Violent ideological Weathermen, an increasingly overwrought Weatherman teetering on the edge of insanity, and finally, we'll meet a Weatherman paid to produce skewed meteorological results

You don’t need a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows

“You don’t need a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows.”
Bob Dylan - Honest Weatherman, singer, songwriter, who wrote the title
Bill Ayers - Bomb tossing Weatherman, gadfly
Al Gore - Screaming Weatherman, possible pauper
Dr. James Hansen - Shilling Weatherman, Soros employee

When I first became a cop in the early 1970s, we were all on the look out for armed groups who were plaguing the US.  We were dealing with the Black Liberation Army, the Black Panther Party, the SDS (the Students for a Democratic Society, who were for anything but), the Symbionese Liberation Army, which had kidnapped Patty Hearst, and the Weathermen.  And when I say look out, I mean in addition to the daily bank robberies, residential and commercial burglaries, rapes, murders, drive by shootings, and the like which still plague Los Angeles today.

Two of the most well known of the violent Weathermen, a splinter group of the non-meteorological SDS, were Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, suspected of the murderous nail bombing of a San Francisco police station in February of 1970, which killed one police officer and blinded another. As Weathermen, they advocated extreme violence, the overthrow of the US government, the killing of some 25 million US citizens to consolidate power, then clear skies, sunny days, and the singing of the Internationale forever. Cool, hip Weathermen.

While Bill and Bernardine became friends with President Barack "Sunny" Obama and no doubt pass highly gripping bits of meteorological yore to him, the highly volatile Al Gore has become a Weatherman as well, in order, many folks say, to protect the millions he has sunk into the Weatherman industries of cap and trade parlors, carbon trading floors, and vast new alternative industries. And Al, currently sans Tipper, places a lot of his dough in Generation Investment Management, through which he and other beautiful people pay for their offsets.

This firm invests this melt water river of money in solar, wind and other projects which span the globe and for which he tailors every speech, and crafts every bit of policy (Read more on Al’s massive holdings...)  Albert Gore Jr. is become Elmer Gantry and the Holy Writ is become a sheaf of P&L’s for GIM, since Al Gore had flunked out of the seminary.

Yup, an increasingly portly Al Gore is now a bloviating barker for the sake of his own holdings and those of his fellow satraps.  And he just can’t afford to see, hear or speak, literally, on any sort of real science about the sun, volcanism, deep sea methanes, the interruption of the Gulf Stream conveyor belt with fresh water, or any other real scientific idea on global warming or cooling with a solid basis in fact.  Oh, no, no, no, it’s got to be some sort of frightening wives’ tale for Al to holler about, like the tides lapping at the tip of Mt. Washington, and using the antenna on the top of the Empire State Building to anchor a whistling buoy.

Naysayers to Al’s ceaseless diatribes on man made global warming are like the early Christians of yesteryear plaguing Nero, or poor Al, and poor he’ll be if the global temps continue falling as they have since 1999, since Al doesn’t own a Coliseum and can’t yet legally, though I’m sure he’s on the phone with those two supreme climacteric geniuses, Obama and Biden, asking for one, to throw the Christians to the lions, bears, wolves, Democrats, Code Pinks, and Bob Beckel.

When the climate naysayers rear their ugly heads anywhere, it seems Al really gets hot under his 20 1/2 collar.

The former vice president and climate crusader told an Aspen Institute communications seminar last Thursday that people who doubt climate science are the same ones who helped tobacco companies over four decades question the dangers of cigarette smoking.

“Some of the exact same people — by name I can go down a list of their names — are involved in this,” Gore said. “And so what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullsh-t! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullsh-t! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullsh-t!”

“There about 10 names out there,” Gore hollered. “When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again. They have polluted the sh—. There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea!” (Thanks to Free Republic) But more and more people have an idea that Al is going out of his mind, and former US Vice President Al Gore and his dream of billions and billions of dollars in crazy climate profits is circling the drain.

So now we have two violent ideological Weathermen, an increasingly overwrought Weatherman teetering on the edge of insanity, and finally, we’ll meet a Weatherman paid to produce skewed meteorological results.

We’re all familiar with controversy which has swirled around James Hansen at NASA like a tropical storm or a whirlpool bath.  But lately this benighted Weatherman is in the hip deep slush again.  Why?

According to Fox News (6/22/2011), Chris Horner of the American Tradition Institute has filed suit against Weatherman Hansen because, “Teaching, writing, or speaking is to be avoided if it is related to his taxpayer funded employment… But according to the people stroking the checks, it’s often directly for his work for the taxpayer.”  Seems so to me.

Since many of James Hansen’s so called “figures” are used by those who are always beating me over the head because I dare to be a “climate” denier since I don’t think man is totally and absolutey completely responsible for climate change, I think you’d be surprised who has paid Weatherman Hansen for his ever changing work, ever changing because net rangers often find large error in his calculations forcing him to change his formulae, his calculations, and his, gasp, no, not that, his results.

So, let’s take a look:  Dan David Foundation - a good part of a million dollars; The Blue Planet Prize - $550,000; Sophie Prize - $100,000; speaking fees (as of 6/22/2011) $48,164; The Clinton Foundation - a $15,000 fee waiver for attending a water conference; and last but most important, George Soros’ Open Society Institute - $720,000.

So, we can see that the largest contributor to James Hansen, and hence by far the individual who will request the most from Dr. Hansen, and perhaps lead the famed ‘scientist’ in the same direction that Mr. Soros does for the Democratic Party through his many 521 outfits.  But in the end, Dr. James Hansen is nothing but a paid climacteric shill for writing, producing, and posting figures which match the dreams of the human caused climate change crowd, which real science can safely refute.

In the end, what kind of Weathermen do we have?  Two violent ones, who may have a decided impact on their pal, the current US president.  One who may be loudly going totally insane because his dreams of a vast city of gold thanks to pseudo-climatology are under threat of being lost in the eye of an honest scientific storm.  And a defrocked Weatherman who is simply a paid pseudo-climate accomplice and mere employee of George Soros.
