Petition Project v. Consensus impostors

Over 30,000 degreed scientists signed the Petition Project successfully urging the Senate to reject the Kyoto Protocol. Yet politicians too ignorant to integrate by parts or even differentiate a simple constant apply religious tests for office.

Arrayed against the 30,000 is the self-styled “Consensus” of unlisted looter scientists. The Consensus claim amounts to unquestionable religious belief impersonating science in the name of Ochlocracy panic. Anonymous sockpuppets haunt internet videos, heaping shrieks and abuse upon “deniers.” But just how many of these Affirmers preach the Revealed Word of the Consensus to the faithful?

centerpetitionIn Legates et al. (2013)Watts Up With That revealed that only 41, or 0.3%, of 11,944 learned papers on climate and related topics published in the journals over the 21 years 1991-2011 flatly stated that recent global warming was mostly manmade. (This was itself premised on the existence and measurability of half a degree’s difference).

Let’s assume there were three authors prophets per paper. That would give us, um,  123 is to 30,000 as x is to 100… 0.41%. So 0.41% of so-called climate scientists set up a caterwauling din over how–because of electricity–the world is a rotisserie. THAT is a Consensus?!   Furthermore, the comparison with the Petition Project is assuming the illustrious Cassandras have actually earned a Bachelor of Science degree in ANY field of science.  One half-wit for every 100 researchers producing papers is several cards shy of a full deck.

I’m gonna have to go with the Petition Project on this one. Indeed there is healthy competition springing up in this business of scientists and educated laymen petitioning Congress on behalf of empowering humanity through access to energy. The Center for Industrial Progress has its own petition to lawmakers. The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels is shaping up as a nice companion volume to Dr Petr Beckmann’s The Health Hazards of NOT Going Nuclear.

It was Petr Beckmann who convinced me that the Libertarian Party was a worthwhile effort, and not a collection of mad anarchists.

Trump and National Socialism

During the campaign subtle cues suggested that Econazi Germany was not looking forward to God’s Own Prohibitionists’ persuasive candidate winning the election.

Still, literate and rational persons who read the National Socialist program Hitler penned in 1920, his 1924 Mein Kampf, or the 1933 Enabling Act speech to the Reichstag find religious conservative beliefs on just about every page. Germany was 98% Protestant and Catholic when Hitler took office amid applause. Big Pharma needed a belligerent madman to terrify foreign regulators seeking to curb German morphine exports and collect war reparations payments. If Germany’s political leader also frightened pharmaceutical competitors, so much the better. Hitler just happened to suit the purposes of military contractors and drug companies, and the crowds loved him.

Thanks to government schools, most Americans cannot define energy, much less understand its units of measure. If a communist dictatorship manipulates persuasive opinion, the Democratic party will sugarcoat its destructive policies in “settled” mystical pseudoscience and offer it as “Our” Only Hope for Salvation. Sound familiar?

Hitler was Germany’s Jesus Christ in that country’s government circles in 1932 according to Time Magazine (Time 6/6/32  80-81). The same “Our Only Hope” wrapper was stretched over the Nuclear Freeze, SALT talks and unilateral surrender in the 1980s. Today it is Global Warming that demands political coercion as Our Only Hope.

German Christians in 1933 feared commie atheists would gun down their priests and pastors. This exact propaganda was handed to me in a Catholic school when I was eight years old–complete with ink drawings of KGB agents machine-gunning hapless priests. This is the image Trump’s persuasion seeks to trigger by hollering “Nazi.”

commiechildHitler’s party promised Germans Socialism with Christianity preserved intact, as in the altruistic Sermon on the Mount. Radiovangelists shouted Hitler’s virtues to the heavens over subsidized Volksempfänger radios. Germans wanted to be controlled by initiation of force, but with a white, Aryan Jesus guiding the procession. Donald Trump is the tool chosen by powerful factions to push a similar agenda. Instead of Big Pharma making and exporting drugs, These States are a Big Police State looting and reselling them domestically. The money is the same.

Now that anyone can read Nationalsocialist writings and see the ominous parallels with American televangelism AND socialism in general, the Republican Party is hard-pressed to hold together its United Front for government jobs and funding. The anti-choice threat to defect to the Tea Party and enlarge its spoiler vote count is not a bluff, hence the popularity of coathanger abortions for Jezebels as public health policy. Yes the international socialists will exploit these similarities while pretending there is a real difference among communo-fascist variants of socialism. Of course Trump will try to distance his party from Hitler’s.

