NYTimes: New Jersey warming?

In an editorial today hitting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for dropping out of the Northeast cap-and-trade program, the New York Times stated:

The Northeast state compact will survive Mr. Christie’s exit. It is New Jersey that will be the poorer, with less to invest in smarter energy programs, more carbon dioxide and a leadership vacancy at its helm. [Emphasis added]

New Jersey will have “more carbon dioxide”? Hey, we bet that even Mitt Romney would know that the scare is “global warming” not “New Jersey warming.”

WashPost: Freedom of Information Act not for skeptics’ use

In a bizarre Memorial Day editorial, the Washington Post criticized climate skeptics for using the Freedom of Information Act to pry documents concerning Climategater Michael Mann from the University of Virginia.

The Post labeled the skeptics’ FOIA efforts as “harrassing” and “nuisance tactics.”

The Post, however, has been entirely silent on Greenpeace’s efforts to FOIA documents from the University of Virginia concerning Pat Michaels, University of Delaware concerning David Legates and from Harvard University concerning Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas — efforts that are truly “harrassing” and “nuisance” in nature as Greenpeace acted entirely in retaliation to the FOIA request concerning Mann.

The editorial is especially gross coming on the day when America commemorates those who died to preserve everyone’s freedoms — not just those of the politically correct.

New slur against skeptics: ‘Birther-equivalent’

At first, we were mere “skeptics.” Then we became “flat-Earthers.” “Denier”, with its Holocaust-denial implications soon followed. But none of these perjoratives worked for the climate alarmists.

Now the alarmists have re-christened skeptics as “birther-equivalents.”

Well they can call us whatever names they like, but to paraphrase Galileo:

Etiam CO2 facticius non tepidus exitialis
(Still manmade CO2 doesn’t cause catastrophic warming).

Chris Christie: New Jersey’s Al Gore

Hurray, Chris Christie pulled New Jersey out of the Northeast’s cap-and-trade program… but BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!, he’s a believer in consensus science and, apparently, catastrophic manmade global warming.

While announcing that New Jersey was quitting the Regional GreenHouse Gas Initiative, Christie said,

I’m certainly not a scientist, which is the first problem. So I can’t claim to fully understand all of this, certainly not after just a few months of study. But when you have over 90 percent of the world’s scientists who have studied this stating that climate change is occurring and that humans play a contributing role, it’s time to defer to the experts.

Yes, what logic… brilliant….I don’t know anything… so rather than keeping my big fat mouth shut until I learn something, I’ll side with the likes of Al Gore, Osama bin Laden, Charles Manson, the Discovery Channel gunman, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Henry Waxman, Bobby Rush and every other whacked out, intellectually and morally bankrupt believer in global warming.

Chris Christie for President? No thanks. I’ll write in Kris Kringle first.

Poll: Gambling an infectious disease?

Which of the following is not like the others?

  • Gambling
  • HIV
  • Smallpox

If you picked “gambling”, you’d be out of step with the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases which is apparently trying to medicalize politically incorrect social behavior with this new study. BTW, HIV and smallpox were the subjects of the other two stories spotlighted in the journal’s media release.
