And I thought all hope was lost...

I think now we're finally turning the corner as a civilization.

I'm sure they all feel reeeeeal good about it now.
Phew...now we can go back to normal.

Points to Ponder


One of the coolest little videos I've seen.

I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it.

"Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Friggin' nice!
Wait...is this just because I'm Italian??

The Reeeeally Big Show

Now appearing live(!) for one day only, in front of your congress... Algore, Inc. dba Global Warming!
He warns and warns us to be aware of our environment, blah, blah, blah....so why doesn't he want to take the oath like he wants all of us to?
What an algore. The senator just nails him.

"First, you have claimed that there is a “strong, new emerging consensus” linking global warming to an increase in hurricane intensity and duration. Yet last year, the World Meteorological Organization very clearly rejected this assertion, and other scientists agree.
Secondly, you said that East Antarctica might melt and this could raise sea levels by 20 feet, so we’re all going to die. However, according to many scientists, Antarctica is gaining ice mass, not losing it. In a 2005 study published in Science a team of researchers led by Dr. Curt Davis found an overall gain in ice mass in Antarctica over a ten year period.
And the public is catching on. Even the New York Times last week published an article about scientists, many of them your supporters, who say you have overstated your case on global warming — in fact, they warn that you may be hurting the so-called cause with your "alarmism."
Given that, it is no wonder you have turned down the chance to debate the President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus. And now I understand a debate challenge has been issued by Lord Monckton of Benchley.
Now there is a reason for this.
When the debate is balanced, skeptics win, alarmists lose. In New York last week, for instance, a major debate took place to examine whether global warming is a crisis. Prior to the debate, the hand-wringers, the alarmists, in the audience outnumbered those who didn’t think it was a crisis 2 to 1. After the debate, the alarmists were outnumbered – a major turnaround in beliefs in a single night

The rest.

I mean read the damn oath! What kind of tool preaching the global warming religion - and making a movie telling you how to live - refuses to take the oath on a national stage, with everyone watching his lead?
Anyone? Bueller?
The hypocritical algore kind, that's who.


I get tired of the "we can do no wrong" and "do as we say not as we do" BS spewed by our state government. We are quickly becoming laughing stock across the country.
When I commented to my friends (and their acquaintances) in Florida recently that Wisconsin does not require any ID to vote, all their jaws dropped. Left and right.

Now what?

So ...think this will ever become a consensus or be dismissed as "junk science?"

This is just hilarious.
How long does this go on before the consensus BS is finally laid to rest for good so a real debate can be had and scientists aren't getting a scarlet letter for disagreeing that Algore?


My, how the mighty have fallen:




Ok, I'm a guy...is "rehab" another word for "collagen lip implant retreat" or what? Bleeech!!...

God Bless America.

Home of the free, brave and the lawsuit.
Always follow the money.

IMHO these jackasses staged the whole thing and now they also want to shake down the people they scared so as to not look like they are only going after the big, bad airline.

Tree huggers take note

Good thing they were in on the Kyoto accords, eh?
Oh, wait...

Think the MSM that jumped down the thoats of the US will even bother to report this?
I'm thinking it will evade Matt Lower, Katie and whoever is at ABC these days, et. al.

Hidden costs noone likes to talk about.

You know, my family and friends have been telling me for quite a while that I should apply for disability benefits through the SS. My answer was always, "No way. I'd be a hippocrite if I did that. That is NOT what SS is there for!"
Well, after 7+ years of fighting the MS, I finally had enough of fighting it and I applied and was immidiately granted the benefits.
When I went to the local office, I was a tad bit miffed that all the benefit information was extensively written in Spanish as well as English. I sighed heavily and wondered how much money was wasted nationally in all the offices across the country with all the copies of each. Needles to say, this was just a bit depressing to me.
Then toaday, I was on the government SS website when I came across this little bit of info.
What can I say, but...wow.
Not just Spanish, but an abundance of other languages - in case you find English just too damn difficult or inconvenient to learn. What a joke.
Your tax dollars hard(ly) at work.
Even if its not tax dollars, how much does it cost private business to be "pc" where there are explanations of everything in 1-8 languages? No cost? Really? Who do you think pays for it?

Its easier to spend money than get people to learn the language of the land, I guess.
Makes me sick...er.

The professionals have spoken.

Well here's a fine "how-do-you-do."

This must have been one hell of a concesus if they are taking it "off the table" after all these years, huh?

Gore's consensus.

Here is the text of Newsweek’s 1975 story on the trend toward global cooling. It may look foolish today, but in fact world temperatures had been falling since about 1940. It was around 1979 that they reversed direction and resumed the general rise that had begun in the 1880s, bringing us today back to around 1940 levels.
I invite you to embrace the phase:
"The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it."

Politics? What politics?
Money? What money?


The Cooling World
Newsweek, April 28, 1975

There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now. The regions destined to feel its impact are the great wheat-producing lands of Canada and the U.S.S.R. in the North, along with a number of marginally self-sufficient tropical areas – parts of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indochina and Indonesia – where the growing season is dependent upon the rains brought by the monsoon.

