The Presidential Politics of Climate Change

Guest political humor by David Middleton

All of the Gorebal Warming since Al Gore & Jimbo Hansen invented climate “science” has occurred while Democrats occupied the White House…

HadCRUT4 (°C) from 1989, grouped by US President. Wood for Trees

All of the warming since George H. W. Bush took office in January 1989 occurred while Democrats Bill Clinton and Barrack Hussein Obama occupied the White House.  No warming occurred while George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump were Chief Executives of the U.S. government… Yet Presidents Bush & Trump have more or less been blamed for every hurricane and all other inclement weather since at least 2005.

Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it.

  1. Using Obama logic, he is responsible for the economy improving at a more rapid pace now after he’s gone. Obviously, he’s also responsible for the lack of temperature increase since he left as well.

          • See how good Mr Obama speech making is when his is a ddressing a military tribunal, along with the rest of his scandal free administration.

            Keep your eyes on the EO’s [exec orders].
            They are worth checking out as the net tightens.
            And Trump conditioning the public with one word tweets TREASON ?.

            He has used sedition/ous many times now, its all theatre and ”if” The Right are really going to do it, it will all explode just before the mid-terms.

          • The Q thing is quite interesting, but i base my opinion/s on the The Don’s statements over the last 20 yrs, and him being a man of his word.

            The 2 civilian investigative branches have been completely Obarma-ed.

            Trump is the commander in chief, and putting all his trust in the patriots of military intel.

            He / they have done a great job bringing all the globalist/marxist roaches out into the day light.

            That Q thing is a dud if nothing really momentous happens just before the mid-terms.

            Trump will have both houses and 6 years to do as he said, ”i will bring them all down”.

            He has already changed the way a huge portion of world trade is undertaken, and he is busy whipping china the worlds driving force behind globalisation,….i.e. chinese-ism,…..one world governance.

            If he loses all our great grand kids will be brown and maoist.

          • I have yet to meet a Democrat who would let something as trivial as being voted out of office keep them from the limelight.

          • I can only remember 2 presidents who were not seekers of the limelight, George W Bush and Harry Truman, but I was pretty young in Truman’s era so will stand to be corrected if it comes to that. Of course, not too much limelight back then, no tv at my house at any rate.

          • Sadly, Obama was never voted out of office. Even more depressing is that if allowed, he probably would have won again.
            The last time that happened the country slipped into socialism rather quickly. Thankfully our predecessors realized the folly of allowing an entrenched political machine to imbed itself too firmly to be removed.

          • Mark W wrote: “I have yet to meet a Democrat who would let something as trivial as being voted out of office keep them from the limelight.”
            I like that comment but would modify it a little to ‘I have yet to meet a Democrat who would let something as trivial as being voted out of office keep them from admitting they were.’ Remember, it is considered a serious character flaw for a professional politician to EVER admit they were wrong – about anything.

        • He definitely should get a ton of credit for Trump being President. Ironically, so should most of the Republicans who ran against him…

          • IT WAS NOT THE RUSSIANS. It was me. I voted for him in the general. (Cruz in the primary) And then, I was blessed by being chosen as an Elector in the Electoral College, so I got to vote for him again. Before the meeting of the Electoral College, I was bombarded by emails from crazed Donks. On the “best” day, I got just over 10,000. I set up spam rules so most every one went to spam. It was very satisfying to empty the spam folder. It took nearly half an hour to purge the spam folder of trash. I hope that I can be chosen Elector again. (They are elected at the Republican State Convention, at least here in Texas.) It’s fun to see Donk heads explode. They haven’t been this mad since 1865 when we made them give up their slaves.

    • “Obviously, he’s also responsible for the lack of temperature increase since he left as well.”
      Well there is going to be a whole lot of temperature increases now Mr Manafort has flipped. Now we get to find out the ruth about the President. Best news I’ve had all year.

      • Your continued pathetic hopes just make the rest of us that much more pleased when they are dashed once again. So far the only person about to take fallout from Manafort flipping is a democrat power broker and the law firm in which he is a partner.

