That Moron Who Spews Garbage and Doesn’t Listen to Reason May Be a Bot

Leck’s bot, @AI_AGW, doesn’t just respond to arguments directed at Leck himself, it goes out and picks fights. Every five minutes it trawls Twitter for terms and phrases that commonly crop up in Tweets that refute human-caused climate change. It then searches its database of hundreds to find a counter-argument best suited for that tweet—usually a quick statement and a link to a scientific source.

As can be the case with these sorts of things, many of the deniers don’t know they’ve been targeted by a robot and engage AI_AGW in debate. The bot will continue to fire back canned responses that best fit the interlocutor’s line of debate—Leck says this goes on for days, in some cases—and the bot’s been outfitted with a number of responses on the topic of religion, where the arguments unsurprisingly often end up.

Two Years After Declaring The Arctic Ice-Free, The BBC Declares A Record Low In The Middle Of Winter

Environmental reporters never do any investigate journalism. They simply parrot the lies of government climate scientists, and move on.

This particular BS began with Mark Serreze, whom Politifact (aka Google Ministry of Truth) uses as their standard expert for all topics he has no expertise in.

A few months ago it was clear that the decision had already been made to declare a record low in 2015. There was a lot of propaganda circulating about it at that time, and the actual data never made any difference.

In truth, Bill Clinton has been a very busy boy, continuing to carry out the global agenda he orchestrated from the White House, and he’s doing it with funds equal to those of the GNP of a small nation. The mission for Clinton’s activities is “Global interdependence.” The other way to say it is “Global Governance,” UN style. Bill is all over the world, creating programs and policy, many times working directly with foreign governments, to bring about a one world government – at the expense of the sovereign nation he once headed.

BEX ALERT - Arctic sea ice hits lowest winter maximum on record

Although much of the United States has been shivering this winter, there's been another worrying sign of warming temperatures farther north. The cap of sea ice that spreads across the Arctic Ocean in winter appears to have been the smallest on record this year, according to NASA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These guys never quit. They cannot reconcile the harsh winter we all witnessed with their agenda of human-caused global warming (and demand for a carbon tax) so they claim the warming is just taking place somewhere where they know you cannot personally verify their claims. Until recently, the Carbnonazis were claiming that the world was warming, but the heat was "hiding" in the bottom of the oceans, until someone pointed out that this violates the principles of convection, in that hot water rises and heat would not "hide" in the deep very long, even if there were some magic way to get it down there in the first place! So now the promoters of global warming (and for a carbon tax) are trying to claim that the Arctic is devoid of ice and this is where the human-caused global warming is "hiding" now. But a look at the raw data for yourself (instead of listening to some guy in a white laboratory coat who is funded to "prove" global warming is real) will confirm that CNN is being as truthful about the arctic ice as they were about Saddam's nuclear weapons and unemployment being only 6%! Remember that 15 years ago the corporate media proclaimed that because of human-caused global warming, "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." (UK Independent, March 20, 2000). Al Gore predicted the arctic would be ice free as of last summer. None of those predictions came true. At the very least, we know the corporate media and NASA were flat-out wrong, at worst, part of a hoax to trick you out of your money for carbon taxes and carbon credits and tricking you into allowing government to decide for you how you will live your life.

Needless to say, CNN does not allow comments on this article.

Say it ain't snow! Winter storm for first day of spring

Spring begins Friday, but wintry weather will hang on at least another day for folks in the beleaguered Northeast.

"With just enough cold air available, a late season snowfall is becoming likely from eastern Ohio to southern New England, including many of the major cities along the I-95 corridor," said meteorologist David Hamrick of the National Weather Service.

Most of the accumulation should occur on grassy areas and forests, he said.

First Day Of Spring Snow 2015: How Much Snowfall In New York?

Spring is a time to melt away the snow and make room for warmer and sunnier days filled with flowers -- except that it’s supposed to snow the first day of spring. Some states in in the northeast, namely New York and Massachusetts, will be greeted with an arctic blast, the National Weather Service reported. There’s a 90 percent chance the white stuff will fall.

So how much snow will accumulate? The NWS predicts 3 to 5 inches on Long Island and 1 to 2 inches in New York City.

