Hurricane Matthew is creating a wave of destruction through Haiti, Cuba and the states that may be in the storm’s path are battening down the hatches and preparing for the worst, just in case. You can be sure that the damage will be blamed on global warming. Everything unpleasant has been — blamed on global warming.
President Obama has used his bully pulpit to bully the world into using governmental power to save the world from human-caused “climate change.” From his nomination acceptance speech in June 2008 (“This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”) to every State of the Union address, he has lectured us on the “greatest crisis facing mankind.” He’s even gone so far as to force the military to start moving to clean energy to power our armed forces.
The results of his passion for saving us all from the perils of climate change have meant forcing the closure of coal-fired power plants, putting coal-mines out of business, and the miners on the dole, blocking pipelines, wasting billions on “clean energy” sources that cannot possibly run a real electrical grid at reasonable cost or actually supply the electricity that runs our economy.
The force of law came on December 15, 2009 when the Environmental Protection Agency issued its Green House Gas (GHG) Endangerment Finding which has driven significant and costly regulations beginning with CO2. From page 47 of the Endangerment Finding’s Technical Support Document:
The attribution of observed climate change to anthropogenic activities is based on multiple lines of evidence. The first line of evidence arises from the basic physical understanding of the effects of changing concentrations of GHGs, natural factors, and other human impacts on the climate system. The second line of evidence arises from indirect, historical estimates of past climate changes that suggest that the changes in global surface temperature over the last several decades are unusual (Karl et al, 2009). The third line of evidence arises from the use of computer-based climate models to simulate the likely patterns of response of the climate system to different forcing mechanisms (both natural and anthropogenic).
But they never really checked to see if their “lines of evidence” stand up. On September 19, the ICECAP website posted the following: “The most important assumption in EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding has been conclusively invalidated.”
The news is that a major new work of research, from a large group of top scientists and mathematicians, asserts that EPA’s “lines of evidence,” and thus its Endangerment Finding, have been scientifically invalidated.
These analysis results [in this Report] would appear to leave very, very little doubt but that EPA’s claim of a Tropical Hot Spot (THS), caused by rising atmospheric CO2 levels, simply does not exist in the real world. Also critically important, even on an all-other-things-equal basis, this analysis failed to find that the steadily rising Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations have had a statistically significant impact on any of the 13 critically important temperature time series data analyzed.
Thus, the analysis results invalidate each of the Three Lines of Evidence in its CO2 Endangerment Finding. Once EPA’s THS assumption is invalidated, it is obvious why the climate models they claim can be relied upon, are also invalid. And, these results clearly demonstrate – 13 times in fact – that once just the ENSO impacts on temperature data are accounted for, there is no “record setting” warming to be concerned about. In fact, there is no ENSO-Adjusted Warming at all. These natural ENSO impacts are shown in this research to involve both changes in solar activity and the well-known 1977 Pacific Climate Shift.
Expect whatever damages are perpetrated by Hurricane Matthew to be blamed on global warming. Expect a long, vicious political battle over the validation of the invalidation. The global warming enthusiasts are not going to give up easily. They are dedicated to catastrophe.
“Manmade global warming is a danger to humanity and the environment and it must be stopped.” That notion has funded many a career in climate science, departments of Environmental Science in universities, huge and glamorous meetings of the cognoscenti in the world’s most beautiful resorts, and many a political career.
Although top UN people in charge of the UN climate effort have admitted that their goal is the destruction of capitalism and the transfer of wealth from the capitalist nations to the undeveloped world, and doesn’t really have anything to do with a little warming — that massive political organization is not going to throw up their hands and say “nevermind.” Expect a war.
The EPA’s Clean Power Plan, a (devastating to the country) power grab by an out of control crooked agency is now working its way through the courts. Hillary has already promised coal country that she will see that they are shut down, and the country is electrified by “clean power.”
ADDENDUM: President Obama was out on the South Lawn yesterday celebrating the Paris Climate Agreement, which “would still not be sufficient to deal with the pace of warming that we’re seeing in the atmosphere.” and “This week we’ll begin negotiations on an aviation agreement, an international aviation agreement, where all airlines and major carriers around the world begin to figure out how they can reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that they’re emitting, which can make a big difference.” (like Air Force One is actually two 747s to transport the president and all his staff and the helicopters and armored cars). Today he was out on the south Lawn again talking about how global warming is causing disasters like Hurricane Matthew.
Told you so.
