non-skeptic heretic club.

They "Believe", but have interpreted the "Scriptures" in a different way than most of the members of the Church of Climatology.

[...] Hans von Storch, director of the Institute of Coastal Research in Germany, said that the world's problems were already so big that the added burdens caused by rising temperatures would be relatively small. It would be like going 160 kilometers per hour on the autobahn when "going 150 . . . is already dangerous," he said. [...]

[...] Pielke's new analysis considered 207 hurricanes that hit the United States between 1900 and 2005. He looked at their strength and course and then overlaid them on a modern map that included all development over the years.

He found that the most devastating storm, had it occurred today, would be the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926, popularly known as the Big Blow. Its path through the now heavily developed southern tip of Florida would have caused $157 billion in damage, followed by Katrina, whose toll was $81 billion. Six of the top 10 most damaging storms occurred before 1945. [...]

An interesting read even for those who are of the "Skeptic Heretic" Club.

Welcome to Alberta

Things you should know before settling in...

1: Pull up your pants, you look like an idiot!

2: Let's get this straight, it's called a gravel road. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

3: That lingering scent in the air comes from the combination of sweat, crops, live stock and oil. To you it just stinks, to us it is the lovely scent of money. Get over it.

4: So, you drive a sixty-thousand dollar car. We're real impressed. We have a quarter-million dollar Combine that we drive three weeks a year.

5: Every person in a pickup waves. It's called being friendly. We open doors for women. This applies to everyone regardless of age. Try to understand the concept.

6: We started hunting and fishing when we were nine years old. Yeah, we saw "Bambi" too. We got over it.

7: Yeah, we eat beef and pork. You want sushi and caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

8: The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

9: Per capita, each man, woman and child owns at least two firearms and knows how to use them.

10: Highway 2 runs north and south, Highways 1 and 16 run east and west. Highways 63 and 43 lead to the promise lands. If you don't like it here, I suggest you use 1 or 16 as your escape route. You could use 2 south but if you don't like it here I doubt very much you would like it any better south of the border.

Enjoy your stay!

The New Golden Rule

You dare to fail my sweet little child! Thats a LAW SUIT!

I think I see where these kids get their smarts from... they inherited it...

Please, pretty please, someone bring back the monkey bars. I'm now certain they were designed by God to give us humans the ability to develop common sense.

Alarming Confusion

Icy start, but 2008 may be in top 10 warmest years

After the coldest start to a year in more than a decade, spring will bring relief to the northern hemisphere from Thursday. [...]

But not in Canada you say... such a pity.

Obviously Mother Nature has a hate on for Canadians.
We know it was wrong of us to stand idly by and let Al Gore show all those explicit photographs of what you're going to look like 30 years from now. But seriously [...]

Sorry Scott Feschuk, but according to Environment Canada's senior climatologist, Dave Phillips... it is far from over. March 20th will not bring spring to Canada. No reprieve for winter-weary, climatologist says
[...] And while Phillips is forecasting six more weeks of winter weather, he says not every day will be like that.

"We typically see in Eastern Canada anywhere of 10 to 15 per cent of our annual snowfall comes after the first day of spring,'' said Phillips. ''Out west some of the big Paul Bunyan snowfalls on the Prairies have occurred in April and May.''

Environment Canada is predicting the first month of spring is going to be colder than normal across the country.

In May, conditions will warm up in much of the East, but the forecast calls for colder than normal temperatures for the West, the territories, Newfoundland and Labrador, and in the northern half of Quebec. [...]

My advice is, don't put away your shovels or your Icebreakers just yet! You will be needing them until the middle of May, perhaps even sometime in June.

Global Warming... Why have you forsaken me.... So much for my love life.



AHRC keeps its perfect record in tact. No surprise there... That they only awarded $5000.00 is!

Where oh where did the warming go

They just don't know...

[...] In fact, 80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters. They hold much more heat than the atmosphere can. So Willis has been studying the ocean with a fleet of robotic instruments called the Argo system. The buoys can dive 3,000 feet down and measure ocean temperature. Since the system was fully deployed in 2003, it has recorded no warming of the global oceans.

"There has been a very slight cooling, but not anything really significant," Willis says. [...]

[...] "I suspect that we'll able to put this together with a little bit more perspective and further analysis," Trenberth says. "But what this does is highlight some of the issues and send people back to the drawing board."

Trenberth and Willis agree that a few mild years have no effect on the long-term trend of global warming. But they say there are still things to learn about how our planet copes with the heat. [...]

Read it all

Let me give you brainiacs some help... Its called NATURE, from that we get NATURAL. Which is exactly what is happening now, has happened in the past and will happen in the future. Like everything on this planet, our climate goes through cycles. Get use to it. It is not going to change...

Dion the Leprechaun or Leper

Bumped... and Updated...

Turns out it is both.

Toronto Centre and Willowdale were no surprise. Had Bob Rae and Martha Hall Findlay not won those ridings I would be dead now from pure shock.

In Vancouver Quadra, Dion had the luck of the Irish on his side as it was a fairly close race. Which was a bit of a surprise for me at least. I figured this one would be another Liberal landslide. Joyce Murray managed to squeek out a win in this one with approx. 36% of the vote. The lowest percentage of all the winners.
Liberal - Joyce Murray - 10,155 votes - 36.1%
Conservative - Deborah Meredith - 10,004 votes - 35.5%

Desnethé--Missinippi--Churchill River was the one I thought could go to any of the parties. The Conservative, Rob Clarke, managed to pull off the win. He should be thanking Dion big time for this win. I am sure that Dion appointing a candidate for the libs was the death nail.

So Dion, how is that appointing thing working for ya? You are now 0 for 2... Keep up the good work! I'm positive PM Harper would love to see you appoint a whole bunch more before the next election. He would love those extra seats in the house....

The people decide in 4 bi-elections tomorrow...
Dion needs strong showing in March 17 byelections

Let the judgment begin...

I'm in love

I went to the Sportsman show on Saturday. It was not very impressive by any means. It seems to get worse each year. I doubt that I will waste my time or money on it next year.

On a more positive note...

As I was wondering around looking at all the boats, I ran into the lady of my dreams. She is practical, easy on the eyes, loves the water, loves to fish and goes topless on a regular basis. A package I can hardly resist!

I can picture me spending A LOT of time with her...

Pesky Varmants

It's beginning to feel like Groundhog Day on Parliament Hill.

Two more confidence votes are scheduled Thursday, during which the Liberals will emerge to see the shadow of their electoral prospects and scurry back underground, presaging at least six more weeks of frosty partisanship.

Are the Liberals scurrying back underground, or are they being beaten back into the holes from which they came?

Idle Threats

We have said that we would not bring the government down at this time but come April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November or December, look out. Oh wait, April is not good. April would be foolish. There is a holiday in May right? oh and Mothers day too. June? oh right, fathers day, can't wreck fathers day. July... damn another holiday whats it called again? August has heritage day... thats important to all the immigrants. That won't do. September won't work. That would piss off all the workers. October it is... of 2009 that is, the 19th to be exact!... That will show Harper and his minions!


Leftist speak

The five most common words in any speech or article made or written by a leftist are: may, might, could, possibly and perhaps.

In this one article the word "could" appears 8 times. "May" and "Possibilty" both appear once.

Considering that the whole article only contains 456 words in 16 paragraphs, thats quite the feat. Over half of the paragraphs in the article declare that something "could" happen. They do not state that they "will" happen yet the headline reads...

"Climate change paves way for rise in infectious diseases"

There is no "doubt" in that headline. It implies that infectious diseases "will" rise due to climate change. The report makes no such claim at all.

Here's your homework for the night. Take any of the IPCC reports, it really does not matter which one. Copy and paste all or parts of it into your favorite word possessor and count up how many times these 5 words appear.

Nothing is certain for a leftist. Everything is left vague for good reason. It makes it easier to back peddle...

Lets get Alberta.
Alberta won't like it, they hate everything.
They like it?
That must mean its bad!

Thats some great science there I tell ya.
Give me a break already...

You can thank Stephane Dion, and the Liberal Party of Canada for that.

Although you may not agree with his party, Peter Van Loan is 100% correct in stating...

“The failure of almost all Liberal MPs to vote is a clear abdication of their responsibility and an appalling dereliction of their duty to the Canadians who voted for them.”

“Why vote for the Liberal party when the Liberal party won't stand up and vote for you?”

Dion, a closet secessionist

Well not anymore...

PQ leader, Pauline Marois, wants to
scrap referendum requirement.

[...] Marois's plan was called a "good move" by Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion.

"I think a responsible secessionist leader should not rush to a referendum, should first build strong support, a clear majority for separation and once it's done it's time to go to a referendum."

So, to add to the list of Liberal imperfections, which include:
A)No spine
B)No brain
C)No Balls
D)no leader

We can now add the following...

Foot in Mouth Disease...

O Bomb A

It has been a bad week for Obama. His campaign seems to be in self destruct mode...

First he is caught in tales of "political maneuvering" that probably cost him support in Ohio if not everywhere.

Then we have one of his advisers resign after she calls Clinton a "monster". Her Iraq comments did not help much either.

While in Wisconsin Wyoming, Obama defended his readiness to lead. He does know how to answer a phone. I guess it is a start...

