Final Push For California Cap-N-Trade Extension Is About Money, Not Global Warming

Gov. Jerry Brown is racing to convince state lawmakers to extend California’s cap-and-trade program which puts a price on carbon emitted by polluters, including oil refineries like the Valero Benicia Refinery seen Wednesday, July 12, 2017, in Benicia, Calif. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)

There is one thing that is not up for discussion as Gov. Jerry Brown battles to win support for the extension of California’s cap-and-trade program: the flow of cap-and-trade funds to the bullet train.

“If that’s a killer for you, then you have a dead body,” Brown told this newspaper’s editorial board.

The governor is urgently pressing the Legislature to pass Assembly Bills 398 and 617, two bills that are the product of months of private negotiations to reauthorize the cap-and-trade program for an additional 10 years. It’s currently set to expire in 2020.

What’s the rush? Brown says the world is hurtling toward catastrophic climate change that will lead to 47 percent of the planet having temperatures of 130 or even 140 degrees, with suffering and migration that will destabilize the world. “It’s damn real,” he said.

For the sake of argument, let’s agree that climate change is happening, catastrophic and entirely our fault.

California accounts for only 1 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. We could shut down the entire state, turn off all the generators and shoot all the cows, and it would have absolutely no effect whatsoever on the global climate.

But the governor says California’s cap-and-trade program serves as a model for the world, inspiring other governments to adopt similar policies to reduce greenhouse gases.

The idea of cap and trade is that regulators place a statewide cap on greenhouse gas emissions and require permits for each ton of emissions that a facility produces. Some permits are given out at no charge, and the state holds back a large share of them to sell at quarterly auctions in order to raise revenue.

The revenue goes into the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, and the legislature spends the money on politically favored projects connected to the climate. The connection is sometimes thin.

As of January, according to the governor’s budget summary, $3.37 billion had been spent this way. Those billions of dollars were pulled from the pockets of people who were paying higher prices for everything manufactured or transported in California.

In 2016, the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office said cap and trade had added 11 cents to the price of a gallon of gasoline, 13 cents to the price of diesel. Earlier this year, the LAO estimated that if the cap-and-trade program is extended for 10 years, it will add 63 cents to the cost of a gallon of gas in 2021, rising to 73 cents in 2031.

With its higher cost of living, California’s poverty rate is 20.6 percent, the highest in the nation, and economic distress is evident. In May, state finance officials said sales-tax revenue came in far below expectations, likely because wages were lower. The governor’s January budget proposal said that over the past four years, “the percentage of wage and salary growth from high-wage sectors dropped from 50 percent to 36 percent of total growth.” Cap and trade began in 2012.

Is the cap-and-trade program contributing to the loss of high-paying industrial jobs in California?

There’s no time to think about it, because the vote to extend the program will probably happen on Monday, just one week after the bills were made public.

It’s about money, not climate. The governor’s budget summary says extending the program to 2030 will lessen volatility in the quarterly auctions and boost revenues. And then there’s the bullet train.

As of January, $800 million of cap-and-trade funds had been spent on high-speed rail. And in the rail authority’s 2016 business plan, there’s a letter to legislative leaders from the California High-Speed Rail Peer Review Group about the financing for the initial operating segment from San Jose to Wasco.

“Most important,” they write, is “the Authority’s ability to securitize cap-and-trade funding when needed in the future.”

Securitizing is the process of borrowing future revenues by selling bonds to investors. The longer the time period of guaranteed revenue, the more that can be borrowed.

“Extending the C&T program beyond 2020 and defining the Authority’s share of the proceeds is one potential way to achieve at least part of the funding objective,” the experts wrote.

The business plan says the first segment of the bullet train will need $5.3 billion in committed cap-and-trade funds, plus another $5.2 billion borrowed against future cap-and-trade revenues to be collected between 2025 and 2050.

But the cap-and-trade program expires in 2020.

Is it starting to make sense? The voters approved a bullet train that would be built without a tax increase and operated without a public subsidy. Cap-and-trade funds are not tax revenues, so they can be spent building high-speed rail forever.

A vote to extend the cap-and-trade program is a vote to fund the bullet train with ever-higher prices for food, gasoline, electricity and everything that’s made or moved in California.

That’s the real path to catastrophe.

