Back To The Dark Ages: Top French Weatherman Fired Over Climate Change Book

November 3, 2015

Apparently in France, “liberty, equality, fraternity” does not include the liberty to question dominant opinions. Equality does include equal rights of conscience and intellect. And fraternity ends when you question established dogma. Belief in man-caused global warming isn’t science: it’s a cult that demand unquestioning obedience, or you will be punished.

Watts Up With That?

From: France 24, 1 November 2015 (h/t to The GWPF)
A popular weatherman announced Saturday evening he has been sacked by leading French news channel France Télévisions for publishing a book which accused top climate change experts of misleading the world about the threat of global warming.

Philippe Verdier, a household name in France for his daily weather reports on the France 2 channel, announced in an online video that he had received a letter of dismissal.

“My book ‘Climate Investigation’ was published one month ago. It got me banned from the air waves,” said the weatherman, who was put “on leave” from the TV station on October 12.

“I received this letter this morning and decided to open it in front of you because it concerns everybody- in the name of freedom of expression and freedom of information.”

His announcement comes four days after France Télévisions chief Delphine…

The ‘Cult’ of Climate Change (née Global Warming)

August 26, 2015

There’s a reason I refer global warming alarmists as “cultists” and their movement as the “Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming.” Click through for more.

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Ari.H.

Global warming has become a religioJosh-97-percent-littlesn. This is the opinion of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever , Prof. Richard Lindzen, and many others. Climate change alarmism has a surprising number of attributes of a medieval or even ancient religion. Nevertheless, real religions have some pre-requisites, like a tradition spanning at least few generations. So the proper name for climate alarmism is a cult. And these are the telltale attributes:

1) Climate alarmists pretend to possess indisputable truths about the past, present, and future. From minute details of the paleoclimate to the world state 200 years in the future, alarmists know everything.

2) The alarmist movement stubbornly refuses to debate its dogma, calling it “settled science” and viciously attacking its critics. The attacks are not limited to name calling but include prohibiting scientific research that contradicts this dogma. Significant figures within the movement…

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before

May 19, 2015

Maybe it’s magic to them: if they say it often enough, it will come true! (Hey, I’ve always said it was a cult…)

cosmoscon

The Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) cult is getting desperate now that their dire predictions of global warming are coming under intense scrutiny since the Earth’s temperature anomalies have been flat for over 18 years.

Instead of confronting the inconvenient truth of this data and reworking their flawed models they instead choose to double down on the same tired predictions that just aren’t coming true.

From NPR:

antarctic ice

That’s a nice prediction you have there but unfortunately the data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center the Antarctic sea ice extent show that for the past 2 years the sea ice down there has been ABOVE the 2 standard deviation level of the average from 1981 to 2010.

antarctic ice 2

The AGW cult is beyond pathetic.

Global Warming Protestors in the Snow

April 13, 2015

Once again showing Nature has a sense of both humor and irony, and Climate Cultists have neither.

Watts Up With That?

Thousands of protestors, mostly dressed in high tech nylon and plastic cold weather gear, tramped through the snow in Quebec City last Saturday, to protest against global warming.

According to The Globe and Mail;

The organizers aimed to press provincial and territorial leaders to turn the tide on oil sands expansion and the corresponding development of pipelines.

“They were just really, really there to send a message to get the premiers to focus on climate because it is an important thing to focus on and it’s just not on the political agenda right now,” said Ms. Hassan.

Red-clad protestors formed a thermometer to send a message about climate change. Meanwhile, #ActionClimat was trending on Twitter.

Premiers from across Canada are set to hold a summit on Tuesday…

The Green Cult

March 1, 2010

I’ve argued before that, for many, the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming is a more of a religion or a cult than a reasoned approach to problems facing the Earth: the attempts to stifle argument by declaring a revealed truth, thus turning theory into dogma; treating those who disagree as heretics who need to be silenced or even destroyed; and the whole aura of punishment for Man’s sins against the Earth that suffuses AGW theory.

Today’s Telegraph brings an extreme example of the cult’s irrationality, as two parents in Argentina shoot their children and kill themselves out of fear of global warming:

A seven-month-old girl survived for three days alone with a bullet in her chest after being shot by her parents as part of a suicide pact over their fears about global warming.

Francisco Lotero, 56, and Miriam Coletti, 23, shot their daughter and her toddler brother before killing themselves.

Their son Francisco, two, died instantly after being hit in the back.

However, their unnamed daughter cheated death after the bullet from her father’s handgun missed her vital organs.

Tragic and mad, and yet I wouldn’t be surprised to see more examples of desperation on the part of true believers as their church continues to collapse.

RELATED: On a much less dramatic note, the Cult’s High Priest, Al Gore, has come out of hiding in the wake of Climategate to pronounce anathema on skeptics and assert that the science is still settled:

It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.

But, of course, the (revealed) truth is that we are still on the way to disaster, in spite of all the evidence of flawed research, junk science, and scientific corruption. Read the whole article; it’s a masterful reassertion of a fatally challenged creed, and take note especially of this sentence:

From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.

One can only be redeemed if one has first sinned. Tell me again this isn’t a religion?

Jules Crittenden dismantles the Goracle’s ravings.  (via Sister Toldjah) Roger Kimball calls it the Al Gore Comedy Hour. Maggie’s Farm talks more about “redemption by law.” At American Thinker, Rick Moran rips into the Goracle’s article, ending by calling him a megalomaniac.

The Goracle, Chief Priest of the Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming

I’ve often referred to the more enthusiastic proponents of the supposed dangers of man-made climate change as the Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming, because, well, it seems more a matter of faith with them than anything based on empirical science.

I was ahead of my time.

Climate change belief given same legal status as religion

An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.

In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that “a belief in man-made climate change … is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations”.

The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

The decision regards Tim Nicholson, former head of sustainability at property firm Grainger plc, who claims he was made redundant in July 2008 due to his “philosophical belief about climate change and the environment”.

In March, employment judge David Heath gave Mr Nicholson permission to take the firm to tribunal over his treatment.

But Grainger challenged the ruling on the grounds that green views were political and based on science, as opposed to religious or philosophical in nature.

John Bowers QC, representing Grainger, had argued that adherence to climate change theory was “a scientific view rather than a philosophical one”, because “philosophy deals with matters that are not capable of scientific proof.”

That argument has now been dismissed by Mr Justice Burton, who last year ruled that the environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore was political and partisan.

The decision allows the tribunal to go ahead, but more importantly sets a precedent for how environmental beliefs are regarded in English law.

No kidding. Next step, a Law Against Green Heresy! No burning at the stake, however. Too big a carbon footprint….  Silly
