If you haven't heard, "global warming" has been abruptly canceled. Details follow.
But first I want to talk about Dox. Sometime back we really got into it about "global warming." He's totally bought it, and he even started a group devoted to the worship of it. I say 'worship" because how better to describe something you have to take on faith because there is nothing that is reliable that supports it? And like any religion, that which you take on faith often requires irrational defense, not that Dox intends to be irrational, he just is because he doesn't know any better.
And that was never more apparent that yesterday.
But I'm going to delay explaining that as well and give you a little background frst. See, I joined Dox's group because I thought he wanted to hear both sides, and during our major disagreement, like Timothy, but not anywhere near as bad as that jackass, Dox blocked me from his further participation in his group.
To his credit, Dox immediately thought better of it and did the right thing. I, in turn, told him that I would no longer be participating because he had the right to conduct his pro-warming group any way he wanted, and I would always be a thorn in his side… because he was simply wrong.
So we parted our warming ways and remained on good terms. Dox and I shared similar views on politics, so it wasn't like he was Snowy or anything.
It was only relatively recently that I re-added him to my neighborhood because we were both McCain backers and Palin backers, and I felt that he'd probably matured, so I wanted to read what he had to say. All went reasonably well until yesterday when he posted the single stupidest entry about "global warming" that I've ever seen – to wit:
(approximate) "If the sun causes global warming, then why worry about what man puts in the atmosphere?"
I was going to respond, but you know how some things are just so idiotic that by responding, you elevate them? Therefore, I did the next best thing – I de-neighborized Dox.
When I venture out, I expect to read intelligent, coherent commentary. Dox's opening question was so illogical and disjointed that it showed he's learned nothing. Thus I fully expect John to agree with him. And by the way, Dox, if you're reading this, please feel free to respond here – and expect the worst.
Now about what precipitated all this…
I wasn't going to say anything about Dox. What's the point? but then Drudge posted something this afternoon that made Dox relevant. It turns out that the 'warmest October on record"… isn't. In fact, it's so far from the warmest that about two thirds of the Octobers since they've been keeping records were warmer.
And that's not the half of it. Bloggers uncovered the fraud that Jimmy Hansen was trying to put over on the world, and when they did, Hansen, like Dems in Minnesota, suddenly found new stuff in his trunk to support his case.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jimmy, he heads NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), he's Al Gore's surrogate, and he's totally bought and paid for by George Soros. And his agency is one of the primary ones whose data the UN relied on for their fraudulent climate report. GISS is always putting out the warmest data of all of the four agencies the UN uses.
So it's even more significant that not only was Jimmy wrong about October, but he's admitted that it's not even NASA's own data - he uses (cherry-picks) unverified data from other sources to make his claims. That's compounding the felony – that Dox believes in.
So to be clear, now there's not only no reliable data to support "global warming," but what these disciples had relied on is a FRAUD! Far worse than nothing at all, wouldn't you say?
When I first read that October was supposedly the worst on record, I was aware of the record lows and snowfalls that had been reported during the month, and so I did what I do about all warming stories now, I don't read them. I'm looking for truth, and "global warming" stories are more biased than the media was for Obama. What I mean by that is simply that your own common sense will tell you otherwise when you read one.
But don't think "global warming" is going away. That's because it never has to. People like Dox still believe it despite this latest debunking, and despite the fact that they now have far less data than they did yesterday. They will still make their claims as usual. They will still be as irrational as they have been. That's because they're 'scientists" – they're peer reviewed.
And by the way, this fraud was disclosed by a British paper. Wanna bet you never see it from AP?
