Teresa Audesirk: Global warming

Advertisement

— When record snows blanketed Washington, D.C., in February, climate change deniers gleefully used this as evidence to debunk global warming. Now, as the same region endures a record-breaking heat wave, these skeptics are conspicuously silent. The fact is, no weather event can prove or disprove that global warming is occurring. When thinking about climate change, it is crucial not to confuse climate with weather, which changes on a daily basis. Climate and weather are linked, however, as the climate of a region is determined by its average weather over long periods of time. Satellite measurements over the world’s oceans, combined with data from more than 6,000 land-based sites throughout the world, tell us that decade by decade, Earth is inexorably warming.

Experts from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration now have concluded that the 2009 mid-Atlantic snowstorms resulted from natural factors independent of global warming­. However, a trend predicted by climatologists — and supported by weather data throughout recent decades — is that as the world warms, the frequency of extreme weather events such as heat waves, droughts, rains of a magnitude to cause flooding, and high-intensity hurricanes will increase. Weather-wise, global warming assures that we will live in interesting times.

The bigger question is where were you? Here is some evidence that we are in a ruse by the elites in a Cap and Tax spread the wealth scam that is aimed at ending the USA, as is stated by those involved.

"The second and most shocking revelation of the leaked documents is how they show the scientists trying to manipulate data through their tortuous computer programmes, always to point in only the one desired direction – to lower past temperatures and to "adjust" recent temperatures upwards, in order to convey the impression of an accelerated warming." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/6679082/Climate-change-this-is-the-worst-scientific-scandal-of-our-generation.html

Are we under the thumb of the Apollo Alliance? Watch the 56 minute video and listen to them describe what they were looking for in the Candidates for POTUS and the agenda they uphold and how it is now playing out.

Many years ago a brilliant stock operator was asked, at a cocktail party, if he knew what the market would do. He replied, "yes... I know exactly what the market will do!"

The room fell silent as he gave his answer. "It will continue to fluctuate."

So too will Earth's climate.

The Earth's climate fluctuated before man was. It fluctuated when man's prescence was inconsiquential. It fluctuates now and it will do likewise when man is long gone.

Since not one global warming alarmist has EVER been able to tell me what the EXACT perfect temperature of Earth is I must conclude that a warming planet has at least a 50% chance of being more benificial that damaging.

Since every solution to global warming involves me trusting a government which has proven to be utterly incompetent, dishonest, overbearing and wasteful I chose to take my chances with the climate.

I will not buy this BS. I will not react to it. I will not participate in some delusional excercise in preventing the Earth from doing what it has done for millions of years.

Mother Earth seems to know.
