Count us among those who were surprised in early June when Mitt Romney came out officially as a lonely global warming believer in a climate-change denying GOP field. Since then, the mercurial frontrunner has had to rebuff a broadside launched by the Rush Limbaugh conservative base and tacitly accept praise (a kiss of death) from Al Gore on his sensible position. So Mitt's campaign, eager only to focus on jobs-related issues, appears to be minimizing the matter.
Last Thursday, in town hall held in Derry, New Hampshire, Romney argued that carbon emissions shouldn't be regulated as pollutants by the Environmental Protection Agency. The candidate's admission that "I don't think carbon is a pollutant in the sense of harming our bodies" was caught on tape by Think Progress and, yesterday, Politico reignited debate about his limited climate change support. The remark also revived the long-running liberal charge that Mitt Romney paradoxically believes in global warming yet won't do anything to help combat it.

Nobel laureate Al Gore must be noticing the public's continued lack of concern for his money making myth about carbon dioxide destroying the planet.
On Tuesday, he announced a new campaign and worldwide event to re-energize global warming hysteria:
Today, The Climate Reality Project (formerly the Alliance for Climate Protection) announced a new global campaign to broadcast the reality of the climate crisis and mobilize citizens to help solve it. The campaign kicks off with 24 Hours of Reality, a worldwide, live streamed event on September 14-15.
During the 24 Hours of Reality event, people all around the globe living with the impacts of climate change will connect the dots between recent extreme weather events -- including floods, droughts and storms -- and the manmade pollution that is changing our climate. From Tonga to Cape Verde and Mexico City to Alaska, the event will feature scientists, celebrities, business leaders and concerned citizens, along with former Vice President Al Gore. It will be broadcast live online over 24 hours, in 24 time zones and in multiple languages.
"The climate crisis knows no political boundaries. Ferocious storms and deadly heat waves are occurring with alarming frequency all over the world. We are living with the reality of the climate crisis every day. The only question is, how soon can we act?" said Vice President Gore.
I guess Gore noticed the total failure of last month's climate talks in Bonn, Germany, as well as last week's Harris poll which found "the lowest number who believe in global warming since the question was first asked in 1997 (44% now do, down from 51% in 2009 and 71% in 2007)."
The reality is despite all of his efforts to con people into believing a trace gas in the atmosphere is causing the planet to warm, fewer and fewer are buying it.
I guess that means it's time for another international dog and pony show to shore up all the financial investments he's made.
When are the media going to see through this charade?

The calendar says summer starts tomorrow in the Northern Hemisphere. The snow falling in the mountains of Colorado tells a different story.
A storm that has prompted a tornado watch across Nebraska and Kansas today also left 2 to 4 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains, said Joe Ramey, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Junction, Colorado.
"It is unusual," Ramey said. "Here it is the last day of spring."
A winter storm advisory has been posted in the mountains of Colorado above 10,000 feet until 6 p.m. local time, and at least one tornado was reported in Kansas, according to the weather service. The Northern Hemisphere summer starts at 1:16 p.m. New York time tomorrow.

USA Today tried repeated the story put out by Jeff Masters of Weather Underground and Mark Serreze of NSID about how Global Warming is causing more snow. When you read the comments you get the idea that maybe the readers aren't buying it anymore.
Here are a few samples.
Using this logic you can blame global warming next time your toilet gets blocked, or your car doesn't start, late for work...etc. Global warming is now your all purpose excuse for everything that goes wrong in your life. If it's good enough for liberals it's good enough for us.
The global warming lie is over ..... get on with your next big lie. You got caught red handed manipulating data so why in the hell would we believe anything else you have to say in this matter...... WE DON"T!
These so-called scientists will blame every weather change on their global warming hoax!!! Give it up already! The jig is up.
Feel Free to join the fray
(CNN) -- An icy cold front that swept through northern Mexico over the weekend left 65 zoo animals dead, the zoo's owner told CNN on Monday.
Parrots, crocodiles and peacocks were among the victims of temperatures that dropped as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 15 degrees Celsius) early Saturday morning at the Chihuahua Zoo in the city of Aldama, about an hour north of Chihuahua.

