Greenpeace founder says no proof of global warming!!!

GreenpeacePlease put your cup down, so that you don’t blow coffee out your nose!

The founder of Greenpeace admits that there’s no scientific evidence that human activity is causing the Earth to heat up; he’s actually advocating increased use of nuclear energy, but his reasoning is still to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (because though it’s not a problem now, it could be). Wow! One must wonder when more of the alarmist ilk will start breaking ranks when it becomes overwhelmingly obvious that Al Gore is a dufus after all.

Isn't this strange? We've got Bush, Gingrich, and Robertson backing global warming solutions, while an environmentalist is saying there's no proof of manmade climate change (even though he still backs action).

Here's the thing--I BELIEVE IN CONSERVING AND PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT too, because it's appropriate to be a good steward of the Earth. However, we shouldn't scare people into doing this based on a lie; it's unethical and highly elitist to do so.

Greenpeace founder now backs nuclear power | News Updates | Idaho Statesman:

Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose.

The chemistry of the atmosphere is changing, and there is a high-enough risk that "true believers" like Al Gore are right that world economies need to wean themselves off fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gases, he said.

"It's like buying fire insurance," Moore said. "We all own fire insurance even though there is a low risk we are going to get into an accident."

The only viable solution is to build hundreds of nuclear power plants over the next century, Moore told the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. There isn't enough potential for wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal or other renewable energy sources, he said.

Gore backed biofuels solution that starves people

Told you...our climate change solutions will do far more harm (see here for the stupid mercury-tainted light bulbs) than the supposed manmade climate change, which isn't even occurring by the way.

Go ahead world citizens...let Al Gore lead you over a cliff; I'm not going with him.

Food Crisis Starts Eclipsing Climate Change Worries | The New York Sun:

In an interview last year, Mr. Gore expressed his support for corn-based ethanol, but endorsed moving to what he called a “third generation” of so-called cellulosic ethanol production, which is still in laboratory research. “It doesn’t compete with food crops, so it doesn’t put pressure on food prices,” the former vice president told Popular Mechanics magazine.

Ski resorts open into May!

LOL! Ski resorts running into May 2008 due to the “blessings of Mother Nature.” How is this even possible? Warming causes cooling, remember? And don't forget, warming rushes spring and 2008 will be the hottest year on record (and other silly predictions that didn't come true).

Brundage Mountain extends ski season into May | KTVB.COM | Idaho News:

McCALL -- Near-record snowfall and low spring temperatures are creating ideal conditions at Brundage Mountain Resort. Resort officials announced today that they will be open for a third bonus weekend in May.

The resort is currently closed on weekdays, and had planned this Saturday and Sunday to be the final ski weekend of the season, but that was before 10 inches of fresh powder fell this week. Now, resort managers have decided to be open on May 3rd and 4th.

EPA scientists pressured to bias their results

Still question whether politics is currently corrupting science? A usual tactic often employed by these political elements is to recognize the truth and then claim the opposite: here, the NYT is telling us that politics is corrupting science, EXCEPT that the boogeyman is portrayed as CONSERVATIVE politics that is choosing to ignore “consensus science.” (Funny, because, right now, conservative elites are jumping on the bandwagon just like liberals.)

As a non-consensus scientist, let me state this fact:

There is NO SUCH THING AS CONSENSUS IN SCIENCE! Science DOES NOT work like an L.A. street gang. (Google “Galileo” or Google “Darwin” to read about mavericks who resisted the consensus—and were RIGHT!)

This article couldn't be more poignant at pointing out how politics is currently attempting to corrupt science for its own ends; right now, the lie of manmade global warming has become the centerpiece of worldwide climate politics and environmental movements (not climate science). It's surprising to see the AP publishing this rather frank admission, when they have been guilty of propagandizing this issue themselves for years.

Basically, these EPA scientists are saying, through a survey instrument (which they were initially told not to answer), that federal politicians have been trying to coax and intimidate certain results or answers out of the scientists, so that the politicians would be free to scream “consensus science” when confronted with debate and argument over proposed U.S. and U.N. environmental policies—policies that will cost you money and will increase the power of the politicians involved. In the process, many scientists have begun to wake up and realize that they're corrupting an institution that they've been charged with protecting—the unbiased, untainted scientific search for truth.

REAL climate science is currently under attack. Radical political and environmental elements have seized an opportunity in the theory of human-induced climate change—a theory that, regardless of the way it's portrayed by Al Gore and the media, is still not proven beyond scientific doubt. On the contrary, there are many problems

Sunspots low - get ready for cooling

LOL! Oh please let this happen. I mean, it probably has as much validity as the predictions of us all turning into Pop Tarts due to excessive human-caused global warmth, but I must admit that it would be satisfying to further expose the fear mongers like Al Gore for the frauds they are.

Of course, the results of such a cataclysm wouldn’t be desirable (just as the effects of global warming--if it were real--wouldn't be desirable).

This isn't the first we've heard of this either (and see here and here), and he contradicts another media-trumpeted NASA scientist. - Scientist: Forget Global Warming, Prepare for New Ice Age - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News:

Sunspot activity has not resumed up after hitting an 11-year low in March last year, raising fears that — far from warming — the globe is about to return to an Ice Age, says an Australian-American scientist.

Physicist Phil Chapman, the first native-born Australian to become an astronaut with NASA [he became an American citizen to join up, though he never went into space], said pictures from the U.S. Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) showed no spots on the sun.

He said the world cooled quickly between January last year and January this year, by about 0.7 degrees Centigrade.

GASP!: AGW will cause world wars!

Okay, so I’ve decided to create another special post series in honor of the weekly deluge of climate fear mongering articles that spew forth across the wires. The title of this series will be “GASP!” Meaning, it’s Chicken Little time again!

In our first official installment of GASP! (first unofficial installment is here and the archives will show that we’ve previously done a thorough job of discussing many apocalyptic articles), it looks like nonexistent global warming is going to send us on a path to world war.

Weird how a problem that’s not real can do that, but the media can just about urge anything into being if they bombard your brain enough each week. Problem is...nobody really believes them on this issue, especially since it hasn’t warmed in 10 years and last winter was a record breaker (and by that I mean—RECORD BREAKING COLD AND SNOW).

Steven Milloy of recently had some valuable insights along the GASP! line of thinking. Global warming apparently causes literally THOUSANDS of problemsdeaths, extinctions, cannibalism, droughts, floods, hot, cold, bee stings, famines, tornados, hurricanes, melting ice, increased diseases, and so on; the claims are so absurd that I can’t understand why some media members haven’t started attacking this farce (well, some have and are being ignored).

Climate change 'may put world at war' - Telegraph

Climate change could cause global conflicts as large as the two world wars but lasting for centuries unless the problem is controlled, a leading defence think tank has warned.

The Royal United Services Institute said a tenfold increase in research spending, comparable to the amount spent on the Apollo space programme, will be needed if the world is to avoid the worst effects of changing temperatures.

Eco-therapy for fruitcakes

This is a perfect illustration of the media-induced psychosis that disaster-laded predictions of manmade global warming are perpetrating on the weak-minded. The science, clearly viewed, studied, and digested logically—without sentiment, shows that human-caused global warming or climate change is a non-event, yet we’ve discussed ad infinitum on this blog why the myth of global warming is still being propped up. Money and reputations are at stake; think of all the rich and powerful—the elites and the scientific professionals—who will suffer if the scam is exposed. What will happen to them? What will happen to the climate research grants? Follow the money!

I believe the source of manmade climate change theory started off innocently enough. But somewhere along the way, idiots (meaning mostly politicians and politically connected scientists) grabbed the newborn theories of some climatologists and ran like the Gipper toward the end zone; the snowball effect was in full force, and it has now gained a life of its own. It has become biblical and practically heretical to question.

Remember the “8 glasses of water a day” myth? That was recently exposed as garbage too, but how many of you had your doctor or “someone smart” tell you to drink that much for your health?

How many of you right now are declaring what I say on manmade climate change, AGW, or global warming to be sacrilege? Forget about me and examine yourself internally. On what basis do you dismiss me as denier, cynic, flat-earther, etc.? (Call me realist.) Is it your own determination, or have you decided what you’ve been told by the “consensus” via the media is correct? Do you have the sense that I should be silenced? Drawn-and-quartered? Branded with the Scarlet Letter (i.e., "D" for denier)? Is the time for debate really over? If so, why has it been shut down and by whose authority?

Real science never stops debating (look at all the continual debates in other scientific endeavors—from dinosaur extinctions to sources of life), and yet we’ve been told by “really smart people” that the consensus has deemed scientific debate over; therefore, we’re no longer allowed to dissent, debate, and discuss this shaky issue that seems to beckon for “immediate, critical action.” The very basis of science has been kicked to the curb by politicians, who have found a unique opportunity and will protect the idea (whether it’s real or imagined) vigorously.

