Proof at last!

I have proof of global warming! It’s August and the weather here is completely out of control. It’s been raining off an on for 4 days straight and now today the temps were in the low 70’s. At 6:00 PM this evening it was already 64 degrees. In fact as I am writing this, the temp is dropping. It’s already down to 63 degrees.

There is only one thing that could cause these freakishly cold temperatures, Global Warming. I mean, it falls into the all the other theories I’ve heard of late. Last year we were in a draught, due to global warming, this year we are above average, due to global warming. Last year there were 11 Hurricanes/tropical storms by this time. We were told that was due to global warming. This year there aren’t as many, and again Global warming is being toted as the culprit. Based on this, I figure these freakishly cool temps in August are again a result of global warming, last year they said the unseasonably hot weather was proof of it.

So there you go all you non-believers, proof.


I love hack science.

Here's a gem of hack science that Fox News reported yesterday:

The polar ice cap may not be the only thing shrinking in the Arctic.
The genitals of polar bears in eastern Greenland are apparently dwindling in size due to industrial pollutants, a new study finds.
Scientists report that this shrinkage could, in the worst-case scenario, endanger polar bears on Greenland and elsewhere by spoiling their love lives and causing their numbers to peter out.

Our tax dollars at work, I'm sure :P,2933,210444,00.html

Damn - I just got home and was gonna "weather blog" but you beat me to it.

And to add to what you said - the wind this afternoon while smoking a cigarette was down right brisk!!!

"The genitals of polar bears in eastern Greenland are apparently dwindling in size due to industrial pollutants, a new study finds."

I don't think it's confined to just polar bears. Bet global warming has something to do with that too. That would explain alot.

I wonder how many millions of dollars were spent to determine the size of polar bear genitalia? Sounds like the $80,000 study to figure out which ketchup actually poured the slowest. For no particular reason except to test advertizing claims. Or the great hack scientist from, I believe, Syracuse who published "research" that Monarch butterfly populations were being devestated by chemicals. Only to later be exposed as a fraud for falsifying and lying in his "research."

But I still have one question. How did they get the data to show that Polar Bear Genitalia are shrinking?

Probably talked some idiot into going out and getting a feel for the situation.

Sadly, I read most of the report. It cost a LOT more than $80K. And they determined the size by measuring dead ones, so the live ones didn't even get a cheap feel. Then again, how much would someone have to pay YOU to go around grabbing a friggin BEAR by the balls?
