Archive for the “Global Wormening” Category

Strangely silent since last month’s LiveEarth flop, the one, the only vessel of all things scientifically credible, the Goreacle of Wormening™ finally speaks. We were beginning to wonder in this shop, if he had found a 24/7 buffet that his handlers couldn’t pry him away from.

But, alas we were wrong and he pops up again, adding a new word into the lexicon for those of us out here that still aren’t buying his bullshit, along with ‘denier’ we’re now propagandists. I’m still waiting for my check from Exxon/Mobil though.

Well, let’s pick up with the purveyor of putrid scientific swindles in Singapore.

Gore: Polluters Manipulate Climate Info

Research aimed at disputing the scientific consensus on global warming is part of a huge public misinformation campaign funded by some of the world’s largest carbon polluters, former Vice President Al Gore said Tuesday.

“There has been an organized campaign, financed to the tune of about $10 million a year from some of the largest carbon polluters, to create the impression that there is disagreement in the scientific community,” Gore said at a forum in Singapore. “In actuality, there is very little disagreement.”

I wonder what Tune they’re playing during the financing? So a paltry $10 million is being spent by all the eevil kkkorporations to make a dent in the lunacy and economic suicide pact, that you’ve built an entire platform on. Not content to have control of virtually every major media outlet, the UN and huge number of academic asshats, you feel the need to muzzle the opposition.

Gore likened the campaign to the millions of dollars spent by U.S. tobacco companies years ago on creating the appearance of scientific debate on smoking’s harmful effects.

We’re quite aware of that effort, the original one where big tobacco refused to admit nicotine was addicting and studies indicated that smoking is bad for you health. But the more recent one on the harmful effects of second-hand smoke has been throughly debunked, although you wouldn’t know it from the Tobacco Nazi’s endless war to keep anyone from engaging in a legal habit. *Pausing to light another Kool* Be careful on the materials you’re building a straw man with there Al.

“This is one of the strongest of scientific consensus views in the history of science,” Gore said. “We live in a world where what used to be called propaganda now has a major role to play in shaping public opinion.”

Absolutely, 100% of the pews in the Church of Gore are in agreement. In the rest of the world almost daily studies are creating cracks in “the strongest consensus”. The propaganda bit is interesting though, almost Freudian, as that is exactly the technique being used to sell the public and government on this whole issue. Along with threats of professional credentials being pulled from ‘deniers’, censure and general black-balling of the few honest scientists now coming forward. A long time ago, there was quite a bit of ’scientific’ consensus that the earth was flat. History seems to be repeating itself here, replete with the attacks on anyone questioning the veracity of your hypothesis. The only thing lacking is an inquisition, but nobody expects the Goreacle inquisition.

More honest scientists are coming forward pointing out the asinine ‘alternatives’ espoused by the Global Wormening crowd, in meeting our energy needs while reducing greenhouse gases. The entire issue and the proposed ’solutions’, primarily massive reductions in the use of carbon based fuels, is a classic placing of the cart before the horse. The Gorebots want, no DEMAND !! world action and legislation, yet viable substitute energy sources are limited. Of course the left has their favorite ‘green’ substitutes, none of which could meet even a fraction of an industrial economy.

Renewable energy could ‘rape’ nature

Ramping up the use of renewable energy would lead to the “rape of nature”, meaning nuclear power should be developed instead. So argues noted conservation biologist and climate change researcher Jesse Ausubel in an opinion piece based on his and others’ research.

Ausubel (who New Scientist interviewed in 2006) says the key renewable energy sources, including sun, wind, and biomass, would all require vast amounts of land if developed up to large scale production – unlike nuclear power. That land would be far better left alone, he says.

And we aren’t talking vast acreage for solar or wind power farms, we’re talking vast square mileage.

Renewables are “boutique fuels” says Ausubel, of Rockefeller University in New York, US. “They look attractive when they are quite small. But if we start producing renewable energy on a large scale, the fallout is going to be horrible.”

