Manbearpig Retreats Again

Remember the leftist hysteria about Global Warming causing sea level rise? Remember how New York, Miami, and Berkeley were doomed --- DOOMED I tell you! --- unless the vengeful Goddess Gaia was appeased with the sacrifice of western industrial civilization on her altar?

Well. Like pretty much everything else the alarmists warned us about, it was a load.

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

While I think it's possible --- indeed probable --- that humans affect micro-climates in densely populated urban areas, I think globally, we're just not much of a factor; we are at the mercy of the climate, not vice versa. And instead of destroying our techno-industrial culture to eliminate a completely harmless gas (CO2), let's look at some other more useful projects; like cleaning the garbage out of the Pacific Gyre or increasing the global supply of clean drinking water.


Did you fall for this? Well, you're an idiot.
