Much to absolutely nobody’s surprise, the EUroweenie “Leftist Nutjob of the Year” Award went to the Gorebecile for his outstanding work in creating a work of fiction based on nothing resembling facts, advancing global transnational socialist government and promoting a new religion.

If any of you are left wondering what on Earth creating a PowerPoint slideshow based on made-up assertions and untruths, as asserted by a court of law and a number of scientists too large to mention, has to do with peace, you haven’t been paying attention. The Nobel Peace Prize may be a lot of things, but a recognition of an individual or organization’s efforts to promote actual peace hasn’t been one of them since time immemorial.

El Baradei got it for running interference for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who wants nothing more than to “create peace” by wiping out a large portion of the world’s population with nukes that El Baradei has done everything in his power to allow him to create.

Dhimmi Khadr got it for kindly looking the other way, defending genocidal dictators and whitewashing mass murder (oh, and to “provide a kick in the leg to those Evil Bush Loving Neocons and their Global Allies”).

Yasser Arafat got it for his tireless efforts to finish the job that Adolf Hitler had begun, and now the Goreacle™ got it for promoting a false religion whose demands, if met, will lead to global poverty and starvation.

Beginning to see a pattern here?

Obviously, the “peace” that the Nobel Peace Prize promotes is the peace of the grave.

Nobody deserves it more than the Goreacle™. After all, neither Hitler nor Stalin were available for consideration.

We all already know that James Hansen, the NASA “scientist” that likes to get trotted out and proclaim the imminent doom of mankind due to Global Wormening, is a flaming liar. Not only because of his incessant, unscientific whining about the creed of the Church of the Gorebecile, but also because of his pathetic mewling about being “muzzled” by the Bu$hHitlerCheneyBurton Administration in spite of having appeared in at least 1,400 interviews (can I have some of that “muzzling” too, please?).

Now it turns out (h/t The Jawa Report) that he’s not only a lying liar telling flaming lies, he’s also a paid mercenary for none other than George “I Helped The Nazis During WWII” Soros.

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely “NASA whistleblower” standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute , which gave him “legal and media advice”?

That’s right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros’ flagship “philanthropy,” by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI’s “politicization of science” program.

That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly “censored” spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda.


No wonder that he suddenly “got religion.”

The Church of the Greenback™, apparently.

Oh well, we already knew that he was a common prostitute. The only difference is that now we know how much George Soros left on the nightstand next to the used condom.

As if we didn’t know already, here’s the real reason behind the biggest push of junk science in the history of mankind (thanks to LC Rob):

WASHINGTON — Dealing with global warming will be painful, says one of the most powerful Democrats in Congress. To back up his claim he is proposing a recipe many people won’t like _ a 50-cent gasoline tax, a carbon tax and scaling back tax breaks for some home owners.

Yep. Holy Mother Gaia is sick, and the only way to cure her is to rob you even blinder. But hey, don’t worry about it. While you’re sitting in the cheap government project apartments that will be all that you can afford with what’s left over from your paycheck, you can find consolation in the fact that you’re saving the planet. Rest assured that the rich and powerful (those would be the worthless 535 swine inhabiting the swamps of the District of Columbia) will be stressing that point as they’re jet-setting all over the globe, having lobster dinners, living in five star hotels and driving 15 limo motorcades on your dime. It’ll make the gruel and porridge go down much easier, we promise!

“I’m trying to have everybody understand that this is going to cost and that it’s going to have a measure of pain that you’re not going to like,” Rep. John Dingell, who is marking his 52nd year in Congress, said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press.

At least Rep. Dingleberry has the virtue of honesty to some extent, in that he doesn’t try to sugarcoat the imminent rape of you, the American taxpayer, all in the name of the worst scam in the history of mankind.

Dingell says he hasn’t rule out such a so-called “cap-and-trade” system, either, but that at least for now he wants to float what he believes is a better idea. He will propose for discussion:

_A 50-cent-a-gallon tax on gasoline and jet fuel, phased in over five years, on top of existing taxes.

Don’t worry and agonize over your next car purchase, because you won’t be able to afford driving it. And aren’t those the same Democrats who want to impose Stalinist price controls on the oil companies and their “obscene profits” in order to keep prices down? We may not be the sharpest tack in the box, but somehow we don’t think that adding an additional half a dollar to the price at the pump is going to help much in that department.

_A tax on carbon, at $50 a ton, released from burning coal, petroleum or natural gas.

You think your energy bills are outrageous and highway robbery now? Thanks to the DemCong majority in Congress you ain’t seen nothing yet. And all in the name of imposing a tax on the generation of the most vanishingly insignificant contribution to the grand total of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

_Phaseout of the interest tax deduction on home mortgages for homes over 3,000 square feet. Owners would keep most of the deduction for homes at the lower end of the scale, but it would be eliminated entirely for homes of 4,200 feet or more.

