Seeding the Party Line

By Mike Cunningham On June 13th, 2015 at 12:03 pm

I am a regular listener to the Farming Programme, broadcast just before 6.00 a.m. weekdays, with a longer stint on a Saturday. It is presented and produced almost totally by women; and I make that observation with the clarifying comments that it is either possibly a task which is reserved for the fairer sex, or equally a task which is deemed to be ‘the pits’ as far as the BBC higher echelons agree, Either way, it is normally a well-presented, lucid and factual commentary upon the various sections of agriculture within Britain today.

You learn a lot by just listening to the usually well-informed reporters, as they bring their stories, comment and news about British farms and farmers to the radio waves, and hence, to our ears.You would have heard about the lunacies perpetrated on English farmers by the Labour Farm Ministers as they negotiated and set fast the Subsidy Regime. Read and absorb the information within this online review, as it details, in painful precision, how badly English farmers are treated by the Agency in question.

But I do not write in unqualified support of this small radio programme, mainly because there has been a sinister increase in pushing and praising schemes which are loved by the liberal-lefties at the BBC, along with buzz-phrases for those same schemes.There has been a long term effort to bring about acceptance of GM plants, seeds and the like; inclusive of interviews with two farmers, one organic, one not; wherein both used the exact words “As we now have to feed the Global world, GM would make things so much easier.” Now say I am cynical, but the only people who actually benefit from GM crops are the multi-nationals, such as Monsanto, who make those Frankenstein foods possible, and market them with such vigour. The Farming Programme producers and reporters also seem to have a love-affair with Climate Change, or Global Warbling, or whatever, and treat it as a fact, instead of an unproven, but very, very expensive theory supported by the Greenies, most politicians and very few truly independent scientists.

But there again, if you raise your concerns with this huge publicly-funded broacasting monolith; you are just ignored, so the question must be asked, ‘Why indeed bother?

First time for everything!

At my span of years, I thought I would have been able to state that I had seen and witnessed most things; that there wasn’t much that could surprise me: and then blow me down if the time comes when I have to admit a certain admiration for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds!

I mean, 166 wind turbines defeated by a bloody bird; Red-Throated Divers, no less. Sometimes, just sometimes, the mills just grind slowly, but very, very finely!

…an ill wind that blows some good!

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?

According to the BBC, the foundation documents will be signed today, and the windmills which England definitely does not want will be miraculously transferred to the bogs of five counties of the Republic.

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.

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

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 SCIENCE IS SETTLED FOR THE BIASED BBC..

By David Vance On July 22nd, 2011 at 8:47 am

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.

And are we all smiling?

So, are you all ready to pay £1000’s extra just because this lying pillock says he believes in Global bloody Warming?

 

THE SUNSPOTS FADE

By Pete Moore On June 15th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

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.

RUSSIAN HEATWAVE JUST A HEATWAVE

Who says so?

Via Timmy we find that the NOAA says so.

Best not listen to those who are paid to lie on behalf of the British government then.

 

CELEBRATE HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT HOUR

By ATWadmin On March 27th, 2010 at 2:14 pm

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.

Remember, it’s Earth Hour every hour in North Korea.

Human Achievement Hour 2010 is will be between 8.30pm and 9.30pm today.
