Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on November 29, 2009 by Allahpundit

“By offering concrete emission targets last week, the United States and China have resuscitated global climate talks that were headed toward an impasse. But the details that have yet to be resolved — including the money that industrialized countries would offer poorer ones as part of an agreement — suggest a political deal remains a heavy lift for the 192 countries set to convene in Copenhagen in little more than a week…

“Keya Chatterjee, the U.S. director for the World Wildlife Fund climate change program, likened the developments to ‘a phoenix . . . rising from the ashes.’ She added that, under a best-case scenario, ‘It’s not a deal that’s going to solve the problem of climate change a hundred percent. . . . But it is a deal that’s going to create a foundation and an international architecture for resolving this issue over time.’

“A senior Obama administration official offered a more cautious assessment: ‘There’s a very real chance of getting this done, but hurdles remain.’”

***
“The reason why even the Guardian’s George Monbiot has expressed total shock and dismay at the picture revealed by the documents is that their authors are not just any old bunch of academics. Their importance cannot be overestimated, What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“Professor Philip Jones, the CRU’s director, is in charge of the two key sets of data used by the IPCC to draw up its reports. Through its link to the Hadley Centre, part of the UK Met Office, which selects most of the IPCC’s key scientific contributors, his global temperature record is the most important of the four sets of temperature data on which the IPCC and governments rely – not least for their predictions that the world will warm to catastrophic levels unless trillions of dollars are spent to avert it…

“Our hopelessly compromised scientific establishment cannot be allowed to get away with a whitewash of what has become the greatest scientific scandal of our age.”

***
“They even include threats of violence. One American academic wrote to Prof Jones: ‘Next time I see Pat Michaels [a climate sceptic] at a scientific meeting, I’ll be tempted to beat the crap out of him. Very tempted.’

“Dr Michaels, tracked down by this newspaper to the Cato Institute in Washington DC where he is a senior fellow in environmental studies, said last night: ‘There were a lot of people who thought I was exaggerating when I kept insisting terrible things are going on here.

“‘This is business as usual for them. The world might be surprised but I am not. These guys have an attitude.’”

***
“No matter what our climate czar may insist, climate science and Copenhagen are now under a giant cloud. In fact, as Hume implies, the situation is far more serious than that, because what has been revealed is what strange bedfellows science and politics are in this era. The relationship between politicians and scientists today is not entirely unlike the relationship between scientists and the clergy during the days of Galileo. And the politicians of today know about as much about the science as the bishops of Galileo’s time did, although our politicians are perfectly willing to exploit the science of which they are ignorant and the scientists too often perfectly willing to be complicit in their own exploitation

“But in an era when we no longer think the world is flat, it’s time to have open, transparent science. It’s an absolute necessity if we are to have any confidence at all in the results – and in how we are spending the gigantic sums our leaders seem to demand of us.

“Toward that end, I have a simple recommendation. Postpone the UN Climate Change Conference, scheduled to begin in Copenhagen on December 7. Give it another year or two for people to examine the science in the open. Otherwise, this will be seen as one of history’s great boondoggles.”

I say let Copenhagen go on. Let everyone there hang his political capital out there like his Johnson in front of a meat cleaver. Let’s see all of you talk high and mightily about “climate change” and “settled science” and see if you can tiptoe past this minefield. This hurricane ought to be about a Category 5 by the time Dec 7 rolls around. FDR was surely prophetic when he said that’s a date that’ll live in infamy, for more than one reason.

Global warming is regarded by the sheeple as true, by those who can think for themselves as false and by the power mad and money grubbers as … … useful.
- Seneca the Younger paraphrased

What would be the effect of this Global Warming coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth. Al Gore and the Global Warming fraudsters converted simple and falsified changes in the weather into an engine for enslaving mankind to filch wealth and power to themselves. They, in fact, constitute the real Anti-Scientists.
- Thomas Jefferson paraphrased

The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church.

If Ferdinand Magellan was alive today he would probably say “The Church of Global Warming says the earth is heating up, but I know that it is not, for I have seen the snow and ice and have felt their cold, and I have more faith in snow and ice than in the Church of Global Warming and it’s High Priests.”

Wethal on November 29, 2009 at 9:58 PM

If people go into Copenhagen just pretending nothing has happened, they’re just going to divide the population of their countries further. People who already suspect that science has little to do with what is going on there will just see their suspicions validated. People who get their news from sources that aren’t covering or barely covering the CRU hacking will continue to believe wholeheartedly in a coming crises. And it will be harder than ever to talk with one another.

As several have already pointed out, it would be great if the leftists keep pushing forward on this issue. It ensures they will publicly hang themselves with their own words and will drive the irrational democrats and Obama down another 10 points. It will provide the republicans a blank check to roll back everything leftist, and to take a real good cut out of the DC bureaucracy and leftist money machine.

This was the greatest hack in history. It’s like D-Day.

