Global warming and the news media frenzy

Based upon past historical data: 3,287+ UNBORN BABY MURDERS have occurred in the last 24 hours in the United States. See my post “BABY HOLOCAUST” posted January 22, 2008.

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

The following is from—Horner, Christopher C., The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Global Warming and Environmentalism, Regnery Publishing, Inc., Washington, D.C., © 2007, pages 182-185. The chapter is entitled “Media Mania, Good News is No News” and the section this material is from is entitled—Historical hysteria.

“Today’s media alarmism is nothing new. In their publication ‘Fire and Ice: Journalists have warned of climate change for 100 years, but can’t decide weather we face an ice age or warming,’ the Business and Media Institute assembled a devastating array of media inconsistency in their alarmist claims, never with apology, explanation, or even recognition of their reversal(s) or even the fact their alarm has fairly accurately tracked temperature up and down [‘Fire and Ice: Journalists have warned of climate change for 100 years, but can’t decide weather we face an ice age or warming,’ BMI Special Report, 2006, found at (I did not check this site out. It’s so long I’m not sure I copied it correctly. I keep wanting to change the weather in the title to “whether” but it is written weather so I’m keeping it as it was written—my addition)] Most stunning is the fact that the very reversal of Man’s fate—and back again—has somehow avoided coverage. (Of course, the mass media has never been one to confess their errors unless forced by the circumstances to do so. They just ignore their mistakes, half-truths, and outright lies and merrily go on their way making more errors—my addition.)

BMI revealed that the New York Times has engaged in at least four separate campaigns about climate change, depending on how one views them, since warning of a new ice age in 1895. Though coverage dropped off, that warning was jump-started anew in 1924, and reversed again a decade later in 1933 with an article declaring, ‘Temperature Line Records a 25-year Rise.’ (In our monthly “record high temperature reports” for Peoria, the decade of the 1930’s is overwhelmingly ahead in record high temperatures for the eight months that we have covered so far—July through February.—my addition) Possibly embarrassed by the gaffe the Times swung back to anxiety over cooling in 1975 (‘A Major Cooling Widely Considered to Be Inevitable’), and returned as is well known to its current obsession with Manmade global warming.” (Will they one day soon reverse direction again and proclaim another “ice age” or have they finally gotten it right?—my addition)

“Time magazine initiated its own ice-age breathlessness in 1923, sensibly attributing its panic to rational factors including the sun. (It just hasn’t been delivering the heat it use to deliver?—my addition) It then reversed its position in 1939 (A little late was it?—my addition) to ‘weather men have no doubt that the world at least for the time being is growing warmer.’ Then as now, no doubt at all. And weather men wonder how they got such a bad name.

Time then flipped back to the ice age coverage; presumably aware of the misery that cold periods have historically wrought and the boon that warming generally proved, its reportage was more panicked than its warming stories. That wouldn’t last.

In 2001, Time popped its ‘frying egg’ cover story about Man devastatingly cooking the planet, joining the media fury over Bush expressing agreement with Clinton’s refusal to seek approval of the Kyoto Protocol. This was a warm-up for the ‘Be Worried. Be Very Worried’ cover trotted out to help (or ride) Gore’s movie hype of 2006.” (How could Al Gore possibly be wrong? He received a Nobel Peace Prize didn’t he?—my addition)

In sum, media alarmism, like climate itself, runs in cycles:

Catastrophic Manmade global warming: 1981-present
Catastrophic Manmade global cooling: 1954-1976
Catastrophic global warming: 1929-1969
Catastrophic global cooling: 1895-1932

(I’m not sure how the author came up with the exact dates listed. Note that there is some overlapping. Perhaps because the news media “experts” were projecting into the future and then after the fact using that wonderful tool of hindsight projected the starting points of the new catastrophic occurrence back into time—my addition)

The actual cooling and warming of our climate typically precedes the alarmism about it, and often the media are still running in the hot direction while the climate is already turning toward cold. At other times, while the media and the academy scramble to get into lockstep, we see a gap between periods of alarmism. Possibly, in this information age, some publications might actually be a little squeamish about such aggressively craven abuse of the previously noble pursuit of journalism, if not so squeamish as to miss the boat.”

As I’ve been saying with every post about the record high temperatures for a particular month: No human can accurately predict what the weather is going to be like 50 years from today. We have difficulty predicting with 100% accuracy what the weather is going to be like seven days from now. This I do know. If GOD wants global warming as predicted by the “Al Gore gang” to occur, there is NOTHING man can do to stop it. If GOD doesn’t want global warming to occur, it won’t, no matter what man does. Of course, God could always let man proceed as they choose without HIS hand in it either way. I don’t know what will occur 50 years from now and NEITHER DOES any other human on this planet!

This I also know. If I were living a life of SIN, I’d be more concerned about what GOD will do today and tomorrow or what will happen to me after my death (none of us has a guarantee that we will live another fifty years) than what is going to occur in another 50 years!!!

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)
