"Dont you realise," I replied, "how silly that sounds? The lowest temperatures ever recorded here in Cancun six days in a row; four extreme winters on the trot in the Northern hemisphere; more people dying in one three-day cold snap in little England in 2002 than Oxfam pretends died of global warming worldwide throughout 2010; wheres your perspective, man?"
Perspective, the Olympian capacity to see events as they affect not just us and our mates but everyone, and not just in the excitement of the present but sub specie aeternitatis, in the long, calm, kindly shadow of eternity: this has gone from what passes for education in the West.
The climate bugaboo, the strangest intellectual aberration of our age, rampages because in the me and now we have cast aside three once-universal forms of learning that gave us perspective: a Classical education, to remind us that in reason and logic there is a difference between true and false; a scientific education, to show us which is which; and a religious education, to teach us why the distinction matters.
With perspective, no one would waste a single second of his own time or a red cent of other peoples money trying, Canute-like, to make global warming go away.

it’s up and i am looking for my Dictionary again.
Lord Monckton ping! Freezin’ my knees in the Global Warming ... how about you?
People will believe in anything... including a hoax that has no real empirical basis to it - as long there’s money, power and prestige involved.
I raised no points from the floor: they said only believers in man-made apocalypse could speak up.
That statement sounds really stupid and desperate to me. If global warming is causing global cooling, wouldn't they be canceling each other out?
It is stupid....and is nothing more than propaganda....to further Global Governance ...which is what this is all about.
Well, that’s exactly what you should expect with advanced Global Warming.
Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory is extremely robust with respect to data. In fact, it is irrefutable! All observations confirm it at the 100% confidence level.
The naked casuistry of the high priests of warmism would make a Jesuit blush.
It’s a Global Warming Freeze!!
Saw this on the editorial list on Real Clear Politics this morning. Maybe common sense is beginning to emerge. Off course, that won’t stop the leftists already in power, common sense has rarely been one of their strong suits.
I would rate it as the second strangest intellectual aberration with socialism in first place by a country mile.
Yep complete control over the population of the world, even if that is done on a complete fabricated lie. What we eat, what fuel we use, how much we use, whether we are allowed to live or die, how many children we are allowed to have and when and on and on.
One of the most pernicious aspects of global warming "science" is the fabrication of probabilities. The alarmists tell us that there is particular percent chance that the earth could warm by 4 degrees or 6 degrees or whatever. Leaving aside the various evidence of natural climate regulation, the probabilities that they present are completely made up. Sometimes they will run a model a bunch of times and count up the number of times they were able to tweak the parameters to produce a certain amount of warming. Or maybe they tweak the parameters once and randomize other inputs, I forget. But either way it is an arbitrary probability, not a scientific measurement error (the only valid use of probability).
So what would global cooling cause?
This is the age of the death of reason.
If North America is covered with 10 feet of snow down to Miami... don't matter that's just weather...
But if it's warm in the Arctic... SEE !!! Global warming!!!
um... why does the weather only matter in the Arctic? I swear Europe could be buried under a mile of ice ... and the global warming people would still be screaming “global warming” as long as the arctic was even 1 degree warmer than they “THINK” it should be.
