At this point, it may be easier to compile a list of the Federal Government employees whose computers DIDN’T “crash”.
This time, it’s the EPA which is allegedly suffering from Compu Spontaneius Breakus. But to place this newest chapter into context, a quick refresher is called for:
(via National Journal) – “…Issa issued a subpoena in November for documents and communications between the Environmental Protection Agency and the Executive Office of the President over a five-year period as part of an inquiry into whether the White House interfered with how the agency responded to congressional inquiries.
We’re all aware by now of the delightfully ironic story coming out of (Summertime) Antarctica, about the climate research ship that is stuck solid in thick ice. Chinese, Russian and Australian icebreakers have turned back for fear of also getting caught in the grip of the ice sheets. Apparently these climate researchers are there to update data that was obtained 100 years ago by another climate research team. That word “update” has my radar on high alert. Does update mean ‘change’ or ‘alter’ the data to fit more in line with their global warming agenda? What exactly needs updating?
At any rate, back to this photograph (see below), there are several remarkable things that jump out at me when I look at it. It’s a picture of a science expeditions chief scientist, Alexander Stevens, taken in McMurdo Bay, Antarctica, in 1914. What can be seen in this photo that…
Hmmmm, …makes sense. Of course, it’s perfectly logical that the inordinate amount of ice which surprised these researchers enough to TRAP them (and necessitate a rescue), would obviously mean that… the Antarctic ice must be DECREASING.
I stumbled across this article posted on the website Grist — a decidedly pro-climate alarmism site. All of the problems that I have ever run across connected with the Chicken Little Syndrome exhibited by these people can be found in this one article. This little story is so poorly written, it would get a massive F in any journalism course.
It starts off with the usual fear-mongering ominous sounding “It will take six to 10 years, but Christmas is ruined.” Doesn’t this sound remarkably similar to the equally horrifying headlines from a couple of years ago stating that children in the UK will never know what snow is. We all know how that turned…
Though laws dealing with the issue are often criticized by those who do not ascribe to leftist environmental policies, this order is especially dangerous because Obama completely circumvented congressional oversight in its implementation.
The fiat decision, entitled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change,” will have far-reaching effects on the lives of Americans, despite mounting evidence that human activity has no measurable effect on the environment.
