Climate Denial Pervades the Trump White House, But It's Hitting Some Limits
 
The administration's culture of denialism and support for fossil fuels has pushed rollbacks of policies meant to protect public health, safety and the environment.
 
 
 
 
 
JAN 8, 2018

Five years after Donald Trump's infamous "hoax" tweet, in which he called climate change a fiction developed by the Chinese, the president, again on Twitter, reacted to a recent cold snap by saying "we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming"-this, at the tail end of a year that was the United States' third warmest on record.
 
Trump's musings have gone from fringe fantasy to official obfuscation, enshrining a denialism that runs through the core of his administration, from the top down.
 
2017 Year in Review Series
 
Yet signs are beginning to surface that suggest this refusal to accept even the basics of climate science may come up against their limits.
 
Last year, the administration signed off on a comprehensive, government-wide update of the mainstream science that clearly says humans have contributed to atmospheric warming.
 
Then there were rumblings that Scott Pruitt's "red team, blue team" review of climate science could be put on ice. That could stymie calls to overturn the "endangerment finding" that authorizes climate action under the Clean Air Act.
 
Finally, climate hawks in the Senate are rallying to defeat Trump's proposed appointment of Kathleen Hartnett White, who considers carbon dioxide the "gas of life," as head of the Council on Environmental Quality.
 
Still, the pervasive culture of denialism within the administration has enabled the rollback or attempted rollback of dozens of regulations meant to protect public health, safety and the environment through an astonishingly speedy assault that has demoralized EPA workers and prompted hundreds to flee the agency.
 
Trump's 2012 tweet about global warming
 
Here, briefly, a sampling of statements by Trump's top lieutenants about what climate scientists have said is the greatest existential threat to humanity:
 
Vice President Mike Pence: "Claims of catastrophic consequences in global warming are not reflective of the majority of the opinions even among IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) scientists."
 
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: "The increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are having an effect. Our ability to predict that effect is very limited."
 
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt: "I would not agree that [carbon dioxide] is a primary driver to the global warming that we see."
 
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, when asked whether carbon dioxide is the main driver of climate change: "No. Most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in." He also called climate change "one contrived phony mess."
 
Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue: "... we don't know definitively, in my opinion, what is causing climate change."
 
Nominee to lead the Council on Environmental Quality Kathleen Hartnett White: "An invisible, harmless trace gas in the Earth's atmosphere, CO2 is a plant food."
 
Action has accompanied the words. The administration has scrubbed government websites of climate change-related information, effectively purged advisory boards of qualified scientists and replaced them with scientists from regulated industries, is attempting to roll back the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan, has moved to reverse fuel economy standards and is attempting to withdraw from the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement.
 
Denial Seeps Into Agencies, Trump Voters' Views
 
Beyond policy changes, there's an attempted cultural shift, a less obvious effect that is permeating the consciousness of voters.
 
According to an October poll by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, seven in 10 registered American voters, or 72 percent, think global warming is happening, barely changed from 2008. On the other hand, only 37 percent of conservative Republicans think global warming is occurring-13 percentage points lower than in 2008 and, significantly, nine points lower than one year ago, shortly after Trump's election.
 
The tenor of the administration is likely seeping into government agencies, too, in more or less obvious ways.
 
"These folks set the tone of the conversation both within the agencies and outward, toward the public," explained Michael Oppenheimer an atmospheric scientist at Princeton University and a coordinating author of the IPCC. "Although many career employees will continue their work as before, the signal from above will be 'you are wasting your time' at best or 'keep it up and your career will be in danger' at worst. This is bound to slow progress on science and reverse progress on policy, as is already happening."
 
Attacking the Endangerment Finding
 
Still, the real prize for the administration is going to prove difficult.
 
The "endangerment finding"-the EPA's foundational conclusion that forms the basis of greenhouse gas regulations-is directly in the crosshairs of the administration and its staunchest allies in the fossil fuel industry and Congress.
 
Recently, Pruitt said he would hold a public "red team, blue team" exercise to challenge the basis for the finding and the broader scientific consensus on climate change. The concept, Pruitt has said, is to provide an "objective" debate on climate change and carbon dioxide, with mainstream scientists on one side and climate skeptics on the other. Scientists have completely trounced the concept, noting that the scientific consensus around climate change, embodied in sweeping government reports, is already robustly peer-review and has been through a "red team, blue team" process already.
 
Unfortunately for those who want to dismantle the endangerment finding, there's the most recent National Climate Assessment's Climate Science Special Report, released this fall, which affirmed that human-caused emissions of greenhouse gases are the primary driver of climate change. The report, mandated by law, requires the administration to sign off on it. And while many critics of the administration worried about possible tinkering with the findings in the report, its conclusions were unvarnished.
 
