The only consensus is in the minds of the morons that espouse global warming is man made, or that it even exists in anything other than a natural occurrence within the earth’s atmosphere.

Anyone notice that the global warming morons have gotten less boisterous in their routine?

Climate Consensus? What Climate Consensus?
By Peter C Glover

The myths of popular science have a nasty habit of running ahead of the real story by a decade or two. They are difficult to dislodge. It has always been thus. Take the myth that global warming (GW) is today a feature of current global climate activity. Whatever the reason for it, GW hasn’t been happening for 16 years – and not a single computer model predicted it. Then there is the breaking news that the global sea ice area is above normal – and that in the midst of the Antarctic summer. Not exactly been mainstream news has it? But then, as both stories run counter to the prevailing consensus and popular myth, that’s not surprising.

There’s the myth peddled by David Attenborough that polar bears are threatened by extinction when it turns out they are actually thriving; along with stories that that ‘renewable’ energy is an economically viable energy-generating concept; that windmills can provide reliable, regular and cost-effective power demanded by modern grids and energy users; that electric cars make sense at all, given they can only get you from London to Oxford before their batteries expire requiring 16 hours re-charging, and … well, you get the picture. The nexus between green myth and a pro-alarmist mass media committed to falling for, and publicizing, them is plain enough. Which brings us to the big daddy in our age: the myth of still attempting to proclaim a ‘science consensus’ when it comes to anthropogenic global warming (AGW).

Back in the 90s I was an early ‘heretic’ on global warming. For me the facts and data just didn’t add up. But having spent years investigating the claims of huckster false prophets in the church for duping the gullible it increasingly became clear that today’s false prophets have donned white coats, exchanged crystal balls for computer modelling and take the public ‘shilling’ to do planet-saving research. But their chief message was the same: the end-is-nigh – unless you listen to me and do what I tell you. Science-writer Michael Crichton was the first to sum up this paradigm shift to wholesale faith in an environmental Grand Narrative that set the AGW prophetic belief-system rolling.

Time for another Climategate round up.

It looks like there is another scam afoot to take some of the pressure off of the Climategate mess. Looks like it will just add fuel to the fire. Pun intended.

Prominent climate scientists affiliated with the U.S. National Academies of Science have been planning a public campaign to paper over the damaged reputation of global warming alarmism, according to recently disclosed e-mail messages.  Their scheme would involve officials at the National Academies and other professional associations producing studies to endorse the researchers’ pre-existing assumptions and create confusion about the revelations of the rapidly expanding “Climategate” scandal.

The e-mails were first reported in a front-page story by Stephen Dinan in the Washington Times today. The Competitive Enterprise Institute has independently obtained copies of the e-mails and has posted them at


Gallup’s annual update of Americans’ attitudes on things environmental found that 48% of Americans believe the seriousness of global warming is generally exaggerated, up from 41% in 2009, and 31% in 1997, when Gallup first posed the question.

Similarly, the percentage of those who believe global warming is going to affect them or their way of life in their lifetimes has dropped from 40% in 2008 to 32% today.


Sen. Joe Lieberman hides the tax now…

Kerry-Graham-Lieberman: The Tax Formerly Known As Cap-and-Trade
by Marlo Lewis

My colleague Julie Walsh flags a funny statement by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), quoted earlier this week (Mar. 9) in Greenwire (subscription required). Although Lieberman, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) want to include cap-and-trade in their draft climate and energy legislation, they are reluctant to use the term.

Greenwire reports:

Lieberman also downplayed the use of the term “cap and trade” when it comes to limiting emissions, even though that is generally the plan with their bill. “We don’t use that term anymore,” he said. “We’ll have pollution reduction targets. Remember the Artist Previously Known as Prince?”


Utah Legislature going at it on climate debate

Climate Debate in Halls of Utah Legislature
by Paul Chesser, Heartland Institute Correspondent

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a state legislator go toe-to-toe on the climate change issue with an alarmist, but the Fox News affiliate in Salt Lake City caught that very thing on camera this week. On Wednesday after a student-led global warming rally at the legislature, State Rep. Mike Noel, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, found himself in the same room with former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson. Here’s the full discussion, in which the skeptic Noel is surrounded by environoiacs, including one who kept trying to butt in.


The Climategaters duke it out with the big boys…

Those Climate Pugilists
By Paul Chesser

Pity the poor Climategaters. The staid were played. Gentlepersons were violated. And the billion-dollar global warming science complex can’t compete with spunky skeptics.

Those are some of the complaints registered in newly disclosed emails among members of the National Academy of Sciences, whose messages were mysteriously made public last week via the Washington Times. Some call it Climategate II; Whinergate is more apropos.


