I Am Tired of the Fraud

| September 22, 2018

Yesterday, a report showed up on one of the weather-related websites that the people of various towns in the province of in Alberta have received snowfalls and the temperature was hovering around 1C (about 32F).

There was also the news that one of Iceland’s nastier volcanoes appears to be preparing to give the whole planet what-for, because the volcano’s last eruption was in fact 100 years ago, and is long overdue.

Meantime, the head of IPCC is being chastised for his overuse of luxury travel, jetting from one conference to another, from one important meeting to another, and for the “size” of  his carbon ‘footprint’, never mind his excessive expenditures. In addition, people in the fields of weather and climate are being blocked from meetings that they would normally be able go to, if they have the temerity to question the “belief” system that has become a blatant  attempt to gain control of governments and make them fall in line behind this twaddle.

This idiocy has, through the auspices of the IPCC, become an expensive and sometimes fatal burden on taxpayers who have no say in the matter, and cannot afford to pay their heating and electric bills in Europe, never mind pay for food, thanks to Angela Merkel’s fumbling attempts to control what ordinary citizens in Europe are allowed to do to simply survive brutal winters.

The people in charge of this hogwash are arrogant enough to not give a flying fart in space who suffers for their self-centered cupidity. They don’t have to give a shit. They are, somehow, better.

Well, no, they aren’t. They aren’t better than anyone else. They don’t suffer in the winter, nor do they have to try to choose between food and heat, especially if the ‘heat’ in question is generated by natural gas, a forbidden product. It is so bad in Europe now, especially in Germany, that new coal-fired power plants are being built. Merkel[‘s asinine control freakishness is not in her favor. When Brexit takes place, that will be the chink in the weakening dam, although Theresa May is still facing some opposition from people who are afraid of being independent of the E.U. And we saw someone’s take on that earlier this week.

The people who are responsible for making these abominably stupid decisions that are detrimental to the very people they supposedly govern are not the kind who will go to a marsh late in an October evening to watch the geese and ducks coming in to land for the night. They don’t produce anything of any use to anyone. They have repeatedly revised and moved the “projected” dates for whatever disaster they deem will occur, so that by the time the goal comes and is passed, they’re dead and no longer responsible for the con job they’ve been foisting on people for many years.

However, if you disagree with them, and question their chokehold on climate science and the despicable crap that says ‘the world is drastically heating up’ when it ain’t, you are likely to not only be ostracized, but also lose your grants and possibly your position in the field. This is no longer ‘publish or perish’. It is ‘convert or perish’, which means the end of your career if you refuse.

Remember when I said ‘Do NOT go medieval on my ass!’? Well, that is exactly what is happening now, mostly in Europe. This is as medieval as you can get. It is happening here, also.

And do these jerks sitting on their pedestals care about the general populace or what really does happen? No, they do not. They only care about how much cash and support they can con out of the naïve and gullible and uninformed.

The newest claim is that Atlantic hurricane numbers are up, when in fact, records show that they are down. This is why it is bullshit.  It is a con job, a con game and has always been that and nothing more. And our tax money has been going into this charade for far too long.

Pres. Trump has already slashed climate change funding to the UN, to put that money to work here at home where it is needed.

If these anxious con artists think they’ll miss out on their luxury travel and lodging accommodations in places like Davros, Switzerland, that’s just a damned shame. They’ll can go hit up Soros for cash. Our money belongs here at home.

And yes, migration started very early this month, because it is getting cold up there in the Great Frozen North. Why is it cold earlier than usual? Hudson’s Bay did not melt out until late in July.  The so-called Northwest Passage, and access to it, did not clear out this past summer, and students who rented a Russian ship to go see how much “warming” was going on got stuck in the ice.  In addition, we’re in a solar minimum now and have been for some time. The next solar cycle, Cycle 25 was supposed to start months ago and has not. The Sun’s surface is as blank as an egg, no sunspots, but the occasional hole in the corona appears on magnetograms.

If, as I mentioned yesterday, Iceland’s queen bitch volcano Katla decides to blow – and like any female with a bulging belly, she is long overdue – she may produce nastier and more damaging damaging effects, such as volcanic fog and a volcanic winter, never mind shutting down Iceland’s hydropower system. And the effect of this? Yes, it will go worldwide, and it will happen, regardless.

