ClimateGate Round-Up by The Daily Bayonet

Here’s a bonus round-up of all things Hadley CRU hack/leak. The Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round Up will still appear here on Thursday, fear not. The site at the center of the storm is Climate Audit, Steve McIntyre’s web lair. If you have trouble getting it to load (because lots of people just discovered that the science isn’t settled), try the mirror site. Already there are calls for a public enquiry in the UK, and you can bet that Michael Mann’s involvement will interest Senator Inhofe. It’s about time someone took Mann to task, that Miami Vice remake was terrible.

The Leak/Hack

Gore Lied has a good chronology of how it all started, Genesis of a Hack/Leak The Air Vent, where the files first appeared, finds Collusion, Corruption, Manipulation and Obstruction, and that’s just for starters. The Examiner follows the idea that the CRU data and email release was not a hack, but a leak. Toldya. Dr. Tim Ball (more of him below) sees the leak as the death blow to climate science. Heh. One climate scientist thinks the leak is appalling. Not because what was said between the CRU wiseguys is wrong, but because the emails were cherry-picked. Maybe Briffa leaked them? Powerline takes a look at the less than purist scientific method of the motley CRU. In climate science, the results are fitted to the agenda. What the leak/hack has done is simple but devastating, it has destroyed the IPCC’s credibility. As polls around the world show the public suffering from green fatigue, you can guarantee that some politicians will use the scandal to delay and eventually back away from what will soon be a toxic mess.

The Inconvenient Emails/Data

It didn’t take long for the enterprising blogger at An Elegant Chaos to compile the data into a searchable form. Go there and see what you can find, there’s still lots to go through. Andrew Bolt, an inconvenient Aussie, details some of the more egregious emails and finds so-called leading scientific minds colluding to ruin the careers of those that disagree:

I will be emailing the journal to tell them I’m having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor… It results from this journal having a number of editors. The responsible one for this is a well-known skeptic in NZ. He has let a few papers through by Michaels and Gray in the past. I’ve had words with Hans von Storch about this, but got nowhere. Another thing to discuss in Nice !

That pesky hockey stick, and its author, Michael Mann, are at the center of the CRU hack/leak. manns-stick
Bishop Hill has a great summary of some of the emails, revealing a thread of censorship and bunker mentality protectionism among the world’s leading climate ’scientists’. Watergate led to shredding parties, but for the motley CRU pressing ‘DEL’ to conceal the ugly truth behind their corrupt science was easier. Why the leak matters, from a Brit devil. Alan Caruba has a lot to say about what the leaked data tells us about the scientists and the science behind the great global warming hoax. The scientists charlatans revealed by the Hadley CRU leak prefer to focus on the legality of the data’s release, but in the end, it might be themselves on the wrong side of the law. Misleading governments, denying fair FOIA requests and deleting data are all serious no-no’s and the actions have consequences. Even believers are having a hard time swallowing the science now the deception is revealed. While early analysis and headlines have been based on the emails leaked, it may be that more damaging evidence lies in the code that was leaked. Slimate scaremongers have a long record of discounting skeptical research from any scientist that received so much as a free mug with a tank of gas. How inconvenient then that we can see exactly how much money the motley CRU received from Big Green.

The Hadley CRU Hack/Leak in the Media

Of all the cable news folks, guess who was the only channel running with the story? Hint: It’s not owned by GE. Andrew revkin, the NYT’s paid global warming shill was inconveniently outed in the leak as being an insider, getting exclusive access from Mann, Jones etc. Although they called him ‘unpredictable Andy’, he did his best to cover for his friends. More Andrew Bolt on the CRU emails in the media. Dr. Tim Ball, all around smart dude and skeptic, has a few things to say about the ‘battery of machine guns’ revelations from the Hadley hack:
.. The UK’s Daily Mail was one of the first mainstream papers to pick up the story, and you can be certain that some lefties swooned when they read ‘the global warming con’ headline. The Telegraph’s tame skeptic James Delingpole reviews the first few days of coverage (or non-coverage) in the media. The WSJ covers the leak, but not much of the content. Science, what science? The LA Times, at the bleeding edge of the legacy media’s headlong rush to irrelevance, moves the goalposts to avoid dealing with the CRU fallout. Australian papers run with the story. Or do they? The Mail notes how the scientists at the CRU continually blocked skeptics FOIA requests and has a nice little profile of Phil Jones:

Jonesclick to enlarge

American Thinker has excellent analysis of the ‘fraud’ committed in the name of selling junkscience. The Telegraph headlines with ‘Climate scientists accused of ‘manipulating global warming data’. Ouch.

