Cavatus

Here’s something else that I don’t often do. Posting links from my front page to another blog.
However, if you want to get some idea of the smouldering political situation in Sweden right now, you may want to visit the Cavatus Blog.

Highlighting the atrocious treatment of those that dare to oppose the overwhelming left wing in Sweden, this blog pulls no punches.

My thanks to the author for commenting on one of my posts and bringing my attention to the blog. I will visit often.

Damage Control

Posted by Exile on January 17, 2010

Haiti has been levelled by a rather large and lethal earthquake. These past few days I have watched the figures for the unfortunate dead rise from an estimated 50,000 to an estimated over 200,000. Tomorrow, I’m sure, the estimate will be even higher. They need an estimated 20 billion dollars worth of food and other aid immediately and an estimated 500 billion in repair costs and continued aid…

I made my own estimate for the actual damage to the local infrastructure.

About $6.87 ought to do it.

Cynical? No.

If they can be unrealistic, why can’t I..?

The Meltdown Meltdown

Posted by Exile on January 17, 2010

Another climate change lie died a death this week. This one concerns the 15,000 glaciers that are presently sliding their tortuous way down the Himalayas. According to an IPCC report published in 2007, these glaciers will be gone by 2035. That seems astonishingly quick, even for a numbskull like me, as those glaciers are hundreds of feet thick, are at altitudes where the temperature is constantly below zero and where snowfall by the megaton is a daily occurrence.

It turns out, that this prediction was made based solely on a highly speculative argument supplied by a low ranking Indian scientist in a minor publication which was picked up by an IPCC cheerleader who then ran with the ball. The IPCC is doing all it can to back-pedal on this one. Or should that read back-peddle? They’ve been peddling their nonsense for years and it has cost me enough already.

Under the title “World misled over Himalayan glacier meltdown”, the Timesonline has this article on it’s pages. Misled? That’s putting it mildly. “Lied to” is the term of phrase that springs to mind.

Read the article and laugh your worries away.

At least, I would laugh my worries away but I know that somewhere out there, there are those who still believe this global warming tripe. Unfortunately, these are the same people who have access to my shrinking pockets.

 

Footnote:

It’s still bloody freezing here. Uncommonly cold. Where the hell is all that global warming when you really need it?
I must remember to write to that nice Mr. Gore and ask.
