There is really only one “race”, the human race

January 3, 2014

Came across this article. The title is, “Early skirmishes in race war”, by Thomas Sowell:
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/362030/early-skirmishes-race-war-thomas-sowell#!

For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to the verdict in the O. J. Simpson murder case, the “rape” charges against Duke University students, and the trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.

Thomas Sowell, listed four famous incidents that were covered intensely over a long period of time over the last couple of decades. For what It’s worth, Mr. Sowell is a respected economist, and dark-skinned (aka “black”, “African American”, etc).

Maybe that makes me neither black nor white in those terms.

#1. I thought people should leave well enough alone with the O. J. Simpson trial after he was declared “Not Guilty” by the jury. (A mostly white jury, by the way).

#2. I was very skeptical of the charges against the Duke University students, but mostly thought the media, and the university, treated them with their own prejudice.

#3. I thought the police that beat on Rodney King should have been put in prison. They claimed that the drugs that he admittedly had in his system had made him oblivious to pain, so that they had to keep going in order to subject him. I always thought the video showed there were enough officers there to physically subjugate him and then hog-tie him, bind his legs and arms together and haul him back to the station.

But on all these things, it is hard to see how any of the millions of people not directly associated with the events or even indirectly could be so very certain of themselves, just based on media reporting.

In other recent examples, mostly outside the race issue, in my opinion you can see some telling signs of media attitudes about race and class. Casey Anthony was tried, convicted, hung, tarred and feathered on national news networks long before the trial ever began. My own background is from a poor single-mother family, and lived on literally the “wrong side of the tracks”. It became visible to me that the media reporting mostly manifested the elite upper-class snotty-nosed attitude toward “white trash” (or alternately “trailer trash”).

Even now, you get conflicting media flashbacks to the Anthony trial on both sides of the jury decision. A pox on both sides. Not even the jury knows what really happened, it seems, and that would make a “Not Guilty” decision the right one.

#4. That brings me to the Trayvon Martin case. That one is another example where it pays to pay attention, but it pays a thousand times better if you pay heed to the first whispers of reporting, or search back to them, AND waiting to see the details (finally) come to surface.

Monitoring Climate Change

December 4, 2013

Why is the Controlled Media and Pop Press –and the world’s political class– ignoring the real climate scientists?
http://opinion.financialpost.com/2012/11/29/open-climate-letter-to-un-secretary-general-current-scientific-knowledge-does-not-substantiate-ban-ki-moon-assertions-on-weather-and-climate-say-125-scientists/

Fortunately, many of us are not, and it gives the Ruling Class great conniption fits.

We are just supposed to lay ourselves prostrate and open our necks to them in submission? And they’re surprised that many of us refuse?

Of course the social engineers manipulating the propaganda are not surprised. They’re getting madder by the minute because THE REAL CLIMATE SCIENTISTS ARE GETTING HEARD BY THE REST OF US. They are bypassing the Control Gateways.

That’s why I think it won’t be long until they clamp down on the Internet.

We the undersigned, qualified in climate-related matters, wish to state that current scientific knowledge does not substantiate your assertions.

Europe’s Green Energy Basket Case Is Barack Obama’s Dream | CACA

The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself
.”
– Club of Rome,
premier environmental think-tank,
consultants to the United Nations

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

President of the UN Foundation

Secular creation myths

November 1, 2012
English: Amino Acids

English: Amino Acids (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Some people can’t bring themselves to believe that somebody turned water into wine or that water covered the earth for a few weeks once upon a time, but look at this list of myths they do believe in:

(1) that something came from nothing, the whole universe in fact,

(2) and that it made sure to create itself complete with more than a dozen specific physical constants, fine-tuned to tens of thousands of decimal places to make sure humanity would be able to thrive,

(3) that eager to make more complicated stuff from nothing, this stuff organized itself into nucleotides, which in turn eagerly pushed the left-handed amino acids into a strings composed of about 10 to the 9th nucleotides,

(4) to become the building blocks of DNA and all life,

(5) and of course creating a computer with a design programmed into a digital computer, complete with a machine language, and interpreter systems that carry out the instructions on how to fold more chains of the same stuff into proteins that organize the environment of this system,

(6) and that this turned into a vast array of all kinds of biological units that a-knows where to get its energy, b-has complicated system designs that process that energy, c-reproduces itself, d-many of which seek out other systems similar to itself to exchange design information, and e-repairs itself.

