The Worst Case Scenario for 2015?

Downtown Burnaby, circa 2018

Down-town Burnaby BC, circa 2024

James Howard Kunstler — “Forecast 2015, Life in the Breakdown Lane”.

I must say that I do not see some of Mr Kunstler’s forecasts actually coming to pass in 2015, yet I can’t help but feel he is very accurately describing current conditions — therefore some of his predictions may simply realise later, rather than sooner. It is certainly appropriate to use the term “dark age” to describe our future if we continue on the path we are on. An interesting read at the very least. While this is an American centred thesis, it is not difficult to connect the dots as relates to Canada’s prospects for 2015 and beyond. The Elephant and the Mouse sharing the same bed, as they say.

Cook’s Fake Ethics Approval


The following pretty much sums up why I am a climate heretic. For some it may seem like just so much “inside baseball” which makes me very sad. If only folks would open their eyes to the lies and mendacity. It permeates everything these days.

rater_pie_thumbnail For over a year, John Cook and the University of Queensland have repeatedly refused Richard Tol’s requests for information on rater ID and timestamps for the SKS ratings for Cook et al 2013. Recently there have been two events that shed new light on the dispute. First, in mid-May Brandon Shollenberger located the requested information online without password protection, which he placed online a few days ago. The new information shows that the majority of ratings were done by coauthors and nearly all ratings were done by coauthors and named acknowledgees, rather than by anonymous volunteers. Second, Simon Turnill received an FOI response from the University, that showed that the University did not make ANY confidentiality agreements with SKS raters. More surprisingly, Cook had done the SKS ratings program without submitting an ethics application for this program or obtaining ethics approval. Previously, both Cook and the University of Queensland had…

The First Post In A New Series Called “Harmonious Dissonance”.

dissonancecutRichard Fernandez has penned an excellent essay titled “Vanishing Point” which features here as the first in a new series titled; Harmonious Dissonance.

Vanishing Point

Welcome to the world of forced perspective; where Eich can get pilloried for voting the wrong way on Proposition 8 and Kevin Rose can get picketed for being able to buy stuff from the people who are picketing him.  It lifts the lid on a strange world. A place where Vladimir Putin, al-Qaeda, and or asteroids from space don’t exist except as things that George Bush should have taken care of; it gives a glimpse into a universe where gas drilling is just a bad word and the armed forces a job where crazy people earn a living whenever they’re not driving pickup trucks; it provides a peek into a tableau where people actually think food comes from the store and gas comes from the gas pump and money to house everyone in the woods will come from Google’s $3 billion in spare change.

I expect professor Fernandez to be a frequent source for this series.
