Sun is the primary force of the Earth's climate system

Mike(Huckabee , George Soros is a very partisan and controversial figure that is for sure.

Some people support candidates, political parties and causes because they want to do what is right. Other people see financial advantages and this motivates them.

Even though it would be enticing for a political enemy of George Soros to attribute his support for Democrats to a desire to see the economy tank – and so he could profit from economic chaos - it does appear that he donated 6 billion to various causes including to the needy in Africa.

With the little I know of him now, I am not going to pin a red tail on this donkey.

Speaking of speaking for causes. Al Gore in the year 2000 had a net worth of around $1-2 million. Now, with all his causes and his work to save the earth his worth is "well over $100 million."

Ed Markey has teamed up with Congressman Henry Waxman the chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee to craft a new clean energy bill.

Fine, but is Henry Waxman who is introducing legislation on this matter ... really conversant with the science he is claiming to uphold?

He tells Tavis Smiley, (video too at this link)
"the overwhelming consensus of all the leading scientists that have looked at this issue is there is a warming of the planet, it's manmade, caused by our burning of carbon fuels, and it's happening faster than anybody ever thought it would happen.
We're seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point - they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn't ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there's a lot of tundra that's being held down by that ice cap."

Now, just so that you see I am not here just to make fun of Congressman's Waxman's misuse of a few basic scientific terms (he might have had in mind the word "melting". The science behind the alarmism is becoming increasingly questioned.

Just today another fear regarding accelerating methane emissions was found wanting and scientists are now expected to breathe a little easier.

"The finding is expected to come as a relief to scientists and climate watchers concerned that huge accelerations of global warming might have been touched off by methane melts in the past and could happen again now as the planet warms."


Also, more and more scientists and journalists are looking at the inactivity of the sun and wondering if they underestimated the impact of the highly active on the strong warming in the last century they now see the sun growing weaker and less energetic. They remember the maunder minimum (less energetic sun) coincided with "the little ice-age".


"'This is the quietest Sun we've seen in almost a century,' says NASA solar scientist David Hathaway. But this is not just a scientific curiosity. It could affect everyone on Earth and force what for many is the unthinkable: a reappraisal of the science behind recent global warming.

Our Sun is the primary force of the Earth's climate system, driving atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns. It lies behind every aspect of the Earth's climate and is, of course, a key component of the greenhouse effect. But there is another factor to be considered. When the Sun has gone quiet like this before, it coincided with the earth cooling slightly and there is speculation that a similar thing could happen now. If so, it could alter all our predictions of climate change, and show that our understanding of climate change might not be anywhere near as good as we thought."

I could go on to share that was a period of time earlier in the 1900's that the Artic lost a lot of ice and some people were losing their nerve about the melting ice. Even the Vikings once lived happily in Greenland during a warm spell.

People should keep in mind that GE (which owns a lot of liberal and influential media outlets) hopes to get lots of money from "clean wind power". So the NBC networks promote green which serves the financial interests of GE. "The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil." Who is helped when a corporation makes money off the backs of the poor – in a misguided attempt to fix a climate problem that doesn't exist?

This is controversial but if NBC doesn't look into scientifically reputable blogs like
