The TOP TEN Reasons to Surrender all our Property and Freedom to Environmentalist Regulators

March 21, 2011 by Doris Grupa

We stand at a point of crisis, in fact, many crises,  just as we have been doing for more than 70 years without fully realizing it. Even me. And, just as it was in 1972 when Nixon facilitated the earth in averting  Sino-Soviet cooperation, Midstream Republicans must save us.
Our destruction is at hand from many sources. In this article we divulge the top ten most urgent, starting with some of the better-known.


Global Warming. I don’t have to explain this. Everyone is familiar with it because it has already taken us in its grip, melting the polar ice caps, drying up all our water, killing the polar bears, causing hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cold waves, heat waves and international conferences.
Global Cooling. Long forgotten, the specter of global cooling, which the environmentalists warned us about in the ’70s, is being reconsidered with the shift in global temperatures (and the discovery of falsified data). Global cooling would expand the polar ice caps, freezing up all our water, killing the panda bears, causing hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cold waves, heat waves and international conferences.
Climate Change is neither global warming nor global cooling, but a deadly vacillating back and forth between BOTH, drying up, then freezing all our water, killing the polar bears AND panda bears, causing hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cold waves, heat waves and international conferences.
Global Whacking. Near Earth Objects (Big Asteroids) crash into Earth, effectively whacking it.
Black Holes. A star collapses, producing an immense gravitational pull along the way, drawing everything in its path—including light—toward its core, like a giant vacuum cleaner from which there’s no escape.  A lot like the IRS.
Mini Black Holes. From the  Large Hadron Collider ( LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland. Although Hawking’s radiation should dissolve these holes instantly, no one knows for certain that Hawking’s radiation works on the micro scale or if we have enough of it. And if it doesn’t, one mini black hole could start bouncing around the Earth, essentially dicing the planet into two groups, the hole-y and the un-hole-y.
Nanobots. Billions of tiny self-replicating robots suddenly go berserk and instead of doing the job for which they were built (like mopping up an oil spill), they start consuming all matter on Earth—while building more of themselves. Ick.
Gamma Rays. A high-energy beam of electromagnetic
radiation shot out of a supernova, or exploding star. Researchers say we must avoid a routine gamma-ray burst within 3,000 light years of the Earth. A full-time job.
Strangelets. Bits of “strange matter.” When strange matter encounters normal matter, it turns normal matter into strange matter. Evidence of this is everywhere. Normally, strange matter decays in microseconds and doesn’t cause much harm. But it’s theoretically possible for a chunk to stabilize. If that happens it would start turning all nearby matter into strange matter—and it wouldn’t stop. The “normal” Earth would eventually be replaced by the “strange” Earth. There is no telling how far this has gone.
Deadly pathogens. These have already been made into bio-weapons. Any of them, especially with a little  genetic tinkering to make strains more virulent, would have the potential to end life as we know it. Pretty soon we’ll be genetically engineering bugs that no one has ever seen and to which no one has any natural-born immunity for the single purpose of wiping out all life on earth.
Antimatter. When matter and antimatter bump into each other, the result is total annihilation. The evil LHC in Geneva can manufacture antimatter in small amounts. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as much as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border. This synchrotron is designed to collide opposing particle beams of either protons at an energy of 7 teraelectronvolts (1.12 micro-joules) per particle, or lead. It could be taken out with a preemptive nuclear strike.
Yellowstone Park’s Super-volcano. It can pump enough ash and sulfuric acid into the atmosphere to blot out the sun, greatly multiplying the difficulty of casual reading, outdoor sports and rendering every sundial on earth totally inoperable. More funding is needed for research to develop means of eliminating super volcanoes.
Losses of Biodiversity. Too many species die, upsetting the fragile balance of eco-power through lack of eco-regulation. Eeeeek!
Solar Flares. Jets of plasma shooting out of the sun will cause massive outages, radio blackouts, satellite malfunctions, telecommunication-system meltdowns, a banking and financial-systems collapse and air-traffic control screens turned to fuzz. In other words, the same stuff we went through on Y2K all over again.
Alien Invasion (don’t laugh). The logic is simple. Since life evolved here from the random interaction of mindless matter, it must have happened all over the Universe. The cosmos is therefore, teeming with unknown life spanning the spectrum from primitive and warlike Sigourney-Weaver-style Aliens with acid blood to highly sophisticated super-intelligent super cultures with super-weapons and light speed hyperdrives. It’s only logical. And we are not prepared. Earth’s defenses are much like the U.S. Defenses before 911.

