Verse 63 of the Obama impeachment song: Obama threatens gun confiscation though executive order.

Verse 63 of the Obama impeachment song: Obama threatens gun confiscation though executive order.

(As if sung by Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”).

Legal guns I’ll take away

so terrorists can have their sway

I will jump into the fray

You Christians, all you can do is pray.

The complete Obama Impeachment song:

The joy of planting trees. A Limerick.

Plant trees at age seventy-four

is more than the everyday chore.

With heart pounding, face red,

“Check your pulse!” my wife said.

Life’s wonderful, why ask for more?

Fair weather Climate alarmists? Protest moves from Boston Commons to Ritz-Carlton. A Limerick

It rained and was cold up in Boston.
For heat, fossil fuel warms Ritz Carlton.
With the protest on the fritz
they went inside to the Ritz
What Climate Change means they are lost on.

In the Boston area, Know Tomorrow’s “Day of Action” with 17 local colleges has been moved from the Boston Common to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel because of the rain and winds, according to Politico. Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey is set to speak to students and “implore students to build momentum for Paris and follow in the footsteps of past movements, including women’s suffrage, voting rights, and the movement to end apartheid,” Politico reports.

A prayer for the Pope on his visit to the U.S.

Dear God. We come to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with praise and thanksgiving.

We thank you for a bountiful harvest, that thanks to the increase in CO2 levels since the industrial revolution provides food for an additional 2 billion people without starving. (1)

We thank you that the earth is getting greener, so that a wider variety of plants and animals can find habitat. (2)

We praise you for the clouds You put in the sky on the second day of creation that act as the thermostat of the earth so there is a cap on how warm it will get, especially in the tropics that has found its stable temperature. (3)

We thank you for the warming in the temperate regions since the little Ice Age, making wheat farming possible way up in Canada. (4)

We thank you that this warming causes less hurricanes,(5) less tornadoes,(6) less winter storms,(7) gives more rain(8) and less droughts.(9)

And we thank you for the increase in CO2 that is delaying the onset of the coming Ice Age.(10)

And we thank you there is a inexhaustible supply of Thorium, suitable for sustainable and distributed nuclear power so that the energy needs of the future is not dependent on fossil fuel.(11)

And now, we ask you, God to protect the Pope’s soul from the evil forces waiting him in Washington and the United Nations.

They will talk a lot about Carbon Pollution, with which they mean CO2. CO2 is not a pollutant, but real pollution is a great threat to our well being and deeds to be combated at all levels. This takes large amount of energy to clean up the environment, and is made more difficult by making energy more expensive, so please, God, make the Pope see through all their lies.

And please Lord, make the Pope realize their predictions of doom come from failed climate models (12)

He has a meeting with godless and anti-Christian people who advocate Global Governance and the merging of all religions under this secular government.(13)

Jesus never said: Do as the Romans do, but this Pope is in danger of allying himself with these forces and agenda 2030, The New World Order.(14)

Lord, may all Christians heed Your calling in 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

And Lord, may there be a revival among all who trust in the finished work on the Cross, and follow the Lord, Jesus Christ, and may there be an awakening that the battle is spiritual, and Global Governance leads to even more tyranny,

And God, we thank you as in Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

And we pray this in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


And now for the explanations: (in progress)

(1) CO2 concentration has increased from about 280 ppm in pre-industrial times to 400 ppm today, and is increasing at a rate of 2 ppm per year. We are way past the point of no return, 350 ppm which would lead to a temperature catastrophe. (15) But instead, something rather interesting is occurring. The earth is getting greener! (2) This 40 % increase in CO2 the last 250 years has led to a more than 30 % increase in agricultural production all by itself without adding fertilizer or using higher yielding seeds. (16) Thanks to this we can now feed an additional two billion people on earth without starvation. The news are so good, that the per capita food production is increasing, even as the population is increasing. (17)

Look at it this way. The value of basic agricultural products is more than 1.5 trillion dollars worldwide. 30% of that is due to increased CO2. That means that the CO2 emitted is worth 450 billion dollars, spread out over all farmers and ranchers worldwide. This wealth transfer is occurring right now, and knows no national boundary. It is a gift from the developed countries to the rest of the world. Who could be against that?

It turns out that this wealth transfer occurs without global governance. The leaders of the world will not have their say in who gets the wealth transfer, the U.N. bureaucrats will not get their cut, and politicians cannot get a campaign issue since it  occurs without their involvement.

(2) The earth is getting greener!


