How to fly to a climate change summit? In a private jet

A private jet at San Francisco International Airport, California - KSFO was crowded with them during last week’s Global Climate Action Summit.

One of the hottest spots during the just-concluded Global Climate Action Summit was the private runway at San Francisco International Airport, where SFO spokesman Doug Yakel reports corporate jet traffic was up 30 percent over normal.

Airport sources told us that the carbon-spewing corporate jets nearly filled the landing area’s parking slots and that many had flown in for the conference.

The three-day climate confab drew more than 4,000 elected officials, business executives and environmentalists from around the globe and was aimed at addressing how to lower the carbon emissions responsible for global warming.

The summit was organized by Gov. Jerry Brown, who has been known to fly private.

In 2015, Brown flew with real estate mega-millionaire and major Democratic Party donor George Marcus via private jet to a climate change conference at the Vatican. The next year, the go-green governor jetted off with Marcus for a two-week trip that included stops in Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine.

This time, the governor and his wife, Anne Gust Brown, stayed grounded and carpooled in from Sacramento with his security detail.

Global Warming: T.he biggest package of lies ever broadcast to the entire world by the most dedicated hypocrites ever assembled.

yep, and the voters who continue to support these politicians will get what they deserve.

Now to further backup my claim to be an non-believer in Global Warming -

Lets consider a fairly simple statistic, widely accepted.

Nitrogen, 78.084% of air.
Oxygen, 20.946% of air.
Trace gases, 0.97% of air.

If that ratio were to change significantly say over the past 150 years, I might be alarmed. It has not. Therefore I am not alarmed.

Most (complete) combustion produces heat, CO2 and water vapor.

Heat is radiative, convective, and conductive.

If one aims an infared thermometer at the sky away from the sun even on hottest (or coldest) day of the year day or night it reads 32F. Space above us is a huge heat sink. Regardless of the surface temperature the temperature at 18,000 feet is always freezing. The sun's daily thermal power output to the exposed side of the earth continuously overshadows any summation of human created heat for all generations of existence.

Lets understand that CO2 is plant food and is essentially fertilizer. If the plants were not keeping up with human released CO2 via combustion then the O2 levels would be dropping (they are not).

Lets also have an understanding of statistical significance. Noise is present in sound, vibration, light emission, the stock market and even in the supposedly constant HP output of an engine. If consistent measurements were made outside of the [statistical significantly noise band] of [un-adjusted] temperatures then you might catch my concern. None of that has occurred in my lifetime.

So there is my simplistic view of the falsehood of Global Warming.

Believe what you want.

It is a free country.
