                   IF  YOU CAN'T  BEAT  THEM,  JAIL THEM !

Faux fact and fox hunter James Delingpole has  adduced  some exceedingly  odd  statistics and legal  theories since last falling 
off his horse.

Breitbart's  hack  in  a  hacking jacket now offers Fox news fans:

Trump Versus The Green Blob: 
The Biggest Science Scam
 in History
“I’ve waited 40 years for this moment.” In a congressional meeting room, somewhere on Capitol Hill, one of the world’s  leading sceptical climate scientists,  Dr. Tim Ball,  is toasting  the advent of  the Trump administration... talking about the war on the Green Blob... You can hear more about Ball’s struggle for truth on my latest Delingpole podcast—
The galloping Trollope impersonator says funding  climate research costs 'one point five trillion dollars a year'.  Flattering  as this four order of magnitude exaggeration may  be -- it  would  give  every  climate scientist on  Earth a cool million  dollars a day, it  suggests he ought to wear a harder hat when riding for a fall. Far  from being a  climate scientist, Doctor Tim Ball is a former geography professor whose Exxon and American Petroleum Institute funded research focuses on colonial weather reports and the migration of polar bears and Canada geese.

Another speaker  Malcolm  Roberts, the Senator from Australia's Coal Coast, tells us that besides Oil Patch Senator James Inhofe, the CEI/ Cooler Heads Coalition event featured Tony Heller,  Fred Singer,  Ken Haapala, Craig Rucker,   Steve Milloy, Marc Morano,  Chris Horner, Myron Ebell,  James Taylor,  Pat Michaels  and Marlo Lewis- the same company  Delingpole kept  at last year's gala  COP-21  Climate Hustler  film premiere :

Delingpole cheerfully continues:
" will be the beginning of the end for the Green Blob—that sinister cabal of corrupt politicians, UN- and EU-technocrats, bent scientists, shrill activists, rent-seeking corporatists, blood-sucking lawyers and gullible journalists which has held the world to ransom these last four decades...
by describing it I hope what I’ve succeeded in doing is giving you an indication of the extraordinary tentacular reach of the Green Blob... 
“Oh come on!” these people have always said when you try to call them on it. “What kind of deranged conspiracy theorist would you have to be to suggest that all these different groups with different interests would be working together to lie about global warming?” 
You really don’t need to be a conspiracy theorist to believe this stuff, though. All you need is to be cognisant of the facts. These people are crooks. A lot of them should be in prison. 
In fact, funnily enough, that was the joke that got Tim Ball in trouble with Michael Mann. “He shouldn’t be in Penn State. He should be in the state pen,” Ball quipped. 
Not just Michael Mann. They all should. 


Has Mike Adams, Health Ranger, applied for a Cabinet post yet?

Just look at  his  credentials:

     hit piece on Natural News backfires: 

Health Ranger confirmed as world’s most powerful foe of corporate science fraud

Two  years  ago,  I  exposed  writer  Jon Entine  as  a  violent psychopath who physically attacked his wife  and  committed widespread journalistic fraud  to push Monsanto propaganda... and Jon Entine share a common philosophy of deep deception. Both are malicious journo-terrorists, and both take money from powerful corporate interests (like the biotech industry) to smear, slander and defame critics who threaten the profits of their corporate sponsors...

Forbes was purchased by the communist Chinese

Forbes is a failing propaganda mouthpiece for globalist corporations like Monsanto and various drug and pesticide companies...It found a buyer...Hong Kong  Integrated Asset Management, founded by Tak Cheung Yam...This means  is majority owned by the communist Chinese.

No wonder the publication hates American patriots (and truth in general). Now, it functions more like a Red China propaganda rag than anything resembling a legitimate news organization.

While much of the left-wing media in America is currently accusing independent media of being run by the Russians, the deeper truth is that is run by the communist Chinese,

and one of its propaganda goals has been to target and attack U.S. patriots who support the Constitution,  the  Bill of Rights  and  scientific truth...  so  that  vaccine companies  can  keep receiving  billions of dollars  in government money to roll out more completely unnecessary vaccines  based on a quack medical hoax... targeting  me  personally... employing actual sociopaths to pen its propaganda articles while being run by the communist Chinese. These propaganda efforts are not incidental, they are deliberate.

As  far as  actual  science  goes, Natural News  was the  first  science  journalism  site  in the world  to  warn  Americans  about  the  dangers  of  combining  DEET-based  insect  repellants with  non-organic  food  sprayed  with  carbamate pesticides... which  interferes with  cognitive function  and  can  promote  symptoms  resembling  Alzheimer’s  and dementia...  even the Washington Post admitted, that the Zika virus links to microcephaly were a quack science hoax.

