Highlighting The Dangerous Risk Of Fake News

Fraudster Al Gore is back pretending he is a scientist, and the fake news media is happy to help out with his fraud.

The largely illiterate Al Gore says : “Globally, flooding on a global basis has first place” – yet the “globally global” flood record shows that all of the world’s worst floods occurred  below 320 PPM CO2.

The Top 5 Deadliest Floods in History

Gore says plants “especially crops” are suffering from CO2.

Crop productivity is steadily increasing and at record highs. CO2 makes plants grow faster. Gore lies and the press soaks it right up.

CRU: Feeding Seven Billion: the fertilizer challenge

An NRDC fraudster says heatwaves are getting worse in the US.

Scientists highlight deadly health risks of climate change

This claim is total fraud. The frequency of hot days in the US has plummeted over the past 80 years.

The frequency of cold days has also declined.

Last year was one of the mildest years on record in the US, with very little extremely hot or cold weather. 2016 also saw also near record low hurricane and tornado activity in the US.

There is zero indiction that increased CO2 is hurting human health or making the weather more extreme. Life expectancy is at record highs. Fake scientists, fake politicians and fake news media have been terrorizing our country for far too long.

    It’s very cold and I have two feet of snow in my front yard. Is that a “dangerous climate impact”?

    Fake news, indeed.

      Well-you”ll have to understand this guy.
      I contrast to Obama he got his Noble Peace Prize not for absoluteley nothing but for a lie.
      That way building the fundament for a world wide tax.

      Before the Carbon Tax Scam he was barely a millionaire,
      since then he earned hundred of billions of dollars.

      One also should know that his daddy was a friend of the criminal oligarch(or as wikipedia calls them:Philantroph)

        hundred of billions of dollars.

        Umm, no, with all due respect, Al Gore isn’t even a billionaire. While it is true that he has made a few hundred million from his climate scam, you are off the mark by orders of magnitude.

        Nonetheless, he is still a worthless piece of excrement and has profited greatly from this AGW scam.

  2. gator69 says:

    In the climate and health meeting held at The Carter Center, Gore steered clear of mentioning Trump. Instead, he stressed that climate changes could render parts of the Middle East – including some of the holiest cities on the planet – uninhabitable. It could also cause deadly health problems and reduce life expectancy. Those in poverty will be hardest hit, he said.

    Yeah, climate change is a real threat in the middle east. The refugees keep going on and on about how extreme the weather is getting in Aleppo.

    “This is a relatively new finding, that in some areas of the Middle East and north Africa, there will be, according to the scientific predictions, areas that will no longer be fit for human habitation – beyond the limits for human survival,”

    As if they are now?

    Big Al is shooting for 8 million this year. Or is it also 300 million?

    Al Gore’s passion for the environment and wealth combined became even clearer when he authored An Inconvenient Truth, a synopsis of climate change and its impact on worldwide ecosystems. Although he vowed all of the proceeds from the book and the documentary be put towards the Climate Reality Project, he made an average of $175,000 per speaking engagement, propelling him to multimillionaire status in two year’s time. He co-founded the Current TV network in 2004 and sold it for $500 million in 2012. Mr. Gore has also made millions of dollars from Apple holdings; between 2008 and 2011he raked in well over $10 million from another co-founded start-up company, Generation Investment Management. His late father left him an estimated million dollars worth of oil stocks. All in all, Al gore’s net worth is estimated at well over $200 million and counting.

      For the fake news boys and girls as for Al Gore & Co this could be their last battle. They have nothing to lose. Or they win or we have a new Nuremberg trials. We know who they are and we know where they live. This of course makes them extremely dangerous.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Unfortunately yes.

        Some are saying a 3 million person march (bussed in by Soros) in DC on May first and escalated riots as soon as the weather gets warm. (All sorts of stories but it is obvious the Left wants to get rid of Trump and the US Constitution.)

        It really is time to go after these seditious scumbags.

      Gore is looking to find his missing millions of climate refugees, where better to find them in the ME?

    Nothing like the reappearance of Al gore to give Dr Happer added incentive. (Gore fired him because he would not jump onto the CAGW band wagon.)

    My life will not get back to normal until that sob Gore finally shuts up and disappears.

  5. Shaun says:

    I have to say, when they start trying to spin CO2 as bad for crops, that makes me nervous.. Seeing as how many people are so “passionate” about saving the polar bears, imagine how crazy they will be once they think their own food supply is dwindling..

