Well, that's a new way to look at it

Apparently, if you have doubts about the validity of the AGW theory, you might as well believe that O.J. Simpson didn't murder anyone.  No, really.

That's what this guy says, anyway. Note that the word "scientist" doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere in his bio. Funny, that.

Oh, too bad, so sad

You know, I don't begrudge anybody who makes a shitload of money...as long as they do it in a way that's legit:

The latest blow to those urging action against global warming came last week, when Yvo de Boer said he would step down as United Nations climate chief, two months after 193 countries meeting in Copenhagen failed to reach a binding agreement on curbing greenhouse gases.

[...]

The resignation may reduce the possibility that a worldwide market aimed at reducing carbon emissions is within reach, said Trevor Sikorski, an emissions analyst for Barclays Capital in London.

“It’s a sad day for the carbon market, and we’ll be lucky to get somebody with Yvo’s dedication and hard work as a successor,” Sikorski said.

UN carbon credits have fallen 13 percent on the European Climate Exchange in London since the start of the Copenhagen meeting, which was aiming to set limits for emissions after 2012. The NEX index tracking shares of 86 companies involved in clean energy has tumbled 12 percent since the talks.

You know what? I hope you all lose your fucking shirts, you fucking dishonest pirate bastards. And I'll laugh and laugh if you lose your private jets, limousines, and mansions, too.

You bet your money and credibility on a fucking scam, and you lost. It's not a sad day. It's a fucking great day when something like this happens, you fucking wealth-destroying shitheels. And it'll be an even better day if a bunch of you (including that fattest of fat fucking hypocrites, Algore) end up in jail, though I'm not holding my breath.

You. Fucking. Lose. Go to hell, where it's plenty warm.

Tilting at windmills

If you're in PA, I'm sure you're well aware of Fast Eddie Rendell's push for "green" energy in PA and "green jobs", in particular, a big push for windmills.  Of course you're all aware that green power facilities usually require massive subsidies just to get built.  cbullitt notes that Fast Eddie's going around to different cities and pimping Porkulus and green jobs, and the crock it is.  And I'm not totally shitting on windmills as energy sources, there's no doubt that there are places where there's good steady wind, and putting up a windmill is actually a clever way to produce some energy.  But that's not what this is, most of this is feelgood stuff, stealing from Peter to pay Paul, and an excuse to grow government and suppress enterprise, and it'll take a looooong time to even break even on the investment, if you even do break even.  It really is neat technology, but it just has limited application in the broader energy grid.

But I thought I'd note too, right now we're producing a traditional source of energy in PA, and no, it's not coal, though certainly we still have coal mining in the state.  It's been discovered that are major deposits of natural gas in PA, in particular in Northcentral PA.  We've seen a lot of people locally working natural gas extraction, or supporting, supplying or advising, this is energy producers themselves, contractors, subcontractors, and probably consultants too.  The Texas accent is usually a dead giveaway.  In fact, saw a Halliburton (ZOMGTEHEVUL!!!1!1eleventy!1) truck a few days ago.  And let me tell you, if you let these guys set up shop on your property, they compensate you very well, and from what I'm hearing, most, if not all agree to take on costs of environmental damage on your property in their contracts.  There's no doubt that the gas producers probably see something for setting up shop here, but I doubt there seeing what Fast Eddie's windmill producers are seeing.

More than Teddy Kennedy?

So far Global Warmmongering has killed at least 4 people in Australia.

The Aussie PM decided to save Gaia by subsidizing foil insulation in people's houses.
So little known fact, foil insulation can electrocute people.
Well, little known to Aussie PMs.
Electricians formally warned Environment Minister Peter Garrett that metal roof insulation could cost lives months before he banned it.

Oh, so maybe it wasn't little known. Well, now that people are dying and there's an uproar,
Mandatory training starts on Friday - almost a year after the program began, despite a string of warnings that untrained installers were dangerous and reports of homes catching fire because of poorly installed pink batts.

Yay! I mean, it's not his fault. Just because he was warned and stuff.
After all, he's a lefty. His biggest problem is that he cares too much.

What's a few dead installers between friends? Bah. Working class drudges. There's plenty more where they came from. Too many if you ask your average global warmmonger.

Via Tim Blair, who's been covering this for a couple weeks. I've been expecting it to be covered here but nobody's touching it.
I guess all the revelations about global worming "science" has been good for at least one person.

Stop giving up wine for Lent. You're Killing The Planet™!

Are you wondering what to give up for Lent?  Actually, I rather hope you're not wondering what to give up for Lent.  You should know that by now.  But, in case you're way behind in deciding what to cut back on this year, the Catholic Church in the UK has a great suggestion for you:

Carbon fasting!  (Typing that phrase was literally, actually painful.  Part of my brain may have actually ceased to function.)

Seriously

The Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, and the Bishop of Liverpool, James Jones, are among those calling for a carbon fast for Lent -- a period ahead of Easter which Christians traditionally consider a time of penance and reflection -- which begins on Wednesday.

