Antarctica Freezes Over Despite the Global Warming Jabberwocky

    The Akademic Shokalskiy ventured forth to show the world that there just wasn’t enough ice around Antarctica during the Austral Summer. This would demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that Earth had a fever. We then, yea verily would have to put up with self-congratulatory lectures from the mighty Nobel prize winners like Al Gore or Michael Mann.*

    Then reality intruded when the Akademic Shokalskiy got stuck in the imaginary ice.** China’s Xue Long attempted to be neighborly and pull the benighted Climate Scientologists out of the ice which the IPCC proved could not possibly exist in an atmosphere with rising CO2 levels. Xue Long got bogged-down amidst the torpor of steaming climate change and won’t be going any further south this summer without a friendly assist.

    The Buying And Selling of Science At The UN IPCC

    The New UN IPCC Report has hit the streets. It is entitled Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis. In the summary for Policy Makers, we read the following !SCIENCE!

    Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea level has risen, and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased…

    Climate Scientologist Michael Mann wastes no time in taking to the Editorial Page of the UK Guardian to proclaim his victory over the iniquitous Deniers. Spiking the football long before any official could signal touchdown, he offers the following analysis.

    Diary of A Climate Science Denialist: Global Cooling Skeptic Edition

    I’m soooo scared! Game over, Man. Game over. It’s done. Stick a fork in it and serve it with pickles and onions. Repent and stew in your hangovers for the hour is rightously nigh! Global cooling is the 5th Horseman of the Apocolies. The Earth has no fever. It has hypothermia the impending Maunder Minimum instead. Blessed Gea has blue goosebumps. Or not….

    America’s leading Climate Scientologists practice intellectual inquiry with the proximate rigor that Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show went after the elusive cure for cancer. These people started in the 1990′s with The Hockey Stick Curve and The Earth having a fever. The Canadian Pop-Band Smashmouth sang to us about we might as well be walking on the sun. Reality cast it’s veto and then the warmist arguments degraded to hiding the decline and doing “The Nature Trick.” Now we get The Great Global Cooling Scare of 2013.

    Al Gore V. Al Qaeda on Why We Had Hurricane Sandy

    It seems that Al Qaeda has a sudden fascination in Tropical Meso-scale Meteorology. It involves large, convective, cyclonic systems that involve low barometric pressure and vast amounts of flooding and rain. They actually became cheerleaders for greater destruction. Like Medieval Japanese who believed that typhoons were sent from heaven to destroy Mongolian invasion fleets*, they cheered for injuries as Sandy roared ashore. Some examples of their enlightened follow below.

    A Comedy of Terrors (The Latest Halloween Schlock From The Climate Scientologists)

    As the epistemological failures of Climate Science become as large and as heavily burdensome as the Texas-sized growth of Antarctic Sea-Ice since 1979, the shrill histrionics of the Climate Scientologists who continue pushing for carbon regulation grow tinnier. Be very afraid, grants, Oops, I mean lives hang in the balance. If you fail to take action, you will die. It’s almost as if you had an alternative to eventually dying anyway.

    Now listen carefully, class. The smart guy with the Piled-Higher-and-Deeper is here to condescend to the little guy. His name is Doctor Paul Ehrlich, and he’ll tell you how to vote this election so you don’t have to turn off the idiot box and ponder these things. His sage advice follows below.
