The Eurozone has all but completely dropped its efforts at halting climate change, especially following the damning revelations from the hacked Hadley Center climate research emails in November of 2009. These emails proved that the global warming "hockey stick" which shocked the world was nothing but a complete fabrication.
More evidence has surfaced in the years following the whistle-blowing emails, which show that global warming has essentially ceased for the last 15 years, at least what little of it there was. However, this has not stopped both funding hungry "researchers" nor "media craving" meteorologist who continually insist that global warming is real and if we all simply clam-up and join the cult, we'll soon become true believers, too.
In fact Al Gore recently indicated that those who deny climate change be made to pay “a political price."
Which is why we have decided to nominate meteorologist Eric Holthaus as "Best Dramatic Meteorologist" for our continuing man-made gobal warming series rooted in phantom climate change. Indeed, Eric was so distraught after he read the latest IPCC fictional accounts on where the Earth appears to be headed, that he began crying and swore off flying ever again. According to Yahoo News on October 1, 2013, this is what he stated via several Tweets:
"I just broke down in tears in boarding area at SFO while on phone with my wife. I've never cried because of a science report before. #IPCC"
Yikes! We wonder if Eric has ever considered testosterone replacement therapy....and yet we digress.
"I realized, just now: This has to be the last flight I ever take. I'm committing right now to stop flying. It's not worth the climate."
Seriously Eric? No more International IPCC Conferences? But, how can you track global warming and somehow save the world by virtue of punching in all the data and then overreacting hysterically in the media?
But then, the truth seeped out as we wondered with increasing alarm if Eric might ever eventually get over his rather extreme bout of PCCODS (Post Cimate Change Overly Dramatic Syndrome)--the news report stated this:
"In another post for Quartz, Holthaus writes that while he's long done things to help the environment (he recycles, doesn't eat meat, brings his own bags to the store, etc.)"
Well, indeed that description would certainly explain much, to be sure....or does that make us now guilty of ideological profiling? Anyway, Holthaus further indicates Via Quartz:
"I’ll still have to travel a lot (by car and train), and I’ll use videoconferencing for meetings I can’t miss. But by removing my single biggest impact on the climate in one swoop, I can rest a bit easier knowing I’ve begun to heed the IPCC’s call to action. Individual gestures, repeated by millions of people, could make a huge difference. "
You go guy! That should save the world a good deal quicker, no doubt about it.
Either way, congratulations are in order to Eric for winning our nomination --which should be good for at least a few extra frequent flier points.
