Climate Science, Anyone?
An Ausralian published a blog that the Prime Minister of Australia, Mr. Tony Abbot is an audacious opposition to Climate Science.
Since he became Prime Minister, the budget for climate science had been drastically slashed, causing the unemployment of a quarter of the climate scientists.
If budget cuts are necessary for more imperative use, the Australian Prime Minister, Mr. Tony Abbot, should not slash a quarter of the climate scientists only. He should ax the climate science outfit down to a quarter or to zero.
Climate Science indeed.
For generations, Meteorology has been good enough in forecasting weather and climate with only the barometer, wet-and-dry bulb sling psychrometer, anemometer, compass, thermometer, and rain gauge as measuring instruments. Civilization needed no more than information from the meteorologist that a violent weather was brewing nearby. People took necessary precautions. If ever there were casualties from a devastating weather, there never was significant impact on population. Life went on and weather forecasting mainly remained as news accessory. There were no indications that Meteorologists desired to know the mysteries of climate and weather.  
Computers and observation satellites were invented and went in operation from which climate science was invented and evolved no too long ago.
Now climate science speculates human activities cause adverse climate changes. Would you believe the CO 2 level of countries are now automatically monitored? This will be used in the future to control, among meriads of other things, your use of home cooking stoves !!! According to climate science cooking contributes to the CO level in the atmosphere which traps heat from the earth that causes climate changes and global warming and will eventually suffocate all living creatures.
Had there been no computers and observation satellites there would not be bunches of climate scientists to purport such speculations today.
Therefore climate science is only a product of computers and satellites. It considers weather and climate as quantifiable statistical data from which their properties can be theoretically predicted for today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year and far into the future. Only ... wait until yesterday's forecast for today's weather is totally in error.
Climate science has done and will do nothing for humankind than provide employment for minds mesmerized by computers and satellites. Not bad at all, but it is abused.
Once again, Meteorology is good enough as it has always been. Humankind does not really need to know the mysteries of, let alone attempt to control, climate and weather .
Tended Greenhouse
White House - most everyone knows what it is.
Green House or greenhouse - a house painted green? NO! It is a space enclosed in glass or plastic where plants (vegetables or flowers) are grown.
In its simplest form, without ventilation or air conditioning, gases, essentially carbon dioxide, water vapor and air (oxygen, nitrogen and inert constituents) produced within increase in concentration and are trapped in the greenhouse. Heat generated within and heat from the outside are also trapped.
A group of minds, now popular as GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES or CLIMATE CHANGE PROPONENTS, have capitalized on the theory that the earth's atmosphere is a greenhouse, that endangers life and welfare. They claim and support this theory with their works: largely travels, hundreds of photographs, may be a few scientific data. Then they announced these claims and supports with volumes of publications. Then they came to court Congress for legislation(s). They have tried but failed to persuade Congress to enact climate change legislation.
Congress is far knowledgeable and intelligent, thank God Almighty.
No amount of data and publications have exhaustive proof the earth is a greenhouse tomb.
Take a little greenhouse. Engineer and install a gas disposal system composed of: (1) Duct with vacuum (exhaust) system on the roof. (2) Blower system fed with filtered, cleaned outside air. Air condition the space if possible.
Now, given the capacity of the disposal system, put anything that will produce gas of any kind, including flatulence, in the greenhouse.
Now turn on the gas disposal system.
Neglect heat generation and transfer in this concise writing.
Now verify the existence of any gas in this greenhouse which the GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES claim "will endanger health and welfare". 
There is no room for tendentious claims in this little greenhouse. 
CO2, the gas species blamed by GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES to be responsible for blanketing heat on earth and will eventually suffocate the earth's inhabitants, is a very volatile organic compound. Its boiling point is -56.6°C and sublimes at -78.5 °C, therefore it cannot be anything but gas at ordinary temperatures. Its kinetic energy increases directly with temperature. Although heavier than air, its diffusivity in air is one of the highest among the gaseous elements and compounds, meaning, once produced in the atmosphere, it disappears in the air, reaching inconceivable distances away (preferable to saying it is airborne). Also, 179.6 cc of CO2 dissolves in 100 parts of water at 0°C and 90 cc in 100 parts at 20°C, so it is very soluble in cold water.
The earth is a mysterious, overwhelmingly huge greenhouse of the kind just described. Its vacuum system is the vast outer space. Its blower system is the restless winds. It is absurd to calculate the capacity of the earth's "gas disposal system" and compare it with the capacity of its inhabitants to emit gases. The earth is definitely not a greenhouse tomb
Even if massive quantity of CO2 is produced in the atmosphere its concentration cannot be localized. It will quickly diffuse into the air, as it were stolen by a thief, even unto the fringes of the atmosphere; even more so when hot. It will be swept by the winds to incalculable heights and distances. Its chaotic path ends at the fringes of the earth's atmosphere. From there the extremely fast, elusive CO2 will wildly disperse into the infinite vastness of outer space.  (I doubt if anybody is certain it is still CO2 at this stage). The mass of CO2 settling by gravity on the bodies of water on earth will be absorbed by the water whereby it will be consumed and/or converted by certain biological or chemical processes (Marine biologists have purported CO2 is processed in coral formation. It is no surprise because coral is essentially carbonaceous, the basic component of which is CO2). The vegetable kingdom has been long known to consume large quantities of CO2.
Barring unscrupulous, corrupt motivations, it is not doing justice to accuse COof any wrong doing in the earth's atmosphere. 
If the earth were a greenhouse tomb, we would not be here today doing more harm to fellowmen than the harm they claim the slandered CO and associates are doing.
And, should all the earth's systems fail, there is an Almighty God, Creator of the earth, who knows best to abate and fix the failure.  We can only hope it will not be at the all-consuming expense of the earth's living inhabitants.
Heaven's Statement Of Account
Approximately 5 inches of snow have fallen on this area during the last 3 days. Total accumulation over the week would have been over 13 inches had the eager plowers not plowed the snow away; also if the snow hadn't sublimed during intermittent periods of no snowfall. Well over 87% of the entire U. S. A. has been blessed with 5 to 11 inches of snow at this writing. Silly of me I have been rash in suspecting winter was thinning and waning every year. Albeit, as if Heavens were saying personally, "I have no balance due to unerring, grateful habitats."
