Peggy Noonan says:

Who, of all the powerful women in American politics right now, has inspired the unease, dismay and frank dislike that Hillary Clinton has? Condi Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein? These are serious women who are making crucial decisions about our national life every day. They inspire agreement and disagreement; they fight and are fought with. But they do not inspire repugnance. Nobody hates Barbara Mikulski, Elizabeth Dole or Kay Bailey Hutchison; everyone respects Ms. Rice and Ms. Feinstein.

What has Peggy been smoking?

Unease, dismay and dislike are very apt adjectives for Pelosi and Feinstein.  Many on the left have had far less charitable things to say about Dr. Rice.  Peggy then proceeds to finish the paragraph with a sentence that is obviously untrue.  So blatantly false that you have to ask why it was written.  Plenty of people hate Mikulski, Dole, and Hutchison.  In this modern internet age you don't have to speculate on the subject, evidence of those sentiments is only a google away.

Is it possible that someone who uses the English language to earn a living does not know the definition of the word respect?  If a poll were taken today I would guess that around 40% would answer that they do not respect a radical left anti second amendment politician named Feinstein.  Lastly, Peggy herself has once again demonstrated a lack of respect for Dr. Rice by failing to use her proper title.

What if there was a drama and all the actors were villains?

Mix Boeing, the FAA, Dan Rather, a fired Boeing engineer, Mark Cuban's HDnet, OSHA, allegations of monkey business during crashworthiness testing, and stir gently over medium heat.

I apologize to my fellow engineers for putting the word "Boeing" next to the word "engineer".  It won't happen again.

Live Earth

Doyle has written one Reuters story and two blog entries about the "Live Earth" concerts since my last update. This Gaia worshipping nonsense is getting out of hand. The surface of the earth is infested with living organisms but most reasonable people agree that the bulk of this 6x1024 kilogram planet is not "living". Add to this the delusion that the climate is in "crisis" and the hubris to think the climate can be influenced by holding some concerts and you have fulfilled the clinical definition of mental disease. Now Doyle has repeatedly claimed that global warming will "spread disease". How many diseases will be spread when a bunch of dirty hippies congregate in large groups to hear Shakira tell them that they are the chosen ones who must save the planet? A spokesman for one of the carbon offset scams, Michael Buick, summarized the insanity best when he said "It's a dilemma for Live Earth -- they have to create carbon to save carbon"

Inconsequential

A 47 nation internet poll that only drew 26,000 responses is the subject of Doyle's latest rant for the Reuter's wire:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, talk show host Oprah Winfrey and ex-U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan are best suited to champion work to fight climate change, a 47-nation opinion poll said on Monday.

Yech

Not completely worthless you say? How about if a third of poll participants said that no one was suited to lead an assault on climate change? A substantial portion of that third likely realize that "an assault on climate change" is an impossibility applied to the nonexistent.

This story also includes the increasingly nuanced phrase: "Scientists in a U.N. climate panel say that greenhouse gases, mainly from burning fossil fuels, will bring more droughts, floods and rising seas." I can step down the hall and get two scientists to say just about anything if I promise to take them to Dairy Queen and buy them a Blizzard, and I'm talking about real scientists, that work for a living, producing real products, not some retarded losers on a U.N. climate panel.

Ameritron delivery problems

There didn't seem to be anything on the net about this so somebody had to:

Keywords: Ameritron, AL-572, tube amplifier, backorder, tubes not available, Svetlana, MFJ.

A ten week backorder is not the end of the world, but it ain't here yet.

Classic

This is the good stuff, Doyle firmly in his comfort zone doing what he does best. Producing an abundance of overreaching global warming alarmism in every single paragraph

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - This year is on track to be the second warmest since records began in the 1860s and floods in Pakistan or a heatwave in Greece may herald worse disruptions in store from global warming, experts said on Friday.

I don't suppose the really warm temperatures could be the result of poorly placed sensors like this one?

