You go, girl!
Senator John McCain’s choice of a running mate, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, has questioned the science behind predictions of sea ice loss linked to global warming.
Last month, the state of Alaska under Palin’s guidance sued Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne in an attempt to reverse his decision to list polar bears as a threatened species. Palin said that scientists’ predictions that global warming would eliminate the ice where the bears live in summer were unreliable.
Al Gore says 20 feet, the UN IPCC says maybe a few inches. But, no one really knows the true answer. On the flip side, if the climahysterics force a cooler climate on us through their silly measures, sea heights would decrease, and more fresh water would be locked in ice. That is known as “bad.” And, so far, despite the alarmist, and psychic, reports earlier this year, we have not seen a total loss of the sea ice (plenty of wonkiness thru a google search, too.)
A government commission was presenting its recommendations Wednesday for how the Netherlands must strengthen its water defenses to combat global warming’s potentially devastating effects.
Two-thirds of the country’s 16 million people already live below sea level. The Netherlands’ political history and even its name, which means the “lowlands,” have been shaped by its location at the delta created by the Rhine and other major European rivers.
Here’s an idea: move somewhere that isn’t below sea level.
The global warming is leading to tropical cyclones becoming stronger and stronger, a new study says.
This bolsters the theory already put forward that global warming is a contributing factor in increasing intensity of hurricanes in the Atlantic over last 30 years.
Um, even the UN IPCC won’t commit to that. Matter of fact, they said there was really no proof at all behind that, despite the alarmism from people like Al Gore. But, hey, I guess we never had strong hurricanes before, such as during cooler periods.
