Indisputable
The Richmond Times Dispatch ^ | 8/29/2013 | Unsigned editorial

Posted on 08/29/2013 4:25:14 AM PDT by Captain Jack Aubrey

A leaked draft of the U.N.’s latest climate assessment rates the probability that human action is warming the planet as a near certainty. Six years ago, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded with 90 percent certainty that human activity has caused most of the planet’s warming over the past half-century. This year’s draft raises the probability to 95 percent. The small cadre of committed skeptics likely will dismiss the latest finding as yet another lie by a vast conspiracy bent on imposing one-world government. Two decades ago that might have been a defensible position. Today it is laughable. Just look at how hard the Obama administration has tried to keep domestic spying by the NSA secret — and how little success it has had doing so. The NSA’s activities are highly classified. The data on climate, by contrast, are open to scrutiny by anyone, which should make exposing any falsehoods a piece of cake. Yet during the past two decades the case for the anthropogenic thesis has grown stronger — not weaker. The latest assessment by the world’s best scientific minds says it has grown stronger still. It is long past time to stop debating the fact of global warming and start debating how to deal with it.

This used to be a conservative paper. Now it is owned by Obama buddy Warren Buffett. This headline should have read "Shut Up, They said."

Pitiful.

Fie Fi Fo Fam.....I smell the blood of a Straw Man.

Let me get this straight.....Obama is grossly incompetant, therefore Global Warming MUST be real.

It doesn’t get any stupider than this, folks.

This should be viewed within the context of the actual conspiracy that was revealed a couple years ago: The emails that were made public.

The truth is, via scientific study, unsigned, is that leftists cause “goreball warming”. Draw your own conclusions on the necessary steps to resolve.

I use someone’s association with or support of the Democrat party as a good indicator as to their moral character.

Now I use a belief in man-made global warming as a good indicator as to their mental capacity as well.

These are useful and accurate tools in evaluating people.

I don't think I would have used that particular argument, pardner. Wasn't Global Warming the first major casualty of WikiLeaks—showing specifically that "research" at East Anglia—and yes, Virginia! That is, UVa—had turned into a conspiracy to cover up unhelpful data and suppress the publication of papers that were damaging to the Global Toast hypothesis? All to protect, not the truth, but funding?

I am reminded of how the Catholic Church....for roughly a thousand years....did everything possible to ensure nothing written by Aristotle was in public view, or used in any of the church’s universities of higher learning. Challenging their way of thinking was just plain unacceptable. By destroying most of the works of Aristotle....the Catholic Church almost had their version of the universe and knowledge easily sewn up.

Then, along came those silly Muslims....who apparently kept a great deal of the works of Aristotle. And over the years, as enlightenment arrived....the church’s version of reality disappeared.

I think the global warming crowd faces the same disappointment in the end. Fake science doesn’t win against real science.

An unsigned editorial is worth about as much as all that supposedly peer-reviewed study on the subject. In truth, the results are a collusion of lies by ‘peers’ that have resulted in malformed offspring much the same as a mutant resulting from multiple generations of inbreeding.

Total bullshit.

Just wait till February, when the Super Bowl is played in a blinding snowstorm. From all I see, we are going to have an absolutely frigid, brutal winter. No, weather does not make climate, but in an ever warming climate, you don’t have brutally cold winters.

We’re going to have one. And the whole “sky is falling” crowd will fall on deaf ears. Too bad we closed all those coal-fired electric plants.

In related but unreported news, it has now been 2867 days (7.85 years) since the last major (Cat 3 or above) has made landfall in the United States. This shatters the old record of 2231 days (6.11 years) set 19 Oct 1906.

Since Global Warming predicts more and more hurricanes of greater and greater force, this record breaking long calm spell proves Global Warming is true.

(Or something.)

Except, of course, for the "lost data" and the models they refuse to allow others to examine. This is the crux of the problem: The so-called "deniers" are completely open with their evidence. The "warmers" are quite closed.

