Discovery Channel gunman was Algore disciple

James Lee, the gunman who stormed the Discovery Channel headquarters, taking three hostages before he was shot and killed by police last Wednesday, apparently had a motive for his madness.

As it turns out, Lee had a chance before his death to talk for ten minutes to an NBC producer and share his concerns. It turns out he was upset over the “lack of global warming coverage” on television, citing a viewing of the Algore propaganda film, An Inconvenient Truth, as an “awakening moment” for him.

Of course, Michael Moore immediately started planning his next film to focus on how Lee was inspired by “eight years of Bush-Cheney.” And whined on his Twitter account, “How come no one ever takes hostages after seeing one of my propaganda pieces?” (Psst… hey Mikey… it’s because no one ever finds you home.) Whatever.

Anyway, random celebrity teasing aside, it seems Algore now has blood on his hands for his little propaganda piece. Try that on for size as an inconvenient truth, Al! The loss of James Lee falls on you, buck-o!

It’s enough madness to make a fellow want to acquire a plane ticket, fly to Florida and look into some nice car rental deals. A few hours looking at the ocean ought be be enough to calm one’s frayed nerves…

Hey… why’s the water black?

As world freezes, Gore has head in global warming sand

Algore is nothing if not delusional. The former vice-prez is still trying to sell his global warming Kool-Aid, not only in spite of the academic fraud scandal at the University of East Anglia, but in spite of record cold temps being set even as I right this.

Iowa is reporting temperatures that are, on average, 30 degrees below normal. The East Coast is facing an almost unparalleled deep freeze, and Florida is concerned about the current orange crop harvest being spoiled by that same freeze.

Peru’s mountain people could be wiped out, according to some reports, but record low temps; Beijing, China is reporting temperatures colder than any recorded in the last 40 years.

And yet Algore still clings to his fraudulent photos of polar bears on ice cap shards and whines about the need for carbon credits? Still believe in global warming is as reliable as good kitchen faucets? What’s it gonna take, man?

Warming revisionism continues

Oliver Tickell, a true Algore zittohead, of the UK Guardian, wrote recently that in a planet only four degrees Celsius warmer, all we can do is, “prepare for extinction.”

OK, good, great, thanks for that. Then let’s drop the politics and enjoy the time we have left, shall we?

Let’s put that to the test. As I write this, it is a pleasant 72 degrees Fahrenheit outside my home office. That’s 22 degrees Celsius. And if it were four degrees Celsius warmer? Well, that’d make it 26 degrees Celsius and… 78 degrees Fahrenheit! Oh my God, head for the hills and don’t forget granny! Especially considering it was warmer than that all last week.

Heaven forbid we enter another period of time like the Medieval Warm Period (CE 800-1300), when Europe thrived and only doom-saying liberals were out of work. Why that’d be… paradise?

It seems no matter how much evidence flies in the face of their conclusions, global warming nuts like Algore and acolytes like Tickell will bend themselves into contortions to make anything that happens fit their theory. In early propaganda efforts, Gore was promoting double-digit warming numbers as though they were established, scientific fact.

Then the real scientists started speaking up and we found out that, at worst, it was more like a one-degree shift upward that peaked in the early 1990s and has been on the decline in the past decade or so. In fact, let us not forget that the winder of 2007-08 was so cold, it wiped out nearly a century of so-called global warming; the planetary temperature dropped a whole degree.

While Tickell’s piece, which would be more interesting reading if her were writing up a list of best diet pills, is still pushing warming, other pieces are now starting to attempt to incorporate global cooling – like a sudden new ice age – as fitting in with their theory.

Beware global warming, folks: you just might freeze to death! What idiocy.

NASA ’71: Humans the cause of coming ice age

Thanks mainly to a maniacal Algore and his mind-numbed robots (whom I will from hereon term “zittoheads” given the eco-friendly unwashed state of these idiots), most people think the planet is hurtling headlong into transforming into a ball of fire due to “global warming” caused by man’s use of fossil fuels.

But at least one scientist on Algore’s list of “qualified scientists” who agree with him actually was a “new Ice Age” proponent only 36 years ago. And he blamed the same culprit.