As we can see, since satellite measurements began, most of the earth has gotten greener, especially in the semi-dry savanna areas. A few, small areas in near desert areas are getting more parched, especially in the Socialist Government induced environmental disaster around Lake Aral, and in the Arctic, where some areas are getting colder.



What we see here is  cloudiness versus latitude for a number of climate models compared to reality. It shows a total failure to model clouds properly. Modeling of clouds is exceedingly difficult. A better approach is to see what happens when clouds form, and when they do it. We all know that clouds warm by night and cool by day, but they also warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Observing the clouds, when they occur and what types of clouds form plays a major role in the climate balance, far more then increasing CO2.

(4) The saying now is: We had the warmest August ever, and 2015 is on track to be the warmest year ever. In fact, we are not even back to the medieval warming period, when there was at least one farm on Greenland (Gården under sanden) that produced and exported cheese, and there was a forest in what is now the Mendenhall Glacier, north of Juneau, Alaska, now melting and exposing 1000 year old tree stumps well preserved, some even with its bark. Another way of putting it: 2015 is still on track to be among the 1000 coldest in the last 10000 years. See chart at (10)

(5) On September 24  (Hurricane Wilma) it was 10 years since the last major hurricane hit the U.S mainland, by far the longest stretch of time since colonization began.

hurricane_frequency-march2015As we can see, there is a downward trend in hurricanes (+ taifuns, + cyclones) worldwide



In this picture number of strong tornados (EF>=3) are plotted versus CO2 level, not time, but the trend is clear; the higher the CO2 concentration, the lower the number of tornadoes.

(7) Ship logs from the little ice age shows winter storms were more severe. On the other hand the Vikings went to America in open longboats during the medieval warm period.

Winter storm Sandy was said to be unprecedented. However there has been 2 stronger storm surges in Rhode Island, both during the little Ice age:

Storm Surges RI

(8) While I still am looking for the chart signifying more rain, here is a chart that show an increase in maximum snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere. It must have gotten colder, at least as to freezing temperatures. Notice, when it snows, the temperature is often close to freezing, then it gets really cold. So in a winter with much snow the average temperature can be higher than in a winter with little snow.


(9)  Worldwide droughts has lessened slightly in the last 30 years, despite the latest California drought.



GISP2 Ice CoreFrom the Minoan to the Roman to the Medieval Warming  period we are now well into the bog generating phase of an interglacial period. Added CO2 will slow down our decent into the next Ice Age.

(11) Some reasons why a rapid development of Thorium based nuclear power makes sense.

(12) Here is a chart of 73 climate models with a calculated average temperature rise with time. It is to be noted that it is only for the tropical regions (20 Degrees N to 20 Degrees S) and the satellite and balloon data show  a very small increase since 1979 0f 0.1C and none at all since 1997. In contrast the models predicted it should be at least 1C warmer by now, or ten times the observed increase.CMIP5-73-models-vs-obs-20N-20S-MT-5-yr-means1





On 9/11 no hurricanes anywhere on earth, but there are still “Acts of God”.

The climate catastrophe prophets have predicted stronger and more frequent hurricanes. The first week of September is the peak of the hurricane season, and guess what?

No hurricanes in the Atlantic, not even tropical depressions.

In the Eastern Pacific:  Tropical cyclone activity is not expected during the next 48 hours.

In Honolulu, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center says: No tropical cyclones are expected through Sunday evening.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reports:
There are no active tropical warnings in the Northwest Pacific/North Indian Ocean, Central/Eastern Pacific, or Southern Hemisphere at this time.

So, there are no hurricanes , cyclones or typhoons anywhere on earth on the day of 9/11, the day of maximum hurricane activity for 2015.

That doesn’t mean there are no “Acts of God” as defined by our insurance policies anywhere on earth.grand-mosque-lightning

In a near desert land far away from all hurricane threats a strange rainstorm emerged on 9/11.

This occurred in Mecca, in the Grand Mosque no less, a freak thunderstorm toppled a giant crane and killed 107 ‘pilgrims’ and injured 238.

The crane was owned by a German company, but the contract to expand the Grand Mosque to accommodate was run by the Bin Laden Family.

On President Obama’s visit to Alaska. Check the tree-stumps in the retreating glaciers. A Limerick.

5087-alaska-glacier-thawsPresident Obama is on a mission to Alaska to promote draconian measures to combat Climate Change. What he doesn’t know is that Alaskans see evidence of the Ice Age everywhere, and that warm and cold periods has been with Alaska since time began. He can begin studying the tree-stumps that pop up out of melting glaciers and ask himself – why?

