BLIZZARDS EXPLAINED

“Enviro-tards are probably holidaying in Europe,” writes Art Vandelay, “which would explain the blizzards.” He’s referring to the inverse law of global warm-mongering, which holds that global warming protests invariably result in local colding. So, does Art’s travel theory hold up?

Exhibit A: Former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating, a Kyoto supporter, is currently holidaying in Paris.

Exhibit B: “Paris had its first substantial snowfall on Friday, as icy weather continued to grip much of Europe.”

Coincidence? Unlikely!

    1. Your theory is as good as any concocted by the so-called enviro-scientists and has much more substantial empirical support.

    1. As they’d tell you, warming cooling is a sure sign of warming.

    1. It’s the evil Americans, of course.  They consume so much of the world’s resources, they must be stealing all the heat as well!

    1. Irrefutable science proves that global warming causes unusually hot heat and extra cold cold, and everything in between, and vice versa. So we better dismantle free market economies.
      I broke the dam.

    1. Number one:  Art Vandalay is an architect, not a climatologist, so I wouldn’t pay any attention to his musings on global warming.  Come to think of it, I probably would not enter any of his buildings either.

      Number two:  Paul Keating usually sleeps alone because of his snoring and cold feet.  I can only assume he was walking around Paris barefoot just before the snow began to fall.

    1. Geez, if Al Gore drops by they’ll be wearing bear skins in Rome and hunting wooly mammoths in Barcelona.

      Well, I’m a purchasing clerk in a construction company. I don’t even have a bachelor’s degree, just an associate’s in General Studies. By your criteria the only thing I should have an opinion on is whether or not the coffee in the company kitchen is up to par.

      Say, where’s your degree in climatology and architecture? Why should I listen to your opinions on Mr. Vandelay?

    1. You get a much purer cold with global warming.

    1. Time to face the facts. A new ice age is upon us. We are all doomed!

    1. As a self-appointed Professor of Warehousing I am entitled to an opinion on any damn thing that I deem worthy of my opinion. Even when, in my opinion, my opinion is irrelevant and worthless.
      Let me rephrase that…

    1. Paris – where streets of burning cars failed to counter the looming cooling trend. Keating belongs there. He and Chirac have much in common.

    1. Great Caesars Ghost – Mister Freeze must have escaped.

      To the Batmobile Robin!

      Hang on cancel that its just the weather featuring varied behaviour again.
      Better re-calibrate the Bat Computer Modelling programs for reality again.

    1. I’m sorry Tim but trying to make a case against global warming when it’s 43C in Sydney is no less ironic than trying to make a case FOR global warming when it’s freezing cold in Quebec.

      Now if you’ll excuse me I need to rest my head on a bag of ice.

    1. Sydney sizzles whilst France freezes … bloody oath, it’s warm in Sydney today … it’s 43 degrees here on the coast … I burnt my feet on the hot sands at Cronulla about midday … actually not a lot of people there, not because of the goings on of the last month, but because it was too frigging hot …

    1. #16 richard: you’re boasting again …
      #14 AussieJim: invest in an airconditioner like the whole of house, 3 phase monster I’m running at 19C right now … I’m sure I’m over contributing to global warming … but do I gve a toss on a day like this?

      Yeah, but you actually exist.  Art Vandalay on the other hand…well, as his father would say “serenity now!”

      I only pretend to be an architect. Actually I run a highly successful latex manfacturing company. You may have heard of Vandelay Industries.

    1. We have to get Margo back so that Tim has something else to write about.  He points out the absurdity of blizzard-bound global-warming protestors and Sydney gets hit with 45.2C temperatures.

      Coincidence?  Or did a Wronwright get his hands on the Weather Machine after a too-successful New Year’s celebration?

    1. “a Wronwright”?  Hopefully there’s just the one.

    1. Yes there is only one.  At least, I don’t think the cloning experiments have yet been successful.

      “a Wronwright”?  Hopefully there’s just the one.

      If time-travel enables him to be in two places at one time, then that’s no longer such a safe bet, is it?
