Article content

I'm on the mailing-list of the International Herald Tribune (that Eurolefty spawn of the New York Times) not for its informative value but because it's a target rich environment, and an endless source of amusement.

Consider this:
Paris, Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Report calls on Europe to move on warming. Europe must start work now to protect power stations, transport systems and agriculture from flooding, droughts, forest fires and landslides likely to be caused by global warming (…).
Flooding, droughts(1), forest fires, landslides and, let's see… Famine, flies, rivers of blood, lice, frogs(2), evil spirits, invisible dragons devouring the Sun, and possibly zombie attacks and Socialist infestations(3) — which will certainly require a fair bit of human sacrifices(4).

The global warming scare business is now beyond ridiculous. The Europeans, those allegedly "advanced" and "sophisticated" people who supposedly freed themselves from "religious obscurantism" (unlike them boorish Americans) are now behaving like primitive Incas shitting their loincloths at the sight of a solar eclipse.

I have a message for those of my contemporaries who amorously recycle their soybeans wrappings and live in constant fear of the Sun God: you are a living shame and insult to some 3,000 of Western Civilization rationalism and scientific progress. Therefore, if you're really into improving that fallacious concept of ‘carbon footprint', just kill yourself.

Seriously.

I'm telling you, the only thing that still prevent me from relaxing and fully enjoy the lovely weather, is the conviction that we have yet to see the end of this man-made global hysteria.
  1. Well yeah, at the same time. That's the thing with plagues, omens and the Wrath of the Gods.
  2. But don't you blame me.
  3. That one is already happening. I've witnessed it with my own eyes.
  4. Sorry for all the maidens in the audience, but that's for the Greater Good.

Article copy (alternate language)

Je suis sur la mailing-list de l'International Herald Tribune (ce rejeton Eurogauchisant du New York Times), non pas pour ses qualités informatives, mais parce qu'il fournit un environnement riche en cibles et reste une source d'amusement inépuisable.

Considérez ceci :
Paris, mardi 26 Juin 2007
Un rapport appelle l'Europe à agir sur le réchauffement. L'Europe doit commencer dès maintenant à prendre des mesures pour protéger centrales énergétiques, systèmes de transport et agriculture contre les inondations, sécheresses, feux de forêts, et glissements de terrain risquant d'être causé par le réchauffement global (…)
Inondations, sécheresses(1), feux de forêts, glissements de terrains et, voyons un peu… Famines, mouches, rivières de sang, vermines, grenouilles(2), mauvais esprits, dragons invisibles dévorant le Soleil, et peut-être même attaques de zombies et infestations socialistes(3) — qui vont certainement nécessiter bon nombre de sacrifices humains(4).

Le business de la panique au réchauffement global est maintenant passé au-delà du ridicule. Les Européens, ces peuplades soi-disant "avancées" et "sophistiquées" qui se sont libérées de "l'obscurantisme religieux" (contrairement à ces gros lourdauds d'Américains) se comportent désormais comme des Incas primitifs chiant dans leurs pagnes à la vue d'une éclipse solaire.

J'ai un message pour ceux de mes contemporains qui trient amoureusement leurs emballages de soja et vivent dans la crainte constante du Dieu Soleil : vous êtes une honte et un insulte vivante à 3,000 ans de rationalisme et de progrès scientifique de la Civilisation Occidentale. En conséquence, si vous êtes vraiment convaincus de ce fallacieux concept de "réduction de vos émissions de carbone", alors tuez-vous.

Sérieusement.

Je vous le dit, la seule chose qui m'empêche encore de me détendre et de profiter du beau temps, c'est la conviction que nous n'avons pas encore vu la fin de cette hystérie globale anthropique.
  1. Ouais, en même temps. C'est ça le truc avec les plaies, présages et autres Colères des Dieux.
  2. C'est pas moi. J'ai rien fait.
  3. Ca, c'est déjà en train d'arriver. Je l'ai vu, de mes yeux vu.
  4. Désolé pour toutes les vierges dans l'audience, mais c'est pour le Bien Public.

Do you think Barroso is trying to divert attention away from his political views, which are/were mighty unpopular amongst his fellow Europeans? What better way to do so than by using the "Global Warming" scare tactic - works every time...

Here, boy! Here... see the stick? Go get the stick! Good boy!

Gina: interesting theory - though I'd actually find it rather reassuring to think that this is just a cynical political move. Unfortunately, we're talking about European politicos here.

Yeah, well... Tag me cynical too.

KL: welcome, make yourself at home. All declarations of love from armed and fair maidens have the same effect as far as restoring my own faith in (wo)mankind is concerned.

Thanks for the link — no matter how horrible the crime and infuriating the causes.

Get your coldweather gear and supplies updated. As I have now stated for the record on blogs from 3 continents we can expect 3 of the harshest winters in recent record during the next 5 years. At least in the northern hemisphere.

All poopoo aside, these facilities should already be prepared for all these events, plus fire&brimstone. That is just plain proper prior planning, which, in fact, prevents piss poor performance. I mean, who the hell is running these operations? The Marx Brothers?

Mike:

Thanks for the reference to that article.

I am extremely skeptical of the theory of Global Warming - the operative word here being "theory", which many people tend to ignore or block out. Just my opinion, but I feel that the term "Global Warming" is (so far) just another buzz word used by some for their own agenda. I know, I know... I'm stating the obvious here, but there are so many well-meaning yet seriously stupid people in power that will swallow this BS and waste their time and efforts to the detrement of other real issues.

Seriously, tho - I appreciate any documentation that may help to separate fact from fiction and the theoretical to the proven.

This has to be one of your best blog entries ever! I love it, my only regret is that I didn't write it myself :)

Suzie: Muchas gracias (oh, right. The immigration bill didn't make it...)

Gina: look no further than the PIG! Just do like the frogman: when in doubt, I consult the PIG.

the PIG to "Islam and the Crusades"

the PIG to "American History",

the PIG to "Capitalism",

and of course, the PIG to "Global Warming (and Environmentalism)"

Trust me and just get it. Pig in a poke.

Thanks for the recommendations, DF. I think I'll start with The PIG to Islam.

Just as an after-thought - have you considered adding a section to your site for suggested reading and/or book review? Might be nice to have a book/periodical listing all in one place.
