The new prayer for the climate changers:
Full of hot air,
The media is with thee.
Blessed art thou among politicians,
and blessed is the fruit of your imagination – Climate Change.
Father of melting polar ice,
Give us our carbon offsets now,
and save us in the hour of our melting.
NIMBY, NIMBY, NIMBY – this example from New York of all wonderfully liberal places:
“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?
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 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:
