Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Feb. 27th, 2009

Hej och välkommen, or hello and welcome to the weekly round-up.  Thanks to the Swedish blogger behind klimathot I’ve been getting a lot traffic from Swedish visitors, hence the warm välkommen.  Here’s some more Swedish: Ikea hope you know how much I Volvo your visits, so much so that I’d be very Saab if you stopped visiting.

For readers not relying on Google to translate ye olde snark, this week’s round-up is the last until this is over.  I’m hoping I’ll only be gone for a few weeks, but until I am back enjoy this weeks edition and stay skeptical with the excellent sites listed for your convenience in the Daily Reading sidebar.

Part One: Al Gore and Friends

Al’s inconvenient African proverb.  Global warming prophet profit Al pays no serious attention to Africa, the entire continent is inconvenient for greens, which may explain why they try so hard to kill Africans.

Gorebot Millionaire?

Domo arigato, Mr Gorebot-o, but your hoax just met a Godzilla sized inconvenient truth and collapsed like a cheap futon under a Sumo wrestler.

Al pulls a slide, world gasps, did he read this?

Don’t forget to wish Al Gore a happy hoodie-hoo day.

Spoof Goreblog headline of the week: Climate Criminals Shoot Down Global Warming Satellite.

A failed Presidential candidate interviews another failed Presidential candidate; alarmism ensues:

..

Al Gore and the bad Apple.

David Suzuki is a grumpy old hippy:

“When I was born in 1936, just over two billion people lived on the
Earth. The population has tripled since then. Each of us now carries
dozens of toxic chemicals embedded within us, cancer has become the
biggest killer, and we have poisoned our air, water, and soil. The
human rush to exploit resources or take over territory has devastated
terrestrial and marine plants and animals.”


suzukifish“I once sold a hoax this big”

He’s also interfering in politics again, telling the people of Alberta that the leader they elected is unfit.  It’s surprising he didn’t demand Ed Stelmach be jailed, after all that’s just what totalitarians do.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

Plants are on death row.  Would it be so wrong to point out that it’s the greens that want to strip plant food (CO2) from the atmosphere?

Idiot leftist and uber self-promoter Arianna Huffington’s online paper supports planet-killing ethanol.

How do alarmists cope with the inconvenient lack of warming?  By moving the timeline, of course.

How many lobbyists does it take to sell a hoax in DC?

Contemporary interior 02A green lobby.  No, really.

The ice harvest.  Spare a thought for those brave souls that venture into the frigid cold each season, just so you can enjoy a scotch on the rocks.

China’s eco-village will be a demonstration of just how well green plans for sustainability will work.  Oh, wait.

Shark attacks are down, global warming NOT blamed.

Tom Nelson fact checks alarmists that ridiculed a dead guy for not publishing any peer reviewed papers since his demise.

Global warming is speeding up, a pretty good trick for something that has not happened for ten years.

Cracked earth causes global warming? I guess scientists have to justify staring into a crack for two years somehow.  Insert your favorite proctology joke here.

The keeper of my favorite list of all things caused by global warming is upset at being left off the who’s who list of deniers.

Grab your Global Warming Survival Kit here.

Global warming muppet Jim Hansen should be fired.

Give NASA credit where it is due, this week they achieved an impossible task and found something that crashed faster than Hansen’s credibility.

crunchdoh!

Sienna Miller, spokesmodel for Global Cool, has an inconvenient carbon footprint.  Sienna Miller has feet?

Ontario’s government finds a new way to raise cash from the green agenda.

The alarmists at Grist have decided to copy The Daily Bayonet’s model of bringing humor to the global warming circus:

Grist is an online news source for everything environmental. Their
mission is to publish environmental news and commentary, spiked with a
sense of humor and designed to motivate readers to take action on
behalf of the environment.

Bring it, bitches.

Earth Hour is only a month away.  Last year I found that leaving all the lights ON was like hippie fly-paper, but that’s not as fun as it sounds, Birkenstocks really tear up the lawn.

Alarmists are alarmed that the New York Times has gone wobbly on promoting the global warming hoax.

What do hippies have against soap anyway?

dirtyhippie**** you too, dude

Some half-wit called Steve Best thinks that Senator Inhofe is the top terrorist threat in the world.  I challenge him to say that in Afghanistan, Osama Bin-Hiding might have a thing or two to say about his claim to the title.

Part Three: Inconvenient Truths

A-Chu.  After the Gore Effect we now have to watch out for the Chu effect .  It’s a Climate Chu-chu-chain of fools.