Instead, Ausubel argues for renewed development of nuclear. “If we want to minimize the rape of nature, the best energy solution is increased efficiency, natural gas with carbon capture, and nuclear power.”
‘Massive infrastructure’

After spending a considerable portion of my adult life in the Nuclear Energy business, it’s amazing to hear the environmental types even mention the evil “N” word.

Ausubel draws his conclusions by analyzing the amount of energy renewables, natural gas, and nuclear can produce in terms of power per square metre of land used. Moreover, he claims that as renewable energy use increases, this measure of efficiency will decrease as the best land for wind, biomass, and solar power gets used up.

Moreover, once the warmeners start seeing the bulldozers leveling their backyards for miles off into the horizon, the screaming will start. Remember the flap over the Cape Cod off-shore wind farm?

Using biofuels to obtain the same amount of energy as a 1000 megawatt nuclear power plant would require 2500 square kilometres of prime Midwestern farm land, Ausubel says. “We should be sparing land for nature, not using it as pasture for cars and trucks,” he adds.

He’s actually being conservative there. Most nuclear facilities are multi-unit plants typically having two reactor plants on site. The last generation of reactor, nuclear steam supply system and generators produce about 1400-1500 megawatts of electricity. Two of these plants at the same site producing nearly 3000 megawatts would fit nicely onto about 50 acres, much of which would be the open areas required for security between the fences and the actual buildings. So using Mr. Ausubel’s thumbrule in a real world example, your average nuclear generating station produces energy that would take 7500 square kilometers. (call it 2900 square miles). The State of Rhode Island has about 1000 square miles in total land area, and Delaware 1955 square miles of land area, to get a good reference on those numbers. I like his thinking and give him a pass on relinquishing highways for cavorting wabbits.

So put simply, it would take a biofuel energy farm the size of both Rhode Island and Delaware to produce 1000 megawatts of juice.

Remulak MoxArgon exposes, and then thoroughly shreds, the *coughbullshitcough* “open-mindedness” *coughbullshitcough* of a Marxist fucknozzle, one “Komrade Michael T. Eckhart”, pRresident of the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE), towards a fellow Ivy Leaguer who doesn’t subscribe to The Great GlowBull Worming Scam™, one Marlo Lewis.

Marlo –

You are so full of crap.

You have been proven wrong. The entire world has proven you wrong. You are the last guy on Earth to get it. Take this warning from me, Marlo. It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar. If you produce one more editorial against climate change, I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity. I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members. I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America. Go ahead, guy. Take me on.

Mike

Michael T. Eckhart
President
American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE)

Apparently Komrade Eckhart didn’t learn, during his years of cock swallowing behind the ivy-encrusted walls, that us Eeeeevil VRWC Kapitalists™ don’t take too kindly to threats. ESPECIALLY threats from a limp-wristed, mewling Licker of Lenin’s Left Testicle™, who just happened to have the tonsil capacity to fellate his way through an Ivy League school, instead of the once-required mental capacity to grok more than one variable of a multi-faceted, non-static, open energy system.

Go read Remulak’s ruthless bitchslapping of Komrade Eckhart and, by proxy, the entire Stoopid Side of the Idiotarian Parallel Universal Divide™.

Seems like even the useful idiots of the MSM, had to extract their tongues from Gorebot’s anus long enough to point out the obvious:

Earth Underwhelmed By Environment Pop Extravaganza

Previous Imperial intelligence indicated the much-ballyhood event was being canceled (at some locations) due to lack of ticket sales and shifted to smaller venues, even we expected 1000 point font headlines proclaiming a massive victory for Mother Gaia. But we were wrong, and delightfully so.

They rocked the world, but as the clean-up at nine climate change gigs around the globe begins, many wonder if the galaxy of pop stars did much to change it.

