11:00 am
thank you so much. housing, at least one bright spot in the economy. naturally, the president wants to talk about it, but how much further should he take it? speaking of real estate, i know you recognize these gentleman, the scott brothers, drew and john of hgtv. they are going to talk about the good, the bad, and you're a total idiot of renovations. judge napolitanoments -- wants to know the difference of what snowden did and what the nsa did to you. why are the closings a result of a failed foreign policy? now, a big money game, america's ballparks, wifi, those stories and more coming up on this hour of "markets now." ♪ >> three days in a row, market's dough, maybe four, a loss on the
11:01 am
new york stock exchange, on the dow, stocks shaving off early gains, down 35 points, at the new york stock exchange, what are you looking at? >> dagen, first thing you noted, this could, in fact, be the fourth straight day of losses for the dow and the s&p. that's the longest losing streak of the year, 2013, dating back to december of last year, so if, in fact, we do finish lower on the dow and s&p, it will be the first time we had four straight days of losses. don't forget, coming off the six straight weeks of gains, and the bulls had a nice run hitting the record highs, but, certainly, profit taking has been underway. we've gotten in plenty of earnings, market moving events, and the dollar is lower today. dow jones industrials, names like caterpillar, microsoft doing well. up over 2%, american express, home depot, plenty of winners to speak what's weighing on the dow here are big guys,
11:02 am
chevron, at&t, ibm, intel, and jpmorgan, in the news with the mortgage backedded securities in the mortgage crisis, but those are the losers on the dow jones industrials. we'll see how it ends, right now, in a mix, because of the nasdaq and gains. back to you. dagen: thank you, nicole. president obama eager to highlight a sliver of the economy doing well, real estate. taking to the interpret yesterday at zillow to answer questions about the recovery, housing finance reform, some of what he talked about, but is he on tricky ground? monica is here, and chief economist at first trust advisers, brian, to you first. when you talk about real estate and associating yourself with a recovery, but one that could be called into question, is he treading on dangerous ground here? >> he could be. you know, i actually think the
11:03 am
real dangerous ground is, believe it or not, is trying to trash the economy. it keeps growing. it's what we call the plow horse economy. day after day after day, better numbers, today, initial claim, but what worries me is every time the government tries to get involved in a market, it's slowing it down, and, in fact, if you really look at this recovery, the two slowest areas of recovery are employment and housing. the two areas the government tried to help the most, and that's why they are slow to recover. i -- i don't mind his proposal getting rid of fannie mae and freddy mack, but the problem is as long as the fed is holding interest rates at zero, it's awfully hard to get private banks back into the lending game. who wants to lend at zero in a risky environment? dagen: right. before we get on to fannie and
11:04 am
freddie proposals, talk about the political calculation of doing this, talking to people saying the housing market is recovery, but home ownership right now is at an 18-year low, which says that lot of buyers out there, a lot of people benefiting from the recovery are investors like hedge funds and foreign buyers. >> right. the vast section of middle america is not really taking part in the housing recovery. that is a great point. from the political perspective, it looks like the president, you can't really blame him for wanting to make political hay with the part of the economy that's actually showing some signs of life, so i get it from a political stand point, but from an economic stand point, i think you and brian are absolutely right that he's actually going out on a limb here because you don't know how long, as brian says, the fed is going to keep interest rates down. you don't know how much longer that the housing sector is going to bb showing signs of live, and you mentioned unemployment. that is still pretty disastrous. the only reason the rate goes down is because so many people drop out of the labor force. when you have that situation, it's not going to be a
11:05 am
sustainable thing for the housing sector to continue to grow as it has been. when he's putting himself out there, connecting himself so strongly to the housing sector, that is taking a big political risk. >> brian, frankly, it seems shocking. i was reading some of the president's comments from the talk that he gave yesterday, the q&a session he did, talking about the private market stepping in and getting the government out of this industry, and i wanted to know, do you think that this proposal on fannie mae and freddie mack has legs, and will it go as far as you'd like it to go? >> oh, boy. i wish we'd get red of fannie and freddie 30 years ago, and right now, i think fannie and freddie are a disaster waiting to happen. they really are the only entities in the economy making 30-year fixed rate mortgage, and they are doing that at extremely low, historically low interest rates, and so if we do get into
11:06 am