Geoengineering Is The Primary Cause Of Global Climate Change, Not CO2

Nonstop Chemical Geoengineering Has Pushed the Planet into Climate Chaos

chemtrails22015 Set to be the Hottest on Record Because of the Intensified Chemtrail Operations Nationwide

Warmest December in memory was deliberately manufactured
to coincide with the historic U.N. Climate Conference in Paris  

State of the Nation

The world was warned by a military pilot member of Operation Indigo Skyfold.  “Blue Jay 1”, as he is known, revealed to the world community of nations that starting in January of 2015 the skies of the planet would see a considerable increase in the amount and intensity of chemtrail operations.

“All pilots on leave are required to report to their CO by Dec 15th for special training operations, to qualify for Indigo Phase 2 flights, expected to be initiated by January 21, 2015.”
(Source: OPERATION INDIGO SKYFOLD: The Most Secret Covert Black Operation In World History)

As indicated from the volumes of anecdotal evidence posted on the Internet, there is no question that the pilot whistle blower (Blue Jay 1) was absolutely right in his prediction.  The fact that 2015 has now gone on record as the hottest year in recorded history is also a testament to the overriding influence that chemical geoengineering has on planet Earth’s climate.  Particularly when chemical geoengineering is used in tandem with highly advanced HAARP technologies, out-of-season weather events and unseasonal climate calamities can be fabricated quite quickly and impressively.


The current global regime of chemical engineering has been intensified
considerably over the past 3 years since 2012.  Since January of 2015,
chemtrail operations have been conducted with extraordinary zeal.
Geoengineering the skies across the USA — 24/7 — has profoundly
altered the local weather patterns and normal climate trends nationwide.
2015 has seen a substantial uptick in chemtrailing operations everywhere,
as the sun rays are blocked and mold counts have increased dramatically.
The most significant consequence of this constant chemcloud cover and
acceleration of the hydrological cycle is the exacerbation of climate change.
The deliberate implementation of this worldwide climate engineering
agenda via coal ash-containing chemtrail aerosols* has greatly contributed
to every facet of Global Climate Change.


*U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails

Certainly the folks in New York City are surprised to be gallivanting around in shorts and tees during the holiday season, as are those who live in the nation’s capital.  What is particularly curious is that no one (with societal standing) throughout these bastions of intelligentsia and political power, respectively, has made the obvious correlation between the exceedingly high temps and the practically permanent state of chemclouded skies.

chemtrails-criss-crossHow is that so?  Don’t politicians and lobbyists, research scientists and academics ever look up at the sky?

If they did, they might see something like the preceding photo.

New World Order = One World Government = CO2 ‘Management’ Regime

There is actually a very good reason why no one ever from the establishment — political or scientific — ever talks about chemtrails or chemclouds in public.  They are strictly forbidden from even mentioning such a super-secret program that undergirds the New World Order (NWO) agenda to create a One World Government.  Hence, there is never any official word issued from government or weather reporting agencies despite their high level of awareness regarding the chemtrail aerosols sprayed overhead (as in directly over their heads).  Until now!

CRACKED! Top Climate Scientist Admits to Ongoing Geoengineering

Now that the geoengineers have sufficiently ramped up their spraying programs to create continuous cloud cover over vast swaths of the United States, Canada and beyond, they have conditioned the populace to believe that this is the new normal.  You know, it’s also called climate change.  Or Global Climate Change (GCC) when they want you to believe that this is an overarching planetary climate pattern directly caused by human activity, specifically anthropogenic CO2 generation.

Well, GGC certainly is caused by humanity, except most of any climate change is being purposefully geoengineered by the geoengineers.  They (NWO globalist cabal) have conveniently forgotten to mention that because of their fixation on CO2 production, and its calculated control.  Only by fastidiously controlling carbon inputs and outputs can a “Global Carbon Control Matrix” be put into place.  Because it is CO2 which must be strictly controlled in their New World Order, they already have designed a full-blown Global CO2 ‘Management’ Regime.

One World Government Initially Emerging As Global CO2 ‘Management’ Regime

MMS

There are many reasons why they intend to bring this misguided scheme to full fruition. It has nothing to doing with being good stewards of Mother Earth and everything to do with maintaining absolute dominion over every cubic inch of the biosphere.[1]  Some are even convinced that they are intent on destroying the biosphere.  Kind of like they have waged endless wars as a means of promoting disaster capitalism.

