Monday Meltdown: Earth Hour Special

This week’s Monday Meltdown will be the last until May, but it’s a bumper look at last weekend’s Earth Hour news.

Chez Bayonet was lit up like a Christmas tree, much to the annoyance of the Prius driving hippies down the street.  Heh.

Oh, and there is a hottie, just because.

Earth Hour Special

First, the hard and very inconvenient truth, Earth Hour does nothing to reduce carbon emissions:

Even if power stations are turned off, the upsurge in turning the lights back on one hour later will require power stations that can fire up quickly like oil and coal.  Energy experts said it could therefore result in an increase in carbon emissions “rendering all good intentions useless at a flick of a switch”But WWF said the campaign was about raising awareness and saving energy in the long term, rather than a short-term fix.

So the WWF is willing to increase emissions in the name of marketing.  Does the WWF really think that there is a single person on this planet not aware of the global warming hoax, or is it that they don’t like that people aren’t buying the hype?  If you care, the WWF UK defends the PR stunt here, while the WWF in Australia mixed its messages rather badly.

Even Microsoft got into the action and darkened Bing.  They admitted it wouldn’t actually benefit emissions or anything, but then Earth Hour is all about appearances, not pesky facts.

The mainstream media loves Earth Hour because it’s a visual event and nothing gets readers hot like pictures of landmark buildings in the dark, or something:

now you see it...

The Sydney Morning Herald gushed over Earth Hour, ABC (America) resident warmist Sam Champion hyped the event and media in general went gaga for an hour in the dark.

Some papers wondered about what to do in the dark, which tells you everything wrong with hippies and lefties right there.  Shadow puppets? Is that a new euphemism for what red-blooded adults do in the dark?  I thought not.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen plugged for the event, it’s possible that Gisele even grounded her private jet for an hour.  Maybe.

So, what good, if any, did Earth Hour do?  Not much in Kallyvornya, or the UK, or Australia, or Canada where Edmonton failed to reduce consumption outside the range of regular usage variability:

Epcor says it can’t confidently attribute the 3 per cent drop in power to Earth Hour because it is normal to see a variation of plus or minus 10 per cent when comparing weeks, if you factor in weather and number of daylight hours.

There are some places in the world that don’t care for the WWF’s posturing, like Saudi Arabia for instance, but don’t expect to hear criticism of the oil rich ‘splodey folk, because lefties are terrible cowards about upsetting the wrong sort of people.

The most success was where it always is, in ‘lil Kim’s Norkland:

so ronery...

There was evidence of falling support for Earth Hour, even the vulnerable hippies in New Zealand could barely raise themselves off the couch to turn off the lights.

The WWF in Canada tried to spin the disappointing results, but Tom caught them in the act. Carbon Sense Coalition challenges the hippies to reboot Earth Hour on the shortest, coldest night of the year and do it outside:

The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said that all supporters of alternative energy should spend just one night in the cold and the dark, emitting no carbon dioxide from coal, oil, gas, petrol or diesel for lights, TV, hot coffee, barbecues or cars. This will be good practice for the blackouts and shortages to come if Penny Wong’s rationing of carbon products and carbon energy is attempted.

“Winter nights are usually still and cold, so the candles crew can experience what it was like depending on alternate energy in the recent snowstorms in the Northern Hemisphere when wind turbines froze and solar panels were covered in snow. The back-to-nature brigade can also try living without iron roofs and concrete walls, both of which require coal and emit carbon dioxide during their production.

“To hold a candles-and-champagne party indoors, on the mildest night of the year, for just one hour, shows that the whole thing is green tokenism. Moreover both candles and champagne emit carbon dioxide. Let the true believers try the real thing in one of the extreme seasons so they can appreciate the great benefits we take for granted when using all of our carbon fuels and foods.

Amen to that.

Warmists never see the unintended consequences of their actions, Earth Hour 2009 launched the full fury of Donna Laframboise, and after her work on Climategate you can bet the hippies would like that genie back in the jar.

We’ll wrap the Earth Hour Special with a nod to the enlightened ones that turned it all on for the anti-protest, a gesture which drove lefties nuts enough to wish counter-protestors dead:

This cycle of outrage has got to stop. They’re only doing this because they know it pisses other people off. I mean, it’s the same thing, every year now.  You have to laugh at them or ignore them, not yell at them and give them extra publicity.

…Or round ’em up and gas them and use their corpses for biofuel.

Nice tolerant hippies.  Can we expect lefty politicos to denounce that kind of violent threat?  Thought not.

Oh, I promised you a hottie, and I mentioned Gisele Bundchen, so…

Earth Hour is good for some things...

Monday Meltdown: March 22nd 2010

Here is your Monday recap of things that happened while you weren’t looking that you will pretend to read while you scroll down just to get to the hottie.  You’re so shallow.

Global Warming Causes Everything

Sandstorms in China are blamed on a global warming ‘enviromental meltdown‘ says Peter Foster, a ‘journalist’:

The dust blowing in from the western deserts of Xinjiang is the product of over-grazing, deforestation and urban sprawl which, despite the efforts of the Chinese government to invest and regulate, continues to get worse. Whether or not you believe climate change to be the result of human causes, the simple truth is that countries like China are now experiencing the direct, physical consequences of increasingly unstable weather patterns.

Foster cites three good reasons why the sandstorms are bad, then blames global warming anyway.  I’m cranky this morning, so let’s just call Foster a tool and move on.

Global warming causes government inefficiency.  No, really:

…climate change has begun to affect the ability of government agencies to fulfill their missions, reports the White House Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force.

Green Spin Cycles

In Montana, a judge has forced the state to suspend drilling licences until the effects of the developments on the ‘climate’ can be assessed.  Utah however is ready to take all the projects Montana doesn’t want and start its own oilsands operations.  That popping noise you hear is hippie heads exploding.

The EPA is going to need more lawyers to defend its ‘CO2 is a dangerous pollutant’ decision.

The only reason that fewer Americans believe global warming is a threat is because they don’t know enough about it.  If that is true, then the global warmers like Al Gore, and the mainstream media must be the worst hoax promoters in the history of hoax promoting.

Grist tries to spin the inconvenient poll results and manages to tie itself in knots as it tries to blame the poll designers, bloggers, the public and scientists when all the poll shows is that people aren’t as dumb as grist would like them to be.

Island Life

Louise Gray, the Telegraph’s resident global warming cheerleader writes:

Every car on the road will need to be electric and there will be solar panels on every home, 10,000 wind turbines onshore and 40 new nuclear power stations if the Government is to stand a chance of meeting strict climate change targets

Unfortunately for the UK, wind farms don’t work.  All that money, all those spoiled views and all those dead birds later, the obvious conclusion is that wind was a green pipe dream:

The first detailed study of Britain’s onshore wind farms suggests some treasured landscapes may have been blighted for only small gains in green energy.  The analysis reveals that more than 20 wind farms produce less than a fifth of their potential maximum power output. One site, at Blyth Harbour in Northumberland, is thought to be the worst in Britain, operating at just 7.9% of its maximum capacity. Another at Chelker reservoir in North Yorkshire operates at only 8.7% of capacity.

There is hope, one old wind farm may soon be demolished to make way for a new nuclear power station.

The Windsors

Jolly Prince Chuckles supports green initiatives and another hippie favorite, alternative medicine.  Since both of his hippie hobby horses have recently been discredited, poor Chuck looks even more foolish than normal.  His charity is under investigation for pursuing a vendetta against a scientist who criticized Chuck for his homeopathic nonsense. So, business as usual for the greens, threaten those who would expose you.

The British government, apparently anxious to save the Clown Prince from himself might soon ban reporting about his interventions.

It’s the Money, Stupid

The WWF, the ‘environmental’ agency that likes to use 9/11 imagery to frighten people into donating cash, stands to make $60 billion from an investment in rainforests, but with no positive effect whatsoever on the environment:

…a hidden agenda of the scheme to preserve this chunk of the forest was to allow the WWF and its partners to share the selling of carbon credits worth $60 billion, to enable firms in the industrial world to carry on emitting CO2 just as before, more than a few eyebrows might be raised. The idea is that credits representing the CO2 locked into this particular area of jungle – so remote that it is not under any threat – should be sold on the international market, allowing thousands of companies in the developed world to buy their way out of having to restrict their carbon emissions. The net effect would simply be to make the WWF and its partners much richer while making no contribution to lowering overall CO2 emissions.

Delingpole has more.

Monday Hottie

Last week I challenged the Interwebs to find out who she was, only to be rewarded with epic snark.  I applaud your Fail, but we’re going to keep doing this until either an answer is found or I run out of pictures of corset chick.  Which will be next week, so hurry up.