    I just looked up a list of fruits/veges and their desired CO2 levels, but found the invert. Fruits/veges & CO2 level that is “harmful” … just as good for this purpose. Onions & lettuce top the list with being “harmed” at 1% co2.. Looking up percentage to ppm puts that at 10,000PPM CO2.. The other end of the list – raspberries.. 25% or 250,000PPM..

    I think the plants will be just fine for a good while…

    I check earth.nullschool.net several times a day and I can’t seem to catch an area of the earth with more than ~480ppm for more than a few hours and that is a bad day with more significant out-gassing(and I usually see a “mysterious boom” story in the news the following week for the area).. If that were to double, tomatoes would most likely grow as fast as weeds..

    Could Al be any more disingenuous, let alone dangerous?

    • Tom Harley says:

      Where I live, the biggest ever crop has just been harvested, but not a mysterious boom. Western Australia’s record crop was helped by a solid winter rainfall, despite late frosts in some areas. That’s without irrigation. With irrigation, CO2 has an even bigger influence. Crops will thrive with less H2O and more CO2.

            I want 1500 ppm of CO2.

            When we head into the coming cold dry period either as a new glaciation or as the cold period between to precession-cycle peaks, I want that 500 ppm cushion as the oceans become colder and suck down more CO2. And who knows maybe the extra CO2 will add that tiny bit of extra energy necessary to keep the earth out of a full blown glaciation.

            This is based on Lisiecki and Raymo’s conclusion in A Pliocene-Pleistocene stack of 57 globally distributed benthic D18O records.
            Lisiecki and Raymo produced an exhaustive analysis of 57 globally distributed deep ocean cores reaching back about 5 million years.

            …the June 21 insolation minimum at 65N during MIS 11 is only 489 W/m2, much less pronounced than the present minimum of 474 W/m2. In addition, current insolation values are not predicted to return to the high values of late MIS 11 for another 65 kyr. We propose that this effectively precludes a ‘double precession-cycle’ interglacial [e.g., Raymo, 1997] in the Holocene without human influence….

            The paper Can we predict the duration of an interglacial? agrees and gives the calculated solar insolation values @ 65N on June 22 for several glacial inceptions. The current solar insolation sits in the middle of that cluster.
            ……….

            Most food crops are C3. C4 plants evolved more recently because of CO2 starvation.
            Royal Society: Carbon dioxide starvation, the development of C4 ecosystems

            During the last glaciation we had carbon dioxide starvation in C3 plants AT SEA LEVEL:Carbon starvation in glacial trees recovered from the La Brea tar pits, southern California (Elevation 164 feet.)

            Impact of lower atmospheric carbon dioxide on tropical mountain ecosystems

            Carbon limitation due to lower ambient CO2 partial pressures had a significant impact on the distribution of forest on the tropical mountains, in addition to climate. Hence, tree line elevation should not be used to infer palaeotemperatures.
            www . ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9367947

            “Compound-specific isotope analyses of leaf waxes and algal biomarkers show that organisms possessing CO2-concentrating mechanisms, including C4 grasses and freshwater algae” means plants using C4 pathway and not the older C3 pathway used by trees. As you go up a tropical mountain, low CO2 partial pressure during glaciation, and not temperature limits trees.

            And that does not even get into the drought resistance higher CO2 levels confers to C3 plants because less stomata are needed.
            ………..

            Too bad the Warmists like Griffy, are unable to read and comprehend what these five papers are telling them.

          • cdquarles says:

            Another thing to consider, with respect to C3 plants and C4 ones. C3 plant’s RuBisCo is susceptible to oxygen poisoning, which gives rise to photorespiration. Poisoning of desired chemical reactions is a concentration thing, so low partial pressures of carbon dioxide would contribute to C3 plants being relatively disadvantaged, since C4 plant’s RuBisCo is less susceptible to oxygen poisoning and the resultant photorespiration.

    • John F. Hultquist says:

      Because food crops (all things, actually) grow better with higher CO2 there is more bulk and relatively smaller amounts of nutrients (as mentioned — zink, iron, etc.) by weight, say in a 1 gram sample. How this is construed as the plants “suffer” might require someone with the verbal skills of Bill Clinton to explain.

