fit. In return, government takes "care" of us; at a poverty level. The only one better off is government.
I spent over 40 years earning a good living with highest end computer modeling. I have repeatedly said that their climate models are hopeless inaccurate.
You cannot model that which you do not understand in excruciating detail, and which you cannot calibrate your models with single independent variable experiments. They do NOT fully understand the details of the atmosphere, and you CANNOT do single independent variable calibration experiments to calculate the coefficients of the terms in the polynomial. Hold the temperature of the Pacific Ocean constant while you vary the insolation input to calibrate your interaction coefficient? Impossible - so they just make it up. Fake it.
The models are so poor that anyone who says that they are useful for planning is a fraud.
This has always been obvious to any serious computer modeling experts.
Republican Roy Moore refused to conceded the special election race after news networks called the race for Democrat Doug Jones, saying the race is “not over” and that God is on his side. Mr. Moore and his campaign said the margin of Mr. Jones’ lead is likely to trigger a recount under state law because could end up being less than half a percentage point. “When the vote is this close, it is not over,” Mr. Moore told his supporters at his election night rally. (Snip) With 99 percent of the precincts counted, Mr. Jones held a 49.9 percent to
Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clinton’s 20-plus plane rides on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”
President Trump pressured congressional Democrats Saturday to drop their demands for amnesty for young illegal immigrants as part of a year-end spending deal, saying their insistence on protecting illegals is part of a liberal mindset that led to the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. “Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on sanctuary cities,” Mr. Trump said in his weekly address. “Now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government, holding troop funding hostage and putting our national security at risk. We cannot allow it.”
The US Navy says an African-American sailor who claimed that a fellow shipmate had vandalized his bunk with racial slurs actually faked the whole incident. Marquie Little, 27, an African-American aviation boatswain´s mate airman aboard the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush claimed in a Facebook post that one of his shipmates had vandalized his sleeping area with the word ´n*****´ and trashing it. In the November 15 post, which was apparently written under an alias Facebook account and has since been shared 20,500 times, Little had written, ´I proudly serve the Navy and this is what I’m receiving in return,´
The son of Rep. John Conyers, who resigned from Congress this week amid sexual harassment accusations, was arrested in Los Angeles in February on suspicion of domestic violence, NBC News has learned. John Conyers III, who his father endorsed for his Congressional seat as he departed, ´body slammed [his girlfriend] on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her,´ the police report said. The junior Conyers rebutted her statement saying the girlfriend, who wasn´t named in the complaint, was using alcohol and marijuana, and tried to throw him out of the residence.
Lionsgate has dropped its John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta just 10 days before the movie´s scheduled released date. The surprising eleventh hour move was reported on Tuesday, with several sources confirming the studio has cut ties with the project. Lionsgate has reportedly sold Gotti back to its production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis and they are expected to be seeking new distribution. (Snip) However, it´s highly unlikely a new distributor will be found in time for the slated release date of December 15 and it will no doubt get pushed to 2018. Lionsgate has not given any explanation for the sale which took place on
Mobile, Alabama — The Republican National Committee (RNC) is now again backing Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The RNC’s decision to now publicly support Moore again comes in the wake of President Donald Trump’s wholehearted endorsement of Moore on Monday morning. (Snip) Throughout this process, since the Washington Post published frivolous evidence-free allegations against Moore, the RNC’s position has closely mirrored the White House position on Moore. At first, the RNC held out criticism or withdrawal of support while the president was overseas in Asia on a multi-day, multi-country trip.
Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares last month asked federal taxpayers to shell out $94 billion to pay for the territory’s recovery from Hurricane Maria — then turned around and paid out about $100 million in Christmas bonuses to island government employees. The governor’s aides say the bonuses are a longstanding tradition and part of the law, and were planned for in the budget approved last summer. But that budget came well before Hurricanes Irma and Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving much of the territory in ruin and leaving the government begging for federal assistance. The island’s financial oversight board,
Even if President Trump stops calling her “Pocahontas,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be unable to silence the chatter over her dubious claims of Cherokee ancestry for at least the next year, thanks in part to someone whose Indian heritage isn’t in doubt. Shiva Ayyadurai, a Bombay-born, MIT-educated entrepreneur running as an independent to unseat the Massachusetts Democrat, already is the early favorite for the November election’s catchiest campaign slogan: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.” In June, he sent Ms. Warren a DNA testing kit for her birthday. She sent it back, but the exchange exploded on
A Somali refugee who raped two Utah women when he was 14, has been spared adult prison - despite pleas from one of his victims. Mohammed Ali Mohammed, 20, has spent almost six years at a Salt Lake Valley juvenile detention center after pleading guilty rape, sexual assault and kidnapping charges in 2012, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. (Snip) One woman, who was attacked and raped in her own Salt Lake City home by Mohammed, who then forced her at knife point to take money out at the ATM, said she is ´terrified´ at the thought her rapist will be free
Hundreds have been evacuated from Oxford Circus tube station amid reports of gunshots. Armed police have arrived on scene after a gunman was reported to have fired shots. Witnesses at the scene described seeing a lorry on the pavement surrounded by police as if it had ´ploughed´ into pedestrians. Next to the lorry, the pavement was said to be covered in blood. People in the area also reported hearing gun shots being fired, though there has been no confirmation as of yet. Dan Smallbone said on Twitter: ´There is a lorry stopped on the pavement in Oxford street, police all around it and blood
Missouri school officials said a non-white student confessed this week to scrawling a racist message on a girls’ bathroom mirror, causing unrest at a St. Louis-area high school. The controversial phrase, “White Lives Matter,” followed by the N-word was discovered on a girls’ bathroom mirror at Parkway Central High School in Chesterfield on Nov. 15. (Snip) “The use of the N-word, in the context of the message on the bathroom mirror, provoked feelings of hate, not love,” he said, a local CW affiliate reported. “As I stated last week, actions and speech which degrade an individual’s human dignity
On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters. According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true. Republicans and Democrats split on partisan lines — a whopping 82 percent of Republicans said the allegations were "probably" or "definitely" false,
DEVELOPING…Democrat Doug Jones has defeated Roy Moore in Alabama’s Senate election, according to a projection from the Fox News Decision Desk.ORIGINAL STORY…The hard-fought Alabama Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones remains too close to call, though a Fox News voter analysis shows the Democratic nominee enjoying a lead over his GOP rival. Jones’ competitiveness is a remarkable development in a deep red state that reflects just how badly Moore has been hurt by a sex scandal. But the race is still fluid. With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Jones and Moore both had 49.2 percent, according to
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women. Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around
Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused
President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is still fired up about President Trump’s tweet mocking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and took her frustrations out on first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. “[Trump] should have apologized for being a sexist pig,” Brzezinski said. “And the women around him, his wife, who has a platform against cyber bullying, that’s a joke. That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.” Brzezinski then shifted her attention to Ivanka Trump, “Who came to Washington… to develop a platform for women,” but has stood by her father. “Go home. You’re doing nothing if you stand
Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee died early Tuesday morning at age 65, his office said. The sudden news came in an email from the office at 2:23 a.m. It read: “It is with profound sadness and terrible grief that we confirm that Mayor Edwin M. Lee passed away on Tuesday, December 12 at 1:11 a.m. at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Family, friends and colleagues were at his side. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Anita, his two daughters, Brianna and Tania, and his family.”
Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out
