Compare & Contrast

A press release from Al Gore's climate alarmist group:
Today, The Climate Reality Project (formerly the Alliance for Climate Protection) announced a new global campaign to broadcast the reality of the climate crisis and mobilize citizens to help solve it. The campaign kicks off with 24 Hours of Reality, a worldwide, live streamed event on September 14-15.

During the 24 Hours of Reality event, people all around the globe living with the impacts of climate change will connect the dots between recent extreme weather events -- including floods, droughts and storms -- and the manmade pollution that is changing our climate. From Tonga to Cape Verde and Mexico City to Alaska, the event will feature scientists, celebrities, business leaders and concerned citizens, along with former Vice President Al Gore.
Prof. Roger Pielke Jr.:
I have been asked by many people whether . . . we can now attribute some fraction of the global trend in disaster losses to greenhouse gas emissions, or even recent disasters such as in Pakistan and Australia.

I hate to pour cold water on a really good media frenzy, but the answer is "no." . . . But still, can't we just connect the dots? Isn't it just obvious? And only deniers deny the obvious, right?

What seems obvious is sometime just wrong. This of course is why we actually do research. . .

Connecting the dots is fun, but it is not science.
Conclusion: Al Gore is incapable of grasping that storms aren't more severe and weather isn't climate.

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism

Warren, from your link:

but real-world data have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the alarmist computer models have predicted

Uhhh, pardon me, but ah, wait a minute. What kind of idiotic claim IS this (on the alarmist's part)?

Increased cloud cover is generally associated with COOLING because it causes a substantial in the earth's albedo, and hence a lowering of the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth's surface to heat it up.

What's the claim, that the increased cloud cover is going to heat up the UPPER atmosphere?

Because it literally is blatant nonsense to think it's going to trap MORE heat at the surface than it reflects away in this situation.

This is analogous to claiming that putting reflective tint on your car windows is going to heat up your car MORE because the glass is going to get hotter as a result?

So, whose addled thought processes are failing to go, "Wait... WTF?"

Under Republican George Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton:

National Debt
Size of poverty population of adults and children
Home ownership
Income and assets of middle class and top 2% of wealthiest
Soldiers killed in foreign wars

Get it?

Republicans are destroying the USA with their greed and petty, egotistical politics having abandoned patriotism, intelligence, common sense and sanity.

Obama may not be the answer, but clearly the Republicans and the Tea Party are the cause of the destruction of the economic well being of the citizens of the country.
