The Kinder, Gentler Osama bin Laden
In a newly released tape broadcast on Al-Jazeera televison, Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden expresses views that are nearly indistinguishable from those of radical environmentalists, European anarchists, or many Congressional Democrats. Bin Laden blasts US for climate change He blamed Western industrialized nations for hunger, desertification and floods across the globe, and called for “drastic solutions” to global warming, and “not solutions that partially | Read More »

Australian blogger Jo Nova provides a quick recap to help the casual reader keep track of the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scandals. The Four ‘Gates’ of the IPCC Let’s see. There’s Climate Gate, showing that the peer review process has descended into a criminal farce of scientific malpractice … PachuriGate, showing that the man in charge of the IPCC was chairman of | Read More »
Some Thoughts on Copenhagen and Climate Change
I’ve been reading up on the Copenhagen Conference lately and been listening to what the radio hosts have to say about it lately, and I came up with a few disturbing thoughts on these subjects that I’d like to share with you. First of all, I’m sure we all know that many 2nd world and 3rd world countries have already walked away from the table, | 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 »
Environmental jihad: the AGW Inquisition takes Holy War to the Gates of Copenhagen
Hypocrisy is not a trait of Global Warming Advocates, and you don’t really understand why that is so. What you see as hypocrisy, from Al Gore’s gazillion-watt cooling system to limos belching smoke through the streets of Copenhagen, is an entitlement. It is an entitlement that has been bestowed upon the priesthood of whatever religion man has practiced since he stood upright. The faithful’s deprivation | Read More »
Climategate Code Reveals East Anglia’s ‘Fudge Factor’
The Climate Scientists at the Hadley CRU may be able to finesse terms of art like “trick” and “hide the decline”, but I’d sure hate to be the guy that had to explain what the programmer’s comments in the following snippet of code really mean, under oath. ; ; Apply a VERY ARTIFICAL correction for decline!! ; yrloc=[1400,findgen(19)*5.+1904] valadj=[0.,0.,0.,0.,0.,-0.1,-0.25,-0.3,0.,-0.1,0.3,0.8,1.2,1.7,2.5,2.6,2.6, 2.6,2.6,2.6]*0.75 ; fudge factor if n_elements(yrloc) | 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 »
So what do we call this? The ‘Warm War?’
There is some suggestion that the Russians are behind the recent embarrassing Climategate data dump: Suspicions were growing last night that Russian security services were behind the leaking of the notorious British ‘Climategate’ emails which threaten to undermine tomorrow’s Copenhagen global warming summit. An investigation by The Mail on Sunday has discovered that the explosive hacked emails from the University of East Anglia were leaked | 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 »
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 »
Telegraph: Climategate is no problem! Just ask those under suspicion!
The London Telegraph was so profoundly upset by the news that the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (CRU) had allegedly falsified data that they felt compelled to issue a press release: Sceptics claim the emails show climate change data was being manipulated. Prof Jones, director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), has said he “absolutely” stands by | Read More »

What A Difference Three Years Makes!
It was 2006, and Senator Jim Webb had just finished winning an upset election victory over possible GOP Presidential Candidate George Allen. Macaca aside, the result was a stunning slap in the face to many who had come to take Virginia for granted as a GOP bastion. He took a victory lap over on the Opinion Page of The Wall Street Journal. He wrote an | Read More »
How Does Knowledge Accumulate When The Scientists All Lie?
Tony Kane wrote of the recent email hack aimed at Britain’s Climate Research Unit, University of East Anglia. In today’s Huntsville Examiner, his article “ClimateGate emails provide unwanted scrutiny of climate scientists” describes the professional practices rampant among the Western World’s scientific elite. On the surface, the emails seem to indicate scientists modified data to fit the anthropogenic global warming theory, tried to silence dissenting | Read More »
ClimateGate: Man-Made Global Warming May Be What Some Scientists Chose to be True
When discussing scientific things with a friend of mine, a scientist himself, the notion of Science as the dispassionate, neutral observer willing to fearlessly proceed wherever the evidence leads – even if it leads in a personally distasteful direction – colors his conversation. In truth, that’s probably how we all view Science. More to the point, it’s how we should view Science because it’s how | Read More »
You Just Can’t Trust John McCain. (HEE-Hee-Hee)
John McCain has recently shown Joe Lieberman and Lindsay Graham the same deeply abiding loyalty that his campaign staff once showed to Governor Palin. In other words, the wheel on the bus are going thump, thump, thump. The issue leading to the latest tergiversation from “Our Friend” Senator McCain is Cap and Trade. It seems he’s found a really cool way of pretending he’s still | Read More »
