Yesterday was Earth Day, so what better way to cleanse the palette from the green deluge of feel good hippy nonsense than 100 links of skeptical goodness.
Go get a beverage and a cushion, this may take a while.
Part One: Al Gore and Friends
Al Gore is a big fat liar. There, I said it. On his blog, Al claims that his slide show training sessions will be solar powered webcasts. Too good to be true? You know it. Here is the event for Normal, Illinois next week:
The event starts at 7pm. Sunset for Normal, Illinois on that date is 7.44pm. Solar at night, is there nothing the Goreacle can’t do?
Al Gore and Barack, sitting in a tree, K.I.S… hey wait a minute.
Profiteer Al is an investment banker, his firm is Generation Investment Management. Am I the only one concerned that Al has invested in something called Mindray Medical? Moonbats and their tin foil hats may be onto something.
Not Evil, Just Wrong, an important film. Help bring it to a theater near you.
It’s not just about light bulbs, says Al, as he celebrates the success of social engineering through green taxes.
In BC, the election campaigns are under way and we are treated to some totalitarian versus socialist action. It’s popcorntastic.
Part Two: AGW Scaremongers
All your dollars are belong to us. The head of a green investment firm wants to sell enviro-bonds; he doesn’t suggest where people taxed out of existence would find the cash, but I bet he’s working on it.
Only one third of Americans believe global warming has anything to do with human activity, which sends a reporter from Hippy Central nuts.
Never mind the science, where’s the money?
AGW clown and serial nutjob Joe Romm is at it again, claiming that:
“on our current emissions path we are going to warm the United States 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century and sea level rise will be 5 feet or higher and a third of the planet will be desert.”
Romm also thinks the next IPCC report will be useless, likely because it won’t dare repeat the garbage he spouts.
Joe ‘the planet has a fevah’ Romm
Green jobs and clean energy, nothing but alarmist lies. Next week, President of the World Obama will teach us how to make omelettes without breaking eggs.
Greens have turned from being pro-ecology into an anti-human death cult. They continue to urge the world to burn food for fuel, demonize efficient crop production and ban measures like DDT, because lots of dead brown people fit the green agenda perfectly.
Some useful idiots worry about ethics of skeptics, when its the greens that need scrutiny.
A student from my alma mater thinks outside the pine box and wants to bury you au naturale.
ipedia, not telling you the truth about warming. Again.
Making environmental rules to fit the optics, not the actual need.
Make way for the magnetic super highway system.
Pen Hadow and the Catlin Arctic expedition served no useful purpose, made no scientific discoveries and gave us all a good giggle. Thanks, Pen. Now tell us where the money came from.
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
…about cooling, from 1970.
Jennifer Marohasy continues to define greens, so you don’t have to.
The things you see when you’re out of grenades
Doug notices that green’s desired counteractions to warming make no sense at all. I would point out that the actions they demand make perfect sense if it’s a socialist agenda they are concerned with rather than fauxbal warming.
Steve McIntyre never tires of holding warmers feet to the fire, and they don’t enjoy it much. Coincidence then that the data he needs was deleted?
The global warming muppet show, starring Jim Hanson.
The truth is out there. Calling Fox Mulder, AGW believers need you:
I will say this for the UFO
crowd: to date they still have better photographic evidence to support
their claims than the catastrophic AGW alarmists have to support theirs.
Part Three: Inconvenient Truths
As National Geographic channel aired Earth Day propaganda about shrinking ice caps, the ice caps simply got on with growing. And growing. And growing. How inconvenient.
Global warming causes African droughts. Oh, wait. Nevermind.
Dr. Roy Spencer provides inconvenient facts about global warming.
Ethanol may be going the way of the polar bear harp seal penguin lesser spotted newt dodo.
Slapping scaremongers for spreading groundless fear.
Greens tell us that wind power is the way to go, and small windmills can power your house. And what do you know, they were right. It takes 47 windmills to power each house, so I hope you have a big yard.
1 down, 46 to go
It’s the Sun, stupid. Episode IV
sunspots, what sunspots?
Is it getting colder in here? An uber collection of cool links.
Think you’re buying green when you read the label? Think again.
Richard Lindzen has this week’s must read link.
It’s the Sun, stupid. Episode V
Think globally, act locally, kill the planet. More unintended consequences.
Obama’s green jobs are actually negative jobs.
American Thinker points out that alternative media is driving the skeptic message, but you’re reading a blog, so you already knew that.
Good news, we don’t need four more planets.
Nice planet, I’ll take it.
It’s the Sun, stupid
. Episode VI.
Al Gore is spending $300 million advertising global warming, which turns out to be excellent news for skeptics. Proof, meet pudding.
Part Four: AGW in the News
If you’re eating, don’t click the link. Biosolids. Just… ew.
News organizations assume solar power is free. It’s not.
A beanie for a new generation
Oh noes, we’re all going to die:
“Temperature Far Above Normalcy For Nine Months While Drought Reigns and Volcanoes Rage”
Oh, from 1921? My bad.
US Congress tackles global warming, because ‘fixing’ banks and motor companies is so last week.
Green guilt, the method by which greens seek to force you into behaviors or costs you don’t want or need, is on the decrease.
As the UK heads towards the last few weeks to buy regular light bulbs, panic buying sets in.
Good news, if the warmers are correct and the planet is doomed, we have a spare handy; and by handy I mean 1.17569996×1014 miles away.
where’d I put the spare. oh, snap.
Science is science, right? Not when it’s in a press release.
Green rhetoric, not entirely credible.
Canadian? Get ready to bend over, here comes the green agenda. Confused folks outside Canada that thought it was governed by a Conservative government should realize that in Canada, conservative means the least far left party in the room.
Fellow blogger and skeptic Simon narrowly avoided a head-pop when The Australian printed something not alarmist. He’s OK, he threw another Sheila on the barbie or something. there is no word on Marc Morano’s condition after CBS pulled a similar realist stunt.
Wind power, a load of hot air.
Busted, media bias and bird migration. African swallows carrying coconuts are not featured.
Part Five: Global Hottie
Astute readers may have noticed that this week’s round-up was packed with movie references, because this week that’s how I roll. Your hottie for this week starred in one referenced film when she was a wee lass. She’s all grown up now, so skeptics, welcome Miss Christina Ricci to the round-up hottie club.
That’s all for another week. Thanks for reading, and stay skeptical, I need the traffic.
