Rock Solid. Elizabeth May gets it wrong again.

Elizabeth May: "The data is rock-solid and it tells us that there's now 30 per cent more CO2 than at any time.”

Any time? There has historically been much more CO2 in our atmosphere than exists today. For example, during the Jurassic Period (200 mya), average CO2 concentrations were about 1800 ppm or about 4.7 times higher than today. The highest concentrations of CO2 during all of the Paleozoic Era occurred during the Cambrian Period, nearly 7000 ppm -- about 18 times higher than today. The Carboniferous Period and the Ordovician Period were the only geological periods during the Paleozoic Era when global temperatures were as low as they are today. To the consternation of global warming proponents, the Late Ordovician Period was also an Ice Age while at the same time CO2 concentrations then were nearly 12 times higher than today-- 4400 ppm. According to greenhouse theory, Earth should have been exceedingly hot. Instead, global temperatures were no warmer than today.

So May gets another one wrong. Time to add it to the collection of other May foibles.

Calling Canadians stupid and tries to lie her way out along with a few others.

May loses it at the Munk debates and gets her Mic shut off, while her mouth keeps on going. Oh and there is the AIDS comment as well. It all starts about the 2:20 mark.

Dang it after watching this video I just remembered I have to return my library books before May calls me stupid.

May getting cut off at the Monk debates was a classic case of major meltdown.
I can't find the link,you wouldn't happen to have it would you?

It seems that the only ones who really take Elizabeth May seriously are the cabal of Greens currently in control of the party.

They need to get rid of her ASAP.

About every 3 weeks I visit a chiropractor. He gives me advice on how to stretch before and after I run. He adjusts my spine and neck where all the stress of the business day gathers.

AA does for my brain what a chiropractor does for my back. Thanks Al!

Patrick Ross, I disagree with your assertion that the Greens take her seriously. In fact, she is facing sharp divisions within her own party on her policies. Why do you think she is proroguing a Green leadership review?

Patrick Ross said...


Sorry I missed your comment.

The point being that May may apparently be able to evade that leadership review with the help of her party's national executive.

As I said, "the cabal of Greens currently in control of the party".
