Hump Day Hilarity

Honestly, how did I miss this one? This certainly deserves some sort of headline award.

Who knew that NASA was into reanimation of people killed by global warming climate change climate disruption climate challenges?

The full story and comments are priceless, here.

There’s some other humor afoot today too. We all need humor for hump day and these should brighten even the most dreary Monday Wednesday.

    Great shot! [snip, thanks - but let's leave the speculation out]

    Uhmm., Anthony…..

    “There’s some other humor afoot today too. We all need humor for Mondays and these should brighten even the most dreary Monday.”

    So, shouldn’t we save this for an actual Monday? :-) You made me check my calendar, ….twice!

    REPLY: Heh, I have several humor headlines in my blogging template, Monday Mirthiness, Hump Day Hilarity, Friday Funny, and Sunday Silly. I just pressed the wrong one. Fixed, thanks, refresh. OTOH this thread is about funny things and giving people a laugh, so I’ve helped it along with my own mistake. – Anthony

  3. D Bonson says:

    Romm and Hansen attempt to create more global warming zombies. Fortunately, for the future of humanity, it is only contagious among those with a low intelligence.

  4. Monday? Is today Monday? What time zone are you in?

    REPLY: One, very far far away. I meant to say, “Hump Day Hilarity”, pressed the wrong title generator, thanks- Anthony

  5. M.A.DeLuca says:

    Monday? But … it’s Wednesday, right?

    Shoot, I have a sneaking suspicion there’s a whooshing noise going over my head.

    I knew I was WELL past Monday where I live…*ahem*. But what is it with NASA these days? Latest launch, to study “stuff in the air and climate”, failed. The last launch (Was it NASA?) to study “stuff in the air (CO2) and climate” also failed. They can send Voyager 1 & 2 and Cassini without launch issues?

    ……..
    In the old days NASA was run by real engineers, now it is the ‘play station’ generation.

  8. Patrick Davis says:

    “Vuk etc. says:

    Indeed. Computer animations…almost as “robust” as the Aussie “She’ll be right mate!” attitude.

  9. ShrNfr says:

    When I was empoyed, Wednesday was a workday, Are we paying Hansen for this?

  10. ShrNfr says:

    The reference to Lizards makes me think that this is something Charlie Johnson has a hand in. I had the honor of having my IP blocked by him. Seems I was not suitably sympathetic and pc enough of about the picture of Obama as a Paupau New Guinea resident meant to imply a witch doctor. I came out in favor of witch doctors since we have gotten a fair amount of our medications from them over time. He has gone over to the dark side with the warmistas lately. Never trust a web site designer to understand physics. Some do, most don’t.

  11. James really needs some lessons on how to dress. It’s almost as bad too look at his appearance as to read his end of the world science.

    On a more serious note, how much is NASA going to be embarrassed by James Hansen’s silly global warming demonstrations before they do something about him? This photo belongs in the WWF or Greenpeace not associated with NASA.

    Enough already!

  12. Rick K says:

    You can tell which one works at NASA. He’s the one with the hat…

  13. John Kehr says:

    I know I am about tired of Hansen. I was reading his 1998 paper to contrast to Dr. Harde’s paper that showed a total global response of 0.45C to a CO2 doubling. I gotta say that Hansen is a bit outclassed by what Harde put together.

    http://theinconvenientskeptic.com/2011/03/new-climate-sensitivityresponse-to-co2-study/

    Hansen calling on Obama to educate is a perfect case of the blind leading the blind. Yikes.

  14. Shevva says:

    ‘We must convert to clean energy – on an emergency basis! – to prevent the worst consequences of climate change that will continue to worsen into the foreseeable future. An even greater imperative, is that we must stop burning fuel now to rescue plants, which are the base of the food chain…or mass starvation will ensue’ – http://witsendnj.blogspot.com/2010/10/kicking-koch-habit_10.html

    Do Zombies wear tin foil hats?

  15. Tom in Florida says:

    You gotta love Hansom Jim Hanson who is still wearing his hat even while under the shade of a CO2 nourished tree. Perhaps he is looking at one of Josh’s cartoons.

  16. Deekaman says:

    Remember it’s now “Koch” because it’s easier to spell than “Halliburton”.

