The State run media, and man made climate change…

See Nothing, Hear Nothing, Report Nothing

Glacier? What glacier?

“Avoid the term ‘global warming,'” advises New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman. “I prefer the term ‘global weirding,’ because that is what actually happens as global temperatures rise and the climate changes.”

Friedman, who proves that anyone can be a climatologist, goes on to explain that with global warming, “The weather gets weird. The hots are expected to get hotter, the wets wetter, the dries drier and the most violent storms more numerous. The fact that it has snowed like crazy in Washington — while it has rained at the Winter Olympics in Canada, while Australia is having a record 13-year drought — is right in line with what every major study on climate change predicts: The weather will get weird; some areas will get more precipitation than ever; others will become drier than ever.”

No matter what happens, blame global warming.

But as Friedman and other dogmatists peddle their propaganda, the case for man-made global warming is collapsing like a weak roof in a Beltway blizzard. In fact, we might call it “man made-up” climate change.

Phil Jones, the former director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and a central figure in the ClimateGate scandal, now admits that for the past 15 years, there has been no “statistically significant” warming. Furthermore, he says the warming trend that began in 1975 is not unlike two previous periods since 1850, and the Medieval Warm Period could have been a global phenomenon similar to the latter three. Yet Jones, who said he has had trouble “keeping track” of information supporting the infamous hockey stick graph, is still a believer in man-made global warming and he calls the last 15 years a blip in a long-term trend.

Meanwhile, John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a former lead author on the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is also questioning his faith. “The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change,” he said. Christy’s doubts, like those of other researchers, stem from problems with thousands of weather stations used to collect temperature data. Urbanization and changes in land use, equipment relocation and other factors have compromised the data. “The popular data sets show a lot of warming,” he said, “but the apparent temperature rise was actually caused by local factors affecting the weather stations, such as land development.”

These are truly stunning admissions, coming as they do from “the consensus,” and cast grave doubt on what we have long been told is “settled science.” For their part, U.S. media outlets have reported exhaustively on these developments… scratch that. No, they haven’t. As Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters notes, “Despite the seriousness of these revelations, much as what happened when the ClimateGate scandal first broke, with the exception of Fox News — and a lone report by CNN — America’s media have almost totally boycotted this amazing story.”

Similar revelations regarding data manipulation by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) have surfaced with little or no fanfare.

Many of these same media outlets, however, found plenty of time to cover the “news” that Tiger Woods has broken his silence, or the fact that Hollywood director Kevin Smith was kicked off a plane for being too fat. As of Tuesday, CNN had reported it 14 times. Light on substance and, er, heavy on fragrance.


King Freudenthal?

January 18, 2010

I find it nothing less than amazing when big government socialist like Bill Ritter smell the tar and see the feathers that a scant hundred miles north our own Governor pushes a similar agenda based in political correctness and leftest boot licking….

Read on;

Governor Freudenthal recently stated about Federal tax on carbon–

“There is some number out there, that you need to use to monetize carbon, to affect behavior”.

The most obvious from this statement is that Freudenthal fully supports the Washington D.C. tax and control agenda known as “Cap and Trade”.

The thought that that Wyoming residents need to have their ‘behavior’ affected by taxing, proves that Freudenthal has become part of the elite class and not one of us.

This isn’t the first time Freudenthal has used this “affect behavior” language he also did so here — Wyoming’s Governor Freudenthal to launch a persuasive building code campaign.

Since we pay taxes on purchases, income, property, vehicles, among other things, further tax and control of our lives by either the state of federal government is out of order.

Sorry King Freudenthal, in case you haven’t read the Constitution please go back and review the Magna Carter, a document in which our constitution has its roots, but it was directed at Royal Kingship. Particularly this – NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed;.

We live in the climate of this state by choice and by doing so, pay enough in heating costs, we don’t need a “tax” to affect our behavior or worst to be destroyed by taxation. We do need to affect your behavior as well as the rest of the politician of this state that have grown our government to record levels for a population of just 530,000 thousand.

On this day, we do hereby declare by this informal charter that; NO freeman be further imposed upon by frivolous taxation and control over our lives. King Freudenthal it is time that you are removed from your throne forever and always.
