The backlash begins

The SWISS seems to be angry enough at the Muslim attempts to change the country to which they emigrated that they have banned the erection of new minarets.

This is serious. The SWISS have done this. If it had been the Germans, or the French I could understand….But the SWISS?

Here is a quote that should tell you why….and it is the same thing that OG and myself have said…..”Backers said the growing Muslim population was straining the country “because Muslims don’t just practice religion.””.

Seems that some of the Swiss (57.5 to 42.5 percent)as Og and I do, the rest are with RobertaX.

ETA: Seems that the WOMEN of Switzerland were the larges supporters of the ammendment….

Climat-Gate links

Ivan Kenneally has commentary on the politics of GW “science…

Jonah Goldberg has a point about the double standard of scrutiny for these leaked emails and documents…

Some snark

Others take a look at the code that is used in the program that “models” the climate.

And Megan points out that we are basing a change in our entire lifestyle and it’s costs on a fairly faulty model.

Here we have a report that another bunch of climate data (from NZ of all places?) is “adjusted” to fit the preexisting theory, not the theory adjusting to real data….One wonders about the veracity of all of the other data used in light of these revelations….IS there any climate data that is not “adjusted” to make it fit the theory of global warming ???

Here we have the point that it’s not about the science, it’s about the funding…No one is going to pay anyone to do a report that says “all is well, we have no issues, you can relax now”….at least not more than once.

And, Via Insty, we have a piece that points out that it is all about the money and control….Not about the science, not about the environment, and not about the climate…..

Look: World leaders are going to Copenhagen in a few days to discuss how they are going to strangle their respective economies in order to reduce carbon emissions. I have no issue with reducing carbon, nor making our use of energy more efficient. But the fact is that this is, and always has been, based upon poor science and half assed computer models that were written to make the outcome fit a predetermined outcome that fits the “hockey stick” graph/theory. It’s not like there is any real proof that WE HUMANS are causing the planet to warm. In fact, we might not be. then agaibn, we might. But science like this proves nothing except that many people have gotten a lot of money for a very poor “research” product.

If the ice is all gonna melt, and the oceans are gonna rise, then why did Al the Gore just buy a bunch of oceanfront property in California??? Kinda like the “End of the World is Near” prophet buying long term investments…

Follow the links here, decide for yourself. Look at the evidence that is mounting. If this were business (Global Warming Research IS a busines, but I am talking about a private, stockholder owned business) then the FBI would be all over this, investigating for racketeering and fraudulent use of governmnet money….

Ask yourself why, if the MSM had the time and resources to fact check Sarah Palin’s book with a bunch of people, can’t they devote a portion of those resources to investigating this bogus climate “research”? Why are they whitewashing this? Who benefits?

And ask yourself why you hear very little from the MSM about it?

ETA: I have been getting HUGE traffic from Google search. For those of nyou that found me that way. Please, take the time to read some of my other posts…..Hope you like them, and if not, well, your comments might just make me take the time to re-think my opinion….I hope you enjoy my blog…

SO now…The M4 needs fixin’

Seems that the ARMY wants to fix the M4. Seems that the fixes are what everyone already says they need….A piston, and a barrel that is thicker, and a better trigger.

So maybe they are gonna buy the new Ruger??? Or maybe an SU-16?

Srsly. Why now? Not that these fixes haven’t been needed. And no I am not bashing the M4. It is a good system, albeit with some issues. But what firearms platform doesn’t have issues? (with the possible exception of the designs of JMB……)

One wonders though…Why now?

Who benefits from this? (other than the military men and women who may (and I say may) get a better, more reliable rifle.

Lies, lies, lies…..

Via Devi’s Kitchen

We have THIS…..

……have presented, as fact, data which privately they have acknowledged to be, at best, flawed.

Further, many members of The Club are editors of the reports submitted to the IPCC, and the emails show that they have deliberately cherry-picked those that agree with their position—and conspired to discredit or reject those that do not agree with their political position.

The Club has also conspired to suborne journals, and to oust editors of other journals who are perceived as being unsympathetic to their cause. And they have been successful.

The emails show that, whilst claiming that sceptics’ papers are not peer-reviewed, The Club have actively and deliberately used blackmail and smears to prevent such peer-review or, when review is unavoidable, to have conspired to skew the review process to discredit their opponents.

All of these actions render the scientific reports produced by the IPCC extremely suspect. At best.

And they most certainly destroy the concept of the “scientific consensus”.

None of these emails disprove anthropogenic climate change: but they do shatter the idea that there is no dissent and, crucially, they absolutely annihilate the idea that scientists are impartial and uncorrupt.

And these emails most certainly explode the proposition that we should reorder the world economy because of an impending climate disaster.

So we have “scientists” who have skewed data to present (and “prove”) a foregone conclusion…..That Global Warming is actually happening, and happening at a rate which will cause widespread damage to our way of life very soon….. It is incontrovertable…

Except it isn’t…and the “consensus” doesn’t exist….

While the MSM hasn’t run with this (yet) we can only hope that they will.

Spread the truth wherever you can.

SHOW people what the truth is….

Make this become mainstream.
