Imagine that the stuffy PM still call skeptics names,while England has endured some hard winters of late.

Endured very wet and cold summers of late too.

While his own MET office seriously blows long term forcasting.

LOL
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

Well it needs to be put into the context of his alter ego, Flash Gordon Brown:

I was going to suggest exchanging the word universe with world (or world banking system) but universe is probably the real agenda

Signed.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.  

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.

Not being British I can only wave my hand over the screen furiously to show support. Shy

(I just discovered the "View New Posts" button at the top of the page....why didn't I see that before? Maybe now I won't show up a week late on some things.)

I have just checked every link in this thread to the petition so far.
They all still show 869 on my screen. ?

Yes I did, and reclicking on all the links provided, they all came back as 869.

Now, Friday 2.46pm the figure is 1,572, refreshed number does not change.
Is my browser a day or two behind. ?

Naturally, it's the SUN, OCEANS, and, WATER VAPOUR that does it.
Doing it cooler for the next few decades as well apparently..
Regardless of what climate models project. >>

Let's make it a clean sweep... Revisit all scientific theories that can't be proven, not just global warming, and put the burden of proof on them. This idea of treating some scientists like they're gurus or miracle men, has to stop.

We've been wallowing in misguided information far too long. It's time to rise to the next plateau.