(7) Who also believes that global warming is an immediate danger to the planet because Al Gore‘s beachfront property will be flooded,

(8) That Drake’s equation is some kind of scientific formula,

(9) That even though the sun makes a difference of up to 50 degrees a day in temperature, that they can turn on the furnace and heat up the atmosphere more than the sun can,

(10) and that knowing the difference between men and women is like thinking that the races are different, in spite of the fact that the “races” are a bit of melanin only, and a couple of trivial items, whereas the sexes are an entire chromosome different…

 

 

15 years of global cooling and counting

January 31, 2012

Forget global warming – it’s Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again) | Mail Online:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2093264/Forget-global-warming–Cycle-25-need-worry-NASA-scientists-right-Thames-freezing-again.html

Anybody can see that the sun overwhelms everything men can do in the space of 12 hours! The temperature fluctuates with differences of anywhere from 10 to 20 to 50 degrees in ONE DAY, actually HALF a day, just by whether it’s facing the sun or turned away from the sun!

Of course the sun is the overwhelming influence on the climate!

Heat and carbon dioxide are fantastic for plant growth!

Sixteen very prominent scientists have signed a letter published by the Wall Street Journal demolishing the call for killing the economy with decarbonization in the name of global warming:

Sixteen Concerned Scientists: No Need to Panic About Global Warming – WSJ
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204301404577171531838421366.html

Editor’s Note: The following has been signed by the 16 scientists listed at the end of the article:

A candidate for public office in any contemporary democracy may have to consider what, if anything, to do about “global warming.” Candidates should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true. In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are needed.

In September, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ivar Giaever, a supporter of President Obama in the last election, publicly resigned from the American Physical Society (APS) with a letter that begins: “I did not renew [my membership] because I cannot live with the [APS policy] statement: ‘The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.’ In the APS it is OK to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?”

In spite of a multidecade international campaign to enforce the message that increasing amounts of the “pollutant” carbon dioxide will destroy civilization, large numbers of scientists, many very prominent, share the opinions of Dr. Giaever. And the number of scientific “heretics” is growing with each passing year. The reason is a collection of stubborn scientific facts.

Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 “Climategate” email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.” But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2.

Bully for them. Read the article. A new blow to Orwellian thought-control myths.

Blows against censorship

Free speech and blogger intimidation now.

Like joannenova.com.au said:

Why are they investigating the bloggers on the fraud rather than the fraud itself? – no I don’t use that word very often.

That’s a good question. Whistleblowers blow the lid off the fraud, and the perpetrators are blown by their own words. There are supposed to be laws to protect whistleblowers, but I guess that just depends on who the abusers are, eh?

http://thinkprogress.org/romm/2011/12/15/390674/climategate-uk-police-seize-tallbloke-computers-us-justice-dept-involved/?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed

http://tinyurl.com/d5ooxeo

Oh, and here’s a good one, from joannenova.com.au:

The notification apparently asks them not to make the information public or else… they may terminate their wordpress account.

Now, more than ever, all the people that value their freedom need to stick together. Whistleblowers and radio personalities need blogger back up, big bloggers need small bloggers, every blogger needs commenter and emailer support, with letters to editors and friends. Every link in the chain helps. The establishment need to know that we will not be intimidated, there are many of us, and the more they push, the more we will tell the world.

Amen to that, sister Joanna.

I wonder, did they even have a warrant? If somebody refuses such a request in the absence of a warrant, will that bring an unconstitutional charge of obstructing justice?

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/12/16/complicit-in-climategate-doe-under-fire/

This shows that the AGW religion is not about “saving” the earth, nor is it about “saving” mankind, and since when did these actors care about rising sea levels wiping out beachfront property values? They have their own, “What me worry?” They don’t care about human families’ rights to be left alone, how can they care about polar bears? Really? These are the hustlers that make the money from taxing us to death for Gaia, what do they contribute back? They’ll talk to your organization for how much was that?

