Unlike the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the NIPCC report finds the human impact on climate is very small and any change in temperatures that might occur in the future is so small that it will not be noticed against the climate’s natural variability.
Our “Dear Leader” Barack Hussein Obama and his minions are attacking members of Congress who dare to question the left’s talking points on global warming: that it’s man-made and will cause (or is already causing) floods, droughts, storms, crime, divorce … you name it. Obama’s EPA is waging war on affordable energy, even though the “fracking” revolution is the one positive economic development that has happened to the country since Obama was elected! Most recently in January, NY State commissioned a report that they believed would decimate the “fracking” industry. Instead, the results of the investigation, that had to be leaked to see the light of day, found “…that the much-debated drilling technology known as hydrofracking could be conducted safely in New York.”
Climate Change Reconsidered directly contradicts the scientific claims being made by Obama and his allies. The Heartland Institute team of nearly 50 scientists from 15 countries have produced a report that is more than 1,000 pages long, cites nearly 4,000 peer-reviewed reports, and finds no evidence that global warming is either man made or likely to be harmful.
The Heartland Institute published the new NIPCC report on September 17, and for the last three weeks they have been promoting it like crazy. They’ve held events with the authors in Chicago, Washington, DC (hosted by our friends at the Heritage Foundation), New York, Florida, St. Louis, California, and even London, Berlin, and The Hague.
The book has received positive coverage from Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Breitbart.com, PJ Media, The Daily Caller, and dozens of Web sites and blogs. The book’s release was even reported as news by the liberals at The New York Times, Washington Post, and Bloomberg!

The Honourable Ann Bressington Independent MLC Member of the Legislative Council) in South Australia, has reached that undeniable conclusion.
In a segment of her speech captured in the accompanying video, she very adroitly ties together, The Club of Rome, Agenda 21, The Environmental Movement, and a 10 -Region Global World System which could easily extrapolate into a One World Orderof Global Governance.
“Ladies and gentlemen the origins of the environmental movement as we see it began back in nineteen sixty eight when the Club of Romewas formed. The Club of Rome has been described as a crisis think-tank which specializes in crisis creation. The main purpose of this think-tank was to formulate a crisis that would unite the world and condition us to the idea of global solutions to local problems. In a document called The First Global Revolutionauthored by Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider, on pages one hundred and four and one hundred and five it stated” in searching for a new enemy to unite us we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like could fit the bill. All these dangers, of course, will be caused by human intervention that will require a global response. That’s the origin of global warming ladies and gentlemen.” (Coloring and emphasis in the foregoing paragraph added by Mass Tea Party)
The Club of Rome published their initial rendering of the 10-Global Regions as follows:
“On 17, September, 1973, the Club of Rome published a report entitled the “Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System“, which was authored by Eduard Pestel and Mihajlo Mesarovic. The report revealed the Club’s intention to divide the world into ten economic/political regions, called “Kingdoms”, which would unite the entire world under a common leadership. These regions are:
Australia and South Africa
North Africa and the Middle East
South and Southeast Asia
Centrally Planned Asia
the Club of Rome planned to divide the entire world into ten economic/political regions, which it refers to as ‘kingdoms’
The term “Kingdoms” was left out, when the plan was released in a book entitled “Mankind at the Turning Point“, which stated that the solutions to the problems of the world could only “be developed in a global context.”
Frm VP Al Gore Got The Sale In Before The End Of 2012!
Hillary Clinton: Al-jazeera It’s Real News!! – Big Al’s Deal With Al-Jazeera?
Al-jazeera. The Terrorist Network By Some Critic!!!
Glenn Beck’s Blaze Media approached the struggling cable news network last year, the Wall Street Journal reports, but was rebuffed because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
Instead, Gore went with the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Al Gore sells Current TV to Al-Jazeera, nets reported $100 million
Former Vice President Al Gore has made himself a much, much richer man by selling his little watched cable channel Current TV to the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Gore netted $100 million with his 20 percent stake in the network when it was sold for a reported $500 million on Wednesday.