Thanks for reading.

Monday Meltdown: March 15th 2010

Coke-heads are killing the planet, the Royals don’t talk to each other and NASA’s data is junk.  All this and a hottie to brighten up your Monday.

Hippies Behaving Badly

Odious leftie Bill Maher took on the topic of global warming, and was shown to be completely ignorant of the facts.  If Maher was twice as smart as he thinks he is, he’d still be full retard.

DeSmogBlog blames Big Oil for the increase in public skepticism.  That argument used to work well, until the lid was blown off Big Green and the megabucks behind the scaremongers.

Aussie alarmists accuse skeptics of a ‘smokescreen’ of denial, then quickly moves to the old ‘debate is over’ tactic:

Dr Clark said the CSIRO had been observing the impacts of human-induced climate change for many years and had moved on from debate about it happening to planning for the changes to come.

Island Life and Global Warming

In the UK, The Duke of Edinburgh has revoked an invitation to leading skeptic Ian Plimer because the Royal family cannot appear political:

…the debate around climate change has recently become highly politically charged, both globally and especially in your home
country.  Equally, as I am sure you are aware, members of the Royal Family need to be scrupulous in avoiding any appearance of advocating or supporting a particular political stance. The RSA’s charitable status also requires us to maintain absolute political independence in our programme of events and research events.

The Duke needs to have a word with his number one son, Jolly Prince Chuckles, who clearly didn’t get the memo about being apolitical.  Unless Royals are only supposed to be impartial when the climate hoax is being promoted.  Any mention of Charles gives me an excuse to recycle this joke:

Camilla's pet llama

Clever councillors in Durham County were to benefit from a weather-alert text message system, until someone pointed out that looking out a window was as effective, and cheaper.  Curses, there goes another green job.

Say Goodbye to Hollywood

Shiny pretty people in Hollywood are reeling from runaway Prius stories and revelations that global warming might not be happening, yet some hardy stalwarts were still hanging on to the hoax.  But there is no way that the Hollywood set can avoid this uncomfortable headline, cocaine use makes global warming worse.  Offset that, Leo.

Climategate

The next IPCC walk back is of the claim that global warming kills rainforests.  It doesn’t. Did they get anything right?

The IPCC is to be investigated, by the UN and the head of the IPCC.  That sort of fixing is probably not a great idea when the world is watching, what chance is there that Raj ‘Kiss Me’ Pachauri will call for his own head?

Climategate revealed that the data and scientists at the UEA CRU were less than perfect, and the repercussions are so serious because the CRU data set was the foundation for three of the four global datasets used for ALL climate modeling.  NASA admitted that its own GISS data was inferior to CRU:

There are only four climate datasets available. All global warming study, such as the reports from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), must be based on these four.  They are: the NASA GISS dataset, the NCDC GHCN dataset, the CRU dataset, and the Japan Meteorological Agency dataset.  Following Climategate, when it became known that raw temperature data for CRU’s “HADCRU3? climate dataset had been destroyed, Phil Jones, CRU’s former director, said the data loss was not important — because there were other independent climate datasets available.  But the emails reveal that at least three of the four datasets were not independent, that NASA GISS was not considered to be accurate, and that these quality issues were known to both top climate scientists and to the mainstream press.

GIGO, anyone?

The Wall Street Journal called Climategate an academic disaster waiting to happen.

Skeptic website Climategate.com is for sale, the owner having exhausted his poor self in just 4 months.  There will be dead links in archived posts thanks to the lack of fortitude and stamina of the profiteering tool behind Climategate.com, which I will try to fix as I discover them.

Canadian Bacon

Some climate ‘scientists’ in Canada feel that the federal government has ‘muzzled’ their ability to appear in the media to raise their profiles and attract lots of funding spread the message about global warming.  The revelation came from activist group Climate Action Network Canada, which tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the manufactured scandal.  It might be that the media rules imposed on Canadian scientists saved them from the kind of exposure and embarrassment now being experienced by Phil Jones, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen et al.

A Canadian nanotech scientist has been busted for misuse of funding.  Dude, everyone knows that you have to be a climate scientist to get away with that sort of thing.

Greens Kill Birds

Wind farms are economically foolish, energy redundant and deadly to birds.

