Patrick Moore, Co-Founder of Greenpeace Says “There is No Scientific Evidence that Humans are the “Dominant Cause” of Climate Change
So much for “settled science” on global warming/climate change, eh Barack …
Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace said on Tuesday in front of a Senate panel that there is no scientific evidence to back claims that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change. Hold the phone, a co-founder of Green Peace said what? Moore was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, but he left the organization in 1986, accusing the organization of political activism and being more interested in politics, rather than concern for the environment.
Um, how do we lie to Americans now?
A co-founder of Greenpeace told a Senate panel on Tuesday that there is no scientific evidence to back claims that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change.
Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like Greenpeace use faulty computer models and scare tactics in further promoting a political agenda, Fox News reported.
“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” Mr. Moore said. “Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species.
“The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming,” he said.
Patrick Moore, Greenpeace Co-Founder, Says ‘No Scientific Proof’ Climate Change Is Caused By Humans. … it is as simple as this:
“Perhaps the simplest way to expose the fallacy of ‘extreme certainty’ is to look at the historical record. …When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today. There is some correlation, but little evidence, to support a direct causal relationship between CO2 and global temperature through the millennia,” Moore argued
Global warming, eh?
USA Today is reporting that 49 out of 50 US states have snow on the ground. Of course for Barack Obama that would be 49 out of 57 states. Of course some states have more snow cover than other, like areas of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey that are getting hammered by the latest snowmegeddon. Other areas in the South like Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas were also pounded by snow and ice and from the latest storm.
Chart from NOAA
Snow is on the ground in 49 out of the 50 states — only the Sunshine State of Florida is completely snow-free, according to a map produced Thursday morning by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
(This doesn’t mean that those 49 states are snow-covered, of course, only that some part of each state has snow.)
Although this map doesn’t show it, there is snow in Hawaii, where webcams are showing snow on the high peaks of the mountain volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
The map also doesn’t include Alaska, but it’s a given that most of that state is snow-covered this time of year. A quick check with the National Weather Service forecast office in Fairbanks found 19 inches of snow on the ground there.
But of course according to Al Gore and Barack Obama, it is settled science, it’s global warming.
- Siting “The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures..”. Fast forward to January 2014 and the affects of the Polar Vortex!
UPDATE I: More Global warming at Drudge, but f course the Libs say that the global warming is responsible for the cold weather. Of course rational thinking folks on the right know better. For years those who dared question global warming were called crazy and extremists. Hmm … sounds more like the climatologists who spew everything is caused by global warming are sounding a bit crazy these days.

Daily Commentary – Monday, January 6, 2014 – Global Warming as Record Breaking COLD Hits Accross the United States?
- This past weekend, much of the Northeast was stuck in a “Polar Vortex” causing record breaking cold
I Smell More Global Warming … 2014 Ushered in With Record Low Temperatures and Massive Snow Storm … Get Ready for ‘Hercules’
A funny thing happened on the way to global warming, abnormally cold temperatures break out …
2014 has been ushered in with abnormally cold temperatures in the United States. Across the US record low temperatures are being experienced that would make even Al Gore maybe question is own BS. And it is not just America, our friends in the ‘Great White North’ are experiencing incredible low temperatures as well. CNC News is reporting that Manitoba, Canada the Manitoba Museum is reporting Winnipeg’s temperatures on Tuesday were actually as cold as the surface of Mars at -29 C (-20 F) at 3 pm.
The recent surge of arctic air in Wisconsin has led to record-breaking low temperatures in places like Owen, a Clark County town that hit minus 31 degrees this week.
A La Crosse Tribune report says records were tied or broken in about half a dozen cities in the region.
The La Crosse airport hit a low of minus 17 degrees. That tied a record set in 1976. Friendship also tied a record with temperatures of minus 22.
Owen got down to minus 31 degrees, two degrees colder than the previous record set in 1963.
Zack Taylor is a meteorologist with the National Weather service. He says the cold is part of an arctic front. He says temperatures should warm up a tad later this week, but another arctic front could arrive by the weekend.
Cold, blustery conditions will push across the northern Plains and the upper Midwest on Tuesday as an arctic air mass sweeps across the region.
WCCO meteorologists are forecasting the coldest New Year’s Eve ever in International Falls, Minn. The forecast is a low of -39° (the old record is -38°).
Temperatures are expected to be 20 to 30 degrees below normal in North Dakota and Minnesota, while a line of snow showers will move across the area. The heaviest snow is expected to develop in the Dakotas, southern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
But of course the global warming crowd is still at it trying to tell you that dinosaurs are coming back because of global warming.
Get ready for HERCULES … Good grief, why do we name snow storms, I mean really?
The storm, predicted to affect the USA from the upper Midwest to the East Coast, is expected to bring the heaviest snow across southern New England on Thursday and early Friday.
“Over a foot of snow will fall in localized areas of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut and the cities of Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston,” predicted AccuWeather meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Lesser amounts, in the 6- to 12-inch range, are likely in northeastern Pennsylvania, in New Jersey and in southeastern New York state.
A note to the folks in New York and Boston as you are reading those global warming stories, hunker down and get ready for “snowmageddon” as AccuWeather is reporting that a major snowstorm will reach from across part of the Midwest to the central Appalachians and New England Thursday into Friday and a blizzard will evolve from the storm in parts of the Northeast.
The storm will affect more than 70 million people in the Midwest and the Northeast combined and could have a major negative impact on travel for people returning from holiday destinations, heading back to school or resuming business activities.
It will be far from the worst storm to ever hit the area, but people should be prepared for flight delays and cancellations because of direct and indirect impacts from the far-reaching storm. Some roads may even close for a time.
