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.

  • Stephen Kay

    Global warming is an absolute fact; All vaccines are 100% safe and effective; The border is secure; All government agencies ( EPA, FDA, TSA, IRS, etc) always look out for our best interest, Prescription drugs are safe and effective; chemotherapy is the best and only treatment for cancer., etc……All bullshit statements uttered by the government who has not told the truth in decades…..Follow the money.

    • John

      Very true, especially the Chemo thing. My aunt and mom were killed by that stuff.

  • Steve Weston

    Farmers Almanac is a better predictor than anyone . Read it and learn..
    Grasshoppers.

  • Rick R.

    Anytime a person is paid to present “facts” for research money, they are literally bought and paid for. They must keep presenting “evidence” and “conjecture” to keep the grant money, celebrity status, book sales, lectures, and documentaries to survive. If they fail, they fail professionally and, as the boy who cried wolf, no one will listen to them and their previous supporters have moved on to another trendy topic leaving them out in the cold.

  • cv66airdale

    China is your proof that global warming is a control scheme. All of these Politicians that push GW also support Nafta, and other unconstitutional “Free trade agreements, that send our production jobs to 3rd world nations that couldn’t give a shit about GW. Do some research into China’s massive pollution problems, then ask your reps why our government is on both sides of the global warming coin.

  • cv66airdale

    Al Gore, as we all know was Bill Clinton’s VP, when Clinton signed Nafta into law. If you remember, as many times we see Obama on the golf course, Bill, and Killary Clinton spent the same amount of time in China swinging deals with the Reds. The Clinton’s sold MERVE technology to China, witch is a military super computer tech that allows a nation to launch nuclear weapons from anywhere in the world. That’s the real reason for his Impeachment, Monica Lewinsky was just a bread and circus cover up for the real crime.

  • climatechangeisreal

    Climate Change is real. There is irrefutable evidence against it.
    1) Yes there was record ice in Antarctica. However, this goes against the general shrinkage of ice throughout the world.
    http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/antarctic-sea-ice-reaches-new-record-maximum/
    2)Climate Change doesn’t just call for global warming, it calls for more extreme weather events, including snow.
    http://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/
    3) Same argument as 2, but using polar vortex.
    4)Oceans are still rising at historically high levels, threatening to disrupt life for coastal cities and several pacific islands.
    5)Polar Bears are only increasing in a small part of the Arctic
    http://www.polarbearsinternational.org/status-and-threats/polar-bear-status-report
    6)Doesn’t have to do with climate whatsoever, so is irrelevant to the topic of climate change
    7)This isn’t true. 97% of scientists believe in climate change, the percentage doesn’t denote whether or not they think it is human induced. There are other theories of Climate Change
    http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/reprint/seven_theories.pdf
    https://www.wunderground.com/resources/climate/928.asp
    8)Yes, China is a huge pollutant of CO2.
    http://climate.nasa.gov/climate_resources/136/
    9)2014 has been the warmest year ON-RECORD, as in since 1880s. Most people realize this and know that 2014 isn’t the warmest year EVER.

    • Matthew Adams

      Thank you

  • Hate to tell you, but one year of weather doesn’t prove sh@t. If you can give me trends that show a decrease in temperature, then we can talk. But you can’t, can you?

  • John M. Zeigler

    I would like global warming scientists to explain the global warming that occurred beween 800 and 1400 AD and ensuing 200 year cooling period that followed. There were no cars, trucks or factories polluting the air back then. The world’s population wasn’t anywhere near what it is today. Oh BTW, CO2 is good, it’s plant food. Plants take in CO2 and give off our life need, oxygen. More CO2 means more and lusher plantlife which means more oxygen for humans and animals to breath. It’s a symbiotic relationship.

  • Wonderous Derp

    ok. so, i researched global warming lots of times before. and i found that earth climate is actually getting COLDER. photochemical smog is being released by many factories, which is basically ozone. ozone ABSORBS heat.

    • Matthew Adams

      Ozone absorbs radiation, which may help in terms of preventing climate change, but the photochemical smog is the product of the reaction of sunlight and ozone, effectively turning ozone into smog, meaning there is less ozone to help in the prevention of climate change.

  • Erustus Kirwa

    It is unfortunate that a prospective USA President,ONE A mR dONALD tRUMP , is buying this cheap propaganda!

    • Matthew Adams

      It’s unfortunate that Donald Trump exists.

  • Matthew Adams

    You people at globalclimatesscam are stuck up pricks with no care for anything else in this world. You want to just keep living you high rich life with no care to anyone or anything else in the world. You want to live believing that capitalism is the best way of life and that nothing could stop you from living in your fancy palaces. Scientists no for sure that climate change is real – go to NASA, National Ice and Snow Data Center, etc. You think that there is nothing wrong with you killing off all this world, or that you want to live in complete ignorance to he bad parts of this world, and thinking that because you are a rich stuck up prick, nothing could possibly happen to you. Welcome to the real world. There is no realistic evidence that climate change isn’t real, and plenty saying that it is. Wake up from your idiocy.

    • The Irishman

      Wow… this one’s waterlogged w koolaid & sweating out the food-coloring! o.O

  • GraceA

    You’re all idiots. All you Donald Trump supporters ignoring the real science behind Climate Change. You’re all probably happy about the alleged “thriving polar bears” because that way you get to enact your precious second amendment and shoot up some polar bears with an AK-47.

  • sweetqueen777

    I agree wholeheartedly. We have SERIOUS problems invthis country, of an IMMEDIATE and URGENT nature. Climate Change MIGHT BE a problem in about 200 years. We will all kill EACH OTHER before that ever happens. What a CROCK. PLANTS Create Oxygen, which we nreathe. We expell CO2, whivh the plants need. The BEST thing we can do is STOP cutting down the trees. Recycle as much as we can, and fix things instead of throwing everything away

  • Deb Ashlynn

    Let me explain it to you in words you can understand. When global warming occurs the world first gets a ton more water before it dries up. When the Ice caps melt this causes more water, in the form of more snow and rain. This will only last until the caps melt completely and since it is too warm for them to refreeze the water we do have will then dry up. So at first it will seem like we have an abundance of water and then we turn into Venus or other rock like planet in our solar system. WE need to stop using fossil fuels and go green. We have the technology so there’s on reason to continue to damage our home Most scientists now know that this is occurring so for you to site that 99 percent of scientists don’t believe it is occurring is erroneous. And the scientists know more than you on the matter

  • Cheyenne Kid

    Mistrix, you are a toad, a toad is someone who keeps on posting trying to dominate the issue. The earth has gone through several natural shifts of climate change. It is natural and a lot of your data and statements are not backed up except by what you think is so important to say, over and over, and over ……………again!

    • Mistrix

      Toad. Lol. That’s cute, haven’t heard that one before.

      I have made a lot of replies on this article. Made some a year ago or so, and i continue to get a reply in my inbox every few days too so it just goes on and on… lol

    Of course, man-caused climate change alarmism is a hoax. Democrats need a cause; a reason to hike taxes and increase their control over us with onerous regulations. Follow the money to phony “scientists” who feed off taxpayer largess.

  • MIKE BOATRIGHT

    What are your sources elmer b?

  • Tom Baker

    Bingo!

  • Ridwan Shahid

    My professor told me that increasing temperatures would increase water evaporation near the equator. The water vapour will be carried out to the poles and cause more precipitation and more snow. This would cause cooler air to flow away from the poles, cooling the Earth. So perhaps we won’t really be seeing a continuous rise in global temperature.

    However, this might mean that the Earth would cool significantly and less hot air and water will rise from the Equator. That may prevent further cooling. The Earth might have a buffer here. I’m not too sure though. And I don’t know how strong this buffer is. I think scientists should investigate.

  • Mistrix

    So, Elmer Beauregard, do you get any money from political groups or oil companies? Just curious who funds your articles.

  • Whyatt Yescarri

    It would be wonderful if global warming is not happening, since it would have a significant negative impact on many of the earth’s inhabitants in terms of geographical, lifestyle, economic, health and other potential changes. Some would benefit; but rising sea levels, overall weather pattern changes and severe weather events and their associated impacts are projected to significantly increase as part of most of those GW models– and is generally not good for most countries and their people. If it doesn’t happen, then short to long term lifestyles and planning of all types can proceed as usual, which would be a lot better for most of us than the alternative, based on what’s projected to happen. However, the truth is where I wish to get to, regardless of the potential impact.

    I have done a fair amount of reading and watching of videos on both sides of the argument (several hundred hours so far), and during my research related to this subject I have found quite a range of quality in terms of the application of both logic and research approaches, as well as data-driven support for the arguments associated with them. Although most articles, journals, books, sites and videos have some amount of erroneous/invalid assertions, logic and conclusions; based on my research to date, the following is one of the compilations that appears to be among the most well-supported by available data. https://www.skepticalscience.com

    In addition to researching the validity and accuracy of data and assertions, I have tried to always consider the sources and any associated biases, agendas and such. I have found that over time there is an increasing amount of poorly supported thinking and reasoning, often based more on emotional reactions than data and science based reasoning. I have tried to eschew that kind of “thinking” whenever possible. Similarly, although I often see a lot more emotional response and ad hominem attacks than support for a given position, this is too important to me (and I’d assume most others), to simply vent in the form of poorly supported emotionally-driven arguments.