But both looter parties offer us failure: the GOP sells a prohibitionist fascist dictatorship and economic collapse through asset-forfeiture looting, but with legalized energy. The Dems are also pushing that Olde-Tyme collectivized socialism of the Traveller from Altruria, with confiscations, prohibition, crowded prisons… Dems never offered to repeal abortion laws as in Canada, not repeal pot prohibition. Both parties guarantee continued US involvement in religious wars and terrorism. Only the Libertarian party upholds freedom as opposed to coercion, and has enough spoiler vote clout to repeal bad laws. Our peaceful platform is 13 times smaller than theirs. Anyone can read it in half an hour.

How pseudoscience fakes data–from the JoNova blog

The Fake Conversation where Bill’s informative, polite comments are removed, but the replies are left there. Last week Bill Johnston posted a detailed, comprehensive analysis of Sydney Observatory thermometer record here that shows that most of the warming recorded there is due to buildings and freeways. But photo’s and graphs are “denier” stuff, and The…

Appeasing religious fanatics

 

Neville Chamberlain gave Europe a good lesson on the futility of Utilitarianism. But wait a minute… Isn’t Utilitarianism a good thing? The greatest good for the greatest number sure sounds democratic. Then again,   German Democratic Republic and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea also sound democratic. Enter the Utilitarian Monster. 

The Utilitarian Monster lives in a Gedankenexperiment in which an evil monster in, say, a Zeppelin, arrives at the city gate and demands the sacrifice of one individual or else the entire town will be bombed. The City Fathers vote to sacrifice you, dear reader–BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU! Yes, true Christian sacrifice is the surrender of that which you value more in exchange for what you value less. If they valued your egotistical selfishness, they would never have surrendered you. It is precisely because altruistic collectivism says you are innocent and good that your life gets crushed. Cowardice is preserved, and everyone is happy–happy, that is, until the Utilitarian Monster returns the following day with the same ultimatum. Yes, this is headed in the same direction as those chapters on sequences and series in math class… Everyone in a utilitarian village can be wiped out, one at a time, by bluffing.

But to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, mathematics was just theory. Peace was the important thing and sacrifice by appeasement was what everyone–the teachers, reverend clergy, government school philosophy and ethics teachers, Adolf Hitler–all said was good, right, socially benevolent. The ethics was settled, and it was time to put it into practice. Unfortunately, the Czechoslovakians were the ones being pushed onto the altar of altruism and sacrifice, and the experiment was real, not Gedanken.

Not everyone agreed with Hitler, of course. The one person who had the guts to speak out against the cowardly monstrosity–against the cringing sanction of the next victim–was a young woman born in 1909 who worked in Hollywood. Her name was Carmen Miranda and she wrote a samba describing Europe’s capitulation to militant German National Socialist religious conservatism. The 1938 samba is titled “Salada Mista.”

Conservatives hate Carmen Miranda and Mae West for pretty much the same reason. Conservative ideology hates freedom and worships superstition and coercion.

If you want to replace bad ethics and politics with something better, you might want to look into the Libertarian party.

95% Confidence That NASA Temperature Records Are Fraudulent — The Rudy Heller Climate Science Blog

In 2001, NASA graphs showed 0.5C warming from 1880 to 1998. Now they show 1.1C warming during that same period. The image below overlays the two NASA graphs, with the colors shifted in the 2001 version for clarity. Gavin Schmidt has more than doubled warming by altering the data. Even worse, Gavin has altered the…

The Misanthropic Principle

Nuclear Winter nostalgia

Worshippers of gods infesting the minor Pantheon, such as the Four Horsemen, tend to also be scolders of the Seven Deadly Sins. Some, like Herbert Hoover–for whom prosperity was just around the corner–turn out to be Predictors of things that Never Happen. Millerites were horrified when Jesus failed to lift them to Heaven as calculated, and His failure to also cast their rivals into the Seventh Circle entered History as The Great Disappointment of 1844. The communist religion was prey to similar notions. Remember Nuclear Winter? 

As an undergrad exposed to nuclear winter dinning I was careful to avoid the corridors frequented by Prof. John A. Wheeler, originator of the Anthropic Principle. Wheeler’s simplest scientific papers seem an exercise in English as an Alien Language. His Goldilocks Universe principle did not belch forth Prophesy or Prediction liable to frighten excerebrose voters out of their wits (or attract students too lazy to absorb tensor calculus). Wheeler’s main line of work successfully put the National and International Socialist empires out of business. That accomplished, Wheeler surveyed appreciation of his musings on cosmological constants with lofty equanimity, and spoke out in favor of nuclear power plants.

Nuclear power detractors spring mainly from the wreckage of looter kleptocracies. Their fundamental premise is that all men are disgusting wretches who can’t be trusted. Incidentally, this exactly the same philosophical premise underpinning religious conservatism–also an ideological kleptocracy, and also given to paranoid delusions about marijuana, LSD, mescalin and other things about which its faithful are equally ignorant. Warmer Revelation holds that only some other of said disgusting creatures, never oneself, deserves what you yourself earn. This summarizes the Misanthropic Principle, keystone of the Church of the End Times and its wholly-owned subsidiary the Cult of the Holy Warmers. Global Cassandras and hand-wringing prohibition fanatics are happily unhandcuffed by data where fundamental morality-of-altruism issues come into play. The exact same mentality that seeks to ban nuclear energy also seeks to ban enjoyable substances, though they are rarely political allies.

