Climate alarmist ABC busted

ABC's retraction of the article

In the continuing saga of how the non-stop bombardment of global warming BS by the climate alarmists are pushing people over the edge, some to the point of committing murder-suicide and making hostile takeovers of the Discovery Channel HQ in Maryland, we now get another falsehood that’s been busted.

Remember the headline flying around the warmer sites about how the melting snow and ice on Mount Everest was making it hard to climb? You can read ABC’s take down of the article here and the original BBC article that ABC used here.

Is Mount Everest melting? Evidently no one can find a credible source regarding this article. You can thank ABC News Watch and read about the whole dirty deal at the source below.

I’ll offer my sincere thanks to them for busting more warmer bull schiessen. Now I wonder if they can get the BBC to back down, too?

Shame on major news organizations like this publishing falsehoods! More CO2 Insanity.

Hurricane Alarmism

Hurricane Earl Subject of Alarmism

This is the kind of garbage that gets people stirred up over little or nothing. The warmistas need to tone it down some lest we have more John Lees (ecoterrorist invader of the Discovery Channel Building in Silver Spring, Maryland) and Ted Kaczynskis (the Unibomber) running around blowing up or shooting people who are skeptical about anthropogenic global warming. You would think someone would get a clue, but no, we get more alarmist claptrap courtesy of this article from Boston.com’s “The Green Blog.” To quote…..

The large waves, storm surge, and flooding that Hurricane Earl will spawn as it strikes Massachusetts tomorrow night comes with an added dollop of trouble; Sea level rise. Very gradual — and in some cases accelerating — rises in sea level off our coast over the last century will boost the height of Earl’s storm surge — expected to be one to four feet — meaning the wall of water will be able to travel that much farther inland and over higher elevations to flood basements, streets, and other low-lying areas.

Of course the article just had to lay the blame at our old “friend” global warming even though it is unproven BS. “Wall of water?” This isn’t going to be a 10 meter event in Massachusetts by any stretch of the imagination. As of now it’s like a 1-4 feet predicted storm surge being predicted. I guess “wall of water” increases the drama and alarmism.

Sea level is rising, scientists say, in large part because of a global warming double punch: higher ocean temperatures that expand the volume of water, and melting glaciers that add water to the sea. So future hurricanes are likely to cause more widespread flooding.

Now doesn’t “temperatures that expand the volume of water” sound ridiculous? Yes? No? I’m not refuting laws of physics, but think about it for a second, not as a reality but with respect to an ocean, not a glass of water. Has the whole entire Atlantic Ocean suddenly and completely warmed up from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from the US to Europe and from South America to Africa? I really think not. It would be rather asinine to claim that because it is constantly warming and cooling and doing it in different places at different times. Sea-levels will vary some, yes. Yet this article appears to try to get us to believe the whole Atlantic Ocean has warmed in its entirety and will be spilling over into the United States any second now and causing flooding in Des Moines, Iowa.

As an aside, water is also a little different animal than most things. Water will expand when heated, but guess what? It also will expand when cooling. Below is a quote from eHow about it or you can go here and see for yourself.

