Why do the nations gather together? Why do their people devise useless plots? Kings take their stands. Rulers make plans together against the LORD and against his Messiah by saying, "Let's break apart their chains and shake off their ropes." The one enthroned in heaven laughs. The Lord makes fun of them. Then he speaks to them in his anger. In his burning anger he terrifies them by saying, "I have installed my own king on Zion, my holy mountain." I will announce the LORD'S decree. He said to me: "You are my Son. Today I have become your Father. Ask me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance and the ends of the earth as your own possession. You will break them with an iron scepter. You will smash them to pieces like pottery." Now, you kings, act wisely. Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, or he will become angry and you will die on your way because his anger will burst into flames. Blessed is everyone who takes refuge in him.  (Psalms 2:1-12)

What an absolute circus it has been. Rarely have I been so amused at such a bumbling display of absolute hypocrisy from our media creme de la creme so as to actually crack a smile at this whole ridiculous charade. Leaked e-mails (they were not hacked they were deliberately leaked by an insider with a guilty conscience) proving beyond a shadow of a doubt what many have insisted since its inception, that anthropogenic climate change is a complete and utter hoax and its players and promoters little more than despicably heartless, ideological hucksters. And what of our ever responsible journalists? Well they have headed for the hills of course, hoping the inconvenient truth they have been deliberately ignoring will somehow magically go away. It's business as usual folks at global government ground zero and the players, like little emperors with no clothes, look all the more foolish with each moment that passes, each one of them playing their well rehearsed part.

The media bias really has been quite atrocious when all is said and done. Pam and I sat jobber jawed at an airing of The 7.30 Report during the past week in which the nakedly unashamed climate change cajoling commentators interviewed a 16 year old female attendee of the Copenhagen Climate Change summit petitioning world leaders for 'action' on climate change. I said to Pam, What does a 16-year-old know about anything? No offence, but when does a child become so interested enough in the subject to study the atmospheric sciences to such a degree that they become a credible authority worth interviewing on national television? How many years separate the child from the academic? How lengthy is the evolution from Barbie and Biochemistry? Is this quest ones own or the aspirations of a 'learned, agenda-erd' other? Oh but my memory evades me, all one needs do is release that one hit wonderful, chart topping single and then viola, by virtue of such, one is now authorised to speak ex-cathedra on all matters pertaining to the human existence, not the least of which are the climate sciences. When asked how she would respond to 'climate sceptics', this 16 year old mast head for the climate pirate ship: Rainbow Warrior replied (in as many words), "even if climate change is not happening at least we are doing something good for the environment."

Pardon me?? 10 trillion punitive dollars later -  even if it's not happening? Global genocide for the want of generating electricity to survive and not being permitted to because of junk science and puerile politics - even if it's not happening? National sovereignties and blood bought freedoms jetisoned - even if it's not happening? Unbelievable! The troubling thing is that these people actually take themselves seriously!

And all the while news reports continue to flood in exposing the underhanded tactics of some Climate alarmists desperate to indoctrinate an upcoming generation with what will ultimately be the veneration of their earth goddess. Television programs depicting wasteful children as 'Climate Pigs', messages to children that people who don't look after the environment, including their parents, will die. Calls for kids to 'dob in' climate 'abusers' even if they happen to be mum and dad or brother and sister. Calls for climate 'sceptics' to be charged with 'crimes against humanity' and climate 'deniers' put in the same class as those who deny the Holocaust of World War II.

And now amazing, butt covering claims that Russia is behind the leaked e-mails. Talk about duck and weave! You mean that cold war thing isn't over and done with? Seasonal Siberian Scapegoats. Give me a break!

You know what? ... Blah, Blah, Blah. Vacuous verbiage. Professing themselves to be wise they have indeed become fools... every last one of them, and right before our very eyes!

Folks, when this can of worms becomes a sea of snakes, namely when this particular hoax is exposed for what it is, and the interested parties for who they are, there will be people who will need to face some justice. There will be people who will need to be sued. There will be people who will need to be jailed. There will be people who will need to be removed from public office. There will be people who will need to be deported - no politically motivated, bleeding heart excuses this time. There will be people whose assets, having been fraudulently acquired through profiteering in this great green hoax, will need to be seized. There will be people who will need to grow a spine and stand on one side of the chasm du jour or the other. Why? Because it is widening, much like the ever expanding void between scientific truth, and Al Gore's curious logic. These same people need to apologise for aiding and abetting the propaganda machine of this asinine, fear monger-fest masquerading as 'concern for the environment'. In short, there needs to be wholesale and global accountability apportioned to all players, pundits and profiteers without discrimination. To coin an old colloquialism: "Heads must roll". These people need to be exposed for what they are - treacherous, treasonous liars and heartless deceivers. And they need to be exposed and dealt with now, not left to crawl back into the woodwork when it all hits the fan like the Nazis did at the end of World War 2 only to reemerge as yet another 'worthy cause' and 'deserving leader' in our repetitive expectations. They will need to be seen as examples to all that Yahweh Almighty is not mocked, and that what a man sows, from that very seed shall he reap a harvest in kind. And then there will be those people who will just have to eat some humble pie for a change and learn to like it. This presumptuous propaganda posse, will need to admit they got it so wrong it doesn't even make sense, and that they knew it was wrong all along, apologise, retract their ridiculous statements and promise to be much more careful next time.

