Inferno

From the quill of the Blessed Anthony of Cisco, patron saint of teleprompter repairmen & blog comment censors, comes a weather report from the Infernal Regions:

Monckton Deserts Tea Party, Proposes 1.2% Global Warming Tax

Speaking in Doha, Lord Monckton has justified an annual expenditure of $1.4 Trillion a year to curb rising global temperatures.

According to the noted psephologist and shirtmaker's analysis, expenditure of $ 317 trillon  to fight cimate change between now and 2020 would be largely wasted:

" it comes out at 317 trillion dollars in cash...that's 59% of global GDP just to forestall 1/6 of a Celsius warming between now and 2020... This gives you a 48 fold multiple of the cost of action now, aganst the cost, according to Stern, of not taking action now and waiting until later."
Dividing $317,000,000,000,000 or 59% of GDP  by the viscount's 48-fold discount yields a global justified action expenditure tax  of 1.22%, or  $ 6.6 Trillion, which amounts to some $825,000,000,000 a year to do something, rather than nothing, to forestall radiative bracket creep from fossil fuel burning.

To put such an enormous figure in perspective, it would be enough to provide every man on Earth with four Monckton shirts and an autographed copy of the viscount's Daily Telegraph sudoku collection annually.

THE 'ROID RAGING STORM

As Sandy came roaring ashore, Bloomberg's Eric Pooley  blamed the wild weather on Roid Rage : “We can’t say that steroids caused any one home run by Barry Bonds, but steroids sure helped him hit more and hit them farther. Now we have weather on steroids."And it seems, weathermen too--it's hard to tell some from professional wrestlers, like Fox TV & Heartland Institute  stalwart   Joe Bastardi


Joe tells us to pay no attention to Mayor Bloomberg :

 " I am forecasting cooling and have been since 06 "
we’ve seen total global tropical activity go to record-low levels. Just because something happens in your backyard two years in a row, it has nothing to do with the total picture.”
Also sounding juiced is all-round science denier  Michael Fumentoauthor of     "The Myth of  Heterosexual AIDS"  The former Washington Times reporter hints darkly that :
There have been a lot of well-kept secrets among the global warmists—which is primarily why the so-called "Climategate" stolen e-mails proved such a scandal...
But now the truth is coming out. One fact is that there has been no statistically significant warming for quite awhile...The importance of any current plateau is that during that same period we’ve belched so-called "greenhouse gases" (GHGs) into the atmosphere at rising rates... 
Therefore the grossly simplistic formula of “greater GHG emissions equals greater warming”is false—
To his credit , Fumento has calmed down of late. claiming in Salon  to be a reformed hack,who only fibbed to please his religiously inclined editors
