Friday Holiday Funny

Josh from Cartoons by Josh offers this cheerful holiday message…

If you have not seen it yet, have a look at some of Josh’s cartoons on the WUWT stuff coffee mug link on the sidebar. It beats sending coal.

And with that, I’m off the grid until about January 2nd. Guest posters will be filling in for me. Open threads will also be made available.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

– Anthony

Very good – the Christmas wish (demand?) was in the first screen, “page down” took me to the red button and “no pressure!”
Enjoy your “time off”.

You’ve done a great work this year, Anthony. I can’t give a Nobel Prize but I can pop over to the tip jar.

Anthony,
Many thanks for your efforts on all of our behalf, especially your trip to Oz where I had the pleasure to meet you.
Merry Xmas to you and your family, plus to all of the WUWT ‘family’, pro and con.

Merry Christmas Anthony, Charles, and the rest of the hard working crew at WUWT.
Enjoy your short break and bask in warmth of family and friends.

I’m burning wood as fast as I can throw it in the stove. Not much going on here in terms of industrial CO2 output so I am doing my patriotic part to keep us warm this Christmas season. It can’t hold a candle to what Anthony has done for real, but it’s my piece of flesh.

Good on you Anthony and mods. Thankyou for all your good work throughout the year.
Ya’ll have a very merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.

Merry Christmas everyone!
As I have recently traveled from Oklahoma through Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio to West Virginia, seeing all the broken down trees from ice storms, wind and floods. The slow recovery of The Grand Ole Opry area, Opry Mills Mall, etc…
My new year wish will be pretty obvious, that things will get better.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, Anthony. If we are really good, maybe the other shoe will drop and Santa will deliver a fresh batch of climategate emails!

Something we all can agree on.
Merry Christmas to all

Merry Christmas to everyone.Lets hope that global satellite temperatures continue to fall and arctic/antarctic sea ice extent continues to rise next year then everyone will be happy.It did not get above freezing point here today in Lincoln and the met Office forecasts it will stay well below freezing point tomorrow.

Merry Christmas to all who own, run, moderate or contribute.
And a big thankyou to all those who keep their CO2 output up. We must do something about this goddamn global cooling that everyone’s talking about.

Thank you Anthony, the moderators, the other contributors, and the smart folk who contribute in the comments, for this year’s allotment of climate/weather sanity. Merry Christmas to those for whom it’s appropriate and Happy Holidays for the others.

Merry Christmas all, but could we have our global warming back as it’s a bit cold here in England! No, thought not!

A merry Xmas to all but mostly to the C^4 team at RealClimate (Catastrophical Climate Crew Claque)
The entertainment that this team of gifted comedians has provided since ClimateQuake has been priceless. Their ability to move ones emotions from incandescent rage, through bewildered incomprehension at their arm-waving idiocy, and into side-splitting ROTFL hysteria is a God given gift!
Their genius with satire has converted millions of us tto the right side of the debate.
Thank you dear RC clan, you may be a dwindling group but your services to Mankind will be long, and gratefully, remembered.
PS-and a Happy New Year too.

Just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas Anthony. I click on this blog several times a day and want to extend a big thank-you to you, and all who contribute here. Merry Chrismas, Happy New Year and keep up the great, work you do here – it is so important. Best wishes to you and your family.

Naturally the politicians asked the climate scientists for an explanation of the very white Xmas and in the spirit of the Season, Santa and “The Team” responded accordingly-

Against the fall of night, this shortest day
When all lies drear and spare,
Down twilight paths troop bands of revelers–
Dancing, singing, raising torches high,
Striving to kindle golden Sun again.
So we bedeck Great Halls with boughs,
Weave crimson holly into ivy wreaths,
Amidst dire frost set candle-lamps aglow.
Bare branches yet may burst to green in spring,
Flourish afresh as rushing thaws begin.
Listen! Hear age-old carols echo cheer
As celebrants brave winter’s dark and chill.
Now family and friends do offer praise,
Proclaim peace and prosperity at each New Year.
May all rejoice and chorus in good spirits:
WELCOME, YULE!

So let me get this straight–the global warmers are claiming this snow, cold and ice are the result of “global warming”… That the hysteria they’ve shouted from the roof tops over and over about the earth heating up, drying out, and dusting off was just a pile of conjecture… That they really have no idea what’s happening climate-wise… That everything they’ve been harping and complaining about was just complete and utter foolishness because… because… because they didn’t have a clue to start with and they don’t have any more of a clue now! How more transparently foolish can they be?
And for the rest of you, please do have a Merry Christmas. Next year ought to be very interesting.

A very happy Christmas to Anthony, the mods, and all the readers of WUWT.
