Climate Change
Man-made climate change due to the "pollutant" carbon dioxide (CO2) will destroy civilization! We must take drastic measures to save the planet now! This has been the multi-decade international campaign of some scientists, Hollywood types, leftist politicians and the media, popularized by the 2006 documentary film with Al Gore, "An Inconvenient Truth". The upcoming 5th Assessment report [AR5] of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is being trumpeted as further proof (they are now 95% sure of man-made global warming). The Gray Area actually believes that humans are doing harm to the environment, but the facts don't support that climate change is affected by humans. This is not just from the 2009 "climategate" scandal, but a growing number of scientists also agree. This will come as heresy to the leftists who have built their belief systems or careers on this campaign, but it is nonetheless true - facts don't support the claim. The Global Warming Primer, Second Edition, by the NCPA provides counterpoints to the film's message. "The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas, exhaled at high concentrations by each of us, and a key component of the biosphere's life cycle. Plants do so much better with more CO2 that greenhouse operators often increase the CO2 concentrations by factors of three or four to get better growth. This is no surprise since plants and animals evolved when CO2 concentrations were about 10 times larger than they are today." The Earth has had cyclical weather patterns since its creation. Ice sheets covered and retreated around the globe four times. We are currently in the 5th warming cycle over the last 400,000 years, and it is the least severe, according to "The Big Picture" at There is scientific data ad-nausea-um on the subject of climate change at that site. So why the high volume messaging that man-made climate change exists - follow the money and the political advantage that comes from it. Government funding for academic research, growth of government bureaucracies, excuse for raising taxes, tax payer funded subsidies and a big lure for charitable donations. So, as you read the left and right positions on climate change below, remember, the truth is "petroleum saved the whales", "coal saved the forests" and "wealthier is healthier".

Getting real about the “meaning” of Hurricane Ian

from CFACT,

Without understanding all of the picture, and only being shown one side, you can not properly come to any conclusion as to what they may mean as far as climate goes—likely nothing at all. And as far as increased damage, it does not take a rocket scientist to understand if the GDP of Florida is 10-20 times higher than it was in 1960. A storm today will be more damaging without being meteorologically as powerful in its total realm.

The amazing power of Donna in 1960: At Tavernier, the fastest recorded mile was 120 mph which was the highest point on the dial. The anemometer needle held solid against the 120 mph pin for 45 minutes. That is sick. Florida in 1960 had 5 million people, and now 22.1 million. Its GDP is over 1.3 trillion while in 1960 it was less than 10% of that. Donna today may have been a half trillion dollar storm there. In the Carolinas and New England where Donna was still a major hurricane, we would add on multi-billions — perhaps what the estimate on Ian is for Florida now (60 billion). So we need some perspective when we hear so-called experts and pundits lamenting the extreme That is common sense, something that seems to be in short supply when trying to drive home an agenda. That Don Lemon, Amy Klobuchar, the View and a host of others having no idea, is apparent.
