DUmmie FUnnies 11-25-09 (The heat is on! One brave DUmmie takes on the Warmers!)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | November 25, 2009 | DUmmie notesdev, DUmmies, and Charles Henrickson

Posted on 11/25/2009 4:32:52 PM PST by Charles Henrickson

The heat is on! DUmmieland is heating up, and Climategate is the cause. As you probably have heard by now, a number of e-mails have been leaked from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU). These e-mails show that "scientists" there have manipulated and suppressed data that do not support their crusade to prove Anthropogenic (Man-caused) Global Warming. In other words, the CRU has been turning out C-R-U-D. This revelation could be the last nail in the boffins' coffin, the death knell of their increasingly discredited cause. Of course, the DUmmies are more upset about the e-mails being leaked than about the damaging information they contain. And the True Believers are still confessing the creed of the Church of Climatology. But one brave DUmmie is daring to take on the Warmers. He is DUmmie notesdev, and over the last few days, he has shown up on a number of threads to challenge their assertions, as you can track in notesdev's JOURNAL. It's not easy being non-green, but notesdev is taking the heat and not backing down!

Before we go to those threads, though, let's first sing this this musical tribute to the High Priest of the Church of Climatology, the Rev. Algore:

Tune: "Riders on the Storm"

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

There's an inconsistent flaw
In his scientific law
There's not one single cause
For why an iceberg thaws
The conclusion that he draws
Is giving us guffaws
An inconsistent flaw

Gore, you incoherent goof
Gore, you incoherent goof
It doesn't take a sleuth
To see your lack of proof
Here's an inconvenient truth
It's still freezing in Duluth
You incoherent goof

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm . . .

So now let us go the Warmergate Wars, in Thermometer Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson--looking forward to the annual Thanksgiving threads of DUmmies interacting with their rethuglican relatives, which are always a hoot--is in the [brackets]:

"Climate sceptics claim leaked emails are evidence of collusion among scientists" . . . If these prove to be authentic, it's vital they be read in context. . . .

["In context" means their "facts" are Fake But Accurate.]

I want the truth, no matter which side that is. I know thats not a popular opinion with so many people having vested interests in believing GW is real, but the truth is more important than ideology.


the majority of Russians are FOR global warming. . . .

[Moscow, the new Miami.]

Many of these emails seems to suggest discussion of data manipulation, freezing out skeptics, etc, etc.

[Nonsense! Why, these men are SCIENTISTS! They could not possibly be politically driven!]

GCC is a serious threat. . . .

[Notice how "Global Warming" has recently been modified to "Global Climate Change."]

Scientists have no horse in this race, therefore no reason to "lean" either way.

[Two words: Research grants. Now to the first post from DUmmie notesdev. . .]

I'm not going to make myself popular among the followers of that religion, but I am familiar with the scientific method and "global warming" has always struck me as offensive to it. I have been slack-jawed more than once, watching the extreme energy consumption excesses of Al Gore - the palatial mansions far beyond his needs, the constant travel on private jets, the SUVs - and trying to figure out how the true believers can be so blind to the complete disconnect between how he lives and what he claims to be true. He is well on his way to becoming a billionaire, profits sucked right out of the pockets of the suckers who took him at his word... and still, it doesn't seem to register with them that his behavior does not match up with his words. If carbon dioxide is such a problem, why is he producing it at a rate unmatched by all but a few other human beings on the planet? Nor did they blink an eye at the sudden Orwellian switch from "global warming" to "climate change", just as the hard proof was becoming known, that the planet as a whole is not warming at all. Real scientists don't find reasons to explain that away - they say, these are the facts, this is the truth, and let the chips fall where they may.

[DUmmie notesdev, you are far worse than a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL! You are a HERETIC!!! But please continue . . .]

So many claims that have been made by proponents of this agenda have been proven false, that it amazes me that anyone is still foolish enough to believe it. If the initial claims were true we would never have made it to the year 2000, the world was scheduled to end well before then. Was it so long ago that the predictions of increasing hurricane activity, made in the wake of Katrina, went silent as several quiet hurricane seasons passed?


You needn't go back very far to see hysterical prediction after hysterical prediction, that the world should already have ended many times over if these "scientists" (who were actually political agitators and not scientists at all) were correct.


Back in the day when I was just a small child, I read a fairy tale called Chicken Little. "The sky is falling!" "The sky is falling!" My friend, the sky is not falling. Climate change is perfectly natural and has gone on since the earth formed from protoplanetary mass, and that change is driven by the sun, something we can do nothing about. Global warming is a complete and total fraud.


Glen Beck, is that you?

[You've been reading the DUmmie FUnnies, haven't you?]

Why are you using right-wing talking points?

