Hail Al

The new prayer for the climate changers:

Hail Algore,

Full of hot air,

The media is with thee.

Blessed art thou among politicians,

and blessed is the fruit of your imagination – Climate Change.

Wise Al,

Father of melting polar ice,

Give us our carbon offsets now,

and save us in the hour of our melting.

Amen

Wind Turbines for Thee, but Not for Me

NIMBY, NIMBY, NIMBY – this example from New York of all wonderfully liberal places:

Naples, N.Y. — The Town Board Monday unanimously rejected a proposed wind-turbine project in the town, determining the gigantic power-generating machines would have a negative effect on the environment. The board also agreed it wants to impose a six-month moratorium on wind turbines, though that decision requires a public hearing and final board vote.


“Most people did not want wind turbines,” Town Supervisor Margaret Dunn said Tuesday.

Come, come now people.  The Messiah has decreed that you will have electricity if the wind blows or the sun shines.  Why in the world would good New Yorkers not want wind turbines?

Last month, hundreds of residents in this Yates County town of 1,000, bordering Naples, turned out largely to voice their opposition to turbines in an emotionally charged gathering. Most of the 116 residents who spoke at the meeting were against the machines, said Dunn.

When the board convened Monday, it determined the 17 proposed turbines would have a negative impact due to noise, light flicker and positioning on steep slopes. Dunn said the board was particularly disturbed because the original proposal stated the turbines would not be sited on slopes exceeding 15 percent, yet the environmental study showed some were slated to be built on such slopes.

Resident Vince Johnson, who lives on Italy Hill Turnpike near a targeted turbine site, said he was worried about storm-water runoff from turbines — as well as noise and possible effect on spring-fed wells

Water runoff?  Slopes?  Noise?  Wells?  Hey – who wouldn’t want to have 20 story turbines booming away.  But they are very very very very green!

So should local cities be able to throw roadblocks in the way of energy independence and Algore worship?

Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered

Its because the blessed Algore (may someday he gain some intelligence) bought all those carbon credits from himself.
clipped from www.theregister.co.uk
Just a few weeks ago, predictions of Arctic ice collapse were buzzing all over the internet. Some scientists were predicting that the “North Pole may be ice-free for first time this summer”. Others predicted that the entire “polar ice cap would disappear this summer”.
The Arctic melt season is nearly done for this year. The sun is now very low above the horizon and will set for the winter at the North Pole in five weeks. And none of these dire predictions have come to pass. Yet there is, however, something odd going on with the ice data.
A comparison of these maps (derived from NSIDC data) below shows that Arctic ice extent was 30 per cent greater on August 11, 2008 than it was on the August 12, 2007. (2008 is a leap year, so the dates are offset by one.

Ice at the Arctic
ice has grown in nearly every direction since last summer – with a large increase in the area north of Siberia
Northwest Passage (west of Greenland) has seen a significant increase in ice

A Climate Change Model That Works

One that actually can reflect conditions – and its from NASA too eco-idiots:

Well, well. Congress learned something shattering today, which will have the Church of Al Gore/IPCC running in fear of their lost credibility. It has been scientifically demonstrated that 70% of the Global Warming in the last century (and cooling in the last decade) is due to the Pacific Ocean Oscillations, not CO2:

The gentlemen making this claim is the lead investigator one of NASA’s flagship Earth Observing Observatories (H/T Ice Cap).

I posted on some of these effects yesterday. What this means is no matter how much you change your CO2 footprint, how much you try to be CO2 green, no matter how much liberal governments tax you – you cannot save the planet from its natural cycles. Remember, the draconian actions being proposed by the Church of Al Gore/IPCC, which will run into the tens of trillions of dollars and cripple the world economies, is only meant to reduce today’s CO2 levels by a fraction.

Imagine that!  A model which explains things and you dono’t have to pay extortion to the Great and Wonderful Algore!

The Latest Dreck from Al “The Idiot” Gore

The Anti-Idotarian Rotweiller gives a good overview on the latest idiocy from the Goracle (beware – the Emperor uses strong, strong language):

To begin to fix all the problems, Gore said, “the answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels.”

“And to that end, I aim to wave my magic Gorebecile Wand and, by spreading fairy dust all over the nation, come up with replacements for carbon-based fuels overnight.”

Gore called on the country to produce all of its electricity from renewable and carbon-free sources in 10 years, a goal he compared to President Kennedy’s challenge for the country to put a man on the moon in the 1960s.

Modest as always, we see. But wait, we always thought that it was the Gorebecile who put a man on the Moon. Or was the Gorebecile actually the first man on the Moon? Nevermind. We’re pretty sure that he took the initiative in creating the science of rocket propulsion.

Gore chastised those who have proposed opening new areas for oil drilling as a solution to U.S. energy problems.

“It is only a truly dysfunctional system that would buy into the perverse logic that the short-term answer to high gasoline prices is drilling for more oil 10 years from now,” Gore said.

Alas, if only the Gorebecile had flunked out of a business school instead of failing Bible 101 in seminary, he would understand enough about this whole supply and demand thing to know that he’s a blithering buttskate. Also, we find it interesting that drilling now with an eye to increasing supply within 7 years (or shorter. You really have to stay up to date on these things, Gorebecile) is “dysfunctional” and “perverse”, while throwing everything we have out the window while hoping and praying fervently that a suitable replacement will automagically turn up within 10 years ISN’T.

Practicing what they preach – here’s how the Great and Powerful Gore arrived at this speech – along with all his supporters who are following his every word too:
