Good News: Pence And Trump Are On Same Page Regarding Hotcoldwetdry

For all Mike Pence’s faults (which aren’t even close to Trump’s), he’s not a member of the Cult of Climastrology

On Climate Change, Pence and Trump Are a Perfect Match

Donald Trump calls global warming a “hoax.” He claims climate science is “bullshit,” and he’s even described it (supposedly as a joke) as a Chinese conspiracy. So perhaps it isn’t that surprising that Mike Pence—whom Trump just named as his running mate—has similar views. (WT note: I’ve written before that the Chinese thing is idiotic and wrong)

“Global warming is a myth,” Pence wrote nearly two decades ago in an op-ed unearthed by . “Environmentalists,” the Indiana Republican explained, “claim that certain ‘greenhouse gases’ like carbon dioxide are mucking up the atmosphere and causing the earth to gradually warm. Despite the fact that CO2 is a naturally occurring phenomenon in nature, the greenpeace folks want to blame it all on coal (another natural mineral) and certain (evil) coal burning power plants.” He added (inaccurately) that “the earth is actually cooler today than it was about 50 years ago.”

Oh, noes, 20 years ago! And, the computer models have failed over that period of time. Go figure.

He was wrong about being cooler than 50 years prior, which isn’t actually nearly 20 years ago, more like 2001, as you can see from the Wayback Machine archive (seriously, this is how unhinged Leftists get in their research). It was warmer in 2001 than 1951, especially since that was a time of cooling up to the late 1970’s.

Anyhow, he’s expressed a Skeptical viewpoint since, and

Pence has also been an outspoken opponent of policies that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He told the Star Press that a cap-and-trade proposal passed by the US House of Representatives in 2009 would raise energy prices and harm the economy. The legislation would have put a limit and a price on the carbon emissions that cause climate change. “I really believe Democratic climate change legislation will cap growth and trade jobs,” he said.

As governor of Indiana, Pence has continued to fight against policies intended to combat global warming. His latest battle? An effort to block President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, a set of Environmental Protection Agency regulations that would limit greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants. Last year, Pence called Indiana a “proud pro-coal state” on a press call, according to the Indianapolis Star. He vowed to resist the new regulations.

Well, I like Pence on this issue.

    and not too surprising Pence is also a Tobbaco Truther
    check out his videos on
    Smoking doesn’t kill
    He seems to agree that the science isn’t settled on that one either http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/15/mike-pence-donald-trumps-vp-pick-smoking-doesnt-kill.html
    Tobacco Truther= Climate Truther
    and of course he takes massives donations from the companies that profit from his political positions

    and here is a graph of surface temps it looks prety much like Gore said sure don’t see any PAUSE http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/Now of course that .4F rise from 1998 to now may saeem miniscuoe to some but please remember that some areas like the Arctic are warming at 400% of the “average”
    Why maybe it is time to say the temps are skyrocketing !

  3. That still doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation, John. And that, right there, is the debate. Causation.

    And even Warmists like Mike Mann and others agree there was a pause.

    • John says:

      Teach are you still also saying there is no proof that smoking causes cancer?
      The same “think tanks” that told us that are the same ones now saying that CO2 doesn’t cause global warming
      Why would you trust them?

    Of course Pence doesn’t accept the theory of AGW (or biological evolution). He’s a far-right Republican.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Causation. So what is causing this abrupt and unusual warm up?

    If police catch a man running out of a house carrying a pistol, go inside and find his estranged wife dying, having been shot through the chest by a bullet later shown to be from the gun the husband was carrying, would that prove to your satisfaction that he shot her?

    What if the husband offered the alternative hypothesis that he walked in just as another person shot is wife and he was chasing the hypothetical other shooter?

    Or maybe she shot herself and her husband walked in and was so distraught he was throwing away the gun.

    Perhaps the husband’s lawyer could argue that there was no direct proof she was actually shot at all. Maybe it was a spontaneous hole that opened in her chest and the husband shot the bullet into the wall as she fell. Just because scientists haven’t discovered spontaneous thoracic explosions doesn’t mean it’s not possible. In fact, people died thousand of years before guns were even invented – suspiciously, some with chest injuries.

    The alternative hypotheses are testable, right? Did she own a gun? Were her prints or those of another shooter on the gun? Was there residue on her chest consistent with a close shot? Did any of her blood splatter behind consistent with a projectile? etc etc

    Would you be comfortable sending this white man to prison for the rest of his life based on circumstantial evidence with no proof?

    The “Trump inside Pence” logo is a gift to the nattering mobs!

    Thank goodness “Poor Mikey” Pence had no political future anyway. Indianans want him gone.

    I think that our resident liberals need to go and read what Pence REALLY said in his tobacco op-ed.

    He was exactly right. After the win on tobacco, big government has gone after fast food, fatty foods, sugary drinks and all manner of other ‘unhealthy’ things. All in the name of ‘protecting us from ourselves’.

    But of course, the liberal rags spouting this don’t include these parts as it goes against the narrative. They also know that their brain dead followers will just read the headline and form their opinion from that.
