Recent Events in Global Warming

Sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since the last update. Life and liberty has had me rather busy.

Here are some recent tidbits on the "global warming" silliness:
  1. BBC Video "The Great Global Warming Swindle". The original on Google is gone (surprise, surprise surprise), but here is a 2 minute preview, and another source for the full video courtesy of Curmudgeonly & Skeptical.
  2. This delightful bit of irony also came from Curmudgeonly & Skeptical, "Frostbite ends Bancroft-Arnesen trek". The quote at the end of the report is delicious:

    "They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming"
  3. Kim Du Toit's observations on the global warming models are insightful. They can be summed up by this quote:
    "'The global warming models have some disturbing characteristics. For example, their output doesn’t depend on their inputs'"
  4. Also interesting is his take on carbon offsets:
    “'Carbon offsets' (2007) = 'Papal indulgences' (1517)

    Seriously. It’s just payola to a different absolutionist."

  5. Seems to me Al Gore is running some kind of Ponzi scheme (or maybe a check kiting ring) with his "carbon offsets". From "Signal 94: Global Warning is Gore's Retirement Plan"
    Gore's carbon footprint may be the size of Godzilla's, but he eases his conscience with 'carbon offsets.' He buys them from himself. And every time someone else buys them, Big Al gets richer.
