ATT-MMS-FAIL

No doubt AT&T will still charge you a Quarter per MMS you send AND RECEIVE with their amazing Grab-Your-Ankles Data Plan – which does not include text (and likely not MMS, when it is available…late this summer.)

Therefore – AT&T wins their second (yes, they count as Cingular – one and the same…) Jar-Jar Award for Raising Teh SuXX0R!

Great Moments in Climate Science: Government sees increasing hurricane strength – despite data

By government – I mean President-Elect Obama, but it is more important to remember that when people are warning about global catastrophes – despite the evidence, the end concern is always – what will government force you to do about it. Here’s the Obama quote:

“Few challenges facing America — and the world – are more urgent than combating climate change,” he says in the video. “The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking. We’ve seen record drought, spreading famine, and storms that are growing stronger with each passing hurricane season. Climate change and our dependence on foreign oil, if left unaddressed, will continue to weaken our economy and threaten our national security.”

And here’s an actual graph of cyclone strength metrics:

Firstly – only someone who does not understand the methodology and process of science would say something foolish like, “The science is beyond dispute.” Science cannot be “closed” as I have written before. (You can read a bit more about this concept here.) Whenever anyone tells you “the science is closed,” especially concerning something vastly complex like global climate change, you should be skeptical.

Second – If you look at the graph on cyclone strength – the idea that, “storms … are growing stronger with each passing hurricane season,” is false. Cyclone strength has, in fact, risen – then fallen dramatically over the past decade or two. In the last five years – in particular, we have seen a dramatic drop-off in cyclone strength.

But then again -as far as public policy goes – since when did actual data matter, especially since we have such a great thing going with this whole Global Warming frenzy? People are already totally convinced that it will bring about our impending doom, and since it’s a “global problem” who else are they going to turn to to “fix it?”

Hint: Starts with “gov,” ends with “ment.”

Closing thought: If global warming is such an existential threat to mankind that we must immediately take major government action – why hasn’t President-Elect Obama, or Al Gore, or anyone for that matter – set up a single day of hearings to consider arguments from credible scientists on both sides of this issue?

The answer is simple: Because they fear having their belief challenged. And the only people who are afraid to have their beliefs challenged, are those who either know their belief to be false, or don’t know enough to know their belief is true (and how to defend it).

Bikes, not Brains: Consider Awareness of Logical Contradiction Raised

Consider the following (emphasis mine):

 

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Student volunteers from colleges around New York State braved freezing cold temperatures on their bikes Wednesday to send a message to state and federal political candidates: pay attention to climate change.

The New York Public Interest Research Group helped organize the ride. Environmentalists cheered on the bikers as they stopped in Utica around noon. They want candidates to let voters know what they plan to do about global warming and the energy crisis.