Of course, what they don’t really want to say out loud is that removing a deduction is exactly the same as a tax increase. Chew on that if you happen to own the humble domicile that you live in. The New And Improved Socialist Government of America™ doesn’t want you peasants to own anything, much less the roof you live under. How are they supposed to keep you under control and in line if that’s the case?

Try to think about your last tax return. Now pull out interest deductions. Wonderful, isn’t it?

He estimates that would affect 10 percent of homeowners. He says “it’s only fair” to tax those who buy large suburban houses and create urban sprawl.

“Divide and conquer.” It’s “only” 10 percent of homeowners, after all and, as Niemuller said: “First they came for the people who owned a home larger than 3,000 square feet, but mine was only 2,900, so I didn’t care.”

Oh, and of course it is only “fair” that people who have worked their asses off their entire lives in order to afford a bigger house should be punished for their “greed.” How DARE they when they, as good little slaves of the Government, ought to have sat on their arses and scraped through in a 1,000 square feet apartment while living off the dole?

But, at least all of those additional blood monies extracted from the already overtaxed population will be used to save us all from the impending doom caused by something that used to be called “weather”, right?

Wrong again:

Some of the revenue would be used to reduce payroll taxes, but most would go elsewhere including for highway construction, mass transit, paying for Social Security and health programs and to help the poor pay energy bills.

Nope. Not a dime. All of the money stolen from you will be used for building highways (for cars that won’t exist anymore) and welfare payments to those who aren’t contributing to the economy. More specifically, to those who then, because their continued living depends on the government’s largess, can be relied upon to always vote for their sugar daddies.

It’s quite simple: Just make sure that the majority of voters are dependent on your welfare handouts and you’ll be guaranteed a majority forever.

But hey, it’s all in the name of Mother Gaia!

At this rate, this catastrophic Global Wormening will eventually have us all covered in mile-thick sheets of ice.

While the news focus has been on the lowest ice extent since satellite monitoring began in 1979 for the Arctic, the Southern Hemisphere (Antarctica) has quietly set a new record for most ice extent since 1979.

This can be seen on this graphic from this University of Illinois site The Cryosphere Today, which updated snow and ice extent for both hemispheres daily. The Southern Hemispheric areal coverage is the highest in the satellite record, just beating out 1995, 2001, 2005 and 2006. Since 1979, the trend has been up for the total Antarctic ice extent.

It’s getting so damn hot we’re freezing to death.

This dichotomy was shown in this World Climate Report blog posted recently with a similar tale told in this paper by Ohio State Researcher David Bromwich, who agreed “It’s hard to see a global warming signal from the mainland of Antarctica right now”.

Unless you specifically leave out The News That Don’t Fit prior to print, of course.

Oh wait, that won’t work. Chickens are meat too, after all. From Her Imperial Highness we get the following laugh riot of a story from the by now thoroughly discredited rag, The Lancet. Really, they ought to stick to ridiculously hyper-inflated civilian casualty figures in reports always strangely coinciding with the Fall season of U.S. election years. How many civilians have we murdered in Iraq by now, according to The Lancet?

600,000? 6,000,000? 45 quadrillion-zillions? Anyway:

LONDON - Eating less meat could help slow global warming by reducing the number of livestock and thereby decreasing the amount of methane flatulence from the animals, scientists said on Thursday.

Reducing the number of brain farts issuing forth from the lunatic asylums that we formerly referred to as “educational institutions” would also help, we’re sure. We could start by making them stop breathing, for instance. Permanently. Which would have the added bonus of saving a boatload of taxpayer funds.

In a special energy and health series of the medical journal The Lancet, experts said people should eat fewer steaks and hamburgers. Reducing global red meat consumption by 10 percent, they said, would cut the gases emitted by cows, sheep and goats that contribute to global warming.

The cows would fart less if we didn’t eat them? Er, OK… If you say so.

“We are at a significant tipping point,” said Geri Brewster,

More specifically, a COW tipping point.

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

…a nutritionist at Northern Westchester Hospital in New York, who was not connected to the study.

Nor, for that matter, with anything even remotely resembling the real world that the rest of us inhabit.

“If people knew that they were threatening the environment by eating more meat, they might think twice before ordering a burger,” Brewster said.

Yep. We’d probably order three instead. With double meat. And a couple of beef brats on the side.

Other ways of reducing greenhouse gases from farming practices, like feeding animals higher-quality grains, would only have a limited impact on cutting emissions.

How about feeding them Beano©?

Gases from animals destined for dinner plates account for nearly a quarter of all emissions worldwide.

“That leaves reducing demand for meat as the only real option,” said Dr. John Powles, a public health expert at Cambridge University, one of the study’s authors.

