    Such broadcass are all very well, but how will it get the message across to the person-in-the-street ?

    I mean a single issue radio station – Who will be listening ?

    Great for preaching to the converted & rallying the troops, but how does it reach the people who need to understand , the mass of voters who can make a difference ?

    Joe(#5)…

    As long as the “person-in-the-street” can understand the technology of how to access these interviews, I would hope that they may attract not just the choir and the troops, but also those who have heard on the grapevine that the mainstream media’s presentation may be off-beam, and may see this as an opportunity to introduce themselves to broader perspective. Could be?

    Steve, Ross, please excuse my ignorance (no defense, I know).
    How could I have forgotten.
    It’s the inter-web “thingy” that’s going to make the difference, because these broadcasts can be accessed and replayed at will.

    Was it not an excerpt from one of LM’s very own lectures in Canada, going viral on You Tube that brought us to where we are today.

    Joe Veragio @10,

    Greenpeace is raving about deniers again? I’m shocked to the core about it! What could they possibly have to complain about?

    Actually I wonder how they expected that no one would oppose them for the last 20 years. It’s particularly comical that they name Singer as a “serial denier” without bothering to define what that term even means. I wonder what kind of Cereal he denies. Could it be Cheerios or maybe corn flakes? Oh, I know, I’ll bet its oatmeal!

    Well, bad pun. But Greenpeace deserves every bit of mocking they can get. The only thing they know about climate science is how to spell those two words.

    Long live the “serial deniers”, whatever that may mean. If it tics off Greenpeace it must be good.

    Good grief! There are 60,000 people in New Zealand making regular donations to Greenpeace? That’s 1.5% of the entire population. Outrageous. Well, I’m proud to say that I don’t know any of them (as far as I know!).

    janama @15,

    Could this quote from your Greenpeace link possibly say something about the problem?

    “I’d expect an ethical environmental organisation to behave better than this,” he said.

    But this kind of thing has been going on for years now. If I buy antivirus software or other applications with a regular update service they all want to automatically renew my update subscription every year. And they just set it up that way then tell me about it and, oh yes, as an afterthought, if you don’t like it you can jump through this hoop to get it cancelled. It’s not ethical and it’s a lazy business practice. Only one company earned the right to use my credit card for their monthly service charge and that’s because they told me ahead of doing it that it was their preferred method of payment.

    00

  • #
    Steve Schapel

    Roy,

    Automatic renewal is one thing, and I’m sure you have a good point there. But in this case it’s automatically increasing a donation amount, with the onus on the donor to notify if they don’t want the increase. I think this is in a differenct category than a service renewal.

    1) Anyone know exactly how many hrs behind Sydney central DST is?
    2) Whales and Chagos Islands etc deserve my funding but when it came to cancelling my subscription to Greenpeace it took several goes. In Au they have duplicate offices so one has to cancel at both (but they didn’t tell me that). They were clearly not interested in hearing my concerns about their climate position.
    The folks I dealt with reminded me of the fanatics I blockaded the Franklin R with back in ’82. Great kids but professional demonstrators against anything that was going down.

    Seeing how the AGW community is acting as if they have succeeded in denying they have any problems, I can only think that sweet poetic justice would see a nice fat file of GISS or Manniac internal documents leaked out in the week or two.
    And before our conspiracy theory whack job AGW true believers think I am in on it: Nope. Only wish I was.
    By the way, this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/True-believer_syndrome
    describes to a ‘T’ how AGW true believers overcome the cognitive dissonance of the evidence of fraud and bad data conflicting with their faith.
    AGW is going to boil down to the first internet age popular delusion. Fortunately, so far, its main costs have been opportunity, not direct.
    We may get lucky and have it disassemble before too much damage is done.

    It’s about 25C here in Ottawa. Just wonderful, my golf course opened today a record earliest, lots of moisture in the ground and rain coming early next week. Can’t remember a better Easter. Bye the bye the artic ice is back to normal but that is “weather” as carefully pointed out by Environment Canada. Just 1400 klicks west it’s cold and snowy. Anybody want to guess which thermostat will be used in the next IPCC report? Looking forward to the online talks.

    Roy Hogue

    Steve @18,

    My only point was that the practice of setting up automatic renewal without asking first is quite wide spread as well as with your example where people chose automatic withdrawal and then were surprised at a big price increase. I apologize if it seemed to minimize your complaint. But in both cases I am not at all in agreement with it.

    I think the two are just opposite sides of the same coin and it’s a coin we don’t need hanging around our necks when we do business with any company or organization.

    Sorry for the spilled coffee. I didn’t think the pun was all that funny but I wanted to mock Greenpeace a bit and that was all that came to mind. It’s just a little too arrogant to act like no one has the right to oppose them.

    That link is very interesting. Greenpeace is in a snit over biofuels? How awful! I guess foolishness does catch up with its practitioners now and then.

