On this day, November 29, 1928, Paul Simon (d.2003), later Senator of Illinois, was born in Eugene.
Also on this day, November 29, 2012, Rebecca Jeanette Rubin, a 39-year-old Canadian citizen and environmental radical, turned herself in to the FBI at border in Blaine, Washington. She was part of a cell in Eugene, Oregon, known as the Family, and was sought for setting fires at a Vail ski resort and a lumber mill in Medford, Oregon.
Computer models predicted sharp rises in temperatures that never materialized
Alarming reports of the dangers of Climate Change has intensified again with the release of the 4000 page report by the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change. Written by hundreds of scientists on payrolls of UN/IPCC member institutions the report is a watered down version of their proclamations from earlier in this century. The recent report, four years in the making, coincides with legislation at the state and national level. The goal of those sponsoring legislation is to create momentum that capitalizes on emotional decision making and ignores scientific method.
Oregon DEQ, under the direction of Richard Whitman, is closing in on sealing the deal for new Cap and Trade rules. The summer’s heat and drought in the Western States are being used to play on emotions by the majority of uninformed citizens encouraged to ‘do the right thing’ in the quest to become carbon neutral. The Western States cover only 1/40,000 of the Earth’s surface, but if you live here you may be made to feel your human activity imperials the planet.
Beginning in the 1970’s the UN/IPCC launched 102 computer models to predict among other things the Earth’s temperature in future decades. Their premise was that rising CO2 levels would surely be followed by catastrophic rising temperatures. This was a first for the scientific community that knew historically there was no connection between temperatures and levels of CO2. Ice core samples allowed accurate measure of both CO2 levels and global average surface temperatures going back at least 450,000 years.
Why would scientists now proclaim for the first time that rising Earth temperatures were caused by increased levels of CO2? These proclamations coincided with calls for reduction, even elimination of the use in fossil fuels among other measures claimed necessary to save the planet from ruin at the hand of mankind. If they could convince enough people that rising CO2 levels led to rising temperatures the calls for reduced use of fossil fuels would be justified crippling essential energy usage.
CO2 levels did rise from 280 parts per million to 420 ppm. The 102 computer models predicted sharp rises in temperatures that never materialized. The recent 4000 page report comes 12 years later with what some say is a calculated bet that the public will fall for the same lies all over again.