The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. In England, farmers have seen their growing season decline by about two weeks since 1950, with a resultant overall loss in grain production estimated at up to 100,000 tons annually. During the same time, the average temperature around the equator has risen by a fraction of a degree – a fraction that in some areas can mean drought and desolation. Last April, in the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded, 148 twisters killed more than 300 people and caused half a billion dollars’ worth of damage in 13 U.S. states.

To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather. The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. If the climatic change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic. “A major climatic change would force economic and social adjustments on a worldwide scale,” warns a recent report by the National Academy of Sciences, “because the global patterns of food production and population that have evolved are implicitly dependent on the climate of the present century.”

A survey completed last year by Dr. Murray Mitchell of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reveals a drop of half a degree in average ground temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere between 1945 and 1968. According to George Kukla of Columbia University, satellite photos indicated a sudden, large increase in Northern Hemisphere snow cover in the winter of 1971-72. And a study released last month by two NOAA scientists notes that the amount of sunshine reaching the ground in the continental U.S. diminished by 1.3% between 1964 and 1972.

To the layman, the relatively small changes in temperature and sunshine can be highly misleading. Reid Bryson of the University of Wisconsin points out that the Earth’s average temperature during the great Ice Ages was only about seven degrees lower than during its warmest eras – and that the present decline has taken the planet about a sixth of the way toward the Ice Age average. Others regard the cooling as a reversion to the “little ice age” conditions that brought bitter winters to much of Europe and northern America between 1600 and 1900 – years when the Thames used to freeze so solidly that Londoners roasted oxen on the ice and when iceboats sailed the Hudson River almost as far south as New York City.

Just what causes the onset of major and minor ice ages remains a mystery. “Our knowledge of the mechanisms of climatic change is at least as fragmentary as our data,” concedes the National Academy of Sciences report. “Not only are the basic scientific questions largely unanswered, but in many cases we do not yet know enough to pose the key questions.”

Meteorologists think that they can forecast the short-term results of the return to the norm of the last century. They begin by noting the slight drop in overall temperature that produces large numbers of pressure centers in the upper atmosphere. These break up the smooth flow of westerly winds over temperate areas. The stagnant air produced in this way causes an increase in extremes of local weather such as droughts, floods, extended dry spells, long freezes, delayed monsoons and even local temperature increases – all of which have a direct impact on food supplies.

“The world’s food-producing system,” warns Dr. James D. McQuigg of NOAA’s Center for Climatic and Environmental Assessment, “is much more sensitive to the weather variable than it was even five years ago.” Furthermore, the growth of world population and creation of new national boundaries make it impossible for starving peoples to migrate from their devastated fields, as they did during past famines.

Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies. The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.

NEW GAME! Time to play: "Al vs....."

Reality would just destroy Al, so we'll go easy on him to start and give him this chump.
He's just a nobody with alot less climatological experience than Alfonse.

Take one part mony-grubber, one part scare-monger and one part "I feel yohre pain" wanna-be, and you get one complete Algore.


Oh, goodie...I guess now the book is closed on the story.

Whoop-de-freakin' do.
So what?
Will the soldiers come back? Will money be paid to the families?
This reeks of feel-good.

Eyes Wide Shut

Well, I guess the media, et.al. have taken a break from the collective fellatio they have bestowed Al Gore. Even the most conservative of publications has had enough.
Go figure: the unquestionable consensus is starting to be nothing but a house of cards built on "feel-good" policies and exaggerated predictions that do nothing but take our eyes off the real issue. Great job, Al.
You suck.

Gore has done nothing but waste everyone's time. The issue - for America - is to find alternative energy sources. Not on what the Kyoto accords or what the world thinks we need to do based on a "global" consensus. The world will move towards conservation and a greater awareness of our environment - regardless. With or without Al's help. Gore, as a complete hypocrite, wants us to decrease our "carbon footprint." He claims he does that by buying offsets...from a company he helped found. These "offsets" of his are nothing but investments into a company that pushes the green, fear-mongering machine that he helped create. The more fear he can put into you folks, the more money he makes.
What a joke.
Keep pushing, extreme left. Even the "regular" left has just about had it with you. When the pendulum swings back and people realize that it was founded mostly on fear-mongering rather than science and pragmatic solutions, you'll drown in your red tide.

This kinda stuff is..

...what made me decide to use this name. Have you heard the latest?
NOW the problem is going to through the nannies of this world into a conniption fit (or at least a tizzy) because cars are just too darn safe!! Damn those car guys!

While I may agree that some people live entirely too long due to safer cars, can we try or at least appear to try to spend research money on research other than this crap?

So my friend says....

"Hey, still_unreal, why don't you come spend week down here(His family is in Fla.) with us?"
So I say, "Hey, I can't really afford it."
He says, "No worries, I'll pay for the flight and you can stay at my house."

His back yard:


Holy crap, what a guy. Pfft.....I'm getting on a plane at noon today. See you all in a week. :-D

Proof of martian life!

Someone's gotta be doing it, right Al?
Gore is a nitwit.

See above.

Two words: Please Sink

And stay sunk, James.

Eh, he's just a priest. What does he know? They're all liars.
