What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Carl Sagan:- “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

A troll dropped his shit on a thread at http://wattsupwiththat.com and crept off. This is that:


Dr James Lawrence Powell – “Why Climate Deniers Have No Scientific Credibility – In One Pie Chart”

I take a couple of issues with it. Not least of which is the claim that almost 40,000 papers were read, to some extent, by this guy, albeit with some help from usual suspects, SS crackwhores Crook and Vermicelli – even if they ‘only’ read the titles and abstracts that is a lot of time invested.

This ‘scientist’ asks others to provide evidence that his and his cohort’s guesswork is erroneous. [FAIL]. Err, that’s your job. If your guesswork was falsifiable – BTW we know it is NOT falsifiable, therefore it is not graced with the epithet of ‘hypothesis’ – the FACT that no-one has done so yet is not a problem for sceptics. It is your, and your congregation’s problem. Why should this have to be continuously pointed out to you guys? You are educated?

So. At one end of this particular straw-man turkey sub Dr James Lawrence Powell claims to have read “…whatever combination of titles, abstracts, and entire articles was necessary to identify articles that “reject” human-caused global warming …”, Nearly 40,000 articles. and at the bottom of his ‘Hot Brown Sandwich’ we find “…We know that the earth is warming and that human emissions of greenhouse gases are the primary cause. These are known facts about which virtually all publishing scientists agree …” [FAIL]

That is a lot of effort spent to jump to a wrong conclusion. If I had put this much work into a project I would probably notice that I was investigating the wrong premise. After 10 years of wading in this mire I have only observed two, maybe three eccentrics who claim that there was no warming in the last quarter of the 20th Century – the rest of us seem to reject the human causation will cause a catastrophe up the road aspect to varying degree[pun intended].

He bases this conclusion on zero evidence. That elusive ‘magic bullet’ that he so wishes existed in his closed circuit of projection: “… had any of these articles presented the magic bullet that falsifies proves human-caused global warming, that article would be on its way to becoming one of the most-cited in the history of science.” Fixed That For Ya Dr Powell

I read some of his stuff at http://www.jamespowell.org/Blog/Blog.php Whatever combination of titles, abstracts, and entire articles was necessary to identify articles that show his joy of life in the echo chambers of “… ClimateProgress.org, RealClimate.org, and SkepticalScience.com …” because I cannot comment at desmogblog where the ‘article’ is posted and his homepage does not allow commentary. Quelle sur-fucking-prise.

Also, on Thu, Dec 8 2011 he wrote “… Why is sea level rising faster than any time in history? …” [FAIL] He is a geologist. Not a very good one it would appear. The guy is a paid advocate out of the Gore mould. I wont be wasting any more time on him. 3 strikes. Get out.

… and the strawman? The entire premise of the article is that proof of warming is proof that bad monkeys did it by setting fire to things. No wonder he ‘works’ with the SS (Cook and Nuccitelli) and worships the investigative skillz of Oreskes. He is a turd eater. He is merely regurgitating prior work:


This joker is barking up the wrong red herring.

They know, that’s WHY they are so slow.

George Orwell :- “We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”

The nozzle of anthropogenic global warming, climate change, ACC (etc, etc, ad nauseum) funding has been spraying billions of dollars around for a couple of decades now and we still await some modern science that shows unequivically, preferably, that mankind’s CO2 “emissions” could, are, have or will significantly impact global climate or weather patterns.

I put it to you, members of the jury, that the “scientists” involved in the most massive, costly and fraudulent scam in human history know full well that CO2 is a good guy but finding him to be the enemy is lucrative, career enhancing and politically empowering.

Take James Hansen for example. Cheat; “Turn off the AC and open the windows before I give this speech to simpleton Al Gore and congress would you.” Story teller; “I am 99% certain that…blather, blather.” Activist; “I flew here today to state that vandalism is our obligation when dealing with coal fired power stations.”