Nah. We’ll offset our guilt over our dinner’s methane “pollution” by cutting CO2 emissions. By strangling idiot “scientists.”

The amount of meat eaten varies considerably worldwide. In developed countries, people typically eat about 224 grams per day. But in Africa, most people only get about 31 grams a day.

And just look at how well-nourished and healthy they are!

With demand for meat increasing worldwide, experts worry that this increased livestock production will mean more gases like methane and nitrous oxide heating up the atmosphere. In China, for instance, people are eating double the amount of meat they used to a decade ago.

STARVE THE BASTARDS! After all, starvation is so much better than watching the temperature maybe, possibly, for unknown reasons rising about 2 tenths of a degree over a century.

Powles said that if the global average were 90 grams per day, that would prevent the levels of gases from speeding up climate change.

A number that he pulled fresh from his overpaid, underworked arse for the occasion. Which was a pity, seeing as how it worked rather well as a methane plug.

Eating less red meat would also improve health in general. Powles and his co-authors estimate that reducing meat consumption would reduce the numbers of people with heart disease and cancer. One study has estimated that the risk of colorectal cancer drops by about a third for every 100 grams of red meat that is cut out of your diet.

I always knew it had to be a bloody conspiracy. G-d made us omnivores with sharp, pointed canine teeth just so He could watch us all die from colorectal cancer!

“As a society, we are overconsuming protein,” Brewster said. “If we ate less red meat, it would also help stop the obesity epidemic.”

“As a matter of fact, if we stopped eating ALTOGETHER all of our troubles would be OVER, OVER I TELL YOU!”, the madman screeched as the nice men in the white coats dragged him off to another bout of electroshock therapy.

Experts said that it would probably take decades to wane the public off of its meat-eating tendency. “We need to better understand the implications of our diet,” said Dr. Maria Neira, director of director of the World Health Organization’s department of public health and the environment.

“It is an interesting theory that needs to be further examined,” she said. “But eating less meat could definitely be one way to reduce gas emissions and climate change.”

The best part is that the overeducated simpletons keep throwing out assertions like that without ever once, not once offering a shred of actual evidence in support of their claims. And what truly has us in stitches with hysterical laughter is that there are knuckle-dragging dunces out there who keep gobbling it all up without as much as a raised eyebrow.

G-d is both merciful and in possession of a great sense of humor, or surely He would have eradicated those clowns from the face of the Earth a long time ago.

We know that we would have.

Some curious researcher with a lot of time on his hands set out to explore the “broad consensus” regarding Glowball Wormening and started going through all research papers written on the subject over the last four years.

His conclusions? If the Mindless Muttonheads of the Church of Gore™ wish to continue using that talking point, they’ll have to re-define “broad consensus” regarding the “catastrophic consequences” of mankind’s continued living in the industrial age as opposed to the Paleolithic period to mean “7% of scientists.”

Poor Gorebots. First they lose their hockey stick, then they lose their “upcoming catastrophic hurricane seasons” two years in a row and now their “broad consensus” is gone as well.

They’re now officially an even more nutty religion than Scientology.

When the Lamestream Midiots™ need to write a New Age Chicken Little™ story on a slow news day, what, and to whom, do they turn to for their Fool Fodder™? Why, a tornado in NYC and one of AlGore’s most high-profile High Priests of GlowBull Worming™, Doctor Fudge™ (aka James Hansen), of course!

Just check out the headline for this Putrid Pants-load of Pedantic Pandering™

Did Global Warming Cause NYC Tornado?

Nope. No agenda-driven headline there.

Now check out how the Ass-phyxiate Press™ scribbler, David Caruso, tries to establish his Unbiasedness Skreet Kreds™ by starting out his little Modern-day Grimm’s Fairy Tale™

(Note: All emphasis mine—B.)

NEW YORK (AP) — Flooded subways? A tornado in Brooklyn? It was tempting to blame it all on global warming.

Which you’ve just done, with subtle aplomb.

Plenty of public officials were doing just that in the aftermath of a short but violent thunderstorm that paralyzed the nation’s largest mass transit network and tore the roofs off limestone townhouses. But in reality, it is not quite that simple, weather and climate experts say.

But they’ll eventually get around to blaming it on precisely that. It’ll just take a few twists and permutations of the data.

The storm, which gathered strength over Pennsylvania, drenched New Jersey and then pounded the city at sunrise Wednesday was strong but not particularly rare for a hot summer day, said Jeff Warner, a meteorologist at Pennsylvania State University.

Pay close attention to that little bit of information. It’ll come in handy later on.

Climate scientist James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies, agreed: “You cannot blame a single specific event, such as this week’s storm, on climate change,” he said.

Fair enough. But, as our intrepid readers will soon find out, Mr. Hansen will get around to blaming everything, from Shillary’s increased vaginal discharge to the decline in Slick Willie’s sperm count, on Anthropogenic GlowBull Worming™.

