UVA Joins the Carbon Whores Club

UVA goes all in on Climate Gate FOIA coverup

Carbon Whores

The University of Virginia has joined a list of institutions claiming that there has been ... 'exoneration' of, scientists exposed by the November 2009 "ClimateGate" leak [See Brave New Commie], while simultaneously through its actions making a mockery of the idea.

UVa's August 23 release under court order of 3,800 pages of emails - records that UVa previously denied existed - was its second since the  (ATI) sought judicial assistance in bringing the school into compliance with the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.

The school has spent approximately $500,000 to date...  to avoid releasing correspondence directly addressing the now discredited “Hockey Stick” graph produced while former assistant research professor Michael Mann worked there.

In a rare instance where Great Britain showed more common sense than her colonies:
Consider the UK High Court opinion about -- per the judge -- the global warming movement's "alarmist" claims, as featured in the film "An Inconvenient Truth:"

“[Claimant attorney] has established his case that the views in the film are political by submitting that Mr. Gore promotes an apocalyptic vision, which would be used to influence a vast array of political policies, which he illustrates in paragraph 30 of his skeleton argument:

 “(i) Fiscal policy and the way that a whole variety of activities are taxed, including fuel consumption, travel and manufacturing … (ii) Investment policy and the way that governments encourage directly and indirectly various forms of activity. (iii) Energy policy and the fuels (in particular nuclear) employed for the future. (iv) Foreign policy and the relationship held with nations that consume and/or produce carbon-based fuels.”

But Rodge - I have a friend who continues to say Mann and the climategate liars have been exonerated, and we were duped, and now we only have 2 weeks left to submit to total environment control or it'll be too late.  How can I answer him?

Stymy - you can't,  so don't even try.  If he (or she) is not a real, real close friend, apply an ice pick massage to the  medulla oblongata  Only known cure for AGW freaks. [Check local euthanaisa laws, or get a sample of Algore's semen and plant it on the victim's buttocks. ]

Now I'm Steamed

Microwave Stuff

Joyce Chen Rice Cooker

Me, not so much, but everyone else in the family is a popcorn eater.  Just made a batch for MoSup and the princess granddaughter.  I tried to use a microwave bag that's been laying about for some time, but no; she insisted on fresh.  No matter; 1/3 cup of good (Orville Redenbacher' grade) popcorn and two minutes yields a bucket.  I apply butter spray and popcorn salt, and voila.  But, that's not what this is about. 

I bought this Joyce Chen rice steamer about 10 years ago.  Countless, and quite unnecessary (ahem)  dishwasher washings eventually  made the plastic brittle and it broke.  I bought another one immediately.  It steams vegetables, heats leftovers,  makes rice popcorn and you name it.  It's an indispensable thing for me.

You're welcome. 

PS -- yes, I told MoSup 100 times that

Handwash with Mild Cleanser
Cleaning & Care:   Handwashing Recommended
Material:   Heavy Gauge Durable Plastic
Dimensions:   7.25-in. d x 6.5-in. h
Size/Capacity:   2-qt.

PPS -  summabitch.  I can't find it for sale anywhere.   Crap. Sorry.

WAIT! It's also called the Keilen 4-in-1 Microwave Rice Cooker Thanks Woody.

BLUTO GOVERNMENT Raids; Shuts Down Gibson Guitar

Wants Manufacturing Outsourced to India

Change That Maddens

The raids forced Gibson to cease manufacturing operations and send workers home  ...  [Obama government]   has suggested that the use of wood from India that is not finished by Indian workers is illegal, not because of U.S. law, but because it is the Justice Department’s interpretation of a law in India. (If the same wood from the same tree was finished by Indian workers, the material would be legal.) This action was taken without the support and consent of the government in India.”  [full]

Playbaby Union Asshats

Lord, help me ...
because I keep having real bad fantasies ...
... forgive them; they know not what they do.  They're Liberal M'frs.

School Uniforms
"Some of these folks super glued our front doors at the prep school," said Br. Bob Smith, OFM, the president of Messmer Catholic Schools, about the school on the corner of North Fratney and East Burleigh Streets.

He told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that a woman was walking in front of the school Thursday, asking people to protest.

According to Br. Smith, one protester said " 'Get ready for a riot,' because they were going to disrupt the visit."

Please, are there teachers out there who are embarrassed by their asshat union?

Blow Me Gore

The Katrina Syndrome
Spitting in the Devils Eye

A not ill wind

Every year since Katrina hit, the National Hurricane Center has forecast "a season of increased activity with more named storms"

Every year we've had fewer/

One day there WILL be a season as they forecast (except that year they'll probably forecast a calmer season) but that will be chance not "expertise"

Obama needs a crisis or two to take the focus off his incompetence. The AGW crowd need something to try give some credence to their claims - If something big and dramatic doesn't happen soon, they may lose all that money they've been extorting from us.

Meanwhile, Mother Nature carries on just playing with us.
