      INVISIBLE AIRPLANE  HITS  GLASS CEILING  AT  U.N.

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:

          "  WHAT  WE  CALL THE  TROGLODYTE  NARRATIVE  "

 WHAT  BECOMES  OF  EVIDENCE BASED  POLICY  WHEN  THE  WEST  WING 
" CANNOT  BE  HANDCUFFED  BY  DATA " ?
An  anvil has  landed  on the toes of  Climate Progress founder  John Podesta. Wikileaks has let drop that the former Clinton  Chief of Staff hired not  the  Kremlin,  but  the  firm  of  K-Street  spinmeisters  that authored Masters of Disaster, and has lobbied for an  assortment of tyrants from the dictator of  Equatorial Guinea  on down, to morph 

 THE   WHITE   HOUSE    ...
 CLIMATE   COMMUNICATION   PLAYBOOK
into a ' troglodyte narrative ' with the  'Dialectic'  aim of denouncing as a  'social misanthrope'  any  Republican  questioning  Obama's agenda:

John -- 
Really nice seeing you last week... .
Per your request, attached is a memorandum outlining a possible unifying approach for the Administration when it comes to climate... 
the specific material requested(a range of so-called "frames"...written so as one could just cut and paste... to provide some strategic thinking on the politics of climate ... 

We hope this is helpful and stand ready to support whatever you may need... Break a leg (or a hand, as the case may be) tonight.

Best,      Christopher Lehane

CLIMATE: A  UNIFYING  THEORY  TO THE CASE

OVERVIEW  
Thank you for asking us to share some ideas for a holistic approach to climate. Per your direction, the goal is to unify policy, politics, and communications ...

The unifying theory is best expressed by this basic principle: If the effort to change public opinion on climate change is animated by the same one-off policies and practices that are employed to change public opinion on most other policy issues, then defeat is inevitable...

To achieve victory, we must treat climate change as... a true political social movement to create change...
 Fully leveraging ... Biblical superstorms, extreme droughts, and historic wildfires...

2. Right v. Wrong (Climate as political social change)...

one cannot be  handcuffed  by  data  on a fundamental moral issue of this kind..the magic will not be in the precision of specific words the Administration chooses to use ...


The concept must be big; it must be simple; and it must 'lean in'
to where the public is inclined to go ... The Big Idea would be the communications prism, the emotional touchstone, and the policy hub for all climate-related policies...

× Dialectic. At the end of the day... one needs to have an organizing platform that defines ... the opposition as morally responsible for an issue that threatens the health and welfare of the American people. TR had the plutocrats. FDR fought Fascism. LBJ took on poverty. And Reagan had the Soviets...


× Anti-Basic Science... The power of this approach is that it ... fits into what we call the Troglodyte Narrative
(anti-women; anti-Latino; anti-gun safety; anti-common sense fiscal policy; and anti-science) that is raising basic trust issues for the Republican Party ...

× Frame climate as... You either are a member of our society or you are a social misanthrope (i.e., litterer, smoker around a pregnant women, etc.).

×
Justice... This frame would also fit... the Administration’s focus on equality/opportunity, and could encompass both domestic issues and international issues (rising seas wiping out millions of poor people in Southeast Asia, droughts leading to famine in Africa; rising temperatures creating plagues in Latin America)...

× Anti-Tobacco... We realize that this is likely a bridge too far, but we felt obligated to present it in the range of options...



The Winning Principles 


- ending royalties to the most profitable companies in the world and sending the money back to the public as a tax break

- solar panels along our public roads that would reduce energy costs for all Americans

- barring or limiting utilities from charging fees to consumers who put solar panels on their domiciles

- improved drinking water standards

- significantly enhanced liabilities for companies that pollute water or pollute lands with pipeline/rail leaks

- asthma protections; establishment of a significant liability health and safety protocol related to fracking

- banning political contributions from entities that receive federal funding, permits or tax benefits related to public lands

- stronger consumes protection on gas prices to protect against refiners and distributors manipulating the supply lines

- protecting consumers from hot gas


× Briefing on the Big Idea to each and every Department/Agency. And then require that they... be held accountable and responsible.

× Weekly meeting with each agency’s point person and the White House point person.

× White House point person coordinates all activity with the White House communications office.

× Establishment of an extreme weather SWAT team..."

Those unacquainted with Troglodytes can gage Lehane's opinion of half his countrymen by Montesquieu's Persian Letters which relates:

 In Arabia there were a few people  named  Troglodytes ... so wicked and brutish that they were strangers to the principles of justice and equity.

     DIGGING  FOR  GOLD  IN  THE  CAYMAN  ISLANDS  ICECAP


HERE FOR  SOPHISTICATED INVESTORS  IS AN EARLIER TESTIMONIAL FROM  NOTED PSEPHOLOGIST & SHIRTMAKER CHRISTOPHER MONCKTON :
 David Evans’ ground-breaking work is a devastating new approach to the climate question. I have been lucky enough to observe the development of this project, and am full of admiration for both Jo and David for their dedication to carrying out a breathtaking research project with no financial reward, simply because it so desperately needed to be done. Let this be the last nail in the coffin of climate extremism. I hope that, as a result of this work, David will be properly recognized by the Australian Government, which – unlike its unlamented predecessor – is open to the possibility that influences other than Man are the principal drivers of the climate. David’s work is heroic in its scale, formidable in its ingenuity, and – as far as a mere layman can judge – very likely to be broadly correct.

