Since the 70's Drought Areas Have Doubled. Global Warming?


Recommended Posts

What's funny is that the researchers from Lawrence Livermore

and UCLA, while trying to refine the accuracy of the models for

the future, do not, as far as I can tell, reject the theory of global

warming. :)

of course they're not gonna reject it! they doan want obama on their cases. :lol:

Climate change may boost your chance of getting sick from seafood

A new federal study indicates we're likely to see more cases of ciguatera overall in coming decades, as global warming allows the algae that carries the ciguatera toxin to spread north from its Caribbean stronghold.

 

While rarely fatal, ciguatera poisoning is unpleasant and incurable. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, itching, muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue and a weird phenomenon in which cold things feel hot and hot things feel cold. It can last days, weeks, months or years.

 

*******************************************************

If you weren't scared of suffocating, starving, having less kids, becoming dumber, or a number of other scary things, here we have a study that says you will get ciguatera poisoning too due to global warming. And they wonder why people are not believing this. All over two degrees of warming in a hundred years? lol

 

I doan like seafood except for tunafish on white or rye. :)

Department of Defense, Adaptation Roadmap, 2014: "The impacts of climate change may cause instability in other countries by impairing access to food and water, damaging infrastructure, spreading disease, uprooting and displacing large numbers of people, compelling mass migration, interrupting commercial activity, or restricting electricity availability. These developments could undermine already-fragile governments that are unable to respond effectively or challenge currently‐stable governments, as well as increasing competition and tension between countries vying for limited resources. These gaps in governance can create an avenue for extremist ideologies and condition that foster terrorism."

Climate-change naysayers better at war of words, study finds

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Climate-change opponents are better at spreading their point of view than those who see climate change as real and troublesome, according to a study underlining the challenge of rallying public support as world leaders meet in Paris to discuss the environmental threat.

 

The naysayers did well at changing the minds of both liberal and conservative Americans in a study of about 1,600 U.S. adults conducted by Michigan State University researchers.

 

****************************************************************

If you think global warming was real would they have all signed a voluntary agreement on how to cope with it? I don't think so, lol. It is easy to win a debate when the facts are on your side. People have been bombarded with scare studies and lies for too long about global warming, the emperor has no clothes. When it gets to the point of them doing studies on why people believe the truth you know they are getting desperate.

Growing Body Of Experts And Academics Say Global Warming Policies Will Harm The Poor

A slew of impending and costly global warming policies will ultimately harm the people they most aim to help, according to a growing number of environmentalists and academics.

 

“Green taxes are mostly regressive — percentage-wise they affect and hurt the poor the most. Just look at Germany’s energy policy, the so-called Energiewende. It is failing the poor, while being a poor way to help the climate.” said Bjørn Lomborg.

 

*********************************************************

Sadly this is true, this scam will hurt the poor the worst because they will pay for this in higher energy costs. They should let the market decide what is best, not the politicians.

Ontario’s green energy botch-up a lesson for those fighting climate change

The McGuinty Liberals devised a scheme that would promote the growth of green energy sources such as windmills. It seemed — in theory — a coherent industrial and ecological strategy. In practice, it became a horror show marked by hubris, arbitrary decisions, political calculus, a bizarre reluctance to follow the dictates of law and sometimes just plain bad luck.

 

Lysyk calculates that all of this cost Ontario electricity users $37 billion between 2006 and 2014.

It’s expected to cost an additional $133 billion over the next 17 years.

 

************************************************************

This is too much of a mess to explain in one post, but the billions wasted explains it all. Glad I don't pay an Ontario electric bill, lol.

In Ontario, electricity bills are reason to weep

If you live in Ontario, deciphering your electricity bill is like trying to crack the encryption on a BlackBerry. It might tax even the professional snoopers at the U.S. National Security Agency.

It’s not as simple as multiplying the amount of power you use each month by the market price per kilowatt-hour.

 

Beyond your “electricity” charge, there’s a “delivery” charge, a “regulatory” charge, a “debt retirement” charge and an Orwellian-sounding “clean energy benefit.”

 

*******************************************************************

In case anyone doubted it, every month they are reminded by seeing the bill.

There problem is that they are still using a BlackBerry.