Just as it took Nixon to normalize relations with China,  Esser to embrace SEIU, Bush to get a prescription drug benefit and Mitt Romney to achieve universal health care and gay marriage in Massachusetts,  it will take Midstream Republicans to do the heavy lifting to avert environmental disasters.
We must look to Republican Environmentalists! Luckily, here in Washington we have Slade and Rob McKenna leading a solid team including (prominently) Sam Reed, Dave Reichert and Reagan Dunn. And mark my words, Dino will be back, stylin’! We’re all one, after all.
We must pass McCain/Lieberman! We must empower Regional Sustainability! We must develop a Department of HomePlanet Security with new powers striking down civil liberties and privacy. Biological eco-screening throughout society should become common, in schools, toll booths, stop lights and traffic checkpoints.
Give us DNA scans!
Give us the Big Tent!

Extreme Weather Is Another Global Warming Lie

A year ago, someone hacked into and leaked the e-mails of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), thereby exposing to the world the underhanded and downright anti-science acts of the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) cabal. The cabal had suppressed data contrary to AGW and blackballed skeptical scientists by preventing their work from being published in peer-reviewed journals.
After Climategate broke into the news, CRU Director Dr. Phil Jones made the following startling admissions

  • He had “misplaced” much of the raw data on which he based his AGW claims, although the data are absolutely essential for other scientists to verify and replicate his claims.
  • There’s been no global warming since 1995.
  • There really was a Medieval Warm Period, which Jones had denied and conveniently left out of his famous “hockey stick” graph on which he rests his AGW claims.

Despite those admissions, Jones and other Warmists such as Al Gore still insist that AGW ManBearPig is real! The only difference is that they now call ManBearPig by another name: It’s not Global Warming, it’s Climate Change!!!
And to get around the inconvenient truths that not only has there been no global warming since 1995, but the globe had a Medieval Warm Period before industrialization brought those warming-causing CO2 emissions, the Warmists now switch to weather extremes as evidence of climate change/global warming. Summers are getting hotter! Winters are getting colder and snowier! There’ll be more storms, hurricanes, cyclones, and tornados!
Alas, as the following article shows, like its predecessor Global Warming, the purported phenomenon of Extreme Weather is also not true. Global atmospheric data from 1871 to the present show no evidence that our weather is getting more extreme. Given the testimony of the empirical data, the claim of extreme weather is yet another lie of the Global Warming cabal.