    So, given where I am at with my research, I would like to get the input from people here who have become more/better educated than I am on this subject, to help determine any erroneous thinking and assertions. As noted, the following provides a useful summary that mirrors much of what I have found to date, although it does not provide the full spectrum of rigorous mathematical support and extensive data sets, as do some of the peer reviewed resources I have studied. However, I believe it provides an efficient summary for discussion.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide any well-supported research, data and associated resources that contradict those provided on that site. Similarly, any better/useful compilations would also be appreciated.

    Thanks for any clarifications and input on this subject.

  • Olivier Girardot

    Basically 1,2 and 3 are exactly the same point.

  • Vincent Bryson

    So how does Carbon/Oxygen/Oxygen interfere with the bonding of Oxygen/oxygen/oxygen (I wrote it out for you).
    C-O-O and O-O-O
    So am I to believe that it is possible for CO2 to interfere with the bonding of O3 ?!
    I am being told that that diatomic oxygen contain the properties to prevent Triatomic oxygen from bonding just because this diatomic oxygen contains a Carbon?????!!!!
    Carbon – the 6th most common element on Earth. It’s everywhere in Universe.
    No ONE has an issue with less pollution but come on man! Really?!

  • George

    The controversy is within bad administrations feeding politicians phoney facts and them going along with it . It makes money for state, provincial and federal coffers . Yes we have real facts , that they don’t want to have a look at . The infamous Sierra Nevada Club propagated , a lot of wolf implants from Canada into the United States much to negative impact to wildlife in general . The Sierra Nevada Club , does pay for cattle taken down , quenching some problems from farmers and ranchers . But their not paying monetary compensation for wildlife (moose, etc.) . The Yellowstone wolf project , has now turned into a disaster . They have way too too much money…..so the taxpayer should get all their money , just to justify things , and shut down their formats in implementing any federal policy , because of too much money . We all know of the record cold weather , showing the governments inability to admit to superior reality and truths ……but the most troubling is that the Federal Governments on both sides of the border are not being held accountable for these blatant superior realities and lawsuits that should going , to force them to shut down bad administrations and their form of policy . We know their ethics , principles , and mores , definitely are questionable , and should be taken down asap .

  • raymondschep

    All living things need oxygen to survive. Even plants need oxygen. However, plants that contain chlorophyll have a unique capability.When the sun shines on them they can take up carbon dioxide and convert it to carbohydrates (food) and oxygen. We are all taught this in grade school. At night plants go back to respiration and consume oxygen. If we stopped putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the plants ran out of carbon dioxide to use, then guess what. No more oxygen would be produced and it would be the end of life on earth. This is not speculation it is cold hard biological scinece. This just goes to show how absolutely stupid, idiotic, moronic and insane those are that oppose the release for carbon dioxide to the atmosphere due to some stupid unproven speculation called global warming.

    • raymondschep

      And another thing. If carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere should rise, it would accelerate the growth of plants because they have more carbon dioxide for photosynthesis. Therefore the more cabon dioxide released into the air, the more would be consumed by plants.

  • Sayan

    Given how I figured out that the moon landing was a hoax, I would not be surprised if global warming was a hoax.

  • equaltemp

  • Dennis

  • TJ2000

    Considering that even if “Global Warming” was true – It measured (as someone else mentioned) at 0.005% CO2 gain; It hardly constitutes any valid concern. Same nut-jobs conspiring to make 0.00001% arsenic labelled “poisonous” while bottled water contains 0.01% arsenic. A valuable lesson in common-sense is — “the dose makes the poison”. Any non-substantial evidence being made so largely publicized is always the symptom of an ulterior motive.

    Climate change is REAL! It happens every year and it’s called: Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. It’s all about controlling resources and ultimately controlling man. All these sheeple and Algorians need to think for THEMSELVES. I too was on that green bandwagon but had to write a paper for one of my classes on the warming. Needless to say, I’ve changed my position and am sorry I took for granted someone’s claim “just because” of who they were

    • R. Kooi

      If you want to discuss
      “controlling resources and ultimately controlling man”
      you must discuss
      who is controlling those resources Today ! ?
      you must discuss
      who is controlling those men Today ! ?

      6.5%
      of the entire WORLD’S GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT today is funneled directly to the 4000+ families that control/own the Fossil Fuel industry and subordinated industries!
      .
      TODAY !
      in the form of SUBSIDIES, SUPPORTS, TRAINING WAGES and JOB TRAINING, SWEET HEART TAX DEALS, INFRASTRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION and ALL MAINTENANCE…etc.

      Paul Ryan admitted, August 2016, that by the end of THAT year, the US will have supplied over $1,000,000,000,000 (TRILLION) just in supports and subsidies

      ((( Did you see the interview on FOX BUSINESS….Petroleum Industry whining about the HIGHEST CORP. TAX in the WORLD !
      …..what they never mentioned in the hour long interview
      …. NOT 1 Corporation has EVER paid that rate
      …..most pay 4%….some as high as 20%
      ……much of those taxes are deferred with weak pay back procedures.)))
      .
      Those supports do not even touch the PROFIT MARGINS of these major player corporations.
      and
      IF ANY nation objects, the US Military is always on standby, as well as the world’s assorted militaries.

      DO you really think our current objections to IRAN and the NUCLEAR DEAL is really about Nuclear Weapons do you??

      It is about THEIR ability to say NO to US demands.

            a 30% Middle Class Tax Cut
            a 10% across the board Tax Cut

            and he gave “US”:
            1/3 of the Middle Class actually get a tax increase from eliminated deductions,
            The rest of the Middle Class got a few hundred dollars…but only for a few years…since the AUTOMATICALLY END.

            Sexual-Assault Allegations

            Where and when: Various, 1970s-2005

            The dirt:

            Even before the release of a 2005 video in which he boasted about sexually assaulting women—“Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” he said, as well as “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything”—there’s a long line of allegations against Trump. Jill Harth says Trump assaulted her in the 1990s. Trump’s ex-wife Ivana Trump once suggested he had raped her, though she has since recanted her story. Former Miss Utah Temple Taggart said he kissed her on the lips inappropriately. But since the release, more women have come forward. Two told The New York Times that Trump had assaulted them, one saying he tried to put his hand up her skirt on a flight in the 1970s and another saying he forcibly kissed her. A Florida woman says Trump groped her. A former People reporter recounted an alleged assault at his Mar-a-Lago debate, and says he told her, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” Several former teen pageant contestants said Trump walked in on them while they were naked or partially dressed.

            The upshot:

            Trump denies all of the allegations. In the sexual-assault cases, Trump faces the difficulty that he in some cases bragged openly about just the behavior of which he has accused—whether grabbing or forcibly kissing. Trump has demanded a retraction from the Times, and has threatened to sue several outlets. The paper, in a letter, refused. A woman who brought a rape case against Trump (twice) withdrew her suit in November, but in January, Summer Zervos sued Trump for defamation, after he labeled her claims of sexual assault false.

            Climate Change deniers are more about placing blame and demonizing their fellow Americans, bashing Al Gore and Democrats and anyone else the right-wing GOP – bought and paid for by the Koch Bros and fossil fuel corporations — lie and lie and lie about. Ignoring scientific data that proves Climate Change is real, caused by carbon emissions since the beginning of the Industrial age. Oceans are becoming more acidic, fish will become affordable for only the rich very soon, permafrost is melting, glaciers are disappearing, the poles are melting ice in never seen before amounts, animal species are dying off and still they deny deny deny.

            Need to check your “Facts” aka fake news. Hillary Clinton actually started the Obama Birther scheme to try and help herself at the voting poles and discredit (although it wouldn’t have taken much) Obama’s rising popularity among the MSM.

            You are just flat out wrong. You have succumbed to the poison of MSLSD and the Communist News Network. You don’t think for yourself or research the garbage they spew at you. You simply swallow and proselytize their dogma.

          • R. Kooi

            No Kenny Dear….YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR FACTS.

            Factcheck.org

            FALSE

            Though it’s true that the specific allegation that Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. first reared its head during the 2008 presidential race, rumblings about Obama’s “otherness” had been percolating since long before that.

            In 2004,

            a political gadfly named Andy Martin issued a press release calling Barack Obama a “complete fraud” who had “misrepresented his heritage” in his memoir, Dreams From My Father, and “is a Muslim who has concealed his religion.”

            The theme was pushed further in December 2006 by conservative columnist Debbie Schlussel, who published an article entitled “Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, Always a Muslim,” which stated that “Obama has a ‘born-again’ affinity for the nation of his Muslim father, Kenya.”

            In March 2007, Clinton campaign strategist Mark Penn proposed attacking Obama on the basis of his “lack of American roots.” And, in December 2007, a Clinton volunteer county coordinator in Iowa was fired for forwarding an e-mail making the by-then familiar claim that Obama is a Muslim.

            The fact that you believe in Factcheck.org is hilarious. Do you also cite CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, and the Washington Post as truthful sources?

          • R. Kooi

            The Annenberg Foundation has a truly WIDE range of associations from Richard M. Nixon to Obama.

            I have yet to find a major conflict in FactCheck.org…despite your lazy effort to refute what I say by disputing FactCheck.org.
            not by coming up with any facts.

            Link to legit. source not your lying blogs.

          • R. Kooi

            fake facts that Trump supporters believe are true

            1. Trump is a devoted Christian.

            The thrice-married, pu$$y-grabbing, Pedophile Epstein cavorting, Bill Clinton associating, TRUMP is actually quite the exemplary Christian, at least in the minds of his supporters.

            They are so convinced of this fake fact that they welcomed Trump at Jerry Fallwell’s Christian Liberty University this past weekend, where the president was given an honorary doctorate.

