As The Economy Recesses, Obama’s Global Warming Delusions Are Truly Cruel

President Obama issued this threat to the American people in his 2013 State of the Union Address (SOTU): “But for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change….Now, the good news is, we can make meaningful progress on this issue while driving strong economic growth….But if Congress doesn’t act soon to protect future generations, I will.”

President Obama talks as if only he was reelected in 2012. He fails to recall that the entire House of Representatives was on the ballot with him. And the American people elected a majority of Republicans to the House, not to be a rubber stamp on anything Obama wants, but as a check on Obama excesses, which is what they serve as.

Obama cited as support for his threatened global warming regulatory jihad, “Yes, it’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15.” The fact is also, however, that years of decline from a peak in global temperatures, as occurred in 1998 due to the entirely natural El Nino effect that year, can also be among the warmest on record. (That global temperature record he is talking about only goes back about 125 years, most of which has been reflecting recovery of global temperatures from the “Little Ice Age” occurring roughly from 1350 to 1850.).

“A Game Plan for Climate Change”

Science Daily

Feb. 27, 2013 — Researchers have successfully piloted a process that enables natural resource managers to take action to conserve particular wildlife, plants and ecosystems as climate changes.

The Adaptation for Conservation Targets (ACT) framework is a practical approach to assessing how future changes in air and water temperatures, precipitation, stream flows, snowpack, and other environmental conditions might affect natural resources. ACT enables scientists and managers to work hand-in-hand to consider how management actions may need to be adjusted to address those impacts.

“As acceptance of the importance of climate change in influencing conservation and natural resource management increases, ACT can help practitioners connect the dots and integrate climate change into their decisions,” said WCS Conservation Scientist, Dr. Molly Cross. “Most importantly, the ACT process allows practitioners to move beyond just talking about impacts to address the ‘What do we do about it?’ question.”

“New study finds physical mechanism linking extreme weather to climate change”

By Agence France-Presse
Monday, February 25, 2013 23:25 EST

Rows of corn severely damaged by widespread drought is left standing for insurance adjusters to evaluate on a farm near Bruceville, Indiana in August 2012. US producer prices jumped 1.7 percent in August, the largest monthly rise in three years, sparked by skyrocketing crop prices due to drought and higher energy costs, fresh data showed.

Scientists said Monday they have identified a physical mechanism behind the extreme weather that has plagued many parts of the world in recent years — and that it is tied to climate change.

Since 2010, for example, the United States and Russia have each suffered scorching heat waves, while Pakistan saw unprecedented flooding.

Scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) have traced the events to a disturbance in the air currents in the northern hemisphere, in a new study out Monday in the US Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Obama Eyes Coal Plants, Moves Forward on Climate Change Without Congress

February 22, 2013

President Barack Obama is tired of waiting for Congress to move on legislation to reduce carbon emissions, and his administration is poised to move forward on actions to do just that—including a move that will effectively eliminate the possibility of any new coal plant opening in the United States, experts say.

[…]

“If Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will,” he said. “I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”

But what can Obama do?

[..]

James McGarry, a policy analyst at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, a regional group that supports climate change legislation, says that thanks to a 2007 Supreme Court decision forcing the Environmental Protection Agency to move ahead with regulating carbon dioxide and some other gases as pollutants, the Obama administration is already working unilaterally to curb emissions but their biggest moves to date are imminent.

“Is Divestment the Only Solution to Climate Catastrophe?”

Posted: 02/26/2013 6:13 pm

Huffington Post

There is no debate that we are facing a climate catastrophe. It is underway and causing increasing suffering and destruction around the world.

Further, despite two decades of activism by environmental groups and investors, we have not yet succeeded in implementing the necessary conditions for bending the curve on carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere – placing a price on greenhouse gas emissions.

Recently the author and activist Bill McKibben has called on investors to divest their portfolios of securities in companies in the fossil fuel industry. The campaign has had a number of effects, some positive, some a distraction, and some counter-productive.

I applaud McKibben and the 350.org campaign for heightening the attention on the climate crisis, engaging many people to take action, particularly students and people of faith, and putting pressure on investors to think about how their assets can be used to advance climate solutions.

