More Global Warming BS

As I was perusing the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation this morning, I came upon this article and the following paragraph jumped off the page.

Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels. At current emission levels, global temperatures are likely to rise by about 2 degrees by midcentury and about 7.5 degrees by the end of the century, according to an international panel of scientists.

Where to start? There is no proof that man has anything to do with global warming. Nada! Zip! The debate is not over. Pope Albert I of the Church of AGW refuses to debate anyone on this. If he is so sure he is correct why will he not debate? Oh, I know. He has adopted the Catholic Church's doctrine of Papal Infallibility.

Then the author states that temperatures will rise 2.5 degrees by mid-century and 7.5 degrees by the end of the century. This is purely alarmist bullshit.

And the article continues in a weeping vein about how with global warming minorities and the poor will be the hardest hit. Sounds like sumpin' straight out of the New York Times: Global Warming Occurs ... Poor and Minorities Hardest Hit.

The most vulnerable Americans - the poor, elderly, sick, very young and immigrants - will suffer more, said Kristie Ebi, the lead author of the health sections of the report and a private public health consultant. That's at least 10 percent of the country's population, probably more, she said.

Boo Freaking Hoo! Did she take into account the poor and homeless in northern cities who will not freeze to death because it will be warmer?

I wish one of these fear mongers would tell us just what the ideal temperature is for the planet. It was warmer 1000 years ago and the human race somehow survived then.

Speaking of the pope, he gave a speech yesterday.

Sydney, Australia - Pope Benedict XVI said Thursday mankind's "insatiable consumption" has scarred the Earth and squandered its resources, telling followers that taking care of the planet is vital to humanity.

Ooops! Wrong pope. I meant Pope Albert.

Washington - Former Vice President Al Gore called Thursday for a "man on the moon" effort to switch all of the nation's electricity production to wind, solar and other carbon-free sources within 10 years, a goal that he said would solve global warming as well as economic and natural security crises caused by dependence on fossil fuels.

Poof PFM!

That's what it would take to do what the pope wants us to do. He better be including nuclear power in that plan because wind and solar ain't gonna cut it. Have you ever driven by windmills in California? Have you ever noticed that more than half of them aren't turning? Even on windy days?

Gore's proposal would represent a significant shift in where the United States gets its power. In 2005, coal supplied slightly more than half the nation's 3.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity. Nuclear power accounted for 21 percent, natural gas 15 percent and renewable sources, including wind and solar, about 8.6 percent.

So this is about the point where a miracle occurs to get rid of all of those coal fired plants and replace them with windmills and solar arrays. All of this in ten years without destroying our economy. Fortunately, Jug Hussein Ears will be elected and the Obamessiah will make the oceans recede and create miracle electricity.

Poof PFM!

Sad to say, McRINO buys into this crap.

McCain supports building more nuclear power plants as one solution to global warming.

Of the goals Gore outlined Thursday for generating more electricity with solar and wind resources, McCain said: "If the vice president says it's doable, I believe it's doable."

Sorry to say McRINO, that you ain't gonna be the one to do it. It's Jug Hussein Ears who will perform that miracle.

Poof PFM!

Doug Ross is all over this. Did you know that Pople Albert I, that great environmentalist, arrived in a convoy of two Lincoln Town Cars and a Suburban SUV? And one of the Lincolns was kept idling to keep the A/C on for the pope's wife and daughter?

I might consider taking this stuff seriously if Pope Albert showed how much he believed in this bullshit by setting an example rather than being an energy hog. Just one of his mansions uses twelve tiomes the energy of an average American family. He's a phony evangelist who is selling a pile of steaming crap and there are enough stupid people in the world who are buying it.

Read the latest bad news for the Global Warming faithful at NewsBusters. Apparently the ice in the artic is not only not going to disappear this year as previously reported...there is actually more of it than last year.

Duh, excuse me! But if the earth is "warming" up, wouldn't this mean we could grow more crops due to a longer growing and harvest season, which in turn would mean more food available for the "Poor" and the "Hungry"?

You're certianly right about the evangelist part. Ol' Al is is the Elmer Gantry of the environmental movement. Be assured Ol' Al is well invested in the companies that develop alternative enegry sources. Spread the panic and the sh*theads in congress will pour billions into those companies to "speed" development irregardless of the market forces which should dictate such things. Ol' Al will suck the taxpayer dry and laugh all the way to the bank.
This environmental sh*t is a racket that makes Enron look like childs play.
I simply can't believe McCain is buying into this crap. The man spends half his time sucking up to liberals and the rest of his time sh*tting on his base. They say Obama's arrogant. McCain could give him lessons.
Just a thought.

the one remedy for "poor" that has been proven over time is capitalism. look how captialism (outsourcing) has lifted the poor in our time. look at korea, china, etc. Now look at Cuba, Africa, and North Korea.

Monopolizing cheap power by those who have it (coal, oil, natural gas) is the ultimate fuck you to the poor. I'm Catholic and I believe in a hell. I believe there is a special warm corner reserved for those high minded control freaks that condemn these people to more generations of poverty.

You guys are nuts. This Global Warming is real.

Just 6 months ago I was going outdoors in insulated leather with a sweat-shirt underneath.

Today, I'm melting in cutoffs and a T-shirt.
That's 50 degrees in half a year.

My Goose is gonna be cooked by Christmas. Yhaaa

Save the world. Buy some "Carbon Offsets" before
it's too late. I have a couple left. Fifty cents
each. No minimum order. $1.00 Postage and Handeling on orders under 1000.

Remember, all this is your fault.

Take care of your bloody mess. Global Warming is not the Canadians' fault. We never do anything wrong. We never do anything. Period.

The Medieval Climate Optimum (or so it was called before panicky GW acolytes began renaming it--check Wikipedia for the latest version, it changes day to day) was in fact a fabulous period for humanity as far as we can tell from written records from the entire civilized world.
Cold periods, on the other hand, have lead to such jollies as the Dark Ages and the fall of the Ming Dynasty, just off the top of my head.

"Have you ever noticed that more than half of them aren't turning?"

I think they're trying to conserve energy so they turn them off :) Sorry, couldn't resist.

Two questions for these nitwits-

1. If we can project temperatures and weather well into the future, why is the weatherman's accuracy so bad beyond 72 hours?

2. What happens to the Earth's climate if we draw the energy OUT of the wind with wind turbines, thereby turning wind into, um, non-wind?

Starting my own country is looking better and better...Atlas Shrugged anyone?

this is a link to a video taken outside al gore's pontification. shows those lincolns and suburban. priceless

Ole al got me to worryin about my methane. I think I will save it up and ship it off to him. Him and Tipper can have a blast.

The reason the wind turbines aren't spinning is because it costs too much to fix them. A friend works for a windmill blade mfr. The crane used to hoist the generator and blades into position costs $600,000 per week. If a windmill needs that kind of repair the costs can't be justified.

At some point in our future we will have huge fields of stationary windmill "sculpture gardens". It's too bad because it is nice to use the wind, but ...

I just love the "Windmills" in Holland...they are so beautiful ...I wish I had one near my home!!!!
and the energy they produce...

I see the state of Alaska is on course for the lowest average summer temperature in some 40 years.....At least the excess polar bear population is happy.
