With all due respect Mr.President, that is not true.

The Cato Institute published a full page advertisement endorsed by well over 100 scientists that refute his repetition of the shameless alarmist falsehood that global warming is a serious problem.

Inconveniently for greentards everywhere, this ad ran as the news was breaking that even Al Gore couldn’t take Earth Hour tokenism seriously.

Expect rabid lefties to immediately attack every person on the list in an attempt to discredit them.   That those same lefties consider CO2 to be a pollutant tells you all you need to know about their own credibility.  Heh.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, March 27th 2009

This week sees the return of the weekly round-up, in which I serve up a cornucopia of climate skepticism with a side of snark.  Grab a coffee, none of that fair trade crap; the links start now.

Part One: Al Gore and Friends

Al Gore is a super-genius.  Not only was he able to amass a huge fortune from his global warming scam, he then wrestled away a Nobel prize from some aged Nazi opponent and has found a new way to make money from fearful hippies with, gasp, a new book.  Called ‘Our Choice’ promises to:

… utilizes Mr. Gore’s forty years of experience as a student,
policymaker, author, filmmaker, entrepreneur and activist to
comprehensively describe the real solutions to global warming.

The ‘Our Choice’ movie will star Leonardo DiCaprio as the student Al Gore as we follow him flunking seminary and university.  It will feature special effects from many famous Hollywood blockbusters.

ewwAl Gore selflessly inhales a victims CO2 emissions to save the planet

In better news, the Goreacle has deigned to allow some press at one of his events.  No questions, but still this is an improvement on his usual conehead of silence routine.

Debate, what debate?

..

Thirsty, drink from Al approved water-bottles.  I wonder if he makes money from these too?

Oh, and David Suzuki is a still a hippie, but is unlinkworthy this week.  In case you thought I’d forgotten him.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

The Catlin Arctic Survey, made the following report from their expedition:

“We’re hungry, the cold is relentless, our sleeping bags
are full of ice,” expedition leader Pen Hadow said in a statement
e-mailed yesterday by his team. “Waiting is almost the worst
part of an expedition as we’re in the lap of the weather gods.”
Was it ‘weather gods’, or the Gore Effect?  I provide, you decide.

Earth Hour is coming! This Saturday night, at 8.30 local time wherever you are, credulous fools and hippies will be in the dark.  This is an excellent opportunity to take a walk around your neighborhood to find out where all the morons live, which if you ask me is important information to have at hand in case of disaster.

Canada is selling an eco-terrorists ship out from under him.  Paul Watson, the lunatic eco-nut owner has threatened to seize the vessel back from whomever buys it.  If Somalian pirates outbid the competition, buy popcorn.  Or a whale-burger.

seasheparrrrdPirate-ready

Carbon Dioxide is a danger to the public? Obama’s EPA wants you to think so.  Who knew that tree-food was so toxic?

Here is some green-on-green red meat for my readers.  Solar power? Not In My Back Yard!

Al Gore has a lot to answer for.  Science or religion?  Religion, of course.

Greens, warmists and sundry alarmists are horrified, HORRIFIED about the Tata Nano.  Because brown people should not be allowed to advance economically without Al Gore’s permission.  Just ask an African.

A managerial bore has his dysfunction validated in the UK.  Because it’s science, and it’s settled, see.

CNN alum Peter Dykstra gets taken apart by Dr. Roy Spencer. If any reader knows why CNN, a cable network, has ‘News’ in it’s name, please leave a comment.

Do warmists exaggerate?  Global warming will killl 6 billion.  You think that might be a tad over the top?
Perhaps not, the UK wants to get rid of 30 million right away.  Thoughts on how to achieve that here.

Carbon kills polar bearsNot really, but greens love to scare children.

doomed-bearwazzzuuupppp!

Canada’s Green Party leader, ‘Dizzy’ Lizzy May, declares that we only have hours to save the planet, which is exactly what her dentist told her about her teeth.

The EPA, President Obama’s green squad, will have to look for a new deputy chief after Jon Cannon upheld a new but surprisingly popular tradition of withdrawing from an Obamanomination.