    Got a source for both those claims? NOAA has a good webpage here showing that there isn’t a discernible uptick yet in hurricanes in the Atlantic, but that it’s likely the ones that do happen will be more intense. There’s a bunch of other nuanced science in there, too:


    It’s almost as if the people who study these things have a better understanding than the reporters who write articles, and yes, even the zealots with an agenda. In fact, it’s almost a bit like how reporting on gun crimes makes everything an AR-15 and accuracy be damned!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      You should learn to read for comprehension, LC.

      I said: The newest claim is that Atlantic hurricane NUMBERS are up, when in fact, records show that they are down.

      I said NOTHING about intensity.

      Plain English and you still don’t get it.

      • LC says:

        I said NOTHING about intensity.

        I didn’t say you did – my comment, and the link I provided, primarily talk about numbers. They aren’t saying there’s fewer though.

        The intensity just factors in because when the numbers stay the same but the intensity kicks up, there’s a problem.

        Plain math and you still don’t get it.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Numbers? NUMBERS?????

        NOAA changes their mind about numbers with whatever beer foam blows into their face.

        Here’s what NOAA predicted on June 1st:
        Named storms: 10 to 16
        Hurricanes: 5 to 9
        Major hurricanes: 1 to 4

        Got that part so far??

        Albert, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto and Gordon were ALL tropical storms. Gordon, in fact, blew right up along the Mississippi River’s path and dumped a good load of rain in my area, but nothing nearly as bad as flooding two years ago, which was NOT hurricane/TS related.

        Not having any luck with their predictions, NOAA pulled back, regrouped and tried again on 8/12/2018 with this forecast:

        Named storms: 9 to 13
        Hurricanes: 4 to 7
        Major hurricanes: o to 2

        Major hurricanes: Florence, which briefly reach Cat 5 and then fizzled to a drizzle at Cat 1 when making landfall last week.
        Neither Helene nor Isaac is interested in making landfall on the US.

        And since Accuweather goes into hysterics if there is so much as a bit of drizzle, and we have videos of goofballs like that numbskull reporter Anderson Cooper standing in a ditch while his camera crew is up on land with a half inch of water and two people walk PAST him in a half in ch of water, do you REALLY expect me to take ANYTHING NOAAS or any of them say seriously?

        They change their minds with whichever way the wind blows. They lie about the volume of rain that fell. They exaggerate every weather report they come up with.

        Do you REALLY expect me to take these people seriously???? DO YOU??

        For YOUR information, James Hansen altered NOAA’s raw data to meet his agenda. Now he’s retired and no one gives a shit about what he said or thought. 40 years ago, we were supposed to be in the middle of an ice age by now. Well, we aren’t and won’t be unless Katla starts it – which IS possible.

        The so-called MEAN temperature is a 0.10C rise every 10 years.

        Are you REALLY going to refer to something you can’t even feel as a threat? Because if that is how you think, you’re as much a nitwit as the crackpots who demand obeisance and conformity or your career is in the toilet.

        If you think that’s all just hunky dory, then you haven’t got a clue.

    • desert says:

      How about the weather reporter, on his knees on a sidewalk so it looked like he was up to his waist in water, when someone walks behind him and its only ankle deep! Bas=ards have NO HONOR, no integrity, no morals and if it were up to me NO JOBS!

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        How about the girlie “reporter” paddling a canoe in an inch of water while people splashed past her in front of the camera?

        The credibility of this bunch is sliding rapidly.

    • rgr769 says:

      Yeah, LC, I did extensive research for paper I wrote in 1975 on future energy resources. Virtually everything I read said we “likely” would run out of oil in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s.

      • 26Limabeans says:

        Peak Oil! I remember reading it in National Geographic. Devoted the entire issue to it.
        Nice photos. Love to view them. But every damn issue is laced with global warming and politics.

    They are Borg. You must assimilate. Resistance is futile! You’ve been paying taxes for what, 40-50 + years now? Keep stacking it up, they’ll tell you when they got enough.

  3. SGT Fon says:

    never mind the EU, last year it cost me around 3 k to heat with fuel oil with an additional 1200 in wood, although i only burned about 8 of the 10 cords…

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Doesn’t that illustrate a clear difference between natural gas and what you are using for heating fuels?

