Do the Math – Count the cash

Al Gore, Bill McKibben and the color of money: A true religious experience Guest essay by Paul Driessen and Dennis Mitchell Some years ago, a telegenic televangelist built quite an empire, before publicly falling from grace and adopting a less opulent life style. But back then he liked big homes and Lear jets with Rolls…

Bill McKibben’s excellent eco-hypocrisy

I’ve sometimes thought Bill McKibben was little more than a do as I say not as I do type fraud, especially since he flies so much. #greensgobyair . Seems I was right. Via Twitchy: ============================================================= Environmentalist Bill McKibben is the head of the anti-carbon group 350.org as well as a “notable member” of the “Plastic…

Quote of the Week: Bill McKibben’s self delusion

I had a tough time deciding if this should be “Quote of the Week” or “Climate Craziness of the Week”.  The quote is from 350.org’s founder Bill McKibben, who says: I, as you can tell, am the furthest thing from an activist leader. I’m a writer. One might believe that…. except for right above that…

Peter H. Gleick, ‘genius’

In a hilarious claim, Gleick proves once again his genius label is eclipsed by his own dogma. A couple of days ago I got pulled into the Twitter feed of Dr. Peter Gleick, we’ll get to that shortly. You know him, he’s the guy from the Pacific Institute who posed as a board member for…

Leading the way with an unbiased climate panel

Guest essay by Tom Harris Last month, U.S. Rep. David McKinley (R.-WV) hosted an unbiased climate change panel discussion in Fairmont, West Virginia. Experts from both sides of the climate debate participated without restrictions of any kind. McKinley’s open-minded approach is one that should be copied across the United States. Considering what’s at stake—a human-induced…

The rise of the peccatogenesists

An interesting new word came up this week on Twitter thanks to Hillary Rosner. It would seem to be a derivative of the word pecadillo: I think this is the perfect word to describe many of the disingenuous activists like Al Gore, Joe Romm, Brad Johnson, Mayor Bloomberg, and Bill McKibben who see “human caused…

How much do you want to bet global warming causes sharknadoes?

No, really, after the week we’ve had where every opportunist out there is trying to blame global warming for the Moore Oklahoma tornado, I’m not kidding. Sharknadoes are the new EF10. The brief description: When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes…

Now what is ‘death train’ Hansen going to do? Clean coal process developed to extract energy without burning or CO2

From James Hansen’s, Bill McKibben’s and Joe Romm’s worst nightmare department, comes this uplifting science story from the Ohio State University. Basically they found a way to oxidize coal and extract energy without releasing any CO2. When a team of Ohio State students worked around the clock for nine days straight recently, they weren’t pulling…

Boxer’s carbon tax proposal would enrich people already feeding from the public trough… meanwhile Suzanne Goldenberg bags her journalism skills

While the Guardian’s environmental amateur journo Suzanne Goldenberg bloviates about the horrible possibility that some climate skeptic think tanks may have actually gotten a drop in the bucket of funding compared to all the billions of money poured down the climate research hole, we have a money and power grab move front and center by…

BREAKING: Carbon Tax bill coming Thursday to Senate

Senators Bernie Sanders and Barbara Boxer will outline the legislation on Thursday morning. They are even going to let that wacky 350.org activist Bill McKibben speak. Sheesh. Billed as “major” and “comprehensive” legislation, it will have a carbon tax. Here is the statement from Sanders’ office (bold mine):

Propagandist Brad Johnson of ‘Forecast the Facts’ tries to make the pending East Coast blizzard about the ocean ‘warming’ – Fails

You knew it was coming from shameless people like him. Unfortunately, Mr. Johnson doesn’t know the difference between what the Gulf Stream pattern looks like and the rest of the sea surface temperature. I had to laugh when he tweeted this tonight: pic.twitter.com/Rh7tczsW Ummm, that’s the Gulf Stream Brad. It looks like that on a…

Why social media is important in the #climatewars

I noted today that WUWT just passed 6000 followers on Twitter, and 15,000 followers of the blog by email. About the same time, WUWT reached 5000 likes on Facebook. A few years ago, I never much thought social media was worth much, but seeing how Michael Mann and Bill McKibben have been using it to…

Masters, McKibben, and droughting Thomases

Every once in awhile you see something in the “it’s worse than we thought” meme that deserves some clarification for those that want to look at all the data, rather than those who want to push gloom and doom. A recent tweet by Bill McKibben thoughtlessly retweeting a statement by the Master of Disaster, Weather…

Introducing The New WUWT “Extreme Weather” Reference Page

(Photo credits: NOAA) By WUWT regular “Just The Facts” We are pleased to introduce WUWT’s newest addition, the WUWT “Extreme Weather” Reference Page. Realizing the difficulty in selling “Global Warming” when the globe hasn’t warmed in the last 16 years, the Warmists are now attempting to convince the public that CO2 has somehow caused “Extreme…

It’s a planetary emergency!

Environmentalist and author Bill McKibben joins Jennifer Granholm in Al Gore’s CURRENT TV  “The War Room” to talk about the impact that climate change will have during the president’s second term and just how much we’re affecting our planet. McKibben explains, “If 1 degree melts the Arctic, we’re in a world of hurt. This is…

Hurricane Warning; McKibben Alert

With Joe Bastardi stating an opening for an east coast hurricane is possible the next three weeks, it might be timely to submit this semi-humorous look at the dangers of an east coast hurricane versus the dangers of heeding Bill McKibben’s Alarmism, from the view of a writer criticizing a writer, rather than a scientist…

July hottest ever, but U.S. tornado count – lowest since 1951: ‘poisoned weather’ meme falsified by Nature

“Connect the Dots” for this one. Mother Nature has just proven how idiotic some one the arguments trying to link global warming and severe weather are: in this case, the “global warming makes more tornadoes” argument has just gone down in flames. Given how hot July was in the USA, setting a new record high…

Vaporizing the Earth

From Washington University in St. Louis, and in honor of melted globe week, here’s one more thing for weepy Bill McKibben to worry about. In science fiction novels, evil overlords and hostile aliens often threaten to vaporize the Earth. At the beginning of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the officiously bureaucratic aliens called Vogons,…

350.org follows the Mooney directive, but will anyone care?

Hilarity from 350.org, they are following Mooney’s rant: time to act is now right now. I guess they’ll be known as Mooneys now. Expect weepy Bill McKibben to give a melting oratory. July 6, 2012 PHOTO CALL/MEDIA ADVISORY Giant Ice Sculpture On National Mall to Symbolize the Melting Away of Climate Denialism WASHINGTON–On Saturday morning,…

Putting Piers Corbyn to the test

I’ve been given a link in email today to a public forecast page for July by weather prognosticator Piers Corbyn, which you can investigate in full yourself here. I find his web pages and forecasts hard to read, and even harder to accept any more, because in my opinion, he presents them like a carnival…
