YOU’VE GOT TO LAUGH AT THE THOUGHT OF ANOTHER GROUP OF GLOBAL WARMING ALARMISTS PROTESTING IN RECORD-SETTING HAND-STINGING COLD

Hand clapping was kept to a minimum at what was billed as the “nation’s largest act of civil disobedience to fight climate change” but managed to produce a few hundred grumpy protesters.

It was so cold, Nancy Pelosi couldn’t get her taxpayer-financed private jet off the icy ground to attend the protest in Washington D.C. and numerous events had to be canceled as the Capitol was basically shut down.

Ironically, the purpose of the meeting was to force the government to close the Capitol Power Plant which heats a number of government buildings, including the Supreme Court and the Capitol.

With yet another arctic blast descending from the “shrinking” ice cap, dumping six inches of snow on Washington, the protest was eventually shut down.

The global warming propaganda armies are in full swing, however. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t hear or see some organization pushing the green agenda here. They are apparently heavily financed and, with the soon to be infusion of taxpayer money to push their agenda, it won’t be long before we’re paying much higher prices for gasoline, and our heating and cooling bills begin to skyrocket.

I’ve noticed recently an organized effort to discredit George Will who wrote a column about global warming a few weeks ago.

It seems thousands of e-mails and letters followed his column, all saying basically the same thing: That Mr. Will’s column was fully of inaccuracies although they all cited only two.

Basically Will said that recent reports indicate that global sea ice recovery this fall and winter was the fastest on record and that global ice had returned to 1979 levels.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?node=admin/registration/register&destination=login&nextstep=gather&application=reg30-opinion&applicationURL=http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/02/13/AR2009021302514.html

The objections basically ignored the first part but jumped on the second because he cited the University of Illinois' Arctic Climate Research Center (UIACRC) as saying global sea ice levels now equal those of 1979.

In fact, the UIACRC said that the levels were near 1979 levels with a net loss in the Northern hemisphere and a smaller net gain in the Southern.

There. Those are the facts.

Their second objection was that Will stated that there has been no global warming since 1998. In fact, the global temperatures have been dropping since that high mark but critics maintain he is wrong because the United Nations says that, nevertheless, global warming is continuing.

I suppose what bureaucrats say is more important that what the thermometer says, but you can believe who and what you wish.

There are thousands of scientists and climatologists who disagree with the United Nations.

As far me, the trend over the last 11 years is downward and the data show that.

Meanwhile, none of the global warming alarmists seem a bit concerned that satellite sensors were recently found to have underestimated Arctic sea ice by an area equal to the size of California.

Check current levels here:

As you can see, it’s well above last year, a year of record cold, ice, and snow, and approaching the average levels from 1979-2000.

Meanwhile, the media is still pushing stories about Arctic “ice melt” and repeating predictions made last year that the North Pole would be ice-free soon:

Funny no one bothered to correct their reports that the Arctic ice recovery this winter had “stalled”.

Of course they didn’t. Facts are inconvenient things, aren’t they, and they have to get their green schemes up and running before people wise up on their own.

The taste of love is sweet
when hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild.

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns
the ring of fire
the ring of fire.

I can relate. I mentioned before that several lj "friends" dropped me after making fun of Al Gore's mammoth energy bills, exposing his conflicts of interest involving his own "carbon credit" company, etc.

These are truly cultish people because there are so many holes in their arguments (they are constantly revising their models, explanations, and data) and they steadfastly ignore them and hold onto their faith.

Btw, the simplest explanation you can give someone on the correlation between temperature and CO2 is to ask what happens when you leave a two-liter soda at room temperature, compared to one that is refrigerated.

The soda gives up its "fizz" (CO2) when warm and holds it when cold.

That's why the historic record shows CO2 levels following increases in temperature over the millenia, not causing it.

Also, how can you compare temperature readings in urban environments with all our concrete, asphalt, and steel when the same recording stations were practically rural areas in decades past?

There's so much more, and more and more scientists are starting to speak out.

The Earth warms and cools naturally and there is far more to climate change than anything we can do to it.

It's one more excuse to control our lives and use taxpayer money to subsidize new industries that can't compete in the
"so-called" free market.
