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.

  • BigDuck

    So, the ones like Al Gore and AOC are preaching climate change and we need to do our part by getting rid of cars and planes. But I guess Al Gore didn’t read his own memos because he fly’s around in his private plane. Then recently AOC was asked at the airport why she flew instead of using the train which has less carbon footprint. She said it saved her voters time and money… Ouch can’t practice what you preach makes it hard for some us to take you seriously…

  • Grace by Faith

    If there is any actual global warming or climate change it’s because they’re creating it, they use defense department funds because they consider us the enemy, cancers on earth and slaves to uphold the fake debt. They have deployed all sorts of weather misery on us. They need evidence of it which they’ll fake because they create it so we’ll go along with their tyrannical Agenda 21/30 and ridiculous carbon tax (we breathe it out) and ration energy, food and transporation, lowering our standards of living from quality of life, to quality of place.

    That place is a smart megacity where you will work on the first floor of the building where you live in a stack & pack smart 200sq ft box, with a box on your head for virtual, well, everything because it will be too expensive or inconvenient to use public transportation or a bike, like when it rains, when you’re taking your kids to school and when you’re trying to do grocery shopping for the week for a family of 5. Not easily done on a freaking bus or bike. They’re all insane and we’d better put a stop to it before it’s too late.

    Man made globaling warming is a hoax and designed to tax people and use the money to finance mass migration from the third world into europe and United States. Kalargi Plan.

  • Phillip Parker

    Climate change is real and the evidence is in the cosmos. Earth’s magnetic pole, the moon’s magnetic pole, the Sun’s magnetic pole and even Mars (which has a really weak magnetic field) have all had pole tilts. This is delaying the effects of the season. It has put the solar minimum/maximum 7 years cycles out of whack and it is responsible for the movement of a permafrost. The problem is – politicians can’t tax it.

      (THIS Holocene Inter Glacial Warm Period PEAKED in temperatures 7,500-9,000 years ago)

      Since then, there has been an overall cooling trend, consistent with a continuation of this ‘NATURAL’ cycle,

    Did you even read the article for item 1?

  • GOOSE

    I don’t care one bit about “climate change” AKA; Global Warming. Reason being Is the hypocrites that push this on us, Al Gore uses private jets, massive amounts of water and private escorts (over six vehicles) for himself. Its such a joke and a con, when all these actors push this when they themselves use private jets and vehicles. When these other nations do not one bit. Yet the United States will bankrupt itself while other countries prosper (*happened during the Hussein Obama administration). What a joke and the biggest con of the 21st century.

    • R. Kooi

      Al Gore is a failed politician, he is not now, nor has he ever been a Scientist.
      .
      Every Wealthy person takes advantage of such wealth…take for example Donald Trump.
      ……..
      Equally important is the FACT that Our Sun’s ” Energy Output ” has DECREASED a bit over the last 50 years…all the while these temperatures have been rising.
      .
      Solar Energy Decreases, YET Global Warming Increases, more rapidly.

      THE EARTH SHOULD BE ‘ COOLING ‘ and ‘ COOLING ‘ DRAMATICALLY !
      SO, What Terminated Earth’s MOST powerful NATURAL CLIMATE CHANGE Cycle ?
      What Terminated 8,000 years of falling temperatures, the Little Ice Age ?

      .
      These are not ideas which have been invented by Al Gore or Modern Science or Marxism.
      .
      1799
      Alexander von Humboldt studied, worried and postulated that
      Human Activities / Pollution would CAUSE CLIMATE CHANGE!
      Strip Mining entire mountain tops, Clear Cutting entire Forests,
      burning Coal/Peat/Wood/Oil, building huge cities which have their own climates
      .
      The First USE of ” CLIMATE CHANGE ” STILL in use today.
      .
      1799-1804
      Thomas Jefferson also penned a paper on observed climate changes
      which he stated was probably caused by man…and had many discussions with John Adams
      on these climate changes.
      .
      1804 : Thomas Jefferson On Climate Change | Real Science
      “A change in our climate is taking place very surely. Both heat and cold are becoming moderate within the memory of even the middle-aged,
      and snows are less frequent and less deep.” – Thomas Jefferson 1804″

