How many drowning polar bears can dance on the head of a pin?

Cancun is coming and as my Indian pal Rajan has rightly noted belief in the great myth of “Man Made Global Warming” has reached such a low ebb that even greenie NGOs such as Greenpeace and the WWF are dropping the topic like a hot potato.

  1. If you can access it on line, please take look at a story in theNov 25 South China Morning Post, titled “Are wind farms changing the weather?”.

    A couple of quotes:

    “I have a strong feeling that wind turbines are playing a disruptive, if not destructive, role in (unprecedented drought)” – Li Quinghai, engineer at the Water Resources Bureau.

    “A very large amount of wind power can produce a non-negligible climate change at continental scales.” Professor Keith, University of Calgary.

    Then there is the opposing point of view, the inevitable “It could never happen.” brigade.

    Worth a look.

  2. James,

    It’s not a largely right story on DDT but wholly scientifically provenly right story. Something that flies obviously right over air-headed dreamer Monbiots peanut brained housing.

    Birds fed daily with 2,000 times the dose they could pick up in the wild from mans DDT spraying showed no signs of ill-health. Fact.

    And why did any organisation on the planet put the health of birds ABOVE the health/lives of tens of millions of humans???

    The answer to that question is not possible without inditeing yourself in the murderous genocide environmentalists have, as a matter of patent fact, caused.

    It’s eery how many of your themes (liberty, Big Gov’t, greens, energy, DDT) i agree with. I brought up DDT on your Blog many moons ago, in my previous life as ‘Spanner’.

  3. You know delingpole, it would be good if for once you did some objective journalism. The pros and cons of DDT instead filling your articles with watermelons, eco-fascsist and mass murderers. The point is, the Rachel Carson book was weighing up the benefits/adverse effects of indiscriminate use of DDT. At the end of the day, there’s no evidence of DDT received a world-wide ban as a disease control tool. The US continued to export it and was so widely used in some countries that DDT resistant mosquitoes started appearing. Aside from that, there’s also the toxic buildup that works its way into the environment. You’d think responsible journalism would consider that too?

    Silent Spring was not, “weighing up the benefits/adverse effects of indiscriminate use of DDT” you bloody idiot.

    There is NO mal-effects of DDT spraying pinhead.

    Carson like all shrill green empties was pig ignorant of the scientific facts while spending an antire book fabricating false claims against DDT, none of which were true, even remotely.

    She was like 6 decades of environmentalism, a total retard. Got it peanut brains???

    Don’t do it James, you’ll give yourself a headache!

  6. James, I just read your latest post over at the Telly, and since they won’t allow me to post there, I’m doing so here. You are, of course, right to say that there is a lot of dishonesty in warmism. But I suspect there’s also the result of a quarter of a century of pedagogic neglect, characterised by a pervasive retreat from rigour, and that many Believers honestly believe their beliefs (shome mishtake?) are scientifically sound.

    A few days ago I posted this regarding the forensic naivete that characterises so much warmist argument:

    “Stan, and Dr Bratby – time and again we see Believers engaging in strategies which reveal a fundamental want of forensic insight. “Why”, we ask, “would any sane person think such-and-such would advance his cause”? It is presumably this same shortcoming which may allow them, honestly, to confuse opinion with science. From their point of view, it means the difference between being a fool or a charlatan, but from ours, it means that we cannot treat these people as if they were simply being dishonest, but must accept that they genuinely believe in the CO2 fairy. We have to accept that these people really have learned a different scientific method from the one we learned. Over at Curry, I have been treated to Michael Tobis defending neglect of the null hypothesis on the grounds that it was “not likely to increase the citation count” of the guy who reports it, and I’ve had Bart Verheggen claim that as the “scientific consensus”, of which he remains so fond, emerges, it becomes “the new null hypothesis” – all with apparently straight faces. These gentlemen, I learn, are significant professional climate “scientists”, so their aberrant beliefs may reasonably be thought typical of the field.

    With grotesque intellectual disabilities such as these, the best we can hope for is to eventually marginalise them and remove their influence over policy (and preferably their funding, to boot). They are probably incapable, literally incapable, of understanding their error.”

  7. And while we’re on DDT, let’s not forget the contribution of serial catastrophist, carbon-trading, Nobel-winning, Prize Pillock – yes, it’s big Al himself!

    Does this mean Al gets to keep some of Rachel’s dead African children, and if so, does that reduce the old bat’s own body-count below that of Stalin? Or do they each have to carry the can for the lot? And if not, why not? And if not, who’s Al’s nearest rival? The Turks in 1915? Clearly further research is needed into how many people Al Gore has murdered.

    You’re an idiot. Now you’re trying to be a smart arse too?!!…

    …this is a world for adults that know what they’re talking about. A fat gob running on empty won’t get you anywhere. Go away and grow up leftie

  9. Tom F-P

    Thanks for the link, very interesting. We need to bring the enviromentialists-Gov’t-UN DDT genocide to the publics attention and humble bed bugs could help the cause
