A Simple Experiment Disproves the Climate Change Alarmists ⋆ The Constitution

By Adrian Vance

Climate Alarmist Dr. Joe Romm claims atmospheric CO2 will rise to 910 parts per million, ppm, by the year 2100 where today it is 390 ppm, a 233% increase in 84 years and turn America into Death Valley.  We simulate this with two 2.5 liter plastic bottles for a shocking outcome costing less than $10, with no million Dollar grant or trips to exotic places to read papers, eat truffles and drink Champagne on your Federal tax Dollars.

In addition to the bottles, we need two lab “stick” thermometers, 650 milliliters of pure water, 1/8th tsp. of baking soda and a few drops of Distilled White Vinegar to simulate the 2100 AD atmosphere of America as predicted by Dr. Romm.  We suggest this be done in every General Science classroom in America.  It is low in cost and highly educational.

The bottles must be clear, not tinted, and “2.5 liters.”  There are other sizes and it is critical.  Lab thermometers are $2.39 each on Ebay.  Baking soda and “White Distilled Vinegar” are common pantry items plus a medicine dropper is common in most homes or $1.00 in a drug store.


Thermometer accuracy is easily confirmed by putting them into a tall glass of ice and water, where they should say 0° Celsius. Then, into a pot of boiling water where they should say 100° Celsius if you are at sea level.  If you are above sea level the boiling point will be lower.

In Chicago, at 650 ft,  it is 99.5° C, which is the level for most of the nation east of the Mississippi, but in Denver, at 5280 ft. it is 95° C and the far west is all over the place with Death Valley below sea level where the boiling point is 101°C!  Nonetheless, we are only interested in how thermometers track one another.  They must be consistent.  If one is a degree warmer than the other it must be consistently so through the 20 to 35 degree range.

Put both thermometers in a glass two cup measure with one cup of cold tap water.  Wait a few minutes then read the thermometers. They will say 15 to 20 degrees. Add one cup of hot water from that tap and track the change as it will rise from the temperature of house cold water to the higher temperature of the hot and cold water mix.  And, they should move through the range together or with the same difference consistently.  If not return the unit not showing the correct temperature in ice water.

Plastic bottle caps are drilled by a Phillips screwdriver with a 1/4 inch shaft with the tip held over a candle flame for 30 seconds.  The handle insulates heat so you can hold it. The hot tip goes through plastic like butter leaving a hole just large enough for a thermometer.  Both thermometers are pushed into the caps three inches while the plastic is soft.  On cooling they freeze in place, but can be removed later with careful twisting using your thumb and forefinger near the cap.

The volume of the “2.5 liter” soda bottle is actually 2,725 milliliters. Use bottled water, to avoid municipal water chlorine and fluorine, putting 325 milliliters into each for a net air volume of 2.4 liters over water.  This simulates Earth’s air as 71% is covered by water and the green areas put almost as much water vapor into air as do the seas.

2.4 liters is 1/10th “molar volume” of air at 20° Celsius, the normal room temperature in the United States. “Molar” refers to “mole,” a contraction of “molecular” and means the volume of a gas with a mass of one molecular weight in grams.

For experimental work we use molar volumes for accuracy.  The details are cumbersome so we omit them here, but present them completely at:


We set up the two bottles, one with water alone, labeled “2016 AD” air with 390 ppm of CO2 naturally and “2100 AD” with 910 ppm artificially.  This can be done outside, but we favor a window sill as these bottles are easily tipped by a breeze and window glass does not block infrared, IR, energy. When the sun is low little IR comes through all the air. After 10 AM, when the sun angle is above 45 degrees, IR passes through less air and the glass where it cannot when the angle is less than 45 degrees.  Be sure the thermometers are shaded from direct sun with foil “hats,” only reading the temperature of the air in the flasks.

The two temperatures rise as the sun elevates and fall slowly after noon until 3 PM, then fall quickly as solar radiation passes through more atmosphere.

To test the effect of increasing CO2 in our atmosphere from the 390 ppm of today to 910 ppm for the year 2100 AD as claimed by Dr. Joe Romm, we only need to put half a 1/8th teaspoon of baking soda in the “2100 AD” bottle, swirling to dissolve it.  We need 1.25 drops of White Distilled Vinegar and can make a perfect dose by taking two drops of the acid, add six drops of water and then use five drops of that solution in the simulator.

Put the cap with thermometer on and let it sit overnight to react fully to  create the Romm 910 ppm CO2 air of 2100 AD.  Put the two bottles in a window sill and record their temperatures each hour.  What do we see?