Hippies React

Scaremonger George Marshall has a conniption in The Guardian about the leaks and how the East Anglia University blew the PR spin of the CRU leak/hack. Also, whilst calling skeptics conspiracy nuts, he goes on to say:

I suspect it goes further than that. The storyline is too clever, the timing on the brink of Copenhagen and the US climate bill too convenient. I wait with interest to find out how these emails were obtained.

You couldn’t make it up.

it's been a rough weekend for hippiesit’s been a rough weekend for hippies

DeSmogBlog focuses on the ‘hack’ and ignores the inconvenient truths revealed about climate ’scientist’s’ thuggery, collusion and data manipulation. I give it a week before we find out that it was more leak than hack, which means that the desmoggers will have to come up with a whole new spin cycle. Heh. Dyed-in-the-wool hippie FriedGreen goes all street and wants to hit back, hard. So much for peace and love, brother. Joltin Joe reacted badly, then decided to remind his followers that Gaia is still doomed. Poor Joe still thinks that ’science’ is credible and that the world will forget about the Hadley CRU. They won’t, and that turns his universe upside down and makes him the denier. RealClimate laughs in the face of disaster, bragging that there is no proof of a conspiracy:

There is no evidence of any worldwide conspiracy, no mention of George Soros nefariously funding climate research, no grand plan to ‘get rid of the MWP’, no admission that global warming is a hoax, no evidence of the falsifying of data, and no ‘marching orders’ from our socialist/communist/vegetarian overlords

then they too go on to wonder about… a conspiracy:

The timing of this particular episode is probably not coincidental.

CRU Hack/Leak Hottie

I can’t abandon round up tradition, so here is a hottie. Astute readers will know that she once played a hacker in, err, Hackers. Skeptics, give a warm Monday welcome to Mrs. Pitt, Angelie Jolie.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Nov. 19th 2009

This week the round-up finds political hackery, partisan shenanigans and something called climate justice. Some Germans wonder how to get America’s attention (which might make Poland nervous) and Hopenchangen in Copenhagen is even more doomed than the planet. All this and a hottie besides in this week’s linkapalooza.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore continued his carbon-spewing Chicken Soup for Hippies book tour this week, but something went terribly wrong. In Boca Raton, FL and Portland, OR, the propheteer was booed and heckled. Shocking enough, but it was covered in the local press. And you thought America’s media put the ‘press’ in ’suppress’. Times do change and Al’s iron grip on the ‘climate crisis’ agenda is slipping. Tom Nelson has been taking a closer look at Our Choice, Al’s newest screed and discovers that the Goreacle not only refuses to acknowledge the large yellow ball in the sky, but he also cannot help using scary faked pictures. It’s a habit of his, you know. Newsweek ran a puff piece on Gore, and they got letters. Lots of letters, of which 74% were critical of Al. But Newsweek didn’t print any of those flat-earther, keep Al poor activist screeds. Newsweek will change it’s title to Leftweak 2010.

where's William Tell when you need him?where’s William Tell when you need him?

Will Al stop avoiding debate if there is enough green in it for him? And by green, I mean money. But you knew that. But it wasn’t supposed to be like this when Al Repowered America. Set your VCR’s, Al’s on 30 Rock tonight (Thursday). Remember, ‘Green Week’ on NBC is just GE’s way of lobbying for government welfare. Al is a partisan hack and to prove it he sees constructive debate where even the New York Times sees political shenanigans:

Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, the committee’s chairwoman and co-sponsor of the bill, employed a rarely used exception to customary committee rules to muscle the 959-page measure through her panel. She conducted three days of hearings last week on the bill, known as S. 1733, but there was no debate on the complex measure, nor any chance for panel members to offer amendments. Mrs. Boxer said that the E.P.A. had already conducted a preliminary analysis of the bill and that further study would be costly and duplicative. She said it was necessary to bypass the committee’s rule that required Republican participation because of Republican intransigence and the urgency of the issue.

