And we quote: “Global warming lecture postponed due to cooling”

Up to six inches of global warming piled up in some Texas cities

Up to six inches of global warming piled up in some Texas cities

You can’t make this stuff up. You just can’t. A global warming lecture scheduled for December 4 at the University of Texas Austin has been postponed because of cold weather.

The following e-mail was received and duly reported by Eric Berger, the Houston Chronicle SciGuy blogger:

Global Warming lecture postponed due to cooling

Given the travel advisories issued and the likelihood of freezing weather for the Austin area tomorrow evening, we are postponing the December 4 event, Global Warming – Lone Star Impacts.

What makes the postponement even funnier is that it follows so closely on the heels of the Chronicle’s November 22 Chicken Little editorial on global warming:

As world governments prepare for a pivotal conference in Copenhagen next month to map future strategy to contain global warming, and the U.S. Congress debates legislation to reduce carbon emissions, evidence continues to accumulate that the threat is accelerating.

A new study by a team of British scientists indicates that man-made carbon emissions continue to increase despite the global recession. While emissions in the United States fell by 3 percent last year, they jumped 2 percent worldwide, most of the increase coming from China. The U.S. and China are the world’s largest carbon emitters.

Equally ominous, the planet’s oceans are steadily losing capacity to absorb the greenhouse gases that trap heat and fuel global warming.
The Global Carbon Project study concludes that unless emissions are substantially reduced, the result would be a rise in average global temperature by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century.

That is on par with previous worst-case scenarios outlined by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Scientists have estimated that temperature spikes above 2 degrees could have disastrous consequences, including large rises in sea level, droughts and stronger storms.

The folks at the Chronicle might want to look out the window and notice that it’s not the sky that’s falling, it’s the temperature.

I find it absolutley amazing that with the plethora of contrary data coming out, the unethical utilization of data for modeling, and all other facts pertaining to this now factually known scam, that the “global warming movement” is still even breathing.

Being an engineer/scientist, and having more than just a little background in software development and statistical modeling, I am astounded and shocked that anyone could, with a straight face, still be pushing this scam…and even more shocked that our illustrious man-child president is allowing this farce to be continued….as opposed to doing the right thing and calling for investigations before pushing his radical and idiotic agenda down our throats. If this does not prove his incompetence and and hate for our country, I just don’t know else will….

For these global warmers to deny the cooling trend is kind of like a flabbergasted, dismayed Tiger Woods saying…”what me cheat?”

Those pimping “GlobalWarming/ClimateChange” are bigger frauds then Tiger was in remaining faithfull to his wife, Elin. Plus, we have proof that both are fraudulent.