  17. Jeff Carlson says:

    between building SkyNet and ushering in the zombie apocalypse what else is NASA doing to end human life on Planet earth ? curious minds want to know …

  18. Shevva says:

    And a link from my comment above shows this –

    Retired physicist, University of Virginia

    http://weirddream.com/ says it is from Feb ’10 so it’s probably old news.

  19. Rhoda R says:

    Given the hat, I think Hansen’s Walter Mitty image is that of Indiana Jones.

  20. Rhoda R says:

    I think that picture needs to be sent to all senators and representatives. Maybe we DO need to defund NASA if this is all they can get up to successfully.

  21. TomRude says:

    OT: in humour, can we add this Toronto pianist and composer who will perform his own creation “Earth Hour” because some of the ticket funds collected will go to help the -multimillion yearly budget of- WWF?
    http://thestar.blogs.com/soundmind/2011/03/tonight-pianist-frank-horvat-and-his-audience-in-the-dark-for-hart-house-concert.html#comments
    I wonder if he collects for WWF or if it’s the reverse… LOL

  22. Wayne Delbeke says:

    The last shuttle landing just occurred.

    And here we have Hansen dressed in 1950’s attire looking just like a character out of “Dragnet:.

    Much irony.

  23. Dave says:

    Tell me again… which one of the three is a zombie?

    ===============================================
    Things that make you go ….hmmm.
    In an attempt to keep with the current theme of levity, I shan’t go into the depths of emotions I feel about NASA’s apparent lack of competence in putting objects into space anymore.

    So what’s with ‘death train’s’ hat thingy going on? It looks as if he’s going over his lines for a “Scary Movie”/”Indiana Jones” movie. And they wonder why people don’t take them seriously?

  25. R. Shearer says:

    Glad to see the NPR folks get out from behind the desk! That Hansen gets around though doesn’t he. I’d like to have his frequent flyer miles.

    His dress could be trademarked, best described as climate scientist Nouveau, consisting of khaki pants and Indiana Jones style fedora (with shirt and tie).

  26. RDunn says:

    Zombies (and AGW proponents) are always in search of (and in need of) brains.

  27. TrueNorthist says:

    Thanks for that! Too funny…

    I have posted a story at my site that might be good for a laugh.

    Discovery Lands Safely, Then Taken Out Back and Shot.

    Have a fun day!

  28. Al Gored says:

    Finally. A photograph of the whole consensus. And they’re doing peer review right there on the spot!

    I assume that Hansen’s peer to his right must be Chuck, reading about the future:

    “If you want to know the scientific consensus on global warming, read the reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But if you want to know what the consensus will be ten years from now, read Jim Hansen’s work.”

    — Dr. Chuck Kutscher, National Renewable Energy Laboratory and American Solar Energy Society (ASES), editor of ASES report “Tackling Climate Change in the U.S.

    And Hansen’s peer to his left, and, really, to almost everybody’s left, must be Bill, in awe and looking for Hansen’s fruits:

    “Jim Hansen is the planet’s great hero. He offered us the warning we needed twenty years ago, and has worked with enormous courage ever since to try and make sure we heeded it. We’ll know before long if that effort bears fruit—if it does, literally no one deserves more credit than Dr. Hansen.”

    — Bill McKibben, coordinator 350.org and author of The End of Nature

    So who’s holding the other end of that sign? Al Gore, who has been staying out of sight a lot lately due to insufficient masseuse relief? Or Arnold’s relative?

    “Dr. James Hansen is Paul Revere to the foreboding tyranny of climate chaos—a modern-day hero who has braved criticism and censure and put his career and fortune at stake to issue the call to arms against the apocalyptic forces of ignorance and greed.”

    — Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

    Anyhow, great photo. So many potential uses in the department of ridicule.

  29. Al Gored says:

    Oops. Left this last fragment dangling. Should have been deleted. It is not a zombie, it is one of Hansen’s peers.

  30. Russ says:

    I guess Halloween came early, but the scariest one is the one in the middle dressed up like Hanson.

  31. TrueNorthist says:

    I just realised I may have broken a rule by posting a link to my site without permission. My sincere apologies! I just got caught up in the moment. It wont happen again.

    Thanks Anthony.

  32. ShrNfr says:

    fwiw, while some people have pointed out to me locally that oct 14. 2010 was not wednesday, it was a thursday, I must assume that the picture was taken on the previous day since it talks about “this afternoon” and is datelined 9:00 AM.

  34. Jimbo says:

    No wonder NASA’s rocket launches and satellites are failing. They should spend less time on this nonsense and more time looking staring into space. ;O)

  35. DJ says:

    I recognize that photo!
    It’s the band The GasHansens, on tour to promote their latest album.
    It’s a heavy-carbon group that’s losing popularity, partly due to its inability to keep a drummer. –Drummers keep self-combusting (Same problem plagued Spinal Tap) from their extreme carbon footprints that come from extensive travel for self promotion.

    Another problem with the band is that their followers have a religious, cult like mentality, and think that a gas that they themselves emit is the cause of all the world’s ills.

    Much of their early appeal caught on with small children who would dress up like the band members once a year and solicit candy, which in turn they’d eat and go into dervish-like sugar fueled frenzies.

  36. Betapug says:

    We could contrast this apogee of the flight from rational science with the celebration of the life sustaining accomplishments of Anthony’s distant relative at the perigee:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/8367976/James-Watt-Britains-head-of-steam.html

    Perhaps we will see James Watt soon vilified in textbooks and hanging in effigy as the Great Enabler of Global Warming….along with his friend Joseph Black, who discovered the evil that is CO2.

    D Bonson says (March 9, 2011 at 8:54 am): “Romm and Hansen attempt to create more global warming zombies. Fortunately, for the future of humanity, it is only contagious among those with a low intelligence.”

    “The Farce can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.” :-)

  38. Phil M2. says:

    ‘Discovery Lands Safely, Then Taken Out Back and Shot.’

    If you need help chopping the wings off then our (UK) Government is up to the task. It has just chopped the wings off of our nimrods (AWACS to you) and our harriers. Just ship it over and we will smash it for you.

    We can’t build S**t anymore but we sure can smash stuff up.

    Sad but true.

  39. Rob R says:

    How did they get Homer Simpson to the demonstration? I thought he was the unrepentant cause of global warming.

  40. TrueNorthist says:

    I said I wouldn’t do this again without asking, so here’s me asking again! I just posted a new article you might also find funny and perhaps appropriate for this comment thread? It’s G rated and suitable for all ages with some light political satire.

    More Hump Day Funnies?

    Cheers!

    Remember it’s now “Koch” because it’s easier to spell than “Halliburton”.

    I saw a corny political movie a couple of days ago, Syriana, with George Clooney. It had all these figments of political left wing imaginations. It was so corny that at one point I yelled at the screen “Where’s the Halliburton microfilm?!” and laughed.

  43. David C. Greene says:

    WUWT is my favorite site – I visit at least five times per day. However, most of the comments are trivial and degrade instead of enhance the site’s effectiveness. Stooping to ridicule does nothing to strengthen the case for basing decisions on sound science. Let’s clean up our act!

  44. David C. Greene

    But James Hansen just begs to be made fun of.

  45. Gail Zawacki says:

    First let me say I am thrilled to have been linked, albeit by second-hand, to WUWT, the premiere [SNIP] blog in the US of A. Usually everything I have to say is ignominiously ignored – by climate scientists, climate activists, and [SNIP] alike. So it’s really special to be singled out for notice, whether for ridicule or serious recognition.

    I thought I should step in to clear up some misunderstandings expressed here by some commenters.

    1. Wonkette is SNARK. In other words, the headline is not making fun of Dr. Hansen, it’s making fun of…oh, never mind.

    2. Climate Zombies is a fairly specific term that refers to the outright deceptions, distortions, and lies of omission that are repeated over and over by climate [SNIP], whether professional (paid by industry) or amateur hobbyists – in spite of the fact that said bunk has been thoroughly and technically demolished by legitimate scientific sources, again and again. Like zombies, they rise from the dead.

    3. Please send more traffic and stupid comments to my blog. As ecosystems collapse all around, such distractions are terrifically amusing to me, and I could use the humor.

    No need to explain. We can see them in the photo. Too bad the other two are wearing masks.

    Funny then that it’s the alarmist side that dodges debates.

    OT, but some nasty flooding here in mountainous western MD — almost 4″ rain-equivalent (mixed w/some snow) in the last couple days. And the ground had (just) finally thawed. Areas w/snow & still-frozen ground to the north are going to be worse.

    If only I hadn’t driven my CO2-spewing car the other day…

    No, wait. Relax. It was probably Mann flying to Hawaii. Or there still may be some lag effect from the Climate Zombies gathering at Cancun.
