Climategate

Global Warming fanatics revealing their terrorist tendencies think it is funny to publish a video in which people who don’t sign up for their cause including school children are blown up:

After Climategate demonstrated the fraudulent nature of a lot of “evidence” for global warming and the failure to impose draconian curbs on the economic activities of developed countries at the Copenhagen summit last year, the eco terrorists are becoming increasingly desperate.

They have tried to rename the issue to “global climate disruption“, but they are increasingly failing to convince people that there is a climate crisis that requires sacrifice of individual freedom and prosperity. Their goal is to reduce global population, so it is not surprising that they like a video in which they blow up people that disagree with them.

The creators of the video have faced a backlash and have tried to remove it, but enough copies are circulating on the internet that they are doomed to fail.

of the Telegraph comments (via Hot Air):

I predicted this morning that No Pressure – Richard Curtis’s spectacularly ill-judged eco-propaganda movie for the 10:10 campaign – would prove a disastrous own goal for the green movement.

But what I could never have imagined was how quickly public disgust – even among greenies – would reach such a pitch that the campaigners would be compelled to withdraw it from the internet.

That, at any rate, is what they keep trying to do – cancelling it whenever it appears on You Tube, pulling it from their campaign website and so on.

Unfortunately their efforts are being frustrated by people on the sceptical side of the climate debate, who keep peskily insisting on reposting the video where everyone can view it. And rightly so. With No Pressure, the environmental movement has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness.

We have missed him. It has been quite some time since Al Gore has provided us entertainment.

Gore has emerged from hibernation during an unusually cold winter to inspire college graduates at the University of Tennessee. Well, maybe inspire is not the right word. Actually, if you subscribe to his religion of global warming you will be downright depressed after watching this. He even manages to bring subprime mortgages into his rant on global warming. No word on whether the University of Tennessee had grief counselors ready to help students who buy into Al Gore’s vision of the world.

So if you get frightened by the global warming alarmists, you may want to skip this video. On the other hand, if you don’t buy the global warming hysteria especially after ClimateGate, this may be good for a few laughs.

Coverage in the mainstream media of climate change still has its limitations, but at least Climategate and consistent public skepticism has forced mainstream media reports to take into account the critics of man-made global warming hysteria. Here is an example of an ABC report on Earth Day:

Hide the Decline II

April 20, 2010

Last November, Minnesotans for Global Warming (M4GW) produced a video making fun of Professor Michael Mann who with “Mike’s nature trick” and other distortions became one of the top villains of the Climategate scandal.

After Mann threatened to sue M4GW in March unless they took the video down, M4GW complied. The video can still be seen, now hosted by the No Cap and Trade Coalition:

M4GW has now produced a second video featuring a scientist wearing a wig and poking fun at the demand not to display Mann’s image:

We know about flawed computer models of the earth’s atmosphere from Climategate. Now, it looks like flawed computer models have been used by politicians in Europe to cause the biggest disruption of air travel since World War 2. The Financial Times reports:

Flawed computer models may have exaggerated the effects of an Icelandic volcano eruption that has grounded tens of thousands of flights, stranded hundreds of thousands of passengers and cost businesses hundreds of millions of euros.

The computer models that guided decisions to impose a no-fly zone across most of Europe in recent days are based on incomplete science and limited data, according to European officials. As a result, they may have over-stated the risks to the public, needlessly grounding flights and damaging businesses.

“It is a black box in certain areas,” Matthias Ruete, the EU’s director-general for mobility and transport, said on Monday, noting that many of the assumptions in the computer models were not backed by scientific evidence.

European authorities were not sure about scientific questions, such as what concentration of ash was hazardous for jet engines, or at what rate ash fell from the sky, Mr Ruete said. “It’s one of the elements where, as far as I know, we’re not quite clear about it,” he admitted.

He also noted that early results of the 40-odd test flights conducted over the weekend by European airlines, such as KLM and Air France, suggested that the risk was less than the computer models had indicated.

The acknowledgement that the computer models were flawed is likely to provide ammunition for critics who believe that authorities have shown excessive caution. The closure of much of the airspace over Europe over the past five days is estimated to have cost airlines a total of $200m a day in lost revenue.
