says that`s global warming for ya.

Actually (non-funny), climate change can give us more extreme weather. Colder winters and hotter summers.
And warmer oceans mean more snow, as more water vapour goes into the clouds.
Global warming from my arse
only if I fart of course
I would love to let one go full max
but Government would impose a tax
I look around and see the snow...
s global warming dont ya know
doesnt matter if it`s warm or cold
we have to do as we are told
Pay this tax and don`t do that
carbon Credits pay fat cats
Politicians toe the line
as they finish up their time
no need to think of well what now
Foreign power will employ
I agree, bonjo, though it shouldn't stop a laugh on either side.
I saw a Harvard psychologist's filmclip about why so many people deny Climate Change - in a nutshell, it's because our species has no concept of a problem of this scale and nature, and we have to trust our judgement on a few graphs - some other countries are more aware because they are experiencing more obvious changes already. Much easier for us to ignore the problem as it isn't actually hurting us. Yet.
More jokes, anyone ?
Al Gore keeping his car runing for one hour ? Al Gore becoming a multi millionaire .Al Gore being a lying fuck and distorting the truth .The Guy in charge of the data refuse to share it with other scientists .CO2 is a very small %tage of the air ,of the warming gases it is 5% ,water vapour making up the rest
Use Bockhams razor ,global warming is a tool to raise taxes and control people and it is doing a great job .
There were hotter periods in the past ,it is just a cycle if we could control it more would be done .
There were indeed hotter periods in the past, dinosaurs at the North Pole blah blah etc. etc. Trouble is when that happened the Earth wasn't supporting 6 billion apes with oversized brains and the desire to carry on living/begin living a certain lifestyle based on highly energy-intensive industry.
So, to use the principle of Occam's (yeah, really, look it up) razor, if virtually all the climate scientists say it is real and a few crackpot right-wing think tanks funded by religious nuts in the US say it isn't, it's real. Even Exxon have stopped denying it.
The trouble with you, arrghgarry, is that you are a pillock.
I used to think that there was global warming ,like all the other pillocks .If you compared the funding that went into Global warming pockets and the the money that went into right wing nut jobs pockets it is vastly different Most of the Co2 is put into the air is not by humans or their activity .The point is ,Governments can charge or do what they like under the guise of GW scaremongering and pillocks like you believe it.
In the UK, I've always needed a coat in winter and a brolly in summer. It's never changed.
Source of statistics here? What money "went into Global warming pockets", whatever that means?
There's a lot of industrial R&D going on, by companies who see it as an opportunity to make money from new technologies - and good luck to them - and a little official information generating, but the idea that governments here or elsewhere are cooking this up to get more tax money/increase their power is barely worthy of the Daily Mail on an off day.
There have been loads of scares in the past e.g. autism and the MMR jab, cancer from mobile phones, getting CJD from eating beef etc. The difference there was that it was the media and some members of the public getting worked up, while the scienitists were mostly pretty relaxed about it. On climate change, the scientists are actually telling us to worry, not least because it may be massively worse than originally feared.
Found it. By Prof Daniel Gilbert of Harvard. Bright chap by anyone's standards
Note, this is mostly about psychology, not specifically Climate Change
Very wittily presented, whatever you think about CC.
Triggers iTunes to play the broadcast.
Incidentally, I was told about CC on my Chemistry course in ~1975. May have mentioned this before. Scary even then, more so now.
Ox ,if GW was real and such a worry why would the guy in charge of all the data refuse to share it with other scientists ? Russian scientists had to hack into his computer to see E mails which even doubted it .(which they complained at and even had got the U.K Gov . to back them up that they were not telling lies .
When further questioned he said that there was too much data and he wasn`t sure what was what.What he did know that he was in a well paid job and it was in his interest to keep the status quo .
This year will be the coldest year in the last 10 years ,due to global warming and if it was the warmest it would still be global warming .
A climate change denier turns up at hospital with two broken arms.
"what happened to you" asks the doc
"I slipped on a snail"
"didn't you see it coming?"
"no, it came from behind".
