WCCO Radio Discussion of Global Warming & GlobalClimateScam.com

tafoya-180I was a guest on the Michele Tafoya Show on Twin Cites News Talk station, WCCO 830 AM on Tuesday to discuss global warming and our website, GlobalClimateScam.com.

Michele wanted to get both sides of the global warming debate represented in the discussion, so her first guest was Jay Drake-Hamilton, science policy director for Fresh Energy. She advocated for federal dollars to weatherize homes and buildings and renewable energy sources, while arguing that global warming is going to cause increasingly extreme weather events like the snowstorms on the east coast.

I countered that the global warming theory is unraveling before our eyes, citing climategate, Phil Jones’ recent admissions of missing data, lack of warming and unreliable tree ring data to back my case.

    The global warming is Phenomena is in talks every day and the major cause of global warming is the raised CO2 levels in the atmosphere which traps the sun rays which raises the global temperature.

    • Dan McGrath February 18, 2010 at 1:21 pm #

      No. The major cause is the sun. Carbon Dioxide is the weakest of the defined greenhouse gasses and it’s effect on the climate is maxed out at a lower volume than now exists. Adding CO2 to the atmosphere produces diminishing returns in increasing the greenhouse effect. So much so, that it is virtually nil. Professor Lindzen’s satellite study of heat radiation escaping the earth proves that as the earth warms, more heat escapes into space, not less as the greenhouse/global warming theory expects. This proves that warming isn’t because of heat trapped under CO2. It’s cyclical and it’s dominated by increasing and decreasing solar activity. What happens when you turn up the flame on your stove? It gets hotter, right? Turn up the flames on that giant burner in the sky and guess what happens?

    Dan I thought you did a fine job on the air! I was disappointed that there was no “face off” but I think it worked . Keep up the good work!

    She’s hot. You are a lucky guy Dan. Pays to be a crank sometimes, eh?

    Must be nice to be a sexist. Thought the liberal trial lawyers would file suit over this comment. Especially at work, which based upon your posts, you are. Look out for that ambulance chaser behind you. I personally find your comment to Dan extremely insulting to say the least!

    Ohh, gee another threatening gesture from a right-winger. How original.

  8. Paul Wenum February 25, 2010 at 8:36 pm #

    Original it may not be but factual it is in my world.

  9. Rob N. Hood February 26, 2010 at 9:11 am #

    Look who’s worried about political correctness. Look, up hypocrite in the dictionary. Maybe Neil can do that for us…

  10. Paul Wenum February 26, 2010 at 10:42 pm #

    Sorry Sal, you have had your say. A recalcitrant person you are and a recalcitrant person you will always be. Never changes with you. Like listening to a broken record. Climate change is natural. Get it?????

  11. Rob N. Hood February 27, 2010 at 8:54 am #

    Aaaaannnnnndddd who’s the broken record? Oh, me… that’s right…

    You’re a funny guy Paul.

  12. paul wenum February 28, 2010 at 12:23 am #

    Yes, I laugh every time I read your responses which by the way are funny due to lack of substance. By the way I laugh when I see my “Funny” face on the net. Damn, I’m ugly.

  13. Rob N. Hood February 28, 2010 at 9:20 am #

    Yup. You, me and Neil. The three stooges. Dan’s very own funny and lovable three stooges.

  14. paul wenum February 28, 2010 at 11:50 pm #

    We have never seen your picture, embarrassed?. You must be Larry”? Nah, “Curly” is more appropriate based upon your comments thus far.

  15. Rob N. Hood March 1, 2010 at 9:04 am #

    And your picture is…Where? Even while jesting and joshing you have to stick to child-like jabs. It’s never too late to grow up.

  16. paul wenum March 1, 2010 at 11:52 pm #

    You can see me on the net my friend. I don’t hide who I am.

  17. Rob N. Hood March 2, 2010 at 3:38 pm #

    Yeah, well, my picture is hanging in the Post Office, so there!

    • Dan McGrath March 2, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

      Ah – that pesky Sherriff of Nottingham after you again?

  18. Paul Wenum March 2, 2010 at 8:30 pm #

    Damn, I just got stamps! Should have checked!

  19. Rob N. Hood March 4, 2010 at 1:13 pm #

    Good ones. 🙂

    I have been threatened by the author of the blog about the complete destruction of mother earth and the end of human race on earth….I m feeling helpless, please take your valued and expert look & reassure me.
