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™.

F.E.T.E.

    Why is it I get the feeling Mr. Eckhart is going to regret this very soon? I think the supposed ridicule he planned to heap on his colleague will somehow end up all over him.

    Excellent catch, B.C.!!!

    And a most excellent fisking by the Extra-Terrestrial Imperial Associates.

    This is the sort of thing that needs to be pulled out and quoted every single time the Glowball Wormening/”tolerant liberals” roll out the tired old blather about there being no intimidation of dissenters in the liberal dystopia.

    Also, it illustrates and proves perfectly the utter lack of actual arguments on the leftard side of the aisle, something that was a major part of the reason that I left the mindless thugs back when I was a teen and never looked back.

    Hmmm Global Warming / tolerant liberals, CAIR / religion of “Peace” advocates.

    Rampant elitism /”we know what is best for you” statists, sharia law / Iman’s proscribing what is “the only way to live”.

    Anti-American policies/feelings, Anti-American policies/feelings.

    “At war against the current administration”, At war against the current American administration.

    Is it just me, or is there a major trend developing between the leftist/statist/progressives and Islamists? They both seem to want the same things. And use much the same kind of language to get it.

    Yessir, I listen to AirAmerika once in a while to see if there has been any change. Their format is terribly frustrating and just a little maddening to a linear logical fellow like me. I can understand that they are ideologically opposed to much of the ideology on the Right, but they never seem to get around to mentioning any specifics. Oh, they’ll name Names, they love that, but when to comes to reporting exactly what said Names did or said when or where, they sort of gloss right over that part. I’m left wondering why said Names are “evil”. To say that someone has lied repeatedly, but failing to provide what it was they lied and why it was a lie, I’m left with blindly taking their word for it. And I can’t do that, for the specifics they provide about themselves and their own activites prove to me that they are wrong more often than not. Or that they’re lying (not that they seem to be able to tell the difference).

    I wonder, are the collective Left simply stupid? I know that they mean well and all, but their methodology is decidedly short-sighted. To be sure, some of their cherished policies would lead to a benefit to certain groups of people in the short run, but would bring incalculable suffering and deprivation to practically everyone else. “If it only saves one … , then it’s worth it” is one of the most easily disprovable and dangerous arguments ever formulated.

    But I rant … Please forgive me, and let us proceed back On Thread.

I mean, if you’re going to accuse someone with something, please at least show up some evidence. Wait, you don’t have any, or a rebuttal to what you colleague said?

    I should probably go bang my head against the wall until it’s bloody rather than post this.

    I think I’m going to write to Dr. Lewis using my official e-mail address and full credentials and see if there really was such an e-mail. The way it’s written doesn’t ring true. It would have been worded differently. I think it’s a hoax. (and that has nothing to do with my opinion of global warming)

    If the e-mail is true:
    I did a bit of research for this. Neither of them is currently in academia–the only reason it comes up is for mud-slinging. The Harvard comment is because they both have advanced Harvard degrees. Eckhart has an MBA, and Lewis has a government PhD. However, Eckhart has an undergrad engineering degree, while Lewis has no science background.

    Neither is unbiased!
    1) Lewis is a policy expert for an institute created specifically to debunk global warming that has received $2 million in ExxonMobil funding. I could not find evidence that he has produced any data of his own. That puts him in a different category than scientists who produce contradictory datat. I don’t think they would get evil e-mails like this.

    2) Eckhart is promoting renewable energy. He is a veteran and has worked in the private sector (incl GE). It’s not like he’s some socialist. I went through the science database at the local university library. He has published a couple scientific papers in the past. There were 6400 listings for M. Lewis–not worth my time to search through, but given his background anything he published would be on policy, and his list of his releases on the institute’s site tends to bear that out.

    There is a lot of money to be made in renewable energy. China’s 5th richest billionaire makes photovoltaic cells (the evil NYT)

    Now that commentary linked to here makes a big production because there is no “proof.” Well, you don’t go into proof in a short hostile e-mail. It would seem like there has been debate in the past, or there would not be such a nasty e-mail. I don’t like invective–I don’t think people should send e-mails like that. It’s extremely unprofessional.

