Heartwarming news for coldhearted skeptics
It was a bit of a shock to see a frank admission -- from one of the world's leading proponents of global warming theory -- that there has been no global warming for the last 15 years. But that's what the man says!
THERE has been no global warming for 15 years, a key scientist admitted yesterday in a major U-turn.One of the problems I have is that I don't revel in people's misery. Probably because I'm a natural-born bleeding heart. Maybe even lily-livered, but please not lily-livered liberal! Lily livered libertarian? Perhaps, but there's still too much alliteration, and it makes me squeamish to self-identify that way.
In any case, I am not gloating over what has to be a major case of the blues for poor Dr. Jones.
And besides, even if I did want to gloat over his plight (and the plight of the warmists generally these days), I'm further hamstrung by worries that any resort to ridicule would constitute Alinskyite behavior.
Fortunately for me, the schadenfreude I lack is being supplied by others with harder hearts, and more bilious livers.
Like Gerard Van der Leun, who links the AGW Hitler parody video, and opines,
This one sums up the state of how the flaming wheels are flying off the AGW juggernaut with every passing day. It's got it all and is so densely packed with the lunacy of the scam that it's worth playing several times.(Via Memeorandum.)
What better way to harden my heart, bilify my liver, and stiffen my spine than this delightfully hilarious new Hitler parody? After all, what red-blooded bleeding-heart could feel sorry for Hitler?
Seriously, anyone who feels sorry for Hitler is in need of compascism, and should SEEK HELP!
I'm feeling so invigorated that I won't even worry about whether the above might violate Godwin's Law.
