Global Warming Today: Top 10, Christmas Bad, and Hysteria Absurdia

Junk Science, which has upped the reward to $150K for anyone who can prove that Man is the main culprit of global warming (no takers as of yet), offers the Top 10 Climate Myths for 2007

“I’ve made up my mind. Don’t confuse me with the facts.” That saying most appropriately sums up the year in climate science for the fanatic global warming crowd.

Not to be outdone, Christmas is now a bad guy to some climate change nutters

Just as the conference in Bali on global warming wraps up with a middling agreement, consumers in the US and Europe are rushing to holiday stores, mostly unaware of how their Christmas consumerism affects global warming. The British independent think-tank, New Economics Foundation (NEF) has released a report highlighting the environmental cost of holiday shopping.

Expect that one to gain traction next December.

And, you know, there is a reason why I call them climahysterics

For all those who shrug off global warming as a problem reserved for future generations, there is bad news: Passing on the burden is no longer an option.

The scientific evidence is now abundantly clear. The consequences of climate change are happening now, and happening quickly.

Rising global temperatures are fueling increasingly severe and frequent storms, droughts, forest fires, floods, forced migrations, and famines – not just in the Third World, but in our own backyards.

Either we act now or never.

Because storms, droughts, forest fires, floods, etc, have never happened till now!

Read the rest of the factless filled innuendo, which would make The Goracle proud, but, I want to highlight one more part

Every single day, the United States uses more than 400 billion gallons of water. Just to put that into perspective, if the New York Giants’ football field were converted into a massive 9-foot-deep swimming pool, it would hold less than a single second’s worth of U.S. consumption.

Soon this abundant supply will no longer exist. Having a well-thought-out plan ready to go may make the difference between a manageable crisis and complete chaos.

I suppose the water is going to just disappear into space. I wonder if Devlin Buckley, the writer, realizes that when the climate cools down quite a bit, much of the water is locked up in ice.

    Yes Teach you are correct the world has undergone many catastrophes in the past 4 billion years.
    The problem is that nature including man is pretty much used to having the climate the way it has been in living memory. Say, and of course this is just a hypothetical, there was a severe drought around say Atlanta. Well up here in the north east we don’t want a couple of million people coming up here and drinking our water. So we are concerned about climate change. And even though our winters are milder and some like it better that way we still don’t want millions of people heading up here from places that are getting too hot.

  2. But what can we actually do, John? It is primarily natural. And it has happened before, and will happen again.

    Are you saying that you would refuse to help your fellow Americans? (gotcha question ;))

    Do you even read before commenting?

    You write: “Because storms, droughts, forest fires, floods, etc, have never happened till now!”

    But the article states: “Rising global temperatures are fueling INCREASINGLY SEVERE AND FREQUENT storms, droughts, forest fires, floods, forced migrations, and famines…”

    This is entirely true. Higher global temperatures are indeed causing natural disasters to occur with increased severity and frequency.

    You then write: “I suppose the water is going to just disappear into space.”

    Have you ever heard of a drought? Here is just one example of what the article is referring to…

    You are the one spewing the “factless filled innuendo”, my friend.

    The question I have for Joe, and John is a simple one. Do you prefer the climate cooler, warmer, or are you guys in the Goldilocks camp, we like it to be just right? Your answer will of course result in numerous follow up questions, but please, enlighten those of us who fail to appreciated the climate catastrophe awaiting all of humanity.

  5. Joe Blow says:

    I would prefer the environment the way it was when humans first popped up on this planet, but unfortunately that is no longer an option.

    The world’s average global temperature is expected to rise anywhere between 2 to 11 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100, resulting in numerous natural disasters, a significant decline in habitable land, and, consequently, mass extinctions.

    So what would you have us do? Keep killing the planet until everything and everybody is dead?

  6. Duh says:

    “The West’s natural water-delivery system is breaking down under the strain of rising temperatures, upsetting a fragile truce between people and the dry land they inhabit.

    Mountain-snow runoff already bears the scars of climate change in the highest elevations, where winter now arrives later and ends earlier. There, snow melts before downstream users need it, or vanishes in the mild-spring winds.

    Scientists say this seasonal shift will deepen as temperatures rise. The change threatens not only the water but also the way it is stored and released in a delicate relay from storm clouds to mountains to streams and reservoirs.”

    A wonder full day here in New York City a balmy 54 degrees here at the end of December.
    Any sign of global climate change ??

    I like the climate the way it has been thanks. ANY change is going to adversely effect life as we know it. Yes Canada may welcome some more warmth but that same warmth will drive people from the south to migrate north. I don’t want that, do you ?

  8. John Ryan says:

    Of course there have been extreme weather events in the past, but you had better come up with a better debating point than that if you expect to prove your point. The fact is that extreme weather events are happening with a much higher frequency. And here is some shocking news WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING !!! 2007 will be amongst the warmest ever recorded. Of course this applies ONLY to the northern hemisphere where 90% of the world’s population lives. So Antartica is still cool NO PROBLEM THERE !!!
