Blame it on Zo. He got me thinking about this the other day when I listened to his rather brilliant rant.
Well, it seems that Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW ) – or Global Warming, or Climate Change, is back in the news again. There is a related post at American Thinker
and WattsUpWithThat on the latest travails of Obama’s coal-hating Czarina Lisa Jackson and her pretend friend “Richard Windsor”. Then we have the high priest of the Church of Gore – Big Al himself – making this astute pronouncement on Ellen Degenerate’s Show: “It turns out that plants need sunlight…” Gee Al, are you now admitting that plants need carbon dioxide for photosynthesis? Nah. There’s too much money yet to be made in the scam that is AGW.
And how is it I wonder that a person with a business degree (Al Gore) and a person with degrees in Eastern Religions and History (Heidi ‘Om Om’ Cullen) get more play than Chris Horner – who wrote the Political Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and the person most responsible for Lisa Jackson’s recent resignation (can you say mail fraud???); or a brilliant guy like Lord Monckton; or a real climatologist like Henrik Svensmark; getting short shrifted all the time. In the case of Henrik Svensmark and Lord Monckton it’s the borg that is “peer review” that is the problem.
You don’t have to be a school-trained scientist (just ask Heidi Cullen or Al Gore) to figure out that AGW/Climate Change is a scam. Proving once again, that a person who is motivated can learn anything. The UK’s Mail Online gave this great attribution to a non-school-trained amateur astronomer:
Asteroid 2012 DA14 was discovered last year by a Spanish dentist turned amateur astronomer and has been closely tracked ever since.
Just goes to show you that the only skill one needs upon graduation from school is the ability to learn.
Other AGW topics of late, include the aptly misnamed Super Storm Sandy (Super as compared to oh say The Long Island Express of 1938???), and the stupid assertions of the Weather Channel crew in the recent blizzard that they called NEMO. A sound scientific explanation won’t be found at the Weather Channel. You’ll have to go here to avoid the pseudo-science of the weather weenies.
Then in another development, we have Jim Hansen of NASA being arrested in DC along with Darryl (duh) Hannah protesting the Keystone Pipeline. This is a guy who once said of AGW skeptics “Some of this noise (real science) won’t stop until some of these (skeptic) scientists are dead” (pg 104 of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming).
But let’s get back to what the Goracle also said to Ellen on her show.
“Well, uh, yeah, some of them are seriously proposing, and I think it’s completely nuts.”
For once I agree with the bloviating a$$. Al is speaking about John Holdren who is by my accounts certifiable.
Fox News via the AP – The president’s new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth’s air.
John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed.
One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.
“It’s got to be looked at,” he said. “We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.”
Holdren also is the guy who co-authored a book called “Ecoscience” in 1977. In it he advocated things like forced abortions, mass sterilization and a “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens. You can read it for yourself here.
Yes indeed the crazies are definitely in charge and AGW/Climate Change is still the greatest scam ever perpetrated on the west since the theory of a flat earth.
To complete our utter contempt for the likes of Holdren, Hanson, Cullen and Big Al, here’s a little ditty courtesy of Ed Driscoll at PJMedia.
