Usually I have “Quote of the week, but in this case, the silence says far more than any words the Goreacle might utter.
At least somebody outside of the blogosphere noticed.

“Snows of Kilimanjaro defy global warming predictions”
Representatives for Al Gore declined to comment on this article.
Could Al Gore look any dumber over this?
Read the full article here, give the journalist some props.

Hardy, a UMass geoscientist who was among 11 co-authors of the paper in the journal Science that sparked the pessimistic Kilimanjaro forecast. “None of us had much history working on that mountain, and we didn’t understand a lot of the complicated processes on the peak like we do now.”
“None of us had much history working on that mountain, and we didn’t understand a lot of the complicated processes on the peak like we do now.”
So WHAT THE HELL were you doing publishing and supporting this AS IF IT WAS CERTAIN?????
I wonder if anyone will demand a retraction from Thompson and Hardy?
Yes, I wonder.
