Manbearpig out of the bag - I'm super serial!

For those late to the party, the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia was hacked a few days ago by some unknown Russians. A large datadump hit the internet very soon after, which included some 60mb composed mostly of text files - including a huge number of emails between Anthropogenic Global Warming proponent "scientists". Many of the emails between the "scientists" were instructions and suggestions to other scientists to hide or otherwise obfuscate data, outright lie, delete dissenting information, and paint an all-around picture of AGW proponents as simply manufacturing data to support their frenetic quest.

Many snippets of the emails with links and summaries here:

Often referenced in the East Anglia emails and data is Michael Mann. Michael Mann is the individual responsible for the so-called "hockey stick" graph used in Al Gore's propaganda film "An Inconvenient Truth".

Which, naturally, was in large part fabricated.
Among the complaints and concerns were that the data (much involving tree ring samples) was not shared or objectively reviewed. No one outside the priesthood of global warming was allowed access to the data, and heretics were actively squelched. Furthermore, their efforts at doing real research were stymied as the criterion for "peer review" were modified.

The short version: you need to be peer-reviewed to be viewed as a reputable scientist. So in order to prevent reputable arguments against global warming canon, heretics were simply denied peer review. Ta-da! No more "reputable" scientists coming out against global warming... even though some 35,000 have signed petitions against it.

See how easy it is to make it look settled when you simply control the data?
From the AGW site: More specifically, 97% of climate scientists actively publishing climate papers endorse the consensus position.

With no recognition from the church of global warming, dissenters were all heretics spouting apocrypha. And of course, as the data is shown to be manufactured, it's very easy to dispute.

Now I'll do it:

All scientists are opponents of anthropogenic global warming. And in order for any counterclaim to be reputable and worthy of consideration by science, you'll have to be published in a peer-reviewed professional blog. Namely this one. See how easy it is to manufacture consensus?

The myriad of individuals showing up in the datadump also get more interesting as time goes by:


All of this would be simply entertaining academic infighting were it mathematicians bickering over solving Fermat's Theorem.

But how it applies to all of us out here in the non-academic world is that right now there are international discussions about Cap & Trade and Carbon Tax. The idea behind those is that governments regulate the amount of carbon emissions that individuals can put out. That's how much you breathe, how much you burn, how much your business emits. If you accept the fallacy that carbon dioxide is a bad thing, it starts to sound like a good idea.
Some of the facts are that carbon dioxide levels rise after temperature increases. And plants need it to breathe.

The sun influences global temperatures much more than does the amount of CO2 that humans put into the atmosphere, and the recent solar cycles have been of notice to both those who follow climate (and aren't blinded by their orthodox theology) and those who are concerned about the solar ebb for the last few years.

But the most important words were two paragraphs ago: governments regulate.

The idea is that governments must control the amount of CO2 produced. AGW theory supposes that all CO2 is bad, and therefore must be controlled. This gives governments a new control mechanism, all "for our own good." It is one where if governments don't begin to act in a dictatorial fashion, we will all die, and thus those powerful men in government know best for us, and they know they must act - even against us - for we are too stupid to see the truth that they must lead us.

Reread genocidal maniac Holdren's email. I'll wait.

AGW theory creates a zero-sum game for the world, and creates a system by which global government, whether through treaties or outright, is created in order to "save the world". The do-gooder intentions of those masters of men then becomes to "save us" from their fabricated crisis. In order to not have great sections of the world simply revolt - i.e. developing nations - they establish global carbon credits, by which poorer developing nations are simply paid to halt their development. They're given unearned riches and wealth simply for being poor, while their development of their people is retarded, but certainly rewarded for their rulers.

The global carbon credit market will also benefit those businesses (like GE), who are the first in bed with government. This is why GE has been conducting such propaganda scams as "Green Week" on NBC, and why GE is now producing the CFL light bulbs (in China, of course) that the US govt. has mandated for us.

Were this about saving the environment, everyone would get behind it. Why? Because it's good sense. If it weren't about handing over govt. power, people would go out of their way to do more environmentally friendly activities in their daily lives - people bend over backwards to recycle.

(It is economical and ecologically friendly in the case of metals, but that's about it.)

People want more fuel-efficient cars because it's cheaper. Everyone wants more energy-efficient homes because they cost less in the long run. Everyone wants to pay less and use less (it leaves more for other things), and a lot of people are willing to go the extra mile to keep Iron Eyes Cody from crying (even if he wasn't a Native American and was a fraud).

If the science were actually discussed (rather than hushed up) and we didn't simply tolerate the lie spouted by modern-day orthodox druids who advocate Malthusian exterminations, forced abortions, and sterilization to "save the planet", and we didn't put up with the propaganda spouted by a company that serves to make millions from our tax dollars, this would be an important issue. Right now, it's an eggregious example of science, government, and business collaborating to force things upon not only citizens of the US, but of the entire world.
For one parallel example, right now, we put up with things like ethanol, which cost 3 gallons of petrochemicals to produce 4 gallons of ethanol, plus the added economic and environmental cost of further refinement and production, at a return of 10% or less gas mileage and with added damage to automotive components. Thus, it destroys cars which take more economic and environmental assets to maintain, and it pollutes at a higher rate due to the loss of gas mileage. There's also the loss of food production, both in sweet corn and in feed corn.

