Don’t Forget the TRUTHS of Climate Change

The following is a  five minute rational lecture without leftist terror tales and political hysterics regarding our Earth’s warming climate…….Presented by RICHARD LINDZEN  at Prager University:
“Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities…but what do scientists say about climate change? Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world’s leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change…..”
Please view and study below,  Prager University’s  outstanding five minute lecture regarding  the Truths of  Earth’s “Climate Change” in contrast to our present world of gross ignorance and deceptive politics taught by  our fascistic  Leftist political  propagandists.  The Earth IS warming a bit.  It is the Sun, itself, not us Americans, which is today and will continue heating our atmosphere up until its our planet’s death  in a billion or two years from now.
Happy campfire to all of you lefties who plot your police control over our human beings “forever”  today and tomorrow.

Con Man Al Gore’s Thievery of Global Warming Truth

Since the 1960s Americans have become dumber and dumber about nearly everything important in life.     Learnings of life, Earth, seeking the truths of  today and yesterday, exploring the mysteries of the past and present have been made to disappear by the  NEW WORLD OF THE  FASCISTIC LEFT.

Rioters,  black lives matter and feminist ditzies and fascists, killers,  screamers, thugs, thieves,   illegals, social ‘science’ college degreed  made  loose and fancy free to enjoy  thrills, perversions,  the violent, the ignorant,  the drugged, the freedom  from accumulating knowledge.

Learning matters of value seem to bore.

And then there is con-artist,  Democrat Party’s Al Gore, chunky millionaire sleaze bag salesman of global warming, father of the fraud that American produced “poison”  carbon dioxide will be  killing us all in twenty years or less……an idea he came up with shortly after failing to become American President in 2000.

The Earth, I’ve been told,  is four and a half or more billion years old.  I garden.   I once learned life cannot exist upon our Earth without carbon dioxide.    Gore was raised in a hotel.   He profits from   the idea that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a poison.   Rumor has it that if carbon dioxide increased ten fold over the next century, the vegetative world would be producing more vegetation.  We, he would most likely become a helluva lot taller, fatter, fatter than Al Gore  already is from the money he’s made selling his noise.

About fourteen thousand years ago where I am sitting here in Twin City, Minnesota, I  and everyone else around here would be dead, buried  under perhaps a thousand feet of glacial ice….THANK GOD FOR GLOBAL WARMING here in gopher country!

About 70,000,000 years ago TYRANOSAURUS REX and kind bigger and smaller were running around a much warmer Earth where North and South Dakota exist today.  Ferns grew a hundred feet tall.   They all disappeared when that meteor decided to dive into the Gulf of Mexico a few million years later bringing a change in the weather throughout the globe  by blocking out the Sun for quite a while.

With the above in mind, please read the following article by John Hinderaker, an indoor man, a conservative who writes political articles at PowerLine.

Of course, we may be wrong, might we not?   And perhaps you’re protected by being a feminist of all sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes who in life prefer to express feelings rather than seek TRUTH.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/09/is-the-earths-climate-history-largely-a-fraud.php

THE FAKE NEWS OF GLOBAL WARMING

Fake news is a big, big sell these days in our American   communication and schooling industries now run by leftist ‘Democrat’ feminized and racified Marxists in our United States.    Ignorance is vital to today’s American feminized and racified Democrats.  It is taught so ‘religiously’ from coast to coast.   Nearly every citizen under the age of fifty as learned to know nothing about the outdoors.   The wealthier urban leftists in our gopherland seldom visit the outdoors.  They travel from kitchen to auto to parking ramp without ever feeling sun, shower, or snow.   They demand comfort first.     Only conservatives seem to be concerned about seeking Truth.

So what is the Truth about global warming?   BILLIONS OF DOLLARS has been collected or received  by the great bureaucracies of the world since the invention that THE EARTH IS WARMING WITH CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE OF WHITE MAN’S CULTURES AND INVENTIONS OVER THE CENTURIES….MOSTLY DURING THE TWENTIETH.   AMERICA, that is the working American, not the millions on welfare,  must be punished, fined, crippled for the nation’s economic and industrial  crimes.    (Leftist Democrat politicos and news fakers love the charge.   Leftist college blacks and feminists of all shapes, sexes, sizes and colors riot, write, and pillage from their sufferings.)  “The Earth must be made equal, especially in their learnedlessness in order to make leftists comfortable in their skin and body”  professor politicos preach.

