Before I get to my Global Warming Update:
Remember this: April 2008
Barack Obama described small-town Pennsylvanians as “bitter,” distrustful have-nots who “cling to guns or religion” – prompting his foes to accuse him of being a condescending snob.
During a private fund-raiser last weekend in San Francisco, Obama said “the jobs have been gone now for 25 years” in a lot of small towns.
“And,” he concluded, “it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
“That’s not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work,” the president said.
A little Clingy? 🙂 (and the guns would be – Fast & Furious?) 🙂
Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney denied that Obama had perhaps gone too far by dragging the Almighty into a fierce political spat.
“I believe that the phrase from the Bible is ‘the Lord helps those who help themselves,'” Carney said.
So that’s why Government should “spread the wealth around” and covet thy neighbor’s wealth! And Government is the answer to all problems. 🙂
“A Democratic majority in the Senate (has) teamed up with the White House on a strategy of doing nothing,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
“The president’s economic policies have failed to do what he said they would. And now he’s designing legislation to fail.”
But the White House says Republican ideas would do nothing to tackle unemployment in the short term and say urgent action is required now. (yahoo)
Now that’s the spirit of compromise!! 🙂
A noted “warmist” on Monday said scientists that believe the theory of global warming will “endorse Al Gore even though they know what he’s saying is exaggerated and misleading.”
Richard Muller of the University of California at Berkeley (Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature) also told Capitol Report New Mexico, “He’ll talk about polar bears dying even though we know they’re not dying”
MULLER: I don’t feel uncomfortable. It’s just a mistake. I’m in the Al Gore camp? That’s ridiculous. I wrote a book, my “Physics and Technology for Future Presidents” book. Look at the last third of that. What I point out is that most of what appears in “An Inconvenient Truth” is either absolutely wrong, exaggerated, or misleading.
So, at this point they say, “The public’s not listening. I know this is urgent, therefore I have to say things that the public will understand.”
Simplistic lies and charlatans!! That’s what they understand. 🙂
And they will then endorse Al Gore even though they know what he’s saying is exaggerated and misleading. You know, he’ll talk about polar bears dying even though we know they’re not dying. And, and I feel scientists unfortunately too many of them have abandoned the scientific method precisely because the problem is so important. And I feel exactly the opposite: when the problem is really important, then we have to hunker down, and really use the best methods of science.
Pretty disgusting picture being painted by a scientist on the global warming is real side of the climate change debate.
Almost exactly what skeptics have been saying for years: scientists pushing the global warming myth “have abandoned the scientific method” and will use any tactic, including “endors[ing] Al Gore even though they know what he’s saying is exaggerated and misleading,” to advance their agenda.
Are you a global warming skeptic? There are plenty of good reasons why you might be.
As many as 757 stations in the United States recorded net surface-temperature cooling over the past century. Many are concentrated in the southeast, where some people attribute tornadoes and hurricanes to warming.
The temperature-station quality is largely awful. The most important stations in the U.S. are included in the Department of Energy’s Historical Climatology Network. A careful survey of these stations by a team led by meteorologist Anthony Watts showed that 70% of these stations have such poor siting that, by the U.S. government’s own measure, they result in temperature uncertainties of between two and five degrees Celsius or more. We do not know how much worse are the stations in the developing world.
Using data from all these poor stations, the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates an average global 0.64ºC temperature rise in the past 50 years, “most” of which the IPCC says is due to humans. Yet the margin of error for the stations is at least three times larger than the estimated warming. (Muller-WSJ)
No, the ClimateGate thing was a scandal, it’s terrible what they did, it’s shameful the way they hid the data. There’s real skepticism, valid skepticism about the degree of warming that’s caused by humans and at this meeting today, we’re hearing a range of things that were not incorporated in the IPCC report and need to be incorporated in the future. The issue isn’t whether there’s global warming; it’s how much there is. And how much of that is caused by humans? And there’s still a lot of uncertainty that and the skeptics are raising very good points on that issue.
You mean it’s not ABSOLUTELY true and you’re an idiot not to believe in it 100% like the Global Warming Alarmists say!
And if we have to lie to get you to do what we want, well, that’s just what we have to do.
Sounds like he should be working for Obama, he does this repeatedly.
