From the Cheap Seats: The Global Cooling Consensus

Mr. Obama seems oblivious to the growing consensus among scientists that the climate is cooling

It seems Barack “Two steps behind” Obama is dusting off his global-warming agenda this week.  Yet he’s about as oblivious to the growing consensus among scientists that the climate is cooling as he was the activities of Edward Snowden.  Per usual, he’s as capable of catching up with neither.

The same can’t be said for The Economist, a magazine that Cheap Seats uses for reading material and is now stocking away for kindling, which has concluded after looking at the global temperature plateau that the public has been sold a bill of goods.

And who was this slick salesman? Could it be Al “Hey I just worked for Slick” Gore? Or his minion, Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, aka Maggie Fox of the Climate Reality Project, CRaP?

The Economist’s take is that “there’s no way around the fact that this reprieve for the planet is bad news for proponents of policies, such as carbon taxes and emissions treaties, meant to slow warming by moderating the release of greenhouse gases” (and enrich Gore to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, Cheap Seats wishes to point out).

“The reality is that the already meagre prospects of these policies, in America at least, will be devastated if temperatures do fall outside the lower bound of the projections that environmentalists have used to create a panicked sense of emergency. Whether or not dramatic climate-policy interventions remain advisable, they will become harder, if not impossible, to sell to the public, which will feel, not unreasonably, that the scientific and media establishment has cried wolf.”

Not just “Wolf!” but “Coyote!,” “Chupacabra!” and now, finally “Sasquatch!”

Really, don’t mess with Sasquatch.

Or Cheap Seats, for that matter.

      Rob what is your source? A bunch of bunk which as been proven made up…and those have sais “wellllll we may have skewed some of the data”. Let’s see in the Viking era, and Greenland was discovered…there were towns vineyards, etc till the planet started cooling itself… Orbit away from the sun?? Or was it wood fires that these heathens poured into the atomosphere ? Carbon ? hmmm we’re carbon based life forms..Trees plants wow they take in CO2 or Carbon Dioxide for you Rob, and create oxygen… Till the enviro’s democrats and Uncle Barrack came along, I am surprised we still exist on the planet… Save Us Barrack Save Us….maybe balance the budget too…and your plan to curb severe weather unveil that too…. Are we this stupid…Yeah we are…listen to the LIB’s your best interest NOT!!!
