Hello Global Cooling

Great interview with Dennis Avery over at RWN:

…The very mild warming that the earth experienced over the last century: does that have more to do with mankind’s activities or the sun?

It seems like it must be the sun. The reason we say that is because 70% of the warming we’ve had since 1850, when the Little Ice Age ended — 70% of that warming came before 1940. 85% of the human emitted greenhouse gasses came after 1940. In fact, the net warming of the earth since 1940 is a miniscule 2/10 of 1 degree celsius….

Another question related to your last book: if you listen to global warming alarmists, they’ll tell you that the earth is warmer than it ever has been during mankind’s history. Is that true?

No. Absolutely untrue. The…warming before our last ice age was much warmer than anything we’ve had since. We had a warming that peaked 9000 years ago, another warming that peaked 5000 years ago. Both were warmer than today. Probably the Roman warming and the medieval warming were both warmer than today — and we’ve had 8 warmings of the earth since the last Ice Age.

The whole thing is interesting – the coming outlook for global temperature?

You’ve recently said you believe we’re about to experience mild global cooling. Can you tell us about that?

We are experiencing now, mild global cooling. We had a peak temperature in 1998, at the end of a hot El Nino and the climate model said this is just the beginning, it’s going to get much hotter. But, it didn’t. For 10 years, the temperature held stable.

During this time, from 2000 onward, the sunspots were predicting cooling. Let me point out to your readers that sunspots have had a strong history of predicting our temperature changes 10 years from now. A 10 year lag in predicting how solar activity will warm or cool the ocean. But, from 2000 on, they were predicting cooling.

2007, we got it. 2007 was significantly cooler and that was the first major downturn in the temperature in 30 years. That cooling has persisted — at this point, in temperature, about back where we were in the year 1900.

And this kind of information just completely unhinges the section of the population that has decided that they have finally gotten the tool they can use to make Western Civilization destroy itself.  The flecks of spittle that I have seen sprayed around on this blog are nothing compared to the vitriol poured out by the true believers on those who actually stand athwart their ideas and stay “STOP”.

But remember this too:

Another thing I have noticed is that even the global warming alarmists were right: the solutions that they’re suggesting don’t come close to fixing the problems. Kyoto, these cap and trade schemes, they are really expensive and actually do very little to reduce greenhouse gasses. Any thoughts on that?

They’re really talking about going back to the Great Depression. Nobody has a car, nobody could afford the fuel if they had a car. They’re talking about living a hundred yards from the factory, except there isn’t going to be a factory because there is not going to be any coal burning to power it. No nuclear power, no drilling for oil, no hope.

I just want to remind you that there are millions of people in the Third World, women and children, heating and cooking with cow manure, firewood that they gather off the mountainside. The air pollution in some of those areas is equal to a 2 pack a day cigarette habit. …If there’s no kerosene, no propane, no nuclear electricity, are we all going to be in that situation?

Did we say 100 months? We meant 48 months

Yesterday it was 100 months.   Same paper, new deadline:

No surprise that climate scientists have become increasingly desperate for action. In November, for instance, the head of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Rajendra Pachauri, said: “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.”

The increasingly frantic calls for the rape of world-wide taxpayers (especially American ones) gates on the ear of this person who’s pocket is expected to be picked for this man-made hysteria.  No temperature increase in 10 years, the data was not correct in lots of models, temperatures much much higher in the past without any SUVs or power plants – perhaps lots of this information is starting to become more widely known.  And that means more people will realize that the man-made global warming issue isn’t as straightforward as the hystericals want us to believe.

And then they won’t give up their money!  Isn’t that the real cause of the ever-shortening deadlines?

They go to all that work to develop a scheme whereby the developed countries of the world are to use their own resources to destroy their civilization, and a bunch of low-forehead nosepickers won’t give it up.

I mean a 50% global cut is now not enough – they essentially want to move back into the dark ages (literally):

The call for an 80% cut must be heard by Gordon Brown. This is the minimum of what is needed by 2050, and if he really wants to make “massive progress” then he has an opportunity when he gets home.

If we go the full distance, put an 80% cut in the bill and include emissions from international aviation and shipping (both of which are presently excluded), then if might just lead to a global breakthrough.

And never, ever forget.  The fault is all to be laid at the feet of ……..

George W Bush

Judging Bush on the basis of what he has done for our children, their children and the next 50 generations, he has solidified his record of helping ensure that billions and billions of people suffer the grim consequences of catastrophic climate change.

They do realize that they are quite free to destroy all their cars and power plants and go back to living in mud huts and walking in their own filth at any time?  Feel free to lead us on that on you idiots.

