Top Ten Reasons Climate Change is a Hoax

TopTenAlGore2

By Elmer Beauregard

The Senate voted this week on whether Climate Change is real or a hoax, I think it’s a hoax and here’s why.

I’m sure you’ve heard in the news that 2014 was supposed to be the hottest year ever. If it actually was “hottest year ever” you’d think all the terrible calamities that are supposed to happen would be happening now but instead the opposite is happening.

1. Record Ice

In 2014 there was record sea ice in Antarctica  in fact a global warming expedition got stuck in it. Arctic sea ice has also made a nice comeback in 2014. The Great lakes had record ice Lake Superior only had 3 ice free months in 2014. You’d think that in the hottest year ever that ice would be melting like Al Gore said.

2. Record Snow

2014 saw record snowfall in many areas, remember when they said that global warming would cause snow to disappear and children won’t know what snow is.

3. Record Cold

In 2014 we saw all kinds of cold records remember the Polar Vortex? You’d think that we’d be breaking all kinds of heat records in “the hottest year ever”

4. Oceans Are Rising Much Less Than Predicted

Al Gore predicted that oceans would rise 20 feet by 2100, it looks like were on track for about a foot. 80% of the tide gauges show less rise than the official “global average”. Many tide gauges show no rise in sea level, and almost none show any acceleration over the past 20 years.

5. Polar Bears Are Thriving

You’d think that Polar Bears would really be in trouble in 2014 “the hottest year ever” but they are thriving.

6. Moose Are Making A Comeback

A few years ago the moose population in Minnesota dropped rapidly and they immediately blamed global warming, then they did a study and found out it was actually wolves that were killing the moose. Wolves have been taken off the endangered species list and are now endangering other species so they opened a wolf hunting season in Minnesota and the moose are coming back. It turns out it had nothing to do with global warming in fact the years when the moose population declined were some very cold ones.

7. 99% of Scientists don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming

You’ve probably heard over and over that 99% of scientist believe in global warming well the opposite is true. That talking point came from a study where only 75 scientists said they believe in global warming on the other hand over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition saying they don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming.

8. Nature produces much more CO2 than man

In 2014 NASA finally launched a satellite that measures CO2 levels around the globe. They assumed that most of the CO2 would be coming from the industrialized northern hemisphere but much to their surprise it was coming from the rainforests in South America, Africa and China.

9. It Isn’t Actually the Warmest Year.

If you look at the satellite data 2014 was not the warmest year ever in fact there has been no global warming for over 18 years. The Reason they can say it’s the warmest year is because they are using the ground weather station data which is heavily influenced by the Urban Heat Island effect, many of which are near pavement. Even still they had to cherry pick that data to get at the warmest year ever and it is only the warmest by only two-100ths of a degree within a dataset that has a variability of a half of a degree. The fact they they had to ignore accurate data and fudge sketchy data to push their agenda proves (IMHO) that climate change is a hoax.

10. The Hypocrisy of the Main Players

One of the main reasons you can tell that global warming is a hoax is that the main purveyors of global warming live lifestyles opposite of what they preach, they all own multiple large homes and yachts and they fly around the world in private jets pushing their propaganda. Not to mention some people such as Al Gore actually profit from Carbon Taxes and other green energy laws. If they actually believed what they preached they would be leading quite different lives.

    Global warming is not a separate entity, nor uis Climate change. Furthermore these are not well defined subjects, they are vague. However, they are just results of what is happening to our planet – Global Pollution. Wakeup assholes!

  • Dudley Dooright

    If we were worried about tornadoes we’d have a tornado shelter (many Midwesterners do). If we were worried about hurricanes we’d have hurricane shutters and more. Many do. If we were worried about fire we’d have alarms and sprinklers (many do). But nobody does anything (personally) to reduced their energy usage(in fact they increase it every day) So nobody can say they are really worried about it. Actions speak much louder than words (or politics)

    • Stan Kulp

      they are listed as threatened, not endangered. But don’t research anything, your feelings are enough

  • Zane murasko

    y’all not smart if you baleve this artical

  • Zane murasko

    satellites are out side the ozone layer which means they have a different temp than the ground temp which is the correct temp and every where around the world the temp has risen even out side the Urban Heat Island effect.