Life and Labor in the Era of  Climate Justice

As radicals, it is our job to respond to the very newest political formations, and few have presented themselves with the urgency of the tendencies that have sprung up to address and combat the climate crisis. For the purposes of this talk, let me outline four of these tendencies
1) The first is the emergence of the carbon calculus as an overriding measure of our ability to meet the crisis...  we must proceed by any means necessary, even if it involves following pathways that are undemocratic. 
But the most everyday manifestation of this new calculus is the growing habit of assessing the carbon footprint of every product... –the outcome of which is a moral assessment of our thermodynamic performance. Carbon-Neutral Man is the goal, a model of ascetic behavior that is the obverse of the wasteful hyperconsumer.
2) The second tendency is ... reforming the behavior of... the more recalcitrant classes... New York, is  best known for eliminating smoking, banning “trans fats” in city eateries, barring the purchase of soda drinks by welfare recipients, and covering the city with bicycle lanes... perpetuating a status quo which could be loosely but accurately described as eco-apartheid.
3) The third tendency emerges from the opportunity offered to us by the Great Recession to launch... the market segment known as LOHAS, or Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability...
4) The fourth tendency flows from the concept of climate justice... a carbon-conscious version of the politics of wealth redistribution... If the footsoldiers of anti-precarity were looking for a righteous banner to march under, then the urgency and missionary purpose radiated by radical sustainability would fit the bill...
In the counter-hegemonic spirit of Gramsci ... its people’s summit meeting earlier was held in a center of indigenous socialism, Bolivia’s Cochabamba...  In the global North, the slow food movement is probably the closest in spirit to Cochabamba’s agrarianist consciousness
Now, the mentality of austerity threatens to relegate red-greens to the same corner as financial elites who sought lavish help from the public treasuries ... if the climate crisis did not exist, it may have been necessary to invent it so that this synchrony could finally occur.

The New York Times reports Wonder Woman  has  been terminated  as  a  Climate Ambassador,   after  being denounced as inappropriate to represent female empowerment  at The United Nations:

“A  large-breasted white  woman  of   impossible  proportions, scantily clad  in a  shimmery,  thigh-baring body  suit  with  an  American flag  motif  and knee-high boots
  reported the Times, would set back  UN diplomacy on :

"the importance of the issue of gender equality and the   empowerment   of   women  and   girls   to  the previous appointment of fictional characters... such as Tinkerbell,  Ambassador of  Green & Winnie the Pooh,  Ambassador  of  Friendship'
Ambassador  Wonder Woman's   termination leaves  protocol experts puzzled, as Secretary General Ban Ki Moon appointed another large-breasted fictional character of  impossible  proportions,  scantily clad in a shimmery,  thigh-baring  body suit earlier this year:

Noted  Wittgenstein  Scholar  Tractatus  Illogico-Trumphagus  author Scottie Nell Hughes reaches an  epistemological  tipping point:

After tweeting President Obama:
Sorry Mr President, Climate change is NOT a fact just like I COULD NOT keep my doctor! @scottienhughes.
The post-conservative philosopher told Esquire :

 “One thing that’s been interesting this campaign season to watch is that people that say facts are facts—they’re not really facts. Everybody has a way —it’s kind of like looking at ratings or looking at a glass of half-full water,”
“Everybody has a way of interpreting them to be the truth or not true. There’s no such thing, unfortunately anymore, of facts. 

And so Mr. Trump’s tweets, amongst a certain crowd—a large part of the population—are truth.


'Tis the season to be  intercomparing  climate model impacts  on price projections for vital seasonal commodities like Frankincense, Myrrh, Mistletoe, Partridges  and  Pear Trees. 
In terms of Bayesian priors, my last partridge  came free of charge, but a day late, at a Boxing Day shoot, & my last pear tree cost $28.

  • Partridge, $20; last year: $25
  • Pear tree, $190; last year: same
  • Two turtle doves, $375; last year: $290
  • Three French hens, $182; last year: same
  • Four calling birds (canaries), $600; last year: same
  • Five gold rings, $750; last year: same
  • Six geese-a-laying, $360; last year: same
  • Seven swans a-swimming, $13,125; last year: same
  • Eight maids a-milking, $58; last year: same
  • Nine ladies dancing (per revel),  $7,553; last year: same
  • 10 lords a-leaping (per saltation),  $5,509; last year: same
  • 11 pipers piping (per  warlike  noise), $2,708; last year: $2,635
  • 12 drummers drumming (per ratapan pan), $2,934; last year: $2,855
    The following  bulk  prices are per pound FOB  E-bay    
    Frankincense $6.97   Myrrh $4.61   Mistletoe $7.08   
Disclosure & disclaimer  
This list is not intended  for fiduciary use, as  Lord Monckton charges vastly more  than  $550  for leaping to conclusions, swan cost no more to shoot than partridge, and the partridge & pear tree were 5,000 km apart. 
  Frankincense & myrrh prices are liable to sudden change in response to unhappy events in Palmyra & Arabia Felix
Seek  professional advice  before attempting  to install  a swan in a pear tree

