Ferd Limpy turns 18 at the end of this month. While finishing high school and playing Ultimate Pocket Pool on weekends, he’s also suing the federal government in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

The Hellhole Palms, California, teen and four other juvenile plaintiffs want government officials to do more to prevent the risks of climate change — the dangerous storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, and food-supply disruptions that scientists warn will threaten their generation absent a major turnabout in global energy policy. Specifically, the students are demanding that the U.S. government start reducing national emissions of carbon dioxide by at least six percent per year beginning in 2013 and provide immunity from potential punishments for “Senior Skip Day” at HP High.

“I think a lot of young people realize that this is an urgent time, and that we’re not going to solve this problem just by riding our bikes more,” Limpy said between deep swallows from his mother’s breast.

Limpy drifted off to sleep in his mother’s lap, punctuating the moment with a loud fart and a deceptively small burp.  For lack of anything relevant to say, Mrs. Limpy stated that he and she needed some more “bonding time” because her baby was so stressed out by his concern over daily temperature swings.

The interview was cut short when Mrs. Limpy was engrossed in changing Ferd’s Depends™, saying “This is SO much harder to do when he’s got wood.”   A follow-up interview was hastily not arranged.

Ok, seriously though… Nearly the same damn thing really did happen.  Only the nursing and diaper changing likely only happens emotionally.   The kid and his little friends really do care about the environment and are totally committed to it, which is kind of sad since they haven’t got enough real-life experience to even feel passionate about anything for real yet.  These kids are going to have an interesting time when they see the schism between college (basically “high school” extended by four more years at a much higher cost) and the real world, which isn’t going to really give a rat’s ass about the self-centered little brat and his frivolous lawsuits.

Apologies if that seemed a lot cynical.  I’m in a mood.

But this is serious stuff, really.

This Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Wilkins, an Obama appointee, will hear arguments on the defendants’ motion to dismiss the complaint.

[ The court is the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in case they didn’t see that important enough to mention, which they didn’t.  – LK ]

While skeptics may view the case as little more than a publicity stunt, its implications have been serious enough to attract the time and resources of major industry leaders. Last month, Judge. Wilkins granted a motion to intervene in the case by the National Association of Manufacturers, joined by Delta Construction Company, Dalton Trucking Inc., Southern California Contractors Association, and the California Dump Truck Owners Association.

“At issue is whether a small group of individuals and environmental organizations can dictate through private tort litigation the economic, energy, and environmental policies of the entire nation,” wrote National Association of Manufacturers spokesman Jeff Ostermeyer in an email. Granting the plaintiffs’ demands, he added, “would carry serious and immediate consequences for industrial and economic productivity — increasing manufacturing and transportation costs and decreasing global competitiveness.” The manufacturers’ legal brief says the restrictions being sought “could substantially eliminate the use of conventional energy in this country.” It also argues that the plaintiffs haven’t proved they have a legal right to sue.

Cruel Wife wondered if someone was *gasp* … using… these kids for their agenda.  Well, that just doesn’t seem right.  Let’s see here…  oh.  Oh.  Oh, ok.  Remember how I said the kids don’t really have enough life experience yet?  Well, apparently some see that as great, because it makes for tools that earnestly believe what they are saying, even if it is bullshit, and that really sells well.

While teenagers serve as the public face of the lawsuit, the idea itself came from Julia Olson, an attorney based in Eugene, Oregon. Olson founded an organization called Our Children’s Trust after watching the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth while she was seven months pregnant.


Olson and other supporters of the suit believe that having kids as plaintiffs makes a particularly visceral appeal to adults to take action. Indeed, many of the adults involved said that their own children and grandchildren had inspired them. “Becoming a grandfather motivated me to speak out,” said climate scientist James Hansen, the director of the U.S. NASA Goddard Space Institute and the man who first brought Loorz and Olson together. Hansen, in his free time, is a conscientious objector to U.S. energy policy who has been arrested three times at peaceful protests.

In support of the children’s suit, Hansen has drawn up recommendations as to how the U.S. government can meet the greenhouse-gas reduction goals, through cuts in fossil-fuel-powered electricity and reforestation. “My talents are mainly in the sciences,” he said, “but it just became so clear that no one is doing anything to prevent what is becoming scientifically a very clear picture. I didn’t want my grandchildren to say that “Opa” (Dutch for “grandpa”) knew what was happening but didn’t do anything about it.”

There, SOYLENT GREEN, if you haven’t run with that tidbit (Hansen using kids to do his dirty work), would you, please?


