Anthropogenic Global Warming

DDT and Malaria

The Hope and Change Presidency.  The economy, foreign policy, domesticm policy, Afstan, cash for clunkers, spendulous, cap and trade, health care reform – pick whichever seems the most important to you and run with it.

Cold Fusion gets an honorable mention, but didn’t quite make the grade to be one of the big 3.  Plus, I needed room to take a gratuitous swipe at the magic unicorn of hope n change.

The difference between AGW and cold fusion is that Fleischmann and Pons, original claimants of cold fusion technology, made their materials and methods available for widespread scrutiny.  This scrutiny quickly led to objective observers finding problems with the methodologies and conclusions, and challenging them.  If only a similar tract had been followed in the AGW debate – who knows how many trillions of dollars could have been saved and used for something productive.  As for that “making your data and methods available for others to replicate your work” – it’s really not that novel of a concept – it’s called the scientific method.

Joblessness for 16-to-24-year-old black men has reached Great Depression proportions — 34.5 percent in October, more than three times the rate for the general U.S. population. And last Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that unemployment in the District, home to many young black men, rose to 11.9 percent from 11.4 percent, even as it stayed relatively stable in Virginia and Maryland.

What an Inconvenient Truth

Really looks like.

However, we do now have hundreds of emails that give every appearance of testifying to concerted and coordinated efforts by leading climatologists to fit the data to their conclusions while attempting to silence and discredit their critics. In the department of inconvenient truths, this one surely deserves a closer look by the media, the U.S. Congress and other investigative bodies.

I haven’t posted on this, since it’s everywhere in the blogosphere.  But this WSJ article does a nice job of distilling down the facts to a short news article.  The real fun, of course, will begin when/if actual investigations move forward.  I kind of think real investigations will happen, despite the attempt put forward by the MSM to ignore it, or the attempt by liberal bloggers to call it a “nontroversy”.

Global warming fanatics and Creationists – 2 groups of people working within a belief system rather than science.  It’s sort of funny that Wee King Charlie hates Creationists so, while belonging to a cult that it equally devoid of scientific merit, no?  Even more funny is when Crazy Charlie compares AGW Deniers to Creationists – insisting that it’s the scpetics who are distorting the science.  Funny, recent event would seem to suggest otherwise.

As a free bonus, I give you 4 words to combat global warming:

Nuclear energy, cow farts.

We need more of 1, and fewer of the other.  I’ll leave you to sort out the details.