Affirmers believe as a matter of Revealed Faith that the End is Nigh. Affirmers blame a desperate shortfall in the initiation of coercive and deadly force for the existential threat now facing humanity. Climate Cassandras are–by definition rather than evidence, The Scientific Consensus prophesied to be Saved and supported on the backs and pocketbooks of lesser luminaries. The Consensus platform in the political arena also called for the usual bombing of primitive mystics on the other side of the planet, jailing hippies and brown people over plants, and asset-forfeiture looting demanded by “both” parties. These are moderate and popular stands according to 96% of the voters. (The Libertarian party earned 3.28% of the 2016 vote, thereby swinging 124 electoral votes in 11 states, and the econazis probably completed the rounding to an even 4%, swinging electoral votes for 3 states). The Libertarian party does not want to destroy power plants, bomb primitives or jail people and confiscate their homes. See our platform. We change laws because our spoiler votes threaten to defenstrate the more ignorant and superstitious Kleptocracy candidates.

3rdchoiceJust under half of Kleptocracy voters have been vouchsafed the Revealed Word saying that non-communist industrial nations must pay totalitarian States a carbon tithe. The other half, whose locations coincide with large numbers of electoral votes, happen to belong to a cult that prefers shoot-first prohibitionism and defenestration to redistribution of wealth. The upside is that adherents of the Cult of the Holy Warmers are, per current consensus among prophets, about to move en masse into a lower tax bracket. Economic collapse from prohibitionist asset-forfeiture is now much more likely to cause economic collapse than illiterate meddling in our generating capacity. We seek solutions that do not point guns at the voters.

Letter to Democrat voters

Howdy Dem Buckaroos, Thanks for reading my material on how–a month after the Libertarian Party managed to acquire a single electoral spoiler vote–the Republican Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in favor of individual rights. In November your prohibitionist Luddite puppet lost by 77 votes. God’s Own Prohibitionists’ puppet got enough excess electoral votes to beat your half of  The Kleptocracy 77 times. Your candidates lost because of this anti-rights platform:

As we continue working to reduce carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gas emissions, we must ensure federal actions do not “significantly exacerbate” global warming.
…carbon pollution and rapidly driving down emissions of potent greenhouse gases like hydrofluorocarbons. We will support developing countries in their efforts to mitigate carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases, deploy more clean energy, and invest in climate resilience and adaptation.
…bold steps to slash carbon pollution and protect clean air at home, lead the fight against climate change around the world
To build on the success of the lifesaving Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, we will expand and strengthen background checks and close dangerous loopholes in our current laws…

True, the Democratic platform did stand up for the individual rights of women threatened by the coercive zealotry of mystical fanatics. But clearly the higher priorities of the Democratic party were leaving These States without electricity, and  disarming citizens like Kristallnacht National Socialists in violation of the Second Amendment. You also supported continuing the prohibitionist asset-forfeiture looting George Bush used to completely wreck the economy in 2007. And you wanted to lecture others about Alexander Hamilton to panhandle electoral votes?

I suppose it never occurred to you the panhandling idea might have originated in the Republican camp? The GO-Pee and its faith-based fanatics bore the brunt of the 1972 Libertarian Electoral vote. We had the pro-choice woman candidate  (Toni Nathan) and the economic freedom platform that terrified Nixon’s Party and its Suprema Corte into legalizing individual rights. By loudly tricking your dupes into trying to transfer electoral votes to the other looters, they goaded the Christianofascists into circling their wagons. They also tricked your own totalitarian sympathizers into likewise refraining from transferring electoral votes from the sinking ship Altruria to the ONLY party left standing up for the individual rights of pregnant women. Thanks for telegraphing where your loyalties lie. We’ll remember that.

butthurtsalve16Here’s a little something to make you and your Chinese environazi handlers feel a little better. It’s a salve from the political party whose fascist agenda YOU helped to further! You wanted the cops to keep shooting kids and confiscating assets? YOU GOT IT! You wanted huge pseudoscience bureaucracies to rob us at gunpoint? YOU GOT IT! That’s the prohibitionism your party and the GO-Pee both supported, and YOU GOT IT!  You wanted to force idiotic legislation on the rest of the world?  YOU GOT IT! You wanted high taxes to support genocidal policies? YOU GOT THEM!

Congratulations, Democratic, Green and Communist Party USA! My schadenfreude goes out to you: both barrels!
