WSJ 19 January 2017 – “Keeping Cool about Hot Temperatures” (editorial)
Because the left has developed this new political term “fake news”, The Biz Bucks Guy intends to use this same term, when applicable, to show the leftist radical enviros use the media very effectively to purport their agenda, anchor their ideology, and dissuade honest conversation. With the end of the Obama administration, his web site was finally taken down on global warming wherein he posted scores of photos – in a “most wanted” format – of climate deniers. The Biz Bucks Guy is disappointed his picture was not included.
Recently, NOAA, the National Obama Anti-truth Administration, announced that 2016 was the third year in a row that the temperature of the earth rose, all records. The Wall Street Journal quickly wrote an editorial debunking this claim (referenced above). This editorial refers to Judith Curry, formerly of Georgia Tech. (See the YouTube referenced above for more on Dr. Curry’s departure from Georgia Tech.) Curry promotes honest research, not the pseudo research in climate science that is being paid for by your tax dollars.
Here’s a few quotes from the editorial:
“The [climate change] models also can’t explain why more than 40% of the temperature increase since 1900 happened between 1910 and 1945, which accounts for only 10% of the increase in carbon emissions.”
“These nuances are important because phrases such as “hottest year ever” are waved around as a pretext for political action that usually involves giving more control over the economy to governments. This is inevitably sold as urgently required to save the planet.”
“The underreported news here is that the warming is not nearly as great as the climate-change computer models have predicted.”
“The most inconvenient truth during the Obama years has been that the biggest cause of lower U.S. CO 2 emissions has been the energy shift to natural gas from coal. Yet the climate-change lobby opposes fracking.”
In light of our new administration, The Biz Bucks Guy repeats his constant wish: May we have a true national debate on the science of climate and the policy needs (or lack of needs) that a consensus might bring. This debate should be bereft of hysteria. Such hysteria is certainly FAKE NEWS.
[Although opinion is included, The Biz Bucks Blog is primarily written to former students of Biz Bucks training courses to encourage their daily reading of the three opinion pages of the WSJ. This refreshes principles of Biz Bucks courses and improves business acumen on topics not discussed in Biz Bucks training.]