[This is called DUmmiegenic Subject Change, diverting attention from the evidence that the boffins were manipulating data.]

do you acknowledge that AGW may in fact be happening?

[A Warmer comes back at notesdev.]

An extreme improbability. Anything is possible. . . . Me plucking a nose hair in 1979 could have set off the course of events that eventually resulted in Pittsburgh winning the Superbowl last year, too. Nor could one conclusively disprove that we are not all sitting in pods, living in a virtual world constructed by a malicious alien artificial intelligence intent on harvesting our body heat for energy. . . . Each of these hypotheses has about an equal chance of being true, i.e. none.

[You are indeed a brave soul, DUmmie notesdev!]

Hiding data, deleting data, cherry picking, choosing techniques for the specific purpose of achieving an outcome that conforms to a preconception, failure to admit levels of uncertainty, failure to test a hypothesis, political advocacy, and more - it is a virtual catalogue of things that a scientist must not do in order to establish the credibility of their results. . . . These leaked emails provide yet the latest proof that nothing resembling scientific method is involved in arriving at conclusions promoted by AGW advocates.

[Notesdev, with all this mental clarity, you are now the frontrunner for Kewpie Doll of the Year! Keep going, with a post from another thread . . .]

if I assert there's a giant space dragon hiding behind the sun, who will only be appeased if we coat the moon in peanut butter, otherwise he'll eat the planet... are you going to rush to the Cape Canaveral with a jar of Skippy? (Pay no attention to my massive investment in peanut futures)

[Moonbatogenic Goober Warning.]

it's too late to make a difference- so why bother with it at this point? eat, drink, and be merry, for sometime this century- we die.

[Is that you, Joyceleyn Elders? Back to notesdev, on yet another thread . . .]

The biggest scientific scandal of the century, and all we get on DU is apologia and cover-up. This is extremely disappointing.

[This is extremely predictable. Like this Warmer apologist . . .]

It's pointless to respond seriously to wackadoodle denialism.

[The wackadoodle denialism right now is coming from who ignore the boffins' manipulation of the data. One final post from notesdev, on still another thread . . .]

I can name quite a few motives. It sure beats toiling away as an obscure and unknown climate scientist in East Anglia, if instead you get to jet the world and be a big shot at conferences, because everyone is celebrating the latest advances based on your revolutionary new results. Cushy jobs, pretty nice salary, be the big man on campus, big budgets to play with. . . . Book deals, important posts, maybe some nice undergrad climate babes, you name it. . . .

[Boffins: 'Bring on the climate babes!' Now to close, a few final thoughts from some other DUmmies . . .]

It is going to take a revolution. . . .

[The DUmmies are revolting!]

few us are willing to or even capable of making really major changes to our lifestyle. I like hot showers in the morning and I use toilet paper.

[Brown underwear = Green planet.]

Copenhagen is about one thing: getting "rich" countries to give money to "developing" nations.

[Sorry, only one Kewpie Doll per thread.]

3 Trees Said to Prove Warming! (Rush Limbaugh)
Wednesday, November 25, 2009 2:33:23 PM · by GodGunsGuts · 15 replies · 587+ views ^ | November 24, 2009 | Rush Limbaugh
3 Trees Said to Prove Warming! —snip— That’s another thing, folks. People said, “I don’t get why you believe in God, Rush. Your belief in God, how does that tell you that global warming is a hoax?” Well, belief in God is a very personal thing, but I happen to believe in a loving God of creation — and I just intellectually cannot accept the fact that a loving God which has created all this beauty and has blessed this country — I cannot believe that a God like that — would punish the human being he created for progress,...

SCANDAL! “This is Not A Smoking Gun” - It’s a “Mushroom Cloud”

“This is not a smoking gun, this is a mushroom cloud” - That’s how world-renowned climatologist Patrick J. Michaels described revelations contained in a 61Mb ZIP file that shows the systematic attempts by climate “scientists” to lie, manipulate evidence, and go to extraordinary lengths to stop the publication of any information or data which did not support the man-made global warming theory. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. In this leaked files are 1079 emails and 72 documents that thoroughly expose the lie underpinning Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”. Remember this, as...

Pajamas Media ^ | November 24, 2009 | Iain Murray
They’re calling it “Climategate.” The scandal that the suffix –gate implies is the state of climate science over the past decade or so revealed by a thousand or so emails, documents, and computer code sets between various prominent scientists released following a leak from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the UK. This may seem obscure, but the science involved is being used to justify the diversion of literally trillions of dollars of the world’s wealth in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by phasing out fossil fuels. The CRU is the Pentagon of...