In other words, after the bong hits wore off, most realized their plan to save the world went unnoticed by anyone outside of the Church of Gore.

U.S. and British media were generally underwhelmed on Sunday by Live Earth, the mega-concert organized by former U.S. vice president and green campaigner Al Gore, which, though built on the model of Live Aid and Live 8, created a less positive buzz. Emph Mine

Oh now that is a shame, they couldn’t even get a good buzz at the concerts, other than the snores during the ‘informative’ breaks.

In Germany, however, newspapers were more upbeat about Saturday’s gigs designed to pressure leaders to sign a new treaty by 2009 that would cut global warming pollution by 90 percent in rich nations and more than half worldwide by 2050.

Slow news day in Deutschland obviously or maybe the press-box served the best brats and beer.

Several articles examined the green credentials of artists on the day, including Madonna, whose annual “carbon footprint” was estimated at around 100 times the average Briton’s.

The News of the World tabloid, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, detailed estimates of Madonna’s carbon emissions from nine houses, a fleet of cars, a private jet and the Confessions tour, calling her a “climate-change catastrophe.”

The Sunday Telegraph quoted U.S. reports of her alleged financial links to companies accused of being major polluters.

More proof that the left eats it’s own young. Not content with one of the actual supporters of the Cause™, they gleefully turn on them. Where’s a good Offset Salesman when you need one?

Her spokeswoman in Britain was not immediately available for comment, but in a statement appearing in the Independent on Sunday, her New York spokeswoman said:

“Madonna’s agreeing to sing at the Live Earth Event is merely one of the first steps in her commitment towards being environmentally responsible.”

The second step being to classify her douche water as bio-hazard waste.

The negative headlines took some gloss off Madonna’s widely praised appearance at Wembley Stadium in London, where she sang her specially written anthem “Hey You” before a raunchy performance of three of her biggest hits.

Raunchy and Madonna in the same paragraph is rather redundant isn’t it?

The New York Times’ online edition on Sunday featured a small picture of the event and a headline linking to “Artsbeat Blog,” and in Britain only the Independent on Sunday made anything more than a fleeting reference on its front page.

You know you’ve bombed when the Constipated Gray Lady, can’t even give you a glowing review.

But in Germany, where Snoop Dogg was among the acts at the Hamburg gig, Live Earth dominated headlines.

“The bottom line is that if nothing else, the issue of climate protection was a lot of fun for two billion people for one day,” wrote Bild am Sonntag, Germany’s best-selling Sunday newspaper.

Two Billion in Hamburg? We need to purchase the distribution rights to whatever they’re ingesting at the Sonntag.

Organizers say that in addition to the tens of thousands of fans at the gigs, the television, radio and internet audience could be as large as two billion.

Commentators noted the difficulty in marrying pop music with serious themes like the environment.

What’s the matter gansta-rappers and sluts don’t have the gravitas to carry your message to anyone with a few functional neurons ?

“Mixing music and a serious message gives concert a clunky rhythm,” was the Washington Post’s description of the Wembley gig, arguably the biggest lineup on the day that featured Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and the Foo Fighters.

Performances were interspersed with long gaps, some of them filled by short films on environmental themes.

Such brilliant marketing strategy, load the stage with has-beens and losers, charge your victims exorbitantly and then treat them to the clips of “An Incontinent Truth”. You’re lucky most of the fans remained conscious and the organizers having to pay for the stretcher-bearers to haul them out afterwards.

Many performers were “on message,” calling on crowds from Sydney and Tokyo to New York and Rio de Janeiro to cut down on their personal carbon dioxide emissions and recycle.

Hmm…that’s interesting, last we heard a court injunction had been obtained for the event on Copacabana Beach. Maybe they found a Starbuck’s or abandoned truck-bed somewhere.

Yet U.S. comedian Chris Rock expressed the kind of disbelief shared by many on the day that Live Earth would make a lasting difference, even if he was only joking:

“I pray that this event ends global warming the same way that Live Aid ended world hunger,” he said in London.

