Surely You’re Not Serious
More Lies Revealed in “Settled” Climate Debate

The Sky Is NOT Falling A scientist whose famous drowning polar bears research armed global warming nut cases with their strongest, bleeding-heart, emotional and illogical claim has been placed on leave while the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement investigates possible “scientific misconduct.” (Full story)

Meanwhile, NASA climate data shows that over the last 10 years or so, the dreaded carbon dioxide supposedly killing our atmosphere has had very little green house effect. “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.” (Full story)

So the polar bears are not drowning and carbon dioxide is not causing green-house-effect global warming*. But, I’m sure you won’t hear about any of this on CNN.

What will the next hysteria-inducing plot be? You know they’re probably already working on it. I expect it will hit the news sometime in the next five years or so. Check out this previous post and read the secret recipe so you can spot the next one.

*Carbon dioxide is not a green house gas. Nor is the freon that used to cheaply run your air conditioner. Nor are the CFCs that used to cheaply pressurize your hair spray and dry clean your clothes. All these have now been regulated or flat out outlawed by the eco-nuts and replace with more expensive, less effective options. But, of course, we know exactly why, don’t we?

The Sky *IS* Falling…

It’s falling squarely on the head of the Global Warming Sham with a satisfying “squish” sound.

This Wall Street Journal opinion piece outlines the public deflowering of the vaunted Un IPCC. We’ve talked about all that before (here and here), but what makes this one blog worthy is these two juicy tidbits near the end.

[Mr. Jones] has called into question other issues that the climate lobby has claimed are indisputable. [Mr. Jones] told the BBC that the world may well have been warmer during medieval times than it is now. This raises doubts about how much our current warming is man-made as opposed to merely another of the natural climate shifts that have taken place over the centuries. Mr. Jones also told the BBC there has been no “statistically significant” warming over the past 15 years, though he considers this to be temporary.

Oh, now he changes his tune. Too little too late, sir!

The “Mr. Jones” in question, is the totally disgraced Phil Jones, the most guilty member of the Climategate scandal that finally turned the tide of (at least some) media attention about the climate sham. Mr. Jones has now been forced out of his lofty research position and is now, one can only hope, living in a refrigerator box in some back ally preaching his global warming garbage to the ally cats.

How Many Nails Will It Take?

Me thinks not much. Global-eco-fear-mongering… err… global warming has now reached the bottom of the list of concerns for Americans.

And the crowns of the “scientists” who have so long held “consensus” on the issue are falling faster that I can post about them.

A recent report (admittedly reported by climate skeptics, so… you know… they must be wrong) showed that the Un, NASA, and NOAA have, for quite some time, been cherry picking their climate data by reducing the number of weather stations that feed into their databases, pulling data from more and more warm weather locations (like lower altitudes and further south).

As a follow up to to a previous post about junk science in a Un-scientific report

The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political pressure on world leaders.

You can read the rest of that article here. I added the emphasis on the Nobel Prize. Does anyone take the Nobel committee seriously anymore? I think they should rename it the “Pandering for Donations From Rich Liberals Racked With Guilt For Being So Rich Award.” That has a nice ring to it.

Another Nail

It seems like every day I see another nail added to the global warming coffin. This one was particularly good. Good enough to be blog-worthy.

The Un scientific panel for global warming proselytation, known as the IPCC, will very likely be forced to retract a warning that the Himalayas will be ice free by 2035.

The official Un report was based on a single scientific article published ten years ago which was, in turn, based on a single telephone interview with an Indian scientist who, in turn, based his information on an unpublished and unreviewed report, which, as it turns out, did not mention any specific date for the Himalayan glaciers to melt. That same Indian scientist now admits that the data from his interview was “speculation” and was not supported by any formal research.

Good job, Un. With this kind of rigorous scientific investigation, you’re doing the skeptics job for them. Keep up the good work!

Global Climate Change: The Sky Is NOT Falling

The Sky Is NOT Falling Ok folks. I’ve been hording up links for years and putting this off for far too long. Today, I read a story that broke the polar bear’s back. (Don’t worry. It’s linked below.)

Are you ready for the news flash? Here it is:

The global warming crisis is a lie!

There. Now, don’t you feel better? No? Ok. How about this:

The hole it the ozone layer is a lie!

