Misuse of The Law; Another Battle in the Climate Wars

Maybe my first payment from Exxon for my climate views will arrive with the subpoena from the Attorney General (AG) of the Virgin Islands charging me under the Criminally Influenced and Corruptions Organizations Act (CICO) for trying to tell the truth. This is the Virgin Island’s version of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Most who contribute to WUWT, are included because at the public event,

“Al Gore, announced that his new coalition would find “creative ways” to prosecute fossil fuel companies, individuals, and organizations who disagree with the catastrophic global warming narrative.”

Austrian minister Rupprechter: Support after frost and snow damage

After the enormous snow and frost damage the affected farms will get help. “We will not let the farmers down,” states the Federal Minister of Agriculture Andrä Rupprechter.

In a conversation with Rupprechter, the Minister of Finance Hans Jörg Schelling has promised to transfer funds from the Natural Disaster Fund. Rupprechter: “The extreme weather of the last few days has led to damages threatening the very existence of farmers in certain regions. And fast support is necessary. Therefore the Federal Ministry of Finance will cover the incurred losses with the Natural Disaster Fund in coordination with the affected states.”

Fort McMurray Wildfire – Climate or Incompetence?

Understaffed, under-resourced forestry workers struggling to contain a growing risk of wildfire, a risk which has been exacerbated by excessive fire suppression causing a buildup of flammables, is a recipe for disaster.

Did Alberta authorities act, and act effectively, on the recommendations of committee? I don’t know the answer to that question. It is possible weather conditions are so severe, even completely reasonable forest safety measures have been overwhelmed by the ferocity of the fire. But if my property and life was directly affected by the current ongoing conflagration, my first question to Alberta authorities would not be “why didn’t you build more wind turbines?”.

Al Gore Reads His Global Warming Poem On CNN

Al Gore is truly a Renaissance Man. He wrote a poem on global warming and he really wants you to hear it. What he probably doesn't want you to hear is that the New York Times called his home a carbon-sucking machine, or that he traveled on more than 200 private jet flights last year. Burn baby burn.

This is cringeworthy. He is a horrible poet.

Spring snow surprises tourists in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The calendar says spring, but it doesn’t look like spring in parts of the Smokies.

For anyone heading into the Smoky Mountains Thursday it did not take long to figure out that winter gear is what you would need. The snow settled in Wednesday night and has been snowing off and on ever since, leaving a good dusting on the ground at Newfound Gap. People spent all day to check it out, take some pictures, and throw some snowballs around.

USGS appears to be removing its websites claiming all glaciers will be melted from Glacier National Park by 2030

On January 8 of this year, I posted a prediction that the government would soon alter its GNP-glaciers-gone-by-2030 claims. See here. I asked, “What is the government going to do as 2030 approaches and it becomes clear that their preposterous claims are untrue?”

“I have no doubt,” I wrote then, “that the government will begin modifying these claims by 2025, if not sooner.” I began saving screenshots of government websites which make the claim that manmade-global-warming will melt the GNP glaciers by 2030.

It turns out I didn’t need to wait very long at all. Today, on May 4, 2016, I started looking for the government’s ‘repeat photography’ sites.

IT APPEARS THEY HAVE DISAPPEARED.

Today when you google “repeat photography” and “Glacier National Park,” you are redirected to general-info USGS sites with pictures of hikers in the mountains.

Fortunately, I have screenshots of the prior government projections.

Government Targets 90 Conservative Groups for Being Skeptical of Climate Change

Regardless of how you feel about climate change (or any controversial debate for that matter) you probably already know that you can’t change someone’s mind by persecuting them. You can’t a hold a gun to their head, metaphorically or literally, and punish them for disagreeing with you. If anything that will only reinforce their beliefs. It’s not only wrong, it’s stupid.

Don’t tell that to Attorney General Claude Walker of the US Virgin Islands. He’s issued a subpoena to Exxon Mobil, asking them to hand over communications with 90 different conservative and libertarian groups, such as “the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Federalist Society, the Hoover Institution, the Reason Foundation, and the Mercatus Institute” as part of a wider racketeering lawsuit.

Weather Channel founder calls Bill Nye ‘a pretend scientist in a bow tie’

A stormy fight is brewing between Weather Channel founder John Coleman and Bill Nye the Science Guy — who bashed a new movie featuring Coleman that denies the existence of global warming.

