Climate Hoax: A Convenient Lie Feed

Der Spiegel 1974 – New Ice Age Approaching. Odds Of A Warm Future “At Best 1 in 10,000″

An increased frequency in extreme weather events, a cooling North Atlantic, and growing Arctic sea ice were viewed as signs of climate change. The odds of a warmer climate in the future, according to one scientist, were “at best 1 in 10,000″ (see below). That’s what Der Spiegel wrote about in a 3700-word article back in 1974, warning the world of a coming ice age.

In that issue Der Spiegel described a series of ”weather extremes” occurring all over the world, claiming they were unmistakable signs of a climate change to cooling: deluges of rain in West Germany, severe thunderstorms that uprooted trees and blew off roofs in Berlin, the worst storm in 100 years devastating much of Lower Saxony, hurricane Agnes inflicting 3 billion dollars in damage, floods in Japan and Peru, temperatures in Argentina, India and South Africa dropping to their lowest levels in 300 years.

Back in 1974, in its introduction, Der Spiegel wrote:

What the Weather Channel and MSM don't admit-Hurricanes have been worse in the past

Don't believe the hype about Climate change, global warming, and the deadliness hurricane garbage that you are assaulted with daily in the media.  Take a look....  Also remember before the 1960's we didn't even have satellites and ways to measure some storms, and we didn't have 10 million people in harm's way building on ocean beaches. Remember that thing about 'building your houses on sand?"  Jesus knew what would happen 2,000 years ago!

Of course, it probably won’t shut them up. So make sure you have a copy of the Index of Leading Environmental Indicators: 2008 report written by Stephen F. Hayward at the Pacific Research Institute.

The difficulty of accurately measuring average temperatures around the globe and across the United States has helped fuel the conflicting claims regarding climate change.

Purveyors of the belief that mankind is catastrophically impacting the global climate insist it's getting warmer year by year.

'Global warming is a religion, not a science'

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comLike evolution, global warming is not science, but a pagan inspired religion of mother earth worship. Don't be fooled, both pseudo-scioences are in fact a carefully crafted plot to take away your freedoms and to enslave you to a Satan led world government.

Sky News host Andrew Bolt has hit out at the Opposition, arguing that everything about 'Labor's global warming policy is a con' as thousands rally around the world calling for climate change action. Mr Bolt says global warming 'is a religion, not a science' and insists climate protestors are just repeating 'the old religious cry of repent, for the end of the world is nigh'.

The remarks come as several large scale climate change protests take place around the globe. Former Greens leader Bob Brown is taking part in an anti-Adani convoy up Australia's east coast, while thousands of Extinction Rebellion activists rallying in London, causing disruptions and closing down parts of the city since demonstrations began on April 15. The Sky News host has labelled Labor leader Bill Shorten a fake trying to fix 'a fake climate crisis' with his own 'idiotic global warming plans'.

How much physical coal is required to produce enough electricity to power the average electric vehicle

Michael Barnard
Michael Barnard, Low-carbon Innovation Strategist
Originally Answered: How much physical coal is required to produce enough electricity to power the average electric vehicle (tesla, volt, etc) for 300 miles?

First off, the standard statement: no grid is 100% coal generation and pretty much all new demand these days reduces the percentage of coal generation on a grid.

That said, let's break it down:

  • A 2012 Tesla Model S with the 85 KWH battery pack has an EPA rated range of 265 miles. Tesla Model S
  • Very little math tells us that 300 miles would require about 96 KWH.
  • "Since coal has a heat value of 20,000 kJ/kg, for producing one KWH we require (10765 / 20000) 0.538 kg of coal. " How to Calculate the Coal Quantity Used in a Power Plant
  • 96 KWH would require, once again through simple math, just under 52 KG of coal or about 114 pounds of coal.
  • Fortuitously, coal often comes in 50 kg sacks, allowing us to find a picture of someone carrying one for scale.

Mokete Phoka, 20-year-old, delivers a 50kg bag of coal in Soweto 17...

