Panel: Finding climate fingerprints in wild weather is valid. Climate science, as you can see, is really progressing. Instead of scientific proof or doctoring data, all that is now required to prove a weather event is evidence of global warming is a wild-assed guess. We know this is true because a panel prognosticated it. OK we’re off to see our local witch doctor for the weather report.
Feds refer Exxon climate claims to FBI. Perhaps they should make the board of directors at Exxon wear a scarlet CH on their clothing for Climate Heretic. Meanwhile, large Democrat donor Warren Buffet mysteriously gets a pass for saying “…climate change should not be on your list of worries.”
Declassed Bin Laden Letter Invokes Obama, Attacks Capitalism, Defends Global Warming Alarmism. Old Bin Laden liked hope and change, too! Just had hope in the wrong dope.
Seal Travels 1,000 Miles Down East Coast to Escape Winter Weather. Well, here’s more surefire proof of global warming. If the little guy had gone north to escape the heat it would be all over the MSM.
Arctic Sea Ice Trend May Have Turned The Corner As Ice Volume Picks Up Over Past 5 Years. Waiting for the “scientist” to claim this is merely a product of global warming in 10…9…8…
Pentagon orders commanders to prioritize climate change in all military actions. ISIS, China, North Korea, Al Qaeda and other assorted enemies be like rolling on the floor laughing about this.
Pulling Back The Curtain On Super Climate Sunday. Thanks to Steve Goddard you can now see what the real, unaltered climate data says compared to the climate BS emanating from various places like NASA and NOAA? Here it is. Have fun!

Climate Alarmists Invent New Excuse: The Satellites Are Lying. The good news? This shows they’ve run out of bullshit and are getting more desperate.
You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes
Man Goes To Bear Country To See Bears, Gets Mauled, Blamed On “Climate Change.” Too bad the bear didn’t eat this doofus.
WH Science Advisor: ‘Human-Caused Warming’ SAVING Earth from ‘Another Ice Age.’ Really now. So if global warming is saving us from an ice age why are we trying to get rid of it? Loon.
Oopsie! $1 Billion in UN Funds to Fight Climate Change Built Coal Power Plants Instead. Why they’re often referred to as greentards.
Only 50% Of Scientists Blame Mankind for Climate Change In New Study. So much for that 97% consensus. Send this to a greentard and make their day.
Until now, the threats climate change cultists warned us about have been terrestrial: sea levels rising, year-round snowfalls, year-round heat waves, etc. That wasn’t enough to frighten change-denying terrorists, so now the believers are rolling out the big guns: aliens!
Even the UK Guardian seems a bit skeptical:
It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.
When Neil Armstrong said, “One small step for man…”, one of the lizard people said, “There goes the astronomical neighborhood.”
“Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet.
Hmmmm. The aliens sound a lot like progressive Democrats.
“These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems.”
ETs may not like the growth that’s already here. We’d advise rich libs like Al Gore to move into eco-friendly huts pronto.
It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets,” the authors write.
It’s also important for us to limit our bullcrap emissions since it’s likely that frauds and hypocrites can be spotted from other planets, too.

Tim Flannery is Australia’s version of Al Gore. By that we don’t mean that he’s an overweight guy who’s screwing the wives of his Hollywood buddies. Not at all. Tim Flannery couldn’t get laid in a whorehouse with a fistful of fifties.
But he is the Aussie pied piper of global warming. He comes up with one wild global warming prediction after another and none of them – repeat, none of them – ever come true.
For example, he forecast that Australian rain would become a thing of the past, that its rivers would stop flowing, that its water supplies would dry up and that its land would die.
As ABC Australia reports, the producers of Max Max 4 are now thinking, “If only.”
The highly anticipated fourth movie in the Mad Max series will no longer be filmed in Broken Hill in New South Wales’s far west, despite years of preparation.
Kennedy Miller Mitchell (KMM), the production company behind Mad Max: Fury Road, says the area around Broken Hill is too green for the post-apocalyptic film.
Filming on the movie, which will star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, was meant to begin early next year after already being delayed twice because of weather…
Broken Hill Mayor Wincen Cuy says the council understands the decision.
“This decision has been 12 months now in the making and I believe it hasn’t been taken lightly,” he said.
“It is a tragedy that it can’t, but nature has caused it, nothing other than nature has caused it.
Yes, indeed, Mayor Cuy. It’s a damn tragedy your town won’t be blessed with the wonders that come with a Hollywood production crew and yet another tragedy that it’s been cursed with such abundant rain that the surrounding hillsides have exploded in grass and flowers.
A tragedy indeed.
Just ask Tim Flannery.

