Quote of the Day, part 94


It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.


Yup. The man who invented the word "Gaia" thinks us humans are too stupid to do anything about climate change. Guess what? He's right. The climate has been changing for 4 billion years and will continue to change for the next 4 billion years and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

I also heard him on R4 this morning screaming that 7-10 million will die in the UK alone from "climate change" (at which point the radio went out the window. Again)

On the plus side, he's 90. Can't be long now.

I'd quite like the barmey old shitter and his tribesmen to fix us a steady 24 degrees with moderate sunshine and only a 5% chance before the "shock" cold snap kills him off at the end of this coming October. On a Thursday.

I'd not vote for that. Neither would the Germans, surprisingly.

He did not invent the word or the concept of Gaia. Gaea (mother earth) bore Typhon with Tartarus and along with Eros (sexual desire) they were the first creatures born from Chaos. Ordo ab Chao and all that. Same old shit fed to the masses down through the ages.

'Save the planet' no bollocks it's 'Save my Hippy Ass' more like.
As it happens it will be a Carbon belching fucking rocket built by burger eating 4x4 drivers which will save the planet...from a fucking asteroid.

Gaia "theory": the whole planet is a single organism. Like in "Avatar".

If that's what counts as a "theory" according to James Lovelock, then Christianity, Islam and Scientology are "theories" too, and no less supported by the evidence. He's a crank.. no more a scientist than the Pope.

Exactly my point. Just different high priests these days.

Don't worry Anon, according to your logic you'll be dead. So it won't matter to you.

hangemall said...

OH, I really do think there is something "glitchy" about your comments submission process since you changed over to ".net". I have seen people complaining about you censoring their comments and I believe you when you say you don't.

However, recently on a few occasions I have had to enter the WV twice before my comment would show up.

Also, earlier tonight I submitted something and a message came and said something like "It might take some time before your comment shows up."

Well I am back from the pub and it still isn't here. And I thought it rather amusing in a darkish sort of way.

So here it is again.

'Carbon belching fucking rocket built by burger eating 4x4 drivers.'


Rockets don't belch carbon. They belch water. Apart from that, in full agreement.

OH, I expect a poster of you, signed, 'cunt', in return for my measly conrtibution to your doomed (this time) but worthwhile (for the next time) election campaign.

Old Holborn said...

My pleasure

By the way, I've been offered a chieftan tank for my campaign

No really, I have.

Do you have any idea how much mischief a chieftan tank at Parliament would be?

dicalym said...

Whilst Lovelock's Gaia ideas are a tad potty, in this Guardian interview he does at times come across as a defender of the scientific method - don't fudge your data, be sceptical, the CRU emails should end careers, admit mistakes, accept the limits of computer models, etc.

Still has a gross authoritarian streak in him though.

Yes, but ask for a British-made Chieftain as the bootleg Chieftan tends to rust. The tracks on the 55ton beast will scrunch up the blacktop nicely and you should ask for HESH shells (good on buildings)and half a dozen spare engines and transmissions. If still fitted, the two FN MAG machine guns will be excellent for winning arguments.

As Imelda , the britpop solution to international roman catholic marxism, travelled up to Sedgefield in a Limo convoy (dont know if he stopped the traffic) , to summon up some support for the ruins "the sewers are not so bad vote for me " election campaign CW was a little puzzled the ruin had oked Imeldas gigs and the next 6 (what fun they will be) , mandelson was joyus and even prezza left the pies alone to sound a fog horn warning to passing oligarchs with wealth .

Yes the messiah Imelda has landed , but not taking questions "are you the messiah or just a naughty boy ?" was not allowed . Trying to heard the deluded back to the fold of spin ministry and 11 wierdly linked companies and a goverment stamped low tax status "not a non dom more global do gooder" .

But to the post , prof lovelock was/is a bit of hero for CW , but yet here I am faced with some very troubling questions which are difficult to tease out from what is clearly a scam.The climate has changed, is always changing ,CO2 it truns out was the wrong discussion and all the more so when you begin to question how carbon credits work , rather like cillit bang and do not cut other forms of pollution .

one of the seminal green books from the sixities "the silent spring" where the idea was put forward that by chucking more chemicals , herbicides and pesticides , would one day lead to some sort of toxic primary food chain that would kill off all the birds and important soil organisms, is not helped by all this greenwash .
Only this week we find some people have erm had investments in erm what the goverment has proposed ,who knows Imelda may have some . One story that went under the wires was a green power plant burning imported wood chips CW pondered how green it was to ship millions of tonnes of wood chips from europe to burn in the UK , still let that not stand in the way of a goverment grant or carbon credits .

