Snow in Malibu – Tin Ear Pelosi Calls For Global Warming Committee


Mount_lagunaWell, you can say this about liberals, they sure do not have a good sense of timing. The day after there is record cold on the west coast (Snow in Malibu!) and people are dying across the country from a horrific storm, Nancy Pelosi introduces her global warming committee to stop global warming.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to create a special committee Thursday in an effort to jump-start long-delayed government efforts to deal with global warming and produce a bill by Independence Day.
Pelosi, D-Calif., said the committee would hold hearings and recommend legislation on how to reduce greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide generated by fossil fuels, that most scientists blame for a gradual warming of the earth’s climate.
“I promise to do everything in my power to achieve energy independence … and to stop global warming,” Pelosi said.  via BREITBART.COM

First, the cabal against global warming is one of the most anti US groups out there. Did you ever wonder why the same people screaming about jobs going overseas to China are the same ones expecting the United States to adhere to the Kyoto Treaty, but not the Chinese? C’mon folks, it is another “lets knock the United States down a peg” internationalist move.

Ranting-al-goreRemember, when it is snowing in Malibu, global warming might be just a state of mind. Which reminds me, the phenomenon is called the Gore Effect:

The well documented phenomenon that leads to very low, unseasonal temperatures, driving rain, hail, snow or all of the above whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global “warming”. Hence the “Gore Effect.”

      are you aware of the fact that it was 70 in ny last weekend?

    2. Scared Monkeys on January 18th, 2007 5:34 pm

      Everybody knows that Global warming causes cold temperatures. Global warming casues warm temps.

      Global warming was also blamed for the reason why the SD Chargers lost to the Patriots last weekend. Or was that blamed on GWB?


    3. Scared Monkeys on January 18th, 2007 5:36 pm


      Are you aware it was in the 30′s in the South? I bet a bunch of Gators, Bama and Vols would argue about warm temps.

      Funny how it all seems to even out.

      Even the NASA scientists believe that Global Warming is in fact a real threat, and they are by and large a conservative group. I know many of them, and we have discussed this subject quite often. If you trust their science to get us into space and back, then you have to trust their opinions on Global Warming as well. The polar ice caps are monitored from space when a shuttle is in flight, and that data is analyzed by scientists the world over, as well as some of the NASA experts. There are many signs that the Earth is getting warmer, and to politicize it is a big mistake. I do not understand why people can’t seem to understand that human beings have left their mark on the environment, and in most cases it is in a negative way. We have been very poor stewards of our planet, and
      just because there are winter storms does not mean that our Earth’s temperature is not heating up, and that we have not harmed our planet. That’s a short-sighted view of the real problem. Just because someone may not care for Al Gore does not mean that we don’t have a serious problem with our climate. It is a human predicament, not a strickly American political issue. If everyone on the planet does not recognize what we face, then we all will suffer, no matter where on Earth we reside, or what kind of governments run our countries.

      There was once a joke told by Jack Benny that went something like this. “If you want to torture someone, send them to live in Southern California. One day it’s freezing, the next day it’s boiling, then freezing then boiling, etc.”

      A little over a week ago, temps here were in the 80s, the Santa Anas blew in and Malibu caught on fire. The fires reached to the ocean and Suzanne Summer’s multi million dollar house burned to the ground.

      Now Malibu has enough snow to make snowmen, throw snowballs, etc. Maybe Jack Benny was right.

    7. dennisintn on January 18th, 2007 7:30 pm

      is pelosi’s committee on global warming good or what? they haven’t even organized it yet and the problem’s all ready cured. what a bunch of brilliant democrats. anybody see anything wrong with this picture?

    8. Scrapiron on January 18th, 2007 8:01 pm

      Dhimmi’s are blind, deaf and ‘dum’ they won’t notice anything.

    9. Mortella on January 18th, 2007 8:17 pm

      Must depend on which “scientists at Nasa” one speaks to because the ones I have talked to agree that weather is cyclical. We only have records going back 300 years and in order to know the true range of “normal” weather, that is a few thousand short.

