Chief Climate Hoaxer Emits Call For Revolution

There is no global warming. It’s not happening. The planet has been cooling for the last ten years and the outlook is more cooling for another thirty or more (see Global Cooling Is Here! Evidence for Predicting Global Cooling For the Next Three Decades, [here]).

But that doesn’t faze chief climate hysterical alarmist Al Gore. From yesterday’s NY Times [here]:

The Climate for Change

By AL GORE, NY Times, November 9, 2008

THE inspiring and transformative choice by the American people to elect Barack Obama as our 44th president lays the foundation for another fateful choice that he — and we — must make this January to begin an emergency rescue of human civilization from the imminent and rapidly growing threat posed by the climate crisis.

The electrifying redemption of America’s revolutionary declaration that all human beings are born equal sets the stage for the renewal of United States leadership in a world that desperately needs to protect its primary endowment: the integrity and livability of the planet.

The world authority on the climate crisis, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, after 20 years of detailed study and four unanimous reports, now says that the evidence is “unequivocal.” To those who are still tempted to dismiss the increasingly urgent alarms from scientists around the world, ignore the melting of the north polar ice cap and all of the other apocalyptic warnings from the planet itself, and who roll their eyes at the very mention of this existential threat to the future of the human species, please wake up. Our children and grandchildren need you to hear and recognize the truth of our situation, before it is too late.

Revolutionary rhetoric from Al to be sure, but flat earth wrong! Here’s the TRUTH. There has been no significant global warming since 1995. From Ross McKitrick, U of Guelph, testimony before the House Energy and Air Quality Subcommittee in Washington last summer [here]:

Weather satellite records for the mid-troposphere are available from Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) in California and the Earth Systems Science Center at the University of Alabama-Huntsville (UAH). I obtained the data from each lab for the mid-troposphere layer covering January 1979 to September 2008. Over this interval the annual average atmospheric concentration of CO2 measured at Mauna Loa Hawaii rose from 337 ppm to 384 ppm, a 14% increase. I have graphed the RSS and UAH tropical mid-troposphere series and compared them to the CCSP- and IPCC-predicted trends (0.25 C/decade and 0.5 C/decade respectively). In contrast to climate model predictions the data indicate neither significant warming in the tropics nor greater warming than at the poles.

There is no connection between CO2 and global warming. A doesn’t cause B. CO2 has been going up (gradually) but global temperatures have been going down. Al Gore’s theory is wrong.

Arctic sea ice has not been melting. From Arctic Ice Extent Now Likely Highest Level Since 2002 by Joseph D’Aleo of ICECAP [here]:

The latest daily arctic sea ice extent chart from IJIS shows the current year ice extent at the highest level in the record back to 2002. This represents an increase of 655,781 square kilometers over last November 7 or 7.4%. Side-by-side images from the Cryosphere show there is more ice on both the Pacific and Atlantic side this year.

What would truly be “inspiring and transformative” would be for the governments of the world to reject Al’s bogus hypothesis in the face of the actual facts to the contrary. “America’s revolutionary declaration” ought to be that bogosity and hoax should not and will not be inflicted on the citizenry.

As Lord Monkton put it [here]:

With every respect, there is no rational basis for your declared intention that your great nation should inflict upon her own working people and upon the starving masses of the Third World the extravagantly-pointless, climatically-irrelevant, strategically-fatal economic wounds that the arrogant advocates of atmospheric alarmism admit they aim to achieve.

The globe is NOT warming, and if it was, it would be a GOOD thing. Warmer climate means more biological and agricultural productivity, less expense for heating, more rain, and more biological diversity. The planet was warmer than now during the Medieval Warm Period, the Roman Warm Period, and the Climatic Optimums of 9,000 and 6,000 years ago. Those were good times, with bumper crops, a green Sahara, and intellectual and cultural advancements. The historical warm periods mark the rise of civilization and the Renaissance.

Al Gore’s revolutionary rhetoric is absurd and disingenuous. He is a laughable clown. In these days of pending worldwide economic collapse, the very WORST thing we could do is hearken to the jibber-jabber of the Carbon Foot Prince.

Note that in September Al “Che” Gore called on the youth of America to engage in acts of “civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants” [here].

And last January B. Obama told the SF Chronicle that if elected he would bankrupt coal-fueled power plants [here]:

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

So we have all that to look forward to. Revolution, civil disobedience, cap and trade, power plant bankruptcies, economic collapse, brown-outs and black-outs, rioting in the streets, all to “solve” a problem that does not exist and wouldn’t be a problem if it did.

Way to vote, geniuses.
