Boston Booze Party

Burning holes at the top of the world since 2002.

Article content

Article copy

Numbers, numbers: in what might well be a sign of the close coming of the end of times, Jules Crittenden's first blog anniversary is just a couple of days away from my fifth, which is today.

Seeing that we're physically several thousands miles away however, the getting-drunk-together-at-the-closest-titty-bar has to be postponed. Indefinitely. Life sucks, and then you die.

Talking about dying and of how many years, it seems that all the entertainment we'll get to celebrate our blogs' birthdays is provided by Al Gore the Witchdoctor rather than some anonymous yet lascivious pole dancer. No glittering thong and high-heels -- and therefore not the same effect on our respective tender gender fiber, but still: what a boob.

He's mixing a bit his numbers, and just listening to him it's a bit hard to figure out when exactly the World Is Coming to an End: sometimes he gives us less than 23 years, sometimes as little as 34(1).

I hope you enjoy the stunt though. Relax, and don't forget what Al Gore the Witchdoctor is carefully not telling you. Non exhaustively: that his computer models are regularly proven wrong, that we're coming out of a little Ice Age (which tends to explain why it is a bit warmer than it used to be), that even if the Arctic ice is melting, the Antarctic is getting colder (meaning that global warming is not even global), that CO2 is a consequence, not a cause of warming, that if some glaciers are melting, others right next to them are advancing, and that compared to the 1930s and 1000 AD, it's actually getting rather cold these days.

Again, that's just a tiny sample of the long list of inconvenient facts the Nobel Prize witchdoctor is conveniently leaving aside.

Al Gore is playing on stupid or uneducated people's irrational fears, a game of power and control that's as old as the first stone age shaman who realized that rather than risking to hurt and tire hunting dangerous animals with the men of the tribe, or breaking his back gathering dull roots and boring veggies with the women, he could make out imaginary dangers, foretell unforeseen consequences (floods, storms, droughts, etc) for the tribe's most basic actions, lay the guilt on each of its members -- and explain that he can help out, if only the people accept to provide him with a good share of venison. Plus a bit of salad, carrots and potatoes on the side. One needs fibers for a healthy diet.

The only thing that changed is that you are more likely to be far less stupid, and a lot more educated than the average stone age tribesman.

So don't let the Witchdoctor fool you. Global warming is normal warming.

Note: If you're reading this through the RSS feed, you're not receiving the man-made global warming denier terrorist mime video alert. Shame that.

Hahahahahahah!!!!! I love it! The Goreacle is SO gonna issue a Fatwa on you. But you forgot, we are all already dead. Ted Danson 3rd rate actor and Global Warm Expert said the seas were going to polluted and we would all die, in 1988. So I guess we is all deaded! Boohoo.

 

Have you seen the groundbreaking Global Warming coverage on NBCs Today Show? Matt lauer was standing on the Arctic Circle, and it is so warm his breath did not fog when he spoke, standing out of doors, on the Arctic Circle, in November. Wow. Just, wow.

Great Dissident!

Congratulations for the 5th anniversary of one of the greatest blogs on Earth! I hope you’ll carry on the good work - at least for the next 23 or 34 or 45 or 54 years (only Gore knows it).

Your biggest fan in Brazil,

DF:

We are not alone in our skepticism.  I sent you an email with links to other like minded critics of the warmies.  The BBC, CBC and the President of the Czech Republic are with us.  My favorite is Joe LaGuardi, the guy from Boston.  (When you watch his video, avoid drinking liquids or risk their projectile nasal ejection.) 

UK Ch4 Program About Global Warming  British Skeptics

The Guy from Boston - Global Warming ("Mature" Language but hilarious)

Economist Bjorn Lomborg: Global warming is not a priority  Nice to do, but at what cost?

My problem with the whole idea is that they refuse to engage in serious technical debate ignoring the following:

1. For the last 1,600,000,000 years, ice ages (glacials) have occerred about every 100,000 years.  Acentury ago, a Serbian civil engineer theorized that glacials are astrophysical - caused by changes in the Earth’s orbit.  See "Milankovich Cycles."

2. The preeminent climatologist in the United States is Dr. Reid Bryson of the U of Wisconcin.  He says that water vapor is the most important green house gas.  When asked to assess the impact of CO2, he says that H2O causes 80% of greenhouse effect takes place in the first 30 feet above the surface.  CO2 causes about 0.08%, so water vapor is 1000 times as important.  "If you go out and spit in your front yard, you have had more effect than doubling CO2. See the "Faithful Heretic."

3.  According to NASA, 168 Billion metric tons of CO2 is added to the world’s atmosphere annually.  100 B come from the oceans, releasing CO2 as they warm. (A result of warming, not a cause.) 30 B come from animal respiration - breathing.  30 B come from decaying plant and animal matter.  Man only adds 8 B including 6 B from burning fossil fuels.  So, if we were to cease all use of use of petroleum, natural gas and coal, push the world’s standard of living back to the 8th Century, the total CO2 would decrease from 168 B to 162 B metric tons. 

4.  Great experiment melting ice.  Archimedes would be proud of you.  If the ice caps and ice bergs melt, what would happen to sea level? Nothing.

Having only been a partaker of your blog for a relatively short time - I forget, 2 or 3 or 6 or 4 months - I want to wish you a very Merry Blogaversary, DF.

I notice, whenever I force my eyes to focus on the Algore, that his suit looks tighter each time I see him.  If he does survive to meet and surpass any of his deadlines for doom, I’m certain he will accept credit for having steered the earth away from disaster.  Maybe the polar caps are melting because his bulk is upsetting the earths rotation as he travels around in his JET!

Thanks DF!  It’s fun.

Happy Anniversary, froggy.  I certainly have enjoyed reading your blog for the past few months and am looking forward to many more months and months.  You always make me smile while I nod my head in agreement. (and my french is improving!)

Cobaltberet, I read your comment on the Great Hero Algore. I’ll have you know that the Great Hero Algore is at great cost to himself undergoing a process of CO2 sequestration that will greatly benefit the nation and the world. And I have it on good authority that when he dies he will have himself mummified so that the CO2 can’t get back into the atmosphere thus saving the proletariat from a fate worse than Venus. There are some things that shouldn’t be allowed to decay!

DF,

 

OUTSTANDING!!!  I laughed the entire time I was watching that video.  I especially love the "Democraptic" Math…gone in 23 years, or as little as 34.  Almost like saying….it’s not a new tax, just a "fee" that you have pay so everybody else can enjoy what you worked so hard to earn for yourself.  Gotta love those "Dims".  Without them, what fun would we have?

Congrats on 5 years, and keep up the great work!

I wish my high school French was in better shape so I could thank you properly for the wonderful humor and commentary.  What does it say about the masses when they buy what slimy hucksters like the Goreacle are selling.  Sacre bleu!

Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary!

And many more we all hope for your blogging and miming!

Here’s another tidbit.  Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro are the two farthest points on the planet Earth that can be still seen from each other.   Both are 19,000 feet +, and both are free-standing mountains (no range) at the equator.  BOTH have glaciers at the summits.

ONLY Kilimanjaro’s glacier is mentioned by AL Gore.  Mt. Kenya’s glacier is NEVER mentioned.  WIth the nearly identical circumstances, one glacier is photographed as shrinking - blamed on global warming.  SO if that was the case, it should be that same for Mt. Kenya, but  Mt. Kenya’s glacier has no minimal change. 

