James Hansen, director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and eco-fascist, predicts that the warming of the Earth is happening and his “projections about increasing global temperature have been proved true. But I failed to fully explore how quickly that average rise would drive an increase in extreme weather .”
The alarmist scientists claim that the global temperature has risen an estimated 0.8 degrees Celsius because of recent extreme events that are occurring with more frequency.
The study, headed by Professor Richard Muller, physicist with the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) was startled by the findings and commented: “We were not expecting this, but as scientists, it is our duty to let the evidence change our minds.” Muller, once a skeptic, now claims he is “converted”.
The team of scientists at Berkeley used data provided by NASA, NOAA and various weather station records.
Fundingfor the project partly comes from the Charles G Koch Charitable Foundation. Another $100,000 in monies was provided by the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research which was created by Bill Gates.
The most startling “evidence” in favor of man-made climate change is funded by many globalist organizations who are also heavily investing in geoengineering projects to alter the weather of the Earth in support of their false claims.
Andrew Weaver, professor and supporter of Hansen, calls his study excellent “and re-frames the question.”
In his paper, Hansen says “some additional warming will occur over the next few decades. However, we can slow, halt and reverse global warming over a period of several decades.
The key requirement is to stop subsidizing fossil fuels and to begin to collect a fee from fossil fuel companies in proportion to the amount of carbon they are putting into the air.”
Carbon dioxide, being monitored in the Arctic by alarmist scientists, is being measured at 400 parts per million of the heat-trapping gas in the atmosphere.
Klaus–Ekart Puls, physicist and meteorologist, has analyzed the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claim that regulating CO2 will “regulate climate change.”
Puls found that the IPCC’s assertion is based on “speculative model projections, so-called scenarios – and not prognoses. Because of climate’s high complexity, reliable prognoses just aren’t possible.”
Puls agrees that sea levels have risen, however “it’s important to remember that mean sea level is a calculated magnitude, and not a measured one. There are a great number of factors that influence sea level, e.g. tectonic processes, continental shifting, wind currents, passats, and volcanoes. Climate change is only one of ten factors.”
The American Geophysical Union commented on research into the melting of ice sheets that: “It turns out that past studies, which were based on computer models without any direct data for comparison or guidance, overestimate the water temperatures and extent of melting beneath the Fimbul Ice Shelf [in the Antarctic].
This has led to the misconception, Hattermann said, that the ice shelf is losing mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass, leading to an overall loss of mass. The team’s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted . . .”
In response to climate change, the UN, governments and private corporations have collaborated on geoengineering projects claiming to combat the effects of global warming. However, a team of European scientists are saying that geoengineering will cause serious global droughts.
The artificial reduction of sunlight on the planet’s surface will create the problems that alarmists are claiming is being caused by human expulsion of CO2.
The authors of the study say that their computer models are not “meant to give realistic ideas about potential applications of climate engineering . . . [but] possible adverse effects that could come of such designed changes to the Earth’s climate.”
Bill Gates and Daniel Keith have joined forces to support the spraying of thousands of tons of sun-reflecting synthetic sulfate aerosols into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight back out into space.
Although scientists are asserting that this action will alter earth’s natural weather patterns while environmental groups decry that geoengineering nullifies their efforts to purport their campaigns to convince the public that man-made climate change is directly causational to human emissions of CO2.
Keith manages the million-dollar geoengineering research that is funded by Bill Gates and the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research. These monies come directly from Gates’ personal funds.
Mainstream media reports that the Greenland Ice Sheet is melting at an exorbitant rate, which will free 240 billion tons of fresh water into the oceans annually.
The IPCC is focusing on this as a cause for more alarm. Havoc will be realized as New York City will see seas rising which may displace residents and cause massive damage.
However, Danish researchers have studied archival photos to compare current claims of rapid melting.
Kurt Kjaer, led author of the study and professor at the University of Copenhagen, stated that the glacier is melting and reforming at a normal rate and therefore “it’s wrong to use the current melting rate to make predictions about sea level rise in the coming century, as some studies have done.”