According to Dr. Romm the 2100 AD bottle will get hot, going over 40 Celsius degrees, 104 Fahrenheit!  But what happens?  The 2100 AD bottle tracks precisely with the 2016 bottle air with less CO2 in it!  The CO2 was an insignificant component of the atmosphere at 390 PPM and it would be at 910 PPM.  It is just that simple.  As we have seen, “warmists” are prone to overplay everything from polar bear deaths to all the ice melting at the poles when there are more polar bears than ever in history, probably because they are getting fat on the Five Star garbage left by warmist scientists.

For 150 years atmospheric scientists have required a gas must have at least one percent of the atmosphere to be significant.  We can add enough CO2 to make that the case in our simulator.  Our one-tenth molar volume simulator

needs 24 ml of CO2 which we can generate by taking four drops of the acid, adding one drop of water and then using four drops of that in the second bottle for a 20% dilution.

One percent is 10,000 parts per million, ppm, which shows the real effect of CO2 in the atmosphere and by having a “control” bottle tracking ordinary air over water we will see that it is a cooling component.


If Dr. Romm were correct the air in the “2100 AD” bottle would heat faster and more than the “2016 AD” flask, perhaps going over 40º C by noon, but it declines!  This dashes all alarmist claims.  Without them they will get no grants, book contracts, TV appearances or tenure.  When realized it will kill the gravy train of academia.  This is an undeniable fact!  Many of academia feel they are entitled to wealth and fame because they are “smart.”

Virtually everything written and published about “global warming” and/or “climate change” has been fraudulent and done by those seeking political power, government grants, high-paying government jobs or academic tenure as the colleges and universities are dependent on Federal money.  It is just another tale of corruption in America and you can prove it with a two soda bottles, a box of baking soda, a bottle of vinegar and one medicine dropper.

Obama and the U.N. Collude to “Beef Up” and Nationalize America’s Police Departments – Minutemen News


This won’t come as a surprise.  Obama and the United Nations are on another quest to “beef up” and nationalize America’s police departments.  This is just another of the numerous initiatives by the U.N. to attack our Constitution and our rights as citizens.

The New American reports – After recently demanding everything from “robust gun control” and reparations for slavery to constitutional amendments altering the supreme law of the land, the United Nations has now publicly endorsed the Obama administration’s illegal efforts to federalize America’s local police departments. A UN official also offered to provide “technical assistance” to the U.S. government in implementing its radical demands.   

Specifically, a UN official from Kenya touted one of the many schemes used by the White House to impose unconstitutional federal regulations on local law enforcement. Dubbed “consent decrees,” the plot involves extremist bureaucrats at the Obama Justice Department threatening, bullying, and suing city governments into submission to Obama’s demands. The UN “lawyer” called for the administration’s commandeering of cops to be “beefed up” and “increased” to help nationalize as many of America’s police departments as possible.

Citing “international law,” the UN figure also attacked gun rights and the concealed carry of firearms. The latest UN assault on the God-given rights to keep and bear arms, protected by state and U.S. constitutions, came after a deluge of similar attacks coming from the global body, and its widely ridiculed “Human Rights Council” in particular. While the U.S. government is not currently represented, some of the most ruthless communist and Islamist dictatorships on the planet enjoy seats on the outfit

The UN bureaucrat boasted of the Obama administration’s “cooperation” in the supposed investigation. However, the reaction to the UN’s attacks was swift, with criticism of the UN, often ridiculed by critics as the “dictators club,” making headlines across America after being posted on the Drudge Report, the world’s top news and information site.

March, 2015 (more than a year ago), Rep. Mike Rogers introduced a bill (H.R. 1205: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015) The bill had seven co-sponsors and was assigned to the House Foreign Affairs committee (Chariman: Ed Royce). There were no roll call votes, so it basically died in committee.

Here are the names of the original co-sponsors: John “Jimmy” Duncan (R-TN2), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS1), Maggie Thomas (R-KY4), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA3), Ted Yoho (R-FL3), Jeff Duncan (R-SC3), and Walter Jones (R-NC3)

Start contacting your representatives, and even these who supported the bill, to see if we can get this bill reintroduced, or a similar one pushed through.

We must get out of the U.N.!

Independence Day – Tea Party Nation

We at Tea Party Nation wish you a happy Independence Day.  And we encourage you to take a moment and read the document that gave us a free nation.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. —

Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

  • For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  • For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
  • For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
  • For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
  • For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
  • For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
  • For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.1377023_632027936839875_306360385_n

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.Image

Gun Control, Terror Watchlist — The NRA and the Rule of Law

By Dave Dolbee published on June 30, 2016 in News

America witnessed a remarkable and telling legislative showdown last week that revolved around a very simple concept underlying American democracy. That concept is due process. Some were willing to discard it for the sake of politics and the illusion of safety. Others were not. Here is what the NRA had to say about it:

Senate Judiciary Committee

Unable to sway the Congress to enact his gun control agenda, the president is trying to upset the Founding Father’s system of checks and balances by going it alone.

