Calling on Canada's Cagey Climatologist to reveal proof of man-made climate change


Looks as if Ray Spiteri (in the Dec.22, 2011 St.Catharines Standard story "White Christmas? Dream on") engaged Environment Canada's senior climatologist David Phillips to determine whether a not-yet-snowy December in Niagara is proof of "climate change".

Spiteri reported Phillips' reply: ""Climate Change? Could be" said Phillips "We don't know what it is.""

Pardon?! "Could beclimate change???
"We don't know" ???
Yikes... that's probably not the answer which the GreenFear-mongering St.Catharines Standard was really hoping for!!  Hahaha: it's supposed to be "all settled"!!
[...see some of my favourite Cagey Climatologist David Phillips stories  here;  here;  here;  here !]

Spiteri didn't bother to ask Phillips about the 'toxicity to The Planet' of the heat-trapping water-vapour cloud which Niagara Falls has been constantly releasing for some 12,000 years! [Whaaaaat? Whazzzat 'bout? Whaddaya mean..?]

Why didn't Spiteri or his Standard editors also provide readers with Liberal MPP Jim Bradley's response to Phillips' "we don't know" answer, about climate change??

Did Spiteri even bother to ask Niagara's Greatest GreenFear-monger, Jim 'Kyodiot' Bradley, (who, by the way, is Ontario's Environment Minister?!) You'd think that Bradley would have  a completely opposite point of view than Phillips on the matter!

Jim Bradley and his entire Liberal party believe that the causes of, the existence of, and the political solutions to, the issue of  "climate change" HAVE ALL BEEN SETTLED!!! Spiteri surely knows about the Liberals' GreenFear peddling, doesn't he?!

Bradley personally claims that man made climate change/global warming is real, and, obviously, Bradley's been blabbing that way for at least twenty years. Of course, Bradley has never provided any specific scientific basis for his claims, going back to at least 1991. The St.Catharines Standard, meanwhile, has gladly never asked. [see: Liberal MPP Jim Bradley shoots crap]

Bradley most certainly claims to believe that he knows what climate change is - though strangely, a secretive Jim Bradley has never publicly revealed his supporting 'scientific basis' for his climate change beliefs - which he clearly must have already had twenty years ago!

Reporter Ray Spiteri had the opportune time to ask Liberal hack MPP Jim Bradley all about his Liberal global warming AGW "evidence";
to ask all about ClimateGate (# one and two);
to ask all about the Mann-made hockey stick climate hoax;
to ask all about the dismantling in Durban of Bradley's GreenFear weapon Kyoto, and why Bradley (McGuinty's supposed environment minister) did nothing about it; and... oh, yeah...
to ask all about Phillips' 'we don't know' answer about climate change!!

Conveniently, the biased wrong-righters at the St.Catharines Standard only brought us half the story, if that. (...an example of what would become more clearly known and revealed as"FAKE NEWS" after Trump was elected in 2016)

There are a lot of other GreenFear-mongers in Niagara - why didn't Spiteri talk to any of them, either, so they could, once and for all, prove that Phillips is just 'full of steamy Justin Trudeau sh!t'?


In the Feb. 22, 2017 Niagara Falls Review and the St.Catharines Standard, Ray Spiteri again 'interviewed' Cagey, and again, Spiteri did not bother to ask David Phillips if what Phillips was saying was the direct result of man-made (AGW) climate-change. 

The GreenFear-mongering insinuation that this was all due to 'climate change', was palpably present in Spiteri's piece, as Cagey Dave told Spiteri how: 
“These records go back to 1901. It’s hard to break a record when you’ve got over 100 years of records. I think (Thursday) could very well be (a record), especially if we get a little bit more sun than the fog that we’ve seen in some parts of southern Ontario.”

Phillips said he doesn’t recall such a sustained stretch of warm weather in February such as this year.

“I don’t think there’s been a warmer week in February. 
What’s so interesting about this heat wave in February is that it is so persistent. You often will get one or two days where spring has arrived, and then you’re back into the cold winter weather. This has gone on. It went from (last) Saturday to this coming) Saturday"

Spiteri just obediently stenographed whatever Cagey said, without question. Spiteri could have asked: 
'David, regarding this '100-yr-old record breaking February temperature' which you just mentioned, is this definitive evidence of man made climate change, the kind that Liberals such as Justin Trudeau and Jim Bradley say it is? 
David, you make all this innuendo about hundred year records being broken, but as Canada's Senior Climatologist, what do these records have to do with AGW climate change?
David, when you say to me “I don’t think there’s been a warmer week in February",are you specifically referring to the period from 1901 to Feb. 2017? Could there have been a warmer February week anytime earlier, say, oh... in the last 10,000 years? And, why is it that you "don't think there's been a warmer week in February" - don't you know these things for sure, before you say them?
Either it has been 'the warmest February week since 1901', or it hasn't - why allude to this, if you don't know? Do you want me to sensationalize the story, and spike it with GreenFear?' 

Sadly, Spiteri sold himself out as a journalist and simply danced the tired old Cagey Two Step Tango with David Phillips. Spiteri did NOT ask any questions, just lapped up David Phillips' sputum and regurgitated it in the St. Catharines Standard and in the Review.

This was again re-confirmed in a Dec. 30, 2017 Niagara Falls Review story, where Sellout Spiteri was writing about the COLD weather (-14C  -  -18C) being predicted for the New Year's Eve concert in Niagara Falls, Canada; and AGAIN, Spiteri, for some reason, trotted out Cagey David Phillips to provide some fearmongering - yet Spiteri DID NOT bother to ask Canada's Cagiest Climatologist, whether the weather which Spiteri and Phillips were reporting on, was CAUSED BY MAN!!

Spiteri quoted Phillips saying that the weather in Niagara Falls was "almost inhospitable" and the cold temperatures were "near record levels" - - - YET - even after all this - Sellout Spiteri COMPLETELY AVOIDED ANY MENTION of climate change / global warming / AGW {...you know, the same GreenGarbage which is spouted by Niagara Falls' own mayor, Jim Disgusting Diodati, and, by Canada's Prime Selfie Prince, Justin Turdo!

Spiteri (if he had been acting as a journalist...) had a GREAT opportunity to get David Phillips to PROVE that the cold weather right in Niagara was evidence of man-made global warming (as Liberals claim) -  but instead, Spiteri and Cagey hooked up to carry out just another typical version of the evasive Cagey Climate Tango stage act. They were both there NOT to prove 'climate change', but to PROPAGATE the perception of 'climate change'.

The intent was to sow GreenFear, to show scary 'extremes' of weather, to create a pretense (using Cagey as a willing 'front man' veneer) that this cold weather somehow is evidence of "AGW climate change" without actually saying it, nor showing any evidence.
This was just another media report in a GreenFear panoply of propaganda.


Let's look at 2016, at yet more in a long string of pathetic instances where David Phillips happily pops up in some alarmist climate-change propaganda piece, spouting what amounts to essentially pseudo-scientific baffle-gab.

There was the piece of hagiograhy in the Jan.17, 2016 Toronto Red Star where Amy Dempsey fawningly writes:

"During the Harper era, when scientists were routinely restricted from speaking to the press about their research, reporters could call Phillips and ask him about anything at all."
{Nice try at deflection Amy: Your hero Cagey Dave STILL can't prove climate change is caused by humans - even in 2017, under Turdo. Get it?! Enough with your 'scientists were muzzled' Liberal bullshit propaganda! That's also Grant Lafleche's parroted meme! haha. pathetic.}
“Canada’s going to be a warmer country, there’s no question about it,” he said in a January 2014 interview with Peter Mansbridge that aired on national television." 
{Pardon me, Amy: your deflective slant in not questioning Cagey's assertion {that 'there is no question'} belies your bias. It's laughably taken by you as gospel - and not something to be questioned! It's just that there'd be" NO QUESTION ABOUT IT" from CBC hacks, such as Mansbridge then, or from Toronto Star hacks such as Amy Dempsey now - you see, their default position is the false "it's all settled" meme, so therefore, that conveniently precludes having to ask any inconvenient questions.

In Amy's  Greenshevik-infected mind, there cannot be room for questions. The GreenFear propaganda house of cards relies on blind adherence to the "it's all settled" narrative; the GreenFear pushers require that their meme be parroted, not questioned.

Canada's Cagey Climatologist here plays to the GreenFear-infected choir - no challenge is really expected, to whatever he may blurt! If Cagey says 'there's  no question' -  well, then, why would the Toronto Star's  Amy Dempsey ask any questions? Why disturb the mutually convenient narrative?! She's there to obediently propagate the GreenFear narrative, like a stenographer.

That's the choreographed Cagey Tango: the media don't ask, Cagey doesn't tell. It's all about the insinuation, innuendo, and hyperbole of climate change, without the actual evidence of AGW.

There ARE a lot of questions that Cagey's media sycophants just (conveniently!) can't think of asking, since they've been programmed by Al Gore, David Suzuki, Stephane Dion and Jim Bradley to believe 'it's all settled'.}

How did he get away with talking about climate change, of all things? “I think it’s because I try to stick to the science,” he says. “I stay away from the politics and the policy.”

{Hmm: 'stick to the science' eh? Swell, Dave - so, what specific "science" shows that AGW causes "climate change?? Anyone been asking you about that little detail - proof of AGW from Canada's Top Climatologist?!!
Hey David Phillips: Provide your AGW evidence, or stop with the fake climate-change propaganda!!

The Toronto Star happily publishes horseshit like this from the likes of Amy Dempsey, yet, there is no substantiation for the GreenFear innuendo being spread. It remains innuendo, fluffed and puffed by the idolizing press. Amy Dempsey - like hundreds of reporters before her - had a clear chance to ask David Phillips to show his evidence for AGW climate change; but, not surprisingly - like those hundreds of others - she didn't ask. She refused. She chose not to challenge whatever shifty gospel she may have believed that Cagey Dave was preaching, and instead, did the usual Cagey Tango}

“The other thing, too, is I never told Ottawa when I was asked for an interview. Because we were supposed to say when the interview took place, give a list of the questions, and the answers, who was it, how long was it …” Sometimes he gives 12 interviews a day. Logging that information would have eaten up much of his week. So he didn’t do it. “And they never really asked me,” he says. “They never rapped my knuckles.”

{Wow: so Cagey Dave refused to do what his employers asked him to do - gosh, what a hero.

Similarly: Amy Dempsey refused to do what journalists ought to do - ask questions.

Instead, she simply propagandized to her GreenFear-infected TorStar echo chamber.

But let's get back on track to the real issue being whitewashed here: Turdo is now PM - so, where is Amy's story NOW. asking Cagey Dave Phillips for official evidence from Environment Canada, proving AGW?!

Y'see - it was never about proving AGW; it was about dutifully extending and propagandizing the hoax; and it was about sliming Harper. They couldn't prove AGW before Harper; they couldn't prove it during Harper, and they can't prove it after Harper. But, oh, how the innuendo machine cranked out the GreenFear!!

Even though Canada's Cagey Climatologist David Phillips HIMSELF intimates that he was NOT in any way muzzled or reprimanded under Harper, somehow his claim was either misinterpreted or purposefully misunderstood by Amy - because his phony muzzlement was a fake lib story from the beginning.

And here we see that Amy just used the phony "scientists are muzzled" meme AGAIN here in this story - really, for no other purpose than to slime Harper... - even though Turdo is in power, and even though Cagey just told her he wasn't muzzled!
So - even though Cagey sang Amy a different tune - Amy ignored him, as her mind was preoccupied with the 'it's all settled' GreenCrap agenda}

"Perhaps it’s because he walked the line without stepping over it, stating facts without casting blame or offering his opinion. Or maybe after 48 years and all his achievements, he’s untouchable".
{GreenFear pushers eagerly want Cagey to crow on about climate change. Over the years, hundreds of them tried to spin Cagey's facts about weather into innuendo-laden GreenFear doomsday stories - - - like Amy does
       If Cagey is 'untouchable', it is only because propagandists such as Amy Dempsey allow him to be! Do you understand your own willing role as an enabler here, Amy? Do you get your own role in your own self-fulfilling prophesy?!}

"Phillips acknowledges that colleagues may have felt he didn’t use his platform to take a strong enough stand on climate change".
    {You were getting close, here Amy - but you chose not to cross the line from being a biased GreenFear propaganda peddler to acting as an impartial journalist!}.

"And indeed, his friend Phil Chadwick, who speaks admiringly of Phillips, says: “I wish sometimes he would have been a bit more definitive on climate change, but I totally understood what his circumstances were.”

{Maybe Cagey doesn't have the 'definitive' evidence which admirer Chadwick thinks he has!
How much more climate change innuendo would Chadwick like Cagey to peddle? Does he want Cagey to lie??
   Let's ask AGAIN, since Chadwick (like Amy) seems to have had his ears full of GreenCrap:   WHAT exactly did Chadwick "totally understand" about Cagey's "circumstances"?!?
Cagey wasn't muzzled; Cagey makes that clear himself. Yet, that just cannot register in Chadwick's or Amy's GreenFear-packed skulls. So, what the f*ck is Chadwick talking about?!

What exactly were these ominous 'circumstances' which Chadwick mentions - other than the already false innuendo of 'muzzlement'?!
What were these mysterious "circumstances" which, in some unexplained-by-anyone way, held back Cagey?!???
Chadwick doesn't really say, and Amy doesn't bother to ask Chadwick!! Great journalism propaganda, eh??! Furthermore, neither did Amy ask Cagey himself, to explain what he thought Chadwick meant! Her goal was simply to paint an image of innuendo!!

Amazing: Amy's story - without questioning - just piles on innuendo BASED ON OTHER INNUENDO!! Sort of like Climate Gate was all about, BTW!

In fact, the case can strongly be made, that Cagey WASN'T ASKED by Amy about proving AGW, because it would require him providing actual evidence (rather than loquacious innuendo).
So, he couldn't very well risk having anyone actually pinning him down with unexpected specific questions on climate change, which would soon show that the "climate change" aspects of any of Cagey's claims were essentially conflated, glorified, weather garbage.

Does Chadwick really think that David Phillips isn't cagey enough to not get caught in a climate change lie? Cagey's moniker ain't fer nothin', you know!!!

There is a pretension to uphold here for the AGW-infected community, which would not hold up under scrutiny.
It's best for the media just to play along with the Cagey Tango, and NOT ask for AGW specifics; beat around the bush all ya want, conflate this with that, throw in some irrelevant innuendo together with some homespun homilies - just DON'T ask Canada's Senior Climatologist for the Chadwickian "definitive" evidence of AGW!
The hoax itself must not be challenged. (Read Chapter 17 below, to see how CTV did it - it's the same template, over and over...)

TorStar's Amy skillfully, dutifully, and obediently abides - deflect, peddle innuendo, slime Harper - but DO NOT ask the real questions!!

What a heroic effort to add to the FAKE NEWS gallery!

Does Chadwick prefer that Cagey just out and out peddle climate change lies???
Would that satisfy Chadwick - having Cagey become an outright GreenFear-monger?

Cagey's slicker than that: Cagey peddles climate innuendo!!! Your perception of what Cagey peddles is YOUR problem, make of it what you will. Hey, it's hot - is it climate change, or weather... who knows? Hey, it's cold - is it climate change or weather... who knows?! And Cagey's trademarked folksy caginess just rolls on.}

"Phillips strives for balance. The doom-and-gloom perspective of some environmentalists has never sat well with him. “Why would we change if the world’s going to end in 2056?” he says. “I think you’ve gotta give people hope. And so what I try to do is to say you know it’s not necessarily doom and gloom. It’s not the end.”"
{Yet unbalanced Liberal GreenFear pushers - y'know, the carbon-tax pushing doomsayers who always tell us that we're past some imaginary 'tipping-point' - WANT you to believe that 'it's the end'.}


Another example of  classic GreenFear crap appeared in Joseph Brean's Dec. 7, 2016 National Post story:

 "...Environment Canada’s senior meteorologist {...note: some some reason, Phillips was referred to as a 'meteorologist' in this NP story, yet in other past publications he was referred to as 'senior climatologist'...} David Phillips said the main effect of this increasingly moist warm air is that when it rains, more falls in less time, as in the kind of deluge Phillips called a "Texas gullywasher"...
Canada is second coldest and first snowiest country in the world, so it is hard to convince Canadians that climate change “has some evil to it,” Phillips said. Many simply look fondly to a future of milder winters and longer summers. A bit of flooding might seem like a small price to pay.
But as he described it, this is not your grandfather’s flood, the classic river backup caused by melt water and ice blockage. It is a modern artifact of a highly urbanized society in an era of warming climate, when a single flooded road can leave people stranded and at risk of death.
“That’s the kind of thing that scares the bejeebies out of insurance people,” he said. “You could have floodier floods and droughtier droughts.”

So, there you are:

the Jim "Liberal Gullywasher Of Bullshit" Bradley Scientific School Of Floodier Floods And Droughtier Droughts... Now MORE STEAMIER and MORE CRAPPIER than ever!
There you have it: the National Post reporter Brean DID NOT ask David Phillips to provide actual specific evidence of AGW.
Instead - as many other reporters have similarly done with Cagey Climatologist David Phillips in the past - the National Post simply fear-mongered and spread fake news about climate-change, using David Phillips' silly, homey - but ultimately non-substantive - pontifications as a 'legitimizing' cover. 

The Cagey Climatologist Fan Club just loves Phillips. 


