With New Push, New Language: Now It’s “Climate Disruption”

The Obama administration last week released a grim report attempting to link disparate weather patterns to anthropogenic global warming (AGW). “Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” the report says. Unable to make the definitive scientific connection to AGW, the report concludes, “there is new and stronger evidence that many of these increases [extreme weather] are related to human activities.”

Predictably, with a noncompliant Congress, the president vows to use his pen to expand the Environmental Protection Agency’s power to wage a war on everything in our country that expels carbon dioxide. I wonder how the EPA will regulate our respiration, since we humans exhale it.

The president coined a new phrase as well. Gone are the references to “global warming,” since, according to NASA GIS data, we haven’t warmed since 1998. And gone is “climate change,” since we haven’t cooled appreciably since then either. The new catchphrase is “climate disruption” because that way, any extreme or aberrant weather can be blamed on human activity.

Surrounded by weathermen and meteorologists, the president said, “We’ve been sounding this urgency for the last five years.  If we don’t do more, we’re gonna have bigger problems, more risk of economic impact and more risk of extreme weather events that can result in people losing their lives or losing their properties or businesses.  And — and we’ve gotta have the public understand this is an issue that is gonna impact our kids and our grandkids unless we do something about it.”

I wish we had known how omnipotent the EPA was. Since the president is convinced he can control the environment and the climate, all future catastrophic hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, and droughts will be the fault of the EPA! And just think of all of the weather-related damage that has occurred since the 1970 creation of the EPA, all of which could have been prevented if only they had been given more power!

Meteorologist Anthony Watts said of the president’s new report: “To me, this looks more like a glossy sales pitch from a company that is pushing a product they know people may not need, but if marketed just right, it would be something they’d buy.” He concludes with the tongue-in-cheek question, “Who wouldn’t want better weather? Just buy our product.”

Dr. Roger Pielke, a Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, was more academic in his response. “The report effectively implies that there is no climate change other than what is caused by humans, and that extreme weather events are equivalent to climate change…This issue was clearly refuted in National Research Council, 2005: Radiative forcing of climate change.”

The NIPCC, the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, which is a group of over 50 atmospheric scientists that does not receive any government or corporate funding, and acts as an independent auditor of its U.N. counterpart, had a report of their own that they rolled out a few months ago. They stated many empirically valid conclusions, including, “Global temperatures stopped rising 15 years ago despite rising levels of carbon dioxide, which the IPCC claims is responsible for Global Warming.”

    You know what makes this so ridiculous? is that fact that is the U.S.A. the only one who polluting the world? What about the other Countries? How about China for one, I understand they have an air pollution problem, how come no one says anything to them? Why is the U.S, Gov’t. the only one getting on us. It think it’s pretty obvious this is a “scam” to collect more tax money out of us.
    I don’t believe any of this so-called “Climate change” B.S.
    Think about it, That “Carbon Foot Print” junk is just what it is, B.S.

    How about climate idiocy. Those that push this nonsense and those that believe it should take their heads out of their tushes and give their brains some air.

    ….The only adjustment we need is to stay away from the sins of this world ! Do that, and the curse for sins will cease ! Not all curses are the same, many come in the form of storms and devastation !
    …Instead of knowing the real problem, we spend millions and think we can buy our way out ! That will not happen !
    …My prayers go out to those affected by devastating whirlwinds in different places ! But do we see why? Mandating new laws to teach this filth in the schools ? Passing out condoms? Teaching gay life styles? Gay marriage? Propagandizing our children to the evils in schools by this sin sick system? Porn everywhere? We were warned this would happen “As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be!” We blame it on global warming and keep the wickedness alive. It’s for the wickedness God allows terrible storms to gather !
    …They say God is dead, then why are there still whirlwinds He instructs to do what they do? In ignorance we tag whirlwinds with names, but they are the act of God !
    …There is a power out there beyond Man’s control, it’s much more then what the media states as to what is actually happening! I said it last year ! This year will be the worst of storms yet ! No one has to be a prophet to know that ! God’s statement to mankind is already written and He does not lie !
    …( Each “deadly storm is saying “Learn of me and turn from your wicked ways”! ) It’s not man that controls the elements or storms, for proof we only need to read what our God states to Job and others, It’s the same message for us today ! Trust His words, not ours.. When they refuse to hear it all gets worse !
    …Most make excuses with, cold fronts this and warm fronts that and this happened because of this and that ! Well here is a flash for the media ! “GOD! uses the elements” He created in the first place to do His bidding ! …Job 37: 9-17 Out of the south comes the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. “By the breath of God frost is given”: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: “he scatters his bright cloud: And it is turned round about “by his counsels”:” that they may do whatsoever “he commands them upon the face of the world in the earth.” While we spend millions on global warming ? If God never cleaned our air the way He does, we would all be dead today ! “God causes it to come”, (three things) whether “for correction”, (Fall on the heads of the wicked) or “for his land”, and for mercy ! (Like a giant vacuum sweeper to clean polluted air!) or “for (warning the people !). Listen unto this, stand still, and “consider the wondrous works of God”. Do you know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine? Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? Jer 23:19 Behold, “a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury”, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. 20: The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the (latter days) ye shall consider it perfectly. ( Are we ? )
    …. We are not ! They will get worse until the people are on their knees ! ! But will they do that?
    People blame me for saying it, but I did not ! It;s just there for us “if” we listen .. This is not old ! It is ongoing infomation he gave years ago and he changes not ! We throw more money at foolish man-made ideas and God still allows the wrath to come with storms !
