And humans can stop climate from changing … how ? You think that we can alter the earth’s rotational wobble, the sun’s output, etc the theorized cause of ice ages, etc or something ??? rofl
If one could say that AGW ever had any credibility, it’s toasted now regardless. Garbage in – garbage out. The whole of it a fiasco from the word go.
Welcome aboard the train of climate reality Mr Mead, a bit late but still helpful. The sooner this abject corruption of true scientific methods is completely investigated as well as the corrupted politics and policies are identified, we must not stop. The distortion of this fraud is not victimless, it has influenced elections, increased unneccessary taxation on poor and middleclas, increased global starvation due to food prices, increased the animosity of 3rd world countries toward the developed countries and has resulted in many, many other damages to prosperity and peace. Please keep the light shining on the AGW issue!

Amazing how this story continues to unfold to practically no coverage, interest or curiosity from the major american media organizations.
Is it really such a mystery that Algore is doing his level best to impersonate a piece of furniture during this discussion, when he may be one of the very few individuals with a greater personal economic stake in enviro-alarmism than Pachauri? Algore’s got a HUGE dog in this hunt, boys and girls, and if the game warden shows up and shoos everybody out of the woods guess what happens to Al’s treasured lifestyle (which requires more electricity in a month than the average family consumes in a year)?

I’m sorry, when your headline said “Al Gore Still Silent” didn’t you really mean “All Gore Remains At Large”?

Greenpeace is not calling for IPCC Chair’s resignation
There have been recent reports in the Indian press that Greenpeace has asked for Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the Chair of the IPCC to resign. This is not true. Greenpeace is not calling for Dr. Pachauri’s resignation.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PR Log (Press Release) – Feb 07, 2010 – Greenpeace is not calling for IPCC Chair’s resignation.
Attention: News Editors
New Delhi, February 6th – There have been recent reports in the Indian press that Greenpeace has asked for Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the Chair of the IPCC to resign. This is not true. Greenpeace is not calling for Dr. Pachauri’s resignation. We believe the IPCC is an open and transparent organisation, and we trust it to manage itself. Pachauri and the IPCC obviously have made mistakes in handling this situation and should learn the necessary lessons.
Listed below are answers to some of the questions that you may immediately have.
Q. Is Greenpeace calling for Dr Pachauri to resign?
A. No. The IPCC is an open and transparent organisation, and we trust it to resolve these issues itself.
Q. Was John Sauven / Greenpeace UK calling for Dr Pachauri to resign?
A. John’s remarks were made at a reception and were part of a much longer conversation. What was reported in the Times does not reflect the totality of the conversation. The IPCC is an open and transparent organisation and Greenpeace trusts it to resolve these issues itself.
Q. Does Greenpeace have confidence in Dr Pachauri?
A. Yes. The IPCC is an open and transparent organisation and we trust it to resolve these issues itself.
Q. Does Greenpeace have confidence in the IPCC reports?
A. Yes. They are clear and transparent, and the evidence is overwhelming. In some areas the science has moved on. As an example, the Arctic is melting faster than the IPCC report predicted. The tipping points associated with methane release from Siberia and the deep oceans may be closer than we thought. These are facts that make taking action essential.

You write, “The company does not franchise unless its central
offices are sufficiently convinced that the branch owners command the
respect and authority needed to navigate local clan and militia
I suspect that the security Dahabshiil enjoys is derived from its ability to cut off any faction or clan from remittances, backed up by a known willingness to track down and take revenge on anyone that attacks the office.
A Somali says, “Without hawalas, there is no life here in Somalia”.
It’s an interesting form of globalization. In the bad old days, if an economy had collapsed so completely, emigration and starvation would have depopulated the area. Now, you can have a huge free-fire zone that millions live in for decades.
Somalia is merely an extreme example. See also Mexico or the Philippines. Remittances from abroad help keep people barely afloat and thus reduce the pressure for improvements within the home country. (Then again, so does unearned wealth, whether in the form of the devil’s excrement or of inherited societal intangibles.)
