Thursday, so we’re off to the races with another round-up. I was asked if I’m dateslexic because the post is dated for Fridays, but issued Thursdays. Call me quirky and see if I care, it’s just the way it is.
Get beveraged up, there’s 100+ links of skeptilicious waiting for you.
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
The world was doubly blessed this week when Saint Al of Tennessee posted not once, but twice on his blog. In his first entry, Al descended from the mountain in his Prius to declare that he had seen the actions of The One, and that they were good. In the bonus second coming post, the Goreacle declared this week to be an important one, almost as important as the civil rights movement his dear old dad opposed.
Alarmists dun gone country and headed to Nashville y’all. Unfortunately they went not for the Grand Ole Opry but for the Grand Ole Hoaxfest.
Al Gore reminded everyone that he is not just the hippies spiritual leader in the struggle to enrich himself, he also used to be a lying scumbag politician.
CNN’s John Roberts was momentarly seized by skeptical space aliens in a brain control ray and was forced to ask Al Gore an awkward question. Fortunately while Al was on screen not answering it, Roberts was fitted with a counter space alien ray hat and normal service resumed.
Al Gore, home town zero.
Profit Al was asked another awkward question this week, but it was on the Internet, not on TV. Everyone knows that Al is not required to answer questions asked on the Internet, because he invented it and is therefore immune. It was a good question though.
Part Two: AGW Scaremongers
One of the scaremongers-in-chief, and muppet, Jim Hansen is roasted for his inability to make accurate forecasts. It’s not easy being green.
Just when you thought that global warming couldn’t get any worse, some new computer model comes along and makes it the greatest health threat of the century!!!!ELEVENTY!
But wait, that’s not the worst of it. Proving that global warming science is just a competition between alarmists to see who has the scariest model, this bunch claim that global warming will kill billions of people this century. Oh noes, we is double-dog doomed.
A new Canadian group of scaredy-alarmists has formed, and they are backed up with some serious scientific brain power:
Prominent supporters of PowerUP Canada include Canadian Olympian, Adam Kreek – Gold Medalist at the Beijing Olympics, Canadian actors Rachel McAdams, Kiefer Sutherland, Neve Campbell, Charles Martin Smith, Prof. Thomas Homer-Dixon, Clayton Ruby, Michael Ondaatje, Margaret Atwood, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Designer Evan Biddell, Moses Znaimer and many more.
Professor Homer-Dixon of Waterloo U has a new book out which predicts that the world will explode when CO2 hits 400ppm. Well, maybe not explode, but he’s still whipping up the scared.
Last week we touched on the mega cash bucksalooza that GE will reap if the Obama administration gets its cap and bend over legislation passed. Here then, is Exhibit One of a GE vehicle promoting the scare to ensure GE’s gazillions.
Aussie Ian Plimer undergoes a proctological examination of his footnotes while Al Gore and the Scaremeisters escape even a cursory check. But that’s not a double standard or anything, really.
Pity the polar bear. Oh, wait. Nevermind.
Back to the Eighties! Jennifer M. calls out the greens as the New Romantics, part deux. Look out for Spandau Duran Japan, or something.
Hey, weathermen, or weatherchicks. OK, weatherpeople. Check out this handy guide on how to become a climate scaremonger shill in three easy steps. Order now and receive a lifetime supply of Shamwows to mop up the rising sea waters.
Science as reported by scaremongers: Would Will Might Maybe Could. Yeah.
Don’t sweat the effects of the Waxman-Malarkey bill, you’ll get your very own personal allowance to use. Hey, don’t knock it, it worked in Soviet Russia for non-essentials like food, freedom, phones and cars.
Global warming is a hysterical delusion akin to the South Sea bubble, tulip-mania, and witch mania. Burn them!
A magazine goes after skeptics with an ambitious project to discredit them us. Because that’s how to win scientific debate, name calling and pulling hair. Come get me, you fairies.
Shockah, and Exhibit Two of the great GE swindle. CEO Jeff Immelt declares that cap and bend over is the way to go!
