best short article on climate change

climate change debate in public forums is full of silly crap, so it was a pleasure to read slate's save the earth in six hard questions -what al gore doesn't understand about climate change by steven e. landsburg.

it focuses in the real points at issue clearly and simply, without dumbing down, and in the process explains the skepticism felt by large number of people, including by myself, about the whole thing.

while the following are not the questions mentioned in the article, they are related; is climate change real? if so, do we humans contribute to it? if it is real, what are the exact effects? if we know that, do these effects matter? even if they matter, should we care? i am skeptical about the reliability and purported objectivity of the answers provided by climate change "evangelists" for each of these questions in spite of all their nobel prizes and films.

here is a link to stern review report on the economics of climate change referred at the end of that article.

four peacenik criminals quit human rights panel, good riddance!

it seems four prominent terrorist parroting peaceniks sunila abeysekera, nimalka fernando, rohan edirisinha and paikiasothy saravanamuttu, have quit a ten member human rights panel bc "their advice was not taken seriously".
these ppl who,
  • believe in the racist notion that ltte terrorists are fighting for tamils/tamils support terrorists,
  • believe that peace is worth any cost (even the cost of democracy, justice, human rights and freedom ),
  • and are willing to perpetuate the culture of impunity here by allowing convicted mass murderers and their cronies more political power( in the process accusing thousands of men and women in the sri lankan armed forces with horrible crimes based on nothing but terrorist propaganda)
had no business in a human rights panel in the first place.

their advice if followed will only lead to more human rights violations not less, as their actions so far have indicated. in fact their actions convict them of being willing apologists for convicted gross violators of human rights of sri lanka.

  • these terrorist arse-lickers or their connected ngos, willingly accepted the terrorist claim to be sole representative of tamils (a claim which violates human rights of tamils especially).
  • they stayed quiet or supported the government while it failed to protect rights of sri lankans which were violated again and again by the terrorists during so called ceasefire.
  • they stayed quiet when military was attacked almost daily from december'05 to april'06 unprovoked and without retaliation.
  • they stayed quiet and failed to stand up for human rights while civilians as well as military were attacked and killed, and war crimes like holding water hostage were committed.
  • they opposed and lobbied against naming of ltte as terrorists organization by eu and other countries.
  • several of them collaborated in an attempt to inflate a small riot in trinco into another '83 (in the process plagiarizing a report by terrorist propaganda sourced dbs jeyaraj, as a result of a non existant fact finding mission to trinco.)
  • they suddenly and predictably became active when military acted after mavil aru and tried (among numerous other such perfidious actions) to make the terrorist ltte's temporary capture and attempted ethnic cleansing of muttur permanent by calling to "stop the siege" at that moment (in fact on the same day that 17 acf workers were killed in muttur).
  • they and their cronies clamored to have terrorist front tro accepted as a member of umbrella ngo organizations to provide it with cover.
  • they continually make false accusations against whole of sri lankans armed forces based on either absurd white van conspiracy theories dreamed up by pussy spin office or actions of a criminal few ( who when there is evidence has been arrested), in an effort create a moral equalization between armed forces of a democracy and a bunch of criminal thugs.
  • they traitorously lobby for foreign intervention in sri lanka thus violating political rights of participants of sri lankan democracy through foreign coercion.
  • they always complain of censorship, when in fact a look at a newsstand full of all sorts of opinions( including terrorists' own), accusations, and mud-throwings, by all sides of the political spectrum, will convince anyone not so blinkered that there isn't and wasn't any censorship(except for a temporary blocking of tamilnet ). on the other hand their own cronies censor anyone who disagrees from places they have under their control .
  • ...
I can go on and on.

after all that these criminals presume to speak for human rights and want their advice followed ? lol (yes only reaction to that can be laughter at them).

anyway thank god they have finally quit. (even tough they will continue with their criminal mischief elsewhere.)

what if peacenik fantasy of u.n. intervention becomes true? more violence?


peaceniks, parroting terrorists pussies as usual, have been and are lobbying for foreign intervention ( with an un monitoring team as the tip of the wedge). however imo( indeed as i have been saying for sometime) their chances of success are very limited.

unlike corrupt or idiotic ( its either one or the other) peaceniks , decision makers that matter in foreign countries can see the clear difference between closed terrorist ltte and open democratically elected sri lankan government even if they don't like gosl for other reasons.

to anyone who evaluates the situation here from a pragmatic point of view as well as moral point of view, without prejudices (esp. racist ones like, "ltte is fighting for tamils", "tamils support terrorists"- positions all peaceniks adopt and when questioned try to avoid commenting on - ask them and see how they run from them ) there shouldn't be any doubt. foreign government who want to do 'the right thing' or act in their own own (rather limited as far as sl in concerned) interests, or both, will either support gosl, or stay out, or support gosl and pretend to stay out ( as is the case with indian one due domestic politics there).

but peacniks will day dream on and continue to live in their fantasy world.

all that is rather old, but here is something new. (for those who want to think about these things just in case.)

if this daydream ever comes true and foreigners coerce the gosl to accept a foreign intervention disregarding the democratic rights and will of sri lankans, or failing that engage in further acts of coercion such as sanctions to make gosl submit, resistance to that both passive and active (even violent), on the part of all sri lankans whether individually or collectively, is completely justified. and imo that resistance (even violent ones) should also justifiably target those who advocated and then in all probability will also collaborate with that intervention and coercion.

i will write on that in more detail later when i have the time. after all there is no hurry. bc imo this intervention is just another unrealistic daydream of the peaceniks. and everyone is free to day dream and even lobby . this argument will really matter only if it become reality.

france and england through, what fun !

now we need only fiji and argentina (even scotland will do though) to get through to make this a truly upsetting but highly pleasurable rugby word cup.
if anyone wants to see nz, aus, or sa, win, go watch a match any other day.

susanthika to get an olympic silver?

marion jones winner of sydney olympics 200m sprint has pleaded guilty (just a hour or two ago) to steroid use in 2000. she is likely to lose her gold medal for that event along with her other 2 gold medals and 2 bronze medals. our own susanthika jayasinghe won the bronze medal in 2000. so her medal is likely to get upgraded to silver.


as always past catches up with frauds and hypocrites.