If the planet is warming, why is a third of America locked in a deep freeze, with record-low temperatures as far south as the Mexican border, where the thermometer in Ciudad Juarez plummeted Wednesday night to a bone-chilling 9-below zero?
Self-proclaimed planetary climate czar Al Gore thinks he has answer.
"As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now, and they say increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming," Gore write in a blog post. The Nobel Prize-winning former vice president was responding to a question posed by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, who wondered on air why global warming was such an urgent science policy priority when the New York City area had become a "tundra" this winter.
Gore also indicated that he believes a rise in global temperatures is creating "all sorts of havoc," from hotter dry spells to colder winters and ever more violent storms. This is even endangering certain species of animals and leading to forest fires and floods.
But not surprisingly, some climate-change skeptics are a bit hot under the collar over Gore's "scientific" explanation.
Another winter storm is pounding much of the nation. Between Midwestern blizzards, record-breaking Northeast snowfall and widespread winter cold, what's with climate change and global warming?
Are the U.S. winter extremes proof that global warming isn't happening or is even a hoax, as many skeptics suggest? Are the winter extremes a product of a warming atmosphere, as many climate change advocates assert?
While opinions about climate change vary greatly, even among experts in climate science, the consensus is that short-range weather events have little to do with the climate change debate.
There's no debating that it's been cold, especially in January. According to Deke Arndt of the federal National Climatic Data Center, "January 2011 will rank among the coldest 20 percent of Januarys on record since 1895." December, although very cold in the Deep South, averaged near normal across the country since the Southern cold was balanced by warmth elsewhere.
On Friday, MSNBC's Chris Matthews blamed the crisis in Egypt on George W. Bush and the Iraq war.
Two days later, climate alarmist extraodinaire Joe Romm blamed it on - wait for it! - global warming:
This summer's extreme global weather raised fears of a "Coming Food Crisis," as CAP's John D. Podesta and Jake Caldwell warned in Foreign Policy: "Global food security is stretched to the breaking point, and Russia's fires and Pakistan's floods are making a bad situation worse." Earlier this month I discussed how, in fact, "Extreme weather events helped drive food prices to record highs." Back then, experts were worried about food riots. Now they are happening.

On Friday's World News on ABC, correspondent Linsey Davis filed a one-sided report in which she cited the views of climate scientists who blame the recent cold temperatures and high amounts of snowfall on global warming. After recounting the recent extreme weather around the country, Davis continued:
If this winter seems especially brutal, scientists say you're right. ABC News contacted 10 climate scientists to ask their take, if an extreme winter like the one we're having is the way of the future. The consensus? Global warming is playing a role by shifting weather patterns in unpredictable ways. Many say the forecast for the future calls for record-breaking precipitation and extreme temperatures year round. And that means winters with more snow.The ABC correspondent concluded the report by noting the unusually cold temperatures in Boston:
LINSEY DAVIS: Here in Boston, the good news is that the snow has stopped, at least for now. But the bad news is that temperatures are expected to drop below zero for the first time in this area in six years. Diane?
DIANE SAWYER: And this could be the new normal, as you say. Linsey Davis reporting.
Notably, in July 2005, ABC's World News filed a report that warned that hurricane intensity would likely increase due to global warming, omitting the theory that hurricane intensities go through cycles over decades. The report was recycled in September 2007 as a nearly identical piece ran.

The mainstream press is doing a good job of pushing the latest piece of Global Warming propaganda that 2010 is the warmest year ever. To prove their pont they show this chart, which shows a gradual increase in temperature of one degree over the last 130 years.
The thing that bugs me about these charts that show how "bad" global warming is, is that they zoom in extremely close to exaggerate how bad the problem is. If you look at the left side of the chart they are measuring in tenths of a degree. That is why I made the above chart which zooms out and shows more the earth's temperature range.
The average temperature on Earth is about 13ºC. The highest recorded has been 56.7ºC and lowest -89ºC. For my chart I zoomed in on an 80 degree range form +40º to -40º which still only shows 55% of the earth's recorded temperature range. By the way the temperature in Minnesota got down to -46º F yesterday, which is off this chart.
Of course all of this "horrible" global warming is caused by the increased CO2 in the earth's atmosphere. In the last 50 years CO2 has gone from 315 to 385 PPM. which stands for PARTS PER MILLION.
To show this increase they always show this chart from the Mauna Loa Observatory. Notice how they zoom in to show a very small part of the earth's atmosphere which makes it look like it's increasing at an alarming rate. That's why I made the above chart which gives a a bigger picture of what that increase really looks like. My chart still only shows 1% of the earth's atmosphere, which is still exaggerating the "problem" a hundred times.
Keep in mind that greenhouses usually have CO2 levels at 1,000 parts per million for better plant growth.