He knows there is no hurry. He knows that he will be retired before the truth about CO2 comes out. He knows that his crap has been all about money, power and the little green monsters’ agenda.

How may we prove they don’t have our best interests at heart. Dangerous AGW as a result of our CO2 output is bullshit and those who espouse cap and trade, carbon credits, the premature greening of industry and forcing taxation to mitigate an unreal problem are either ignorant of the facts or wilfully misleading us.

This will lead to people believeing that ALL the policies, decisions and judgements of said politicians are false, lies and propaganda produced solely to further an ideal that they would rather we didn’t see, let alone question.

It has gone beyond the obvious lie that CO2 is bad for anyone or any living thing. It has gone beyond the fairy tales created to ensure the funding teat pumps out the milk and honey of someone else’s hard work into the pockets of proven liers, shams, fraudsters, snake-oil salesmen and ex-lawyers , ex-politicians and ex-humans.

Climate science, such as it it, has proven the idiocy of the masses and the elitist superiority complexes of the scum who rule us from the top of the barrel and will soon become the petard with which we may hoist those same leeches is justice of the divine kind.

For every cockroach there are a dozen diamonds in the rough such as Bob Carter. How do we know this? Because the slimeballs like joe romm act like wounded and dangerous animals and screech exceeding loud if someone disturbs their nightmares or steps foot in their nasty, foul smelling pits of religeous zealotry and obvious, wilful denial. In fact the word “denialists”, wielded so freely by those screeching morons who “believe” CO2 is “not good”, should be used solely for the fools who are driving us down the road to poverty and joe romm is a denialist par excellence. He has a devoted following of equally blind sheeple who orgasm at his every exxageration and the putrid filth that drips like venom from his feotid excuse for brain function. These people call for death squads to visit anyone who disagrees that the end of the world will happen because of CO2 inside the next century. Moron is too polite a word to describe these revisionist, lying, fake, backward, ill and broken remnants. Have they not noticed how cold it has become? Worldwide? Oh, but that is weather you denialist you.

So what happened here?


A fortyfive (45) year downward trend in world temperatures (you may use any of the global datasets available) as CO2 levels climbed by at least the same degree as they do today today.

They know. Don’t let go of that fact. Same with the language – it is Global Warming, NOT Climate Change that we are being clubbed with. This can be our strength when disproving their lies and tactics.

Thankfully someone with enough staff to do the job, the sanity to see the need and the desire to see it through has just produced a new U.S. Senate Minority Report;

More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims. Scientists Continue to Debunk “Consensus” in 2008

Wrap up well people. This is going to be a cold winter in the Northern Hemisphere and next year isn’t going to be much better. The oceans rule World Climate, not CO2.

Heat or Eat?

 Richard S Lindzen :- “In brief, we have the new paradigm where simulation and programs have replaced theory and observation, where government largely determines the nature of scientific activity, and where the primary role of professional societies is the lobbying of the government for special advantage.”

A lot of people face a stark choice this winter. Stay warm, or eat? It would be simplistic to say that bad choices by government regarding the mitigation of CO2 emissions is the main reason, but so would blaming the credit crunch. The economic crisis, coupled with the inconvenient cold, is causing the warmista to shriek more loudly that their dissonance must be calmed. We must not, according to them, take our eye off the climate crisis. Well, here is the news:

There were several football matches postponed on Tue 28th Oct – and not just northern (UK) ones either – and we hardly ever abandon matches that have started and it is outside the “normal” time frame to do so for frost, sleet or snow. Meanwhile the blinkered UK government were spending 6 hours destroying the future economy of that once great nation by voting to pass a bill that will “limit” emissions by 80% by sometime after they have all retired. Yeah right.

A Google search for “cold weather records” produces some gems most of the time but recently we see cold records being beaten every day and snowfall extent and depth records are also increasing, and it is still not yet November.

