Unbelievable: Obama’s EPA Chief, Gina McCarthy, Can’t Answer Basic Climate Questions

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy

By Gary P Jackson

Imagine that, the head of the all powerful, heavy handed agency that is attempting to control your every minute action in the name of stopping “climate change” can’t even answer the most basic questions about the environment. Questions that anyone [my age] who made it past grade school could answer!

From Investors Business Daily:

Climate Change: Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA, can’t answer basic questions about global temperatures, climate models or numbers of hurricanes. She didn’t know being a global warming zealot requires knowledge of math.

If the science of climate change was “settled,” you’d think one of the generals in the war on global warming would have memorized the numbers that point to our planetary doom from a menace the administration says is a greater threat than terrorism.

But McCarthy was asked some pretty simple questions Wednesday at a Senate hearing Wednesday on her request for $8.6 billion to help fight the claimed imminent doom of climate change, and her performance didn’t help her case.

One of the questions involved droughts and the claim that their frequency has increased due to warming that is said to be caused by mankind’s increased production of greenhouse gas, such as carbon dioxide, the basis for all life on Earth but judged by the EPA to be a pollutant.

Let me ask you this,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., inquired of McCarthy. “There was an article from Mr. (Bjorn) Lomborg … from the Copenhagen Institute. He says, along with Dr. (Roger) Pielke from Colorado, that we’ve had fewer droughts in recent years. Do you dispute that?

The seemingly clueless McCarthy pathetically responded that she didn’t “know in what context he’s making statements like that.” Context? Truth has its own context, and the inconvenient truth that McCarthy wasn’t aware of, or didn’t want to face, is that Pielke and Lomborg are right.

Pielke, a professor at the University of Colorado, told the Senate environment and public works subcommittee in July 2013 that droughts have “for the most part become shorter, less frequent and cover a smaller portion of the U.S. over the last century.” Globally, he said, “there has been little change in drought over the last 60 years.

Sessions also asked McCarthy if we’ve had more or fewer hurricanes in the last decade. It was another question she said she couldn’t answer because “it’s a very complicated issue.” Well, no, not unless basic math is a complicated issue. Sessions noted that we have in fact gone nearly a decade without a Category 3 storm or higher making landfall in the U.S.

The last hurricane to hit America as a Category 3 or higher was Wilma, which struck Florida on Oct. 24, 2005. Superstorm Sandy had wind speeds barely reaching Category 1 status when it slammed into New Jersey in 2012 and wreaked havoc.

Sessions inquired of the global temperatures that have virtually flatlined for two decades:

Would you acknowledge that over the last 18 years, that the increase in temperatures has been very little, matter of fact 90% below most of the environmental models that showed how fast temperature would increase?

McCarthy replied that she didn’t know “what the models actually are predicting that you are referring to.”

Sessions called her ignorance and inability to outline the danger we supposedly face from climate change, as well as her failure to justify the EPA’s funding request, a “stunning development.” So do we.

The science is indeed settled, but not the way climate zealots think. McCarthy’s lack of knowledge and facts on her side only underscores the fact we have wasted billions on fighting a nonexistent threat and shackled our economy with lower growth and higher job loss.

Ignorance and stupidity is the hallmark of liberalism, the democrat party, and the corrupt and evil Obama regime. It should come as no surprise that, like every other member of Obama’s vile, Anti-American, anti-human regime, Gina McCarthy is criminally incompetent and ignorant!

These people belong in prison for all of the pain and suffering they have cause the human race.

Actual Climate Expert: Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Levels are DANGEROUSLY LOW

Co2

The following as been excerpted from Twilight of Abundance: Why Life in the 21st Century will be Nasty, Brutish, and Short by David Archibald, which is available at Amazon:

Archibald Book

>The United States is needlessly penalizing itself and squandering its resource endowment, all because of the big lie that carbon dioxide is causing dangerous global warming. The Chinese, in contrast, merely pay lip service to that big lie. The only reason they are making a token effort on the “global warming” front is to encourage Western countries to continue hobbling their own economies. One can be forgiven for thinking that there must be some truth in the global warming notion given how much noise its advocates have made. But as with most causes promoted by leftist ideologues, the truth is exactly the opposite to their claim. The fact of the matter is the carbon dioxide level of the atmosphere remains dangerously low at four hundred parts per million. In fact the more carbon dioxide there is in the atmosphere, the better for all forms of life on planet Earth.

Before the Industrial Revolution, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere stood at 286 parts per million. Let us round this number to 300 parts per million to make the sums easier. Naturally occurring greenhouse gases ensure that the planet is 30°C warmer than it would otherwise be if they were not in the atmosphere, so the average temperature of the planet’s surface is 15°C instead of -15°C. Water vapor is responsible for 80 percent of that effect, and carbon dioxide for only 10 percent, with methane, ozone, and so forth accounting for the remainder. So the approximately 300 parts per million of carbon dioxide is good for 3°C degrees of warming. If the relationship between carbon dioxide concentration and temperature were arithmetic—in other words, a straight linear relationship—then adding another 100 parts per million of carbon dioxide would result in one degree of warming. We are adding 2 parts per million to the atmosphere annually, or 100 parts per million every fifty years. At that rate, humanity would fry.

Thankfully, the relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide and temperature is logarithmic, not arithmetic. The first 20 parts per million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere provides 1.6°C of warming, after which the effect drops away rapidly. From the current level of 400 parts per million, each addition of 100 parts per million adds only 0.1°C of warming. By the time we have dug up all the rocks we can economically burn, and burned them, we may reach 600 parts per million in the atmosphere. So perhaps we might add another 0.2°C of warming over the next two centuries. That warming will be lost in the noise of natural climate variation. So much for the problem of global warming! As a greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide is tuckered out. On the positive side of the ledger, it is very beneficial as aerial fertilizer. The carbon dioxide that mankind has put into the atmosphere to date has in fact boosted crop yields by 15 percent. This is like giving the Third World countries free phosphate fertilizer. Who could possibly be so heartless as to deny under- developed countries that benefit, at no cost to anyone?

The real threat is dangerously low levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The Earth has been in a glacial period for the last 3 million years, including some sixty separate glacial advances and retreats. The current Holocene interglacial period might last up to another 3,000 years before the Earth plunges into another glaciation. Carbon dioxide is a gas highly soluble in water, and its solubility is highly temperature dependent. The colder the planet is, the more carbon dioxide the oceans absorb. During glaciations the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere has fallen to as low at 180 parts per million. It needs to be stressed that plant life shuts down at 150 parts per million, as plants are unable to operate with the partial pressure differential of carbon dioxide between their cells and the atmosphere. Several times during the last 3 million years, life above sea level was within 30 parts per million of being extinguished by a lack of carbon dioxide. The flowering plants we rely upon in our diet evolved 100 million years ago when the carbon dioxide level was four times the current concentration. For plant life, the current amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is near starvation levels

And unfortunately, the carbon dioxide that human beings are pumping into the atmosphere will not be there for very long. There is fifty times as much carbon dioxide held by the oceans as there is in the atmosphere. As the deep oceans turn over, on an eight-hundred-year cycle of circulation, they will take the carbon dioxide now in the atmosphere down into Davy Jones’s Locker, where it will be of no use to man, beast, or plant life. Agricultural productivity will rise for the next two centuries or so, along with the atmospheric carbon dioxide level, after which it will fall away. By the year 3000 AD, the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide level will be only a couple of percent higher than before the Industrial Revolution. Life above sea level will therefore remain dangerously pre- carious because of the low carbon dioxide level.

Global warming” is an irrational belief whose proponents demonstrate no interest in examining scientific evidence that may prove their beliefs incorrect. As a simple cult, it has failed to progress much beyond the concept of original sin, apocalyptic visions, sumptuary laws, and the selling of indulgences. Wind farms are the temples of this state-sponsored belief system. This cult doesn’t extend to building aged-care homes, hospitals, or anything much for the common good. Instead it degrades the fabric of society by misdirecting human effort. Its true believers can hardly be blamed; the global warming cult is not much different from any of the other end-of-the-world cults that have preceded it. Society’s opprobrium should be saved for the gatekeepers who have failed in their duty to protect the public from the depredations of the global warming rent-seekers and charlatans. The boards and executive staffs of a number of learned societies across the Western world have embraced this cult against the wishes of the majority of their members…

The fact that the world has not warmed since 1998 (in defiance of the global warming scare) hasn’t dented cult members’ faith. Arguing scientific evidence with them is pointless. It will take something far worse than a return of the frigid winters of the 1970s to create doubt in their minds. That something worse is coming. Millions of people may have to endure many harsh years before this pernicious cult is vanquished. And until the global warming myth is exploded, the security of the United States—and thus of the world—is also at risk.

Flashback: After Massive Lie is Exposed NOAA Quietly Reinstates July 1936 as Hottest Month On Record

global-warming-hoax

By Gary P Jackson

We all know that the 1930’s were the hottest decade since records of temps have been kept. We also know the government has been lying, claiming that we are in a period of warming.

Well, in 2014 a prominent meteorologist and climate blogger, Anthony Watts, exposed the NOAA, after the agency quietly reinstated July, 1936 as the hottest month on record, after only days earlier they were claiming, with much fanfare, that July 2012 was the hottest month on record.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, criticized for manipulating temperature records to create a warming trend, has now been caught warming the past and cooling the present.

July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the U.S. during a summer that was declared “too hot to handle” by NASA scientists. That summer more than half the country was experiencing drought and wildfires had scorched more than 1.3 million acres of land, according to NASA.

According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in 2012, the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July was 77.6°F, 3.3°F above the 20th century average, marking the warmest July and all-time warmest month on record for the nation in a period of record that dates back to 1895.”

The previous warmest July for the nation was July 1936, when the average U.S. temperature was 77.4°F,” NOAA said in 2012.

This statement by NOAA was still available on their website when checked by The Daily Caller News Foundation. But when meteorologist and climate blogger Anthony Watts went to check the NOAA data on Sunday he found that the science agency had quietly reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record in the U.S.

Two years ago during the scorching summer of 2012, July 1936 lost its place on the leaderboard and July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the United States,” Watts wrote. “Now, as if by magic, and according to NOAA’s own data, July 1936 is now the hottest month on record again. The past, present, and future all seems to be ‘adjustable’ in NOAA’s world.

Watts had data from NOAA’s “Climate at a Glance” plots from 2012, which shows that July 2012 was the hottest month on record at 77.6 degrees Fahrenheit. July 1936 is only at 77.4 degrees Fahrenheit. [Annotations in the graph are from Watts].

noaa_usavg_temps_july_focuson_1936_from_20121.png A

Watts ran the same data plot again on Sunday and found that NOAA inserted a new number in for July 1936. The average temperature for July 1936 was made slightly higher than July 2012, meaning, once again, July 1936 is the hottest year on record. [Annotations in the graph are from Watts]

noaa_usavg_temps_july_focuson_1936_from_20141.png B

You can’t get any clearer proof of NOAA adjusting past temperatures,” Watts wrote. “This isn’t just some issue with gridding, or anomalies, or method, it is about NOAA not being able to present historical climate information of the United States accurately.

In one report they give one number, and in another they give a different one with no explanation to the public as to why,” Watts continued. “This is not acceptable. It is not being honest with the public. It is not scientific. It violates the Data Quality Act.

Greenpeace Founder: Celebrate Carbon Dioxide! One of the Most Essential Elements for Life On Earth

CO2 is Plant Food

plants_heart_co2-150

By Gary P Jackson

In a recent paper written for the Heartland Institute Greenpeace founder and conservationist Dr. Patrick Moore explains in great detail why he is, what the radical left wing extremists call, a “skeptic” on so-called “global warming.”

Dr Moore tells the reader that, despite the hysterical rantings of lunatics and con artists, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Far from it! In fact, as anyone who paid attention in elementary school science class knows, carbon dioxide is an essential element for all life on earth.

Dr Moore also notes that carbon dioxide levels are actually at precariously low levels, to the point of danger. Something we will talk about more in a later post today.

Dr Moore, an actual scientist, tells us that we should celebrate carbon dioxide, not fear it. It is an essential; element for all life on earth.

From the article:

Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic

March 20, 2015

[Editor’s Note: Patrick Moore, Ph.D., has been a leader in international environmentalism for more than 40 years. He co-founded Greenpeace and currently serves as chair of Allow Golden Rice. Moore received the 2014 Speaks Truth to Power Award at the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, July 8, 2014 in Las Vegas. Watch his presentation about this piece in the video below]

By Dr Patrick Moore

I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.”

My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.

The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.

Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced for the umpteenth time we are doomed unless we reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years before humans began clearing forests for agriculture. This proposed cure is far worse than adapting to a warmer world, if it actually comes about.

IPCC Conflict of Interest

By its constitution, the IPCC has a hopeless conflict of interest. Its mandate is to consider only the human causes of global warming, not the many natural causes changing the climate for billions of years. We don’t understand the natural causes of climate change any more than we know if humans are part of the cause at present. If the IPCC did not find humans were the cause of warming, or if it found warming would be more positive than negative, there would be no need for the IPCC under its present mandate. To survive, it must find on the side of the apocalypse.

The IPCC should either have its mandate expanded to include all causes of climate change, or it should be dismantled.

Political Powerhouse

Climate change has become a powerful political force for many reasons. First, it is universal; we are told everything on Earth is threatened. Second, it invokes the two most powerful human motivators: fear and guilt. We fear driving our car will kill our grandchildren, and we feel guilty for doing it.

Third, there is a powerful convergence of interests among key elites that support the climate “narrative.” Environmentalists spread fear and raise donations; politicians appear to be saving the Earth from doom; the media has a field day with sensation and conflict; science institutions raise billions in grants, create whole new departments, and stoke a feeding frenzy of scary scenarios; business wants to look green, and get huge public subsidies for projects that would otherwise be economic losers, such as wind farms and solar arrays. Fourth, the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy.

So we are told carbon dioxide is a “toxic” “pollutant” that must be curtailed, when in fact it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, gas and the most important food for life on earth. Without carbon dioxide above 150 parts per million, all plants would die.

Human Emissions Saved Planet

Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.

At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.

We have no proof increased carbon dioxide is responsible for the earth’s slight warming over the past 300 years. There has been no significant warming for 18 years while we have emitted 25 per cent of all the carbon dioxide ever emitted. Carbon dioxide is vital for life on Earth and plants would like more of it. Which should we emphasize to our children?

Celebrate Carbon Dioxide

The IPCC’s followers have given us a vision of a world dying because of carbon-dioxide emissions. I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide, and more of it will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate carbon dioxide.

On this Earth Day 2015 while the lunatics, environmental extremists, and Fascists hellbent on world domination [and absolute control of every facet of your miserable life] scream at the top of their lungs about the “evils” of carbon dioxide, please remember, that without this precious and vital element, without Co2, you … and everything else on Planet Earth, would die a horrific death.

The Communists, Socialist, and the Fascists who make up the democrat party, have an agenda and it is an agenda that is not compatible with civilized society.

Celebrate carbon dioxide and enjoy life today, and every day!

