And the Orwell Prize for Journalism 2010 goes to...


and if George's counter-intuitive contradiction of what he and others have been claiming for years is a little difficult to swallow, here's some independent corroboration of George's new 'Cold is Warm' paradigm from some twunt who doesn't understand how fridges work...

With All This Global Warming, Why is it So Cold?
Eric Haxthausen

"The explanation that is gaining currency among climate scientists is that low levels of Arctic sea ice during the summer are causing more heat to be absorbed in the Arctic during the fall, and changing atmospheric circulation pattern, driving cold Arctic air into Europe and the Eastern United States and funneling warm air up into the Arctic regions.

This warm Arctic-cold continents pattern is likened to leaving the refrigerator door open. The room gets colder but the fridge warms up."


Fortunately, there is, however, a planet-saving solution at hand.

Scrolling near to the bottom of this page of real-time UK electricty production stats, you can see that windfarms are contributing something like a mighty 0.1% of the UK's current electricty needs...

Which means that if the UK government sticks something like £300,000-500,000 a year on the average household's energy bill and gives that money to the aristocracy to build lots of lovely new windmills on 'their' land the British will have done their bit to keep global climate exactly the same as it was 20 years ago, for ever

Ooops, that's just for the electricity and doesn't include natural gas, heating oil and petrol consumption. Better make that £1,000,000+ per year per household.

And, obviously, the UK wouldn't have to build quite so many wind farms if we constructed a national grid of rechargeable batteries the size of Battersea Power Station to store up energy when its really windy so we can use it when it's not really windy


It's easy enough to believe that AGW Climate Change prophets like George Monbiot are essentially decent, well-meaning types who haven't quite thought things through. I'd be a lot more convinced if they weren't rich, hypocritical fuckers who are wealthy enough not to suffer from, and will actually profit from, the consequences of the corrupt 'solutions' they are advocating

I posted on the Graun story and was deleted : 'Sure, the cold hid the evidence about the Climategate emails'

It seems 'Climategate'joins a list of words banned by the mighty Graun.

not a bad performance from a man who looks like he's just been electrocuted

meanwhile, Monbiot's sojourn in Bizarro World continues...

The cold claims lives while energy companies get rich

...where George complains aboout the death toll associated with artificially inflated energy costs

What a c**t

and merry 'borrowed' pagan solar festival to you

'he's an interesting character'


the torrent, like the Truth, is out there

reading the Villa Road note from your link, Stef, reminds me of the lie that is the labour party.

If property is theft then paying rent without receiving equity is theft. Why didn't the labour party make this practice illegal?

Curiously, the person who did convert rental payments into equity purchase was Thatcher in her council house sales.

Monbiot gets a mention in the following interview, "Peer Review as Censorship".

An interesting article about peer review that wanders into global warming and manages to take a swipe at Dawkins and his ilk.

the orwell prize goes to the strange fucks that raged against the khodorkovsky show trial and the sheridan show trial.

everyone knows only little people are supposed to go to jail

tempting as it is to award the Conspiraloon version of the Orwell prize to those are comparing Khodorkovsky to Solzhenitsyn, the publicly funded marketing arm of the pharmaceutical industry is racing to the top of the list with its coverage of the latest flu scamdemic

This piece, for example, includes some lovely Orwellian flourishes which wouldn't welcome too much scrutiny...
