Charlie Munger (Warren Buffet’s #2) on Al Gore: “not very smart”, “an idiot”, “obsessed with global warming”. Despite that, he was making hundreds of millions of dollars annually by investing in companies that (in Gore’s mind) were not emitting CO2.

From the today’s 9th Circuit Appeals Court decision: “We conclude that the President, in issuing the Executive Order, exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress.”
President’s authority is defined in the Constitution. It is not delegated by Congress.
“In suspending the entry of more than 180 million nationals from six countries, suspending the entry of all refugees, and reducing the cap on the admission of refugees from 110,000 to 50,000 for the 2017 fiscal year, the President did not meet the essential precondition to exercising his delegated authority …”
President exercises authority he has under Constitution. And does the Court really want entry of 180 million nationals from Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen?
Executive Order 13780 is a softened version of Executive Order 13769, which had been illegally stricken down by the same Court.
2017-06-26 Update: the Supreme Court unanimously confirms the Travel Ban.

THE TREASONOUS SECESSION OF CLIMATE CONFEDERACY STATES . Prosecute Governor Brown for treason – according to FrontPageMag.
Some things don’t change. Buckley Jr., William. Up From Liberalism (1959):
“A second marked characteristic of the Liberal in debate with the conservative is the tacit premise that debate is ridiculous because there is nothing whatever to debate about . Arguments based on fact are especially to be avoided. Many people shrink from arguments over facts because facts are tedious , because they require a formal familiarity with the subject under discussion , and because they can be ideologically dislocative . Many Liberals accept their opinions , ideas , and evaluations as others accept revealed truths , and the facts are presumed to conform to the doctrines , as any dutiful fact will ; so why discuss the fact?” (Kindle Locations 522-527).
I think that anybody who attempted to engage a Liberal in a climate debate would wholeheartedly endorse this statement. Continue reading William Buckley on Liberals’ Facts Avoidance Habit
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a plant food.
Intentionally misleading. Water is human drink, but people still die in floods.
You drown when concentration of water around you is 100%. Atmospheric concentration of CO2 is less than 0.05%. Everything becomes harmful when there is too much of it, but the current and foreseeable concentrations of CO2 are beneficial, not harmful. Continue reading Reddit Debate about Brief SOS
Ezra Klein is Editor-in-Chief of Vox, founder of JournoList, contributor to WaPo, Bloomberg News, and MSNBC, and an all-around liberal icon. A few years ago he said and wrote that the Constitution was written 100 years ago. This level of ignorance is expected from modern libs. What is surprising is that Mr. Klein has graduated from the University of California with a major in Political Science! If the lib icons have no idea about the subjects they supposedly studied, is it any surprise that they know nothing about physics, biology, and engineering?

The main point of the essay Renounce Climate Alarmism! published in WUWT is that the Trump Administration should renounce climate alarmism entirely, rather than fighting each regulation, executive order, and other visible consequences of it.
In September 2015, Amazon.com, controlled by Jeff Bezos, added to its Amazon Prime package free subscription(*) to the The Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos (1). Thus, The Washington Post officially became an integral part of Amazon. This kind of arrangement between a national newspaper and a monopoly in multiple retail segments is unprecedented.
The Washington Post is one of the most rabid fakestream media outlets. Amazon is one of The Dirty 129, having served as a “witness” in a lawsuit, filed by the corrupt Washington State Attorney General Ferguson against the Executive Order No. 13769. Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.
Even before the elections, Donald Trump hinted that Amazon was a monopoly, and later The Washington Post assigned a special reporter’s team to dig dirt on him.

Following the popular refutation of the false analogy between the medical doctors and “climate science communicators”, this post addresses another favorite subject of the climate alarmists.
The conflict of interest. Like it or not, real experts do typically have conflicts of interest, or at least an appearance of one. For example, medical doctors diagnose illness, recommend treatment, and perform the recommended treatment. This creates a real and strong conflict of interest. As patients, many of us are aware of that and address it by one or more of the following: trust the doctor’s integrity, rely on the doctor’s accountability, or seek a second opinion. Continue reading Thoughts on Handling Conflicts of Interest
Hiring a lukewarmer Bret Stephens by The NY Times to cover the climate debate is too little, too late. But he referred to an article by Andrew Revkin who was a regular NYT climate alarmist in a little known. In this article My Climate Change, published in a small website issues.org more than a year ago, Revkin admitted to the alarmism, organized pressure, and more.
The main quotes:
“I saw a widening gap between what scientists had been learning about global warming and what advocates were claiming as they pushed ever harder to pass climate legislation or strengthen the faltering 1992 climate change treaty.”
“In 2006, I was part of a team of reporters at The Times that undertook a multi-year series called “The Energy Challenge” (nytimes.com/energychallenge), examining what it would take to deeply cut reliance on coal, oil, and gas, and move to climate-friendly technologies. The deeper we dug, the more we ran into enormous disconnects between the data and the claims. It was very clear that any transition to clean energy would be neither simple nor quick—and it wasn’t only for lack of political will.”
In the article, Revkin did not apologize and did not stop blaming the “fossil fuels”, but revealed more about corruption of journalism. Continue reading Andrew Revkin of NYT Admitted Alarmism

