Obama, Congress Target US Public

The Climate Hoax has reached Pearl Harbor proportions. Illegitimate President B. Hussein Obama has now fired upon the American Public in a bellicose attack based on the most colossal forgery and sham of the century, anthropogenic global warming.

From the UK Guardian:


Obama targets US public with call for climate action

Climate impacts report warns of flooding, heat waves, drought and loss of wildlife that will occur if Americans fail to act on global warming

Suzanne Goldenberg, US environment correspondent, guardian.co.uk, 16 June 2009 [here]

The Obama administration is poised for its most forceful confrontation with the American public on the sweeping and life-altering consequences of a failure to act on global warming with the release today of a long-awaited scientific report on climate change.

The report, produced by more than 30 scientists at 13 government agencies dealing with climate change, provides the most detailed picture to date of the worst case scenarios of rising sea levels and extreme weather events: floods in lower Manhattan; a quadrupling of heat waves deaths in Chicago; withering on the vineyards of California; the disappearance of wildflowers from the slopes of the Rockies; and the extinction of Alaska’s wild polar bears in the next 75 years.

Today’s release is part of a carefully crafted strategy by the White House to help build public support for Obama’s agenda and boost the prospects of a climate change bill now making its way through Congress.

Thirty scientists? Thirty thousand scientists have signed a petition declaring that “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate” [here].

Some 800 scientists, economists, legislators, policy activists, and media representatives attended the Third International Conference on Climate Change, in March, with 80 speakers and 60 co-sponsoring organizations expressing the viewpoint that “global warming is not a crisis, that it is probably natural and not caused by human activity, and that computer models are unreliable guides to future temperature change” [here].

In addition:

* Sea levels have not risen in three years [here]. After a rapid rise during the first 8,000 years of the Holocene, sea levels have risen only 2 mm per year for the last 2,000 years [here]. Yet that natural increase has slowed of late as polar ice has increased.

* Hurricanes and tornadoes hve declined in number and strength in recent years and have been shown to be related to natural oceanic oscillations, not falsely alleged global warming [here, here].

* There have been no floods in Lower Manhattan. Terrorist bombings perped by Islamo-Fascists yes, floods no.

* Cold weather-related human mortality vastly exceeds warm weather-related mortality [here, here]. The carbon taxes proposed by Obama and Congress will kill more people as both heating and air conditioning costs will skyrocket.

* Grapes are not “withering on the vine,” wildflowers are not disappearing, and polar bears are not going extinct. Those claims are pure falsehoods. As a matter of fact, over the the last three decades of “global warming”, the world polar bear population has tripled or quadrupled.

* Climate warming, which is not happening, would increase agricultural production. The warmest areas of the planet are also the most productive. That is an undeniable fact.

* Computer model based greenhouse gas theories of runaway global warming have been thoroughly debunked. The earth’s atmosphere, with cloud albedo and tropical heat transfer from the surface to outer space, has kept global temperatures within a range of plus or minus 8 degrees Centigrade for at least the last half a billion years [here], despite asteroid collisions, super volcanoes, flood basalts, and other global catastrophes.

* The carbon taxes to be inflicted by Obama and Congress on America will do absolutely nothing to alter global temperatures — but will destroy our already reeling economy. Mass poverty, disease, and starvation will result worldwide from the despicable hoax-backed blitzkrieg waged upon America by evil-doers, who are reminiscent of the 20th Century megalomanical dictators who perpetrated the greatest inhumanities in recorded history.

The time has come to impeach the entire US Congress and the illegitimate President, and replace the evil hoaxers with rational, pro-American, pro-human representatives.

There is no point in writing letters to criminals and traitors in public office. Instead, petitions for recall should be prepared and signatures gathered. There is no time to waste. Dump your Congressperson and Senators now. Concurrently, a total housecleaning of worthless government functionaries should be enacted — fire everyone regardless of past performance — and restock government offices with entirely new personnel, chastened by the upheaval that proceeded them.