Let's continue with Cagey's Climate Saga:
In a Sheena Goodyear story written Dec. 7, 2016,  the CBC happily, obligingly published an outright lie with their deceptive, GreenFear-laden headline "The weather outside is frightful thanks to climate change and the polar vortex", (scary eh?! - apparently, Canada never had cold and snow before...umm... climate change...) 

The CBC, naturally, had to run to the Cagey Climatologist for a bit'o'GreenFear-mongering:

"... "Instead of a bungee cord, it looks like more of a roller-coaster. It dips and dives. It kind of goes up over British Columbia and then dives down across the Prairies down to the United States and then comes swooping up towards eastern Canada," he says.

Sometimes, it brings warm air from the United States, giving Canada the warm November it just had. But then it swoops down and brings cold Arctic air, which is what's happening right now in western Canada.
And the cold tends to linger.
"It's hard to kick the cold air out. It's like molasses — it's thick, it's heavy, it's dense, it hugs the ground," Phillips said. "So when it becomes entrenched, well, you get that pattern set up and it just doesn't move, you see. You get day after day and week after week and then, my God, month after month with the same kind of flow."

The polar vortex 

So how does climate change come into all of this?
Arctic and Antarctic sea ice have reached record lows, declining by an area twice the size of Alaska, according to recent measurements.
"We're seeing the Arctic ice cap is melting. We're seeing more open water. The ice is thinner and so there's more heat getting up from the water into the air in the Arctic," Phillips says..
This causes the polar vortex — a swirling area of low-pressure cold air over the North Pole — to weaken.
"Therefore, it leaves home. It migrates," Phillips says. "It's sort of like Canadians going to Florida for the winter. The polar vortex comes south, and it hangs out down in the South and, of course, it brings its cold wind with it."

The bright side?

The good news is the wobbly jet stream means there will most likely be periods of respite this winter. What's more, meteorologists predict this La Nina will be a weak one. 
"We don't think it's going to be, as they say, a punishing winter, in spite of what the west are seeing right now," Phillips says.
"I'm not saying it's going to be the Goldilocks of winters but ... if you can remember the toughest winter you ever lived through and then remember last year, it might be something between those two."."
Yep: 'My God, it might be this, might be that, it's a roller coaster, it dips, it dives, it's like molassess'..., blah bla bla...
Phillips' blathering completely evades the issue that 'climate change' is being used here as political propaganda. Phillips never says  (but more pointedly, he is NEVER ASKED by hack CBC reporter Sheena Easton to prove) that the 'climate change' they are referring to, is caused by man (AGW). 
After all, isn't that what it's all about?? What a bait-and-switch dance of conflation going on here!
The Toronto Star prints a false headline ominously blaming "climate change" - - - for causing winter weather! 
Yet no one asks Ole Cagey Dave to prove that "climate change" caused by man, caused winter.... get it? Get the ridiculousness of their scam now?
Isn't it the spectre of AGW  {which is the GreenFear movement's underlying tenet; their touchstone, their foundation; their unshakable premise; their supporting pillar, their all-pervading, 'all-settled' undercurrent}  which the CBC and others are hoping that the Cagey Climatologist will confirm through loquacious innuendo (...yet without actually saying so, nor providing proof) that 'climate change' is ALL MAN-MADE, and, that it can only be mitigated by lots of new taxes being instituted and spent by 'well-meaning' Liberals??
Phillips seems more than happy to oblige as a cover for GreenFear-pushers, who act as if for millions of years, some kind of fictitious climate stasis had always been the norm, and that 'climate change' (...which, of course, we have been all indoctrinated 'nudge-nudge-wink-wink' to believe was caused by Harris, Harper, Bush, now Trump, and those denying deniers...) is somehow the new kid on the block (!!)... and furthermore, that 'climate-change' can not only be stopped, but even be REVERSED (wahoooo!!) simply by voting for creeps such as Justin Trudeau, Elizabeth May, Jim Bradley, and Kathleen Wynne!!
It's Phillips and his interviewers who seem to 'dip' and dive' for the cause, peddling their pattern of entrenched views, trying their best to soft-peddle Jim Bradley's Liberal Green Fear delusions.
CBC's slick propaganda peddled here is in the hazy 'nudge-nudge-wink-wink-y'know-what-we mean-and-who-is-to-blame' assumptions being made, and the definitions remaining fuzzy and unspecified. it's just great all-purpose, typical climatalarmist propaganda - no other way to describe it, is there?
Sadly, Canada's Cagey Climatologist, by abiding in this effort, has shown which way his wind blows.


On the CBC nightly news (Dec.23, 2016) there was another sacred confirmation of how far global warming and climate change has been shoved up CBC 'reporter's' asses, and how they dutifully shovel their GreenFear onto their loving, appreciative, sheep-like audience. 
Wendy Mesley and that creepy CBC 'science' guy Bob McDonald were in a smug lather about Trump referring to THEIR beloved climate change religion as a hoax. You could see the seething hate/shock/disdain in their eyes; their non-comprehension of how anyone could challenge their GreenFear gospel. It was revealing, it was a teachable moment, it was precious and above all, it was sad. It wasn't news that these two CBC clowns were reporting, it was Green Bolshevik agit-prop.
And no; they did not bother to ask Cagey the Canadian Climate King about why Environment Canada hasn't proven the very "climate change" which they themselves were just sneering at Trump about.
Is somebody at CBC "muzzling" Mesley or McDonald, to stop them from obtaining all the "climate change" proof they could ever want, from Canada's Chief Climatologist, David Phillips???
(hahahah.... as if Wendy and Bob were really ever going to go to Cagey to PROVE CLIMATE CHANGE once and for all... hahahah)
Or, is someone "muzzling" Ole Cagey, stopping him from revealing the actual evidence of climate change, once and for all??!!
Funny how these GreenFear pushers continually spout their climate fear agenda, yet somehow can't get/won't provide the actual evidence, which supposedly exists right under their noses at the un-muzzled Environment Canada!!
All the CBC reporters had to do was ASK CAGEY to show them the climate change proof  - - but that is NOT the point is it? The point is to keep the GreenFear charade afloat, not to really prove it; the point is to spread endless innuendo and confuse and conflate cherry picked weather with meaningless climate projections, with hints that "progressive" saviours such as Liberal charlatans Jim Bradley or Justin Trudeau can PREVENT the climate from changing, if only they could have an endless supply of taxes.
To closed-minded CBC clowns, their GreenFear-based religion is 'all-settled' and cannot be questioned. It was a typical drive-by anti-Trump smear, but, apparently it's mandatory for the CBC to keep flailing Liberal climate change deceptions.


But let's get back to Cagey's bountiful loquaciousness, which has no bounds (!) - here's yet another piece, this time by CTV's Taline McPhedran, Dec.11, 2016) :
"According to Dave Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada, the weather system moved from the northwestern part of the United States and over to the Great Lakes, heading northeast. A majority of areas in southern Ontario are expected to get anywhere from 10 to 15 centimetres of snow by Monday morning.“That’s more than we had all of last year and this is only the first big one,” Phillips told CTV News Channel on Sunday.."
OMG: Canada's SENIOR CLIMATOLOGIST is warning us this is only the first big one ----  that means, there will be more Big Ones  ---- Ohhh Great Gaia... what to do? --- what to do?!? --- can we get Liberal hacks Trudeau and Jim Bradley to prevent all this???
We don't want any 'Big Ones' anymore!! We want nothing to change!!
There was not much snow at all in St. Catharines during Dec. 11 - Dec 12, 2016!! A little bit of snow fell overnight - WAY LESS than what fell during "ALL OF LAST YEAR", as David Phillips fear-mongered about, and got completely wrong.
Cagey easily, glibly and WILLINGLY fear-mongered - simply on speculation.
Canada's Cagey Climatologist CANNOT GET THE WEATHER right, a DAY in advance; yet, this is the same darling go-to guy when the media needs a booster-dose of Climate Change GreenFear.
But... oh, yes... Slick Cagey always has an out {...hence, the nick name!} He did say "a majority of areas are expected to get anywhere from 10 15 cm..." so, there ya go: ya can't pin Ole Cagey down! Ya can't make the crap stick to Cagey, there's always some indecipherable home-spun connotation, some weasel word, an asterisk, an 'expectation', a qualifier, a generalization, a 'potentially' this, a' likely' that, a 'possibility' here, a 'probability' there...
After all, in Cagey's world, some snow was bound to fall somewhere, right!? Point is: was this man-made climate change at work??? The CTV reporter NEVER ASKED.
Was there some unspoken rule that, in literally hundreds of interviews over the years, prevented anyone from asking Canada's Senior Climatologist David Phillips to provide evidence of 'climate change' caused by man? Why isn't anyone actually asking Cagey Dave about that?! Why isn't ANYONE asking David Phillips if the 'climate' can be prevented from 'changing', and if so, how?! What is it with this phony dance, this Cagey Two-Step, which the media continually performs with David Phillips?
Gosh: if we gave ALL of our treasury's dollars to Justin Trudeau and to Kathleen Wynne to Save The Planet, will that Stop And Reverse Climate Change???????! Will we finally get rid of this horrible changing climate once and for all, and just go back to a good ole static climate, where nothing ever changed, like we once had for millions of years when everything was good, when there was no climate change... heh heh...  to scare us - - - until that Harris came along and ruined it all? Seriously... this is what Liberal MPP Jim Bradley - Ontario's Godfather Of  GreenFear - wanted us to believe...
Politics and weather are conflated for political purposes.
The cumulative work is in conflating weather with GreenFear, using elements of the former to 'hint at' (but not prove) the latter. 


Another instance: Dec.21, 2016 CTV News presenter (reporter??) Erin Paul had the apparently-mandatory-because-it's-the-start-of-winter TV interview ("The real deal is coming".... ohh... ohhhh... are you afraid yet of the ominous GreenFear being peddled??!) with the "expert" Senior Climatologist David Phillips, and there was a lot of the typical homey banter.

Yet, CTV reporter Erin Paul  did NOT ask the "expert":
 'David, is this climate change? Is this all caused by anthropogenic, man-made global warming? Do you have any evidence that this is man-made 'climate-change'?
I'm asking you this specifically, because also today - Dec. 21, 2016, the same day that we are interviewing you - CTV reported  Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau saying that 'climate change is a fact'.
David, what 'climate change fact' is the Prime Minister referring to here?
Do you  - as Canada's Senior Climatologist - have any evidence of the 'climate change fact' which Justin Trudeau is talking about? Don't the pipelines, which Trudeau was approving today- while telling us that 'climate change is a fact' - carry oil which supposedly causes climate change??!
David can you please expand on these specific definitions, and reconcile these assumptions, which have become political memes without scientific bearing?'

Note that CTV never bothered to ask about the conflicting 'news' reports appearing on the same day, on their own site!
They had a chance to question Phillips, yet, they demurred, and shied away from the issue of climate change.
THAT kind of conversation WILL NEVER HAPPEN on Canadian media. 

Remember the Liberal meme about 'Canada's scientists being muzzled'?!

Yet: when exactly had David Phillips ever been "muzzled"???? Has anyone ever asked Phillips about THAT meme??! 

Has Justin Trudeau ever directed Canada's esteemed - and unmuzzled! - Environment Canada to provide evidence of the 'fact' of 'man-made climate change', so that his Liberals can justify valiantly "battling climate change" by spending ever-more taxes?!

Wouldn't Cagey be more than happy to provide Justin Trudeau with this proof, with this "fact" - as Trudeau claims - of man-made climate change?!
Seems like Trudeau won't ask, because Phillips can't prove it. 

Why doesn't the CTV news organization NOW ask Canada's Senior Un-muzzled Climatologist David Philips for his official stance on man-made climate change??!

What is stopping CTV from asking David Phillips (now that he has ....ummm....apparently been un-muzzled by Liberal Saviours such as Justin Trudeau) to provide official confirmation of AGW?

So: who is "muzzling" David Phillips today??! The left's 'evil' bogeyman Harper can't be blamed.

Here we are at the end of 2016 - yet, the media continue their darling little GreenFear dance with Cagey; they are SELF-'MUZZLING'; conspiring together NOT to actually confront the 'climate change' charade which they both dance around, and sadly, help perpetuate.
It seems like an unspoken don't ask/don't tell arrangement - the media doesn't ask what Phillips can't (won't?) answer; in turn, Phillips happily abides, spouting cagey weather homilies and dire innuendo, but never really addressing the elephant in the room: providing evidence that "climate change" is "man made".

After hundreds of interviews over the years, by hundreds of writers: where's David Phillips' defense - or repudiation - of the meme (which Justin Trudeau now repeats) that 'man-made climate change' is a fact??

This CTV reporter Erin Paul (as did many other reporters before her) HAD THE CHANCE to ACTUALLY ask David Phillips some real questions, but all we got was softball 'nudge-nudge-wink-wink' FLAKY FLUFF.


Speaking about flaky fluff, here we go with yet another TYPICAL example of yet ANOTHER vacuous interview with Canada's Cagey Climatologist, David Phillips (...the dance never ends with this guy: the media's at him essentially everyday...) This time it was reporter Bill Graveland who joined the long list of partners sent in to dance with Cagey Dave (Globe and Mail  (Jan.13, 2017):

    "It’s not as if winter is over by a long shot,” Phillips said. “We’ve just hit the halfway point, but the good news is ... the flow seems to be coming more from the Pacific than the Arctic.”
    Although there are no records being set in Western Canada, Phillips said it has been a tough year for the four western provinces. Vancouver has received twice as much snow as normal and recorded 30 days where temperatures were below normal — double the average of 15. “It has been persistently cold for that period,” said Phillips. “In fact, if you look at the average temperature in December, the last time there was a colder December was 1990. That was more than 25 years ago. It was a bit of a shocker.”
    Winnipeg received a record snowfall for the month of December, while Calgary has suffered freezing temperatures and heavy snowThis winter in Western Canada follows one of the warmest years on record in 2015 and, in many jurisdictions, winter was essentially cancelled last year, he said.
    Canadians tend to base their weather expectations on the winter before, so this season has come as a shock to many, Phillips said.
    “It’s like a punch in the face. Clearly, when you look at the temperatures, certainly the amount of snow, the number of cold days — if you’re whining, it’s not without cause. It has been tough.”
Reporter Graveland never once asked David Phillips whether the 'persistent cold' was caused by man-made global warming / climate change (...as experienced climatologists like... um... Jane Fonda or... ah... Leo 'What's a Chinook?' DiCaprio might have us believe). Graveland didn't ask exactly WHY it was a "shocker" that the month of Dec. 2016 was the coldest December since Dec. 1990. 
Was this cold directly attributable to AGW climate change???? Or was it the previous warmth?!??
And, who would be 'shocked' - and why? 
What kind of expectations had been fed to those who suddenly, somehow, were 'punched in the face' and became 'shocked'? Were these people 'shocked' because they experienced a paradigm-shift after having been conditioned (ie punched in the face?!) by years of leftist GreenFear-mongering?  
When Phillips claimed that "winter was essentially cancelled last year"...
 Graveland DID NOT BOTHER to ask Phillips exactly where, in which exact jurisdictions was winter' cancelled'? Was Phillips referring to the Prairies in 2016?!
Neither did Graveland bother to ask Phillips if his statement that "winter was cancelled" was direct evidence of climate change!
 The opening WAS RIGHT THERE for Graveland to ask for clarification - yet this reported REFUSED!!! 

Winter was cancelled, Cagey tells him; sounds like global warming, then, doesn't it?! Yet: there was NO follow up from this Globe and Mail reporter!!
Cagey's comments were just left there  unquestioned - as a meme to hang and ferment in the reader's mind...
... Winter was cancelled... Winter was cancelled... Winter was cancelled... repeat... Winter was cancelled... Winter was cancelled... it must be Global Warming, you see; it's gotta be Climate Change, you see... Winter was cancelled... Do not ask why... Winter was cancelled. . .

