Latest Global Temperature Data Confirms That Unequivocal Global Cooling Is Accelerating
Note: Just prior to this posting, it became public that A NEW PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCE (PNAS) STUDY CONFIRMS THAT GLOBAL WARMING HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE 1998. This new study refutes James Hansen, Al Gore and all the IPCC Climategate scientists claims of "unequivocal," "unprecedented," and "accelerating" global warming they have made over recent years. GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS HAVE PROVEN TO BE CORRECT, WHICH THE BELOW MATERIAL ALSO SUPPORTS.
In a previous post, we reviewed the last 15 years of HadCRUT temperature records, which show that GLOBAL WARMING HAS BECOME INSIGNIFICANT. In fact, one could accurately state that a global cooling trend is now replacing a global warming trend in an "unequivocal" and "accelerating" manner, using the greens' own favored warming alarmist terms.

When examining the past 15 years of monthly global temperature anomalies, THE PER CENTURY CHANGE FROM A WARMING TREND TO A COOLING TREND BECOMES CLEAR.
Calculating 10-year linear trends from the monthly anomalies, the above chart plots end of year per century trends (plus the May 2011 10-year trend).
The lie seems to be falling apart. Global warming appears to be over. Yesterday I posted an article about how pollution from emerging nations may be the cause of the lack of warming and I posited that perhaps the warming we saw from 1975 to 1998 was due to the cleanup of pollution by the West. What’s sauce for the goose, is sauce for the gander.
Britain’s renewable energy scam
Scarcely a day goes by without more evidence to show why the Government's obsession with wind turbines, now at the centre of our national energy policy, is ONE OF THE GREATEST POLITICAL BLUNDERS OF OUR TIME. Under a target agreed with the EU, Britain is committed within ten years — at astronomic expense — to generating nearly a third of its electricity from renewable sources, mainly through building thousands more wind turbines.
But the penny is finally dropping for almost everyone — except our politicians — that to rely on windmills to keep our lights on is a colossal and very dangerous act of self-deception.
Take, for example, the 350ft monstrosity familiar to millions of motorists who drive past as it sluggishly revolves above the M4 outside Reading.
THIS WIND TURBINE PERFORMED SO POORLY (WORKING AT ONLY 15 PER CENT OF ITS CAPACITY) THAT THE £130,000 GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY GIVEN TO ITS OWNERS WAS MORE THAN THE £100,000 WORTH OF ELECTRICITY IT PRODUCED LAST YEAR….
This is a very good article that lays out the folly that wind power represents. And in the biggest irony of all, you have Holland as “the first country in Europe to abandon its EU renewable energy target, announcing that it is to slash its annual subsidy by billions of euros.” I guess the EU is tilting at windmills.
Labor has 'snootful' but will stick with Obama
Vice President Joe Biden addresses delegates and members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters at the union's international convention, Friday, July 1, 2011, in Las Vegas. "DON'T ANY OF YOU GUYS VOTE REPUBLICAN," BIDEN SAID TO THE CONVENTION. "LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY: DON'T COME TO ME IF YOU DO. YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN, JACK!"…
….BIDEN'S WARNING, WHICH RECEIVED VIRTUALLY NO COVERAGE IN THE PRESS, IS PART OF THE OBAMA RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN'S 2012 STRATEGY FOR ORGANIZED LABOR. It's a two-part plan. One, use the president's executive powers to give labor all sorts of advantages that can't be achieved through legislation. And two, when labor leaders complain that they haven't gotten everything they want, tell them they have nowhere else to go….
I thought the President and Vice President were president and vice president of all Americans. So while support buys access I find this “You’re on your own, Jack!” to be truthful but undemocratic.
10 things you may not know about America’s Independence
3.) IT WAS A STATES THING FIRST: Independence was not something that was confined to Congress. It started out as a state and local thing. In fact, THE VERY FIRST DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE CAME ON OCT. 4, 1774 (21 MONTHS BEFORE THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS DECLARED INDEPENDENCE) FROM THE TOWN OF WORCESTER, MASS. During the next 21 months A TOTAL OF 90 STATE AND LOCAL DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE WOULD BE MADE. When Virginia declared its independence in May 1776, they sent Rep. Richard Henry Lee to the Continental Congress with specific instructions to put forth a resolution of independence for Congress to vote on, thus allying all the colonies -- soon to become states -- against the British Empire in the War for Independence.
If you are a history buff, read this and see what new and not so new knowledge you will gain. I found #3 to be new information for me.
Driving while stoned
It was his green tongue that helped give away Jimmy Candido Flores when police arrived at the fatal accident scene near Chico.
Flores had run off the road and killed a jogger, Carrie Jean Holliman, a 56-year-old Chico elementary school teacher. California Highway Patrol officers thought he might be impaired and conducted a sobriety examination. FLORES' TONGUE HAD A GREEN COAT TYPICAL OF HEAVY MARIJUANA USERS AND A LATER TEST SHOWED HE HAD POT, AS WELL AS OTHER DRUGS, IN HIS BLOOD.
After pleading guilty to manslaughter, Flores, a medical marijuana user, was sentenced in February to 10 years and 8 months in prison.
Holliman's death and others like it across the nation hint at what experts say is an unrecognized crisis: stoned drivers.
The MOST RECENT ASSESSMENT BY THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION, BASED ON RANDOM ROADSIDE CHECKS, FOUND THAT 16.3% OF ALL DRIVERS NATIONWIDE AT NIGHT WERE ON VARIOUS LEGAL AND ILLEGAL IMPAIRING DRUGS, HALF THEM HIGH ON MARIJUANA….
This certainly doesn’t gel with the claim by pot users that they are a “safe” drug. I guess MADD should change its name to MASD (mothers against stoned drivers).
The future is now
Star Trek is at least partially here.
Don’t miss this one. It’s really worth click and watching the video.
