Rather than hunt for (or recreate) screencaps of Charles v1.0 comments, let’s just pour some straight out of the bucket.

I just realized … that’s it! A new explanation for global warming—it’s the Jews’ fault!

Am I convinced global warming is a hoax? Not 100%. Maybe 95%.
But after reading Crichton’s book, with its voluminous research and documentation, and after speaking at length with a good friend who is a climatologist, I’m almost certain that at the very least, the danger is being greatly exaggerated for political reasons.

re: #183 Tigger2005
In the links above, there’s a story about a society of physicists numbering over 50,000 members that is strongly questioning the IPCC “consensus” on man-made global warming.
I have that study open in a browser window right now. Looks like Greek to me.
But the conclusion is very interesting.

Just for the record, the jury is still out on global warming. I’m reluctant to endorse either side, because the issue has been politicized beyond recognition.

re: #860 roberth
If LGF is starting to point out misrepresentations in the global warming field there won’t be any room left for other topics. Time to drop this one as the misrepresentations are predominantly by the alarmists.
I don’t recall asking you for advice on what I should post at LGF.

re: #172 burntjohn
In yesterdays Jindal thread I said that creationism and global warming shared one distinction. Both are born of junk science and propaganda.BEWARE of a merger of the two.There are those who preach the “Green Gospel”Global warming is a crises created by the sins of man and all Gods children have a moral duty to correct.
Now add the apocalyptic kooks who believe the only way to save the planet is to drastically reduce the human population.
That’s ridiculous. There are reasons to be skeptical about anthropogenic climate change, but comparing it to creationism is beyond absurd.

Some opinion with charts and facts . For the truly open minded.
And for those whose minds aren’t so open their brains have fallen out:
CO2 Fairy Tales in Global Warming, by Gregory Young.
Oh what the hell. Here’s one more for the road.
The following is a repost from 18 September 2016.
There he goes again, fighting a dead man.
Andrew Breitbart enhanced Charles Johnson’s blogging career by introducing him to the players who in turn promoted Little Green Footballs and escorted Johnson into the Big Tent with fanfare. Instead of walking away with dignity, Charles chose the path of the pissant. Not only did he shun his former mentors, he turned on them, created and promoted lies, reposted invented unsubstantiated claims, and astroturfed his benefactors. Then, like a true coward, he still plays the victim when others call him on his own hypocrisy.
On 13 September 2016, Charles tried once again to erase his own history of astroturfing, but let’s roll back the clock to 18 September 2009.
Seven years ago today The Flying Monkeys of Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs began an astroturf campaign against HotAir. With no evidence to back up Johnson’s accusation that HotAir was a racist website, LGF operative Killgore Trout paid them a visit while the moderators were asleep and provided the “evidence” himself by posting offensive racial comments and daring the moderators to delete them… beginning at 12:34AM and running to 2:01AM. You can read the full diatribe here, but here’s a snippet:
Killgore’s Midnight Run set a precedent for Little Green Footballs that was recognized throughout the political blogosphere, and the running joke was that if racist comments showed up on someone’s website it was due to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs.
Charles Johnson continuously accused Breitbart and others of not policing comments on their websites. Little Green Footballs typically garnered a couple of hundred comments, and Charles employed volunteer “Monitor Lizards” to do it for him. Breitbart’s “Big Journalism” had well over ten times the number of comments per post than Little Green Footballs, so it was impractical to expend the effort to review and/or edit all of them.
And Johnson’s astroturfing didn’t stop there.
Johnson holds the 2 of Clubs and four Post-It Notes, then claims he has 5 of a kind. The first liar never has a chance, Charles.
Lotta comments downstairs so here’s a new thread to fill while we wait for new brilliance to emerge from the amazing split-level brain of Charles Foster Johnson.
2002 – Comments hidden.
Charles, you have never been glib.
Inane, hyperbolic, petulant, self-absorbed and flippant? Always.
[Updates: Added 2002 screencap via ISTE; added 2021 comment.]
“Walkin’ it back now, Boss.”
“Shakin’ it off now, Boss.”
Meanwhile back at the mountain…
