Two BBCs in One!

Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

“The other big story today: BBC forced to admit global warming ‘static.’”

— Headline, the Watts Up With That? science blog, January 8th, 2013.

“Rise in violence ‘linked to climate change.'”

— Headline, the BBC today.

(But then, what isn’t “linked to ‘climate change’?”)

Oh, and speaking of violence and climate change, since I meant to link to his earlier this week, here’s two John Kerrys in one:

● “Kerry on Global Warming: ‘The Science Is Screaming at All of Us and Demands Action.'”

— The Weekly Standard, April 22nd, 2013.

Ahh, but what sort of action? This sort of action!

Secretary of State John Kerry and his advisers have emitted more than 35.4 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the environment during their ill-fated attempts to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, according to a Washington Free Beacon environmental impact study.

After taking six trips to the region since February, Kerry and his crew have expended almost twice the amount of carbon that the average American emits yearly, according to an analysis based on statistics from the U.S Energy Information Administration.

Kerry alone has produced 26,037.11 pounds of CO2 as he seeks to bring intransigent Palestinian leaders back to the bargaining table.

Kerry has claimed global warming is one of his chief priorities even as he repeatedly shuttles to the Middle East on a mission experts say is doomed to fail.

— The Washington Free Beacon, July 29th.

And you thought Kerry’s carbon emissions were enormous before he became Secretary of State. Clearly, somebody’s jealous that his boss won the coveted Iowahawk Earth Week Cruise-In Grand Champion Carbonator award this year.