            2. The economy is improving because of Trump.

            If there’s anything Trump does better than filing for Chapter 11, it’s taking credit for things other people have done.

            Part-time First Lady Melania Trump stole a speech from Michelle Obama, so it only seems fitting that the Donald do it as well. Now, even though he hasn’t signed a single piece of economic legislation and all economic data is just a continuation of President Obama’s efforts, Trump seems to have no issue taking credit for all of the positive economic news. And despite the fact that Trump had been in office for a whopping two weeks, Fox News gave Trump full credit for a positive jobs report in January.

            3. ‘Millions voted illegally’ (without a single shred of proof).

            Not too long ago,

            a poll found that 55 percent of Trump supporters believe his daft conspiracy theory that the only reason he lost the popular vote is because “millions voted illegally” for Hillary Clinton. Ignorance is bliss, right?

            ((( across the entire nation…fewer that 5000 votes are being investigated…Except in REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED NORTH CAROLINA….where REPUBLICAN VOTER FRAUD WAS ADMITTED and IS BEING PRESECUTED )))

            4. Immigration is off the rails and illegal immigrants are all violent criminals.

            Trump played to the racist tendencies of working-class whites when he declared that Mexicans were criminals and rapists, except for some. He also took a page from Richard Nixon’s handbook and touted law and order for the silent majority. But here’s the thing for folks who reside in Realitytown, USA: net migration from Mexico is basically zero and stats show that undocumented immigrants are actually less likely to commit crimes than American citizens. But facts are not how you Make America Great Again!

            5. Trump should have the power to overturn judicial rulings.

            Utterly clueless when it comes to the U.S. Constitution (except for the Second Amendment), 51 percent of Trump supporters think the Executive Branch should have the power to overrule the Judicial Branch. This came after Trump was overruled in his efforts to impose a Muslim travel ban.

            6. Trumpcare is great while Obamacare is awful.

            Okay,

            this one is especially heinous. During Trump’s presidential campaign, he talked constantly about how easy it would be to gut Obamacare and impose a version of his own that would cover everyone.

            .
            Here are the facts:
            .

            Around 24 million people will lose their health insurance—many of them his most vocal supporters
            Premiums, especially for Americans 50 and older, will increase dramatically.
            States can opt-out of protecting people with pre-existing conditions.
            Coverage will get worse.
            Medicaid will be gutted.

            Trumpcare is stealing from the poor to give to the rich, but his supporters don’t mind being screwed by their dear leader.

            7. Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

            Ah yes, the birther question. The very thing that catapulted a washed-up reality TV host to political fame and fortune. Trump had been accusing President Obama of not being born in America for years, which seems to have resonated with his supporters: 59 percent of Trump supporters didn’t think Obama was born in the United States, while just a mere 23 percent said he was.

            8. There’s a war on gun owners.

            Despite the fact that gun ownership ballooned under President Obama and his sensible gun legislation failed miserably in the NRA-owned Republican Congress, Trump supporters believed there was a major “war” on guns. The biggest (and stupidest) conspiracy was the one involving Jade Helm, when right-wingers thought a military exercise was actually a secret ploy by Obama to declare martial law and seize all the guns.

            9. All the investigations into Trump’s ties to Russia are bogus.

            Despite the overwhelming amount of evidence that continues to pile up regarding Trump’s ties to Putin during the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, his supporters will hear nothing of it. They love Russia and think CNN and every other major news outlet is fake news that hates America. Bear in mind, all of this seems to be leading up to impeachment. But yeah, nothing to see here.

            10. Trump is honest and trustworthy.

            This may be the greatest fake fact of fake facts: Trump is honest and trustworthy. Despite the fact that nearly everything that comes out of his mouth is a brazen lie that can be disproved in a New York minute, his supporters think he’s honest. That’s just a special kind of ignorance you can’t fix. While some of his supporters have since seen the light of day, a majority of them still trust him despite all the explanations of his lies the media makes.

            In short,

            it may just take Trump throwing puppies into a firepit for a majority of his supporters to recognize him for the lying con man that he is.

            While Donald Trump deals with the aftermath of lewd comments he made about women back in 2005, the public still has not gotten any real answers about at least another potentially problematic aspect of Trump’s history: his past friendship with billionaire and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

But the problem was they did not want the middle class to enjoy what they and their wealthy chosen enjoy.

            .
            As evidence of how renewables are cheaper, take, for example, Northern Indiana Public Service Co. Indiana is the nation’s third-largest consumer of coal, after Texas and Illinois, and NIPSCO got nearly all of its electricity from coal-fired plants as recently as 2010.
            .
            It’s now planning to shut down two of its three coal plants by 2028 and replace them with renewables.
            .
            “Cost-competitiveness that has been evolving in the market, pointing toward the need to accelerate the retirement of our coal-fired electric generation and replace it with lower-cost renewable sources,” it said.

            Similarly,

            American Electric Power Co., one of the nation’s largest consumers of coal, told regulators it wants to build 900 MW of wind and solar generation.
            .
            “These decisions are being driven by economics, where the utility is saying renewable energy is the least-cost and less-risk option to customers,” said Ben Inskeep, an analyst at EQ Research told E&E News.
            .
            And it’s not just utilities that are getting into the game.

            similarly, the LAST Hard Frost in the Spring
            (the traditional start of the planting season)
            is a couple of weeks EARLIER than it was a century ago.

          1. Air
          Before the government began to rein in pollution from smokestacks and tailpipe, dense, dark and even choking smog was a frequent occurrence in American cities and towns.
          .
          In 1948,
          spectators at a football game in Donora, Pennsylvania couldn’t see the players or the ball because of smog from a nearby coal-fired zinc smelter; 20 people died.
          .
          In Los Angeles in the 1960s, smog often hid the mountains.
          .
          The Clean Air Act of 1970 gave EPA the authority to regulate harmful air pollutants.
          .
          One of the most dramatic success stories was lead, which was widely used in paint but also in gasoline to improve engine performance.
          .
          EPA estimated that more than 5,000 Americans were dying every year from heart disease linked to lead poisoning; many children were growing up with diminished IQ.
          .
          ** By 1974, the EPA began a phase out of lead from gasoline. The gradual effort took until 1995 to completely end the practice, but the result has been a measurable 75 percent drop in blood lead levels in the public.
          .
          Thanks to Clean Air Act rules,
          the levels of many other toxic substances in our air, such as mercury, benzene, and arsenic, have also dropped substantially.

          .
          A major update to the law in 1990 allowed EPA to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from power plants, the main cause of acid rain. Life has begun to come back in acidified lakes in the Adirondacks.

          Complying with EPA’s air pollution rules has been costly
          —they’re the biggest burden the agency imposes on the economy.

          But the federal Office of Management and Budget, analyzing data collected from 2004 to 2014, estimates that the health and other benefits of the rules far exceeded the costs
          **
          The Cuyahoga River
          was once one of the most polluted rivers in the United States as represented by the multitude of times it has caught fire, a recorded number of thirteen starting in 1868.
          .
          The most potent blaze occurred in 1952 which caused over $1.3 million in damages however,
          the most fatal fire happened in 1912 with a documented five deaths. The 1969 fire, which did not incur maximum damages or fatally wound any citizen, was the most covered incident occuring on the river.
          This was in part because of the developing precedence that sanitation held over industrial actions; the United States was becoming more eco-aware.
          .
          Also, due to the shift from industry to technology, waste dumping to recycling Time Magazine produced an article about the incident. This brought mass amount of attention to the Cleveland area
          and added pressure for hygienic regulation.

          Inspired by the 1969 river fire,
          Congress was determined to resolve the issue of land pollution, not just in Cleveland, but throughout the United States.
          .
          The legislature passed the National Environment Protection Act (NEPA) which was signed into law on January 1, 1970. This act helped establish the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which would be given the duties to manage environmental risks and regulate various sanitary-specific policies.
          .
          One of the first legislations that the EPA put-forth was the Clean Water Act (1972), which mandated that all rivers throughout the United States be hygienic enough to safely allow mass amounts of swimmers and fish within the water by 1983. Since the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District has invested over $3.5 billion towards the purification of the river and the development of new sewer systems. There is a projection that over the next thirty years the city of Cleveland will further endow over $5 billion to the upkeep of the wastewater system.

          The river is now home to about sixty different species of fish, there has not been another river fire since 1969, and yearly new waste management programs develop to ensure the sanitation of Cleveland’s waterways….”

            What do you make of the 800,000 year Vostok ice core data, showing cyclical changes on this planet (from Ice Age to Warming) on roughly a 110,000 year interval. How about the fact that same data shows about a 12,000 year LAG in CO2 vs temperature (meaning Temp drives CO2, NOT the other way around). What do you make of Milankovitch cycles, describing the cyclical changes in how this planet orbits around the Sun (our HEAT SOURCE)? Orbital eccentricity cycles are approximately 110,000 years (weird eh?), and they affect our proximity (distance for idiots like you) to that heat source. Earth’s inclination angles (affecting where on the planet it’s cold vs hot) also vary. You are not even 1/2 as smart as you think you are. You are a typical big government commie, thinking we need gov’ment and acedemics that profit from this hoax to “lead the way”. This planet’s cycles only allow life to exist at my lattitude on this planet about 15,000 out of every 110,000 years. The rest of that time it’s buried under 2 miles of ice (I live in the Great Lakes area….formed due to the warming period after the LAST Ice Age). You are a sheep, being led by idiots running your sick ideology.

          • R. Kooi

            It shows just how scientifically ignorant YOU ARE !

