Even Hoaxers Admit It Isn’t Getting Any Warmer

There’s no better time than April Fools Day to check in on the progress of the global warming crisis:

Debate about the reality of a two-decade pause in global warming and what it means has made its way from the sceptical fringe to the mainstream.

Even global warming profiteers have had to admit that their predictions are not coming true. True to form, they blame the embarrassing lack of rising temperatures on the source of all other problems — the emissions produced by human activity.

James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, says the lower than expected temperature rise between 2000 and the present could be explained by increased emissions from burning coal.

That is, increased emissions cool the planet, countering the warming caused by increased emissions.

Others come close to admitting that the jig is up for the Great Global Warming Swindle.

“The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations,” says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

“If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change,” he says.

Whitehouse argues that whatever has happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation because the pause in temperature rise has occurred despite a sharp increase in global carbon emissions.

It is becoming impossible to pretend that we haven’t been lied to. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change responds by screeching still more hysterical lies:

The upcoming IPCC report is expected to lift the maximum possible temperature increase [over the century] to 6C.

If temperatures still won’t go up, they may raise that to 12°C so that we’ll really be scared.

Getting less believable every day.

Socialized Medicine: Money for Fake Boobs as Patients Starve

Why are capitalist countries wealthy and socialist countries poor Because the free market allocates resources more wisely than bureaucrats. This is how healthcare resources are allocated under Britain’s regime of socialized medicine:

Britain’s National Health Service, the NHS, recently spent £4,800 — about $7,200 — on enormous breast implants for an aspiring model while nearly 1,200 patients starved to death in hospitals over the past four years. Critics say the deaths were caused by neglect due to understaffing.

The NHS provided Josie Cunningham with 36DD implants in January after she told her doctor that being flat-chested was causing emotional distress.

It gets worse:

In addition to the breast implants, the NHS has also spent £25,000 — about $37,000 — on a sex-change operation for a 19-year-old male diagnosed with “gender identity disorder.”

Welcome to our collectivist future, in which sniveling about “emotional distress” or belonging to a privileged group beloved by liberals will get you medical service, but your own efforts to take financial responsibility for your potential needs will not.

$3,600 apiece, courtesy of taxpayers.

$2.7 Million to Figure Out Why Lesbians Drink Too Much

Apparently it wasn’t outrageous enough that the federal government flushed away $1.5 million of our money trying to figure out why most lesbians are so fat. Now this:

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $2.7 million to study why lesbians are at a higher “risk for hazardous drinking.”

The University of Illinois has received grants since 2009 for its project, “Cumulative Stress and Hazardous Drinking in a Community of Adult Lesbians,” which aims to develop “culturally sensitive” strategies to prevent lesbians from being drunks.

If the bureaurats doling out our money want to know why lesbians drink too much and eat too much, I’ll tell them: because people who construct their public identity around being sexual perverts are by definition psychologically unhealthy in the extreme. Such people will tend to seek refuge from their neuroses and self-hatred in overeating and substance abuse. Now where do I collect my $2.7 million

Given that the government is funding this grotesque parody of research, you might have seen this coming:

Furthermore, the problem may be worse for “lesbians of color,” the researchers say.

Now that the feds set the priorities, doctors have deprioritized curing cancer in favor of “health disparities” — that is, the quixotic quest for evidence that disease is more unhealthy for privileged non-whites, who therefore deserve yet more special attention.

This is why it is absolutely crucial to medical research that the government have nothing whatsoever to do with funding it.
