You have to kill the the cause of poor policy before you can establish viable ones and with the EPA at the helm driven by activist groups, it isn't going to happen.

my number one criteria for who I vote for in the next election is the guy who will be the hardest on the EPA.


I want the next president to demand resignation letters from every single employee, and a resume attached with a 2500 word essay on why they oppose regulation of CO2.

Let me go further and say that the 2500 word essay will carry the force of testamoney under oath. Therefore if they are deemed to be lying, it will be a felony.


And if they change their minds in the future it will be grounds for immediate termination for cause. (meaning they can never get another government job).

Such an essay would require a certain level of basic coherence and literacy.

That may be more than these enviro-nuts can provide.

Too much snow, is proof of man-made global warming.
Too little snow, is proof of man-made global warming.
To hot, is proof of man-made global warming.
Too cold, is proof of man-made global warming.
Too rainy, is proof of man-made global warming.
Too dry, is proof of man-made global warming.
Sky is blue, is proof of man-made global warming.


OICU812 almost my exact words in response to another one of these posts on global warming. I say to people that keep invoking the global warming alarm, "okay..so what.. what do you intend to do to stop it"? After a while it gets very old. What is the "end game" for these people?

Of course, the climate on this planet changes periodically. See the chart below.

It changes pretty frequently, as it turns out. Looks like it mostly stays cool, then rises for a little while, then cool again, etc. This keeps happening roughly every 100,000 to 150,000 years.

Most recently, we're in one of those relatively warm periods.

And this latest warm period started about 20,000 years ago as temperatures began rising. They seem to have reached their "higher" level around 10,000 years ago.

People who insist we empower government to spend huge resources and put us all back into the Stone Age to change this, can I ask you something?

Do you actually believe that man did something 20,000 years ago, to make the temperatures rise as they did, and kept doing it for 10,000 years until temperatures levelled off where they are today?

How many SUVs were humans driving 20,000 years ago? Or even 10,000 years ago? How many coal-fired power plants were they running during that period? How many vast swaths of forest did they clear-cut back then? How much oil did they drill? We know for a fact they didn't have catalytic converters or fuel-injection systems at the time. Could this have contributed to man's effect on the climate back then?

And they must have done even more of these filthy, polluting activites around 130,000 years ago. Temperatures spiked even higher then, than they have during the period that started 20,000 years ago.

Now, if we can only find out what man STOPPED doing 120,000 years ago, when temperatures fell back to their relatively cool levels again, we might have a way to control the present crisis the Global Whatever fanatics keep caterwauling about. Can we put the fanatics to work researching the industrial records, newspaper accounts, and internet archives from 110,000 yeas ago, to find out how they did it?

Remember the Marcott paper people were "swooning" over?

I guess Marcott and Mann have a lot in common.

Those who don’t learn from Yamal, are condemned to repeat it – Marcott’s YAD061



Quote:
Steve McIntyre points out the YAD061 equivalent in Marcott et al, where a single sample contributed the majority of the uptick.
Seriously? After all of the garbage they went through with Mann who uses a single tree to weight his research and this comes out doing the same dang thing?

How stupid do you have to be to keep passing this garbage off?