Climate change driving Australian fish south
By Agence France-Presse

Australian scientists said Friday there was now “striking evidence” of extensive southward migration of tropical fish and declines in other species due to climate change, in a major ocean report card.
Compiled by more than 80 of Australia’s leading marine experts for the government science body CSIRO, the snapshot of global warming’s effects on the island continent’s oceans warned of “significant impacts”.
“Climate change is already happening; widespread physical changes include rapid warming of the southeast and increasing flow of the east Australia current,” the report said.
“There is now striking evidence of extensive southward movements of tropical fish and plankton species in southeast Australia, declines in abundance of temperate species, and the first signs of the effect of ocean acidification on marine species with shells.”
The report described southeast Australia as a “global warming hotspot”, with the contraction south and strengthening of southern hemisphere winds causing the eastern current to become more intense and also warmer.
“A range of species including plankton, fish and invertebrates are now found further south because of the enhanced transport of larvae and juveniles in the stronger (current) and the high rate of regional warming,” it said.
Sea snakes were declining and warmer beaches were changing turtle breeding habits and seabird and marine mammal feeding and mating, it added.
Coral reefs had experienced increasing thermal bleaching in the past 30 years and that was projected to become more frequent and severe, “leading to chronic degradation of most coral reefs by the middle to late parts of the century.”
Though there were some “concerning findings”, project leader Elvira Poloczanska said there were some positives, with new research suggesting that certain tropical fish species were better equipped to adapt to warming than previously thought.
“Whether such acclimation capacity is widespread in tropical marine fishes and whether some critical processes (such as) reproduction remain significantly impaired is unknown.”
Poloczanska said Australia had some unique marine ecosystems and they provided “irreplaceable services including coastal defence, oxygen production, nutrient recycling and climate regulation”.
“Every second breath of oxygen we breathe is provided by marine plants; they provide protein when we eat fish and also relaxation such as when we go swimming,” she said.
“It’s important we make decisions about the future.”
Study: News networks largely ignored climate change during hottest month ever

Even amid July’s record-breaking heat wave, America’s most-watched news networks largely ignored the subject of climate change, according to a study by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters.
Media Matters found that ABC and CNN were the worst offenders, with just 2 percent and 4 percent of their extreme weather coverage carrying any mention of climate change, respectively. The left-leaning network MSNBC was the only network to discuss climate change in almost all of its segments on extreme weather during the month of July, the study added.
Surprisingly, the right-leaning Fox News Channel came in second place, but that’s not saying much: only 16 percent of the network’s extreme weather coverage mentioned climate change. CBS and NBC placed third and fourth, at 15 percent and 11 percent.
Overall, Media Matters said that just 6 percent of television segments that actually mentioned climate change touched upon the indisputable fact that human activity is changing the carbon composition of Earth’s atmosphere.
A previous Media Matters analysis also found a significant decline in climate news coverage on broadcast networks between 2009 and 2011, representing a drop of more than 80 percent. The Sunday morning news programs saw the most precipitous dropoff, going from devoting a total of 21 minutes in 2009 to just 9 minutes in 2011.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that July 2012 was the hottest month in recorded history, with Americans suffering under a heat wave that actually eclipsed the worst year of the nation’s “dust bowl” period of the 1930s, when heat, drought and wind joined forces to frequently cover most of the country in massive dust storms.
Dr. James Hansen, NASA’s top climate scientist and a committed activist who’s previously been arrested committing civil disobedience at the White House, warned in a new study released earlier this month (PDF) that unless humanity begins taking dramatic steps to reduce emissions and transition to clean, renewable energy in the near term, a rise in global average temperatures of just 3°C by the end of the century will cause up to 50 percent of all species on Earth to go extinct.
Despite the growing threat, U.S. climate negotiators last week called for additional “flexibility” on carbon reduction goals, sparking outrage from their counterparts representing Europe and many small island nations, some of which are presently threatened by gradually rising sea levels.