    • “Obviously, he’s also responsible for the lack of temperature increase since he left as well.”
      Well things are certainly going to heat up around Mr Trump now Manafort has flipped. Best news I have had all year. Now we get to see how much of a witch hunt it was.

      • Well, the witch hunt is taking down a lot of ‘never trumpers’. lol

        More and bigger ones to come. Be careful what you ask for, especially on a witch hunt!

      • We already know how much of a witch hunt it was. The primary reason given for the investigation was meeting with a foreign agent, possibly to strike a deal to to influence the election. It has been a known fact for months that one party not only met with a foreign agent to influence the election, but paid that agent cash to influence the election, and yet no charges have been filed because that party isn’t the target.

        • If yo are referring to Clinton paying Steele… that is quite different. No 1 Steele was working for a private company. 2. there was nothing illegal or even unusual about the contract. 3. Trump may well have colluded with the government of the US’s biggest enemy to alter the election. Now that is something worth investigating. Can’t wait to hear what Manafort has to say.

          • It really is sad the way trolls cling to their delusions.

            Just like climate change, the mere fact that there is no real world evidence to support their delusion won’t stop them from claiming it over and over again.

          • “Just like climate change, the mere fact that there is no real world evidence to support their delusion …”
            Let’s see what Mr Manafort has to say about the meeting in Trump tower.

          • Manafort flipped on Podesta. It’s been widely reported it has nothing to do with Trump or collusion with Russia.

          • If there is nothing illegal about paying a foreigner to influence the election, then there is no reason for the Mueller investigation. Public or private doesn’t matter under the law, friend or enemy doesn’t matter under the law. Trump is being accused of taking actions that the DNC is known to have committed, if that’s not unusual or illegal, then you have proven that the original purpose is a politically motivated witch hunt.

          • Reg Nelson
            Manafort has agreed to cooperate on the following “in any and all matters as to which the government deems the cooperation relevant,” including “testifying fully, completely” before a grand jury.”
            I think they are going to be very keen to ask him questions about the little meeting in Trump tower. Cohen has already said big Trump new about the meeting beforehand. If Manafort says he did (under oath) then it is game set and match. Trump will have been caught lying(again)… there was collusion…. Witches found.

          • The Clinton campaign paid Russians, through Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, to fabricate outlandish stories to smear Trump. The FBI took these “salacious and unverified” tales and used them to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. Top FBI officials like Comey, McCabe and Strzok have been fired.

  2. Here in Australia we have the ALP, Australian Labour Party, it is the euivelent of the US Demotracts and has the same nutty items about Climate change, i.e. before it ws global warming until that stopped.

    The Liberal Party of Australia is the same as the Republician Party of the USA, perhaps not quite as right wing. I t used to have Turnbull a Green PM, but he got kicked out two weeks ago and since then noises of being anti Paris have been heard,

    But the34 polls all indicate that the ALP will win the next election, due before next may, so we will have to wait till the lights go out.

  3. Suppose that you were a clueless academic. You would notice the correlation between the President’s party and the temperature trend. You would calculate a convincing p-value to prove that it wasn’t a fluke. I have a bad feeling that some journal, especially of the predatory sort, would publish the paper.

    The above scenario sounds stupid but it is absolutely standard operating practice. My favorite example involves dark chocolate. link Interestingly, it was a blogger, not the scientific community, who first noticed that the paper was bogus.

    • Thanks for the “…dark chocolate. link …” A must read in my opinion (-:

      I read the whole thing and couldn’t help but draw the parallel to typical head lines about what “Climate Change” causes.

    • It’s easy to fool people when you tell them what they already want to believe. It is tempting to fool the “professionals”, however. I do enjoy a good scam research paper!

      • Saw an interview with a convicted fraud artist.

        His favourite victims were, in order, 1) dentists, 2) lawyers, 3) medical doctors.

        He figures the dentists were always trying to prove that they too were medical professionals. Lawyers and doctors? Always too smart for their own good.

        I would imagine he might include academics there as well.

        • Why would a fraudster target academics? They don’t have the disposable income that dentists, lawyers, and medical doctors do.

  4. This is absolute proof that electing Democrats is not healthy for children and other living things. Clinton and Obama have put our babies in harm’s way. Vote straight Republican… for the children, the Polar Bears and all the other cuddly living things.