    And as far as the evil GW scam: National Academy of Sciences, Science–hardly left-wing entities. And once again, it’s a theory, not considered a proven fact.

    Wayne–I did start looking into your Australian post about GW censorship, but it was really late. I’ll try to resurrect your post. I had some questions about that Huffington guy.

    Well it’s off to get mauled. The dog gets very exuberant about walks.

    This sounds a little too over the top to be true. Not saying I disagree with the Emperor, but are we sure that this email really came from Mike Boss of Acore and Other Alarmist Organizations? If it’s true, I’m guessing Acore is some tiny outfit mostly composed of some 36 year old faxing press people from his bedroom in his mom’s basement.

    What Things Really Mean

    >You are so full of crap.

    I have realized that I have no argument against you.

    >You have been proven wrong.

    I keep saying that you are wrong.

    >The entire world has proven you wrong.

    I keep saying that you are wrong, and I want you to be wrong a whole bunch.

    >You are the last guy on Earth to get it.

    I don’t know why you don’t want to be a lemming.

    >Take this warning from me, Marlo.

    I’m glad we’re not in the same room, because I would be too scared to say any of this if we were.

    >It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar.

    I am so full of myself that I think I have the power to destroy your career because you don’t agree with my emotional hysteria.

    >If you produce one more editorial against climate change,

    If you persist in giving reasoned arguments with the support of plentiful facts,

    >I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity.

    I will whine and complain even more loudly that you won’t succumb to pressure to be part of the emotional hysteria that I use to feed my ego and build up my self-esteem…and get grants.

    >I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members.

    I will whine and complain to my in-group of other people who use the same emotional hysteria to feed their egos and build up their self-esteem…and get grants.

    >I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America.

    I really can’t think of anything else to say, so I’ll borrow a line from a parody of hippies.

    >Go ahead, guy. Take me on.

    Again, I’m glad we’re not in the same room, because I would be scared to say any of this to your face. And if you actually do try to take me on, I’ll tell my dad.

    By the way, I have seen that type of e-mail sent by scholars to other scholars that have the gall to disagree with their pet theories. I haven’t gotten any–yet–but over the years others have shown me theirs. When I start getting them, I’ll know that I’ve really made it!

    One friend, who is a professor at a different university, has a file specifically for nasty communication from others. (Which is extra funny because he’s the nicest and mildest guy you could imagine.) He only keeps the ones that are really funny. Some of them are total knee-slappers.

    I’d wager Yes, Psychochick. We don’t all use professional writing techniques when dashing off angry e-mails.

    It’s almost as if they believe there’s no way to review/save/share e-mails …

    OT, but I have come to the oxymoronic conclusion that people are both smarter and more stupid than I give them credit for. A foolish consistancy may be the hobgoblin of little minds, but consistancy in and of itself can scarcely be overrated.

    And old-fashioned common sense is neither.

    I hate to seem intellectually feeble, but I don’t understand “And old-fashioned common sense is neither.” neither type of consistency?

    Frankly, I wouldn’t bet my life either way as to legitimacy, although I lean towards hoax. However, I am sitting here with one of the guy’s review papers that I downloaded. It is quite well-written and light-years better than that e-mail. Maybe when he goes into a fury, his writing skills go out the window. However it’s hard for me to reconcile the two pieces. (Obviously, one has been highly edited.)

    PS. It also seems odd to me to be threatening to tell the Harvard alumni. I don’t know if they would really care.

    Perhaps Komrade Eckhart could hire The Imperial Dungeon Game Room™ staff as his editorial staff? We’ve been known to be a bit picky when it comes to grammer, speelink & punkshuayshun. (Although we don’t work cheaply.)

    I’m glad these wine swilling cheese eating surrender monkees weren’t around back during the bad bad days of WWII, Bataan, Corregidor, The aluetians.

    I mean, the Japanese language is really pretty. And they do have a way with poetry, but I’m still glad I didn’t have to grow up having to speak it.

    In the meantime, Good luck to the kid from Cali who has the ambition necessary to realize that there is more to the world then just himself. It takes heat, stress, and pressure to forge steel into something strong. The same is true for man.