It’s not joking, you moron, it’s satire and rather good at that.

So much for the Al Gore, Rock-Star and Eco-Warrior image.

(Thanks to the indispensable Sir Christopher)

A “journalist”, for lack of a more accurate and descriptive word, dons his kneepads, drops and reaches out for the Great One’s zipper with trembling hands:

Al Gore’s image as a rock-star eco-warrior gets another high-voltage jolt of celebrity endorsement Saturday when the music world gathers to raise awareness for global warming at Live Earth.

And, according to our sources, the music world will be gathering to play for each other mainly, considering the less that enthusiastic response at the ticket booths.

But despite a growing clamour for the beaten 2000 presidential election candidate to enter next year’s race for the White House, the chances of Gore running for office again remain remote, analysts say.

Bugger all! We’d love to watch him get beaten like a red-headed, morbidly obese stepchild again.

Breathlessly described by admirers as “the coolest ex-US vice-president ever”,

They do have a point, you know. Just look at the rather fascinating effect upon local climes whenever the Goreacle approaches. Maybe we could talk him into traveling to global wormening hot spots to alleviate the effect?

Gore has consistently stated he has no interest in launching a 2008 election bid, while stopping short of unequivocally ruling himself out.

He leaves that part to the voters. Nothing new there either.

“I haven’t ruled it out, but I don’t think it’s likely to happen,” Gore said in a recent interview with Time Magazine.

Yet Gore’s prominent involvement in events like Live Earth — which will see over 150 stars perform in eight concerts around the world to urge governments to set climate change targets — will inevitably breathe new life into calls for a 2008 White House bid.

Or seven. Or six. Well, maybe four. OK, dammit, TWO concerts. The penguins in Antarctica will be thrilled.

However, Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a political scientist at the University of Southern California, said she doubted Gore would enter the running.

“I don’t think at this point he’s thinking about it,” Jeffe said. “He’s having so much fun where he is,” she added, referring to Gore’s new-found status as crusading environmental campaigner,

“Crusading” being the operative word here, although it’s doubtful that he’ll ever reach the Holy Land. Which is good. They wouldn’t much like the blizzards, we’re sure.

So the Goreacle goes to Londonistan to attend one of his much-touted “Live Earth” concerts — he pretty much had to or the bands would’ve been playing for themselves — and…

Oh, why bother, you already know the rest, don’t you?

Dear G-d, stop it. The laughter — it HURTS!!!

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I wondered weak and weary
Why the Goreacle is such a tedious, monumental bore.
Surely in the loads of drivel, tripe to make a man’s brain shrivel,
Interspersed with jibes uncivil, there’d be something to explore?
Could that whole ungodly slideshow be but lies and nothing more?
Would that someone had kept score!

Frantically in search of answers to Al Gore’s extravaganzas,
Mine eyes did light upon a paper lying on my office floor.
‘Fore my eyes two words were forming, words that looked like “global warming”,
Soon I found myself a-storming, straight across my office floor
To snatch up that hopeful beacon like a ship in search of shore.
Wanting badly to learn more.

There, within its brittle pages, words of scientific sages
Summarized the essence of the Gorebot’s claims of yore.
Are the mountains’ snowy summits shrinking as the coolness plummets,
Or, as some say, due to forests fewer than there were before?
Who is right and free of folly with a hand on wisdom’s door?
Quoth the experts: “Not Al Gore.”

What about the winds a-blowing, are their forces ever growing
Caused by global heating’s menace, doomed to rise forevermore?
Or is the real truth quite another? Is there no rise in windy bother?
Is it true our Earthly mother has less storms than e’er before?
Who is using facts to silence his opponent’s witless roar?
Quoth the experts: “Not Al Gore.”

