Climate change delegates sign petition to ban water


 
 
 



Climate change delegates sign petition to ban water

Advertisement
December 9, 2010

What would it take to get a petition signed at a conference on global warming?

As students from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) found, not much. Believe it or not, the substance that fills the Spokane River and all of the lakes in north Idaho was the subject of a petition presented to attendees at the Cancun Climate Change summit.

And what might that substance be? It is known as the best solvent on earth, and it has been proven to eat through rock and corrode metal.

The CFACT students used the name "Dihydrogen Monoxide", but we all know it as H2O, or water.

What makes this story scary is that delegates at the summit actually signed the petition.

CFACT writes:

It was designed to show that if official U.N. delegates could be duped by college students into banning water, that they could essentially fall for anything, including pseudo-scientific studies which claim to show that global warming is man-caused.

Or that obesity is caused by global warming, or that the industrialized world needs World War 2-style rationing and 20 years of zero economic growth.

But, if one adds a few scary sound bites and a scientific-sounding name, environmental activists will sign on. CFACT adds:

Despite the apparently not-so-obvious reference to H2O, almost every delegate that collegian students approached signed their petition to ban that all too dangerous substance, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, is the major substance in acid rain, and is fatal if inhaled.

Anthony Watts notes that one would think with all the education these delegates have, at least one would realize what they were signing. Sadly, though, that was not the case.

Another petition, entitled "Petition to Set a Global Standard" was designed to cripple the United States for refusinig to adopt the Kyoto Protocol. CFACT wrote:

The petition went so far as to encourage the United Nations to impose tariffs and trade restrictions on the U.S. in a scheme to destabilize the nation's economy. Specifically, the scheme seeks to lower the U.S. GDP by 6% over a ten year period, unless the U.S. signs a U.N. treaty on global warming.

CFACT noted that left wing environmentalists scrambled to sign this petition.

All of which proves that those who would cripple the West under the guise of "environmentalism" and "saving the planet" are little more than educated idiots with a grudge against the United States and the Western world.

Video of the signing can be seen at the CFACT web site, here.

Re: Al Gore applauds Reddit's decision to ban critics of man-made global warm...

Weather patterns are cyclical, we have periods of hot and cold ... the last mini-Ice Age was in the late 18th through early 19th century. I think the basic problem with the way people on both sides of the "global warming" issue is that they look at too small a sample of data ... I can say that in my 55 years of life weather here in the NY/NJ area has gotten more extreme .. is that a natural cycle ... has the cycle been speeded up post-industrial Revolution??? Impossible to say, ultimately, I am all for less pollution, so however you get there, it can't be bad for the planet in the long run!!!

Goodbye free speech: Former Vice President Al Gore estatic Reddit banned critics of global warming
Zoom in
December 17, 2013

It seems liberals these days have no real use for the whole concept of free speech. On Tuesday, former Vice President Al Gore applauded Reddit's decision to ban those who disagree with the idea of man-made global warming from its science forum.

"Climate deniers can no longer spread disinformation on @Reddit's science forum," Gore tweeted, citing an article at Grist.

According to volunteer moderator Nathan Allen, the reason for banning those who might disagree is simple: They're stupid, they engendered heated discussion and get their information from blogs and Fox News.

Moreover, he added, those who disagree with him and his ilk are "not capable of providing the science to support their 'skepticism' on climate change."

He also accused so-called "deniers" of being funded by the fossil fuel industry without offering any real evidence:

"Over and over, solid peer-reviewed science was insulted as corrupt, while blog posts from fossil-fuel-funded groups were cited as objective fact. Worst of all, they didn't even get the irony of quoting oil-funded blogs that called university scientists biased."

The answer, he added, was "proactive moderation." In other words, only those who agree with him would be allowed on the forum.

The result, he said, was a "change in the culture within the comments." That, of course, is natural, since Allen has ensured that only one side of the issue can be discussed.

But Allen wasn't finished.

He also suggested newspapers take the same action, ensuring that only one side of the climate change issue be presented.

"So if a half-dozen volunteers can keep a page with more than 4 million users from being a microphone for the antiscientific, is it too much to ask for newspapers to police their own editorial pages as proficiently?" he asked.

While such censorship was all the rage in dictatorships like the former Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, it's an alien concept in the United States where free speech is celebrated.

A number of people took Gore and Reddit to task for the comments, Twitchy said.

"Banning different views? I'm not sure," one person tweeted.

"That's the only way you can win a debate," another person added.

Ironically, Allen claimed that "as a site, Reddit is passionately dedicated to free speech."

"Could've fooled us," the staff at Twitchy said.

Double standards: Obama made the same neo-Nazi gesture as Tony Parker

by Dr. Eowyn

Breitbart.com reports, Dec. 30, 2013, that the Jewish human rights group Simon Wiesenthal Center is demanding an apology from San Antonio Spurs superstar point guard Tony Parker for "repeatedly making a neo-Nazi hand gesture:

As a leading sports figure on both sides of the Atlantic, Parker has a special moral obligation to disassociate himself from a gesture that the government of France has identified as anti-Semitic.

