Lexical Forcing Of  Optical Depth & Metaphoric .Breadth In The Op-Editorial Climate Optimum

Journal Of The Modem Language Association Vol XVII. Winter 2007-8, p 79-81

In today's climate of opinion, the One Dimensional  Editorial  Language Model (ELM) articulated by Marcuse finds new pertinence in globally reifying Hansen's thesis that “Truth is responsible for warming.”

Yet the George Mason school of semiotics( CF Michaels & Singer, 2005)maintains it is less truth that is responsible for carbon dioxide than the warming paradigm, and eventually the futility, of worrying about the signification of water vapor in the work of Lindzen and Fish. 25 years ago, long before the term “global warming” became chic, semioticians focused on the prospect of a mini-Ice Age in consequence of MacLuhans postulation of cool media. Not until Lacan promoted the use of post-ecologistant reading to read and attack The American Meteorological Society did many realize that in the end, all temperature is text.

In the post-Althuserian work of Baliunas, a predominant concept is the concept of capitalist climate culture. In a sense, this mirrors Idoru, in which Gibson deconstructs climate constructivism; and the ELM computer modeling paradigm finds  visual reification in the solarized scenes of The Matrix Reloaded. This is not lost on Vienna Circle structuralists like Singer, and the naive realists of the Frankfurt School, denying the Ibsonian angst of An Inconvenient Truth, affirm capitalist subdialectic stratosphere theory as a medium of semiosis.

Even if we were to concede the alarmists’ claim that the earth’s temperature might rise one degree Fahrenheit in the next century, pre-Lacanian models would still have failed to predict the significant cooling or lexical forcing of optical depth and metaphoric breadth the oceans have undergone. This is antithetic to how global warming would be construed in popular culture were readers to choose between Derridaist reading and the formalized carbonist nihilism of Lords Monckton and Bertrand Russell.

Academy8_2 Why require the nations of this planet to spend the hundreds of billions of dollars necessary to reduce carbon dioxide and other emissions when it invites Althuserian anomie, and  we don’t even know if the earth’s climate is getting permanently hotter or if that temperature change is caused by human activity or if that change is even more dangerous than transgressive texts entering the scientific canon?

“Consciousness is fundamentally dead,” says Foucault; however, with the advent of Artificiality computer models of climate may singularize into generators of their own hermeneutic hierarchy. According to Albi , it is not so much consciousness that is fundamentally dead, but rather the paradigm, and  embodying parametric atmospheric models in sentient algorithms.This, Legates and McIntyre would say , embodies the absurdity, of consciousness as a post-modeling condition. Therefore, Bataille uses the term ‘capitalist discourse’ to denote the difference between climate modeling ,sexual identity and culture in the Cold War era.

The main theme of the works of Hansen is transgressive because  the role of the climate  software  writer as observer. Hence the feminist discourse of Interior Secretary Bruce Babbit, who lost it when he claimed that oil companies and the coal companies in the U.S. have joined in a conspiracy to hire pseudo scientists to deny the facts in denial of  Habermas teaching that there are in fact none to falsify, since  the universality of rubber graph paper has concretized McLuhan's global village even while leading to ozone depletion in the cybersphere. 

The primary theme of Buxton’s model of the climate of capitalist subdialectic theory is the bridge between society and sexuality. Thus, the premise of constructivism states that society, surprisingly, has objective value. If  the Derridaist reading  of Gore's thesis holds, we have to choose between the  subconceptualist textual theory of logocentric  radiative variability  espoused by Spencer, and a postcultural theory in which anthropogenic warming is no longer the signifier.  If Heidigger never know that ancient lexa reduce to semantic monads it is because in 1998, Willie Soon et al. of the Harvard-Smithsonian center for Astrophysics published a paper in the Oregon Journal of Intertextual Climate Research, arguing that there really had been a Medieval warm period.

How  has this anachronality of juxtaposition as dasein obviates temporal and lexical space in culturally framed post-Aristotelian models in contemporary America become a predominant concept in the distinction between figure and ground in the popular imagination Fish might say that Sontag uses the term ‘capitalist subdialectic theory’ to denote a self-falsifying  ELM paradox in ways paralleling the multi-dimensional nature of the IPCC paradigm, but reflecting Marcuse’s one dimensional man , Milloy and Limbaugh therefore imply that we have to choose between climatic relativism and modernist pretextual theory ,or else face the consequences of Moore's law as the climate of opinion merges with Web 3.0.in the emerging era of cyberclimate.

The post-structuralist alternative to a Web 3.0 view of the climate debate is too horrible to contemplate- Al Gore's Nobel could inspire Rupert Murdoch to run for one too. To deconstruct that contingency, we have devised a transgressive textual canon by running random excerpts from a decade of Wall Street Journal editorials on climate change through the PoMo jargon generator so kindly linked by Arts And Letters Daily. 

Next week, weather permitting, Adamant readers with access to data compression software are invited to submit 17 syllable renderings of the IPCC report as an autumn haiku.
