John F. Kerry, the not-so-swift slanderer of U.S. troops, tax-dodging yachtsman supreme, and — along with the despicable Jane Fonda — the best friend the Viet Cong ever had (See comment below by aJey at the Khmer connection), has reported for duty once again, this time aiming his AK at everyone who’s had the unmitigated gall to expose the global warming scam of the international socialists:
Kerry acknowledged and bemoaned the success of those who question the notion of human-induced global warming. He compared skeptics to flat-earthers and decried what he called a “concerted assault on reason.”
“Climate change, over the last few years, has regrettably lost credibility in the eyes and ears of the American people, because of a concerted campaign of disinformation – a concerted campaign to brand the concept as somehow slightly out of the mainstream of American political thinking.” Kerry: Climate Change ‘As Dangerous’ as Iran’s Nukes and Possibility of War
There’s been a “concerted campaign of disinformation”, all right, and it’s been conducted largely by leftists specifically to further their agenda of world socialism. It’s time to send warmist flim-flammers like Kerry their ‘Dear John’ letters. For a detailed look at the latest evidence, see Team AGW Big Lie Exposed:
Anthony Watts has just pre-released a game changing paper that he co-authored and it can be found here. This paper has the potential to rock the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory and the Al Gore approved hockey stick graph to their foundations and prove that Team AGW is guilty of statistical chicanery.
The evidence for man-made global warming is spurious at best and fraudulent at worse, which is why leftists like Hanoi John now tout any and all blips in the weather as “climate change.” After all, it’s hard to argue about a phenomena that’s been going on since the formation of the planet. But in fact, the chances of us broiling to death or drowning in the lukewarm waves of rising oceans are a lot less likelier than the odds of a sudden and natural glaciation encasing us all in an icy tomb:
Contrary to the conventional wisdom of the day, the real danger facing humanity is not global warming, but more likely the coming of a new Ice Age.
What we live in now is known as an interglacial, a relatively brief period between long ice ages. Unfortunately for us, most interglacial periods last only about ten thousand years, and that is how long it has been since the last Ice Age ended.
How much longer do we have before the ice begins to spread across the Earth’s surface? Less than a hundred years or several hundred? We simply don’t know.
Even if all the temperature increase over the last century is attributable to human activities, the rise has been a relatively modest one of a little over one degree Fahrenheit — an increase well within natural variations over the last few thousand years.
While an enduring temperature rise of the same size over the next century would cause humanity to make some changes, it would undoubtedly be within our ability to adapt. Entering a new ice age, however, would be catastrophic for the continuation of modern civilization.
One has only to look at maps showing the extent of the great ice sheets during the last Ice Age to understand what a return to ice age conditions would mean. Much of Europe and North-America were covered by thick ice, thousands of feet thick in many areas and the world as a whole was much colder.
The last “little” Ice Age started as early as the 14th century when the Baltic Sea froze over followed by unseasonable cold, storms, and a rise in the level of the Caspian Sea. That was followed by the extinction of the Norse settlements in Greenland and the loss of grain cultivation in Iceland. Harvests were even severely reduced in Scandinavia And this was a mere foreshadowing of the miseries to come.
By the mid-17th century, glaciers in the Swiss Alps advanced, wiping out farms and entire villages. In England, the River Thames froze during the winter, and in 1780, New York Harbor froze. Had this continued, history would have been very different. Luckily, the decrease in solar activity that caused the Little Ice Age ended and the result was the continued flowering of modern civilization. (Read the rest here)
So why aren’t lefties like John Kerry and Barack Obama and Al Gore equally concerned with the near certainty of the arrival of a new ice age? Because no amount of manufactured hysteria will be able to convince people that wealth redistribution and socialist engineering can stop a thousand-foot glacier in its tracks — and they can’t blame that on George W. Bush.
A Comment From Cambodia: “the best prove I have is he have helped vietnam won the war. Imagine, if American won the vietnam war, we will be like South Korea, Taiwan and Kuwait. Freedom for all khmer in srok khmer [Cambodia]. Since Kerry and people like him helped the North Vietnam won the war, therefore, Khmer are suffering everyday. Kerry is the devil in khmer and south vietnam eyes, especially to my eyes.” — aJey, Angkor Wat
Hanoi John Kerry Threatens America’s Survival: In his statement made under oath, Kerry claimed that U.S. soldiers were guilty of “war crimes committed in Southeast Asia, not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.” Kerry later admitted that he never personally witnessed any of these “war crimes” … Kerry said that he based his Senate testimony on the interviews which he and Jane Fonda conducted with black, American Indian and white leftist soldiers during their Winter Soldier Investigation.
