Scientists pin down historic sea level rise – with pinheads.

Scientists pin down historic sea level rise – with pinheads. Today we have another in a massive quantity of articles all designed to make you soil your underwear and capitulate to the global warming gods and start donating money to the Goreacle, et al. You can see in the quotes what I’m talkin’ about.

The collapse of an ice sheet in Antarctica up to 14,650 years ago might have caused sea levels to rise between 14 and 18 meters, a study showed on Wednesday, data which could help make more accurate climate change predictions.

Note by stating  this ‘could help make more accurate climate change predictions’ they’ve basically admitted a) that they’re not certain and b) that what they have now sucks, yet you’re supposed to be stupid and buy a house in the mountains so you don’t get flooded. It gets better.

Sea levels have increased on average about 18 centimetres since 1900 and rapid global warming will accelerate the pace of the increase, experts say, putting coastlines at risk and forcing low-lying cities to build costly sea defenses.

Ummm…..yeah, right. 18 centimeters is only about 7 inches over 112 years, which is a whopping 0.0625 inches per year. Yep, I’m heading for the high ground and giving all my worldly possessions to the UN’s IPCC immediately.

Haven’t had enough BS yet? Well, it still gets even better!

Scientists last month said that thinning glaciers and ice caps were pushing up sea levels by 1.5 millimetres a year, and experts forecast an increase of as much as two meters by 2100.

OK, so look at the graphs below. See the Arctic sea-ice? Does it look like it’s disappearing? Nope! It’s increasing! See any thinning? I don’t.

Now here’s a real clear statement.

A very rapid sea level rise is thought to have occurred 14,650 years ago but details about the event have been unclear.

Yes, though things are ‘unclear’ you’re supposed to be a total dumbass and buy into this BS, which show’s you the intelligence of some global warming fans who continue to fan the flames even though someone doused them with a fire hose already.

Regardless, and to further add to the insane things we’re supposed to believe we’d like to know why this is even remotely relevant to anthropogenic global warming? Why? Because sure as the sun shines, there was no man-made global warming 14,650 years ago.

AL GORE RECANTS GLOBAL WARMING!

In an amazing turn of events Al Gore has recanted Global Warming! After selling all his stock in the Carrier Air Conditioning Company and buying heating oil futures, Al was noted to be telling his cohorts that global cooling was coming fast and that he was buying property in the Amazon Jungle where it’s nice and warm. April Fools!

Warmer Climate Smaller Horses?

Now here’s a good one! An article titled “Global warming ‘could make us shorter’ after horses are found to have shrunk the LAST time the world heated up.”

First, notice the favorite word of the warmers “could.” More unsettled settled science, the usual scare them to death but offer no legitimate sounding proof.

Second, notice we’re talking horses here. No not talking horses like Mr. Ed, but talking about horses. Actually it may be a case of horses asses talking about horses. I see no evidence about this affecting any other creature on the face of the earth, meaning to me that it could just be unique to horses and have nothing whatsoever do to with climate.

Third, this flies in the face of common sense when considering norms associated with climate and evolution. Generally speaking, it’s been agreed upon that when it’s warmer there’s more food and when it’s colder there’s less. So claiming that we get smaller horses when it’s warmer and there’s a larger food supply smells like horse shit to me. It also doesn’t explain the huge dinosaurs that roamed the earth during extremely warm periods with plenty of food around to eat and get big, nor does it explain that why, after whatever apocalypse caused the dinosaurs demise, the smaller animals that ate less survived while the larger ones died. When food is in short supply (like when its ice-age time) the smaller critters that eat less will get by while the bigger ones who eat like pigs won’t find enough food and thus starve to death. The exact opposite of this s0-called theory.

Nope, this sounds to me like another case of finding a solution to a non-existent problem as long as it can be blamed upon global warming.

More CO2 Insanity. Don’t believe it? Look at that guy in the picture above and tell me that’s going to be the next Seabiscuit?

When the Earth Goes Tilt

Tilt! A word associated with pinball games (if anyone remembers what those are) is now associated with the warming and cooling of the planet.

The idea that slight shifts in Earth’s axis might have been enough to trigger the ice ages is a century old.

But a Harvard earth sciences Professor Peter Huybers has finally proved it, using computer models to test competing ideas – and finding that earth’s tilting axis is the only one that works.

