Environmentalism's Blog Action Day

In celebration of Blog Action Day on which the combined blegosphere is to post on the environment I thought I'd take the opportunity to keep the readership up to speed with some news recently received from Dutch environmentalist watch dog "De Klimatosoof", Theo Richel.

It is of course about the recent ruling of a British judge in re of the Gore scandal, which is actually unprecedented in the history in humanity. Never before have so many heads of state and government been hoodwinked by a piece of fraudulent rhetoric posing as serious science. At some point it reached embarrassment levels.

I can spare myself the trouble of translating the whole thing by relaying the relevant links to Times articles No. 1 and No. 2 that say it all. Here's the link to order educational material should you require it.

All that is leaving aside why the Nobel Peace Committee has seen fit to endow this fraudster with a peace prize, even if we have become accustomed to some shocks in that department over the last decades. Richel has compiled all the negative reactions to the award on his site.

Of course we have to take into consideration the criteria with which this prize is awarded in the first place. It's almost Orwellian Newspeak - by which, after good totalitarian practice, a word has the exact opposite meaning. American Thinker:

"According to the 1895 will of the Prize's founder, Swedish scientist Alfred Nobel, the Peace Prize is to be awarded, "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

Gore evidently has done none of the above, but it is a mystery in what sense the "abolition or reduction of standing armies" has ever contributed to world peace. The fact that the Cold War has never become a hot one was entirely due to the balance of power of the standing armies. The perfidity of pacifists knows no bounds.

Leaving you this Blog Action Day with Theo Richel's YouTube compilation of Al's black-book of environmental disasters, which - according to Richel - are all within the normal spectrum of climatic phenomena. The purpose is of course control and deflection from the real problems.