an environment of higher inflation and higher interest rates, they are going to take massive losses. i think that's one of the things that politicians see that they are setting up fannie and freddy to be the savings in loan industry. >> you say they will take massive losses, no, we, the american taxpayer take massive losses. >> exactly. i believe the only way to get them out of the lending game is bring the banks back in, and i'm -- it's -- imagine you're a banker, would you make a three and a half percent 30-year fixed rate loan right now given the fears of inflation out there, gold at 1300 an ounce? i wouldn't make that loan, and so we have to get interest rates off the bottom, and the way you do that is get the economy picking up, and so right now, i think there's a lot and lot of problems that face this housing market. i will say this. i -- --
11:07 am
>> let monica get in. she's -- >> sure. dagen: dying to jump in. >> yeah, absolutely. >> and i agree with you, brian. i mean, to try to get private banks to take this over and try to eliminate fannie and freddie or any kind of intervention in the economy or broader economy that led to this, give private banks incentives to go ahead and make the loans. you're still seeing banks very corks about doing that. what i heard from the president and administration is they are actually advocating, at least this week, assuming it's going forward, advocating same policies that got us into the mess in the first place, meaning, having the government put a gun to the banks' heads saying make loans to those not credit worthy and cannot carry a emergency mortgage. it's social engineering, this led to the meltdown, overflowed into the general economy, which is why we still have effects from the great recession. let's not make the same mistakes
11:08 am
again, but the administration can't help itself. dagen: brian, final word. >> and, monica, you made a great point, and this week, also, the government is going after these banks and suing them for making these loans five, six, eight years ago. >> right. >> we got this cycle going where the banks are funding the government agencies, but the government's forcing the banks to do things that eventually get them in trouble and fund agencies again in the future. it's -- this whole thing is a mess, and i think -- if i were the president, i'd try to get out of it, but he's really not trying as hard as i'd like him to. >> well, because maybe he knows when the interest rates go up and the 30-year fixed rate mortgages they start disappearing, people are going to get angry about it, and he's going to take the blame, not ben bernanke. hey, guys, so good to see you both. thank you so much for being here. >> yeah. >> you bet. dagen: see you soon. an update on a story highlighted yesterday, cities ready to use
11:09 am
imminent domain to deal with underwater mortgages. we said that the plans would wind up in court, and, oh, how quickly that's happening. banks representing bond investors, filing suit against richmond, california, a city we talked about yesterday, in attempt to block the city's plans to seize mortgages using ininnocent domain. the plan allows the city to forcibly buy up mortgages at possible below market values, then refinance those mortgages to lower payments for the homeowner or borrowers. deutsche bank and wells fargo filed suit for investors black rock, pacific investment management, and fannie mae and freddie mack. there you go. we'll see where it goes. and, we have a winner, or three. a trio of tickets matching the winning numbers for the $448 million powerball jackpot. two in new jersey, one in minnesota. the winners have yet to claim prizes, and after taxes, the three winners split $258

11:14 am
>> that's the part i don't understand. oh, my god, this is so surprising, i'm so surprisedded that a stock that went from 29 to 130 a share in three months did good, that the earnings are up, i'm so shocked! wall street is shocked this morning that tesla has great earnings. who the heck are the people who are surprised? in the march quarter, the march quarter, they beat estimates by 200%. okay, so the surprise -- tell me you're surprised that the beat was not already factoredded into the share price. tell me that you're surprised that, you know, by the quality of the earnings, you know, you can question that, but the narrative that you're surprised, are you kidding me, mufng says every other week we're kicking butt, rocking and rolling. don't be surprised by the fact they beat. dagen: you like the stock here. >> i'm out of it, unfortunately. played it three times, took profit, extraordinary, but my thinking was that the best news in the world could be factored into it, so you could be
11:15 am
surprised at the reaction at the stock, but, again, the narrative is changing, no longer about a car company, but a technology company, and the fact of the matter is that one day we will be a society that drives almost all electric cars, and it looks like they are so far ahead of the game that maybe they'll be calling the shots, and maybe at some point, general motors says we'll buy you, ford, bmw, whoever it is, it's more than just a technology company -- i mean, more than a car company to a technology play. dagen: the cars are impressive. they really are. >> one of the reasons i played it, went to the mall six or seven months ago, and there was a store at the garden state mall, the buzz there was like apple at the peak, people in and out of the cars, giving information, and people love the car. they really do love the car. dagen: the sedan, it's good looking. great to see you. >> don't be surprised. dagen: i know. i would opt for a tesla over, like, a leaf or a volt, charles, thank you so much.