The mayor of hippie-central, San Francisco raised hypocrisy to a new Haight(Ashbury) as he was caught hauling bottled water in his SUV.

Ahem, it’s the sun, stupid.

sun-sizestill think it doesn’t affect climate?

Feast or famine? The other side of the CO2 debate.

Is your company switching to green IT?  Suckers!

Leftards exert political pressure on skeptics.

An inconvenient spoof: Wind turbines damage the planet. (h/t reader Paul)

Australian’s efforts to reduce their carbon footprint are a waste of time, so chuck another hippy on the barbie Sheila.

The greens are losing the global warming argument debate, despite a massive funding advantage.  If it wasn’t for you pesky facts…

No warming since 1997.  How inconvenient.

It’s the big yellow ball in the sky, stupid.

Trees like CO2 so much that they’re munching more of it every year.  (Note to any kids reading this, yes, trees have big sharp teeth.)

killer-treesIt will eat children if the CO2 runs out

The greens love electric cars, but what happens when the power goes out?  Meanwhile, sales of hybrids drop faster than a narcoleptic at a Gore speech.

It’s Sol, Tardus

Carbon trading, meet markets.

Kallyvornya, not enjoying the green so much now that the green has run out.

When your hoax is falling apart, change the rules.

Part Four: AGW in the News

Global warming has a press agent.

The Washington Post’s freudian slip is showing.

The UK’s Daily Mail wins alarmist headline of the week:  Alligators off the UK, deserts in Europe, cities under water: What will happen if the world warms up 4C by 2050″

going-undergroundFuture Site of the London Aquarium

President Obama backs off the green agenda, Americans breathe sigh of relief.

British hippies are told to tear down their eco-home.  Because it has no parking.  You can’t make this stuff up.

Climate versus economy.  Pick one.

Questions arise about global warming in the UK.

Solar panels in Hollywood:  Measure B from Outer Space?

Oxymoron of the week: Media Credibility.

Press on press fight, the National Post v National Geographic.

Part Five: Global Hottie

I mentioned this week’s hottie above, she was taking some flak for her footprint.  I cannot verofy she has feet, but feel free to inspect the image carefully to see for yourself.  Sienna’s a greenie at heart, but no one’s perfect and I for one choose to forgive her.  Skeptics, be nice and say hello to Sienna Miller, your global hottie for this week.

sienna4

That about wraps it up, thanks for reading and I’ll see you soon.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Feb. 20th 2009

Welcome to the hottest weekly round-up since last week’s edition.  It’s been a very busy week in the world of global warming changey-hoaxy, so I have a lot of links for you.  In fact, if this post were a breakfast cereal I’d tell you that you’re getting 20% more sugary goodness FREE, there’s that much more stuff this week.  Dip in and get your skeptic fill of news and laughs, you know you want to.

Part One: Al Gore and Friends

Global Warming prophet profit Al Gore has told anyone that would listen that the ‘debate is over’, which makes me wonder what debate he’s asking the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to get involved in, exactly?

gorenochioThe Goreacle speaks to the AAAS

Al likes to get others involved in his global hoax because it turns out he’s actually a shy guy and hates any sort of attention that might demand he answer a question or two about the real science.

Tom Nelson discovers a cooling trend in Al’s Internet traffic… perhaps Al needs some new material?

Some hunger activists want Al to make another movie, but Action Against Hunger is likely to fail in their bid to draft the scaremeister.  Al’s already made as much money from starving people as he can, there is no upside for him to make another movie.

Here’s another course of study that Al would have failed had he been eligible for it, which thankfully he wasn’t.

Despite Al’s best alarmist efforts, his hoax is failing, despite the best efforts of his trusty servant and warming muppet Jim (Igor) Hansen.

Canadian alarmist and irritating hippy David Suzuki faces some awkward questions about just how apolitical his Foundation is.  Hey, he’s a geneticist not an accountant.  Or a climate expert, even though Ontario is using him as the Powerwise frontman.

mutezukiif only it was this easy…
Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

Prince Chuckles, the loony-tune royal that dumped the hot model so that he could marry his horse, is going to save the world by flying around in a jet that could transport over 140 people, but will have fewer that 20 aboard.

freshThe Fresh Prince of Green Air

Tom Nelson exposes an alarmist that actually did his researchAfter years of alarmism, that is.

Land sinking or sea rising?  Does anyone care, atoll?

Spare a thought for the cuddly koala that environmentalists tried to kill twice.

Now that the world has no money left, the World Bank can concentrate on its real expertise, global warming.