      1811
      Science Tied Warming, Climate Changes directly to Human Activities & Industrialization.
      .
      1824
      Jean-Baptiste Fourier calculates that the Earth would be far colder if it lacked an atmosphere
      .
      1856
      “….a paper entitled “Circumstances affecting the heat of the sun’s rays,” by Eunice Foote.
      In two brisk pages, Foote’s paper anticipated the revolution in climate science
      by experimentally demonstrating the effects of the sunlight on certain gases
      and theorizing how those gases would interact with Earth’s atmosphere for the first time.
      In a column of the September 1856 issue of Scientific American titled “Scientific Ladies,”
      Foote is praised for supporting her opinions with “practical experiments.”
      The writers noted: “this we are happy to say has been done by a lady.”
      Foote’s research & paper
      demonstrated the interactions of the sun’s rays
      on different gases through a SERIES of experiments….”
      ((Variations of those fundamental Experiments are critiqued/taught in nearly every 1st year science course
      on colleges and Universities around the world.

      Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist that was the first to claim in
      1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming.
      .
      1958 & again in 1965

  • revkenmcdonald

    Al Gore has hit on the best hox since God shovelled guts into mankind. He is making big money from it, more then he would have made if he had been elected as the President of the U.S.A. Even Mal Turnbull (Ex-Australian Prime Minister) is making money from this hoax with his carbon credits he is flogging of to industry. There are poor souls out there who actually believe what has been brandish around as fact about this hoax. It has cost millions of Dollars just through the closer of industries which have been priced out of the market because of elevated costs of electricity and gas with the decline of reliable power generation sorcerers. Solar and wind turbines will not return the expense of manufacture in dollar terms, they also generate more of that evil carbon which is the crutch of this hoax when being manufactured. At end of life they again emit carbon when being broken down to their basic metals. Plants use carbon to survive and they emit oxygen for the rest of us to survive. This hoax will be studied like War of the Worlds was years ago. About the same amount of people have been conned by it.

    • R. Kooi

      Gore is not a scientist…he is a failed politician.
      If you want to discuss SCIENCE, try learning something about science.

      Gore has not earned 1 DIME from any of his movies, books, speeches, college lectures etc….he donate every thing to the cause.

      Gore Runs a wildly successful venture capital firm and engages in some successful real estate ventures.

      Yes, Plants need CO2…WE have far more than all the plants on earth need.

      YOU are not a Turnip.
      YOU exhale CO2 because it is a TOXIC BY-PRODUCT of our digestive tract.
      Just like PEE and POOP.

  • R. Kooi

    Humans have NEVER existed outside of these levels of atmospheric Gasses before.—-> 180ppm-300ppm.
    .
    Now Human Industry has rapidly forced CO2 (& other toxic gasses) above 415PPM…now Skeptic/Deniers are talking about a CO2 DROUGHT????
    .
    REMEMBER:
    We are not talking about JUST CO2.
    We are Talking about nearly 2 DOZEN atmospheric gasses … Like Methane, CFCs, Oxides etc. Most Harmful to Human life.
    and also
    TAKE NOTE:
    Human life did not arise until the natural processes on Earth Removed 80% of CO2 & other Gasses from the Atmosphere.
    .
    We have no long term studies to see what the effects from long term exposure to these high levels of CO2 or other gasses will be.
    .
    Despite what this 80-year-old retired physicist Claims
    (physicists are not medical doctors, have no medical training what so ever)
    .
    WE Humans HAVE
    PROSPERED AS A SPECIES
    WITHIN THESE atmospheric GAS LEVELS.
    between 180ppm and300ppm.
    For nearly 3 million years, ALL LIFE on Earth HAS FLOURISHED within these Atmospheric Gas levels.
    1.
    I can think of no compelling reason to argue with 3 million years of success !
    2.
    I can think of no compelling reason to experiment with all animal life on earth without random long term studies to determine the final outcome of such an experiment!