  • Water is not like other liquids. It isn’t, well, a normal liquid. In other liquids, the basic principle holds true that heated liquids expand and cooled liquids contract. But water doesn’t exactly work the same way. Water does expand when heated and contracts when cooled, but not at all temperature levels.
  • Water has a magic range where the rules do not apply. The main reason for this difference is its makeup. Water is made up of hydrogen and oxygen, and they exist as a loose bond. The range that is different is between 0 and 4 degrees Celsius (32 degrees F to 39.2 degrees F). Water at any other temperature would expand when it is heated, and contract when cooled.
  • However, at 4 degrees Celsius (39.2 F), water is at its most contracted state, but it isn’t frozen. It doesn’t freeze until zero degrees Celsius. This means as it goes toward 0 degrees it expands because of the crystallization of the water into ice. This stems from a reorganization of the oxygen and hydrogen bonds into stronger and more complex attachments. Because water at 0 degrees Celsius (32 F) is more expanded than at 4 degrees Celsius (39.2 F), water heated from zero degrees will shrink from its crystallized state until it makes it back to 4 degrees. Beyond 4 degrees, the water will start to expand again.
  • You can see per the below chart how much the ocean as risen since 1880, which is about 20 centimeters, which equals 7.87 inches, short of the claimed foot in Falmouth by a little over 4 inches, which really isn’t a big deal as far as I’m concerned, just noted so you can see what appears to be to be another exaggeration in a long line of global warming exaggerations, which goes along with the alarmism in the article. Realistically this is 120 years of graph which amounts to a whopping  0.o6558333333 inches of rise per year or approximately 2/3 of an inch per year.  Not much to be alarmed about is there? (Note: The graph was based on 23 different locations and certainly doesn’t span every drop of every ocean and this also is global and not just the Atlantic Ocean).

    To get back on track here the reason I claim this is alarmism is that while the sea-level may be 8 inches or so higher than it was in 1880, (and yes, it’s close enough that we will go with the 1 foot claimed in the article to reduce any whining). What seems so ridiculous to me is that as of now, they’re predicting a 1 to 4 foot storm surge, which about renders that extra foot moot because regardless it’s going to spill over and cause some flooding. In the case of a hurricane Camille in 1969 the storm surge was 24.6 feet. Think the ocean being a foot or so higher is going to make any difference in a case like that? I think not anything that anyone would notice in the aftermath.

    So why the continued alarmism? Why does it appear the warmers will continue to keep stirring people up with suppositions and exaggerations? Do they want more John Lees? Do they want more Unibombers to come out of the woodwork and kill people?

    It smacks of more desperation from the warmer crowd and the mainstream media to me.  They’re losing the battle, they’re desperate, they’ll claim anything and everything is related to global warming, regardless how silly. They can’t keep exaggerating things like this and expect anyone who’s reasonable to believe it.  So what’s the point? Sell newspapers and magazines? Perhaps that some of it.

    Sometimes I think they really don’t want to win anyone over, they just want the lunatic fringe to believe in their postulating so they’ll arm themselves with guns or bombs and force everyone to do their bidding. Perhaps they’re really using the science of psychology to enforce their belief of anthropogenic global warming upon us.

    I can’t say for certain, perhaps you should ask people such as Al Gore and James Cameron about it.  James by the way seems to like the thought of ecoterrorism.  You can read about that here.

    Ecoterror jihad?

    Jame J. Lee - Ecoterrorist

    UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF PAGE

    It seems someone must have declared an ecoterror jihad. First we have warmers gluing themselves to banks, then we get Greenpeace trying  a hostile takeover of an oil drilling rig off the coast of Greenland and now we have a greentard gone mad taking over the Discovery Channel building. If there a full green cheese moon this month or something? Did someone declare an Ecoterror Jihad? Should Homeland Security be checking into the “Eco Taliban?”

    It appears to me that what we have going on here could be the forefront of a new wave of warmer desperation and despair because people are not falling for the anthropogenic global warming BS anymore. Are they getting so desperate that violence may become their main path to getting the world to genuflect to the Church of Global Warming? Think about it.

    We have Al Gore and others who have  admitted defeat on getting cap & trade passed this year in Congress. Obama appears to have stuck his head in the sand on this issue (not to mention others). The Chicago Climate Exchange (trading carbon credits) is imploding as we watch (along with Al Gore’s wallet). The UN has realized that the carbon trading scheme in Europe is about as corrupt as it gets with a $2.7 billion scam. The IPCC has been bitch-slapped by the IAC due to a lot of bad science, fraud, mismanagement and conflicts of interest surrounding their last report in 2007. The UN (justifiably) can’t get anyone to agree on much of anything about global warming or what to do or not to do about it, and the warmers appear to be losing it, perhaps big time.