I would not be surprised at all if Senator Obama calls up PM Harper to borrow some muzzles for the remainder of his campaign.


The road to the left

More socialism, thats what Canada needs. Cause it works so well! If only we could be as progressive as those dang Norwegians...

Turning back the hands of time

Stephane Dion, in French tradition, waves a white flag and returns to November 2005 so that he can hand back the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada to Paul Martin. That, or his new strategy is to make Canadians feel soooooooo sorry for him, that perhaps the Liberals might get some sympathy votes if Dion ever finds enough courage to actually bring down the conservative government. Is this man not the most pathetic political leader you have ever witnessed in your life? It just gets stranger by the minute over there in Ottawa. Is there something in the water? There must be, as even Harper is not the man he use to be.


Pipe Dreams

UN agency lashes Canada over crack-pipe programs

[...] "The board calls upon the government of Canada to end programs such as the supply of 'safer crack kits,' including the mouthpiece and screen components of pipes for smoking crack," the control board's report says.

Government-funded safe-injection sites, too, violate the UN Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs, the board says. [..]

I am no fan of the UN by any means. However, this time I am on their side. So-called "safe injection sites" and "safer crack kits" are far from SAFE or SAFER. Contrary to what the Ontario Health Ministry, the World Health Organization or Jack McCarthy says.
[...] "The evidence shows — and this is evidence that's supported by the World Health Organization — … that you really can prevent the spread of infectious diseases through safe inhalation or safe injection sites," said Laurel Ostfield, a spokesperson for Ontario Health Minister George Smitherman. [...]

Guess none of these fine folks read my post... Safe injection sites my ass! in regards to a study that shows a 250 per cent jump in MRSA from 2000 to 2006 in people who are injecting drugs...
But then seeing this is their JOB, you would think they would KNOW about this little study....


I found Stephane Dion a home

It is in Norway.

Imagine you're one of the 13 men on this all-male board of a large company and are told five of you must go to be replaced by women. Unlikely? Not in Norway, where they're enforcing a law that 40% of directors must be female. [...]

Might not find a job, but he will definitely fit right in...

Global Warming Pictorial

Back then... everyone will remember this one. Those poor polar bears that were going to drown... so sad... Everyone panic!!!

After the record breaking cold winter of 2007 - 2008. Melting ice is no longer the problem...

And it is not just the polar bears that are suffering as this fox can testify to!

These two are not just monkeying around. Thats the real deal covering them. They do look a tad cold don't they...

I sure am glad I never fell for the whole global warming scam. I would hate to have to be the one telling my children of promises broken...

Finally, this one just seems to some this winter up quite nicely....


Given the Evidence

Justice Danièle Tremblay-Lamer has ordered an environmental review panel to justify its decision to allow a $7 billion oilsands project in Alberta's north to go ahead.

[...] "Given the amount of greenhouse gases that will be emitted and given the evidence that the targets will not address the problem of greenhouse gas emissions, it was incumbent upon the Panel to provide a justification for its recommendation on this particular issue," Tremblay-Lamer wrote. [...]

What "evidence" does Justice Danièle Tremblay-Lamer have that the problem of greenhouse gas emissions, specifically CO2, is in fact a problem? What LAWS are currently in place in regards to greenhouse gas emissions that would justify Justice Danièle Tremblay-Lamer decision? I can give you the answer to both of those questions... NONE! This is clearly a case of a judge with an agenda. An ill informed agenda at that. It is no different than a judge convicting a person for something they may commit, perhaps, well maybe, at some point in time, in the future, be considered a crime. How ridiculous is that? May I remind Justice Danièle Tremblay-Lamer that the debate over AGW is not over. It has just finally begun in the mainstream of things. The so-called "deniers", like myself are starting to be heard and more often than not, the science is swaying to prove us right. Seems as though, strange as it may sound, that the earths climate is controlled by that big ball of fire in the sky and not us humans. Go figure...

Perhaps Justice Danièle Tremblay-Lamer should sit in on some of the seminars at The 2008 International Conference on Climate Change. She may learn a thing or two.

Shock and ummmm SHOCK!

I didn't see this one coming... So much for the "CHANGE" campaigns...

Updated... 3/4/08

Seats won.........popular vote

PC... 73 72 ................. 53%

Lib... 8 9................. 26%

NDP... 2 .................. 9%

Other .................. 12%

Only 41% of eligible Albertan's felt it important enough to get off their asses and vote. 59% have no right to complain about the government that they had handed to them.

Which begs the question statement...
Bye bye Kevin, Brian and this one hurts... Paul. You can now join Stephane Dion in the "we are not leader's" bin.

Jeff Healey

Rest in peace Jeff. You were a great inspiration...
