Climate Change - The Anti-Capitalism Agenda

As if we didn't need more proof of the true, anti-capitalism agend of the Left's man-made climate change, check out this article which ran a couple of days ago.

Opening a UN forum on the global impact of climate change on indigenous peoples, Mr Morales said that capitalism should be scrapped if the planet is to be saved from the effects of climate change.

"If we want to save our planet earth, we have a duty to put an end to the capitalist system," he said.

That pretty much sums it up! Buy into man-made global warming, bye-bye capitalism.

Karl Marx would be so proud of Al Gore, James Hanson & Co.

Expelled, The Movie

I just watched Ben Stein's Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. It's a thought-provoking exposé that I am sure will be resoundingly deplored by the left, the Politically Correct crowd.

It essentially is an in depth look at the complete lack of freedom of thought and speech within the academic and science communities when it comes to Darwinism. Anyone who even questions the accepted dogma is promptly drummed out of their job. Even exploring possible alternative views is considered heresy worthy of denying tenure and/or termination of employment.

He further lays out how Darwinian thought laid the groundwork for Hitler and his Nazi regime. Ben does NOT argue that Darwinian thought equals Nazism, but its hard to see how you could have Nazism without Darwin's theories.

The same principles laid the foundations of eugenics, which thankfully most thinking people have long since abandoned. But its connection to the founder of Planned Parenthood is also drawing fire from the left.

The parallels with the current scientific dogma surrounding anthropogenic global warming (er, "climate change" to stay current with the evolving dogma) are astounding. Scientists who even dare depart from the "consensus" (amazingly, the same word is used consistently throughout Darwinian discussions) is deemed a heretic not worthy of research funding or publication.

The good news is that nature WILL provide us objective proof of the silliness of the CO2-based theories on global warming as we watch CO2 continue to rise as global temperatures fall. Eventually, even the hardcore alarmists will have to admit the error of their ways.

Unfortunately, the Richard Dawkins' of the world will find out whether they're right or wrong when they are well beyond the point of being able to do anything about it.

A Call for Sanity

For all those who've been told "the science is settled" read the following letter which was sent to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations concerning the UN Climate conference in Bali (note the signers and their qualifications):

Dec. 13, 2007

Dear Mr. Secretary-General,

Re: UN climate conference taking the World in entirely the wrong direction

It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity through the ages. Geological, archaeological, oral and written histories all attest to the dramatic challenges posed to past societies from unanticipated changes in temperature, precipitation, winds and other climatic variables. We therefore need to equip nations to become resilient to the full range of these natural phenomena by promoting economic growth and wealth generation.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued increasingly alarming conclusions about the climatic influences of human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2), a non-polluting gas that is essential to plant photosynthesis. While we understand the evidence that has led them to view CO2 emissions as harmful, the IPCC's conclusions are quite inadequate as justification for implementing policies that will markedly diminish future prosperity. In particular, it is not established that it is possible to significantly alter global climate through cuts in human greenhouse gas emissions. On top of which, because attempts to cut emissions will slow development, the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to increase human suffering from future climate change rather than to decrease it.

The IPCC Summaries for Policy Makers are the most widely read IPCC reports amongst politicians and non-scientists and are the basis for most climate change policy formulation. Yet these Summaries are prepared by a relatively small core writing team with the final drafts approved line-by-line by government ­representatives. The great majority of IPCC contributors and reviewers, and the tens of thousands of other scientists who are qualified to comment on these matters, are not involved in the preparation of these documents. The summaries therefore cannot properly be represented as a consensus view among experts.

