Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

If you’re living in New England and you’ve recently been buried under snow, you probably don’t want to hear how it’s somewhat the fault of (man-exacerbated) global warming. Nor that we can, maybe, tweak the weather to perfection if only we drastically curtail the carbon-emission needed to make boots, gloves and roofs, and to operate snow plows.

Perhaps you’re saying, “Warming? The snow is cold.”

But half-baked conclusions that the concluder is frigidly determined to reach regardless of evidence may be “based on” any set of facts under the sun.

Patrick Michaels and Paul Knappenberger of the Cato Institute point out the silliness of regarding an unknown human contribution to climate patterns as co-responsible for any bad weather.

Blizzard Juno (like pretty much any storm) was “the result of a very complex system of physical interactions — the precise behavior of each one of which is not completely understood, much less perfectly predictable. This makes ascertaining the influence of human-caused climate change virtually (if not entirely) impossible.”

The authors present a graph of snowfall totals in NYC’s Central Park since the late 19th century. Lots of spikes, lots of troughs. In other words, natural variability in the weather is nothing new.

We can’t always predict the course of storms very exactly. But, these days, we sure can predict that when the storms come, humanity will be indicted along with Mother Nature . . . almost as if there were no weather on earth before human beings showed up.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Just more proof of your STUPIDITY. I guess you also think the world is only 6,000 years old.

    You IDIOTS are beyond belief.

    In Psychology 101 they give an example of a chicken caged with a machine that gives a random reward. Once the chicken notices the reward it starts trying to figure out how to make it come more frequently. It decides, without anything to substantiate it’s assumption, that something it was doing was producing the result. In a line of similarly occupied chickens, this will generate all kinds of reinforced bizarre behavior with the chickens quite convinced that they are causing the particular reward to occur.
    Works with liberal-progressives, also.

    Fuck you, ASSHOLE!!!

    Is it as evil that conservatives think liberals are stupid as it is stupid that liberals think that conservatives are evil?

    Five letters: HAARP. Check it out. Definitely Wizard of Oz material, and it’s not just our own benevolent government. Then make the surf over to http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/

  8. JATR4: Hopefully you just got up on the wrong side of the bed. This group always welcomes differing opinions but bad manners, not so much.

    Profanity is the refuge of the inarticulate.