“In a radio interview I heard some years ago a BBC employee recalls his first day of work at the media establishment. An experienced colleague-mentor led him upstairs and out onto the roof. The two of them then stood together on the edge of the roof and urinated down on the people many floors below at ground level. (They were both male BTW.) This, the mentor explained was an important rite of passage impressing on a new employee the correct BBC attitude to hold towards the general public.” Continue reading BBC Pisses on the Public, Kisses up to Warmists

It’s no secret that formerly respectable and mainstream media outlets became fake news purveyors. Whatever it is that drove journalists to lie and manipulate, the evidence is there to prove their intent to deceive.
Much like television commercials and print advertisements, news stories are written to sell the reader something. Many times, what the news outlets are selling is politically motivated. On almost any given topic they choose to cover, they’ve been seen to cherry pick quotes that are in line with their interests and agendas, to omit relevant information that may harm their stand on something, and to use language that falsely imputes guilt on Republicans and conservatives.
The list below includes several examples of stealthy and manipulative alterations of already published news articles by the Washington Post and CNN. Continue reading More Media Caught Stealthily Altering Published Articles
The local investigation into the shooting continues, according to Dr. Roy Spencer.
Notably, the “March For Science” organizers removed evidence of “financial support” to their satellites from their website on the day of the March or immediately after it. This screenshot was taken on April 25:
The promise of “financial and legal resources” was already removed from the site on that day, and remained only in the Google snapshot.
In September 2016, WaPo published an article with the title: “Scientists published climate research under fake names. Then they were caught.” The subject of the article was one of the lesser known cases of suppression of climate dissent in formerly respectable peer reviewed journals, suppression supported by a formerly respectable media. That case clearly shows impossibility for dissenters from climate alarmism orthodoxy to publish in scientific journals.
The Washington Post’s reaction is an expression of its contempt for free speech, which includes the use of pseudonyms. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote The Federalist Papers under the pseudonym (or the “fake name” according to WaPo) Publius. In The Federalist Papers they advocated ratification of the Constitution, seemingly another object of the WaPo contempt.
The media blackout of what looks like an act of climate terrorism, continues.
Following the ridiculous “March for Science,” at which third-rate performers and copywriters pretended to be scientists, unidentified shooters open fire at the office of Dr. John Christy. Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer (who both work in the same building) are two of the prominent scientists who developed measurement methodology and have been maintaining the only truly global temperatures record — the satellite temperatures dataset.
Dr. Roy Spencer commented after the shooting:
“When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass.”
Ignored by the FSM, this news was reported by Breitbart, Daily Caller, Washington Times, and WUWT.
Seven shots were fired at the office of Dr. John Christy in the University of Alabama after the “March for Science.”
Dr. Roy Spencer, another climate realist, working in the same building, writes:
“Given that this was Earth Day weekend, with a March for Science passing right past our building on Saturday afternoon, I think this is more than coincidence.”
“Local news reports that UAH police have classified this as a ‘random shooting’. So, the seven Belgian 5.7 millimeter bullets which hit windows and bricks around John Christy’s office from 70 yards away were apparently deemed to be ‘random’ occurrence.”
Belgian 5.7 millimeter cartridges can be only Continue reading Offices of Real Scientists were Shot at after the March of Fake Ones
A new letter (1) from putative scientists calling for persecution of climate dissenters is posted (2) by the Union of Concerned Scientists, and is addressed to the NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The letter is titled “Pursue ExxonMobil Investigation to the Fullest Extent of the Law,” but the word “investigation” in it stands for “punishment“, as seen from the following quote:
“We encourage you to pursue your investigation to the fullest extent of the law in order to uncover any past wrongdoing and deter future misconduct.“
The morons who organized the “March for Science” listed the ‘United States’ and ‘USA’ as two different countries on their website:
They also put the United States at the end of the list, but we are used to that. Of course, Bill Nye the Clown will participate, although he won’t be leading the march. Expect fawning coverage by the fakestream media.
Update (2017-04-21 7am): they removed USA and added Vietnam below the United States in the list of countries. Still morons. I especially recommend to see the list of their shameless partners.
Update (Apr 19, 2017): The NY Times switched from the “denier” to the “denialist“. newsdiffs.org shows six post-publication revisions in this single article, and highlights the changes.
Update (an hour after the first publication): NY Times keeps tinkering with the terminology and the article headline. Now it is “climate change denialist” (8 Dec 2016 20:50:53 EST) Continue reading NY Times modifies the phrase “Climate Change Denier”
Listed below are 15 lies in this NYT article . This is after the article was corrected on March 4, 2017, two days after it was originally published.
The article’s title is: “Top Trump Advisers Are Split on Paris Agreement on Climate Change”
Lie #1. Trump advisors are not split on the Paris agreement. The U.S. is not a part of the Paris agreement, because this agreement has not been ratified by the Senate. All parties of the Paris agreement knew that Obama’s signature did not bind the U.S. Whether the Trump administration repudiates or just ignores that agreement is hairsplitting. Besides, having different opinions is normal. Only Obama’s administration was a single-opinion government. Next: Continue reading How many Lies can one New York Times Article Contain?

