Will the mainstream media pick this up? Mooo!!!

The answer is probably no. They're so caught up in showing the cycle of chunks of ice falling off glaciers, never mind the cold weather all across North America.

But I almost gave up hope. The mainstream media was showing simple graphs on how the greenhouse effect works (by only showing CO2!) on websites, how politicians call greenhouse gases harmful (water vapour is harmful?), and how Prime Minister Harper is being lambasted for a letter that was sent to Canadian Alliance members back in 2002 (we'll get to that in a moment).

Then the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) puts a report out saying that the climate problem isn't man, but COWS!!!

"The 400-page report by the FAO, entitled “Livestock's Long Shadow,” also
surveys the damage done by sheep, chickens, pigs and goats. But in almost
every case, the world's 1.5 billion cattle are most to blame. Livestock are responsible for 18 percent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together. "
Oh great, now the vegetarians are going to say, I told you so, but we'll have to get rid of all the cows, so PETA will be upset. What are we to do?

Okay, onto Prime Minister Harper. The sneaky Liberals found this letter which sent out when Harper was leader of the opposition:

“Kyoto is essentially a socialist scheme to suck money out of
wealth-producing nations,” says the letter, signed by Mr. Harper.

“Implementing Kyoto will cripple the oil and gas industry, which is
essential to the economies of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta
and British Columbia . . .

“Workers and consumers everywhere in Canada will lose. THERE ARE NO

He also blasted the treaty for targeting carbon dioxide — which he said is
“essential to life” — and played down the science of climate change as
“tentative and contradictory.”

He was right! The Kyoto Accord IS a socialist scheme and it does nothing to curtail pollution and smog.

This blog has been recently dedicated to showing the myth that man is causing global warming.

But I'm now worried though. The Conservatives haven't really fought that fight at all to challenge the debate of whether or not man made CO2 is causing global warming.

I think the Dion election to the Liberal leadership caught them off-guard on the environment file and it is difficult when the mainstream media hasn't picked up on Dion's faults. The Conservatives had no choice but to air some TV ads informing Canadians about what Dion has said during his race.

Environment Minister John Baird supposedly just cut a deal with the NDP on the Clean Air Act. Not sure what that entails yet, but I'm hoping that the Conservatives will tip-toe around any measure that pinpoints CO2 emissions rather than real pollution.

Dion is accusing Harper of being a climate change denier. We know that Dion will never realize that Kyoto has nothing to do with climate change. Harper has and is denying Kyoto, not climate change, which is happening, as it has been happening for billions of years, it's just that climate science is an extremely difficult science to pin down as there are millions of parameters involved.

And according to the UNFAO, the real gaseous emissions are coming from cattle. For a sec there, I thought it was the Liberals again.

FLQ or ALQaeda?

This is very, very disturbing.

Why is this so-called "FLQ" threatening acts of terrorism? I don't know, sounds like Al-Qaeda to me.

But I've always wondered about the link between the FLQ and the PQ. Maybe they're aligning with the Al-Q?

It's a serious question.

Climatic hubris: The Ellesmere Island ice shelves have been disappearing since they were first mapped in 1906

Yay! More newspapers are publishing the truth from scientists with historical evidence about the global warming hysteria not conjecture and computer models.

We need to put our energies and resources into solving real environmental
problems -- air, water and land pollution, the loss in biodiversity, and urban
sprawl, to name just a few. "Stabilizing the Earth's climate" as suggested by
Suzuki's science director, is sheer fantasy. Its time to chill out on climate
change hysteria.

I get the feeling more and more scientists are finally stepping up to plate, so I'm probably going to say less about it, especially since it snowed in Los Angeles and was -18C in Kansas (where I am right now).

Some may ask whether I believe that climate change is a problem. Well, do I believe the climate is effected by human activity? No. But I do know the climate has changed a lot on this planet ever since we had an atmosphere and will continue to do so. I don't think Mother Nature cares whether the climate isn't ideal for all the humans in Toronto.

