For "the team", may the farce be with you

Fenbeagle pens a masterpiece in the theme of The Empire Strikes Back. I loved this one:

After watching Mann’s TEDx presentation, I think the above is the scene right before he augers in to the surface of the Death Star.

Fenbeagle has lots more. The one for Tallbloke is quite good.

I give the effort two thumbs up. View it all here.

Basking in the warm glow of my tungsten Christmas tree lights, I say to my fellow skeptics, “God bless us, every one!” Have a Merry, y’all.

This is orders of magnitude better than nattering on about how the “CO2 climate sensitivity” is lower than the IPCC allows. The free peoples of the world need to laugh “climate science” (as she is taught today) right out of the mainstream media, and out of science altogether.

General Trenbeth “What of the Rebellion? If the skeptics have obtained a complete technical reading of this weather station, it is possible, however unlikely, they might find a weakness and exploit it.”
Lord Hanson: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.
General Steig: Any attack made by the skeptics against this paper would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This paper is now the ultimate power in the universe! I suggest we use it!
Lord Hanson: Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the potential of Agenda 21
.
General Trenbeth: Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Hanson. Your sad devotion to that ancient warmist religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the skeptics’ hidden rebuttals
[Lord Hanson makes a pinching motion and General Trenbeth starts choking]
Lord Hanson: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Mann: Enough of this! Hanson, release him!
Lord Hanson: As you wish.

Please check out what Pachauri has to say:
More laughter came when Pachauri joked that Branson could give climate deniers tickets on the aviation mogul’s planned flights into outer space. “Perhaps it could be a one-way ticket,” Pachauri said, smiling, “though I’m not sure space deserves them.”

Shouldn’t he be shown crashing & burning long before getting to the target?

The Tallbloke cartoon is apt. Last night on the 10o’clock news we heard of the death of Vasclav Haval the President of the Czech Republic who, despite illness, made his objections to the madness of the climate alarmism loud and clear. He non violent fight saw his country through communism to independence and his efforts got him voted the Czech President. He was on the side of truth and open democracy which made him an outsider with the EU. He was a great man and will be missed. May what he fought for all his life continue with the same energy.

I think, though, it needs to be made clear to all, the DOJ is not the villain in this piece – they are responding to a request from the UK to secure evidence held by an American entity, not the other way around.

I left the following R.I.P. at his death notice at the BBC yesterday:

18th December 2011 – 15:56
It was his brave stance against man made global warming scam (AGW), that I knew and respected him. His fight is over but we will carry on to expose the pseudo-science that is AGW. My condolences to family and friends. May he rest in much deserved peace.
G. Karst.

Of course a warmist promptly denounced it, but I wasn’t about to debate it on a death notice. GK

As I look out my window and prepare to go to the garden and pick some winter greens on this late fall day I wonder? If I performed as the climate scientist have in collecting, securing, preserving and studying data would I have passed the course. I think not. It is my opinion that we need more of the comical illustrations preferably in the lame stream media. The one thing that would do the most to stop their shenanigans would be public ridicule of their methods and practices by recognized authoritative scientists. Scientific method must be returned to the forefront of investigation in science.

Mann is really a pirate, not some space ace–he takes people’s money for his “efforts” but hides his “jewels” where only he can find them. At the same time, he boasts he’s a know-it-all “climate scientist”. Time for the his “paste” to be exposed for what it really is.

E-mails showed the Department of Energy colluded with Phil Jones in the desire to hide from FOI Acts. That the DOJ is practicing a CYA for the US government is not an outside possibility esp in light of “Fast and Furious” where several people in the US government should be on trial and headed for jail.
At this point I consider the US government criminal unless proven other wise.

Absolutely brilliant. The only thing missing is a reference to Penn State and its investigation into Dr. Mann’s behavior. If there was some way to work that into a cartoon, I’d like to see it.

Excuse Ms Combs, but please refrain from schooling me on whom I should defend or not. Since things like preservation orders are my stock-in-trade, find somebody else to lecture. I play in that legal sandbox for a living. That certain members of the DOE have culpability seems clear. There’s no CYA on the part of DOJ here; quite the opposite in fact – there efforts may well expose matters to light, not hide them. They are exercising an international agreement between the US and the UK for mutual co-opertion in law enforcement matters. We have the same agreements in place between Canada and the US and the UK. The DOJ’s response is procedural and was in the form of a request. The word is important. When and if the evidence is needed, the wording will be considerably different. Since the preservation order came through the DOJ, the UK request may very likely have come through or under the auspices of the respective state departments

Please people don’t confuse Vaclav Havel with Vaclav Klaus, author of Blue Planet in Green Shackles.
Ye gods! HIS BOOK IS NOT LISTED FOR AMAZON UK. It’s there in German, French, Polish… but no mention of an English imprint… although it’s there at Amazon.com (US). Plus there are only three reviews even there… sounds strangely thin on the ground.

That plausible. However, it was a blunder to tell WP to not notify any of its customers without the force of law behind it. Jeff found out, and the rest is history. As you suggesting that this was smart law to “request” at the risk of spilling the beans, rather than go straight for the court order? Didn’t seem to turn out that way, did it?

Paul Coppin:
So far, I haven’t seen any documentation that specifically locks down
where, when, or who orginated the request for any
sequestration and preservation of data.
The American side may have intiated the request to the U.S. keepers of the
data keys (wordpress, etc.) because of possible Federal investigation into
charges for Climategators’ grant fraud and tax exvasion, and asked the
Brits
to assist in nailing down elements of a conspiracy.
Tallbloke’s raid could have been fallout from action on this side of the Atlantic.
The British “plods” would be under no obligation to say their raid was done to
accommodate any DoJ requests.
Never assume facts that are not in evidence.