A new and disturbing connection between lawless MedSocCon and criminal EPA human tests is uncovered. #1 on the list of members of the MedSocCon Steering Committee is David Blaine Peden, Director of the Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma, and Lung Biology at the University of North Carolina. The UNC facility played a central role in the EPA’s illegal experiments on human subjects. Mr. Peden took part, and may have even supervised, some of these experiments. In particular, he participated in the CAPTAIN study, which was described as follows:
“EPA’s ongoing CAPTAIN study imposes a risk of immediate death from an acute exposure to PM2.5” (The American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center v. United States Environmental Protection Agency, and Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator. VERIFIED COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF , September 2012)
Peden’s name also appeared eleven times in the unrelated legal memorandum by E&E Legal (May 2015), as: “David Peden has received $2.5 million in grants from the EPA, NIH and NSF,” and, “He is the PI or Project Leader of EPA, NIH and NSF grants totaling $2.5 million in direct costs focused on the effect of controlled exposures of pollutants to normal and susceptible populations”
The Environmental Defense Fund indirectly acknowledged that the experiments were not intended for any health or environmental benefits but for establishing crippling regulations on U.S. fossil fuel energy Continue reading Perpetrator of EPA Human Experiments Steers MedSocCon

Harvard alumni know witch hunts! I’m not talking about Al Gore and Barack Obama here. Not even Maura Healey, the Massachusetts Attorney General. In 1692, exactly 300 years before the Clinton-Gore team won the presidential election, more than a hundred men, women, and girls were tried and convicted of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. Around 20 of them were executed. The majority of the trial judges were Harvard College alumni. Continue reading Next on the Wall of Shame: Harvard University
MedSocCon was funded and launched by many of the same climate alarmism groups that were linked to the EPA in 2004-2012, when it was conducting outrageous experiments on human subjects. Those EPA human tests (see epahumantesting.com) included feeding diesel engine exhaust voided of carbon monoxide into the lungs of “volunteers,” many of whom were old and/or suffered from asthma or heart diseases – the same population groups that are being targeted by MedSocCon now. Worse than the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments, those EPA tests were conducted with no medical or health care purpose or justification.

Correction to my essay in WUWT, Is Climate Alarmism Governance at War with the USA?: the likely time when hostile activities of the governing body of climate alarmism hypothetically rose to the level of war is 2011-2013, about a year and a half later than written in the article. Thanks to Hilary Ostrov for reminding me of the relevant facts.
This is a summary of When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff, focusing on connections and parallels between the short lived “ban alarmism” and climate alarmism. From January 28 through February 8, a number of Silicon Valley and Washington state corporate executives participated in an attempt to topple President Trump, orchestrated by the Left after President Trump signed the original order, Executive Order No. 13769 Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States on January 27. WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson, one of the Attorneys General United for Clean Power, filed a stinky lawsuit against President Trump and succeeded to halt implementation of the Executive order. 129 corporations, who hold monopolies in Internet search, “social media,” TV and movie streaming, as well as other markets for speech and press, filed an Amici Brief supporting the rogue Attorney General against the President. Their reaction to the Executive order was so out of proportion that an analogy with climate alarmism immediately sprung to mind. Here, I do not recite the original Executive order because I expect that readers did not trust to the Fake Stream Media reporting about it.
Some of the social dynamics behind this overreaction are described in the essay When Silicon Valley Went Off the Cliff. This new low looks like a development of climate alarmism, compressed in time from 30 years to 10 days and happening on the scale of corporations instead of nations. Like a small scale experiment with societal instability, one might say. Continue reading Who leans left, falls left. The Dirty 129

Website medsocietiesforclimatehealth.org, owned by a previously unknown group called the Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health (“MedSocCon”), published a number of irresponsible and misinforming posters, statements, “reports,” and other materials. These materials teach doctors that certain illnesses are caused or aggravated by “climate change” and/or “global warming,” which are, according to the same materials, caused by combustion of fossil fuels. Posters and talking points for communication with patients tell the patients to “vote for elected leaders that will act to cut climate pollution.” These materials also instruct doctors to give wrong advice to their patients, both adults and children. For example, a poster for children speaks directly to kids (over the heads of their parents) and tells them to bike to school. Dangers and high fatality rates of biking compared with driving are ignored. A “Heart Health” poster advises heart patients to replace their car trips with biking and walking.

