Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, Aug. 21st 2009
This week British kids wear eco-uniforms, polar bears refuse to drown and greens celebrate their efforts to make our lights go out.
It’s high summer so crank up the air conditioner and open a window to fight global warming as you dive into the fascinating depths of the weekly round-up.
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
It’s summertime, so Al has been pretty quiet in the past week, but he did find some time to open up a new Repower Tennessee office. Considering the size of his own power bill, it’s likely that the state needs repowering.
The Goreacle and his global warming acolytes have been rudely shoved to the back of the news cycle by the current bunfight over health care reform, but Al knows how to grab a headline. He floated the idea of holding his own townhall meetings to promote his ‘climate crisis’.
Al supports the push toward a new ‘.eco’ domain, but that effort has turned messy and green groups are fighting each other for the right to sell the names. It’s almost as if this had something to do with profit rather than the more altruistic goal of saving the planet. Surely not?
One lefty writer called Leonard Pitts used a quote from Al Gore as a way to illustrate that opponents of health care are using scaremongering tactics to frighten people away from reform. I guess he missed this less convenient quote from Al:
“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are.”
If you’re confused, remember that using scaremongering tactics to promote the global warming hoax is approved, but use of the same to oppose health care reform is verboten. Clear enough?
Canuckian Hippie David Suzuki has decided he’s suddenly interested in the state of the Canadian mining industry, but only because some firms are willing to say publicly that they ‘believe’ global warming is affecting them. Three short years ago, miners were the climate enemy, but Suzuki’s such an alarmist that he’ll cozy up to anyone that might have a buck for him.
Part Two: AGW Scaremongers
In Europe, manufacturers are worried that science has been labeled a ‘force of evil’ by eco-religion nutjobs, and that has made the transition of research to innovation slower and more expensive. Greens the new Luddites, but with less fun.
French wine makers whine that Scotland might become the future of wine. For once, I have to agree with the French, Scotland is no place for wine to be made. One word: haggis.
While we’re talking about the French, Senator John Kerry decided (incorrectly) that global warming is a matter of national security. Unfortunately for Kerry the expression ‘man-caused disasters‘ is already taken.
