When The Hoax Hour Is Late…

You must re-date. Yes, the latest, much-hyped “New-And-Improved Hockey Stick” that the Red Estate assures us proves global warming–though there hasn’t been any in 17 years–is in freefall. Steve McIntyre does it again with the Marcott-Shakun Dating Service.

First, from Marcott’s own PhD thesis…

thesis-short1And, after adjustments, the one published in Science magazine…

figure-1cThis may be even more damaging to the Mann Carbon Cabal than his original bogus chart because of all the “it’s true” hype. How much hype will there be when Science retracts the submission? That was rhetorical, of course.

Congrats To The Pommies

GoogleBritainThe first of the International Go(oglers) to find the new site. Don’t suppose it has anything to do with the Skank/Lesbian/Feminist/Trolls petitioning to shut down Page Three? That’s an outrage, they should be flogged naked in Trafalgar Square…except that they are Skank/Lesbian/Feminist/Trolls and there are probably (reasonable, for a change) Elf ‘n Safety regs against seeing them uncovered in public. Far better to see a Whole Lotta Rosie

Okay, the Brits were just the first Go(oglers). The Indonesians were the first international minions on site…more on that later. 😉

A Whole New Level Of Green $camulus

carbon_particleYesterday, at Hot Air, Jazz Shaw posed the question: “How well will new Energy Secretary Moniz play with the EPA?” To me, the answer is obvious–he will play very nicely. You thought Solyndra, Fisker, First Solar and the Chevy El Fuego Volt were bad? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Why do I say that? Because, as Shaw noted, physicist Ernest Moniz’ baby is sequestration. No–not that one, Carbon Sequestration, which in non-Thermageddon-monger-speak means burying CO2 in a deep underground vault as if it were Rubidium-87.

This, as teh Aussies, Pommies and Canucks can attest, has proven to be a particularly impossible thing to do. One study said even if an underground reservoir could withstand the ever-increasing pressures of injected gas, it would have to be “the size of a small us state.”

But physicists love solving impossible problems–especially when they have nearly unlimited $$$$ to throw at them, which Moniz will. The Pommies, who admitted to “wasting $1.6 billion” on this snark hunt last year, are planning to do it again. Well, we’re Americans, dammit! We can waste more money than the Limeys–Forward!

Prediction: Here’s how Moniz will play with the EPA. The new EPA regs set CO2 emission standards for power plants burning natural gas which no coal plant can meet? He’ll get them waivers…as long as they pour money down whatever number of sequestration holes the EPA picks out of thin air. Obama gets to say, “Look, all-of-the-above!”, while making the price of the cheapest most abundant energy resource on the planet Skyrocket. Just like he said he would…

Riddle Me This Code Monkey Crusader…

I was booted from the old WordPress digs, ostensibly for an impermissible level of pr@n. Now, here, I am getting “likes” and “follows” from folks I never saw before. Some, like the one photographer I thought had neat stuff, I linked in the Brain Candy widget. And then, today, I got a two likes and a follow from these guys…

You can see in the top left-hand corner that it’s a WordPress blog, which, as you can also see, links to a self-hosted–I presume–retail site. I grabbed this screenshot–it’s just the first product on their page today. I was going to just post their avatar, but for some reason it wouldn’t blow up.

I certainly hope that’s not an indictment of their other…products. 😉

Now, why was my old site shut down again? In all the excitement, I can’t seem to remember.

Assclown Admiral Calls AGW Biggest Threat

artificialreefsaroundtheworld004Bigger than China’s blue water navy hassling Japan?  Bigger than the Russian navy hassling anyone they want? Bigger than Iran and North Korea lobbing nukes at us and Israel? Yep, according to Admiral Samuel Locklear, Thermageddon is the greatest military threat facing the world.

“You have the real potential here in the not-too-distant future of nations displaced by rising sea level. Certainly weather patterns are more severe than they have been in the past. We are on super typhoon 27 or 28 this year in the Western Pacific. The average is about 17.”

Well, admiral if you get your sea-level fearmongering from Grist or PuffHo, or from James “250-feet of sea-level rise” Hansen, I can see where you’d say that. However, if you look at actual data from your own naval stations, you’d realize that you just made the most asinine assessment of naval priorities since Joe Sleestak had access to a microphone.

Get your shit straight or take the pension. God/King Obamandias obviously doesn’t need anyone with military experience in charge, any Women’s Studies major from NYU could utter such inanities with equal authority, and would also bring enough birth control with her to skank up the entire pacific fleet without your help. It’s a win-win.

Let’s Try This Again, Shall We?

Welcome to my latest attempt at Soylent Green. As you might gather from the above animation, I am still just a bit put out for having been put out of the old digs by the Cursed Code Monkeys. Apparently, “close-ups of genitalia” was the ne plus ultra of TOS violations for which I was evicted from my previous abode–because the only other no-noes listed under their mature site guidelines are explicit sexual activity and child pr@n, neither of which ever applied to Soylent.

Full disclosure: okay, there were links to explicit sites, but they were marked non-public and never saw the light of day. I suspect, however, that their mere existence may have been enough to call down the lightning.

Still, my visceral reaction to “I know it when I see it” censorship is always…

Meh, I can live with a slightly less gynecological bevy of bodacious.

But what really pisses me off, is that I have, so far, been unable to export all the old material. Ergo, I have lost (permanently I fear) classic material such as the Harbqll, McGoo, Lemur King, Soylent ShutDown of The Weblog Awards after voting RealClimate a finalist for Best Religious Blog, the Link Of A Lifetime from Jerry Pournelle and of course, all memory of the 30,000 hit single-day record provided by Catalina Robayo. My reaction to that…?

So, while I dislike the idea of starting from scratch with only Site Y’s limited visibility for pimpage, I will…soldier on.