Being born-again linked to more brain atrophy.

Whoa.  Say that again?

Being born-again linked to more brain atrophy.

According to the study, people who said they were a “born-again” Protestant or Catholic, or conversely, those who had no religious affiliation, had more hippocampal shrinkage (or “atrophy”) compared to people who identified themselves as Protestants, but not born-again.

The study is published online in PLoS ONE.

Oh, well, then.  We all know PLoS ONE is a fine upstanding… newspaper?  Magazine?  Proceeding?  Flyer?  Writing on a bathroom wall?

Well it must be valid research because after all, they published it, right?

Stormy stuff.

Took Cruel Wife 3 hours to drive home tonight.  I went to get the kids (took today off because I had more than enough hours worked last week) and it was cold and icy.  Really cold.  Really icy.

So anyway, it sucked.  I won’t go into all the reasons why.  Just take my word for it, it did.

Global warming is making Michigan a really damned cold place.  Make sense of that, willya?

Pearls Before Swine is a favorite comic of mine.  Pig and Rat just make me happy.  I’m putting this strip in to make a plug for Pastis.  May his readership swell.

Pig is my Hero.

Heroes should not be necessarily brave, or strong, or demi-god-like.  Heroes should have one requirement and that is that they must be steadfast.  Pig is steadfast and loyal to a fault – flying in the face of the Nobel committee.  Good for him.


The Daily News…

Angry that his teenage daughter was dating an older man, a German dad went to the 57-year-old’s home and castrated him with a bread knife, police said.

Helmut Seifert, originally from Russia, recently pled guilty to attacking Phillip Genscher, according to London’s Telegraph.

Good for you, man!  I… uh… I mean… that’s horrible!   He castrated the poor… no, I meant what I said, good on you, Helmut.

I saw it as my duty as a father. – Helmut Seifert

How can we contribute to his defense fund?


Punish the leaker, not the papers…?  WTF?

Punish the leakers, spare the press: WikiLeaks ushers in scary new age of journalism

There is a huge difference between freedom of the press and breaking the law.  I don’t know how journalism was able to get away with granting itself protection from the law but it’s not right.  You can’t claim that just because the other guy broke into an ATM and threw money in the street that you aren’t breaking the law when you pocket that money.

Global Warming is getting thick here in Michigan.

It’s only 8-9 inches.  But I hate this heavy wet snowy snow stuff.  I’m reduced to watching Cruel Wife run the snowblower – which REALLY gets under my skin.  It’s not right.  It’s like wimmen running a BBQ.


Terrible thing to be born w/o a spine because you get egged on by your friends to go kick some old guy’s ass, and get yours whupped instead.  Terrible thing to be beset upon like that just because you threatened an old guy with bodily harm several times.  What’s this racist world coming to?  Can’t a brother just kick some cracker’s ass for sayin’ something he don’t like the sound of?

Note:  That was meant to be sarcastically mocking.

Guess not.  Thanks Gaius at the magicnegrowatch.blogspot.com for posting that (and for Amusing Bunni for bringing it to light).

Read Gaius’ mission statement:

I am not a Republican, I am a Conservative and I have this never ending nagging distrust of liberals, particularly white liberals. White liberals are a bunch of phony socially retarded trifling people who lack even the most basic form of common sense. My blog is my tiny little weapon against liberal nonsense and stupidity. If you find this blog offensive, then you are exactly the type of individual who needs to be reading it. If you have the guts to confront a black man who does not follow the liberal prescription for success in America by bitching and whining about how much the government should “care” then make your voice heard. It’s easy to visit and hang out on a blog where only people of one particular political persuasion congregate and where your narrow little myopic view is appreciated and accepted. If you are a liberal and particularly if you are white try and educate yourself to something other than what you were taught at some university by some idiot Birkenstock wearing professor. All black people don’t think alike I’m living proof. Contact me at negrovillesnoop@yahoo.com

I do so like a guy who isn’t afraid to be who the hell he wants to be!  And I am doubly happy that he goes out of his way to make the distinction between Republican and Conservative.  Well played, Sir, well played.


We’ll do it in the spirit of bipartisanship unless you disagree with us in which case we’ll sink you.

In the course of unveiling Obama’s new health reform proposal on a conference call with reporters this morning, White House advisers made it clearer than ever before: If the GOP filibusters health reform, Dems will move forward on their own and pass it via reconciliation.

The assertion, which is likely to spark an angry response from GOP leaders, ups the stakes in advance of the summit by essentially daring Republicans to try to block reform.

