I don’t know why I find this funny, perhaps because it’s another one of Charles Johnson’s inane cut-n-paste jobs of articles and documents that he didn’t bother reading or couldn’t comprehend. Maybe we should do it Mark Levin style:
“CUT ONE. GO.”
“OKAY STOP. Holy crap. Who thought one of the biggest energy plants in the world, Plant Scherer, might produce carbon dioxide, the stuff that plants breathe? It’s coal-fired. Cheap energy. SO WHAT? They have scrubbers, and the clouds you see coming out of the reactors are steam. Water vapor. CO2 doesn’t even come close to doing the climate change dance that water vapor does, and the oceans are pros at it. The oceans beat out the jungles (I mean the rain forests) for methane generation, and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it.
“Guess where the coal comes from to run Plant Scherer? Wyoming! Why it’s not coming from Appalachia I don’t know. Has to do with economics. Okay, Go on…”
I can’t do Levin like Levin, but here’s what’s got Charles and others all squeevy. A draft of an unfinished report was leaked today entitled
and every blogger (including Charles Foster Johnson) who linked to it, apparently read it, checked out the the footnotes and quoted sources, and vetted it in under 10 hours. ALL 549 PAGES OF IT.
Nazi Germany named this process PapierKrieg.
P.S. Here are the direct links that Charles proffered:
Lisa Friedman is a one-note nutcase with mental myopia and a small weight problem.
Rip it up, me bloogs.

Recently we posted a graphic from web ranking site Alexa that shows Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs in steady and predictable decline. Today we realized that Alexa’s graph was a bit skewed for unknown reasons.
There is some oddness in that graph that we didn’t spot until today. The rows are not equal. They should be the the same between
<50k – 100k
<100k – 150k
<150k – 200k
<200k – 250k
but they’re not. Maybe it softens the blow to Johnson’s ego, but it’s not accurate. Here’s what we posted:
Here’s the same Alexa graph with the rows adjusted:
Don’t see it yet? How about a throbbing Alexa Graph?
What does this mean? It means that Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is tanking faster than even Alexa is willing to admit.
Rock on, Charles. We love ya, man.
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs got a spike in popularity a few months ago for unknown reasons, but it was short-lived. Might have been an echo from the POTUS inauguration, but that was then and this is this.
What happened after the spike in traffic in late January, and the crash of late May? Was it a self-promotion gimmick that kept it level for three months? I suppose it doesn’t matter, because Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is still on the predictable trajectory despite the graphic plateau. LGF fell off the mesa and is heading for The Mojave.
Last time we checked, LGF had a global rank of 168,689 and a US rank of 50,248. Rock on, Charles. You’re awesome.
Took a quick wade through The Swamp this afternoon, and there’s no “traditional July 4th open thread,” so let’s set The WayBack Machine to the Year of Our Lord 2011 and see what Our Hero was talking about.
Who’s up for some BBQ?
Marinate it overnight, then slather it in Barbie Sauce and throw it on the grill. Better yet, get someone else to cook it up for you, Charles, because you don’t barbecue fish.
We’ve seen his amazing photography before and this was one of the best of his banal and uninteresting collection. I rotated it to see if it might be more interesting, and when I did, I noticed that it’s missing some things – like fasteners, a hasp, and it’s not located on the wooden gate hinge point. That piece of hardware does nothing, and it hasn’t for years according to the rust stains because it’s been laying flat on someone’s porch deck for a while.
On the other hand, if you squint, it looks just like Charles Johnson’s brain.
