We have a new environmental catchphrase from Al Gore now: Sustainable Capitalism. More importantly, what does this actually have to do with the environment? Yes, he’s mentioning that it’s deflecting attention from the
global cooling global warming climate change what hyperbole are we on again press the boom button climate crisis, but how does corporate reporting reform have anything to do with, say, endangered species?
How many environmental emergencies is this now? There’s another one heating up due to the bird blenders, uh, windfarm operators, and frankly I’ve lost count. Heck, I make fun of the ginned-up panic. But back to Al Gore.
Guess that whole Climategate thing put a dent in his income.

Spoofing AGW hysterics was amusing at one point, but their recent works haven’t left much room to spoof. This latest one is no exception. Hot Air has the ad, but if you don’t want to click through, here’s the summary. It’s basically a picture of a little girl on a melting block of ice with a noose around her neck.
This, so soon after pressing the boom button? This is a bunch of people trying desperately to find some new shock tactic that works after Climategate. It must be driving them mad to watch what might have been their moment of capitalism destroying triumph slip through their fingers.
This isn’t going to get them anywhere outside of their own crowd of believers, but it will expose what they really are to everyone else. My guess? Net loss of what little credibility they had left in the end, though in the short term the more emotionally driven eco-zealots will be energized by it.
Either way, it’s another sick turn.
I don’t often link to other pieces in Satire, Humor, and Dementia, but this one is worth it. It’s an absolutely first-rate piece of satire regarding global warming and Iceland. Knowing how ridiculous all things global warming can get, how long do you suppose it will be before someone does think of something like this for real…
After today’s news, what room is there for doubt?
The British House of Commons Science and Technology committee has cleared the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit of any wrongdoing. In fact, it was so self-evident to them that it only took a day’s testimony for them to confirm it. I mean seriously, people. If you can’t trust a committee full of politicians who have a veritable gold mine of a power grab waiting if the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam regains its credibility, who can you trust?
The only thing that could possibly make my day any more complete is if “maverick” John McCain donned his not-so-secret environmental superhero identity, Captain Chipmunk, and added his weight to the committee findings. He and his sidekick, the Pomeranian Lindsey Graham, could fly to the nearest press conference and chime in on this. So put away your skepticism everybody. We’re all watermelons now!
