Unconventional Wisdom

Climate scientists from three American universities have published peer-reviewed research indicating global warming cannot be affected or modified by controlling the emission of greenhouse gases — and that current greenhouse computer models saying otherwise are wrong. The report in the International Journal of Climatology of the Royal Meteorological Society was written by professors from the universities of Rochester, Alabama and Virginia.

Lead author David Douglass of Rochester writes — “The inescapable conclusion is that the human contribution is not significant and that observed increases in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases make only a negligible contribution to climate warming.”

The report says satellite data indicates greenhouse computer models ignore the mitigating effects of clouds and water vapor on the warming properties of carbon dioxide. It says climate change is most likely caused by variations in solar winds and associated magnetic fields.

A senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress tells Cybercast News the study is “radically out of step with the complete scientific consensus”

Imagine that. One anonymous liberal disagrees.

Perception Is Reality?

The Hillary Clinton campaign is said to be struggling with perceptions that the candidate is devious, calculating and a divisive figure. reports those were the findings of a recent focus group of 11 Democrats from Philadelphia — almost all of whom said they would vote for her in a general election. The focus group was run by the noted Democratic pollster Peter Hart.

One of the group members says of Mrs. Clinton — “I don’t feel like I look at her and see someone who’s telling me the whole truth.” Another said — “She is walking a fine tightrope now, because she is such a divisive personality.”

Barack Obama, meanwhile, was perceived as inspirational, motivating, charismatic and compassionate.

Not telling the truth, but they’ll vote for her anyway. sheesh…