1) Both glaciers are frozen at a steady rate of about -3 degrees FARENHEIT.  (it’s the equator - no winter spring summer or fall there) That’s about 35 degrees BELOW freezing temperature.  Melting does not occur at those altitudes (19,000 feet- roughly 6,000 meters ) or at those temperatures.  Due to the height and thin atmosphere, it could warm at sea level and still have no effect on the temps at 19,000 feet.  Therefore, any statement that there is MELTING at the summit of Kilimanjaro is FALSE, and relies totally on the ignorance of the listener.

2) The area around KIlimanjaro has been in drought conditions for over a decade.  The snow accumulation is less thanks to lack of precipitation.  Mt. Kenya has better annual rains.  The glacier on Mt. Kilimanjaro can lose mass only through sublimation into the cold, dry air. 

3) AL Gore’s career has been in politics.  He has no education in science of any kind, and did piss poor, flunking level work in the education he did receive, exactly what still remains unclear.  Then logically,  rationally, when he speaks about "environmental" issues, then he always speaks politically, not scientifically. 

Outstanding article with actual, real, proper scientific data at The American Scientist - The Snows of KIlimanjaro.

Happy 5th Anniversary DF! Love the new video very much!

PS Does anyone else have this problem and know how to solve it….When I read a topic, then the comments and decide I want to add a comment myself, I have to go through the whole process twice before it allows me to type? IOW, click on topic title, comments, post - add a comment, then all those things again? Why won’t it let me type the first time I go through all the clicking process?  Maybe I should click Home first? Or maybe I do that already, I don’t know anymore my brain’s shot.

DF,

Love the video. I just have one thing to say:

 

Scotty! I need more power to my hair dryer!

I can’t do it Captain, the warp coils don’t have an outlet, and even if they did, Al Gore stole the dilithium crystals! He said they gave off to much CO2!

But Scotty, we’re in space!

I know that Captain, and you know it too, but, if you gave him one brain cell, it would be the first time in his life he ever had two to rub together!

Ever notice that the more lethal someone is, the more polite they tend to be?

Something else to warm our hearts regarding The Goracle will be the upcoming Nobel Peace prize concert, which will be held in honor of the the windbag next month on the 11th, the day after the prize is "officially" awarded.  He’s also being considered as a possibility for Time’s "Person of the Year" cover.

While this year has indeed been one "win" after another for Gore, I take heart in the fact that he still doesn’t have the one thing he’s craved ever since he began his political career: the presidency.

Hmmm.   Have you tried an ionic hair dryer? It works wonders on drying hair quickly, so maybe it’ll work just as well on ice cubes, too  ;)

To DF: Please check your PM’s when you get a second, will ya busy guy? :)

Cobaltberet, ah, you begin to discern, but the corduroy does help. ;)

 

Now can somebody tell me what the heck is wrong with Glowball Warming? With perpetual summer Algore wouldn’t have to wear all of those corduroy suits… well maybe he could cut it down to one at a time. His carbon footprint would definitely be smaller and so would any other prints that he left anywhere. I’m clueless…(well, let’s not get into that).

Grimmy, Good find! This is what the US soldier is, hardheaded,stubborn,dedicated, hardheaded, (did I say hardheaded already?)resolute. I just helped send off 3 re-enlistees at the beginning of November, 2 truckdrivers and a POL specialist. Troops who are routinely targeted by enemy action. And to top it off they all have requested to return to 10th MountainDiv for redeploy at soonest. Just as Spc Hoyt said, they see the job not finished, and figure they are the best qualified to bring it to completion. BooYaa, indeed!!

Seeing as how this is the "new age" with the One Big Team and all, I really should learn to reform my ways, but, unfortunatly, I’m still a parocial when it comes to service lingo. I know the Army lingo and what it’s supposed to sound like, but when motivation makes its way out of my yap from all the way down in the gut, it will always come out formed in the UUHRAA way.

No offense intended.

PS. Everyone: Stand To and Stand Ready. The enemy within is beginning to publish much mis and disinformation concerning our troops. Conflations and irrationalizations about suicides, mental health issues, desertion rates, etc etc. Don’t let the idjits wear you down.
