Daily noodling

“Most any spiritual tradition asks us to believe things that may at first seem implausible. However, some degree of ‘belief in the unbelievable’ may actually be a necessary component of deconditioning ourselves to the narrow and restricted consensus reality of our particular culture.” Gagdad in the Coonifesto

The Guru who refers to himself as a Coon is swinging from a fruitful branch these days. If your spiritual life needs a lantern, check it out.


Environmentalism?

A decent review of why the right is so hostile to the political greens, from a libertarian forum, Q & O

Bill McKibben wonders why the right is so down on man-made global warming. He’s convinced it’s the hottest thing to come along politically since woman’s suffrage. What is it we folks on the right don’t get?

I’ve been holding on to the link to the letter of resignation of Harold Lewis from the Society of Physics. He writes a damning summary of how science has been politicized. Lewis’s resignation letter is linked here.

excerpted

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.

And that’s plenty…. I’ll go for a photo and call it a night


Now the kalideoscope filter is playing with my brain… a lot

    MSM will try to keep this quiet just like last week’s global warming scandal.

    If you aren’t familiar with the 10:10 dust up, see the videos below.

    While watching the first one, ask yourself if it’s sincere or if 10:10 is being pranked on by skeptics.

    Keep watching until you’re sure, and then watch more.

    Note: the resignations of Chris Landsea and Roger A Pielke SR. both hint at conspiracy.

    Landsea resigned because of an unethical press conference that was likely used by Al Gore as a green light to build his movie around Hurricane Katrina.

    Pielke resigned because while lead author for a major climate report, scientists worked behind his back to undermine him. These incidents are well known and not hard to research.

    Even if you are familiar with the 10:10 thing, there’s a variety of over the top eco stuff in the playlist.
