The Climate Brick Road song — “surrender your neurology to the church of climatology”

This song is growing on me. It didn’t grab me in the first verse, but I was definitely smiling by the middle.  A rollicking… satire.

I could see this going down very well at the right party. :- )

Thanks to James Black,  a Tropicarnival music award winner,  see his site. This song is part of an album “Songs From Inside The System”, and I hear it started as a short poem here. Support the musician who doesn’t follow the same meme as so many others, there are plenty more songs yet to be written about our collective craziness.

My favourite lines:

“Paying your carbon taxes,

paying trillions to the goldman saches,

surrender your neurology,

to the church of climatology,

that science garbology,

is new world theology.

A sermon from the book of Gore,

chapter one, verse one, agenda 21…

“Temperatures rising,

…. by zero degrees,

Head for the hills,

somewhere, somethings extreme!

      I can’t see Triple J picking it up…. (ABC station for teens)

        I rarely turn on the radio.
        I remember the exact moment Triple J lost me as even a potential occasional listener.
        The year was as recently as 2010 and the JJJ DJ sounded like he was barely 20 years young.
        The station had just finished playing the Tron Legacy End Titles theme from the recently released movie of the same name. Trance/Electropop is not everyone’s cup of tea but this is one track I quite liked and it was perfect for the end credits of the movie.

        Last echoes of the trumpet crescendo fades out.

        JJJ kid: That was the Tron Legacy theme. Ah yes, the sequel to a movie nobody ever saw.

        * * * * * !?!!

        There must have been silent handwaving from the control booth at this point because he tried to back pedal and revise his intent, but the damage was already done.

        I don’t exist.

        I decided that this incident was not merely a case of handing the mic over to baby bigots for the sake of extra teen peer appeal, nor even something as maliciously Lefty as intentionally stirring intergenerational class warfare. JJJ just didn’t care if they pi55ed off everyone over the age of 30. Funny how one doesn’t realise what a company’s target demographic is until you’re out of it.

        JJJ has people with broader perspective at the top; JJJ’s Music Director in 2010 was aged 46. So the clueless DJ hiring decision is intentional. Thanks for nothing, Kingsmill.

        Never mind the original Tron was a “cult classic”. In 3 months it got the same box-office earnings as Blade Runner.
        Cartesian Reductionism, Kingsmill, do you speak it?!
        I remember, therefore I exist.

          The last time I listened to JJJ would have been in the 90′s and the left wing crap was starting to surface more and more until I couldn’t listen without hurling abuse at the radio, in 2011 I remember that tool Adam Spencer losing it when Lord Monckton was supposed to be interviewed but copped a rant from the little prat Spencer, Monckton kept his cool and showed up just much to the left our public funded radio has become.
          Recently I had to suffer JJJ blaring at a worksite because the young blokes liked it, fair enough I like some new music and I’ll give anything a go but the biased unintelligent banter in between was too much to bear so my options offered were change stations or a sledgehammer to turn it off, the station was changed. :)

          My jjj Experience was life changing as well.

          About 8 years back we had just moved house and I had gone to a news supermarket which played radio while you shop.

          For 10 minutes I was a captive audience to JJJJJ.

          After a diatribe of juvenile abuse aimed at “old farts” who had apparently “had such an easy life” in their early years that they had hardly broken a sweat, the punch line.

          They, “the old farts” or yours truly, had greedily used up all the resources of the nation in the own self interest and leasure

          seeking and had forced all following after them to actually have to go out and work rather than party as the baby boomers did.

          Needless to say after that I needed to hear more and occasionally switched to JJJJJ to make sure it wasn’t a one off.

          It wasn’t.

          So much poison spewing out of the mouth of this DDDJJJ was repeated by his mates in later sessions that I started to comprehend the basis of the after school year riots of a couple of years ago and similar destruction and vandalism throughout the communities near where I live.

          And we pay taxes to have this venom pour into the ears of young people, who because it comes over the airwaves from above, start to believe and act out their envy and anger.

          Our ABC and its’ affiliates and hangers on are in need of massive realignment to the real world.

          Yes I’m allergic to the ABC in all its forms. I find it so irritating that we are forced to pay for this nauseating propaganda, with multiple channels devoted to indoctrinating young people.

          Glad to see the policy of the Liberal Democratic Party is to abolish the ABC: http://ldp.org.au Don’t know whether any of the other Senate cross-benches are following suit.

    Yes that was a very good article by the UK Telegraph’s James Delingpole on September 25 – it attracted an astounding number of comments (over 9,000). Clearly there has been a big backlash to the UK’s rapid transition to hopelessly uneconomic and mega expensive wind power generation via those hideous giant wind turbines. Nigel Farage’s UKIP Party will be a force in the 2015 UK Federal Election – why? Check out their Energy Policy in their website below entitled “Keeping On The Lights”, 17 pages of how things should be done wrt to UK’s future Energy Policy.

      Given UKIP’s policy is sane and based on this world they have an immediate advantage over the other 3 parties.

      I am not sure that this advantage will last, or need to, until 2015; there are signs of panic in the some parts of the Government. The exorbitant subsidies for new diesel generation (i.e. new to the grid) shows that some realise that blackouts are inevitable unless something is done quickly. Unfortunately for them, there is no way major new capacity can be installed before 2017, so blackouts are very, very likely in the next 2 winters.

      If the coming winter is as cold as some have predicted, thus boosting demand, then the resulting blackouts will see Cameron out on his ear. To avoid this, he will have to tell the EU that their directives about power station closures are not going to be implemented. I don’t think he could bring himself to do so. Nor do I see the 2 other major parties agreeing, but continuing to bang the IPCC drum. The result could be a break-up of the coalition and an election in the early summer of 2014, which would give UKIP a big chance of getting representation in Westminster.

