  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Associated “Obama” Press – Warns of Global Warming

Posted by rightwinger on December 17, 2008

Its ridiculous the Associate Press continues to propagate the myth of global warming while it snowed in New Orleans and Houston recently.  Don’t worry Obama keeps propagating the myth also.  Why?  Well of course because they want to levy high cap and trade taxes on us.   They even want to make CO2 a pollutant.  Essentially you will be taxed for breathing.  I wonder how Obama is going to spin all of these unnecessary taxes.  Well he definitely won’t be able to blame Bush.  He’ll have to take responsibility for decreasing every American’s standard of living for himself.

The temperature at Denver International Airport dropped to 18 below zero on Sunday, breaking the previous record of 14 below set in 1901. White Sulphur Springs, Mont., reported 29 below to the National Weather Service, breaking the record of 17 below set in 1922. Meanwhile, ice storms ravage the Northeast and the upper Midwest.

This is not a local phenomenon. Hong Kong had the second-longest cold spell since 1885. Cold in northern Vietnam destroyed 40% of the rice crop and killed 33,000 head of livestock. The British Parliament debated climate change as London experienced the first October snow since 1934.

Presumably this has all been reported by the Associated Press. But according to a weekend AP report, this is all an illusion and “2008 is on a pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line.” Rather than being “evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.” Oh.

The report, which includes no comments from any skeptic, says global warming “is a ticking time-bomb that President-elect Obama can’t avoid.” It warns “warming is accelerating. Time is running out, and Obama knows it.” Especially if he relies on AP wire reports.

Problem is, nature didn’t get the memo. Geophysicist David Deming found that for the first time since the 18th century, in the days before SUVs, Alaskan glaciers grew this year instead of retreating. Fairbanks had its fourth coldest October in 104 years of records.

U.S. Geological Survey glaciologist Bruce Molnia reported: “On the Juneau Icefield, there was still 20 feet of new snow on the surface of the Taku Glacier in late July.” It was the worst summer he’d seen in two decades.

As the Anchorage Daily News reports, “Never before in the history of a research project dating back to 1946 had the Juneau Ice Field witnessed the kind if snow buildup that came this year. It was similar on a lot of other glaciers too.”

The consequence of melting glaciers and sea ice is supposed to be rising sea levels. The poster children for this phenomenon are low-lying coral islands such as the Maldives and Tuvalu. Again, the facts are ignored in the quest for headlines.

The satellite record shows the sea level has actually fallen four inches around Tuvalu since 1993, when the $100 million international TOPEX/POSEIDON satellite project record began.

    What a Moron! Global warming really means climate change, which could, in fact, result in freezing temperatures in certain areas due to changes in ocean currents and wind patterns.

  2. Another interesting source of information on the warming farce is the US Senate Environment and Public Works Minority Site. Specifically:
