Global Warming Protest cancelled due to Cold Summer Weather

PEOPLE POWERLESS

From the Tim Blair Blog, November 23, 2008

The nine-day People’s Power for the Climate protest vigil at Newcastle has been cancelled after just one day due to rain and cold. Organisers had previously advised participants to bring sun-cream and hats.

This outcome was predictable.

Cyclists brave freezing cold temperatures to protest Global Warming

By the blogowner, honestclimate, October 26, 2008

Further to my September post titled: Why global warming protests should be held in Summer, student volunteers from colleges around New York State braved freezing cold temperatures on their bikes Wednesday to send a message to state and federal political candidates: pay attention to climate change.

The New York Public Interest Research Group helped organize the ride. Environmentalists cheered on the bikers as they stopped in Utica around noon. They want candidates to let voters know what they plan to do about global warming and the energy crisis.

NYPIRG and several other public interest groups also sent letters to the candidates, urging them to support policies that will dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The story of the Witchdoctor and his Climate Predictions

"Throwing the bones" for climate prediction

Witchdoctor: Throwing the bones for climate prediction

By the blogowner, honestclimate, October 21, 2008

A long time ago in a far away place, long before the advent of the internet and telephones, the Witchdoctor of the tribe was not only responsible for curing medical ailments, but also for climate prediction.

Under the pretence of “throwing the bones” the Witchdoctor would claim to know if it would be a sunny day or if a storm would be on its way. He had a 100% track record with his climate predictions, but it had nothing to do with throwing the bones. The modus operandi of the Witchdoctor was to run 20km every morning to the top of the mountain to see if there were dark clouds or clear sky. If dark clouds were brewing he would run back to the village to “throw the bones” and proclaim that a storm was coming.

The tribe and chief praised him daily for his accurate predictions and the Witchdoctor loved the attention he was getting.

Vice Chief of Tribe, Al Gore

The Vice Chief was a very bitter man after losing to the Chief by a mere one vote in the tribal election. But the Vice Chief had a good eye for making money. When the Witchdoctor proclaimed that a storm was coming, the Vice Chief insisted everyone from the tribe bring him a gift, to “appease the weather gods”. This made the Vice Chief a very wealthy man.

One day whilst on his way back from the mountain, the Witchdoctor was almost home when he tripped over a rock and broke both his legs. Unable to run up the mountain to check the cloud cover, the Witchdoctor kept getting his predictions wrong. The tribes people started getting very annoyed. The Witchdoctor kept vehemently stating that a big storm was coming and that it would be the biggest storm they’d ever see and that it would kill many people. This did not happen. The tribes people were growing more and more tired of the catastrophic storm predictions, whilst the sky remained clear for a long time. Eventually they burnt the Witchdoctor at the stake.

Fast forward a couple of hundred years and today we no longer use the term Witchdoctors, but rather Spindoctors ie. James Hansen, Stephen Schneider etc. The “throwing of the bones” has been replaced by fancy computer models. But like the throwing of the bones, computer models are a very inaccurate way of predicting climate. So instead of running up the mountain to look at the cloud cover, the modern climate scientist looks at climate trends in the charts. If the trend is down we’re heading for a catastrophic ice-age. If the trend is up we’re heading for catastrophic global warming. Dr Stephen Schneider is well known for using this method of climate prediction. And just as was the case in tribal times where the tribe was blamed for annoying the weather gods, so today we are also blamed for climate change.

The climate scientists of today broke their legs in 1998. How long before the public gets completely fed up and burns them at the stake?

Global Warming Threatens Australia’s Iconic Kangaroos but eating kangaroo combats climate change

Eat me!

Eat me!

Mmmm, kangaroo steak

By the blogowner, honestclimate, October 16, 2008

Scientists advise that the kangaroo is in danger from global warming, but have no fear because Ross Garnaut has advised that eating skippy will actually combat climate change…

“Global Warming” responsible for frosts

Global Warming causes frost???

Global Warming causes frost?

From Australian Climate Madness, October 15, 2008

Although we don’t call it “global warming” now, we call it “climate change”, which covers every possible eventuality. A journalist at the Northern Argus couldn’t resist the temptation to blame “climate change” for increased frosts in the Clare Valley, which are causing problems for winemakers.

And if anyone has had their doubts about climate change, [grapegrower] Martin Smith said the effects had been noticeable in the Polish Hill River region.

“We’d never seen frosts in more than 100 years here, and now we have had two years of frost, in 2005 and 2007, with dry years in between.”

That’s the wonderful thing about climate change – it’s so versatile! Read it here.
