If At First You Can't Fool 'Em, Make The Lie Bigger

The algorians have not yet left the building. According to a Breitbart story, Algore is now claiming that, in the face of one of the coldest winters in the past twenty or so years, global warming is "significantly worse and unfolding more rapidly than those on the pessimistic side of the IPCC projections had warned us...."

Of course there is climate change. It's part of the nature of the planet and the solar system. We get periods of relative warmth and periods of relative cold, along with all the weather phenomena that are involved. These changes have to do with the relationships between Earth, the Sun and the other planets. These relationships, far too complex for a dopey politician like Algore to understand--or any of us, for that matter--cause a continually changing climate pattern that can't be altered significantly by anything mankind can do (short of destroying the planet by means of global nuclear war), and wouldn't matter much if it did.

The algorians are after political power; they're perpetrating this hoax for no other reason.

A far more healthy perspective on the state of the Earth is presented by Michael Crichton, author of many science-smart novels, including Andromeda Strain and Next. One of the best novels I've read in the past three or four years, is State of Fear, by Crichton. The novel, chuck full of references to real scientific, peer reviewed studies, tells a tale that illustrates the falsity of algorian claims quite thoroughly--one of the characters in the book could even be Algore.

Environmentalism As Religion is a speech given by Crichton, apparently derived to expound 'pon the issues raised in Fear.

While I disagree that government should create a "super EPA" to replace the current very political, very corrupt EPA, I agree with the facts Crichton uses to come to that conclusion. I'd see it as sufficient to trust land owners to find incentive in the ownership of their property, to keep it "clean." For those few who would ignore the long-term self interest of a clean property in favor of short term profit, I'd think tort lawsuits, brought by injured neighbors, to take care of these individuals by force of court decisions.

Algore, your time is up. While any number of deluded followers mouth your gospel, your group of true believers has assaulted the truth far too long, and the seams of your religion are splitting, along with those of your shirts. You know you're lying and the world's power-mad leaders know you're lying. The masses of overburdened taxpayers are beginning to realize it.

Not all men are "rational animals."

I have to send you this link so you can get an idea of how futile it is to change an idjits mind.

....Or a good hoax, TF.

See my next entry. Thanks.

I don't know about the masses of over-burdened taxpayers CH, out here they seem to be demanding that more be done, perhaps they haven't felt the full cost, that might sober them up a bit.

Col. Hogan said...

They haven't yet learned to link the high tax burden to the very wasteful method government uses to do things. Many American taxpayers haven't, either.

They have to understand that just about anything government does, would cost far less, and be of higher quality, if done privately, under the constraints of free market competition.

One just has to laugh at the one comment on the amarillo link:

" Go to your computers and type the words "global warming." "

This is basically what Naomi Oreskes did. Oreskes is the 'expert' (she's a history professor) that Al Gore cites in "Inconvenient Truth" that helped start and maintain the so called "consensus" of global warming.

Oreskes 'did a search' in order to come up with her predetermined 'consensus'. To her dismay and to Al Gore's, someone had the sense to check her premises. Guess what? She fudged the search and all Al Gore had to say was 'close enough'. Here's the whole ugly story:

And it's just the tip of the iceberg which is not melting. lol

For the full story on the hoax, check out Horner's "Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming"

Greens are Reds and Reds had the worst environments in the history of the planet. Still do... the ones that are left. (no pun intended)


Col. Hogan said...


Thanks fir the tip. That name sounds familiar, and I may already have read about her through another source. I'll check it out.

I've read through several sources that most of the "experts" cited by Algore are only peripherally familiar with the study of climate, or from another field altogether. Hence the need to silence or vilify opposition.

Kent C said...


My take on the matter:

While even the actual numbers were fudged, the manner of reporting the consensus should be an example of fallacious deductions in a logic 101 text.

The good professor came up with 928 documents that, as she reported did _not_ negate the idea of anthropogenic global warming. They also didn't negate the idea that god created the universe, or what came first the chicken or the egg.... :-) In actual fact only 13 documents explicitly upheld the view, 322 assumed implicitly the idea in one manner or another, the rest didn't even approach or mention the issue, yet much of the talk of consensus comes right from Gore's movie/book.

*Gore's latest book, "The Assault on Reason" ... an autobiography? :-) .. where he tries to assault those who were stupid enough to check his facts.

Col. Hogan said...

'Twas Christmas time, and I went to Barnes & Noble to buy some gifts (mostly for myself) and the first thing I saw on display just inside the door was "The Assault on Reason." When I realized who was the (alleged) author, my stomach turned.

If Algore ever knew anything about "reason," it was from third grade reading class--and he probably flunked.

"Oh!" said Algore Rosannadanna. Attack on reason. I thought you said attack on raisins........Never mind."

Unfortunately, despite the fact that Al Gore's movie was shown to be full of factual errors and that he hasn't got a clue what he's talking about. Despite the fact that in a few years it will become patently obvious that GW was a fraud along with all the fools who perpetrated the whole lie, Al Gore will go to his grave a rich man from his part in the hoax (unless something very unexpected happens in the meantime). Such is the nature of this perverse society in which we live.

Col. Hogan said...


While I'd like to see Algore completely discredited and exposed for the utter fraud he is, I'd rather just see the world's productive class ignore him and overwhelm his "ideas" with life-enhancing goods, services and information that'll render him and his fellow-travelers completely irrelevant. Or am I repeating myself?