Science depends on good quality of data. It also relies on replication and sharing data. But the last couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations. Computer hackers have obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. These e-mails, which have now been confirmed as real, involved many researchers across the globe with ideologically similar advocates around the world. They were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global warming claims. The academics here also worked closely with the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Congress May Probe Leaked Global Warming E-Mails

CBS ^ | 11/24/2009 | Declan McCullagh
A few days after leaked e-mail messages appeared on the Internet, the U.S. Congress may probe whether prominent scientists who are advocates of global warming theories misrepresented the truth about climate change.... In addition to e-mail messages, the roughly 3,600 leaked documents posted on sites including and include computer code and a description of how an unfortunate programmer named “Harry” — possibly the CRU’s Ian “Harry” Harris — was tasked with resuscitating and updating a key temperature database that proved to be problematic. Some excerpts from what appear to be his notes, emphasis added: I am seriously worried...

Climategate CRU Computer Model - The Smoking Gun

We’ve posted before at Before It’s News about the fact that the emails from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU) demonstrated the intent to deceive, but now that the blogosphere is starting to go through the actual models that were built to make predictions, the extent of this scandal will be known. As the email said, “to hide the decline” — what does that actually mean? It means using hidden mathematical trickery to obfuscate the reality of what is really happening and to adjust the outcome to support your thesis. In science, this is called fraud. It’s...

ClimateGate Totally Ignored By TV News Outlets Except Fox

The Obama administration has another reason to hate Fox: it appears to be the only national television news outlet in America interested in the growing ClimateGate scandal. Despite last Friday morning’s bombshell that hacked e-mail messages from a British university suggested a conspiracy by some of the world’s leading global warming alarmists — many with direct ties to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — to manipulate temperature data, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and NBC through Monday evening have completely ignored the subject. LexisNexis searches indicate that NPR appears to also be part of this news boycott. By...

Obviously traumatised by that infamous email leak from East Anglia which revealed the unedifying spin tactics of some of the climate change lobby’s most influential spokesmen (news of which has gone round the world faster than any super-polluting passenger jet), the Global Warming Party opens another front. Climate change policies are good for your health. According to a series of articles specially commissioned by the Lancet, such measures as cutting carbon emissions and reducing livestock production could bring significant improvements in the general health and well-being of the world’s populations. Reducing carbon emissions would improve air quality. Increased walking and...

Call it the Domino Effect. After Monday’s Newsnight item on the Climategate scandal it is evident that the leaked e-mails allegedly from the University of East Anglia’s manmade global warming propaganda unit are threatening to bring down more than just the IPCC/Al Gore axis. The much-derided mainstream media are waking up to the fact that their own credibility and hence commercial viability are imminently threatened by their clinging to the climate change superstition. Do not misunderstand me. The Newsnight package was in no sense a mea culpa by the BBC; nor was it a resiling from the Corporation’s fanatical attachment...

These people have been studying this issue for a very long time and agree this problem is real,” said Ms. Browner, who President Obama has tapped as his chief of policy on global warming. The e-mails were hacked from the Climate Research Unit at the University of Wast Anglia and have come to light over the last week. They appear to show scientists saying they’ve...

Here’s a dirty little secret about the New York Times: It likes to leak things. Important things. Things that change the course of the public conversation. From the Pentagon Papers to the ruined terrorist-surveillance programs of the Bush era, the Times has routinely found that secrecy is a danger and sunlight is a disinfectant. Until now. A troublesome hacker recently released e-mails going to and from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Britain, e-mails that exposed how the “scientific experts” cited so often by the media on global warming are guilty of crude political talk,...

Accuracy in Media ^ | November 25, 2009 | Allie Duzett finally posted an article about the most recent global warming scandal: the emails that show global warming “experts” collaborating to falsify information and keep dissenting views from the public. The emails surfaced days ago, but this is the first article CNN has posted online regarding the scandal. Apparently, CNN has still not seen fit to assign its own reporters to the story; the article was carried from Wired Science. And rather than report the straight facts, the article focuses mainly on the researchers’ complaint: that emails were taken “out of context.”

I find that to be a strange statement anyway, to be “for” or “against” AGW. Either the facts say one thing or they say another, but how can one be “for” or “against” a scientific outcome? I mean, how can any rational person do so. That leaves the DUmmies out. They are at their most hypocritical when pronouncing their belief in the religion of AGW, after deriding Christian belief and its Book as “fairytales”.

I understand where you’re coming from. How can one be ‘for’ an increase in C02 emissions causing massive destruction? But I doubt that’s what’s meant. Remember, these are DUmmies. Their knowledge, and use of the English language, are limited and often overcome by misuse.

I take it to mean they support the notion than mankind abuses his environment, and they are ‘for’ global control. Naturally, the statement is vague and can easily be taken differently. But they themselves live a vague, meaningless existence, so that’s not so unusual for them.
