Since our post on hurricanes and hot air when we commented on Elizabeth May’s misguided conviction that global warming -if it is happening- is our fault and that there is a link to an increase and strength of hurricanes, Alan Caruba has written his assessment of the same subject.
I am waiting for some moron in Obama’s campaign team to announce that the devastation of Hurricane Ike is the fault of the Bush administration.
Worse yet, I am waiting for some moron in McCain’s campaign team to say something stupid about “global warming” as the reason for the hurricane. Since the Earth has been in a cooling cycle now for the passed ten years, you can be fairly certain that (a) there is no global warming and (b) there’s no connection to the recent hurricanes.
Alan also refers to Dr. Gray the hurricane tracking pioneer [has he been reading ww?]
We should all listen when Dr. Gray, now an emeritus professor, tells us that those scientists still claiming that global warming is real are “brainwashing our children.” They brainwashed a jury of British morons who last week delivered a verdict that said it is perfectly okay for environmental activists to vandalize and destroy property in the name of global warming.
Read that last sentence again. Yes, you read right – The Independent reports that a UK jury cleared some Greenpeace vandals, who damaged a power plant, because they were acting to save the planet!
The threat of global warming is so great that campaigners were justified in causing more than £35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station, a jury decided yesterday. In a verdict that will have shocked ministers and energy companies the jury at Maidstone Crown Court cleared six Greenpeace activists of criminal damage.
Jurors accepted defence arguments that the six had a “lawful excuse” to damage property at Kingsnorth power station in Kent to prevent even greater damage caused by climate change. The defence of “lawful excuse” under the Criminal Damage Act 1971 allows damage to be caused to property to prevent even greater damage – such as breaking down the door of a burning house to tackle a fire.
Holy smoke. We hope the crown appeals but this is proof that brainwashing leads to brain death. Elizabeth May – are you listening?
