A Mayan shaman, Harold Camping and Michael Mann walk into a bar. The bartender recognized them, and immediately started shouting “NO NO NO, GET OUT, WE DON’T SERVE YOUR KIND IN HERE!”
Michael Mann indignantly looked at the other two, realized who they were, understood the connection the bartender had made, and started protesting that he has nothing in common with unscientific doomsday kooks, saying “I never said the world WOULD end. I said it COULD end.”
The bartender thought about this for a moment, then said, “You’re right. You never did say when. Mann, get out, or I call the cops. But the other two can stay, and their first drink is on the house.”
Michael Mann, now livid, wailed “but they’re just crazy. I have science on my side. I have SKILL!”
The bartender said, “well, you may have skill, but at least they had the cajones to pick an exact date.”
Merry Christmas to Anthony, and all WUWT readers and contributors. Thank you for all you do.

It’s not quite Big-Oil or other Fossil-fuelled investment but, at least, it’s given honestly as a small ‘thank-you’ to those tiddlers who provide entertainment well above their weight!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone – And I mean EVERYONE! – from Michael / Mogamboguru from Germany.
Mankind has survived lions and ice ages for two million years, has made the Toba-bottleneck, two hot world wars and a nuclear cold war – and now even the (wrongly anticipated) end of the world as predicted by the Mayans (Only that they didn’t predict the End of the world, yet only anticipated the end of the 13th and the beginning of the 14th 400-year-cycle of the Mayan multi-milennia calendar; so much for the proper reporting of the mass media!).
With respect to the above, I think that chances for mankind surviving a fluctuation of approx 0,5 degrees Centigrade above and below this beautiful world’s atmosphere’s averal global temperature of 14 degrees Centigrade (or was that 15…?) are resoundingly EXCELLENT!
In this light, again:
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

December 22, 2012 1:56 am

Brilliant: my season’s cheerfulness is, unfortunately, a boring answer to the demarcation issue between the scientists who genuinely believe in back radiation therefore the ‘consensus’, and those who do not!
It concerns whether two bodies in radiative equilibrium continue to transmit real energy to each other, thus cancelling out the heat losses, or whether the equilibrium stops such energy transfer and only net radiative flux can do thermodynamic work.
The proof of the latter is very simple. A pyrometer measures the correct temperature independently of parallel forced convective heat transfer when you measure the latter by an embedded thermocouple. It does so because it measures the vibrationally-activated fraction of the available surface states that can transfer internal kinetic energy to adsorbed gas molecules or to the electromagnetic continuum.
Thus there is no radiative energy transfer from either body to the other at thermal equilibrium. The proof of the physics is via Poynting’s Theorem. Radiative energy transfer is by the net flux only, the vector sum of all the Poynting Vectors, which is zero when thermodynamic temperatures are the same. QED and a Happy New Year which will show substantial cooling shown by what’s happening in the Arctic and in Russia………;o)

December 22, 2012 4:10 am

Thank you, Anthony and Josh – excellent!
And, in case any of you would like a few more climate carols to sing this Christmas, I offer the following:
WARM CHRISTMAS
I’m dreaming of a warm Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know,
Until strong declining in our Sun’s shining
Brought on a time of ice and snow,
I’m dreaming of a warm Christmas
With every thought that I can form.
May you keep from cold, snow and storm!
And may all your Christmases be warm.
O COME, ALL YE FAITHFUL
O come, all ye faithful,
Greenies, leftists, journos,
O come, all believers in agendas green.
See droughts and storming?
Preach “That’s Global Warming!”
O come hide the decline,
O come hide the decline,
O come hide the decline,
God! It’s cold.
DECK THE HALLS
Deck the halls with lots of lolly,
Falalala la, lala la la.
‘Tis the season of green folly,
Falalala la, lala la la,
We’ve just got a fat new grant,
Lies to tell and fear to plant,
So we’re feeling rather jolly,
Falalala la for Climate Change!
HARK! THE WARMIST CHORUS SINGS
Hark! The warmist chorus sings,
Praise to Michael Mann’s tree-rings.
So they say, these demonstrate
Warming at alarming rate.
CO2 they say’s the problem,
6 degrees and more per double’em.
So we must shut down the West,
And give trillions to the Rest.
Hark! The warmist chorus sings,
“We will tax you till it stings!”
But Reality intrudes;
Slowly, slowly, babes and dudes
Come to know the warmist meme
Ain’t as truthful as may seem.
Honesty is re-asserted,
Science is no more perverted,
Human progress is resumed,
Gone’s the thinking “we’re all doomed.”
Hark! We human beings say,
We can find a better way.
Merry Christmas to all,
Neil

Fantastic. I got them all but the three henchmen.
REPLY: Henchmen tend to be nameless, working behind the scenes as a means to an end, so don’t feel bad that you don’t recognize them. Essentially they are a metaphor for people who do some unsavory things in support of the cause. Peter Gleick is a good example of someone who created a “nameless” identity and worked behind the scenes. I had thought about “Six Gleicks explaining”, but one of him is enough. – Anthony

“Winter Wonderland”
Hockey sticks, are a snappin’.
They don’t tell what’s been happenin’
We’re not buyin’ the fright
They’re desperate tonight
Erasin’ the winter wonderland!
Gone away are old records
Here to stay are new records
Change the old logs
String ‘em along
Erasin’ the winter wonderland!
In the graphing Hansen built a strawman
He said,”As long as CO2 abounds,
More heat until we’re fri-ed!”
But we know that Michael Mann is just a clown!
They say we’ll perspire
As the CO2 keeps going higher
But we’re unafraid
See through plots that they’ve laid
Erasin’ the winter wonderland!

I wrote my own little Christmas song. Here goes:
LOTS OF SNOW
IPCC news are frightful
But it’s just a load of sh*t full
Just a tiny thing they don’t know:
Lots of snow! Lots of snow! Lots of snow!
No signs of their scandals stopping
So we bought some corn for popping
Credibility is way down low
Lots of snow! Lots of snow! Lots of snow!
When they finally p*ss us off
As their hockey sticks are broken
We all get the final laugh
When our dear old Sun has spoken
Their “science” is slowly dying
So, it’s time for their good-bying
Antarctica steadily grows
And lots of snow! Lots of snow! Lots of snow!

It’s fun to write and read such things as you Anthony have done.
I don’t think I’ve actually said it yet but:
“Merry Christmas to all! Keep dispelling the fright!”

Repent regardless, deniers, or your global warming will cause genocide of the Mayan Christmas, and malfunction of Santa’s globespanning asteroid.

Hmmm…When did “Santa” enter the scene? All those reindeer covering all those miles must release bunches and bunches of CO2. Did he deliver the first “hockey stick”? Maybe they are the cause of CAGW! (Maybe we should rename it “CRGW”? “CSGW”? If he was pulled by bovines then we could call it what it is, “BSGW”!)

A good time to simply wish you and yours the very best in the new year, Anthony. You, your site, your posters, mods and commenters make this a rare site of truth, information and much-needed levity. You are the hub around which much of the CAGW world spins. Your dedication is inspiring and I thank you for your tireless efforts to bring light and sanity to a dark and crazy world. Carry on…

Anthony, I offer my most sincere appreciation to you for bringing us this site. There is no other like it!
The intellectual energy expended and focused here by you, the guest posts, and commenters is absolutely astounding. If there was only some way to estimate the total man hours focused on WUWT from all viewing including the lurkers! Just think about that for a moment!
Merry Christmas and a joyful holiday to all (even the trolls, sorry but no calendars).

In my comment above I should have written “If there was only some way to estimate the total man hours focused on WUWT from all including viewing by the lurkers!”
