Hearne: Lezak to Lift Lid on Global Warming February 13th

In another life, Fox 4 meteorologist Mike Thompson mighta58327184a32bc234de74778288620be have had any number of careers…

Flat Earth Cartologist, Witch Doc, Bloodletter, Turner of Gay People to Straight – you get the picture.  Whatever entailed ignoring science and clinging to antiquated beliefs.

After all, we do live in Kansas – many of us anyway. You know, where the earth was created in seven days and some chick named Eve turned us all into pervs by chomping into an apple.

Forget what the vast majority of scientists say, Thompson says climate change is hocus pocus.

The latest: KSHB TV weather wonk Gary Lezak plans to clear things up February 13th.“I’m doing a whole special on climate change then,” Lezak says. “That’s the target date.”

Speaking of which, what about yesterday’s tropical temps?

It was the warmest January 28th in Kansas City history,” Lezak says. “It was 74 degrees, 76 downtown. And it was the second warmest January day in Kansas City history.”

What about that snowfall Lezak predicted late last year?

Relax, it’s coming.Polar meltdown

“It’s going to snow in the morning,” Lezak says.

As for whether we’re on target for the warmest winter, not so fast Lezak says.

“No, it’s colder this year than it was last year. Much colder. Four to five degrees colder.”

    NASA scientist Dr. S. I. Rasool, in 1971 predicted, “The world could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age……” “Effects on the global temperature of large increases in carbon dioxide and aerosol densities in the atmosphere of Earth have been computed.. An increase by only a factor of 4 in global aerosol background concentration may be sufficient to reduce the surface temperature by as much as 3.5 ° K. If sustained over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease over the whole globe is believed to be sufficient to trigger an ice age.” All the same “scientists who were believed in the 70’s now appear as follows:

    “Global cooling was a conjecture during the 1970s of imminent cooling of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere along with a posited commencement of glaciation. This hypothesis had little support in the scientific community, but gained temporary popular attention due to a combination of a slight downward trend of temperatures from the 1940s to the early 1970s and press reports that did not accurately reflect the scientific understanding of ice age cycles. In contrast to the global cooling conjecture, the current scientific opinion on climate change is that the Earth has not durably cooled, but undergone global warming throughout the 20th century”.

    HUH?

    I find it interesting these guys in the 70’s were the recognized leaders of the field, telling us we would freeze as of, oh, today, more or less. Scientists using NASA developed programs and yes, as a matter of fact, they ARE rocket scientists! But, when the big freeze off didn’t happen as planned,, they were properly debunked and pimp slapped in articles like the one above, in favor of the version that now says we will all burn under the NEW and IMPROVED science of global WARMING! It was “science” in the 70’s too, by the best people we had to offer, until it didn’t pan out. But its REAL science NOW that they have a differing view.

    What if the ice caps are melting because there is hot, molten LAVA flowing under them, which there is!

    My summation; if the likes of Gary, Mike, Bryan can’t tell me with anything more than 10% certainty what it’s going to do TOMORROW, I’m not too predisposed to listen to their “science” that tells me I will burn in x YEARS from now. Give me ACCURATE weather forecasts for the weekend, After that I will listen to your long range super dopler estimates for the coming decade!

    We live in a world with weather cycles. Some years warmer, some years cooler and it’s been that way over recorded time.

    All science is based on a hypothesis; not always in fact, like “carbon dating”. To prove that in, you would have to have something you KNOW dates to 100BC as a benchmark. We simply don’t have that, so it’s based on….. a hypothesis. I’m not an Eve at the apple so we can blame all you FEMALES kind of person. I’m not a 7 day creation kind of guy, even though I live in Kansas.

    I think we see wildly swinging cycles. In 25 more years, we will be told why this global warming “science” was flawed… and now we really ARE going to FREEZE in the coming ICE AGE!!

      I remember my dad telling me we were headed for another ice age. the Star ran MANY articles and the old men in the neighborhood would drink PBRs Hamms on Sundays and make plans with regard to the coming BIG FREEZE!

      I don’t think ANYONE has any idea.

        Chuck, I read them all in college in the 70’s! The Coming Ice Age, Population Bomb, et al. The only thing that remains constant….is change . Change…. and Harley.

