TRAGIC WARMING SURVIVED
Global warming, it be good, as Florida Cracker reports:
During the first Great Warming (caused by carbon emissions from cavemen’s campfires), besides health and happiness, there was one other consequence of global warming our ancestors had to deal with: the mini-skirt. In Norway girls were wearing string minis woven from a single strand of looped wool knotted top and bottom, with nothing but pale skin underneath. It forced our poor male ancestors to look at girls like this, but nonetheless they steadfastly refused to ratify any Bronze Age Kyoto Accord. When the Earth turned chilly once more, its likes were not seen for another 3,400 years ... until the Great Carnaby Street Age.
Hit the link above to witness images associated with those expensively-bolded words. In other Gaia news, stupid whales are breeding (and jumping) like rabbits. Environmentalists, as usual, are alarmed.
UPDATE. Global warming is good for everybody! Warming alarmite Tim Lambert (current average daily visits: 3,577) is now demanding $520 per week for ad space at his rarely-viewed site; $3360 for three months! Guess that explains his recent graceless attempts to provoke an Instalanche. (By the way, ads presently displayed at Lambot’s site are apparently shared throughout the ScienceBlogs network.)