New Maps Depict Potential Worldwide Coral Bleaching by 2056

Science Daily

Feb. 25, 2013 — In a study published February 24 in Nature Climate Change researchers used the latest emissions scenarios and climate models to show how varying levels of carbon emissions are likely to result in more frequent and severe coral bleaching events.

Large-scale ‘mass’ bleaching events on coral reefs are caused by higher-than-normal sea temperatures. High temperatures make light toxic to the algae that reside within the corals. The algae, called ‘zooxanthellae’, provide food and give corals their bright colors. When the algae are expelled or retained but in low densities, the corals can starve and eventually die. Bleaching events caused a reported 16 percent loss of the world’s coral reefs in 1998 according to the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.

If carbon emissions stay on the current path most of the world’s coral reefs (74 percent) are projected to experience coral bleaching conditions annually by 2045, results of the study show. The study used climate model ensembles from the upcoming Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Hotter, wetter climate slashes labour capacity by 10%, study shows

Work capability losses owing to hot and humid conditions could double by mid-century, US government scientists say

A crow sits during a heat wave in LahoreEarth’s increasingly hot, wet climate has cut the amount of work people can do in the worst heat by about 10% in the past six decades, and that loss in labour capacity could double by mid-century, US government scientists reported on Sunday.

Because warmer air can hold more moisture than cooler air, there is more absolute humidity in the atmosphere now than there used to be. And as anyone who has sweltered through a hot, muggy summer knows, it’s more stressful to work through hot months when the humidity is high.

Tocalculate the stress of working in hotter, wetter conditions, experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration looked at military and industrial guidelines already in place for heat stress, and set those guidelines against climate projections for how hot and humid it is likely to get over the next century.

Their findings were stark: “We project that heat stress-related labour capacity losses will double globally by 2050 with a warming climate,” said the lead author, John Dunne of NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton.

Weather Extremes Provoked by Trapping of Giant Waves in the Atmosphere

Science Daily

Feb. 25, 2013 — The world has suffered from severe regional weather extremes in recent years, such as the heat wave in the United States in 2011 or the one in Russia 2010 coinciding with the unprecedented Pakistan flood. Behind these devastating individual events there is a common physical cause, propose scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). The study will be published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and suggests that man-made climate change repeatedly disturbs the patterns of atmospheric flow around the globe’s Northern hemisphere through a subtle resonance mechanism.

“An important part of the global air motion in the mid-latitudes of the Earth normally takes the form of waves wandering around the planet, oscillating between the tropical and the Arctic regions. So when they swing up, these waves suck warm air from the tropics to Europe, Russia, or the US, and when they swing down, they do the same thing with cold air from the Arctic,” explains lead author Vladimir Petoukhov.

“What we found is that during several recent extreme weather events these planetary waves almost freeze in their tracks for weeks. So instead of bringing in cool air after having brought warm air in before, the heat just stays. In fact, we observe a strong amplification of the usually weak, slowly moving component of these waves,” says Petoukhov. Time is critical here: two or three days of 30 degrees Celsius are no problem, but twenty or more days lead to extreme heat stress. Since many ecosystems and cities are not adapted to this, prolonged hot periods can result in a high death toll, forest fires, and dramatic harvest losses.

Global Geoengineering Fueling Venus Syndrome

Dane Wigington
Activist PostWhat Is “Venus Syndrome”?“Venus syndrome” is not a metaphor, it is a scientific scenario. The term should be self explanatory, but, just to be clear, Venus syndrome is a scenario in which climate and atmospheric feedback loops are triggered that can’t be switched off. Under this scenario, as greenhouse gasses build up, and cause planetary warming, yet more greenhouse gasses are released which causes still more warming. This trajectory does not end in a balmy tropical resort Earth, but rather a planet that is closer to hell. Like Venus, Earth would become a pressure cooking inferno with virtually no life.

There are a great many contributing factors already pushing Earth toward this scenario, but one stands out above the rest. Based on all available data, if the ongoing global geoengineering programs are allowed to continue, “Venus syndrome” will be the likely end result for our planet, and sooner than almost any can imagine. Any that confuse this information with the rhetoric and hypocrisy of Al Gore and his carbon credit scams is making a mistake. What we face is real and has little to do the long list of self-proclaimed “environmentalists” and “environmental” groups who have all chosen to turn a blind eye to the most dire and immediate challenge faced by all life on Earth short of nuclear catastrophe, global aerosol geoengineering.

