Oh Noes: Hotcoldwetdry Changing US Daily Life

Yet another scary report by climate astrologers who refuse to change their own lives to carbon neutral ones (via Tom Nelson)

(AP) Global warming is already changing America from sea to rising sea and is affecting how Americans live, a massive new federally commissioned report says.

A special panel of scientists convened by the government issued Friday a 1,146-page draft report that details in dozens of ways how climate change is already disrupting the health, homes and other facets of daily American life. It warns that those disruptions will increase in the future.

“Climate change affects everything that you do,” said report co-author Susan Cutter, director of the Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute at the University of South Carolina. “It affects where you live, where you work and where you play and the infrastructure that you need to do all these things. It’s more than just the polar bears.”

Yeah, the weather has always affected those things. I like warmer weather with milder winters, and scorching, humid summers do not bother me because of that awesome invention of the air conditioner, hence, I live in North Carolina. Sure, we have to deal with hurricanes and tornadoes, along with heavy thunderstorm activity now and then. Such is life on earth: weather happens.

Oh, and polar bears are doing just fine. And climate change is a political phrase, not a scientific one.

“Human-induced climate change means much more than just hotter weather,” the report says, listing rising-seas, downpours, melting glaciers and permafrost, and worsening storms. “These changes and other climatic changes have affected and will continue to affect human health, water supply, agriculture, transportation, energy, and many other aspects of society.”

The report uses the word “threat” or variations of it 198 times and versions of the word “disrupt” another 120 times.

Yeah, record corn and sugar beet crops is a Bad Thing. But, what the report is trying to do is create another scary story about weather that has always been changing and unpredictable being all the fault of Mankind, the better to enact legislation that controls people’s behavior.

The report emphasizes that man-made global warming is doing more than just altering the environment we live in, it’s a threat to our bodies, homes, offices, roads, airports, power plants, water systems and farms.

“Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including impacts from increased extreme weather events, wildfire, decreased air quality, diseases transmitted by insects, food and water, and threats to mental health,” the report said.

Extreme weather has already been debunked. CO2 is not a pollutant. Wildfires have always happened, but tend to appear worse because people live in areas that are subject to wildfires, cameras are present, and extreme environmentalists won’t allow areas to see brush reduced. Disease? Was quite a bit worse at the beginning of the Little Ice Age, when the Black Death killed 75 million people. Mental health? Well, I’ll agree with here there, because Warmists are bat guano nuts. And hypocrites.

For example, the report details 13 airports that have runways that could be inundated by rising sea level. It mentions that thawing Alaskan ground means 50 percent less time to drill for oil. And overall it says up to $6.1 billion in repairs need to be made to Alaskan roads, pipelines, sewer systems, buildings and airports to keep up with global warming.

Except Alaska is cooling. They don’t want you to know pesky facts like that.

The draft report is here, if you want a good laugh.

So, “downpours” are now considered an outcome of a man-made pollutant-caused global over-warming?

DOWNPOURS?!?!?!

What next, are they going to measure duration? Are they going to tell us the size of the drops are now affected? Are they going to tell us that the misting rain is now because of CAGW?

the report details 13 airports that have runways that could be inundated by rising sea level.

Ummm… which ones? which major airports have runways that are within a few inches of the ocean? And if so, that is NOT an impact of CAGW but of HORRENDOUS engineering.

It mentions that thawing Alaskan ground means 50 percent less time to drill for oil.

OMG no!! No, we don’t need easier access to oil. Yeah, that would be BAAAAAD. But this is clear example of their bias and intent. Prevent access to oil.

And overall it says up to $6.1 billion in repairs need to be made to Alaskan roads

Ummm.. yeah, because the freeze-thaw cycle never ever happened before now. Does no one recall the history of the construction of the Alaskan Highway? IDIOTS.

Is it too late to move to Cuba?

You know, with all of those freedom loving Americans with guns were to go visit Guantanamo, we might be able to declare it New America.

Wow Teach record corn crop(s) !! that’s great ! OH wait….. that was in only one state, Minnesota. The total US corn crop was down 25% because of the extreme drought.
Don’t you think that fact is more important than how one state did? Minnesota only has 8% of total US production.

And Gummie sorry but guns must be surrendered when visiting Gitmo.

*go visit Guantanamo*

*meant CUBA.

“Ummm… which ones? which major airports have runways that are within a few inches of the ocean? And if so, that is NOT an impact of CAGW but of HORRENDOUS engineering.” – Gumball Brain

That reminds me: Several years ago, the Marine Corps built air strips and a small airport in a valley on Camp Pendleton in California.

What they failed to realize was that that valley was an old riverbed for [big] river which had gone underground. It was surprising, too, that they didn’t realize it, because on the face of a cliff facing out onto the Pacific Ocean only a few miles west of that valley, there was the opening to a huge cavern in which that underground river emerged at beach level and flowed into the Pacific Ocean.

So when the snows from an unusually severe winter in the mountains melted and filled that underground river beyond the capacity of its tunnel, the river busted out of the ground and flowed above gound again, washing away the airport at Camp Pendleton, and embarrassing upper echelon Marines, who had made no plans whatsoever to address that contingency. Fortunately for the base’s commanding officer, his beautiful old Spanish hacienda was washed away, too. True story.

THere’s a moral to this story and a lesson to be learned here. Do you know what it is?
