EPA and Sierra Club Climate Change Deniers?

“Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here,
and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new
global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.

– Barack Obama,
US President

“I don’t have much patience for people who deny climate change”
– Barack Obama,
US President

“I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior.
– 
Sally Jewell, U.S. Interior Secretary

“How do we make a response to this climate challenge work in a way that’s healthy to the economy as well as addressing what is perhaps the greatest threat we have to the environment”
– Gina McCarthy, EPA Administrator

PORTAGE GLACIER, ALASKA — As she marvelled at the site of a shrinking Alaska glacier, the newly installed leader of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that the president told her that fighting climate change should be her primary focus.

“The president’s main priority for me was to recognize when I was coming in here that this is going to be a significant challenge and one in which the administration was going to begin to tackle,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

Only a complete imbecile (i.e. Barack Obama) would believe that he could stop interglacial processes which have been going on for 20,000 years.

Alaska’s Most Famous Glacier Retreated Eight Feet Per Day Between 1794 And 1879

Posted on July 19, 2013 by 

As you enter Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska you will cruise along shorelines completely covered by ice just 200 years ago.

Explorer Captain George Vancouver found Icy Strait choked with ice in 1794, and Glacier Bay was barely an indented glacier. That glacier was more than 4000 ft. thick, up to 20 miles or more wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St.Elias Range of mountains.

By 1879 naturist John Muir found that the ice had retreated 48 miles up the bay. By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier headed Tarr inlet 65 miles from Glacier Bay’s mouth.

The glacier that filled Glacier Bay during the Little Ice Age began its retreat from the mouth of the bay more than 200 years ago and has exposed a magnificent fjord system about 100 km long. The massive glacier retreated past Sitakaday Narrows ~190 years ago, retreated past Whidbey Passage ~160 years ago, and reached the upper end of the main bay by 1860 (~140 years ago). There the glacier bifurcated and the multibeam data set terminates. The amount of fine sediment reaching the lower bay is largely restricted to local runoff and plankton debris. In addition, the currents through Sitakaday Narrows can be as fast as 7 kt, scouring the bottom of fine sediment. So a long history of morphologies is clearly visible on the bottom.

Are Sierra Club members aware of the extreme glacial retreats and significant climatic changes observed by their founder John Muir in the 19th century? Or like all global warming cult members, are they brainwashed into believing that the climate began in 1976?

1871 Shock News : Sierra Club Founder Discovered That Vast Glaciers Had Disappeared From Yosemite

Posted on September 2, 2013 by 

It must have been Fred Flintstone’s SUV that ruined the glaciers.

ScreenHunter_92 Sep. 02 15.12

in my opinion future investigation will uncover proofs of the existence in the earlier ages of Sierra Nevada ice, of vast glaciers which flowed to the very foot of the range. Already it is clear that all of the upper basins were filled with ice so deep and universal that but few of the highest crests and ridges were sufficiently great to separate it into individual glaciers, many of the highest mountains having been flowed over and rounded like the boulders in a river. Glaciers poured into Yosemite by every one of its cañons, and at a comparatively recent period of its history its northern wall, with perhaps the single exception of the crest of Eagle Cliff, was covered by one unbroken flow of ice, the several glaciers having united before they reached the wall.

Obama calls people climate change ‘deniers’ because he wants to prove to the world and his estranged father that he and his unelected eco-fascist EPA, armed with economy wrecking draconian emissions controls, can change the climate and stop the interglacial process which has been going on for 20,000 years.

Climate change soon could kill thousands in UK, says report – The Guardian 12/2/2008

Heat related deaths as a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions leading to Global Warming are completely unsubstantiated by empirical evidence. In fact studies show the opposite is true.

Throughout history, evidence indicates a cooler planet poses a much greater threat to humanity than any slight warming:

The Deadliest U.S. Natural Hazard: Extreme Cold

The following table from Goklany (2007) provides a breakdown of mortality due to the major types of extreme weather events for 1979-2002 based on data from the CDC database for extreme cold and extreme heat, and various arms of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for floods, lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes. It indicates that extreme cold, rather than heat, is the deadliest form of extreme weather event. In fact, over this period, extreme cold was responsible for slightly more than 50 percent of deaths during this period for the categories listed in the table.

Note that despite the hoopla about natural weather disasters, they contribute less than 0.06% to the annual U.S. death toll!

Moreover, as the following figure, also from Goklany (2007), shows, both US death and death rates from weather events are declining, despite any climate change, which we are assured can only make matters worse.

Of course we all know that the human race has historically done better during warm periods. While we’ve seen a sloght warming in the last century, we’ve also seen a worldwide improvement in the human condition.

Warm – what’s not to like?

In an article entitled, “The impact of global warming on health and mortality,” published in the Southern Medical Journal in 2004, W.R. Keatinge and G.C. Donaldson of Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of London note:

“Cold-related deaths are far more numerous than heat-related deaths in the United States, Europe, and almost all countries outside the tropics, and almost all of them are due to common illnesses that are increased by cold.”

“From 1979 to 1997, extreme cold killed roughly twice as many Americans as heat waves, according to Indur Goklany of the U.S. Department of the Interior,” Singer and Avery write. “Cold spells, in other words, are twice as dangerous to our health as hot weather.”

According to the C.I.A., the 1970’s Global Cooling Climate Scare was to bring drought and starvation:

CIA COOLING WARNING

MAJOR world climate changes were under way that would cause economic and political upheavals “almost beyond comprehension”, an internal report of the Central Intelligence Agency has warned the US Government.

“The new climatic era brings a promise of famine and starvation to many areas of the world”, the report warns.

A return to cooler temperatures in today’s fragile, interdependent global economic structure would mean that India, China and the Soviet Union’ — among other northern hemisphere nations — will be hard pressed to feed their populations.

The report, which was concerned with possible political and economic threats the United States could expect from such drastic events, said the starvation and famine would lead to social unrest and global migration of populations.

21st CENTURY GLOBAL COOLING TREND:

Despite record output of industrial emissions over the past 15 years, there has been no Global Warming, at all. In fact, since around 2002, there has been a measured cooling trend across all key data sets of around 0.07°C or 0.77°C per century.

Though this cooling is statistically-insiginficant, it highlights the epic failure of the IPCC and the ability of their billion dollar state-of-the-art climate models to forecast climate change, and the sheer insanity and costly danger of 97% of the world’s ‘expert’ scientists making alarmist forecasts and scientific reporting based on 73 overheated CMIP5 climate models.

The Glacial Attack

Note to readers:

  • Detailed satellite measurements of glaciers and ice extent only began after 1979. We therefore only have 34 years of satellite monitoring to base detailed observations on. For historical climate perspective we have to rely on literal first-hand accounts and observations for any time before 1979.
  • Is the decline of Arctic sea ice extent from the century maximum of 1979 and glacial retreat in some areas, proof of ‘man-made’ global warming? Historical records tend to disagree or show similar, if not much warmer periods and greater melt occurrence throughout our history.
  • Real Science has compiled brilliant examples of ‘first-hand’ accounts and observations from press clippings when the polar regions have been in warm/warmer cycles throughout human observable history. Fascinating reading, if you’re into a climate historical perspective…
  • AGW climate alarmists will scoff at this list, because they like to believe the climate started in 1976, when the planet came out it’s 1945-1976 cooling phase and began the supposed ‘anthropogenic’ warming phase, until all that warming came to a grinding halt in 1998.
