The State Department investigation of improper computer access to passport records of three presidential candidates is focusing on one remaining employee — a contract worker with a company headed by an adviser to the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.

The probe by State’s inspector general will include polygraph tests for supervisors in the passport section to find out whether the three contract employees who accessed the records had a political motive or were part of a political operation to obtain personal data on Mr. Obama, Sen. John McCain or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Two of the three contract employees had been fired before The Washington Times first reported Thursday on security breaches involving Mr. Obama’s passport records. The furor expanded yesterday to incidents involving the passport records of Mr. McCain and Mrs. Clinton.

The third employee, who has not been fired, worked for The Analysis Corporation (TAC), which is headed by John O. Brennan, a former CIA agent who is an adviser to Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign on intelligence and foreign policy.

Holy. Freaking. Cow. We’ve been told that Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinsky….

It’s a good thing she will destroy him rather than see him become President so she can have a shot in 4 years. Can you imagine what this General Election season will be like? George Soros and Friends throwing $350 million worth of attack ads at McCain, and Hillary’s Machine focused on undermining Obama from every conceivable angle! Will Algore ride to the rescue?

More Inconvenient Truth for Algore Warming Much Less Than Previously Thought

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 29, 2007

If a scientific paper appeared in a major journal saying that the planet has warmed twice as much as previously thought, that would be front-page news in every major paper around the planet. But what would happen if a paper was published demonstrating that the planet may have warmed up only half as much as previously thought?

Nothing. Earlier this month, Ross McKitrick from Canada’s University of Guelph and I published a manuscript in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres saying precisely that.

Scientists have known for years that temperature records can be contaminated by so-called “urban warming,” which results from the fact that long-term temperature histories tend to have originated at points of commerce. The bricks, buildings, and pavement of cities retain the heat of the day and impede the flow of ventilating winds.

For example, downtown Washington is warmer than nearby (and more rural) Dulles Airport. As government and services expand down the Dulles Access road, it, too, is beginning to warm compared to more rural sites to the west.

Adjusting data for this effect, or using only rural stations, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change states with confidence that less than 10% of the observed warming in long-term climate histories is due to urbanization.

Commentary

I am firmly convinced the Global Warming Believers will not accept their religion has been disproved until the next Ice Age begins. They are almost as funny to watch as the 9/11 Twoofers.

Algore’s infamous “hockey stick graph” has been proven false, and a judge ruled in Britain that there were several errors (I say lies) in the movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” and it could not be shown as truth, but as opinion.

I would love to debate Algore over his fantasy that humans are the cause of Catastrophic Anthropological Global Warming, too bad he won’t debate.

Al Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

OSLO, Norway — Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures needed to counteract it.

Gore, who won an Academy Award this year for his film “An Inconvenient Truth,” a documentary on global warming, had been widely expected to win the prize.

Climate change has moved high on the international agenda this year. The U.N. climate panel has been releasing reports, talks are set to resume on a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol, and there is concern about the melting Arctic.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee said global warming, “may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth’s resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world’s most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states.”

Jan Egeland, a Norwegian peace mediator and former U.N. undersecretary for humanitarian affairs, also called climate change more than an environmental issue.

Al Gore joins other notables such as Jimmy Carter and Yasir Arafat…I say he fits right in with that pack of anti-American losers.

The Ice Age Cometh!!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 21, 2007

The Human-caused Global Warming crowd keep telling us “the science is settled,” and are so fearful of their “facts,” that they will not debate the thing, and expose it to criticism, like real science is conducted. The Global Warming hysteria is being pushed on us for political reasons, not scientific ones.
Now, more research is being devoted to the global climate, and the truth is coming out: we are headed for another ice age…perhaps as early as AD 2020.
I just hope it becomes patently obvious in the next decade, while I am still young enough to enjoy the snows that graced my youth.

Stock up on Snow Tires!

Climate stability has never been a feature of planet Earth. The only constant about climate is change; it changes continually and, at times, quite rapidly. Many times in the past, temperatures were far higher than today, and occasionally, temperatures were colder. As recently as 6,000 years ago, it was about 3C warmer than now. Ten thousand years ago, while the world was coming out of the thou-sand-year-long “Younger Dryas” cold episode, temperatures rose as much as 6C in a decade — 100 times faster than the past century’s 0.6C warming that has so upset environmentalists.

…and the payoff…

Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth. Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world, especially Canada. As a country at the northern limit to agriculture in the world, it would take very little cooling to destroy much of our food crops, while a warming would only require that we adopt farming techniques practiced to the south of us.

Al Gore’s Army

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 26, 2007

NASHVILLE — The stocky man with the soft Southern accent rivets the hotel ballroom crowd with his plea: “We are in a time of peril, so please allow me to explain a topic that has overwhelming importance in my life.”

Meet, no, not Al Gore, but Gary Dunham, 71, a grandfather from Texas who was the first of 1,000 Americans Gore trained to deliver his Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth slide show to schools, Rotary clubs and nursing homes around the nation.

Two weeks ago, the last 150 of this hand-picked crew arrived here — paying their own way for everything but food — to go through a two-day seminar starring Gore but effectively led by Dunham and a few other graduates of the former vice president’s global-warming boot camp.

To date, The Climate Project has drawn everyone from Wal-Mart workers to Cameron Diaz. And though the 1,000 mark has been reached, “we keep hearing whispers that (Gore) might do more,” project director Jenny Clad says. “I wouldn’t call this final.”

Two inarguable truths leap out from the 48 hours.

One, Gore’s status officially has changed from defeated presidential candidate to quasi-rock star.

At a group night out at B.B. King’s, a nightclub off Music Row, Gore and his wife, Tipper, are barely left alone with their brisket and collard greens, served in such modest portions that the faithful chatter about a diet and thus a presidential run.

When Gore does invite the crowd over to say hello, he’s besieged. Later, when he’s giving the trainees their final pep talk, the normally noisy ballroom is so quiet you can hear the hum of the air conditioner. If An Inconvenient Truth portrayed Gore as a lonely eco-warrior, he now has a willing army.

I think maybe I scrapped my answer to “an inconvenient truth” too soon, as no one has directly answered the blatant lies told in that film answering each lie with the truth.

Part of his scheme is beginning to fall apart, the Carbon Offset Program has been exposed:


The growing political salience of environmental politics has sparked a “green gold rush”, which has seen a dramatic expansion in the number of businesses offering both companies and individuals the chance to go “carbon neutral”, offsetting their own energy use by buying carbon credits that cancel out their contribution to global warming.

The burgeoning regulated market for carbon credits is expected to more than double in size to about $68.2bn by 2010, with the unregulated voluntary sector rising to $4bn in the same period.

The FT investigation found:

■ Widespread instances of people and organisations buying worthless credits that do not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.

■ Industrial companies profiting from doing very little – or from gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they have already benefited substantially.

■ Brokers providing services of questionable or no value.

■ A shortage of verification, making it difficult for buyers to assess the true value of carbon credits.

■ Companies and individuals being charged over the odds for the private purchase of European Union carbon permits that have plummeted in value because they do not result in emissions cuts.
