Candidate Number One: John Moore

Tuesday, April 24 - John Moore's "CounterPoint" in the National Post receives the Windbag Award #1!
  1. Question: What qualifies John Moore to even make any comments on global warming? Surely he has not fallen victim to the Hollywood-syndrome that is evidenced by those celebrities who think because they ARE celebrities they know everything about everything? What research has he done? Surely he doesn't think that his verbal journalism achievements are scientific?
  2. His whole article appears to be a frontman attempt to thrust himself in the limelight to become Canada's next Liberal leader after Dion.
  3. He comments that "Doing nothing is always cheap" and I would agree and add that "Saying nothing is cheaper". No matter how many words you use to say it, if you have no qualifications on a topic, omit truth from one's rhetoric, and proceed to deny the attempts of the Conservative government to get a responsible energy bill passed, then you are a truth-denier! And saying nothing in many words can be a cause of global warming! All that hot air should be harnessed to run our "Windbag Generator" which would make a positive attempt to provide Canada with a clean NEW energy source!
  4. It would be interesting to hear how John explains the highest temperature recorded in North America was in Death Valley, California in 1913. How many cars and factories contributed to the 134-degree temperature then John? [Reference:National Climatic Data Center: http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/globalextremes.html#hightemp. Just curious!]
  5. And of course, we must all realize that the boats trapped in ice of the coast of Newfoundland is a result of massive ice melting in the North Atlantic!
  6. Added July 2007 - Just HAD TO add this comment that I heard during the last election from John on his CFRB show. Of course it is not a quote but the IDEA IS THE SAME. He asked the question of his radio audience, "Should the Pope be allowed to make comments on political topics?" [My response: HEY JOHN, DO YOU KNOW THE DEFINITION OF DEMOCRACY? I thought you believed in FREEDOMS? Why should the Pope SHUT UP, YOU DON'T! Perhaps the question should be re-phrased, "Should John Moore be allowed to make comments about religion when he is a self-declared atheist? Isn't part of being an atheist admitTing that you know nothing about a God?" If that is true, then should you be allowed to make comments on things you know nothing about? [Oh! Oh! Sorry Hollywood! You can say anything you want, especially if it is in your area of expertise, FANTASY!"]
