The latest from the IPCC

As is my want I have been dabbling with commenting at the Guardian and its an interesting game of cat and mouse to see just what I can get past the moderators  who are quite amusingly incredibly politically correct.  They have a most incredibly biased moderation and they give free reign to the Millenarian catastrophe fans of the  parsimonious Green persuasion. its the sort of challenge that I enjoy a great deal . Quite predictably they are having a sort of masturbatory online orgasm with the releases of the  IPCC  and treating this political document as if its John Smiths golden pages or the stone slabs brought down from the mountain by Moses but from what I have seen its very much a case of “same old same old” tosh that they have been peddling for years. About the only tick that I can give the document is that it does seem to contain a tacit concession that mitigation can not be made to work at a global level. Considering how long they have had to prepare this political document it don’t amount to much.  James Delingpole has a lovely satirical take on it:

The really scary thing about James piece is that many of the misanthropic Greenies are dreaming of  the predicted apocolypse with a sort of sadomasochistic delight at the prospect that their predictions  will mean millions dead dying or suffering unremitting misery. I am only surprised that they have not yet decided that things like the Ebola outbreak in Africa is a good thing and that it may just be a damn good idea to propagate similar  pandemics around the world to cure the planet of the human disease

Cheers Comrades

are you ready to fight the horrors of the climate apocalypse?

    Disingenuous misrepresentation of GW to the end hey Iain… No wonder the guardian is censoring you though Iain, you wants to listen to increasingly desperate denialists???

    ‘Who wants to’ – ah the joys of autocorrect…

    I think my judgement of the IPCC is right on the money.On the whole the Guardian have no problem at all with my comments, in fact I think that I have a lower than average removal rate for comments posted there.

    The simple fact is that it is the Warministas who are getting more desperate as the public no longer pay much attention to their dire predictions
    .

    Ha, you accuse AGW proponents of being desperate and in this article you’ve invoked…

    -Moses coming down from the mountain
    – Ebola virus pandemic being wished for by the Greens
    – some weird zombie gif as some analogy of fighting the horrors of climate change!

    Yeah Iain, you’re “right on the money” – it’s those greenies who are sounding desperate!

    I appreciate you going on the guardian trying to be all controversial in an attempt to lure people back onto your dying site, but really mate… Most people cant be arsed trying to reason with denialists like you anymore.

    Sorry about that!

    I don’t make accusations about this I share my observations after many years interest in the topic.

    -Moses coming down from the mountain

    Don’t forget that I also evoked Jihn Smith receiving the word of god on Golden plates from an Angel as well. The simple truth that you should be familiar with is that I like to talk about many subjects using metaphorical terms, it is part of may normal rhetorical style and as such invoking Moses is by no means a sign of desperation on my part.

    – Ebola virus pandemic being wished for by the Greens

    As you may recall I have long been suggesting that pandemics and disease in general are the way that a species such as our own are limited from exceeding the environmental carrying capacity of the planet and that its been the role of modern medicine to subvert this natural process. The AGW proponents seem to want to have their cake and eat it as well when it comes to the issue of global population and its relationship to energy use. My bringing this idea into the mix is not a sign of desperation either.

    – some weird zombie gif as some analogy of fighting the horrors of climate change!

    Once again using Gifs as a signature on my posts is nothing unusual and the choice of image is not intellectualised as much as you think. As it happens that image is from a very good game called “The Last of Us” and the creature is a clicker rather than a zombie.

    Yeah Iain, you’re “right on the money” – it’s those greenies who are sounding desperate!

    Well they are saying so themselves, have you not seen the pieces where they complain that “The denialists have won”?

    I appreciate you going on the guardian trying to be all controversial in an attempt to lure people back onto your dying site, but really mate… Most people cant be arsed trying to reason with denialists like you anymore.

    I go to the Guardian for a bit of sport PKD and as they don’t allow you to directly link back to your own website via your user-name the way that WordPress does you can hardly insist that I go there just to drum up readers for this page. That said its interesting that many of my comments there do get recommended by other readers and to be frank Its the sensible people who reject the millenarian cult of Climate change who have largely lost interest in trying to save the true believers from themselves

    Sorry about that!

    Thanks for apologising for the silliness of the AGW proposition…

    BTW where is your essay?
