Vince Cable needs to be returned to his position in the UK. He is hero. He has got guts that no else has.

...Spotted strap-hanging (click here) in a packed commuter train into Waterloo the other morning was Vince Cable, the Business Secretary. At his feet was a hessian shopping bag stuffed with files which he was reading his way through. There was no sign of any ministeral red box. We learned during the expenses scandal last year that Cable did not claim any second home allowance because he commuted into Westminster each day by train from his Twickenham constituency. But that was when he was an opposition MP, albeit a prominent one....
The articles within this entry comes from "The Telegraph," NOT  the Murdoch rag, "The Daily Telegraph." 

I just love it.  His hatred of those that oppose him is spewed across his own papers to bolster his 'so called' power.

Vince Cable should NEVER be a casuality in trying to maintain INDEPENDENT media from being ruthlessly destroyed by Murdoch. 

I applaud Mr. Cable and hope he continues his opposition, it is vital to 'the truth.'

See, Murdoch's media circus in INCAPABLE of 'the truth.'  A global MONOPOLY on the news media is NOT what makes democracies great.

Vince Cable (click title to entry - thank you) has been stripped of his responsibilities for overseeing media, telecom and broadcasting companies after being secretly recorded by The Daily Telegraph boasting that he had “declared war” on Rupert Murdoch, the media tycoon....

No one will find 'the truth' in any Murdoch rag anywhere.

That snow outside is what global warming looks like  (click here)

Unusually cold winters may make you think scientists have got it all wrong. But the data reveal a chilling truth.

There were two silent calls, followed by a message left on my voicemail. She had a soft, gentle voice and a mid-Wales accent. "You are a liar, Mr Monbiot. You and James Hansen and all your lying colleagues. I'm going to make you pay back the money my son gave to your causes. It's minus 18C and my pipes have frozen. You liar. Is this your global warming?" She's not going to like the answer, and nor are you. It may be yes....

...I can already hear the howls of execration: now you're claiming that this cooling is the result of warming! Well, yes, it could be. A global warming trend doesn't mean that every region becomes warmer every month. That's what averages are for: they put local events in context. The denial of man-made climate change mutated first into a denial of science in general and then into a denial of basic arithmetic. If it's snowing in Britain, a thousand websites and quite a few newspapers tell us, the planet can't be warming.

According to Nasa's datasets, the world has just experienced the warmest January to November period since the global record began, 131 years ago; 2010 looks likely to be either the hottest or the equal hottest year. This November was the warmest on record...

The Climate Crisis is REAL.  Very real.  Get over it !

That is some of the nastiest climate systems I have ever seen.

UNISYS Water Vapor West and North Hemisphere (click title for 12 hour loop)

There are two vortices, one on the east coast and one on the west coast of the USA.

The one on the west coast of the USA is more than interesting.  It has found enough 'heat energy' from the dense carbon dioxide blanket to fuel an entire 'system' in a single location on Earth.

What is truly tragic is the density of the water vapor surrounding Earth.  Since so many of the ice fields and the caps have melted the water vapor is in the troposphere and hence torrential rains and or enormous snow falls.  I find it interesting it is primarily raining over most of the continent on the second day of winter in the northern hemisphere.

What is really unfortunately interesting about this hemispheric system is the fact there are not only two vortices at work, but, an enormous amount of air mass off the equator carrying more and more water vapor to the terrestrial continent.

When observing the movement of the 'high pressure' (dark area across the Caribbean and Gulf) in relation to the vortex, it is becoming smaller in a short period of time.  Why would that be?  Why would this huge high pressure system simply disappear? 


The high pressure is being INCORPORATED into the massive, ionic, low pressure vortex.  Amazing, isn't it?  The vortex is so hot, resulting in a velocity capable of pulling that 'high pressure' mass directly into the circulation system.

Now.  Anyone.  That doesn't have respect for the power and dynamics of that monster.  That Earth System.  Then that 'anyone' is nothing more than a fool. 

P.E.I. storm closes roads, bridges

Tuesday December 21, 2010 North Rustico,Prince Edward Island , Canada

...Prince Edward Island (click title to entry - thank you) was under storm surge, wind, and rainfall warnings throughout Tuesday, as several roads and smaller bridges closed across the province.
There were multiple reports of flooding across the province, restrictions were in place on the Confederation Bridge, and a wind turbine in the Hunter River area was bent in half.
High winds caused trees to topple into the middle of roads and on top of parked cars and power lines.
Maritime Electric was dealing with 5,800 customers without power at the peak of the outages. That number has fluctuated throughout the day, but mostly hovered at around 500 to 600....

Cuccinelli is all about ego without the benefit of a legitimate brain.

The Virginia AG is making a fool out of himself so he can be the next Tea Bagger Darling.

Michael Mann is his TARGET now.

What the wayward AG is stating, is that the scientific brain trust of the USA is a fraud.

When is Virginia going to impeach this dolt?

This is a peak at a few of Professor Mann's credentials:

Professor Michael Mann is PUBLISHED is some of the leading peer reviewed scientific journals.  You mean to tell me Cuccinelli can't FIND the published material?

...Cuccinelli (click here) had earlier indicated his intention to ask the Virginia Supreme Court to review a decision by Albemarle Court Judge Paul M. Peatross Jr. quashing his civil investigative demands to the university, on the grounds that he (Cuccinnelli) had failed to state an objective reason why he needed the records. On Wednesday, he formally filed a brief arguing his appeal with the supreme court....

He spent taxpayers money on a witch hunt?  When is he going to be impeached !  This is just the beginning of the incompetency of this jerk.  He didn't state the objective for the need?  Really?  AND, what EVIDENCE is there that a NEED exists before he starts his political witch hunt with taxpayers money?