Sixty years ago I did manage a Bachelor’s degree in Geography which required certain class learnings in geology, geomorphology, astronomy, climatology when grades had meaning over  leftism’s indoctrinations.   Religion of note then was JudeoChristianity which disdained telling, teaching lies.

Yet, it isn’t this particular place of education where I learned some prehistoric geography in my youth….Living then in Minnesota learning something about the outdoors was vital in the public school curriculum I was blessed with.   We had to learn about local matters….why did  our gopherland have so many lakes.   Where did all of these trillions of  boulders come from?   Why is it so cold and windy in winter? Where did all of these Swedes, Norse, Finns, and Germans come from?  And, the Indians, the Chippewa and Sioux?

We were taught that as recently as 15,000 years ago  where ever  we lived, stood, or sat in St. Paul and northward, the ground we lived on was 1,000 feet under glacial ice.   THANK GOD FOR GLOBAL WARMING!

I shall be 83 soon.   I have been an outdoor boy, lad, teen, young man, and even when I became a Republican in 1980 and thereafter.   I fell in love with the beauty of the outdoor plant world.   I also learned Russian, as a duty to my country, and earned a graduate degree in Soviet Studies which led me to visit the good old socialist dictatorship of fake democracy, the  USSR in 1966 and again in 1990.

We have had a cool summer here in outdoor Minnesota.  Last winter was a mild winter and the last two winters snowfall has been overall rather light.

Up to about fifty years ago April was a winter month….snow and ice still commanded the ground here in the Twin Cities every Sunday we celebrated Easter.   These days, the Dutch spring bulbs are all in bloom by tax day.    Yes, there has been some degree of warming here in the Twin Cities….much of it due to the asphalt and concrete overwhelming the geography for about the 5,000 square miles now occupied by human animals in and around the Twin Cities.

Communist China has warmed up as well.  But their citizens are not white, of JudeoChristian guilt about  misdeeds, or live in even a slightly freedom-oriented or tolerant culture. They have no global warming industry fighting their fascists.  Communist China doesn’t send billions to sell global warming propaganda.   They aren’t white Americans.

Like today’s  Charles Schumer Democrat Party  of the United States, THE STATE DECIDES the fate of the population  with a basket or two of perks maybe.   National ‘health care’ systems usually begin killing off their elderly masses  to save money…..for leftist salaries…..as has become the habit in today’s Britain as well in  other European socialisms…..a fate our Uncle Sam’s elderly will be experiencing soon.

That the globe has been warming some in my lifetime where I live is true in my experience.   During the glacial eras in our American northland, our American Indians trekked from Siberia across to Alaska probably to seek food and warmth, killed off the Mammoths for survival.

Do you know where North Dakota and South Dakota are?   Some 70,000,000 years ago dinosaurs including Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Brontosauruses ran wild amid jungles of ferns 100 feet tall….without a snow flake in sight….at least that is what I learned in public  schools I attended.

I wonder whom the Democrats blamed for the global cooling?   How would they punish a meteor?

Democrats have become evil oriented in America these days.   Fascism pushed by feminist fanatics and black racists, the nation’s atheist wealthy,  and supported by millions of legal and illegal relatively unschooled  immigrants has  now become a powerful political force alive in our America.   That global warming is caused by the American white of the past century has an element of truth attached.   Yes, the industrial age in America provided a wealth beyond historical record.

Millions of Americans have become rich from the fraud of global warming.   Al Gore is our most famous global warming fake, the fraud  scaring the daylights of countless millions of the unaware….  TODAY’S HUMAN ANIMAL DOES NOT KNOW IF MANKIND’S ‘PROGRESS’ IS THE CAUSE OF THIS RATHER MILD HALF CENTURY OF EARTH’S ATMOSPHERIC WARMING.    THE EARTH HAS BEEN A LOT HOTTER AND A LOT COLDER DURING ITS FOUR TO FIVE TRILLION YEARS OF RUNNING AROUND OUR  SUN.

WE HUMAN ANIMALS DO KNOW, HOWEVER, THAT OUR STAR, THE SUN, WILL EVENTUALLY ‘RUN OUT OF GAS’….AS IT IS DOING  A BIT EVERY DAY, AS DEMOCRATS SELL THEIR FAKE NEWS OF POLITICS AND WEATHER THAT WHITE REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HORROR AND DEATH BY GLOBAL WARMING, TOO…especially since Our Donald has become PRESIDENT!

