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.

  • Greg

    I will tell you this. My father has been a climatologist for 45 years. He is considered one of the nations leading; however, he was let go from his government job 7 years ago. WHy? Because he was being paid to find a desired result that just wasn’t there. They use real facts to make it look tangible, and provide you with real models. The only problem is, the facts don’t support the overall theory – at all. In fact, the climate is doing now what it has done for thousands of years. Remember when people used to migrate? The climate does change, but there is a trade off.. One area may become cooler while another one becomes warmer. If humans could actually contribute to global warming, our amount when compared to nature’s amount is less than a drop in a swimming pool. Big politicians invest in solar companies, and wind companies, then they sell you on the “fact” of global warming. All the sudden the solar industries stocks are going while, and corrupt politicians are cashing in. They do this with everything. Open your eyes. My whole family is full of environmentalist, there is no reason that we would turn a blind eye to “global Warming” if it actually existed.

  • I’m not a scientist, I don’t have a Ph.D and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night but in my mind the climate IS changing, it’s called SEASONS…

  • phandoms 2713

    Are you kidding right now? So what if 2014 wasn’t the “warmest year” because 2016 sure is. I live in Colorado which is supposed to get all 4 seasons. Well we don’t seem to be getting winter or spring. (It snows in winter and It rains in spring if you don’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t since you believe what this article says.) Last year we would have had a snow day already, this year it’s only snowed twice and it melts by the next day. I literally woke up last night because my nose hurt from bleeding because it was so dry. Keep in mind, I have never had a bloody nose before. It has actually been dryer than EVER! And have you seen all the flooding and hurricanes. Yeah, more than ever. Which oh ya, sea levels rise. Just from my everyday life I have experienced global warming FIRST HAND. So if you don’t want to look at the obvious facts than fine. Dont. Hopefully your children and grandchildren don’t have to suffer from your mess.

  • TheFakeIsReal

    The first link: “record sea ice in Antarctica” in reason #1. If you only read the headline you might think that Nasa is saying we have more ice. But if you watch the video right below it or read the article it clearly says that : the Arctic has lost an average of 20,800 square miles (53,900 square kilometers) of ice a year: the Antarctic has gained an average of 7,300 square miles (18,900 sq km). Thats a negative slope of 2.84 miles^2 each year.

    It makes me sad that Nasa would be so careless to title any article in this way knowing that many people don’t bother to read the article which allows them to draw erroneous conclusions.

  • TheFakeIsReal
  • Kim Bruce

    The science of global warming is so flawed…It is impossible to predict weather using models. Weather is predicted using models…how is that working out? Duh!

  • The one that is correct

    Welp this is just dead wrong

    Comeback arguments based on reason number:

    1) Uh no look at graphs plus that was almost 3 years ago
    http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/
    2) Cherrypicking data and its also almost 3 years old
    http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/
    3) Still Cherrypicking data and its also almost 3 years old
    (notice recent years don’t support their model so they ignore it – (cherrypicking data))
    4) Yea but they’re rising – the human race hasn’t see anything like this while we’re taking data – the people modeling this is doing the best they can
    5) Well that’s just a bad fact – and there’s also POLAR BEAR CONSERVATION EFFORTS MORONS
    6) Yea still conservation efforts
    7) Well that’s just dead wrong – should I find links to studies that say the opposite? Okay:
    http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-scientific-consensus-intermediate.htm
    http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/
    —Also if you want to argue that it says “catastrophic” – that also says that scientists believe in global warming and the word “catastrophic” is relative – that means this point is completely subjective to whatever – it just says that 3% believes in catastrophic change – and i said above that “catastrophic” is relative
    8) https://www.skepticalscience.com/human-co2-smaller-than-natural-emissions.htm – you can say it produces more but it absorbs the co2 back through photosynthesis – our industrial system doesn’t reclaim the co2 it produces so it results in a buildup in co2
    9) http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/ – look at the graph
    10) I mean kind of but how do they profit?

    If you don’t believe anything about this its okay – we’re all gonna eat it in about 20 years anyway – you can’t deny the truth. I invite you to argue but time will prove me correct

  • Blair Simpkins

    From the laws of thermodynamics it does not pass the smell test. The total mass of the atmosphere is 5×10^18 kg, so it would take 6×10^J to rise 1C. I find it impossible to believe that a 30% increase in CO2, of a gas that makes up on 13% of air, can cause that much energy to be emitted into the entire mass of air.

    • Actually CO2 only make up .04% of the atmosphere.

      • Blair Simpkins

        Sorry, I meant to say only 13% of green house gas. Water vapor makes up about 87%. The heating is most likely coming from the oceans which is a giant heat pump/sink.

  • Arsenio Band Ramirez

    Hottest temperature on Earth was 3,600° Fahrenheit, 800 million years ago during the period known as the Neoproterozoic. Now I’m laying in bed in my Pearl City home and the temperature is 71 degrees, and when I go to my Aiea home again it’s 71 degrees. There’s always been Climate Change since 4.5 Billion years ago and Earth has the abilities to regulate it self…

  • Jesus Nervous

    Climate change is corprate hoax.

  • Skas

    So you are saying we should not believe in scientists but we should believe you? Hahahaha

  • Knight Tyme

    Let’s, for a moment, accept that all of the previous cycles of the earth get warmer and cooler (before man kind built it’s 1st factory) can’t be factored into the discussion.
    Let’s assume, for the same moment or two, that CO2 is the sole reason for all of the planet’s temperature woes.
    Let’s assume, for the same (now cramped) couple of moments, that it matters not, that the argument keeps switching from warming to cooling, from melting to freezing from flooding to drought from crops failing to overgrowth.

    Finally let’s, for this now completely full couple of moments, accept that it matters not that the majority of the data collected was not designed to prove an agenda instead it’s an attempt to seek the truth.

    That all said and done…
    How does:
    a Carbon Tax help?
    a tax burden on the nations that could most solve the problem, help solve the problem?
    a tax exchange that enriches other countries that will, over time, turn into a industrious one (China) help?
    a tax that enriches a select few that control the exchange by take their sliver of the pie, help?
    Wouldn’t it seem much more logical to either give incentives to companies to develop alterative?
    If you used a tax, shouldn’t that tax go directly to that country’s alterative energy program designed to be later sold or even shared with the planet?