    Actually I hope they succeed since I agree with them on this one. It’s absolutely stupid to turn good food crop land over to growing corn for ethanol, much less destroying untouched land to do it. It does nothing to help air pollution or global warming.

    Folks,

    John RAy of Greenie watch posted alink to theis Greenpeace Statement

    “http://weblog.greenpeace.org/climate/2010/04/will_the_real_climategate_plea_1.html”


    The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism.

    If you’re one of those who believe that this is not just necessary but also possible, speak to us. Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like.

    If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:

    We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.

    And we be many, but you be few.”

    So it looks like the battle lines are being drawn.

    Incidentally

    “And his parting thought:

    A political realignment is on the way. Democratic leaders are staking their party’s future on their ideological agenda. Financial Services Committee Chairman Frank candidly admits that his party “are trying on every front to increase the role of government.” Former President Clinton told a Netroots convention last year that “We have entered a new era of progressive politics, which if we do it right could last 30 or 40 years.”

    The question is, do we realign with the vision of a European-style social welfare state, or do we realign with the American idea?”

    Louis, there was more to that disturbing quote:

    Emerging battle-bruised from the disaster zone of Copenhagen, but ever-hopeful, a rider on horseback brought news of darkness and light: “The politicians have failed. Now it’s up to us. We must break the law to make the laws we need: laws that are supposed to protect society, and protect our future. Until our laws do that, screw being climate lobbyists. Screw being climate activists. It’s not working. We need an army of climate outlaws.”

    Sounds like Farnish to me…….

    Louis Hissink

    Mark,

    The mostr disturbing thing is that they actually believe in it. Now THAT is the problem.

    But taken in conjunction with the Demcocrats stated goal of turning the US into a Europe style welfare state, will the Greenpeace outlaws be used against the political opponents, or the “sceptics”. The Greens here are quite ruthless.

    This could turn out uglier than many of us anticipate.

    Can you remember this exchange on the “Esquire does the full Marc Morano and ClimateGate feature”
    MattB:
    April 1st, 2010 at 2:01 pm
    I didn’t realise we were arguing Mark D? I was just giving you some first hand understanding. There is no-one I’ve met on the climate blogosphere that I would not similarly be happy to enjoy a beer with.
    Mark D.:
    April 1st, 2010 at 2:10 pm
    Sorry Matt, I am not argueing (I didn’t look at your links) not because I can’t take it but because there is beer in front of me. Yes I can be bought but it takes better beer than Fosters….
    Now on Climate Depot I find the following in a piece on Joe Bastardi.
    “I happen to like Dr. Mann,” said Bastardi. “I’ve read a lot of his stuff, and this is a brilliant man.” Said Mann, “I have great respect for Joe Bastardi, and for AccuWeather.”

    But while he and Bastardi remain friendly, they don’t agree on climate change, nor on how to settle their differences. Bastardi wants Mann to debate the heavyweights who disagree with him; Mann wants Bastardi to talk climate over a beer. (No date has been set.)

    Will MattB: and Mark D please reveal themselves.

    It seems Lord Monckton’s celebrated exchange with Youth at Copenhagen may have been more prophetic than imagined.

    But they’re only decent kids really, doing it for fun, and fired with endorphins from “believing” they’re saving the planet.

    The Farnish types exist and that astounds me. How many are willing to commit crime is the question.

    I have disagreed with the Democrats since I was in the 6th grade (elementary) when Nixon ran for president. Clearly radical leftists (US style) had significant control even then. The democrats have mastered the use of government welfare to cultivate votes. More fearsome to me is that we are losing the “Great Generation of WWII era. My parents are among them and are now in their eighties. This voting block is among the most sensible and wise. When they are gone we’ll have to do a lot of educating or the Left will be able to own Washington. I actually believe that Obama winning was not expected (it was a trial run). This means that not enough is in place to allow the socialist Left to really run away with things. He is too inexperienced and is making a lot of people angry. Politics ebbs and flows in sometimes surprising ways and I think we’ll see a rapid pendulum swing to the right this fall and for a while. (recall Regan after Carter). A little Green violence will (IMHO) help in this backlash. Where I live is predominately Labor Left. These people are the original Red Necks (mining and construction). Even though they typically vote Democrat they would never tolerate Green Sponsored violence.
    A lot of Green (Farnish style) violence will cause the center and right to come unglued and that could mean the Greens will get their wish of reduced world population and a more permanent Right shift.

    Will MattB: and Mark D please reveal themselves.

    Bob, I was laughing when I first read this but then I think you might be serious. I will reveal that Mark is my real first name and D. is the first letter of my last name. I do not personally know in any way Joe Bastardi or Dr. Mann. (if that is what your concern is).

    As for MattB, do not know him at all other than what you and I read here at Jo Nova. If what he says is true, he is an AU resident. Me I live in the Midwest of USA. Due to the distance I doubt MattB and I will ever talk over a pint (in the same pub at the same time).