“The President expects and believes the American people deserve an up or down vote on health reform,” White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said on the call.  –   theplumline.whorunsgov.com

“The global warming movement as we have known it is dead,” the brilliant analyst Walter Russell Mead says in his blog on The American Interest. It was done in by a combination of bad science and bad politics.  – Margaret Wente reporting in the Globe and Mail

Lies.  Deception. Misdirection.  Retraction.  Denial of denial.  Recriminations.  Throwing-under-the-bus.  Suicidal thoughts.

This looks like any of my family reunions.

But no, it is the global warming debacle.

Professor Phil Jones said in an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times that he had thought about killing himself “several times”. He acknowledged similarities to Dr David Kelly, the scientist who committed suicide after being exposed as the source for a BBC report that alleged the government had “sexed up” evidence to justify the invasion of Iraq.

Then he sings a tale of woe.

He remains at risk, still receiving death threats from around the world including two in the past week: “I was shocked. People said I should go and kill myself. They said that they knew where I lived. They were coming from all over the world.

Well color me surprised.  I don’t know anyone that gets upset about folks changing the course of their world through force and lies in exchange for power, money, and prestige.

If this were really about global warming he would have used the interview to talk about the poor polar bears, the peruvian cocaine-snorting kiwi, and the lebanese crapping lizard and how they’re all going to die horribly when the atmosphere begins to spontaneously burst into balls of fire.  But instead, he talks about his science, the FOI, and those who are targeting him.  He doesn’t sound like a true believer.

Avatar sans Cameron.

Why am I posting bs filler material tonight?  Because I’m exhausted but I want to let you know that I’m not dead or worse yet a democrat.  Far better to be a burnout on skid row than that.

Avatar in this context has nothing to do with James Cameron.  I haven’t even seen the movie yet.  No, in this case it has to do with making a gravatar – a globally recognized avatar if you haven’t already hit the snooze button.

Whattapainintheass.  But it’s done.  Upper right corner of this blog and attached to my idiot comments everywhere in the moronosphere.

Anyways, moving right along, the climate bedwetters still deny that there’s an elephant in the room in spite of crap like this. And this.

But that is all stuff cbullitt has been throwing up for months now.  I’m just remarking on it because the majors are still not picking it up and reporting it like they should be.  In fact, I am surprised that the Guardian is in front of most majors here in the US in terms of coverage.

Note:  Snarky Basterd pointed out that I was completely full of shite in negatively characterizing The Guardian as I did in this instance.  Let it be so noted.  I won’t change it so’s you all have proof that sometimes, once in a great many years, I have been known to make a mistake.

I’m just whining and railing against reality today.  Tomorrow will be better.

Terrible what they allow on the innernets these days.  Like voting for “Horror Movies’ Hottest Vixens”.  Terrible.  Disgusting.  Whatever you do, don’t go here because you don’t want to see scantily-clad pics of Megan Fox or Kate Beckinsale.  There.  You have been warned.


In the Salt Lake Tribune:

A downtown protest of the climate change talks in Copenhagen became a victim of Wednesday’s snowstorm.

“Not many people showed up because of the blizzard conditions,” said organizer Clea Major, an international studies student at the University of Utah.


Fox News had a funny list.  Nine things the MSM missed in 2009:

  • Van Jones – Obama’s Green Jobs Advisor*
  • ACORN – Obama’s roots organization
  • John Holdren – Obama’s Compulsory Abortion Science Advisor*
  • CLIMATEGATE  – face it, when Jon Stewart scoops you, you look pretty bad
  • NEA-GATE – Using the NEA to promote Obama’s political agenda
  • Chas Freeman – Obama’s appointee to chair the Nat’l Int. Council – conflicts of interest w/ China and Saudi
  • Tea Parties – the MSM didn’t ignore these, they openly attacked them
  • Kevin Jennings – Safe Schools Advisor* to Obama, suggested porn for 7th graders
  • Demo-Stim-Gate – Democratic districts have received twice as much stimulus as Republican districts

What could possibly be the reason for so many missed pieces of news?

Going to keep it short since the kids wore us out.  They were so keyed up that nothing would chill them out all day long.

I just want to point out that AGW is a real phenomenon.

2/3rds of the US is now blanketed in Global Warming.  Looks like Wisconsin, Minnesota, N. & S. Dakota, Montana, and a few other spots got as much as 30 inches or more of Global Warming.

Dallas, Texas got it’s first Global Warming in 80 years.


