The Science Is Settled!

When you can't get even the most basic of premises right...

Climate change: Models 'underplay plant CO2 absorption'
Global climate models have underestimated the amount of CO2 being absorbed by plants, according to new research.

Scientists say that between 1901 and 2010, living things absorbed 16% more of the gas than previously thought.

The authors say it explains why models consistently overestimated the growth rate of carbon in the atmosphere.
You know, that CO2 that they've repeatedly claimed is a direct result of ZOMG GLOBAL WARMING Climate Change? And they haven't even been using the right number. Oh, no worries, though. It won't affect grant money:
But experts believe the new calculation is unlikely to make a difference to global warming predictions.
Right. One of the central underpinnings of global warming has been proven wrong, but it won't change anything. Now, imagine if they discovered that it was 16% the other way? Think it'd still be no big deal? If you do, I have some lovely beachfront property in Arizona to sell, cheap...

Here's the thing, though. I believe them when they say it won't make a difference. Why? Because they're just making this up. We have seen, repeatedly, a willingness to stretch the truth to fit whatever their preconceived notion might be. They haven't exactly used sound scientific method or been all that interested in exploring options (that don't conform to hobbling the US and the EU on the world stage, that is...)

Wonder, though, what would happen if we started curtailing our CO2 output only to see plants start dying off?

That is all.

Global Warming / Climate Change,
the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.

Except for that little 19 year pause in global warming that has been going on -- you know the one where temps haven't been going up as predicted for nearly 2 decades

And notice the Time Span. Except for North America, I can guarantee that there is LESS plant life available for CO2 absorption in 2010 that there was in 1901.

Remember all the "Save the Rainforest!" crap from 20 years ago? Trust me, outside the U.S and Canada, any tree that's still standing in Africa, South America, Asia and the Middle East needs to Open Carry!

BTW, where's all those "Cat 6" Hurricanes that were supposed to flood the East Coast up to YOUR Front Door? Didn't the same crowd claim 5 years ago that Baltimore and Philly and Miami would be Swamp Land by now?

First off it's Climate Change .... Not Global warming.

Haven't you been paying attention? Every night we lead the news with pictures of bad weather//// I mean Massive Thunderstorms and flooding we manage to find somewhere in the US.

There have even been TORNADOES!!!!! ( somewhere ) and Typhoons and earthquakes all caused by George Bush!!!!

... ah Global //// I mean Climate Change.......

Look .... Over There!!!!
