Josh of cartoons by Josh writes to go along with his newest cartoons:
Paragraph Updated: This week we had stories about how climate indicators show that the globe is warming.
(7 or 11 depending on how confused you get by the story – H/t Matt at WUWT for helping me out here)
Not very controversial, you might say – but the slightly nutty tone attracted my attention – “See the climate is getting hotter therefore we are doomed” kind of thing. Not sure where the idea of breakfast cereal and Kool Aid Kats came from.
Talking of nutty flakiness, here is another story at Roger Pielke Jr on ‘Silly Science’ about the vast hordes of Mexicans that are set to invade the US as soon as it get too hot in Mexico. Why the penguin? Well, all the Colombians will be moving to Mexico and all the Ecuadorians to Columbia and all the Peruvians, etc etc…leaving Chile free to become home to all the Antarctic penguins – at least I think that’s the logic.
Michael Oppenheimer even wrote a response which was inspiring.