In this way they will use the profound and pervasive environmental destruction as an explanation for creating a whole new global economy based on carbon trades.  Carbon emission trading has already become the new biz with its carbon credits and carbon taxes and everything in between.  Carbon cap-and-trade schemes also run the gamut as do other corporate approaches to offset GHG reductions.  Of course, all of these carbon tricks of the trade are merely a pretext to super-regulate every aspect of the biosphere … staring with CO2.

What follows is a quote from the historic REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN which spells out their intentions with Agenda 21 and the Agenda 2030.

“GROSS POLLUTION of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass extinction by nuclear weapons as the principle threat to the survival of the species.”

The REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN (RFIM) is distinguished for many reasons; however, the key takeaway is that the NWO cabal that commissioned it has since implemented its recommendations.  The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development falls under the purview of the U.N. and is a perfect manifestation of the plan to foist a One World Government (OWG) onto the world community of nations.

This has been happening incrementally over several decades just as the same ruling cabal foisted the European Union on much of that continent.  Such an overarching worldwide plan can only be executed by a new global superstructure or One World Government.  In this fashion the administration of geoengineering programs will take place at a supranational level so that citizens and nation-states no longer have a say about any facet of their weather or general environment.

In fact the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and TPIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) are two integral initiatives which have significantly advanced the outright globalization of all land, water bodies and courses, and other natural resources.  Although neither agreement appears to provide such powers, they are only the first step at stripping sovereign nations like the USA of their constitutional rights and liberties.  Slowly but surely the goals of the RFIM are being fulfilled in ways that are both startling and totalitarian.

Chemical Geoengineering and Climate Change

What they have also forgotten to share with the human race is a crucial little factoid.  That fact concerns water vapor, which is by far the most plentiful of all the greenhouse gases (GHG).  The GHG, of course, are those which have been identified as the main contributors to climate change.  They chose CO2 for obvious reasons but then curiously ignore water vapor altogether.  Here is the list of the top 4 GHG from Wikipedia in descending order of amount and contribution:

Screen Shot 2015-12-26 at 4.05.24 PM

Now consider the following excerpt about water vapor.

Water Vapor
Water vapor tops the list of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The earth continuously produces water vapor, which evaporates and then goes up to the atmosphere. Clouds, fog, and haze are all part of water vapor, with steam being the main fossil fuel combustion byproduct. Steam from water comprises up to 70 percent of the total greenhouse effect.
(Source: Top 5 List of Greenhouse Gases)

What is truly critical to understand is that water vapor is the number 1 greenhouse gas.  In terms of total volume and total effect which directly impact the current global climate trends, water vapor far exceeds CO2.  More importantly the actual percentage of manmade CO2, also known as anthropogenic carbon, is a fraction of what is produced by the biosphere exclusive of the human race.

This discussion ought to seriously alarm any person who is involved in the raging global warming debate.  The reason: because if there really is a scientifically established trend of rising of temperatures globally, it is due to the massive increase in water vapor which is being generated from chemical geoengineering programs via chemtrail aerosols.  This particular source of the GHG water vapor is by far the greatest. It is also the easiest to control.  All they need to do is shut down all geoengineering programs until a new baseline can be determined across the whole range of GCC contributions factors.

Nonstop Chemical Geoengineering Has Become The New Normal

The globalists who are behind this unrivaled ruse have spent billions trying to convince humanity that their (each individual’s) carbon footprint is to blame for the climate chaos. No one denies that much more CO2 is generated by an industrial civilization. However, compared to the ongoing and incessant chemtrail operations conducted around the globe, the real anthropogenic culprit would be geoengineering, not industrial operations and/or energy consumption.  Although both industry and geoengineering are responsible for spewing enormous amounts of coal fly ash into the atmosphere.

maxresdefault2

Simply put, the rain events worldwide and global cloud cover have entered a whole new league ever since chemtrailing and chembombing have become such a common sky-polluting practices. The geoengineers have pushed the edge of the envelope with their atmospheric manipulation in ways that are now having a tremendous influence on worldwide weather patterns. The longer term climatological impacts are likewise being seen and felt as never before.

Because “chemical geoengineering has become the new normal” there can only be one disastrous result.  The world community of nations has been experiencing those weather calamities for many years now.  Each country has a tale of weather woe to report no matter where they are located.  Drought now routinely alternates with deluge, as do catastrophic wind storms whip up with greater frequency.  Each season — in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres — now brings freak weather events and unpredictable climate chaos so often that they are also the “new normal”.

