Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
Now then, California had a drought. The pagans said this was the wrath of their gods.
From Nature on September 14, 2015:
California snowpack lowest in past 500 years
From the Guardian October 9, 2015:
Global warming is shrinking California’s critical snowpack
From KQED Science on February 8, 2016:
“I think this has been kind of a wake up call,” said Dan Cayan, who studies climate change at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the US Geological Survey.
“The last couple years were extraordinarily warm and I think to some extent those are models for what we might expect in the future,” he said.
Cayan says California’s snowpack has already shrunk by 10 percent on average since World War II, a trend that is likely to continue as the climate warms.
“By the end of the century, if we’re lucky, we’ll only lose half,” said Cayan. “And if we’re unlucky, we could lose more than that. We’re in an era of unprecedented changes.”
Wow, that sucks. Lowest in 500 years.
Say, what happened after the snowpack hit this low 500 years ago?
It built back up.
Amidst the angst-ridden media attention paid to President Donald Trump’s efforts to carry out his campaign promises to deemphasize the speculative dangers of climate change and focus federal efforts on the real problems people face today — including energy and jobs — the Interior Department (DOI) under new Secretary Ryan Zinke has quietly gone about implementing Trump’s vision.
DOI acted quickly to reduce federal interference with state wildlife management and energy development decisions and scale back the regulatory burden on energy production.
Just months removed from the violence and attacks on police by environmental extremists fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, state and federal officials are warning of similar, potentially catastrophic, attacks against another new pipeline between Oklahoma and Tennessee that enters service in the fall.
A report from the Department of Homeland Security, and Arkansas, Tennessee, and Oklahoma, warns of attacks from eco-terrorists to anti-government militia on the Diamond Pipeline project.
An expensive solar road project in Idaho can’t even power a microwave most days, according to the project’s energy data.
The Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways project generated an average of 0.62 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per day since it began publicly posting power data in late March. To put that in perspective, the average microwave or blow drier consumes about 1 kWh per day.
But it’s green!
The Heartland Institute’s 12th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-12) was a rousing success. This issue of Climate Change Weekly is devoted, with one important exception, to highlighting some of the research presented at the conference.
More than 300 scientists, economists, politicians, and other climate-realist fellow travelers attended and/or spoke at the event, with more than 7,000 others watching live online. While shedding light on new discoveries in the fields of climate science and environmental economics, ICCC-12 was really focused on how the election of Donald Trump as president changes the dynamics for making progress on shaping a rational response to climate concerns and the need for expanded energy use.
“Global expenditures to ‘stop global warming’ already exceeded $1.5 trillion a year in 2015, or approximately $4 billion a day,” says Joe Bast, president and CEO of the Heartland Institute. And the “progressives” who are leading the global warming alarmist campaign and promoting the climate hysteria, he charges, are doing so “not to protect the environment, but to wage war on capitalism.”
I mean it. Weren’t there jokes not a year or so back about Gore being so full of himself that he was actually thinking about making a sequel to “An Inconvenient
Lie Truth” even after nothing in it even came close to coming true?
The trailer for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” the second film in Al Gore’s franchise of climate change documentaries, depicts President Trump as an antagonist.
A sequel to a movie that is a proven fairy tale?
I guess the answer to the question actually is; Yes, he really is that stupid.
It’s clear now why Tipper couldn’t stand him anymore.
In 2015, President Barack Obama created the Clean Power Plan to slow climate disruption. It was the first action ever taken by the US government to cut “carbon pollution” from existing power plants.
Now remember, ever since the first Earth Day back in 1970, the crap-for-brains econutz have been squallering that we were only going to have a few years until it was too late to save Planet Earth.
Well Obama’s power-powergrab by executive order got executive ordered right back.
“Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool huh?”
