18 Insane Predictions From The Very First Earth Day In 1970

Hat/Tip to Mark J. Perry at the American Enterprise Institute. The sky is falling!!! That is probably the only thing that the Climate Catastrophe Freaks didn’t say back on the first Earth Day ever. And co-incidentally here is a list of 18 of the craziest predictions that were made on that inaugural Earth Day, in 1970. Well, it’s now the 45th anniversary of  Earth Day, and a good time to ask the question again that Bailey asked 15 years ago: How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970? The answer: “The prophets of doom […]

The Environmental Insane Asylum

Guest Post By Alan Caruba Earth Day was declared in 1970 and for the past 45 years we have all been living in the Environmental Insane Asylum, being told over and over again to believe things that are the equivalent of Green hallucinations. Now the entire month of April has been declared Earth Month, but in truth not a day goes by when we are not assailed with the bold-faced lies that comprise environmentalism. Around the globe, the worst part of this is that we are being victimized by people we are told to respect from the President of the […]

Ghosts of “Earth Day” Past

  On this, Earth Day 2015, lets take a look back at some quotes from the very first Earth Day, in 1970.  After you’ve read even a few of these quotes, please ask yourself how we can believe anything that these same people, who now call for man-caused global warming, are saying. “We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”• Kenneth Watt, ecologist “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”• […]

Earth Day Concert On The National Mall: Eco-Freaks Trash The Place

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well the Greenies were at it again, this time in our nation’s capitol. They attended a concert, and held a rally, and then all those Greenies went home, but were thoughtful enough to leave their trash behind. Maybe it was to remind us on the Right, just how much we hate taking care of Mother Earth. Too bad it didn’t work, Greenies. See, us folks on the Right don’t leave our rally sites like this…   scenes from the Earth Day concert on the Mall — Christine Rousselle (@crousselle) April 18, 2015 …or like this… […]

Natural Climate Cycles – Part 2: Millennial Oscillations

This shall be part two of a four part series, discussing and detailing natural climate cycles and how these cycles combine and/or interact to contribute to and/or drive the weather that we observe, over time.  Once the entire series has been completed, it will be compiled into a book with some additional details, and graphics added. It should be noted, that much of the data used when discussing climate over this length of time or longer, is scientifically reconstructed.  Actual observations can only take us back a few hundred years.  Beyond that, methods such as: ice cores; ocean, lake, and […]

Natural Climate Cycles – Part 1: Short Term Oscillations

  This shall be part one of a four part series, detailing natural climate cycles and how these cycles combine and/or relate, to create the overall climate, and daily weather that we observe.  Once the entire series has been completed, it will be combined into a book with some additional details and graphics added. Before I begin, please understand the difference between weather and climate.  To get one single climate data point, requires the averaging together of 30 years of weather.  Therefor a century of weather, would contain only three climate data points and some change.  Keep this in mind […]

White House Memo: Don’t Mention Temperature When Discussing Global Warming

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. The temperatures aren’t rising? Then we’ll switch to calling it “Climate Change” instead of “Global Warming.” The temperatures STILL aren’t rising? Er, um, don’t mention temperature when talking about Global Warming. Yes, the Gore-distas really are that pathetic… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First rule about global warming: don’t talk global warming. The White House quietly released a draft guidance telling federal agencies to consider the impact more carbon dioxide emissions will have on the environment, but only in terms of how much more carbon dioxide will be emitted. When conducting environmental impact analyses on rules and projects, […]

Freighter On Lake Erie Overcome With Global Warming: The Photos Al Gore Doesn’t Want You To See

  Hat/Tip to BFH at That dastardly Global Climate Warming Change is at it again. This time Global Warming is trapping ships in the Great Lakes. Cleveland –The U.S. Coast Guard and its Canadian counterpart are working to free a 647-foot freighter that got stuck in the almost completely frozen Lake Erie Wednesday near Conneaut Harbor.   The Bristol Bay, a 140-foot American ice breaker based in Detroit, headed back to Cleveland early Saturday after days of trying to free the freighter from 8 to 10 feet of ice. A larger Canadian ice cutter named The Griffon was about seven miles […]

How Do You Fix A Solar Energy Fiasco $88 Million In The Hole? Throw More Money At It!

Why waste a mere $88 million, when you can waste millions more? Yup. That tri-county solar energy debacle I wrote about last week is getting a taxpayer bailout. Three counties have a solution to salvage an $88-million-dollar solar project that went bust: borrow more millions to pump into the project and hope it will eventually turn a profit and ease the pain to taxpayers, officials said. Some officials view the solution as damage control. Others are calling it a repeat of a mistake, one they will fight to avoid. Freeholders in Sussex, Morris and Somerset counties will vote on settlement […]

United States In The Iron Grip Of Global Climate Warming Change!!!