Nor would it be fair to accuse one who worships The Goracle to be selectively choosing only that data that supports the myth of global warming.

Desertification for dessert

Here is one today and again it is based on a goofy UN study

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Desertification could drive tens of millions of people from their homes, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and central Asia, a U.N. study warned on Thursday.

One quote confirms every suspicion you might have had about UN types being totally clueless.  "It is hard to isolate desertification from other factors making people move, such as poverty or armed conflicts".  Yeaaah riiight, poverty, war, deserts, they all look the same to me too.

Also noticed that Doyle has promoted CO2 from the rank of "main greenhouse gas" (which it is NOT) to "industrial greenhouse gas".  OMG that just makes it sound soooo much more ominous doesn't it?

Payback is hell

Today we have a nice anti-capitalist rant on Doyle's blog:

June 27th, 2007, filed by Alister Doyle

Prince Charles says his household emitted 3,425 tonnes of greenhouse gases last year. That must make him one of the biggest emitters in the world, even though he is cutting back with measures like running his Jaguar on fuel made from cooking oil.

Since my nice and reasonable comment on his blog was deleted I now reserve the right to delete one of Doyle's comments here. Also in the vein of fabricated environmental hype as an excuse to crush freedom he wrote this

June 27, 2007 — By Alister Doyle, Reuters

OSLO -- An extra 0.5 percent should be levied on all tourism revenues and spent on protecting animals and plants from threats ranging from loss of habitats to climate change, an environmental expert said on Monday.

According to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity "the world is facing the worst wave of extinctions since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago". Let us assume first that the U.N. had any credibility at all. Secondly suspension of disbelief is required and you need to stop laughing and get back up in your chair. The K/T extinction event is estimated to have wiped out 20% to 25% of late cretaceous species.  By the UN's own highly questionable numbers, mankind will have to continue exterminating three species per hour for the next 500 years or so to equal the magnitude of that event.

Back from vacation

but not yet up to speed. One story by Doyle today, but nothing in it for us non-believers in the religion of global warming to chew on.

OSLO -- The world's first floating wind turbine could be generating electricity in the North Sea in 2009 under a research pact on Monday between Norwegian energy group Norsk Hydro and German engineering firm Siemens.

All of it

Status normal

When Doyle spent a week writing animal rights stories with almost no mention of global warming I was only slightly concerned. Now it's been nearly a week since his last Reuters story of any kind. What has happened to that wacky Reuters Environment Correspondent?

As you can see from today's post at his blog, he's still employed by Reuters and just as misguided as ever:

It's always elephants, elephants, elephants

I agree with Zimbabwe's Francis Nhema, why is Alister Doyle suddenly obsessed with elephants? Six stories about elephants in four days. His infatuation with elephants is so great that it has been a week since he has had anything loony to say about global warming.

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

THE HAGUE, June 15 (Reuters) - Elephants and eels may find life slightly easier after trade curbs imposed by U.N. talks ending on Friday that are a pinprick to slow what may be the worst wave of extinctions since the dinosaurs.

Update: ANOTHER story about elephants late Firday!

Strange ivory fetish

Two more stories today regarding the ivory trade ban (that makes five stories about ivory in three days) and one about trade restrictions on coral:

A 1989 ban on elephant ivory exports will be extended for nine years after one-off sales of stocks by southern African nations

and here:

A U.N. wildlife conference extended a 1989 ban on African elephant ivory exports on Thursday by nine years

and this one contains the phrase "global warming" which Doyle somehow managed to avoid using for six very long days:

Trade in red and pink corals prized as jewellery for 5,000 years will be restricted to try to help the species recover after drastic over-exploitation

After so many years of typing that sequence of keys at least once in every paragraph the pressure must have been intense.  Imagine Doyle at the keyboard maniacally typing page after page of "global warming" like Jack Nicholson in "The Shining".

