Sanders’ Christmas Global Warming Alarmism Gets Debunked By Professor On Twitter

sanders tweetBernie Sanders stated on Twitter Monday that “nobody can recall” 65-degree temperatures on Christmas Eve, only to be “berned” by an engineering professor, who promptly listed six prior occasions.

The warm Christmas weather on the East Coast wasn’t an anomaly by historic standards, as shown by the professor. The National Weather Service backs up the professor’s claim by reporting that Christmas Eve temperatures in the District of Columbia were above 65 degrees in 1964, 1982, 1965, 1932, 1889, and 1893.

The warmest winters in American history occurred from 1950-1954, when nearly one out of four January days was over 60 degrees. Recent January averages show that only one out of every six days is over 60 degrees.

Bernie Sanders’s claim also ignores analysis by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). When asked by National Public Radio if global warming was playing a role in recent warm winter temperatures, the deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center Mike Halpert responded:

If it is, it’s probably fairly insignificant at this point. If it were to play a role, it would be more likely if, somehow, climate change is impacting either the Arctic oscillation or El Nino, and we’re not really aware that it is at this point. If you think about, maybe – the high temperature over the weekend was 70, so maybe without climate change, it would’ve been 69. I think it’s a fairly insignificant role, if any role at all.

Halpert says the unseasonably warm weather is due to an “arctic oscillation,” which traps cold air in the Artic. An unusually strong El Nino, a climate event which causes ocean temperatures to rise, is also responsible. Both weather events are not related to global warming.

    Sanders was having a seniors moment obviously . If he thinks he can bull shit people
    about the weather what else is he capable of ?

    Perhaps he is so far out of it he has decide to go Trump and just say what ever to keep the last embers of his campaign alive a few days longer .

    Why are Democrat politicians so desperate to kiss a couple of billionaire butts and green wash ? Are they the only ones with conditions attached to the money ?

    The problem with most older folks that fall for the climate change business is that they apparently don’t remember what it was like in the 50’s and 60’s. Personally, I don’t know how on earth we ever survived. We didn’t have forced air heating. We had a gas stove in the middle of the first floor. We also didn’t have A/C. And it was hotter than blazes. Still live in the same region (never living more than 50 miles from where I was born) Nothing – and I [i]do[/i] mean [i][b]nothing[/b][/i] – has changed. There have been droughts, heat waves, and bitterly cold temps (like the “polar vortex”) through the years. Nothing but repeats of earlier times. And I’m not kidding about remembering those days either. Nothing different is going on now than what went on then.

    In addition to being totally negligent of basic economics, today’s “educated” young have a massive lapse in their understanding of the history of world socialism. What else can explain their new found love affair with Bernie?

    Socialism [b]always[/b] devolves into poverty and tyranny. The greater the socialist influence, the quicker the descent. Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot… The misery and atrocities committed in the name of socialism are beyond calculation, yet a new generation of “educated” young Americans have begun a naive love affair with Bernie Sanders and his “sophisticated” ideology.

    Lord save us.

    Sorry, but yhe real word for Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot… is that they are dictators.

    Here in Sweden we have some form of what you are calling “socialism”, combined with market economy. It is usually a good life live here.

    That is what Bernie Sanders is talking about.

    Dennis. I’ve been to Sweden. It’s a beautiful country. Compared to the US however, your country is culturally and ethnically very narrow. Sweden is successful [b]despite [/b]what socialism you have, and not [b]because[/b] of it.

    The US has a vastly different ethos, history, and commitment to free markets and individual liberty. The same degree of socialism employed here (which we are quickly approaching) mostly drags down our society. (In this case, I consider socialism to be the cradle-to-grave state support and intervention in everyday lives [u]beyond[/u] an effective commitment to what is often called a necessary basic “safety net”.)

    You also left out an important factor; those dictators i cited were [b]socialist/communist[/b] dictators… This is where socialism inevitably devolves – into uncontrolled state power and the loss of individual liberty and freedoms. Tyranny.

    I contend that “socialist” countries that have economic and societal success have that success in direct relation to the share of economic and individual freedoms that they maintain. The more socialism, the less success.

    Most importantly, consider socialism as exposed by Winston Churchill, [i]”The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”[/i] At its core, [u]state enforced[/u] socialism is contrary to human nature, contrary to the fundamental laws of economics, and antithetical to success.

    I have no problem whatsoever with what might be called “voluntary socialism”, which I and many others practice in our communities. This is the assumed social responsibility to ones neighbors via charity of many kinds. The trouble with socialism as it has come to be known however, is that people cannot be properly [u]forced[/u] into acts of charity, however tempting that wish may be.

    Bernie Sanders may look and act like your grandfather, but don’t be fooled. He would take socialism as far as he possibly could, destroying the US Constitution and its virtues in the process. He may not [i]be[/i] the tyrant, but he would make the path clear for those who would gladly accept the role.