A series of untenable gun control proposals – some which would have placed your Second Amendment rights at the mercy of bureaucratic fiat, black lists, and secret “evidence” – were defeated.

But the degree to which some were willing to abandon foundational principles for short-term and self-serving political gain should serve as a sobering reminder to all that American freedom is not free and that we should never think our government will simply default to it. The Founders understood that, which is why we have a written Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Proponents of gun control tried to portray the showdown as being over those who wanted terrorists to have guns and those who don’t. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), a gun control standard-bearer, disgraced the dignity of his office by claiming “Republicans have decided to sell weapons to ISIS.”

Think about how ridiculous that statement is.

And it becomes all the more ridiculous in light of how strenuously President Obama, who embodies the values and agenda of Murphy’s politics, tried to deflect the blame for the Orlando terrorist attack away from radical Islamic jihad, the asserted basis of the attacker himself.

I am a bill cartoon

While the defenders of the Second Amendment have seen significant victories over the past year a couple of recent losses are troubling.

Obama loyalists desperately tried to portray NRA and the Second Amendment as the culprits in the Orlando attacks. During a series of publicity stunts – including Murphy’s “filibuster” on the Senate Floor and a “sit-in” by members of Congress on the House Floor – America heard again and again that gun control is now a matter of national security.

During times of fear and crisis, it’s easy to forget what we’re about as a country. It’s natural for opportunistic and ambitious politicians to grab more power for themselves. It’s natural for entrenched authority to demonize opposition and try to suppress dissent. We saw all of that this past week.

But America has always tried to be better than that, which is why the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It is greater than any individual. It is mightier than any institution. And it states that no person shall be “deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law ….” Whatever else Obama, Murphy, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and their surrogates in the media tried to make this past week’s contentious legislative efforts about, that’s what was at stake.

The government cannot arbitrarily deny or withhold rights. When someone’s life, liberty, or property is at stake, the person has a right to notice and the opportunity to respond, and the government bears the burden of making its case before a neutral decision-maker as to why its actions are justified. Without these simple principles, we are not a country of laws.

But that was too much for Feinstein, Murphy, and their anti-gun Senate colleagues. They would settle for nothing less than giving bureaucrats the authority to deny gun purchases at will, without any proving of their case. They would not stand (literally, in the case of their House counterparts) to require the government, if it were later sued over the deprivation, to have to prove anything other than a basis for its own “reasonable suspicion” against the individual. The want to let the government, in other words, retroactively rationalize its decision to abolish a fundamental right – not by actually proving a person is somehow a public safety risk because of nexus to terrorism – but by demonstrating it was not “unreasonable” in “suspecting” so at the time.

05 itshouldnotbecalledguncontrol

That’s not due process.

Make no mistake, the NRA does not want terrorists to have legal – or illegal – access to firearms.  NRA members have fought and died in the war on terror so we take a backseat to no one when it comes to national security.

Freedom endured this week in the U.S. Senate, but it would not have been possible without the dedication of NRA members who were willing to stand up and contact their elected officials in the face of this latest threat.  NRA members flooded Congressional switchboards in just a few short days, and it worked.  Your continued vigilance has always been what makes the NRA the strongest civil rights organization in the world.

At the same time, our victory would not have been possible without the Second Amendment leadership of Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA).  Both senators introduced legislation to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners and worked tirelessly against passage of the gun control legislation introduced by Feinstein, Murphy, and others.  We could not have been successful without them.

But let’s be careful to not consider the battle over.  The Senate will remain in session this coming week, so your continued pressure is needed.  Gun control proposals could go well beyond the amendments that were voted on last week, so please contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative immediately and let them know you oppose any new gun control measures. You can call your lawmakers at 202-224-3121 or click here to Take Action.

Did the NRA get it right? What will you do to defeat future gun control measures and support the Second Amendment? Share your plans in the comment section.

Army Ranger at Benghazi: Liberal Media Demonizes Guns After Orlando But Here’s What I’d Do for Them

ORLANDO, FL - JUNE 12: <> on June 12, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. (Photo by Gerardo Mora/Getty Images)

Since the Orlando terror attack, many media outlets have rushed to blame a lack of gun laws for the tragedy. And the calls for increased gun regulation have amplified…

Independent Journal Review chose to get the perspective of someone who had also experienced an American tragedy firsthand.

We talked to Kris Paronto, an ex-Army Ranger, who survived the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The Hollywood film “13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is based off his and his teammates’ harrowing experiences on the ground.

Paronto didn’t mince words about Orlando or those who rush to blame guns for what is being called the worst mass shooting on American soil ever.

Paronto said:

“It has nothing to do with the weapons that were used. It has to do with the ideology involved with the attacker. Whether he got trained in the states or got his ideology online, the weapons system makes no difference at all.

If I would have been in the nightclub with a M4 or M16 I would have shot the guy before he killed 49 people. The media is trying to demonize the weapon in the name of gun control.

