Alarmist’s last gasp…”When Prophecies Fail”

Warmist heads are exploding – More examples of cognitive dissonance or outright lies

By Joseph D’Aleo, CCM, ALS Fellow

Back in June I commented:

Several people have asked whether there seems to be a concerted effort to restart the public�s wise, rapidly dwindling concern about man-made global warming. The answer is a big yes. This behavior was predicted by Leon Festinger in his book about cultism “When Prophecies Fail” back in the 1950s. Expect the level of rhetoric and anger and a stream of garbage reports along with attacks on skeptics to increase. The public should rise up against the co-conspirators in the media, academia and government who attempting to increase their power and control over all our lives through the BIG LIE.

As further proof of their guilt, see how the board of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has issued a statement demanding that all attacks on global warming advocates cease. Sorry boys, we are just warming up (no pun intended). Joe Romm was just voted a fellow of the AAAS which should speak volumes.

Climate Change Skeptics United at the annual Heartland Conference. Heartland Institute communications director Jim Lakely said it�s a “myth” that only skeptics are invited to the conference.  President of the Pacific Institute, Peter Gleick, a lightweight scientist who supports the findings behind man-induced climate change, said he wouldn�t consider attending.

“I go to many meetings as it is, and the interesting science is being done elsewhere,” he said on a “pre-buttal” conference call hosted by the Center For American Progress. “This is not a science conference, it’s a political conference.  It’s a way for a small community – and I would argue a diminishing community – to get together in a self-support kind of way. There is no science that’s going to be discussed there that’s new or that’s interesting … it’s just not worth a real scientist�s time.”

So Peter then you had no reason not to attend.  The Center for American Progress with lefty extremists Joe Romm and John Podesta and funded by George Soros is not a politically driven organization?  Pleeeze.

Then Al Gore went on a rant about skeptics� calling all alternative natural factors ‘bullshit’.  He may not know much at all about climate, but he is a bullshit expert as the UK court found.  He went on a follow up interview comparing skepticism to racism.

Al Gore, John Podesta and Joe Romm have been playing the extreme weather game. With one after another inconvenient fact keeps invalidating their theory and models like global temperatures declining for a decade, US winter cooling at an alarming 4.13F/decade rate, sea levels actually falling instead of accelerating, and ocean heat content in the tropics where the climate models say the heat is being stored show no trend for 32 years, they divert your attention on the extreme weather – the record cold, record snow, tornadoes, floods and droughts and even hurricanes as proof that CO2 was causing climate disruption. Each of which are signs of a cooling earth.

And another George Soros mouthpiece, pseudo climatologist Heidi Cullen of Soros supported Climate Central says the billion dollar storms this year are certain proof of a warming world (even if the earth is really cooling).

A real climatologist would know super La Ninas and a slumbering sun lead to rapid global cooling result in bitter winter cold, heavy winter snows, spring snowmelt and storm flooding, drought in the southern plains, tornadoes in the Ohio Valley and south in spring, summer heat waves and late summer and fall hurricanes.  In fact we used these natural drivers to predict every one of the extreme threats. No CO2 need apply.

And importantly to drive another nail in the AGW coffin as the Washington Times reported: “It turns out the sun’s cosmic rays play a commanding role in atmospheric cloud formation and thus surface temperatures. This is according to research in the Aug. 25 edition of the journal Nature by scientists at the prestigious CERN particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. In a CLOUD (Cosmics Leaving Outdoor Droplets) experiment, specialists fired a beam of energy from the lab’s Proton Synchrotron accelerator into a chamber filled with gases that approximated the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere.

The findings are a strong indication that cosmic rays striking the planet have a similar effect on atmospheric chemicals and stimulate the creation of clouds. For dogmatists who believe humans are heating the earth by allowing so-called “greenhouse gases” to billow into the atmosphere, countervailing evidence indicating the sun plays a primary role in climate change is a faith-shaker. This is akin to saying “God is dead”. Don’t expect Gore, Romm or Podesta or Cullen to acknowledge what the honest scientists have found.

Watch the level of rhetoric rise further as the alarmists try and protect their lottery winnings and the greens push harder to get their agenda through before the public gives up on hope and change and opts for the right change and sensible economic and energy policy alternatives. 

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.