How the EcoNazis Think – No New Supplies

Here’s a typical environmental view – high oil prices make oil sands economically feasible – which is a BAD thing! Processing the oil sands will create carbon – a bad bad bad thing:

Oil sands are a mixture of sand, water and sticky oil that need enormous amounts of heat to extract usable quantities of conventional oil. Reserves of oil sands in Canada are equivalent to 174 billion barrels of oil, making it the second largest reserve after that of Saudi Arabia. Canadian oil sand production becomes economically viable once oil reaches $US30 a barrel. Considering the price of oil, there has been huge investment in oil-sand production over the past decade. Production is more than 1 million barrels a day, with some forecasting fourfold expansion by 2030. Oil sands in Canada are three to four times more greenhouse gas intensive than conventional oil, and that is why Canada’s greenhouse emissions have surged over the past decade.

So conventional oil is bad – oil sands are worse. You had better start breeding horses or get those walking shoes going. Because there is absolutely nothing that any environmentalist wants more than to turn the clock back about 300 years.

High oil prices in the absence of imposing a carbon price on fuel will drive Australian coal-to-oil production, like oil sands in Canada, so as to fill the void of dwindling conventional oil supplies. A carbon price in transport is critical to avoid this and to create new investment in Australia’s low carbon economic future – whether it is next-generation cellulosic biofuels, battery technology, fuel cells or plug-in electric cars.

Biofuels – starve the poor for transport. Batteries – just where do you think those electricals come from? Same with plug-in electric cars. And anybody who thinks fuel cells are economically feasible should notify their local car manufacturer.

And that horse will produce dung and farts (methane) so that isn’t acceptable either. Complete dissolution of global transport and going back to local subsistence agriculture (without tractors or beasts of burden) seems to be the only acceptable future the EcoNazis want.

And if lots of people die – so much the better.

Environmentalists as Idiots

Wash, Rinse, Repeat:

The U.S. government just put polar bears on the threatened species list because climate change is shrinking the Arctic ice where they live. Never mind that polar bears are in fact thriving — their numbers have quadrupled in the last 50 years. Never mind that full implementation of the Kyoto protocols on greenhouse gases would save exactly one polar bear, according to Danish social scientist Bjorn Lomborg, author of the book “Cool It!” Yet 300 to 500 polar bears could be saved every year, Lomborg says, if there were a ban on hunting them. What’s cheaper — trillions to trim carbon emissions, or a push for a ban on polar bear hunting?

The country is being forced to subscribe to a modern version of transubstantiation, whereby corn is miraculously transformed into sinless energy even as it does worse damage than oil.

Plastic grocery bags are being banned, even though they require less energy to make and recycle than paper ones.

But the polar bears make for such cute, cuddly pictures.  I am married to someone who has seen the aftereffects of these little cuties tearing off people’s arms and legs however, so I’m not quite so sure its a good thing to have them on the endangered list.

9th Circus – Screw America, We Want Whales

and the most overturned appeals court (I believe the circuit court mention in the clip is incorrect), will again be overruled by the Supremes. But it will again take time and money.It does prove their complete and utter contempt for anything other than their own power.
clipped from www.thedonovan.com
And our favorite 9th circuit court in San Francisco rules that the Navy is not exempt from the Environmental Act that prohibits the use of sonar in the area. Even after the president signed an executive order to exempt the Navy from the act. In other words, any enemy submarine like, you know, Iranian, North Korean, Chinese, Russian, etc, etc, etc could set in this 12 mile area (which is huge in terms of sea searches) waiting to bomb the crud out of the United States and the Navy is prohibited from using sonar to detect them in that space in order to protect the whales.

$40,000 Fine or Six Months in Jail for Littering

From the UK:

A young mother-of-three is to be tried by a crown court jury after being accused of throwing an apple core from her car on to the pavement.

Kate Badger, 26, denies the littering charge but also claims the nature of the accusation is “ridiculous” because apples are biodegradable.

The council originally wanted simply to issue a £60 on-the-spot penalty for the alleged offence, said to have been committed on March 19 last year while Miss Badger’s Volkswagen Golf was parked on a street in Wolverhampton town centre.

Miss Badger refused to pay and the local authority took her to the magistrates’ court, where she chose to be tried by a jury in a crown court.

She faces a fine of up to £20,000 or six months in prison if she is found guilty of the charge, which states that she threw “controlled waste” from the car.

Oh how this must warm the hearts of the US EcoNazis. They only hope that this kind of power comes their way.
