Climate Change Alarmists Looking to Murder Homeless Babies

Six Deaths Tied To Frigid Temperatures, Extreme Cold Felt From The Dakotas To New England - CBS News

If you try to stop global warming, you'll just end up killing all of the poor homeless people, and their babies....and those who go homicidal without their Starbucks in the morning.

POLITICIZATION OF SCIENCE HAS AN EAR IN NEW CONGRESS

In an effort to address political interference in climate change research, Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and vocal defender of federal scientists, has already convened a committee hearing to investigate reports of political interference with the reporting of scientific findings on climate change by federal scientists. Witnesses included Drew Shindell from NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies; Rick Piltz, a former senior associate, U.S. Climate Change Science Program; Francesca Grifo, Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS); Roger Pielke, Jr., professor of environmental studies at the University of Colorado and environmental sciences fellow, Cooperative Institute for Research.

Ms. Grifo testified that the UCS questioned nearly 2,000 federal scientists and according to the final report, released the same day as the hearing, 44% of Fish and Wildlife Service scientists were requested, “to refrain from making findings that would protect a species.” Additionally, 150 federal climate scientists stated they were subjected to political interference in the previous five years (report details may be found at: 404. Other instances of interference were recounted by each of the witnesses.

Representative Brad Miller (D-NC), chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the House Committee on Science and Technology, also intends to look into reports of political interference in scientific research. Chairman Miller indicated that he has a backlog of nearly one hundred tips and complaints not previously covered in the press. Tips and complaints were recorded through a “tip line” found on the committee’s website.

Information from the hearing, including witness testimony and opening statements is available at: Committee Holds Hearing on Political Influence on Government Climate Change Scientists :: Committee on Oversight and Government Reform :: United States House of Representatives.

The nature of global warming is still open to scientific explanation.

‘Blame cosmic rays not CO2 for warming up the planet’
Lewis Smith, Environment Reporter
Times (London)

The impact of cosmic rays on the climate could be greater than scientists suspect after experiments showed they may have a pivotal role in cloud formation.

Researchers have managed to replicate the effect of cosmic rays on the aerosols in the atmosphere that help to create clouds. Henrik Svensmark, a weather scientist in Denmark, said the experiments suggested that man’s influence on global warming might be rather less than was supposed by the bulk of scientific opinion.

Cosmic rays — radiation, or particles of energy, from stars, which bombard the Earth — can create electrically charged ions in the atmosphere that act as a magnet for water vapour, causing clouds to form.

Dr Svensmark suggests that the Sun, at a historically high level of activity, is deflecting many of the cosmic rays away from Earth and thus reducing the cloud cover.

Clouds reflect the Sun’s rays back into space and are considered to have an important cooling effect. However, if during periods of high activity the Sun’s magnetic field pushes a greater proportion of cosmic rays away from the Earth, fewer clouds will form.

The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society, concentrates on how ions are created and behave in the atmosphere when cosmic rays from stars hit it.

Cosmic rays were replicated by the use of ultraviolet light that were turned on and off in both short bursts and long exposures to create ions. The researchers found that the presence of ions encouraged the formation of clusters of molecules.

In the atmosphere these clusters of ozone, sulphur dioxide and water are understood to act as aerosols in attracting water vapour, culminating in the formation of clouds.

The number of clusters, according to the report, is proportionate to the number of ions present, which in turn depends on the frequency of cosmic rays reaching the Earth.

“The experiment indicates that ions play a role in nucleating new particles in the atmosphere and that the rate of production is sensitive to the rate of ion density,” the report concluded. “One might expect to find a relationship between ionisation and cloud properties. This feature seems to be consistent with the present work.”

The report added that the ions were likely to generate a reservoir of clusters of aerosol molecules in the atmosphere that “are important for nucleation processes in the atmosphere and ultimately cloud formation”.

The findings are unlikely to change radically the views of mainstream climatologists. Nevertheless, a team of scientists will shortly begin a larger experiment at a particle accelerator in Europe in the hope of learning more about the effects of cosmic rays on cloud cover.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, by far the biggest influence on climate change is the level of greenhouse gases released by mankind, largely through the use of fossil fuels.

Peter Stott, of the Met Office’s Hadley Centre and one of Britain’s leading climate scientists, said that Dr Svensmark’s theory should be taken “with a cellar of salt”. Small, localised effects on cloud formation might be possible but he dismissed the suggestion of cosmic rays being responsible for global warming.

There you go again . . . (shaking his head) . . . data that doesn't support the known fact that Bush caused global warming will not be tolerated in this forum . . . you deserve what you get.

I am shocked that career government employees would find that what is needed is more money for themselves, and more democrats in power to give them that money.

Gee. No chance of self-serving bias there.



They report that they want more money, and the media RUNS with it.

The idea that the Sun has anything to do with warmth is right-wing christian hate-think.

That kind of bad-speech does not support the glorious crusade to undermine a way of life that liberals don't like.

It is therefore not even up for discussion any longer. What we need are higher taxes so we can give more money to government workers.
