- Tea Party News Network: Priorities: Fourth of July Cancelled for Military Bases While the Obamas Tour Africa on the Taxpayer Dime. Though we ask our soldiers to risk life and limb for their country, many soldiers will be unable to see the rocket’s red glare this year as we celebrate our nation’s birthday. But don’t worry; The Obamas are reportedly having a great time on their taxpayer-funded vacation to Africa. Fourth of July celebrations have been cancelled at Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and at the Army’s Fort Bragg. The fourth of July celebrations have also been cancelled at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia. The Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina have also cancelled their Fourth of July celebrations as well as the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii and New Jersey’s Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. All of the celebrations have been cancelled due to budgetary restraints. The Tea Party is a fiscally conservative organization and we advocate small, limited government. Though Senator Harry Reid and other hysterics would like to label us “anarchists” or advocates of no government, we are merely advocates of small government that makes good decisions with taxpayer money.
People are forgetting what was revealed in Climategate, 2009. Why do people gravitate toward the elite whose sole desire/purpose in life is to control others?
To provide an example that freedom can be lost no matter which traditional political entity is in charge, take a trip into cyberspace and visit Real Science and Steven Goddard. A parody website is also out there who frets over the fact that Mr. Goddard seems to be a mystery man, yet his name pops up when it comes to discussion of “climate change” formerly called “global warming” by the progressives.
I am a follower of his blog and the gist of his blog concerns climate change, his blog motto:
Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts. [Richard Feynman]
Global Warming has been proven to be a fantasy, in respect to human footprints causing regional or global climate change; yet our government, and governments elsewhere are spending billions of dollars to combat something that cannot be changed. At least in known technology, which we can never reach as long as people pay attention to junk scientists. Of course, the progressives, when they are confronted with facts, instead of admitting that people were bamboozled by junk scientists and opportunists like Al Gore – changed the term from global warming to climate change – still blaming it all upon human footprint. Instead of looking to blame humanity, they should be looking to the source that definitely does have effects upon weather and other factors about the planet Earth – the Sun, which is a star in our solar system.
Don’t get me wrong, I am for cleaning up the air, but we often overlook how badly polluted so much water sources have become and we are not doing enough for that real problem. However, the sun’s recent hyper-activities is more likely to be at fault than emission controlled vehicles and aircraft that is being used today.
…there’s a clear link to climate change. … Is this a result, this disconnect, the result of the oil lobby successfully confusing the public? How do we convince the people that it’s real and that it’s caused by people?

We are millions of people speaking up for solutions. We can solve the climate crisis if we take action now. …

The more I write about global warming, the more I realize I share some things in common with the doubters and deniers who populate the blogosphere and the conservative movement. Like them, I am dubious about the process used by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to write its reports. Like them, I am skeptical of the so-called consensus on climate science as reflected in the IPCC reports. Like them, I disagree with people who say “the science is settled.” But that’s where the agreement ends.
The science isn’t settled – it’s unsettling, and getting more so every year as the scientific community learns more about the catastrophic consequences of uncontrolled greenhouse gas emissions.

