GASP!: We must ration meat and milk!

The scare tactics and silly "solutions" never cease. More fear and hysteria available for you in the warmlist and our other GASP! posts.

Meat must be rationed to four portions a week, says report on climate change | Environment | The Guardian:

People will have to be rationed to four modest portions of meat and one litre of milk a week if the world is to avoid run-away climate change, a major new report warns.

The report, by the Food Climate Research Network, based at the University of Surrey, also says total food consumption should be reduced, especially "low nutritional value" treats such as alcohol, sweets and chocolates.

It urges people to return to habits their mothers or grandmothers would have been familiar with: buying locally in-season products, cooking in bulk and in pots with lids or pressure cookers, avoiding waste and walking to the shops - alongside more modern tips such as using the microwave and internet shopping.

The report goes much further than any previous advice after mounting concern about the impact of the livestock industry on greenhouse gases and rising food prices. It follows a four-year study of the impact of food on climate change and is thought to be the most thorough study of its kind.

Climate skeptic misrepresented by BBC?

No! Please! Say it ain't so! LOL!

When a hysterical media has no firm scientific (or even empirical) footing on which to stand anymore, all that's left for it to do is misrepresent the other side to continue spreading propaganda like a faithful cultist. More on Monckton here in a previous blog post.

BBC investigated after peer says climate change programme was 'one-sided polemic' | Mail Online:

The BBC is being investigated by television watchdogs after a leading climate change sceptic claimed his views were deliberately misrepresented.

Lord Monckton, a former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, says he was made to look like a ‘potty peer’ on a TV programme that ‘was a one-sided polemic for the new religion of global warming’.

Earth: The Climate Wars, which was broadcast on BBC 2, was billed as a definitive guide to the history of global warming, including arguments for and against.

During the series, Dr Iain Stewart, a geologist, interviewed leading climate change sceptics, including Lord Monckton. But the peer complained to Ofcom that the broadcast had been unfairly edited.

Record cold in South Africa

Empirical evidence just continues to mount. Har-har, hardy-har-har. It's cold...not WARM!

News - Environment: Surprise spring snowfalls blanket KZN:

Parts of KwaZulu-Natal were transformed into a "winter wonderland" after snowfalls blanketed several areas of the province.

Temperatures plummeted into the low teens, with residents of Kokstad and Giants Castle waking up to 0C.

Durban experienced its coldest September night in recorded history on Friday night.

Snowfalls were reported in Kokstad, Matatiele, Underberg, Mooi River, Bulwer, Himeville and Nottingham Road.

Several roads in the province were closed and people were advised not to go snow hunting, as they risked becoming stuck in traffic and not being able to keep themselves warm.

The road between Harding and Kokstad was closed for most of yesterday, but has since been reopened.

Where Idiots Take Us

Anarchy under a new guise? I’ve made the argument before that the global warming cult is merely a means to advance radical left-wing ideas and philosophies in a world that has mostly turned off to socialism and communism. This surely won’t make the majority British AGW disbelievers happy.

Oh BTW, the founder of Greenpeace says global warming is BS. Just thought you sheep would like to know...

Cleared: Jury decides that threat of global warming justifies breaking the law:

The threat of global warming is so great that campaigners were justified in causing more than £35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station, a jury decided yesterday. In a verdict that will have shocked ministers and energy companies the jury at Maidstone Crown Court cleared six Greenpeace activists of criminal damage.

Jurors accepted defence arguments that the six had a "lawful excuse" to damage property at Kingsnorth power station in Kent to prevent even greater damage caused by climate change. The defence of "lawful excuse" under the Criminal Damage Act 1971 allows damage to be caused to property to prevent even greater damage – such as breaking down the door of a burning house to tackle a fire.

The not-guilty verdict, delivered after two days and greeted with cheers in the courtroom, raises the stakes for the most pressing issue on Britain's green agenda and could encourage further direct action.

Animal Death-Watch: Frog NOT extinct after all

You mean to say scientists and researchers were WRONG about something?! No, say it ain’t so! More about AGW-caused "extinctions" on the warmlist.