The hoax-based, ruthless, and destructive attacks on America waged by our own government against the citizenry must be abated and extinguished immediately.

In response to the report, I posted this on an eco-website:

“The idea that we need to preserve the current unnatural and overstocked forest conditions by correcting climate change is ridiculous. There seems to be no mention at all of comparisons of today’s forests to those that existed before Europeans came here. Forest densities MUST be corrected to reflect the annual precipitation, regardless of how it differs from one million, one thousand or one hundred years ago. Insects and wildfires are “natural” responses to the changes man has made on historic (and even pre-historic) forests. Indians created forests that reflected those ideas but, probably didn’t know the science behind them. Indians also had VERY destructive practices (by today’s standards) that radically altered their environment. (For example, the current Willamette Valley had VERY little in the way of conifers because the Indians consistently set fires that burned them out.) This seems to be an idea that confound today’s environmentalists, who would like to preserve the unnatural conditions, like overstocking and radical changes in species composition, in their present-day state.

Returning forests to pre-Man conditions is outright impossible and completely undesirable. On the other hand, returning forests to pre-European conditions is, in many areas, is politically unpalatable in today’s America. Luckily, international scientists do see the big picture and are just fine with forest restoration without the political bias against forest management. Too many Americans have a vision of how they think forests SHOULD be and not what science says it SHOULD be.

Our forest problems have WAY more to do with modern man’s direct impacts on forests than “climate change”. As environmentalists are soooo fond of saying; “Forests have done just fine for millions of years without man’s hand. Why do we need to meddle with them now?” Well, Indians had some hand in there, and not just a little tinkering. Finally, will those environmentalists see that today’s forests are NOT “doing just fine”, these days? The folly of “re-wilding” is just impossible with the amount of population and infrastructure within our forests. A true “reality check” is in order for people to understand the full “nature” of the problems and solutions to again create forests that survive drought, bugs and fires. It’s not enough to send volleys of “if only’s” and “let nature take its course’s”, only to watch our forests disappear in greater and greater numbers. Some of those forests will NOT come back for hundreds of years, or even longer.

The time has truly come to manage our forests or lose them, in all too many cases. The IPCC seems to be rather weak on forest ecology, and we can’t just stand by and watch them die, rot and burn.”

It has been posted for several hours now and there has been no rebuttal,………YET!

The Blathering Left has blathered themselves into a corner. They “protect” forests by burning them to the ground. “Rewilding” is not a return to prior conditions but introduction of brand new ones that are utterly unsustainable.

Their political positions regarding forests are a-historical, a-scientific, racist to beat the band, and wholly destructive of the very thing they purport to desire to “save.”

Ignorance is not bliss — it is dangerous and deadly. If the Precautionary Principle has any utility, it should be applied to precautions against galloping ignorance.

Larry:

Great post with excellent points. It will be interesting to see what response (if any) you get.

It is also interesting to note that the findings of fire ecologists, wildlife biologists, conservation biologists, and some forest ecologists are diametrically opposite the findings of other forest ecologists, anthropologists, fire historians, and historical ecologists.

One side seems to be confusing “opinions of scientists” with “scientific findings” is my opinion. Unfortunately, it is that group that is setting federal policy, hogging most of the research funding, staffing our state and federal agencies, and teaching at our universities.

Too much dead wood at too many levels.

Kudos Larry.

It might be worth noting that the author of the article cited in the post is a flaming alarmist. Suzanne Goldenberg has made her career by writing the most extreme ninny articles about the demise of all life on Earth due to global warming. Her report (above) on Obama’s “forceful confrontation with the American public” is written in praise of such. She wants the President to attack the public, to punish the public, to act like a total ass and dictator.

People like Suzanne Goldenberg are completely removed from reality. She’s a basket case. But she’s also typical of the knee-jerk Left, who hate everything about America and most especially our freedoms.

Your audience at the eco-wacko site, Larry, are basket-case morons like Suzanne. Something to keep in mind.
