Scientists Plan to Block The Sun With Geo-Engineering to Combat Climate Change?


Reported By Andrew West March 27, 2017

The absurdity of the climate change hoaxers has taken a full step further into the bizarre as scientists from Harvard are planning a ridiculous stunt.

That the climate change hoax has persisted for this long, in the face of hard scientific evidence debunking the entire agenda, is a testament to the stubborn ignorance of the left.  By perpetuating the fallacy that we are on an unstoppable path to global destruction based on our own habits is the only way that some of these cockamamy liberals can legislate anything.  It’s their doom and gloom fear mongering that has helped to prolong the inevitable demise of their hoax.

Now, spurred on by these asinine ideas that have been allowed to fester, scientists from Harvard are moving forward with their insane plan to spray the sky with geo-engineered materials aimed at blocking the sun, all in the hopes of preventing the mythical global warming.

“Sometime next year, Harvard professors David Keith and Frank Keutsch hope to launch a high-altitude balloon, tethered to a gondola equipped with propellers and sensors, from a site in Tucson, Arizona. After initial engineering tests, the “Strato Cruiser” would spray a fine mist of materials such as sulfur dioxide, alumina, or calcium carbonate into the stratosphere. The sensors would then measure the reflectivity of the particles, the degree to which they disperse or coalesce, and the way they interact with other compounds in the atmosphere.

“The researchers first proposed these balloon experiments in a 2014 paper. But at a geoengineering conference in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Keith said they have begun engineering design work with Arizona test balloon company World View Enterprises. They’ve also started discussions about the appropriate governance structure for such an experiment, and they plan to set up an independent body to review their proposals.

“’We would like to have the first flights next year,’ he said at the Forum on U.S. Solar Geoengineering Research, held at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.”

The idea of spraying our atmosphere with heavy chemicals such as these is akin to throwing out the baby with the bathwater, in terms of the safety of all Americans.  While global warming has yet to cause a single fatality, the possibility of these experiments affecting a large swatch of humanity is very real.

Leave it to the left to come up with such a plan.

Study: West Antarctic – Poster Child of Global Warming – is Getting Colder

The West Antarctic has become yet another victim of global cooling.

According to the latest study, in Nature, it has experienced

“an absence of regional warming since the late 1990s”

while

“The annual mean temperature has decreased at a statistically significant rate, with the most rapid cooling during the Austral summer. Temperatures have decreased as a consequence of a greater frequency of cold, east-to-southeasterly winds, resulting from more cyclonic conditions in the northern Weddell Sea associated with a strengthening mid-latitude jet. These circulation changes have also increased the advection of sea ice towards the east coast of the peninsula, amplifying their effects.”

What all this means, in plain English, is that the climate alarmists have just gone and lost one of their most cherished poster children.

For over a decade, the rapidly rising temperatures in the Western Antarctic (aka the Antarctic Pensinsula) have featured very heavily in the litany of man-made climate doom stories unquestioningly swallowed by a compliant media.

Here’s NBC in 2013

The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest-warming places on Earth…Settled-Science-600-LA

Here is the BBC in 2012

A new analysis of temperature records indicates that the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet is warming nearly twice as fast as previously thought.

US researchers say they found the first evidence of warming during the southern hemisphere’s summer months.

They are worried that the increased melting of ice as a result of warmer temperatures could contribute to sea-level rise.

And here they were again in 2001

UK scientists say parts of Antarctica have recently been warming much faster than most of the rest of the Earth.

They believe the warming is probably without parallel for nearly two thousand years.Solid-Foundation-600-wLogo

This “fastest-warming place on earth” narrative has become so important to the activists who work in climate “science” that, even now, they can’t quite bring themselves to admit the devastating significance of this latest study.

And that includes the people who actually wrote it. That’s why – rather amusingly – they actually begin the abstract of their Nature study by pretending it’s business as usual.

Since the 1950s, research stations on the Antarctic Peninsula have recorded some of the largest increases in near-surface air temperature in the Southern Hemisphere1. This warming has contributed to the regional retreat of glaciers (2), disintegration of floating ice shelves3 and a ‘greening’ through the expansion in range of various flora (4). Several interlinked processes have been suggested as contributing to the warming, including stratospheric ozone depletion (5), local sea-ice loss6, an increase in westerly winds (5, 7), and changes in the strength and location of low–high-latitude atmospheric teleconnections.hysteria

You’d never guess from that intro, would you that this wasn’t yet another study demonstrating the impact of “global warming” in Antarctica? Still less would you guess that in fact what it was about to say was the precise opposite: that the supposedly fastest-warming place on the planet has in fact been cooling for at least the last 18 years.

