Global Warming Froze My Palm Tree

Precisely zero people give a shit about Global Warming anymore, which explains how this sentence, “The not-so-obvious short answer is that the overall warming of the atmosphere is actually creating cold-weather extremes,” was able to be written, reviewed by an editor, and deemed worthy of publication.

The article, whose thesis plumbs the depths of Newspeak to deliver the thesis:  Warm is Cold™, has been refuted here, better than I could.

A few things to think about though when considering Global Warming, or Climate Change, or Global Climate Disruption or whatever the fuck these commies are calling it:

1)  It’s not science, it’s statistics.

2) Stats lie

3) See rule 2

Oh, and I feel for you guys stuck in the snowmaggedon up north, but if you’d just stop driving your SUVs you’d be warm, like Tampa, Florida.  30 is warm, right?

  1. This doesn’t look like a HHD poat.

    Wait. waitaminute.

    Do we HAVE one today?

    I can get on it if need be, IYKWIMAITTYD

  2. Global Climate Change must be real. Otherwise, the public servants at EPA would have had no reason to stomp wildly on the sovereignty of Texas. http://tinyurl.com/283daro

  3. This is a time tiller. That GIF was slowing everything down. I don’t know if Roamy has an HHD planned, but I thought I remember her trowing someone the keys last week?

  4. From last thread:

    I have the morning shift with the boys, and the evening shift, which isn’t really over until 9pm-10pm, and work from 8 to 5, add 2 hours a day for the commute to and from, and it adds up to…..nope.

    My husband works from 6 till 6 and often doesn’t get home until 7:30. He doesn’t have kid duty (sometimes he eats and goes to bed) but when he does have time he likes to hang with the family.

    I told him he needs to get a treadmill for work. He has a gym not to far from one of his offices. He simply needs to find a way to make it happen. Has to.

    Pre-diabetic, high blood pressure, sleep apnea.

    He’s been sorta dieting for a while and lost some weight. He HATES the word diet. Just makes him pissy. So, he’s “eating healthy.” Lots of Middle East food. Also, he’s figured out why he gets hungry, and tried to avoid creating that situation.

  5. Sounds like what he needs is to walk 18 holes twice a week. Relaxing exercise, good for the soul, etc.

  6. Lots of Middle East food.

    Why not just cut out the middle man and throw that food directly into the toilet?

  7. Why not just cut out the middle man and throw that food directly into the toilet?

    By not processing it through the alimentary canal, you deprive the other family members of enjoying it, too.

  8. What do you guys have against ME food? I lurve it.

  9. Ha ha ha … who air kisses their WIFE?

  10. Ha ha ha … who air kisses their WIFE?

    Part of the pre-nup was that Michelle be given no opportunity to gnaw his face off. Neil Abercrombie told me. He was there.

    I don’t have anything against it, but it can clean you out in a hurry.

    Best comment from the article you linked:

    “Kwaanza is a holiday for white liberals, not blacks.”

  13. I would venture that Festivus is celebrated by at least 25 times as many people as Kwanzaa. The Airing of Grievances has far more cultural attractiveness than a day dedicated to African Colonial Marxist Economics.

    I dun’t have that problem. Chicken with hummus is my favorite. And kibbee. Yum.

    And those fattosh salads. OMG.

  15. To be quite honest, if I had fucked up and married that beast, I’d be trying to mail it in on the intimate moments as well.

  16. did I tell you folks I’m reading “Looking Backward”? It’s a utopian novel written in 1887. Progressive dream. People ate this shit up when it was written.

    Everything – even down to the food – is centrally planned.

  17. I counted eight turds there, HS. I think there’s only supposed to be seven.

  18. I’m wearing a new shirt.

  19. Everything – even down to the food – is centrally planned.

    Go on….

  20. I counted eight turds there, HS. I think there’s only supposed to be seven.

    One broke. 😦

  21. One broke. 😦

    Oh. My bad. That one symbolizes the family.

  22. I’m reading “Looking Backward”?

    Hmmmm. Sounds good, I’ll have to check it out. I finished “Brave New World”, which was pretty good.

  23. Yep, you see it. I mean, with the “food lunch” program expanding to serve breakfast and meals dinner the summer.

    Apparently, according to the novel, that centrally planning food (from production to distribution) results in both cheaper and BETTER! food.

    And then came Mao.

    Ha ha ahaa haaaa …

    Of course, Stalin also did that gig up pretty well.

  24. I don’t know how “good” it is. It is interesting. It really sparked off the movement. It was, apparently, a huge best seller.

    Jeff Goldstein has been mentioning it a lot lately, so I thought I’d give it a read.

  25. I’m reading:

    http://www.amazon.com/Autobiography-Mark-Twain-Vol-1/dp/0520267192/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1293631334&sr=1-1

    It’s been 100 years since he died, and his wishes were that it not be published until now.

  26. It just occurred to me that Kwanzaa and Global Warming are the same thing.

  27. I’m reading “Fall of The Giants” by Follett. Not as deep as what you intellectuals are reading, but interesting and satisfying.

  28. The header pic is classic! One of my favorite movies!

    “And pork bellies, which are used to make bacon, which you might find in a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.”

    Deadpan look.

    It was the Dukes!

  29. PG, I’ve been eyeing that book, wondering if it was gonna be a good one.

    Have you read Pillars of the Earth? That was a good one, and the miniseries on Starz (?) was pretty good, too.

  30. It just occurred to me that Kwanzaa and Global Warming are the same thing.

    Kwanzaa can actually be observed and replicated, though both were political ploys meant to replace the prevailing culture. In the end, Ronald “M-Dog” Karenga has proven to have more staying power than the scientific communities of Europe.

  31. The sequel to Pillars of the Earth was World Without End. Both were good reads in my judgment – then I like books about building.

    In the non-fiction department I recommend Higher, and The Devil In The White City.

  32. J@Ames, I’ve read pillars 3 or 4 times. I rarely re-read a book.

  33. New poat.

    Sorry MJ, but it’s HHD, and the show must go on.
