So, how about those melting ice caps then?

Five years ago climate “scientists” were saying, predicting, expostulating that the Arctic Ice Caps were going to disappear in five years time!  Gone away. Disappeared. Never to be seen again.  All our fault.

“The Arctic is screaming!” screamed Mark Serreze from the US govt’s snow and ice center in Boulder, Colorado.

“At this rate the Artic Ocean could be nearly ice-free at the end of summer by 2012,” hyped the delightfully-named Jay Zwally, a “climate scientist” employed by NASA.

Yes, it’s only the start of the Northern Hemisphere summer at present. But d’you think this looks like those alleged scientists are going to win their bet?


More and more these “predictions” by alleged climate scientists look like the predictions made by those who formulated the Soviet Union’s Five Year Plans, when very five years they would announce the last five years went poorly, but this five year plan would take the Soviet economy to new heights. Five years later: rinse and repeat.

These days, with these alleged climate scientists, they just shrug, say their models have “improved,” and continue taking government money for pouring out bullshit.


  1. It is pretty obvious that even the environmental movement has quietly moved on from global warming. Population growth is now the cause du jour and Malthus is once again their prophet.

    Of course, the only solution to that is genocide. It will be interesting to see how they sell it.

    Have you never encountered an eco-loon before? Child taxes of course...