Gorebots in Oregon became worried that Tea Party protestors might outnumber them. Happy Days. More good coverage of the anti-Gore movement at MoveOnDotGore. Canada’s own hippie evil genius, David Suzuki, is given a chance to host a show on the CBC, or Can-Jazeera as we Canucks like to call the government’s $1billion leftard employment program.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

Global warming killed spaghetti. Add it to the list. Global warming alarmists have turned environmentalism into a neoreligion, even Jon Stewart said so. How fitting then that church bells ring out for Gaia. The Guardian wonders how only 7% of Americans can block the march of socialism global warming action. What they really mean is that democracy is a bitch for giving inconvenient red states a fair shake. A condescending patronage Brit suggests that grubby Aussies should get with the rest of the gullible nations and stop asking awkward questions already. The CDC, spreading climate alarmism. You’d think maybe frightening folks about H1N1 might be enough for one agency, but you’d be wrong. Eco-terrorist Paul Watson has a new boat to attack whalers from. Maybe Canada can confiscate that one, too. it's too cool for an ecoloon Jolly Prince Chuckles has departed Canada (finally) and is off to some other part of the world that likes to be visited by inbred Royals with dodgy taste in wives. Before he left Canada, he did remember to tell us that the world only has 92 months before it explodes. Or something.Click on over to The Daily Bayonet to read the rest!

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Nov. 12th 2009

Al Gore wants to send President Obama to Copenhagen for Hopenchangen, Global Warming speaks English and supports the war on terror, and Aussie PM Kevin Rudd doubles down on stupid. Again. Jump in to the weekly round-up, admire the hottie and for bonus fun play the spot the not-a-climatologist.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

The global warming Goreacle was all over the place promoting his new book, carbon footprint be damned:

Right now I am in San Francisco. On Wednesday, I’ll be in Phoenix speaking at Greenbuild Conference and later this week, I am looking forward to appearing at the Miami Book Fair. I hope to see some of you at these events.

President Narcissist Obama likes to surround himself with Marxists, Al likes to quote Marxists. What could possibly go wrong? Costco hosted Al on the front cover of their member mag, but is the pudgy green giant a good fit for the retail giant? The Gore Lied AIT Index is updated, and it’s still inconvenient for warmists everywhere. Glenn Beck and PETA agree and double-team Al Gore. Enjoy: .. Al Gore, ex-VP, activist and author (but not a climatologist) talks to the UK’s leftist Guardian and repeats his suggestion that civil disobedience has a role to play in promoting his global warming personal enrichment program climate crisis. Talking of profiting prophets, should he? Al blogged that he thought it would be a good idea for the President to go to the Copenhagen Hopenchangen Global Warming Hoe-Down. As I recall, Obama’s last trip to Copenhagen didn’t work out so well. Al’s all steamed up about all the recent talk about global cooling, which is harshing his global warming mellow. He pulls out the big guns to debunk cooling, citing the Associated Press and 4 (count ‘em!) statisticians. Money quote:

“”If you look at the data and sort of cherry-pick a micro-trend within a bigger trend, that technique is particularly suspect,” said John Grego, a professor of statistics at the University of South Carolina””.

Al’s science buddies don’t think cherry-picking data is such a bad idea, so why should he mind now? In Canada, totalitarian hippie and fruit-fly geneticist (but not a climatologist) David ‘jail ‘em‘ Suzuki is going to feature in a documentary about his life. For Suzuki fans who cannot wait for the cinematic experience, The Daily Bayonet recommends spending three hours watching your grass grow over the weekend, it’ll be a good substitute. And greener too. Meanwhile, fellow BC residents still aren’t buying what Suzuki’s selling.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

Good news, Darwinism for activists is alive and well. They’re into Day 6, anyone want to start a pool on when they cave? If you’re still uncertain if global warming is real or not, here’s 10 previous mega-scares that turned out to be nothing at all. Aussie PM Kevin Rudd thinks I’m dangerous. Well, OK, he thinks all skeptics are dangerous, I can’t take all the credit. Meanwhile, while Kev rails against the least gullible members of society, his government has failed to keep its promise to use clean energy. Awkward. To complete Rudd’s pratfall, the fabulously named Jo Nova takes Kevin to the woodshed for his attack on skeptics.CLICK HERE to read the rest over at The Daily Bayonet!

