The Carboniferous Ends?

Posted in Politics, The Environment on July 21st, 2014

A cooling world covered in snowChange is unavoidable. All epochs, periods, eras, and ages come to an end. Just as 360 million years ago the Carboniferous period ended, so too does it seem as if the New Carboniferous period – notable for its fixation upon CO2 – has come to a not-untimely end.

Then, this was never a sustainable era due to its chilling effects upon economies.

The ending of the New Carboniferous period will likely be dated from the moment that the Australian Government has abolished the carbon tax it had imposed in mid-2012.

Australia’s recent vote to repeal its tax on carbon dioxide emissions is a setback to establishing a similar charge in the U.S., both sides in the debate agree.

Australia started taxing carbon in 2012, one of about 40 jurisdictions to do so, before reversing course last week and becoming the first country to repeal the penalty.

The repeal will send international shock waves ahead of Global Warming talks next year, when major economies like China, India and America will consider global greenhouse targets beyond 2030. Given that Australia is similar to America in its energy-intensive lifestyles and industries, the repeal makes it highly unlikely that the US will choose to try taxes CO2 emissions.

The Warmists are, of course, gnashing their teeth in shock, outrage, and hatred over Australia’s repeal of the its carbon tax. Like the giant arthropods of the first Carboniferous period, they’re doomed to extinction. Unlike them, however, they can see the ending of the age and of themselves.

Simple Climate Truth

Posted in Society, The Environment on April 17th, 2014

I’ll give the Warmists full marks for tenacity. Even in the wake of total failures of every one of the models to match reality and society as a general whole dismissing their alarmism and agenda, they still spend a fair amount of effort and money on preaching Global Warming.

Climate Truth
Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

The simple truth, however, is that their beliefs have more akin to religion than to science. When it comes to climate anyone’s guess as to what is going to happen and why it’s going to do so is as good as anyone else’s. The system is too large, complex, and has too many input variables for mankind to model or predict.

That won’t seemingly stop the Warmists though. They’ve taken their scripture to heart and will remain as staunchly faithful to it as the most devout of the Young Earth creationism. ;-)

April Snow Showers?

Posted in Humor, Society, The Environment on April 16th, 2014

I get the idea of April showers…but snow showers? Really, Mother Nature? I thought you were supposed be having hot flashes from Global Warming.

It’s Fucking Cold & Windy But Not Unbearable ;-)

That’s right! It’s the middle of April but last night the Sping weather made an exit in the Tristate region. Snow moved back in late last night. Heavy, wet snow was reported from the Hudson Valley, northern New Jersey and New York City and temperatures are expected to remain unseasonable cold through the week.