And then, after hell freezes over....

The following report from CBS shows how the true intellectuals of the world are standing up and voicing their opposition albeit in the dying minutes of the game. Emeritus Professors and accredited Scientists with actual experience in the field (now that's thinking outside of the box!) are adding their harmony to the song of protest being sung around the world, as the people wake-up to the fact that they have been conned.

Open Letter to UN Secretary-General
His Excellency Ban Ki Moon
Secretary-General, United Nations
New York, NY
United States of America
December 8, 2009

Dear Secretary-General,

Climate change science is in a period of 'negative discovery' - the more we learn about this exceptionally complex and rapidly evolving field the more we realize how little we know. Truly, the science is NOT settled.

Therefore, there is no sound reason to impose expensive and restrictive public policy decisions on the peoples of the Earth without first providing convincing evidence that human activities are causing dangerous climate change beyond that resulting from natural causes. Before any precipitate action is taken, we must have solid observational data demonstrating that recent changes in climate differ substantially from changes observed in the past and are well in excess of normal variations caused by solar cycles, ocean currents, changes in the Earth's orbital parameters and other natural phenomena.

We the undersigned, being qualified in climate-related scientific disciplines, challenge the UNFCCC and supporters of the United Nations Climate Change Conference to produce convincing OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE for their claims of dangerous human-caused global warming and other changes in climate. Projections of possible future scenarios from unproven computer models of climate are not acceptable substitutes for real world data obtained through unbiased and rigorous scientific investigation.

Specifically, we challenge supporters of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused climate change to demonstrate that:

1.        Variations in global climate in the last hundred years are significantly outside the natural range experienced in previous centuries;
2.        Humanity's emissions of carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse gases' (GHG) are having a dangerous impact on global climate;

3.        Computer-based models can meaningfully replicate the impact of all of the natural factors that may significantly influence climate;

4.        Sea levels are rising dangerously at a rate that has accelerated with increasing human GHG emissions, thereby threatening small islands and coastal communities;

5.        The incidence of malaria is increasing due to recent climate changes;

6.        Human society and natural ecosystems cannot adapt to foreseeable climate change as they have done in the past;

7.        Worldwide glacier retreat, and sea ice melting in Polar Regions , is unusual and related to increases in human GHG emissions;

8.        Polar bears and other Arctic and Antarctic wildlife are unable to adapt to anticipated local climate change effects, independent of the causes of those changes;

9.        Hurricanes, other tropical cyclones and associated extreme weather events are increasing in severity and frequency;

10.        Data recorded by ground-based stations are a reliable indicator of surface temperature trends.
It is not the responsibility of 'climate realist' scientists to prove that dangerous human-caused climate change is not happening. Rather, it is those who propose that it is, and promote the allocation of massive investments to solve the supposed 'problem', who have the obligation to convincingly demonstrate that recent climate change is not of mostly natural origin and, if we do nothing, catastrophic change will ensue. To date, this they have utterly failed to do so.

So it looks like the wheels are falling off the old billy cart, and with very little reason to believe there'll be any bailers in the foreseeable future, we will continue to add more names to the Green Wall of Shame - those who will go into history with at least some degree of infamy, ever remembered for not thinking a matter through and for considering their 15 minutes of fame more important than their everlasting integrity. These same individuals will be relentlessly pursued by those who never bought their... bovine byproduct in the first place simply to encourage them unto a restitution through contrition for the damage done to those they have so inhumanly led astray.

Just for a moment, I want you to seriously consider the kind of people we are dealing with here ok? No really, this is very important - please read the following carefully... Their hoax has been exposed for all the world to see. It has been demonstratively verified and there is no ambiguity in its consensus, and yet our intrepid politicians are acting as if they've not been caught out. 'Come along people, we have a treaty to sign', 'But it's all been proven a hoax.', 'Now come along people, we have a treaty to sign.'. 'But this is all based on inaccurate computer predictions loaded with faulty data - it's been proven to be wrong' - 'Come along people, we have a treaty to sign', 'Don't you get it? We know what you're up to.', 'Come along people, we have a treaty to sign.' Their relentless arrogance, and unswayable determination to have their way no matter how much money it costs or how many lives it sacrifices, will see this pack of vipers one day soon, acquire total dominion of everything, and will not change its spots in or after the process. May God have mercy on them, one and all. Millstones dropped in the deep with them and their kind attached sounds like a fitting reward for all their conniving, contriving and vacuous compunction.

Rantings of a conspiracy theorist? Yeah, they said something similar about John the locust munching baptiser did they not? Repent folks... the hour is at hand - Ummm... no kidding!

In His Everlasting Embrace,

Physicists Stick to Warming Claim Post-ClimateGate
Comments Posted by Declan McCullagh .