    A vast improvement on John Butler, Bono and Bob Geldof. Geldof says it might all be over by 2030. I hope he reads the Bolt Blog (sarc) because I’ve challenged him to a guitar dual at midnight 2030, Geldof powered by solar and me by coal. He’ll be 80 by then, if he’s still alive.

    Pachauri’s Demon is a funny old thing. It magically transports hotter than average water molecules from the ocean surface through the top 2000 m, thereby heating the depths where you can’t actually measure the temperature rise.

    And, amazingly, this only works when average air temperature and total precipitable water are falling, yet they claim it’s where the ‘missing heat’ ends up.

    This science comes to you from a railroad engineer backed up by truly heroic ‘scientists’ who imagine that the cause of the missing heat is the atmosphere heating the Earth’s surface at twice the average warming from the Sun by a mechanism, ‘back radiation’, no real scientific discipline accepts as valid.

    As I said, it’s IPCC magic all the way. The genius of intellectual dwarfs inventing imaginary CO2-AGW to scare us back to the stone age whilst the insiders get rich.

    Another “It’s worse than we thought” scare story from our own SMH.

    Turns out it’s the little things we need to worry about in climate change. When they’re in trouble, a great polar ecosystem may be, too.
    The oceans are now absorbing so much carbon dioxide they are acidifying at an unprecedented rate, according to the International Program on the State of the Ocean.
    Geological records show the current acidification is unparalleled in at least the past 300 million years, IPSO’s latest State of the Ocean report says.
    ”We are entering an unknown territory of marine ecosystem change, and exposing organisms to intolerable evolutionary pressure,” it says.

      Thanks for the extract from the SMH article stating that “Geological records show the current acidification is unparalleled in at least the past 300 million years, IPSO’s latest State of the Ocean report says. We are entering an unknown territory of marine ecosystem change, and exposing organisms to intolerable evolutionary pressure.” Extraordinary statement from the IPSO scientists, clearly with no geological expertise being consulted. With a PhD in Geology and over 30 years experience in my field of expertise, palaeonenvironmental reconstruction, I can verify that what is written above is “total & utter crap”. Who ever penned this article in the SMH should hang their head in shame and in future do some due diligence wrt this type of subject matter.

        Well said King Geo. Emeritus Professor Cliff Ollier agrees with you.

        One of the factors affecting ocean pH is photosynthesis by plants. Experimental results show that plants grow better if CO2 is increased, and greenhouse managers commonly increase the CO2 artificially to increase crops, often by 30% or more. There is every reason to suppose that marine plants also thrive if CO2 is increased. There is also experimental evidence that carbonate secreting animals thrive in higher CO2. Herfort and colleagues concluded that the likely result of human emissions of CO2 would be an increase in oceanic CO2 that could stimulate photosynthesis and calcification in a wide variety of corals.

        Marine life, including that part that fixes CO2 as the carbonate in limestones such as coral reefs, evolved on an Earth with CO2 levels many times higher than those of today, as reported by Berner and Kothaval. It may be true to say that today’s marine life is getting by in a CO2-deprived environment.

        To demonise CO2 yet again, a false claim is that human production of CO2 will cause the oceans to become acid.

    And speaking of the Church of Climatology, I believe that Tim Flannery’s new Climate Council (the substitute group that he formed after Australia’s Climate Commission was disbanded (unfrocked?) by the new Government), has overlooked a remarkable opportunity.

    If they instead formally embraced the Church of Climatology, they and their congregation could obtain tax free status. More importantly, it would elevate their belief system to a faith, meaning that they would never again suffer the inconvenience of having to support any claims that they might make with verifiable evidence.

                weird isn’t it. Canberrans all claim a place in the House of Lords. The CoA has a funny sort of history and was made up without much consultation (hardly anyone new about this competition or how it was assessed) and with poor regard to location (Canberra is full of castles apparently). I’m not sure where the half-hearted effort to redesign them for the 100th anniversary went.

                Based in Canberra is one way of putting it.

    This is one crazy musician/celebrity!

    Sir Bob Geldof: ‘All humans will die before 2030′
    SIR BOB GELDOF has declared we ALL have less than 17 years to live.

    The musician-turned-activist reckons the world will end in 2030 – leading to the extinction of humankind.

    Sir Bob, 61, based his miserable prediction on the effects of climate change.

    “The world can decide in a fit of madness to kill itself,” he told a group of youngsters at a summit in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    The former Boomtown Rats singer also warned “the next war will not be a World War One or a World War Two, it will be the end.”

    He added: “We may not get to 2030. We need to address the problem of climate change urgently.”

    Sir Bob is best-known for his attempts in helping to fight famine in Africa, staging Live Aid at Wembley Stadium in 1985.

    He finished his speech by apologising for being “bloody miserable”, but added: “just get on with it”

      Janama thanks for this info about Bob Geldof. It doesn’t surprise me. Most actors and pop stars promote the “CAGW Myth” – I think they believe it will help their image – however in due course when the “Theory of AGW” is exposed for what it is – total crap – they will no doubt withdraw their support. Learned chaps like yourself, myself & others eagerly consulting this fine website are aware that Eddy GM is imminent and that will well and truly terminate any last vestige of support for the “Failed Theory of AGW”.

      If we go back 17 years to 1996 what have we got?

      1997 – Kyoto Treaty
      1998 – Hottest year on record
      2001 – Mann’s hockey stick
      2002 onwards – billions spent on windmills, solar panels and other green nonsense including carbon taxes

      All consistent with “getting on with it”.

      What do we have now? Expired treaty with no replacement, no more warming, discredited hockey stick and an ugly environmental legacy.

      None of these things reduced the CO2 level and yet there is no more warming, so no-one can claim that they worked. The mind boggles as to what Geldof expects.