Insanely Ridiculous Predictions of Doom and Destruction from the First “Earth Day” [1970] That Never Happened

Earth En Fuego

By Gary P Jackson

Ah, “Earth Day” the annual event where Communists, Socialists, Fascists, “progressives,” “liberals,” democrats and other greedy, power hungry bastards, who dream of having absolute power over the human race [for fun and profit] team up with their billionaire political cronies and other con artists looking to make a quick buck, using junk science [and outright bullshit] to scare the living Hell out of people who haven’t even the most rudimentary understanding of actual science and how the world really works. Naive people who will fall for anything the corrupt lamestream media tells them, despite over 100 years worth of empirical evidence [and, you know, plain old common sense] to the contrary!

Green Police

We’ve been hearing predictions of gloom and doom for the past 45 years, and absolutely NONE of them have come to pass, and yet, ignorant people lose their shit every time someone claims this or that is due to “global warming” or the new word “climate change“!

While extremists and bullshit artists today scream about global warming, and Al Gore tells us the earth “has a fever” [even though the hottest decade on record was the 1930s] back in the 1970’s, it was the coming ICE AGE, that these lunatics were using to scare otherwise normal people to death!

Starting in 1972 and all through the 70’s, Time Magazine ran articles warning of a coming Ice Age , complete with dire warnings of mass starvation, world wars [over dwindling food resources, of course] and within a decade or so, complete and total extinction of all living things: plant, animal, and human, on earth!

While today the oceans warming is a sure sign of global warming, the same condition was said to signal a coming Ice Age in the 1970’s. You simply can’t make this of weapons grade insanity up!

Time Magazine Coming Ice Age Cover

Time-Another-Ice-Age

How insane did it all get? The Central “Intelligence” Agency [the CIA, yes THAT CIA] claimed that record flooding and other extreme weather that portions of the world was experiencing in the early 1970’s was due to “global cooling” which is hilarious, when you consider today’s extremists claim any and all bad weather, including flooding, is caused by “global warming“!

CIA Global Cooling Nonsense

Of course, all of this was complete and total nonsense, and nothing but junk science, but the media, in cahoots with the liberal fascists, Socialists, Communists, democrats, and other filthy rat bastards seeking world domination, power, and riche$ played it up to the hilt in order to scare people into submission. Thankfully, this was before President Jimmy Carter federalized our education system, and children were still taught ACTUAL science. It was also, thankfully, before the internet. As a result, few people bought into the hysteria. People used to have a fair amount of common sense built into their DNA!

Both Steve Goddard and David Middleton covered the nonsense, fear-mongering, and wildly insane predictions from Time in greater detail here and here.

A few decades later, Time would use cute and cuddly polar bears to scare the living crap out of stupid people who believe anything they read in Time!

Time Magazine Polar Bear

Here’s some facts about the polar bear the extremists hope you never find out. For one thing, these cuddly little bears are actually ENORMOUS and quite VICIOUS. They have absolute ZERO natural enemies. Nothing out in the animal kingdom hunts them. The polar bears do the hunting!

Polar bears can also swim incredible distances.

According to a study conducted by the United States Geological Survey [USGS] between 2004 and 2009, polar bears are capable of swimming as far as 220 miles in one day, while the average distance a bear covers in a day is 96 miles.

From Reuters News Service:

Tue May 1, 2012 10:35pm EDT

Polar bears are capable of swimming vast distances, a potential survival skill needed in an Arctic environment where summer sea ice is vanishing, a study led by the U.S. Geological Survey showed on Tuesday.

The study, published in the Canadian Journal of Zoology, tracked 52 female polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea off Alaska. Between 2004 and 2009, a period of extreme summer-ice retreat, about a third of those bears made swims exceeding 30 miles in distance, according to the study results.

The 50 recorded ultra-marathon swims averaged 96 miles, and one bear was able to swim nearly 220 miles, according to the study results. The duration of the long-distance swims lasted from most of a day to nearly 10 days, according to the study.
The bears’ movements were tracked using global positioning system collars. All the animals in the study were females because male polar bear necks are too thick for GPS-equipped collars, said Karen Oakley, a supervising biologist at the USGS Alaska Science Center.

Many of the polar bears in the study had young cubs with them, and it appears that at least some of the cubs – which were not collared – might have been able to keep up with their mothers in the water, USGS officials said.

The scientists were able to track 10 of the studied bears within a year of collaring and found that six still had their cubs, the lead scientist said in a statement released by the USGS.

These observations suggest that some cubs are also capable of swimming long distances. For the other four females with cubs, we don’t know if they lost their cubs before, during, or at some point after their long swims,” Anthony Pagano, a USGS scientist and lead author of the study, said in the statement.

It should be noted that the “period of extreme summer-ice retreat” is normal and happens every summer in the Arctic and has nothing to do with “climate change“!

The extremists LOVE to show a picture of a polar bear floating on ice, presumably stranded by global warming, and the fact there is no more ice in the Arctic. NOW you know that if a bear is floating on a piece of ice, she is simply taking a break! There is plenty of ice in the frozen north, and that bear is just fine!

