Just plain false

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Arctic peoples and tropical islanders will try to strengthen an unusual alliance on the front lines of global warming from Sunday by seeking ways to cope with melting ice and rising seas.

Even if man made global warming were a reality, the ocean levels have not, as of today, changed sufficiently to make this a true statement:

"In the tropics, rising seas are damaging beaches. And seawater is percolating into the ground water and damages crops"

All of it

Hypocrisy

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO, May 24 (Reuters) - Fetuses and babies are more vulnerable than previously thought to chemical pollutants that can cause disease or disability, even in tiny doses that do not harm adults, about 200 scientists said on Thursday.

In summary, Doyle thinks over a million malaria deaths per year is acceptable, but the use of the unjustly demonized pesticide DDT is not.

What an ass.

Comfortably numb

By Alister Doyle

LONGYEARBYEN, Norway (Reuters) - Working down a coal mine on an Arctic island does not sound like a dream job for anyone, let alone a 21-year-old woman.

But Norwegian Guro Oydgard says she enjoys the life despite long shifts, choking dust and bone-numbing global warming.

All of it

Know your audience

Two stories by Doyle today, both with ludicrous headlines:

U.N. urges world to slow extinctions

and

Wild potatoes, peanuts at risk from global warming

There was a time in the very distant past when the newspapers wrote at an 8th grade level.  Today with outrageous fiction like: "Extinction rates are rising by a factor of up to 1,000 above natural rates." Reuters seems to be targeting the special education market.

Environmentalism rears its ugly head in Texas

Letter sent to the members of the Brazos River Gun and Archery Club:

Just lame

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

LONGYEARBYEN (Reuters) - Time may be running out for polar bears as global warming melts the ice beneath their paws.

All of it

The really disgusting part is that countless newspapers take this stuff off the wire and print it without question.

More hype

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO, May 18 (Reuters) - Industrial nations in the Kyoto Protocol want deeper cuts in greenhouse gas emissions beyond 2012 despite uncertainty over whether outsiders will join the U.N. pact, the head of a U.N. group said on Friday.

Link

The only item of interest here is the Leon Charles quote: "Reports this year by the U.N. climate panel panel, drawing on the work of 2,500 scientists and squarely blaming mankind for global warming, should help spur negotiators."   First I assume Leon doesn't actually stutter.  Secondly U.N. officials have already revealed that the agenda of the U.N. climate panel is to produce a series of alarming but bogus reports leading up to the December gaiety in Bali.

Another carbon offset scam

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Big airlines should imitate a tiny, profitable Costa Rican company that invests in forest protection to help soak up greenhouse gases spewed out by its planes, Costa Rica's tourism minister said on Wednesday.

All of it

The Twin Otter is a very nasty polluting stinky aircraft, and the airline claims to have offset their usage of 480,000 gallons of jet fuel per year for only $60,000. (Thats 12.5 cents per gallon)  So for 12.5 cents they claim to have offset the creation of about 20 pounds of CO2.  The fact that this number is more or less in line with the other carbon offset scams doesn't prevent my bullshit detector from going off.

Jet fuel data

Epiphany

Here is the best example yet of the kind of garbage that inspired the creation of this blog:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

LONGYEARBYEN (Reuters) - A remote chain of Arctic islands is advertising itself as a showcase of bad things to come from global warming.

Link

The Reuters that claims "the warming is happening twice as fast" is the same Reuters that printed these pictures:

The same Reuters that complains about environmentally harmful Russian-led tours on nuclear ice-breakers that also let islamic terrorists use their vehicle:

The same Reuters that claims "the birds are damaged by the global warming" that had to pull the fake picture of this bird:

The same Reuters that warns of a real danger of droughts, floods, a spread of disease and rising seas due to man made global warming that had to pull this fake picture of Beruit:

So how much credibility does the Reuters Environmental Correspondent have when he claims that skydiving over the north pole is harmful to the environment but if people would switch to water-saving shower heads it would make a difference?

Symptoms of illogical thinking

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Australia and Costa Rica are good examples for the multi-billion dollar world ecotourism business, which is growing at about 30 percent a year and in need of tight quality controls, experts said on Monday.

If you fill you head with nonsense like the precautionary principle don't be suprised when you feel conflicted about flying half-way round the world in a polluting jet to visit your favorite eco-resort.

For the consumption of morons

If you had a 30 second attention span you might not remember the numerous stories Doyle has written about global warming causing famine and drought:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany (Reuters) - Rains are reviving parched European crops and cargo ships are plying the Rhine fully loaded for the first time in a month but worries remain that global warming is skewing the continent's weather.

What is skewed here is the correspondent who sees "torrential rain", "higher crop yields" and "lower wheat prices" as harbingers of famine and drought.