city les in the world. it just beat out islamabad, pakistan for the distinction. they took into account, locations, political perceptions, size, and language barriers. ouch. those are the news headlines on the fox business network. back to you, dagen. dagen: no way newark is worse than islamabad. that's the crazyist thing i've seen, comically awful. >> it's awful. dagen: the other city, in angola? something like that, that's great. >> talk about the lineup. dagen: cheers no newark. >> there you go. dagen: good to see you. >> you too. dagen: spies and our freedom, what the u.s. government charged edward snowden with, espionage, why that when the nsa does the same thing? the fox news analyst, judge, good to see you. what are you talking about? what is the nsa doing similar to
11:23 am
what snowden did? >> we learned about the nsa in dribs and drabs as a result of the revelations on june 6th. first government acknowledged all they had was billing records, who called whom when and for how long they spoke. we now know that the past two and a half years through a secret court, secretly expanding laws far beyond what congress intended the laws to go, the nsa has captured the content -- the content, of every tfn call, every e-mail, and every text message sent within the united states of america. that's an enormous amount of data. they don't look at all of it, but it's there, and they can access can with the press of a few keys on the right computer. in order to justify their doing this, they have selectively leaked some of it. we learned they not only leaked it to the press that, hey, we stopped 50 plots, not really
11:24 am
plots, but stings, and saw a grave danger in yemen this week. that does not justify why we need to listen to the calls and read e-mails if we're worried about yemen, but extremely disturbing, as recently as two days ago, yesterday, and, again, this morning, that the nsa has been leaking raw data that it obtains from the phone calls and from the e-mails to the drug enforcement administration, and the drug enforcement ad mings and other law enforcement groups in washington use the data to institute to initiate criminal prosecutions. now, you say, well, so what, bad guys deserve to be caught. we have a fourth amendment to prevent the use of a dragnet to catch spies as a basis to start criminal prosecutions and to make it even worse, we now know that in a manual prepared for irs agents, they were told that if their information came from
11:25 am
the nsa, and they were put under oath as to where they got the information from, they were to lie about it. dagen: right. >> and claim it came from somewhere else. this is extremely disturbing if any of the lies took place in cases where the defendants have been convicted. guess what, defendants are now entitled to a new trial. dagen: doesn't congress, though, have the power to stop this? >> yes and no. congress can put a stop to it by reducing the budget or giving a budget and say what to do with the money and what they cannot do. libertarian republican congressman combined with liberal democratic congressman conyers last week in effort to do that on the house of representatives fell short by six or seven votes, persons that would need to change their vote in order for it to pass, but when congress learns what the nsa is doing, congress cannot tell the public or other members of congress about it because of laws that congress wrote, which requires the nsa to reveal
11:26 am
things in secret, but prevents members of congress from doing anything about it. dagen, what representative democracy is that, that when the people we send to washington to represent us learn about spying, they can't tell anybody about it. dagen: i think you get a little more fired up when you are here in person. >> can i tell you what else i'm firedded up? i was born in newark, new jersey. it was awhile ago, as you know, but i can't believe the polls claiming it's the least friendly city on the face of the earth? that's not true. i can take you to wonderful places in that town. dagen: first, over islamabad, islamabad was second! >> you know, if your wonderful husband allows it, we're going to go on a date in newark, new jersey when i get back to new york. dagen: i'm so there. i'm so there. they'll never find us again. judge, good to see you. >> pleasure, my friend. dagen: you're a dear, dear person, thank you so much.