The Weather Isn’t Getting Weirder
The latest research belies the idea that storms are getting more extreme.
By Anne Jolis – Wall St. Journal – Feb 10, 2011
Last week a severe storm froze Dallas under a sheet of ice, just in time to disrupt the plans of the tens of thousands of (American) football fans descending on the city for the Super Bowl. On the other side of the globe, Cyclone Yasi slammed northeastern Australia, destroying homes and crops and displacing hundreds of thousands of people.
Some climate alarmists would have us believe that these storms are yet another baleful consequence of man-made CO2 emissions. In addition to the latest weather events, they also point to recent cyclones in Burma, last winter’s fatal chills in Nepal and Bangladesh, December’s blizzards in Britain, and every other drought, typhoon and unseasonable heat wave around the world.
But is it true? To answer that question, you need to understand whether recent weather trends are extreme by historical standards. The Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project is the latest attempt to find out, using super-computers to generate a dataset of global atmospheric circulation from 1871 to the present.
As it happens, the project’s initial findings, published last month, show no evidence of an intensifying weather trend. “In the climate models, the extremes get more extreme as we move into a doubled CO2 world in 100 years,” atmospheric scientist Gilbert Compo, one of the researchers on the project, tells me from his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder. “So we were surprised that none of the three major indices of climate variability that we used show a trend of increased circulation going back to 1871.”
In other words, researchers have yet to find evidence of more-extreme weather patterns over the period, contrary to what the models predict. “There’s no data-driven answer yet to the question of how human activity has affected extreme weather,” adds Roger Pielke Jr., another University of Colorado climate researcher.
We do know that carbon dioxide and other gases trap and re-radiate heat. We also know that humans have emitted ever-more of these gases since the Industrial Revolution. What we don’t know is exactly how sensitive the climate is to increases in these gases versus other possible factors—solar variability, oceanic currents, Pacific heating and cooling cycles, planets’ gravitational and magnetic oscillations, and so on.
Given the unknowns, it’s possible that even if we spend trillions of dollars, and forgo trillions more in future economic growth, to cut carbon emissions to pre-industrial levels, the climate will continue to change—as it always has.
That’s not to say we’re helpless. There is at least one climate lesson that we can draw from the recent weather: Whatever happens, prosperity and preparedness help. North Texas’s ice storm wreaked havoc and left hundreds of football fans stranded, cold, and angry. But thanks to modern infrastructure, 21st century health care, and stockpiles of magnesium chloride and snow plows, the storm caused no reported deaths and Dallas managed to host the big game on Sunday.
Compare that outcome to the 55 people who reportedly died of pneumonia, respiratory problems and other cold-related illnesses in Bangladesh and Nepal when temperatures dropped to just above freezing last winter. Even rich countries can be caught off guard: Witness the thousands stranded when Heathrow skimped on de-icing supplies and let five inches of snow ground flights for two days before Christmas. Britain’s GDP shrank by 0.5% in the fourth quarter of 2010, for which the Office of National Statistics mostly blames “the bad weather.”
Arguably, global warming was a factor in that case. Or at least the idea of global warming was. The London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation charges that British authorities are so committed to the notion that Britain’s future will be warmer that they have failed to plan for winter storms that have hit the country three years running.
A sliver of the billions that British taxpayers spend on trying to control their climes could have bought them more of the supplies that helped Dallas recover more quickly. And, with a fraction of that sliver of prosperity, more Bangladeshis and Nepalis could have acquired the antibiotics and respirators to survive their cold spell.
A comparison of cyclones Yasi and Nargis tells a similar story: As devastating as Yasi has been, Australia’s infrastructure, medicine, and emergency protocols meant the Category 5 storm has killed only one person so far. Australians are now mulling all the ways they could have better protected their property and economy.
But if they feel like counting their blessings, they need only look to the similar cyclone that hit the Irrawaddy Delta in 2008. Burma’s military regime hadn’t allowed for much of an economy before the cyclone, but Nargis destroyed nearly all the Delta had. Afterwards, the junta blocked foreign aid workers from delivering needed water purification and medical supplies. In the end, the government let Nargis kill more than 130,000 people.
Global-warming alarmists insist that economic activity is the problem, when the available evidence show it to be part of the solution. We may not be able to do anything about the weather, extreme or otherwise. But we can make sure we have the resources to deal with it when it comes.

ManBearPig and the Big Freeze


This astonishing picture shows the world as it is today – with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.
The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America is in the grip of a severe winter storm. The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.
The shroud of white stretches down from Alaska and sweeps through the Midwest and along to the Eastern seaboard. The bitter cold has reached as far as Texas and northern Mexico where in Ciudad Juarez temperatures today were expected to dip to minus 15C. Tens of millions of people chose to stay at home rather than venture out. In Chicago, 20in of snow fell leading to authorities closing schools for the first time in 12 years. The newspaper for Tulsa, Okalahoma, was unable to publish its print edition for the first time in more than a century. [Source: Daily Mail]
But never fear, boys and girls. Al Gore is here!
He insists on his blog that “increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of manbearpig man-made global warming.”
This is the same Gore who once proclaimed in a CNN “Late Edition” interview with Wolf Blitzer that “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.” The same Gore whose new energy-wasting mansion (his 4th) in Montecito, Calif., has 6,500 square feet of living space and a swimming pool and fountains. His energy-wasting Nashville home is 10,000 square feet. The same Gore who had a net worth of a mere $1-2 million in 2000, but quickly fattened to an estimated $120 million by 2008 from his many global warming scams, such as an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize no less.
Hmm, let me see if I got it right:

  • If there’s increased heavy snowfalls, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If it’s an unexpectedly warm and dry winter, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If summer is beastly hot, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If summer is unseasonably cool, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!

