Keeping Science Out of the Political Process

Scientific American has an online survey about the climate issue which has produced some very interesting results, which have upset the bedwetting liberal establishment.

To the question “Which policy options do you support?”, 65% of respondents have answered “keeping science out of the political process”. These respondents are very wise! Science is good in certain places, and bad in others.

These are places where science is good and can help humanity a lot:

  • Industry, e.g. inventing flying cars.
  • Military, e.g. inventing flying tanks.
  • Museums, e.g. assembling dinosaur skeletons.
  • Michael Crichton’s books and movies (Jurassic Park, State of Fear etc)

But these are places where science is bad and can do great harm to humanity:

  • Policy, e.g. worldwide DDT ban.
  • Al Gore’s books and movies (An Inconvenient Truth).

So why is science bad in policy? As experience has shown, science in policy usually results in:

  • Regulations
  • Taxes
  • World governance.

So it should be obvious to any freedom- and prosperity-loving person that we need to keep science out of policy. Nowhere else is it as blatantly obvious as in the case of the alleged climate change.
You see, science is useful if the scientists are ordered to do something useful, like inventing the atom bomb (one of the great master-pieces of creative capitalism). So I’m all for science, yes I’m very pro-science as you all know, when science is used the right way and not the left way.
However, the scientists not working for the captains of industry and war are in general a na├»ve bunch of leftist day-dreamers who don’t understand the complexities of the real world outside their labs. They will make things up in order to get more fat grants and live in luxury on the tax-payers’ expense. They are activists, trouble-makes, meddlers in peoples’ lives.
A case in point: quantum mechanics – completely useless and nobody understands it. It’s just a lot of spin. How dare they tell me whether I can poison my cat or not! It is preposterous!
Therefore, this kind of scientists cannot be trusted. They will use their fancy titles and their perceived authority to try to influence the gullible masses and to pursue their feverish dreams of eco-communism. It will just end up as in Stalinist Russia where Dr Lysenko’s mad science ideas caused millions to starve to death!
Fortunately, there are many politicians that have realized what they are up against, and have taken a brave stand against the corrupting influence of science, such as Republican tea-party senate candidate Christine O'Donnell.
As retired House Republican Sherwood Boehlert (himself a fanatic eco-fascist) says about these open-minded climate-realistic politicians: “They haven't been exposed to the science all that much.” And a good thing is that! Then they can do what is best for humanity and prosperity, instead of following the leash of the corrupt and power-drunk scientific establishment.
Science is a wonderful thing, but whenever I hear the words “science says”, I reach for my Luger. No smart-ass scientists are going to tell me what I can or cannot do!

Purgamentum init, exit purgamentum.

Bonus: Australian journalist Tim Blair writes that Al’Gore is a fat, pompous, greedy, horny, envious, angry, and lazy moron! A must for the well-informed reader!

Happy Climate Fools Day!

Today is Climate Fools Day - the day when we laugh extra hard at how incredibly stupid and ingorant and ugly and narrow-minded and bed-wetting the climate fascists are!

Ha ha ha ha!

And today, we celebrate the superiority of Post-Normal Blog Science to any other epistemic system ever conceived by the human mind, including Boring Old Academic Science with its dusty old tomes and grimy old test tubes and fat grants from tax-payers' money! I mean, just look at this humble blog you have in front of you. It is something of an understatement to say that this blog has done more for progressing climate science than the whole of CRU during their entire existence. Blog Science is the future! And it is cheaper for the tax-payers too!

