Oh How The “Stupid” Burns!!


We know the “News” media will do or say anything to prop up poor Hillary. But recently we have had a spate of such moronic commentary it actually is burning my brain. I happen to be one of those quasi rocket scientists who has worked on little things like NASA’s Space Station (just to name one). I have also worked on science missions observing the Earth and I know there is very little consensus on what level of warming there is and its causes. So when an Obama-fanboy reporter comes out and just drools all over his hero, it is just too painful to watch:

Allen was glamoured by Obama’s ability to give the speech at such a crucial time in catastrophic weather history.

“It’s very interesting that this is happening a day when there’s a hurricane bearing down on the United States and in the Caribbean because these severe storms, beach erosions, intense weather episodes that we’ve had is perhaps the most practical sample of what the president was talking about as the threat that the planet faces,” he said.  “This is what this whole climate agreement… is designed to stop.”

And Obama will make the waters recede as well!



Good Lord, has the drooling stopped yet? But of course, this is NOT a coincidence that a major hurricane is finally hitting the US (after 4,000 days) and Obama has a speech on Global Warming.  He has been waiting 8 years for this moment to tout the elitist cover-story to control the world’s energy.

Of course, Hillary also cannot stand by and miss out on the perfect human tragedy:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign scrambled Thursday to quell charges that the Democratic presidential nominee was exploiting Hurricane Matthew for political gain, as they put on hold TV ads running on the Weather Channel that appeared timed to coincide with the storm hitting swing-state Florida.

Following sharp criticism from Republicans that the TV ads were opportunistic and insensitive to the destruction and suffering expected from the Category 4 hurricane, the Clinton campaign postponed the ads just as the five-day $63,000 ad buy began to air on the Weather Channel.

If not for the GOP criticism, the political hack deep inside “Her” would have merrily used this moment to gain the power she has craved her entire life.

Look, we don’t know enough about Mother Nature to understand if we live in a unique climate or not.  The long term record, spanning beyond humanity’s short stint on Earth, indicates if anything we are living in a relatively cold period with very low CO2 levels.

This image shows the last 5,00 years as recorded in the Greenland Ice Sheet (note: this is Northern Hemisphere between Europe and America so a good, neutral indicator). As can be seen we do NOT live in the warmest period of all time, let alone the last 5,00 years (see here for the actual scientific paper).

It is telling that Obama had to wait nearly his entire term for a major hurricane to hit so he could have in media moment. Must have been so frustrating for him. But while the climate is not warming, damn does the “stupid” burn!

    Unlike other executive orders, he could hardly order a climate event…it muust have been so difficult for him!
