Are You Thinking What James Is Thinking?

As I began reading the following bit from the best, I of course thought of Doxie, Voxie's resident warmalarmist, no longer in residence. Oh how he loved his models, and I'm not talking about the sort of models normal guys love, I assure you.

And what follows isn't the first time I've thought of Doxie recently, oh no. Hey, how about those models that closed Europe? You know the ones – the computer models that said airplanes can't fly because ash from the unpronounceable Icelandic volcano made it impossible? WRONG! And not only were the models out of this world nuts, but the bureaucrats, aka Doxiecrats, relying on them didn't concern themselves with something else that was out of this world and which might have given them a more accurate picture – satellite images.

Enter Taranto:

Who Froze the Tools?

"Warming temperatures are melting patches of ice that have been in place for thousands of years in the mountains of the Canadian High Arctic and in turn revealing a treasure trove of ancient hunting tools," LiveScience reports. Examples:

In 1997, sheep hunters discovered a 4,300-year-old dart shaft in caribou dung that had become exposed as the ice receded. . . . [Archaeologist Tom] Andrews and his team (including members of the indigenous Shutaot'ine or Mountain Dene) have found 2,400-year-old spear throwing tools, a 1000-year-old ground squirrel snare, and bows and arrows dating back 850 years.

This kind of misses the big picture, doesn't it? "Global warming" is supposed to be responsible for thawing all these tools, but in order for them to have been frozen in the first place, it has to have been warmer than today 850, 1,000, 2,400 and 4,300 years ago. Maybe they'll unfreeze a lot full of sport-utility vehicles to explain the global warming then.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Good gracious I hope not! Neither would I want to be the anthropologist unearthing our times!

    The ash cloud scare of 2010 is just another example of the Nanny State gone amok but hang onto your wallet because it's coming our way.
