Major report warns climate change
could raise temperatures by 10 degrees

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ben Geman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2013 1:34:10 PM

A major draft federal report concludes that climate change is already affecting U.S. residents through heat waves, droughts and other changes, and warns that temperatures could increase as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit if global carbon emissions keep soaring. The third National Climate Assessment, released Friday, said there’s “unambiguous evidence” that earth is warming, and that climate change over the past 50 years is driven primarily by human activity, especially from burning fossil fuels. “Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense, including heat waves,

Comments:
Right on cue they start laying the groundwork for cap and trade. Lamar Alexander says "I believe climate change is due to a combination of factors..." For a Republican to even utter those words is pure insanity. No wonder we are in such trouble in Washington.

It´s Whack A Mole time for climate change!
It has nothing to do with carbon emissions but there is a lot of Green in pretending- just ask Al Gorzeela!

This released just after the international scientists stood up and said there was no man made increase in temps.
They think us stupid.
The earth is warming, and has been for 21k yrs or so.
We didn´t do it and we cannot tax it away.
When it gets down to the cutting, we should eat the scientists first.

I feel confident enough to predict that by August 1, 2013 the temperature in NYC will be more than 20 degrees higher than it is today.

The national assessments have always been founded on the IPCC. Now that the IPCC has said there has been no warming despite a very significant increase in man based CO2, This federal body has to move in an protect their ability to raise taxes based on carbon emissions.

From the report: "Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense"

These are the same goobers who told us - - post-Katrina - - that glo-bull warming was making hurricanes "more frequent and/or intense" - - and yet - -

- - and yet since they made that "scientific projection" 7 1/2 years ago not a single Category 3 hurricane has struck the US mainland. Or - - to put it in their style of rhetoric - - "the longest period without a hurricane EVER!"

There´s no shaming or embarrassing these people. They lust after government grant money - - and they´ll write or do anything to get it.

There seems to be an open competition to produce the most outrageous predictions while staying within the settled parameters of ´settled science´. The winners apparently get more government grants and two weeks at Disney World.

I would assume in a lower avg.income in this economy would put pressure on people to cut spending where thee can and energy consumption has to be one of them. Nobody is intentionally wasting energy except liberals living in huge mansions and flying private jets like AlGore.

Punishing people for using a necessity of life is an absurdity.They´re already complaining about the decrease in gas tax from hybrids which should mean less CO2,if in fact that´s causing GW,which I doubt. I don´t think the CO2 compound holds together in open space but I´m no scientist.

I love the verb ´could.´ Yes, the temperature could rise 10 degrees. It could also fall 10 degrees, or it could stay the same. No matter how the temperature changes, the initial statement is still true.

A major report, it´s a major report. The National Climate Assessment and Development and Advisory Committee was formed in 2010 and is part of the Commerce Dept. The scientific basis of the report is shaky at best. The chair of the committee has his phd in biology the two co-chairs are an economist and an environmental attorney. Propaganda and The Hill loves to spread it.

While we´re speculating let´s look at the other side. Trying to solve a climate change that turns out isn´t really happening could disrupt the economy so severely that there is mass starvation, war, and only a few million humans survive along with just a few animals and virtually no forest.

23 degrees in the AZ desert today, and colder the next 3 days. A probable record. This is anecdotal, and as useless as the basis for any warming data. People who advocate global warming are fools or criminals.

To see how preposterous global warming/climate change claims have become, simply think of a malady humans want to avoid. Take tooth decay. Do a search for tooth decay and global warming. Or flatulence and global warming. Or dandruff and global warming. Or obesity and global warming. Little remains on this planet, good or bad, that has not been "linked" to cyclic changes that were here long before we were, and will be here long after we are gone.

Aren´t these reporters about 5 years to late and didn´t see the recent reports that say human presence activities are causing GW´g.
If they did, why didn´t they come out then to contradict the "not people are causing warming report" but that lucky old sun that having episodes of higher level of raduation levels of UV and IR emissions.These warming guys are just looking for more research dollars and know they get them from you know who.

Just in time to save the NY times nine:

The New York Times will close its environment desk in the next few weeks and assign its seven reporters and two editors to other departments. The positions of environment editor and deputy environment editor are being eliminated. No decision has been made about the fate of the Green Blog, which is edited from the environment desk.

Record cold in China and Russia this year.

Coldest in China in three decades.

Hmmm... thought the "warming" was supposed to be "global"...

Guess the Chinese did not get the memo
...or cannot read plain English.
Or maybe it´s just in their Kommunist nature.
Uncooperative contrarians.

Orrrrrrr....
Mebbe the Chi-coms and Ruuskies are workin´ together to fake the cold wave,
so as to thwart any efforts to stop "Global Warming."
And soon, as we know, it´ll be "too late."
By this they intend to ruin the U.S.
All part of their Godless Diabolical Deviousness... Sha-Zammm.

It´s not global warming - like the pro abortion crowd prefer the phrase pro choice, warming alarmists prefer "climate change" these days. Getting colder? Climate change. Warmer? Climate change. If they could just explain what gas guzzlers they drove a hundred thousand years ago to cause that "climate change," then I´ll give them a hearing. Absurd and fatuous, just like Al the bore Gore.

It is embarrassing when our guys express ignorance on climate issues to the extent a leader in Congress and chairman of an relevant committee says that sun spots cause higher temperatures on Earth, apparently unaware that sunspots are only an indicator of solar activity.

It is vital we skeptics put our knowledgable people in Congress to thwart the ecochondriacs the correct way.

Maybe they should tax China and India (the 2 largest CO2 producers in the world) and mandate that those 2 countries drop their CO2 emissions to US levels.

Bet if the UN actually got seriously interested in taxing China and telling them how to run their industry, the entire man-made global warming nonsense would go away.

Of course, who actually believes that this is about the weather in the first place?

Reality Check!!
If anyone will bother to go check the ONLY truly global temperature set available -- NASA´s low atmosphere monitoring multiple satellite system, they will find the "global warming" ended about 2000 and has been flat ever since; and trending slightly downward the past couple of years.
And if you look at the whole 40 year record you will notice it looks a lot like a sine wave.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