of another drone strike in yemen and closure of american embassies in the middle east and africa, lieutenant colonel oliver north is on the foreign policy concerns, but we want to look at shares of orbitz first, how high is the question? >> wow, this stock is pretty impressive. look at what it's doing right now. you can see it's up 36%, hitting new multiyear highs, and it's an incredible performer this year in 2013, and it's up 356% this year, and any person at home would die for a stock like this one. they also operate their website they doo so well, cheap tickets. everybody's familiar with cheap tickets, that's under orbitz worldwide up umbrella. they did so well, they logged double digit growth. growth bookings jumped also. they did face one-time charges that hit some numbers, but ultimately, they continue to see

11:33 am
not realistic to afford it move-in ready so what we do on the show is show people with a little work, you can turn a house that works like it's beyond repair into something that could be your dream home and keep it well wildfire the budget, put equity in your pocket. no cutting corners. it's a matter of knowing when you look for a house, what's worth a property to buy, what's worth it, and what's too expensive to go in a property. >> even with houses that are fixer uppers, there's good and bad deals. dagen: "love it or list it," i watch on hgtv, there's serious structural problems in the houses that people have bought. is that the big hurdle for people in finding a fixer upper? >> one of them. they are hidden. people puts it back to the inspector or somebody else, but, unfortunately, inspectors can't open the walls and see everything hidden. unfortunately, seller, intentionally hide problems with the house, and a lot of people who did renovations in the 70s, 80s, and 1990s, they compromised the structure, and they covered
11:34 am
it up with dry wall. >> one thing to keep in mind, though, just because there's a structural issue, it's not that it's not worth buying, but check it out, find out the cost to repair it, and make an educated decision. dagen: right. renovation budgets used on the show, you always get a lot dean -- done for what seems like a little money in a lot of cases. is that a legitimate budget and include labor? >> yeah, i don't charge for my time. that's the biggest difference in the budget. dagen: that's the biggest worry when you renovate is the contractor. >> the plumbers, electricians, that's all included in the budget, and anything that we can get, say we get appliances for free, we include the retail cost of that in the budget so that it's realistic, but you'll notice when the budget's getting tight, i get in there and do more and bring the homeowners into help. >> there is a lot. you know, on the new show "brother versus brother" there's huge transformations done in two or three days. some jobs take a month to do,
11:35 am
but those are all things people can do on their own. know what you can do and what tasks leave to the professionals. >> don't bite off more than you can chew. dagen: particularly with technology, people, men and women, toe a lesser extent, they don't know how to do construction work anymore. they don't -- people don't know how to change a lightbulb in new york city. i just think that a lot of times you see the people doing the work, and the average person can't do it. >> here's my rule of thumb, if you don't know what the heck you're doing,.net -- doing, don't infrastructuring -- don't do it. if you don't know where you are going, ask for directions. hoppestly, there's so many people that watch shows like ours, and they think, oh, i can did this. don't. you set yourself up to be liable for a lawsuit down the road. for example, if you do renovation on a basement, and you put in a suite, your own electrical, don't get the permits you need for the job, 20 # years down the road, if it
11:36 am
burns down because of your work, you're liable. there's no time frame that kneeing gaits your responsibility. you need professionals doing certain jobs and stick to things you are comfortable doing. dagen: i have a house built in 1965, like a flat roof modern ranch house, no great shakes, but i have the original flair oven in there, the one in "bewitched," it's in the house because i'm afraid to begin a renovation that won't get finished. >> the funny thing is, if people want to get rid of stuff like that because it's not energy efficient as some -- dagen: oh, hell, no. it heats five rooms. >> people pay money for that because they love it, but the next show, the next season that we are doing, taking homes in the connecticut area, and trying to make -- dagen: that's my -- >> just joking. dagen: how did you know it was connecticut? >> i researched -- no, you want to understand where to spend your money and get rid of something costing you more money like appliances or windows that are not efficient.