Did you know that the Democrats porkulus bill supports lawyers fighting against new, tough emissions standards? Heh.

CO2, safe, sustainable and non-toxic.  Someone get the talking points to that guy, stat!

St. Andrews, Scotland.  Scene of a rout in debate with climate weenies.  The scaremongers won the name-calling segment, no word on how the swimsuit round went.

Part Three: Inconvenient Truths

A favorite theme for green alarmists is that the Maldives are sinking.  Inconveniently for them, not so much, actually.

Hybrid car sales have collapsed faster than James Hansen’s credibility at a common sense convention.

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee uses an inadvisable synchronized swimming analogy as they cast doubt on the global warming theory.  While I admit that nose-plugs are often necessary around hippies, I don’t think rosy-cheeked swimmers with rictus grins help a skeptic’s case.  Just sayin’.

synchrowtfThis is to sport as AGW is to reality.

Al Gore and the alarmists are losing the argument as a real crisis takes the wind from the AGW sails.

Obama promised a green job boom.  Were you green enough to believe that? Suckers.

A new version of The Skeptics Handbook is available, it’s free.  Unlike anything Al Gore puts out.

700 scientists are now on the record against the AGW hoax. Pretty soon we’ll be talking numbers that even the greens won’t be able to dismiss.

The global warming hypothesis is dead, scientifically‘.  How inconvenient is that?

Steven Milloy has a new book out in May, ‘Green Hell’.  Preorder below:

Carbon taxes, revolting enough?

The short theory about why the AGW hoax is wrong.

Laurie Roth is concerned about the mental health of hippies.

Climate change we can believe in, just not right now.

It’s the Sun, stupid.

Skeptic friend Simon from Australian Climate Madness has made epic preparations for Earth Hour.

Part Four: AGW in the News

Dr. Tim Ball gets to be this week’s must read post.

World leaders are listening to the wrong climate experts.

Shell sucks the energy from wind, greens go nuts at losing the shell game.

Mother nature gives the finger to greens and their puny efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.

redoubtOffset this.

Saving Canada’s oilsands from the rabid green anti-industry lobby.

The EU slaps a tariff on US biodiesel, hungry people may soon eat again.

The BBC is busted for pro-alarmist bias.  So is The Times (and The Australian).

Global warming hoax is running out of hot air.  Inconvenient.

A UK council rents a plane to peer into citizens energy efficiency so that they may “pay them a visit to educate them about the harm to the environment and measures they can take.”
No mention of if the carbon burned for the exercise in Soviet-style surveillance was offset or not.

Part Five: Global Hottie

This week’s hottie is brought to you because she’s a true believer in AGW.  She thinks that changing light bulbs can save the planet, poor thing.  However, she is dangerously cute and worthy of being a global hottie.  Skeptics, say hello to Natalie Portman; she might be dumb but she’s hot.

natpor2That’s all folks, have a safe and well-lit weekend.

How Britain’s Greens Can Save the Planet

Perennial lefttard Jonathon Porritt has called for the UK to halve its population to a 'sustainable' level of 30 million people.

Porritt said:

“Each person in Britain has far more impact on the environment than those in
developing countries so cutting our population is one way to reduce that
impact.”

I think this is an excellent idea and can be a real win-win for the people of Britain.  Lefties, greens and hippies should immediately take up Porritt's challenge and walk into the sea to sacrifice themselves for the planet.  Hey, Earth Hour is coming, why not turn off all your lights for good and really make a difference?

Taking a leadership position on global warming sometimes means sacrifice, but I'm certain the planet's future means more to hippies and lefties than their own miserable existence in a world that doesn't understand them, so there really is no downside, unless you happen to be a bumper sticker printer. 

Step up, greenies and show us how serious you are about saving the planet.

Skepticism Explained

A  reader asked a question of me in a comment a while ago, and now that I am back to blogging I think I’ll answer it.  I write only of my own path to skepticism, I’m sure that there are many others who have different reasons, but that is for them to know and reveal, if they wish.