Many years ago I saw a clip on CNN ,they were covering the opening of the Carbon credits market ,they seemed a tad embarrassed when the cameraman focused on the crate of champagne that these rapists were about to drink after getting this scam into being .If there was a problem why would they still let Countries burn what ever they want as long as they paid off the the Maldives or other tiny countries.
Come on think about it ,it`s business .They are lots of things that countries could legislate to reduce consumption of Power ,however if they took those steps
more and more people would start asking questions and asking for proof of which THERE IS NONE .There is no proof that human activity causes or increases global warming..You sheep are worse than 6 year olds
What do you think the pakis think about it, aaarghgary?
The ones in England or the mother ship ? They probably have more important things to worry about ,as we should.
How do you get a fat girl into bed ? A piece of cake.
Does it make you feel good, slagging off "pakis", arrghgarry?
Does it make you proud to be white?
There ain't no black in the union jack, eh, mate?
Did I slag them off ? Who said I was white ?
are Indians racists when they slag off ,Pakistanis .are Pakistanis racist when they kill Indians ?
Gawd...Hope I never get stuck in a broken-down lift with you, Gary. What the hell are you doing on a comedy site, while the BNP are recruiting?...
Well it depends what side your Occam's razor is whetted on, if 'climate change denial' (and how I hate that loaded term) is all a vast right wing conspiracy and 'deniers' suffer from a mass hallucination then I'd have to ask who is constructing the needlessly elaborate theory to explain away whose arguments?
The really interesting thing, to me, about CC is 1) what's the most cost effective way to ameliorate it's effects, 2) how can you do that without a lot of growth destroying authoritarian intervention and 3) how can I make a cheap shot joke about it.
As a rule jokes are only funny is they come from the same world view as your own. Which I guess is why climate denier jokes leave me a bit cold, it's not that I identify with them especially it's that neither argument seems strong enough for the "anyone who disagrees with it is a moron" trope to be instinctively funny. Not in the way that, say, flat earth, moon landing conspiracies, creationism or eugenics is patently laughable bullshit.
This is a long winded way of saying if you lay down and have a long think about it this joke isn't as crap as it seems.
British new Petroleum ?
When you see a "paki", gary, does it make you angry inside?
Do you get balled up with anger in your stomach, and wish you could hit them?
It's OK mate! There ain't no black in the union jack! Lots of people think just like you!
Now fuck off to meet your friends on the Daily Mail forum, and stop bothering us here.
It will be the coldest winter this year because of the the 16 year cycle .Nothing to do with Global warming ,just as the last few warm years as nothing to with global warming ...it`s a cycle
Even the teachers have come out with Global warming denier ,attacking anyone that would go against it ,you are so blind ..
Try to go to a school ,a University and just see how many of these brain washed students will listen to an opposing argument .
Rick with the silent P ,I just told you I do business with Pakistanis and Indians and Blacks I draw the line at Jews.I like them ,well the ones in japan that actually have to work for a living (no dole here buddy )Actually there is black in the union jack ,it`s in the stitching .
Can`t we just all get along ?
Hey Rick when you see a Lebanese does it make you angry inside ,what about your mates ,when they attacked the Lifeguards ,did you run in and say if these guys think that Aussie girls are sluts and deserved top be raped that`s okay with me .
An Aussie accusing me of being racist is a fucking joke .
For fucks sake how long are people going to tolerate him spouting this shit?
Ricks not all that bad he is just an Aussie ,I thought you had your last say ages ago ,been into that miners club yet ?
Could I, as a Scientist, (no, not in climatology) make some observations? There are no scientists that deny climate change - the fossil record, ice cores from the Arctic icecap and Greenland glaciers etc show that the planet has, throughout its history, fluctuated in temperature many times, regardless of human activity (or existence). Where there is contention is the impact of human activity on climate, its significance (or otherwise) for future climate change and what can (or should) be done to ameliorate the possible effects of our activities on future generations. After all, the planet will be fine, it's us who are fucked.
My own view is that we should err on the side of caution and attempt to reduce our consumption of energy in general, and urge our Governments to look at really sustainable energy sources. I mean, solar power in England? Come on! For the UK, nuclear and clean coal are the only realistic (but expensive) options within the constraints of current technology. On that sobering and completely un-amusing note, I bid you all Goodnight. Don't forget to switch your computers off.
Will do .
