They’ll have a lot more trouble selling Red Noses next year:

I also like this for it’s weekly roundup of climate news-

An explosion of outrage was triggered by the detonation of children by alarmists at 10:10, Bill Gates wants fewer customers and the Maldives installed solar panels and blondes.
There’s only three days left before the green day of action on 10/10/10, but I hesitate to start a countdown in case hippies gets the wrong idea.

Remember Michael Crichton?
“Most of us have had some experience interacting with religious fundamentalists, and we understand that one of the problems with fundamentalists is that they have no perspective on themselves. They never recognize that their way of thinking is just one of many other possible ways of thinking, which may be equally useful or good.
“On the contrary, they believe their way is the right way, everyone else is wrong; they are in the business of salvation, and they want to help you to see things the right way.
“They want to help you be saved. They are totally rigid and totally uninterested in opposing points of view.”

Thanks, Leon! I think the first version was just a bit too dark.
And the red nose, of course, what a great link….

MICHAEL MANN THE CLIMATE FREEK WANTS YOU TO VOTE FOR DUMBOCRAT PARTY.
The climate fraud who exists on government grants wants people to vote for democrats because he is afraid of congressional investigations into the climate change fraud. He isafraid of a real investigation unlike the sham that exonerated him. All rational people, notethis and vote accordingly.

JOSH,
More edginess please . . . . don’t let that Curtis dude keep the upper hand.
Try comparing Humphrey Bogart’s line “It was the strawberries . . . ” with a potential line from old Franny, “It was the blueberries . . . . ”

What if you pushed the button and the teacher blew up? Would that be an improvement.

October 8, 2010 7:38 am

I never became a door sales person of press-ready red buttons due to my worry that the one who opens the door goes: Wow, a red button, can I press it a little pleeease?
My therapist went into a great and sourly deep discussion on how it’s impossible for me to be on two sides of the door at the same time.

I’m guessing Michael Mann wishes he had the red button.

Arrogance – “How can I assure young researchers in climate science that if they make a breakthrough in our understanding about how human activity is altering our climate that they, too, will not be dragged through a show trial at a congressional hearing?”
Hey Mikey – how can we assure young researchers in climate science if they make a breakthrough in our understanding about nature being responsible for climate change that you and your colleagues won’t shut them out of leading research journals or deny them work?

I flashed on those devices which moniter your home energy use. They’re probably dual purpose to boot.

Received this through the post today, not sure if it’s genuine 😉
Dear Fellow 10:10 ers,
Following the slight hiccup with the Brit Flick, (a couple of people complained that it wasn’t funny enough and I think we have all learnt a valuable lesson that you should never atomise the sceptical youngsters), we have decided to re-launch the project for next year (2011). But because we will be one year behind schedule, the target reductions for CO2 have been increased to 11%. To mark the occasion we will hold a Celebration party on the 11th November, with the fun getting underway at 11am, when we expect you all to blow your horns and whistles for a couple of minutes, just to make sure that we get everyones attention. We’ve run this passed our Public Perceptions Team and they have confirmed that there shouldn’t be any problems this time. Our in-house Scientific Slogans (SS) Division have recommended that to show just how tolerant and sensitive, we are, towards the views of others and that we don’t support violence, we should use the slogan “Never Atomise The Sceptical Youngsters” to promote the party.
So don’t forget, the N.A.T.S.Y party, 11am on 11/11/11
Make as much noise as you can !!!
Party packs are available, which include:
2 whistles
2 horns
N.A.T.S.Y flag on a Pole
100 Red Button Boxes (unsold novelty items left over from this years campaign)
Yours,
Fanny Arsethong
Dictator of 10:10 Org

If I know Josh, this is still warm-up…no matter how funny ..
There is much more to do on this from a comic perspective, but you have to remember that going over the top can be an issue too with cartoonists.
I bet if we all stay tuned we will see some real fun stuff.

Well done Josh, bringing a bit of colour into our lives, even if it is a bit of a bloody colour.

One push
And the whole world is gone

With the current level of scepticism amongst the general population, I think that teacher would have needed to blow up more kids.
Then again, facts and figures aren’t the green lobbies strongest point are they.

Josh,
How about a new “button” like the metaphorical nuke button the President has being given to Obama from the representatives at 10:10, with of course some phrase like, “Dont worry, your constituents will find it highly amusing.”

October 8, 2010 11:21 am

Someone has a sick sense of humor!
And I like it! LOL

Pamela,
Be nice to the squirrels. They have no idea your stuff doesn’t belong to them!
Locking it up just creates a new challenge for them.
As a kid, there was one living under my back porch.
After a few visits, I had it sitting in my lap picking peanuts out of my hand.
……just don’t run out of peanuts. 🙂

pack of sssquirrels = released into the area wolves
Here in my county in Kansas we have an experiment in deer population controls by the use of cougars or pumas, released into the wild. The creek that runs through my property is one of the trails they follow to the river forested areas, and the upland CRP grass land the deer are currently eating to explode their prey population.
Very little is said locally about the big cats, who are being satellite tracked live via county game warden laptop application. But fresh tracks show up most days on my property, have spotted up to three pumas at a time hunting raccoons on my property.
The neighbor across the road lost most of the 86 goats he put on pasture across the road in a 9 month period, before he gave up raising them.

I strongly suspect that your tongue is firmly lodged within your cheek, but I feel compelled to explain for those whose nations don’t still celebrate the end of World War I. For those of us in nations that do, it is customary to spend a minute of silence at 11 AM on 11/11 reflecting upon the sacrifices of those who didn’t come back and the cost of freedom.
A perfect time for enviro-wackos to be making noise, n’est pas?