As Jo Nova reports, the mainstream media has been driven to all manner of contortions to try to explain away the significance of this story.

Here’s a classic headline from Chris Mooney in the Washington Post.

Phew. So that’s OK then…

Portland public schools ban textbooks that cast doubt on climate change

WarningThe Portland Public Schools board voted last week to ban any materials that cast doubt on climate change, the Portland Tribune reported. According to the resolution passed May 17, the school district must remove any textbooks and other materials that suggest climate change is not occurring or that says human beings are not responsible for it.

“A lot of the text materials are kind of thick with the language of doubt, and obviously the science says otherwise,” said Bill Bigelow, a former Portland public school teacher who worked to present the resolution. Bigelow says textbook publishers are yielding to pressure from fossil fuels companies. “We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”Words

One commenter to the Portland Tribune story responded to the news, saying, “I have never seen a case for homeschooling more clearly put forward. This is further proof that public schools are not interested in education, only political indoctrination.”AMEN

A petition, meanwhile, circulated by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM) currently lists nearly 32,000 signers, including 9,000 Ph.D.s, who say, “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”hysteria

Still, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says addressing the issue of global warming will help to improve public health, according to U.S. News & World Report.

“I don’t want people to think that EPA is just about big rules, or that climate change is just about polar bears,” EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said. “It really is about direct public health issues like asthma and kids, like cardiovascular and pulmonary disease associated with air pollution.”Picture3

The Portland decision comes weeks after Yale University announced its climate change program will close at the end of June.

The shuttering follows three consecutive years of budget cuts for the program, which was established eight years ago to conduct climate change research. The impending closure was announced in an email from the institute’s co-directors, geology and geophysics professors David Bercovici and Jay Ague, and reported by the Yale Daily News.

“While not all good things have to come to an end, sometimes they just do,” the email dated May 2 said.

The Inconvenient Facts the Media Ignore About Climate Change

Americans in large numbers are turning off TV newscasts, canceling subscriptions to newspapers, and seeking other sources of news. Distrust of the national media has hit an all-time high. According to a recent Gallup poll, six in ten Americans now have little or no confidence in the national media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 65 percent of Americans believe that the national news media have a negative effect on our country.propaganda machine

Americans are frustrated because they know that many of the “news stories” they read are only opinion columns in disguise. If the story does not fit the liberal worldview, then facts are ignored, dissent is silenced, and Americans are told what to think. Perhaps one of the worst examples of one-sided, biased reporting involves global warming.

Those who reject the liberal viewpoint that climate change is the greatest threat to our country are ridiculed and ignored. For example, the Associated Press recently amended its stylebook to recommend that those who question the science behind global warming be called climate change “doubters” instead of “skeptics.” But this is inaccurate, since many “skeptics” don’t doubt that climate change has occurred.

Liberal groups continue to attempt to silence debate. The repeated claims that “the debate is over” and that “97 percent of scientists agree that human-caused global warming is real” are false and mislead the public. In testimony before the Science Committee, a lead author of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stated that the 97 percent estimate “just crumbles when you touch it.”Settled-Science-600-LA

The source of this “97 percent” myth is a discredited study that attempted to categorize scholarly articles on climate change by the position the papers took on the issue. But most of the papers never took a position on climate change at all. This has not stopped the liberal national media from touting this illegitimate statistic.

Silencing debate is contrary to the scientific method. If these groups were confident about their arguments, they would welcome more debate to test their theories. However, some media outlets, such as the Los Angeles Times, have changed their policies and no longer accept letters to the editor from those who question human-made climate change. That this would happen in a democracy where free speech is enshrined in the Constitution is unbelievable.

Scientists who are not alarmists agree that climate change is a complex subject with many variables. But the liberal national media instead chooses to focus on human contributions and usually fails to provide both sides.

For example, the national media hyped NASA’s finding that 2014 was the hottest year on record. Ignored was the footnote that revealed that NASA was only 38 percent certain this was accurate. Less than fifty-fifty. Americans would have been better served by a coin toss.Solid-Foundation-600-wLogo

Too often, these alarmist announcements are based on manipulations of existing data. And when Congress or independent researchers question federal agencies about the data, they are criticized as “attacking scientists.”