      Meanwhile, traffic deaths are increasing (now about 40,000 per year) and the MSM seems not to care.

      • Gail Combs says:

        John F. Hultquist,
        I am afraid that is the usual manipulation of the data to show the outcome wanted. It is probably based on the much referenced UC Davis study of wheat and mustard which going only so far as the nitrogen content of the leaves. We don’t eat the leaves we eat the seed!
        ( UC Davis study discussed at WUWT )

        Paraphrased from Dave Springer:
        In one peer reviewed article from 2005 it was found that in durum wheat the nitrogen level in the leaves decreased with higher CO2 but at the same time the nitrogen level in the stems and seeds increased. Both biomass and grain yields increased under all nutrient and water regimes where CO2 was higher.

        The authors of the UC Davis study measured the leaf nitrogen content and found it lower with increased CO2. However, they failed (purposely) to grow the plants to maturity and measure the nitrogen content in the seed. It appears that the plants in the higher CO2 regime are able to use less nitrogen to generate more leaf mass and then deposit the excess nitrogen in the seeds where it will be of benefit to the next generation.

        A lot of information can be found HERE:
        http://www.co2science.org/subject/n/nitrogenefficiency.php

        Atmospheric CO2 and Syrian Wheat Production

        What was done
        The authors grew three commercial cultivars of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) registered in Syria (Cham 1, Cham 3 and Cham 5) from seed in 10-liter pots in different compartments of a phytotron, half of which compartments were maintained at an atmospheric CO2 concentration of approximately 400 ppm and half of which were maintained at a concentration of approximately 1000 ppm. Half of each of these treatments were further subdivided into two soil water treatments: well-watered, where available water content (AWC) was replenished to 90% of full capacity when it had dropped to 60%, and water-stressed, where AWC was replenished to 70% of full capacity when it had dropped to 45%.

        What was learned
        Averaged over the three cultivars, the extra 600 ppm of CO2 supplied to the CO2-enriched compartments led to total plant biomass increases of 62% in the well-watered treatment and 60% in the water-stressed treatment. Also of interest was the fact that the extra CO2 led to increases in the nitrogen concentrations of stems and ears. In the case of ears, nitrogen concentration was increased by 22% in the well-watered plants and by 16% in the water-stressed plants.

        Wheat Production in Stressed Environments

        It certainly is time to DEFUND University of Californicate.

        • Kris Johanson says:

          The UC Davis study isn’t very convincing for a number of reasons:
          1. CO2 has increased by 39 percent since 1800? The most respected treatise in Chemistry from the mid-1800’s (Miller’s intimidating 3-vol set) gives average CO2 in England at 400ppm in 1864 (I posted this somewhere else). Are we absolutely sure it was 320ppm in 1800?
          2. UC Davis pumped up the CO2 and measured less nitrogen in the leaves. There’s ALL SORTS of possible reasons/mechanisms for this. Plants are Eukaryotes, like us; everything in their cells (chemically speaking) gets built by machines with complex feedback & control mechanisms. Are they simply responding to the increased CO2 by cranking out more CELLULOSE and STARCH and sending these to other parts of the plant, at the temporary expense of protein and nucleic acid production? All these processes have to be powered by ATP, which is a limited resource. Plants make “choices” all the time about what to produce and where to send it.
          3. They documented a 7-11% decrease in wheat grain protein. Statements like that DON’T MEAN ANYTHING. You could have larger grain with more starch & cellulose, with the SAME MASS OF PROTEIN, and mathematically have a 7-11% decrease in protein.
          4. Their findings SUGGEST that elevated CO2 decreases photorespiration and nitrate assimilation? These things are easily tested – why weren’t the actual mechanisms documented a little more closely?
          5. Their summary? FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED on how plants assimilate nitrate and ammonium.

          • cdquarles says:

            Elevated carbon dioxide partial pressures directly reduce photorespiration, since the RuBisCo enzyme’s oxygen poisoning is what gives rise to it. Higher partial pressures of carbon dioxide, in the leaf, directly dilute out the effects of oxygen. C3 plant’s RuBisCo is more susceptible to this compared to C4 plant’s RuBisCo.

          • Kris Johanson says:

            cdquarles: I was not aware of that, that’s good info

    • Kris Johanson says:

      Not very many people seem to realize:
      The structural component of all plants is cellulose (and closely related carbon compounds). These are chains of Glucose molecules. Glucose is Carbon. The carbon doesn’t come from the soil, IT COMES FROM THE CO2 IN THE AIR.

