Global Warming, following the money trail

February 15, 2007

Hi Brit,

I’ve said before that the case for “Global Warming, end of the world so we must act NOW” is motived more by money and politics than science.  It seems that I am not alone in this belief, On Global Warming: Follow the Money Indeed!  However, even though the lie of Global Warming is now so entrenched in the public mind that there is no stopping these fear mongers from winning, we can still learn some lessons from this gigantic and corrupt conspiracy.

1.  Always follow the money before trusting anyone’s motives.

2.  Never, under any circumstances, ever, trust anyone either employed by, or connected to, the United Nations.

3.  It’s past time to question why scientific research needs to be funded by the Government.

4.  It’s way past time to question our continued funding of the UN.

5.  Most politicians get their jobs by being good liars.  Why do we expect them to change their ways once they get in office?

6.  We, as a country, have few friends outside our boarders.  We should start acting like it.

7.  Almost all fanatics, be they religious, political, or environmentalists, are evil and should be dealt with accordingly.

Stupid liberals!

February 11, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was reading this, Hybrid-Only Car Service Launches in San Francisco, and it hit me as to just how stupid liberals are, as a general rule.  The key point in this is that, according to the story, the idea is to make rich people flying into Nanny Pelosi’s home town feel better by taking “green” transportation around town, after dumping untold tons of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere while flying in a fuel waisting jet.  Then I read the details, and was shocked.  Keep in mind that the article is tainted with the usual liberal bias, even though it does throw in a tiny hit about the jet travel thing, but it also includes, “with a fleet of leather-seated Priuses.”  I’m sure that the reporter, not knowing squat about Global Warming, didn’t think twice about this.  However, the secondary part of the Climate Change Conspiracy, the one that really gets the radical liberals frothing at the mouth over its potential for bringing about social change, is the implication of cow farts in heating up the globe.  That would, of course, be the methane content in the massive flatulence produced by our bovine food supply, which is an excuse for left wing groups to insist everyone turn vegetarian.  Thus the paradoxical nature of a “green” car with leather seats.  Oh, well, I am assuming that the leather was produced from cow hide and not Jews, but that is most likely a safe assumption.

The true face of liberalism, another chapter.

February 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

Let us imagine that a conservative candidate for President discovered that, in the past, two of his/her staffers had written evil nasty things about gays or Hispanics.  What do you think the lot of those people would be?  Terminated immediately with great fanfare and many apologies for ever being associated with such horrible people, is the correct answer.  However, if a liberal candidate for President has the same situation, with the exception that the writing was anti-Catholic hate speech, Edwards Won’t Fire Bloggers For Catholic Church Criticisms, you can plainly see that the attitude is completely different.  Obviously, liberals are perfectly OK with hating certain groups, as long as they are listed in the Big Book of Political Correctness under Evil Groups Approved to be Detested.  Unfortunately for Edwards, he happens to fall into one of those categories, the Evil Rich.  Of course, the liberal press are unlikely to point that out, or even mention the linked story.  Typical.

Silence is golden!

February 7, 2007

Hi Brit,

That sound you don’t hear is the liberal chatter presented by the talk radio network Air America.  The reason you don’t hear it is that they went belly up, Air America Fire Sale.  The reason for their dismal failure wasn’t a lack of words.  After all, Al Franken alone produces more than enough hot air to fill up a normal broadcasting schedule.  No, they flopped because their target audience, knee jerk liberals, don’t listen to talk radio.  Radical left shows have been tried time and time again in markets all across the country with the same result, no one listens.  Of course, not being believers in capitalism, liberals have trouble understanding the nature of the problem, so they just keep on throwing money at it.

And now, a moment of silence for the dearly departed…………..

Global Warming, the real story

February 4, 2007

Hi Brit,

I’ve found a few bits and pieces of evidence that the Church of Climate Science rests on a hoax, but it’s difficult to tie them all together.  Fortunately, I found where someone else has had a go at that task, Statistics needed.  This is the first in a series of articles about Deniers of Global Warming, why the science put forth by the IPCC is wrong, what tactics are used within the scientific community to stifle any hint that the science of Climate Change is not settled, and points out some of the lies the UN has placed in the reports on the subject.  Links to the other 9 articles are included on that page.  Considering that this series contains enough evidence to seriously damage the Myth of Man-Made Global Warming, and we all know how angry people get when their religion is questioned, it would be best to read it soon, as I suspect the host will be brought under great pressure to remove it.

