The Last Word on Gore Creating the Internet - pssst - he didn't

Just Came Across this in Wired from 1999 HE IS SUCH A LIAR!!!
Then came the kicker: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

Preliminary discussions of how the ARPANET would be designed began in 1967, and a request for proposals went out the following year. In 1969, the Defense Department commissioned the ARPANET.

Gore was 21-years-old at the time. He wasn't even done with law school at Vanderbilt University. It would be eight more years before Gore would be elected to the US House of Representatives as a freshman Democrat with scant experience in passing legislation, let alone ambitious proposals.

Al Gore is Such a Liar.... His "Carbon Offsets" not so Green

A lot of talk lately is wondering how Al Gore can have a net worth of 100 mill, yet claim to have donated all his profits from his ecotistical Global Warming campaign to non-profits. Everyone knows he's lying.
Lately, the story is how he buys his carbon offsets from a company he himself owns.
This is old news, posted in many places a year and a half ago.
But what we did when we first heard the story was check out the recipient and found out that regardless of what they claim to do, what they don't do is invest in green things.
We published the following in December of 2007.

The Chairman of Generation Investment Management is Al Gore. Others have reported how in essence, Al Gore is therefore buying Carbon Offsets from himself.

However, the other big story is that is that GIM is not in the Carbon Credits Business!!
Al Gore's Carbon Offsets are being invested in banks, manufacturers (even a few polluters in the bunch). His GIM is purely an investment company that owns shares in the following companies (not a green company in the bunch and none that plant trees or develop windpower sites).
Aflac Inc - Insurance
Aquantive Inc - Digital Marketing
Autodesk Inc - Cad Systems
Becton Dickinson - Medical Supplies
Blackbaud Inc - Fundraising Software
General Electric Co - Conglomerate
Greenhill & Co Inc - Investment Bank
Johnson Ctls Inc - Engineering
Laboratory Corp - Gene Testing
Metabolix Inc - Bio-Plastics
Northern Tr Corp - Bank
Nuveen Invts Inc - Investment Bank
Staples Inc - Office Products
Sysco Corp - Restaurant Food Products
Techne Corp - Biotech Testing Products
Ubs Ag - Bank
Vca Antech Inc - Animal Hospitals
Waters Corp - Lab Testing
Whole Foods Mkt Inc - Food Retailer

I was not surprised to learn this...

It Was Only a Matter of Time - Swine Flu Caused by Climate Change

According to Steven Sanderson, head of the Wildlife Conservation Society, “even minor (climate) disturbances can have far reaching consequences on diseases”. He added, “The term ‘climate change’ conjures images of melting ice caps and rising sea levels that threaten coastal cities and nations, but just as important is how increasing temperatures and fluctuating precipitation levels will change the distribution of dangerous pathogens”.
What is particularly special about this attribution is that both of these fearsome things are bogus. 160 deaths is a slow murder week in Mexico. And thousands of folks die every year from the Flu. What's special about this one. Last I heard, it's so mild it's hard to know if you even have it. And anyone with half a clue knows that the climate changes all the time (but not all that much to cause any harm).

I guess it can be added to the list of thousands of other things that are caused by AGW

Who's the Global Warming Expert - Ashley Judd or Fred Singer?

This morning I noted in the local Daily how Ashley Judd is fighting Global Warming because she had seen signs of same on her Tennessee farm. (This despite the fact that Global Warming has not occurred - it is only forecasted to be likely to occur).Temps have increased by less than 1% in the last 100 years.

I wondered if lithesome Ashley, best known for being cute got more or less attention for her statement about AGW then, say, one of the absolute experts on the topic. At the University of Kentucky, she majored in French and minored in anthropology, art history, theater and women's studies.

Fred Singer (note - can't use wikipedia for his Bio because his entry is corrupted by a Wiki editor who is with the Green Party.)
"Singer received a B.E.E in Electrical engineering from Ohio State University in 1943; an A.M. in physics from Princeton in 1944; and a Ph.D in physics from Princeton in 1948. [1] He received an honorary Doctorate of Science from Ohio State University in 1970. [3] "As a reviewer of IPCC reports, he shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore."

Guess who has received more "News" items associated with AGW.
I bet you already know.

Dicaprio and Lenin Separated at Birth

Beyond the obvious likeness between the weakass actor who wants to be really rich while all of us are really poor and the weakass communist who murdered tens of millions of people . . . is this. He gets an award from a successor to Vladimir Ilich Lenin.
It's actually kinda funny.
Did he walk to the ceremony or take a private jet.

What is April 22nd?

Earth Day.
Lenin's Birthday.
Of course not - those who would have us give all our wealth to them like Lenin a lot.

The Star Shows Purpose of Earth Day

They have an "Entertainment" Reporter covering the story:

Global Warming?? Where?

April is a key month for me.
I was born on April 8 and golf season has promise of actually starting.
Over the course of my fifty odd years (and reportedly cooling and warming periods) not once have I been able to play golf on my birthday.
Not even in 1998 when we were basking in the warmth of el Nino.
Although every year I look to be able to do so.
This tells me something simple - that climate hasn't significantly changed.

Does Obama Have Any Idea What He Is Doing Here?

Could you imagine Bush (either) smiling with Saddam, Clinton with Milosovic, Reagan with Khomeini, Carter with Arafat (okay they were buddies), Kennedy with Castro, Eisenhower with Kruschchev, Truman with Toto, Roosevelt with Hitler?

Lush Saving Seals

Lush is one of those mall stores that you smell long before you see.
A toxic, loud cloying odor that would frighten away honey bees.
But my lovely girl really likes it for its "Bombs" (I rake the flower beds when she's soaking in it".
But blessing of all blessing she is.
At the Eaton Centre, we smell the store while about 1/4 mile and make the trek.
There's a big sign, "SAVE THE SEALS". Kate walks in, picks out her bomb and is asked by a young thing if "she would like to contribute to saving the seals?"
Kate scowled and said, "no, I came to buy cosmetics."
The poor young thing looked like a petard was hoisted right in front of her generous, but young nose. (I wondered how someone with such an untrained and prominent probiscus could work in such a smelly place.) My girl came back and said, "damn, I wish I had my fur coat."
