Just another concerned Global Warmer's home!

Nice eh? Just pull your Boeing 707 right up to the home jet won't even get wet when it rains in beautiful Florida as you go from the jet to the small home!

John Travolta is just the latest monster hypocrite celeb to join the concerned do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do crowd. I have to give Travolta credit though, he isn't over the top about telling all of us to do something radically different...he suggests we may not be able to change things and that inhabiting other planets or building protective domes is the way to go! If I had 5 jets I wouldn't be suggesting we all use less fuel either!

Just your average Democrat!

Did you notice the guy/thing standing in the background when you saw video, or pics, like the one here of Valerie (I'm not sure if I was covert) Plame testifying, for no real purpose, in front of a Congressional committee?

That is apparently just an average Democrat! And as it turns out, what is probably your average Code Pink devotee! Not sure if it male or female are you? Well it's male, but he wishes he was a she...he's a professional protester living on Social Security disability...mental disability no doubt! This Adam's apple touting Code Pinker is getting some fame, but probably not the kind of fame you Democrats (who are less than a degree of separation away from this freak) want....pathetic how the reporter on this story calls him "she"....Puulease!

And just to prove that Adam's apples, 5 o'clock shadows, mental disabilities and smoking good looks are standard for Code Pink, check out this member!

Hatred on the left, fringe or the norm?

It seems a week doesn't go by where left leaning vitriol and hatred displays itself. Those on the left will claim this to not be representative of the left, but instead call it fringe behavior. I don't think so.

First, the image here is from the anti-war, anti-American protest in Oregon a few days ago where an American soldier was burned in effigy. Of course they didn't have Sean Penn's face on it, that was added by who humorously notes one can support something while simultaneously burning it in effigy. So I support Sean Penn's right to be a childish hateful American hater while at the same time displaying this image!

Sean gets this honor for his speech this weekend in Oakland where his hatred was unabashed and supported by a Congresswomen who was present, along with an enthusiastic crowd. With numerous celebrities and elected US Government officials regularly participating in very caustic hatred for American operations and our Commander & Chief my claim that this is not fringe behavior on the left is more supported than man caused global warming.

If you don't think so, present influential people on the right, celebrities on the right, gatherings of hundreds on the right where similar hate is directed at the left...just show me a few as compared to the dozen, or so, in the links I provide for my case on the left!

This is the Democrats

Today's Wall Street Journal had a piece on the pathetic politicking on Iraq by the Democrats. As my previous post points out, the Democrats are far from united and so you have to give Pelosi credit, albeit the pure political porcine bribery form of credit, for even pulling off a simple majority on her useless vote. The editors at the WSJ were more kind with the headline of 'A Triumph for Pelosi' The Democrats send their message on Iraq, but the kindness ended there. The opening paragraphs nailed beautifully:

Saturday, March 24, 2007 12:01 a.m. EDT

That's how the Associated Press described yesterday's vote by the House to demand a U.S. retreat from Iraq, and in the perverse calculus of Capitol Hill we suppose it was. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has demonstrated she can pile on enough pork to bribe enough Democrats to cobble together a bare, partisan majority to "send a message" that has no chance of becoming law. Congratulations.

"Today is an historic day," Ms. Pelosi said on the House floor. "The new Congress will vote to end the war in Iraq." But of course the bill does nothing of the sort. If she truly wanted to end the war, the Speaker and her fellow Democrats could simply have used their power of the purse to refuse to fund it. But that would have meant taking some responsibility for what happens in Iraq, which is the last thing Democrats want to do. So they have passed a bill that funds the war while claiming it ends the war.

The bill's "benchmarks" and deadlines certainly have nothing to do with achieving victory in Iraq, or assisting General David Petraeus's campaign to secure Baghdad. They are all about the war inside the Democratic Caucus. On the one hand, they appease the antiwar left by pretending to declare the war illegal if certain goals aren't met by Iraqis or U.S. forces. But on the other, they allow "moderates" from swing districts to claim they are nonetheless "supporting the troops." Acts of Congress don't get much more cynical than that.

Keystone Democrats

The image above of the breaking news teasers on says it all! From Pelosi and Co's inability to articulate their slow bleed timetable for Iraq, or the appointments to various committee's of dear in the headlight old farts that make President Bush's public speaking skills seem scholarly, the Democrats are running around like bumbling Keystone cops.

