Another week, another round-up from The Daily Bayonet!

Hippie Dave gets mad at skeptics again, the IPCC gags scientists for their own good and Ontarians are rising up against a new eco-fee stealth tax.These and 100+ more stories hippies don’t want you to read, plus an Ontario hottie, just because.
Some housekeeping notes, the round-up no longer features links to the UK’s The Times or Sunday Times since they have hidden everything behind a paywall. Where possible, relevant stories are linked via alternative sources. For links to global warming hoax stories throughout the week, follow The Daily Bayonet on Twitter, because a whole week is just too long to wait for good snark.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

The halo is slipping as more news of bad behavior by the self-appointed Goreacle comes to light:

A journalistic colleague I had no reason to doubt told anyone who would listen that Vice President Al Gore had tried to stick his tongue down her throat out of nowhere at a New Year’s Eve party in the mid-’90s, when all she’d been expecting was a friendly peck.

That story is just one, as Gore’s reputation (and credibility) slide into the negatives stories like that will give Al all the global warming he can take.The stress of a pending legal problem seems to have affected Al, surely that can be the only explanation for him mistaking weather for climate? Unless he’s just a shallow hack trying to keep the hoax money rolling in, of course.

The good folks at Ihatethemedia posted an ad to welcome Al to California:

click for full snarky goodness

The Gore puppets at Alliance for Climate Protection were outraged that the Wall Street Journal dared to point out that the climategate inquiries were whitewashes, and urged the public to suppress the press. What’s wrong with their global warming hoax when just one newspaper article is so threatening?

If you look up the definition of chutzpah, there’s a picture of Al Gore. ‘The politicization of science’ is bad, he says. Gore must mean when anyone other than himself is doing it.

In Canada, the authoritarian hippie geneticist Suzuki managed to invoke religious imagery with a ‘sacred duty‘call to green arms before he forgot himself and wrote another one filled with invective against ‘deluded deniers’ again:

We use the term deniers deliberately. People who deny overwhelming scientific evidence without providing any compelling evidence of their own and who remain steadfast in their beliefs even as every argument they propose gets shot down do not demonstrate the intellectual rigour to be called skeptics.

Considering that his spittle-flecked attack is based on the three roundly-condemned whitewashes of climategate and an erroneous retraction from a UK paper, it’s difficult to imagine hippie Dave was able to spell ‘intellectual rigour’ without help.

Think you’re done?  Not by a longshot.  Head on over to The Daily Bayonet for Parts 2 through 5, including the weekly Global Hottie.

Via The Daily Bayonet, your weekly feast:

Canada’s primary hippie discovers that he’s a loser, the President might be going to Maine and alarmists have discovered the perfect headline.All this, a Bond girl and snark galore in your weekly round-up.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

For all the news you can stomach about Al Gore and the masseuse, take a peek at the Chakraquiddick Round-up.  There will be no further reference to the Goreacle in any state of undress here this week, so relax.  The only reference to the entire sordid episode is whether or not Steve Jobs should suspend Gore from the Apple board for potentially contravening  the firm’s sexual harassment rules.

Gore popped his head over the parapets of one or other of his many mansions to fire off a blog post about the Times’ retraction of their Amazongate story.  Of course, the retraction itself is under fire as being unnecessary, for all of that and more, North’s your man.

Gore also blogged about the electoral challenge to AB32, Kallivornya’s global warming law.  Al blames big oil for trying to save the golden state’s economy kill the bill.

Hide the decline?  Tom Nelson skewers the climate cult’s spiritual leader for being a slacker at creating new acolytes.

The Jerusalem Post pulled on its steel-toed boots, laced them carefully and proceeded to unleash a swift kick to the Gorenads:

So why aren’t I grateful to Al Gore for highlighting the environment? Simply put, he overdid it. Saving a tree, however important, is never as significant as saving a human life. Stopping a rain forest from being decimated is still subordinate to stopping genocide.

What Al Gore did was create a level of hysteria that elevated the environment to the foremost moral cause of our time, even as Africans continue to die in Darfur, Zimbabweans continue to be brutalized by Robert Mugabe, Iranians continue to be cut down by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hugo Chavez’s reign of terror intensifies by the day in a once-free Venezuela.

So many people of goodwill who might have worked to bring clean water to Africa, to stop the scourge of AIDS or to battle the oppression of women in the Arab world contented themselves with climbing up trees and ensuring they weren’t cut down. I love the Earth but I refuse to deify it. Human life is still the crown jewel of creation.

What the JP missed was that Al can’t make scads of money or win shiny, meaningless prizes by feeding Africa or stopping wars, so why should he care?

neither of these is particularly bright

Canada’s totalitarian hippie David Suzuki looks back on his life and discovers he’s a total loser:

When he started his David Suzuki Foundation in 1990, he says, the feeling among environmentalists was that “the 1990s had to be the turnaround decade. When I started the foundation, I said, ‘We’ve 10 years. Every penny we raise we’re going to spend because we’ve only got 10 years [to make a difference].’ Well, it’s 20 years later. We’re still fighting the same battles.

“So these things have impacted our lives enormously and we need science to inform us as best it can about what the implication might be. And quite frankly, as far as I’m concerned, I feel all the effort that I’ve been involved in has really failed. We’re going backward.”

Ow, the laughing, it hurts.

That’s NOT all folks!  You’ve still got Parts 2 through 5 (including the weekly Global Hottie) waiting for you at The Daily Bayonet.

Here’s the weekly round-up courtesy of The Daily Bayonet.  Why?  Because skeptics have more fun:

Al Gore morphs into El Grope and continues his rapid descent into PR hell.  Warmist hippies draw up an enemies list, David Suzuki drops the F bomb in a cafe and a Beatle is concerned with ‘climate warming’.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore is in the news again.  Last week it was revealed that the Goreacle had been porking his movie producer, this week an Inconvenient Tryst is with a masseuse who claims that Al tried to get a happy ending when it wasn’t on the menu.  Accusations are that the green guru turned into El Grope to such an extent that a police report was filed. Tom has salacious bits if you don’t want to read it all.  Tipper is now odds-on favorite to win the top honors at the 2010 Good Timing Awards.

One thing to be grateful for, that El Grope wasn’t around in the 1930‘s.

Al continued to promote the Gore enrichment scheme with an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.  It’s behind a subscription wall, but the great man excerpted a little for us peons:

“There are several well understood advantages inherent in capitalism that make it superior to any other system for organizing economic activity. It has proven to be far more efficient in the allocation of resources and the matching of supply with demand, far more effective at wealth creation, and far more conducive to high levels of freedom and political self-governance. At the most basic level, however, capitalism has become the world’s economic ideology of choice primarily because it demonstrably unlocks a higher fraction of the human potential with ubiquitous organic incentives that reward hard work, ingenuity and innovation.”

That sounds great, but it’s a pity the green horde of ecotards inspired by Al dislike capitalism so much.

Canada’s David Suzuki hasn’t been caught sleeping with anyone, or doing anything interesting in fact.  He has decided to play along with the UN’s new scare du jour, the biodiversity hedge strategy in case global warming falls apart totally.

Suzuki is always portrayed as the nice friendly guy, except when he is calling for his political enemies to be jailed, that is.  So it’s a shock to read of one blogger’s encounter with a not so friendly hippy Dave:

Then, he placed me, or so it seemed.  ”You’re the fish farmer,” he said. I had barely begun to explain that yes, I used to work in fish farming – seven years ago – but before I could say much Dr. Suzuki looked me straight in the eye and started telling me to f**k off. Not just once. Then, suddenly, he seemed to catch himself, and quickly sat down.

“and then I squished her head”

Nice.  Peace, love and understanding, right man?

You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here. I’d recommend you head over to The Daily Bayonet for Parts 2 through 5, including the much anticipated weekly Global Hottie.

It’s the weekly Round-Up:

Our clever planet tries to offset a volcano by grounding aircraft, a hippie lawyer wants ‘deniers’ tried for ecocide and those skeptics outside of the USA will be very surprised to learn that they are all Republicans.

So, what better week to have a right of center hottie?

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore took a tough line against coal this week, especially mountaintop mining.  He praises efforts to put thousands of people out of work and make energy more expensive for Americans.  Of course, that means that the EPA will have to declare another non-pollutant a pollutant:

“The legislation, which is co-sponsored by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), would redefine mining waste as a pollutant, thus barring companies from dumping debris into valleys below their mountaintop projects. The idea is that if it becomes too expensive to truck the debris off-site, then companies will stop blowing up mountains altogether.??”

Coal was only the first fuel that Al wasn’t happy about, he also had his first disagreement with President Obama over the cynical new drilling initiative (that pretty much doesn’t allow for much actual, um, drilling)

Here’s a look at Al avoiding awkward questions in a ‘why can’t I just eat my waffle‘ moment:

Kleiner Perkins, an investment firm that boasts Al gore as a partner, lost a lot of money betting on… a new way to locate oil.  Wait, what?

