UN Secretary on Climate Change

Posted By Dave Snope

"Climate change is accelerating ", LOL. Is he the only man on earth that hasn't seen The Pause, regardless of what one blames the cause of the pause on?

"ow-lying islands of the Pacific threatened by rising seas ", LOL. He must have missed several recent published research studies that show that most islands are growing or stable.**

"Let us join forces to push back against skeptics". Of course, by all means, silence the detractors, shout down the ethical scientists, cut off their funding, and completely ignore that every single prediction of global warming and it's catastrophic effects has been wrong and only the skeptics have been right.

** For example:
Climate scientists have expressed surprise at findings that many low-lying Pacific islands are growing, not sinking.

Islands in Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia are among those which have grown, largely due to coral debris, land reclamation and sediment.

The findings, published in the journal Global and Planetary Change, were gathered by comparing changes to 27 Pacific islands over the last 20 to 60 years using historical aerial photos and satellite images.

Auckland University's Associate Professor Paul Kench, a member of the team of scientists, says the results challenge the view that Pacific islands are sinking due to rising sea levels associated with climate change.

"Eighty per cent of the islands we've looked at have either remained about the same or, in fact, gotten larger," he says.

"Some of those islands have gotten dramatically larger, by 20% or 30%.

Boots On The Ground...

Posted By Dave Snope

Obama stepped up with boots on the ground for ebola, though. 2000 soldiers to fight a disease in Africa. I wonder what those soldiers think about that.

This Makes More Sense...

Yeah but, I'll bet that our ObamaMD will win the Nobel Prize In Medicine for his decisive action to stop the dread disease ebola by appointing a lawyer lobbyist who was the clown Joe Biden's Chief of Staff as the "Ebola Czar".

Lawyers should run everything, right?

Most Dangerous

He's skated with complete control over the press for six years. The press let him walk over over them and danced to his tune like performing poodles.

The fact that they've taken until now to starting opening one critical eye towards him is unforgivable. He's just so obviously corrupt that they finally have to say something, and now that his weakness and downslide is irreversible they feel bold enough to come out of the closet just a little.