Because the geoengineers are so determined to control the world’s climate, they have essentially been conducting a massive experiment with the entire biosphere.  Now that the delicate balance within Earth’s atmosphere has been upset for so many years, it is impossible to know what the climate would be like without all the artificial weather modification.  The now pervasive programs of ongoing chemtrail spraying are now so intense and unrelenting that 2016 promises to bring much more of the same climate chaos.

Hottest Year On Record Proves The Geoengineers Can Produce Global Climate Change

At the end of the day one firm conclusion will be drawn from the current geoengineering paradigm.  That any and all dramatic changes, which have been observed regarding global weather patterns, are directly attributed to the out-of-control chemical geoengineering regime that now overlays much of the planet.  That 2015 is shaping up to be the hottest year on record stands as a testament to this.

Although many refuse to admit that relentless geoengineering can in fact increase temperatures both regional and globally, this past fall and the current winter have proven the now obvious.  This deliberate manipulation of public opinion around global warming has only served to allow the geoengineers to maintain their fundamentally flawed paradigm.  In so doing they have been empowered to conduct an extremely dangerous experiment in which all of humanity now sits as does the now famous frog in his/her pot of soon-to-be-boiling hot water.

Many go so far as to deny that the glaciers have been melting at record rates all over the world. Just because they have disappeared because of geoengineering techniques doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. Soon the ambient ocean temps will be so out of whack that coastlines everywhere will be forever altered.  Since many residents of the world live near the shorelines, this development alone will continue to proceed with overwhelming effect.  Just like New York City was buffeted by Superstorm Sandy and Manila is blasted by one typhoon after another, other major megalopolises are likewise exposed to the ravages of geoengineered climate change.

Planet Earth is being systematically geoengineered into a slow-motion extinction level event.

Everyone has heard by now that if you tell a BIG enough lie enough times it will eventually become accepted as the gospel truth.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
— Joseph Goebbels: On the “Big Lie”

The two biggest lies that humankind is now facing on a daily basis are as follows:

• That CO2 generation from human activity is the primary cause of global climate change

• That organized chemical geoengineering programs do not exist and that all chemtrails are really contrails

Both of these highly consequential notions are being repeatedly misrepresented by governments and the mainstream media (MSM) alike.  Likewise the entire Military-Industrial Complex and related Fortune 1000 companies completely support this covert global endeavor of weather modification and climate engineering.  In fact the U.S. military has taken the lead role first in the execution of Operation Cloverleaf[2], and later on in the implementation of Operation Indigo Skyfold.  Both highly vetted Air Force and Navy pilots are primary personnel who fly the specially retrofitted airliner which emit the coal-ash based chemtrail aerosols.

Each of them is supported by every organ of government and provided with a prodigious amount of resources to maintain these outright lies.  The entire corporate sector has been likewise enlisted to maintain the unending coverup of both the blue skies and the conspiratorial plot–chemical geoengineering.  They have both been indefatigably assisted by the MSM at every turn in this ongoing Con of the Millennium!

The real problem with the ever-worsening planetary predicament is that eventually the biosphere will exceed critical points of no return.  Crucial breakpoints have already been observed which have caused ecosystems to collapse.  Isn’t that what continuous drought and regular deluge will do?  The once great state of California is a perfect example of what the other 49 states can expect.

Relentless Chemtrail Spraying and HAARP-manufactured weather events radically alter California’s climate

Because the true effects of geoengineering are so insidious and under-the-radar, the entire planet is literally being set up for a slow-motion ELE (extinction level event).  Only because an apocalyptic event has not yet occurred on the scale of the Great Flood or the “Sinking of Atlantis” do many blow off such speculation as the stuff of a fertile imagination overly influenced by Apocalypse consciousness.  However, the signs and omens now abound everywhere.  Harbingers of an environmental Armageddon show up uninvited everywhere and anywhere, especially by way of meteorological devastation.

All anyone has to do is look at their local weather, or tune into the national weather events. An even better barometer reading will come from a quick scan of the regional or global news reports concerning major weather events.  They now occur with such frequency that they cannot be ignored. As a matter of fact, if the historical weather records were carefully reviewed, the following conclusion would become clear.  That the number of deaths and amount of damage from weather-related events has seen a steady and often precipitous rise, especially since the implementation of the perpetual and purposeful geoengineering programs.

chm3-1

Conclusion

There is only one reason why the planetary civilization finds itself at the edge of the climatological precipice.  That reason:  Most of the people of the world are clueless about what is occurring right above their heads.  Many are willfully ignorant of the chemtrails; others are simply unaware and uninformed.  The continual government disinformation campaign has been so effective that many don’t even know what to think.  Then there is the small but vocal minority of truth-seekers who know exactly what is going on.