The energy companies believed, along with most of the western world, that warm weather was going to remain the “norm” and they had better cover their margins by increasing prices before falling, or flattening, demand crushed their profits. In the face of what seems, already, to be a severe winter on the way they may have to face windfall taxes before Christmas. I think the energy companies could be the canary in the coalmine for others to rethink the way CO2 is being presented as a “dangerous pollutant” by one pretender to the ultimate crown.

Thankfully “Joe (the plumber) Average” knows a tax scam when he sees one. Recent polls, albeit asking the usual loaded questions, have revealed that roughly 18% of those questioned “believed” in man made global warming. The same respondent faces higher food bills at the supermarket, bigger heating bills and higher pump prices for most fuels as a direct result of this collective insanity that claims the gas that gives us all of the above is killing us, going to kill us or going to kill our children.

I cannot sufficiently express my contempt for the politicians who refuse to investigate the properties of CO2, the public for not standing up to be counted, but mostly, the scientists who nuzzle the teat of funding and gorge at the public trough. It gets wearying to ask the same questions of those who supposedly know. Where is the evidence that CO2 causes any kind of imbalance in the world’s energy flux? Where is the science stating that CO2 residence time is anything other than <10 years? Where is the science stating that a “runaway” effect will take place because of the above?

Here is some that shows how much of the research that would answer the above questions has been suppressed. The whole site is informative but I offer just this one paper – http://folk.uio.no/tomvs/esef/ESEF3VO2.pdf – for your perusal today.

As a species we are being asked to spend trillions of dollars to prevent an unproven future disaster yet we are apparently unwilling to part with a few millions to address the questions whose answers could prevent egregious economic breakdown, allow us to concentrate on the real pollutants and dissuade me that a power, and tax, grab is under way.

Instead, as a result of inaction and data manipulation I, for one, see that there is zero problem from our CO2 emissons that are allowing our modern world to exist, keeping us warm and feeding us and that anyone who joins the crusade to demonize the life giving gas is destitute of morals, science and the hope that mankind, as it has every time it has faced a problem, will triumph over the political darkness that claims CO2 is bad, m’kay.

It is almost as if there is a concerted effort to create and perpetuate a “big lie” around the most vital component of life we know as CO2. Every politician and most of the authority societies and unions are competing with one another to bolster this lie. It beggars belief. People will die but the perpetrators will get golden handshakes, golden parachutes and lecture circuit riches in retirement. Excuse me while I puke.

Normal Warming Will Be Resumed As Soon As Technically Possible.

Mark Twain :-
“In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.”

There is a movement underway to kill science. I will purposefully choose evangelical words and phrases from here on in. When likening AGW to a creed we are not far off the mark. Science and religion have recently swapped hats. We need a crusade to overturn the demagogic ideologues.

The satanic steamroller has a lot of momentum already.
Those scientists who have already thrown their weight behind it will fight tooth and claw to prevent opposing views from being debated, oh yeah, sorry, that is already happening. Politicians will not admit they were suckered, ever, on any subject, so don’t expect to get anything but short shrift from that quarter. The mainstream media will do as they are told, they abandoned the journalistic code http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp some time back and continue to draw salaries for propagating propaganda to the exclusion of all else, particularly the production and disbursement of unbiased news reporting. They all sing from the same hymnbook.
The Citizens, meanwhile, http://www.thetrumpet.com/index.php?q=4975.3240.0.0 will go about their business in their manufactured, misinformed, myopic daze. Their suppressed guilt at being able to watch television, drink Starbucks and drive their SUV whilst other inhabitants of planet Earth are starving is being used against them while they sleep. Any truly sentient 1st world person has that guilt and the greens drip their dogma through this crack into our very subconscious. We begin to think that maybe there really are too many people and not enough resources. Maybe the world would be a better place if we stopped using oil and coal to power our infernal machine. Maybe a new stone age is the best option. Maybe following the credo of taxation leading to mitigation is the only path to that goal. Let us accept the draconian measures put forward by those paragons of truth and integrity such as Al Gore and the UN IPCC. After all they got the Dynamite prize for peace did they not? This endorsement surely trumps anything mere scientists can provide. After all our leaders were chosen so as to help us make these informed decisions and to implement policy in our best interests.

