Hoaxers Examine Their Tea Leaves

Ninety percent of the world's ice is in Antarctica, where it has been thickening. Global warming hoaxers have been twisting themselves into pretzels, attempting to reconcile this fact with their hysterical lies about melting ice spelling doom for the planet.

James Overland of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claims that an ozone hole over the Antarctic is masking conditions there, keeping temperatures low. Later the ozone hole will close up, so we're still doomed.

Gareth Marshall of the British Antarctic Survey floats this one: climate change causes Antarctic winds to blow harder, trapping colder air. But this will decrease at an undisclosed future date, so we're still doomed.

Gabbles Marshall:

The tea leaves point to a minimal amount of sea ice next September, that would be the same as we had last summer, 40 percent loss compared to 20 years ago.

At least tea leaves are an improvement over the phony computer models they've been using to find their predetermined results.

On a tip from hiram13pm.

Recycling is good.

How many times have they recycled the "ozone hole"?

How about the land ice, Mr Marshall?

Durring the "ice age crisis" in the seventies, I heard about some highschool "science" teacher saying that the increasing ice cap would "over-balance" the Earth, causing it to tip over on it's side.
Think that's funny? Several people BELIEVED it enough to spread the word, and that's SCARY!

I remember an episode of "In Search Of" from about 1978 that covered the new ice age story. Spock interviewed some crackpot in a leisure suit (didn't he always) who swore most of North america would soon be covered with ice sheets.

Maybe the same guy?

Wasn't closing the ozone hole the trendy environmental cause of decades past? Honestly, do these people even reference their past hoaxes before cooking up new ones to see if they might contradict? Ten years from now we'll be told that the closing ozone hole and lower carbon emissions are together causing the earth to freeze over. Not to worry, though. We can count on these same idiots to warm us up nicely with the steady stream of alarmist hot air emitting from the only holes that, in spite of science's best efforts, can never seem to be closed.

Well, if they want the Ozone hole to last (remain open), I'm more than happy to start using cheap and effective CFCs again. The crap they sell to replace CFCs is, well crap.

Moonbats, as sad as it is, procreate and teach thier Spawn Moonbattery.

The Spawn of Moonbats try to out-Moonbat thier sperm-and-egg donors Moonbattery. Its a never ending death spiral of Moonbattery.

Therefore, we must suffer from Moonbattery that makes less and less sense every 10 - 20 year cycle, because all of the good Moonbat cause have been over done.

That might have been Hanson. In the seventies he was crying "new ice age!" but in the nintys he invented "global warming"!

Awe yes Oiao, but I would have thought that the moonbat fondness for "Choice" and standing in line at abortion mills would have put a damper on the procreation potential. I really would like to see them go the way of the dinosaur... extinction!
