Blame it on big oil – Greenpeace found the emails to counter the scientist’s emails that show they manipulated the data.
The action was meant to protest the US oil industry’s plans to have oil company employees attend anti-US climate action rallies while masquerading as concerned “Energy Citizens.” This Energy Citizens campaign is an attempt to use a tactic known as “astroturfing,” in which they give the appearance of a genuine grassroots movement while hiding the fact that it is actually a well-funded effort coordinated by large multinational corporations with a vested interest in preventing any new regulations of their dirty energy business.
Good Old Zen Dog has a plan:
Here’s an idea.
Find the local nut job. You know, the angry white man who foams at the mouth, and doesn’t know why.
It’s just stimulus response, and you can harness it. It isn’t right of course. No, it isn’t. That’s alright. We will continue to produce more people like that every year, unless it can be demonstrated that this process can be interdicted, and turned to uses unenvisioned by the engineers of this process.
So here is how it works:
— Identify the foaming at the mouth wing nut, [he’s angry, using the English langue to form inintelligible verbal constructs of rage, and wearing a ‘tin foil hat’]
— observe the subject – WITHOUT INTERACTING – to determine that stimulus most likely to result in rage response
— During the observation period wear t-shirts affiliated with local university, blend in with that crowd so that later it will appear to have been just another behavioral quiz gone ary – [you haven’t heard the quiz? It comes with questions like: Are you master of your own domain? What’s the nature of your sexuality? What do you believe about God and spirituality? How suggestable are you? that kind of thing.]
— Once the rage stimulus has been identified, surround the subject with t-shirts bearing the logo of the local Oil Industry office, and present rage inducing stimuli. Repeat until desired detonation takes place.
To achieve maximum effect, create a national advertising campaign, one that using the tools of behavioral advertising foreshadows the detonation event, and be sure to incorporate the slogan FIST BUMP FIREWORKS. To increase effectiveness of the behavioral advertising, a bit of truth on this point may be greatly beneficial, and that would be achieved by attaching the FIST BUMP FIREWORKS slogan to an icon representing the general population, the average Joe.
[Fist Bump Fireworks is, to my understanding, a slogan first used in an advertising campaign paid for by McDonald’s that first aired in the Vermont area on the same day DR. GEORGE TILLER was shot by the same type of individual I am suggesting be used above.]
Sounds crazy? That’s alright. I’m headed over to an NRA website now, to invite them up to Vermont for another gun protest. Never mind. I’m sure you don’t want to know.
They are off to a good start. Crazy people that are desperately trying to save their cause.
As Lord Lawson wrote in his book, those worried about imminent environmental catastrophe, as compared, for examples, to nuclear terrorism or even large meteoric collisions, “need not worry about saving this planet. They are already living on another one … We appear to have entered a new age of unreason … It is from this, above all, that we really need to save the planet.”
And finally, a good reason to keep spewing C02:
Talk about a Eureka moment. Scientists at Sandia National Labs, seeking a means to create cheap and abundant hydrogen to power a hydrogen economy, realized they could use the same technology to “reverse-combust” CO2 back into fuel. Researchers still have to improve the efficiency of the system, but they recently demonstrated a working prototype of their “Sunshine to Petrol” machine that converts waste CO2 to carbon monoxide, and then syngas, consuming nothing but solar energy.