Infinitus est numerus stultorum

Secret climate conspiracy meeting in Lisbon

The always interesting new blog Whats Up With Watts has a most disturbing revelation about a "secret" symposium of paleoclimatologists (ie people that fake historical climate data). The symposium was clandestinely advertised on a well-hidden web site, so it is apparent that the organizers wanted to hide the fact that the meeting was secret (in other words, the meeting was secretly secret). However, the meeting was not reported in any major media, and that is highly unusual for a scientific event. In addition, the symposium took place in the largely unknown country of Portugal, in the well-concealed city of Lisbon (once a common meeting-place for spies) in September (a month favoured by communists). Indeed, something is very fishy here. To conclude that, it suffices to look at the elaborate and multi-layered webs of deception and subterfuge that were spun by twisted minds in dark chambers to conceal what was going on at this event.
The list of participants is even more suspicious, with Team members such as Michael Mann, Phil Jones, Raymond Bradley and Jonathan Overpeck. It is probably no coincident that all these Teamsters turned up at the symposium. They were certainly up to no good! I bet the main point on the agenda was how "to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period". And were was the suspiciously absent Keith Briffa? What strings was he pulling; behind what pines was he hiding?
On the Symposium web page, one can read:
We propose to revisit the MCA/MWP assimilating widespread and continuous paleoclimatic evidence in a homogeneous way and scale them against recent measured temperatures to allow a meaningful quantitative comparison against the 20th-century pace and magnitude of warming. It is the goal of the organizers to focus attention on this topic, so that the latest results will be considered in the next (fifth) assessment report of the IPCC.
Note the words: "assimilating", "homogeneous", "scale", "quantitative". This all means that they want to manipulate and massage and trick and fudge the data so it shows the desired result (i.e. world governance). And why did they bring up the 5th AR of the ICCCP? What new frauds are they planning this time? What goes on behind the curtains when the Teamsters and their accomplices scheme in the dark back alleys of Lisbon, where even the pick-pockets and harbor prostitutes do not dare to tread? We know that for the First AR, the paleoclimatologist faked a temperature graph which looked like a sickle (symbol of communism). Then for the Third AR, they decided to get rid of the fraudulent sickle graph (did they suspect that the game was up?) and replace it with the equally fraudulent Hockey Stick graph (the Soviet Union had a very successful hockey team). What will the next graph be like? An ice-pick, like the one that was used to murder Trotsky on the orders of Stalin? Clearly they have learned nothing about ethics or how to conceal their intentions.

One thing that we can be certain about, though, is that this Symposium cost the tax-payers in many countries huge amounts of money - money that otherwise could have been used to help starving children. The participants most likely traveled in their private jet planes, and stayed at the most luxurious hotels that the decadent city of Lisbon can offer. We have reasons to believe that the Symposium Banquet offered fried dormice, nightingale tongues and peacock brains, all washed down with copious amounts of Chateau d'Yquem. And what purpose had all the beautiful escort ladies that we also suspect were there? Are we to believe that they were interested in "Coral Records of central tropical Pacific temperature & hydrology during the Medieval Climate Anomaly"? What was that white stuff that I bet was on the team-members' brown noses? Portugal is known for having a very liberal drug legislation. Indeed, it seems like these people are more interested in getting stuffed, laid and high than in doing science. And in order to continue this decadent lifestyle, they need to keep the grant money flowing into their large pockets. And of course, they want to deny the rest of humanity their jet-set life style. They’ve already shown the nefarious depths to which they will stoop and the pressure to keep this charade going has to be immense. Make no mistake, AGW is a big time industry and the investors are not going to give up their investment easy, if ever.

So how can we uncover the truth about this Symposium? We must send FOI-requests to those involved, and then publicize the e-mails (which we obtained in some manner) where they discuss how they can avoid those FOI-requests while stupidly revealing details of their hidden tricks and frauds. We must have hearings in Congress with McIntyre, and we must address this issue on every Climate blog on the internets! The truth must come out!