Now we know why Kleiner Perkins tried to hide their involvement:

Kleiner Perkins, a firm that loudly promotes its most promising investments, for years didn’t list Terralliance on its website and declined multiple requests to comment for this article. Despite interviews with many of the key people involved, it’s also not clear what exactly Terralliance’s technology purported to do, or how well its investors understood it.  What is certain is that Terralliance’s gambit to become a force in oil exploration ended badly.

Al hearts Paul Krugman, because Krugman thinks that pricing carbon is a good thing, and that will make Al a very rich man indeed.

That’s part one of this week’s Round-Up – for Parts Two through Five, including the weekly Global Hottie, you’ll have to magically transport yourself to The Daily Bayonet.

Oh goody!  It’s that time of the week skeptics: Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up time:

Pity the flat-headed cat, for it is doomed.  Also, Greenpeace throws a threat down the memory hole, green groups conspire against Africa and Britain is bankrupt but just doesn’t know it, yet.

After all that doom and gloom, you need the hottie.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore has been hiding from the press again, but fortunately for us that means that he’s been blogging from his Tennessee energy sink headquarters.

Al the blogger posted his approval of Best Buy for criticizing the US Chamber of Commerce’s stance against the global warming hoax:

“Best Buy’s commitment to sustainability aligns with global interests in addressing climate change. Best Buy is an innovator in offering our customers products and services that enable them to live more sustainably.”

And by ‘living sustainably’, BB means selling you that giant energy-sucking TV screen.  Sheesh.

Al also accorded his approval of paper giant Weyerhaeuser Co for joining his Climate Action Partnership.  There must be some federal bucks available, the only reason for a logging/paper firm to join the CAP is if there is some corporate welfare in it.

Earth Day is coming… and here’s Al to push the Depower America agenda:

Gore Lied, dead?  No wait… there is a new post with news that an Al Gore trained hippie scaremonger no longer likes to talk about climate because it’s a ‘polarizing issue’.  heh.

Apparently there are a lot of climate volunteers who no longer like to talk about climate.

Al applauded 21 Senators who wrote Harry Reid to demand a clean energy bill.  Perhaps they are concerned that Obama care won’t bankrupt America fast enough.

As President Obama pretended to announce more drilling options, Al’s pet Fox disagreed with even the appearance of allowing more drilling:

“The path to a secure energy future in America begins with clean, renewable sources here at home. Expanded oil drilling will simply continue our reliance on dirty fossil fuels, while doing little to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The President must now deliver a comprehensive plan for curbing carbon pollution so we can invest in the clean energy technologies we will need in the 21st century.”

Either that or Al will have to find a way to invest as heavily in oil and gas firms as he has in ‘clean energy technologies‘.  Remember, kids… Al’s in this for the money, ’saving’ the planet has nothing to do with it.

You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here – if you want the rest of the Round-Up that is. You’ll have to visit The Daily Bayonet for Parts 2 through 5 (including the weekly Global Hottie).

Round-Up time!

Al Gore upsets nerds and pervs in one week, we discover that eco-terrorists are Riverdance fans and dirty hippies want you to stop bathing, of course.This Saturday is Earth hour, so be a good skeptic and turn all the lights on and show the world you’re no hippie.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Al Gore is a genius.  He found two new audiences this week, though perhaps not in the way he might have liked.  First, the geek squad that is comic-con fears that an appearance at a competing event by manbearpig might wreck the nerdfest.  Al only has to be in the vicinity for things to go wrong, jut wait until the Gore effect kicks in an the nerds are neck deep in global warming.

Not only did Al get the attention of geeks, he also got the pervs.  Penthouse magazine strips the covers off Climategate and exposes Al’s role in An Inconvenient Fraud.  They also have the best picture of Gore since the last best picture of Gore:

Dr. Evil indeed

Penthouse sets up Al nicely for the dressing down that follows:

It was good to be Al Gore in the last part of the last decade. In the year 2000 he was the world’s biggest loser. By 2009 he was one of the world’s biggest winners after becoming the master of disaster. Flummoxed by his noninvention of the Internet and his nonelection as president of the United States, Gore found a winning hand in predicting the end of the world. In the process, he received an Oscar for his film An Inconvenient Truth, the Nobel Peace Prize, and millions of dollars through his interests in companies that dealt in “carbon credits.” Gore became more of a “Comeback Kid” than Bill Clinton ever was. For most of 2009, it was still good to be King Al. But late in the year, Al Gore’s beloved Internet betrayed him.

