The Stupid Weather Still Won’t Cooperate with the Leftist’s Global Warming Science
By: Jim Byrd
In another calamitous blow to the global warming church, the highly anticipated National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA), which is part of the Commerce Department, had to cancel their global altering press conference about man-made global warming in Washington D.C. because of an unprecedented winter storm that has shut D.C. and the federal government down. Alas, all is not lost; they will hold their press conference via telephone, God willing the snow and ice does not disable the telephone system.
The gist of the meeting according to the NOAA press release:
â€œMore and more, Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards, including sea-level rise, longer growing seasons, changes in river flows, increases in heavy downpours, earlier snowmelt and extended ice-free seasons in our waters. People are searching for relevant and timely information about these changes to inform decision-making about virtually all aspects of their lives.”
It is interesting to consider the information the NOAA decided to leave out regarding the weather and climate: anomalous winter storms around the world, a trend towards globally cooler temperatures for the past decade, atmospheric CO2 and temperatures lower than during the medieval era, the decline of the earth’s temperatures between 1940 and 1980, and during the 1970′s, the same global scientists wringing their hands about the impending cooling of the earth and the devastation it would wreak upon mankind if the earth did not start warming.
But fear not, NOAA spokesman, Justin Kenny, is happy. Kenny states that, “NOAA is happy to have a chance to educate people about the difference between the climate and the weather. Education is well needed in this arena.”
Clarification please: if the earth has been cooling for the past decade, and winter storms are coming earlier each year and are more severe, is that the weather or the climate? I am going to take a stab in the dark and say the earth is cooling, not warming. My untrained and anecdotal logic: Fact, the earth has been cooling for a decade; fact, for the past ten years there has been an increase in aberrant winter storms around the globe; fact, various places around the globe are either receiving snow for the first time in many decades, or are receiving snow earlier than any time on record; fact, the more prominent American and British climate scientists had almost the entirety of their man-made global warming science indicted as a first-rate counterfeit ring by thousands of hacked emails substantiating their deception.
And let’s not forget the granddaddy of all global warming summits in Copenhagen, Denmark, which was decimated by winter storm. Denmark has a maritime climate that lends itself to mild winters. But for the first time in 14 years, Denmark had a white Christmas, as the temperature plummeted to an unprecedented 25 degrees Fahrenheit and dumped 4 inches of snow on the city. This was of the utmost inconvenience for the 1200 limousines and 140 private jets that dumped their CO2 across the globe en-route to Copenhagen to save the planet.
Does a decade constitute weather or does it constitute climate? Here is a list from the examiner.com :
â€¢ January 15, 2004 â€“ A global warming rally held in New York is subdued by one of the coldest days in New York City history. Gore tells the audience it was caused by global warming.
â€¢ November, 2006 â€“ Al Gore visits Australia two weeks before the start of summer. Ski resort operators are caught off guard by the snowfall.
â€¢ February, 2007 â€“ A hearing in the House of Representatives on global warming is cancelled after a snow and ice storm strike DC.
â€¢ April, 2007 â€“ Two feet of snow arrive on Itaca, NY in time for an Earth Day rally.
â€¢ April, 2007 â€“ A rally in Reno, Nevada held by the Northern Nevada Coalition for Climate Change is cut short by heavy rain and sleet.
â€¢ March, 2007 â€“ A media briefing on the Senateâ€™s climate bill is cancelled due to a snowstorm.
â€¢ December 5, 2007 â€“ Washington DC receives its first snow of the season as the Senateâ€™s Environment and Public Works Committee debates global warming legislation.
â€¢ January, 2008 â€“ A global warming rally in Baltimore, Maryland is held amidst falling snow.
â€¢ October 22, 2008 â€“ Al Gore appears at Harvard amidst temperatures that approached 125 year old low temperature records.
â€¢ October 28, 2008 â€“ The House of Commons debates a climate change bill as London gets its first October snow since 1922.
â€¢ October 28, 2008 â€“ John McCain and Barack Obama campaign in Pennsylvania. A wet, wintry mix causes McCain to cancel a rally while Obama goes forward. He teases people holding â€˜stop global warmingâ€™ signs saying, “This is probably not the weather to hold up those signs. I’m not into global warming either but it’s a little chilly today.”
â€¢ November, 2008 â€“ The â€œPeopleâ€™s Power for the Climateâ€ protest in Newcastle, Australia is canceled after one day due to rain and cold. Participants had been told to bring sunscreen and hats.
â€¢ December, 2008 â€“ The former vice president speaks to an audience in Milan, Italy about global warming. Outside it is snowing, a rare event in the area. Snow and freezing rain also strike Rome, Naples, Palermo and Sicily.
â€¢ January 17, 2009 â€“ President-elect Obama on his train tour to the capital stops in Philadelphia. He tells those gathered, â€œA planet that is warming from our unsustainable dependence on oil.” Temperatures were 18 degrees with a wind chill below 10 degrees.
â€¢ January 28, 2009 â€“ Al Gore is set to testify to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about global warming. A winter storm arrives at the nationâ€™s capital.
â€¢ February 5, 2009 â€“ Temperatures down to -6 degrees freeze a major global warming conference in Buffalo.
â€¢ March 2, 2009 â€“ A major global warming rally billed as â€œthe nationâ€™s largest act of civil disobedienceâ€ sees low turnout after a blizzard blanketed the nationâ€™s capital with snow. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi cancels an appearance at the event after her flight was delayed due to the storm.
â€¢ July, 2009 â€“ Leading up to a visit from Al Gore to launch Safe Climate Australia, Melbourne suffers through temperatures approaching zero degrees.
â€¢ October 9, 2009 â€“ Al Gore is in Madison, Wisconsin for a convention of the Society of Environmental Journalists. Record cold temperatures arrive with him.
â€¢ March 2, 2009 â€“ Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had to cancel an appearance Monday at a global warming rally in Washington, D.C., that was hit by a snowstorm because her flight was delayed, her office told CNSNews.com.
â€¢ December 24, 2009 â€“ Copenhagen Climate Summit ravaged by unusual winter storm.
â€¢ February 10, 2010 â€“ NOAA forced to hold press conference by phone due to unprecedented D.C. winter storm.
Perhaps if I look at man-made global warming through the same prism that Obama looks through to determine the state of the U.S. economy, I would see the light: the more debt he can pile on the country, and the higher he can make the deficit of the United States, and the more people that are unemployed, then apparently, the better, as just last week Obama told us so: “We are seeing the corner turn on the economy growing again.” So with that logic, the colder it gets, the warmer it must be getting. Makes sense to me.