1961 Farewell Address to the Nation
NOAA's Dr. Lubchenko, when she was president of AAAS in 1999, urged "Urgent and unprecedented environmental and social changes challenge scientists to define a new social contract ... a commitment on the part of all scientists to devote their energies and talents to the most pressing problems of the day, in proportion to their importance, in exchange for public funding."
NOAA and NASA are receiving big dollars $437M (NOAA) and $438M (NASA) in climate research funding and are expected to provide the information needed to support environmental, social and political agendas. NOAA and NASA also benefited from funding for climate change research from the Recovery Act of 2009 with up to $600 million. You can see how quickly the political operatives and the media enablers respond to those press releases (Hill story here).
The pressure has been mounting. The public doubt about global warming has been increasing in recent years given Climategate, and how promises of warm snowless winters failed. After cold and snowy winters in 2007/08 and 2008/09, the winter of 2009/10 was the coldest ever in parts of the southeast, and in parts of Siberia and the coldest since 1977/78 or 1962/63 in many parts of the United States, Europe and Asia. This past December was the second coldest in the entire Central England Temperature record extending back to 1659. It was the coldest ever December in diverse locations like Ireland, Sweden, and Florida. Reluctantly, alarmists changed their tune and the promise of warm and snowless winters as recent as 4 years ago morphed into global warming means cold and snowy winters.

Roland Fowler has made tiny Embarrass, Minn., very big on the nation's cold-weather maps.
Every morning, Roland Fowler walks a snowy path across his yard, opens a white, wooden box, and checks the condition of Minnesota's soul.
Fowler, 78, is the National Weather Service observer in Embarrass, and his reports frequently reinforce the notion that Minnesota is not for the faint of heart.
They often land the tiny Iron Range settlement in the daily news as the coldest spot in the continental U.S. Not Mt. Washington. Not Caribou, Maine. Embarrass, Minn.
"I've worked hard at this weather stuff and it's paid off for the community," Fowler said.
The Weather Channel, Garrison Keillor and Jimmy Kimmel have all paid shivering homage to Embarrass over the years, and news crews are frequent visitors to Fowler's back door. That's just down the road from Cold County Liquors and the sign reading "The Cold Spot."
UPDATED: Nearly 71% of the USA is covered in snow, 49 of 50 states have snow on the ground
UPDATE: The map and data have been updated from NOHRS. We now have added to yesterday's total with new overnight snows, bringing the CONUS coverage to 70.9%. KGMB-TV in Hawaii reports, that with snowfall on Mauna Kea, 49 out of 50 states have snow on the ground, with Florida the exception. -Anthony
Meanwhile, New York City declares a weather emergency due to snow.
Data from the National Weather Service National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center in Minnesota show that nearly 70 71% of the USA has snow cover.
The South just isn't prepared for a quick clean up after a major snow storm. And the temperatures continue to drop below freezing every night this week. It doesn't make economic sense for Atlanta to house large fleets of snow plows and tons of salt and gravel. But residents need it this week.
The data is finally in and 2010 is the warmest year this century, of course that's not saying much because this century is only 11 years old.
1998 is still the warmist year since we've started tracking temps using satellite and 1934 is still the warmest since we started using weather stations. But third place is still surprising, by looking outside my window I would have picked 2010 as one of the colder years. Maybe the warm-mongers are right, maybe global warming does cause global cooling.

Found this article at Colorado Springs Independent. Basically it tells all the mind-numbed robots how to "debunk" the "deniers". I am the only commenter so far debunking the debunker, you should all join the conversation, it'll be a hoot.
Record cold in Argentina? Per a China News Service...
Cold wave in Argentina leads to 28 deaths
BUENOS AIRES, July 19 (Xinhua) -- At least 28 people had died, 16 from hypothermia, as a polar cold wave swept across Argentina during the past week, authorities said Monday...
Then Per Bloomberg news Argentina Colder than Antarctica Argentina is importing record amounts of energy as the coldest winter in 40 years drives up demand and causes natural-gas shortages, prompting Dow Chemical Co. and steelmaker Siderar SAIC to scale back production.
Ironically why does this go hardly mentioned by main stream media and why do I have to get this from the Chinese media? instead they try to make us believe 2010 is the hottest on record... yeah right!
On Record : Discovery News - Aug 9
Jul 16, 2010 ... Last month was the warmest June on record, and so far, 2010 is the warmest year ever recorded, according to data released yesterday by the ...
The US Media reports on this: per Google the search
"hottest year on record 2010" About 14,700,000 results 2010 on Track to Be Warmest
How can they draw this conclusion its only august and I don't trust their data or their agenda.
The "coldest year on record" yielded on google About 902,000 results (0.26 seconds)
While all this occurs, the media focuses on the Arctic melting in the summer and the Antarctic melting in the winter. While ignoring the natural cycle where the Antarctic GROWS in the summer and the Arctic GROWS in the winter time. Instead they focus on 1/2 the story which sells sensational climate change, ignoring that the climate has been changing since the beginning of time.