      This is known as the Calvin Cycle. This is taught in every high school in America. The mass, the substance, the lumber, the leaves, of every tree comes from CO2. It doesn’t come from the ground. The carbon comes from the scant 400ppm of CO2 wafting around in the air. That’s what photosynthesis is.

      The other problem is the public confuses CO with CO2. These are very different compounds.

      • Kris Johanson says:

        Starch, the other major component of plants, present in all the plant foods we eat – from potatoes to corn to wheat to vegetables – is likewise made of long chains of Glucose. Every molecule of starch, every carbon atom, is sourced from CO2 in the air. The carbon is snatched (fixed) from the CO2 in the process we call photosynthesis.

        CO2 is as necessary to plants as O2 is to us.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Its called the Carbon/Oxygen cycle.

          And it is responsible for ALL LIFE ON EARTH.

          Very little life exists without BOTH CO2 and H2O

      • Gail Combs says:

        A realistic lower limit can be deduced from this field study of wheat (C3).
        “The CO2 concentration at 2 m above the crop was found to be fairly constant during the daylight hours on single days or from day-to-day throughout the growing season ranging from about 310 to 320 p.p.m. Nocturnal values were more variable and were between 10 and 200 p.p.m. higher than the daytime values.” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0002157173900034

        The extreme lower limit of 200 ppm can also be found in green house studies:

        CO2 depletion
        Plant photosynthetic activity can reduce the CO2 within the plant canopy to between 200 and 250 ppm… I observed a 50 ppm drop in within a tomato plant [C3] canopy just a few minutes after direct sunlight at dawn entered a green house (Harper et al 1979) … photosynthesis can be halted when CO2 concentration aproaches 200 ppm… (Morgan 2003) Carbon dioxide is heavier than air and does not easily mix into the greenhouse atmosphere by diffusionSource

        In other words our present day CO2 levels are too close to ‘Starvation levels’ for plants and during the next glaciation, whenever it comes, the corresponding reduction in CO2 levels (plus drought) will be very dangerous to C3 plant life.

        • Kris Johanson says:

          That’s interesting… the tomato leaves actually generate fewer stomata at high CO2 concentrations. So there’s a feedback loop that self-governs the uptake of CO2.

          Hmmm…. I see a potentially-cool AP Biology experiment here

  6. Steve Case says:

    Last year was one of the mildest years on record in the US, with very little extremely hot or cold weather. 2016 also saw also near record low hurricane and tornado activity in the US.

    Extreme weather includes Extreme Mildness

    • RAH says:

      Near record low tornados for sure but the Atlantic Hurricane season was about average even though the Continental US was not hit by anything more than a CAT II.

      BTW the guys at Weatherbell are thinking that it will be a year with higher than average tornadoes but the ENSO indicates a lower than average Atlantic Hurricane season is in the offing.
      So it looks like the chances of the US going another year with a strike by major hurricane are pretty good at this point. Who’ed of thunk it?

  7. AndyG55 says:

    Thank goodness CO2 is still low in Australia, so our crop has not been affected.

    According to NSIDC

    • AndyG55 says:

      Oh , and the “less cold” blob that has been the cause of the slight delay in sea ice formation, has turned to a “more cold” blob in the two main areas that were down a bit.

      I suspect Arctic sea ice will grow rapidly for the next few days at least, probably overtaking several other years.. :-)

    Rex Tillerson fires 7th floor ‘shadow government’

    Americans were stunned to learn of the State Department rogue Shadow Government which operated in secret from the 7th floor. They were behind the corrupt handling of the Clinton documents.

    CBS News announced that Rex Tillerson, the new Secretary of State, fired most of the 7th floor policy makers who so famously called themselves the “shadow government”.

    Policy will be controlled by the White House, not professional diplomats, CBS stated.

    CBS bemoans the loss of the shadow government’s policy-making expertise.

    In October of last year, a NY Post story reported that the coterie of State Department officials who called themselves the “shadow government” controlled the release of the Clinton emails. Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy even offered the FBI a quid pro quo for changing the classification of the Clinton emails….

    Given the illegal leaks leading to Flynn’s firing, it will be very hard to drum up any sympathy for these folks.