Lovelock was right in trying to describe the big systems of the earth , pretty much most of life is dependent upon the gaseous constituancy and energy transfers as we as we know it is pretty unique in the universe , things live and die in certain biocehmical parameters or not at all in others, pointing that out is a vison of sorts.
There are the Greens who are EU socialist/liberals , but have remained strangely quiet over carbon credits and have back tracked on nuclear but are keen on making you feel miserable if you enjoy a steak or a hot pot.
Wind turbines have developed but will not provide enough stable electrcity supply , clean coal never was a solution despite millions being blown on secret developement groups and some have rushed back to nuclear , but cannot name a price or a site to bury the stuff for 25000 years without it affecting somthing or costing a lot.

The point for CW is not so much the change in hot or cold and wet and dry climate patterns (although these do cause resource problems some of which are directly attributal to corrupt goverments) , but what you do when somthing nasty and man made starts making some of natures ecosystems malfunction , carbon credits wil be about as much use as the ruin .Same goes for the ruins GM foods push , why should a company own a food supply , seed banks of climate suitable food crops are a way of keeping natural genetic diversity as well as basic right to grow your own without corporate meddling and profiteering.



I wonder if Imelda knows what a confession booth is for "opps sorry I thought it was the bank", well only another 6 speeches to go before election day , "all political careers ultimately end in failiure" , CW thinks he could seriously unravel Labour before election day , crowd puller or pulling somthing else, we shall see. Dont get distracted from the ruin is CW advice , Imelda is attracting his own mistakes unto his aura and may well be wishing for a time leap device by may 6th.

I heard him too. He said that either it will get colder, in which case all the Brits will fuck off to Spain, or it will get warmer, thus all the Spanish will fuck off to Britain.

I think he's a nut job, but a harmless and really quite pleasant one.

Grrrrrrrrrrr....BBC Pravda commie bastards said...

The radios in Lexus 4 x 4s are expensive.

I know because I have broken two in sheer rage - both occasions it was Pravda R4 Toady programme that caused me to strike said radio with much fury.

Listening to the senile old commie idiot this morning being given an easy ride made me break another.

The earth has been in a permanent state of flux since its inception - do the BBC the recycled communists who swapped their red flags for green flags really think they can freeze dry the earth at this particular epoc?

Unbelievable, truly gobsmackingly unbelievable. What happened to journalism in this country?

Catflap said...

Jim Baxter:
Thanks for the correction.But we can still no doubt say a lot of carbon is emmited in its construction.

By the way was I dreaming or did I hear that to avoid confusion in the event of a hung Parliament.
Brown would stay in office and so would ministers, even if they had lost their seats.
Gus O'Donnel is behind this plan saying it would avoid arguements.
FUCKING WHAT.

Reimer said...

Lovelock was on R5 a year or two ago ago talking about all the vast work necessary to get Britain ready to receive & accomodate the hordes of climate migrants uprooted by all this bollocks. Give me machine gun nests, minefields and a trigger-happy flying coastguard any day.

Kit said...

To be fair to Lovelock, he did say this

''Scientists, he says, have moved from investigating nature as a vocation, to being caught in a career path where it makes sense to "fudge the data".''

thelunaticarms said...

The EU is creeping in, trials without juries, anonymous accusers and a Parliamentary System that protects the Corrupt from the Deceived...
we need a total shake-up, and sadly, even if there is a hung parliament, the bastards that be will still squeeze us.

It is just 646. It is probably 250,000 subversives, all in it for the money and prestige (plus a little blackmail and scaremongering).

No wonder purges have been necessary. We don't need Guy Fawkes, we need Watt Tyler. A successful one this time though, no stopping at the gates.

Sadly, we're as useful as Dad's Army. Most of us have broom-handles and the fire-power we can get, well, I don't fancy firing a pistol at machine-gun-toting professional teams of paramilitary policeman.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. And me being in Peckham, live next-door to one of the worst, so think I'll be more than fine. Unless those pesky Iranians/Koreans/Chinese (delete as appropriate) fire a nuke, then I'm fucked.

Still, if it gets rid of those Parliamentarians, I wouldn't mind berating them on the way to St Peter.

thelunaticarms said...

'It is' should be 'it isn't just 646' - few beers, blurry eyes, should get to sleep.

Jim Baxter said...

Catflap,

True. What the bastards forget is that the planet always finds its own level. That's not 'Gaia' - it's just what happens.

What the bastards don't forget because they are too thick for this ever to have occurred to them is that humans are natural - everything that they do is natural. An oil refinery, especially at night, is one of the most magnificent sights that nature has to offer, as is a Tornado climbing just about vertically, as is the cloud of a high atmosphere nuclear explosion.

OH in his outfit is not one of nature's magificient sights but that's nature - you take the rough with the smooth. But, I still hope he blazes a trail and believe he will do so.