“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,” Coleman said Friday, according to ClimateDepot.com.

The science smackdown started after Nye shunned the film “Climate Hustle,” which Coleman introduces, and warned viewers not to take it seriously.

“I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the world’s interest,” Nye said of the movie, according to the climate change website.

Berkshire investors reject climate change report

***
Berkshire Hathaway shareholders have overwhelmingly rejected a resolution calling for the company to write a report about the risks climate change creates for its insurance companies.

CEO Warren Buffett says he agrees that dealing with climate change is important for society, but he doesn’t think climate change creates serious risks for Berkshire’s insurance businesses.

Climate Hustle is a new film that debunks the global warming scare and will be playing in selected theatres across the U.S. on Monday May 2

Climate Hustle was produced to tear the cover off of the global warming debate to further investigate this multi-billion-dollar issue. This film event will reveal the history of climate scares, examine the science on both sides of the debate, and dig into the politics and media hype surrounding the issue. Cinema audiences will learn more about the topic through a panel discussion headlined by Sarah Palin (2008 Republican Vice Presidential Candidate; Governor of Alaska 2006-2009); moderated by Brent Bozell, Founder and President of the Media Research Center and respected climatologist Dr. David Legates. This riveting discussion will focus on climate change and issues brought up during the event.

Climate Hustle has been touted by the National Review as "Brutal and extremely funny." Cal Thomas called the movie "Tremendous," and Breitbart News proclaimed the film as "Dynamite."

RISING CARBON DIOXIDE IS MAKING THE EARTH GREENER: EXTRA PLANT GROWTH CAUSED BY GREENHOUSE GASES COULD COVER THE USA TWICE

Scientists used satellite data over the past 33 years to measure leaf cover
Planet has got greener as plants have flourished in rising carbon dioxide
Additional plant growth is equivalent to covering the US twice in greenery
Rising carbon dioxide is responsible for 70 per cent of the extra greening
The pumping of excessive carbon dioxide into the atmosphere has widely been presented as setting our planet on a path towards disaster.

But a new study has revealed rising levels of the greenhouse gas due to humanity's actions is actually having a surprising side-effect – it is making the Earth greener.

Satellite data gathered over 33 years has shown there has been a 'persistent and widespread increase' in the growing season of plants.

Bill Nye, UN Climate Scientist Warn Moviegoers to Shun Film’s 1-Day Theater Release: ‘Not in Our National Interest’

Leading climate activists are warning moviegoers to shun the May 2nd nationwide one-day theater screening of “Climate Hustle,” a new film debunking climate alarmism and its big government solutions.

Bill Nye (not a real “science guy,” FYI), who entertains the idea of throwing climate skeptics in the slammer, warned the film’s producer, Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano, that “Climate Hustle’s” content endangers not just the nation, but also the world:

“I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the world’s interest.”

AGU says CO2 is plant food

Scientists have long suspected that a flourishing of green foliage around the globe, observed since the early 1980s in satellite data, springs at least in part from the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere. Now, a study of arid regions around the globe finds that a carbon dioxide “fertilization effect” has, indeed, caused a gradual greening from 1982 to 2010.

It was so cold and our hands were frozen. Apparently we could get some more over the next day or two. Time to rug up I think.”

My review: Skeptic Film ‘Climate Hustle’ to appear in theaters Nationwide one week from tonight

One week from tonight on May 2nd, CFACT’s groundbreaking film Climate Hustle will be shown in movie theaters across the United States for a special one-night event. I’m in the film, and for the record I’m not paid to do so. That’s not a complaint, just a statement for those people who try to link any opinion to some sort of “pay for play” arrangement, since they have so little else in their toolbox to argue with.

I was given an advance showing of the film, and while at first, I thought perhaps the film was maybe a bit too corny, especially when Morano recreates the famous elevator/lift scene from Al Gore’s long debunked movie, An Inconvenient Truth, and does a terrible job of play acting. I thought then that maybe it just wasn’t going to be a credible response.

Obama’s Global Warming Plan Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raises Taxes By 166%

President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions annually, according to a report published Thursday by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Obama’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.

5 Scientific Reasons That Global Warming Isn't Happening

If nothing changes in the next year, we're going to have kids who graduate from high school who will have never seen any "global warming" during their lifetimes. That's right; the temperature of the planet has essentially been flat for 17 years. This isn't a controversial assertion either. Even the former Director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, Phil Jones, admits that it's true. Since the planet was cooling from 1940-1975 and the upswing in temperature afterward only lasted 22 years, a 17 year pause is a big deal. It also begs an obvious question: How can we be experiencing global warming if there's no actual "global warming?"