The world’s largest and most carefully monitored wind farm, Altamont Pass in California, is estimated to have killed between 2,000 and 3,000 golden eagles alone in the past 20 years. Since turbines were erected on the isle of Smola, off Norway, home to an important population of white-tailed sea eagles, destruction is so great that last year only one chick survived. Thanks to wind farms in Tasmania, a unique sub-species of wedge-tailed eagles faces extinction.

Imagine an oil firm was responsible for thousands of bird deaths per year, do you think that might get some media?

Monday Hottie

It’s Monday and it’s raining, so let’s have a little sunshine:

Monday Meltdown: March 8th 2010

Forecasters who won’t forecast and a sixties icon of getting it all wrong are just what we need on a Monday morning.

The Met Office.

You might think I’ve been picking on the Met. Office recently, and you’d be right.  But they make it so easy.

First, at the very moment when their credibility is at an all time low and the general populace is starting to think that all that doomsaying was a crock, the geniuses at the Met claim to have found the AGW fingerprint.   They say that it proves man is to blame for pleasant weather, to a 95% certainty.

If you’re wondering what new science they did to reach this near-certainty… they didn’t do any.  They re-reviewed over 100 peer-reviewed papers and rehashed the results for a supportive press release to stem the tide of skepticism.  For good measure, they claim the discredited IPCC with underestimating mans impact:

The panel assessed more than 100 recent peer-reviewed scientific papers and found that the overwhelming majority had detected clear evidence of human influence on the climate.  Peter Stott, head of climate monitoring and attribution at the Met Office, who led the study, said: “This wealth of evidence we have now shows there is an increasingly remote possibility of climate change being dominated by natural factors rather than human factors.”

The comedy gold comes from a second press release: ‘Met Office seasonal forecasts to be scrapped

…[The Met Office] was berated for not foreseeing that the UK would suffer this cold winter or the last three wet summers in its seasonal forecasts.  The forecasts, four times a year, will be replaced by monthly predictions.  The Met Office said it decided to change its forecasting approach after carrying out customer research.  Explaining its decision, the Met Office released a statement which said: “By their nature, forecasts become less accurate the further out we look.

They said it, not me.

World’s Worst Scientist Arrives to Save World’s Worst Science

Paul Ehrlich, the man behind ‘The Population Bomb’ and many more predictions of doom that failed to materialize, has scurried to the aid of the global warming ‘scientists’ who punk’d science with their junk data and ideological agendas:

“Most of our colleagues don’t seem to grasp that we’re not in a gentlepersons’ debate, we’re in a street fight against well-funded, merciless enemies who play by entirely different rules,”

And by ‘entirely different rules’ Ehrlich means the ‘merciless enemies’ are demanding real results from real science from shared data that can be tested and verified indepently.  Sort of like oh, the scientific method.  Evil bastards.

You can tell a lot about people from the company they keep, and the people rushing to defend thoroughly discredited climate science have revealed far more about themselves than they may have intended:

“This was an outpouring of angry frustration on the part of normally very staid scientists who said, ‘God, can’t we have a civil dialogue here and discuss the truth without spinning everything,'” said Stephen H. Schneider, a Stanford professor and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment who was part of the e-mail discussion but wants the scientists to take a slightly different approach.

Jones Gets Sweded, IPCC gets Soviet Boot to Groin

Phil ‘The Decline’ Jones told a parliamentary committee that one reason he ‘couldn’t’ share data for FOIA requests was restrictions from foreign partners.  Inconveniently for Jones, the Swedes say he lied.  Keep digging, Phil, there’s a cell warming for you.

In Soviet Russia, dirty laundry airs you:

..

Old and Busted: Al Gore

The Guardian wants a fresh prophet to replace the old, busted prophet.  Al Gore’s stock is so low that there is now open talk about needing a new spiritual leader:

…the plain fact is that we surely need a prophet, not yet another committee. We need one passionate, persuasive scientist who can connect and convince – not because he preaches apocalypse in gory detail, but in simple, overwhelming terms. We need to be taught to believe by a true believer in a world where belief is the fatal, missing ingredient.

What is it with lefties and hippies that make them so averse to doing a little thinking for themselves?

Ginger, Explained

Scots and Irish people have red hair in disproportionate numbers.  It’s the weather, apparently, so maybe global warming can rid us of the ginger menace:

Monday Meltdown: March 1st 2010

It’s new month, Spring is almost here, the Winter Olympics are over and the global warming hoax is still falling apart faster than the average Canuck’s composure after the big win last night.

