Scientists Report Card Shows “Significant Arctic Stress” from Global Warming

Record loss of sea ice and thinning of ice throughout the Arctic this summer are only two brush strokes in the mosaic of scientific data that depict the Arctic as a “system under significant stress from warming atmosphere,” says the chief editor of the State of the Arctic report card...

A British judge has ruled Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" has AT LEAST 9 MAJOR ERRORS (here are four):

- Mt. Kilimanjaro's vanishing snow
is due to global warming

- Sea levels will rise as much as
20ft. in the near future

- Climiate change played a role in
Hurricane Katrina
- Polar bears have drowned while
searching for ice

The judge ruled that Gore's film can be shown to British students only if they also receive information to balance the "one-sided" view.

GW is a bunch of crap proffered by greedy money grubbing despots who wish to keep the common man suppressed and under their thumb by making their goods more expensive and enriching their own pockets by selling scam and pseudo science.

The Nobel Prize is now nothing but a politically motivated statement by left wing progressive globalists. Algore is befitting the award by joining the ranks of Yasser Arafat and Jummuh Carter...scumbags all.

CO2 makes up less than 3/10,000ths of the Earths atmosphere. Over 90+% of the CO2 produced is by evaporation of the oceans. Anybody that thinks mankind is causing an increase in CO2 is goofy.

So to follow your logic and principles, it's ok to rip off the American taxpayer with is phony "war on terror" but it's NOT ok to profit from cleaning up the environment for posterity?

Great logic guys, or lack there of.

It's hard for us not to resort to your level and call you "stupid fucking idiots" but we'll try.

There's a lack of logic present here alright...

"For those who saw Al Gore’s “documentary”, it was very convincing of its hypothesis that global warming is a man-made phenomenon that has the potential to kill us all and end humanity. After all, the film was filled with graphs and charts, so it must be true. Let’s just get something straight here, Al Gore is not a climatologist, meteorologist, astronomer, or scientist of any kind; he is a politician. And as we all know, politicians always tell the truth."

BOW....WOW!

Shoes4Industry said...

Bottom line is Al Gore isn't responsible for hundreds of thousand of innocent deaths, G W Bush is.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Algore will be responsible for MILLIONS of deaths worldwide if his pseudo BS science carbon credit scam isn't stopped. Their systematic bilking of Billions of dollars out of this economy and taxing poorer nation for higher technology will put the world in a Re/Depression the likes of which has never been seen.

The only "stupid fucking idiots" are the Goreons and their "Great Leader".

Gee, I remember a time on this site when Shoes said "name calling will not be tolerated here." But as in true liberal fashion, they can do but don't you.

We have to call 'em as we see 'em.

It's racism and hate speech that's out of bounds, not the truth.

Man-made Global Warming is a scam promoted by the Global Elite to make us think there's no way out of it. (Watch the Great Global Warming Swindle on google video.) The real immediate problem is chemtrails being used for weather modification. All the major hurricanes, including Katrina and Rita, were manufactured.

There's a hell of alot more than racism & hate speech that is out of bounds but I can see you have your blinders on. Speaking of racism I sure do to read alot of white supremency here. Racism goes both ways.

"Phony" war on terror. Just who are you anyway? One of those radical ragheads trying to make people believe that our government is lying and that you don't mean business. Is the war on terror only "phony" in the US or is it "phony" all over the world. Because (in case you haven't seen or heard) TERRORISTS strike all over the world not just here. Are all of the foreign governments bull-shitting their people, too???

Gore claims that sea level rise could drown the Pacific islands, Florida, major cities the world over, and the 9/11 Memorial in New York City.

Sea level has been rising at a rate of 1.8 mm per year for the past 8,000 years. The IPCC notes that “No significant acceleration in the rate of sea level rise during the 20th century has been detected.” Unless there is another Little Ice Age, they will continue rising at roughly this rate for centuries to come. As to open water in the Arctic, it happens every year in late summer—following weeks in the 40s and 50s.

ROTFLMAO!!

Shoes4Industry said...

You to need to stop getting all your information and ideas from Talk Radio.

Try NPR, maybe you'll learn someting useful.

Lee said...

Speaking of talk radio, I was just listening to Rush (go ahead & gag, who gives a shit.)

A woman from San Diego called to explain the difference between a red area and a blue one. The Californians are taking care of one another NOT waiting for the government to do it FOR them, as they did in the blue area (NO). Self-reliant people who do not depend on the government.

Another man called from the stadium. He reporterd NO riots, NO fights, NO crime, NO rapes, NO unrest & 2 reports of looting. They are taking care of one another. 800 national guard were taken off border but really weren't needed.

And there's Katie Couric. When the situation in the Superdome was a disaster it was Bush's fault. But the scene at the San Diego stadium is stable - even like a "tailgate" party. But guess who she gives the "credit"to? The stadium itself! She actually said the STADIUM was doing a great job.

And don't talk about compassion. The Dems. have no compassion for the people in these recent disasters. They only use them to politicalize the issue.

What are you in Jr High?

California can not be compared to NO.

Katrina was a man=made disaster and the federal government's response was and continues to be shameful if not criminal.

"Katrina was a man made disaster and the federal government's response was and continues to be shameful if not criminal."

What a load of bullshit. GMAFB.

Lee said...

Yes! Of course. Katrina was a man made disaster by Bush because he hates blacks. YAWN!!!

