CLIMATE CHANGE ALARMISTS

In 2015, then President Barack Obama signed into law, the Clean Power Plan to slow the rate of climate change or global warming. It was to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants. According to townhall.com, it was the first action of the United States government to do so.

Earlier in the week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order, directing the EPA to abolish this legislation. As you can imagine, the left went bonkers.

John Hawkins, in an article on townhall.com, entitled, 5 Reasons It’s Dumb to Panic Over Global Warming, listed quotes from some well-known liberals. Van Jones, Communist, and Obama’s special advisor for Green Jobs, was quoted as saying, “Trump may have just signed a death warrant for our planet (at least, a planet that is livable for humans). And the lies he told to justify it have real consequences for real Americans, her and now.”

Another quote, this time from our friend, Michael More: “Historians in the near future will mark today, March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began, thanks 2 Donald Trump…Trump has signed orders killing all of Obama’s climate change regulations. The EPA is prohibited henceforth from focusing on climate change.”

Mr. Hawkins points out that the left doesn’t worry about deficits, terrorists, health care costs, out of control spending, teachers’ unions’ strong-hold over public education, the government’s out of control spending, etc. Instead they freak out and the possibility of the planet burning 100 years from now.

The 5 reasons not to panic over climate change/global warming are as follows:

1.There is Actually No Scientific Consensus on Global Warming. Whenever any of us conservatives indicates that climate change/global warming is a hoax, particularly man-made climate change, the left always throws out that 97% figure representing the percentage of scientists that think that man-made climate change is real. Mr. Hawkins says that’s simply untrue, and reflects that, “A 2012 poll of American Meteorological Society members also reported a diversity of opinion. Of the 1862 members who responded, 59% stated that human activity was the primary cause of global warming, and 11 percent attributed to the phenomenon to human activity and natural causes in about equal measure, while just under a quarter, 23 percent, said enough is not yet known to make a determination.” Then last year, it was found that nearly six in ten climate scientists didn’t adhere to the so-called consensus on man-made climate change, per a study by the Dutch government.
2.Even if Global Warming is Happening and Mankind is Responsible, it may still make Sense to do Nothing. Former Secretary of State John Kerry, called climate change, “perhaps the most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” and claims that unless we act, it could pose “the most catastrophic, grave threats in the history of human life.” Yet the UN Climate Panel found that the total cost of climate change by the 2070s is less than 2% of GCP. This means global warming is a problem, but is not by any means the end of the world. Its cost is equivalent to a single year of recession over the next 60 years. This comes from Bjorn Lomberg, of nationalpost.com in an article dated September 23, 2014. When you compare the threat, which we’re not sure is actually a threat, of climate change to what the world faces now, we acting like the person who is seriously injured in an automobile accident, but obsesses over the fact that her new Vera Wang dress was ruined.
3.Global Warming Theories are more Art than Science. Mr. Hawkins reminds us that we live in a world where scientists cannot tell us for sure whether it’s going to rain tomorrow, but we still have people assuring us of what the weather is going to be like in 100 years. Climate models used by scientists to predict how much human activities will warm the planet have been over-predicting global warming for the last six decades, according to a recent working paper by climate scientists, Michaels and Knappenberger. Climate models used to predict global warming have been consistently and egregiously wrong for decades.
4.We Don’t Have a Good Way to Even Know What Temperatures Were Centuries Ago. You often hear claims that every year is supposedly the “hottest on record.” Yet, we only started doing meaningful worldwide measurements in 1880, and many of those early numbers are considered to be unreliable. It’s been a mild winter in central Alabama. In fact, there have been very few days that I wore a winter coat, but do work out of my home. There were probably some days that I just didn’t go outside. We broke and came close to breaking a number of records for highest temperature on a number of days. It seemed like most of those record-breaking or near record-breaking days went back to the early 1900s. This leads me to think that we many have been in a warm cycle similar to the one that some say we are in today, back then. Also, when I was growing up in the North Alabama town of Cullman, about sixty miles north of where I live now, we would have at least one three to six-inch snow every winter. That’s not happening now, although Cullman did have about a three-inch winter before last. When I was in high school, our regular football season ended the first week in November. For the last two or three games, it was always cold. Now it’s not, leaving me to conclude that our climate is cyclical.
5.We’re in the Middle of a Global Warming Pause. Mr. Hawkins questions how we can be in a pause if liberals are claiming that we just broke a new record with every passing year. Because these “record-breaking years” are within the statistical margin of error.

To a reasonable and prudent individual, the above should bring to the conclusion that the validity of climate change/global warming is unconfirmed and questionable. Yet, folks like Al Gore, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Gina McCarthy all have insisted on many different occasions that “it’s settled, climate change/global warming exists.

Furthermore, these are other far-left zealots won’t even acknowledge studies or new statistics that affirms otherwise.

I know you’re probably tired of reading this, but I’m not going to stop. If Democrats, liberals, progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves, were the champions of the middle class and lower income individuals they claim to be, they would jump at any chance to disprove climate change, and not be in such a whirlwind to snatch us off of fossil fuels, a source of inexpensive and reliable energy, and transition us to the more expensive and unreliable green energy sources.

PART OF THE FABRIC OF THE HISTORY OF OUR TIME

That’s what former White House Correspondent and Fox New Director, Brit Hume said about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress yesterday morning. That’s a flowery description, but my thoughts are that Mr. Hume was implying that the speech would be part of the history of the United States. I agree with him.
The current President did not attend the address, nor did anyone in his administration. Also, a number of Congressional Democrats did not attend. Even though all three branches of our government, Administrative, Legislative, and Judicial are equal, the current President indicated that Congressional Leadership was out of line in asking the Prime Minister to come to the United States and speak to Congress.

The President initially indicated that he would not attend the speech because the Prime Minister was up for re-election in Israel and he didn’t want to be an influence to the political process there. He also indicated that he felt that the Prime Minister’s visiting the United States at this time could jeopardize the negotiations of Secretary of State, John Kerry, is currently having with Iran regarding their nuclear program.

The fact that we are even having talks with the likes of Iran takes my breath away. Does this President really think that he can come to an agreement with this rogue state, one that this rogue state will abide by? It’s just unfathomable. None of know what concessions we are giving Iran and the President says, “Just trust me.” I don’t trust this President! I agree with everything Rudy Giuliani says. This President’s objective is to destroy the United States of America as we know it.

I think we better take note of this day, March 3, 2015 (3/3/15). The United States of America is at a fork in the road. Will we make an agreement with Iran whereby we allow them to have limited centrifuges to enrich uranium in exchange for their going up against ISIS, knowing they won’t honor it or honor any agreement that we make with them. Or will we maintain our relationship with our most prominent ally, Israel, and seek to put an end to Iran’s nuclear program in its entirety? Signing on to a bad agreement with Iran will certainly lay the groundwork for our demise. Those of us who study the Bible and know the Lord, are aware of what happens to those who turn their backs on Israel.

As I sit here at my computer late at night writing this, I’m afraid of what’s going to happen. When he was campaigning in 2008, this President said that he would engage in talks with anyone. And now he’s doing it. In his six plus years as President, he has hurt this country and its citizens in numerous ways. Nothing he has done has been positive for any of us as individuals, nor has anything he’s done been positive for the country as a whole. His presidency has been an unmitigated disaster. So, is he trying to achieve some sort of a legacy? I can’t imagine why he would care. He’s accomplishing what he set out to do and that is to destroy the United States of America. When he leaves office in January 2017, I believe that he will be whisked off to some undisclosed location to live out the rest of his life, being supported by those powers that put him in office.
