On a more serious (and thoughtful note...)

"Change" is Not New
By Thomas Sowell
March 30, 2010

Please just read it!

Far be it from me to correct someone like Thomas Sowell, but there two things I would like to correct:

Thomas says, "The huge political, financial and ideological investment of many individuals and institutions in the "global warming" hysteria makes it virtually impossible for many of the climate crusaders to gamble it all on a roll of the dice, which is what empirical verification is."

I would say, "global warming" hysteria makes it completely impossible for many of the climate crusaders to gamble it all on a roll of the dice..."

And Sowell ends with, "Educators who turn schools into indoctrination centers have been going all out to propagandize a whole generation with Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth"-- which has in fact carried a message that has been very convenient for Al Gore financially, producing millions of dollars from his "green" activities."

I would say while Algore may be only making millions onw, he stands to me BILLIONS... YES, BILLIONS!!!

Oh, the irony.....

Global Warming Activist Freezes to Death in Antarctica
The Ecoenquirer.com

(Punta Arenas, Chile) Famed global warming activist James Schneider and a journalist friend were both found frozen to death on Saturday, about 90 miles from South Pole Station, by the pilot of a ski plane practicing emergency evacuation procedures.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing", recounted the pilot, Jimmy Dolittle. "There were two snowmobiles with cargo sleds, a tent, and a bright orange rope that had been laid out on the ice, forming the words, 'HELP-COLD'".

One friend of Prof. Schneider told ecoEnquirer that he had been planning a trip to an ice sheet to film the devastation brought on by global warming. His wife, Linda, said that she had heard him discussing the trip with his environmental activist friends, but she assumed that he was talking about the Greenland ice sheet, a much smaller ice sheet than Antarctica.

"He kept talking about when they 'get down to chili', and I thought they were talking about the order in which they would consume their food supplies", Mrs. Schneider recounted. "I had no idea they were talking about Chile, the country from which you usually fly or sail in order to reach Antarctica". [Are you kidding me? Do you think there was a lack of communication in this marriage?]

Apparently, while all of Prof. Schneider's friends were assuming that the July trek would be to Greenland, during Northern Hemisphere summer, his plans were actually to snowmobile to the South Pole - which, in July, is in the dead of winter. [Opps! And these are the people who are telling us the science is REAL? REALLY? Even I knew that July is winter in the southern hemisphere and I am an idoit gloabal warming denier....]

Mr. Dolittle related how some people do not realize that, even if there has been warming in Antarctica, the average temperature at the South Pole in July still runs about 70 degrees F below zero. "Some people think that July is warm everywhere on Earth."

"And I was surprised to see how close they got to South Pole Station. They ran through all of their gas supplies for the snowmobiles", explained Doolittle. "They had cold weather gear and clothes, but during this time of year you just don't go outside unless it is an emergency."

"At least James died for something he believed in", said Mrs. Schneider. "He died while trying to raise awareness of the enormous toll that global warming is taking on the Earth."

I wish this were a joke....

...but it isn't. She actually posted the transcript of the speech on her website. Really, check it out here. (It's the first line of paragraph 31 of the speech)
