Friday Funny: The Miss Climate Beauty Pageant (no, really)

From the “♪ There she is, misssss climatology… ♫” department. You just can’t make this stuff up.

Dr. Roy Spencer advises me of this:

The president of our university forwarded some flashy brochures he received from Virendra Rawat, Indian founder and director of the global “Green Schools” concept. They are auditioning for young females to compete to become “Miss Climate – 2018”.

As the letter states, “winners of this beauty pageant will serve as Global Ambassador of Climate Change”:

Dr. Spencer asks some hilarious questions:

QUESTIONS:

1) Can contestants self-identify as female, 18-25, and of minimum height 5’5″ tall?

2) Is the former IPCC director Rajendra Pachauri involved in this in any way? It sounds like something he’d have some interest in.

3) Will the contestants’ knowledge of global environmental concerns be up to the standards of, say, the world peace concerns of the Miss America contestants?

4) Given the global warming theme, will there be a — ahem — heat level requirement of some type for contestants?

5) Will Anthony Watts enter his dog Kenji in the competition? (At least Kenji is a card-carrying member of the Union of Concerned Scientists).

Perhaps I should, he’s got the hair for it:

Marcus – I fear you are all too right. The incessant bile and hatred directed at Trump by the rabid BBC is becoming truly deranged. There is literally nothing for which he can be given any credit without instantly being tagged with a negative twist, usually insulting everyone who has any connection with him.
Yet today we see the sad remains of American servicemen who were killed in the Korean War being returned at long last to their home. And the hope of better things to follow from his direct approach of talking to enemies. If this had been achieved by anyone else they would – rightly- have been lauded for it.
Increasingly I think the media, especially the BBC, fails to understand how much they are being held in contempt by the audience which they think is naturally supportive of them. I often find myself surprised at the range of people who have really poor opinions of the BBC and their allegedly “liberal” ilk.

Even the French serious “conservative” newspaper, Le Figaro, is full anti-Trump. Just as in almost every other news source, the most insignificant news is repeated if it’s anti Trump (French TV news channels discussed “Melania Trump plagiarized speech” for TWO WEEKS) but anything that reflects badly on anti Trump people is not even discussed (not a word on TV on the baseball attack, and these “journalists” love to discuss gun deaths in the US). In general I can predict whether a very important news will be aired: does it reflect badly on Trump? Yes. On conservatives that aren’t anti-Trump? No. Even in the peek of #metoo and Hollywood harassment “revelations”, the sexual harassment settlements House scandal was not even mentioned (while completely unrelated cases of alleged harassment in other countries, or even vaguely described “sexism” were discussed).

So when Le Figaro mentions good economic results, of course it’s an happy accident: Croissance : la conjoncture sourit à Donald Trump (Literally: Growth: conjoncture smiles at Donald Trump)

July 27, 2018 10:20 am

Here are the basic contest rules:

* All contestants MUST be hot — not just a little hot — but the hottest of the hottest, to symbolize “the hottest years on record”.

* And, yes, all contestants MUST be born female, … to reflect the most popular gender association with Earth, as in “Mother Earth”. In other words, contestants MUST mirror the mothering potential of the planet; hence, sorry, fellas, you’re out.

* The winner MUST receive a MINIMUM of 97% agreement of the contest judges.

* Judges’ score cards MUST be located away from any biasing heat sources, just to symbolize the purity (giggle) of climate data collection process.

* Contestants may wear ONLY minimal clothing, to reveal their total hotness and to symbolize the dire state of how hot the future world will get.

* Contest scores WILL be allowed to be manipulated, depending on who agrees to sleep with whom. This is perfectly acceptable in this contest, as it mirrors reality most truthfully.

* Each contestant must submit a paper to either NATURE or SCIENCE — no worries, they’ll publish anything.

Wow, I invoke “The Endochronic Properties of Resublimated Thiotimoline” to nominate myself as I was is the days when I made my living “banging the keys” in gar(b)age bands.

HOT: A certain guitar player who shall remain nameless dubbed me “Princess Pokerhotass.” and in them days, I was considered, ahem, “stacked.” The older I get, the better I looked 🙂

Born female: Yep, and about as “noble savage” native as it gets these days. I only have a couple of stray Russians and Norwegians in my family tree to apologize for.

