Video: Canadian citizen with giant carbon footprint pretty opinionated about California green initiative

posted at 9:51 pm on October 28, 2010 by Allahpundit

The One tried to warn us about shadowy foreigners interfering in our elections, didn’t he? And yet, we laughed at him.

Who’s laughing now?

I don’t know anything about the substance of the issue, though my inclination would be to assume Cameron’s full of it. But what’s interesting is that Cameron is a foreigner, a Canadian citizen, who withdrew his application for U.S. citizenship after Bush won reelection in 2004. So what business does he have telling Americans how to vote on anything? Do Americans appear in Canadian political ads?

Good points, but this is a special case: (1) Cameron’s palsy walsy with the governor, which makes him extra-special, and (2) from the looks of things, he’s personally generating most of California’s carbon emissions these days, so it’s only logical that he’d want a say in any environmental regulations on the ballot.

I wish I could tell you this is the most irritating Cameron-related news of the day, but … it gets worse. Much, much worse. Exit question: How tedious does your sci-fi franchise have to be to make another round of “Star Wars” movies sound good by comparison?

I like a good movie as much as anyone, a great story, fabulous effects, great directorial skills, but I avoided seeing AVATAR due to one thing and one thing only: far too much hype. It turned me off about the film and I’ve even avoided watching it on PPV ever since…my inability to suspend disbelief, I guess.

But what IS it with Hollywood people? Their assumption that their wealth and publicity privileges somehow imparts them with great insights on big issues — I realize not ALL people in entertainment are like that but so many of them are and you peek under the surface of all that glitz and you find really unpleasant, often quite foolish people.

It makes it more difficult every year to just enjoy the movies. I agree with AP here, that a new STAR WARS series sounds at least good escape material by comparison with Cameron’s “I’m King of The World” egomania.

I avoided seeing Avatar for the same reason. Films that are too preachy really grate on me, and they always short change good movie making for ‘The Message’. One notable exception was Dr Strangelove which had a ‘Message’ but the movie came first. Avatar from what I saw, was a lot of CGI and the same old story about evil westerners crushing the poor saintly natives under our industrial heel.

Avatar 2 is going to be about a guy who was paralyzed when he slaughtering people trying to save their planet from carbon dioxide. Then he get shipped off to a world where an evil corporate interest is sucking all the “bullcrapium” from the ocean floor, slowly killing all the lovable Swim-Fu people. THe guy gets to swim to make friends with the Swim-Fus, then they rebel and push the evil corporate people off the planet and save the “bullcrapium” from being harvested.

Avatar 3 is going to be about a guy who worked for “British Penublium Space Corp”, who was hurt when Space Rig 32 leaked anti-matter into space and contaminated several nearby planets. Guy from Rig joins forces with the once-docile “Democratians” on the planet to punish and destroy “British Penublium” and prevent all anti-matter mining.

Shut up you stupid moron! No one believes in AGW any more!

It’s interesting to see fewer and fewer of these types of posts here. Perhaps it is due to the fact that this year is on course to be the hottest global year ever recorded, thus driving a stake into the heart of the global-warming-has-reversed-iteself theme. This and the realization that the East Anglia affair has shown itself to be a non-issue with regard to climate science have rather muted the intensity of the debate at Hotair.

Now, the focus here seems to be on “hypocrites”, such as Cameron and Gore. Yes, they’re hypocrites, as am I (and many of you). Don’t know what that has to do with the science of AGW, though.
Well, I’m off to work in my carbon-belching Honda.

hottest global year ever recordedoakland on October 29, 2010 at 7:24 AM

Um. No.
Check out any old rocks lately?
They give you lots of information.
Like:
Amount of precipiation
Atmospheric conditions etc.
How ’bout NASA’s inaccurate satellite temp data that doesn’t account for the effect of clouds upon surface temperatures? How ’bout temp data sites near large urban areas not accounting for the heat island effect?
A lot of our historic temperature data is suspect.
Humans may be able to affect their microclimates & they can obviously affect local ecosystems, but this Gaia hypothesis is defunct garbage. Changing one thing in Earth’s climate system somewhere does not cause global changes so that the Earth is in ‘danger’.
This is boneheaded. The Earth is not one great big happy bunch of dominoes that when you knock one down, all the others will come crashing down unless ‘someone’ intervenes.
It’s BS.
And as I have said before, CO2 does not drive up temperatures in the troposphere.
Rising temperatures cause more CO2 to be ‘taken up’ by it.
Jesus H. Christ it’s like talking to a brick wall.

I thought Avatar was silly. How to Train Your Dragon had a better learn to live with what life gives you message and District 9 was a better alien themed movie about man’s “inhumanity”, though I’d still kill the “prawns”. I have a very strong self-preservation gene.

