If Climate Change is Settled, Then why do the Alarmists Keep Moving the Goal Posts?

As we showcased last week on Quixotes, the Climate Alarmists love nothing more than to keep the goal posts in constant motion, trying to stay ahead of the Climate Realists who keep proving that the AGW predictions are consistently wrong.  (See Live Science Predicts an Ice Free Arctic by 2020 or maybe 2060 or 2035 or 2025.)

Here’s another article discussing the same issue, from The Albany Herald:

Chicken Little science proponents cluck louder

Cal Thomas — April 18, 2014

The cult centered on “global warming” alarmism is getting hot under the collar. People seem to have stopped paying attention and polls show “climate change” barely registers on a list of voters’ concerns.

This can only mean, as losing politicians like to say, that their message isn’t getting through. What to do? Why shout louder, of course.

A recent story in The New York Times sought to help alarmists raise the decibel level: “The countries of the world have dragged their feet so long on global warming that the situation is now critical, experts appointed by the United Nations reported Sunday, and only an intensive worldwide push over the next 15 years can stave off potentially disastrous climatic changes later in the century.”

I guess we had better get ready for climate Armageddon then because China, one of the world’s worst polluters, is not likely to comply.

The Obama administration and liberal politicians in general seem to promote climate change fiction in order to gain even more dominance over our lives. Apparently controlling one-sixth of the economy through Obamacare isn’t enough for them.

Most of the “reporting” on the subject is decidedly one-sided, including President Obama’s claim in his last State of the Union address that “The debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.” Science is never settled, or it wouldn’t be science. It is constantly testing, probing and searching for new information. That’s why science textbooks are regularly revised as new discoveries are made.  Continue reading here….

    In-depth studies, carried out over the last 45 seconds, confirm there is a direct link between the climate and politics.

    Both climate and politics change over time !! A fact confirmed in the afore mentioned in-depth study.

    “Man” is the main cause of all political change, therefore “Man” is the main cause of climate change.

    The climate is seen as a problem if a particular political party is in power, whereas there is no problem at all to be see with the climate if the opposite party is at the helm.

    So, the simplest way to solve any climate problems is to keep that party “who see no problems”, in power.

    Not only will this save the Earth from certain destruction, it will save a lot of money in the national budget as there’ll be no need for climate science committees, reports, analysis, action etc.

    Prior to the 45 second in-depth study, a cartoon was created, which may, or may not, conflict with the theme of the above summary.

    That climate change cartoon is here . . . . . . . .

    And why is it now called “climate change” instead of “global warming”?

    Want to experience climate change? How about the Himalayan glaciers for some proof? The Everest avalanche caused the deaths of at least 16 people – the worst one ever. Khumbu icefall. Here is a link to favorite sites: http://explore.glacierworks.org/en/#trek/khumbu-glacier

    The site has changed over time. For a view of the change in glaciers over the last 100 years – befores and afters called Vanishing Glaciers: http://explore.glacierworks.org/en/#glaciers

    Happy Easter.

      We are still coming out of an ice age. Of course glaciers are going to be retreating, just like they have been doing for 10,000 years.

    It’s tempting to take sides and do the alarmist/denial rhetoric. How about learning about arctic glaciers. Canadian scientists actively study them. NOAAs webpage does a good job of laying out glaciers.

    Greenland alone has dozens of glaciers! Check out wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_glaciers_in_Greenland

    I’d have to go back to school for 6-8 years to claim expertise in climate or atmospheric science. The 2 poles are where ice lives. Not much else inhabits either pole.

    Irrespective of whether this is a little ice age, a multi million year cycle, the scientists tell us we’re causing major pollution that is trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and that this is the reason glaciers and snow caps are melting quickly. I don’t think they’re lying. What reason would they have to conspire about such a grave subject?

    The oil and gas companies believe it. They are leasing areas of where they plan to drill.
    Canada has experience in drilling and here are some of the damage caused by drilling waste. http://www.eenews.net/stories/1059990495