            Those Ice Cores are part of Global Warming Science.

            1.

            Google the Milankovitch Cycles….it is Earth’s orbit pulling us away from the sun or toward the sun that triggers those cycles of Cooling and warming.

            It is at the start, for example, of the next inter-glacial warm period … that Earth’s orbit and Axial Tilt returns toward the sun…initiating warming…and releasing quantities of CO2…which jump starts the warming….

            THAT is the beginning and the ending of such a cycle is where CO2 lags… 200 year to 800 years out of tens of thousands of years.

            You just repeated what I said. Climate Change is just the latest wordsmithing for Global Warming. It’s a scam, it’s natural cycles driven by our orbital cycles around the sun. Thanks for agreeing pencil dick

          • R. Kooi

            Alexander von Humboldt Coined and Defined Climate Change as a scientific concept during his speaking tour of S. America. It was decades later that Science definitively pointed at Global Warming.

            The Repopularizing of the Climate Change was Actually pushed by a Republican PR man.

          • Iva Bigun

            OK, so the thing that “triggers” the change is cycle is NOT CO2, since it lags temperature, therefore CO2 is NOT a driver of temperature change on this planet. The reverse is actually true….temperature rises (thanks to our relationship to the nuclear star) cause CO2 in ice form to be released by the world’s oceans. When temp declines, the oceans reabsorb it. Bottom line, temp drives CO2 levels, not the reverse as your ilk likes to parrot

          • R. Kooi

            For 200 yrs to 800yrs the milankovitch cycles are triggers.

            for the other 95,000-110,000 years CARBON IS CLEARLY IN CONTROL…LOOK AT THE GRAPHS I gave you.

            This Holocene inter glacial warm period peaked 7,500 to 8,500 years ago….for the following 8,000 +- years temps were falling…Hell, much of the last 1,000 years is called the little ice age…and it was terminated by human activities.

            and temps leveled off and have been rising for centuries since.

            Look at record highs and lows by State. The 1930s had the most record highs, most record lows are post 1970. You rely on data from people enriching themselves from this hoax. Kinda like the Collusion hoax, that is about to boomerang and send Brobama people to prison for a failed coup attempt. Say bah little sheep.

            We will be cooling at some point in the future, just as we always have. The point is, we haven’t hit previous highs yet, and should expect increase until we descend into the next cycle. You have no clue on sun output over the previous 800,000 years and therefore have no way to draw a direct correlation between it and Earth’s temp. Milankovich cycles deal with relative position to sun and those do show correlation to data.

          • Iva Bigun

            Weren’t we supposed to be underwater by now? Thought the Greenland was gonna be gone long ago. EVERY single prediction made by Climate Alarmists, based on ineffective modeling, has fallen by the wayside.

            Earth’s tilt is away from the Sun???? That depends on the hemisphere you’re in moron. It’s always titled toward the sun, what changes is the inclination angle over time. Our distance to the sun changes between elliptical and almost circular. We’re not moving “out” away from the sun, just only the path of the orbit is changing. Maybe you’re thinking of the moon’s orbit about the Earth.

            Also, there is plenty of evidence of sea level being MUCH higher in the past than it is today. We have some warming to do, and yeah, sea levels will rise. It’s not because of a trace element in the atmosphere.

            You use information from people profitting on a hoax to prove the hoax. WHERE ARE THE PICTURES OF THE TREEs YOU PLANTED, YOUR SOLAR PANELS, YOUR WINDMILLS, YOUR CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE GREEN ENERGY HOAX???? Instead, Marxists like you think they can use the force of government to make us all fall in line. I have news for you, the people are swallowing this hoax. When are you going to make the ultimate sacrifice, and rid the world of the carbon footprint you produce? It’s a TRACE ELEMENT fool, and has far less effect than water vapor. Do you want to rid the world of water vapor next? Why are you against the PROVEN ability for plants to flourish more, and provide food for the growing population (see link)? I personally CAN’T WAIT until you fools push this too far, it will come to an ugly end.

          • Iva Bigun

            Please pass along some pictures of the Trees you planted, the pretty Windmills located on your property, the Solar Panel bank that sustains your electricity needs, and some proof of all your own money that you’ve donated to support this hoax research. I would also hope you’re voluntarily contributing extra tax dollars to pay for the subsidies handed out to keep the “green energy” industry afloat.

            Personally, since I’m a Capitalist and you’re a Socialist, I’d rather gov’ment stay the hell out of it. No subsidies to buy electric cars, solar panels, further research into this hoax. Those that “believe” in this should “invest” their own money into it, then sell their goods on the open market. The problem is, they can’t sell it without subsidies. And yes I’m consistent, I also would provide no subsidies to the fossil fuel industry.

            No dipshit, read the legend on the graph.

          • Iva Bigun

            Just the very idea that you think temp drives CO2 at the beginning and end of cycles, but not in between, tells me everything I need to know about you. I wonder what makes that magic driver-response relationship suddenly change? I wonder what color the sky is your world

          • Iva Bigun

            Here’s some more graphs for you to chew on.

            On this one, I put a best fit curve thru the high peaks of the previous 4 warming cycles. We are BELOW those highs, and should EXPECT warming to continue for some time. Eventually, the Ice Age will regrip Wisconsin.

            The next two graphs are just to show how foolish people can look at data and come up with the inane conclusion you did….about CO2 lagging at the begging and end of cycles, but not between. It’s all in how you scale the graph. You can shift datasets up.down on a graph, fooling those of less intelligence into thinking a driver/response relationship has “flipped” by some weird miracle. Initially, I gave you credit for being 1/2 as smart as you think you are, I’m dropping that down to a 1/4. You like to parrot what others say and source data from people creating this hoax. You have no critical thinking skills of your own.

            Understood by all concerned,

            Ice cores are inaccurate for the latest 150 years…

            The Graph we have used here is accurate only thru about 1855 !

            Good grief you’re pathetic. I’m glad you’re gay and won’t produce offspring capable of falling so easily for other tinfoil hat wearing hoaxes. Let me guess, Trump colluded with Russia and does Putin’s bidding? Jussie and OJ are innocent and now will find the real killers and racist MAGA hat wearing attackers? Whenever something doesn’t agree with your preconceived notions, you find some BS curve from some BS website. CO2, 0.04% of the atmosphere, is causing global warming, right? Forget that water vapor much more abundant and natural has far greater impact. I hope you ride your bike back and forth to work. Again, I don’t see why people like you aren’t out planting trees somewhere. Instead, you THINK you are going to drive this Socialist agenda down everyone’s throat. I have news for you, you and your little girlie friends aren’t nearly man enough

          • Iva Bigun

            Where is the raw data that produced those curves in the 1880-1980 time frame? It’s not from ice cores, where it from? What we do know is Climate “Scientists” use their Climate Models to “fill in the blanks” for temperatures where they can’t record them. They fill in the blanks with data necessary to make the models work. I’ve dealt with FEA modeling for a long time. Even after 30 years, it still produced relatively useless results, especially in dynamic situations. They constantly use actual test data to “correct” their model, but after 30 years their model results still suck. Climate Models, seriously? People that can’t predict if it will rain or not 1 week from now? You put way to much belief in Climate Scientists, people that only exist if they keep this myth going. They produce NOTHING that can be sold on the open market, and only exist thanks to government grants. The same government types (Socialist/Commies like yourself) that want to control anything and everything that you do. It’s a hoax, just like Trump Russia Collusion (although this is about to turn and expose the Obama administration communist coup attempt)

            So how many trees have YOU planted so far this month precious? Did YOU ride your bike to work every day this month?

            So once it warms up, you’ll spend time planting trees and riding your bike to work? I bet not. Socialism is for the “people”, not the Socialist.

            How many did you plant last summer? You’re really worried about this based on your precious tirades, so I’m sure you’re actively involved in reducing the CO2 in the atmosphere. We need to reduce it from being a trace element to a lesser trace element.

          • Iva Bigun

            Since CO2 increase is directly related to population increase, it is evident that the graph below is also true. The way I see it, all we have to do is get rid of Liptards and that will save the world. Your ilk loves killing babies (60M in the last 40 years), perhaps you all could make the ultimate sacrifice to save the world. Either that, or try to force your views on the rest of us, and we’ll take care of it.

            Let’s look at another region of the world. Why do you think Greenland and Iceland were named as they are by the Vikings? Could possibly be that Greenland was once green and Iceland once completely covered in that cold white stuff??? Was it the activity of these people by rowing their longboats that caused the massive melting of Iceland or were they hauling ice from there and carrying it to Greenland. Based upon the hypotheses you preach and worship human activity is THE cause of the effect.

          • R. Kooi

            In point of fact….The Vikings found Iceland and the Captain named it ICELAND because there IS and WAS a whole lotta ice

            …and when the Vikings attempted to round up families to Colonize ICELAND….guess what….few volunteered.

            So when Greenland was located…the Captain was not allowed to name it…..There was about as much GREEN on GREENLAND as there is today…..

            Greenland enabled Colonization with less coercion and fewer incentives.

            Human activity IS the Cause of Effect TODAY !

          It is time for a strong political leader to take charge and end this deadlock.

          We could either reduce taxes and let the new technologies out compete the obsolete systems we depend on now, or we could keep taxes the same and simply redirect the subsidies we use for fossil fuels and destructive industrialized agriculture towards modern sustainable systems instead. The one thing that won’t work is keep the tax and spend schemes the Neo-Luddites have made for themselves now, and also add even more tax and spend schemes for their competing new technologies too!

