One Of Inhofe's "Eminent Scientists" Blames Global Warming On God

TV weatherman Chris Allen, specifically:

"My biggest argument against putting the primary blame on humans for climate change is that it completely takes God out of the picture. It must have slipped these people's minds that God created the heavens and the earth and has control over what's going on. (Dear Lord Jesus...did I just open a new pandora's box?) Yeah, I said it. Do you honestly believe God would allow humans to destroy the earth He created?"

h/t to the Gristmill.

A network weatherman in another country questions global warming, and this is news?

Do Canadians even deserve freedom of expression? I think not. They squander their freedom.

Sorry to go off-topic:

KKKate (specifically, Kate McMillan, Saskatoon...!) went mainstream with her scientilicious explanation of the increase in cat breeding in Toronto with a letter to the editor in today's Globe and Mail:

The problem with this theory [Global Warming] is that, according to many readily available authoritative sources, the feline reproductive cycle is determined by hours of natural light, not temperature.

I think it's great that she's finally got a publishing credit, which she'll refer to often, if she ever figures out how to cite it, that is.

Ti-guy,

Is that letter on-line?

Ti-Guy said...

It might be. The last time I went looking for letter to the editor on The Globe's web site, I was a real exercise in frustration (and I'm a subscriber). I never use the site.

I'll see if I can find it.

Ti-Guy said...

BCL:

The "letters to the editor" are behind the Globe's firewall (as if anyone cares). Even as a subscriber, you have to set up a different account to access them, and I'm pretty sure I've set up about 4 different accounts with The Globe over the past few years, as they "transitioned through different online paradigms" each time.

Story short, I can't be bothered, because I'll get confused again between that and my subscriber account when it comes to usernames and passwords.

Sorry to go off-topic:

Paul Wells notes that the Liberals are making Stephen Harper look like a political genius and mentions today's GST cut announcement.

TODAY STEPHEN HARPER ANNOUNCES A REDUCTION OF THE GST TO 5%.

Will the Liberals continue to abstain at this year's budget?

The Conservatives are starting the year in fine fashion- and people will notice that GST cut everytime they make a purchase - that is a political fact on the ground that should drain the colour from the face of thinking Liberals.

And remember the Liberal's postion on the GST, right down to Dion's latest utterances. If there is one issue where their credibility is kaputski, it's gotta be this issue.

Sorry to go off-topic:

When have you ever been on-topic?

When that happens, let me know.

bigcitylib said...

The escargot are going to Paul's head.

Ti-Guy said...

I'm not commenting on that because it's unclear from Biff whether he's quoting Paul Wells or not, or where the citation begins and ends. And the filthy propagandist didn't provide a link.

*sigh*....The illiteracy...the immorality...

Since the GST cut is a stupid economic move that Harper is determined to implement to pander to people who don't understand it, I don't really care. I doubt the majority of people who approve of it understand that it's against their best interests, but it's their funeral.

It actually benefits me tremendously, so...thanks, suckers!

andrew said...

You're so lazy ti-guy, I thought everyone reading this blog knows where Paul Wells'(left-wing political pundit) blog is: at Macleans.ca - double click on "bloggers" and his ugly face appears just under Mark Steyn's ugly face.

"It actually benefits me tremendously, so...thanks, suckers!" - Ti-guy

You're sort of making the point there ti-guy, we all benefit from tax cuts.

Andrew:

I read Paul Well's comment and it's easy for him to say this now. If the Liberals had forced an election in the fall, the likelihood is that the Conservatives would have been returned with another minority, so what's Wells' point. I don't think he has one.

That said, things don't look like they'll get any easier for the Liberals in the crucial next 3 months or so unless Harper screws up.

In the time it took you to write all of that, bozo, you could have marked up a link. Not even mark up; just cut 'n paste.

...this is Ezra's YouthQuacking generation, folks.

We are so doomed.

Why should anyone be surprised at the far-right and their idiotic God/weather connection? Georgia governor, Sunny Perdue, has come up with his own strategy to deal with his state's crippling drought - a prayer meeting. Said Perdue, "God can make it rain tomorrow, he can make it rain next week or next month." Then again, why would God do that?

"One of",

that's right, one of,

and, he's you know, a scientist, not a secratary, lab assistant, or accountant,

that are included in the IPCC's world's "leading scientists".

Hehehe, this is great.

Meanwhile the head environmental correspondent, hard core lefty, and former global warming hysteria participant for the BBC writes in the New Stateman:

"The fact is that the global temperature of 2007 is statistically the same as 2006 as well as every year since 2001. Global warming has, temporarily or permanently, ceased. Temperatures across the world are not increasing as they should according to the fundamental theory behind global warming – the greenhouse effect.

...

For the past decade the world has not warmed. Global warming has stopped. It’s not a viewpoint or a sceptic’s inaccuracy. It’s an observational fact.

...

I have heard it said, by scientists, journalists and politicians, that the time for argument is over and that further scientific debate only causes delay in action. But the wish to know exactly what is going on is independent of politics and scientists must never bend their desire for knowledge to any political cause, however noble.

The science is fascinating, the ramifications profound, but we are fools if we think we have a sufficient understanding of such a complicated system as the Earth’s atmosphere’s interaction with sunlight to decide. We know far less than many think we do or would like you to think we do. We must explain why global warming has stopped."

When the lefty's start to turn, you know the end of this rediculous meme is pretty darn close.

By Alexandre Aguiar, MetSul Weather Center, Brazil

Southern Hemisphere’s ice cover now is at the same level as last June, i.e., a level seen during the last winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Besides, there are two more millions square kilometers of ice now compared to December 2006. And the large positive anomaly has persisted since September.

Icecap note: In the Northern Hemisphere, the ice and snow cover have recovered to within 1% (one snowstorm) of normal with the official start of winter still more than 12 days away

Hehe, damn that reality not according with the politicized meme.

I guess they'll have to adjust those zany computer models again.

I think the Liberal slogan should be:

Stephane Dion In 2008.
Because Tax Cuts Are For Neanderthals.

Reality Bites said...

Paul Wells, "left-wing political pundit?"

I don't know who would find that more amusing, me or Paul!

Ti-Guy said...

Anyone with the slightest sense of humour is "left wing," practically Marxist-Leninist, for them.

Western Lib - I agree, it's typical Wells, in the place of analysis, he gives us glibness and flippancy.

Anonymous said...

At least Dion is keeping his mouth shut today on the GST cut. We should be thankful for such mercies.

Anonymous said...

I love it when all of us sock-puppets start agreeing with each other.

It really makes the fiberals fear us for our message discipline.

Anonymous said...

No, the new liberal ad campaign will center around:

"Vote Dion, because your money is really our money."

People is the cause of Global warming and no doubt it.