Professor announces he would have resigned from Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences

Last week, the world was shocked and awed when Emeritus Professor Harold Lewis resigned from the American Physics Society because of their anti-scientific position regarding the global warming scam. This week, another prominent scientist, Royal Professor Claes Johnson from the Royal Institute for Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, dropped another daisy cutter on the climate junta when he announced that he would have resigned from Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, had he only been a member, which he should have been if there only had been some justice in the world. Professor Johnson’s hypothetical resignation is a great loss to the Academy, as well as a great embarrassment. The Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences used to be famous for selecting the winners of the Nobel Prizes in the physical, chemical and medical sciences every year (see picture), but after Professor Johnson’s hypothetical resignation, those Prizes have been seriously devalued. The question is whether anybody really would want them anymore. Will the Swedish king really want to continue participating in the award ceremony after this scandal? And how many more non-members will resign from the Academy, after Professor Johnson has set the snowball rolling?
So what caused Professor Johnson to take the desperate step of leaving (had he been a member) a prestigious and influential position in the Academy? Professor Johnson is objecting to the Academy’s endorsement of the fully unscientific and unproven concept of a fictional “green-house effect”, which is the foundation of the entire AGW-scam (a matter on which he recently expressed disagreement with the Lord Monckton himself, who is for once seriously at fault). The Academy has forever disgraced itself by supporting such nonsense and superstition! Professor Johnson writes:
I don't want to be member of such an Academy. Is there really nobody among the 175 [real members] who has similar hesitations?

Besides Claes Johnson, will enough members and non-members take a stand against the Lysenkonistic corruption that got its hold on the organisation, so that it can recover some of the respect it had before this ignominy? Or will future Nobel prizes have no more value than something you find in a cereal box?

I want to personally contribute to fighting the corruption of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences. Although I am not formally eligible for a membership in that organisation, there is something else I can do in spite of a considerable personal cost:

I hereby announce that if I had been awarded the Nobel Prize by the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, then I would return it!

Great Scandal in First IPCC report

All well-informed people must have heard of the notorious so-called Hockey Stick graph by the equally notorious Michael Mann and his accomplices. An alleged attempt to reconstruct northern hemisphere temperatures during the last millennium, it featured prominently in the third IPCC report, published in 2001. Its inclusion in that report is considered to be one of the greatest scientific scandals ever.
But there is an ever greater scandal that is waiting to have its story told. It concerns the first IPCC report, published in 1990. This report features another millennial temperature reconstruction (below).

This graph is commonly referred to as the “Sickle graph” because of its sickle-like shape (compare to the picture below).

Note that the sickle is a commonly used symbol for communism.

The “Sickle graph” is based on the work of Hubert Lamb, who also is the founder of the notorious Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University, of Climate Gate infamy (hardly a mere coincident). And if one investigates the origin of the graph, it turns out that it is not at all global, as claimed by the IPCC, but merely covers Central England!
This was in 1990, which was much closer to the medieval period than 2010 (ie the present year), and yet this was the best they could do. A crudely drawn graph for Central England (loaded with communist symbolism), and not even calibrated against present temperatures! Then one can only imagine how much worse our knowledge of medieval temperatures must be today, twenty years later.
Do you all see now what a terrible fraud this is? And the fraud has been successful: even many skeptics unknowingly use this disgraceful and discredited graph, a cruel mockery of everything that is good and pure in science! It is utterly unacceptable. Don’t let the alarmists keep this outrageousity buried any longer. After all, this is in the primary IPCC report – the most important of them all. This scandal will bring down the IPCC once and for all, and put an end to its reign of terror. And in particular, Bert Bolin must immediately resign as the first IPCC chair!

All skeptical bloggers must write about this scam of unprecedented proportions! Anthony Whats, Steve McIntyre – you must immediately help me to let the entire world know! Professor Wegman must immediately start a new investigation, and congressman Joe Barton must commission it!

My dear fellow skeptics, pit bulls for truth: this time we surely have the IPCC by the balls, and we will not let go!

I'm really angry with the APS!

I recently wrote about Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, who sent a letter of resignation to the American Physical Society (APS) because they support the AGW fraud. Now the APS has responded, and as expected it is a vile pile of ad hominem and grotesque attempts to smear Dr. Lewis. For instance, they write:
There is no truth to Dr. Lewis’ assertion that APS policy statements are driven by financial gain.

"There is no truth..."? Are they trying to imply that Dr. Lewis is some hoary and senile old geezer who lives in a fantasy world of conspiracy theories, and who cannot tell fact from fiction? That is outrageous! How dare they! This kind of vicious ad hominem attack is so typical of the eco-fascists when they have theirs backs against the wall! But his time the wall will come tumbling down all over them!