      My gas bill includes what I use for cooking as well as for heating. My gas usage bill went down a bit after I put a new blower motor in the furnace. Hope it stays that way.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Heating with wood? Warms you twice, they say. Three times if you have to lug it to the pickup.

    • Steve1371 says:

      Sgt Fon, thats a hell of a lot of btu’s! Maybe you could offer to recycle all of your neighbors plastic and bald tires to replace some of that fuel oil and wood.Where the hell do you live, Siberia?

    • 26Limabeans says:

      Dats a lot.
      I burned wood for many years when I had a woodlot and my own machine.
      Now I heat with electricity for 10 cents per killowatt hour bottom line.
      Cheaper than anything else by far.
      One hundred percent efficient.
      No chimney.
      Zero maintenance.
      Physical equipment is cheap baseboard units and thermostats in each room.

      If things get really bad I have a 55 gal drum outside I can burn the furnature in.

  4. PLASTIC DUCK says:

    More sensible Brits see a forthcoming disaster in Brexit and the useless PM May. I greatly admire Gina Miller who last year put a stop to the illegal activity of the government via the High Court and currently seeks clarity. https://endthechaos.co.uk/
    As for the IPCC. So let’s agree on Global Warming and that figures show anthropgenic input is likely to cause it. What is less clear though is what effect solar cycles are having. While they know about Milankovich what is less clear is the solar cycles and microcycles that don’t figure in the geological record and which to me, play an important part.

    • OldCorpsTanker72 says:

      “So let’s agree on Global Warming and that figures show anthropgenic input is like to cause it.”

      Why? Why would we agree on that? How about let’s not?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Oh, dearie, dearie me! The THREAT of that villainous gas carbon dioxide, a malleable compound that is responsible for the dramatic increase in green vegetation planetwide! Oh, yes, let’s DO curse a gas that composes a bare 5% of the total volume of gases in the atmosphere, and ignore things like snowfall in the Atacama Desert, ongoing since 2013. The Atacama Desert in Chile is one of the driest places on Earth. Its normal precip level is about 1 inch per year. Now it is getting regular snowfalls and below-average temperatures, causing a real problem for the people who live there because their houses aren’t built to shed precipitation.
      And why is the Atacama getting rain and snow? Because the winds off the Pacific are sending that kind of WEATHER up into those mountains.

    • valerie says:

      “What is less clear though is what effect solar cycles are having. ”

      Every real scientist knows that the primary determinant of our temperature is that big flashlight in the sky, and the earth’s overall temperature is related to its fluctuations in the energy output that reaches us.

      There is a correlation with sunspots. Carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere follows temperature change.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      The “European Union” has become a suicide pact, death by buracracy merged with ‘progressivism’.

      Britain wisely bailed out. They at least have a chance to survive the coming disaster on the continent.

  5. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    I just yawn at the climate change zealots anymore, I still remember being told in the late 80’s that by 2000 croplands would be deserts, forests would be wastelands due to logging and acid rain, oceans would swell due to the loss of the Polar Ice Caps and the Ozone Layer would be History as well. Today none of that has happened and the Continental US now has more forested acreage than it did in the 1930’s! Ever since they started screeching it’s always been that we only have five to ten years left until the big ecological apocalypse!

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      CO2 is a critical plant food. More of it means more biomass, faster.

      I will leave looking up the results as an exercise for the intellectually honest.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        For those who say they want to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, I remind them of how CO2 makes plants grow and their wish to reduce CO2 will reduce crop yields, thus THEY are taking food from the mouths of children! Yes, I’ve field tested that on my liberal moonbat Sister and it had her running out of the room saying that I had just attacked her and I owed her an apology but IMHO that’s what she gets for throwing her crap at me and putting yours truly in full asshole mode!

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          Well, since your sister has converted to the New Religion known as CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming – words she probably can’t pronounce), she is probably bowled over by the likes of Michael Mann, Bill Nye the (not) Science Guy, and other such gods. If you asked her what deity she worships, she probably couldn’t even say ‘Gaia’, but it’s that kind of thing. I’m also sure she’s donor to Algorebull’s begging letters.
          When (if) Katla does erupt, if it is a Full-Blown Full-On Nasty Eruption (FBF One), you aren’t under any obligation to feed her, you know.
          Ask her how many tress she’s planted lately. And if she hasn’t planted any, why not? More trees, less CO2.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        API, you could tell your sister, when she chills out, that she alone is a HUUUGE producer of CO2 because she breathes regularly. Every time she speaks, in fact, she produces CO2.

