CBS: War is peace

For those few remaining global warmists who wonder why the rest of us just don’t get it, CBS provides the answer: when any weather phenomenon whatsoever is claimed to be caused by global warming, even the least skeptical of rational minds is forced to conclude that a panicked desperation has set in among those whose living and government grants depend on the disproved theory.

So today CBS tells us, again, that our recent snowstorms are the direct result of global warming. The warmest liars can’t even get and keep their stories straight, yet we’re somehow supposed to believe that they’re real scientists offering objective facts? A spoon bender as “expert”? Are you friggin’ kidding me??!!

[Charlie Rose ] Guest Michio Kaku, a physics professor from New York City College–not a climatologist, but a physicist–[ and not just any physicist but a Paranormal “expert who beeves in time travel, photographing dreams and bending spoons with will power] claimed that the “wacky weather” could get “even wackier” and its all because of global warming. “What we’re seeing is that the jet stream and the polar vortex are becoming unstable. Instability of historic proportions. We think it’s because of the gradual heating up of the North Pole. The North Pole is melting,” professor Kaku said.

“That excess heat generated by all this warm water is destabilizing this gigantic bucket of cold air… So that’s the irony, that heating could cause gigantic storms of historic proportions,” the prof explained.

This was all because of global warming, Rose insisted.

Kaku went on to say that the weather “instabilities” we are seeing are because of the “erratic nature of the jet stream” and the “polar vortex.”

Kaku also said that it is too late to change any of this: 

Well, the bad news is that the north polar region continues to rise in temperature, it seems to be irreversible at a certain point, so we may have to get used to a new normal. That is, a north polar region that is melting, causing more instability in this bucket, causing more things to spill out, which means more extremes. Some winters could be very mild, other winters could be horrendous.

According to The Weather Channel, the Polar Vortex is not the sort of weather system that directly affects the surface. In fact, the polar vortex is an upper atmosphere system, not one that impacts directly on the surface of the earth.

CBS Host Norah O’Donnell also took the occasion of the discussion to claim that 2014 will be the hottest summer ever.

But I absolutely agree with the professor that it’s too friggin’ late to do anything about this, just as Al Gore and Prince Charles and NASA Muppet Master Jim Hansen have repeatedly claimed (and the had to extend deadlines when the world failed to end). Let’s relax, calm down, stopping paying for useless gestures to put off what can’t be put off and have some fun on the beach. Who’s got the sun tan oil?

UPDATE: Two broadcasters in one! Chris R sends along this article detailing CBS’s own reporter debunking the network’s claim that warm weather in Sochi is due to global warming. Sochi enjoys a “sub-tropical” climate, and worries about warm weather were expressed by organizers long before the television cameras and nut bus showed up.

    Kaku is kookoo for kokoa puffs. Please read the great piece done by real scientists at Watts Up With That. They know Kaku is always wrong. Read the 66 comments as well, then add WUWT to your blogroll.

    Having a half decent winter for a change is “instability of historic proportions”?

    Rush is right, these people are too stupid to have a frame of reference prior to their own miserable puny lifespans.

    • Huh, did Rush say that? That’s been one of my complaints since this whole silly thing started. I took quite a few geology classes in college and got a fairly good sense of geologic time. 100 years isn’t even a data point.

        This crowd makes it ALL up! Doesn’t matter the topic – they just get in front of the camera, lie their asses off …. and an astoundingly large percentage of our country still eats it up like hogs in a pen.

        If the phrase “global warming” ain’t working anymore, then they just invent a new “1984” Orwell phrase to sway the masses.

        The dummies on our side keep on fighting back with logic and hard data, when it’s Kool-Aid that being delivered by the other side. And lapped up and enjoyed by not only low-information voters, but a number of people who have some brain cells but turn them off when it comes to this president and what his party has been selling for some time.

        If it just affected them, then I’d laugh my head off and go about my business. But – they are screwing up one of the greatest nations ever and harming so many of our people – including ME! Arrrrgh!

    Of course I can see shifting weather patterns around the globe. There have been many changes in the earth’s surface temperature. Greenland didn’t get its name from having always been covered with ice (map of Piri Reis, Google it), receding glaciers around the world show forests beneath them, Roman literature talks about vineyards in England, etc.
    Where “They” lose me is by claiming it’s me who’s causing it.They want to tell me how to live, what car to drive, what light bulbs to use (!) and kill the economy with their insane assertions.
    All based on the Carbon Master’s famous hockey stick curve “demonstrating scientifically” that, based on ice core readings, the rise in earth temperature is linked to CO2 levels. First concept in science: “Correlation doesn’t prove Causation”. Then again ….
    Real ice core scientists have actually shown that the rise in temperature and rise in CO2 levels in core samples actually occurred in the opposite sequence than claimed. Temperature went up first, then came the rise of CO2 levels.
    Wrap it all up with the hypocritical concept of carbon credits and it’s enough to drive one over the edge.
