Doom! DOOM!! And Other Stories

Chilled Monkey Brainz from its inception in 1999, then known as “Jaeger’s Rants,” was never meant to be anything more than “Short Stories, Flick Reviews, Rants, and Raves.” It was never meant to be a forum for serious, (or not so serious, as the case may be) discussion. To be honest, I am perfectly happy to have the fan page for that sort of thing. However, today we were supposed to have part two of the Summer Flick Preview, but instead you are getting this because I do believe it is an important issue to discuss.

The biggest fallacy of the Global Warming Doomsayers is the erroneous assertion that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, which it is not. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-toxic gas which is essential to all life on Earth. All green vegetation requires carbon dioxide as plant food, and the process of photosynthesis, in which plants take in carbon dioxide, absorb solar radiation, store the carbon and emit oxygen. As concentrations of carbon dioxide increase, the rates of growth of plants also increase. Flowers and vegetables grown in hothouses are frequently fed with extra carbon dioxide for faster growth and higher yields. This is science fact, not fiction.

Every time a story on global warming is featured on TV, either a background image of a cooling tower from a power station, with its plume of minute water droplets above, or a smoke stack belching forth dark plumes of soot, ash, and other particulates, is shown. In this mendacious way, carbon dioxide is identified as a serious pollutant, and the USA and Canada are always labeled as the world’s greatest polluters. Mark Steyn said “In the past third of a century, the American economy has swollen by 150 per cent, automobile traffic has increased by 143 per cent, and energy consumption has grown 45 per cent. During this same period, air pollutants have declined by 29 per cent, toxic emissions by 48.5 per cent, sulphur dioxide levels by 65.3 per cent, and airborne lead by 97.3 per cent.”(1)

One of the other things that bugs me is when people like Al Gore say that ”Unless anthropogenic (that means HUMAN for you that don't know - Jaeger) emissions of carbon dioxide are reduced by 50–60 per cent of current levels by the year 2050, by 2100 our descendants will have to endure global temperatures of between 1.4 to 5.8°C warmer than the present.”

This claim is at the heart of the global warming scam. It is based on projections
coming out of models run on the most powerful computers which purport to simulate the behaviour of the atmosphere as it responds to changes in carbon dioxide concentrations. The claim that computer models can do this and produce meaningful results is regarded as nonsense by leading scientists in the fields of fluid mechanics, numerical modeling of complex systems, and climate science.

For example, Hendrik Tennekes, wrote recently, “the task of finding all nonlinear feedback mechanisms in the microstructure of the radiation balance probably is at least as daunting as the task of finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. The blind adherence to the harebrained idea that climate models can generate ‘realistic’ simulations of climate is the principal reason why I remain a climate skeptic. From my background in turbulence I look forward with grim anticipation to the day that climate models will run with a horizontal resolution of less than a
kilometer. The horrible predictability problems of turbulent flows then will
descend on climate science with a vengeance.”

Reid Bryson, Emeritus Professor at the University of Wisconsin, and regarded by
many climatologists as the ‘father of climatology’ has written, “A model is nothing more than a formal statement about how the modeler believes the part of the world of his concern actually works … it may be years before computer capacity and human knowledge are adequate for reasonable simulation … the main models in use all have similar errors, but it is hardly surprising, for they are all essentially clones of each other.”

Australia’s Bill Kininmonth, director of the National Climate Centre from 1986 to
1998, writes, “The apparent ability of the computer models to simulate the global surface
temperatures of the 20th century comes with too many assumptions and
shortcomings. Despite the IPCC advocacy, it is not possible to isolate
anthropogenic greenhouse gases as the cause (or even a major cause) for
the observed warming of the last two and a half decades of the 20th century.
The world-wide advance of mountain glaciers until the mid-19th century,
and their steady retreat since, point toward large-scale natural processes
systematically affecting the climate system over prolonged intervals.
Whether the systematic processes are internal to the climate system, an
outcome of external forcing, or a combination of these, cannot be
determined with any confidence from existing data and analysis tools. As a
corollary, the sensitivity of the earth’s temperature response to greenhouse
gas forcing cannot be scaled by reference to the magnitude of recent global
temperature increase and the forcing by anthropogenic greenhouse gases
as represented in computer model simulations of the 20th century.”(2)

Now don’t get me wrong, I believe that the Earth goes through periods of climate change, just look at the history of the planet as proof of that. One hundred million years ago the Earth was a much warmer place than it is now, and there were no people, or SUVs. Ten thousand years ago there was a great Ice Age, and a smaller one just over five thousand years ago, and in the seventies David Suzuki was saying we were defiantly heading into another, but these days the money is in “warming” and the so-called threat that it represents and that is why the media is all over the Global Warming scam these days.

