Monckton: Obama is Like Nazi Doctors

“Lord” Christopher Monckton, one of the most ridiculous buffoons on the right wing, has a column at — where else? — the Worldnetdaily comparing President Obama to Nazi doctors and Soviet scientists. The basis? The long-debunked nonsense about how temperatures haven’t gone up in the last 17 years.

Where is the missing heat coming from? Has the Obama administration inadvertently repealed the laws of thermodynamics?

There is nothing inadvertent about it. It is absolutely essential to the party line, leading up to the Paris pifflefest, to conceal the fact that there has been no global warming statistically distinguishable from zero since the U.N.’s disastrous climate panel first reported a quarter of a century ago.

Yet Mr. Obama, instead of rejoicing that there is no global warming, sullenly presides over an administration that cynically and conveniently rewrites all data that do not fit the party line.

Mr. Obama now stands in the dismal tradition of the Nazi eugenicists, who tried to tamper with science by declaring the Aryans and the Jews were a superior and an inferior race respectively, and of the Communist Lysenkoists, who killed 20 million Soviet citizens by starvation because instead of planting seed-corn in the autumn they tried to tamper with science by soaking the seeds in water and planting them out in the spring. Result: decades of failed harvests.

All of this is based on the claim that global temperatures have not risen since 1998, but that claim is based on cherry-picked data. 1998 was an unusually warm year because of El Nino, so that isn’t a valid starting point. This is just plain dishonest. The 14 hottest years on record have all occurred since 1998, which is something that cannot be explained away, especially with idiotic Nazi analogies.

    NOAA has just come out with a new study:

    A new study published online today in the journal Science finds that the rate of global warming during the last 15 years has been as fast as or faster than that seen during the latter half of the 20th Century. The study refutes the notion that there has been a slowdown or “hiatus” in the rate of global warming in recent years.

    Lack of warming is lack of warming. One may pick any interval–climate models have to explain the temperature trend during that interval, or the model is not valid. During the past 18 years CO2 has risen considerably, without corresponding warming. That invalidates the models that failed to predict it. That’s how science works.

    But climate science isn’t science–it’s ideology masquerading as science, just like eugenics, Malthusianism, pesticide hysteria, global cooling, heterosexual aids–all hoaxes and junk science. AGW is junk science too. It will be discarded in the next decade or two, when the earth refuses to go along with the fib, and it will be replaced with another science apocalypse. I predict the Ocean Acidification Apocalypse. THe OAA is easier because the public doesn’t know the pH of the oceans, so unlike temperatures it will be harder for the average person to know it is a hoax.

    The hoaxes will never stop.

    That could, in fact, be the plan: ignore the problem, resist all attempts to mitigate the problem, and hope the problem kills off mostly NONWHITE people, while the rich white denialists simply hide behind their wealth and power and wait it out. Notice how most AGW denialists are rich white asshats who don’t give a damn about anyone outside their comfort-zone? Notice how most of the people most affected by the actual consequences of AGW are people the rich white asshats never cared about (or even knew about) in the first place?

    And as far as junk science goes, DDT is in fact harmful, but there are alternatives available. More importantly, the treaties outlawing DDT contain exemptions for vector control. Funny you didn’t mention that. Funny you consider birth control “human insecticide” but are fine with an actual insecticide that can harm human beings as well as help them.

  • llewelly

    The DDT ban is a myth. The laws all contain exceptions for disease vector control, and those have been sufficient for decades to enable DDT to be used, where it is useful.

    The real problem is evolution. Thanks to the evolution of resistance, all disease vector populations contain high portions of genes that confer strong resistance to extremely high concentrations of DDT, so it only takes about 90 days for the population of to bounce back in a form that is nearly immune to any available concentration of DDT. Then, it’s necessary to wait many years for resistance to recede. So in tropical regions, DDT is mostly useless, most of the time, thanks not to environmentalists, but to evolution.

    That is the main reason why other insecticides, mostly pyretheums, are preferred today. And the alternatives are not much more expensive than DDT was in its prime. The main reason those diseases persist, is that the Europeans and Americans that could afford to eradicate those diseases by reallocating a tiny fraction of their military budgets, are not interested in helping. Much the contrary, they mostly keep robbing and looting African nations, making it very difficult for them to develop the resources necessary to address the problems themselves.

    By the way. For about 20 years, Rachael Carson and many others, repeatedly pointed out, if you want DDT to remain useful for disease vector control, it must be used very carefully, or resistance will evolve, and it will become useless. They were right, even if they were wrong about cancer. They got the big picture right, but the evolution deniers loooove to focus on the small irrelevant mistakes.

