‘Inconvenient’ weather causes cancellation of ‘Truth’ screening; postponement of congressional committee

posted at 8:57 am on February 14, 2007 by Ian

Drudge reports on committee meeting:

The Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in room 2123 Rayburn House Office Building has been postponed due to inclement weather. The hearing is entitled “Climate Change: Are Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Human Activities Contributing to a Warming of the Planet?”

Drudge also reports (on the right sidebar):

SAVE IT FOR A SUNNY DAY: Maryville Univ. in St. Louis area cancelling screening of Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ because of a snowstorm…

Indeed it is true. Reader Anthony tips us off to Maryville University’s schedule. Scroll down to the 7:00pm portion.

Update: Jason at Texas Rainmaker has a screen shot of congressional webpage.

HAHA! Just like a few years ago when Gore gave some big speech … outside … on the coldest day of the year! Maybe this is God … oooops, I mean “Gaia” … tellin’ him he’s wrong.

…Whats inconvenient is that none of the media will hold gore to task on this other than the conservative alternative press.
Gore is a Tool (in many senses of the word).

Wheres all the hurricanes Al?
Wheres all the drought AL?
I Live In New Mexico AL Wheres my beach front property when the world floods?

Tool
Tool
Tool

-Wasteland Man.

P.S. NM been in a drought for 7 years, in the past 10 months a 7 year drought has been turned around. Tool again.

I’m not going to complain. Global warming gave me the day off.

Slublog on February 14, 2007 at 9:33 AM

I don’t follow the whole man-made-global-warming thing much. Illegal aliens and Islamofacist terrorists concern me more. Does Gore and his experts blame extreme cold weather on man too or do they just stay away from microphones on really cold days?

ctmom on February 14, 2007 at 9:34 AM

Another cancellation on Drudge. “Hearing on ‘warming of planet’ canceled because of ice storm.” God does indeed have a sense of humor. I guess we’re all like holocaust deniers here, according to Maureen Dowd.

WastelandMan on February 14, 2007 at 9:30 AM

Yeah, and they made a huge deal out of the late start to winter and the “cherry blossoms blooming in January!” when we had that one freak weekend in early January. I remember the idea that we were never really going to get winter this year being bandied about… Now we (VT) haven’t gone above freezing for about 4 weeks, and won’t for at least another week. It’s currently 3 degrees, with a -8 windchill. “Global Warming”? Oh that’s right, EVERYTHING can be explained by global warming.. but this time of year we call it “climate change”.

Prediction: We’ll have a wicked hot week or two in July and August, maybe a record day or maybe a couple, and the shouts of “global warming” will be everywhere. Then we’ll get back to a normal hurricane season (unlike the weak, below average one we just had), and that will be global warming too.

As always I have to point out that everyone’s expert Al Gore couldn’t even get the hurricane spinning in the proper direction on the DVD/poster/anything associated with that work of ficion, yet I’m supposed to believe his crap? I wonder how it felt for him to watch a hurricane season projected to be another wild one, not see a single ‘cane make landfall, and only two week “tropical storms” dump a bunch of rain over Florida. What happened Al? Oh wait, I just broke the rule of not asking you real questions, my apologies. Now run along to Good Morning America and drop your pants for those clowns and your pathetic audience that buys your sh**.

RightWinged on February 14, 2007 at 9:39 AM

Oh sweet irony. I wish our lawmakers would pull their heads out and recognize the lunacy of what turning 100’s of millions of people into “chicken littles” will do to our country and economy.

The global warming fear mongers try to blame all extreme weather on this. Climate experts, however, tell us that a warming planet would have more stable weather.

pullingmyhairout on February 14, 2007 at 9:57 AM

Apparently you all haven’t gotten the latest memo.

In light of the recent bitter cold and mountains of snow in the east, the phrase “global warming” has largely been replaced with “climate change.”

Seriously. The joke is … that I’m not joking.