Jeremy, a hard-core anti-wealth AGW ‘believer’ asked me this question:

Could you just clarify something for me – leave aside the issue of what might be causing it, is the earth heating up or not?   Only you say there has been ‘no warming since 1997’, but repeatedly say ‘it’s the sun’ as if the earth is warming after all.

Short answer, maybe the planet is warming, maybe it’s not; it does not matter.  The most asinine label attached to anthropogenic global warming (AGW) theory is ‘climate change’.  Climate always changes, its natural state is to be in constant flux; climate has been warming and cooling long before man came along and will be doing so long after man is gone.

What I do not give credence is that man or his activities have any effect whatsoever on the climate of the planet.  Don’t get me wrong, I do not support wanton polluters or casual disregard for natural resources, but nor do I possess a desire to return to the stone age and give up all the wonderful inventions and conveniences of modern life.  If environmentalism simply meant promoting cleaner air, water and maximized use of resources like oil and gas, and embraced nuclear power I might even be a member of a group like that.

But AGW is nothing but junk science supported by flimsy computer models designed and operated by alchemists.  That Al Gore, a lifelong failure in every academic endeavor he ever undertook, leads this movement is the icing on the cake.

Consider that the planet is estimated to be anywhere between 3.5 and 4.5 billion years old.  It has survived meteor impacts, geologic upheavals, volcanic eruptions and glaciation, each of which humble man’s feeble ability to impact the planet.  Yet AGW theorists studied fewer than 100 years of recorded temperature data and claim to know not only that the world is warming, but that man is the cause.  If it were not so serious in its consequences, it would be laughable.

Why am I a skeptic?  Because the first time I heard about the issue of AGW, it was Al Gore and David Suzuki telling me that the science was settled and the debate was over.  Really?  Science is settled?  Show me anyone making that claim and I will show you someone unworthy of the respect due a scientist.  The arrogance of the claim raised a red flag in my enquiring mind, and when I started to investigate, the hubris and dishonesty of the AGW proponents became immediately apparent, and this blog was born.

Jeremy asks why I frequently refer to the Sun if I don’t believe in global warming.  Simply put, the Sun is the engine that drives climate – an active sun makes us warmer and a quiet sun warms us less, as demonstrated since the late 1990’s.  That’s it, all you need to know about climate ‘science’ is right there.  No computer models required.  Blaming AGW on trace amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere is akin to blaming dolphins for the tides.

I used to think that environmentalists of the old school were decent people, caring for the natural world and bringing attention to things that man could do better.  But some time ago the movement was hijacked by activists with agendas like anti-capitalism, anti-industry, anti-nuclear stances and these actvists were soon joined by any number of name-your-grievance losers that were unable to make a go of it in the real world and threw ideological tantrums as a result.

If these deluded folks did nothing but scream about their outrage du jour and did no harm, I’d let them go at it, whatever rows your boat.  But there is a dark underbelly to the greens that makes me furious, and I want them held accountable.  Greenpeace is a genocidal organization with the blood of millions of dead African children on its hands.  Greens try to convince us that using food for fuel is a good idea when almost a third of the global population is starving.  Greens claim that the planet cannot support the present population of the planet, and then go about encouraging behavior that makes that prediction a devastating reality.  Greens want to ban GM foods, ban DDT, ban fertilizers and anything that promotes efficient food production, never mind how many must die to satisfy their craven delusion that they are doing something ‘good’.

Until the cycle of cynical activism ends, I will use my little blog to represent the skeptical side of the equation.  Readers should make up their own minds, don’t take my word for it – educate yourself and see what you think, but at least think about it.  That is advice most of the green sites will never encourage, for they know that once people see the reality, their hoax is done.

It Lives

Phew, glad that's over.

The surgery was successful, although a bit larger than anticipated, hence a longer sojourn in hospital.  Physiotherapy is going well, in fact the only downside that lingers is that my (excellent) pain meds make concentrating on anything for more than 30 minutes difficult.  That said, I'm optimistic that returning to blogging will be easier than becoming a functional biped again. 

Posting may be sporadic for a while yet, but I anticipate getting a weekly round-up posted next week, even if it's a mini-version.
