I showed the above picture of The Great Balls of Fire Terrorist to my sister last night. Her instantaneous response... "That's some crazy shit right there". OMG! I laughed for an hour. Some other contributions from the chat room were "Fruit of the Boom", "thunderwear", and a statement that it gives new meaning to "thermal underwear".

You can actually buy these Saguaro Cactus shaped Christmas trees!

Where the Global Warming Hoax Was Born
by Marjorie Mazel Hecht (pdf)
“Global Warming” is, and always was, a policy for genocidal reduction of the world’s population. The preposterous claim that human-produced carbon dioxide will broil the Earth, melt the ice caps, and destroy human life, came out of a 1975 conference in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, organized by the influential anthropologist Margaret Mead, president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), in 1974.
Mead—whose 1928 book on the sex life of South Pacific Islanders was later found to be a fraud (WHAT?? I read that book when i was a kid! - kirls) —recruited like-minded anti-population hoaxsters to the cause: Sow enough fear of mancaused climate change to force global cutbacks in industrial activity and halt Third World development. Mead’s leading recruits at the 1975 conference were climate scare artist Stephen Schneider, population-freak biologist George Woodwell, and the current AAAS president John Holdren—all three of them disciples of Malthusian fanatic Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb. Guided by luminaries like these, conference discussion focussed on the absurd choice of either feeding people or “saving the environment.”
Mead began organizing for her conference, “The Atmosphere: Endangered and Endangering,” shortly after she had attended the United Nations Population Conference in Bucharest, Romania, in August 1974. She had already bullied American scientists with her Malthusian view that people were imperiling the environment. She wrote in a 1974 Science magazine editorial that the Population Conference had settled this question:
At Bucharest it was affirmed that continuing, unrestricted worldwide population growth can negate any socioeconomic gains and fatally imperil the environment.... The earlier extreme views that social and economic justice alone can somehow offset population increase and that the mere provision of contraception can sufficiently reduce population—were defeated.
The North Carolina conference, which took place Oct. 26-29, 1975, was cosponsored by two agencies of the U.S. National Institutes of Health: the John E. Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. (Mead had been a Scholar in Residence at the Fogarty Center in 1973.)
It was at this government sponsored conference, 32 years ago, that virtually every scare scenario in today’s climate hoax took root. Scientists were charged with coming
up with the “science” to back up the scares, so that definitive action could be taken by policy-makers.
The computer model spits out a hockey stick no matter what you feed into it, including random noise!

All told, Connolley (RealClimate.org co-founder William Connolley - yeah, no bias there - Kirls) created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to Connolley’s global warming views, in contrast, were rewarded with Wikipedia’s blessings. In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.
The Medieval Warm Period disappeared, as did criticism of the global warming orthodoxy. With the release of the Climategate Emails, the disappearing trick has been exposed. The glorious Medieval Warm Period will remain in the history books, perhaps with an asterisk to describe how a band of zealots once tried to make it disappear.
Hey, it's just like Peer Review by scientists.

Connolley is not only a big shot on Wikipedia, he’s a big shot at Wikipedia — an Administrator with unusual editorial clout. Using that clout, this 40-something scientist of minor relevance gets to tear down scientists of great accomplishment.
He's like the Charles Johnson of Wikipedia! LOL
And it doesn't matter that he's been canned as a Wiki admin. The damage is done. As long as his contributions remain there, it's a worse than useless source of information; it's a corrupt propaganda tool.

The New Big Lie: Climategate Emails Are Not Significant
The criminals at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in England brazenly defend the indefensible.
couple years old but good
An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change
Nigel Calder, former editor of New Scientist, says the orthodoxy must be challenged
books on Svendsmarks theories and discoveries The Manic Sun, The Chilling Stars
The best measurements of global air temperatures come from American weather satellites, and they show wobbles but no overall change since 1999.
After long delays in scraping together the funds for an experiment, Svensmark and his small team at the Danish National Space Center hit the jackpot in the summer of 2005.
In a box of air in the basement, they were able to show that electrons set free by cosmic rays coming through the ceiling stitched together droplets of sulphuric acid and water. These are the building blocks for cloud condensation. But journal after journal declined to publish their report; the discovery finally appeared in the Proceedings of the Royal Society late last year.