According to Al Gore, the creation of a carbon offset market is the magical solution to all our global warming problems. Create an American market similar to Europe’s and global warming will be halted in its tracks. And if a billion or two extra dollars should happen to end up in the Goracle’s pocket, well, that’s something that just can’t be avoided.
Just one thing: The European market doesn’t work any better than the crystal ball Gore used to predict global warming.
Reuters has the details:
Carbon offsets neared all-time lows Friday, confirming their status as the world’s worst performing commodity, as slumping demand meets rising supply of the U.N. instrument traded under the Kyoto Protocol.
Rising supply amid slumping demand? This sounds like the United States dollar under Geithner, Bernanke and Obama.
Carbon offsets have fared uniquely badly because a U.N. climate panel continues to print new offsets, regardless of a widening glut in emissions permits in the main demand market, the European Union’s carbon market.
Put the printing presses in high gear. More dollars. More carbon offsets. More opinions from Al Gore. More of everything no one wants.
The Aspen Institute held a media forum and Al Gore showed up to speak. The Goracle put on one of his patented “I’m so angry I could spit” performances and even threw in a few special words to show just how angry he is.
The Colorado Independent was there to record them for posterity:
“They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!” Gore exclaimed.
And he wasn’t done. No, he was just getting warmed up about global warming deniers:
“When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again,” he continued. “There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea! … It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word climate. It is not acceptable. They have polluted it to the point where we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it.”
What caused Al to get so het up? No one knows for sure, but we can imagine the following scene:
Laurie David is curled up next to the Goracle in bed in their luxurious suite after the speech. Little beads of sweat are forming on her brow. She gives out an involuntary gasp and says, “Oh, Albert. I know I’m just contributing to global warming and that’s against everything we believe in, but it makes me sooooo hot when you talk all manly-like during your speeches.”
And Al smiles and thinks to himself, “Imagine that. I’m doing Larry David’s wife and saving the planet simultaneously. I am a global warming stud.”

“The science is settled” is the mantra repeated by global warming true believers to justify their faith in a fraudulent religion. Ad nauseam.
Uh-oh. In another blow to the Gospel According to Saint Al, it turns out that the vast majority of Americans are apostates.
Rasmussen has the details:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-four percent (24%) don’t think it’s likely some scientists have falsified global warming data, including just six percent (6%) say it’s Not At All Likely. Another 10% are undecided.
The number of adults who say it’s likely scientists have falsified data is up 10 points from December 2009 .
Fifty-seven percent (57%) believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community on global warming, up five points from late 2009. One in four (25%) believes scientists agree on global warming. Another 18% aren’t sure.
We just did our own survey. 50% of the IHTM staff thinks Al Gore concocted global warming to line his own pockets and 50% think he did it to advance one world government. The margin of error is 50% one way or the other.
Angela Merkel’s government has made an announcement that’s sure to make environmental wackos happy – they’re closing down all their nuclear power plants. But Phase Two of the plan will drive the wackos even whackier.
Watts Up With That has the details:
Less than a month after the failed Bonn UN climate confab, Germany has announced a most audacious energy policy: in order to shutter nuclear plants (but not completely scuttle their economy), the German government will direct climate fund cash to building coal and natural gas plants. You can’t make this stuff up.
Germany plans to dump nuclear power by 2022 but clearly needs to meet burgeoning electricity demand especially for a still powerful manufacturing economy dependent upon exports. Solar panels at their latitude and windmills are not going to suffice, so the solution is more coal. The environmental movement must be apoplectic with so many politically correct wires crossing at once.
Perhaps Germans could figure out a way to power their nation by tapping into the steam coming out of the eco-wackos’ ears.

The following is brought to you by global warming alarmists who are waiting for trillions of your dollars to mitigate the effects of…GLOBAL WARMING!!!
Dear people who don’t believe that you will soon face a fiery hot death due to your own selfish, gluttonous, non-eco friendly, non-socialist behavior,
It’s over! We’re all doomed! Oh, Sweet Merciful Gaia!
All weather conditions are caused by global warming! So are lower circumcision rates in Africa!!!
Bad tomato crop? You betcha SWEET HOT ASS IT”S GLOBAL WARMING!!!
As if that weren’t bad enough, it appears that over-use of exclamation marks is caused by global warming!!!
Thank you. Have a nice day.