(CBS)The professional association for physicists is facing internal pressure from some of its most distinguished members, who say the burgeoning ClimateGate scandal means the group should rescind its 2007 statement declaring that global warming represents a dire international emergency.

When asked on Monday whether it will rethink the statement calling for immediate reductions in carbon dioxide emissions, the American Physical Society said it would not. APS spokeswoman Tawanda Johnson replied with a pre-ClimateGate announcement from November 10 reiterating support for the 2007 statement; neither APS president-elect Curtis Callan nor Johnson would answer other questions on the topic.

Pressure on this venerable society of physicists, which was founded in 1899 at Columbia University, is coming from members who are squarely in the scientific mainstream and are alarmed at the state of climate science revealed in the leaked e-mail messages and program files from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit. (See CBS News' prior coverage.)

Those files show that prominent scientists were so wedded to theories of man-made global warming that they ridiculed dissenters who asked for copies of their data, plotted how to keep researchers who reached different conclusions from publishing, and discussed how to conceal apparently buggy computer code from being disclosed under the Freedom of Information law. Internal investigations are now underway at East Anglia, Penn State, and the British government's weather forecasting unit.

One APS dissenting member is William Happer, a physicist who runs the Happer Lab at Princeton University. Another is Hal Lewis, a professor emeritus of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A third is Robert Austin, another Princeton physics professor and head of a biophysics research group.

They've been circulating a letter saying: "By now everyone has heard of what has come to be known as ClimateGate, which was and is an international scientific fraud, the worst any of us have seen... We have asked the APS management to put the 2007 statement on ice until the extent to which it is tainted can be determined, but that has not been done. We have also asked that the membership be consulted on this point, but that too has not been done."

Some of the same scientists had asked the APS, pre-ClimateGate, to revise its climate policy statement. To the applause of like-minded bloggers who dubbed the petition "a silly distraction," the APS shot down that idea on November 10.

In the aftermath of the embarrassing data leaks, however, Princeton's Happer says that about half of the APS members they've contacted now support the petition (which, after all, is only asking for an independent analysis of the science involved).

Of the signatories so far, Happer says, 77 are fellows of major scientific societies, 14 members of the National Academies, one is a Nobel laureate, and there is a large number of authors of major scientific books and recipients of prizes and awards for scientific research. He adds: "Some have accepted a career risk by signing the petition. The 230 odd signatories can hardly be dismissed as lightweights compared to those who spread the message of impending climate disaster."

This has become a common refrain: Hans von Storch, director of the Institute for Coastal Research, calls the climate change axis a "cartel." A colleague, Eduardo Zorita, went further and said the scientists implicated in the e-mails "should be barred" from future United Nations proceedings and warned that "the scientific debate has been in many instances hijacked to advance other agendas." One estimate from a free-market group says that 12 of the 26 scientists who wrote the relevant section of a U.N. global warming report are "up to their necks in ClimateGate."

Below are excerpts from e-mail messages that the scientists behind the petition to the APS sent me on Monday:

Princeton University's Robert Austin:

I view it as science fraud, pure and simple, and that we should completely distance ourselves from such unethical behavior by CRU, and that data files be opened to the public and examined in the full light of day. We as taxpayers pay for that work -- we are owed examination of the analysis.

Princeton University's William Happer:

The APS has not responded to our petition. We submitted the petition several weeks ago... Prof. Callan, the president elect of the APS, who works in the same building in Princeton University as Professor Austin and I, has been unable to find time to discuss the petition with us.

We have independently contacted as many members of the APS as we can to ask for their support of the petition. We are getting about as many supportive as negative responses, so I would judge that about half the membership of the APS agrees with us. Those who oppose us usually have little or nothing to say about the science and plenty of things to say about what evil people we are. Those who agree with us are troubled by the lack of scientific support for the current APS statement and the highly political nature of it.

Hal Lewis of the University of California, Santa Barbara:

I think it behooves us to be careful about how we state the science. I know of nobody who denies that the Earth has been warming for thousands of years without our help (and specifically since the Little Ice Age a few hundred years ago), and is most likely to continue to do so in its own sweet time. The important question is how much warming does the future hold, is it good or bad, and if bad is it too much for normal adaptation to handle. The real answer to the first is that no one knows, the real answer to the second is more likely good than bad (people and plants die from cold, not warmth), and the answer to the third is almost certainly not. And nobody doubts that CO2 in the atmosphere has been increasing for the better part of a century, but the disobedient temperature seems not to care very much. And nobody denies that CO2 is a greenhouse gas, along with other gases like water vapor, but despite the claims of those who are profiting by this craze, no one knows whether the temperature affects the CO2 or vice versa. The weight of the evidence is the former.

So the tragedy is that the serious questions are quantitative, and it's easy to fool people with slogans. If you say that the Earth is warming you are telling the truth, but not the whole truth, and if you say it is due to the burning of fossil fuels you are on thin ice. If you say that the Earth is warming and therefore catastrophe lies ahead, you are pulling an ordinary bait and switch scam. If you are a demagogue, of course, these distinctions don't bother you -- you have little interest in that quaint concept called truth.

So it isn't simple, and the catastrophe mongers are playing a very lucrative game.