The BBC, promotes alarmist nonsense from Chris Field.  The inconvenient truth about ‘climate scientist’ Field is here.

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers gets blowback for peddling the global warming hoax.

A skeptic and a warmist walk into a synagogue… (click for the ‘punchline’)

It’s like alarmists want to lose what little public support remains, now they attack burgers?

Think Progress have provided an excellent public service and have created a must-see list of what they term Climate Denial Jokers.  Check out the comments where miffed skeptics plead to be added to the list, it’s the funniest thing I’ve seen since the last funniest thing I saw.  Unfortuantely, The Daily Bayonet failed to make the list, but rest assured I will work ever harder to gain the scorn of the hippies.

A warming muppet wants even more civil disobedience, and films an anti-coal commercial, but the big news is that James Hansen fell off the deep end when he used the term ‘death-trains’ to describe coal trains.  The ones that provide much of America’s power and stops people freezing to death.  Pielke sums up Hansen beautifully.

love-or-deathJames Hansen hates jazz, apparently

Alarmist nonsense hurts Africans, again, and Aussie greens turn into deniers about their role in the wild fire tragedy.

Greenpeace gets beaten up by Polish Miners.  Those are miners from Poland, not people who dig shoe polish, just to be clear.

A global poll conspiracy, or an idiot called Lee?  You decide.

What do Alec Baldwin and Christie Brinkley have in common?  A flat-lined IQ, that’s what.

Bill Clinton, a man uncertain of the definition of the word ‘is’, declares that the “climate will crater and we won’t be able to preserve civilization” unless he gets an new intern, freshly oiled and perfumed delivered to his office every day.  OK, Imade that last bit up, but he was scary-alarmy, not at all hopey-changy.

Canadian athletes, already assured that they will have a Gold neutral 2010, are demanding a carbon neutral event too.

When Greens go bad (NSFW autoplay video – language)

Part Three: Inconvenient Truths

Bjorn Lomborg describes a better way to manage the green agenda:

“If every country committed to spending 0.05 percent of its GDP
exploring non-carbon-emitting energy technologies, this would translate
into US$25 billion per year, or 10 times more than what the world
spends now. Yet, the total also would be seven times cheaper than the
Kyoto Protocol, and many times cheaper than the Copenhagen Protocol is
likely to be. It would ensure that richer nations pay more, taking much
of the political heat from the debate.”

The inconvenient demise of ethanol, one of Al Gore’s favorite things.  Oh, and it wrecks the environment too.

Global warming is bad for lizards.  Add them to the listButterflies too.

geico-thisA lizard, lounging

The UNIPCC, the oracle for the Goreacle, claims to be the consensus that proves global warming is real.  How inconvenient is it then that only 1 in 5 members are actually climate scientists?

350.  A dramatic sequel to the shouty  “This is SPARTA” movie, or the most important number on Earth?

Another Hansen take-down, courtesy of Planet Moron.

Global warming is actually global cooling, and it has not stopped yet.

It’s the heliospheric current sheet, stupid.

The hits to the green love for compact fluorescent lamps keep coming.  First the inconvenient mercury, now CFL’s are found to actually increase carbon emissions.

Windmills, not that good, actually.

who-broke-windbusted

All the warmists depend on dodgy computer models for their doomsday predictions.  It’s a pity the data they plug into those models is junk, then.

Global warming threats are empty, says a guy in Cleveland.

Global warming and The Caine Mutiny, this week’s must-read.

Nuclear power, not as scary as the greens want you to believe.

Climate is unpredictable, predictably enough.

The BBC decides that the public is simply not scared enough and attempts to correct the situation.

Coldplay?  Not so much as it turns out.

Good news, America, the EPA is going to ask you to bend over, again.

Green schemes, studies and scientists are getting gazillions of dollars from the Porkulus Bill.  Since the sums are so vast can skeptics stop listening to the green whines about research funded by ‘big oil’?  After all, surely if money corrupts science as the greens claim, they must be equally vulnerable to the lure of megabucks, right?

Part Four: AGW in the News

Shockah!  The UK’s Guardian prints a skeptical article.

Irish environment minister and skeptic gets support.

Is it safe to eat green pork?

CBS finds a vicious cycle, spins.

The million snowman march.

Canada’s National Post wants global warming off the agenda.

Australia gets it’s very own skeptics party.  That’s a political party, not a drunken celebration; although one does not rule out the other, we are talking about Aussies.

Alarmists missed their moment to be honest.  Again.

