“Global warming” didn’t work, “Climate Change” was a bust; how about “Extreme Weather”?

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 9.16.36 AMLeaked memo exposes Democrat leadership’s talking points for their underlings: It’s all about extreme weather.

As has been pointed out here many times before, Democrats wail about hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes and nor’easters when they’re happening, and blame it on global warming.

When those natural phenomena disappear, however, and that’s pointed out, they (see Bill Weir’s tweet, top, e.g.) go absolutely stark raving nuts, howling that “weather is not climate!” No shit, numb nuts .

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) is sending a memo Friday to her Democratic colleagues urging them to start talking about how climate change will hurt the federal budget and how to do so.

The memo, obtained by The Washington Post, details how global warming impacts will affect four key sectors of the federal budget: disaster relief; transportation and infrastructure; national security and agriculture. It comes three days after the Budget Committee held a hearing on the subject, and the White House published an economic analysis saying that delaying carbon emissions cuts will cost the U.S. billions.

  1. it’s cool to exclude:

    oh yeah, NdeGT’s bullshit representation of weather vs ‘climate change’

    Weir has more bounce in his million different network jobs than than in a Michelle Jenneke’s warmup video.

    Weir’s journalistic talent is TMZ-worthy, where he can report on the soon to happen Beyoncé and Jay-Z split. But I gotta say, I’m going to reuse his brilliant quote – it’s better than Jane you ignorant slut!

  3. That’s why Eisenhower warned in his farewell military-Industrial Complex” speech about government “research”. Ike said government research will always come out the way government wants it too and should not be trusted.

    Hence WH economic analysis and warming studies that have little basis in fact or science. Dem low info voters eat it up.

    It wasn’t that long ago the WH released bogus research that said Obamacare would save money. Now their side says they never promised savings or lower insurance costs.

    The reality that Liberals are constantly harping on this and contorting themselves to make their case in the face of weak evidence is proof that it is not a significant issue to address with economic strangling regulations. If they were worried about the future, they would address the slow motion disaster of MedicRe/Medicaid and Social Security now not when it goes off the cliff. Projections on those programs are more realistic than “climate change science” and fixing them today will be less onerous than waiting until we go full Thelma and Louise. But that is too hard to do so the response is “we have time to fix those things down the road”. But “climate change” must be address post haste to avoid apocalypse.

    C-span video:
    Richard Gage talked about his group, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which claimed that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosive demolition on September 11, 2001. The group was founded in 2006 and said its mission was to “expose the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events of September 11, 2001 in a way that inspires the people to overcome denial and understand the truth.”

  7. Anyone paying attention is aware that climate has always changed. The uptrend accompanying the Industrial Revolution began at the depths of the Little Ice Age (approximately 1700) and progressed with 32 year up trends and less steep down trends through the 20th century. It became known as Global Warming (GW) during the comparatively steep rise in the last quarter of the 20th century.

    GW ended before 2001. Measured average global temperature trend since 2001 has been flat (average of the 5 reporting agencies) and is 0.3 K less than ‘consensus’ predictions. That 0.3 K that didn’t happen is 40% of the total rise in the 20th century. Meanwhile, since 2001, the CO2 level has increased by 30% of the total increase 1800-2001.

    Two natural drivers of climate change have been identified that explain measured average global temperatures since before 1900 with R2 >0.9 (95% correlation) and provide credible estimates back to the low temperatures of the Little Ice Age (1610). CO2 change is not one of them.

    The method, equation, data sources, history (hind cast to 1610) and predictions (through 2037) are provided at http://agwunveiled.blogspot.com and references.

    Stretch your memory back just a few years earlier, Chris: The first great climate fraud was the “man caused coming ice age” circa 1974. Yuppers! That was all about atmospheric dust caused by industry and transportation and farming – and our mere existence on the planet was gonna freeze our butts off.

    Oddly enough, the solutions were the same. Imagine that? What a coinkidink!

    BTW: One little known hysterical fact was that Rachel Carson was embarrassed by her squeaking mattress. That’s why she had to invent the, um, never mind.

    • The “World Bank” is calling for a global (meaning US) energy (carbon tax). Claims “studies” show it would help mitigate damage and actually benefit the economy.

      Sure. It will benefit them and hurt US.