    Has Dr. Egnor looked at AIDS morbidity in sub-Saharan Africa? South Africa thinks they have a serious HIV/AIDS problem. In 2008 the Ministry of Health estimated that 25.8% of males and 29.1% of females ages 30 to 34 were HIV positive.

And for as long as they continued to use DDT, they remained malaria-free. Eventually, however, a number of these nations bowed to pressures from the environmental lobby and abided by the DDT ban. When they did so, malaria rates quickly soared.’

  • Nick Gotts

    Michael Egnor, slanderous liar and egregious hypocrite, has really surpassed himself in this thread, with brazen, bare-faced lies about climate change, DDT and AIDS. Even when the denialist liars were peddling the cherry-picked claim of “no global warming for 14 years”, it was a lie: at that point, some calculations indicated only that it could not be proved to the 95% confidence level that the rise in temperature from 1998 to 2012 was not due to internal variability in the climate system. Calculations did not show, then or later, that there had been no warming: trend lines still sloped upwards, just not enough for it to be asserted – climate scientists being cautious people – that it was due to an increase in forcing. Even this, however, is no longer the case. But of course denialist liars such as Monckton and Egnor will continue to lie, because their case depends on lying: lies are all they have.

    With regard to DDT, Oreskes and Conway, in Merchants of Doubt, bust the lies of lying liars such as Egnor and his lying “sources” at some length, but for those who don’t have access to that, take a look here, as well as llewelly’s link@26.

    As for AIDS, the lack of rapid spread in the general population in the USA could have something to do with extensive information campaigns to precvent such spread. Where such campaigns are inhibited by religious opposition – as in Russia – HIV is indeed spreading rapidly.

    Leftie apocalyptics whose junk science has actually killed tens of millions of people (hundreds if you count Malthusianism) point to welfare reform as lethal to the poor. – Michael Egnor, slanderous liar and egregious hypocrite

    Oddly enough, Malthus was a convinced proponent of “welfare reform” – i.e., cutting state support for people without work. He was also, of course, a devout Christian, opposed to abortion (and, as I already mentioned, artificial contraception) as immoral in all circumstances. So Michael Egnor the slanderous liar and egregious hypocrite is, in fact, far more of a “Malthusian” than the people he likes to tar with that brush.

    Actually a cogent critique of environmentalists, who are invariably rich white asshats… – Michael Egnor, slanderous liar and egregious hypocrite

    Anothe bare-faced lie. You just have to google “black environmentalists”, “environmentalists Africa” or “environmentalists Latin America” to find abundant evidence of the lie. To cite just one category of non-rich, non-white, non-asshats, local people, often poor and belonging to indigenous minorities, have been at the forefront of struggles to protect tropical forests from loggers, ranchers, oil prospectors and others across South America and tropical Asia. Many have been murdered for their pains. But Michael Egnor, slanderous liar and egregious hypocrite, denies their existence. What utter, contemptible, lying scum he is.

    @Colnago80 (#24):

    I found two articles on that. First is the Sun-Sentinel, 31 July 1985 in which he fears he may have AIDS:

    ATLANTA — Lester Maddox, the former segregationist governor of Georgia, fears he might have contracted AIDS from drugs he used to battle prostate cancer.

    The 69-year-old real estate agent had injected himself with the blood-derived drugs up to 60 times a week for more than two years until recently when he learned they may contain antibodies associated with AIDS and hepatitis.

    He bought the drugs from a Bahamian cancer clinic that was shut down two weeks ago after investigations showed the drugs were contaminated.

    Next is the Los Angeles Times for 27 August 1985:

    MARIETTA, Ga. — Former Georgia Gov. Lester Maddox jubilantly declared today that he does not have AIDS, the deadly disease he was exposed to through treatments at a cancer clinic in the Bahamas.

    It’s good to know Wikipedia is reliable on this point — although they could mention that Maddox was at risk.

    Hey, DDawg, I’m sorry to see that you are still ineducable.

    .

    14 of the 15 hottest years have been in the 21st century. 2005 was hotter than 1998. 2010 was even hotter. 2014 set another global heat record, and this year has so far been hotter still. Why did you pick 1998 and not 1997 or 1999? Surely an upstanding neoconservative would never stoop to dishonesty!

    .

    In any event, anyone who is scientifically literate knows that most of the heat has been going into the ocean and also melting the ice. El Niño is an upswelling of heat from the ocean depths, cooling the ocean slightly by warming the air very much and very quickly. Over the next few years, the air subsequently warms more slowly (it used to cool off) while the ocean warms more quickly. Then the ocean gives off a bunch of heat in another El Niño 10 or 15 years later, and the cycle continues.
