Wow, I’m impressed, John Kerry, the ultimate “climatologist.” Who wouldathunkit. So what’s so impressive about the man who got shot in the ass in Vietnam? Well………that bullet may have actually hit his brain. You won’t believe this one, but here it is courtesy of CNS News.
Speaking at a town hall-style meeting promoting climate change legislation on Thursday, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) predicted there will be “an ice-free Arctic” in “five or 10 years.”
“The arctic ice is disappearing faster than was predicted,” Kerry said. “And instead of waiting until 2030 or whenever it was to have an ice-free Arctic, we’re going to have one in five or 10 years.”
5 or 10 years? Very interesting indeed! Are we talking Earth years? Or, perhaps years on Pluto? Even NOAA isn’t that retarded.
However, the Web site of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says: “Using the observed 2007/2008 summer sea ice extents as a starting point, computer models predict that the Arctic could be nearly sea ice-free in summertime within 30 years.”
At least they give it 30 years. So where does Kerry get this information from?
NSNews.com called Sen. Kerry’s office on Thursday to ask for the source of the senator’s assertion that there will be “an ice-free Arctic” in five to ten years. The office directed CNSNews.com to contact Kerry press secretary Whitney Smith by email. Smith did not respond to repeated emails asking the source for Kerry’s assertion about the Arctic ice
I bet I know….it’s called a brain-fart. Or, perhaps he OD’ed on too much Heinz 57? Want to see another one?
In his talk on Thursday, Kerry said environmental degradation is happening faster than previously anticipated
Did he mean to say mental degradation?
“The Audubon Society – not exactly, you know, an ideological entity on the right or the left or wherever in America – has reported that its members are reporting a hundred-mile swath in the United States of America where plants, shrubs, trees, flowers – things that used to grow — don’t grow any more,” Kerry said.
Oh? Where is this? No comment? I Googled it, but I don’t see any 100 mile swath in the United States. Is this a 100 mile swath like 100 miles wide that goes from the Canadian Border to Mexico? Or, does it go from the East to West coasts? Or, is it 100 miles long and 10 inches wide? I’d like to know. Or, could he be referring to Death Valley? It’s about 100 miles long and not much grows there.
I wonder if Murmansk will have a yacht harbor where he can park his new yacht and save $400,000 dollars like he just did by putting it in Newport, Rhode Island? Will he get a sudden urge for a masseuse or four?
Well, I for one am waiting for the announcement that Mr. Kerry will be next years recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. I mean if they gave one to the IPCC and Al Gore, then they should certainly give one to John Kerry, who actually makes the IPCC and AL look smart after this statement. Which actually is something I would have thought impossible, until today.
