Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

Not just in the U.S. But globally.

2/16/2016 5:00 PM EST

Corruption: Zimbabwe tyrant Robert Mugabe is asking the United Nations for $1.5 billion a year to feed his people, who he says are hungry due to global warming. The looting begins.

About a year ago, we said that the global warming scare is not about stewardship of the environment. It is instead an effort to pull down capitalism and redistribute wealth from rich nations that earned it to poorer nations whose governments impoverish their own people. Mugabe fully understands the plan and is making his demands accordingly.

The Zimbabwe Herald, the state-run newspaper, reports that a fifth of the country’s population is facing hunger and insists that if global warming isn’t causing the hunger now, then it will be soon. But hunger in Zimbabwe is nothing new, though it is man-caused. It’s the work of Mugabe, though, not Westerners driving SUVs, air conditioning their large homes and running a wealth-producing capitalist economy.

Before the Marxist Mugabe ruined Zimbabwe, it was a net food exporter, considered the breadbasket of Africa. Wheat, corn and sugar cane were routinely shipped across the continent and beyond.

Mugabe has been president since 1980, but his reign of terror began in 2000, when he started plundering private farmland in his “land reform” program.

Consequently, the annual corn harvest withered from more than 1.5 million tons in 2000 to 600,000 tons in 2010. Wheat production also fell sharply, from 309,000 tons in 2000 to 27,000 tons in 2003 to roughly 18,000 tons in 2010. The 2015 harvests were hardly better for either crop.

Meanwhile, next door in Botswana, a nation with a similar climate and natural resources, food production has increased by 29% since 2004 while declining 9% during the same time in Zimbabwe.

Naturally, Zimbabwe’s economy has suffered as well. By 2009, inflation had reached 500 billion percent thanks to Mugabe’s Marxist policies, and the economy contracted 10% between 1998 and 2008. Mugabe’s regime also created a brain drain, as 3 million fled, including “tens of thousands of doctors and lawyers,” says Marian Tupy of the Cato Institute.

But Mugabe knows that the United Nations will pay no attention to the facts. It will pretend that Zimbabwe’s hardships are due to global warming and likely give him what he’s asking for from the Green Climate Fund, created last year at the Paris climate talks to “to assist developing countries in adaptation and mitigation practices to counter climate change.”

For those who think this would be a humanitarian response, think again.

“Any money which falls into Mugabe’s hands is unlikely to be spent on food, or if it is, he will be very selective about who receives the food,” says climate blogger Eric Worrall.

“Make no mistake, if the promised U.N. climate cash starts flowing in Africa,” Mugabe and other “vicious political thugs who are well enmeshed in pan-African diplomacy … will collar the lion’s share.”

Tupy calls the Green Climate Fund a “slush fund” for the world’s dictators, and he’s exactly right because Mugabe won’t be the only one to dip into the treasure that was made just for them. One by one and in groups, they will come with their demands, and they will leave with their hands full. The productive citizens in advanced nations will be poorer, and so will the poor souls who live under the tyrants’ boots. Only the malevolent leaders and those in their elite circles will be better off.

This, of course, is perfectly in line with the U.N.’s goal to “intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history,” as Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, has put it. It is the real reason behind the global warming scare.

I found it Larry Koko the Gorilla.
Hopefully the link will work for others. Total BS of course, what I found extraordinary was a conservation group using a captured, caged and endangered gorilla to get their message across.

To be fair, Koko exhibits far more humanitarian behaviour than some of her knuckle dragging distant relations do at the local kebab house on a Saturday night.. Perhaps there's something in it after all...

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

IT'S THE SUN, STUPID!
Cosmic Cycles, not Carbon Dioxide, Control Climate.

VIV FORBES


Wed 24 Feb 2016 11:50:21 am/503 COMMENTS
Those who think the political war on carbon will lower Earth’s temperature or keep climate stable need to study climate history.
Temperatures on Earth dance to a cyclic rhythm every hour, every day, every month, every season, every year, and to every beat of the sun-spot and glacial cycles.
The daily solar cycle causes continual changes in temperature for every spot on Earth.
It produces the frosts at dawn, the mid-day heat and the cooling at sunset. It is regulated by rotation of the Earth.
Superimposed on the daily solar cycle is the monthly lunar cycle, driven by the orbit of the Moon around the Earth. These two cycles interact to produce variations in atmospheric pressure and tides, and currents in the oceans and the atmosphere.
These are the daily weather makers.
The yearly seasonal cycle is caused as the tilted axis of Earth’s rotation affects the intensity of solar energy received by each hemisphere. This produces spring, summer, autumn and winter for every spot on Earth.

