Wow, it’s only been nine days since my last Global Warming Update, and here we have another update on the warming of the globe: Threat of Man-made Global Warming Exaggerated. Who could have believed that those lofty scientists would skew so much data to get the government moving in an anti-capitalist way are now being seen for what they are? Basically liars so that they could gain some attention, funding and a false sense of power.
Again, more truth coming out against those global-warming alarmist…Remember those pictures of polar bears on glaciers that were dying because there was no longer any ice at the north pole, thereby showing us how wicked we were for destroying the planet?
Seems the main research to make those claims is being investigated for the integrity of his report.
A leading climate scientist whose report in 2006 of drowning polar bears in Arctic waters galvanized the global warming movement — and was highlighted in Al Gore’s Oscar-winning climate-change documentary — has been suspended, possibly over the accuracy of his observations.
Charles Monnett — who manages as much as $50 million worth of climate research on Arctic wildlife and ecology — was told on July 18 that he was being put on leave pending an investigation into “integrity issues,” according to a letter posted online by the advocacy group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), which is questioning Monnett’s suspension.
It doesn’t take a scientist to see that there is a great deal at stake here for the scientist. He has $50 million in research fund to handle. That is a lot of money to be lost, and he should lose his job if the allegations are proven to be true. What is even more interesting is the actual account that led to the false belief that polar bears were dying due to a lack of ice.
Michael Browich, the director of BOEMRE, told his staff by email Friday that the suspension was unrelated to the 2006, AP reported, though he would not clarify what information the group sought. Documents provided by PEER seem to contradict that.
They indicate investigators are focusing on observations that Monnett and fellow researcher Jeffrey Gleason made in 2004, while conducting an aerial survey of bowhead whales. The report said they observed four dead polar bears floating in Arctic waters after a storm. They detailed their observations in an article published two years later in the journal Polar Biology; presentations also were given at scientific gatherings.
In the peer-reviewed article, the researchers said they were reporting, to the best of their knowledge, the first observations of polar bears floating dead offshore and presumed drowned while apparently swimming long distances in open water — suggesting “that drowning-related deaths of polar bears may increase in the future if the observed trend of regression of pack ice and/or longer open water periods continues.”
The article and presentations drew national attention and helped make the polar bear something of a poster child for the global warming movement. Al Gore’s mention of the polar bear in his documentary on climate change, “An Inconvenient Truth,” came up during investigators’ questioning of Gleason in January.
In May 2008, the U.S. classified the polar bear as a threatened species, the first with its survival at risk due to global warming.
According to a transcription of a February 23 interview, investigator Eric May asked Gleason his thoughts on Gore referencing the dead polar bears. Gleason said none of the polar bear papers he has written or co-authored has said “anything really” about global warming.
If that is the case, he should have stepped up and confronted Al Gore on the assumptions Gore made. Yes, Gore made a lot of assumptions. Please allow me to say… this really is an inconvenient truth for the global-warming crowd.

It has been a long time since I’ve done a global warming update. I think that is because it’s slowly becoming realized that these global-warming alarmist are nothing more than… anti-capitalist disguised as environmentalist. (Was that a redundancy?) My point has always been that God, the omniscient God of the universe, had designed the planet to handle all the carbon dioxide emissions man can produce. He knew that we would have SUV’s some day and designed the planet to handle it. The latest study from NASA is proving that the earth is doing just that concerning the warming of the planet:
NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.
Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA’s Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.
“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.”
In addition to finding that far less heat is being trapped than alarmist computer models have predicted, the NASA satellite data show the atmosphere begins shedding heat into space long before United Nations computer models predicted.
The new findings are extremely important and should dramatically alter the global warming debate.
Scientists on all sides of the global warming debate are in general agreement about how much heat is being directly trapped by human emissions of carbon dioxide (the answer is “not much”). However, the single most important issue in the global warming debate is whether carbon dioxide emissions will indirectly trap far more heat by causing large increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds. Alarmist computer models assume human carbon dioxide emissions indirectly cause substantial increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds (each of which are very effective at trapping heat), but real-world data have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the alarmist computer models have predicted.
The point being that the more we know about the planet, the more we see God’s wonderful design. Not that we should abuse the planet. I never argue for that. We are to be good stewards of all that God has given us. I just don’t buy into the argument that we can destroy the planet. That is God’s job, and it’s called judgment day. Until then, the planet will keep on rolling through space just as God designed it to do.
Al Gore is still at it. He is trying to convince us that global warming is a real problem we must face today. His new tactic, like all those who still believe in this man-made religion, is that global warming is causing all of this extreme cold weather.
Remember, man-made global warming was also the cause of all the heat waves that we have experienced in the past 10 years, along with both the presence of hurricanes and the absence of hurricanes. Global warming advocates also feel that the presence of rain and the absence of rain is caused by man-made global warming. They are basically saying that if we have bad weather, or good weather, it is a result of man-made global warming.
This is what one should expect from those who deny the living and true God. AS Romans 1 indicates, they tend to replace the true God with a god of their own making, i.e., god of global warming, whom we must appease by taxing industry and banning the use of SUVs. (Who says the mythology of the Greeks no longer exist?)
