The Great Betrayal Of The Tax And Traitors

manbearpig1

To fully appreciate the irresponsibility and immorality of these traitors you have to read…. Paul Krugman’s article in The New York Times….What? You thought I was talking about the Republican Cap and Tax 8?

Please! Don’t you know what a huge betrayal to Mother Earth, these nay votes were? I’ll let  Krugman explain:

…212 representatives voted no. A handful of these no votes came from representatives who considered the bill too weak, but most rejected the bill because they rejected the whole notion that we have to do something about greenhouse gases. And as I watched the deniers make their arguments, I couldn’t help thinking that I was watching a form of treason — treason against the planet.

How shall we avenge Gaia!

To fully appreciate the irresponsibility and immorality of climate-change denial, you need to know about the grim turn taken by the latest climate research. The fact is that the planet is changing faster than even pessimists expected: ice caps are shrinking, arid zones spreading, at a terrifying rate. And according to a number of recent studies, catastrophe — a rise in temperature so large as to be almost unthinkable — can no longer be considered a mere possibility. It is, instead, the most likely outcome if we continue along our present course.

So, so grim…so so terrifying!!! We are all going to die! Take those polar ice caps, for example…the pessimists never imagined that even in the Antarctica, ice melts at a hair raising and terrifying rate….in the Spring and Summer. In the Fall and Winter…PHEW! It comes back….because it gets super cold again…but don’t relax….because in a few more months…you guessed it! Ice starts melting again…it’s a friggin’ terrifying nightmare out there.

And those recent studies  he alludes to…were those studies done before or after the suppressed study done by senior research analyst at the Environmental Protection Agency, Alan Carlin? Because his studies purportedly revealed :

EPA’s reliance on out-of-date research, uncritical recycling of United Nations data, and omission of new developments, including a continued decline in global temperatures and a new consensus that future hurricane behavior won’t be different than in the past.

Well tell the MIT researchers that!

…researchers at M.I.T., who were previously predicting a temperature rise of a little more than 4 degrees by the end of this century, are now predicting a rise of more than 9 degrees. Why? Global greenhouse gas emissions are rising faster than expected; some mitigating factors, like absorption of carbon dioxide by the oceans, are turning out to be weaker than hoped; and there’s growing evidence that climate change is self-reinforcing — that, for example, rising temperatures will cause some arctic tundra to defrost, releasing even more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Temperature increases on the scale predicted by the M.I.T. researchers and others would create huge disruptions in our lives and our economy. As a recent authoritative U.S. government report points out, by the end of this century New Hampshire may well have the climate of North Carolina today, Illinois may have the climate of East Texas, and across the country extreme, deadly heat waves — the kind that traditionally occur only once in a generation — may become annual or biannual events.

In other words, we’re facing a clear and present danger to our way of life, perhaps even to civilization itself.

Well, that is truly alarming…..wow!

Steven Goddard from Watt’s Up With That? examined the MIT study:

So what has changed since 2003 to cause the scientists at MIT’s “Centre for Global Climate Change” to believe the world is going to boil over this century and send billions of us directly to a toasty demise similar to our featured movie?

Since 2003, global temperatures have been dropping.

Arctic ice extent is at the highest late May levels in the AMSR-E satellite record.

Antarctic ice has broken the record for greatest extent ever recorded.

January, 2008 broke the record for the most snow covered area ever measured in the Northern Hemisphere.

Go ahead and check out the charts and graphs at Watts Up With That if you need a visual aid. Goddard continues:

Given that the observed trends are exactly opposite what the MIT models have predicted, one might have to ask what they have observed since 2003 to more than double their warming estimates, and where their 90% confidence value comes from?

The study, carried out in unprecedented detail, projected that without “rapid and massive action” temperatures worldwide will increase by as much as 7.4C (13.3F) by 2100, from levels seen in 2000.

This study has a strong scent of GIGO (garbage, in garbage out.)

