Inconvenient Backlash Update

Lots of interesting things going on lately.

Licia Corbella has a great column in today's Sun (Debunking Global Warming Myths). She refers to the Great Global Warming Swindle which is a must-see.

The film is best accessed via A Dog Named Kyoto.

Also, fellow BT MolarMauler has given me a link to a debate scheduled for tonight in New York City - 'Global Warming is Not a Crisis' Debate.

Just black out the windows when you check this stuff out. The Kyoto Klimate Kops are watching.

Update: Please check out PTBC - Only (not) in Canada, you say?

Saturday Update: Salim Mansur - Climate Under Fire:

Science does not have a Vatican, a clergy and a doctrine to defend. Science is an activity of fallible human beings striving to understand the workings of nature, and one tool in its arsenal is skepticism.

But when science gets co-opted by politics (often corrupt) or religion (wherein faith is primary) then skepticism is placed under a cloud, and inquisition is close at hand.

Joanne, that link I gave you is straight from Bill's place.
Don't want to take credit for finding the info, I'm just really darn interested in it that's all.

someone needs to start pointing out that the other planets in our solar system have seen a gradual increase in surface temperature which coinsides with our own... The blog the other day on Dion fighting to reduce CO2 on Pluto was priceless!!!

That was my favourite talented and brilliant Comment Whore, ChuckerCanuk.

Seems like Kaptain Krime might need to talk with his leadership co-chair about his announcement to hire more RCMP officers.

It looks like the debate will show up on the NPR download page sometime in the near future (they have the previous debates in the IQ2 series here):

Looking at the event information (http://www.intelligencesquaredus.org/Event.aspx?Event=12), I see that the "Good Guys" won!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Thanks for the links and tips, guys!

Rene, lol! It took me a while to get your joke. Good one though!

So Kaptain Kyoto is a born-again Krime fighter. The mind boggles with mental images. Dion in tights and a cape.

Unwanted mental images...

OT,
but starting to see budget coverage.

It seems while the Liberals gave us tax "relief",

the CPC are handing out tax "goodies".

Spoiling even further us undeserving taxpayers, while the Statist nanny has better things to do with our own money.

Expect much more of this. Giving back our own mony are "goodies" that will "cost" a lot. Tax relief will be "expensive" as if the money goes to Mars, instead of back into our pockets, and then to the economy to buy things that people with jobs produce.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Good points, Biff. They all try to seduce us with our own money.

molarmauler said...

Heh, they would rather take all our money and invest in people... whatever.

Another_Sean!!! Thanks. You saved me some hunting this morning with your link.
The poll results that you can leak to there show the 46% win is huger than it seems since the pre-debate agreement with their position was around 30%. It was a pretty good swing. The good guys won the on-line poll as well.

I hope the transcript comes up soon.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

I hope the transcript comes up soon.

Me too. Should be interesting.

Micheal Crichton on Charlie Rose

Thanks, Molar. I just started listening to it.

Looks like another book is going on my library list...