Hence, the only way forward is through a deliberate campaign of education and edification. The education piece clearly delineates the facts about geoengineering; the edification part explains the necessity of mobilizing around the urgent need to terminate the chemtrails post-haste.  When most people come to understand that the hazardous waste product from coal-fired power plants — coal fly ash — is the main ingredient in chemtrails, they will join this movement—yesterday!

Peer-Reviewed, Court-Admissible, Scientific Research Paper Published Exposing Geoengineering and Coal Fly Ash

Truly, if ever there was a plot to commit genocide against the whole human race, the present system of ever-intensifying chemical geoengineering programs is it.  Therefore, the people must be made aware and motivated to respond accordingly.  After all, no one likes toxic chemicals  being sprayed on them all day long for years on end.  Nor does anyone like the blue skies being unceasingly polluted, particularly when the pollution becomes so dense the sun rays are forever blocked.

Who, pray tell, wants their sunny days stolen from them week after week … only to be replaced with days of toxic chemtrail drizzle?

Author’s Note

The REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN (RFIM) should not be underestimated for it clearly outlines the future of the New World Order.  Both U.N. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are manifestations of the basic game plan recommended by the RFIM.  Therefore, this is a very good place for many to start.  The following link provides an important essay which breaks down the whole NWO strategy to corral the human race into a pen of fear and apprehension about the future viability of the biosphere.

Editor’s Note

Many people are now aware of the major scams being run daily by the global elites on the inhabitants of this planet.  Who, for instance, is not aware of the international crime syndicate known as the Federal Reserve and the global Central Banking System?  However, of all the cons and shams there is none greater in scope and complexity than manufactured Global Climate Change via chemical geoengineering and HAARP.

That they even attempted, much less continue to perpetrate, such a preposterous scheme only betrays their level of sheer desperation.  They do know that, when a critical mass of residents get wind of their ploy for total planetary control, they will be frogmarched out of their plush offices and posh estates and into the same pot of hot water they have been ever so slowly heating up.  There they will be left in a stewpot of their own making, never to take over the kitchen again.

Special Note

Hey people, it really is time to LOOK UP.  Link up.  Stand up.  Speak up.  Get up.  Talk it up.  And a lot LOT more.

We all possess a fundamental right to not be chemically assaulted by anyone, or any entity under the sun. Likewise, we all have the right not to have our home and property chemically trespassed by anyone, or any entity under the sun.

Therefore, we all have a fundamental right not to be sprayed by the chemical geoengineering programs currently in operation throughout the USA. Does anyone have the right to walk onto your property and indiscriminately spray toxic chemicals wherever they wish? We think not. Should they do so, repeatedly, they might end up in an institution for the criminally insane!

Is there any business, organization or governmental entity that possesses the inherent power to conduct itself in this same manner? We don’t think so, lest they be responsible for chemical assault or trespass. Furthermore, we would challenge anyone in in the U.S. Federal Government, to cite a single instance where anyone, or any entity, possesses the legitimate (does not transgress inviolable rights), statutory power to engage in such intrusive and outright harmful behavior.

After all, chemical assault is chemical assault no matter who is spraying the toxic chemicals … or how secretly they conduct the chemical trespass.
(Source: Taking A Stand Against The Unrelenting Chemtrail Assault …)

It is truly inconceivable that such a destructive and harmful government program is running 24/7 right over our heads and hardly anyone notices.

Because so few have taken notice, We the People are now forced into a geoengineered corner.  And there’s only one way out of that corner.

Think of our collective predicament as the American colonists did.  They knew that there was only one way out of the nascent British Empire.  With each year came a different form of oppression in the form of so many dictatorial “Acts” issued by the Crown.  As follows:

1733 – Molasses Act
1764 – Sugar Act
1764 – Currency Act
1765 – Stamp Act
1765 – Quartering Act
1766 – Declaratory Act
1767 – Townshend Revenue Act
1773 – Tea Act
1774 – Intolerable or Coercive Acts

What’s the point?  The American people are now dictated to by another despotic tyranny. Now we have the patently unlawful and covertly executed Geoengineering Act administered by the U.S. Federal Government.  This is just one of many other unwanted  national initiatives that have been imposed on the citizenry such as GMO foods, fluoridated water, mandatory childhood vaccinations, circumcision without consent, as well as a whole slew of taxes and fees which have kept many in the state of perpetual poverty.