Then there is the 22 year sun-spot cycle, which correlates with cycles of floods and droughts. Sunspot cycles are indicators of solar activity which causes periods of global warming and cooling.
Variations on the sun also affect the intensity of cosmic rays reaching Earth’s surface – cosmic rays create nuclei for low level cloud formation, and the shading from such clouds reduces surface temperatures.
Earth’s climate is also disrupted periodically by the effects of changing winds, ocean hot spots and submarine volcanism that produce the El Nino Southern Oscillation.
The least recognised but most dangerous climate cycle is the glacial cycle. We are fortunate to live in the Holocene Epoch, the latest warm phase of the Pleistocene Ice Age.
The climate history of the Holocene, and its predecessor the Eemian, are well documented in ice core logs and other records in the rocks. Each cycle consists of a glacial age of about 80,000 years followed by a warmer age of about 20,000 years, with the peak warming occurring over about 12,000 years.
Our modern warm era commenced 12,000 years ago and peaked during the Medieval Warming, so it is probably nearing its end.
The Holocene Warmth as revealed by the Greenland Ice Cores.
The Eemian Warm Period was warmer than today.
There have been eight warm eras separated by long glacial winters over the last 800,000 years of the Pleistocene.
In every beat of this cycle, the vast ice sheets melt, sea levels rise dramatically, coral reefs and coastal settlements are drowned, and forests and animals re-colonise the higher land released from the ice.
Warm climate animals such as hippos, water buffaloes and elephants got as far north as Germany in the last warm era.
Then suddenly the ice returned, covering the northern hemisphere as far south as Chicago and London, destroying the forests, lowering the seas, stranding the relocated coral reefs and eliminating unprepared species. (Some dopey grizzly bears got stranded in the Arctic Ice and the most enterprising of them survived to evolve into white grizzlies now called polar bears.)
This regular repetition of natural climate change is partially explained by the Milankovitch cycles relating to changes in Earth’s precession, orbit and tilt.
These drive variations in solar energy received by Earth and have the greatest temperature effect on the large land masses of the Northern Hemisphere.
On an even longer time scale, oscillation of the solar system through the plane of the Galaxy seems to trigger magnetic reversals and violent spasms of volcanism, crustal movements, glaciation and species extinction. Earth is never still for long.
These cycles interact to produce a wide range of ever-changing temperatures.
Even at the same moment, temperatures vary dramatically from the equator to the poles and from the surface to the stratosphere.
For would-be climate “managers” to claim they can calculate a mythical “global temperature” with precision greater than thermometers can measure is statistical nonsense.
It is a wonder of the modern era that people who cannot accurately forecast next weekend’s weather claim they can regulate the temperature of the whole globe by bashing industry and taxing carbon.
What is the role of carbon dioxide in climate?
Al Gore did a great job to dramatise the recurring glacial cycles in his widely acclaimed work of science fiction. But he missed two inconvenient truths.
First, ice cores show that in the glacial spring-time the temperature rose BEFORE the CO2 levels rose. Therefore the rising CO2 cannot be a CAUSE of the warming – it is a RESULT of CO2 being expelled from the warming oceans.
Second, at the top of every summer-time in the glacial cycle, the high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere were unable to prevent the cooling into the next cycle of ice.
We are already in the autumn of the current glacial cycle and nothing man can do will change that.
Global temperatures today are lower than they were in Roman and Medieval times.
They will still fluctuate with the effects of daily, lunar, yearly and sun-spot cycles, but the long-term trend of maximum and minimum temperatures will continue drifting downwards.
Once summer temperatures in places like Siberia are unable to melt last winter’s snow, the already growing glaciers will join to form ice sheets and Earth will once again be gripped by another long Glacial Winter.
The transition from Greenhouse Earth to Icehouse Earth always occurs suddenly. Once our verdant greenhouse is gone, life on Earth will never be the same again. Greenhouse Earth will surely come around again, but many of today’s species will probably not survive to welcome the return of the warmth.
The warm days, seasons, years and epochs have never been a deadly threat to life on Earth. Frost, snow, hail and ice are the killers.
If our descendants do not have the energy, resources and wisdom to keep their people warm and fed through the coming glacial epoch, humans may follow our Neanderthal cousins who perished in the last glacial winter, just 20,000 years ago.
There is NO evidence in climate history that carbon dioxide has a detectable effect on global temperatures.
However if our continued use of cheap reliable hydro-carbon energy does slightly delay the onset of the next glacial winter, we and all life on Earth should count ourselves extremely lucky.

(Sigh) 'Evidently just one more of many "inconvenient truths" (sorry, Al) that doesn't 'jive' with the global warming/climate change-pushers' anti-CO2 mantra.

But, let's spend GADZILLIONS of dollars annually to reduce CO2 by, say, 00.000004% anyway 'just in case'...and let's put an end to the fossil fuel industry while we're at it.

They probably will but then again Co2 emissions have not been reduced by any significant amount if at all.

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

So what is the goal of environmental policy?

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.

And yet in light of/despite statements like that, how many "global warmers" continue to insist the whole G.W./C.C. scam is real???

Worse yet - how many actually continue to believe it?