'Extinct' Frog Found Alive and Well in Australia:

SYDNEY, Australia — A tiny frog species thought by many experts to be extinct has been rediscovered alive and well in a remote area of Australia's tropical north, researchers said Thursday.

The 1.5 inch-long Armoured Mistfrog had not been seen since 1991, and many experts assumed it had been wiped out by a devastating fungus that struck northern Queensland state.


"A lot of us were starting to believe it had gone extinct, so to discover it now is amazing," Hoskin said. "It means some of the other species that are missing could potentially just be hidden away along some of the streams up there."

GASP!: Glaciers gone by 2050

The BS scare tactics and propaganda aimed squarely at indoctrinating the zombies in our society are unceasing. This study was brought to you by the same fanatics who brought you such memorable fear treatises as:

...the list is unending and quite ridiculous!

Ice melt predictions are a common alarmist tactic, but don’t fall for it. The climate cyclically fluctuates; history has shown us this clearly, and we’re currently in a cooling trend that followed a warming trend. Ice does melt but it also reforms in the cool seasons. Global mean temperatures have not warmed since 1998, while CO2 levels have continued higher; this is fairly convincing evidence to all but the staunchest of cult members that the very core of the global warming theory is flawed, junk science.

My prediction? The Pyrenees glaciers will not be gone by 2050. Let’s look at other failed predictions of alarmists, and don’t forget the predictions of doom yet to come—from Prince Charles’ portent of doom to Al Gore’s to the Nobel Dodo’s. We’re all going to be just fine. You’ll see...

Other media fear pieces can be read at the warmlist and in the GASP! series.

Study: Pyrenees Glaciers May Be Gone by 2050:

The crisp, white glaciers of the Pyrenees, the mountain range along the border between France and Spain, have substantially receded in the past 15 years and could disappear by 2050 due to global warming, a new study suggests.

The retreat of glaciers in Greenland and areas like Glacier National Park have been well-documented, but less well-studied are the situations of alpine glaciers around the world.

Researchers at the University of Cantabria, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Valladolid compiled data from current and historic studies of the glaciers in the high mountain regions of the Iberian Peninsula to gauge how climate change has affected these icy behemoths.

"High mountains are particularly sensitive areas to climate and environmental changes, and how glaciers evolve there in response to climate change is one of the most effective indicators of current global warming," said study leader Juan José González Trueba.

Large Hadron Collider and Predictions

This week, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) operated by CERN fired up their 17-mile long particle accelerator again in a series of test runs preceding the much anticipated main experiment--firing two proton streams into each other at near the speed of light. Scientists expect to learn all sorts of things from these ambitious experiments, including whether theorized particles and other dimensions exist.

Of course, there are other dissenting "scientists" (including a "smart" German scientist) who claim that the smart people at CERN will create miniature black holes that will destroy the planet. These folks are cut from the same cloth of scientists who said that setting off the atomic bomb in 1945 would ignite the Earth's atmosphere. And they're also the same "smart ones" who say that manmade CO2 is causing a runaway greenhouse effect on Earth (global warming or manmade climate change), which is also preposterous.

My prediction: We'll still be here after the proton smash experiment at the LHC. We'll still be here and doing fine in 100 years too, and global warming will be tossed into the dustbin of scientific stupidity (probably long before then).

Aussie government scientist lets 'cat out of bag'

The scam disintegrates yet further. Australia isn't buying it. The U.K. isn't buying it. Most THINKING Americans aren't buying it either. It's a farce...it's utter nonsense. Unless you're a complete dimwit, which apparently many of you believers are.

Relax, truth has surfaced | Herald Sun:

KEVIN Rudd's global warming guru has finally - and reluctantly - exposed the con. Ignore everything the Government has told you.

The truth, conceded Professor Ross Garnaut last week, is that it really is cheaper for Australians to do nothing about global warming.

And, no, it's not immoral to figure there's no point spending big money to "stop" this warming when it won't make a blind bit of difference.

No wonder the Rudd Government refuses to comment on Garnaut's latest report, released on Friday. Much of the argument for its grand plan to make us slash emissions from 2010 has just been destroyed.

