This impressive piece of research makes a significant contribution to a growing body of evidence that both the global extent of the Medieval Warm Period, and the temperature was similar, or even greater than the Current Warm Period, even though the atmospheric CO2 concentrations today are some 40% greater than they were during the MWP. --David Whitehouse, The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 17 October 2012
Pumping oil in North DakotaGovernor Mitt Romney strongly supports North American energy independence as the foundation of renewed US employment and prosperity. President Obama is waging war on fossil fuels, job creation, and efforts to end our economic recession and reduce dependence on Middle Eastern and Russian oil.
Romney’s emphasis on careful analysis and due diligence brought him and Bain Capital notable winners like AMC Entertainment, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Domino’s Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts and Staples. Obama’s focus on ideology, political calculation, cronyism and campaign contributors produced scandalous losers like A123, Abound Solar, Crescent Dunes, Ener1, Fisker, Mountain Plaza, Solyndra, Tesla, and a host of wind and biofuel projects that would collapse if their taxpayer subsidies were cut off.
After this latest announcement from über-warmist Christiana Figueres of the U.N., the only sound you hear are crickets chirping. Not only have people pushed global warming to the bottom of what concerns them the most, the temperature data simply isn't comporting to all the doom-and-gloom prophecies. From phys.org:
Governments are "not on track" to achieve a target of keeping the average global temperature rise below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the UN climate chief said Thursday.
Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), told a forum in Singapore that the world was moving in the right direction, but not fast enough.
You really have to love grants. Stick the words 'consequences of climate change' somewhere in your proposal, and it'll get rubber-stamped. From the Independent Record:
A University of Montana scientist was recently awarded a National Science Foundation grant and believes his research into the effects of elevation and climate change on tropical birds will inform science’s understanding of how those species survive in a warming world.
Tom Martin leads the study, which is called “Dimensions: Collaborative Research — Historical and Contemporary Influences on Elevational Distributions and Biodiversity Tested in Tropic Asia.” It was recently backed by a $2 million National Science Foundation grant, and has partners from the Smithsonian Institution, the University of Kansas and Louisiana State University.
…here’s what I’ve done since I’ve been president. We have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. Natural gas production is the highest it’s been in decades.
We have seen increases in coal production and coal employment.

Translation, he failed to bankrupt the coal industry like he promised.