      Also, it might be easier to take all this more seriously if the same people had not in the 1970′s assured us of a return of the Ice Age. I don’t believe that weather cycles are affected by humans to any great degree and don’t see any evidence to support this. That is, unless we can control things like magnetic polar shifts and what gases are fueling the sun at any given time.

      Ever notice that Al Gore’s books are almost identical to the Unabomber’s Manifesto? I just don’t think I want to take my information on climate from someone who not only flunked out of law school but seminary college as well. No formal education in science, not even a graduate degree but he seems to be the Poster Boy for the Liberal Left on all things related to science.

      Well, I am forgetting how he invented the Internet, after all. ;-)

      And what a co-incidence that the UN and the EU are all worked up about this! They see a wonderful way to tax the U.S. based on some sort of fuel consumption in all this. It’s like a dream come true for them as finding some way to tax this country is ever on their minds. I just hope we will not be stupid enough to give them the means to do so.

      Remember when one of their spokespersons following that Tsunami wanted to demand certain percentages for charity from the U.S.? Never mind we work a fifty week work year while they get at least a month, often up to three, for vacation. What’s wrong with this picture of us contributing MORE while working longer hours to achieve the GDP we have?

      Tax the productive to support the non-productive is what is behind the global warming scam. I hope we are not going to fall for this. We are already stuck with the bulk of the bills for the UN, NATO and everything else on the planet that can even remotely be hung on us.

      THINK, people! Weather is dictated by everything from solar flares to the solar system’s orbit through space. And know that anything you agree to is eventually going to lead to this global taxation with guess who paying the lion’s share once again?

    10. Mortella on January 18th, 2007 8:21 pm

      Besides, Naughty Nancy would rather talk about anything other than now many big employers (contributors??) in her district are exempt from that minimum wage law she just rammed through congress.

      I understand quite a few huge companies where she lives are totally exempt so it is the rest of the country that can expect the job loss that always comes from this sort of legislation which is an artificial control of the financial sector and should never happen.

      Nancy thinks no one knows about all the jobs in her district that are not effected but she just might be surprised at the number of people who do.

      What happened to all that integrity we were supposed to now suddenly be seeing, hummmm????

    11. JustBearly on January 18th, 2007 8:51 pm

      I have always figured Mother Nature and the Cosmic higher powers that be will always have the final say as to what the Earths climate does. In the short term there may be unpredictable weather and climate shifts, but in the long run I think the Earth would correct itself and life would adapt. I am on the side that thinks the catch phrase “Global Warming”is a bunch of nonsense, and we could even be in for another ice age if Mother Nature decides thats whats best for our Earth.

      So go to REI and stock up on the warmest North Face apparrel because you may need it real soon.!!

    12. John McNary on January 18th, 2007 9:30 pm

      Hey, moron!

      Every reputable weather scientist in the world has said that global warming will cause strange oscillations.

      California is having the driest winter in years, and warmest winter ever. This week’s cold snap – average it with the 3 weeks this January we’ve had 85 degree highs – and it has been a hot January.

      The blizzards in Denver are another wonder of science that moron right wingers are making fun of.

      Fact: Colorado had the warmest December ever.
      Fact: Warmer air can carry more moisture.
      Fact: Warmer winter in Colorado means more snow.

      I don’t suppose you’ve noticed the cherry blossoms bloomikng in Washington DC?

      I suppose that would be another inconvenient truth, wouldn’t it?

    13. Patti on January 18th, 2007 10:26 pm

      What the heck?

      What I like about the weather is that it is ever changing.

      Too bad, though, about it being three weeks late!

      Merry Christmas, Anyway! Get the camera’s out, quick!

    14. Scared Monkeys on January 18th, 2007 11:17 pm

      I heard Nancy Pelosi’s committee with be stocking up on ice and turning their air conditioners up.

      We have all heard of the Presidential fireside chats … Pelosi will be having the Air conditioner screeches.

      I wonder who this committee will blame the ice age on? Was GWB alive then? Who knew the Neanderthals had developed the combustion engine? And I thought Al Gore had invested it also.

    15. MOLLY on January 18th, 2007 11:35 pm

      Can I go to jail for wishing a San Francisco trolley runs over this piece of peeeeelosi garbage ?..I believe in God, but I can’t grasp why he lets scum like this exist.