Look, a weapon system is a tool like a hammer. It’s like anything else. In the wrong hands it can be used to hurt people and in the right hands — it’s a hammer.

In every one of these countries where they are terrorists, they have guns. I’ve been to these areas and seen what the jihadis are capable of. And they may be armed with an AK-47, but it’s their belief system and ideology that kills people. The AK-47 doesn’t fire itself.”

Paronto continued:

“Mateen went after a group that he knew was going to be an easy target. I don’t get why liberals keep spinning this into a gun control issue. Maybe it’s because the president can’t say it.

This is terrorists killing innocent people. He would have got that gun in any way. I’ve been around it in Benghazi and elsewhere. I’ve killed terrorists.

It’s always the ideology that drives them to squeeze the trigger or strap a bomb to their chest.

So we need to wake up and figure this out. Or they will be more attacks and we will have more tragedies like Orlando.

We need to have armed security in these places. I’ll stand at a door with a gun. I did it for ten years. It may make people uncomfortable in the club. But guess what, you’re going to go home alive.”

He took a shot at anyone politicizing Orlando:

“The politicizing of Orlando pisses me off. It’s less than human. The reason being is because people died that night and that’s where the focus needs to be. So we need to look at what took place and mourn.

It’s time to heal and making such a tragedy all about blaming the weapon is disgusting. Anyone trying to use it for political gain is worthless.”

A leader doesn’t go on TV and politicize. They take a breath, go in the back room and figure out exactly what happened.”

Then, Paronto told me what he wants the “liberal media” to know more than anything else:

“As the media is demonizing the weapon system in Orlando, they have no idea that if they were under attack, I would pick up a gun.

And I would stand right in front of them and take a bullet. And I’d try to take down as many bad guys as I could even if I was outmatched.”

Paronto concluded, “Because it’s the right thing to do. The American thing to do…”

“And because it’s what I was trained to do as a Ranger — protect the lives of others who are unable to protect themselves.”

Deep-Sixing Another Useful Climate Myth – David Legates

By now, virtually everyone has heard that “97% of scientists agree:  Climate change is real, manmade and dangerous.” Even if you weren’t one of his 31 million followers who received this tweet from President Obama, you most assuredly have seen it repeated everywhere as scientific fact.

The correct representation is “yes,” “some,” and “no.” Yes, climate change is real. There has never been a period in Earth’s history when the climate has not changed somewhere, in one way or another. 

People can and do have some influence on our climate. For example, downtown areas are warmer than the surrounding countryside, and large-scale human development can affect air and moisture flow. But humans are by no means the only source of climate change. The Pleistocene ice ages, Little Ice Age and monster hurricanes throughout history underscore our trivial influence compared to natural forces.

As for climate change being dangerous, this is pure hype based on little fact. Mile-high rivers of ice burying half of North America and Europe were disastrous for everything in their path, as they would be today. Likewise for the plummeting global temperatures that accompanied them. An era of more frequent and intense hurricanes would also be calamitous; but actual weather records do not show this.

It would be far more deadly to implement restrictive energy policies that condemn billions to continued life without affordable electricity – or to lower living standards in developed countries – in a vain attempt to control the world’s climate. In much of Europe, electricity prices have risen 50% or more over the past decade, leaving many unable to afford proper wintertime heat, and causing thousands to die.


Moreover, consensus and votes have no place in science. History is littered with theories that were long denied by “consensus” science and politics: plate tectonics, germ theory of disease, a geocentric universe. They all underscore how wrong consensus can be.

Science is driven by facts, evidence and observations – not by consensus, especially when it is asserted by deceitful or tyrannical advocates. As Einstein said, “A single experiment can prove me wrong.”

During this election season, Americans are buffeted by polls suggesting which candidate might become each party’s nominee or win the general election. Obviously, only the November “poll” counts.

Similarly, several “polls” have attempted to quantify the supposed climate change consensus, often by using simplistic bait-and-switch tactics. “Do you believe in climate change?” they may ask.

Answering yes, as I would, places you in the President’s 97% consensus and, by illogical extension, implies you agree it is caused by humans and will be dangerous. Of course, that serves their political goal of gaining more control over energy use.

The 97% statistic has specific origins. Naomi Oreskes is a Harvard professor and author of Merchants of Doubt, which claims those who disagree with the supposed consensus are paid by Big Oil to obscure the truth. In 2004, she claimed to have examined the abstracts of 928 scientific papers and found a 100% consensus with the claim that the “Earth’s climate is being affected by human activities.”

Of course, this is probably true, as it is unlikely that any competent scientist would say humans have no impact on climate. However, she then played the bait-and-switch game to perfection – asserting that this meant “most of the observed warming of the last 50 years is likely to have been due to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations.”