  • For comparison, gasoline weighs 2.83 kg or 6.25 lbs per US gallon, so 20 gallons would weigh about 57 kg or 125 pounds, slightly more than the coal. Of course, that's assuming a car that gets 15 miles per gallon which kind of sucks. Volume to Weight conversion Here's a guy filling up a bunch of five gallon cans with gas in preparation for a hurricane for comparison.

Nature magazine yanks global-warming study for 'systematic errors'

Nature magazine has retracted a study on so-called "global warming" that claimed humans were creating warming in the oceans.

"Climatology is littered with examples of bad statistics, going back to the infamous Hockey Stick graph and beyond," explained Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Forum. "Peer review is failing and it is falling to amateurs to find the errors. Scientists in the field should be embarrassed."

Authors of the study were R.F. Keeling, Y. Eddebbar and M.K. Brooks of Scripps Institution of Oceanography; R. Wang of China; L. Bopp of Paris; M.C. Long of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado; J.P. Dunne of NOAA; and W. Koeve and A. Oschlies of Germany.     MORE


Absolute PROOF that hurricanes are not caused by man made carbon or anything else we do!

Bob Barney

I am sick of the nonsense that the Democrats, most media figures and FAKE SCIENTIST spew to the American public about global warming... IT IS A LIE. They know it's a lie, but this is Satan's way of making you give up your freedom and surrender to him and his minions, and rejecting God in the process! It's about time that the American people wake up to the coming authoritarian rule that the Democrats want to bring to America. Under the guise of "climate change" these Democrats, and many Republicans too, want to take away your God given, constitutional rights.  They want to dictate to you what to think and where you go and what you can do.  WE ARE AT WAR, and the Democrats want most of you DEAD!   Do not be stupid.

CNN says hurricanes are because of global warming.  Read the graph below to see that they are LYING!  And by the way, when the talk about the damage today, they don't have a clue of the thousands of AMERICANS killed each year before modern satellites.

Take a look for yourselves- open your eyes! A note:  Up until the 1930's we did not have accurate wind readings.  So many hurricanes were underreported and not even known!  The #'s before them may be even HIGHER!   Wind speeds defiantly were

Global Warming or Bad Data? Garbage in...

SOURCE and Complete Article

Climate hoax
Al Gore likes to say that the science of climate change is “settled.” But of course, science, almost by definition, is never settled.

And climate science has always suffered from the problem of shaky and missing data. Seventy percent of the globe is covered by ocean, where data is hard to collect. Reliable weather records only go back to about 1850 and, in many parts of the world, are far more recent. Modern recording weather stations date only to the early 20th century.

And many of those stations have a big problem. While they haven’t changed appreciably over the years, the land around them has changed, often profoundly, with the great growth in urban and suburban areas. The weather station that was put, say, in the middle of a Nassau County, Long Island, potato field in 1923 is still in the same spot. But the potatoes are long gone, and now it’s behind a strip mall, twenty feet from the kitchen exhaust fan of a Chinese take-out joint.

A study by meteorologist Anthony Watts found that almost 90 percent of the 1221 weather stations in the U.S. did not meet the National Weather Service’s setting standards, which requires that they be at least 100 feet from any artificial heat source or radiating surface. You can see some of the most egregious violators here. To deal with this defective information, climate scientists, have “adjusted” the data to solve this problem. Invariably, these adjustments have made earlier data show lower temperatures, and recent data show higher ones.

To develop reliable data, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) placed 114 state-of-the-art weather stations relatively evenly spaced about the lower 48 states. They were carefully sited to be away from urban areas, which are heat islands, airports, which can be affected by jet exhaust, etc.

The system became operative in 2005. Now, realclearenergy.com is reporting that there has been no increase in average temperatures in the continental United States over the last 14 years, as measured by these new stations. If anything, overall temperatures are slightly cooler than they were.

One big reason for this lack of warming is surely the explosion in U.S. natural gas production, thanks to fracking. The U.S. is now, by far, the number-one producer of natural gas, producing 90 billion cubic feet a day, 25 percent more than second-place Russia. This has brought the price of natural gas to its lowest point in 20 years, which has resulted in a big shift from producing power by burning coal to burning natural gas, which produces 50 percent less carbon dioxide. (The shale gas revolution has vast geopolitical implications, of course, as well as climatic ones.)

