The Merrill Lynch Marxist

Here’s an obituary from the Democratic Communist People’s Republic Pravda:

Third-party political activist Peter Camejo, a perennial candidate for state and national office who helped pioneer the financial market niche of socially responsible investments, died Saturday. He was 68.

He helped found the California Green Party in 1991 and ran three times for governor of California. He also ran as independent Ralph Nader’s vice presidential running mate in the 2004 presidential election in which President Bush won a second term. In 1976 he ran for president as the Socialist Workers Party candidate.

Mr. Camejo described himself as a watermelon – red on the inside, green on the outside.

OK – so here’s somebody who was admittedly a Communist/Socialist – who actually RAN as the Socialist Workers Party candidate for President in 1976.  Now who was running from the Democrat side in 1976? Here’s a little tidbit from the current Socialist Workers Party obit:

Peter used the campaign to fight for the idea that the great historical stumbling block to the building of any genuine revolutionary alternative organization was the misplaced hope that the Democratic Party could be taken over by the left and used as a vehicle to advance toward socialism.

Surprisingly, even among socialists in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s, this idea was in the minority, as the Communist Party, many Maoist groups and the forerunners of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)–Sen. Bernie Sanders being their most prominent member–backed Democrat Jimmy Carter for president.

So this person who believed that the Democrats were too “reactionary” to implement a true revolution in the United States then does what?  Well, first he decides to get a job with Merrill Lynch:

Matt Gonzalez, a former San Francisco supervisor who is running for vice president with Nader as an independent, said that Mr. Camejo once told him that when he interviewed for his job at Merrill Lynch, “the only thing that was true on my resume was my name and phone number.”

And he ended up his life as a capitalist fund manager – but it was GREEN!

Mr. Camejo earned his living as a financier and helped start an investment firm, Progressive Management Asset Inc. in Oakland. Clients can arrange their portfolios so that their investments, for example, are not linked to animal testing, weapons or sweatshop labor.

So we say adieu to someone who provably spent his life working for the overthrow of America and Democracy.  And please note – founder of the California Green Party.  A self-described Watermelon.  Thereby giving us further information about why opposing the EcoFreaks is also a good idea.

Someone who’s whole life was given over to everything I personally oppose.  And will continue to work in opposition.

And this self-described environmentalist fraud and communist is lauded in the pages of a “major” newspaper?  Sort of tells one where their sensibilities lie too.

Democrats To Commuters – Ride a Bike for 20 Bucks

yes – here’s the solution to our energy problems. Giving 20 dollar per month per employee tax deductions to businesses.

Of course, they are frantically working to make sure that we can’t drill for oil precisely where we KNOW it is – because that might actually make sense apparently.

But your legs might be worth a double sawbuck to your employers. Not to you of course – the tax benefit will go to your employer.

Just one other question – are we now going to have bike tax police to monitor the tax returns of business who claim this deduction to verify that the employees are truly humping themselves into the office? When will the first bike tax deduction scofflaw be hauled before the authorities? Lots of employment benefits here.

Section 827 of the bill defines the “Transportation Fringe Benefit to Bicycle Commuters.”
It says: “The term ‘qualified bicycle commuting reimbursement’ means, with respect to any calendar year, any employer reimbursement during the 15-month period beginning with the first day of such calendar year for reasonable expenses incurred by the employee during such calendar year for the purchase of a bicycle and bicycle improvements, repair and storage, if such bicycle is regularly used for travel between the employee’s residence and place of employment.”
Bottom line: Employers could count as a deductible business expense a tax-free $20 monthly reimbursement to workers who bike to work.

Islamic Group Urges Forest Fire Jihad

These guys had better watch out. This might get the ecoNazis angry at them for putting fire to Mother Earth. But then again the crazies hate people so maybe if it kills all the people they would be happy

clipped from www.theage.com.au
AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for “forest jihad” by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.
US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to “start forest fires”, claiming “scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels’ forests when they do the same to our lands”.
The website, posted by a group called the Al-Ikhlas Islamic Network, argues in Arabic that lighting fires is an effective form of terrorism justified in Islamic law under the “eye for an eye” doctrine.
The posting — which instructs jihadis to remember “forest jihad” in summer months — says fires cause economic damage and pollution, tie up security agencies and can take months to extinguish so that “this terror will haunt them for an extended period of time”.