          Executive summary:
          Yes we can reverse Global Warming.
          It does not require huge tax increases or overly expensive untested risky technologies.
          It will require a three pronged approach worldwide.

          1]
          Reduce fossil fuel use by replacing energy needs with as many feasible renewables as current technology allows.
          .
          ((solar & wind Cost less & are quicker to construct + + they produce FAR less expensive electricity than coal))
          .
          Change Agricultural methods to high yielding regenerative models of production made possible by recent biological & agricultural science advancements.
          Large scale ecosystem recovery projects similar to the Loess Plateau project, National Parks like Yellowstone etc. where appropriate and applicable.

          2]
          Project Drawdown
          The list is comprised primarily of “no regrets” solutions—actions that make sense to take regardless of their climate impact since they have intrinsic benefits to communities and economies. These initiatives improve lives, create jobs, restore the environment, enhance security, generate resilience, and advance human health.[5]

          3]
          Farming a climate change solution
          Farmers have a golden solution to global warming largely missed by climate change pundits, right beneath their feet. The innovative Australian Soil Carbon Accreditation Scheme is showing how incentive payments can be received by landholders for measurable increases in soil carbon that soaks up CO2 from the atmosphere. Financial incentives could help fund soil restoration efforts, which in turn bring the bonus of greater productivity, drought resilience and even rain. The action is deep underground.[6]

            government subsidies and liberal fear mongering wouldn’t be pushing funds in that direction…. artificially inflating those numbers right? Also they get big tax breaks which are winding down. Also tariffs have driven material prices up for manufacturing of these generators. That means prices going to go up. Not only that we cant just jump to these sources immediately without crashing.

            What about the fact that we get a lot of these materials from china? They don’t exactly have strict emission laws. So its a trade off. Less emissions here, for more there.

            Anyway im not saying shit on the environment….but we don’t need liberal communism to save our lives or we die in 12 years. Get real. You think all the advances we have made would be possible in a hardcore socialist state?

            The Single Most Heavily Subsidized/Supported Industries in the world and In the USA Alone, are the Fossil Fuel Industries…and they have been profitable every year…but on the public dole since 1918.

            Hundreds of Billions of Dollars…excluding the sweet heart Tax Deals they get, they get: free infrastructure construction, free infrastructure maintenance, fire, police, wage supports, even foreign aid bills that specifically mandate aid to nations as REIMBURSEMENT for THEIR Subsidies.

            Renewable Energy pays regular corporate tax rates
            but folks and small businesses that invest gain tax credits.

            All in All, Fossil Fuels are THE most heavily subsidized industries in the world.

            Just 18 years ago, their subsidies TOTALED 1% of the entire world’s GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT….in addition to profits.

            TODAY, 6.5% of the entire world’s GDP is sucked into the hands of a few thousand families ! !

            I feel sorry for those that have been suckered into believing man made climate change is reality. For those deluded souls I suggest reading “Inconvenient Facts: The science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know” by Gregory Wrightstone. It not only debunks the hoax and exposes the hoaxers, it gives references, citations and links to it’s material. But I don’t think you’re a deluded soul. You seem to be a left wing zealot, aware of the hoax, but part of the cabal of globalists determined to use a manufactured crisis to destroy the United States, it’s industry, it’s people and it’s wealth. You are transparent and disgusting. And being used.

            Is it clear to you yet, that something is going on??

            My Grand Father was a farmer and often cited the fact that his growing season had significantly lengthened as has my cousin in central Illinois.

            But with the blessings of a longer growing season…has come a dramatic increase in unpredictable weather.

            Read the book. In 900 AD, there was no snow cover on Greenland, and they were growing grapes all over England. 400 years later it got cold, Vikings closed up shop in Greenland and people in Europe, who were used to warm weather for centuries, huddled in their homes to keep warm, along with rats and their fleas, then at least 25% of the population died from the Black Death. Now THAT’S climate change.

            I have been studying this subject since the 60s.

            Sadly you have no idea how truly ignorant you sound.

            The last time Greenland was ice free was 280,000 YEARS ago.

            It was a little warmer 985AD when Erik the Red Arrived within a few dozen miles of the ocean coast, and there was more farming then, than now…thanks to a very favorable ocean current…” They built manor houses and hundreds of farms; they imported stained glass; they raised sheep, goats and cattle; they traded furs, walrus-tusk ivory, live polar bears and other exotic arctic goods with Europe. “These guys were really out on the frontier,” ”

            “But eventually, the conventional narrative continues, they had problems. Overgrazing led to soil erosion. A lack of wood—Greenland has very few trees, mostly scrubby birch and willow in the southernmost fjords—prevented them from building new ships or repairing old ones. But the greatest challenge—and the coup de grâce
            —came when the climate began to cool, triggered by an event on the far side of the world.

            “In 1257, a volcano on the Indonesian island of Lombok erupted. Geologists rank it as the most powerful eruption of the last 7,000 years. Climate scientists have found its ashy signature in ice cores drilled in Antarctica and in Greenland’s vast ice sheet, which covers some 80 percent of the country. Sulfur ejected from the volcano into the stratosphere reflected solar energy back into space, cooling Earth’s climate

            This Holocene inter-glacial warm period PEAKED in temperatures 6500 to 8000 years ago. Temps have been falling since then, with brief leveling off periods, followed by more falling temperatures.

            LAST YEAR that Percentage has skyrocketed to 6.5% of world GDP…many trillions of dollars.

            Green Subsidies/supports/ freebies in the US is measured in a few billion dollars.

            And in spite of The Fossils Dogged Determination…Solar and Wind have helped control and reduce Electric rates in all competitive markets…
            .
            Over just the past six years, the cost of solar energy has dropped dramatically, to the point where it is now even cheaper than wind power in emerging markets.
            This may be largely due to rising investments in solar over the last few years.

            Now, there is electricity being produced in Chile for $29.10 per megawatt-hour–under half the price of power produced by coal.

            “Renewables are robustly entering the era of undercutting” energy made by fossil fuels, Bloomberg New Energy Finance chairman Michael Liebreich wrote this week.

            This is great news for developing nations, which do not generally have the kind of infrastructure that developed countries have dedicated to fossil fuels already in place. As they build their energy infrastructure, it will make sense to go with cheaper, renewable options, more so than it does for a country like the United States to abandon our formidable fossil-fuel based infrastructure.

            Grew up there, Lived there… done that. I know TVA. I know about TVA and I know that the Federal Government will never deregulate such a money generator fir them. They can, and do manipulate delivery to “justify” rate increases by stating there is not enough to go around. The old and worn “Supply and Demand” argument. Hiw do I know this??? I have many friends who are engineers and technicians at TVA and they are restricted from increasing generation to more than 45% of capacity at any hydro generation plant.
            Power from TVA was, 10 years ago, at .25+ per kWh. What more do you need than reality. My family lives there. They are charged much more now. The power in the area my family lives is hydro. No coal, some nuclear.
            My home in Texas, I pay 8.4 cents per Kwh. My manufacturing business, I pay 3.7 cents per Kwh with my current contracts. Natural gas generated power and deregulated. Now that “renewable” wind turbine is beginning to come on line, new rates are skyrocketing. Just spoke to my broker this week. Due directly to the “Renewable Wind Turbine Power” coming on line, rates will double at minimum.

            Many Many of the TVA activities are NOT ABLE TO PRODUCE A PROFIT.

            TVA DOES NOT SELL ELECTRICITY AT 25 CENTS / KWH.

            TVA production of electricity is hated by Privately owned electric manufacturers because it does not produce a profit and there for undercuts private industry.

            “The most controversial activity of the TVA is the production and sale of electric power, which has been resisted by privately owned power companies. The TVA contracts with municipalities and cooperatives to supply wholesale power for distribution and has joined with them in purchasing the facilities of privately owned electric-utility companies in the region. These purchases have established an integrated power service area in which the TVA is the sole supplier of power. The TVA power system, which includes more than 50 dams, as well as coal-fired thermal plants and operable nuclear plants, possesses a huge generating capacity. Power is sold in bulk, about half to federal agencies and half to large industries and locally owned municipal and cooperative distribution systems; and electric rates in the Tennessee River valley are among the lowest in the nation. Because of critics’ claims that the low rates are made possible by the TVA’s tax exemption and lack of obligation to show a profit on its operations

          • Kenneth Clark

            TVA is a government monopoly in a region of many poor. You claim the progressives are for the poor and yet Obama refused to sell TVA and deregulate so the poor could have a choice.
            If this isn’t a mark of what will happen with healthcare and transportation under the rule of your communistic gods, you will never see the light.
            My grandfather owned land in Southeast Tennessee when TVA came through wanting to erect power poles across his land. He asked what they had paid his neighbors to do the same and he was told 0, nada, nothing. But, he being a good neighbor was told by others they had received $1.00 per pole from TVA.
            I don’t care what your article states that you pulled from the TVA site. It is a blatant lie. You forget, or as your Democrat brothers and sisters, just don’t give a crap. I know people who work for TVA. They work in various capacities and not one has ever said anything outside of how much money TVA profits from their monopoly.
            Read all you want, believe what your told to believe. I don’t care. I know the truth. You try to cover the truth because you refuse to open your eyes and like a good comrade, try to debunk truth as ignorance and stupidity of those presenting the truth to you.