    Theses questions are intended to reveal the real agenda. The redistribution of wealth on a global scale while making multi-billionaires of an elite few. All the while suffering the average worker. Simply wake up and yes, follow the money.

    Science be damned.

  • MD9494

    1. The very first article reads “Studies show that globally, the decreases in Arctic sea ice far exceed the increases in Antarctic sea ice.”

    2. 2nd article reads “However, the amount of snow does not necessarily correlate with temperature. It simply needs to be near or below freezing for snow to fall. Temperatures that average 1-2 degrees F above normal over the globe can still support snow in many places. Furthermore, slightly warmer than normal temperatures increase atmospheric moisture content, elevating potential snow amounts where they occur.”

    3. again, read the actual article.

    4. again, read the actual article…..

    5./6. Polar bear populations have been in decline over the last 50 years, and what is this about Moose populations?

    7. this petition has long proved to be a hoax

    8.True, nature does produce much more CO2 – but according to every single figure and piece of data, notably looking at this figure here http://www.justfacts.com/images/globalwarming/ipcc_2001.png it is very clear that human impact is significant and accounts somewhere between 10-30% of CO2 emissions

    9. You are looking at one year, seriously? These trends are over decades and hundreds of years; due to earth’s rotation around the sun and other phenomena, temperature varies naturally on 1-2 year cycles.

    Okay here’s what I will say: Anybody reading The New York Times, watching too much mainstream news or posting “Now This” bullshit is probably just as ignorant of actual scientific data as “deniers.” Global Warming was manufactured by the media, and is grossly misunderstood by liberals and conservatives alike. There is a lot of money being thrown around and a lot of politics involved; I actually applaud those who choose to challenge the mainstream ideas of Climate Change; true science is skepticism.

    However, Global Climate Change has reached a scientific consensus, and it takes all of 5 minutes before debunking any article that claims to suggest otherwise.

    Remember that science is a process, and through this process, the only truth we have found is that we are always wrong about something. To inappropriately (yet metaphorically) apply, Heisenberg’s principle, one cannot observe without affecting the results.

    Some liberals listen too 🙂 just make sure you “climate deniers” give the same level of scrutiny to your articles as you do to ours

    I agree with you Elmer, l do the same as you and ran across an article by Nobel Laureate and there is countless others, but what l mean to say we have really been duped, great article by the way.

  • Dee Oldguy

    Those studying volcanoes have proven the more co2 and other gases are released into the atmosphere in one eruption than all man made gases combined, and there is at least one erupts every year. Also, we are producing more plant based foods than ever, using up vast qua ties of co2.

  • Chaz Bono

    the hottest day in US history was 100 years ago in Death Valley, the temperature there has never risen any higher over that 100 years in between etc, hoax.

  • Ross Lischka

    cellulose is the what a plant produces during the process of biosynthesis. Cellulose is what plants use to grow there stalks, and produce their vascular tissue. Biosynthesis uses, get this @85vintage:disqus , leftover carbon dioxide from the processes of photosynthesis, and cellular respiration. So actual, a plant literally uses carbon dioxide to CREATE ITSELF. So can you explain how plants use hardly any CO2 in there lives?

  • banzomaikaka

    climate change is real. scientists agree on that. What some scientists believe is that it’s not human caused. There’s compelling ‘evidence’ for the argument that it’s human caused. there’s also ‘evidence’ that human activity has nothing to do with it. However, if you look closely, you’ll see that the evidence for the latter argument comes in one way or the other from people invested in the exact activities pointed to as being the main culprits of climate change – people who can fabricate as many believable evidence as they can – and if you believe they wouldn’t do this, then, well, there’s not a lot of hope in convincing you.

  • Povel Vieregg

    Say I am open about the possibility of the theory of man made climate change being wrong. What I still have not understood is how could a global conspiracy like this ever happen. All major climate research organizations are behind this theory and so is most published peer reviewed papers in the field. Not just from organizations and people in the US but across the whole world. How did all these scientists and politicians all over the world get together and conspire to fool the public about this?

  • Subtle3ntropy

    Think of it this way. If oceans are hotter, it will produce more violent storms. More moisture in the air means hotter temperatures. More hurricanes and stronger snow storms.
    When it’s cold, it’ll be colder and when it’s hot, it’ll be hotter. In the end, the surface of the planet will be covered by storms.

    Record cold will be accompanied by record hot. When the rate of temperature change out pace evolution, wildlife will die out without human intervention.

    Record snowfall is to be expected, so does record melting of ice caps. They are not mutually exclusive.

    Endangered animals thriving is not proof that climate change isn’t real, for climate change isn’t the only factor. Reduce hunting, adapting, change in location can all contribute to population growth.

    Awareness =/= knowledge.

  • Sane Person

    As we’ve only been on the planet a couple thousand years, it’s impossible to say what is man caused and what is naturally caused. It’s all in God’s hands anyway, so worrying is needless. The devil has many fools fooled and in a panic.
    Liberalism…is cancer.

    Also, please BUY STOCK IN OIL COMPANIES. As others divest, you will be able to buy low. Show us how that works out and see if you prove us wrong.

    Also, please APPLY FOR JOBS AT OIL COMPANIES. As others shy away, there should be many more openings. Show us how that works out long-term.

    What is wrong with warm is good and CO2 is good. Cold has caused more deaths that warmth and CO2 is necessary for plant life.

  • ATR

    although i believe in Limited global warming i believe it is not going as fast as to wipe out life in a couple hundred years taxing the people for outputting CO2 is not the way trees help clear the air and we cut them down why not put some taxes on wood instead

  • Botiemaster

    You’re an idiot if you can’t see that liberals are pillaging your wallet and tax dollars, whether you’re too dumb to see it or you see it but allow it to happen because it’s another thing for you to use to argue about. Much like the theory of evolution, you need alot more than feels to turn that theory into fact. Here’s a hint: Just like evolution, global warming will forever remain a theory. You spend decades looking for that missing link. “I KNOW FOR A FACT my theory is true without a shred of evidence to prove me right. I just need to find that one piece of evidence that will rewrite the books!” It never comes around. 50 years after every single one of you idiots are dead and gone, people will still be in your place arguing how real global warming is, and not a damn thing in the world will have changed to either prove or disprove them. The only difference between evolution and global warming is one of these things are a hoax to make money off gullible liberals.