Army TOP Priority they focua on

This is what the Army concentrates on.
It is strange if you think about it too long. How much things have changed in such a short time. How just the thinking has changed. Twenty-five years ago we were worried about nukes and WMDs in Iraq. We had a focus, but we were by and large at peace.

Now we are faced with a resurgent Russia pushing in several areas, ISIS, Afghan Terrorists, and a very unstable Middle East that seems ready to fall into despotism. And the strong military that was set to stand and did stand in our and our allies’ defense is slowly being dismantled.

While this occurs what does the Army say it needs to do? Concentrate on Climate Change.

Weather Channel Founder Slams Global Warming: "The Theory Has Failed"

If Bill Nye had his way, Weather Channel founder John Coleman would be heading for jail. Having spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, Coleman penned a pointed rebuke to "the science guy's" vehement faith in the 'science' of climate change, exclaiming that "science has taken a back seat at The UN... get politics out of the climate debate."

On this Earth Day 2016, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the civilized activities of man allegedly trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change.

With the Obama administration set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the document Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.

The Paris Agreement: An Assessment

Recent analysis indicates that the sensitivity of the climate to rising levels of carbon dioxide is lower than previously assumed. This is consistent with the finding that forecasts of warming by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have substantially over-estimated the likely extent of warming. If these new analyses of sensitivity are correct, average global temperatures might rise to less than 2°C above preindustrial levels without any restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions.

Regardless of whether the new analyses of climate sensitivity are correct or not, the voluntary commitments to reduce emissions made by governments in their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) would have little impact on the rate of warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Paris agreement isn't intended to affect the rate of warming (or cooling). It's just a scam to justify wealth redistribution; to make all nations' economies equally horrible so the borders can be dropped.

175 countries sign Paris climate accord

‘Today is an historic day,’ says Ban, as 175 countries sign Paris climate accord

22 April 2016 – As 175 world leaders signed the Paris Agreement at United Nations Headquarters today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the next critical step is to ensure that the landmark accord for global action on climate change enters into force as soon as possible.

“Today is an historic day,” Mr. Ban told reporters at a press conference following the opening ceremony of the signing event. “This is by far the largest number of countries ever to sign an international agreement on a single day.”

According to the UN chief, the participation by so many countries and the attendance by so many world leaders leaves “no doubt” that the international community is determined to take climate action.>>>

‘But aren’t 97 per cent of climate scientists sure that humans are causing global warming?’

The crème de la crème comes with the work (if that is right term for it) of John Cook, occasionally aided by Stefan Lewandowsky. I’ve written about their ‘contribution’ to science more than once, as here, for example. In 2013 Cook et al and a team of volunteers looked at more than 12,000 abstracts, rated them according to whether or not they implicitly or explicitly endorsed the view that human activity had caused (wait for it) some of the warming, and again found the magic 97 per cent. See — it’s true! Surely those three separate ratings of 97 per cent have something going for them.

On the face of it, no. Unfortunately for Cook, Legates and others later in the same year published a rebuttal. They found that only 41 papers – 0.3% of all 11,944 abstracts or 1.0% of the 4,014 expressing an opinion, and not 97.1% – had been found to endorse the claim that human activity is causing most of the current warming.

6 Reasons Why Most Scientific Research is Fake, False or Fraudulent

How often do scientists smugly quote the latest research on a topic only later to be made the fool by insider revelations that published research in peer-reviewed journals is abjectly false? This happens so frequently now, that it has become clear: Science is broken, and most scientific research is fraudulent.

It isn’t broken like a bike needing a new tire, or even an outdated paradigm that has reached its tipping point, as in the time of the renaissance. Modern science is broken for reasons that might shock you.

First, there’s a replication crisis. More and more studies simply cannot be replicated, so any false theories are not thrown out, but left floating as acceptable ‘fact’ in the hallowed scientific ethers, when they are nothing more than studies paid for and promoted by the companies who have a marked interest in proving their personal hypothesis.