Still not feeling all warm and fuzzy? Ok.

The acid rain crisis is a lie!

The end of fossil fuels is a lie!

The dangers of coal and nuclear energy is a lie!

The extinction of the whales is a lie!

The deforestation crisis is a lie!

The global over-population crisis is a lie!

Are you starting to see a pattern yet? Well. Let me spell it out for you, just to be sure.

All, yes each and every one, of the above manufactured, sky-is-falling catastrophes were created by, more or less, the same people, for, more or less, the same reason. There are people in this world who truly and religiously believe that mankind is a virus. That you and me and our TVs and our running water and our big fast-food-fed butts are enemies of their beloved Earth. These people really and truly believe that the only way to save their blessed planet is to reverse human productivity, progress, comfort, and happiness (and thus reduce human population).

You might think I’m exaggerating, but, sadly, I’m just scratching the surface. Now, I’m not going to go into all of the psychosis and human-hating logic. All I want to do in this post is expose their modus operandi.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The current eco-crisis of the day begins to lose favor when the supposed catastrophe doesn’t materialize, or the media starts to lose interest, or actual scientists manage to find their way into the main stream far enough to debunk the scare tactics.
  2. A new eco-crisis must be created and it must meet the following criteria:
    1. It must be tangible. It has to be something people can point to and/or touch and say, “See! The sky IS falling!” (ex. “Hurricane Katrina was awful! Darn that global warming!”)
    2. It must be something impossible (or at least very difficult) to disprove. (ex. “How can you say there is no such thing as acid rain. Prove it!”)
    3. It must be something so terrible that it would cause (were it true) human suffering on a massive scale. (ex. “If we cut down all the trees, there will be no more oxygen for your children to breath!”)
    4. The only possible solution to the crisis must involve curtailing, taxing, regulating, or in some other way decreasing human convenience. (ex. “The only way to save the world is for you to sell your big, safe, convenient SUV and buy a cardboard tissue box with wheels.”)
    5. As an added bonus, the crisis and it’s imaginary resolution should be profitable for the people who join the cause. This way, they’ll be well funded and/or carry political clout that can be spent on the next eco-crisis when this one peters out. (ex.**ALBERT FREAKING GORE**)
  3. Now, to get the word out. Conveniently, 90% of the Lame-Stream Media is populated by ex-Berkeley-hippies who thrive on sensationalizing suffering and making everyone who is happy feel guilty about it.
  4. After it’s had some time to soak in the nightly news… You know, a pseudo-scientific report here, bit of clever video editing there… It’s time for Mr. Smith to head to Washington. Thank goodness that politicians build their careers on public sentiment rather than facts.
  5. Now that this newly minted crisis is in the forefront and; through careful planning, back-door deals, and out-and-out fraud; the critics have been kept at bay (ex. “Denying global warming is on par with denying the Holocaust!“); it’s time to brain wash the children. Make sure that all the cartoons and kids shows are reinforcing our crisis. “Remember kids, your mommy’s SUV is polluting the sky and killing cuddly wuddly polar bears! We may have to cancel Christmas!
  6. At this point, just ride the wave, collect as much fame and money as you can before the crisis-de-jour begins to ebb.
  7. Rinse and repeat.

I want you to look this over carefully. I want you to really internalize it. Study it. Know it. Why? Because I am now certain that we are at the tipping point. In the next few years, global warming is going to peter out.

It’s very likely dead already…
“Climategate”
“Gore either lying or just terribly stupid”
And the final nail: “The Mini-Ice-Age has begun”

But this time, thanks to smart people like you and me, and thanks to this marvelous series of tubes, things might just go a little differently.

See, the global warming crisis set a new precedent and it wasn’t a good one for the Earth hugging human haters. This was the first post-internet crisis. For the first time in human history, everyone, millions upon millions of people, have access to the new main stream medium. Smart people with real data can now tell the world the truth. In the next decade, more people will get their information from right here on the web than from the talking heads on the nightly news. Finally, there will be no filtering, no spinning, no iron-fisted control of the facts.

Plus, for the first time, you’ll be able to link back to my posts about the folly of global warming as you, on your blog, tell your readers about the equal folly of whatever is coming next. Let’s just hope it’s more creative than global cooling. Cuz, seriously, how many times are they going to try that? (Hint: I’ve already posted about it here.)