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Sept. 4th 2009

Carny futures are down, the European Endarkenment has begun and the EPA introduced the world to the concept of extinction neutrality. If you have no idea what any of this means, then you need the weekly round-up. Coincidentally, here it is:

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore is a social networking junkie. Al has added yet another name to those he follows on Twitter, making the total a staggering… 8. If you’d like Al to follow you, simply devise a way to fill his pockets with millions of dollars or become President of the United States. The Goreacle eased off on his blogging pace this week after reports that some acolytes found the flurry of posts almost too much to take. I think it was the post about Tipper’s photography that pushed folks over the edge, and no, I’m still not linking it. This week Al blogged only to claim that his fake grassroots movement is bigger than your fake grassroots movement. He also slips in a little snark about the Bonnor letter, but before he gets too sanctimonious, let’s not forget how his friends at the WWF use terrorist attacks for fund raising. Add ‘carbon baron’ to Al’s list of titles. Nobel Prize winner, Oscar winner, Emmy winner, Grammy winner and Big Weiner, he’s won ‘em all.

Al and Oscar, together againAl and Oscar

Al’s investment firm, Generation Investment Management took a 12% share in Ireland’s Kingspan. They’re working on a new high-efficiency insulation, which might be handy for Al if people start asking inconvenient questions about his personal wealth. Talking of inconvenience, Al has been challenged to a $20,000 bet:

J. Scott Armstrong, a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, has bet Gore $20,000 that he will be able to make more accurate forecasts of annual mean temperatures than those that can be produced by the climate models Gore and his followers base their predictions on.

Nice try, J. Scott, but I wouldn’t run and spend that $20k on a new Hummer just yet. Al’s famously shy when it comes to debates. It’s over, you see, the debate is over. Al said so, I heard him. Sheryl Crow, musician, artist and TP miser is set to join MC Albert G for something called the Greenbuild Convention. Whatever it is, you know it’s important when you’ve got an intellect like Crow supporting it. Canadian David Suzuki is worried about Salmon. Sockeye salmon, to be precise. Of course, whatever is wrong with the fish is the fault of global warming. Here he is telling the world that global warming is messing with Salmon right before he admits he doesn’t really know why the fish are in trouble:

their survival is threatened by warming oceans and rivers due to climate change, and they are vulnerable to sea lice and diseases from open-net salmon farms. While we need to invest more funding in science to understand the exact details behind saving our disappearing salmon, we can and must take precautionary actions to curtail activities that we know harm salmon.

Meanwhile, the real reason that salmon are missing is a little easier to explain:

the food chain, respect itthe food chain, respect it

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

People that are deathly afraid of the weather don’t want you to have any power. Not the political kind but the stuff you power your home or car with. To that end, deranged hippies are promising that they’ll do whatever they can to block oilsands development in South Dakota. So, next time you’re complaining about the price of gas, maybe blame hippies instead of the oil firms. (Note to any Big Oil folks reading this, where’s the money the hippies think you’re giving me?)CLICK HERE to read the rest and check out this weeks Global Hottie!

The Powerless Green Future

By The Daily Bayonet

The UK could be rationing electricity within 8 years because demand for power is forecast to outstrip supply. The British government committed the nation to its Low Carbon Transition Plan in July, an idea that hopes wind and solar can produce enough electricity to power the entire country. Renewable energy is a green dream that will turn into a nightmare for families facing sudden power cuts or scheduled brown-outs. In the 21st century, the idea that a nation cannot provide enough power for its people and industries should be unthinkable. There is no coal shortage, no oil shortage and no Uranium shortage. The only shortage is plants that convert these fuels into power. But why? Greens have played a key role in dePowering the UK, Greenpeace scofflaws at Kingsnorth illustrate the radical scaremongering that made the idea of building new generating capacity a political nightmare. Eco-radicals are proud of their drive to deprive people of affordable energy, witness the Sierra Club in the USA and how they brag about the 100 power stations they ‘prevented‘. The perfect storm of a spineless political class and a somnolent public faced with aggressive green lobby groups has brought the UK to a point where it is a country without an energy future. No one listens to voices of reason, preferring to pretend that renewable energy can fill the gap and ignoring that ‘green’ alternatives require the industrialization of the open countryside:

… the land area occupied by wind farms would be nearly 10 percent of the country, or roughly the size of Wales. The area occupied by desert solar power stations — in the case of Britain, they would have to be connected by long-distance power lines — would be five times the size of London. The 50 nuclear power stations required would occupy a more modest 50 square kilometers.

What will happen in 8 years when the lights start to go out across Britain? Here’s two predictions that will drive greens nuts, because the unintended consequences of their blinkered knee-jerk activism will result in bad outcomes for the environment:

  • Unlike the 1970’s, small generators are available and affordable. Families and small businesses that can afford them will buy their own rather than lose a freezer full of meat or their Internet connection. Small generators run on gas and are pretty inefficient, inconveniently.
  • The government of the day will panic and will build new generation capacity as cheaply and quickly as it can, which means new coal powered plants, the very thing that Greenpeace and other eco-naifs wished to avoid. (A potential problem for green radicals is that any attempts to block urgent new builds will likely be frowned upon by a public that want their lights on, cutting off their essential cover of public support.)

British people are waking up to a major problem that threatens to negatively impact their everyday lives. Politicians will pay a heavy price for their part in the fiasco, the only question is whether there will be a backlash against the idiot greens that pushed the country to the brink and perhaps over it. Whatever happens, the situation in Britain is a canary in the coal mine for other countries blindly following the green path. If you live in the USA, Canada, Australia or any other country where carbon has been demonized by eco-hysterics, this could happen to you. Get involved and stop the rot, before your lights go out.Source

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Aug. 28th 2009

In this week’s round-up, you will discover the dark secrets behind some of the most influential green groups, why polar bears are shrinking and how the world can be saved with only the judicious use of English actors. Also, this is the first weekly round-up where I use the word skulduggery in a sentence. How about that and a bag of chips too? Become one with your beverage and read on, friend, read on…

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al must be back from vacation, or is blogging from the road, because he blessed his acolytes with numerous posts this week. I’m skipping the post about Tipper’s photography, let’s just say that if you want to see old pictures of Bill Clinton from his pants-on days, knock yourself out, otherwise, meh. Back to the Goreacle’s blog, he’s miffed that a group called Energy Citizens has the gall to oppose Al’s personal enrichment plan cap and trade legislation. Al goes on to show his unique understanding of astroturf by encouraging his Gore-bot minions to sign up for what sounds a lot like a spam-marketing voicemail blast to Senators. I encourage US readers to make a call to oppose Waxman-Malarkey, after all it’s Al’s rePower America picking up the tab for your call. He can afford it, knock yourself out. Talking of the repower folks, they have a new ad out, and it features a whiney guy in a green shirt. Really.

is that astroturf or grass, it's hard to seeis that astroturf or grass, it’s hard to see

The oddest post from Al is this one about energy-efficiency in a war zone. I’m not making this up. Unfortunately, Al makes reference to the Nellis Air Force Base solar power plant, which has a hidden but very inconvenient truth all it’s own:

… the 72,000 solar panels cost $100 million and saves the Air Force $1.2 million annually. So it’ll pay for itself in about 83 years. What a shame the useful life of a solar panel is only 20 years.

Climate Chains is a new documentary that would like to join Not Evil Just Wrong as the Anti-Inconvenient Truth. Check out the trailer at Tom’s joint. Al Gore won an Oscar, which makes him a natural for pimping his buddies movies. Al threw a party to host a screening of the latest Tarantino splatterfest, Inglourious Basterds. Perhaps Al thought the Nazis in the movie were skeptics? In the wake of some arrests for carbon trading fraud, one blogger wonders if Al’s next.

