Obama is now making another one of his favorite pivots – this time to Climate Change.
“President Barack Obama is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects, from pipelines to highways.”
The Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) cult continues to peddle their junk science and Leftists are all too eager to buy it. The Leftist have no need to challenge the AGW theories and compare them with measurable data because they don’t want to learn the real inconvenient truth. It’s easy for them to buy what the AGW cult is selling (and tell others to do the same because the ‘science is settled’ or something) because the AGW message feels so good to them. If the Left believes Humans (and more importantly human industries) are polluting the planet and causing environmental/climate catastrophes, then they can use that ‘science’ to attack their favorite enemy – Capitalism.
Obama’s latest ‘pivot’ reminded me that it is time for my quarterly update on global atmospheric CO2 concentrations and global temperatures. All of this data is easily obtainable from the Internet and takes about an hour if you start from scratch. It’s amazing how many sheeple don’t do this before gobbling the AGW cult lies.
Here is the graph of atmospheric CO2 measurements as gathered by the Mauna Loa observatory and you can see that the CO2 levels are continuing to increase.
Let’s now look at these same temperature graphs but starting with 1998 and you can easily see that we are still in a period of flat temperature growth (I’ve added trend lines with the equation for extra emphasis) for the past 15 years.
Furthermore, if increasing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 cause increased global temperatures then we should see a linearly increasing line when we plot global temperature anomaly (delta from a baseline period) on the Y-axis and atmospheric CO2 concentration on the X-axis. From the graph below, you can see that something happened when CO2 concentrations increased to around the 370 ppm point to stop that upward trend and this inflection point raises questions. Is some other variable(s) counter acting any warming caused by CO2? Has the warming effect of CO2 reached a limit?
If CO2 is this magically powerful molecule that can control the Earth’s thermostat then someone must have changed the internal wiring of our climate system for the last 15 years.
And to add insult to injury for the AGW cult, their latest peer reviewed journal that supposedly blows the lid off skeptical claims that CO2 isn’t altering our climate has been revealed to be another victim of data manipulation. The AGW cult scientists are not just bad scientists, they are evil people.
So ignoring all these easily obtained data and the continued corruption of the AGW cult scientists, Obama will continue to grind industrial progress and jobs creation further into the abyss with this new ‘pivot’ to climate change.