What's truly alarming about the envirocommies is that they complain about the SUVs and big oil companies, but I never hear them talk about the big non-Kyoto signing communist China, the big heat/pollution island of Mexico City, or, I don't know, the fact that the population of the planet has doubled since about 1960.

These Suzuki socialists love to blame the rich, would love to introduce carbon taxes and pull another NEP on Alberta, damage the economy again, and horde natural resource revenues from the provinces.

Okay, that's enough ranting for the time being. It's just so frustrating.

Myths of Kyoto

Finally, the media is pitching in! Peter Worthington from the Toronto Sun has his comments regarding the politics of Kyoto and the hot air out there.


  • "The sun (which is getting hotter) and increased cloud cover (from evaporation) tends to insulate the earth's heat. We can all remember a couple of years ago global warming was blamed (by people who should know better) for the rash of hurricanes that plagued the southern states. Last year was even warmer -- and virtually no hurricanes. "
  • "Today we read that global warming is melting the polar icecap -- when there is no polar icecap. It's sea ice, or floating ice. Yes, the Western Arctic is getting warmer, but on Greenland ice is even thicker than normal, and the Antarctic ice cap is increasing. "
  • "The U.S. wants polar bears on the endangered species list, and GW is blamed for polar bears having a tough year in the Arctic. Yet polar bears are adept at surviving, and are no more endangered today than they were 50 years ago. "


You may be asking why I'm going on about the myths of global warming. Let's just say I feel the need to counteract the lies and misconceptions hyped by one Liberal Leader, an NDP Leader, and all the environmental lobbyists.

What will be interesting to see is how the new environment minister, John Baird, will handle all this. He's supposedly "Mr. Fix It". But will he fix the current Conservative government policy or the spin?

I hope it's the spin.

Hot Air

You know, I think I've figured it out. If you took everyone who believed, is spouting out, or muzzling naysayers and nonpartisan scientists that global warming is real, that climate change is somehow a new phenomena, that the science is solid, that CO2 is bad and is causing rising temperatures ... if you took all these people and stopped them from exhaling CO2, then I think maybe, ... just maybe you be pretty close to meeting their demands for reducing CO2 emissions.

Can we give it a timeline? Because you know, they want these hot air emissions to be at 1990 levels by 2010. Hmmm, how many of these folks were around yapping about "global warming" in 1990? In fact in the 70's and 80's it was all about "global cooling". But now, they're everywhere. Do you see the correlation?

What's ironic is that this is the same logic they use to prove global warming is caused by human activity, which it's not.

Dion's backward economy

Does Stephane Dion have any clue about how the economy works?

He told the university audience that he would not follow through with a promise
by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to reduce the GST to five per cent, from six
per cent, by 2011. ''(The GST cut) is $5.5 billion out of the economy
every year
and it will not transform the economy and it is not a good
social policy,'' Dion said.

Out? How the hell does not leaving more money in the hands of consumers considered taking it out of the economy?

There's only one way and that's through government spending. That's how Dion wants to "transform the economy" ... yeah, into a purely socialist one. Not that's any new news to most, but this should drive away most of the blue liberals and middle class away from the Liberal Party.

Oh wait...

But you know why he wants more money for the government? To pay for the mythical Kyoto carbon credits we have to buy from other countries to reduce carbon dioxide emissions which have no correlation with global temperatures, not actual pollution.

Yeah, doing that would really transform the Canadian economy. It's sure "not good social policy", but it sure is good socialist policy.

More hype on global warming spouted by none other than it's master ...

Dion said he doesn’t want an election now and needs to get his party

“I don’t think Canadians want an election during the winter,” he said, then
joked: “Where is the winter?” - a reference to the unseasonably mild
temperatures in much of the country.

Perhaps he should visit Edmonton in the next couple weeks.