Here’s your meltdown of recent AGW developments, because Monday morning can wait for a while.

The Met. Office

They can’t forecast anything useful worth a damn, but were still awarded £12 million in bonuses.  The Met has an annual budget of £82 million, but that together with the super-smart sciencytists were still embarrassed by a self confessed computer geek who found that they do math about as well as they forecast:

”What appears to have happened is that the Met Office calculated the averages and then got more data from Oceania and then failed to update the averages,” Dr Graham-Cumming said.  ”The site with the greatest error was Napier Nelson Park, in New Zealand, where the average temperature was off by more than 1 degree. That’s a lot given that the total warming seen since the 1970s is less than 1 degree and for this location the Met Office had it more than 1 degree hotter than it is. Had the error I’d found been more widespread, it could have had a real effect on the overall picture.”

Oops.

‘Scientists’ Helping Authorities with their Enquiries

Phil ‘The Decline’ Jones appears before a Parliamentary Committee today to answer questions about his decisions to ignore legal FOIA requests and the many shameful emails revealed by Climategate.  The University of East Anglia is already in trouble for trying to hide the inconvenient truth from MP’s:

The University of East Anglia wrote this week to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee giving the impression that it had been exonerated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). However, the university failed to disclose that the ICO had expressed serious concerns that one of its professors had proposed deleting information to avoid complying with the Freedom of Information Act.

Raj ‘Kiss Me‘ Pachauri is also facing an inquiry, at which it is possible that the former railway engineer and current erotica writer might be asked to fall on his, um, sword for the good of the IPCC.  It’s possible that Pachauri sees the writing on the wall, he has already canceled a US speaking tour.

[ad#insert-large]

Alarmist’s Still Party Like It’s 2009

Some folks haven’t got the memo that Climategate was a game changer and that just saying scarey stuff isn’t the guaranteed path to riches and fame it was before last November.

A body called the Government Office for Science released a comical vision of global catastrophe wrought by slightly more pleasant weather:

Heathrow would be converted into a giant reservoir by 2035, there could be severe restrictions on flying and driving and farmers would be forced to sell their land to giant agricultural businesses. Greenhouse gas emissions would be controlled by carbon rationing for individuals, which would lead to “significant shifts in lifestyle as everyone tries to stay within budget”.

And renowned scaremonger Gavin Schmidt argues that man’s CO2 output ‘dwarfs’ the Sun’s ability to affect global temperature.  Gavin works for NASA, so it’s odd that he wouldn’t know that the Sun is a freakin’ star.

A barmy Aussie says that January was the hottest ever.  No, really, he said it out loud.  Here’s the proof, there are no daffodils.  Oh, wait.

One Irish IPCC guy hasn’t actually read the error-riddled AR4 report, but skimmed it enough to tell us we have to change our lives.

Talking Sense

The Institute of Physics has condemned CRU’s global warming ‘science’.  And they were blunt about it:

The [Climategate] e-mails reveal doubts as to the reliability of some of the reconstructions and raise questions as to the way in which they have been represented; for example, the apparent suppression, in graphics widely used by the IPCC, of proxy results for recent decades that do not agree with contemporary instrumental temperature measurements.

Ouch.

The EPA is facing legal heat for its silly ruling that CO2 is a dangerous pollutant:

Peabody believes that EPA ignored its obligation to render sound judgment and conduct a rigorous review of science, instead relying almost exclusively on the work of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as a major basis for its recent endangerment finding.

The IPCC is an international body whose work is not subject to U.S. data quality standards or consistently peer reviewed.

Double Ouch.

Short selling global warming, a clever comparison of the collapse of Enron and the global warming hoax.

The World Health Organization is recommending hospitals go green, and are handily skewered for their efforts:

So, when we install these inefficient and intermittent forms of energy production, who is gonna be first to volunteer to be hooked up to the solar powered ventilators? Or the wind powered dialysis unit?

Evil Hippies

Al Gore and his friends that push the fear of global warming have blood on their hands.  COP15 opened with this video, which probably doesn’t seem like such a good idea now that gullible folks have actually begun to kill each other over an irrational fear of the weather.

..