According to Investors.com, “On July 9, 1971, the [Washington] Post published a story headlined “U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming.” It told of a prediction by NASA and Columbia University scientist S.I. Rasool. The culprit: man’s use of fossil fuels.”

The Investors.com tale spins this way: one of the folks who helped Rasool come to his “new Ice Age” conclusion was a computer scientist named Dr. James Hansen, who was apparently a Columbia University research assistant at the time.

Dr. Hansen’s views have run the gauntlet in the past 36 years, from a new Ice Age believer to someone who didn’t worry about fossil fuels affecting global temperatures, to his current position of being an Algore zittohead.

Yes, we all know scientific theories are supposed to be disprovable; no one ever expected, however, that scientists like Dr. Hansen would treat scientific theories like a game of hopscotch. Apparently his scientific positions change almost as rapidly as market research results.

Way to pick some “qualified scientific opinions” to form your mythical “consensus” there, Al! With buddies like Dr. James Hansen, your enemies can just stand on the sidelines and watch you and your convenient lie implode all on its own.

After all, as Investors.com opined, “If Hansen wants to change positions again, the time is now. With NASA having recently revised historical temperature data that Hansen himself compiled, the door has been opened for him to embrace the ice age projections of the early 1970s. Could be he’s feeling a little chill in the air again.”

Consensus by committee? A communist tactic!

Former Vice-President and self-appointed expert on climate change, global warming conspiracy theorist and propagandist Algore has long touted the authority of his “global warming committee” that “finally has agreed there is a consensus that global warming is no longer a theory. It is established scientific fact.”

Of course, that’s bunk. But it took a real scientist from a completely different field of study to put the reason it’s bunk into the best wording possible.

At the recent Jerusalem Forgery Conference, speaking about alleged forgeries “unmasked” by Yuval Goren of Tel Aviv University, in which he has ultimately come to claim that perhaps as many as one-third of biblical artifacts with early inscriptions are modern forgeries, and has had his views backed up by a committee hand-selected to agree with him, received a verbal spanking from Gabriel Barkay.

Gabriel Barkay is a professor of Biblical archeology at Bar Ilan University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His academic areas of interest include the archeology of Jerusalem, burials and burial customs, and art, epigraphy, and glyptics in the Iron Age.

This is Barkay’s words on the validity of “committees” in establishing scientific truth. Cozy up in your home theater seating, because this one’s GREAT:

“If a committee made up of the most important experts in the world decides that the earth is flat, it is not going to make the earth flat,” Barkay told the assembled scholars. “Committees, I think, are good for communist regimes. They establish a view that has to be accepted by all, but they are not for scientific methods.”

Exactly. Words Algore and all his Algorian disciples are probably biologically incapable of grasping. For the rest of us, though, we should pay attention and guard against the global warming propaganda. The jury is anything BUT in!

Anything but green: Live Aid hypocrisy

Kermit the Frog’s words have never been truer; it’s not easy being green.

Of course, that assumes one is even trying. The celebs participating in Gore’s Live Aid event to promote the global warming is producing … a hell of a lot of energy waste! Refusing to fly anything but private jets, the “energy waiver offset credit”-loving crowd set to perform in Al Gore’s “Pollute-a-thon 2007” will be traveling 222,623.63 miles all together to get to and from the concert event.

London’s Daily Mail reports that, “The true environmental cost, as they transport their technicians, dancers and support staff, is likely to be far higher. The total carbon footprint of the event, taking into account the artists’ and spectators’ travel to the concert, and the energy consumption on the day, is likely to be at least 31,500 tonnes of carbon emissions, according to John Buckley of Carbonfootprint.com, who specialises in such calculations. Throw in the television audience and it comes to a staggering 74,500 tonnes. In comparison, the average Briton produces ten tonnes in a year. The concert will also generate some 1,025 tonnes of waste at the concert stadiums – much of which will go directly into landfill sites.”

At this rate, even the writing pens that “green” journalists covering the event use will find a way to pump out their own share of pollutants. Not so fun when you are expected to practice what you preach, is it, Gore and company?

Nobel winner Gore for Prez? Hillary’s nightmare!