Paris…Trump Blocks First of Obama’s ‘Three Authoritarianisms’

Paris: Trump Blocks First of Obama’s ‘Three Authoritarianisms’

by Roger L. Simon   at PJMedia:

“Sometimes — maybe almost always — the world seems to run on Freudian projection. One of the salient recent examples is Barack Obama’s supporters — and Obama himself, literally and by implication — calling Donald Trump “authoritarian.”

But in non-projected reality, during his administration, Obama is the one who imposed what we might deem — in appropriately Maoist parlance — the “Three Authoritarianisms.” They were the Paris climate accord, the Iran deal, and US intelligence agencies being used to surveil American citizens.

All three of these “authoritarianisms” were entirely ex-Constitutional.  The first two were in essence treaties on which Congress (and by extension the American people) never got to vote or, for that matter, discuss in any serious way.  The Paris accord probably would have failed. As for the Iran deal, we still don’t know the full contents and therefore debating it is somewhat moot. We have, however, seen its consequences — corpses littered all across Syria, not to mention untold millions of refugees.

Admittedly, too, the third of “Three Authoritarianisms” is still, shall we say, occluded.  We don’t know the extent of this surveillance and may never. But this too is typical authoritarian behavior.

Even a cursory look at history reveals that totalitarianism does not always come with the obvious iron fist of a Comrade Stalin.  Sometimes it arrives in a subtler manner, as it did in the Obama administration when the then president’s amanuensis/lackey Ben Rhodes was so naive or arrogant (or both) as to brag to a New York Times writer how he duped young and uneducated reporters into parroting what the administration wanted them to say about the Iran deal.  The KGB couldn’t have done it better.

In the cases of Paris and Iran, it’s clear the (totalitarian) decision to avoid Congress was deliberate.  But now Trump has put a crimp in the former by pulling out of the Paris climate ( global warming) accord. The international chorus of hissy fits was so instantaneous and predictable — no more eminent scientist than actor Mark Ruffalo has declared “Trump will have the death of whole nations on his hands” — one must ask the obligatory question: Was it ever really about climate or was it, in the immortal words of  H. L. Mencken, “about the money“?”

Good Riddance to UN’s Paris Climate Agreement Fraud!

We receive regular dispatches from Craig Rucker, Executive Director of the COMMITTEE FOR A CONSTRUCTIVE TOMORROW, a group challenging the certitude of the Left’s union of propagandists backing  “Climate Change” sanctity.

With the collapse of public and private traditional learnings based upon knowledge throughout America over the past two generations,  ignorance, leftism, feminist lunacy, and black racism have become  violent  powerhouses of today’s and tomorrow’s Obamaland ‘citizenship’ development.

Global Warming fraud is a major chapter in this fascist group’s digest.  It is an Obamaland claim which swipes its funding  from the American working middle class to pay their Godless political rich, support  phony-only professors and other Socialist Democrat leftist tyrants,  the nation’s entire news and education industry.

Below is yesterday’s epistle from CFACT….and what a welcomed one it is for those of us who both  love Our Donald and Our America!

“Trump reportedly exiting Paris!
Leaving the Climate Agreement
means a cleaner Earth

Administration officials say President Trump has decided to officially exit the UN’s Paris Climate Agreement!

If this holds true, it is great news for America, the environment, and the world. 

The UN’s Paris Climate Agreement imposes massive economic burdens, redistributes fortunes, lines the pockets of profiteers and dictators all while having little or no impact on the temperature of the Earth.  It will impoverish people and pressure the environment. 

It is the most expensive all-pain, no-gain scenario imaginable. 

America would be making the right move in breaking free.

At its founding, America was a developing nation.  Getting enough calories and protein in your diet was not a sure thing.  For many, hunting was not about sport or wildlife management, but survival.  In more settled areas game became scarce.

Why is today’s America canopied by trees and teeming with turkeys, deer, bear, waterfowl, you name it? 

Because American economic freedom has made food so plentiful that today the problem is all about people eating too much, not too little.   Nature has also rebounded so successfully that we could actually use more hunters, not less. 

When the price of energy rises above what people can afford, forests disappear as people turn to firewood.  When food becomes scarce and expensive, people pressure the land and animals vanish. 

In Africa, habitats disappear and species become endangered when people turn to “bush meat” to put protein on their tables. Even in highly developed Germany, trees vanish when government pushes the price of energy above people’s means.

In America free-market innovations such as hydraulic fracturing are defying hostile bureaucracies to keep energy affordable.  It took new supplies of natural gas to reduce American CO2 emissions (if that’s your thing) while expensive government solutions remain feckless.

