"At the home of a prominent warmist"


"Somewhere behind this wall of snow outside the White House windows is Barack Obama, working on his plan to stop the planet from getting so warm." -- Andrew Bolt Blog

Your Say

Global Warming can do everything - it is also a floor wax and a dessert topping!

Global warming is making me lose my hair.

Repeat after me, children: "Weather is not the same as climate,"

That has to be at once the most cliched and the least smart thing you've ever posted here. We expect more.

Want me to expand on that, Vanderleun? I thought it was rather good shorthand. A week, or a month, or even a season, or even maybe a year, of cold weather in one particular place does not constitute global cooling. For many reasons, this sort of thing can happen; random fluctuations, the El Nino cycle, volcanic eruptions...
In fact, one of the possible consequences for my country of global warming might be the climate of NW Europe including Britain turning into something like that of Labrador, as increased calving of glaciers from Greenland turns off the North Atlantic Drift. In such a case, global warming would look to Britons more like a return half way to an Ice Age than warming at all.
Freak weather events are simply irrelevant to any discussion of AGW. Unless, that is, they start getting more frequent on a timescale of decades.

Really now, Fletcher, you're just being intentionally boring. Please amend your ways.
