Driest year on record here in NorCal. Drier than 76/77 season. 6 inches of rain here in my area, for the whole year. That's Mojave dry.

the Chief and plenty of others are correct in pointing out that drought in California is no surprise and is certainly not a smoking gun for human caused climate change.

Its just... dry. And not without historical precedence.

Yah it's classic winter here in the banana belt of New Hampshire. Good thing 'cause we had family visiting for the holidays and were able to have fun in the snow.

Happy freezing new year! Has 'planet on fire' Al Gore given up his banana plantation on the tropical shores of Lake Superior yet?

Frigid New Year's forecast for parts of U.S. -- 40 below zero which means
the Global Warmists are Full Of Dung As Always!

Happy new years to all and best wishes for continuation of the global cooling trend.We wouldn't want to slow cook, now would we?

Has any one else noticed the increased testiness of Dr. Hartouni in these latter days? May i be so bold to suggest that the cause of this unease is not solely attributable to the need to spar through us morons to get his message out. Perhaps, deep inside that considerable mind their is an ongoing tussle between an ideology and a realization of the flaws of CO2 scientology as measured against reality. Just a thought-not worthy of comment.

Anyway for his tireless efforts to moderate, inform, educate throughout the many threads of this forum he deserves special recognition. Since we have a king-er president ,and not a queen of England, that is not likely to take notice i suggest we knight him ourselves. Sir Edward Hartouni, kind of rolls off the tongue,eh?

EDIT; yes he did DMT, this is not entirely jester

WTF does that have to do with Rick's point Dingus...

Nothing!


Reason Dingus... the likes of DR. James Hansen AND Vise President of the United States/Senator Al Gore, and many other buffoons ALSO "earned" their "titles" .

Titles don't mean jackshet.

Well, the Chief, when a person earns a title I afford that title it's due respect.

We're hearing now from The Make-Believe Perfessor but I suspect the Bizarro-World Ranter will come back soon. He's never far below the surface.

The Make-Believe Perfessor is not even slightly smarter on topics of motivation than he is on climate, physics, surveys, numbers, science or generally distinguishing between what's real and what is made up in his head. More reality-based people reading this thread understand perfectly well why Dr H sometimes gets testy.

You have a lot of nerve lecturing anyone on ideological bias .

Upthread there is a graph showing that among Republicans there is actually an increase in the proportion who firmly believe that the world is 4000 or so years old. There is one probable explanation for this. It is a well known characteristic of right wing authoritarian personalities that as a percieved threat to thier ideology increases, they increase their level of devotion and loyalty. This is a defensive mechanism associated entirely with their imperatives of certainty and loyalty. It cannot be a result rational decision making because reason, logic and fact all indicate an never decreasing certainty that the world is quite a bit older.

The same process occurs here. the right wing authoritarian personalities here ( rick , Chuff, Wrong, Dave, Sketch, Complete error....) will never abandon their ideology in favor of fact. They are the Jim Jonses and David Koresh's of the climate change thread. My new years prediction is that eventually they will gradually fade into the back ground to silently lick their wounds. Ron Anderson already has.

As ideology goes their ace in the pocket is always the fall back position of mean contemptible Chuffian Darwinism. Which of course positions them in a morally shakey corner.... that they refuse to discuss

So if you are going to point fingers of ideological bias Rick, you better show a little courage and start rationalizing your own right here and right now.




























and a happy new year to you too!

WhoaNelly. . . recently a friend of mine was tellin' me he was totally into this thread so I stopped by to see what all the ruckus was about. . . and. . .

Frikk-a-Zee, if I don't find a number of my heroes (as in favorite dads) here kinda gettin' all pissy with each other. . . hmmmmmm . . . that's OK, I guess.

Bruce,, you should NEVER attempt to speak for me.

The globull warming has turned globull cooling. All while you were drooling. Four years worth of this thread and not one graph, number or anything else has changed. Four yr fail...Hard to ignore that glaring fact eh.

Oh I knew you were silently trolling in the back ground there .. silently.... like werner.

I just wanted to poke you in the eye a bit.... like werner


my point is, you will never ever be able to say " I guess you guys were right" no matter how much the weight of factual evidence. It is a cultural imperative of authoritarians to never betray their ideological values no matter what. Better to go hide somewhere to re jigger strategy.