Climate scientist Dr. Roy Spencer writes “human health and prosperity depend upon access to affordable energy. Unfortunately, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and its 2015 Paris Climate Treaty, will hurt the human condition by making that energy much more expensive.”

The warming crowd is going way over the top to paint a dire picture of what will happen if President Trump exits the UN Climate Agreement.  We provided a taste of the hysteria brewing on the climate Left at CFACT.org

Congratulations to President Trump for reportedly seeing past the hype.

As Dr. Spencer reminds us, “the truth is, we owe it to the poor to get out.” “

Your Taxes to Fund Climate Change “Music”

 

$697,177 for a ‘Climate-Change Musical’: You Call That Science?

Research is often a wise investment of tax dollars—but agencies also fund ridiculous boondoggles.

Research is the lifeblood of technological innovation, which drives economic growth and keeps America competitive. Government-funded scientific research runs the gamut from studies of basic physical and biological processes to the development of applications to meet immediate needs. Unfortunately, the definition of what constitutes “science” has gradually expanded to include sociology, economics and woo-woo “alternative medicine.” Much of the spending on these disciplines by the nation’s two major funders of nonmilitary research, the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, is systematically shortchanging taxpayers.

The NSF, whose mission is to ensure U.S. leadership in areas of science and technology that are essential to economic growth and national security, frequently funds politically correct but low-value research projects. A few doozies include the veiling-fashion industry in Turkey, Viking textiles in Iceland, the “social impacts” of tourism in the northern tip of Norway, and whether hunger causes couples to fight (using the number of pins stuck in voodoo dolls as a measure of aggressive feelings). Research funding in the geosciences, including climate change, is certainly legitimate, but not when it goes to ludicrous boondoggles such as a climate-change musical that cost $697,177 to produce.

The primary culprit is the NSF’s Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences, known as SBE. Underlying its ability to dispense grants is the wrongheaded notion that social-science projects such as a study of animal depictions in National Geographic and a climate change musical are as important as research to identify early markers for Alzheimer’s disease or pancreatic cancer.

In January President Obama signed the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act, which accomplished little with respect to setting funding priorities other than endorsing the only two criteria NSF had previously used to evaluate grant applications—the “intellectual merit” of the proposal and its “broader impacts” on society. The bill’s lead proponent, House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, had wanted to include a “national interest” criterion defined by several factors including improving economic competitiveness, health, national security, the STEM workforce and scientific literacy.

In the end the national interest standard was retained, but only to provide examples of how grant applicants can satisfy NSF’s “broader impacts” requirement. In other words, SBE will continue funding marginal research by social scientists—what a former NSF official characterized as “the inmates running the asylum.”

As for the NIH, most of its budget—currently about $32 billion, with another $2 billion in the just-approved omnibus spending bill—goes to fund grant proposals from researchers all over the country. The proposals are not judged by their merits across all disciplines, but are divided by categories of research—cancer, aging, eye, etc. But one institute that is the brainchild of politicians—the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (formerly the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine)—on average does far-less-significant work than the others, but receives a significant amount of grant funding.

NCCIH’s stated mission is “to define, through rigorous scientific investigation, the usefulness and safety of complementary and integrative health interventions and their roles in improving health and health care.” But “complementary and integrative” often means implausible and poorly designed, because peer review at this institute permits the funding of such projects.

One study supported by the center found that cranberry juice cocktail was no better than a placebo at preventing recurring urinary-tract infections. Other supported studies include “Long-Term Chamomile Therapy of Generalized Anxiety Disorder,” “The Use of Narrative in Public Health Research and Practice” and “Restorative Yoga for Therapy of the Metabolic Syndrome.”

The more credible studies in research fields funded by NCCIH could be administered more effectively by other NIH components, such as the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke or the National Institute of Mental Health, where they would undergo more rigorous peer review.

In 2016, NIH could afford to fund fewer than 20% of the investigator-initiated research grant proposals it received. That NCCIH is still allowed to spend $124 million annually is an affront to the NIH-funded researchers who are at the cutting edge of their disciplines and face increasing difficulty getting federal funding for studies that rank highly on scientific merit.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has projected that China will overtake the U.S. in research and development spending by around 2019. If the U.S. is to remain competitive in medical and scientific innovation we must increase overall spending—and also be more discerning about the nation’s research priorities. A good first step would be for the scientific community to demand that politicians forego political correctness and prioritize funding for research that is in America’s best interest.
