That would be the Church of Climatology, and its high priests ARE the government. Despite having a really crappy record of prognostication, the climate doomsayers still insist we’re doomed (my bold emphasis in the quoted section) if we don’t pay Mother Gaia tribute by destroying our economy and returning to the 18th century.

Twitter was full of love for Algore and his
global warming climate change BS yesterday – awesome.
Someone needs to tell @algore that shoveling the global warming off my driveway tonight would be a great fat burning plan for him.

Hope that piece of shit Al Gore stops by today. With a shovel.

Where’s Al Gore? I need a bunch of hot air about global warming. It’s freezing, and I live in TX!

Gore sold his Current TV network to Al Jazeera just before the end of the year. The staff’s first meeting with their new owners didn’t leave them feeling very good about the whole thing:

Another entry in the eco-bullsh*t files. Algore must be beside himself.
Computer models have been indicating, for at least 20 years, that the ice shelves in Antarctica are losing mass faster than they are gaining it. That is, they’re melting – and presumably from “global warming.” Scientists from the Norwegian Polar Institute have conducted studies that disprove these models, and show that overall the polar ice is maintaining a “steady state”.

In fact, the issue comes in dead last in a list of policy priorities for 2012. This, according to a Pew poll (pdf):

Awesome. In the comments for 100 watt incandescent bulbs at Amazon, there’s this:

Eco-Bullsh*t Ad Absurdum: Ugandans Expelled from Their Land so Multinational Corporations Can Grow Carbon Credits
By marfdrat on September 23, 2011
The international aid group Oxfam is reporting that thousands of Ugandans are being forced off their land by the government:
In one case, at least 22,500 people in Uganda lost their homes and land to make way for a British timber company, the New Forests Company (NFC). Villagers told Oxfam that some evictions resulted in physical violence, and destruction of property, crops and livestock. Many have been left destitute, without enough food or money to send their children to school. They have received no compensation or alternative land. NFC denies that it was responsible for any evictions. What’s more, NFC is supported by investment from international institutions which claim to uphold high social and environmental standards, including the World Bank and the European Investment Bank. In addition, HSBC, which prides itself as a responsible bank, owns 20% of NFC and has one of six seats on the NFC Board.

Yes, it’s funny. From The Week:
As negotiators from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun to strategize ways to keep the planet from getting hotter, the temperature in the seaside Mexican city plunged to a 100-year record low of 54° F. Climate-change skeptics are gleefully calling Cancun’s weather the latest example of the “Gore Effect” — a plunge in temperature they say occurs wherever former Vice President Al Gore, now a Nobel Prize-winning environmental activist, makes a speech about the climate. Although Gore is not scheduled to speak in Cancun, “it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival,” jokes former NASA scientist Roy W. Spencer.

Dr. Zero uses this analogy to describe doing businesses in today’s environment of unpredictable federal intrusion, confiscation and oversight. The government is the great white shark, roaming the business seas, seeking whom he might devour. Businesses play attach themselves, like remora fish, and hope for all

Maureen Dowd has an editorial in the New York Times today in which she rightly criticizes Obama for an $800,000 re-do of the Oval Office (which was kind of off-topic, and warrants a whole separate post, but I digress), but manages to throw some insults at the Tea Party movement in the process. She also demonstrates that the whiny libs still can’t get Bush v. Gore out of their psyche:
