Believers In Global Warming See What They Want to Believe

Since I recently posted about government food and nutrition “science,” perhaps I should revisit bad science in another area. We are having unseasonably warm weather right now. Here is a recent Associated Press video: For at least one of the people interviewed, the weather is obviously the result of “global warming.” He complains of those who resist the belief. To Associated Press’s credit, the description of the video acknowledged the real scientific consensus: A weather pattern partly Read more […]

Still No Extreme Weather that Global Warming is Supposed to Cause

Whenever extreme weather hits, it proves climate change, and when it stops for longer than expected, it never disproves climate change. We have written about the strange absence of extreme weather more than once. One post that comes to mind was written by Bob Allen in December of 2014: “Global Warming Creates Extreme Weather that Doesn’t Exist.” And now, in the Fall of 2015, the lack of extreme weather is still continuing. As CNS News reports, “NOAA: Hurricane Drought Hits Record 119 Read more […]

Global Warming Makes Leaves Change Color in August

We know it must be global warming because everything in the weather is caused by global warming. Right? CBS Pittsburgh reports, “Experts: Record Cold Summer Leads To Changing Leaves in August.” Pittsburgh is dealing with one of the coldest summers in history and it’s having an effect on the trees. Friday morning temperatures fell into the 40s in Western Pennsylvania. Meteorologists say these cold temperatures are leading to trees changing colors in the middle of August. “This is extraordinary Read more […]

Hurricane Katrina and the Question of God’s Judgment

Do you remember the debates about whether the Katrina disaster was a judgment on New Orleans? Some on the religious right blamed the carnage on a scheduled gay rights parade. The left invoked an angry Gaia and her retributive global warming. But what if this was a judgment on something other than gays and internal combustion engines? What if it were a judgment on political corruption? Maybe it is in the very nature of reality that Providence, the normal processes and regularities of the natural Read more […]

CNN Money, IMF Blame “Freeze” for Exposing Unwarranted Optimism about U.S. Economy

Of course, they don’t admit that all their earlier economic predictions for 2014 were regime propaganda to get you to help stimulate the economy through delusional exuberance. No, no. The financial industry is full of objective and impartial witnesses who merely failed to predict… the weather. You can’t make this stuff up. We live in society dedicated to patching illusions no matter how many holes appear in them. CNN Money: “U.S. Economy: Not Looking So Good.” When it comes to the Read more […]

Giving New Meaning to “Climate Disruption” — Disrupting Marriages?

If you ask the White House, every single American problem and crisis of the past six years has been the fault of George W. Bush. From the economy to the heartbreak of psoriasis (that would be a health care issue, of course), Ol’ Dubya has been pilloried as the root cause of virtually every negative event in our society. Recognizing that the expiration date for that excuse is nigh, and–though the Administration continues to demonstrate they’re not done using it–we need to discover a new justification Read more […]

If Storms Are Evidence of Climate Change Then What Are No Storms Evidence For?

We are constantly told that climate change is causing more severe weather. When a typhoon hit the Philippines causing major damage, many treated it as a sure sign that global warming was affecting the earth. But if severe weather is a sign of “climate disruption,” then what is the meaning of a record lull in severe weather? Back in December, I wrote about a New York Post story claiming that hurricane season had been amazingly calm this season. I now consider that story confirmed by the Read more […]

But These Are The People We Should Trust When They Predict Global Warming?

We get their mockery and their in-your-face wastefulness, but do they know what they are talking about? How many times do the global warmists get to make false predictions before we’re allowed to stop listening to them? Bloomberg Businessweek reports, “ Surprised by how tough this winter has been? You’re in good company: Last fall the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that temperatures would be above normal from November through January Read more […]

Global Warming Fundamentalists Will Not Let Freezing Evidence Shake Their Faith

Chris Mooney is working hard at Slate and HuffPo to convince readers that no mere winter storm polar vertex thing should shake their faith in Global Warming, nor any other instance of climate change scientists behaving like idiots.. Like most believers caught in a lie, he basically doubles down on arrogance and sneering. This works because he has chosen Donald Trump as his target (mentioning a few others after him), and most people assume that it is OK to feel intellectually superior to Trump. Read more […]

God’s Beneficence and Man’s Arrogance

With the clean-up effort just beginning after Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey, many attempts at returning to “normalcy” are being complicated by long lines, high demand, and short supply. Tempers are flaring and looters are out in full force, looking to turn a bad situation into a quick profit. With his regular schedule on temporary hold, one writer in the area took to writing a short theology of weather, or more specifically, what he referred to as “A Jewish View of Hurricanes.” Not Read more […]
