Global Warming, Kyoto, Environment and Politicized Science and Propaganda -- Current and Memory Lane

I have heard or read that Stephane Dion is talking coal while at least some provinces are leaning toward nuclear power.

Why Global Warming is Probably a Crock , By James Lewis, January 16, 2007, American Thinker. James Lewis blogs at www.dangeroustimes.wordpress.com


As a scientist I've learned never to say "never." So human-caused global warming is always a hypothesis to hold, at least until climate science becomes mature. (Climate science is very immature right now: Physicists just don't know how to deal with hypercomplex systems like the earth weather. That's why a recent NASA scientist was wildly wrong when he called anthropogenic warming "just basic physics." Basic physics is what you do in the laboratory. If hypercomplex systems were predictable, NASA would have foolproof space shuttles --- because they are a lot simpler than the climate. So this is just pseudoscientific twaddle from NASA's vaunted Politically Correct Division. It makes me despair when even scientists conveniently forget that little word "hypothesis.") [....]

What follows is about scientists who happen to be government funded - taxpayer funded - scientists who happened to agree with the (then-Liberal) government position ... or at least, they liked their funded positions ... at places like the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences.

Are we expected to believe there would be no bias?

[....] In the scientists' words, "we urge you and your government to develop an effective national strategy" to deal with climate change. But eight of the signators are employees of Environment Canada, Ottawa's leading climate bureaucracy. Under what bureaucratic regime do civil servants -- members of the government -- sign letters urging the government to take action?

At least another 11 of the scientists work for other government agencies, such as Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the federal department responsible for policies and programs in support of Canada's oceans and inland waters. Another agency heavily represented is the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, along with the Pacific Fisheries Conservation Council. [. . . . ]

Still another nine signators are recipients of Canada Chairs, federal government-funded academic appointments at universities across Canada. And five of the scientists who call for action and more government funding are big recipients of government funding. Chief among this group is Gordon McBean, head of the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences.

The Climate 90 letter, in fact, was released through Mr. McBean's government-funded foundation. [. . . . ]

Kyoto - from CNEWS forum discussion thread , casper35, 1/16/2007 13:15:04



- an accord that aims to fix a problem that is caused by natural forces.

- By transferring millions or billions of dollars to buy carbon credits from China

- China, a country that builds approx one coal fired station per week in order to have cheap energy to produce low cost products that out compete our products

-signed by a Liberal government that brought us the gun registry fiasco, Adscam, HRDC boondoggle, money stuffed in envelopes etc. Kyoto's credit buying program will filter through Liberal friendly institutions in Quebec with the usual LPC kickback schemes.

-the public believes Kyoto because the Liberal controlled MSM that brings a new "crisis" every year tells them that is true [MSM = mainstream media]

If the Canadian voters actually are hoodwinked by this scam then I think they deserve the fleecing that they will receive.

In time Kyoto will be revealed to be the worst of the flawed scientific reasoning since they declared that the earth was flat and the sun revolved around the Earth. Humans do not control the weather or climate.

Sensible environmental protection, pollution control, clean up of toxic sites, R&D for new environmental technology are all good. Kyoto though is a fool's game that is about nothing more than wealth transfer and money laundering.

A must read article

Why Politicized Science is Dangerous


... It's an excerpt from a book ... by Michael Crichton, called
"State of Fear".

Imagine that there is a new scientific theory that warns of an impending crisis, and points to a way out.

This theory quickly draws support from leading scientists, politicians and celebrities around the world. Research is funded by distinguished philanthropies, and carried out at prestigious universities. The crisis is reported frequently in the media. The science is taught in college and high school classrooms.

I don't mean global warming. I'm talking about another theory, which rose to prominence a century ago.

Its supporters included Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Winston Churchill. It was approved by Supreme Court justices Oliver Wendell Holmes and Louis Brandeis, who ruled in its favor. The famous names who supported it included Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone; activist Margaret Sanger; botanist Luther Burbank; Leland Stanford, founder of Stanford University; the novelist H. G. Wells; the playwright George Bernard Shaw; and hundreds of others. Nobel Prize winners gave support. Research was backed by the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations. The Cold Springs Harbor Institute was built to carry out this research, but important work was also done at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford and Johns Hopkins. Legislation to address the crisis was passed in states from New York to California. [....]

Nuclear and global warming put together: Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moving 'Doomsday Clock' closer to midnight -- Add global warming -- "I guess the nuclear threat wasn't big enough they decided to add GLOBAL WARMING." -- PuntedPosters -- www.thebulletin.org/index.htm


They don't KNOW anything, it's only what they PERCEIVE the world threat level to be, i.e. it doesn't really mean anything.

Premier: "federal government foot-dragging" over an energy accord with Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan Energy Accord
"A Big Fat Zero!"

Media Omission?

This appears to be the same article--same wording--as above but not the part about the advertisements. Why?
