Looks like another myth has been busted.

Much like other claims made by opponents of oil sands development, shocking stories about higher cancer rates among aboriginals living near such projects are falling apart with close scrutiny.

After reviewing the incidence of cancer in the Fort Chipewyan, Alta., aboriginal community between 1992 and 2011, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. James Talbot, said Monday the overall cancer rate in the community is not significantly higher than elsewhere — 81 cases, compared with 79 that would be expected in the rest of Alberta.

While three types of cancer — cervical cancer (four cases), lung cancer (eight cases) and bile duct cancer (three cases) — are slightly more prevalent, the first two are preventable through vaccination and less smoking, he said. The third is more complicated and has been linked to such risk factors as obesity, diabetes, alcohol, viral hepatitis and family history.

“There isn’t strong evidence for an association between any of these cancers and environmental exposure,” Dr. Talbot told reporters after releasing the report in Edmonton.

The doctor responsible for spreading the notion that the oil sands were causing cancer among aboriginals was a Greenpeace campaigner. He has been rebuked by both Health Canada and the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons.

It’s because of global warming.

Last week, former United States Vice President Al Gore again blamed overpopulation for what he says are destructive results of climate change. The environmental activist, whose work has been severely criticized in many quarters, was speaking at the 44th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. (Source)

Don’t kid yourself, Buckwheat.  In the end, women (or men) don’t control births.  That’s just a temporary scam to get to the goal line.  In the end, control of births resides in one of two places…with God (and nature) or with the State (and the pharmaceutical companies).

And when you tie it to the fraud of Global Warming you have a very deadly mixture.   Just like you now have a “duty to die” with Euthanasia,  you will have a “duty to be sterilized”.  Believe me, the show of abortion is really not over and there is the last frontier yet to cover here in the West of coerced abortion “for the sake of Mother Earth” and the new Eco-religion.   And don’t think the government won’t try and enforce it either.

He called it, back in ’68 (funny, for an old celibate man, he certainly did know a lot about sex and politics, huh?) :

Finally, careful consideration should be given to the danger of this power passing into the hands of those public authorities who care little for the precepts of the moral law. Who will blame a government which in its attempt to resolve the problems affecting an entire country resorts to the same measures as are regarded as lawful by married people in the solution of a particular family difficulty? Who will prevent public authorities from favoring those contraceptive methods which they consider more effective? Should they regard this as necessary, they may even impose their use on everyone. It could well happen, therefore, that when people, either individually or in family or social life, experience the inherent difficulties of the divine law and are determined to avoid them, they may give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife. (HV, 17)

…confirm what we’ve known all along.  It’s all about population control.

The publisher appears to be shocked that in a recent special issue the scientists expressed doubt about the accelerated warming predicted by the IPCC. For the crime of not bowing before the sacred tabernacle, apparently the publishers suddenly felt the need to distance themselves, and in the most over-the-top way. The reasons they gave had nothing to do with the data, the logic, and they cite no errors. There can be no mistake, this is about enforcing a permitted line of thought….(Source)

Hahahaha.  Progressives are so intulectial, aren’t they? — until, of course, it challenges their religion.

What a joke the industry of science has become.  Just another political power play, serving their liberal masters.  Bah.

Christopher Monckton of Brenchley is a world-renowned speaker on the weakness of the scientific claims for man-made global warming. He knows the science very well. He’s also a Catholic.

He recently wrote a lengthy article on Watts Up With That, the world’s foremost website for scientists that question the science of climate change. Scientists on that site have been fuming over the past few years in the wake of numerous scandals whereby scientists pushing global warming have been caught fudging their data to produce alarmist results. That site, like many scientific circles, is also hostile towards religion. Nevertheless, Monckton brilliantly challenged his colleagues on two key issues related to morality.

We’re all dead, didn’t you know? We just haven’t realized it yet, like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense.

Back in 2007, some climate “scientists” were predicting that global warming was going to cause so much damage, that by 2012 about 4.5 billion people would have died from it.

By squeaker

As we enjoy a period of delightful weather in Ottawa, I thought I’d share a chart showing how mistaken the climate “experts” are about global warming. The chart is courtesy of climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer.

This chart (shown below, click to enlarge) compares the evolution of actual temperatures vs. the predictions of 44 different climate models. The actual temperatures are shown by the solid red and blue lines at the bottom labelled UAH and RSS. These are satellite measurements since 1979 and are considered to be very accurate. All the other squiggly lines are the predictions of the 44 climate models. The dark black line is the average of the 44 squiggly predictions and is approximately representative of the view of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is like the Magisterium for the global warming crowd. Their pronouncements drive government policies.

Four key observations jump out of this chart:

  1. The actual temperatures in both 2011 and 2012 were lower than even the lowest forecast among the 44 models. Not a single model had expected temperatures to be this low.
  2. Even over the prior period of history since 1979, the models typically overestimate global temperatures. I’ve built a lot of forecasting models in my life, in the field of economics. Forecasting 101 says that if your model can’t even forecast the past, then don’t pretend it can forecast the future. Unfortunately, although many climatologists are brilliant in their own field, they have been found to not understand statistical modelling very well.
  3. The dark black line, which forms the basis for IPCC policy recommendations, is increasingly out of touch with reality, being about half of degree from actual temperatures in 2012. Even if the IPCC’s forecast has the right slope for the 2012-2025 period, it’s starting point in 2012 should be down at where actual temperatures are, not way up at some theoretical level disconnected from the real world. In forecasting jargon, we’d say that the “hand off” is erroneous.
  4. Ignore all the lines and focus on just the blue and red lines measuring actual temperatures. If you put your hand on the screen to hide all the years prior to 1998, you’ll see that temperatures since then have no upward trend. There are some ups and downs, but on average they’re stable. Scientists are dumbfounded by this. They don’ know how this can be possible and are scrambling for explanations. CO2 emissions have risen steadily since 1998 but temperatures have not.

