The only consensus is in the minds of the morons that espouse global warming is man made, or that it even exists in anything other than a natural occurrence within the earth’s atmosphere.

Anyone notice that the global warming morons have gotten less boisterous in their routine?

Climate Consensus? What Climate Consensus?
By Peter C Glover

The myths of popular science have a nasty habit of running ahead of the real story by a decade or two. They are difficult to dislodge. It has always been thus. Take the myth that global warming (GW) is today a feature of current global climate activity. Whatever the reason for it, GW hasn’t been happening for 16 years – and not a single computer model predicted it. Then there is the breaking news that the global sea ice area is above normal – and that in the midst of the Antarctic summer. Not exactly been mainstream news has it? But then, as both stories run counter to the prevailing consensus and popular myth, that’s not surprising.

There’s the myth peddled by David Attenborough that polar bears are threatened by extinction when it turns out they are actually thriving; along with stories that that ‘renewable’ energy is an economically viable energy-generating concept; that windmills can provide reliable, regular and cost-effective power demanded by modern grids and energy users; that electric cars make sense at all, given they can only get you from London to Oxford before their batteries expire requiring 16 hours re-charging, and … well, you get the picture. The nexus between green myth and a pro-alarmist mass media committed to falling for, and publicizing, them is plain enough. Which brings us to the big daddy in our age: the myth of still attempting to proclaim a ‘science consensus’ when it comes to anthropogenic global warming (AGW).

Back in the 90s I was an early ‘heretic’ on global warming. For me the facts and data just didn’t add up. But having spent years investigating the claims of huckster false prophets in the church for duping the gullible it increasingly became clear that today’s false prophets have donned white coats, exchanged crystal balls for computer modelling and take the public ‘shilling’ to do planet-saving research. But their chief message was the same: the end-is-nigh – unless you listen to me and do what I tell you. Science-writer Michael Crichton was the first to sum up this paradigm shift to wholesale faith in an environmental Grand Narrative that set the AGW prophetic belief-system rolling.

…up front. I’m easily amused.

…one has to really love this Nazi propaganda. I mean UK global warming scam video.
No pressure…
Douche bags.

…that President Obama is a moron.

Global warming stopped 16 years ago and here he is promoting global warming. The EPA must be coming out with something so onerous to the economy that he has to jump out in front of it to dull the senses of the morons that voted for him.

There has been no aggregate warming since 1997. Once again, the MSM is AWOL.

Elections have consequences.

President Obama: ‘I am a firm believer that climate change is real’

President Barack Obama held his first postelection press conference today, Nov. 14, 2012, in the East room at the White House. The president took eight questions from the White House press corps; one of those questions was on the subject of Global Climate Change, and the President’s plan to “tackle the issue of climate change”.

Mark Landler, part of the White House press corps and a journalist for the New York Times, asked the President the following question on Global Climate Change.

“Mr. President. In his endorsement of you a few weeks ago, Mayor Bloomberg said he was motivated by the belief that you would do more to confront the threat of climate change than your opponent. Tomorrow you’re going up to New York City, where you’re going to, I assume, see people who are still suffering the effects of Hurricane Sandy, which many people say is further evidence of how a warming globe is changing our weather. What specifically do you plan to do in a second term to tackle the issue of climate change? And do you think the political will exists in Washington to pass legislation that could include some kind of a tax on carbon?”

The president did not shy away from the question, saying, “I am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior and carbon emissions.”

Report: ‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago’…

…is poised to destroy American jobs and force energy prices through the roof. If he is reelected, he’ll unleash the full list of job killing, energy spiking regulations that the EPA has held in check until after the election. You haven’t wondered why he hasn’t promised that global warming will end in his next term?
The EPA has got to be stopped! If Obama is reelected, then there is no hope for America’s future energy independence.

Obama’s EPA Plans for 2013
By S. Fred Singer

The November elections will determine the direction of US climate policy — and therefore also energy policy and the pace of economic growth: jobs, standards of living, budget deficits and inflation.  Obama has already promised to make climate change the centerpiece of his concern — with all that implies: “Green” energy policy, linked to loss of jobs (Keystone pipeline disapproval), rising gas prices (ethanol mandates), and crony capitalism (Solyndra).

By contrast, Romney is a climate skeptic — and Ryan has been quite outspoken: the perfect anti-Gore.  The science supports Romney-Ryan — notwithstanding the UN-IPCC, and the bulk of the climate scientists living high on the hog on government grants.

All of this emerged from campaign rhetoric — but it needs to be spelled out more clearly.  Note that Obama no longer promises to “heal the Earth and stop the rise of the oceans.”  He has also been uncharacteristically quiet about his efforts to “make electricity prices skyrocket.”  But there is more in store if he is re-elected and unleashes the full regulatory apparatus of the EPA.

…is not so rewarding apparently.
Here’s an essay from someone that recently left one of those “green” jobs that the liberals in this country are hell bent on forcing down everyone’s throats. It’s a fine example of liberal stupidity and the fact that green energy is for the detriment of man kind in order for it to prevail. 

Pay particular attention to the costs associated with green energy vs. the traditional coal, and hydroelectricity.

I had a green job
By Deborah Sloan

Mitt Romney has recently taken fire not only from the Obama campaign but even from some left-leaning Republicans, for his rightful criticism of Obama’s destructive “green jobs” programs.  Not only is Mr. Romney right to criticize these programs — and his position supported by many economic studies — but in fact the situation is even worse than anything suggested by these criticisms. Green jobs are destroying the abilities and spirits of a whole generation of engineers. I should know. I was one of those engineers.

In 2008 I completed my Masters in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford and took a “Green Job” with a solar company. Excitingly, it seemed to match the green rhetoric–to have potential to create the incredible value of cleaner, cheaper energy.

Unfortunately, the more I learned about my job and industry, the more I realized they were fundamentally flawed.

Management said we would be competitive with oil and gas once we manufactured panels for $1.00/watt. But as a mechanical engineer, I learned most of solar’s cost is not panels themselves but “balance of system” (BOS) components like DC to AC converters, wiring, and structural mounting, adding about $3.00/watt for a best-case total of $4.00/watt. Coal and hydroelectric systems cost as low as $2.10/watt and $1.00/watt, respectively. Ifound no evidence that solar’s BOS costs would decrease meaningfully.

…in North Las Vegas. Why is the government giving money to the green energy sector, when it is obviously a failing policy?

I ask myself that a lot about many of the things that government wastes our tax dollars on. But as long as the Senate is controlled by Democrats, shit like this is going to keep happening. Don’t get me wrong, there are RINOs that need to be purged as well.

This is yet another reason to go vote and fire every last one of these bastards and that includes the SCOAMF.

Amonix closes North Las Vegas solar plant after 14 months, heavy federal subsidies

By Hubble Smith
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

The Amonix solar manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, subsidized by more than $20 million in federal tax credits and grants, has closed its 214,000-square-foot facility about a year after it opened.

Officials at Amonix headquarters in Seal Beach, Calif., have not responded to repeated calls for comment this week, but the company began selling equipment, from automated tooling systems to robotic welding cells, in an online auction Wednesday.

A designer and manufacturer of concentrated photovoltaic solar power systems, Amonix received $6 million in federal tax credits for the North Las Vegas plant and a $15.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2007 for research and development.

Rene Kenerly, a former material and supply manager at Amonix, said the plant has been idle since May 1, when he was laid off. At its peak, the plant had about 700 employees working three shifts a day to produce solar panels for a utility in Amarosa, Colo., he said.