They Said What … NewsBusters Dopiest Quotes of 2013 … The “Audacity of Dopes Award for the Wackiest Analysis of the Year”
Newsbusters has the “Dopiest” quotes of 2013 and let me just say they are pretty damn dopey … Should it be considered the ‘Audacity of Dope” or “Dope and Change”? Incredibly, there were probably so many to pick from, the following are the winners, they said what?
1. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, for a Big Brother-esque “Lean Forward” promo that began airing on her network in early April.
I bet Americans did not know that kids belong to their parents and their families. Nope, not in the eyes of socialists in the media. This goes beyond Hillary Clinton’s notion that ‘it takes a village’. Americans should just say a collective, YIKES!!!
“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have, because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children …. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children ….We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”
2. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman on April 21 thought he had the perfect argument for his longstanding quest for a prosperity-suffocating tax on fossil fuels. This liberal, anti-fossil fuel, global warming columnist actually had the audacity to link the Boston Marathon massacre terror bombing by the Tsarnaev brothers as an excuse to exploit it and call for carbon taxes. Some one really needs to explain the connection other than liberal dribble. Because we can see that they really cared about global warming.
“Until we fully understand what turned two brothers who allegedly perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings into murderers, it is hard to make any policy recommendation other than this: We need to redouble our efforts to make America stronger and healthier so it remains a vibrant counterexample to whatever bigoted ideology may have gripped these young men….And the best place to start is with a carbon tax.”
Read and listen to the rest at Newsbusters that includes the incredible notion that the media slants to the right and the part that makes the Christmas season too stressful, is the religious stuff.

More Executive Orders from The Imperial President Obama Creating “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” to Implement “Climate Change” Agenda
WAKE UP AMERICA, STOP THE TYRANNY!!! Barack Obama, the Imperial president is at it again with his global warming, oh sorry, “climate change” agenda …
The Halloween season, but nothing should be more scary to Americans that Barack Obama and his liberal, socialist agenda. It would appear that the imperial president is at it again, as The Daily Caller reports, on Friday issued an executive order titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.” Obama knows that nothing like this would ever pass through Congress, so instead the Obamamessiah looks to devastate, regulate and control the economy even more through executive fiat. As if Obama has not done enough to destroy jobs, put record number of people on food stamps, destroy the coal industry, devastate the economy with Obamacare and now this? He will not be happy until he turns the United States on its head into something that you do not even recognize.
This is what you get from a community agitator, an individual that says the hell with the US Constitution and looks to just force his agenda without consent of the will of the people. Folks, this is what tyranny looks like. Obama is proving to be nothing more than a menace.
Brought to you by the president who delivered “cash for clunkers,” the “billion dollar “stimulus” plan, promises of a job recovery and Obamacare that has caused more Americans to lose their insurance than enroll in it.
President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property.
Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween.
The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.”
The new order was issued even though recent scientific data have contradicted claims that use of carbon energy — such as gasoline — will drive up the world’s temperature and induce damaging climate change. Average temperatures have leveled for more than a decade, despite the sharply rising use of carbon energy in China and other countries.
U.S. use of carbon energy has stabilized with increasing market-driven efficiency and tightening regulations. (Read Full story)
Just curious Barack, how is it possible that the Earth has gone through a myriad of climate changes, both cooling and warming, before man ever had any type of impact on the environment?
This is just another federal government grab … when will Americans ever take back their liberty and freedom on which this country was founded?
Say it isn’t so …
So much for that settled science that there is global warming, as reported at the UK Telegraph, there actually appears to be global cooling. Hmm, a cold Arctic summer has led to a record 60% increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling. The NRO has the 2012 statement from the BBC with their ridiculous global warming, Arctic sea predictions.
There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.
In a rebound from 2012′s record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
Al Gore was unavailable for comment.
President Barack Obama: ‘Planet Will Boil Over’ If Young Africans Are Allowed Cars, Air-Conditioning, Big Houses
No he didn’t … HOW RACIST!!!
Lion Lying King – Africa Edition: While on his $100 million trip to Africa, President Barack Obama told individuals at a town hall that if all young Africans are allowed cars, air conditioners and big houses, that the plant would boil over. WHAT!!! No, this was not an SNL skit of Obama, it was actually Barack Obama further embarrassing himself. Obama lectures the young Africans in the audience that they had to have skin in the game and everyone has to do something. Obama also went on to say that global warming constitutes “the biggest challenge we have environmentally,” one greater than all other environmental calamities like “dirty water, dirty air.” Even though that is a lie. So now Obama spreads his politics of fear and lies outside the US?
Just curious, how would such a statement been received by the MSM had Mitt Romney made the same one?
From CNS News:
President Barack Obama said at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday that unless we find new way of producing energy “the planet will boil over” if people in Africa are allowed to attain air conditioning, automobiles and big houses.
“Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy.”
The VIDEO can be seen at The Gateway Pundit and Jim reminds us … “He’s always trying to keep the black man down”.
According to Obama, global warming constitutes “the biggest challenge we have environmentally,” one greater than all other environmental calamities like “dirty water, dirty air.”
However, the President’s statements do not reflect statistics released by the United Nations: Based on a data released in October, 2012, the World Health Organization estimated that “Global warming” is responsible for approximately 140,000 excess deaths each year.
By comparison, as many as three million people died from indoor and outdoor air pollution – in other words, over 20 times the number of alleged victims of global warming, according to the Word Health Organization.
The list of victims of unclean drinking water is even more staggering.
According to UNESCO, unsanitized water causes billions of preventable diseases annually, from diarrhea (4 billion), cholera (120,000), malaria (300-500 million), intestinal parasites (25% of world’s population), typhoid (12 million), trachoma (6 million), and schistosomiesis (200 million). list from highest to least affected.
