Tonight's Star Prize, The Blow on the Head!

For Gobal Warming denial.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, investigated several key issues that sceptics claim can skew global warming figures and found they had no meaningful effect on world temperature trends.
Researchers at the Berkeley Earth project compiled more than a billion temperature records dating back to the 1800s from 15 sources around the world and found that the average global land temperature has risen by around 1C since the mid-1950s.
I had been waiting for these people to make their announcement and now they have. Maybe they should have waited to be peer-reviewed or maybe not. It doesn't really matter since this was bound to happen whatever they did
Nevertheless, one prominent US climate sceptic, Anthony Watts, claimed to have identified a "basic procedural error" concerning time periods used in the research, and urged the authors to revise the paper.
Watts has trouble telling the time and doesn't see why all that years and months shit should be important. James Hansen, who knows a thing or two about being smeared by the denial creeps,  pegs it:
deniers will then decide that he is a crook or has some ulterior motive.
But, you know, it ain't gonna change anything. The Corparotocracy  will find a way to keep on, keepin' on, you betcha.
Will no one think of the Goths????

Watts all this about peas, gloves, and misunderstanding?

As a former television meteorologist, I feel this man has all the credibility he needs. Or deserves.

Ahem, Mr. so-called McGravitas. He has a website called "Watts up with that?" so, like, not a lightweight.

it makes a zombie fucking SICK to listen to these corporate whores and knob-slurping suck up barely-middle-class graspers think that a handful of misquoted emails or outlier data points somehow contradict BILLIONS OF DATA POINTS.

Yes, it will get cold in Wisconsin this winter, you fuck-shovels. No, that does not mean that the planet is not warming. In fact, we expect volatile, vicious storms with large amounts of precipitation, which is COMPLETELY FUCKING PREDICTED BY THE SCIENTISTS.

Fuck DAMN it, you morons, all of this has been proven far beyond a fare-thee-well; while I know you are intellectually incapable of understanding a scientific explanation beyond the impulse demonstration of a 2x4 upside of your skull, are you THAT invested in pissing off liberals that devastation of the entire planetary surface is PLEASING to you?

I'll have you know that a group of them are already building a giant spaceship to carry them off to a newer, barren and more forlorn world. So while teh Earth-bound may be pitiable, fret not for teh Astrogoths.

They will be forced further and further north to avoid rising temperatures until they become Eskemos.

At some blogs where the moderators wear rotated hashtags on their shoulders, you'd get banned for that joke. BUT NOT HERE!
