Amish Ice Cutters Rescue Stranded Ice Breakers Rescuing Global Warming Proponents Stranded in Antarctica

harvesting ice

[Strutts News Services - Cleveland] Getting from Pennsylvania to Antarctica takes a while, but steady diligence always works.

Mennonites from around the globe are moving to free rescue vessels trapped in pack ice that threatens to crush the hulls of ships sent to evacuate a bunch of vapid idiots whose intentions were to view and compile data on melting ice during the Antarctica summer. The vapid idiots were successfully evacuated by ice breaking helicopters, and they’re now home safe and sound.

Those who volunteered for the rescue missions, as of this posting, are not, and nobody cares about those brave bastards.

EXCEPT FOR THE AMISH.

Hot ‘Lanta in May

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

Hot Lanta

On May 11-12, 1997, NASA used a specially outfitted Lear Jet to collect thermal data on metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. Nicknamed “Hot-Lanta” by some of its residents, the city saw daytime air temperatures of only about 26.7 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) on those days, but some of its surface temperatures soared to 47.8 degrees Celsius (118 degrees Fahrenheit). In this image, blue shows cool temperatures and red shows warm temperatures. Pockets of especially hot temperatures appear in white.

50 degrees Celsius = 120 degrees Fahrenheit = flat roof temperature. The red zone looks to be about 30C = 86F, but these are surface temperatures. The 1997 survey recorded air temperatures of 80 F – exactly the average high temp for May for Atlanta. Cool.

In other words, it’s a peachy image of normal surface temperatures for the city.

AGW – Stop Global Warming In 9 Easy Steps

Tuesday, 10 January 2012

  1. Get rid of your gas-guzzling internal combustion vehicle.
  2. Get a wheelbarrow, install a platform with seats and a roof.
  3. Hire a peasant to take you where you want to go.
  4. Take smug pride in your efforts to save the world from Global Warming and brag about it to your friends.
  5. Bitch to your friends about having to pay the peasant.
  6. Fire the peasant and sell the wheelbarrow.
  7. Buy a car and offer the peasant transportation for a small fee.
  8. You are now an entrepreneur. Enjoy.
  9. Get rid of your gas-guzzling internal combustion vehicle.

Saturday Matinee – Freedom, World Climate Control, Flo & Eddie, Neil Young (and A Poll)

Saturday, 23 January 2010

Sure it’s simplistic, with the 1949 cartoon stereotypes and all, but that doesn’t make the message wrong. Worth watching.

Koko and Fitz try to change the climate.  Fleisher’s “Out of the Inkwell” series was nothing less than bizarre, and this is a good ‘un.

How ’bout some Flo & Eddie. Nobody got the joke, and the Turtles were fairly successful.

Neil Young’s “Powderfinger” was one of my favorites.  Never stopped to wonder why.

We don’t do many polls here, but we like to hear from you quiet ones from time to time. There’s no risk, your votes are completely anonymous. Just click as many as you like.  Consider it your contribution to the TR Steerage Committee.

Norwich, England (Strutts News Services) – A long-debated archaeological mystery has apparently been resolved by researchers of  the University of East Anglia.

The excavations of the River Yare floodplain in the early 1970s unearthed numerous fossils which gave creedence to the theory of  reptilian insomnia. All fossils were meticulously labeled and their in-situ positions noted, allowing for a glimpse into the sleeping habits of the great reptiles. (more…)

Giant Woolly Bear Caterpillar Discovered Near Las Cruces, NM, Predicts Global Warming for Decades to Come

Monday, 31 December 2007

Bunk grew up in the eastern U.S. Regional lore maintains that the severity of each coming winter can be predicted by examining the size of the brown band of the Woolly Bear Caterpillar:

According to legend, the severity of the upcoming winter can be judged by examining the pattern of brown and black stripes on woolly bear caterpillars–the larvae of Isabella tiger moths. If the brown stripe between the two black stripes is thick, the winter will be a mild one. A narrow brown stripe portends a long, cold winter.

This specimen from September shows no black bands at all, suggesting that the winter of 2007-08 will be one of the warmest on record and we’ll all be grilling hot dogs and burgers in January. You can find a couple of curious videos of these giant freaks of nature here.

Here’s a normal sized one, sleeping:
