Global Warming Requires A Warming Globe

Global Warming

I am open to the fact that the world may be warming.  I would expect that spaceship earth experiences many climate  trends defined by a global cooling or a global warming.  Further, I’m sure that this has been the case since the dawn of earth’s existence.  We’ve seen ice ages and tropical conditions shape the globe for ages.

I’m sure that it’s possible the globe is warming over time.

However, it doesn’t seem to have been warming in the recent time measured by science:

Global Warming.NoneFrom ClimateDepot:

According to the RSS satellite data, whose value for April 2014 is just in, the global warming trend in the 17 years 9 months since August 1996 is zero. The 212 months without global warming represents more than half the 423-month satellite data record, which began in January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult too convince skeptics that man is significantly contributing to the changing climate.

Pino’s Solution To The VA Disaster


Is it just me or is there a simple common sense solution to the Veteran’s Affair disaster?

Consider the 2015 budget:

The President’s 2015 Budget includes $163.9 billion for VA in 2015.

Then use the VA’s number for vets:  Call it 22 million.

Last, the average cost of insurance:

As of February 24, 2014, the average premium for an individual health plan selected through eHealth without a subsidy was $274 per month…

So, do the  math.

$274 a month is $3,288.  Across 22  million vets you get $75,000,000,000.

Double the price of the plan and you STILL are $14 billion to the good.
