That would be the Church of Climatology, and its high priests ARE the government. Despite having a really crappy record of prognostication, the climate doomsayers still insist we’re doomed (my bold emphasis in the quoted section) if we don’t pay Mother Gaia tribute by destroying our economy and returning to the 18th century.algore hypocrite

Yet a new religion has been imposed upon the citizens of this country.  It  emanates from the highest federal levels; it has found its voice in the White House bully pulpit.  It is promulgated with a religious fervor reminiscent of the fictional Elmer Gantry.  This religion is complete with warnings and admonitions of coming days of doom for mankind lest the new tenets be rejected by anyone.

In this era of electronic communications, this new religion’s commandments have been dispersed via the internet, which obviated the inconvenience of another trip to Mt. Sinai.  The 2014 tablets bear the title of the third “National Climate Assessment (NCA)” report.

At over 800 pages, this federal document of secular religion – based on human guilt and the presumptive sin of having eaten excessively of fossil fuel – outstrips the Ten Commandments by a mile in word count.  Man-made carbon dioxide has been targeted by the high priests of the profane as some sort of original sin staining the purity of the virgin Earth, thereby bringing the wrath of devil-like climate change in punishment.  Heat waves, excessive rainfall, floods, ocean rise, crop failures are retributions awaiting mankind should the new Federal religion be violated by human-caused carbon dioxide emanations. Lacking a true Biblical source, the high priests of this federal climate religion have relied on their man-made computers to foretell these days of doom, should mankind not renounce this essential, life-giving gas…carbon dioxide.

The reality of years of climate observations has not supported the prophecies of these priestly climate computers.   Two federal agencies, NOAA and NASA, both confirm that there has been no increase in global temperature for the past 17 years, even as atmospheric carbon dioxide has increased over 9 percent.  Risking running afoul of Voltaire’s admonition – “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong” – McKitrick, Spencer, and others have published the failures of these foundational computer engines of the new federal climate dogma.  Heck, even the ancient Oracle at Delphi had a better track record of forecasting, albeit with the benefit of a few whiffs of earthly hydrocarbon gases, including ethylene.

That’s the amount of Antarctic ice measured in 2013, a record. This number was part of an article in Investors Business Daily that was noting the irony of the climate scientists who insist that the ice is disappearing from Earth being trapped so securely in ice that icebreakers couldn’t get them out. Hilariously, the alarmists still insisted on saying the sea ice is disappearing in their statement about having to be rescued.

In 2013, the ice reached 19.51 million square kilometers, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center website.

That number topped the record-high level set in 2012 of 19.48 million square kilometers. The Australasian Antarctic Expedition has now found itself trapped in some of that ice as its leaders try to explain away the ice’s presence.

Dr. Don J. Easterbrook, a professor of geology at Western Washington University, points out that the East Antarctic sheet, which contains about 90% of the world’s fresh water, is not melting, but expanding. Read More

Twitter was full of love for Algore and his global warming climate change BS yesterday – awesome.

Gore sold his Current TV network to Al Jazeera just before the end of the year. The staff’s first meeting with their new owners didn’t leave them feeling very good about the whole thing:

(New York Post) “Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.al-gore-plane

“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”

The meeting, while not contentious, was, according to staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, miserable.

How do they feel about Gore the savior of green energy now?

The displeasure with Gore among the staff was thick enough to cut with a scimitar.

“We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bulls***ter,” said the staffer bluntly.

We do stories on the tax code, and he sells the network before the tax code kicked in?

“Al was always lecturing us about green. He kept his word about green all right—as in cold, hard cash!”

Ahem, yes. So now they get it. The key word is bullsh*t.

Another entry in the eco-bullsh*t files. Algore must be beside himself.

Computer models have been indicating, for at least 20 years, that the ice shelves in Antarctica are losing mass faster than they are gaining it. That is, they’re melting – and presumably from “global warming.” Scientists from the Norwegian Polar Institute have conducted studies that disprove these models, and show that overall the polar ice is maintaining a “steady state”.

“Previous ocean models … have predicted temperatures and melt rates that are too high, suggesting a significant mass loss in this region that is actually not taking place,” says Tore Hattermann of the Norwegian Polar Institute, member of a team which has obtained two years’ worth of direct measurements below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctica – the first ever to be taken.

According to a statement from the American Geophysical Union, announcing the new research:

It turns out that past studies, which were based on computer models without any direct data for comparison or guidance, overestimate the water temperatures and extent of melting beneath the Fimbul Ice Shelf. This has led to the misconception, Hattermann said, that the ice shelf is losing mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass, leading to an overall loss of mass.

The team’s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted …

Hatterman and his colleagues, using 12 tons of hot-water drilling equipment, bored three holes more than 200m deep through the Fimbul Shelf, which spans an area roughly twice the size of New Jersey. The location of each hole was cunningly chosen so that the various pathways by which water moves beneath the ice shelf could be observed, and instruments were lowered down.

Overall, according to the team, their field data shows “steady state mass balance” on the eastern Antarctic coasts – ie, that no ice is being lost from the massive shelves there.