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:

Hello Global Cooling

Great interview with Dennis Avery over at RWN:

…The very mild warming that the earth experienced over the last century: does that have more to do with mankind’s activities or the sun?

It seems like it must be the sun. The reason we say that is because 70% of the warming we’ve had since 1850, when the Little Ice Age ended — 70% of that warming came before 1940. 85% of the human emitted greenhouse gasses came after 1940. In fact, the net warming of the earth since 1940 is a miniscule 2/10 of 1 degree celsius….

Another question related to your last book: if you listen to global warming alarmists, they’ll tell you that the earth is warmer than it ever has been during mankind’s history. Is that true?

No. Absolutely untrue. The…warming before our last ice age was much warmer than anything we’ve had since. We had a warming that peaked 9000 years ago, another warming that peaked 5000 years ago. Both were warmer than today. Probably the Roman warming and the medieval warming were both warmer than today — and we’ve had 8 warmings of the earth since the last Ice Age.

The whole thing is interesting – the coming outlook for global temperature?

You’ve recently said you believe we’re about to experience mild global cooling. Can you tell us about that?

We are experiencing now, mild global cooling. We had a peak temperature in 1998, at the end of a hot El Nino and the climate model said this is just the beginning, it’s going to get much hotter. But, it didn’t. For 10 years, the temperature held stable.

During this time, from 2000 onward, the sunspots were predicting cooling. Let me point out to your readers that sunspots have had a strong history of predicting our temperature changes 10 years from now. A 10 year lag in predicting how solar activity will warm or cool the ocean. But, from 2000 on, they were predicting cooling.

2007, we got it. 2007 was significantly cooler and that was the first major downturn in the temperature in 30 years. That cooling has persisted — at this point, in temperature, about back where we were in the year 1900.

And this kind of information just completely unhinges the section of the population that has decided that they have finally gotten the tool they can use to make Western Civilization destroy itself.  The flecks of spittle that I have seen sprayed around on this blog are nothing compared to the vitriol poured out by the true believers on those who actually stand athwart their ideas and stay “STOP”.

But remember this too:

Another thing I have noticed is that even the global warming alarmists were right: the solutions that they’re suggesting don’t come close to fixing the problems. Kyoto, these cap and trade schemes, they are really expensive and actually do very little to reduce greenhouse gasses. Any thoughts on that?

They’re really talking about going back to the Great Depression. Nobody has a car, nobody could afford the fuel if they had a car. They’re talking about living a hundred yards from the factory, except there isn’t going to be a factory because there is not going to be any coal burning to power it. No nuclear power, no drilling for oil, no hope.

I just want to remind you that there are millions of people in the Third World, women and children, heating and cooking with cow manure, firewood that they gather off the mountainside. The air pollution in some of those areas is equal to a 2 pack a day cigarette habit. …If there’s no kerosene, no propane, no nuclear electricity, are we all going to be in that situation?

Latest Climate Idiocy – Bread To Be Less High

Just how many of these little tidbits of idiocy have you seen lately?

German researchers have shown that high CO2 levels in the atmosphere lead to wheat crops throughout Europe with less gluten, the protein in flour that forms the gooey matrix of dough.

By 2050, the researchers say, the expected CO2 levels in the atmosphere may lead to dough that rises nearly 20% less than it does now. The researchers, from the Johann Heinrich von Thunen Institute in Braunschweig , say that CO2 disrupts nitrogen uptake by the plants, and this causes the protein deficiency.

And the whole thing is speculation based on speculation about possible levels of carbon dioxide.  Of course the article itself gives the answer if this should happen.  More fertilizer, GM crops that increase nitrogen uptake – the solutions are there.  However, that’s buried at the bottom.  The big news is that George W Bush and SUVs will make your bread worse – unless you start paying more taxes.