My thoughts are with the injured child and the dead parents that couldn’t see through the propaganda and lies.  My ire is aimed squarely on those that pushed a family to destruction and I know no mercy.

Monday Meltdown: Feb. 22nd 2010

Grab a coffee, there’s a lot to see this Monday, including handy tips on surviving the zombie hippie apocalypse.  Because you’re worth it.

The Monday Movie

Part one below, the rest over at Climate Realists.

..

iPuritans

They’re back, those anti-tech greens that are deathly afraid that someone, somewhere is having fun with electronics.  Green activists demand that Facebook should use only green power, but not apparently enough to delete their pages off the servers of the leading distributor of unimportant drivel.  For the last time, Facebookers, I don’t care that your day is awesome.

there's an app for that, too

Other iPuritans are concerned with our old phones and where they go to die.  The topic of waste electronics is an awkward one for hippies on several fronts.  First, millions of hipsters tossed perfectly functional Nokia’s in a frenzy of iPhone desire and are among the guilty for creating  broke-tech mountain.  Second, one of the concerns is ‘toxic waste’, but it’s hard for hippies to be credible on toxic waste after insisting that we all install mercury toxic bombs in our homes.

[ad#insert-large]

Alarmists Rise Again

Oh, this is great.  After the AGW hoax was exposed as junk science by Climategate, hippies have decided it’s time to fight back:

Greenpeace, the Wilderness Society, World Wide Fund for Nature, Australian Conservation Foundation and Friends of the Earth, have acknowledged that the public mood has shifted following the collapse of the Copenhagen climate talks and blows to the credibility of the IPCC. James Norman, of the Australian Conservation Foundation, said the strategy of ignoring climate change sceptics had not worked as it had been taken as confirmation of their claims. ”The stakes are too high to remain silent or disorganised in the face of this systemic disinformation campaign,’

We should have known that when the zombie apocalypse arrived, it would be hippies leading the way.  The odd thing is who the hippies want to fight.  Has anyone ever heard of these guys:

[Norman] said the global campaign was being funded by anti-climate-change think tanks such as the American Atlas Economic Research Foundation and the British International Policy Network

Anyone?

Scaremongers have a new video teaching them how to carefully debate the issues of doubt in climate science, ensuring that each skeptic point is rebutted and backed up with reliable science.  Oh screw that, let’s just tear the denier’s hearts out.  See, hippie zombies are coming, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

..

Of course they would have to fight back, after all, they have so much riding on the issue:

There is too much at stake politically, too many careers and reputations on the line, too much grant money for researchers and donations for environmental groups, too much green-tax revenue for governments, too much prestige in academic circles at risk for those who have asserted for more than a decade that man is causing damaging climate change to slink away in defeat.

Monday Meltdown: Feb. 15th 2010

How much can happen in the global warming world over one weekend?  You’ll be surprised…

Jolly Prince Chuckles

Prince Charles, renowned climate expert and object lesson in the perils of inbreeding, is getting heat from environmentals for two planned projects.  In Cornwall, Clown Prince Charlie wants to bulldoze ancient hedgerows for a new ‘eco-village’ development; and near Bath the Prince wants to develop a green belt area for new housing. Some of his soon-to-be-ex-hippie-friends are not amused:

Curate the Rev Catherine Sourbut said: ‘Are the Duchy’s principles really so easily swayed by the huge pay-off they stand to receive? What of the Prince’s public agenda on environmental concerns?’

You know what they say, Curate; ‘pass the Duchy on the left hand side‘.

A Royal basket case

In both cases of the Prince wrecking the land for development, His Royal personage will net millions of pounds for his own pocket, but why would the Prince need all that money?  Oh, wait, his other green business lost how much?

When Media Attacks

The UK press can smell warmist blood in the water and is in the midst of a feeding frenzy that few alarmists will withstand.  While we wait for the somnolent North American media to wake up, let’s enjoy the British show from afar.

The Daily Mail revealed that CRU’s Phil Jones says there has been no warming since 1995.

The Sunday Times, ‘World May Not Be Warming‘:

Terry Mills, professor of applied statistics and econometrics at Loughborough University, looked at the same data as the IPCC. He found that the warming trend it reported over the past 30 years or so was just as likely to be due to random fluctuations as to the impacts of greenhouse gases. Mills’s findings are to be published in Climatic Change, an environmental journal.