Contrary to the impression left by the IPCC Summary reports:

  • Recent observations of phenomena such as glacial retreats, sea-level rise and the migration of temperature-sensitive species are not evidence for abnormal climate change, for none of these changes has been shown to lie outside the bounds of known natural variability.
  • The average rate of warming of 0.1 to 0. 2 degrees Celsius per decade recorded by satellites during the late 20th century falls within known natural rates of warming and cooling over the last 10,000 years.
  • Leading scientists, including some senior IPCC representatives, acknowledge that today's computer models cannot predict climate. Consistent with this, and despite computer projections of temperature rises, there has been no net global warming since 1998. That the current temperature plateau follows a late 20th-century period of warming is consistent with the continuation today of natural multi-decadal or millennial climate cycling.
In stark contrast to the often repeated assertion that the science of climate change is "settled," significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming. But because IPCC working groups were generally instructed (see IPCC Working Group Schedule) to consider work published only through May, 2005, these important findings are not included in their reports; i.e., the IPCC assessment reports are already materially outdated.

The UN climate conference in Bali has been planned to take the world along a path of severe CO2 restrictions, ignoring the lessons apparent from the failure of the Kyoto Protocol, the chaotic nature of the European CO2 trading market, and the ineffectiveness of other costly initiatives to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Balanced cost/benefit analyses provide no support for the introduction of global measures to cap and reduce energy consumption for the purpose of restricting CO2 emissions. Furthermore, it is irrational to apply the "precautionary principle" because many scientists recognize that both climatic coolings and warmings are realistic possibilities over the medium-term future.

The current UN focus on "fighting climate change," as illustrated in the Nov. 27 UN Development Programme's Human Development Report, is distracting governments from adapting to the threat of inevitable natural climate changes, whatever forms they may take. National and international planning for such changes is needed, with a focus on helping our most vulnerable citizens adapt to conditions that lie ahead. Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems.

Another AGW Myth Bites the Dust

It seems all the doom and gloom about global warming wreaking havoc through more hurricanes is, well.....not so much!

Check out this article: Hurrican Expert Reconsiders Global Warming's Impact

I can just see and hear Al Gore grimacing and stomping his foot as another myth bites the dust.

Check out more news about the former global warming alarmists who are now recognizing the models aren't working and the science hasn't been adding up.

And one more of interest, Climate change confirmed but global warming is cancelled is a good read on the ever increasting science showing the alarmists are all wet!

Now you know why it's such a priority for Al Gore to spend the big bucks before the AGW house of cards collapses completely.

Cashing in on Global Warming: The Story the Media is Ignoring

Where are all the investigative reporters? Have they become an extinct species? Gee, four polar bears wash up after a severe storm and suddenly all 22,000 are in imminent danger. But all the investigative reporters disappear and no one notices?

Well, may there are a few left outside the mainstream. An excellent article by one shining example, Judi McLeod, entitled "Creators of carbon credit scheme cashing in on it" highlights the relationship between Al Gore and Maurice Strong. It's an eye-opener and worth a read.

Instead of running puff pieces with Scary Al, perhaps 60 Minutes should do an in depth piece on the loss of real reporting in the mainstream media.

U.S. is Not the Polluter the Greens Claim

The Pacific Research Institute just released their 2008 Environmental Index which they claim debunks the myth that the U.S. lags Europe in our environmental friendliness. The following are a few excerpts from their report.

Here's an excerpt from their press release:

The 2008 Index also provides new analysis in practical terms on the widespread call for an 80 percent reduction in C02 emissions in the United States by the year 2050. “The enthusiasm for this target is often justified on the general grounds that national policy should set an ambitious goal,” Dr. Hayward, said. “Our analysis shows the stark unreality of what this goal means for the lifestyles of Americans. In the absence of some truly revolutionary breakthroughs in energy technology that are wholly speculative at this point, achieving the 80 percent target will mean no hot water, no refrigerators, and no air conditioning, never mind flat screen TVs.”
  • The United States last emitted CO2 at this level in the year 1910, when the population was only 92 million. By 2050, the United States will have 420 million people, requiring a per-capita emissions rate not seen in the nation since 1875.
  • To achieve the 80-percent reduction target in 2050, the U.S. per-capita emissions will have to be less than 2.5 tons (down from approximately 20 tons today). The only nations today that have GHG emissions that low are desperately poor nations, such as Haiti and Somalia. Even France and Switzerland, the two industrialized nations with the lowest use of fossil-fuel energy sources, emit about 6.5 tons of C02 per capita.
  • Automobile fuel consumption will have to fall by more than 80 percent. Unless gasoline can be replaced with carbon-free fuel, American drivers will have to switch to high-mileage cars (likely small and lightweight cars) and cut their amount of driving by more than half.
  • Unless there is a genuine breakthrough in carbon-free electricity, households will not be able to use enough electricity to run a hot-water heater without exceeding the 2.5 tons per-capita emissions ceiling. Forget flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, and refrigerators.

