Je Suis En Terrasse

James Delingpole:

Global warming did not enter the Bataclan theatre with three Kalashnikovs and mow down 80 people. Climate change did not explode 224 Russian holidaymakers over the Sinai. Ocean acidification did not abduct 2,000 Nigerian girls and murder thousands more men. Global climate disruption was not responsible for the massacre of 164 people in Mumbai or 67 people at Nairobi’s Westgate mall. Marginally increased atmospheric concentrations of the harmless trace gas carbon dioxide did not fly two passenger aircraft into the World Trade Center, killing nearly 3,000 people on 9/11. None of this is speculation. This is verifiable, empirical fact.

Marc Morano on Hannity:

Donald Trump: “While the world is in turmoil and falling apart in so many different ways, especially with ISIS, our president is worried about global warming. What a ridiculous situation.”

Geraldo Rivera on Obama claiming ‘global warming’ was biggest problem: I think Trump nailed it. Here in Paris of all places, the blood is barely off the sidewalks from where people were killed. The [UN climate] conference was as lame as anything it could possibly be.”

And in Paris one of the cafes that was attacked has re-opened:

A banner now hangs from a balcony over La Bonne Biere’s awning, reading “Je suis en terrasse” — or “I am on the terrace,” the phrase adopted by Parisians after the attack to show they would not be scared off their city’s streets. Diners filled in the seats of the cafe’s terrace after it reopened.

The customers on the terrace would have mostly been smokers, of course, driven there by another pointless crusade against another non-problem. (I spotted at least two smokers in the Telegraph’s video.)

All the terrace tables had ashtrays:

If I’d been in Paris (and I worked there for a few months once), I’d have been en terrasse too.

Maybe that’s how this madness ends: real problems drive out illusory pseudo-problems.

Alex Jones is a bit too far over the top for me, but here’s his interview of Donald Trump a couple of days ago:

      I’m not a ‘front group’ for Big Oil. And I’m not a ‘front group’ for Big Tobacco either. Nobody pays me anything.

      The guy in this video talks as if the science is settled, and always has been. It isn’t, and it wasn’t, and it never will be. The science is never settled.

      Perhaps Costello would be so kind as to tell us just what the average temperature of the Earth should be and why.

        After hours, there is no answer and probably never will be one.

          So the ‘Global Warming’ industry isn’t worth trillions? I thought that the latest conference was calling for trillions to be invested (by the west) to counter this impending Armageddon. Sounds like a pretty good reason for them to keep the gravy train rolling, to me. Those trillions are going somewhere, and I rather suspect a lot of the major players in the ‘global warming’ industry are getting very fat on it. Al Gore for one. But he’s high profile. The real winners will be keeping their heads down while ramping up the rhetoric.

          @Castello2,
          In respect of the state of knowledge 40 years ago (Exxon or otherwise), I think you might find this of great interest:

          I won’t comment on that except to strongly recommend that you read it and form your own view.

    UKIP Fury Over Postal Votes ‘Scandal’ In Oldham By-Election

    OLDHAM, United Kingdom – Senior figures in the UK Independence Party (UKIP) have expressed their fury at the conduct of the Oldham West and Royton by-election following concerns over a huge surge in postal votes.

    The evening began with UKIP confident of running Labour a very close second, but Labour stormed ahead when postal votes were counted.

    Sources reported that the number of postal votes cast shot up in the last few days of the campaign, with a 55 per cent turn out suddenly rising to 70 per cent.

    Those votes went overwhelmingly in Labour’s favour, helping them hold the seat with a larger than expected majority.

    In the end Labour won 17,322 votes against UKIP’s 6,487, a majority of over 11,000. The Conservatives finished third with 2,596.

    Party leader Nigel Farage expressed deep concerns at the result, tweeting:

    Nigel Farage
    ✔ ‎@Nigel_Farage
    As a veteran of over thirty by-elections I have never seen such a perverse result. Serious questions need to be asked.

      What’s really neat is that the shooter worked for the public health department as an environmental protection inspector. Can’t help but wonder if his job consisted of inspecting restaurants for the public health hazard of secondhand smoke. In any case the potential ironies (public health, environment) here are what a friend called “delicious.”

  8. junican says:

    I don’t really like to say this, but I think that it is true.
    Professional anti-smokers are terrorists. Why? Because they terrorise people. They make people afraid.
    In Tobacco Control’s propaganda, nicotine is as addictive as heroin. They say it, but never explain. It could be, for example, that they mean that one can become addicted to nicotine just as quickly as become addicted to heroin. In that sense, ‘nicotine is as addictive as heroin’. No Zealot will ever say that those two addictions have different consequences.
    If terrorists intend to spread fear, then ASH ET AL are terrorists. That is what they major in. That is their ‘raison d’etre’ from the beginning.
    Is there anything more despicable? At least when priests condemned extra-marital sex, they were supporting a belief that the procreation of children was sacred. The anti-smoking terrorists have no such moral imperative, even thought they pretend so – ‘for the children’. I wonder what they would do if everyone with children dumped their kids on the Zealots for a week or so and told the Terrorists to look after them?

    Yes to “Je Suis En Terrasse!” This should be the clarion call for re-taking the terraces, patios, and pubs and overturning smoking bans.

    • slugbop007 says:

      Good luck with that. A ban on terraces, pubs and patios was just passed into law in Quebec two weeks ago. Apartheid is alive and well in Quebec. All under the guise of Quebec Values and protection of the children. I sent (Tweeted) the (SOTT) Sign of the Times French version extract on the history of antitobacco tactics in Nazi Germany to the Premier of Quebec and the Mayor of Montreal three days ago. I’m sure that it didn’t bother them one bit. They don’t wear military uniforms and goose step everywhere they go. They wear Armani suits and profess to be Liberals, so they can’t be Nazis. Mon oeil.

    One researcher accused of misleading information by another researcher who was ‘compelled’ to refute them by her sponsor, Pfizer. Pharma Wars:

    … Prochaska (of UCSF) identified the need for the re-analysis after reading the
    /CMAJ/ publication and finding the conclusion inconsistent with the
    small differences within trials. Prochaska had received an
    “investigator-initiated research award” from Pfizer, the maker of
    Chantix, that spring for a separate study of varenicline in hospitalized
    smokers, many with heart disease. Prochaska says she was compelled to
    more closely examine the data to quantify the level of risk before using
    the medication on UCSF patients.

    She was compelled to toe the line or lose her grant.

    Well the terrorists in Calif took out 14 and wounded several other health facists………..
    But then when you support and push the terrorists like ISIS to push your anti-smoking laws and rules even if it includes beheading and hands lobbed off for for breaking their jihad law how can we feel bad if the same terrorists kill off some of the allies here in America. I know I wont shed a tear over it. All the Obama administration was interested in was how he could use it to further his other pet peave besides anti-smoking his anti-gun agenda……..

    Posted on June 17, 2014 by Frank Davis

    A few days back, the prohibition of tobacco and alcohol in Iraq by Muslim extremists raised the question of whether Western antismoking organisations would support such measures.

    H/T Harley, it would seem that at least one Muslim group in Indonesia was getting funding from a Michael Bloomberg-owned organisation in 2010:

    An organization owned by the mayor of New York City has channeled over US$390,000 to Muhammadiyah as part of a global anti-tobacco campaign, but the country’s second largest Islamic organization denied the funding influenced its recent edict banning smoking.

    A. Fattah Wibisono, a deputy secretary at Muhammadiyah’s council tasked with issuing religious edicts, acknowledged that his organization was cooperating with the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, a philanthropic organization established in 2006 by Michael R. Bloomberg to fight tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries…