I got so upset when I read this malicious attack against a great mind, that I immediately went to the APS web site and signed up for a life membership (using a fake name, so I wouldn't end up on any blacklist). Then I sat down and wrote the following letter of resignation to the APS!
Dear APS,
I have a life membership in your organisation, but now I have had enough of your ANTI-SCIENTIFIC FRAUDS! Global warming is a BIG SCAM to get more MONEY from the public to line your FAT POCKETS! How dare you SMEAR the venerable Dr. Harold Lewis with your FILTHY LIES and DIRTY AD HONIMEM ATTACKS! You are a disgrace to science and to humanity and a BUNCH OF COMMUNISTS! You should not call yourself APS - you should instead be named APES! Therefore, I hereby RESIGN my LIFE MEBERSHIP, you PIG-HEADED MORONS! Do not contact me again!

Yours truly
Dr Albert Einstein, Geneva

That should really teach them. Indeed, if everybody would do the same as I did, the APS would soon collapse like a house of cards from all resignations!

Harold Lewis and some noble friends have also written a devastating response to the APS at the prestigious blog Whats Up With Watt. And let's not forget what Dr. Anthony Watts wrote about Dr. Lewis's resignation letter:
It is worthy of repeating this letter in entirety on every blog that discusses science.

I would add: you can also post it in a lot of other places. I have for instance today made 26 book reviews at Amazon which are copies of Lewis's resignation letter, including for the #1 best-seller "The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero".
In that way, I hope a lot of people will read it before the infamous Amazon censorship strikes again!

Update! The scientific greatness of Harold Lewis is proven by the fact that he since October 13 even has his own Wikipedia entry! (Which of course the AGW censors tried to remove! Bastards!)

Historical moment: Emeritus Professor single-handedly destroys AGW dogma

Harold Lewis is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has sent a letter of resignation to Curtis G. Callan Jr, who is the President of the American Physical Society. By sending this momentous letter, Harold Lewis has single-handedly destroyed the towering pile of pseudo-science and religion that goes under the name "the AGW dogma". Fellow blogger Anthony Watts writes thus:
"This is an important moment in science history. I would describe it as a letter on the scale of Martin Luther, nailing his 95 theses to the Wittenburg church door. It is worthy of repeating this letter in entirety on every blog that discusses science."

Indeed, Harold Lewis's letter will prove just as important in the history of science as Martin Luther's 95 theses. This passage is particularly significant:

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare.

And this one:
In the interim the ClimateGate scandal broke into the news, and the machinations of the principal alarmists were revealed to the world. It was a fraud on a scale I have never seen, and I lack the words to describe its enormity. Effect on the APS position: none. None at all. This is not science; other forces are at work.

As an Emeritus Professor, Harold Lewis can speak openly, unlike the thousands and thousands of scientists who are slaves under Mammon (i.e. government-funded research grants). His venerable age assures his wisdom and his uncorruptability. Just like Martin Luther saved us from the oppression and heresies of the Catholic Church and its evil Pope, Hal Lewis has saved us all from the oppression and heresies of the Global Warming Church and its fat and evil Al'Gore. The great AGW fraud is now collapsing in front of our very eyes, just like the Vatican once did!
Remember: it takes thousands of professors to build a scientific fraud-theory, but it only takes one to overthrow it.

Indeed, Harold Lewis's letter will prove just as important in the history of science as when Moses himself overthrew the Golden Calf. Yes, it is certainly not an overstatement to compare Harold Lewis to Moses. Or maybe David who single-handedly slew the Philistine giant Goliath with a stone from his sling.

