Putin: "We Should Be Grateful To President Trump: In Moscow It's Cold And Snowing"

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday during a panel at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum that the US investigations into whether the Kremlin meddled in the US election are nothing more than "hysteria," and that the anti-Russia sentiment in the US was about as virulent as anti-semitism.  “It’s like saying everything is the Jews’ fault,” said Putin, who said the blame for Hillary Clinton’s November loss lies squarely at the feet of the Democratic presidential candidate and members of her party, according to a report.

“This reminds me of anti-Semitism,” Putin said. “The Jews are to blame for everything. An idiot cannot do anything himself, so the Jews are to blame. But we know what such attitudes lead to. They end with nothing good.”

Putin, who was being interviewed by NBC's Megyn Kelly, brushed off questions about meetings that members of the Trump campaign - including then-Sen. Jeff Sessions - had with Russian officials such as ambassador Sergey Kislyak. 

So our ambassador met someone. That's his job. That's why we pay him,” Putin said. “So what? What's he supposed to do, hit up the bars?”

Putin was amused when Kelly touched on the subject of Russian foreign news coverage spreading “disinformation.” Putin accused her “colleagues” of dragging Russia into their coverage unfavourably.

“Let’s end this,” Putin told her. “You will feel better and we will feel better.”

Donald Trump won because he had run a more effective presidential campaign than Hillary Clinton, Putin said, adding the US intelligence agencies may have faked evidence of Russian hacking, according to Reuters. Allegations of Russian involvement were nothing more than "harmful gossip," Putin insisted, there were no "Russian fingerprints" on the alleged hacks, Reuters reported.

Earlier this week, Putin denied the Russian state had directed any hacking operations designed to influence the U.S. election – though he did say Russian “patriots” could have been behind the plot on their own, Fox reported.

Following President Donald Trump's decision Thursday to take the US out of the Paris Climate Accord talks, Putin said that there's still time to reach a deal on the 2015 pact even without the US's involvement, before adding, in English, "don't worry, be happy," according to Reuters.

Despite the critism that has been heapened upon Trump by other world leaders since he announced his decision to leave the accord last night, Putin said that he "wouldn't blame Trump" for leaving the accord, though he hoped the White House would set its own climate rules. 

By the way, we should be grateful to President Trump. In Moscow it’s raining and cold and even, they say, some snow. Now we could blame this all on American imperialism, that it’s all their fault. But we won’t.

And though he said he hopes that US sanctions against Russia would soon be lifted, he noted that they did have some positive effects. "We had to use our brains," Putin said. "Not rely on oil and gas dollars."

Allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin have dogged the new administration since before the inauguration. In recent weeks, US media have taken aim at Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, whom NBC and WaPo reported was a “person of interest” in the FBI’ campaign.

As a reminder, Kelly is set to interview Putin in St. Petersburg Friday for a Sunday night special that will air on NBC.

Mr. Putin, the MSM hates you for many of the same reasons they hate on Trump. You are men with Balls that are leading their people and haven't bought into the NWO one world Gov't. You call it the way you see and don't bother with the politically correct BS.

So, why is the rise in temperatures so worrisome?

For one thing, as temperatures rise good farmland will become desert (e.g., dust-bowl conditions will probably return to the American Midwest).

Another major problem is sea-level rise.

Have a look at http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs2-00/

The U.S. Geological Survey people claim that;

The Greenland ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 6.55 meters (21.5 feet),
the West Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 8.06 meters (26.4 feet),
the East Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 64.8 meters (212.6 feet),
and all other ice melting will raise sea-level 0.91 meters (3 feet).

For a grand total of 80.32 meters (263.5 feet).

So, what does an 80 meter (263 feet) rise in sea-level mean. Have a look at the following map of the world after an 80 meter rise. It means that over one billion people will have to be resettled to higher ground and that much of the most productive agricultural land will be under water. Fortunately, at current rates, the Greenland ice sheet will take over a thousand years to melt and the Antarctica ice sheet, much longer. However, the greater the temperature rise the faster the ice sheets will melt, bringing the problem much closer. Remember, the huge ice sheet that recently covered much of North America, almost completely melted in only 15,000 years (today, only the Greenland ice sheet, and some other small patches of it, remain). Since then (15,000 years ago), sea-levels have risen about 125 meters (410 feet), only 80 meters to go.

