Seems like someone isn’t on board with the Global Warming crusade. We need a representative to get up there to Alaska now and start brainwashing procedures level 4. There are a couple rebel glaciologists up there that we need to deal with IMMEDIATELY!! They have the crazy notion that their glaciers are growing, hahaha. Where have these guys been for the last 5 years? If anyone from the GWFL ( Global Warming Frontal Lobotomy) can read this, we need your assistance now. These guys are reporting that this past summer is the worst they have seen in 20 years!

Well, more bad news for Global Warming Fanatics. Today a story is being reported on BBC news regarding a freak hailstorm that covered the ground with a white blanket some 4 inches deep covering over 100 acres that was still visible 12 hours after the storm.

There is a good reference to the story as well as links to other stories around the globe of unprecedented events that indicate that the earth is actually cooling here.

The recent inactivity of sunspots on the Solar disk is being hypothesized as the culprit to these cooling events.

As if the news could not get worse, officials halted searches today for victims of Saturdays ferry disaster. Apparently the MV Pricess Of the Stars was carrying some 10 tons of toxic pesticides. Sulpicio Lines was carrying some 400 boxes of endosulfan. This pesticide is highly toxic and has the potential to be very damaging to the environment. Now we have an environmental disaster playing out.

What a mess they have there now. They can’t get the bodies from the craft until they take care of this pesticide. Absolutely terrible news. This pesticide if it leaks will wreak havoc with the environment there. There is no way this should have been aboard a passenger ship and the level of toxicity is very high. Sulpicio Lines will be held accountable for this as well.

I was taking a look at the new google trends site this morning and wondered why Philippines News was one of the highest search trends for today. When I clicked on the link I found out why. A ferry took off from Manila bound for Cebu yesterday while Typhoon Fengshen was bearing down on the Philippines.

This is a tragedy that never should have happened. Why would the ferry captain take off with all those passengers knowing there was a storm headed on course for their sailing destination? Well, knowing personally having been to the PH several times and been on these ferries, it’s not so surprising. Regard for human life is not as important there as getting the job done and collecting the fare. Such a needless tragedy and sickening to think that it could have been avoided. There are more maritime tragedies there than anywhere else in the world if I am not mistaken.

In any case, I feel for all those people and their families and friends. Terrible news. Not to mention the effects of the typhoon itself and the devastation and flooding it has caused.

Imagine guys under the cover of night, moving through the city, planting corn seeds, cucumbers and squash. The audacity of these urban criminals. What on earth can such people be thinking? I’m sure they will meet the stiffest penalty of the law should they be found and brought to justice. Imagine when people finally find out about them, I can hear the cries now —- “NOT IN MY BACKYARD!!!” Gotta check it out, it’s a growing trend across a few cities like San Francisco, Miami, London, Berlin.

I have been reading reports recently suggesting that Global Warming is an unsubstantiated theory. In fact it could be quite the opposite. I did a google search on Global Glaciers and found a rather interesting report from National Geographic magazine from Sept. 11th, 2006. Rather than suggest that the glaciers are shrinking, the report states quite emphatically that there are alot of glaciers that are growing and that the summer temperatures in these areas are getting lower! Is there something you missed in your data Al? How did you skip over this?

Read the report yourself and see what conclusions you draw:

Interested in knowing what people think about this!!

I came across an article today that spoke of “Ecohackers” posted on the Guardian.co.uk website. Wow, what an interesting read. Some of the ideas that scientists have for staving off Global Warming. Absolutely astounding. How about this one:

Roger Angel, director of the Center for Astronomical Adaptive Optics at the University of Arizona, is looking to the stars rather than the sea. He wants to put a mesh of tiny light refractors into space to sit between the Earth and the sun. The material would bend some of the sun’s rays away from the planet.

“It’s probably the most expensive and the cleanest,” says Angel, who would need 16 trillion gossamer-light spacecraft, each sitting about a kilometre apart. Roughly 5m tonnes of material would be shot into space by a large magnetic railgun seated at the top of a mountain near the equator. Other than the $1tn (£500bn) launch cost, the other downside would be the 30 years needed to get them up there.

What I would like to know of course is who is funding these studies? I think we are beginning to see the first signs of the misappropriations of funds that has been started by our good pal Al Gore in diverting money that could be more WISELY spent on REAL issues. I encourage you to read the full report and formulate your own conclusion. Even NASA has recently stated that we are headed to a period of global cooling for the next 30 years. These studies are preposterous, not to mention mind numbingly DUMB ideas!!! Feedback?