Time to give up on the global warming religion…

WeatherAction offers to fill the gap as Met Office admits failure of seasonal forecasts; and calls on Met Office and politicians to give up Global Warming ‘Religion’ long range weather & climate forecasters today (5 March) said it was good news the Met Office now admits they were ‘also-rans’ in the long range forecasting stakes and offered to fill the forecasting gap in the national interest.

“This is a serious matter, not a game, the Met office surrender is important because their misleading failed forecasts have cased unnecessary suffering and loss of life and would continue to do so if not terminated. The cold icy winter caused huge economic loss made worse by the UK and Europe running out of road salt after the Met Office’s mild winter prognosis – in which some also died in road accidents as a consequence”, said Piers

Inhofe to wants to investigate the Climategate fraud. It probably won’t get out of committee, but, it will definitely raise a few hackles among the idiots that perpetrated this massive fraud.

Climategate Meets the Law: Senator Inhofe To Ask for DOJ Investigation
Posted By Charlie Martin

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) today asked the Obama administration to investigate what he called “the greatest scientific scandal of our generation” — the actions of climate scientists revealed by the Climategate Files, and the subsequent admissions by the editors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).

Senator Inhofe also called for former Vice President Al Gore to be called back to the Senate to testify.

“In [Gore’s] science fiction movie, every assertion has been rebutted,” Inhofe said. He believes Vice President Gore should defend himself and his movie before Congress.

Just prior to a hearing at 10:00 a.m. EST, Senator Inhofe released a minority staff report from the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee [1], of which he is ranking member. Senator Inhofe is asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether there has been research misconduct or criminal actions by the scientists involved, including Dr. Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University and Dr. James Hansen of Columbia University and the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science.


What a friggin’ pussy.

Need a gun? I’ll loan you mine. Need some good pills? I have some good ones that if you take them all with your favorite liquor, should do the trick.

Need a rope? I’ll let you have one of mine.

Douche bag. Piss off. You lying piece of shit. Looking for sympathy now? Suck my ass. Wimp.

I thought of killing myself, says climate scandal professor Phil Jones
Richard Girling

THE scientist at the centre of the “climategate” email scandal has revealed that he was so traumatized by the global backlash against him that he contemplated suicide.

Professor Phil Jones said in an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times that he had thought about killing himself “several times”. He acknowledged similarities to Dr David Kelly, the scientist who committed suicide after being exposed as the source for a BBC report that alleged the government had “sexed up” evidence to justify the invasion of Iraq.


More smack down on the global warming scam. This just keeps getting better. It’s a long piece with a lot of geek talk, but if you want to know the truth, learn the speak and slap the ignorant masses upside the head with the facts…

This is even bigger than the crap that was dug up in the UK!

Climategate: CRU Was But the Tip of the Iceberg
By Marc Sheppard

Not surprisingly, the blatant corruption exposed at Britain’s premiere climate institute was not contained within the nation’s borders. Just months after the Climategate scandal broke, a new study has uncovered compelling evidence that our government’s principal climate centers have also been manipulating worldwide temperature data in order to fraudulently advance the global warming political agenda.
Not only does the preliminary report [PDF] indict a broader network of conspirators, but it also challenges the very mechanism by which global temperatures are measured, published, and historically ranked.


Yeah, that part about melting glaciers in the next 20 years, well we sorta, kinda, LIED, er, made an error in our calculations.

Maybe you morons should return the Nobel Idiot Prize, then again, you’re a bunch of idiots, just keep that worthless token of liberal adulation.

Douche bags.

IPCC: “Our bad! Global warming not about to melt Himalayas.
By Michael Fumento

“The glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, a large number of them may disappear by 2035 because of climate change.” Such was the lede of one [1] of countless articles about how 1.3 billion Asians were in imminent danger of first flooding and then drought. And that’s not to mention the certain extinction of the abominable snowman.


And another inconvenient truth for Al Gorlioni.

No Rise of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Fraction in Past 160 Years, New Research Finds

ScienceDaily (Dec. 31, 2009) — Most of the carbon dioxide emitted by human activity does not remain in the atmosphere, but is instead absorbed by the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. In fact, only about 45 percent of emitted carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere.


In contradiction to some recent studies, he finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.

AGW Sciencytist: You are Stupid. [krakatoa]

Climate Depot’s Mark Morano continues to do amazing work on the Climate Gate scandal.

He has a tremendous grasp of the relevant studies, players & data, and demonstrates his mastery of the topic and of public relations in the following debate (under the fold) he has with Professor Matt Maslin, one of the Climate specialists who has been a primary driver of AGW alarmism in Europe.

This is terrific stuff, and you should check out Morano’s transcript which includes links to all the points he made.