Repair To Be Previewed

Well, the Flames season is over, albeit too soon for me, but in the immortal words of Brody Bruce: “You face forward, or risk shock and damage!” So here is the second annual Chilled Monkey Brainz


MAY 2, 2K8

Directed by Jon Favreau

Based on the Marvel Comic, Inventor and overall rich prick, Tony Stark played by Robert Downey Jr. (isn’t it nice to see he’s finally got his shit together?) dons his most powerful creation, a high-tech suit of armor, to fight Mandarin, an evil scientific genius bent on (what else?) taking over the world. Who isn’t excited about this one? I am, and I never even read the comics! I know, I know, I can already hear the cries of “blasphemy” coming from my comic geek buddies, but what the hell, I’m going to see the flick, that should be enough for you! Throw in Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and this one should be a no brainer.

Son of Rambow
Directed by Garth Jennings

A shy kid growing up in a sheltered British community makes teams up with a schoolmate and attempts to film his own shot-by-shot version of First Blood.
This flick was pretty well received at Sundance and is getting a limited North American release, so if it plays in your town you should check it out, it looks like a lot of fun.

MAY 9, 2K8

Speed Racer
Directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski

Based on the Japanese Anime of the same name, the story follows an uber-skilled young race car driver who belongs to a family of gear-heads, is blackmailed by the head of the nefarious corporation Royalton Industries to participate in The Crucible – a nasty cross-country rally that claimed his brother's life years before. Behind the wheel of the Mach 5, his father's greatest invention, “Speed” goes head-to-head with his chief rival, the mysterious, yet strangely familiar Racer X. Gotta admit, even though I am a HUGE Anime and Manga Otaku, I had very little interest in this flick, until about three weeks ago when I saw the trailer on
HDNet, now I am all over it. And even though the marginally talented brothers behind the Matrix Trilogy are directing it, I still want to see it. Go Speed Racer Go!

MAY 16, 2K8

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Directed by Andrew Adamson

With an evil king ruling over Narnia, the Pevensie children are summoned to help restore the throne to its rightful heir, Prince Caspian. Not interested at all in this flick but I do know some folk who are so here it is. I never read these books as a child, and didn’t much enjoy the first flick.

MAY 23, 2K8

The one we’ve all been waiting for…

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Chrystal Skull
Directed by Steven Spielberg

Man that title is a freaking mouthful isn’t it? The studio is keeping a pretty tight lid on the plot for this one, which I predict will have a Kingdom, a Chrystal Skull and Indy’s son played by Shia LeBeouf somewhere in it, but alas no Nazis this time. You may quote me on this one. The closer this one comes to release, the more excited I seem to be getting, who would’ve thought!

That’s it for May 2K8 releases, check in again next week for June, and possibly July!



Happy Earth Day to all you grubby, lazy, socialist, hippy, sandal-wearing whiners and global warming, fear-mongering liars!

It's FREEZING here in Calgary and since Friday we've had about a foot of snow! Huzzah!

For everyone else out there not caught up in the lie of global warming, Happy Earth Day! Well all know that Mankind's influence on the climate is insignificant at best, and it is BEYOND ARROGANCE to believe that humans could destroy anything as gigantic, complex, and powerful as the Planet Earth.

Remember when a well-paid, mouth-piece like David Suzuki spouts off about how "doomed" we are he is no different than some nutcase fundementalist preacher screaming "Repent sinners! The End is Near!" And the preacher probably has more evidence to prove his point!

But what the hell!

Make up your own mind, don't just take Al Gore's word for it! He's a millionare who made heaps off this global warming scam!