            2, 3, 4 cent per Kwh…. What alternative universe do you reside in. They may eventually want it to sell for these amount but as I told you in an earlier post on this subject, wind generated power is just coming on line here. They are everywhere and I do mean everywhere.
            In speaking with my electric broker for my business, power rates will at least double due directly to “renewable” (wind generated) power. This was a conversation just last week. Not 3 months ago or a year ago.
            I currently (that means today) pay 3.7 cents per Kwh. That is what I pay. This power is natural gas generated power. Now due to federal mandates, rules and regulations requiring “Renewable” power utilization, my power rate that I will pay will be will be 7.4 cents per Kwh and quite possibly more.

            BIG Business has the Sense to GO Dependable & CHEAPER RENEWABLE ENERGY—-
            .
            As evidence of how renewables are cheaper, take for example, Northern Indiana Public Service Co. Indiana is the nation’s third-largest consumer of coal,
            after Texas and Illinois, and NIPSCO got nearly all of its electricity from coal-fired plants as recently as 2010.
            .
            It’s now planning to shut down two of its three coal plants by 2028 and replace them with renewables.
            .
            “Cost-competitiveness that has been evolving in the market,
            pointing toward the need to accelerate retirement of our coal-fired electric generation and replace it with lower-cost renewable sources,” it said.
            Similarly, American Electric Power Co., one of the nation’s largest consumers of coal, told regulators it wants to build 900 MW of wind and solar generation.
            .
            These decisions are being driven by economics, where the utility is saying renewable energy is the least-cost and less-risk option to customers,” said Ben Inskeep, an analyst at EQ Research told E&E News.
            .
            And it’s not just utilities that are getting into the game. Corporate purchases of renewable energy have grown around the world, reaching 7.2 gigawatts in 2018 according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

            you need to look up the “actual” cost of building wind and solar generators. Also, the rare earth ingredient that is necessary to build these comes mostly from china, and is very expensive. Also on going cost of maint. for these systems precludes any amortization of cost.

          • R. Kooi

            Wind and Solar have greater maintenance freedom than Killer COAL Electric Generation.

            And by the Way, WIND and SOLAR do not create hundreds of open pool toxic Coal Ash Waste Dumps across the country….
            ——-
            Every year in EACH of the nation’s CLEANEST Killer Coal ELECTRIC GENERATION plants produce 140 million tons of HIGHLY TOXIC COAL ASH WASTE / Year
            ——> the toxic by-product that is left over after the coal is burned and Smoke is Scrubbed.
            .
            THE CLEANEST COAL Electric PLANT still produces MILLIONS of Tons of TOXIC Coal Ash / year.

            Rare Earth minerals are expensive…but are in far greater use in Computers, Cell Phones etc…Wind/Solar are the tiniest of percentages of Rare Earth Used.

            And when you get done with your Ideological blather
            ….remember that Congressman Paul Ryan delivered a lengthy Lamentation in August, 2016 about the FACT that by that years end, the Fossil Fuel Industries will have passed a dubious threshold.
            ((( and every year since, even during the Trump admin.)))

            The USE of Cobalt in renewable energy fields is less than the TOXIC WASTE OF JUST 1 killer COAL ELECTRIC PLANT

            Lithium Batteries are not in widespread use in the Renewable Energy Industrial Plants.

            “Cobalt Statistics and Information

            Cobalt (Co) is a metal used in numerous diverse commercial, industrial, and military applications, many of which are strategic and critical. On a global basis, the leading use of cobalt is in rechargeable battery electrodes, Superalloys, which are used to make parts for gas turbine engines, are another major use for cobalt. Cobalt is also used to make airbags in automobiles; catalysts for the petroleum and chemical industries; cemented carbides (also called hardmetals) and diamond tools; corrosion- and wear-resistant alloys; drying agents for paints, varnishes, and inks; dyes and pigments; ground coats for porcelain enamels; high-speed steels; magnetic recording media; magnets; and steel-belted radial tire

          • Kenneth Clark

            I am well aware of the uses for cobalt. But that does not lessen it’s toxicity in the batteries used for storage. Yes, the system may now have some storage capacity. However, it will run out and that is why storage battery manufacturers are warring over cobalt and lithium to build the storage capacity.

            I suppose its cool to endanger children who are forced to mine these minerals. The respiratory and other disease caused by cobalt. Risking the spontaneous combustion and toxic gasses. But hey… Big Al says it’s the future so all this and more is pushed by the wayside for profits over human lives and safety. Sounds like the Progressive Democrats have taken slavery to a new level that their ancestors of the South had never imagined.
            …hypocrite much???
            Why don’t you try removing your lips from the exhaust pipe of Big Al’s mighty gas guzzling SUV and convince him first. You know example goes a lot farther than rhetoric and BS.

            Electrical Energy Storage (EES) refers to the process of converting electrical energy into a stored form that can later be converted back into electrical energy when needed.1 Batteries are the principal devices used for EES. The first battery—called Volta’s cell—was developed in 1800 and the first U.S. large-scale energy storage facility was the Rocky River Pumped Storage plant in 1929, on the Housatonic River in Connecticut.2,3 Research in energy storage has increased dramatically, especially after the first U.S. oil crisis in the 1970s, and with advancements in the cost and performance of rechargeable batteries.2,4 The impact energy storage can have on the current and future energy grid are substantial.5 • EES systems are often expressed by rated power in megawatts (MW) and energy storage capacity in megawatt-hours (MWh): the maximum charge/discharge power and the amount of energy capable of being stored, respectively.6 • As of June 2018, the U.S. had over 25.2 GW of rated power in energy storage compared to 1,082 GW of total in service installed generation capacity.7,8 Globally, installed energy storage totaled 175.8 GW.7 • 2.5% of delivered electric power in the U.S. is cycled through a storage facility. For comparison, 10% of delivered power in Europe and 15% of delivered power in Japan are cycled through energy storage facilities.9 • Globally, 1,361 energy storage projects were operational in 2018, with 18 projects under construction. 41% of operational projects and 33% of projects under construction are located in the U.S.7 • California leads the U.S. in energy storage with 220 operational projects (4.2 GW), followed by Virginia and South Carolina.7 • U.S. energy storage projects increased by 174% from 2013 to 2018.7,10 Deployed Technologies Several EES technologies are in research phases, but four storage technology types are considered deployed: Pumped Hydroelectric Storage (PHS), Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES), Advanced Battery Energy Storage (ABES), and Flywheel Energy Storage (FES). Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is also considered deployed.10 PHS and CAES are large-scale technologies capable of discharge times of tens of hours but are geographically limited.10 ABES and FES have lower power and shorter discharge times (from seconds to 6 hours) but are often not limited by geography. FES also suffers from short durations of storing energy (without significant self-discharge).10 Pumped Hydroelectric Storage (PHS) • PHS systems generate electricity by pumping water from a low to a high reservoir, releasing the water from the higher reservoir through a hydroelectric turbine when electricity is needed.10 • 94% of U.S. energy storage is from PHS, equating to 23.6 GW as of June 2018.7,12 • PHS plants have long lifetimes (50-60 years) and operate at 76-85% efficiency.10 Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) • CAES captures and stores compressed air in an underground cavern. To create electricity, the pressurized air is heated and expanded in an expansion turbine, driving a generator.12,13 • As of June 2018, there are 4 operating CAES systems in the U.S. with a combined rated power of 0.114 GW.7 • Existing CAES plants are based on the diabatic method, where the compression of the combustion air is separate from the gas turbine. The diabatic method can generate 3 times the output for every natural gas input, reduce CO2 emissions by 40-60%, and enable plant efficiencies of 42-55%.13 Advanced Battery Energy Storage (ABES) • ABES stores electrical energy in the form of chemical energy, which is then converted back into electricity when needed.14 • Batteries contain two electrodes (anode and cathode), two terminals composed of different chemicals, and the electrolyte that separates the terminals.2,14 The electrolyte enables the flow of ions between the two electrodes and external wires to allow for electrical charge to flow.14 • The U.S. has several operational battery-related energy storage projects based on lead-acid, lithium-ion, nickel-based, sodium-based, and flow batteries.7 These batteries account for 0.75 GW of rated power in 2018 and have efficiencies between 60-95%.7,15 Maturity of Energy Storage Technologies10 U.S. Grid-Connected Energy Storage Projects by State7 Characteristics of Energy Storage Technologies11 Deployed Demonstration Early Stage Technologies Pumped Hydro Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) Batteries (NaA, Li-ion, Pb-Acid) Advanced Pb-acid and Flow Batteries Synthetic Natural Gas Hydrogen Adiabatic CAES Electrochemical Capacitors Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) Flywheels Storage technologies in the early stages of research, and that will likely not be commercially available in 3-5 years, have been omitted.

            Flywheel Energy Storage (FES) • FES is mainly used for power management rather than longer-term energy storage. FES systems store electric energy via kinetic energy by spinning a rotor in a frictionless enclosure.16 The rotor is sped up or down to shift energy to or from the grid, which steadies the power supply.10 • There are two categories of FES: low-speed and high-speed. These systems rotate at rates up to 10,000 and 100,000 RPM (rotations per minute), respectively, and are best used for high power/low energy applications.16 • In 2018, flywheels accounted for 0.058 GW of rated power in the U.S. and have efficiencies between 85-87%.7,15

            Also to produce wind turbines itll need the amount of energy equivalent to the energy it will produce during its lifetime
            How do you think that energy is obtained

            YOUR COMMENT IS based on A BLOG with a singular political AX to grind!

            “In simplest terms,
            habitat destruction reduces the population by reducing the available resources, denying birds the chance to reproduce, and effectively putting a cap on the population size.

