    What fools these global warming overlords be 

    Via James Delingpole at The Telegraph

    During last week’s UN Climate Change Conference representatives from CFACT asked delegates to sign 2 petitions to prove what fools these global warming overlords be. The first called for the destabilization of the United States economy by imposing a series of tariffs and trade restrictions that would cause a 6% drop in GDP. Sounds awesome right?  The delegates had no trouble with that concept at all and quickly signed their names. Does anything register with these folks?

    The second petition called for the ban of dihydrogen monoxide, a “dangerous” chemical compound, because as the “largest greenhouse gas” it poses a serious threat to the environment. Notice what the delegates, who freely sign the petition, are consuming as the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide are detailed:

      ROTFL!

      But, unfortunately, it’s laughing-through-tears time again.

      Where do these geniuses think that the money to pay for their global largess is going to come from if not from the pockets of U.S. taxpayers and charities? From Belgium? LOL.

      These folks obviously slept through fifth-grade chemistry, but they certainly were awake for all the classes in which hate was taught.

      A world designed by haters. Just what we don’t need.

        I know, it is a laughter-through-tears moment. Delingpole really plays up the “dangers” of that villainous chemical compound H2O. These are really not the best and brightest. Props to CFACT, it was genius to have this filmed near the water cooler.

      Where do they find these geniuses?

        Lolz all around. Be sure to swallow your dihydrogen monoxide before watching.

    Michael Mann Thinks He’s So Smart: Aims Lawsuit @ Bloggers 

    Touchy, touchy.

    Global alarmist Michael Mann is celebrating Earth Day this year by sending his lawyers after bloggers who made fun of poor little old him.

    Mann used to love being one of the world’s most famous global alarmists before he got caught playing fast and loose with the scientific method and statistical analysis. Now he’s going after Minnesotans for Global Warming because they dared to poke fun at his mishandling of scientific data.

    Mann’s lawyers have demanded that M4GW remove one of their best videos from their Web page and from YouTube, which they did. But it hasn’t been completely scrubbed yet, and i found a copy of it. It’s also available at No Cap and Trade.

    Mann, one of the academic co-inventors of Global Warming alarmism, is now a professor at Penn State. However, he was teaching at the University of Virginia when he concocted his infamous “hockey stick” graph, in which he spliced together cherry-picked findings from different studies to make the argument for global warming look convincing to policymakers and the general public. Mann also limited the sample size of his tree-ring studies to exclude available samples that would negate his findings.

    In short, he razzle-dazzled a much warmer past into a much warmer future, picking up plenty of taxpayer supplied grant money along the way. (Accompanying charts over at Bread upon the Waters.)

    Accidentally on purpose, Mann managed to make the entire Medieval Warming period–in which Earth’s temperature rose without the assistance of human activity–disappear from view, leaving plenty of room for tall tales that the enormous Himalayan glaciers are about to melt, the rainforests are about to disappear, polar bears contentedly sunning themselves on ice floes are in danger of drowning, and the CO2 gas needed by Earth’s plant life to exist and which is exhaled by all mammals, including humans, ought to be taxed into oblivion.

    Fast forward to Climate Gate, in which a number of inconvenient truths were exposed as untruths. It turns out that the Himalayan glaciers are behaving normally, global temperatures are not threatening the rainforests, the polar bear population is exploding and not decreasing, and Obama and his Obamatons won’t really be saving the Earth by cutting down on the atmospheric gas that plants need to grow so that we can turn them into orange juice and Cheerios (or even tofu and granola).

    Happy Earth Day, Professor Mann. And try to keep in mind this message from Mother Nature, brought to us via Minnesotans for Global Warming: Nothing would be green without CO2.

      You know what they say – if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bu&&$%it.

      Funny how the liberals love to dish it out but are so thin-skinned when it comes back at them.
