The climate change alarmists were alerting us to the “coming ice age” in the 1970‘s.
Then the earth began to warm in the early to mid 1990‘s so the alamists quietly changed to champion “global warming.”
When the earth stopped warming and began to cool their battle cry changed to “climate change” allowing them to cover any eventuality. Very convenient.
One commenter write:
The “global warming” industry is a vehicle for political and monetary graft that is grasping for relevancy by further stirring up manufactured fear in order to maintain itself, in other words, it has become “too big to fail”, but fail it will as the natural complex environment fails to follow the simplistic, and weighted for a specific result, computer models.
The LA Times has a report (see link below) titled, “West Coast warming linked to naturally occurring changes.”
Naturally occurring changes in winds, not human-caused climate change, are responsible for most of the warming on land and in the sea along the West Coast of North America over the last century, a study has found.
The analysis challenges assumptions that the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been a significant driver of the increase in temperatures observed over many decades in the ocean and along the coastline from Alaska to California.
Al Gore has not yet commented on this LA Times report.
The imminent climate summit in New York is rapidly turning into an utter embarrassment for President Obama and UN Secretary General Bank Ki-Moon.
The list of prominent world leaders not attending include:
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott
Chinese President Xi Jinping
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper
German Chancellor Angela Merkel
We like the somewhat tongue-in-cheek comment at the end of the report:
Of course, things would probably have been totally different, if the summit organizers had guaranteed that attendees would definitely not have to sit through any more boring climate presentations by former Vice President Al Gore.
