Quote of the Day

This QOTD (from this source) is actually from a couple of weeks ago.  It appeared in The Smallest Minority, a blog I highly recommend and one that I’ve recently added to my “daily dose” in the RSS reader.

No doubt the warmist crowd will be quick to express outrage at this blatant confusion of global climate with local weather, but that won’t wash. The Met makes its short-term forecasts on the basis of the same brand of massive computer power and Rube Goldberg modelling used to project the global climate. The suggestion that forecasting the climate is easier than forecasting the weather comes into the same category as acknowledging that governments couldn’t run a lemonade stand, but then believing that they can “manage” an economy.

    Not really a comment on your post, but I found this to be quite entertaining and felt a need to share.

    Live squirrel grenade. Scottish attack squirrel of death. I kept waiting for the “ninja assassin squirrel” reference, but then I realized that would be an obscure Kawasaki reference.

    Thanks for the link, Ken.
