In Indonesia, Kerry blasts
climate change deniers

Associated Press, by Matthew Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/16/2014 1:25:13 PM

Jakarta, Indonesia - Climate change may be the world´s "most fearsome" weapon of mass destruction and urgent global action is needed to combat it, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, comparing those who deny its existence or question its causes to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials in Jakarta, Kerry laid into climate change skeptics, accusing them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay measures needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. He also went after those

Comments:
"Global warming" is indeed a dangerous government weapon designed to drive us all into poverty, and a most profitable weapon one at that. Good thing for the liars and frauds that the so-called opposition keeps funding "global warming," and refusing to prosecute the criminals who create it.

While he´s in Indonesia, Boston is digging out from yet another snowfall. I guess it´s hard to preach global warming when you have icicles hanging from your ample nose and ear lobes.

Two feet of snow, sleet and ice on my roof, and absolutely nobody has any roof rakes for sale.

The entire world is in denial of what is plain as day.

Global Warming is a total scam.

This is so embarrassing. This buffon is talking about global warming - aka climate change like if he knows what he is talking about and trying to convince people that "the government" can change mother nature while the middle east is on fire. This from the people that cannot make a website that works. It is infuriating.

Okay, John. You and Teresa give up the house on Nantucket, the house in Italy, the house in Aspen, the townhouse on Beacon Hill, and the townhouse in Georgetown; get rid of the fleet of limousines, SUVs, and private jets and helicopters; move to a four room apartment and get around on foot, by bicycle, or subway, and then we´ll talk.

The seven billion dollar 76" yacht that he tried to park in neighboring Rhode Island to avoid having to pay Massachusetts property tax on it. What a guy!

We sure dodged a bullet not implementing Kyoto in 1997. Had we, the current 15 year slack in warming would have been entirely credited to those actions, and we´d be locked into a cycle of anti-industrialism.

Obama flies to Palm Springs on an enormous 747 for 3 days of golf with his Choom drug gang. The Mooch flies on a 757 to Aspen for a separate ski vacation. Kerry flies 12,000 miles to Indonesia for a speech to students and government officials about man caused global cataclysm. After their brazen consumption of energy, we are then criticized for not taking an imaginary fear seriously. Worse, we are forced to buy cars we don´t want, to fund wasteful green projects that enrich Obama´s cronies and to pay ever higher rates for electricity. Our country has gone mad.

If AGW (man caused global warming) is a weapon of mass destruction, its being carried by a million snails that don´t have compasses. For the last 16 years there is no evidence that the climate has warmed. However, because hydraulic fracturing to produce oil has liberated so much gas as a by-product, its cost is now competitive with coal and many power plants have done a partial replacement. Economics not government drive change.

Lemme see: the predictions of the AGW computer projections have for the most part proved false.

Critical to the scientific method is the ability of a model or theory to predict something that cannot be explained by other models or theories. (Familiar examples include nuclear fusion and black holes.) Hindsight is 20/20, as they say: prove your model by predicting something accurately, for a change.

Who, again, are the deniers?

Too hot- global warming ; too cold- global warming; too wet- global warming; too dry- global warming; tornadoes- global warming; hurricanes- Global warming; tsunami-global warming; earthquakes-global warming; windy- global warming.......

Barry takes a 747 from DC to CA to play golf at billionaires private course in the desert where it takes thousands of gallons of scarce water to keep it green while complaining about a record drought caused by CO2 emissions. Meanwhile Michelle takes another jet to CO for a weekend ski vacation. At the same time John Kerry flies to Indonesia to deliver a message that Man Caused Climate change is the new weapon of mass destruction and will destroy all of us if trillions are not spent (taxed first) to stop it. All tolled their trips including at least 3 large cargo planes full of large gas guzzling SUVs and support equipment spew over 6400 tons of CO2 in just this one weekend. The average car puts out 5.1 tons of CO2 in an entire year which means that in just one weekend these fear mongering climate zealots put out the equivalent of 1200 cars yearly CO2 output! I doubt you´ll see any articles in the main stream media making this point.

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

Four days after a downgraded credit rating, New Jersey has more bad financial news: Tax collections were once again short of Governor Christie’s already lowered expectations. This time, the gap was $145 million for March – a full 7 percent short of what Christie projected for the month, according to data released Monday by the state Department of Treasury. That means the Christie administration has to make up that gap with just three months left in the state’s fiscal year, time that includes the crucial income tax collection month of April. Already, the administration has said it cut nearly $700

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