The Earth doesn't need to be saved...it was around, long before we were, and will still be around, long after we're gone.

What needs to be saved, is people. Smart people. Saved. From all the dumb people.

Like I said to Pods yesterday:

"I hate these "sustainability" assholes with a burning passion. As an example of their hypocrisy:

Comcast has "sustainability initiatives"; between both houses, they send me junk mail constantly...trying to get me to upgrade services, and trying to get service installed at the other place. It amounts to about 10-15 lbs. of needless paper, every year. We'll split the difference and say 12.5 total, for both places, or 6.25 lbs. each.

One day, I figured out (using really loose numbers) that they're probably marketing to about 30M people like me...and using those numbers, you're talking over 90,000+ TONS of unnecessary junk mail that they're sending out...and that's just 1 company.

Paper mills creating carbon, delivery vehicles creating carbon, paper not always getting recycled (est. 30% gets recycled), JUST so they can pimp their "special offers"?

And then these hypocritical, lying motherfuckers have the GALL to lecture us about "let's not be wasteful", "let's save the planet"...

You gotta be fucking kidding me.

I'm not an 'environmental whacko', but I do make an effort to not be wasteful, and clearly folks like us are doing a better job of it than the "Sustainability" wankers are."

If you AGW assholes want to do something useful with your lives, you might consider suicide, so you stop creating carbon with all the bullshit hot air you blow around.

Trump should have had a large copy of this chart displayed behind him when he announced the withdrawal from the Paris Climate agreement. The top chart shows 5 million years.   https://www.giss.nasa.gov/research/briefs/hansen_15/fig1.pdf "The past million years has been essentially a continuing ice-age, broken occasionally by short-lived interglacials. It is also why those who have engaged in lurid talk over an enhanced greenhouse effect raising the Earth’s temperature by a degree or two should be seen as both demented and dangerous. The problem for the present swollen human species is of a drift back into an ice-age, not away from an ice-age.”   Frederick HoyleThen there is our planet's pesky, ~100,000-year, orbital Eccentricity cycle that probably isn't going to stop doing what it does just because we pay a bunch of carbon taxes that Wall Street can then fleece as rights-to-polluted are traded on Blood and Gore's Chicago Climate Exchange.  Earth's orbit of the sun becomes more and less eliptical and off-centered (Eccentric) over the 100k cycle.  When we are in a more centered, less elliptical phase (which is where we are heading now), the North Pole just doesn't get as close to the sun during the summer (as during a more elliptical phase) so less snow melts during the summer, and it doesn't get as far away from the sun during the winter so there is a little warmer with more moisture in the atmosphere, and more snowfall. Overall, we receive less solar irradiance the higher the eccentricity.  This will keep driving the ice ages.http://www.indiana.edu/~geol105/images/gaia_chapter_4/milankovitch.htm  http://www.leif.org/research/M-Cycles-2.png

The data was obtained from sediment core samples. "The new technique works by analyzing variations in the ratio of magnesium to calcium contained in the fossilized shells of tiny microorganisms called foraminifera trapped in successive layers of sediment on the seabed.

There is plenty of geological evidence for the ice ages.  And the mini ice ages. And the strongest linear regression correlation to carbon increase is the growth of China. A country that could have developed along with modern environmental standards but chose the route of the Stone Age.

"What needs to be saved, is people. Smart people."Yes. All three of them.Did you know that they started the SETI program because they couldn't find any intelligent life here on Earth? They never looked on ZH, which does host the three to whom I referred.As for AGW, if all the people who claim to believe that crap would simply off themselves and their families then, with approximately 50% fewer people the environment would be saved for quite a long while.

You didn't raise the issue of the USPS sending out this junk mail AT A LOSS and requiring extra money to make up the loss and thus provide bonuses for the bumb fucks in their high places.  Calculate what all that waste back to MOTHER EARTH will do for the planet.  AND add-in what it costs for me (us) to throw that trash away (unrecycled in many cases) that we don't read and shouldn't have been sent to us in the first place.  Plus the wasted fuel by the USPS.  Now we are talking some BUCKS plus helping our planet.