Oh, and I just found this, Researchers build lasers for NASA climate studies, which points out even more of the inadequacies in the current state of Climate Science.

 Oh, oh, and in case there is some question as to what other motives may be at work behind the scenes, 45 Countries Push for New Worldwide Environmental Body.

Thank you Scientific American!

February 3, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, the buy in to the Global Warming hoax is complete with this bit from Scientific American, Final Report: Humans Caused Global Warming.  The once independent and respected science magazine has, obviously, been either bought or pressured by Higher Powers into this trite piece of crap journalism.  What a sad day.

For instance, they say “a panel of climate experts has confirmed,” when they know, or should know, that the “climate experts” have backgrounds in a wide range of disciplines having nothing to do with climate studies.

Then they continue with, “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a working group of some 3,000 delegates from 113 countries, today issued its final report here on the state of climate change”  Which is another bit of reportage dung, since this isn’t the final report but, rather, the premature release of the summary of a report that will be issued later, but which will be edited to conform to the political statement represented by this summary.  Shame on you once great science journal.

Then they go on to include this bit of drek, “Some of the models show an ice-free Arctic. We see more severe extremes, heat waves. We see a lot of heavier precipitation, drought increases in a lot of regions. Tropical cyclones are projected to become more intense in a lot of areas with ongoing increases in sea surface temperatures,” says Gerald Meehl, an atmospheric scientist at the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and a contributing author. “We see what we’ve already seen but everything becoming a lot more extreme.”  Knowing full well that computer models of climate change are not intended to be predictive, but, rather, are merely a means of testing scientists’ understanding of what has happened to date.  I would ask, “who is paying you off SA, and what is the dollar amount necessary to buy your integrity?”

 Then they slip this in, “This warming would vary from place to place, with some regions experiencing far more,” begging the question of what is actually meant by “global warming?”

Back to computer models we have this pearl of wisdom: For instance, thanks to a diversity of computer models—as well as several runs of each—the scientists can now provide a best estimate for the temperature change based on a doubling of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere: three degrees Celsius.  To which I must ask, if the models are worth the cost of the electricity it takes to run them, then why are several runs of each necessary?  The answer, of course, is that the models are tossing dice (random numbers) somewhere in their bowels so each run comes out different.  Keep this in mind when your taxes go up based on these “facts.”

Finally, we come to the real problem with this article, and the IPCC report.  Instead of being based on science, it’s based on politics and committee meetings as is shown by, “The process of drafting this summary report proved contentious at times. For example, a sentence was ultimately removed that said man-made greenhouse gases outweigh the contribution of the sun by a factor of five.”  Sorry to bother you “climate scientists” with this, but “facts” are either true, or they are not true.  Anytime data has to be followed with a plus/minus degree of accuracy, it’s a guess just like an opinion poll.  Scientific American should know better than to fall for this crap.  You disappoint me greatly.

Hillary slips, admits she’s a whore for socialism!

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

While I have never had any doubt that Hillary Clinton is, at heart, a socialist, she finally admitted it to the world today, Hillary on Oil Profits.  In this short clip from her speech, she proclaims that, as President, she would take the profits from the oil companies and invest it in research programs.  I’ll leave the rant about alternative energy and its general state of being a pipe dream until later.  However, I must take a moment and explain to the Candidate From Hell that the race is for President.  If she wants to be Dictator, she should go to Cuba or Venezuela.  Even though I hope daily that Bill finally gets tired of her and adds her to the long list of dead Friends Of Bill, this admission of greed and corruption having a prominent place in her personal philosophy, once again demonstrates the stomach turning ugliness that is the true face of the Democratic Party and liberalism in general.

IPCC report fixed!