As a result, the U.S. CO2 emissions are down to where they were in 1985–a third of a century ago, when the GDP was half what it is now in inflation-adjusted terms, and the population was smaller by a quarter. No other industrialized country has come anywhere close to reducing their emissions by so much.


Amazon Fires – A Big, Fat Nothingburger of a #FakeNews Scare Story

amazon
MAURO PIMENTEL/AFP/Getty Images

All this week, the mainstream media have been trying to scare you with heartrending tales of burning Amazonia — a conflagration the like of which we have never seen before. Supposedly…

A Washington Post story headlined ‘Bolsonaro, Trump, and the nationalists ignoring climate disaster’ quotes Vitor Gomes, an environmental scientist at the Federal University of Para:

“I cannot remember any other big fire episode like this one.”

According to the BBC:

Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has seen a record number of fires this year, new space agency data suggests.

The National Institute for Space Research (Inpe) said its satellite data showed an 84% increase on the same period in 2018.

According to NPR:  "Disaster Looms!"

But almost everything you have read or heard about the Amazon fires in the mainstream media is #FakeNews.

Like so many of the environmental scare stories which grip the world’s media periodically, it is a panic which has been deliberately and cynically stoked by left-leaning eco-activist groups for a number of purposes:

  1. To generate public hysteria in order to precipitate expensive and unnecessary government action which no sober cost benefit analysis could ever justify
  2. To raise ‘awareness’ — and, by extension, money — for the green cause
  3. To discredit conservatives, especially those who are properly sceptical of the green agenda, such as President Trump and his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro
  4. To reinforce in the popular imagination the notion that economic growth and expressions of national sovereignty — in this case the interests of Brazilian farmers — are intrinsically bad for the environment
  5. To promulgate the common received idea that the Amazon is the ‘lungs of the planet’ and therefore sacrosanct and inviolable in much the same manner as polar bears, glaciers, Pacific islands, the Great Barrier Reef, etc.
  6. To lend false credibility to the global left’s claim that the planet is experiencing a #ClimateEmergency
  7. To invoke the spectre of the Green New Deal and, by extension, to rain on the parade of Trump 2020
  8. To exploit the mainstream media’s insatiable demand for environmental scare stories, especially in the August “silly season” when there’s a shortage of real news

Shocking report reveals that 95% of plastic polluting the world's oceans comes from just TEN rivers

THE 10 MOST POLLUTING RIVERS

Yangtze East China Sea Asia

Indus Arabian Sea Asia

Yellow River Yellow Sea Asia

Hai He Yellow Sea Asia

Nile Mediterranean Africa

Ganges Bay of Bengal Asia

Pearl River South China Sea Asia

Amur Sea of Okhotsk Asia

Niger Gulf of Guinea Africa

Mekong South China Sea Asia 

Up to 95 per cent of plastic polluting the world's oceans pours in from just ten rivers, according to new research.

The top 10 rivers - eight of which are in Asia - accounted for so much plastic because of the mismanagement of waste.

About five trillion pounds is floating in the sea, and targeting the major sources - such as the Yangtze and the Ganges - could almost halve it, scientists claim.

The Myths of the GREEN DEAL and Climate Change

Climate hoax

Perhaps more than any other election in history, the promise of battling climate change has already taken center stage early in the 2020 presidential election cycle.  Democratic candidates have rallied around sweeping proposals such as the “Green New Deal,” with some candidates citing a recent U.N. study to suggest that the planet is just a dozen years (or less) away from guaranteed disaster.  It's all a lie, and they are exposed HERE


Doomsday prediction for surging tides was WRONG

Study claims ice-cliffs of Antarctica will be responsible for just a 6-inch boost in sea levels - SEVEN times less than previously thought (but it will still cause 'climate chaos')

Scroll down for video   

Predictions of an imminent and catastrophic surge in sea levels were incorrect and overestimated, a new study has found. The difference between the two predictions stems from disagreement as to how significant the melting of the Antarctic ice-cliffs (pictured) will be to global levels

Predictions of an imminent and catastrophic surge in sea levels were incorrect and overestimated, a new study has found. 

