Stuart Varney asks Morano if the tide is changing on “global warming” is there a “retreat” from warmists?
Morano: “The opposite may be happening. They are getting more extreme. We are going on almost 18 years with no global warming according to the latest satellite data. So now we have studies saying there will be an increase in rape, increase in barroom fights, increase vehicle thefts, and increase in prostitution and that there will be more airline turbulence.
They are getting more and more absurd tying everything to global warming — tying global warming to Ebola. Just the other day they are saying ISIS terrorist group was created by global warming because drought conditions helped created desperation which led to an extremist ideology. They just won’t stop, they just keep coming and coming with more absurd claims.”
Extreme weather failing to follow ‘global warming’ predictions: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Droughts, Floods, Wildfires, all see no trend or declining trends – Extreme weather at or near historic lows
Warmists criticize media for Ebola climate link! ‘The evidence is incredibly weak’ – ‘Newsweek and CNBC ran stories this week linking climate change to Ebola. I talked to 3 scientists who said ‘Nooope.’ – ‘Prematurely reporting on this link is harmful, they say, because it undermines good research that is being done on the growing link between global warming and other types of infectious diseases, such as malaria and cholera.’
CNBC: ‘Ebola outbreaks may become more frequent because of climate change, scientists have warned’ – Some scientists believe global warming—and the subsequent increase in extreme weather—could be a factor behind in the virus’s ascendance. “If you are going to get more severe dry spells followed by heavy rains that might lead to more outbreaks,” William Karesh, the executive vice-president for health and policy at the EcoHealth Alliance, told CNBC on Thursday.
British Medical Journal: ‘Climate Change Bigger Health Emergency Than Ebola’ – ‘Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions,’ said the editorial, written by the magazine’s editor in chief …
Writers in Nature declared heretics by RC for dissing the 2 °C “target”
Almost every religion likes to accumulate various superstitions, arbitrary meaningless answers to pretty much everything. The climate alarmist religion is doing it, too. One of the silliest superstitions that have been gradually incorporated into the religion of climate hysteria is the “2 °C climate target” – the idea that we are obliged to avoid the warming of the Earth by more than 2 °C above “pre-industrial levels” because otherwise the Mother Climate would show us Her anger.As far as I remember, I have never dedicated a blog post to this staggeringly stupid meme – I think that it’s only repeated by completely science-illiterate politicians (who love the idea that they will be responsible for the corresponding planning) and other laymen, not by people with some education in natural sciences. Well, as we were just shown, this amazing idiocy is actually parroted by some of the people who like to be called (natural) scientists, too.Anthony Watts reacted with a WOW when he read a Nature piece by the emeritus astrophysicist Charles Kennel and the political scientist David VictorDitch the 2 °C climate goal (full text, Nature)Kennel and Victor explain that the other climate alarmists should no longer mock themselves with this particular superstition. Many of their arguments are valid but the article is still written from the viewpoint of climate alarmists – the assumption is that there must still be some global climate problem and some other way to quantify this problem. So of course that I wouldn’t endorse this article as a whole.It turns out that even this modest proposal, to ditch a particular, excessively silly superstition, was found to be too much by someone who wants to be called a climate scientist, namely Stefan Rahmstorf:Limiting global warming to 2 °C – why Victor and Kennel are wrong (RealClimate.ORG)Let us look at some of the considerations – and some others, too.The 2 °C climate target is preposterous for many reasons, including:the total increase of the global mean temperature is ill-defined because the “pre-industrial temperature” wasn’t constant or well-defined by itself; the temperatures were changing centuries ago just like they are changing todayeven if the “pre-industrial temperature” were well-defined, the change of the temperature since those times (1750?) hasn’t been measured with the required sub-degree accuracyeven in the recent era when we do measure the global mean …
