The Global Warming Myth: Your Week-in-Review for January 2, 2009
Welcome to the Global Warming Myth round-up, the first for 2009. Iâ€™m going to go ahead and assume that our friend The Daily Bayonet is still enjoying time with his visiting family, so Iâ€™ve put together the best-of-the-best for this weekâ€™s review.
Send your best wishes over to Klockarman, who broke his arm earlier this week. I hear heâ€™s going to hunt and peck out blog posts with five fingers and an elbow now. Have a speedy recovery!
Now, on with the review:
- Composting saves the planet, right? Wrong. The worms used in compost heaps emit a greenhouse gas far more powerful that carbon dioxide. Letâ€™s all just go back to burning our trash, you know, like we did back in the â€˜70s.
- On a tip from Tom Nelson: Washington state will have to close over a dozen state parks due to budget constraints, but as $25 million to spend on solar panels for prisons.
- Thomas over at Climate Change Fraud tells us why subsidizing nations like India, China and Brazil to cut greenhouse gas emissions is delusional.
- Christopher Booker delivers the eulogy for global warming. So many climate change predictions in 2008. So many of them failed.
- Heliogenic Climate Change found out that Britain only has one year left to prevent dormice and house sparrows from reaching a point of terminal decline. Letâ€™s check up on them this time next year.
- That pesky sea ice just wonâ€™t vanish like the plans say it should. Antarctic ice greater in November 2008 than in 1979. Letâ€™s just call that a win for the good guys.
- Did you see this video thatâ€™s been on the front page all week? CNN Meteorologist exposes the global warming myth on television.
- The planet is slowing down, and some are blaming it on all that pesky carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases stuck in the atmosphere. We had to add a leap second this year, but the question has to be asked: how much of that can be blamed on the SUV?
- Plan on saving money by purchasing that fuel-efficient or hybrid vehicle. You wonâ€™t.
- Japanâ€™s government is so desperate to cut their greenhouse emissions that theyâ€™re paying their citizens loads to install them.
- Check out the Kyoto Files, part four for this week. Tony continues to take us through the baloney that is the Kyoto Protocol.
- Physicists are bringing some common sense to the global warming debate.
- Got a green thumb? Are you green with envy? Can you spell green? You may be entitled to some of Obamaâ€™s stimulus package.
- Bigger government in the Philippines as Manila votes to create a climate change body.
- James Hansen is crying fowl over the NOAA muzzling scientists. But donâ€™t the global alarmists do the same to dissenting opinion?
- Oh those big, bad oil companies. Theyâ€™re part of the conspiracy, you see. They hate giving up profits so much that they…wait, theyâ€™re creating biofuels for jets now? Does this mean we can get back on the big oil payroll, alarmists?
- Dr. Roy Spencer has launched his own blog. Welcome to the blogosphere, Dr. Spencer!
- Klockarman discovers that alarmists donâ€™t want The Oregonian to print letters to the editor from skeptics. Skeptics are too snarky, and clever, you see.
- Natural disasters killed over 220,000 in 2008. A good third of them from earthquakes, which arenâ€™t even caused by global warming…yet.
- Want a history lesson on temperature? Look at what has happened in the last 25 years
- Do you hate koalas and polar bears? Good. Because if you question this, you hate them.
- James Hansen has asked the Obamaâ€™s to redistribute wealth in America. Can we start with him?
.In lieu of a global warming hottie of the week, I leave you with a global warming skeptic site of the week: A Dog Named Kyoto
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
