'I've grown old waiting for the promised global warming.' Literally: 'I was 35 when predictions of a looming ice age were supplanted by warmmongering. Now I'm 68, and there's still no sign of warmer weather.' -- 'So basically, all that the global warming advocates really have, as the evidentiary basis for their theory, is that global temperatures were a little higher than usual in the late 1990s. That's it. Which proves nothing. The climate varies, just as weather varies, and as far as we can tell, this is all well within the normal range' -- 'A theory with this many holes in it would be have been thrown out long ago, if not for the fact that it conveniently serves the political function of indicting fossil fuels as a planet-destroying evil and allowing radical environmentalists to put a modern, scientific face on their primitivist crusade to shut down industrial civilization. But can't we all just stop calling this 'science' now?'