    1.
    CO2 has beneficially enabled life on Earth.
    (holding infra-red heat/warming the planet so life may proliferate)(has some fertilizer effect)
    (without CO2 + other Green House gases, Earth would be a Cold ROCK 0 degrees F.)
    .
    This is the story of a little is good but a lot is deadly…consider Aspirin, for example.
    .
    The Goldi Locks Level for humans of atmospheric CO2 has always been between 180ppm & 300ppm!
    OUR ENTIRE PHYSIOLOGY IS BASED ON THOSE NUMBERS 180ppm to300ppm.
    We evolved to meet these numbers 180ppm to 300ppm overe hundreds of thousands of years.
    We have no idea what increasing those gasses in our atmophere will do to our grand Children’s DNA.
    We have NEVER existed outside of these levels of atmospheric gasses.
    .
    Every Year a human has walked on Earth (hundreds of thousands of years)
    CO2 & other Gasses have ALWAYS been between 180ppm and 300ppm.
    .
    2.
    CO2 has boosted plant life on Earth provided the required Nutrients, Minerals & H2O increase in proportion
    BUT Coincidentially, as CO2 levels have increased, Nutrient values of Grains the world has grown dependent upon, have FALLEN at a Faster Rate !
    *
    LESS Iron
    *
    LESS Protein
    *
    LESS Zinc
    *
    LESS Copper etc.
    *
    IN all of the Staple Grains that the world has become dependent upon !
    So you see, CO2 has some current benefits & some immediate challenges to human well being !

    .
    3.
    CO2 Kills!
    .
    CO2 is a pollutant. ALL ANIMALS ON EARTH EXHALE CO2 to dispose of this Poisonous waste product, JUST LIKE pee and poop!
    It kills, since it IS a Poison
    It kills, since it IS an Asphyxiant
    (heavier than air, it smothers life)
    .
    (the higher the level of CO2, the lower the level of Oxygen)
    .
    EVERY LARGE Building ON EARTH is MANDATED TO HAVE A Fresh Air Recirculation System! In order to fight the VERY HARMFUL effects of CO2 settling in basements and SEALED ROOMS.
    .
    THINK!
    AS atmospheric CO2 levels increase, so does the THREAT of CO2 in basements, sealed rooms, in protected valleys/glades.

    “Police:
    Carbon dioxide led to death in McDonald’s bathroom September 14, 2011 1:38 p.m. EDT

    *
    CO2 is heavier than air, so the concentration near the floor will be much higher,”
    as well as protected glades, basements and sealed rooms.
    .
    “Higher Concentrations of CO2 in the Atmosphere increases incidents of
    threatening concentrations at ground levels and basements…”

    Tragically those whose Synaptic pathways are completely scrambled and are afflicted with and suffering from such an intense form of psychosis there is no known cure for it are in control of all media, printed word, opinions carried over the airwaves, and of course Cyberspace, enter the phrase “Those who believe in climate change are idiots,” and you will see nothing but articles of just the opposite being true, yes it is us who believe Global warming, because that is the consensus among the Looney Libtards and that it is due to industrialization.

    Why should the United States have to cut back on burning CO2 producing Fossil fuels when the nations like China and probably just about every major industrial nation produce far more CO2 gases from burning far more coal than we do.

    Biggest SCAM since “o”bamacare. Both brought to you by the communist, democrats to EXTRACT money out of every American. 90% of all scientists say global warming in a SCAM. Most American’s agree, just like “o’bamacare.

    Looking through it I would just like to say, R. Kooi. Please get a life

    I’m leaving this now i have better shit to do

    • R. Kooi

      Yes Dear, but since you left me, I have nothing to do!!

    Has the world not warmed and cooled over the eons, long before man was here? Yes. Der…

    • R. Kooi

      The last Rapid Temperature change occurred exiting the last Glaciation(iceage)
      about 12000 years ago…

      5C in 5,000 years.
      … that is about

      0.1C per decade.
      TODAY
      1.4C per century

      We are warming 14 times faster (& increasing) than historic record.

      Add to that dramatic increase in temps
      …the fact that we are in the Milankovitch cycles where we should be COOLING!
      and COOLING DRAMATICALLY!
      … but counter to Earth’s most Powerful Natural Cycle…we are warming !

