West Coast warming linked to naturally occurring changes

californiaNaturally occurring changes in winds, not human-caused climate change, are responsible for most of the warming on land and in the sea along the West Coast of North America over the last century, a study has found.

The analysis challenges assumptions that the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been a significant driver of the increase in temperatures observed over many decades in the ocean and along the coastline from Alaska to California.

Changing wind patterns - and not global warming - are causing temperatures to rise on America's West Coast according to new study

Oregon Coast wikipedia copyIncreased temperatures on America's West Coast are not a result of human-caused climate change, but rather naturally occurring wind changes according to a new study.

The 1 degree Fahrenheit of warming that has been recorded on the coast of the northwest Pacific Ocean is due to weaker winds and changing ocean circulation, not a buildup of greenhouse gasses.

These weaker winds accounted for more than 80% of the warming trend along the Pacific Northwest coast between Washington and Northern California, and 60% of the warming in Southern California.

Obama Announces Executive Actions to Fight Climate Change at UN

obama at UNPresident Obama announced a series of executive actions to fight climate change on Tuesday, during a speech to the United Nations Climate Summit in New York City.

Obama ordered all federal agencies to begin factoring “climate resilience” into all of their international development programs and investments.

The action is expected to complement efforts by the federal government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to the White House.

Obama is also expected to release climate monitoring data used by the federal government to developing nations.

Damp Squib In New York As China Procrastinates On Climate Commitments

unclimatesummitThe UN Climate Summit shows little has changed in China’s thinking on climate change. Despite a prediction by Xinhua that Zhang would “expound China’s bold measures [in emissions reductions] after 2020,” he effectively kicked the can down the road by saying that China would announce its post-2020 actions as soon as possible. Without concrete commitments, China’s promise to reduce carbon intensity and the share of fossil fuels rings somewhat hollow. Zhang’s speech reflects the general pessimism that accompanied the news of Xi Jinping’s absence from the summit. The world will likely have to wait for China’s 13th Five Year Plan (to be adopted in 2016) to see just how serious Xi’s government is about climate change. --Shannon Tiezzi, The Diplomat, 24 September 2014

Mountain Of Trash Left Behind By Hypocrite Global Warmer Climate Kooks

capitalism bad signMore proof that Climate Kooks don't give a [crap] about the environment. All the Goebbel Warmer mumbo-jumbo is all about the Communist Agenda.

Hundreds-of-thousands of climate crusaders marched in NYC on Sunday to urge action on “climate change.” Check out the trail of TRASH they left and the tweets of people calling these HYPOCRITES out.

Do you think these climate protesters should practice what they preach?

Climate Marchers Leave Trail of Trash EVERYWHERE. Check Out the Top Tweets…

Somehow, I think we all knew it might end up this way… Climate crusaders love to talk a big game. There’s nothing like wasting a bunch of resources making catchy signs and driving to an event on fossil fuels to crusade with the rest of weekend environmentalists who talk boldly about the need for everybody else to save the planet from the dreaded “global warming”… or is it “climate change?” …

Some Useful FACTS About Global Warming and Climate Change

socialismThanks to Sunday’s Climate March in New York and Tuesday’s Climate Summit at the United Nations, Americans and others will  have been deluged with the lies that have been told to sustain this greatest of all hoaxes.

Here are the known facts. Use them to protect yourself against the Green assault the truth:

• Both the Earth and the Sun pass through natural cycles. The Sun is currently in a cycle of lower radiation as signaled by fewer sunspots representing magnetic storms.

• There is currently no global warming. The Earth has been in a cooling cycle for 19 years. No child who has passed through K-12 classes in school has experienced a single day of “global warming.”

Politically Left Scientist Dissents – Calls President Obama ‘delusional’ on global warming

RossiterRossiterAs President Obama attends the UN Summit climate summit in New York City, a fellow member of his Democratic Party, who is also a scientist, is publicity renouncing the Presidents climate change claims as “delusional.” Rossiter reversed his view on man-made climate change and now says belief in a climate catastrophe is “simply not logical.”