If you ever wondered why sports reporters are considered to be the journalistic equivalent of a single-celled organism, all ambition and no brain, wonder no more.
To wrap this section, Exhibit Three in the GE plot to plunder America. MSNBC, a GE vehicle, and Chris Matthews, a tingly sensation once thought to be a journalist, calls a skeptical republican a troglodyte:
Part Three: Inconvenient Truths
Don’t tell anyone, but it’s getting cooler.
Building green houses is easy and affordable. If by easy you mean impossible and affordable you mean $1125 per square foot.
Ethanol, the only fuel to be termed a crime against humanity lives on. But only because of the sweet subsidies it attracts.
Facts can be pesky, so why not just change them? Now can I have my grants please?
It’s the Jupiter, stupid.
Prius drivers and wind farm supporters, read this and weep, you planet killing morons.
Global warming, not happening. Period.
Greenpeace is in the red in Oz. Excuse me for one moment. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, oh stoppit, it hurts. OK, I’m over it.
A better environment through heavy industry, you know it makes sense.
It’s the Sun, stupid.
Wave power, wave bye bye.
The Heartland Institure has released a new book ‘Climate Change Reconsidered:
The authors cite thousands of peer-reviewed research papers and books that were ignored by the IPCC, plus additional scientific research that became available after the IPCC’s self-imposed deadline of May 2006.
Partisans pretending to be non-partisans tell lies to get Waxman-Markey passed.
Dr. Tim Ball, telling the world the facts about CO2, whether it wants them or not.
What will happen to many of the climate models that the global warming scare is based on, now that one of the central assumptions in these models turns out to be dead wrong?
Enviro-skeptic and the little known fifth member of Abba, Bjorn Lomborg outs the climate-industrial complex and, not content with that effort goes on to question the apocalyptic vision of New Amsterdam’s future. He makes some good points, so go read it all. He highlights the one constant in green theory, that as the alleged effects of global warming begin, man does nothing but stand and watch. In what reality would New Yorkers stand and do nothing as they watch their city flood? It’s not going to happen, but even if it did, can you imagine that Americans would passively accept it and do nothing? Me either.
Part Four: AGW in the News
The effects of melting ice on sea level has been greatly exaggerated.
Japan leads the way in showing the world how to waste good money and kill local economies in the name of being green.
Greens are public enemy number one:
The reason I rail so often against so many tenets of the green faith — from biofuels to carbon trading to the ludicrous attempts to get polar bears designated as an endangered species — is because I sincerely believe they are among the greatest current threats to the advancement of humankind. Yes, that’s right: greens aren’t the solution. They’re public enemy number one.
Good news, a biodiesel plant is struggling to survive. Hopefully that means that poor people are not struggling quite so hard to survive.
The fight against global warming is all cost and no benefit.
Honda’s new Insight reviewed:
It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree, on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more.
Cooling or warming? That’s a great question.
Green roofs in major metropolises, are they worth it? Does anyone care?
Global warming is dead, cooling has arrived. If only politicians would pay more attention to articles like this one, we might be able to get on with solving some real problems.
I studied nuclear science, loved my classes, got a crazy teacher who wears dark glasses…
The Obama administration has decided to stop using Spain’s experience with green jobs, since it was a disaster. Why let the people see what’s coming, they’ll only worry.
Canada’s Environment Minister suggests that the Obama climate bill would be a disaster.
The UK’s Independent, an alarmist rag at the best of times runs a story about how the Sun’s recent inactivity may save us from global warming. How come they accept that cooling might be caused by the Sun, but not warming? Funny, eh?
Part Five: Global Hottie
This week’s hottie is unusual in that she actually made it to one of the stories in the round-up, so I don’t even have to attempt a dodgy link to global warming. I give you Canadian hottie and under-employed actress Neve Campbell, this week’s global hottie and genuine scaremonger.
That’s another round-up, all wrapped up. Thanks for reading, now get outside and enjoy that global warming.
