New York Times Pontificates, God Laughs Al Gore et/al cries

As the sun beings to rise on a day when the cur­rent (6:50 a.m.) wind chill of 10 degrees is the warmest we see for a bit.

We see that the reli­gion of Global Warm­ing oops sorry Cli­mate Change is still the reli­gion of choice for our friends of the left (much bet­ter than that Chris­t­ian stuff with actual rules on how to treat peo­ple) and we have a flock of sto­ries on the sub­ject Lets Start with Don Surber who com­ments on this post at the NYT blog con­cern­ing Global warm­ing being actu­ally worse than what we think:

This tells me two things.

1. The global warm­ing crowd are now hid­ing behind the euphemism “cli­mate change” because the post is about a rise in temperature.

2. Obvi­ously the global warm­ing side is not win­ning even with the media dom­i­nated by so many True Believ­ers in this crack­pot theory.

I have a prob­lem with peo­ple who mock bal­anced cov­er­age. That is sup­posed to be the goal of jour­nal­ism. Jour­nal­ists are sup­posed to inform not educate.

The other prob­lem is fram­ing this as a debate on how high the tem­per­a­ture will rise. There are those sci­en­tists who fear a return to global cool­ing as we feared would hap­pen in the 1970s. The sud­den drop in sunspots in the sum­mer of 2007 could por­tend a return to pre-​1850 temperatures.

Don Don Don this is a reli­gion, it has noth­ing to do with what is actu­ally going on.

Ed Driscoll at PJM con­tin­ues point­ing to the cov­er­age and makes a pre­dic­tion:

We reviewed a num­ber of those head­lines then and now, in our “Hide the Decline” edi­tion of Sil­i­con Graf­fiti last year. Tune in here if you missed it.

And speak­ing of movies, as I men­tioned back in March, a lot of Hollywood’s recent global warm­ing doom­fests are going to be remem­bered as updated ver­sions of Reefer Mad­ness to the next gen­er­a­tion of movie fans. Today’s global warm­ing fear-​mongering is tomorrow’s late-​night camp TV.

The irony of course is today as the east coast is hit by a bliz­zard and Atlanta has wind chills in the 20’s Morn­ing Joe replays an inter­view with James Cameron talk­ing all Global warm­ing and how we must act.

He quotes this post by Stacy that says in part:

The prob­lem, of course, is that Sci­ence keeps run­ning head-​on into those stub­born lit­tle things called “facts.” Despite all these “Trust Us We’re Sci­en­tists” argu­ments, peo­ple still refuse to believe that global warm­ing causes record snowfall:

With the East Coast gripped by bit­ter cold, Paris par­a­lyzed by snow and a head­line in the UK’s Daily Express exclaim­ing, “Britain is Freez­ing to Death,” global warm­ing alarmists will again have to fall back on their “cli­mate change” sleight of hand to explain away the cold.

That’s just one of the “Top 10 Bad Devel­op­ments for Global Warm­ing Alarmists.”

Mind you that post was writ­ten on DEC 22nd 5 days before the events of today.

Mean­while the lat­est from the left wing Guardian was just too much for Ann Alt­house:

When every­thing is evi­dence of the thing you want to believe, it might be time to stop pre­tend­ing you’re all about science.

Unaware? I don’t think “unaware” enters into it con­sid­er­ing the e-​mails, Don Surber again:

I worked for a while on a dairy farm. My job was to push the brown stuff outside.

Hey Cohen isn’t a weather expert; he’s a dairy farm worker.

Bliz­zards across the north­ern hemi­sphere and a white Christ­mas in Aus­tralia do not dis­prove global warm­ing. The lies from the researchers, as dis­closed in Cli­mate­gate, already did that.

For­get­ting the arro­gance of us deter­min­ing what the proper “cli­mate” is sup­posed to be we can bot­tom line
Global warming/​Climate Change with two goals:

Goal 1: To advance a col­lec­tivist agenda by redis­trib­ut­ing wealth from those who pro­duce (ie da West).