Lee said...

Speaking of Katrina:

There's no doubt that state and local officials were partly to blame for the slow & inefficient response to Katrina. And people on both sides of the hurricane vs. wildfire debate agreee that the storm-which put nearly an entire city under water, flooded evacuation routes & knocked out vital communications links-was a disaster of far greater magnitude.

Rep. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "It makes a significant difference when you have somebody in the Statehouse willing to take the lead."

Rich Lowry (Natl. Online Reivew) "The California wildfires will produce no Blancos." "California's government isn't as addled with corruption and incompetence as Louisiana's, and THAT has made the difference."

"I'll go to my grave insisting that if Katrina had hit Florida instead of Louisiana, with that particular mayor and that particular governor, the outcome would have been different," said Pete Wehner, former Bush White House domestic policy adivser.

"There have been unfair swipes taken at Pres. Bush on this issue for two years, and remember that he is the one who stepped forward and took personal responsibility. But that does not let state and local responders off the hook for being responsible for their part"

Of course, the excuse from Sally Forman, former press secretary of Mayor Nagin was, "We had no communication capability, we could not drive on our roads, we had 80% of our city under water, we had not power." ( WELL, if the locals couldn't do their job because of all these obstructions how were the feds. supposed to do it?)

Bush administration officials have long believed that if Ms. Blance had immediately LET the federal government assume control of the military response in Louisiana, the outcome would have been different.

With the election last week of GOP Rep. Bobby Jindal to succeed Ms. Blance,Bush allies argue that Louisianans have rendered their judgment.

Article by Sheryl Gay Stolberg, The NY Times.

Shoes4Industry said...

BOSTON--Today's NYT runs a news analysis about the Bush Administration's not-so-discreet efforts to make the nation forget "Brownie, you're doin a heckuva job" and all the other damning details--the staff had to make him watch a DVD of the coverage--that made "Katrina" a synonym for government fecklessness.

The President made a statement widely believed to be aimed at pushing blame on Louisiana's lame-duck Governor Blanco, and the Times analysis quotes Louisianans pushing back on that front. And writer Sheryl Gay Stolberg does an admirable job comparing the magnitudes of the two disasters, by which measures the New Orleans event dwarfed that in SoCal.

But Stolberg, like so many other national journalists, fails to make the crucial point: the New Orleans event is a stain on the Feds not just because of the response, but the event itself was caused by federal mal- and mis-feasance, i.e., the four-decade-long Corps of Engineers "hurricane protection project" wracked with design and construction flaws that proved catastrophic.

Unless one of the SoCal arsonists is proved to be a DHS employee, the federal involvement in the causation of Louisiana's woes is the primary distinction between the two disasters.

Pieces from Op-ed columnist John Tierney (NY Times) written shortly after Katrina.

Mr. Tierney interviewed a Mr. Jundkins who is the official in charge of evacuating in Newport News,VA. Even though Newport News is not below sea level they were better prepared that NO. They had plans to use school buses to evacuate & kept registries of people who needed special help.
If rescurers had to go door to door and people refused to leave, they were told to put their SS#'s on some body part with magic markers so they could late be identified.

The libs. bewailing the insensitivy & racism of Republicans in Washington sound like a bad re-run of the 1960's when urban riots were blamed on everyone but the rioters. The NO and Louisiana democratic leaders didn't even fulfill their basic duties.

In Virginia (large black population & plenty of Republican politicans), Mr. Jundkins & his colleagues assumed it was THEIR respnsibility to evacuate people, maintain order & stockpile supplies for at least 72hrs UNTIL the feds. arrived. In NO, the mayor seemed to assume all that was beyound his control, just like mayor of the 1960's who let riots occur.

They said their cities couldn't survive without the help from Washington, which proceeded to shower inner cities with money & programs that did more damage than the riots. Cities didn't recover until some mayor, especially Rudy Guiliani tried SELF-RELIANCE.

The feds who had been laboring a one-size fits all strategy were unprepared for the peculiaries of NO, like the high number of people without cars but the LOCAL govt. WHO KNEW about this problem DID NOTHING about it-then they were furious when Pres. Buwh didn't solve it FOR THEM.

Shoes4Industry said...

Sorry Lee, the federal government CAUSED the disaster by building faulty levees in the first place.

Don't blame the victims, (as much as you can't help it.)

Lee said...

Sorry (and you are)Shoes, but the corrpution of the government in NO took care of the money that was supposed to fix the leeves.

I never blamed the victims. But you continue to only blame the feds. but let the local & state goverments look innocent.

You are just one of those sad souls who always looks to blame someone else.

If the mayor & Gov. would have had a decent evacuation plan to execute (and actually USED it) and THEN called the feds. in SOONER most of this mess would have not happened. EXCUSES,EXCUSES,EXCUSES!

shoes4industry said...

It sure sounds like you are blaming the victims.

Lee said...

No, I am NOT blaming the victims. Just putting the initial blame where it belongs: local & state government. You only seem to blame the feds.

Actually though, when it comes to Mother Nature there are some things that man just cannot control. Some circumstances are just out of our hands and defies all logic. Nature is the one thing man cannot control and some just can't seem to accept that.

shoes4industry said...

If you look into it, it was the FEDERAL Government Army Corps of Engineer's failure to properly design and maintain the levees that lead to the disaster.

NOT THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT!
