In what I considered a wonderful tweak on the "climate change" orthodoxy, Ann Coulter remarked at CPAC over the weekend that due to the effects of global warming, Miami was just awarded the Winter Olympics for 2014.

Believe it or not, the 2014 Winter Olympics are going to be in Sochi, Russia, which "has a humid subtropical climate, and winter temperatures which rarely fall below freezing". Google it if you don't believe me.

By the way, in case you missed it.

“You’d be an idiot not to notice the temperature change,” Glenn Beck says. He also says there’s a legit case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind.
Make America Great Again! - Trump in 2020 ... "We're a capitalistic society. I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. They're not going to bail me out. I've been on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No." - Craig T. Nelson, actor.

Of course, this is pretty poor reasoning. But it's an amusing turnaround from a guy who appears to have little concern for truth or responsibility.

Is your statement about Glenn Beck based on what others say about him or do you actually listen to him daily?

Not daily, Tom, he isn't available here in real time. I am basing it on the many links to his site and videos of his performances that I have followed.

It is certainly possible that when I am not looking he is perfectly reasonable and rational. That would a very surprising sampling error. But it could happen.

That is real scientific basing your statements on cherry-picked links and sound bites that are put together to show someone in the least favorable light possible.

Tom, it was a gag.

You may have noticed that, although I am often earnest, I sometimes try to be funny.

You may have also noticed, that I do my best to base my scientific opinions on scientific evidence. If Glenn Beck has any of that, please link me to it and I'll give it a whirl.

Sheesh.

An extract from the ‘official’ “Rules of the Game”

• Refreeze good behaviours
Once you’ve woken or ‘unfrozen’ people from their sleepwalking behaviour, you can convince them to change. But once they’ve adopted the new behaviours, you need to find a way of ‘refreezing’ them, so the positive behaviour becomes an unconscious habit again.

You may not believe this is some scary ****ing ****, nor that that “The Rules Of The Game“ is Orwellian and evil, nor an official handbook on how to brainwash, nor that, ALL politicians must be confronted with his Goebbellesque monstrosity for which we are paying and demand it be withdrawn from use, but that is the general consensus of the experts.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

So, Tommy. Who wrote the pamphlet and for whom? Who has used it?

Futerra is the sustainability communications agency; from green to ethical, climate change to corporate responsibility. For nearly nine years we've helped you save the world.

http://www.futerra.co.uk/

They have a new one out called “The New Rules of the Game” apparently. They are the PR firm for the global warming authorities.

There is nothing new about “Greenwash” of course, you know Greenwash?
This stuff:

What does this gobbledygook mean? Who uses their advice? Why are they relevant to this discussion? Are they a serious player, or just one of the many special interest groups latching themselves into a movement?

Come on, Tommy. If you claim that they have some significance to this discussion, it is incumbent on YOU to tell us what it is.

I guess that means you aren't going to bother finding out if your latest link has any relevance to the discussion...


Will everyone who is surprised please raise your hand.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

-Joseph Goebbels

My favorite part is each accusing the other side of big lies, or socialism or whatever buzz word we can use to get people worked up against them.

I would prefer a more fact based discussion than one of name calling and hyperbole.

I often forget that part sir, and I am glad you reminded me. Also once you have someone fearing the other point of view, it is easier to jump to demonisation, and eventually hatred of them. This way those in power keep amassing it.