The difference between the two predictions stems from disagreement as to how significant the melting of the Antarctic ice-cliffs will be to global levels.

New research says there is only a five per cent chance that the Antarctic ice-cliff melting will contribute more than 15 inches (39 cm) to global sea levels by 2100.

Previous estimates stated it could contribute a huge 44 inches (1.14 metres) alone - more than seven times the revised value of between 5.5 - 6 inches (14 – 15 centimetres). 

The latest study found that, by the end of this century, global sea levels will rise by a grand total of less than four feet (120 cm), noticeably less dramatic than the doomsday predictions of a 2016 paper from US-based scientists that estimated it would exceed 6.5 feet (two metres).   

But, a separate study published by the same scientists found future generations still face a significant fallout from global warming and wilder weather due to 'climate chaos' - even if the previous doomsday prediction was inaccurate. 

Dr Tamsin Edwards, lecturer in physical geography at King's and lead author of the study published in Nature, said: 'Unstable ice cliffs in Antarctica were proposed as a cause of unstoppable collapse of large parts of the ice sheet in the past. 

'They were, therefore, also predicted to cause rapidly rising seas with global warming in our near future. But we've re-analysed the data and found this isn't the case.'  

This would take the combined total for sea level rise to a grand total of 47 inches (120 cm), far less than the previous estimate of more than two metres.

FOLLOW THE (CLIMATE CHANGE) MONEY

Climate hoax

The first iron rule of American politics is: Follow the money. This explains, oh, about 80 percent of what goes on in Washington.

Shortly after the latest “Chicken Little” climate change report was published last month, I noted on CNN that one reason so many hundreds of scientists are persuaded that the sky is falling is that they are paid handsomely to do so. I said, “In America and around the globe governments have created a multibillion dollar climate change industrial complex.” And then I added: “A lot of people are getting really, really rich off of the climate change industry.” According to a recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, “Federal funding for climate change research, technology, international assistance, and adaptation has increased from $2.4 billion in 1993 to $11.6 billion in 2014, with an additional $26.1 billion for climate change programs and activities provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009.”

The Plain Truth about Polar Bears and Global Warming

Why all you've been told about these polar bears could be WRONG: Inuits have a very

The bear pounced, and while his 12-year-old daughter desperately radioed for help, Aaron was mauled to death. His friend William Tiktaq, 32, told me: ‘That evening, I was in the party that recovered his body. I put a tarp on top of him in the boat, so the salt water wouldn’t get to him. He was badly mauled. There were bites everywhere. It’s not a sight you want to see.’ Six months later Aaron’s death, the first fatal attack by a polar bear in the Hudson Bay area for 19 years, is still a raw and emotional wound, described with sadness and horror by everyone I met. Its impact was intensified by a second mauling in August, when a mother bear and a cub attacked a group of three Inuit hunters near Naujaat, 500 miles to the north, killing Darryl Kaunak. Scared and exasperated by the threat the bears pose, some Inuit leaders are voicing a demand which, if granted, may trigger a global furore akin to Japan’s decision to resume commercial whaling. They want to be allowed to increase their permitted polar bear hunting quota to reduce numbers.


GREENWASHING AL GORE

Political cartoonist A.F. Branco had a very funny illustration a few days ago:

image: https://www.wnd.com/files/2018/12/12-31-18-A.F.-Branco.jpg

12-31-18 A.F. Branco

The reason this made me chuckle is because it reminds me of the behavior of that icon of the green movement, Al Gore, whose personal carbon footprint dwarfs whole towns and whose predilection for private jets is the butt of many jokes.

Gore’s environmental hypocrisy is well-documented. Criticism of the former vice president’s lifestyle goes back over a decade. A 2007 ABC article entitled “Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’? – A $30,000 Utility Bill” shocked supporters and critics alike.