“The 80 percent reduction target is unrealistic at any price, akin to King Canute commanding the tides, or the equivalent of John F. Kennedy pledging the nation in 1961 to land a man on Mars by the year 1970,” Dr. Hayward said.

CBS Shakeup No Surprise

CBS' recent firings around the country should come as no surprise. They attribute their decline in revenues to the growing use of the Internet and alternative media. I'm sure that is part of their problem.

But an element they may be overlooking is the drastic decline in true journalism we've witnessed over the last couple of decades. They were at the center of one of those ethics storms when Dan Rather promoted the bogus smear on George W.'s national guard records. CBS news has been in a steady state of decline ever since.

One of the casualties of this recent round of cuts was Minneapolis weatherman Paul Douglas of WCCO. I always thought Paul was a decent enough guy, and he was as accurate as most weathermen -- meaning most forecasts of 24-48 hours were in the ballpark, but anything beyond that was a wild-eyed guess, although they seldom admit it.

My trouble with Paul was his unbridled advocacy for the global warming alarmist position. Just give me the weather, Paul....don't constantly spin it towards your political views.

CBS has a much bigger problem in the Minneapolis market, however. News anchor Don Shelby is the poster child for everything that's wrong in modern journalism. His "reporting" on climate issues is nothing short of pure political propaganda. He will purposely spike stories that even hint at calling into question his dogma of man-made global warming.

I used to watch WCCO quite regularly, but reached a point that his biased reporting on numerous topics was so blatant I couldn't stomach five minutes of it. I switched channels and I haven't been back since. I won't even check them out again as long as DFL Don is on the air.

As Sgt. Friday used to day, "Just the facts, Ma'am."

P.S. Despite all the dire predictions of alarmists, Minnesota continues to participate in the record non-warming weather patterns. A recent storm dumped 32" of snow in northern Minnesota, surpassing the previous April record of 28". It is also the second most snow dumped in a 24 hour period, surpassed only by a storm back in 1933...before the onset of man's brutal assault on our climate, at least according to the alarmist's view.

We Cannot Solve It!

Visit to learn more about the non-consensus and lack of debate on the important issue of man-made climate change!  It's a small attempt at a counter-attack to Al Gore & Friend's $300,000,000.00 compaign to convince you to give up your rights, freedoms and money to combat a non-existent threat to our planet.

For the record, our earth happily survived for a long, long time before we arrived, and will likely survive long after we're gone....and the climate won't be significantly different!

Where are the True Journalists?

Al Gore launches a $300 million dollar campaign to convince the "tiny, tiny minority" of Americans that remain skeptical of global warming alarmism that it is a problem, and no one in the mainstream media bothers to question who is funding this propaganda effort.

It only further proves that the media is snugly in bed with the Left and the AGW alarmists. At a minimum you'd think they would have to look at Gore's personal financial interests in adoption of his radical position, like Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman, and which stands to make billions of dollars if a cap-and-trade system is established.

For another good article on this topic, click here.

Another article worth reading is here.

Bush Proves Himself Smarter than Gore Once Again

At the outset of Gore's $300M propaganda blitz for global warming alarmism, a recently published article in Nature points out the wisdom of Bush's approach to addressing climate change versus Gore's approach. A summary, along with a link to the original article, are available here.

It must be a constant source of frustration to the Left to be continually out-smarted by the guy they believe to be intellectually challenged.