The latest theory going around is that Al Gore will run for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination … but only if he wins the Nobel Peace Prize this year. But it doesn’t take Dr. Larry Shapiro to diagnose Gore’s real motivation: to influence the Nobel Prize Committee in its decision.

The fact that Gore is even nominated is a politically-motivated joke. His “Inconvenient Truth” movie has been documented to be so chock-full of lies and half-truths, it deserves not a Nobel Prize, but a Michael Moore Award for Inaccuracy In Media.

The poor polar bears on the ice caps? Totally fraudulent and misleading. Of course, don’t believe me. This whole global warming thing is a fraud. Check out the very informative BBC documentary, “The Great Global Warming Swindle.”

Since Mr. Gore liked bullying so much, two can play at that game: any school that requires students to view “An Inconvenient Truth” should also require students to view “The Great Global Warming Swindle” right alongside it, so that students can use their critical thinking skills and decide for themselves who’s right, and who actually lost the electoral vote in Florida in 2000.

Uh-oh: Bush caves on climate

One of the most heroic political acts of George W. Bush’s first time, prior to the challenges of September 11, 2001, was his willingness to go against the enviro-wacko sentiments of the previous administration and refuse to enact the one-sides, anti-capitalist Kyoto accords pushed by Al Gore.

Apparently, President Bush has been pushed into submission by Gore at long last, as he agreed in principle to follow a new set of climate standards, not that different from the Kyoto Accords, following the most recent summit of the G-8 leaders.

According to BBC News.com, “No mandatory target was set for the cuts, but [German PM] Mrs Merkel’s preference for a 50% emissions cut by the year 2050 was included in the agreed statement.”

Frankly, the world would have been better off if the group had spent the entire meeting playing Ping Golf.

Global warming generating plenty of "hot air"

Committed anti-capitalist lefties are worked up in such a lather over global warming, they’re starting to sound even wackier than the fuhrer of the environmentalist movement, Al Gore. If they keep ratcheting up the increasingly-unfounded claims, it could become a challenge to determine this summer which will be the bigger challenge: to buy World Series tickets or to buy tickets to the end of the world.

Geoffrey Lean, environmental editor of Britain’s lefty rag, The Independent, claims global warming has suddenly accelerated to “three times faster than the worst predictions.” As a Chicken Little campaign speech, it makes for fascinating reading from a panicked mind. But it’s not science.

The real whopper here is that Lean makes claims of such new “evidence” based on studies that have been conducted, allegedly, for over 30 years now. Get real: 30 years of date don’t change the information they record with the political winds and whims of politicians and other wackos. Of course, how such data is interpreted certainly does.

It’s all very subjective, you see. Pure scientific date records what it records. But interpreting it is less detached. If one scientist goes in wanting to prove global warming, they can find what they need to prove it … usually by isolating only the data that supports their hypothesis and ignoring inconvenient contradictions. Same goes for those who wish to disprove it.

What is much more clear is history. The earth, during the stretch of human history on it, has been much colder than it is now; it has also been much warmer than it is now. All long before the industrial revolution, the invention of the steam engine or the birth and public utterances of Al Gore (himself a considerable source of global hot air, if not quite global warming.)

The Earth’s been there, done that, and it’s still here. ‘Nuff said.

Gore training environmental socialist militia

The former Vice President, Al Gore (D-Tenn.), an Oscar winner for his socialist environmental hype film, is training a private environmental militia, according to recent online reports. A group of 50 of an eventual 1,000 foaming-at-the-mouth volunteers are currently in training at Gore’s Tennessee farm and will soon be unleashed on America.

Their mission? To keep cramming the environmental lies contained in his film, An Inconvenient Truth, down America’s throat by having these volunteers travel the country, doing Gore’s PowerPoint presentation in his absence.

The Gore propaganda is predicted to spread faster without his personal involvement, yet it’s not like Gore’s information is as tested, tried and true as an education film on prescription drug addiction.

In fact, a growing number of scientists, including many of those listed on the alleged group of “2,500 of the world’s top scientists” the Gore spoke so glowingly of, are producing an increasing amount of contrary evidence with each passing weak.

The central theme to Gore’s socialist propaganda is that human-produced CO2 is destroying the environment by creating an effect called “global warming,” despite the fact that as recently as 1975, the same extremists were promoting the theory of “global cooling.”