    • If it weren’t for leftist activists, nobody would be worrying about global warming. So, you are absolutely right. Leftists caused CAGW.

  5. Obviously the temperature trend lags by one President.

    It is pretty funny how everywhere you look, Mother nature is poking warmists in their eye. No wonder they are blind to the truth.

  6. The slopes of the trendlines also correlate amazingly well to the degree of liberalism-conservationism of the different Presidents.

  7. And the whopper 1997 El Nino ocurred while Bill was getting his peace pipe smoked by Monica and lying about it.
    What was Obama up to in 2015-2016’s Biggee ElNino? Telling whoppers at every turn.
    There’s a connection I’m telling ya.

    • I heard yesterday that the infamous Lisa Page, one of the DOJ officials trying to frame Trump, was an intern in the Bill Clinton Whitehouse!

  8. If someone had suggested to me a few years ago that the beta decay rate of radioisotopes here on Earth were being modulated by what was happening in the solar interior, I would have laughed at them.

    The universe has strange connections.

    • Kwisatz Haderach was a term used primarily by the Bene Gesserit. It was an old Chakobsa term that translated literally as “Shortening of the Way”.

  9. Conclusion, warming causes voters to turn Republican, cooling Democrat. Possibly explains why Americans get the colors of the two parties the wrong way round.

    • The color choices puzzled me too. It looks like the color assignments predate communism and communism’s appropriation/association with red. Check out the USGS map for the 1856 election (the first year the Republican Party shows up on the electoral map:

      The Communist Manifesto is from 1848 but the assignment of blue to the Democratic party (and its predecessors) goes back earlier.

      • Prior to 2000, it wasn’t standard. In 1976 for example, ABC used Blue for Carter (the democrat) and Yellow for Ford (the Republican). In 1992 Bill Clinton had Red and George Bush had Blue. It pretty much was the aftermath of the 2000 election that locked in the idea of Red for Republican and Blue for Democrat

  10. It was rapist Bill’s presidency that had the biggest eruption wasn’t it.
    His Mount Monica leaking lava all over the place.

  11. 396 W/m^2 of S-B BB LWIR energy upwelling from the surface are required to power the radiative greenhouse effect. (TFK_bams09)

    But this 396 W/m^2 is naught but a theoretical “what if” S-B BB ideal 1.0 emissivity calculation for any surface at 289 K and is not real.

    If this 396 W/m^2 does not exist neither do the 333 W/m^2 GHG LWIR energy loop, CO2 warming or man-caused climate change.

    https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6443501424587395072

    So how ‘bout all you unemployed aromatherapists who think 30 minutes on Wiki makes you “scientists” prove the origin, physics and existence of that 396 W/m^2 LWIR upwelling from the earth’s surface?

    • Nice post nick,…….

      The luke warmers will pretend it doesn’t exist and there really really really is RGHE, infact they will fight you to maintain their consensus position.

      The will argue it really is real the 396, but the forcing is offset and theres very very little warming.

      The machanism a the macro events involved [cold making warm warmer still] has always been the settled science and is not up for debate, so the whole circus can carry on.

      Your doctor Roys and Monktons etc the so-called skeptics will carry on their consensus gate-keeping role as long as there’s money and exposure in doing so.

  12. I think Trump has missed a chance for a good tweet this time. Something on the lines of:

    “I recently learned from the NYT that I was responsible for Hurricane Florence. I had not previously been aware that as POTUS I could control US weather. However as soon as I learned, I immediately used my executive powers to order Florence to downgrade to Cat. 1 before entering US territory, and was pleased to see that she obeyed.

    PS. To avoid unfortunate misunderstandings by journalists and other mentally challenged persons, the above is in the nature of irony or sarcasm and does not in any way imply that I actually believe that I can control weather, or anything else that I read in NYT.”

    • “I recently learned from the failing NYT ….”

      Come on, if you are going to suggest a Trump tweet, put a little effort into including how trump refers to things.

