Dear Pres. Obama,
The latest peer-reviewed evidence from so-called deniers on global warming, shows that the IPCC has grossly overestimated the effect of CO2 in the atmosphere, and therefore no more than approximately 1° of heat will be gained during the next century. Please give up your attempt to modify the climate, as we have little bearing on such a complex system, and all you’re doing is wasting money on a fruitless fallacy.
Your e-mail said “Carbon pollution is putting our health and safety at risk, contributing to higher rates of asthma attacks and more frequent and severe heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods.”, yet this is NOT TRUE. In fact, severe weather has only decreased in recent years,as described here, here, here, here, and finally here . As far as asthma is concerned, there is significant disagreement over the role of outdoor air qualitycontribution to that problem, as described here , here , here , and finally here.
“We know that the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Sea levels in New York Harbor are a foot higher than a century ago.” Your administration’s has adjusted climate records many times as documented here, here, here, , here , here, here, here, and here. I could go on and on, because James Hansen is a fraud, trying to make recent climate records meet his agenda and yours. As far as sea level is concerned this research article shows that Sea Level Trends Nearly Constant For The Past 100 Years , and this research article says that oceans will fall not rise over time , and this article shows that even the Theory of Global Warming has been upset by falling sea levels .This research shows that CO2 and global warming have had zero impact on the storms of the last 50 years Finally, this research shows that sea level rise has greatly DECELERATED in the last 10 years, http://bit.ly/MhuxXG
“The 12 warmest years in recorded history have all come in the last 15 years. Last year, temperatures in some areas of the ocean reached record highs, and ice in the Arctic shrank to its smallest size on record — faster than most models had predicted it would. These are facts. ““ Mr. President that’s pretty strange, because this article shows that the ocean have been relatively stable temperature for years, http://n.pr/1eRtAvV (You will have to read the narrative, or listen to it on NPR , but it basically says that 3000 robots in the ocean since 2003 have failed to find any extra heat in the oceans) As far as the Arctic is concerned, this is also a distortion of the facts, as the Arctic was warmer than the present during the Medieval Warm Period, http://bit.ly/1f7Hihd .Also, the Arctic actually gained 920,000 square miles of ice during 2013 over 2012, the largest year-to-year increase since satellite records began, http://onforb.es/1avbowz. Also, Sir, recent research has shown that climate is defined more by Solar, the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). These provide all the variability needed as natural sources, without external influence like CO2, http://bit.ly/1kcUuEb
“Today, about 40 percent of our carbon pollution comes from power plants. But while we limit the amount of mercury, arsenic, and other toxic chemicals they pump into our air and water, there are no Federal limits to the amount of carbon pollution they release. That is why I have directed the Environmental Protection Agency to put an end to the limitless dumping of carbon pollution from our power plants, and complete new pollution standards for both new and existing power plants.” I don’t understand why you’re so against carbon dioxide, and also calling it carbon pollution. It’s the elixir of life, responsible for all of our food source growth. One little fact you apparently don’t even understand is that mankind’s contribution of CO2 in the atmosphere is is so small compared to what is naturally produced, that it is nicely portrayed by this video on the Dallas Cowboys football stadium, 100,000 seats, http://slidesha.re/1e2Sb5N . Additionally, your war on coal is ill advised, as research has proved that coal is not the reason for any Global Warming, http://bit.ly/1fl8iHd
“As power plants modernize and cut their pollution, we will do even more to boost clean energy production. Thanks in part to my Administration’s investments in renewable energy—the largest of their kind in American history—the United States has already doubled our output from wind and solar, and thousands of Americans now have jobs as a result.” This increase in renewables hasn’t come cheaply. The price of each of these so-called green jobs has been astronomical. For example, you praised Spain for her renewables program, yet her economy is failing because if it. A noted Spanish economist estimated that for every Spanish green job created, nine(9) non-green jobs were lost, http://bit.ly/1apvxDM. Already, your budget for renewables is getting way out-of-control. It would be much better if you and Congress removed all subsidies from all forms of energy production, to allow them to compete on a level playing field. ”I have set a goal of doubling electricity production from these sources again by 2020 so we can build on our momentum and create even more jobs.” Your administration’s attempt to increase the percentage of renewables led to the Solyndra scandal, rather than letting the marketplace decide where photovoltaics had a chance of competing. Unfortunately, that’s your legacy with renewable energy, as discussed here.
“Now,we know that no single weather event is caused solely by climate change. Droughts and fires and floods, they go back to ancient times. But we also know that in a world that’s warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by a warming planet. The fact that sea level in New York, in New York Harbor, are now a foot higher than a century ago — that didn’t cause Hurricane Sandy, but it certainly contributed to the destruction that left large parts of our mightiest city dark and underwater.” Theworld temperature has shown no warming for 17 years, http://bit.ly/1clHhpX. Mr. Pres. I was a nine-year old boy when I witnessed the results of my family’s vacation cottage surviving the carnage by what had been called the Storm of the Century, This 1962 storm made this list where will Sandy Rank Among These Worst U.S. Storms Of All Time, and the US Coast and Geodetic Survey declared it as the storm that with most coastal land lost in history.
“No single step can reverse the effects of climate change. But as a Nation, we have a moral obligation to act—not just for ourselves, but for future generations. This is not just a job for politicians. We need you to educate your classmates, your colleagues, your parents, and your friends and tell them what is at stake. We need people to speak up for the facts and broaden the circle of those who are willing to stand up for our future.
My Administration is making a serious, sustained commitment to address climate change. I encourage you to learn more about my Climate Action Plan at www.WhiteHouse.gov/Climate-Change.” I personally am speaking-up for the facts, which apparently you don’t understand, or won’t acknowledge.
