Robert Murphy on Peter Gleick’s faked Heartland memo: “oozing absurdities.”
I rather badly want to have been the person who first came up with that phrase, in fact. I feel that I need to get this on the record. Anyway, if you were looking for a recap on the entire didn’t-turn-out-as-intended climate alarmist attack on the Heartland Institute by – well, I suppose that it has not been proven in a court of law that | Read More »
More on the Peter Gleick Fakegate Memo.
This is pretty good stuff of Megan McArdle, re Peter Gleick‘s own-goal sabotage of climate change advocates by disseminating/allegedly creating a fake Heartland memo on its global warming strategies (not to mention his confessed identity theft): When skeptics complain that global warming activists are apparently willing to go to any lengths–including lying–to advance their worldview, I’d say one of the movement’s top priorities should be | Read More »
Rasmussen and the Global Warming Liars.
Hey, don’t look at me. Or Rasmussen Reports. We’re just reporting results. Object to the American people: The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-two percent (22%) don’t think | Read More »
Obama’s drilling bribe is insultingly small.
(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) Does he really think that this is sufficient to peel off cap-and-tax opposition? Let’s do some strategic bolding: The Obama administration’s plan adopts some drilling proposals floated by President George W. Bush near the end of his tenure, including opening much of the Atlantic and Arctic Coasts. Those proposals were challenged in court on environmental grounds and set aside by President | Read More »
Warmingists shiver in Copenhagen.
No, really: those poor folks are stuck with bundling up and marching against global warming in what has become stereotypically freezing weather. Although some of them have found a way to keep warm via physical activity: Hundreds of youths dressed in black threw bricks and smashed windows as at least 30,000 people demonstrated in the centre of the city as world leaders debate global warming. | Read More »
Phrase of the day: ‘Climategate Denier.’
As per Simon Scowl of Deceiver.com, who uses it with malice aforethought against Cubslayer Gore. The context: Gore claimed that the Climategate emails were ten years old, and the CNN guy called him on it right away, and Gore… said nothing further about it. Simon Scowl: His financial and psychological investment in this crap is way too deep for him to acknowledge such, ahem, inconvenient | Read More »
UK Met office pushes reset button on CRU data.
It’s going to take a while for them to cycle through the process, though. As in, more than a week. A lot more than a week. The Met Office plans to re-examine 160 years of temperature data after admitting that public confidence in the science on man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails. The new analysis of the data will take three years, | Read More »
Everybody stop breathing.
It’s good for the environment. Well, until all the plants suffocate*. Mark Hertsgaard, in the Nation: The IPCC says that rich industrial countries must cut emissions 25 to 40 percent by 2020 (from 1990 levels) if the world is to have a fair chance of avoiding catastrophic climate change. By contrast, the WBGU study says the United States must cut emissions 100 percent by 2020–i.e., | Read More »
Q. How does Al Gore handle inconvenient truths?
A. By getting the microphone cut off, of course. Via Breitbart TV and the B-Cast: For the record, I find the sight of Big Green shills stomping on the free speech of an independent whistleblower – yes, that was fun to write; thanks for asking – to be just a sign that they themselves know that they’re having problems pushing their agenda these days. When | Read More »
Climate Change and the White Man’s Burdening.
(H/T: On Park Street) To sum up this Reason article on developing nations and climate change despair: The Chinese and the Indians have no intention of giving anything but lip service to the quaint religious beliefs of Western climate change fanatics. They have no incentive to, and a powerful incentive not to: they are poor, and they wish to stop being poor, and there is | Read More »