Just because some dumb right-winger is too stupid to figure out an Ontario electric bill doesn't mean anyone in Ontario is weeping, no matter what that headline suggests..

Ontario sees hydro rates jump — again

In addition to the rate hike, the hours for mid-peak and on-peak prices also change to winter "time-of-use" hours. From Nov. 1 to April 30, weekdays between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. are considered mid-peak hours. Weekdays between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. are on-peak hours, which saw the highest rate increase.

 

Consumers won't get any happier in the new year, either. Their bills will go up again on Jan. 1, when the 10 per cent discount known as the Clean Energy Benefit will end. Further rate hikes are also expected in the coming years. The provincial government forecasts that hydro bills will hit more than $190 per month in a little more than six years.

 

"And anger, just people increasingly angry."

 

*************************************************************

It doesn't sound like they are very happy in Ontario with their power bills, anyone who trusts the government to solve a problem that doesn't exist will have this happen to them.

Sorry I was just trying to interject some humor into this thread because logic and reason just don't work on some folks.

No need to be sorry, james. I wasn't really responding to you - rather to the quoted headline in your post.

Media Effusively Praises Global Warming Deal That Does Nothing

The other inconvenient truth that the media dare not mention is that this pact is voluntary. We are to trust the good will of China, India and Russia, which are vastly expanding their fossil fuel dependence, while we in America shut down our trillion-dollar energy industry.

 

James Hansen, one of the leading climate-change activists, said of the Paris agreement: "It's a fraud, really, a fake." Then he added: "It's just worthless words. There is no action, just promises. As long as fossil fuels appear to be the cheapest fuels out there, they will be continue to be burned."

 

**********************************************************

Wind energy kills endangered species, Obama gave the wind companies immunity from the Endangered Species act so they can get away with this. The wind turbines kill thousands of hawks and eagles every year, and nobody reports on it. All of them have to die for global warming that isn't happening.

Experts warn saltwater crocodiles could migrate to cooler climates because of global warming.

Saltwater crocodiles may be forced to migrate from the north of Australia to the southern states because of global warming.

 

A University of Queensland study has found the man eaters may be ill-equipped to adjust to rising water temperatures, prompting them to migrate to cooler environments.

 
*****************************************************************
Maybe they should study if fleas and bed bugs will migrate due to global warming as well. I hope the people in Australia aren't falling for this scam.

Denver receives record-setting snowfall

By Breaking News Staff

 

While we are warmer than normal in the Miami Valley, Denver received nearly a foot of snow—nearly 8 inches Tuesday—breaking the record for any previous snowfall on that day since 1897!

 

The mile high city was blanketed with snow, and according to the Denver Post, the record-setting storm forced flights to be canceled.

 

***************************************************

Global warming and setting snow records going back to 1897, not very convincing.

Well, why bother with your daily nonsense about what people

think in polls, or it's very cold outside, as if that has anything

to do with science. I'll just cut to the chase--you're a frigging idiot.

 

This needed to be bumped back up.

World will start COOLING DOWN in 2017, claims one of planet's top climate change experts

 

Dr David Evans, a former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, says global warming predictions have been vastly exaggerated in error. “Carbon dioxide causes only minor warming. The climate is largely driven by factors outside our control.

 

"As such, the wind farms and solar panels are not just bad at reducing carbon dioxide — even if they did succeed in reducing carbon dioxide they’d be useless at cooling the planet. It is only four billion dollars a day worldwide, wasted."

 

He said the other problem was the predictions had no reflection on changes that have actually been recorded and never saw the current 18-year temperature stagnation we are now in. Between 2017 and 2021 he estimates a cooling of about 0.3C before the mini ice age in the 2030s.

 

*********************************************************

Another expert says it is all a scam, it's not like we haven't seen it coming. If they can't model the weather for tomorrow who ever would believe they could model the climate for 80 years? And I hope this guy is retired as he won't be getting any global warming "research" money now, lol.

The thread is being ruined by all these stupid weather reports.

 

Typical right-wing chicanery. It never stops.

 

But it is great to hear that global warming will be over in about a year. But that better turn out to be true or I'm gonna be right ------ off

Why are you so interested in trying to prove global warming is a scam?  Curious.
