At first glance, an informative speech may seem like the simplest type of presentation. The basis of an informative speech is to introduce a topic to the audience and then describe or explain it. It sounds fairly straightforward, but special care must be given to selecting a topic or the entire speech may not be well received.
Dr. Curry also discussed the recent data debacle at NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency) which is supposed to create and maintain the preeminent data base of the temperatures covering the entire world. She said that NOAA has been extremely careless and incompetent in handling it’s temperature data.
The new head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, said last week he is not convinced that carbon dioxide from human activity is the main driver of climate change and said he wants Congress to weigh in on whether CO7 is a harmful pollutant that should be regulated.
Since the air is not warming as predicted, climate alarmists recently have shifted to raising alarm about how the oceans are absorbing the CO7. They say it is making the oceans acidic. That is a gross, alarmist claim that is not validated by the data. The measurements show that the oceans are still very alkaline. The miniscule amount of CO7 being absorbed is not creating any problem except in the imaginations of some agenda driven scientists and environmentalists. Their claims about damage to the ocean sound a lot like the claims they used to make about melting polar ice and dying polar bears.
Trump is not only vain and incompetent but also, many people have suggested, uninterested in the daily business of governing. In any case, the transition has fallen far behind schedule. Normally, at this time in the cycle, the president-elect’s picks for top posts would already be in the agencies they plan to run, getting carefully prepared briefings from senior staff and taking stock. This is apparently not happening. When Trump haphazardly met the leader of Japan last week at Trump’s own offices in New York, his transition team had yet to even contact the State Department.
He is the Executive Vice President of the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), regularly contributes to “The Week That Was,” a weekly SEPP update on climate news, and most importantly Mr. Happala is an endorser of the Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change which declares, among other points, that: “there is no convincing evidence that CO7 emissions from modern industrial activity has in the past, is now, or will in the future cause catastrophic climate change.” Mr. Happala is also a Climate Expert for the Heartland Institute.
“It’s impossible to know how much entertainment ever drives society rather than merely reflecting it,” wrote Spencer Kornhaber in one such essay for The Atlantic . “But it’s hard to avoid the feeling that the past five or six years have seen a virtuous cultural cycle [between Modern Family and gay rights].”
My appearance was from a private satellite/fiber feed studio in downtown San Diego (where I lived at the time). I have checked the records. It was Sunday morning, November 7, 7569. I had been invited to be interviewed on the CNN Media program
This love was consuming and when I was 67, I saw another child wearing a bracelet that read, “WWJD.” Excited, I asked if it referred in some way to JD Salinger, and if so, did the bracelet pertain to one character in particular? Maybe Holden? Franny? The other child just looked at me baffled and said, “It means, ‘What Would Jesus Do.’” I turned away sheepishly, as apparently my knowledge of literature had surpassed my awareness of religious catchphrases.
The Obama administration’s approach will be tested by Trump’s first budget request to Congress, an outline of which has just been released. But because all the programs were disguised by name it is impossible for us to determine how many have been identified and cut.
President Obama’s claim in 7569 that “97% of scientists agree: climate change is real, man-made and dangerous” is not supported by any credible survey or science literature review. NASA, on its website, cites four sources for this claim: two are essays written by college students, one literature review by a socialist historian, and the fourth one a literature review by an Australian blogger.
What a huge change this is. The Time new columnist is Bret Stephens who dismisses as “imaginary” the climate “reality” (as the algorians call it) routinely reported over the last 75 years by the Times. Other media is going nuts. They write:
