Scientists Claim Earth Climate Change is Natural

RWNJ Photo from Cincinnati Tea PartyWISN (ABC-Milwaukee) is reporting that scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee used a synchronized chaos math application and applied it to climate data over the past 100 years. They have discovered that the air and ocean systems of Earth go through periodic periods of synchronization and de-synchronization. A shift in the climate occurs each time the systems lose synchronization. They are able to explain the various heating and cooling cycles of the past century using this technique.

Their research team found that the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and temperatures have actually leveled off since 2001. This fits their theory as the Earth is currently showing the signs of system synchronization. They expect that temperatures will remain steady or even cool for the next couple of decades, until another de-synchronization occurs.

Dr. Anastasios Tsonis brings up a key point in the whole matter. “But if we don’t understand what is natural, I don’t think we can say much about what the humans are doing. So our interest is to understand — first the natural variability of climate — and then take it from there.”  A scientist that uses common-sense… very impressive!

He went on to say, “So we were very excited when we realized a lot of changes in the past century from warmer to cooler and then back to warmer were all natural.” Perhaps man isn’t the main driver of climate change.

Cincinnati Tea Party Video

I guess I should start bringing my video camera with me to these events in addition to my regular camera. Beautiful video of this wonderful event that I found on Youtube.

Cincinnati Tea Party Pictures

NOTE: I’ve noticed a lot of people are finding this article while looking for photos from the April 15, 2009 event. If you want April 15 info, click here to go to that article!!!

Here are some photographs of the Cincinnati Tea Party. My appologies on the quality of the photos. I am normally a decent photographer, but somehow I had the settings horribly wrong on the camera but did not realize it. Everything came out completely overexposed, but I’ve edited them as best I can. My goal on the photo editing was to make the signs as readable as possible.

I took these photos mostly the 30-60 minutes prior to the event. The crowd sizes in these photos were probably half of what they were at the peak.  (Update: Official numbers came in at 5000 attending!!!) A very good turnout and a very friendly crowd.

I don’t have many photos of the speakers due to the fact my family and I were sitting in the back of the square. There was a solid mass of people in the square and some were spilling out beyond the square.

Several links to more feedback/photo pages are available on Michelle Malkin’s site.

A huge thanks to Mike Wilson for organizing the event. I that a lot of money was spent to pull off this event (not to mention the time). I encourage everyone that can to make a donation to Cincinnati Tea Party.

I also have to add this photo… This was posted to Instapundit and was taken by Chris Blanchard. They’re my kids though, so I’m taking the liberty to re-post this here while passing credit on the shot to him!

WSJ: Public Confidence in Obama Dropping

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that confidence in Obama is rapidly dropping. Obama’s numbers have now dropped to the point that they are lower than President Bush in this point in 2001. His net approval rating was as low as +6% this week according to Rasmussen. The article points out multiple signs of trouble in the polling data:

  • A third strongly disapprove of Obama’s performance.
  • Obama has lost nearly all Republican support and a large portion of Independant support.
  • Support is dropping more rapidly than other Presidents of the 20th and 21st centuries.
  • 83% are concerned Obama’s policies will not improve the economy.
  • 82% are worried about the growing deficit.
  • 78% are concerned about inflation.
  • 69% are worried about Government’s increasing role in the economy.
  • Less should have been spent on the stimulus according to a 3-to-1 margin.
  • Obama’s budget is opposed by a 46% to 41% margin.
  • Voters reject Pelosi’s idea of a second stimulus by a 2-to-1 margin.
  • The feeling is that the mortgage bailout will unfairly benefit the irresponsible by 48% to 36%.
  • 45% do not have confidence in the direction Obama is taking.
  • Less than half suport increasing taxes for expanded health-insurance (17% less support than 1993).
  • Only 20% support the most recent bank bailout.

Obama’s Earmark Test


It looks like President Obama is about to face a big test with the omnibus spending bill on its way to his desk. Obama made it clear that he was against earmarks in both the campaign and in his rhetoric during his presidency. The package has nearly 8000 earmarks in it (both Republican and Democrat), worth $5.5 Billion.

The question is, will Obama stand true to his anti-earmark principle and veto this bill? It isn’t difficult to take this bill and send it back to be reconstructed without earmarks. Unfortunately, the administration to this point has become expert at taking action contrary to what was promised and deflect the blame back on the previous administration.

According to an AP story, it appears that is exactly what Obama is preparing to do. White House spokesman Gibbs has already said “It represents last year’s business.” This has set the stage for Obama to not stand to his principles and use yet another instance of the blame game. At some point, the new administration is going to have to make a stand that they aren’t afraid to take responsibility for.