Obama apologists (read: ass lickers) are busy making articles meant to buoy Obama up.

I know, you may be thinking “Geez, Lemur King, it’s Christmas – be charitable.”

I am being charitable.

There are several fundamental reasons for Mr Obama’s problems, and they will persist in 2010. First, he and his aides failed to anticipate just how brutal the recession would be and the devastating scale of job losses that have swept America.

As a result polls strongly suggest he has over interpreted his mandate. US voters are obsessed with two things: jobs, and the exploding deficit. It is now so huge – $1.4 trillion and counting – that it has become a dominant issue.

Here’s where the BS gets a bit thick.

Last year, many voters backed Mr Obama believing they were sending to the White House a left-of-centre pragmatist who would transform Washington by bridging the partisan divide. Instead, many have been unnerved – even frightened – by Mr Obama’s belief that gargantuan short-term spending is the long-term answer to America’s economic woes.

Must… find… dramamine.  Must… get… barf… bag…

  1. “Many” means less than half.  Sure, a lot of people were stupid enough to believe Mr. Teleprompterlympics but a lot were voting for anyone who could not possibly be anything like Bush.
  2. What he got was far from a mandate.  Nothing at all like it.
  3. Obama and his aids have failed to anticipate just about everything except for what they needed for their White House social functions.
  4. “Left of Center”???  Geez, that is like saying sewers can be odiferous.  He is the furthest damn thing from center that you can possibly get, and he’s a thug of a leftist at that.


Damn I hope they find someone to adopt this kid.  Moral flexibility towards people of this sort should be instinctive on just about anyone’s part.  Two month olds should not have 20 broken bones and a fractured skull.

Dedicated to LC Aggie Sith over at Hookers and Booze because LCAS’s enthusiasm was the impetus I needed to do this graphic… recognize it, even.

Here ya go, Aggie.  Contrast is low so it doesn’t look like much until you do open it.

Gets bigger if you click on it.

Sidebar ready (or shovel-ready) is a smaller size… 237 by something-or-other, but I don’t know if I’m going to add it.  It’s okayyyy, but… to me… meh.  It loses a lot when squeezed.  I’ll try it.  Look over at the right, see what you think.

You, Constant Reader, will help decide what goes in the middle of this front page article…  I am currently taking suggestions.  Anything that mocks AGW and the BedWetters.

Later… And a happy nod to cbullitt for his contribution (read the “New Study” article).

Also, the “Nostradamus” quote is something I read in Gary Sutton’s article on The Fiction of Climate Science.


Can you get any luckier than this?  I think not.


Does anyone here shed a tear for a gambler who says the casino’s are at fault (a “plot”, he says) when he has gambled away $127 MILLION dollars?


I stopped over at Weasel’s place (Weasel Times – sweasel.com) and I realize Weas is stealing it from elsewhere but it’s just the way she said it… made my shoot tea out my nose.  She said:

I am totally stealing “I am so far passed f*cked, it would take take the light from f*cked 10 years to reach me.”

The alternate title on Drudge was “Who is to blame?”   The link takes you to NPR’s article titled “Answers Sought On Fort Hood Suspect’s Link To Imam”.

At what point in our nation’s history did we start asking stupid questions like this?  Who is to blame???  The ass who pulled the trigger and killed a bunch of good people, that’s who.

Let’s stop thinking “blame” beyond this guy and his actions.  Let’s then ask “Hmmm.  What might we do in the future to avoid this?”

I know the NPR article did not ask that question but I also know damn well there are politicians, reporters, the president, and generals all asking these questions as they try to assign blame and responsibility.  It starts and ends with the guy who pulled the trigger.

Now how do you make sure it doesn’t happen again?  This is a very bad mindset that we’ve slipped into – where we don’t recognize that people are responsible for their own actions and that not everything can be made safe.

Update 2:

Obama says Hassan may have cracked under the stress.

You know, I’ve been under obscene amounts of stress in my life, and I have yet to think that getting a gun and killing my buddies and co-workers was anything other than vile.  Stress does not make you contact Al-Qaeda.  Stress does not make you converse with violence-minded imams.

No, you have to be a special kind of asshole to do this.  Stop playing race issues, Obama.  White cops “acted stupidly” and now minority murderers are simply “stressed”.


Was looking for some vector graphics tonight because making flourishes isn’t exactly worse than scrubbing toilets but it isn’t much better, either.

I came across some that were for nearly $100.  “Yoiks!” I said.  But then I saw that they were animated flourishes that not only got drawn over time but also changed shape and orientation.  Oh how very nice they were.