Al is going to California, where LA mayor Villasomethingorother will sign a ‘carbon reduction surcharge’, something that Al approves of but that will only make more people leave the state for business friendly regions like Texas.

Al blogged that 2,000 scientists signed a call to the Senate for action on global warming.  Apparently, the Goreacle still thinks that a large enough number of people in agreement offset the truth that there is no such thing as global warming.  Also, inconveniently for Al, a lot of the signatories aren’t proper scientists, not yet anyway.

Just in case 2,000 nearly-sciencytists isn’t enough to convince you that global warming is going to kill you, Al turned to renowned climate expert and villager Marisa Marcavillaca of Peru.  I’m not kidding, he really did that.  On purpose.

Remember Waxman-Malarky?  Now that the health care debate is over and Americans can look forward to the same non-access to care that we Canadians enjoy, the green agenda is back on the Washington radar.  Al points to a screed by Ed Markey who touted the benefits of weatherization programs and solar power.  He might have picked better programs that the two most troubled ones out there, but he’s a Democrat so he gets points for trying.

Proceed on to The Daily Bayonet for Parts 2 through 5. Enjoy!

It’s Thursday, and therefore it’s time for  Must See TV and The Cosby Show Must Click Internet and the Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up:

London has a new building that can shred birds, appropriately called ‘The Razor’, the green mask slips to reveal some very inconvenient truths and we learn  about the missing link between cargo cults and global warming science.

All this, and a popular but mystery hottie besides in this week’s round-up.

Part One: Al Gore & Friends

Global warming profiteer prophet Al Gore wagged a stern finger at the GOP for something he called a ‘litmus test’ on the topic of global warming.  Gore said:

The idea that a rejection of science is a litmus test for Republican candidates is both incredibly disappointing and scary. No political party should require its members to reject fact as a prerequisite for electoral office.

The problem of course, is that the ’science’ of global warming is of the junk variety, and should be resoundingly rejected.  Someone wake up Mitt, please.

El Nino hearts Al Gore.  The AIT rose again, which means that we are all doomed, or something.

Al turned to academia for a little self-validation and to be told that skeptics are serial deniers about anything dear to the hearts of hippies, ‘acid rain, the ozone hole, secondhand cigarette smoke, global warming and the pesticide DDT.’  Gore seems hell-bent on explaining skepticism as a sign of mental weakness, when really he is the one leading a flock of the gullible while the rest of us happily use the gray matter.  As for his academic friend, well, she has a history with Al:

Oreskes’s most recent work deals with the science of climate change. Her 2004 essay “The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change” (Science 306: 1686), led to Op-Ed pieces in the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Los Angeles Times, and has been widely cited in the mass media, including National Public Radio (Fresh Air), The New Yorker, USA Today, Parade, as well as in the Royal Society’s publication, “A guide to facts and fictions about climate change,” and, most recently, in Al Gore’s movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Cozy, no?

If you were wondering why Al goes to all the trouble to blog and prop up the global warming hoax, just remember, it’s always about the money with Al.

Two weeks ago Al wrote in the New York Times and chided skeptics that recent snowstorms were not proof that global warming was fake.  This week, heavy rain in the North-Eastern US is proof of global warming.  Weather is not climate, unless you’re Al Gore, or Mr. Inconsistent if you prefer.

Big Journalism profiles Al Gore, and they’re not very reverent about the global warming reverend.

radical, dude

Washington is focused on the great health care debate, yet Al still wants the government to ‘Repower America’, or if you want the honest interpretation the ‘dePower America and make Al rich’ campaign.

Canada’s Gore-poodle David ‘Jail ‘Em’ Suzuki is frustrated that the federal budget didn’t mention green energy.  Then, without warning, a time-warp swallowed Suzuki and transported him to a time before Climategate from which he sent this nonsense:

Aside from climate change – one of the greatest crises ever faced by humanity – our reliance on fossil fuels like oil and gas and uranium is still suicidal. The pollution alone from burning fossil fuels is degrading the health of humans and all life on this planet. The consumer mentality that it encourages is also fuelling rapid depletion of other resources, as well as the destruction of agricultural lands and habitats for plants and animals that are essential to our survival. The fact that we’re not even extracting the resources we have in a sustainable way that benefits all Canadians will only compound the long-term problems for our country and the rest of the world.

In other words, ‘back to the stone age’, folks.

The complete Round-Up (all 5 parts) can be found at The Daily Bayonet, and there’s a hottie waiting for ya.