    Hi, I’m glad I dug up the thread. Clever as usual, but I just differ on 2 things

    1) he’s not in academics

    2) he used to work for GE, United Power Systems, etc–how much of a Socialist could he be?

    And yet Komrade Eckhart used academics (specifically “the Harvard community“) as his choice of threat. Komrade Eckhart knows that the VAST majority of Asshatemia is utterly Socialist and that they’d, most likely, join in ostracizing Mr. Lewis, if this hadn’t been exposed to the rest of the world.

    he used to work for GE, United Power Systems, etc–how much of a Socialist could he be?

    Many of the world’s (ESPECIALLY the West’s) biggest, most ardent Socialists have worked for (and become very rich) Eeeevil Kapitalist Korporations™ or the used the Eeeevil Kapitalist System™, on their own accord, to become extremely wealthy. (Mickey Moore-on, Ted “Hanoi Jane” Turner, Toad Kennedy, Shillary, Silk Pony, Stretch Puglosi, et al., just to name a few.) Just because one has gained riches from the Eeeevil Kapitalist System™ doesn’t mean that one can’t be a card-carrying Communist Socialist.

    >how much of a Socialist could he be?

    To add just a bit to B.C.’s comments, you have to remember that socialist aren’t against anybody being wealthy, they’re just against the non-elite, normal people being wealthy. The rulers of the socialist machine are special, so they get to be wealthy while the rest of us have the fruits of our labors stolen and given to other people. That way we get to be dependent on the rulers of the socialist machine. How super neato is that?

    You forgot my favorite: The Head Lunatic, Noam Chimpsky, who made a friggin’ fortune working for the “military-industrial complex” that he so loves to rail against now (since it pretty much guarantees leftard money in the bank every time he does so).

    And by “military-industrial complex” I mean “The Pentagon.”

    Yep, it’s true. Look it up. Noam Chimphead made a fortune working for the very Epitome of Eeeevil™.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I’d be annoyed, if it wasn’t for the fact that I find it hysterically funny that leftards are wasting their bong money on books written by one of the Pentagon “Tools” that they so love to despise.

    One of my favorite sayings is “There are some kinds of stupid that you can only learn in grad school.”

    Grad school can help some people become excellent scholars. It can also add polish and efficiency to pre-existing personality disorders. It can take a perfectly normal person with common sense and turn him into a total freakazoid.

    Oh, academia…Woohoo!

    The alumni comment is part of what made me think it was a hoax. Nobody in their right mind (maybe that’s an issue) would threaten to take a scientific dispute to their alumni group. Like they would give a fuck! (I strongly suspect Harvard alumni has a lot of conservative older people.) You’d go to a scientific association or a journal.

    Special Ed
    Thank you–all is clear! (at least about your comment–the rest of the world is still kind of puzzling)

    Tsubaki
    Thank you–I usually understand your explanations really well.

    I will look it up; it’s just too weird. Noam Chomsky worked for the Pentagon? That’s my shocker for the day.

    At least you got the ring back! :) (I think it’s just an image you got off the web–if I thought it were for real, I would be very sympathetic.)

    Oh yes, he has made millions that way, spread over four decades or so.

    He started out at MIT working for the Research Laboratory of Electronics (funny thing to choose for a linguist, don’t you think?), funded almost entirely by the Pentagon and, of course, commanding a salary roughly 30 percent higher than similar positions elsewhere (I guess we found his motivation right there).

    His first book, Syntactic Structures, was written with grants from the U.S. Army Signal Corps, the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Air Research, and Development Command and the Office of Naval Research.

    His next, Aspects of the Theory of Syntax, was made with money from the Joint Services Electronic Program (Army, Navy and Air Force), as well as the U.S. Air Force Electronic Systems Division. Heck, even his wife got in on the act, working on a Dept. of Defense project called “Baseball.”