Yes, I’ll be able to get 97% agreement out of any wimp likely to be a judge 😉

score cards away from biasing heat sources: That’s OK. I can adjust them with Waldos.

ONLY minimal clothing: Many of my stage outfits qualified as minimal, and all natural too, mostly buckskin and feathers.

Scores manipulated depending on who agrees to sleep with whom: Unlike many notable warmistas, I have a few tiny hangups about just what I am willing to do in exchange for honors and awards so I may have to use those Waldos a little more than I intended.

submit a paper to Nature or Science: My paper on the effect of salmon berry harvest on spawning chinook salmon returns is definitive.

Aren’t I the perfect candidate?? 😉 😉

Status = Unmarried (because that is important to Climate?)
Height = 5’5 MINIMUM (Short chicks need not apply)

Reply to  Andy Pattullo
July 27, 2018 12:28 pm

The phrase, “stay abreast”, is clearly sexist, Andy P. The gender-neutral alternative is “stay achest”.

Also, physical beauty is relative and culturally determined. Swim-suit standards are plainly prejudicial, therefore. What counts is the beauty inside, … the person inside.

The appearance of the person outside has nothing whatsoever to do with the … “person inside”. There’s this amorphous, ghost-like entity floating underneath our physical skin, TOTALLY disconnected from the physicality that our primitive senses register. I cannot yet prove this, because I have not yet assembled the necessary synthetic supporting data. I’m working on a grant to rectify this shortcoming, as I type.

BELIEVE…ACHIEVE…
Just like the hokey preachers and mystics (but I repeat myself) of long (or not so long) ago,

Nothing’s changed. Exactly the same as religions today.

Kenji doesn’t look too happy about suggestions that he participate in such a contest. He may be short but he’s above such things.

Give the whole idea a one legged kick!

Isn’t it ironic, looking for the hottest babe to promote global cooling?

Why even have the pageant? We know how these things go – they’re just going give the win to the girl with the biggest ∆Ts.

Here in Norway, climate change is often referred to as “wetter and wilder”.

Surely, that can’t apply to Miss Climate 2018?

Maybe “Miss Melting Ice Maiden” is better.

Will there be continual adjustments of Miss Climate Change’s statistics or measurement of her UHI effect?

Will there be a “Bobble-Head” competition?

Don’t they know that the “Miss America” competition is now going to dress the young ladies in burqas?

I wonder if there will be a Miss Climate 2018 calendar? They could feature the winner and her eleven runner-ups.

I nominate and vote for Rosie O’Donnell! She’s a heavyweight in all things anti-Trump, has name recognition and meets all the criteria for the contestants. She will knock all the other contestants out into left field!

This contest makes me think of a valuable field for study. And, of course, your’s truly would be willing to undertake it. Anyway, I’d like to propose a study on how global warming impacts female breast size. It’s quite possibly the only thing I haven’t heard of a climate change study being conducted about. And, I think I should be the first to get my hands on it.

contestants to be wearing handmade natural fabric clothes hand sewn , no machines used, no makeup unless its plain mineral foundation ground using mortar n pestle
mascara and eyeliner only allowed to be carbon black from beeswax candles with cotton wicks..
of course the auditoriums will need to be lit with candles..or solar powered leds at most
hmm
nah theyre too energy intensive in manufacture..
candles or nothing.

Perfect opportunity for Justine T, to show some leg, flash that heart breaking smile and get the hell out of politics.

Where are the cries of sexism? If a beauty pageant is held in the woods and no one screams sexism, does it still count at a beauty pageant?

Miss Climate Beauty Pageant (no, really)

Reallllllllllleeeee? OMG! Awesome! Everything would be so awesome if we could just all get along and save the climate and the baby whales! He-he-he-he-he-he.

Just goes to show us there is no propaganda method that those believing in the orthodoxy will go to get the attention of non-believers and skeptics. We know what India wants, lots of dollars from the evil rich capitalist West so they can become evil rich capitalists.

How much do you want to bet the winner doesn’t shave her legs?