Al-Jazeera plans to euthanize the struggling, seven-year-old Current TV and turn it into Al-Jazeera America by adding five to 10 new U.S. bureaus beyond the five it has now. More than half of its content will be U.S. news, and the network will have its headquarters in New York, according to a rep.
The House gave its approval Tuesday night to the Senate bill halting massive tax hikes and delaying a risky round of spending cuts, sending the package to the president’s desk and likely averting for now an economy-stalling fiscal crisis.
The 257-167vote came after a day of high drama on Capitol Hill, during which conservative House lawmakers voiced serious concern about the Senate bill’s lack of spending cuts.
Rank-and-file Republicans initially predicted they would tinker with the package, raising the possibility the Senate would abandon it and nothing would get done before the new congressional class is seated Thursday.
But House leaders soon learned they did not have a majority behind any spending-cut plan, and allowed the straight vote. More Democrats supported the bill than Republicans.
The result, once Obama signs it, is that tax hikes that technically kicked in Jan. 1 for most Americans would largely be halted.
The bill would nix the tax increases for families making under $450,000, while letting rates rise for those making above that threshold. It would also extend unemployment insurance for another year, while patching up a host of other expiring provisions and delaying automatic spending cuts for two months. Those cuts, which would hit defense heavily, will instead be offset with a blend of tax increases and other spending cuts.
Americans will still see a 2-point increase this month in their Social Security tax, as Congress did not opt to extend that payroll tax holiday.
The House was able to shoehorn in the vote before the markets open Wednesday. Uncertainty about a deal threatened to wreak havoc on Wall Street. And economists warned that any prolonged stalemate into 2013 threatened to pull the broader economy back into a recession. In total, more than $600 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts were set to take effect this year.
The vote Tuesday came amid rising pressure from House Democrats and the Senate side, which approved the bill early Tuesday morning. Democrats made clear that they would pin the blame squarely on House Republicans if the tax hikes were not averted.
“This is the House’s wisdom in making the best of a bad situation,” one House GOP leadership aide told Fox News. “We had a bad hand from the start, but we’re avoiding being blamed for taking us off the cliff.”
Still, a number of House Republicans came out against the package, including No. 2 House Republican, Eric Cantor.
“I do not support it,” Cantor told reporters after a closed-door meeting with fellow Republicans.
Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, said earlier that the sentiment among House Republicans was to amend the bill to incorporate more spending cuts. Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., echoed the statement.
But other Republicans, while voicing opposition to the bill, acknowledged that it could pass the House.
Congress already missed the New Year’s Eve deadline for action, which technically triggered tax hikes. Without a resolution soon, taxes would have jumped by $2,400 on average for families with incomes of $50,000 to $75,000, according to a study by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. And because consumers would get less of their paychecks to spend, businesses and jobs would suffer as well.
House conservatives had begun voicing frustration Monday night about the lopsided ratio of tax increases in the plan, as compared with net spending cuts. The bill contained roughly $620 billion in tax hikes, and just a fraction of that in spending cuts. As one House Republican told Fox News, “I can’t imagine a ratio such as that warming our fiscal hearts.”
Not all Democrats were on board either. Many voiced frustration that tax hikes would only affect those making above $450,000 – when President Obama originally campaigned on raising them for households making above $250,000.
“Looks like a very bad deal the way this is shaping up,” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said Monday. Harkin voted against the Senate bill early Tuesday morning, as did Sens. Tom Carper, D-Del.; Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; Richard Shelby, R-Ala.; Michael Bennet, D-Colo.; Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; and Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
The fiscal deal, though, still pushes off a permanent decision on the spending cuts until two months down the road, when lawmakers could find themselves in a similar position. And lawmakers are poised to renew a fight in a matter of weeks over raising the debt ceiling – which the U.S. government would have hit Dec. 31 if not for the Treasury Department taking emergency measures.

Now, the Eco-Socialists are after our treasure. H’mmm, a confiscatory Carbon Tax will aid us in avoiding the Fiscal Cliff? What 2d rate Economics College did these pseudo economists attend? An international team of scientists has debunked global warming using tree ring data from the last 2,000 years and has been published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Climate Change.
