Guess Global Warming Goes Back to 1755

That was the year of the great Lisbon Earthquake.

Eve Ensler tells Joy Behar that tsunamis and earthquakes help prove global warming.

  1. Well Dan, it goes back to whenever we started pulling out of the Mini Ice Age. When was that? 1650? 1700? 1750? 1800?

  2. (but I know your point is about the idiocy of tying it to earthquakes ;-) )

  3. but sweetie there’s a difference between climate and weather, don’t you think ?!

    it boggles my mind why this scientific topic is now partisan, with people so cocksure their side is just the right one, because they can come up with the best one-liners. let’s let the experts do their job (though i’m not advocating blind acquiescence either).

    i sincerely don’t understand why you (or any other political pundit, by the way) spend as much time on this, particularly (and forgive me if this sounds belittling) if they’re not a climatologist and not even a scientist.

    i think it undermines your credibility on things you actually master quite well, if you willingly and repetitively talk about things you don’t know about.

    did you know that vancouver, just in time for the winter olympics, is lacking snow now? does that in itself say anything about climate change? the answer is no, just like having a blizzard in february in the mid-atlantic states.

    now if you were to talk about federal spending on nasa or the national weather service, now that’d be an appropriate topic, in my humble opinion.

  4. “This new learning amazes me, Ms. Ensler! Explain again how sheep’s bladders may be employed to prevent global warming…”

    Simple: Kyoto, economic sanctions, Carbon Credits, “settled science” via consensus, Chicken Little Global Warming Campaign, etc……

    i sincerely don’t understand why you (or any other political pundit, by the way) spend as much time on this

    Suppose the data didn’t keep showing up cooked or taken off of Bazooka Bubble Gum wrappers.

    let’s let the experts do their job (though i’m not advocating blind acquiescence either)

    Now there’s a thread leading to evidence of sanity: ” i’m not advocating blind acquiescence either.”

    We live in a world where we do not bridge the gap on energy independence, even though we have the ability to do so; we legislate twisty light bulbs instead. Intelligent and necessary conservation and stewardship of the land has become political theater for professional cry babies to go well past sanity to protect rare snail snot.

    Ask the AGW advocates. They did it, by (1) pushing AGW as “proven” long before it was ready, (2) using it as a stick to push their partisan, socialist, growth-of-government agenda. We, the People are merely defending ourselves from that.

  7. Honorary Brigade Mom of the Arctic Wolves, serving from Fort Wainwright Alaska, who served in Iraq, including Track Palin.

    She is drawing the Media Fire while the rest of us reconnoiter.

    Happy Birthday Sarah Palin, “Happiness Is A Warm Gun Momma”

  8. Wow! The Earth’s crust is so delicate that minute changes in the atmosphere can trigger earthquakes. Who knew before now?

    But I really love this comment from Behar:

    Every scientist at every note believes in it but Sarah Palin doesn’t believe in it.

    What exactly are the “notes” to which she refers? Anyway, the comment is false. And notice how Behar seems blissfully unaware of all the recent scandals surrounding the global warming crowd. But that figures since she obviously keeps her head where then sun never shines.

    Because leftists are using it as a cudgel to force a socialist economic order on society. We even have Technology Czar John Holdren admitting that “Climate Change” represents an opportunity to redistribute wealth from rich countries to poor countries.

  10. I found this great graphic this morning about the effects of El Nino in Canada: http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/el_nino-winter-pattern.jpg

    El Nino is a weather phenomenon which has existed for several hundred MILLION years.

    No snow in Vancouver? Guess what- it is just ONE ski mountain that was selected for the Olypmics, which is suffering Normal weather. Nearby slopes for the Olympics are BURIED. One of them has 40 feet of snow down.

    ‘man-made’ global warming, gore’s a$$

  11. Yep. No snow in Vancouver is Normal. The city is in the Marine West Coast Climate Zone, which produces less snow because of warm air brought in by the Pacific. See Here.
