I am seriously behind on real work and the dog has decided that whole-house vacuuming must now occur twice daily as she sheds like nothing I’ve ever seen.
This is what life is like with a Border Collie. Smartest dogs in the world, but you have two choices: vacuum so much that the machine begins to feel like an extension of your arm, or don’t vacuum, put on some Star Trek gear and call the mounting hair balls “Tribbles.”
So let me drop off all these links to climategate, beginning with the curious situation at Google, and at least get my tab-bar cleared! Happy reading!
Note how few of these links are originating with US publications.
UK Times Online: Climate Data Dumped
Christopher Booker (UK): Worst Scientific Scandal of our Generation
Guardian UK: So? Everything Will Have to Change, Anyway. Global Warming Real! And it’s going to be profitable, too!
UK Telegraph: East Anglia Does U-Turn in Climate-Change Row
BBC: Inquiry into stolen emails. Yes, that’s the big story.
Financial Times (UK): Secrecy in Science is Corrosive Force
Toronto Sun: Botch, after botch, after botch
Conrad Black, Nat’l Post, Canada: The Great Green Fraud
Clive Crook, The Atlantic – MUST READ: “The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering.”
Glenn Harlan Reynolds, US: The Internet is Slowly Moving the Story. Yes, but sadly, the Mainstream Media still controls the national conversation, and right now they’ve steered it toward Tiger Woods and GateCrashGate, although even GateCrashGate is getting short shrift.
Wall Street Journal: If you can’t trust scientists…
Bjorn Lomborg: World’s Poor Poorly Served by Boondoggling
Meanwhile, one has to wonder WHO exactly are the “denialists” (and the hysterics) here? (H/T)
Washington Post, US: Whaaa?
Ed Morrissey, US: A very weird science
NY Post (Opinion): Climate Con
Michael Barone (Opinion, US) Garbage In, Garbage Out
NY Times Blog: Climategate is discouraging young scientists
American Thinker (Opinion): Global Warming Fraud, and the Future of Science
The White House, USA: “the science is settled…”. Well yeah, if by “settled” you mean, discredited.
Staggeringly vapid and probably hypocritical (US): Hey, there is no proof of GOD, and people believe in GOD, so why shouldn’t they believe in Global Warming!
Treacher: Has some fun with it
Here is a list: of all the things caused by Global Warming. As my Auntie Lillie would might have said: when you can blame everything on one thing, you’re clearly running on something other than intellect.
Otherwise, the US Press is concerned with All-Tiger-Woods, All-The-Time.
O/T: Derek Jeter is SI’s Sportsman of the Year. He should be MVP, too. I don’t care how good Mauer is, and he’s very good, Jeter not only had a spectacular year, he Captain’ed his team to the World Series (where he batted over .400) too. He should be MVP.