            .
            The problems outlined below are serious threats and are implicated in the declines of many species. They should be addressed.
            .
            Collisions
            Window strikes – estimated to kill 97 to 976 million birds/year – Millions of houses and buildings,
            .
            Communication towers – estimates of bird kills are impossible to make because of the lack of data, but totals could easily be over 5 million birds/year, and possibly as many as 50 million.
            .
            Electrocutions kill tens of thousands of birds per year. This occurs mainly when large birds such as raptors make contact between a live electrical wire and a ground such as a pole. .

            Cars may kill 60 million birds per year. .

            Wind turbines may kill 33,000 birds per year, and, as in the case of electrocutions, these birds tend to be large and scarce (e.g. raptors).
            The recent surge of interest in wind power has heightened concerns
            .
            Poisoning
            Pesticides may kill 72 million birds per year or possibly many more. The sub lethal effects of pesticides may also make the birds more susceptible to predators or unable to reproduce, essentially killing them. A New York study in 2000 found that common “over-the-counter” pesticides were responsible.
            .
            Oil spills kill hundreds of thousands of birds a year or more..
            .
            Oil and wastewater pits may kill up to 2 million birds per year.
            .
            Lead poisoning – kills unknown numbers of birds each year, but Bellrose (many years ago) estimated that about 4% of the waterfowl population dies annually due to lead poisoning, and the California Condor recovery team stated that lead poisoning was the primary cause of the condor population decline over the last 50 years.
            .
            Pollution – Acid rain has been linked to calcium problems.
            .
            Predation
            Hunting – as a point of reference the carefully-managed annual waterfowl hunt kills about 15 million birds a year in North America.
            .
            Domestic and Feral Cats – may kill 500 million birds per year or more.
            .
            By-catch – Tens to hundreds of thousands of seabirds are caught each year in nets and on hooks intended for fish.
            .
            The BirdLife International site (an excellent source of global bird conservation information) has detailed information about the albatross declines here .

            The concept of net energy must be applied to renewable sources of energy, such as windmills and photovoltaics. A two-megawatt windmill contains 260 tonnes of steel requiring 170 tonnes of coking coal and 300 tonnes of iron ore, all mined, transported and produced by hydrocarbons. The question is: how long must a windmill generate energy before it creates more energy than it took to build it? At a good wind site, the energy payback day could be in three years or less; in a poor location, energy payback may be never. That is, a windmill could spin until it falls apart and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

            “The idea that humans can change and are in fact changing the climate of our planet has developed gradually over more than a hundred years.

            A fringe idea

            in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries,

            it is close to a well-established scientific consensus at the turn of the twenty-first century.

            The history of this development is grippingly told in a small book, The Discovery of Global Warming,by science historian Spencer Weart.

            During the course of this history, the initially outlandish concept of human-caused global warming has won over practically every skeptical climatologist who has cared to look dis-passionately at the evidence.

            ….The rate of this warming (which is important for the ability of ecosystems to cope) is also highly unusual and unprecedented probably for an even longer time.

            The last major global warming trend occurred when the last great Ice Age ended between 15,000 and 10,000 years ago: this was a warming of about 5°C over 5,000 years, that is, a rate of only 0.1°C per century.

            The expected magnitude and rate of planetary warming is highly likely to come with major risks and impacts in terms of sea level rise (Pliocene sea level was 25–35 meters higher than now due to smaller Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets), extreme events (for example, hurricane activity is expected to increase in a warmer climate), and ecosystem loss.53

            The second part of this paper examined the evidence for the current warming of the planet and discussed what is known about its causes. This part showed that global warming is already a measured and well-established fact, not a theory.

            Many different lines of evidence consistently show that most of the observed warming of the past fifty years was caused by human activity.

            Above all,
            this warming is exactly what would be expected given the anthropogenic rise in green house gases, and no viable alternative explanation for this warming has been proposed in the scientific literature.

            Taken together, the very strong evidence, accumulated from thousands of independent studies, has over the past decades convinced virtually every climatologist around the world (many of whom were initially quite skeptical,

            including myself ) that anthropogenic global warming is a reality with which we need to deal with,

            I am old enough to remember the first Earth Day in 1970. remember it well, and also I remember all the dire predictions that never happened. We were told in 1990, that by the year 2000 that BILLIONS of people would be DEAD and entire continents would be GONE. We were told that the sea level would substantially rise where we live in Florida. That was supposed to be 9 years ago. It didn’t happen. I’ve been hearing we only have 10 years left for 47 years.

            Global Warming Science has never predicted that cold weather would disappear by a date certain in 2019, for example.

            Quite the contrary… they predicted that weather patterns would become a lot more tumultuous and less predictable.

Ah, lets go with 25 to be in the safe side Ralph.” Go back inside and broadcast 25% rain for the day, and been doing it the exact same way for the past 58 freaking years. Now that is some accurate data… oh, and if they happen to guess it right 50% of the time they get a promotion to “Climatologist”. Then you get to guess at world weather, write your guesses down and become a “Revered and Published Scientist” that people like you believe and then scream “The sky is falling”. The sky isn’t falling, they just misguessed it again and it’s actually raining.

          • Sanity&Reason

            I guess anyone can make a graph.. Is this in Germany, only? How far back does your data go? 1980 is not far enough. In the USA, we have data that goes back to the early 1900’s. We had some HORRIBLE disasters in the early 1900’s and dotted here and there throughout over 100 years. Our disasters have gone up and down with no regard whatsoever to CO2.

          • R. Kooi

            The REASON 1980 is a starting point on a few graphs…it is the first full year of confirmed satellite climate Temperature readings…and Science generally requires long term studies … 30, 50, 100 years and longer.

            Natural Disasters have been increasing along with world temperatures.

            Napolitano explained that President Donald Trump admitted to a crime on
            camera and that crime is an impeachable one.

            “It is a crime for the president to solicit aid for his campaign from a foreign government,” said Napolitano.

            “So, that to which the president has admitted is in and of itself a crime?” Smith asked.

            “Yes, it is the same crime for which the Trump Organization was investigated by Bob Mueller, who decided not to seek an indictment because there wasn’t enough evidence,” Napolitano agreed.

Look at California and the heavy government thumb of the Democrats. People they don’t care about (Northern California and for the most part conservative) are experiencing full black outs in electrical power and can do nothing about it. All because the all knowing Dems gave all of the control to their crooked buddies at PP&E.

            Records have only been kept in the US since 1850, so who is to say warmer temps didn’t exist before? The reason there is an uptick in natural disasters is because we have more technology to detect and track them and more people living in affected areas. If we had the same technology and same populations in the 1700’s, I’m sure the numbers would be comparable. It’s convenient to only use numbers from a certain timeframe in order to advance a narrative.

          • R. Kooi

            Well first we have wide temperature data from the end of the 1700s…a good scatter of records going back a couple of centuries further.

            We have Pristine Ice Core Data going back 800,000 years.

            Checking with human temperature measures and over a dozen proxy measures that This Holocene Inter glacial Warm Period PEAKED in temperatures between 6500 and 8000 years ago.

            Temps have been falling in spits and spurts since then.

            The Reason anyone remembers the Medieval Warm Period…is not because it was SO warm in Europe and the Medit. Sea…and part of the N. Atlantic….but RATHER it is remembered because it was such a welcomed relief from falling temps and cold Winters!

          • IPCC has an agenda. Models are made by input from people that want certain results. What happened to Gore’s predictions. When you start worrying about cow flatulence a reasonable person would have to question the validity of man made global warming. There are to many natural causes such as the sun. I believe in the balance of nature. Man does not have the ability to influence that balance. I like to apply logic to what I read. I did a lot of research on global warming and even attended a seminar last night and cannot be convinced that man has more influence than nature.

            Gore is not involved with the scientific community…he is a failed politician and a successful venture capitalist..and he gives a fair number of speeches…he donates the speaking fees to Global Warming Activists.

            BIG Business has the Sense to GO Dependable & CHEAPER RENEWABLE ENERGY—-
            .
            As evidence of how renewables are cheaper, take for example,
            Northern Indiana Public Service Co. Indiana is the nation’s third-largest consumer of coal,
            after Texas and Illinois, and NIPSCO got nearly all of its electricity from coal-fired plants as recently as 2010.
            .
            It’s now planning to shut down two of its three coal plants by 2028 and replace them with renewables.
            .
            “Cost-competitiveness that has been evolving in the market,
            pointing toward the need to accelerate retirement of our coal-fired electric generation and replace it with lower-cost renewable sources,” it said.
            Similarly, American Electric Power Co., one of the nation’s largest consumers of coal, told regulators it wants to build 900 MW of wind and solar generation.
            .
            “These decisions are being driven by economics, where the utility is saying renewable energy is the least-cost and less-risk option to customers,” said Ben Inskeep, an analyst at EQ Research told E&E News.
            .
            And it’s not just utilities that are getting into the game.
            Corporate purchases of renewable energy have grown around the world, reaching 7.2 gigawatts in 2018 according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

            “…The solar and wind industries are each creating permanent WELL PAYING jobs at a rate 12 times faster than that of the rest of the U.S. economy, according to a new report.
            The study, published by the (EDF) Climate Corps program, says that high paying solar and wind jobs have grown at rates of about 20% annually in recent years, and sustainability now collectively represents four to four and a half million jobs in the U.S., up from 3.4 million in 2011….”

            7 Republican Led States have 30% to 50% of the energy from RENEWABLE & DEPENDABLE SOLAR AND WIND…rave about well paying jobs & increased tax base.

            “In April, green energy provided more electricity than coal-fired power plants in the United States. Although coal will likely still dominate over renewable energy throughout the rest of this year, this situation was unthinkable only five years ago.