The local government stooges benefit by reelection by bribing their constituents at the expense of the nation, the constituents and their businesses in bed with the govt benefit from having the force of government behind the government mandated sale of their product, and environmentalists get to claim victory and advance politically, even though they do so detrimentally to the planet. The winners are the conspirators. The losers are everyone else.

Hero of the Day

Give 'er one! Kill!

From the AP.

The gunman was struck four times by a civilian police officer who also was wounded herself. Authorities said Kimberly Munley fired on the suspect just three minutes after the gunfire began, and base officials said her efforts ended the crisis. Munley was recovering Friday at a hospital and was in stable condition.

"It was an amazing and aggressive performance by this police officer," Cone said.

Reminds me quite a bit of Jeanne Assam at the New Life Church shooting in Colorado.

I already liked Penn Jillette's idea of arming every woman in the US (because women don't cause violent crime). Now I like it even more.

Obviously Officer Munley knows what makes the grass grow.

Putting rounds on target, she almost made Major Maliki Nadal Hasan a good jihadi.

Reverend Wright: A Shaper of Obama

Here is a good reason why Americans need to question everything about their federal government. The following are a collection of Reverend Wright's comments from a speech he gave at the Monthly Review. Here we go:

"This magazine unflinchingly has tackled the tough issues from McCarthyism to militarism, from the Chinese revolution through the Canadian revolution to the Cuban revolution, from the lies told by United States presidents to the lies told by the United States media. We celebrate tonight six decades of dedicated service."

The Monthly Review is a socialist magazine here's the link.
I guess progressives make sure to celebrate six decades of service for all socialist endeavors see:

Wait there's more:

"You stayed up front. Your starting point is, quote, no nonsense Marxism, unquote. But you dispel all the negative images we have been programmed to conjure up with just the mention of that word "Socialism" or "Marxism."

Great so we have a news publication that pushes Marxism, I have no problem with free speech but we need to remember who this guy preached to for 20 years. If you need a reminder Rev. Wright preached to the Obama family for 20 years.

More Rev. Wright:

"Grateful for the opportunity to bring you a word of Thanksgiving from those who don't ordinarily get a hearing unless they go along with the program, sing in tune with whatever is the popular tune and stay in lockstep with the political pundits who tell us what is politically correct, what is permissible and what will be tolerated from a person of color in this land, the land of the greed and the home of the brave excuse me, the land of the greed and home of the slave."

If he feels this way he's free to leave the country. I certainly won't keep him here if he hates America so much. America has always been about making your own mark and doing whatever it is that makes you happy. We have the unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Unfortunately, the pursuit of happiness doesn't always result in happiness and I, for one, can attest to the fact.

More from the Reverend:

"For the people. My work with liberation theology, with Latin American theologians, with the Black Theology Project and what the Cuban Council of Churches taught me 30 years ago the importance of Marx and the Marxist analysis of the sociology's of the vulnerable and the oppressed who were trying desperately to break free of the political economies undergirded by this country that were choking them and cutting off any hope of a possible future where all of the people would benefit. My exposure to the FMLN in El Salvador, the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and my presence at the 15th Jamahiriya in Libya taught me what I have read in the pages of the Monthly Review which is as Joshua Stanton says, though we need not always agree with one another, we must do the work necessary to at least understand one another.

Only in America can we not always agree with each other yet still have the freedom to do so. Try making your ideas known in Communist China, or in Cuba and see where it gets you. Most likely in prison or shot I would think. All those places Rev. Wright mentions try making your opinion known there. I would also like to see him show me a model of a Marxist Utopia. It doesn't exist nor can it exist. Marxism is about control, it suppresses free thinking, the economy, and religion.

A utopia is funded upon the idea that every person can be the same. When I say same I mean have the same interest, the same aptitude, the same emotional response, the same belief, the and same religion. A common sense, rational person can tell you this can never be. People are different. We all have different interest, beliefs, emotional responses, mental aptitudes and different religions. The Founding Fathers knew this to be the case. That is why they made America to be a land of opportunity. It might not be possible for us all to be a Bill Gates, however, that one Bill Gates gives the American economy thousands of jobs and provides unlimited services to the American population as a whole.

The fact is Reverend Wright doesn't espouse the views of the Founding Father's. He wants to handcuff the many so that the needs of the few are met. His policies are designed to destroy this country's greatness and turn us all into wards of the all powerful state. A member of his congregation for 20 years now sits in the Oval Office as President of the United States. Through our Czar Wars articles you have seen first hand what type of people our president has surrounded himself with in his administration. Now you have had a more in depth look at a man who helped shaped the views of President Barrack Hussein Obama.

What will you do now America. Today votes are being cast across the nation. Whose side are you on? The Founding Fathers or on the side of the totalitarian progressives?