David Suzuki.  His office is in a forest you know.Suzuki’s office is in a forest, allegedly

David Suzuki, Canada’s diminutive but incredibly irritating self-proclaimed eco-conscience wants to undo economics. Yeah, it doesn’t work apparently. All that wealth? Not good for Gaia:

…the economic system we’ve created is fundamentally flawed because it is disconnected from the biosphere in which we live. We cannot afford to ignore these flaws any longer.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

Oh noes, alarmists on a boat, in the arctic. Stuck in the ice. Maybe the coastguard needs a Darwinism policy to cut costs? Greenpeace leader Gerd Leipold said that “the lifestyle of the rich in the world is not a sustainable model.“ And by rich, he means you, your family and friends, your neighbor and your neighbor’s neighbors. Everyone in the western world, in fact.Click here to read the rest and check out this weeks Global hottie!

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Aug. 21st 2009

This week British kids wear eco-uniforms, polar bears refuse to drown and greens celebrate their efforts to make our lights go out. It’s high summer so crank up the air conditioner and open a window to fight global warming as you dive into the fascinating depths of the weekly round-up.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

It’s summertime, so Al has been pretty quiet in the past week, but he did find some time to open up a new Repower Tennessee office. Considering the size of his own power bill, it’s likely that the state needs repowering. The Goreacle and his global warming acolytes have been rudely shoved to the back of the news cycle by the current bunfight over health care reform, but Al knows how to grab a headline. He floated the idea of holding his own townhall meetings to promote his ‘climate crisis’. Al supports the push toward a new ‘.eco’ domain, but that effort has turned messy and green groups are fighting each other for the right to sell the names. It’s almost as if this had something to do with profit rather than the more altruistic goal of saving the planet. Surely not?

can anyone explain why it's not green?  anyone?can anyone explain why it’s not green? anyone?

One lefty writer called Leonard Pitts used a quote from Al Gore as a way to illustrate that opponents of health care are using scaremongering tactics to frighten people away from reform. I guess he missed this less convenient quote from Al:

“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are.”

If you’re confused, remember that using scaremongering tactics to promote the global warming hoax is approved, but use of the same to oppose health care reform is verboten. Clear enough? Canuckian Hippie David Suzuki has decided he’s suddenly interested in the state of the Canadian mining industry, but only because some firms are willing to say publicly that they ‘believe’ global warming is affecting them. Three short years ago, miners were the climate enemy, but Suzuki’s such an alarmist whore that he’ll cozy up to anyone that might have a buck for him.

Part Two: AGW Scaremongers

In Europe, manufacturers are worried that science has been labeled a ‘force of evil’ by eco-religion nutjobs, and that has made the transition of research to innovation slower and more expensive. Greens the new Luddites, but with less fun.Click on over to The Daily Bayonet to read the rest and check out this weeks global hottie!

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Aug.14th 2009

In this week’s round-up you can learn about the Green Guilt-o-meter, the mortal enemy of the biosphere and how much fun it’s possible to have have with alliteration and Richard Branson. Last week Magnus at Klimathot called me a Skeptikerpunk. Thanks Magnus, I think. Become beveraged, citizens, for it all starts here…

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Pity the poor Goreacle. His climate crisis is all but forgotten as America erupts over Obamacare, yet still he blogs from his lonely mansion, desperately hoping to mobilize the two or three people that remember Waxman-Malarkey. Another tough break for Al is that a couple of Irish folk have set a release date for their little film ‘Not Evil, Just Wrong’, which promises to be An Inconvenient Truth about An Inconvenient Truth, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Al looms large over AfricaAl looms large over Africa

The Weekly Round-Up is unkind to Al Gore several times a week, and sometimes we (almost) feel bad about it. So let’s take time to celebrate an anniversary with Al. Summer 2009 is the 20th Anniversary of the first time we were warned we only had 10 years to fix global warming. Happy Annniversary, Jim and Al. OK, enough empathy, on with the mocking. Al has a new green initiative. It’s green (of course) and looks like grassroots. But, look a little closer and it’s clear that Al is endorsing some pretty un-American activity. The .eco domain might be all over the Interwebs if Al and some of his friends have their way. I indicated last week was a good idea because then we’d have a place to store the cyber-hippies. Not all greens think the .eco is a good idea, they don’t want to ‘ghetto-ize Green‘. One quick aside to greens – you might want to rethink the label ‘ghetto‘. Together with the free abuse of label ‘denier’ it’s beginning to look like you’ve got a nasty underlying problem. Canuckian fruit-fly expert David Suzuki is a tool. Or something.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Aug. 7th 2009