Particularly regrettable is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fails to include all relevant data sources in its monthly temperature news releases. Atmospheric satellite data, considered by many to be the most reliable, has clearly showed no warming for the past two decades. This fact is well documented, but it does not fit the liberal politics of the administration or the national media.Baal Worship

NOAA also published a controversial study last year where scientists altered global surface temperature data and widely publicized their results as refuting the two-decade pause in global warming. This week, a new peer-reviewed study was published in the journal Nature that, according to one of the authors, shows “reduced rates of surface warming” and “essentially refutes” NOAA’s study. Shouldn’t the media acknowledge that their alarmist headlines are based on incomplete information?Mantra

Americans will continue to distrust the liberal national media until the media provide objective coverage of the news. Americans deserve all the facts that surround climate change, not just those that the national media want to promote.

Obama climate rule is ‘breathtaking expansion’ of power, opponents say


waving flagBy Timothy Cama02/22/16

The dozens of states and energy companies suing to stop the Obama administration’s climate change rule for power plants are calling it a “breathtaking expansion” of the federal government’s power. The litigants, led by West Virginia and a coalition of electric utility, lobbed their opening volley in federal court Friday night with their initial brief on the merits of their case.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rule, dubbed the Clean Power Plan, is already on hold, thanks to a surprise Supreme Court order earlier this month.

But the opponents of the regulation must still make their case on the merits, starting in the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where the Friday brief was filed.

Their arguments in the 192-page initial brief focus heavily on their position that the EPA has stepped outside the bounds of its authority under the Clean Air Act to limit pollution.

“EPA’s audacious assertion of authority in this Rule is more far-reaching than any previous effort by the agency,” the litigants wrote.

“If upheld, the rule would lead to a breathtaking expansion of the agency’s authority. The rule’s restructuring of nearly every state’s electric grid would exceed even the authority that Congress gave to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the federal agency responsible for electricity regulation,” they said.

“EPA’s newly-discovered authority threatens to enable the agency to mandate that any existing source’s owners in any industry reduce their source’s production, shutter the existing source entirely, and even subsidize their non-regulated competitors.”EPA Monster

The regulation, made final last year, is the main pillar of President Obama’s climate change agenda. It seeks a 32 percent cut in the power sector’s carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, with each state assigned a specific goal.

The court has asked the Obama administration to respond to the opponents’ allegations by March 28 in its own brief.

After numerous other briefs by various parties, a three-judge panel of the appeals court will hear oral arguments in the case June 2. The judges can decide the case at any time after that, at which point one side or the other will likely appeal to the Supreme Court.

No Need to Fret over Global Warming – We Will Just Evolve

“We’ve got to accelerate the transition away from dirty energy. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future especially in communities that rely on fossil fuels. That’s why I’m going to push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers and our planet.” That’s what the president exclaimed in his dog and pony show Tuesday night.dangerously delisional

But really, is it already too late for that? Americans have been told that global warming will surely cause worldwide drought. At the same time it will cause massive coastal flooding due to melting of all the ice over the entire globe. Even the ice in your freezer will melt.

I suppose then, for those living along the coast it will get really wet and those inland, assuming there is any inland, there will be barren conditions, not to mention packing more and more people into an ever-shrinking land mass– so I guess its pick your poison. This is what the so-called global warming experts tell us.

Super Chicken

Now, for those poor saps living inland it will be difficult to plant and grow crops. Subsistence will be very limited as crops wither away. And with dwindling land mass, overcrowding or overpopulation will be the unfortunate result. Add to the dwindling land mass the fact that humans seem to be getting larger and taller with each passing generation. What ever are we to do? Just accept extinction?

Worry not, for the Darwinians are here to save us with one of the latest evolutionary theories on just how we solve the coming overpopulation crisis.

Dutch artist, Arne Hendriks claims the planet’s growing population will become a real problem. This pace he says, like do other overpopulationists, is unsustainable. He tells us that, “For much of the history of humankind, bigger has been better. As our ancestors got taller, they became faster and stronger, giving them the ability to better hunt food and avoid predators. But in a world where we no longer need to fight for our meals, our height offers no real advantage – being tall is no longer a desired result in an age of increasing scarcity.” He points to a study in Nature which “claims human actions are now changing the planet producing a new geological epoch, in which humans are causing widespread damage to the planet.”definetly

And his answer to solving this new geological epoch is, “if we could shrink our size down to just 50cm, we would need only two to five per cent of the resources required by an average-sized human.” 50cm is about 20 inches, or, as Hendriks puts it, about the size of a chicken.REALLY

Of course we can no longer leave something so pressing to natural evolution. No, we’ll have to tweak it by cooking up “some type of elixir that will slow growth. Another way to do this would be to tweak our DNA.”