Bill Nye 'The Straw Man Guy'

So Bill Nye, the elementary “Science Guy” (we prefer the more accurate phrase “Science Lie”), is taking on Patriot Post contributor and veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi. Posing with a fabricated hard copy of a Post publication in his latest video, Nye responds directly to Bastardi’s November column, “Some Questions for Bill Nye Six Years After Our ‘O'Reilly Factor’ Debate.” Nye’s challenge? “Mr. Bastardi, I will bet you $10,000. I predict that the year 2016 will be among the top ten hottest years ever recorded. … I’ll take it up a notch. I’ll bet you another $10,000 that the decade 2010-2020 will prove to be the hottest decade ever recorded.”

Bastardi has been quite public about forecasting a warm 2016 since last year. Nye is apparently unaware of this, so he resorted to a straw man. Why would Joe bet against his own forecast?

Climate-change believers resort to McCarthyism

When history discredited "global cooling" it morphed to "global warming," then "climate change," then "climate emergency," then "extreme weather" in attempts to salvage a failing theory.

Now the theory is increasingly being protected not by scientific merit, but by a wave of McCarthyism not seen since the early 1950s, when the lives of many innocent people were ruined in the hunt for Communists. Instruments of government power are now used to suppress free speech of anyone who disagrees with the manmade global warming theory.

April blizzard drops 4 inches of snow on Denver, cancels annual 420 Rally

Denver’s annual 420 Rally, billed on its website as the largest 420 celebration in the world (despite taking place on April 16), was jut one of many casualties of an April blizzard that dropped about four inches of snow on the city. That may not seem like a lot but it was enough to shut down the city’s airport and cancel the plans of thousands of Denverites to sit outside and smoke weed all day.

The CULT of 'Scientism' explained: How scientific claims behind cancer, vaccines, psychiatric drugs and GMOs are nothing more than corporate-funded science FRAUD

Sadly, what often passes for "science" today in the world of health is little more than "Scientism" -- a dangerous cult founded on irrational dogma and faith-based beliefs in faulty, fraudulent ideas being paraded as science.

A common trait that weaves its way through every topic of "Scientism" is corporate profits. Any time something is being pushed with aggressive demands of "SCIENCE!" that also happens to enrich wealthy corporations, it's probably based on fraud, not real science.

Perpetrators of fraudulent scientism include Paul Offit, Dr. David Gorski, Monsanto pal Bill Nye, discredited biotech shill and former Forbes.com writer Jon Entine and too many others to even name.

Sarah Palin Weirdly Attacks Bill Nye: 'As Much A Scientist As I Am'

“Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” Palin said. “He’s a kids’ show actor, he’s not a scientist.”

(She made the remark after a brief clip was shown of Nye, in which he said, good-naturedly, that he hoped climate change deniers will be rejected by the American people.)

Palin bemoaned the fact that children are being taught to embrace the premise that humans are causing climate change. She added this is why “it’s so important for parents to be a greater influence than the schools.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an historic moment. Sarah Palin is actually right about something!

Wyoming DOT: I-80 Completely Shut Down For 'White Out Conditions'

The State of Wyoming is informing all commercial trucks entering their port of entry on Interstate 80 eastbound that the entire interstate is shut down at Rock Springs due to whiteout conditions. Weather looked sunny and mild at the Utah/ Wyoming state line, but Rock Springs is 100 miles to the east. Evanston, WY, located at exit 3, is beginning to see light snowflakes. The DOT officer said that the I-80 has been closed since last night. So if you're expecting a package in the mail, don't be surprised if it's late. Happy spring in the age of 'global warming!' :-)

Preparing for the spring storm

As the storm enters the Front Range, a spokesman for Xcel Energy told 9NEWS on Thursday that out-of-state utility crews are headed to Colorado to assist with storm efforts.

"We have already started calling other utilities from Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas," Mark Stutz said. "We have mutual assistance programs with other utilities so if they're having problems with say tornados in Kansas or Oklahoma, Texas we will be willing to send crews to help them out with their restoration."

Stutz told 9NEWS the blizzard on March 23 caused Xcel to surpass a record in terms power outages.

"We lost service to about 290,000 customers that day," he said. "That's the highest one day total ever on our system in Colorado."

BEX ALERT - Research shows — yet again — that there’s no scientific debate about climate change

It's a well-known and widely cited statistic: 97 percent of scientific experts agree that human-caused climate change is real. The consensus has been supported by numerous studies — and yet the idea that the statistic is made up, or wrong, is still a common position among climate doubters and a major tool used to foster public uncertainty about climate change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Washington Post should at least wait until the snow (which is still falling out west as I type this) to melt before flinging this particular brand of manure around.

