Arrogant Obama Ignores Climate Scam

Posted by courage On December - 5 - 2009

Apparently the President does not believe the brakes should be applied and what could eventually be the catalysis that drives the economy in to an abyss, Cap and Trade, needs to move forward.  Make no mistake the Hopenhagan conference, set to start next week, is the green pseudoscience which the House based their ” American Clean Energy and Security Act HR 2454.”   First Obama wasn’t going, then he was going at the start of the conference, and now he will be there at the end.

Instead, the White House announced Friday that Obama was doubling down on his commitment to the summit’s goals and moving his visit later in the month, hoping it will secure a “meaningful” agreement.

“Doubling down” in his pursuit to ruin this economy.  Is this the same President who states a respect for the merits of science?

The truth is promoting science isn’t just about providing resources; it’s about protecting free and open inquiry.  Insuring the facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology.

It’s about listening to what our scientists have to say- even when it’s inconvenient- especially when it’s inconvenient.  The highest purpose of science is the search for knowledge, truth and a greater understanding of the world around us. (emphasis mine)

The inconvenient truth is the science is NOT absolute.  Period.. and until there is an independent investigation of the “scientists and their research” which fuel this “science,” the United States should NOT enter in to or even given the appearance of condoning speculative science, at best.

Apparently the President who claims to cherish science, doesn’t understand the most elementary aspects of the discipline.

Senator Boxer: Real Issue Behind Climategate May be Email Theft

Posted by courage On December - 3 - 2009

From the Wall Street Journal:

Surely there must have been serious men and women in the hard sciences who at some point worried that their colleagues in the global warming movement were putting at risk the credibility of everyone in science. The nature of that risk has been twofold: First, that the claims of the climate scientists might buckle beneath the weight of their breathtaking complexity. Second, that the crudeness of modern politics, once in motion, would trample the traditions and culture of science to achieve its own policy goals. With the scandal at the East Anglia Climate Research Unit, both have happened at once.

I don’t think most scientists appreciate what has hit them. This isn’t only about the credibility of global warming. For years, global warming and its advocates have been the public face of hard science. Most people could not name three other subjects they would associate with the work of serious scientists. This was it. The public was told repeatedly that something called “the scientific community” had affirmed the science beneath this inquiry. A Nobel Prize was bestowed (on a politician).

The issue surrounding Climategate centers on whether or not scientists, politicians, the media and major companies (such as General Electric) have with malice attempted to scam the American public.  Is the science replicable or not?   We know that the data used to champion the warming hysteria was trashed, throw away like an old newspaper.  The only remaining data are the conclusion figures which admittedly have been “fixed” to reflect the hysteria mantra.

Senator Boxer, does it not concern you that the implied intent of the released emails points to FRAUD?

We are seeing agenda and ideology trumping the request for true scientific exploration.

Climate Change Data Dumped… Time to Dump Cap and Trade

Posted by courage On November - 30 - 2009

From the UK Times Online:

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.

The data went in to the trash making replication impossible for  honest scientists.  Why is this important?  Without the raw data it is impossible to validate the conclusions the UEA made regarding the climate change.  Furthermore the the publicly released emails point to collusion and intentional deceit on the part of these scientists. What scientist throws away data they have collected for decades and have made their life’s work?  I’ll answer this question.. NONE, unless you have something to hide.

Their findings are one of the main pieces of evidence used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which says global warming is a threat to humanity.

Climategate or How Scientist Are in Collusion and Falsified Data

Posted by courage On November - 27 - 2009

The one thing about science I have always appreciated is the concept  of replication.  In fact, this is the backbone of what distinguishes good scientific results and theory from pure guess work.   Replication can take a couple of forms; 1.) involves unrelated scientists studying the same problem and arriving at the same or similar conclusions, or 2.) scientists sharing raw data crunching the numbers and independently reaching similar conclusions as to the meaning of the data.

The data used as the foundation of the United Nations report on global warming has always been suspect in my mind for a number of reasons.  The  data from the studies  are the foundation of the UN recommendations and the basis for the Copenhagen treaty next month, has never been shared with other scientists.  At one point these scientists, the ones who champion the treaty, even stated that the  data was inadvertently destroyed.   We  are not talking about some napkin theory, drawn up over a drunken dinner; the data used was freely passed between a handful of cheerleaders to “replicate” the original hypothesis that carbon dioxide was killing the planet and suddenly was unavailable to scientists who questioned the manipulation of the data and the results.

Al Gore… Meet the Protesters

Posted by courage On November - 15 - 2009


During a speech based on his wildly factious movie, Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore finds protesters outside who are not “all square” with his pseudoscience on climate change.

As one protester points out in the interview, “following the money.”  Indeed follow the money, Gore has become a multi-millionaire through his efforts to sound an alarm over “climate change.”  Oh wait those words have been scrubbed since it can definitely be said that the climate does change, Orwellian speak is now “environmental justice.”  For additional information on this bad science see links on toolbar for Cap and Trade.

Now back to the money..