        The average human produces about 2.3 pounds of CO2 per day, although someone engaged in a high level of activity might produce 8 times that amount (up to 20 lb/day).

        And that makes HER one of those CO2 producers all by her lonesome, especially if she uses a bicycle a lot.

        If the irony doesn’t hit her, tell her how much CO, CO2, and other bad gases are produced by her vehicle.

        • Sparks says:

          Thank you Ex-PH2. That is why I always recommend to liberal, hand wringing global warming neurotics, that they simply use any available plastic bag or Saran Wrap and cover their heads tightly until ALL the CO2 stops. Their contribution to the global warming cause will have manifold benefits for everyone.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          Sparks, you are truly understanding.

        • Slow Joe says:

          Wait, are you saying that riding a bike produces more co2 than driving a car?

          Can I see the source? I wanna use this against my crazy relatives, but they Google everything I say, so I need a source.

          Oh, I can Google too!
          I am getting slower.

          • Ex-PH2 says:

            Well, but I did not say anything about bicycles or autos. Reread what I said.

            I was quite clear: The average human produces about 2.3 pounds of CO2 per day, although someone engaged in a high level of activity might produce 8 times that amount (up to 20 lb/day).

            And that makes HER one of those CO2 producers all by her lonesome, especially if she uses a bicycle a lot.

            I also said that API should tell his sister about all the BAD gases (CO, CO2, etc.) produced by her vehicle. I did not say that riding a bicycle produces more CO2 than a car, NOT at all.


        • Slow Joe says:

          Google says you are wrong. Cycling is about 15 times more CO2 efficient than driving.

  6. MAJ Arkay says:

    I do not understand the term “climate change.” It’s as if all those so-called intellectuals believe humans can actually change the climate. Well, I got news for them: Mother Nature decides what the climate is, and it changes every single day on some part of the planet. Over geological time periods (which do not even begin to match human time measures), climate changes.

    The very idea that humans can prevent the climate from changing is beyond ludicrous. We could all die off and Mother Nature will continue to march, as if we were never here. Just ask the dinosaurs…

    So when the zealots spout their drivel, using either “climate change” or “global warming,” I know them for what they really are: people who want to take all your money and give it to themselves. Period.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      “Climate change” is redundant.

      There has never been climate stasis in the four-odd billon year history of earth.

      It is not stable long-term, and only meta-stable over millennia. It jumps around based on a wide variety of inputs.

      Our input is -tiny- compared to naturally-occurring inputs.

      The game is up when you realize that, no matter the question, the answer is always “Moving closer towards implementing worldwide socialism”.

      Rain? Too much freedom!

      Drought? Too much freedom!

      Ice? Too much freedom!

      Hot? Too much freedom!

      Famine? Too much freedom!

      Bounteous plenty? Too much freedom!

      Variation? Too much freedom!

      Dissent? Too much freedom!

      We have to Do Something! Before the masses wise up…

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Yes, we have to stop The They before they get more out of hand. Isolate them some place, like an island in the cold, frozen south Atlantic, not too far from Antarctica, but too far to swim there.

        Or stop them in their tracks before they do any more damage than they have already done.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Just look at how Meteorologists can barely predict the precise point of ground zero for a hurricane strike twelve hours from landfall and yet we’re supposed to believe that they can successfully predict what our weather and climate will be like twenty to fifty years from now? I still remember the 1970’s predictions of a man-made ice age which was going to be the result of particles from hydrocarbon consumption blocking sunlight.

  7. George V says:

    A video of some of the malarky in climate science from the website wattsupwiththat.com, run by Anthony Watts. This site is a good resource for science that contradicts the prevailing climate change theory.

    Also, no increase in hurricanes or their intensity: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/09/16/the-washington-posts-slander-on-hurricanes-and-climate-change/

    This is a good website because the contributors tend to use actual measurements of what has happened or is happening as CO2 levels change as opposed to reports that something “could” happen or is “likely” to happen based on some model.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      What the leftists never mention is that models are designed to show a particular result. The assumptions are baked in.

      The models show that increased CO2 leads to “hothouse earth”

      Gee. Is that because maybe the 3x multiplier for CO2 effect that was programmed into it? That is an assumption, and drawing conclusions from the -model- is circular reasoning.

      “The model is designed around a huge effect of CO2”

      “Look! All the predictions show huge effect from CO2!”

      “Aha! We must do something about CO2!”

      “Hey. This actual temperature data doesn’t match…”


      “No worries. I have corrected the data errors. Perfect fit to the model.”

      Watts doesn’t have a college degree, so his opinion doesn’t count.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        I don’t know where you get that information, but it is immaterial.

        A great many of the articles on WUWT are written by people who DO have degrees, including advanced degrees, so yes, it DOES matter.

        One of them is a solar physicist. Would you care to argue anything with HIM????

        • Slow Joe says:

          Yeah I know, but Anthony Watts himself doesn’t have a college degree, and I tried to use him as a source in college and my professor made me drop him because Watts doesn’t hold a degree.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          I checked his ‘about’ section. He does not have a degree in climate science.

          He was a professional meteorologist, which is an entire different subject.

          The requirement for being a meteorologist is a 4-year BSc in either Meteorology or Atmospheric Science.

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    There seems to be a brief repeat of the Medieval Warm Period in northern Europe. German vintners report that they are producing some of the best rieslings and pinot noirs they’ve ever had, because the warmer WEATHER concentrates the sugars in the grapes.

    I hope some of that stuff makes it to Aldi in my general area. I will even haunt Binny’s about it.

    And to think, Katla could spoil all of that with one big hiccup.

    Autumn is officially in place in my kingdom. Cooler nights, pleasant days, and the geese are flying south already.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Speaking of volcanoes, I remember the colder winters we had following the 1992 eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines which many experts said released MORE pollutants into the atmosphere than the entire industrial age put together.

      • Slow Joe says:

        I have seen statistics pointing that volcanic activity only puts out about 10 percent of the CO2 we produce.

        But then, those were from mainstream sources and liberals believe the end justifies the means, so they have no problem lying for the “greater good”.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Yes, I remember them, too. It was so much fun, waiting at the bus stop, and even more fun, waiting for the homeward bound bus in the evenings! Snow blowing off the lake, bitter winds that made me glad I had a warm apartment to live in.

  9. RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

    But try all telling that to the boy whose indoctrination, er I mean education my wife and I have forking out thousands of dollars for over the last four years and the detonation will be felt globally. He’s bought into the whole Al Gore BS story hook line and sinker, without undertanding how statistics can be manipulated by cherry picking your data sets and norms to say anything you want. I want Mr. Fat Ass Gore and the rest of his frauds made to clear all that non-existant snow off everyone’s driveways, walks, and steps this and every winter in perpetuity as penance for foisting this fraud on the people. By the looks of him Al could use the PT; I do enjoy sending the boy out to clear all the global warming away when he is home on break, BTW – he on the other hand is often muttering under his breath unintelligibly (must be cursing the slowness of the warming trend…)

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, you could tell him that the so-called “starving polar bear” was not starving but was found to be dying of cancer.

      You could also tell him that the “ice” floating in Algorebull’s first movie was actually styrofoam.

      You could also tell him that carbon dioxide is a biological requirement for healthy plants, including the wheat that goes into the bread for his sandwiches, and the soybean plants that are the source of his soy lattes, and that many, many individual small farmers using greenhouse methods to raise veggies for markets pump CO2 into their greenhouses year ’round to increase plant production.

      You could also tell him that each time the disastrous end-of-the world date arrives, and nothing has happened, the AGW crowd move the goal line ahead by 10 to 20 years.

      You could also tell him that when someone says something like “I believe in global warming” it is a sign of religious fervor, and has nothing to do with real science.

      Or you could just cut off the funds and tell him he’s on his own and he’d better have a job lined up by next month, too.

      • RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

        We could, we’ve tried many of those in fact. The one that has worked best is to remind him about the purse strings and that the Marines are still looking for a few good men; that usually shuts him down. In my family the military is the family biz, I won’t subject the military to him though – they have enough problems, good kid just not cut out for it at all.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          Here’s the real problem: this young person is going through what can only politely be referred to as a form of conversion to the New Religion, which is Anthropogenic Global Warming, or AGW. It is bolstered by the likes of Michael Mann (hardly a godlike production) and Bill Nye the so-called Science Guy, whose message is to a collective group, and your son is one of that collective group. It is also supported underneath by the revival of Marxism.

