A few weeks back I sent out the following press release to coincide with that meeting of anti-minds called “Live Earth”:
Live Earth = Dead Brains
The weekend’s Live Earth concerts across the globe brought together a suitably motley array of dimwitted headbangers and caterwaulers whose noise pollution is proof positive that screaming skulls destroy their own brains, says Sense of Life Objectivists (SOLO) principal Lindsay Perigo.
“Bands who build careers on destroying the faculty of hearing with their technologically amplified jungle cacophonies joined together in a global campaign against the system that liberated science and made possible the technology on which they rely—capitalism—in favour of returning to the jungles and caves from which these addled specimens looked as though they’d barely emerged.
“Ostensibly, Live Earth was intended to awaken the world to the dangers of man-made Global Warming. The inconvenient truth for the caterwaulers and their guru, Al Gore, is that the earth has warmed and cooled since the beginning of time, peskily independent of human beings. And it is these cyclical temperature changes, as indicated by real science uncorrupted by United Nations agendas, that influence CO2 levels, not the other way round. The temperature changes in turn are determined by solar activity. Perhaps when they’re done trying to ban capitalist activities among consenting adults on earth, the ecofascists will try to outlaw the sun?
“If these troglodytes don’t commit suicide from depression induced by their deathly shriekings, they may live to see the Earth cool again—in which case they could mount crusades against an imminent man-made Ice Age, as their ilk were doing a mere three decades ago,” Perigo observes.
“In the meantime, sensible, life-loving folk should enjoy the warmer temperatures while they last—and continue to savour and celebrate the blessings of capitalism and freedom.”
Needless to say, because it spoke the truth, the press release was ignored by the mainstream media. The MSM wallowed in an orgy of Gore-and-Gaia-worship even as evidence mounted that we may already be well into a new cooling period in the earth’s temperature cycles. From The Sunday Telegraph, July 22, 2007:
“A graph of satellite data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows that, over the past eight years, average global temperatures have flattened out well below their peak in 1998. The 2007 figures to June show a dip to a level first reached in 1983, 24 years ago. During this same period, however, the graph of CO2 levels from the Mauna Loa Observatory has continued a consistent rise. If rising CO2 inexorably means rising temperatures, what happened to those temperatures?”

Here, as a matter of interest, are four headlines from The New York Times over the past 80-odd years, capturing the ebb and flow of cooling and warming as alternating sources of apocalyptic hysteria regarding climate change:
September 18, 1924: “MacMillan Reports Signs of New Ice Age.”
March 27, 1933: “America in Longest Warm Spell Since 1776.”
May 21, 1975: “Scientists Ponder Why World’s Climate Is Changing; A Major Cooling Widely Considered to Be Inevitable.” (The Washington Post had already heralded the dawn of a new Ice Age, as had Fortune magazine, which had written, in February 1974: “As for the present cooling trend, a number of leading climatologists have concluded that it is very bad news indeed. It is the root cause of a lot of that unpleasant weather around the world and they warn that it carries the potential for human disasters of unprecedented magnitude.”)
December 27, 2005: “Past Hot Times Hold Few Reasons to Relax about New Warming.”
All quite a hoot, really. As the late Augie Auer, TV 3’s erudite and colourful meteorologist for many years, observed – we’ll be looking back and laughing at this Global Warming hysteria in five years’ time. Or will we? This time, vote-grubbing politicians, aided and abetted by the ignorance of the rabble and a fascist media, are competing with each other to see who can come up with the most draconian regulations by means of which to close down industrial civilization—which is the Green agenda.
“Fascist media” is over the top, you say? Listen to this, from CBS’s Scott Pelley, who likens Global Warming Sceptics to Holocaust Deniers who should not be given air-time: “There comes a point in journalism where striving for balance becomes irresponsible.”
Meanwhile, Martin Durkin’s magnificent and exceptionally courageous documentary, The Great Global Warming Swindle (link on SOLOPassion.com), continues to open the eyes of the blind who want to see. It has aired in Britain and Australia, but you may be sure State TV1 and State TV3 won’t be screening it here any time soon. Among other things, it quotes the founder of Greenpeace, whose eyes had already been opened, as saying the current Green movement is “anti-human.”
My personal recommendation to those who think that humanity and human activity are a blight on the planet is that they should speak for themselves—and remove themselves accordingly and forthwith.