All of you with global warming anxiety will just have to deal with it; the elites who are shoving this down your throat need you anxious so that you’ll demand unnecessary governmental action, which gives them (politicians and politically-connected) a toehold to expand the programs (both governmental and scientific) needed to “fight” something that isn’t even real. The scientist needs the grant money to continue earning a buck through research. The politician needs to manage governmental programs, whether the need is real or imagined for those programs, because governmental programs provide a basis for power (and ultimately wealth).

If the collective human consciousness thinks global warming is real then it will be real enough for “the smartest among us” to be granted by us the authority to save the planet using our resources (i.e., taxes). Use your brain! Think! Study it for yourself. Don’t just believe what you’re told—by me or anyone else!

Don’t be like this poor, tree-hugging plastic surgery victim in the news story. Aliens aren’t invading. Bigfoot won’t stomp on you. Y2K did not cause worldwide panic. Bird Flu is not ravaging the countryside. Saccharin is not making tumors inside us. Eight glasses of water per day are unnecessary; please drink when you’re thirsty. Light bulbs won’t save the planet. SUVs aren’t evil. The Earth’s temperature is not out of control. The apocalypse is not at hand. - Is Going Green Making You Crazy?

Now, she says: "We only drive to the grocery store every three weeks. We have our own source of water. We compost and no longer heat every room on the first floor."

Edwards suffers from eco-anxiety, the growing angst experienced by those who can't handle the thought that they — or anyone — are in some way contributing to global warming, species extinction and dwindling natural resources.

She recently launched a blog called "Eco-Anxiety" because she believes environmental dangers should be taken seriously. "This is severely disturbing," she says.

Record-setting winter weather on Earth Day

LOL! much for global warming, which as I’ve been trying to explain, is about as real as Santa Claus. At least the idea of Santa has some actual value. And this from Canada; remember this Canadian doom piece from the other day? Of course, others from Canada worry about global cooling.

Is it me or does it seem like every time these nutjobs try to hold a media protest event, an antithetical weather anomaly comes in to ruin it? -Edmonton News-No heaven on Earth Day:

Wintry blast cools global warming fervour

So much for global warming. Earth Day festivities went ahead despite the blast of frigid weather yesterday.

Vendors and presenters from various eco-friendly groups, including Bullfrog Power, CO2 Reduction Edmonton and the local solar energy society, crammed into a lone tent in Hawrelak Park after a blizzard forced them to abandon their original locations.

Winter weather sets several records:
All that April snow this weekend was more than surprising -- it was also record-setting.

The flakes that fell across the Vancouver region Friday night and Saturday represent the latest snowfall ever on record.

At its peak, the storm dumped 2.5 cm of snow at the Vancouver International Airport, with 8 cm at Lynn Valley and 30 cm at Mount Seymour. Vancouver Island recorded 6.4 cm of snow at Victoria International Airport by 11 a.m. Saturday -- more than any on an April day since 1940. But the big record dump came in Nanaimo, where the city hadn't seen measurable snow on April 19 since 1947. As of 11 a.m., 24 cm covered the ground at the airport.

PETA mad at Al for chewing on a cow

Remember? Cow farts are deadly!

Why question just Al Gore’s diet? Why not point out all the other hypocrisies associated with his climate crusade, such as his excessive home energy use and his use of private jets to travel the world in order to give his several-thousand-dollar PowerPoint presentation on how WE AMERICANS can cut back to save Earth? Eating a hunk of meat is the least of Al’s contradictions. Of course, there’s also the fact that he’s scientifically wrong about AGW, as are his ridiculous predictions of doom.

Al says the “law must change” when it comes to the climate, and this really gets at the heart of what he’s after. He’s a politician, and politicians need a dire situation—real or imagined—to accumulate power through lawmaking. New laws rarely, if ever, require fewer resources from you—the average American, which means you can plan on opening your wallet up.

Global warming for Al means relevancy and cash (ahem, his carbon credit business). What were some of Al’s previous campaigns requiring governmental action and the wastage of your tax dollars? Stamping out $80 hammers, ozone holes, and obscene pop music lyrics (remember Tipper Gore's PMRC?). Once AGW is a forgotten crusade, he’ll find another cause; crafty politicians always do. Don’t be dumb, America. - Pop Tarts: Exclusive: Not So Earth-Friendly? Activists Attack Al Gore - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment:

LOS ANGELES — Look out, Al Gore ... People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says you are refusing to face one very "inconvenient truth."

On Monday, the animal rights organization launched the campaign (conveniently timed for Earth Day) in an attempt to counter the effects that they say the former vice president's meat-laden diet has on Mother Nature.

While reps for Gore had no comment, Pop Tarts confirmed with people who have worked with the ex-veep that he loves his steak and sausage, plus he was notorious for chowing down on the almost all-meat Atkins diet during his run for president.

Global warming | An Inconvenient Truth | Al Gore talks green to The Sun | The Sun |HomePage|News|Special Events|Green Week:
And he warns that while individual efforts such as changing to low-energy lightbulbs are important, it is more significant for world leaders to change laws to stop pollution pouring into the atmosphere and affecting the climate.

AGW rushes spring...NOT!

Wait! I thought global warming was rushing spring???!!!

Mid-April. Still cold. Still winter in too many places. Global warming. BAH! You know the alarmists can’t wait for summer so that they can claim human-induced warming and at least sound less hysterical and stupid. After all, it will be hot outside; it’s easier to convince automatons that there’s global warming when it’s actually warm.

Cold Temperatures Freeze Gardening Season:

MARION – All of this cold weather is freezing the start of the gardening season. Now, outdoor fans are eager for a warm-up.

"I'm 71-years-old and I've never seen spring come this late," Robert Ciesleck said.

GASP!: We'll all be cannibals!

Ted Turner
As if we needed proof that Ted Turner was an idiot. Here's one more reason he's a fringe-kook, Che-Guevara-loving leftist. Did you know that global warming will so devastate us that we'll all be eating each other soon (if we live)? LOL!

Ted Turner: Global warming could lead to cannibalism |

Failure to address global warming will have us all dead or eating each other by mid-century.

So says Ted Turner, the restaurateur, environmentalist and former media mogul whose controversial comments have earned him the nickname "Mouth of the South."

Turner: Global Warming Will Cause Mass Cannibalism, Insurgents Are Patriots |
Not doing it will be catastrophic. We'll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.

Olympic Torch Inflicts Environmental Toll???!!!

LOL! You can’t make this stuff up! I love it. Who knew a little torch could be so harmful?

ABC News: Olympic Torch Inflicts Environmental Toll:

Angry protesters, riot police, mass demonstrations, arrests for disorderly conduct -- it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing for the Olympic-torch relay. If people are looking for another reason to be pissed at China, how about this: By the time this pyro parade is over, it will have produced about 11 million pounds of carbon emissions.

Hurricanes "above average" this year

Here we go again. We’ve had “above average” hurricane forecasts over the past two years, and they were WRONG (and apparently Al Gore is wrong too)! Nothing against Dr. Gray, who is also a fellow global warming skeptic, but this proves a point. Forecasting anything associated with weather and climate accurately beyond a few days is an exercise in futility. This means you can ignore all those global warming doom-sayers who proclaim we’ll be extinct in 10 – 100 years (depends on which prophet you listen to).

Let’s see how accurate this hurricane forecast turns out to be; statistically speaking, if they keep saying we’ll have an “above average” cyclone season then they’ll eventually be correct just based on law-of-averages. Notice the safety of the prediction: “above average but not as strong as 2005.” As long as the season isn’t as slow as last year and fails to be as strong as 2005, they’ll be deemed right. So let’s mark it; the prediction is 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 4 hurricanes that are strong (>111 mph). - Forecasters Predict 'Well Above Average' Hurricane Activity for 2008 Season - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News:

Fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy hurricane season.

That's the latest word from a team of Colorado State University forecasters, who predict the nation's Atlantic coast will experience a hurricane season "well above average."

"Current oceanic and atmospheric trends indicate that we will likely have an active Atlantic basin hurricane season," said William Gray, who heads the university's forecast team.

Airlines and "green" corporations

The fruitcakes will miss the airlines when they're gone and no longer able to shuttle them around to their fruitcake climate speaking engagements (oh, that's right...Al Gore uses a private jet--silly me).

Fear not Airbus, all honest, capitalistic entities are under fire right now, because the fuel of capitalism is oil—plain and simple. Even Al Gore could understand that…uh, never mind. At any rate, all Airbus needs to do is just pretend to care, as other savvy corporations have done.

