Playing the fool - Josh 383

Actor and activist Leo DiCaprio: 

“If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science or empirical truths and therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office,” he said.

The irony is that DiCaprio has come under fire for taking private jets around the world and renting out superyachts for lavish parties — that’s a big carbon footprint for a climate crusader.

Hacked Sony emails showed DiCaprio used private jets to fly between New York to Los Angeles six times in six weeks during 2015.

The Academy Award winning actor even flew 8,000 miles to receive an environmental reward — enough carbon dioxide was burnt to power 20 U.S. homes for a year.

One automated tracking boat being tested but not enough to prevent "happy time" like operations of the early war period.

A few well aimed torpedos or cruise missiles on the top deck of these platforms and Europe will freeze for the Winter
Russia will come to a "respectable " peace and also possibly increase its market share.

Are the monopolists bush whacking Europe into a sort of limited general war using the usual Ann Clwyd suspects.
Big oil majors want out of the North Sea anyway.
War could be the catalyst.
As I said modern war is all about the ability to charge monopoly pricing.
Who will start the fire?
And who will collect?

Dr Waney Squier a dangerous heretic who has the Medical Establishment running scared

If Shaken Baby Sydrome can be bollocks so can Global Warming.

Apparently Leo's education consists of a GED. That's what you earn instead of finishing high school. In other words he is a very wealthy, very uneducated man. How much of an easy target does that make him for the sciencey pretense of the climatocracy?

The Clintons have created a hybrid between the massively corrupt Tammany Hall and Evita Peron with their foundation. Pay to play, shake down, influence purchasing, etc. But on a massive international scale. Media, government, law enforcement, finance- all have been corrupted or compromised by the Clinton machine. Do recall that Argentina has really never recovered from the damage of the Perons.

Again I would advise people to read the UKs pink book last page.

Net investment position (net)

The European figures are off the wall.

Massive numbers are seen in Ireland and Luxembourg.

There is a mysterious "other " without jurisdiction in Europe

A little sum of -221 billion Sterling (2014)

I imagine these figures began to explode after Londons big bang of 1986.

Could someone please explain to me what this large sum with no jurisdiction is?

Will war be used to write off these figures?
Will Shell escape large losses?
Will Norway absorb most?

Unilever ( a Anglo Dutch company) has released alittle message of possible more extreme rationing
In store for the future.
It has been noted.

Heh, environmentalists eating their own, this time DiCaprio's being carved up. See Watts Up.

How wonderfully pathetic. Montford's oil funding has dried up, faced with the inevitability of people accepting science, and here you still are howling against the dying of the light on a crank blog which now looks like it's left open just to let you embarrass yourselves under days-old creepy cartoons.

The whole world thinks you're a joke and here the few remaining ones of you are, frothing and ranting about your conspiracy theories, too scared to comment somewhere people would burst out laughing at what utter cranks you clearly are.

Oct 15, 2016 at 1:28 AM | Unregistered CommenterZedsDeadBed

ZDB, in that case you have nothing to fear from the change in political climate in the UK. The EU is looking shakey, and who knows what may happen in the USA.

Apart from Taxpayer funding, nothing else is driving climate science.

Oct 15, 2016 at 2:03 AM | Unregistered Commentergolf charlie

ZDB. Oh how simply marvellous, you've visited us once again (it's been too long) spreading your message of joy. Seems, however, that your message is oddly familiar - lack of oil money, reliance on cartoons &c &c.

Been busy elsewhere?

Russia showboating their highly vulnerable flagship around the North Sea.
Only real military signifance is to draw in opposing naval units.
Meanwhile the real action is happening below......

"Eyes closed tight shut to avoid self-evident hypocrisy,
Brow contorted because the science is not so self evident,
Pursed lips to broadcast the self evident,
And if it's still not self evident to you look at my magnificent hat.'

You're off topic, ACK -

This is supposed to be about Di Caprio, not Trump.

Oct 16, 2016 at 12:09 AM | Unregistered CommenterRussell

Russell. Oh so you think I wrote a typo and the last words of the quote "my magnificent hat" should have been "my magnificent cat"!

Oct 16, 2016 at 7:57 AM | Unregistered CommenterACK

Yea.
Let's hear it for ZDB.
Willing to visit us in our misery.
It's gulag-tastic.
Re-ally.

Oct 16, 2016 at 10:13 PM | Unregistered Commentermichael hart

Hat ttip to Ack for confirming a cat transplant explains both Trump's morals and his hairdo.

Oct 16, 2016 at 10:24 PM | Unregistered CommenterRussell

vvussell, your major ttypo was writing "Trump" instead of "Clinton". It is the current US Presidential campaigning that makes the UK's Labour Party seem a triumph of Democracy.

Oct 16, 2016 at 11:30 PM | Unregistered Commentergolf charlie

Russell. Please do not put words into my mouth. I get into enough scapes here without any help from others. I would add that Josh's cartoon, that I was trying to explain humorously, was definitely about diCaprio.

Oct 17, 2016 at 8:32 AM | Unregistered CommenterACK

Heh, when Romney spoke of Trump supporters just getting a lousy hat, my first thought was 'Make That Lousy Hat Great Again'.

To assist Trump's activities, perhaps Putin will send him Russian contraceptives.

These are generally known as "little red riding hoods".

EM. Have you thought to change your nom-de-blog to "Eclectic Man"?

Oct 17, 2016 at 1:56 PM | Unregistered CommenterACK

ACK

Have you thought to change your nom-de-blog to "Eclectic Man"?

Best not.

I already get enough complaints from the narrow-minded.

Follow the activities of the most connected combines..
Once free of obligations the bombs will be dropped.
Perhaps the little Irish based Corrib field will survive supplying the inflated British population at near infinite price.

Oct 17, 2016 at 2:52 PM | Unregistered CommenterThe Dork of Cork

DiCaprio? Looks more like a mashup of Michael Kent and Michael Mann.

Oct 17, 2016 at 8:05 PM | Unregistered CommenterRussell

vvussell, he does have the approved Team Weirdy Beardy look. Is it obligatory, to match the double standards of hypocrisy?

Oct 17, 2016 at 10:54 PM | Unregistered Commentergolf charlie

The Bish should sic the secular arm on GC: lese majeste'!

Oct 18, 2016 at 10:23 AM | Unregistered CommenterRussell

Russell. Are you now claiming "majesty"? Dream on!.