  • Stan Kulp

    lame. The biggest reason the human-induced warming religion is a lie is that they can only rely on carbon dioxide and it doesn’t do what they say it does. Infrared radiation passes through carbon dioxide without any problems except for the frequencies of 2.7, 4.3, and 15.0 micrometers. These are the few frequencies that will cause a molecule of carbon dioxide to vibrate and therefore be absorbed. And IF all the carbon dioxide were taken out of the atmosphere, none of these frequencies would escape into space anyway because of other gases blocking, absorbing, refracting, reflecting them. So it is NOT the case that more carbon dioxide means more heat. And this can be verified by the Ice Core Data that clearly shows that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide always FOLLOW an increase in temperature.

  • Dean Roach

    Here’s the real question. No one including and especially Al Gore can say with absolute certainty that these weather patterns have never happened before.
    But a Democrat like al bore needs a crisis so he can have a platform in order to save the world.
    If mr bore really believed the bull he’s spreading why is he still riding around in a private jet telling everyone else about their carbon footprint.
    Global Warming is the biggest bunch of garbage leveled against whilte America in quite some time.

    This Inter Glacial Warm Period PEAKED in temperatures about 7000 years ago.
    Temps have been FALLING since then, as we descend into the next ICE AGE.
    Much of the last 1000 years are CALLED the LITTLE ICE AGE…because of the FALLING Temps.
    Those Falling Temps ended around 1750ish…even thought Milankovitch Cycles causing Ice Ages have continue to this day.

    1.
    We ARE discussing GLOBAL Climate Changes
    over the long term
    …many decades to centuries and THIS article/author responds with local U.S. BRIEF REGIONAL occurrences,
    .
    Do you wish to discuss local weather patterns ?
    2.
    3.
    RECORD cold, snow, ice….in small areas of the U.S.A….
    What the Author & article do not tell you that in OTHER LARGE PARTS of the WORLD there were
    RECORD HEAT WAVES & HIGH TEMPERATURES
    U.K. set a record 2 degrees F. above norm.
    France set a record 2.2 degrees F. above norm.
    Australia set record HEAT WAVE for 2013 & 2014.
    4.
    The AUTHOR contends that there has been less sea level rise than predicted.
    Predicted by whom? HE Then proceeds to talk about 1 measure, Gauges….instead of the FAR more accurate sea level measures, by multiple satellites.
    FACT:
    1st half of the 20 century seas rose an average about 1.0MM to 1.7 MM / YR.
    by 2000 that rise in sea levels had doubled to 3.2 MM/YR.
    by 2017 that rise in sea levels surpassed records to 3.7MM/YR.

    AT a GATHERING of PEOPLE opposed to government regulations,
    (most were NOT scientists of ANY SORT ! )
    a petition was passed around and many copies were mailed/e-mailed for signatures in opposition to Legitimate Science Concerns with Warming & GLOBAL Climate Changes.
    Those political organizations collecting signatures made NO ATTEMPT to determine if any of the signers were legit. scientists
    ….hence the results of this petition turned out to be exactly what the petitioners wanted
    …..99% opposed to action against climate change.
    COMPARE that to 7 INTERNATIONAL STUDIES, most peer reviewed, published in legit scientific Journals have consistently show 90& to 99% of all Verified Scientists
    had STUDIED Worries About ongoing Warming & Global Climate Changes threats to our Economies and our Civilization.

    For Millennia earth’s energy intake and output has been in a delicate balance….
    According to the Milankovitch Cycles….This Era, the Holocene Inter Glacial Warm Period peaked in temperatures…from then, temps. were descending as we entered the NEXT ICE AGE….7000-9000 years of falling temps.

    *** Even though Milankovitch Cycles are still pulling toward an ICE AGE
    ………temps. stopped falling around 1750. THE LITTLE ICE AGE which occurred over much of the last 1000 years was terminated….

    Used by Marxist as an argument that cannot ve argued against, future events. Pretty ingenious from the Marxist Darwinist to gain power and control. Facts always destroyed their arguments before. Which Marxists dont even believe. Armand Hammer, yes friend to Al Gore, and the thief murderer Lenin thought the climate change dandy up. You are the fool that the marxists are targeting if you believe in Climate change.

      This Holocene Inter Glacial Warm Period PEAKED in Temperatures about 8000 years ago.
      Since then, temps have been slowly falling as we were pulled toward the next ICE AGE.
      …..though Earth is still Being Pulled in orbit away from the Sun.
      ……We should still be cooling !

      but in the mid 1700’s Earth’s MOST powerful natural Cycle, the Ice Age
      was terminated…abruptly…temps started to rise .

      **** These Research studies find the planet****
      continues to accumulate heat. Year after year.

      HERE is a line of empirical evidence:
      .
      that human/industry CO2 emissions are causing global warming.
      **
      Climate Myth / The Skeptic-Denier position.