Many business board rooms have demonstrated smarts and recognize a government-backed, lunatic-supported boondoggle when they see it; they’ve constructed elaborate “green” campaigns to convince everyone—government and consumers—that they’re doing something to save the planet from global warming, which is nonsense. It’s very similar to the campaign by cigarette companies to convince consumers not to smoke; how ridiculous is that?

If one believes that fossil fuel use is warming the Earth (and IT IS NOT) then one must also believe that capitalism can’t exist in its current form, because no fuel or energy is efficient enough to drive the current world economy at the pace needed to continue growth and stave off recessions or depressions.

These “green corporations” are just riding the profiteering wave like everyone else; as I said—manmade climate change equals BOONDOGGLE, and liberals and conservatives are signing on to the BS network. You can play along and rake in some bucks, or you can resist the stupidity like me and be dragged before the new McCarthy hearings—this time for a love of capitalism, not communism.

Airbus boss says aviation unfairly targeted over climate change:

The aviation industry is being unfairly targeted over climate change and future reductions in aircraft emissions should be based on technological innovation rather than regulation, Airbus chief Tom Enders said Wednesday.

"We think it's a little bit unfair that the aviation sector is singled out for attack by many environmental groups, maybe because we are more visible than other groups," Enders told a media briefing in Auckland.

Bush, Gingrich taking up climate change scepter

Change course? Bush has always backed this stupid BS. He’s proving he’s as dumb as his political enemies have claimed. Or maybe he’s really smart and is planning to jump on the profit bandwagon. I saw a commercial the other day with Newt Gingrich backing this tripe (with Nancy Pelosi) and almost swallowed my tongue!

Bush prepares global warming initiative - - Breaking News, Political News & National Security News - The Washington Times:

President Bush is poised to change course and announce as early as this week that he wants Congress to pass a bill to combat global warming, and will lay out principles for what that should include.

Specifics of the policy are still being fiercely debated, but Bush administration officials have told Republicans in Congress that they feel pressure to act now because they fear a coming regulatory nightmare. It would be the first time Mr. Bush has called for statutory authority on the subject.

We've seen how GWB has proven he's on the profiteering bandwagon, when it comes to this climate alarmism nonsense. Now, he's proving that he can still beat Al Gore, even at his own scam. - Junk Science: Bush Beats Gore on Climate? - Opinion:

In the very same week that Gore launched a $300 million public relations campaign to convince Americans that "together we can solve the climate crisis," prominent climate alarmist Tom Wigley essentially endorsed President Bush’s approach to global warming while criticizing that of Gore’s co-Nobelist, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC.

In an article entitled "Dangerous Assumptions" published in Nature on April 3, Wigley writes that the technology challenge presented by the goal of stabilizing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations "has been seriously underestimated by the IPCC, diverting attention from policies that could directly stimulate technological innovation."

Wigley, even though he is a lead author of the most recent IPCC report, describes that document as relying on "unrealistic" and "unachievable" CO2 emissions scenarios — even for the present decade. For the period 2000-2010, the IPCC assumes that energy and fossil fuel efficiency is increasing.

Follow the cash to find the rat

Remember, follow the dollars. Any time you smell a rat, follow the money trail. Global warming, to me, is the equivalent of an early morning informercial scam; the claims presented in this “theory” are about as ridiculous as most informercial claims and prove that adage often incorrectly tied to P.T. Barnum: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

Don’t believe me? See below. The insurance companies are upset that they’re going to have to give back money, because “climate change” hasn’t caused the predicted disasters. We’ve seen all about predictions ASS-ociated with manmade global warming. They’re notoriously WRONG.

Lloyd's warns of a lack of natural disasters | Business | The Guardian:

Lloyd's of London warned yesterday that an absence last year of natural disasters or man-made accidents was putting pressure on firms to reduce premiums in 2008.

The world's oldest and biggest insurance market said that though the lack of major disasters had allowed firms to push up profits 5% in 2007, underwriting margins were being squeezed.

The true impact of global warming solutions is revealed. Get ready for more, zombie-sheep, if you turn this “problem” over to the politicians and expect them to solve it. As inevitably happens whenever they muck around under the hood, the car sputters, chokes, and dies—just look at Social Security and Medicare.

World Bank accused of climate change hijack | Environment | Reuters
BANGKOK (Reuters) - Developing countries and environmental groups accused the World Bank on Friday of trying to seize control of the billions of dollars of aid that will be used to tackle climate change in the next four decades.

Recent notable climate-related headlines

Still don't think global warming is about money and taxes?