      Blast of Snow, Sleet Hits Texas, Okla.

      SAN ANTONIO (AP) – A bone-rattling blast of sleet and snow kept Texas and Oklahoma residents shivering in its icy grip, while a blizzard north of Los Angeles caused big-rigs to jackknife.

      Much of the brunt of the latest Southern storms was to move east Thursday – but the reprieve may be short-lived. Another barrage was to bring up to 8 inches snow to the Plains by late Friday.

      Students who enjoyed extended weekends after Martin Luther King Jr. Day were to head back to class Thursday in San Antonio, Houston and Austin as transportation officials reopened some roadways that were closed because of icy conditions.


      Elsewhere in the country, frigid conditions tested even those used to snow and ice. The entire state of Maine was no warmer than the single digits, and several communities saw dangerous wind chills. It was minus-16 degrees in Caribou.

      In New Hampshire, only about 825 of the more than 50,000 homes and businesses that lost power in the ice storm remained without power Thursday, said Martin Murray, a Public Service Company of New Hampshire spokesman.

      Freezing rain and some snow showers were reported across South Carolina early Thursday morning as some school districts delayed the start of classes.

    17. Rammstein on January 19th, 2007 2:28 am

      As someone from the Netherlands, we know like few others on this planet how important it is to stop global warning and the rising sea-levels. We may have great protection now against high water but we are in a race against the rising water and we know that if nothing is done to stop global warming it will ever more difficult to achieve safety for our people.


      SM: Ramm … ok, say there is an increase in the temp. What makes anyone think that they can alter what may naturally occur in nature?

      And let’s say for argument sake that it can be altered by some act of God … it is a political BS sham as developing nations do not even have to abide by any treaty limitations.

      If there truly is an issue, then why are not all countries treated the same? Somehow its the big bad US’s fault and we are supposed to make changes … as other countries industrialize. Yea


    18. Rammstein on January 19th, 2007 3:05 am

      Well SM, I think developing countries should also be forced to cut back and abide by treaties. Not immediately (they are not nearly polluting as much as we do) but when they too begin to cause real problems and have the money, they too have to abide by the rules.

      But it would be even easier if we make all these poor sunny countries our batteries for the future. The future could be hydrogen powered but that hydrogen has to be produced somewhere. Why not produce it where the sun is working at it’s hardest, in poor Africa?

      That way their economies are transformed and we get clean renewable energy that makes us less dependent on Arab countries.

    19. Scared Monkeys on January 19th, 2007 10:00 am

      Ramm … question?

      Do you think that there is any more powerful or unstopable power in the world than nature?

      Do you believe man can control nature? Just curious.


    20. chloe on January 19th, 2007 10:04 am

      Global warming is a reality, not a conspiracy theory. We live in Maryland and we now have plants that used to live only as far as North Carolina thriving here. What alarms me the most is the speed with which it is happening. I’m not sure what we can do to stop it, but I think it is worth looking at solutions.

    21. Rammstein on January 19th, 2007 10:41 am


      while I believe that nature is in a eternal state of flux, going from warmer to colder periods over hundreds and hundreds of years, I too believe that whatever we as “mankind” are doing to this planet is destabilizing the natural order of things with our pollution.

      Global warming IMHO and in the opinion of a lot of scientist, is not a natural phenomenon and that we caused the (what may already have been a natural upswing in temperature) unnatural speed and extend with which this earth is heating up.


      SM: If you believe in natural  flux, then how can it be man made. In the grand scope of things man is pretty insignificant when compared with the vast and powerful effects of nature.

      Honestly, most scientists like to hear themselves. How does one expalin the impending gloom & doom on the 70′s and the ice age that was coming? Those scientists were pretty adament too.

      How does one stop a volcanic erruption, an earthquake, tornado or hurricane? All put pollutants into the environment.

      If people were really truly serious about this, they would not make exceptions to the rules for countries that are not named America.

    22. LilPuma on January 19th, 2007 11:27 am

      Global warming or not, we have polluted our air and water to the point where sea life in areas not occupied by man and his machines and factories have pollutants in their systems. It’s easier to politicize it, laugh about it, deny the damage we’ve done to this planet than take responsibility for it and make the changes necessary. That would be too inconvenient and expensive for some. It’s not about Gore or Pelosi, it’s about mankind maintaining the environment that supports human life. We’re failing at that.