However, one dissenter is enough to discredit the entire study, and what journalist would believe any claim of 100% agreement? In addition, anecdotal evidence suggested that 97% was a better figure. So 97% it was.

Then in 2010, William Anderegg and colleagues concluded that “97–98% of the climate researchers most actively publishing in the field support … [the view that] … anthropogenic greenhouse gases have been responsible for most of the unequivocal warming of the Earth’s average global temperature” over a recent but unspecified time period. (Emphasis in original.)

To make this extreme assertion, Anderegg et al. compiled a database of 908 climate researchers who published frequently on climate topics, and identified those who had “signed statements strongly dissenting from the views” of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The 97–98% figure is achieved by counting those who had not signed such statements.

Silence, in Anderegg’s view, meant those scientists agreed with the extreme view that most warming was due to humans. However, nothing in their papers suggests that all those researchers believed humans had caused most of the planetary warming, or that it was dangerous.

The most recent 97% claim was posited by John Cook and colleagues in 2013. They evaluated abstracts from nearly 12,000 articles published over a 21-year period and sorted them into seven categories, ranging from “explicit, quantified endorsement” to “explicit, quantified rejection” of their alleged consensus: that recent warming was caused by human activity, not by natural variability. They concluded that “97.1% endorsed the consensus position.”

However, two-thirds of all those abstracts took no position on anthropogenic climate change. Of the remaining abstracts (not the papers or scientists), Cook and colleagues asserted that 97.1% endorsed their hypothesis that humans are the sole cause of recent global warming.

Again, the bait-and-switch was on full display. Any assertion that humans play a role was interpreted as meaning humans are the sole cause. But many of those scientists subsequently said publicly that Cook and colleagues had misclassified their papers – and Cook never tried to assess whether any of the scientists who wrote the papers actually thought the observed climate changes were dangerous.

My own colleagues and I did investigate their analysis more closely. We found that only 41 abstracts of the 11,944 papers Cook and colleagues reviewed – a whopping 0.3% – actually endorsed their supposed consensus. It turns out they had decided that any paper which did not provide anexplicit, quantified rejection of their supposed consensus was in agreement with the consensus. Moreover, this decision was based solely on Cook and colleagues’ interpretation of just the abstracts, and not the articles themselves.  In other words, the entire exercise was a clever sleight-of-hand trick.

What is the real figure? We may never know. Scientists who disagree with the supposed consensus – that climate change is manmade and dangerous – find themselves under constant attack.

Harassment by Greenpeace and other environmental pressure groups, the media, federal and state government officials, and even universities toward their employees (myself included) makes it difficult for many scientists to express honest opinions. Recent reports about Senator Whitehouse and Attorney-General Lynch using RICO laws to intimidate climate “deniers” further obscure meaningful discussion. 

Numerous government employees have told me privately that they do not agree with the supposed consensus position – but cannot speak out for fear of losing their jobs. And just last week, a George Mason University survey found that nearly one-third of American Meteorological Society members were willing to admit that at least half of the climate change we have seen can be attributed to natural variability.

Climate change alarmism has become a $1.5-trillion-a-year industry – which guarantees it is far safer and more fashionable to pretend a 97% consensus exists, than to embrace honesty and have one’s global warming or renewable energy funding go dry.

The real danger is not climate change – it is energy policies imposed in the name of climate change. It’s time to consider something else Einstein said: “The important thing is not to stop questioning.”


Where’s All the Global Warming? | The Common Constitutionalist – Let The Truth Be Known

by: the Common Constitutionalist


I don’t normally like to bash others just because they have a different point of view. However, regarding this topic, I take pleasure in verbally beating up on those members of the Church of Perpetual Heat; the man-made Global Warming nuts.


We in realville, as Rush calls it, realize that a cold winter does not equal a global cooling trend, but neither does a hot summer prove global warming.


Yet that is exactly what we hear from the so-called warming experts whenever the temperature drifts above 100°F. When the temperature dips, the same fools either ignore it or call it climate change.


We don’t normally hear from the “true believers”. We hear mostly from those who have and continue to benefit financially from the warming farce and those who just want control.


One can’t really blame the ignorant true believer. They have been pummeled, year after year, with the propagandist threats of “change your lifestyle to save the planet and reduce your carbon footprint”.


Yet here we are setting negative temperature records across the United States and it’s not even winter.


The city of Portland Oregon, with its record-setting cold temperatures, opened warming shelters this past weekend. The director of a local Portland nonprofit said his main job was just to keep people alive.


At the same time we in the United States are freezing our backsides off, the UN climate chief, Christiana Figueres, is busy trying to shut down coal-fired power plants worldwide.


As we know, coal is dirty and icky and pollutes mother Earth. It causes excess greenhouse gases which leads to global warming, don’t you know. Tell that to Portland’s homeless, dying in the streets from exposure.