Oh.

Krugman railed against the “deniers”:

Indeed, if there was a defining moment in Friday’s debate, it was the declaration by Representative Paul Broun of Georgia that climate change is nothing but a “hoax” that has been “perpetrated out of the scientific community.” I’d call this a crazy conspiracy theory, but doing so would actually be unfair to crazy conspiracy theorists. After all, to believe that global warming is a hoax you have to believe in a vast cabal consisting of thousands of scientists — a cabal so powerful that it has managed to create false records on everything from global temperatures to Arctic sea ice.

Yet Mr. Broun’s declaration was met with applause.

Excellent…there’s hope.

You know what the most terrifying thing of all is to the global warming alarmists?

More bad news for the media.

Fifty-four percent (54%) of U.S. voters say the news media make global warming appear worse than it really is.

Only 21% say the media present an accurate picture, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Ouch.

Today’s Enchanted Media Moment

obama-enchanted2

The Politico brings us:

Politics of personal perfection

Let’s be honest: Barack Obama is better than you are.

He’s a better father — taking breaks from running the world to cheer on his daughters at soccer and basketball games.

He’s a better husband — zipping his wife off for dinner in New York and Paris.

He’s got a better diet — nibbling on vegetables from his homegrown garden to keep his love handles in check.

And he’s got a terrific jump shot.

You? Not so much.

Call it the politics of personal perfection.

If you’re looking for a punchline, you’ll look in vain. The writer really believes that Obama is all that. And he cites other people who think so, too:

“He’s so g-ddamned smart and such a good representative for the country,” said Alan Siegel, a corporate branding expert and CEO of the marketing firm Siegel & Gale. “I admire him.”

“They’ve just done so many things so well,” said Susan Hodgkinson, principal of The Personal Brand Co. “You have to tip your hat to them and say, ‘Brilliant.’”

Wowowowow! Just looking at the news, today, you could say he did a “brilliant” job picking his Supreme Court nominee.

His support for the Honduran lefty despot as opposed to the Honduran Constitution was certainly “brilliant”….

Inviting Iranian Dips from a brutal, tyrannical regime to a hot dog party was uber “brilliant…

And I guess it’s true that he’s destroying the American  economy and way of life in a “brilliant” manner…

Yay! I can’t wait until I have to be on the public dole for everything. I’ll lose weight and be as skinny as the Obamas!

Former President Bush, the author is careful to note, couldn’t even pronounce “nuclear”.

The Violent Crackdown In Iran Continues

iran protesters

It was quiet for a couple of days in Iran, and recent celebrity deaths had threatened to suck the oxygen out of its freedom movement’s momentum, but late yesterday, news came out of fresh protests, along with the now expected gov. brutal response. The protesters in Iran are a tenacious lot if the violent crackdown of last week didn’t stop them.  Atlas Shrugs, of course is on top of it, with pictures, videos, and rundown of the weekend’s events, here, and here.

Canada Free Press has a report from Toronto based blogger, Sayeh Hassan:

Arrest of protestors in Iran continues on a major scale.  According to news from “Human Rights and Democracy Activists” in Iran not only are people being arrested on the streets, but security forces are actually raiding hospitals, rounding up wounded protestors and taking them to “unknown locations.”

Security forces and Basij are also raiding peoples’ homes, in search of protestors.  At night they raid peoples’ homes who shout “Allaho Akbar” or “Down with Dictator” on their rooftops, arrest people and take them to unknown locations.  Names of a few individuals who have been arrested so far are Mr. Akbar Aghayi (27), Mr. Omid Khatami (26), Mr. Ali Aghili (18) and Mr. Masoud Asgari.  However these are only a few names, from hundreds of people who have been arrested so far.

You can sign a petition directed toward the International Court of Justice to investigate the crimes committed by Khamenei, here.

Another petition, Help Stop the Slaughter of Iranian Freedom Seekers can be signed, here.
