Global Warming is Dead, Big Al Sells Out to Al J.

Posted by greg2213 on January 2, 2013

Blink blink…

Wow…

Al Gore sells out to oil funded media giant Al Jazeera.

One’s mind boggles.

From WUWT:

Middle East “Big Oil” funded media outlet buys Al Gore’s CURRENT TV with plans to infiltrate offer the English Al Jazeera channel into American homes –  my Irony Meter pegged.

Will it be the “All Al” channel now?

Here’s the rest of this yummy story.

Update 1/3: Twitchy grabs some tweets having fun at Gore’s richly deserving expense.

Hilarious Headlines and Predictions

Posted by greg2213 on May 18, 2010

Ya know, when talking to people believing in “global warming,” aka “climate change,” I suppose the first question to ask would be something like, “So what, exactly, do you believe GW to be?” I got into a discussion with someone a while back and assumed him to be a Gore type believer. He actually turned out to be quite reasonable, though he disagreed with my “scam” remarks. .

There’s a group of people who believe there has been some degree of warming, but they’re far from Al Gore’s inconvenient fantasy. Then there’s the Al Gore crowd, of course, with its demands to make the world safe for Mr. Gore’s investments from the CO2 menace. And then there’s the crowd that makes Mr. Gore’s predictions seem to be perfectly sane, rational, reasonable… Such as the people responsible for this headline:

Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012

WUWT has the story, and calls it the Most idiotic global warming headline ever

The commenters point out that’s it’s 2007 article (with a 2010 date) and that the “paper” and the author are a bit “iffy.”  It’s also pointed out that since the cataclysm is so near that we should skip all the green exercises and enjoy ourselves, since it won’t make any difference (too little time to even get started planning for the mitigation.)

Of all the wacky, nonsense headlines about GW predictions over the years, this one has to be the wildest.  I’m sure that Mr. Gore would be proud of the hype, except for the fact that with that much human devastation the value of his investments would go way down.

But then without the warming hype there would be less grant money, less power for eco groups, fewer donations to green groups, elimination of the carbon trading scam, fewer tax revenues for our insanely greedy governments, etc. There’s just soooooo much money involved that it has to be real, right?

And then, there’s the crowd that wants to see massive depopulation of our little planet. I’m sure they’d be right with the cataclysm and cheer it on. As long as it didn’t affect them. Oh, is that remark too extreme? Then read this.

EUreferendum & IPCC Head Pachauri

Posted by greg2213 on January 25, 2010

EU Referendum, by Richard North,  has been running a series of articles laying out the money trails behind R.K. Pachauri, head of the UN IPCC. Let’s just say that Mr. P. is turning out to be very well connected and I’m sure he would like the EU R. to just disappear as Mr. North has been rather annoying…

EU R. Vs. The Black Knight

Pic found on the web. Should I add, “with apologies to Monty Python?”

Here’s Richard’s latest post on Pachauri: An endangered species and his listing of related articles. If you’re a bit skeptical of the EU you might want to read the rest of the blog, as well.

Extreme Predictions, CC as Religion, Voting

Posted by greg2213 on January 16, 2010

The alarmists and hysterics have been making wild predictions for years (much to the enjoyment of the AGW scientists, since it brings in more grant money.) In this way they are much like the quasi-religious cults and 2012 crowd which regularly predict the end of the world.

One would think that if Climate Change was a real science that the scientists would be trying to stomp out the Al Gore types with the same energy that they are using to stomp out the skeptics.

Anyway, when the predictions fail  they just move the date and start again with even more dire predictions.

Is it any wonder that some call CAGW a religion?

Now you have a chance to vote on the most extreme predictions, and there are some doozies, that have come out of the mouths, or pens, of the AGW cultists.  At The Air Vent:

Well we made it another year and I for one currently have half a foot of global warming in the drive. Despite these minor hardships, it’s time to choose which scientist, editor or politician deserves the newly invented yet widely coveted – Air Vent “MOST EXTREME PREDICTIONS FOR 2009!!”

Who had the right stuff, which luminary put their money and mouth on the line, who knew the future and was brave enough to tell all.

Vote here: Time to vote – 2009 Most Extreme Predictions!!

Update 3/26/10:  added links to religious stuff, above.

Official US Temperature Station

Posted by greg2213 on January 16, 2010

The US (and much of the rest of the world) has a set of temperature stations, made to exacting standards and carefully maintained. These are used to provide data for both weather calculations and governmental carbon trading and “tax them until they bleed” schemes, er… climate control policy.

Naysayers have been criticizing the stations for various reasons. Obviously these guys are a few marbles short of a full bag and should be ignored. Questioning the dogma, er.. scriptures, er… science of the IPCC (and Co.) is very poor form.

Here’s a pic of one of the official stations used by the NOAA, and probably the UN IPCC and in various hockey stick projections.I guess Al Gore was right, after all!
