Søren Espersen: Aldrig igen danske soldater til arabiske borgerkrige – Libyen var en fejl
27.02.2012 – af Lasse Marker
DF’s forsvarsordfører Søren Espersen støttede interventionen i Libyen, fordi ”Gadaffi var i færd med at ville bombe sin egen befolkning.” I Syrien bomber Assad lige nu sin egen befolkning, men Espersen vil ikke intervenere: ”Vi skal lære af de fejl, vi begår [...]

C. Hedegaard om klima-passivitet: Demokrati er en del af problemet
29 december 2011 – af Esben Alslund-Lanthén
”Med situationen i den amerikanske kongres, den seneste femårsplan i Kina, og det faktum at der er en ny ledelse på vej begge steder, er der ikke ti vilde heste, der vil kunne få de to største udledere til at gå med til en tidligere deadline.” Det siger EU-klimakommissær Connie Hedegaard [...]

Never mind where you might stand on the question of global warming, global cooling, climate change or plain old weather. If there’s one constant to this entire climate debate, it is that in the name of “climate,” the United Nations wishes to regulate and tax the economy of the planet — stripping resources from the most productive economies to hand them out as assorted UN bureaucrats deem fit.
This is an agenda for global central planning — which, at the extreme, is what the Soviet Union envisioned as the radiant future of mankind, at least until the USSR itself collapsed as a basket case of monstrously misallocated resources, pervaded by the nightmare repression required to enforce such a system. Nonetheless, at the UN this agenda keeps coming up, year after year, at one climate conference after another. The proclamations of emergency have varied, but always, in the middle of it, there is the UN, proposing to serve as planner and traffic cop for global commerce — a role that entails the UN aiming to redirect resources and collecting a cut to cover the administrative enterprises of its own neo-colonial empire of agencies, organizations, intergovernmental outfits, programs and special envoys. Somehow that already includes a need for climate conferees to travel great distances at other people’s expense, with UN officials touching down from business class long-haul flights to spend a week, or maybe two, conferring at luxury hotels in locations such as Rio, Copenhagen, Cancun and Bali.

The Fraudsters Who Invent the “Science” of Climate Change
By Rael Jean Isaac – January 3, 2012
This is a book about the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an outfit few know much about if indeed they have heard of it at all. That’s unfortunate because the IPCC is having a huge impact on all our lives. The IPCC has fashioned the so-called “scientific consensus” that man-made global warming threatens the future of the planet. Its periodic weighty Reports (literally, they are in the range of 800 pages and up) are the basis for the efforts by the governments of developed countries to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions and in the process make the energy our economy depends on to function, and we depend on to drive our cars, heat our homes and power our appliances, vastly more expensive.
Journalist Donna Laframboise has exposed the full range of deceptive techniques, at times descending into outright fakery, practiced by the IPCC. While her sprightly title may suggest a flippant take on the issues, Laframboise has performed an astonishing feat of investigative journalism. It is all the more impressive given that she had retired from her journalistic career and was working as a solitary blogger, with none of the resources of the literally thousands of journalists worldwide who have covered the IPCC reports with mindless, slavish adoration.
U.S. Justice Department request puts chill on skeptical bloggers
In recent days I’ve been receiving calls and emails asking what the U.S. Justice Department wants with me. In fact, there has been a misunderstanding. I write a blog about climate-change dogma that has a similar Web address to a blogger in the United States. It is that person — who publishes under the pen name Jeff Id at NOconsensus.wordpress.com — who is being targeted.
Earlier this month, a trial attorney employed by the Justice Department’s criminal division sent a formal request to WordPress (the blogging software company) to freeze for 90 days “all stored communications, records, and other evidence in your possession” regarding three climate-skeptic blogs. ClimateAudit.org — written by Canadian Steve McIntyre and hosted on WordPress’ U.S.-based servers — was one of that trio. So was Tallbloke’s Talkshop, written by a U.K. resident and published at tallbloke.wordpress.com.
Thatcher advisor Lord Monckton to pursue fraud charges against Climategate scientists: Will present to police the case for ‘numerous specific instances of scientific or economic fraud’
Monckton: ‘I have begun drafting a memorandum for prosecuting authorities…to establish…the existence of numerous specific instances of scientific or economic fraud in relation to the official ‘global warming’ storyline…they will act, for that is what the law requires them to do’
Making the police state work for you
By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley in London – December 15, 2011
Now that six policemen from the Norfolk and Metropolitan forces have invaded the home and “borrowed” the computers of “Tallbloke”, the first blogger in the UK to reveal the existence of the 5000 Climategate 2.0 emails, you may ask why the British police seem so much more interested in tracking down and punishing the whistle-blower/“thief” than in dealing with the many crimes by crooked IPCC “scientists” that the emails expose.
There is a good reason why the police have gone after the whistle-blower and yet have not moved against those whose far more serious crimes the emails he released expose. Though the University of East Anglia has complained to the police about the “thief”, no one has complained about the climate crooks whose crimes the University seems so zealous to conceal.
“The New Malthusians” sounds like the name of a new wave or punk band, but just as new wave is old school, there is never anything new about Malthusianism no matter how many times it gets punked. Only the band members change. When the world’s population reached the estimated 7 billion mark a few weeks ago, the most famous Malthusian of modern times, Paul Ehrlich, made a few encore appearances for old time’s sake, but for the most part Ehrlich and his generation of Malthusian rock stars, such as Garrett Hardin, Lester Brown, and the Club of Rome, appear about a fresh as Keith Richards after a 7 am wake up call. The old guys really need to be retired (well, actually, Garrett Hardin is long dead anyway), to make room for the new kids. The criteria for making the list are simple: a winner’s Malthusianism has to be essentially unmodulated from the older kind, be relentlessly monotonic, be extremely lucrative, and/or a pretext for increased centralized political power.

Climategate (Part II)
A sequel as ugly as the original
Steven F. Hayward | December 05, 2011
The conventional wisdom about blockbuster movie sequels is that the second acts are seldom as good as the originals. The exceptions, like The Godfather: Part II or The Empire Strikes Back, succeed because they build a bigger backstory and add dimensions to the original characters. The sudden release last week of another 5,000 emails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of East Anglia University—ground zero of “Climategate I” in 2009—immediately raised the question of whether this would be one of those rare exceptions or Revenge of the Nerds II.
Before anyone had time to get very far into this vast archive, the climate campaigners were ready with their critical review: Nothing worth seeing here. Out of context! Cherry picking! “This is just trivia, it’s a diversion,” climate researcher Joel Smith told Politico. On the other side, Anthony Watts, proprietor of the invaluable WattsUpWithThat.com skeptic website, had the kind of memorable line fit for a movie poster. With a hat tip to the famous Seinfeld episode, Watts wrote: “They’re real, and they’re spectacular!” An extended review of this massive new cache will take months and could easily require a book-length treatment. But reading even a few dozen of the newly leaked emails makes clear that Watts and other longtime critics of the climate cabal are going to be vindicated.
More nails for the coffin of man-made global warming
November 28, 2011 – by Jim Lacey
Global-warming skeptics spend much of their time knocking down the fatuous warmist claim that the science is settled. According to the warmists, this singular piece of settled science is attested to by hundreds or thousands of highly credentialed scientists. In truth, virtually the entire warmist edifice is built around a small, tightly knit coterie of persons (one hesitates to refer to folks with so little respect for the scientific method as scientists) willing to falsify data and manipulate findings; or, to put it bluntly, to lie in order to push a political agenda not supported by empirical evidence. This is what made the original release of the Climategate e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia so valuable. They clearly identified the politicized core of climate watchers who were driving the entire warmist agenda. Following in their footsteps are all the other scientists who built their own research on top of the fraudulent data produced by the warmist core.

School turns heating off to ‘save planet’
Fury as kids shiver on coldest day
By John Coles – 06 Dec 2011
A headteacher got a roasting yesterday for turning the school heating OFF on one of the coldest days of the year — to save the planet.
Pupils shivered in coats, hats and scarves as temperatures fell to just 1°C (34°F).

Morten Løkkegaard: Merkel og Sarkozy prioriterer i for høj grad markedet over demokratiet
Af Lasse Marker – 14. december 2011
”På kort sigt har markedet brug for en hurtig og effektiv løsning. Men jo hurtigere og mere effektiv en løsning er, jo mindre demokratisk vil den være.” Det siger Morten Løkkegaard (MEP for Venstre) til RÆSON. Han mener, Merkel og Sarkozy i dét dilemma burde prioritere demokratiet højere:
Unionen regeres af 27 udpegede kommissærer og deres embedsmænd. Så ungefær 3,7 procent af unionsregeringen er dansk. Og så er der parlamentet, der kan ikke lovgive, kun snakke. Danmark vælger kun 13 ud af 736 medlemmer – 1,8 procent. Mere end 80 procent af alle “danske” love er dekreter fra EU. Uanset hvordan man arrangerer valgprocesserne, så er folkestyret væk, så længe unionen ikke er stendød. En forvarstale for fascisme:

Brian Mikkelsen: Vi vil forsøge at blokere for rød politik
af Lasse Marker – 8. oktober 2011
”Hvis den nye regering fx vælger at sætte dagpengeperioden op, så vil vi rulle det tilbage det sekund, vi genvinder magten,” siger Brian Mikkelsen (K) til RÆSON. ”Det er absolut en strategi, som vil gøre det sværere for den nye regering at føre deres politik. Vi vil forsøge at vælte Thorning så hurtigt som muligt. Konkret kan vi lade være med at stemme for den økonomiske politik. Så vil den røde regering få det meget svært, for så skal de lave økonomisk politik med Enhedslisten.”