          You can use all the contrarian arguments you want to, provide proofs and backup to support them, and he will still refer to you and your wife as Deniers.

          He is as deep in the swamp of this as any convert to any new religion, and Deniers like you only reinforce his belief system.

          It doesn’t matter whether you took him to church or not, this is HIS New Religion, bolstered underneath it all by the insidiousness of Marxism.

          He isn’t off his nut. He is simply going off in another direction, one foreign to you and unless something really bad happens (like a volcanic winter), he won’t listen to anything you say. Reason, proofs, concrete evidence – all mean nothing. He has been lost to this New (False) Religion of Manmade Global Warming.

          Perhaps some day, he’ll realize that he was the victim of an extremely clever propaganda machine, but for now, just try to keep him out of things like climate protests.

          Ask him to go plant some trees instead. That would be more useful than protest marches.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        It wouldn’t hurt him to get lost in a place where he has no one to fall back on and cold weather is setting in.

        But that’s something I’ve done (although I was never lost) and I had fun, so it might not work.

  10. Roger in Republic says:

    The late Sam Kennison said that there was no excuse for people to die in a famine because god gave us feet. If drought hits your crops all you need to do is walk to somewhere that has rain. His suggested cure for famine in Africa was to give the starving people suitcases in which to carry their goods while they walked to a wetter, more fertile region. I think that the same goes for climate change. The seas rise? Walk up hill. Snow comes early? Head south. Gets to warm? Shed your clothes. Gets too cold? Put some more on. People with feet can always move to more moderate climes as long as they don’t wait too long waiting for the government to come and save them.Feet, the answer to climate change is, and always has been, Feet. I know because it is a scientific fact!

      I will send my WARMEST thoughts your way, Chairborne!

      U haven’t checked the MODIS link for how much Hudson’s Bay is icing up yet, but I will do so soon.

        Ex-PH2, Are you presently in need of a cabana boy? Or perhaps a feline personal trainer/Kitty whisperer?

    According to the Surface station report, part of the problem is a lot of the surface stations that report temperature are located in bad spots.

    An example would be one in Ontario, Oregon.
    The station there is located at the town wastewater treatment plant in between tanks. On a night when the air temperature was registered at 0 degrees an infrared image of the station was taken, showing the tanks, with water vapor rising around the station, registered at 55.9 degrees.

    One Russian surface station in the arctic circle was located on the roof of an occupied building.

      One surface station was set up next to a parking lot where a popular ice cream truck would stop, sell its wares and stay all day with the freezer motor running and venting exhaust right into that station’s gauges. (Snort!)

      Others are set up very near commercial jet runways. Asphalt doesn’t really affect those readings at all, does it?

    I recall the global cooling of the 1970’s. I watched the hilarious movie “the Day After Tomorrow” last night while in billeting at my base. It was so funny how global warning caused the global cooling that killed everyone.

    Don’t you just love it how progressives have it both ways?

    The funniest thing in the movie was when they were recalling the ancient great Ice Age compared the new one in the movie and proclaimed” When will we ever learn!?!?!”

    Hmmm, I might have been stoned a lot in High School but not so much that I’d forget the story of SUVs and the industrial complex causing the great Ice Age. Hell, like many boys I wanted to be a paleontologist.

    While in Kandahar in June of 2004 the thermometer in the shade was 140. That was before phones that could take pictures; as I regret not having a picture to prove what I witnessed.

    It was so hot the tarmac melted and we could not bring aircraft in or out. One does not sweat in such temps. Moisture of your skin evaporates as soon as it hits your pours.

    You drink water all day and constantly. You don’t pee until the end of the day and long after the sun goes down. Even then your piss is dark.

    Where were the weathermen then? Nowhere to be found. Oh yeah, no aircraft in or out during that time. Damn global cooling! That should have been our motto.

      While I was in Kuwait I bought an infared thermometer and during summer the ground temp would be around 140 with the pavement temp being 160+, no wonder I went through so many pairs of PT Shoes during that tour! And speaking of Polar Ice Caps melting, let’s not forget that Astronomers were noticing the ones on Mars melting. Yes Mars, and there isn’t even a single damned SUV or coal-fired power plant on that planet to blame for it!