    It’s a hoax to milk dollar signs out of people. Face it, you’ve been had. But keep preaching how “it’s basically a fact” and I’ll keep driving my gas guzzler. I bet you do, too. “ooooooh maaaaaaaaan I need my car I mean I’ll sit here and debate global warming with these idiot non believers but at the end of the day me not using my car won’t save the earth sooooooooooo……”

    Fucking liberals.

  • Brianna Dufrene

    I strongly believe that climate change is a serious issue and something needs to be done about it now to make the world a better place for our future generations.

  • Al Gore made the case that there is a correspondence between global warming and an increased percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere. That’s true, but CO2 is the effect of global warming, not the cause. The increase in CO2 is the result of the oceans’, as they get warmer, losing some of their ability to dissolve CO2. “Man-made global warming” is all a big, big hoax! It’s an underhanded money/power grab. Environmentalists would have more effect in the long run if they would simply be honest instead of lying in order to get taxpayer dollars! Now their reputation is down the tubes. Who is going to take anything they say seriously?

        If the writer can not grasp concepts taught in 6th grade English, the ability to understand one of the most complex sciences in the modern field is questionable. If you would like quick rebuttal to this article they are guilty of several “logical fallacies” which are taught in 11th Grade English. I would explain which but perhaps you’ll take the time to educate yourself about them if but to only argue with me. I’d like to make the final point that I’m not engaging in the climate change discussion, rather the common sense involved in who you get your information from. Authors who’s main job is to write that don’t understand how to write is like trusting your car to a mechanic that doesn’t understand how an internal combustion engine works. Personally I’d make sure my mechanic is certified.

            TRUMP, of course,

            has now admitted he is NOT a real Republican but rather a NATIONALIST.

            With that, the Bombs (12 as of a minute ago) and the Immigrant Caravan and TRUMP’S dialing up the rhetoric by sending a 1000 US Regular Army to the border
            ….which, by the way, can’t do a damn thing…can’t arrest, hold, shoot etc.

            After a huge modernization and increase to the military under OBAMA….TRUMP had to increase the military even more.
            ….
            Never mind that we spend MORE than the next 8 military Powers on Earth…and most of them are our allies (or at least they were before Trump).

            “…The key factors used by Benito Mussolini to gain the trust of the Italian people were militarism and nationalism. Nationalism is devotion and patriotism to your country with constant glorification and promotion of the country’s values and culture.

            … Mussolini used nationalism to promote the growth and need of militarism in Italy along with Italian Strength.

            ALL Hail El Duche’ Trump!….right around the corner!

            AUH2O forever
            Never that SWAMP THING you put into the White House along with that invasion of Swamp Flies to Pilfer and Pollute the Halls of Government!

            Throughout the Obama reign, many manufacturers closed, shut down forever, never to be heard from again. How do I know this? I saw it, was a part of it.
            Restaurants closed by the tens of thousands. Why? People had no jobs and thus no money to spend. Kmart basically folded, retail sales sucked. Jobs, lost by the millions, wages of those jobs left stagnant. Unemployment Benefits extended three times by Congress (They don’t do that if jobs are available). Obama had an opportunity to work for the people. Instead he spent the majority of his efforts in apologizing to foreign countries because America is who she is… The greatest country this Planet has ever seen or will see. Obama blew it, taxed it, benefited personally from it and walked away a millionaire while the “Little People” were trying just to buy groceries and pay the necessities to survive. That is what the Progressive, Liberal Democrats are about… themselves and every one else must bow down or pay a penalty (ObamaCare).
            I personally have checked into it and for me and my wife alone, premiums are 850 to 1250 per month with a 12,500 deductible plus copays (My most recent check was within the last two weeks) That is over 50% of my income before taxes for premiums and deductibles alone. Who, can afford such? Now I pay a penalty of approximately 1200 per year for not being able to purchase the brand of Hot Dogs Obama and the Dems mandated me to purchase. The penalty is far better… I pay out approximately 2500 to 3000 per year for doctors and meds for my diabetic wife and myself. I am far better off without his mandates as millions of others are. Not to mention the blatant lies told to promote it by him personally.
            I personally do not care what your statistics say. They mean nothing to me or 10s of millions of others because we live it daily. We have our own set of tried and proven stats, which are believable.

            I and my family DO NOT DEPEND ON GOVERNMENT TO SURVIVE. We are independent, working people who make our own. Why, please tell me why would I, or anyone else in this country, accept such subsidies when at the end of the year they are taxed as income and all the while you or I, at least, are still expending over 30% of income for the Brand of Hot Dogs the government says I must purchase?
            For most Americans that large of a liability coupled with the rest of their survival liabilities outs them in the position with the Banking industry where they will never qualify for a mortgage. In other words they can never own a home, never… well unless it is inherited and then pulling a mortgage to pay insurance premiums, then losing it because the subsidies were taken away because they own property.

            the standing up of a commercial space industry
            that has ended the government’s monopoly on space.

            When the space shuttle was retired in 2011,
            NASA looked to the commercial sector to fly its
            astronauts and cargo to the International Space Station,
            fertilizing the industry with billions of dollars in contracts.
            And in the past few years, the industry has begun to blossom,
            reinvigorating interest in space with
            dramatic landings of rockets on ships with other, unprecedented feats.

            “Just five years ago, U.S. companies were shut out
            of the global commercial launch market,”
            Obama wrote. “Today, thanks to groundwork laid by the men and women of NASA,
            they own more than a third of it. More than 1,000 companies
            across nearly all 50 states are working on private space initiatives.”