    To All Readers of this Blog:
    The correspondence between Marlo Lewis and Mike Eckhart should be taken in context. Below for your background information is the original response posted by Mr. Eckhart on July 15th on the ACORE blog.
    Thank you for reading this background material.
    Jim Pierobon & The ACORE Communications Staff
    ———————————————————————————–
    To All:

    The Competitive Enterprise Institute has made public a July 13, 2007 email that I sent to Dr. Marlo Lewis, CEI’s chief analyst on climate change. This private communication to Dr. Lewis is part of a two-year series of communications between us about CEI’s campaign to stop public policy on global warming. The campaign is led by Fred Smith, CEI’s President, and Dr. Lewis.

    I apologize to all in the public who were offended by the email, because it was not intended for public display. You could not be aware of the two-year context of it, nor the choice of words in it – words that were only significant to Dr. Lewis and myself. Now that it is in the public, however, everyone deserves to understand the context.

    Summary:
    I believe that global warming is occurring. The evidence is overwhelming and persuasive both from a statistical as well as anecdotal basis. Last year, the President of the National Wildlife Federation told the story about how a multi-billion duck hunting industry in Arkansas has disappeared – the ducks only fly south to Illinois any more.

    Recently, we have learned about the acidification of the oceans and the attendant accelerated loss of coral and other marine life.

    This week, credible scientific organizations will predict that the North Pole will no longer have ice in the summer, beginning just ten years from now. Glaciers are melting. If the ice bank on Greenland melts, the seas could rise as much as 20 feet. This is serious business, affecting all.

    In my opinion, CEI, and especially Dr. Lewis, has been presenting a false prosecution — a knowingly false prosecution — of the global warming issue, to the detriment of society and the billions of people who will be affected by climate change. This should offend all who believe in integrity and honesty in public affairs.

    Dr. Lewis admitted to me two years ago that he does not necessarily believe that global warming is not happening – he is pursuing it for another reason: his philosophical opposition to big government. He has hijacked our issue to further his philosophical ideas about government. I respectfully object.

    My email to Dr. Lewis was in the context of personal combat and jousting that has been going on in the background — using his own words, as described below, to prod him out this false prosecution of global warming.

    Background:
    The interchange and jousting began two years ago when Dr. Lewis and I were invited to debate the issue on E&E TV, and we had 20 minutes to talk beforehand in the green room. It was a 20-minute monologue by Dr. Lewis.

    He informed us that he is a trained professional debater from Harvard University with a PhD in Philosophy, but that he came out of the experience with the opposite philosophy of most Harvard graduates who believe that government is the solution to society’s problems. He said that he believes that it is excessive government that is the root of most problems in modern society, and that big government must be stopped. He said that one of his life’s goals is to show the Harvard crowd that they are wrong.

    He went on the say that environmentalists are, in his view, “just full of cr*p” and that they are falsely using the threat of climate change to gain control of the power of government. He said that he has a permanent dedication to destroy their careers, hence my use of the same phrases. His method, based on his training in philosophical argument, is not to attack them, but to attack their underlying assumptions, in this case the technical arguments that global warming is happening.

    I asked him, then: “so your argument against global warming is just a tactic in a larger battle you are waging against big government?” He said: “Yes, correct.”
    Dr. Lewis went on to say that he might just as easily make the argument that global warming IS happening, and that, actually, he is a bit concerned about it, but he could not let that sidetrack him from his life’s work to stop big government.

    I then asked if there was any possibility that we could talk him into joining the climate change movement and take the lead on developing non-government solutions, since he is against government solutions. He said that this was an intriguing idea, but, no, he couldn’t do it. He said that his job is not to be a consultant on solutions; his mission is to stop big government.

    We were called into the studio and I concluded by saying that I had never met such a brilliant mind that was, in my opinion, so off track on intellectual honesty, and asked if he thought it would consider it fair play if I tried to stop him as much as he is trying to stop us. He said: “fair is fair” and we went into the televised debate.
    A member of my staff was with us in the Green Room. You will see Dr. Lewis’ own words in my July 13 email.

    Subsequent Communications:
    Since that first event, Dr. Lewis and Fred Smith and I have discussed on several occasions the honesty or dishonesty of hijacking the global warming issue to further their philosophy about making government smaller. I confronted Fred Smith on this in May 2006. There have been several exchanges.