  • Nigel Southway

    The other point is that CO2 has almost a zero effect on climate change and its clear mankind has little role.. the solar effects are far greater…. BUT.. we do have a firm effect on pollution and not just the air….so we do need to rethink globalization and build more sustainable economies and it does not mean stopping the use of carbon.. but watching its by products such as plastics in the sea ways and the over use of transport ships and use less wasteful transportation and manufacturing destinations from an ecological aspect… etc. … In other words rethink globalized manufacturing and extended supply chains… people will pollute less if its created in their own back yard and we will waste less if we have to make grow and mine what we consume.

  • rbiermann

    As early as 1989, the UN was already trying to sell their “tipping point” rhetoric on the public. See: U.N. Warning of 10-Year ‘Climate Tipping Point’ Began in 1989 – Excerpt: According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned of a “10-year window of opportunity to solve” global warming. According to the 1989 article, “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos.”

  • That Gay Cousin

    I have never in my life seen such petty and useless discussions. All of you are here discussing if climate change is real. All you people living in the U.S. with no degrees in science are going against multiple scientists with multiple degrees. While you are arguing, please keep in mind Bangladesh’s ground line is receding as the water continues to ‘eat’ at it. Antarctica holds about 70% of the world fresh water, and it’s melting as we speak. Florida is a flat land, so is California. They are going to be flooded extremely fast. So while you discuss this, watch Greenland melt, watch Florida flood, watch these hurricanes worsen, watch the world die, then tell me what you see.

    • Kenneth Clark

      Never been to California I presume. It is mountainous with the highest peak at over 14,000 feet and growing. Yes there are some low lying areas but definitely not flat by any means. So, what ever “Degreed Scientists” you gleaned your information from is far, far away in a land of his/her own attempting to make people believe something that is obviously a lie.

      Just a bit of advice, never take someone’s word. Degreed or not. Research yourself and learn the truth.

      Yes, climate changes at least 4 times per year. Some of these periods are shorter or longer depending upon your geographic location. These times have the common names of; Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring.

      Throughout world history there have been massive changes. These cannot be stopped by man as they were never caused by man. These are natural cycles of our planet to keep its self in check. If humans have chosen to live along coast lines they should at the least know a little history of our planet’s cycles as one day it will happen again.

      • That Gay Cousin

        Sorry I think I was unclear I meant parts of California are low lying lands. It also doesn’t matter if the land is flat or not, sooner or later we all might be under water. Just look at Venice, parts of it has waist deep water and people still debate climate change, which annoys me. Many scientists have already confirmed it since 40 years ago. Now it’s impossible to prevent climate change….we can only slow it down.

        • Kenneth Clark

          The people of Venice have travelled by Gondola for Centuries. They built Venice basically in the water.
          I’m sure you’ve heard the story of building a house in the sand and when the rain comes what happens… you always build on high, solid ground.
          Technology cannot not, nor will it ever stop Mother Nature when she decides it’s time for a change. Just look at previous ice ages, the Sahara Desert was once a vast Oasis, there is much evidence that much of the US was once under water.
          Warming and cooling of the earth is a natural cycle. The difference this time is that politicians are monetizing it and using fear mongering to accomplish their goal. There is no amount of money gonna stop or slow down what Mother Nature is going to do.

      • R. Kooi

        “Throughout world history there have been massive changes. ”

        That may be true…but humans in those Eras did not terminate Earth’s largest most powerful NATURAL CYCLES….
        The Milankovitch Cycles.

        This Holocene Inter Glacial Warm Period PEAKED 6500 to 7500 years ago. Temps. have been falling (in spurts & sputters) since then…and should have continues for ten thousands of years more.

        Yet Suddenly in the late 1700s…that era ended.
        The Little Ice Age came to an end.

  • Victor Lawson

    If the NWO communists can get a majority of countries to buy into the warming hoax they think they can get NWO passage of the carbon credits hoax, essentially a tax to exist, to live and breathe. Carbon credits would be the biggest hoax ever and would cause world wide warfare and chaos. You don’t EVER want to see a carbon credits tax (hoax) implemented.

