Senator Inhofe dances on the grave of global warming

by editor on December 6, 2010

We love this story. The current United Nations’ Cancun global warming conference is an embarrassing failure. Instead of the world’s leaders gathering as they did last year in Copenhagen, this year’s waste-a-thon attracted nothing but lower level flunkies. People who built their reputations on global warming are now avoiding it like it has herpes.

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, who has been one of the most vocal critics of the entire global warming scam, is dancing on its grave. He started by doing the Watusi, followed that by doing the Twist, then did the Hully Gully, and finished up with a wild rendition of the Monkey.

Dance, Jimmy, dance. You were right all along and never gave an inch when you were standing out there fighting the good fight all alone.

We have come a long way since the last UN Climate meeting last year when President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Lisa Jackson, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and dozens of lawmakers made their way to Copenhagen to tell the world that cap-and-trade was going to pass the United States Senate. Yet the truth was it had no chance of passing. To deliver that message, I traveled to Copenhagen as a one-man truth squad. I was only on the ground for about 2 hours, perhaps the most enjoyable 2 hours of my life, but the message I delivered was clear; under no circumstances will Global Warming Cap and Trade legislation ever pass the United States Senate. The reporters and diplomats didn’t like it. They hated me for telling the truth. But here we are: I was right and they were wrong.

The fact is, nothing is going to happen in Cancun this year and everyone knows it. I couldn’t be happier and poor Al Gore couldn’t be more upset: it has been widely reported that he is “depressed” about Cancun.
But let me be clear: despite our success over the past year, global warming alarmists will continue to push their agenda. For example, some leaders in Cancun are stepping up their attacks on capitalism and United Nations officials are saying they need to do more to “spread the wealth around.” All of this is more of the same.

Remember it was French President Jacques Chirac, who said in 2000 that Kyoto Protocol was the “first component of an authentic global governance.” And Margot Wallstrom, the European Union’s former Environment Commissioner, who said in 2001 that Kyoto is about “trying to create a level playing field for big businesses throughout the world.”

Good work, Senator Inhofe. To paraphrase Barack Obama, “You won.”

If Infohe runs in 2012 I’m maxing out my contribution and pledging to raise 6 figures for him. He has guts. Global warming is a scam. I’m sending him my Al Gore snow globes that play “If I only had a Brain” and the ice trays that I invented that make Al’s head as cubes. Gore, Obama, Gingrich, Graham, Shwartzenmoron,Bloomburqa- They are all the same. IDIOTS or HUCKSTERS your choice. Big government backroom carbon voucher dealers- arrest all of them for treason.

The whole global warming scam is being exposed. Everywhere except in Kulyfornia. They believe in cork screw bulbs, electric cars, wind mills and solar panels. Add it all up and all you get is a big ‘0’. They’ll have to charge their electric cars on a windy and sunny day.

I believe in good stewardship. I grew up in beautiful pristine areas and I appreciate the beauty and awesomeness around me. I believe the climate is changing. NEWS FLASH! It changes all the time! When this country was formed, we were just coming out of a “mini” ice age. There was ice in the Potomac. we have gradually warmed, in response to a number of things, but mostly just because that’s what happens. We are overdue for a flip of the poles-it will be devastating when it occurs, but there’s not a damn thing we can change about it. If global warming were legitimately man made, I suspect we would not longer be using planes for recreational and private travel. No longer would sports teams fly all over hell’s high acre to play teams in their “conference” that are 1000 miles away from their school. No vacations to the Islands, Hawaii, Europe, Mexico, since that is too much CO2 production for no good reason. And people like Al Gore would not be living in heavily lit mansions. Clearly even THEY don’t believe their own rhetoric.

Do you remember when these hucksters led by Obama and Gore said last year that their goal was to drop global temps 2 degrees in 10 years? Do they have any clue how many folks would starve due to a decrease in farmland? Of course this isn’t possible by human choice but the arrogance of these morons is the danger. Stupidity and power don’t mix

He needs to get a law passed to bitch-slap the Governator and AB32 before they drive California further into bankruptcy. While’s he’s at it please outlaw the clowns at CARB who seem to commit fraud on a regular basis by hiring people with mail order Ph.D’s to arrive at pre-conveived conclusions and doing things like overestimating diesel emissions by 340%.

Quick plug to a long time favorite blog of mine: Warren Myer’s coyoteblog.com and a newer sister site called climate-skeptic. Anyone who has been reading those knew the data was fake as far back as 2007 if I recall correctly.

Not nearly as fun as this place but Warren did a shitload of his own research.

my uncle is a marine biologist who’s teaches at UC berkeley and he runs a lab that is sponsored by private industry—for the last 20 years. global warming/climate change is real and is being escalated by our behavior… that aside, we’re putting elements into the environment that make us ill. if the collapse of the twin towers perfectly illustrates how the materials we create affect our health—first responders are ill because of the crap we use. our water, air and food supply are being affected by the continued use of synthetic products… if the crap we create can us at this level, the doesn’t it make sense that it affects our environment as well… which will ultimately have the greatest affect on us.

Yes, thats my way of saying that I don’t believe you…or that you are very stupid. Don’t worry, I’m not going to visit or anything. My point is that someone could if what you said is true and they were willing to put in a little time and money.

Let me guess, a few years back your “uncle” and his lab studied the ozone layer, or maybe DDT? And maybe before that it was global cooling? There are lots of labs and professors that whore themselves to the crisis du jure because thats where the grant money is. Doesn’t mean its true. Anyone that has followed this for more than 6 months knows about Mann’s data hiding antics, the redacted NASA data, the selective tree ring sampling, the temperature monitors placed in urban areas and on and on. Its BS dude and everyone who looks at it objectively knows it.