BEX ALERT - Global temps are up, but Chicago stuck with record cold

Global temperatures have reached a record high in 2015 – but, not surprisingly, Chicagoans aren't feeling the same warmth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a flood of these stories in local media all across the country that make the same claim, "Yes, it was really cold here where you are, but everywhere else it was roasty-toasty warm because of human-caused global warming, and just because YOU are still shoveling the snow from your driveway is no reason at all for you to ever, ever, ever, EVER, doubt the divinely revealed dogma from Al Gore!"

So far I have found similar media stories all across New England, Colorado, and even here in Hawaii.

Earth Is Halfway to Being Inhospitable to Life, Scientist Says

A Swedish scientist claims in a new theory that humanity has exceeded four of the nine limits for keeping the planet hospitable to modern life, while another professor told RT Earth may be seeing an impending human-made extinction of various species.

Environmental science professor Johan Rockstrom, the executive director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre in Sweden, argues that there are nine “planetary boundaries” in a new paper published in Science – and human beings have already crossed four of them.

Those nine include carbon dioxide concentrations, maintaining biodiversity at 90 percent, the use of nitrogen and phosphorous, maintaining 75 percent of original forests, aerosol emissions, stratospheric ozone depletion, ocean acidification, fresh water use and the dumping of pollutants.

Facebook selectively blocking climate doubters?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was sent a link to a Facebook page where there is a shouting match going on by the Carbonazis against anyone who insists they experienced cold and snow this last winter. The reader who sent me the link asked me to step into the debate, but when I opened the link, this is all I see!

The reader insists he can still see the page and probably so can you, but it appears that Facebook may be blocking selected individuals they don't want showing up to rain (or in this case snow) on the Global Warming parade!

Carr: Snow record only ‘Inconvenient Truth’ we need, Al Gore

We won! We won! “We” just broke the record for the most snow ever in one winter, 108.6 inches.

And in an amazing coincidence, Al Gore, the pied piper of global warming, is responding to the unprecedented snowfalls and low temperatures. He has issued a fatwa, calling for a PC jihad against the heathens who actually believe what they see, rather than what they are told by fake scientists waving made-up “hockey-stick” graphics.

Gore is quoted in the Chicago Tribune as demanding that the true believers “punish climate-change deniers, saying politicians should pay a price for rejecting ‘accepted science.’”

Atlantic Canada snowed under with second storm in three days

Blowing snow battered parts of Atlantic Canada for the second time in three days Wednesday, closing businesses and government offices and snarling transportation in the region.

Environment Canada meteorologist Darin Borgel said Nova Scotia bore the brunt of a slow moving low pressure system south of the province that was expected to dump up to 30 centimetres or more snow on northern and eastern areas of the province throughout the day.

There was potential for higher amounts with the rapidly intensifying storm, said Borgel.

Record cold, snow and ice along the Northeast. Icebergs in Cape Cod, more record snow and cold in Colorado, 100 inches of snow in a single 18 hour period in a town in Italy, we had a blizzard on the Big Island of Hawaii last Friday that forced the evacuations of the observatories and still the US Government (the same US Government that lied to you about Saddam's nuclear weapons) is pushing this human-caused global warming tripe as an excuse to take more of your money with a carbon tax. And USA TODAY parrots it all without question!

Mar 18 12:29

Why Is Al Gore Warming Up?

Al Gore, just like the planet, is getting hotter by the hour these days.

There he is at SXSW, rubbing elbows with tech elites, hipsters, and the commerce secretary. There he is, svelte and poised and proclaiming his new optimism to The New York Times. There he is in Vox, where Ezra Klein is trying to draft him into the 2016 presidential race. He's even popping up in conversations between Bill Kristol and Paul Begala. (If you feel compelled to check a calendar after that last one, I swear it really is 2015 and not 1995.)

It's not bad for a dude who peaked at 10 p.m. on November 7, 2000. Sure, he's had some good moments—notably the Nobel Peace Prize—but he's also had some not-so-good moments, and it's strange to see him getting so many headlines now. But what's behind this Gorenaissance? This reinvi-Gore-ation? This renew-Al? One way to think through the question is to think about what constituencies might benefit.