The recent 'ClimateGate' revelations coming out of the UK University of East Anglia are but the tip of a giant iceberg of a well organized international climate warming conspiracy that has been gathering momentum for the last 25 years. This conspiracy would become much more manifest if all the e-mails of the publically funded climate research groups of the US and of foreign governments were ever made public.
Their plans to deal with the "affluent minority" (that would be us):
The next 40 years: Transition strategies to the Virtuous Green Path; North, South, East, Global'.

if you don't see the picture blinking please go to WattsUpWithThat.
I have no idea what they're doing but abruptly changing data with little or no explanation is not acceptable. In fact, Anthony Watts is right when he says "The timing could not be worse for public confidence in climate data" as I do indeed have even more doubt about anyone involved in pushing AGW.

Do you see what they've done? They've adjusted the data. Sounds innocuous and as Anthony Watts points out, sometimes adjustments are necessary, valid, and reasonable. But, in this case, the black line represents the adjustment to the raw data, the blue line. The resulting alarmist curve is the red. That is what the warm-mongers used to scare everyone. And this is just one set of data. Chosen by Anthony Watts randomly. Just what sort of adjustments have these socalled scientists added to the rest of the world wide temperatures??
Read the rest. It's worse even than the picture indicates.
Correction: The analysis was done by Willis Eschenbach.

Lancashire blacksmith's son and leader of the Communist Party of Great Britain stood in front of the group of high-flying young Left-wingers at Cambridge University.
Harry Pollitt told them: 'Don't join us. Work hard, get good degrees, join the Establishment and serve our cause from within.'
It was a few years after World War II and they took Pollitt at his word. Within a decade, the Communist Party foundered (its membership peaked at 60,000 in 1945) as Pollitt's bright young devotees infiltrated the Establishment.
They were soon exercising considerable influence in universities, the state education system, publishing houses, the legal hierarchy and the civil service.
But it was in politics that these high-flying members of the Left established their greatest power-base, both in the Labour Party and the trades' union movement.
Just how deep the tentacles of communism reached into the heart of British government has now been revealed with the emergence of an extraordinary diary by Anatoly Chernyaev, the Soviet Union's contact man with the West at the icy height of the Cold War.
Meticulously detailed and written by hand on lined notepaper, the diary has come to light in the U.S. National Security Archive.
It tells the story of a 'special relationship' not between Britain and America - but between the British Labour Party and Soviet communists.
It was a relationship that lasted more than 30 years, right up to Margaret Thatcher's arrival as Prime Minister in 1979 and beyond.
Indeed, one of the most shocking of the diary's many revelations is how Labour leaders Michael Foot and Neil Kinnock colluded with the Soviet communists to try to beat their 'common enemy', Margaret Thatcher.
But more worrying, perhaps, is the fact that the document shows in stark detail how the political ideology of so many of those who govern us today was shaped by the unspeakable communist creed of the Soviet Union.

Understanding Climategate's Hidden Decline
By Marc Sheppard
First and foremost -- contrary to what you’ve likely read elsewhere in the logosphere or heard from the few policymakers and pundits actually addressing the issue, it was not the temperature decline the planet has been experiencing since 1998 that Jones and friends conspired to hide. Certainly, the simple fact that the email was sent in November of 1999 should have allayed any such confusion.
In fact, the decline Jones so urgently sought to hide was not one of measured temperatures at all, but rather figures infinitely more important to climate alarmists – those determined by proxy reconstructions. As this scandal has attracted new readers to the subject, I ask climate savvy readers to indulge me while I briefly explain climate proxies, as they are an essential ingredient of this contemptible conspiracy.