Now on to “Earth Day” 1970

We’ve used several sources, including Jon Gabriel and IHateTheMedia to compile a list of predictions the environmental extremists and political fascists [but I repeat myself] predicted. You’ll find my comments in […] and bold after many of them!

**We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”
• Kenneth Watt, ecologist

**Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist

[ It’s 45 years later and we are still going strong!]

**We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
• Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist

[The earth is more inhabitable now than at any time in history. Yea technology!]

**Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” • New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

This is actually TRUE! However, ignorant people confuse pollution and the general disregard for our environment, an actual issue in 1970, and the outright HOAX that is now being perpetrated by extremists, fascists, and billionaires looking to make even more money off the biggest scam in human history.

As a child I first heard the word “ecology” around 1969 or 1970, in school. There were serious problems with actual pollution in the United States as well as the rest of the world. Raw sewage and industrial chemicals were routinely dumped in rivers, lakes, and streams. It wasn’t uncommon to see people throw trash out their car windows while driving down the road!

There was a massive campaign to not only stop the dangerous practices of chemical dumping, and littering, but to clean up the damage already done. In some places we are still working on the cleanup, but America is much cleaner. Nothing is perfect, but people were made more aware and bad habits were changed. That’s a very good thing!]

**Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

**By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

[Ehrlich is the author of “The Population Bomb a book that predicted a population explosion that would end the world. He, along with Al Gore, Ted Turner and other extremist nut jobs have declared we should reduced the entire world’s population to roughly 100 million, in order to “save” the planet. There are roughly 320 million people living in the United States alone. Depending on which agency you believe, there are between 7 and 7.5 BILLION people on earth today!

Technology has allowed the development of greater sources of food from smaller plots of land. One of the biggest developments came well before Ehrlich’s wild eyed prediction. In the early 1960’s a man named Norman Borlaug created a genetically modified [GMO] strain of wheat, called Dwarf Wheat. In most of the less developed world, normal wheat would grow tall, and since there was a lack of machinery to harvest it in a timely manner, rot in the fields, as the wheat stalks simply bent over and lay on the ground. Dwarf Wheat stands erect, and allows for the manual harvesting of the crop, and gives field workers more time to do it.

It is said that, and Borlaug is credited with, saving ONE BILLION lives with his amazing creation! Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize [back when that thing meant something] as well as the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to name a few honors. This is one of the greatest advancements in history and everyone should read up on Borlaug and his Dwarf Wheat]

*** FUN FACT: Though extremists claim the earth is “out of room” for it’s population, the entire world’s population could fit in a land mass the size of Texas!

**It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

[The only people starving in the United States are the poor school kids who are forced to eat the lunches Michelle Obama thinks they should! -Search online for photos of these “fine dining” options the First Lady has provided!

So-called “scientists” tell us that obesity, or TOO MUCH FOOD is one of the greatest crisis mankind is facing these days!]

**Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.
• Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

[Yeah, didn’t happen!]

**Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….
Life Magazine, January 1970

[in reality, according to multiply government studies, the quality of air in the United States has never been better! NOW the extremists claim we are getting TOO MUCH sun!!!! That said, places like China, which has fewer standards and overcrowded cities, are still facing air quality issues. This is an issue of poor standards not “climate change.”]

**At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[See above]

**We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”
• Martin Litton, Sierra Club director

[Total bullshit! We are still finding new resources for energy]

**By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[Extremists continue to push the outright LIE that we are “running out of oil As I reported in an article entitled 2 Trillion Barrels of American Oil: Why Wealthy Arab Oil Sheiks Are Funding Matt Damon’s Anti-Fracking Propaganda Film

While total world resources of oil shale are conservatively estimated at 2.6 trillion barrels, The United States sits on TWO TRILLION barrels of that crude. More than all of the crude that was ever produced worldwide since the petroleum age began.

[In the article I also noted there was a recent find of 1.67 QUADRILLION (1670 TRILLION) cubic feet of natural gas in the Arctic and …. :

Another staggering number is found in the Green River Formation in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. There is said to be 1.5 trillion barrels of oil, or 6 times what is held in all of Saudi Arabia.

There is so much oil in the Bakken Shale deposits in North Dakota, private investors are looking to build a $1.8 billion pipeline from North Dakota to Oklahoma. A hefty investment and a huge jobs program at a time we need a huge jobs program.

[Add in roughly 250 years worth of coal deposits, and the United States has enough oil and natural gas to be 100% energy independent for the next 500 to 800 years, depending on consumption rates.]

**Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.
• Sen. Gaylord Nelson

[So ridiculous that it’s hard to know what to say, EXCEPT that scientists are still discovering hundreds of new species on land and in the world’s oceans every single year! (Look it up) The earth is as vibrant and alive as anytime in recorded history!]

**The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[Now these loons tell us the world is about to spontaneously combust from all the heat!]

** “[One] theory assumes that the earth’s cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun’s heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” — Newsweek Magazine

[Again, these same crackpots and scam artists are NOW telling us that all of these things that were supposed to create a new and civilization destroying Ice Age, are now causing global warming! (or as they now call it “climate change” so as to cover ANY imaginary calamity]

You will be bombarded with absolute hysteria and bullshit today. You will be told the world will end in just a few short years if you don’t turn over complete control of you life, as well as your wallet, to these extremists. Don’t fall for it.

