Cold Can’t Shake ABC Reporter’s Faith in Global Warming

 As global warming alarmists get more desperate, they’re turning to allies in the mainstream media to help promote increasingly strident protests that the world really is warming.

Nobody is happier to oblige than ABC News. On Jan. 8, “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer and weatherman Sam Champion worried that the cold weather engulfing much of the world just may be the result of climate change.



Then there’s ABC’s Bill Blakemore. The title of his Jan. 8 ABC article – which could only be a mislabeled op-ed – pretty much summed up his take: “No, the Cold Doesn’t Mean No Global Warming.”


“This is, of course, an old story,” wrote Blakemore, “ … and more and more 5th graders are bringing it home from their science classes to get their parents up to date on the latest climate science.”


Those properly indoctrinated young folk know three things that stupid, skeptical adults don’t: “Weather is not climate;” “Manmade global warming means less frequent cold snaps (not none at all) and more frequent heat waves;” and there are “record high temperatures this week in Washington State, Alaska and Bulgaria in the Northern Hemisphere,” and in  New Zealand and Australia.


Blakemore went on to cite six sources (two of them journalists) that all agreed that just because it is cold doesn’t mean the planet isn’t warming. Weather, they said, is “chaotic.”


Kevin Trenberth, a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, told Blakemore, “Weather dominates on a day-to-day basis, and there will be warmer periods and cooler periods. But it’s the overall pattern that gives you the climate.”

Blakemore elaborated, for the benefit of those us not fortunate enough to be enrolled in a grade school science class, on the time frame that constitutes “the overall pattern.”


“Climate is long-term and regional (or bigger),” he wrote, referring to a climate chart covering the last 130 years. Year to year climate fluctuates, but the decadal average is it the important thing.


But if “long-term and regional” are what determines climate, shouldn’t Blakemore’s experts be looking further back than 130 years? After all, the Little Ice Age took place between 1300 and 1850, following the Medieval Warm Period of roughly 800-1300.


To take Blakemore’s own argument, if the weather of a week doesn’t constitute climate for a year, and weather for a year doesn’t constitute climate for a decade, can we really extrapolate anything from 130 years out of all the years the planet has existed?


But that’s the kind of question that gets you silenced at a UN press conference. Blakemore’s story was accompanied by video of an equally one-sided interview of Stanford’s Steve Schneider, one of the high-priests of global warming.


Schneider recently made news at the Dec. 2009 climate change conference in Copenhagen when he refused to answer Irish journalist Phelim McAleer’s questions about the “ClimateGate” scandal and his staff had armed UN security personnel strong-arm McAleer into silence.


“Individual hot years don’t prove global warming,” Schneider told Blakemore. “Individual cold years don’t disprove it. We look for accumulated preponderance of evidence. It’s there. It’s very clear.”


Hopefully it’s a bit clearer than it was in 1978, when Schneider appeared on TV to warn Americans of an impending ice age that, according to the program, “could come sooner than anyone had expected.”


And just in case people aren’t listening to their 5th graders, Blakemore’s video included a helpful analogy accompanied by footage of someone using crayons to draw a listing ship.


The idea that these latest up-and-down zig-zags mean human-induced global warming has stopped is described by many scientists in a way that make it sound like a mistake that might be made by someone on the back deck of the tipping Titanic noticing that the tipping has stopped for a moment, saying ‘Oh good, I guess maybe it’s no longer sinking.” But the officers of the ship, who had been down into the front hold of the Titanic, knew that it was still filling with water (just as the atmosphere is still filling up with green house gases), and knew very well that a pause in the tipping was just a momentary effect, with worse to come.


Got that? The science is settled. At least that’s what Blakemore and a number of other journalists want you to think.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
