Comments: So Hot, We'll Freeze to Death

Meanwhile, children are starving while people make up lies about global warming as a scam to steal billions from well-meaning, deceived people. But, of course, scam artists have never cared a thing about the real needs of human beings -they just want to lie, use scare tactics, and want their marks to "show them the money".

Great post. Thanks for your blog, Confed Yank.

Spot-on, CY

As I have said in the past, we should really wish that the AGW hypothesis was proven. If true, then climate engineering would be possible.

However, we do not know how to increase the greenhouse effect for the planet. So a true ice age will kill billions and cause vastly more problems than a trivial 2-4 C average temperature increase.

But Gore and Pachauri will still make their money off the AGW fraud...that is all that matters.

I knew the present AGW theory was a lie from the very beginning. Yes we are about to re-enter another ice age. Many will die. Unfortunately, everybody you have ever known is going to die, warm or cold. If we cannot limit our population, mother earth (nature) WILL. Human beings should be rare and beautiful flowers in the landscape rather than the plague they have become. They are magic and too much of a good thing corrupts the beauty. Those who survive may look fondly back at the profusion of glory that walked the earth. This is the Garden of Eden.

Laura,
I am afraid you have it wrong. You see, I order to get rid of global warming our government is arranging to tax us to a greater extent and give the money to developing countries like China, those in Africa and so on. That should significantly impact the environment.

Funny .. how "these climate scientists didn't see this cooling coming.

This information is false and misleading. It does not match up with the scientifically settled computer models that predict, with certainty, the temperatures will only rise.

So let AlGore say it, so let it be done.

Laura said "Meanwhile, children are starving while people make up lies about global warming as a scam"

Laura, the chief irritation is the attempt by the left to blame global warming on human contribution with absolutely no proof. That irritation turns into anger when people realize the Earth has had many ice ages and global warming periods in its long history, and the fact that the blind followers of the left are too intellectually lazy to research the subject.

Another point you liberals seem not to grasp is that global warming could provide more food production and help those starving children you're so concerned about.

I know you will find this hard to believe but I read this morning that this was excatly what the AGW data was predicting and that they are correct. They are saying that the data predicted this cooling and therefore their preditcion of warming in the future is correct also. These people are almost as arrogant as our leader.

I was wondering one day recently as I was freezing my behind off - wouldn't it be terribly IRONIC that all these years of cuting back "greenhouse gasses" and the wacko libs demanding we reduce carbon dioxide have the opposit effect - making the earth COLDER!!!!
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

iconoclast;

Actually it's easier to do geo-engineering to prevent Ice Ages than to cool the planet. All you need are big mirrors in orbit to increase overall insolation. Those are relatively cheap to build and deploy. There are a number of other schemes, simply look back to the 70s and 80s for the last Ice Age scare.

Fallen Angel by Jerry Pournelle. A fun read and some pretty decent science as well.

What is wrong with you people?

You spend years mocking environmentalists for believing that the climate is changing and the earth is warming up, because you believe the science is shoddy and most of it is simply hysteria.

And now it's all "we're gonna freeze to death" because of an article in the Daily Mail. But as you can see here

http://climateprogress.org/2010/01/11/foxnews-wattsupwiththat-climatedepot-daily-mail-article-on-global-cooling-mojib-latif/

That article is based on misquoting a number of scientists and organizations including Dr. Mojib Latif and the NSIDC.

Wise up. Jesus.

POCKMARK - I have no idea what you are talking about. Speaking for myself, I do not believe WE are freezing or warming the earth. Key word there is WE! WE can't do squat to control the earth - the WE is us human beings. That realllly big ball of hydrogen in the sky, along with that very hot molten steel in the center of the earth does the job - along with a couple of other things we can't control.
