Welcome to the Halloween edition of the weekly round-up, wherein I will scare you with the awfulness of my puns as well as your usual doses of global warming alarmists, scaremongers and bogeymen.
I have a lot of linky goodness and a super-hot hottie, so let’s get to it.
Is Al Gore an extortionist? Only if by extortion you mean the attempt to gain money by the vague but disturbing issuance of threats. So yeah, he is.
Al Gore compares himself to Ghandi. Really. I had never heard of ‘supersize-me-Ghandi’, but I can’t know everything. Maybe he’s bizarro world Ghandi.
Another week, another ‘toon: Gored but not Forgotten
The profit speaks, about geothermal energy, and makes it sound boring.
Sing along now: M.I.C.K.E.Y. A.P.O.C.A.L.Y.P.S.E.
The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis is honoring Al with an award. I bet he’d prefer the headline to read ‘Civil Rights Museum to honor King Gore’.
Al has an inconvenient diet. I could argue that ‘diet’ is the wrong word in any context regarding ‘Big Al’, see above.
Global warming muppet Jim Hansen is a fanatic, and his efforts just resulted in even more activism.
Tom Nelson wonders why the oceans aren’t a foot higher.
I’m embarrassing, it says so right here.
Don’t ever call greenies intolerant totalitarian bullies. Even if they are.
Alicia Silverstone is pretty. She’s a sandwich or two short of a full picnic, but pretty.
Cate Blanchette, decent Elizabeth I but not a rocket scientist.
Climate smart (whatever that is) is just so, like, yesterday.
Global activists and erstwhile wrestling outfit the WWF in no way uses alarmist language:
planets” would be required to sustain current lifestyles within a
generation, the conservation group WWF said
Henry David Thoreau, climate scientist?
Why should we worry about global warming when the scaremongers can’t even keep the hoax timeline straight.
Andrew Bolt is a menace, and greens act more like brownshirts every week.
Holland is a strange and mystical place that was once saved from doom when a small boy poked a lesbian with his finger, or something. Now it is overwhelmed by scaremongers. In clogs. OK, so sue me, I made that clogs bit up.
Green is a new religion. Remember the days when it was just a color you should never wear with blue?
Did I mention that greens can be thugs and totalitarians? Did I?
Read this, but try not to let your head explode:
Green bullies at work, say it ain’t so. If you have one of these in your workplace, park your Hummer on top of their Prius, that’ll show ’em.
Green deceit? You betcha!
Eco terrorists profit from the Canadian government. Sink it.
The New Scientist prints a completely non-alarmist article: How Our Economy is Killing the Earth.
Icecaps melt in winter, not happening.
The Methane time bomb, also not happening.
Global warming causes bridges to collapse? Nope.
Global warming kills frogs. Wrong.
Hybrid buses are great, right up to the point when they’re not great and need to be replaced.
If methane isn’t scary enough, try Nitrogen Trifluoride
Solar panels are a favorite of the green alternate energy brigade. Too bad the manufacturing of solar panels kills the planet then.
When its too cold to protest global warming.
Carbon offsets, you know they (don’t) make sense.
Global warming may desalinate the oceans. Wrong.
Dr. Tim Ball on politicized science, this week’s must-read.
Scientists are 400% wrong about the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, oops.
China demands that the wealthy west pay for climate change measures. Or they’ll put melamine in our milk and eggs. Oh, wait.
Ford provides eco-friendly consumers with an ivy league dashboard.
Say hello, wave goodbye.
Another Oregon story, what’s going on out West?
Offset your NY commute. Because everyone has more money than sense.
Will Barack Obama outlaw tree food?
Oregon governor will catch flak from skeptics. That’s a headline I could stand to see more of.
Carbon taxes for people who hate carbon taxes?
Residents of WASP-12b regret that they didn’t listen to their profit prophet Alg-ore.
At last, the source of silly global warming scientists is revealed.
Magnetic death star fragments found. No real AGW angle, but I couldn’t resist an entry with ‘magnetic death star’ in it. You understand, right?
Pave paradise, save the planet.Don’t it always seem to go…
Nuclear Power, a reality check
Helmer on Gore, Al loses.
What could scare a green more than a nuclear reactor? A flying nuclear reactor, that’s what.
Bjorn Lomborg, currently enjoying success with the highest grossing UK movie in history, talks climate sense. Is there anything he can’t do?
Record sea ice in October 2008.
Remember twenty years ago when CFC’s were the bad voodoo of modern life and 80’s teens all over the world panicked about how to make their hair stand up without aerosols? Yeah, cosmic rays cause ozone layer holes, not spray cans.
It’s Halloween, and nothing says horror like a vampy-vampire. So this week’s hottie is the vampiest-vampire of them all, and now a two-time global hottie, Kate Beckinsale.