The article, written by Greenpeace activist "Gene" from India, calls for "mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism".
"Gene" then has a special message for roughly half of Americans who, in the wake of the climategate scandal, are now skeptical of man-made global warming - "We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we be many, but you be few."
"Gene" quotes another climate activist who calls for an army of greenies to break the law and take retribution against anyone who stands in their way.
"The politicians have failed. Now it's up to us. We must break the law to make the laws we need: laws that are supposed to protect society, and protect our future. Until our laws do that, screw being climate lobbyists. Screw being climate activists. It's not working. We need an army of climate outlaws."
Greenpeace has not issued a retraction of the comments, preferring instead to buffer the blog at both beginning and end with desperate-sounding explanations insisting that the author has peaceful intentions. The organization has obviously been taking a hammering for this as it worsens into another public relations disaster.
This is by no means the first time global warming adherents have resorted to physical threats in an effort to bolster their rapidly crumbling credibility on climate change issues. In June last year, a global warming activist posted an article on the Talking Points Memo website entitled "At What Point Do We Jail Or Execute Global Warming Deniers?"
Shortly after the article was retracted, a comment traced back to another prominent global warming activist which appeared on the Climate Progress blog threatened Skeptics that "an entire generation that will soon be ready to strangle you and your kind while you sleep in your beds." Website owner Joe Romm defended the comment as "clearly not a threat but a prediction".
on a lesser known note, they also declared war on the iphone... http://www.moonbattery.com/archives/2007/10/greenpeace_decl.html - Greenpeace Declares War on the iPhone
The kooks at Greenpeace have no problem with bombing banks, but iPhones meet with their righteous disapproval.
I like pointing out when supposed Conservative Republicans believe in Global Warming. I thought Glenn Beck was a Global Warming skeptic, but in his interview with USA Today he sounds more like a Greeny Weeny.
"You'd be an idiot not to notice the temperature change," he says. He also says there's a legit case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind. He has tried to do his part by buying a home with a "green" design and using energy-saving products. "I'm willing to do anything but use the CFLs," he says of compact fluorescent light bulbs. "I put them in once and couldn't stand the way they lit up the room."
This add debut's environmentalism "green nazis" in practice during Audi's superbowl as joke, but perhaps they are making fun of the "Green Jobs" Obama promised? Surprisingly these subversively witty adds, are poking fun at real laws that most entertainment obsessed folks aren't aware of. Some have already referred to this as 'war on the American citizen'. This effects, the world, the Nation and of Course Minnesota. Ironically MUCH of what they are doing is featured in Minnesota'ss "NEXT GENERATION ENERGY ACT - 2007" see PAWLENTY SIGNS NEXT GENERATION ENERGY ACT -- May 25, 2007
These include arrests for styrofoam cups, incandescent bulb usage, plastic bags/bottles, emissions, eco check points, battery disposal, trash inspection, heating your tub too high! , etc.

Call it the mystery of the missing thermometers.
Two months after "climategate" cast doubt on some of the science behind global warming, new questions are being raised about the reliability of a key temperature database, used by the United Nations and climate change scientists as proof of recent planetary warming.
Two American researchers allege that U.S. government scientists have skewed global temperature trends by ignoring readings from thousands of local weather stations around the world, particularly those in colder altitudes and more northerly latitudes, such as Canada.
In the 1970s, nearly 600 Canadian weather stations fed surface temperature readings into a global database assembled by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Today, NOAA only collects data from 35 stations across Canada.
Worse, only one station -- at Eureka on Ellesmere Island -- is now used by NOAA as a temperature gauge for all Canadian territory above the Arctic Circle.
While our government is spending billions to prove AGW, this chap disproves it for £5.00.
