The state of the art (of climate change)

This post at Samizdata made me laugh out loud.
Global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter, that's what we're dealing with.

—Steven Guilbeault, Greenpeace 2005, as quoted by Canada Free Press

Afterwards, another activist clarified the remark by stating that of course taller can also be evidence of shortness, richer can mean living in poverty, baboons can mean chairs, giraffes can mean pencils and hello Ms. Robinson, your lacy trousers are well buttered with smoked trout, can you hear what I'm writing with my toaster?

It seems to me that what all of these global warming scientists are actually dealing with is the fact that their theories are rapidly being disproved and they are going to have to really scrabble around for some loony justifications in order to keep bidding for those ever-decreasing funds.

Because not onlt is mankind not actually causing global warming, but the warming itself is only in the "corrections" made by those self-same climate scientists. Oh, and for those who think that the IPCC is infallible (because it's known by big important initials, or something), can you say Mann hockey-stick graph...?

Yes.....that sly change from being indoctrinated by Blue Peter presenters going on about global warming in teh 1990s to being beaten around the head with tax policy proposals looking for ways to combat climate change in the 21st century.

Presume climate change has been used to cover all eventualities:
'Oh look, it's fucking freezing. And I've been driving my 4x4 around for years whilst spraying aerosols out of the windows in the hope for a balmy summer.'

'Well, its climate change, you see, we didn't promise you warmer. Recently.

Exsqueeze me? All the scientists EYE've heard reckon it's bollocks. It's only lefties and greenies (oh, and the MSM) you harp on about it.