Very lofty sentiments but, as in the case of those who approvingly say Osama Obama’s “health” plan will damage Democrats, I call BS.

Both of these lunatic endeavors will do more damage to the public than to their enablers.

Somehow, these two catastrophes — and the impending financial meltdown being pushed ever closer by the Chicago Jesus and the greedy, America-hating fools in Congress — must be stopped before their provisions are enforced.

After the fact “I-told-you-sos” are meaningless when the totalitarian thugs have their agendas firmly in place.

macncheez on November 29, 2009 at 10:17 PM

A book that will not now make the bestseller list: Canadian environmental activists Hoggan and Littlemore pull no punches in this spirited indictment of global warming deniers. Their well-sourced research spotlights premeditated prevarications about the threat of greenhouse gas emissions by the oil and coal industry, in league with junk scientists, compliant conservative politicians and unsavory public relations practitioners. Persistent obfuscation of science by these anti-environment players is further abetted, say the authors, by a manipulated media that, in a misguided effort toward journalistic balance, pairs scientific certainty about an encroaching climate crisis with quotations from people who make a living denying it. Readers predisposed to believe the worst about the oil, coal and electric industries will find their fears buttressed by the book’s detailed overview of an orchestrated climate coverup by Astroturf (fake grassroots) organizations, right-wing think tank echo chambers, the tens of millions of industry dollars poured into primarily Republican campaign coffers and the PR profession’s Orwellian use of language. But global warming skeptics might also be swayed by the detailed dissection of an ongoing campaign to convince the public that climate change is still unproven. (Nov.)

What was it that Obama was saying about restoring Science to its rightful place again?

Hellrider on November 29, 2009 at 10:33 PM

As a former research scientist, I can easily buy into the concept of climate change, and even that of global warming. Plenty of non biased data exists to support both of these theories through the eons. My skepticism comes from using ‘Anthropogenic.’ I’ll even add on a minor argument that some global warming is preferred to a new ice age in terms of the human misery index.

One large problem is that the climate computer models make no useful predictions; thus the theory is full of holes. We use the most advanced supercomputers on the planet to simulate our warheads in detonation for reliability purposes — they want to physically test a few to see how their models are stacking up against real warheads. Then we are to believe that the climate models, covering vastly more independent variables over a much larger time frame, on slower computers, can reliably do the job.

One other minor point about Obama & the conference — even if he agrees to signing the treaty it still must be ratified by Congress to take force.

you dupes are hilarious. so used yet so willing.

Also:

According to a recent article from Bloomberg.com –

“Government officials and activists flying to Bali, Indonesia, for the United Nations meeting on climate change will cause as much pollution as 20,000 cars in a year.

The delegates each will produce an average 4.07 metric tons of carbon dioxide, or CO2, to reach the resort island 950 kilometers (600 miles) from Jakarta, according to estimates e- mailed to Bloomberg by the UN agency holding the conference

So willing…how sad

CWforFreedom on November 29, 2009 at 10:36 PM

The government desperately needs global warming as an excuse to take over industry and tax us into poverty. As Rahm Emanuel said, no crisis should go to waste and even if global warming isn’t really a crisis, the administration will go on insisting it is because they can’t let this opportunity go to waste.

Wethal on November 29, 2009 at 10:18 PM

That’s an interesting comment by Leonardo. (It’s also an odd person to quote!) I haven’t read the book, but note that the authors here are environmental activists. Like the people they criticize, they too have every incentive to push one particular position in the climate change debate, whether it is true or not. This is something that people don’t think about often enough, although perhaps that will change now.

If the coal industry comes out with a report saying CO2 isn’t a problem, it is absolutely correct for you to look at that report with suspicion. But if a government (like the UN) or an environmental organization comes out with a report essentially saying “we must make all these changes that (happen to) benefit us because of CO2,” you should look at that report with just as much skepticism as you would apply to a report by the coal industry that said the opposite.

But at this point, if the health care bill and cap-and-tax are enacted on fraudulent foundations, what choice will we have but to push back by other than political means? Policy differences are one thing; giving up liberty based on naked lies is another beast altogether. What would the map of the un-United States look like in the event that secession is necessary? I ask that in a clinical, non-hysterical tone. Is it at least time to start asking the question? Are we at the point where it is irresponsible to not at least broach the subject? Do we think that there is even general political and moral will to stop the break-up if it were to occur? Just asking.

1. You missed a QOTD Chair of the IPCC.:

Hotel guests should have their electricity monitored; hefty aviation taxes should be introduced to deter people from flying; and iced water in restaurants should be curtailed, the world’s leading climate scientist has told the Observer.

Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warned that western society must undergo a radical value shift if the worst effects of climate change were to be avoided. A new value system of “sustainable consumption” was now urgently required, he said.

They are almost giddy with power.

There is little time left.

Obama will do anything, hopefully Congress will stop him.

Hey,come to think of it,and after checking the list,
I don`t think Copenhagen has been belittled and insulted
yet by Team Obama!!

Jus sayin!!