Panic is setting in at Al Gore’s posh seaside mansion near Santa Barbara. Sea levels and public support for the Goracle’s scam have both stubbornly refused to rise as predicted.
We imagine that Laurie David rolled over in bed one morning, looked into the former Vice President’s puffy eyes and whined, “My ex-husband is on television. Why aren’t you on television.”
Environment & Energy Publishing has Gore’s response:
Former Vice President Al Gore today will announce a new 24-hour global campaign aimed at recharging the climate change debate.
Dubbed “24 Hours of Reality,” the Sept. 14-15 event will feature messages from more than 3,000 scientists, celebrities, activists and Gore himself on the dangers of rising global temperatures. Speaking in dozens of countries in every time zone, they will be live-streamed worldwide, and their messages will be translated into several languages.
3,000 scientists in 24 hours? That’s less than 30 seconds per scientist if the idiotic program included nothing but the scientists. But you know it will include hour after hour of desperate pleas for money and plenty of Al Gore facetime. So we estimate that each scientist is going to get about two seconds to present his or her case.
You may say that’s not much time. But it’s actually two seconds more than they’ve ever given any scientists on the other side of the argument.
To launch the 24 Hours of Reality program, Gore renamed his nonprofit advocacy group from the Alliance for Climate Protection to the Climate Reality Project. The daylong live and online event will focus largely on the connection between extreme weather events and rising global temperatures.
It will, of course, ignore the connection between global warming hysteria and the money in Al Gore’s bank account.

If warmists were like normal people, they’d be embarrassed by the series of revelations about their fraudulent science. But, no, nothing seems to embarrass these charlatans.
For example, the most recent IPCC report said, “Close to 80 percent of the world’s energy supply could be met by renewables by mid-century if backed by the right enabling public policies.”
You may be surprised by that rosy prediction, but rest assured that the 80% figure was determined by very precise, highly scientific computer modeling. Well, at least it was very precise and highly scientific by IPCC standards.
National Review reviews the science:
It turns out that to get to that 80 percent number the folks at the IPCC threw out 163 scenarios where their models did not give them the answer they wanted. Only on the 164th try did they finally get an answer they liked. Moreover, the report the IPCC used as the basis for its claim turns out to have been written by Greenpeace activists in conjunction with a lobbying group for renewable energy. No real scientists or engineers were involved. But the story gets even better. For the IPCC model to work, they researchers had to assume the world will be using less energy in 2050 than it is today. By that date there may be 2 billion more people on the planet, all clamoring for their fair share of energy resources. But somehow the IPCC thinks we will be using less energy!
In a similar vein, we went through 164 headlines for this article before we settled on the one above. The first 163 all involved variations of words beginning with the letter F.

It’s almost funny. No, it is funny. Very damn funny, in fact. One might even say uproarious.
The same global warming fanatics who told us that burning coal is one of the main causes of global warming are now explaining away a decade of cooler temperatures by blaming it on – you guessed it – burning coal.
The BBC manages to explain it all without even cracking a smile:
The lull in global warming from 1998 to 2008 was mainly caused by a sharp rise in China’s coal use, a study suggests.
The absence of a temperature rise over that decade is often used by “climate sceptics” as grounds for denying the existence of man-made global warming.
But the new study, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, concludes that smog from the extra coal acted to mask greenhouse warming.
Aha! It must be true because it says so in a study. A study presented in a journal with a very long name. That’s good enough for us and we’re confident that it’s good enough for any reasonable person.
China’s coal use doubled 2002-2007, according to US government figures.
Although burning the coal produced more warming carbon dioxide, it also put more tiny sulphate aerosol particles into the atmosphere which cool the planet by reflecting solar energy back into space.
In other words, the problem is also the solution. If it’s warmer, it’s the result of burning coal. If it’s getting cooler, it’s the result of burning coal.
Global warming theory is like one of those Snuggies you see advertised on late night TV – one size fits all.
Hard to believe, but it was a mere six years ago the Goracle descended from on high to warn mankind that global warming would inevitably lead to more hurricanes and stronger hurricanes.
He foresaw nothing but death and destruction and a little more jingly in his pocket.
CommonDreams.org quotes the Goracle back in 2005:
… the science is extremely clear now, that warmer oceans make the average hurricane stronger, not only makes the winds stronger, but dramatically increases the moisture from the oceans evaporating into the storm – thus magnifying its destructive power – makes the duration, as well as the intensity of the hurricane, stronger.
Last year we had a lot of hurricanes. Last year, Japan set an all-time record for typhoons: ten, the previous record was seven. Last year the science textbooks had to be re-written. They said, “It’s impossible to have a hurricane in the south Atlantic.” We had the first one last year, in Brazil. We had an all-time record last year for tornadoes in the United States, 1,717 – largely because hurricanes spawned tornadoes.
Don’t look now, Al, but Anthony Watts reports that your prediction was about 180 degrees off. Hurricane activity is now near an all-time low.
During the past 6-years since Hurricane Katrina, global tropical cyclone frequency and energy have decreased dramatically, and are currently at near-historical record lows. According to a new peer-reviewed research paper accepted to be published, only 69 tropical storms were observed globally during 2010, the fewest in almost 40-years of reliable records.
Furthermore, when each storm’s intensity and duration were taken into account, the total global tropical cyclone accumulated energy (ACE) was found to have fallen by half to the lowest level since 1977.
Paging Al Gore. Paging Al Gore. The 2011 hurricane season started June 1. Has anyone seen Al Gore lately?
