Live Blogging EPA Senate Hearings

The head of the EPA just destroyed the case for controlling CO2. You could see the democrats walking themselves into a checkmate as they tried to point to US government agencies as their new source of AGW and the threat to America. The EPA lead just dismissed the IPCC report as not important, since she is focused on America only.

Inhofe has her on the record noting US action alone will not impact CO2 levels. But moreover, NASA GISS is on the record noting that THERE IS NO AGW detected in America. If the Dems and EPA are going to use US government agencies as their guidance, then they better know what these AGW alarmist are ACTUALLY saying. No AGW in America and they do not expect to see any for 2-4 decades!

And NASA GISS also noted that this current decade is not statistically warmer than any other decade. The Dems are now trapped by their own illogic.

I really hope these people are reading the blogs!

Update: Bernie Sanders has gone hysterical. He clearly does not have the education to determine what science is valid or invalid. He just compared AGW to Hitler and Nazis. You know what they say when you invoke Hitler – you are in over your head on a topic you can barely grasp.

The Dems are trying to claim we should look at CO2 as a way to reduce reliance on foreign oil. But of course that is a clear attempt to lie to America – on the record! CO2 is not a poison or pollutant. And it is not tied to the level of oil imported.

Clearly these people have lost their minds, making up any excuse to push liberal policies.

Update: What a snoozer. It is amazing how much ignorance can be displayed by these underwhelming ‘leaders’ in 2 hours. AGW fanatics who struggled through HS science and math are pretending to be able to mediate scientific debate. It really is an amazing display of ignorance. It is hard to believe the intelligent and motivated people of America have such nimrods in Congress. Lord save this great nation.

    where is this being broadcast? I checked Cspan 1 and 2.

  2. Redteam says:

    Saw Bill Nye on Bill O’Reilly. That was a pure display of calculated ignorance. Apparently he has a dog in the hunt.

  3. Alert1201 says:

    The Nye appearance was a joke. Using the CO2 levels on Venus as evidence for AGW was an act of desperation.

  4. tarpon says:

    Bill Nye, the junk science guy, he was outed, gutted and left filleted.

    Venus has no magnetic filed, therefore has no magnetosphere to protect it’s atmosphere from the sun’s solar wind, and is about 70 million miles closer to the sun. The solar wind this close-up is viscous and likely blew away all the lighter molecules in Venus’ atmosphere, if there ever was any. But how would anybody know.

  5. crosspatch says:

    Venus also has zero water. It is CO2 and sulfur dioxide. Water makes for a powerful heat engine that can transport huge amounts of heat by absorbing it at low altitude during the evaporation state change, and then releasing it at high altitude in the condensation state change.

    Oh, and want to see what US temperatures are doing recently?

    Go here and select “Most Recent 12-month Period” from the “Period” pull down, it is all the way at the bottom, you might have to scroll the list down. Now select 1999 as First Year to Display and 2010 as Last Year to Display and then click “submit” at the bottom of the page.

    What you will discover is that in the Continental US, we have seen temperatures dropping at a rate of over 1 degree/decade since 1999. That is absolutely HUGE! If that rate were to continue, we would be in an ice age within 50 years. In 100 years we would not be able to grow anything North of Oklahoma.

    Add to that the fact that according to the ARGO floats, sea levels are dropping at a rate of about a half centimeter per year since 2004.

    Folks, while they are going around preaching all this “global warming” it looks like something quite the opposite and much scarier is happening. We can easily withstand stand 5 degrees of warming that mainly manifests as warmer nighttime and winter temperatures. We can not withstand 5 degrees of cooling.

  6. Alert1201 says:

    I did not even now any of what tarpon and cross said aout Vensu, except it was closer to the sun, and I thought it was stupid.

  7. AJStrata says:


    Sorry I did not see this sooner. I had to log onto the CSPAN website to watch/listen.

  8. Wilbur Post says:

    This seems to be a pattern with Obama and his Dummocrats – when they find themselves in a hole, their answer is to dig harder and faster. Hopefully they will soon be out of sight and we will no longer be able to hear them.

  9. Fai Mao says:


    The numbers it showed me were:

    January 1999 – 2009 Average = 33.31 degF
    January 1999 – 2010 Trend = -2.27 degF / Decade

    That is a much colder 10 year period than the previous cycle!

    I am glad I live in the tropics

  10. crosspatch says:

    You must not have selected “most recent 12 month period”

    Yeah, you did just January temperatures. Go back and select “Most Recent 12-month Period” in the “Period” pulldown menu.

  11. crosspatch says:

    Hey folks back east … lookout! Major storm headed your way later this week:


  12. marybel says:

    Thanks for the weather alert, crosspatch.

    I’m in western Ct and already under about 5 inches of old snow. Yikes. Better lay in some supplies.

    All this global warming…all these gore-flakes.

    I’m ready for a warm Mexican vacation.

  13. Redteam says:

    Using the CO2 levels on Venus as evidence

    yes, I was waiting for him to say it was Man made.

  14. WWS says:

    Snow again in central Texas today – haven’t seen the totals yet, but there’s a good chance that for cities like Waco and Dallas, this is going to be heaviest seasonal snow totals *ever*.

    When it’s snowing this much in Texas, this weather has gotten seriously cold.
