Left is a photo of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of its first terrorist bombing on February 26, 1993 20 years to the day of Chuck Hagel's confirmation as Secretary of Defense. Will America suffer a massive terror attack during his reign? Or see  a menacing resurgence of Al Qaida which I believe began last September 11th with the attack on Benghazi?

THE SICK, DEPRESSING,  MISERABLE
 

Chuck Hagel is the right Secretary of Defense at the right time in history serving the right President and administration for completely destroying the Pax Americana (and greatly weakening America) and replacing it with a New World Disorder of terror, war and economic turmoil. That the weak-on-terror, Israel-hating, unfit to head Defense Hagel was confirmed by the Senate on the 20th anniversary of the first jihadist bombing of the World Trade Center (killing six, wounding a thousand and costing billions) is a dire warning of things to come for the safety, security and defense of our nation and the stability and peace of the Middle East-from which we are insanely and dangerously withdrawing.

40,000 RALLY FOR CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION

Climate Rally Washington 

After polluting the planet for generations with galactic amounts of poisonous CO2 all that the AGW movement can muster is 40,000 angry fists raging against the industrial-capitalist machine. It globally warmed my Ice Age heart to see such a massive display of left-wing ignorance and impotency. Since they believe that carbonizing the atmosphere will cause the catastrophe of waterworld or worse then they better head for the hills (or build huge arks as in the film 2012) because they're failing to frighten humanity with their bull.

When I saw yesterday's anti-American rally in DC for saving humanity from the Keystone pipeline the first thing I noticed was how awfully cold the global warmists were (the temp was 13 degrees with the wind chill factor) and asked myself 'How could this be? How could the temperature not be 70 or 80 degrees after 200 years of pumping zillions of tons of man-made, heat trapping, life-destroying gases into the air? In fact with sensitive, compassionate global warming activists demonizing deniers like me as worse than Jew killing Nazis the world by now should be one vast crematorium or gas chamber with humanity being massively gased or fried to death.

 Moreover, as the 40,000 climatarians (humanitarians against climate change) raged against America-that's approximately one angry protester for every plug-in hybrid sold last year falling short of Obama's predicted 1 million-I wondered why they weren't protesting in New Delhi or Beijing when India and China are XLing the US as the world's worst polluters? Does America being a predominately White Christian Capitalist country have something to do with it? Or is it that once upon a time we were White, Christian and Capitalist but still unatoned for our sins?

Right on Apollo. More Americans believe in ghouls, zombies, vampires and unicorns than believe the AGW rubbish.

What is "short" is the AGW movement: Short on truth, short on science, short on honesty, short on integrity, and soon to be short-lived.

Loved your spot on post Apollo. You might be unaware of this but despite playing a key role in advancing climate change hysteria, the United Kingdom’s National Weather Service, known as the Met Office, quietly released a report last week conceding that so-called “global warming” actually stopped more than 15 years ago. The startling admission shows once again that United Nations theories and climate models are wildly inaccurate at best, experts say, meaning multi-trillion dollar schemes to deal with alleged human-caused “climate change” are at the very least severely misguided. Climate Change is nothing but more fear mongering from left-wing lobbyists.

Apollo's post is spot wrong. And Justified Defiance's post is a disingenuous talking point. David Rose, a UK journalist known for his parroting of denialist lines, wilfully misinterpreted a Met Office report. "Disingenuous", by the way, is being polite.
 
My reply
 
Rose did nothing of the sort. Global surface temperatures (confounding UN climate models) have been statistically steady for 16 years despite a huge, massive 10%- 20% increase in man made atmospheric CO2 and other "heat trapping" gases. Coinciding with this finding is the discovery by solar physicists of sun spots vanishing from the surface of the sun. When this last happened in 1645 it was the dawn of a 70 year Ice Age. Why shouldn't this phenomena be happening again?
 
 palindrom's reply
 

But it does not follow Apollo that the present warming is not anthropogenic.  It is happening almost exactly as predicted given the spectral properties of CO2.  The sun isn't doing much of anything out of the ordinary at the moment, so you can't blame the sun (the other planets, contrary to propagandists, are not warming).

 My reply

Nor, for that matter, is there an unusual and dangerous warming trend-except in the overheated brains of AWG activists who are on fire with messianic fervor fancying themselves world saviors fighting for the survival of the humanity. How noble! How brave! AND HOW WRONG!
 
polindrom replies
 
 Go have a look at William Nordhaus' article in the New York Review of Books (online), entitled "Why the Global Warming Skeptics are Wrong".  Look at the first figure.  I dare you.
 
 My reply
 

Reading Nordhaus' article one gets the impression that for him the world began in 1880 (his starting point for measuring global temperature changes); and that all prior history going back thousands of years is of no importance or scientific value. Truth is it has no political value for global warming alarmists and their fanatical green energy agenda. For within the context of thousands of years of earth history the 0.8  rise in temperature since 1880 is lower compared to prior periods.

This is what I mean: In his movie "An Inconvenient Truth" Big Oil Al Jeezera Gore uses a wall-size chart of climate change (taken from National Geographic) that shows 5 cycles of Global Warming at intervals of approximately 100,000 years over the last 450,000 years, with long Ice Ages in between. The previous 4 cycles were shorter and warmer than the one we're now in (the Holocene) which began about 12,000 years ago, and was warmest about 8,000 years ago, warmer than it is now.
 
What this proves is that Global Warming and Ice Ages are a naturally recurring cyclic phenomenon. The data shows this cycle going back millions of years. Global Warming and Ice Ages are very real, but this does not prove we cause them, or that we can do anything about them. We can do nothing except endure them and what bad weather events they create.