Climate Statistics Professor Dr. Caleb Rossiter of American University, is an outspoken anti-war activist, has a flawless progressive record on a range of political issues – and he is a climate skeptic.  Rossiter is a former Democratic congressional candidate and he campaigned against U.S. backed wars in Central America and Southern Africa.

World’s 6th Largest Newspaper Displays DiCaprio’s Hypocrisy…”Private Jets” and “Luxury Mega-Yachts”

Leonardo DiCaprio boarding his private jetLeonardo DiCaprio boarding private jet.Online German daily Bild, the world’s sixth largest daily in print by circulation, reported on the climate demonstration in New York and on the stars who appeared, foremost Leonardo DiCaprio.

At first Bild describes the event as the “largest climate demonstration of all time” and how the event drew more than 300,000 in New York, making it sound impressive.

But then Bild pours cold water on the noble planet rescue attempt and made it look like one hijacked by big Hollywood publicity seekers, and making star Di Caprio look like a hypocrite for demanding climate action while living a lavish life of luxury, mega-yachts, private jets and limousines.

How President Obama has increased our energy costs

cartoon-obama-pipelineThe Institute for Energy Research (IER) has just released a report documenting “actions President Obama has taken to increase energy prices and to increase the costs of cars, trucks, appliances, ice makers, and a multitude of other items that use electricity.” The list covers the period from February, 2009, to September, 2014. The full list (available here) extends for 13 pages and provides links to individual actions. Here is a sampling from the list:

February 4, 2009

Cancelled 77 oil and gas leases in Utah that could cost American taxpayers millions in lost lease bids, production royalties, new jobs and the energy needed to offset rising imports of oil and gas.

If Climate Change Deniers Are 'Bonkers', What Does that Make Emma 'Mother of Gaia' Thompson?

ThompsonActress Emma Thompson, arguably best known for her Best Actress Oscar in Howards End and for her courage in naming her daughter Gaia, has declared that anyone who doesn't believe in climate change is "bonkers".

Ms Thompson was speaking in London yesterday at one of the People's Climate March events organised around the world to raise awareness of the urgent need to hike taxes, drive up energy bills, kill jobs, and enrich billionaire green investors like Al Gore and Tom Steyer in order to combat the illusory threat of catastrophic man-made global warming.

"Unless we're carbon free by 2030 the world is buggered," Ms Thompson claimed, apparently unaware that the trace gas carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of almost every industrial process and that if anyone took her prescription seriously then Western Civilisation would be brought grinding to a halt and the world would indeed be "buggered."

Give it Back to Climate Alarmists

cartoon-its-called-weatherThrough the centuries, something resembling science — articulated by bespectacled, lettered, elitist academics — has been used to engineer desired societal ends. Call it pseudo or junk science. Call it fraud. Call it whatever you want. A segment of the scientific community is politically driven, so much so that science is no longer a search for truth, but a quest for a “preferred” truth.

The marriage of science with an ulterior motive is nothing new. Big tobacco, back in the 1950’s, hired some scientists of their own to discredit a growing body of solid research showing the health dangers of smoking. They, too, arrived at their own preferred truth, which conveniently helped prevent a decline in sales.

What's with Kerry and Climate Change?

kerry johnIt’s not enough that John Kerry's diplomatic plate is overcrowded with unpalatable menaces like ISIS/ISIL and an epidemic of Ebola that could mushroom to pandemic proportions.  As busy as Kerry is, flying around the globe and assembling a coalition of supporters to push back against a terrorist group more vicious and well-funded than any in recent history, he still manages to get his licks in about global warming. 

In a recent speech before an assemblage of foreign ministers, he urged that the threat of climate change must be addressed with the same ”immediacy” as terrorism and Ebola.  The same immediacy?  I hadn’t noticed that this administration has been rushing to take any “immediate” measures with those concerns, either.
