This gets top billing over bodice-ripper stories.

Honk Kong Dieters Warned Over Swallowing Parasitic Worms to Lose Weight

The subtitle?

Dieters in Hong Kong have been warned by government doctors that they may be risking their lives by swallowing parasitic worms that can grow up to 15 inches long.

Let me put this as delicately as I can… ah… uh… ah…

What the hell is the exit strategy?

Aggie Sith’s response in the comments section signifies to me that we need Amusing Bunni’s graphic re-posted here for the convenience of yourself, Casual and Constant Reader…


I suppose AGW could be caused by bodice-ripper novels and sweaty nipples, but I rather doubt it.

Since glaciers don’t have much connection it looks like Rajendra Pachauri (IPCC head) is going to just hope that steamy romance novels do the job. Maybe if he gets enough people steamed up he could start some real warming.   Oh yeah, that’ll do it.

Nothing wrong with his subject material…

For a country where sex is rarely discussed in public the book mingles lectures on climate change with descriptions of Sanjay’s sexual encounters, including frequent references to “voluptuous breasts.”

And, being a member of the IPCC, he’s certainly no stranger to writing fiction.


When your time is up, it is UP.  And when it isn’t… man… this guy was NOT supposed to go.  Many thanks to Michael A. for being there to help out as he is and to take the pics (his site is just below the picture).  You can be sure I’ll be stopping by there more often.

A 28-year-old man was pulled from the rubble of a market in Port-au-Prince on Monday and has been admitted to the University of Miami’s field hospital in the capital, adjacent to the airport, according to hospital officials.

Poor guy looks like he’s been through a harsh month but man oh man.

Update: Scientists don’t fudge data.  Climates fudge data.

Remember what I said about a climate-bedwetter echo chamber?  Many thanks to Peter Foster for saying out loud a lot of people were thinking:

… the lead author of the relevant IPCC chapter, Murari Lal, rejected the notion that the IPCC had screwed up. “The IPCC authors did exactly what was expected from them,” he said.

Never were truer words spoken. The IPCC’s task has always been not objectively to examine science but to make the case for man-made climate change by any means available.

You KNOW things are bad when THIS happens:

Even New Scientist, which printed the story on which this inverse pyramid of alarm was built, and which has traditionally been in the True Believing mainstream media camp, is demanding answers on how pure speculation could become an IPCC “finding,” which was then so vigorously defended by Dr. Pachauri.

New Scientist has been whoring for the AGW cause on a pro bono basis purely because it felt so good, never mind the inconvenient lies.

Update2: Chemical Ali executed.  About damn time.

Update3:  The CRU e:mails are in a nice searchable form here:  http://www.eastangliaemails.com/

Update4:  I’d think that the poor fish WANTS to be extinct.


Look at the picture.  Grok what you see.  Feel the sadness, the lameness, the ineptitude.  I don’t even need to comment further than to say that he’s speaking to a 6th grade class.


First ugly render!  I’m having to relearn Blender all over again.  Taking time just to do bevels and tapers, but I’m not displeased.  The handle and body will actually prove to be very difficult because of the lamb’s tongue type fluting I want to put on it.

(sigh) Might take some time.

My chest SWELLS with pride.

My seven year old daughter raised her hand in class yesterday and corrected the teacher, telling her that Global Warming isn’t real.

Gosh I love that little girl to death.



cbullitt passed this on, from Frank J. at IMAO.  I told him that if just one good thing happened to me today, it was receiving that quote.

It’s like Massachusetts just abandoned Ted Kennedy in a car at the bottom of a river.


Amazing. It just keeps a-squirting out.

Head of IPCC and director gen. of TERI scrambling.

Rajendra Pachauri, head of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and director general of the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in New Dehli, India, said this week that the U.N. body was studying how its 2007 report to the United Nations derived information that led to its famous conclusion: that the glaciers will melt by 2035.

Study?  The IPCC isn’t going to be studying while they are on spin-cycle.  There’s dirty laundry to be done, lads!

Today, the IPCC issued a statement offering regret for the poorly vetted statements. “The Chair, Vice-Chairs, and Co-chairs of the IPCC regret the poor application of well-established IPCC procedures,” the statement says, though it goes short of issuing a full retraction or reprinting the report.

Criminal minds always regret being caught.  They don’t regret the act.

Pachauri told Reuters on Monday that the group was looking into the issue, and planned to “take a position on it in the next two or three days.”

Already took a stand, didn’t you fellas?

The IPCC’s 2007 report, simply titled AR4, claimed that “glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world, and if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.”

Polar ice is also disappearing at a frightening rate and polar bears are having to commute further and further.  Or so goes the rumor.

Contacted by FoxNews.com at TERI, officials would not respond to a request for additional comment. IPCC is expected to withdraw the report’s claim eventually.

Yep, that report will be withdrawn… oh.. say perhaps 2035?


Did IQ’s drop precipitously over the last 25 years?

Snow Will Be Trucked In for Some Olympic Events in Vancouver

VANCOUVER —  Olympic organizers say they will truck in snow for the freestyle skiing and snowboarding events at Cypress Mountain.

The forecast for the week ahead suggests there will be no new snow for the mountain on Vancouver’s north shore, nor will it get cold enough to make any…


Cathy Priestner Allinger, executive vice president …

[snip] … says they are not planning to have snow.

Contingency plans are now being rolled out which include using straw and wood to take the place of snow to build the base for the courses.


Oh yeah… the NEXT winter Olympics will be held in Jamaica.  Never mind that snow isn’t ever seen there, because it’s all about being fair.

For cryin’ out loud.
