Yes, the New York Post tabloid owned by News Corp. There's no way this information could be misleading of outright false.

Oh I'm sorry, I was expecting a scientific study.  I'm sure this journalist is much more educated than the thousands of climatologists around the world.

Michael Fumento is a journalist and attorney based in Colombia.

Well, that settles it.  He definitely knows what he's talking about...

Global warming doesn't exist.  It's 5 degrees outside right now.  Explain that, liberals!

FTA:  The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960.

The Philippines and much of Southeast Asia would disagree with you.

Oh, you mean the quietest in the  United States.  Well, that's a stupid thing to base a climate change argument off of.

MrEricSir: Same author has lots of wonderful reads.

Here he claims that the idea that hetrosexuals can get AIDS is a myth -- therefore who cares about AIDS?

Here he says stem cell research is a "scam" because in some cases you don't need stem cells for certain types of research.

Here he claims there aren't really any homeless vets, because someone once looked and couldn't find any. Therefore, fark homeless people.

Real quality journalism there. And not at all served up with a heavy-handed dose of bias, no sir!


And that wraps this up nicely.  Well done, sir.

The icepocalypse in Dallas was caused by moisture coming up from the warmed ocean. Less warming and it would have been less ice, or even just freezing temperatures.

Dear Subby, eabods. Science doesn't work that way. The evidence/data for climate change is solid, its one of the most studied scientific events or whatever you'd call it ever. Sure we don't have a clear idea of what the effects of climate change are going to be exactly, but that doesn't means climate change is automatically invalidated.

Well, it appears to be talking about the claim that hurricane activity would increase with global warming.  That claim actually is complete bullshiat, and always was.

They're still failing at logic forever by claiming that by association all the actual legitimate science is bad, though.

A complex system that is not fully understood isn't behaving as predicted?
That's weird.
 
2013-12-07 07:40:57 PM
Not having studied the subject I don't claim to know either way but artificial global warmingreminds me of the 'land bridges' controversy and also the claim that the universe is made of 95%  'dark matter'.

or example, it somehow wasn't front-page news that committed believers in man-made global warming recently admitted there's been no surface global warming for well over a decade

Is this true? Citation needed?

wildcardjack: The icepocalypse in Dallas was caused by moisture coming up from the warmed ocean.


And it sucked, too. It was 18° this morning and only got up to 25°. I know everyone from the northern states and the Midwest are laughing, but that's cold for this part of the US. Here's what my street looked like:

And that's ice, not snow. We got two inches of sleet that was mixed with freezing rain.

It's as stupid as saying any one particular weather event is proof of climate change as so many people often do.

The media also loves to hype things. A couple days after Haiyan many "news" outlets simply dropped the estimate that there could be 10,000 dead in the Philippines and just flat out said that 10,000 people had died, but in fact it is still under 6,000.  That's still a fark-ton fo casualties and it was still a devastating event but to point to any one particularly bad storm every few years and say "see?  Global Whargarrrrbl" is just as stupid as saying we didn't have any bad storms  (in the US) so there is no global warming.

Humans have been farking up space with artificial light.  There is no artificial light in outer space, and us humans have really been farking up space with it this whole damn time, and it is just getting worse and worse.  Have you seen those pictures from space?

epod.typepad.com

The only people that have not been farking up space with un-natural illumination is North Korea.  The UN and all lefties hand-in-hand demand, with emphasis, that you give all your money to the norks, um, the North Koreans.  Give your money to this man to carry it there, for what you evil people have been doing to fark up space:

traylor: What proof? Was there ever a proof?


No, but there's tons of evidence that Earth's climate is holding steady. Or if it's not holding steady, then it's only changing a little bit. Or if it's changing more than a little bit, then man had nothing to do with it. Or if man had something to do with it, then it doesn't matter because the climate is constantly changing. Or if it does matter, then there is nothing we can do about it because man is incapable of changing it back. Or if he is capable of changing it back then we shouldn't because that's messing with nature. Or if we should, we can't because it's too expensive. Or if it's not too expensive, then what good would it do if only some countries contributed while others didn't. Whatever, the science and media are wrong because they're liberal and you can take that to the bank.

It hasn't gotten about zero in 3 days here but yeah Dallas can have some awful ice.  Used to live there.

I'm about 60 ~ 70 miles north of Dallas. We're iced in.  As I live at the bottom of a valley, I can't leave my neighborhood.  I'm out of smokes and have just enough V to last the night.

stop it. people like you are why the evil libtard... Or wait was it tardpublicans... anyways people like you are why they stopped calling it global warming and started up with "climate change." That easy they can point at every storm and say "SEE!? We were RIGHT"
 
2013-12-07 09:51:32 PM
So, do you have an alternative hypothesis as to why the earth is warming? One that has a chance to get a consensus of scientists saying "Hey, that might be more plausible than factories pumping CO2 and god knows what else into the sky?" Yes? If so, then I will call you a skeptic.  Until then, you are only a denier who thinks poking holes in the prevailing theory makes yours true.

/Newsflash: It doesn't.
