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.

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.


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!

KimKommando chimed in and posted this link: Type in your email address(es) and it will tell you if you’ve logged into a site/service that has been the victim of a security breach that may have compromised your personal information (including birthdates, SSNs & passwords).

Global Whooping & Godzilla

Godzilla Climate Change

Sorry, folks, I can’t believe that the timing of the latest Global Whooping Hype is accidental, especially given this.

Australia Blackout Dexember 2012

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.

“I’d like to see a calculation to show how long it would take for its miles-thick icepack to melt at 33 degrees F. Sea level increases wouldn’t matter because if you weren’t living closer to the poles you’d be dealing with 150-200 degree temperatures on the surface. I hear it’s gonna happen in five years or so.”
–Bunk Strutts, 20 October 2009.

Folks, this post was sitting around for a while, and I was about to delete it except for recent events regarding the AGW hoax debates.  If you haven’t been following, here are some links to bring you up to speed.

Soylent Green’s cbullitt posted the error data cluster from the AGW folks at East Anglia University’s world renowned Climate Research Unit.  (BTW, thanks for the hat tip cbull.)

The UK Telegraph chimes in on “Climategate.”

AJStrata has been debunking (gawd I hate that word) AGW for some time now.

Chris Horner of Watts Up With That has filed three NOIs:

“Today, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.”

Iowahawk dissects the situation. Don’t miss this one.

Even CBS (!?) seems to have gotten the story right. Lookee here.

In His Own Words


We don’t intend to turn this blog into a political forum, but occasionally we feel the need to speak up about government insanity.

Forget the inane Nobel Peace Prize business.  That “prize” was reduced in value to the contents of a full spittoon when the creator of modern terrorism, Yassir Arafat, was awarded it in 1994.

Meanwhile, there is the invented crisis of global warming/climate change, and more recently the supposed crisis of health care reform.

The former has everything to do with confiscatory taxes based upon the absurd irrational premise that natural fluctuations in the average temperature of the earth are caused by humanity. We can discuss that hot/cold topic another time.

The latter has nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with government control of the health care insurance industry. Lookee here:

President Obama admits to the inefficiency of  existing taxpayer-funded government-run healthcare programs: “Medicare and Medical are about to go into the red in a few years.”

Earth Day. Yawn.


They really are yawning. Photographer staked out a site and photoshopped all the yawning people he found into one image.

Still, Earth Day…  yawn.

28 MARCH 8:30PM – PARTY LIKE IT’S 2009

Earth HourLet’s celebrate!

At 8:30PM tonight, make sure you turn all your lights on, power up your TVs and stereos, and celebrate the Technological Achievements of Humanity.  Get in your cars and drive somewhere, just for the sake of it, and just for fun.  Raise and lower your garage doors, and run your washing machines.  Run the dryer without anything in it.  Got a power mower? Crank it up.  Heat up your cat’s food  in the microwave.  Take your dog out to Burger King.  Make as many long distance telephone calls as you can.  Run your dishwasher with half of the normal load, and run the other half separately.  Open up your refrigerator door, and look without removing anything to eat.  Do it again.  Download updates for all your computer programs and email them to all your friends.


“But why should I do that?” you ask.  I’ll tell you.

We’re fighting Global Cooling.  Mostly we’re fighting Global Idiocy, but let’s call it Global Cooling for now.  The feel-good crowd will never know the difference anyway.

Those folks who think that turning their electricity off for an hour will “save the planet” (or “send a message” to someone or something) are the same folks who stood outside their homes a couple of years ago with candle wax dripping over their fingers, believing that the space shuttle was gonna zoom by and take a photo of the earth lit up with peace candles.  My message is:


HOT NEWS FLASH: Global Warming Was Stopped In Its Slimy Little Tracks in 1998


Washington D.C. (Strutts News Services) – Global warming came to a screeching halt for the sweaty huddling masses that converged upon our nation’s capitol on Wednesday, 4 March 2009 (ironically a day after Microsoft issued its Service Pack 3 update that froze the computers here at TR HQ).

According to one source found via Drudge:

“Global warming activists stormed Washington Monday for what was billed as the nation’s largest act of civil disobedience to fight climate change — only to see the nation’s capital virtually shut down by a major winter storm.

Schools and businesses were shuttered, lawmakers cancelled numerous appearances and the city came to a virtual standstill as Washington was blasted with its heaviest snowfall of the winter.

It spelled about six inches of trouble for global warming activists who had hoped to swarm the Capitol by the thousands in an effort to force the government to close the Capitol Power Plant, which heats and cools a number of government buildings, including the Supreme Court and the Capitol.

The snowy scene, with temperatures in the mid-20s, was reminiscent of a day in January 2004, when Al Gore made a major address on global warming in New York — on one of the coldest days in the city’s history.

Protest organizers said about 2,500 people braved the blizzard to oppose greenhouse gas emissions, but the shroud of snow wasn’t the only wet blanket in the nation’s capital Monday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called on the architect of the Capitol to stop burning coal at the power plant last week, cancelled her appearance at the rally because her flight to Washington was cancelled.

Michelle Obama canned a public “Read Across America” event and HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan canceled a meeting with the Democratic Caucus because the members of Congress couldn’t get to D.C. An honor cordon at the Pentagon for Afghanistan’s defense minister also had to be called off.

Some protesters couldn’t make it as dozens of flights in the area were delayed or called off, and some couldn’t face the dangerous roads or blustery weather, leaving hundreds safe, if sorry, back at home.”

Let’s sum this up:

Due to the freezing temperatures, civil disobediancers could not be civilly disobedient;  Vandals weren’t able to vandalize the HVAC systems serving many buildings employing thousands of people; Members of congress suddenly became invisible; Nancy Pelosi thinks the Architect of the Capitol shovels coal; Michelle Obama couldn’t read due to the cold; HUD couldn’t formulate more plans for taxpayer-funded housing, and Afganistan’s defense minister is all humpy because he was snubbed.

Meanwhile Al Gore reluctantly admitted that meteorologists and other climate scientists are not credible on the topic of global warming, as none of the nay-sayers have government research funding, and none have served as vice president in any country, province or protectorate.