    • R. Kooi

      YES!
      This is one of Earth’s cycles…The Holocene INTER GLACIAL warm period … predictable as clock work.
      This Period Peaked in temperature around 6500 to 7500 years ago.
      Since then, Temperatures have been falling…with brief spurts in Temps…but falling.

      The Massive Redistribution of Wealth has been ongoing for nearly a century.
      The Massive Fossil Fuel Industries hold near monopolistic control on the energy and heating business world wide.

      The Fossil Fuel Industry, despite consistent profitability, has had its hand in taxpayers pockets since 1918.

      At the Start of the 21st century, about 1% of the Entire World’s Gross Domestic Product was devoted to Subsidies, Supports for the profitable Fossil Fuel Industries.

      During 2016, about 6.5% of the Entire WORLD’S GDP—many Trillions of dollars was Supports & Subsidies & Freebies for COAL, OIL, GAS.

      ALL OF that is in addition to profits from sales.

      Trillions of Dollars into the hands of a few thousand families and their Global Deep State Bankers.
      .
      And, along with that…the huge increase in Natural Disasters largely caused by the Fossil Fuel dumping of Toxic Chemicals/Gasses into our atmosphere…the Repairs to infra structure, the increased governmental debts, are ALL BANKED by these GLOBAL Deep State Bankers.

    So, to quote Mr Einstein, he stated that: “Energy can never be created or destroyed. It can only ever transfer or transform”. so, if we look at what the implications of that are, we begin to realise that the climate change claim is one big hoax. The matter, elements, energy, and particles of this planet are all contained within Earth atmosphere and do not escape into space, (at least CO2 doesn’t), so eventually all matter will reduce back to it’s original state. The only way the earth can change the amount of heat/energy it has at it’s disposal, has to come from an outside source, ie, electro-magnetic radiation ( sun light). So, the single biggest factor for an imbalance in CO2 excess in the atmosphere is not mans burning of carbon, but the amount of deforestation and desertification that has been allowed to happen over the last 4000 years due to poor animal husbandry. Simply renewing vegetable matter (reforestation, which is easily done) to reclaim the earths deserts would halt this imbalance.

    • R. Kooi

      Mankind did not, could not exist UNTIL 80% of Earth’s atmospheric CARBON was sequestered.
      NOW
      we are digging up that carbon, and burning that carbon, thereby adding that carbon to our atmosphere.

      You could not reforest enough land and have it grow fast enough to touch what human agriculture and industry are pumping into our atmosphere.

      The Heat DOES come from an outside force….the SUN.
      That High Energy Solar Radiation
      (largely NON reactive with Earth’s atmospheric gasses)
      Warms Earth/Atmosphere…then radiates to the cold of space As LOW ENERGY IR Thermal Radiation.
      ((..this type of radiation is highly re-active with earth’s atmospheric gasses.))
      .
      Here is the science/history:

      The World’s Leading Scientific Minds & specifically, virtually all of NASA SCIENTISTS,

      Congressman Paul Ryan
      gave a Lengthy Lamentation in August 2016,
      that by year’s end, the US would pass the $1 trillion mark
      in SUBSIDIES-FOR-THE-WEALTHY ” Profitable ” Industries
      ……….the Fossil Fuel Industries.
      $1 Trillion in the US to those profitable industries.
      .
      Last Year the world reached an even more worrisome Record….6.5% of the entire world’s GDP is now being sucked up by the Fossil Fuel Industries & Industries that feed the fossils, and their bankers around the world.

      THAT IS MANY TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

      Green Energy Industries receive a few billions….
      and in response
      They have stabilized Electric Rates or Dropped Electric rates in states where they are allowed to compete.
      They have eliminated the NEED for COAL ELECTRIC DUMP SITES for TOXIC COAL ASH…thousands of them in 47 states.
      Of those measured, 91% of those toxic sites are LEACHING TOXINS into drinking water aquifers and/or LEAKING into streams and rivers.
      .
      “Spending $1 million on investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency
      will create over 16 jobs within the U.S.,” Pollin calculates,
      “while spending the same $1 million on our existing fossil fuel infrastructure
      will generate about 5.3 jobs—i.e. building a green economy in the U.S. generates
      Roughly three times more jobs per dollar than maintaining our fossil fuel dependency.”