FLASHBACK FEBRUARY - Record Cold And Snow Destroy Global Warming Claims

Yet another bitterly cold, snowy winter is destroying alarmist global warming claims, proving once again that over-the-top global warming predictions are proving no more scientifically credible than snake oil.

This morning, stunning photos show New England lobster boats frozen in port, looking like they are stranded deep within the Arctic Circle. The boats have been frozen in place for weeks, which would be remarkable enough if this were the middle of January. However, the calendar is about to turn to March.

Connecticut is experiencing its coldest February in recorded history. So is Michigan. So is Toronto. Cleveland and Chicago are experiencing their second coldest February in recorded history. Frigid and record cold temperatures are being set from Key West to International Falls. At the same time, blizzard after blizzard is burying much of the nation with record winter snow totals, with winter snowfall records beings set from Boston to Denver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Already the Carbonazis are flooding the media with claims that this was the second warmest winter on record and the snow and ice was only in one tiny little area of New England.

BBC Climate Change Propaganda Violates Its Own Charter

Here was a programme so lamentably biased, so completely uninterested in counterarguments, so blatantly determined to pull the wool over its viewers’ eyes with straw men, false analogies and calculated misrepresentations of the real points at issue, that it constituted a flagrant breach of the BBC’s statutory obligations to accuracy and impartiality.

In short, this programme broke the law.

BEX ALERT - Basically, the only unusually cold place on Earth last month was the eastern U.S.

February was Earth's second-warmest such month on record, finishing up as the second-warmest winter and warmest 12-month period on record, according to preliminary NASA data. Both of these milestones signal the continued influence of manmade global warming as well as natural climate factors that are acting to elevate global temperatures.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Study Finds Earth’s Ocean Abyss Has NOT Warmed- Not Warmed!

Recall we are supposed to believe that the oceans have absorbed the warming that hasn’t occurred for approximately 15 years now? Yup, in 2013 we were informed by the AGW agenda pushers/profiteers that the deep ocean absorbed all the warming. Allegedly. IPCC claims deep ocean water taking a bullet for us

“Initially absorbed by surface waters, that heat is increasingly moving into the deep ocean, where it may seem "hidden" .....

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this claim betrayed how little science the global warming people really know. Warm water RISES TO THE SURFACE. Even if there were some mechanism to "hide" warming in the deep ocean, it could not stay there due to convection.

Why my own Royal Society is wrong on climate change: A devastating critique of world's leading scientific organisation by one of its Fellows

Five years ago, I was one of 43 Fellows of the Royal Society – the first and arguably still the most prestigious scientific organisation in the world – who wrote to our then-president about its approach to climate change. We warned that the Society was in danger of violating its founding principle, summed up in its famous motto ‘Nullius in verba’ – or ‘Don’t take another’s word for it; check it out for yourself’.

The reason for our warning was a Society document which stated breezily: ‘If you don’t believe in climate change you are using one of the following [eight] misleading arguments.’

The implication was clear: the Society seemed to be saying there was no longer room for meaningful debate about the claim that the world is warming dangerously because of human activity, because the science behind this was ‘settled’.

Why my own Royal Society is wrong on climate change: A devastating critique of world's leading scientific organisation by one of its Fellows

During my time as a government departmental Chief Scientific Adviser, I was always aware that politicians made the final decision on any issue on the balance of all the evidence. For this reason, civil servants are trained to draw their attention to all the upsides and downsides of taking a particular course of action.

Those who fail to provide balance are not giving advice, but lobbying. It is with the deepest regret that I must now state that this is the role which has been adopted by the Royal Society. And when scientists abandon neutral inquiry for lobbying, they jeopardise their purpose and integrity.

VINDICATED: Researcher punished for exposing climate fraud beats UCLA

One UCLA science researcher, a 34-year veteran of the school, found himself out of a job in 2011 after examining the data underlying diesel regulations proposed by a California regulator and exposing the shoddy credentials of a lead author of that regulator’s report.

James Enstrom secured victory in a two-and-a-half year legal battle against UCLA last week when the school agreed to settle the case.

The school is paying the “diesel particulate matter” expert $140,000, reinstating his title as “Retired Researcher,” and restoring his access to UCLA resources, “effectively” rescinding his termination, according to the American Center for Law & Justice, which represented Enstrom.

