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.
Donald Trump suggested in tweets early on Wednesday that former FBI director James Comey had decided to spare Hillary Clinton from prosecution “long before investigation was complete” into her government email practices, calling the process “a fix”. “FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete,” Trump tweeted, continuing, “Many people not interviewed, including Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn’t do this-obviously a fix? Where is Justice Dept?” Trump was referring to documents released by the FBI on Monday which show that Comey had composed a draft entitled: “Drafts of
A predominately black elementary school in Jackson, Mississippi, named after Confederate President Jefferson Davis, will be renamed after former President Barack Obama, leaders announced Tuesday. Davis Magnet IB PTA President Janelle Jefferson said during the Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting that school stakeholders voted earlier this month to rename the school Barack Obama Magnet IB, a move that will go into effect for the 2018-19 school year, The Clarion Ledger reported. (Snip) “We really wanted to know what they thought,” Ms. Jefferson said. “They could relate to Barack Obama because of his achievements, because he looks like them.”
The U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) issued a detainer request on the Sonoma County Jail for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez, who was arrested Sunday on suspicion of arson in Wine Country fires that have killed at least 40 residents. Breitbart News reported earlier this week that Sonoma County Sheriffs had arrested Jesus Fabian Gonzalez, 29, at Maxwell Regional Park in Sonoma County after a series of reports of ongoing fires in the region. (Snip) Mr. Gonzalez, who is homeless and reportedly known by law enforcement to have been living under a nearby bridge, claimed he was cold and had lit the
The head of MI5 today warned Britain is facing the biggest terror threat of his 34 year career - as he said tech giants have an ´ethical responsibility´ to crack down on extremists. Andrew Parker said extremists are mounting deadly terror attacks with just a few days of planning as the UK sees a ´dramatic´ jump in the scale and pace of the threat. In his annual ´state of the union´ assessment of the threat facing the UK, he said extremists are exploiting ´safe spaces´ online, hindering intelligence efforts to root them out. And he issued a fresh challenge to technology firms,
Philadelphia — When U.S. Sen. John McCain was a younger man, once or twice he was tasked with carrying Joe Biden´s luggage. On Monday, after Biden, the former U.S. vice president, awarded McCain with the National Constitution Center´s Liberty Medal, McCain was sure to let everyone know he hadn´t forgotten. "I´ve resented it ever since," McCain said on the lawn of the Philadelphia museum as he accepted the award for his lifetime of sacrifice and service to the country. (Snip) "The son of a gun never carried my bags," said Biden, a Democrat. "He was supposed to carry my bags;
President Trump said Monday that he’s eyeing another major government reform — this time tackling welfare. He said some recipients are taking advantage of public assistance while others in need don’t get it. “We are looking very, very strongly therefore at welfare reform,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the start of a Cabinet meeting at the White House. The mention of welfare reform was unexpected. He rarely mentioned the topic during the campaign and has been consumed with other ambitious plans since taking office. Mr. Trump is currently trying to push a major tax-code overhaul through Congress, a huge undertaken
Morehouse College board members have chosen the former dean of Georgetown University’s business school to lead the Atlanta-based, historically black college for men. The board voted late Sunday to name David A. Thomas the college’s 12th president. (Snip) Thomas said in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution his goals include increasing enrollment from its current 2,200 students to 2,500 students, providing more scholarships, finding opportunities for every student to study abroad, supporting faculty research and engaging in issues that improve outcomes for African-American men, noting Morehouse “is a place where we can offer solutions to those issues.”