Ha!!! I was actually going to have a 2nd point. But by the time I finished I was so depressed I forgot it.

Maybe something like, I’ve been following this stuff closely for 7-8 years….and I’ve always thought that it was a race between the truth of temperatures, and the Politicians.

The totally best scenario would be to have 6 inches of snow on DC and NYC in June. They only understand what they can see and touch.

But, I think the Pols have a good chance of winning. Obviously, these guys are doing healthcare in the face of opposition, so they are used to it.

They know that they’ll wind up on top…the patronage of Green Jobs, the cash from the Crony Corporations. It is all coming together nicely…the whole Global thing is fun for them…it feeds their egos.

Read through a link on Drudge that in Australia because the liberal party pushed through their “Crap and Tax” that 5 members of that party resigned in disgust. Reading I got the impression it would be the same as 5 Democratic Senators resigning and leaving office here.

Marcus on November 29, 2009 at 11:01 PM

The Australian version of Cap and Tax (the ETS) hasn’t been passed yet. Basically the Opposition leader of the Liberal party (Aussie Conservative party) did a deal with the Government Labour party to get the ETS rammed through before Copenhagen. This caused a revolt in the Liberal party and resulted in the top five members of the Liberal leadership stepping down from their shadow cabinet positions in protest and now the leader of the party is facing a leadership challenge which in all likely hood will see him dumped as leader of the party. A better comparison here would be if the House minority leader did a deal with the Democrats to get to get similar legislation passed and the next five senior Republican Congressmen stepped down from their committee assignments in protest and then moved have the minority leader replaced.

publiuspen on November 30, 2009 at 12:10 AM

Here is Monday morning’s flustercluck cluck :
1. Waiting for TOTUS to address the troops, talk his Afghan policy, countdown clock and all
2. Rumsfeld+Cheney+Bush let Osama escape to Pakistan
3. Bush admin caused Katrina disaster. Katrina was not even a hurricane, a judge says so too
4. Huckabee is responsible for death of 4 police officers. The face of the perp will not be shown on TV but Huckabee’s 400 lb images will be all over
5. The health bill is coming…oooooohhh yesssss
6. Clips of jealous women bitching about Sarah Palin
7. Clips of insecure males bitching about Sarah Palin on Sunday talk shows
8. Obama is awsome OMG he even played with his puppy while taking care of the whole big world
9. Right wing bumpkins do not believe in AGW. Fox hacked computers of a renowned British University and an
( American) scientisty looking dude with a clipped fake snobbish British accent will explain how smart he is and how dumb rest of the world is
10. Obama will address the troops because Bush left him with 2 wars
11. The economy is booming, people are stoopid
12. Health care is commmiinnng, repubs are bock clockers

Did I leave out anything?

“One American academic wrote to Prof Jones: ‘Next time I see Pat Michaels [a climate sceptic] at a scientific meeting, I’ll be tempted to beat the crap out of him. Very tempted.’”

Which “One American academic”? Name names! These thugs need to be called out.

KS Rex on November 30, 2009 at 12:30 AM

Why doesn’t Allahpundit have a post about Huckabee’s clemency towards the alleged cop killer in Tacoma?

You know if Palin had pardoned the SOB, Allahpundit would have a post up front and center, opining that her career is over.

where’d my post go ?

macncheez on November 30, 2009 at 1:01 AM

These goofs are always mandating changes that end up coming back to bite them in the butt, and they say doctors have god complexes.

My guess would be that the man in question is only one of several suspects the police are looking for. If he is determined to be the true suspect, I am sure AP will post accordingly.

Cindy Munford on November 30, 2009 at 1:17 AM

I think it’s time to put all these ‘Global Warming’ activists on notice that they are going to be personally and financially responsible for the harm to the global economy that they are causing…

Starting with Al Gore, of course.

… It’s not like we don’t know their names or anything.

Where’s “StarFleet_Dude” to tell us how the science is settled and we’re all crazy to deny AGW? Did he get banned?

If it were my decision, the principal figures in the GW scandal would probably have prices attached, most of all for having brought scientists and science into disrepute. Nor would the instructions aim at something clean and discreet. The greatest rewards would be offered for such endings as could not be denied to photographers, and as would satisfy and stupefy the viewers.

The Socialist-in-Chief isn’t going to let minor details like the will of the people, and a bunch of “scientists” exposed as frauds, stop him from moving forward with is plan to destroy our economy and bring the country to its knees. He’ll sign over our sovereignty in a New York minute.

My greatest dream would be that people would get it through their thick skulls that man, living on this planet is very, very recent. The Earth has done ebbs and flows of both iciness and hot-house warmth. But for some strange, idiotic, and I must say, the most narcissistic reason, we’ve come to believe that we control the force of nature…. Has not happened, will not happen.

Someone recently described Climate Change as, Climate Change Conspiracy, CCC. I thought it was a good label, the left do it all the time, as in, Global Warming to Climate Change.