Raw climate change data: Now stamped “Classified”, eh?

Just trust us.

Some people say they can’t trust anything at all from a source that got one little datum mixed up, but then when the liars who were exposed in climategate, they were “vindicated”? Yep, it’s a matter of whom you choose to trust.

Somebody else said once, Trust but Verify.

Socialism is theft by dictator or by majority vote and drives AGW

November 10, 2011

“The power to tax and the power to spend = the power to enslave”. It’s a paraphrase from a decision written by Chief Justice John Marshall, in writing the Supreme Court’s decision in McCulloh vs. Maryland, where they said Alexander Hamilton‘s Central Bank was constitutional (one of the earliest unconstitutional decisions). Maryland opposed the Central Bank and so imposed a tax. The Court’s answer was that it was an attack on the supremacy clause, that the federal government had implicit power (there they go again) to empower such a bank, even if it was run by a bunch of private bankers.

They said if Maryland’s claim to power to tax it was the same as the power to destroy it (Marshall’s word).

Pure “democracy” is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. It must be restrained by respect for individual rights.

In these two following sentences is subtly hidden one of the most popular and most wrong ideas about wealth:

Capitalism: Concentration of wealth.
Socialism: Dilution of wealth.

The idea that a majority vote makes confiscation of the fruit of a man’s labor, his “wealth” is okay, is a misguided notion that had me once fooled. It’s an easy delusion.

Confiscation of other people’s wealth, rich or not, is not “democracy”. When one robs his neighbor, it’s theft. The government makes it illegal because it wants to have a monopoly on taking what is yours.

People go along with it because they’ve been indoctrinated into thinking majority vote to rob from the rich is somehow good.

I used to be Leninist gullible idiot myself, duped into buying into the socialist deceit.

This book from Ludwig von Mises lays out the scientific economic analysis of what economics is really all about, what socialism is and why it has led to both dictatorship and economic poverty where it has been done:
http://mises.org/books/socialism/contents.aspx

Capitalism: “An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned and development is proportionate to the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a free market.”

Capitalism doesn’t “concentrate” wealth. One might “accumulate” wealth by investing, but Steve Jobs accumulating wealth did not prevent Bill Gates from accumulating his. George Soros would be a better example of “concentrating wealth”, because he uses his government cronies to game the system where he has trashed currencies for his own benefit, and greased the financial meltdown for his own treasure trove. “Crony capitalism” is not “capitalism”.

But I don’t care so much about capitalism as I do free market principles, wherein everybody is free to engage under the same rules.

Socialism does indeed dilute wealth, it is confiscation without recompense, and destroys the best incentive for wealth creation, that of one’s fruit of his labor, or the fruit of knowing what other people want to sell it to them.

Socialism is a zero sum game where everybody loses except the rulers on top, the “deciders”.

Socialism in the US meets definition of #2 from The American Heritage® Dictionary:

1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.

But in principle the idea that the government (supposedly elected in a fair election or not) takes what it wants and lets you have what’s left, is the socialist idea at its very core, the idea that it owns it whoever has the nominal “title” to it.—

PEER REVIEW, SCIENCE, AND AGW-DRIVEN POVERTY CREATION

Peer review is status quo enforcement. There are (totally non-creationist) alternative theories to origins that don’t get the first look in peer review journals. Genuine alternate energy technologies such as at http://newenergytimes.com/ are blacklisted from peer review journals but basement labs keep plugging at it.

Besides AGW big name Phillip Jones just blew the whistle on it too. At its best ideal, peer review is a status-quo-enforcement mechanism when it comes to basic establishment paradigms. It’s a formalization of Thomas Kuhn‘s concept of old science stamping down dissent.

Richard Muller published his study straight up so it could get lots of eyeballs immediately. Peer review is under criticism in scientific journals, muted since the journals depend on it.