Series of Snowstorms Leaves Snow-Capped Mountains on Hawaii's Big Island

A series of snowstorms left an impressive view of snow-covered volcanic peaks on the Big Island of Hawaii.

A new image (above) from NASA’s Earth Observatory shows snow covering Mauna Kea on March 10, 2015. While snow isn't unheard of on Mauna Kea, NASA points out that it is uncommon.

Earlier this week, the National Weather Service had placed both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa under a blizzard warning. Meteorologists said as much as 8 inches of snow could fall at 11,000 feet elevation. Strong winds with gusts of 85 mph were also possible, according to meteorologists.

BEX ALERT - Sometimes you can’t win: More cold and snow thanks to global warming

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They never quit!

This article is in error in saying that only the eastern US saw record cold and snow. That is not true. Capracotta, Italy received 100 inches of snow in just 18 hours, and we had a blizzard on the Big Island here in Hawaii just yesterday!

Back in 2000 the global warming Carbonazis were screaming that snow was a thing of the past. But, they cannot admit they were wrong about human-caused global warming without losing their reputations and funding, and science has a long history of promoting major goofs for long periods of time, rather than admit error.

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles; which holds the record for longest running scientific goof!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thinking the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!

Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors though infection was caused by bad air.

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus...

... the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

NASA Signals Crisis: “California Has About One Year of Water Left”

Mac Slavo

The California drought has already been alarming enough not only for residents of the state – whose water supply was never secured, and has constantly been the source of heated controversy – but those across the country and globe who depend up on its agriculture for survival.

As SHTF reported back in November, NASA scientists have already warned that California’s groundwater supplies are at critical low points, and threatening the food supply.

Now, Jay Famiglietti – the same NASA hydrologist who led the previous report – is sounding an all-out alarm that California has less than one year of water remaining based on satellite image data:

Hawaii Blizzard Continues, Snow Removers and Observatories Evacuated

The blizzard warning continues for the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as snow is piling up high.

The National Weather Service says the warning is in effect for Hawaii Island’s higher elevations – anything above 11,000 feet – until 6 p.m. Thursday. Forecasters expect an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow to fall. Temperatures are in the mid-20s, but its the wind that is extreme, gusting up to 85 miles per hour.

Those who work on the summit – including snow removal crews – had to abandon their posts. This message was issued by the Maunakea Rangers early Thursday morning.

The warning calls for an additional 2-4 inches of snow on top of what has fallen, sustained winds of 45-65 mph with gusts over 85 mph, and temperatures in the mid-20s. Visibilities are expected to be one-quarter mile or less due to snow and blowing snow.

“Travel to the summits, either on foot or by vehicle, will be dangerous,” the National Weather Service cautions.

Kerry: Climate Change an ‘Elementary Truth’ – Like the Laws of Gravity

That climate change is happening and that humans are largely responsible should be as universally accepted as the law of gravity, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested Thursday.

“When an apple falls from a tree, it will drop toward the ground. We know that because of the basic laws of physics,” he said in a speech at the Atlantic Council in Washington. “Science tells us that gravity exists, and no one disputes that.”

“So when science tells us that our climate is changing and humans beings are largely causing that change, by what right do people stand up and just say, ‘Well, I dispute that’ or ‘I deny that elementary truth?’ ”

‘Idle Car’ Bill in NY Pays Citizens to Record, Snitch on Drivers

(Truthstream Environmental offenses are carrying increasingly heavy prices, as the 21st Century tends towards tightly controlled urban living.

Cities like New York are now closely monitoring the impact of human activity and assessing new fines and fees for excess. Take a new bill to regulate “idle cars,” an issue that NY Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal says “is a real environmental problem and a real public health problem” that contributes to pollution death, but is little enforced.

Rosenthal’s bill would increase fines for idling to up to $1500 for a first offense and $2000 for a second offense, while offering a cut of the money to resident snitches who record video of the offending vehicles and turn in their idling neighbors.

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last winter's record snow has not even melted and already the Carbonazis are flooding the media with stories about how it really was a very warm winter and only a few tiny itty bitty places got snow, and it's all still proof of human-caused global warming! They are not only liars, they are totally unrepentant and shameless liars!