The so-called “climate science” is based on the output of extremely complex computer climate models that cannot be understood by humans. Even worse, these models are incorrect because they contradict well-known principles of mathematics and the information theory. Other important points:
- Computers are built around silicon chips.
- Silicon (in the form of silicon oxides) is the main component of ordinary stones and rocks.
- Silicon chip output is interpreted by so-called “climate scientists” as the prophecy of future climate changes for decades, hundreds, and thousands of years into the future. Prophesies that were made 20-30 years ago have already been shown false.
- “Climate scientists” form a closed cast that claims nobody else can understand their “science,” including famous physicists and mathematicians. Very few of these “climate scientists” have scientific achievements outside of the “climate science” or related environmentalist frauds. These “climate scientists” and their political/financial sponsors have persecuted dissenters and have used government power to do so.
- These “climate scientists” are not scientists or even ordinary frauds, but the priests and shamans of the climate cult.
FSM — Fakestream Media. Former mainstream media, except for the Fox News.
Repeaters — putative reporters who do little else but repeat Leftist lies.
ScAm — the descendant of the Scientific American magazine. It is is neither scientific nor American.
PRC — the People’s Republic of China or the People’s Republic of California, depending on the context.
Sustainable Embezzlement — a theft of public funds that meets the embezzlers’ current needs without condemning them to prison tomorrow.
UCS — the Union of Con Scientists. Can be also the Unicorn Scientists – because when was the last time we saw a real scientist among UCS personalities? Formerly, the Union of Commie Scientists or the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Short recap for the FSM viewers and readers:
The so-called “climate science” is completely upside down. The anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide (CO2) is beneficial for humans and nature. Approximately 15% of the world’s agricultural production is due to the elevated amount of CO2 in the air (see reference ). The small and slow warming, which is expected from CO2 release, is also beneficial for humans and nature. (There was steep warming probably due to solar activity increase in the 80’s and 90’s but no warming in the last 19 years.) The claims that “climate change” is to blame for all the world’s disasters are nothing but myths. I cannot go into details in this short post, but the science matters were mostly settled in the 1983 Nierenberg Report with the most un-alarming conclusions. After that, the genuine scientific research and observations suggested that there’s even less concern to be had about potential harm and actually more benefits. For example, it was found that increase of CO2 concentration in the air not only enhances plant growth but decreases plant water demand . The politics of climate alarmism (conceived by the United Nations politicians) gave birth to the perverted “climate science,” not other way around. Continue reading “Climate Science” is Upside Down (recap)
A couple of weeks ago, Professor Emeritus Richard Lindzen and 300+ other scientists and professionals sent a Petition to President Trump asking the President to withdraw the United States from the United Nations Convention on Climate Change. 22 academics, calling themselves “MIT Faculty Working on Climate” published an opposing letter, parroting climate alarmism dogma.

This is an admission from NY Times on February 6: Democratic Party operatives and democratic attorney generals and governors do not know the differences between their roles. Per admission, democratic attorney generals and governors are Democratic Party operatives appointed to the positions where they benefit other Democratic Party operatives and Democratic Party donors:
“In interviews, more than a dozen Democratic attorneys general, governors and party operatives detailed a week of frenzied litigation, late-night and early-morning phone calls and text messages, and strategies devised on airplanes and at sporting events. All told, Democrats say, the legal onslaught against Mr. Trump was a crystallizing moment for the party’s attorneys general — and a model for how to stall or unwind the administration policies they find most offensive.”
“Mr. Schneiderman, a former state senator from Manhattan who is in his second term as attorney general, called the travel ban a ‘first test’ of the Democratic legal apparatus under Mr. Trump.” Continue reading Democratic Attorneys General and Other Party Operatives

The long-observed phenomenon of newsmaking – where the media is creating events instead of reporting them – has long been in existence.
In a recent example, a team of Democrat staffers and journalists launched a national campaign against elected Republican Congress attempting to hit them where it hurts – in their states and electoral districts. The gist of the campaign is to appear as members of a grassroots movement of dissatisfied citizens, rather than a Democrat-organized attack. Examples from the campaign guide (bold font is original; red highlighting is mine): Continue reading When newsmakers talk of “GOP’s delusions”
