Howler of the day – pure comedy gold from Greg Laden

Note to Greg, Tom Nelson found it for me, no crystal ball or Oz powers needed.

Climate Change Denialism – Greg Laden’s Blog

Anthony Watts has responded on his blog but if I put a link to it he will discover that I’ve written about him and instruct his winged monkeys to fill my comment section with hate.

Translation from Gregese into English: “Anthony Watts has responded on his blog but if I put a link to it people will discover that lies were written about him and people will realise I’m full of hate.”
In all sincerity though, the cowardice of these people is breathtaking. Mann won’t debate Spencer; Hayhoe declares [she] won’t debate a sceptic unless she has a gang of 48 other non-sceptics backing her up; Laden is afraid to link to your rebuttal of the Abrams hate piece.

Mark Bofill

Please. I’m a minion, working towards a henchman promotion, not a winged monkey. :p

Notice he was asked about “skeptics” and replied “deniers”. This clearly indicates that he cannot tolerate any dissent from his precious faith. He has no skeptics because they are not of the faithful, and so must be shunned.

Damn, outsmarted again!

Dangit! I just check the rules, and apparently I don’t comment here enough to quality for winged monkey status!…. And I always wanted to be a winged monkey too! They were my favorite thing in the whole movie!!!

Is Greg Laden all there?

tobias

Darn I clicked on Laden’s site and then made an (even bigger) second mistake and read something to do with guns, I think I have to go for a walk just to calm down I rarely make really big mistakes in that short a period of time, later.

cui bono

Like Clarence, still working on getting my wings. Nonetheless it is possible to show Greg Laden what the world would be like if no-one had given birth to AGW alarmism. Hint: Fewer windfarms and bureaucrats, generally richer, otherwise eerily the same.

The Auditor General from the Canadian province of British Columbia, pointed out that taxpayer’s money is being wasted on the Pacific “carbon trust”. The CBC seemed upset when they reported this yesterday as if how dare someone criticize. Much anger towards the Auditor General came from a UBC professor who’s company makes millions on this scam. The Auditor General is taking on a new job in Australia. He was forced out of his job for what he was hired to do. Sounds like the government and media don’t want the public to find out about this money making scam. I should start a trust and call it the Pacific Sunlight Trust.
Sorry no link, but I am sure this story will appear on this site.

Reblogged this on Climate Ponderings and commented:
HOWLERS!

Richard111

Why won’t the warmists teach us how carbon dioxide traps heat in the air? I really would like to know.

Snotrocket

This is really hilarious! I linked through to Laden’s rubbish (he’ll never be the master of a sweary blog) and probably improved his hit rate stats – he’s like a man with a hernia: needs the support.
Two things struck me immediately – alright, three things: He doesn’t get many comments; he doesn’t think we’re sceptics, but ‘science deniers’ (wtf are they?); and he says this about our how to engender debate:

“Why don’t I list “skeptics” sites on my blog roll? Because I think that the climate science deniers are doing a bad thing, spreading misinformation and lies, and also, behaving (in many cases) badly in other ways, such as threatening law suits or attempting to get criminal charges against scientists, etc. etc. It would be grossly irresponsible and highly unethical for me to put those sites on my blog roll.”

‘Unethical’??? How post-f*ckin’-Gleikian can you get?
But then, not to put a link to WUWT is so childish. Does he think that his readers are incapable of find WUWT for themselves??

Paul Westhaver

Anthony,
I thought you’d like to know… Not only are you a AGW skeptic, now “Climate Denier” but Greg Laden called you a “science denier”.
Just thought you’d like to know.
Maybe next you’ll graduate to baby killer.

AllMenAreIslands

I wish the warmhysterics would teach us how to change the climate, so we could have hot sunny days in Toronto in February instead of having to go to Florida.

“…the climate science warmists are doing a bad thing, spreading misinformation and lies, and also, behaving (in many cases) badly in other ways, such as threatening law suits or attempting to get criminal charges against scientists, etc. etc. ”
FIXED.

WUWT gives me wings!
I’m hungry. Are there any bananas around here?

Jeff

Better a Trunk Monkey than a winged monkey….

