15-year-old confronts climate madness

Dr Vincent Gray has recently returned from an international conference of Climate Sceptics in Vienna enthusing about a young woman. That woman is Kristen Byrnes, a 15 year-old schoolgirl from Portland, Maine, and, he says:
Her treatise "Ponder the Maunder" is the most effective answer to the IPCC that I have seen so far. She writes from the first person (the scientists always use the passive), and she has a flair with simple English, apart from a few spelling errors. She is expert with images, graphs and devastating arguments. Her explanation of the current warm spell from El Niños, the sun and cosmic rays is impressive. I urge you all to read it. If we have a few young people like this around we can be assured that the current climate madness can be brought to an end.
Let's hope so. Kristen's intelligent, insightful presentation might be usefully contrasted with the braindead maunderings of these young idiots [The YoungTubers on EarthDay!] telling us how we're all going to die if we keep using too much toilet paper. Nothing like getting advice from a young root vegetable.


  1. Entirely off topic, but I've been noticing that NotPC has been autorefreshing pretty frequently in Firefox. Another tab with another post just refreshed itself as I typed the last sentence. Has there been a code change that's triggering this? There it goes again. Seems to be every 30 seconds.

  2. Hmmm, no code changes that I've made.

    But I see what you mean.

    Any boffins with a clue?

  3. That is a brilliant essay. It should be forwarded to the Minister of Warmist.