Evil Shyster

I was getting tired of seeing that hideous picture of Gore from my previous post so I was looking for something to post on when I felt a sick feeling. This morning before heading to work I saw teasers on TV for a press conference John Edwards was having. The teaser mentioned Edwards cancelled some campaign work to attend a doctors appointment with his wife. Because he scheduled a press conference the assumption was this was not good news about his wife's fight with cancer. Various TV and blog posts of course assumed if his wife's cancer was back that he would only be calling a press conference to announce putting is campaign on hold, or dropping out of the race altogether.

Then I heard he in fact used this as an opportunity to say "the campaign goes on" reaction was Oh MY GOD!.....First, this guy has less substance on the issues than Obama, but his actual qualifications to be President aside he's an ambulance chasing shyster lawyer who made millions and lives like it...then lectures us on class warfare and the have-nots..what is it with liberals and their hypocrisy?

Anyway, this is pure use your wife's battle with cancer as a vehicle for political gain..presumably from sympathy for the situation, is truly evil...un F'ing believable.

Now, will the MSM skewer this evil shyster for this as they should?

Al Gore believes NASA doesn't exist, and that's beyond dispute!

Ok, follow me on this one. Today Al Gore testified in front of several committees in Congress on his belief that global warming is caused by man. Gore, in his testimony, still claims there is no debate, there's a consensus, it's beyond dispute....and he continued his fear mongering as if that makes his claims more true. Gore uses words and phrases like "crisis", "mans survival is threatened", "dire warnings", "planetary emergency", and so on.

Gore asked for immediately legislation to curb carbon emissions over some period. Of course unless you get China, India and the rest of the world that's plowing into the 21st century to also do something in lock step in wouldn't matter much....oh and nobody who claims we (manly man) are causing global warming has presented any evidence, science or theory that we can actually stop it. But never some carbon credits from the companies that Al Gore owns part of! And never mind Al uses 15-20 times as much energy in his home than you...he's not going to change that...gee, he really believes in this emergency of global warming doesn't he!

You ever notice how someone will tell you over and over again something they claim is obvious, evident and clearly correct when it's not? You can be sure when someone likes to say the debate is over, it's surely not. If the debate was over, if it was "beyond dispute"...well, it would be pretty obvious and we wouldn't be debating it with you. Those who think there are no scientists of note that question man made global warming aren't looking very hard, just look at my GW related blog posts....and they like to point out that because Michael Crichton is challenging man made global warming that his celebrity author status gives him no credibility. Well you read his bio and tell me who is more a scientist, Gore or Crichton?

But while Gore and his supporters claim there is no debate and that there's a consensus... I find almost daily stories of scientists, groups of scientists and studies from respected scientific organizations that present evidence, findings and theories that if nothing else PROVE there is a debate, that it is NOT beyond dispute...well, unless for example, Gore is claiming NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory doesn't exist!

The Great Global Warming Swindle

See update below!
The BBC produced a documentary so titled. I don't think anybody would make the claim that the BBC is a tool of big oil or of conservatives, yet this movie does a great job debunking the claims and misrepresentation of facts made in Gore's award winning documentary...and all without dramatics and emotional pleas, but instead with SCIENCE.

CO2 levels, natural weather patterns, global climate cycles, ice cores, sun spots, solar activity, sea levels, storms, polar ice caps, permafrost, dissenting opinions being censored, oil & gas behind dissension, the money trail, you name it and the BBC documentary covers it. An amazing array of accomplished scientists participate and present science not presented in Gore's movie.

Also it's important to understand that the idea of a Global Warming crisis is about money and a political agenda and not about conservation and environmentalism. Climate science and those who practice climatology are made relevant and get funding if there is a looming crisis. In the end, if you're unwilling to listen to all evidence, all the theories, that are central tenets of Global Warming and man's role...well then you're intellectually dishonest, close minded and intolerant.

Many schools, churches and other venues offered free showings of Gore's movie....will those same venues now offer the BBC documentary as a counterpoint? Will it make its way into theaters or onto mainstream television channels? I think we all know the answer!

IF YOU BELIEVE the points made n Gore's movie, you must view the BBC piece so that your personal view can have integrity!

BBC Channel 4's official page for The Great Global Warming Swindle documentary is a great resource of information.

Apparently links to the full BBC movie are being taken down by those who don't like its content (intolerance) here are several.

Update: From today's Wall Street Journal opinion blog Taranto had a reader point out an interview Gore gave last year where he basically makes it clear that he's ok exaggerating, if not lying, for the greater good when it comes to global warming...problem is that this is all about science and this completely goes against the foundation of good science.
'An Over-Representation of Factual Presentations'After our item yesterday on scientists critical of Al Gore's "global warming" alarmism, a reader called our attention to an interview with Gore that appeared last May in a publication called Grist:

Q: There's a lot of debate right now over the best way to communicate about global warming and get people motivated. Do you scare people or give them hope? What's the right mix?