But Venus Is Much Closer To The Sun, Earth Could Never End Up In The Same State, Right?

Wrong.

Venus has many more similarities to our Earth than most realize. Venus is close to the same size, and a similar composition to Earth. Though there is still ongoing debate, the most recent science data suggests that Venus once had an atmosphere and oceans, not unlike Earth. All things being equal, Venus would not be so much warmer than Earth, but something went horribly wrong on Venus.

– See more at: http://www.activistpost.com/2013/02/global-geoengineering-fueling-venus.html#sthash.g4Z2kryK.dpuf
So What Happened?Venus underwent a “runaway greenhouse effect”. There are a number of likely contributors to this effect which are similar in nature to what is taking place on Earth at this time. Like the sun shining through the glass on a greenhouse with no vents, the thermal energy gets in, but it does not get out. The “balance” that once sustained our planet’s life support systems are lost. As the scale then tilts to one side, warming, the “runaway effect” begins to feed itself. Once it progresses far enough there is no turning back, no stopping it. In the case of Venus, the average temperatures due to the “runaway greenhouse effect” are over 800 degrees.What Is Tilting Things So Far Out Of Balance?

Though there are many contributing factors which are negatively affecting Earth’s natural systems at this time, based on all available data one outweighs all others combined: global weather modification/geoengineering programs.

Geoengineering is the “elephant in the room” that is completely ignored or outright denied by nearly all climate change/environmental groups and organizations. It is of course a given that all governmental organizations deny the glaring reality of the ongoing geoengineering programs. This is in spite of the fact that the very same agencies and administration officials are actively proposing global geoengineering programs be implemented immediately, again, as if they have not long since been fully deployed.

Atmospheric saturation with geoengineering nano particles, and the ever more apparent jet stream manipulation with ionosphere heater facilities like HAARP, are literally decimating Earth’s life sustaining systems.

Why Are They Geoengineering If Its So Destructive?

Because they can. Because there is no one to stop them. Because, at least for the short run, geoengineering is a weapon of unimaginable power (until the atmosphere implodes from these programs).

Too many people fail to consider that we are not dealing with reason or sanity in regard to those that run these weather/modification weather/warfare programs. This is the same power structure that has detonated over 1800 nuclear weapons around the globe. The same power structure that sprayed its own soldiers with Agent Orange in Viet Nam. The same power structure that has cavalierly used depleted uranium in ammunition in conflicts around the globe. The same power structure that has routinely done biological testing on innocent civilians again and again. There is no sanity in this equation.

The stated purpose on most geoengineering patents is to deflect a percentage of the sun’s thermal energy in order to slow global warming.

The reflective (and toxic) metal particulates create artificial cloud cover which increases the Earth’s “albedo” (reflectivity). Aside from the fact that the elements being sprayed are highly toxic, so far so good, right? Mission accomplished? Not exactly. The long and dire list of negative consequences from geoengineering exponentially outweighs any perceived benefit. Ozone depletion, completely disrupted hydrological cycle (drought and deluge), poisoned and sterilized soils and waters, massive resulting forest and species die off, altered wind and ocean currents, triggering of catastrophic climate feedback loops which threaten all life on Earth, to name a few of the consequences.

So let me clarify, as here is the rub; they say geoengineering is nessesary in order to increase the Earths albedo (reflectivity) in order to slow runaway climate change. Available science states Venus already has an albedo over 2 times greater than Earth. Fully 70% of the sun’s thermal energy is reflected away from Venus due to the albedo of its atmosphere as apposed to less than 30% for Earth. Venus is very bright in the evening sky due to its already high albedo. Has this high albedo helped Venus cool down? Not at all. Again, the temperatures on the surface of Venus are 800 degrees plus. Hot enough to melt lead. The surface pressure on Venus is nearly 100 times that of Earth.

Clearly there is much more to a life-sustaining planet than simply having a more reflective atmosphere.