            The Killer Coal Monoply Sells you electricity at —5-7-9CENTS per KWH
            —-> & their price is going up, Subsidies are rising as well.

            Clean & Dependable Solar & Wind sells it at —- 2-3-4 CENTS per KWH
            —> Prices are FALLING! Subsidies are FALLING as well.

            Natural Gas, which still produces CO2 (but less)—2-4-5 CENTS per KWH
            —> Static prices but subsidies are rising.

          Human life span has doubled…which has not a damn thing to do with coal, but has everything to do with technological & scientific discoveries…yes coal largely provided electricity…long term, how ever caused as many problems as it contributed to advancement.

          Dumping Toxic Waste is the Cheapest Waste Disposal method. Every year in EACH of the nation’s CLEANEST Killer Coal ELECTRIC GENERATION plants produce

          140 million tons of HIGHLY TOXIC COAL ASH WASTE / Year ——> the toxic by-product that is left over after the coal is burned and Smoke is Scrubbed.

          .

          THE CLEANEST COAL PLANT still produces MILLIONS of Tons of TOXIC Coal Ash / year.

          .

          All that ash has to go somewhere, so it’s dumped in the backyards of power plants across the nation —into earth lined open-air ponds/pits / precarious surface-waste pools.

          1000’s of them in 47 states…91% leaching toxins into our drinking water aquifers.
          .

          Coal ash pollution/toxic waste contains high levels of toxic heavy metals such as
          arsenic,
          lead,
          selenium,
          lithium,
          other
          cancer-causing agents.
          .
          The public health hazards & environmental threats to nearby communities from unsafe coal ash dumping have been known for many DECADES, including increased risk of cancer, learning disabilities, neurological disorders, birth defects, reproductive failure,

          ((((asthma (1 million new cases/yr.) with hundreds of deaths and tens of billions of medical treatments))), and other illnesses.
          .
          Coal ash is not subject to federal supervision, and state laws governing coal combustion waste disposal are weak or nonexistent.

          PRE modern science life expectancy was well short of your statement.
          POST modern science life expectancy has been expanding, whether or not Coal or Oil or Hydro, or Nuclear were used for energy!!.

          How did coal INVENT antibiotics??
          or even the Aspirin?

          Who cares.
          He is a failed politician and a successful venture capitalists.
          Just Like Trump…except TRUMP has his frivolous transport cost paid for by the Tax Payers.

          Far more, in 2 years, that Obama’s total Transport costs in 8 years…
          AND THEN
          All of those SS agents need to stay with the President on site of his properties.

        You are already being taxed…the MOST HEAVILY SUBSIDIZED industry in the world is ENERGY= COAL and OIL !

      Unless you are a turnip,
      Kindly be advised that for millions of years, all LIFE on Planet Earth thrived on atmospheric CO2 Gas levels between 180ppm & 300ppm.
      .
      THRIVED!
      for Million years!

      …why on god’s green earth would you be advocating arguing with millions of years of SUCCESS!

      .

      HUMAN SUCCESS!

      TURNIPS SUCCESS!

      .

      Those CO2 numbers are the Goldilocks levels for all mankind !
      At those levels,
      Mankind was Created, Evolved and, according to the Biblical Imperative, became Fruitful and Multiplied.
      .
      It is a shameful expression of man’s arrogance that we are Self Righteously changing those numbers upon which our Creation & OUR Entire Physiology are based.
      .
      CO2 levels higher than any point since the evolution of humans –
      https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/13/health/carbon-dioxide-world-intl/index.html
      May 13, 2019
      – There is more CO2 in the atmosphere today than any point since well before the evolution of humans

      ————————————————————————–
      THERE ARE NO LONG TERM STUDIES INDICATING the EFFICACY OF THIS high CO2 DRUG REGIMEN!

      .

      (the dramatically increased levels of CO2 & other Atmospheric gasses)
      FOR ALL HUMAN & ANIMAL LIFE ON THIS PLANET!
      .

      .
      AND why are we talking about THOSE CHANGING Numbers?
      So that a few thousand families linked to the ownership of The Fossil Fuel related Industries can BECOME EVEN RICHER & MORE POWERFUL & MORE ARROGANT?
      How Rich and How powerful is enough for them??
      … That we should RISK our Great Grandchildren just to enable their multi-trillion dollar cash FLOW ? ?
      .
      The Deep State Fossil Fuel Industry already leads us around the world into war after war after war!
      .
      How much more power must we cede to these amazingly self-absorbed aristocrats, behind their Walled
      climate controlled enclaves ? ?

      .
      Humans have NEVER existed outside of those levels of atmospheric Gasses before. 180ppm-300ppm.
      .
      REMEMBER:
      We are not talking about JUST CO2.
      We are Talking about nearly 2 DOZEN TOXIC atmospheric gasses … Like Methane, CFCs, Oxides etc.
      Most Harmful to Human life.

      I too was a greenie back in the day! complete with muslin shirts, sandals and long hair…Then I started reading, got informed and grew up…have you ever tried to have an argument with these dingbats? They have so drunk the koolaid its dangerous!! also “Algorians” hahahaha Can I use that? it’s hilarious

  • phxflyguy
  • Ian

    Yes it is a scam I once tried to study science in this area but soon realised it was a distortion of the real truth because these ignorant stupid people in Universities who are slaves to the system and as long as they teach un truths they continue to get paid. Yes the planet is warming because the out put of the Sun has increased in the last few decades and mans miss use of nuclear power. Poor old Carbon is being blamed how stupid and dumb are people today. Carbon is the basic building block and if you remove carbon you will kill all plant life. It is all about control and they will do anything they can to keep their power. Those who have promoted Carbon as the blame should be stripped of the wealth they have created out of this scam and thrown into prison Global warming is real but it has nothing to do with the Carbon Atom

  • DrCroland

    Elmer Beauregard, when did you suddenly become smarter than 99% of scientists? I am saddened by how oblivious to the facts you are. I won’t even bother trying to argue with you because there’s nothing to work with upstairs. Listen pal, why don’t you do something useful, go back to the trailer park and finish hanging up your old underwear with the holes in em. Maybe someday you might be able to buy a few new pairs.

  • Apostaste

    This is fucking retarded.

  • Don Abbott

    Brian cox climate change non fiction story teller. malcolm roberts knows The climate change scam has to be stopped, the charlatans behind the scam need to be exposed, sued and some of them sent to gaol, Australia finally has a Senator who calls the climate change as the scam that it is, meet Malcolm Roberts the One Nation Senator destined to be the media’s new public enemy number one. THE REASON THE MEDIA DONT LIKE GREAT AUSTRALIAN HONEST PEOPLE SUCH AS MALCOLM ROBERTS IS SIMPLE !!! THEY CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH !!! the greens party are a horror story gone wrong as there disgraceful votes they received have shown.they are an artificial false political party with no concept on what the australian public really need. AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THERE BLATANT LIES THE PEOPLE CAN SEE STRAIGHT THROUGH THE UTTER RUBBISH THAT FLOWS OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS ON A CONSTANT BASIS. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TRUTH AND A LIE TO THE GREENS IS A BELIEVER AND THE FACTS ARE THERE IS NONE OF THEM LEFT. With malcolm roberts an expert on these topics the greens can’t get away with their usual NON FICTION FANTASY POLITICS AND CONTINUE MISLEADING THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE. something they can’t handle and are not used to. THERE GREENS DAYS ARE NUMBERED MALCOLM TURNBALL has no clue on what is needed to be PM of the people of Australia. He is deaf to the concerns of the hard working Australian families.
    We miss the man that put Australia first before his ego.
    PM Tony Abbott had his feet on the ground and lead by example not arrogance. Turnbull does not speak for Australia, No one wants him as our PM. He is a useless, traitorous, self serving person who does not care about Australians. Its like having Rudd still in government. the only reason he wants to be PM to big note himself on the world stage , not too different from Rudd really both complete dud useless leaders. Not many nails left Malcolm, for you, and the Liberal Party’s coffin lid. THE LIBERAL PARTY HAVE DESTROYED THEMSELVES WITH THIS MUPPET

  • Junior van Rooij

    so unfounded…people like you mess up this world…there are more countries in the world than just the USA you know, countries where they actually DO notice extreme weather conditions and draught.. you think the exponential growth of world population will never get to the point where demand is just too high, and supply is just to damn low? This will lead to conflicts, with 100% certainty…If you find out in 10 years you’re too late…and why would you, who has probably mostly seen luxury destinations, resorts, hotels etc. not believe someone who travelled the world to actively document climate change (Leonardo Di Caprio, for example). And you just come with unfounded arguments –>99% of Scientists don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming??!! you mean of the three scientists you spoke to..

  • Diane Hovinga

    Will say in advance, pardon my spelling if it is wrong! The year Mt. Pinatobo blew it’s stack it belched out more green houses gases into the atmosphere in 24 hours than all of mankind had since the beginning of the Industrial Age! The earth actually cooled down for awhile after that eruption! I’ve heard that a lot of the thermometers are placed on airport tarmacs, near the exhaust fans of air conditioners or in the sun so they will show wildly higher temperatures than the ambien air actually is! As for climate change…what’s that? The climate is always changing and goes through cycles which go back thousands not tens of years!

  • Steve Shepard

    Every windmill and solar panel you see was put there by people who believe that the CO2 emitted by power plants controls the earth’s weather. …and therefore every closed plant represents a change in our climate. …every supporter of such nonsense is a climate imbecile.