As well as spending a day without using technology such as mobile phones or iPods, the 46 daily suggestions also include eating by candlelight, cutting meat and vegetables thinner so they cook faster and flushing the toilet less often.

"Instead of giving up chocolate for Lent, why not fast for justice ... to help those suffering from the effects of climate change," said Jones.

So, uh, don't flush the toilet for Jesus!  Or something.

Why "going green" is great for China

There's a lot more to going green than just separating your glass, plastic, and paper waste from the rest of it.  You've got to buy fancy lightbulbs, and insulate your house, and maybe install some solar panels, and you definitely need to get some sort of green car.  (Unless you're Al Gore or Prince Charles.  Then, you should fly private jets all over the world and waste tons of electricity.  It's good for the planet.  Shut up.)

And, as we all know, Teh Won is pretty damn sure that the way to fix the economy is green jobs.  After all, it's the way of the future, those evil oil companies are run by fat-cat capitalist assholes, and you need to have some sort of a political agenda to push when your "stimulus bill" has stimulated us straight to double-digit unemployment. 

How could going green possibly go wrong?

Well ... a couple of ways, actually.  (All emphasis, naturally is mine.)

Now rare earth elements with exotic names such as europium and tantalum hold the key to hybrid cars, wind turbines and crystal-clear TV displays - that is, if a looming supply shortage doesn't stop innovation in its tracks.

Rare earth elements, called "rare earths" by those who use and study them, often prove irreplaceable in green technologies and high-tech consumer products. Yet the world's production of rare minerals relies mainly upon China, and the Chinese government warned last year that its own rising demand will soon force it to stop exporting the precious elements.

"Countries and companies that have or plan to develop industries that need rare earth minerals to make products are concerned about China's growing consumption, which they fear will eliminate China's exports of rare earths," said W. David Menzie, chief of the international minerals section at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

China has also encouraged companies that use rare earths to locate their manufacturing facilities in China, Menzie told TechNewsDaily. But some companies fear moving because of concerns about intellectual property protection, he added.

Deposits of rare earth elements exist in the United States, Canada and other countries. But only China's government supports the mining and refining industries capable of processing the resources from start to finish.

Brilliant.  Fucking brilliant.  So, not only does China own our goddamn debt, they also have, essentially, a world-wide monopoly on mining and refining the very elements that are essential to our essential green jobs push?  Are you fucking kidding me? 

I have a few choice words on this subject.

Oh Great! Now The Hurricane Data Is Wrong?

You know, something tells me that the whole IPCC dataset is a bit mistaken. But that's just me.

They invite abuse, it would be impolite not to give it to them.

Now some people think I'm being harsh on global warmmongers who, finally, sort of admit that maybe they've been wrong.
I'm of the opinion that they deserve far more abuse than I'll give them.
Case in point.

Bolt and Blair were right all along. The whole AGW enterprise was a political movement, and was rotten to the core.

The "Blair" in there is Tim Blair. Ausse maker fun of Global Warmmongers extraordinaire. He's like an Aussie Ace.
So the response?
Perhaps, but if so they were so thru prejudice and not observation.

How can you be polite to people like that?
Why be polite to people like that?

Aha! I Knew I Was Saving The Earth By Eating So Much Meat!

Fuck you, vegetarians. Fuck you and your smug self righteousness with a soy block soaked in bacon drippings. Fuck you for lecturing me that eating meat was bad for me. Fuck you for trying to push that "healthy lifestyle" fuckhelmet of fucking fuckitudinally fucked up fuckheadedness upon us. And fuck you for killing jobs and raping your beloved Gaia more than us knuckle dragging meat eaters ever will do.

The Cranfield University study found that switching from British-bred beef and lamb to meat substitutes imported from abroad such as tofu and Quorn would increase the amount of land cultivated, raising the risk of forests being destroyed for fields.

Production methods can be energy intensive and the final products tend to be highly processed, the report, which was commissioned by the environmental group WWF, found.

The researchers concluded: 'A switch from beef and milk to highly refined livestock product analogues such as tofu could actually increase the quantity of arable land needed to supply the UK.'

They also warned that a significant increase in the number of vegetarians in Britain from the current total of 3.7million could cause  the collapse of the country's livestock industry and result in meat production moving to countries with few regulations to protect uncultivated land {since when did weenies care about jobs?-ed}.

Donal Murphy-Bokern, one of the report's authors and a former farming and food science coordinator at the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs, told The Times: 'For some people, tofu and other meat substitutes symbolise environmental friendliness but they are not necessarily the badge of merit {and absolution from affluence guilt so many weenies have today-ed}that people claim.

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH!1!1!11!!!

*GOUGH*

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAA!11!!!

Stupid fucking hippies.

