OK, waaayy too many posts for one day, but it’s one of those days when everything is happening.
I’ve just got to recommend this article:
It reads tight and clean, end to end. Has “grit” along with truth and humor. Just delicious.
I’ll quote a couple of lines, but not much as I don’t want to break the ‘flow’ of the actual article when you read it… and a bit out of order, too:
The environmentalists and the activists have had a tin ear and a surplus of righteousness from the beginning. But there’s something extravagantly out of key, even for them, in holding their great “Save the Planet” revival at Cancun — up to now famous for Spring Break and as a hangout for louche Hollywood types and cleavage researchers.
They’re toasting their pasty, righteous, caterwauling epidermi on the golden hot sands of Cancun, Mexico, flopped out amid the bikinis and barbeques while they attempt to spell out a future of rationing and want for all the rest of us. Flown there on taxpayer or foundation money, meeting up with all their buddies from the bust that was Cophenhagen, the grim, grey priesthood of “sustainable” living are convening in one of the great sybaritic strips of the entire Western world. The monks are in the cathouse.
But hey, if you’re going to do Armageddon — do it in Cancun. The Apocalypse at the All You Can Eat Buffet. Parasailing to Armageddon.
Cleavage Researchers? Monks are in the Cathouse? Yes, it’s that good!
UPDATE: I’m adding this picture just to save everyone from ‘clicking through’ in the comment:
Cannot restrain from a comment!
Love the humour, cleavage researchers- he he!
The AGW scientists might be better equipped (sorry about that word) to study the obvious staring them in the face, than to waste time and money on fallible computer programs and creative accounting of temperature records.
I am happy to accept that the use of current short term temperature variations is potentially as risky for us ‘doubters’ as it is for the AGW advocates, but the evidence is coming on thicker and faster and is extremely encouraging for us, not to feel smug just yet, but to feel extremely comfortable with our beliefs.
Wonderful posts, all.
“Annual Winter break” for the AGW advocates. Party until the gravy train runs out. Only 25 months left to the end of their world. This may be the next to the last party for them. pg
As my Dad used to like to say, if some of these clowns got their ashes hauled a bit more frequently maybe they’d settle down and leave the rest of us alone.
Sorry if this wanders a bit far from the stream.
Last year after Climategate broke Mr. Murphy had this to say on the Canadian version of the Beeb, CBC, about the event:
From 3 years ago his take on Environmentalism:
And 2 years ago on Ethanol:
This is a good reminder for the fact that these people are very persistent, care not about the truth or the damage they inflict. Today we read the US is 25th in world performance in high school level math testing. Every physics lecture at Stanford begins with a five to 15 minute indoctrination on an “environmental” topic with most lies. 100 million died for lies on DDT. Every home has a time bomb in the kitchen thanks to the demonization of Freon(tm). Two to four billion people will starve to death if the “Greens” successfully cut us back to the power levels of 1865, as planned.

“a surplus of righteousness”: amen.
I’m sure there are many of us willing to study this further, and avow that ‘more research is needed.’
However the big question on everyone’s lips is ‘Does it have anything to do with this report’ –
And straight from Cancun a graphic to explain it all…
Sir, I must protest! If you read the article is says that many of the tits that are out so early are, in fact BLUE tits. I don’t think it takes a NASA scientist to point out that blue tits emerging earlier may well be colder, and not warmer.
As a skeptic I must say, the subject is NOT settled and tits, both great and blue, are not evidence of Global Warming!
(I’m beginning to regret starting this… ;-)
I think I’ll add that to the posting… ;-)
EM you might want to peruse the Daily Bayonet every now and then.
They even provide a link to The List of all the things AGW causes:
There is over 800 things listed and each of them is link posts and articles where the claim is made.
Cancun sun speeds the decay of the of global warming charade.
And suddenly there is the Gore effect to push it over the cliff
Cancún unfortunately is not the only place where cold records are broken.
An increasing number of cold records broken today date back before the year 1850, the year that marks the end of the Little Ice Age (1300-1850)
So here we have “Different Planets”
And while in the UK and Scotland the elderly, no longer in a position to pay their heating and power bills ride the busses just to stay warm, the UK Government presents this lunatic proposal:
We are quickly arriving in a situation where the contrast of the virtual world of Global Warming politics and the real world are so big that the position of our wise leaders becomes……………
It truly is the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
