British Scientist Solves Global Warming Mystery
Vol: 111 Issue: 31 Friday, December 31, 2010
The Washington Post is cheering a decision by the Obama administration to ignore the Congress and to impose cap and trade regulations by decree.
“Congress hasn’t passed a sensible, comprehensive energy policy. EPA regulation of greenhouse gases is one way the government can cut emissions now, using current law. Over the next year, the president should defend his administration’s authority to do so.”
How’s that again? Since the Congress, totally controlled by Democrats, refused to enact legislation, it should be imposed by the White House whether the public likes it or not?
Welcome to the first hint of what the Obama administration has prepared for 2011. The Washington Post is titled its piece, “2011 – The “Year of the EPA“. So much for the will of the people.
“With the Supreme Court’s blessing, the EPA has deemed greenhouse emissions threats to public health under the Clean Air Act. That means the agency can require emitters to arrest those gases’ release in various ways. What the EPA will force plant operators to do, though, isn’t yet clear.”
When it comes to global warming, NOTHING is clear. I believe that’s by design.
For example, according to a purportedly scientific study by the British Royal Society, the sun has no bearing on global warming. Let me repeat that. The sun has no bearing on global warming.
That statement is so transparently false that I’m tempted to repeat it one more time and end the briefing right here. Where does one begin?
Let’s start with the Royal Society. The Royal Society’s full name is the Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge.
One of the ways that the Society has been ‘improving’ scientific knowledge is by suppressing any science that contradicts the conclusion that global warming is the result of human activity.
Indeed, the study by the Royal Society cited by the BBC was initiated in response to the documentary broadcast, The Great Global Warming Swindle that exposed the shady science and cooked data behind global warming alarmism.
“This should settle the debate,” said Mike Lockwood, from the UK’s Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory, who carried out the new analysis together with Claus Froehlich from the World Radiation Center in Switzerland.”
This should “settle” the debate? Good heavens! I thought that the debate was settled. The global warming alarmists say that human activity is responsible for global warming. Anybody that says differently is an idiot.
Pay no attention to the record-shattering cold that began when the sun went into one of the least active solar minimums in history. Pay no attention to the British government’s confident prediction that, due to global warming, the Continent would enjoy a mild winter.
They have been predicting it for three years running. Odds are that eventually they will be right, in much the same way a broken clock is right twice a day.
The year 2007, it predicted, would be “the warmest ever” – just before global tempratures plunged by more than the entire net warming of the 20th century, Three years running it predicted warmer than average winters – as large parts of the northern hemisphere endured record cold and snowfalls. Last year’s “barbecue summer” was the third time running that predictions of a summer drier and warmer than average prefaced weeks of rain and cold. Last week (January, 2010) the Met Office was again predicting that 2010 will be the “warmest year” on record, while Europe and the US look to be facing further weeks of intense cold.
What is not generally realized is that the UK Met Office has been, since 1990, at the very centre of the campaign to convince the world that it faces catastrophe through global warming. (Its website now proclaims it to be “the Met Office for Weather and Climate Change”.)
I thought weather was climate change.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)
There are certain facts about global warming that actually are “settled science.”
1.) The “Hockey Stick” temperature graph relied on by the global warming True Believers is a fraud and alleged improvements to the graph by the IPCC are a deliberate fraud.
2.) Higher temperatures have historically driven CO2 levels higher and not the other way around, destroying the rationale behind reducing so-called ‘greenhouse gas’ emissions. The claim that CO2 levels drive temperatures higher is a deliberate fraud.
3.) During the 1990s during one of the most intensely active solar maximum periods in history, temperatures warmed slightly on Earth. Similar warming was measured on Mars, Venus and even Pluto.
4.) Global warming alarmists have cooked the data, ignored or denied conflicting data, and have systematically and deliberately lied to the public in order to advance the global warming agenda, which is, of course, global governance.
Despite the total lack of evidence to support it, the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency is preparing for an end-run around Congress by imposing cap-and-trade regulations by decree after Congress rejected it.
The Congress rejected it despite the overwhelming majority held by Democrats at the time. The EPA therefore has no actual authority to regulate mythical greenhouse gas emissions, like the CO2 that trees convert into oxygen we breathe and convert back into CO2 — so the trees can breathe in CO2 and breathe out oxygen.
Without nitrogen, another alleged greenhouse gas that the EPA wants to regulate, nothing could grow. If the EPA were to be completely successful, the question would be whether we’d run out of food first? Or air?
What I find astonishing is the number of liberal newspaper editorials defending the EPA decision to ignore the wishes of a majority Democrat Congress. The Houston Chronicle is enraged that the state of Texas refuses to be governed by decree from Washington and is fighting the EPA.
In summary, then, the situation is like this. For most of the 21st century, temperature averages have been falling, not rising. The past couple of winters have been among the most brutal in living memory.
The sun, which had been unusually active during the late 80s and 90’s, entered into an unusually quiet solar minimum and the temperatures began to fall, prompting the British Royal Society to make the indescribably inane statement that the sun has no effect on global warming.
Really? Then why is it warmer at noon than it is at midnight?)
The global warming hoax has provided governments with a blank check to impose pretty much anything they choose, with or without public approval, by slapping a climate change label on it.
Even as another blizzard is screaming across the Midwest before NYC has even been able to plow and reopen many of its own roads, the EPA is crying ”greenhouse gases” and “global warming” and telling the public to pay no attention to the science.
As we close the books on 2010 and the EPA prepares to implement new regulations to prevent global warming, this just crossed the wires.
It’s snowing in Phoenix.
