Poor school teacher how ye shew to us with each finger’s tick ter be not worthy
Facts are facts:
“Global Warming refers to an obscure statistical quantity, globally averaged temperature anomaly, the small residue of far larger and mostly uncorrelated local anomalies. This quantity is highly uncertain, but may be on the order of 0.7C over the past 150 years. This quantity is always varying at this level and there have been periods of both warming and cooling on virtually all time scales. On the time scale of from 1 year to 100 years, there is no need for any externally specified forcing. The climate system is never in equilibrium because, among other things, the ocean transports heat between the surface and the depths. To be sure, however, there are other sources of internal variability as well.
“Because the quantity we are speaking of is so small, and the error bars are so large, the quantity is easy to abuse in a variety of ways.”
~R. S. Lindzen
Should there be consequences when we learn that academics engaged in fraud, collusion and corruption to deceive the public or should they still be guaranteed lifetime employment and payed with taxpayer dollars to destroy capitalism and help facilitate a liberal fascist state of fear?
Why is the Left so threatened by those who value individual liberty? And, why is the Left driven to bring America down like their comrades have done in so many other places around the world?
Isn’t denying the poor access to cheap energy such as fossil fuels immoral? Why are AGW True Believers cheerfully participating in this crime against humanity while keeping women down in the third world and dooming developing countries to poverty and an out-of-control worldwide population explosion?
As Fekete says, “Putting the developing world on a rapid path to economic growth” is the only humane thing to do.
Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore sees through the charade. He wrote a book about global warming alarmism and the politics of fear that the enviro-whackpots have been using since the ’70s to bilk money from gullible old ladies.
Global warming is not a problem but fear of it is. “Acting in panic mode will probably do more damage than good.” ~Balázs M. Fekete
Do EPA government science authoritarians control average global temperatures (or, is it the sun, stupid)? A secular, socialist US government is essentially using the EPA to engage in an academic exercise which is the equivalent of casting of chicken bones to foretell the future and playing with the lives of the productive in the bargain.
Astounding! Amazing. EPA documentation accompanying proposed greenhouse gas emission regulations states that it’s regulations will reduce the average global temperature by ‘0.006 to 0.0015C by 2100,’ but that of course assumes that we are not headed for an overdue ice age in 50 years, right? Reality is stranger than fiction.
An open letter from the grave to the EPA, and to all of the sick AGW True Believer/enviro-whackpots who suffer from Hot World Syndrome, and to the government science authoritarians (Lenin’s ‘useful idiots’) and to all of the secular, socialist, witchdoctors of academia practicing global warming voodoo in the West’s Education Industrial Institutions (‘The notion that these institutions are liberal is a cruel joke. They are fascist to the core’):
“Has it ever occurred to you how astonishing the culture of Western society really is? Industrialized nations provide their citizens with unprecedented safety, health, and comfort. Average life spans increased fifty percent in the last century. Yet modern people live in abject fear. They are afraid of strangers, disease, of crime, of the environment. They are afraid of the homes they live in, the food they eat, the technology that surrounds them. They are in a particular panic over things they can’t even see–germs, chemicals, additives, pollutants. They are timid, nervous, fretful, and depressed. And even more amazingly, they are convinced that the environment of the entire planet is being destroyed around them. Remarkable! Like the belief in witchcraft, it’s an extraordinary delusion–a global fantasy worthy of the Middle Ages. Everything is going to hell, and we must all live in fear. Amazing.” ~Crichton
We live in a country that is far different from any historical example. Only here and at this time in history do we see the productive saddled with so many tax-eating citizens who are uncertain about if those who put the fat on their bones are the good guys in this world. Never before has such a nation survived such hypocritical enemies from within.
Certainly a sign of a healthy life, mind and soul is not merely being able to survive an exchange of ideas. You also must know that not just anything someone else may say, think or do is an equally sensible and a rational alternative to American traditions, culture and societal norms.
Sometimes, someone–maybe someone like Salman Rushdie for example who is not an American–just may have to say to others on our behalf, “Hey, your good ideas suck. Take’m someplace else if you don’t like the way we do things here.” French president Sarkozy essentially said the very same thing. Oh my!
Is the West finally ready to stand up and kick Lenin’s ‘useful idiots’ to the curb? Will the West finally stand up and boot those in the secular, socialist Education Industrial Complex who on the taxpayers’ dime preach nothing but nihilism, self-defeatism and anti-Americanism?
If the allocation of scarce resources is not market-based then by definition it’s inefficient, arbitrary and unsustainable. Only through unleashing the power of the individual with a free mind in a free society can humanity access the universe of limitless opportunity. The greatest threat to individual liberty is bigger and bigger secular, socialist government.
Human progress is NOT a given. The greatest advance in humanism has been Americanism–i.e., unabashed respect for the rights of the individual. Anyone who believes in the Constitution must believe in individualism not socialism. Anyone who believes in the scientific method cannot accept global warming alarmism based on reductionism or any other dogmatism such as substitutiing progressionism for realism.
[T]he progression-type methods of the so-called hockey stick studies of Mann, Bradley, and Hughes [MBH] suffer from a number of problems which should have been addressed before the hockey stick was elevated to an authoritative description of the temperature history of the past 1,000 years …
The key statistical assumption of any of such methods is the uniformity of informational content in the proxies which are regressed on the climate variables (mostly temperature) … Regression-type models are designed so that they return only part of the full variability of the variable of interest, namely that part which can be traced back to the proxies. Not all of the variability can be accounted for in this way. The difference in variability of temperature and of proxy-derived temperature is dealt with by ‘scaling’, i.e., by applying a suitable normalization. If “scaling” is used, then the basic principle of regression is violated, as the part of variability in the predictand (temperature), which can not statistically traced back to the predictor (proxy), is nevertheless related to predictor-variability. Scaling is useful, when the transfer function is not regression (screening of co-variability of two variables) but based on physical arguments … The problem with MBH was that the result was presented by the IPCC and others in a manner so that one could believe a realistic description of historical temperature variations had successfully been achieved. The NRC report published in June 2006 has made clear that such a belief was incorrect. ~Dr. Hans von Storch
Only in liberal Utopia is Leftist propaganda an adequate substitute for reality–especially when it comes to believing school teachers can control the weather. Snow flakes are no longer heavenly manifestations even to those whose comfort and security is provided courtesy of taxpayers and that too is very sad.