People Eating Tasty Animals

If Doyle keeps writing animal rights stories instead of global warming stories I might have to rename this blog.

Here is a 3rd version of the ivory trade story:

African ministers at a U.N. wildlife conference tried to break a deadlock on Wednesday over elephant ivory in a dispute between countries seeking to extend a 1989 export ban and others wanting trade

and now one about eating tiger meat:

Genetic experts have found evidence a restaurant in China has served tiger meat in defiance of a 1993 ban, a U.N. expert said on Tuesday

Seven animal rights stories in the last week and the phrase "climate change" has only been used twice!!

13:00 update - Another version of the tiger meat story, that makes eight non-global warming stories in a row from the Reuters Environment Correspondent:

A U.N. wildlife conference rebuked China on Wednesday for reviewing a 1993 ban on domestic trade in tiger parts amid fears that any sales could drive wild cats to extinction

The evils of capitalism

Doyle might be tired of spreading the religion of global warming but he can always be counted on to produce a nice anti-capitalist rant. Two almost identical stories today:

Kenya and Mali cut demands on Tuesday to expand and tighten a 1989 world ban on the trade in elephant ivory as a compromise to avoid a standoff with other African nations at a U.N. forum

and

Kenya and Mali reduced their demands to extend a 1989 world ban on the trade in elephant ivory but ran into deadlock on Tuesday at a U.N. forum with other African nations who want tightly controlled trade

Socialists don't understand the concept of value. If the animal has value then people will protect it. If the ivory trade is banned then the animal has no value, except to the poachers who are somehow able to sell the ivory in spite of the world trade ban.

Today at lunch scientists came very close to reaching a consensus on the Filthy Sanchez resolution.

Scientists say

This is the second story in as many days by Alister Doyle and Jeff Mason, but I noticed that the last one was written by Jeff Mason and Alister Doyle.

Scientists say greenhouse gases will spur more floods, droughts, heatwaves, spread disease and melt polar ice caps.

All of it

Scientists, plural, that means at least two.

A recent gathering of scientists came to the unanimous consensus that Alister Doyle molests Collies.  No consensus has yet been reached on the "Filthy Sanchez" resolution.

Ignorance of historic proportions

By Jeff Mason and Alister Doyle

HEILIGENDAMM, Germany (Reuters) - World leaders revived hopes for a long-term U.N. deal to fight climate change on Thursday but experts branded their targets for cutting emissions as toothless.

More rubbish

Daniel Mittler of Greenpeace says:

"We condemn G8 leaders for failing to live up to their historic responsibility for causing climate change. This is clearly not enough to prevent dangerous climate change."

People like Daniel Mittler are a danger to our life and liberty.

Putting hype in perspective

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Global warming that is melting ice and snow will affect hundreds of millions of people around the globe by disrupting rivers in Asia, thawing Arctic ice and raising ocean levels, a U.N. report said on Monday.

All of it

OK, Doyle is right, look at what mankind has done to the planet over the last 15,000 years. The oceans have risen over a 100 meters since we have been walking around ruining the place.

 Recently, not so much.

Summary for May 2007

Alister Doyle's last work of fiction in May:

OSLO (Reuters) - Greenhouse gas emissions by leading industrialised nations have accelerated since 2000 and several countries are performing worse than the United States which opposes a U.N. pact for curbing global warming, U.N. data shows.

Link

One of the objectives of this blog is to call attention to the fact that most of the alarmist global warming hype is produced by just a few so called "journalists". In the 31 days of May Doyle wrote 22 global warming doom and gloom stories for the Reuters wire just like this last one. Most filled with exactly the same nonsense. Contrary to Doyle's claim CO2 is not the main greenhouse gas, the correct answer is water vapor, but there just isn't any point in trying to correct someone who also claims that global warming is going to cause water shortages and rising seas.

Is Alister Doyle a knee biting yellow journalist?
No
Yes
