The Almost Friday Funny

Josh from writes in that the emperor of the recent AMS convention has a new wardrobe…

I assume the little people are deniers serfs.

Behold a travesty.

I can claim of having been the first one to write about the (unbearable) NAKEDNESS of climate change

Subjecting a scientist of dignity and repute, such as Dr. Trenberth, to derogation and belittlement, by means of tawdry double entendres is really beyond the pale….No,really I’m serious…Really I am…No, really….ROTFLMAO!
P S Do I Really need a sarc tag for this? Really?

I am glad you call this . . ALMOST Funny Friday

It was interesting that Trenberth’s AMS paper had two cartoons at the end. I have reworked and animated one of those cartoons, which you can see here…

It’s the Emperor’s Trenberthday suit.

Me thinks his weather ‘instrument’ should quickly fade with the cold weather…

It would be quite fun to meet Trenberth socially. Some conversational gambits suggest themselves:
“Is that “Travesty” Trenberth?”
“Found the missing heat yet?”

It’s a pity he didn’t use Mike’s Nature trick…

Much ado about nothing. And I do mean NOTHING!

I note that Josh has tastefully hidden the decline.

True, but yours didn’t make me lol.
Puts a new meaning to Kevin (I looked here, I looked there, I could not find it anywhere) Trenberth.

Talk about funny, has anyone seen The Hill article about Trenberth e l letter to congress.

Baa Humbug

Is it my perception or does the Emperor look quite effeminate?
It’s a travesty that they can’t find his missing clothes.

from the letter signed by Trenberth et al at

Climate change deniers cloak themselves in scientific language, selectively critiquing aspects of mainstream climate science. Sometimes they present alternative hypotheses as an explanation of a particular point, as if the body of evidence were a house of cards standing or falling on one detail; but the edifice of climate science instead rests on a concrete foundation. As an open letter from 255 NAS members noted in the May 2010 Science magazine, no research results have produced any evidence that challenges the overall scientific understanding of what is happening to our planet’s climate and why.
The assertions of climate deniers therefore should not be given scientific weight equal to the comprehensive, peer-reviewed research presented by the vast majority of climate scientists.

So if Trenberth can’t account for the lack of warming, he doesn’t want anyone else to account for the lack of warming either, and it’s a travesty that he wants to gag skeptics on false premises.

Yes, you do. Until I got to the end of the comment I didn’t know it was sarcasm myself.

“Does my North Atlantic Oscillation look big in this?”

Apparently, glaciers aren’t the only thing shrunk by global warming. Of course, it could just be a result of the missing heat.

Josh’s funniest one yet

February 3, 2011 8:20 pm

Delicious! It would best be served with a cabernet sauvignon
because of the significant amount of backside meat involved.

the volcan may provide his missing warmth:-)

To all the WUWT commenters …… too, too funny!
Here I am, sitting at my breakfast table freezing to death in the “sunny southland”, scouring WUWT looking for some hopeful sign that I won’t be “freezing to death” for some time to come, and instead come across this hilarious cartoon & comments.
The energy spent laughing my head off has warmed me considerably! “much ado about nothing”, “tastefully hidden the decline”, “pity didn’t use Mike’s nature trick” …. Ha! whoohoo! whewww! … inhale …. breath … lol.
Having his “weather ‘instrument’ fade with the cold weather” couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy, in my humble, albeit vindictive, opinion.