11:37 am
these are the things that, you know, on the surface, they are not pleasing like new flooring, but they keep your bills lower monthly. dagen: i wanted to ask, particularly, as a realtor, what are the worst renovations you've seen or things -- like even the counter tops stainless steel appliance thing looks dated, but in terms of the worst stuff you've seen? >> with counter tops, they get wild with the tat terns, and if it's too wild, it's out of style fast. big thing in the kitchen, a new renovation to the kitchen, but they don't change the layout, you're not adding value to the home, just a crappy layout with a new cabinet. dagen: how do you figure a good layout with a kitchen? >> i have a work mind, and when i walk in a kitchen, ai walk in the studio, that's not bad, i might change that -- kidding. with a kitchening, i look at, can we move the walls to change the foot print? noceps and putting lipstick on a pig and new cab innocents and 5
11:38 am
bad layout. >> you get a free quote and show great designs. it's silly to try to do your own kitchen without a professional giving you a free quote and idea what to do. dagen: other bad renovations, anything you saw people tried to do or start doing that was hideous? >> oh, yeah, and we buy houses where a guy was a horder, and rather than buying wood for the outside of the house, he stolen realtor signs and, like, you know, for sale signs, and stuff like that. you want to look at all the red flags. if you buy a house, pull carpal tunnels back, move furniture. >> do due diligence. don't rely on the inspector or real estate agent to do it. dagen: don't get wrapped up in bidding wars. >> don't be pressured into making a decision. bidding wars are fine as long as you understand the value. do your own market analysis on the house before you offer. >> people get stuck on pretty. don't get stuck on how beautiful
11:39 am
it looks. dagen: i did that. there was a town house i looked at once, it was great the first time, and second time, i noticed all the problems because it was a renovation that the guy had dope himself. guys, great to see you. i could talk to you forever. you have three other shows to take care of, drew, john, terrific. please, come back. >> we will. dagen: you have three shows, catch -- i need a lot of help on my house, "brother versus brother" on sunday nights at 10 p.m., but there's "property brothers," you name it, they are everywhere. a decreasing situation to shift gears here, yemen, american embassies closed in the middle east. turning to colonel oliver north about it all. cbs still off with time warner cable. showtime too, but that's not stopping viewers from watching, say, "under the dome," as they are pirating it. wifi the rage in ballparks. showing you why coming up. speaking of treasures, you want

north host of "war stories" on fox news. colonel, great of you to be here. is this an effective way to fight the threats picked up? >> two strikes in 24 hours is unusual, but not unprecedented, and certainly, the hell fire missile is a great way of killing terrorists. unfortunately, there's a couple things that are important that the team doesn't apparently notice. first, the total reliance on technical intelligence. there's no human intelligence at all collectedded in yemen, syria, other places like afghanistan and pakistan. the absence of human intelligence says you rely totally on signals intelligence or observation from overhead, and second of all, you don't get to interrogate those you hit with a hell fire missile, and so the end result is you know less about what's going on on the ground than you did before you started. dagen: are you concerned about the amount of information that we've been releasing about the
11:45 am
communications that led to the terror threat? is the government basically going too far with that? >> well, it is another example of the schizophrenic nature of the obama administration because sthai want to lock up a guy who worked for nsa as a contractor, and on the other hand, there's government officials out there thumping their chest about how effective our intelligence was in intercements what they thought was a global threat all over the middle east. that's why we have 22 diplomatic posts closed. it also, again, emphasizes the lack of human intelligence, so i look at what's happening here with this administration as perhaps proof they've been spoofed by the bad guys. there's no indication there was ever really a big attack planned. second of all, what the bad guys have probably figured out is we are listening. we are able to interpret telephones and satellite phones
11:46 am
and their internet, and so if you wanted to spoof the americans to see how they'd act, hold a conference call among terrorists and see what they do. on the other hand, we're leading up to 9/11, anniversaries are important to terrorists. we had better not do what we did last year and let it go by unprepared. dagen: at the same time, the president's standing by -- well, lifting the moratorium on releasing guantanamo bay prisoners back to yemen. >> yeah, and we know there's several hundred that were in jailbreaks now going back to become suicide bombers. how many of these coming from gitmo turn the same way? it's 25-30% of those released go back to the battlefield to kill more americans. dagen: colonel, good to see you. thank you so much, take care, be well. >> thank you, we'll do. dagen: time warner cable battle not stopping cbs viewers from watching the shows. they are pirating them.