On Carbon, Tax and Don’t Spend - New York Times:

The idea is that polluters should pay for the environmental damage they cause. Slap a tax on carbon, the theory goes, and you will get fewer carbon emissions, more revenue for government and energy independence, all at the same time. No wonder people from both sides of the political divide have come out in support of it.
18 states sue EPA over greenhouse gas pollution Gasp! China is 1/2 inch down from the rainfall norm this spring? Surely this drought disaster is being caused by AGW. I thought all the record snow they received in China this past winter would more than make up for any drought problems??!!

Drought hits northern China | Environment | Reuters:

Normally, there is 12.7 mm (0.5 inch) of precipitation by now, the Xinhua news agency quoted Jiao Meiyan, of the China Meteorological Administration, as saying.

Eight protesters arrested at coal plant | Environment | Reuters:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Eight protesters who locked themselves to bulldozers at a Duke Energy Corp coal-fired power plant in North Carolina as part of a day of international actions on climate change were arrested on Tuesday, police said.
So, let me get this straight. We had Canadian scientists recently worried about global cooling, and we had the highest ice in 15 years between Greenland and Canada. Why, just last month we had an article that tried to dismiss the newly reformed ice in the Arctic. Enough of all that...let's get back to the WORRY paradigm that works for climate alarmism.

Canadian researchers warn of new Arctic worries:

Melting ocean ice is apparently allowing larger storm surges to flood into the delta in Canada's far north, a change that could have an impact on energy development plans for the region, said Lance Lesack, who has been tracking environmental changes in the region for more than a decade.

News Flash: It will be hot this summer!!!

I knew this would happen. It's much easier to convince people there is warming when it's warm outside; get thee behind me awful winter...and hurry! Of course, this flies in the face of other predictions that state we're in for a cooling spell.

Read below and see if you can't pick out what's missing. They've let slip a nasty little secret and tried to bury it in a way that you wouldn't notice--the temperatures (again, if you believe their baseline) stopped warming in 1998!!! (That's 10 years ago people.)

Climate solutions seen harming indigenous peoples | Environment | Reuters

OSLO (Reuters) - Large-scale solutions to help slow global warming often threaten the very indigenous peoples who are among those hardest hit by a changing climate, the U.N. University said on Wednesday.

Marines raise tree on Iwo Jima?

Unlike the video showing that the New Zealand media can calmly examine the debate offered by climate realists, American media have fully invested themselves in the idea that we're killing the planet with CO2, and they're willing to torch iconic images to get their propaganda into your brain!

Time Spokesman Unapologetic for Offending Veterans; Calls Cover ‘Respectful’:

Although the cover of the April 21 Time magazine has gotten widespread complaints from the veterans and has been scrutinized by the media, a spokesman from Time offered no apology. The magazine had changed for their decision to use the iconic image of the Iwo Jima flagraising to promote global warming activism.

"TIME has the utmost respect for our nation's veterans and we well understand the power of the iconic image of the raising of the flag over Iwo Jima," Daniel Kile, associate director of public relations at Time, said in an e-mail to the Business & Media Institute (BMI). "We believe this is a respectful use of this symbol of American valor and courage and serves to highlight another great challenge facing our nation."

The magazine's cover replaced removed the flag in the famous photo and replaced it with a tree.

Democrat debate attendees don't care about AGW

Newsbusters correctly points out that Americans really don't give a crap about this baloney climate change business, especially since it's still snowing in April. People say they support action against global warming because it's the current en vogue, chic, and politically correct thing to do, but in reality, any person with a brain willing to dig for facts will discover it is a fart in the wind.

NYT Whines About No Global Warming Debate Questions Despite ABC Poll:

The League of Conservation Voters, an environmental watchdog group, reports that in the debates in which five Sunday-morning television anchors — George Stephanopoulos, Tim Russert, Wolf Blitzer, Chris Wallace and Bob Schieffer — have participated (17 in total) and in their major interviews with the candidates (176 in total) only eight of the 2,372 questions asked have mentioned global warming or climate change.

That omission is baffling because the environment has become a big issue for Americans. Nearly 6 in 10 people responding to a Pew Research Center poll in January said that protecting the environment and dealing with energy problems should be top priorities.

Animal Death-Watch: Trout

Be certain to check our previous Animal Death-Watches! By the time AGW is done with us, there'll be nothing left on Earth!!!!

