James Delingpole

I stumbled on to this Delingpole fellow on They'd linked to a global warming related piece he wrote that was published in The Telegraph. The Telegraph describes him as a "...a writer, journalist and broadcaster who is right about everything" and, from the first piece of his I read, they might be right.

Turns out he also has a blog/ web page where he posts his writings. A quick look at his archives shows some fun writing, although probably not very fun for Believers. I've added him to my personal blog list. I'll follow him for a while to see if he's worth adding to my blog sidebar.

Like Fred, I always prefer to get my information from right-wing ideologues than from scientists.

Obviously a Believer commenting above.

Would these scientists be seeking further grant money from government, or would they be be the ones doing unbiased research on their own dime?

I usually don't respond to anonymous comments, but may I suggest a flick titled "V For Vendetta" directing particular attention to the scene depicting the "Dear Leader" exclaiming to the proletariat how much "you need us."

Seems partisan "believers" of any popular dogma see things in dualistic perceptions. If you are not right you must be left. If not conservative, then liberal. Not religious, then Atheist.

Heaven forbid you fall into the "free thinker" category! Independent thinkers don't need "Dear Leader" or his empty paternalistic promises.

Unsettling concept to those who seek the false security offered them by politicians. But in order to offer "protection", the opportunistic leader must first present a crisis.

If global warming is not happening, what's up with all the progressive flooding in southeast asia? That is just some kind of coincidence?

I don't agree with carbon tax though. How about we stop spending a trillion dollars protecting obsolete tech like gasoline? It's as if we are going to war to make sure the atari VCS has no market competition.

No. The flooding is the same flooding that's happened throughout history- both recorded and unrecorded history.

Well, something is causing whole swaths of land to go underwater.

This is the way I see it. The public outcry about global warming has mostly been in this what if tone and if something isn't done, some people in wealthy countries might be affected somehow, someday.

Meanwhile, the poorest countries are inundated with natural disasters beyond the previous scope of this "unrecorded history."

I'll argue the quantitative and time frame aspects of global warming all day, but I gave up arguing against the whole concept long ago. Taxing will not solve any problems, I agree with that, but neither will living in denial.

Where have "whole swaths of land", gone underwater? I haven't seen it.

If we would of had TV cameras 1000 years ago, we might of seen the same supposed things going on.

As far as this supposedly happening to just the "poorest countries", doesn't that claim seem a bit strange to you? If the whole planet is subject to these effects, why are just the poor people feeling its effects?

Makes no sense. You're following along with the hysteria.

glaciers are growing in the pnw- it's why gore shys from seattle.

"warming" is about a global tax paid to banks, in the 70's they claimed they needed a global tax to fend off an ice age.

ebb and flow- the planet changes, only bankers want control.

"Heaven forbid you fall into the "free thinker" category!"

I've yet to meet someone who labels himself thus who is able to think freely.