The bottom line is that scientists don’t know as much about climate as they think. There are many forces at play that they don’t understand and can’t predict. Their models are an epic FAIL. The gap between their predictions and reality keeps growing each year. Any predictions based on these models are speculation at best. Policies based on speculation are a train wreck in the making.

I don’t fault these scientists for trying to project temperatures, nor do I fault them for failing. Predicting the future is no easy task. But I do fault them for failing to admit that their models are faulty and instead issuing very definitive policy recommendations enrobed in fear mongering.

It’s actually laughable that the whole world is implementing policies based on models that are so visibly bunk. How can this be possible, if not because ideology is driving the movement?

The Economist magazine is starting to raise questions about the climate change hysteria in light of the absence of warming for more than a decade. The evidence no longer computes with the doomsday predictions. The consensus is starting to unravel.

I suppose this “solution” makes everyone happy.

I really don’t see why Jesus should be expelled and why the House of the Lord should be used for paganized, New Age purposes.

But not a word was spoken; the Church bells all were broken. And the three men, I admire most: Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, they caught the last train for the coast…

Nothing says the “New Evangelization” in the Archdiocese of Toronto like:  Get out Jesus and make room for Gaia and a pseudo liturgy.

Sorry, folks, the next Springtime in the Church looks like it’s gonna be Springtime, 2053.

Science, as they say, advances funeral by funeral.

There’ll be another alarmist coming through the ranks, waiting to make a sucker out of liberals and governments.

From a reader…

This interview, with Author Elizabeth Nickson, is very important. Please watch this video and share with others.

The UN with Agenda 21 is also trying to do an end-run around national governments and go straight to local governments and school systems. I bet more Catholic students look to UN Sec-Gen Ban Ki-moon for moral wisdom than they do to the Pope!!

Until now, I thought the UN was too busy with gender twisting stuff like the Yogyakarta Principles, but they have time for EVERYTHING! 
This is another podcast interview with Dickson. Ricochet has some great podcasts and Radio Free Delingpole from the UK is my favourite!

Remember, Socon or Bust alerted readers to Agenda 21 and Development and Peace’s involvement.

A new study was released last month by researchers from Stony Brook University. Maybe you should start wearing a hat and occlusive clothing inside your home:

“Our study revealed that the response of healthy skin cells to UV [ultraviolet rays] emitted from CFL bulbs is consistent with damage from ultraviolet radiation,” said Professor Rafailovich. “Skin cell damage was further enhanced when low dosages of TiO2 nanoparticles were introduced to the skin cells prior to exposure.” Rafailovich added that incandescent light of the same intensity had no effect on healthy skin cells, with or without the presence of TiO2. (Source)

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), by the way, is a chemical used in personal care products such as makeup and sunscreen. That’s right, folks, the TiO2 in sunscreen leads to more damage to skin cells from CFL bulbs even though it apparently helps against UV rays from the sun.

Considering earlier research on the dangers of mercury in CFL bulbs, you should banish those bulbs from your home. It’s a shame, because they use a lot less electricity. But the dangers far out-weigh the benefits.

All of the eco justice warriors out there need to cool off:

German researchers used data from tree rings – a key indicator of past climate – to claim the world has been on a ‘long-term cooling trend’ for two millennia until the global warming of the twentieth century. This cooling was punctuated by a couple of warm spells. These are the Medieval Warm Period, which is well known, but also a period during the toga-wearing Roman times when temperatures were apparently 1 deg C warmer than now.

A Catholic Reflection on the Earth Charter

What is the most serious threat facing mankind?”

The conversation started with Sussman’s question, and Kalie responded the most serious threat facing humanity today is simply “human existence.”

“I guess you mean there are too many humans on the planet,” he said.


“What are they doing to harm this Earth?” he asked.

“They’re polluting all kinds of stuff. And the birds and animals are eating it and they die,” she said.

“How does that make you feel?”

“Kind of like I wish that they didn’t pollute, and that it never happened, and sometimes I wish we didn’t exist,” she said. (Source)

This is the kind of Green crap that we need to look out for.  Last week the Archdiocese of Montreal folded to pressure to ring Church bells for the latest eco-avante guard cause.

The Catholic Church needs to be very careful in not being co-opted into being just another useful idiot (and an important one at that) for the population controllers who have taken over the Environmental bus.

There should be absolutely NO cooperation with any group which does not have a Christian world view on the environment…which means that 99% of them are disqualified.

Last week, David Suzuki had to resign from the Board of the foundation that bears his name.

This week, a complaint has been lodged with the Canada Revenue Agency for his foundation to be investigated for violating rules about political involvement by charities:

“With 12 registered lobbyists, the David Suzuki Foundation has more lobbyists on staff than most government relations firms,” the release from said.

No kidding. It’s the beginning of the end for their charitable status. But give him credit for sticking to his guns, despite the threats:

“I am not going to shut up just because of the rules about charities.”

I wish our bishops would do the same.