Alberta Addresses Oil Sands’ Gigantic Footprint.  Send mail to #1, Oil Sands Gigantic Footprint, Fort McMurray, AB

dig-itOffset that, Gaia!

Minnesota pulls back on green initiatives.

Lessons the UK can learn from this winter.

Kallyvornya’s shedding jobs by the thousand.  Welcome to the harsh reality of a green economy.

The climate change fraud.

Want a green home?  Prepare to get medieval.

Part Five: Global Hottie

This week’s hottie is brought to you courtesy of a tenuous link to Gore Lied’s decision to run his latest poll using Poll Daddy.  I thought Poll Daddy sounded like Go Daddy, and so you have the fast and curvy spokesmodel for Go Daddy, Danica Patrick, for this week’s hottie.  After all, every skeptic likes a fast woman.

danica3
That’s a wrap for this edition of the round-up, thanks for reading and enjoy a terrific weekend.

Green Tomatoes

Greens found themselves in some awkward positions last week when the campaign to promote mercury laced compact fluorescent lamps met the inconvenient truth that the UN is demanding less mercury use.

I wonder how greens, those fearful, fragile creatures that get faint over the thought of a genetically modified tomato, can support geo-engineering, the attempt to stop ‘global warming’ by messing with the whole planet.

One of the principle green objections to GM foods is that once enhanced foods are in the ecosystem, there is no control over the process which may have unforeseen but totally scary consequences.  Yet take a look at some of the geoengineering projects proposed or under way:

  • Wind scrubbers to filter carbon dioxide from the air
  • ‘fertilization’ of oceans with iron to encourage growth of plankton
  • Petrification of carbon dioxide
  • Deflection of sunlight from the earth through the use of a giant space mirror ‘spanning 600,000 square miles’
  • Wrapping Greenland in a blanket

Unless greens can prove they know all the potential outcomes of each of these projects, they do not meet the standard of ‘do no harm‘ that they demand for GM foods.  How inconvenient.

Poll Dancing

My friend at GORE LIED featured a story recently about some inconvenient poll results removed by Aussie broadcaster ABC.  For his trouble, he was accused of making the story up (he didn't).

This morning brings a fresh opportunity to see how that vote might have ended up had ABC not censored itself.  

GORE LIED is showing ABC that polling is as easy as, er, well, ABC and has recreated the exact poll question and is going to let it stand, no matter the outcome.  Ballsy?  You betcha.

You have until Saturday to vote, get to it.

Quebec Erases History

Quebec separatists, or traitors as I more accurately call them,  have succeeded in their attempt to scrap the annual reenactment of the battle of the Plains of Abraham.  If your grasp of history is shaky, the French lost that battle to the English, a habit they picked up sometime around the time of Agincourt and one that even Napoleon couldn't shake.

Later, of course, the French decided not to fight any battles at all, preferring instead to throw their arms in the air at the first sign of trouble and wait for more successful armies to rescue them.

It makes sense that the next step in the restoration of French pride is to simply erase inconvenient history altogether.  Canadians should help the Francophones erase all losses from history.  Let's start by deciding that separatists won the secession referendum in 1980, then we can kick them out and be free of their nonsense forever. 

Everyone wins, even the French, for a change.

Mercury Rising

Here is a statement issued by the United Nations about mercury:

“A clear and unequivocal vision of a low mercury future needs to be
set,” UNEP head Achim Steiner said on the eve of a February 16-20
meeting in Nairobi of environment ministers who will consider a new
strategy to limit mercury. “Inaction on the global mercury challenge is
no longer an option.”
More:
“No one alive today is free from some level of mercury contamination,”
he said. “”The World Health Organization argues there is in the end no
safe limit.”

How does the UN’s new found concern fit with the green approved push to Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s)?  Oops, it doesn’t.  David Suzuki, Canada’s own Goreacle-lite, has a whole page dedicated to greenwashing the mercury content of CFL’s.  I skewered that position almost exactly one year ago here.

The UN report on mercury exposes the green movement’s hypocrisy in a trap of their own making.  By vigorously advocating CFL’s as essential ‘green’  technology they persuaded the governments of Canada and the UK to legislate incandescent bulbs into obsolescence, making the only lighting option available to over 100 million people the mercury-containing CFL.  I can tell you first hand what normal people do when a CFL dies, and it isn’t pretty if you happen to be green.

Green zealots pushed CFL technology without considering all the facts, and now they have created the conditions for future problems of mercury content in groundwater, landfills and so on.  I guess this will be like the DDT ban all over again and they try to slink off and pretend that they didn’t make things worse with their activism.

Not this time.
