Not about Christmas, and Not about Global Warming

One of the reasons my blog has petered out over here is that I took an oath not to blog about the last great religion: the religion of Climate Change, which never quite found the savior it was looking for.

This morning I found this link, and it speaks for itself.

Well, folks, it's tea-time on Sunday and for anyone involved in keeping people moving it has been a hell of a weekend. Thousands have had their journeys wrecked, tens of thousands have been delayed getting away for Christmas; and for those Londoners who feel aggrieved by the performance of any part of our transport services, I can only say that we are doing our level best.

Almost the entire Tube system was running on Sunday and we would have done even better if it had not been for a suicide on the Northern Line, and the temporary stoppage that these tragedies entail.
And thus:
Back in November, when the Met Office was still doing its "mild winter" schtick, Corbyn said it would be the coldest for 100 years. Indeed, it was back in May that he first predicted a snowy December, and he put his own money on a white Christmas about a month before the Met Office made any such forecast. He said that the Met Office would be wrong about last year's mythical "barbecue summer", and he was vindicated. He was closer to the truth about last winter, too.
You should, for your own sake, read the whole thing. The information is prolly not new, but the way he says it is priceless.

Please, don't tell me you believe that the phenomenon known as "Global Warming" only means it's going to keep getting hotter and hotter everywhere? That's a little like people saying they don't believe in Evolution because man didn't descend from monkeys.

Frank, there's a parable here.

How often do we make decisions about our actions based on what we see immediately around us, rather than looking intently at the one who's fueling it in the first place.

BTW, if Augustine had taken an oath like yours, he never would have written "City of God". Just sayin'. But an oath is an oath.

The coming mini ice age is predicted by global warming theory. I'm sure that's what the climate astrologists will tell us.
