Preston Manning – a traitor to his former conservative self

Posted November 21, 2014 by JR

It would be interesting to know what has caused Preston’s about face on conservative principles he so clearly championed as Reform leader. Advocating the use of weasel words to dupe the public into accepting a carbon tax does not sound like the Prest…

More BS about polar bears

Posted November 19, 2014 by JR

This week the media have been dutifully spreading more alarmist misinformation about declining polar bear numbers.  WUWT, via a Canadian expert,  supplies the true story:

Dr Susan Crockford, a Canadian zoologist and professor with more than 35 years experience, has been highly critical of these stories, claiming that they are misleading the public.

Responding to the claims in the media, Dr Crockford said:

“The main story of this study is the remarkable recovery of the polar bear population by 2010 which has likely continued since then. To suggest that polar bear populations have been declining is hugely misleading.
“The authors have also acknowledged that the cause of the 2004-2006 decline was heavy spring ice conditions. They found no correlation for the decline with summer sea ice conditions.”

 Would it be too much to ask the so-called “professional” journalists of the mainstream media to do some basic fact checking before reporting these stories?  Probably, they’re more interested in promoting climate alarmism than in science.

Australia is reminded that with friends like Obama, who needs enemies?

Posted November 19, 2014 by JR

In that speech of Obama’s at the University of Queensland, Aussie Greg Sheridan, writing in the Wall Street Journal, notes a mystifying attack on Australia:

President Obama over the weekend made a bizarre decision to attack and damage his closest ally in Asia, and one of the most committed supporters of U.S. foreign policy.

…. the longest passage was an extraordinary riff on climate change that contained astonishing criticism—implied, but unmistakable—of the government led by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

… As some congressional Democrats recently learned, the only thing fraught with more danger than being Mr. Obama’s enemy is being his friend.

Obama, ever the traitor to the West, puts his radical leftist ideology and what he thinks is good for his legacy ahead of everything.  As Israel learned long ago, he’s intensely divisive not only at home, but abroad as well.  The man’s a menace.  For the good of the entire civilized world, 2016 can’t come too soon.

How Canada gains from Obama’s loss

Posted November 6, 2014 by JR

Lawrence Solomon counts the ways:

Number One on the Obama Can’t-Do list involves carbon taxes or other global warming measures that could set back Canada’s economy … a prescient Prime Minister Harper tied Canada’s global warming policies to those of the United States. … Harper — thought to be a closet climate skeptic — took a calculated risk that paid off in spades. …

Number Two on the Obama Can’t-Do List is trade protectionism, a favourite among many Democrats including Obama …

Number Three: Canada can also breathe a big sigh of relief that free spending Democrats are now reined in. …Obama’s exploding of the national debt — by the time he’s done, it may have doubled to $20-trillion

Pundits are betting that Obama will finally approve Keystone … But the pundits could be wrong. Obama has betrayed most of his constituents through broken promises … But even chucking Keystone could now be too late for Obama. He has become such a liability to his party that few Democratic politicians have a strong allegiance to him …

The UN IPCC’s synthetic climate alarmism

Posted November 4, 2014 by JR

Peter Foster: Dedicated to promoting synthetic climate alarmism

 The latest synthesis report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – the “capstone” of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report — contains no surprises

However, it is intriguing for … the identity of the man to whom it is dedicated — the late Stephen Schneider, a Stanford professor and proponent of bending science in pursuit of a “better world.”  … famous for his recommendation in 1989 that in order to get “loads of media coverage,” scientists had to “offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have.” … For the IPCC to honour him tells us a great deal about its own orientation which, fortunately, is becoming less relevant by the day.

Also,

It is filled with what eminent Canadian mathematician Christopher Essex has called “hilarious bamboozling parascientific probability language.

The “new” UN report has driven local and national media climate alarmism for going on a week now –  exactly what Prof Schneider advocated and the IPCC sought.  So, by dedicating it to Schneider maybe the IPCC was, in its own weird, sneaky way, being honest for a change.
