Mother Earth refuses to cooperate


By Rick Manning

Blame it on the earth, it just refuses to cooperate.

Poor global cooling skeptics are stuck in a pattern of backfilling and desperate explanations as to why their bold predictions of earth’s overheated doom not only haven’t come true, but actually may be 100 percent wrong.

Remember those dire predictions that the North Pole was going to be ice free by 2013?  Santa was going to have to move and the cuddly Coca-Cola polar bears were doomed?

Here is how David Rose in the Daily Mail explains what is actually happening at Santa’s house, “A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year — an increase of 60 per cent.

The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.”

It seems that Santa didn’t need the EPA’s Lisa Jackson, Al Gore and global warmist hockey stick inventor Michael Mann to save him after all.

The Voice of Russia reports that scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg explain that, “solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well.”

First Putin takes President Obama’s lunch money on Syria, now this.  I hate when the commie scientists appear to be willing to confront what appears to be the current climate situation than the western political agenda funded ones.

Now even the self-important sounding International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is reportedly being forced to rewrite a portion of one of their reports to better explain why global warming has paused over the past seventeen years contrary to their predictions.

Of course this same U.N. group was embarrassed when it gave credence to a fairy tale that Himalayan glaciers would be gone by 2035 in their last assessment report so who knows what whoppers will slip into the final version this time.

One thing that is likely not to show up in the report without a lot of hemming and hawing is the above graph which was leaked earlier this year.  The graph shows that the projections by the IPCC reports of global climate change have been crushed by the reality of what is actually happening.

To interpret the graph, FAR stands for First Assessment Report which was produced in 1990.  The SAR, or Second Assessment Report, was produced in 1995, the TAR, or Third Assessment Report, was produced in 2002 with the AR4, or Fourth Assessment Report, released in 2007.  The final version of the leaked report AR5 is due to come out in 2014.

The great news from these graphs leaked from an earlier version of the report is that they clearly show that the earth’s mean temperature has declined from the outlier year of 1998, and at worse has flattened out.  Other reports indicate that 2012 looks to continue this trend line with lower overall temperatures.

This is fantastic news for everyone but the global cooling skeptics and the politicians who abet them.

The professional prognosticators of climate doom have bet their scientific prestige on what should have been a demonstrable increase in the earth’s temperature, which has clearly not manifested.  The anti-western industrial advocates and their political puppets depend upon global warming to accomplish their goal of ending the use of readily available coal, natural gas and oil through a regulatory and legal scourging under the banner of saving the planet.

Politico quotes ClimateProgress’s Joe Romm as clinging to the global warming story incredibly looking to the Arctic for his proof stating, “As for the seeming slowdown in global warming, that turns out to be only true if one looks narrowly at surface air temperatures, where only a small fraction of warming ends up.”

Now for the fun part, he continues, “Arctic sea ice melt has accelerated. Disintegration of the great ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica has sped up. The rate of sea level rise has doubled from last century.”

Besides ignoring the rapid, early ice growth at the North Pole, he also ignores that this year Antarctica’s (the South Pole) ice extent reached record high levels not the disintegration that he so glumly references.

I am no climate scientist, but one thing I do know is that kids born the last time the climate showed any sign of a warming trend are now in high school, the predicted melted polar ice caps are instead thriving, and scientists around the world are now openly and actively worrying about global cooling.

In the face of these facts, perhaps politicians like President Obama should hold off on continuing on their economy destroying reliable energy jihad.

Unless of course your objective has nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with fundamentally changing the United States’ economic status in the world, in which case you can just plow ahead clinging to discredited theories and hoping the public doesn’t figure it out in time.

    Discredited theories? Like socialism and statist utopias? The left only has discredited theories. It’s all they know. To admit it would make their head’s explode.