In other words, the same cause can lead to entirely opposite results! Which means the “science” of man-made manbearpig global warming can and will never be proven wrong. Pure genius.
My looney-left friend Stephanie got it right all along 30 years ago:

“Don’t confuse me with facts! I’ve made up my mind!”

UK's national wealth service: Global cooling for last 10 years

Design by BKeyser


The Met Office or Meteorological Office is the UK’s national weather service.
Yesterday, November 26, 2010, the UK’s Daily Mail had an interesting article, Global warming has slowed down over the past 10 years, say scientists.” Not only has the globe been cooling instead of warming, scientists attribute the cooling to anthropogenic (man-made) pollution! Too funny. But did you hear or read about it here in the good ol’ U S of A? No. The article begins by saying:

The rate at which global temperatures are rising has slowed in the past decade, scientists said today. In a report published today, the Met Office said the slow in the rate of warming was down to a combination of natural variation in the weather and pollution. Scientists say one of the major factors is the rise in heavy industry and pollutant ‘aerosols’, particularly in Asia. An upsurge in industrial emissions such as sulphur which are being pumped into the atmosphere reflects sunlight and could lead to a cooling effect. Changes in the amount of water vapour in the stratosphere may also be a factor, the report suggests….

At the same time as the Daily Mail article says the globe has been cooling, the writer paradoxically insists that there still is Global Warming and warns that the cooling data “will be seized upon by climate sceptics as evidence that man-made global warming has been overstated.” The article continues:

Since the 1970s, the long-term rate of global warming has been around 0.16C a decade but that slowed in the last 10 years to between 0.05C – 0.13C depending on which of the three major temperature record series are used. Vicky Pope, head of climate science advice, said: ‘The warming trend has decreased slightly. There’s still a warming trend but it’s not as rapid as it was before. The question is why has that happened. It’s a question that sceptics often bring up.’ However researchers from the Met Office say there is still a warming trend over the 10 years since 2000 and the decade was the hottest on record. They also said a lack of data from the Arctic, where warming has been particularly strong in the last 10 years, and changes to the way sea surface temperatures are measured have led to an underestimate of the rate at which temperatures are rising. And while the UK is currently experiencing a cold snap and last year had the harshest winter for 30 years, the scientists said the evidence for man-made global warming had grown even stronger in the past year. Dr Pope said for global warming it was important to look at the global picture – which last year saw many parts of the world experience very warm temperatures even while the UK was gripped by snow and ice. And she said: ‘We are starting to see changes in the climate even in the UK which we can link to global warming. We’re seeing more heatwaves and seeing fewer of these cold winters.’

So, let me see if I got it right:

  • Scientists admit that climate data show that the globe actually has been cooling in the last decade, but the same scientists also insist that the last 10 years have been the warmest ever.
  • The UK has had “the harshest” (i.e., coldest) winter last year, but scientists say this is even stronger evidence of global warming and that “we’re seeing more heatwaves and seeing fewer of these colder winters.”

Which reminds me of this interview the BBC’s Roger Harrabin had Phil Jones on February 13, 2010. Jones is still the director of the University of East Anglia’s now infamous Climatic Research Unit (CRU) whose hacked e-mails showed a pattern of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) scientists faking their data and blackballing/censoring other climate scientists who are AGW skeptics.