I believe he was being sly.  This is a message to Putin-haters.  This is a message to those who believe "Putin said it so it can't be true." He put Global Warming and Jewish Conspiracy on the same page.  Who knows where that could lead?  Sure, it proves he is muzzled but remember that he did not have to mention the Jewish Conspiracy AT ALL.  At the moment it is just a minor blemish in the snowflakes' belief systems.  A little bit of Cog-Dis to irritate them like a small stone in their shoe.Shit!  Now I'm starting to sound like Scott Adams.Yeah, I give me low odds but I do think he's trying to pry a small crack into snowflake's belief systems.  At this stage it is all he can do and get away with it.

There is no physical evidence for the AGW Theory:  (Anthropogenic Global Warming), the theory that the Earth is warming due to human caused increases in greenhouse gasses, primarily, carbon dioxide (CO2).  There are only climate models that purport to prove the theory.  The climate models have many inaccuracies which completely invalidate the models.  Among the inaccuracies are the following:1.       The climate models have no way of accurately estimating the temperature effect due to changes in cloud cover.  Changes in cloud cover have been shown to have much more effect on global temperature than changes in CO2 levels. 2.      It has been proven that past periods of increasing temperature preceded increases in CO2 by as much as 800 years.  The models assume that the C02 increases precede the temperature increases.3.      Water vapor feedback: The AGW theory models assume that the Earth’s temperature goes up 1.1 degree C for each doubling of CO2 just based on the effect of the increases in water vapor which are caused by increases in CO2.  This has never been proven.  The models do not take into consideration the cooling effect of cloud cover which also results from increases in water vapor. 4.      Aerosols:  The AGW models use changes in atmospheric aerosol levels as a fudge factor to make the models agree with actual temperature changes, even though there is no data to support this claim.      5.      The climate models have no way of modeling vertical heat vents.  Vertical heat vents can form when the ocean surface temperature is over 28 degrees C. Heat is transported to the upper atmosphere which cools the earth.   Heat vents transport so much heat that their effect on global average temperatures is more than the increases caused by CO2.  The Pacific Vertical Heat Vent in the western Pacific alone vents enough heat to completely cancel out the effects of CO2 increases. 6.      The climate models have no way of modeling changes in the Sun’s level of radiation.  It has been shown that changes in the Sun’s radiance accounts for at least 50% of the global temperature increase since 1850, the end of the Little Ice Age.  Proponents of the AGW Theory say that the Sun’s total irradiance only varies by 0.1%, so has little effect on global average temperatures.  This is true, however there are large variations in several components of the Suns total irradiance, which have been shown to have large effects on the Earth’s temperature.  The UV wave component of the Sun’s total irradiance can fluctuate by as much as 70% which can change the Earth’s global average temperature by several degrees C.  The Sun’s magnetic field also fluctuates.  The magnetic field shields the Earth from cosmic rays. Cosmic rays can fluctuate by 10%-20%. Increases in cosmic rays have been shown to cause increases in cloud cover.  This has been shown to have a greater effect on global temperatures than changes in CO2.     7.      The Hockey Stick:  The climate models do not take natural, global temperature cycles into effect.  In the late 1990’s the Hockey Stick Theory was developed by Michael Mann which disregarded, and drew a straight line through, all the past temperature cycles except the warming trend from 1970-2000.  A straight line was drawn through all past cycles to 1970 and then showed the increase in temperatures to 2000 to form the hockey stick.  This theory denies the existence of all the Earth’s cycles which are well documented to have a greater effect on global average temperatures than changing CO2. The proponents of the AGW theory have stated many times that the cycles like the Eddy Cycle are regional and not global.  In the past 15 years, the Eddy Cycle has been proven to be global by many people around the world.  Among the most important cycles are the following: a.      Milankovitch Cycle: Caused by changes in the eccentricity, axial tilt, and orientation of the Earth’s orbit.    The major components are on a 400,000 year cycle.  Most of the components are on a 110,000 year cycle, which cause the ice ages. On average, the Earth is in an ice age for 100,000 years with a warm, interglacial period of 10,000 years.  The Earth is currently nearing the end of the Holocene Interglacial period.  These cycles cause differences in solar radiation of up to 6.8%.    b.       