“If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn’t care,” said the president of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research at the time. “But he tells other people how to live and he’s not following his own rules … he is not living the lifestyle that he advocates.”

Hilariously, the left sees attacks on Gore’s hypocrisy as unfounded. “I think what you’re seeing here is the last gasp of the global warming skeptics,” scoffed a former Gore adviser in response to criticism. “They’ve completely lost the debate on the issue so now they’re just attacking their most effective opponent.”

Most effective opponent? Really? Can’t you do any better than Gore as a spokesman for the green movement? People aren’t (necessarily) criticizing Gore because they’re climate change deniers; they’re legitimately criticizing him because he’s a hypocrite of the first order.

“While warning of the dire consequences if the rest of us don’t urgently dial back our energy consumption, Gore has not made those same sacrifices himself,” observes the Daily Signal.

Supporters will hastily assure us Gore’s 10,000 square foot home is “green” because he buys “carbon offsets.” How nice to know he’s excused from even pretending to follow his own advice because he’s rich enough to pay someone who claims they’re planting trees in Namibia.

NANCY PELOSI ANNOUNCES A HOUSE ‘CLIMATE CRISIS’ COMMITTEE AFTER FLYING THOUSANDS OF MILES TO A HAWAIIAN RESORT

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that Democrats would create a Select Committee on the Climate Crisis in 2019, which will be headed by Florida Democratic Rep. Kathy Castor.

However, Pelosi’s announcement isn’t placating progressives in her party, such as New York Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who support “Green New Deal” legislation.

“This committee, if it turns out that the rumors about it are true, sound about as useful as a screen door on a submarine,” Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent, told The Hill.

“As it’s portrayed it’s going to be completely incapable of solving the greatest threat to human kind,” Trent said.

Pelosi, who’s expected to be elected House speaker in 2019, said there’s “tremendous pressure” for Democrats to make fighting global warming a central part of their agenda in the new year.

Pelosi made her announcement amid a government shutdown after she flew thousands of miles to a luxurious Hawaiian hotel where she was spotted Thursday, according to reports(RELATED: Nancy Pelosi Vacations In Luxurious Hawaiian Resort Amid Government Shutdown)

The creation of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis is one way Pelosi plans on satisfying progressives without angering incoming committee chairs, like New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone, who want to advance their own climate bills.

“It is with great enthusiasm that I appoint Congresswoman Kathy Castor as the Chair of our new Select Committee on the Climate Crisis,” Pelosi said in a statement issued Friday.

“She will bring great experience, energy and urgency to the existential threat of the climate crisis,” Pelosi said. “This committee will be critical to the entire Congress’s mission to respond to the urgency of this threat, while creating the good-paying, green jobs of the future.”

Pelosi’s climate committee isn’t expected to have subpoena power or authority to advance legislation to the House floor for a vote. If that’s the case, it would be weaker than the previous select climate committee behind the 2010 failed cap-and-trade effort.

“The American people have demanded action to combat the climate crisis, which threatens our public health, our economy, our national security and the whole of God’s creation,” Pelosi said.   MORE


Scientists discover bacteria that absorbs carbon dioxide and turns into FOOD for sea creatures

Another blow to Global Warming

Scientists studying the Pacific Ocean have discovered a bacteria that absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2) and could potentially turn itself into a food source for other sea creatures.

The bacteria was discovered in one of the deepest parts of the Pacific Ocean, the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ), a trench which extends 2.5 miles beneath the surface.

Scientists have been exploring the area due to its deep sea mining potential. Trials are set to be carried out and if successful, it could mean 200 million tonnes of CO2 is being turned into biomass every year.

Contractors from Korea, Germany and the UK believe the site to be a promising source of polymetallic nodules, which contain metals like nickel, copper and cobalt.

Researchers have carried out tests on the deepest parts of the Pacific Ocean
Biomass found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean could potentially become a food source for animals in the deep sea 

Researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh carried out a series of experiments of the sediments located in the CCFZ and discovered the bacteria, findings were then published in the Limnology and Oceanography.   MORE

Don't Tell Anyone, But We Just Had Two Years Of Record-Breaking Global Cooling

Inconvenient Science: NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you'd know it, since that wasn't deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier?

Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century.

"The 2016-2018 Big Chill," he writes, "was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average."

Isn't this just the sort of man-bites-dog story that the mainstream media always says is newsworthy? In this case, it didn't warrant any news coverage.   MORE


Deadly Insect-Borne Disease Outbreaks Linked to DDT Ban, Not Global Warming

NOTE: DDT was not as effective after a generation as it was initially. This is not mentioned in this report.  As for ticks, we didn't have millions of deer protected by animal rights groups in the 1930-40-50-60's.

The video, published by nonprofit public policy research institute Just Facts, describes the research the institute did this year on the claim by Politico that the surge in deadly insect-borne diseases is due to “warming global temperatures.”

For a special issue of Politico about “planetary health,” reporter Christina Animashaun created a graphic on “climate change and human disease” that states:

Warming global temperatures are changing the range and behavior of disease-carrying insects like mosquitos and ticks and extending the seasons in which they are active. As a result, incidence of the diseases they carry—including Lyme, spotted fever, West Nile and malaria—are all on the rise, despite yearly fluctuations.

However, as the research institute points out, the “U.S. Global Change Resource Program’s Climate Health Assessment” the Politico author cites does not actually support her claim.

“Though there are links between climate and tick distribution, studies that look for links between weather and geographical differences in human infection rates do not show a clear or consistent link between temperature and Lyme disease incidence,” the assessment states.

Brazil’s new foreign minister believes climate change is a Marxist plot

Ernesto Araújo has called climate science ‘dogma’ and bemoaned the ‘criminalisation’ of red meat, oil and heterosexual sex

Brazil’s president-elect Jair Bolsonaro has chosen a new foreign minister who believes climate change is part of a plot by “cultural Marxists” to stifle western economies and promote the growth of China.

Ernesto Araújo – until recently a mid-ranking official who blogs about the “criminalisation” of red meat, oil and heterosexual sex – will become the top diplomat of South America’s biggest nation, representing 200 million people and the greatest and most biodiverse forest on Earth, the Amazon.

His appointment, confirmed by Bolsonaro on Wednesday, is likely to send a chill through the global climate movement.

Brazil was where the international community first came together in 1992 to discuss reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Its diplomats have played a crucial role in bridging the gap between rich and poor nations, particularly during the forging of the Paris agreement in 2015.

But when the new government takes power in January, the foreign ministry that leads that work will be headed by a man who claims climate science is merely “dogma”.

In his blog, Araújo states his goal is to “help Brazil and the world liberate themselves from globalist ideology”, which he sees as anti-Christian.

The right wing Jair Bolsonaro government was elected after a previous green left wing president was jailed for 12 years over contract fraud, a huge scandal involving theft of vast sums of money from the state owned oil company.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro survived an assassination attempt during the campaign which almost claimed his life. He continued to run the campaign from his hospital bed – a level of determination which many believed helped cement his victory.

Naturally President Bolsonaro’s opponents are flinging the usual slurs – racist, dictator, anything else they can think of. But this time it isn’t working.

This all seems very familiar somehow.

One interesting thing I noticed, Google Translate doesn’t seem to work on Ernesto Araújo’s blog, at least when I try it. I was hoping to obtain a translated copy of the original statement about cultural marxism. If anyone speaks Brazilian Portuguese please post a translation in comments if you can find it.

Bolsonaro said before the election that he intends to stay in the Paris Agreement, for now – though I suspect it may be a short stay.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke backed President Donald Trump on the years of forest mismanagement that led to the California fires as Zinke joined Breitbart News Sunday radio with host Amanda House.

He suggested that even photos of the devastation don’t do justice to what it was like to see it in person. Pointing to years of neglect and dead and dying timber, he observed, “It was like a flamethrower of embers shooting through the forests.”

Zinke said many people were unprepared for the fire. He described situations where firefighters were fighting back fire encroaching on commercial buildings with people still inside of them.
