Christian Climatologist Preaches Climate Religion
Meet Katherine Hayhoe the associate professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas Tech University, director of the university’s Climate Science Centre and a devout Christian.
Hayhoe has married her Christian beliefs, with her belief in Climate Religion, to produce a result that shows she has little understanding of the planet’s atmosphere and demonstrates a ready willingness to regurgitate the usual Green lies and misinformation.
In April 2012 Hayhoe gave a talk to students at Hardin-Simmons University about Climate Change and her role at the Climate Science Centre:
“It may happen any day, but we don’t know when it is,” she said on the topic of Christ’s expected return. So in the meantime?
“Make wise choices,” said Hayhoe. The associate professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas Tech University spoke to Hardin-Simmons University students and others Tuesday on climate change and her role as director of the Climate Science Center at Tech.
To Hayhoe, the earth, being “God’s second-greatest gift” after Christ himself, is made up of resources given by the creator.
But in return, she said, people have produced massive amounts of waste, resulting in an island of plastic garbage in the middle of the Pacific Ocean as big as Texas, despoiled the habitats of millions of species and plants, and created air pollution from burning fossil fuels.
An island of floating garbage the size of Texas in the Pacific, a plague of plastic of biblical proportions, or is it?
Plastic is definitely a problem in the oceans, both for animal life and the environment, said Angel White, a microbial oceanographer at Oregon State University in Corvallis. But there are not floating towers of milk jugs, toilet seats and rubber duckies swirling in the middle of the ocean.
Instead, the majority of plastic in the sea consists of confetti-like specks that are spread out widely and nearly impossible to see with the naked eye.
There is of course the faint possibility that Hayhoe got the mythical plastic floating Texas confused with the Climate Change con artists in the Maldives.
The islands will allegedly slip beneath the waves in 2019 according to the Green meme, which does beggar the question why are the Maldives building a new airport to cope with increased tourism over the next 25 years, or using one of their islands as a national garbage dump.
Rubbish Island is a far cry from the Maldives’ famous turquoise waters and white sands.
Those who have been there describe vast piles of rubbish and perpetual smog and smoke.
The Greens frequently quote the environmental credentials of the Maldives, says it all really.
The next item Hayhoe addressed was the planet’s atmosphere, and remember Hayhoe is a professor of atmospheric science:
Most insidious, she said, are heat-trapping gases — colorless and odorless, but to Hayhoe and other climatologists producing an obvious impact on the planet.
“Every time we burn these gases they produce heat, and we know how much we’re been producing over the last 100 years because we keep good records of how much gas and oil we’ve been burning,” she said.
There is a natural greenhouse effect, she said, created by earth’s atmosphere.
As a blanket keeps one warm by trapping body heat, the atmosphere traps the earth’s heat and doesn’t let it escape into space, she said.
Unbelievable, it is common knowledge that heat escapes through the upper atmosphere into space, always has and always will.
In March this year NASA produced a video showing that the sun heats the planet, and CO2 and NO in the upper atmosphere actually cool the planet, Hayhoe must be aware of this information, yet she choses to ignore it.
“The 2000s were the warmest decade on record, 2010 tied as the warmest year on record, and 2011 was the warmest La Niña year ever recorded,” she said, a weather pattern that usually means cooling.
How do we know people are responsible? Climate models have been created using massive supercomputers that simulate everything from clouds to ocean currents to plants and animals and people.
The much pushed Climate Models have predicted warming that real observation has shown is not happening, the warming alarmist models are incapable of predicting Climate events from history, and as for the modelling of cloud feedback, the models get cloud feedback wrong, but only by 70W/m2 (that’s 19 times larger than the CO2 effect).
Hayhoe has “faith” in the models, but is clearly religious rather than scientific faith.
“With these models, we can create a world without people,” she said.
A world without people, the Green warning alarmist dream.
