The Dutch government has been ordered to reduce the country's emissions of "greenhouse gases" by 25%, effective almost immediately. This, of course, is to mitigate the effects of Mann-Made Global Warming.
The court has ordered the Dutch government to reduce greenhouse emissions by 25 percent of 1990 levels by 2020.
Here in America, Obama's head of the EPA, Gina McCarthy, gave a speech yesterday in which she mentioned that "climate deniers" aren't "normal people". She didn't come right out and say that skeptics are sub-human, but she may as well have done so.
Meanwhile, over in Britain, the Met Office, which is the agency there that "studies climate change", warns that we are entering another Little Ice Age that will significantly impact the northern hemisphere:
Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nosediving to levels "not seen for centuries".
They fear a repeat of the so-called 'Maunder Minimum' which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago.
Lack of sunspot activity, they say, is to blame; solar activity levels are approaching the lowest levels in over 100 years. That's interesting, because about 100 years ago, people were driving their Fords across the frozen Willamette River in Portland. That was in 1924. In 1930, both the Willamette and Columbia Rivers froze solidly enough to drive across.
Gina can call me sub-human or any other names she wants to hurl, but I simply do not buy into the premise that human activity between the 1930s and the present have significantly affected planetary climate.
