Seven Totally Scary Facts About Hotcoldwetdry

Of course, since this is on MSNBC, only about 5 people will see it

An Arctic without ice, no more koala bears, and extreme droughts? As Earth Day approaches, take a moment to learn how climate change threatens our country — and our planet.

What? No koala bears! Maybe they should be worried more about the chlamydia rampant in up to 90% of some koala bear populations.

1. FACT: If everyone in the world lived the way people do in the U.S., it would take five Earths to provide enough resources for everyone

Perhaps members of the Cult of Climastrology should cut back on their own use of resources. MSNBC probably uses more energy than quite a few “developing nations”.

2. FACT: 2014 was the world’s hottest year on record

Beyond the notion that it might not have been, and, even if it was, only by a few hundreds of a degree, it doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation.

3. FACT: Average global sea level is expected to rise 7 – 23 inches before the end of this century

That’s not a fact, it’s looking into a crystal ball. And, even if it did, it would be well within the natural variability for a Holocene warm period.

4. FACT: More than a million species face potential extinction as a result of disappearing habitats, changing ecosystems, and acidifying oceans

If you’re using the word “could”, it’s not science, it’s politics.

5. FACT: The Arctic region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040

LOL. Obviously, the previous prognostications of Arctic doom have failed, so let’s stretch to 2040, when everyone will have forgotten the prediction.

6. FACT: 99.84% of the land in the state of California is suffering from drought

Which also doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation.

7. FACT: From 1979 to 2003, excessive heat exposure contributed to more than 8,000 premature deaths in the United States

Yet, these same climamorons want to make energy much more costly. And it still doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation. How did people survive during the previous Holocene warm periods, which were much warmer?

If MSNBC is so concerned, they should go carbon neutral. Which would, of course, mean shutting down their business. Would anyone even notice if they did?

    Acutally, The drought in the state of CA is anthropogenic. It is just from years of policies and regulations…

  2. Jeffery says:

    Of course, since this is on MSNBC, only about 5 people will see it

    And even fewer will read it here…

    1. True
    2. Probably true. And 2015 is expected to be warmer yet!
    3. True. It’s not part of a natural Holocene warm period (since there is no such thing).
    4. True. And they didn’t use the word “could”, you did.
    5. True. Unless you think the Earth will stop warming.
    6. True. Nothing proves anthropogenic causation in your mind.
    7. True.

    How did people survive during the previous Holocene warm periods, which were much warmer?

    That’s false. There is no evidence that the Earth has been warmer at all during the Holocene, and certainly not “much warmer”.

    The truth is, climate science is one of the newest sciences. The truth is, we know little about the climate, we’ve only been studying it intensely for a couple decades. The truth is, we can’t project the climate of the next decade, much less that of the next century. The truth is, we have no general theory of climate. The truth is, we don’t know if an average temperature rise of a couple degrees will be a net benefit or a net loss. The truth is, all of us are human, and our knowledge of the climate is in its infancy.

    Five years later little has changed.

    I love how they word things. They say “fact”, and then say “the Arctic MAY have its first ice free summer by 2040.” Well, if it’s a fact, then the Arctic WILL have an ice free summer… Of course it was supposed to be ice free by, what, last year so according to Al Gore. And he said that was a fact. “Excessive heat exposure contributed to over 8,000 premature deaths from……..” That sentence alone would get a failing grade in an 8th grade science class. What’s “excessive”? What’s the heat source? A few years ago, several hundred if not thousands died in France during a hot summer. But that was because many elderly did not have air conditioners- and nothing to do with “global warming”. And notice the dramatic “premature deaths.” You could say any death, by any means, would be premature if it were before an average life span. “Heat exposure contributed…” How stupid. Someone could drown and a contributing factor could be he/she was drunk, had no life vest, went swimming after dark, didn’t know how to swim, ect. Funny they don’t say how big a contribution it was-because they can’t. “California suffering from drought..” Yep, and it’s happened before, with much longer time spans. So what? Doesn’t prove why. “Average sea level expected to rise” Again, “expected” with this group means nothing as most of their previous expectations haven’t come true. (See Arctic sea ice above). Seas have risen in the past, and will in the future. “Warmest year” they admitted they’re not sure, and if so would only be one year out of 135 years. Which means nothing with a 4 billion year data base. All in all, another comical attempt at scaring the low info types.

    Willis Eschenbach said that ??? well I guess HE must know just look at his credentials Credentials

    California Massage Certificate, Aames School of Massage, Oakland, CA. (1974).
    B.A., Psychology, Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, CA. (1975).
    He currently is working for South Pacific Oil doing some kind of IT work.
    He gets into a lot of small hissy fits with Roy Spencer Willis seems to think quite highly of himself as qa citizen scientist (lacking any academic training at all in a related field)
    please google wondering willie eschenbacks if you want a lot of laughs about willis

    This is the person whom you consider to have the best knowledge on such a complex subject as climate change ?
    A carpenter? who has had 18 other jobs?

  7. john says:

    jl Climate truthers have a bad habit of saying that other people like Gore said things without giving a citation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPLD8aylRiw
    In this you tube he clearly says “could” as well as repeating what the US Navy has said that it could happen as early as 2020 What sort of science creds are you brining to the table?

  8. john says:

    People always seem to want to use Gore as their personal pinata. Why not mock the US Navy’s Arctic Roadmap?
    This is something that Gore often cites http://greenfleet.dodlive.mil/files/2014/02/USN-Arctic-Roadmap-2014.pdf

    See little Johnny hangs out at DeSmog.
    Attack the messenger, huh, johnny?
    No problem.
    Mann, Trenberth, Jones, Hansen, Schmidt and the rest of the hockey team are somehow truthful and credible scientists?
    Well, okay then.

    Yes.
