Climate Change is a Touchy Subject

Published March 30th, 2017 by Bobby Henderson

Trump’s Whitehouse is pushing its science officials to shut up about Climate Change, reports Politico:

A supervisor at the Energy Department’s international climate office told staff this week not to use the phrases “climate change,” “emissions reduction” or “Paris Agreement” in written memos, briefings or other written communication, sources have told POLITICO.

I’ve got mixed feelings about this since we Pastafarians are also skeptical about accepted causes of Climate Change. Years ago you’ll remember that we found a statistically significant relationship between the rise in average global temperature and the declining Pirate population.

I’ll note that even after 10 years, this data still has not been dis-proven by the science community, which we interpret as implicit acceptance of it’s Truth.

So we’re sympathetic to Team Trump’s misgivings of Established Science based on “evidence” and “peer-review” and so on.

But, we’re also fans of not needlessly destroying the planet. And while we may not agree with the causes of Climate change, we believe it is happening.

More, we Pastafarians are pragmatic. Even if you have some skepticism about Climate Change (perhaps all that data is being altered by a Supernatural being of some sort) — let’s maybe err on the side of reigning in pollution and old wasteful technologies with their excess CO2 production — and instead let’s support emerging technologies which can provide clean, renewable power. Not to mention jobs.

For this reason, I think Team Trump and the GOP are acting like tools.

Again, I hate to mention politics on our Church site, but I felt that we Pastafarians, as fellow science-skeptics, should say something.

What do you guys think?

    No need to worry. The Flying Spaghetti Monster is watching over us. He wouldn’t let anything bad happen to our beautiful planet.

      Oskar, you idiot, the FSM does not exist, so there will be no intervention to stop planetary oblivion.

      Disabled toilet.

          Don’t forget the concrete boots, Tony.

    The Alfie troll network moves now to destroy the FSM.

  3. Mr. Hankey says:

    Mr. Hankey has connections in all of the wrong places, and, is also able to administer truth-serum suppositories, compelling vile trolls to identify themselves. Doubleday is a fat, sweaty, chain-smoking, scrap-metal scavenger. Obviously, providing his e-mail address would be pointless, but, UK laws prohibit religious hatred, or, using a carriage service to harass. I suspect his local newspaper may like to promote his business services.

    Thank you Mr. Hankey, I Googled Richard Doubleday, 51, Upton, and got hundreds of references to the idiotic and vile Trollope. He was, allegedly, stupid enough to also abuse his own town-folk, using hundreds of proxy servers, without realising that all were easily traced to one IP address and a GPS location within a few metres of his cess-pit, by a forensic computer analyst.
    It’s reported by his neighbours that he is a fat bufoon, serial business failure, who even, allegedly, harasses terminally-sick women. His name and cess-pit’s address was published in the public’s interest and his prosecution is pending. Let’s hope he does jail time. However, as an obsessive, narcissistic, psychopath, I suspect his fingers still twitch when near a keyboard.
    Rest In Piss, Trollope…… Disabled toilet!

    • Keith says:

      Yes, that is pretty much what I got when I googled it too. It is the first time I have come across a troll doxing himself (unless someone posted under the moniker “Patroller”).

      • Captain Birdseye says:

        Keith, you may remember that he invited Rasputin to meet up, implying that his identity was not confidential. Obviously, he wishes to socialise with Pastafarians, to remember the good times we’ve had, and provided his details for all of the postal invitations.
        His favourite activity is impersonating others, which consents, in a privately owned blog, for others to treat him the same way. Also, his details have been published in hundreds of places already, allegedly, in the public’s interest, to warn women to avoid him and his residence.
        Apparantly, he has forced many blogs to close, allegedly, out of spite because his own attempts have all been serial failures. Check out his pathetic troll video game on YouTube, listed under his correct name.
        Disabled toilet…….

  5. Rasputin says:

    This particular troll might not be the “Doubleday” dude. As for meeting the troll, it’s not to my taste to meet with strange weirdos in disabled toilets.

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Rasputin, this particular Richard Doubleday, Upton, GPS location within a few metres of his IP address, uses the identical abusive style and names and signs off with ‘disabled toilet’. Of course, a burglar, lodger or visitor may have been using his computer and location, daily, for the last four years without his knowledge.
      The information comes from some of his victims, particularly, Head Rambles, Long Rider and ISAC, amongst many others, one of whom employed a forensic computer analyst. Apparantly, the hundreds of proxy server addresses he was using are easily stripped away and a ping-back request nailed his computer and location. So much for his boasts of being un-trackable.

      In the interest of good humor and to remind Brits of the importance of enabled toilets I want to remind them of a Victorian who contributed greatly to their enabling: Thomas Crapper. Let not your hearts be troubled by the malignant bluster of whatsisname. Only enablers will finally dwell in the shadow of the Beer Volcano!!! R’Amen! The

    It’s amazing how much intelligence and knowledge resides in our extended community. We’ve got deeply-knowledgeable experts in every field. It’s like accounts I’ve read about POW camps in WW2. Imprison a few thousand servicemen with too much time on their hands, and you’ll have a plenty of forgers, tailors, engineers, miners and linguists to prepare for escapes. Open any topic of discussion and you guys and gals are all over it.
    I would expect the intelligence of Pastafarians is greater than the average. Which makes me wonder how I got here.

  7. Jaakko says:

    If pastafarism increases toleration, logically it would also reduce the catastrophic effects of anthropogenic CO2 movement.

    I believe anything that may cause my alcoholic drinks to be slightly warmer than ten years ago MUST be stopped .

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Todd, that may include taking longer to find your fridge.
