Revelations May Render Cameron’s Avatar Message Irrelevant

January 3, 2010

Blustery winter winds have been dampening the hot air about global warming for a few years now. So much for the “dying world” that Cameron’s earthlings come from!

With more blizzards and more bad news this month for climate change fear-mongers about how the earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have not risen in the last 160 years, James Cameron’s newest $200 million opium opus magnum, released in theatres this month as well, seems to ring somewhat hollow.  ‘Avatar’ was billed as this generation’s Star Wars, and a culture and societal altering piece that would be unmatched this decade.  Cameron himself said that:

“We’re going to blow you to the back wall of the theatre in a way you haven’t seen for a long time. My goal is to rekindle those amazing mystical moments my generation felt when we first saw 2001: A Space Odyssey or the next generation’s Star Wars. It took me 10 years to find something hard enough to be interesting.”

Ten years ago a movie which had a message about how humanity is destroying the earth, American industry is evil and how we could learn a thing or two from people living in dung huts might have made a little more sense.  Heck, two or three years ago that might have been the case.  But, in 2009, Al Gore has been exposed as a fraud, Climategate has revealed the truth about climate change alarmists, scientific evidence is mounting in favor of man-made climate change skeptics, and the world is still embroiled amid a deep recession. A little late to the game, Jim? Read the rest of this entry »

Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark

December 18, 2009

The most courageous of the world’s elite from 193 countries hop private jets and catch limousines to gather this week in Copenhagen to brave the blustery cold and the driving snow which has blanketed northern Europe in recent days, in order to mount a last ditch effort to save the world from the perilous consequences of man-made global warming. Though it may be too late according to eminent scientists such as Al Gore, these environmental martyrs will have to pack an extra pair of long johns because temperatures in Copenhagen have dipped to four degrees below zero this week and Denmark is set to receive its first white Christmas in 14 years.  This, on the coat tails of the coldest year globally in a decade.

I do believe I have solved the problem of global warming. Al Gore and Kirby team up to take on CO2.

If something doesn’t seem right with the world’s nare do wells debating the merits of confiscatory global taxes and punitively siphoning the wealth of industrialized nations to give it to “developing” financial superpowers like India and China to combat climate change, that is because it isn’t. God has a sense of humor though, as it seems every time Al Gore heads to Washington D.C., Copenhagen or some other large climate summit, record low temperatures, blizzards and snow delays are sure to ensue. The Copenhagen Climate Council’s Manifesto (hmm) clearly states:

The story of the link between human
activities, observed global warming, likely future
warming, and the climate effects of this warming, is
becoming ever clearer: our Earth is now heating dangerously.
That the primary cause is human-generated
air pollution is beyond reasonable scientific doubt.

Better Off Today Than Tomorrow Under Barack Obama

June 22, 2009

In November of 2008, Americans in record numbers voted for dubious terms such as “hope” and “change.” In doing so, we’re told, those who elected Barack Obama as the 43rd president of the United States (Grover Cleveland served twice—should we really count that as two?) declared eight years under George W. Bush an utter failure. But was it? What if we were to ask ourselves that infamous question from the Ghost of Elections Past: “Am I better off today than I was eight years ago?”

When Bill Clinton took the walk of shame in 2001, most Americans didn’t have a cell phone. Today, not only does every family have one, but nearly every grade schooler has a cellular appendage, and our mobile phones are now used to browse the Internet, play movies, and for your teen to send risqué pictures of his girlfriend to the entire senior class. When the dust had finally settled from Al Gore’s post-recount Ben & Jerry’s binge, most Americans’ web access consisted of a shrieking dial tone connecting them to something called Geocities.com or Yahoo.com. Today, we connect wirelessly to Google, Facebook, Youtube, and we twit at an alarming rate. Read the rest of this entry »