        • expat says:

          There is still a population bomb, maybe. It was put off by Norman Borlaug and his Green Revolution but all that did was use petrochemicals to grow food. If the oil runs out, the food supply diminishes and there will be mass starvation. On the other hand the population is naturally declining as people get educated so we may never reach that point: as the last two human beings on earth put down their books and say “we’re just not READY for kids” and the species goes extinct.

    Paul, you are smarter than that.

    Just because some dolt predicted a new ice age (which would have happened had we had a nuclear winter) doesn’t mean climate change is baloney.

    CO2 causes the earth to get warmer. We have more people, which emit c02. We have more cars, which emit co2. We have the same or less amount of plants we did a hundred years ago, which take in c02.

    It would seem to be rather obvious. And as a businessman who prides himself on looking long on trends one might venture that it is a great idea to invest in new battery technology, solar panels, and other green tech. We’ll sell it to ourselves, we’ll sell it to the EU, we’ll sell it to developed S. America, China will steal it and the earth temps will stabilize.

    A nice by product of this is making Arab oil sheiks redundant. They’ll only be selling to third world shitholes who haven’t converted and will be on the long slow slide to inconsequentialness.

    As a young professional making half in my profession that the same position made 20 years ago, I understand a desire to not pay too much for power. But we need to think long on this one. Plus some new jobs never hurt.

    • expat says:

      It was business that made me realize climate models are bogus: look up Long Term Capital Management and the success of their financial modeling.

      The problem is how the models are created and refined – they load the old data and create the model to fit, then use it to predict the future. The problem is that the model fits the known past well but doesn’t necessarily fit the future: they can only predict the future as long as the baked-in assumptions hold, and sometimes they don’t. (There’s actually a term of art for this in the statistical modeling field but I can’t remember what it is.) When you’re dealing with something with as many variables/unknowns as climate there are quite a lot of assumptions: the Sun’s output, the Earth’s magnetic field, etc. We may very well be warming but it’s nowhere close to being as simple as “CO2 = Hot”, and a computer model doesn’t warrant widespread panic. Anyway it’s a moot point because oil output is on an irreversible downhill trend so eventually we’ll run out of CO2 to release into the atmosphere.

      And I’m still waiting for someone to say definitively why the Younger Dryas occurred… Lezak?

  3. paulwilsonkc says:

    Bologonous, I agree totally with your points! My point was to print quotes of the renowned scientists of the 70’s producing scientific fact to predict a coming ice age. Today, the are debunked by our current scientists, producing scientific fact to predict global warming.
    Don’t you find it just a LITTLE funny? Fact vs Fact. Two different outcomes; all based in the facts of the day.

    Eggs = bad for you, Eggs = good for you.

    ….and like I said, till they can tell me what FRIDAY is going to look like, Ill just keep stepping out on my porch and seeing for myself. I love a good surprise anyway!

  5. Jim says:

    You will never, ever convince anyone that believes in God that climate change is real. Once you declare that one entity controls anything and everything, science is hocus pocus. Trying to have a rational discussion with someone that believes the Earth is 6,000 years old and dinosaurs where on Noah’s Arc………….well……………

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Actually, Jim, not true. The most hard core supporters of climate change I know is a retired physics teacher from a local “religious” Universtiy and my faaaaar right wing, way “religious” step father!

      I dont think you can lump all Christians into one bucket. I know that for a fact. Some, sure, there are parts of all groups that fit a stereo type. But certainly not all. You can’t say ALL Black people…. or ALL engineers… or ALL Priests. That hardly ever works out well.

      • Jim says:

        Point taken, PWKC. However, there is one exception to that rule. ALL architects. Yes, ALL. Enemies of the working man. haha

  6. Glenn says:

    The scientist who predicted and warned about New York’s vulnerability to a hurricane, a year before Sandy actually happened, states the number one climate change event that has the highest probably is nuclear winter.

    Look at the unstable regimes headed by sociopaths, and the possibility of nuclear winter cannot be discounted within our lifetime.

  7. Walt says:

    Of course we all know “climate change” and “renewable energy” are just Obama socialist plots to destroy the American way of life. Gotta go, Faux News is on……