Life is good. Damn good!!

Go out and enjoy it!

Rubio (If President): DACA Would End at Some Point, Immigration Reform Pass, Millions Would Not Be Deported

marco getty

By Isabel Matos

Whew! The beginning of this interview caused quite a stir this weekend. It sounds like a slight error but knowing Univision and its history with Rubio (see next article), it was right to have it clarified. Rubio was reported to have said that the president’s DACA was important, but the translation used from media service Grabien in the original Breitbart News article read: “I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it.” The source that came forward from Rubio’s camp said even Univision’s translation was a little imprecise, and that Rubio’s word-for-word translation should have been “But DACA, I think it’s important not to cancel it from one moment to the next because you already have people benefiting from it.” The transcript below is the one from Univision which I corrected in bold. The tape with imprecise subtitles is on their site.

Program: Al Punto with Jorge Ramos
Content: Interview with Senator Marco Rubio
Air Date: Sunday, April 19, 2015

JR: Senator Marco Rubio, thank you for speaking with us.
 
SMR: Thank you very much, Jorge.
 
JR: Senator, in your book you talk about how excited you were by Barack Obama’s campaign. Nonetheless, Barack Obama did not run as an African-American candidate. You have decided not to run as a Hispanic candidate. Why?
 
SMR:
Well, obviously I’m Hispanic. My heritage, that of my parents, both of them were from Cuba, and obviously, I was raised in a Hispanic community. I think that my message and our policies are policies that apply to every American. There’s no doubt that the Hispanic community is a community of hardworking people, people who are seeking to improve their lives. I do think that our message has a special impact on that community because many of them identify with that story. But I obviously think that it’s a message that applies to everyone and that a president has to work for everyone.
 
JR: As you know, it has always been hard for Republicans to get the Hispanic vote. I wanted to talk with you about very concrete issues that affect Hispanics directly. I would like to start with the issue of deferred action and DACA. If you made it to the White House, would you keep the DACA program; that is, Deferred Action for the Dreamers, and would you keep President Barack Obama’s executive action, which would benefit more than four million undocumented people?
 
SMR:
Well, DACA is going to have to end at some point. I wouldn’t undo it immediately. The reason is that there are already people who have that permission, who are working, who are studying, and I don’t think it would be fair to cancel it suddenly.
But I do think it is going to have to end. And, God willing, it’s going to end because immigration reform is going to pass. DAPA hasn’t yet taken effect, and I think it has impeded progress on immigration, on immigration reform. And since that program hasn’t taken effect yet, I would cancel it. 
But DACA, I think it is important; it can’t be cancelled suddenly because there are already people who are benefiting from it. [This should read:  “But DACA, I think it’s important not to cancel it from one moment to the next because you already have people benefiting from it.”;
But it is going to have to end. It cannot be the permanent policy of the United States. And I don’t think that’s what they’re asking for, either. I think that everyone prefers immigration reform. 
 
JR: But then, to clarify, you would end DACA once immigration reform is approved. But what happens, Senator, if there is no immigration reform? Would you cancel DACA anyway?
 
SMR:
At some point it’s going to have to end. That is, it cannot continue to be the permanent policy of the United States. I do think that if I wind up being president, it will be possible to achieve new immigration reform. It won’t be possible for it to be comprehensive; that is, they are not going to be able to do everything in one massive bill. We already tried that a couple of years ago. We have seen that the political support isn’t there, and I think we’ve spent a lot of time on this process when we could have started moving forward through the three steps that I advocated. Unfortunately, a lot of time has been wasted on that. It has become an even more controversial issue; harder to move forward on that issue. But I still say that it’s important to modernize our system, and that means improving the way we enforce it in the future, to modernize the immigration system so that it’s not so costly and bureaucratic. And we have to deal with 12 million human beings who are already here. And nobody, nobody is advocating a plan to deport12 million human beings. So that issue has to be dealt with, as well.
 
JR: When you announced your candidacy, outside of the building where you announced it, there were a lot of Dreamers, protesting. And then there are some immigrant organizations that have criticized your candidacy. America’s Voice says that you have anti-immigrant positions. I would like to ask you, you were in favor of an immigration reform bill in the Senate, and you voted for it. But today, would you vote in favor of a path to legalization for 11 million undocumented people?
 
SMR:
Well, that can’t be done today for the following reason. I don’t think we can. I have been very clear. I, through that two-year experience, it’s very clear to me. We’re not going to have the votes or the necessary political support in Congress. Today, in some sectors of the American public, in order to move forward on this issue, unless we first prove to the American people that in the future there’s not going to be another
immigration crisis. If we do that, I think that undoubtedly the political support is going to exist to do legalization as you have said. It has to be a process similar to what we advocated in the legislation that I sponsored, and it’s the law that says that, first, the things we’re all familiar with must be present: a background check, pay a fine, begin to pay taxes, get a work permit, and after 10 years, they can apply for their residency. That would be the process, but we can’t get to that point. Politically, the support and the votes in Congress aren’t there until we prove to those members of Congress and the American people that immigration laws are going to be enforced.
 
