Polar Vortex Crosses Red Line in Climate War

140226-climate-polar vortex-red-line

 

The Polar Vortex is back. Used to be March just came in like a lion.

It doesn’t matter. Lions, lambs, vortexes, snow, rain, drought, ObamaCare – it’s all your fault. All things are made by man-caused global warming. Al Gore says so, JohnKerry says so, and President Obama says so.

 Vortex of Climate Change

So, if you like your polar vortex, you can keep your polar vortex. Period.

Update:

Here’s Victor Davis Hanson on Obama’s many red lines.

Settled Science

140222-settled-science -denier-galileo-climate changeThe Settled Science is unsettling. President Obama began last week with a trip to California where he blamed the drought on Global warming, aka Climate Change. Most climate change models predict warming will cause a wet California.

More Settled Science

Then John Kerry dragged the State Department into the act by proclaiming Climate Change to be the world’s greatest weapon of mass destruction. He added that only shoddy scientists disagree. Here’s is Dr. Krauthammer’s diagnosis.

This Forbes piece shows that 31,000 scientists might not like being called “flat earthers”  by Kerry and his fellow climate McCarthyites.

Update:

Krauthammer, in the piece mentioned above, says insisting the science is settled is “a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate”. Sure enough, environmental activists launched a petition demanding that the Washington Post not publish his column.

Polar Vortex

140107-polar-vortex-cartoonUntil it got really cold this week I had never heard of a polar vortex. Thanks to The Weather Channel I’ve learned it means we swapped weather with Fairbanks.

Same goes for a Derecho, which I learned last summer means rain storm.

I’ve also learned The Weather Channel has acquired naming rights to the weather. This week’s polar vortex is named Ion.

Scientists Stuck in the Ice

If you’re a traveler stranded  by snow, ice, and sub zero temps this weekend you’re not alone.

Scientists Stuck in the Ice

A boatload of scientists on their way to measure the loss of antarctic sea ice got stuck in the ice. They were rescued by helicopter for evacuation to a Chinese ship – which is now also stuck in the global warming denying ice. Fortunately the scientists planned ahead and planted trees to offset their carbon emissions.

Update: I know weather isn’t climate but still…

And finally – Mark Steyn, Ship of Fools

Light Bulb Ban

140103-bulbsquad-light-bulb-banIt’s 2014 and, thanks to President Bush, the creation of incandescent light bulbs is now banned.

Will mercury contamination from EPA mandated fluorescent lightbulbs become the lead paint issue of the future?

Light Bulb Ban

A story in the Washington Examiner blames the light bulb ban on a conspiracy between big makers of the low margin bulbs and government.