Well, he won’t. A quote from Obama’s speech in Alaska: “If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century ”

On the other hand, if we do implement his draconian measures, we might lessen the temperature rise by about 0.05 degrees. *

Old tree-stumps in glaciers that shrink.

It once was much warmer – you think.

We can learn from the past

warm and cold will not last.

You cannot get this?  – Seek a shrink.TreestumpsMendenhall

Background:An ancient forest which is thought to have been hidden for at least 1,000 years has been discovered beneath a melting glacier. The trees are between 1000 and 2800 years old.

Logs and stumps can be seen underneath the thawing 37 square mile Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska, with some of the trees still bearing roots and bark.

Remnants of the forest have been protruding from the river of ice, which flows into a lake near the city of Juneau for around five decades.

Mount McKinley no more. Denali it is. A Limerick.

What once was the mountain McKinleyDenali

is back to its real name Denali.

While Alaska is clean

Middle East is so mean.

They wish they could rename Benghazi.

BenghaziPresident Obama issued an executive order recognizing the name of North Americas Mountain to be Denali.

Alaska has been fighting for this name change for almost fifty years, but the Ohio delegation of Congress has been fighting to keep the name.

For once house speaker Boehner got upset at President Obama’s action.

Congress acts slowly. Not too many years ago President George Washington was promoted to a 5 star General to take effect on July 4, 1976. The act was approved October 11, 1976.

Congress has its priorities, the President has his. Climate Change is the “biggest threat to our national security”.

NOTE: “Denali” was the name assigned to Gov. Sarah Palin by the United States Secret Service during the 2008 campaign. Her husband’s code name, per Secret Service, was “Driller.” 

Cut Methane 40-45%? Climate hysteria gone crazy. A Limerick

cowbackpacksA Message that EPA sent.

Cut Methane by 40%.

No more rice, no more beef,

no more milk, no more cheese.

And yet, it will not make a dent.

What is the EPA belching out now?

Let us go over the main contributors to Methane gas generation. methane_sources

The biggest contributor to Methane generation worldwide is Rice paddies, with about 20%. Of this U.S.A. has 1.2% of the worldwide rice production, so if we eliminate domestic rice production we will reduce the our Methane budget by a quarter of one percent, assuming people switch to potatoes and pasta.

Next, also about 20% of the Methane generation are wetlands. These swamps are most cherished by environmentalists, since they are spawning grounds for all kinds of life. No one seriously wants to drain all swamps anymore, so no cuts there.

Third, with about 12% are Ruminants, Methane belching from cows and people eating beans. We could make a dent in this methane production if people totally switched their diet. Maybe a fart-tax would price beef and dairy products out of the market? Don’t forget bean-tax!

Fourth is termites with about 8%. No, Orkin would not be able to handle this. Besides, Orkin uses strong poisons.

Fifth, also about 8% is Biomass burning. Our country is already doing much better than the rest of the world. Much of this burning is sticks and straws and cow-chips for the third world dinner fire.

Sixth is landfills , also about 8%. The largest landfills are already being fitted with methane recovery pipes, which is good. We may recover yet another couple of percent of the Methane budget.

Seventh is coal mining, contributes about 8% world-wide. Obama has promised to obliterate coal mining in the U.S. Unfortunately for him China is consuming over half of the world’s coal, so even if we did away with all coal mining, that would reduce the world-wide Methane budget by less than 2%.

Eighth is gas production, about 8%. The U.S. petroleum industry already burns off the methane, converting it to CO2,  or recovers it as fuel. Not so worldwide. There can be improvements there, but not more than 2% of the worldwide budget.

Next is Methane wells in the ocean bottom and algae blooms in waters over fertilized by nitrates. This is probably under-estimated at 5%. U.S. has done great strides in for example the Chesapeake Bay, but more can be done. We could possibly gain 1% in the Methane budget from ocean cleanup.

The result? No way can we reduce Methane output by 40 – 45% unless we totally change our standard of living, our eating habits and our life-style.

How much reduction in global temperature would it give us? Less than 0.1C!

It turns out that there exists methane-eating bacteria, and they grow better with increased temperature, stripping the coal atom from methane, converting the rest to methyl alcohol and digesting that too. The Arctic, rich in methane eating bacteria may well be a methane sink, not a methane source.

Any takers?

Background: NY Times, Business day:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is expected to propose as soon as Tuesday the first-ever federal regulation to cut emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, by the nation’s oil and natural-gas industry, officials familiar with the plan said on Monday.