As long as the WP is regurgitating old lies, please tell us the one about how Saddam had nuclear weapons again' we just LOVE that one!

Now, setting aside the fact that the methodology by which that 97% claim was arrived at has been discredited, I would remind people that when Galileo was trying to demonstrate that the Earth orbited the sun, 97% of the scientists of his day would have disagreed with him. Obviously, that 97% was wrong.

There is a condemnation of this idea of consensus in Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" that goes (I am paraphrasing) "The majority is not always right. Indeed the majority is usually wrong, because before the majority can be right, one man must be right, and while he stands alone in the truth the majority is wrong." See Galileo above.

More recently, Michael Crichton, in his book "State of Fear", commented "Science is not consensus and consensus is not science!"

Last year, National Geographic ran an article bemoaning that people do not trust science; that they are unwilling to accept as unquestionable truth anything said by a paid lackey in a white laboratory coat (the 21st Century version of a priest's robes) .

But there are reasons not to simply trust what a scientist says.

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles, trying to reconcile the Earth centered model with the observed motions of the planets. Epicycles hold the record for longest running scientific goof in history!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thought the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!vPrior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors thought infection was caused by bad air, from which we get the term "Malaria."

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus; the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

Religious leaders say "trust us."

Politicians say "trust us."

The Washington Post says "trust us."

But science is not religion, politics, or mass media.

Science is reproducibility and independent verification of results, something notoriously lacking in the claims of human-caused global warming.

Back on March 20, 2000, the UK Independent, a newspaper (much like the Washington Post) ran the headline story "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past", describing how we would all have to describe or show pictures to our children of what it was like to have a white winter, because the CONSENSUS was that the warming world would make snow a rarity. The Earth has had several record-setting winters since then. Real scientists (meaning those who have not sold their integrity for generous research grants from the promoters of a carbon tax) would acknowledge that the real world did not match the predictions in those computer models, and would, as they say, go back to the drawing board.

Far form the claimed 97% consensus, virtually every climatologist not in the pay of the carbon tax people acknowledge that the dominant control over climate on Earth is th sun, which is entering a period of reduced activity; a repeat of the Maunder Minimum, and bringing with it, a repeat of the Little Ice Age that chilled the Earth from 1300 and 1870.

But global warming was never science. It is a political agenda, to push for a carbon tax and more control over our lives, and a little thing like reality should never be allowed to stand in the way of another grab for our wallets.

So it is that we have the Washington Post, ever faithful servant of the powers that be, and unrepentant over its telling about Saddam's nukes, continuing to spout the approved fairy tales while winter lingers and the scent of manure wafts through the air!

Last week more than a dozen attorneys general gathered in New York. You might think they were there to discuss how to combat crime, the heroin epidemic… maybe even terrorism. They weren’t. Instead they were conferring on how to use the law to punish scientists and researchers who question climate change orthodoxy.

That’s right—if your scientific research bucks the party line on global warming, you could face government-inspired lawsuits.

April had more snow in Pittsburgh than December

Winter might have finally finished rearing its ugly head.

After 2.2 inches of snow fell Friday and Saturday, April is expected to be above average in temperature for the rest of the month, said Rihaan Gangat, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Moon Township. That took the April snowfall total to 3.1 inches -- higher than March and December’s totals combined.

Cripple Creek snow extends visits

By Noon, the sun was shining in Cripple Creek, but a big snow storm hit the city hard on Sunday night and Monday morning.

On Bennett Avenue, where the bulk of the casinos in the city are located, the action was starting to pick up early Monday afternoon.

Earlier Monday morning some of the workers at the casinos were knocking the heavy, wet snow off of the awnings.

Meanwhile, drivers were brushing off the snow. Most of the cars had more than a half-foot on them.

Plow trucks were working hard as well, trying to clear the snow from the roads.

Deep-sixing another useless climate myth

To make this extreme assertion, Anderegg et al. compiled a database of 908 climate researchers who published frequently on climate topics, and identified those who had “signed statements strongly dissenting from the views” of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The 97–98% figure is achieved by counting those who had not signed such statements.

Silence, in Anderegg’s view, meant those scientists agreed with the extreme view that most warming was due to humans. However, nothing in their papers suggests that all those researchers believed humans had caused most of the planetary warming, or that it was dangerous.
