Once again, “science” exposes the blatant lies Obama is willing to deploy in order to push the climate change agenda.
And the mainstream media continues to let him get away with it, every time. Or more likely, they accept that an environmental lie is a justified one.
These are indeed Orwellian times.
Alaska’s fire season is now more than a month longer than it was in 1950. At one point this summer, more than 300 wildfires were burning at once. Southeast of here, in our Pacific Northwest, even the rainforest is on fire…this is a threat to many communities.
Whatever Obama says, the exact opposite is true. According to the BLM, Alaska’s largest forest fires occurred during the 1940’s and 1950’s
Forest fires decreased in Alaska after the end of the Little Ice Age
Despite high variability at interannual to decadal scales, larger trends occur at the centennial scale. A widespread trend found in dendrochronological studies across boreal Canada has been the decrease in fire frequency following the end of the Little Ice Age in the mid 19th century (Brassard and Chen 2006).
America’s largest fire occurred in the…

Slate Blames Manmade Warming For Recently Rising Seas, Even Though It’s Been Happening For CenturiesPosted: September 3, 2015
Sea level has risen over 300 feet, since the end of the last ice age 20,000 years ago. It will keep rising until we enter another ice-age.
The climate alarmist industry is shameless, and out of control. But they know most people won’t fact check “the science”, so their clickbait eco-hysteria works a treat on the vulnerable and gullible.

The seas are rising and Sandy-like storm surges are going to be a “new normal,” according to Slate.
Slate’s Bad Astronomy writer Phil Plait highlighted a NASA study that showed a rise in sea levels since 1992 in his Aug. 31 article. Repeated the fears of many climate alarmists, he blamed that rise on global warming and warned, “we’ll see beaches disappear, coastlines changed.”
The NASA study he cited showed an average sea level rise of 2.5 inches since 1992, with some localized rises of more than 9 inches. But in other places, including the northeast coast of the United States, sea levels had actually declined. Much of this localization sea level changes was attributed to ocean currents.
Plait blamed carbon dioxide-induced global warming for the rise in spite of the fact that rising sea levels are not a new phenomenon. In fact, it has…

Like the old sailors say, “The wind is free … but everything else costs money”.
Among the grab bag of lies pedalled by wind power outfits, and especially fan makers, is that these things will run on the smell of an oily rag, without the need of so much as a shifting spanner, for more than 25 years.
The pitch is made to beguile the gullible (read, ‘planning authorities’, ‘politicians’, ‘bankers’ and ‘investors’) into believing that the costs associated with operating these things, can be readily covered out of petty cash – which fits with the other great line about there being nothing as ‘free’ as the wind.
Mechanical wear and tear, including bearing failure is one of the most common reasons for turbines to be put out of action; and is one of the key factors that accounts for the fact that the ‘economic’ life of wind turbines is 10-12 years, which runs…

Yet another excellent example of how real world evidence (the science) is turned on its head to promote the activist climate agenda.
President Eisenhower warned America about the likes of Barack Obama in 1960 :
“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.”

Steve Milloy’s take on Obama’s Alaskan trip, which seems to have been a waste of time anyway:
President Obama’s hike up the rapidly melting Exit Glacier today has run into some unfortunate buzzkill: reality.
The hike is supposed to be the high point of this week’s trip to Alaska, undertaken for the purpose of dramatizing global warming. The media pitch is that Exit Glacier has been rapidly retreating for decades because of global warming.
Sadly for the President’s play acting, though, the National Park Service previously reported that Exit Glacier has been exiting since at least the early 1800s — before the Industrial Revolution even got underway.
This isn’t the only intrusion of reality into the President’s staged climate drama.
While the President made big news announcing that he was changing the name of Mt. McKinley to Denali, the irony is that multiple glaciers there are…