World record? 100 inches of snow may have clobbered Italy in 18 hours

The Italian weather Web site MeteoWeb reports that Capracotta, Italy, saw 100.8 inches of snow in just 18 hours on March 5 — a total that, if verified, would set a new world record for snowfall in a 24-hour period.

The Italian village buried under EIGHT FEET of snow in one day (and it's not even in the mountains)

A record has been set for the most snowfall in a day after a tiny Italian village was dumped with 100 inches in 18 hours - forcing residents to ski between houses and climb out of second-floor windows.

The village of Capracotta, located in central Italy around 125 miles east of Rome, was hit with the polar blast on March 5 in a remarkable blizzard aggravated by powerful wind gusts.

Breaking a 1921 record set in Silver Lake, Colorado, of 76 inches, incredible photos from inside the village show walls of snow carved out from the fronts of doors and shops.

Global Warming (lies) By Walter E. Williams

snip: Climate change propaganda is simply a ruse for a socialist agenda. Consider the statements of some environmentalist leaders. Christiana Figueres, the U.N.’s chief climate change official, said that her unelected bureaucrats are undertaking “probably the most difficult task” they have ever given themselves, “which is to intentionally transform the (global) economic development model.” In 2010, German economist and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change official Ottmar Edenhofer said, “One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” The article in which that interview appeared summarized Edenhofer’s views this way: “Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection. … The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

Opinion: Sex charges cast a chill on climate cause

Rajendra Pachauri, one of the world’s most famous climate officials, is being investigated under three sections of the Indian Penal Code relating to sexual assault, harassment, and stalking. He has resigned as longtime chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), resigned from the Indian Prime Minister’s climate council, and has been disinvited from speaking at a conference at Harvard University.

Currently on leave from The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), the New Delhi-based entity he has led for three decades, Pachauri has been banned by the courts from entering TERI facilities and from contacting anyone who works there. He has also been grounded. A man who once joked that he “lives at 30,000 feet” due to his extensive travel schedule, is now prohibited from leaving the country without permission from a judge.

Extreme Weather Watch: February 2015 Sets Records for Snow and Cold

Many records for snowfall and extreme cold were set in February. Some might think this is a sign of the nonexistence of global warming, but they would be wrong. Maybe the terminology should be more appropriately “climate change,” but global warming still holds if the average surface air temperature sets records as it did in 2014 despite extreme cold in the northeast US. It remains to be seen if extreme heat elsewhere in the world will make up for the extreme cold over much of the eastern half of the US in 2015.

The BBC’s Climate Change Coverage Is Not Just Dishonest but Illegal

First section: this attempted to make a big deal of the fact that the world has warmed by around 0.85 degrees since 1880. But as Booker notes, this isn’t really the issue of contention.

What she left out was that there has been nothing unprecedented about our recent warming. As the world has generally warmed since emerging from the Little Ice Age 200 years ago, two earlier warming phases from natural causes, between 1860 and 1880 and from 1910 to 1940, were just as great as that of the last 30 years – before CO2 levels rose as they have done recently.

Second section: this sought to tell us that just as we can use models accurately to predict the future performance of premier league football clubs, so too we can rely on them to predict climate.

What he omitted to explain was that, in the past 17 years, the IPCC’s computer model predictions have turned out to be comprehensively wrong.

This is merely the latest silly narrative being promoted by the likes of Slate, Wired, The Telegraph, NBC, and The Guardian among many others.Slate, by no means, is the sole purveyor of such abjectly stupid claims nor are the other media outlets listed above. Still, one need only read the Slate article to see how the “climate change is the real reason for the Syrian war” claim is being presented.

If you thought your winter was tough, try living on Plum Island, where record snowfall has left basements flooded with sewage, people forced out of their homes - and wild coyotes roaming the streets

With planes skidding off runways, snowdrifts as tall as houses and subzero temperatures for weeks on end, the US has suffered one of the most brutal winters on record.

Thousands of flights have been cancelled, highways and railways have been paralyzed by the cold and swaths of the northeast resemble a vast frozen tundra.

But if you thought your winter was bad spare a thought for the people of Plum Island, a tiny barrier island off the coast of Massachusetts buried under nearly 10ft of snow.

Its shivering residents have faced a daily battle to dig their homes free from mountains of ice while raw waste has spilled back into their homes because the sewers are frozen.

