Beeb 4 to Challenge Gore

The other side of the global warming story will be told, at least in the UK. BBC Channel 4, long known for tackling controversial issues, will air the documentary, “The Great Global Warming Swindle” on Thursday, March 8. Perhaps some of you can find the live feed, or can record it for re-broadcast on the net.

“I think it will go down in history as the first chapter in a new era of the relationship between scientists and society. Legitimate scientists – people with qualifications – are the bad guys.

“It is a big story that is going to cause controversy.

“It’s very rare that a film changes history, but I think this is a turning point and in five years the idea that the greenhouse effect is the main reason behind global warming will be seen as total bollocks.

“Al Gore might have won an Oscar for ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, but the film is very misleading and he has got the relationship between CO2 and climate change the wrong way round.” …{snip}

“At the moment, there is almost a McCarthyism movement in science where the greenhouse effect is like a puritanical religion and this is dangerous.”

In the programme Nigel Calder says: “The greenhouse effect is seen as a religion and if you don’t agree, you are a heretic.

Children to be Fingerprinted at 11 Years: Totalitarian Britain.

CHILDREN aged 11 to 16 are to have their fingerprints taken and stored on a secret database, internal Whitehall documents reveal.The leaked Home Office plans show that the mass fingerprinting will start in 2010, with a batch of 295,000 youngsters who apply for passports.The Home Office expects 545,000 children aged 11 and over to have their prints taken in 2011, with the figure settling at an annual 495,000 from 2014.Their fingerprints will be held on a database also used by the Immigration and Nationality Directorate to store the fingerprints of hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers.The plans are outlined in a series of “restricted” documents circulating among officials in the Identity and Passport Service. They form part of the programme for the introduction of new biometric passports and ID cards.

American conservatives have a high regard for Tony Blair for his support in the WOT. But the man is a socialist totalitarian at home. His agenda,  even though he is leaving office this summer (watch this space), continues unabated.

Britain has never been less free. Our future does not look good….

Two other articles culled form our Sunday papers of interest in the USA –

Blair admits exit plan created ‘uncertainty.’

No need to read the whole thing. But run it by all the Democrats who want an exit strategy for Iraq to see how foolish the idea is.

Finally – and this is worth a read –

A student at a prominent university was walking home to his digs one night when he was attacked by three teenage thugs for no apparent reason. It was a meaningless and random act of violence. The details of the injuries they caused him are too horrific to go into; needless to say he had to have his face rebuilt through reconstructive surgery.

Meanwhile, the thugs served short borstal sentences and were released before the student had even finished having hospital treatment. Apparently, they were first- time offenders, so their punishment was limited to a few months inside.

I read this in the back pages of a local newspaper a couple of years ago and it formed the starting point for my film Outlaw. The article made me wonder where we’ve got to as a country when the perpetrators of vile crimes are getting off the hook, while their victims are left damaged, both physically and mentally, for life. I wondered: what sort of justice system do we have under Tony Blair’s rule?
Essentially, Outlaw is about people who have been failed by the law and government for one reason or another, and decide to fight back themselves. They decide enough is enough and take the law into their own hands by exacting revenge on the people who have hurt them. Their approach is violent and uncompromising, but then again so are the people who hurt them in the first place.


Is Google having Regulator problems?

Last time the Feds went after the Internet bell cow was March 2000, when Janet Reno went after Microsoft and popped the tech bubble.

It also marked the beginning of the worst bear market of the last 40 years.

Is this deja vu all over again?

from C-net

google.jpgGoogle and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have been in dispute since March 2006 over “various issues,” including the way in which it accounts for income tax, the search giant has revealed.

According to Google’s annual 10-K report for 2006, filed with the SEC on Thursday, the issue remains unresolved. (See paragraph 32, “Unresolved Staff Findings,” in the Google document.)

The SEC has expressed concerns about “various issues with respect to our public filings, including our provision for interim period effective,” Google said in its filing. The dispute has been batted back and forth seven times between Google and the SEC, most recently on January 30.

In this most recent filing, Google admitted that the two sides are at an impasse. “We have not resolved the comment,” Google said in the filing. “We believe that we properly account for our income taxes. We will continue to work to resolve these comments with the SEC.”
