A climate of hate and a license to kill.


Of late we’ve seen a rash of examples showing just how ugly the face of the cult of environmentalism can be. There’ve been calls for the beheading of skeptics and even a wish that their children should kill them. If you’re fresh to what’s laughably called the climate debate, you’ll probably be appalled by such extremist … Continue reading

Mid-term blues.


The mid-term elections in America are over and the big winner is the Republican party who’ve taken control of both houses of congress. There are a number of conclusions to be drawn from the results. The big one is that once you get past the media’s continuing love affair with the concept of a Barack Obama, … Continue reading

The scorning of William Connolley.


I think we’ve all had that pleasant surprise when something totally unexpected just drops out of the sky and into your lap. That happened to me last weekend when a creature called William Connolley attempted to comment on a piece I’d written about the Bengtsson scandal. If you’re unfamiliar with him, he’s infamous for editing thousands of … Continue reading

En passant moves of a minor imp of Satan.


There are some disagreeable things one is obliged to do as a climate skeptic blogger and they’re mainly needed to keep a finger on the alarmist pulse. A very important one is to not only read the propaganda output from the alarmist organs of dissemination, or should I call them organs of disinformation, but to … Continue reading

Do we call them Nazis or not?


An Oxbridge don, after staggering out of a faculty meeting that had dragged on for hours, was heard to remark that how a predominantly male society could produce so many old women, was totally beyond him. What I think he was referring to was the more than usual amount of bitchiness one finds prevalent in academia, … Continue reading

What a bunch of pissant spineless scum they really are.


One glance at that picture above and you understand the mentality at work. All that’s missing is the soundtrack but I think we can all add that in for ourselves. It’s always the same song with just they lyrics varying. ‘Come out nigger, we’re here to string you up’ or perhaps it’s just old-fashioned burn … Continue reading

Cool it …


I wrote the following paragraph in a previous piece on fanatics and the subtle perils of prolonged contact with them – There is also an insidious danger to this sort of interaction with them; you start to get imprinted by them. If you’re not careful, you soon start to take on the same fanatical traits … Continue reading

Used intelligently, they’re our bitches now.


Within any community of people, there’s always a natural diversity of personality. Usually that diversity is an asset to be tapped into and utilised, sometimes it’s a liability and people learn to cope with the variations. On average, some people are good in certain situations and bad in others, and again, the people around them … Continue reading

Know your ultimate enemy : the dream.


It’s about having an honest conversation. That’s what I’ve come to think blogging is. Yes, you can muck around showing how slick or amusing you are but unless you’re genuinely trying to talk to one or two other human beings out there, who perhaps may only exist in your mind’s eye, you’re just adding a bit more … Continue reading

Know your enemy : the climate activist.


In the context of this series of articles about getting to know the opposition, I think it’s important at an early stage to get a realistic view of what we’re actually dealing with when it comes down to this particular category, because so many of the people who fall into the other categories I’ll be covering … Continue reading

How to run a really bad infowar campaign.


It’s perhaps a debatable opinion, but I think the main way that a lot people found out there actually was such a thing as the climate skeptic blogosphere, was that its existence was highlighted by the alarmists themselves. In the complete absence of any PR budget, it was actually the alarmists who by attacking it, inadvertently … Continue reading

How tropical storm Sandy became a Frankenstorm …


Infowar uses propaganda, which is directed at a population to give them a worldview which accords with your own political beliefs. There are a lot of propaganda techniques; disinformation, censorship, misrepresentation, character assassination, lies, intimidation and the rewriting of history, to name but a few. Used properly and pervasively enough, it easily controls the general population … Continue reading

Intentions, profiles and predictability.


I’ve spent an inordinate amount of my life working out other people’s real intentions, and what they would do and how they would attempt to do it, because of those intentions. Getting one jump ahead of complex, imaginative and sometimes troubled minds, is a tough business, but that’s what made it interesting. They were those very … Continue reading

An assessment of current alarmist propaganda.


It’s been obvious for some time, that the science behind the most alarming claims about the effects of any putative global warming, is not only unsustainable but indefensible. We still of course get the occasional paper, trying to resurrect an old scare, which has already been demolished, but as happened with both the Shakun and Gergis papers, the climate … Continue reading

Our secret weapon.


There are three elements to be considered when formulating a strategy; the ultimate objective of the strategy, the resources you have available to achieve that objective and the way the resources are to be deployed to take and then hold that objective. Obviously, our objective is to destroy the political credibility of climate alarmism. Identifying … Continue reading

Green Myths : There’s only one evil species on Earth and it’s us.


I am not a religious man. For a number of reasons, some intellectual but mostly personal, I don’t even believe in a God but I acknowledge the overall good religion has done in the world, as well as the bad. A religion is after all a man-made thing directed by human beings and will therefore … Continue reading

Happy birthday Pointman’s.


It doesn’t seem like it, but it’s been a year since I started this blog. I started it for a number of reasons and with more than a few reservations but with some modest hopes in sight, so now seems to be an appropriate time to think about how it’s doing and the experience of being a … Continue reading

The Durban debacle awaits …


Here we go again, another climate clambake attracting attendees from all over the world. They’ll be the usual assortment of politicians, government civil servants, Media, NGOs, activists and fruit loops determined to save the earth from global warming. Nothing changes. In terms of the basic political objectives, nothing much either has changed since Cancun. The developing … Continue reading

Global warming and pathological science.


There are many aspects to the style of science underpinning the theory of global warming that remind me of something the American scientist Irving Langmuir christened pathological science. Wiki for once is accurate and defines it as – “Pathological science is a psychological process in which a scientist, originally conforming to the scientific method, unconsciously … Continue reading

So, which is it; Global Warming, Climate Disruption or Climate Change?


We had nearly two decades worth of propaganda telling us we were the cause of the planet warming up and unless we stopped emitting carbon, we were all going to burn up in the looming thermogeddon. This scare was branded Global Warming and gradually entered the popular consciousness. People naturally got a bit concerned about … Continue reading
