Yippee ki yay, liberals! It's Sarah Palin Month on Telegraph Blogs!

Did any of you catch that brilliant Charlie Brooker demolition of Sarah Palin on Channel 4’s zappy, new, heavily promoted topical comedy/politics show 10 o’clock Live the other night?

For those who missed it, let me tell you what his insights were…

  1. James,
    Can you see why you get so much grief about your views when you say you would choose a wholly inappropriate person as US President, just to piss off the liberals – regardless of the facts of her abilities? And you wonder why people question your decisions on global warming and your ability to evaluate those facts.

    Nothing to be proud of.

  2. Bronny,

    That’s exactly what people said about Ronald Reagan! He seriously offended the left-wingers with his “evil empire” evangelism speech about the Soviet Union, while he reinstated the neutron bomb (550 warheads to deter the Warsaw Pact tanks) and initiated Star Wars/SDI.

    Sometimes, unpopularity with the lefties is not a bad thing. I think Sarah Palin is the kind of person who wouldn’t think twice about pressing the button to eliminate a nuclear threat that is growing, without trying to appease the left-wingers (and the enemy) for years while the threat evolves from a few fission devices to a large stockpile of thermonuclear devices. While I’ve blogged in detail about declassified documents like TM 23-200 that show most thermal, blast and fallout casualties can be averted by civil defence, WWIII would not be a picnic, and I think there is a risk of it “accidentally” emerging from weak, pro-appeasement leadership. Peace treaties get broken very easily, as occurred in the 1930s. Thugs respect strength, not diplomacy.

  3. Reagan and Delingpole have nothing in comon. Reagan was the inventor of Reaganomics that broke the back of the Soviet Union and known as a the great communicator. Delingpole is just a hate peddler and mickey mouse denialist.

  4. Anonymous “Fearless Frank”, I wasn’t comparing investigative journalist James Delingpole to actor/president Ronald Reagan. I can’t believe you misunderstood my comment!

    James isn’t a hate peddler and mickey mouse denialist. It’s fact that the tree ring data doesn’t indicate temperature because tree growth depends on cloud cover (and other factors), not purely air temperature. Even mickey mouse could understand that, but it troubles you. Once you grasp that (and the fact satellites can’t measure global surface air temperature reliably due to cloud cover, while most weather station records were from towns and turned out to be measuring rises in direct city hot air pollution, unconnected to global CO2), you need to rely on measured sea level changes. The sea rose 120 metres over the past 18,000 years, or 0.67 cm/year on average, compared to just 0.20 cm/year over the past century. The maximum rate of rise of sea level naturally was even higher than 0.20 cm/year, so current rates of global climate change are well within natural limits, and relatively small. Dr Ferenc Miskolczi exposed the reason for this: H2O evaporation caused by CO2 causes more cloud cover, which cancels out the CO2 effect on temperature. Climatic researcher Dr Ferenc Miskolczi resigned from a NASA in 2006 when they used peer-review/groupthink politics to censor out his data. I wish James would write about this.

  5. Anyone with half a brain can see on a chart that there is no correlation between CO2 and temperature. But that is not even the issue. The fact is, that even if human activity was warming up the atmosphere, there is nothing anyone should do about it.
    Global warming is good –if only it were occurring– and even according to the IPCC’s doctored figures, no policy could change anything in a noticeable manner.

  6. This is has nothing to do with Sarah Palin but I don’t care. Just wanted to comment on the irony of keeping that book in the loo (with the toilet paper). I expect if would make a cheap alternative to toilet paper

  7. Nige, anonymous because Delingpole keeps getting my posts deleted. So much for freedom of speech. Let’s hope this one isn’t deleted.

  8. I have got a funny feeling that Fearless Frank is ever so slightly dim. Could be wrong but I doubt it.

  9. Wow, denialists that feel funny. I thought feeling stupid were your trademarks. Certainly true with delingpole’s gaff on tv.

  10. “Peer” (bigoted)-review at NASA caused the whole problem in the first place when it suppressed its own researcher Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi! Unlike the IPCC model which makes water absorb infrared and augment CO2 effects, water has a negative feedback on CO2 emissions, CANCELLING OUT the temperature “effect”, by preventing CO2 from driving climate change (climate change is driven naturally by other factors, such as Milankovich cycles, etc.).

    Dianna Cotter, “Hungarian Physicist Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi proves CO2 emissions irrelevant in Earth’s Climate,” Portland civil rights examiner, http://www.examiner.com/civil-rights-in-portland/hungarian-physicist-dr-ferenc-miskolczi-proves-co2-emissions-irrelevant-earth-s-climate#ixzz1DXJY794q :

    “The most effective form of cooling is the evaporation of water, which takes heat energy from the surface and puts it into the air. Clouds form which do three things: 1) create more cloud cover reflecting solar radiation away from the planet which also 2) releases heat into the very high upper atmosphere where it too is radiated out into space as the clouds condense into precipitation, and 3) drops much cooler water back down to the surface cooling things even further.”

    The guy resigned from NASA when NASA suppressed his data.

    Climate scientist and fellow Hungarian, Dr. Miklos Zagoni in his paper “CO2 Cannot Cause any more “Global Warming”” dated December 2009 describes this discovery and its meaning. Dr. Zagoni beautifully sums it up all up:

    “Since the Earth’s atmosphere is not lacking in greenhouse gases [water vapor], if the system could have increased its surface temperature it would have done so long before our emissions. It need not have waited for us to add CO2: another greenhouse gas, H2O, was already to hand in practically unlimited reservoirs in the oceans.”

    Dr. Zagoni explains:

    “Earth type planetary atmospheres, having partial cloud cover and sufficient reservoir of water; maintain an energetically uniquely determined, constant, maximized greenhouse effect that cannot be increased further by emissions. The greenhouse temperature must fluctuate around this theoretical equilibrium constant; [change] is possible only if the incoming available energy changes.”

  11. Hi James,

    I’m writing a physics pre-print server paper reviewing the evidence of H2O evaporation on blocking of CO2 temperature effects, in the papers by Dr. Miklos Zagoni and Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi, and their NASA censorship history. I’ll let you know if it is accepted and goes online, although I’m aware you’re a very busy author who must be tiring of this subject by now.