I guess it's just hoping no journalists, most of whom are warming believers, will care to notice what Garnaut has just admitted through gritted teeth. As far as I can tell, only the Daily Telegraph's Piers Akerman has drawn the unmistakable conclusions.

Indian Vegetarian: Eat Less Meat to Fight AGW

I think the sentence I highlighted below says it all; AGW, as a political vehicle, is a liberal boondoggle and myth that is designed to normalize all sorts of left-of-center ideals--like vegetarianism, for example. This guy is probably a Hindu, and eating meat is strictly forbidden in that religion.

Remember how crazy the lefties got when Al Gore wouldn't stop eating his beef? Why should that bit of hypocrisy matter? Al Gore can't halt his ravenous consumption of energy either.

Man, that steak I just ate for dinner sure was good. Yum, yum!

UN says eat less meat to curb global warming | Environment | The Observer:

People should have one meat-free day a week if they want to make a personal and effective sacrifice that would help tackle climate change, the world's leading authority on global warming has told The Observer

Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which last year earned a joint share of the Nobel Peace Prize, said that people should then go on to reduce their meat consumption even further.

His comments are the most controversial advice yet provided by the panel on how individuals can help tackle global warning.


'Give up meat for one day [a week] initially, and decrease it from there,' said the Indian economist, who is a vegetarian.

U.K. Environment Minister: AGW is pseudo-religion

The British continue to lead the way, beyond the stupidity of their offspring cult's vapid, fanatical belief in global warming, headed by idiot-in-chief, Al Gore.

Unfortunately, Minister Wilson, liberal politicians on this side of the pond believe we should harm the economy to fight nonexistent global warming. At least our British friends are standing up to the stupid there, while we coddle our own.

BBC NEWS | UK | Northern Ireland | Wilson row over green 'alarmists':

The Environment Minister Sammy Wilson has angered green campaigners by describing their view on climate change as a "hysterical psuedo-religion".

In an article in the News Letter, Mr Wilson said he believed it occurred naturally and was not man-made. "Resources should be used to adapt to the consequences of climate change, rather than King Canute-style vainly trying to stop it," said the minister.

Peter Doran of the Green Party said it was a "deeply irresponsible message."

Mr Wilson said he refused to "blindly accept" the need to make significant changes to the economy to stop climate change.

"The tactic used by the "green gang" is to label anyone who dares disagree with their view of climate change as some kind of nutcase who denies scientific fact," he said.

The minister said he accepted climate change can occur, but does not believe the cause has been identified. "Reasoned debate must replace the scaremongering of the green climate alarmists."

No sunspots in Aug 2008! First in 100 years!

Hey AGW-believing morons...it's real simple: Sun cools, Earth cools. Sun heats up, Earth heats up.

Interesting how we've had such a cool summer and record cold previous winter...

This is such poetic justice; writhe and wiggle, Al Gore! But remember, we skeptics are just 'seizing on a cold spell to debunk global warming.' Puh-leaze! AGW is debunking itself just fine, thank you.

DailyTech - Sun Makes History: First Spotless Month in a Century:

Drop in solar activity has potential effect for climate on earth.

The sun has reached a milestone not seen for nearly 100 years: an entire month has passed without a single visible sunspot being noted.

The event is significant as many climatologists now believe solar magnetic activity – which determines the number of sunspots -- is an influencing factor for climate on earth.

According to data from Mount Wilson Observatory, UCLA, more than an entire month has passed without a spot. The last time such an event occurred was June of 1913. Sunspot data has been collected since 1749.

When the sun is active, it's not uncommon to see sunspot numbers of 100 or more in a single month. Every 11 years, activity slows, and numbers briefly drop to near-zero. Normally sunspots return very quickly, as a new cycle begins.

But this year -- which corresponds to the start of Solar Cycle 24 -- has been extraordinarily long and quiet, with the first seven months averaging a sunspot number of only 3. August followed with none at all. The astonishing rapid drop of the past year has defied predictions, and caught nearly all astronomers by surprise.
