Climate Change Quote Quiz!!!!!

The question …..

Who said this? …….”As to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward saying we’re not spending money on that anymore. We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that. So that is a specific tie to his campaign.

Give up?  Okay, I’ll let you know …… Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney.

Did something just go boom?

Update!!!!

You can watch the whole OMB press conference here!!!  The Climate Change Q&A is at the end of the video.  The entire video is well worth the watch!!!  Indeed, it is fantastic!!!!!  I’m not familiar with this guy(I don’t know if his name is Mulcaney or Mulvaney), but, he’s bomb!

  1. Common sense answers to the same old ‘how hateful are you not believe we have the right to demand your money be given to others, here and abroad’ questions.

    It’s CC’ed for me!…..I’m watching it all after dinner….well reading it all anyway!

    Let me fix that headline for you…..WaPo

    “Illegal Immigrants Canceling Their Food Stamps over Fears of Being Deported”

    Oh No! we can’t say that….they acutally posted this one

    “Immigrants Canceling Their Food Stamps over Fears of Being Deported”

    Can’t say that either…..changed the headline after it was posted to this

    “Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won’t deport them”

    You can’t get deported if you are a legal immigrant……can you believe this crap

    Hilarious….30 countries refuse to take back illegal immigrants
    Their own countries are scared of them!

    …it’s an act of love

    James, you global temps on a thermometer graph is featured on Kate’s blog SDA right now….

      Well, technically, that’s not mine. It’s someone’s who asked me how I did it. But, pretty cool for it to still be making the rounds!

      • Latitude says:

        But it’s still yours! he just added a few years to the end…and gave you credit
        Super Sweet!!!

      • suyts says:

        Yeh, but, his is still dated. I think I’ll update mine, today. 🙂 And, yeh, it is sweet! The first time I did it was over 4 years ago, and it’s still making the rounds! I had no idea that would go over like it did.

      . . . global temps on a thermometer graph . . . .
      <<

      As an engineer, these temperature measurements annoy me. We were taught to use the maximum “precision” available with a measuring device. (Notice I didn’t say anything about accuracy.) For most of the data collection past in meteorology, they have recorded temperatures to the nearest degree. Most thermometers have scale markings to the nearest degree. The standard procedure is to estimate one significant digit beyond the smallest scale marking. That means these recorded temperatures should include the tenth of a degree digit. The least significant digit usually comes with some doubt–it’s understood it comes with some doubt.

      So all these years, they have lost a significant digit in their recorded temperatures. It tells me they didn’t really care about temperature. However, pressure has been recorded to the nearest hundredth of an inch of mercury. Why? It’s because of aviation. Pilots need a reasonably accurate altimeter setting, and that’s why they go out to four significant digits with pressure.

      This trying to capture two more significant digits from temperature is bogus. They aren’t supposed to claim higher precision than the original measurement. Still, the graph created by James shows the nonsense of trying to claim precision out to a hundredth of a degree. It’s much ado about nothing.

    Off topic – https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/trapped-turn-your-liberal-arts-degree-career-andrew-cerrone?trk=msn-ip As a career professional who has worked in a STEM field for the past 35yrs
    and a father of a son in a tech degree program………… This is the funniest article I have ever read about a liberal arts degree…. the comments made it even worse…. Go to school to get a degree to teach you critical thinkings skills so you can realize that your degree requires you to get extra training to do an actual job..roflmao

      It looks like he’s selling his MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSES:
      https://www.mooc-list.com/
      The web design is the same on his linkedin page and on that site.
      Notice:
      ” Climate Change (Open2Study)
      Mar 20th 2017
      Macquarie Graduate School of Management
      Open2Study
      English

      Find out how climate change will affect us, why we should care about it, and what solutions we can employ. Climate change is the biggest global challenge the human race has ever faced. Our insatiable demand for energy from fossil fuels is changing the atmosphere, and in turn changing our climate. Climate change is already affecting the physical surface of the earth, the environment that provides our life support, our food supply, economy and society. These changes will accelerate over the next few decades
      In this subject you will explore the impacts of climate change; why we should care about them, the science that underpins our understanding and how we can fix the problem before it’s too late.”

      So his strategy is: Sell bullshit to people who have already proven that they are idiots. CUNNING!

        Also I think he made up the term MOOC himself. I heard Open University, Open Online Courses but never MOOC which doesn’t make sense: It’s made to sound like MMORPG; Massive Multiplayer online role playing games; meaning a whole lot of players – but the “massive” in MOOC says “massively online”; ahem – WHAAAAAAT? He missed the “Multiplayer”. Maybe his liberal arts degree wasn’t an English major.

    Climate Change Quote? Well here is one for the books! LMAO!

    • dirkhblog says:

      Well at least it ain’t gonna kill us. That’s a step towards LESS hysteria.

    • Me says:

      Well, since I posted the vid above that was online many hours ago before I put that here, then there is this new one?????? Suddenly saying the same????, And ya know it is all good but the face hew says he supports the Bernmister and that recount sweetheart Jill, that soaked up more moneys after the election, So doubble Bern! Err extra long weekend @ jellybernies! LMAO! But here is the kicker, it was only 12 mins old when I first saw it. Prolly 35 to 45mins old now, and hours by the time you catch what I am saying and take note for your ownselves when you figure out the game! 😉

  9. Me says:

    Well? What’s the chance there is a Union involved here? Ya know more so than what they claim is SCIENCE?

  10. Me says:

    And I’m agnostic!?!? Maybe I don’t trust or maybe I do??? Maybe I see things? And Maybe I don’t? But what I see I tell and it is nothing more that the rest of you can see for yourselves! Nothing more nothing less! 🙂 Unless???
