MSNBC report:

 

Hillary Clinton called out climate change “deniers” at a clean energy conference in Las Vegas Thursday evening, but revealed little new about what her own energy policy platform might look like if she decides to run for president.

Clinton began her remarks at the National Clean Energy Summit by laying out the problems climate change is already causing today, including extreme weather and droughts. “[These are] the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face,” she said. “No matter what deniers say.”

 

 

Now, I wonder what “extreme weather and droughts” she has in mind?

 

According to NOAA, drought in recent years has been at historically low levels, while precipitation has been trending upwards.

Of course, she might be talking about hurricanes?

Well, except for the fact that landfalling hurricanes are at an all-time low.

Or, perhaps, tornadoes?

Or heatwaves?

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Hillary has not the slightest idea what she is talking about, and is simply repeating the crap that has been fed to her. 

 

So, Hillary, you have called me out, and I am here.

Now I am calling you out. Perhaps you might care to explain to me why you are so keen to make claims that are so apparently false?

    The scientific method REQUIRES skeptical review of a body of a body of work.
    Saint Algore, Pope of the Church of Global Warming has declared that the “science is settled” and no further discussion is allowed.
    Since his pronouncement is directly contradictory to the scientific method, his global warming assertions ARE NOT science.

    St. Algore has steadfastly REFUSED to debate the issue with anyone.. Since Algore refuses to debate the hoax of Global Warming, does this mean we Shrillary WILL debate it?

    If so, LET THE GAMES BEGIN! I’d pay to watch her make a fool of herself…. AGAIN!

    Democrat “projectionists” at it again. She says: “Aside from the deniers and the special interests and all the other folks who want to pretend we don’t have a crisis is the fact that we are leaving money and jobs behind,” she said. “For those on the other side, they have to answer to the reality they are denying peoples’ jobs and middle class incomes and upward mobility by their refusal to look to the future.”

    1. ‘all the other folks who want to pretend we don’t have a crisis’

    Let’s face it, Hillary is the one projecting and pretending that there is a climate crisis when there isn’t. The only real crisis is on her side of the argument, denying the reality that global warming such as it was ended nearly two decades ago. I can see her side’s crisis – they are running out of time before this weak solar cycle completely eviscerates their position.

    2. ‘they are denying peoples’ jobs and middle class incomes and upward mobility by their refusal to look to the future’

    The make-work energy programs they have now never created the jobs they claim. The upward mobility and income growth she mentions have all been destroyed by Obama’s policies that she advocates.

    Looking to the future means assessing the real risk of the expected global cooldown due to weak solar activity forecasted by solar physicists from around the world. She has no clue.

    She is the denier of reality, along with Obama, Kerry, Holdren, …. the list is long.

    3. ‘we are leaving money and jobs behind’ – Obama already accomplished that in spades. The warmists have wasted billions on their climate BS, and the warmist climate jobs are the only ones we really need to eliminate, as their CO2 “science” has failed “catastrophically”!

    Start with firing that dolt from NASA, Gavin Schmidt. Fire him first.

      Bill Clinton, Hitlery’s husband, is responsible for the loss of American jobs. and the crippling of the US economy. Do not let his charisma and his apologists tell you any different.

      First, the World Trade Organization he talked Congress into ratifying exported not only jobs, (five million U.S. manufacturing jobs – one of every four – have been lost.) but also US technology including military technology to our enemy China.

      Second to add insult to injury Clinton also signed the five banking bills into law that repealed the Great Depression era laws passed to prevent another Great Depression while leaving credit default swap unregulated. This allowed AIG free to gamble on American mortgages. He also signed the law forcing banks to make home loans to the unqualified.

      These laws taken together lead to Foreclosuregate and the idiotic ‘Bank Bailouts’ that filled AIG coffers allowing banks to force people into foreclosure instead of renegotiating. The banks were allowed to collect ‘the AIG Insurance’ funded by tax payers on the loans as well as get the property. How the AIG bailout is driving more foreclosures.

      Obama’s Loan Modification Plan was a ‘Honey Trap’ that lured the marginal qualified into foreclosure too. The Obama worker lowered your payments and after a year of “I need more paperwork” the bank says you do not qualify. You then have thirty days to pay the bank the back payments PLUS penalties PLUS lawyers fees…. OH and they WILL NOT tell you the exact amount of the bill unless you hire a lawyer to chase them for six more month all the while accruing additional penalties and fees…. And yes that is personal experience. No wonder the news reported over half of the homeowners “fell out of” the Obama Loan Modification Plan. What the stories didn’t tell you was the people lost their homes because of the scam pulled by Obama and the banks.

    Thanks, Paul.
    I’m also denying that humans know enough about the workings of the troposphere, or our oceans, for anyone to be sure that humans have affected the natural climate.

      Well Stated! Along those lines, and less known, is the fact that the same kind of cult-based looniness is also common among Meteorologists: http://www.solvingtornadoes.com

    She is right out of line – remember this…

    The full May 2013 AGW and weather IPCC special report IPCC Special Report on Extremes accurately reflects the academic literature on this topic. Over time good science will win out over the rest — sometimes it just takes a little while.
    A few quotable quotes from the report (from Chapter 4):
“There is medium evidence and high agreement that long-term trends in normalized losses have not been attributed to natural or anthropogenic climate change”
    
“The statement about the absence of trends in impacts attributable to natural or anthropogenic climate change holds for tropical and extratropical storms and tornados”
“The absence of an attributable climate change signal in losses also holds for flood losses”
The report even takes care of tying up a loose end that has allowed some commentators to avoid the scientific literature:
“Some authors suggest that a (natural or anthropogenic) climate change signal can be found in the records of disaster losses (e.g., Mills, 2005; Höppe and Grimm, 2009), but their work is in the nature of reviews and commentary rather than empirical research.”

    This is from Lawrence Solomon:

    “Limits on energy production in the West enabled conflicts in the Ukraine and the Middle East

    Global warming policies abet terrorism and global insecurity. If Western governments weren’t spooked by global warming, ISIS would be less of a threat to the West, the Middle East would be less of a cauldron of hate, Europe wouldn’t be held hostage by Russia and China wouldn’t be threatening its neighbours over islands in the South and East China Seas.”

    As William Safire said, “The Clintons are exceptional liars.”

    Hillary doesn’t know, John Kerry doesn’t either and the IPCC bunch doesn’t either! They just parrot what Al Gore started way back after loosing his election and has made himself a millionaire preaching the end of the world through Global Warming which was then changed to Climate Change in order to be more all encompassing. So now, if it’s too hot, too cold, too dry or too wet, it can all be blamed on Climate Change.

    I heard the Democrats are working real hard on a new weather machine. All they need is a few more trillion dollars of tax payers money.

    “According to NOAA, drought in recent years has been at historically low levels, while precipitation has been trending upwards.”

    NOAA specified US areas affected by historic drought, not the nation as a whole. Paul’s top charts show national averages, which blur regional variation. For instance, compare Southwest and Northeast regional PDSI values (http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/ ). Since 1975 SW has fallen at -1.13/dec; whereas NE has increased at +0.17/dec.

    Sub-regions of California, Nevada and Arizona have experienced historically low PDSI values recently and both California and Nevada have set record annual low PDSI values within the past decade. By contrast, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts have all recently set record highs. The regional picture is more complex than the national average suggests.

      “Let’s fight climate change, so we can make droughts worse in some areas!!!”

      That would be a catchy slogan!

      Yet the Western region aka California drought has been somewhat alleviated and is equitable to the 2007 levels of rain fall (Per the NCDC PDSI table). While I am not saying the drought is over, historically the NCDC PDSI table shows that once a peak (negative) drought level has been reached, the subsequent years drop back to normal levels (duration varies) for a time. Also, Governor Moonbeam is still tearing down dams and refuses to build desalinization plants that would help mitigate future droughts. Especially if California enters a megadrought period again in the future.
