“In an unprecedented move Wednesday, the Norwegian Nobel Committee rescinded the Peace Prize it awarded in 2007 to former US vice president Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, amid overwhelming evidence that global warming is an elaborate hoax cooked up by Mr. Gore.
A press release from the committee quotes a chagrined Rajendra Pachauri, the UN climate panel’s chair, who claims that he was the victim of a “cunning deception spanning decades”:”
Too good! 😆 The only place the Denier claims belong is an April Fools column. Kudos to the Christian Science Monitor.
Whoops – I may be updating this throughout the day …
“Clean coal enthusiasts got a boost today when ConAgra scientists released news that a new form of genetically modified corn was able to absorb one thousand times it’s weight in co2, effectively solving global warming, making clean coal a possibility, and creating a ten fold increase in the amount of ethanol produced per acre.”
“A document released this morning reveals that a group of oil executives from Exxon, Shell, and BP admit to fraud, deception, and outright lies in the climate change argument, and have agreed to donate $125 billion to an environmental fund focused on halting all CO2 emissions worldwide.
The document, released after an all-night meeting which ended in tears and an environmental epiphany, states that all of the profits from oil production last year will be divided equally among the world’s leading environmental research organizations. The donation is an effort to atone for the obscene amount of money made from extracting and refining fossil fuels in 2008 at the expense of global health. read more at Twilight Earth
“China’s Environmental Protection Ministry today announced asweeping new initiative to combat climate change.
“We have drawn up a ten-year plan to turn the Chinese landscape white in order to reflect heat back into space,” a Ministry spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman told journalists that researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences had calculated that turning the predominant color of the Chinese landscape white, would be equivalent to removing 10,000 billion tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.” read more at china.org.cn
RealClimate: Farewell to our Readers
“We would like to apologize to our loyal readers who have provided us so much support since we first went online in December 2004. However, after listening to the compelling arguments of the distinguished speakers who participated in the Heartland Institute‘s recent global warming contrarian conference, we have decided that the science is settled — in favor of the contrarians.”

“Mr. Smartypants Al Gore has been making a living telling us all about this so-called global warming. He even tricked the Nobel Committee into giving him a Nobel Prize for this crap. Well, I’m here to tell ya that it only took me a few minutes with the Google to prove him wrong. If global warming is happening, how is it that over 50 years ago, the BBC reported that the winter of 1956-1957 was “exceptionally mild” in Europe?”

“In a move that sharply contrasts with his carefully cultivated public persona, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh, the self-proclaimed Leader of the Republican Party, has become the latest spokesperson for controversial animal rights group PETA. A tearful Limbaugh admitted in a press conference this morning that animals and the environment are his true passion, and he’s tired of living “the conservative lie”.”
(OK, not climate related, but still …)

Nice … the Way Things Break hoax is to simply post a Denier video … underscoring the point that on Denier sites it’s always April 1st.

“The world’s climate experts have long been making some very dire predictions about Global Warming. Because they are predictions, they rely very heavily on computer models.
Other people chose to rely on the scientific consensus. Honesty compels me to admit that I was in this group. We didn’t think think the consensus was the last word, but we did believe it was the best window to the future a non-specialist could look through.
So this part really hurts me to write. But I have to.
The data testing key parts of the global warming consensus are now available.
The consensus of climate experts were wrong. Absolutely, verifiably wrong. The computer models were wrong. They simply do not match reality.”

“It is gratifying to have the vast platform of the Texas Public School System to advance alternative theories about Global Warming. The media along with certain elements based in East Coast cities as well as Hollywood and San Francisco have been effectively promoting a flawed theory involving something they call Greenhouse Gas Theory.
The many flaws in Greenhouse Gas Theory do not typically get aired. Alternative views have been given altogether too short of a shrift.
Therefore I call on my fellow scientists to do everything possible to create a fair presentation of the main alternative hypothesis, the hypothesis of Interventionist Carbohydrates. (Now, that is quite a mouthful, so we can call it “IC” for short.)
Here is a graph showing how the flawed Greenhouse Gas Theory fails to account for observations:”

“I was wrong. Indeed, it would seem I’ve been laboring under a misapprehension for the last couple of decades. Anthropogenic global warming is, after all, a fraud, a colossal scheme designed to subvert the very foundations of modern civilization in a favor of a socialist world government that controls every aspect of our lives down to the air fresheners in our bathrooms.
How have I come to this conclusion, one that I will admit is in direction contradiction to just about everything I have written on the subject since the late 1980s? It wasn’t any one piece of evidence. Rather, it’s more like I finally allowed several disparate streams of thought to coalesce into a coherent picture, one that makes so much sense it’s hard to believe I haven’t always known, deep within my psyche, that it was true. Here a few of those threads.”

Looks like I will be adding more as I find them. Mind you, for pure ridiculousness these posts are not really that different from reading the Denialosphere the other 364 days a year …
We give our consent every moment that we do not resist.
Denier “Challenge” aka Deathwatch Update: Day 158 … still no evidence.
