Jan Brewer Wonders Where The Hell Global Warming Question Came From: VIDEO

BrewerGW

Jan Brewer, the Arizona governor known for fierce anti-gay and anti-immigrant policies and the awkward on-camera moment, was asked about global warming this weekend and responded with predictable ignorance.

"Everybody has an opinion on it and I probably don’t believe that it’s man made," Brewer told KTVK. "I believe, you know, that weather elements are controlled by other things." She later asked the reporter, "Where in the hell did that come from?"

It was man made, of course. 

Watch KTVK video of the exchange, via TPM, AFTER THE JUMP.

Sorry, the video takes a second to load...

  1. Correction to my previous statement: the linear increase is of 0.16 C per decade.

  3. They need to take her OUT of the oven, let her 'rest', wrap her in foil, put that in a plastic bag (tie tightly to cut down on the fumes), place in the freezer till trash day...then take it out to the curb. It is NOT recyclable - so avoid the blue can at all cost.

  4. Jan Brewer is as unattractive on the inside as she is on the outside.

  5. I can understand that a lot of Politicians can be ignorant. But usually they only get as far as the House and Senate. It is seldom that a Governor is both stupid AND ignorant.

  6. Average GLOBAL temperature anomalies are reported on the web by NOAA, GISS, Hadley, RSS, and UAH, all of which are government agencies. The first three all draw from the same data base of surface measurement data. The last two draw from the data base of satellite measurements. Each agency processes the data slightly differently from the others. Each believes that their way is most accurate. To avoid bias, I average all five. The averages in Celsius degrees are listed here.

    2001 0.3473
    2002 0.4278
    2003 0.4245
    2004 0.3641
    2005 0.4663
    2006 0.3930
    2007 0.4030
    2008 0.2598
    2009 0.4022
    2010 0.5261
    2011 0.3277

    A straight line (trend line) fit to these data has no slope. That means that, for over a decade, average global temperature has not changed. If the average thru October, 2012 (0.3691 °C) is included, the slope is down.

  7. Apparently, someone neglected to follow the links in my last link. The cherry picking is not taking into account prior temperature readings and jumps.

    Rather than relying in "his" averages of different measurements, lets see what NASA has to say about it:

  8. To be fair, please cite via links your numbers, Mr. Pangburn. I'd very much like to see them.

  9. you show me someone who denies the realities of man's impact on climate change and i'll show you a complete fu**ing idiot.

  10. Just 'man' Lil' Canadian, or women,too?

    I can say without doubt that the air quality in places like Boston and NYC where I grew up is considerably cleaner than what it was when I was a child and kid, when the whole place reeked of diesel fumes much of the time, and pollution especially in winter was really noticeable. Much of this has to do with the de-industrialization of North America [U.S. and Canada], very expensive filtering techniques for places like coal power plants that work quite well, nuclear power, cleaner fuel, more efficient motor vehicles, etc., Go to China and India [for example] and it's like the way we were a half century or more ago.

    Yes, I believe in climate change, but this is a normal occurrence. Human beings are still no match for mother nature or just plain physics of our world. 'Progressives' failed miserably in their social engineering debacles from the mid 20th century onwards especially, so they co-opted the environmental movement, reasoning no one could argue about clean air, clean water, etc., They managed to get gigantic government subsidies for this and that, which big business and con men and women everywhere loved and still love, which is today the primary motivation for the 'green' movement and 'climate change' movement. Follow the $$$ trail.
