Warming Hoax Rolls On: Skeptical Weathermen Must Be Counseled
'Counseling' skeptic weathermen ... Taxpayer money goes to alarmist Heidi Cullen so that she can "create places" where skeptics can be converted without "marginalizing" them. Greenwire reports in "Can counseling help weathercasters reconcile clashing climate views?" ... George Mason University's conflict resolution workshop program for media weather forecasters can be compared to marriage counseling, said climate scientist Heidi Cullen. "It's sort of based on the same premise," said Cullen, a former Weather Channel correspondent who is now interim CEO of a nonprofit news and research organization, Climate Central. The program is designed to bridge the gap between broadcast meteorologists who do not believe in man-made climate change and those who do — a disagreement that has created antagonism within the profession. − junkscience.com
Dominant Social Theme: If you don't believe, then you need to be counseled.
Free-Market Analysis: So now, as it used to be Communist China, those who do not believe the government line shall be "counseled" until they recant.
OK, that's not exactly what we're seeing (see above) but it's close. Not that we're involved with factual accuracy anymore. We seem to have moved on from that to a "reconciliation" of views. The idea is that consensus is more important than accuracy.
This again seems to indicate to us that the power elite, currently trying to create one-world government, is starting to run out of ideas. What we call the Internet Reformation has damaged the dominant social themes that the elites have relied on to fool middle classes into giving up power and wealth to globalist institutions.
One of the biggest of these fear-based promotions was global warming, now called climate change. The elites that run a massive promotional empire extending from think tanks to universities and the mainstream media itself, had counted on their control of society when it came to these promotions.
But more and more pushback is taking place. And the result is that other techniques are being tried. Here's some more from the article:
George Mason social scientist Sara Cobb, who runs the program, says it is designed to let people tell their stories about climate change and hear others do the same in a supportive, open environment. "It's not about changing their minds or propaganda or anything like that," she said ... Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the workshops have run as side events during American Meteorological Society meetings...
"When the other groups realize that they have participated in denigrating and delegitimizing and marginalizing the 'no group' — and what it feels like — it's a comeuppance," she said. "It's a really interesting perspective. Because then the conversation is no longer about who has the best science, and it's really about how do we go about creating places where we can deliberate in ways that don't marginalize people"...
Of course, there likely IS a right and wrong. See this video below based on an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal. The article pointed out that there has been NO global warming for the past decade according to 16 scientists who had closely evaluated the data.
What was the result of the scientific community reactions? Many wrote to the scientists offended they'd not had a chance to sign the article as well.

Good for him?

How funny is this! "It's not about changing their minds or propaganda, or anything like that" Ms. Cobb says. I say that is EXACTLY what it is. Notice her title-SOCIAL scientist? Nice try. "They tell their stories about climate change and hear others do the same." :-) "They" have and we have-not buying it.

THE MESSIAH OF GLOBAL WARMING:
If memory serves me right, was there a bloke called Al Bore or was it Al Gore who preached his gospel of Global Warming not only to America, but to the rest of the world?
He had his Big Charts pointing out how high the temperature had risen in the past thousand years, that he had to get a step-ladder to reach it on his chart.
Could someone dig him out of the "hole" he is hiding in & ask him his opinion on the latest findings?
Good thing he never became President!
As thick as Bush was, you didn't hear him "Bull Dunging" about Global Warming!

This is all well and good but, I've already seen many articles and interviews, indicating the elite are now going at it from a different perspective. Now, they are saying the reason the planet isn't warming is, the oceans are cleaning the atmosphere and the oceans are becoming more acidic... killing off the sea life.
For the elite, and especially the bankers, there are hundreds of trillions of dollars "at risk" of not being collected in carbon taxes. They are not going to give up on this so easily. This story is not over.

In Communist China and North Korea, it was called "Re-education Camps".

The professor says he believes CO2 can raise the temperature but not to the extent it was predicted. He states the data (temps) are inferred not actually measured directly. Others make a case that it is almost impossible to measure the earths temperature given the myriad of variables. The interviewer seems almost excited to try to dispel the realities of man made environmental pollution. We can very accurately measure the pollution of our fresh water. Of course this was not the topic but the interviewer insinuated and I therefore must point out that polluted water and soil is a separate measurable entity from increased CO2. By the way, my area of this planet has had the mildest winter in 24 years: thunderstorms in Jan. and Feb. and virtually zero snow. But we had the same scenario in 1988.

The best thing for all of us to do is to e-mail this story to our local weathermen. We have to supplant the mainstream media. Plus, it's fun to
be a troublemaker.

Heidi Cullen is a global warming Nazi. I can't stomach the woman. Some scientist! No weather forecaster who disagrees with her should be allowed to be licensed. Disgusting. Like the climate changing is some big new dangerous thing that humans caused by driving and heating their homes. These creeps hate people.

There is NOTHING "Nazi" about any of this. That's a very trendy, checkout counterish comment, but maybe a lesson in the BASICS will help alleviate your fundamental ignorance. Let's look at the names that maintain the "humans cause global warming thru CO2 emissions" fraud; shall we? Stephen Schneider from Stanford; remember him? Carl Sagan from Cornell; remember him? Or how about the current NASA nutcase James "Death Trains" Hansen; you know that name don't you? (See: Click to view link )
Cullen is one of their sayanim; she is a global warming Bolshevik.
Is any of this getting through that trendy skull of your?

What's the DB's take on "kony 2012"?
It appears that the one-world-government gang has switched from their failed "environmentalist" excuses to the more plausible "humanitarian" excuse.
(Remember, Libya was a humanitarian war - Gaddafi was an evil person! I'm not sure what the immediate goal of "Kony 2012" is, but it looks like the longer term goal is to firmly establish "humanitarianism" as grounds for some sort of international justice system)

Kony 2012 is a perfect example of the Internet Reformation in our view.
In the 20th century, the Kony promotion would have swept the world. In the 21st century it founders in a week. The entire blogosphere seemingly rose up against it.
The elite's dominant social themes are increasingly unworkable. New fear-based promotions designed to promote world government are actually doing the REVERSE by providing object lessons of visible propaganda.
This propaganda was not visible pre-Internet. But much as the Gutenberg Press exposed the corruption of Rome, so the modern technology exposes the current conspiracy.