Yet what Gore never acknowledges in his “Convenient Lie” propaganda is that human activity accounts for less than one tenth of one percent of all atmospheric CO2. The biggest source? The world’s oceans, via natural evaporation.

I could drone on endlessly about the lies and deceptions in Gore’s propaganda, but it’s easier and more believable if you research it yourselves: Check out the excellent BBC documentary, The Great Global Warming Swindle. That’ll set you straight!

Cool it, Al!

If one believed everything Al Gore had to say about climate change, there’d be no need to be interested in Orlando condos, since he says Chicago will be about as warm in a decade or so, anyway, while Florida will be largely underwater. Don’t believe the hype? Hey, not even the very liberal New York Times can swallow everything Al Gore’s selling these days!

In an article by William J. Broad, several middle-of-the-road scientists are stepping forward to give Al Gore a clear message on global warming: chill out, dude!

Here are some of the more salient quotes:

* Don J. Easterbrook, an emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University: “I don’t want to pick on Al Gore, but there are a lot of inaccuracies in the statements we are seeing, and we have to temper that with real data.”

* Kevin Vranes, a climatologist at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado: “[Gore is] overselling our certainty about knowing the future.”

* Bjorn Lomborg, a statistician and political scientist in Denmark: “Climate change is a real and serious problem … The cacophony of screaming does not help.”

* Benny J. Peiser, a social anthropologist in Britain who runs the Cambridge-Conference Network, or CCNet, an Internet newsletter on climate change and natural disasters: “Hardly a week goes by without a new research paper that questions part or even some basics of climate change theory.”

* Robert M. Carter, a marine geologist at James Cook University in Australia: “Nowhere does Mr. Gore tell his audience that all of the phenomena that he describes fall within the natural range of environmental change on our planet, nor does he present any evidence that climate during the 20th century departed discernibly from its historical pattern of constant change.”

* Dr. Easterbrook again: “I’ve never been paid a nickel by an oil company, and I’m not a Republican.”

* From the Broad article: “He hotly disputed Mr. Gore’s claim that “our civilization has never experienced any environmental shift remotely similar to this” threatened change. Nonsense, Dr. Easterbrook told the crowded session. He flashed a slide that showed temperature trends for the past 15,000 years. It highlighted 10 large swings, including the medieval warm period. These shifts, he said, were up to “20 times greater than the warming in the past century.”

* Paul Reiter, an active skeptic of global warming’s effects and director of the insects and infectious diseases unit of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, on Gore’s claim that warming spreads malaria: “For 12 years, my colleagues and I have protested against the unsubstantiated claims. We have done the studies and challenged the alarmists, but they continue to ignore the facts.”

But even all this won’t be enough to calm down “eager-for-disaster” liberals, who love to use environmental panic to advance their political agenda. Even if it means sacrificing science at the alter of Al Gore.

Blizzard focuses MPR to cancel Global Warming event

How sweet it is.

Yesterday, on Thursday, March 1, Minnesota Public Radio had a “sold out” public insight forum scheduled that was to focus on the “hot-air” topic of global warming. Except it had to be canceled.

The reason? Wait for it… A huge blizzard!

Of course, global warming revisionists will point to the science fiction movie THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW like it’s a science textbook and claim that such cold snaps are part of global warming, but it’s all part of a desperate attempt to make their failed theory line up with the facts increasingly as time goes on.

The latest proof against the prevailing global warming winds comes not from La Nina, but from Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia. Abdussamatov has been studying the climate on Mars and has noted that there is a similar climate change on the red planet that lines up with what some scientists claim is happening on Earth.

Of course, Abdussamatov may agree that there’s a warming trend, but his data suggests that it is sunspot and other solar activity that are behind the trend, not human activity on Earth. That means even if we all switch over from gas-guzzling SUVs to horse-drawn buggies like Al Gore suggests, it wouldn’t make one iota of difference!

Don’t tell Al Gore. We all know how much his little theory means to him, especially now that he’s won a couple Academy Awards for this little PowerPoint show. We wouldn’t want him to get all depressed and start using diet pills, now, would we?
