Apocalypse Now!

H/T Drudge for the image

Must be the year of the Chicken Littles. First we have a tortured version of the biblical story of Noah and the great flood:

Lost within the film’s extreme environmentalist message is that the actual sins of the pre-Flood people were a rebellion against God and also man’s inhumanity to man.

Noah’s misanthropy is revealed many times in the film. For example, when the girlfriend of Noah’s son Ham is caught in a trap and is about to be overtaken by some marauders, Noah leaves the girl to die at their hands. The film’s Noah wants to totally destroy the human race and doesn’t want his sons to have children. In perhaps the most shocking part of the film, Noah plans to kill his unborn grandchild, the child of Shem’s wife, if it is a girl.

We all know Hollywood and Christianity rarely cross paths. And the ignorance of Hollywood to scripture equals its ignorance of science and math. Got to say, Hollywood as the edge on weird and non functional clothing. But beyond that the place really is only fair at mimicking real life. True, they make lots of money. But does Hollywood (and their ilk) really make a positive impact on humanity?

Not with this kind of misrepresentation. Who do they think they are fooling? Themselves at most.

So am I surprised at the PURE COINCIDENCE of the debut of a green-stained movie about Noah’s Flood and the release of hysterical alarm bells in a new the IPCC Chicken Little report?

Professor Berry is one of three leading academics who have contributed to the health chapter of a Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report due on Monday. She and co-authors Tony McMichael, of the Australian National University, and Colin Butler, of the University of Canberra, have outlined the health risks of rapid global warming in a companion piece for The Conversation, also published on Monday. The three warn that the adverse effects on population health and social stability have been ”missing from the discussion” on climate change.

”Human-driven climate change poses a great threat, unprecedented in type and scale, to wellbeing [sic], health and perhaps even to human survival,” they write.

The so called unprecedented warming does have precedence.  Early last century there was another similar rise in temps – followed by a dip. And over the millennia Earth, Man and Nature have experienced and adapted to much of the same.

The fact is, the alarmist know the gravy train is not coming their way and are panicking. They now fear their plans to take over the energy sector of the world (scary, given what they just did to the healthcare sector of the US) is all but gone. Trillions in green boondoggle funds slipping away.

But it is even worse than that. And they are just now seeing the other shoe dropping. If Global Warming (not seen in almost 2 decades now) fizzles out as huge over reaction – guess what else slips away? The billions of dollars now being flushed down the green-toilet of wasted research. Another 10 years of no warming (or even cooling) and the gravy train will leave the green station for good.

So it is no wonder Hollywood (and their complete lack of basic science knowledge) have probably timed the release of Noah with the release of the IPCC report? Because as everyone knows – American’s are just a bunch of ignorant dupes, easily played. We would never be able to connect those dots!

Update: Hot Air goes for the Ghost Buster analogy for IPCC!

Throughout the 21st century, climate-change impacts are projected to slow down economic growth, make poverty reduction more difficult, further erode food security, and prolong existing and create new poverty traps, the latter particularly in urban areas and emerging hotspots of hunger,” the report declared.

Too funny. That all looks to be the likely result of government intervention, not CO2, IHMO – end update

BTW: the worst Hollywood technical goof I have to endure is in the movie Battleship – a movie I really enjoy. In that movie the satellite LANDSAT 7 is supposed to be a Deep Space communications satellite communicating with the alien invaders and their home world.

I guess Hollywood doesn’t get why the bird is called “LANDSAT”. LANDSAT 7 is a low earth orbiter. Deep Space is defined as from the Moon’s orbit out.  It is also not a communications satellite (which are at a much higher orbit and actually look stationary from Earth’s surface). LANDSAT 7 faces Earthward – making measurements of the “land“. Therefore it whips around the world ever 90-110 minutes (depending on its orbit design, I just did not look up the specific orbital period). Which means it is only overhead 5-15 minutes and then only maybe once a day.

I have to just get through that crap in the movie, which shows a serious intellectual laziness that someone in Hollywood could not take the time to just Google the mission page and comprehend what it means. And if you can’t comprehend, then ask someone who can. I get through it, but every time I am amazed at the ignorance on display.

I mean – duh!

One response so far

One Response to “Apocalypse Now!”

    Yeah, the whole green machine is going to be taken to the tool shed not by any ideological, political or social movement. Not even by “good science” correcting decades of bogus confirmation biased “bad research”. No, the greenies and a large section of their entire political embedded structure are going to be taught a lesson by good ol’ Mother Nature herself! Oh the irony!

    Speaking of Battleship technical inaccuracies. It made the movie almost impossible for me to watch. Missouri turning circle so small. Missouri bouncing up and down in the water like a cork. Missouri leaning 15 degrees in less than a second. Getting the guns into operation by man handling charges AND projectile into the guns! HAHAHAHA! For most people it was just a bad movie. For engineering/technical types it was almost impossible to watch at all. The LANDSAT misfire escaped me! Good one!
