I wrote this yesterday, and I note that Rush Limbaugh is expressing similar sentiments right now.
And it's different from my usual because what I'm angry about is REALLY BIG. And the stinking American press isn't even reporting it.
I'm talking about the cataclysmic collapse of "climate change," nee: "global warming." If you haven't heard, "global warming" is in its death throes, but you wouldn't know it unless you're somehow steered to British newspapers where it's big news across the board.
And here's what those papers are saying – that scientists have "discovered" that the climate might not be changing much at all.
"The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change," said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.
Even that isn't good enough for me because it retains the possibility that climate is still changing, and implication is that it's due to something YOU do. So let's be clear. the climate IS changing – all day, everyday. Next Valentine's day might bear no resemblance to this past one climactically speaking… not to mention romantically speaking.
When I started here in 2006, I made a conscious decision that, like Al Gore, I would treat "global warming" as unequivocal. The difference between Me and The Fatman though is that I categorically said it was a fraud – in which many were engaged and many more were willing dupes, and on Vox, I'm referring to Dox, John, the Queen Of Frontal Nudity, and a number of lesser morons. I can't tell you how many others took these fools seriously, but they were virtual Little Gores. Although I'd bet that in real life, John isn't any smaller than Al himself, if you get my drift?!?
What was really disgusting was how these jerks would drone on and offer nothing in the way of evidence, their mantras being "models," "consensus," and "peer review." For the record, it was then and it is now the case that the "models" are worthless, "consensus," has no place in science, and "peer review" shouldn't either. Because, as I argued back when, peer review is merely a group of people with similar interests giving their OK not to the fact that something has been proven, but that it all makes sense to them.
And that's nothing to base a program on that would, if implemented, RUIN YOUR LIVES!
So to be clear, people right here on Vox were, and probably still are, perfectly willing to accept the words written in their Bible, the IPCC report, and embrace the words of people, "scientists," who owe their existence to government subsidies, and to governments themselves whose real interest is in controlling your life.
It's that simple. Dox and John were unwilling to consider the FACT that they were wrong, and this despite the FACT that the "evidence" didn't add up. In fact, they had none whatsoever, and that's not just an off-the-cuff comment, the "experts" are now admitting it.
It's fine with me when eccentrics say wild and funny things – until what they say affects me directly and negatively. I mean, fools are often colorful and amusing, but when there's enough of them, and they know how to vote, and they get in positions of power, they can become criminally dangerous, and that's even if they don't realize it themselves.
That's where we almost were – and frankly, the disclosures of fraud and cover-up haven't pulled us back from the brink nearly far enough. Moreover, if it were up to the American media, we'd still be marching merrily toward the edge of the cliff.
Back when the warmalarmists had everything going their way, I used to warn people not to use episodes of cold weather in their attempts to discredit the nuts and crooks. Make THEM prove their case beyond a shadow of a doubt. Because they couldn't do it.
Here's an example of how bad it was….
In one of his many rambling and absurd commentaries, Dox said, as I recall, that the "chance" of global warming was 30%. No doubt he got that percentage from some idiot "scientist" he admired. So what did Dox ask? He asked that if there was that much chance of rain, would you take an umbrella? Now I wouldn't then (and I sure won't now) begin to tell you, much less him, what was wrong with his question/argument, I'll just say that it was disturbingly stupid, and it was doubly so because Dox fancied himself a scientist.
I'm proud of the fact that I refused to engage in attempts to refute such absurdities, and I'm even more proud that I (you) didn't even need to know much about "the science" of "global warming" to realize what a scam it was. I simply saw it as my duty to scream "FRAUD" and take whatever criticism might follow because, well, there was far less than a 30% chance that I was wrong, and a 99% chance they were.
Now we know that, in addition to the uncovered fraud, the temperature stations are completely unreliable (as we already knew), as are the models. and we know that the so-called records are all but non-existent, and that as a result of such unscientific "science," we no longer trust scientists to be a reliable purveyor of truth. As with Swine Flu, when they warn, we yawn. And that, of course, will result in people needlessly dying someday because these pigs, scum, and slime were merely cheating their way to prominence and favors.
Of course the Vox locals weren't doing that, they were simply too stupid to know they were the facilitators of evil.