All that reporter Graveland had to do (...as a journalist in a supposedly 'open and free' society) was to follow up on Cagey's statements: "David, you just stated that winter was essentially cancelled in the Canadian West in 2016, correct? Was that directly attributable to Global Warming, caused by man?" 
But, well, well... Lookit that: Graveland doesn't ask and David Phillips doesn't answer!!!
THAT'S how the climate-change hoax game is played!!
Well done, gentlemen!
Who's muzzling who???!!! hahahahaha
Nice performance!
Great Cagey Two-Step Tango dance moves!
Good show! What a conjob!!
The Globe and Mail had the chance (but refused) to pin down Canada's Senior Climatologist and get down to the facts and get the evidence of all that 'man made global warming / climate change' which Jim Bradley, Justin Trudeau, Kathleen Wynne... and climatologist Jane Fonda... say is happening. 
But facts would cloud and hinder the continual propagation of GreenFear innuendo; therefore, we have this ongoing, drawn-out Cagey Tango, where the two willing dancers coyly carry out their choreographed moves, winking at each other knowingly, dropping an opening hint here, a seductive spin there, coyly suggesting the kinds of things both know must better be left unsaid... ...  sheesh... 
Was reporter Graveland self-muzzled, or was he muzzled by his Globe and Mail bosses to NOT ask Environment Canada's Senior Cagey Climatologist for evidence to support that what Phillips reports, is directly attributable to climate change? 
That IS the intended, underlying message here, isn't it - alleging 'climate change', without proving it? Scaring the shit out of people with doomsday GreenFear innuendo so that leftists can have their excuse to raise taxes?
Why the massive disconnect between the media blaring everyday about 'climate change' - - and yet, not actually asking for the corroborating evidence about said 'climate change' from Canada's SENIOR climatologist? 
It should be easy for Phillips to prove {...seeing as that even Al Gore and David Suzuki and Leonardo DiCaprio and Jerry Brown and Stephane Dion... and we can now add the disgusting hack Juliete Payette to the GreenFear cabal...)   ALL 'know' that global warming is caused by man! 'It's all settled', doncha know!! 
So why can't Canada's Senior Climatologist actually come out and admit that everything he reports, is and always was, caused by man-made climate change?!
Cagey is not muzzled anymore, under Turdo, is he?? (...as the Canadian lefties loved to allege when Harper was in power, when they were spreading the meme that "Canada's scientists are being muzzled") Which scientists were muzzled? Was it David Phillips? Or is Philips not a "scientist", just a glorified weatherman??!! Why is this guy ALWAYS being quoted, and yet, after the interview, we are left with the realization that he had nothing to say. How can this occur over literally thousands of media interviews over the years - and never a request - nor an answer - about proving climate change?! Its FLICKING unreal.
     Cagey Dave could  just come right out and now admit that EVERY interview he has given since he started his career, was actually a long-arc demonstration of climate change evidence, right from the start, from Day One.
He could say "Over the thousands of interviews I've given over the years, I can now admit that I have been actually reporting on man-made climate-change all this time, since the beginning of my career, because man causes the climate which creates the weather. Or maybe it's the other way around? {Oh, well... as Hillary conveniently says, what it does it matter now, anyway?!} Man definitely has always had something to do with it, way before I came along. Don't blame me, I'm just the messenger; blame man. Man is to blame for the weather which causes the climate to change, which then changes the weather - or something like that! - you see? This has always been so, since the dawn of man."
That would make Al Gore and Canada's Climate Clown Catherine McKenna and Jim Bradley real happy. So, why isn't David Phillips letting loose and telling us the truth? What's he hiding about climate change??!
Why hasn't anyone actually asked Canada's Senior Climatologist about... umm... "CLIMATE CHANGE"??
Speaking of DiCaprio, Robert Williamson commented: "Leonardo DiCaprio's 8,000 mile round trip in one day on a private jet.. He's one of the morons that tells all the rest of us that we have to cut back our middle class lifestyles to "..save the planet" Leonardo DiCaprio jumped on to a private jet to fly from Cannes on the French Riviera, to New York, U.S.A. After receiving a green award, the actor then flew straight back across the Atlantic to France again so he would not miss the banquet and party with his friends at an AIDs benefit gala. He spent a week lounging on his superyacht in the Mediterranean, just after receiving another environmental accolade. Leonardo DiCaprio flew to Brazil on another trip to catch the soccer matches.... then cruised up and down the South American coast ...partying with his friends on his Arab pal's motor yacht which he chartered... one of the largest private yachts in the world... His Arab pal is from the United Arab Emirates and he's an oil tycoon. The yacht is the fifth largest private yacht in the world.. It's name is "Topaz". Length: 147 m (482 ft) Beam: 21.50 m (70.5 ft) The main engines of the Topaz are twin Pielstick diesel engines, each with power of 7990 hp. This is enough power for the yacht to reach a service speed of 22.9 knots, while the maximum speed is over 25.5 knots. The yacht is also equipped with two diesel generators and an emergency diesel generator. These aggregates provide power to the stabilizers, navigation equipment and all the facilities on board. Topaz is equipped with zero-speed stabilizers, jacuzzi (on deck), double helicopter landing pads, swimming pool, tender garage, swimming platform, air conditioning, underwater lights. There's also a fitness hall, cinema and a large conference room.
And in 2014, emails hacked from film studio Sony revealed he took six private flights in just six weeks which cost $138,616.00 This travel included two round trips from Los Angeles to New York, and one from LA to Las Vegas. This is the moron who spoke on the horrors of climate change/global warming at the U.N. and took advantage of the Oscar Ceremonies to speak on how bad Global Warming and CO2 are... and how all of us have to cut way back on our CO2 producing lifestyles.... to "...save the planet.." and how me must leave the oil in the ground "...where it belongs."
Kurt Boyd commented on the hypocrisy of the climate-change GreenFear peddling movement: "The Left has figured out long ago that signaling virtue is far easier than actually having virtue".


The Sad Saga of Canada's Cagey Climatologist continues:
Fast forward to another CBC GreenFear piece  (Jan.31, 2017)   this time written by Lauren Pelley, where the dark insinuation is that somehow climate change caused the month of January to be cloudy, sunless, and , well... dark. Lauren Pelley again does the Cagey Two Step Tango with David Phillips, never once asking Cagey "Is all this evidence of man made climate change, Dave? Will the carbon taxes legislated by Sunny Ways Turdo eliminate these dark days forever, Dave? Should we all vote for the Liberals, Dave, to Save The Planet From Peril??"
Another sad demo of Fake News on the GreenFear-peddling climate front, in a long line of similar Cagey Dave  propaganda.
C'mon, somebody: just ask Ole David Phillips, if he has any evidence whatsoever of man made climate change!
NO ONE is preventing Canada's Senior Cagey Climatologist from answering.
No one is muzzling David Phillips! (Eh, Grant Lafleche?)
It's apparent that NO ONE IS ASKING!

The Cagey Two-Step should be called the Cagey Side Step, because that's what both participants in these climatalarmist phony 'interviews' are doing: one partner neatly, deftly side-steps asking 'questions', while the other moves in unison to provide nebulous, conflated side-stepping deflective 'answers'. 
The reporters are muzzling themselves, dancing a side-step around the climate change AGW issue with Ole Cagey, but never directly addressing it. 
The stench of GreenFear permeates their phony reports, the main purpose of which is to propagandize FOR GreenFear-policies, without actually demonstrating that the weather event factoids which Dave spouts, are actually caused by man.
All these "reports" over the years with David Philips amount to an impressive oeuvre of unsubstantiated GreenFear propaganda. It's a homey pastiche of cagily subtle hints, causal conflation, insidious double-meanings, allusions, dire innuendo, oblique comparisons.
Why aren't hacks such as Lauren Pelley (...in a long line of sad stenographers, pathetically  posing as 'journalists'...) asking the question?

The Canadian and the Ontario governments peddle claims about climate change which Canada's Senior Climatologist Phillips (to his discredit) cagily refuses to address (...although, of course, he freely could), and furthermore, which his enabler-"interviewers" (to their discredit) never dare ask (...although, of course, they freely could).

Therefore we have this ongoing delicately deceptive, deflective Cagey Tango, this phony show where two willing nudge-nudge-wink-wink partners choreograph their coy dance to propagate the GreenFear pretense without challenging the underlying premise. 
As the saying goes, it takes two to tango, so we see that Cagey and his long line of pathetic interviewers always seem to follow the same side-stepping template - they have both willingly peddled what amounts to a long-arc of innuendo posing as  'it's all settled climate science'.
In other words, it's designed to be fake - -it is appearance over substance; the propaganda effect is in performing the Cagey Tango in an illusory way that makes one believe that somehow, what is being shown shows evidence of climate change,  when in fact, after radi0 interviews, after TV interviews, after newspaper interviews - no such evidence is actually produced: Cagey babbles on and his bobble-headed interviewers just nod in blank stupor. 

It's designed to be 'politics-disguised-as-science' propaganda - a cagey conspiracy that is inherently apparent throughout hundreds upon hundreds of interviews: how can the question of "man made climate change" not ever be raised? They just dance around the issue from their faulty "it's all settled" premise.
It's as if the press spins what Cagey says as being 'evidence of climate change', when Cagey was only talking about common weather - - - a disconnect of cross-purposes, with the press seeing only what they wanted to see. Is that delusional or premeditated?! Who is pandering to who?? Who are they trying to con?

It's like David Phillips is in a weatherman's Canadian version of Being There; he's acting as Canada's Chauncey Gardener of weather, where Cagey Dave has been elevated to some kind of climate change deity, where everything he says is taken at face-value as wise greenie gospel explaining man made climate change.
And yet, you'd think that David Phillips would have recognized this scenario a long time ago, after perhaps being misunderstood after several interviews, and then set the record straight by openly saying yes, this IS evidence of AGW, or, no, this ISN'T evidence of AGW.
But Cagey Dave didn't challenge his interviewer's reports. They came to him, begging for wisdom and climate guidance, as they flocked to Chauncey. Cagey became a light in their proverbial darkness. They heard what Cagey uttered, and determined that it was wisdom. It reaffirmed their own beliefs, spoke to their innate suspicions, reflected their own illusions - how could it not mirror their own default bias?! Like Chauncey Gardener, Dave let the charade continue for years; unlike Chauncey, though, Cagey Dave had a chance - many chances - to set the record straight.

The Sad Saga of Canada's Cagey Climatologist will continue.


Let's ask:
Why hasn't anyone in Canada asked Canada's Senior Cagey Climatologist to comment on Stephen Capozzola's article about the  fake basis of the Paris climate agreements?!

Again, you'd think that all those Canadian GreenFear-pushing media outlets which amplify the climate change lie on a daily basis, would have asked David Phillips, or flakey Liberals such as Justin Trudeau, Catherine McKenna, Jim Bradley, Stephane Dion, or Kathleen Wynne, or daffy David Suzuki, for their detailed responses - detailed responses, you know, not the politicized GreenGarbage rhetoric that is their usual hallmark.

As Stephen Capozzola asks (PoliZette, Feb.14, 2017) in "Discovering the extent of  global warming cheating: Once experts aren't bound by politics, the truth about climate change surfaces":
 "...One has to wonder why, if the case for man-made warming is so tenuous, would alarmists resort to such questionable methods? Wouldn't the more obvious recourse be to question the hypothesis itself? But such is the state of the contemporary global warming debate. Hundreds of advocacy groups are engaged in an all-out campaign to certify the premise of anthropogenic warming..."

That sums up the bullshit which has been spewed by the skewed left, deluded and besotted with creating a scenario of fear to push their socialist agenda. Canada's prime minister Zoolander Turdo has happily pushed the phony climate change agenda - yet, we are to believe that somehow scientists were umm... 'muzzled'... by someone {...Harper, Trump, Harris, Diefenbaker...???} to prevent them from revealing their unfounded 'truth' about supposed man made climate change!!! 
It's a bizarre reverse-onus bias being peddled here.
The 'man made global-warming / climate-change' hypothesis is NOT to be questioned; it is to be treated as Green Gospel.
The thing is, no one has asked Liberal climate liars Jim Bradley or Stephane Dion or Justin Trudeau, for their detailed evidence on supposed  man-made climate-change, details on the underlying AGW premise which they use on a daily basis to further their socialist agendas. 
These unsubstantiated claims you often hear in the media that 'science is muzzled' are themselves regurgitations of a phony meme, still constantly repeated in Green Bolshevik echo chambers; y'know, 'Harper muzzled scientists'; 'Trump muzzles science' etc.
Yet, when exactly was 'science muzzled'??? No one has ever asked the politicians who ought to know - such as Canada's and Ontario's Liberals, for example!!
There again is the falsity of the Green Lie;  Liberals in power in Canada - such as Jim Bradley - get away with peddling climate change bullshit without ever being held to account by a complicit media! The phony policies based on fairy-tale AGW fear-mongering are accepted, not questioned.
The media set the tone to ease in the Green Fear agenda years ago. The media has acted as the protectors for the political policies for which there is no scientific basis,  spreading a meme that 'science is being muzzled' - YET, they also spread the meme that 'the science is settled' - - - how utterly convenient to have these two contradictory memes in use, to support the same agenda!!! 
Interesting how the scientists who are supposedly 'muzzled', are only those who peddle the GreenFear agenda; yet, conveniently (for the GreenFear narrative to work) those scientists who challenge the 'it's all settled' meme are never glorified and raised to the hallowed status of being 'muzzled'- those scientists are immediately shamed, denigrated, and branded as "deniers" - that other gem of a meme beloved by the purveyors of Green Fascism, who are the true 'muzzlers' here. (see Tom Ferguson)
You see, it is only the GreenFear-pushers who can possibly be 'muzzled' {...do you see how the default bias works here?!}
The GreenFear-pushers can be elevated to a hallowed status as 'Victims Of Scientific Suppression' in the 'War On Science' - they are nothing less then glorious green martyrs, you see; but - if you do not subscribe to the "it's all settled" GreenFear fascist mantra, you are not a martyr; you are not deemed a Victim Of Scientific Suppression - you are labelled a 'denier' - as Time hack Eric Polley does in his Feb.16, 2017 fake news story "Climate change denial is the original fake news" .
Eric Polley, of course, can't be bothered to show any evidence of AGW (...that's never the point though, is it?!) - he just professionally peddles the GreenFear agenda. 
Time should be ashamed to peddle such one-sided nonsense, but they're not by far the only ones slickly suppressing science by skewering 'deniers' while skewing the facts - The Atlantic happily threw a couple of punches too, publishing Meehan Crist's Feb.10, 2017 story "How the new climate denial is like the old climate denial", without actually providing ANY evidence to support the AGW premise, which they claim is being 'denied'!
In a classic case of projection and deflection, Crist, Polley and their editors are themselves the deniers, denying the reality of their own false AGW premise. (Yikes: paradign shift alert!! Hypocrisy alert!!)
Their 'real' premise is the false GreenFear-premise: that AGW is 'all settled'; that's their unquestioned jumping off point. (Like drones chattering in their echo chambers, GreenFear-pushing climatalarmists seem to miss the irony that Crist's article is exactly the kind of article which Polley sneers about!)

It's all rather a convenient political construct, isn't it?!

Have a look at Terence Corcoran's insightful column "Canadian finds polar bears are doing fine — and gets climate-mauled" (National Post, Dec. 7, 2017) on how climatalarmists attack those who question their "it's all settled' claims:
" We take you now deep out onto the frozen floes of Arctic science and polar bears, where the most dangerous threat known to man and bear alike is lurking among the icebergs: Junk science.

As a starting point, we look to a story published December 1st on Vice News’s tech site, Motherboard, that included an interview with U.S. polar bear scientist/activist Stephen Amstrup. In the article, Amstrup accuses Canadian polar bear scientist Susan Crockford of filling her bear research with extreme allegations. Climate activists have targeted Crockford, a zoologist and adjunct professor of anthropology at the University of Victoria, because her research inconveniently finds that, despite their claims, polar bears are not at risk. “You don’t have to read far in her material to see that it is full of unsubstantiated statements and personal attacks on scientists, using names like eco-terrorists, fraudsters, green terrorists and scammers,” Amstrup claimed.

A few days later, Motherboard published a slithery retraction. After Crockford complained that Amstrup’s comments about her were “a lie” and that she has never used such terms, Amstrup “clarified” his comments. He said that when he accused Crockford of calling scientists fraudsters, he really meant to accuse “climate deniers as a whole, rather than Crockford in particular.”

Ah, well, mix-ups like wrongly accusing a scientist of slanderous language are the kind of things that can happen given the context. It’s all part of an escalating epic of polar bear junk science. It begins with a paper in which Amstrup, who heads the activist group Polar Bears International, and other climate scientists — including famed temperature hockey-stick maker Michael Mann — produce what must be one of the most pathetic scientific smear jobs in the already sorry history of climate change science smear campaigns. Also along for the hatchet job was Stephan Lewandowsky, an Australian psychologist who asserts that people who have doubts about climate policy are wacky conspiracy theorists who would also tend to believe the 1969 moon landing was faked. Motherboard published a slithery retraction

In their new paper published November 29th, in the journal BioScience, Mann, Lewandowsky, Amstrup and a dozen other authors, headed by Jeffrey Harvey of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology, attack Crockford as an unqualified climate “denier.”

Crockford is fighting back. On Wednesday, she demanded that BioScience retract the paper. She describes it, in part, as “simply malicious, and an egregious breach of professional ethics” and filled with “untrue statements.”

The sole personal target of the BioScience paper is Crockford. Crockford has written books on polar bears for children and adults (such as Polar Bears: Outstanding Survivors of Climate Change) and runs Polar Bear Science, a blog site that for years has drilled holes in many of the claims and predictions of mainstream climate scientists. One recent post showed that polar bear populations around Churchill, Man. were in good shape, amid lots of sea ice. Another recent item said Amstrup’s claims of sea-ice loss were inaccurate.

Climate scientists in the Amstrup/Mann/Lewandowsky camp have apparently had enough of Crockford’s steady debunking of many of their polar bear alarmist claims and have set out to destroy her and her reputation via what can only be called a vicious personal attack." in a new paper published November 29th, in the journal BioScience, Mann, Lewandowsky, Amstrup and a dozen other authors, headed by Jeffrey Harvey of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology, attack Crockford as an unqualified climate “denier.” ..."

