Global Warming: Happer’s Neglected Facts
(Feb. 9th - Silly me. I was actually expecting my bud Anonymous 12/12 (Veizer?) to check back the way he promised. Ready to engage in some serious debate. But alas, another self-certain loud mouth runs for cover - and since I'm very busy and to be honest literally sick of our current political situation in particular the Democrats continued utter ineptness, this exercise in futility is off the burner again. The sense of abandonment and hopelessness, along with the terror of what's coming next - because it certainly will be uglier than anything America's white bread liberals can imagine, if current trends are allowed to continue - is getting too heavy.
And no one is out there trying to really engage and network, beyond boosting membership counts. If we aren't changing minds, we are losing!
To inform and empower and engage, nothing, nothing, nothing, while the Trumpsters are running circles around us with their reality fabrication machine. It's enough to drive an empathetic observant thoughtful person into the sick bed. Thus I need to pull my focus in toward what I do have a little bit of control over, my day to day, the people and commitments in my life, and to savor the little time of peace and happiness we have left.)
First, Crucial Facts Republicans and Happer Neglect:
Climate change: Where we are in seven charts

The Trump administration says the climate will warm by a disastrous amount — and there are few plans to address it
Jeremy Berke Oct 1, 2018
- A report released by the Trump Administration said the climate is going to warm by 7 degrees Farenheit by 2100.
- The report was written to justify President Trump's decision to freeze federal gas-mileage standards for cars and light trucks by 2020.
- The predicted effects of climate change, including increased flooding associated with hurricanes, wildfires, and heat waves are already becoming a reality.
A Grave Climate Warning, Buried on Black Friday
ROBINSON MEYER | NOVEMBER 23, 2018
In a massive new report, federal scientists contradict President Trump and assert that climate change is an intensifying danger to the United States. Too bad it came out on a holiday. …
Happer says: Most research that tries to project future climate has focused on developing and applying complex computer models that attempt to simulate the Earth’s climate system.
Right. Computer models are powerful. Think about it, they can even build passenger jet planes. All sorts of complex modern marvels are totally dependent on “computer modeling,” it’s not to be dismissed.
Those models are filled with increasingly precise information, precise enough to make air to air missiles a reality. The experts really do know a thing or two that the likes of Happer simply disregard.

Worse, Republicans don’t want to learn!
