Russian Wildfires & Global Warming Propaganda

Quoting The [propaganda of the purely political] New York Times:
“ ‘If you ask me as a person, do I think the Russian heat wave has to do with climate change, the answer is yes,’ said Gavin Schmidt, a climate researcher with NASA in New York. ‘If you ask me as a scientist whether I have proved it, the answer is no — at least not yet.’ ”
For the uninitiated, Gavin Schmidt (of is arguably the single most overt propagandist in the religious cult of Man Made Catastrophic Global Warming Hysteria.

Yet, even Gavin admits there is no science which links the Russian wildfires to climate change of any variety, much less man made climate change.

But, where so-called “journalists” [and certain unscrupulous “scientists”] are concerned, science and evidence be damned! It’s full speed ahead with the hysteria mongering purely political propaganda!

Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. -- professor of environmental studies -- has devoted much of his career to examining the link (or lack thereof) between climate change and the consequences of weather disasters. Dr. Pielke notes (I inserted the link):
“This [Gavin’s absurd NYT comment] neatly sums up the first of two reasons why I think that the current debate over whether greenhouse gas emissions caused/exacerbated/influenced recent disasters around the world is a fruitless debate. It is not a debate that can be resolved empirically, but rather depends upon hunches, speculation and beliefs…

there should be no ambiguity in the fact that researchers who have looked for a signal of increasing GHGs
[Green House Gases] in increasing disaster losses (whether measured in dollars or in lives) have yet to see such a signal. It would be scientifically incorrect to claim that GHGs have been shown to account for any portion of the damage or suffering resulting from recent events.”
For the record…
Despite his empirical realism with respect to the fact that there is no quantifiable link between climate change and weather induced disasters, Dr. Pielke advocates for government intervention to reduce CO2 emissions. But, Dr. Pielke has, to date, failed to honor the promise he made to me on 7/31/09 to explain in his blog why he believes this is a good idea. Perhaps this is because he does not think it fruitful to wage a political battle by challenging ‘deniers’ on matters of science. Personally, I think Dr. Pielke knows he is promoting an indefensible agenda. I think Dr. Pielke knows that he cannot prevail in any open and honest debate. But, no AGW alarmist can. That is why -- to a person -- they almost always avoid any such open debate.

I was invited to participate in a tele-town hall conference with NH representative Carol Shea-Porter (D) last year.

The screener asked me what I would like to discuss. I said "how about climate change?"

Well, "what are you going to ask" questioned the screener?

I said "Oh I don't know, I just want to see where Carol stands on the issue. I know there are alot of people concerned about climate change."

Sure enough, after about 5 minutes, it was my turn.

"Okay, we have Rich from Merrimack with a question regarding global warming."

I chimed in...

"Over the last 100 years, it is believed by some that man has contributed approximately 100 parts per million carbon dioxide to our atmosphere. We have geological and anthropological evidence that the earth has been warmer in the past. My question is: Do you know how much warming is attributed to 100 ppm CO2?"

[sound of crickets chirping]

First words out of her mouth: Ughhhh... no??? She then went on about melting Arctic sea ice and polar bears. Unfortuantely -- they didn't give me a chance to follow up. I wonder why?

These people want to place a numerical value on carbon emmi$$ion$ - yet have no idea what the numerical value is when it comes to CO2 induced warming.

Global warming hysteria = FAIL.

I recently had a similar tele-townhall experience with United States Senator Mark Udall (D-CO). Udall propagated the bald faced lie that the USA has only 2% of the world's oil supply. I informed the screener that I wanted to challenge that assertion. I was not afforded the opportunity.

In my opinion, Udall and his team knew he had lied and would not allow his lie to be exposed. Tele-townhalls are nothing but a cowardly propaganda tool used by tyrants to control the message and silence the opposition.

To make matters worse, Udall then posted a recording of what he alleged to be the entire tele-townhall. I was on the phone the entire time and I know goddamn well that what he posted is an edited version of what was already a carefully screened event.

The Dims are MORE TYRANNICAL than King George (of England)!
