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 »
“Scareface” Waxman’s Goose’s Gander
The entire global warming movement depends on scare tactics. Even if the supposition of a global calamity due to man-made global warming were true (and it’s not), this truth would depend on “fear” to sustain itself. Today, former Vice President Al Gore — who puts the P-U back into “Pulitzer” — testified before Congress stressing the need for a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in the | Read More »
Happy Earth Day! Hope the Sun decides to play along.
After reading an article on the excellent “Watts up with That”, I got to read a transcript from Charles Osgood on how any effect of global warming done by man can easily be outdone by the sun: I know you’ve already got a lot to worry about as it is, but something rather odd is going on — on the Sun. The Sun normally undergoes | Read More »
Carbon Cap and Tax: Environmental Oppression You Can Count On
This week, as the stock market continues its perilous slide towards an unknown abyss; the House Energy and Commerce Committee will begin hearings on a national energy tax bill that will cost every American household $3,128 a year for the “right” to emit carbon dioxide. The discussion draft of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES) has four primary objectives (a renewable energy production | Read More »
Sarah Palin on AGW, Alaska, and domestic energy
Conservatives for Science: Sarah Palin on AGW, Alaska, and domestic energy Several media outlets and blogs have taken note of Gov. Sarah Palin’s recent remarks on oil and natural gas development in Alaska. Palin made those remarks at a hearing held in the state by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. It is her discussion about global warming and the effects being felt in Alaska that have | Read More »
Combat global warming. Fire up your charcoal grill this weekend!
News flash: Global warming might really be caused by human activity after all. Seems we have too much clean air lately. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/04/09/arctic_aerosols_goddard_institute/ New research from NASA suggests that the Arctic warming trend seen in recent decades has indeed resulted from human activities: but not, as is widely assumed at present, those leading to carbon dioxide emissions. Rather, Arctic warming has been caused in large part | Read More »
Science Advisor John Holdren admits Administration has no clue on Global Warming
In an interview on April 8, 2009, John Holdren, Dear Leader’s Science Advisor states: “We don’t understand the system well enough to predict it’s responses in detail.” Now, I am somewhat confused. I have been brainwashed and brow beaten by Al Gore and his ‘consensus’ of experts to believe that they have this Global Climate System all down to a predictable science. They know EXACTLY | Read More »
The Ban on Black
California craziness continues! Their environmental agency plans to ban black cars, claiming that drivers use air conditioners too much when dark-painted cars heat up from the sun. Get the details and further links here from The Heritage Foundation. Regulating the color of cars—or anything else—is the mark of an overly-intrusive government and a lessening of our freedoms. Teabags are quickly becoming the symbol of too | Read More »
Quick, somebody tell Al Gore and Hussein the Usurper
Global warming is complete rubbish! Remember when “global warming” was going to cause more hurricanes? It is not happening. In fact, since 2005, America has only been struck by one major hurricane. From WorldNetDaily: A new study by Florida State University researcher Ryan Maue shows worldwide cyclone activity – typhoons, as well as hurricanes – has reached at least a 30-year low. Two more studies | Read More »
Global Warming: Was It Ever Really A Crisis?
The Heartland Institute concluded it’s second International Conference on Climate Change. For 2-1/2 -days from March 10 – 12, 2009 in New York City experts tackled and confronted the theme “Global warming: Was it ever really a crisis?” The Heartland Institute has now made available video, Audio and Power Point presentations from the conference of which some of the material I found interesting and compelling | Read More »
Obama Will Raise Your Electric Bill $1,800
Hold onto your thermostat as well as your wallet! Annual utility bills may rise $1,800 under President Obama’s “cap and trade” energy tax plan. That wipes out his pledge of a $800 a year tax cut for 95% of Americans. The White House admits low-balling the cost in Obama’s official budget, which claimed that his plan would add $646 billion to energy costs over 8 | Read More »
The recent collapse of Tropical Storm activity.
http://www.coaps.fsu.edu/~maue/tropical/ I’ll wager the irony is not lost on the doctoral student in meteorolgy from Florida, the erstwhile Dr. Maue. Tropical storm activity worldwide has completely collapsed, by any measure, although his statistics bear some semblence of mathematical rigor. He bothers to gauge cumulative cyclone energy rather than rely on the digital staccato of the annual named-storms lists. A more layman-friendly illustration of Altantic hurricane seasons, and | 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.
The Greenpocrisy of Congress: Canceling ‘Carbon Offset’ Buys for Congress’ Power Plant
Go “green” or go out of business. That is the message Congress wants to send to America’s power plants run by coal — and any and every other power facility for that matter. Congressmen after Congressmen have waddled forth onto TV and into print to wag a green finger at our power grid scolding it for being “too dirty” and not environmentally friendly. These politicians, | Read More »
Calling Bulls**t on Climate Change (But in a Rational, Open-Minded Way), Part I
In order to achieve the Ultimate State of Enlightenment re: Climate Change Policy, we have been encouraged to swallow Al Gore’s panicky conclusion (that We Must Act Now! to Combat AGW!) in one giant leap of faith. Doubters are marginalized with the label “Global Warming Deniers”. Using simple mathematical and decision-making principles, you, too, can be a bona-fide Climate Change Skeptic, and not a Global | Read More »