    If anyone, it is the media (playing offense as usual for their leftist political agenda) which continues to protect their favourite politicians (and therefore their socialist policies) from scrutiny.
    Take at look at Martin Regg Cohn's sly worship to Green bolshevism, not surprisingly, printed in the Toronto Star and its drone propagation outlets, such as the Windsor Star, Feb.16, 2017. It takes a propagandist's skill to pen a supposed 'critique' which in fact is a lament that Liberal GreenFear Bolshevism doesn't go far enough! 
    Like Polley and Crist, Cohn purposefully fails to provide any specific evidence for AGW - but again: that's not the point, is it, to question the premise of AGW?! The point is to continue propagating the GreenFear hoax, without questioning the premise! {You know: just the way it works in Canada with hundreds of Cagey Climatologist interviews!}
    Cohn dutifully skips over any mention of the premise of 'man-made global warming/climate change', as he shills for policies which are solely based on that premise! The GreenFear hoax must be taken as a given - the rule is "it's all settled, don't you dare ask questions", and so the media stories are built upon that premise.  
    It is the media itself, which is muzzling science by propagating the phony GreenFear agenda, and demonizing anyone who dares challenge the underpinnings of this socialist fabrication.
    Think about it, they themselves are the muzzlers of science... they {...the 'free' press..!} self-muzzle scrutiny of the GreenFear lie, while themselves muzzling those who actually challenge the AGW premise. (Let's nominate Martin Regg Cohn and Eric Polley into Polley's own Climate Change Hoaxter's Hall of GreenFear-Peddling Shame, along with 'bright' lights such as Jim Bradley and the entire Ontario Liberal government, David Suzuki, Al Gore, Turdo and his Liberal Greensheviks in Ottawa... )

   It's an Orwellian deception enabled here by the media, where the real muzzlers deflect their own complicity in a meme designed to blame others for 'muzzling science'!!!

   You see this all the time in the St. Catharines Phony Standard (...look at the sickening GreenFear-mongering spewed by Liberal Climate-Fraud-Conman Glen Murray, Ontario's Chief Climate-Change Liar, in the Feb.15, 2017 Standard...); look on the CBC, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Huffington Post, Time, McLean's etc - the prevalent GreenFear-based climate-change lie is peddled on a daily basis, while its validity - and therefore, the validity of those political policies which are based on the AGW climate lie -  are purposefully not questioned; the premise is never scrutinized.
   I mean, who wants to believe that climate-change fraudsters such as Justin Trudeau will be flying to sign phony 'climate agreements' in Paris, agreements which are phony promises based on phony premises which have no scientific substance?!
 (... this is same smarmy  Justin Trudeau, who believes the climate-change AGW fairy tale is "a fact", who officially met with Donald Trump in Washington (on Feb.13, 2017) and who nevertheless, muzzled himself to avoid mentioning climate change! What a phony true believer!)

Stephen Capozzola wrote:
"For those who follow the heated squabbling of climate alarmists and skeptics, this has been a bombshell week. John Bates, a recently retired scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), has revealed that a 2015 study by the government agency was riddled with bias and questionable methodology.
More specifically, NOAA released a study in 2015 announcing that we haven’t had a “pause” in global warming over the past 15 years. Although the study flatly contradicted data from satellites and weather balloons documenting a net flatlining of temperatures, its findings were cited prominently at the 2015 Paris climate talks. The resulting Paris accord called for major decarbonization efforts worldwide.
According to Bates, the “pausebuster” study, led by former NOAA Director Thomas Karl, was rushed to publication before underlying data issues were resolved. Bates says that Karl was “insisting on decisions and scientific choices that maximized warming and minimized documentation.”
It’s interesting that the Obama administration rushed to embrace the Karl study, though, since a subsequent paper in Nature Magazine disagreed with the NOAA report, saying the observed “slowdown” in warming is real, and occurred at a time when carbon dioxide emissions have been rising steadily.
Even the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has stated that “the rate of warming over the past 15 years … is smaller than the rate calculated since 1951.”
Subsequent rumblings about possible bias at NOAA prompted Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) to investigate the matter in 2016, earning the veteran congressman considerable criticism. In taking on NOAA, Smith was accused of being "anti-science" and trying to "intimidate" the scientific community. The U.K.'s Guardian even referred to him as a "witch hunter."
Now, however, it looks like Smith was absolutely right to question whether taxpayer money was used in a dubious manner.
It's significant that satellite and weather balloon readings of global temperatures have steadily borne out observations that net temperatures have remained relatively stable since the start of the 21st century. However, NOAA said that its 2015 study used "significant improvements in the calculation of trends" to assemble "improved versions of both sea surface temperature and land surface air temperature datasets."
But NOAA engaged in two very questionable practices in order to arrive at their new and improved graph of temperatures. They included seawater temperature measurements collected from the engine intake valves of ocean-going vessels, and they estimated Arctic Ocean temperatures by extrapolating from nearby land areas.
The result? When compared to satellite and weather balloon data, their "new" findings eliminated the net flatlining of 21st century global temperatures and instead showed a series of scraggly rising temperature lines.
Essentially, NOAA wanted the American people to believe that eliminating satellite data, while including readings from engine thermometers, would yield a more accurate temperature record. For the casual observer, all of this might seem plausible. But clearly NOAA engaged in a questionable methodology.
Most notably, thermometers installed in the intake valves of ocean-going vessels aren't intended for such precise measurements of temperature. This becomes all the more apparent when one considers, for example, that 2016 was declared the "hottest year on record" by a mere 0.01 degrees Celsius.
But there's also the possibility of "heat contamination" from the ships themselves. Seawater intake valves also pose a big problem, as well. They vary in depth according to the size and shape of a vessel's hull — presenting a problem for collecting samples of uniform depth.
Interestingly, NOAA gave priority to these ship readings. As one of the report's authors explained, "[D]ata collected from buoys are cooler than ship-based data. In order to accurately compare ship measurements and buoy measurements over the long-term, they need to be compatible. Scientists have developed a method to correct the difference between ship and buoy measurements, and we are using this in our trend analysis."
How exactly did NOAA adjust for this discrepancy? They added 0.12 degrees Celsius (0.25°F) to each buoy to bring their measurements in line with readings taken from ship gauges.
It's somewhat amusing to look at NOAA's website, though, and see their justification for using engine intake readings. Essentially, they portray such measurements as a step forward in scientific progress, thanks to the "change from ships throwing a bucket over the side, bringing some ocean water on deck, and putting a thermometer in it, to reading the thermometer in the engine coolant water intake."
But NOAA took another liberty, as well. They decided to estimate Arctic Ocean temperatures based on neighboring land areas. Simply put, there are only a limited number of temperature monitoring stations in the Arctic.
As such, NOAA simply extrapolated Arctic Ocean temperatures from neighboring land-based measurements. However, much of the Arctic Ocean can remain ice-covered throughout the summer, and imposing warmer land surface data on areas of sea ice will inevitably skew temperature readings.
But this is what NOAA undertook in order to make the case for concerted worldwide action against fossil fuel use. And while many climate-watchers had suspicions about the validity of NOAA's approach, it took Bates' revelations to help confirm the bias that drove their findings.
One has to wonder why, if the case for man-made warming is so tenuous, would alarmists resort to such questionable methods? Wouldn't the more obvious recourse be to question the hypothesis itself? But such is the state of the contemporary global warming debate. Hundreds of advocacy groups are engaged in an all-out campaign to certify the premise of anthropogenic warming.
And with salaries, grants, and reputations on the line, it's doubtful that truth and scientific accuracy will get in the way of their ultimate quest. The American people deserve better, though, noting the large sacrifices that will be asked of them if the United States continues to follow the edicts of the Paris accord." Steven Capozzola has served as media director for both the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) and the U.S. Business & Industry Council (USBIC).
      Will any media outlet ask Justin Trudeau or Jim Bradley or Glen Murray or Chris Bittle about any of this? These Liberal clowns propagate the climate-change lie every day they are in office. 
      And, far be it for any reporter in Canada to ask Canada's Senior Cagey Climatologist (...or is he a Cagey Climatalarmogist...!?!) David Phillips for his comments on the phony basis of the Paris climate accords and Canada's labyrinth of cap and trade schemes  - what's that got to do with climate change - right?! 


Let's look back at what I wrote earlier in this post, in Chapter 2:

    "In the Feb. 22, 2017 Niagara Falls Review and the St.Catharines Standard, Ray Spiteri again 'interviewed' Cagey, and again, Spiteri did not bother to ask David Phillips if what Phillips was saying was the direct result of man-made (AGW) climate-change. 
   The GreenFear-mongering insinuation that this was all due to 'climate change', was palpably present in Spiteri's piece, as Cagey Dave told Spiteri how 
“These records go back to 1901. It’s hard to break a record when you’ve got over 100 years of records. I think (Thursday) could very well be (a record), especially if we get a little bit more sun than the fog that we’ve seen in some parts of southern Ontario.”
     Phillips said he doesn’t recall such a sustained stretch of warm weather in February such as this year.
      “I don’t think there’s been a warmer week in February. 
What’s so interesting about this heat wave in February is that it is so persistent. You often will get one or two days where spring has arrived, and then you’re back into the cold winter weather. This has gone on. It went from (last) Saturday to this coming) Saturday"
      Spiteri just obediently stenographed whatever Cagey said, without question.              Spiteri could have asked: 
    'David, regarding this '100-yr-old record breaking February temperature' which you just mentioned, is this definitive evidence of man made climate change, the kind that Liberals such as Justin Trudeau and Jim Bradley say it is? 
David, you make all this innuendo about hundred year records being broken, but as Canada's Senior Climatologist, what do these records have to do with AGW climate change?
David, when you say to me “I don’t think there’s been a warmer week in February",are you specifically referring to the period from 1901 to Feb. 2017? Could there have been a warmer February week anytime earlier, say, oh... in the last 10,000 years? And, why is it that you "don't think there's been a warmer week in February" - don't you know these things for sure, before you say them?
Either it has been 'the warmest February week since 1901', or it hasn't - why allude to this, if you don't know? Do you want me to sensationalize the story, and spike it with GreenFear?'

       Sadly, Spiteri sold himself out as a journalist and simply danced the tired old Cagey Two Step Tango with David Phillips. Spiteri did NOT ask any questions, just lapped up David Phillips' sputum and regurgitated it in the St. Catharines Standard and in the Review.'


      Spiteri's Tango With Cagey (...as mentioned in Chapter 12 above) appeared on Feb.22, 2017,  so it was amusing to see that only a week later (on Mar.1, 2017) Cagey was involved in yet another typical GreenFear-laced piece, where he was basically spouting similar things as he had spouted to Spiteri - but in this case, the reporter actually did try to ask if all this warmth in Feb.2017 was climate change. This is what Spiteri and literally hundreds of previous Canadian reporters failed to do. 

     So who was this supposedly 'heroic' reporter? It was Kate McGillivray, who reported this being asked in her CBC article (Mar.1, 2017): (Yes, this was in the CBC!! But, looking at the story in the link, it isn't even clear if McGillivray actually interviewed Cagey herself, or, was she reporting a second-hand story here, based on some other interviewer on Metro Morning... was it her or someone else doing the interview?? I am taking it here that McGillivray was Cagey's interviewer. If it was someone else, than the same comments apply to whoever it was that actually did this Cagey interview.)

"So long, normal weather: Toronto just had the warmest February on record

Expect the unexpected and get used to temperature swings, says climatologist Dave Phillips

 It's official — Toronto just lived through the warmest February in at least 80 years, says Dave Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada.
"It also had the warmest February temperature ever, up to 17.7 C on the 23rd," which broke records going back to the 1840s, he told CBC Radio's Metro Morning.
The month didn't start off this way.
""We had temperatures at -12 C," said Phillips. "We had a month's worth of snow in the first ten days."
After that, the jet stream, a narrow band of strong wind, moved "almost into a summer position, well north of us in Northern Ontario. It allowed the warm air to just flood into Southern Ontario," he said.
All that warm air led to 12 days in a row with melting record temperatures. "So clearly, the look and the feel of winter disappeared in February," Phillips said.

Enjoying the weather, worrying about the climate

So are February's unseasonably warm temperatures a sure sign of climate change?
"I'm reluctant to always go there," said Phillips.
He said that it's the wild swings over the last few years, the absence of "normal weather," that is more of a tip-off.
"We had the coldest February on record two winters ago, here we have the warmest. That back-and-forth, up-and-down is more a mark that something is happening to our climate," he said.
"We say, 'Enjoy the weather but be concerned about the climate.'"
     Amazing: some CBC reporter/interviewer asks Canada's Cagey Climatologist whether the Feb. warm weather is a sure sign of climate change, and Cagey cagily answers that he is "reluctant to always go there"!! 


He ominously rattles off fearsome temperature records being broken, citing scary "wild swings", declaring that this all due to the absence of "normal weather".  That fearmongering is meant to be taken, unquestioningly, at face value - the cagey unspoken insinuation is prepared and provided for us to jump to a conflated conclusion that this must therefore all be due to man-made climate change. The GreenFear link is pre-engineered for our unquestioning consumption, prepared by both Cagey and the CBC, without any evidence that anything here is linked to AGW. The illusion and the insinuation and the scary spin is meant to confuse, and to suggest that the only possible cause is AGW.
     There is an interesting interplay here, in this slick GreenFear piece, but make no mistake about it: this is still CBC fake news GreenFear propaganda, even though Kate McGillivray (or whoever the mystery interviewer was) tepidly did "go there" with Cagey. 

(...and compare Cagey's caginess in NOT "going there" about climate change with the CBC, to the fact  that Cagey had gone there, when he held a lecture at the Nottawasaga Conservation Valley Authority on Jan.30, 2017 claiming that "climate change is the here and now" - - - yet, what does that even mean? !? It's simply cagey innuendo! That's not scientific terminology: that's just Cagey's homey blatant PR sloganeering rhetoric. 
The CBC (in McGillivray's Mar. 1, 2017 story) could have done their homework and actually asked Cagey to comment on his previous comments about climate change, which he's made to others (...such as those he made to the NCVA, just a month earlier, on Jan.30, 2017)
I mean, we all know that's EXACTLY what the CBC would have done, if it was some conservative politician they were trying to slime - the CBC  interviewer/attacker and the CBC research department would have had everything the target had previously said - - but, oh well, with Cagey, they just let it slide...) 

    Keep in mind that McGillivray's piece (and the Metro Morning piece, if it was by someone other than McGillivray)  is nevertheless an orchestrated CBC event spun, processed, and presented to further the GreenFear-mongering agenda, scary headlines, innuendo, and all.     The focus was on fanning climate fear, and definitely not on scrutinizing why David Phillips cannot "go there" and provide evidence of AGW. 
    The CBC's editors well know how to orchestrate the Cagey Tango, telling half the story (...actually way less than half of the story; more like lying by omission) -- most of the real story is what the CBC left out, such as specifically providing interviews from any GreenFear-bloviating Canadian Liberal, dipper, or greenie, asking them if the weather events which Cagey talks about (...but which he cagily refuses to confirm as AGW!!!!) are in fact evidence of climate change.
    Climatalarmists such as Jim Bradley, Justin Trudeau, Glen Murray, and Elizabeth May peddle the GreenFear-lie every day the exhale carbon dioxide. Where's their reaction to Canada's Senior Climatologist coyly demurring to confirm 'evidence' of AGW - the AGW upon which they base their GreenFear Bolshevik policies upon??
  Where's the leftists' phony "science is being  suppressed" meme now, when Canada's Senior Climatologist muzzles himself  (...under J-Turd's Liberal watch, no less..!) and refuses "to go there"; to publicly state to the aroused and panting press that the weather events he reports are evidence of AGW?!!
   The CBC has spent untold millions of tax dollars over the years, helping peddle the GreenFear lie that man has created the climate - and the CBC will continue to do so, regardless of what Cagey said in that Mar 1 CBC report! They will continue to peddle GreenFear, and will make sure that Cagey's comments aren't mentioned - they {...ahem... not 'Harper'...} will suppress what Cagey said. 
(...The CBC, predictably, did exactly that, continuing their GreenFear-laced climate fascism only 4 days after Kate McGillivray's report, where NO MENTION at all was made of Cagey Dave's inability to show evidence of "climate change" -  see Chapter 15 further below...) 
They will muzzle Cagey's comments. 
They will continue to peddle the phony "it's all settled" meme.
They will censor their future GreenFear-mongering to purposefully not mention David Phillips' climate skepticism, which he demonstrated in McGillivray's CBC report on Mar.1, 2017.
     So where's the backlash when Canada's Senior Climatologist REFUSES to agree with the CBC narrative? Where are the instant mass denunciations of Cagey as a 'Denier', as an 'Uncle Tom Of Science', as a 'Traitor To The Planet'... .... ...?
    Funny eh?
For years, the left happily chortled and regurgitated the meme that scientists such as Good Ole Cagey were somehow "muzzled" when it came to climate change. Cagey was treated as some kind of a 'subversive' hero, as some kind of martyr, cleverly sending us coded messages of climate change while he was being 'suppressed', which the left hungrily ate up.
Everything Cagey said - even still here, in McGillivray's own Mar.1, 2017 article! - was still spun to reflect the gospel of AGW. 
The CBC's McGillivray had a chance in her report to examine, but she completely ignored, the 'suppression' meme (...a meme which her own CBC had happily peddled). 
    When Cagey answered that he was "reluctant to always go there" reporter McGillivray could have explored this, to ask:
   'Why? Why is David Phillips 'reluctant to go there'?? Go 'where', exactly? Why can't he prove climate change, when we're all told that the 'science is settled'?? Is he being suppressed by anyone? Is someone preventing Phillips from linking the warm Feb 2017 weather as being evidence of man made climate change? If records are being broken, as Phillips is saying, then why can't he admit that it is evidence of climate change?' 
    McGillivray and her CBC editors cleverly did NOT bring up the point that David Phillips could not give them their desired 'climate change is real' money shot! 
   They did not bring up the point that, when Phillips didn't deliver the 'climate-change evidence' in the past, it was at that time all blamed on the meme that Phillips was 'muzzled by Harper'.  {Y'see how the propaganda works..?!
  Yet - now that Turdo is in power...  and now that Cagey works at Turdo's frickin' phony 'Ministry of Climate Change'... and now that Cagey is (supposedly) un-muzzled, and is no longer "suppressed"...  the CBC IGNORES analyzing this incongruous set of circumstances... as well as their own role in propagating it!
Y'see the CBC's self-serving spin now?! 
The old narrative was that scientists such as Cagey were only 'muzzled by Harper'; yet when Cagey refuses to confirm AGW now, no link is being made to Trudeau!! Aren't dem CBC commies clever, eh?!
     Where's the bombastic vitriol to Cagey's refusal, from the man-made climate-change hoaxters such as Jim Bradley or Justin Trudeau, or Catherine McKenna, or Kathleen Wynne...? 
    In 2016, Jim Bradley's Ontario Liberals, practicing Newspeak, renamed their Environment Ministry to become the  "Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change". In 2015, the Turdo federal Liberals renamed Environment Canada (where Cagey peddles his cagey climate business) to the "Ministry of Environment and Climate Change".
Turdo stated that "climate change is a fact" - yet, Canada's Senior Climatologist David Phillips {who works at Turdo's Ministry of Climate Change...!!!} CANNOT or WILL NOT 'go there' to actually confirm this "fact"!!
    And furthermore - the CBC refused to follow up on the discrepancy - and this is a glaring discrepancy, going to the heart of the AGW man-made climate-change change issue. 
   Were McGillivray nor any other CBC hack prepared with any follow-up questions?
The usual narrative from the AGW GreenFear-pushing warmists includes a litany of attacks on anyone who dares to even profess climate change skepticism -  they are immediately slapped down, tarred and feathered as "deniers". We all know and have all  seen this kind of typically reflexive leftist trope. The disgusting David Suzuki demonized 'deniers' and wanted them put in jail.
     Strangely, Cagey is allowed to remain in his conveniently fuzzy, grey, slippery, shifty, amorphous, nebulous climate change zone, UNABLE to confirm to the CBC that what he's saying is (or isn't) climate change.
McGillivray could have asked (...but didn't) in her article:
    'Hey David - you work at the freakin' Ministry of Climate Change - - why can't you do us a solid and confirm once and for all that climate-change - specifically AGW man-made climate change - is real, for f@!* sake??? C'mon, David - Turdo pays yer wages; why don't you confirm that man-made climate-change is real??? What's stoppin' ya from agreeing with Suzuki and Stephane Dion??? '
    McGillivray's CBC story is such a Green-Fear laden piece of crap, that the narrative was purposefully shifted NOT to trumpet a headline that more accurately reflects the real issue:
 "Canada's Senior Climatologist David Phillips refuses to confirm climate change" should have been the actual headline, as THAT was the real story.
(Maybe someone should re-interview Cagey's pal Good Ole Phil Chadwick, for his reaction to Cagey again refusing to provide evidence of AGW - even though Cagey isn't being suppressed by anyone...!)
    McGillivray's story was spun to emphasize the GreenFear angle. McGillivray could have explored (...but didn't) the long arc of  the climate change lie. McGillivray could spend several years documenting all the past hysterical climate-change GreenFear-mongering perpetrated by HER OWN CBC colleagues. But she won't.
She didn't even ask Cagey about his citations, such as 80 year old records apparently being broken, dating back to the 1840's. Even that glib math fails to prompt McGillivray . {1840 to 2017 is 80 years?? Who knew?} McGillivray just lets this stuff slide!! 
When Cagey was spouting his weather record citations to Spiteri - only one week ago!!!!!! - he was claiming that hundred year old records were being broken, going back (supposedly) to 1901. Yet in Toronto, Cagey tells McGillivray 'records' were being 'broken going back to the 1840's'. This is the kind of slippery "science" that constitutes evidence of AGW? Sad.


...Moving right along, right on the tail of Cagey's Mar.1, 2017 refusal to confirm AGW to the CBC's McGillivray, let's look at what the GreenFear-hoax-pushers were peddling at the Toronto Star, with Olivia Ward's Mar.3, 2017 GreenFear-propaganda piece - published just 2 days after Canada's Senior Climatologist refused to provide or confirm any evidence of man-made climate change to the CBC...! 
    Funny, somehow Ward and the entire Toronto Star editorial staff conveniently weren't aware of David Phillips' studied silence on climate change...! Didn't they know about David Phillips's episode with the CBC's McGillivray two days earlier?? 
    Propagandists, such as the Star's Olivia Ward, continue their biased, GreenFear-mongering campaign non-stop (...giddily reporting oops propagandizing, without question, how ""All life on earth now depends on maintaining efforts in environmental and related sciences,” says an open letter from scientists calling on Canada to protect science under threat from Trump" !!! (haha), thereby again trotting out the 'scientists are being muzzled' meme - (now blaming Trump) while David Phillips' (unmuzzled!) comments from 2 days ago - in Turdopian Canada - are purposefully buried and forgotten - as if they never happened. 
   Pure propaganda, hot'n'steamy from TorStar's fake news factory!

   The ever-clever Toronto Star even published Fake News about fake news (even though the Star's own editors jumped hoops to pretend that they weren't peddling fake news)  as was pathetically demonstrated in Kathy English's classic fake-news-worthy piece of Atkinson-principled-propaganda seen in the Toronto Star, Feb.17, 2017. 
   It's a sick spiral of cognitive impairment with these deluded Green Bolsheviks.
   Here we see the Star lying about their role in peddling fake news, when they have been portraying a biased position (a political position, not a scientific position; ie peddling the hoax that 'the science is settled', and trumpeting political propaganda disguised as 'proof' of AGW'. Kathy English ranks up there with Goebbels in the propaganda department. 

    (... and despite their phony claims, FaceBook / Google aren't stopping the peddling of the kind of GreenFear which the Star peddles...! Google News happily publishes 'climate change is man made' science fiction on a daily basis, disguising these fake stories as "news" classed under 'science', instead of where they belong - in a hybrid 'science fiction' fake news category, where fake-science morphs into real political-propaganda. You know: the same pseudo-science that Ontario Liberals, such as Jim Bradley, peddle and practice.)

   You have to wonder if the Star's Olivia Ward (in her Mar.3, 2017 Fake News article) had even read her own Toronto Star colleague Kathy English's Feb.17, 2017 fake story on fake news?!?
(Ward's article came out less than 3 weeks after English's, so Ward ought to be aware of it, it's not ancient history!)
    Ward would have (or should have!) seen her Star colleague English's mighty attempt to provide her slanted Atkinsonian definition of Fake News, to justify how the Star cannot possibly be publishing phony articles!!
English writes:
"So, what is fake news?
To answer that accurately, we must look to Craig Silverman the Canadian journalist who first wrote about the phenomena of fake news for BuzzFeed News in November. Silverman, who has achieved global recognition for this important work, exposed the reality of fraudulent news, deliberately created and shared, largely on Facebook, to gain advertising dollars. Much of what he discovered was pro-Trump fake news that cast his opponent, Hillary Clinton, in a negative light with clearly false information.
Silverman’s reporting provided a fascinating look into the digital media universe and the ease with which wholly made-up “news” could be spread – and seemingly, believed. This “ecosystem” of fabricated information presented as serious news continues to be a significant concern in discerning the credibility of news sources..."
    It's quite sickening to see English use Silverman's views as justification that the Toronto Star is not a fake news peddler, when what he writes definitely would include the Star's own peddling of its slanted brand of fake news for clicks and for subscriptions!! Did Silverman ever examine the anti-Trump "news" spread by Tor Star?!?
    The Star editorializes its news, placing facts and events into their branded Atkinsonian slanted narrative. News and opinion and political propaganda meld, morph, and intertwine in various degrees from story to story; editorial stances permeate what should be news stories; news stories are fabricated to support editorial positions - - - but, this is nothing new, nor exclusive just to TorStar - so why the impassioned phony pretense by English that somehow the Star is as pure as the (man-made) snow?! 
    English is disingenuous to say the least, when, in an article about fake news, she just censors the starting point, that the Star is an inherently biased, Atkinsonian endeavor, that  it is a fake 'fair' and fake 'balanced' organization; in other words, that there is no 'fairness' or 'balance' to be expected. 
We expect leftist garbage from the Toronto Star - that is their inherent essence. 
English can't bring herself to acknowledge how the Star's basic organizational tenet infects and seeps into everything they do. There is an ideological political agenda at the Star, and stories are editorially engineered, spun and processed to reflect their biased Atkinsonian narrative.

(The Toronto Star frequently and eagerly prints  phony 'news' about Donald Trump ...like Eric Tucker's unsubstantiated AP story, published by Tor Star on May 15, 2017 about Trump asking Comey for loyalty...! - yet Kathy English continues to prattle on about how the Toronto Star doesn't make things up! 
   Political opinion is substituted for and presented as "news" - it's a massive bait and switch, where "sources" are secret, and where opinion - salted with insinuation and innuendo - morphs into 'news'. The Star's role is to massage and amplify their politicized brand of 'the news'. English knowingly peddles a fake narrative - as if her organization does NOT peddle biased, processed political opinion, disguised as 'straight facts'!!! 
(Is the irony lost on her, that the article is ostensibly about fake news?!  Or is she so deeply embedded in 'principled' Atkinsonian assholery that she cannot see the irony?! That is tragic. Or, is it that she does see the irony, does see her own disconnect, does see her own discrepancy and hypocrisy - and yet, coldly doesn't give a shit, and peddles the lie anyway?? That's fanaticism.)  
   All we have to do is look at Olivia Ward's fawningly fakey article (appearing only 3 weeks after English's) to see how fake English's denials of the Star's propensity for fakeness are!!! 
They keep on doing it, while denying it - is this a genetic compulsion, that they just can't help it; that they can only function in their own bias, in their own comfortable paradigms?
   English would like us all believe in her own partisan alt-left hallucination, that fake news can ONLY come from the scary right, not from socialists. Now, let's get back to reality and continue to document the GreenFear climate change lies peddled by the 'non-biased' hahaha Toronto Star over the years.
   Kathy English can help demonstrate how full of umm ...non-fake news the Toronto Star is, by getting her Star colleague Olivia Ward to contact David Phillips (Canada's Senior Climatologist) to get his reaction to the GreenFear crap-laden story which Ward wrote on Mar.3, 2017. Why was Phillips omitted from Ward's own story?
   Kathy English claims that the Toronto Star would never deliberately publish false information: I have yet to see any validity in any of the “fake news” charges lobbed our way. While it should go without saying, I think it’s safe to say, the Toronto Star is not in the business of fake news. While this news organization’s work does sometimes fall short of its own journalistic standards, to suggest that the Star would deliberately publish false information is wrong. We don’t make stuff up.
And, that’s a fact."
So here we are at the heart of the issue: the Star does make things up, but doesn't see it that way. They manufacture stories embedded with their corporatist Atkinsonian narrative. English slyly hazes over and conflates the Star's rare 'straight, factual news reports' with the Star's much more common 'newspinion' pieces, where biased Star reporter/propagandists clearly push a political agenda; where the headlines are consistently spiked, biased, or deceptive; where other related opinions and contexts are conveniently and deliberately edited (censored) to further the biased Atkinsonian narrative. 
{This was clearly demonstrated (as was documented in Chapter 3) by Amy Dempsey's GreenStink in the Jan.17, 2017 Toronto Star - a month before Kathy English's fakey defense of TorStar fake news!!} 
Kathy English claims "we don't make stuff up", but the Star's Atkinsonian narrative belies that phony claim. 
Amy Dempsey's GreenStink belies English's claim: and let's remember that Dempsey wrote her Star story a month before English's phony apologist piece was published. 
Then, just 3 weeks after English's piece was published, the same Star garbage appeared with Olivia Ward's GreenStink-laden story, where strangely, Environment Canada's Senior Climatologist (...who coyly would not confirm climate change 2 days earlier on the CBC!) was NOT interviewed.  The Star purposefully spins, censors and omits - yet, hey, they don't make stuff up! They just want you to believe their manufactured version!
You'd think that of all the people in Canada, Ole Cagey Dave would have had something relevant to say to Olivia Ward about 'muzzling scientists' and about 'global warming/climate change'!!!
So why did the Toronto Star NOT ASK Phillips to comment on those very issues?!
Look, for Gaia's sake: the Toronto Star just muzzled David Phillips, while claiming they don't do fake news! Trump didn't do that: the Toronto Star did.
It's amazing. The Star consistently prints climate change stories as "news", which are based on the AGW GreenFear hoax. 
What English and Toronto Star are doing here, is so insidious, it really is beyond 'lying', or 'fake news', it's Orwellian in scope. 

    Following Kate McGillivray's Mar. 1, 2017 CBC article (detailed in Chapter 13 above) where Environment Canada's Senior Climatologist refused to link his weather reports as evidence of climate change, the CBC ran another story 3 days later (written by Maryse Zeidler,  Mar.5, 2017) with this typically GreenFearsome fascist headline" "20 years ago, B.C. scientists warned of provincial impact of climate change
'Being able to talk about climate change outside of the science world, that continues to be a real challenge'".
     The CBC's Zeidler trots out Stewart Cohen, referred to as a "senior climate change researcher with Environment Canada", yet Zeidler suppresses any mention of Environment Canada's David Phillips in her story, and doesn't bother to ask Cohen to comment on EC's Senior Climatologist Phillips refusing to link weather to "climate change"..! The CBC's GreenGoebbels certainly work at a feverish pace to peddle their propaganda. Has Cagey already been greenwashed out of favour by the CBC's climate fascists?? Wow. (ya better repent now Cagey...)
    Who is preventing anyone from "being able to talk about climate change", as the headline on Zeidler's story ominously suggests??! (...as if the media themselves aren't the ones who immediately attack and shame anyone who challenges the 'it's all settled' hoax...)

    Zeidler never bothers to ask her subjects about that claim;  the dark insinuation is just left to hang there without question. It's enough for the CBC just to print the claim, without delving into messy details which spoil the overall effect of the desired GreenFear narrative. That's not reporting; it's biased, scripted stenography - it's propaganda.

    Here's the same old 'science is being suppressed' meme being slickly, subtlety - subliminally - peddled, without substance. We are just supposed to "know" that these poor old scientists are being somehow suppressed... by someone.... y'see...

    Not once did the CBC's Zeidler bother to actually provide, nor ask for, any evidence of man made climate change - her starting off point, as we see, takes for granted that 'the science of man made climate is settled' - therefore, all the subsequent propaganda flows from that faulty premise.
     How can the CBC be peddling 'fake climate news', eh?! Well, if they do not question the premise, and 'believe' it to be 'real', and continuously peddle their stories under that supposition, to them it's all 'real' and cannot be fake. 
   After all, no TorStar or CBC reporter has been threatened to be jailed by David Suzuki, so, really, how fakey can the their science-fictiony false global warming stories possibly be!?! Yes, there is some kind of perverted, demented 'logic' in the Green Bolshevik mind - ya can't blame us: we think/we believe/we trust/we don't even ask if  it's real - - - it can't be fake if we thought it was real, y'see? We was just tellin'  ya, what our (selective) impressions were, of what we were (selectively) told by the (selected) people who fit our (selective) narrative!! 
    There is no need for CBC or TorStar reporters to  actually question anyone about the AGW premise; their task is to propagate AGW and amplify it, as if it was real
     And if it means censoring David Phillips - while still claiming science is being censored {!!!} well, so be it - climate fascism MUST march on at all costs.
    It's as if what David Phillips had said just 3 days earlier...
 (...to the CBC's McGillivray on Mar.1, 2017 {see Chapter 13} - which was not what the CBC had actually wanted nor expected him to say...)
... wasn't relevant to Zeidler's report!!
 Is Zeidler's report the first act of the shaming of David Phillips, who sinned and refused to bow to the GreenFear-peddlers' demands??
     Zeidler didn't bother to ask Stewart Cohen to provide all the data from Environment Canada, which 'proves' AGW. 
   Zeidler could have asked for that, and could have listed all the citations which Cohen and Environment Canada have, which 'prove' AGW. 
But this typical CBC propagandist, disguised as a 'reporter', DID NOT do so, as the purpose of this CBC story was about creating a haze of GreenFear, not about reporting facts.
     Zeidler purposefully didn't ask Cohen, to comment on his Environment Canada colleague David Phillips' refusal - made just 3 days earlier - to link weather to AGW. Why was that avenue not followed - what, the CBC in British Columbia doesn't know what Mother Corp. is peddling elsewhere across the nation??
    I mean, Great Gaia's Ghost: Zeidler 's assignment was to peddle an illusion for us to believe that somehow in BC, they've had 'evidence of AGW'  for 20 years doncha know - or so the narrative leads us to believe - yet, no actual AGW evidence was  provided by anyone in Zeidler's report, from 20 years ago, or from now - of course, unless speculation is considered 'evidence'!
Zeidler could have easily even asked Ontario's Liberal Godfather Of GreenFear himself, Jim Bradley, about the existence of AGW evidence - - -Bradley has secretly had it, for some 30 years - maybe more, who knows..!)
  Why didn't Zeidler interview Bradley and ask him all about his 'decades' worth of 'AGW evidence' (which he's never revealed) and compare it to all the 'evidence of AGW' which we are led to believe in her report that Environment Canada has, and which (apparently!) everyone in B.C. knew about 20 years ago???
    Zeidler was more than happy in her one-sided story to peddle Cohen's and "climate scientist" Trevor Murdock's views " ...Despite those advancements, both researchers say the biggest challenge on the climate change front has been trying to change public perception. 
Cohen says it's frustrating to see people who still don't believe climate change is happening, or that greenhouse gas emissions have anything to do with it.
"Being able to talk about climate change outside of the science world, that continues to be a real challenge," he said.
"We need to figure out how to do that better and how to do that more continuously too."
    As expected from the CBC, Zeidler obligingly did NOTHING to question them.
    If anything, we see that the CBC happily does "continuously" peddle GreenFear (which is exactly what Cohen wants) as if Zeidler was not sent by the CBC to do just that!!!

    Can't the "journalist" Zeidler see her own role aiding and abetting the propaganda she's peddling?

    She WAS there, paid by the CBC, to peddle one side of the (false AGW) story, and she was there to "change public perception" to accept the AGW hoax (and therefore, to accept AGW-premised political policies). The entire episode is a fabricated piece of self-serving, echo-chamber propaganda.
   If Zeidler had acted as an independently-minded actual journalist, rather than a GreenFear groupie, she could have said to Cohen: 
   'What the f*ck, man: I am here, and the CBC is giving you a soapbox to peddle your views - more than they give any other views - so don't f*cking patronize me, ok? 
  Now, let's get to all that AGW 'evidence' you say you have from Environment Canada, which supposedly supports Catherine McKenna's Mar.9, 2017 "Climate  change is clear. It's man made" lie, and which supports Prime Minister Turdo's phony claim that "climate change is real"... ... ...'

But, no, Zeidler wasn't there as an impartial reporter; she was there as a believer and as a willing participant in the GreenFear propaganda-peddling effort. Zeidler was there to do the typical boiler-plate Cagey-style tango (...the same old GreenFear tango, but without Cagey - who's been relegated to the Climate Change doghouse for the time being...)
   Zeidler writes a story propagandizing and peddling GreenFear, interviewing her selected (and decidedly selective) subjects as if their views are somehow unknown or somehow being suppressed.... as if their kind of views HAD NEVER ALREADY BEEN CONTINUOUSLY PROPAGATED BY THE CBC ON A NATIONAL BASIS!!! 
   The disconnect, the self-serving loop of propaganda, is astounding. 
   This CBC reporter  GreenFear-monger had a chance to write a story examining the 'scientific evidence of AGW' and how this 'evidence' - politically portrayed as "being settled" - manifests in Canadian politics. Who stopped her from doing that?!? Instead, Zeidler earned her CBC paycheque by spinning GreenFear while never actually addressing the underlying premise of AGW. Great job.


Speaking of the 'political manifestation of climate-change', on Apr. 29, 2017 we saw AGW-infected Niagara politicians such as Carlos Garcia and St.Catharines mayor Walter Sendzik immediately link spring flooding at Lakeside Park with climate change - with no AGW evidence provided, and with no questions asked by reporter Allan Benner!
 These two GreenFear-mongering politicians "agreed that climate change is to blame for the problems.
“When someone says, ‘What does climate change look like, and what does it mean to a city like St. Catharines?’ This is what it means,” Sendzik said. “It means a higher rate of erosion on our shoreline, it means flooding in areas like Port Dalhousie and Lakeside Park, and it impacts the yacht club.”

So: what does GreenFear propaganda look like?! Look no further than Benner's biased 'report' about 2 smug local clowns peddling Al Gore's and Jim Bradley's climate-change-paranoia. 
You'd think by reading this St.Catharines Standard crap, that the water levels in the Great Lakes watershed had never deviated in the last... oh... thousand years! ( Or, even since Jim Bradley was first elected!)  There has never been any rate of erosion in the Great Lakes - until this week!! Apparently, prior to April of 2017, the entire Great Lakes ecosystem was always in a comfortable stasis, where nothing ever changed !
The Standard plants a biased half-story without the context; keeping the GreenFear propaganda alive a little longer, rehashing the phony narrative whenever possible -  kudos all around for a great team effort of fake-newsmanship!
Report the AGW lie, don't question the AGW premise. Don't ask, don't tell, nudge-nudge wink-wink - that's how the media typically dances with Cagey, and those same jive moves are copied locally.

Compare mayor Sendzik's GreenFear-mongering on Apr.29th to this May 5 CBC story by Laurene Jardin  (headlined "St. Lawrence River could rise if N.Y. request to lower Lake Ontario is approved") reporting New York State Governor Cuomo's request to open up the dam at Cornwall to drain off more of Lake Ontario's water.
This is completely relevant to the issue  - yet, it's funny how Sendzik (the Agenda-21-infected mayor) never made any mention of any dam, nor its effect on the water levels in Port Dalhousie! The local yokels were left with the scary impression that this was all due to climate change. 
And reporter Allan Benner didn't bother to ask about that, either (...remember: the point is to play up the false impression of AGW, not to question its false premise... to propagate the agenda by spiking the appearance over the substance.)
Jardin wrote:
"Jean Aubry-Morin, a Canadian member of the International Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Board, said it's a balancing act... 
 Aubry-Morin said that the board would take current water levels in Quebec into consideration before adding any water into the St. Lawrence.  
Because of the snow melt and spring showers, the international board redistributes water into the appropriate body of water every year.
What's abnormal about this year, Aubry-Morin says is the amount of precipitation the provinces have seen in the last six weeks.
"It's a one-in-20-year situation," he said".
Yet, mayor Sendzik and councilor Garcia acted as if they'd never heard of any kind of  'once  in a 20 yr situation' - to them, this was 'evidence' of drastic climate change (which probably in their minds, was also directly and personally caused by Donald Trump!)
No one in Benner's story mentioned the Cornwall dam's existence, let alone its purpose!
No one mentioned the dam's systemic effects, downstream and upstream, upon the Great Lakes-St.Lawrence watershed, and its effect locally, upon the beach at Lakeside Park!!! 
And Benner didn't bother to ask about any of this, either. 
It's interesting to note that in her story, CBC reporter Jardin did NOT make any of those expected, typical, obligatory, false-causation references to 'climate change'. That was an unexpected, refreshing move.

SO: now let's see what cagey ol' David Phillips saying about all this!!

Let's look at Stephen Smith's May 4, 2017 CBC story (headlined "Mix of 'rare events' led to rapid rise of floodwaters in Montreal's West Island, prof says"):
"David Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada, said another factor adding to the problem is the repeated occurrence of storm systems over the last five weeks that didn't just come and go, but stuck around for days.

"They haven't been hit and run," he said. "They've had more time to linger and spread more of their misery. Instead of one day of rain, we're seeing maybe two or three days of rain from the same system."
April had 19 rainy days in total, Phillips said, and many of those days saw heavy amounts of rainfall.

"It was not just a drizzle, an inconvenience — it was a gully washer, like half a month worth of rain in one day," he said."

There goes Cagey again, with his oft-repeated, very scientific "gully-washer" rhetoric...
It's funny how the CBC reporter Stephen Smith - when he had the chance  to do so - DID NOT BOTHER TO ASK David Phillips if the flooding along the Great Lakes confirms Al Gore's Inconvenient Truths about Climate Change.

Isn't THAT what every leftist infected with AGW wants to know?!? 
They want confirmation from Environment Canada's TOP CLIMATOLOGIST that this flooding is caused by AGW!
They want to know that the Trudeau government's "it's real, it's all settled" climate change policy is based on science.

When David Phillips blurted to reporter Stephen Smith that "It was not just a drizzle, an inconvenience — it was a gully washer, like half a month worth of rain in one day", why didn't reporter Smith immediately ask if this gully-washer of rain was an example of 'climate change'??

Why ignore the obvious follow-up question??
Why didn't the CBC reporter Smith simply ASK Canada's Senior climatologist to directly confirm that all this flooding is due to AGW?

Isn't that a simple, straight-forward question for a reporter, after he's just been told by Canada's Senior Climatologist that a half-month's worth of rain fell in one day??

Wouldn't a reporter reasonably ask, following-up on Phillips' own gully-washing rhetoric: 'Mr. Phillips, you cite lots of rainfall - a half-month's worth of rain in one day... is that an example of man made climate change, Mr. Phillips?'

Why didn't the CBC reporter Smith follow-up on what Phillips said?

Even small town mayors are apparently convinced it's all due to climate change - so what is preventing BOTH Canada's top climatologist, and Canada's national broadcaster, from publicly providing what should be such a straightforward answer, to such a straightforward question??
Trudeau's Liberals (and those hacks never lie..) have told us that 'climate change is real'; so why does the CBC shirk from asking Environment Canada about confirming 'climate change'??

What prevented the CBC's Stephen Smith from asking David Phillips this question?

Let's ask (... yes.... again... ...):
- was David Phillips "muzzled" by anyone?!
- did anyone prevent or suppress David Phillips from answering such a  question?!
- Is it beneath the dignity of David Phillips to be asked such a direct question?!
- did any one "muzzle" Stephen Smith (or any other CBC reporter, for that matter?!)
- did anyone prevent or suppress reporter Smith (or any other CBC reporter) from asking David Phillips to confirm that the flooding IS INDEED the direct result of AGW?!
-  Is it beneath the dignity of any CBC reporter to directly ask Philips such a question?!?


  In  this May 9, 2017 CBC story by Paul Cote  we again see Canada's Senior Climatologist David Phillips using his very scientific terms such as  "crap-shoot" to describe the weather.

{Great Gaia's Ghost: here we have Canada's Senior Climatologist spouting scientific jargon such as 'crap shoot' to conflate his weather/climate stances - yet, Canada's leftist press DARES NOT ask Liberal dolt Justin Turdo or Canada's Climate Barbie, Catherine McKenna, how it is, that the Liberals climate change policies are based on "crap-shoot" prognostications?!
Yep: that narrative is forbidden.
Better not to link Cagey to the Liberals' Agenda 21 plans...}

The CBC reporter Cote DID NOT BOTHER to ask climatologists Phillips, nor Ian Black (...described as "CBC's Ottawa climatologist"!! Wow: lookit that; is there a tax-payer-funded in-house CBC climatologist in every Canadian city??! Nice gig - no bias there, eh..?!) whether the weather that they are commenting on is due to man made climate change.
Cote DID make sure to actually use the words "climate change" in his story - because, well, Phillips works for the phonily-named ministry of "Environment And Climate Change Canada" - so, the subliminal hint in the story is there:  'gosh, it must be man made climate change, because that's the name of the place Cagey works for'!! 

Cagey David might as well be working for "Wild-Card Dave's Emporium of Gully-Washing, Crap-Shooting Climatology", because David is strangely unable to provide Canadians with any evidence of man made climate change. (...How about that, eh, Phil Chadwick?! {see Chapter 3} Who's 'suppressing' David Phillips now, eh Phil?? What are "David's circumstances" now, Phil?!)

The CBC reporter Cote didn't bother asking David Phillips if all the "historically high water levels along the Ottawa River" (where Turdo's Liberals have now called in the ARMY to assist, no less) are a direct result of AGW.
Given these circumstances, why did reporter Cote refuse to ask Phillips the obvious question? 
Is it not relevant to the situation?!! For years, the CBC has shilled the climate change hoax - why shirk now from attributing direct examples of it? Don't climatologists Phillips and Black have the credentials to recognize and confirm direct evidence of  "climate change"?!

And CBC reporter Cote didn't even ask his own in-house-CBC-climatologist colleague Ian Black the same question.
One story, two climatologists - yet, NO QUESTIONS raised, nor any answers given, about 'climate change'!!

Why even bother with having both of these climatologists in the story anyway, if they will not touch the issue of climate change? 
Were they even asked about it by reporter Cote? 

Was anyone suppressing Paul Cote, or Ian Black, or David Phillips, stopping them from mentioning 'climate change'?! (... because we know that the tired old "science is being suppressed" meme would immediately have been trotted out if Harper was in power... leftists are now employing that phony meme in the US, against Trump, in order to deflect from Turdo in Canada - that's just how the propaganda is carried out)

But, now that Turdo, Canada's Shiny Pony, is in power, who is suppressing who?!
- Was Cote told by his CBC bosses NOT to ask Phillips or Black any inconvenient questions about climate change?
- Was the CBC suppressing, censoring, and shaping/editorializing climate science?
- Was CBC reporter Cote told by Phillips or by Black not to ask them about climate change??
- Or, did CBC reporter Cote just decide all on his own (...and his CBC editor just said nothing..!)  to not ask such questions, because he figured it just wouldn't look good for Phillips or Black to be put on the spot and be badgered to provide actual evidence for what 'everybody knows' is "settled" climate change?!

The above questions point to what a piece of CBC fake news this story really is.

What's a cozy nudge-nudge-wink-wink between two 'don't-ask-don't-tell' dance partners... we're all friends here, playin' for the same team, you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours...

Cote didn't tell us whether he did or didn't actually ask Phillips or Black about climate change; we don't know if they answered... all we know is that another great smelly piece of GreenFear propaganda was shat out by the CBC, where the inherent impression is left that this is all due to 'climate change', yet where, at the same time, no evidence to make such a link is actually presented. 
That's some fine propaganda!! We are all just supposed to "know" nudge-nudge-wink-wink, that everything in the article IS about climate change!! Through osmosis, innuendo, and conflation, we are supposed to "know", we are supposed to take for granted, that AGW is a given, infallible premise here - naturally, "all-settled" - which cannot be questioned.
So, why belabour the point by asking pesky questions, when we 'know' that it's 'all settled'??!?
It's apparently just not polite to ask!
WTF - really?? What a farce.

Cote once again demonstrates the Cagey Tango - it's f*cking ridiculous how hundreds of reporters do the exact same thing with Dave Phillips; they follow the same template, the same dance steps, to put on the same propaganda show.


We saw the Cagey Tango in action again, when good old Cagey Dave Phillips was trotted out for an appearance in one heck of a CTV News climate-fear story on CTV's 11 pm national news broadcast in Canada, Sept.1, 2017. (http://www.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1200532)
It was sad to watch Sandie Rinaldo having to host a pathetic story by John Vennavally-Rao; she starts her introduction by stating "it seems {...note: she said "seems"...} that there are more storms pounding the planet these days" and goes on to conflate monsoons in "India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan" and "intense flooding" in Nigeria to the storm Harvey in Texas.

This wham-bam set-up between Rinaldo and Rao is textbook propaganda: the entire segment was set up as being a 'question' by Rinaldo  {..."Is climate change the culprit?" Rinaldo plaintively asks before passing the GreenFear torch to Rao} but really, it was NOT an examination - it was a presentation of climate fear-mongering in the best GreenFear tradition: all bluster but no evidence of man made climate change.

Rao continued this GreenFear tag-team assault on CTV viewers by actually bringing in that Grotesque Guru of GreenFear Garbage AL GORE - - the climate con man - - and... wait for it... YES:  Canada's Cagey Climatologist was also thrown into this roiling cauldron of climate propaganda.
We see Cagey blathering on CTV that:
 "Climate change is the steroids of weather. It just makes it more powerful; it fuels it, it gives it more oomph."
Really: this is the explanation for climate change, from Canada's Senior Climatologist?!
And was Cagey talking specifically of man-made climate change, which gave this scientifically-precise "oomph" to Hurricane Harvey??!??!!!
Rao doesn't bother to clarify anything.

Most tellingly though, neither Rinaldo nor Rao bothered to specifically ask Cagey the direct question of linking man to the climate events which they had just indicated
They certainly had the chance, and they certainly could have asked Phillips: that would have been journalism.
But journalism was never the aim here, was it?!
Why didn't Sandie Rinaldo or John Vennavally-Rao actually ask David Phillips to confirm that anthrpogenic climate change caused hurricane Harvey? 
After all, isn't that really what CTV wanted Phillips to publicly say: that humans are to blame? So why not actually ask Canada's senior climatologist the question?
Who stopped Sandie Rinaldo or John Vennavally-Rao from asking David Phillips for proof of AGW?
Who 'suppressed' David Phillips this time?! It wasn't Harper, or Trump: it was CTV.

In reality, journalism wasn't on the agenda in this CTV Fake News effort: this was a pretense of journalism, a screed with its own agenda: purporting to be news, presented as news, shown on CTV's national nightly news broadcast. But it wasn't news: it was calculated propaganda at the highest level.

This CTV media fakery used Cagey as an image, as a prop, as filler, as a 'wink-wink' gesture to virtue-signal that - despite the segment's supposed 'questioning' of climate change - the default position of this Rinaldo-Rao segment is that the story is NOT questioning climate change!!! Masterful deception.

The impression meant to be conveyed was that 'climate change' WAS the cause of hurricane Harvey -  and that there was no question about this!!!

That is the typical GreenFear playbook: the default premise right off the bat is that "it's all settled" {...meaning there cannot be any questions...!} -  so, we can see that Rinaldo's portrayal of this segment as being a 'question', was a false, deceptive introduction - since there was NO actual examination of the underlying "it's all settled' premise!
{How could there be questions, when "it's all settled"?!?}

This CTV 'story' was fixed and slanted from the get-go, the aim being to propagate the "it's all settled" GreenFear narrative, not question it.
This is the same old GreenFear-pushing tactic used at the Toronto Star and CBC.
The aim was to create an impression that 'climate change' (specifically AGW, specifically, humans) caused Harvey.
These same kind of stories always pop up with the same scary false causations, allusions, and conflations, just as it was with Katrina. (...French Prime Minister Macron did exactly that - six just 6 days after this story - see Chapter 19!!)

Cagey was used as a background for Rao's GreenFear-mongering - - no specifics from Phillips were actually required (...nor asked!!!); the point was to build a scary story with scary statements and scary video clips. 
While Rao reports that "experts are reluctant to blame global warming for causing any single storm"...
(...which experts??? None were named! Was one of them David Phillips??? But, Rao just had Phillips on his segment, and Phillips didn't actually say on Rao's segment that he's "reluctant to blame global warming" ...!)
...Rao then goes on to try to show the exact opposite, conflating a link where there was none - it was all speculation and politicizing: the CTV corporate conglomerate even had Rao sliming President Donald Trump about climate-change - - this right after neither Rao himself, nor Al Gore, nor David Phillips, could actually provide evidence of AGW!
So "it's all settled" you see: we just can't provide the evidence.

This is the kind of fake news story that CTV pushes out these days - - and sadly Cagey David Phillips seems more than happy to oblige these kind of convoluted GreenFear propaganda efforts.
Note to CTV programmers and news directors: CTV should utilize this Rinaldo-Rao classic piece of GreenFear propaganda as an off-the shelf, ready-to-go-at-a-moment's-notice kind of instant GreenFear fake news video story, whenever any storm hits: all CTV has to do, is bleep out any reference to Harvey, and just insert the name of the new storm.
It's that easy!
This story is a classic boilerplate generic propaganda template, it is a goldmine which could save CTV a lot of money in the future by not having to write the same propaganda over and over for every storm: just recycle THIS classic - it's that good!
CTV could replay this same Rinaldo-Rao segment a week later - when Irma hits - and all they'd have to do, is insert the name 'Irma' -  no-one would know or care that this originally appeared as 'Harvey'!
This Rinaldo-Rao segment has great GreenFear-mongering value!!
CTV could replay this same versatile, all-purpose GreenFear segment for years, for every storm that will ever occur in the future!!


On Sept. 7, 2017, CTV reported  France's PM Macron spouting this doozie about Hurricane Irma:

"French President Emmanuel Macron says France is "grief-stricken" by the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, and he's calling for concerted efforts to tackle global warming and climate change to prevent similar future natural disasters.
Speaking Thursday during a visit to Greece, Macron said the planet's situation must be stabilized and that leaders must make take steps to combat global warming "so we can avoid such natural disasters in the future."
French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told Franc Info that at least eight people died and another 23 were injured when the monstrous Category 5 storm walloped the French Caribbean island territories of St. Martin and St. Barthelemy. That number is expected to rise."

Yes, Macron  is spouting the same GreenFear mantra that Canada's Liberal climate-change-pusher pusher Justin Turdo spouts.

Looks like Macron is channeling Al Gore and David Suzuki - - and politicizing a natural disaster to push some more GreenFear bolshevism. 
Macron - like Canadian PM Justin Turdo - believes that the "planet's situation must be stabilized"!
Not only is Macron calling to 'combat' global warming - he's ALSO going to 'tackle' climate-change'.
Apparently, y'see, 'global warming' and 'climate change' are now NOT the same thing anymore, in the GreenFearFascist playbook.
So Macron is now de-conflating 'climate-change', to make it appear that it is separate from 'global-warming! Such dichotomy, such inconsistency - coming from someone who demands stability and consistency from 'the Planet'....! 

Maybe Macron needs to be 'stabilized'...? 

Is this the new revised Agenda 21 narrative, which will be coming soon to Canada, in order to muddle the GreenFear alarmists' own lexicon?
In Canada, will any reporter ask Justin Turdo about Macron's comments, and ask Turdo to specifically endorse Macron's comments that hurricanes can be prevented, and to publicly link Hurricanes Irma and Harvey to man-made climate change, which can be reversed??! 
Will anyone ask Canada's Cagey Climatologist David Phillips to publicly confirm that Hurricanes Irma and Harvey were not natural, but  were 'man-made' - - and whether they could have been 'prevented'???

But, we know such questions will never be asked - it is just enough that the Agenda 21 puppet Macron obediently mouth the obligatory GreenFear memes, and that his GreenFear-infected colleagues around the world knowingly and approvingly nod in agreement - - yet, no specifics will be offered, because 'it's all settled'.

No one it seems will ask the GreenFear-infected Macron how he will "prevent" disasters that are {as he himself just said...!} inherently "natural"? 
Macron is saying here that he will prevent what is natural - and the gravity of this statement doesn't raise any eye-brows?
What Macron is saying here is in itself UNNATURAL, and inconsistent with reality.
And yet: this state of cognitive dissonance is considered quite normal to the GreenFear-infected masses.

Is Macron acknowledging that hurricanes are "natural disasters", or does he not understand the meaning of 'natural disaster'? How will Macron "prevent natural disasters"?! This GreenFearmonger is spouting nonsense.
Is he saying hurricanes are 'preventable' because they are caused by man (ie hurricanes are not natural!) and therefore, they can also be prevented by man?! oops: there's that cagey inconsistency again!! Conflate this, deconflate that, mix this term here with that term there, claim one thing here causes another thing over there... 

In Macron's mind, is all of nature man-made, and therefore 'preventable', as well?!?


GreenFear pushing climatalarmists keep pushing their unsubstantiated delusions, which conveniently conflate events such as Hurricane Sandy {...or Katrina, or Irma, or fill-in-the-blank...} with man-made climate change.
We saw this again at Rex Tillerson's Jan. 10, 2017 confirmation hearing, where some protester began shouting that her home was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy - the intended (though in reality unfounded) implication being that man (...personified in this protester's mind into being Tillerson himself..!) caused the climate to change, thereby causing Hurricane Sandy, thereby destroying her house. It's that simple, y'see.
This is the kind of delusional link, the kind of tenuous, conflated innuendo, that green bolsheviks - such as Jim Bradley's and Justin Trudeau's Liberals - love to encourage, love to see, love to foment.
They revel in seeing their pathetic work unfold in this kind of spectacle - this is is their kind of GreenFear at work. This green cancer is in Canada, and in the States.

We see it again, regarding Hurricane Irma.

Back on Jan 10 2017, Canada had to endure another visit from another deluded global-warming-infected stooge, this time, from the limousine lefty Hanoi Jane Fonda, the Viet-Cong-Commie-hugger who happily posed with the VC's on an anti-aircraft gun, the same guns which the NVA used to kill Americans. Jane Fonda made a fortune proudly peddling her anti-American "Fuck The Army" mantra. She went to North Vietnam to support the Communist enemy, to show the dumb folks back home her creds as a commie supporter.

Fonda flew (yes, flew - on a green helicopter powered by unicorn-farts --- no hypocrisy here, ever...) over Fort McMurray in Alberta, then immediately made a baseless link by announcing matter-of-factly (as a psychopath might) that the fire was "part of global warming"!!

So, there ya go, folks:y'see? It's "all settled"! More Fake News fodder for the Disciples of Al Gore and David Suzuki: climate-change caused the Fort McMurray fire, according to the GreenFear Gospel delusions of Jane Fonda!

Despite what Hanoi Jane spouts, Environment Canada's Senior Climatologist, David Phillips, has never stated that the Fort McMurray fire was caused by 'climate change'. (Maybe Jane Fonda can get Canada's Cagey Climatologist to once and for all  'prove that climate change is man- made'!!! That'd be funny.) Where-oh-where does Hanoi Jane get her scripted 'facts'?!! You might wonder how some people become so deluded, so detached from reality.

What can you expect from pathetic multi-millionaires who dish out their scornful doses of leftism to the dumb proles?! Hanoi Jane brushed past a female protester (a protester, by the way, who was not a happy Fonda fan) patronizingly telling the protester that "I am not against you" - while in fact, Hanoi Jane WAS against her, and against the people of Fort McMurray. Fonda was there on a 'higher' mission, as a GreenFear-spouting stooge.
Fonda should be nominated for a GreenFear Oscar for her amazing Fort McMurray performance, for her phony act, as she patronized the local yokels with her phony 'care' - all the while, her agenda  was to shill for the Greenpeace/Agenda 21 globalists who despise the mere existence of Fort McMurray.
If Fonda can act as a willing propagandist for the Black Panthers, she can act as a useful idiot shilling for the 'Club of Rome' too.
It was amazing to see Fonda performing her Fort McMurray 'compassion' act - phony compassion from a person who had proudly named her own child with father Tom Hayden,'after a Viet Cong martyr who attempted to assassinate US defense secretary Robert McNamara, before wisely changing it to Troy".

That's the kind of deplorable mentality which touched down in Fort McMurray.

 (Isn't it hilarious, by the way, how Wikipedia's lengthy page about Jane Fonda DOESN'T MENTION that Fonda's infatuation with Viet Cong Communists led to her naming a child after an assassin? Wikipedia just says this:
 "Their son, Troy O'Donovan Garity, was born on July 7, 1973 in Los Angeles, and was given his paternal grandmother's maiden name, as the names "Fonda and Hayden carried too much baggage". Fonda and Hayden wanted to give their son a name that "was both American and Vietnamese" and chose "Troy", an Anglicization of the Vietnamese "Troi", as the only name they could think of meeting that requirement. Hayden chose O'Donovan as the middle name after Irish revolutionary Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa." 
 Amazing how Wikipedia's Jane Fonda page simply avoids (covers up) any further details explaining Fonda's 'Anglicization of Troi" - such as that name was chosen to lionize and honour an enemy of the US who tried to kill an American defense secretary!

But, Wikipedia's page on Nguyen Van Troi DOES state that:
"Anti-war activists Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden named their son, an actor now known as Troy Garity, in honor of Trá»—i."

Then we look at Troy Garity's Wikipedia page, which states:
"Troy Garity was born Troi O’Donovan Garity Hayden... ... His parents named him for the Vietnamese resistance leader Nguyen Van Troi"
Funny at how the information is skewed here - reading this deceptive spin, we are led to believe that Jane Fonda lovingly named her son after a simple, benign, well-meaning friendly ole "resistance leader" y'see - not after an assassin who attempted to kill Americans Robert McNamara and Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.


It didn't take long for some deluded celebrity to conflate Hurricane Irma with - - wait for it... Donald Trump!
This time, it's Jennifer Lawrence spouting nonsense in the Sept. 9, 2017 Independent, sounding as if she is mentally ill:

"Jennifer Lawrence has suggested that it is difficult not to feel as though the devastating hurricanes in Texas and approaching  Florida are signs of “Mother Nature’s rage and wrath” at America for electing Donald Trump...
.... "It's scary," she said in response to the interviewer’s statement that there was "an end-of-days feeling" across the world.
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognise it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
She then suggested the recent hurricanes devastating Texas and nearing Florida may have been prompted by Trump winning the presidency. "I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing."
Lawrence has been a vocal critic of Trump since he launched his presidential campaign in 2015, when she said a victory by him would "be the end of the world" during an Entertainment Weekly interview.
 She also spoke about him on the Graham Norton show in 2016 where she said she wanted an opportunity to see him and say: "Hey Trump - f*** you.""
Lawrence's "language" is easy to recognize, it's symptomatic of GreenFear-infection, a deluded mixture of confusion, fear, hate, and ignorance, all summed up in one pathetic politicized propagandized package. 
Who in Canada will ask Canada's Cagey Climatologist David Phillips to confirm that "climate change is due to human activity" - as Lawrence AND as Canadian PM Justin Turdo both claim?

Can David Phillips confirm that the weather and the climate will stop changing - and go into stasis - if Jennifer Lawrence's favourite politicians get elected??!
Lawrence isn't the only one spouting these profoundly ignorant GreenFear delusions: in Canada, climate alarmists such as J-Turd's federal Liberals and Kathleen Wynne's Ontario Liberals all spout the same propagandized Agenda-21 GreenFear. (The fear-mongers of the IPCC are meeting in Montreal this week with J-Turd's Environment Canada to cook up some more GreenFear for Lawrence's future consumption..!)
You can bet that pretty much all Canadian federal Liberal MP's and MPP's are cheering Lawrence on, as they believe and agree exactly with what she is saying: she is echoing their own delusions.
And yet: Canada's Cagey Climatologist sits on the sidelines, and cannot or will not discuss the GreenFear-mongering which his own federal agency is carrying on with the IPCC!!!

There have been countless comments made, similar to the idiocy spouted by Jennifer Lawrence, which bizarrely conflate Trump to 'climate change'. Typical would be something such as was posted by commenter David Grant, in a Dec.31, 2017 Newsweek artcle written by Grace Guarnieri headlined: "NIAGARA FALLS SNOW PHOTOS: THE WATERFALLS HAVE FROZEN OVER DURING NORTH AMERICAN COLD SNAP" . 
Grant vomited out: "This is what you get for voting for Trump!"
Wow: how utterly moronic - and you can bet that Jennifer Lawrence would entirely agree with this clown.
Obviously, it doesn't matter to Grant that the same cold had occurred in Niagara during Obama's term - - - and for thousands of years previously!!
The mental illness displayed by these GreenFear-infected people is astounding.
The deceptive, click-bait part of the Newsweek article was that - contrary to Newsweek's fake news claim - the waterfalls at Niagara were NOT "frozen over" at all; the water was flowing as it usually does. Water freezes in these parts in the winter - it is commonplace for the mist from the falls to cover the surrounding area with a buildup of ice!!
But the intent of articles such as these (and there were literally thousands of these articles between Christmas and New Year of 2017) are trying to make it look as if there is something out of the ordinary happening here, hinting at "climate change", as if Niagara Falls had never encountered freezing cold before! These sensationalized, spiked, fake reports roll out like clockwork every winter, as the WORLD-WIDE media gets involved, amplifying a lie that 'Niagara Falls has frozen', and, that this is somehow a never-seen-before phenomenon associated with 'climate change'. These local readers in far off places have no effing clue about it, yet chime in with their bizarre "knowledge" that somehow it has all to do with "climate change" or Trump.
What reporter Guarnieri should do, is follow up her Newseek non-story with a REAL examination of Niagara Falls' mayor Jim Diodati's destructive record of Liberal GreenFear beliefs. Please ask the GreenFear-pusher Dionutty to prove that the winter in Niagara Falls was caused by 'climate change!!! It would be instructive to watch the lies pour out of Diodati's mouth as he scrambles to assemble rationalizations based on fictitious climate fairy tales he learned from Jim Bradley and Al Gore. Make no mistake: Liberal hack Jim Diodati himself DOES think that climate change causes winter in Niagara and causes the falls to... uh... freeze. Diodati in his rapture with Green Bolshevism would also most likely agree that Trump caused the falls to freeze!! That's just the way these deluded Liberals are.
It was sickening to see this clown Diodumbo, with the other clown Mercer, going on about the cold on the CBC's New Years telecast from Niagara Falls on Dec. 31, 2017.
How is it that deluded morons who believe that hurricanes were caused by Trump, or that 'the falls froze because of Trump', have no explanation why hurricanes existed under Obama; or why Niagara Falls is 'frozen' on the Canadian side, where Liberals Diodati, Kathleen Wynne, and Justin Trudeau have jurisdiction?!! Didn't the falls on the Canadian side also freeze due to Turdo and Diodopey and Krooked Kathleen being elected, as well?!?
Oh... wait... it doesn't work that way... ...  ah... I see... !!


Further to the issues raised in Chapter 13 (...where Canada's Cagey Climatologist refused 'to go there' when asked about climate change!) we now see this sanctimonious claptrap from Akshat Rathi at Quartz (Sept. 2, 2017)  propagandizing that "Nobody would claim global warming created Harvey" is this writer for real?!
Jennifer Lawrence spouted that same superstition just a week after this article! Untold tens of thousands believe the GreenFear-mongering propagated by Obama and Crooked Hillary and Justin Trudeau and Stephane Dion and Jim Bradley and Al Gore and David Suzuki and the IPCC!! The Toronto Star and CTV and CBC and TVO and Huffington Post and countless other GreenFear-infected media sites -  with 'moral license'! -  constantly blare their GreenFear climatalarmism.

Rathi is in fact pushing GreenFear with this ridiculous article. He has the obligatory slime against Trump, then goes on to fear-monger that "The more Americans see global warming as a direct threat, the better the chances for the whole world of doing something about it."

So Rathi does us a favour here, and reveals the phony underpinnings of the GreenFear hoax: that it is a matter of deception and of perception - not a matter of reality. It's a matter of appearance over substance. It's a matter of tone, of politicization, of power-grabbing, of exploiting natural disasters to fear-monger for political power.
This is GreenFear exposed.

Note how Rathi disgustingly couches his GreenFear propaganda in moral, not scientific tones - after all, his crap is headed "A "QUESTION OF TONE: It’s morally right to bring up climate change even as the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey unfolds."

Again, it's important to notice what the default position here is: it is the phony GreenFear premise that "it's all settled", so there cannot be a question of AGW. Therefore,  in this perverted, gamed construct, the 'moral high-ground' also defaults to the GreenFear-pushers.
It's funny, how Rathi and his GreenFear-pushing colleagues never criticize the 'tone' of Canada's Cagey Climatologist David Phillips, about the "morality" of Cagey refusing to acknowledge what Rathi would like Cagey to acknowledge: that humans cause hurricanes
Wow: doesn't David Phillips - Canada's Senior Cagey Climatologist! - have any moral climatic obligation to stop being cagey and finally admit that humans created hurricanes Katrina, Harvey, Irma, Hazel...??!
Isn't Cagey's refusal 'to go there' immoral, in Rathi's perverted opinion? (ahem... who muzzled Rathi not to ask David Phillips about these issues?!?)
It seems that most Canadian media outlets actually believe (through secret codes being telegraphed by Cagey and his interviewers..!!!!!!!!!!!) that Cagey IS covertly admitting that humans cause hurricanes - - isn't that the unspoken undercurrent, the intended subliminal take-away, of every David Phillips 'Cagey Tango interview' since time immemorial !?!
Yet,  GreenFear-mongering propagandists such as Rathi, paint Trump with climate-immorality - while Cagey  remains morally unscathed, as pure and morally innocent as the man-made snow!!


On Sept..11, 2017, David Horsey, a science-fiction-peddling entertainer in the Los Angeles Times, spouted off more GreenFear horsesh!t, peddling the GreenFear climate change lie while saying that climate change doesn't cause hurricanes wildfires, or tornadoes!! Yep: figure that one out!! Marvel at the disconnect, the deflection and the deception!
Oh, how Al Gore's mythological narrative conveniently changes; how desperately the "it's all settled" GreenFear propaganda is pretzelized - twisted, bent contorted and reshaped - to prolong the phony meme!
Canada's Cagey Climatologist would be impressed by the sheer deception, deflection, and perversion penned here by Horsey - this is Toronto-Star-quality, Green Bolshevik-level, propaganda! 
Here's a classic climate-change-propaganda piece, deceptively crafted and presented as NOT being a climate-change-propaganda piece! (...like that CTV Rinaldo-Rao phony report in Chapter 18... or like most CBC reports..!)
David Horsesh!t includes an obligatory slime against Trump AND Rush Limbaugh - yet, strangely, the seemingly-cognitively-impaired Horsey doesn't comprehend the conflicting 'logic' in his climate tale: Limbaugh has never claimed that hurricanes are caused by 'climate change'; so in fact, Horsey AGREES with Limbaugh, yet still finds it necessary to attack him!
Horsey deftly, purposefully, ignores - he denies! - mentioning all the other climate change hoaxters who DO claim that climate change (...including hurricanes) is caused by man!  
That is exactly the perception that they do want to convey - - it's not the opposite, as this LA Times science-fiction entertainer purports!

Following up on CTV's previous climate-propaganda-peddling efforts (as seen previously in Chapter 18), we see CTV and David Phillips again spreading climate-change propaganda in Josh K. Elliott's June 1, 2017 CTV News story.
Was CTV reporter Josh K. Elliott ordered by someone NOT to specifically ask Cagey Dave, whether the weather Cagey was referring to, was MAN-MADE CLIMATE CHANGE??

Do you see the purposeful deception; the double-speak, the planned innuendo and Green-Fear-mongering inherent in this piece of typical green-garbage 'reporting'? 

Josh  - like hundreds of Green-fear-spreading lemming  'reporters' before him - DID NOT bother to ask Cagey for Cagey's specific evidence of man-made climate change: why did this CTV reporter fail to be accurate; why did his editors allow this shoddy type of pseudo-journalism to continue?
This "story" is just like hundreds - if not thousands - of other similar half-baked, innuendo-laden stories in which Cagey was prominently featured over the years, spouting the same GreenFear mongering crap, dancing the exact same Cagey Tango with some compliant reporter.

It is important to note that in his last paragraph, Josh wrote that David Phillips 'added that summers have been gradually warming up over the last 70 years due to climate change' - yet, look closely: Josh DID NOT actually provide the specific quote anywhere in his article of EXACTLY what Cagey said on this point - - there was no direct quote by David Phillips; it was Josh K. Elliott's interpretation of whatever Cagey said.
Take a look: the only mention of climate change was made in the story's last paragraph by  CTV reporter Josh, who then attributed it to David Phillips. 
If Phillips said this, why not then actually provide the actual quote in its entirety??? 
Why does CTV publish an entire article creating ominous fear about weather (with no mention of climate-change), until the very last paragraph, where climate-change is finally introduced as the 'cause' of all this previously-mentioned weather? Furthermore, as pointed out, the climate change phrase is not given to us as a direct quote, but as an attribution made by the reporter.

Why all this two-faced, side-stepping double-speak??? 
Did David Phillips actually directly claim - with no scientific evidence asked for, nor any provided...! - that the summers are warmer everywhere on the planet since 1947??! 

- Why didn't  CTV reporter Josh provide the actual quote wherein Cagey told him about climate change causing summers to be warmer over the last 70 years???

 - And, on the other hand, why wouldn't David Phillips correct the reporter, if the report overstated or misinterpreted what was said?!? For Gaia's sake: Cagey Dave had "refused to go there" about climate-change with the CBC (...see Chapter 13 above!) back in March 2017; so why would Cagey Dave decide to (supposedly) mention climate change to this CTV reporter, in this story, 3 months later??!

- And why didn't CTV reporter Josh K. Elliott challenge David Phillips to specify what "climate-change" David Phillips was referring to? Was Cagey cagily and obliquely referring to man-made climate change? Or, was that cleverly left for reporter Josh to assume on his own; to use his own biases to interpret Cagey's vague decantings, maybe taking personal guidance from climate luminaries such as, oh, Leonardo Dicaprio or Jane Fonda or Jennifer Lawrence, known for their knowledgeable perspectives?!? 

- Why didn't  CTV's stenographer Josh ask David Phillips to provide the evidence that it was man-made climate change (AGW) which according to Canada's Senior Cliamatalarmist, has caused 'summers to be warmer for 70 years' ?????

- And why didn't this CTV stenographer ask David Phillips to scientifically back up his supposed 'last 70 years' claim? The summer warming started '70 years' ago eh? - - but exactly where?? Was it everywhere - equally, without exception, across the entire planet - exactly 70 years ago, that summers started getting warmer??! That's what Josh reported that Cagey told him!!!

Yet: Josh didn't bother to challenge Cagey on anything! Cagey spouted his usual loquacious "rock-and-rolling" "either way" teflon-smeared climate-innuendo, and the reporter  danced along with Cagey's lead, no questions asked!

We've seen this exact same Cagey Tango, where the media and David Phillips perform their award-winning Cagey Side-Step routine, where some reporter and Cagey cozily dance their choreographed 'don't-ask-don't-tell / you-know-what-I-want' moves; the reporter willingly side-steps asking hard questions, as Cagey coyly side-steps giving soft answers, both moving in unison to carefully make sure - nudge-nudge-wink-wink - that they don't step onto each other's toes for their own mutual benefit, to further their own agendas - - it's the exact same GreenFear-mongering template, the same song-and-dance, time after nauseating time.

What was different 71 years ago, then?? Can David Phillips provide evidence that AGW suddenly started on Jan.1, 1947 {...but only, apparently, during the summers!!} and that there was NO climate change prior to 1947????! Were summers all colder, everywhere on the planet, up to the end of 1946??! 
C'mon Dave: WTF are ya doin' here?!?

Did it not occur to CTV reporter Josh K. Elliott to ask??
Or was it Josh's job here, in collecting his CTV pay cheque, to not ask any questions, to not rock the 'it's all settled' boat, but to just dance the Cagey Tango with David Phillips, obediently spreading climate change propaganda??


Let's remember how Canadian Liberal Prime Minister, the global GreenFear-pushing Justin Trudeau, moaned about the death of socialist scumbag Maurice Strong, who was an inspiration to many of Canada's sick Liberals and socialists. (...Turdo also is fond of  dictatorships, because they can get things - like climate change legislation - done quickly, without opposition...)

Back in 2007... (back when Ontario's own Godfather of GreenFear, Liberal MPPJim Bradley, was agitating for climate fascism) ... a detailed article about Strong was written by Claudia Rosett, on Feb. 8, 2007, headlined "The Curious Career of Maurice Strong", in which Rosett named Strong as the "Godfather of  the environmental movement" (..which is exactly what Liberal GreenFearmonger Jim Bradley made himself out to be in Ontario, by the way). The article gave an eyeopening summary into the green fascist movement as it was at the time, ten years ago - but - it is still quite relevant, interesting and informative to re-read this same article, ten years later, in 2017, to see how prescient the analysis and warnings were.

Let's also go back a few years, to 2012, to read Tom DeWeese's description of Maurice Strong in the "The Most Dangerous Man In The World":

"...This is a speech I first gave to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 1996, just four years after the UN’s Earth Summit in Rio. At the time I gave this address there were strong indications that Maurice Strong could be chosen as the next UN Secretary General. It didn’t happen, but that didn’t diminish his influence over the body. In fact, In 1996 all roads in the UN led to Maurice Strong. This speech represented the first time that the CPAC audience and most conservatives had ever heard of the radical agenda of the environmental movement. It was probably the first time the term Sustainable Development was ever heard by a conservative audience. In fact, at the time I gave this speech, environmentalism was the most popular and most powerful movement in the world. Yet, here, 15 years before “Climategate” I was revealing the very root of what was to become the “Climate Change” movement and its drive to destroy the industrial West. By the way, tapes of this speech became the most popular of any ever produced by the American Policy Center and continues to be one of our best sellers. TD

Let me begin by asking you a few questions. They may seem rather silly – but I have a point. So, please, just indulge me for a moment – just answer with a show of hands:
How many of you know of Adolf Hilter – and that he was evil? How many of you know Mao Tse Tung – and that he was evil? How many of you know of Lenin and Stalin – and that they were evil?
How many of you know of Maurice Strong – and that he is evil?
There is the point of my questions. Maurice Strong has the potential to be the most powerful and most evil dictator the world has ever known – right now – today – in our day and age – and yet, most of you have never heard of him."...

We should remember how, in a Nov.28, 2015 CBC story, Justin Trudeau just, uh, forgot to mention Maurice Strong's disgusting involvement the corruption-infested UN Oil For Food scam, or Strong's disgusting connections to Canada's wealthy Liberals!! Lying by omission; rehabilitating green fascists: that's Canadian Liberalism for you.
The CBC reports Justin Turdeau spewing the leftist meme about Strong being a pioneer in "sustainable development"- but what does that crap mean?
Does Turdo himself understand what his Agenda 21 handlers are telling him to say?!

Well, as it happens, DeWeese had already pre-explained for us, back in 2012, what Trudeau (and all his Turdobot Agenda 21 clones along with him) mean, when they speak of "sustainability":

"The assault on property rights – in fact the entire radical environmental agenda – is being driven by the United Nations. And Maurice Strong is the number one force behind UN environmental policy. Maurice Strong is the leader of a radical contingent of Environmentalists that believe technology and modern industrialization must be stopped.
Does that sound overstated or too extreme? Well, let me read you a much more radical statement and these are not my words – they’re Maurice Strong’s:
In 1992, Strong told a UN conference…: “It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”
Now, let me explain this new term “Sustainable” that you will see popping up in environmental policy more and more. Radical greens believe that all of man’s activities on Earth are harmful (and therefore not sustainable). They believe that man is a cancer on the Earth. Their goal is to slowly cut back and finally end all development and reduce human habitat to specific areas while the rest of the world is turned into wilderness."

This is the belief of GreenFear-pushers, such as Niagara's Liberal MPP Jim Bradley. This is what the Green-Shifter Stephane "Bumbledore" Dion believed. This is what St. Catharines MP Chris Bittle's federal Liberals believe. This is what Jim Bradley's Ontario Liberals believe. Just because Strong is dead doesn't mean that his fellow-travelers have stopped kissing his ideological ass: they relentlessly continue push their GreenFear agenda, on a daily basis. (TVO airs climate propaganda every day!)

And climatalarmist David Phillips? It looks like he's just one of the soldier-enablers on that gangrene-infected GreenFear Road.
Nicolle Mortillaro (CBC Nov.13, 2017) spouted more GreenFear, and the same day, on the CBC's disgusting nightly "National News" television broadcast, the pathetic Rosemary Barton kept up the GreenFear shill, peddling the climate change '15,000 scientists' garbage over and over,  unquestioningly regurgitating what they were told to spout.


Now that there was another cold snap across Canada and the States in Dec. 2017, starting before Christmas, it's funny how the global warming and climate rhetoric becomes more subdued. (it doesn't stop TVO from peddling its climate change propaganda, though: they still shill their green garbage EVERY DAY, almost hourly!) The GreenFear is still being peddled, but using unsubstantiated phrases such as 'it feels like' and 'extreme'.  When Canada got a white Christmas, the Green Fear peddlers cringed, because they would have preferred writing more of their 'Green Christmas' narrative stories, to peddle their spin.
Cagey Dave was peddling the idea that there would be a warmer winter, as Alexandra Jones wrote in the Toronto Star Nov.21, 2017, in an article comparing Dave Phillps' projections with Chris Scott's forecasts. But make no mistake about it, Alexandra Jones' Star article was nothing but typical GreenFear propaganda - there was no semblance of journalism here: the elephant in the room - AGW - was purposefully and carefully avoided by Jones AND by her two subjects.
       A real interview with Cagey and Scott by a non GreenFear-infected journalist would be quite interesting - yet, this was NOT it, and it appears there never will be such a thing on Canadian media.
     You will note that the underlying lie (that AGW is man -made) is, as expected, as usual  the unquestioned starting point - therfore rendering the entire discussion here as a charade.
     Who censored Alexandra Jones, preventing her from directly asking Cagey Dave and Scott for answers regarding the evidence of man -made climate change?! Listening to these participants, no-one broaches the question if the El Nina or El Nino they refer to, are also 'man-made'!! Did anyone muzzle Jones, or David Phillips, or Chris Scott?! This phony Toronto Star 'reporter' had a direct chance to engage BOTH high-profile weather forecasters to confront the issue as to whether the weather they are commenting upon, is DIRECTLY LINKED to man made climate change.

But instead, Alexandra Jones doubled-down and just performed a slimy Cagey menage-a-trois three-step tango.
Her CBC snow-job was not to investigate climate-change, but to propagate climate change.

     Get ready for the Toronto Red Star to publish some slime about Trump AND deflect from the NON-global warming we're having - oh, wait: as expected. they've already done it, reprinting a sack of Greenfear Garbage headlined "It’s cold outside. Get ready for the Trump global warming tweet"
originally vomited up by New York Slimes hack Kendra Pierre-Louis.
Kendra has no evidence of AGW, just like TorStar hack Alexandra Jones has none - but they love to spread the GreenFear narrative.
And yet  disgusting Toronto Star editor Kathy English (see Chapter 14 ) claims that her socialist propaganda rag doesn't publish fake news!!! 


Finally, Canada's cagiest Climatologist comes out and claims that all weather is due to man made climate change - or is it really what he said - who knows?! Thankfully, a sports videographer (not a science-fiction critic...) was on hand to help peddle Cagey's climatic- wet-dream, writing:

    "Canadians love to talk about the weather. And there’s been plenty to talk about this winter with lots of snow, deep freezes and quick thaws.
According to experts, it all falls into the category of “climate change,” the focus of a Kingston Symposium on Friday. Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips helped to kick off the daylong event.
"Everybody recognizes now that it is a major threat, probably one of the most important environmental issues that humankind has ever faced.”
Raising awareness and pushing for action — that’s what Phillips and others are trying to do...."
You read it: snow, freezing and thawing are somehow all conflated by David Phillips into being un-natural, caused by man! (Therefore, unexplained "action" is needed... !)
David Phillips - on the federal government's payroll as Canada's Chief Climate Green-Fear propagandist - peddled horseshit that "Everybody recognizes now that it is a major threat, probably one of the most important environmental issues that humankind has ever faced.” without any scrutiny from anyone in Kingston!! Why doesn't David Phillips make these bloated claims under his official capacity as an Environment Canada employee? Is he expressing his personal or his official federal government department's official views?? Why isn't anyone asking?
This Climate Clown was preaching his addictive GreenFear-mongering to his own echo chamber.
Apparently, Canada has never had snow, never seen thaws, never experienced floods, never has droughts, never had severe storms...... it's the same deceptive, Cagey Crap, shat out of Cagey's deceptive mouth into the receptive ears of his GreenFear-infected acolytes.
Cagey was there to peddle his seductive climate-change bullshit - that's clearly his 'gig' - and his  fans eagerly swallowed Cagey's GreenFear-infected deceptive diarrhea

The Kingston Whig Standard's Elliot Ferguson had a chance to act as a reporter, instead of a fan, by asking David Phillips for any evidence that anything Cagey was saying, was linked to man made AGW climate change. {...because that was the underlying pathological delusion underlying the raison d'etre of this 'sustainability' conclave, wasn't it - that AGW climate change is all settled / so don't ask any questions, move along now, g'wan outta here, ya denier...}
David Phillips fear mongers about extremes and about changes, yet, no one asks him to quantify anything, nor question his theories on his preferred alt-world-climate view - that of climate stasis - where apparently nothing anywhere, ever changes (...and if it does change, well, gulldarnit, it'll be controlled by da gubermint... ... ... it beggars the laws of thermodynamics.
     But Ferguson - like the thousands of 'reporter lemmings' before him - DID NOT bother to question things: Ferguson re-peddled Cagey's conflated deceptions and happily sent Cagey's green fertilizer/propaganda back to his editor for spreading - wink, wink, wham, bam, thank-you, man: the sordid Cagey Tango was flawlessly and effortlessly performed once again, just as expected! 
The dirty dance was done, and - hurrah! - no GreenFear was hurt or damaged during the production - the deceptions and conflations will live on to propagate another day! The dance partners had their brief moment, and the issue of their dance -  a shiny new GreenFear report - will, Gaia-bless, grow with the years, joining the thousands of older bastard stories inseminated by Cagey and his dance partners, in their legendary Pantheon Of  Propaganda.