"under the dome" viewers accounted for 11% of piracy, and the number is now 14.6% in the blackout areas for cbs according
11:51 am
to torrent freak. >> that's an outfit that tracks bit torrent down loads. it's basically the one-third increase in piracy of one particular cbs show, and in the markets, it was blacked out. in the fallout, cbs and time warner cable fired missiles at each other, not caring if they were clobbered in the cross fire, time warner cable told customers, hey, man, get cbs shows at cbs doicts, and cuts off all online show access, not just to the three markets, l.a., new york, dallas, fighting with time warner cable, but to all time warner markets in 12 million moments. when you do that, people go elsewhere through piracy. that shows that instead of hollywood and media companies fighting against piracy and wanting to sue them, offer us a better scheme, free shows, downloadable, ignore it, but
11:52 am
when you cut us off, we go to the pirated sites and find it. dagen: you drove the customers to pirated sites, and they don't come back. >> that is a dangerous. dagen: figure out how easy it is to steal content, keep stealing it, and more from other outlets. >> millions go there anyway, and the blackout prompted newcomers who never been to a pirated site before, and i'll be darned "under the dome" freely available online and illegally. dagen: it is stealing. it is stealing. i'm sorry. foot down about that. >> is it stealing if shows it free on the cbs site, and i go to another site and watch it, that's stealing? when you steal a candy bar, it's gone. when you look at a digital show, it's still there. you didn't take it away from anybody. i'm just saying. dagen: it's stealing. we're going to debate this at a later day because it's a great segment. >> that'd be good.

fans with fantasy sports, facebook posts, tweeting, realtime sports stats, wifi is an absolute must for a fan. the giants here have one-stop shop, really the first of the kind, a social media center, called the @cafe, broadcasting messages for everyone to see in the games. it's proamplet, first of the kind experience, and it makes sense because it's a short toss away from the silicon valley. >> twitter is six blocks from us, facebook down the road. we are, we believe we're in the hub of social media, and we believe when people watch the game, social media can be a part of it. >> the 49ers are building a brand new stadium south of here claiming they'll have the greatest stadium wifi network of all time when they open it next year. they plan to install as many as 1500 wireless access points in the stadium alone, that's double the number of that was installed last year at the super dome for the souper bowl, and quadruple the number where the patriots
11:55 am
play. team owners say it's about the fan's experiences, but others say it's about making sure you fill seats. >> the leagues and the teams and all of the entities have to give a reason for the people to come to the stadium; otherwise, there's an 80,000-seat arena empty playing to a studio show. >> you know, it's about money. very clearly, here in san diego, the cafe is sponsored by jive and peace coffee. they make ad money, and the fans are happy it's taking place, and you want to make sure with the hd home experience, they want to come to the stadium and share moments to everybody else. there really is a wide spectrum here business-wise keeping fans connected. dagen: the worst connection, the worst cell phone service 1 at nascar races. it's bizarre, impossible. >> i will tell you dodger stadium, also, they are trying to upgrade it there because it

12:04 pm
artificial stimulus or what the fed may or may not do with quantitative easing but this is the environment where you focus on individual companies and we will probably see some volatility associated with the worries and jitters around the end of that fed program but we would use that volatility as an opportunity to focus on individual stocks election. dennis: you didn't answer my question. do you think the news we are seeing is real or artificial because it loses money? >> i think it is. i think the fact that the loose money, quantitative easing occurring in the program, an overall positive, long-term for the health of the economy and our research team spends time talking to corporate management teams a lot of public companies, we made over 2,000 contacts over the past two months.
