Hurricane Joaquin? Blame It On Climate Change!


By Paul Homewood


Another cretinous report from the Daily Beast. It would be difficult for them to have got more wrong:

As Hurricane Joaquin devastates the Bahamas and feints toward the east coast of the United States, and as American communities hunker down for superstorm potential, the connection to climate change is already clear. What’s more, a new study shows there’s a lot more of this sort of thing to come.

Already, Joaquin is being compared in advance to Superstorm Sandy, which devastated so much of the Atlantic shore, including New York City, only three years ago.

Such frightening anticipation may—or may not—turn out to be justified in this case. Chances are growing that Joaquin will swing north and out to sea, but predictions keep changing and hurricanes don’t always cooperate with prognosticators.

Taking every precaution to prepare for heavy rainfall and flooding, the governors of Virginia…

Physicist Howard Hayden’s Disproof of Global Warming Claims

Quixotes Last Stand

October 27, 2009

The Honorable Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator
Environmental Protection Agency
1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, DC 20460

Dear Administrator Jackson:

I write in regard to the Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act, Proposed Rule, 74 Fed. Reg. 18,886 (Apr. 24, 2009), the so-called “Endangerment Finding.”

It has been often said that the “science is settled” on the issue of CO2 and climate. Let me put this claim to rest with a simple one-letter proof that it is false.

The letter is s, the one that changes model into models. If the science were settled, there would be precisely one model, and it would be in agreement with measurements.

Alternatively, one may ask which one of the twenty-some models…

Ready for this? “Climate scientists never claimed that CO2 is the only thing that is controlling the changes in global temperature.”

Quixotes Last Stand

We called this.  We called this a long long time ago.  As soon as the warming paused and kept pausing and they had to change the name of their religion from Global Warming to Climate Change, we KNEW they would eventually backpeddle on CO2 and here it is.

While he continues to push the global warming theory, Dr. Kevin Cowtan acknowledges many things that so called “deniers” have been pointing out right from the beginning.

First in this video, this gentleman acknowledges the pause, (which they’ve denied for so many years), then he goes on to explain there are other factors which control our climate (again, exactly what all of us skeptics have been saying the entire time), he also admits that the computer models failed to take into account other factors and then, he makes the astounding statement that climate scientists never claimed that CO2 is the only thing that is…

For Easy Reference: 100 Reasons Why Climate Change is Natural

Quixotes Last Stand

Tip o’ the hat to C. Berg for this article.

HERE are the 100 reasons, released in a dossier issued by the European Foundation, why climate change is natural and not man-made:

1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.

2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

4) After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

5) Throughout the Earth’s history, temperatures have often been warmer than now and CO2 levels have often been higher – more than ten times as high.

6) Significant changes…

New Ozone Regulations Will Save Lots of Imaginary People

Watts Up With That?

Shaghai-air-pollution The skyline of Shanghai, China showing air pollution

Guest essay by Charles Battig

Now I can finally relax, take a deep breath, and breathe easier.  The Environmental Protection Agency, an aggressive arm of the nanny government, has just issued new air quality standards that mandate that the new “safe” level of ozone in the air we breathe shall be lowered from the current 75 parts per billion to 70 ppb.  I feel better already, perhaps.

I also feel better for all the theoretical lives that will be saved, according to EPA sponsored studies such as this one.  However, my joy is tempered by the realization that  those are not real lives saved – rather, they are “estimated deaths saved,” as in “We applied health impact assessment methodology to estimate numbers of deaths and other adverse health outcomes that would have been avoided during 2005, 2006, and 2007 if…
