Because It Has Nothing To Do With The Lunatics’ Arguments…..

This is yet another fascinatingly stupid bit from the lunatic alarmists. 

King tides in Calif. used as climate change lesson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Environmental advocates in Northern California plan to take photographs of some of the highest tides of the year to draw attention to what climate change could do decades from now.

The so-called king tides are expected to peak during the next several days, with surges over 9 feet in some areas. The phenomenon is caused by a unique alignment of the sun, moon and earth.

The tides already produced some minor flooding in low-lying areas.

The goal of the King Tides Initiative is to preview what rising sea levels could bring in 2070.

Except no one is predicting 9 feet sea level rise by 2070.  This is hilarious.  From wiki….

….‘King tide’ is not a scientific term, nor is it used in a scientific context.

Well, maybe some astronomers would disagree. 

King tides are simply the very highest tides. Conversely, the low tides that occur at this time are the very lowest tides. They are naturally occurring, predictable events.

Tides are driven by the relative positions of the earth, moon, and sun, the elliptical orbits of the celestial bodies, land formations, and relative location on the earth.

The king tides occur when the earth, moon and sun are aligned at perigee and perihelion, resulting in the largest tidal range seen over the course of a year.

So, we’ll draw attention to imaginary problems by taking pictures of naturally occurring cyclical events.   Makes sense to me.

    I wonder if they will use the low tides, as well?

    And remember how extreme the warming can be when the sun rises. Daily. Be very afraid. You can already Google a million photos of it.

    It’s pathetic that alarmists can’t enjoy something as natural as King Tides without turning it into another bogus sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth.” There will be a lot of Photoshopping taking place to make it look really scary.

    “As you know, Members of the Science, Space, and Technology Committee have repeatedly requested release of the scientific data that EPA uses to justify alleged benefits of this rule (as well as the majority of EPA’s Clean Air Act benefit claims for non- PM2.5 rules),” the lawmakers wrote in the letter. “Multiple senior Obama Administration officials have promised to ensure release of this data, but have yet to fulfill such commitments, raising further questions regarding the seriousness of the President’s repeated statements that he is operating ‘the most open and transparent Administration in history.’”

    The data sets in question serve as the sole basis for $1.7 trillion, or 85 percent, of the $2.0 trillion in total benefits that EPA claims will result from the Clean Air Act between 1990 to 2020. These secret data are also the origin of EPA’s frequent claim that the benefits of its Clean Air Act regulations exceed the costs by a 30-to-1 ratio.

    Prior to finalizing the new rule, the Committee leaders said “it is essential that EPA and the White House make the underlying data linking PM2.5 and mortality publicly available in a manner sufficient for analysis by independent scientists and researchers. This is especially important as EPA is subjecting taxpayers that funded this research to its costly regulatory consequences, without ever allowing public review or scrutiny of the information… [a]ccordingly, we call on EPA and the White House to immediately work to make these data sets publicly-available, and ensure that future Federal regulatory decisions are based on transparent and publicly-available scientific data.”