By The Daily Bayonet

Another week draws to a close, which means another weekly round-up. Discover Greenwich’s dirty secret, Australia’s war on camels, what makes this the best time to be a skeptic and why Americans should pay attention to Spaniards. And don’t miss the bubbly goodness in Part Five. Grab your liquid of choice and dig in to the wonder that is the GWHWRU…

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore, the Tennessee titan of global warming, the savior of the scared and profiteer prophet to the pandering masses, has a problem. Mother Nature isn’t cooperating with the agenda. Apparently the halls of Gore Manor echo with cries of frustration, but enough of hanging chads. Preferring to ignore the cold outside, Al has been spreading the only green that matters around Washington to push the ‘climate crisis’ to his political chums. Al forgot to disclose any of his lobbying efforts when he testified in front of the Waxman-Malarkey panel, but hey, he’s a Democrat and that’s how they roll. These days at least. Many people have noticed that Al likes the limelight but prefers leaving the heavy lifting to others. Al’s reluctance to get physical was demonstrated this week as his old boss trudged to visit the King of the Norks to rescue Al’s Current employees. Now that the whole mess is safely over, Al finally gets around to mentioning the names of his employees. John Kerry, he of the long face, is famous for getting his arse handed to him by George Bush in an election. Just like Al. No wonder then that that the losers stick together. It’s like AV club all over again for Al and JK. Al applauds this nonsense from Kerry:

“…a handshake between Nixon and Chinese premier Zhou Enlai was enough to change the world. Today, the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter and history’s biggest emitter, China and America, must change the world again – and nothing less than a transformation of the energy economy will suffice.”

John and Al go antiquingJohn and Al go antiquing

For the Goreacle, allowing minion ex-bosses and fellow election losers to cover the hard stuff leaves him free to get after the big fish, like campaigning for a .eco domain. While you might expect me to mock this effort, in fact I have to support it. Because .eco would become the Internet equivalent of California – and we’d know where to find all the nuts. Nice and tidy. Conflicts of interest and Al Gore? :

Gore and other members of the Copenhagen Climate Council, including the world’s largest producer of wind turbines, Vestas, present their demands for carbon-trading schemes as altruistic efforts to clean up the planet. In truth, these green-leaning profit-making machines stand to gain significantly if the activities of their less green competitors are hampered by government demands.

Followers of Canada’s David Suzuki, the fruit-fly geneticist turned eco-totalitarian, are taken to the proverbial woodshed by a letter writer from rural Ottawa valley. That’s like Canada’s ‘deliverance’ country, or something.

Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, July 31st 2009

It’s been a couple of weeks since you were rounded-up, so pay attention. The climate crisis is the only crisis in history to have an identity crisis – find out the new and improved official name for Gaia’s impending fiery death and much, much more in this week’s round-up.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore was recently in Australia, the land down under. He took time to meet with 1,000 activists, business leaders and scientists to launch something he likes to call Safe Climate Australia. Frankly, on a continent that has as many natural deadly creatures as Australia, the climate is pretty much a non-issue. Seriously, A Taipan snake, or some warm weather? You figure it out.

zombie steve and a taipan snakezombie steve and a taipan snake

Al failed to meet with Aussie Senator Fielding, a recent convert to the skeptic camp, but he did have time to meet Gimli from the Lord of the Rings, which was nice (you’ll need to click to get the jape). The Goreacle was so excited by a magazine article that he blogged about it. Unfortunately the article that Al found so stimulating didn’t start “Dear Penthouse..”, but it did contain alarmist pr0n:

Just ask Al. We’ll wrap this section with some of my favorite red meat: green on green action.

It’s the green way, don’t blame yourself.CLICK HERE to read the rest and see this weeks Global Hottie!
