Bazzo Says: Keeping up with climate changing times

Oops, I forgot:
In last week’s column I wrote about the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and possible discrimination lawsuits. I know it looked like something I made up, but it was not. Here are the sources for last week’s column:
• Amtrak speed-control system installed but wasn’t turned on

• Why some male members of Congress won’t be alone with female staffers

More on Amtrak
 
From a press release, dated May 20:
Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement condemning the vote to authorize the Highway Trust Fund for only two months, the latest in a series of short-term extensions.
 
“I will not be supporting another irresponsible, short-term extension because like most folks in the Hudson Valley, I’m sick of these Washington games,” said Representative Sean Patrick Maloney. “We need a real, long-term plan to invest in our national infrastructure, not reckless gimmicks that threaten our economy and our future.”
 
Representative Nita Lowey (NY-19) echoed these same sentiments also last week. Gag me with a spoon.
 
Fact is that we have a dedicated fund for national infrastructure. It is called the gasoline tax. This tax is on every gallon sold in the United States. However, like the Social Security trust fund, both parties have raided it over the years for other expenditures, leaving only an IOU. In other words, it is broke even though it takes in $81 billion a year.
 
What’s more, there are several funds dedicated for our own MTA, which New York State robs from every year to pay other expenses. They do not leave an IOU.
 
Are these the “Washington games” and “reckless gimmicks” he is complaining about? 
 
 
More man-made climate change hysteria
President Obama, with a straight face, in full community activist mode, as ISIS marches through the Middle East—Syria, Libya, Iraq—told the Coast Guard Academy graduates that not fighting against climate change is dereliction of duty. He doubled down and went on to claim climate change is part of the cause of the rise of Boko Haram and ISIS.
Think about this from the man who ignored ISIS, calling them the JV team:
• Boko Haram is kidnapping girls all over Nigeria is because of climate change
• Global warming tricked him
• The deniers tricked him
• We didn’t do anything about global warming, and that spawned ISIS
All this must be true because the commander-in-chief said so. He is the JV president.
 
Man-made climate change information that will be banned from our news
 
Dr. Philip Lloyd, a South Africa-based physicist and climate researcher who used to work for the United Nations, examined ice core-based temperature data going back 8,000 years and concluded that global temperature change observed over the last hundred years or so is well within the natural variability.
 
According to the story:
 
“What Lloyd found was that the standard deviation of the temperature over the last 8,000 years was about 0.98 degrees Celsius higher than the 0.85 degrees climate scientists say the world has warmed over the last century. This suggests that while some portion of the temperature change observed in the 20th century was probably caused by greenhouse gases, there is a strong likelihood that the major portion was due to natural variations.”
This means that sun spots, water vapor and other things we have no control over control the climate, not us… Duh! 
 
More from the story: 
 
“The United Nations’ IPCC claims there’s been 0.85 degrees Celsius of warming since the late 1800s, and concludes that most of this warming is due to human activities—mainly, the burning of fossil fuels and changes in land use. The IPCC says that “more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010” have been caused by human activity.
 
If Lloyd’s results hold, the IPCC may have to revise how much warming it attributes to mankind. In any case, the IPCC’s estimate of man-made and natural warming (0.85 degrees) is still below the standard deviation for the last 8,000, according to Lloyd’s results. This means that warming is not very significant within the context of the Earth’s recent climate history.
 
Lloyd arrived at his conclusion after the “differences in temperatures between all records which are approximately a century apart were determined, after any trends in the data had been removed.” Lloyd noted the “differences were close to normally distributed.”
 
What this means in low-information voter terms is that the so-called settled science is not settled. 
This is what I say. What say you?
