It’s one embarrassment after another for the UN and IPCC, as their latest report, published in 2007 is further exposed to public scrutiny.
Now we find out, not only that the ‘glacial shrinking’ data is erroneous, but that it was based upon a 1999 interview with a single glaciologist, in Climbing magazine as mentioned previously here, as well as…………a student’s ‘dissertation’ for the equivalent of a master’s degree in Geology.
Pharmer (having done research which is published in peer reviewed journals), notes that it’s possible for the above mentioned collections of glacial melting anecdotes to have been reformatted, re-analysed and published in other forms with completely different conclusions. The IPCC might never have noticed, since its main political function appears to have been advocacy of global cooling.
Older pro lifers remember assurances from the abortion proponents, decades ago, that the fears that women would feel coercion to abort in the events of pregnancy complications and untoward fetal diagnoses were unfounded. But we knew what would happen. The time has arrived when women are openly criticized for allowing disabled babies to be born. Ninety percent of babies diagnosed prior to birth with Down syndrome are aborted. Sarah Palin is one example of those who are roundly criticized for not killing their babies prior to birth.
A very thin story describes O’Keefe and three other men involved in a caper at the office of Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. O’Keefe is said to have been recording the activities of two others dressed as telephone repairmen as they handled a phone in the office and asked for access to controls in a telephone closet. Little else is known about what actually transpired.
The primary result so far is that OKeefe has gotten mainstream media exposure for his work in bringing the malfeasance of ACORN to light. This coverage will continue as the Louisiana legal system proceeds with the investigations and trial.
It appears that America will not be able to forget those films by O’Keefe and Giles, showing ACORN employees directing them how to run child prostitution businesses in several different cities.
Some curious information about Sen Landrieu might also come to light during legal proceedings should the Senator not ask for the charges to be dropped.
Others arrested in conjunction with this activity are Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, (the two ‘telephone repairmen’) and Stan Dai, who was said to be involved in planning.
Robert Flanagan is the son of son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan.
With more residences than the Kerrys and the McCains combined, Ellie Light is a most prolific supporter of Obama nationwide. Her output is being tracked most energetically at Patterico’s Pontifications, in a post that lists 73 letters to newspapers in the US and around the world, with many more added in the comment section.
Suspicion is cast upon Ms. Light, suggesting that she’s a paid perma-campaigner, trying to explain the travails of the commander in chief to the nation. Many of us have seen the like camped out in political blogs and chatrooms for so many hours per day, that they had to be getting a salary for the work.
Pharmer’s guess is that Obama has to pay for his plastic grass roots.
because he wants to. When there are no more political points to score, we can see the genuineness of George W Bush in the way he spends his personal time.
Life Centers, a non-profit Christian Crisis pregnancy center will be the beneficiary of funds generated by this event, to be held on on April 15th. Helping this ministry remove business from Planned Parenthood is a fine way to forget tax day.
Grammy award winner Sandi Patty, will join the former president in addressing the gathering at Conseco Fieldhouse, in Indianapolis at 7pm.
If the statement is wrong, then the reputations of teachers have been ruined. If the statement is correct, then those teachers not guilty of abuse are smeared by the actions of those involved, while the abusers themselves have escaped criminal prosecution.
A report on Glacial Melting put out by the The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been exposed as erroneous, and badly done.
It appears that the area of glaciation in the Himalayas has been greatly exaggerated in the report, and that massive melting of non-existent glacier bulk has been predicted by 2035.
Most interesting is the silence of people who immediately recognized the discrepancies in the report, which have only recently been brought to light.