“Climate change” is the phrase you’ll be hearing from now on. And it’s brilliant – because now everything can be blamed on humans in general, and George Bush in particular.

The theory I’m hearing all of a sudden is that all those greenhouse gases are creating all sorts of “climate changes” – no longer limited to “warming.”

It’s hot? Climate change. Cold? Climate change, too! Powerful storms? Climate change – and it’s all our fault. An unexpectedly nice day? Definitely climate change, definitely a sign of the end of the world.

Get used to the phrase. It’s much more … convenient.

Professor Blather on February 14, 2007 at 9:59 AM

Most people have stayed home from work in the Washington area because of the ice and snow that has covered the roads. The last four weeks or so has been one of the coldest winters.

So it would be nice if Republicans would be more like the Czech president and state the truth: Global warming is a socialist myth.

In the past 100 years the average annual temperature has gone up .6 Celsius, and most of the temperature readings supporting this study have been in urban areas. As everyone knows (except liberals), downtown areas are usually a few degrees warmer than suburban or rural areas, so the science behind this study that all global warming fanatics rely upon is completely suspect.

There is a new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide on Global Warming, that just came out from Regnery Press, a great conservative publishing house that has published the books from Laura Ingraham to Mark Stein.

Here’s another of Al’s incovenient truths:

Connecticut River is raised 8 inches for Gore “rowboat” photo-op; “Environmentalist” Veep wastes 4 billion gallons, worth $7.1 million

WASHINGTON (July 23) – What’s it take to float Vice President Al Gore’s boat? 4 billion gallons of water, that’s what – at a cost of more than $7.1 million. All for a good cause, however (at least according to the “environmentalist” Vice President), since it provided Gore a photo-opportunity to highlight a $100,000 grant to the Connecticut River Joint Commission.

See, they’ve changed their wording, as all slippery quislings do.

It is not “global warming” it’s now “climate change”. They can get away with being evasive in this way.

It is amazing to me that they can’t possibly believe this crap. We have people with educations talking as if the climate DOESN’T change, that it remains static year-to-year and SHOULD remain static year-to-year.

They can’t possibly believe it, therefore they have an agenda different from their stated goal.

THis will go away after the election anyway.

Gore’s blanket of lies is beginning to unravel. By the end of the year enough data will be in (spending more on global warming that cancer research) to show what a buffoon he is. Oh, their will be some die hards, but the real scientists (the ones with credentials and not just grants) are already backing away from the extreme global warming advocates. As the lack of proof about CO2 causing the green house effect continues to be published, and scientific journal papers that will be published showing no cause and effect begin to filter into the public arena. Even the uninformed public will begin to acknowledge the farce that has been foisted on us. And the millions the academics have collected…follow the money.

Gotta disagree with you on that one. The media machine is too powerful. They’ll buy it for another 5 or 10 years, or whenever it is that they change it to “global cooling” again, or when they find the new SARS, I mean Bird Flu, I mean….

By the way folks, for everyone (like myself) who’s getting pounded by old man winter right now, I’ve got a thought:
What if this is more hyping of intelligence and lying by President Bush? What if he’s putting out false temperatures and the media is going gung ho in to this storm the way they did when they listened to his lies on Iraq. I call for hearings in which we call the nations weather people to testify on whether or not the Bushinati pressured them to lie about the temperatures today that are tropical in reality.

RightWinged on February 14, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Oh. Right. As if there was “weather” before human beings started polluting the environment.

You Kkkonservative sheep would believe anything. Obviously, prior to the industrial revolution, every day was bright, warm, and mildly sunny.

I suppose I’m supposed to think a site called “HotAir.com” has nothing to do all this weather stuff that’s everywhere all of a sudden.

Sheesh.