Here are 4 images of Parker and teammate Boris Diaw, a Frenchman, making the offensive gesture:

Tony Parker

The offensive hand gesture is called the "Quenelle" gesture--a right arm extended towards the ground, palm opened and the other one bent across his chest touching his right upper arm. The gesture has been labelled as a "reversed Nazi salute," made famous a few years ago by Dieudonné, a French comedian from African background who is under fire in France for his repeated use of the symbol.

Haven't we seen the Quenelle neo-Nazi salute before, in one of FOTM's caption contests?

Here it is:

beyoncejayzobamanothereforthem

Why isn't the Simon Wiesenthal Center demanding an apology from Obama, Jay Z, and Beyoncé (I don't know who the other guy is) for making the same neo-Nazi racist salute that Tony Parker made?

Stinking "liberals" and their stinking double standards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does Obamacare call for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning?

by Dr. Eowyn

Death-Panel

Nancy Pelosi famously said in 2009 that "we must pass it [Obamacare] in order to find out what's in it."

Since the passage of the unAffordable Care Act, every day Americans are finding out the horrible things that are "in it" -- taxes, higher health insurance premiums, cancellations of healthcare plans, loss of the doctors we like, all of which are contrary to what Pres. Lucifer had blithely promised.

So it's understandable that our suspicions are now on high alert, bracing ourselves for more "surprises" to come while fearing the worst.

The other day, Dec. 29, 2013, FOTM commenter Tina wrote this alarming comment:

his so called obamacare, is in 150 diff languages so far. There is a medical code calling for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning ….

Another commenter James Mappy , who says he's a 17-year Medical Claims Examiner for one of the top 2 HMOs in Minnesota, seconded Tina that indeed there is such a code. It is 2012 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978: Legal execution.  Mappy states "I verify that this ICD9 code is [...] accurate."

So what is ICD?

It is the World Heath Organization's International Classification of Diseases.

From Wikipedia:

The International Classification of Diseases (also known by the abbreviation ICD) is the United Nations-sponsored World Health Organization's "standard diagnostic tool for epidemiology, health management and clinical purposes." The ICD is designed as a health care classification system, providing a system of diagnostic codes for classifying diseases, including nuanced classifications of a wide variety of signs, symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury or disease. This system is designed to map health conditions to corresponding generic categories together with specific variations, assigning for these a designated code, up to six characters long. Thus, major categories are designed to include a set of similar diseases.

The International Classification of Diseases is published by the World Health Organization (WHO) and used worldwide for morbidity and mortality statistics,reimbursement systems, and automated decision support in health care. This system is designed to promote international comparability in the collection, processing, classification, and presentation of these statistics. As in the case of the analogous (but limited to mental and behavioral disorders) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM, currently in version 5), the ICD is a major project to statistically classify health disorders, and provide diagnostic assistance. [...] The ICD is revised periodically and is currently in its tenth revision. [...]

What is ICD-9-CM?

From Wikipedia:

International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) is an adaption created by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and used in assigning diagnostic and procedure codes associated with inpatient, outpatient, and physician office utilization in the United States. The ICD-9-CM is based on the ICD-9 but provides for additional morbidity detail. It is updated annually on October 1.

Anyone can look up ICD-9-CM by going on the ICD9data website, which calls itself "The Web's Free 2014 Medical Coding Reference" that:

takes the official 2006-2014 ICD-9-CM and HCPCS coding books and adds 5.3+ million links between codes. Combine that with a Google-powered search engine, drill-down navigation system and instant coding notes and it's easier than ever to quickly find the medical coding information you need. ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. 

What is ICD-9-CM Diagnostic Code E978?

On the aforementioned ICD9data.com website, the ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code numbers E000-E999 are for "Supplementary Classification Of External Causes Of Injury And Poisoning."

The 2013 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978 is "Legal execution".

This is how the website describes ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978:

ICD-9-CM E978 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare.

ICD-9-CM E978 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.

In an update for the year 2014, the ICD9data.com website says:

2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978 (Final Revision)

Legal execution

  • This is the final revision to ICD-9-CM E978.
  • Beginning October 1, 2014, use an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes) instead of E978.
  • Until then, ICD-9-CM E978 is considered a billable medical code and can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.

That same Diagnosis Code E978 is found on the website of the federal government's Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS.gov.

Together with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are the U.S. federal governmental agencies responsible for overseeing all changes and modifications to the ICD-9-CM. The CMS is located at 7500 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21244.

Here's a screenshot I took from CMS.gov (click to enlarge):

legal execution

This is how Wikipedia describes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), previously known as the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), is a federal agency within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with state governments to administer Medicaid, the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and health insurance portability standards. In addition to these programs, CMS has other responsibilities, including the administrative simplification standards from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), quality standards in long-term care facilities (more commonly referred to as nursing homes) through its survey and certification process, clinical laboratory quality standards under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments, and oversight of Healthcare.gov.

Indeed, on the CMS's "About" page, it lists the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov as one of the CMS's websites.

To conclude, while there is no medical code in Obamacare "calling for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning," there is a medical code (E978) for "legal execution."

We don't know what the term "legal execution" means, and we should all ask why the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (and therefore the Obamacare website that the CMS oversees) has a medical code for legal execution -- a medical code that "is considered a billable medical code and can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim."
