Human-caused Global Warming / Global Climate Change: Still a hoax by any name

See Where’s the warming? « Hot Air.  Ask yourself, why is the media so keen to be on board with the Global warming fraud? Answer: Follow the money and the power.

Global greenhouse gas emissions have risen even faster during the past decade than predicted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other international agencies. According to alarmist groups, this proves global warming is much worse than previously feared. The increase in emissions “should shock even the most jaded negotiators” at international climate talks currently taking place in Bonn, Germany, the UK Guardian reports. But there’s only one problem with this storyline; global temperatures have not increased at all during the past decade.

The evidence is powerful, straightforward, and damning. NASA satellite instruments precisely measuring global temperatures show absolutely no warming during the past the past 10 years. This is the case for the Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, including the United States. This is the case for the Arctic, where the signs of human-caused global warming are supposed to be first and most powerfully felt. This is the case forglobal sea surface temperatures, which alarmists claim should be sucking up much of the predicted human-induced warming. This is the case for the planet as a whole.

If atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions are the sole or primary driver of global temperatures, then where is all the global warming? We’re talking 10 years of higher-than-expected increases in greenhouse gases, yet 10 years of absolutely no warming. That’s 10 years of nada, nunca, nein, zero, and zilch.

Also ask yourself why this will be one of the few promises Obama will keep:

Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

And electricity prices won’t just hurt one of your bills.  The impact of higher energy costs will impact nearly every element of the economy.

Have you had a lot of fun watching the price of gasoline shoot out of sight this year at the pump?  That will be just the appetizer.  Thanks to new regulations from the Obama administration, power companies will shut down a significant number of coal-fired plants by 2014, and without any other reliable sources of mass-produced electricity, consumers will see their bills go up as much as 60% (via Instapundit andNewsalert):

Consumers could see their electricity bills jump an estimated 40 to 60 percent in the next few years.

The reason: Pending environmental regulations will make coal-fired generating plants, which produce about half the nation’s electricity, more expensive to operate. Many are expected to be shuttered.

The increases are expected to begin to appear in 2014, and policymakers already are scrambling to find cheap and reliable alternative power sources. If they are unsuccessful, consumers can expect further increases as more expensive forms of generation take on a greater share of the electricity load.

Elections matter, folks.  A radical leftist community organizer was elected Senator and then President and this is all part of his plan: More government control of everything.

You’d think they’d be alarmed that so many companies are claiming they’ll stop providing healthcare to employees when ObamNeycare is fully implemented, but you’d be wrong.  That is exactly what they want: More decisions controlled by the government.  Because you can totally trust them to have your long-term best interests at heart, right?

  1. For anyone fortunate enough to ask a politician/candidate at a town hall meeting, here are a few suggested questions:

    How cool do you want the world to be? What is the ideal temperature for the earth?

    What are the criteria for determining the ideal temperature of the earth?

    Would a modest increase in the temperature of the planet necessarily be bad? Are there any potential benefits?

    How can we ensure that efforts to stabilize the earth’s temperature don’t backfire, resulting in a larger-than-intended drop in the earth’s average temperature?

    At what temperature would the earth be too cold?

    Can you be sure that reductions in CO2 emissions will result in a significant and helpful change in temperatures?

    What if industrial and automotive CO2 emissions are cut to nearly zero and the earth continues to warm…what do we do then?

    Some have said that “It’s not called American warming, it’s called global warming.” What if heavily industrialized nations manage to make painful cuts in CO2 emissions only to see those cuts dwarfed by increases in emissions by China and other developing economies?

    How long should man try to control the world’s average temperature?
    A. For the next hundred years?
    B. For the next thousand years?
    C. Forever?

    Can we be absolutely confident that global climate changes aren’t mostly the result of that giant fireball in the sky ― you know ― the sun?

    Scientists are very good at using statistical analysis to calculate certainty. Approximately how certain are we that we have the correct answers to global warming questions?
    A. 50 percent?
    B. 80 percent?
    C. 95 percent?