Well, I was able to get through one or two comment posts .. .then ZAP! … not letting me post anything more. And believe me, I was very kind. I used no harsh or inappropriate language, I did not call anyone a name, nor did I even single anyone out except Greg. I simply posed some serious questions about the topic at hand. I guess Greg doesn’t like to be questioned. Oh, but he was able to call all of you “liars” and guilty of spreading “misinformation”. Greg seems like just another in a long line of Joe Romm wannabe’s.

Severian

Yeah, and your little dog too!

Paul Westhaver

he’s trolling for hits…. parasite.

Jay Dunnell

Since I was a winged monkey in an elementary school play “Wizard of Oz”, can I get official status here! LOL
When they resort to name calling, you’ve won.

Bloke down the pub

Maybe I haven’t drunk enough Red-bull to get my wings yet. Is there a ceremony if I get promoted from plain monkey?

MattS

I think it’s funny that all the comments on the Greg Laden blog post linked to in the article except for a couple of replies by Greg Laden are from skeptics.

” It’s a bully tactic; establishing rules that don’t really exist then whinging when your victim does not obey said rules. That’s just a guess, though.” What a thin skinned bully. I wonder if he ever looks in the mirror?

It’s understandable why Greg Laden is reluctant to link to this blog. Every time this blog is linked, a monkey gets its wings.

talldave2

I give my comment ten minutes before deletion:
——-
The world should have stopped taking Mann seriously way back when he wouldn’t share his data/methodology because people “were just going to try to find something wrong with it.” That’s not science.
Their obdurate behavior is so strange no fiction editor would ever allow it. “This is the most important scientific study ever done, the fate of the world hangs in the balance… what? No you can’t check my work!” Not plausible.
As others have said, I’ll believe this is a real issue when the people claiming that start acting like it.
Oh, almost forgot: Haaaate! Haaaaaaaate! And your little dog too!

“Anthony Watts has responded on his blog but if I put a link to it he will discover that I’ve written about him and instruct his winged monkeys to fill my comment section with hate.”
C’mon Greg. You LOVE it when Anthony’s winged monkeys land on your blog. You get more hits/views in one day than you’d otherwise get in a year. And judging from the comments, Anthony’s winged monkeys are generally a whole lot more respectful to you than you have been to them/us.

john robertson

I went and looked, dip me in clorex.
The little fellow is desperate, WUWT will boost his blog count beautifully.
I’m seeing a trend here, as these futile little propaganda blogs fade further into obscurity, their personal attacks on Anthony will escalate.
WUWT are the only visitors they get.
I would give them mere days before their funding is yanked, from the time Anthony stops reacting to their foulness.

Perhaps someone should enlighten Greg (the Fool) Laden that denial is when someone
refuses to believe irrefutable data, as in the case of our non-warming planet for several decades now. Greg is the only identifiable denialist around here that I can see. Laden the Denier. Sounds better than Laden the Fool. Sort of.

Gary Hladik

“Anthony Watts has responded on his blog but if I put a link to it he will discover that I’ve written about him and instruct his winged monkeys to fill my comment section with hate.”
Why should Laden’s comment section be any different from the rest of his blog?

Greg reinforces my precept that all of the global warming hysterics are paranoid types who see themselves as victims. Victims of “powerful forces” (they’re required to be powerful, else their cherished mental illusions look ,well, rather silly).

Lew Skannen

Translation: My sad blog is sinking and I need some traffic from anywhere.
Is there such an equivalent as a blog which stands in the middle of the internet superhighway and lowers its pants for lose change?

Stephanie Clague

I am not a winged monkey, I am a stooge in the pay of big oil, well I fill up my car with petrol and my handler gives me tokens and when I have enough I get a set of knives, does that count as being in the pay of big oil?

I do too and I am in North Carolina. It was 25F earlier this morning ~ 8:00am ? In 2010 it was in the 90sF the first week of April. Heck my daffodils haven’t even starting blooming yet only the wild crocus.