The Super La Nina and the Coming Winter:

“A super La Nina is developing. Historically, these strong La Nina events drop the Earth’s average temperature around one degree Fahrenheit, and the drop comes quickly. As a result, some of the same places that had record heat this summer may suffer through record cold this winter.”

slickwillie2001 on October 29, 2010 at 11:15 AM

Here’s the letter to the editor I wrote to the local paper in response to a high-school indoctrinate who completely lied about prop 23… it probably won’t be published so feel free to amend it and use if for your own purposes. Thanks.

I applaud Kasey Duval for getting involved in the political process, but if the student wants straightforward campaigning it would be wise to not misrepresent facts regarding current propositions. Proposition 23 does not require unemployment to remain under 5% for 4 quarters prior to implementing AB 32 (as Kasey states), but it does require that unemployment remain at or below the level it was when we voted the intense, new global warming regulations into place, for one year. That unemployment rate was 5.5% and we have, indeed, maintained that wonderfully low unemployment rate for 4 quarters in the past. In fact, according to the “Labor Force & Unemployment Data” page from the official State of California website, we maintained an unemployment rate below 5.5% for 12 consecutive quarters, between 2005 and 2007.
The reason we would postpone enactment of a law that would cause a 50% (or 67%) increase in electricity costs, increased costs for gas, diesel and a 57% increase (according to the California Air Resources Board (aka CARB)) in natural gas costs, coupled with a $500 million per year water tax is glaring; even Scott Pelley of CBS news reports that our current unemployment rate is near an incredible 22%. Over 1 million additional jobs will be destroyed by AB 32 according to UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education.
Proposition 23 would not repeal all environmental protections, as the scary political ads claim, it ONLY postpones enactment of new laws until the state is back on it’s proverbial feet for a year. California already has the strictest environmental laws in the country and those laws will remain in place.
Furthermore, while “Big Texas Oil” is demonized in the ads for backing the proposition, not a peep is mentioned about who is propping up the No on 23 campaign- that would be “Big Green Energy” through Thomas Steyer (a $33 billion dollar Green hedge fund manager who stands to profit from AB 32 and has put $2.5 million toward stopping Prop 23 and pledged an additional $2.5 million) and “Big Hollywood” through James Cameron (who backed out of a debate on climate change but invested $1 million to stop Prop 23 between flying around the world in jets.)
Kasey is correct that Proposition 23 isn’t presented in a straightforward manner, but the people confusing facts are those committed to defeating the legislation. Please vote YES on Prop 23.

I’ve seen that for many science teachers, it’s just too easy to read & teach the propaganda sported in the teacher science magazines, lesson plans, science textbooks etc than it is to follow any other course.

Back in the early part of the 20th century, Jacksonville, FL (my hometown) was one of the moviemaking capitals of the world. Hundreds of films were made here every year, and studios dotted the landscape. Eventually, the people of Jacksonville got fed up with the general public nuisance that is filmmaking, and the filmmakers got tired of being gouged by the people of Jacksonville, so the studios packed up and moved to Beverly. The rest is history.

To this day, the local fishwrap still runs yearly articles decrying the shortsightedness of the city fathers back then and lamenting “what might have been” had the studios stayed.

If it means not having to deal with assholes like Cameron, I’d say we dodged a bullet.

I’ve seen that for many science teachers, it’s just too easy to read & teach the propaganda sported in the teacher science magazines, lesson plans, science textbooks etc than it is to follow any other course.

It may be, but these are not sources that I turn to for information. The “propaganda” that I read includes university texts and academic publications by experts in the field of climatology. Please understand that teachers (particularly science teachers) don’t limit themselves to the types of materials you indicated. Most of us have received academic training far beyond the scopes of these materials. As for myself, I have degrees both in biology and in engineering, and can understand a good deal of what I read in scientific publications. Of course, this doesn’t make me an expert by any means.

Now, you speak of “meaningful truth”. From where do you derive your “meaningful truth”? Since you seem to know what is the “meaningful truth”, you must be an expert. Is this correct?

Mwuahahahah! My letter to the editor was published today, too bad it’s a tiny community paper.

BTW, the description of prop 23 was incorrect in the absentee ballots sent to Fresno county. Yup, about 140,000 people got ballots using language that a judge ruled as misrepresenting of facts for prop 23. Who’s office wrote the ballot language that was struck down by the judge? That would be the AG’s office, aka Jerry Brown’s office.

Too bad Meg Whitman didn’t support Proposition 23… she could have used Brown’s shenanigans against him. Oh well, she’s still better than Brown by billions.

And if she wins and prop 23 goes down, she’s pledged a 1 year moratorium on AB 32. Any suspending of that horrible law is good news.