Q: Do you agree that according to the global temperature record used by the IPCC, the rates of global warming from 1860-1880, 1910-1940 and 1975-1998 were identical? A: …Temperature data for the period 1860-1880 are more uncertain, because of sparser coverage, than for later periods in the 20th Century. The 1860-1880 period is also only 21 years in length. As for the two periods 1910-40 and 1975-1998 the warming rates are not statistically significantly different…. I have also included the trend over the period 1975 to 2009, which has a very similar trend to the period 1975-1998. So, in answer to the question, the warming rates for all 4 periods are similar and not statistically significantly different from each other. Q: Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming A: Yes, but only just. I also calculated the trend for the period 1995 to 2009. This trend (0.12C per decade) is positive, but not significant at the 95% significance level…. Q: Do you agree that from January 2002 to the present there has been statistically significant global cooling? A: No. This period is even shorter than 1995-2009. The trend this time is negative (-0.12C per decade), but this trend is not statistically significant. Q: Do you agree that natural influences could have contributed significantly to the global warming observed from 1975-1998, and, if so, please could you specify each natural influence and express its radiative forcing over the period in Watts per square metre. A: This area is slightly outside my area of expertise. When considering changes over this period we need to consider all possible factors (so human and natural influences as well as natural internal variability of the climate system). Natural influences (from volcanoes and the Sun) over this period could have contributed to the change over this period. Volcanic influences from the two large eruptions (El Chichon in 1982 and Pinatubo in 1991) would exert a negative influence. Solar influence was about flat over this period. Combining only these two natural influences, therefore, we might have expected some cooling over this period. Q: How confident are you that warming has taken place and that humans are mainly responsible? A: I’m 100% confident that the climate has warmed. As to the second question, I would go along with IPCC Chapter 9 – there’s evidence that most of the warming since the 1950s is due to human activity.

Al Gore Gets Booed

Yesterday, October 1, Al Gore spoke at a rally for Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek in Tampa, Florida. Gore was jeered and booed: “Global Warming is a fraud!”
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGe3yUtyJww]
Gore should be confronted everywhere he goes for being a Global Warming fraud and profiteer. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy! LOL
Lest we forget, this is the true face of the environmental movement:

Shocking Global Warming 10-10 Video

The Global Warming Taliban made this commercial, “No Pressure,” for its 10:10 Campaign — a worldwide campaign exhorting us to reduce our carbon emissions by at least 10% in 2010. The campaign was launched in London on September 1, 2009, and went global in mid-2010, with campaigns launching in around 12 countries. As of June 2010, 75,000 individuals, businesses, schools and organisations have joined the campaign and pledged to reduce their emissions by 10% in a year.
In this video, school children and adults who refuse to join 10:10 are blown up into bits, their blood and pieces of flesh spattering those nearby. This video/commercial is not a spoof. The people who put this together are serious and really really sick.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAz7jyG0qfw]
If the video’s been pulled by YouTube, you can see an Eyeblast version of it HERE.
Here’s what Wikipedia says about the commercial:

On Friday October 1, 2010, 10:10 released a short film in which people, including schoolchildren, are graphically blown to pieces for not taking action on climate change. The four-minute video ends with the words “Cut your carbon by 10%. No pressure”. Written by Richard Curtis and Franny Armstrong, directed by Dougal Wilson, and featuring celebrities Gillian Anderson, David Ginola, Peter Crouch and Radiohead, the film has been described as ‘attention-grabbing’ and ‘pretty edgy’ It aimed to challenge the “no pressure” attitude often displayed both by governments and individuals, since 10:10 are reported as saying that there are just four years to stabilise carbon emissions.

“Doing nothing about climate change is still a fairly common affliction, even in this day and age. What to do with those people, who are together threatening everybody’s existence on this planet? Clearly we don’t really think they should be blown up, that’s just a joke for the mini-movie, but maybe a little amputating would be a good place to start? […] We ‘killed’ five people to make No Pressure – a mere blip compared to the 300,000 real people who now die each year from climate change.” –Franny Armstrong, founder of 10:10

“I was very happy to get blown up to save the world.” -Jamie Glover, the child-actor who plays the part of Philip in No Pressure

Although originally planned to be shown in cinema and television advertisements, 10:10 removed the film from their website and YouTube later on October 1st following negative publicity, and placed a notice on their website saying, “Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn’t and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended. […] At 10:10 we’re all about trying new and creative ways of getting people to take action on climate change. Unfortunately in this instance we missed the mark. Oh well, we live and learn.”

H/t beloved fellow (we miss you!) Will.
