Now It Can Be Said

Mission ...

It's a good day.

Global Warmists Have Resorted To This

It's almost painful to watch.  Where once they told us we were destroying the planet by causing the planet to warm - at a point when it quit warming - they now tell us that we're causing ... "climate" ... and its ... "worsening"?

And that pitiful bit of circumvention comes from a by-God scientist!

Get this:
Violent tornadoes throughout the southeastern U.S. must be a front-page reminder that no matter how successful climate deniers are in confusing the public or delaying action on climate change in Congress or globally, the science is clear: Our climate is worsening.

More extreme and violent climate is a direct consequence of human-caused climate change (whether or not we can determine if these particular tornado outbreaks were caused or worsened by climate change). There is a reason it isn't called global warming anymore. Higher temperatures are only one -- and not the most worrisome -- of the consequences of a changing climate.

Climate science tells us unambiguously that we are changing the climate and trapping more energy on the planet. Trapping more energy will cause more extreme events and worsen extreme events that would otherwise happen.
We no longer simply affect climate. We can - and do - change the weather.

If only.

When the planet was warming, we were causing it to warm.
Until it quit warming.

When the planet was producing violent hurricanes, we were causing hurricanes.
Until there were no more violent hurricanes.

Now that the planet is unleashing horrific tornadoes ... well, you get the drift.

Bottom line?


A question for the "scientist":

If the science is "unambiguous," why the ambiguity in this sentence:

"More extreme and violent climate is a direct consequence of human-caused climate change (whether or not we can determine if these particular tornado outbreaks were caused or worsened by climate change)."

Whether or not we can determine ...?

Is it unambiguous (meaning "exhibiting a single clearly defined meaning") or not?

These aren't scientists. They're cultists.  With all the baggage that word brings with it.

This Is Why She's Detested By Millions

I wonder what changed between 2006 and today?

John Hinderaker heaps scorn upon Nancy Pelosi, by simply quoting her:
Nancy Pelosi, press conference, September 7, 2006:

"[E]ven if [Osama bin Laden] is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late. He has done more damage the longer he has been out there. But, in fact, the damage that he has done ... is done. And even to capture him now I don't think makes us any safer."

Nancy Pelosi, earlier today:

"The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against al-Qaida. ... I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment. ... [T]he death of Osama bin Laden is historic...."

It is unfortunate that many public figures are unable to view events otherwise than through a partisan prism.
Unfortunate but not irreclaimable.   This worm, and all the slimy politicians like her, need to be sent back to the shadows from which they crawled.