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

After the release of the new IPCC study, the news is full of story after story about Climate Change! I’ve got half a dozen in different tabs that I’ve been trying to connect together for a post.  Then I found this, Climate Change’s Carnival Atmosphere, which does a pretty good job of summing things up.

This is the best bit:

 First, the UN isn’t releasing its full report this week – just the curiously edited “Summary for Policy Makers.” The detailed report on the science won’t be issued until May or so because it’s not finished.

If you’re wondering how the UN can issue a summary of a report that’s not even finished, fear not. The UN has announced that changes to the full report shall be made “to ensure consistency with the Summary for Policy Makers.”

Basically, this admits that the results come first, and the research is rigged later to match.  Not a bad scam, but hardly worth the $5,000,000,000 the US is spending a year on this junk.  So, in the coming years, as your utility bill gets larger, your light bulbs become poisonous, you can’t fit comfortably into your over priced “green” car, and your local, state, and Federal taxes shoot through the roof, it’s all for a good cause.  Climate Scientists need the money.

Speaking of double standards…

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

You may not be aware of the nature of our information distribution here in the States, seeing as how your Government has so much control of yours.  On one hand, we have the broadcast TV networks, which, in general, have a decidedly liberal slant on the news.  On the other hand, the radio broadcast news and commentary shows, have the opposite slant.  Over the last few election cycles, this has proved to be a great advantage to the Republican Party.  A few years ago (2,3,4?) a liberal coalition with Evil Rich backing, decided to start a radio show group with a liberal slant, in an attempt to counter the conservative advantage.  It was called Air America, and, at its peak, was carried on eighty something stations out of several thousand.  It went bankrupt last year and has finally given up the ghost and folded yesterday.  It is interesting to note that this death was not mentioned in the main stream liberal press.  However, it has had a side effect.  One of the failed stars is running for office, Official: Al Franken to Make Senate Run in Minnesota.  In normal circumstances I would say this is funny, however, the citizens of Minnesota are just strange enough that Al may have a chance.

Liberal double standard

Here’s another example of the double standard our media has for liberals vs conservatives.  It was not that long ago that a Republican Representative was forced to resign because he sent some obscene text messages to a former page, yet we have this: South Dakota Senate Censures Senator for Sexual Misconduct With Legislative Page.  This sexual predator actually slept with a page, and only gets a “censure.”  Typical.

The Global Warming hoax continues!

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

Apparently, not everyone on the planet has bought into the Global Warming hoax yet, so they’re putting out this: Satellite data vital to UN climate findings.  While I would be fine with the title, I would also question why the satellite data wasn’t vital to the previous findings.  Could it be because previous satellite data didn’t back up the Global Warming Theory and was thus discarded?

Anyway, even this bit of media biased reporting casts suspicion on the entire Global Warming scheme in its opening line, “The most authoritative report on climate change to date will be released tomorrow in Paris, France.”  If the previous reports were not “authoritative” then why, a rational person might ask, are we in a rush to base policy on them? 

Then we have this bit of scandal, “Predictions for the future of global warming in the report, intended as a summary for policymakers, are based on 19 computer models.”  I would point out that I can have you any number of computer models, within a month, that will show anything you want them to predict.  To verify the projections of these computer games, one has to wait until the date of the projection and take REAL MEASUREMENTS!  This is admitted in the next paragraph of the report, “The ability of satellites to deliver global data on the Earth System makes them particularly useful to study climate change and to validate and assess the quality of climate models.”

Then we have this twisted bit of misdirection, “Satellites are often the only means of studying the Earth’s Polar Regions because of their remoteness, darkness and cloudiness.”  Which makes me wonder how, considering that the greatest warming in the other IPCC reports occurred in the Arctic, was measured without the aid of this satellite data included in the latest report. 

Another interesting quote from the story is, “Satellites are useful for helping build scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane — the second most important greenhouse gas after carbon dioxide. Using the Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY) instrument aboard Envisat, researchers at the University of Heidelberg in 2005 were able to confirm increased methane concentrations induced mainly by human activities. ”  Which raises the question of why the 2001 report was presented in such a definitive manner if it wasn’t confirmed until four years later?  Of course, that delay, and the obvious agenda being pushed by these “scientists” brings anything they say after the initial report into doubt.