A group of Georgia cheerleaders say they´ll take a knee in the stadium tunnel when the national anthem is played at Saturday´s homecoming game since their university moved them off the field after an earlier demonstration. Kennesaw State University cheerleader Shlondra Young tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the so-called "Kennesaw Five" will kneel until the U.S. flag "represents what it should." (Snip) Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren tells The Marietta Daily Journal he called the school president after that game and was assured the demonstration would not happen again. School officials say they moved the cheerleaders off the field before
Mogadishu, Somalia — The most powerful bomb blast ever witnessed in Somalia´s capital killed 276 people with around 300 others injured, the country´s information minister said early Monday, making it the deadliest single attack in this Horn of Africa nation. The toll was expected to rise. In a tweet, Abdirahman Osman called the attack "barbaric" and said countries including Turkey and Kenya had already offered to send medical aid. Hospitals were overwhelmed a day after a truck bomb targeted a crowded street near key government ministries, including foreign affairs. As angry protesters gathered near the scene of the attack, Somalia´s
Lost in the uproar over the NFL sideline protests against police brutality are newly released statistics showing that the threat to black men is skyrocketing — not from trigger-happy or racist cops, but from crime. More than any other demographic group, black men are paying the price with their lives with a surging violent crime rate over the past two years, including a 20 percent jump in the overall homicide rate, even as the number of blacks killed by police declines. Using homicide figures from the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report released Sept. 25, Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald
A 39-year-old man in the country illegally pleaded guilty Thursday to causing a traffic crash that killed a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy last year. Adrian Espinosa-Flores, 39, pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless second-degree murder in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins. Collins was killed on Sept. 11, 2016, while conducting a traffic stop on U.S. 69 just north of 151st Street in Overland Park. Collins’ patrol vehicle was parked when a pickup truck driven by Espinosa-Flores ran into the back of Collins’ vehicle, pushing it into the SUV that the deputy had pulled over.
Mogadishu, Somalia — A huge explosion from a truck bomb killed 20 people in Somalia´s capital, police said Saturday, as shaken residents called it the most powerful blast they´d heard in years. The explosion appeared to target a hotel on a busy road in Hodan district and at least 15 people were injured, police Capt. Mohamed Hussein said. Security forces had been trailing the truck after it raised suspicions, he said. Police said people were trapped in the rubble of the Safari Hotel, which was largely destroyed in the explosion. The hotel is close to Somalia´s foreign ministry. Rescue workers
Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations
George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what
Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.
A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´. Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an
Meghan McCain gave an interview on Tuesday where she responded to President Trump‘s warning towards her father after his speech against “spurious nationalism.” In a Good Morning America interview with George Stephanopoulos, McCain noted that Trump and her father clearly have different ideas about the best direction of the country. She went on to declare that she’s “exhausted” with the GOP’s infighting and the attacks against her dad after all the challenges he has already faced. “I don’t know if you guys have heard but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen or
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret
WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tom Homan confirmed on Thursday that a man arrested in connection with setting a fire in Sonoma County Wine Country is an illegal alien from Mexico who has been twice returned to his “home country.” Homan also confirmed that ICE has issued detainer requests for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez five times now in the past year alone, including the one issued on October 16 in relation to his most recent arrest on suspicion of arson. All of the arrests were made “by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges,” according
Democratic Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson is laughing and bragging after White House chief of staff John Kelly said he was “stunned” Thursday that Wilson criticized President Donald Trump’s call to the widow of a dead soldier. “You mean to tell me that I’ve become so important…that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now,” Wilson told Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV, while laughing. (Snip) The congresswoman also bizarrely said, “The dog can bark at the moon all night long but
LeBron James has been more vocal about topics beyond basketball this offseason—most notably his criticisms of President Donald Trump—and it seems that’s by design. GQ magazine dropped a story about James on Tuesday, the opening day of the NBA’s regular season, that follows the Cleveland Cavalier superstar throughout a series of offseason meetings and events. The article sketches the 32-year-old as he looks toward his post-NBA life and relinquishes the identity of perhaps the best athlete in the world. James’ willingness to take on Trump, whom the star famously called a “bum” on Twitter, hints he’s after something bigger than just basketball.
President Trump lashed out on Twitter against the Florida congresswoman who said he told a soldier’s widow that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for,’ saying she “fabricated” the account. “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump wrote on the social messaging site on Tuesday. Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democrat, said she was riding in the car with Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger along with three other comrades, when she got