That the government signed off on the most robust, comprehensive report of its kind-one that upholds the conclusion of mainstream scientists-will make it nearly impossible to unravel the government's position, despite the rhetoric from the administration.
 
"For one thing, this summarizes new and stronger evidence for human causation of climate change, and discusses dangerous impacts," said Philip Duffy, executive director of the Woods Hole Research Center, who was a member of the committee that reviewed the report.
 
"We've learned a lot about this since the original endangerment finding, nearly 10 years ago," he said. "Beyond this, the report was reviewed by the National Academy of Sciences and approved by 13 federal agencies, so it has a strong pedigree and a lot of credibility."

Why are climate-change-deniers clustered in North America?
 
Why are they not spread evenly around the planet?

2017 "costliest" year in U.S. with weather, climate disasters: gov't report
 
 
 
 
 
2018-01-09
 
 
 
 
 
Last year will be remembered as the "costliest" one for the United States with losses from hurricanes, fires and freezes reaching a record 306 billion U.S. dollars, a U.S. government report said Monday.
 
The United States had 16 weather and climate disasters in 2017 each with losses exceeding one billion dollars, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in its report.
 
That ties 2011 for the record number of billion-dollar disasters for an entire calendar year, but the total cost shatters the previous U.S. annual record of 214.8 billion dollars in 2005, the agency said.
 
At least 362 people died and many more were injured during the course of the disasters that included one drought event, two flooding events, one freeze event, eight severe storm events, three tropical cyclone events, and one wildfire event, it said.
 
Among the disasters are the western U.S. wildfires that caused damages tallying 18 billion dollars, which was triple the previous U.S. record, said the report.
 
Losses from Hurricane Harvey, which caused massive flooding in Texas, exceeded 125 billion dollars, which ranked second only to Hurricane Katrina, the costliest storm in the 38-year period of record.
 
Hurricanes Maria and Irma had total damages of 90 billion dollars and 50 billion dollars, respectively.
 
Hurricane Maria now ranks as third costliest weather and climate disaster on record for the nation, with Irma coming in close behind as fifth costliest, it said.
 
"Since 1980, the U.S. has sustained 219 weather and climate disasters that have exceeded 1.5 trillion dollars in overall damages to date," the U.S. agency wrote.
 
"The 1980-2017 annual average is 5.8 events; the annual average for the most recent five years (2013-2017) is 11.6 events."
 
The U.S. agency also said that the average U.S. temperature in 2017 was 54.6 degrees Fahrenheit (12.6 degrees Celsius), 2.6 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average.
 
"This was the third warmest year since record keeping began in 1895, behind 2012 (55.3 degrees Fahrenheit) and 2016 (54.9 degrees Fahrenheit), and the 21st consecutive warmer-than-average year for the U.S. (1997 through 2017)," the report said.
 
In fact, the five warmest years on record for the contiguous U.S. have all occurred since 2006, it noted, reflecting a long-term warming trend.

 Again you lying douchebag they are...I have posted twice now that the Gillard govt in Australia was thrown out of Government because they brought in the carbon tax and it was repealed when she was thrown out.....

 

Gee amazing how you GloBULL warming cultists just ignore facts...

 

So tell us Grog how you tards in the warming cult actually managed to move Australia into North America?...now that would be interesting

 

Like they say...the cult of Globull warming is an insane bunch of lying lunatics that just make shit up

As Rob said...Grogs neanderthal avatard makes sense now...he is nuts.....

Doomsday cults have existed since the dawn of time, and the global warming panic is the most widespread doomsday cult in existence today. People have been donning sackcloths, smothering their faces in ash, and heading out to the deserts to be swept away in a purge of cataclysmic fury that ultimately never came, since time immemorial.

 

The big media houses like to showcase the small practitioners of the apocalyptic philosophy today, like the itinerant preacher with dozens of followers in California, or even David Koresh in Texas with a compound filled with devotees. Alas, the biggest doomsday cult of them all, so large that it seemingly goes unnoticed as a cult, is the nutty, world-is-melting if we all do not repent and change our ways, cult of global warming.

The retarded part about the fake scientists that went to antarctica to study "melting ice" was that they went in the summer and were ready with their video cameras to show us all that the ice was melting (which is normal in summer in Antarctica)...but it didn't happen and they were stuck with in the ice and a Chinese ice breaker was contracted to rescue them which also got stuck in the ice.

And we have Al Gores desciple Grog on here flooding the forum with spam that globull warming is real when he never mentions the stupid stunts they do and have been busted in being wrong....

Grog and his lies by ommission is revoltng