The proposed rule would call for the reduction of methane emissions by 40 to 45 percent over the next decade from 2012 levels, the officials said. The proposal was widely expected, after the Environmental Protection Agency said in January that it was working on such a plan.

The new rules are part of Mr. Obama’s broad push for regulations meant to cut emissions of planet-warming gases from different sectors of the economy. This month, Mr. Obama unveiled the centerpiece of that plan, a regulation meant to cut emissions of carbon dioxide by 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, a move that could transform the way the nation produces and consumes electric power.

The new rules on methane could create a tougher regulatory scheme on the nation’s fossil fuel production, particularly on the way that companies extract, move and store natural gas.

Environmental advocates have long urged the Obama administration to crack down on methane emissions. Most of the greenhouse gas pollution in the United States comes from carbon dioxide, which is produced by burning coal, oil and natural gas. Methane, which leaks from oil and gas wells, accounts for just 9 percent of the nation’s greenhouse gas pollution — but it is over 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide, so even small amounts of it can have a big impact on global warming.

The oil and gas industry has resisted methane regulations, insisting that new rules could stymie a booming natural gas industry and that voluntary industrywide standards are sufficient to prevent methane leaks. Mr. Obama is pressing efforts to cut harmful emissions as he works toward forging a United Nations global warming accord in Paris in December. The aim of the accord is to commit every nation to enact policies to cut greenhouse gases. The United States has already submitted a plan to the United Nations laying out how it will cut domestic greenhouse gas emissions by up to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.

Verse 53 of the Obama Impeachment song. Let Muslims through the border, but detain Christians fleeing ISIS!

More than two dozen Iraqi Chaldean Christians forced from their homes by ISIS have been detained at an ICE detention center in California for six months after crossing the border from Mexico.

Which leads to verse 53 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

I treat Muslims very well,

but Christians can go back to Hell.

Though they have a tale to tell.

I must all their hope of freedom quell.

Here is the complete impeachment song:

Background:The San Diego Union reported July 31 that 20 of the 27 Chaldeans at the Otay Detention Center in Otay Mesa, California, have American family members living in Southern California who are willing to sponsor them.

Family members have been holding weekly vigils and rallies to draw attention to the detentions. Large U.S. Chaldean Catholic communities reside in San Diego and Detroit.

The family members say they’ve been given few details on why they’ve been detained for so long, despite being refugees from Middle East terror.

“These aren’t people who just decided to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. These are people saying, ‘we have nowhere else to go,’” Mark Arabo, a spokesman for the Chaldean community, told the San Diego Union.

“It seems like the border is open to everyone unless you’re an Iraq Christian fleeing ISIS,” Arabo told Bill O’Reilly of Fox News Monday. “Obama is to blame, Congress is to blame, and the U.S. State Department is to blame.”

The Chaldean Christians are being held “without any logic or explanation; they’ve escaped ISIS only to be imprisoned by ICE. These are 20 innocent Christians who escaped a holocaust only to be imprisoned by ICE,” Arabo said. “These are people we should be celebrating not imprisoning.”

CO2 reductions to solve Climate change? Wrong solution for the world. A Limerick.

Renewable energy: – Clean.

The world is so dirty and mean.

Never mind the expense

and it doesn’t make sense.

CO2 is what makes the world green.

The White House Aug 3 announced a target of 32% reduction in CO2 emission from U.S. power plants by 2030. This is a target that no existing Coal fired power plant can meet, only natural gas fired power plants. He also proposed a 70% reduction in emissions other than CO2, which has its merits.

Obama may yet succeed in his campaign promise: “Under my plan the electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket.”

Obama wants us to have as expensive electricity as Denmark and Germany, the two countries with the most wind and solar power per capita. scatterplot-electricity-cost-vs-installed-renewable-capacity-aus

The chart tells it all. Thirty Cent/ kWh in Denmark.

Us is (was?) an outlier with cheap and abundant fossil fuel and low fuel taxes.

Australia is an outlier, They are paying for implementing a carbon tax.

The President said in his announcement that last year was the warmest on record and that fourteen of the fifteen warmest years occurred in this century.

Another way of looking at the temperature record is: Last year was still one of the 700 coldest in the last 10000 years. See fig:  GISP2 Ice CoreWe have now had over ten years since the last major hurricane hit the U.S. mainland. A new record.

The rise of the oceans is partly because we are still recovering from the last Ice age. One point in Northern Sweden is rising as much as three feet per century. This and normal continental drift explains why many coastlines such as the Eastern Seaboard are sinking.