From Newsbusters:

In fact, just two months ago, ABC estimated soon-to-be-Nobel Laureate Al Gore’s net worth at $100 million, which isn’t bad considering that he was supposedly worth about $1 million when he watched George W. Bush get sworn in as president in January 2001.

Talk about your get-rich-quick schemes, how’d you like to increase your net worth 10,000 percent in less than seven years?

Fortunately for the world’s foremost warm-monger -….

Yes and even more recently, from The Wall Street Journal:

WASHINGTON — A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000. (emphasis mine)

I’m still trying to figure out why we are lending money to a foreign car company when we already own two.

Clip of the protest can be found here on this link at BreitBar TV.

At the end the reporter makes what sounds as though it is an altruistic motion by Gore and the funds raised by the event.  She told everyone that the money raised from the event goes to the “Non-profit Alliance for Climate Protection fund.”  Now doesn’t that make you feel all warm and cozy, knowing our former VP is donating all this money he raised?  Curious as I am, I checked out the Alliance for Climate .  Surprise, surprise… when I went to the site I was met by a humongous picture of a pale Al Gore.  Digging further on the organization I found this:

The Alliance for Climate Protection is an organization founded in the United States in 2006 aiming to “persuade people of the importance, urgency and feasibility of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis”.[1] The founder and current chairman of the alliance is former US Vice President Al Gore.[1]

And what does his organization promote… the very tenets that make up the Cap and Trade legislation which passed the House.  Just saying as founder and chairman I somehow think that old Al gets a hunk of that money in way of salary, transportation on private green flying machine he travels in and from all appearance gets his meals paid for also.

United Nations Global Climate Treaty.. COPS

Posted by courage On October - 20 - 2009

Earth Outer Space

Here is the radio interview that Glenn Beck did yesterday with Lord Monckton on the United Nations COPS treaty.

From the interview, the purpose of the Treaty…

“… a vast transfer of wealth from the West to poorer countries, in the name of  what is called reparations for climate debt..”

What will be the cost to the United States?

“… up to 2% of the GDP every year to poorer countries..”

Listen to the interview:

I forgive Lord Monckton for misstating the Article of the Constitution which deals with ratification of Foreign Treaties.. it’s Article 5.

The interview continues…

John Holdren who Lord Monckton speaks about near the end of the clip is the advisor czar to President Obama for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology.

Do You Believe the Lies You’ve Been Told on GLOBAL WARMING?

Posted by courage On October - 17 - 2009

I started to present the pseudoscience surrounding climate change in this post:

Obama, Science and False Conclusions

While there may be some which still believe the fault based assumptions surrounding climate change, the TRUTH is that the science is being  skewed by researchers who have ulterior motives. In order for science to reach a minimal standard of validity it must be replicated through numerous studies, typically by independent researchers.

The problem in this debate is   an entire industry has developed which includes journalists, scientists and  governments; all which gain will gain monetarily from the climate change caravan.  Journalists have created careers in reporting  the catastrophic consequences of this pseudoscience.  Scientists who depend on  research grants to fund their studies, twist their research to support the assumption  academia champions.  And governments are looking to fuel coffers with tax dollars which can be made on the ponzi scam of  “environmental justice.”  The United Nations is intimately involved by way of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.  On December 7-18, 2009 an estimated 12,000 to 15,000 delegates from around the world will descend on Copenhagen for the “Conference of the Parties,”  otherwise knows as COPS.  An interesting acronym since that is exactly what they will do during this conference.. attempting to police the world, especially those pesky developed countries such as the United States.  The theme for the conference is HOPE, I kid you not.  See here.

The “hope” for the United Nations delegates  is to bamboozle persuade industrial nations to sign a treaty which will institute extensive caps on C02 emissions, assist developing countries by way of money to develop their own “green” economies and  allow the United Nations control over any and all goverance and potential alterations of the treaty.  Now, this may not concern you.. you may think, “what’s the big deal?”  Watch this clip and tell me if doen’t make you a wee bit concerned…

Will the Government LET You Sell YOUR Home?

Posted by courage On September - 26 - 2009

EarthOn June 26, 2009 the House passed the “American Clean Energy and Security Act HR 2454”, on a vote of 219-212.  This bill is more commonly called Cap and Trade. For those unfamiliar with this bill, see CourageToSee’s handout on the issue here. Soon the Senate will be taking up the “Embrace Mother Earth” mantra as they develop their own “environmental justice” legislation to combat the pseudoscience of climate change, which I have previously written about here.

Buried in the kumbaya calls to save Mother Earth are stipulations which should have every homeowner concerned.  From Politico:

The bill contains 397 new regulations. One of them would affect almost everyone who buys or sells a home. If Waxman-Markey becomes law, homes for sale that qualify as “federally related transactions” — which is almost all of them — would be required to undergo an environmental inspection.

Big Brother will be knock, knock, knocking on your door, checking appliances, furnace, A/C unit, windows, insulation and doors, for all intensive purposes every structural aspect of your home.
