The heat is on! One brave DUmmie takes on the Warmers!

The heat is on! DUmmieland is heating up, and Climategate is the cause. As you probably have heard by now, a number of e-mails have been leaked from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU). These e-mails show that "scientists" there have manipulated and suppressed data that do not support their crusade to prove Anthropogenic (Man-caused) Global Warming. In other words, the CRU has been turning out C-R-U-D. This revelation could be the last nail in the boffins' coffin, the death knell of their increasingly discredited cause. Of course, the DUmmies are more upset about the e-mails being leaked than about the damaging information they contain. And the True Believers are still confessing the creed of the Church of Climatology. But one brave DUmmie is daring to take on the Warmers. He is DUmmie notesdev, and over the last few days, he has shown up on a number of threads to challenge their assertions, as you can track in notesdev's JOURNAL. It's not easy being non-green, but notesdev is taking the heat and not backing down!

Before we go to those threads, though, let's first sing this this musical tribute to the High Priest of the Church of Climatology, the Rev. Algore:

Tune: "Riders on the Storm"

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

There's an inconsistent flaw
In his scientific law
There's not one single cause
For why an iceberg thaws
The conclusion that he draws
Is giving us guffaws
An inconsistent flaw

Gore, you incoherent goof
Gore, you incoherent goof
It doesn't take a sleuth
To see your lack of proof
Here's an inconvenient truth
It's still freezing in Duluth
You incoherent goof

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm . . .

So now let us go the Warmergate Wars, in Thermometer Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson--looking forward to the annual Thanksgiving threads of DUmmies interacting with their rethuglican relatives, which are always a hoot--is in the [brackets]:

"Climate sceptics claim leaked emails are evidence of collusion among scientists" . . . If these prove to be authentic, it's vital they be read in context. . . .

["In context" means their "facts" are Fake But Accurate.]

I want the truth, no matter which side that is. I know thats not a popular opinion with so many people having vested interests in believing GW is real, but the truth is more important than ideology.


the majority of Russians are FOR global warming. . . .

[Moscow, the new Miami.]

Many of these emails seems to suggest discussion of data manipulation, freezing out skeptics, etc, etc.

[Nonsense! Why, these men are SCIENTISTS! They could not possibly be politically driven!]

GCC is a serious threat. . . .

[Notice how "Global Warming" has recently been modified to "Global Climate Change."]

Scientists have no horse in this race, therefore no reason to "lean" either way.

[Two words: Research grants. Now to the first post from DUmmie notesdev. . .]

I'm not going to make myself popular among the followers of that religion, but I am familiar with the scientific method and "global warming" has always struck me as offensive to it. I have been slack-jawed more than once, watching the extreme energy consumption excesses of Al Gore - the palatial mansions far beyond his needs, the constant travel on private jets, the SUVs - and trying to figure out how the true believers can be so blind to the complete disconnect between how he lives and what he claims to be true. He is well on his way to becoming a billionaire, profits sucked right out of the pockets of the suckers who took him at his word... and still, it doesn't seem to register with them that his behavior does not match up with his words. If carbon dioxide is such a problem, why is he producing it at a rate unmatched by all but a few other human beings on the planet? Nor did they blink an eye at the sudden Orwellian switch from "global warming" to "climate change", just as the hard proof was becoming known, that the planet as a whole is not warming at all. Real scientists don't find reasons to explain that away - they say, these are the facts, this is the truth, and let the chips fall where they may.

[DUmmie notesdev, you are far worse than a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL! You are a HERETIC!!! But please continue . . .]

So many claims that have been made by proponents of this agenda have been proven false, that it amazes me that anyone is still foolish enough to believe it. If the initial claims were true we would never have made it to the year 2000, the world was scheduled to end well before then. Was it so long ago that the predictions of increasing hurricane activity, made in the wake of Katrina, went silent as several quiet hurricane seasons passed?


You needn't go back very far to see hysterical prediction after hysterical prediction, that the world should already have ended many times over if these "scientists" (who were actually political agitators and not scientists at all) were correct.


Back in the day when I was just a small child, I read a fairy tale called Chicken Little. "The sky is falling!" "The sky is falling!" My friend, the sky is not falling. Climate change is perfectly natural and has gone on since the earth formed from protoplanetary mass, and that change is driven by the sun, something we can do nothing about. Global warming is a complete and total fraud.