JR:
Senator, I want to ask you about Cuba. I know it’s an issue close to your heart, since both your parents are Cuban immigrants. Nonetheless, the majority of Cuban-Americans agree with ending the embargo, and they also agree, according to the polls,with this new approach of President Barack Obama to Cuba. If you reached the White House and were president, would you cut relations with Cuba? And what do you think about President Barack Obama’s calling Raúl Castro “president”?
 
SMR:
Well, he isn’t a president. He can call himself whatever he likes, but RaúlCastro hasn’t been elected to absolutely anything. He is tyrant and a dictator. In terms of relations with Cuba, right? I would like to have relations with a free, democratic Cuba, or a country that’s making progress toward that. And that doesn’t exist. The Cuban people are the only people in Latin America who haven’t had free elections in more than 50 years. I think that is unfair, and I think the Cuban people deserve that. In my opinion, I say that it’s still a government that supports terrorism. Just today we’ve seen, this week we’ve seen the news that the FARC have again kidnapped and killed 10 people in Colombia. That is a group that receives help and support and shelter from the Cuban government.
 
JR:
Would you cut relations with Cuba? If you reach the White House, you’ll cut relations?
 
SMR:
Unless it’s a democratic country or it starts taking concrete steps toward democracy, of course.
 
JR: Senator, you are the youngest candidate among those who have run or will run, 43 years old. But  —
 
SMR: 44 next month, Jorge.
 
JR: 44 next month. However, you have certain positions; for example, you’re against same-sex marriage, which is not what most young people believe in, according to the polls. Are you afraid of being portrayed in the media as an old young man, as some people in Latin America say?
 
SMR:
Well, I don’t believe that’s true. A significant percentage of Americans support my position on marriage between a woman and a man. I understand that there are discrepancies and a change of attitude, and I believe that if people want to change the laws about marriage in a democracy, in a republic, they can do so through their state legislatures. The states have always regulated marriage and can continue to do so. I believe that if the attitude in the country has changed, well, there is a democratic process through which they can make that change. What I don’t support is for the courts to determine this issue because I don’t think it’s up to the courts. I think it’s up to the political branch of each state to decide how it wants to regulate and how to define marriage laws.

 
JR:
And I’ll finish with a more personal question, Senator. We have had first ladies with very defined personalities: Michelle Obama, for example, or Hillary Clinton.Your wife Jeanette is Colombian-American. What would Jeanette be like as a first lady?
 
SMR: I think she would be excellent. She has a heart for issues, for example, the trafficking of human beings, which is a crisis today throughout the world. A person who is also interested in children’s issues and education. And also a person who, to me, is a great mother, a great wife, which is also important, right? Because having stability in the family is critical for being able to do the job well as a team. I would also consider her partof that team. But I believe that the country is going to love Jeanette when it gets to know her better.
 
JR: And that image that came out of you with your four children, to many,even if they were from the other political party, it reminded them of President John F.Kennedy.
 
SMR: Well, a figure from different times, undoubtedly. Former President Kennedy had a beautiful family as well. It’s more than an honor to know his daughter, who is now the ambassador to Japan. But, again, I believe it is important, that people want to know where you came from, what your family is like. And as we say, “My children are Colom-ban,” which is a combination of Colombian and Cuban, a very good
combination.
 
JR: Senator, thanks for speaking with us and I hope we can continue this conversation throughout the campaign. Thank you.
 
SMR: Thank you very much, Jorge.

A Shady Bunch! GOPe Amnesty is Out of the Shadows and in our Living Rooms

priebusThe Shady Bunch

By Isabel Matos

I hate Bipartisanship! Part 2 (new video). I have to be brutally honest. I have been a bit bored lately and used the time to translate some clips I found while surfing through channels on Youtube. This one is on pro-amnesty journalist Jorge Ramos’s show, ‘Al Punto’ where Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart appears with community organizer Luis V. Gutierrez to give an update on the push for amnesty.  Yes, it is from last year, but if you see this like I do, you won’t be jaded. I promise. It’s always jaw-dropping to feel like a fly on a wall during a sneaky conversation, especially when the conversation reveals how a deal is being cut in DC by representatives. (Where are our hard-hitting news anchors on this issue? And why isn’t there more pressure for them to answer to us, not Ramos?) Diaz-Balart represents many Venezuelans in his district, but amnesty is never a win for Republicans. He is Cuban-American and supposedly anti-communist, just like my two other representatives, so there is no excuse for this. It is shady!

With the help of one or two Congressmen at a time, communist agitator Gutierrez gets what he wants. Seeing him work the host and his colleague is entertaining (at least to me it is), but the reality is that we are, unfortunately, witnessing the GOPe getting very comfortable being out of the shadows on this issue. John Boehner has always been pro-amnesty as Diaz-Balart attests to, but has held it back because of internal issues in our party. Despite our pressure, we lost the latest fight earlier this year on the same day Republicans greeted Netanyahu and won some praise. They allowed the funding of a DHS bill without provisions for stopping DACA or Obama’s Executive Action for two years.

