Another Climategate on the rise…

To no surprise to anyone with half a brain, NASA is now also accused of fixing the numbers and doing the fearmongering-dance to gain more founding.

Maybe there’s a small glimmer of hope after all…

The most influential tree in the world

Oh, I actually missed this part of the hoax. Oh my…

Old media is refusing to write and talk about what has to be one of the biggest scandals of all time, but some do it, kudos to those real journalists.

I suggest you all go and read this excellent article from The Telegraph.

A taste:

At the forefront of those who found suspicious the graphs based on tree rings from the Yamal peninsula in Siberia was McIntyre himself, not least because for years the CRU refused to disclose the data used to construct them. This breached a basic rule of scientific procedure. But last summer the Royal Society insisted on the rule being obeyed, and two months ago Briffa accordingly published on his website some of the data McIntyre had been after.

This was startling enough, as McIntyre demonstrated in an explosive series of posts on his Climate Audit blog, because it showed that the CRU studies were based on cherry-picking hundreds of Siberian samples only to leave those that showed the picture that was wanted. Other studies based on similar data had clearly shown the Medieval Warm Period as hotter than today. Indeed only the evidence from one tree, YADO61, seemed to show a "hockey stick" pattern, and it was this, in light of the extraordinary reverence given to the CRU's studies, which led McIntyre to dub it "the most influential tree in the world

Imagine There's No Global Warming

This is just great...

And if you didn’t know it, there’s no proof for manmade global warming, not a single one. Don’t let the elitists fool ya, it’s all about tricking you to pay more taxes and impose more control over our lives.

The way we fight

Whoever you are, you will have problems. Rich as well as poor, old, young, male, female, black or white, we all have problems and we all suffer. Do you know why? It’s a part of life, just the way things are and there’s no escaping it.

If you’re sitting in a classroom or working on the floor or walking down the street, people around you will have experienced horrific things in their lives, with no exception. People get raped, mugged, robbed, get run over by cars or suffer illnesses. People get cancer, they die in wars, and they stumbled down stairs or fall down in the shower. And if it doesn’t happen to you directly, it will happen to people around you. We all have relatives that has died, gotten paraplegic, have been raped or whatever. Alcoholics, drug-addicts and different sorts of criminals are all around us.

And as if death, sickness and horrible things happening to those we love weren’t enough, there are also lots of other things like unemployment, not getting laid or socks that don’t match.

But maybe worse of all is that so few of us have anyone that cares about our pain. Is it then any wonder that we so lightly give up our freedoms and supremacy to anyone promising to ease our pain?

Sadly most people don’t realize that the reason for every single person out there ignoring your pain is because they're too busy with their own. You may think the rich and powerful don’t have problems, but they do. Sure, their lives are easier to a certain degree, but not without facing death, misery or pain. That we all do.
Our mortality and quest for painkillers is one main reason for why the world looks like it does. That easy fix is always preferred before any rational decision. Consequently people rather vote for the one promising to hand out fixes than for the one saying that people need to come to grasp with their own inaptness. We cannot stand pain or misfortune hence we want it to go away.

In this way of thinking we also get the imaginary adversary, the ones that are in our way or causing the pain. Unemployment can always be blamed on immigrants instead of blaming our own lack of abilities. Sickness can be spread by government; big corporations can steal our wealth, Muslims have deteriorated our ethics, Jews are behind everything bad in the world, and so on and so on.

I accept as true that in this concept we can find the reason why we rely on certain beliefs. And I’m not only taking religiosity i.e. looking for that eternal life of joy and happiness, no, I would also argue that our political and moral beliefs are rooted in how we relate to ourselves, our pain and our mortality. If you think the pain is too much and feel that someone needs to come to the rescue, it’s easier to buy into a totalitarian view-point. If the same person thinks that it’s a human right to get help and have a very selfish way of living, then that person will automatically become a communist, a fascist or jump into some nutty cult. If, however, you accept that you’re going to die and know that people aren’t perfect in any way, it’s easier for you to become a lover of personal choice, because if people aren’t perfect and if we are going to die it becomes an imperative that people chose their own path.

The first form of person mentioned above having a hard time coping with hurt and misery is very easy to dupe. All the elitists really need to do is to advertise emotional concepts and so to no surprise all authoritarian advocates have “We are going to give you stuff”- arguments. Are you unemployed? We’ll fix that. Having problems paying your bills? Not a problem, vote for us, we’ll give you more money. Getting old? Ah, we want you to have a higher pension. In this lays one part of that totalitarian agenda so many of you want and vote for.

The other part is purely emotional and not necessarily aimed straight for you. I’m talking about the pity-argument. This works by playing on the same strings, but in more general terms and is never accompanied with the actual cost or alternative. Only the righteous view and solution is valid. People are starving in a foreign land? Then we all need to help out and send lots of aid. Is gender representation not 50/50? Then we need to pass a law to conjure up equality. Are there pedophiles out there? Won’t someone please think of the children! Hence all adults need to be a suspect, guilty before proven otherwise. In essence this means we fight against us, ignoring reality, ignoring our long-term prosperity, ignoring rational thinking. And most of the sheople don’t want to see this, hardly anyone wants to look in the mirror and see a mortal person suffering from life’s mistakes and so we are lying to ourselves to cover up this scary image.

The true believers in mankind and freedom have this arduous task to cope with - to transform unbelievers and scared sheople into self-respecting humanists. I believe this is an obstacle that cannot be conquered. Just take a look at the Swine-flu scare. There’re thousands of things more dangerous, but for some reason a very harmless flu have got people rattled.

I find it kind of sad how most of you chose to wage war on yourselves or against your neighbor, but it is also funny in a tragic-comical sort of a way. And since I don’t believe in the idea of convincing lunatics how reality works, I rather point out inadequacies and the moronic behavior that is normal for most of you. Won’t win any popularity contests, but I will have fun.
