The Warm List was last updated in 2012.

Footnote (September 2015) Why the list stopped growing.
The time it takes to process a new entry increases approximately with the square of the list length, after checking for duplications, spoofs etc. Starting it was based on the naïve assumption that the rate of appearances would decline as opposing evidence accumulated, but the reverse happened. That’s the difference between science and religion. […] There have since been hundreds more claims of an increasingly ludicrous nature.

And The Warm List compiler was right.


Listen to this [via].

At 0:38, “Teacher” Martha Readyoff actually asked Bernie Sanders, “Educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address Climate Catastrophe?

Look how CNN rephrased her question:

Bernie responded “YES.” Anyone else smell eugenics? I do.

Pheeew.


I decided to close down our CafePress store. Six months ago there was a security breach and I was just notified today via snail mail!

Saturday Matinee – USS Hartford Breaks The Ice, Remi Gaillard & Ray Charles

Saturday, 26 March 2016

ARCTIC CIRCLE (March 10, 2016)
USS Hartford (SSN 768) surfaces in the Arctic Circle near Ice Camp Sargo during Ice Exercise (ICEX) 2016. Servicemembers and civilians assigned to Arctic Submarine Lab clear ice from the hatches to allow for surface access. ICEX is a five-week exercise designed to research, test, and evaluate operational capabilities in the region [via].

Ray Charles was the best. Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll be back here tomorrow, rain or shine.

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.

Australia Blackout 2012

(West Poondongwalla, Australia) – Strutts News Services

Only the wealthiest of the wealthy were able to keep their lights on when the entire power grid of Australia failed just days ago, and no one knows why the continent now glows blue. Some locals blame global warming, while others point accusatory fingers at The Mayans for their probably prophetic Calendar of Doom that caused the utility companies of Oz to hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete simultaneously and just for the hell of it.

In any case, the well-to-do panicked wisely and moved inland to avoid the rising seas that subsequently swamped the coastal regions.

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…)