Hat/Tip to Anthony Watts at Watts Up With That? In some places the global warming is so deep that they’re piling it up and making snow forts!!! From NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center: NASA snaps picture of Eastern US in a record-breaking ‘freezer’ NASA’s Terra satellite captured an image of the snow-covered eastern U.S. that looks like the states have been sitting in a freezer. In addition to the snow cover, Arctic and Siberian air masses have settled in over the Eastern U.S. triggering many record low temperatures in many states. On Feb. 19 at 16:40 UTC (11:40 a.m. EST), the […]

Obama Administration Approached Disney To Use Frozen Characters In Global Warming Propaganda

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Editor’s Note: I’m to the point with the Obama Administration that virtually NOTHING they do surprises me anymore. Admiral Robert Papp, the U.S. special envoy to the Arctic, revealed at a conference in Norway this week he talked to Disney about using the characters from Frozen to teach kids about the Arctic climate and issues related to climate change. Papp recalled seeing hundreds of children watching Frozen and how he was given the suggestion of how the government “might employ Disney to come up with some public service announcements… to tell the story of the Arctic” to […]

Sen. Jim Inhofe Outfoxes Dems on Climate Change in Keystone Vote

Hat/Tip to Melissa Clyne at Newsmax. For those of us who are political junkies, or even those of us who are simply trying to keep the newly minted Republican-controlled Congress’ feet to the fire, we’ve all noticed the posts making the rounds on Facebook, and the other social media sites stating that we’ve been sold out. Headlines like, “GOP Senate votes in favor of man-made Global Warming!” have been getting lots of “likes” and “shares” along with comments that really can’t be reprinted here. But wait, oh faithful minions of the Tea Party movement, not so fast there! In what The […]

Out Of Top 23 Items Americans Want DC To Focus On, Global Warming Barely Makes The List

Hat/Tip to soopermexican at The Right Scoop. Al Gore and all his “Goredistas” continually sound the alarm that humans are killing the planet! The only problem with that, is that hardly anyone believes them. One of the funnier things to see is Obama and Democrats in the liberal media sound the alarm on Global Warming, when most Americans really could care less. A recent Pew poll report shows just how little they care about the issue: The center asked a nationally representative pool of Americans which policy issues they believe should be a top priority for the Obama administration and newly […]

New Obama Administration Nutrition Guidelines: “Become A Vegan For Gaia”

  In 2015, Every time you eat a hamburger, a climate scientist cries. Why? Because, according to the Obama Administration, you need to go vegan, or the planet will die. A panel that advises the Agriculture Department appears set to recommend that you be told not only what foods are better for your own health, but also for the environment. That means that when the latest version of the government’s dietary guidelines comes out, it may push even harder than it has in recent years for people to choose more fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and other plant-based foods — […]

Bad News For Al Gore: 28 In Arizona, Temps In The ’30s In Florida…Record Cold Spell All Across The U.S.

Hat/Tip to Jon Erdman at The only thing that is more mortally wounded than that bird on your Thanksgiving table is Al Gore’s Global Climate Warming Change fear factory. Record cold temperatures are being recorded all across the country. Waves of cold Arctic air are finding their way down into the “lower 48” and wreaking havoc along the way. Record-Breaking November Arctic Cold   Long Lasting Cold Above is a European computer model of the Arctic blasts that are reaching their way deep into the Continental United States. With blocking high pressure aloft over eastern Alaska and northwest Canada, […]

Manhattan Infidel Investigates Joe Biden’s Expanding Forehead: Is Global Warming, I Mean Climate Change, Responsible? Also, Where Are My Pants?

Recently the political blogging community, of which I am a respected tolerated get the f*ck out of my bathroom  member has been talking about Vice President Joe Biden. Specifically his expanding forehead. It appears that Biden’s forehead has increased in size as seen from this recent picture. But why?  What could cause the Vice President’s forehead to expand so dramatically? Using available technology I have narrowed down the cause to three possibilities: Global warming, er, I mean climate change Brain steroids An unknown alien technology and/or Biden is a Decepticon. Let’s examine the first and most likely reason: Global Warming, […]

Evidence: Get Used to Colder Weather – Sorry, Al!!

  It is becoming increasingly likely that we can expect at least the next few decades to be considerably colder than the last few decades have been. With the recent cold snaps striking the central and eastern US, following the extreme winter we had a year ago, many find themselves asking “what happened to ‘global warming’?”.  Others are asking if this cold weather is here to stay, or just temporary.  This is the place to find answers, and the UN-IPCC certainly is not.  Why? Because as I spell out in this article, the UN-IPCC in its charter, defines climate change […]

Obama Flushes $3 billion of Taxpayer Dollars Into A Third World Climate Change Slush Fund

  Climate change, it’s not about saving the planet. It’s about wealth transfer. Barack Obama will announce a three billion dollar taxpayer funded US contribution to the world climate change fund. The pledge is directed to the Green Climate Fund, a financial institution created last year by the United Nations with headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. It comes ahead of a Nov. 20 climate meeting in Berlin, at which countries have been asked to make formal commitments to the fund. In particular, the world’s least developed economies insist that the world’s richest economies — which are also the largest greenhouse […]