“However,” he added, “it is fair to ask whether the human changes have altered the likelihood of such events. There the answer seems to be ‘yes.’”

Yup. Severe thunderstorms are a completely new phenomenon in the United States, popping up only AFTER the invention of the steam engine and discovery of oil in Pennsylvania in the 1800’s.

Storms, Hansen explained in an e-mail to The Associated Press, are fueled by heat and moisture,…

No shit?!?! It’s a damned good thing we’ve got “unbiased experts” like Hansen to explain how those things happen or we’d have kept on thinking that Thor’s Thunderstorm Pixies™ were responsible for rain and lightning. What would we ever DO without “unbiased experts” such as Hansen? It’s not like any of us mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging plebes ever noticed an increase in thunderstorm activity on hot, humid Summer days or anything…

…and our atmosphere is becoming warmer and more humid.

And has been since the last woolly mammoth was skewered and grilled over a Neolithic campfire… But, please, do go on.

And while you’re all recovering from the joy at realizing that House Haji Lugosi will make your energy costs to up by 30% in order to “address glowball wormening” by reducing emissions of CO2 which has not been linked to temperature changes (unless you’re talking about the fact that higher CO2 levels follow higher temperatures, something any first-year student of physics could tell you), we’re happy to tell you that the infamous heap of junk “science” known as the “hockey stick” has been smashed… Again.

Read the whole post, it’s pure gold all of it, but it looks like NASA, or a certain Goreacle-worshipping somebody at NASA named Hansen had been finagling his numbers for a while, refusing to release his algorithms for verification which, among intelligent lifeforms, is generally a sign of something being not quite right. So some enterprising geniuses reverse-engineered the scamgorithms that Hansen didn’t want anybody to see and reached the conclusion that the “record temperatures of the 90s” used as “proof” of the devastating effect of all of those SUVs weren’t quite, you know, records as such. Try the 1930s instead.

I just KNEW it. Glowball Wormening was clearly caused by Hitler re-arming Germany. All of those damn Volkswagens that hippies and other retards love so much DESTROYED GAIA!!!

And Hansen, much like every other Disciple of the Church of Gore, looks to be quite the little fraud.

Bend over, grab your ankles because Teh Most Ethical Congress Evah™, just pulled a quick stunt to redistribute your wealth even more. Don’t count on the Nadless Nabob from Crawford to find the veto pen for this piece of socialist, punitive legislation. It’s literally chock-full of bullshit and libtard swindles covering the real intent of lifting even more drachmas from your wallet. The putative target- Eeevil Big Oil. What the clue-deficient, elected elites can’t seem to understand is basic economics and, whenever taxes go up on any portion of the energy pipeline, “We The People” ultimately pay the tab.

House OKs new taxes for Big Oil

Declaring a new direction in energy policy, the House on Saturday approved $16 billion in taxes on oil companies, while providing billions of dollars in tax breaks and incentives for renewable energy and conservation efforts.

Tax increases for the companies actually capable of meeting our energy needs and breaks and incentives for pie-in-the sky ‘efforts’ to keep the “Wormening Gorebots” happy. You know, the idjits making biodiesel out of used burrito frying oil etc. Nevermind that all the burritos eaten in Kaliforniastan annually, would produce enough used oil to supply a dozen Yugos for 2 trips to the organic market.

Republican opponents said the legislation ignored the need to produce more domestic oil, natural gas and coal. One GOP lawmaker bemoaned “the pure venom … against the oil and gas industry.”

G_d forbid we ever allow a single drop of oil or gas be drilled from areas actually under our control. After all, it might upset the single-testicled, barking cockroach’s habitat. A solitary GOP member finds the cojones to call this monster what it is, venom, pure and simple. Can’t have those big corporations actually making a profit and employing workers. That’s not a good thing for the collective good of the ’state’. Furthermore, those assclowns don’t get it that they’ll (The Eeeevil Big Oiiiil™ companies) just add the new taxes into the cost of doing business and pass it right on down the line to everyone doing business with them.

The House passed the tax provisions by a vote of 221-189. Earlier it had approved, 241-172, a companion energy package aimed at boosting energy efficiency and expanding use of biofuels, wind power and other renewable energy sources.

Look for the formation of a new Federal Incandescent Bulb Police, to begin unannounced inspections to ensure no one is using those evil devices in their homes. They just can’t help themselves from continuing to bally-hoo those favorite buzz-words to keep the eco-freaks well-aroused can they? It just doesn’t matter that none of them are anywhere near practical for all but small businesses (such as retail) and residences. Heavy industry is decades away from obtaining any significant portion of their requirements from renewables, but don’t let that stop the ultimate source of ‘hot’ wind-power from making regulations to use non-existent technology to appease the hippies in time for the ‘08 election season.

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.