So, per this, it’s not that nasty old anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 that certain warmers have been blithering about for decades, it’s the variation of the tilt of the Earth’s axis, something I remember hearing about in grade school about 50 years ago, in pre-Goracle times when kids were taught actual science and didn’t major in Greentard Brainwashing 101.

Two ‘cycles’ in the way Earth’s axis spins have an effect on the cycle – one lasting 10,000 years and one lasting roughly 40,000 years.

When they align correctly, ice melts. At the other extreme, glaciers advance.

‘And at least now we know with greater than 99 percent confidence that shifts in earth’s axis are among the factors that contribute to deglaciation.’ 

OK. We’re waiting for certain people out there we all know and ‘love’ to capitulate and say ‘oops!’, but we won’t hold our breath.

The San Francisco Green Energy Ripoff

A photo of San Francisco at night with green power?

It seems San Francisco will soon have “free” green energy that isn’t “free” or very “green.” Instead of “free” and “green” we get this:

  • Monthly bills will increase by $84 to $180 annually
  • You’re signed up automatically and if you don’t opt out your stuck with the increase
  • Due to the unreliability of wind power and solar your electricity will still come from coal and gas power plants when those don’t work on windless and cloudy days.
  • The startup costs $19.5 million including $15 million placed in an escrow account to pay Shell Energy North America if the program is terminated before the contract expires in 4½ years.

San Francisco, touted as “the city that knows how” evidently only “knows how” to rip off the taxpayers. There are probably 19.5 million ways to spend that $19.5 million on things that would make San Francisco a better place to live than on overpriced faux green energy.

The city’s a mess in many places. Traffic’s a mess, the streets are a mess, the homeless are a mess, crime is a mess, there are many blighted places. Let’s not forget that the schools are taking it  in the shorts thanks to Jerry Brown’s faux budget that recently fell apart and could also use that money.

Nope, in San Francisco politics it’s better to genuflect to the imaginary green energy god. Keeping PG & E who appears to be able to provide  cleaner, more reliable and less expensive energy would have just been too simple compared to creating another SF bureaucracy that appears to be FUBAR before it even starts.

If you thought that the power going out a Candlestick Park during a nationally televised football game was an embarrassment just wait and see what happens, or doesn’t, as the case may be. No wonder the 49’ers want to move to Santa Clara.

Federal judge blocks Calif. low-carbon fuels rule

gas

It appears we have a judge with some common sense who even knows about the Constitution.

U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence O’Neill ruled Thursday that the rules violated a commerce clause by discriminating against crude oil and biofuels producers located outside California.

California already has overpriced gasoline due to regulations stipulating how it’s made, not to mention different formulas for summer and winter. All this does is drive the price of gas up because no one else is going to bother making it unless they have a refinery in California.

Have a refinery down for maintenance or a refinery fire and the price almost always goes up due to the laws of supply and demand that are continually ignored by CARB and elected officials in favor of some special unicorn magic that will save us all from ourselves.

We’d like to see this ruling applied to all gas in California. Then perhaps some competition will lower the prices to a more reasonable level.

BP DUMPS SOLAR

……And another one bites the dust. British Petroleum is shuttering its solar manufacturing business. More proof that solar isn’t the big panacea it’s touted to be and is not going to be providing many shovel-ready jobs in the United States or anywhere else, with the possible exception of China.

The unit, which BP has been scaling back since 2008, is the latest sun energy business to fall victim to rampant competition from China, falling prices, overcapacity and lower government subsidies on which the industry still depends.

This doesn’t only affect Europe, this is going to have a worldwide effect…..

The company confirmed on Wednesday that it plans to exit its large-scale projects at Long Haven in the U.S. and Moree in Australia.

Add this to the long list of dead or dying companies such as Solyndra and Evergreen Solar in the US and…..

Swiss bank Sarasin said in a recent study that Conergy and Q-Cells were among the German solar companies most exposed to the sector’s crisis.

We continue to maintain that if solar power was such a great idea government subsidies would not be necessary for solar to be a big financial and energy success and it appears we’re becoming more right as each day passes. Someone should get the people running the US Department of Energy and  California Governor Jerry Brown out of their green comas and advise them of this.

Please don’t bring up oil company subsidies. At least they have a viable product, make a profit and pay taxes.