      Wind Energy Is One of the Cheapest Sources of Electricity, It’s Getting Cheaper

  • Stefan Gendron
    • R. Kooi

      THAT is a very old Turbine…decades and, so is the helicopter.
      The Golden Eagle was a case where an environmental study was ignored and the turbines were built in a mountain pass…they have been taken down.
      ————————————————————————————————-
      RABID Pro Fossil Fuel CLAIM:
      COAL is cheap energy (actually the most subsidized energy on earth) …Renewable Energy is expensive/Left Wing Conspiracy.
      (( Solar & Wind are FAR LESS Expensive/CREATE No Toxic Waste dumps like Killer COAL! ))
      – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
      “….Data made public by COAL power companies showed that of the 265 COAL ELECTRIC plants subject to the monitoring requirement, 241 – or 91 percent – showed unsafe levels of one or more TOXIC coal ash components in nearby groundwater compared to EPA standards, according to the analysis by the groups.

      “The report also found that 52 percent of those plants had unsafe levels of cancer-causing ARSENIC in nearby groundwater while 60 percent showed unsafe levels of LITHIUM, which can cause neurological damage.
      “Using industry’s own data, our report proves that coal plants are poisoning groundwater nearly everywhere they operate,”
      —————————————————————————————

      Dumping/Pumping Toxic Waste is the Cheapest Waste Disposal method (maximizes profits). Every year 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 PLANTS 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.
      .
      Most of these sites lack ANY adequate safeguards, leaving nearby communities at risk from potential large-scale disasters like the massive coal ash spill in Tennessee in 2008
      &
      from gradual yet equally dangerous contamination as coal ash toxins seep into drinking water Aquifers or are blown into nearby communities.
      .
      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.), and other illnesses.
      .
      Coal ash is NOT subject to federal supervision, and state laws governing coal combustion waste disposal are weak or nonexistent.
      .
      The result: TENS Millions of tons of TOXIC coal ash PRODUCED BY EACH COAL ELECTRIC PLANT are being stored in hundreds if not thousands of ponds, landfills, and abandoned mines…in 47 states.

    Coal for Heat / Energy………..19th and 20th Century Technology
    Oil/Nuclear for Heat/Energy…..later 20th Century Technology
    Solar Wind for Heat/Energy…..21st Century Technology
    And
    Solar and Wind are FAR LESS Expensive and getting less expensive.
    Coal & OIl are More Expensive and getting more expensive with increasing demands for higher and higher subsidies/supports.

    they called it “global worming” but the globe did not warm up enough to prove them right, so then they started calling it “climate change”. OMG that must be the most stupid term ever coined! Idiots, climate by default is meant to change. I will start worrying when climate stops changing. Idiots.l

