Bush should go on TV tomorrow night and thank Al Gore. That's right, in front of the entire nation, he should praise Al Gore.

Then he should announce that we will embark on fast tracking 50 Nuclear power plants over the next three years and will be putting a 3 dollar per gallon import tax on Venezuelan, Rusian and Iranian oil. Then put a coal tax on China and build clean burning coal plants here.

Then watch the lefties jump off buildings as Bush's scientists say that this alone will lower emissions by 25% over the next four years. Oh, and Newt will support it and take it down another 25% for four years after that.

Without raising taxes.

It's not just the Malibu left that thinks this way. Hordes of ordinary democrats feel exactly the same way. They have watched too much TV where every problem is solved by a whiz kid in the last 15 minutes of the episode. They have no idea that most technical problems take teams of highly skilled specialists months to accomplish.

The fact that the planet has warmed and cooled in the past does not prove that humans are not responsible for warming this particular time.

But it makes a hell of a case that Al Gore and his friends have yet to DISprove.

Agreed they have the burden of proof. We need to avoid making statements that we haven't proven, either.

Rush had been saying that if we can't predict the weather, how can we predict the climate. He had an expert on today that corrected him on this.

Cool name you got there.

There was more energy consumed in the manufacture, construction and maintenance of Leonardo DiCaprio's Malibu home than is needed to light the entire city of Albuquerque, where there are surely several men who can actually act

Let me know if you'd like to be added to the Ann Coulter ping list.

Due to the scant evidence, none of which is irrefutable, to support a 'global warming caused by humans' mantra, one may say liberalism needs a mythos to sustain it's irrational perspectives. Hmm, I wonder, does that make al gorghoul a high priest in the cult?

That would be an expert from NASA, calling in from Huntsville, AL. The most salient point the expert made was the lack of input to the warming/cooling debate on the precipitation cycles of the planet ... has anyone ever inputted the amount of cooling or carbon sequestering resulting from x number of feet of snow or y inches of rain? No, so the entire data mass is totally inadequate for the conclusions dolts like the weather channel face made recently.

Somebody let me know when GW is an officially recognized religion so I can form a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization and separate all these true believers from their money.

A tithe on their incomes shouldn't be too much of a burden for their beliefs.

Rush and the expert agreed that global warming hasn't been proven.

The expert stated that weather is an initial value problem - you look at the current variables and extrapolate out from there. The expert stated that climate is a different kind of problem. I think it was him that said that chip makers can't even predict things in their highly controlled environment.

Comparing the weather and the climate is like predicting the outcome of throwing a die. We don't know what the next throw will be, but we expect each side to come up 1/6 of the time for a fair die. If we make one side heavier, we still don't know the next throw, but we can still predict the proportion, particularly if we throw it enough times.

*Death Cultivation Ping

Significant excerpts from Ann's latest counteroffensive against the death worshipers.

"Global warming" is the left's pagan rage against mankind. If we can't produce industrial waste, then we can't produce. Some of us – not the ones with mansions in Malibu and Nashville is my guess – are going to have to die. To say we need to reduce our energy consumption is like saying we need to reduce our oxygen consumption.

Liberals have always had a thing about eliminating humans. Stalin wanted to eliminate the kulaks and Ukrainians, vegetarian atheist Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate the Jews, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wanted to eliminate poor blacks, DDT opponent Rachel Carson wanted to eliminate Africans (introduction to her book "Silent Spring" written by ... Al Gore!), and population-control guru Paul Ehrlich wants to eliminate all humans.

But global warming is the most insane, psychotic idea liberals have ever concocted to kill off "useless eaters." If we have to live in a pure "natural" environment like the Indians, then our entire transcontinental nation can only support about 1 million human beings. Sorry, fellas – 299 million of you are going to have to go.

Proving that the "global warming" campaign is nothing but hatred of humanity, these are the exact same people who destroyed the nuclear power industry in this country 30 years ago.

Let Them Eat Tofu!
See also, from www.straightdope.com:
Did Marie Antoinette really say "let them eat cake"?