Pundits, politicians and the media thought they had a reputable entity to back up their global warming diatribe – NASA. Michael Fumento states in his article Global Warming and James Hansen’s Hacks in which he tells readers that we should look more closely …
In retrospect, you knew there would be trouble when you put the people responsible for the Space Shuttle program in charge of tracking U.S. temperatures. So perhaps it shouldn’t have come as a big surprise when it was revealed that NASA committed a bit of an oopsie regarding data constantly used by the mainstream media and other global warming proponents. If you follow the global warming debate, you “know” that nine of the ten warmest years recorded in the U.S. lower 48 since 1880 have occurred since 1995, with the very hottest being 1998. But whaddya know! Those figures are wrong. Data from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) now show the hottest year since 1880 was 1934. …Indeed, four of the 10 hottest years were in the 1930s, while only three were in the past decade. The real 15 hottest years are spread over seven decades. …
Rush Limbaugh was incorrect in saying the new figures are “just more evidence” that “this whole global warming thing is a scientific hoax.” Conversely, global warming hotheads are also wrong in insisting the revelation belongs in a game of Trivial Pursuit.
The GISS, which is directed by global warming guru James Hansen, is saying likewise. … the GISS ignores the tremendous emotional impact it’s had in practically claiming each year is hotter than the one before. …
But, notes Canadian mathematician Stephen McIntyre, who exposed the false figures, “The Hansen error … has a significant impact on the GISS estimate of U.S. temperature history … Is this important because we’re a major world power or that we produce the best fried chicken? No, it’s important because we have a far more sophisticated system of temperature monitoring than countries with far larger land masses. Hence, data from each of these nations affect the global model more than the American data.
“Many of the stations in China, Indonesia, Brazil, and elsewhere are in urban areas,” observes McIntyre. This can produce hotter temperatures, yet some of the major trackers of the data from these countries, including the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, make no attempt to adjust for monitor placement errors. …
Thus if the U.S. model, by far the most accurate one, became the model it would be a gut punch to those claiming we must take drastic, horrifically expense measures right now to ameliorate warming. Therefore, for the GISS to say this “only” affects the U.S. data is rather like a used car salesman insisting, “This automobile defect is trivial; it only affects steering and braking.” …
McIntyre discovered an error in GISS records for the years 2000 through 2006. In simplest terms, they hadn’t been adjusted to compensate for the location or time of day where the data was gathered. Nobody at GISS ever correlated those newer figures with the older ones until McIntyre did, even though later Hansen admitted it was “easy to fix.” McIntyre published the data on his own website and got the agency to admit it was wrong and post new figures.
Yet the GISS did absolutely nothing to alert scientists or the public to the new figures. This though it has published five global warming press releases so far this year, each one alarming. It took the blogosphere and radio talk show hosts to publicize the new figures even as the mainstream media initially ignored it.
Ultimately the greatest importance of all of this is that it strongly appears to substantiate the intuitive belief that, with scientist-politician Hansen at the helm the GISS, whose data are far more important to modeling global temperatures – and hence global warming policy – that it lets on, is not a neutral collector and disseminator of statistics but rather a politicized mouthpiece.
And that is the gist of it, isn’t it. Politicians are willing to allow junk scientists and their false science persuades the American people and the people of other nations to pay the heavy price (their tax funds) of their false science, when such funding could be used for other things.
I am not denying that there are changing patterns in climate; this has been going on for as long as Earth’s history. And during that history there have been major changes – over longer periods of time that what the politocrat-scientists claim. Looking at the studies of CO2 and examining the climate during the period when dinosaurs roamed the Earth – is global warming so bad? Plant life was prolific, and had to be to feed the huge plant eaters that roamed at the time. Of course, there were violent changes and weather patterns then as well – some being catastrophic volcanic activity. Many ships of the seas went down in violent storms during hurricane season in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of the newly found Americas. Was that global warming? In fact, records show that during the medieval age there was a warming in Europe. The ice caps were in place then and they no doubt would have seen massive ice pieces the size of a small country drifting away from the massive ice shelf to turn into icebergs and eventually move to warmer seas where they melted – with no perceptible notice of any change to coastlines. However, there were changes in coastlines, some of it caused by the force of the tide and other reasons because of the slow process of land silting – the opposite effect of what “experts” say will happen to our blue planet. The historic city of Ephesus has a dock that sits on dry land with the sea almost two kilometers away – because of silting. In other areas along the Mediterranean Sea there are ruins of Roman towns that once were on dry land under the sea along the coastline.
Maybe, in the future, the arctic ice will melt away revealing the land mass that was once there before it became buried under miles of ice and snow, as it was revealed by Peri Reis’smap. And not many have considered that it is the Earth’s sun, a star, is the cause of these fluctuations in climate involving the sun’s influence. It is an astronomically scientific fact that the sun, a star, will end up burning up eons from now. Is this a human factor is it just the natural way of the universe?
Yes, we need to use logical conservation and keep our world as ecologically balanced as possible, but we need to laugh the politically motivated scientists off the stage, those who come up with “theories” that are presented as facts, and those who would use the media and other informational sources to make the public believe that their falsely based “data” requires spending and using human resources for an endeavor that is not as important as other issues on the table.
And, when all is said and done – If the climate is truly changing so drastically – What in the name of science could anyone do about it? The data shows nothing in terms of human interference in climate, nor does it show that we should do anything more than plan on a possibility of our coastlines to change. They have been changing all along anyway.
It’s time to laugh the clowns off the stage before this nonsense becomes US policy, much like the European nations have fallen under the sway of junk scientists, and before we allow our governments to waste more tax dollars on politically motivated alarmism.