Laden’s hate is self-personification.
He reminds me of children who would rather have negative attention than none at all.
Well, I’m not going to visit his blog. He can call me all the names he wants but I won’t be suckered; it’s a waste of time.
And because you know he’s going to read these comments: Grow up, Mr. Laden–you’re part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Fly. FLY my little beauties

“1) Mann’s egotistical claim to be a “public” figure is great. He has just torpedoed any chance of winning HIS lawsuit against NRO et.al. “Never interrupt the enemy when they are making mistakes”
2) Mann has NEVER been awarded a degree in climatology,or even taken 1 class. “Climate scientist” indeed.
3)John Abraham’s claim to Sandy(a tropical storm when it made landfall) that Sandy has a human print. Prove it. He doesn’t give one iota of factual proof. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.
4) Funny. Wiki still has him listed as a Nobel winner.,a claim which has been exposed as a lie by the Nobel Committee themselves!
Lies,obfuscation,propaganda,and name calling temper tantrums.The true hallmarks of a Warmista,who do NOT believe in cAGW,for if they did,they would be changing their life styles dramitically.After all,not much power for computors in a cave/mud hut.”
Posted the above at Greg’s blog.Wonder if it will pass the mods?
I also love his and commentators reply to the question of why skeptics blogs have links to Warmista blog,but the reverse is not true. Hilarious.

The effect, Richard, is real, and fairly elementary; the ‘effect’ overall may be quite minimal given all factors affecting earf’s (sic) climate however …

Frank Cook

talldave2 – are you perhaps confusing Mann with Jones?

Seems that, as predicted, something went wrong with my last post over there. Lucky I saved a copy here so i didn’t have to retype it. Did feel the need to add an intro this time just in case 😛
Oh, and just had to clear cookies and route through an anonymous proxy for it to accept my post, even before moderation. I can keep this up all night, can he?
——————————————————————————————-
——————————————————————————————-
Seems my last attempt got Lost In (cyber)Space but luckily I’d remembered to cross-post it elsewhere so have a copy.
Obviously my tongue in cheek prediction over there about moderation couldn’t have really happened with such a valid comment so I guess I’ll try again.
Must remember to re-post in the other place as well for posterity 😉

I told him we were a friendly lot if he got to know us but we don’t take kindly to crap like “denier”. My comment got removed.
So, I posted another even friendlier post – just making it clear that we object to things like being called “denier”.
I’ve tried, and if he doesn’t respond in kind, he only has himself to blame if the “winged monkey” come calling.

AllMenAreIslands

Thanks, Gail! I look forward to checking out your song and other videos at the M4GW site over the weekend. My work computer won’t let me, and I should really get some more work done today anyway. 🙂

Joe

Modded again over there – third time lucky maybe.
I honestly don’t see there’s anything contentious or unreasonable in what I tried to say – I was only pointing out that the other side might have the same view of some things – so I’m really not sure why it should be refused by a supposedly rational blogger?

u.k.(us)

Even without wings, monkeys can be a menace.
( youtube can prove it ).
Wizards are …. a fantasy dreamt-up by a child’s mind.
Climate models lack such an excuse.

But you are willing to put up links to so-called pal reviewed papers which are then blown out of the water for the dishonest way they torture the data and science.
Yeah nice and ethical Greg….how do you sleep at night!!!

Richard111 says:
“Why won’t the warmists teach us how carbon dioxide traps heat in the air? I really would like to know.”
The answer is simple; The UN declares Newton’s law of cooling unconstitutional. The earth’s heat will no longer flow from the warm atmosphere to the cold of space, allowing climate scientist’s models to trap it. In spite of traps being cruel & inhumane it will be permitted by the IPCC provided the scientists models only trap enough heat to generate grant money to feed their immediate families, thus preserving their heritage.

Steve from Rockwood

I clicked the link to Laden’s blog last time. No thanks.

The screamers and the freaks don’t realize that Hansen, IPCC and the MET are back peddling and everyone else is just laughing at them. No offense intended but I’ve had a glass of mead and this just makes it more delish!

EternalOptimist

I just checked, and I was wrong 🙁
I should have said ‘Fly , FLY my pretties’
on reflection, I think it’s better to be a pretty than a beauty. gives one something to aspire to