  13. It’s all about victimhood. The left must create victims (of what is less important) in order to stay/return to power. The current crop of victims have no clue what being a victim really is. Holocaust folks are victims, children born without their full faculties are victims. People harmed by random, indiscriminate crimes are victims. But people who say they are victims of some awful thing done to some previous generation are sniveling, cowardly, inept snowflakes who apparently can’t boil water because “victim”. And the left prefers their voting rank and file to be that way.

    We all have the individual right to life, liberty, and the PURSUIT of happiness. The left wants to take and keep those rights away from their constituents. This endeavor on their part is surely the greatest scandal of our time. Anthropogenic Global Warming is simply one of MANY means to that scandalous end. So if you subscribe to the leftist victim label and the current boogeyman you are a putts with a ring in your nose being led around by your owners. Now THAT’S slavery!

    • ” … putts … ” = something you do while chasing a small, white ball around large open areas of green(ie) grass …

      ” … putz … ” = not the above

  14. What drives me nuts about all these people claiming Trump is responsible for worse hurricanes:
    1) They aren’t worse.
    2) US CO2 emissions continue to go down, regardless of their withdrawal from the Paris Climate Treaty (plus US never joined anyway as the Senate never ratified it).
    3) I don’t believe any evidence supports the claim that increased CO2 results in worse hurricanes.

    Ps I saw a Instagram post claiming hurricanes are made by the government (not natural, don’t know what the guy thinks about historical hurricanes), and the occurrence of major hurricanes have increased by 5 times, and just wait, they will make a Category 6 hurricane this year.

  15. Ot
    One or two websits say that if mercury is reason for closing of the NSO, BIF would not get involved unless it’s a sabotage?!
    Could not find any other up to date info.

    • The mercury story is a red-herring. If it was mercury you’d have seen Hazmat suits and not FBI and antenna guys.

      I suspect someone (a foreign agent mole) at the site was suspected by the FBI of using the high vantage point of the observatory to collect and record radio traffic over the Holloman AFB and White Sands ranges.

  16. Mods unable to access WUWT for hours 502 Bad Gateway and 508 Timeout Server Issues was all I got.
    Now it appears no reply is available, and my tool bar is not available without scrolling to the top of the page.
    What’s happening?

  17. Would someone please tell Donald that he’s overdone it. We’re sitting at 1 C in Calgary, 17 degrees below normal and no improvement in sight for at least a week. Maybe he’s trying to convince Trudeau to convert the Canadian Milk Marketing board into an ice cream supplier for the US in return for a NAFTA agreement.

    • Yah, Michael, but the American duck and goose hunters who travel to your fine Province are LOVING it.

      It’s giving the birds a good push out of the northern reaches of the Peace river valley 3 weeks earlier than normal, and they’ll show up between Grimshaw and Grande Prairie a few weeks ahead of schedule.

      Based on own many experiences in AB, MB and SK, and having traveled all over N. America, I can say as an authority that the prairie farmers, ranchers and bush folks in rural AB, MB and SK are the finest in N. America. And that includes us Southerners in the U.S.

      Those folks in those Provinces will be the last humans standing in any economic apocalypse. Abundant oil, gas, cereal grains, livestock, water, uranium and hydroelectric power. Humans can survive for centuries and rebuild from there.

      Unfortunately, the next ice age will wipe them out. The “climate change” the rest of the world is so worried about is no great threat to them. The end of the current interglacial is.

  18. Hmmm…
    I don’t have a link but one of Obama’s people wrote a book and quoted him as saying (after Hillary lost, I think), “Maybe we should have waited another 10 years.”
    My questions are:
    Who is the “we”?
    and
    “Waited 10 years” for what?

  19. England’s King Canute or Knut demonstrated that he couldn’t hold back the waves; his excessively ingratiating followers had implied that he could. Obama said he was going to push back the oceans. Does he by any chance think he’s Teddy Roosevelt?

  20. Anyone who accuses a person or group for a weather event is clinically unhinged. These pathetic fools are no different than witch burners.
    Notice that it is always a person the witch burner already dislikes when they cross the line into actual witch burning.

    • Bruce,

      Not when you compare Carter’s and Reagan’s or Obama’s and Trump’s economies.

      And the economy got better under Clinton only after the GOP won the House.
