Your global warming, er, climate change update

The Gorebots are not in a happy place today and the latest update on our warming changing climate are posted:

The global temperature has fallen .653°C (from +0.554 in March 2010 to -0.099 in March 2011) in just one year. That’s a magnitude nearly equivalent to the agreed upon global warming signal agreed upon by the IPCC. It is quite a sharp drop.

According to the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global surface temperature increased by 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 20th century

Oh noes.

For those who prefer charts, try this:

uah_march2011

So when they try to limit the EPA’s power to "regulate" Greenhouse gasses today in the Senate via the McConnell/Inhofe amendment, tell your Senator to vote for the amendment.

  • In a perfect world, the EPA would be FIRST on a long list of federal agencies and departments to be killed off.
    There is no reason any longer for a Dept. Of Agriculture in the U.S., for instance.
    This would go far to reinstate the Constitution.

  • The bloom is off the bull**** yet again.

    But it’s a belief system now, so we’ll just have to wait for a heat wave for the next masked procession through the streets.

    • She DOES like her Scripture, doesn’t she?  Unless its a Republican quoting it (“RIGHT-WING THEOCRACY!!!”), or somebody points out those inconvenient passages about abortion, homosexuality, divorce, and anything else that conflicts with the canon of modern liberal socialism.

    • Back to the old “Old folks eating cat food” diatribe?
      Let’s see: Cat Food = $3 for a 2oz can=> $24 / pound. Yeah, typical leftist UNREALITY.

  • http://michellemalkin.com/2011/04/06/document-drop-epa-minions-hard-at-work-on-shutdown-fear-mongering/
    Michelle has the EPA pukes emailing each other on how best to politicize the potential shut-down.
    These people do not work for me.

  • BOOOOOO – old people will starve!  Children will die from chromahexadypentaloximalicdiphynelinbenzinestrichnitrate poisoning, wild birds will stop singing in mid song, geese will drop out of the sky and your refrigerator will steal all your Blue Ray disks and hide them in your toilet tank!  The sun will rise in the east!  It will set in the West!  and it will do this between sunrise and sunset EVERY DAY until the EPA receives funding!

  • You can’t make this stuff up …
    I’ve been reading for years now that as America becomes “bluer” disaster is around the corner.  Now scientists concur.
    I guess those in those “red” fly-over states can feel better now.

  • Drudge has a link to this:

    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/nbc-s-brokaw-saudis-so-unhappy-obama-adm#

    Which claims the Saudis are so happy with Hope and Change they are looking to enhance ties with Russia and China.

    Isn’t it great our leader isn’t some dumn Texas cowboy?

  • I can see having the EPA as an agency of government, but the only persons that should have standing to challenge environmental laws and regulations should be the businesses and individuals who bear the brunt of the EPA actions, and not special leftwing interest environmental groups. If nothing else is done, but to revoke their standing to sue, the EPA environment would improve a thousand fold.

  • Nobody studies geology anymore, what the hell is the Pleistocene anyway, ice-ages, baloney … we don’t have no stinkin’ ice-ages!!! The “next” ice-age started 2,000 years ago so you see dumbo, there have been no ice-ages is what the claim is, forgetting about interglacials ending with sea-level going down and the Wisconsin ended 15,000 years ago, duh, musta’ been a MBA doin’ that, they’ll claim anything for a dollar.

  • A bit late to the party, but I would like to draw your attention to this remarkable column by well-known gorebot George Monbiot.  It would appear that, with regards to the horrors (horrors, I say!) of nuclear power and atomic radiation, he has had his eyes opened about the flagrant, ongoing, and near-universal dishonesty of what was until very recently HIS OWN SIDE:

    Over the past fortnight I’ve made a deeply troubling discovery. The anti-nuclear movement to which I once belonged has misled the world about the impacts of radiation on human health. The claims we have made are ungrounded in science, unsupportable when challenged and wildly wrong. We have done other people, and ourselves, a terrible disservice.

    http://www.monbiot.com/2011/04/04/evidence-meltdown/

    Now, Monbiot finishes his column with the usual rant that us nasty ol’ global warming climate change deniers are the ones who are USUALLY the ones “[f]ailing to provide sources, refuting data with anecdote, cherry-picking studies, scorning the scientific consensus, [and] invoking a cover-up to explain it”, but it is to his credit that he not only honestly reports his epiphany about the dishonesty of the anti-nuke crowd, but makes the very reasonable statement that “[w]e have a duty to base our judgements on the best available information. This is not just because we owe it to other people to represent the issues fairly, but also because we owe it to ourselves not to squander our lives on fairytales”.

    Good for you, George.

    And what a surprise for me, too: a liberal who actually has a sense of honesty AND of honor.  I did not think it possible.

    • To that point – anyone ever notice the Japanese didn’t move Hiroshima (then) and Nagasaki to new locations?
       
      So, we can assume, with the technologies and safety features available in 1945 and essentially unaware of the dangers of radiation…they rebuilt cities on top of the place where atomic devices were detonated.
       
      I’d like to chat about it more, but I need to run and take my iodide tablets, Fukushima is practically in my backyard you know, I can feel the radioactive isotopes all the way over here in Central Texas.
       

  • How is it that this topic is still under debate? Isn’t this a scientific thing? .. which means there should be some kind of substantial evidence for everyone to agree on. It’s hot and then it’s cold. The weather’s been changing so rapidly in the last few years. I read on http://www.voteiq.com/hot-topics/climate-change-facts that more than 33% of our greenhouse emissions come from the US’s electric power plants. So much pollution, so little time.