If “cooling” the planet was truly the primary goal of the geoengineering programs, their method is insane at best. I is the “pharmaceutical” approach: applying a “cure” that is exponentially worse than the ailment it was meant to treat. It is increasingly evident that much more straightforward goals are being carried out with the weather modification, weather warfare programs. Ultimate power and control are inevitably at the root of such programs. All available data indicates that if the geoengineering programs continue, this “power” over the weather, and Earth’s inhabitants, will very soon be at the cost of all life on Earth. Geoengineering can and does create large-scale cooling events by blotting out the sun on an immense scale and with artificial ice nucleation of clouds and storms, but it comes at the cost of a much worsened warming overall. In addition to the consequences listed above; simply stated, geoengineering particulates and the toxic atmospheric haze they create traps more heat than it deflects. They are making our already dire situation worse by the day.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Geoengineering has already helped to trigger catastrophic climate feedback mechanisms like methane mass expulsion in the Arctic. Our planet is now changing at blinding speed, and not for the better. All available data makes clear that the climate altering programs have been increasingly ramped up for over 60 years. The Earth and its life-sustaining natural systems have been increasingly hampered by these programs until, at this point, the effect of the massive global geoengineering programs are so total that our planet is literally in a “straight jacket”.

Humanity has decimated the biosphere in countless ways, there is no rational argument to deny this fact. This being said, the single greatest decimating factor so far, based on all available data, is the ongoing global weather modification/geoengineering programs. A decimated ozone layer, completely disrupted hydrological cycle, altered wind and ocean currents, triggering life-threatening climate feedback loops (methane release), the loss of our once blue skies and photosynthesis, and the literal poisoning of all life on Earth from the fallout. This is their “cure” for the climate disruption largely caused by the geoengineering programs to begin with.

It is now becoming ever more difficult for those in power to hide the visible global geoengineering programs and the decimation they are causing. The corporate/military/industrial/media complex will soon be much more active in their attempt to spin the reality and horrific effects of these programs. To “sell” them to the public as necessary mitigation for the increasingly destructive weather we are all witness to.

The “Weather Channel” will increase their already ongoing propaganda campaign on Febuary 28 with a new series, “Hacking the Planet“. It is important to remember that virtually all major weather modeling and forecasting agencies are now owned/controlled by the same players that are conducting the climate/weather modification programs. Their job is to explain away the ever increasing climate anomalies and disruptions largely caused by the already ongoing geoengineering.

It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to help in the effort to bring the lethal geoengineering programs to light. We must be out in front of the propaganda effort to sell the globally decimating geoengineering programs to the general public. Educate yourself on this dire issue, get credible materials to hand out, and educate others. Examples of information flyers can be found at http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/ads. Get a copy of Michael Murphy’s Why In The World Are They Spraying, then make copies, and hand them out.

If we can just reach critical mass of public awareness, we have a good chance of stopping the spraying. At that point those who actually carry out these programs would realize they are literally slow-killing themselves and their families along with the rest of us. Many if not most would likely choose not to participate. Public awareness is growing by the day, we must do everything possible to not only maintain, but increase this momentum.

If geoengineering/weather/climate modification is not stopped, and the planet not allowed to respond and recover, available science points to “Venus syndrome” as the likely future for us all.

Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretence. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true. – Osho

UN Sustainable Energy Initiative Could Put World On a Path to Climate Targets

Science Daily

Feb. 24, 2013 — The UN’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative, if successful, could make a significant contribution to the efforts to limit climate change to target levels, according to a new analysis from IIASA and ETH Zurich.

The study, published today in Nature Climate Change, showed that reaching the 3 energy-related objectives proposed by the United Nations in their Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative, launched in 2011, would reduce emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change and, in combination with other measures, could help keep global temperature rise from exceeding the internationally agreed target level of 2°C.

“Achievement of the 3 objectives would provide an important entry point into stringent climate protection,” says Joeri Rogelj, ETH Zurich researcher and IIASA-affiliated scientist, who led the study. The study found that the short-term objectives, which aim for 2030, would help achieve long-term climate targets. However, to ensure achievement of stringent climate objectives, SE4ALL would need to be complemented by other measures, the researchers say.