            Obama summarily destroyed the societies in Lybia and Syria advocating for civil war and giving arms to “moderate” opposition groups. Leading to the deaths of 100,000s of people. Those arms somehow ended up in the hands Of Isil/Isis.

            Obama’s economy only started to improve once the sequester of 2013 took hold. The immediate response by the market was a down turn, but that was fueled by doomsayers like Paul Krugman. Once reality kicked in unemployment came down and the market started to stabilize and go up. Trumps tax cut and deregulation has improved the economy further.

            In 2016, they passed 6.5 % of World GDP!

            That is many TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

            …i can hear it in my minds eye when the Democrats wage 70-90% tax on “the wealthy” and you discover you’re bringing home 10 bucks if the 100 you earned. Oh the screaming, wailing and gnashing of teeth there will be because they lied and sucked you in. Don’t forget to let them know you prefer 30 grit over Charmin to wipe your posterior.

            GW BUSH GREW government at a rate of 8.7% per year for 8 years and MORE THAN DOUBLED US DEBT !
            or
            OBAMA GREW government at a rate of just 3.3% per year for 8 years and MORE THAN DOUBLED US DEBT!
            ——–
            And by the end of his term, he had cut those annual deficits 70% and recovered from the Great Republican Depression/Recession to a BOOMING ECONOMY !
            ——–
            Annual Deficits were cut by 70% since 2007!
            Obama’s last annual deficit was $438 billion!
            Trump’s 2017annual deficit was $666 billion..50% increase
            Trump’s 2018annual deficit was $879 billion..up again!
            Trump’s 2019annual deficit is over $1 Trillion.

            I AM THE ONLY ONE ” Trump…gave us the largest TRADE DEFICIT IN HUMAN HISTORY JUST LAST YEAR!

            Here’s a youtube link to your gay friend Barney Frank regarding the Housing Bubble that relaxed lending standards created. You can also find video of John McCain (a RINO) arguing with him that a bubble was going to burst, but bend over Barney would have none of it. Demonrats, starting under disgraced libtard William Jefferson Clinton are what pushed lowering lending standards. Obama created $10 Trillion out of thin air to bail everyone out. That’s not capitalism, that’s goverment picking winners and losers. But you won’t get it, you’re a brainwashed marxist like they are.

            that has ended the government’s monopoly on space.

            I am an employer, business was so bad, almost nonexistent for our market segment, almost had to close the doors. Far more of our customers, restaurant and hospitality industry, struggling and going out of business.

            You can look at government produced numbers all you want. But all of us in my company have lived the reality of it and the current admin is far better for business and success that the Marxist, Socialist Democrats have ever been in my adult life.

            Just lime the hysteria of “income inequality”, the Global Warming/Cooling/change or whatever the new hot button is today, is nothing but a means for those like Big Al and the Marist left to control and become the top .25% of the wealthiest of the wealthy by imposing laws and mandates that they will never be required to follow, just like ObamaCare, Social Security, etc..

            Glad you could retire and enjoy a little of life. My hope in about 9 or 10 years…

            I am very well aware of the privatization of racketeering. However, remember that our own government was relying on foreign governments, some not so friendly, for space work prior.

            I think it ironic that you lay blame on a specific party for the last recession. It is the fault of both major parties. The only organization to blame is Congress, both houses. They are too worried about their own individual self preservation. They are only for the people during campaign time and one elected or reelected they begin jockeying immediately for the next election.
            Private and small business owners are what makes us great. Yes, Congress recognizes that but only when they have spent all in the kitty and want more. Enough is enough.

            “This the biggest tax cut in U.S. history”(Evan Vucci/AP)

            THE SWAMP Trump began making this claim when the shape of the GOP tax legislation was still rather unclear.

            1.
            In point of fact Reagan’s cut was bigger.
            2.
            Obama had 2 TWO TAX CUTS that were EACH bigger.
            ********************
            Trump also claimed that the tax bill would “cost me a fortune” — when, in fact,…probably would save him millions of dollars.
            *******************
            “The tax bill will pay for itself”

            Days after this statement,
            Trump was speaking to a mega Rich crowd that paid $200,000 each for the right to attend Mar-a-Lago,

            … “YOU ALL JUST GOT A LOT RICHER”
            . Needless to say, he got a standing Ovation.

            (Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg News)
            .
            Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin repeatedly claimed
            that the tax cut would pay for itself
            — and then some.
            At one point,
            he even asserted that the $1.5 trillion plan
            “will cut down the deficits by a trillion dollars.”

            On debt. Chuck and Nancy were giddy to present Trump that enormous budget proposal. They contributed to its size and scope. In no way can it all be attributed to Trump.

            And on the 2009 budget Chuck and Nancy didnt sign Bush’s 3.1 Trillion budget proposal. They held it up and Obama added $500 billion to it and signed in 2009. Then all the leftist outlets now claim it was part f Bush’s debt. That $500 billion was a 17.9% increase compared to Bush’s budget proposal.

            Trump is reaping the deficits and debt that Obama set up from his own policies and laws pushed through. Obama’s design was to make it through his time in office and let future administrations deal with his carnage. He well knew the people had had more than enough of the socialist progressive agenda and would not put another socialist in the White House. Trump is simply reaping what Obama had intentionally sewn.
            Had by some absolute miracle a progressive would have been elected, those numbers you cite as being a Trump debacle would be much higher and our country would be in a depression similar to that of Venezuela today.

            Like I said. These are a direct result of Obama pushing out the debt and deficits he created so as to cruise through his time and set future administrations up with his debt and deficits.
            The excellent Trump economy is in no way affiliated with Obama. Trump has been hit from every direction with bad policy and sink holes Obama left behind and has still managed to grow the economy far more than any progressive socialist can imagine.

          • R. Kooi

            THAT IS THOSE BAILOUTS/SUPPORTS CREATED UNDER BUSH and the Additional BAILOUT and TAX REDUCTIONS (2 of them, larger than TRUMP’S) under OBAMA.

            NO EVIDENCE of Russians & TRUMP
            If there are accusations of Trump colluding with the Russians, why is it that by now not a shred of evidence has been shown?