    23. Scared Monkeys on January 19th, 2007 11:40 am

      Dr. Heidi Cullen is one of the crusaders for global warming and is using the Weather Channel as a soap box for the topic.

      She came out with a new blog post defending her opinions that global warming is fact. But please take a minute and read the comments, they are 99 percent against her positions, and are written by some fairly intelligent scientific minds.

      You will see some amazing arguements coming out against the global warming myth.


    24. nurturer on January 19th, 2007 11:42 am

      #1 – Yeah, and it’s 25 degrees in Illinios. Life is a Pelosi.

    25. nurturer on January 19th, 2007 11:44 am

      #10 – You get the Congress you deserve.

    27. Miss-Underestimated on January 19th, 2007 12:03 pm

      How did we get out of the Ice Age, I guess global warming started back then?

    28. JusticeforNatalee on January 19th, 2007 12:32 pm

      I bet there is a lot of “snow” in Malibu or is it “blow.”

      I really don’t know my drug slang. LOL

      Seriously, though, I just saw “An Inconvenient Truth.”
      It is very informative and Al Gore is surprisingly interesting.

    29. Brenda on January 19th, 2007 2:23 pm

      Ok…so there are actually people out there who believe we have an effect on the temperature of this hugh planet. I’ve read meteorologists do NOT believe this.

      Also read that the dinosaurs may have died from “global warming”. Really?? Did the dragons spew too much fire and brimstone? Give me a break.

      Nothing more than normal swing in temperature throughout the ages.


    30. Brenda on January 19th, 2007 2:25 pm

      Oh yeah, and Al Gore’s picture should be enough for every human drawing breath to thank their lucky stars he wasn’t elected President.

      What a freak job he is!!!


    31. pdh3 on January 19th, 2007 3:35 pm

      As long as the majority of Americans see Global Warming as a political issue instead of an environmental and health issue, there will be nothing done, and people will not change their ways.
      Every time you see a new subdivision being developed, or a new highway being built, ask yourself what happened to the wildlife they displaced, the trees that were cut down, and the pollution and demands on resources that will occur. Then tell yourself that human beings are making no impact on our planet, and that environmental issues are just junk science, and a political platform for people you don’t like. I’m not saying that people don’t need homes, or that road improvements don’t need to be made, but we can do it
      in such a way as to limit the impact.
      Mortella…..I have many NASA friends who have been directly responsible for the space shuttle, space stations, and a few who were on Von Braun’s Rocket Team. These are respected scientists who have proven their scientific talent.From the data they have seen of the changes of the Earth over the last 20 years, many of them are seriously concerned. And they are overwhelmingly politically conservative. That is my point. They are able to separate science from politics. I respect their abilities and opinions. Of course not all of them agree on the level of danger, but they can all see that humans are harming the Earth.
      I don’t support Nancy Pelosi or Al Gore, but I am concerned with the fact of Global Warming. I think people confuse natural climate rhythmns with permanent harm that could one day be irreversible.
      The only reason Global Warming is not popular with Republicans is because big business, like the oil companies, do not want to cut into their already enormous profits. The bottom line is more attractive to them than a healthy planet. This reminds me of the tobacco companies who knew their product was deadly as early as the 1930′s, but with millions of dollars at stake, did nothing to stop production, and increased the levels of nicotine to increase profits. They also disputed the scientific evidence for 70 years until it could no longer be denied.

    32. SUPER DAVE on January 19th, 2007 3:59 pm

      pack ice is not forming nearly as early in Canada and Alaska. the polar bears cannot hunt seals without the pack ice. therefore , they are beginning to eat each other. global warming is real. the glaciers are melting at an alarming rate . because of this polar bears and other artic animals will become extinct in our own childrens life time. if the democrats are truly for saving the environment good for them. as for the republicans? we know their only concern !

    33. LilPuma on January 19th, 2007 5:59 pm

      #29. I don’t know what the dinosaurs died of but they are dead. If we ignore what’s happening to this planet we will be too.

