US Government Keeps Cats In Many Bags

The federal government suppresses or manipulates information about the environment, prescription drugs and public safety, making it increasingly hard for members of the public to learn about matters that could affect their lives.

DSBlog game: what's wrong with this picture?

What's wrong with this picture

Here's a fun, albeit easy, game of “tell me what's wrong with this picture” for you regular DSB'ers out there.

As many of you know this is Tim Ball , star of the recent “Great Global Warming Swindle” that is receiiving a regular thrashing right now, even by one of the scientists that appeared in the film. I blurred it a little to make at least somewhat of a challenge.

A Global Warming Swindle play-by-play

The UK Channel 4 documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle ” has been touted by deniers and slammed by a lot of others, including one scientist who appeared in the film. Having taken a quick glance over the movie, the first thing that jumps out is that it's the same guys we write about on DSBlog all the time. There's nothing new here that we have not heard ad naseum from the same handful of global warming deniers.

Here's a few obvious points:

Putting lipstick on a Llama: Tim Ball, retired professor at the University of Winnipeg's department of geography, has magically turned into “Professor Tim Ball, University of Winnipeg, Department of Climatology.” Here's some more on Tim Ball.

$100 in iTunes to the first person to find the elusive department of climatology at the University of Winnipeg. I'll even give you the list of departments at U of W to make it easier.

Aussie imam says global warming is Allah's revenge

Just when we thought greenhouse gas was the culprit, along comes this pearl from a Muslim cleric in Australia who lays the blame for climate change, drought and pollution on lack of faith in Allah.

Tim Ball Death Threats

In another piece of history for which the prevaricating professor offers no documentation, the Telegraph reports that Tim Ball says he has received five death threats “since raising concerns about the degree to which man was affecting climate change.”

For the record, The DeSmogBlog hopes that no harm comes to Tim Ball, now or in the warm future. The longer he lives, the more evidence of anthropogenic climate change he is forced to witness, the more complete will be his humiliation.