    It might help you to recall that in the early days of the formation of the USA, the Founding Fathers frequently met in pubs to discuss politics. The end result was brilliant. (IMHO) Therefore, I can see no harm in any two disagreeing factions talking over a pint(s) of good beer.

    By the way if you wish I’ll extend that to include Wine, Cider, Mead, Whiskey, Gin, Vodka, Rum, Brandy, and a host of other favorites. (but you might be cautious and limit any of those to less than a pint at one sitting)

    Mr. Malloy If this isn’t revealing enough please explain. I don’t recall you and I having any differences, did you feel left out?

    Bob – I always find it offensive when I’m asked to “reveal” myself – which I take to mean post naked pictures of myself on the internet. I’d wager you’d need to buy Mark D and myself a lot of beer before that happens.

    If you can get your hands on some nice Western Australian boutique beers like Little Creatures (Pale Ale or Rogers) you’d be making a good choice. But I’m pretty sure you can’t if you are (I’m guessing) in the USA. The Rogers is a great brew.

    Joanne:

    At #26 you report;

    The interview is available by clicking on the global cooling radio page, and then clicking under the Monckton Banner.

    “Were you surprised about the Phil Jones inquiry?”
    Monckton: “Not at all. Remember Parliamentary Inquiries are set up to exonerate Parliament…”

    I rarely disagree with Christopher, but I do about this. And I think my disagreement is important because the Parliamentary Inquiry is the second such flawed enquiry: the first was by Penn State University.

    I explain my understanding of the problem at
    http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/originals/comments_uk_p.pdf

    And I say there

    These comments conclude that there was no ‘whitewash’ but that both the completed investigations used the same flawed method to assess the affair, and this method inevitably provides findings that seem to exonerate the Team. The used method was to adopt a legal definition of ‘evidence’, and this has resulted in the enquiries saying those under suspicion are exonerated because the suspected persons said they had done nothing wrong.

    Hence, the two completed enquiries have resulted in greater suspicion of the involved scientists by providing an impression of a whitewash.

    and

    Suspicions will remain concerning members of the Team and their actions until a different form of enquiry is completed. Hence, whatever the ‘truth’ of the Climategate affair, such a different form of enquiry is needed if that ‘truth’ is to be divined and is to be generally accepted. That different form of enquiry needs to assess the information in the emails and the computer code by using a scientific definition – not a legal definition – of ‘evidence’.

    It is to be hoped that the investigations of Climategate that are now being conducted will be such a different form of enquiry. Failure to conduct such a different form of enquiry would result in continued suspicion of the affected climate scientists and could damage the reputation of science as a whole.

    Anyway, that essay explains what I think about the matter.

    That link is very interesting. Greenpeace is in a snit over biofuels? How awful! I guess foolishness does catch up with its practitioners now and then.

    At
    http://ff.org/centers/csspp/pdf/courtney_082006.pdf
    you can read a paper I wrote in August 2006 prior to the USA legislating to enforce displacement of crude oil products by biofuels and the EU promoting use of biofuels.

    And at
    http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/originals/biofuel_issues.pdf
    you can read a paper I provided in December 2008 that compared the outcome of the adoption of biofules in the US and EU to the predictions in my 2006 paper.

    The synopsis of my 2008 says;

    This paper reviews effects of large use of biofuels that I predicted in a paper published in August 2006 prior to the USA legislating to enforce displacement of crude oil products by biofuels. The review indicates that policies (such as that in the EU), subsidies and legislation (such as that in the USA) to promote use of biofuels should be discontinued. The use of biofuels is causing significant problems but providing no benefits except to farmers. Biofuel usage is a hidden subsidy to farmers, and if this subsidy is the intended purpose of biofuel usage then more direct subsidies would be more efficient. But the problems of biofuel usage are serious. Biofuel usage is
    • damaging energy security,
    • reducing biodiversity,
    • inducing excessively high food prices, and
    • inducing excessively high fuel prices, while
    • providing negligible reduction to greenhouse gas emissions.
    All these effects were predicted in my paper on the use of biofuels that was published in August 2006 and can be seen at
    http://ff.org/centers/csspp/pdf/courtney_082006.pdf
    My 2006 paper also predicted objections from environmentalists if large use of biofuels were adopted although this then seemed implausible because many environmentalists were campaigning for biofuels to displace fossil fuels. But this prediction has also proved to be correct.

    Hence, the two completed enquiries have resulted in greater suspicion of the involved scientists by providing an impression of a whitewash.

    It’s worse than that, it spells out in big letters to Joe Public that no one in authority is the slightest bit interested in cleaning things up. It shows how few of our leaders are willing to stand for a job done right, instead they stand for whatever is convenient this minute.

    I predict a big vote for parties like BNP and UKIP in the coming UK election simply because so many citizens are sick and tired of being taken for granted by their leaders, and they are willing to take big risks just to see that they are treated with a tiny iota of respect. In essence voters are going to cry out for anyone different to what they have now, regardless of the consequences.
