The recent news story about John Coleman's (co-founder of the Weather Channel) harsh words toward the federal government's climate change report, or
what he calls a "600 page litany of doom", is but yet another controversial thread on global warming. Lately, we seem to be seeing quite a few
threads from our members like this just about every week. So it seems appropriate to get the opinion of the "Most Informed 1%" -- the members and
visitors of AboveTopSecret.com
I am not worried at all ... "The Obama Administration’s just-released National Climate Assessment report leaves the impression that if we don’t
quickly launch into action to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases (primarily by shifting away from using fossil fuels), we will be inundated by
an endless flow of misfortune unleashed by the ensuing climate change. The flood has already begun. Nothing could be further from the truth."
www.washingtontimes.com... ETA ..at the bottom of the article there is a poll
. I did not take it because it's ambiguous in that it wants you to answer something you are set up to answer ...
Also ... John Holdren Says Extreme Winter Is Proof Of Global Warming
Its getting colder because it's warmer .mmm when it gets warmer will it be because it's colder ? %@$# I am confused .. 9-k5J4RxQdE
"The Competitive Enterprise Institute has sued the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to produce the work-related emails of its
director, John Holdren, that were sent from a private email account and thus hidden from the Freedom of Information Act and archiving laws.
The lawsuit alleges that Holdren used an email account from his former employer Woods Hole Research Center, an environmental advocacy group."
Is this the same John Hodren who predicted another looming ice age in 1971? Yep.
John Holdren in 1971: “New ice age” likely
“This number seems small until it is realized that a decrease of only 4°C would probably be sufficient to start another ice age. Moreover, other
effects besides simple screening by air pollution threaten to move us in the same direction. In particular, a mere one percent increase in low cloud
cover would decrease the surface temperature by .8°C. We may be in the process of providing just such a cloud increase, and more, by adding man-made
condensation nuclei to the atmosphere in the form of jet exhausts and other suitable pollutants. A final push in the cooling direction comes from
man-made changes in the direct reflectivity of the earth’s surface (albedo) through urbanization, deforestation, and the enlargement of deserts.
The effects of a new ice age on agriculture and the supportability of large human populations scarcely need elaboration here. Even more dramatic
results are possible, however; for instance, a sudden outward slumping in the Antarctic ice cap, induced by added weight, could generate a tidal wave
of proportions unprecedented in recorded history.” www.zombietime.com...
Holdren Is Wrong – Cold Winters Are Not Getting More Common Posted on April 18, 2014 by Paul Homewood wattsupwiththat.com...
edit on 8-5-2014 by the2ofusr1 because: (no reason given)
very concerned, think that the whole White house angle is just a way to put the recovery onto local and regional authorities and to take the financial
burdens off of the Government so as to free up money for other less important priorities such as their vacations and fat cat pockets.
I would like to see financial aid for building a shelter for the ongoing and dangerous weather. This can be set as up pre planning safety measures
for individuals and communities.
There are too many money interests pushing the global warming, excuse me, climate change agenda for me to take it seriously. - See more at:
Bing! Bing! Bing!
It amounts to: "Boo! Gimme money!"
The Earth has had drastic climate change well before man came into the picture...and there simply isn't enough data (accurate measurements using the
same conventions, over centuries) to extrapolate from to arrive to a valid conclusion.
Global warming? This is the first I've heard of this. What do you need me to do? Should I build a shelter deep underground and stock up on canned
goods or should we just throw tax money at it and hope it goes away?
