I can suggest a politically correct term for mowing lawns and chopping of trees, based on the scientific fact that plants absorb CO2:

Environmental volumetrically challenged carbon enhancement protocol.

Climate Change "Deniers" Should be Forcibly Tattooed

That's exactly what Richard Glover, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald claims. In his mind, anthropogenic global warming is such an obvious certainty and dire threat that "Deniers" need to be forcibly marked to forever mark them as pariahs.

Even for a movement known for absurdly radical stances, like the Kyoto protocol goal of cutting CO2 emissions to below 1990 levels, Glover has a profound detachment from reality.

He thinks the science is settled, and only intentionally wrong-headed people continue to resist the glory of the green plan for the world. It's such a obvious calamity that he compares AGW denial with the left's decades long whitewashing of communist regimes. How convenient. The left made a mistake, and now the right did too, so apparently we should all just forget about the hundreds of millions dead thing.

That's right demanding proof for AGW is morally equivalent to covering up mass genocide.

However in his long smear/argument from intimidation he never provides any evidence to support his position. He never counters any of the arguments made by critics. What about the arguments presented in the Great Global Warming Swindle? What about the whole Climate Gate embarrassment? What about the perpetual string of disproven environmentalist panics like global cooling, acid rain, the hole in the ozone layer, or DDT?

The closest he comes is saying that deniers claim climate change ended in 1998, and therefore they are stupid. I've certainly never heard anyone make that claim.

I have heard the claim that mean temperatures have been declining since `1998, and therefore any model which predicted rising temperatures is obviously deeply flawed. However, it's much easier to knock over straw men that he sets up.

In addition to the whole lack of evidence problem for AGW, he never shows that rising temperatures are a bad thing. An increase in temperatures would allow greater utilization of currently unusably cold areas of the planet like Canada. Cold dead tundra, could host new life, and provide more food to supply man's needs. I see no evidence that the "little ice age" we are coming out of was a good thing. What was so bad about the medieval warm period which certainly wasn't caused by industry?

In the end, we see that the Global Warming (or climate change) movement is intellectually bankrupt. They no longer have science on their side, all they have left is threats and smugly self satisfied arguments from authority.

Sometimes you do really wonder about the mental state of some warmers. This is an old one but worth repeating.

Sheryl Crow's view on toilet paper: one sheet a visit
Environmental movements: Singer tells the Global Warming College Tour to limit use to one square normally, two to three squares on 'pesky occasions'

Quote:
Crow's environmental opinions are not limited to toilet paper. She also believes paper napkins "represent the height of wastefulness", while she has designed a clothing line which features a detachable "dining sleeve" that wearers can use to wipe their mouth while eating

No intelligence and no hygiene! YUK!

PS; who the heck is Sheryl Crow anyway.

Okay, I've got some oldies but goldies. Starting with this hilarious take on denier graphing skills.



"Remember to apply your blog science skills and question everything. Question, for example, the conventional "wisdom" that says y-axes must go vertically and x-axes horizonally.Why should time go horizontally and extent go vertically? Remember that actual ice extent is a measure of the horizontal spread of sea ice, so in many respects by making the Y-axis more horizontal I have displayed the data in a more correct manner than so-called "phd scientists" do."

They also manage to uncover that the Oregon Petition is, in fact, a warmista conspiracy.

I'll admit I've laughed my way through their entire back-catalogue.

Also, in what is possible the debate of the century, lets see TONY ABBOTT debate .... TONY ABBOTT on the topic of climate change. Perhaps this should have gone in the politics thread?

Green Power !!!!!!!

So the scrub counteracts the CO2 emissions . RIGHT .

So they've Offset the Brown coal burning that was needed to smelt all the aluminium and silica to produce the panels and finally the transport emmitted carbon from shipping the panels from China ... RIGHT ! ? hehe
