Genius Obama can't talk his way out of this

They elected a symbol, when they needed a president.

None So Blind As The ABC!

The joke that is the global warming scam.

December 13 2009

The ABC reports that Canada’s Inuit need our help to cope with the warming
they see daily:

"Inuit communities need funds to adapt to climate change in the Arctic,
including measures to build communal deep freezers to store game, an Inuit
leader said on Friday. The Inuit Circumpolar Council’s (ICC) Violet Ford
says she sees climate changes "on a daily basis"."

The ABC four hours later reports that Canadians need help to cope with the
freezing they see today:

"People in the north-central part of the Canadian province of Ontario are
digging out after one of the worst snow storms on record."

A Sterling Defence. NOT

!

December 14 2009

The ABC’s chief science reporter, Robyn "100 metres" Williams, writes nearly
1000 words to dismiss the Climategate emails as a storm in a teacup.

Of all those words, these are all you need read:

"So what do the emails reveal? I hesitate to pronounce. I haven’t read
 them."

We're Winning!

December 14 2009

We’re up by 82 per cent:

"Australia’s annual greenhouse gas emissions have soared by more than
four-fifths since 1990 – far exceeding the 8 per cent permitted by the Kyoto
Protocol. "

This is a measure of progress.

We’re winning.

And if any local warmers want to cry about it, they should ask themselves a
few questions first, including:

Have I had any children since 1990?

Have I flown anywhere?

Do I own nice televisions and computers that I didn’t own in 1990?

How much better is the car I drive?

And so on, until the link between emissions and quality of life becomes
evident.

Unlimited Greenie Hypocrisy

December 14 2009

If you’re a high-profile billionaire activist against climate change, what
would be your next logical step?

Why, running a Formula One team, of course:

"The Virgin brand’s 2010 Formula One project will be officially unveiled
next week. "

"Virgin Racing, one of four new teams set to join the grid next season, will
be launched at an event in London on Tuesday. "

"Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson, who last season sponsored title winners
Brawn, and the Virgin Racing management team are all expected to be in
attendance. "

It's A Religion!

13 Dec 2009

It’s a religion, stealing from another religion:

"US supporters of a strong climate deal in Copenhagen on Saturday lit
candles and erected a mock Noah’s Ark in Washington, warning leaders that
the planet faced a crisis of biblical proportions. "

ROTFLMAO

December 13 2009

Awesome protest action in Wisconsin:

"About 40 Racine youths braved the cold weather Saturday night in an effort
to raise awareness about climate change ".

"The students held candles and posters, and waved to passing cars. "

Maybe they were trying to warn them:

"Some Wisconsin communities that have installed high efficiency traffic
lights are discovering the energy-saving bulbs are a hazard in a snow storm.
"

"City officials say the LED lights use less electricity and don’t give off
enough heat to melt ice or snow. So when the snow falls and the wind blows,
the traffic lights are obscured. "

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA …

So, these two "scientists" walk in to a climate conference .

Manmade Warming In Antarctica!

We’re all dooooomed!

December 14 2009

How reliable is any of the weather data used by the IPCC to claim we warmed
until 2001?

We’ve seen bizarre adjustments made to raw data to create warming trends in
Darwin and Orland, for instance.

Now Anthony Watts discovers that the one station used by a supplier of IPCC
data to measure warming in the Antarctic is sited not just in the small part
of the continent that’s warming, but in a settlement that’s boomed with new
sources of "urban"-type heat, from an air strip and a hanger to a cluster of
toasty new buildings.

Here is that place, the Rothera research centre:

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/12/13/frigid-folly-uhi-siting-issues-…

Notice that the station is on the Antarctic peninsula, I’ve always said that
using stations here to represent trends on the main body of the Antarctic
continent is plain wrong, becuase the peninsula is in a different climate
zone.

From the aerial and ground photos we can determine that:

1.Rothera has seen land use change due to the infill for the runway and
service areas.

2.The albedo around the station has changed, due to the infill with that
darker local materials.

3.Rothera has seen growth in buildings, and presumably population since
1976.

4.Rothera’s aviation fuel tanks seen above and here plus the new hanger
indicate an increase in aviation traffic has likely been seen since 1976.

5.There’s apparently pressure from the tourist trade also, enough that BAS
has made the: Rothera Station_visitor_guidelines.

How many ships and planes that now visit have anything to do with primary
research?

How much extra infrastructure was created to handle tourist traffic?

Does This Hypocritical Whacko Have No Shame?

Do as I say .

December 14 2009

What World Vision Australia head Tim Costello preaches:

"AS we turn up the earth’s thermostat by pumping out ever increasing amounts
of climate change pollution, its effects will be felt most harshly by those
who are most vulnerable: the poor, elderly, young children and the sick. Not
only do we have a moral to protect this earth, but we also have a duty to
take action."

What he actually does:

What are you driving now?

"I drive a Mitsubishi Outlander [above]. I like the fact that you’re a
little bit higher up and have good visibility. And it’s got plenty of space
so that when we all go down to our family beach house after Christmas, you
can get in what you need for a good week. "

Do you have a favourite drive?

"My most common drive is to the airport but my favourite drive is when my
wife and I go up to the Dandenongs and have a Devonshire tea. As I live in
the inner city I do enjoy that drive.  "

All that driving, and in such a relatively gassy car, whether the new model
or the old:

"Returning combined economy of 38.7mpg, the range-topping diesel isn’t far
behind the 42.2mpg efficiency of the 2.0-litre model. However, the larger
engine’s 194g/km CO2 emissions are less impressive compared to the 183g/km
output of the lower powered oil-burner."

It’s not as if Costello had no choice.

According to Carpages, he could have chosen any one of more than 3000 less
gassy models.

Odd thing is, Costello is now urging the Opposition Leader to join him in
gassy sinning:

"WORLD Vision chief executive Tim Costello has called on new Opposition
leader Tony Abbott to "get on a plane and come to Copenhagen"…"!!!!!
