Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

It would appear he is nothing more than a lying hustler that knows how to deprive people of their money and raise funds for his Democratic party. He hasn’t held office so he doesn’t know how to govern but he sure knows how to shuck and jive. With that, he manages to raise funds from fellow lying hustlers to make TV ads that pertain to nothing to make himself look good over his opponent. Watch the movie and read the articles. Tell your friends and low info voters. We need this guy as governor like we need foot fungus.

Related to yesterday’s post on the matrix of lies: it may be sealed off so tightly in some areas that it is too late for reason to penetrate, and the “green” scam is a prime example. We already shut down the last U.S. factory manufacturing incandescent bulbs, last year.

And today: news that those “green” CFL bulbs are poisonous even before you break them and need a hazmat suit just to clean up the mess. They are, it turns out, carcinogenic from the moment you turn them on:

Peter Braun, who carried out the tests at the Berlin’s Alab Laboratory, said: “For such carcinogenic substances it is important they are kept as far away as possible from the human environment….”

Andreas Kirchner, of the Federation of German Engineers, said: “Electrical smog develops around these lamps.

This is apart from the fact that CFL bulbs don’t dim well and are extremely annoying to try and read by – prime headache material. My advice is go to the Dollar Store, early and often, and buy normal light bulbs until they are all gone. That’s the short term plan. The long term plan has to do more with overthrowing the government than shopping.

Senator calls for investigation of Al Gore!

Probably can’t happen until January, but we can wait – it will be here before we know it.

UPDATE: The Nine Lies of the Father of Climate Fraud

Al Gore Is Lying Low – For Good Reason

Hey speaking of profiting from a pack of lies, let’s not forget our local gal, Andrea “who likes to make money” McGimsey. Maybe there’s an area for investigation.

UPDATE II: A Pending American Temperaturegate. How much are you willing to pay in taxes to offset “global warming,” fellow Americans?

What Enron did for “corporate governance” and what Barack Obama did for “Harvard educated,” climate scientists are doing for, well, science:

Ignoring public concerns over the emails and IPCC errors was a public relations blunder, he and others at yesterday’s panel said.

Then again, “Scientists are not very good at public relations,” observed Cicerone, an atmospheric chemist and climate scientist.

By not “stepping up” to defend the general strength of climate science in the wake of recent public challenges, the panelists acknowledged, bloggers and television pundits have been free to spin the revelations as evidence that most climate science is now suspect. And it most assuredly is not, the panelists maintained.

The truth of the matter is that these scientists are pretty damn good at PR insofar as they have bluffed and bloviated their way to millions of dollars of grant money to conduct fraudulent research. What they are woefully bad at is scientific research:

In a statement the authors of the paper said: “Since publication of our paper we have become aware of two mistakes which impact the detailed estimation of future sea level rise. This means that we can no longer draw firm conclusions regarding 21st century sea level rise from this study without further work.

“One mistake was a miscalculation; the other was not to allow fully for temperature change over the past 2,000 years. Because of these issues we have retracted the paper and will now invest in the further work needed to correct these mistakes.”

That little detail of “temperature change over the past 2,000 years” is one I am certain might have eluded 50% of ninth graders taking Earth Science, so there is that. But the ninth graders don’t get a bullhorn to summon support for billions of dollars in new taxes on American consumers.

Thank goodness, “climate change” is being fully revealed as nonsense and Al Gore as the dumbest guy in the room, yet again.

Sincerely yours,

Joe

It’s really not so bad from indoors. Here are the views from the back door and front door respectively.

And while we’re enjoying this moment of shared challenges and best wishes from one to another, it is well that we bear in mind these words, written last year by yet another genius from the Kennedy clan:

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers…

Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.

RFK Jr. would be astonished to know that many kids still own sleds here in Virginia, if RFK Jr. was anything more than a salesman. Which he is not.

UPDATE: Let’s listen to what the Democrat leaders have to say. (Highly recommended viewing).

One of the most salient reasons for the scientific community to look elsewhere while climate science goes off the deep end with half truths is the way that science has evolved. I’m not talking about science in the labs of business, but “pure” science (though that modifier is perverse in the present day).

When someone investigated pure science years ago, it was because they were already successful in some other endeavor; science was essentially a hobby for the rich. Over the years though, as universities became more and more a part of the world, those who had no means became scientists, and investigated theories as professors and others and published papers. The problem with this is that those that were doing the research obtained grants to do the research. Now it has become a source of income and support. What does that do to corrupt “pure” science? It used to be that the scientist had no income based on what the scientist found.

Skip forward to today. On what does the vast majority of climate science depend, and thus the jobs of hundreds of climate scientists? At the very least, their livelihood depends on there being something that will encourage those that make grants to pay for the science. So what climate scientist would publish a paper that essentially says climate science is useless, because mankind as a whole has a minimal impact on climate and can do little to nothing about it? Only one who has no need for a job (which is now the exception rather than the rule).

The situation is worse than just a single scientist becoming more interested in making a living than the truth. When there are many scientists in the same boat, even if a scientist comes to his senses on a subject, he dare not challenge the established line. If he does he will likely be ridiculed and ostracized for his being out of step with the majority of the scientific community.

When science became a paid profession outside of the business world, it became of necessity corrupt. Those that are involved in the pursuit have a vested interest in seeing the outcome be worthy of publication and continued investment. Pure science is no longer pure, but is corrupted by the pursuit of money. That isn’t bad when a business is pursuing profit; at least when a business is pursuing profit, everyone knows to take what they say with a rather large grain of salt. The problem with science in academia is the hidden nature of the profit.

Go check out the amazing story at Blog Fu, some background on the 2007 Nobel Prize you probably were not aware of.

I am told, if you ever find a Nobel Prize – say at a yard sale – it is printed on a high quality parchment which serves a multitude of uses around the home and in the workshop.
