Arizona Looks to Outlaw Global Warming Legislation
The irony of this is that Arizona is the warmest state in the Union. I would've thought that North Dakota would be the first state to launch such an effort. Can you imagine how utterly ridiculous Al Gore's
fear-mongering about global "warming" must sound to the citizens of that

A San Francisco-based scientist says that current solar activity strongly indicates that the earth is on the verge of a new ice age.
"Sorry to ruin the fun, but an ice age cometh," warns Phil Chapman writing in The Australian. Chapman is a geophysicist and astronautical engineer who was the first Australian to become a NASA astronaut.
"The scariest photo I have seen . . . is at www.spaceweather.com
, where you will find a real-time image of the sun from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory [SOHO], located in deep space at the equilibrium point between solar and terrestrial gravity," Chapman wrote, adding ominously that "what is scary about the picture is that there is only one tiny sunspot."
"This is where SOHO comes in," he explained. "The sunspot number follows a cycle of somewhat variable length, averaging 11 years. The most recent minimum was in March last year. The new cycle, No. 24, was supposed to start soon after that, with a gradual build-up in sunspot numbers."
That, he writes did not happen. "The first sunspot appeared in January this year and lasted only two days. A tiny spot appeared last Monday but vanished within 24 hours. Another little spot appeared this Monday. Pray that there will be many more, and soon."
Why? According to Chapman "there is a close correlation between variations in the sunspot cycle and earth's climate. The previous time a cycle was delayed like this was in the Dalton Minimum, an especially cold period that lasted several decades from 1790. Northern winters became ferocious: in particular, the rout of Napoleon's Grand Army during the retreat from Moscow in 1812 was at least partly due to the lack of sunspots."
Although the rapid temperature decline in 2007 coincided with the failure of cycle No. 24 to begin on schedule is not proof of a causal connection, Chapman warns that it is cause for concern.
"Disconcerting as it may be to true believers in global warming," he explains, "the average temperature on earth has remained steady or slowly declined during the past decade, despite the continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and now the global temperature is falling precipitously.

It was hailed as a breathtaking scientific discovery: two ancient skulls of an apparently primitive hominid, an ancestor of man. Dubbed "Piltdown man," (Eoanthropus dawsoni) it was unearthed in Britain in 1912 by Charles Dawson.
Here, excited scientists declared, was the long sought "missing link" part human, part ape, a primitive Brit sporting the noble brow of Homo sapiens and an ape's primitive jaw.
Here at last was proof that we are Bongo's evolutionary descendants. Science was agog. Sounding like Al Gore, gullible scientists assured the world that the science was settled. Darwinian evolutionary theory was a proven fact.
It took 41 years for the truth to emerge — Piltdown man was a scam. In 1953, the roof fell in: Piltdown man was not our ancestor; nor was it a case of mistaken identity. It was, as Richard Harter wrote in "The Bogus Bones Caper," a case of outright deliberate fraud.
We’d been had.
I thought of this old scam when I read this morning of a document being peddled by the Obama administration and touted by global warming alarmists. We are, this panic-ridden report produced by a bevy of 30 scientists on the payrolls of 13 Obama administration government agencies responsible for dealing with the effects of alleged climate change, facing unimaginable horrors as a result of global warming.
These climate hucksters pull no punches, providing what Suzanne Goldenberg of Britain's Guardian newspaper describes as " the most detailed picture to date of the worst case scenarios of rising sea levels and extreme weather events: floods in lower Manhattan; a quadrupling of heat waves deaths in Chicago; withering on the vineyards of California; the disappearance of wildflowers from the slopes of the Rockies; and the extinction of Alaska's wild polar bears in the next 75 years."
"Today's release," she writes, "is part of a carefully crafted strategy by the White House to help build public support for Obama's agenda and boost the prospects of a climate change bill now wending its way through Congress," the notorious "Cap and Trade" bill now in trouble because if enacted it would all but destroy the U.S. economy.
"It's a clarion call for immediate action," said Amanda Staudt, a climate scientist at the alarmist National Wildlife Federation which keeps warning us that the healthy and growing population of polar bears in the Arctic is somehow endangered and shrinking despite their record numbers.
Shrieks Staudt, "This report basically describes a state of emergency. It says we need to act quickly and decisively. Every state is going to be affected, and every sector of the economy."
Goldenberg writes, "For many Americans, the report released today, entitled ‘Global climate change impacts in the U.S.,’ provides the most tangible evidence of the economic costs of climate change — from the need to relocate airports in Alaska built on permafrost, to the increased need for pesticides in agriculture, to an electrical grid straining to meet the increased demand for air conditioning in summer and ageing sewer systems brought to bursting point by heavy run-off in 770 American cities and towns."
Wow! Scary, huh?
Well, not really. In order for all that nasty stuff to happen, the planet has to keep warming at an alarming rate. If we deal with climate change now, the report warns, "the average US temperature will rise 0.4C-1.83C (4-6.5F) by the end of this century." If we don't, "average temperatures could rise by about 2.1C-4.3C (7-11F) with catastrophic consequences for human health and the economy."
A lot of ifs, totally unsupported by reality.
Let's get this straight. The planet is not warming.
What warming there was stopped over 10 years ago. Moreover, it is now apparent that the proof that the planet was warming comes from largely from temperature readings which meteorologist Anthony Watts warns are unreliable.
He photographed and visually inspected 850 stations in the U.S. and extrapolated their findings globally and learned that fully 89 percent failed to meet the National Weather Service's location requirements.
Many of the locations, wrote Watts, "were located next to the exhaust fans of air conditioning units, surrounded by asphalt parking lots and roads, on blistering hot rooftops. And near sidewalks and buildings that absorb and radiate heat."
But let's not argue. The planet was warming since the end of the little ice age. It stopped in 1998, and over the past decade, it's been getting cooler.
In some places, a lot cooler.

Dec 10, 2008
Over 650 scientists have put their names to a US Senate Minority report that challenges the contention of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change that there is a scientific “consensus” on the causes of global warming.
Set to be released within the next 24 hours, the report features contributions from hundreds of prominent researchers, including current and former IPCC scientists, who are now speaking out in opposition of the UN’s stance on climate change.
The Senate report is an updated version of a 2007 release, with over 250 more names added, highlighting how widespread dissent continues to grow in the scientific community to the alleged “consensus” that the modern warming is primarily man-made and is a crisis.
In comparison, twelve times fewer - just 52 scientists - participated in the much touted IPCC Summary for Policymakers meeting in April 2007. Climate scientists allied with the IPCC were recently caught citing fake data to make the case that global warming is accelerating.
The new Senate report will feature new peer-reviewed scientific studies and analyses refuting man-made warming fears.
Of course the fact that the establishment likes to engage in regular mass public deception by claiming the debate about global warming is over and any dissent is tantamount to holocaust denial doesn’t bode well for potential media coverage of the report, unlike the ongoing UN climate conference in Poznan which is being lavished with endless media attention about the need for a global carbon tax to save the planet from the evils of plant food (CO2).