I could agree with your first part (I just think it will be sooner than later), but your last part of the post goes off in space. Bush does not (nor any president) micro manage like you suggest. He, like many others, who do not understand climate and makes wrong decisions…that does not mean they are eviiillle. President Bush putting out false temperatures (take a breath and relax)? Long before Bush ever got involved (and mildly involved) the pressure was being applied to climate experts by other people and groups. The only use for hearing is to keep the liberals occupied so they don’t pass any more laws.

And tying it to the “hyping intellingence/lied” bullsh** we hear out of the Dems on Iraq… making the joke they would do the same over the current weather, saying that Bush is using the media to mislead us in to believing we’re in a blizzard, etc. etc.

Sorry, but I wasn’t saying GW/CC was an urban legend, I was just using them as examples of how most people won’t let go of something once they have accepted it as fact.

I’m not sure the public will recognize it as an extremist view, because you’re not going to see it debunked in the MSM. As with all LLL BS, once it becomes clear that it is false, the MSM will simply quit talking about it.

I had to chuckle a couple of weeks ago when two Greenpeace canvassers knocked on my door to request signatures for their petition against global warming. We were in the middle of an uncharacteristic cold snap with bone chilling winds and flurries. It was really a tough sell for those college kids and I felt a bit sorry for them.

I work in the environmental field and think we all would benefit from improved air quality, but the global warming scare tactics, questionable science, and finger pointing are not the best approach in my view.

MRegine on February 14, 2007 at 12:03 PM

I grew up on horror stories of global cooling. Like this one in Newsweek in 1975. And remember the population bomb? There’s always some new scare, and the solution is always the same – restrictions on how we live.

Professor Blather

One question they won’t answer is: “what kind of weather or weather pattern would be indicative of there not being a global warming/climate change crisis?”

You gotta pin them down on short term predictions. Ask Al Gore in September: “Al, if this winter is warmer than usual, will it be indicative of global warming?”. Then ask him “how about if it’s a really cold winter?”.

I think that y2k bug thing was a dry run for these crackpots, to test the hysteria capacity of the public. That hoax had a deadline, a “day of reckoning” after which the fear machine shuts down.

The g.w. hoax can go on indefinitely. When short term predictions don’t pan out, the numbers are simply adjusted and extended.

Perchant on February 14, 2007 at 12:21 PM

When something gets to be this humorous, I think it gets picked up and talked around by many.

I love the poking-fun-at-Gore & Co. title of this book: Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years

Singer and Avery present in popular language supported by in-depth scientific evidence the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming explains why we’re warming, why it’s not very dangerous, and why we can’t stop it anyway.

INC on February 14, 2007 at 12:22 PM

Okay, I’ve pinpointed the real problem. :-) It’s the New York Times.

This article details more than a century of this BS:

Page six of The New York Times was headlined with the serious concerns of “geologists.” Only the president at the time wasn’t Bill Clinton; it was Grover Cleveland. And the Times wasn’t warning about global warming – it was telling readers the looming dangers of a new ice age. The year was 1895, and it was just one of four different time periods in the last 100 years when major print media predicted an impending climate crisis. Each prediction carried its own elements of doom, saying Canada could be “wiped out” or lower crop yields would mean “billions will die.” Just as the weather has changed over time, so has the reporting – blowing hot or cold with short-term changes in temperature. Following the ice age threats from the late 1800s, fears of an imminent and icy catastrophe were compounded in the 1920s by Arctic explorer Donald MacMillan and an obsession with the news of his polar expedition. As the Times put it on Feb. 24, 1895, “Geologists Think the World May Be Frozen Up Again.” Those concerns lasted well into the late 1920s. But when the earth’s surface warmed less than half a degree, newspapers and magazines responded with stories about the new threat. Once again the Times was out in front, cautioning “the earth is steadily growing warmer.” After a while, that second phase of climate cautions began to fade. By 1954, Fortune magazine was warming to another cooling trend and ran an article titled “Climate – the Heat May Be Off.” As the United States and the old Soviet Union faced off, the media joined them with reports of a more dangerous Cold War of Man vs. Nature. The New York Times ran warming stories into the late 1950s, but it too came around to the new fears. Just three decades ago, in 1975, the paper reported: “A Major Cooling Widely Considered to Be Inevitable.”