      There’s no empirical evidence
      “There is no actual evidence that carbon dioxide emissions
      are causing global warming. Note that computer models are just
      concatenations of calculations you could do on a hand-held calculator,
      so they are theoretical and cannot be part of any evidence.”
      (noted DENIER David Evans)
      ***

      The line of empirical evidence that humans
      are causing global warming is as follows:
      .
      We’re raising CO2 levels
      .
      Human carbon dioxide emissions are calculated
      from international energy statistics, tabulating coal, brown coal,
      peat, and crude oil production by nation and year, going back to 1751.
      .
      CO2 emissions have increased dramatically over the last century,
      climbing to the rate of 29 billion tonnes of CO2 per year in 2006 (EIA).
      .
      Atmospheric CO2 levels are measured at hundreds of
      monitoring stations across the globe.
      .
      Independent measurements are also conducted by airplanes and satellites.
      For periods before 1958, CO2 levels are determined from air bubbles trapped in polar ice cores.
      In pre-industrial times over the last 10,000 years,
      CO2 was relatively stable at around 180-to-280 parts per million.
      .
      Over the last 250 years, atmospheric CO2 levels have increased
      by about 100 parts per million.
      .
      Humans are emitting more than twice as much CO2 as what ends up staying there.
      Nature is reducing our impact on climate by absorbing
      more than half of our CO2 emissions.
      .
      The amount of human CO2 left in the air, called the “airborne fraction”,
      has hovered around 43% since 1958.
      CO2 traps heat
      .
      According to radiative physics and decades of laboratory measurements,
      increased CO2 in the atmosphere is expected/predicted to absorb
      more infrared radiation as it escapes back out to space.

      Human Agriculture & Industry is producing 120-135 TIMES MORE CO2
      than ALL of EARTH’s Volcanoes Combined….every year !

      NASA launched the IRIS satellite measuring infrared spectra.

      In 1996,
      the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite
      which recorded similar observations.

      .
      Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes
      in escaping radiation levels over the 26 year period

      Google (Harries 2001 research abstract)
      .
      What they found was a drop in Escaping Infra Red radiation
      at the PRECISE wavelength bands that greenhouse gases
      such as CO2 with H2O, CFC’s, Ozone,
      Nitrous Oxides, and methane (CH4) absorb energy.

      The change in DECREASE IN ESCAPING I.R. radiation was consistent
      with theoretical Expectations / Predictions.
      .
      This research & paper found

      “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase
      in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Warming on Earth.
      .
      This result has been confirmed by subsequent research & papers
      using data from later satellites

      Google (Harries 2001 Research Abstract)

      When greenhouse gases absorb infrared radiation,
      the energy heats the atmosphere which in turn
      re-radiates infrared radiation in all directions.
      .
      Some makes its way back to the earth’s surface.
      Hence
      we Expect/Predict to find more infrared radiation heading downwards.
      .
      Surface measurements from 1973 to 2008 find an increasing trend
      of infrared radiation returning to earth

      Google (Wang 2009 Research Abstract)
      .
      A regional study over the central Alps found that
      downward infrared radiation is increasing due to the
      enhanced greenhouse effect
      .
      Google (Philipona 2004 research abstract).
      .
      Taking this a step further, an analysis of high resolution spectral data
      allowed scientists to quantitatively attribute the increase in
      downward radiation to each of several greenhouse gases
      .
      Google (Evans 2006 Research abstract)
      .
      The results lead the authors to conclude that
      *
      *** “this experimental data should effectively end the argument by skeptics
      that no experimental evidence exists for the connection between
      greenhouse gas increases in the atmosphere and Climate Changes caused
      by global warming.”

      “The notion that climate scientists either invented or exaggerated global warming is one that’s been rumbling around for quite some time.

      It’s often used as an argument to oppose the theory of global warming
      but it’s not something that has ever been substantiated
      – despite numerous requests for links to corroborating evidence.
      It’s actually quite a bizarre claim given that global warming will be celebrating it’s 200th birthday in a few days.

      The first scientific connection to global warming dates from 1811
      when the physicist and astronomer Simeon Denis Poisson speculated
      that atmospheric pollution led to increased temperatures.

      In 1824 the French scientist Jean-Baptiste Fourier (a colleague of Poisson’s)
      put forward the notion that Earth’s atmosphere was retaining heat.
      His published his findings in a work entitled “General Remarks on the Temperature of the Terrestrial Globe and the Planetary Spaces”
      http://burgess1837.geologist-1011.mobi/

      In 1896 the Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius was the first person to produce documented empirical evidence as to the existence of global warming, this was published in his paper “On the Influence of Carbonic Acid in the Air upon the Temperature of the Ground”
      (carbonic acid being the chemical name of the time for carbon dioxide).
      http://www.rsc.org/images/Arrhenius1896_

      It’s sometimes claimed that scientists falsify the theory of global warming in order to receive funding. The problem with this argument is that any funding that is provided will be strictly controlled and in most cases will be monitored and audited by the funding body and / or their appointed auditors.

      Any deliberate misappropriation of funding would be a criminal offence
      for which the offender could be jailed.

      This has never happened.
      The Virginia State Attorney – Ken Cuccinelli – embarked on something of a witch-hunt
      against the climate scientist Michael Mann and invoked the
      ** Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act
      claiming that Mann had misappropriated public funds. The Judge threw the case out.
      http://www.ucsusa.org/news/press_release
      I’m actually a climate scientist myself and I can assure you that it’s nothing to do with the money (I work in the private sector so there’s almost no public funding available).

      Anyone embarking on a climate science study course is well aware that
      they’re never going to become rich. If they were more concerned about money they would use their scientific background and work in petrochemicals or pharmaceuticals.

      It’s also assumed that climate scientists do nothing other than study climate change. In reality, this makes up a small proportion of the workload and many scientists will go through their whole career without ever researching climate change.

      The argument falls flat on it’s face yet again when you consider that companies
      with the most to lose from climate change being a reality
      – the oil and power companies – have their own in-house climate scientists
      and they are reporting exactly the same as those working in the public sector.
      Furthermore, climate change is a multi-disciplinary subject and involves scientists
      from a wide spectrum including botanists, marine biologists, oceanographers,
      cosmologists, physicists, atmospheric chemists etc.
      *It stretches credibility beyond all forms of reason to believe that such a
      huge number of people could be involved in a scam and not one person has ever spoken out.
      It’s also worth bearing in mind that the first warnings made to the US government
      about impending climate change came from research conducted by
      the US Army at the Camp Century base in Greenland.
      Are we also to believe that the military are also involved in some sort of global conspiracy?
      PS – The psychological aspect of climate change can be found within the realms
      of the psychology of denial and the diffusion of responsibility.
      These conditions manifest themselves as
      a) a filter mechanism that inhibits
      the acceptance of conflicting ideas and opinions in order to maintain a delusion and
      b) the reluctance to become involved on the basis that someone else will deal with the problem.

    One of most irrefutable Philosophical Tenets that exists: One can never know all of the outcomes of an option not taken. Therefore, there is no way of knowing if our planet would be in better, worse, or the same condition had Man never walked on it. This alone disproves the claims of the fools with “Ph D” after their names who insist that Man is warming and thus destroying the planet.

      What they found was a drop in Escaping Infra Red radiation
      at the PRECISE wavelength bands that greenhouse gases
      such as CO2 with H2O, CFC's, Ozone,
      Nitrous Oxides, and methane (CH4) absorb energy.

      This Entire planet is accumulating heat
      .
      When there is more energy coming in than escaping back out to space,
      our climate accumulates heat.
      .
      The planet's total heat buildup can be derived by
      adding up the heat content from the ocean, atmosphere,
      land and ice.
      .
      Google (Murphy 2009 Research abstract)
      .
      Ocean heat content was determined down to 3000 metres deep.
      Atmospheric heat content was calculated from the surface temperature record
      and heat capacity of the troposphere.
      Land and ice heat content (eg – the energy required to melt ice)
      were also included.
      .
      Figure 4:
      Total Earth Heat Content from 1950
      .
      Google (Murphy 2009 Research Abstract)
      .
      Ocean data taken from Domingues et al 2008.
      .
      From 1970 to 2003, the planet has been accumulating heat at a
      rate of 190,260 gigawatts
      with the vast majority of the energy going into the oceans.
      Considering a typical nuclear power plant has an output of 1 gigawatt,
      imagine 190,000 nuclear power plants
      pouring their energy output directly into our oceans.
      What about after 2003?
      .
      A map of of ocean heat from 2003 to 2008 was constructed
      from ocean heat measurements down to 2000 metres deep
      .
      Google (von Schuckmann 2009).