Unfortunately, Mr. Obama, you are way in over your head.and I fear that you and the entire Democratic Party has adopted the environmental mantra of the Club of Rome, “The common enemy of humanity is man. 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 would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”,http://bit.ly/1k9obrs
This is probably my favorite quote“In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.” from “Aliens Cause Global Warming:”A Caltech Lecture by Michael Crichton, 2003,http://bit.ly/10vy0pr
Even former Senior Operations Research Analyst of the US EPA, Dr. Alan Carlin, thinks that Global Warming is a complete hoax, from A-Z, http://bit.ly/12tm0HMAlso, Oliver K. Manuel, Former NASA Principal Investigator for Apollo, has written an excellent blog that relates to this issue, http://omanuel.wordpress.com/ . I personally think that you and your entire EPA staff could benefit from taking a short climate quiz, http://bit.ly/1jDcLfw .
Mr. Pres., Anthony Watts has an excellent job of reviewing your current climate plan from both a pros and cons standpoint, and his analysis is located here . Now that you have doubled-down on your plan by proposing the establishment of regional climate hubs, and declaring that California’s drought is caused by Climate Change, I personally want nothing to do with your environmental BS, as I have read wonderful accounts of how the world is really doing, http://amzn.to/19LE5QK and http://amzn.to/IrVHYa.
Dear Mr. Pres.,
I’ve watched some of your climate change speech last Tuesday, June 25, at Georgetown, and read the entire text and you encouraged citizens to speak up for the facts, so that is what I’m doing here.
Regarding your claim that scientists were aware of CO2 levels in the atmosphere as early as the 50s, concern over such levels didn’t really take hold until VP Gore made a case for it, inaccurately, I believe, in his book An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It, http://amzn.to/14hcJ37, and a documentary film put together by Davis Guggenheim with Mr. Mr. Gore’s slideshow and the book. See this volume for a rebuttal, http://bit.ly/1aXfABR, which includes the nine (9) errors in Mr. Gore’s movie identified by the High Court in London. The judge stated that, if the UK Government had not agreed to send to every secondary school in England a corrected guidance note making clear the mainstream scientific position on these nine “errors”, he would have made a finding that the Government’s distribution of the film and the first draft of the guidance note earlier in 2007 to all English secondary schools had been an unlawful contravention of an Act of Parliament prohibiting the political indoctrination of children. In addition of these nine errors, Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, now affiliated with the Science and Public Policy Institute, identified an additional 26 more errors or misrepresentations in the movie. Similarly, other errors in Al Gore’s movie were noted in Falsehoods in Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, http://bit.ly/19RW3kY
Secondly, as far as CO2 being a pollutant as you stated, most scientists believe that CO2 is a gas necessary for all human life, because it feeds all plant life. Some have even said “Mr. President, It’s Not “Carbon Pollution” It’s the “Elixir of Life!”, http://bit.ly/17Krwbr .Furthermore, the implication that CO2 levels are driving temperatures is contrary to observations, as demonstrated here, http://bit.ly/19HZ6zm , The most complete collection of information I’ve seen recently on the possibility of Anthropogenic Global Warming is located at the Climate Science portion of the Green World Trust http://bit.ly/13ibfsx .From this page, if one clicks on the Skeptics Climate Science PowerPoint presentation, to the right of the world image at the top of the page, one will be presented with a 90-slide presentation of “Catastrophe Deconstructed” (the title page), suitable for both laypersons as well as experts in their respective fields.
Major Points from the PowerPoint Presentation that I believe should be emphasized:
Slide 21-The false assumption regarding CO2 remaining in the atmosphere for 100 years, prior to being recycled to the oceans.
Slide 37-The ice core historical model shows that temperature increased 800 hundred years BEFORE CO2 increases.
Slide 50-The quote from Dr. Richard Lindzen, atmospheric physicist and Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT, regarding alleged AGW.
Slide 52- How the Little Ice Age (LIA) was omitted from the climate record.
Slide 61-Observed warming of 0.6 Celsius, seem to support the lack of feedback in the climate model.
Slide 64-How James Hansen’s 1988 forecast for the future was wildly exaggerated.
Slide 68-70-The fallacy of increased droughts, greater rainfall, and increasing hurricanes/cyclones due to elevated CO2.
Slide 81-Read the problems with the “Precautionary Principle”.
Slide82-How AGW alarmism is Undermining the Environmental Movement
and most importantly, Slide 87-A Plea for Better Scientific Literacy And Integrity.
For further studying this issue, Slide 88 proposes A Plea for Real Energy Research.
And finally, in the U.S. Senate Committee on environment and Public Works portion, the report on Climate Skeptics Reveal ‘Horror Stories’ of Scientific Suppression, http://1.usa.gov/17RVlqD Meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo, had nothing but praise for the conference. “It was the best climate conference I have attended in my 30 years in the professional societies. The two-day meeting featured over 100 excellent presentations made by scientists from Australia, Canada, England, France, Hungary, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and of course the United States,” D’Aleo wrote on his website http://www.IceCap.US on March 4. [Note: The oft repeated notion of “hundreds” or even “thousands” of scientists affiliated with the UN agreeing to a single “consensus” does not hold up to scrutiny. Out of all the scientists affiliated with the UN, only 52 scientists participated in UN IPCC Summary for Policymakers, which had to adhere to the wishes of the UN political leaders and delegates in a process described as more closely resembling a political party’s convention platform battle, not a scientific process. – LINK & LINK (emphasis added)
Just remember what the great Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist Feynman’s said “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with the data, it’s wrong”‘ applies to the theory of man-made global warming.
So, Mr. Pres., please don’t continue to hang this unexorcised poltergeist around the neck of the American economy, as it is unlikely to ever recover at all.
