Ice Age Alert!!!

Ice-age alert!!


All four agencies that track Earth's temperature (the Hadley Climate Research Unit in Britain, the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, the Christy group at the University of Alabama, and Remote Sensing Systems Inc in California) report that it cooled by about 0.7C in 2007. This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record and it puts us back where we were in 1930. If the temperature does not soon recover, we will have to conclude that global warming is over.

Re: Ice Age Alert!!!

If you notice, the wackos don't refer to it as"global warming" anymore. It is now "climate change".

My mother was German, my father half French and I was born and raised in Texas.

I must be a half-assed German Texan Redneck. Welcome to the club!

Re: Ice Age Alert!!!

PLEASE HELP.

I need to INCREASE my carbon footprint from my LT. I get too high mileage. Perhaps pull a spark plug wire?

Anyone know how to retrofit a carburetor to an LT? Could be the Farkle that saves the planet? I love my heated stuff, but, I love the summer as well.

I'm willing to do my part to help stop this Ice Age.

Does that mean the "Ice-Princess" will get the Democratic nomination?

Too Funny, Scientists, Economists, Statisticians and Witch Doctors all have the same "accuracy" when dealing with these things.

Joe you just need to pump a gallon or two on the tarmac around the pump. Eventually a smoker will come by and go boom, killing two birds with one stone!

And you left out the weatherman on your list. Where else can you be correct 20% of the time and keep your job!

I remember reading western stories as a kid in Germany. There was something I never understood, it had to do with Indians and Water Buffalos...

The other 1/4 might have something to do with what Wolfgang refers to.

Actually my dad's mother was a Westmoreland - the same line as the general in the Viet Nam era. While some considered him an accomplished military leader and others considered him a war criminal, I'm not sure what that makes me
