The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Science and the Politics of Fear

Yessssssss! Academe (in a very conservative spot) is questioning AWG (Anthropogenic Global Warming). A nice piece on how a professor is showing An Inconvenient Truth and The Great Global Warming Swindle.
James Wanliss, a space physicist who teaches at Embry-Riddle, showed students the two films in an honors course titled "The Politics and Science of Fear" because he said more and more the public is being sold one side of an issue with many dimensions.
Yesssss! There is more than one dimension to this thing. And Al Gore is the most one-dimensional man in America. I'm waiting for some climatologist like Roy Spencer to carve Al Gore into laughing stock on national TV.

Once again notice: On one side you have a bunch of Hollywood people that repeat the words written for them. On the other hand you have PhDs. Do the math. Look at this from the article:
Penelope Canan, a professor of sociology at the University of Central Florida, leans toward Gore's way of thinking.

"There's really no doubt that human activities have altered the global carbon cycle and the natural balances that have thickened the blanket of greenhouse gases that have kept our planet like Baby Bear's soup for thousands of years," she said in an e-mail. "I am certain that the data presented by Al Gore was digested by hundreds of thousands of research hours and peer-reviewed data by the world's leading scientists."

Sam Rabin, a freshman activist at Stetson University who helped screen "An Inconvenient Truth" on his campus, said many policymakers avoid difficult decisions that may come from carbon dioxide emission limitations, while journalists ramp up the skeptics' arguments in the name of balance.

"This is horribly misguided and counterproductive," Rabin wrote in an e-mail. "There is virtually no scientific debate about global warming or its cause."
So while many physicists and climatologists still are skeptical, the sociologist leans toward the crisis argument and the student activist is certain there is "virtually no scientific debate". Sort of like when there was no debate about the flatness of the earth and the fact that the sun rotated around the earth.

Follow the money. The scientists that are sure there is AGW (global warming) are getting grant money to try and convince you. They are loyal to the hand that feeds them. Liberals want more control of your life.