As Fight for Water Heats Up, Prized Fish Suffer - New York Times:

Floods, wildfires, livestock grazing and roads only make the picture worse. Some studies project the loss of Western trout populations in some regions could be more than 60 percent, and the loss of bull trout could exceed 90 percent by 2050. Salmon will also see a decline, up to 40 percent.

Slightly growing drought?

The implications in this article are that climate change is at work again (please read my previous posts on droughts). We can see that there is precedent for drought in this area, and that the drought is loosening. Wouldn't it persist if caused by manmade climate change?

Drought grows slightly in E. Australian farmlands | Environment | Reuters:

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A key part of Australia's eastern farmlands slipped further into drought in March but record crops were still expected if good rains fell soon, New South Wales Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald said on Sunday.

New South Wales, one of Australia's biggest agricultural states, was hit hardest by the country's worst drought in 100 years before rain began falling early this year.

The rain reduced the area of the state in drought to around 40 percent from 99 percent during the worst of the drought in 2002.

Recent, great coverage of scam

Why reinvent the wheel? Newsbusters does a great job of covering much of the global warming nonsense going on in the media, so I turn this post over to them (also because I haven't had a lot of time to vent lately):

In fact, what was once a realistic portrayal of new data released by the World Meteorological Organization suddenly became another hysterical report espousing doom and gloom at the hands of manmade global warming.
Global Warming Activist Pressures BBC to Significantly Alter Article |
NewsBusters has just learned that a British "climate activist" was responsible for getting the BBC to radically alter its "Global Temperatures 'To Decrease'" article last Friday.
Australian Paper: No Criticism of Earth Hour Allowed |
It continues. Days after NewsBusters reported that the BBC willingly censored its reporting to fit the agenda of a left-wing environmental activist comes news that reporters at an Australian paper have been forced company-wide to promote climate alarmism by their bosses.
Gore Bars Press From Speech In San Francisco |
After all, it's not like anyone is going to ask him a tough question, or write something that might expose him as the charlatan most folks not drinking the Kool -- er, I mean Global Warming-Aid understand him to be.

However, that's exactly what happened Friday afternoon when the Global Warmingest-in-Chief spoke at the RSA Conference with specific instructions for no press members to be allowed through the doors of the Moscone Convention Center.

Animal Death-Watch: Koalas

From now until this hoax is fully exposed, I will highlight media fear pieces that predict the demise or harm of species as a result of "manmade climate change." These pieces will be entitled "Animal Death-Watch." An oft-used media tactic is to pick cute, cuddly looking creatures and show how our modern way of life (i.e., capitalism) is killing them off.

In the past, we've seen stories of polar bears, seals, newts, frogs, and now koalas. And, please review the extensive list of articles that predicted all sorts of extinctions due to global warming. Let's see how many of these critters actually end up harmed, shall we? I predict NONE!

This one is funny, because it depicts the harm first to a plant (eucalyptus trees), the leaves of which form the dietary staple of these lovable little fuzz balls. Aren't plants nourished by CO2, heat, and sunlight? Whatever happened to basic biology and botany? No matter...just stick a few eucalyptus seeds in the Arctic lock box and call it a day.

Climate change threatens Australia's koala: report | Environment | Reuters:

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia's unique tree-dwelling koalas may become a victim of climate change, new research reported on Saturday shows.

Australian scientists say that eucalyptus leaves, the staple diet of koalas and other animals, could become inedible because of climate change.

Nobel Dodo bird's prediction

Dodo Bird
Notice certain words below in the article on Dr. Molina's "prestigious research" and pontification. We see ALARM, WARNING, IRREVERSIBLE CONSEQUENCES, and WORRISOME. The term Nobel no longer has much weight with me, since they gave one to Al Gore--a complete dufus. This article is a stereotypical climate fear piece, designed to influence the sheep among us for political reasons.

Now, let's look at all the B.S. stuffed into the article; I've already debunked many of these subjects in previous posts, but let's take each one-by-one. First, is the Earth warming? No, it isn't and hasn't since 1998; as a matter of fact, the temperature this past winter failed to meet warming predictions and instead plummeted.

Next, the changes in climate we see are a result of human activities--namely, CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. We've seen how the temperature graph of the past 10 years has not mirrored the CO2 graph, which was previously espoused as proof of manmade warming. If CO2 drives warming then we should not have had plateaued and then reduced warming over the past 10 years (especially the precipitous drop this past winter).