Okay, so the inland problem is solved. We’ll all be the size of chickens. Hopefully we won’t also taste like chicken or that may Aquamancause us problems dealing with our pets.

What about the coastal flooding problem? Does anyone know how long chicken people may float? There’s no need to find out because “Global warming could cause humans to develop webbed feet, cat’s eyes and gills.”

Dr Matthew Skinner, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Kent in merry old England is definitely a scientist and definitely not a kook. He expects humans “would develop webbed hands [and feet] and eyes like those of cats to help us see in the poor lighting conditions underwater and an extra translucent eyelid to protect the eyes from water. We would also retain a layer of baby fat into adulthood as an insulator for spending long periods submerged. Regular foraging in shallow waters could lead us to develop ‘gills’ to help us breathe, extracting oxygen from the water and delivering it to the bloodstream.”What did you say 06.jpg

So there you have it. All is not lost. Now it’s just a matter of deciding which species you prefer – Chicken-man or Aqua-man. But choose wisely. I’m guessing that once you transform into a tiny Chicken-man, there’s no going back.

And don’t even get me started on inter-species hook-ups. What would an Aqua-Chicken look like? This is what passes for real science. These people are nuts!

Black Lives Matters’ Climate Change Agenda Reveals National Ambitions


waving flagby Lee Stranahan13 Dec 2015

Casual observers sometimes treat the Black Lives Matter movement as just another series of semi-random, anti-cop protests that happen in cities from time to time. In reality, the movement is the latest and most successful vehicle for a covert, wide-ranging, far-left, socialist agenda steered by revolutionary communists.

Yes, the Black Lives Matter movement is focused on racist police brutality and ending what they term as “mass incarceration.” This has been their trigger issue; the thing that gets people into the streets and into the movement.

The movement, however, is about The Movement—the collection of issues and affiliated groups that are the far left’s agenda. As part of The Movement, Black Lives Matter deals with issues that may seem far afield from race and police brutality. For example, immigration “reform” — so two of the founders of Black Lives Matter are top-ranking officials with pro-illegal immigration groups.

The Movement is also anti-Israel, and as Breitbart News has reported, Black Lives Matter has alliances with a pro-Palestinian terrorist.Leftist monster race

In fact, the Movement—and by extension, the Black Lives Matter group —has political positions on every single issue facing America, from taxes to social issues like abortion to foreign policy. Yes, including “climate change.”

Don’t take my word for it, though—here’s how Black Lives Matter ties into what the left calls “environmental justice.”

Another activist on the Mall, Dominque Hazzard, a member of the Black Youth Project 100, said, “The Black Lives Matter and the Climate and Justice movements are totally connected because, around the world, climate change is disproportionately impacting people of color and the working class.’

“The movement is about ending state sanctioned violence against black people,” Hazzard said.Keys taken

Want more? Here’s influential leftist author and columnist Naomi Klein, writing a year ago in The Nation:

What does #BlackLivesMatter, and the unshakable moral principle that it represents, have to do with climate change? Everything. Because we can be quite sure that if wealthy white Americans had been the ones left without food and water for days in a giant sports stadium after Hurricane Katrina, even George W. Bush would have gotten serious about climate change.definetly

Don’t worry if that formula of “Climate Change = Racism” doesn’t make sense to you. It just means you aren’t a leftist. Klein continues, tying in everything to the leftist worldview:

In the face of systemic state violence, courageous demonstrators shouting “I Can’t Breathe” and “Black Lives Matter” are asserting a positive, core principle about the value of every single human being, starting with the lives that are currently most discounted. Supporting the urgent call for justice and a transformation of the criminal justice system is of paramount importance and should not be watered down by piling every issue under the sun on top of it.

At the same time, the clarion call that Black Lives Matter deserves to transform how we approach a great many crises in our societies, from school systems that systematically fail African-American kids, to a healthcare system that too often discards black lives. It must also jolt us out of our climate inaction.Delusional Mental Illness Gibberish

Don’t dismiss Black Lives Matter as merely an anti-cop group. The 2016 election is less than a year away and with every protest, demonstration, and student uprising, they are recruiting and training activists and new voters to back far-left Democrats in November.

Earlier this month in Chicago, at a prayer vigil for Laquan McDonald, the BLM activists ended the event by handing out voter registration cards.