As a parting shot, allow me to present this:

A space-borne instrument known as a radar altimeter offers valuable information on the state of the ocean by providing measurements of the height of the ocean surface. Data acquired by radar altimeters aboard Envisat and ERS show sea levels have been rising by three mm a year since the early 1990s.

I would point out that the alarmist predictions of the initial IPCC report were of sea level rises of several feet, even hundreds of feet.  For the record, 3 mm is 0.11811 inches, so a hundred years at this rate is less than a foot.  Of course, one would have to question the ability of satellite measurements of a wave tossed ocean to have this level of accuracy.

The last Global Warming skeptic?

January 31, 2007

Hi Brit,

I have good news!  Even our most liberal news paper, perhaps the most liberal serious paper in the world, the New York Times, is not totally convinced about Global Warming and Climate Change: World Scientists Near Consensus on Warming!  While the rest of the story is full of the usual liberal, Global Warming as religion tripe, there is one bit which is very instructive:

Scientists involved in writing or reviewing the report say it is nearly certain to conclude that there is at least a 90 percent chance that human-caused emissions are the main factor in warming since 1950. The report is the fourth since 1990 from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which is overseen by the United Nations.

 “It is nearly certain that there is at least a 90% chance,” that, to me, says they don’t know!  You should also note that, instead of the usual 100 year comparison, they’ve shifted to a 50 year time span.  That’s because, it’s obvious that the temperature spike in the first half of the last century wasn’t due to human activity.  They can’t really explain its cause, but, quietly buried in the reports of the liberal media, is the admission that we didn’t cause it.  It only took 20 years for that bit of information to come to semi-light.  Of course, to any rational mind, that would bring up the question of trust to the “climate scientists” findings about the most recent temperature increase.  Unfortunately, there is grant money, political power, and business interests at stake, so the truth will have to wait.

Another question a rational person might ask, is what has consensus got to do with science?  While I did suffer through a public school education, I was always taught that science dealt with fact, not opinion.  It is a disturbing surprise to me that science has devolved into a popularity contest.  If this is going to be the trend in “science,” it seems to me that, to make it fair, we should put it to our elected representative to decide the position science will bow to.  That would at least, save us a few billion on research funding.

January 30, 2007

Hi Brit,

It’s almost time for the new UN-IPCC Climate Change report.  Yea Haw.  Of course, having already sold the concept to the money people, they are, apparently, toning down the dire warnings.  After all, fixing the “problem” too quickly would put thousands of experts out of work.  However, in this story, Clouds a puzzle for U.N. global warming panel, thet they’re really not sure about a lot of things.  For instance, they have no clue as to what effect cloud formation will have on the situation.  And then we have this interesting quote:

“‘In the interior of Greenland, the ice has been thickening,’ said Catherine Myrmehl, of the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, based upon satellite readings. Many scientists reckon Greenland is losing ice overall.”

I do so love science.  The cold unemotional nature of the numbers.  The precise measurements.  The clear exact language used to communicate the findings.  So, if many scientists reckon the ice is going, that’s just dang sure enough good for me.  Let’s just go ahead and shut the whole planet down and cower in the dark like our ancestors.

NGO’s empowered

January 30, 2007

Hi Grit

I read with interest your comment about power being delegated to committees and am really thinking that you and your fellow Americans would not feel at home in the UK, despite popular beliefs.

The problem with where power lies and decisions can be made in the UK is even more complex than the US. Like you, we have a system where governments, when they get into power, think “don’t need the electorate now!” so they delegate some of the most difficult laws and regulations to those who do not have to vote on it. For example, when there was all the furore about big business, ancient men (notice I did not use the word wise?) were gathered together to define new regulations to control corporate governance. This produced a regulation that, whilst not law, was orchestrated in such a way that if a corporation did not implement, they would be delisted from the stock market. No voting on that then!