Finally, Dr. Molina really shows his true alarmist tendencies by broaching the subject of hurricanes. NOAA has already debunked the connection to stronger hurricanes and "manmade warming," and if the Earth is still warming (which it isn't) then we should have seen stronger storms than 2005's Katrina over the past few years, even with the oft-used La Nina and El Nino excuses to revise failed climate and hurricane predictions. Heck, 1998 should have brought the worst hurricanes with the "spike" in warming, and it failed to do so.

Note that the consequences mentioned below are "ALMOST" irreversible. That means that "really smart" scientists and politicians can still save your dumb butt from your love of capitalism, which is fed by oil.

Nobel scientist warns on climate change | Environment | Reuters

MIAMI (Reuters) - The Nobel Prize-winning scientist who rang the first alarm bells over the ozone hole issued a warming about climate change on Saturday, saying there could be "almost irreversible consequences" if the Earth warmed 2.5 degrees Celsius (4.5 degrees F) above what it ought to be.

"Things are changing and there's no doubt that it's as a result of human activities," said Mario Molina, a Mexican who shared a Nobel prize in chemistry in 1995 for groundbreaking work on chlorofluorocarbon gases and their threat to the Earth's ozone layer.

"Long before we run out of oil, we will run out of atmosphere," he said.

Molina told a panel discussion on climate change at an annual Inter-American Development Bank meeting in Miami that the increasing intensity of hurricanes was among the worrisome changes that scientists had linked to a rapid global warming trend over the past 30 years.

Global temps to DECREASE??!!

Earth La Nina is believed by some to have caused this year’s drastic cooling, but this also means one must accept that 1998’s considerable warming (baseline assumed correct) was artificially spiked by El Nino (not AGW). I’m personally not convinced by either “La Nina” or “El Nino.” These unruly siblings of Pacific water temperature antagonism have almost become revisionist excuses to backtrack on failed climate and weather predictions, like the recent “awful hurricane seasons” that failed to materialize (i.e., global warming is being offset by La Nina, and thus, weaker hurricanes). And let’s not forget the failed prediction about the temperature this winter (it was going to be REALLY WARM), remember? And if 1998 has been the warmest, why didn’t we have the “worst” hurricanes that year (instead of the horrible 2005)?

Okay, so they’re reluctantly admitting that global warming ended 10 YEARS AGO! Are you zombie-sheep out there getting that message, which certain groups (media, political elements, scientists with agendas, etc.) are trying desperately to frame in antithetical verbiage (such as espoused throughout most of the article below) that holds on to the global warming farce?

Now, here in this article is another prediction from a so-called “expert.” His prediction is that after La Nina is over, our global temperature will rise back up and surpass 1998’s high; again, that’s if you believe the baseline that marks 1998 as the year containing the highest global mean temperature. So, let’s keep this prediction in mind as we watch time go by. What will you believers do when this prediction fails as so many others have?

Will it be like Al Gore’s prediction that we’re doomed within 10 years due to AGW (prediction issued in January 2006)? Will it be like any of the countless other doomsday predictions, or even the recent one from the British Chicken Little? Will it be like the prediction that (after Katrina) we were going to have stronger and stronger cyclones due to global warming (which didn’t happen and has sense been discounted)?

Or could it be that all this global warming nonsense has been taking us all for a giant BS ride? Time and truth will cast their verdict. I believe they have already cast their verdict. The temperature HAS NOT surpassed the so-called “high” of 1998 in 10 years; this past year we had a record-shattering winter season, and global temperatures plummeted well below the mean (again, if you believe their baseline—which they just want us to blindly accept as completely unflawed).

And these two articles below are very strange, because just recently we saw this.

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Global temperatures 'to decrease':

This would mean that temperatures have not risen globally since 1998 when El Nino warmed the world.

A minority of scientists question whether this means global warming has peaked and argue the Earth has proved more resilient to greenhouse gases than predicted.

But Mr Jarraud insisted this was not the case and noted that 2008 temperatures would still be well above average for the century.

"When you look at climate change you should not look at any particular year," he said. "You should look at trends over a pretty long period and the trend of temperature globally is still very much indicative of warming.

Mr Scaife told the BBC: "What's happened now is that La Nina has come along and depressed temperatures slightly but these changes are very small compared to the long-term climate change signal, and in a few years time we are confident that the current record temperature of 1998 will be beaten when the La Nina has ended." - U.N. Forecasters: Global Temperatures to Decrease - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News:
The World Meteorological Organisation's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, said it was likely that La Nina, an abnormal cooling of sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, would continue into the summer.

If the forecast holds true, global temperatures will not have risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.