There has been a recent test on ABC “news”.
They attacked Fred Singer and a lot of people have reacted strongly http://www.abcnews.go.com/Technology/GlobalWarming/comments?type=story&id=4506059 but I feel that there will be no apology given, much less a platform for Fred to defend himself. The usual, false, accusation that he was funded by “Big Oil” is foremost in any attack on Fred but they miss a pertinent point. Whatever came out of “the fossil fuel industry’s multi-million dollar, years long campaign of propaganda to misinform the American public about the reality of global warming”? Where are all the papers, peer reviewed or otherwise, disproving MMGW?

Some may feel this incredible assault was a show of strength, proving that the MSM can do anything. They besmirch one of the world’s most luminous innovators and ignore, or even hide his research and yet promote a proven liar and his science fiction horror story to the exclusion of all else – especially the truth. A set of lies that has, perversely but fittingly, garnered a “Fantasy land” award for a documentary not to mention $100,000,000 in the folding stuff inside the last 8(eight) years for its “creator”. We are through the looking glass. Freedom is slavery.

It all comes down to budgets and agenda. Environmentalism run rampant will produce the diametrical opposite to its stated aims. Maybe that is precisely its adherents’ hidden agenda. We are already seeing world markets in corn, wheat and rice being malformed by an equally twisted belief that food should be turned into fuel even when it is more damaging to the biosphere, more likely to lead to famine and more likely to stall real alternative developments than allowing the free market to prevail. The founder of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore has stated that Greenpeace itself and its’ policies; “Tend strongly to be anti-human”, “anti science and technology”, “anti-trade and anti-capitalism”, “anti-business”, “anti-civilization”, and “invariably misleading”. Greenpeace are only one arrow in the fundamentalists’ quiver.

They ignore, purposefully, the tortuous and hazard strewn road that got us from the cave to the space station. We lived without fire. Miserably. We burned wood and still merely subsisted even when we discovered charcoal and invented metalworking. We found the energy locked up in coal and even the working classes began to live longer and enjoy a modicum of leisure time. Oil is merely the next, fortuitously discovered step on this path toward a world without waste. Thankfully we have hundreds of years of easily exploited reserves of oil and coal to see us through until we find better alternatives. Doubly fortunate is the fact that the only, long lived, output when we burn this treasure sensibly is plant food and we are nowhere near(less than 25%) to having optimum levels of that present in our atmosphere. Even if another China was to burst onto the scene we have centuries before a truly beneficial concentration is achieved. Meanwhile we are exporting to the whole world, especially the developing nations who are most in need of it, free fertilizer. Another hateful waste in the envious green eyes of the environmentalists. Why should the useless eaters get anything for free, especially unfettered amounts of the life giving gas?

There is merit in the argument that climate change, and global warming in particular, allowed us to thrive and expand yet now it and the accompanying increase in CO2, which preceded the other, is made out to be a dangerous threat to humanity. Pull the other one it has alarm bells on it.

Time is a luxury we no longer have, even though cooling is upon us and the Sun will soon out all these “learned” idiots, we are in the grip of dark forces that hide under a banner of green yet are anything but.

1200ppmv CO2 would be “Wonderful”

Dr. Joanne Simpson :-
“We all know the frailty of models concerning the air-surface system. We only need to watch the weather forecasts.”

Plant respiration and photosynthesis is a refrigeration process and causes overall cooling. The single experimentally proven result of an increase in CO2 levels is increased plant growth – both in speed and size. The current 383ppvm CO2 is considered to be “dangerously low for plants on earth” and the world would be a more lush one if we could somehow get levels up to three times that(1200-1500 ppmv would be wonderful) The greatest gift the developed nations can give to the third world is free fertilizer in the form of higher CO2 levels.