Similarly, the government passes a lot of regulations that it does not want to bother Parliament with, to outside NGO’s, probably because they feel that we as voters, apart from being surplus to requirements, would be too confused by the issues to make a sensible decision. Of course the other way that the politicians can sidestep the due process of democracy is to take a leaf out of John Reid’s (the Home Secretary) book. He changed the way our legal system worked within twenty four hours by simply writing to the Judges and asking (so he says) that they stop imprisoning guilty criminals.

Finally, as if this wasn’t enough, we in the UK have another non-democratic “big brother” showering us with laws and regulations like confetti at a wedding. It is called the EU. In my view the European Union structure is an ideal place for politicians who are tired of allowing themselves to be subjected to the vagaries of democracy. They sit in their ivory towers constructing regulations about matters in which they have no knowledge nor have been asked to interfere with, and churn these out at the rate of knots. Of course no-one outside of the EUSS (European Union Secret Society) is asked for opinion or allowed to cast judgement. Thus suddenly us mere mortals find ourselves waking up in the morning to find that we cannot have milk in our coffee because the EU have deemed that milk should not be cream in colour or something stupid like that.

The moral of this of course is that there is always someone worse off than you 🙂

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

Once again, Global Warming has me confused!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, much to my surprise, Global Warming, the UN, and “climate scientists” have me confused, once again.  As you may recall, the UN lapdog agency in charge of perpetuating the Global Warming hoax, the IPCC, is due to issue a new installment of its propaganda next week in Paris.  Supposedly, the top 2500 scientists involved in studying Climate Change, with the predetermined idea that Global Warming is true, are the ones writing this Great Work of Science, as Edited by Politicians for Who Knows What Purpose.  However, I just found this, New Climate Report Too Rosy, Experts Say?  So, are the experts writing the crap that is pushing us into accepting Climate Change and restructuring our entire civilization, or aren’t they?  Perhaps the Climate Change Zealots should get together and decide just who their Prophets are?  And perhaps, just perhaps, the rest of us should take a step back and wait for the internal religious conflict in the Church of Global Warming to reach a bloody conclusion before we buy into their scam?

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Davos conference, where the rich, the famous, and the rich and famous get together with top level politicos and decide the fate of us common people.  Well, the hot topic this year is Global Warming, what to do about it, and how to fleece the rest of us in the process.  As this article, High-altitude hedonism in Davos, points out, not only is it not all work, but the meeting provides an excellent example of just how two faced these Important people are:

“For all the grave talk about the dangers of climate change at the four-day meeting of corporate and political leaders, petrol-guzzling limousines and SUVs remained the transport mode of choice for the vast majority of participants.”

And, if that doesn’t make you want to see the High and Mighty stoned in the street:

“For the really “serious money,” the road was left behind altogether in favour of a helicopter entry and departure to the small ski resort high in the Swiss Alps. ”

There needs to be some climate change alright, but it doesn’t have anything to do with Global Warming, but rather about the Global Shafting we’re getting from the people in charge.

Hi Brit,

As I mentioned earlier, the Democrats ran on a platform of “changing the culture of corruption” in Congress.  What they didn’t mention was that, they meant changing who gets the payoffs.  This, A deal in the desert for Sen.

Shilpa Shetty wins

January 28, 2007

Hi Grit

It is over. A few moments ago Shilpa Shetty, the 31 year old Indian Actress walked out of the house for the final time, as the WINNER.  Shilpa, the target of racial abuse and bullying during her stay in the house, collects a £100,000 prize, collected 63% of the vote, beating Jermaine Jackson into second, and Dirk Benedict into third place. None of the three finalists were British.

Even in the post winning interview, Shilpa was magnanimous in victory, asking people to forget what had happened and thanking everyone in the UK for the opportunity she had been given. This despite having to sit through some awful comments that were made about her behind her back in the house by others.

Whether this will be the end of the incident remains to be seen, but at least Shilpa has acted like a lady and a deserving winner. Let’s hope that the media and everyone else takes her lead and lets the incident alone from now on, although I doubt with the English media that this will happen.

Anyway, congratulations to the Lady and to your two American contestants who did so well. America should be rightfully proud of the way that Jermaine and Dirk conducted themselves during this show. It is a shame some of the British contestants could not have acted more like the three finanlists.