Also, isn’t Berkley the place where the American Eugenics movement was centered? Good track record of being for humanity there.

thanks YT, but your wrong… on most everything. really not worried about you visiting me, or anyone else for that matter… i welcome all those with a little time to come visit me in the berkeley hills… where us liberal elites live… that said, let’s address my uncle, a marine biologist and not a whore. his funding comes from companies that have absolutely zero investment in his research. he’s perfectly free to conclude, as most scientists do, that we are in fact affecting the acceleration of global climate change. we also affect our own health, as well as marine life—marine life being his primary concern. the health of the sea is directly tied to the health of the planet… common sense. you brought up the eugenics movement… wasn’t that almost 90 years ago? that’s as stupid as me saying “didn’t the skull and crossbones start at yale? good track record”

Ok, so what does a Marine Biologist know about global warming then? Why would anyone with no investment in his research (I assume this means no bottom line leverage to the outcome of his results) pay him then? Sure these aren’t NGOs with an agenda.

Go tell your uncle that his ilk have been so shrill about our eminent doom (unless we go back to 1700 agregian life right away) that its a bit like the boy who cried wolf. Even if he is right, nobody is going to listen because people like him have been so damn wrong over the last…I dunno… 3 or 4 decades?

P.S. The Eugenics thing is just a means of poking a whole in your attempt at using name recognition to bolster your BS argument. Really, neither statements belong in a rational discussion.

Mr. YT
I agree with you in the fact that people have been wrong over and over again on the matter of HOW global Warming (or whatnot) is affecting us and the future of the planet. Remember though, people believe obviously fictitious things all the time. Take the Jehovah’s Witnesses for example, They’ve been told Armageddon was going to happen on several specific dates throughout the last century and a half. They were lied to about doomsday and still have zealous followers, why should a few instances of flawed science stop anyone from believing what the rest of the science says? 🙂

Not being a smart ass here . . . promise. Something I have always been curious about is how these predictive computer models account for chaos, other than the use of Monte Carlo. Thanks.

YT

They don’t. Its a bunch of dorks cherry picking data to model to get grant money. At best they do a regression and find a bunch of correlating variables from the past or something similar.

Its kind of like stock market Guru’s that think of some model, back test it and when it shows a past predictive ability they try to sell you a newsletter about it. But they don’t keep predicting the future (otherwise they would be the wealthiest people on earth and you would have heard of them). Human beings have an uncanny knack for finding meaning in meaningless, random data.

The Mann guy got busted by statisticians doing something similar. They actually showed that with the mistakes me made, any sort of random noise would produce a curve showing similar “global warming”.

Donavan I understand you feel strongly about this topic and want people to understand how much you feel we need to do more. Your story is anectotal and your reasoning is immature.

Please note, none of us like pollution. This isn’t Captain Planet, there aren’t villains who live to pollute the land and poison the water. I like clean air. I like clean water. If a product comes along that is environmentally friendly *and* as good as or better than current products I’ll buy it.

That said, America is better at leaning up after itself than any other country on the planet. We have more trees planted now than we did 50-75 years ago. We are keeping up our end of Kyoto’s clean air and water criteraia without even trying.

Is the climate changing? Yes. It’s climate. It doesn’t have a thermostat we can control. It’s dynamically changing all the time. We have to adapt to it, that’s what mankind has been doing ever since we came on the scene. I see no reason to stop our tenhnological advancement because some people feel bad about how we process our resources.

If you want to live in a hut and give up all the cool techy toys we have to make our lives easier, I’m not stopping you. But you and your liberal friends have no right to try and stop me.

The whole issue is fueled by guilt. Guilt is a powerful tool to manipulate people. It used to be just the preacher types operating as vendors of guilt, capitalizing on people’s guilt over sex and anything else people felt inadequate over. When you examine the guilt vendors’ lives more closely, all’s you see for most of them is either a fanaticism borne out of ignorance, or pure hypocrisy.

Now we have guilt vendors telling us that not only are we using most of the world’s resources, we are supposed to feel bad about it. We’re bombarded with images like ‘Captain Planet’ from an early age. I had a woman in church tell me garbage like how a cow in the Netherlands gets a greater subsidy than a person living in africa will earn in a year, and apparently, I am supposed to feel that is unfair. I asked her how much the african person would make if he was born in a land where corruptocrats addicted to handouts hadn’t demolished all semblance of government in their greed to get as much of the charity money as tools like her could steer their way. (What they need most IMO is good, stable government, so they can rebuild their economies — something their fellow corruptocrats at the UN are incapable of delivering…)

This is no accident — this is a ladder to power, and the people being manipulated have no idea how bad it is. Instead, they get whipped up into another religious frenzy about it — but their frenzy and inquisitions are aimed at the heretics who go so far as to even question any of it.

I like what my uncle, a geologist said about global warming. “Of course there’s global warming. Just 40,000 years ago, Kentucky was covered with glaciers.” He also wondered how the AGW could reach across the solar system and cause temperatures on Mars to reach an all-time high. I think the fairest assessment of people who are total adherents to AGW is that they are simply scared of progress, and worried about factors beyond their control. Most people who oppose the hysteria either have faith that things will go on as before, or understand that these things are larger than any of us, and so the earth will heat up, cool down, and do all sorts of things we cannot predict, or even influence as much as we think we can.

Environmental stewardship is vital, but I don’t need a bogeyman like AGW to tell me that we need to take care of our planet. Since the AGW bogeyman is currently being used to make certain politicians very very wealthy, I’m always going to disbelieve their sincerity and mistrust their intentions.

Inhofe is a hero. If it weren’t for him we’d have Cap&trade by now and who knows what that would have done to us.

Just give it a number of years and we’ll all look back on this time as a bizaar period in our history. The Dems will wear this one for decades.