The UN IPCC and all those scientists and politicians who claim to support the “computer models” is in the business of creating a new world currency, and policy, that they alone control. They use this power to prevent third world countries from ever becoming developed, they will tax the living daylights out of anyone who can afford it – and most of them won’t even notice and they definitely won’t stop using airplanes and SUVs – and leave unchecked India and China who are now the largest producers of plant food, sorry CO2 that vital ingredient for life on Earth NOT a pollutant.

As with so much in this brave new world black has become white and CO2 will be blamed for the coming cold century yet carbon is the most miraculous of elements and it being put in such a bad light should show us all which way  the wind blows. There is an insidious dark agenda at play and when the proof arrives, in the form of a solar cycle that freezes all our assets, that agenda will be revealed for all to see. The Sun is coming to our rescue but, unfortunately, those of us living north of the tropics will feel it’s bite. I only hope that those people who have been suckered by this veil of lies will put their righteous fury, upon realizing the truth, into a campaign to expose the inherent inequity of “peer review” and “consensus” and hold the IPCC and Al Gore accountable for the, already, massive damage they have done to economies and lives. It would be nice if Al gave his Nobel and Oscar back – along with using the 100,000,000 dollars he has “accumulated” in the last 8 (eight) years to undo some of the harm. He could dissolve the carbon credit companies he co-owns with the bankers also.
Hey if they can try to give me nightmares I can dream can’t I?

Edith Sitwell :-
“The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth.”

Cold is the new Hot

Thomas Henry Huxley The Father of Science wrote:-
The improver of natural knowledge absolutely refuses to acknowledge authority, as such. For him, scepticism is the highest of duties; blind faith the one unpardonable sin.

Here we are then – freezing our assets off when all around are shouting “Anthropogenic Global Warming”. Not only that but scientists on both sides of the divide refuse to entertain the Sun did it let alone the planets did it. Some of them get quite upset when you claim that there are solar cycles that coincide with planetary cycles, most notably Jupiter’s. Some get protective of their own field maybe losing funding and credit because some civilian with zero academic qualifications has used a commonly available software and data to show that planetary alignments do have an inherent harmony and it has an effect on the Sun. Seems so obvious yet it infuriates climatologists and other scientists. They refuse point blank to entertain any idea that forces they can’t measure have any effect on the star at the center of our planetary system. If they were really on the side of skepticism, as all good scientists should be they would simply investigate the proposal with an open mind. Most would rather wave their hand to swat the pest away from their general area muttering “astrology, nut-case, unscientific” and the like. They hope that this will all just fade away…..

In which case: HERE BE MONSTERS –

Use of a digital orrery is recommended to speed your path to enlightenment. Take a heliocentric, isometric view of the solar system and pull back until all the planets can be observed in 3D in the program window. Then set the time. Pick a year such as 829AD, or 1010AD, the years the Nile froze. Yep – it has been that cold in human history at times. See how the planets were positioned then? Do you think there may be other, similar, climate events at other times that share the same configuration of planetary bodies if you press the “animate” button? Correlate. Are you getting that tingle up your spine? That mixture of “it cannot be that simple” and “why didn’t I think of this” that points to a theory “ringing true” in the receptive ears of an open-minded researcher. Ah. I remember it well. When I was first shown this system the utter elegance and obvious repeatability had me slack jawed in envy and awe. We can predict the weather (or climate/whatever;-) and this gives us the chance to save lives and improve the circumstances of our fellow man.

So much for our carbon footprints. So much for CO2 being a forcing on climate, or weather depending on if you believe they are the same or not, or even being a greenhouse gas – settled science indeed. The world is waking up to the facts on climate change. Global warming is being used to scare us and fix tax policy and a global currency around a premise that humans caused the small and benign warming we have felt in the last few decades by their CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions yet nothing could be further from the truth. Carbon credit trading is a crime against humanity for several reasons which will be laid out here along with further elucidation on The System discovered by Ulric Lyons in 2006.
