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 »
What are the depths of Peter Gleick’s depravity in the Heartland global warming smear attack? [UPDATED]
[UPDATE: The preliminary steps of removing Peter Gleick from positions of authority and respect have begun: he's 'resigned' from his position with the National Center for Science Education, and his scientific ethics task force chairmanship(!) for the American Geophysical Union. One wonders whether groups like the MacArthur Fellows Program and NAS will insist that Gleick cut all ties from them, as well. Nobody's really expecting | 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 »
A mini-Ice Age?
Better throw some more logs on the fire. What may be the science story of the century is breaking this evening, as heavyweight US solar physicists announce that the Sun appears to be headed into a lengthy spell of low activity, which could mean that the Earth – far from facing a global warming problem – is actually headed into a mini Ice Age. [snip] | Read More »
QotD, Senator Ma’am edition.
Dinging Senator Barbara Boxer for saying something stupid is cruel. And vicious. And viciously cruel; and it’s all because it’s far too easy to do. I am being lazy by highlighting her flustered response to Senators Barasso’s and Inhofe’s cheerful Hey, you guys have been claiming eco-Apocalypses for forty years now; only back then it was global cooling that was going to kill us all. | Read More »
Greenpeace, the criminal conspiracy.
Read this fast, because Greenpeace will figure out pretty quickly how thoroughly they’ve stepped in it. If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this: We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we | Read More »
I’m still digging out from 3 feet’s worth of RFK Jr’s ‘anemic winter’ …
…so people will understand that I’m about as interested as David Freddoso in being overly nice in pointing out his past bloviating. My back isn’t actually killing me, right now, but that’s only because I was being very, very careful about removing all that anemic winter from the car. I’m going to be forty in a couple of months; I don’t bounce back from straining | 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 »
If you are an industrialist who contributed to Democrats… [UPDATED]
…here is your reward: WASHINGTON – The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people’s health and must be regulated, signaling that the Obama administration is prepared to contain global warming without congressional action if necessary. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson scheduled a news conference for later Monday to announce the so-called endangerment finding, officials told The Associated Press, speaking privately because the announcement | Read More »
The non-AGW non-snows of Kilimanjaro.
Oops. Professor Sinninghe Damste’s research, as discussed on the site of the Dutch Organization of Scientific Research (DOSR) — a governmental body — shows that the icecap of Kilimanjaro was not the result of cold air but of large amounts of precipitation which fell at the beginning of the Holocene period, about 11,000 years ago. The melting and freezing of moisture on top of Kilimanjaro | Read More »
With a rousing cry of ‘Terra vult,’ no doubt*.
Mark Steyn, with a little of the class warfare, particularly as it applies to global warming aristos. Or should that be theocrats? I’m not really an expert in research theology. One assumes Gar Smith is sincere in his fetishization of bucolic African poverty, with its vibrantly rampant disease and charmingly unspoilt life expectancy in the mid-forties. But when a hereditary prince starts attacking capitalism and | Read More »
“In 1972, Chicken Little wore a parka.”
That’s the quote of the day, and it comes from McQ of Q&O as part of his post on 1972′s Thing That Was Going To Kill Us All: The Coming Ice Age! As they review the bizarre and unpredictable weather pattern of the past several years, a growing number of scientists are beginning to suspect that many seemingly contradictory meteorological fluctuations are actually part of | Read More »
Well, SOMEBODY’S getting fired over this global warming ad flap.
To quote Cool Hand Luke, what we have here is a failure to communicate: ‘Global warming is baloney’ signs put the heat on Burger King A row between the fast food giant Burger King and one of its major franchise owners has erupted over roadside signs proclaiming “global warming is baloney”. The franchisee, a Memphis-based company called the Mirabile Investment Corporation (MIC) that owns more | Read More »
Al Gore makes a lot of money off of global warming.
A lot of money. As in, his net worth has increased fifty-fold, and that’s not a typo. Gateway Pundit revisits some commentary by Pro Patria about Al Gore’s relationship with Big Green (a good name, that): So just what has Al Gore gained from his Big Green escapades? According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. | Read More »
Democrats in Congress: Carbon neutrality for you; not for us.
While it’s really, really easy to laugh at the fact that the environmentalists’ march on the Capitol Power Plant is being hampered by a heavy snowstorm – to blatantly steal from one of my cobloggers, I’ve just come in from shoveling eight inches of global warming off of my front walkway – it’s… Hold on. I’m actually still laughing. OK.
