MAJORITY OF TV WEATHERMEN: MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING IS A CROCK
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 18, 2010
Someone ought to explain to both the enviro-fascists and global warming hysterians that a “greener” world will necessitate warmer temperatures. Generally speaking, plants, grass and trees have a predilection to “green up” when the mercury rises.
That’s sort of the whole concept behind spring and summer. (Note that crops – such as food – have a penchant for growing better in the summer time).
Oddly enough, corn, wheat, tomatoes and soy beans have high failure rates as winter crops. (The Earth has a tendency to be less kind to crops when the ground is cold).
It’s nuts, I know.
Perhaps the enviro-wackjobs might want to modify their battle cry from “Go Green!” to something more befitting, like “Go Brown!” or “Go Gray!”
And while there are many who do, in fact, believe the earth is warming to some extent, an ever-increasing number of folks do not think human activity is the cause of it – and that includes nearly seven in ten television meteorologists across the United States.
How’s that for an “ouch”?
Johnny Simpson at Digital Journal writes:
A recent CBS News report revealed a startling statistic: While more than half of all TV meteorologists believe global warming is occurring, less than a third believe it is caused by human activity.
And why exactly is that so “startling”?
I suppose for the same reason it continues to shock the mainstream media to learn that the majority of Americans support the new Arizona immigration law.
Libs live in a bubble.
Or maybe they simply never knew there were this many barbarians (i.e., conservatives, clear thinkers, patrons of common sense, etc.) out there.
From CBS News via Breitbart TV comes some surprising news: a joint George Mason University and University of Texas survey of TV meteorologists in America reveals that while more than half (54 percent) believe global warming is happening, less than a third (31 percent) believe it is caused by human activity, specifically man-made carbon emissions as determined by the IPCC and others.
TV weatherman Dan Satterfield, who was interviewed by CBS News for this report, is in the minority of TV weathermen and women who believe global warming is caused by human actions. “It used to be a mountain of evidence, and now it is a mountain range of evidence,” Mr. Satterfield told CBS News. “You put greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and the planet’s going to warm up. That’s a said and done fact.”
It’s also a fact that if one guzzles two gallons of bleach, he or she will most likely die. Or that if one naps on a subway track, he or she has an excellent chance of being killed by a train. Just because swallowing bleach and catnapping on train tracks can kill doesn’t mean it is a societal problem. The amount of “greenhouse gas” (i.e., carbon dioxide) being put into the atmosphere by humans is so infinitesimal as to be statistically irrelevant. There is simply no iron-clad proof of any kind – not a scintilla of evidence – that human beings are not only causing temperatures to rise but that in doing so, they are placing the planet in peril.
However, San Diego TV weathercaster and Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman begged to differ with Mr. Satterfield’s conclusions. “Everything they (GW scientists) do is based on carbon dioxide being a pollutant, a greenhouse gas. So if that is wrong, and I know it is, all of the others (conclusions) fall by the wayside.” Former NASA climate scientist Roy Spencer agreed with Mr. Coleman. “It’s my view that most global warming has been natural,” Mr. Spencer told CBS News. “Nature is perfectly capable of producing its own global warming and cooling.”
It in inconceivable to the purveyors of common sense that human beings could have such a catastrophic effect on the climate as to actually affect weather patterns. How exactly? If humanity wanted to – if we made it our mission to purposely warm the world in an attempt to thwart a coming Ice Age – we wouldn’t be able to make a dent. We could run every automobile until they were blue in the fenders – fly every airplane, keep every smokestack from every factory pumping out endless plumes of smoke – and the winters would still come, the rains would still fall and sun would still set in the West.
