In your face evidence of man made global warming

As the temperature keeps rising relentlessly, I am constantly baffled by things like this:

Snow has fallen over the United Arab Emirates for the first time ever, leaving a white blanket over the mountains of Ras al-Khaimah as the desert country experienced a cold spell and above-average rainfall.

See, now I just don't understand this. I feel colder this winter than I have for a couple of years. It's snowing where it's never snowed before. And yet, it's getting hotter?

Still, at least Greenland is still melting like a bastard:

So much for Greenland ice’s Armageddon. “It has come to an end,” glaciologist Tavi Murray of Swansea University in the United Kingdom said during a session at the meeting. “There seems to have been a synchronous switch-off” of the speed-up, she said. Nearly everywhere around south east Greenland, outlet glacier flows have returned to the levels of 2000.

We're all doomed, I tells ya. Doomed!

Curse this bloody weather if only it would match the sodding computer models.

The computer models are 100% right and reality is wrong!

I need yet another HUGE grant to prove this.

Hugh Grant is too busy knobbing quality crumpet to worry about global warming.

These are just natural fluctuations that mask the uverlying warming trend.


On a more interesting note, I was on an economics crash course on Saturday and there was one lady who appeared to know everything about everything, she said that she had studied climatology and the consensus is it will be centuries before anything changes significantly.

Lady Royall, fragrant leaderess of the unelected chamber of the Houses of Parliament, whose glittering career has made her completely unknown even with the Great Pigsty, calls Lord Bricktop of Blackburn to her office for a little chat about the unfortunate publicity that has occurred.

Lady Royall: "Now, Lord Bricktop, what is all this about you being prepared to have legislation amended for £120,000 in used notes?"

Bricktop: "Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt... me. "

Lady Royall: "I was a special adviser to Neil Kinnock, so I certainly know what a cunt is. Now, about these allegations?"

Bricktop: "You're on thin fucking ice my pedigree chum, and I shall be under it when it breaks. Now, fuck off."

Lady Royall: "There's no need to take that tone with me, Lord Bricktop. It's my job to find out if there are any skeletons in the cupboard which might embarrass Gordon. He needs to know where the bodies are buried!"

Bricktop: "Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".

Lady Royall: "Well, thank you for clearing that up, Lord Bricktop."

More taxes will have to be introduced to combat global warming/the ice age.
Take your pick.

Fish die, monkeys suffer, blankets distributed as cold weather envelops Thailand

You couldn't make it up... Mmmmm well perhaps a climatologist could?