    I’ve got to laugh at all of those global warming idiots. There is, was,and never will be global warming. If all of you idiots were awake and taking notes, every time the CO2 levels in the atmosphere rise too high mother nature kicks in and it rains. By this happening it scrubs the high levels of CO2 out of the atmosphere in the form of rain, which in turn goes back into the ground, which is absorbed in the roots of vegetation,and returned to the atmosphere as oxygen. The reason for the temperature change, is because after the asteroid hit off the coast of mexico, which wiped out the dinosaurs, has been wobbling back to it;’s true north/south axis. Every year surveyors have to resurvey the south pole which moves about 2 to 3 inches every year. All of you global warming idiots need to take a class in reality!

  • Daniel Spickard

    What global warming idiots are afraid of is once planet earth comes back up to it’s true north/south axis, is that all uninhabitable land will revert back to it’s once plush fertile ways. Before the asteroid hit earth, there were no deserts, and no ice packs. Every piece of dry ground was fertile, and habitable. Picture a world with no famine, and plenty of fresh running water. Then picture it being the same temperature every where on planet earth. This is what is going to happen when the earth comes back to it’s true axis. This is no story, this is pure reality!

    I don’t think you understand….. Please, Let me explain.
    First of all you need to understand the theory of “opposites”. It’s colder because it’s warmer. The ice is covering the pole in greater amounts due to a reduced temperature area in the North, quite simply because it’s colder because it’s warmer.
    The ocean levels have not flooded coastal cities such as New York as Al Gore had said would happen by 2012, quite simply because they are in low ocean level spots. Just look at Venice, it’s now quite flooded due to warming since it is not located in a low ocean level spot. Mr. Gore knew about these low spots when he bought his multi million dollar oceanfront estate! He selected a low ocean level spot to buy. Check it out for yourself, fill a bowl with water and look at all the low spots!!!
    I hope all of the misinformed now understand how “Global Warming” and the rise in ocean levels works.

    Thank you for explaining this. Now I totally understand why my food gets hotter when it is really cooler. The more heat I apply, the more ice that appears on them.

    I suspect that you are being totally totally SARCASTIC with your post, so I’m going to say this to anyone else who believes your post:

    Get a FRIKKEN grip, dude – man made global warming has been a hoax from the beginning, I’m a scientist and I could send you a twenty page report on how they got the model totally backward — it is not increased CO2 that leads to increased global temperatures, the relationship is inverse, that is, it is the increase in global temperatures that leads to increased CO2 — go back and look at Gores own documentary and look at the scale to see where the temp lines and CO2 lines are and you will see the CO2 line matches the temp line almost precisely except that it is years and years BEHIND the temp line.

    It’s right there for you to see.

  • dnav

    While science changes annually and comes up with theories that debunk their previous theories, the literature of eternity remains the same. God never changes.

  • the_uglydog

    You’re absolutely right! A microwave really cools your food off. The flat earthers believe it warms it up….. go figure!
    Believe it or not;
    I’ve explained “Global Warming” that way to a number of people who, actually …… ……. believed what I said… ????? Some completely agreed! ????
    It also helps when the data is changed to skew the numbers.

  • ramon

    That is why to play it safe and to cover for their ignorance, those same libs have gone from “global warming” to “climate change”.

  • fatman45

    it is not increased CO2 that leads to increased global temperatures, the relationship is inverse, that is, it is the increase in global temperatures that leads to increased CO2

    That is exactly what Russian scientists discovered from ice cores spanning 400,000 years of paleoclimatic history drilled at Lake Vostok in Antarctica.

  • dnav

    Great point — and indeed the reason they would find that is because the relationship is a scientific fact, not a theory.

    The big lie of global, warming is a scam to raise taxes and cost businesses more money those involved know it is a scam here is a video from a college Professor making hundreds of thousands of dollars on government grants to promote the scam:https://romanticpoet.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/joel-rogers-the-new-green-deal-sandors-sells-his-shares-of-ccx-to-ice/
    scroll through each of them and you will learn something your college professors lied to you about along with most of their teachings.
