Wonkette: We Wish John Roberts Would Die

Filed under: General,Scum — Patterico @ 3:46 pm


Chief Justice John Roberts has died in his summer home in Maine. No, not really, but we know you have your fingers crossed.

B-b-but . . . I thought hate speech was a problem only on prominent righty blogs — not prominent lefty blogs. Didn’t Rick Ellensburg say so?

Notes From A Proud Global Warming Skeptic (part 10)

More “consensus” regarding the “science” supposedly showing that global warming is connected to an increase in hurricane activity –

Global warming’s effect on wind patterns and sea temperatures has more than doubled the annual number of hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean over the past century, says a new study by US scientists.

Excerpts from the study by Greg Holland of the National Centre for Atmospheric Research and Peter Webster of Georgia Institute of Technology were released in the United States late on Sunday.

But wait. In the name of scientific “consensus”, let’s just get a confirmation from fellow scientists at Colorado State University

The global warming arguments have been given much attention by many media references to recent papers claiming to show such a linkage.   Despite the global warming of the sea surface that has taken place over the last 3 decades, the global numbers of hurricanes and their intensity have not shown increases in recent years except for the Atlantic (Klotzbach 2006), where recent hurricane increases are likely a result of naturally occurring multi-decadal Atlantic Ocean circulation variations.

YEARS Named Storms Hurricanes Intense Hurricanes (Cat 3-4-5) Global Temperature Increase

1900-1949                                  189                                     101                                    39

1956-2005                                  165                                      83                                     34                        +0.4 degrees C 

Scientific “consensus” at work. Gotta love it.
