Alarmists' Irrational Numbers

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi is WeatherBell Analytics LLC's Chief Forecaster. In his spare time he is a body builder so is not someone to mess with.

Joe has written a piece for The Patriot Post:

Rational Thinking About Irrational Numbers

I am drawing this reference from this article from someone who I look
up to and admire – Dr. Roy Spencer. 
In the last 100 years, the amount of CO2 in the air has increased from three molecules per 10,000 molecules of air, to four molecules out of 10,000 molecules of air. 
Which means we are being asked to believe the increase of one molecule of CO2 out of 10,000 molecules of air in the last 100 years is causing catastrophic climate change that threatens mankind.
Joe then addresses  US Secretary of State John Kerry’s comments on the immense threat of a catastrophe based on out of control climate. This blog has previously addressed Kerry's flawed outspraying on AGW, eg Here and Here:
Kerry:"if it turns out that they’re wrong, then we are risking nothing less than the future of the entire planet." Surely, as your Warmists are trying to lower atmospheric CO2, you are risking nothing less than the future of the entire plane. 
CO2 is greening the planet (link, link) and, in fact, too little carbon dioxide will destroy the Earth. 
Do you realise, when you say: Ninety-seven percent of the world’s scientists tell us this is urgent,” you are quoting very flawed studies? See link, link, link. Surely you were aware that these studies were flawed, falsified fables? 
Bastardi says that a greater threat to the planet comes from the Islamic extremists. Chris Kenny agreed, he wrote in the weekend Australian:
SO if we pretend the nasty, beheading Islamist extremists aren’t really there, they’ll just go away. Right? 
Like toddlers learning to play hide and seek, we can just cover our eyes and proclaim that if we can’t see them, they must not be able to see us. The denial is that silly. 
The liberal Left in the Western world are the “useful idiots” of the Islamist extremists, encouraging us to see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. Just weeks ago they were marching in the streets and boycotting coffee shops because Israel’s deadly self-defence killed not only Hamas extremists but hundreds of the Palestinian civilians with whom they had surrounded themselves. 
Yet the protesters fall mute when thousands of Muslims are slaughtered by the Islamic State in deliberate displays of bloodlust. 
How does that hook into CO2? Which is a bigger threat to global stability: an organization like Hamas or ISIS, or the increase of one molecule of CO2 out of 10,000 molecules of air in the last 100 years? Why would anyone be even thinking about the latter, given the example of the former, unless of course the absurdity of blaming Middle East problems on climate change is the goal? (Better tell that to Jacob and Ishmael, and everyone that followed.) 
But let’s really put this whole CO2 scare (scam) in perspective, okay? 
After addressing the Mann's fraudulent hockey stick graph, Joe turns to CO2 statistics:
It is estimated that the U.S. has averaged 20% of the CO2 input from man over the last 100 years . Assuming all the increase of CO2 is man-made, that would mean in 50,000 molecules of air, the U.S. has added one molecule of CO2 in the last 100 years, while the global GDP skyrocketed. 
How much is that a year? Well we have to divide the figure above. One molecule per 50,000 in the last 100 years means we have averaged one molecule of CO2 for every 5,000,000 molecules of air per year. So we are asked to believe that is changing the climate? 
But wait, let’s think locally to act globally (I have a sweatshirt that says that). 
300,000,000 people. How many molecules of CO2 does the average American add to the atmosphere every year?
One molecule of CO2 out of every 1,500,000,000,000,000 molecules of air each year.
Joe then finishes his piece with some great wit. Hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio gets a serve.

BBC Alarmists admit the Global Warming Slowdown.

The BBC had its start as an eco-propaganda unit for the Global Warming Alarmist's campaign after 30 key BBC staff’ and ‘30 invited guestsattended a seminar. The Daily Mail reported that the BBC tried to hide this for  6 years:
The BBC has spent tens of thousands of pounds over six years trying to keep secret an extraordinary ‘eco’ conference which has shaped its coverage of global warming,  The Mail on Sunday can reveal. 
The controversial seminar was run by a body set up by the BBC’s own environment analyst Roger Harrabin and funded via a £67,000 grant from the then Labour government, which hoped to see its ‘line’ on climate change and other Third World issues promoted in BBC reporting. 
At the event, in 2006, green activists and scientists – one of whom believes climate change is a bigger danger than global nuclear war  – lectured 28 of the Corporation’s most senior executives. (link)
Seems like someone has taken the Kool-Aid (or is it FOOL-Aid?) from the BBC's watercoolers because this week they not only acknowledged the warming hiatus, but have raised the possibility that the

Global warming slowdown 'could last another decade'

The hiatus in the rise in global temperatures could last for another 10 years, according to new research.