My reposte as now found in the comment section of the Richmond Times Recorder.

Like Theodon and Aragorn at Helm’s Deep...is is good from time to time the we Freeper saddle up and ride forth among the orcian hordes to remind them that men still exist.

Everybody here has a horse.....ride forth every time you can.


Since it looks like only your mom and me have read your editorial, I guess it is up to me to retort.

Continued skepticism about the causes of “global warming” is not laughable as you opine.

What is laughable is that the media by their unprecedented partisan advocacy, their continuing lapse in social responsibility to research, interrogate, and report facts instead of “opine” like all the trendy amateur metro-moronic blog sites, has lost ALL credibility with the public on this or any other issue.

You are no longer believed. We think you are liars. How harsh it that?

Our ruling class clown sell outs like the national moron Al “Jazira” Gore are no longer believed.

The lock stepped, lab coated high priests of the global warming religion are no longer believed.

They all lie relentlessly for self service and personal profit. They sit in privileged comfort and wag their finger about how much “more” they know than we mere provincials and how WE have to change. Well screw them and the Times Dispatch.

I would like to read and respond directly to the UN study (definitely not a laughable institution</sarcasm>) in specific detail.....but since you failed to provide ANY proof of its existence by link or reference...I can’t do that. And that is BAD reporting and BAD journalism. I am not even sure that all these studies even exist anymore. “Leaked?” “Draft?”...give me a flipping break. How about waiting like they teach in Science 101 for RELEASED and REVIEWED.

Global warming is the joke. Arrived at only in the fevered imaginations of pimpled little lab rats and bloated bureaucrats “conforming” self admittedly despoiled and fabricated data to fit a predetermined self serving outcome. Man bad. Gaia goddess good. All bow to Gaia goddess and pay carbon tax tithe to the new high priests.

Man made, or even influenced global warming with the “proof” being proffered by its compromised advocates is the moral and intellectual equivalent of grass skirted Polynesian pagan priests herding their frightened little tribe to the rim of the volcano. There, they toss in another virgin or two to appease the unhappy lava god.

Continue to believe exactly what you have been told and conditioned to believe. Mislead as many other fools as you can.

Me?

Like Darwin famously said.... “I THINK!”

The problem for the AGW scammers is that the data is, as they say, available. Others not party to the scam have analyzed the data and do not draw the same alarmist, used car salesman “act now” conclusions. The scammers are doing what scammers do everywhere, playing on fear, pushing hasty decisions, and counting on people to be too lazy to check for themselves. Anytime anyone is pushing “act now or else!” Hold on to your wallet and step back from the situation. If it smells like a scam, it probably is. AGW stinks to high hheaven.

“The latest assessment by the world’s best scientific minds says it has grown stronger still.”

This in support of an organization (the IPCC) that beclowned itself by stating that if we didn’t do something RIGHT NOW the Himalayan glaciers would all melt by 2035.

Nice short piece ripping IPCC, Al Gore, Michael Mann and other lying leftists for the global warming hoax they insist on carrying on with, despite “actual facts” to the contrary of their argument.

Is that why McIntyre has to FOIA NASA to get their documents? I had no idea. They still don't release the source code on their models.

One unsupported assertion after another are used to claim that global warming is caused by you (mankind). No discussion about global cooling, the role of the Sun, why the "case" for anthropogenic causes is "stronger" not weaker, and how the so called "scientific" minds say it has grown stronger. All nonsensical statements by an unsigned editorial writer.

Anthropogenic causes of global warming have been discredited by the data more than once. Only those with a vested interest in global warming still support it.

I understand the difference between Virginia, the real Virginia, and the liberal eastern VA.

But still it is hard to believe that the real Virginians would put up with this crap.

Or maybe its just another attempt by the marxists panhandlers and assorted third world losers in the UN to extort money from western taxpayers.

Although I fully understand that doesn't sound as laughable as "a vast conspiracy bent on one world government".