Tree Ring Study Debunks Global Warming
” An international team including scientists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) has published a reconstruction of the climate in northern Europe over the last 2,000 years based on the information provided by tree-rings. Professor Dr. Jan Esper’s group at the Institute of Geography at JGU used tree-ring density measurements from sub-fossil pine trees originating from Finnish Lapland to produce a reconstruction reaching back to 138 BC. In so doing, the researchers have been able for the first time to precisely demonstrate that the long-term trend over the past two millennia has been towards climatic cooling. “We found that previous estimates of historical temperatures during the Roman era and the Middle Ages were too low,” says Esper. “Such findings are also significant with regard to climate policy, as they will influence the way today’s climate changes are seen in context of historical warm periods.” The new study has been published in the journal Nature Climate Change.”
There final conclusion is that the earth has been coolingfor the last 2000 years.
“In addition to the cold and warm phases, the new climate curve also exhibits a phenomenon that was not expected in this form. For the first time, researchers have now been able to use the data derived from tree-rings to precisely calculate a much longer-term cooling trend that has been playing out over the past 2,000 years.Their findings demonstrate that this trend involves a cooling of -0.3°C per millennium due to gradual changes to the position of the sun and an increase in the distance between the Earth and the sun.”
But Al Gore, who stands to make $Billions off of Carbon Tax legislation, along with a number of Eco-Socialists are attempting to jam the Carbon Tax through Congress in the same manner as ObamaCare.
And a further study, which is explained in the following, further refutes Al Gore and his minions unscientific contentions!
A new study by the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change – The State of Earth’s Terrestrial Biosphere: How is it Responding to Rising Atmospheric CO2 and Warmer Temperatures?– refutes claims by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that global warming is stressing Earth’s natural and agro-ecosystems by reducing plant growth and development. “Such claims are simply not justified when one examines the balance of evidence as reported in the peer-reviewed scientific literature,” said report author Dr. Craig Idso, founder and chairman of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change and a senior fellow for environment policy at The Heartland Institute. “Far from being in danger, the vitality of global vegetation is better off now than it was a hundred years ago, 50 years ago, or even a mere two-to-three decades ago,” Idso said. “And the observed increases in vegetative productivity and growth are happening in spite of all the many real and imagined assaults on Earth’s vegetation that have occurred during this time period, including wildfires, disease, pest outbreaks, deforestation, and climatic changes in temperature and precipitation.” Specific findings in the meta-analysis examining hundreds of scientific studies on the subject include:
The productivity of the planet’s terrestrial biosphere, on the whole, has been increasing with time, revealing a great greening of the Earth that extends throughout the entire globe.
Satellite-based analyses of net terrestrial primary productivity (NPP) reveal an increase of around 6 to 13 percent since the 1980s.
There is no empirical evidence to support the model-based IPCC claim that future carbon uptake by plants will diminish on a global scale due to rising temperatures. In fact, just the opposite situation has been observed in the real world.
Earth’s land surfaces were a net source of CO2-carbon to the atmosphere until about 1940. From 1940 onward, however, the terrestrial biosphere has become, in the mean, an increasingly greater sink for CO2-carbon.
Over the past 50 years, for example, global carbon uptake has doubled from 2.4 ± 0.8 billion tons in 1960 to 5.0 ± 0.9 billion tons in 2010.
There is compelling evidence that the atmosphere’s rising CO2 content – the chief reason behind the IPCC’s concerns about the future of the biosphere, due to the indirect threats the IPCC claims will result from CO2-induced climate change – is actually most likely the primary cause of the observed greening trends.
In the future, Earth’s plants should be able to successfully adjust their physiology to accommodate a warming of the magnitude and rate-of-rise that is typically predicted by climate models to accompany the projected future increase in the air’s CO2 content. And factoring in the plant productivity gains that will occur as a result of the aerial fertilization effect of the ongoing rise in atmospheric CO2, plus its accompanying transpiration-reducing effect that boosts plant water use efficiency, the world’s vegetation possesses an ideal mix of abilities to reap a tremendous benefit in the years and decades to come.