None of these compare to the fouling of our air.  What could possibly come close to the poisoning of the ambient air that we breathe with so many highly toxic contaminants?!

NASA says Antarctic has been COOLING for past SIX years

ANTARCTIC temperatures have cooled over the past six years, according to US space agency NASA.

PUBLISHED: 15:51, Wed, Nov 25, 2015 | UPDATED: 16:44, Wed, Nov 25, 2015
Heimdal Glacier in southern Greenland, in an image captured on Oct. 13, 2015, from NASA Langley Research Center's Falcon 20 aircraft flying 33,000 fee

An intensive scientific study of both Earth’s poles has found that from 2009 to 2016 overall temperature has dropped in the southern polar region.

NASA’s Operation IceBridge is an airborne survey of polar ice and has finalized two overlapping research campaigns at both the poles.

In the last few weeks NASA has revealed the overall amount of ice has increased at the Antarctic and the amount of sea ice has also extended.

Coupled with the latest announcement of slight cooling in the area, it has fueled claims from climate change deniers that human industrialization is not having the huge impact on global temperature as often is claimed.

Map showing the extent of ice during the NASA studies

Christopher Shuman, a University of Maryland, Baltimore County glaciologist working at Goddard, said: “Field data suggests that there’s been a modest cooling in the area over the 2009–2015 time period, and images collected during that time by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on the Terra and Aqua satellites show more persistent fast ice (sea ice that is attached to the shore) in the Larsen A and Larsen B embayments”

However, Mr Shuman warned that in some areas of the Antarctic, glaciers continued to melt at significant levels, despite  the slight temperature drop.

At the south polio, the mission observed a big drop in the height of two glaciers situated in the Antarctic Peninsula.

Mr Shuman added: “These IceBridge measurements show that once the ice shelves collapse, even some cooling and a good deal of persistent sea ice is not able to hold back these larger glaciers and they continue to lose mass overall.”

NASA has found that overall the amount of Antarctic ice has increased

During one flight in the Peninsula that mapped the drainage area of several glaciers, a drop of more than 490 feet (150 meters) in the height of two glaciers since IceBridge last plotted them, in 2009, was measured.

Both glaciers, called Green and Hektoria, were tributaries to the Larsen B ice shelf, which disintegrated in 2002.

After the ice shelf collapsed, it stopped buttressing the glaciers that fed it, and glacier elevations have fallen dramatically since then.

A study published in 2012 showed average elevation losses of up to 82 feet (25 meters) per year for the lower Green and Hektoria glaciers from 2006 to 2011.

Many scientists believe the climate is gradually heating up and we will be looking at droughts and water shortages in the long term

A NASA spokesman said:”So IceBridge’s discovery that both are still losing ice fast many years after the loss of the adjacent ice shelf is “not all that surprising given what we have observed with other sensors,” said Mr Shuman.

So, confusingly, the new details of further glacial melt have fueled those who believe we are causing global warming and polar ice melt.

At the Arctic north pole, the project collected much needed measurements of the status of land and sea ice at the end of the Arctic summer melt season.

The results of these have yet to be published, but the whole issue is set to be debated in full at a clime change conference in Paris later this month.

This Discovery Will Change The Climate Change Debate

       Dr David Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.

A MATHEMATICAL discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer Dr David Evans may change everything about the climate debate, on the eve of the UN climate change conference in Paris next month.

A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.

He has found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.

He has fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.

It turns out the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has over-estimated future global warming by as much as 10 times, he says.

“Yes, CO2 has an effect, but it’s about a fifth or tenth of what the IPCC says it is. CO2 is not driving the climate; it caused less than 20 per cent of the global warming in the last few decades”.

Dr Evans says his discovery “ought to change the world”.

“But the political obstacles are massive,” he said.

His discovery explains why none of the climate models used by the IPCC reflect the evidence of recorded temperatures. The models have failed to predict the pause in global warming which has been going on for 18 years and counting.

“The model architecture was wrong,” he says. “Carbon dioxide causes only minor warming. The climate is largely driven by factors outside our control.”

There is another problem with the original climate model, which has been around since 1896.

While climate scientists have been predicting since the 1990s that changes in temperature would follow changes in carbon dioxide, the records over the past half million years show that not to be the case.

So, the new improved climate model shows CO2 is not the culprit in recent global warming. But what is?

 

Dr Evans has a theory: solar activity. What he calls “albedo modulation”, the waxing and waning of reflected radiation from the Sun, is the likely cause of global warming.

He predicts global temperatures, which have plateaued, will begin to cool significantly, beginning between 2017 and 2021. The cooling will be about 0.3C in the 2020s. Some scientists have even forecast a mini ice age in the 2030s.

If Dr Evans is correct, then he has proven the theory on carbon dioxide wrong and blown a hole in climate alarmism. He will have explained why the doomsday predictions of climate scientists aren’t reflected in the actual temperatures.

Dr David Evans, who says climate model architecture is wrong, with wife Jo Nova

“It took me years to figure this out, but finally there is a potential resolution between the insistence of the climate scientists that CO2 is a big problem, and the empirical evidence that it doesn’t have nearly as much effect as they say.”

Dr Evans is an expert in Fourier analysis and digital signal processing, with a PhD, and two Masters degrees from Stanford University in electrical engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering (for which he won the University medal), Bachelor of Science, and Masters in Applied Maths from the University of Sydney.

He has been summarising his results in a series of blog posts on his wife Jo Nova’s blog for climate sceptics.

He is about half way through his series, with blog post 8, “Applying the Stefan-Boltzmann Law to Earth”, published on Friday.

When it is completed his work will be published as two scientific papers. Both papers are undergoing peer review.

“It’s a new paradigm,” he says. “It has several new ideas for people to get used to.”

Stupid American voters are being heavily conditioned by main stream media for the next massive tax increase before they’ve had a chance to deal with the last one, Obama Care.

Remember Cap and Trade? This one, “The American Opportunity Carbon Free Act”, reported as being formally discussed in the US Senate on a weekly basis since last November’s mid-term elections is a proposed tax on fossil fuels used by manufactures. This revenue act would also assess fees for other greenhouse gas emissions and tariffs on products from countries who aren’t taxing their manufactures in the same way.

Below is a prime example of how government has been using main stream media to scare stupid American voters into accepting the climate change lie behind “The American Opportunity Carbon Free Act”, before it ultimately gets crammed through congress like Obama Care. This makes me wonder if Jonathan Gruber, the highly compensated consultant architect of The Affordable Care Act, made famous for referring to the rest of us as “stupid American voters” have been hired to help sell this one too.

Mega-Droughts To Become The New Normal

A stock pond south of Dallas dries up due to a drought. Conditions like this could become more commonplace in the later part of the 21st century due to global warming.

Large sections of the United States will endure “persistent droughts” in the coming decades that will be worse than anything experienced in the past 1,000 years.

Comparing the conditions to the Dust Bowl but lasting several decades, researchers writing in the journal Science Advances warned Thursday that the Southwest and Great Plains will be hit by these “mega-droughts” in the later part of the 21st century. Such events have been linked to the fall of civilizations, including the decline of the Anasazi, or Ancient Pueblo Peoples, in the Colorado Plateau in the late 13th century.

“The story is a bit bleak,” said Jason E. Smerdon, a co-author and climate scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, part of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. “Even when selecting for the worst mega drought-dominated period, the 21st century projections make (those) mega droughts seem like quaint walks through the Garden of Eden.”

Colored lines to the right side of the graph represent what climate models see ahead: a trend toward dryness not seen in the previous millennium. Cook et al., Science Advances, 2015

To come up with these projections, researchers turned to the North American Drought Atlas which recreates the history of drought over the previous 2,005 years, based on hundreds of tree-ring chronologies, gleaned in turn from tens of thousands of tree samples across the United States, Mexico and parts of Canada.

Taking the Atlas data, they then applied three different measures of drought – two soil moisture measurements at varying depths, and a version of the Palmer Drought Severity Index, which gauges precipitation and evaporation and transpiration. After that, the researchers applied 17 different climate models to analyze the future impact of rising average temperatures on the regions and compared two different global warming scenarios – a continued rise in greenhouse gas emissions and one where they are moderated.

