LOVING THE MULLAHS.

I had to check if the date was April 1st when I heard the BBC item that our Dear Leader was inviting the Iranians to combat climate change by expanding “peaceful” nuclear energy. Bet the Israelis will really love that! Naturally the paper tiger caveat from Prudence is that there will be (more) strict UN resolutions (the sort that we know don’t work) if the Mullahs do what they are doing anyway and develop nuclear weapons. Truly pathetic stuff from Brown, designed to ingratiate himself with Obama, and all without a second thought for the nation that Iran has clearly within its atomic cross-hairs. Not that the BBC like to talk about that aspect of things. Iran is just a friend we have to meet.

    I wish I could remember my elementary logic, but I do recall once being able to demonstrate that from a false premise, you can prove any old nonsense. Such is the case with CO2 and the climate. How can it be that so many people apparently take it for granted that human generated CO2 has a major impact on climate? There is neither evidence for this, nor a credible mechanism. I find the occasional greenie I encounter gets quite dismayed when I explain that real greenhouses don’t get hot because of differentials in radiative transmittivity of glass. The dismay is not at their starting off a ‘scientific’ case on the wrong foot. No, the dismay is that anyone can presume to challenge the AGW Faith!

    Goebellian repitition. You have to hand it to them though; branding a gas that every living thing produces as a byproduct of respiration as evil is as audacious as it is insane.

    Luckily – due to a decade-long cooling trend and a recession – the wheels are starting to come off the Anthropological Global Warming bandwagon, but it remains to be seen how much irreparable damage the First Church of Environmentologists have done in the time people have been giving credence to their pseudo-scientifc hysteria.

    Good post Robert – that is why the environ-mentalists are getting increasingly apocalyptic. I have lost count of the way that we have been told that we are all going to die in the next few years, but I think we will be variously drowned and parched, roasted and frozen.

    Got to keep those lucrative research grants coming somehow!

    CO2 without a doubt is a greenhouse gas, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas .

    Greenhouses combine radiative differences and lack of convection to warm up. You can construct a modified greenhouse that radiates more than it allows in, and surprise, it doesn’t warm up.

    If you think that F Smith has forgotten more science than I know, then wow, you are pretty awesome too.

    I doubt if Iran has the slightest interest in the climate change debate.
    What Iran has an interest
    in, and is actively pursuing, is becoming the dominant power in the middle east.
    To do that Iran would like and feels it essential to have nuclear weapons.
    When this happens, and it will, all the Western handwringing and moaning will make not one scrap of difference.
    Sometimes I wonder if the whole climate change obsession is not a western way of refusing to face up to the fact that our history is one of the ebb and flow of empires and civilisations.

    Here is some background on greenhouses:
    http://icecap.us/index.php/go/political-climate/greenhouse_theory_disproved_a_century_ago/

    There is no doubt that CO2 radiates in the infra-red, and this can contribute to increased local surface heating in the absence of cloud cover. But it has a very minor role in the big picture, and certainly nothing to get alarmed about.

    No-one says CO2 is not a greenhouse gas.

    But many say it is insignificant compared with other greenhouse gases.

    And others say that IF the earth was getting warmer – which the FACTS say is not the case – the oceans as a natural effect would absorb more CO2.

    The point of all this is BBC bias. They trumpet the MMGW stuff, they refuse to report properly on the counter-arguments.

    And their reporters are bloody amateurs !

    Robert:

    I can’t imagine many B-BBC commenters watch BBC1 on a Saturday morning, but for reasons I’ll not go into I found myself last Saturday morning watching a cookery show presented by a young bloke from Yorkshire. His guest was the noted Lefty Thesp Pete Postlethwaite who’s in an acclaimed prodution of “Lear” at the moment. One coluld understand why he’s so well-regarded as an actor after he went into a hugely impressive rant about how AGW is killing the planet, all doomed, sky falling etc etc. He didn’t go in for any science, just gave it the old-style preacher number. Most impressive, however delusional.

    I think that, now the Beeb is plugging AGW on daytime TV, the warmists must be getting truly desperate. It’s not enough to have Toady and the 9 o’clock News – the new religion has to be observed on weekend telly too.

    I dismay when lefties spout the ‘I know as I read it on the internet’.

    It seems that the left can’t apply any logic to their own debate.

    The very idea that we can FREEZE the climate so it never changes is just idiotic. We can’t stop the tides and we can’t stop climate change.

    Even cutting all human produced CO2 (and that would mean killing every human being) the planet would still pump billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere and the climate would still change.

    What caused climate change BEFORE humans appeared on the Earth? Dinosaur farts?

    But back to BBC bias.

    I thought Naughtie expressed an appropriate amount of skepticism over whether or not the Iranians would agree to the plan. He also allowed Hutton to say that Iran was a destabilizing force and a nuclear Iran would be a bad idea without bringing up Israel’s nasty nukes or how much trouble Israel causes in the region. Small miracles, anyway.

    Hutton sounded really nervous and weak, though, almost as if he was afraid of what he was saying. Weird.

    I have never been able to work out why the BBC pushes the anthropogenic global warming agenda with such enthusiasm. The whole idea collapses the moment any real scientific rigour is applied to it, but still the Beeboids shovel it with merry abandon.

    It is nearly as unfathomable to me as their unerring support for a certain middle eastern religio-political ideology which, if it ever elevated itself to a position of power, would put a fair proportion of those working in the organisation to the sword.

    There must be an answer somewhere, but it eludes me.

    Unless of course they are all just clueless arseholes.

    Preposteroso is a founder member of the organisation known as WOW (War on Warmers). On behalf of this organisation, Preposteroso has now completed a study that conclusively proves what many have suspected for quite some time: the climate of the planet is controlled by the sun. The study involved sitting outdoors for an hour on a warm day and looking upwards.

    Meanwhile, like the work of the recent Conference on Climate Change in New York, the work of WOW goes mostly unreported by the BBC that feeds all too well from the warming trough to ever pull out its snout.

    I used to come on to this site to see how the war for the abolition of the BBC was progressing. Although there are many people who are very aware of the impact that the BBC has on the conscience of the nation – there will be no uprising of the masses to rid us freedom lovers of its grasp with peaceful methods.

    If anyone had a basic grasp of the techniques used in mind control on an NLP level alone – they would decide to deregulate the media.

    Trillions of pounds have been spent over decades to influence people to purchase goods.

    Why do reasonable people believe that the BBC is a benign entity that serves our interests?

    Atlas Shrugged is right.

    The BBC can never be reformed.

    cutting it back and installing a conservative alternative is pointless.

    Friggin’ Climate change! Every morning for the last decade or so I rise from my bed and look out my bedroom window. Am I ever greeted by the sights and sounds of tropical havens, as seen on numerous travel shows? Or that bloke David whatsisface crawling through the undergrowth hoping to film some exotic tropical creature? Am i heck. All I see is the same dark, dank, cold friggin’ climate i’ve been brought up with. Maybe I’m thinking of that bandwaggon those acronym named organisations used to spout of about, oh yeah global warming, and before that it was global cooling, and before that I don’t think anybody really gave a toss, if they wanted to know the weather conditions where they where they simply looked outside.
    As for inviting Iran, Why not, surely having them contemplate climate change is preferable to their contemplating inflicting genocide on the Israelies. By the way my frind Chicken-Licken just ‘phoned, and she reckons the only thing to do in respect of climate change and our children is that we teach the little buggers to swim………

    I can hope you are being sarcastic or that you watch or listen to so little BBC that much of the discussion on this blog goes right over your head.

    Vanunu and the Bomb Be careful with this information it descends to the BBC basement for inference, bias and credibility.

    Given that Israel refuses to either confirm or deny it has nukes and has never threatened anyone with the use of them information is speculative but a quick google finds 219 references to Israel’s nukes on the BBC site. One of them may help you.

    The BBC is hardly silent on Israel’s potentially “vast” nuclear arsenal:

    Israel ‘has 150 nuclear weapons’

    Paul Reynolds mentions Carter’s claim when discussing Iran’s nuclear weapons potential.

    In December the BBC reported on the grandstanding but toothless “Global Zero” conference, and ended the entire piece reminding everyone of Israel’s nasty secrecy on their own nuclear capability.

    A simple search will prove one-note wonders like ady wrong every time. The thing is, people like him don’t just want the BBC to tell everyone about what Israel gets up to; they’ll continue to think the BBC is blatantly pro-Israel unless Mark Thompson issues a memo calling for every BBC News anchor to condemn Israel on air, and give priority to those calling for its dissolution. Only then will the BBC be able to cleanse itself and prove that it isn’t pro-Israel.
