You can have your dorky Captain Kirk vs Captain Picard arguments. Canada’s own Cmdr Hadfield is the real thing… Cmdr Hadfield’s version of Bowie’s “Space Oddity” was made in part by Bowie’s former Canadian bandmate. (via @GinaPhillipsSNN) More here.

McGuinty’s “Green” Energy… It’s all about the money: A subsidiary of an American energy company has chain-sawed a bald eagle nest to make way for a wind turbine with the blessing of Ontario bureaucrats. [...] “The most obscene thing about this whole thing is that the only thing green about wind energy in Ontario is […]

Job candidate wants nothing to do with a so-called business news publication that resorts to “propaganda, rhetoric and schoolboy level insults”: …I cannot in good conscience work for an organisation such as Bloomberg, nor rely on its recommendation via the BAT for work elsewhere in the industry. I will – as I have usually done […]

You can choose the blue pill of science fiction, but you’d be missing out on the factual science provided by the red pill’s enlightenment: The film records ten years of effort by the small team in Copenhagen that, in the end, solved the mystery of how the Galaxy and the Sun interfere in our everyday […]

Canada’s number one extreme environmentalist is back (from scaring the kiddies at Christmas) to spew more doomsday predictions: (Note: For some reason, the embedded video is not showing here. Visit the site. Embedded video is back now, but I’ll leave the link in case.) More on this latest climate science fiction here. The “Climate Vulnerability […]

Beware the watermelon thought control indoctrinators… Read: Do they get little red arm bands? EPA Recruites Students for ‘Energy Patrols’ at Schools All hail the governments youth and student re-education corps. I wonder if they instruct them to take down names of offenders … yet. If not, they will, eventually. Or they’ll do it anyway. […]

But, yeah, go McGuinty’s Green Energy Flop! Homeowners close to wind turbines can expect to see much of their property values blown away, a provocative study by a London property appraiser has found. Sellers in the future could even find their properties are worth nothing, says the study by Ben Lansink of Lansink Appraisals and […]

I love the tinfoil hat graphic! What a borg mentality these watermelons have…

Kosacks Plunder Suzuki — but that’s okay ’cause he stole the idea too!

The highlight is that they think they have a bot’s chance in hell of being taken seriously: Given that the survey audience was mostly alarmist (see the blog list above), and the survey’s intent was clear to commenters on those sites (see their comments below), its possible the team has “discovered” that some alarmist readers […]

Thou shalt embrace the #AGW scientific consensus without question. I’m betting the 2nd commandment goes something like: Thou shalt attack those heathens who refuse to worship the Gaia climate idols, er models* and fear-monger about anti-science Christians. For instance, Globe and Mail columnist Lawrence Martin says Harper’s anti-Suzuki stance on climate change might be the […]

The history-challenged failed to mention that this “unprecedented” melt happens every 150 years or so. Plus a little more about that 97 percent “statistic”: I’m sure our readers don’t really need to have it pointed out that the melting event did not melt 97% of Greenland’s ice sheet, but rather occurred over 97% of the […]

LOL funny… Beyond Poetic Justice: Spain, the country that destroyed its economy–in considerable part–by lavishing billion$ on the Sunbeams and Birdshredder “Energy” sector (which racked up a $31 billion deficit), is preparing…wait for it…a Renewable Energy Tax. By one estimate, it would wipe out 76% of the country’s green energy production–awesome! Still laughing… Stupid economic […]

Delusions Down Under: The statement doesn’t sound scientific, however. For one thing, the language isn’t circumspect. It doesn’t talk about possible outcomes. It doesn’t say certain things may happen. Instead, it declares with supreme confidence that, by the end of the century, CO2 emissions at the current rate will warm sea surface temperatures by at […]

Bye-bye tax dollars; bye-bye yet more jobs as battery maker A123 Systems Inc on Friday told investors it has about five months of cash left to fund operations: The company, which received a $249 million grant from the Obama administration as part of a program to develop advanced lithium-ion batteries, said in documents filed with […]

From Vivian Krause of Rethink Campaigns on what got her started: A Complaint of Apparent Scientific Misconduct… How did the University of Alberta handle this formal complaint of apparent scientific misconduct? The University dismissed the complaint with no investigation of the information provided. When I appealed to the president of the University, I was told […]

Like all alarmist rhetoric… Yes, it certainly does sound made up. And we all know how much past Liberal governments cared about climate change action — *snort*. UPDATE: Dean asks, “Wouldn’t it be considered fraudulent to solicit money based on a falsehood?” Good point! I would think it is.

Aw, so cute isn’t it… Eco-alarmist sustainability propaganda: More here. I despise the anti-freedom humanity-haters for this corruption of children with their alarmist propaganda. The likes of Gore and Suzuki have a lot to answer for… Watermelons know the key to instituting their agenda is the indoctrination of children*. Humans as a disease! Diseased minds […]

A must read… I’ll highlight a few items below (emphasis mine). “The economic damage done to the once vibrant B.C. cement industry is another victim of the carbon tax. Since 2008, the industry has paid $20 million in carbon taxes while cement imports to the province have increased from 4 percent to an unprecedented 23 […]

First up: Observations from the obtuse… B.C.’s greenhouse gas emissions fell 4.5 per cent in the first four years of the carbon tax on fossil fuels, but most of that drop was probably the result of a world recession rather than the steadily increasing tax. [...] Lake said the global financial crisis of 2008-09 is […]

I revel in being called a “denier” because it means I’m not a member of this idiotic watermelon cult: We’ve known for sometime that there’s an underlying, sometimes overt display of hatred towards climate skeptics. However, it generally never made it into science publications. Unfortunately, the editors of the journal Nature Climate Change just made […]

Doomed panel still talking like a panel of doom with one last doomsday report: Members of a federal advisory panel, who recently learned their organization was on the chopping block, are sending Prime Minister Stephen Harper a “reality check” on the economic dangers of his global warming policies. h/t: C&W The good news is soon […]

Poor Soylent Green didn’t make it. Read: C’mon. How The Hell Can I Get Any EvilBigOil/BigCoal® Money If I Don’t Make The List? I would’ve included you, SG. You’re one son-of-a-bitch evil planet wrecker if I’ve ever seen one. Your girlie pics alone must be responsible for some major warming. As for the others on […]

About time they reduced their carbon footprint. (h/t: James) I’ll give you the shortened version: They’re POed that the government is having the nerve to simply enforce already existing accountability rules. If you want to know more about the foreign agenda behind the funding of a number of environmental groups in Canada, follow the in-depth […]