Now, I do not wish to include in my mockery those who are required by health issues to eat a certain diet. But the rest of you vegetarians can go choke on a syphillis soaked sack of senile sausage for all I care

IPCSunk

The hits keep on coming for the IPCC and their reliance on flimsy evidence for catastrophic claims.
Quote
TREES will not uproot themselves and embark on blood-soaked killing sprees by 2035, global warming experts have admitted.
...snip...
"It appears the claim was not based on new data or field research but on that bit with the angry, talking trees in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
...snip...
There is a supplementary source, and yes it is that bit with the angry, talking trees in The Wizard of Oz.

Surprisingly enough, they're standing by their prediction that trees will mate with little people bringing forth a new, super-race of Gaians. (note: Link not safe for work.... or sanity, or stomach. Contains graphic depictions of hobbits fucking a tree).

First link via Tim Blair, second link via some blog nobody reads (thank goodness).

Damn you Gorequemada! (shakes fist)

Okay, so DC had a freaking blizzard (pics below the fold of the view out of my window 3 days later) and the Federal Gov't has been closed for two days.
Yes, they closed yesterday and today. Yesterday I agreed with, too many people didn't have power and the roads were really, really bad.
Today? It would just be a pain in the neck. Although, the buses still aren't running regularly and most streets are still just packed snow. But that's another shitload of money down the chute.
But that's not the point.
Another blizzard is on the way. Possibly another 10-20 inches.
And why? Why are we the target of every snow cloud out there?
MoFo global warmmongering bastids!
The blizzard (s) is delaying their pronouncement
“More and more, Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards, including sea-level rise, longer growing seasons, changes in river flows, increases in heavy downpours, earlier snowmelt and extended ice-free seasons in our waters. People are searching for relevant and timely information about these changes to inform decision-making about virtually all aspects of their lives,” the release says.

Fuck you. You know? Fuck you.

It's hard out there for a climate scientist fraud

Phil Jones, one of the main douchebags at the center of the Climategate scandal apparently considered committing suicide over the whole thing. He's been getting some nasty emails urging him to do just that, and while I disapprove of that sort of shit, I had forgotten about this little detail from the leaked emails between Jones and his asshole colleagues...

In another email, the death of a leading climate change sceptic is described as "cheering news".
What goes around comes around, fuckstick.

Oh, and...
Prof Jones said he was knocked sideways by the worldwide outrage that followed the leaking of the emails.
No, he was knocked sideways (and, I hope, fucked sideways) by the leaking of the emails because it exposed him and his buddies as some of the biggest, most expensive frauds in recent history.

Oh, and watch the widdle baby cry some more...
“I am just a scientist. I have no training in PR or dealing with crises," he said.
Um, first of all, you're emphatically not a scientist. A scientist starts with a hypothesis and looks for data to confirm that. He or she doesn't make shit up to confirm that hypothesis. And a scientist certainly doesn't collude with colleagues to hide evidence or fudge data that contradicts his hypothesis. Who does that? Fucking liars and cheats, that's who.

Oh, and you don't know anything about crises? What the fuck have you been peddling throughout your entire dishonest career? You fucking took a made-up crisis and turned it into a goldmine of international research grant money, and now that you've been exposed as a fucking phony, we're supposed to feel some sympathy for you?

I hope you don't commit suicide, mostly because I'd rather see you in prison.

One a day plus Irony

Awww, poor global warmmonger.
So one of the tools from the email scam is whining about how he was thinking about killing himself because of the pitchforked crowds.
Eh, just so-so funny.
But then he gets over the top funny.
“I am just a scientist. I have no training in PR or dealing with crises.”

Hahahaha... oh wait, he's serious.
Tool.
The whole point of that deal is that he was acting as a PR agent instead of as a scientist, he had to hide the truth because recent data would just confuse idiots who think the temperature of the Earth has something to do with the Sun.
And all of a sudden he can't deal with a crisis? After years of bleating about the crisis and then demanding $billions to fix it?
Tool.

What were they smoking?

Via Drudge, we see this article about another ridiculously stupid, global warmmongering claim.
The UN claimed half the Netherlands was below sea level, it's around a quarter.
I have to stick up for them.
I've been to Amsterdam a few times, I know what they were smoking.
It'ssome nasty, green, sticky shit. Hell, after a couple space cakes you'd think you were underwater too.

Consensus!

Via Vodkapundit we find this article by Mark Steyn on our Global Warmmogering friends at the IPCC.

Drip, Drip and Drip.
No, not the revelations of lying by global warmmongers that we keep seeing, it appears to be the names of three people who wrote all the worst global warmmongering "predictions" for that groundbreaking (and truth-breaking) IPCC report.
Quote:
Donna Laframboise, a colleague of mine from the glory days at the National Post, did a simple search of the online version of the IPCC report and discovered dozens of citations of the WWF. It’s the sole source cited for doomsday predictions of glacier melt not only in the Himalayas but also the Andes and the Alps, as well as for a multitude of other topics, from coral reefs to avalanches.


Consensus!