24-Oct-1986


861024.gifDear Cecil:

Did the French queen, Marie Antoinette, ever actually utter the phrase, "Let them eat cake"? I have a friend who claims that Crazy Marie actually said something in French that, in phonetic spelling, merely sounded like "Let them eat cake." Is the line in a class with Humphrey Bogart's "Play it again, Sam"--i.e., bogus? --Willie H., Chicago

Dear Willie:

I have a dream that someday one of these alleged facts of history is actually going to pan out. However, today is not the day. While Marie Antoinette was certainly enough of a bubblehead to have said the phrase in question, there is no evidence that she actually did so, and in any case she did not originate it. The peasants-have-no-bread story was in common currency at least since the 1760s as an illustration of the decadence of the aristocracy. The political philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau mentions it in his Confessions in connection with an incident that occurred in 1740. (He stole wine while working as a tutor in Lyons and then had problems trying to scrounge up something to eat along with it.) He concludes thusly: "Finally I remembered the way out suggested by a great princess when told that the peasants had no bread: 'Well, let them eat cake.'"

Now, J.-J. may have been embroidering this yarn with a line he had really heard many years later. But even so, at the time he was writing--early 1766--Marie Antoinette was only ten years old and still four years away from her marriage to the future Louis XVI. Writer Alphonse Karr in 1843 claimed that the line originated with a certain Duchess of Tuscany in 1760 or earlier, and that it was attributed to Marie Antoinette in 1789 by radical agitators who were trying to turn the populace against her.

As for your friend's suggestion, I suppose it's possible that one day, while under the influence of powerful hallucinogens, Marie said Le theme est quete ("The theme is quest"), and was overheard by an English-speaking tourist--thus giving rise, as your friend suggests, to the "Let them eat cake" legend. But frankly I doubt it.

LET THEM EAT POT SCRAPINGS

Dear Cecil:

Thank you for so nobly coming to the defense of the much-maligned Marie Antoinette, just as you did a few years ago with the equally vilified Catherine the Great. And now, as Paul Harvey would say, here's the rest of the story ...

At the time that whoever-she-was uttered the infamous quotation "let them eat cake," the word "cake" did not refer to the familiar dessert item that the modern-day French call le gateau. The operative term was brioche, a flour-and-water paste that was "caked" onto the interiors of the ovens and baking pans of the professional boulangers of the era. (The modern equivalent is the oil-and-flour mixture applied to non-Teflon cake pans.) At the end of the day, the baker would scrape the leavings from his pans and ovens and set them outside the door for the benefit of beggars and scavengers. Thus, the lady in question was simply giving practical, if somewhat flippant, advice to her poor subjects: If one cannot afford the bourgeois bread, he can avail himself of the poor man's "cake."


However, by the time Marie Antoinette ascended the throne, brioche had acquired its current meaning--a fancy pastry item which, like le gateau, was priced far beyond the means of any but the wealthiest classes. The anti-Marie propagandists were well aware that their compatriots, most of whom were uneducated in either history or semantics, would swallow the story whole, so to speak, and not get the joke. Bon appetit! --N.D.G., Chicago

Dear N.:

That's very interesting, N., but wrong. Brioche is a sort of crusty bun, typically containing milk, flour, eggs, sugar, butter, and whatnot. It's considered a delicacy, and as far as I can determine (which is pretty far) has been since the Middle Ages. According to one cooking historian, brioche originally contained brie cheese, whence the name. Nicolas Bonnefons, writing in Delices de la campagne in 1679, gives a recipe for brioche that calls for butter and soft cheese, plus a glaze containing beaten eggs and (if desired) honey. Sounds pretty tasty, and in any case certainly not something bakers would line pots with.

--CECIL ADAMS

Thanks for the quotes. Each was illuminating in its own way.

Perhaps the quote by Jacques Cousteau helps explain his long lasting presence on PBS. We have recently seen liberal politicization of the OSCAR and Grammy awards, but I think the process has gone on for a long time.

The earth's climate is not a man made die. We neither know the next roll, nor the average of the next 1000 rolls, cooling or warming. The strongest evidence is that "expert opinion" will oscillate between cataclysmic claims of global warming and global cooling. Each claim provides an excuse for centralizing power in government.

I can see your point, but considering the communist background of the people behind the "global warming" movement, one should not overlook the alterior motives of those who preach "global warming" as a manmade phenomenon.
Look! They even chose Vladimir Ilych Lenin's birthday for their "Earth Day" celebration. The enviromentalists abviously have a hidden agenda behind their movement.

I agree that there may be hidden agendas going on here.

In an earlier post, I said that the Warmers had the burden of proof to show that warming is going on. Because of the possibility of great damage, I'm starting to think that the Status Quos may want to demonstrate warming is not going on.

If warming is occurring, I don't think it's relevant whether it's caused by humans (other than to confirm it's happening and/or to help design a solution).