Eddy cycle:  1000 year cycle:  Has been documented to have changed phases globally 25 times since the last ice age.  It is caused by changes in solar radiation and a combination of the 206 year solar cycle and the Pacific and Atlantic oceanic cycles.  This cycle is responsible for: the Modern Warm Period (1850 - present), Little Ice Age (1300-1850), Medieval Warm Period (900-1300), Dark Ages Cold Period (400 - 900), Roman Warm Period (250 BC-400 AD), etc.  The Medieval and Roman warm periods were warmer than the Modern Warm Period.  Logs from Icelandic fishing boats indicate that the Arctic Ice Edge was much further north during the Medieval Warm Period than today.  Diaries from vineyards in the UK indicate that grapes were grown for winemaking in Central England until the early 1300’s.  This was 500 km further north than where grapes can be grown today.  Farms also flourished in Greenland where farms cannot exist today. The coldest point of the Little Ice Age was the year 1700.  The Earth has been warming at a rate of 1 degree C per century since then.  The warming rate is the same both before and after the Industrial Revolution.    c.      Suess / deVries Solar Cycle:  206 years.  Caused by variations in the number of sun spots which causes fluctuations in the sun’s total radiance.  The Sun has been in hibernation, or a sun spot minimum, since 2009.  The previous minimum was the Dalton Minimum (1790 – 1830).  Dalton minimum caused total crop failures for several years in New England and Upstate New York.   The current minimum should cause a cold period extending to the late 2030’s.  This causes a 1 degree C difference in global average temperatures.  The 20th century had a higher number of sun spots than any century for 10,000 years.   The Dalton minimum occurred during a cold phase of the Eddy Cycle.  The current solar minimum is occurring during a warm phase of the Eddy Cycle, so the temperature variances should not be as extreme as during the Dalton minimum.d.      Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO): 60 years.  Caused by the alignment of the Earth with Jupiter and Saturn, the two planets with the highest forces of gravity.  The alignment causes the Earth to be pulled closer to or further from the Sun by a distance of three Sun diameters. Also causes extreme changes in tides causing reversals in warm and cold water masses in the Pacific.   The PDO has been shown to change the Earth’s average temperature by several tenths of a degree C.  The PDO has been in a cold phase since 2000 and has deposited abnormally cold water off the coast of California, causing an extended drought.   The PDO has caused warm periods from 1860-1880, 1910-1940 and 1970-2000.  This cycle was discovered in 1992.  In the early 1970’s when climatologists were predicting the coming of an ice age, they were merely extrapolating the cold phase of the PDO cycle (1940-1970).  Today they are forecasting extreme warming by making the same mistake:  They are extrapolating the warm phase of the PDO cycle. e.      Schwabe Solar cycle:  Solar activity increases and decreases on an 11 year cycle.  This was discovered in 1755 and has been well documented since.  We are currently in Cycle 24 which started in 2009.  The current cycle is breaking records for low solar activity.  Whenever an 11 year cycle is this low, it is always followed by 2 more abnormally low cycles, which is what happened during the Dalton Minimum.Conclusion:The conclusion is that the Earth was in a warming period from 1970 – 2000 primarily due to a maximum level of sun spots, the warming phase of the PDO combined with the warm phase of the Eddy Cycle, with a relatively minor contribution from increases in CO2.   Since 2009, the Sun has gone into hibernation for the first time since the Dalton Minimum (1790 – 1830).  We are also in a cold phase of the PDO, since 2000.  The 206 year solar cycle and the PDO will be the primary climate factors for the next 20 years which will be a significant cooling trend.  The AGW climate models did not predict this cooling trend because the models to not take any of the climate cycles into consideration.  The AGW proponents are using unsubstantiated aerosol levels as a fudge factor to explain the current cooling trend. The Future:The cold phase of the PDO should last until 2030.  The cold phase of the Suess / deVries Solar Cycle should last until sometime in the 2030’s.  These cooling trends will be offset by the warming phase of the Eddy cycle.  Sometime in the 2030’s all three cycles will be in the warm phase.  This is when the Earth will begin warming as it did in the Medieval Warm Period.  The warm phase of the Eddy Cycle will probably end around 2100 - 2200 and may coincide with the cold phase of the Suess / deVries Solar Cycle.  It is during this time that the Earth will be as cool as it was during the Dalton Minimum.  The next Ice Age could start within the next 1000 – 2000 years.   In 2100 - 2200, England will be exporting wine to Continental Europe, and the French will apply import restrictions on English wine, like they did in the 11th century.
