Guy who owns airline urges action against greenhouse gases (degree of difficulty: one of those actions can’t be shutting down his airline)

This crap is REALLY getting old, especially coming from a guy who runs a f*#king airline and is trying to develop a fleet of suborbital rockets for the purpose of space vacations for hypocritical celebrity eco-douchebags:

Nothing says “death by global warming is imminent” than surrounding yourself with snowmen.

Branson must have made his way to Switzerland on horseback like Al Gore and Pharrell Williams.

‘Green energy’ metaphor alert: Wind turbine keels over in strong 15 mph winds

This wreckage should now be relocated to Al Gore’s front yard:

Looks like it instinctively attempted to form the shape of a hockey stick.

The turbine had been spotted drinking earlier in the day, so maybe that had something to do with this:

A large wind turbine worth £500,000 mysteriously collapsed on an Irish mountainside during light winds.

The 262ft tall structure was found buckled and destroyed at Screggagh wind farm on Murley Mountain in County Tyrone, Fintona.

An investigation has now been launched into what caused the huge structure to collapse amid the sound of grinding metal, which could be heard as far away as seven miles.

It’s possible the thing was sabotaged by local birds.

Shocking! All-electric cars worse for the environment than gas-powered vehicles

Thanks for nothing, DiCaprio!

Where was the media on this a few years ago when the Obama administration and Department of Energy were lying their asses off about electric cars so they could grease their cronies with billions of taxpayer dollars? It’s not like it’s “breaking news,” but the MSM has to pretend it is:

People who own all-electric cars in places where coal generates the power are actually making the air dirtier, according to a new study. The key is the electricity’s source. If it comes from coal, the electric cars produce 3.6 times more soot and smog deaths than gas, because of the pollution made in generating the electricity, according to the study published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They also are significantly worse at heat-trapping carbon dioxide that worsens global warming, it found.

The study examines environmental costs for cars’ entire life cycle, including where power comes from and the environmental effects of building batteries. Coal produces 39 percent of the country’s electricity, according to the Department of Energy, with West Virginia, Wyoming, Ohio, North Dakota and Illinois with the highest percentage of coal-fired electricity.

The study finds that overall, all-electric vehicles cause 86 percent more deaths from air pollution than do cars powered by regular gasoline. But if natural gas produces the electricity? Half as many deaths as gasoline cars.

But instead of admitting that, in the current reality, electric cars aren’t feasible economically or environmentally, the green shammers simply “solve” that problem by trying to force coal plants out of business when there’s no replacement for the power they supply.

The sacrifices some people will endure to save Mother Gaia

The people who don’t read the free t-shirt before putting it on are the catalysts for the best jokes:

Let’s all go help her find the letter “e” that, because of climate change no doubt, fell out of the second position in the word “f_ast.”

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi wedgies noted global warming nutburger Bill McKibben

The wind-up:

And the pitch:

HAHAHA! Hopefully the phrase “parasitic climatic ambulance chasing” enters our lexicon on a more regular basis. That’s awesome.

‘The science is settled’ AGW study ‘update’ of the day

This is the title of a story at Salon.com that many global warmist Gore-bots are pointing to: 10,883 out of 10,885 scientific articles agree: Global warming is happening, and humans are to blame

10,883 out of 10,885 studies agree with Al Gore? Wow, that’s a lot.

From the article:

Powell went through every scientific study published in a peer-review journal during the calendar year 2013, finding 10,885 in total (more on his methodology here). Of those, a mere two rejected anthropogenic global warming.

Wow, did he really wade through over 10,000 peer reviewed studies?

Check out this “update” way at the bottom of the story:

On his methodology, Powell notes, he only verified that two out of the 10,885 articles he found concluded that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is wrong: “It is a safe assumption that virtually all the other 10883 do not reject — that is, they accept — AGW but I can’t say for sure that each one of them does.”

Ha! It’s a “safe assumption” because it’s what he believes (or wants) to be true. Some science, eh?

Imagine Einstein “proving” a theory by writing ten percent of it on a chalkboard and then saying “it’s a safe assumption the rest works out the way I said so just shut up and believe it.”

Freezing to death from global warming

Save us, Al Gore!

The snip below is from 2010, but we’ll be hearing more of it from the warmists:

The explanation that is gaining currency among climate scientists is that low levels of Arctic sea ice during the summer are causing more heat to be absorbed in the Arctic during the fall, and changing atmospheric circulation patterns, driving cold Arctic air into Europe and the Eastern United States and funneling warm air up into the Arctic regions.

This warm Arctic-cold continents pattern is likened to leaving the refrigerator door open. The room gets colder but the fridge warms up.

The “refrigerator door” explanation is such a crock. If the refrigerator door is open, it’s still -30 below zero in the freakin’ fridge. How is that?

Noted climate scientist Al Sharpton debunks Fox News debunking of global warming

Just when I feel confident about the position I’ve taken on an issue, along comes Al Sharpton to let me know I’ve chosen wisely:

That’s not a lab coat Sharpton’s wearing — it’s a lace-less straight jacket.

“Just because it snows in winter doesn’t mean the planet isn’t getting warmer.” Remember that in a few months when just because it’s hot in summer is evidence the planet is getting warmer.

After a Good Cry Over the Latest IPCC Report, Global Warming Alarmist Pledges to Quit Flying and Never Have Kids

A voluntary thinning of the future gene pool of potential Gorebots is just alright with me.

From the UK Daily Mail via Weasel Zippers:

A meteorologist who has covered weather for the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and is considering having a vasectomy.

He also vowed to stop flying after the world’s recent climate-change report made him cry.

Eric Holthaus was reacting to the findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which released a report on Friday that found it was ‘extremely likely’ that humans are causing warming trends seen in the last several decades.

On Friday afternoon the weatherman tweeted: ‘No children, happy to go extinct, which in and of itself, carries a certain sadness. #IPCC’

His next tweet said: ‘Its a very emotional decision. Mixed feelings. adios babies?’

If he wept because of a climate change report the chances are his testosterone level is too low to father children anyway.

Here’s a dramatization of the man’s reaction after reading the IPCC report:
