Quote by Timothy Wirth, U.S./UN functionary, former elected Democrat:
We ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of
global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic policy and environmental policy.

Re: Quote from Monika Kopacz, atmospheric scientist

Quote from Monika Kopacz, atmospheric scientist: "It is no secret that
a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate
models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes
(e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only
sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get
politicians and readers attention. So, yes, climate scientists
might exaggerate, but in today s world, this is the only way to assure
any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the
scientific uncertainty."

No matter if the science is all phoney, there are collateral
environmental benefits…. climate change [provides] the greatest
chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.

matter. We’re not basing our recommendations [for reductions in carbon

Now We Know .

October 27 2009

It seems an exaggeration to me, but I do not doubt
that too many politicians in Britain were blinded
by ideology to the tensions they would unleash
(and not just benefits they would gain) by
unleashing so a radical change to their nation’s
ethnic and cultural mix:

"Labour threw open Britain’s borders to mass
immigration to help socially engineer a "truly
multicultural" country, a former Government
adviser has revealed. "

"The huge increases in migrants over the last
decade were partly due to a politically motivated
attempt by ministers to radically change the
country and "rub the Right’s nose in diversity",
according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to
Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett. "

"He said Labour’s relaxation of controls was a
deliberate plan to "open up the UK to mass
migration" but that ministers were nervous and
reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear
it would alienate its "core working class vote". "

Melanie Phillips:

"So now the cat is well and truly out of the bag.
For years, as the number of immigrants to Britain
shot up apparently uncontrollably, the question
was how exactly this had happened. Was it through
a fit of absent-mindedness or gross incompetence?
Or was it not inadvertent at all, but deliberate?
"

"The latter explanation seemed just too
outrageous. After all, a deliberate policy of mass
immigration would have amounted to nothing less
than an attempt to change the very make-up of this
country without telling the electorate. "

"There could not have been a more grave abuse of
the entire democratic process. Now, however, we
learn that this is exactly what did happen. "

"Some 2.3million migrants have been added to the
population since 2001. Since 1997, the number of
work permits has quadrupled to 120,000 a year.
Unless policies change, over the next 25 years
some seven million more will be added to Britain’s
population, a rate of growth three times as fast
as took place in the Eighties."

Green Is Bad

October 26 2009

Another sign that the most costly scientific
delusion in history is losing public support:

"Susan Butler, the Macquarie Dictionary editor,
said the environmental concerns had joined the
internet and the global financial crisis this
edition as great generators of words. ”But it’s
not all positive for the environment. ‘Greenie”
in its early stages had positive and negative
connotations . these days ‘greenie’ has mostly
negative connotations,” she said. "

Can’t imagine why.

Maybe this has something to do with it:

"Parents have accused early childhood centres of
"greenwashing" their children by burdening them
with the responsibility of saving the world. "

"Tots as young as three have sent letters to Kevin
Rudd about their passion for green living and
asked companies to reduce their packaging . "

"But experts have called for caution in teaching
children about climate change because of the
potential for fear, anxiety, frustration, anger
and despair at catastrophic events. "

They’ve been tormenting children for years.

Over nothing.

This Whacko Should Really Get Out Of The Prediction Business!

Adelaide Doomed All Over Again

October 27 2009

Surely Alarmist of the Year Tim Flannery should
have learned to get out of the prediction
business?

2007:

"Environmental researcher Tim Flannery has warned
that Brisbane and Adelaide – home to a combined
total of three million people – could run out of
water by year’s end. "

2008:

"The water problem is so severe for Adelaide that
it may run out of water by early 2009. "

2009:

"Our fifth-largest city, Adelaide, may be out of
drinking water next year. "

Let’s put money on it this time.

Your call, Flannery.

Any amount.