The head of the World Coal Association, Milton Catelin said Figueres is, “ignoring reality. She comes from a perspective where the only challenge in the world today is global warming”.


Figueres is a man-made global warming nut, who just happens to come from tropical Costa Rica, where the high temperatures year-round are in the mid-80s and the lows in the high 60s, so naturally she has experienced nothing but warming.


A few days ago Rush Limbaugh mentioned a ridiculous article written in 2000 by Charles Onians. It appeared in the UK independent and was entitled: “Snowfalls Are Now Just a Thing of the Past”.


He wrote that warming, “is now accepted as reality in the international community”. He claimed that warming manifests itself in warmer winters and hotter summers. Brilliant!


The money quote is: “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is”. I guess “the children” didn’t attend any NFL games this past weekend or end up in a multicar pileup due to excessive ice and snow.


So here we are, a mere 13 years after Mr. Onians wrote his dimwitted article, and what do we hear?


A new cold temperature record has been set in East Antarctica. Although when all there is is ice and snow, how does one tell East Antarctica from West? Just asking.


Anyway, the temperature recorded was… are you ready for this?… -135.8°F. What does the U.N. have to say about that, Ms. Figueres?


Makes one wonder just how cold it would be without all this man-made global warming?

Obama’s Immigration Is Destroying America

Obama’s Immigration Is Destroying America
From http://www.suthenboy.com/
Immigration has been ingrained into the fabric of America for hundreds of years and except during wartime was non-discriminatory and diverse. Over the years immigration laws governing admission to the United States changed with the times, conditions, and political environments. Regardless of the changes however, each president cared about America and pursuant to his oath of office was consistent in endeavoring to do what he deemed to be in her best interest.
Things Change: This significantly changed seven years ago with Obama’s tragic election and continues under his lawless reign. Unlike past presidents Obama’s words and actions consistently evince a deep disdain for America that is evident in his illegal immigration policies. Unlike past presidents Obama has stated and consistently displayed allegiance to Islam thereby subordinating America’s best interests to his ideology. Whether Obama took his oath of office on a bible as is customary or quran is unclear: however, his actions relative to America’s best interests are crystal clear.

Previously the great majority of immigrants desiring citizenship came to America legally and in good faith to enhance our country while seeking work and greater economic opportunity. Today’s immigrants primarily come to commit crimes, leech off welfare, have kids, and then bring in their extended families that also go on welfare immediately. Courtesy of Obama, as of July 21, 2015, his Muslim brethren take a sharia compliant oath that, among other things, relieves them of pledging allegiance to and defending America from enemies.
Obama’s Immigrants: The process and positive ramifications of traditional immigration have been dramatically reversed under Obama and his sycophants in Congress. It should be abundantly clear to every sane person in America that they are intentionally flooding the U.S.  with endless hordes of immigrants, or aliens, as I prefer, of Islamic and Hispanic descent whose cultures are completely different than ours. These people are neither vetted for backgrounds nor health conditions.
While most of the aliens are depraved and some speak broken English at best, all share the following characteristics:
  • Non-White
  • Indigent
  • Illiterate
  • Tribal cultures
  • Unconcerned with personal health, hygiene, and the environment
  • Do not assimilate
  • Seek welfare and citizenship
Legality: For purposes of legal expedience and circumventing immigration laws, Obama arbitrarily deems his aliens ‘refugees’ or ‘asylees’ i.e., political asylum seekers’, in order to grant them immediate welfare benefits and eventual citizenship. As is his custom, Obama continues to violate and trash the U.S. Constitution with reckless abandon while Congress willfully acquiesces. As an aside, I firmly believe Obama’s immigration is illegal and have discussed it at length in my 10/17/15 blog at this link
The Alien Gravy Train of Plenty: Pending their grant of U.S. citizenship and its associated welfare, these indigent tribal aliens receive generous benefits that include financial, educational, and medical assistance, housing, legal representation, etc., on ad nauseam. After being granted ‘fast track’ citizenship they receive the normal endless ever-increasing American gravy train of entitlements available to all societal leeches.
How The Aliens of Obama and Congress Benefit America: In my opinion Obama and his congressional sycophants are the major beneficiaries of these aliens, and to the exclusion of decent Americans. Specifically, the great majority of them, particularly Muslims, significantly contribute to their ongoing destruction of traditional American culture and values in ways that include the following:
  • Bleed the welfare system for life
  • Cause systemic disruption through chaos and criminal activities
The destruction of European countries and their cultures as well as soaring crime rates by indigent tribal Muslim savages should be proof positive even for the most skeptic people.
Pre and Post Obama Immigration: Until Obama’s presidency the immigrants coming to America comprised people of diverse ethnicity and colors who obtained their citizenship legally after enduring an arduous bureaucratic process and swearing allegiance to the U.S. They desired a better life for themselves and families through hard work, and to make a meaningful contribution to our country. It is noteworthy that political correctness had not yet reared its ugly head so all immigrants were treated equally relative to the process of entry and citizenship in America.
Conversely, Obama and Congress have unconditionally opened America’s floodgates to what appears to be an exclusive right of passage to the world’s undesirable non-White indigent tribal filth. This unsavory group bypasses the normal immigration process and their path to citizenship is ‘fast tracked’. These individuals come to America solely to live off of welfare and immediately receive her generous benefits simply by entering as an Obama designated ‘refugee’ or ‘asylee’ entitled to preferential treatment.
The Benefit of Political Correctness: Obama and Congress conveniently exalt these aliens under the convenient umbrella of political correctness because they fall into the minority group. Specifically, political correctness adheres to the mantra, and I paraphrase, ‘the best interests of minorities trump all else’. As such they are considered ‘poor victims of oppressive societies or circumstances that America must take in, feed, educate, and otherwise support for will likely be their life.