Hit and miss

Two articles today, one is very lackluster and un-Doyle-like:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany, May 10 (Reuters) - Twenty-five years after losing a war to Britain over the Falklands, Argentina accused London at a U.N. climate conference on Thursday of wrongly counting the islands' greenhouse gases in its national data.

Aside from the bit about methane being a powerful greenhouse gas this is not at all in the classic style of Alister Doyle. Full story

But this 2nd one:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany, May 10 (Reuters) - The world has a "closing window of opportunity" to agree a pact to fight global warming beyond 2012, the U.N.'s top climate change official said on Thursday.

This is written by the "real" Doyle. Every single paragraph is loaded with alarmist hyperbole. The claim that global warming will cause "water shortages for billions" is especially unhinged. Full story

Getting closer

This article is a fair approximation of Alister Doyle's writing. Soon it will be impossible to determine whether any given Reuters story was written by the real Alister Doyle or the alien imposter.

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany (Reuters) - U.S. and Russian greenhouse gas emissions rose in 2005, more than cancelling out a dip in the European Union's emissions despite growing calls to limit global warming, official data shows.

I think this is the first time I've seen the claim that global warming will "spread disease"

A steep learning curve

Here is another Reuters story written by the clone of Alister Doyle left in his place by the aliens from the future

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany (Reuters) - From apples to zebras, all 1.8 million known plant and animal species will be listed in an Internet-based "Encyclopedia of Life" under a $100 million project, scientists said on Tuesday.

The clone is learning to mimic Doyle's behaviour but it still has a long way to go. It did learn to use the phrases "endangered species", "pollution", "habitat destruction", and "global warming", but the imposter clone used each of them only once in the story.

The substitute alien clone tries and fails

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany, May 8 (Reuters) - The poorest nations in Africa are likely to benefit from a widening of a U.N. project to promote non-polluting energies in the developing world, the head of the scheme said on Tuesday.

Full story

The clone of Alister Doyle, left in his place by the aliens from the future, has attempted to mimic Doyle's behaviour but we are not fooled.

#1) The style, verse, and vocabulary here are clearly not the same as the real Alister Doyle.

#2) This story contains none of Doyle's trademark hyperbole.

#3) The cloned imposter makes the fatal error of writing about trading carbon credits in a positive way, the real Doyle would have written about the evils of carbon credits and has done so in the past on many occasions.

The "real" Alister Doyle

Two more stories hit the wire dated today May 7 written by the real (pre-abduction) Doyle as opposed to the lifeless clone left in his place by the aliens from the future:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN, Germany (Reuters) - The United Nations urged far tougher action to fight climate change at a 166-nation climate conference on Monday, the first after reports warning of growing damage from droughts, floods or rising seas.

This one fails to explain how "deep emissions cuts" are to be achieved with only a 3% reduction in world GDP.

Link

and:

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

BONN (Reuters) - Birds, whales and other migratory creatures are suffering from global warming that puts them in the wrong place at the wrong time, a U.N. official told 166-nation climate talks on Monday.

This is a pathetic attempt to make us feel sorry for the birdies and the whales so we won't notice blatent lies like: "Global warming, blamed by almost all experts on a build-up of gases from burning fossil fuels...."

Interesting

This Alister Doyle story is interesting for two reasons:

1) It's dated tomorrow May 8 not today May 7

2) There is no environmentalist loony nonsense in it at all

Iran foreign minister says no nuclear suspension

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Monday the country had no intention of suspending its nuclear programme in line with a Swiss plan aimed at ending a stand-off with the United Nations.

Full Story

Aside from the typical Reuters lack of balance it ain't bad.  If they had included a few quotes of Ahmedinejad promising to nuke the Zionist pigs it would have been quite satisfactory.

Clearly the real Alister Doyle has been abducted by aliens (from the future).

Reuters has no excuse for publishing this crap

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO, May 6 (Reuters) - Governments meet in Bonn from Monday to seek ways to fight global warming, with the U.N.'s top climate official warning there is "no excuse" for inaction after bleak new forecasts.

Link

Those were the bleak U.N. forescasts he is talking about, the same reports which the U.N.'s top climate official admitted were fabricated hype designed to create a false sense of urgency.

A reduction in the rate of increase is NOT a cut

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) - Developing nations that are fast industrializing, such as China and India, have braked their rising greenhouse gas emissions by more than the total cuts demanded of rich nations by the U.N.'s Kyoto Protocol.

FALSE: Kyoto mandates actual cuts, not reductions in the rate of growth. How retarded do you have to be to not understand the difference?

This story also contains the often repeated lie: "President George W. Bush pulled the United States out of Kyoto in 2001"

The truth is that in 1997 the senate voted 95-0 against becoming a Kyoto signatory, in 1998 The Goracle signed the Kyoto Protocal anyway.  The Clinton administration never submitted Kyoto to the Senate for ratification.  In 2001 Bush made it clear that his administration was not going to seek ratification either.