   Top  20 Reasons To Leave Climate Blog Commenting  Turned  Off

                                                       1. Jay Lehr Ph.D.
Hydrologist turned Heartland Institute Science Director who speaks  with   great  authority  on the hockey stick fraud and global warming hoax,  having been convicted and jailed for defrauding the EPA of $200,000 of the taxpayer's money.


2. 'Chief Hydrologist'
A Simpsons fan whose WUWT? handle  celebrates  the segue of Sideshow Bob's younger brother  from hydrologist to criminal  mastermind, vividly recalling the career trajectory of  Heartland Science Director Lehr.

3. Piers Corbyn
Labor  Party  supremo  Jeremy Corbyn's  less  intelligent  older brother.  The  global cooling  prognosticator's more impressive publications  include a survey of  the  size  of the pebbles  on  Chesil Beach,  and DIY instructions  for a  brine-filled  barometer.  He believes the sun causes earthquakes.

4. Prof. Oliver K. Manuel
Cold fusion chemist who celebrated his theory that the sun is a ball of iron in guest appearances in Watts' blog and Heartland Institute  conferences until his arrest for child molestation.

5.  The Sky Dragons
Editorial  Collective formed to praise the  Lord for  CO2  and  deny the reality of atmospheric radiative equilibrium.  Claes Johnson stirs the  pseudoscience pot,  while  pseudo-lawyer John O’Sullivan touts the CD on Dominionist evangelical TV. Acolytes include Tim Ball PhD.

6. Harry Dale Huffman
Adiabat hobbyist whose denial of the greenhouse effect by eliding lapse rate data from Venus and Earth  has been eclipsed by his theory that space aliens altered the shape of the Australian continent to make it resemble an upside-down sheepdog.  You can't make these things up.

7. William Hunt Author of  'Global Warming Challenged,  which enjoyed  WUWT  endorsement until Watts actually read it and discovered its claim that :
Prior to the Little Ice Age, most of the areas where today’s core samples are taken, were not covered with ice. The ice that scientists have stated is hundreds of thousands of years old can be no more than a maximum of 650 years in age“ 

8. Doug Cotton 
Monomaniac whose unique non-GHG-based warming theory other wannabe Newtons can peruse at  Prinicipia Scientific Internationalwhich claims reconstructed Victorian lab gear proves CO2 isn't a greenhouse gas.

9. Dr.  James Wanliss 
In  Resisting  the  Green  Dragon: Dominion, Not Death  the 'Christian physicist ...explores and  corrects the religious and scientific errors of the radical Green movement'

10. Stefan “The Denier” Mikitch
Australian gulag survivor who denies the geochemical cycle of carbon , believing methane must stay underground,because its molecular weight is greater than  atomic nitrogen or oxygen. His 'METHANEGATE' website advocates jailing those who disagree.

 11. Arno Arrack
Self published author of “What Warming?” a book  whose Foreword whines about rejection by Nature and Science while citing the good and great Trofim Lysenko in support of his work.

12. David Legates, Ph.D., Author of  Putting Out the Dragon’s Fire on Global Warming. Appointed as Delaware State Climatologist  at Gov. Pete DuPont's request. 

13. Herman Alexander Pope
Retired NASA scientist turned epigrammatic bore:
When the Arctic is liquid, Earth is cooling 
When the Arctic is ice, Earth is warming 
This is the Thermostat of Earth
Shares Roy Spencer's view that excess CO2 in the atmosphere can't be from human activity.

14. Joachim Seifert                                  
Barely intelligible eastern European crank whose secret theory of climate change may or may not  relate to solar variations. If you really want to find out you must purchase his pamphlet in the original German from Amazon. ISBN number, 978-3-86805-604-4  $50 a pop.

15. Girma Orssengo
Obsessive endlessly reposting a single horizontal line graph that uses data scale compression to render global warming invisible, or at least illegible.
   
16. Mike Haseler
Author of highly original theory that photons are an elitist hoax:                            “Over time I realised that: 
 1. There is no need for the idea of a “photon”. 
 2. That none of the raw evidence requires “photons”. 
 3. That the wave-particle theory of light is anti-scientific "

17. Professor Nicola Scafetta
Duke physicist who asks: Does the Sun work as a nuclear fusion amplifier of planetary tidal forcing? ” No, Nicola, it really, really does not.

18. Bob Tisdale
Data analyst who  thinks  barometer variation explains ocean warming, but somehow can’t explain  exactly how  to the  long-suffering  referees of the A, B, C, D, E & F-list scientific journals that have serially rejected his submissions.

19. Myrrh
Antipodaen ridiculer of Climate-Philosophers in ye 3rd person:
So first Myrrh is saying that the greenhouse gases water/carbon dioxide cool the Earth by taking away the heat from the surface of the Earth through the Water Cycle and it is this cycle which has been expunged from the AGW world to pretend that greenhouse gases warm the Earth...          Hopefully a Poe.
20. Spartacusisfree (AKA  mydogsgotnonose)
Engineer who claims that the radiative properties of CO2 don’t apply to the atmosphere:
There is absolutely no experimental proof of any CO2…I became a ‘denier’ after I concluded there were 5 errors in IPCC physics. 
I may be mad, bad and deluded, but I want a second option because I’m a scientist who believes no-one.”