            Greg Larson, I read the news and think about what I learn.

            If you think that not one shred of evidence has been shown, then either you have been paying no attention, or you don’t understand the meaning of the word ‘evidence’.

            Evidence is any observation, object, or fact which would tend to persuade somebody of something.

            I considered then candidate Trump’s elevation of Paul Manafort from Allie, advisor, campaigner to campaign manager(5 months) to be pretty strong evidence that he was beholden to the Russians. There was literally no other reason to put Manafort in charge.

            Candidate/ President Trump’s refusal to criticize anything that Vladimir Putin said or did,
            especially in the context of his tendency to criticize absolutely everybody else, was also evidence.

            His naming of General Flynn as National Security Adviser was another piece of evidence. Jumping out of order, the later revelation that Flynn was texting to his Russian buddies, actually during the inauguration, that the project they were putting together, which had been illegal due to sanctions, was now good to go, made perfectly clear that Flynn was working with Russians. And if you believe that President Trump would allow a subordinate to profit, while he did not, you have the wrong guy.

            We all learned of the Trump Tower meeting with Veselnitskaya, at about the same time that we learned that President Trump composed the first excuse memo, which was a transparent lie. But the lie he told, that the meeting had been about lifting the ban on adoption of Russian infants, was so well attuned to the actual substance, which was the sanctions imposed by the Magnitsky act and Russia’s banning of the American adoption of Russian infants, that he clearly had been aware of the meeting all along.

            Side note: When Jr testified before Nunes’ committee about the meeting, they knew from his cell phone records that he had placed a call immediately after the meeting was over. The Republican majority on that committee accepted his claim that he did not remember who he called or why. They did not subpoena the records of the called phone to see who owned it. I view the call as evidence that Sr was involved and read in, and I view Nunes’ refusal to find out who the call went to as evidence that Nunes was complicit in the obstruction of justice as well.

            The day that then candidate Trump asked Russia to “find” Hillary’s missing emails, Russian hackers changed their targets, and started trying to hack the email accounts of her likely correspondents. That is evidence of either a conspiracy or a startling coincidence. The day that the “Grab them by the pussy” tape was published, so were the first of those stolen emails, knocking the tape off the front page. Evidence of either conspiracy or coincidence.

            President Trump’s meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak without any American press or American aides present is evidence. His revealing codeword intel to them is evidence. His later meeting with Russian President Putin without any American scribes, translator, Intelligence officers, or other aides present is evidence.

            The fact that both Jr and Eric claimed that the Trump Organization was getting lots of its financing from Russia after the latest rounds of bankruptcies is evidence, at least of the fact that the Trump Organization owed money to oligarchs.

            The records of the startling profit that Donald Trump made in selling a house to oligarch Rybolovlev are evidence that Trump has been helping Russians launder money.
            So are many of the purchases of apartments in Trump Towers.

            You may claim that all of the bits of evidence I have named, and others besides, are not convincing, or that they have innocent explanations. I think that is naive. But to claim they don’t exist is insulting.

            Edit:
            Of course, it is likely that Special Counsel Mueller has accumulated additional evidence which he may share with us when it is legally appropriate. The answer to one interpretation of the question is that he is very careful not to allow leaks from his investigation. I have chosen to address this question only in terms of what evidence is already widely available.

            Q:
            If there are accusations of Trump colluding with the Russians,
            why is it that by now not a shred of evidence has been shown?

Why are any of those 4, not to mention their many other affiliates, still walking around the streets and allowed to be involved in anything besides cell block roll call???
            This is the joke, this is the story with all of the actual hard evidence and proof that any fresh, green attorney could prosecute with 100% conviction. Much like buying a prostitute… she’s a sure thing. Yet nothing, absolutely nothing done about their lies, deceit, and personal gain to and at the cost of the American people. If ever was a case for treason and collusion, this is it.

            General Michael Flynn
            broke many United States LAWS and Virginia State Laws.
            Congress had barely begun its first, very reluctant investigation,
            & had already come to that conclusion.

            General Flynn was breaking the law on the payroll of a SANCTIONED ENEMY STATE
            of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA
            as a
            Campaigner/advisor for TRUMP, as a foreign policy advisor for TRUMP, as
            National Security Advisor, a damned important position with an office right next to the president in the white house..
            AT THE Innauguration, FLYNN was finalizing an agreement for a TRUMP HOTEL IN MOSCOW….
            Remember TRUMPS CLAIMS he had no deals, no financial arrangmentes, no nothing with RUSSIA?????

            **
            Hillary Clinton

            **
            Michael Flynn
            Directly acted-on-behalf of a foreign nation, with a history of hostility toward the United States, & accepted a great deal of money in payment for that service.
            .
            It was definitively illegal, & comes very, very close to the definition of treason.
            **
            Gen. Michael Flynn’s
            transgressions were more than 1000% worse than whatever you think Hillary did !

            and
            he was back campaigning for Republicans last week.

            Now,
            What is the motivation FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP to hire General FYNN, who PUBLICLY advocated
            a CHRISTIAN CRUSADE against the “FAKE” Muslim Religion
            ALL the while tens of thousands of US Soldiers and
            thousands more US civilians were sitting-ducks in the
            MIDDLE of 1.6 BILLION MUSLIMS (Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan etc.)
            .
            Perhaps
            it is the same motivation that led the president to forward totally unverified
            anti MUSLIM videos:

            DONALD J. TRUMP has shared a series of anti-Muslim tweets from RABID far-right extremist group Britain First, sparking condemnation for spreading its “deplorable” ideology to a global audience.

            The first video, originally shared by deputy leader Jayda Fransen’s account, claimed to show “Muslim migrants beating up a Dutch boy on crutches”.