Hey, that’s what I’ve been saying all along, for years and years! And yet so many people are so gullible to swallow the media-hyped and regime-approved stuff packaged with the label “science”, and accept it, and think they’re smart because somebody told them that the big bad oil companies would oppose it, and of course even though you’re supposed to blame big bad oil companies for the scientists calling foul, except don’t say they’re “scientists”.

Big Money Media is made up of the same things too.

Eventually, though the truth comes out for those who want it.

If you kick off the spin, the packaging and the hype, Richard Muller’s study only corroborates what the AGW-dissenter scientists have been saying all along.

Big Money Media has successfully Pavloved even smart people into confusing AGW with GW in their thinking, so much so that Big Money Media’s writers see this as their own corroboration.

And everybody’s ignoring another fact that one genuine climatologist pointed out: Muller’s own data actually shows that global warming has stopped cold for a decade, and counting.

No wonder Phil Jones was so terrified of what might happen to him

Understanding Climategate: Who’s Who – a video | Watts Up With That?:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/11/28/understanding-climategate-whos-who-a-video/

I guess he didn’t know what powerful players were backing the scam. Maybe Jones thought they might throw him under the bus for a scapegoat. But there was too much invested.

For a calming bit of laughter, we might say that somebody had decided to emphasize human-caused global warming instead of aliens for getting people to go along with the program…

Shock! “Skeptic” Turns Global Warmist

November 7, 2011

Funny. Big Media is neglecting mention of the report of Muller’s previous quiet “I kind of believe GW” comments, criticisms of the report’s spin from real climate scientists (see below) and almost completely ignored another physicist from the University of California (at Santa Barbara) whose open letter of departure delivered a scathing blast at the American Physical Society

Shock! “Skeptic” Turns Global Warmist | Climategate Book:
http://www.theclimategatebook.com/shock-skeptic-turns-global-warmer/

According to Muller and his team at the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project (BEST), the earth’s climate has warmed well over a full degree (Fahrenheit) since 1950. In response, the Washington Post says Muller’s study has “settled the climate change debate.”

Debate? Wasn’t it Al Gore who stood before Congress in 2007 to declare that “the science is settled” when it comes to global warming? Heck, as chairman of President Bill Clinton’s Sustainable Development Council back in 1995, Gore stated that global warming was a fact and would not be debated.

By the way, it is now reported that the “skeptic” had vocalized in lectures that he was 2/3 convinced, but criticized the IPCC and the climategate gang (even before climategate apparently) because climategate perps had done really bad science, sloppy methodology, discrediting the results. Duh. If so, some “surprise”. Maybe he should have said: “We were quite 1/3 surprised!” Quite so.

Brian Sussman goes on to quote another real climate scientist about the report from the physicist:

I’ll share the inconvenient truth regarding temperature in just a moment, but it must be noted that a BEST team member claims the professor is attmepting to mislead the public. Dr. Judith Curry, who chairs the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology, told the Daily Mail “there is no scientific basis for saying that warming hasn’t stopped. To say that there is detracts from…credibility, which is very unfortunate.”

Digging into the BEST data, one can see what Curry is referring to: global warming has been on ice for over a decade.

What we have is a case of the media not doing its job of properly investigating a story. I think we also may have a Berkeley professor who was hoping get the rock star treatment at the upcoming United Nation’s climate change summit in Durban, South Africa.

And now for the actual history of recent global temperature:

As for the recent history of global temperature swings, here are the facts:

-Between 1850 and 1940, temperatures increased 1°F (.6°C).

-From 1940 to 1970, the earth cooled about .2°F (.1°C).

-A minor warming of a mere .34°F (.2°C) occurred between 1970 and 1998, as verified by NASA-affiliated scientists Dr. Roy Spencer and Dr. John Christy, at the University of Alabama’s Earth System Science Center.

-Average global temperatures have not warmed since 1998, and since 2008 have been on a slight downward trend.

-A compilation of all temperature records indicates a warming since the mid-19th century of .7°C.

By the way, isn’t it interesting that when another University of California professor came out last year and said global warming was a “scam” the media totally ignored it. Here’s a link to Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis’s statement.
