    Lou Dobbs of Fox News made a grandiose announcement last week that “new findings throw the entire global warming theory into question.”

    Stop the presses!

    But who turned up to bury global warming but Roy Spencer and his paper in Remote Sensing?

    As deniers love to say: Epic Fail.

    Dobbs promptly forgot about burying global warming and ended up saying: “[T]here’s no question about climate change. What there is an issue about is the effect of it primarily, and really not much of a discussion about cause either.” Eh? Whazzatmean?

    Possibly someone told him that Spencer's paper had not exactly set the scientific community alight.

    More on US conservatives (& some Democrats) War on Renewable Energy:

    In the House of Representatives, conservatives and oil-state Democrats want to make sure the oil industry doesn’t lose one of its biggest customers. They’ve been trying to repeal a 2007 law that prohibits the military from buying oil from tar sands and liquid fuels produced from coal. Never mind that those fuels consume far more water and produce far more carbon emissions than conventional oil, or that the convoys needed to deliver fossil fuels to the front lines are arguably the military’s greatest vulnerability and the soldiers’ deadliest duty. More than 3,000 contractors and soldiers were killed trying to protect fuel and water supply lines in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2003 to 2007. Last year, ground convoys were attacked 1,100 times

    An excellent post by Professor John Nielsen-Gammon of Texas A&E University. Nielsen-Gammon is Texas State Climatologist, and the man who help Anthony with his statistics on the US weather stations, correcting some of Watts' egregious claims.

    Nielsen-Gammon reckons the Texas Drought is a 1-in-250 year event. You can ready why here:

    Texas Drought: A Fingerprint | Climate Abyss | a Chron.com blog



    The chart shows teh cumulated rainfall going back from July 2011 (month 1). In the last 6 months Texas has accumulated 5 inches of rain. That is what Ireland gets in an average single month. And it was only slightly better for the 12 months before that.

    I never liked Al Gore very much, but with every personally abusive attack on the man, I am getting to like him more and more.

    As for "allegations", as Christopher Hitchens said "What is asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence".

    Global Warming: its only a theory.

    Fox News: "The Department of Education are teaching global warming theory as if it was a fact"



    In science, a theory is the highest order of fact.

    Owedtojoy is spamming this thread with post after post, SirCharles is too, to a slightly lesser extent, with his countless links to youtube videos.

    This is meant to be a discussion forum not a scrap book for people to cut and paste everything they can find on climate activist sites, and so I have put them on ignore. Hopefully if other posters do likewise, ignoring them and their constant interruptions, interested posters on both sides of the debate can actually develop meaningful discussions.
