Obama Halts Global Warming by Executive Order

Why do they do this, what possible outcome do the think they will get. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again? This reminds me of the fiasco about the hole n the ozone layer. As a building engineer who worked with all types of refrigerants, I had to study and take a test to get accredited to actually work with refrigerants. The price of certain refrigerants skyrocketed beyond belief. Extra equipment had to purchased. But wouldn't you know, 12 years later the experts admitted that they were wrong about the cause of the ozone hole. You see, they first said that one molecule of R-12 would destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone. R-12 was most prevalent of the refrigerants.

I had that fraud pegged almost immediately. Freon (etc.) was supposed to be a /catalyst/ which helped destroy ozone, right? But a catalyst does not change a chemical reaction's result, it just speeds it up.
So if the Earth's oxygen / ozone is in equilibrium already, adding a catalyst would leave it in the same equilibrium! And if ozone broke down faster in the dark, it would re-form faster when the sun came up, and by the same factor!
But Freon 132 was a product of a Certain Chemical Corporation, which was a big contributor to the ozone-alarmist politicians. Big surprise, right?

Yeah, but they have never openly retracted the statements and policy that took us into the refrigerant hole... Which is how all this works. They make up the data (or interpret the data to give them the results they want) and then stick us with a set of federal laws and policy that drives the cost of living up. Then they find out later it was all a lie (they will call it a "misinterpretation of the data") but since they have already saddled us with the environmental law - we never get to roll back the clock.

You have correctly identified the demise of global warming. It will simply end and these people will move on to some other trendy scary scenario without culpability.

You pretty much have the game down pat Stan. The Enviro Nazis will get you every time.

Well, after the blizzard of 1978, they were all howling about a new ice age. Heck, in the 1973 oil crisis, all artesian wells of oil in the middle east were suppose to go dry by 2005. I guess I won't be cheating off these global warming folks for my NCAA brackets either.

You forgot acid rain was suppose to melt our cities.

I think Dorothy threw that on the Wicked Whitch of the West. She melted.

President Obama has apparently halted global warming by a secret executive order, which, amongst other things, commands the seas to stop rising, the world to begin to heal and the Chevy Volt assembly line to show a profit in 2013 despite a MSRP of $39,999, less $7,500 in government rebates.

This is the only conclusion that I can come to as I ponder the Global Warming Alarmists Brigade’s latest effort in pseudo-science, or what I like to call “Science for Journalists.”

Recently Shaun Marcott, Ph.D., published a paper that “proves” that the world is warmer now than at...
