Oh Joy, Another Year Of Chicken Littles From The Left

Published by at 10:59 am under All General Discussions,Global Warming

I was all optimistic about 2008 until John Tierney reminded me we have another year of “The Sky Is Falling” to look forward from the Man-made Global Warming fanatics:

You’re in for very bad weather. In 2008, your television will bring you image after frightening image of natural havoc linked to global warming. You will be told that such bizarre weather must be a sign of dangerous climate change — and that these images are a mere preview of what’s in store unless we act quickly to cool the planet.

Unfortunately, I can’t be more specific. I don’t know if disaster will come by flood or drought, hurricane or blizzard, fire or ice. Nor do I have any idea how much the planet will warm this year or what that means for your local forecast. Long-term climate models cannot explain short-term weather.

A year ago, British meteorologists made headlines predicting that the buildup of greenhouse gases would help make 2007 the hottest year on record. At year’s end, even though the British scientists reported the global temperature average was not a new record — it was actually lower than any year since 2001 — the BBC confidently proclaimed, “2007 Data Confirms Warming Trend.”

When the Arctic sea ice last year hit the lowest level ever recorded by satellites, it was big news and heralded as a sign that the whole planet was warming. When the Antarctic sea ice last year reached the highest level ever recorded by satellites, it was pretty much ignored.

The cherry picking of news to increase the panic effect is not working. With record snow levels and the fact the Arctic Ice Cap is about back to its normal levels (sorry, can’t find the link now) the long awaited Global Warming disaster looks to be a no-show. But that won’t stop the Chicken Littles from running around with their heads cut off (figuratively speaking of course).

    Europe via the EU has been buying in to this almost as a please give me something else to concentrate on since I don’t want to think about our Radical Muslim issues.

    With all the aggressive new regulations coming online, if the combined effort does little or nothing their will be major questions coming down the line but what they have already done will probably be set in stone.

    Bali was a push by the leading edgers to try to get agreements while their hand was still hot and was almost desperate in it’s methods.

    They didn’t get much of anything that they really wanted and it will be harder and harder to keep their coalitions together.

    As the regulations phase in and all the unintended side effects start blooming opinion will start to turn unless someone somehow comes up with a major new study putting a lot better data support forward and that doesn’t seem to be even a gleam in anyones eye much less in the cards.

    I am looking for the bigger effect later in the year as China falters because they can’t keep their resource supply chain growing fast enough to support their recent growth rates.

    Take for example the Lefty at the Iowa debates.She asks the repubs to show their hands if they believe in global warming and that it’s caused by human activity.Well, you can believe the planet warms and cools naturally but it doesn’t have to be human induced.To put the two questions together and ask for a show of hands is BOGUS.

    On the subject of Global Warming, this is only one small part of a much bigger process this planet, and indeed, the entire Solar System are going through. I f you have not seen the scientific work of Dr. Alexey N. Dmitriev, please do so. His extremely comprehensive report is “Planetophysical State of the Earth and Life,” and can be found at The Millenium Group website: http://www.tmgnow.com. Go to The Repository and you will find this report there. Mainstream science will igrore this report at their peril. The same goes for the rest of us.
    We are moving through an area of interstellar space that is overflowing with high-frequency energy that is heating up Earth, and all the planets in the system. There is no escaping this. Things will only become more intense. This appears to correspond exactly with a dimensional shift the Mayans claim we will experience in 2012. It is to be a “Great Celebration.” It is reported as well to be our Initiation Into Cosmic Consciousness. See you there….
