Global Warming Craziness

I am sure most everybody has heard the diatribe from R.I. Sen. Whitehouse linking the Oklahoma tornado to global warming.  If you haven’t seen or heard his load of bull waste, here is the transcript:

So, you may have a question for me. Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, we’re in this together.

Call me crazy, but I thought Oklahoma is in the heart of “Tornado Alley”.  I figure tornado alley has the name because a lot of tornadoes are experienced in this area which covers Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.  I was unaware global warming was the sole cause of this particular natural event.  Apparently if we just stop polluting (with CO2, an important chemical compound for life, especially for plants and trees) then there would be no more tornadoes, hurricanes, or wildfires (which is either caused by lightning or somebody’s cigarette, which must have all it’s origins in global warming).

Global warming worshipers are committed to their faith in this god of theirs.  Recently, on a local radio talk show, the host (Chris Baker) was talking about global warming (actually talking about the myth that is global warming), when he got a semi-educated liberal caller (all liberals are only semi-educated at best or as Reagan said “It’s not that liberals don’t know much, it’s that so much of what they know isn’t true).  The caller had a number of facts that would not be refuted by Mr. Baker.  Chris did bring up the fact that the earth has actually been cooling over the last decade, to which the caller retorted, “You can cherry pick any numbers you like, taking a ten year time period when I have 130 years of data”.   The caller also blamed global warming as the culprit for tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires and cats and dogs living together (OK, I made the last part up) and he claimed we will experience more winter snows and summer storms and some years of droughts and warm winters due to global warming.

How do you argue with a person with such answers?

Let’s forget the ten years Chris Baker used happens to be the last ten years, which is still going on and may show further cooling, we just don’t know yet.  Let’s look at what the liberals are using…130 years of data.  When faced with this retort, remind the lib, that temperature measuring  instruments have changed in the last 130 years, which could affect the data and where the temperatures have been measured over the last 130 years probably has changed.  Most monitoring devices are placed in urban areas or near other external heat sources.  I’m sure 130 years ago there wasn’t as much concrete around and a lot more heat absorbing grass.

Why are the libs just using the last 130 years?  Could it be because some scientist believe the mini-ice age ending around the same time?  Just using my own common sense, but if you are coming out of a mini ice age, wouldn’t temperatures increase overall?

The hottest decade since the medieval warming period is still the 1930’s.  Yes, the hottest single year since the medieval warming period is 1998, I believe, but it has been on a cooling trend since.

As far as the tornadoes and hurricanes are concerned; To believe a tornado in tornado alley, or anywhere (since tornadoes have been recorded in every state in the union) is the result of global warming is fear mongering and just plain stupid.  Same for hurricanes.  These events have been occurring since the beginning of time on this continent.  How stupid is it to believe wildfires are the result of global warming?  As I had indicated above, wildfires are the result of lightening or cigarettes, in an area that is dry, but that happens every year.  Drought or no drought (which have been occurring since biblical times, off and on for years at a time) vegetation dries up and becomes great kindling  for fires.

The last claim from the lib caller is just another example of “stupid”.  Sounds like he just claimed all weather, normal or not is caused by global warming.

You will never win an argument with a global warming worshipper, because a lot of what they believe is faith.  Even though they can’t see it, they know global warming exists.  They aren’t so different from those of us who believe in Christ.  We believe without seeing, even though there are people who say we are crazy.  They believe in global warming even though they are shown evidence to the contrary.  The difference:  It is much easier to prove the existence of God than it is to prove global warming.