Are the deserts getting bigger with unheard of vim and vigor
Leaving naught but arid wastelands as we watch the tempr’ture soar?
Or perhaps the sand’s retreating while poor farmers now are meeting
Ends on green land that was nothing but a sea of sand before?
One of the two sides is telling nothing but the truth; no more.
Quoth the experts: “Not Al Gore.”

Are the tundras really melting, caused by warming’s heavy welting
While the ursine ice floe dwellers float on ice cubes far from shore?
Or, perhaps, they’re getting colder, leaving nary an ice-free boulder
While the ice sheets cover more land than they did the year before?
Who had nailed this vital question with real science true and sure?
Quoth the experts: “Not Al Gore.”

I put the paper down and wondered where humanity had blundered
Putting faith in mindless cretins that sane people should ignore.
“There is one born every minute, with the brains G-d gave a linnet.”
I thought and saw the gospel in it, “thus it will be evermore.”
To whom should one turn for advice for what the future has in store?
Quoth the experts: “NOT AL GORE!”

or something (link via Best of the Web):

Members of six tribes recently gathered near the Baker River in the White Mountains for a sacred ceremony honoring “Earth Mother.” Talking Hawk, a Mohawk Indian who asked to be identified by his Indian name, pointed to the river’s tea-colored water as proof that the overwhelming amount of pollution humans have produced has caused changes around the globe.

“It’s August color. It’s not normal,” he said.

“Earth Mother is fighting back - not only from the four winds, but also from underneath,” he said. “Scientists call it global warming. We call it Earth Mother getting angry.”

The scientific consensus grows. 10 out of 10 tribal shamans agree: The Goreacle is right! So take that and shove it, you Evil Holocaust Global Warming Deniers.

The debate is over, and the Church of Gorebecility won.

Elsewhere, yet more victims of Angry Earth Mother™:

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon apparently doesn’t believe that the United Nations is mocked enough as he has said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon, in an article published this weekend.

Now, before you get too harsh on poor Spanky Moon’s tender ego, consider what he replaced. Kaffir Annan was evil, corrupt and an imbecile. So far, his replacement has only proven to be an imbecile.

Watch out for the new tree hugger slogan: “Save Darfur, turn off the light!”

It makes sense, in some perverted, “logic need not apply”, liberal touchy-feely sort of way. Not only does blaming the genocide in Darfur on Global Wormening absolve the Useless Nitwits (and the Goreacle and his lobotomized Gorebeciles) of any duty to actually, you know, do something about Darfur and thus risk offending members of the religion of rancid piss, it also means that aging, patchouli-drenched hippies can drive around in their Priuses with “Save Darfur!” stickers on them while believing that they are contributing to something other than the decline of the national IQ average.

Is there anything that Global Wormening doesn’t cause?

Next week, our article: “How Polar Bears Adrift on Break-Away Lumps of Ice Caused 9/11.”

Who KNEW? (h/t Hot Air).

A Guardian investigation has found evidence of serious irregularities at the heart of the process the world is relying on to control global warming.

Not “the world”. Just the retarded, easily-fooled, ridiculously gullible part of its inhabitants. Those of us with functioning brains couldn’t care less about your Indulgence Scam.

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which is supposed to offset greenhouse gases emitted in the developed world by selling carbon credits from elsewhere, has been contaminated by gross incompetence, rule-breaking and possible fraud by companies in the developing world, according to UN paperwork, an unpublished expert report and alarming feedback from projects on the ground.

Gross incompetence, rule-breaking and possible fraud and the U.N., all in the same paragraph? I’m shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!

One senior figure suggested there may be faults with up to 20% of the carbon credits - known as certified emissions reductions - already sold.

Whereas there are faults with 100% of the heads belonging to the suckers buying the things.

Since these are used by European governments and corporations to justify increases in emissions, the effect is that in some cases malpractice at the CDM has added to the net amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere.

Not to mention near-catastrophic increases in hot air from all the mindless bloviating perpetrated by the Church of the Gorebecile and its followers.
