All Weather Is Caused By Global Warming

No one destroys the Global Warming Alarmists’ ridiculous hyperventilating with quite the same aplomb as our buddy, Cosmo.

This post is shorter than normal for him, …but just as lucid. Great stuff.

I listened to an NPR story this morning about wild weather tied to unusual jet stream activity and I waited patiently for the eventual tie in to Global Warming.  I knew it would happen and I was not disappointed.

It’s not clear whether global warming contributed to the recent extreme weather in Colorado, but it is possible, Francis says. That’s because the Arctic is warming up much faster than other areas, which “must have an effect on the jet stream,” Francis says.

Never mind that Arctic sea ice increased this year.  And don’t look at the data showing Arctic sea ice at the same level we were at in 2005.  And by all means, don’t look at the data that show the Arctic sea ice is now ‘normal’ when compared to the average since 1981.

Suspicious #EPA “waiver” still shrouded in secrecy. But why???

Wanted to update this story from earlier: “The Most Transparent Administration EVER strikes again“. 

ethanol - 44444

If you didn’t read that post (and honestly, you probably should…..), the two big questions arising from it were:

  • What was the NAME of the refinery which was singled-out to receive a hugely beneficial waiver from Federal Ethanol renewable fuels requirements, and
  • Why did that refinery, and ONLY that refinery, qualify?

Well, it seems that the Wall Street Journal was able to find 1-out-of-2: we now have a name. Unfortunately, that name doesn’t exactly remove the mystery from this newest demonstration of Obama-era ‘transparency’:

The Most Transparent Administration EVER strikes again

In the last 5+ years we’ve heard some outlandish knee-slappers from the current Administration: “Smart Power“, “I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money“, and one of my personal favorites: “The System Worked…”.

But perhaps no quote was as patently ridiculous as this one: “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency…

Transparency - Obama

I could spend all week on “…the Rule Of Law...” aspect of that, so for today let’s just concentrate on the first part: transparency. This crew has been the antithesis of ‘Transparent’ in virtually everything, and we can now add one more example into the pantheon of their deliberately opaque practices.

(VIDEO) – Crazy, Vile Eco-freaks attack Mine site in #Wisconsin…

Pretend for a minute that a video existed which showed out-of-control, right-wing, Conservative Republicans with their faces hidden by masks and bandannas. Pretend they were all screaming, cursing and basically behaving like your average Muslim Brotherhood supporters.

Not just audio, mind you: VIDEO.

Write what you're toldIs it any stretch of the imagination to assume that such a video would be shown on every News Channel, every 20 minutes, …PLUS Comedy Central, …PLUS all the daytime shows?

Such a video DOES exist, …but since it concerns folks on the Left behaving like animals, the media has immediately begun channeling Marcel Marceau, and thus we don’t hear so much as a peep from them.

The following story springs from Wisconsin, a state which has already seen more than its share of crazy Lefty activity in the last couple of years, as you might “recall”.

Thanks to legislation signed by Governor Scott Walker this year, there’s an open-pit iron mine being developed up in northern Wisconsin. Since this will provide resources, jobs and be a general boon to the economy, NATURALLY the Left has a visceral hatred for it and wants to shut it down immediately.

San Jose State University Meteorology decides burning books they don’t agree with is better than reading them

Remember the old days, when our Colleges, Universities & various Institutes of Higher Learning all bragged that they existed to encourage an “open exchange of ideas”?? That they wanted to teach kids HOW to think, not WHAT to think??

Not any more, they don’t…

Watts Up With That?

From the Fahrenheit 451 department comes this indictment of California’s higher education’s “tolerance” for opposing views. When I first got the tip on this, I thought to myself “nobody can be this stupid to photograph themselves doing this” but, here they are, right from the San Jose State University Meteorology Department web page:

The caption from the SJSU website reads:

This week we received a deluge of free books from the Heartland Institute {this or this }. The book is entitled “The Mad, Mad, Made World of Climatism”. SHown above, Drs. Bridger and Clements test the flammability of the book.

Maybe they just can’t help themselves, note the pictures on the wall.

The EPA’s newest and bestest idea ever: the “Rain Tax”

Somebody, please, wake me up when the lunacy is over…

From baltimore.cbslocal.com:

The nickname is rain tax, and the more hard surfaces you have–like a parking lot–the harder it’s going to bite.

When rain falls on rooftops or other hard structures like driveways and parking lots, it scours away chemicals from air pollution, eventually running off into the Chesapeake Bay.

It’s a big source of those poor grades given to the bay’s health in annual report cards.

“The Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams are overloaded with too much nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment,” said Will Baker, Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

Which destroys water quality and feeds algae blooms that create dead zones. So Maryland’s legislature has created the impervious surface tax.

“The impervious surface tax would have an enormous impact. We have 200 sites throughout the state of Maryland. If you look at Our Daily Bread for example, the proposed fee would be $5,000,” said Bill McCarthy, Dir. Catholic Charities. And that’s for just this one property of Catholic charities.

Yes, you read that exactly right.

The Great Green Con

More proof of history’s greatest hoax.

Quixotes Last Stand

David Rose — Daily Mail — March 16, 2013

No, the world ISN’T getting warmer (as you may have noticed). Now we reveal the official data that’s making scientists suddenly change their minds about climate doom. So will eco-funded MPs stop waging a green crusade with your money? Well… what do YOU think?

The Mail on Sunday today presents irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed.

The graph on this page blows apart the ‘scientific basis’ for Britain reshaping its entire economy and spending billions in taxes and subsidies in order to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. These moves have already added £100 a year to household energy bills.
