The Global Warming Hoax: Your Weekly Round-Up for January 8, 2009
Welcome everyone to the latest installment of the global warming hoax weekly round-up. As you may or may not know, The Daily Bayonet is still hunkered down with family in Parts Unknown, Canada, and I get the privilege of filling in for him once again. So kick back, grab a cold one and enjoy this weekâ€™s edition.
While Al Gore has been quieter-than-usual now that temperatures are falling, alarmists are still on the hunt for blood. After computer scientist Tim Lambert tried to belittle skepticsâ€™ claims about global warming, Tom Nelson found Joanne Novaâ€™s smackdown of Tim Lambertâ€™s column. Good catch and a great read.
While the ruling Labor Party in Australia is trying to implement an expensive emissions trading scheme, conservative leader Barnaby Joyce denounced the move and said skeptics were like â€œwitch[es] to burnâ€ and considered heretics for daring to question climate change. Good catch from Tom over at Climate Change Fraud.
The Huffington Post, in all their liberal wisdom, posted an article skeptical of global warming. Yes, the HuffPo. Donâ€™t worry, though. It didnâ€™t get very far and was buried beneath older posts that carried the torch for climate change.
California is working on legislation to ensure that flat-screen televisions manufactured have very high energy efficiencies. Didnâ€™t I just report a couple of months back that the manufacture of LCD and plasma televisions contribute to global warming? Anyway, the measure is expected to raise the cost of the televisions. Consider it an indirect carbon tax.
Last Friday was the sixth day of the worst cold snap to hit the interior of Alaska in years. Weâ€™re talking 60 below zero, folks. As of today, planes have been grounded, cars wonâ€™t start and food and fuel supplies are dwindling.
Are you ready for some football talk? Learn why the Greens are back on offense.
As if the cold temperatures and the snow werenâ€™t such a big deal according to the global warming zealots, now the sea ice is back to 1979 levels. I guess thatâ€™s caused by global warming, too.
If you want to drive on congested streets in San Francisco, youâ€™d better be ready to pony up a driving fee. Oh, consider that another indirect carbon tax.
Global warming is endangering bears.
Plan 9 from AGW. Sounds like a Bill Cosby movie. Oh, that was Leonard Part 6.
Chinaâ€™s going to increase coal production by 30% by 2015. Maybe Gore should move over there and try to tell the government theyâ€™re doing it wrong.
Kyoto, A Perspective: Part 5 is online now.
Should we really redesign our economy based on flawed computer climate models?
Recess in Fairbanks, Alaska cancelled because it was 42 degrees below zero.
Whereâ€™s the link? No global warming/hurricane intensity connection.
Find out what the global warming fear-mongerers wonâ€™t tell you.
Last, but certainly not least, the monthly AIT Index is out.
Since I donâ€™t present a global warming hottie like The Daily Bayonet, Iâ€™m going to pay-it-forward like many did for me when I first started this blog. Therefore, I give you my up-and-coming global warming skeptic site of the week, Green is the New Red. Maybe he/she will put up some additional posts and help us skewer the clueless.
Thatâ€™s it, folks. I hope you have a wonderful week!