The BBC (!), ‘Extraordinary developments in Climategate affair‘:

…in a separate and rather over-looked announcement yesterday, UEA said that it is now going to reassess the science involved, science at the heart of the whole climate change debate.

The Daily Telegraph, ‘UN Global Warming Data Skewed‘ (featuring Anthony Watt’s SurfaceStations work):

The IPCC used data from the weather stations to back up claims that greenhouse gases had already caused a 0.7C rise in temperature, and gave warnings that further warming of up to 6C by 2100 could have devastating effects on civilisation and wildlife.   Rising temperatures around the stations, which have been in use for 150 years, could also have been caused by urbanisation, the study claimed. One weather station at Manchester airport, which was built when the surrounding land was mainly fields, is now surrounded by heated buildings.;

The Scotsman helps bring down another member of the Muir Enquiry team, ‘Senior Scots scientist in climate probe row‘:

The Scotsman can reveal that only a few months ago, Prof Boulton, from the University of Edinburgh, was among a number of scientists who, in the wake of the climategate scandal, signed a petition to show their confidence that global warming was caused by humans. And for at least five years, he has made clear his strong views on global warming. He has given interviews and written articles – including in The Scotsman – that have spelled out his firmly held beliefs.

It’s almost as if UK papers believe asking questions and reporting facts is back in vogue.  Now what about US media?

Scientific method, we don’t need no stinking scientific method, the science is settled, see:

“Despite the drumbeat informing the public that science strongly supports the climate-change thesis, the hacked data paint a picture of a community of experts afraid of scrutiny, willing to use underhanded methods to silence doubters, and content to eliminate evidence that might undermine both their theories and their funding.”

Ouch.

Sad Scientist

Phil ‘Hide the Decline’ Jones has emerged from self-imposed exile to bare his soul to the press.  Jones says the fallout from Climategate drove him to thoughts of suicide.   Climate skeptic John L. Daly was unavailable for comment about Jones’ hurt feelings.

Jones was the big climate bully on campus, and he needs to go to jail for a long me to be made an example of.  Don’t worry about him taking the coward’s way out, Jones doesn’t have the stones for it.  He’s looking for sympathy, but like Delingpole, I’m all out.

Monday Pom-Poms

Bad Journalism

Part Un:  The BBC has £8 billion reasons why they need the global warming hoax to run and run:

Concerns are growing that BBC journalists and their bosses regard disputed scientific theory that climate change is caused by mankind as “mainstream” while huge sums of  employees’ money is invested in companies whose success depends on the theory being widely accepted.

Part Deux:  Benny Peiser agreed to debate Observer environment correspondent Robin McKie, and opened the debate with a rational, fact focused presentation.  McKie resorted to ugly name calling in the very first sentence of his response.  Hippies have nothing left but vitriol for those that exposed them as dupes and frauds.

More IPCC Errors

The much-vaunted UN IPCC AR4 report looks like it has more problems.  AfricaGate and DryGate are just the latest two embarrassing errors uncovered by curious skeptics.

Phil ‘Hide the Decline’ Jones has emerged from self-imposed exile to bare his soul to the press.  Jones says the fallout from Climategate drove him to thoughts of suicide.   Climate skeptic John L. Daly was unavailable for comment about Jones’ hurt feelings.

Jones was the big climate bully on campus, and he needs to go to jail for a long me to be made an example of.  Don’t worry about him taking the coward’s way out, Jones doesn’t have the stones for it.  He’s looking for sympathy, but like Delingpole, I’m all out.

Monday Pom-Poms

Bad Journalism

Part Un:  The BBC has £8 billion reasons why they need the global warming hoax to run and run:

Concerns are growing that BBC journalists and their bosses regard disputed scientific theory that climate change is caused by mankind as “mainstream” while huge sums of  employees’ money is invested in companies whose success depends on the theory being widely accepted.

Part Deux:  Benny Peiser agreed to debate Observer environment correspondent Robin McKie, and opened the debate with a rational, fact focused presentation.  McKie resorted to ugly name calling in the very first sentence of his response.  Hippies have nothing left but vitriol for those that exposed them as dupes and frauds.

More IPCC Errors

The much-vaunted UN IPCC AR4 report looks like it has more problems.  AfricaGate and DryGate are just the latest two embarrassing errors uncovered by curious skeptics.

Janke thinks the errors aren’t a bug, they’re a feature.