Gore: I think the answer to that depends on where your audience's head is. In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.

Global Warming causes COLD

Two women who wanted to bring attention to Global Warming with a North Pole expedition had it cut short due to extreme cold (minus 100 at times) and frost bite! First the article calls where they were using sleds to travel the "Arctic Ocean"...uh, I think if a slide slides across it, it's an ice shelf, an ice cap, or some other label that denotes the cold stuff called ICE! But more importantly, the organizer of the expedition wants you to know this isn't ironic as the extreme cold is just another GW side effect:

"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."

NYTimes Global Warming slap, not hit, piece

Yesterday on Drudge a teaser ran all day saying the NYTimes was doing a hit piece on Gore and his Global Warming alarm-ism. Well, the piece is in today's NYTimes and it's hardly what I would call a hit piece. It tempers each example, and person, who take issue with any salient aspect of Gore's movie, or the main concept of man's role, with the reappearing message that he largely got it right.

The piece does give mention, but not with the weight it deserves, to almost daily public pronouncements from scientists who cry foul. Consensus and the notion that there is no longer a debate are complete folly and will, I believe, irreparably damage the credibility of those who promote man's role in GW as indisputable fact and not a theory.

While the piece sites issues with the movies claims of increased deadly hurricanes and a catastrophic ocean level rise, the most damaging albeit underplayed point is made by nearly all who challenge man's role....and this point hasn't been countered in any substantial way to date. The evidence for a natural warming cycle that has repeated itself over the planets history is in abundance and most of it with no green house gases producing humans in existence.

“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,” Robert M. Carter, a marine geologist at James Cook University in Australia, said in a September blog. “Nor does he present any evidence that climate during the 20th century departed discernibly from its historical pattern of constant change.”

In October, Dr. Easterbrook made similar points at the geological society meeting in Philadelphia. 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.”

Getting personal, he mocked Mr. Gore’s assertion that scientists agreed on global warming except those industry had corrupted. “I’ve never been paid a nickel by an oil company,” Dr. Easterbrook told the group. “And I’m not a Republican.”

Gore officially a nut

Liberals have complained ever since Fox News and conservative syndicated talk radio hosts started getting ratings that were significant. Somehow this was unfair or bad. Whether you believe Fox is more balanced than biased, doesn't clearly doesn't present stories with the same spin as the MSM..and since the MSM far and away has more viewers than Fox it's not even an example of balance....the airwaves still get far more liberal content than conservative.

So why then do they complain? Well, because they're intolerant and when the opposite view actually makes sense it DRIVES THEM INSANE. You have to love how liberals want to stifle debate and the opposing view and don't see their intolerance in doing so.

Today when I saw a quote from Al Gore with regard to the media and how reporting on global warming, and man's role in it, I had to laugh. It's hard to have missed that in the last several months the number of stories of scientists, academics and researchers who have said wait a minute, there is no consensus, data is being interpreted incorrectly, or data is being ignored so as to better fit a position, and most of all...there is no certainty that man causes this warming, it's merely a theory....and one easily challenged.

Gore obviously isn't happy that people challenge his baby, his mantra of the last several years claiming dire consequences, a global emergency, the sky is falling! Of course the challenges are very logical, non-emotional, reasoned and compelling...which makes people talking in absolutes on the other side (Gore's side) look like overacting simpletons.

So instead of Gore embracing the debate, instead of saying we should weigh all facts and evidence and be logical about things he does what ever liberal does when cornered by reality...he becomes illogical and emotional. Read Gore's comments for yourself...the use of the word "consensus" is a joke...just like how there was a "consensus" in the 70's about the coming new Ice Age! A consensus doesn't make something true, or even likely true as history shows. But how can one take someone for anything other than a nut when he actually calls a balanced view biased, and his desire for everyone to sing the same song right?
They have failed to report that it is the consensus and instead have chosen …balance as bias. Al Gore, 2007

If you're intellectually honest how can you excuse Gore's own "carbon footprint" with his homes and private jet travel. Carbon credits are a're either personally responsible for creating more pollution than the average person or not. If you pollute 20 times more than me you don't get a pass because you planted trees or supposedly offset your filth some other way.
Update: Taranto of the WSJ blogged on Gore's hypocrisy and disingenuous motives yesterday...also pointing out that the MSM bias in not skewering Gore as they would if he was a conservative.
