What Global Warming?

Imagine reading this headline: Eating Rice Linked to Unemployment! The story describes how a random sample of the citizenry has been sampled and asked how much rice they eat and if they have recently lost their job. The conclusions show that the study has established a link between the consumption of rice and joblessness.

Of course, lots of people eat rice because it's relatively inexpensive. People of limited resources eat more of it than wealthy people. Just claiming that a "link" exists really doesn't say much about cause and effect. Eating rice every day will not make you lose your job.

With the debate on global warming we often hear about "links" to pollution, carbon dioxide and industrial emissions. Do these things really cause the climate to warm up? Given the dramatic boom in the Earth's population (6 billion) and our rapid industrialization and oil consumption it makes sense that our carbon emissions will climb any graph. No one will question that the world is a much more polluted place than it was in the past. But are these things causing the climate to get warmer? In fact, before we attempt to link these things we need to know... is the climate even getting warmer?

November and December of 2009 saw El Paso get snowfall before New England! The weather seems to be contradicting the paradigm we have neen taught about a warming planet. Who can you believe? I know, let's ask NASA. They should know. They have all those billion dollar satellites and decades of records. Right?
Under the FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) NASA has been asked to provide their data about the Earth's climate ahead of the US attending and signing on to the Copenhagen Conference of Global Warming. Much is at stake here because the US is primed to fork over huge amounts of our National treasury to lesser polluting, underdeveloped countries as part of our reparation for being one of the major polluters of the planet. Surprisingly (or maybe not), NASA has failed to turn over the data.

Mark Hess, public affairs director for the Goddard Space Flight Center which runs the GISS laboratory, said they are working on the FOIA request, though he couldn't say why they have taken so long.
"We're collecting the information and will respond with all the responsive relevant information to all of his requests. It's just a process you have to go through where you have to collect data that's responsive."
Since that was unproductive we went to soe other sources who supposedly got their information from NASA. They summarized the following facts which seem to shed doubt on the global warming trend:
  • The earth today is not the warmest it has ever been. Global temperatures were as much as 2 degrees centigrade warmer more than a few times including the Medieval and Roman Periods. (see the chart [above])
  • For most of the past 10,000 years the earth was warmer than today's temperatures.
  • 2000 years of global temperature data, note the current global warming starting in the mid 1700s, well before man started producing much CO2.
  • The warmest year ever recorded in the USA was 1934, link. The coldest, in the mid 1970s, a period when some scientists and most of the press said the earth was heading toward global cooling if not a return of glaciation.
  • Five of the ten warmest years since 1900 were before 1940!
  • The warmest decade was the 1930s
  • US temperatures have only risen 0.2 degrees F from 1940!
  • 24 of the 50 US States had their highest ever recorded temperature in the 1930s. Five of the ten warmest years since 1900 were before 1940!
Hmmm. What's up with this?

Editorial by Andrew Benjamin
No question about it. Global Warming will occur during our lifetime, maybe even next week, though the most reliable forecasts give us up to eighteen months to prepare for the calamity of Greenland melting and dumping all its ice and water on Amagansett. One of the most reliable Democrat scientist, Al Gore, predicted Global Warming to arrive precisely on New Years; Eve 2009! The first signs will be a heavy snowfall and the uncontrollable shedding of tears in The White House. Future Vice President Al Gore will take over and make a speech on TV that begins: "Fellow Americans. My New Year's pledge is to go an a diet to stop my fat thighs from rubbing together causing more Global Warming... I used up all my energy credits..."
There are several solutions to deal with climate change for East Enders.
First, set up barriers like concrete levies that will surround the entire East End. These will be at least thirty feet high and will block the ocean views of our wealthier resident who have large mansions facing Great Britain that can be seen in the distance on a clear day. One beautification solution would be to invite the artists from the ghettoes in the South Bronx to paint creative graffiti all along the insides of these walls facing these mansions. Perhaps scenes of ocean waves crashing on shore will do. Other walls can display large portraits of Jacques Chirac.

My second suggestion is to place massive pontoons under the entire East End, under the sandbar itself, and when the flood arrives the whole of the Hamptons will rise with the water. Now if the sand on which our homes have been built on collapsed, heavy netting between the pontoons can capture the residences that will hang in mid air over the ocean until the water recedes; just before the next Ice Age cometh, this period is otherwise known as "Global Cooling." It may take a few million years to arrive, glaciers and all, but the time it takes the glaciers to melt will give us enough time to think of something. The next Global Warming perhaps?
The third solution, admittedly not as reasonable as the first two, would be to drop a few nuclear bombs on Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts to create a large cavity in North America, alike a huge bathtub into which the melting water from Greenland and the North Pole can drain. I wonder why Alec Baldwin never thought of that? Anyhow, I never liked the people and politicians who rule in those states (John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Paul Dukakis), nor its people who are America-hating Tories with their allegiance to Europe. In other words, I don't think they are real Americans at all, so no lives will be lost.

I am aware that Christy Brinkley will march on City Hall with all the Democrats in tow who want to stop people from using their cars or heat their homes, maybe even dragging Alec on a leash to protest the unavoidable nuclear dust that might settle in populated areas from "nuculear" bombs having been dropped on Connecticut, Maine, Mass and its anti-American Tories. I say, "No taxation without representation!"

Christy, Alec, relax. No one cares about Canada. I mean, do you? Especially the eastern part which is French. As for the western part: they are just a gigantic coal mine we'll tap into when the oil runs out. Moreover, the prevailing winds at certain times of the year will always travel northeast, taking the pollution out to, guess where? Greenland and the North Pole. By the time the pollution gets there neither place will exist and you won't have to worry about the polar bears.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