Baseless plagiarism accusations against Hockey Stick slayer Wegman

In the past few months we have seen a number of amateurish attempts to counter skeptical arguments that gained traction in what public space there is for matters climatic and anti-climactic. Today we get introduced to John Mashey’s attempt to smear Edward Wegman and reclaim the Hockey Stick for further usage. It’s definitely anti-climactic.
John Mashey says that Wegman plagiarised material in his report to Congress.This is odd. Wegman is not a climate scientist. He is a statistician. The material Mashey alleges Wegman stole comes from Raymond Bradley, who has since apparently filed an official complaint with George Mason University. Is Mashey accusing Wegman of falsely representing himself as an expert in climate science? Is his intent to use as intellectual property ideas generated by Bradley for his own profit?
Just because two texts are a bit similar, it doesn't mean that one author has plagiarized the other. Sometimes different people just happen to write the same thing.
This whole affair is just a dirty and shameful attempt to smear an honest man who just did his job (i.e. to demolish the infamous Hockey Stick and reveal the fraud of Mann and his accomplishes). The warmo-fascists are really panicking if they try such desperate ad hominem tactics! What will their next step be? Stealing Wegman’s emails and making them public? Accusing climate skeptics of being nazis? Exploding skeptic children by pressing red buttons?
Climategate had a huge impact on public opinion regarding the probity of some of the scientists involved. The leaked emails clearly showed bad and bullying behaviour that left a stench in any honest reader’s nostrils. This new Mashey-gate smells just as bad! And John Mashey’s obsession with the Wegman report just doesn’t seem very healthy. It is just a conspiracy theory run amok! And do the alarmist really think that they can demolish the skeptic's strong position by an alleged case of plagiarism? It is utterly ridiculous!

Over at WUWT, Tom Fuller has a must-read post about this sordid affair.

And now something different: another Nazi image with a witty caption:

“Scheisse, who came up with the stupid idea of running our tanks on solar power in the middle of the Russian winter?”

The nazi-alarmist "no pressure" nazi-plan of annihilation

Dear readers,
I must admit that after first watching the awful "No pressure" nazi-video, I jumped a bit too fast to the conclusion that the eco-nazis were literally going to blow up their opponents by pressing on red nazi-buttons. After further reflection I have come to the conclusion that the nazi-video was intended to be interpreted symbolically. After all, nazi-exploding your opponents by pressing red nazi-buttons seems like a quite difficult thing to do, and can hardly be seen as a realistic nazi-plan. The red nazi-buttons and explosions are merely symbols for something else, namely the complete physical destruction of all AGW skeptics by any violent and painful nazi-means that seems expedient to the murderous eco-nazis.
I also realise that I have not written nearly enough about this important subject (my precautionary diet on pork and single malt whisky has made me a bit indisposed). This means that I'm far behind e.g. Dr James Delingpole, who has already written 9 posts (and counting) about this momentous event on his Telegraph News Blog.

With the dear James's implicit permission, I'm here reproducing some of his nazi-pictures with very witty captions.
"Und Kinder you vill never guess what happens next...."

Herr Curtis congratulates the 10:10 team on a job well done

And here is one of my own:
"You muzt all reduze your carbon footprint..."

Some people have been using the term "Splatter-gate" to signify this event, but personally I prefer "Nazi-gate". The nazi-people behind the nazi-movie, as well as every-nazi-body that sympathises with them on any kind of nazi-issue, have revealed their total nazi-ness and fanatical terror-fascism for the whole world to see. They are literally drenched in the blood and gore of the innocent from head to toes, and an ill wind of ruthless nazi-oppression and genocidal murder-madness blows wherever they go. They nazi-made their nazi-video to show everbody what will happen to anybody that dares to stand up against their fanatical "Operation Barbarossa" of world conquest and enslavement under their fascist nazi-rule. They intend to bin-Laden-terrorize the whole world with their Pol-Pot-murderous threats and nazi-plans, and their nazi-inquisition will Hunnishly torture and Djingis-Kahn-destroy all opposition, and just anybody that their Gestapo-investigators merely suspect in their Stalinesque paranoia. Their mafia-like cruelty and blood thirst know no bounds, and their eco-fundamentalist Taliban zealotry is limitless. These hordes of nazi-vandals and fascist-barbarians want to destroy civilization and turn us all into mindless communist-slaves on their datjas and in their mosques, and they laugh like Beria at all the pain and suffering they so eagerly cause.
The nazi-nazists are becoming increasingly more desperate since the Great Climategate Scandal. This insane plan of annihilation is a logical next step after their failed attempts to "hide the decline" and "get rid of the Medival Warming Period". These are people with very sick minds! They are evil beyond your worst nightmares! Beware, everybody, beware!

