The area south of Buffalo, New York, was buried this week in 76 inches of snow, quite possibly the largest 24-hour total in U.S. recorded history. At the same time, the desperate advocates of global warming/climate change are finding more novel ways to push their carbon dioxide reduction and carbon footprint taxation in order to redistribute the wealth from the United States to the rest of the world.
David Ignatius suggests in the Washington Post that climate should be treated as a "moral issue – a matter like civil rights." His idea of "treating climate change as an ethical problem" might succeed in convincing climate deniers that taxing them to death would solve the faux global warming problem. (Washington Post, November 19, 2014)
Unsure of a planetary Armageddon future, an "Endarkenment," in light of skeptics armed with a "truckload of studies to demonstrate the opposite," Ignatius suggests, "The safe (and conservative) course is to assume the worst."
Ignatius concludes that global warming/climate change is a moral issue when "the quality of life around the world is at stake," and "people who resist action are not just misguided, they're wrong."
Even though we are using more natural gas, this administration is shutting down coal-powered plants through impossible regulations, destroying the coal industry, making an unconstitutional agreement with China's ruler Xi Jinping to reduce our CO2 emissions, the gas of life considered by the United Nations and the EPA a "pollutant." This unconstitutional agreement which the U.S. Senate has not ratified was signed by President Obama in order to solve "climate change" by Executive fiat, forcing a cut of 25 percent of 2005 CO2 levels by 2025, causing Americans a lot of economic hardship and rationing.
Communist China which produces the highest levels of carbon emissions in the world, will only force their citizens to stop 'increasing' their CO2 output by 2030 and use more renewables, eventually. If China follows through, it would be a miracle.
Knowing how polluted China is and how difficult it is to breathe the air in Beijing on most days, the statement of U.N. climate chief and executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christina Figueres, that China is better prepared to fight "global warming," is laughable.
John L. Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, wrote "Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell," warning about a radical shift in global climate due to reduced activity in solar flares, causing a fast cooling of the earth. Temperatures will be similar to those observed during the "solar minimum" in the Middle Ages which lasted for 300 years and ended in early 1800s. It is painfully evident when we take into account the bitter cold fronts, early winters, short and cooler summers, and last year's winter, "one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record."
Dr. Klaus L. E. Kaiser described in his latest article the colorful NASA computer simulations of CO2 in the world's air seen on the National Geographic website.
While visually arresting, the swirls are just pretty pictures. Dr. Kaiser explains that the swirls are produced by a computer model, similar to 50 other computer models created by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), all of which were wrong because they did not predict the 18-year "warming pause."
Dr. Kaiser says, "The narrative of the video is self-destroying the claims to the 'global warming' theory of CO2. It claims (and shows) the highest concentrations of CO2 over the northern polar (Arctic) fringe of the simulation – in the depth of winter. Then in summer the CO2 in the northern air returns to normal levels due to photosynthesis converting it to biomass both on land and in the sea." If there truly was a greenhouse gas effect of CO2, Dr. Kaiser explains, it "would be most noticeable in the Arctic winter."
"What do the swirls show that isn't obvious? With most of the world's population living in the northern hemisphere and most of the world's consumption of carbon-based fuels also there, should it be a surprise to anyone to see more carbon dioxide in the air over the northern than the southern hemisphere?"
What is morally repugnant to real scientists and logical thinkers are the lies and deceptions surrounding the manufactured global warming crisis created for political and financial gain at the expense of millions of people around the globe who must suffer the consequences of treaties, laws, rules, and regulations controlling their lives and economic activity so that a small number of global elites can enrich their bank accounts.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