Laura on February 14, 2007 at 12:26 PM

That’s happened already – the “climate change” scares started more than 100 years ago, and they’re still going on. As long as we have a dishonest, scare-mongering media, and a populace who is unwilling or unable to learn history, do research, and think for themselves, this crap will continue.

We’ve always been at war with Eastasia, and we’ve always been at fault for global cooling warming climate change.

Namely, that even after 9/11 (and 3/11 in Madrid and 7/7 in London and the USS Cole and African embassies and literally thousands of radical Islamic terrorist attacks all over the world) … liberals will angrily tell you that mentioning terrorism is “fear mongering.”

And at the very same time, they shriek like scared little girls about this tooth fairy Santa Claus “climate change” mythology they’ve invented.

Only a liberal could look at one threat that’s ALREADY happened … and worry about something else that’s completely imaginary.

The problem is our great-grandchilren will never know about it, because it will be either global warming or cooling hysteria in there time to, and the media and liberals (if we aren’t dead after a long period of Democrat rule) will still be hiding the truth.

Hell, we aren’t even told today about the 1970s global cooling hysteria. The ONLY reason we know about it is because of the internet, and the vast majority of people are completely unaware.

And as Laura showed us above, they’ve been hiding the history of climate change hysteria from us for over 100 years.

With an informed public, you’d be right, our great-grandkids would laugh… but there’s no reason to believe they’ll know the deal. The media/left time it well – every 30 years or so. That way adults are old people with failing memories by the time the next hysteria cycle comes around and people who were babies and young children are experiencing the hysteria for the first time.

I guess we are going through one of those “ice ages” they mentioned in “The Day After Tomorrow” (you know, Gore’s other movie).

Another Congressional five day work week shot to heck. Oh well there’s always next week.

flip on Cavuto quickly

In Toronto it’s -10F with 8 inches of snow. Overnight windchill will take it down to -35 or -40 (c/f same thing). The South Western suburbs got up to 2 feet with the storm. The commute was great this morning, the expressways were empty, since everyone bailed on the idea of working.

Redfield NY added 2 feet over the day, adding to the 12 it got over the last week. But remember everything proves Global Warming.

Have to love Canadian weather. Summer hits 40C/105F, winter hits -30 to -40F. Loverly.

So, what was on Cavuto, RW? I missed it.

Eh, wasn’t that great actually… Cavuto was leading in on a global warming segment, talking about the storm, but he’s not looked in to the issue enough to have made an ass out of the woman like he should have.

The real goal of the big players pushing global warming is a global tax. Nothing more.

Got it, a little late (and a little slow) but I got it now.

Years ago, running a large food processing plant, just before tomato picking season the brokers would all come in with their “climate change” weather story. This year the crop will be higher priced because; it was too wet, or too dry, or it rained all at once and flooded, or too hot…I found out that weather is never average.

Nothing more? How about global law? You can lump me in with truthers if you wish, but this is straight NWO stuff… just like the bogus SARS, Bird Flu, (insert pandemic alarmism disease of the year), etc. I could go on, but I think I’ve outted myself as a tinfoil hat wearer enough for the moment.

As someone who lives in a state where the temperatures change from 90 above in the summer to 20 below in the winter every damn year, I can say absolutely that Climate Change is real! I can also say the mankind has absolutely no effect on the weather as this has been occurring for thousands of years here.

As for global warming, there use to be a mile high sheet of ice that covered almost half of the state of Minnesota and that ice is no longer here. I don’t see global warming as a bad thing, except for causing an increase in mosquitoes, ticks, and leaches. Mosquitoes, ticks, and leaches are God’s natural liberals, nasty little bloodsuckers that have no apparent benefit and cause nothing but pain and discomfort.
