So, will the military subjugation of Ireland by the English Parliamentarians under Cromwell in 1652 now be followed by the virtual takeover of the very skylines and horizons by gigantic (and thoroughly useless) British mainland-powering 600-foot high wind turbines in 2015?
After all, if the Irish are daft enough to sign up to the stupid ideas of Global Warming, whatever that may mean, they should live up to those ideas by hosting the turbine equipment so disliked by the English.
It allowed forecasts to be made using a combination of satellite data and computer models and traditional techniques such as observing insects, flowers and pot blowing, where herbs are placed into a pot buried in the ground which the rainmaker blows into through a pipe, listening for coming winds.
I always did reckon that whole ‘Gorbals Worming’ bunch was full of hot air, and here, at last, is the proof.
THE BBC was criticised by climate change sceptics yesterday after it emerged that their views will get less coverage because they differ from mainline scientific opinion.
In a report by its governing body, the BBC Trust, the corporation was urged to focus less on opponents of the “majority consensus” in its programmes. It said coverage should not be tailored to represent a “false balance” of opinion if one side came from a minority group.
What a bunch of hypocrites. The BBC has been to the fore in advocating eco-lunacy and anytime a critics such as myself was afforded a few nano-seconds to argue that this is faux science we were shot down anyway. Now we are not to be given even those few seconds. The science is settled, I guess. The facts are clear, it seems. AGW is an article of faith for the BBC and none may dissent on the license-payer funded State Broadcaster.
Just one small detail…
I suppose one could extend the logic of this report to suggest that Islam should stop getting the vast amount of time it enjoys on the State Broadcaster given the small minority of people who belong to this faith? Looking forward to the BBC pursuing their own logic.
Real scientists speak, and what they say is both delicious and portentious. Via WUWT, it looks as if we’re in for a solar minimum and, as the press release states, that could rather affect the climate. There’s talk of a second Maunder Minimum in the offing which really would put a nip in the air.
It’s delicious not just because the skiing would great but also because the AGW cultists might shut up for once. They might, though I doubt it, astonished though they would be to find that the sun does have something of an effect on the climate afterall. Despite Delingpole’s understandable excitement the warmists are as faithful as any zealot. My money would be on yet new ways to rob us unless we burn Parliament to keep warm.
Standing around the blackened carcass of Parliament may just be where some of us end up since, if it comes to pass, the days of cold will be arriving with the blackouts that will be due wholly to government negligence, ineptitude and adoption of Gaia worship as the state faith.
To coincide with silly Earth Hour, millions of people will this evening celebrate human achievement by simply going about their business freely.
While greenies sit in the dark, normal people will be cooking dinner, going to the pub, watching a film or driving their cars. How will you celebrate the miracle of human capitalistic achievement? There’s no limit to what you can do because you only have to live your live as normal and avoid being the kind of mean person who regards themselves as ethical.
So my home will be ablaze with light in honour of the human miracle of instant heat, light and energy. The lights will burn at the flick of a switch, something almost all humans who ever lived could not imagine. The sky will light in honour of civilisation, markets and liberty.
“Copenhagen takes the prize, for consummating the biggest fraud in history — a vast scheme of financial appropriation, premised upon rogue science, from tainted research. This conclusion has become irresistible after the exposure of thousands of e-mails and other documents, revealing the heart of the enterprise: the creation of convenient climate models from massaged numbers, after discarding raw data to make the findings uncheckable. (my emphasis)
But what began as a method to extort research money has spread — through successive world political jamborees at Rio, Kyoto, and now Copenhagen — into something out of all proportion to conventional fraud. Parasitical vested interests (including now the organized kleptocracies of the Third World) have been assembled on such a colossal scale, that even the revelation of the original fraud can do nothing to break their momentum; any more than the 31,000-plus signatures of dissenting scientists on a U.S. petition last year could convince the media that there is no scientific consensus whatever behind the “anthropogenic global warming” propaganda.
The very premise is ludicrous: demonizing carbon dioxide as a “pollutant,” when it is a vital part of the Earth’s atmosphere, absolutely essential not only to plant life but everything that depends on plants.
This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under the usual radical Obama appointment (Lisa P. Jackson), did something that could be fairly described as insane. It declared carbon dioxide and five other benign atmospheric “greenhouse gases” to be threats to public health, thus awarding itself extraordinary regulatory power over the entire economy, beyond reach of the U.S. Congress.”
“Note the identical, professionally printed, color-coordinated yellow and black signs. This is what Astroturf–fake grass roots–looks like. The signs use the same colors as the International ANSWER signs that are ubiquitous at far-left rallies here in the U.S., but carry no identifier. It would be interesting to know who paid for the signs, and whether the same organization that bought the signs also paid for the demonstrators.”
“McAleer, a veteran journalist and film maker, has recently made a documentary “Not Evil Just Wrong’ which takes a sceptical look at the science and politics behind Global Warming concerns.
He asked Professor Schneider about his opinions on Climategate……During some testy exchanges with McAleer, UN officials and Professor Schneider’s assistants twice tried to cut short McAleer’s question.
However as the press conference drew to a close Professor Schneider’s assistant called armed UN security guards to the room. They held McAleer and aggressively ordered cameraman Ian Foster to stop filming. The guard threatened to take away the camera and expel the film crew from the conference if they did not obey his instructions to stop filming Professor Schneider.
The guard demanded to look at the film crews press credentials and refused to allow them to film until Professor Schneider left the room. McAleer said he was disappointed by Professor Schneider’s behaviour.
“It was a press conference. Climategate is a major story – it goes to the heart of the Global Warming debate by calling into question the scientific data and the integrity of many scientists involved.”
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to? Read UNIONISM DECAYED 1997-2007 - It's my first book and it explains what happens when you seeek to appease terrorists and call it peace. It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
