The Carboniferous Ends?

Posted in Politics, The Environment on July 21st, 2014

A cooling world covered in snowChange is unavoidable. All epochs, periods, eras, and ages come to an end. Just as 360 million years ago the Carboniferous period ended, so too does it seem as if the New Carboniferous period – notable for its fixation upon CO2 – has come to a not-untimely end.

Then, this was never a sustainable era due to its chilling effects upon economies.

The ending of the New Carboniferous period will likely be dated from the moment that the Australian Government has abolished the carbon tax it had imposed in mid-2012.

Australia’s recent vote to repeal its tax on carbon dioxide emissions is a setback to establishing a similar charge in the U.S., both sides in the debate agree.

Australia started taxing carbon in 2012, one of about 40 jurisdictions to do so, before reversing course last week and becoming the first country to repeal the penalty.

The repeal will send international shock waves ahead of Global Warming talks next year, when major economies like China, India and America will consider global greenhouse targets beyond 2030. Given that Australia is similar to America in its energy-intensive lifestyles and industries, the repeal makes it highly unlikely that the US will choose to try taxes CO2 emissions.

The Warmists are, of course, gnashing their teeth in shock, outrage, and hatred over Australia’s repeal of the its carbon tax. Like the giant arthropods of the first Carboniferous period, they’re doomed to extinction. Unlike them, however, they can see the ending of the age and of themselves.

Climate Heresy

Posted in Politics on June 12th, 2014

The Magisterium of the Warmist faith have- and make great use of their Inquisition.  Woe betide the scientist who strays from orthodoxy and into climate heresy. While the Inquisitions tools are different than they were, they are no less terrifying to those who have failed to appreciate and follow the AGW doctrine as it is set forth for them.

Global Warming Heresy
The Climate Change Inquisition Brooks No Heresy

For those souls who do not accept the incontrovertible Word of Mann, there is nothing but confinement and pain until such time as the recant and return to the Global Warming flock.

I’m left wondering, however, about how many, if any, dedicated scientists muttered, “Eppure si raffredda.” after their required Auto-da-fé.

For those who don’t already know, Eppure si raffredda is Italian for “But it cools” which is a riff upon- and homage to Galileo Galilei’s utterance of, “Eppur si muove” – But yet it moves – after after his being forced to recant that the earth moves around the sun by the Inquisition.

Climatard

Function: noun

Definition(s):

  1. A person with no formal education or training in science, who believes that carbon dioxide is a pollutant and that the world’s climate is being disastrously altered by human emissions of this vital gas which is essential to life. Favors drastic, unreasonable measures, with no proof that they will have any effect and which will cause real, immediate economic devastation for the poor and middle class. Flies into a rage if you don’t agree with him.