The results, according to the study, point to a “remarkably drier future that falls far outside the contemporary experience of natural and human systems in Western North America, conditions that may present a substantial challenge to adaption.”

“The surprising thing to us was really how consistent the response was over these regions, nearly regardless of what model we used or what soil moisture metric we looked at,” said lead author Benjamin I. Cook of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. “It all showed this really, really significant drying.”

Today, 11 of the past 14 years have been drought years in much of the American West, including California, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona and across the Southern Plains to Texas and Oklahoma, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a collaboration of U.S. government agencies.

The current drought directly affects more than 64 million people in the Southwest and Southern Plains, according to NASA, and many more are indirectly affected because of the impacts on agricultural regions. As a result, states have imposed water restrictions, aquifers have been drawn down and reservoirs such as Lake Meade and Lake Powell are at historic low levels.

“Changes in precipitation, temperature and drought, and the consequences it has for our society – which is critically dependent on our freshwater resources for food, electricity and industry – are likely to be the most immediate climate impacts we experience as a result of greenhouse gas emissions,” said Kevin Anchukaitis, a climate researcher at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Anchukaitis said the findings “require us to think rather immediately about how we could and would adapt.”

The current study on so-called medieval droughts adds to a large body of research linking climate to worsening droughts in parts of the Southwest. The driver, for the most part, is warming in recent decades brought on by increasing greenhouse gas emissions mostly from the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities.

“The results … are extremely unfavorable for the continuation of agricultural and water resource management as they are currently practiced in the Great Plains and southwestern United States,” David Stahle, professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arkansas and director of the Tree-Ring Laboratory and who was not involved in the study, said.

Aiguo Dai, a University associate professor who did not take part in the study but has done studies on past and future droughts across the globe including the United States, said its findings were “fairly convincing” and hopefully will motivate policy makers to take action.

“This provides huge warning sign for society, for the governments to take action to slow down global warming,” Dai told CBS News. “If they don’t, its likely the Southwest could become unsuitable for agriculture or many other activities.”

The Truth About Climate Change

What’s really going on?

by Kit Daniels | InfowarsThe Truth About Climate ChangeThis polar bear isn’t suffering from “climate change” – he’s just swimming at the zoo.

Man-made “climate change” is largely a myth promoted by politicians to scare the public into accepting a vast expansion of government to supposedly stop “global warming.”

Global warming is a manufactured problem played up by the government to instigate a public reaction – fear – the government then exploits to offer a predetermined solution: the expansion of government at the public’s expense.

This strategy, now known as the Hegelian Dialectic, has been used successfully by politicians for millennia to expand government, which can only grow at the expense of individual liberties.

The Bush administration used the strategy successfully in 2003 when it gained enough public support for the invasion of Iraq by claiming the country had weapons of mass destruction, and the war ultimately expanded the military-industrial complex and America’s emerging police state.

Today “global warming” is used as the bogey man because it allows the United Nations to scare the world’s population into believing “man-made climate change” is too big of a threat for their country to handle alone and thus it can only be “defeated” through the expansion of the U.N. at the expense of their nation’s sovereignty.

And state-funded scientists are given thousands and even millions of dollars to help promote the myth of “global warming” by fitting their data into the fearmongering agenda.

“This was viewed as the most likely to succeed because it could be related to observable conditions such as smog and water pollution – in other words, it would be based partly on fact and, therefore, be credible,” G. Edward Griffin wrote in his book The Creature from Jekyll Island. “Predictions could be made showing end-of-earth scenarios just as horrible as atomic warfare.”

“Accuracy in these predictions would not be important; their purpose would be to frighten, not inform.”

And the latest claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record certainly rejected accuracy in favor of fear.

“Any temperature claim of ‘hottest year’ based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous ‘hottest years,’” Marc Morano of Climate Depot reported. “This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges.”

“The claim of the ‘hottest year’ is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts; ‘hottest year’ claims are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18-plus-year ‘pause’ or ‘standstill’ [in warming.]”

The standstill he refers to can be found in Remote Sensing Systems satellite data that shows there has been no significant rise in global temperature since Oct. 1996, which is more than half the 36-year satellite record.

And this pause in warming could last at least another decade.

“The Great Pause is a growing embarrassment to those who had told us with ‘substantial confidence’ that the science was settled and the [climate change] debate over,” climate analyst Lord Christopher Monckton wrote. “Nature had other ideas.”