We cannot get tired of calling out Republicans on this. We have to be as pernicious and consistent as our foe, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, shows. Again, it’s been a few slow days news-wise even with the presidential announcements.. kind of a lull, but I hope you enjoy this behind-the- scenes (sort of..) peek proving Boehner’s duplicity we have complained about all along, the embarrassing way some Republicans from the party that Bush has built have fought for this, and the way the extortionists are working them and hurting our country. Please remember that Jeb is scheduled to keynote with Gutierrez at a pro-amnesty Hispanic convention two weeks from today. I just can’t wait. [Yes, I can!]

RNC News Update:

WASHINGTON – The RNC announced that it has sanctioned nine debates from August 2015 through March 1, 2016. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus presented a clear vision for the debate process, including the dates, locations and sponsors.

The nine debates sanctioned between schedule is listed below:

1. Fox News – August 2015 – Ohio
2. CNN – September 2015 – California

5. CNN – December 2015 – Nevada
6. Fox News – January 2016 – Iowa
7. ABC News – February 2016 – New Hampshire
8. CBS News – February 2016 – South Carolina

***

Can you guess which networks are pro-amnesty? The fix has been in. It’s time to keep this topic in the forefront of our conversation and the pressure on all representative, especially with all the distractions we shall be experiencing with the presidential hopeful campaigns in 2016.

I Hate Bipartisanship!

By Isabel Matos

QUE VIVA LUIS GUTIERREZ! (Not, of course!)

“I am for a completely free and democratic society in Cuba!”

Well, if you missed April Fool’s day this would have sounded like a joke, but he said it. He of course he lied. So this is what we get for Bipartisanship? I know just a few days ago Luis Gutierrez got shouted off stage by patriots but our GOP keeps sends him shout outs instead. Heck, Jeb Bush is going to keynote with Gutierrez later this month and the GOP’s losing strategy is OUT of the SHADOWS. It’s not the first local appearance of Ileana with Luis in Spanish (I don’t watch television all the time), but DACA proponent Ros-Lehtinen is doing dirty work we don’t want her to so it’s time to amp up the effort to expose her. Diaz-Balart has made several appearances with Gutierrez as well as Ryan in 2013.

Bless Luis’s heart (the <sarc> way) for speaking out against human rights violations in Cuba. It’s just what the country needed. One more person to hijack the cause to further the problem. It’s enough to make you vomit profusely, bleed through tears or all the pores in your body.  While pointing out Obama’s omissions in the SOTU speech (too mild of course) one is entertained by Luis’s expressions and effort to contain himself. She stands by dutifully and goes from doting, to a bit dazed, to a little frisky even, but very lucid.  And then. The Group Hug. Or should I scramble the word to just say GUH or UGH on that hug!

Ileana is a great spirit, smart and with boundless energy, but she is Jeb Bush’s water carrier, make no mistake. She has not lost her mind. This is loyalty over decades (at our expense though). Rubio will be here on the 13th but she will not support his 2016 run.  Politicians do things with disregard to the world around them. That is Ileana. She’s happy.  Loyal. Nothing will come between her and Jeb. Not Cuba. Not communism. Not this country. Not corruption. It sucks.

Remember when Rubio said one thing in English another in Spanish and it was caught? I don’t think this is the case. She has been consistent on this issue, but she does use the title of freedom for Cuban in Spanish on her channel. Maybe that is why I hate bipartisanship, nothing gets done, or one just ends up settling for just words. Symbolism is 0kay sometimes, and Luis’s comment did make a headline in this story, but all Ros got in exchange for amnesty was a bone thrown at her (and Cubans). She has made a livelihood of this. Here’s the title:

En Telemundo, Ros-Lehtinen Dice Que La Dictadura Castrista Sigue Sus Tácticas De Represión En Cuba  (In Telemundo, Ros-Lehtinen Says The Castro Dictatorship Continues its Tactics of Repression)

If you can bypass the privacy issue, try to check out: Obama’s latest Executive Action on Immigration.

The Cuban-American Dream IS the American Dream and GOP Corrupted It

before after

Before and After: How our cause for freedom has been corrupted. 

By Isabel Matos 

The Cuban-American Dream is the American dream and it has been corrupted by the GOPe. This clip connects a brief account of my family’s experience in exile and that of many families like us in the United States, with the push for a corrupt and politically motivated agenda: Amnesty. There is an important historical lesson that should alarm anyone who cares about the direction this country is headed because of the Republican party’s corruption. Obama wants to legalize illegals, but the GOPe is collaborating with communist amnesty activists and agitators. [Last summer Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise for voting against a border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.] I was asked to amplify on the last segment which I hope you enjoy. 

The next segment will be the appearance on Telemundo mentioned in the clip. It needs to be translated, so it will be published shortly. Thank you for viewing and sharing if you like it. A pathway to citizenship is code for amnesty (you know that) and it is a part of the communist plan to turn our system into a Democrat majority, or one-party system, and our GOPe is selling us out.

My Spanish is not good, but one thing is for sure, unlike Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and the other little crapweasels who say one thing in English and the exact opposite in Spanish, Ted Cruz is giving the Spanish speaking audience the exact same message he is giving the rest of us. Liberty and Freedom for all!