    34. Jamie on January 19th, 2007 7:39 pm

      It’s really a shame that the issue of global warming has to be identified in a bad way with those who are the most ardent supporters of turning the tide on the destruction of the environment. This is symptomatic of a much bigger problem. One that leads people to make all sorts of ridiculous comments. For example, there is also talk about the “right-wing Christian coalition” going after the movie Happy Feet because “it advocates homosexuality and discusses global warming.” Instead of everyone jumping on a bandwagon when they really don’t know how to play the music, wouldn’t it make more sense to do a small bit of research about what is truly happening in our world? Every reputable scientific study blames global warming on the way man is destroying the environment. The only people speaking out against it are the conservatives who don’t want to acknowledge that the people who put their president in the White House are the same ones who are causing the most pollution i.e. energy people (coal and oil – for those of you who don’t get what this has to do with energy). How can you expect GW to lower the limits on carbon dioxide emissions when the people who own the power plants creating it are his biggest campaign backers? That is a fact and it is also a fact that he tied Christine Whitman’s hands so much that she left her position as head of the EPA because she couldn’t stand the fact that he wouldn’t even lower the acceptable levels of arsenic in our drinking water to the levels that she did as governor of N.J. People need to do their own research and use their own heads and find out how serious the problem is and what we can do to reverse it before it’s too late. Forget the politics and think about our kids and grandchildren and their children. The studies show that in as little as 20 years, the ocean level will be 20 feet higher. That means that an awful lot of land will be under water. It isn’t a laughing matter, nor a political issue. But, thank goodness that there are politicians who are taking the issue seriously and maybe they can make some changes. It’s better than having our politicians laughing at the issue and making believe it doesn’t exist. They said the same thing about acid rain and they finally had to acknowledge the reality of that because there was no other way for all of that destruction to be done to the streams and lakes and buildings besides the burning of fossil fuels. This shouldn’t be a debate. it should be something to bring people together to find solutions instead of sitting back and making believe it doesn’t exist.

      If every politician actually did what they said they were going to do, this would be the perfect world. instead, they say these things and make these promises just to get into office to waste our hard earned tax money.
      government officials should be paid minimum wages and be made to drive the cheapest vehicles and to fly coach. i guarantee you that you would see very few of them running for office. let them go without medical insurance and benefits for their kids and worry if your next house payment will be made on time or not !

    37. Brenda on January 23rd, 2007 1:54 pm

      Good Lord Super Dave… are Super Silly!!!

      You actually believe honest politicians could make this world perfect? No surprise you also believe in global warming.


    38. Jamie on January 23rd, 2007 10:41 pm

      That has to be a joke, right Brenda? You can’t possibly be living in the real world and not believe in global warming.

    39. Mike on January 31st, 2007 4:40 pm

      I hate to disappoint you but I dont believe it either Jamie. I dont believe ONE THING any politician or scientist tells me. Not with all the fraud and corruption in the world today. There are far too many people out there pushing their personal agenda and hoping to get paid in exchange for junk scientific reports that I laugh at all of them. And many people are of the same opinion.

      There are more of us out there than you wish to believe. There are tons of web sites out there which dont believe you Jamie, too. Two sites I just ran into prior to this one were and More people think global warming is junk science that you can imagine and for damn good reason.

      And, no, I dont listen to Rush Limbaugh or however you spell his name.

      I find it completely arrogant to even CONSIDER that in 150 years we peons could have destroyed a planet. After all, the planet is 5-something BILLION years old and 150 years of “records” dont make me believe WE are doing it.

      Is the Earth changing? Sure is. THAT I believe. Is everyone whining and moaning because their playground is possibly going to be destroyed? You bet. That is all it comes down to, people whining and complaining that their houses already on stilts will be 50 yards further out into the ocean.

      Lets see who we all blame for the next ice storm or hurricane. Eventually you’re going to run out of people to blame and realize that the Earth is going through a cycle as it does and has done for over 5 billion years and if it wants to KILL US ALL, then who the F are we to stop it? THAT is the arrogance that I sense in everyone who thinks we created the problem so we should fix it.

      Its not broken. Its life.