The point is that Al Gore is a real dunderhead in his persistence of claiming bad weather is the result of man-made global warming. You can read about it here, where you will also find true climatologist commenting on the problem. Here is what the real scientist are saying:
“Gore’s statement actually indicates a deeper problem — lack of precise predictions,” said Dr. William M. Briggs, a statistician and climate scientist. His research shows that there are no increased weather problems because of global warming, Briggs told FoxNews.com.
“He’s saying that anything bad that happens must be because global warming caused it. Activists like Gore are great at identifying events after the fact as being caused by global warming, but terrible at predicting them beforehand,” Briggs said.
Meteorologist Art Horn agreed, noting the extensive history of devastating weather over the millennia — none of which he connects with global warming.
“If one actually studies the history of weather over the last 2,000 years, you see massive storms, amazing heat, brutal cold waves, devastating droughts, terrible floods and disastrous hurricanes — none caused by global warming,” he told FoxNews.com.
Al Gore wrote an article for the New York Time’s saying that while he made some mistakes, global warming was still real and that all this snow and cold weather was a result of global warming. Here is what one columnist had to say about his reappearance:
If hyperbole and chutzpah had a child, it would be the opening paragraph of Gore’s op-ed in Sunday’s New York Times. Gore surfaced from the global warming witness-protection program to opine that despite admissions of error and evidence of fraud by various agencies, we still face “an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”
Perhaps he’s trying to protect his investments as he knows them, for he is heavily involved in enterprises that deal with carbon offsets and green technology. If the case for climate change is shown to be demonstrably false, a lot of his green evaporates like moisture from the ocean.
Interestingly, it’s that moisture from the ocean that he uses to defend his failed hypothesis. The blizzards that have buried the Northeast, he writes, are proof of global warming because record evaporation due to warming is what produces record snows. Except that supporters of his theory not long ago argued exactly the opposite.
Follow the money when it comes to Al Gore. He’s not all that interested in the planet. He just wants more money so he can increase his own carbon footprint. That alone should cause everyone to be skeptical of this fraud. Gore should be tried for fraud… and now murder.
Did you hear about the couple that had a suicide pack because of global warming? They killed their children and themselves over the fraud that Gore has perpetrated. One of the babies actually survived. Read about here. This is truly sad. Gore, and his accomplices in the press, have generated so much fear over this fraud that one couple could no longer handle it and committed suicide. I really believe the best thing for all of us is to turn off the mainstream-media. They don’t care about what is true, but what sells their product. Gore and the press both wear the same harlot’s clothing.
We got to talking about Al Gore and global warming. She laughs at him because he has become such a fool. I even reminded her what God said about the seasons. He set the seasons in motion and said they would not cease (Genesis 8:22). This is why I don’t believe in global warming, or climate change as they are now trying to call it. God is the One who set all the seasons in motion and He promised us that it would never cease. So to say that we were going to have an eternal summer, as Gore was saying, is to go against God and what He has said.
Yes, I know all the scientist kept trying to confirm the data that supported this view. After all, it was consensus (which is not science). Now we have learned that much of the data was skewed in order to support the theory. What gets me is that people are still trying to support the notion of global warming/climate change. What bothers me more is when Christians try and support it, trying to be enlightened or acceptable to the GW crowd.
They are so busy trying to impress this GW crowd that they forget God’s word. God’s word is authoritative. I know that it is not a science book. But it still speaks to creation because it speaks of the Creator. He has told us He made the world, the heavens and everything in them and He gave all of creation order. Summer will follow spring, spring will follow winter, winter will follow fall, and fall will follow summer. That is the order that He put into motion and there is nothing piddly man can do to change that order. To think that we can is to delude ourselves into thinking we are gods. Yes, Al Gore probably does think he is a god, but mankind is not. We do not know more than the Creator. We cannot predict the future, or the future of the weather. Heck, most climatologist can barely predict weather for the week, much less for the next 20 to 30 years.
All of this GW stuff could have been avoided if we would just use “common sense.” The very sense that the GW crowd accuses us of avoiding. The sad reality is that the GW crowd are literally fools. They lack true wisdom for they deny God and His place in all things. Only by viewing the world, the data collected through the lens of the Creator will we have true knowledge. Otherwise, it will degenerate into a religion of myths and fables.
Please don’t feel sorry for the high priest Al Gore. He has made billions off the scam. He has his riches. But don’t be fooled by him either.
As for our snow day, it has turned into a snow weekend, and a snow Monday. No, we didn’t get any more snow. But all the snow keeps melting during the day, freezing at night, making the roads dangerous. So school was canceled for Friday and Monday, and church was canceled yesterday. It’s been a long weekend for us here.
Now, where is that carrot.
PS I took that picture yesterday. It one of the roads in my neighborhood.
SANTA FE, N.M. — Former astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who walked on the moon and once served New Mexico in the U.S. Senate, doesn’t believe that humans are causing global warming.
“I don’t think the human effect is significant compared to the natural effect,” said Schmitt, who is among 70 skeptics scheduled to speak next month at the International Conference on Climate Change in New York.
Schmitt contends that scientists “are being intimidated” if they disagree with the idea that burning fossil fuels has increased carbon dioxide levels, temperatures and sea levels.
“They’ve seen too many of their colleagues lose grant funding when they haven’t gone along with the so-called political consensus that we’re in a human-caused global warming,” Schmitt said.
In other words, you either believe in global warming if you are a scientist, or else!!! How scientific is that?
