I’m So Old …


… I remember when climate “scientists” were warning about a coming ice age. Over at Manhattan Contriarian Francis Menton has a post dealing with how hard it is to make climate predictions, especially about the future. (I’ll let him explain the reference).

You and I are not going to be around in 2100 to see if any of these predictions about the future have come true.  But meanwhile the climate alarm crowd obliges us with shorter term predictions to help us get some handle on how reliable they are.

Menton takes a look at some recent predictions. Read the whole thing.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the moonbat causes that Brett Kimberlin has supported through his not-for-profits is the campaign against GMO foods. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with his anti-GMO website.

A visit to Brett Kimberlin’s anti-GMO-food website (citizensagainstgmo.com) reminded me of a 1937 quote from George Orwell:

One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.

In America these days, it’s “Progressives” that fit Orwell’s bill.

Of course, Brett “legitimate” businesses that he used to launder his drug money were a health food store and restaurant, so he has been associated with moonbat cuisine for decades. Still, I wonder if the site generates many clicks on the Donate button? Given that it hasn’t be updated for about a year-and-a-half, probably not.

orvilleredenbacherBTW, I am pleased to announce that the Orville Redenbacher  popcorn offered by Hogewash! via Amazon does contain GMO corn.

Enjoy!

About a year after that TKPOD was published, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin put up a series of posts that included misleading information about Monsanto being “tried” in The Hague for “crimes against humanity” because of the GMO seeds they sell. The “trial” was not before the International Court of Justice or under any UN or governmental auspice. It was conducted by a kangaroo court of activists.

As I’ve noted before, Brett Kimberlin and his organizations oppose “Frankenfoods.” They would prefer to have upwards of a half-million children die each year from vitamin A deficiency rather than have golden rice available in poor countries. They would rather Africans starve than let them plant insect- or blight-resistance corn.

OTOH, poor Asian and African kids aren’t likely to hit a donate button on a JTMP or Velvet Revolution dot US webpage, whereas there may be a few anti-science moonbats who still donate.

As the TKPOTD from three years ago today points out, it’s about the Benjamins.

I admire Bono, and not just because he’s a good musician. I also respect the social activism that is grounded in his Christian faith.

The Dread Performer Kimberlin has taken to bad mouthing Bono over at the jtmp dot org website. (I read it so you don’t have to—even though my doing so probably doubles their legitimate web traffic.) You see, Bono wants to help feed the hungry in Africa, and he’s willing to partner with companies such as Monsanto in the process. Monsanto, of course, must be evil because they are a purveyor of GMO seeds. Bono, Brett would have us believe, is “selling out.”

Gentle Reader, if you read The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, you’ll probably come to the same conclusion I did: Kimberlin instigated his campaign of lawfare in an attempt to prevent the donors to his not-for-profits from finding out who they were really supporting.

I don’t believe his brsss knuckles reputation management has worked out as he had hoped. OTOH, everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