IS THE CURRENT CYCLE OF GLOBAL WARMING INCONVENIENTLY OVER?

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS' TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

2013-02-17 11:30 --IS THE CURRENT CYCLE OF GLOBAL WARMING INCONVENIENTLY OVER? 

 
 Is Mother Nature about to put Al Gore and the global warming movement in deep freeze?
 
 Several years ago solar physicists from the US National Solar Observatory and US Air Force Research Lab (see) discovered the vanishing of sun spots on the Sun's surface indicating as it did in 1645 a lowering of magnetic solar activity (heat and energy output) and possibly the dawn of a mini ice age-which climate change catastrophists like Al Gore predicted could not possibly happen without a drastic reduction in atmospheric, "heat trapping" CO2 emissions. Indeed, from 1645 to 1715 the earth cooled down for 70 years until the vanished sun spots reappeared accompanied by a rise in solar activity (just before the polluting Industrial Age) with our planet entering a new global warming cycle-which have leftists in an apocalyptic frenzy of coming global doom.
 
It will be fascinating to see in the years ahead if climate history repeats itself and that the disappearance of sun spots is an omen of a global cooling trend. If it is watch alarmists take credit for it by claiming that their efforts to reduce CO2 emissions were successful, and that the good work must continue by doubling down on reducing emissions.
 
But there's more bad news for alarmists. Defying their dire predictions of a dangerous, ceaseless, linear rise of global temperatures-until Antarctica melts and  the Earth becomes a water world of seafaring boat people-is a 16 year period of static global surface temperatures despite a 10% to 20% increase of atmospheric CO2 and other "noxious" gases and fumes (see and see). Now when the planet was transitioning from the prior global warming cycle to the start of the last ice age (368 years ago) was there a period of static surface temperatures like there is today? We don't know as the science of measuring the earth's temperature began 150 years ago. Be that as it may, the temperature standstill of the last 16 years prove that CO2 emissions are not driving the climate as alarmists suppose.
 

Snow returns to Kilimanjaro after several years of drought.

 But getting back to other possible signs that Mother Earth is moving into a new ice age the cruelest cut of all to people like Gore-who Nature must truly abhor -is the return of snow to Mt. Kilimanjaro whose snowless peaks Gore pointed to (in An Inconvenient Truth along with other optical tricks) as evidence of a coming global warming disaster (see). The dishonesty of Gore at the time was so blatantly evident because he couldn't point to the same phenomena on other elevated mountains like the Himalayas or Rockies.
 
Now are vanishing sun spots, the flattening of global temperatures and snow gracing Kilimanjaro signs that a new ice age is at hand? It doesn't bode well for Global Warming Alarmists like Gore and Obama and their politically failing movement that's been in decline since the Climategate scandal in 2009. Indeed, with a 1000 coal burning plants coming on line in the next few years (mostly out of China and India (see)) and disappointing electric car sales (41,000 in the last few years when Obama expected a million*) Warmunists better pray to Gaia that their dreadful forecasts are wrong because humanity has put them on ignore, and trillions upon trillions of man caused tons of greenhouse gases will be pumped into our atmosphere soon. In the meantime you politically incorrect and guilty free deniers enjoy driving your SUVs.
 
*In 2011 out of 13 million new car sales only 17,000 were plug ins (see).

CLIMATE ALARMISTS DESPAIR OVER LESS THAN DEVASTATING NEMO

Don't think so. It's climate change crazies who are doping up their sagging global warming hysteria with steroids, and doubling down on predictions of doom because after 16 years of no acceleration in global temperatures they're losing.

Three disappointed New York lefties wondering where the horrific snow storm went that would reenergize their faltering movement.
 
It was supposed to be the super storm of winter storms (all previous storms on steroids) that would reenergize the dwindling Climate Change Movement; but it wasn't super or steroidial enough. With an out of control humanity (and a shameless, polluting United States of gas guzzling, SUV driving, obese f*rting citizens) pumping zillions of weather deranging tons of CO2 into the air Climate Change alarmists were expecting, and hoping for, the record-breaking, life killing snow storm of the ages-the colossus of bad weather events that would shock poor, stupid, ignorant Americans out of sleep finally waking them to the apocalyptic peril they are in. But deaf to alarmists' prayers for crushing disaster a cruel, ungrateful Mother Nature instead whipped up a storm that fell short of the great northeast blizzard of 78-when global cooling was the craze and we were headed toward an icy grave where the oceans would freeze over instead of downing us to death. 

Nemo set off more climate change alarm bells
before it struck than afterwards.

And here we are in the aftermath of Nemo with Americans dumber than ever continuing in climate sin; and alarmists more alarmed than ever not for the fate of the earth but the fortunes of their crackpot cause that's headed for extinction; w
ithout Nature massively intervening, ramping up bad weather events to never seen levels of destruction, there's no one and nothing that can save them.

It was a dog of a blizzard
for howling global warming mutts barking up the wrong tree again . What will be their next fit of climate change insanity?

IS THIS THE NORTH POLE MOVING SOUTH DUE TO THE MAYAN POLAR SHIFT THAT HAPPENED IN DECEMBER?
 
 
THANK GOD FOR DIRTY ENERGY.
IF IT WEREN'T FOR MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING WE'D HAVE 48 INCHES OF SNOW.
 
 
 It's times like this I wish there was some truth to climate change hysteria. Where is man-made global warming when we need it? Why have global temperatures been static for 16 years? Perhaps if we double down on the burning of fossil fuels we can overwhelm nature with pollution and create the runaway greenhouse effect warned about by warmers, and avoid bad weather events like this in the future.
 
NO MORE NEMOS!
 
GIVE GLOBAL WARMING A CHANCE!