Goal 2: To allow the elites to once again act as feu­dal lords using tax payer funds to sup­port them­selves while tak­ing the odd jet to com­fort­able loca­tions around the globe where they can eat the finest foods, drink the finest liquors and enjoy com­fort­able com­pan­ion­ship while pro­claim­ing to the world their moral supe­ri­or­ity while urg­ing you to shut off that extra light to save the world.

The only green thing about Global Warm­ing and Cli­mate change is the cash that will be extorted from you.

As the sun beings to rise on a day when the current (6:50 a.m.) wind chill of 10 degrees is the warmest we see for a bit.

We see that the religion of Global Warming oops sorry Climate Change is still the religion of choice for our friends of the left (much better than that Christian stuff with actual rules on how to treat people) and we have a flock of stories on the subject Lets Start with Don Surber who comments on this post at the NYT blog concerning Global warming being actually worse than what we think:

This tells me two things.

1. The global warming crowd are now hiding behind the euphemism “climate change” because the post is about a rise in temperature.

2. Obviously the global warming side is not winning even with the media dominated by so many True Believers in this crackpot theory.

I have a problem with people who mock balanced coverage. That is supposed to be the goal of journalism. Journalists are supposed to inform not educate.

The other problem is framing this as a debate on how high the temperature will rise. There are those scientists who fear a return to global cooling as we feared would happen in the 1970s. The sudden drop in sunspots in the summer of 2007 could portend a return to pre-1850 temperatures.

Don Don Don this is a religion, it has nothing to do with what is actually going on.

Ed Driscoll at PJM continues pointing to the coverage and makes a prediction:

We reviewed a number of those headlines then and now, in our “Hide the Decline” edition of Silicon Graffiti last year. Tune in here if you missed it.

And speaking of movies, as I mentioned back in March, a lot of Hollywood’s recent global warming doomfests are going to be remembered as updated versions of Reefer Madness to the next generation of movie fans. Today’s global warming fear-mongering is tomorrow’s late-night camp TV.

The irony of course is today as the east coast is hit by a blizzard and Atlanta has wind chills in the 20’s Morning Joe replays an interview with James Cameron talking all Global warming and how we must act.

He quotes this post by Stacy that says in part:

The problem, of course, is that Science keeps running head-on into those stubborn little things called “facts.” Despite all these “Trust Us We’re Scientists” arguments, people still refuse to believe that global warming causes record snowfall:

With the East Coast gripped by bitter cold, Paris paralyzed by snow and a headline in the UK’s Daily Express exclaiming, “Britain is Freezing to Death,” global warming alarmists will again have to fall back on their “climate change” sleight of hand to explain away the cold.

That’s just one of the “Top 10 Bad Developments for Global Warming Alarmists.”

Mind you that post was written on DEC 22nd 5 days before the events of today.

Meanwhile the latest from the left wing Guardian was just too much for Ann Althouse:

When everything is evidence of the thing you want to believe, it might be time to stop pretending you’re all about science.

Unaware? I don’t think “unaware” enters into it considering the e-mails, Don Surber again:

I worked for a while on a dairy farm. My job was to push the brown stuff outside.

Hey Cohen isn’t a weather expert; he’s a dairy farm worker.

Blizzards across the northern hemisphere and a white Christmas in Australia do not disprove global warming. The lies from the researchers, as disclosed in Climategate, already did that.

Forgetting the arrogance of us determining what the proper “climate” is supposed to be we can bottom line
Global warming/Climate Change with two goals:

Goal 1: To advance a collectivist agenda by redistributing wealth from those who produce (ie da West).

Goal 2: To allow the elites to once again act as feudal lords using tax payer funds to support themselves while taking the odd jet to comfortable locations around the globe where they can eat the finest foods, drink the finest liquors and enjoy comfortable companionship while proclaiming to the world their moral superiority while urging you to shut off that extra light to save the world.

The only green thing about Global Warming and Climate change is the cash that will be extorted from you.