                     THE  BLOG  OF  THE  WALKING  DEAD

Frank Lutz and the Reverend Moon  resonate from the rafters as  John Podesta's protege' leads his Climate Progress acolytes in chanting mantras from the dark Progressive Arts of  Not Reading,  Not Watching Fox and Never, Ever Ever Changing The Message:
 Dr. Joe Romm is Founding Editor of Climate Progress, “the indispensable blog,” 
as NY Times columnist Tom Friedman describes it.

9 things you can do right now to fight Trump’s war on climate and democracy
Activism is the sixth stage of grief

I have a feeling many of you reading this are still going through the famous five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Maybe all at once...

President-elect Donald Trump and his den of deniers pose an existential threat to America, the world, and, sadly, the next 50 generations. Whatever warming, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and Dust-Bowlification that we commit to because of his anti-science, pro-pollution policies will be irreversible on a timescale of a thousand years...
always remember the words of Frank Luntz, the GOP’s top messaging strategist: “There’s a simple rule: You say it again, and you say it again, and you say it again, and you say it again, and you say it again, and then again and again and again and again, and about the time that you’re absolutely sick of saying it is about the time that your target audience has heard it for the first time.”

Don’t debunk Trump’s lies by repeating them and don’t read news outlets that do. ..

Change your TV viewing habits. Stop watching cable news...  I’d suggest “NCIS” and “The Walking Dead.”... As you watch, consider who the zombie horde is a stand in for many Trump voters….

 it's never to late to realize the debate isn't over:

Academia must resist political confirmation bias
It is crucial to fight discrimination in all its forms, but it is unhelpful 
to exclude conservative voices from debate.

Article tools

According to surveys and statistics, most Nature readers place themselves on the liberal left of the political spectrum. So two items published in The New York Times in the past few weeks will have provoked both consternation and debate. Many of our readers, for example, must have shaken their heads in despair while reading the transcript of an interview with US president-elect Donald Trump last week. The other item, an opinion piece entitled ‘The end of identity liberalism’ probably had many academics simply shaking.

This 9-step program is like 
Alcoholics Anonymous for climate anxiety.
The plan comes from the Salt Lake City support group “Good Grief,” which comforts people understandably stressed out by a warming planet, reports Yale Climate CommunicationsFrankly, it couldn’t have come soon enough. 
Laura Schmidt, who works at a clean air nonprofit in Utah, created the group to address what she calls “climate grief”: the feeling of anxiety and hopelessness that can overwhelm environmentalists. You may also know it as climate-based depressionclimate burnout, or eco-anxiety. 
After consulting with activists and scientists and studying the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step model, Schmidt designed a program meant to unpack this emotional burden. The first step? Admitting there’s a problem. Other steps include acknowledging complicity in carbon emissions, finding beauty in nature, and reinvesting in climate activism. 
Schmidt hopes to roll out the program in Good Grief come January and create even more resources for her fellow climate grievers, such as workshops and classes. 
The nine-step plan joins the burgeoning ranks of other forms of climate therapy, from the government’s $8.2 million program for the mental health of Superstorm Sandy survivors to the New England poet–turned–climate-anxiety-doctor. After all, climate resilience can be emotional too.

Tsar Bomba  51 megaton  Soviet  H-bomb test ,
 October 30 1961

Dear Comrade Fidel Castro:
We have received your letter of October 28... and are taking into account your difficulties... from the threat of an attack by American imperialists ... In your cable of October 27 you  proposed that we be  the  first  to carry out  a nuclear strike  against the enemy’s territory. Naturally you understand where that would lead us.   It would not be a simple strike, but the start of a thermonuclear world war.
Dear Comrade, I find your proposal  to  be  wrong,  even though I understand your reasons... Without a doubt the Cuban people would have fought courageously but... We struggle against imperialism, not in order to die, but to draw on all of our potential, to lose as little as possible, and later to win more, so as to be a victor and make communism triumph...
We consider that the aggressor has suffered a defeat. He was preparing to attack Cuba, but we stopped him ... This process of struggle will last for as long as there exists on this earth two sociopolitical systems, until one of the systems, and we know that it will be our communist system, triumphs world-wide...
Chairman of the  Presidium of The Supreme Soviet of  The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics 


The  ashes  of  Cuba's  longest  serving  Dictator For Life  were  interred  today,  two  miles from San Juan Hill, where Theodore Roosevelt, later democratically elected as President of the United States, liberated the isand from imperial domination by defeating the forces of the King of Spain  in 1898.
