Climate Talking Points For Trump

bi-polar GoreI was on the Charles Butler show this morning (starts at around 28:00) and he said he would forward some key climate talking points over to the @realDonaldTrump campaign. Democrats are very organized with their climate talking points, and have the media trained as attack dogs. Their  propaganda is easily countered by a few simple points.

Almost all of our heat, light, cooling, communication and transportation is done using fossil fuels. All of our food and medicine is transported using fossil fuels. Without fossil fuels, every tree would get cut down by people needing to burn wood for warmth. The air would be thick with smoke like China.

People would be starving to death and freezing in the winter. There would be no Internet, mass transit or communications. If we “keep it in the ground” or “make electricity prices skyrocket” like Democrats want to do,  it would be an immediate catastrophe like nothing mankind has ever faced.

1. There is no 97% consensus of scientists. In a recent survey of the professional members of the American Meteorological Society, only 52% believed that global warming was primarily man-made – much less dangerous.

2. Heatwaves are not getting worse. According to the EPA, the worst heatwaves in the US (by far) occurred during the 1930’s – when the Midwest commonly saw temperatures over 110 degrees, and as high as 120 degrees.

3. Droughts are not getting worse. According to NOAA, the US has been getting steadily wetter over the past century.

4. Scientists say that California has had much more severe droughts in the past, lasting as long as 200 years. The past 100 years was the wettest century on record in California.

5. Hurricanes are not getting worse. The US is experiencing a record quiet period for hurricanes.

No hurricanes have entered or developed in the Gulf of Mexico since September 2013, a stretch of well over 1,000 days. By the end of this week, the streak will be the longest on record, dating to the 1800s.

6. According to the Danish Meteorological Institute, the Arctic Ocean is full of thick ice. There is more ice on the Russian side than there has been in years, and a group of global warming sailors are currently blocked by impenetrable ice in the Northeast Passage.

7. Polar Bear populations are not decreasing.

8. Sea level has been rising for 20,000 years, since the end of the last ice age. Most of that time much faster than now. It has nothing to do with humans.

9. According to NOAA, sea level is only rising 1.7 to 1.8 mm/year. At that rate, it will take thousands of years for Manhattan to drown.

the absolute global sea level rise is believed to be 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year.

10. According to NOAA, sea level at Manhattan has been rising at about the same rate (2.8 mm/year) since the 1850’s. There is no indication that humans are affecting the rate of sea level rise.

11. Glaciers have been melting for a very long time. In 1879, John Muir found that Alaska’s largest glacier had retreated 48 miles since 1794. 20,000 years ago, Chicago was buried under a mile of glacial ice.

12. Forest fires are not getting worse. According to USDA, the US had five times as much burn acreage in the 1930’s as we do now. The New York Times confirmed this.

    Point #1 should be: NOONE has ever proven the mere EXISTENCE of AGW! There is no such study, book, article — NOTHING! Patrick Moore has pointed it out to the lunatic Whitehouse during a testimony – that dolt didn’t even blink, it just went over his head.
    Whenever the issue comes up, the first order should be: SHOW ME THE SCIENCE BASED PROOF THAT AGW EVEN EXISTS!

    There is no historical correlation between C02 levels and climate. C02 is not a volatile gas. C02 exists in very small quantities (> 1%) in the atmosphere.

    Without ample C02 levels oxygen dependent life would be starving for oxygen & food. C02 is actually the ultimate GREEN gas.

    I would add as you well know that Antarctica is growing according to NASA and lowering sea level. Also Greenland is back to normal Ice mass this year and near normal last year which also reduces sea level rise.
