Goose-stepping into gorebull warming?

From the Middlebury Community Network comes this lengthy (I ‘printed’ it as a 26-page pdf file) gem that early on links goose-stepping and gorebull global warming. It starts off with an ‘editorial introductory note’:

Our planet has been slowly warming since last emerging from the “Little Ice Age” of the 17th century…

I have to interrupt here. More like the 13th century. My source is the book “The Little Ice Age” which I read earlier this year. Even their source (Wikipedia) says the 14th century. Could be a typo. We continue:

...often associated with the Maunder Minimum.  Before that came the “Medieval Warm Period”, in which temperatures were about the same as they are today.

Another interruption. Sorry. Temps were higher then, as proved the fact that the Vikings colonized Greenland at the time.

Both of these climate phenomena are known to have occurred in the Northern Hemisphere, but several hundred years prior to the present, the majority of the Southern Hemisphere was primarily populated by indigenous peoples, where science and scientific observation was limited to non-existent.  Thus we can not say that these periods were necessarily “global”.

However, “Global Warming” in recent historical times has been an undisputable fact, and no one can reasonably deny that.

Actually, I can reasonably deny it. Anyone who peruses the actual temperature graphs can’t help but notice that little statistical phenomena called the margin-of-error, which is usually left out of graphs shown on the news. Indeed it is not even mentioned.

But we’re hearing far too often that the “science” is “settled”, and that it is mankind’s contribution to the natural CO2 in the atmosphere has been the principal cause of an increasing “Greenhouse Effect”, which is the root “cause” of global warming.  We’re also hearing that “all the world’s scientists now agree on this settled science”, and it is now time to quickly and most radically alter our culture, and prevent a looming global catastrophe.  And last, but not least, we’re seeing a sort of mass hysteria sweeping our culture which is really quite disturbing.  Historians ponder how the entire nation of Germany could possibly have goose-stepped into place in such a short time, and we have similar unrest.  Have we become a nation of overnight loonies?

In a word, Yes. At this point the narrative breaks to show several pictures of loonies protesting. I’m particularly bemused by the last one on the right. The sign says ‘Global Warming Costs Lives’. As indeed it will, if the loonies’ ‘fixes’ are actually put into effect.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