Looks like Global Warming just keeps marching on.  Get thee behind me, you inconvenient truth, you.

According to NOAA…

National Overview:

Temperature Highlights – October

  • The average October temperature of 50.8°F was 4.0°F below the 20th Century average and ranked as the 3rd coolest based on preliminary data.
  • For the nation as a whole, it was the third coolest October on record. The month was marked by an active weather pattern that reinforced unseasonably cold air behind a series of cold fronts. Temperatures were below normal in eight of the nation’s nine climate regions, and of the nine, five were much below normal. Only the Southeast climate region had near normal temperatures for October.
  • Statewide temperatures coincided with the regional values as all but six states had below normal temperatures. Oklahoma had its coolest October on record and ten other states had their top five coolest such months.
  • Florida was the only state to have an above normal temperature average in October. It was the sixth consecutive month that the Florida’s temperature was above normal, resulting in the third warmest such period (May-October).
  • The three-month period (August-October) was the coolest on record for three states: Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Five other states had top five cool periods: Missouri (2nd), Iowa (3rd) , Arkansas (5th) , Illinois (5th) and South Dakota (5th) . Every climate division in Kansas (nine) and Nebraska (eight) recorded a record cool such period.
  • For the year-to-date (January – October) period, the contiguous U.S. temperature ranked 43rd warmest. No state had a top or bottom ten temperature value for this period.

Did you catch the importantest part?

It was the sixth consecutive month that the Florida’s temperature was above normal

Refute THAT, you naysayers.

New global hysteria to nudge Globular Worming out of the spotlight.  It’s just as valid of a theory.  We are going to see a full solar eclipse.  Doom!  Destruction!  Death!  Mega-wedgies!

three-quarter partial eclipse.

Three-quarter partial eclipse.

This week’s solar eclipse has Indian astrologers predicting violence and turmoil across the world, AFP reported.

In Hindu mythology, the two demons Rahu and Ketu are said to “swallow” the sun during eclipses. It takes the life-giving life and causes food to become inedile and water undrinkable, AFP reported.

Mothers-to-be are told to stay inside so their baby doesn’t develop birth defects and some are worried a major world catastrophe will take place.

Raj Kumar Sharma, a Mumbai astrologer, told AFP, “some sort of attack by (Kashmiri separatists) Jaish-e-Mohammad or Al Qaeda on Indian soil” and a devastating natural disaster in Southeast Asia.

But, scientists and astronomers are trying to downplay the claims, saying Wednesday’s eclipse is a nature occurrence.


While threats aren’t the thing to be spouting, someone has to see how ridiculous this is.

An Ohio man, fed up with deceptive junk mail, made the mistake of losing his temper while on the phone with a St. Louis company pitching an extended auto-service contract. Now he finds himself behind bars, where he is charged with making a terrorist threat.

According to court documents, Charles W. Papenfus, 43, allegedly told a sales representative during a May 18 telephone call that he would burn down the building and kill the employees and their families. He was indicted for making a terrorist threat, a Class D felony; and he could be sentenced to up to four years in prison if convicted.

But this boils my blood:

Authorities would not discuss facts of the case, but one official said that business practices of a telemarketing firm shouldn’t be a factor.

“I think all sorts of people get frustrated with all sorts of businesses,” said Ed Postawko, chief warrant officer in the Circuit Attorney’s Office. “The solution is to don’t patronize that business, it’s not to break the law. … Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

And why shouldn’t telemarketing business practices be a factor? They use my phone (that I pay for) without my permission to do their job and disturb me in my own home.

Nah, nothing wrong here.

The original post is below this update from the News of the Soul-Challenged files:

The family of a U.S. Marine is outraged after a Michigan amusement park insisted on charging the veteran admission to enter the park — despite his being a quadriplegic — according to a newspaper report.

Heather Lovell told the Grand Rapids Press that she had been at the park acting as a chaperone for a children’s group, and her fiance, Joshua Hoffman, was just meeting up with her there briefly before she took him to his stepbrother’s graduation.

But even after she explained that Hoffman had been paralyzed in 2007 by a sniper’s bullet in Iraq and is unable to speak, let alone go on rides, the park insisted both Hoffman and his nurse could not join her in the park without paying, Lovell told the Press

“It was really just outrageous,” she said. “He is not physically going on any rides.”

Michigan’s Adventure General Manager Camille Jourden-Mark said park policy requires even non-participants to pay the admission fee.