This absurd nonsense stems from Obama and Congress fallaciously justifying the illegal importation of these tribal savages on the disingenuous high moral ground “this is who we are”. In reality, however, these aliens serve as disposable useful idiots assisting them to achieve their goals that are clearly not underpinned by or associated with benevolence.
Teddy Roosevelt and Immigration: Roosevelt was president from 1901 to 1909 during the largest wave of immigration to the U.S. He loved America and was determined that immigrants becoming citizens have undivided absolute allegiance to her in every way. During and after his presidency Roosevelt frequently spoke and wrote spoke on that subject which was dear to him.
The theme of Roosevelt’s writing and speeches on immigration was known as ‘Americanization’ and set forth dictates that he expected immigrants to adapt and use. Included therein were American culture, speech, political ideas, principles, and the distinction between church and state.Consistent with ‘Americanization’ on January 3, 1919, Roosevelt wrote the following letter to the president of the American Defense Society.
‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’
This is in stark contrast to Obama and Congress demanding that Americans change their lives by accommodating and adapting to the tribal cultures of the depraved indigent Muslim scum they are shoving down our throats. This is particularly appalling considering that Obama’s Muslim brethren commit 99.9% of the world’s terror and have not been shy about slaughtering Americans in the U.S., typically referred to as ‘workplace violence’ by Obama.
My Take: In my opinion the immigration policy of Obama and Congress is specifically intended and operates to exclusively admit hordes of non-White indigent tribal filth of absolutely no value to America; particularly Obama’s Muslim brethren. Google their exploits, mass rapes, other crimes, and destruction throughout Europe to assuage any doubts about the character of these feral savages who will not change in America. This reckless illegal policy of Obama and Congress clearly portends their following goals:
  • Accelerate the destruction of traditional American culture and values
  • Significantly reduce and eliminate the White race.
Unless I have missed something there is not one redeeming benefit inuring to America by importing these tribal Muslim savages and other indigent aliens. The only logical conclusion I can draw is that it serves the self interests of Obama and Congress.

I have previously posted this short video showing typical savage Muslim ingrates expressing their appreciation to Europeans. They are the same ilk of tribal filth Obama and Congress are importing en-masse to America.  I encourage you to view and ponder its ramification by clicking this link: Open Gates


What Global Warming is really about – Judson Phillips

Posted by Judson Phillips

Today the left wing media is celebrating. The left has achieved one of its signature goals, namely an international treaty on “man-made” global warming.  Everyone is required to ignore the fact that global warming is a myth, totally unsupported by scientific evidence, but remember the left lives in a fact free world.  To the left, things are never as they are, only has they should be.

But there is much more to this story.  Would you like to know what the global warming scam is really all about?

First, if you had any doubts about the impartiality of journalists, you should see the video of journalists celebrating when the news of the “agreement” is announced.  Does anyone think they would celebrate like that if Ted Cruz were elected President or if America announced we had wiped out ISIS?

Buried in the agreement is a little provision that requires the developed nations, and that means primarily the United States, to pay developing nations $100 billion annually as damages for global warming.

This is only the start.

The goal of the left is to bankrupt the West and cripple the western economies.  A modern economy only works if there are sources of cheap, constant power.  Without power, the modern economy collapses.

Part of the agreement is to reduce so called “greenhouse gases.” Allegedly the version of the agreement signed does not call for sanctions for nations that do not reduce their emissions. But that is coming.

This is all a scam to transfer wealth from western nations that have free markets to corrupt third world nations. These nations are in poverty, not because of “Western imperialism.” They are poor because they have corrupt leaders who will not allow a free market.

Since the late 1940’s America has wasted billions, if not trillions on foreign aid to these third world nations. Foreign aid has not helped the nations but it has helped the bank accounts of the corrupt dictators that run these countries.  Does anyone really believe these “payments” are going to help the people of those nations?

