Denying Global Warming
Allie Winegar Duzett, October 29, 2009
CNN and ABC would have you believe the debate on global warming is over; Dr. Richard S. Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology agrees. However, while the mainstream media shouts from the rooftop that global warming is manmade, Dr. Lindzen takes the opposite point of view: the debate is over, he says, but anthropogenic global warming (AGW) alarmists lost the argument. The science is here and it shows that humans do not affect climate in any meaningful way.
When Dr. Lindzen is asked if he is a global warming skeptic, he says he is not. I am a global warming denier, he corrects his questioners. The reasons for this position of his are many, and Dr. Lindzen expressed his opinion that if others did the research he has done, they would deny AGW as well.
At a recent Competitive Enterprise Institute event, Dr. Lindzen discussed one experience in particular he had with a leader in the eco-alarmist movement who said that global warming was accelerating. When Dr. Lindzen asked her for scientific proof of accelerating warming, this leader was unable to provide it. To think of [global warming] as accelerating is bizarre, Dr. Lindzen said, using multiple graphs to prove his point. While the media makes a lot of noise about shrinking polar ice caps, Dr. Lindzens graphs showed no such problem. Rather, ice caps grow and shrink yearly based on annual climate aloneregardless of long-term climate changes.
Dr. Lindzen professed his frustrations with the mainstream media, which constantly parrots such lines as the dizzy heights of 1998, which they claim is the warmest year on record. The dizzy heights of 1998? Dr. Lindzen asked, incredulously, at this statement...

Despite the best efforts of the SRM, here and there bits of sanity claw through the propaganda.
The State of Wyoming just broke the all time snow record for the month of October. We next door might be next. and this is an awfully cold October. All stupid believers will be dropped off, naked in their choice of the Arctic or Antarctic their choice of month, and be required to sustain life for 30 days.
You get 30 MRE’s and all the water you can melt.
Case closed, problem solved.
It's snowing in Albuquerque right now.

I can believe that. Fallout from Denver.
Snowing in Rapid City as well.
We had something like 18 inches of Global Warming here in the People's Republic yesterday.
At least 20” in Fort Collins!
Hillary Clinton and the minions of the ‘bama have recently made some very revealing comments, purportedly in jest, about how a crisis creates opportunities for ‘reform’. Before the economy tanked, the fascists worked very hard to create various crises to facilitate their wicked designs: the environment, race relations, womens’ rights, social inequities, animal rights, and even subjects as pedestrian as smoking, obesity and nutrition. What looked from the right as hypocrisy was really the left twisting and distorting these ‘causes’ to attain the desired result, which is totalitarian regimentation of society. They’ve never really cared about anything but their agenda, and everything they espouse as their principles are only a means to an end.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
Still chuckling - thanks