Glen Beck, is that you?

[You've been reading the DUmmie FUnnies, haven't you?]

Why are you using right-wing talking points?

[This is called DUmmiegenic Subject Change, diverting attention from the evidence that the boffins were manipulating data.]

do you acknowledge that AGW may in fact be happening?

[A Warmer comes back at notesdev.]

An extreme improbability. Anything is possible. . . . Me plucking a nose hair in 1979 could have set off the course of events that eventually resulted in Pittsburgh winning the Superbowl last year, too. Nor could one conclusively disprove that we are not all sitting in pods, living in a virtual world constructed by a malicious alien artificial intelligence intent on harvesting our body heat for energy. . . . Each of these hypotheses has about an equal chance of being true, i.e. none.

[You are indeed a brave soul, DUmmie notesdev!]

Hiding data, deleting data, cherry picking, choosing techniques for the specific purpose of achieving an outcome that conforms to a preconception, failure to admit levels of uncertainty, failure to test a hypothesis, political advocacy, and more - it is a virtual catalogue of things that a scientist must not do in order to establish the credibility of their results. . . . These leaked emails provide yet the latest proof that nothing resembling scientific method is involved in arriving at conclusions promoted by AGW advocates.

[Notesdev, with all this mental clarity, you are now the frontrunner for Kewpie Doll of the Year! Keep going, with a post from another thread . . .]

if I assert there's a giant space dragon hiding behind the sun, who will only be appeased if we coat the moon in peanut butter, otherwise he'll eat the planet... are you going to rush to the Cape Canaveral with a jar of Skippy? (Pay no attention to my massive investment in peanut futures)

[Moonbatogenic Goober Warning.]

it's too late to make a difference- so why bother with it at this point? eat, drink, and be merry, for sometime this century- we die.

[Is that you, Joyceleyn Elders? Back to notesdev, on yet another thread . . .]

The biggest scientific scandal of the century, and all we get on DU is apologia and cover-up. This is extremely disappointing.

[This is extremely predictable. Like this Warmer apologist . . .]

It's pointless to respond seriously to wackadoodle denialism.

[The wackadoodle denialism right now is coming from who ignore the boffins' manipulation of the data. One final post from notesdev, on still another thread . . .]

I can name quite a few motives. It sure beats toiling away as an obscure and unknown climate scientist in East Anglia, if instead you get to jet the world and be a big shot at conferences, because everyone is celebrating the latest advances based on your revolutionary new results. Cushy jobs, pretty nice salary, be the big man on campus, big budgets to play with. . . . Book deals, important posts, maybe some nice undergrad climate babes, you name it. . . .

[Boffins: 'Bring on the climate babes!' Now to close, a few final thoughts from some other DUmmies . . .]

It is going to take a revolution. . . .

[The DUmmies are revolting!]

few us are willing to or even capable of making really major changes to our lifestyle. I like hot showers in the morning and I use toilet paper.

[Brown underwear = Green planet.]

Copenhagen is about one thing: getting "rich" countries to give money to "developing" nations.

[Sorry, only one Kewpie Doll per thread.]

This is troubling on so many levels.

I wonder at the depth of the collusion and the depth of the crime.

After all, how many trillions of dollars have been diverted and stolen by these charlatans and their made-up horsecrap?

When will criminal charges begin to be laid?

I believe the term is "watermelon." Green on the outside, red on the inside.

I wonder how long it will be before "notesdev" gets TOMBSTONED...shouldn't be too long, particularly since the Troglaman Clones at Democratic Underground have a zero tolerance policy towards those who do not comply with the latest groupthink of the Democratic Socialist Party of America (DSA) base and leadership.

notesdev blows a breath of fresh air into the DU swamp but only stirs up the shit smell even worse.

Dang, one of them actually found a clue! Indeed, if the alarmist theories on which Obambi wants to base our environmental policy were correct, the effect would be IRREVERSIBLE at this point.

Granting the legitimacy of AGW (Or 'AGCC') for the sake of argument only, the only possible way to reverse it would be a near total depopulation of the planet, and anything that would do that would have much, much more drastic global climatic consequences than any amount of continued human activity.

Wow - a site that nutpicks the left!
Well, turnabout's fair play:

7:44 AM"

It seems to be a trend that smart-aleky trolls are becoming spammers as well.