    For example:
    On September 22, 2006, Dr. Lewis sent a campaign email saying: “I attach for your reading pleasure the latest version of my Skeptic’s Guide to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.”
    In reply, on September 25, I wrote to Fred Smith and Marlo Lewis: “I am writing to say that I am very unhappy to see this continuing false analysis coming out of CEI, seeking to refute the issue of global warming. What concerns me is that you are credible and persuasive, hence your voice and that of CEI are having the effect of delaying a US response to the crisis. The only explanation that I can see is that you are doing this because you are paid by ExxonMobil and other clients to do so. I find this outrageous, that my children will have a lesser life because you are being paid by oil companies to spread a false story.”

    On September 26, Dr. Lewis wrote back to me: “Talk about an inconvenient truth! How inconvenient for some people that fossil fuels played an indispensable role in ending slavery and serfdom, extending human lifespan, etc.”

    This was clearly going no where, and it rested for a while.

    Turning the Corner on the Acceptance of Global Warming
    Coincidently, however, I was informed that ExxonMobil ended its many years of funding CEI’s anti-climate campaign the following month, at the time of a speech by ExxonMobil’s CEO Rex W. Tillerson to the Boston CEO Club on November 30, 2006, in which he said:
    “While the scientific community continues this study, we should pursue public policies that start gradually and learn along the way with full recognition of the economic consequences of certain actions and we should bring all countries into the effort…We should start on a path to reduce the likelihood of the worst outcomes… and understand the context of managing carbon emissions among other developing world priorities, such as economic development, poverty eradication and public health. Consistent with this approach, we should take steps now to reduce emissions in effective and meaningful ways.”

    The most conservative companies in the oil industry are turning the corner on the global warming issue in a thoughtful and honest way. We also are seeing the electric utility industry study the matter carefully, recognizing that the future is a carbon-constrained world and they must find practical ways of working in it. And many serious people from industry, finance, the professions, academia, commerce, the nonprofit sector and government have looked at this and concluded that we as a society must take action now, for the sake of society as we know it, and for the sake of the generations who come after us.

    The Issue Today
    In the face of this came another analysis by Dr. Lewis this past week on July 12, undermining the inconvenient and now compelling truth about global warming, and I said: ‘enough is enough.” I challenged Dr. Lewis using his own words from that Green Room conversation two years ago, and challenged him to take me on, to resolve this issue. I have challenged him to debate this out, but he refuses, instead leaking my jousting email to him.

    As to the email, there can be no excuse for it in the public’s eye, or out of the context of years of communications in the background. I apologize to all who have read it.
    To CEI, however, there can be no apology. Quite the opposite. It is time to end CEI’s disingenuous undermining of worldwide concern about global warming. To resolve this, I again challenge Dr. Lewis to a series of personal debates on global warming that would go on for a month, with daily exchanges. There would be a running public vote. We would agree to accept the vote of the American people on the debate.

    We must begin a nonpartisan, bi-partisan, and universal move forward to manage carbon in society and implement solutions in the areas of energy efficiency, renewable energy, other non/low-carbon energy, and the management of oceans, biodiversity and forestation.

    I believe that a cleaner world will be a more productive world with more security, longer lives, broader equity, more peace, more prosperity, and greater freedom than the status quo can possibly offer. It will not be big government delivering a solution, but the entire complex of government, the private sector and civil society adapting to a better path.
    I believe that an open debate on these issues will reveal the truth of the matter. I call Dr. Lewis out of his analytic hideaway at CEI.

    I will be happy to debate this out with Dr. Lewis and seek an answer, and again apologize to everyone for having the private email communication leaked to the press, distracting everyone from the serious matters at hand.

    Misha, it’s good that you would make the effort to post this reply here, just showing again that you (and other bloggers I read every day) have far more integrity than the MSM.

    That said, Eckhart is still an idiot for writing the previous email the way he did. And now we see that he accused Lewis of being paid by the oil companies, with no evidence other than, “Well, you continue to disagree with my obviously true position, therefore you must be conspiring with the evil oil barons.”