The only road off the island is so exposed that drivers have had to form long convoys before being escorted across in 'whiteout' conditions by the National Guard.

BEX ALERT - American ‘Researchers’ Say Climate Change Caused Syria’s Conflict

Researchers have said that an extreme drought in Syria, occurring between 2006-2009, was ‘most likely‘ caused by climate change and contributed to 2011?s violent uprising. A trend of rising temperatures in the region supposedly ‘matched computer simulations of how the region responds to increases in greenhouse-gas emissions’.

CARBONAZI BEX ALERT - Why China's Pollution Could Be Behind Our Cold, Snowy Winters

Many scientists think that climate change might be one cause of this year's "snowpocalypse" in Boston and bitter cold snaps in New York and Washington.

But physicists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been looking into another culprit: air pollution in China and India.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another pathetic attempt by the promoters of human-caused global warming (and carbon taxes) to not have to admit they were wrong back in 2000 when they proclaimed that "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past" (UK Independent, March 20,2000) or just last November when they insisted this would not be a record setting winter such as the 5 that preceded it. Unable and unwilling to admit error (and lose all that funding to "prove" humans are warming the planet) this latest excuse reeks of desperation on the cusp of madness at protecting their pet theory and their own reputations. Human-caused global warming is real, but the cold winters are all the fault of China!

Climate on Earth is dominated by solar output (which is at record lows) and the slowly oscillating shape of earth's orbit from circular to elliptical and back to circular. When Earth's orbit is circular, we get the warmer interglacial periods. When the Earth's orbit is elliptical, then it spends more time further away from the sun at the far end of the ellipse per Kepler's laws of orbital motion and we get the ice ages. Al Gore and his cronies cannot control the sun or change the Earth's orbit. The whole hue and cry about human-caused global warming is a giant money-making scheme to sell carbon credits and to impose carbon taxes.

Mainstream Media Discovers What Created ISIS - Global Warming!

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

After five years of intense fighting and destabilization raging across Syria, Western mainstream press has finally discovered the true cause of the so-called “civil war.” It turns out that all of the analysts in the alternative media suggesting that the situation in Syria was the result of a NATO destabilization campaign and foreign-backed invasion of terrorists in the form of al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and ISIS were wrong. In fact, even those mainstream analysts who have suggested that the foreign invasion was actually a legitimate rebellion were apparently mistaken.

Thankfully, the mainstream press has discovered the true cause of the Syrian crisis – global warming.

Boston Mayor's Space-Saving Ban Seeks to End War Over Shoveled Parking Spots

With more than 8 feet of snow accumulating across Boston since January, clogged city streets have made available parking spaces a hot commodity.

Those that have spent the time and energy shoveling a clean spot deserve to park in it, locals have argued.

Walsh's decision was a controversial one, stirring mixed emotions in the community and across social networks.

On Craigslist, one Bostonian bragged about his ultimate retaliation: putting the shoveled snow back in the spot, surrounding and burying the car that pilfered his space.

"I was nice enough to leave the passenger door accessible in case they needed to get in for an emergency," the anonymous Bostonian wrote.

Nova Scotia aquaculture fish killed by superchilled water

Fish at three aquaculture sites in Nova Scotia have died and a so-called superchill is suspected, the provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture said Tuesday.

Cooke Aquaculture's sites in the Annapolis Basin, Shelburne Harbour and Jordan Bay are reporting mortalities, officials said.

A fish health veterinarian visited the Annapolis Basin and Shelburne Harbour sites and is expected to visit the Jordan Bay site in the next few days to investigate the cause of death, Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell said in a statement.

"Our provincial fish health veterinarians investigate mortality events to rule out diseases of concern," he said.

The department said a preliminary investigation has found a superchill happened, meaning sustained cold temperatures dropped the temperature of the water to the level that fish blood freezes — around –0.7 C.

The brutal Northeast winter is a 'horror show' for fishermen

Waterways around the Northeast are beset by ice that is more than a foot thick in some places, making life miserable for those who make their living on the water.

Scott Werner of Portland said this winter has been "a horror show" for lobster fishermen like himself. The ice has prevented him from getting his boat out to fish in recent weeks, and cut into his ability to make money in the already slow winter lobstering season, he said.