We just can’t be in a position of picking and choosing. We have grandparents (who pay admission) that come in our park every day that have no intention of ever going on a ride,” she told the Grand Rapids Press.

Jourden-Mark later offered the family complimentary passes for Hoffman and a guest, the Press reported. Lovell said she has not decided whether they will use the passes.

Cruel Wife remarked “Well, I had been thinking of trying them out.  Nothing like a bunch of negative publicity…”

In another article:

She noted the park offers one free admission with a paid admission for service members each Memorial Day. Jourden-Mark said park staff were unaware of Hoffman’s condition.

What?  Were the park staff blind as well as cretins?

Where the hell is the respect and gratitude owed to our veterans and servicemen?  If I were a restaurant owner, a lot of those guys would be getting a complimentary meal.  And yes, you can be in the business of picking and choosing when common sense is a valid consideration.

If you’d like to voice your opinion of Camille Jourden-Mark’s attitude, please feel free to contact Michigan’s Adventure.  Yes, they’ve already tried to backtrack and offer complimentary passes, but if your corporate atmosphere is such that you allow workers of this low of caliber, then it means the lesson needs to be driven home – and very hard.

Fair to say, I’m biased against anyone who feels a need to hyphenate their name, so the manager above… she’s already on my list of people to look askance at. Oh yes, apparently Michigan’s Adventure does pick and choose as there is no admission fee for toddlers 2 years and younger.  -LK

**** Original Posting Follows****

Listening to the Diane Rhem Show on NPR (know thine enemy, I say).

Climate bedwetters show no signs of relenting – for the earth will heat up by 11C in the next 100 years.  Oceans will flood so as to make Noah’s Ark water levels look like a puddle.  Crops will fail.  Everyone will die of thirst.  Dogs and cats will cohabitate.  Copulate, even.  Horrors.


Rhem had multiple guests – program synopsis and dramatis personae as follows:

Impact of Climate Change in the U.S.

A new White House report finds every region of the U.S. is experiencing disruptions from climate change. A discussion of how climate change may be already be affecting the nation’s water, transportation, eco-systems and human health.

Dr. John Holdren, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

John Podesta, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress, former chief of staff to President Clinton, and author of “The Power of Progress.”

Stephen Moore, is a member of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board.

James Connaughton, Executive Vice President for Corporate Affairs of Public and Environmental Policy for Constellation Energy. He was former chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Stephen Moore took exception to several key points made by one of the other guests (Holdren, I think) – (1) vast majority of scientists believe global warming is real, (2) there is a huge preponderance of irrefutable data proving global warming is real, and (3) presupposing that #2 is true, that there is a huge number of predominantly negative results of global warming.

At this point Diane Rhem cuts him off and supporting Holdren, by fiat declares that global warming is conclusive and says that she does not want a debate on her show.

So why would you invite a dissenting guest if you are not going to allow him to rebut what he views as misinformation?

Holdren (I think) then went on in a patronizing tone, stating that in any scientific body there will be deniers.

Moore was lucky enough to be able to protest the patronizing tone conveyed by the choice of the term “deniers”.  This is a thinly veiled ad hominem attack.  Since when should dissenting views be given the nuanced term “deniers”?  When one is on a biased program on a biased radio station and being lobbed softballs for an hour, of course.

For teensy-tiny smidgen of a miniscule bit of background:

“I happen to believe that global warming is the biggest scam of the last two decades.” – Stephen Moore

Later a good point is made – years ago the “scientific consensus” was that the earth was cooling and that this would have disastrous effects.  Now, we have a “scientific consensus” that the earth is warming and this will have disastrous effects.  Can you really have it both ways?

Sound off on any of this if you like…

They say that the sex trade at the climate conference was booming.

The global climate challenge may have been on the daytime agenda during the recent World Business Summit climate conference in Copenhagen, but in the evenings many businessmen, politicians and civil servants are reported to have availed themselves of the capital’s prostitutes.

It certainly is no great surprise given the dry-humping they are going to give the world over Globular Worming.

By the way, could someone please call these folks out when they switch terminology to hide their agenda?  “Climate change” vs. “Global Warming”.


Climate Time-Bomb Delayed.

Whew!  That’s good… it buys more time to tweak the model until we can justify hysterical hyperventilating again.


Whatever these guys are smoking, you’d think they’d want to grow more of it in a warmer carbon-laden climate.

Paint all roofs white to help global warming?

I wasn’t aware that the requirements to be a presidential adviser included “able to smoke massive joints in under 20 minutes…. dude”.