This new treaty, and that is exactly what it is, will squander billions of dollars. If European leaders want to do that, it is their money. But Americans should not give a dime to this idiocy.

We can only hope that on January 20, 2017, one of the first acts of President Ted Cruz is repudiate the Paris accord.

Freedom Party America – Tea Party Nation

Posted by Jeff Dover

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan is planning to pass new legislation to bring hundreds of thousands of immigrant workers to the United States.  We just got rid of John Boehner.  We made enough noise that the GOP ousted him.  The GOP then made a show of considering a conservative replacement for Boehner.  It was only a show, folks.  Aren’t we used to that by now?  Well, we need not to have worried, because the so-called “Freedom Caucus” endorsed Ryan’s bid for the seat of Speaker.  Of course, his win was by secret ballot.  That way, constituents in conservative districts would be unable to see how their “conservative” GOP representative voted.  Yet, we knew that Ryan was a progressive ally.  Are we to believe that those who work with him and know him personally didn’t know how he would behave as Speaker?  ( Hint: They knew.)

For backup, we’ve got Mitch McConnell running things for us in the senate.  How do you like good ‘ol “I don’t want to talk about immigration” Mitch?  Great guy, eh?  Too bad he’s a progressive ally too.  I’m sure he’ll go along with Ryan’s omnibus bill.  It’s for sure the Democrats will go for it because, after all, as we’ve seen time and again, it’s in support of Obama’s agenda .  The ruling class will be happy.

The GOP are every bit as responsible for the terrorist acts here as the Democrats are.  Ryan won’t block the Syrian immigrants any more than he will help to secure our borders.   But it’s not just Paul Ryan.  Neither his predecessor nor the Bush Administration did anything either in spite of our urging.  Now Rush Limbaugh reports that 72 employees of the Department of Homeland Security are on the “terrorist watch list”.  Why must we hear that from Limbaugh?  Why isn’t our Republican congress telling us that … and then doing something about it?

C’mon, Tea Party!  Do you really believe at this point that the Republican Party is a place for us?  If so, why?   Where is the slightest evidence in legislative or executive action that they represent us in any meaningful way? The Drudge Report/Miami Herald reported yesterday that one of Jeb Bush’s main donors says he’ll vote for Hillary if Trump wins the nomination.  Is that any surprise?  That’s who these people are, the people who control the Republican Party.  They are Hillary by a different name.  Jeb Bush? Marco Rubio?  John Kasich?  Hillary?  Except for the pictures and a gap in class, they are the same thing on the main issues.

Yet, look at the support for Trump…he’s blowing all the others out of the water!  Do those Trump supporters care what the GOP thinks?  Apparently not.  So why belong to the GOP?  Just because it’s there?  Where’s that getting us?  Hopefully Trump will win the White House, but do you think that the GOP controlled congress will work with him on any major changes?  Forget it!  Ditto Cruz, should he be victorious. Then you’ll see some real opposition – the kind of opposition that’s been totally missing for the past nearly seven years.  And when Trump’s gone, without a new party, aren’t we right back to here, stuck with a bunch of self-absorbed losers shining us on while behind the scenes, out of view, various billionaires, corporations and lobbies,  foreign and domestic, decide in our stead how we, the people, will be governed?

We all know, at some level, that we have a ruling political class which does not give a damn about us.  I don’t just mean those of us at TPN who read and write here, but I mean about any American who is not a member of their club.  They do not represent us and they are fighting to remain unrepresentative of us, evidenced by their repeated attempts to dislodge Trump’s candidacy.  But that’s only a continuation of business as usual, remembering all the other conservative candidacies the Establishment has sunk in recent years.  

If we want to save our country we have to get free of the GOP.  And while we’ve got Donald Trump stirring things up, now is the time to do it.   The Establishment trolls and those with no ideas will tell us we can’t replace the GOP, that we can’t be successful.  Bull.  Pure unadulterated, fear-mongering bull.  They’ll rave on about “Articles X, Y and Z” or send us off to internet link “No Can Do”.  They’ll try to diminish me personally for bringing this up and will do anything except argue factually for continuing support of the GOP.  That’s because they can’t: there is no evidence to suggest that the GOP can turn the USA around or even wants to. 

The reality is that we can do and accomplish whatever we put our minds and our energies into accomplishing – and at some level we all know that, too.  Let’s do it!  Here’s our idea for moving forward with a party which will not permit what we have seen come to pass in Washington.  Help us out.  Get involved.  Help us organize in your state so we can begin to get people on the ballots around the nation who will represent you and me, who will work for common sense government.  Help us get people on the ballot who won’t lie to us.  Help us clean out that mess in congress and the White House and when we’ve got that underway and rolling, we’ll start on the bureaucracies.  Let’s start to turn the tide and win the things we want.  We won’t do it with the GOP.  Let’s get this thing organized and not look back!