Important message: If you follow my previous advice of sleeping with tin foil wrapped around your head, please make holes for breathing.

Update: I want to clarify that I think that the ad-hominem-throwing eco-nazis are comparable to the Nazis of WWII.

Video detected: Warmists blow up realists in violent ad hominem attacks!

An on-line video has been discovered which reveals the terrible plans of the warmists to eliminate anybody that questions their AGW dogma. This is far worse that the Spanish Inquisition!

As Lubos Motl, always a bulwark of sanity and rationality against the mouth-foaming lunacy of the eco-fascists, comments:

Is there any exaggeration in the movie at all? Maybe, the climate alarmists really want to scare the ordinary people to death - make them think that they will be killed if they openly display the skepticism. What will you do, the ordinary people? Are you scared? Well, believe me, children would surely be scared.
Jamie Glover, a boy who was the first male to explode in the video, was told that he had to be sacrificed to save the world. What did he say afterwards?

Jamie Glover, the child-actor who plays the part of Philip and gets blown up, has similarly few qualms: "I was very happy to get blown up to save the world." The public reaction to the film will be fascinating - please add yours below.

You see that there's no qualitative difference in their methods of brainwashing of the children between the greens and the conventional Islamic jidhadists. They're ready to sacrifice their life for the "highest value". Compare Jamie's answer with the Arabic hit song, "When We Die As Martyrs".

So what can we climate realists do to protect us from this mad plan of annihilation? For starters, we can observe that the victims were made exploding by something planted inside their bodies. Thus, we climate realists and martyrs for Truth must prevent the alarmists from putting anything inside our body cavities. We can achieve this by taking the following precautionary steps:

  • Do not eat anything cooked by an alarmist. To be on the safe side, only eat meat because alarmists don't like to cook meat.

  • Do not have any sexual intercourse with any alarmist, in particular not involving any kinds of "toys" that can be inserted into any of your orifices.

  • Make sure to protect yourself while you are sleeping, lest the alarmists sneak into your bed room and put explosives in your mouth. I recommend covering your face in tin foil. It makes a noise when the alarmists try to remove it.

  • Do not visit alarmist hospitals and medical clinics. In particular, avoid surgery.

  • Do not visit alarmist dentists. They can hide explosives in the caveties of your teeth!

  • Avoid children. They can be brain-washed by the warmists to become living bombs!

  • Always bear arms, in case some psycho warmists attack you and try to force-feed you with a secret bomb!

To be really on the safe side from the insanity of the bat-shit crazy alarmists, we climate realists should all do like the hero John Galt in Atlas Shrugged and escape to a hidden valley where we can live a free life. There we can invent new and fantastic combustion engines and discover new ways to use oil and coal. And meanwhile the ecosuckers that remain in the outside world can mess things up as much as they wish, until they realise their mistakes and start begging on their bare knees for us to come back and lead them in order to save them. "You were right and we were wrong", they will cry. "Please help us!" And then I'm going to tell them: "Ecosuckers, you do not deserve to be rescued." And then they come back again and I tell them: "Ecosuckers, you still do not deserve to be rescued." And when they come back the third time and really crawl in the dirt and weep and cry like bed wetting babies, I tell them: "OK, I will restore prosperity and freedom and democracy, but only if you all promise to do exactly as I tell you and to obey me always and forever." Meanwhile, I have bought all the oil wells and coal mines in the world after the ecosuckers closed them down, and now they have to pay dearly for oil and coal so they don't forget how wrong they were. As the next ice age has started by then, due to oscillations in the iron core of the sun, they will need a lot of oil and coal to stay warm. Their stupid solar panels and wind mills would not work any more!
