Tangled Webs

At The Resilient Earth, in “Climate Science’s Tangled Web”, Doug L. Hoffman reports that bogus reports of global warming from alleged scientists continue:
Recent days have seen a number of announcements about our changing climate.  As it turns out, Arctic ice is rebounding, sea levels are dropping and things just are not going according to the IPCC's plan for catastrophic global warming.  Faced with reversal after reversal, it might seem logical for mainstream climate scientists to admit that they are wrong, that global warming is not taking place at a breakneck pace, but this has not happened.  Instead, climate change apologists are weaving a tangled web of excuses—hot is cold, wet is dry, up is down.  No matter what happens to the world we live in, the root cause according to the doomsayers is always the same:  it’s always global warming’s fault.
Sea level rise due to global warming has been a topic of intense debate for years.  While the minuscule rise of the world's oceans has been fairly steady for most of the last 20 years, every once in a while sea levels do something unexpected.  In the past two decades global sea levels increased at a rate of roughly 0.12 inches a year, compared to 0.07 inches from 1961 to 2003, according to satellite data.  A recent study of sea levels, as measured by tide gauges, suggested the rate of ocean rise has declined in the past decade around Australia and New Zealand.
See also  Bill Muehlenberg, at Quadrant Online, on “The growing desperation of the climate alarmists”:
You can always tell when real science has long ago given way to hysteria and agenda setting when the arguments being dragged out become more and more bizarre.  Less and less science is offered, and instead we get all sorts of blatant moonbattery.
We have had several prime examples of this lately.  Consider a major player in all this, Al Gore.  He has gotten so desperate to push his whacko agenda that he is now saying that climate change skeptics are basically in the same camp as racists.
Just as we had to fight the ugly racists in the past, Gore says we need to do the same with those ugly climate change skeptics today.  And we are supposed to embrace the alarmists as the epitome of rationality and science?  Sorry Al, but I don’t have enough faith to be a true believer like you are.
Then we have the case of an Australian true believer who has actually said we can link climate change to mental illness!  Yes you heard me right.  An ABC report puts it this way: “A report has been released that draws a direct link between inaction on climate change and long-term social and mental health problems.  [...]
I suppose it is only a matter of time now before scientists will be telling us that climate change is responsible for migraines, impotence, and the common cold.  Indeed, they will soon inform us that the London riots were due to climate change.
 A recent song:
Climate Change Is Responsible for All the Things That Have Ever Gone Wrong

Polar bears numbers may be on the rise,
we know what to blame whenever one dies.
See rivers inundate each sun-baked plain
for global warming brings more and less rain;
farms will be barren or covered with mud
as all crops suffer from a drought or flood;
more dearth, devastation, much more death—
we poison the world with every breath.
    Climate change is responsible for
    all the things that have ever gone wrong.
We may see fewer storms or maybe more
then thirsty nations will be stirred to war.
Give me liberty or give me the rope
for man has nothing when he has no hope
    Climate change is responsible for
    all the things that have ever gone wrong.
You’ll hear the eloquent wind in the trees:
“our weather will spread more nasty disease.”
Across the mountains see a want of snow;
and early this morning I stubbed my toe.

    Climate change is responsible for
    all the things that have ever gone wrong:–
    woeful standards in atrocious schools,
    everyone in a ship of fools,
    the London riots, the Gillard coup,
    and man’s first disobedience too,
    the fire at Pharos, all modern wars,
    the rise and fall of the dinosaurs,
    the wall street crashes, and poor TV—
    all the bad things that ever can be.
    Climate change is responsible for

    all the things that have ever gone wrong.
