Warming Jihad

Posted in Politics, The Environment on January 8th, 2014

“Climate professor” Chris Turney assembled a tax-payer funded Global Warming propaganda junket to the Antarctic which ended up evidencing the massive expansion of Antarctic ice in the most ironic and visceral manner as their ship become stuck in the polar ice followed by the Chinese icebreaker sent to rescue them also becoming entrapped in the same ice.

Warmist Jihad
Death To Infidels!

I suppose fortunately, both the global warming expedition vessel and the Chinese rescue ship trapped in Antarctica have exploited cracks in the ice to break free and steam toward safety.

Don’t expect any in-depth analysis of this and its meaning from the Lamestream Media though. They’ve been studiously avoiding mentioning that Turney’s expedition was a Global Warming propaganda trip, which set out to prove climate change, ended up trapped in the very ice that they sought to prove had melted. This is because they know that it is no wiser to antagonize the Warmists than it is to antagonize the Islamists.

Double Coyote Ugly

Posted in Humor, Politics, Technology, The Environment on December 18th, 2013

As most know, politics makes for strange bedfellows, especially with the intersection of business interests and political careers. It’s often odd, commonly disgusting, but sometimes it’s downright self-destructive.

A Case in point would be Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s chronic and apparently uncontrollable addiction to “Green” energy systems

Chu Coyote Ugly
Oh, Christ, What The Hell Did I Do Last Night?

I swear he’s worse in some ways than Anthony Weiner. At least, to our knowledge, Weiner wasn’t paying for it and certainly wasn’t paying for it with our money.

WASHINGTON—Sources have reported that following a long night of carousing at a series of D.C. watering holes, Energy Secretary Steven Chu awoke Thursday morning to find himself sleeping next to a giant solar panel he had met the previous evening. “Oh, Christ, what the hell did I do last night?” Chu is said to have muttered to himself while clutching his aching head and grimacing at the partially blanketed 18-square-foot photovoltaic solar module whose manufacturer he was reportedly unable to recall.

We’re talking some serious coyote ugly here. The truly sad part is that we’re also talking about an odd and sad twist to the phrase, “Double Coyote Ugly,” since it’s anyone’s guess which one them would be more likely to want to gnaw their own limb off in order to escape that bed without waking the other. ;-)

You’ve Got To Love Fish

Posted in Politics, Society, The Environment on December 6th, 2013

Really! You’ve got to love fish. Hopefully you also love fishing because it’s one of life’s better entertainments.

You’ve Got To Love Fish

Well here are six women, all celebrities, who love fish enough to get naked with them in order to draw attention to the sad fact that we’re not practicing anything remotely close to what could be called intelligent and sustainable fishing practices and, resultantly, we’re crashing fish populations.

This is a world apart from- and at least an order of magnitude better than PETA’s stupid attempt to manipulate children with their Sea Kittens campaign atrocity. Then Fish Love is a practical and pragmatic group of activists whereas PETA is a cult of pseudo-religious fanatics so this is to be expected.

The British environmental activist group, Fishlove was set up in 2009 by Nicholas Röhl, co-owner of the Japanese restaurant MOSHIMO, and actress Greta Scacchi to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth’s marine ecosystem and threatening local economies across the globe.

Yes, it’s true that Fish Love, like all activists, bases their actions on the worst-case scenario and probably overplays the immediacy of the threat to both marine ecosystems and local economies. That doesn’t, however, mean that they’re in any way shape or form wrong in slightest about the threat itself.

If nothing else, and to expand upon Fish Love’s theme, we don’t want this to come to an end, now do we?

Gaff Girls Show The Beauty Of Fishing

So we really need to fish more responsibly if we want to continue fishing in the future.