            A second re-post was captioned “Muslim destroys statue of Virgin Mary”, while a third read “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death”.

            between Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian operatives…
            .
            …one of the figures at the center of those investigations is
            Michael Flynn.”
            .
            “…Flynn was the national security adviser under Trump
            until he resigned in disgrace after lying to Vice President Mike Pence
            and others about his post-election conversations
            with a Russian ambassador. ”
            .
            “But there are still questions about Flynn’s conduct
            and why the White House didn’t fire him immediately …”
            .
            “…”The White House was already covering up for Michael Flynn
            by refusing to provide a single document to Congress.”
            .
            “…(2016 a campaigner/advisor for Trump)That July, he took the podium
            at an event put on by ACT for America, which the Southern Poverty Law Center
            describes as “far and away the largest grassroots
            anti-Muslim group in America.”

            At that time, the Turkish military was attempting a coup against
            Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan;
            Flynn told the crowd the coup was a good thing because Turkey was moving
            “towards Islamism.” The following month, according to the New York Times,
            a business linked to the Turkish government gave Flynn’s lobbying firm
            a contract eventually worth $530,000….”
            .
            “…According to former CIA director James Woolsey, while working as an
            unpaid adviser/cmapaigner for Trump’s campaign, Flynn took a meeting with
            Turkish government officials in September 2016 in his capacity as a consultant.
            The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Fethullah Gulen,
            an Erdogan opponent living in the US; Flynn had denounced Gulen in his Hill op-ed,
            and Erdogan blamed Gulen for the attempted coup.

            Woolsey told CNN that there was talk of getting Gulen into Turkish hands
            somehow at this meeting—which sounds vaguely like kidnapping—but Flynn denies this.”
            .
            “…2016: He was allegedly an unregistered foreign agent

            The 1938 law requires Americans who do lobbying work for foreign governments
            to register with the Justice Department.

            Flynn’s Turkey-related activities may have fallen under that category,
            but even though the contract his firm signed ended in November,
            he didn’t fill out the necessary paperwork until after he was out of the administration.
            Being an unregistered foreign agent—admittedly a phrase that sounds more ominous
            than it is, —is a felony, though it’s rarely prosecuted.

            Flynn also failed to disclose the payment he got for the 2015 RT event. ”
            .
            “… But in December, during the transition between Obama and Trump,
            Flynn spoke to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and reportedly
            talked about the sanctions Obama had imposed on Russia in retaliation
            for interfering in the 2016 election.

            An obscure law called the Logan Act forbids private citizens
            from conducting diplomacy…”
            .
            “…Flynn went on to apparently mislead Vice President Pence
            about that conversation, and in January,
            Pence denied on TV that Flynn and Kislyak had talked about sanctions.
            Sally Yates, then the acting attorney general, WARNED the White House
            that Flynn had in fact spoken about sanctions, (YATES was fired for the warning)
            but it wasn’t until 18 days after her warning that the
            national security adviser was asked to step down—tellingly,
            after the Washington Post published a story about the incident.
            (This Tuesday, reporters asked White House press secretary Sean Spicer
            why the White House waited those 18 days, but Spicer wouldn’t answer.)”
            .
            “…He may still be concealing some information about his finances

            The investigation into Flynn is far from over:
            According to an Associated Press report out this week,
            Flynn and his former Turkish client dispute whether two $40,000 payments
            were for lobbying or not, raising yet more questions about his dealings.
            And whoever the next head of the FBI is, there will be lots of people working
            on finding out answers to those questions….”
            .
            Unaccounted for funds have reached $200,000 from RUSSIAN BUSINESS INTERESTS (FSB/KGB)
            and $600,000 from TURKISH Business Interests (Married to FSB/KGB).

This published margin is actually 900 times greater that nothing has happened than the touted numbers that have been “Cherry Picked” from the same report.

          This month President Trump mocked a sexual assault survivor, called a woman he allegedly slept with and paid to keep silent “Horseface,” labeled the Federal Reserve “loco,” and applauded a US congressman who body-slammed a reporter for asking him a question.

          This
          isn’t even his most dangerous language.

          That’s

          being reserved for Democrats, who are being subjected to some of the most disturbing and incendiary language used in recent memory by a president to describe his political opponents.

          “The Democrats,” says Trump, are “arsonists” who “have become too extreme and too dangerous to govern.”

          • boldaq

            “sexual assault survivor” = A lying prostitute.

            “body slammed a reporter” = Gave a lying hack what he deserved.

            I spoke with a gentleman today, a former Yukranian. He is now an American citizen (done things the right way). He declares himself a Democrat. However, he understands, first hand, what Trump is trying to do and boldly disagrees with the Democrats. I asked why? He said; “America Is the next step from heaven” to him because he has lived and experienced “Russia” and Europe and the Democrats are working to change America to those systems that are failing and turn the people to mere subjects to a few powerful. He stated he will vote for Trump again and try his best to help keep America free.

            That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and

            That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, “falling in love” with the dictator of North Korea, and
            you have said, “That’s statesmanship!”
            18.
            That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption
            and
            low moral character

      Honey, you need to learn how to use grammar. It just proves how uneducated you are. If you want to make a credible argument, you should go back and edit all those run-on sentences you have. :). I’m a southern hometown guy, but I don’t think you should be complaining about run-on sentences. I don’t even know what side you are on. Just correct people correctly. For your sake, I hope I am wrong.

      If all you listen to is mainstream news, you won’t know this :

      Global warming is the biggest scam in history. It’s been proven that global warming doesn’t exist so politicians changed the name to “climate change” so they can keep pushing for unneeded regulations.

      The global warming scam is not about the environment. They don’t give a damn about the environment. It’s a job killing scam. It’s all about contriving an (environmental) excuse to increase regulation in order to shackle the successful and advance socialism and communism on both a national and international scale – transferring wealth from wealthier & capitalist nations to poorer and communist ones.

      It’s also about creating fake global catastrophes.
      The purpose of this is to take our focus off our individual choices and nations and turn it towards the globe.
      This is supposed to make you care less if the United States is destroyed – since it’s a world-wide GLOBAL warming.
      It’s supposed to make you care less if Israel disappears since It’s a world-wide GLOBAL warming.
      The hidden goal is to lead to a one world government with open borders.

      There were 2 major scams.
      The first one about a decade ago and the 2nd one is recent.

      The original scam was revealed when secret emails between the scientists were hacked and found to show attempts to change data and interpretations so they could get more government grants since it will look like they were doing something important.