      Globally, the oceans have continued to accumulate heat
      to the end of 2008 at a rate of 0.77 ± 0.11 Wm?2,
      consistent with other determinations of
      the planet's energy imbalance (Hansen 2005, Trenberth 2009).
      The planet continues to accumulate heat.
      .
      Figure 5: Time series of global mean heat storage (0–2000 m), measured in 108 Jm-2.
      .
      So we see a direct line of evidence that we're causing global warming.
      Human CO2 emissions far outstrip the rise in CO2 levels.
      The enhanced greenhouse effect is confirmed
      by satellite and surface measurements.
      The planet's energy imbalance is confirmed by summations of the
      planet's total heat content and ocean heat measurements.

    Global warming is a scam! All you have to do is read about the history of our planet. Our planet went through these cycles all the time. One example is: The Medieval Warm Period (MWP), Medieval Climate Optimum, or Medieval Climatic Anomaly was a time of warm climate in the North Atlantic region that may also have been related to other climate events around the world during that time, including China and other areas, lasting from about 950 to 1250.

    • R. Kooi

      No, what you need to do is read and understand….that this transition is NEW and UNIQUE !

      Yes, we have had man CLIMATE CHANGES….THANKS to science YOU know that !…..Science is NOW telling you that this is different.

      Many Ice Ages (glaciations)
      Many Inter Glacial Warm Periods.
      THIS inter glacial warm period is called the Holocene.
      IT peaked in temperatures about 8,000+- years ago.
      SINCE then, temperatures have slowly been falling, in spits & spurts, toward our next Glaciation.
      .
      Take a look:
      http://www.realclimate.org/images//Marcott.png

      Then, this, EARTH’S MOST POWERFUL NATURAL CYCLE, ended !

      Within decades…. thinkers across the globe began to comment, experiment, study….this apparent dramatic change….as temperatures
      steadily ROSE.

      In 1799 Alexander von Humboldt, while he was in Venezuela, coined the statement “CLIMATE CHANGE” to describe the changes that human civilization was making to planet Earth, that he feared would be permanent changes to Climate.

      Also in 1799, Thomas Jefferson penned a paper postulating the very similar thing about changes humans were making

      By 1811, scientists had firmed the connection between Human Actions and This Warming event.
      By 1827 it was widely lectured about, questioned and debated.
      By 1856 “…the work of Eunice Foote, who three years prior to the start of Tyndall’s laboratory research, conducted similar experiments on absorption of radiant energy by atmospheric gases, such as CO2 and water vapor.
      .
      The presentation of her report at a major scientific convention in 1856
      was accompanied by postulation that even modest increases
      in the concentration of CO2 could result in significant atmospheric warming.”

      http://www.searchanddiscovery.com/..
      .
      CO2 is rising sharply due to human activity.
      .
      Earth Attempts to Cool itself, by emitting Infra Red Radiation to the Cold of Space.
      .
      Satellite & Surface MEASUREMENTS find less energy is escaping to space at CO2/H2O (& other Green House Gasses) absorption wavelengths.
      .
      Ocean and surface temperature measurements continue to climb even though ALL the CAUSES of Ice Ages continue to this day.

      These Research studies find the planet continues to accumulate heat. Year after year.

      This is no surprise….
      Hell, most of the last 1000 years is called the LITTLE ICE AGE….
      ICE AGE because of the Cold Temps.
      LITTLE….because it ENDED in the mid to late 1700’s !
      .
      even though ALL of the CAUSES of ice ages continue to this day….
      the dip in temperatures toward the next glaciation ARE NOW RISING !

  • Jordan Rineholt

    Here is the deal everyone. Global warming is real but not why everyone may think. This is all just a theory based on the information I’ve combined over the years. As the Earth rotates at a much slower rate each year, the sun is able to heat up our planet a lot faster. Now, the planet is also moving further away from the sun as well. This will also keep some type of balance. What people don’t realize is, our giant land masses around the planet are moving constantly and will eventually end up back together as one giant land mass again. This is fact. The movement of land masses will make the seasons change as well over time. Eventually the artic land masses will move into a position that will cause the ice to melt. This will seem as if our planet is doomed but it is not. Human life will still remain for this time period until a second ice age happens. This will become the true test of the human race. Hopefully by this point we have found other habitable planets to live on. By this time, those who still remain will see the spectacle of the Andromeda-Milky Way collision. Also around this time, our Sun will start to become a red giant. If the Earth is not far enough, the Sun will engulf what we know as Earth and all life on the planet will be destroyed with it. This is all speculation and in hopes that the human race does not kill itself off before these amazing events will occur.

Now there is freezing rain for the past few years, we actually have a winter season, and we got snow. This affected everyone activities as lots of people dont bother getting warm clothes because it happens so rarely. I dont know about the rest of the globe but here we are experiancing cooling.