    Today we hit a new low in ecoterror with James J. Lee arming himself and taking over the Discovery Channel building in Silver Spring, Maryland in a desperate effort to have the Discovery Channel do his bidding. You can read his manifesto below, taken from his website Save The Planet Protest.  I took a screenshot of this as I don’t expect that link will be working much longer.

    Manifesto From James Lee's Website

    This is a rather amazing set of demands.  We get demands and rantings such as:

    • “The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas.”
    • “Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution.”
    • “All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas.”
    • “All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. (Talk about hypocritical thinking).”
    • “Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is.”
    • “Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that.”
    • “Talk about Malthus and Darwin until it sinks into the stupid people’s brains until they get it!!”
    • “That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies!”
    • “Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what’s left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture.”

    Obviously what we have here is a sick mind, perhaps the result of being bombarded with Green bullshit from various sources until he just couldn’t deal with it anymore and went off the deep end. Per CNN this could be a part of where the problem started…..

    n a 2006 MySpace posting, Lee wrote: “I finished reading the Daniel Quinn books last month. It started off just as a recommendation from a girl who worked at a coffeehouse.

    So who’s Daniel Quinn? Well you can go here and see the website Ishmael.org , see some of what he’s about, and judge for yourself. Obviously he’s an alarmist who likes stirring people like Lee up about things such as over-population, pollution and global warming. To quote from his biography on Wikipedia…..

    While response to Ishmael was mostly very positive, Quinn inspired a great deal of controversy with his claim (most explicitly discussed in the appendix section of The Story of B) that since population growth is a function of food supply, sustained food aid to impoverished nations merely puts off and dramatically worsens a massive population-environment crisis. This crisis is born of a disconnect between local humans and the local habitat with its food. Quinn points out that ending this disconnect is a proven way to avoid famines.

    I think that explains a lot about where Mr. Lee got some of the ideas put forth in his demands to Discovery Channel regarding overpopulation problems and issues he seems to have with human reproduction. Perhaps he wanted to end a few people’s “disconnect.”

    Is this the prototype ecoterrorist? Is this what organizations such as Greenpeace want running about? Ecoterrorst who will shoot or blow up people, companies and organizations who don’t follow their green dogma? Is this what people like Al Gore are creating?

    The reason I mention the above is that according to this article from AP…..

    At Lee’s trial, The Gazette of Montgomery County reported, Lee said he began working to save the planet after being laid off from his job in San Diego.

    He said he was inspired by “Ishmael,” a novel by environmentalist Daniel Quinn, and by former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”

    Evidently watching some programs on the Discovery channel also helped create this mindset and his attack on the Discovery Channel itself…..

    “The Discovery Channel produces many so-called ‘Environmental Programs’ supposedly there to save the planet,” Lee said in an ad he took out in a Washington newspaper to promote the protest. “But the truth is things are getting WORSE! Their programs are causing more harm than good.”

    I’d bet programs like “Whale Wars” didn’t help his mindset either. It wouldn’t be a stretch to surmise this show may have given him some ideas about going on the attack against society. Kind of like monkey see, monkey do. Whaling ship or TV station, what’s the difference to someone like James Lee?

    One could also speculate as to whether things emanating from Greenpeace such as: “We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.” may have played into the mindset of this ecoterrorist.

    Of course, no one will be prosecuted for putting such thoughts into this man’s mind. Greenpeace will continue harassing whaling ships, Al Gore will perhaps continue harassing masseuses, etc. After all, it’s not their fault the got him so stirred up that he took over the Discovery Channel building and was killed by the police, now is it?

    I guess you could term this “Anthropogenic CO2 Insanity.” A term I hope we don’t start using with more frequency. I have to wonder if the “Eco Taliban” aren’t calling for “Eco Jihad” against innocent people. Time will tell.