12:05 pm

12:06 pm
dennis: any hint of bad news instantly, whereas good news takes longer to digest and change our thinking. given the economy's might be better than investors realize where would you be putting money? >> we would be putting money to work, individual companies, this is the environment where active portfolio management is going to pay off. i don't think you can blindly invest in equities a year or two ago, and returns but the important thing to consider is we had five consecutive years of money out of u.s. equities and six months where money is starting to come back into equity funds. we are still in the early inning of money fleabag into equities away from the bond market. dennis: the dow went from red to green and it is up the bit less

12:44 pm
of the sun, and the reason you care about it, we are inside the magnetic field, causes auroras and power surges. and communications satellites, and sometimes we feel that more than others and one of the strong times. dennis: what does it mean for forecasting? you are doing forecasting and what does that mean for businesses that rely on weather forecasting. >> the immediate flick of the sun, the fact that it is flipping means the solar cycle is just about over. the chart that is dan, and going into the tank, and there are a lot of studies that say the next solar cycle is going to be down next to nothing, very little since connectivity and that has implications as far as the weather goes in testing this whole theory that the sun,
12:45 pm
oceans and as dusk -- the testing events, we have 200 years with high sunspot activity. in the shorter term lot of times when you have low geomagnetic field you get a lot of blocking a over the north pole and that implies a cold winter and we are looking for pretty cold winter in the united states. that is something we have seen before. in the longer-term it may mean the next sunspot cycle is in a tank. dennis: link this to the global warming argument. is this a function or cause of war contradiction to the fears we are eating the too much? >> what we believe a lot of us believe that the sun, the oceans and stochastic events, volcanoes are the main overall climate drivers and that co2 is boxed in and and do very little if not anything at all against the entire climate. we are getting, you got to
12:46 pm
understand was the switch in the ocean cycles and solar cycles we're getting our tests now i don't know why these folks on the ceo to side of the arguments are treated this test coming up we will see of the 20 or 30 years, leveling off, starting down since the pacific cold and people believe it will be mighty chile by the year 2013 after this next sunspot cycle of it goes into the tank like that. this is a fascinating thing for science overall. dennis: got anything on this? >> i want to respond to that. if you look at the very long range record, historically lower levels of solar activity are associated with lower temperatures. solar activity has been trending downward over the past 50 years so you would expect from the sun the temperatures would be trending downward the last 50 years. if there has been a warming is despite the sun, not because of the sun. >> oceanic cycles, you have the fact the we do not have
12:47 pm
satellite measurements, 1978 won't get away with that because what has happened is we had the hottest decade ever in the 1930s, 40s 50s similar to the period we went through in the pacific and atlantic, my point to you is we can objectively measure it now and i won't let you get away with that. it has been warm but you have 200 years of sunspot activity compared to the victorian era where the sun spots were in the tank. we are going to see who is going to win this. dennis: one last crack and we got to go. >> we have good -- back over a thousand years, longer than that so you can look at tree ring records and obviously these are not perfect records but all these things get fed into the climate models. it is true you have -- you cannot look at climate day to yea or year to year but decade to decade and century to century