      The 2nd and current global warming scam is even more extensive with temperature data altered at the very research facilities themselves.

      1.
      a 35% Middle Class Tax Cut
      2.
      a 30% Middle Class Tax Cut
      3.
      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.
      .

      The TOP INCOME TIER get PERMANENT nearly 83% of the nearly $2 TRILLION) in Tax Cuts.
      …in addition to all those they got permanently during the Bush Admin.
      The REST of the cuts go permanently to the International Conglomerates….owned largely by the TOP 1%…
      .
      Remember Trump telling us that his tax plan would not benefit himself….??
      .

      Days after he signed the bill….
      He gave a VERY BRIEF SPEECH to his fellow Billionaires in Mar A Logo…..
      “You ALL just got a whole lot Richer “
      .
      He got a standing ovation….were you there, applauding!

    It was just a communist scam from the very first time they mentioned this scam and never anything but. Most of the liberal clowns that believe this $#!+, and many of the idiots do believe it., can’t even answer a simple physical science question at a eight grade level. Remember liberals spend 4 years getting trained to be whiny bitches, and to ignore anything that the communist controllers tell them too.

  • Little Bill

    Okay I just there is so many things you just got wrong 1. Ask any scientist if they believe in global warming they do believe in it and it has been proven 2. You are just too afraid to admit it’s not in China or South America it everywhere here and now 3. You know the science behind it’s called the green house effect when the sun beams down on the earth to provide energy to plants after that it reflects out to space but CO2, H2O (Water Vapor), and AO2 capture these particles and keep them in the earth adding more heat to the earth. 4. You just got lectured by a 6th grade that knows more than you, Damn.

    The whole this is a political scam dreamed up by the globalist movement to keep people scared. If you keep them scared about something, they wont be paying attention to what the globalists are really doing: trying to tear down borders and cause anarchy aimed at taking over the world. I’m glad this hoax has been exposed and that the globalists have been dealt a great setback! I wonder what the next “catastrophe” will be to try to scare the crap out of the sheeple?

  • Mike B

    I have a solution that will totally eliminate all worries about climate change and will only take TWENTY MINUTES!! The trick is, you MUST BE CONSISTENT! You must not stop doing this for one second or it will not work. It does not require everybody to do this, only those worried about climate change. Remember, TWENTY minutes straight, non-stop, and climate change will end!! Ready? One… Two…. Three! HOLD YOUR BREATH!!!!

    Thanks for this list, i knew this was a hoax when I first heard of “climate change” when it was called “global warming” my last year in high school. It’s very simple to know that the biosphere absorbs carbon to keep a balance, so more carbon = more plants, duh. Turns out that this “climate change” lie is part of a taxation scheme to deny people access to resources and create a new “asset” known as “Renewable Energy Certificates” and bring people down under a “technocratic” system of worldwide oppression and poverty. Looks like it has failed, but people still are buying this climate change story, but I think more people are become aware that it’s a lie. Its mathematical premise was also just disproven by Lord Mockton.

    • Rick Kooi

      “lord Mockton” ………….. I thought I had heard the last of that FAKER !
      NOT a lord….parliament demanded he stop using that fraud.
      NOT a scientist….can barely add using his fingers.

      “biosphere absorbs carbon to keep a balance”
      So what happened since we are no longer in balance????????

      World Temps are up 1.19 C in just 125 yrs.
      Nat. Cycles average 1 C in 7500 years

      Rising Carbon Dioxide has warmed temps…so there is added plant growth in far northern and far southern latitudes.
      …not in farm fields.
      .
      …Droughts and Heat waves are doing their dirt to farm fields.

      .
      LESS PROTEIN
      LESS IRON
      LESS ZINC
      .
      ALL programs proposed, to date, to deal with the reality of climate change are to
      incentivize capitalism AND to add costs to CARBON USE….which have always been there but HUGE, HUGE, subsidies & tax breaks & free bees around the world given to COAL & OIL…. about 6.5% of the Gross Domestic Product is funneled into Fossil Fuel supports.

      In 1970,

      (Google IRIS SATELLITE)
      .
      In 1996,
      the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite which recorded similar observations.
      (Google IMG SATELLITE)
      .
      Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes in outgoing radiation over the 26 year period.
      (Google Harries 2001).
      .
      What they found was a drop in outgoing radiation at the wavelength bands that greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) absorb energy…Decreasing outgoing radiation as Green House Gases were increasing.

      The change in outgoing radiation is consistent with theoretical expectations.

      ******* Thus the paper found empirical “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Earth Warming.

      This result has been repeated & confirmed by subsequent papers
      using more recent satellite data.
      The 1970 and 1997 spectra were compared with additional satellite data
      from the NASA AIRS satellite launched in 2003
      (Google Griggs 2004).

      This analysis was extended to 2006 using data from the AURA satellite launched in 2004
      (Google Chen 2007)
      (Googel Aura Satellite)

      Both papers found the observed differences in CO2 bands matching the PREDICTED changes from rising carbon dioxide levels.

      Thus we have ROCK SOLID empirical evidence that increased CO2 is causing an enhanced greenhouse effect.

      ** Thus these research studies & papers found “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Global Warming.

      ( If Infra Red HEAT Energy, does not escape, it is retained in our Earth System,

    Come forward two years. 2014, 2015 and 2016 were all record warm years. Antarctic sea ice is at record lows. As a professor and scientist, I agree with most other scientists that climate change is the most serious problem facing our country and the world.

    Temperature increase causes outgassing of CO2 from the oceans same way your soda fizzles when warm and calms down when cold. At 10 deg C water contains 2.3 grams of CO2 in 1,000cc of water. At 20 deg C it is 1.3 g per liter, or 47% loss. -A big variation going back and forth around the world’s oceans on annual cycle. Furthermore, the Golfstrom that brings warm water to upper Europe absorbs CO2 while cooling and sinking to return South in continuous manner. Whatever causes the temperature rise is immaterial when seen from this perspective. -There are several sources, all of them harking back to Sun activity and orientation of a particular geographic location during seasons of the year. To claim CO2 causes global warming is absurd, mixing cause and effect to accomplish some predestined goal that has nothing to do with reality.

      1799
      ” ‘Climate Change’ was Postulated in 1799, Alexander von Humboldt.”
      as temperatures warmed. this was verified thru multiple historical records
      1811
      “Climate Changed Scientifically tied Global Warming & Human Activity by physicist & astronomer Simeon Denis Poisson, 1811….”
      from multiple historical records
      He lectured, extensively, on this threat by 1827 !
      1847
      “George Perkins Marsh (1801-1882) author of the 1847 lecture that predicted – “human-induced climate change” – from multiple historical records
      Scientists WERE ALREADY LECTURING ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING and the resulting Climate Changes, in 1847 !
      1861
      “The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide & other gases was experimentally demonstrated & *PROVED* in the mid-19th century.”
      “The greenhouse gas qualities of carbon dioxide have been known for over a century.
      In 1861, John Tyndal published laboratory results
      identifying carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas that absorbed heat rays (longwave radiation).
      Since then, the absorptive qualities of carbon dioxide have been more precisely quantified by decades of laboratory measurements
      (Herzberg 1953, Burch 1962, Burch 1970, etc).

      These same fundamental experiments & equations
      are * Challenged & Replicated

      Human carbon dioxide emissions & other gasses are calculated from international energy statistics, tabulating coal, brown coal, peat, and crude oil production by nation and year, going back to 1751.
      .
      CO2 emissions have increased dramatically over the last century.
      .
      For periods before 1958, CO2 levels are determined from air bubbles trapped in polar ice cores. In pre-industrial times over the last 20,000 years, CO2 was relatively stable at around 225 to 285 parts per million.
      .
      (( Man Made CO2 has a unique Isotope, allowing Science to closely measure/monitor CO2 levels in the atmosphere ))
      .
      Over the last 250 years, atmospheric CO2 levels have increased by OVER 110 parts per million.
      .
      Currently, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is increasing by around 15 gigatonnes every year.
      .
      ( Instead of 225-285PPM, as it has been for 1,000’s upon 1,000’s of years,
      today we are NOW ‘ OVER ‘ 411PPM ! )
      .
      Humans have never existed during a time when CO2 or Methane levels in the atmosphere have been this HIGH.
      .
      We have no IDEA what this experiment with HIGHER Atmospheric Gases may have on Humans or on life itself.

      Humans are Dumping More than 135 Times more CO2 into Earth’s Atmosphere than ALL of the Volcanoes, combined. Year after Year.

      In 1970,
      NASA launched the IRIS satellite that measured infrared spectra between 400 cm-1 to 1600 cm-1.
      (Google IRIS SATELLITE)
      .
      In 1996,
      the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite which recorded similar observations.
      (Google IMG SATELLITE)
      .
      Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes in outgoing radiation over the 26 year period.
      (Google Harries 2001).
      .
      What they found was a drop in outgoing radiation at the wavelength bands that greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) absorb energy…Decreasing outgoing radiation as Green House Gases were increasing.

      The change in outgoing radiation is consistent with theoretical expectations.

      ******* Thus the paper found empirical “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Earth Warming.

      This result has been repeated & confirmed by subsequent papers
      using more recent satellite data.
      The 1970 and 1997 spectra were compared with additional satellite data
      from the NASA AIRS satellite launched in 2003
      (Google Griggs 2004).

      This analysis was extended to 2006 using data from the AURA satellite launched in 2004
      (Google Chen 2007)
      (Googel Aura Satellite)

      Both papers found the observed differences in CO2 bands matching the PREDICTED changes from rising carbon dioxide levels.

      Thus we have ROCK SOLID empirical evidence that increased CO2 is causing an enhanced greenhouse effect.

      ** Thus these research studies & papers found “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Global Warming.

      ( If Infra Red HEAT Energy, does not escape, it is retained in our Earth System,
      AS PREDICTED, as rising temperatures, warming rising seas, melting Ice, acidification of oceans. )

      1. So we see a direct line of evidence that we’re causing global warming. Human CO2 emissions far outstrip the rise in CO2 levels.
      2. The enhanced greenhouse effect is confirmed by satellites, weather balloons, airplane scans, and many surface measurements.
      3. The planet’s energy imbalance is confirmed by summations of the planet’s total heat content and ocean heat measurements….”

        I am quite happy with global warming, and sorry to see it evolve into climate change with another cold snap lasting few centuries on the horizon, rickcool as you call yourself. You obviously spent a lot of time preparing your post and you deserve credit for your effort. Human and cattle CO2 contribution does play some role, and I see it as a good thing, not a calamity IPCC and their stooges are projecting. IPPC stated mission is to blame humanity for all of CO2 ‘evil’ influence, totally ignoring the reality of the Earth situation. At any time on Earth, about 40 volcanoes are actively spewing aerosols. One good size volcano eruption of Tambora size can precipitate another year without summer and starvation of massive proportions on the top of already developing another Mauner minimum.

        • Rick Kooi

          It is Called the ” IPCC “…Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

          THE WORD “Evil” was not used by IPCC.

          Humans DUMP more than 135 times MORE CO2 into the atmosphere than
          ALL OF THE VOLCANOES on EARTH…..each and EVERY YEAR !

          THE Maunder Minimum was only .12% of the energy per year that Global Warming is generating per year.

          A good Questions to ask is what ended the 7500 year temperature descent into the next ice age which ended
          about 1750 ? ? ?
          .
          We are just started into the global warming that was predicted in 1965 to start showing its ugly side by 2015.

          10 of the 15 busiest Hurricane seasons have occurred since 2000.
          Storms world wide have doubled.
          Flooding Rain Events have more than doubled

      simplify it — the Ice Core Data will show you that the temperature will increase BEFORE any increases in atmospheric CO2. That is because the cause and effect is the opposite of what the IPCC tells you. Simplify it even more, go to Al Gore’s stupid movie and freeze frame those two charts he projects on the wall and use a straight edge to see why they lying sack of sheet rock didn’t OVERLAY the two!!!!!