    • R. Kooi

      Sorry Dear Boy…you are reading toooooo much Daily Caller and Breitbart.
      ..not known for telling the truth.
      .
      CLIMATE CHANGE ” was used first.
      .
      OMG
      WHAT INTERUPTED EARTH’S most powerful natural cycle?
      .
      Since then,
      temperatures have been rising for OVER 2 CENTURIES!
      (Thomas Jefferson and John Adams discussed this notable change.)
      .
      Equally important is the FACT that Our Sun’s ” Energy Output ” has DECREASED over the last 50 years...all the while these temperatures have been rising.
      .
      Look for yourself:
      Solar Energy Decreases,
      YET Global Warming Increases, more rapidly.
      https://static.skepticalscience.com/pics/TvsTSI.png
      ..
      THE EARTH SHOULD BE ‘ COOLING ‘ and ‘ COOLING ‘ DRAMATICALLY !
      SO,
      What Terminated Earth’s Most powerful NATURAL CLIMATE CHANGE Cycle?
      .
      For that matter,
      What Terminated the Little Ice Age ?
      .
      Only the Enhanced Green House Effect fully Explains this ongoing event!
      Look:
      https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2015-whats-warming-the-world/
      .
      These are not ideas! Invented by Modern Science, Dr. Michael Mann, Karl Marx or Groucho Marx.
      .
      1799
      Alexander von Humboldt studied, worried and postulated that Human Activities / Pollution would CAUSE “CLIMATE CHANGE”! Strip Mining entire mountain tops, Clear Cutting entire Forests, burning Coal/Peat/Wood/Oil, building huge cities which create their own climates
      .
      Alexander von Humboldt Coined the Term “Climate Change” in 1799.
      The First USE of ” CLIMATE CHANGE “/ the definition of which is still in use today.
      .
      1799
      Thomas Jefferson also penned a paper on observed “climate change” which he stated
      was probably caused by man…and had many discussions with John Adams on these climate changes.
      1804
      Thomas Jefferson(scientist/philospher/politician) On Climate Change/Real Science.
      —–> “A change in our climate is taking place very surely.
      Both heat and cold are becoming moderate within the memory of even the middle-aged,
      and snows are less frequent and less deep.”
      1811
      Scientists Tied Warming, Climate Changes directly to Human Activities & Industrialization.
      1824
      Jean-Baptiste Fourier calculates that the Earth would be far colder if it lacked an atmosphere.
      Certainly,
      “…Tyndall’s equipment, laboratory and experimental results were more sophisticated than Eunice Foote’s,
      and he is rightly credited with establishing the experimental basis for the greenhouse effect,
      first suggested by Swiss physicist Horace Bénédict de Saussure in the the 1760s and
      later developed by French mathematician Joseph Fourier in the 1820s
      and French physicist Claude Pouillet in 1836…”
      1856
      “….a paper entitled “Circumstances affecting the heat of the sun’s rays,” by Eunice Foote.
      In two brisk pages, Foote’s paper anticipated the revolution in climate science
      by experimentally demonstrating the effects of the sunlight on certain gases and
      theorizing how those gases would interact with Earth’s atmosphere for the first time.
      In a column of the September 1856 issue of Scientific American titled “Scientific Ladies,”
      Foote is praised for supporting her opinions with “practical experiments.”
      The writers noted: “this we are happy to say has been done by a lady.”
      .
      Foote’s research & paper demonstrated the interactions of the sun’s rays
      on different gases through a SERIES of experiments….”
      .
      ((Variations of those fundamental Experiments are critiqued/taught in nearly every 1st year science course on colleges and Universities around the world.))
      1896
      Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist that was
      the first to claim in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming.
      1931
      “Hulburt’s own calculations supported Arrhenius’s estimate that
      doubling or halving CO2 would bring something like a 4°C rise or fall of surface temperature,
      and thus “the carbon dioxide theory of the ice ages… is a possible theory.”(11)
      Hardly anyone noticed this paper. Hulburt was an obscure worker at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory,
      and he published in a journal, the Physical Review, that few meteorologists read.”
      1935
      Still, Science largely believed: “Fifty times more carbon is dissolved in sea water than in the wispy atmosphere.”
      “Just like the Sea, plants would grow more lush and thus That would Control/Balance CO2 influence on Climate.??
      1948
      It was thought “The a self-regulating mechanisms of the carbon cycle can cope with the present influx of carbon of fossil origin.”
      1940s
      “…Callendar….concluded that over the past hundred years the concentration of the gas (CO2) had increased by about 10%. This rise, Callendar asserted, could explain the observed warming.
      1952
      “…Digital computers were now at hand for such calculations. The theoretical physicist Lewis D. Kaplan decided it was worth taking some time away from what seemed like more important matters to grind through extensive numerical computations. In 1952, he showed that in the upper atmosphere, adding more CO2 must change the balance of radiation….”
      1958
      and again in
      1965
      AAAS and the president’s Science Advisers presented Current Research & Warning about centuries of Industrial Dumping of Toxic Waste Products into our atmosphere, leading
      to threatening tumultuous Climate Changes from Global Warming.
      .
      Broecker is probably best-known for popularizing the term “global warming” through his 1975 paper
      “Climatic Change: Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?” in which he predicted that emissions of carbon dioxide would raise global temperatures significantly in the 21st century. This is now seen as prophetic, but at the time, Dr. Broecker was an outlier.

        You are using the data that was revised by liberal crooks in 1995. Read the data before the fix was in.
